Sean Johnson's book - 101 SSPX changes CCCC thread - NEW RELEASE!

  • The SSPX has changed!

    The SSPX is heading for a full merger with the Modernist Rome of Vatican II, and it's already most of the way there -- formal deal or no! The facts don't lie. Countless changes, compromises, and contradictions have already occurred within the SSPX -- past tense. This isn't about what the SSPX might do; it's about what THE SSPX HAS DONE over the past 7 years. Here is a book (almost 400 pages) detailing the documented, hard evidence to prove this assertion. This book will convince you that the SSPX has taken a hard U-turn back to Conciliar Modernist Rome!

    https://www.chantcd.com/index.php/As-We-Are-101-Compromises-Changes-Contradictions-of-an-SSPX

    The material is substantially taken from the highly popular CCCC thread:

    cathinfo.com/c.htm

    But the book has much more value than the above thread. The formatting alone is worth the price of the book.


    Q: Why did you write the book anonymously?
    A: I wanted the book to have broad appeal, and as I am known to support a specific side of the Resistance, did not want that to overshadow or color receptivity to it from people who do not share my positions, particularly as this book does not enter into those questions which divide us.

    Q: Why bother to publish the book, when the thread is on Cathinfo for free?
    A: The book was designed to reach people who do not frequent the internet.  Additionally, even for those who do, the book version has been extensively fortified with a table of contents, a preface written by me explaining motivations, a foreword by Fr. Edward MacDonald, an Introduction by Bishop Williamson, a professional layout, a 10 page index of names, and 2 appendices. (Editor note: even among those who do use the Internet, there are some who won't set foot on CathInfo and/or any Traditional Catholic forum, for various reasons. And even among those who do frequent CathInfo, there are some who prefer an old-fashioned book for long reading and deep subjects.)

    Q: Where will the book be sold?
    A: Matthew (via ChantCD.com) will be one major distributor. Fr. Edward MacDonald will also have a limited supply to distribute throughout his apostolate.

  • Since I am receiving emails from Cathinfo members on this point, I will clarify:

    Yes, I am/was "X" and authored the CCCC thread.
    Romans 5:20 "But where sin increased, grace abounded all the more."

    -I retract any and all statements I have made that are incongruent with the True Faith, and apologize for ever having made them-

  • What's "anonymous" about the book?

    Hi Clare-

    Sorry for the confusion: The book is not anonymous, but the compilation of some of its contents (ie., the CCCC thread which I wrote under the pseudonym “X”) was, for the reason given in Matthew’s OP.

  • We ordered from Matthew already. I am looking forward to reading it! I will be ordering for my family as well. They have very little internet so all they hear is what the SSPX priests tell them, which is nothing. It will be good for them to have something more tangible than just my word or "hearsay" from CI. They are sympathetic to the Resistance based on a couple of concerning trends they have seen over the past 10 years but in terms of knowing what practical changes are taking place they are looking forward to this book. Thank you Sean and all who have had a part in putting it together!

    Thank you for helping the cause!

    Yes, I think there are MANY Trads that either don't go online, or don't make use of Traditional Catholic forums. I think this book version is going to do a lot of good.

    I'm pretty excited about it, just as I was about the CCCC thread itself. That thread is in the top 2.5% of Resistance threads of all time -- even though many of the Resistance threads pre-date the new software (2015?), and in the old forum software the view-count could be inflated by the same person hitting <F5> to refresh a bunch of times. So it's a bit of an unfair contest. If those older threads had been born and raised in the new CathInfo forum software, their view count would be lower.

    But even with all it's popularity, the CCCC thread is limited in reach to those who frequent Trad forums, and those who do a lot of browsing and reading online. That misses a huge swath of Trads who are offline, or "aloof" from Catholic social media for various reasons.

  • I'm someone who as attended SSPX chapels (St. Vincent's in KCMO and was married 21 years ago TODAY in St. Mary's) for 28 years,  can honestly say EVERYTHING in bot the thread and this book when it arrives will be much needed help in ringing the bells "the modernists are at the gates! get your guns grab some rope!

    Now something I can give to my wife that she can take the time to digest rather tan trying to explain long complicated threads she has no interest in trying to digest.  She tends to trust me but I'd like her to have something like this she can take her time with so she can feel assured.  I am real close to red-lighting SSPX but mass opptions are few here.  I won't attend FSSP nor ICKSP as their priests are doubtful, which is where the SSPX is trying to get anyway.  

    I've become soft Sede-Vacante but SSPV is 3+ hours away and as of now I'm not sure about CMRI in Topeka.  Any suggestions?  Looking forward to this books arrival.

  • Just wanted to mention some additional information:

    1) Mr. Hugh Akins’ Catholic Action Resource Center will also be distributing the book soon at ca-rc.com (you will be able to find it there in a few days).

    Obviously, this is Matthew’s forum, and he is doing all the hard marketing, so I Hope CI users/members who are considering a purchase will make him the first choice.

    2) For those who object to purchasing from both CI and Mr. Akins, the book will also soon be available from Amazon.com (link to come when setup is finalized).

    Note that Amazon may have constrained inventory, as I will borrowing from the inventory I originally thought to sell through them to replenish Matthew (and Mr. Akins, if need be);

    3) Fr. Edward MacDonald will also have 25 copies to distribute, so if you are a faithful of one of his Mass sites, he may be another source (note that Fr. MacDonald will not receive his copies for another 2 weeks +/-, because of shipping);

    4) An ebook will soon be available from Matthew’s website (as well as the forthcoming Amazon site) for $9.99.

    5) Initial reports indicate that I may have greatly underestimated demand, as in addition to multiple requests to place bulk orders and become distributors, I also already received one request from a priest to buy large orders for his two chapels.

    Matthew sold through 50% of his initial allocation on the first day, and has yet to fill the priest’s order, in addition to forthcoming orders, making a second larger printing of the book likely/necessary (don’t worry: I will be taking from Amazon’s inventory to keep Matthew well stocked).

    Finally, it seems the offline trad market is very interested in the subject matter, and many are also buying the book for those who do not go online.

  • Yes, we all know.  You stormed off the forum after having denounced Matthew, saying you'd never come back, but then stealthily created the X account (after having posted in Anonymous for a while).

    Ladislaus-

    Could you please start a new thread to vent?

    This thread regards the book.

    I explained the reason for my anonymous authorship of the CCCC thread in the OP (which had the full knowledge and cooperation of Matthew from the beginning).

    This might be a silly detail but I want to qualify my wording and sentiments. The part we are looking forward to is having clarity in book form at our fingertips instead of trying to stare at a screen for hours. The subject matter itself is not joyful.

    Yes, since you are willing to consider Topeka, then if you drive a bit further to Emmet, you can attend Mass at St. Joseph's Mission in Emmett operated by Bishop Zendejas (SAJM). We will have Mass almost all Sundays for the rest of the year. Currently Fr. MacDonald is there now with Mass at 9 AM from now until Sunday.

    This is very encouraging news... Hopefully all the intended recipients will be as excited on reception of this book as those who wish to distribute it.
