Br. Francis of New York State Receives the Cord of St. Francis of Assisi

Earlier today, young Br. Francis was invested by Fr. David Hewko with the cord of St. Francis of Assisi to become the first invested member in New York State of the Archconfraternity of the Cord of St. Francis under the direction of the SSPX-Marian Corps.  Deo gratias!  Br. Francis took this name in honour of the Seraphic Father himself.  Below is a video of the ceremony.

 


You shall know them by their scandals

Remember thou keep holy the Lord’s day.
Third Commandment

 

Our Lady relayed the anger of Her Son at La Salette: “I gave you six days to work, I kept the seventh for Myself, and no one wishes to grant it to Me. This is what weighs down the arm of my Son so much.” Working on a Sunday, for private profit, is against the Third Commandment. Causing others to do servile work, for private profit, on a Sunday, is against the Third Commandment.
 
It is repugnant. It is imprudent. It is sinful. What? It is the fact that a priest gave a presentation at a retail establishment, on a Sunday. The presentation was done during regular retail hours. The person is the Society of St. Pius X’s District Superior of Canada, Father Daniel Couture.
 
On Sunday, March 22, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. (regular hours include Sundays: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.), Winnipeg, Grant Park, in the Atrium, at the “iconic McNally Robinson Booksellers”, there was A presentation from Rev. Fr. Daniel Couture, SSPX. The store advertisement stated:
 
Fr. Daniel Couture will deliver a talk about Archbishop Lefebvre, “the exemplary, leading, inspiring and formidable figure in the Church” and “one of the most fascinating characters of the 20th century”. He will present a glimpse into the many roles that this great prelate exercised in the Catholic Church, such as Archbishop of Dakar, Apostolic Delegate to French Africa, Assistant to the Papal Throne, Superior General of the Holy Ghost Fathers and founder of the Society of St. Pius X, and his crucial role to defend and preserve the Tradition, Doctrine and Faith of the Catholic Church.

 

The SSPX Canada website referenced the event:
 
On Sunday afternoon, Fr. Couture gave a presentation on the book Marcel Lefebvre: The Biography, written by Bishop Tissier de Mallerais at the iconic McNally Robinson Booksellers.

 

In the midst of shoppers purchasing The Hermetic Code, where “ . . . writers Carolin Vesley and Buzz Curie chronicle local scholar Frank Albo’s search to uncover the Masonic ambitions of the building’s architect, Frank Worthington Simon. Concealed in the building’s architecture is a spine-tingling trail of occult clues . . .” or, perhaps, for their reading pleasure they were Sunday shopping for a copy of Polyamorous Love Song, a piece of fiction that treats the reader to stories about “. . . a group of “New Filmmakers” that devises increasingly unexpected sexual scenarios with complete strangers, to a secret society that concocts a virus that only infects those on the political right . . .”.
 

Regardless of their particular reading penchant, shoppers found a Catholic priest speaking, but not against Sunday shopping. Nope, he was there promoting a good book on a bad choice of days, a Sunday. What an example this must have been for the shoppers and the poor workers, too!
 
The neo-SSPX is increasingly compromising the First and Second Commandments by doing the Argentine Tango with the Conciliar Church and, now, the Third has been thrown to the wind by a district superior. Three down, seven more to go . . .
 
Caution: your agenda seems to be showing!
 
For, no matter how great may be men’s cleverness in concealing and their experience in lying, it is impossible to prevent the effects of any cause from showing, in some way, the intrinsic nature of the cause whence they come.[1]

God help us!

Sr. Mariana Receives the Cord of St. Francis of Assisi

On Thursday May 14, 2015 (Ascension Day), Sr. Mariana was invested by Fr. David Hewko with the cord of St. Francis of Assisi to become the first invested member in Ontario of the Archconfraternity of the Cord of St. Francis under the direction of the SSPX-Marian Corps.  Deo gratias!  Sr. Mariana took this name in honour of Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres, the Conceptionist nun who received apparitions of Our Lady of Good Success in Quito, Ecuador during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.  Our Lady of Good Success prophesied about the evils of our times.

WORLD-WIDE (SSPX-MC) RESISTANCE ROSARY CRUSADE

“Fight, Children of the Light, you, the few who can see!” (Our Lady of La Salette)

 

WHO? All who hold the True Faith, the Faith as Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre received it and handed down to us, without compromise…

 

WHAT? A Rosary Crusade of the Resistance to unite the intentions of all the resistance rosaries being prayed around the world, uniting our minds and hearts, begging Our Lady to help us in this, our hour of need…praying ‘as one’ for:

 

1. The Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, as requested by Our Lady at Fatima

 

2. The conversion of sinners and in reparation for our sins
3. God’s mercy and Our Lady’s protection on us all

 

…encircling the globe, linking our hearts and minds to form a world-wide, ‘living’ Rosary de la Resistance…surely Our Blessed Mother would hear our cry….

 

WHY? Because this is the request of Our Lady of Fatima. Just as she asked the children of Fatima to pray many rosaries and make many sacrifices in reparation for sin, so she makes the same request of us now…

 

WHEN? May 13th, 2015 – October 13th, 2015
2015 is the 98th anniversary of the Apparitions at Fatima. If we heed the words of Jesus to Sr. Lucy at Tuy on June 13, 1929, we realize that time is running out…

 

WHERE? Wherever we find ourselves in this world, in whatever walk of life, in whatever circumstance…let us pick up our rosaries and pray, pray, pray!

