Statement regarding the pastoral visit of Bishop Williamson to Brazil
At the invitation of Dom Thomas, prior of the monastery of the Holy Cross at Nueva-Friburgo, M. R. E. Williamson came to confer the sacrament of confirmation and give some lectures.
I would like to clarify that this trip has been organized independently from the SSPX. Indeed, according to the directives left by our founder Archbishop Lefebvre, only the Superior General, in this case Bishop Fellay, gives the mandate to the auxiliary bishops to undertake a pastoral visit. This procedure has not been respected, which constitutes a serious act against the virtue of obedience but also a more basic lack of courtesy. In addition, the District Superior agreement has not been requested as required by the statutes of our Society. The harmonious collaboration that existed between the SSPX and the Monastery of the Holy Cross has been broken by this act of great gravity, so the organizers must take responsibility before God. Indeed, some faithful have been deceived and they attended the ceremonies and conferences announced believing that they had been organized by the SSPX.
After Dom Tomás Aquina’s article «Honor and Glory to Mgr Williamson», I denounce with the strongest firmness the indirect accusations which were stated suggesting that the SSPX wanted to have a deal with modernism and to cease fighting for the defense of the Catholic Tradition.
These hints are unfounded, false, hurtful and injurious to our Superior General and to the SSPX’s members. I cannot admit them and remain silent. If Bishop Fellay has rejected Rome’s extended hand on June 13, is due to doctrinal reasons. And it is because we reject Vatican II imbued of modernism, which is the main cause of today’s Church’s ruin and we want to continue saying so, it is also because we reject the Novus Ordo Missae, which “in its ensemble and details”, departs from Catholic doctrine, that no practical agreement has been signed with Rome. This was the position of Archbishop Lefebvre in the past and this is Bishop Fellay’s position today. The General Chapter in July has confirmed it. Any other assertion is nothing more than manipulation or lie. Any prophecy about a practical agreement reveals a morbid imagination.
At the beginning of December, M. R. E. Bishop de Galarreta will come to visit us and to confer the sacrament of Confirmation in Brazil and other countries in our district as our Superior General has planned many months ago.
I invite the faithful of the Catholic tradition in Brazil to not pay attention to rumors, to continue to support their priests for their sacrifices, prayers and generosity and to beg God to send numerous and ardent vocations to defend and extend the kingdom of Christ the King under the noble flag of the Catholic tradition and the protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary. God bless you!
Father Christian BOUCHACOURT
