Not afraid in general, but afraid to contradict on this point and to act differently.
I am a nobody; I am not expecting anyone to listen to me. But in all countries except for France most of the resistance faithful no longer attend SSPX Masses. The communiqué of the USML back last august said this was the right thing to do, because it is practically the same thing as the indulters.
The (old)SSPX made very clear its position of attending these Masses. During the Arian heresy, one of the saints ( I think St. Hermingild or something like that) refused to take communion of from the hands of a perfectly validly consecrated bishop. The law of the Church says we should not accept the sacraments from the schismatics, even though they are validly consecrated.
The Church is in a very grave crises of a doctrinal nature. It is eclipsed by heresy. We cannot have anything to do that and must react like valiant soldiers to it.
I appreciate your explanation. I don't really know much about the situation in France, but are you quite sure that everywhere else in the world, other than France, the Resistance faithful no longer attend SSPX Masses? Where do they attend, then?
I'm not sure what the USML is. Are they affiliated with the four Resistance bishops?
I understand what you are saying about the SSPX Masses being the same as the Indulterers, but I have to disagree. I stopped attending an FSSP Mass several months ago, and am now attending the local SSPX chapel again. There's a huge difference between the two. I'm so glad I stopped attending the FSSP parish. There are liberal tendencies in the FSSP, of course.
When I joined the Rosary confraternity of the Dominicans of Avrille last year, I was advised by them that it is not a good idea to attend the FSSP parish, and they were right. They didn't say anything about the SSPX, however, since the subject didn't come up.
The Dominicans of Avrille are prudent. They always have been - as far as I can tell. They say on their website that they do not define themselves by what they are against, but rather by what they are for - which is truth.
I don't see that the four Resistance bishops, or the Dominicans of Avrille, believe that the SSPX is schismatic. Though the situation with the SSPX is very serious of course, especially regarding the marriage situation.
