  • Look, with all the really important stuff we have to do: a practical agreement, done is secret preferably, with modernist Rome..expelling good priests who dare speak up...building unnecessary new seminaries when the majority of our parishes don't have elem schools..hiring a marketing co. to re-brand a softer image for us...denying people the sacraments if they work to correct the trend in the SSPX...With all that going on who has time for anything else?

    I am not saying that all those things are not important. I just want to know about the works of charity of the SSPX and their affiliated communities. Sometimes it doesn't take any money to be charitable.

  • In the UK there are a significant number of SSPXers and ex-SSPXers who run a soup kitchen for the homeless and distribute clothing, nex socks etc and generally spend time making the people feel loved and cared for.

    The people on the street, homeless, have drug, alcohol or mental health problems.  If you are simply down on your luck here, but focused and determined to improve yourself, the welfare state will house you, feed you, give you free education and all sorts of other leg ups.

    There is much more of a safety net here than in other countries.  Though they are making it slightly tougher.

    There is an orphanage with school in India and an annual free medical camp is held in the Philippines.  www.sspxasia.com may have more details if you are interested.

  • We are CMRI and in our church, God has made it possible for 2 families to bring in meats and canned goods and cereals and pastas.

    It is not an organization set up.  A butcher at a named store and the district allows to lower the price of meats at due dates and the day after at 75% off.  The family is blessed by God to be financially able to buy these meats and to drive them to the churches refrig/freezer.  The nun distributes it to the families who have need once a week.  So far this set-up of Gods has worked for 3 years.

    The other family, the wife is around a resturant and the husband finds canned goods and such at moving sales.  So, between the 2 families the needs of the church are met.  God did it, because the  families did not know it would work this way.  Looks like a smooth movement.  God is Generous!

  • The SSPX chapel in my town runs a food pantry and clothing closet and anyone in need can come in and get help.  They serve everyone in the community.

    There are numerous programs for parishoners, especially at Christmas.  Mostly gifts for needy children and food/cash for hungry families.  

    I'd like to also add that my Resistance group has been very generous with cash donations to the Resistance priests and providing food for others in the group who are strapped.  Sometimes a large family might come to a Resistance Mass and the children eat 3-4 helpings of food.  And we keep filling their plates until we run out.

  • Chapel has informal food pantry, clothing closet.  Is open to anyone after Mass.  Is run by a few people in parish, not officially by SSPX.
     St. Francis Xavier threw a Crucifix into the sea, at once calming the waves.  Upon reaching the shore, the Crucifix was returned to him by a crab with a curious cross pattern on its shell.

    A better safety net...It's even easier in Mexico in some ways...NSA whistleblower Jim Stone lives there now and talks about the country occasionally...Here in America when you're totally down and out ( homeless, no address ) your almost through..done..In Mexico the homeless will just build a shack out of concrete blocks..tin roof it and put a lock on the door ( out on some public land ) No one bothers them. The attitude is, " well, what else can he do..he's trying to get back on his feet.." Try doing that here...they'll demolish it as soon as the sun comes up.
    As for England, they have a National Health Svc..so at least a citizen still has health care...Yeah, I know, I can hear the objections now. There's always money for unnecessary wars ( and National Public Education bc indoctrination IS important ) but......
