Our parish had some pretty nasty encounters with the SSPX crowd here. Nasty, evil accusations against our very orthodox priest were thrown about. They would stand on the sidewalk and distibute letters containing all sorts of vile accusations. And then they would show up whenever there was a Trid mass (which we have on special occasions)and act like nothing was wrong. It didn’t seem to bother them that these priests they were smearing were the same ones offering the Mass.
Anyway, I have a feeling that there is a lot more going on here but that the Archbishop is trying to take the high road.
