Archbishop Thuc's arrival to the United States was predicted in a letter written to Pope John XXIII in 1961. Utica, NY. mystic Charles Grestl wrote the letter after receiving no reply from either the Vatican or Cardinal Spellman of New York City.
In 1947, Grestl had several visions of Christ carving angels out of wood and received a message to be given to the "Cardinal". The message from Christ said that "... the priests represent me on the altar and I am always waiting."
This message, couple with references "my foster father's house," "boys work," and the cities of Rochester and New York seem to indicate the arrival of Archbishop Thuc in Rochester, NY; his final trip to New York city, and the coming of a NEW Clergy to replace the clergy that have fallen away from the Catholic Faith.
We discussed these and the biblical and theological issues of Charles Grestl's letter in our book, The Man Who Saw Jesus. Thank you, Bishop L. Poccia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 14:27, 19 September, 2003 (UTC)
- A book with that title, The Man Who Saw Jesus, is not found in WorldCat and a search for "The Man Who Saw Jesus" Grestl yields ONE other site besides this Wikipedia talkpage and its copies. It is most certainly not a reliable WP:SOURCE. A search for "Charles Grestl" yields unremarkable apparition and pareidolia stories — nothing notable or reliable. This topic should just be archived and forgotten. –BoBoMisiu (talk) 15:42, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
Last Catholic Bishops in Vietnam??
What does mean the sentence: Thục was the principal consecrator of Bishops Michel Nguyên Khác Ngu (1909-2009) and Antoine Nguyên Van Thien (born 1906), the last Roman Catholic bishop in Vietnam.?? It is a nonsence. Probably, they were the last Bishops in V. consecrated in Tridentine Ritus but, as I hope, these pages are Wikipedia, not Tradypedia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 14:34, 9 October 2009 (UTC)
- This was the result of "Thục was the principal consecrator of Bishops Antoine Nguyên Van Thien (born 1906) and Michel Nguyên Khác Ngu (born 1909), who are currently the oldest still living Roman Catholic bishops in Vietnam." to "Thục was the principal consecrator of Bishops Antoine Nguyên Van Thien (1906-2009) and Michel Nguyên Khác Ngu (born 1909), the last Roman Catholic bishop in Vietnam." They were not the last Catholic bishops in Vietnam (see "Living Bishops of Vietnam" on catholic-hierarchy.org). —BoBoMisiu (talk) 16:48, 2 July 2014 (UTC) that changed the sentence from
Inasfar as the archbishop's brothers' names all began with Ngô, it is reasonable to infer that Ngô was the family-name, not Thuc. Indeed, it is the tradition in the east for the surname to come first. A better rendition of his full name would be with his Christian names first, since such names customarily precede the surname.
- You are right and I did edit about Vietnamese name. But did you note that his nephew, François-Xavier Cardinal Nguyên Van Thuán, are not bear the family name of Ngô. The reason is that Cardinal Thuan is the son of Thuc's sister, so Thuan bear the family name from his father, and not from family Ngô. —Dieu2005 14:28, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
communion with Rome
The Clemente Domínguez y Gómez article claims that Peter Martin Ngo-Dinh-Thuc was excommunicated for valid but unlawful ordinations, then accepted back into the church, and then excommunicated a second time. But this article makes no mention of reacceptance or a second excommunication. Which article is correct? — Gwalla | Talk 22:50, 3 Apr 2005 (UTC)
I gave a verifiable source to the corrections I made. Whether you agree/disagree about the factual accuracy of the source is a matter of opinion – one which the individual reader should be allowed to form of their own. I have no axe to grind – if you can disprove the source, I will remove without contestation.
The reference to des Lauriers however, is not sourced. If you cannot provide a verifiable source for this, it does not belong. —Donalcone 19:01, 13 September 2006 (UTC)
- To Smith2006 - the one committing vandalism here is you. You remove properly sourced material and/or substitute your opinion in its place. Please familarize yourselves with the rules of editing on this site before you continue to make bad ones. Thanks. —Donalcone 18:49, 19 September 2006 (UTC)
Role in Ngo regime
The long-term importance of Ngo Dinh Thuc to history, rather than the Church, may have its genesis in the 1926-1927 crossing of his path, in Rome, with the path of fellow-resident Francis Spellman. It was likely their long term acquaintance that swung open the door of Maryknoll for Ngo Dinh Diem in 1950 and kept it open almost three years. Either nobody knows, or nobody will tell, exactly what Diem did there all that time. Further, it is even more UN-likely that Diem stayed at Maryknoll without the express permission of Pius XII.
