Open Letter to All Present and Former Priests of the FSSPX Supporting the Lefebvrian Ideology|
Msgr. Lefebvre and the FSSPX have mislead those trusting them!
Most Reverend Sirs,
It was forty years ago on November 21st 2014 that Mgr. Lefebvre published the founding document of his society. Thenceforth, this day has been marked as the official date of foundation of lefebvrism. On the occasion of this remarkable anniversary, two important and interesting summaries have appeared on the internet in German – ‘Kurze kritische Untersuchung des Lefebvrismus’, and ‘Vierzig Jahre Lefebvrismus’.
The second gravest sin of Archbishop Lefebvre, his successors and his society – besides those related to the Church as described by the articles above – is the deception and misguidance of the benevolent brethren seeking the truth, the true Church, mass and sacraments of Christ. It started as the deception of those who wished to remain Catholic after having recognized the heresies of Vatican II and when these brethrens slowly passed away it continued in misguiding i.e. deceiving the younger or those awakening later and aiming at learning the truth by all means.
The lack of Christian spirit of the priests of the FSSPX, their deficient education and knowledge of the doctrine is best characterized by the April 18th Eleison Comments of Bishop Williamson: once more he puts forward arguments to justify his standpoint – a standpoint fully in line with that of Archbishop Lefebvre and the current leaders of the FSSPX – which have been answered and refuted several times by the writers of the articles mentioned above. Yet another proof of evidence known for long from old Catholic newspapers in relation to the Archbishop i.e. how deeply conceited Archbishop Lefebvre and the members of his society are besides being ignorant not only towards laity but their own fellow priests as well.
Till the expansion of modernism that is the denial of the supernatural every simple Catholic knew that the Catholic faith was of Divine origin, that the Catholic Church was founded by God and that the Catholic faith is, therefore, supernatural. The entire Catholic teaching is based on this fact, this foundation. For this reason a person cannot be Catholic without obeying the (legitimate) pope and the Magisterium in matters of faith and morals.
The wrong, moreover, heretic views of Archbishop Lefebvre have resulted in the FSSPX misleading the faithful for decades and literally killing their Catholic sense with their mistaken ideology! Those who as laymen would have never thought that their priests having considered and proclaimed themselves the sole champions of the truth have not only been unreliable and not true Catholics concerning doctrinal questions but just as liberal, modernist and apostate as the representatives of the Novus Ordo church! Archbishop Lefebvre established such a personal cult around himself that his words became worth more than any reasonable Catholic stands. Meanwhile, he gave but worthless phrases in response to the most ardent theological debates which his priests – what a shame for them – had been repeating uncritically as parrots for decades.
If someone teaches heresies it is of no further importance whether those amount to just one or two: under Divine Law he excommunicates himself from the Church anyhow and ceases to be Catholic. In that sense the FSSPX is by no way different from the Novus Ordo Church: both deny the supernatural nature of the Catholic Church!
Knowing the work of the Catholic faithful, the real „soldiers of the Church who started stirring following Vatican II and knowing how Archbishop Lefebvre demolished all the job of these apologists in order to expropriate tradition for himself and his society, there is an inevitable question arising: what would have happened had Lefebvre and the FSSPX chosen a different path and remain Catholic?
As far as I am concerned though, I hereby publicly sue all those current and former members of the FSSPX who have not yet realized the capital heresy of Lefebvrism leading to eternal damnation and whom thereby have played a voluntary part over the last few decades in doctrinal misleading and deceiving of the faithful putting at risk their salvation.
At the same time I express my deep gratitude to God that following my conversion i.e. in my beginner’s years as a Catholic, he allowed me to ‘attend school’ at the FSSPX and I am convinced that this was governed by His endless wisdom as it was but crucial for my normal i.e. gradual and firm growth in the Catholic faith.
However, I hereby apologize to all the readers of my webpage whom I have mislead by translating and publishing the erroneous views of the Archbishop.
