By the way, I probably know more about the SSPX than Telesphorus -- good and bad. I was in their seminary for 3 1/3 years.
And let's just say he's not the only one whose personal life was touched by the SSPX.
But I continue to attend their chapels because I know that each priest is a different man, which means that some can be holy while others have serious issues. AND getting the Sacraments in an atmosphere where the entire Catholic Faith is preserved is very important. Likewise, now that I have a family, it's important that the sermons be sound and the Catholic Faith be taught inviolate.
About the only flaw at my current chapel is that a bunch of the parishioners like things the way they are, and they don't want to expand to a larger facility, even though visitors have to watch Mass on a TV set in the parish hall because there's no room for them in the chapel. Such visitors seldom come back a 2nd time. We're also in flagrant violation of fire codes seven ways from Sunday.
Apparently, for some old people, it's more important to have "stability" and comfortable routine than it is to save souls.
