Bishop Williamson’s Former Public Position on the New Mass
The owner of the website Milita Jesu Christi found a gem on Bishop Williamson’s former public position on the New Mass. You may listen to the audio recording below. I do not know the date and place of this recording.
In this recording, Bishop Williamson says that the New Mass is “illicit in any case”, that it is “intrinsically evil”, and that “one may not attend a valid, illicit Mass anymore than a Satanic Mass”. Wow! What a difference this is from what the same Bishop Williamson said to the lady in the Mahopac, NY conference given on June 28, 2015, where he basically told her that it was okay to continue attending the New Mass so long as her faith was nourished by it. The words His Excellency uttered in this conference (and his later Eleison Comments) have caused strife within the Resistance between priests and faithful alike. Yet, His Excellency has not backed down from what he said at that conference.
What a shame it is that an old wound has been opened up by His Excellency on a matter that had already been settled by Archbishop Lefebvre, which is that the New Mass is bad in itself and hence it may not be attended despite the reverence with which a priest celebrates it. Therefore, the faithful followers of the Archbishop must resist Bishop Williamson or any other Resistance bishop, priest, or faithful who defend his words.
