Pope Francis cancels the Motu Proprio Summorun Pontificum

The news broke as we were ready to put the final touch to this weekly bulletin.

Pending further comments from the SSPX Headquarters, let us quote the official SSPX news agency FSSPX.NEWS, which stated on June 3, 2021:

"We can only reaffirm what that such a restriction on the Motu Proprio of Benedict XVI, would be perfectly “abusive,” and since it would be directed against the common good of the Church, it would be “null in itself.” Although the Society of Saint Pius X may not feel concerned, “it would deeply regret such a limitation, because it would be a step back on the way back to Tradition which would delay the solution of the crisis of the Church.”

However, this new persecution against the Traditional Mass gives us proof that Archbishop Lefebvre was right when he said that the Old Mass cannot coexist with the New Mass.  The New Mass was made to replace the Old Mass and what it carries, that is to say the two-thousand years of Tradition of the Church.  It was replaced by a completely New Mass which express a new faith, which is not Catholic: "lex orandi, lex credendi".
 

One more reason to read the Ottaviani Intervention, which is the book of this week!

SSPX Toronto New Church Campaign

Second collection for the New Church project  on Sunday July 25

Back in 2019, we launched a fundraising campaign for a new church for the SSPX in Toronto. Our church in Etobicoke was already too small before the pandemic. But, since the beginning of the Covid-19 restrictions, we have experienced a steady growth, which makes the need for a bigger church even more critical. The whole project has been entrusted to the Infant Jesus of Prague and to St. Joseph.  Please join with the novena prayers.  If you wish to contribute, click below.

Dress code

With the summer, it is important to remind everyone that a church is a sacred place and that our adoration of God must be in spirit, but also in the respect shown by our modesty, that is the virtue in our actions and dress. We genuflect to adore Jesus present in the tabernacle, and we dress appropriately for church to show respect for the house of God.  Men and women should dress with modesty, that is clothing that is not transparent, clinging to the body or too short (not covering the knees while sitting, or the upper arms and lower than the base of the neck), and with proper decorum, for example no T-shirts or shorts for men or pants for women, wearing our “Sunday’s best” on Sundays, head coverings, etc. There is a reminder of this code posted at the entrance of all our churches.

Your cooperation in following these rules is a clear expression of your love and respect of the house of God, and of Jesus-Christ present in the Blessed Sacrament.
