FAREWELL, WIMBLEDON

So I have moved out of Wimbledon, which at least corresponds to the reality of my supposed “expulsion” from the Society of St Pius X. But the move is not without its sadness, because I spent nearly four years there after my real expulsion from Argentina, and they have been happy years, despite everything. Perhaps the main happiness has been the company of the priests in SSPX headquarters in England, St George’s House. They have been very good company. May God bless each of them.

However one thing I must say. People ask why I left the Society. I did not leave the Society. The Society left me, by abandoning the principles for which I joined it. Once again, the parallel with Vatican II is exact. Just as countless Catholic priests, religious and layfolk were abandoned by the churchmen who opted in the 1960’s for the Council, so a number of faithful priests and laity are being abandoned in the 2010’s by the leaders of the Society as these choose to head for peace with their “new friends in Rome” - quote of the Society’s First Assistant. The blindness is astonishing, for those who can see. It is all too natural for those who cannot see. May God have mercy on them. I do believe that these leaders have never understood what Archbishop Lefebvre was all about. They are children of their age.

The only substantial reason given for their “expelling” me was disobedience. But the only substantial disobedience on my part was the repeated refusal to close down these “Eleison Comments”. Yet when I asked the Superior General on two different occasions to specify which precise numbers of the “Comments” were so problematic, each time he did not give an answer, no doubt because he would have had to admit that the real problem was one of content, namely my resolute opposition to his suicidal approach to Conciliar Rome. Instead he continues to pretend, that the problem is one of discipline, thus diverting attention away from the real problem. And I am not the first priest and I will not be the last that he treats in this way. May God give him light. He risks chasing out many of his true friends in order to please his true enemies, just like Pope Paul VI did with Archbishop Lefebvre. The parallels never end. The Newchurch and the Newsocie ty are the same malady of our age.

So what now ? I borrow a friend’s flat in the vicinity of London for a few weeks at best, for a few months at worst, until I can find suitable property to rent for 6 or 12 months. At this point I still do not believe in making any permanent arrangements. Alas, I shall not be easy to contact because my friend has to be discreet out of care for his neighbours. In any case snail mail will reach me through P.O. Box 423, Deal CT14 4BF, England. (but please don’t send Christmas cards. I send none). From December 13 to January 3 I plan to make an apostolic visit to Canada and the USA, Deo volente, and immediately after that a visit to France for the Feast of the Epiphany.

Also changing will be some aspects of how my spoken and written words are published. The format and method of delivery of “Eleison Comments” may change too, but what I hope will not change is their appearing every Saturday through December and into the New Year. . Thank you for all your contributions to the St Marcel Initiative. In case you were concerned, I can promise you that they have not gone astray. Happy Christmas.

Kyrie eleison

What does +W mean by 'apostolic vist,' above? I thought that apostolic visitations are generally delegated by the pope, when the neccessity arises in order to do a sort of inspection of a particular diocese or Catholic group. What is it that +W will be inspecting? Found this description of apostolic visitation on wiki (maybe there's better description elsewhere though):

He's going to become his own Pope  LOL LOL LOL
I can only recommend again to watch the . He spells out his program quite clearly there. The true religion goes straight up, then he lists those who leave the "true religion". First the Orthodox, then the Protestants, then the Roman Church, then the SSPX and in the end only he and his followers represent the true religion. And remember "the problem with Bishop Fellay is, that he is not a conspiracy theorist".

Also, notice how the SSPX has become the "Newsociety", with the only change being that he is no longer with them.
I wonder how long Williamson's Eleison Comments will be posted here like they're the latest angelus message from Rome. Also, how long can Roman numerals get? It looks like the copyrights in the credits on the old movies. I wonder if he's read, Who Moved My Cheese? I'm serious. Not being facetious.

It sounds to me as though he's lost his mind. And yet he's only 72.

Um, you might want to think about that for a minute.

So it's only hip when it's not a Society Bishop? Oh, they're the only real Catholic Bishops. I forgot. Silly me.
