How would you answer it?[/quote:2b7nou33]
I have. I was involved with the Lefebvre movement, even a seminarian in their seminary. I left when it became clear that they were headed toward open schism. I still assist primarily at the Traditional Latin Mass, and the Eastern Catholic Liturgies, (I do not think the new rites are invalid, or wrong) but I could not go into schism because I thought I knew better than the Church Jesus promised He would not abandon.

I do understand that Lutherans, and others think they are a purified Church, and Catholic in the sense of being Christ’s universal Church. But I hold that union with Peter, as Christ’s vicar is part of what He intended.
