Attending SSPX Mass---Does it meet your Sunday obligation?

I am confused. I thought we were not to be attending SSPX Mass at all so as not to risk grave sin or at the very least to not create scandal. Please advise.

Does attending an SSPX Mass meet Sunday obligation? Would attending such a Mass be acting in union with The Holy See?

Dear G,

Catholics are not allowed to attend the liturgies of schsmatic churches, unless for a funeral or some such occasion. Even then, they are not to receive any sacraments there. Such liturgies DO NOT satisfy the Sunday obligation for Catholics to attend Mass!
