Default SSPX Update - Redux

Wow, 1000 posts. Anyway, Thomas said we could create another thread. There's some good discussions that were happening, I'd like to see them continue.

Yes I said that you could create the sequel.

You people are really bent on keeping me on my toes, aren't you?

I dare you to reach the 1,000 mark again.

Four more months of this. The other thread lasted four months.

What, are we getting heckled by the Moderator now?



To stay on topic - I found the line of thought intriguing that perhaps, due to indoctrination from an early age, the SSPX priests are not culpable for believing and advancing the idea of supplied jurisdiction because of a "crisis". which the Vatican says doesn't exist.

LOL. I think it is amazing we did such a good job. This is one of the most dicey topics on CAF and while we all have opinions we have done a good job of being civil. I think we should get some kind of medal that is by our name. We honestly do deserve some kudos but so does the moderator who has to put up with us and police a topic that is very volatile.

A big thanks to Br JR. Who may not be as right as he thinks he is but is one of the only reasons the thread or topic is even allowed to continue! Thanks Br JR, you bring civility and common sense to the forum.

Yes, and I love the way you worked in a little dig with your compliment, lol! But how did it work out for Br. JR to get the very last word in on the first thread? I suspect collusion...

Love is not the word that I would use. Talk about a backhanded compliment.

That's easy. Ask and you shall receive. This is actually true. I was responding when I noticed that we had gone past 1,000. I know that 1,000 is the limit. I'm surprised the we got past it. Anyway, I'm good friend with Bl. John Paul. I said an ejaculation to Bl. John Paul and typed as quickly as my little fingers could go.

Bl. John Paul has never let me down. I'm working on getting another miracle from him.

Fraternally,

Br. JR, FFV

Hey Brother JR, Next time you are praying for a miracle, maybe you could ante up the request a bit?

This is a very interesting idea. Scary too, because it acknowledges that the Society is an isolated, insular group. It also says to me that they aren't drawing in many new people. Their growth is based on family growth of those people who "defected" in the 70s. Their priests are children of the original group who have had very little interaction with the larger world.

That wouldn't be an issue of discussion at all except that something has to explain how, 40 some odd years later they can maintain that there is still a 'crisis' but the rest of us somehow keep going along without being vaporized by the wrath of the Holy Spirit.

I'm not sure your growth assertions are true. Do you have a source? As far as I can tell, there are many Catholics becoming comfortable with the SSPX all the time, as sour as that might be becoming.

Really?? I have no idea at all. There is no SSPX chapel or community around here. I am only going on what I have heards second hand which is that families are large and encourage vocations and that young men often enter the SSPX college seminaries right out of high school. People seem to be quite proud of this and in general I agree that large families that encourage vocations is a good thing. But it would tend to make the group increasingly isolated, even if it was growing in numbers.

I don't hear too much about people joining SSPX as adults. I did used to hear that quite a bit about the Legionaries of Christ.

If you have a diffierent experience, I am perfectly ready to believe you.

I mean, I don't have stats, but I do hear of people on the blogosphere and forumosphere becoming affiliated, yes.
