SSPX: FrankenPope “Neither Worse nor Better” Than His Predecessors[!?]

SSPX: FrankenPope “Neither Worse nor Better” Than His Predecessors[!?]

en.news – 2/15/18
Pope Francis is neither worse nor better than the other popes after Second Vatican Council according to Father Fausto Buzzi, the assistant to the District Superior of the Society of St Pius X in Italy.

Talking to Il Giornale (February 9), Buzzi states that Francis labors in the same workshop set up by John XXIII (+1963). The goal of this workshop is according to Buzzi “the auto-demolition of the Catholic Church in order to build another”.

Buzzi claims that Francis’ words and actions only seem worse than those of his predecessors. But in reality this is not the case, “In substance the acts of Paul VI were much more serious than those of Francis.”

    Il Giornale: What still separates the Saint Pius X community from the Catholic Church?
    /
    Don Fausto Buzzi: It is necessary to point out that the Society of Saint Pius X is in no way separate from the Catholic Church. We are united to the Catholic Church and we never separated from Her, despite divergences with the authorities of the Church. We are not responsible for these divergences. Archbishop Lefebvre always used to say that he was condemned because of those very things for which the popes (particularly Pope Pius XII) used to praise him. Rome was the one who changed and, with Vatican II, she distanced herself from the centuries-old Tradition of the Church.

    IG: A parish priest once said to me: “A lot of people talk of schism, but they don’t have the theological competence of a Marcel Lefebvre”. Is that the case?
    /
    FB: A lot of people criticize or condemn the Society of Saint Pius X without knowing it and without understanding the serious reasons which place it in a hostile situation in relation to the ecclesiastical authorities. Today, many people, priests and lay alike, are beginning to wonder what is going on in the Church and are opening their eyes to the fact that those who were categorized as schismatics for many years are perhaps those who have remained the most faithful to the Catholic Church and, paradoxically, the most faithful to the papacy. In our seminaries, Archbishop Lefebvre wanted us to study the Summa Theologica of Saint Thomas Aquinas and the other classical works of theology. I assure you that it was a great grace for us to receive such a profound and solid formation.

    IG: What is your opinion of Pope Francis?
    /
    FB: For us, Pope Francis is neither worse nor better than the other Conciliar or Post-Conciliar Popes. He labors in the same workshop set up by John XXIII, that of the auto-demolition of the Catholic Church in order to build another – one which is in conformity with the liberal spirit of the world. I would go even further: the current Pope is not as responsible as Pope Paul VI. The latter made the Council, concluded it, and brought about all the reforms. And all of this is now the cause of the very grave crisis which we see in the Church. Of course, the actions and words of Pope Francis seem more serious than those of his predecessors. But this is not the case. Today’s media has the effect of amplifying things much more than in the past. In substance, however, the acts of Paul VI are much more serious than those of Francis.

    IG: However, Bergoglio seems to have made steps towards you, doesn’t he?
    /
    FB: He certainly hasn’t made any doctrinal steps towards us. However, he considers us as a “peripheral” reality. As such, we are the object of his benevolence. When he was Cardinal in Buenos Aires, one of our priests gave him a book about the life of our founder. He read it and remained seriously impressed by it. Perhaps this also contributed to his benevolence towards us. Many wonder why he was not so benevolent towards the Franciscans of the Immaculate who were truly in the process of embracing Catholic Tradition. On the contrary, in this case, disregarding mercy, he treated them harshly and with extreme severity.

    IG: Many consider you to be “extremists” of the Faith…
    /
    FB: Faith is a theological virtue, and a theological virtue can increase infinitely because its object is God Himself. Therefore, there are no limits to Faith. In this sense, being an extremist would be virtuous. That said, I could quote you the words of Our Lord when He said, for example: “Who is not with Me is against Me”. Or the words of Saint Peter: “There is no other Name [Jesus Christ] under Heaven by which we may be saved”. Tell me if these are “extremist” words. Then, if you think of the martyrs who died rather than betray their Faith, how do we judge them? Were they extremists? It seems to me that we are losing the sense of the Faith.

    IG: What do you think of the doctrinal debate surrounding Amoris Laetitia?
    /
    FB: You see, this question forces me to repeat what I have already said. Even though all the initiatives which aim to correct this document and to defend the indissoluble Catholic family sanctified by a Sacrament are praiseworthy, the true problem is nevertheless to be found elsewhere. Do you know where Amoris Laetitia is rooted? In one of the Council’s documents, Gaudium et Spes. Therefore, as I was saying to you earlier, the horrendous crisis in the Church is due to Vatican II. Vatican II is the DNA of this crisis. Do you think that we would have had the catastrophic Amoris Laetitia today if, instead of Gaudium et Spes, Pius XI’s encyclical Casti Connubii had been published? I don’t think so.

