**Before I proceed, I have never attended an SSPX Chapel, I am what was called in pre-Motu Proprio days an “Indulter”**. However, we would be remiss not to acknowledge the dedication of Archbishop Lefevbre towards the Mass of Ages. Without him (and many others like him) they would have buried Catholic Tradition. There would be no 1983 “indult”, no “Ecclesia Dei”, and no “Summorum Pontificium”. Tradition needed a toe-hold, it survived, and will thrive, and this ecumenism business will eventually fade, as it’s not of the Church. It’s a strange double standard when Protestants are called “Seperated Brethren”, and men like these (missioner bishop in Africa for most of his life) are called “Schismatic” for trying to remain Catholic as it was always practiced. Let us Pray for the Soul of this brave man.

We do not want to break away from the Church; on the contrary, we want the Church to continue. A Church which breaks away from her past is no longer the Catholic Church. We are certain that the truth will come back. It cannot be otherwise. The Good God does not abandon His Church. ( Archbishops Homily, Geneva, May 15, 1978)
