An Update:
Francis and the Society of St. Pius X

fellay-francis.jpg

The Society of St. Pius X, since 1994 headed by the intrepid Bp. Bernard Fellay, who considers himself the leader of Traditional Catholicism yet without even so much as a single significant theological contribution to back him up, has now released a statement on Jorge Bergoglio’s infernal exhortation Amoris Laetitia:

The Society’s reaction is entitled, “Enough to make one weep” — which about sums up all the SSPX has left at this point to put up against Francis’ in-your-face apostasy: tears, sobbing, and hand-wringing.

The Spanish-speaking “Resistance-SSPX” web site Non Possumus has published an internal letter of Fr. Franz Schmidberger, formerly the Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X (1982-94) and currently the head of the SSPX seminary in Zaitzkofen (Germany), in which he lays out the case for full canonical recognition by Modernist Rome under “Pope” Francis and responds to various objections.

The three-page letter, dated February 19, 2016, is entitled Überlegungen zur Kirche und der Stellung der Priesterbruderschaft St.

SSPX Bp. Fellay: Francis extends Faculties for Confession beyond ‘Year of Mercy’

The long-time leader of the Society of St. Pius X, Bp. Fellay

Looks like everything is going according to plan. Just as we predicted, as Francis opens a huge door for the “divorced-and-remarried” — unfortunately, it’s the door to hell — he is likewise being very “merciful” to the Lefebvrist Society of St. Pius X. Gotta keep those traditionalists happy in the face of such a big whopper as the “Apostolic Exhortation” just released.

On April 10, 2016, the SSPX Superior General, Bishop Bernard Fellay, announced during a sermon (full audio here) in Puy-en-Velay (France) that “Pope” Francis had told him at a recent meeting in the Vatican that he would extend the faculties he had given the SSPX to hear confessions validly, beyond the “Jubilee Year of Mercy”, which ends on November 20 of this year.

The Press Office of the “Holy See” has confirmed a newspaper report of an unannounced meeting that took place between “Pope Francis” and the Superior General of the Society of Saint Pius X, Bishop Bernard Fellay, on Saturday, April 2, at Vatican City. The Italian paper Il Foglio broke the story, quoting sources who said the meeting “was positive” and “understanding is good” between Fellay and Francis, whom Fellay had called “a genuine Modernist” in 2013.

According to Il Foglio, the discussions between the “Pope” and the Lefebvrian SSPX are moving towards a personal prelature model similar to that under which Opus Dei operates.

Public Relations Disaster for SSPX:
Bishop Fellay’s Epic Interview Fail

Tim Sebastian grills Bishop Fellay on “Conflict Zone”

There is no other way to say it: It’s an unmitigated disaster of colossal proportions for the Society of Saint Pius X.

In an interview for the aptly-named “Conflict Zone” program of the international German broadcaster Deutsche Welle, aggressive secular journalist Tim Sebastian sat down with SSPX Superior General, Bishop Bernard Fellay, to grill him on various issues from the accusation of anti-semitism to the Society’s bizarre understanding of papal authority. The result was as embarrassing as it was revealing, both about the SSPX in general and His Excellency in particular.

Francis Grants Jurisdiction to SSPX Priests to Hear Confessions & Grant Absolution during “Holy Year of Mercy”

Breaking News from the Vatican this morning: The apostate Argentinian layman Mr. Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope” Francis), has announced that for the upcoming jubilee year, the “holy year of mercy”, he is “excluding no one” and therefore expressly granting faculties (ordinary jurisdiction) to priests and bishops of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) to hear confessions and grant valid absolution.

Here are his exact words, taken from a translation of a letter he sent to the President of the “Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization” on Sept.

SSPX Bp. Fellay:

“We are on the Eve of Important Events”

The endless saga of talks and negotiations between the Lefebvrist Society of St. Pius X and the Modernist Vatican II Church continues. In late June, Bp. Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the SSPX, gave an interview to the French publication Present, the text of which was published in English by the SSPX U.S. District. You can read the interview in full at this link:

This interview comes on the heels of Bp. Fellay’s revelation that Rome has appointed him canonical judge of SSPX priests, and several months after the state of Argentina — the home country of Jorge Bergoglio, “Pope” Francis — recognized the Society of St.

