FSSPX News

One of the reasons I no longer give money to the Society of St. Pius X is that their leadership is drunk on liberalism. That and they don’t know how to use their resources. Take, for instance, Angelus Press. In the 1990s, Angelus was everything a Lefebvrist publishing house should be. Today, as a result…

Checkmate?

The Pope’s recent letter on SSPX marriages is deeply troubling. As is the Society’s response. Rather than quote it extensively, we will jump right into analyzing it. First, the letter makes it known at the outset that the Pope is motivated by a desire to “reassure the conscience of the” SSPX faithful about their marriages.…

The old SSPX and the new SSPX

The following is a fictionalized dialogue between two men. One represents the Society of old. The other the Society of 2017. No doubt many have heard conversations like this before: All this talk about “regularization” with Rome has me worried Why? I think it will help the Society How so? Well, for one, they are owed…

Resistance 101

I am opposed to any sort of deal between the Society of St. Pius X and the current authorities in Rome. I am opposed to a deal not because I don’t trust Pope Francis (although that is true, I do not trust the two-faced Francis). I am opposed to any deal with unconverted Rome on…

The author of the post, Stephanie Sarkis Ph.D., claims that "Anyone is susceptible to gaslighting, and it is a common…

Critical thinking

Generally speaking, people do not think for themselves. Often times they hear an argument made by someone in a position of authority and they simply follow along. It leaves them secure to go about their lives knowing that when it comes to certain areas of their existence there is a sense of tranquility. One might…

Bishop Fellay of 2004 vs. Bishop Fellay of 2017

Readers of this blog should know that it brings us no joy that this website exists. Indeed, we who contribute to Psalm 129 are nothing but obstinate sinners, deserving nothing but contempt. We take no pleasure in highlighting the contradictions and logical fallacies present in the remarks given by the current authorities of the Society of…

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…
