In Father Pfeiffer's sermon where he spoke about the consecration of Fr. Faure as a bishop he said that the SSPX had stated that they would not consecrate any new bishops that are not approved of by Rome. link (approx minute 25:54) Does anyone know where I can find that in writing? Was it a statement by Menzingen or quoted in a written article?
As Father rightly points out, that would mean the death of the SSPX.
It's more of a logical consequence.
The FACT is that the SSPX condemned the +Faure consecration -- a consecration that was IN EVERY MEASURABLE WAY identical to the 1988 consecrations. Done without the permission of Rome, because of necessity, intending to confer no jurisdiction, in public with plenty of witnesses, etc.
If they condemn such a consecration, emphasizing how the 1988 consecrations were a "special" or "one time thing" -- it follows that they won't be able to do the same thing next week, next year, or 5 years from now. They've tied their own hands.
So yes, in so many words they've committed themselves to two possible outcomes:
A) a deal with Rome, Rome's selection of one (compromised) bishop for the SSPX, etc. (crashing into the rocks)
B) annihilation (sinking to be bottom of the sea)
Either way, I want off of that boat
Like I said -- human hope for the SSPX is *long gone*
Prepare your alternatives now, while you still have time.
Remember, the FSSP might not have a bishop, but they at least have "union with Rome" so all those who feel they need to be approved by the Conciliar Church will patronize this group.
But the SSPX has no such permission. Any "outside the Conciliar structures" traditional group had better have its own bishop, or the group is doomed.
