  • Wow. They've really tried going out of their way this time. I got a giant packet from the SSPX, including fancy CDs of Father Themann's talks, and even a summary and a long letter from Bishop Fellay. Anyone else get this garbage (cause that's where it went?)

    But let your speech be yea, yea: no, no: and that which is over and above these, is of evil.

    So that is where everyone's money is going.  The funds from Fr. Rostand's "2012 Lenten Appeal".  Support us, so we can "support" your chapel.

    Remember the slogan: "You need your chapel.  And your chapel needs you." appeal?

  • I'm not on the mailing list, but the CDs were available for anyone interested at our chapel.
    "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 ...

  • In Phoenix too, mention was made of the CDs being in the bookstore.  I don't know if they are giving them away or selling them.

    It would be your call to estimate the funding required to undertake this
    initiative.  If the CDs had color images printed on them and came in
    'jewel' cases with glossy fold-out indexes they may have run up to $2 or
    $3 to produce.  Then with the printed material, another dollar or two,
    so you could be up to $10 or $15, plus postage -- that would be close
    to $20.  Then times it by the mailing list, what, 2,000 recipients, and
    that could be $40,000 to send out a promo for more money, basically.

    If they can't impress you with sound teaching (then they would make
    themselves look like Resistance priests!) they resort to pompous the
    windbag approach, you know, so at least you can think you're getting
    SOMETHING for your money!

    There was more --
    "I know you want to do all you can to help your chapel, so as an extra incentive, I'm offering you unique packages as my way of saying "thank you" for your support (please see insert for photos and descriptions)."  

    And --
    "P.S.: Your gift needs to be post marked no later than April 30, 2013 in order to be eligible for these special offers!"

    Evidently too many didn't 'make it' by April 30th, and, sadly, too many
    never 'made it' at all.  That's because they were never 'sent' ........  :)

    So, consequently, Fr. Rostand had stockpiles leftover, which he doesn't
    want to become outdated, so he's doing the PR re-branding thing and
    sending it out for PR purposes.  Only the PR people didn't figure we
    would be onto this scheme.  Plus, remember, their service doesn't come
    with any guarantees.  They rely entirely on the success of their past
    clients to promote their own credibility.  Remember:  they didn't want
    the SSPX to be a "blemish" on their reputation.


    As one of their former clients said, "You cain't always git what you
    want."
    And he was a Brit, using an American accent!  (joke)


    But seriously,

    Quote from: John Grace

    Good idea.  Write on there: "Thanks but no thanks -- P.S.  I want my
    money back."

  • In the more "controversial" chapels the package is being given away, in some others they'll try to make a buck or two.

    Nevertheless this is not directed for those on the Regina Coeli mailing list only, but for the general public as well. What a waste of money with such a pile of...

    Reminds me of Brother Dimond of the Holy Family Monastery.
    He has an agenda and produced and gave away many free DVDs.
    No on has figured out where he got the money to do this?

Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor but a destroyer."  St. Francis of Assisi

  • Bishop Fellay's letter to friends and benefactors.

    My mother and I got done reading it together, and when we got to the end of it, we were like,  :stare: "What is your actual point? When you write a letter, you should have an actual point in writing it."

    When I started reading Fr. Rostand's letter, my BS detector started going of right away. (I gave the packet to my mother, which included a letter from Fr. Rostand, several pages of what appeared to be some kind of catechism lesson from Bishop Fellay, a 2-3 CD set of "Resistance to What?" [lol] and a companion, of sorts, to Fr. Themann's "Resistance to What?". ) When I get the stuff back, I wrote notes there, so I will share my thoughts with you (which Fr. Rostand would probably say is sinful, but I'd like to remind Fr. Rostand that LYING IS ALSO A SIN [remember when you told us that the missal at the altar that you all were using was the same missal that Fr. Bolduc used when he had Mass? You lied. Yes, you did. You lied.] )

    When I read that companion (because I heard enough in the first 20 minutes of Fr. Themann's talk online before I even got it on CD to get so nauseated as to be forced to shut it off) with my mom, we got about halfway through it before she had to leave, but I wrote a ton of notes there, and I can't wait to discuss what my mom finds in the rest of it with her, and then come here and share it all with you all.

    Anyway, the reasoning there is so flawed, I wonder what kind of philosophy class he really took, because I've never heard of "speculative truth." I mean, here's the definition of 'speculative."

    Speculative.

    1: involving, based on, or constituting intellectual speculation; also : theoretical rather than demonstrable <speculative knowledge>

    2: marked by questioning curiosity <gave him a speculative glance>

    3: of, relating to, or being a financial speculation <speculative stocks> <speculative venture>

    synonyms: notional - theoretical

    These seem to be contradictory terms. A speculative truth? Um... yeah. No. This is not something Saint Thomas Aquinas would have ascribed to.

    If something is true, then it either is true, or it's NOT true. Ugh. Anyway, later I'll comment on more of it.

    OH I ALMOST FORGOT! Of course, there was an envelop to donate. And on the front of the big white manilla envelop, It said "THE SSPX, FALSELY ACCUSED."

    I loled.
    Matthew 5:37

    But let your speech be yea, yea: no, no: and that which is over and above these, is of evil.

    I'd get out a red Sharpie and do this:



             RESISTANCE
    "THE SSPX,/ FALSELY ACCUSED."


    Inside, I'd put a note:

    TWIMC:  Please know the megabucks reserved for the winner
    goes to the winner, not the loser, and you're the latter.  
    The winner is a lot of competition: St. Marcel Initiative; OLMC
    Church, Boston KY; The Recusant; St. Joseph Protector of the
    Church (www.sacrificium.org); St. Joseph Carmel, Brilon-Wald;
    Dom Tomás de Aquino, Nova Friburgo, Brazil; and an undisclosed
    Resistance supporter who needs the money a lot more than
    you do, since you'll just waste it on destroying the Society.




    Can you imagine their reaction when half the envelopes are
    coming in like that?  

    If their jaw drops, then they'll know how Fr. Girouard felt.  
    But probably not, actually!                  HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  • The day after I received the packet I gave it to Fr. Hewko. I am eager to hear what he has to say about it.

    I too laughed out loud when I read the outside envelope (SSPX Falsely Accused).

    One good thing about the packet, however. I am now reminded to take our family off the SSPX mailing list.

  • Got my packet at catechism after Mass on Sun. First time I ever heard anyone even mention the resistance. Cheerfully told us that God burned  Fr. Pfieffer's house down because of his disobedience. Wow.

    That is a sick remark!

    Disobedience to the cult of Bishop Fellay?  For sure!

    Rather, it is God who will burn a soul in hell who is "disobedient" to the Faith -Period.
