REMNANT COMMENT: So, what have we here? An SSPX priest was invited by an Archbishop to say the Latin Mass in his diocese at a parish Church for his faithful twice a month! As more time passes, the position of Michael Voris and his friend, Fr. Paul Nicholson, becomes more and more embarrassing. Voris’ CMTV recently devoted an entire week to denigrating the Society, calling it schismatic, heretical, and various other things. Similarly, his friend Fr. Nicholson is on record saying that a Mass said by an SSPX priest is even worse than a black Mass. I wonder if Voris and Fr. Nicholson will alert Abp. Ghizzoni to the fact that he is permitting a “schismatic” priest to commit “mortal sin” by offering a Tridentine Mass to his faithful? By the logic of our Neo-Cath friends, the Archbishop would have been better off letting a Satanic priest offer a Black Mass at the parish twice a month.
Regardless, let us give thanks that the Church hierarchy is slowly recognizing that the SSPX has always been in material, de facto, Full Communion, even if they have taken great pains till now, not to admit it. With the news of the tragic annulment documents of Pope Francis, coupled with the ongoing travesty of the Synod, we need to rejoice when we can.
