The new SSPX US District website has to be seen to be believed. Those of you who have listened to Fr. Girouard's Sunday sermon from last week (see the post below this one) will know what is going on here. Those of you who have not yet heard this important sermon need to do so as soon as possible. Fr. Girouard reports, quoting from the horses mouth, on the decision of the SSPX to hire a professional "PR company" to re-brand the Society (for which the SSPX paid good money!), helping it to leave behind it's "negative image" and be more "positive" about the Church.
In keeping with this, and as if further evidence were needed, take a look at the new-look SSPX.org. Let us take one example (there are more). Have a look at what they present as being the "mission statement" of the SSPX. It is to be found under the tab labelled "about". On that page we read:
"The spirit of the SSPX is essentially apostolic; it was designed by its founder to operate much like a missionary order, spreading the faith far and wide. This apostolate is today especially necessary considering the spread of atheism, agnosticism, and religious indifference.
The SSPX, to this end, seeks to draw souls closer to Christ primarily through the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, as well as through its preaching, its schools, its seminaries, and its other houses of religious formation.
All this can be summed up in our founder’s motto: “I have believed in love,” that is, in the love of Christ."
Can you spot what's going on here? This could be describing any of the 1001 pre-Vatican II religious congregation or Society. Where is the mention of fighting modernism; of fighting Vatican II; of the Crisis in the Church; of error and heresy and the need for to preserve souls from the errors of the Council; of the "conciliar Chruch"...? What has become of "operation survival"? It has been turned into "operation all-you-need-is-lurve"...!
This is just yet another clear piece of evidence, for those with eyes to see, of the strong will of the new SSPX to make itself as inoffensive to the world as possible! Pray that as many souls as possible will wake up, join the Resistance and thus ultimately be preserved from sliding, unsuspecting, into this spirit of desiring to be inoffensive to the world.
