SSPX Expels Father Abrahamowicz

abrahamowicz4Bishop Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), seems to be having a bit of a freak-out. I was going to say sell-out, but I’ll reserve judgment on that - for now.

The news out of Italy is that the SSPX has expelled Father Floriano Abrahamowicz of the SSPX Northern Italian District “for grave reasons of discipline.” Fr. Abrahamowicz, you’ll recall, is the SSPX priest who expressed doubts about the Holocaust just days after Bishop Williamson’s interview aired on Swedish television:

[Portion of the SSPX NOTE, according to several Italian news agencies:] “The action is in effect from Friday, February 6, and was taken for grave reasons of discipline. Father Floriano Abrahamowicz had expressed for some time positions distinct from the official ones of the Fraternity of Saint Pius X. The decision of the expulsion, though painful, was made necessary to avoid that the image of the Fraternity of Saint Pius X be distorted and, with it, that its work in the service of the Church be damaged.”

Now, that “grave matter of discipline” wouldn’t have anything to do with the fact that Fr. Abrahamowicz just let another cat of the bag when he dared to question the Shoah dogma, would it? Fr. Abrahamowicz, who is himself half Jewish, recently spoke out in defense of Bishop Williamson who dared to utter a truth that the Party has declared officially false. As Bishop Williamson explained in his sermon on Orwell’s 1984, the Party wants to get inside your brain to make you believe that 2 + 2 = 5. (Or in this case, that 6 million minus any number always equals 6 million.) This made Bishop Williamson Public Enemy Number One to the Party – but a hero to those of us who stubbornly maintain that 2 + 2 = 4.
 
Fr. Abrahamowicz stated in a January 29 interview with the Italian newspaper La Tribuna de Treviso that:
 
It’s truly impossible for a Catholic Christian to be anti-Semitic. I myself, on my father’s side, have Jewish roots. My last name even suggests this. This entire polemic regarding the statements of Bishop Williamson concerns the existence of gas chambers, and has been strongly instrumentalized for anti-Vatican purposes. Williamson simply expressed his doubts, and his ‘denial’ is not of the Holocaust – as newspapers have falsely said – but of the technical aspect of the gas chambers.
 
So far, so good. He calmly states that Bishop Williamson’s doubts revolve around technical issues, and that the whole thing was a set up by the “Swedish” reporter, which it most certainly was.  But here’s where he starts to get into trouble:
 
Who has ever talked about the Anglo-American genocide in the bombing of German cities? Who has ever talked about Churchill, who ordered the phosphorous bombing of Dresden, where there were not only many civilians, but also many Allied soldiers? Who has spoken about the English air force, which, in the bombing of the cities, killed hundreds of thousands of civilians? And the Israelis certainly can’t tell me that the genocide they suffered from the Nazis is less serious than that of Gaza, simply because they’ve taken out a few thousand persons, while the Nazis took out six million. This is where I fault Judaism, which exasperates rather than honoring the victims of genocide decently. It’s as if there were only one genocide in history, that of the Jews during the Second World War. It seems like you can say anything you want about all the other exterminated peoples, but no one at the global level has spoken in the terms in which people are speaking today after the declarations of Bishop Williamson.
 
Now see, that is not allowed. In his innocence, Fr. Abrahamowicz actually believed that the truth is a valid defense, and that all human beings have equal dignity and worth. That is in fact the basis of Catholic social teaching. But as George Orwell informed us, some are more equal than others. And certainly the least equal of all humans are the Germans and the Palestinians, and the good Father just happened to mention them both! Now who is it that hates Germans and Palestinians? Answer that, and you can see why Fr. Abrahamowicz had to go.
 
And what positions “distinct from the official ones” of the SSPX are they talking about anyway? You mean like the Church’s traditional views on the Jews that the SSPX has had on their website for years? Ooops. I should have said used to have on their website for years. It seems that a major “purging” has begun, a la Orwell’s 1984, in which anything that contradicts the Party’s (new) line ends up going down the memory hole. Nothing to see here, folks, move along. Except they obviously haven’t purged everything yet, because the letter from Bishop Proenca Sigaud is still there in which he talks about Jews, Communists, and Freemasons (but someone better start taking screen shots).
 
