Case in point: Our SSPX chapel had a French priest who decided that we should all stand, not kneel for the SANCTUS. (The more recent SSPX Missals have erased the instruction to kneel, but it is present in the Fr. LaSance Missal to kneel at the SANCTUS, one of the most reverent moments in preparation for the Consecration).
At our chapel we do kneel during a Low Mass but have been told not to "slide" off the pew, but to stand up momentarily first and then kneel. At the High Mass we stand during the singing and kneel afterwards. No one has been instructed to sing along w/the choir although some do so anyway.
So how about this:
The choir director is not doing a very good job, and does not want to have the
Tenor part sung, while Bass is added when someone shows up to sing it.
Meanwhile, the men with Tenor voices are relegated to double the Soprano an
octave lower, that is, below the Altos. So when a man comes to Mass and is not
welcome in the choir because he likes to sing the Tenor part - also, he knows that
octaves sound pretty compromised, if not just dumb. He stays in the pews, but
when the choir sings a motet or Kyriale or whatever and he knows the tenor part,
he can't help himself but to sing along, being the only Tenor voice in the room.
And nobody seems to notice, except the director, who comments later, without
saying that he should not have sung.
Is the Tenor breaking the rules?
In the 1980's a holy victim soul, Father La Praz, revealed that the SSPX had Freemasons amongst them already. A word of warning to Bishop Williamson and company. The Freemasons will send their men to you also. Be prudent.
I have heard that before, but wonder why those who really know, don't give names, so the priests and the laity could be aware of those infiltrators.
OK, we acknowledge the existence of freemasons inside the SSPX. Then what? Why not to say Fr. A and Fr. B are freemasons and there are probably more?
You don't even have to BE a Freemason to be one of the dirty workers doing their
bidding. They say John XXIII was a Freemason, well maybe he was, but even if
was NOT an actual member, he still did a lot of damage by doing the things that
he would have done anyway if he WAS one.
Two more things:
Freemasons retaliate, and the parishoners who know the score might be reluctant
to spill the beans because they might be put on the hit list and end up leaving their
wives widows and their children fatherless.
Bishop Williamson is not ignorant of Freemasonry. He knows how to run some
routine exercises as part of everyday activities and requirements that evoke
telltale responses from his subjects. He is watching, and he keeps track. He won't
reveal his methods because then the methods would be obsolete. Rest assured
a Freemason is not very likely to get past his scrutiny. ..................
