In a conference given by Fr. Joseph Pfeiffer on August 14, 2013 in Veneta, Oregon, he elaborates on the topic of continued attendance at Masses offered by priests of the SSPX.  The SSPX is dead because its principles have moved away from Catholic Tradition.  This places the SSPX in the same theological boat as the FSSP (Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter) in that one error in principle makes a group pseudo-Traditional.  Therefore, objectively speaking, we should no longer be attending SSPX Masses.  The faithful do come to this understanding at different times, but it is true in reality nonetheless.  Here is the relevant extract of that conference (left click to the left of the 00:00 marker to play):

My my how times have changed.  Below is a sermon given by Fr. Patrick Girouard on August 4, 2013 in Aldergrove, B.C.  In it he reads a district letter written by Fr. Jean Violette in December 2003 when Fr. Violette was SSPX District Superior of Canada.  Fr. Violette used the same arguments then against Fr. Aulagnier, who was expelled from the SSPX by Bishop Fellay for wanting a canonical agreement with Rome, that the Resistance now uses against Bishop Fellay and the SSPX leaders.  But where is Fr. Violette’s voice to be heard today?  Nowhere!  Rather, he has chosen to follow his superior, regardless.

 

This is another piece of evidence of the betrayal of the memory and mission of Archbishop Lefebvre on the part of Bishop Fellay and company.

 

For those who haven’t already, join the Resistance!  It is in the Resistance where the spirit of the Archbishop lives.

In a conference given by Fr. Joseph Pfeiffer on August 14, 2013 in Veneta, Oregon, he essentially confirms what I wrote in a previous post that the first condition determined as necessary to be granted by Rome prior to the SSPX accepting a canonical regularization contains non-Catholic variants of ecumenism and religious liberty.  Here is the relevant extract of that conference (left click to the left of the 00:00 marker to play):

 

 

Knowing that this official SSPX policy is unacceptable, one ought not to assist at SSPX Masses any longer.

Bishop Bernard Fellay’s Doctrinal Declaration of April 15, 2012 is the worst act of His Excellency as Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X. With this Declaration, he was willing to sell the farm to Modernist Rome; however, for some reason or another, Rome refused. Against those of the Resistance who claim that the mindset of this Declaration has infected the SSPX from the top down (and it certainly has) and therefore one cannot remain silent, many priests and faithful who remain within the SSPX and refuse to speak out against the Declaration counterclaim that the Declaration has not become SSPX policy; therefore, there is no need to speak out. Since principle seems to be so important to these priests and faithful (and it should very well be), let us then look at what has indeed become official SSPX policy.

 

The SSPX General Chapter Statement of July 14, 2012 states that the SSPX superiors have “determined and approved the necessary conditions for an eventual canonical normalization”. The Statement itself does not outline these necessary conditions; rather, Fr. Christian Thouvenot, Secretary General of the SSPX, sent an internal letter to all SSPX priests in which the necessary conditions (and unnecessary conditions???) were outlined. The first condition is as follows:

 

“Freedom to keep, to transmit and to teach the sane doctrine of the unchanging magisterium of the Church and of the unchangeable truth of Divine Tradition ; freedom to defend, to correct and to reprove, even in public, those responsible for the errors or novelties of modernism, of liberalism, of The Second Vatican Council and their consequences.”

 

This necessary condition is the only one directly related to doctrine; hence, it is the most important. With this first condition, the SSPX is basically willing to set its doctrinal differences with Rome aside, so long as Rome gives the SSPX the right to teach the Faith and condemn the errors of Vatican II against the same Faith. The first fundamental problem with this position (while overlooking the fact that to ask for the right to do what is commanded by God is itself nonsensical) is that doctrine here is not given primacy; hence, what we have is a non-Catholic variant of ecumenism. The second fundamental problem is that since the SSPX does not demand from Rome the same as part of the agreement (that is, to teach the Faith and condemn the errors of Vatican II against the same Faith), contained within this position is an implicit but intrinsic proposition that Rome has the right to teach those errors it currently holds; hence, what we have is a non-Catholic variant of religious liberty. These two problems reduce the Faith to the level of opinion as is evident within the conciliar church and in its relations with the world. Unity for the sake of unity, whether intended or not, becomes the primary focus; however, a unity not based on the Faith is not of God.

 

Given the serious flaws with the first necessary condition, the SSPX leaders and the priests who explicitly consent to it are co-operating in objective grave sin against the Faith, at least on the level of principle. For those SSPX priests who remain silent, we can conclude without rash judgement that they let the SSPX leaders speak for them; therefore, they too co-operate in objective grave sin.

 

Let us pray and hope that good-willed priests come to realize the grave position of their society’s official policy and take the necessary course of action, that is, to speak out against it no matter the consequences.

In a sermon given by Fr. David Hewko on July 28, 2013 he hints that resistors should leave the SSPX.  Here is a link to an extract of that sermon:

In a sermon given by Fr. Joseph Pfeiffer on March 10, 2013 in Kansas City, he condemns the silence of SSPX priests in the face of the Doctrinal Declaration of Bishop Fellay dated April 15, 2012.  He also says that the faithful who know about the new direction of the SSPX should no longer be attending SSPX Masses.  Listen to Father’s argument in this extract.

This crisis in the SSPX brought to mind a video promoting the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate that was posted (and then taken down) on the La Porte Latine, the French SSPX District’s official website.  I believe this video was posted on the website sometime in late 2010, but I am not certain about the timeframe.  What I am certain about is that it was posted on the website at one point and then taken down.  It may have been taken down because of complaints.  In February 2011, I e-mailed the webmaster of La Porte Latine (and a few SSPX priests) about this to ask why this was posted on the website given that the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate are a pseudo-Traditional group in which the priests celebrate both the Novus Ordo Missae and the Traditional Latin Mass.  I did not receive a response from the webmaster the first time, so I wrote again and again and never received a response.  I also did not receive a response from any of the SSPX priests.  At the same time, I sent a letter to the Capuchins in Morgon about this.  I did receive a response and was just basically informed that La Porte Latine had made a mistake.  Some mistake!

 

This is just another piece of evidence of the neo-SSPX’s direction towards Modernist Rome.

 

Here is the link to the video on gloria.tv.  At the end of the video, there is a note indicating that the French subtitles were inserted for La Porte Latine.
