Well Russia has already been consecrated, so I don’t know what’s the point for praying for the last one, but I’m sure there’s no harm in praying for a larger usage of the extraordinary form of the Mass (which is what I’m assuming they mean by a return to tradition in the Church.) However, I, personally, am always weary of participating in schismatic groups like the sspx.
You can pray your rosary for those intentions if you want. I’m sure different people would have different interpretations of ‘return to tradition.’ I would be carefully about sending in your name in a pledge to the crusade or posting about it online (like in Facebook) because if you are associate with the sspx, your bishop will be more cautious in allowing the EF. That is your bishop’s right and part of the instructions given by Pope Benedict.
I recommend you pray for conversion of sinners and a return to devotion and piety.
The SSPX is NOT whatsoever in schism with the Church. I will be participating in the Bishop’s rosary crusade January 1-8 and I hope anyone who wants the restoration of tradition in the church to do so as well.
Is being Catholic just a juridical status? I think not. Draw your own conclusions. I’ve drawn mine. It’s clear to me that Bishop Bernard Fellay is more Catholic than the high ranking prelates in the article I linked.
Do you even understand the issues in the article cited? Cardinal Walter Kasper and the Bishops Conference of Germany are willing to give Holy Communion to people who are divorced and remarried. In other words, they are defying the very teaching of Jesus Christ in the Gospels and the Immemorial teaching of the Church, and not a thing is done about it. In fact, under the current climate, I expect it to be encouraged.
That’s far worse than anything Bishop Fellay has ever done. As far as the sacrament of penance being invalid when administered by SSPX priests, that’s a separate issue. But a person who presents themselves to a priest for the Sacrament of Penance in good faith will be absolved of his sins. Unless you think Our Lord is more concerned with laws and regulations than he is with the salvation of souls.
