Important letter but there are quite of few contradictory statements in it though; compare this:Fr. de Chambord
"I have to tell you some sad news. I had some serious problems in the apostolate of my Congregation, the Society of Saint Pius X. I had to leave it, unfortunately. These problems were about our work of priests: several souls were left in danger of eternal damnation. And we are priests to save souls."
"It is doing a good work in the whole world; I received these fruits like many people. It is very faithful to Catholic doctrine, to the Church and to the Pope."
If it is "faithful to Catholic Doctrine
", how can it leave, at the same time, "several souls in danger of eternal damnation
Or yet on this other paragraph, where he says:
"My dear friends, many of you suffered and will continue to suffer in difficulties we have in our combat for the Holy Church: to keep the true doctrine we received like an inheritance. Don’t despair. Don’t fall into bitterness.
And right after:
"The Society of Saint Pius X is faithful to the truth."
Again, if it is faithful to the truth, why did we suffer, why will we continue to suffer in "keeping our true doctrine and our inheritance
Now let's look at this one:
"Your criterion has to be simple in the Crisis: to stay in peace, quiet, if they don’t change anything you received: the Catholic Mass, the sacraments and the Catechism transmitted by the Holy Church in the past. Even if we or an angel from heaven should preach (to you) a gospel other than the one that we preached to you, let that one be anathema!"
Since he didn't stay "in peace and quiet"
himself, is there any doubt they have already changed "the Catholic Mass, the sacraments and/or the Catechism transmitted in the past"
"However it has to be clear: obedience and respect to the authority in the Church are not an obligation to accept something endangering the faith or the salvation of the souls".
Is the SSPX "forcing him to accept something endangering the faith or the salvation of souls"?
Because we received the priesthood to transmit the treasure of the faith; to continue faithfully the work of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Apparently he could no longer do that within the new SSPX.
We don’t have authority to innovate. We cannot be an obstacle to the salvation of souls.
That means he has witness both innovations and obstacles to save souls.
"If some catholic has some evidences of this situation, he can disobey with peace of his conscience. We must obey God rather than men".
"I had to leave my Congregation because I stayed in the sad situation when we have to say “no” in conscience
. I hope it will be not the same for you". [/color]
I think we can safely say he has some evidence, can't we?