Regardless, what is not a matter of speculation is the legitimizing role played by Bishop Thuc in the arrogance, cupidity and cruelty of the Ngo Regime - symbolized for many by the 1963 reference of Mme. Nhu to "monk barbeques". Two interesting witnesses are Edward Lansdale - see "In the Midst of Wars" - and Thich Nhat Hanh -see "Lotus in a Sea of Fire". —Trylon 23:06, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
- "Thuc's brother, Ngô Ðình Khôi, was buried alive because of his refusal to become a minister in the first communist government. Thuc's three other brothers, Ngô Đình Diệm, president of South Vietnam, Ngô Đình Nhu and Ngô Đình Can, his close collaborators, were all assassinated. President Diệm was assassinated on November 1, 1963."
- The above paragraph gives the reader the impression that Ngô Đình Diệm, Ngô Đình Nhu and Ngô Đình Can were killed by the communists. These three Ngô brothers were killed during or as result of a coup by their own military forces. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Quietaustralian (talk • contribs) 13:50, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
Did Thuc use the pre-concilar or the post-concilar rubrics when he concecrated the bishops? Becuase it appears that Thuc had no religious objections to the Novus Ordo, he only chose sedevacantism because of the crisis within the Church. If he did used the post-conciliar rubrics, then the whole Thuc line could be in-vaild (by a Traditionalist perspective). —188.8.131.52 22:19, 27 May 2007 (UTC)
Claims of "Mgr. Barthe"
These claims may not be posted inside the article in large CAPS constantly, as there is no source provided, and the opinion of Barthe is contrary to that of the official Vatican position. Also, there is no reason to believe that a man who could write Latin and preach sermons all over the world, was unable to confer a sacrament validly due to ALLEGED "mental illness". If Archbishop Thuc could validly celebrate Mass, and he could and observed the rites totally, he could also validly ordain and consecrate, as nothing more special is required. Those claiming otherwise, do not understand Roman Catholic sacramentology and theology. They seem to deny the validity of the Episcopal Consecrations by Mons. Thuc, just because they deem them to be imprudent, undesirable, illicit or criminal. That may be true all, but invalidity is something else that licitity or illicitity. Thuc clearly made imprudent decisions, e.g. at Palmar de Troya, but archbishop Thuc was not insane and unable to say Mass validly. Imprudent popes and bishops conferred sacraments validly. Licitity is something else than validity. —Smith2006 (talk) 09:43, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
A search of Google Books and Scholar seem to show that Pierre Martin Ngo Dinh Thuc is more common than Pierre Martin Ngô Đình Thục (BOOKS 23 on -Pierre-Martin-Ngô-Đình-Thục Pierre-Martin-Ngo-Dinh-Thuc Pierre-Martin-Ngô-Đình-Thục -Pierre-Martin-Ngo-Dinh-Thuc - did not match any documents. SCHOLAR 147 for -Pierre-Martin-Ngô-Đình-Thục Pierre-Martin-Ngo-Dinh-Thuc, 79 for Pierre-Martin-Ngô-Đình-Thục -Pierre-Martin-Ngo-Dinh-Thuc). On that evidence unless someone can show that it is faulty the article Pierre Martin Ngô Đình Thục should be moved to Pierre Martin Ngo Dinh Thuc following the WP:NC policy and the WP:UE guideline. —Philip Baird Shearer (talk) 09:25, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
- "Ngo Dinh Thuc" gets 2,030 results on Google Books. "Pierre Martin Ngo Dinh Thuc" gets 281. Vietnamese Catholics all have Christian names, but it is quite unusual to see the Christian and Vietnamese names stuck together like this. —Kauffner (talk) 12:39, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

J'ai été sacré avec Mgr Boni Luigi le 18 Avril 1982 à Loano Italie, et je proclame que Mgr n'était pas Sedévangantiste, et je n'ai pas voulu consacré des Gilles P et Antoine C, avant pour eux j'étais un bon évêque et devant mon refus...

