LOL this is a pathetic answer.
Given the heavy Latinization of the Maronites, we know where that unity comes from.
I don't think the church sees sedevacantists as a problem in need of fixing, honestly. It's a small group of people. It comes down to that, all the while we are told by those loyal to their supreme pontiff, that the papacy isn't the totality of their church. What else do you have in common?
The Roman Church seems content to continue liberalizing (whatever that means), so I think it's content to leave Traditionalists behind. BUT, I think the Church does see itself as a "big tent" where traditionalists and charismatics can co-exist so long as each says they're loyal to the Pope. The communion, then, is based on fealty to the Pope and not shared liturgy or faith. I think that's the way it's heading but others will surely disagree with that assessment.
This is a good answer, but I wonder how true it is... Is it the case that those in the FSSP believe the same as those dancing bishops in Rio? Does my priest who quoted Hindu texts last Sunday during his homily believe the same as Pius XII who said the Apostolic See never allowed its children to partake in non-Catholic assemblies? How about the neo-catechumenal way and the Popes of the Assisi meetings: would any Pope have agreed with this before? Does this not evidence a huge difference in the Faith? And sure, one could argue that the Faith is still the same but pastorally changed... I respond that if one believes now what the church taught for the past 500 years, that makes one canonically irregular at best (see the SSPX).
Anyway, that's off topic so I'll cease...
Faith is shared by All Churches of the Catholic Church. At local level there will always be those who dissent from the faith, those who teach heresy, those who disregard doctrine for whatever reason or don't believe doctrine A or B, those who disrespect the liturgy by having Mass filled with abuses and absurd behavior. All in all such deviations by certain people and groups at local level exist in EVERY RELIGION and DENOMINATION even Orthodoxy. There are those who claim to be Orthodox but believe in Immaculate conception for an example. Those that doubt the real presence, or deny the truth of the sacrament of confession etc. Does this now mean Eastern Orthodoxy is not united in faith? I think you see the point being made. Such things will always exist as Satan works hard to break down Gods Church.
However lets not exaggerate the situation and make it seem as if the acts of the minority are the general happenings in the Catholic Church. Its not like there are clown masses in every second church now... These things are the actions of a few.
Unity of faith is reality. I can attest to this from personal experience where at the local Maronite church, we (Roman and Maronite) commune together and believe and teach the same doctrines. We are all catholic and share the one faith of the Catholic Church. We are brethren of the same flock
It's a rather pathetic case.
I've been to Maronite churches in the Middle East-let alone the West-that struck me as little different from Italian churches (where I have also been).
There is always an excuse for you.
I don't deal in excuses, only reasons. That the Vatican has a need for the former because it cannot justify itself by the latter isn't my problem.
By this standard a lot of orthodoxy is in false unity of faith given the major byzantinization of eastern orthodoxy (e.g, Antiochans).
Cavardossi answered this for the most part (though there was some measure towards the end of involuntary actions among the Antiochians: but then they had set up the rites of Constantinople in the first place).
The Antiochians do not have to commemorate another Patriarch other than there own in each and every DL, for instance, unlike the Maronites. Nor can a sole bishop appeal over the Patriarch and the Holy Synod to another patriarch-as one did when the issue of married clergy abroad came up among the Maronites.
The Antichochian Orthodox shared the same Faith as Constantinople long before the former adopted the rites of the latter. The Maronites integration into the Vatican's communion went in tandem with its Latinization.
Secondly the unity of faith for most Catholics is felt. I'm sorry about your experience but again lets not make the minority the general happenings as we know that's not the case. FYI the Catholic Church isn't only in America
Yes, we are everywhere: I myself have been in all the ancient Pentarchy and 11 out of the 15 Autocephalous churches.
As for the Vatican, FYI I've been there, and its churches on three continents (four, if Europe counts as separate). You want to talk about your Dutch correligionists?
The truth will remain the truth.
Sure will-we celebrate that every Sunday of the Triumph of Orthodoxy.
Faith us what unites us as Catholics.
Sure does. We do not need to commemorate a supreme pontiff at every Divine Liturgy, from whom our bishops must have their "faculties" renewed, for that.
You can argue until your face us blue but that's the truth no matter how much you hate it.
I only hate falsehood.
