I cleaned up MOST of his letter; the parts missing weren't very "interesting". I have attached the PDF if you want to see those parts.
When you copy-paste from the PDF, most words have random spaces added all over the place. It was quite annoying and tedious to clean it up.
To Catholics Fighting For Tradition;
I come with no political agenda, nor touting "my own apostolate", but simply come as a Catholic
priest, as Abp. Lefebvre wanted his priests to do, responding to the call of the faithful, coming as
ambassadors of Our Lord Jesus Christ and of His Holy Catholic Church, knowing She supplies
jurisdiction for the sacraments due to the emergency crisis in the Church.
To be in the position of an "independent" priest is not my choice, is most unpleasant and I long to
submit to a bishop. But please, help me find one who has not slid from the solid position of Abp.
Lefebvre, that is, one who has not compromised with Modernist Rome, or on the New Mass or is
not promoting New Mass "miracles", but simply holds the clear doctrinal line of Abp. Lefebvre at
all levels: on sedevacantism, Vatican II, Novus Ordo Mass, Indult/ Motu Proprio Masses, etc., etc.
If you do find one, I will gladly throw myself at his feet!
In the same vein, it must be said, the rising movement of lay committees and lay-run websites,
without guidance and supervision from a priest or bishop is most detestable to the mind of the
Church. It has recently led to the promotion of error and heresies, diatribes of mockery,
vulgarities and scandalous behavior, unprofessional journalism by slandering any one, any time,
while publishing anonymous letters that provoke the basest sensationalism and most crude
detractions. This is precisely why St. Pius X demanded censorship of publications and their
supervision under the, then, trustworthy Catholic Bishops! (cf. Pascendi). It is necessary that
apostolic laity publish good doctrine and promote the Catholic Faith and now, more than ever,
the clear stand of Abp. Lefebvre! Unfortunately , however, the scarcity of sound doctrine in
prelates in this post-Conciliar nightmare finds the laity somewhat leaderless, but let them,
nevertheless, be guided at least by the doctrinal clarity and fraternal charity which shined in
previous Catholic publications, when they were under the guidance of good Traditional-minded
clergy . On one hand, "it is necessary for scandals to arise rather than the truth be silent," as St.
Gregory said, but quite another to be a tabloid from the gutter and making a profit from it! (cf.
My reasons for leaving OLMC in Kentucky were made public, clear and still remain the same. I
refuse to endanger the validity of the sacraments, and promote a dubious bishop. I hold exactly
the same position of Abp. Lefebvre on the objective dubiousness of the New Rite of ordinations and
episcopal consecrations. (See: thecatacombs.org for his own extensive explanations on this topic).
Abp. Lefebvre was a far greater theologian than any this century , with experience on the
mission fields. His position on all levels far outweigh any feather-weights of our time!
Due to the absurdity of our apocalyptic times and the acceleration of all evils, it is necessary to
state positions and clarify any confusion. So, let us pull together as members of the Church
Militant, pray and fight for her former glory , which will only return when the Pope dutifully
obeys Our Lady of Fatima and Rome comes back to Catholic Tradition!
Sincerely in Christ, Resurrected from the Tomb!
