Following the SSPX No Matter What

If you haven’t checked out Samuel Loeman’s newly revamped Tradidi website yet, now would be a good time to do it: He has just translated a short article from Gloria.tv titled Is the Prelature Close?, which explains why most SSPX clergy and faithful will stay right where they are, no matter what Rome or Menzingen do next. A choice…


New Details Coming to Light on Fr. Morgan’s Departure from the SSPX

On August 11, Sodalitium Pianum reported on the departure of Fr. Paul Morgan (former SSPX British District Superior) from the Society. On August 12, we followed up that initial report with additional details surrounding Fr. Morgan’s resignation. Today, still more details connected with the circumstances surrounding Fr. Morgan’s departure from the Society have emerged on the French Resistance forum….


Fight or Flight?

Pope Leo XIII (1878 – 1903) A timely excerpt from the encyclical Sapientiae Christianae 14. But in this same matter, touching Christian faith, there are other duties whose exact and religious observance, necessary at all times in the interests of eternal salvation, become more especially so in these our days. Amid such reckless and widespread folly…


Pfeifferites Tell Archbishop Lefebvre to Get Lost!

I plan to bump this post every couple months, as it shows quite nicely the contradiction between Fr. Pfeiffer and the Sect, and Archbishop Lefebvre in the matter of the transmission of sanctifying grace to well disposed Novus Ordo communicants. You can follow Fr. Pfeiffer, or you can follow Archbishop Lefebvre, but you can’t follow…

Menzingen Commands November 11, 2017 Providence has kept the Society safe at home – ? By blocking many attempts to join with Rome! By no means all readers of these “Comments” are in favour of criticism of the words and deeds of the Headquarters at Menzingen of the Newsociety of St Pius X. However, there…


First Diaconal Ordination for the SAJM

On August 22, 2016 Bishop Jean Michel Faure canonically erected the Priestly Society of the Apostles of Jesus and Mary (SAJM), which currently operates as the only canonically erected congregation of secular priests in the Resistance (and soon, in all of Tradition). Yesterday, it was announced on a Brazilian resistance website that Bishop Tomás Aquinas (OSB) conferred…


The Resistance and Self-Fulfilling Prophecy

The Resistance and Self-Fulfilling Prophecy by Sean Johnson 11/8/17   A couple weeks ago, I introduced the idea of “self-fulfilling prophecy” in relation to Bishop Williamson’s discouraging and defeatist counsel in a recent Eleison Comments, stating my belief that: To take the completely defensive and fatalistic posture His Excellency is advocating is to GUARANTEE defeat;…


An Apology Paired With a Non-Retraction

A couple weeks ago, I vented my frustration with what I perceived to be the continuous demoralizing, fatalistic, and counterproductive messages contained in the writings and conferences of Bishop Williamson, and the negative impact I believe they are having on the growth of the Resistance (or any prospect of rebuilding the Church and Christian society)….


More Bewildering SSPX Mass Changes

(New SSPX Mass Guidelines inserted into the pews at the Chapel; blue hash marks indicate innovations) * A few weeks ago, Sodalitium Pianum published an article titled “SSPX Preparing for a Hybrid Mass?,” in which we posted a story by the conciliar Tridentina Malta blog which claimed to have access to highly placed Roman sources who confirmed that…
