I am going to keep the combox on moderation.
A site HERE is reporting rumor that…
I have been informed of an upcoming clandestine meeting of clerics who were recently expelled from the FSSPX. These priests were invited to leave the Society after the intrigue and disobedience surrounding their opposition to the Superior General of the FSSPX and his cautious willingness to engage the Roman authorities regarding the doctrinal issues which have kept — and continue to keep — the Society in a canonically irregular state within the Catholic Church. They denounced Superior General, Bishop Bernard Fellay, as a traitor to the memory and mission of the Society’s founder, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, for +Fellay’s mere willingness to communicate with the Holy Father and officials in the Roman Curia after the Supreme Pontiff liberated the traditional Mass and “lifted” Pope John Paul II’s 1988 excommunications of the Society’s bishops.
The report suggests that this meeting is to be held in two weeks’ time at Vienna in Virginia, being hosted by Fr. Ronald Ringrose. Bishop Richard Williamson, a former member of the FSSPX, will be in attendance. The purpose of the secret conclave is to reorganise amongst themselves what they see as being the “true” Society of St. Pius X, and, most distressingly, to consecrate a new bishop for their new hardline sect. It is rumoured that Fr. Joseph Pfeiffer is to be chosen a bishop at this time.
If it is true, hasta la vista, baby.
Did I mention, “rumor”?
Again, the combox is on moderation.
UPDATE 13 Jan 18:25 GMT
There is in circulation a PDF from a group within the SSPX who are resisting the Society’s work with Rome. Click HERE for the pdf of a Dec 2012 newsletter, which I put on my server, lest it go away.
THE RESISTANCE IS ORGANIZING Our retreat was also an excellent occasion to discuss about the kind of organization the Resistance needs in the near future. Bishop Williamson agreed of being the “moral authority” for the Resistance, thus accepting to give us doctrinal guidance and the administration of the sacraments of Confirmation and Holy Orders. A moral authority means that he guides more by example and counsel, rather than by command. Beneath his moral authority, the Resistance will continue to work with its different kinds of organizations: Fr. Pfeiffer’s group, the two Religious Communities in Brazil (The Benedictines of Santa Cruz and the Manossians), and the different independent churches and chapels (like St Athanasius’, in Vienna, VA). In other words, we established a kind of “federation” rather than a centralized organization.
Maybe in the future another kind of organization more structured will be needed, but it was agreed that this kind of structure is the best suited for the actual circumstances. This good news, we hope, will also comfort all the faithful resisting all around the world the conciliar church and the “operation suicide” of the neo-SSPX. We all are happy to see Bishop Williamson “back to work” when the Resistance is most needed of a leadership coming from a true successor of the Apostles.
