From an email of Fr. Girouard sent today to his parishioners of Aldergrove and Post Falls:
ABOUT THE GENERAL CHAPTER OF THE SSPX:
It starts July 11 and ends July 21. We have preached, prayed, sacrificed for the the return of the Society to the right orientation since the disaster of the 2012 Chapter. Now is the time to intensify our sacrifices and prayers. This Friday, it will be July 13th, the anniversary of a great apparition at Fatima, where Our Lady taught us the prayer for offering our sacrifices. There was also the vision of hell, the warning about the chastisements, and the errors of Russia, and the announcement that God will ask for the Consecration of Russia. I suggest that, to the usual Abstinence of Friday, we add Fasting. I also invite you to make your fast a "Bread and Water" fast (just plain bread and water. No butter, tea, etc.). Fr. Lacouture, a Jesuit of the early 20th century, has obtained many miracles by asking people in need to do such fasts.
II THINK THAT EXTREME DISTRESS CALLS FOR EXTREME MEASURES. I WILL DO THE BREAD AND WATER FAST THIS FRIDAY. I ENCOURAGE YOU TO DO IT ALSO. IF YOU CANNOT DO IT ON FRIDAY, PLEASE DO IT ON ANOTHER DAY DURING THE CHAPTER. IF YOU CANNOT DO THE B&W FAST, DO THE NORMAL FAST. ANYTHING WILL HELP. I PROMISE YOU THAT THIS B&W FAST WILL NOT KILL YOU. IF IT DOES, I WILL PUBLICLY APOLOGIZE TO YOU.
Thank you and God bless,
