Former Opus Dei Member Will Be Ordained a Priest for the SSPX

Former Opus Dei Member Will Be Ordained a Priest for the SSPX

en.news – 6/29/18

Austria-born Father Johannes Regele (37) will be ordained a priest on June 30 for the Priestly Society of St Pius X (SSPX).

The ordination takes place in Society’s seminary in Zaitzkofen, Germany.

Regele, a molecular biologist, has been an un-married member of the Opus Dei for 13 years before turning to the SSPX in October 2014.

The Opus Dei is a neo-conservative organisation hostile to the SSPX and loyal to the current Pontiff.

  1. Is he already a priest?

  2. “The Opus Dei is a neo-conservative organisation hostile to the SSPX and loyal to the current Pontiff.”
    /
    Well chosen words! “Loyal to the CURRENT pontiff”.
    Which means, of course TRAITOROUS to his predecessors up to Pius XII.

  3. More on now-Fr. Regele from the German SSPX website (Google translation):

    Johannes Regele was born in 1981 in the city of Steyr in Upper Austria, where he also grew up and attended high school. After high school and military service, he completed a degree in molecular biology and worked for several years in the pharmaceutical industry. In parallel, he completed philosophical and theological studies in the personal prelature Opus Dei, of which he was from 2001 to 2014. From early youth he knew about the upheavals in the Catholic Church after the Council and was able to get to know the traditional Roman Mass. Even as a student he had the desire to become a priest; but his confessor advised him not to enter a modern seminary under the present circumstances, and encouraged him to follow his interest in science for the time being and to wait for the priesthood – the will of God would certainly be further substantiated. Over the years, Johannes Regele realized more and more clearly that a true apostolate will be fruitful only through an all-encompassing return to tradition in teaching and Christian life. Encouraged by some good friends of the diocesan and religious clergy, he eventually came to the decision to go to the Catholic priesthood in the Society of St. Pius X. In October 2014, he entered the Seminary of the Sacred Heart in Zaitzkofen.

  4. On a related note, this is an interesting development:

  5. Anthony, I could not get the Twitter link to load. May I ask for a very brief abstract of what it stated? Thanks!

  6. From Fr. Kevin Cusick’s Twitter page, the Tweet reads:
    “SSPX priest joins Archbishop Broglio and six others on retreat this month discerning active duty military chaplaincy”
    Here is the link to the AMS retreat webpage:

  7. Never mind. A retry worked. Who is the named priest?

  8. Is he a superior? The name looked familiar. Thanks.

  9. I know nothing beyond the Tweet and information at the AMS webpage. I wonder if it signals that AMS will be more solicitous about making the TLM available to servicemen and their families.

  10. On another related AQ thread I detailed info on a career Army friend who can run verify some, perhaps all, points.

    My friend worked strenuously to make the Latin Mass a weekly part of troops’ lives at Ft. Hood and it was spectacularly well received – until Broglio took over the Chaplain Corps! Broglio is viscerally opposed to traditionalist interests.
