SSPX Funeral and baptism

  • Recently I went to both a funeral mass and a baptism at the SSPX. I haven’t been to one at the SSPX in many years. My Father’s funeral mass, about 3 years ago, was by the SSPV and Father Collins baptized my daughter not too long ago. 

    My questions: Don’t the rubrics call for the prayers, before the coffin enters the church, to be spoken in Latin? Also, aren’t most of the prayers, at a baptism, in Latin? I’m fairly certain I’m right about this, but I want confirmation. (Pardon the pun) The ironic thing is is that I would have called Father Collins about this question, he was extremely knowledgeable about the mass and ceremonial rubrics.

    At the SSPX funeral, the prayers were in English and at the baptism, many of the prayers were also in English.

  • Funny story about that:

    One of my sons was baptized in an SSPX chapel, and the priest read certain parts in English, and repeatedly interjected commentary on the symbolism of the rubrics.

    An indult couple attending who were friends of ours, I later found out, were very upset by this because they felt the priest was being condescending by doing this (whereas the prayers at their indult chapel were completely in Latin).

    They misunderstood, of course: The priest thought he was just being pastoral.

    But the irony was that this pastoralism ended up giving offense.
    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-

  • All the SSPX Baptisms I have been to contained commentary and prayers were both in Latin and English (some more and some less, depending on the Priests) Bu tall had commentary throughout the ceremony.
