Carmelite Nuns oppose Menzingen - Even more evidence of "Profound Unity"...!

Posted by The Editor on March 9, 2013 at 12:20 PM

The traditional Carmel of St. Joseph, in Brilon Wald, Germany was founded some 30 years ago as a daughter house of the Carmel of the Sacred Heart in Quiévrain, Belgium. Some time ago this German Carmel made clear to Fr. Schmidberger their complete opposition to any agreement with an unconverted modernist Rome. The Carmel has now officially disassociated from the German District of the SSPX.

The actions of the German District have been neither generous nor charitable. Having already taken away their extern, itself a reprehensible act which potentially placed the enclosed sisters in a very precarious position, the German District is now trying to leave them without a chaplain. Please keep these Carmelite nuns in your prayers.

Thanks be to God for this grace! I will certainly pray for the Carmelites of St. Joseph Brilon Wald in Germany. As a tertiary of Carmel myself I feel very united in prayer with them and grateful to them for their courageous example of Faith.
There are a growing number of tertiaries of Carmel in Australia who have joined the ranks of the resistance - may we all prove to be faithful children of the Blessed Virgin Mary - Queen of Carmel!

Ridiculous, they don't want the SSPX but want to take advantage of it's priests.

"Take advantage of its priests" - are you serious? They spend their lives in prayer and sacrifice for the priesthood, and this step these wonderful nuns have taken is an example is an heroic testament to their Faith. Whereas the bullying tactics of the German District are shameful.

Your statement ignores the motive for the holy Nuns action.
These courageous Sisters stood up to Msgr. Fellay's decay toward conciliarism.
Through God's grace, may they continue to receive the Sacraments, preferably thought the SSPX-Resistance priests.