    IG: And what about the rehabilitation of Luther?
    /
    FB: What can I say? To rehabilitate the greatest heretic of history who secularized the entire Christian religion, who caused the Church to haemorrhage entire peoples, is both doctrinal suicide and an historical falsehood. The rehabilitation of Luther belongs to the ecumenical utopia of the past fifty years, a utopia which is leading Catholics to an apostasy which is no longer silent, but deafening. I recommend you read a new book on Luther which came out recently, The True Face of Luther. It is written by one of our priests, Professor of Ecclesiology at the Seminary of Econe. When you read this book you understand the absurdity of this supposed rehabilitation.

    IG: Do you see doctrinal reunification between yourselves and the Vatican as possible in the future?
    /
    FB: I am not a prophet. We hope that this will happen, especially for the salvation of so many souls who risk being lost for all eternity. But, if you allow me, I would like to tell you what we can do today in order to contribute to the triumph of Tradition in the Church. All of us – each Catholic, Bishop, faithful priest – all of us must return to the Catholic Tradition of all time. And no-one should fear having the impression of being against the authorities of the Church. Because, in fact, it is not going against them, but on the contrary it is the most effective means of helping them understand that we must return to Tradition, which is the sole and unique future of Holy Church.

  2. That is true, as it was Paul VI with his new Mass (Protestant service), JPII with his new code of Canon Law (which allows communion to be given to non Catholics) and ecumenical and gatherings, along with Pope Benedict XVI with his modernist relativism that paved the way for the abomination that we have sitting on the throne of Peter today. He didn’t just fall from the sky.

    I think only conservative liberals and blind Indult groups think the contrary, as for many of them, they seem to think that the crisis in the Church had only begun with this Pope, when in reality one only needs see that the apostasy was ushered in with the errors of the council and has continued ever since. One only needs to read the harsh words Archbishop Lefebvre had to say about Paul VI and JPII and their reforms to see the truth of the above statement. What is being set before us is only a logical consequence.

    Fr. Johaness Dormann in his well known book ‘theological Journey to Assis”, shows how JPII has made a complete system of his modernist ideology, which gave him the foundations for his apostasy from the faith.

    Contrary to what many conservative/Indult clergy want to believe, neither JPII, nor Paul VI, are to be regarded as ‘saints’ by any standards of Catholic theology. They, like the present apostate on the throne of Peter, were all truly modernist enemies of the faith, who died unrepentant of their apostasy and as a result where more than likely damned for it.

  3. I will add that the previous Conciliar Popes destroyed the Doctrinal fabric of the faith, this Pope has undermined the moral fabric of the faith.

    While, JPII might have appeared ‘conservative’ on moral issues, at the heart of it with his embrace of ecumenism and his modernist ideology he paved the way for the destruction of the faith on a doctrinal level. This pope with his modernist ideology has simply taken it to the next level and attack the moral fabric of the faith. However that moral foundation rests primarily on the doctrinal teachings of the Church. If the doctrinal foundations had not been destroyed by the previous modernist Popes, we wouldn’t have been able to have the radical moral destruction of the faith we are seeking with this Pope.

  4. I agree with Fr. Buzzi ! The Catholic Church is in an auto demolition mode since Vatican 2 ! I have often said to fssp and diocesan priests, that the SSPX is the only real Catholic Church left. In fact if it were not for Archbishop Lefebvre. There would be no Catholic Church ! You cannot call this ridiculous nonsense coming out of The Vatican today ,the One True Holy Catholic Church! It is a joke, just like making the Vatican 2 Pope’s Saints ! Fr. Buzzi was correct, Montini was a disgrace, plus how can you make anyone a Saint, with the homosexual track record he had when he was Pope. That is unless you are one also and you think homosexual activities in the Vatican is a Saintly thing to do. The pseudo Catholic Church of today needs to join with the SSPX and return to TRADITION, instead of pushing nonsense written 15 years by an Argentinian nobody and trying to pass it off as doctrine! Do they think we are all fools? God Bless the SSPX and Archbishop Lefebvre! Fr. Buzzi makes perfect sense !
