Society prays to Almighty God that He abundantly bestow on the new Sovereign Pontiff the graces necessary for the exercise of this heavy

last major act?
of Bishop Fellay
For a moment I thought that, with his resignation,
Benedict XVI would perhaps make a final gesture in our favor as
pope. That being said, I have a hard time seeing how he could do
so. We will probably have to wait for the next pope...

A priest must be a man of faith:
sermon of 1-27-2013
This is one of the great misfortunes of our time, this ignorance
of what a priest is, even before knowing what he does. The only
way to know a priest in his reality is faith... We are living in
an age in which this faith is abused, attacked, slashed,
everywhere, outside the Church and inside as well...

Where is the continuity of the Council?
Bishop Fellay's Paris sermon
We have reached an impasse,
but we will continue our fight. My dear brethren, this is the situation. And this is why it is obvious
that since June matters are at a standstill. It is a return to
ground zero. We are at exactly the same point as Archbishop
Lefebvre in the years 1975, 1974...
Where do we stand in Rome?

the constant attacks to which this very Faith is subjected nowadays...
