This is the same +Fellay who has been quoted below as answering the
request to renew the Consecration to Our Lady by saying that he would
not? 1984 Immaculate Heart Consecration
Posted by The Editor on May 14, 2013 at 3:00 PM
At the Crisis in the Church Conference (1st & 2nd June), amongst other things planned to take place, Fr. Pfeiffer, Fr. Hewko, Fr. Kramer and any other priests present (some others have expressed an interest in coming, we await confirmation) will be renewing on behalf of the SSPX the consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, made in 1984 by Archbishop Lefebvre. In recent years this cosecration has not been renewed; worryingly forgetful, you might think! Well, there may be another reason. We know of at least one priest who specifically begged Bp. Fellay to renew this consecration. Bishop Fellay replied that he would not.
But do not take our word for that, dear reader: read the text, and judge for yourself whether in this climate of 'Roman diplomacy' and delicate speech such a consecration would be deemed politic or helpful towards the 'discussions with Rome.' What's that I hear someone say? There aren't any longer 'discussions with Rome'...? Very well, let's wait and see if Bishop Fellay decides to renew the consecration, or whether that honour is to be left to Fr. Pfeiffer, Fr. Hewko and Fr. Kramer
to perform on his behalf.
Final thought for your consideration: compare the text with the text of the 2013 consecration to St. Joseph. We believe it tells its own story.
The text of the Consecration to the Immaculate Heart can be read here
At a recent Rosary Rally, I asked Fr. Gruner if he would be willing to
pick up where +Fellay left off when he stopped promoting the intention
to have the Rosary Crusades dedicated to the Collegial Consecration
to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. He declined to answer the question,
in front of hundreds of witnesses.
I found that a bit odd at the time. . . . . . . . . :confused1:
P.S. this Fr. Kramer
to whom Ed. refers -- could it be Fr. Paul Kramer? If so,
he is billed as one of the speakers on Fr. Gruner's list for this conference
and also at the London SSPX Crisis?
According to Ecclesia Militans
, it is the same Fr. Paul Kramer:
Bishop Fellay is going to England to give a conference in an area well known to be unaccepting of his views on the new direction of the SSPX. The Recusant has launched a counter attack and has arranged a competing conference for the same day to outline the views of the Resistance. Fathers Pfeiffer, Hewko and Father Paul Kramer will be in attendance.
This is the first Fr. Gruner Fatima Peace Conference where the purchase
of tickets is being offered in advance. There is an offer for "one free
day" ticket on the website. In the past all his conferences were free.
There was a free-will donation box for those who can afford it, and his
books were for sale, however a lot of Crusaders and pamphlets were
available for free. Source
BISHOP BERNARD FELLAY
We are pleased to welcome Bishop Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X, to the distinguished assembly of speakers at “Fatima: Path to Peace!”. Bishop Fellay began his priestly studies at the SSPX seminary in Econe, Switzerland, in 1977. He was ordained by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre in 1982 and acted as Bursar for the SSPX for the next 10 years. In 1988, he was consecrated bishop and in 1994 was elected Superior General. He was re-elected to another 12-year term in 2006.
