Marcel Lefebvre, were he alive, was a big enough soul to have perhaps navigated us out of this growing cultish sectarianism. Obviously, leaders like Bp. Fellay, Frs. Courtier and Rostand, et al., do not have this largeness of soul. They are incapable of seeing the bigger picture. After awhile, the siege mentality sets in, and these leaders take refuge behind the walls of their own narrow traditional Catholic interests. It becomes a mindless battle for turf.
That's an apt measure of the crisis in the XSPX.
They're incapable of seeing the bigger picture because they are caught up in the same unclean spirit that ABL fought against. ABL founded the Society with a fighting spirit to battle Modernism and the liberal roots of Newrome's aggiornamento
with the "satanic scourge" of the Church
(which is atheistic Communism -- cf. DR
, 1937, Pius XI).
For inasmuch as they are blind to this satanic scourge and persist in their pursuit of making a 'deal' with modernist Rome (even while they lie and claim that no such thing is afoot!), the Menzingen-denizens in their train blindly headed for Rome (and "those who want to get off will get off"
- Fr. Nicolas Pfluger), is nothing but the blind being led by the blind, and the train together with Newrome will fall into the pit.
Wouldn't it be terrible if that literally were to happen?
This "fighting spirit" that ABL BUILT IN to the fledgeling Society was under subtle undermining even while he was alive, which was a cause of much grief for him, but only 3 years after he died, the mistake-bishop whom he regrettably
consecrated was raised to Superior General, even though ABL had made it clear that he wanted a priest, not any bishop, to hold that position. Right away, upon his election, +F, the inexperienced non-pastor, began his slow, steady work (like that of termites) infesting the Society with his minions, promoting his yes-men, and gradually turning that fighting spirit that ABL had aimed at the enemy, turning it around so as to now attack the solid and good priests within the Society itself.
For now, +F and his Fellayite minions do not make war with the unclean spirit of Vat.II anymore, they make war with +W and Fr. Girouard and Fr. Pinaud and Fr. Chazal, and Fr. Altamira and Fr. Faure, among others.
Now, Vat.II is "95% acceptable," even though every time +F refers to some part of Vat.II as something he wants to accommodate, it's something in that dirty 5% that is UNACCEPTABLE (or so he would lead you to believe).
Do You Want Him To Be YOUR Leader?
If he had any common decency, he would step down.
