Fr. Rafael, O.S.B., December 19, 2016 Letter to Family, Faithful, & Friends – Takes on Yellow Lighters
You may download here an English translation of the December 19, 2016 Letter to Family, Faithful, and Friends by Fr. Rafael, O.S.B., of the St. Joseph Monastery in Ecuador.
In this letter, Fr. Rafael takes on the yellow lighters, that is, those who say that they are resisting the neo-SSPX from within. The yellow lighters will scream and shout during the week on blogs and forums against the new direction of neo-SSPX, but then unite with their enemies in the greatest act of worship, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, on Sundays. What kind of resistance is that!
Just look where the yellow light position has taken us:
“It’s okay to go to the Masses of the neo-SSPX priests.”
“It’s okay to go to the Masses of the Sedevacantists.”
“It’s okay to go to the Masses of the ‘non una cum’ priests.”
“It’s okay to go to the Masses of the Feeneyites.”
“It’s okay to go to the Masses of the Novus Ordo priests!”
Oh, I forgot to mention a condition for the above: “….as long as they are not dogmatic about their positions.”
My friends, do you really think the yellow lighters will stop attending the neo-SSPX Masses after a canonical regularization is announced? If you really think so, I am sorry to tell you that you are deluded. You will be able to count on one hand the number who will stop attending. Their compromised position has softened them into whipped cream.
To remain strong, we must keep the red light position of the Archbishop!
