“We wish therefore and prescribe, that all observe the law of the Church, and that at home or in the church they shall always wear the cassock, which is proper to the clergy. When they go out for duty or relaxation or on a journey, they may use a shorter [coat] which is to be black in color, and which reaches to the knees, so as to distinguish it from the dress of the laity. They should reject the more elegant and worldly styles of garments, which are found today. We enjoin upon our priests as a matter of strict precept that, both at home and abroad, and whether they are residing in their own diocese or outside of it, they shall wear the Roman collar.”
— Third Plenary Council of Baltimore (1884)

“The Return of the SSPX”
published 5 February 2017 by Jeff Ostrowski

OR DECADES, rumors have floated about the SSPX reconciling with Rome. Back in 2002, I made a fool of myself in front of a famous musicologist by insisting (in an excessively adrenalized way) that this was imminent. Memories like that help prevent me from promoting internet rumors, especially those which—if traced to their source—originate with people too cowardly to use their real names. 1

Nevertheless, I would like to share an article that appeared in our (FSSP) Sunday bulletin:

383 SSPX return
