SSPX leader calls Jewish people ‘enemies of the Church’. REALLY? If this is representative of what is believed by the SSPX, why is there such an effort made to bring them back under the Vatican. We should be reputing such hate speech, not trying to make space for it in the Church!!!

    Judging from Bishop Fellay’s comments, the SSPX will not be reconciled with the Catholic Church in any foreseeable future.
    They are currently in a kind of ecclesiastical limbo, neither fully part of the Church nor formally excommunicated. Given that reconciliation is not in the offing, there are two possibilities: either they will ordain more bishops in order to perpetuate the group (an act that would incur automatic excommunication), or the movement will die out.

  2. Totally agree. It's degrading for Catholics to be associated with an organization with a leader in that organization, Richard Williamson, who is a holocaust denier.

    1. Rationalist: Williamson was ejected from the SSPX a few months ago. It was shortly before they rejected the Vatican's offered path to reconciliation with the Church. He proved to be too nuts, even for them!

    Bishop Fellay's comment "enemies of the Church"
    1-5-2013

    During a 2-hour conference given in Ontario, Canada on December 28th, 2012, Bishop Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the Society St. Pius X, commented on the relations between the Holy See and the SSPX during the last two years.

    During the conference Bishop Fellay stated “Who, during that time, was the most opposed that the Church would recognize the Society? The enemies of the Church. The Jews, the Masons, the Modernists…”

    The word "enemies" used here by Bishop Fellay is of course a religious concept and refers to any group or religious sect which opposes the mission of the Catholic Church and her efforts to fulfill it: the salvation of souls.

    This religious context is based upon the words of Our Lord Jesus Christ as recorded in the Holy Gospels: “He that is not with me, is against me: and he that gathereth not with me, scattereth.” (Matthew 12:30)

    By referring to the Jews, Bishop Fellay's comment was aimed at the leaders of Jewish organizations, and not the Jewish people, as is being implied by journalists.

    Accordingly the Society of St. Pius X denounces the repeated false accusations of anti-Semitism or hate speech made in an attempt to silence its message.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
