H/t: Video above comes by way of a regular reader Cold Standing.

One for the “How on earth could I have possibly missed this” category.

Over on the OnePeterFive blog (see here), we get this via a h/t from Rorate Caeli. The title of the post is: Bishop Schneider: SSPX Personal Prelature Would Redress “Unjust” Suppression. 

One CANNOT understate the SIGNIFICANCE of a bishop of the Catholic Church making a claim that the SSPX has been suppressed UNJUSTLY in 1975 by the HOLY SEE.

This EVENT is the first of its kind, if my memory serves me correctly. (Any readers who disagree, please provide source and I will amend.)

This no doubt is an UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCE of the bizarre activities of Francis, the bishop of Rome where the SANE (rationality and healthiness of the human mind, like the ability to recognize objective truth) are being forced to recognize OBJECTIVE REALITY, no matter how much it must hurt.

An intercession of the TRUE God of surprises, I would add.

I will go even further and suggest that this is only the beginning of a trend that will have other prelates going public with statement confirming this above identified OBJECTIVE REALITY.

Once again, in a post titled Satanic Council – The End Game w/Updates!, the following information is provided by Bishop Fellay, the Superior General of the SSPX:

We’ve been told that at the last meeting of the Congregation of the Faith, where they all meet together, all the cardinals and bishops which are members, we call that a plenaria, this is the full meeting, there was only one cardinal who said, ‘no, no. no, the Society must absolutely accept the whole council’. And other voices who said ‘these people do only one thing, (that is) to repeat what the Church has always taught’. So you see, there is something on the move…                       

Please read the above and please remember, this BATTLE IS BEING FOUGHT IN OUR MINDS. The OBJECTIVE REALITY on the ground and behind the Sacred Vatican Walls as at which is presented by Bishops Fellay and Schneider in the above text.

And since we are on the subject of OBJECTIVE REALITY, one “mark” of something being OBJECTIVE is that it exists in and of itself (outside of ones mind). Therefore, individuals who are engaged in different sub-sets of the Visibilium Omnium are able to identify this OBJECTIVE “thing” (regardless of whether or not this “thing” is in a dematerialized state), independently of other areas of human endeavor.

An example of just this above is contained in the video at the top of this page. In that video, a clinical psychologist, Jordan B. Peterson provides you dear reader, with one of the best “homilies” that I have heard… outside of an SSPX chapel. Please take 10 minutes out of your time and view the video. It is worth every second.

And now,… (see here)



Bishop Schneider: SSPX Personal Prelature Would Redress “Unjust” Suppression

Bishop Athanasius Schneider has given another interview of importance, this time to a French traditional Catholic journal, Présent. In this new interview, Bishop Schneider makes some politely discerning remarks about the currently considered, formal re-integration of the Society of St. Pius X, and then says that the recognition of the SSPX is an act of “rendering justice – belatedly – for the injustice done to the Society [of St. Pius X] in 1975 on the part of the Holy See.”

In the following, I present a translation from these especially important parts of that French interview – as it has been posted by the website Le Forum Catholique – along with the questions posed to Schneider, which are now placed in italics:

The Sovereign Pontiff has now extended the possibility [for the faithful] to confess [in sacramental penance] with priests of the Society of St. Pius X beyond the limits of the Year of Mercy. Does this seem to you to be an important decision?

Yes, of course, and I am very happy about it! This is a very pastoral gesture, very merciful, and in my eyes one of the most important gestures of the pontificate of Pope Francis which helps the process of canonical re-integration of this ecclesiastical reality which has existed for 50 years and which is producing obvious spiritual fruits. Many young families assembled around the Society of St. Pius X love the Church, pray for the pope, as their forebearers have done before them. The Church contains different houses, different spiritualities. Only those ecclesiastics who are hostile toward the Society present it with exaggerated demands. John XXIII as well as Paul VI always insisted upon the pastoral character of the [Second Vatican] Council. If the Society has difficulties in accepting certain documents of Vatican II, one has to place that into the context of the pastoral objective of the Council. The Dogma has not changed. We have the same Faith. Thus, there is no problem to integrate canonically the Society of St. Pius X.

You have been one of the Churchmen sent by the Vatican to visit the seminaries and priories of the Society. Which solution do you think is possible for resolving its controversial position?

The personal prelature is a position that is very fitting for the reality of the Society of St. Pius X and its mission. I am convinced that Monsignor Lefebvre would have accepted voluntarily and with gratitude this proposed official ecclesiastical structure, the recognition of this apostolate by the Church. This would only be an act of rendering justice – quite belatedly – to the unjust suppression of the Society in 1975 on the part of the Holy See. At that time, Monsignor Lefebvre had also presented a [canonical] recourse. The establishment now of a prelature would in some way accept this canonical recourse after a delay of some 40 years. On the other side, the Society must not demand guarantees of 100% which would be entirely unrealistic. We are still on earth, not in Heaven! It [such an inordinate demand] would be a gesture that would reveal a certain lack of confidence in Divine Providence.
