    Asking for prayers for a priest he knows who was found frozen in snow and tomorrow they are going to amputate both hands and feet.  They are praying for a miracle.   Father William Welsh and he is 67 yrs. Ex SSPX. 

    From the Mailbag.

  • I believe he was once SSPX district superior for New Zealand or Australia?

    Anyway, I met him once while I was still an indulterer at an ICK chapel in Rockford, IL in 2000.

    He was independent then, and had stopped by to explore the ICK, and evidently decided against it (or the ICK did).  Anyway, he had made a favorable impression on me because I was working my way out of the ICK, having recently read some books by Lefebvre and Fahey, while he himself was still speaking openly and favorably about Lefebvre, despite exploring a potential apostolate with the ICK (generally a no-no).

    He went out to his car and got a photo album and showed me many pics of Lefebvre which have never been published.  I am/was impressed that, despite living out of his car, he thought those photos important enough to keep.

    Anyway, very sorry to hear this news.

    Thanks for the insight, Sean.  He was living out of his car?  What a difficult life he had remaining faithful to Tradition.  Many chapels would have loved to have him and given him a place to live.

    Does anyone know how he ended up frozen like that?

    I think he ended up being a chaplain at Thomas A. Nelson’s private chapel at TAN Books (also located in Rockford, IL back then), but not sure for how long, or where he went after that.
    Yes, I also am wondering how he ended up frozen outside.  Sheesh.

    I bet that even today many priests of the SSPX have stayed put instead of joining the Resistance simply because they were afraid to strike out on their own not knowing where their next meal would come from or how they would be supported.  It's difficult to end up being a wanderer like that.  I did wander like that myself a few years, and I know it's a very uncomfortable place to be.
