SSPX and The Good Friday prayer

The following does not reflect the opinion of the entire SSPX only one religious order within the organization. (Comments emphasis )

“…the Transalpine Redemptorists, a religious order which has always been closely linked with the SSPX, have made their official position known [about the revision of the Good Friday prayer by Pope Benedict XVI]:

‘In what concerns the Solemn Prayers of the Good Friday Liturgy, the Transalpine Redemptorists will obey with submission the newly promulgated Prayer for the Jews as ordered by His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI on February 4th 2008.[Considering this is a group within the SSPX this is a delightful surprise. And while as noted above this does not reflect the whole of the SSPX it does show that there are elements within the organization who are open to the Holy Father and His wisdom. could the “Extra canonical” status of this group come to an end soon?]

  1. I’m not very surprised. The SSPX has always attempted to obey the Church where the Faith was not compromised. They pray the Rosary for the Pope before every Mass. Lefebvre himself was always very obedient until it came down to what he believed was a state of necessity for the Church. I believe that the SSPX will react very obediently to this decision by the Holy Father.

  2. Well, St Alfonsus is rotating in his grave, how could they be so obedient to that jewish anti-pope?

  3. To my knowledge, the Transalpine Redemptorists are not “within the (SSPX) organization.” To the extent that these Redemptorists honor the Old Mass and are critical of the so-called reforms of V2, there is certainly an ideological identification with SSPX. SSPX, it is reported unofficially, will not observe the revised Good Friday prayer for the Jews. That makes me very happy. I question papal “wisdom,” which, while ostenbibly seeking to clarify the need of Jewish conversion, would leave untouched the same prayer in the Novus Ordo Missae. That prayer says nothing about Jewish conversion to the True Faith.
