Note: The following excerpts from William F. Strojie's 1977 book, "Rome To Ecône: Vatican II Disaster",
are cited for specific research purposes, and should not be interpreted as an endorsement for his works as a whole. More than 35 years ago Mr. Strojie sounded the alarm for True Catholics regarding the damning consequences then, and forthcoming, of the novel Lefebvre church [and its clones] if it were not crushed.
His unemotional insights and analysis of the schismatic Ecône Operation are of great importance for the small uncompromising flock still remaining. -ED
"Rome To Ecône: Vatican II Disaster"
(Selected Papers of W.F. Strojie)
"The devil destroys the spiritual with the spiritual," says St. John of the Cross. ...
My reasoning about traditionalist chapels is quite simple. If a bishop ordains outside the Church's
jurisdiction and sets up a string of chapels internationally, for dispensing the Sacraments, that quite plain is a schismatic operation, or the word has lost its meaning. A national string of chapels having several priests is not different essentially from
the international one. The single chapel, as at Pittsburgh, Boston, Houston, etc., does not differ essentially from the others, these also being outside the Church's jurisdiction. It is not a matter of numbers but of the setting up public places of worship
outside the permanent laws and jurisdiction of the Church. ... The cry that these are *extraordinary times has been made as an excuse by every charlatan who offers a way out of the present confusion -- only to add to the confusion and divisions among those who know
pretty much what is going on, and to the scandal of those who do not know. Heresy is added to schism by these people -- by their implicit denial of Christ's promise to remain always with the Church He founded.
*"Epikeia is not to be identified with interpretation, dispensation, presumed permission, excusing cause, or popular acceptance of human
law…Human invalidating laws sometimes cease to bind; but epikeia may not be applied to human invalidating laws… IN REGARD TO MATTERS WHICH TOUCH THE ESSENCE OF THE SACRAMENTS, THE USE OF EPIKEIA IS ALWAYS EXCLUDED."
(The History, Nature, and Use of Epikeia in Moral Theology, by Fr. Lawrence Joseph Riley, 1948 Imprimatur)
As I have shown by my own writings, I do not mean that we should all play dead who reject the evil reforms; I have had
my own ideas about what should have been done from the beginning; which, however, had nothing to do with starting any kind of new Church. That schism now threatens -- is actually present -- on an
international scale is largely the fault of those who have been too much concerned about sensible spiritual consolations, rather than about the threatening total destruction of the Church. This destruction will overtake us all the quicker and more completely
because of the every-man-for-himself-Sacraments-regardless-of-the-Law course of action pursued by most of those who call themselves traditionalists. The warnings of good Catholics against those who are destroying the Law would be more effective
if these Catholics were not so ready to break the Law themselves.
From AN EXPOSITION OF THE GOSPELS, MATTHEW AND MARK by John MacEvilly, Archbishop of Tuam, 1887, page 129.
Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His justice, and all these things shall be added unto you.
1. After the negative precept prohibiting excessive anxiety in regard to the necessaries of life, our Redeemer now proposes a positive or affirmative precept.....
2. "Seek." He does not say, "be solicitious." For, even in reference to our spiritual
wants, we should not indulge in distracting solicitude, "nihil soliciti sitis," etc. (St. Paul, Phil, IV)
Concluding Personal Note
I hope these pages will find their way to many who are confused by the devastating Vatican II Renewal. I cannot offer any solution, no more than I can walk on water or calm the storms. I only pass on information and grim warnings which, to be sure, do not
make pleasant music, as many readers have complained. My advice for those who are disposed to take it is this: Keep the Faith, hold close to doctrine and
the law, neither subtracting from
nor adding to it. Avoid all who come offering however gradually, or in whatever devious way they present it, what amounts to a new Church. -William F. Strojie, February 1977
St. Antony of Egypt
"St. Antony never
held communion with the Meletian schismatics, knowing their wickedness
and rebellion from the beginning, nor had friendly converse with the
Manichees, nor any other heretics, save only to warn them to return to their duty, believing and teaching that their friendship and society was a harm and ruin to the soul. So also he loathed the Arian heresy and taught all neither to go near
them nor partake in their ill-faith." -St. Athanasius, Church Doctor
AVOID the Antipapal N.O.'s sspx and sedevacantist Schismatics if you truly desire Heaven!
"I most firmly admit and embrace the apostolic and ecclesiastical traditions and other observances and
constitutions of the Church." From the Professio fidei Tridentinae (Tridentine Creed)
(Read Pius XII's "Ad Apostolorum
Principis" from June 29, 1958)
"For as surely as the Son of God reigns on high, and will reign 'until He has put all His enemies under His feet,' so surely every one that lifts a heel or directs a weapon
against His faith, His Church,or His Vicar upon earth, will share the judgment
which is laid up for the Antichrist whom he serves." -Cardinal Manning, "The
Present Crisis of the Holy See Tested By Prophecy"
Blessed be St. Peter, Prince of the Apostles!
