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.
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!
