SSPX Resistance News / Re: Faithful's departure from SSPX explained

Incredulous, someone did reply to that above post on TIA:


 
SSPX Does a Good Job


TIA,

 I do not want to stir bitter controversy but I do want to comment.

 Concerning the person who comments on leaving SSPX, may I make a comment ?
  • The SSPX is a lifeboat in a very rough sea; no-one can imagine that life on the lifeboat will be smooth and well-organized. Times are confusing.
  • For many people there is no reasonable alternative; no "indult mass" no other Traditional orders.
  • The SSPX & followers helped me: I am a convert and wanted to be Conditionally Baptized; when I asked a number of priests they almost shook with fright and anxiety. An SSPX supporter priest was the only one who would give me this grace. The same was true of our last baby's baptism; again other priests quaked when asked for immediate Old Rite Baptism - undelayed after the birth. SSPX priest did it easily and with no problems. As one Irish friend of mine said "They'll give you the whole package."
  • It is easy to criticize the SSPX, but where would we be now without SSPX and Msgr Lefebvre's public witness? They are NOT perfect and in many ways not all right, but they do a good job.
   A.J.D.R.

Sorry, but the SSPX is no longer a safe lifeboat  :facepalm:

The Council of Trent, Canon 7 on the "Holy Sacrifice of the Mass" teaches that:

These are bad news to those who reject the NOM altogether as an evil sinful rite while at the same time recognizing the legitimacy of the Roman Pontiff who promulgated it. The only way to get around this canon is to say that the Catholic Church did NOT promulgate this new rite nor does it use it, meaning that Paul VI was not a real pope. No one who acknowledges the legitimacy of the conciliar popes can hold this position without being guilty of holding a position which refutes itself.

Yes, and notice this does not say "the rites that the Church has made obligatory", but rather "the rites that the Church USES".

Yes, J23 suppressed the cult of St Philomena as well as rehabilitated the new theology heretics.  He approved the scrapping of Catholic schemas in favor of the heretical schemas of the new theology proponents.  He was known to be suspect of heresy by the Holy Office. And obviously something very nefarious happened at the 1958 conclave.

Heck, there's very credible evidence that Roncalli was inducted into a Masonic lodge; he was always fraternizing with Communists.  Masonic newspapers around the world hailed the "election" of Roncalli.

In several letters, including his first encyclical, Roncali referred to the Holy Trinity as a "Mysterious Force" ... which is a known Masonic term (look it up).

Great point. This is also why I think that it will actually matter what position you hold during this crisis. The reason is that the R&R position is rife with anathemas and condemnations. I understand that everybody is trying to do their best but there are some positions that a Catholic cannot hold.

Stupid comments.  These are reasons for leaving the SSPX?  Sounds like somebody with sour grapes syndrome looking for justifications.

There are nutty people in EVERY group, and there's nothing unique about SSPX in attracting some of these types.  In fact, the strange people at SSPX pale in comparison to some I've run into at various Motu communities and St. Peter Society.  And I take exception to his characterizing people with various theological positions (sedevacantists, Feeneyites) as bad Catholics and/or heretics.

Fund-raisers are a necessity.  How many Novus Ordo parishes are constantly doing fund raisers and holding Bingo nights, etc.?  Eastern Rite parishes do little more than have ethnic food sales all your round.  In many cases, they need these things to stay afloat.

As to the bunker mentality, some of that simply can't be helped when Tradition has been MARGINALIZED and people find themselves attending Mass at rented hotel conference areas and in dumpy little house-like buildings.

With regard to priest being spread to thin, certain people think it more important for the faithful to receive the Sacraments and attend Mass than for the priest to be the social glue of a parish.  And that seems reasonable to me that it would be a higher priority, no?  I'd rather receive the Sacrament of Confession than play basketball with the local priest.  I've got plenty of other people to buddy around with.

This guy is a complete self-righteous jackass.

Quote from: Hermenegild
Do you include John XXIII on that list?
So the fifty other Cardinals who "elected" Roncalli were all or at least two-thirds were evil Masonic/Modernist agents?
Are you asking yourself?

No, it's most certainly not intrinsically unreasonable.  But it's hard for people to let go of their paradigms.  If someone has spent his whole life thinking one way about the world and then is confronted with something that doesn't fit the paradigm, there are two possible reactions.  You either embrace a paradigm shift or you double down (and the emotion comes form resisting the paradigm shift).

I woke up to a lot of things when I started to look into 9/11.  So much in the world isn't what it seems, and we are regularly lied to by the Masonic powers that be.  I then came to understand that the entire moon landing was faked.  So, then, what else?  I don't put it outside the realm of possibility that there's a Masonic conspiracy to promote a false paradigm about our physical world.  In fact, relativity is nothing but a scam to explain away why the Michelson-Morley experiment determined that the earth was still and not in motion.  I've seen some footage of astronauts operating in alleged low-gravity situations that was obviously faked.  Why fake that if you're really up there in a micro-gravity environment?

Baptism of Desire and Feeneyism / Re: From Father Galitzin
« Last post by An even Seven on Today at 07:57:22 AM »
yes, and Fr. Galitzin was the apostle to the Alleghenies.

Quote from: The Life and Letters of  St. Francis Xavier by Henry James Coleridge
St. Francis Xavier, May, 1546: “Here there are altogether seven towns of Christians, all of which I went through and baptized all the newborn infants and the children not yet baptized.  A great many of them died soon after their baptism, so that it was clear enough that their life had only been preserved by God until the entrance to eternal life should be opened to them.”
 
St. Francis Xavier, Feb, 1548: “The thing which I wish to commend to you above everything else is that you should employ special diligence and watchfulness in the baptism of little children, so as not to leave any lately born child not regenerated in the saving laver of Christ in any of the villages… Make search and inquiry for yourselves, and baptize with your own hands all those whom you find in want of that most necessary Sacrament.”
