Update:
Supporters of the SSPX Resistance in Texas have another reason to rejoice!

The SSPX Resistance chapel in Texas now has a website. Fr. Zendejas continues to say weekly Mass here, outside San Antonio, TX. The chapel is in Seguin, which is right outside San Antonio, Texas.
http://www.StDominicsChapel.com


Here's the big news of the day --

Fr. Zendejas has promised Mass to the chapel here (St. Dominic's) as well as a new location in Houston, TX, EVERY SUNDAY from now on. It will be either him saying the Mass or another priest working with him, depending on his schedule.

The SSPX Resistance now has another focal point: the area from south central Texas towards Houston.

At his first Mass in Houston since he left the SSPX, 90 people showed up. He surprised them all (or at least most of them!) with the news that he would be saying Mass for the SSPX Resistance faithful EVERY SUNDAY from now on.

Recall that Father was in the Houston priory in Texas for a number of years, after his long tenure at the SSPX priory in Ridgefield, CT. So he is not exactly an unknown quantity there.

This kind of offer (of commitment, regularity and stability) does for chapel growth what gasoline does for a fire. It allows people to leave an existing chapel completely with no fear of having to face the ire of other parishioners/priests when they go back to their old chapel on "the off weeks".

Apparently, the telephone switchboards were lit up like a Christmas tree this past week, as people called each other about this upcoming Mass. Threats were made; some people got cold feet, while others decided to jump in.

Suffice to say, this has been the equivalent of a nuclear bomb going off in the world of Tradition, with Texas being ground zero.

I'm sure Fr. Kurtz (the prior in Houston), Fr. Wegner (the District Superior, who was scheduled to come to Texas soon) and even Bishop Fellay will be getting little sleep tonight, as they figure out how they are going to deal with this.

Long live the SSPX Resistance and all those who faithfully resist Modernism! And long live Texas!

    Not necessarily personally. He is working with one other priest (so far).

    We conclude logically that religion can give an efficacious and truly realistic answer to the great modern problems only if it is a religion that is profoundly lived, not simply a superficial and cheap religion made up of some vocal prayers and some ceremonies...

    Odd comparison. There's nothing left after a nuclear blast.
    "If I could only make the faithful sing the Kyrie, the Gloria, the Credo, the Sanctus and the Agnus Dei ... that would be to me the finest triumph sacred music could have, for it is in really taking part in the liturgy that the faithful will preserve their devotion. I would take the Tantum ...

    Indeed --

    Viva Cristo Rey!

    Father is a tireless warrior for Christ the King. I am particularly impressed, though, by his level of self-control. In particular, the way he has subjected his emotions to his reason. You can tell he has emotions by his speech and his actions, but he controls most of the negative ones quite well. For example, the emotion of discouragement. Despite lots of opposition, he doesn't let himself get discouraged.

    I guess you can't teach the Ignatian Exercises for years without taking a lot of it to heart!

    Well, at least a nuclear detonation is a game changer! You have to forget about how things were "before".

    Everything is measured as "before the flame deluge" and "after the flame deluge".

    But yes, it's not a very flattering comparison. Who prays for a nuclear detonation? But this is a great blessing for this area.

    Nevertheless, Father himself compared it to a volcano. Have you ever seen a volcano explode? They do explode, then thousands of tons of ash and gases are vented into the atmosphere, and lava flows down all around, wiping out everything within a certain radius.

  • Does this mean that he will establish a retreat house in Texas?  Any details about this yet?

    I think it means his New England plans went bust.

    I think it means another priest has come to help which allows him to provide a regular Sunday Mass in both locations.  I know that is not what you wanted to hear but that is the answer.

    No, his plans did get ditched.

    Are you thankful for this?
