200 British SSPX Faithful Decry Union with Catholic Church in Open Letter to Bishop Fellay ^ | J. Christopher Pryor

Posted on 06/14/2012 2:01:09 PM PDT by jcpryor

Over 200 followers of the Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX) have signed a letter publicly castigating Bishop Fellay for dealing with the Pope and the Catholic Church. Below is the public open letter being circulated by the SSPX parishioners. It should be noted that the letter is signed by a founder of the International Third Position and various members and organizers of a pro-Bishop Williamson internet forum that is tolerant of antisemitism. This letter may not be as spontaneous and innocent as it purports to be.

An Open Letter to Bishop Fellay from some concerned faithful of the SSPX District of Great Britain


Your Excellency,

We wish to approach you, in a spirit of charity, in order to bring before you certain concerns that we wish to address to you as the Superior General of the SSPX. For some time now we have been hearing reports regarding a practical arrangement with Rome. We are concerned at the potential danger that this might pose to the integrity of the Faith—which is our Faith, and the Faith of our children and grandchildren.

Rome's intentions regarding an SSPX agreement

Several high-ranking SSPX clerics (Frs. Pfluger, Schmidberger and others) have stated that Rome is prepared to give the SSPX “carte blanche”—in other words, to accept the SSPX as it is, without compromise. However, in contradiction to that we have the published words of several high-ranking individuals in Rome, including the Vatican Press Spokesman, who make it clear that they view this as a question of the acceptance by SSPX of the “Vatican II” version of religion in order to achieve a ‘return to Rome’.
