SSPX for Priests

Immense help in the apostolate


The life of a priest, founded upon daily prayer and works of sanctification, must be supplemented with serious reading and study. The Sacred Scriptures and writings of the Fathers should, of course, hold first place; but other materials pertaining to the life of the Church and contemporary social issues can also aid the priest immensely in his apostolate.

We are happy to present here a selection of key texts which we hope will aid priests to sanctify their own souls and those entrusted to their care.

In this Letter to Friends and Benefactors, No. 88, Bishop Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X, shows the profound link that unites the revolt of Luther and the revolution of October 1917: liberal laxity and state communism/socialism. "This principle aims to free men from dependence on God and the order established by him, both on the natural level and on the supernatural level".
