POPE FRANCIS GAVE INVALID SACRAMENT IN EASTER NIGHT MASS 2013?
Pope Francis intended to give to 4 persons the sacrament of confirmation.
The sacrament of confirmation is the baptism with the Holy Spirit.
The baptism is performed by a bishop (priest) praying and laying hands on the one who is to be baptised with the Holy Spirit.
We can read about this in the bible for example in Acts 8,17 „Then Peter and John placed their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.“
BUT POPE FRANCIS DID NOT LAY HANDS ON THE PERSONS HE WAS SUPOSED TO BAPTISE WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT !
This would mean that the sacrament was given invalid to those persons ?
Ofcourse the rites of confirmation has been expanded and things have been added.
Pope Paul VI gave the rite of confirmation as church law for the Roman Catholic Church on August 15th in 1971 with the
APOSTOLIC CONSTITUTION ON THE SACRAMENT OF CONFIRMATION
In this apostolic constitution we can read:
„Therefore, in order that the revision of the rite of confirmation may, as is fitting, include
even the essence of the sacramental rite, by our supreme apostolic authority we decree
and lay down that in the Latin Church the following are to be observed for the future.
THE SACRAMENT OF CONFIRMATION IS CONFERRED THROUGH THE
ANOINTING WITH CHRISM ON THE FOREHAND, WHICH IS DONE BY THE
LAYING ON OF THE HAND, AND THROUGH THE WORDS: BE SEALED WITH
THE GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
But the laying of hands on the elect, carried outwith the prescribed prayer before the
anointing, is still to be regarded as very important, even if it is not of the essence of the
sacramental rite: it contributes to the complete perfection of the rite and to a more
thorough understanding of the sacrament. It isevident that this prior laying on of hands
differs from the later laying on of the hand in the anointing of the forehead. “
So we all can see that there are 2 laying hands on, one is important and the other one is essential.
Pope Francis did not lay hands on this persons at all. He only anointed with chrisam.
SO IT REALY LOOKS LIKE THE SACRAMENT WAS GIVEN INVALID !
