  • Does anyone know how many priests and religious the SSPX has lost to the Resistance ? Is there any score or register being kept ? I know Traditio has put up a list, but I don't trust them. I'd rather double check elsewhere..

  • Why not ask them for a current directory?

    There is a thread on Cite.catholique which has the statistics from last year. See if you can find the statistics from this year and compare it to last year.

    I was told about 82 total directly from the sspx have left or been expelled since 2012.  The number includes cloistered religious.  About 15 more will almost definitely be "purged" in the spring or summer.  That will make 100 of how many?  Bp. Fellay will no doubt be able to carry on  without them, but to what end?  He will be remembered as the bishop who sold out?  
     St. Francis Xavier threw a Crucifix into the sea, at once calming the waves.  Upon reaching the shore, the Crucifix was returned to him by a crab with a curious cross pattern on its shell.

  • The Society has always lost priests, that is why it took such a long time to pass the 500 mark. One would expect the new direction towards Rome would see changes in the type of candidate it is seeking. Also, I expect it has allowed for a continuing  trickle of existing priests leaving while the new programme bites, as well as making provision for those that need neutralising. This all has to be seen in the light of Menzingen reversing ABL's dramatic reaction to the new church  and wanting to blend in with those bodies on the fringes of the mainstream.

  • I saw Fr. Tim Pfeiffer's name on Traditio's list a couple of days ago.  Did he finally join his brother in the resistance?

    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...

    I care.

    I believe a lot of lukewarm people think of the Resistance as a bunch of celebrity priests, who became proud and disobedient. If we can show them that the number of priests is significant, they may realize that maybe there's more to the story and start investigating. Yes I know, it's not about numbers, but if we can use numbers to get people started, then why not.

    I wonder if some people in the Resistance are already starting to make the same mistake as those in the Novus Ordo and SSPX : "WE have found a comfy spot, WE are on the right track, don't worry about the rest, leave me alone."

    Obviously that was meant to be a bit of much needed humor. Please take my posts with a grain of salt.

    Of course I care about our priests.

    I glanced over that list and saw many errors. First off, there are priests on that list who were not even members of the SSPX. It is a bit disingenuous to include priests of having "abandoned" Bishop Fellay who never belonged to the SSPX in the first place. Also there are many factual errors. So apparently Fr. Cyprian from Brazil has "abandoned" Bp. Fellay. Ummm...okay. Also Fr. Stehlin is on the list....okay.

    My point is that NO ONE in the Trad world should take anything Traditio posts seriously. I am surprised people go to Traditio for news.

    I totally agreed. Having been duped by them regarding ordinations and safe places to go to mass, TWICE, coupled with their inaccurate "news," I don't see how anyone can patronize them in good conscience. Something I was involved in was reported by them once, while it was not in a bad light, the news story was completely inaccurate.

    No-- He has not. He is firmly within the clutches of the new thinking-- and , like all the priests of the Asian district under Fr. Couture, has been promoting the aggionamento with the conciliar religion for a long time. Many of them have never, basically, disagreed with the conciliar religion-- that's why they accept the pres-by-ters as  priests to work with them. Some are "insistent", to some degree, of some kind of a doctrinal resolution-- but they were firmly behind Ratzinger, and all his heresies; and are thus firmly behind Bergoglio, and all his antics-- even if they do  want to go slower, and retain the flavor of traditionalism.

      Thanks, Pooch, for that suggestion!

     Thanks, Cath Info, for the Shamrocks and the wearin' of the Green!. Maybe St. Patrick will smile tomorrow!

  • I find this "It's not about numbers" rhetoric a little hypocritical for the simple reason that if the resistance DID have the numbers they would be using the numbers as a justification.

    I have certainly heard sermons in the past where when a church is packed the priest will use this argument as a demonstration of success.  Equally, I have seen cartoons lampooning modernist churches with hardly any congregation.

    What's sauce for the goose ...

    Personally, I agree, that it shouldn't be about numbers but numbers is often used as a justification.
