Menzingen's reaction to the letter from 37 Priests

Posted by The Editor on March 8, 2013 at 4:45 PM

Originally the official Menzingen "party line" was that the letter was a fake. Now that they have started punishing priests, they have as good as admitted to the world that teh letter is genuine. In any case, as others have pointed out, the arguments contained in the letter are what matters, not who wrote it. The message, not the messenger.


Bp. Fellay talks about "revolutionaries" whose only desire is to harm the SSPX and to attack it and weaken it. The District Superior of France issued a communique attacking the priests, a translation of which can be read here. Nowhere are the arguments of the letter refuted, nowhere are it's contents addressed.


One of the three priests, Fr. Rioult, has written a reply, which can be read in translation here.

It is a fake in the sense that it was not signed by 37 SSPX priests of the French district. In fact one of the "three" was from Belgium not France.
