Being right on the Resistance, doesnt mean always being right

  • I was thinking about the credibility and weight some people give to Fr. Pfieffer (and other priests, perhaps). It seems to me that since Fr. Pfieffer is right about the New-SSPX he must be right about all other things. I do not insult Fr. Pfeiffer, or any other priest who share his view, when I say that Fr. Pfieffer is no Archbishop Lefebvre; so to treat him as such, to follow him as such, would be wrong. The Archbishop had YEARS of experience in dealing with theology and politics. Relatively speaking, Frs. Pfieffer, Hewko and Chazal, are still 'wet behind the ears'. Does this demean the work they do? Not at all. Does this mean they have nothing to contribute? Quite the contrary! But it does mean that they may be wrong on certain matters. And it means that a man has to make a choice for himself (and family, if necessary) as to what is most prudential (which not ought be a boogey-word in our day, despite its misapplication by +Fellay & co.) and right. What's prudent for one may not be for another, as this isn't a matter of fact and defined truth, but of prudence.

  • Something else that just came to mind is the oddity of another kind: there seems to be a seeking of solidarity with sedevecantists over with those who do not hold identical views on the Resistance. There is almost an effort, if not in words, than in a summation of their actions, to shun and marginalize those who are/ were SSPX adherents but now support the resistance, yet who do not hold fast to the American Resistance (as I see and coin it). I am not speaking only of those on this website, but on others (fora, websites and social networks). Perhaps this is natural, given the fighting spirit we ought have (and often do have if we're willing to take on the 'establishment' of the NeoSSPX); but it is an erroneous and paradoxical as I see it.
