  • Fighting talk. The editorial urges the UK district to come off the fence and declare its position. It is under no illusion that the Society will deteriorate further and anticipates an imminent purge by top management. And so it seems to be giving notice that the district is approaching the red light as far as providing alternative venues for Mass in the style of Fr. Pfeiffer and an end to SSPX sentimentality.

    (From an old German Prototype)
    "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

  • This is where to find out the state of affairs worldwide if you haven't
    been paying much attention lately at your local SSPX chapel.  After
    a brief introduction, on page 2 The Recusant gets into the thick of it:


    "What will become of our SSPX? Well, I am no prophet, but all the
    indications are that current trends will continue uninterrupted. The
    corruption of sound teaching, the watering-down of the doctrinal
    stand; the holding back of priests who are too combative and the
    promoting of priests who are unimaginative, uninspiring company
    men; the slow transformation of the SSPX into a more politically
    correct, ‘media-friendly image’; the promotion of top-down
    corporate policy which must be followed unquestioningly and the
    suppressing of any type of local initiative where the corporate HQ
    feels threatened because it does not have total control; the
    continued agony of silence by so many good priests who are afraid
    of being “found out” or denounced, KGB-style, the majority of them
    maintaining a silence in the face of injustice and error, with one or
    two being thrown out every once in a while; the slow, painful and
    tragic bleeding of good souls out of the SSPX, the dedicated
    stalwarts, the devout, with congregations being thinned not only in
    terms of numbers, but more importantly weakened in quality and
    fervour - all these things will continue steadily until the SSPX has
    become virtually indistinguishable from the FSSP."



    All these things will continue steadily until the SSPS has become
    virtually indistinguishable from the FSSP!  I dare say, there will come
    a day, and it might not be far off, when you won't have to do much
    talking when someone asks you this question:  What has become of
    our SSPX?  What happened?  All you'll have to do is hand them a
    copy of an old issue of this newsletter, and say, "I offered this to you
    a year ago and you were not interested."  For in a few short months,
    it will have been a year already since this fledgeling print shop got
    started, a real grass roots phenomenon, without lots of funding to
    make a big market share media splash or anything like that.



    Sometimes, the way The Recusant ends its paragraphs hits the
    core message of the whole very squarely:


    "But things cannot and will not continue like this forever.  Sooner or
    later we will discover that we have a new District Superior, a new
    prior, a new priest who says Mass at our chapel, and either that we
    are no longer welcome, or that we are being fed a slow, subtle poison,
    and that consequently it is time for us to flee to safety."
    ...
    "In one sense we do not want to lead Providence, yet at the same time
    the sooner we start thinking about starting over, the sooner the task of
    rebuilding can begin."



    I don't know about you, but as a native American, the writing style
    of this British Catholic is like a breath of fresh air to me.  He speaks,
    or rather, writes, in a manner that hearkens back to the roots of our
    language, a place where we have forgotten we came from, and when  
    you pair that up with is staunch sensus catholicus, it is just about as
    close to heaven, as you'll find picking up something to read can be.

    The next paragraph nails the topic.  It begins:


    "And in case any of our readers baulk at the thought of totally
    abandoning ship, let them consider this. Bishop Fellay has another
    five remaining years in office, and by the time he retires from his post,
    it is as good as certain that he will be replaced by someone equally as
    bad if not worse. Apart from anything else, how many good, solid
    priests will even be left in the SSPX by then, let alone on the General
    Chapter? As the three French priests recently identified as being behind
    ‘La Sapiniere’ are well aware, “justice” at the hands of Menzingen
    involves being given a trial at which Bishop Fellay serves as witness,
    prosecutor, judge and jury. And there is no court of appeal. This is
    the SSPX in 2013. It was a small lifeboat for many years, but we must
    not be sentimental about the SSPX. It has been silently taken over
    and subverted, much like the modern-day structures of the Church.
    It now serves a very different aim to the one given by its founder."





    Any Catholic who cares a whit about the SSPX or the state of Tradition
    in the world today should find himself obligated to read The Recusant.

  • On second thought, it doesn't quite look the same on an LCD screen
    as it does held in the hand.  I'd like to present an alternative view
    of that first hard-hitting paragraph.  It's just too packed with data.

    These are things that taken individually might overwhelm the average
    American SSPXer, but when they're all stuck together with semicolons,
    they would tend to go right over their heads like a cruise missile.  


    What will become of our SSPX?

    Well, I am no prophet, but all the indications are that
    current trends will continue uninterrupted.

    All the indications are these current trends will continue
    steadily until the SSPX has become virtually indistinguishable
    from the FSSP:


    ~  The corruption of sound teaching, the watering-down of the
    doctrinal stand;

    ~  The holding back of priests who are too combative and the
    promoting of priests who are unimaginative, uninspiring company
    men;

    ~  The slow transformation of the SSPX into a more politically
    correct, ‘media-friendly image’;

    ~  The promotion of top-down corporate policy which must be
    followed unquestioningly and the suppressing of any type of local
    initiative where the corporate HQ feels threatened because it does
    not have total control;

    ~  The continued agony of silence by so many good priests who
    are afraid of being “found out” or denounced, KGB-style, the
    majority of them maintaining a silence in the face of injustice and
    error, with one or two being thrown out every once in a while;

    ~  The slow, painful and tragic bleeding of good souls out of the
    SSPX, the dedicated stalwarts, the devout, with congregations
    being thinned not only in terms of numbers, but more importantly
    weakened in quality and fervour -

    All these things will continue steadily until the SSPX has become
    virtually indistinguishable from the FSSP.

    I'm telling you:  Print this out, and hand it to your friendly
    neighborhood Accordista, and watch his jaw drop.  For him, this is
    an attack under the radar!  He cannot and will not have seen this
    coming!  It's stealth tactics to his Menzingen-denizen mindset!  

    Typical of the contagion of Modernism, the carrier does not know
    that he is infected because one of the symptoms of the disease is
    ignorance of his own infection.  

    Let the truth be known.  We have been sold down the river.  No
    offense to the Danes, but something is rotten in Denmark.

    Yes, fighting talk indeed! And also that they are willing to help and support their priests when they do. No doubt they will need funds, may be that is what they're waiting for before they commit themselves.

    I would urge anyone in England to send what they can (it needn't just be money e.g. they will need vestments, offers of places to stay and celebrate Mass etc.). Their postal address is:

    P.O. Box 423
    Deal
    Kent
    ENGLAND

    Readers ought to realize that is the address for St. Marcel Initiative, which
    is headed currently by Bishop Williamson.  Although, until The Recusant
    achieves its own physical address, you can send them things to this address,
    only make sure you put the name "The Recusant" as the recipient.  I would
    suggest using "The Recusant C/O St. Marcel Initiative" because sometimes
    P.O. Box delivery is interrupted by the wrong name on the cover.  You don't
    want to find your letters or parcels returned as undeliverable!!

    The form given on p. 21 of last month's Recusant is:
    Quote

    www.StMarcelInitiative.com
    P.O. Box 423
    Deal CT14 4BF


    If mailing from the USA or elsewhere outside the UK, perhaps adding "England"
    or "UK" would help assure your parcel actually arrives there.






    Now, I'm American and I appreciate colloquialisms as much as the next
    guy, but "fighting talk" sounds a bit British to me.  Can you explain what
    you mean by that here?  I don't want to misunderstand you. In America
    we would say "Them are fightin' words" but that means an insult or a
    provocation to fight, when otherwise, without the words, no fight would
    be likely.  Is that what "fighting talk" means too?
