BIOGRAPHY OF CARDINAL PRIMATE

His Eminence +++Boniface Grosvold, D.D

Cardinal Primate of the Old Roman Catholic Church (Latin Rite)

Most Rev. Dr. Boniface Grosvold was born on 4 June 1942 in Chester, Nova Scotia. As a young man he moved to Ontario where he was employed as a church musician and where he discovered Old Roman Catholicism.

On 28 October 1969 (Feast of SS Simeon & Jude) he was tonsured and admitted to the minor order of cleric by Archbishop Nelson Dudley Hillyer of the Ontario Old Roman Catholic Church. He at that time took the religious name of “Boniface” and has been known by that name since. During successive Sundays in January of 1970 Bro.

Boniface was admitted by +Hillyer to the minor orders of door keeper, reader, exorcist, and acolyte. On Easter Sunday (29 March) 1970, +Hillyer admitted Bro. Boniface to the sub-diaconate.

Feeling that his future was in another jurisdiction, Brother Boniface resigned in the summer of 1970 from the Ontario Old Roman Catholic Church and joined Holy Saviour Old Roman Catholic Parish of Niagara Falls, New York, and its bishop-elect Fr. William Mark Plested.

On 30 and 31 August 1970 respectively, Boniface was ordained a deacon and a priest by the retired Old Roman Catholic Archbishop of Toronto, the Most Rev’d Earl Anglin Lawrence James (1901 to 1978). On 28 September 1970 Fr.

Plested was consecrated bishop for the Old Roman Catholic community in Niagara Falls, NY by +James, and both he and the now Father Boniface based their work there.

On 19 January 1972 the work was legally organized by the incorporation in the Province of Ontario of the Old Roman Catholic Church, Diocese of Ontario, which took in also the American Parish of Holy Saviour, which then served as the Pro-Cathedral.

On 20 July 1974, Fr. Boniface was consecrated the auxiliary bishop for the Old Roman Catholic Church, Diocese of Ontario in Holy Saviour Old Roman Catholic Pro-Cathedral by the Old Roman Catholic Archbishop of New England, the Most Rev’d Edward Carleton Payne, assisted by Archbishop William Mark Plested of the ORCC Diocese of Ontario.

On 30 November 1974 Bishop Grosvold was enthroned as the second Bishop of the ORC Diocese of Niagarra Falls, New York, and Ontario, in succession to Archbishop Plested. On September 11th. – 12th., 1976, he was elected Metropolitan-Archbishop and Primate.

Since October of 1997, the See of the Diocese, also known as the “Old Roman Catholic Church In Canada”, has been in London, ON Canada.

On April 22, 2005, at Spring Convocation, Saint Jude’s Seminary, in conjunction with the Faculty of Theology, Archbishop Grosvold was granted the degree, Doctor of Sacred Theology (S.T.D.).

At the Fall Convocation of the Faculty of Theology, he was given the degree, Doctor of Sacred Literature (D.S. Lit.).

