I haven’t been able to track down the entire news article, but the headline alone was disappointing. The SSPX leaders continue to shoot themselves in the foot, and in so doing, endanger the reconciliation process with Rome. And, the rhetoric does not help incardinated groups such as the FSSP in the ongoing quest by Traditionalists to have the universal indult for the Tridentine Rite! I am so frustrated! The Vatican holds out an olive branch, and the SSPX ratches up the level of criticism. Sigh. I cannot for the life of me understand why the leaders of the SSPX seem to be determined to bring about the demise of the Latin Mass. I know they do not see it that way. But the truth of the matter is that many Catholics are desirous of returning to the Tridentine Rite, and are praying for Pope Benedict XVI as he contemplates the best course of action to meet the needs of all Traditional Catholics. Meanwhile, we keep hearing what is becoming increasingly more like a fishwife’s shrill ranting emanating from the SSPX. Certainly the SSPX leadership ought to show respect and courtesy to our Pope; if only to demonstrate respect for the Papacy. They continue to lose credibility with Catholics who are on the fence regarding the Traditional Mass and the theology which accompanies it. I am not nearly as hopeful as I was a month ago.
