While reading the SSPX news account on the Amazon Synod, I noticed a paragraph, where the SSPX admits to belonging to the Conciliar Church.
We know that God will never abandon the Church, that the gates of hell will not prevail, that Tradition is the solution. The Church is living her passion; like her Master she may appear disfigured and unrecognizable. Only faith can maintain hope and charity, and remain faithful to the Church by serving it in truth, justice and holiness. Human constructions are only for a time, they will pass like the figure of this world.
Archbishop Lefebvre recognized, that Conciliar Church is a different church.
"Such things are easy to say. To stay inside the Church, or to put oneself inside the Church - what does that mean? Firstly, what Church are we talking about? If you mean the Conciliar Church, then we who have struggled against the Council for twenty years because we want the Catholic Church, we would have to re-enter this Conciliar Church in order, supposedly, to make it Catholic. That is a complete illusion! It is not the subjects that make the superiors, but the superiors who make the subjects. Amongst the whole Roman Curia, amongst all the world's bishops who are progressives, I would have been completely swamped. I would have been able to do nothing.." (One Year After the Consecrations, July-August, 1989)
Archbishop Lefebvre wanted nothing to do with the Conciliar Church because it was not the Church Christ founded. It is NOT the Catholic Church.
The neo-SSPX took the faith, guidance, and wisdom, that Archbishop Lefebvre handed down, and buried it with him.
Thank you, to Fr. Hewko, who is holding the line of Archbishop Lefebvre.
