These videos divide in 7 parts the conference of Bishop Fellay given on the occasion of the 40th Anniversary of the Society of St. Pius X, during the Angelus Press Conference held October 15-17, 2010, in Kansas City, Missouri. All the conferences may be purchased on CD from ANGELUS PRESS.

It is a commentary upon three sentences of Archbishop Lefebvre’s last book: Spiritual Journey.

Parts 1 & 2

The evil of the Council is the ignorance of Jesus-Christ and of His Kingdom.” (Spiritual Journey; Prologue, p. X, Angelus Press, 1991)

 

Part 3

It is because the reign of Our Lord Jesus is no longer the center of attention and of activity for those who are our prćpositi [leaders], that they lose the sense of God and of the Catholic Priesthood, and that we can no longer follow them.”  (Ibid; Preface p. IV)

 

Parts 4 & 5

“If the Holy Ghost allows me to put in writing the spiritual thoughts which follow, before entering if it please God into the bosom of the Holy Trinity, I will be allowed to realize the dream of which He gave me a glimpse one day in the Cathedral of Dakar. The dream was to transmit, before the progressive degradation of the priestly ideal, in all of its doctrinal purity and in all of its missionary charity, the Catholic Priesthood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, just as He conferred it on His Apostles, just as the Roman Church always transmitted it until the middle of the twentieth century.” (Ibid; Preface p. I)

At the end of his conference, His Excellency explains what the position of the Society of St. Pius X is (Part 6) and comments on the current situation of the SSPX and of its relations with Rome and the Holy Father (Part 7).

Part 2/7         18:22

  • The loss of the sense of the sin comes from a loss of Faith about God.