The Old Roman Catholic Church Latin Rite “We are like unto the Rock from which we are hewn.” A warm welcome from the Archbishop and Primate Most Rev. Boniface Grosvold D.D. One of the thoughts which constantly crosses my mind when thinking of the History of the Old Roman Catholic Church, is that penned by another writer which I have just quoted above; and indeed those who are truly Old Roman Catholics, tracing our History right back to the late 1600’s to 1711 and 1745, at which time the movement of the Ancient Catholic Archdiocese of Utrecht (Ultrajectensis) came into being as an autonomous jurisdiction of Roman Catholicism. At about the time of the first Vatican Council, another group of German and Swiss Catholics, led by the scholarly Father Johann Joseph Ignaz Von Dollinger, a German Theologian, led this group of disgruntled Catholics, due to the pronouncments of Vatican Council I, to the Archbishop of Utrecht (Ultrajectensis), where they received Consecration; and thus began the decline of the Ancient Archdiocese of Utrecht. Some years later on the Dutch, German and Swiss Old Catholics formed an intercommunion with the Protestant Church of England and her Sister Churches, including the Polish National Catholic Church. In April 1908, Father Arnold Harris Mathew of Blessed memory, an English Priest of the Roman Catholic Church, was consecrated as the first Old Roman Catholic Bishop for Great Britain, at Saint Gertrude’s Old Roman Catholic Cathedral, at the ancient See City of Utrecht (Ultrajectensis), the Netherlands, by the Most Reverend Gerardus Gul, Archbishop of Utrecht, accompanied by several other Bishops of the Old Catholic Churches of Germany and Switzerland, thus establishing the Old Roman Catholic Church in England, the centenary of which will be commemorated in 2008. It was on December 29th., 1910, Feast of Saint Thomas A Becket, Martyr to the cause of the Catholic Church in 1170, that Archbishop Arnold H. Mathew of Blessed memory, submitted a document, which is contained on this site, withdrawing from that Utrecht Union of Churches, the final act being the decision by the Utrecht Union of Churches, amongst other protestant innovations, to cease in the commemoration of the Pope from the appropriate position in the Canon of the Mass. The Old Roman Catholic Church, Latin Rite, together with a few other true and dilligent Old Roman Catholic jurisdictions, and here I mention the Archdiocese of Caer Glow, presided over by His Eminence, Archbishop John Humphreys D.D., have maintained the fulness of the Doctrines, Dogmas, and teachings, as well as the Mass as set forth by Pope Saint Pius V, 1570, in his Papal Bull, “Quo Primum”, to the Roman Catholic Church forever. As Primate of the Old Roman Catholic Church, Latin Rite, I welcome you as you enter this site, so dilligently prepared, that it may assist you to learn more about God, the Catholic Faith, and the History of the Old Roman Catholic Church. We are thankful for the kind and generous creation of this website; and we especially wish to thank Father Charles Brusca, Priest, Scholar, and Pastor of Our Lady of the Rosary Old Roman Catholic Church, Deerfield Beach, Florida. Father Bursca has kindly invited us to link to his very full and complete website; and so it is with this great joy in working in this portion of the Catholic Church, having served for thirty two years as Bishop, that I heartily endorse this site and I welcome you to come and browse and share the Catholic Faith, given to the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, as founded by her divine founder, Our Lord God and Saviour Jesus Christ, and conveyed to us by the Blessed Apostles, of whom we are true successors to this very day, Bishops and Priests of the Catholic Church.

“Our Brothers and Sisters Of Blessed Memory ”

We, the College of Bishops and Clergy of the Old Roman Catholic Church Latin Rite remember our dear Brother in Christ the The Most Reverend Dr. Norman Budgey, who passed away onApril 26, 2006,and his dear family.  Bishop Dr. Budgey served faithfully as the Bishop to the Civil Province of Nova Scotia.

We, the College of Bishops and Clergy of the Old Roman Catholic Church Latin Rite remember our dear Sister in Christ the Reverend Mother Ambrose, S.H.S. (Sisters of Holy Service), who was tragically killed in a road accident on the Feast of the Circumcision of Christ, (Jan. 1st. 2007).

Reverend Mother Ambrose, S.H.S. (Sisters of Holy Service), was a Naturopathic Doctor, and worked for about thirty years, engaged in rescuing and adopting animals of all kinds, but especially cats and dogs. She is sadly missed; and during the past fifteen or more years, worked directly under the jurisdiction of the Old Roman Catholic Church, Latin Rite, with Bishop Robert MacKenzie, who gave Mother the very best assistance and advice possible. She is sadly missed by us all; and we pray:

“Rest Eternal Grant Unto Her, O Lord, And May Perpetual Light Shine Upon Her;May Her Soul and the Souls of All the Faithful Departed, Rest In Peace. Amen.”

