arch-lefebvreToday we take a break from our FAKE NEWS thread and open up another thread, this time pertaining to what comes after the 4 Cardinals publish their formal ‘correction’ of the FrancisBishop of Rome. I would like to get this post on record before the 4 Cardinal’s publication, so that I can seamlessly transition into what I think the ramifications of this “correction will be”.

I do not want to go into this at present, and will inform my readers as to the reasons why when the time is right.

So back to the subject at hand.

We pick up the story where we left off with our post Desperately Seeking ReconciliationIn that post, we OBSERVED that Francis is desperate to recognize the Society of St. Pius X and provided some thoughts on why this might be the case. We left off with the following OBSERVATION:

Therefore, what is becoming quite clear for all observers of this situation is:

  • the SSPX will not budge.
  • Francis desperately needs a reconciliation.
  • The reason Francis desperately needs reconciliation is in order to gain some sort of control over the SSPX and ring-fence the NORMALIZATION PROCESS™ inside the Ecclesia Dei Commission. Hence Diocesan bishops must consult with the Vatican before establishing a diocesan religious order, Pope Francis ruled.
  • Francis needs to gain control over the SSPX so as to block off any escape route for the Catholics stuck in NUChurch. Hence clampdown on contemplative orders.
  • Francis is planning a repression of the larger Western Church and understands that it will not go as easily as with the suppression of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate. Hence Come una madre amorevole in case of rebellion.
  • But most importantly, Francis needs to do something IMMEDIATELY since the Restoration is speading in the Catholic Church, especially in the wealthy Western countries.
  • The neo-modernist’s who support Francis are freaking out since they see that with their demise, so will end their Novus Ordo NUChurch.
  • This will end their IDEOLOGICAL life’s work and consign them to not only the trash-heap of history, but will earn them the hatred of future generations of the Faithful.

Therefore they are leaning on the hapless Francis.

And Francis has backed himself into a corner and has only one option left, and that is the “UNILATERAL RECOGNITION” of the SSPX. (emphasis added)

We see the haplessness of Francis’ position in the FrancisStatement pertaining to the status of the SSPX that was supposed to be contained in the Apostolic Letter Misericordia et Misera (ALMetM) which merely extended SSPX confessions’ provision.

Now, anyone following my site could have suspected that Francis was not going to pull the UNILATERAL RECOGNITION trigger at this time. The reason being that their was nothing to gain by recognizing the SSPX at this time, yet if he did, Francis would have lost whatever leverage he has… or rather he thinks he has over the Society.

Please keep in mind, Francis is all about CONTROL!

Yet, the fact that Francis even mentioned the SSPX in the ALMetM has a significant SIGNALLING EFFECT. (see here) What is the most important signal to take away from this episode is that the SSPX is foremost on Francis’ mind. He can’t seem to let them go, nor can he get himself to ignore them. In other words, they are living in Francis’ mind, rent free. Which means that Francis is demonstrating (SIGNALLING) the intensity of his DESPERATION to obtain any sort of control over the SSPX. And he is letting us all know this through the SIGNALLING EFFECT of the content in the ALMetM.

Far fetched, you may ask dear reader?

Well, not really.

Here is a HYPOTHESIS that in turn has been living in my mind, rent free since Francis admitted that the SSPX can hear confessions validly.

The key to understanding the mortal danger that the SSPX pose to the post conciliar church in general and to the supercharged FRANCISCHURCH in particular is that the SSPX have figured out the doctrinally proper avenue with respect to resisting a pope.

What makes the SSPX unique is that they were never excommunicated properly, and the act of excommunication which “they entered into” by consecrating the 4 bishops in 1988 is not valid. I don’t want to go into the entire justification here, so please go to the following link and read all about the background and justification of why the SSPX acted the way in which they acted. (see Here) For our purposes here, what is important is that the SSPX …

H.A.S.  N.E.V.E.R.  S.E.P.A.R.A.T.E.D.  F.R.O.M.  T.H.E. C.A.T.H.O.L.I.C.  C.H.U.R.C.H.

What the SSPX does is resist St. Peter, as did St. Paul. Yet they maintain their loyalty to the Roman Pontiff, praying for him in every Holy Sacrifice of the Mass which they offer. Furthermore, they are not only gracious in their contacts with the Holy See and the local Ordinaries, but they also have never broken off contact with the Roman Church. Actually, they are in constant contact with the Roman Church and have been since their founding. (see Here)

Now contrasting this with real schismatic movements, such as the orthodox, and the various sects of the protestants. Those individuals in these mentioned groups, when entering into a schism, broke off all contacts. One way which this situation can be read is that it was the orthodox and protestants that burned their bridges. By burning ones bridges, these sects not only cut off all dialogue, but likewise cut off all ties that they had with Rome, i.e. ending any form in which they could exert pressure upon the Roman authorities in order to influence the Roman authorities behavior.

Here is how Dr. Joseph Shaw explains this situation:

The Greeks told us back in 1054 that the Pope was in error for adding the filioque to the Creed. In 1870 the ‘Old Catholics’ thought that the Pope and the First Vatican Council was in error over the definition of Papal Infallibility. In both cases, they, like many, many, groups in between, went into schism, which is to say that they stopped accepting the authority or communion of bishops and others who sided with the Pope.

