Father Hewko: Catechism Regarding His Decision to Leave OLMC

February 24th, 2019 in Saint Catherines, Ontario, Canada
Here for this little catechism in Saint Catherines in Ontario, just to say a few words about the circumstances now. I know, believe me, this move to depart from the OLMC was not easy and the last thing I wanted to see was another division. We’ve had enough division in the traditional Catholic circles that we need another one. But to be very truthful, I should be asking apologies really, for waiting maybe eight months too late and it’s partially my fault too that this dragged out, this whole case with Ambrose Moran, which he has a soul to save, pray for him. I'm not bashing him either but pray for him he's a friendly man but he's certainly not one for us to seek ordinations from.
So, back in 2015, Father Pfeiffer disassociated from Bishop Ambrose. I thought it was over, I thought it was done, and good, and actually, God showed many graces because there was a kind of a rebirth and growth. There was the Ambrose earthquake, a handful of people left, very upset because they saw his fake pictures and some of his fudged documents, there was many questions raised. But when finally, the disassociation hit in 2015, I thought it was over but then a good priest, Father Joseph Poisson, he was in the Society of St. Peter for many years, ordained in 1996 by Bishop Timlin who was ordained in the Old Rite. He was MC for Pope Pius XII but he was consecrated a bishop in the New Rite and he ordained Father Poisson in the Traditional Tridentine Rite. So, the doubt, the only little doubt, with Father Poisson is lying in the bishop with the consecration of the New Rite, which I just read to you what Archbishop Lefebvre said, I repeat.
“I agree with your desire to ordain conditionally these priests and I have done this re-ordination many times. All sacraments from the modernist bishops or priests are doubtful now. The changes are increasing and their intentions are no more Catholic.” – Archbishop Lefebvre
Father Pfeiffer and I remember in the 90s or late 80s, in the Seminary in Winona, Bishop Williamson would call one of us, start getting ready for clandestine ordination. Why? Because there was a priest, one who came back to tradition, he wants to be certainly ordained. Bishop Williamson did what Archbishop Lefebvre at the time, which was automatically conditionally ordain them, just in case. Why? Because the New Rite of Ordination and the New Rite of Consecration are at least doubtful, at least. Archbishop Lefebvre never definitely said ‘they're all invalid,’ never said that, but he said they're doubtful because the form, the intention, even the oils have been changed.
So, I thought it was over and then, in last July, I found out the night before, I saw the seminarians packing and I said, ‘what's going on?’ and they said, ‘We're going to Bishop Ambrose's place for the ordination, conditional, of Father Poisson.’ I was very upset myself and when I had the chance to talk to Father after the summer trip in August, I usually do the summer pilgrimage, and then I think it was in September I told Father Pfeiffer, this was a huge breach of trust of our faithful, because they thought we disassociated and now he's yanked back.
We’re not sure exactly where this Bishop Ambrose stands because I've seen the ten or so fake pictures, I've seen them. I've seen the documents that do look fudged and I'm not here to bash Ambrose Moran but there's a deep connection in his past of ordination and consecration with the schismatic Orthodox. So, that's enough to say stay away. I've consulted a canon lawyer, I've consulted many priests. Every one of them says in such a case stay away, especially because of the fraud history involved and not just once.
So, in a way, I should be asking forgiveness for myself, for waiting this long, actually. I should have made a step to leave back in July. I was hoping and bending over backwards and then, I was going to leave after Father's first statement of disassociation which was January 23rd, but it didn't say the word ‘disassociation’. I told Father I'm not going to hang around for this, I'm going to leave. Then Father held a big meeting with the priests and seminarians in Kentucky, mainly to try to dissuade me and so I told Father, look this is not a letter of disassociation, the word’s not even in it. I said why can't you just put the word ‘disassociation’. So, it was a tug of war of words and then Father Pancras spoke up and said ‘well if Father Hewko says put the word ‘disassociation’ what’s so hard about that?’ So, Father finally agreed. But in the statement of disassociation it does say that the investigation was going slowly, it was not completed, but we all know that wasn't the case because Bishop Ambrose was yanked in for the July conditional ordination of Father Poisson.
So, without getting too much into the technicals of it. I have left, I pray for good Father Pfeiffer, he's a great priest, he has not compromised on Vatican II, on the New Mass, he will never budge on that. He’s not gone sedevacantist. But the thing is this is kind of a, I don't know, a curveball of the devil from another angle which is sending a bishop with schismatic connections, deeply schismatic connections. Then the history of fake pictures, fudged documents and frauds and all this.
So, I told Father, how can we possibly lead these seminarians off the cliff, with a bishop we don't even know if he’s Catholic for sure, we don’t even know if he's even valid, we don't even know what he is. Because if you got someone, let me put it this way again, would you fly in an airplane by an airplane pilot who has fake diplomas, fake pictures of him with other pilots and a history of about six crashes? Would you fly in that airplane? How can we entrust these seminarians to a man that is just swimming in question marks?
I've been telling Father for the last few months, I'm going to leave, if you bring him in, I’m leaving. He’s been more aggressively pushed and I have to regret that after the disassociation, he's still being pushed as valid and if he’s valid you can use him. But I’m not, Joe, Canon lawyer, but we're not in any position to rehabilitate a bishop in this position. Plus, with a character of fraud and arrest for fraud and I only say this because it's public record, not to knock his reputation, any of us can become criminals and we can all fall, but the fact is, there is public record of fraud with six restaurants and one of them being a pawn shop.
