Participants in discussions on some Resistance boards continue to maintain that the SSPX Chapels/Masses should be given a yellow light and that we should not stay away until we see erroneous doctrine being taught. They are missing a few points:

They are focussing on what is being taught – no current teaching error, therefore no problem. With this line of thought, the logical conclusion is that it is then permissible/required to go to Indult Masses, as they too do not currently teach error and do promote the Tridentine Mass. If this is sufficient, then there is no state of emergency, so there is no reason for the SSPX to exist. There are plenty of groups available within the structure of the Modern Church to meet this preference.

A further point that we can make is that the individual SSPX/Indult/NO priest, who may be personally solid, by staying within the organization represents the policies/principles of the organization. So, although the SSPX priest may be against the organizational policies/procedures, he still represents acceptability of 95% of Vatican II, acceptance of the new Code of Canon Law, NOM’s being legitimately promulgated (and therefore legitimate), etc.

The modern SSPX no longer passes on the fullness of the Teaching of the Catholic Church, partly by omission and partly by distorting the teachings of their founder. The fullness of the Truth is no longer sought, but a practical agreement becomes the target.

Lessons learned through observance of the many other Indult groups are ignored. Modernist Rome is considered trustworthy enough to be obeyed without criticizing their errors.

These participants, however,  are not focussing on what is not being taught – omission of teaching about what doctrinal and pastoral errors are present in the Modernist Church. Thus, by not warning their flock of these errors, the SSPX is in fact condoning these errors. The average adherent then thinks that everything in the Church must be acceptable, otherwise Father would be warning him. The SSPX thus becomes guilty of sins of omission by condoning these errors; the adherents are at risk for what they are not being taught.

The decision to continue to attend the Masses/Sacraments is defended as claiming that they are still valid and are the normal means of Grace, therefore it is sinful to stay away from them. What is not considered is that God is not limited to normal means. If our Faith is at risk due to the factors noted above, then it is imprudent and sinful to accept these normal means from the compromised SSPX. We might as well go to the NOM, if it is legitimately promulgated and thus is itself the normal means.

We conclude then that this line of thinking is flawed and that one cannot continue to consider the SSPX Masses/Sacraments of being worthy of a yellow light, but must be considered as worthy of a red light.

This sermon by Father Pfeiffer is a must listen for:

SSPX priests “fighting from within”

Resistance members indecisively falling by the wayside

Single girls afraid to get married and have babies

Single men afraid to commit to a marriage

People who just want to get along with the world

In other words, most of us can benefit from this sermon.

 

Sept. 13, 2014, New Hampshire, what to do when we don’t know

 | Posted by | Categories: Uncategorized |

“On the morning of Tuesday 23 September from 11 am to 1 pm, a cordial meeting took place at the premises of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, between Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Muller, prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and Bishop Bernard Fellay, superior general of the Society of St. Pius X. The meeting was also attended by Archbishops Luis Francisco Ladaria Ferrer, S.I., secretary of the same Congregation, Joseph Augustine Di Noia, O.P., adjunct secretary and Guido Pozzo, secretary of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, along with two assistants from the Society of St. Pius X, Rev. Niklaus Pfluger and Rev. Alain-Marc Nély.

 

“During the meeting, various problems of a doctrinal and canonical nature were examined, and it was decided to proceed gradually and over a reasonable period of time in order to overcome difficulties and with a view to the envisioned full reconciliation.”

Your cross

15 September 2014

A parishioner passed on this meditation from the back cover of “Read Me or Rue It… How to Avoid Purgatory” by Father Paul O’Sullivan O.P.

  
The everlasting God has in His wisdom foreseen from eternity the cross that He now presents to you as a gift from His inmost Heart. This cross He now sends you He has considered with His all-knowing eyes, understood with His Divine mind, tested with His wise justice, warmed with loving arms and weighted with Hi own hands to see that it be not one inch too large for you and not one ounce too heavy for you. He has blessed it with His holy Name, anointed it with His grace, perfumed it with His consolation, taken one last glance at you and your courage, and then sent is to you from Heaven, a special greeting from God to you, an alms of the all-merciful love of God.
 
St Francis de Sales

Fr. Gregory Hesse

 

Fr. Gregory Hesse (+2006), Doctor of Sacred Theology and Canon Law, gave this conference in Louisiana when he visited Fr. Paul Trinchard in 1997.  Fr. Hesse exposes here some of the errors of the Second Vatican Council.  Father condemns the Council, as a whole, as being unacceptable to a Catholic.  Compare this to Bishop Fellay’s position that he would hope the Council belongs to Catholic Tradition.  This difference in position regarding the Council’s place in Catholic Tradition is a key factor in separating the SSPX of Archbishop Lefebvre, which continues in the Resistance, and the neo-SSPX of Bishop Fellay, which is not different in substance to the Ecclesia Dei communities.

 

My friends, make no mistake about it; the Church will one day condemn the Second Vatican Council and the post-Conciliar reforms, especially the Novus Ordo Missae.  When that day happens, you will hear me singing the “Te Deum”!
