AN invitation by the Society of St. Pius X to clergy and lay people to attend their celebration of the feast of the solemnity of the Most Holy Rosary on Friday was rejected by the Archdiocese of Davao.
Father Thomas Onoda, the head of the international Catholic traditionalist organization in the Philippines, had announced that all who wanted to join could gather in liturgy last weekend.
Archbishop Fernando Capalla of Davao rejected the group’s invitation, and advised Catholics against joining.
“As long as the society does not have canonical status in the Church, its ministers do not exercise legitimate ministries in the Church,” he said, quoting Pope Benedict XVI’s 2009 letter regarding the organization.
“For this reason our Catholics – priests, Religious and laity – are hereby advised not to participate in any ministry – liturgical celebration, teaching and community – of the Society of St. Pius X,” the prelate said.
Just to pray the Rosary?!?! The CBCP even prayed with the SSPX for the defense of life. We saw a lot of YouTube videos about this. Countless bishops sat with Fr. Onoda and delivered their message of support for the Rosary Crusade.
I have heard stories of how the SSPX "crashed" a seminar about the TLM in Davao and this might have cause the Archbishop to turn down the invite. And I think it might be justified...
Will the same treatment be given to the likes of the INC who say nothing but filth against the Pope, the Church and the laity?
Hell, they even ridicule the Lord Jesus for calling him a mere man!
