My question concerns the blue booklet titled:
SPIRITUAL EXERCISES OF St. Ignatius of Loyola, Retreat Manual and Family Prayer Book.
Published by Angelus Press, of Kansas City, Missouri, widely regarded as “the” official publisher for the Society of St. Pius X.
Now, on page 25 we find this heading:
Third Commandment: “Remember Thou Keep Holy The Lord’s Day” The Precepts Of The Church
We skip down a ways and we find this:
**“Have you attended and actively participated in the New Mass?”
“Have you received Holy Communion in the hand?”**
My question is simply this:
Just what, judging from the way these two statements are linked, are we to believe, regarding what they say?
Are we being told here that: Going to the New Mass and participating in it is a so-called Mortal Sin, at least in the eyes of the Society of St. Pius X?
Do we say the same thing about Communion in the hand?
And, in either or both cases, just what’s the point of putting St. Ignatius Loyola’s name on the cover?
And why isn’t this official book even signed by its author or authors?
