Special 40 years of the SSPX : The Purpose of the Priestly Society of Saint Pius X

Source: FSSPX News

As the ruins produced by the corruption of minds and hearts accumulate all around us, stories of the vitality of the eternal Church take on an inestimable value. If we restore the destroyed altars, if we offer anew the true Sacrifice of the Mass, there is every hope of success. However, as long as there remains an ecumenical communion, democratic and liberal, the self-destruction will continue, despite all the spectacular gatherings, admonitions, and dignified and respectful speeches.

"Nisi Dominus ædificaverit Domum, in vanum laboraverunt qui ædificant eam. Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain that build it. "  [Psalms 126:1]  Hence, the altar of propitiatory sacrifice, the legacy of the new and eternal Testament, the body and blood of Jesus are the cornerstone of the Church from which flows the waters of eternal life.

Keep faith in God, Jesus and Mary, that they will prevail upon Church authorities to restore the altars. Until that day, pray and multiply the altars and priests to effect the celebration of Holy Mass during which is offered the Holy Victim, a burning furnace of charity, for the redemption of our sins.

Such is the purpose of the Priestly Society of Saint Pius X.
