SSPX return rumours addressed by Vatican

(SACNS)

Marc Aupiais15:01  -  Public
SSPX return rumours addressed by Vatican The group which refused to accept Vatican II, including teachings on acceptance of other religions, may have taken back their previous stance

There have been speculative blogs by many people on this matter. An acquaintance in high school cut himself off from the world to join an SSPX monastery, so I really hope the group have forsaken their previous stance. The SSPX, or many of their members and sympathists believed that the Catholic Church had gone astray, inclusive within this was their general rejecting of the Vatican's stance that humanity and not the Jews were responsible for Jesus' Death. The current leader, has already stood out as seemingly opposed to those in his group who are antisemitic, hopefully he can lead them back from their less than ordinary ideas about the world.

The group has gained some empathy from Catholics who miss the aesthetics of the old Latin Mass, some of whom attend their services for love of the dead language, still the official language of the Church.

The papacy has yet to accept whatever statement the controversial group have made. Benedict XVI is hopefully smart enough to make the right choice, firstly for the mission of the church, and the people and image of the church and for the sake of the world. Secondly, that he makes the right decision, in relation to the group itself. One hopes the Vatican won't make a mistep, whether they accept or else reject the reply of the controversial group. When negotiations saw the excommunication of their leaders set aside, the Vatican had made a mistake, given one of the controversial SSPX group's Bishops /leaders had denied the holocaust had happened in World War II.

Vatican Press Release:

"COMMUNIQUE FROM THE PONTIFICAL COMMISSION "ECCLESIA DEI"

Vatican City, 18 April 2012 (VIS) - The Pontifical Commission "Ecclesia Dei", today released the following communique:
"On 17 April, as requested during the 16 March meeting held at the offices of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the Commission received the response of Bishop Bernard Fellay, superior general of the Society of St. Pius X. The text of the response will be examined by the dicastery then submitted to the Holy Father for his judgement"."

Rorate Caeli blog calls SSPX publisher "the best overall Catholic publisher and bookseller in the English-speaking world"! And a "gift to the world"



Article by Marc Aupiais

Rorate Caeli which covers special interests relating to the Latin Mass, and to the FSSP and SSPX, has written an article which would suggest their sympathies are closer to the SSPX than to the church, here is an extract:

"We thank the best overall Catholic publisher and bookseller in the English-speaking world, Angelus Press, for their generous support of our contest [...] Angelus Press never fails to print and/or offer excellent publications. Visit their website frequently and watch out for their latest announcements. (This is certainly not an ad, but a sincere acknowledgment of the gift that Angelus Press is to the world.)"
Rorate Caeli (relabelled SSPX sympathisers; SSPX special interests news; American; possible affiliation with SSPX)
We quote "New Catholic"


So, who are these "never fails to print and/or offer 'excellent' publications" people? But the unofficial voice of the SSPX, the schismatic group of priests who split from Rome under former Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre:

It's own website says:

"Angelus Press was founded in 1978 in Dickinson, Texas by Fr. Carl Pulvermacher, OFM.  It began as an apostolate of the Society of St. Pius X to promote Catholic literature.  Since its conception, Angelus Press has published a monthly magazine – The Angelus -- "A Journal of Roman Catholic Tradition.” [...]

In time, Angelus Press began to publish and print its own books on rudimentary presses.  Collation was done completely by hand – a most time-consuming process.
From the confines of our humble Texas shack, we moved to Kansas City, Missouri in 1992, occupying the basement and the first floor of the SSPX’s St. Vincent’s Priory (formerly known as the Regina Coeli House)."

Says Catholic Answers' This Rock Magazine, the Angelus Press published the following title, which on its own even if you don't read the open affiliation to the sspx, you will see is pro-sspx:

"The Collected Works of His Excellency Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, vol. 1 [The Angelus Press]"

Christmas isn't all about family

But I assure you, today is. Remember you still have to attend church today: Holy Family Sunday. The day we celebrate our families by loving and caring for them and Jesus' Family all the same.

Christmas is about sharing Christ. Today is about sharing family- his family first, then our own!

Christmas Eve: the Vigil Mass and Christmas itself

Article by Marc Aupiais


A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you!

