Statement by Fr Paul Morgan, District Superior, concerning “The Recusant.”

Tuesday, 28 May 2013 11:22

“The Recusant” presents itself ‘as an unofficial SSPX newsletter, fighting a guerrilla war for the soul of Tradition.’ This ‘guerrilla war’ is now coming out into the open in that a signed ‘Letter of Entreaty’ has appeared on its website which attacks the Society in no uncertain terms. Addressed to ‘Fr Morgan and the Clergy of the British District,’ the open letter, dated 21st May 2013, accuses the Society of having deviated from its essential mission of fidelity to Catholic Tradition and opposition to Modernism due to the betrayal of its liberal leadership!

Ignoring the fact that there has not been a false deal with modernist Rome, and in spite of his public withdrawal in Ireland of the questionable April 2012 ‘Doctrinal Declaration,’ the dialectical letter pretends there is no option for us now but to show true leadership and to follow its proponents in seceding from the Society!

In recent months, such as in his last Letter to Friends and Benefactors and his recent conferences in Ireland, Bishop Fellay has clarified that he does not accept the legitimacy of the New Mass nor the errors of Vatican II nor the ‘hermeneutic of continuity’ which pretends to reconcile them with Tradition.

With regard to the ‘Letter of Entreaty,’ Bishop Fellay has stated that “the paragraph which claims to prove everything, that is of ‘my April (2012) declaration,’ is wrong and false from the beginning to end; there is not one phrase which presents correctly what I have written…Poor people who are so misled by their mistrust.” Hence, rather than boycotting the Superior General’s forthcoming visit, I would urge the concerned individuals in particular to attend Bishop Fellay’s conferences and to consider carefully what he has to say.

Whilst acknowledging the serious issues surrounding the Society’s negotiations with the Roman authorities, it is excessive and indeed offensive to claim ‘that the SSPX is now a sinking ship’ which is beyond repair. Far from abandoning the legacy of Archbishop Lefebvre, we need staunch clergy and faithful to help keep the Society faithful to its providential mission, for the glory of God and the salvation of souls.

May the Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us!

Saint Pius X, pray for us!

Father Paul Morgan

District Superior

    JUDITH’S LITTLE
    BROTHERS

    I’ve been big sister
    All my life
    Seen trials and tears
    Much love and strife.

    I took some hits
    The biggest and tall
    For the love of them
    My siblings small.

    But once again
    I’m called to fight
    For little brothers
    With all my might.

    My little brothers
    Fathers they be
    Need sisters older
    Judiths like me

    To walk behind
    While malcontents scorn
    And praise these priests
    And sound the horn

    To give support
    As they help others
    And back them up
    My cassocked brothers.

    But how you hate
    You say to me
    These other Christs
    That live for He.

    With that my hair
    Stands up on end
    For born a Catholic
    I will defend.

    You better run
    You better hide
    To bully His Blood
    I won’t abide.

    With sacrifice
    And daily Mass
    Big sister, I
    Will kick your…

    …as I was saying
    To all them others —
    Don’t mess with Judith’s
    Little brothers!!

  2. you know I have long been disgusted with the myriad of websites and blogs that several independent trads put up attacking everyone adn everything, especially slander towards priests and bishops. – you can find them if you look a little but if I were to list any of them here that would be equal almost to listing porn sites. Because internet slander and false accusations are the religious version of porn. What I want to say is that I am praying for SSPX and the Bishop Fellay to remain above all this and continue to communicate with the “class” and dignity we’ve come to expect from SSPX.

  3. Thank you, morningprayer, very well said.

    May God bless and keep the SSPX and all bishops and priests, in His care.

    A Prayer for Priests-

    O Jesus, Eternal Priest, keep Thy priests within the shelter of Thy Sacred Heart, where none may touch them.
    Keep unstained their anointed hands, which daily touch Thy Sacred Body.
    Keep unsullied their lips, daily purpled with Thy Precious Blood.
    Keep pure and unworldly their hearts, sealed with the sublime mark of the priesthood.
    Let Thy Holy Love surround them from the world’s contagion.
    Bless their labors with abundant fruit, and may the souls to whom they minister
    be their joy and consolation here and their everlasting crown hereafter.

    Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us: obtain for us numerous and holy priests. Amen.
