April 2013 - Superior General's Letter #80

April 15, 2013
The Society found itself in a delicate position during most of the year 2012, following the approach of Benedict XVI in attempting to normalize our situation. The trouble caused by the uncertainties vanished as of June 13, 2012, by a letter from Benedict XVI himself. As Archbishop Augustine Di Noia, wrote in a letter addressed to the members of the Society of St. Pius X, "on the doctrinal level we are still at the point where we started out in the 1970s."

December 2011 - Superior General's Letter #79

December 21, 2011
The basis for the current problem in the Church can be summarized as a loss of the faith in the divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ. This loss is manifested in the teachings of the Second Vatican Council on religious liberty, ecumenism and collegiality. That is why the Society speaks so often about the Kingship of Christ for it is the summary of our recognition of His Divinity.

April 2011 - Superior General's Letter #78

April 11, 2011
Spiritual catastrophes wound or kill souls. The scandalous pontificate of Pope John Paul II promotes the triumph of revolutionary ideas within the Church. The coming of Pope Benedict gives hope for a rectification of the situation, but the revival of Assisi will lead to indifferentism in everyday life. Therefore a third Rosary Crusade has been launched.

November 2010 - Superior General's Letter #77

November 28, 2010
The sum total of events that the Society has encountered over the past 40 years is beyond all imagination. She has been punished because of her obedience to the faith and her fidelity to doctrine. Two points intimately linked should be underlined: The Kingship of Christ and the priesthood. There is a movement towards a return and the Society can offer an important contribution.

May 2010 - Superior General's Letter #76

May 01, 2010
The pontificate of Benedict XVI shows on the one side a real movement towards Tradition and on the other side regrettable acts along the same line as Pope John Paul II. It is difficult to know what to expect in the upcoming years. After the second rosary crusade gathered nineteen million rosaries, we wish that the authorities will accomplish the famous consecration of Russia.

October 2009 - Superior General's Letter #75

October 11, 2009
The Church since Fatima is in the process of being transformed into a pile of spiritual ruins and its demolition is carried out especially by subversion and infiltration. Since the Council the Church fell into step with the world. We clearly see that the message of Fatima has not come to an end. During this month of October the doctrinal discussions with Rome will start.

April 2009 - Superior General's Letter #74

April 12, 2009
Rosary Crusades frees the Traditional Mass and the SSPX from the so-called excommunication. These acts of Pope Benedict XVI can be seen as a sign of good-will and as a step in the right direction although much still needs to be done in order to remedy the situation. A new Rosary Crusade of twelve million rosaries has been launched in order that Russia be consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and that she will grant to the Church the grace of doctrinal fidelity.

October 2008 - Superior General's Letter #73

October 23, 2008
Clarifying the ultimatum from Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos. In 2007 the traditional Mass is freed for all priests, but before the decree of excommunication is withdrawn, Cardinal Hoyos wants to impose conditions upon us. We launch a new Rosary Crusade to obtain the withdrawal of the decree of excommunication.

April 2008 - Superior General's Letter #72

April 14, 2008
The Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum has acknowledged that the Traditional Mass was never abrogated, nevertheless there has been no fundamental change in the Church`s new doctrinal orientations which are at the source of the ever-deepening crisis. The Society launches a Rosary Crusade for the Church`s return to Tradition which would provide a solid basis for a possible future agreement.

November 2007 - Superior General's Letter #71

November 01, 2007
With joy we receive the motu proprio of July 7th declaring that the traditional Mass was never abrogated. We see in it an answer from Heaven to our Rosary Crusade, not only because of its promulgation, but especially because of the extent of its overture towards the traditional liturgy. More than 5,000 priests worldwide have requested the training videos on the ceremonies of the Mass and the unanimous feedback is more than positive. What an increase of grace will occur for families and Society now that the traditional Mass may be freely celebrated.
