Fr. Raphael Arizaga, O.S.B., Espouses the Red Light Position
Fr. Raphael Arizaga, O.S.B., Prior of the San Jose Monastery in Columbia wrote an article called “Friendship with the New-SSPX” that has been published in the April 2016 issue (see p. 17) of the Catholic Candle. In this article, Fr. Raphael espouses the red light position. Here is what he concludes:
“Uncompromising Catholics must consider this as a ‘red light’ to attending the Masses of all SSPX priests because they all cooperate with our Lord’s enemies at least by being members of the new-SSPX and also by softening their opposition to SSPX liberalism to the lower level tolerated by their SSPX superiors. Any SSPX priest who believes that he is speaking out strongly, loudly and continually against the liberalism of his SSPX superiors, is fooling himself.
“Any priest who fearlessly stands against SSPX liberalism can count on our help amplifying his voice by which he opposes his superiors’ liberalism. Then he will soon no longer be in the (so-called) internal resistance because he will see how fast the iron fist of Menzingen crushes and expels him as soon as he begins to really make a difference by standing fearlessly against his superiors’ liberalism.
“At that time, uncompromising Catholics will have a ‘green light’ to attend his Masses because then he also will be an uncompromising soldier of Christ the King.”
So true! And how sad it is for those yellow lighters who fight only half-heartedly by the fact that they either continue to assist at Masses offered by such compromising priests or give the thumbs up to others to continue doing so.
The yellow light position has been a scourge in that it has helped debilitate the growth of the Resistance.
May the yellow lighters open up their eyes soon and see “red”.
