Bishop Anthanasius Schneider—an active bishop in good-standing—calls for a condemnation of the post-conciliar errors that have followed in Vatican II's wake.

On December 17, 2010, during a colloquium in Rome organized by the Franciscans Friars of the Immaculate on the topic “Vatican II, a pastoral council—a historical, philosophical and theological analysis”, Bishop Athanasius Schneider, Auxiliary Bishop of Karaganda (Kazakhstan), asked for the compilation of a Syllabus that would infallibly condemn “the errors in interpreting the Second Vatican Council”.

The reason, he explained, is that only the supreme Magisterium of the Church—that of the pope or of a new ecumenical council—can correct the abuses and errors that resulted from Vatican II and adjust our understanding and implementation of it in the light of Catholic tradition.

Declaring that it was scarcely possible to convoke a new council before another 500 years had passed…, he considered that we should appeal from it [Vatican II] to the supreme magisterium of the pope. Hence this request for a new Syllabus which would juxtapose the condemned errors and their orthodox interpretation.

Other speakers during this colloquium were Msgr. Brunero Gherardini, author of the book The Ecumenical Vatican Council II: A much-needed discussion (2009), and Prof. Roberto de Mattei, an Italian historian and author of a recent volume on the Council entitled The Second Vatican Council: an unwritten story [who will be speaking here in the USA at the October 2013 Angelus Press Conference: "They Have Uncrowned Her; Our Lady Since the Council"].  Both speakers responded to critiques that their books have elicited, especially in conservative conciliar circles determined to defend the infallibility of the Council.