Archbishop Lefebvre himself wrote in a letter dated August 31, 1985 to Pope John Paul II that “Jews, Communists and Freemasons” were the enemies of the Church and were plotting to destroy her. So what has changed since Archbishop Lefebvre wrote that letter? Or since Fr. Denis Fahey, Mgr. George Dillon, Fr. Charles Coughlin, and many popes and saints were saying exactly the same things? The Second Vatican Council devastated the flock, leaving misery, death, moral corruption, and massive loss of faith in its wake. So why should we be so quick to dismiss advice from people who warned against making concessions to the enemies of the Church? Someone has to stand firm until the Church recovers from this catastrophe. That used to the role of the SSPX.
 
It’s possible that Bishop Fellay has negotiated some kind of backroom deal which doubtless includes a red hat for himself and a cozy office in the Vatican. I do so hope I’m wrong, but this sort of Soviet-like, politically correct – let’s call it what it is – pandering, used to be anathama to the SSPX. That is, until the excommunications were lifted last month, after a million rosary bouquet was offered to the Pope  (supposedly without negotiations). But when word came that a certain SSPX priest in a certain seminary was fired at the request of the Vatican, it seems there’s more to the story than just the Pope being moved by the rosary. It seems that something is rotten in Denmark – or could it be in Switzerland?
 
Judging by some of the mealy-mouthed reactions out in tradland, it seems the faithful think it’s appropriate to fire poor Fr. Abrahamowicz to fascilitate reconciliation with Rome. But these capitulators could have had full communion with the Modernists years ago by simply attending their local parishes. So why have they attended the SSPX chapels then, in disobedience to their bishops, if everything is kosher (so to speak) in Rome? There must be some reason they drive 100 miles roundtrip every Sunday to attend the Society’s Masses. What has changed now in the Vatican that everyone suddenly wants reconcilation after 40 years of resistance? I don’t see Tradition restored to Rome. I see a concession that the Latin Mass was never officially abrogated. But when are they going to abrogate the Novus Ordo Mass that was written by a Freemason and six Protestant “advisers”?
 
Poor Archbishop Lefebvre. He might as well have just signed the agreement in 1988 and saved himself a lot of trouble. But hopefully some of his sons will stay true to him and not capitulate to the Modernists. If reconciliation means that the enemies of the Church now indirectly dictate SSPX policy, then maybe it’s time to step back. Perhaps Bishop Williamson will seize the day and not capitulate to the Modernists. He certainly wouldn’t find himself alone. He can hire Fr. Abrahamowicz. He seems to be out of a job.
 
Rorate Caeli has updated its website to add that Fr. Abrahamowicz said the following after the lifting of the excommunications:
In fact, who ordered the injurious decree of “removal” was Joseph Ratzinger, who is still stuck in the Modernist ecumenism of the Second Vatican Council, … , incurring the excommunication reserved to the Modernists. An excommunicate revokes a non-existing censure!

…Traditionalist Catholics CANNOT (sic) neither request nor welcome such a decree, even less embrace and kiss its authors, making believe that this act is a gift of Our Lady.

We pray for Joseph Ratzinger so that he may abjure Modernism and embrace the Catholic faith, and for the Fraternity of Saint Pius X so that it may remain faithful to the work of Archbishop Lefebvre.

But what has he said that the Archbishop didn’t say himself, like when he said that Rome was in apostasy and that the Pope (John Paul II) wasn’t Catholic? (And I find it hard to believe that Fr. Abrahamowicz’s views were totally unknown to the bishops until after he happened to question the Holocaust.)  Archbishop Lefebvre could have been made a Cardinal if he had gone along with the destruction of the Church. But he refused to betray his mission of handing down the Faith as it had been handed to him. I hope his spiritual sons are made of the same stern stuff.

