In the great and painful confusion that currently reigns in the Church, the proclamation of Catholic doctrine requires the denunciation of errors that have made their way into it and are unfortunately encouraged by a large number of pastors, including the Pope himself.
The Society of Saint Pius X, in the present state of grave necessity which gives it the right and duty to administer spiritual aid to the souls that turn to it, does not seek primarily a canonical recognition, to which it has a right as a Catholic work. It has only one desire: faithfully to bring the light of the bi-millennial Tradition which shows the only route to follow in this age of darkness in which the cult of man replaces the worship of God, in society as in the Church.
The “restoration of all things in Christ” intended by Saint Pius X, following Saint Paul (cf. Ep.h 1:10), cannot happen without the support of a Pope who concretely favors the return to Sacred Tradition. While waiting for that blessed day, the Society of Saint Pius X intends to redouble its efforts to establish and to spread, with the means that Divine Providence gives to it, the social reign of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Society of Saint Pius X prays and does penance for the Pope, that he might have the strength to proclaim Catholic faith and morals in their entirety. In this way he will hasten the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary that we earnestly desire as we approach the centennial of the apparitions in Fatima.Bishop Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the Society of Saint Pius X

Remnant Editor's Note: We thank God for this extraordinary clarification from the Society of Saint Pius X. Over the years we have had total confidence that the SSPX is in good hands with the Superior General, Bishop Bernard Fellay. While this must have been an extremely difficult decision, given that the first consideration of the SSPX might have been for its own preservation and to obliterate the false charge of schism coming from so many quarters. It is now manifestly obvious that the first concern of Bishop Fellay is to preserve the old Faith and to defend the Catholic Church with every means at his disposal. We will continue to defend the Society of Saint Pius X against the false and erroneous charge of schism and we continue to thank God for the guidance of the Holy Ghost during this time of unprecedented upheaval in the Church. Continue to pray for Bishop Fellay, a true and loyal son of the Catholic Church. MJM
