I would like to endorse the attached call for a holy hour (or at least a Rosary) for the intention stated.
Father Pfeiffer explains why in this conference:
He also explains that many priests in France will be going public on Sunday with their displeasure with the leadership of the SSPX. Included with these priests is a canon lawyer who wrote a book containing many writings of Archbishop Lefebvre – a book which is now banned by Bishop Fellay. However, the French Superior refuses to ban the book and may be close to joining the Resistance. If so, many French priests would join him. This is still a maybe – hence the request for prayers on Thursday.

A happy and holy New Year 2014 to all! May the Child King, His blessed Mother and Saint Joseph keep us faithful despite the difficulties, temptations and discouragements.
First of all, some news concerning last June’s Letter to the Four Bishops which you signed. Two of the four kindly replied:
– Bishop Williamson sent a kind message thanking us for the initiative and the magnificent spiritual bouquet.
– Followed by an encouraging letter from Bishop Tissier de Mallerais thanking all for the “precious” prayers and the letter which he tells us was “favourably read and heard, and to a large extent acceded to in our common declaration [of 27th June 2013] “.
Each of us might judge, in the light of events since then, if indeed our letter was “favourably read, heard” or “to a large extent acceded to” by the General Superior…
A new direction now seems to be definitively imposed upon the members of the SSPX by Menzingen and all contestation is severely reprimanded. Yet this new direction is eminently contestable and it should be easy to understand the necessity to combat it. We therefore should like to relay the initiative (cf : http://cristiadatradicinalista.blogspot.fr/ ) which follows calling for prayers for the numerous courageous priests and the few superiors who have chosen to fight, each in his own way, that they may filled with the gift of Fortitude to resist the coercions and punishments they have been imposed or which may await them.
In Christo Rege.
Continuous Holy Hour
Thursday, 16th January 2014, feast of Saint Marcel 1st , pope and patron saint of Archbishop Lefebvre, all day from 0:00am to 11:59 pm.
For the intention of the Father de Cacqueray, District Superior of France,
and of all the priests who want to remain faithful
that they may fully accept the demands of the combat for the Truth
“Father de Cacqueray needs our help” according to Father Rioult who states that “he is one of the few major superiors who measures the exceptional gravity of the situation of the Society”. The faithful priests too need our help to fully accept, whatever the cost, all that the combat for Truth requires of them. What better help could we offer than our fervent and generous prayer?
We therefore invite you to partricipate in a continuous holy hour this Thursday 16th January feast of Saint Marcel 1st , Pope and patron saint of Archbishop Lefebvre, all day from 0.00am to 23:59pm. Might Saint Marcel and the founder of the SSPX intercede to obtain from the Holy Ghost that Fr de Cacqueray be filled with the gift of Fortitude and have, according to the expectations of the faithful and clairvoyant clergy, a strong and beneficial reaction in these troubled times . And might the Holy Ghost fill with the same Fortitude those priests who want to remain faithful.
Those who wish to participate in this holy hour organized by French faithful may do so by offering an hour, half an hour , even just a quarter of an hour. Remember that night prayer is especially pleasing to God ! Wherever possible, likeminded faithful might try to organise the hours in such a way as to fill the night.
In prayerful union
