    And for those having trouble downloading things and just want to
    read it (I've taken the liberty of cleaning up a few typos and threw
    in some paragraph breaks where it slams the point home - you
    know, like Fr. Pfeiffer sounds when he preaches!):

    Our Lady of Mount Carmel
    1730 N. Stillwell Rd., Boston Ky 40107

    Dear Friends and Benefactors,

    The Mayan Calendar predicts that the world will end on December 21,
    2012. According to the Agence France-Press, Pope Benedict XVI’s
    approach to the consummation of the world is more encouraging:

    During his weekly Angelus address from the window of his Vatican
    apartments on St. Peter’s Square, Benedict spoke of extracts from
    the Bible that speak of ‘‘the sun and moon going out, the stars falling
    from the sky’’. Several films and documentaries have promoted
    the idea that the ancient Mayan calendar predicts that doomsday is
    next month, on December 21, 2012.

    But Benedict said that Jesus ‘‘does not describe the end of the world,
    and when he uses apocalyptic images, he is not acting the prophet.
    On the contrary, he wants to stop his disciples of every epoch from
    being curious over dates, forecasts, and wants to give them the key
    to ... the right road to walk today and tomorrow to enter into the
    eternal life,’’ he said.

    As many as 90,000 people are expected to attend a massive event in
    Guatemala City on December 21, just in case the world actually does
    end, while tour groups are promoting doomsday-themed getaways.
    (Agence France-Presse: )

    Did the Mayans have a better understanding of the world’s end than
    our present Holy Father? How has it happened that the head of the
    Catholic Church has said, "Jesus is not acting the prophet.”?

    At least the Mayans knew the world would end in a calamity.  Pope
    Benedict XVI did not affirm the teaching of the end of the world, an
    essential Truth in our Credo!

    2012 will not be the year of the end of the world. But was it the year
    that has marked the most pivotal time in the history of our beloved
    Society of St. Pius X? Has it been the year that ushered in a new era
    for Tradition? Or, has it been the year in which the SSPX World of
    Archbishop Lefebvre came to an end?

    In the March 2012 edition of the SSPX internal publication Cor Unum,
    SSPX Superior General Bishop Fellay communicated to the members of
    the Fraternity that the SSPX must have a new attitude towards Rome
    because things in Rome have changed. (cf. Cor Unum March 2012).

    On fourteenth day of July in 2012, the General Chapter of the Society
    of St. Pius X issued a Statement that was a startling departure from
    the clear position of both Archbishop Lefebvre and the previous
    General Chapter of 2006. The new Chapter declared: "The novelties
    of the Second Vatican Council remain tainted with errors... we find
    our sure guide in this uninterrupted Magisterium.’’ Does this
    ‘‘Magisterium’’ include Vatican II or not? Is this not ambiguous
    language? This Neo-SSPX also declared that it was ‘‘waiting for the
    day when an open and serious debate [with Rome] will become

    In the Old-SSPX world of Archbishop Lefebvre, there was not even a
    thought of waiting for a ‘‘serious debate to become possible.’’ The
    Old-SSPX did not wait; it condemned Vatican II and its wicked spirit
    boldly, publicly, and clearly in the face of popes, bishops, priests, and
    the entire world, without respect of persons. The Old-SSPX of
    Archbishop Lefebvre declared Vatican II to be the fruit of a New
    Conciliar Magisterium containing heresies and errors. In the Old-SSPX,
    we did not "find our sure guide in (Ed. note: New Rome's)
    uninterrupted Magisterium which by its teaching authority transmits
    the revealed deposit of Faith in perfect harmony with the truths that
    the entire Church has professed always and everywhere’’.  We simply
    repeated the teaching of our Founder who said in his 1974
    Declaration: ‘‘It is . . . impossible for any conscientious and faithful
    Catholic to espouse this Reformation or to submit to it in any way
    whatsoever.’’ (Archbishop Lefebvre Declaration Nov. 21, 1974).

    2012 was the year in which that Old-SSPX world ended in
    (SSPX Headquarters).

    The Neo-SSPX world, born officially on July 14, 2012 brought to our
    chapels ambiguous language, mixing the two opposed
    Magisteria into a two-in-one Magisterium — ‘‘two in one flesh.’’  The
    Neo-SSPX looks at the battle between Tradition and Modernism as
    a fight between spouses in a rough marriage, whereas the
    Old-SSPX simply saw Modernist Rome as something "we refuse
    and have always refused’’ (ABL 1974 Declaration) since such a union
    was an unthinkable adultery.

