My blog series on the Society of St Pius X (SSPX) and the COVID pandemic has caught the attention of at least one person in St Marys, Kansas, USA. So I’ll say hello here to all the other St Marys residents too.
Hello to St Marys, Kansas!!

I recently discovered another horrific story about a radical traditionalist group behaving similarly towards COVID. Called SSPX Resistance, they are an SSPX spinoff who followed the weirdest SSPX bishop, Bishop Williamson, after he was excommunicated from the SSPX. He’s the guy who publicly claimed on Swedish television that the Holocaust never happened, on the same day he was un-excommunicated from the real Catholic Church by Pope Benedict XVI.

Previously we looked at clear, plain statements from three popes (and others) that confirmed that the relationship between the Society of St Pius X (SSPX) and the Catholic Church is not one of “full communion”. Now we’ll look at how they are a good example of a group with a cult mentality.

“For the pastoral benefit of these faithful, and trusting in the good will of their priests to strive with God’s help for the recovery of full communion in the Catholic Church, I have personally decided to extend this faculty beyond the Jubilee Year …”

At the 7 June sung Mass, the entire SSPX congregation was singing, in contravention of the law. The neighbours could hear it clearly. On Tuesday 9 June, the police met with the cleric and informed him that group singing was prohibited. He claimed that he did not know this. In light of his knowledge of the regulations, I do not believe the cleric.

Life is normal for me, except for the quiet roads and longer and more tiring working hours in a COVID lab. But for most people, this must feel post-apocalyptic. They’re grasping for some level of control over their lives, and, sometimes, YouTube and conspiracy theories provide an outlet. However dangerous that may be. Now a bunch of Catholic bishops have signed a declaration that the whole lockdown thing is a plot by shady businesses and tyrannical governments to institute a one world government that answers to nobody. Just because they’re being told they can’t go to church and make people sick.

In the recent discussions with Adventists I’ve started to realise that Saturday observance, in the way modern sabbatarians teach it, is actually more than just a theological difference, more than just a minor error. It’s a complete defect in the nature of the New Covenant.

This blog is about Adventism, but the Maria Divine Mercy cult is much like Adventism – false prophecies, teachings contrary to the Bible, etc. In fact they’re quite similar to Adventism in some ways, as Supertradmum points out on her blog Etheldredasplace: WOW from A Reader

The saving grace of the entire situation is that the Adventists fortunately deny the logical conclusions to which their doctrines must lead them; i.e. a negation of the full validity of the atonement of Christ, which validity they absolutely confirm, and embrace with considerable fervor – a paradoxical situation at best!