 In the Early Twentieth Century

A la luz de los acontecimientos de los siglos anteriores, vemos que la Vieja Iglesia Católica Romana, recibió y aún conserva, los siete sacramentos, doctrinas, ritos y enseñanzas morales de la Iglesia de Cristo y de los Apóstoles. La Iglesia está llamada “ vieja “, porque ella rechaza el modernismo y cada innovación reciente, mientras que se adhiere fielmente a la doctrina y la disciplina de la Iglesia de los tiempos apostólicos. Ella es llamada “ romana “, porque Su enseñanza es idéntica a la de la Santa Sede de Roma, en el ejercicio auténtico de su magisterio , porque la línea de la sucesión apostólica del primer siglo hasta 1739 se llevó a cabo en común con la Iglesia Católica Romana ; y porque Ella usa el Rito Romano ( en la forma prescrita por el Papa San Gregorio Magno , y codificado por el Papa San Pío V ) sin adición ni modificación , utilizando el tiempo de los textos de honor del Missale, Pontificale y Ritual Romanum con gran cuidado y exactitud como para servir, materia, la forma y la intención de la ofrenda del Santo Sacrificio de la Misa y en la administración de los Sacramentos. La Iglesia es ” católica “, porque ella no se limita a una sola nación o lugar o tiempo, la enseñanza de la misma fe una vez dada por su Divino Fundador , Jesucristo a los Apóstoles. El investigador honesto debe ser advertido de no confundir la Vieja Iglesia católica romana con otros grupos que se hacen llamar ” los Viejos Católicos “, o con los que usurpan el nombre “Vieja Católica Romana. ” El refuerzo de este tipo de confusión ha sido una táctica favorita de aquellos que esperan promover el cisma dentro de la resistencia católica tradicional a la modernidad. Mucho que, en esta época se hace llamar vieja católica, representa un compromiso con el protestantismo, o, en una digresión más amplia, con la teosofía culto no cristiano , teniendo poco que ver con el catolicismo. (En 1870, el Dr. Ignaz von Dollinger trajo los viejos católicos a existir para ofrecer resistencia al dogma de la infalibilidad papal. En 1873, la Iglesia de Utrecht fue, por desgracia debe , convencido a proporcionar estos viejos católicos con un obispo . En 1889, una fusión tuvo lugar entre Utrecht y los viejos católicos. Así, la Iglesia de Utrecht sentó las bases de su posterior caída en el Modernismo. ) La Vieja Iglesia Católica  Romana no tiene ninguna relación con estas “iglesias“. Antes de la gran sede de Utrecht abandonó su posición histórica, sin embargo, Dios, en su Providencia divina dispuso la continuación del viejo catolicismo romano. A pesar de Utrecht fue finalmente a abandonar el catolicismo tradicional, la Iglesia no era perecer. El 28 de abril de 1908, el Arzobispo Arnold Harris Mathew de Inglaterra fue consagrado al episcopado por el Arzobispo Gerard Gul de Utrecht, asistido por los Obispos NBP Spitt de Deventer, y JJ van Thiel de Haarlam en los Países Bajos, y el obispo J. Demmel de Bonn, Alemania. A finales de 1910, sin embargo, la influencia de los viejos católicos , resultó demasiado fuerte para el Utrecht y la había abrumado . Tan grande y de largo alcance fueron los cambios que fue llegar a realizar en sus formularios y posición doctrinal que , el 29 de diciembre de 1910, el Arzobispo Mathew se vio obligado a retirarse de la Iglesia católica romana antigua en Inglaterra de la comunión con Utrecht para preservar su ortodoxia intacto. Arzobispo Mathew citó varias innovaciones de los Viejos Católicos que le obligaba a retirarse de la unión con Utrecht: 1 ) un número indeterminado de Sacramentos. 2 ) El abandono de la confesión auricular . 3 ) Salida de la veneración de la Santísima Virgen y de los Santos . 4 ) La mutilación de los ritos sagrados y la disminución de la devoción a nuestro Señor en el Santísimo Sacramento . 5 ) La omisión de oraciones por el Papa en el Canon de la Misa 6 ) Pérdida de la devoción a la Misa diaria y la poca frecuencia de la Sagrada Comunión. 7 ) La iconoclasia . 8 ) La admisión de los no católicos a la Santa Comunión . 9 ) Abolición del ayuno y la abstinencia , y del ayuno eucarístico ( AH Mathew , Carta Pastoral del 29 de diciembre 1910). Tal vez el lector se dará cuenta de la similitud entre el catolicismo antiguo que Mathew rechazada y el catolicismo modernista que es tan ampliamente practicada hoy. Utrecht ya no es vieja católica, sino simplemente Católica Antigua. Así ocurre que la Iglesia antigua y gloriosa de San Willibrord y San Bonifacio tiene su continuación y perpetuación a través de la actual Iglesia Católica Antigua, que está obligado, en defensa de su ortodoxia, a negarse a celebrar la unión con cualquiera de Utrecht o el Antiguo católicos, o con sus homólogos modernistas.
