Bp Schneider on the SSPX (And You Will Know The Truth Part 53)

Bp Schneider is a holy man of God and among the few who speak out clearly and prophetically about the dire situation of our Church today.

So I am happy that he approves of receiving sacraments from the SSPX. The SSPX is a traditional priestly society, and stands out in the face of Pope Francis’ attacks on tradition. Catholics that are being deprived of the Traditional Latin Mass can go to the SSPX.

The SSPX was founded by Abp Lefebre, who today we can see was in the right as he stood against the misdirection of Vatican II.

Liberals and Modernists in our Church have already lost the faith. But as St Athanasius had said, “they took all the buildings, but we have the faith.” SSPX gives us hope for better times.


Bp. Schneider: Current ’emergency of faith’ means Catholics can receive sacraments from SSPX

Bishop Schneider downplayed fears sometimes raised by Catholics about the SSPX, saying that the society does ‘nothing but [that] which the Church did always until the Council.’

(LifeSiteNews) – Bishop Athanasius Schneider encouraged Catholics to attend Masses celebrated by the Society of St. Pius X, noting that they are “not outside the Church” and are simply doing what the “Church did always” until the Second Vatican Council.

Bishop Schneider, auxiliary bishop of Astana, Kazakhstan, gave his advice in a video clip taken from the monthly video question-and-answer series hosted by the Confraternity of Our Lady of Fatima.

Answering whether it is permitted to attend a chapel run by the traditional Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), he downplayed oft-raised concerns. The society is not in “schism” or is there an “excommunication” on members of the SSPX, he said, and thus “they are not outside the Church.”

There had been an excommunication on bishops consecrated in the Society – excommunications that were always hotly contested by the bishops themselves – but, as Schneider noted, Pope Benedict XVI revoked this in 2009.
