The fraternal message of the Archbishop of Paris

Source: FSSPX News

On the occasion of the Jewish new year, Rosh Hashanah (September 9), the Archbishop of Paris offered his priests posters and greeting cards to give out to their parishioners so that they can send them to their Jewish friends.  For the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr (September 9-10), the same archdiocese provided its clergy with a “message of fraternity” that Catholics can send to their Muslim friends.  It reads:  “We again assure you of our commitment to fostering good relations between Muslims and Christians and to building a life together in God’s sight.  May we have many more meetings and exchanges while respecting our differences.”

On the occasion of the fortieth anniversary of the Society of Saint Pius X (November 1), Catholics who are committed to Tradition will no doubt receive greeting cards and fraternal messages from parishioners of all the churches in Paris.  They will read:  “We rejoiced to see the right to the Traditional Mass officially reinstated by Benedict XVI three years ago.  And we sincerely hope that there will be many more churches everywhere in which it is celebrated.”

In reality, people will explain to us that it is impossible to fraternize with Tradition, whereas it is right and good to dialogue with the Jews and the Muslims.  Such is the selective fraternity of the Archbishop of Paris, in which all are brothers, but some much more than others !
