Disclaimer *Whenever we send out newsblogs on updates on the SSPX we always like to preface the remarks that we ourselves are not SSPX but are in communion with Rome through an Ecclesia Dei community http://www.ecclesiadei.org/ but indeed pray for the end of their persecution*
We begin with the official statement back in April of this year from the head of the Seminary formations, the former SSPX leader tells members: a Vatican deal will be good for the whole Church – CatholicHerald.co.uk

Why Would Rome’s ‘Doctors of the Law’ Want the SSPX Regularized? On The Remnant News
AND THEN THE LATTEST REALLY GETS INTO THE THEOLOGY OF IT –
The contentious Nostra Aetate at the heart of it – The most acclaimed writings from this Vatican II document are of course from those outside the Church that acclaim both it and what they believe is its rebuke of the centuries and centuries old teachings of the Catholic Dogma of ‘Extra Ecclesiam nulla’ (Outside the Church there is no salvation)

The Latest Catholic-Jewish Crisis: Turning a Minus into a Plus – AJC: Global Jewish Advocacy
The late Archbishop of Paris, Marcel Lefebvre and well as Brazilian Bishops Dom Antônio de Castro Mayer and Archbishop Geraldo de Proença Sigaud Archbishop of Diamentina were some of the high level Catholic prelate founders, not in some rebellious schism of lay people in some place like Bayside Queens but a large organized party of Bishops at Vatican II whom John XXIII emptied the conclave of between the 1st and 2nd sessions of the Council and loaded the deck with all the Progressive prelates the Church had to offer from the far ends of the world – He did this by overturning 2/3rds majority and issue a moto proprio override in mid-Council. All very well documented by attendees and the official recording secretary of the Council
Of their main set of writings were gathered in several books – one of which is ‘Against The Heresies’
From the 1960s Vatican II to the late 80s their conservative traditional party within the Church existed in communion with Rome
It was not until 1988 when two decades of delay letters of providing them ordination of many of their recommended traditional Catholic Priests as Bishops that it came to a head in 1988 – It was not doctrinal – Vatican II was declared at the Council by the Pope himself to be a non-binding pastoral Council and no one ever contested that until the current Pontificate If it was challenged the Holy Ghost Father’s order, Society, Seminaries and Chapels throughout the world and on into their existence as the Society of Pius the X would never have been allowed to exist But they did exist for decades in Communion with Rome and ever growing
What I find amazing in the writings on it, ‘Against The Heresies’ or shall I say about it by other Cardinals and Bishops that are very much ‘in Communion’ with Rome remain that nothing can be found within his writings deviate from Catholicism by one iota which is what interested me in the workInstead the case is made as to where the modern Church is violating infallibly declared Catholicism in what is cited in multiple instances of Scriptural Exegesis, Dogmatic, Teachings, Catholic Philosophy, Magisterial teachings and Canon Law consistent in it’s representation for centuries.
So if there is nothing in their teachings that deviate from Catholicism why is there not a Synod being called to resolve the real issues of the Church rather than all these back door rulings and debates where the Church continues to undermine its own teachings After reading this book most come to the conclusion that the Church’s problem is not now, nor has it been with SSPX, but with itself. It’s quite clear.
Along with OL of Fatima – Our Lady of the persecuted, “The Black Madonna” is another one of their main title of intercession charisms and should also be in our prayers of a sympathetic nature for our friends there – towards homeward bound –>