For those seeking to obey the church canon law and attend mass

Christmas Eve: the Vigil Mass and Christmas itself

http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=180723778622365


Christmas is quite a day usually, which is why we give this friendly reminder. It is acceptable to attend a vigil mass on the eve of Christmas, during the afternoon. I am personally going to a church at 5 or 6 pm tonight. That way you do mass and get a whole lot of time on Christmas for family!

Also remember SABC 3 is airing the pope's midnight mass from 11 PM to 1 AM tonight. This is an initiative of the SACBC to help those too ill or far from a parish to attend, however I like to watch it in addition to mass, especially as it does not fulfill the obligation should one only watch it and not be for grave reason such as distance or illness unable to attend mass. Yet, for me it is quite the spectacle and well worth the watch be it live or recorded.

You can also attend your local midnight mass whenever it is. Or attend with the crowds tomorrow morning!


Christmas is a day of Holy Obligation for Roman Catholics.

No need for killing foetuses at all- with new Stem cell treatment

Note by Marc Aupiais

In the past it has been claimed there is a need to harvest stem cells from abortions to compare with adult stem cells moved back. Embryonic stem cells often cause cancer, adult stem cells (not from aborted human beings) were seen as the safest. If it is confirmed, a new method which involves straight transfer from stem cells to needed cells may do away with that so-called not really need altogether:

"Canadian scientists have turned human skin cells directly into blood cells, the first time one kind of mature human cell has been converted into another, according to a study published last week in the journal Nature.

The transformation was completed without first rewinding the skin cells into the flexible pluripotent stem cells that have most frequently been used to grow tissues. By skipping the pluripotent step, the researchers believe they have skirted the risk that the replacement cells might form dangerous tumours.

The team created blood progenitor cells - mother cells that multiply to produce other blood cells - as well as mature blood cells, according to the report. Both types of cells could be useful in medical treatments, said study leader Mick Bhatia, a stem cell scientist at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario."

Cardinal John Henry Newman Beatified



(SACNS Europe; Tridentine South And Southern Africa)

Update by Marc Aupiais

Our Great and Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, the human power, divinely ordained beyond other human power, hath Beatified the Great Theologian John Henry Newman.

Rather than setting the Feast day of this great Blessed on the date of his death and thus his possible entry into heaven, the Great and Wise Holy Father, hath instead chosen the date at which this great man, this leader of the Oxford Movement within the Anglican Separation entered into the Holy Flock of Rome, in pursuit of his great Conscience. The Great Man Benedict XVI has also decided to put aside for this memorable occasion: (the second visit of a pontiff to Great Britain since it rejected the Holy Faith, and the First Papal State Visit since that sad day:) the rule he had made that the Holy Pontiff at Rome should only canonize and not merely beatify the great men and women who are to be upheld one day as the saints of heaven.

While some thousand men and women did protest at the date of this momentous honour given an Englishman: most within the Island's famous population had had no real view of the great occasion for Great Britain and the World. Some objected to taxpayer funding of this great event- made all the more expensive given the much more real threat against the pope by Great Britain.

The Daily Mail attacked those opposing the state visit, saying simply enough: where exactly were the protests, and great indignation, and arrest threats when South African President Jacob Zuma landed in great Britain?

This visit has been a catastrophe for Great Britain globally, which having invited a visit to Britain for the pope as Head of the Great Vatican State, then mocked his visit, in the Independent and The Guardian and other outlets. As Australian Broadcasting Corporation noted, Benedict XVI is the one who first requested powerfully in the Vatican that sex abuse cases be dealt with by the Vatican, and not complicit bishops, and that these cases be reported to authorities. It is also this pope who has decided to apologise to victims, and to appoint the exact traditionally inclined men into authority which should rid the Holy Body of this terrible blemish of sin!

An event more emotional and important to a nation than the Olympic games, while so far not a failure, has shown to Great Britain's Great Shame: that it is a country, where anything but righteousness is acceptable.

Fortunately Cardinal Kasper's comments and withdrawal, which Australian Broadcasting Corporation saw as a move by a political adversary of the pope, did not wreck the entire event. He called Great Britain a third world country, and a place of terrible secularism. Perhaps why it has taken the wait for Benedict XVI to have the Vatican put aside its view of Great Britain to honour a man notably British!

