Statement from Archbishop David Bell:
Schism is the refusal of submission to the Roman Pope / Patriarch and or of communion with the members of the Roman Catholic Church (Code of Canon Law 1983 c.751). However, schismatics can validly ordain priests and consecrate valid catholic bishops providing there are no errors involved of necessary doctrine to the substance of the Sacrament of Orders. There is not any in the Brazilian Catholic Church. Furthermore, Roman Catholic Canon law has no authority or right to be levied as discipline towards any of our priests or faithful of the Brazilian Catholic Church. We are applicable to our own canon law in the same way that the Catholic Orthodox churches have their own canon law. Canon Law of 1983 is SUBMITTED for the Roman Catholic Church and its own clergy, NOT OTHER CATHOLIC & ORTHODOX CHURCHES. It would be like trying to apply Foreign Laws in the United Kingdom. It has no place.
