Downplaying differences

Not long ago Michael Matt of The Remnant Newspaper was one of the few remaining "Traditional" Catholic media outlets still warning about the nose dive being taken by the Neo-SSPX. Not always, but every so often, Matt would run an article or two about how the Society's reconciliation process with Pope Francis was a crazy…

With friends like these

The Rorate Caeli blog has been a long-time supporter of the SSPX's "regularization" process. On Wednesday, November 6, it announced that Jim Vogel and Brian McCall will be attending the 2020 Roman Forum next July. The event has been hosted by Dr. John Rao for decades. As far we know, this is the first time an official representative…

Only doctrine can “unite”

The much anticipated “Unite the clans” discussion between Michael Matt and Taylor Marshall (an FSSP supporter) has just concluded. Watch below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcMdpdBY2YQ Among other things, the pair discuss the need for “Traditionalists” to quit bickering with one another and turn their ire towards the pope. In essence, the SSPX, FSSP, ICKSP, etc. should “unite” around…

Sins of the tongue

Archbishop Lefebvre has been accused by those who did not know him of having been "bitter" over Vatican II. "He was too colored by the French Revolution," not a few neo-Catholic writers have said of His Excellency. "He couldn't understand the nuanced approach the Council took to the modern world. So he lashed out." Aside…

Contra Fellay?

Ecclesia Dei is no more. Most conciliar commentators have argued this is "no big deal" and that there's "no reason to panic," it's just a re-shuffling of the Vatican's bloated bureaucracy. Riiiight. Since when have things of this magnitude become a matter of just shrugging our shoulders and acting like nothing happened? Francis is a…

Rome is not Catholic!

There's an unfortunate video circulating on the internet showing former SSPX Superior General Bernard Fellay informing Catholics in the Philippines that Conciliar Church officials think the Society of St. Pius X "is Catholic." Ostensibly, this is a moment of joy for the Archbishop's Society. Finally, the stench of "schism" has been lifted! Rome is our…

An SSPX “Spring”?

Eight years ago something called the "Arab Spring" took place in the Middle East. Western media outlets reported to their blue-pilled viewers that "grassroots" uprisings of "oppressed peoples" were finally throwing off "the chains" of their "dictators" and, in the old American way, were transforming their "corrupt" countries into lands of liberty where government would…

Diabolical disorientation

Fr. Dominique Bourmaud, a priest of more than 35 years ordained by Abp. Lefebvre in 1981,  is the latest in a recently growing group of SSPX priests poorly attempting to find fault with the legitimate principles of the Resistance. In an article called “A Treacherous Dilemma,” posted in the Nov-Dec issue of The Angelus, we…

The danger of schism

The 2018 General Chapter is on the horizon, and accommodationists in the SSPX are making their strategic moves now as opposed to waiting until the actual gathering in July to influence the outcome in their favor. Rumor has it that Bp. Fellay either doesn’t want to be re-elected or would turn down a nomination if…

The real Archbishop?

Fr. Paul Robinson has written yet another incoherent defense of the Fellay regime’s policy of rapprochement with the Conciliar Church. Chock full of logical fallacies and venom towards priests who have — no doubt after much prayer — departed the increasingly tyrannical SSPX, Fr. Robinson’s article is a reflection of the fact that the Society…
