France: Warning Call from the Society of St. Pius X's District Superior

Source: FSSPX News

On Thursday, March 4, 2010, Fr. Régis de Cacqueray, Superior of the Society of St. Pius X's district of France, published an letter entitled: “The Bishops: Guardians of the Faith or Proselytes Protecting Other Cults?”

Fr. de Cacqueray reflects on the role of the bishop, guardian of the flock and preacher of the faith, “successor of the Apostles and martyrs”.  Doubtless there have always been good and bad bishops, “there have been heroic bishops and there have been weak bishops. There have been Hilaries of Poitier and Bossuets.  There have been Cauchons and Talleyrands.  But never before has a nation, formerly so Christian, seen such a confusion touching so closely the Faith.  Today, our bishops stand by silent while Christ is attacked.  They keep the churches closed to us.  And at the very same time they open mosques.  They concelebrate  with Protestant pastors. They grant diplomas to imams and invite rabbis to preach in their cathedrals.  In a word, they comfort souls in  their remoteness from Christ and from the Church He founded.”

For today, “a great number of bishops of France are endeavouring to constitute a sort of embassy of  religion in general.  Drowning Catholicism in a cohabitation with other religions that leave souls in ignorance of the love of Christ, they unite themselves in a syndicate for the defense of cults.  They no longer hesitate to fly to the rescue of the burkha and seem more concerned about wishing “a good Ramadan” to the dignitaires of Islam than about making sure their flocks know and observe Lent.”

The result of such an attitude is henceforth “the impossibility of affirming that the Catholic religion is the only one founded by God, and an indifferentism (that) has penetrated even into the minds of those responsable for maintaining the Faith of those confided to their care.  In such wise, they encourage the dechristianisation of France whose soil is now swarming with the temples of other cults, signalling more and more the disregard of the God of Majesty.”

The district superior of France concludes with a cry of alarm, pointing out the cause of the dechristianisation of his country: “on the path of ecumenism and interreligious dialogue, the situation of the Church in France becomes ever more serious.  How can we keep silence, or even put aside in parentheses this warning call, when thousands of souls are being plunged into a mortal indifferentism?” (source: La Porte Latine/ Apic – DICI, March 6, 2010)
