The new and big news about the SBC in Richmond, NH is that the diocese has pulled its priest and forbidden sacraments at the center, in effect putting then under an interdict.

In my opinion, this recent controversy is a blessing, as all priests ordained with the new rites have doubtful validity, and those ordained by a bishop consecrated in the new rites are also doubtful.
For many, many years, decades, the SBC had Fr. Michael Jarecki, an old and excellent diocesan priest ordained before the changes who resisted the changes and said only the true mass, and helped them by having regular sacraments at the center.
When, Fr. Jarecki sadly passed away, the center was left in the awful position of having to rely on the diocese.
I write this post with the hope of urging the the SBC to recruit a former SSPX priest to care for the spiritual needs of the hundreds of families that go there many with young children in need of a good priest. The SSPX trains its priests with excellent training and have unquestionably valid orders.
Now, obviously, the controversy of Baptism of Desire and Blood will be a sticking point, but is it possible to just say, “let’s not fight over this” and agree on EENS, and agree to ask the Pope, when the crisis end to clarify this matter of BoD and BoB for us, and we will abide by his decision, one way or the other.”
There are so many good priests that were either expelled by or left the SSPX in recent years, and I am sure one of them could be found to take over providing the sacraments at the Center. I would urge the SBC to consider this, and bring in one of these good priest who will provide unquestionably valid sacraments to the people who go there.
Think it over, and forget about dealing with the modernist diocese, who will only give you priests with doubtful orders and most likely are modernists or heretics anyway.