I am no longer bishop. God is the judge. Scolaire (talk) 21:03, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Je suis surpris de voir votre mauvaise foi... Mais si vous voulez détruire Notre superieur, libre à vous... Mais attention demain, la vie est une roue qui tourne... Oui nous sommes plusieurs témoins au sacre tant de Mgr Roux que de Mgr Boni... A Loano en 1982, vous vous n'y étiez pas... Mais peut-être êtes vous un de ceux que Notre superieur à mis à la porte pour moeurs ou autres... Je prie pour vous.
Translation: I am surprised to see your bad faith. But if you wish to destroy our superior, it's up to you. But beware tomorrow: life is a wheel that turns. Yes we are several witnesses at the sacrament such as Mgr Roux and Mgr Boni. At Loano in 1982, you were not there. But perhaps you are one of those whom our superior showed the door for some customs or other. I pray for you. Brother Mathieu O.MR. Scolaire (talk) 21:03, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

J'étais à Loano le 18 avril 1982... Je puis le jurer.. Mgr Boni et Mgr Roux ont été sacré par Mgr Thục... Par ailleurs il y avait d'autres témoins, je ne souviens de Mr P Riu, Mr W Ardisson, Md A Faugére et d'autre, puis le livre de présence de la pension Millone ou est descendu Mgr Thục peut l'attester...

Translation: I was at Loano on 18 April 1982. I can swear it. Mgr Boni and Mgr Roux were consecrated by Mgr Thục. In addition there were other witnesses, I remember Mr. P. Riu, Mr. W. Ardisson, Mme. A. Faugère and others, then the register of the Millone pension where Mgr Thục went down can attest. See also the police headquarters of Savona. What lies! Me, I sign my name because I am not a liar. Scolaire (talk) 21:03, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Vous pouvez vérifier mes dires, mais le 18 avril 1982, j'étais bien présente à Loano, je puis vous dire que Mgr Thục est venu à Loano, pour fuire l'Abbé Barbara, il est arrivé à Nice le Mardi après Paques et non en mai... Il est allé voir l'Abbé Delmasure à Cannes, puis un docteur à Antibes dont je ne me souviens pas du nom, puis Mr Ardisson l'a conduit à Loano et non à Toulon, car Mr l'Abbé Barbara voulait être sacré par Mgr Thục... J'ai vecu tous cela, j'étais au service de Mgr Boni.... Qui lui aussi était sur l'annu Pontifical... Et excommunier par Rome comme Mgr Roux... Je puis le jurer sur la Bible.
J'ai connu Mgr Roux en 1970 durant son service militaire..., j'ai été son père spirituel, j'ai été présent pour son ordination en 1977, et attristé de son sacre fait par Mgr Thục à Loano en 1982, j'ai été chargé par Don Marie Bernard de Terris, de récupérer Gérard (Mgr Roux, j'ai quitté mon abbaye avec la permission de mon Abbé Dom René, j'ai fait avec le Père Daumas et Mgr Abelé en 1985, toutes les démarches pour que Mgr Roux soit relevés de son excommunication, de début février 1985 au 20 décembre 1985, j'étais avec lui, soit à Ganagobie, soit à Digne ou à Antibes... Puis il a voulu retourner vers la tradition... Mais je puis attester qu'il a été ordonné au titre d'une congrégation catholique et non vacant (Fraternité de la Charité) à Nice et qu'il a été sacré pour Mgr P.M. Ngo-Dinh-Thục, chose qui m'a fait beaucoup de peine. Je ne sais pas commen,t il a pu etre ordonné par laborie ou autre, lorsqu'il était avec moi... Et je n'aurais rien vu ni su????
