SSPX – turning ordinary Masses into funerals (how to)

SSPX chapel quarantine notice, 25 March 2020

Apparently nobody important has fallen for the funeral ploy, and instead there will be house Masses and very surreptitious chapel Masses, with the usual “park a distance away, creep in slowly one at a time, leave in the same cautious way” warning.

Sounds like a spy novel, and no doubt that’s part of the excitement for them. They get to live out their persecution complex, express their bizarre ideas about COVID, sing (very important to them), they feel like martyrs, and this gives them their adrenaline rush.

Should Tammuz and Nimrod determine Christian practice?

Pope Benedict XVI wearing a camauro

Some people claim that 25 December is really the birthday of Tammuz, Nimrod, Tammuz son of Nimrod, or various other people. From this they conclude that Christmas is really a celebration of Tammuz or Nimrod or someone other than Jesus.

Should Pope Francis wear a mask?

Pope Francis in Korea

Fr Thomas Reese criticises Pope Francis for not wearing a mask, and even goes as far as saying Pope Francis should go to confession over this. He gives 6 points explaining why Pope Francis should wear a mask. The Society of St Pius X (SSPX), a group of mostly health people, are behaving like idiots around the world by shunning mask use and other means of preventing spread of SARS-CoV-2. They can very easily and soundly be condemned as fools. I’m not so sure about Pope Francis.

Does the SSPX even exist?

SSPX logo

The Society of St Pius X (SSPX) was founded on 7 November 1970, with the official document’s signatures predated to 1 November. It was established as a “pia unio”, a “pious union”, aka an association of the faithful, for a provisional/probationary period of 6 years.

On 6 May 1975, 4 years and 5 months later, that status was withdrawn. In the eyes of the Church, the SSPX no longer had any canonical status.

Maskless till the end, the SSPX way

Charles Darwin, 1883

On 24 Sept, it was the 50th anniversary of the founding of the SSPX seminary in Switzerland.

As I said before, with the SSPX the rot goes all the way to the top. I only know of our local SSPX cleric who told his congregation that the law doesn’t apply to them, but in at least 3 countries there have been altercations between the SSPX and law enforcement. That they are above the law is obviously not the published official policy of the SSPX, but it may well be the unspoken unpublished version.

The June ordinations in Switzerland demonstrated that their leadership had absolutely no regard for the safety of others when it came to social distancing and wearing masks.

The same was obvious on 24 September, with their Pontifical High Mass for the transfer of founder Archbishop Lefebvre’s body to another location. No social distancing. No masks.

The Feast of Pope St Liberius of Rome, 23 Sept

Pope St Liberius

In the West, we’ve forgotten that Pope Liberius was celebrated as a saint for over a millennium, with his feast day on 23 September. Venerable Cardinal Caesar Baronius’ 1586 revisions of the Roman Martyrology removed his feast, possibly to avoid further conflict with the Protestants. Pope St Liberius refused to condemn St Athanasius, for which he was briefly imprisoned. While imprisoned, he was forced to sign an apparently semi-Arian document, an act he repented of later.
