    Pagliarani: Mass For Everyone - No NegotiationsThe Society of PiusX fights for the Roman Mass not only for themselves but unconditionally for every priest and for the universal Church, Father Pagliarani explained (transcript of the English January 15 talk in Paris on Traditiones Custodes below).PiusX doesn't simply want to receive a little side altar or to become part of an amphitheatre where everything else is also permitted. Pagliarani doesn't ask for particular privileges because “this mass is a right for us and for all souls without exception.”Therefore, PiusX doesn’t want to negotiate to obtain, little by little, some concessions so...

There are some Native attacks, the path gets more difficult.

    Does Francis Want to Strengthen the Society of Saint Pius X?If Francis were to restrict the Roman Mass, this would be an “abuse of power,” Bishop Schneider told @CatholicHack in a July 9 video interview.Forcing priests to preside the New Rite would be for Schneider a "violation of spirituality." He doesn’t believe Benedict XVI's claim that the Roman Mass [which is of apostolic origin] and the 1970 New Rite are “two forms” of the same rite [otherwise the New Rite would not have been called "new"]. Schneider calls them “two different rites" because there are "big differences."He explains that concelebration...

What has been most disturbing in all this is the reaction from Church Militant. We have been called “frauds” by Michael Voris, and this is particularly sad as I consider him a friend.

    Fr. Kevin Robinson is back in the news as his lawsuit against the governor of New Jersey moves forward on appeal. His lawsuit, one that I have sympathy for, has received nation-wide attention. He is seeking the right to preside over religious services despite the governor’s Covid-19 lockdown orders. At the bottom of the thread is a video of his Fox News interview with Tucker Carlson explaining the issues. While the cause behind the lawsuit is a worthy one, it is unfortunate that Fr. Robinson is the poster boy for this one. Fr. Robinson is a priest of the SSPX,...

    May I Attend SSPX Masses? Editor’s Note: The simplest answer is that, YES, Catholics may attend Mass and receive Holy Communion at the chapels of the Society of St. Pius X without incurring any penalty, stigma or sin. As this is an involved topic, one article would be too long to cover this subject matter. Hence we will be posting these articles as a series over numerous days. We will cover such issues as schism, “full communion,” valid and licit sacraments, true obedience, Vatican II, excommunication and more. If you are interested in these topics, please read on!
