February 2002 - District Superior's Letter

February 01, 2002
The relaxation of the lenten observance was a cause for sorrow for Pope Ben XIV in 1741; what would he say today? The observance of Lent is the badge of Chrisitian warfare where the Christian advances in the spiritual life by means of intellectual and bodily mortification. Pray for the priests of Campos who have accepted a practical agreement with Rome; details are discussed herein.

October 2001 - District Superior's Letter

The attack on the Twin Towers should be viewed as a punishment from God. Our liberal western nations are guilty of many sins. These sins of our nations need to be atoned for. God is sending us a message namely to do penance or you'll all likewise perish either in this life or the next. God doesn't bless an America or a Canada or an England that turns its back on him.

In these relations with Rome and with offers of a practical solution, rumors and other false information circulates because we pay attention to it. In this letter the question as to why we have relations with Rome at all is answered. During Lent pray and offer up sacrifices not only for the Society but for the Church.

The crux of this criisis is the replacement of the supernatural with the natural; that is, it is a battle against naturalism. Now, the fight for Tradition is a supernatural battle and that necessitates supernatural weapons.

30th anniversary of the Society. An important apostolate of prayer for priests is being promoted and you are strongly encouraged to join. Priests are in serious need of your prayers. Mass stipends are now 15.00$. The spirit of Advent is one of truly preparing for Our Lord's coming at Christmas.

Fr. Violette replaces Fr. Emily as district superior. SSPX pilgrimage to Rome a great success and spurs new talks with Rome. A declaration "Dominus Jesus" has been published by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith; it is flawed. Pope surrounded by 1500 bishops entrusts himself to Mary but doesn't consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart.
