Coming Soon: Unilateral Recognition of the Society of St. Pius X??
Commentary by Eric Gajewski
This just in from Dici.org: "Bishop de Galarreta gave a conference in Bailly, near Versailles, on January 17, 2016. He exposed the present situation in the Church and informed his audience of the present state of the relations between Rome and the Society of St. Pius X. He directed the Society of St. Pius X’s commission of theologians during the doctrinal discussions with Rome from 2009 to 2011. Here are the most important extracts from his conference, transcribed by DICI...
"In the second part of his conference, and beyond the proposals of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Bishop de Galarreta publicly confided that he thinks the pope may soon confer a status on the Society of St. Pius X:
“I think, and this is the other aspect of things, that this pope who tells anyone who will listen that we are Catholic, who says and repeats that the Society is Catholic, that we are Catholic, will never condemn us, and that he wants our ‘case’ taken care of. I think– and he has already started down this path – that when he sees that we cannot agree with the Congregation of the Faith, I think that he will overreach any doctrinal, theoretical, practical condition, or any condition whatsoever… He is going to take his own steps towards recognizing the Society. He has already begun; he is simply going to continue. And I am not saying what I desire but what I foresee. I foresee, I think that the pope will lean towards a one-sided recognition of the Society, and that by acts rather than by a legal or canonical approach.”
"Bishop de Galarreta admitted that 'this de facto recognition would have a good, a beneficial effect: it is a rather extraordinary apostolic opening, and it would have an extraordinary effect.' But he adds that there would then be two risks: that of creating an internal division and that of conditioning our preaching in certain circumstances. And he wondered: 'It would take an extraordinary wisdom and prudence, a very great firmness and clarity. Are we capable of this?'" READ FULL REPORT HERE
TradCatKnight Commentary: We first need to establish some baselines for the basis of this argument. Vatican II nor "Pope Francis" are the basis for the norm of Catholic orthodoxy. The Council and Francis are not Catholic objectively speaking, therefore, any unilateral recognition is absolutely frightening. In fact, it truly shows just how close we are to the formal schism as this is only another deceptive move on the part of Rome which will only open the floodgates of the modernists into overrunning mainstream Society chapels! As if (in many cases) the mainstream SSPX churches weren't bad as it is....it will only get that much worse. In addition, pay close attention to propaganda as it relates to Francis' health as his NWO world tour continues. Once you see this (most likely in summer) the time is ripe for the False Prophet to show himself in Rome (look for civil unrest in Europe as well as a sign). Inside information has antipope Francis bailing out in Argentina this summer.
Do I need Modernist Rome (who is not keeping the Faith) at this point to recognize me as Catholic? Answer, absolutely not nor would I want them to because this would only confuse the faithful. Sadly, you will see all the pseudo traditionalists get all "gitty" over this. The blind cannot see straight. What is the proper response by the SSPX? They ought be mentioning publicly how they are awaiting Rome's conversion back to the Faith but since they have left Archbishop Lefebvre's real position this is not going to happen. They ought be crying out for Rome's repentance (removal of Vatican II Revolution; new mass included) but instead they will play the diplomatic game. It wont help them; the Neo-SSPX is already run (leadership) and overrun (attendees) by cloaked liberals and modernists playing pussyfoot with Tradition. This is what happens when you compromise and go gray when Archbishop Lefebvre made it very clear as to this black and white crisis we are in. Eagles can spot the wolves, foxes and rabbits from a long ways away but the Neo-SSPX do not have the eyes any longer to see clearly. Keep in prayer. Conservatism is not the answer.
