Tips for Mass and Receiving the Sacraments
We communicate to our readers this cautious advice regarding the updated rules for receiving the sacraments.
From the l´abbé Brühwiler (Fidélité Suisse) newsletter - French translation
Advice for the Mass and the reception of the sacraments.
First of all, two principles deserve to be mentioned, which should guide the reflection, speech and action of Catholics:
- The faithful have the right to priests at l´ordination indisputably valid and to receive sacraments that are indisputably valid and with dignity.
- "The Motu-proprio Mass is not the authentic Mass." (Bishop Tissier de Mallerais, Pentecost sermon 15.5.2016)
In detail, we advise you to follow the following guidelines:
1. the priest must certainly be validly ordained, namely by a Bishop consecrated in the rite before the Council.
2. The priest must be affiliated with a validly ordained Bishop or Superior General of faith in accordance with doctrine.
3 The priest must be honest and faithful to the anti-modernist oath to resist the errors of the last council, and therefore necessarily separated from the "conciliar Church".
4. The priest must reject the extraordinary form of the Roman Mass rite "authorized on 7.7.2007" as "not authentic" (Bishop Tissier de Mallerais),
i.e. remain separate from the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter etc.
The "Motu-proprio" Mass of 7.7.2007 is undoubtedly a mass of l´indult, i. e. the "exceptional character with special authorization" is maintained and already for this reason alone unacceptable to Catholics. We can assimilate the 'Messe motus proprio' to the Mass, which from d'octobre 1791, was celebrated by bishops and priests sworn in by the State in France, while priests faithful to the Church and therefore persecuted could only act in secret (or had to flee). The bravest of them secretly celebrated Holy Mass and gave the sacraments. Thus Jean-Marie Vianney (the future Holy Priest d´Ars) received in secret in a private house his first communion.
This treacherous oath of a part of the clergy of 1791 in France is comparable to the obligation of the post-conciliar clergy towards the Second Vatican Council and the "New Mass" of 1969.
Trust only in teaching that is consistent with the teaching of Christ and His faithful servants.
In times of difficult crisis, when the foundations of life have been attacked, begin to falter or even collapse, Catholics must limit their spiritual and material lives in all humility and confidence in the essential and the "necessary only".
He must not take from God, but accept in humility the trial permitted (or added?) by eternal Wisdom as a means of many graces of discipline, purification, sanctification and salvation of body and soul.
Since, following the last Council, the Holy Church has been chained, humiliated, occupied or dominated by dark and Masonic forces in the "Church of the Council", God's very good Providence has given Catholics a faithful successor to the Apostles and Prelates, in order to guarantee us in a state of extreme necessity an unbroken source of help for Christ's teachings.
Many of Bishop Marcel Lefebvre's abundant and blessed works have been translated into our language. The importance of all these sources is all the greater as the Vatican continues to speak and act under the influence of Satan's smoke, and Catholics are still required to listen to the oral and written traditions of the founder of the Society of Saint Pius X for their salvation. His vast legacy has become even more significant today as the doctrinal unity and concordance of the four auxiliary bishops consecrated by Bishop Lefebvre was broken in 2012.
This rupture had already begun years earlier and was made visible by the letter of 7 April 2012 from the three auxiliary bishops Bishop Tissier de Mallerais, Bishop Williamson and Bishop de Galarreta to the General Council of the Society of Saint Pius X. The rupture was then completed by the expulsion of Bishop Williamson in October 2012, the visible result of a certain division of minds within the Society of Saint Pius X.
Whoever, seven years ago, agreed with the exclusion of the oldest l´évêque and still wants to be, must now sympathize with new family members, especially with several priests ordained in the Novus Ordo (only) as well as with a "conservative" and now retired diocesan bishop who is faithful to the Council, friend of Pope Benedict XVI and who, in the sense of Pope Francis, wants to contribute to the integration of the Society of Saint Pius X. Bishop Huonder's thinking about the "Council" and the "new Mass" is shaped by modernism. It is incompatible with the attitude of Bishop Marcel Lefebvre, incompatible with the main reasons for the existence of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Pius X.
Unfortunately, shortly after 1991, the leaders took a new direction, even if it only seemed slight. They strive to constantly approach modern Rome in order to gradually achieve "ecclesial and canonical normalization". In short: for years, we dreamed of a "unity without truth" and even today. The enthusiasm of the leaders of the Fraternity of St. Pius X for such a project was already immense in the spring of 2001, then again in the spring of 2012: During the current third attempt under Pope Francis - more and more blinded priests and believers seem to be l´espérer - the project should be able to succeed...
Let us return to Bishop Lefebvre: The mission of the Prelate at the end of the 20th century was so significant that the words of Saint Paul can also be applied to it: "I remind you, brothers, of the Gospel that I proclaimed to you, that you received, in which you persevered, and by which you are saved, if you keep it as I proclaimed it to you; otherwise, you would have believed in vain. First of all, I have transmitted to you what I have received" (1 Cor 15:1ff.). A deviation from the teaching of Saint Paul therefore means a deviation from the teaching of Christ. The same can be said of the faithful servant of the faith and of l´Eglise Bishop Lefebvre: a deviation or a desire to correct his theological criticism of the last Council and the "New Mass" means a deviation from Christ's teaching.
Since the last Council, the Catholic faithful has been confronted with this painful situation in which the ecclesiastical authorities (Pope, bishops, priests) transmit to them contents that are not in accordance with Christ's teaching. All those who wanted to remain faithful to the faith with Bishop Lefebvre had to learn, from 1970 onwards, to understand, with much pain and sacrifice, what it means for daily Catholic, family and professional life to no longer be able to obey ordinary authority, to no longer be able to obey it. For obedience must also be guided by the truth. Authority is at the service of faith, at the service of justice. That is why Saint Thomas Aquinas says: "The mother of obedience is justice".
There must be no contradiction between Christ's teaching and what a servant of Christ (pope, bishop, priest) teaches. Otherwise, the consecrated person does not speak and act as a servant of Christ. Such an example was the Motu Proprio of Pope Benedict XVI of 7.7.2007 as well as the ambiguous and misleading (surprisingly simultaneous) statement of the Superior General of the Fraternity of Saint Pius X. The papal decree and the comments of the FSSPX repeatedly violate truth and justice. C´est as well as, to cite an example, a man rightly complained on 8.7.2007 to a priest who, instead of a sermon, had issued the press release of the General House of the Society of Saint Pius X of 7.7.2007: "Qu´est - what does that mean?!". The awake Catholic was therefore able to realize in the summer of 2007 that the FSSPX had reached an agreement, a definite compromise with Rome. With the 2007 Motu Proprio, the Fraternity of St. Pius X moved on to the "Cardinal Ratzinger's Way of 1988", a path that is none other than that of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, whose basic practical attitude still seems to be that of 1988: "L´essentiel c´est the traditional Mass !"
Unfortunately, only nine years after the Motu proprio, especially in Bishop Tissier de Mallerais' Pentecost sermon of 15 May 2016, we were able to hear these words that were incomprehensible to "traditionalists": "The Motu proprio Mass" n´est not the real Mass." Then n´accordons no faith in the Motu proprio of July 7, 2007, since its accomplishment n´est neither in accordance with the teaching of Christ, nor in accordance with the adjustments of his servant Mgr Marcel Lefebvre.
