Are you really criticizing the money handling of the OLS community after all the threads that have popped up in recent weeks regarding the embezzlement accusations of resistance chapels?
1. It's Matthew with 2 T's, like the Evangelist.
2. Embezzlement of resistance chapels? I don't know what the heck you're talking about.
3. Am I? You bet, sir. The only thing you can point to is a loan dispute between Fr. Voigt and Pablo. But even if there were some wrongdoing involved there, "Two wrongs don't make a right". And besides, I'm not a supporter of Fr. Pfeiffer or his group (Our Lady of Mount Carmel, or SSPX Marian Corps) anyhow, so I'm not even being hypocritical here. The Resistance is many times larger than Fr. Pfeiffer's small group of 2 priests.
A group as large and professional as the neo-SSPX (tm) doesn't do anything randomly or by accident.
Before this year, it was unheard of for the San Antonio chapel to be serviced by a priory outside of Texas, like we're some kind of backwoods Alaskan mission or something. The San Antonio chapel has about 200 - 250 parishioners. And we have a priory less than 4 hour drive from here, in Dickinson, TX (right outside Houston).
Just look on the map at how close Houston is (a few inches to the right), and how far away Phoenix is. Convenience has NOTHING to do with it. It's much more expensive (total) for them to fly a priest in every week, rather than drive a few hours. But for the Phoenix chapel, which is reimbursed, it is advantageous. The real losers in this deal are the parishioners at St. Joseph's Chapel in San Antonio. It's tough to save up money for the new chapel they need when they're forking out money for unnecessary plane tickets every week.
In my opinion, they should give up on the SSPX as I have, and place their destiny back in God's (and their own) hands.
