To the 3rd Order Members of the SSPX....
There is no such thing as a third order without a first and second order. The SSPX is a pious union equivalent to the Children of Mary. It cannot possibly have a third order. The creation of this illegitimate third order obscures the true meaning of a real, traditional third order, which is a true religious order. The SSPX is not a religious order.
Do I have to give a quote to back this up? I don't mind.
You and many of your sedevacantist ilk are just jealous that the SSPX is a legitimate branch of the Catholic tree, approved by official Church authorities right at the beginning of the Catholic resistance to Vatican II.
The SSPX might be a mere pious union
in the scheme of things, but your chapel is completely unofficial and illegitimate.
your sede organization had been approved by legitimate agents of Christ's One True Church before things went sour.
So you can look down all you want -- I look down even more at your illegitimate sede organization.
It's one of the biggest reasons I attend the SSPX -- it's a lifeboat put there BY CHURCH AUTHORITIES by the same people that constructed the ship (the Catholic Church).
It's an interesting point seldom discussed by SSPX or sede Catholics.
