The SSPX Resistance is a loosely organized group of Traditionalist Catholics that grew out of the concern that the dialogue between the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) and the Holy See was leading the SSPX to accept the Second Vatican Council as a condition of the Society's recognition by Rome. The SSPX Resistance has continued to celebrate the Tridentine Mass and the pre-Vatican II (but post-Trent) rites, though independent of both the Catholic Church and the SSPX. They see themselves as holding true to the founding principles of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, opposing any drift towards liberalism and modernism perceived as having crept into the SSPX. The largest organisations of the SSPX Resistance are the Society of St. Pius X–Marian Corps (SSPX–MC) and the Union Sacerdotale Marcel Lefebvre.

Origins[edit]

  1. About Catholic things.
  2. The Catechism of the Catholic Church, or CCC, is an official explanation of the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.

This is because, in terms of health and disease, similarities between the body corporate of the Catholic Church and the human organism immediately.

Though the dialogue with Rome ultimately failed in achieving reconciliation and recognition of the society, the possibility of further schism within the SSPX grew more serious. Bishop Williamson was the most prominent dissenter, challenging the authority and governance of the society publicly on multiple occasions. For example, in August 2012 Williamson administered the sacrament of Confirmation to about 100 lay people at the Benedictine Monastery of the Holy Cross in Nova Friburgo, Brazil, during an unauthorized visit to the State of Rio de Janeiro. The society's South American district superior, Father Christian Bouchacourt, protested his actions on the SSPX website saying that it was 'a serious act against the virtue of obedience'.[6] In early October the leadership of the SSPX gave Williamson a deadline to declare his submission, instead of which he published an 'open letter' asking for the resignation of the superior general.[7] In October 2012 the society expelled Williamson in a 'painful decision' citing the failures 'to show respect and obedience deserved by his legitimate superiors'.[8] Immediately after his expulsion, he publicly called for the establishment of a loose social network of what he called 'Catholic Resistance' to any proposal by the society to drop its opposition to Rome.[1] Williamson served as the de facto bishop for various groups of the faithful and clergy sympathetic to Williamson and opposed to recent developments within the society.

The most notable and largest group in North America began to call itself the Society of St. Pius X of the Strict Observance (SSPX-SO), though it is now known as the Society of St. Pius X–Marian Corps (SSPX–MC). Five priests were either expelled from the SSPX or renounced their affiliation with the society, signing the 'Vienna Declaration' and outlining their positions.[9] Since 2013, this group has become known by a number of names, including the Society of St. Pius X of the Strict Observance (SSPX-SO) and the Apostles of Jesus and Mary, but ultimately settled on the Society of St. Pius X–Marian Corps (SSPX–MC).[10] They are active, celebrating the Tridentine Mass and traditional form of the sacraments throughout Canada and the United States. Another group within the SSPX Resistance movement, in the Indian, East Asian, and Oceanic regions, uses the same name (SSPX-MC) and is served occasionally by priests affiliated with the North American SSPX-MC.[11] The SSPX-MC continues to follow the constitutions and rules of the Society of St. Pius X but provides a refuge for resistance priests and others who no longer believe they can fulfill their vows in the Society.

Another group within the SSPX Resistance is the Union Sacerdotale Marcel Lefebvre (English: Priestly Union of Marcel Lefebvre), founded at the monastery of the Avrillé Dominicans in Avrillé, France.[12] Relations between the Society of St. Pius X and the Dominicans of Avrillé soured after certain religious in the community were suspected of aligning with the resistance. Bishop Fellay ultimately postponed ordinations scheduled for June 2014 as a test of loyalty.[13] On July 15, 2014, Bishop Williamson celebrated Mass at the monastery and presided over the meeting and organization of French priests associated with the SSPX Resistance.[14] Thereafter, the Dominican Friars of Avrillé formally declared their disassociation with the SSPX and, together with other French SSPX Resistance priests, formed the Priestly Union of Marcel Lefebvre by a 'Declaration of Catholic Fidelity', signed October 26, 2014.[15]

In 2013, a non-profit (501C3) organisation was set up under the title 'St. Marcel Initiative', a trade name of BRN Associates, Inc.[16] This initiative of independent pockets of resistance without hierarchical structure[1] is patronized by Richard Williamson and overseen by David Allen White.[3][4]

2015, 2016, and 2017 consecrations[edit]

On March 19, 2015, Bishop Williamson consecrated Bishop Jean-Michel Faure at the Benedictine Monastery of the Holy Cross in Nova Friburgo, Brazil.[17] Father Faure, a Frenchman, was one of the first members of the Society of St. Pius X and was even initially considered for the episcopacy by Marcel Lefebvre in the 1988 consecrations, though Faure turned down the selection; Fellay was chosen in his place. Faure served the society as district superior of both Argentina and Mexico for many years.[17] While both had already been expelled from the society, the SSPX condemned the consecration.[18]

On March 19, 2016, one year after the 2015 consecration, Bishop Williamson consecrated Miguel Ferreira da Costa (aka Thomas Aquinas) of Brazil at the same place. The SSPX did not comment on the new consecration.[19] On May 11, 2017, it was announced that Williamson intended to consecrate a third bishop, Mexican-American prelate Gerardo Zendejas. The consecration was held at St. Athanasius Church in Vienna, Virginia.[20]

'The design of the logo is adapted from a Christiantombstone in the catacombs of Domitilla in Rome, which dates from the end of the third century A.D. This pastoral image, of pagan origin, was used by Christians to symbolize the rest and the happiness that the soul of the departed finds in eternal life. This image also suggests certain characteristic aspects of this Catechism: Christ, the Good Shepherd who leads and protects his faithful (the lamb) by his authority (the staff), draws them by the melodious symphony of the truth (the panpipes), and makes them lie down in the shade of the tree of life, his redeeming Cross which opens paradise.'[1]

The Catechism of the Catholic Church, or CCC, is an official explanation of the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. It was first published in French in 1992 by the authority of PopeJohn Paul II.[2] The volume, which is a book of over 900 pages, has been translated into many other languages, including English. In 1997, a Latin text was made. The Latin text is now the official text of reference[3] the contents of the first French text were amended at a few points.[4]

The Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church was published in 2005, and the first edition in English in 2006. It is a more concise and dialogic (written like a conversation) version of the CCC. The text is available in twelve languages on the Vatican website, which gives the text of the Catechism itself in eight languages.