While the SSPX, as opposed to the above identified groups, have never stopped accepting the authority or communion of bishops and others who sided with the Pope.

To be more precise, one must add the qualification: when that authority and communion were in accordance with the Universal Magistarium and Sacred Tradition.

And this is the key to understanding Francis’ actions in regards to the SSPX.

Therefore, it is THIS relationship dynamic which in FACT is what Francis is trying to control.

And why is this relationship dynamic a mortal threat to Francis and his co-conspirators?

Well, it’s because the Catholics who still possess an modicum of supernatural FAITH can resist this FrancisBishop of Rome in the same manner, and under the same justification that the SSPX have been resisting numerous Roman Pontiffs since 1975.


And it is the unbroken UNIVERSAL MAGISTERIUM and HOLY TRADITION that is the STANDARD against which the actions of any Roman Pontiff are JUDGED.

Given the above state of play (OBJECTIVE REALITY), how can will the 4 Cardinal’s “correction” CRISIS play itself out within the Holy Roman Catholic Church?

Here is one likely scenario:

In a post written by Dr. Joseph Shaw of the Latin Mass Society, we can read the following passage: (see Here)

As Cardinal Burke noted, a formal correction of the Pope might come from just a single cardinal – or, we might add, of non-cardinals.

And what is the significance of a formal correction? Here is this part:

The point is that it is part of process, in some hypothetical situation, in which it becomes clear to at least some people that the teaching of the Church is one thing, and the published opinion of the Pope (or what can be drawn from his publications and his silence with moral certainty), another.

What this means is that the OBJECTIVE REALITY of the situation will become clear in the minds of Faithful prelates. The OBJECTIVE REALITY is that the Roman Pontiff has taken a position that contradicts Divine Law.

And to follow the logical sequence, Dr. Shaw defines the end goal of the 4 Cardinal’s ‘correction’:

If that becomes clear, then it has implications, at least for the people to whom it becomes clear.

It is at this point where the SSPX’s PROPER WAY FORWARD comes into play.

If we are dealing with Catholic prelates who still hold the Catholic Faith, and one must assume that a number of them do, then it will become MANDATORY that these Catholic prelates (and not only prelates) take action.

The question is though, what can they, and what should they, and what must they do?

For the answer to this question, we go over to the post titled The Satanic Council. (see Here) In that post, your humble blogger has transcribed part of a conference address that Bishop Fellay, the Superior General of the SSPX gave to a number of the FAITHFUL. In this address, we can hear (read) the following:

It’s a catastrophe for the Church, (situation with the Joy of Sex and Francis’s actions) but it’s good, it’s good that finally there is a reaction.

I reference that which Dr. Shaw wrote about the implications for “the people to whom it becomes clear”. This is them.


It’s high time. And this reaction is growing.

Confirmation that there is resistance to the Roman Pontiff.

And now you have to reflect.

How can someone oppose the pope?

So what we see being described here is what we have termed as the PROPER and LEGITAMATE MECHANISM, FIRMLY BASED IN NATURAL MORAL AND DIVINE LAW, for RESISTING any and all UNJUST ACTIONS of a ROMAN PONTIFF.

Bishop Fellay goes on to explain:

We know, we have given the explanation. It’s not now. It’s (been for) years that we explained why we have the right to do so. (Resist an unjust action of a Roman Pontiff)

As for the situation of the Catholic, non-SSPX prelates, here is that passage:

But these bishops and cardinals, what there doing now, (they) must also reflect and have the right answer, how in… in which name do they have the right to oppose the pope.

The Holy Father.

The one who’s under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost.

And here is where Bishop Fellay explains how it is that these prelates in the post-conciliar church got ensnared in their own logical inconsistencies:

These are all  the arguments that they gave to us, to say you must obey.

So under which name now they say: disobey.

And here is the PROPER ANSWER:

Well, there is only one answer. It’s because the Church in the past has already spoken about these things. And (She has) given the answer. And that’s what we call Tradition.

Concluding, what we see above is that Francis is trapped. He has tried to change Catholic doctrine through the back door. He has used threats, intimidation and punishment to force those prelates who still possess a modicum of supernatural FAITH into relenting and accepting his FALSE IDEOLOGY disguised as MERCY. 

Yet he has not been able to push his changes through by force. What he has found is an opponent who is willing to resist. And this makes Francis “boil with rage”.

Yet the news in the Catholic post-conciliar church is not good either. These FAITHFUL prelates have been in a position where they just can’t ignore treachery introduced by certain elements within the post conciliar church. They understand that it is their salvation that is at stake, yet they have found themselves in a battle against forces who most likely don’t believe in either a Catholic God, or any other god, aside from their own alter-egos.

And by their fruits one can make this SUPPOSTION. 

And Francis knows this also. Which is what lays behind his efforts to pacify the SSPX.

So now these Catholic prelates that have found themselves in this dire position, are looking for justification for doing what they must do. They now realize that the only justification that they have at their disposal is grounded in HOLY TRADITION. (see here)

And they must be thanking the Almighty God that they have the GENIUS of Archbishop Lefebvre to show them the way.

Or at least they soon will be…

I will end here, but will continue this thread as EVENTS proceed…