    The Neo-SSPX gave us new conditions to accompany its new
    doctrine. ‘‘We have determined and approved the conditions for
    an eventual canonical normalization.’’ It had to replace the old
    condition of Roman conversion before any submission to it.
    Hence six new conditions accompanied the July 14 Neo-Charter of
    our Neo-SSPX including requesting of Rome the ‘‘freedom
    to preach the truth’’ —  a freedom that no martyr ever asked for
    (1st condition), and a willingness to submit our sheep to the
    Modernist wolves (2nd ‘‘wishable’’ condition).  2012 was the year
    that these new conditions of compromise replaced the Catholic
    combat of Archbishop Lefebvre who considered it a most grave
    obligation to preach the truth with or without permission
    would not allow the sheep begging him for the bread of the pure
    Faith to be placed under the authority of Modernist wolves.

    Archbishop Lefebvre expected and hoped for nothing less than the
    complete conversion of the Conciliar Rome of Modernist
    Evolutionism back to the Eternal Rome of the Unchanging Holy
    Roman Catholic Faith of her forefathers.

    2012 marked the end of the Old-SSPX unity in the Doctrine of the
    Faith which it replaced with a new unity found in the Person
    of its Superior General; ‘‘united with its Superior General’’ (July 14,
    2012 General Chapter Statement).

    2012 was the first year of visible division within the ranks of the
    SSPX. It was the year of division even among its four Bishops.
    Three were against one and one against three. (April 7 and April 14
    letters of the bishops to each other). This division was on the very
    nature of the ongoing battle of Catholics against the modernist
    heresy. The most grave sign of this division was the expulsion of
    Bishop Richard Williamson, and the sidelining of Bishop Tissier, now
    in unofficial ‘‘exile’’ in Chicago. It was the year of refusals of
    ordinations, refusals of Communion, expulsion of priests, new
    declarations, threats to the faithful, confusion in the souls of some,
    fear in the souls of many, and a sorrow in the hearts of all who love
    the work of the holy Archbishop Lefebvre.

    2012 was the year of the adoption by the SSPX leadership of a new
    language of ambiguity, and an entirely new direction. 2012
    marked the year in which SSPX pulpits warned the faithful, not
    against the errors and heresies of the Council, but against applying
    themselves to the study of the crisis within Tradition.
    2012 marked
    the year when the pulpits of the SSPX were turned into organs
    of dissemination of a party line, which calls for the faithful to do no
    more than to trust and obey the Superiors, who have the ‘‘grace
    of state’’ to know better what is the right path for all.

    The pulpits of the SSPX once instructed the faithful to study the crisis
    in the Church, in order to comprehend the evils of Modernism and
    the New Mass, as well as to know and love the answer to
    this crisis — the True Faith, the True Mass, the True Sacraments,
    and the True fulfillment of Our Lady’s request at Fatima, which will
    usher in the reestablishment of the Catholic social order.
    In the glory days of the SSPX, chapels were opened in basements
    and garages. In those basements, Grandma, her little grandchildren
    and the few wayward souls in attendance would agree with the
    priest’s preaching on the Only Faith which matches the world
    God made; though in a Mass with the non-matching vestments.
    When what the priest had said was repeated to Grandpa, whose
    hearing aid wasn’t working — though all at Mass could hear its
    whistle — he too would heartily agree and dream of the future of
    Tradition returning to the Church in which he was baptized . . . of the
    victory of Mary. . . into every corner of the world.

    What happened? ‘‘I have this against thee, that thou hast left thy
    first charity’’
    (Apoc. 2:4).  The Lord cautioned the church of Ephesus:
    ‘‘Remember therefore, from whence thou hast fallen, and repent
    and do the former works: or else I will come to thee, and will move
    thy lamp stand out of its place, unless thou repentest.’’
    (Apoc. 2:5).

    What are we to do? We must continue to ‘‘work out our salvation
    in fear and trembling’’ remaining true to the Faith of all time waiting
    for the day of Rome's conversion through Our Lady's victory
    prophesied at Fatima.

    We now have a fledgling web site which will be
    updated as much as possible with latest Mass schedules and so on.
    Another web site will also try to keep
    you up to date. Enclosed are two flyers, one ‘‘Introibo ad altare
    on our present SSPX crisis with a look at what we must do,
    namely, persevere without change in the work and line of our holy
    Founder; and the other with some quotes of our Founder on ‘‘The
    Roman Question.’’

    There are now five priests living in the ‘‘priory of expelled padres’’ at
    Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Please keep Frs. David Hewko, Francois
    Chazal (from France), Arturo Vargas (from Mexico), Richard Voigt,
    myself, as well as the 30 or so other priests, independents and
    SSPXers, who are staying faithful in the firm line set out by Archbishop
    Lefebvre for our ongoing battle against an ever-increasing Modernism
    in our world,

    In Christ,
    [signed: Fr. Joseph Pfeiffer]
