Hello from Munich!
« on: September 19, 2020, 05:30:02 PM »
After quite some time just "lurking" in the forum, I think it's time to finally say hello.

In recent years, I got more and more exposed to traditionalism and also attended an FSSP TLM a few times. Although this traditional form of Mass immediately felt to me to be the right and true form of celebration, I still clung to my NO parish mostly. Until recently we had a fairly conservative priest whom I deeply respected. I tried to explain to myself the deep crisis of the church with the usual excuses: The council was not implemented right, there was no break with tradition, etc.

With this priest now replaced with an utter progressive, this gave me the push to start attending TLM (FSSP) exclusively. Didn't talk to one of the priests there, yet, since I am still pondering whether this is the right place to be for me. In Munich, I have the luxury that a large SSPX priory is also nearby. I also consider going there, since FSSP - despite good intentions - is completely and utterly at the mercy of the rotten German episcopate.

Most likely I won't post that frequently. It has been quite helpful to me to follow the discussions other users have and just lurking. However, I hope I can contribute at times as well.

Thank you for introducing yourself, and welcome to the forum; I'm sorry that I didn't visit Munich; Southern Germany and Vienna when I had the money and opportunity to do so. I hope that you do contribute to the forum.
"The World Must Conform to Our Lord and not He to it." Rev. Dennis Fahey CSSP

"My brothers, all of you, if you are condemned to see the triumph of evil, never applaud it. Never say to evil: you are good; to decadence: you are progess; to death: you are life. Sanctify yourselves in the times wherein God has placed you; bewail the evils and the disorders which God tolerates; oppose them with the energy of your works and your efforts, your life uncontaminated by error, free from being led astray, in such a way that having lived here below, united with the Spirit of the Lord, you will be admitted to be made but one with Him forever and ever: But he who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit." Cardinal Pie of Potiers

Is this another way to ask "do you lift?" in Munich?  I see Tim Budesheim must.

I'm actually German/Austrian and have a common German word for a family name (which we mispronounce somewhat intentionally, but that is a funny family story going back years).  Unfortunately I've never learned German although I've puttered on Duolingo a bit.   I took a quick bus tour of Europe including the Oberammergau Passion play 20 years ago with my mom but I don't think we even passed by Munich.

[Matthew 8:26]  And Jesus saith to them: Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith? Then rising up he commanded the winds, and the sea, and there came a great calm.

[Job  38:1-5]  Then the Lord answered Job out of a whirlwind, and said: [2] Who is this that wrappeth up sentences in unskillful words? [3] Gird up thy loins like a man: I will ask thee, and answer thou me. [4] Where wast thou when I laid up the foundations of the earth? tell me if thou hast understanding. [5] Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?

Jesus, Mary, I love Thee! Save souls!

No welcoming of a German is complete without posting this.

LOL
You should have subjected him to the full treatment  ;D but he's probably seen it.
Funny thing is you wouldn't be here if it hadn't been for Kaiser Bill attacking
Belgium.

Welcome!
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

Welcome.  How fortunate for you to have the "problem" of choosing between SSPX and FFSP.  I have had only good experiences with both.  Even here in Canada I hear stories about how notorious the bishops of Germany are for lack of orthodoxy, so I can understand this being a major concern for you.  I pray for you to make a good decision and to grow in faith.
Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Thine.
