The Apostolic Succession through the Old Catholic Church and PHILIPPINE INDEPENDENT CATHOLIC CHURCH

Establish By His Grace Archbishop Juan Baladad.

 

Apostolic Succession is the laying on of hands, one to another in an unbroken line of succession from the original Apostles down through history to today. This lineage is recognized as a mark of a true church, one recognized by both Eastern (Orthodox) and Western (Roman) Catholic Church, as well as others. Through these various lineages, The Lutheran Orthodox Church is in direct Apostolic Succession of St Peter. We also hold others as well.

 

DECLARATION; DOMINUS JESU, CONGREGATION FOR

THE DOCTRINE OF FAITH, THE VATICAN, AUGUST 6, 2000 #17:

 

Therefore, there exists a single Church of Christ, which subsists in the Catholic Church, governed by the Successor of Peter and by Bishops in communion with him. The [other] Churches which, while not existing in perfect communion with the Catholic Church, remain united to her by means of the closest bonds, that is, by Apostolic Succession and a valid Eucharist, are true particular Churches. Therefore, the Church of Christ is present and operative also in these Churches, even though they lack full communion with the Catholic Church…”

CANON 844.3, THE CANON LAW CODE OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH, (1983)

“Catholic ministers may lawfully administer the sacraments of penance, the Eucharist and anointing of the sick to members of the Eastern Churches [Orthodox] not in full communion with the Catholic Church, if they ask for them and are properly disposed. The same applies to members of other Churches which the Apostolic See judges to be in the same position as the aforesaid Eastern Churches so far as the sacraments are concerned.”

His Holiness Pope Pius XI On July 4, 1924, Pope Pius XI nominated Bishop Carlos Duarte Costa as Bishop of Botucatu, Brazil.

 

Carlos Duarte Costa was born in Rio de Janeiro on July 21, 1888 at the residence of his uncle (later Bishop) Eduardo Duarte da Silva. The son of Joao Matta Francisco Costa and Maria Carlota Duarte da Silva Costa, he received a devout Catholic upbringing. At age nine he received his first communion in the Cathedral of Uberaba, from the hands of his uncle (now Bishop) Dom Eduardo Duarte da Silva. That same year he was taken by his uncle to Rome to study at the Pontificio Collegio Pio Latino Americano, a Jesuit-run minor seminary. In 1905 he returned to Brazil for health reasons, and entered an Augustinian seminary in Uberaba, where he completed his Philosophical and Theological studies. [1]

After ordination as a deacon, Costa served under his uncle, Dom Eduardo, in the Cathedral Church of Uberaba. On May 4,1911Costa was ordained to the priesthood at the Cathedral. He then returned to Rome to further his education, and obtained a Doctorate in Theology from the Pontifical Gregorian University. After returning to Brazil, he worked once again with his uncle Dom Eduardo in Uberaba, as secretary of the diocese. Costa was awarded the title Monsignor for his publication of a catechism for children, and later was named Protonotary Apostolic and General Secretary of the Archdiocese of Rio de Janeiro, serving in this capacity until 1923. [1]

 

On July 4, 1924, Pope Pius XI nominated Costa as Bishop of Botucatu. His Episcopal consecration occurred on December 8 of that year, at the Metropolitan Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro, presided over by Sebastian Cardinal Leme da Silveira Cintra. Bishop Carlos Duarte Costa was the founding bishop of the National Catholic Church movement. Archbishop Carlos Duarte Costa consecrated on 08/15/1954 Bishop Emile Federico Fairfield Rodriguez y Durand Archbishop Rodriguez-Durand consecrated on 05/18/1975.
