“The Catholic faith is indeed not the private property of the pastor of a parish, nor of the bishop of a diocese, and not even of a pope… The Catholic faith is greater. It precedes and it transcends the pastors of the Church because they also are the first ones who have to obey the faith–exemplarily… The Catholic faith belongs to all times, to all places, and to all generations of Catholics, starting with the Apostles and going through all the Fathers, the Doctors of the Church, and all the saints we know…
“Nowadays we can [see] the introduction of some changes and ruptures in the presentation of the truths regarding doctrine and morals… To hide and to mask such changes, there are used such seductive expressions as ‘paradigm shift’ or ‘hermeneutic of continuity,’ even when the obvious sense of the changes contradicts the constant belief and the constant practise of the Church… In such situations, you should say ‘I know my Catholic faith. I will not permit [myself] to be confused by whomever. For the sake of this faith, I am willing to die’”
“The Catholic faith cannot admit a change, or a rupture, or a reinterpretation into another signification than it has been constantly believed and taught throughout 2000 years… Our paradigm is Christ–the same yesterday, today and forever. There is no shift of paradigm…” (Bishop Athanasius Schneider, from the LifeSiteNews highlights of his prerecorded video lecture at the 2018 Catholic Identity Conference)
