  1. His Holiness Daniel IV looks over the missive to the Church. He frowns and pens a response To whom it may concern at the Order of Equilibrium, It is most unfortunate that you do not recognize the Authority of God. It is by His Authority that all must operate. To reject His authority is to reject Him. You claim that you wish to not fight needlessly over a shared goal, but I beseech upon you our goals are very different. The Church of the Canon is an institution that has stood for hundreds of years as a way to obey His authority. While you are correct in that we have a goal of guiding Man towards peace, we have a goal of doing it through Him. So I pen this to the degeneracy that embodies this so-called collective. If you continue to fail to submit to His authority, then we shall continue to foresee animosity. To reject His authority is akin to Harren who rejected His authority thrice. "...the Lord’s Aengul Artifai descended before Harren, and spake with him. And the Aengul said “Harren, thou art chosen for the vocation of thy father. Come, and receive the Lord’s prophecy.” But Harren lifted his hand, and rejected the horn and laurel." -The Scroll of Gospel, Scattering 9 He rejected God's authority thrice, and as he pursued his sinful ways, the apostate tried to conquer His people, and he slew his brother and cut down many of his brothers lineage. Finally, the righteous Prophet Owyn spilt Harrens blood. So I shall make this brief, I shall send you the opportunity to submit to God's Authority thrice, and if upon the third time you reject His Authority, we will pick up the most Righteous Blade of Owyn. Seeing that you hath already claimed to reject his authority, you now have two more opportunities. Do not be like Harren who persisted in Sin even as he bathed in the Grotto of Gamesh. Signed, His Holiness DANIEL IV, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Metropolitan of the Crownlands, Archbishop of Enochas, Visigia and Erochland, Prince-Bishop of St. Thomas, Johannesburg, Esheveurd, Luciensport, Huss, and Dibley, Abbot of Laureh’lin, and Hariam, Bishop of Godfreo, Fernandus, and the Westerweald, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of God
  2. Pontifical Enthronement of Everard II, 1525 Pontifical Enthronement of 1598 The Afternoon was unusually warm. The Sun smiled down upon the Earth, casting its warm arms around it's inhabitants. The Birds flew from the Church Bell-tower as the three low 'dings' rung out. Only the Crows remained perched beside the bells, enduring the everlasting call of the Church. The City of Metz was quiet. It's inhabitants had closed their shops early and took flight from their domiciles to it's great Cathedral. The great hall of the Cathedral of Metz is bustling as the acolytes, priests and bishops began to make final arrangements for the enthronement. Canonist Lords fill the front rows of pews and the general masses flock to the Cathedral. Banners of Red, White and Yellow hang down from the sides of the hall. The Red Carpet stretches from the Cathedral doors to the footsteps of the Pontifical Throne. The Archbishop Rory of Karlsburg stands beside the Pontiff-Elect, he then begins to recite the Prayer of Penitence "Almighty and most merciful Creator, we have wandered and strayed from your ways like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. We have offended against your holy laws. We have left undone those things that we ought to have done; and we have done those things that we ought not to have done; and there is no health in us. But you, O Lord, have mercy upon us sinners. Spare those who confess their faults. Restore those who are penitent, according to your promises declared to mankind in Horen our Lord. And grant, O most merciful Creator, for his sake, that we may live a disciplined, righteous and godly life, to the glory of your holy name. So say we all." It is then when the Vice-Chancellor William of Metz was presented to the clergy, bearing an immaculate white frock. Archbishop Rory of Karlsburg continued; “With the Lord Creator our witness and guide, it has been divined that the Cardnial, William of Metz, born William Nicholas Frable, has been willed to fulfill the seat of the Church Pontificate. Do you heed the call of Our Creator to bear this vocation? “I do so believe.” “You have been ordained in our church, your household names forsaken and your life devoted in sole service to the teachings of our Creator. The vows of your past vocations remain firm; now you must make the declaration of assent.” Archbishop Rory of Karlsburg then reads the Assent, preserved from a different time. “The Church of Faithful is the One, Holy and Rightful Church of the Creator , worshiping the one true God, The Creator. It professes the faith uniquely revealed in the Holy Scrolls and set forth in the Faithful creeds, which faith the Church is called upon to proclaim afresh in each generation. Led by the Holy Light, it has borne witness to Faithful truth in its historic formulates, the Articles of Faith, The Book of Saints. In the declaration you are about to make, will you affirm your loyalty to this inheritance of faith as your inspiration and guidance under God in bringing the grace and truth of Horen to this generation and making Him known to those in your care?” “I, William Nicholas Frable, do so affirm, and accordingly declare my belief in the faith which is revealed in the Holy Scrolls and set forth in the Faithful creeds and to which the historic formularies of the Church of The Creator bear witness; and in public prayer and administration of the sacraments, I will use only the forms of service which are authorized or allowed by Canon.” replies William. Do you accept the Holy Scrolls as revealing all things necessary for eternal salvation through faith? "I do so accept them." "Will you be diligent in prayer, in reading Holy Scrolls, and in all studies that will deepen your faith and fit you to bear witness to the truth of the Word?" "By the help of God, I will." "Will you lead your people in proclaiming the glorious Word of Horen, so that the good news of salvation may be heard in every place?" "By the help of God, I will." "Will you teach the doctrine of Horen as the Church of Faith has received it, will you refute error, and will you hand on entire the faith that is entrusted to you?" "By the help of God, I will." "Will you be faithful in ordaining and commissioning ministers of the Church?" "By the help of God, I will." Will you be gentle and merciful for Horen’s sake to those who are in need, and speak for those