TRADCATs, are we not playing into the enemies hands when we pay inordinate attention to the obvious infiltration of SSPX by the enemies of the Church? We all morn to see what others either don't see or do not want to see, likely for much of the reasons already expressed in this discussion (sentimentality). However, I pray that we march on with Our Lady under the banner of Christ the King for which I know Archbishop Lefebvre would ask of us - keep the Faith of all times, penance-fasting-prayer, help in charity, prepare to suffer even greater possibly even to martyrdom.
True RESISTANCE is continuing in Tradition and RESIST TO THE FACE the heretical errors of the Novus Disordered Church and the Judeo-Masonry revolution from Hell. Stop and think why Our Lord is allowing this to happen - Duhh, our sins maybe? Are not True Trads to continue the path set forth by Archbishop Lefebvre regardless the direction Bishop Fellay and followers have decided to take?
What is happening to the Church is as prophesied by Our Lady of Quito, La Salette, Fatima. Is not Our Lord allowing us to be reduced so that the glory of Our Lady's triumph and the Church will be all Her and not even attributed to the fidelity of any Catholic order such as SSPX?
A sign that what is happening to SSPX is Masonic is the shadow of the same recipe the Masons used leading up to the Vatican II revolt as revealed by the Alta Vendita, quote, "It is to the youth we must go, it is that which we must seduce; it is that which we must bring under the banner of the secret societies.” Just as the late 19th and 20th century clergy were duped by the poison of freemasonic principles so has SSPX, with the intent not to destroy the structure but to empty it of its Divine content - behold neo-SSPX with the teeth of chickens.
We certainly want to continue to pray, Oh and yes, for Bishop Fellay as well, that many of the faithful and priests of SSPX wake up to return on course of the founder of SSPX, namely, THE CROSS. Strongly recommend reading Friends of the Cross by St. Louis De Montfort again.
OUR MANDATE [Declaration of November 21, 1974]
We hold firmly with all our heart and with all our mind to Catholic Rome, Guardian of the Catholic Faith and of the traditions necessary to the maintenance of this faith, to the eternal Rome, mistress of wisdom and truth.
We refuse on the other hand, and have always refused, to follow the Rome of Neo-Modernist and Neo-Protestant tendencies, which became clearly manifest during the Second Vatican Council, and after the Council, in all the reforms which issued from it.
No authority, not even the highest in the hierarchy, can compel us to abandon or to diminish our Catholic Faith, so clearly expressed and professed by the Church's Magisterium for nineteen centuries.
That is why we hold firmly to everything that has been consistently taught and practiced by the Church (and codified in books published before the Modernist influence of the Council) concerning faith, morals, divine worship, catechetics, priestly formation, and the institution of the Church, until such time as the true light of tradition dissipates the gloom which obscures the sky of the eternal Rome.
VIVAT CHRISTUS REX,
