I once wrote this about Fr. Cooper (which was not particularly eloquent, because it came from the heart, and was impromptu and somewhat emotional):https://www.cathinfo.com/sspx-resistance-news/ironic-to-hear-sean-johnson-call-for-unity-among-trads/
The Fruit of Fr. Cooper’s Death
May 2, 2018
The SSPX and faithful (internal resistance and accordist alike) were mourning the death of Fr. Cooper.
The Resistance blogs were all crying out for prayers for a holy priest, and none were heard to make untimely remarks about Fr. Cooper’s adherence to the ralliement.
In Boston, Kentucky they were having a sung Requiem Mass for the repose of the soul of Fr. Cooper.
By his death, Fr. Cooper brought about what no bishops or priests have accomplished since 2011:
A momentary unity among Tradition.
Like we once had not so long ago.
Panic in Rome!!!
For a few days, the fighting stops.
What was it about Fr. Cooper that achieved this momentary unity?
It was this:
We all claimed him as one of ours: One of the family of Tradition.
That unity could be preserved, if those who’s opinions mattered focused on the preservation of Tradition, rather than other things.
If they had faith in the invincibility and indefectability of Tradition.
This was the grace won by Fr. Cooper’s death, I believe:
By his death, he momentarily reunited Tradition, which for the briefest of moments felt its old strength return.
He reminded us such a thing WAS POSSIBLE AFTER ALL.
What strength Tradition could retain, if it was faithful to the grace won by years of pain and suffering from a holy priest!!!
What a force it could still be for the salvation of souls!
I hope the right people will dwell on this.
