  • BRIEF STATEMENT OF FR. DAVID HEWKO

    [FEBRUARY 2019]


    In the Acts of the Apostles (15:39), we find a dissension arose between the Apostles of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Sts. Paul and Barnabas, who had parted ways and continued spreading the Faith in different regions. Please permit me to draw a similar comparison, given this new situation.

    In 2015 A.D. Our Lady of Mount Carmel, in Boston, Kentucky (OLMC) had publicly disassociated from Ambrose Moran, and it should have rested there. But, contrary to the recent Statement of the “second disassociation” (January 23, 2019), rather than a “slow movement forward in this case,” he was hastily reintroduced by Fr. Joseph Pfeiffer with the conditional ordination of Fr. Poisson, in July 2018. Fr. Poisson had been previously ordained in 1996, by a bishop consecrated in the New Rite, making this first ordination doubtful. So now, poor Fr. Poisson has two doubtful ordinations, yet he continues to be sent out for Masses representing OLMC.

    The moral theology of the Church insists that we are not allowed to be “probabiliorists” with the sacraments, but always take the safest side ensuring validity and legitimacy, that is, the “tutiorist” position. Since the recent Statement of Disassociation also admits not having sufficient proof of the “necessary certificates and real clear authentication” of Ambrose Moran, this merely confirms the doubts of both: this “bishop” and the conditional ordination of Fr. Poisson. Nothing demeaning to the good character of Fr. Poisson, but the fact is, he still must be conditionally ordained by a traditional Catholic bishop, without any doubts!

    Furthermore, should the papers proving the validity of Ambrose Moran ever happen to appear, in spite of this, his active participation with the schismatic Orthodox in liturgical ceremonies, the confusion and doubts surrounding his records, photos, documents, (which in normal times would be examined and cleared by the proper authorities of the Church) all dictate, by supernatural prudence, to avoid association with him. Besides, a baptized Catholic seeking holy orders from schismatics incurs suspension, according to Canon Law, and forfeits the right of administering the sacraments, if it happened to be done “in good faith” (c. 2372). Given our present situation, we priests are in no position to rehabilitate such a person. This recent reintroduction and aggressive promotion of Moran has been the cause of much confusion, bad fruits, and scandal to the Faith of clergy and the faithful.

    The second reason for my departure from OLMC is the amount of power given to a layman helping with material concerns, admittedly, and this is much appreciated. But, let it suffice to say, that his self-imposed title of “Chief in Charge” is, by no means, an empty one! Were his influence restrained and his videos (publicly representing OLMC) censored, his leverage would do far less damage to many, many souls. It’s because souls are driven away and harmed that obliges me to counteract this injustice.

    Lastly, all the negative impact the above reasons have had on the seminarians’ formation and my fruitless efforts to correct these negative effects, show me God’s Will is elsewhere. If any good-willing souls were harmed through all this, I beg pardon.

    My whole priesthood, apostolate and future are consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, all is in Her hands! With Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, I stand with the Catholic Resistance against the dissolving of the Faith infiltrating the entire Church and the Conciliar-SSPX by Modernism (cf. Pascendi, St. Pius X).

    The preaching of the integral Catholic Faith, the Mass of All Time, and the salvation of souls must continue. Even after a good pope fulfills Our Lady of Fatima’s demands for the Consecration of Russia, and Rome finally returns to Tradition along with the Virgin Mary’s prophesied Victory, this work must still continue! It is the ardent desire of the Sacred Heart of Jesus to save souls!

    On a practical note, my temporary address is:

    16 Dogwood Road South, Hubbardston, MA 01452

    Sermons, catechisms, Mass schedules, and conferences will be found on the YouTube channel: SSPXMarianCorps and thecatacombs.org. Any “scattered sheep” seeking the crumbs off the Master’s Table and desiring the Holy Mass, may contact me at: (315) 391-7575 or fr.d.hewko@gmail.com.

    Let us join forces, with the weapon of Our Lady’s Rosary and Scapular, praying for all! Please pray for me, and all priests so minded, to continue, with the grace of God, making our own the great Declaration of Archbishop Lefebvre of 1974, now more applicable then ever!

    Sincerely in Christ the King,
    Fr. David Hewko

  • I just wrote a letter to Fr. Hewko:


    Quote
    Dear Father Hewko,

    I still fondly remember the Masses you and/or Fr. Pfeiffer said at the chapel here outside San Antonio when we were just getting started. I also appreciate the pioneering efforts of Fr. Pfeiffer and yourself in getting the Resistance established. I still have fond memories of those "good old days" when I picked you up from the airport, talked with you at the potluck afterwards, etc.
     