Je m'appelle Philipe RIU, je suis né en 1955 à Nice chemin de La Bornala. J'ai très très bien connu Mgr Roux, que vous traînez dans la boue, comme des pauvre type qui non pas le courage de dire et de signer leur nom. L'histoire du Docteur Heller est une belle blague, Ce « Brave Docteur » a forcer Mgr Thục que j'ai bien connu chez Mr l'Abbé Delmasure ou dans son petit deux pièces de Toulon... L'avez-vous connu à cette époque? J'en doute... Beau menteur , Beau parleur... Il n'avait pour lui venir en aide qu'une famille Norant qui d'ailleurs recevait à l'époque de Mgr Boni et Mgr Roux le montant du loyer... le saviez-vous? J'ai été très prêt de Mgr Roux du Padre, tant à Nice ou avec l'Abbé Délisade il a fait un bon boulot.. Puis à Antibes, sa maison été toujours ouverte, comme encore aujourd'hui. Mais qu'elle est la blague d'Heller.... Il a voulu faire sacré par Mgr Roux, et plusieurs personnes de Munich pourront vous le dire Marnodé Mgr n'a pas voulu, grand bien lui a pris, puisque ce « monsieur était pédophileé... Mais il fallait d'Heller trouve une solution.
Je ne puis que remercier mon cher Père Aereld, Phil et Louise, mais je puis dire aussi: Mgr Jean-Gérard Roux Pourquoi ne pas croire, je vous conseille de relire: à la suite de Saint Paul: "nous travaillons avec beaucoup de peines de nos propres mains; on nous maudit, et nous bénissons; on nous persécute, et nous le souffrons; on nous dit des injures, et nous répondons par des prières; nous sommes regardés comme l'ordure du monde, rejetés de tous." Et Mgr Roux dit toujours en plus: "Mais HEUREUX car cela est à cause de mon Amour pour Dieu et pour sa plus grande gloire ainsi que de mon Amour pour l'Eglise, ma Mère." Les ingrats et médisants qui oubliant l'aide que nous leur avons apportée nous démontrent que nous sommes dans le vrai. Ceux qui proclament que je n'ai pas été sacré par Feu Mgr Thục je leur dis un grand merci, ils m'aident dans mon élévation vers Dieu, par le chemin de la patience, du pardon et de l'amour. Je prie pour eux, car sans le savoir( j'espère), il font l'œuvre du Diable Pax Tecum. +Jean-Gérard Roux Epis;Missi.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 11:29, 12 October, 2006 (UTC)
Je ne puis laisser dire des mensonges, même si je ne suis pas d'accord avec la position de l'Evêque Roux, il a vraiment été consacré par Mgr Thục le 18 avril 1982 à Loano en Italie, j'ai demandé en 1985 la relève de son excommunication... Je sais pourquoi Chadwick a écris contre lui... Son dossier est à la disposition de tous auprès du Christ-Roi...
Me then to let tell some lies, even though I don't agree with the position of the bishop Roux, he/it has been dedicated indeed by Mgr Thục April 18, 1982 in Loano in Italy, I asked in 1985 the relief of his/her/its excommunication... I know why Chadwick has write against him His/her/its file is at the disposal of all by the Christ-King... + Ed Abele, epis.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 10:20, 20 January, 2007 (UTC)
Sujet de Chadwick, qui diffame Mgr Roux... Heureusement que Mgr Roux ne la pas consacré, il s'est marié en France a eu 2 enfants, puis est parti de France avec les 2 enfants... Il est recherche activement par la police.... Lorsque Mgr Roux est toujours dans sa communauté depuis 30 ans.... A vous de juger....— Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 11:49, 10 June, 2007 (UTC)
The above French language discussion, in this section, was WP:REFACTORed from a fragmented discussion on this talk page. It is about purported consecrations of Jean-Gérard Roux and Luigi Boni, on 18 April 1982, in Loano, Italy, by Thục. The posts read like rambling Internet forum posts. A search for "Jean Gérard Roux" Thuc, Roux Thuc and "Luigi Boni" Thuc yields several interesting results including Roux's 2005 incarceration for forgery and fraud.. Articles by Anthony Chadwick, on two personal websites, describe the case and conclude that there is no reliable evidence that these consecrations attributed to Thục actually took place. As both are personal websites, they do not meet WP:BLPSPS guidelines. These claims should be debunked in a footnote in the article, or maybe in the episcopi vagantes article, using WP:RELIABLE sources (most likely French language sources). Previously, and repeatedly removed.
- From what I can see it is not a discussion as such, but a single user, taking a variety of names including Fr. Aereld, Jean Gerard Roux and Louise Littieri, disputing the section on Roux in the version that you linked to above. There was a lot of edit-warring on that section at that time, with a dynamic IP being repeatedly reverted after adding similar diatribes into the article. Scolaire (talk) 21:29, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
