  • My sentiments exactly.  
     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.

  • All bow down to the real leader of the Society St Pius X. The official leader of the Church of Bishop Fellay.

  • For whatever reason, when I type in 'sspx.org' I get the old site.

    When I click Sean's link, I get the new one.

    Wife found this gem of an article:

    Tradition, Ever Young, Ever New

    You're right Sean.  I want to puke.

  • Also, check out the schools link.

    There is not a single image that would give you the impression that these are Catholic schools.

    Because maybe they're not?

  • Quote from: Ethelred
    One additional word to the photos on Seraphim's first link. I already posted three from there.

    These are apparently test-pictures, probably by the company which created the Neo-SSPX' new website, together with some test-texts until everything is filled with own content. Probably the company is the one which The-Recusant above mentioned so:
    »... on the decision of the SSPX to hire a professional "PR company" to re-brand the Society (for which the SSPX paid good money!), helping it to leave behind it's "negative image" and be more "positive" about the Church.«

    Since Seraphim's linked website looks like a test sub-domain, these photos obviously don't represent the new Neo-SSPX website's final content. So, to make it clear again, I don't want to mislead anybody with these pictures. As said in my 1st post, these are obviously test-pictures.


    But these pictures are currently in this sub-domain of the new fsspx.net website and accessible worldwide, so why not take look at them, and above them the fancy new Neo-SSPX logo and new Neo-SSPX menu titles in Windows-8 style.
    These mostly psychedelic pictures which we know from other New World Order companies like Microsoft's Windows-8 and so on, well these pictures match so nicely the Neo-SSPX' new "company identity", that obviously there's some spooky but non-causal connection. These strange pictures seem to stand graphically for what the Neo-SSPX really stands for, in the sense of the famous proverb: A picture paints a thousand words.


    More nice photos from Seraphim's linked Neo-SSPX's sub-doman website (right-click in Firefox on them and use menu "show picture" to see picture in full size). The first picture really could stand for Krah's new fancy Neo-SSPX company car whilst he visits a Church in Menzingen (John Grace recently posted a photograph of Krah's real company car in Switzerland).

    You are here: Home > Media > photos







    Thank goodness we have Ethelred's computer expertise to explain the context of the neoSSPX's website imagery.

    If I had to guess, I'd say the pop photos are the idea of that hip judeo-trad, Max Krah.

    The following image is very reminiscent of Apple's iPod campaign three years ago. This "electric rock wonderland" message was posted on bill-boards all over California then.





    The calculated marketing message is this:  "Hook your mind up to an electronic device and release your pagan passions".










    I couldn't find it, but one of Apple's image had orange and red backgrounds which made the people in them look like they were rocking and screaming to their music in hell.





    "Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it underfoot and deny it. 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

  • You're all missing the best part of this new test site.  The link to Disney.com.

  • This is awful, looks waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to slick to be a website of a religious organization.  Very modernist.

    I'm quite offended they have turned the SSPX into a brand and a business.


    Yes, Remember in Fr. Rostand's "Christmas appeal", he said that he was going to "update" their image?  Well here it is:

    Quote
    "...Rest assured, dear faithful, that our commitment to combating Modernism in the Church remains rock solid!  The good news is that we have more opportunities than ever to influence the direction of the Church by educating those who are misinformed about the work and nature of the SSPX.

    One of our primary initiatives for 2013 is to continue to improve our public relations and media communications apostolate. You may have noticed over the past year that The Angelus and the Regina Coeli Report now have harmonized visual styles. The new website for the U.S. District will continue this move towards a common theme. This is important because it ties together the various media we use to communicate and presents a unified image.

    We're focusing on all means of communication, including newsletters, flyers, email, videos, press releases, granting more print and digital interviews and, of course, the Society's website, which serves as a beacon of timely news, information, and a repository of interesting articles. Our website averaged over 5,000 visitors each day in 2012! These visitors came to get information - to read and watch and listen to our reasons for holding fast to Tradition. Without our website, more than 5,000 people each day would be vulnerable to rumors and falsehoods spread by our detractors.

    Our attention to media has yielded other victories for us as well. One recent success was the Angelus Press interview series with me this summer which proved quite popular and aided us in setting the record straight regarding the discussions with Rome. These video interviews subsequently were linked to a number of Catholic and non-Catholic news organizations, which further spread our message and helped quiet the distracting din of rumors.

    Because the District Office invests in these programs, we operate under heavy financial constraints, and your support is vital to safeguarding our future. Since we do not operate chapels and schools directly, we rely on the support of voluntary donations sent directly to the District Office.

    This is why I am writing to ask you for your financial help this Christmas season."


    So let’s see their new “Traditional Catholic” image on their new sspx.org website:  http://www.sspx.org/

    In first appearance, I am struck to see the distracting MODERN art on the overlay of their homepage; yup, MODERN art overlays on a Traditional Catholic website; that’s some “updating”.  Seems to be in similar spirit of “updating” as like the new Cathedral in Fatima, or at Lourdes.  Is this updating also from that pagan PR firm that Fr. Rostand is ponying up to?  

    Instead of “distortions”, what happened to “attractions” with using something of the Beauty of God’s creation, or of our Lady, the Madonna, or any other traditional art?  Anything but Modern adaptions.  Who are they trying to attract by this?  And of what spirit are they trying to “kick” out of the door?

    So, Pagan PR firm - Updating - New Catholic image - Modern art - Need to go along to get along.

    Where have we heard that before?

  • Words fail me - it's so unbelievably bad.

    But even if it was just a secular firm, you'd know it was trash.

    But God is merciful. People can't say now they haven't been warned. Perhaps more priests (and laymen) will leave them after seeing this.

  • In this "new image" for the SSPX, I just noticed that the U.S District merged with the Canadian District -they now both have the same website- no more autonomy!

    Is this "new image to merge" anything like the international merging and updating to the North American Union, Nafta, one world order?

  • I worked in the software/web design biz for many years (retired now) and much of the style and layout of the new site is pretty standard in the CORPORATE world.  Even the page with the branding elements you would find on a typical coporate website.  I see what they are trying to accomplish--more unity of image and message.  Honestly, this site is way more professional than the Vatican website.  And the usability of the new site I would say is high quality.  

    Is that a bad thing?  Not in principle, as these concepts of message presentation are part of Catholic Action.  I guess the problem is the message content still remains ambiguous.

  • I really like the new website. And I think it's funny that the resisters tried to make it appear that the test images, etc. were from the real website. Come on guys, no one is fooled by that! :)

    Yet you do not elaborate on what exactly that is.
