Earlier this morning, Matthew of CathInfo posted a thread on his forum in which he listed several accusations made by an unnamed source, but an alleged “completely reliable and trustworthy source”, against Fr. Rafael, O.S.B.  You may found the initial post of this thread here.  The link to the thread is the following:




Note how Matthew titled the thread “The truth about Fr. Raphael Arizaga OSB”.  Fr. Rafael is guilty in Matthew’s eyes simply based on this “completely reliable and trustworthy source”.


In order to give Fr. Rafael an opportunity to defend himself, I sent him an e-mail with the list of accusations and asked him to affirm or deny each accusation.  Fr. Rafael responded and gave me permission to publish his responses.  Fr. Rafael’s responses are in quotes and red font.


“Before God I assure that all is false except point # 9.  My Father got better.  It is a diabolical attack.  A proof we are in the truth.  Because they cannot refute with doctrine, with charity or with God’s weapons.”


I asked Fr. Rafael to clarify his response to point #10 because Father himself informed me last week that he was in Colombia.


“yes I am with my 2 monks in Colombia. There is not lady here and never was”


Let Fr. Rafael’s accuser come forth, show himself, and prove his accusations with evidence!

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!

Fr. Raphael Arizaga, O.S.B., Prior of the San Jose Monastery in Columbia wrote an article called “Friendship with the New-SSPX” that has been published in the April 2016 issue (see p. 17) of the Catholic Candle.  In this article, Fr. Raphael espouses the red light position.  Here is what he concludes:


“Uncompromising Catholics must consider this as a ‘red light’ to attending the Masses of all SSPX priests because they all cooperate with our Lord’s enemies at least by being members of the new-SSPX and also by softening their opposition to SSPX liberalism to the lower level tolerated by their SSPX superiors. Any SSPX priest who believes that he is speaking out strongly, loudly and continually against the liberalism of his SSPX superiors, is fooling himself.


“Any priest who fearlessly stands against SSPX liberalism can count on our help amplifying his voice by which he opposes his superiors’ liberalism. Then he will soon no longer be in the (so-called) internal resistance because he will see how fast the iron fist of Menzingen crushes and expels him as soon as he begins to really make a difference by standing fearlessly against his superiors’ liberalism.


“At that time, uncompromising Catholics will have a ‘green light’ to attend his Masses because then he also will be an uncompromising soldier of Christ the King.”


So true!  And how sad it is for those yellow lighters who fight only half-heartedly by the fact that they either continue to assist at Masses offered by such compromising priests or give the thumbs up to others to continue doing so.


The yellow light position has been a scourge in that it has helped debilitate the growth of the Resistance.  


May the yellow lighters open up their eyes soon and see “red”.