So, with such a record, how could you entrust priestly ordinations to such a man, such a character? And that's a big problem and that touches the validity of sacraments, the future of the priesthood of these boys and that's the first and biggest reason why I had to leave OLMC.
So, I'm not accepting Vatican II and the New Mass, may I die ever before compromising on that. I'm not sedevacantist, I’m holding the same line I've always held since I was ordained, with the help of Our Lady. But I'm not going to go with a doubtful, questionable, schismatic bishop, whatever it is.
But I do ask you pray for me, pray for good Father Pfeiffer, pray for poor Father Poisson, who's really in a pickle jar because he's got two questionable ordinations, the poor guy, and he may feel he's a priest and he probably is, if the rite was valid. Bishop (Timblin?) most likely would respect the proper matter, form and intention. But, as you just heard Archbishop Lefebvre, there is that little bit of doubt because it’s the New Rite and remember, the intention behind the masterminds of the New Rite for ordinations and consecrations is to kill the Catholic Church, shut down all grace. That's why there's a doubt and Archbishop Lefebvre, he systematically, in most cases, re-ordained them and Bishop Tissier, he even hits it harder listen to these words. Bishop Tissier, June 29th, 2016, which explains why he’s kind of kept under the wraps:
“Clearly, we cannot accept this fake New Rite of Ordination that leaves doubts concerning the validity of numerous ordinations done according to the New Rite. Thus, this New Rite of ordination is not Catholic.” I bet you when Bishop Tissier said these words all the priests and Bishop Fellay, they were squirming in their seats because this is going totally against the whole new direction of the new SSPX. So, God bless Bishop Tissier for his bravery to say these words and they're true but I’m surprised they didn’t hang him. And then he concludes. “And so, we will, of course, faithfully continue to transmit the real and valid priesthood by the traditional priestly Rite of Ordination.” You can find that on thecatacombs.org. It has some very good articles about Archbishop Lefebvre being brought back to the surface.
The bottom line is since, “Bishop"(?) Ambrose, was brought back in July, you get burnt, you can blame the other guy the first time. I get burnt the second time,blame me. So, I'm not going to stick around and wait for Bishop Ambrose to be brought back. The reason I say that, is I had to pull teeth at that meeting to get the word ‘disassociation’ in the disassociation statement of Father Pfeiffer. So, that told me he's not convinced. Since he’s already brought him back once and he's still pushing him as valid, I won't be surprised that he's brought back again. I say this because even if he was valid, that's not enough. Because he has a schismatic record and any Catholic seeking ordination or consecration from schismatics incurs a suspension, it’s a punishment by the Church. Father Pfeiffer and I are in no capability of rehabilitating a suspended Orthodox bishop, it's not in our pay-grade, so to speak. That's for Rome to handle. But if that was the case, I'm sure with Epikeia and the situation of the Church something could be worked out but that's not all. It's the character of the person and the specific false, let's just put it lightly, specific false of fraud. That tells you don’t trust this person for something so serious as priestly ordination and consecration.
So, I ask your prayers, pray for good Father Pfeiffer. I consider him still a brother in the war but I’m not going to work with him at OLMC for now. My goal right now, my plan is I'm not going to join any group, not join any. I stay with the Catholic resistance, that's SSPX Marian Corps. But for a year or two I’m just going to take care of the scattered sheep and see where Our Lady wants thing to go. I don't know right now where. I'm not going to jump into anything. Sedevacantists are asking me to join them, Father Chazal in Cebu, Philippines, he wants me to go with him, Father Ed McDonald wants me to go to New Zealand with him. I’m not going anywhere. I’m just going to take care of the sheep who are on call for now and try to discern what God wants.
Obviously, a priest without a bishop is like a fish out water. We need a bishop. So, I’m just asking, well show me a bishop that’s holding exactly the line of Archbishop Lefebvre. Just show me one and I will gladly submit to him gladly, most gladly. But show me one. Maybe down the road we will be able to talk to some of the bishops and just say, look, alright, one bishop said publicly that the errors of Vatican II were the false interpretations of Vatican II and not from the council texts themselves and that's wrong. The text themselves are loaded with heresy. So, I would ask this bishop, your grace, your excellency, can you just correct this statement publicly? That's all. Correct these misunderstood statements publicly.
Same with the question of grace in the New Mass. Why can’t we just can't repeat what Archbishop Lefebvre taught? You heard that quote saying there is no grace in the New Mass and it's deadly. Look at the fruits, said Fr. Pulvermacher way back in the ‘80s, one of the fruits of the New Mass, death, sterility, loss of faith, closing up monasteries, seminaries, convents, death. It's not from God and it doesn't give grace. But does God give grace? Of course. Betty prayed her rosary at a New Mass, she doesn't know better, but she's just trying to obey the Sunday Commandment. She's praying her Rosary at the New Mass. Does she get grace through the New Mass? No. Does she get grace through praying the Rosary and lifting her heart to God? Of course, God is all good and He wants to give His graces. But He's not going to give it through that insult to Him, the abomination of desolation, the New Mass.
Just like a satanic priest who's lost the faith but he says a valid Mass, is their grace in that mass? No way, because the whole liturgy is an insult to God. The New Mass, I would argue, is worse than a satanic black mass because it's a modernist liturgy which incorporates Catholicism, Protestantism and Modernism as an entity and it does not give grave, it cannot and I'm just quoting Archbishop Lefebvre.
So, enough of tooting my own horn but I do ask your prayers and I do want to really say if any souls were harmed in all of this Ambrose roller coaster, I'm very sorry on behalf of OLMC because this does touch the Faith, it does touch the Faith, because the sacraments touch the Faith, whether they’re valid or not.
