On (or about) October 15, Fr. Pfeiffer and Fr. Hewko “invited” His Excellency, Bishop Thomas Aquinas to visit Boston, KY.
I think we are in the same situation than in the beginning of the year when I was obliged to say to you not coming to Santa Cruz if you didn’t do something as reparation about what you said towards Bishops of resistance. I heard you or Fr. Hewko or both called Bishop Williamson heretic. How can we speak with you if you say things like this one? I hope you change your positions as to be able to meet you.
May God make you see what is wrong in your behavior.
My Lord, your Excellency,
You refuse to speak to us because you heard that someone said that they heard that we said “Bishop Williamson is a heretic.” Hence, those souls who are dying in need of Extreme Unction may not be anointed by Frs. JP and Hewko since these priests may have spoken offensively about Bishop Williamson. Offending the good name of Bishop Williamson means they may not receive the Sacraments of the Church before death.
Seminarians studying for Priesthood may not be ordained since their rector is perceived to be too critical of Bishop Williamson. Is the good bishop’s name worth more than the Name of the Lord God, Creator of us all?
Our more than 2000 sheep are unworthy of Sacraments also since they may not honor his Episcopal name sufficiently?
You are a Bishop and will soon meet your Creator and Lord at the Judgement. Will you have to repeat the words of Cardinal Wolsey, the Faithful servant of Henry VIII of England? He said, “If only I had served my God half as well as I served my King.” You are indeed a loyal servant of Bishop Williamson, and you are proving it by your worthy actions of defending him by doing whatever is in your power to destroy his perceived enemies.
Did you not tell souls to avoid Fr. Cardozo Masses and sacraments for the same reason?
Did you not also encourage the Columbians to expel Fr. Raphael and his little Monastery for the same reasons?
You have been a zealous Bishop defending the honor of the Lord of Broadstairs.
I met several times before a Monk – Dom Tomas Aquino who served the Lord of Heaven. What happened to him? Whence has he gone?
Did Archbishop Lefebvre (or any other Catholic Bishop) refuse sacraments, etc. to anyone who called him by bad names?
Fr. Hewko and myself, for the record, have never called Bishop Williamson a Heretic anyway.
Before you were consecrated you did three evil condemnable acts.
1. You wrote two letters about the New Mass supporting Bishop Williamson’s statements on the New Mass.
2. You told souls to reject Fr. Cardozo because of his critical remarks against Bishop Williamson.
3. You wrote a letter of rejection against myself and Fr. Hewko forbidding us to attend your Consecration or even to visit afterwards. Was this the price you had to pay to receive purple and a cross about your chest?
I was told before of a bad monk in Brazil who did not follow the Rule of St. Benedict, who was mentally ill in need of being replaced. No young man should be allowed to enter his monastery etc. I did not believe them. After meeting you in Silver City then in Brazil all doubts were removed.
You should be familiar with being a victim of Calumny and hence owe, in justice, to give Fr. Hewko and I a fair hearing.
In your visit to the USA and Canada there are about 1000 or more souls who won’t see you since they are with Boston, KY. They are being left orphans by you and Bishop Faure, mere suffragan bishops of Bishop Williamson – and why?…Because they hold on to the Faith handed down by their Fathers especially Archbishop Lefebvre, who rejected the New Mass and the New Church or order to remain faithful to “Eternal Rome.” Eternal Rome is still here on earth now in all souls that remain at this moment Faithful to Her.
I do not lightly criticize you, but with a heavy hope that your conscience will remember former times when it served God rather than a man. Can you really say that you now are serving God?
A Moral Theology reminder. No priest may refuse Sacraments or priestly help to anyone who attacks his person or makes accusation against himself. Even if we had called BPW or thyself “heretic” this would not be an excuse before God to refuse any priestly help. This is the familiar teaching of the Gospel that even pagans know, “do good to those who hate you” etc. Therefore your reason to refuse us has no foundation in Christ or His Holy Gospel.
If, however, Fr. Hewko and I are preachers of Heresy or grave errors then as a bishop of the Church you must correct us by both pointing out our errors (allowing a defense of course) and teaching the correct way.
God bless you Excellency, we can still come to see you if you allow us, as discreetly or publicly as you wish.
In Christ our King and King of all creation,
Fr. Joseph Pfeiffer
Fr. David Hewko
And this is a teaching which is condemned by Our Holy Mother the Church. It is the foundation of the heresy of ecumenism.”

The invitation by Boston was insincere, in that the response of Bishop Thomas Aquinas was not only foreseeable, but was in fact foreseen in Boston. That it was extended at all, therefore, was really just posturing to justify making public the complaints and grievances which comprise the response of Fr. Pfeiffer and Fr. Hewko. In doing so, Fr. Pfeiffer hoped to portray Boston as being punished for it’s alleged “fidelity” to Archbishop Lefebvre, with the effect of tightening the loyalty of the dupes, and securing his ground against further defections. In this he has probably succeeded, but only at the expense of further isolation (were it possible), and guaranteeing that there is no future at all in Boston.
