SSPX Organizes Ecumenical Pilgrimage to Pray for Persecuted Christians Throughout the World

(Fulda) On Saturday and Sunday, the 7th and 8th of September, the 10th National Pilgrimage of the German District of the Priestly Society of St. Pius X will take place. The Pilgrimage is traditionally carried to Fulda to celebrate the Traditional Rite of the Mass for the consecration of Germany to commemorate the Virgin Mary, which was completed in 1954 by the German bishops.

The theme of the pilgrimage in 2013, is the persecution of Christians. They prayed for their loyalty to the faith in difficult times and the persecuted Christians in the world. More than 100,000 Christians are killed for their faith each year.

The pilgrimage of the German national pilgrimage will begin on Saturday afternoon in front of the Stadtschloss City Palace with a Marian procession through the city. The two-day prayer meeting will again be held in the ballroom of the Old Orangery at Castle Garden, which belongs to the Maritim Hotel. On Saturday evening at 18:30 a solemn High Mass will be celebrated in the Traditional Rite. At night, the Catholic youth movement will keep a prayer vigil before the altar.

On Sunday, at 8 o' clock, a presentation by Norbert Clasen about persecution of Christians will take place: For Islamic Tolerance in Past and Present. At 9:30 a solemn High Mass will follow. The celebrant is the new German District Superior Father Firmin Udressy. The national pilgrimage will be concluded with the prayer of Consecration to Mar in which the Mother of God is beseeched to return Germany again to the Mother of God and Virgin Mary.

The National Pilgrimage is open to all Christians who are willing to support the concern. It is expected to have around 1000 participants from all over Germany.

SSPX Ordains 2 Priests in Regensburg Diocese

(Zaitzkofen)  Bishop Alfonso de Galarreta has ordained two priests, Franz Amberger and the Czech Ludek Cekavy at the Priestly Seminary of the Heart of Jesus (Zaitzkofen).  Auxiliary Bishop Alfonso de Galarreta preached in French which was translated into German by the Rector of the Seminary, Father Frey.

The Bishop preached about the priesthood:  The priest has been chosen from among men to mediate the divine for men.  His mission is primarily of a supernatural nature.  The center of the priestly life is the Holy Mass.

He complained that the Bishop of Regensburg was named yesterday (30 July) [sic] to be the head of the Congregation of the Doctrine and the Faith, even though he denied Mary's perpetual virginity.  It is not acceptable that the leader of the Congregation holds a heresy.

Upon this [the Virgin Birth] it did -- says Msgr Muller -- "not  deviate from physiological particularities in the natural process of birth (such as something like the non opening of the birth canal, the non-injury of the hymen and not experiencing the pains of birth), rather it's in the healing and saving influence of the Grace of the Savior on human nature."

Bishop Muller ordained five priests on Saturday.

SSPX Benedictine Says Mass at Desolate 1,000 Year Old Monastery


Pius Benedictine Saying Mass at
Michealsberg Monastery
At the end of the thousand year history of the Benedictine Abbey on the Michealsberg there is yet another Old Mass being said for which the old monastery had been built in the first place.

(, Siegburg)  On May 25th the SSPX Benedictine Bernhard Huber said the levitical High Mass in the Abbey Church of St. Michealsberg in Siegburg.

The 40,000 population city of Siegburg is some 35 km south east of Cologne.

The local Benedictine Abbey has been closed after an almost 1,000 year history.  It will in the meantime be transformed into a hotel and serve as an Old Liberal adult miseducation.

The house full of glory is in desolation

Father Huber celebrated Mass at the Michealsberg as part of a pilgrimage with about 100 traditionalists from the surrounding area.

At the end of the Mass they sang the hymn "A house full of glory shines far over the land, from every stone built by God's mighty hand."

The text of this song was written by the poet and priest, Fr. Joseph Mohr (1848 +), at the moment he saw the now dissolved Abbey on the Michealsberg.

The Vatican is helping the Archdiocese of Cologne Hop

The Old Mass at the Michealsberg was clearly only possible after an intervention from the Vatican.

This is from a report at the German website of the SSPX ''.

Because in his sermon, Father Huber thanked the Vatican authorities for the permission to be allowed to celebrate the pilgrimage Mass.

It was not mentioned that tho authorities of the Archdiocese of Cologne were causing difficulties.
