BRAVE PRIESTS


As a number of you will know, Fr Fernando Altamira is a young Argentinian priest of the Society of St Pius X, working in Bogotá, the capital city of Columbia in South America, who several months ago took a clear and public stand against the betrayal of the Faith and of Archbishop Lefebvre’s Society by Bishop Fellay and his team in Menzingen, Switzerland. Walking out of the Society’s Priory to found an alternative parish nearby, Fr Altamira was followed by the large part of his previous parishioners. As I was able to observe in mid-April, he is a pious, intelligent and hard-working priest, popular with the people. For his pains he is being “excluded” from the SSPX.

He wrote to Bishop Fellay, protesting that his “exclusion” is invalid. He sent a copy of his well-argued protest to a veteran priest of the SSPX who understands too well how the modern world operates to be fooled by Bishop Fellay. Here are Fr Jean-Michel Faure's wise comments:-

“It is obvious that there is a problem in the Society of St Pius X. Liberals took control, and they want to be integrated into the structure of modernist Rome. And, as Fr Pfluger has said, they want to expel all anti-liberals opposed to their Operation Suicide. One more proof of the on-going Recognition of the SSPX by Rome is the churches that certain bishops of France offer to Bishop Fellay, for the Requiem Mass of Fr Lagneau, for the Jubilee Mass of Fr Marziac, on various occasions the Basilica of Lourdes, the Confirmations in Corsica, and so on.

“Secrecy is the mode of operating worthy of a liberal politician who wants to bring his electors around to a goal directly opposed to what he had promised in order to get elected. By a series of ambiguous statements skilfully graded to advance little by little, the politician brings the great majority of his followers to accept the opposite conclusion to what they were convinced of to begin with. It is Macchiavellian deceit, lying and hypocrisy, pure and simple. For this Superior General the end justifies the means, and to attain that end he does not hesitate to take positions repeatedly condemned by Archbishop Lefebvre. What would the Archbishop say of him and his two Assistants ? That they are idiots, childish, naive and disobedient, that they are making the Society commit suicide and that they are betraying the fight for the Faith. And they are going to hand over to the modernists in Rome the fruits of so much generosity and so many sacrifices made by the faithful.

“The modernists in Rome have never backed down on their demands that we accept the Second Vatican Council and the legitimacy of the New Mass. In 1975 the Rector and professors of Écône advised the Archbishop to accept the Council in order to save the Mass, and they ended up rebelling and quitting the Seminary in August of 1977. Today the three ringleaders in Menzingen go so far as to accept the legitimacy of the Lutheran Mass. As the three of them say, the Society’s reluctance to go along makes us very annoying to our “new friends in Rome”, while to wait for the conversion of Rome is unrealistic, as far as they are concerned. For sure and certain God alone can clean up this situation, totally different from the situation of the Church when it was reformed by St Pius V. Like the Captain of the Titanic, Bishop Fellay and his headquarters will bring the Society’s Operation Suicide to a successful conclusion. Blind leaders of the blind. But anyone who is not blind must resist this suicide, and keep the Faith.”

If only the Society had more priests as clear-sighted and courageous as Fr Altamira and Fr Faure !

Kyrie eleison.


When liberals destroy,
how much we need Priests clear in mind,
and brave in word and deed !

The "promise to respect" as Church law the New Code of Canon Law is to respect a number of supposed laws directly contrary to Church doctrine.

More idiotic comments from H.E.  It appears that only neo-resistance priests are pious, intelligent, and hard-working, or at least, it is important to initially describe them as such in order to justify their actions.

Unfortunately, there is little evidence of the good Father's "intelligence" in his response to his expulsion from the SSPX.  Rather, it appears that he cut and pasted from the resistance blogs to form a childlike response to the canonical adjudication.

Once again, as serious as the matter is, +Williamson's feigned outrage gives us a brief moment of humor.  Can you imagine that a priest might be expelled from the SSPX for abandoning his post and starting an independent chapel?  What can +Fellay be thinking?  And then to invoke a "state of need" as a basis for refuting the expulsion?  I don't see much evidence of intelligence here, at least not of the knowledge one might expect he took away from his formation

H.E's. intellectual dishonesty concerning the statutes of the SSPX and canon law (both versions) is quite pathetic.  Of course, the good Father at the center of this bases his disobedience on +Fellay's insistence on "wanting" to "Join tHE STRUCTURE OF MODERN ROME".  It makes no difference on the reality of the situation, nor of +Lefebvre's "wanting" to join the Sturucture of Modern Rome. It is now the neo-resistance norm to turn to disobedience of valid authority based on the individual priest's ascertation of what his Superior desires, regardless of the morality of that particular desire.

One can only look at this priest's stance against the Rosary Crusade to understand how Satan has taken root in these priests and this Bishop of the neo-resistance.

No duh.

Has old age taken over +W?

Or has he simply let himself be blinded by his agenda?

If you abandon your post, of course you'll be tossed out of the Society.  He had a chapel, he had a priory to live at, why did he go and found "an alternative parish"?

Dumb.

His name provides a clue...

He's got a high view of things.