Calls for Resignation

“We Cannot Accept It Any Longer”

French SSPX Families Demand Resignation of Superior General Bp. Fellay

Now there is absolutely no denying it: The Society of Saint Pius X is in great turmoil.

On Feb. 15, 2014, the French blog Avec L’Immaculée (“With the Immaculate”) published a lengthy letter written by a group of French SSPX traditionalists who call themselves the Familles Catholiques Fidèles, or “Faithful Catholic Families.” The letter is addressed to the current Superior General of the SSPX, Bp. Bernard Fellay, who has been in his position since 1994.

In this open letter, an unidentified number of “faithful Catholic families” petition Bp.

Here’s an explosive internet exclusive: The Restoration Radio Network has unearthed and broadcast a speech given by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre (1905-1991) on May 11, 1976 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in which he lays out the modernist heresy, its origins, and the beliefs of modernists which contradict Roman Catholicism. He exposes the Novus Ordo movement to establish a false religion rooted in Freemasonry and Naturalism, which solemnly began with the bogus Second Vatican Council in 1962.

SSPX Update

“Francis Talks Too Much”

An Interview with SSPX Superior General Bishop Bernard Fellay

The Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X, Bishop Bernard Fellay, has given an interview in which he discusses “Pope” Francis, the state of the Novus Ordo Church, and how the SSPX is currently engaging in its “resistance” against both. Conducted in French, the interview is available with English subtitles in the video above, but you can also read a full English transcript here:

Here are some highlights of what Bp. Fellay says in the interview:

  • On Francis: “I think that he talks too much” and “this is not a man of doctrine.”
  • On Francis’ controversial, erroneous, and heretical statements which he sometimes later “revises”: “I think that one of the most unfortunate things about these statements is that they have spoiled his credibility; they have taken away much of the credibility of the Supreme Pontiff, so that when he has to speak about important things, now or in the future, those statements will be put at the same level as the others.

SSPX Bishop Bernard Fellay:
Francis is a “Genuine Modernist”

Kansas City, Missouri (Oct. 12, 2013). The Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X, Bp. Bernard Fellay, has finally broken his silence and denounced the head of the Vatican II Sect, whom he believes to be the Pope of the Catholic Church, as a “genuine Modernist.” Fellay criticized Jorge Bergoglio, “Pope Francis”, for his erroneous and heretical theology, adding at one point that “we thank God, we thank God, we have been preserved from any kind of Agreement [with the Vatican] from last year.” He went on to ascribe this providential protection from entering into “full communion” with Rome to the fruit of the 2012 Rosary Crusade countless SSPX adherents and similar “resistance” traditionalists had participated in.

The SSPX War Continues:
Bp. Williamson Excoriates Bp. Fellay

Please Note: Novus Ordo Watch does not side with either Bp. Williamson or with Bp. Fellay. In fact, we reject the position of the Society of St. Pius X (whether that of Fellay or of Williamson) as at least doctrinally erroneous if not outright heretical, as absurd, as unworkable, as offensive to pious ears, and so forth, as some of the links below will demonstrate. We merely provide this information about the SSPX and Bp. Williamson’s latest salvo to keep our readers informed about the problems inside (and outside) of the Society, as a lot of good-willed people who seek to be true Catholics are entangled in it to some degree or another.

Stumbling At the Finish Line:
Another Look at the SSPX’s Illogical Stance on the Pope Question

Commentary by Francis del Sarto

The strange ecclesial soap opera that is the series of on-again, off-again negotiations between Benedict XVI and the Society of St. Pius X in 2012 took yet another curious turn in mid-September 2012, when the SSPX’s Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais revealed the contents of a confidential letter sent back in the summer by Benedict to Bishop Bernard Fellay, head of the Society.

According to Bp. Tissier:

On 30 June 2012 – this is a secret but will be revealed to the public – the Pope himself wrote a letter to our Superior General, Mgr.
