True, they do not, but for anyone to say the Novus Ordo is invalid and illicit and to try to convince others of this would be a scandal because it is simply not true.

Invalidity and illicit are distinct things. I'll let others with better theological training the myself draw that out.

If you have a problem with people saying the N.O. Missae is invalid, then take it up with them specifically. The SSPX does not hold that position.

Quote:Though as has been quoted earlier in this thread, the SSPX themselves do not encourage attendance at the Novus Ordro to fulfil a Sunday obligation if it is one's only option, which is also incorrect.

I don't encourage attendance either, and for various reasons. One has to deal with those reasons and assess whether or not he thinks attendance at the Novus Ordo would be detrimental to his faith. 

I think that it would be a danger, which is why I do not attend.
"Especially will I do this if the Lord make known to me that you come together man by man in common through grace, individually, in one faith, and in Jesus Christ... so that you obey the bishop and the presbytery with an undivided mind, breaking one and the same bread, which is the medicine of immortality, and the antidote to prevent us from dying, but which causes that we should live for ever in Jesus Christ." St. Ignatius of Antioch

"But Polycarp... waving his hand towards them, while with groans he look up to heaven, said, 'Away with the Atheists.'" Martyrdom of Polycarp
