The most important aspect of any institution is the end for which it was made. The Society of Saint Pius X has a supernatural goal, that of the salvation of souls. In a finite world, the eternal fate of immortal souls is its main concern. The Society wishes to act as an instrument in the hands of God to fulfill His holy will - the propagation of the priesthood to provide the sacramental means to unite souls with Him, and by this union, to be eternally happy with Him in Heaven.
There is no more important message than this: that God became man for us and died on the Cross out of love for us. The Catholic Faith, therefore, gives human life a purpose. It also shows the path that leads to this goal and gives us the means to that end.
The Society is a living testimony to the fact that this faith can still inspire people today. As many Catholic churches close their doors, the Society is building new churches, schools, and seminaries all over the world. Every Sunday, their chapels fill with believers of all ages, including many young people and families.
Not a few Christians have found their way back to a zealous Christian life and, at the same time, to inner peace and joy. They also become apostles themselves, bearing witness to the Catholic Faith in their daily lives and leading others to the Faith through their prayer, sacrifice, and example.
The SSPX firmly believes that the Catholic Faith changes individual lives as well as society; that the Faith promotes order, justice, culture, and peace; that it offers real and lasting happiness. Despite the widespread unbelief rampant throughout the world today, the SSPX, through the priesthood, continues to unfold and distribute the treasures of Catholic Tradition. This courageous and unrestrained gift of self for the glory of God and the good of souls constitutes the core value and motivation of the SSPX.
