1. Abjuration and profession of Faith. 2. Absolution from Censures 3. Sacramental confession, absolution 4. Aupllying in cermenonies omitted in baptism.
The section on the absolution of censures is broken down into the following sub-headings:
1. The abjuradtion 2. The nature of delict and censure 3. The classes of persons affected by penalty for defection from the Faith. 4. The penalty 5. Absolution from the censure in the internal forum 6. Absolution from the censure in the external forum
One may ask, how is this section relevant to the crisis? Beginning in 1963, all Catholics recognized Paul VI as Pope, and all priests prayed for him in their masses across the world. Some modern sedevacantist thinkers believe that the adherence to Paul VI placed one automatically in the new Conciliar sect created under his leadership.
One problem for these folks is that re-entry into the Catholic Church from a sect is not as simple as they appear to think. If one left the Catholic Church to join the Conciliar sect, he could not simply just show up at the SSPX, CMRI, independent chapels, etc., and just state he’s Catholic now. There is a process to rejoin the Church, most especially the formal abjuration, which must be followed for those coming back to the Church from sects, and I would urge Catholics to familiarize themselves with this. If one had left the Church to join a sect, one cannot simply show up and present himself as a Catholic and begin receiving Holy Commion. Even confessing this sin to a priest is not enough, one who has left the Church to join a sect must formally re-join the Church.
I am not aware of even a single traditionalist bishop or priest that requires that this process must be followed for those who once believed in the claims of Paul VI and his successors or attended the Novus Ordo Missae. Implicit in this lack of enforcement of the required process of rejoining this Church from sects is an acknowledgement that Catholics in this situation were not members of the sect at all, but merely innocent victims that were being duped by this new sect.
There is a reason that Archbishop Lefebvre and the other bishops and priests who came along among the various groups never presumed that Catholics who believed in Paul VI and his successors claims, or attended the Novus Ordo were by that fact members of a sect who must rejoin the Church prior to being recognized as Catholics and permitted to approach the Communion rail.
I would also urge readers to very carefully read pages 126-133 which excellently cover in detail what constitutes apostates, heretics and schismatics. One observation I have noticed is that these terms are used in a popular and imprecise sense by many modern sedevacantist thinkers, who have apparently not carefully read these definitions, and have just rashly assumed meanings not used by the Church.

Marya Dabrowski: I'm going to try to have the kids put out their shoes tonight; first time ever!

Clotilde: We got a new St. Nicholas statue and I was very pleased with the quality! I buy gold coins at Aldis for the shoes and usually they get new clothes or some PJs. We went to DL for the feast.

Marya Dabrowski: Gold coins are a good idea. My kids only got gum or tic-tacs or a couple pieces of chocolate. I wish the toddler would have not been one of the first ones up to keep digging through everyone's shoes.

Pacelli: I looked into Taylor years ago, and I am not convinced about the validity of his line,, so I do not advise anyone to go to those who received orders through his line.

carloscamejo: Some prelates seem to let anyone be "consecrated" a bishop, it seems. If one had made up that they went to med school and presented themselves as a doctor, no sane person would allow you to toy with someone's physical health like that.
