Season 5, Trad Controversies, Episode 9: A Communion Rail or Guillotine?

Father Anthony Cekada

Over the past 25+ years, the Society of Pius V has maintained the same position of refusing the sacraments to Catholics who have received sacraments from clergy either from or associated with the line of traditional bishops stemming from Archbishop Thuc. While holding a position over such a period of time is commendable if correct, a false position is not proven true by the length of time held nor is the holding of is so long anything but a tragedy. Such is the case of the SSPV’s policy of refusing sacraments to good Catholics.

Father Cekada joins us as we examine the foundation of the SSPV’s argument and prove it has no basis in traditional Catholic principles or practices. Digging into the topic, Father Cekada will guide the listener through the massive smoke and mirrors to the root of the SSPV’s dispute. Much of what we will cover has never been responded to by the SSPV as they have nothing to respond with, and we sincerely hope this episode will clarify the issue for the listener who can with confidence see the SSPV’s arguments for what they are, a mirage.

Our hope is that through this episode good Catholics on both sides of this issue will come to understand based upon true Catholic principles, and this unnecessary controversy, a controversy which has destroyed homes, families, potential marriages, and scandalized both traditional Catholics and even Novus Ordo adherents will end once and for all. Long has the plea gone out to the SSPV to reexamine a position which was created out of malice in the beginning. Let us hope and pray that as more of this information permeates into their group and their priests and laity see the truth, they will renounce their former position and traditional Catholics of these various groups can unite for the Glory of God and the restoration of His Church.
