Fr. McFarland is a nice priests, but like most of the nice young priests coming out of the SSPX seminary, they are not prepared for the combat that comes with a parish. Their experience has always been in the academic setting or other ordered settings (schools) where they are in charge of younger people (kids) or parish organizations (docile perishers). The SSPX should only put highly experienced priests in charge of a priory and then have the younger priests as assistants so they can experience without being fully in-charge. Plus it would help to visit mental hospitals, abused children or prisons to get accustomed dealing with people from different backgrounds and serious issues.
I would go one further.
I've heard good things about this or that priest who is part of the "new crop" of priests coming out of the American SSPX Seminary (formerly Winona, MN -- now in Virginia).
Nevertheless, their good will or personal holiness will be limited/challenged by the organization they belong to, the neo-SSPX. While it's true that there are "good priests" in the neo-SSPX, it's also equally true that the organization, as such, is compromised, fallen, and therefore evil.
Evil sounds like a strong word, but I can't think of any other word for an organization which is trying to bring Catholics to lay down their arms and stop fighting Vatican II like an ultimate evil, superheresy, which must be avoided AT ALL COSTS. That is how I was raised as as Trad. That's what the SSPX used to be about. Now they focus on the "positives" and all the good things within the Conciliar Church and Vatican II.
The old Traditional Catholic rallying cry was/is "Vatican II must be destroyed." Like the old Carthago delenda est.
The new SSPX rallying cry is "Vatican II isn't as bad as you think."
Vatican II is worse than you think. However bad you think Vatican II is -- it's actually worse.Three truths of Catholicism: You can't love God too much, you can't praise Our Blessed Mother too much, and you can't criticize Vatican II too much. I mean that literally and I'm dead serious.
