From our friend W., at Traditio in Radice. The New Crusade endorses this call for a Crusade of Rosaries and agrees with W. that "It seems to me that one need not assist at Masses offered by Society priests in order to take part in this very worthy effort." For the record, I have never attended Mass in an SSPX Chapel. I am an indulter and a proud member of Saint Philippine Duchesne Latin Mass Community in Kansas City, KS under the pastoral care of Priests of the FSSP.
Spiritual Bouquet for the Holy Father
Posted by W at 9:50 AM
On 16 July, Bishop Fellay has released a Letter to the faithful along with the declaration of the general Chapter regarding the situation with Rome. Of special note in Bp. Fellay's letter is his desire to present Pope Benedict XVI with a spiritual boquet of one million Rosaries at the end of October. He and the general chapter of the S.S.P.X are therefore calling for a prayer crusade and ask the faithful to start praying their Rosaries now for these three intentions:
1. To obtain from Heaven for Pope Benedict XVI the strength required to completely free up the Mass of all time, called the Tridentine Mass.
2. For the return of the Social Kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
3. For the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
It seems to me that one need not assist at Masses offered by Society priests in order to take part in this very worthy effort. I therefore encourage our readers to start "bud[ding] forth the spiritual roses for [this] bouquet" -- for the benefit of those readers that do not attend Society chapels, I will post the directions for putting together this treasure when I hear them.
