A Refutation of “A Catechetical Refutation”
You may download here a paper I wrote called A Refutation of “A Catechetical Refutation”: Regarding a Defence Made of Bishop Williamson’s Comments on the Novus Ordo in response to a thesis in Mr. Sean Johnson’s paper called A Catechetical Refutation: Regarding Certain Objections Made to Bishop Williamson’s Comments on the Novus Ordo in which he defends Bishop Richard Williamson’s advice to a lady during a conference given in Mahopac, NY on June 28, 2015 regarding active attendance at the Novus Ordo Mass. I argue that Bishop Williamson’s advice to the lady transgressed the Declaration of Fidelity to the Positions of the Society of St. Pius X written by the saintly Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre in 1981 on this essential matter.
I beg His Excellency to retract his advice and return to the position of his spiritual father, who consecrated him a bishop to carry forward the promotion and defence of Catholic Tradition. This must needs include the wholesale rejection of the Novus Ordo Mass and its active attendance.
