As the general chapter of the SSPX approaches, an open and signed letter has just been published. It aims to demand the cessation of the causes of the crisis that undermines the SSPX. This elective chapter is an opportunity, probably the last. The letter can be read on the dedicated website and signed online.
A Call for Fidelity
Ask the members of the General Chapter of the Priestly Fraternity Saint Pius X -
We are companions from the beginning, or yesterday's converts, fathers or mothers, priests, religious men and women, or simple faithful who wish to remain so; we applauded the 1974 declaration, also noting that modernist Rome had lost faith and was spreading deadly errors for souls more than ever.
We understood the state of necessity that led Archbishop Lefebvre to disregard the unjust condemnations given him by priestly ordinations and the coronations. We mourned with him the betrayal of those who now bear the name of rallies for abandoning the fight against the destruction of the faith, and for the reign of Christ the King. We understood that this state of necessity gave a truer jurisdiction than that resulting from a new code of canon law in opposition in many respects with our faith.
We loved to form a great family of families, peacefully united by the truth, and as Archbishop Lefebvre allowed this union, in spite of the disorder caused by Rome, so we want to reform this peaceful union by this same truth free from compromise with the error.
So it is with the strength of our convictions, with the right of those who participated to build materially and humanly this Fraternity, our Fraternity, with our material means, our time, our dedication, our religious commitment, priestly or that of some of our children, with our friendship and our fidelity to the best advice of its founder Monseigneur Lefebvre, that we ask to be heard as it is right that we are, like adult children have the right to be heard from their parents; it is with respect but firmly that we ask chapter members to hear our appeal and to read it publicly on this occasion:
That the proposals for partial regularization concerning confession, ordinations and marriages, proposals which were to be presented to a deliberative chapter before being accepted, according to the decisions of the General Chapter of 2012, not be accepted,
May the rule left by Archbishop Lefebvre become ours again, as it was decided in 2006: no practical agreement before agreeing on the doctrine, for the good of the Church,
May charity regain its rights in the fraternity, offering those who wish to return to the place they thought they should leave or have had to leave, and renewing the ties of friendship with the independent communities who have deemed it necessary to express their disagreement with the acceptance of practical agreements devoid of the doctrinal prerequisite,
That unity rebuilds itself in a common struggle against doctrinal errors and liberalism gradually invading our families and schools because if there is division, these years of unrest are one of the main causes.
