Correctio Filialis Signature List Grows, but Still Few Traditional Priests….. October 4, 2017

……..and zero from the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, that I can tell.

Fr. Michael Rodriguez was added with the latest update of signatories from Monday.  I have a hope that the organizers of the Correctio Filialis will reach out to some other priests I suggested.  Then we might see some Fraternity priests on the list, if they have the gumption to sign.

One or two additional FSSPX priests signed.  That’s fine, but there seems little broad-based movement there to endorse this filial correction.

I can certainly imagine some reasons why traditional priests would not want to sign. Indeed, there may exist directives in their orders not to do so.

But I pray the list of signatories will explode from far beyond the current 219 (which is wonderful and a great blessing in and of itself, but more would be far better).  From my standpoint – and I’m sure there would be repercussions I would not like – every single traditional priest should sign this filial correction.  But Catholic moral behavior is not governed strictly by consequences.  If something is right and just and even a moral imperative to perform (which I would argue, given the threat posed by the errors emanating from this pontificate and the potential for far worse in the future, this is a moral imperative), it must be performed, the consequences be damned.  At least, that’s what I always hear when I am told I have to be obedient to the post-conciliar establishment, no matter how disastrous the result of that obedience has been.

Surely, that argument cuts both ways?  Or was it always just about expedience?

Here is a golden opportunity for tradition-loving priests to take a concrete action against the continued rape of Holy Mother Church and possibly towards a restoration of same………sign the @#$%&*!! petition.  Or never bemoan the state of the Church again? (or, for tender ears, I could say it nicer: if you do not, how can you expect the laity to listen to  your later complaints regarding the increasingly sad state of the Church?).

And yes, your prudential reasons for not signing have been considered and found wanting.  Tantrumstompo has spoken.

Rant concluded……….maybe.  No don’t watch that movie.

Spot on. What is needed here is unbridled courage. Either sign or shut the &@%* up….

BULLS. EYE.

The purity of the Faith is the supreme consideration.
The Pope’s obligation as Vicar of Christ is to proclaim and defend Divine Revelation, whole and entire.
I think every single priest who is still truly Catholic should sign.

Father Rodriguez gave an awesome sermon, and a class last night, on the Filial Correction, it’s significance, why it was good that it was sent to Pope, etc. The sermon is already up at the SVFONLINE.org Beatrice Rodriguez And thank you, Larry, from the bottom of my motherly 💓!

Anything for Father. I think he knows that already. You are certainly welcome. Give my best to all the good Rodriguez family out there. You have my prayers.

“From my standpoint – and I’m sure there would be repercussions I would not like – every single traditional priest should sign this filial correction.”

I would agree, as long as we have thought this through to its worst-case scenario.

If we are willing to be shut down- no TLM for the foreseeable future- and have our priests deprived of their faculties and their orders supressed, and then have to wrestle with the resulting decisions to be made, then encourage them to sign.

If we’re not willing to undergo that, then we need to quit making prudential decisions for other people.

Well said.

It’s a terrible situation we find ourselves in. Pray for these priests.

Candid question for you, Tantum: Have you asked your own Ecclesia Dei priests in person to sign it, or asked them why they have declined to do so?