As the Protestant Henry of Navarre once said (in order to claim the French throne): “Paris is worth a Mass.” Maybe some in the SSPX feel that a red hat is worth a Novus Ordo Mass.

  1. There are new developments. It seems Fr. Abrahamowicz was showing clear indications of sedevacantism in his previous sermon, so he was, of course, expelled and dismissed!

    Also, I think it prudent now for the U.S. District to remove the SSPX’s position on the Jews, because the Jews are already antagonized; no need to further do so, but let them dig for it! The Zionist Jews already know of the SSPX’s position, and they just want to use ammunition, namely the article, and twist it to lie. No need to give food to the dogs!!!

    I totally understand what you’re saying, Paul. But as a product of the post-Vatican II Revolution, I’m tired of watching my Catholic leaders fall on their swords. Where are the heirs to the chivalrous Catholic knights? Someone needs to vindicate us. Someone needs to stand tall. 40 years of ecumenism and apologies have brought us the Culture of Death. I’m at the point now where I’m actually ready for the Great Chastisement (or the Great Monarch!). Things can’t go on like this.

  2. I think that right now the SSPX just needs to clean house. Because there are some internal matters right now, that are very grave and very damaging to the SSPX’s credibility, IMHO (outside of Bishop Williamson’s interview)! I agree with you that the SSPX needs many more prayers!!

    On that we can agree. Much prayer! More rosaries! That I can promise to the Society.

  3. SELECTIVE DENIAL — Apr. 21, 2005
    “And the world stood silent.” This is oneof the most indelible Jewish memories of the Holocaust, and one of our mostbitter accusations.
    On Sunday, in the Armenian capital of Yerevan, the90th anniversary of the Armenian genocide – the slaughter of at least 1 millionArmenian civilians by the Turkish Ottoman regime – will be memorialized.
    What does the State of Israel and many of itsAmerican Jewish lobbyists have to say about it, about this first genocide ofthe 20th century? If they were merely standing silent, that would be animprovement. Instead, on the subject of the Armenian genocide, Israel and someUS Jewish organizations, notably the American Jewish Committee, have for manyyears acted aggressively as silencers. In Israel, attempts to broadcastdocumentaries about the genocide on state-run television have been aborted. Aprogram to teach the genocide in public schools was watered down to the pointthat history teachers refused to teach it.
    In the US Congress, resolutions to recognize thegenocide and the Ottoman Turks’ responsibility for it have been snuffed out byTurkey and its right-hand man on this issue, the Israel lobby.

  4. Israel DENIES the Armenian Holocaust, and IS committing SHOAH on the Palestinians TODAY, and they want sympathy ?! Israel allied with APARTHEID South Africa, trading weapons and torture techniques with THOSE “white supremacists”, SELECTIVE suffering, only the Jews should have sympathy and should be mourned. Israel, you collect your own War Criminals, they are walking free inside that APARTHEID wall you are building.

    Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey’s Prime Minister:”With this statement, they have retracted their previous erroneous step.”
    ANKARA (AFP-EJP)—A prominent US Jewish advocacy group has retracted its decision to call the mass killings of Armenians under the Ottoman Empire a genocide, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Friday.
    “The ADL (Anti-Defamation League) has sent us a statement sharing our sensitivity on this issue,” Erdogan was quoted by the Anatolia news agency as saying.
    “With this statement, they have retracted their previous erroneous step.”

