Society of St Pius X – Marian Corps
WHAT IS THE SOCIETY OF SAINT PIUS THE TENTH – MARIAN CORPS (SSPX-MC)
The constitutions of that society state that “the Fraternity is a priestly society of community life without vows, at the example of the societies of Foreign missionaries” and its aim is “the Priesthood and all that concern it and nothing else than it.”
BACKGROUND OF THE FOUNDATION OF THE SOCIETY OF SAINT PIUS THE TENTH
The Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX) is therefore a priestly congregation founded by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre. It was erected officially in conformity with Canon Law in the diocese of Fribourg, Switzerland, on February 18, 1971. Since it has been recognized by the competent authorities, it is a work of the Catholic Church, for the Priesthood, as foretold by Our Lady of Quito, a long time ago.
THE FORMATION OF THE MARIAN CORPS
Forty years later, that Priesthood suffered a terrible offense, when the Superiors of the SSPX, lured by the new Rome of liberal and modernist tendencies, began to recognize the Council of Vatican II, the New Mass and the New Code of Canon Law.
A remnant of priests willed to fulfill their Oath against modernism by having nothing to do with such wicked and premature compromise. They began to resist the new liberal tendencies, by simply remaining “a little army of rebuilders”, doing what an army does, fighting, until the new mass is forbidden, Vatican II anathematized and the old Code of Canon Law enforced again by the Eternal Rome; and Tradition itself, not us, little soldiers, be recognized by a fully converted Papacy.
THE FIGHT OF THE WOMAN AGAINST THE DRAGON
It is Our Lady who leads us in that battle, like Deborah, because it is the will of God that victory should be attributed to Her (Judges IV,9). As the Archbishop told us on the occasion of her Immaculate Conception, she is the opposite of this deathly admixing of truth and error and of this desire to be recognized by any Council of the impious ones, whatever be the place they unjustly occupy.
May she enable us to stand in the Truth, in all humility, before our God, who is the First Truth or Truth Itself, and then before other men to whom Truth is owed as a first Charity.
