The incident where he refused the sacraments to a person... Clarification: there were 2 men and they had criticised and insulted publicly the SSPX and Fr Cardozo himself.Not true
. One of these faithful had written a comment in a forum criticizing the superior and he was not asked to publicly retract; instead he was punished by not allowing him to serve as an altar assistant. Then, several weeks later, other faithful wrote a comment asking for someone to lead the resistance against +Fellay and his accomplices and then both were called to publicly retract. They never offended nor insulted Fr. Cardozo, at least, not publicly.
He demanded, as was his right as a priest, that they publicly retracted their comments and insults. They refused to do so. He asked for the support of his Superior which he gave at firstNot true.
Fr. Cardozo decided to refuse the sacraments until a public retraction. He was asked to explain why telling the truth could be considered a sin, and Fr. Cardozo refused to answer.
Then, someone told Fr. Cardozo that one of these faithful had received sacraments in other of the SSPX chapels in a different city. Fr. Cardozo got mad and insulted the "rebels" from the pulpit.
An explanation in detailed was distributed in the chapel and published on the net by one of these faithful and then Fr. Trejo, the district superior, decided to refuse him the sacraments and even the right to attend the Holly Mass.
Fr. Cardozo went to Argentina for a little while and then he was assigned to Brazil, where he recently exhorted priests and faithful to stop Bishop Fellay selling out the SSPX.
The SSPX is in a mess. It was not a good idea for one man to be the Superior General for so long as he became a law unto himself. Power does corrupt, even when a person does not realise this is happening to him. M. Fellay needs our prayers as never before, that he have the courage to return to Mons Lefebvre's original plans for the Society.
Viva Cristo Rey!
I don't think it has something to do with time. Just look at how long Pius XII reigned as the Pope (which is much much more than a superior general). If power is going to corrupt someone, it will do it in few years or even few months. Again, it is not a matter of time.
