Campos all over again

History is repeating itself. In the early 2000s, the Society of St. Pius X correctly argued that the priests of the Diocese of Campos were being re-molded, little by little, by the Conciliar Church. Now, in 2017, it is the Society that is slowly but surely being made anew. In his January 6, 2003 letter to…

The SSPX condemns the SSPX

The parallels between the Society of St. Pius X's “regularization” process and the “regularization” of Campos and other Ecclesia Dei groups are astounding.