Opus Dei, a sanctuary



(Tridentine South Africa)

Article by Marc Aupiais


I have always had the deepest of longings and desires: I have wanted to join Opus Dei for years, though God's answer to my prayers is no. As with the priestly life, God, it seems; has always said I am destined to marriage- to quite an important woman.

The force with which he replies, always suggests her importance to his plan. None the less, I admire Opus Dei, and listen to these stories with longing. The article in the Daily Mail concludes:


"‘I didn’t like the promiscuity I saw at university,’ she says. ‘I didn’t want that for me. I didn’t want that life. I rejected it as part of my lifestyle. I didn’t want to be part of it.’
I cannot get over the small matter of the cilice — surely it’s a seismic leap from eschewing promiscuity to self-harming in this way?
Sarah was 20 when she started wearing it. ‘The first time you do anything that’s not particularly pleasant, you don’t like it. But over time it’s just something that’s there. The result of doing it is that you should be a much nicer person afterwards.’
Eileen adds: ‘We live in such a materialistic, hedonistic society that people can’t understand you’d actually make yourself a little uncomfortable to help you be more mindful of God.
‘They’ll understand if you go jogging and pounding the streets — which I think is disgusting — just because you want to be thinner, but they won’t understand this.’
It’s a fair point. After all, which is more peculiar or ‘unnatural’: women who endure the agony of, say, Botox injections or leg-waxing, in order to be beautiful, and those Opus Dei devotees who strap on a cilice as a sign of spiritual devotion?
Still, I can’t help feeling that most women would consider it a strange God who requires them to do the washing up wearing a chain of barbed wire.

Murmurs, lies, holocaust reduction check: but is a recent newsletter by SSPX Williamson, a hint that reunification with Rome is on the horizon for the infamous fraternity



(SACNS Europe; Tridentine South Africa)

SACNS Quote Analysis:
Murmurs of a separatist - SSPX Bishop alleges that Rome will accept their schism back

A recent newsletter sent out by Bishop Richard Williamson, of the SSPX, has raised eyebrows, suggesting that he may be reacting to a possible coming reunification with Rome.

Some context

The SSPX is a group which broke off from the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church through the consecration of four bishops, not authorized by the Holy See, including Williamson, by the late Archbishop Lefebvre, as the leaders of their Priestly Fraternity of Saint Pius X (FSSPX/SSPX) in 1988. The consecration saw Lefebvre, and his four bishops excommunicated. The SSPX believes that the Second Vatican Council, was not infallible in moral and doctrinal matters. It opposed the translation of the Catholic Latin Rite Mass into colloquial languages. According to the Vatican, all priests in the said priestly organisation, are in schism.

Recently, as part of negotiations with the fraternity, the Vatican official applicable, lifted the excommunications automatically incurred by the four leaders of what the Vatican sees as the SSPX schism. Just before this, an interview by a television station, conducted with Williamson was aired, in which he portrayed the Holocaust against Jews in World War II by the National Socialists of Germany, as much less than that believed to have occured by mainstream historians, and war records. In his view, the holocaust was only a minor event.

The bad publicity received by Rome, due to his interview, being released, caused an international storm, which Benedict XVI, was himself hit by, through choosing to take the full blame for the actions of the bishop, who lifted the excommunications, of the said SSPX four, as part of negotiations.

Traditionalist Catholic, and Latin Mass special interests coverage service, Rorate Caeli, has now released a copy of Williamson's recent newsletter, which besides its negative portrayal of the Vatican, suggests that seemingly because Benedict XVI will likely die soon, as the schismatic against Rome suggests, most popes do: that the Pope will pass over many doctrinal differences, and on condition the SSPX accept the Catechism of the Catholic Church, allow the group's members back into the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic church. Williamson, like many SSPX members, believes that Vatican II, considered infallible on morals and doctrine by the mainstream Catholic Church and hierarchy, has no legitimacy, and is heresy.

The logic of the SSPX bishop is highly flawed, but given the fact his holocaust denial interview was aired just before the excommunications were lifted by the bishop in charge of negotiating with the SSPX (contrary to media reports, Benedict XVI is not the negotiator, it is a bishop assigned the task), it may be possible that the SSPX bishop, is attempting to stifle an agreement his fellow bishops have made with Rome.
