    This is NOT FAIR.  

    I still have 9 pages to go on #12 and here you are with #14 already.

    More good stuff!  (surprise, surprise!) I tell you guys who aren't reading TheRecusant:  If you haven't figured it out yet, you're going to have a TRUCKLOAD of backtracking to do.  14 x 36 = 500 pages



    quote:

    We Still Say: Boycott Bishop Fellay’s Cynical and Offensive “Rosary Crusade”!

    Our call to boycott Bishop Fellay’s latest “Rosary Crusade,” with its dubious intentions, certainly stirred responses of varying types in various quarters. A number of people, it seems, felt the same way and it is nice to know that one is not alone, that others too felt decidedly uneasy on reading Bp. Fellay’s most recent Letter to Friends and Benefactors for the first time. We also seem to have provoked another, quite different response in other quarters.

    Amongst the messages sent to The Recusant email address, were the following:

    
    “What kind of sick people are you?? I've never heard of Bishop Williamson calling for prayers - maybe he is too proud to call on the Mother of God.or maybe he's too wrapped up in his conspirisy [sic] theories to have any humility.”

    
    “You lack charity. Why do you call for a boycott of the Holy Rosary? That is particularly nasty.”

    
    “You go to the SSPX churches and give verbal abuse to the priests that is pretty vitriolic and uncharitable.”

    What can one say? Do we? Is it!? ‘Boycotting the Holy Rosary,’ indeed?! So now the Rosary Crusade is the same as the Rosary and vice versa? Where does one begin to reply adequately to such criticisms? Is it even worth anyone’s time attempting to reply? From experience, I fear the answer may be, sadly, not... We did try replying to one such message. To the (thankfully, slightly more literate) lady who wrote asking:

    
    “Why do you call for a boycott of the SSPX Rosary Crusade? Surely if you are no longer with the SSPX it shouldn't bother you what they do?”

    ...I wrote the following reply:

    “No longer with the SSPX” is an inaccurate and potentially misleading way of putting it, because it throws the emphasis onto us and rather makes it sound as though the SSPX is a fixed reality. You make it sound as though we’ve decided that Archbishop Lefebvre got it wrong, and become sedevacantists or indulterers. The fact is, we haven't changed our position, whereas Bishop Fellay and his confederates have.

    “Furthermore, and by way of answering your question directly: Why do we oppose it? Because it is wrong, because it is a public wrong, and one being perpetrated on a large scale and across the world. If it is at all within the power of any of us to lessen the offence to Almighty God, then we are duty bound to try. It would be a poor excuse simply to shrug and say “Nothing to do with me!” - even if it was nothing to do with us! As it happens, however, it is very much something to do with us. The reason why increasing numbers of priests and laity are departing from the SSPX is precisely because the bond of trust has been broken. There are good, credible reasons why one can no longer trust the organisation of which Bp. Fellay is the Superior. And a big part of that is the way in which the Rosary Crusades were used to try to psychologically prepare the faithful for a sell-out to the modernists in Rome. The wickedness and cynicism of this cannot be overstated.

    “The faithful of the Resistance may exteriorly, and in a superficial way, have ‘nothing to do with the SSPX’ but we are the people who until recently were the backbone of the SSPX, the heart of the apostolate. The people who made the tea after Mass, the sacristans, the people who cleaned the church, who volunteered as catechists, ran the choir, started up groups and ran associations for Catholic action... Bishop Fellay and his plotters and schemers have stolen our birth right from us. It has everything to do with us. It is Bishop Fellay and his new, bogus, fraudulent, fake-SSPX that we want nothing to do with. The SSPX which Archbishop Lefebvre founded lives on. It is the
    Resistance.

    “God bless,

    “Editor.”
     
    ...Which earned a reply of four words:

    “You sound very bitter.”


    We must just hope and pray that this is not typical of what is or will be the laity who still support the SSPX once Bishop Fellay’s madness has run its course!



    [If she were German, perhaps she meant you sound very please(d) ("bitte").] :confused1:

  • How many issues of the recusant have there been? Is this the thirteenth?

    Unlucky then, as this is the first edition that this forum's URL has been omitted from the "Some Useful Websites" section. No doubt because this forum's owner sensibly refused to to support the Recusant editor's if you can't get to a resistance Mass stay at home agenda.

    That was a joke.  HAHAHA  (See, I can laugh at my own jokes!  But it wasn't as funny as the penultimate one............. e.g., 14 ≠ 13  HAHAHAHAHAHAHA)

    If twelve is an issue then it is not a suplement. If it is a supplement then it is not an issue. There are thirteen issues of the recusant, you have again proved my point, Neil.

    Why the omition from the recusant of the www.cathinfo.com URL, Neil????

  • One either resists or one does not. 'Internal Resistance' is a contradiction in a sea of SSPX-style contradictions. Long ago I was struck by the conflicting attitudes, actions and philosophies that were there if you looked hard enough. Perhaps it saw itself as the old church in miniature which behaved as though she were immune from contradition. My father was a big believer in the 'straight and narrow' which makes me wonder why he put up with the new church for so long!

    Yes a dose of reality and honesty is what is needed. Some inside may be disgruntled but not to the point of resistance. Otherwise they would be out and external.

    If they can live with the contradictions and yet remain inside, then that is what they are doing, not resisting.

    Straight and Narrow today is for the imprudent who cannot negotiate nuances of replicated Tradition.