  5. There is not a SINGLE written order commanding the “holocaust” from the notoriously picky Germans. But there are VOLUMES from the ZIONISTS–
    May 30, 2007
    All civilians living in Gaza are collectively guilty for Kassam attacks on Sderot, former Sephardi chief rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu has written in a letter to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.
    Eliyahu ruled that there was absolutely no moral prohibition against the indiscriminate killing of civilians during a potential massive military offensive on Gaza aimed at stopping the rocket launchings.
    The letter, published in Olam Katan [Small World], a weekly pamphlet to be distributed in synagogues nationwide this Friday, cited the biblical story of the Shechem massacre (Genesis 34) and Maimonides’ commentary (Laws of Kings 9, 14) on the story as proof texts for his legal decision.
    According to Jewish WAR ETHICS, wrote Eliyahu, an entire city holds collective responsibility for the immoral behavior of individuals. In Gaza, the entire populace is responsible because they do nothing to stop the firing of Kassam rockets.
    (So by his own JEWISH ethics …… collective punishment for CRUCIFYING Christ is justified)
    The former chief rabbi also said it was forbidden to risk the lives of Jews in Sderot or the lives of IDF soldiers for fear of injuring or killing Palestinian noncombatants living in Gaza.
    Eliyahu could not be reached for an interview. However, Eliyahu’s son, Shmuel Eliyahu, who is chief rabbi of Safed, said his father opposed a ground troop incursion into Gaza that would endanger IDF soldiers. Rather, he advocated carpet bombing the general area from which the Kassams were launched, regardless of the price in Palestinian life.
    “If they don’t stop after we kill 100, then we must kill a thousand,” said Shmuel Eliyahu. “And if they do not stop after 1,000 then we must kill 10,000. If they still don’t stop we must kill 100,000, even a million. Whatever it takes to make them stop.”
    (How about SIX MILLION? He just LEGITIMIZED the Nazi conduct. Payback those reparations, Israel).

  6. What if a priest, any priest, was to point out that 19 year-old girls dressed like street prostitutes led weak-minded individuals down a path of unnecessary temption? The same rocks from the same crowd that currently assails Fr. Abrahamowicz would still be thrown.

    What if a priest said that the massive Wall Street frauds encourage working people to disdain their labours to steal, lie and cheat instead? The same would go for comments about drunken, careless sexual encounters being promoted in a time of AIDS.

    Rejoice when these people persecute you for these are the ones that tried to destroy the one who sent you. What will be said of those who made up stories of ethnic cleasing to justify the slaughter of a stranger at the end? Will it be in ink or on computer screen? Nor shall their authority eminate from such a source. Fear the one who can destroy body and soul for unrighteousness.

    Thank you Fr. Abrahamowicz.

  7. In my letter of February 8, I accidentally wrote “19″ year-old girls when I meant “9″ year-old girls. I sincerely apologize for the miscue.

    I think I liked your typo better, Eric. I don’t see how any man could be tempted by a 9 year old girl, no matter what she’s wearing, unless he’s a perv.

  8. Father Abrahamowicz failed to mention two additional genocides committed by the U.S., namely Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Add them to the basket.

    You’re absolutely correct to bring this up, Carlos. Those were two horrific war crimes committed in the name of every American citizen. I can tell you how they have bamboozled us Americans into not seeing these acts as war crimes. They teach us as children in school that if we had not dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the war would have lasted another 10 years and we would have lost about a million soldiers. In fact, that’s an absolute falsehood that I only discovered for myself fairly recently. The Japanese Emperor had been trying to sue for peace for at least a month beforehand, but the Freemason Harry Truman refused to settle for anything less than total surrender. The only condition the Emperor was requesting was that he remain in place as Emperor. As it happened, the Allies allowed him to remain as Emperor anyway. The truth is that those who created the atomic bomb wanted to try it out, and they chose the only 2 cities in Japan that had any sizeable Catholic populations. This is not a coincidence if you understand Freemasonry and whom they serve. Nagasaki had been the center of Japanese Catholicism since the time of St. Francis Xavier converted many Japanese centuries earlier. Google ‘Japanese Catholics of Nagasaki’ and you’ll see how after the Jesuits were expelled from Japan, the Japanese Catholics kept the faith for nearly 2 centuries without any priests at all! The American pilot who dropped the bomb on Nagasaki used the copola atop the Catholic cathedral as the target for his bomb. May God forgive us for our complicity in crimes against humanity.
