Superior General of the Priestly Society of St. Pius X and
his two Assistants, together with all its members: bishops,
priests, brothers, sisters as well as the faithful, join
in the prayer of the Universal Church at the announcement
of the passing of the Holy Father, Pope John Paul II. We
commend his soul to the mercy of God the Father and the
intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
will be a Requiem Mass said in each house of the Society
for the repose of the soul of the Holy Father.
Society of St. Pius X, founded by Mgr. Marcel Lefebvre,
applauds the fight undertaken by Karol Wojtyla for the protection
of life and his efforts in the moral sphere. Nonetheless,
it feels it a duty to repeat that it has always disapproved
of the indefatigable efforts of Pope John Paul II towards
ecumenism, efforts which have led to a weakening of the
Faith and of the defence of Truth.
Society is aware of the superhuman task awaiting the future
Supreme Pontiff and prays the Holy Ghost to enlighten the
Cardinal Electors. It hopes the new Vicar of Christ will
be able to take up the helm of the Church with a steady
hand and make good the damage caused in the wake of the
Second Vatican Council: liturgical unity and the unity of
Faith have been dissolved and doctrinal errors have spread
amongst all the clergy.
we wait and hope for this, it is now time to pray for him
who has just entered eternity.
Mgr. Bernard Fellay
General of the Priestly Society of St. Pius X
