  • The present situation with Bishop Fellay one man agreement with Rome, going against the advice of 3/4 of the bishops chosen by Abp. Lefevbre, reminds me of the Cristeros and how they were betrayed by the pope (whether he was ill advised, or he knew what he was doing is irrelevent). They could not be defeated in the battlefield, but lost the war at the negotiation table.

    from: http://www.catholicculture.org/culture/library/view.cfm?recnum=7826

    "Word came from Pius XI to the Cristeros asking them to lay down their arms. Over the next three months, in obedience to the Holy Father, some more reluctantly than others, that is exactly what they did."

    Betrayal, Persecution, and Mass Executions

    But within a few months of the arreglos, signs emerged that all was not well. A significant number of churches, schools, and rectories remained in government hands. Ruiz y Flores and Diaz attempted to meet with the president but were ignored. When they at last met with Portes Gil's successor, Pascual Ortiz Rubio (also handpicked by Calles) and asked him to honor his predecessor's promises, they were told that Portes Gil had promised nothing.

    Meanwhile, the Cristeros who were not willing to move out of their states were taken prisoner and executed. The "annihilation of Catholic militants after the 1929 agreement" (Bailey, Viva Cristo Rey!, 294) lasted for several years. There were mass executions in Jalisco, and reports of Cristero veterans being hunted down and killed lasted until the 1950s. It is not known how many thousands of them lost their lives after the war had been declared over.

  • Indeed.


    Jesus Degollado, commander in chief of the Cristeros, addressed his troops, his voice breaking from sorrow:

     


    His Holiness the Pope, by the intermediary of the most excellent Apostolic Nuncio, has decided, for reasons which are unknown to us but which, as Catholics, we accept, that public worship will be resumed tomorrow without the law being changed...This arrangement...has wrested from us that which is most noble and most holy on our flag, at the moment when the Church has declared that she will resign herself to what she has obtained...Consequently, the National Guard assumes responsibility for the conflict....As for ourselves as men, we have a satisfaction that no one can take from us: the National Guard does not disappear defeated by its enemies, but rather abandoned by the very ones who were to be the first to receive the fruit of our sacrifices and abnegation! Ave, Christ! Those who for You are going to humiliation, to exile, and, perhaps, to an unglorious death,...with the most fervent love salute You, and once more proclaim You as King of our country.

  • Catholics sell each other out or chicken out.  That's what's been going on for a long, long time now.  That's how things reached this point.

    Catholics who put the world first, or who think they can compromise with known enemies, continually act as destroyers of Catholic Tradition.
