SSPX and the Vatican....Another rumor


The following is snagged from a fellow blogger, my comments will follow:

"An Italian newspaper is once again reporting that reconciliation with the breakaway Society of St. Pius X is imminent. Il Giornale, in an article translated by the Rorate Caeli blog, said that will the re-election of Bishop Bernard Fellay to another 12-year term as head of the SSPX, he may be more amenable to an agreement.

It is possible that, in the past period, with the knowledge that his term was nearing its end, Fellay would have hesitated. Now, however, precise signals are expected in the Vatican. The terms of agreement include the acceptance of the theological agreement already agreed in 1988 by Archbishop Lefebvre and the then Cardinal Ratzinger, the lift of the excommunications decreed by the Holy See after the illegitimate ordination of four bishops by the same Lefebvre, and a canonical structure, similar to that of the military ordinariat, which allows the Fraternity Saint Pius X to preserve its seminaries and to incardinate [its own] priests.

Simultaneously to the agreement, the Holy See will announce a kind of liberalization of the pre-Conciliar Missal of Saint Pius V—a measure very much expected also by Traditionalists in communion with Rome.

Of course, back in the Spring, we had sources telling us that it was rock-solid certain that an agreement was coming, even within days, some even claiming it would take place during Holy Week. We saw how that turned out.

It would be nice if an agreement were reached, but I wonder how much of this is premature speculation; how much is journalists’ wishful-thinking."

Ok, now time for my comments:

This subject is very near and dear to my heart because I honestly do love the SSPX and would love for this issue to be over and done with. Archbishop Lefebvre was indeed dis-obiedient by ordaining bishops without the Holy See's ok however; had that not happened we Traditional Catholics would still be regarded as "behind the times old fogies." The old addage that God works in mysterious ways comes to my mind. Now, I am by no means saying that God wanted an act of defiance rather that, He has used this issue to bring to the forefront the needs of Traditional Catholics who want the True Faith, and nothing but the True Faith as has been passed down for 2000 years.

We all should pray for the Holy See and in a special way Bishop Fellay and the SSPX to end this division once and for all........

Exorcising the "Spirit of Vatican II"


We are all aware of the confusing, destructive, Modernist nature of the Second Vatican Council and the resulting Novus Ordo Mass that, while valid is full of banal, "Dumbed down" dialogue, ugly vestments, horrible music, little if any use of the language of Holy Mother Church (Latin), and yes....Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (read, Lay people desecrating the Blessed Sacrament with their unconsecrated hands.) In short, the so-called reforms were in fact revolution. Out with Tradition, out with beauty and reverence, goodbye nearly 2000 years of Church history to be replaced with Modernist ambiguity and the "Smoke of Satan." as His Holiness Pope Paul VI warned us.

How many times have we heard that wretched phrase, "The spirit of Vatican II." This so-called spirit seemed to have run rampant during the last 40 or so years however; the tide is changing and sincere Catholics everywhere are recognizing this spirit for what it is. so I say, join me in asking for the intercession of Pope St. Pius X and our Blessed Mother in restoring all things within Holy Mother Church to Christ and speak the words:

Excorcizo te, spiritus VATICANI II , Omis virtus adversarii, omnis exceritus diaboli, omnis incúrus, omne phatasma Satanæ eradicare!"



Today marks the begining of this blog. I've been asked by several people to get this up and running so, here it is.

I would like to dedicate this, and all my work to Mary Most Holy.......