“For in every nation which shall hear thy name, the God of Israel shall be magnified on occasion of thee.” (Judith 13:31)

Father Pfeiffer is sick

This message was given to Tony La Rosa by someone in the Resistance in Lemont, Illinois.
 

Fr. Pfeiffer is here and is sick with perhaps pneumonia. He is coughing and coughing and very weak. He just came from Fr. Gruner’s wake and funeral Mass. He is asleep at the moment as I cancelled Mass this morning seeing the condition he was in when he got here.
 

So please keep Father Pfeiffer in your prayers.
 

Pray also for the other Resistance priests and seminarians.

 


In Defence of the Red Light Position

Let us recall what Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre said about those who want to shake hands with the Modernists whilst giving the impression of maintaining the fight for Catholic Tradition:

 

“And we must not waver for one moment either in not being with those who are in the process of betraying us.  Some people are always admiring the grass in the neighbor’s field.  Instead of looking to their friends, to the Church’s defenders, to those fighting on the battlefield, they look to our enemies on the other side.  “After all, we must be charitable, we must be kind, we must not be divisive, after all, they are celebrating the Tridentine Mass, they are not as bad as everyone says” but THEY ARE BETRAYING US – Betraying us! They are shaking hands with the Church’s destroyers.  They are shaking hands with people holding modernist and liberal ideas condemned by the Church. So they are doing the devil’s work.

 

“Thus those who were with us and were working with us for the rights of Our Lord, for the salvation of souls, are now saying, ‘So long as they grant us the old Mass, we can shake hands with Rome, no problem.’  But we are seeing how it works out.  They are in an impossible situation.  Impossible.  One cannot both shake hands with modernists and keep following Tradition.  Not possible.  Not possible.  Now, stay in touch with them to bring them back, to convert them to Tradition, yes, if you like, that’s the right kind of ecumenism!  But give the impression that after all one almost regrets any break, that one likes talking to them?  No way!”
(Two Years after the Consecrations, Address to Priests in Econe, Switzerland, September 6, 1990).

 

One can safely say that many in the current SSPX leadership fit into the category of people that Archbishop Lefebvre condemned in his statement above.  However, what can one say about those SSPX priests who do not agree with the current SSPX leadership’s position, but refuse to publicly speak out against the new direction?  Would Archbishop Lefebvre condemn them too?  In order to make a fair assessment, I think that one really needs to answer this question:  Is the public silence of the SSPX priests regarding the public liberalism of their leadership a betrayal of the Faith?  I answer in the affirmative.  Without getting into subjective judgements of the souls of any SSPX priests (or laymen), the following is my argument.

 

One does not have to positively accept or actively promote a liberal idea in order to be a traitor. A soldier that allows the enemy in because of fear for his life is still a traitor, albeit to a lesser degree than a soldier who accepts money to let the enemy in.  The essence of the two acts are, nevertheless, the same.  Furthermore, by the priests’ public silence, they allow their leadership to publicly represent their stance (e.g., the April 15, 2012 Doctrinal Declaration, the 2012 General Chapter Six Conditions, etc.).  To illustrate the importance of this point more clearly, here is an example.  If I were a member of a political party that was pro-life in its policy and then the leadership of the party convened and changed the policy to pro-abortion without requiring me to sign anything in agreement with the new policy but requiring me to not publicly oppose the new policy under the threat of being kicked out of the party, would it be morally licit for me to keep quiet?  No.  I would be morally obligated to publicly speak out.  What if, however, the policy was not changed but the leadership began and continued to publicly show leniency towards abortion despite private protests to retract the leniency; would it now be morally licit for me to keep quiet?  No.  I would still be morally obligated to publicly speak out.  In either case, my public silence would be a betrayal of the pro-life stance regardless if I am personally, perfectly pro-life and never positively speak or display otherwise.  The same line of reasoning, then, is applied to SSPX priests who remain publicly silent on the liberalism of their leadership.

 

What about the layman who assists at Masses of these SSPX priests?  Well, given the betrayal on the part of the SSPX priest, even if he were otherwise doctrinally orthodox and even if one’s own Faith is not placed in harm by attending his chapel, to actively unite in the greatest act of worship with a priest who remains publicly silent in the face of the public liberalism of his leadership is a co-operation, on the part of the layman, in that act of betrayal.  Why?  We are not speaking here about the layman simply enjoying a cup of coffee with such a priest; rather, we are speaking about the layman uniting with a priest, who is representing himself as an alter Christus in the most eminent degree, in that greatest act of worship (i.e., the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass) which itself is the most magnificent and ultimate expression of that Catholic Faith that the priest, nevertheless, fails to publicly defend in the face of the public liberalism evident in his own backyard.  The layman, by actively uniting with the priest in this greatest act of worship (which again is the magnificent and ultimate expression of the Catholic Faith), implicitly admits the moral uprightness of the priest in regards to the Catholic Faith in both the priest’s public profession and public defence of the same Catholic Faith.    Furthermore, by the fact that the priest’s leadership publicly betrays the Catholic Faith and that the priest remains publicly silent on this betrayal, the priest allows his leadership to publicly represent his stance in regards to the Catholic Faith.  Therefore, the layman also implicitly admits the moral uprightness of the priest’s leadership in regards to the Catholic Faith in both the leadership’s public profession and public defence of the same Catholic Faith.  This co-operation in the betrayal, on the part of the layman, is the case even if the layman publicly speaks out against the public liberalism of the priest’s leadership because the act of the layman’s actively uniting in the greatest act of worship with the priest undermines the layman’s own stance.  As the saying goes, “Actions speak louder than words.”  Therefore, it is an act of hypocrisy and of compromise on the part of the layman.
