The Definition of Emeritus
The Definition of Emeritus
Adapted from here.

As you can all see, emeritus is not a new office, nor is it an office. It is an honorific to someone who once held an office.

So, my brothers and sisters, it does not prove in the slightest that anyone still holds that he office they are the Emeritus of.

This is why English is important, and why we should learn what words mean, lest we be led astray by lying, tax evading, schismatic frauds. ?


adjective - (of the former holder of an office, especially a college professor) having retired but allowed to retain their title as an honor.
"So let us be confident, let us not be unprepared, let us not be outflanked, let us be wise, vigilant, fighting against those who are trying to tear the faith out of our souls and morality out of our hearts, so that we may remain Catholics, remain united to the Blessed Virgin Mary, remain united to the Roman Catholic Church, remain faithful children of the Church."- Abp. Lefebvre
