Website Review: Most Holy Family Monastery

A review based on: http://www.mostholyfamilymonastery.com

Description

Most Holy Family Monastery, is a dissident, sedevacantist organization that challenges the papal authority of Pope John Paul II. Begun by two brothers, Peter and Michael Dimond, it manages to spew forth more hatred of the authentic Magisterium than you would expect to find on a virulently anti-Catholic site.

The brothers claim that the present Catholic Magisterium and all the Popes since 1958 are “Anti-popes.” The site is replete with accusations against Pope Benedict and Vatican II and other doctrine/teachings of the Catholic Church.

The brothers have become their own magisterium, and in following their "logic" one must conclude that the gates of hell have prevailed against the Church. They are not unlike Martin Luther and John Calvin.

A Catholic encountering their written material or website should run—not walk—in the opposite direction, never forgetting that Christ promised to Peter, "Thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven."

The Catholic Register in the Diocese of Lincoln, NE commented on their magazine, A Voice Crying in the Wilderness saying,

That magazine, slick and expensive, is very anti-Catholic, and seems to have the purpose of luring unsuspecting Catholics into grave error and schism. There is no "Most Holy Family Monastery" in Fillmore, New York, listed in the official Catholic Directory.
