Rogue Catholic bishops plan to grow schismatic challenge to Rome
Did they really say, "We are more Catholic than the Pope?"

This one is not like the others: Faure

Of recent news is the episcopal consecration of Fr. Jean-Michel Faure by Bishop Richard Williamson that took place on March 19th.

Supporters of Faure's episcopal consecration have been justifying this act by comparing it to the 1988 Episcopal Consecrations of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre. However, a close examination of the two events will show that the one is definitely not like the other—thus why the SSPX denounced the consecration of Fr. Faure.

We have just added to our news/events section an excellent commentary by Fr. Francois Laisney, Episcopal Consecration, which compares the context and spirit of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre's "Operation Survival" versus the consecration of Fr. Faure.
I am not a supporter of Bishop Williamson (quite the contrary), but the SSPX is conveniently forgetting the 1991 consecration of Bishop Licinio Rangel here. Many of the things the SSPX claims for the 1988 consecrations (canonical establishment, acceptance "in principle" by the pope, ...) do not apply to the 1991 consecration, and yet the SSPX performed it.
