Website Review: CMRI-Religious Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen
A review based on: http://www.cmri.org
The Religious Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen is a congregation of priests, brothers and sisters "dedicated to preserving the Tridentine Latin Mass and traditional Church Doctrine." They state that a CMRI “priest is unlike most priests today because he serves at the behest of Jesus Christ and the Roman Catholic Church — not the modernistic Conciliar Church. . . . This is coupled with an oath never to offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in any other manner than that prescribed by Pope St. Pius V and the holy Council of Trent.”
This congregation has explicitly rejected the authority, clergy, and history of the Church since Vatican II, claiming that the papacy has been vacant. In their desire to uphold the infallible teaching of the Church promised by Christ, they have illogically dismissed the current Magisterium because it has not conceded to their personal preferences regarding the Mass and because of their inability to distinguish dissident teachings from the official teachings of the Church. This congregation has not only broken from the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, but leads many of the faithful into grievous confusion and error.
Only a few of the Congregation's grave errors are listed on this review. However, numerous errors are contained in this site and we advise users to avoid it altogether.