    I and many others had been saddened to see your continued support for an organization that was increasingly losing its Catholic bearings and causing so much confusion and so many evils, especially among the fervent Catholics who wanted to stay faithful to Archbishop Lefebvre's position (a.k.a. the Resistance). So many Catholics had a high opinion of you as a priest; they honestly wondered aloud why you would continue to work for and defend such individuals as Fr. Pfeiffer and Pablo.
    Many of them, myself included, are giving their thanks to God upon hearing this news.

    As you might recall, I first began criticizing Fr. Pfeiffer in a measured fashion in 2014 right after Fr. P began attacking Bp. Williamson, Fr. Zendejas, etc. It was an easy decision, because I was taught to defend good and attack evil. I hadn't even met Fr. Zendejas at the time (except perhaps when I handed him a case of Priest Meeting tapes back in 2003 when I was head of the Audio Department at S.T.A.S., but I digress) But my criticisms of Fr. Pfeiffer and OLMC were A) restricted to what was necessary, B) concerning grave matters affecting the Faith and the Traditional Catholic remnant, and C) always within the bounds of Catholic charity. As the owner of CathInfo, I made sure that my own posts and those of others met these standards of morality.

    Hopefully you can reconsider your opinion of CathInfo, which is not just a single soul (which can be good, evil or in-between) but rather a large gathering of hundreds of Traditional Catholics, the largest such forum on the Internet and officially pro-Resistance. The vast majority of CathInfo members are of good will, seeking to keep the Faith and save their immortal souls. The reason I ask you to reconsider your opinion is because you have expressed the official "party line" regarding CathInfo in several of your recorded sermons in the past. What can I do besides take you at your word?

    As for the past, I am quick to forgive. I'm a nobody, held up only by God's grace, so I'm not concerned about anything said against me personally in the past; However, truth, justice, and charity require me to be concerned about the good name and reputation of the hundreds of devout Catholics who frequent CathInfo.

    I speak for many when I say this is good news, and I believe this new development can only help the situation of Traditional Catholics in America, specifically in the Resistance. The only question is how much good will be done, and how far the good effects will spread. We're in for a long, drawn out battle, so the more charity and unity we can foster and maintain, the better.

    In Christo,
    Matthew M

  • And the position of Fr. Hewko vis-a-vis the four Resistance bishops?

    What about the doctrine of “valid but graceless” sacraments?

    Etc.

    A position statement would be helpful.

  • I think extracting himself from OLMC (praise God!) is a MAJOR step.   There are other things that need to be said/addressed/dealt with, but for now, I think Fr. Hewko needs some space and time to work through things.  I know I would need it if I were in his shoes.

  • His departure is predicated on the notion that he considers Novus Ordo Holy Orders (not sure if the Rite of Ordination or Consecration or both) to be doubtful ... whereas the SSPX has gone the other way on that.

    I thought of this too. I heartily agree.

    There are many things to fix, mop up, clarify, etc. but let's not overwhelm the man. He's taken the biggest, most important step. Let's give him a bit of space and time to heal. I'm sure he'll think of much of this on his own in the near future.

    As the saying goes, "A word to the wise is sufficient."

    He has mentioned CathInfo (directly or indirectly) in sermon(s) in the past. He was just following orders, being a good trooper, etc. but like I said: I can only take a person's words at face value.

    We all know what the official OLMC position is re: CathInfo.
    The worst of them think we eat babies. Well, maybe not quite -- but close. I don't remember exactly what Fr. Hewko said about CathInfo in his sermons; it's been a while. I just remember it was negative.

  • Deo Gratias!   :applause:   So glad to see Fr. Hewko's spine has been restored.   There remains, however, a lot more reparation to be done.   While Fr. Hewko may not have been the instigator of the many faults at OLMC, he nevertheless supported them.   There are many damaged, scandalized, and wounded souls left struggling in the wake or already gone down beneath the waves.  I, for one, will not be rushing to Massachusetts any time soon.  (Too far away, anyhow.)

  • Perhaps, (at last?) Fr. Hewko can shed some real and substantial light on the strange, to say the least, (and mysterious?) relation/bond between Pablo and Fr. Pfeiffer and perhaps some real and substantial suggestion(s), in addition to prayer, as to how this relation/bond can be broken.

    It will be interesting to see the public reaction/spin of Pfeifferville to the departure of Fr. Hewko!

  • Father Hewko's departure from the pablo/Pfeiffer cult is a great relief.  Deo gratias!



    However, we cannot suddenly forget that he was under the occult influence of Paul Hernandez and his dupe, Father Pfeiffer for seven years.  Over those years, the lay exorcist Hernandez, persistently revealed his desire to gain control and/or destroy traditionalists to the best of his abilities.  



    Somehow, Father Hewko could not see or understand this.  It is our duty to ask why?

    In prudence, Father needs a thorough debriefing and re-formation by qualified religious.  
    Perhaps this task could be done by one or more of the Resistance bishops, before he can be entrusted with souls again.

    "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

  • So he’s lost Moran and Fr. Hewko. What will Fr Pfeiffer do now?