who have no other to speak for them? "By the help of God, I will." "Will you endeavor to fashion your own life and that of your household according to the way of God and make your home a place of hospitality and welcome?" "By the help of God, I will." "Will you work with your fellow servants in the Church for the sake of the kingdom of God?" "By the help of God, I will." "Will you accept the discipline of this Church, exercising authority with justice, courtesy and love, and always holding before you the example of Horen?" "By the help of God, I will." "Will you then, in the strength of the Holy Light, continually stir up the gift of God that is in you, that the good news of God may be proclaimed in all the Realm?" "By the help of God, I will." "Speak thus then the oath of the Pontificate, with the conclave and God as witness." "I vow to change nothing of the received Tradition, and nothing thereof I have found before me guarded by my God-pleasing predecessors, to encroach upon, to alter, or to permit any innovation therein; To the contrary: with glowing affection as her truly faithful student and successor, to safeguard reverently the passed-on good, with my whole strength and utmost effort; To cleanse all that is in contradiction to the canonical order, should such appear; to guard the Holy Canons and Decrees of our Saints and Pontiffs as if they were the divine ordinance of Heaven, because I am conscious of Thee, whose place I take through the Grace of God, whose Vicarship I possess with Thy support, being subject to severest accounting before Thy Divine Tribunal over all that I shall confess; I swear to God Almighty and the Favored son Horen that I will keep whatever has been revealed through Horen and His Successors and whatever the Saints and my predecessors have defined and declared. I will keep without sacrifice to itself the discipline and the rite of the Church. I will put outside the Church whoever dares to go against this oath, may it be somebody else or I. If I should undertake to act in anything of contrary sense, or should permit that it will be executed, Thou willst not be merciful to me on the dreadful Day of Divine Justice. Accordingly, without exclusion, We subject to severest excommunication anyone -- be it Ourselves or be it another -- who would dare to undertake anything new in contradiction to this constituted Tradition and the purity of the Faith and the Faithful religion, or would seek to change anything by his opposing efforts, or would agree with those who undertake such a blasphemous venture." As his oath come to close, Rory washes the face of William and anoints his forehead with scented oils. "Cleansed of worldly taint, you are reborn in the Creator's vision. Your heart blessed in the eternal compassion and truth of Horen; your soul aflame with the benevolent justice and fervor of Owyn; your body awash with the incredulous miracles and charisma of Godfrey; your mind attuned to the unworldly wisdom and vigor of Siegmund." Rory then garbs William in the pontifical cloth, and bestows the pontifical ferula. "By this you are known to all as preserver of truths and lord spiritual." "I announce a great Blessing; we have a new Pontiff!" The Most Eminent and Most Reverend William Nicholas Frable, High Pontiff of the Canonist Faith who takes to himself the name DANIEL IV
  3. William of Metz rises from his chair, he looks to the synod "My Fellow Clergymen I shall keep my speech short as we all know my positions and what I am standing now to say. But let me begin by saying it is with a heavy heart that we mourn the passing of his Holiness Adrian I. He was a dear friend and a wise Priest. He understood that for the Church to continue in administering the Faith, we must become independent of nations. " "As his Vice Chancellor I carried out his vision. I stand before you as a Man who believes overwhelmingly in the traditions, theology and future of the Church. As High Pontiff I shall continue to seek Church sovereignty. To achieve a stronger Church we must remember our traditions, we must continue to pour our hearts into our dogma. Allow me to be honest my fellow Clergyman, the road that awaits us will be rocky. The obstacles before us are numerous, be it this ever-changing schism, maintaining our sovereignty and increasing our numbers. We shall continue on the path of revitalization and we shall see to it that each diocese by the end of my papacy is a place of stalwart faith. I tell you this, through an understanding of theology, a trust in God and an ever intensifying love for the Church, I shall see us through. " Dear Clergymen, I ask you to cast your vote for me. We shall continue on a path to sovereignty and strength. William of Metz writes his name down and gives it to the monk to be counted
  4. Eh. I mean, I guess. Just hope he doesn't Kronos the server... +1
  5. They ask us what's true, and here it is...
  6. Claritas Ecclesia Dei A Response to the Lotharic Heretics =+= The Church declares the Confessions of the Lotharic Communion to be heresy and a clear misinterpretation of scripture, as well as negligent of Church history. The Pontiff and his Holy Synod, along with the Ecclesiastical Estate as a whole, rebuffs these ‘Confessions’ and denies their legitimacy, both in scriptural backing and in theological reasoning. On Baptism: On the Iconostasis On the Sanctity of Matrimony On the Sanctity of Armaments On the Rite of Confession On the Rite of Priesthood On the Ashen Urns On the Pontifical Corruption On the matter of the High Pontiff On the Corruption of God’s Word On Innovation =+= We, the Church of the Canon have cut through the facade of this false faith. They demonstrate base knowledge of the Holy Scrolls yet hold the Scrolls high. They do not recognize the tradition of the Faith that has been passed down since the Prophet Owyn. They reject the Prophets of Godfrey and Siegemund by rejecting the station of the Pontiff. We, the Church of the Canon do see the Lotharic Communion as leading the Flock of Man away from God. We dub these Schismatics the Harrenites, as they hold Harren the kinslayer, elf-wedder, Father of Impure blood and Apostate as Faithful. In the end, the Lotharic Communion is comprised of vengeful men who seek to avenge a man who was rejected from the Pontificate for corruption, incompetence and sin. We beckon all Men to see through the facade of false faith and to rejoin the Church of the Canon. Dutifully, passionately signed: High Pontiff Adrian I High Pontiff Emeritus, Sixus IV Bp. William of Metz Ac. Ignatius the Holoferne
