Cardinal Raymond Burke and others have publicized their requests to Pope Francis regarding his heretical document Amoris Laetitia. Similarly, we submit the following:

Dubia Question: Can we read the writings and the transcribed sermons and interviews of the Archbishop and understand his mind and assessment of the Second Vatican Council and the crisis in the Church?

SSPX Response circa 2003: Yes

SSPX Response circa 2016: No. Such things are not black and white. We are called to discern, with prudence.

Dubia Question: Did the writings, sermons, and interviews of the Archbishop demonstrate a clarity and consistency of thought regarding Modernist Rome which can guide our actions and navigate us even after his death?

SSPX Response circa 2003: Yes

SSPX Response circa 2016: No. Such things are not black and white. We are called to discern, with prudence.

Dubia Question: Does the Society leadership still believe in the 1988 declaration that states: “we have never wished to belong to this system which calls itself the Conciliar Church,” and do they still believe the part of that declaration that says to be excommunicated from the Conciliar Church “would be for us a mark of honor and a sign of orthodoxy before the faithful”?

SSPX Response circa 2003: Yes

SSPX Response circa 2016: No. Such things are not black and white. We are called to discern, with prudence.

Dubia Question: Does the Society take its stance towards Rome from the entire life of Archbishop Lefebvre, including the words he imparted to his priests at the ’88 consecrations and afterwards in various interviews and in his book Spiritual Journey?

SSPX Response circa 2003: Yes

SSPX Response circa 2016: No. Such things are not black and white. We are called to discern, with prudence.
