or an (Im)modest wedding in the FSSPX
**** WARNING IMMODEST DRESS ****
The scandal plagued FSSPX group in Post Falls, Idaho.
Recently we covered the FSSPX of Great Britain’s “St. Michael’s School Child Protection Policy, Procedure and Guidance” document which is absolutely filthy and morally disgusting. This led us to inquire just who is driving the bus? Previously we wrote about Bp. Fellay baptizing bells — while one of the co-participants who rang the bells was a woman wearing a very immodest short dress with cap sleeves — and rhetorically asked “Is Fellay changing modernist Rome or modernist Rome changing Fellay?”
Bp. Fellay has no problems with immodesty.
And now onto a wedding with immodestly dressed guests and members of the wedding party. The wedding happened this past summer at Immaculate Conception Church in Post Falls, Idaho. Immaculate Conception is the 2nd largest SSPX enclave in the United States of America after St. Mary’s in Kansas and we refer to it as scandal plagued because of their association with the convicted pedophile Kevin Sloniker and the disturbing rumors which continue to swirl about the academy connected to the church.
The snapshots and one photo posted below were all found on social media. The behavior and the immodesty demonstrated in them leads us at Call Me Jorge... to sadly conclude that the FSSPX doesn’t have far to go to finish assimilating with the Novus Ordo.
Yes, we know that not every guest at a wedding is necessarily a Catholic nor do they understand what modesty is. The responsibility for immodestly dressed guests lies squarely with the priest and the couple who are to get married. It is prudent for them to explain in the wedding invitation the type of respectful dress that is expected when one is present at a Catholic Mass in front of the Blessed Sacrament. We could give them a mulligan or the benefit of the doubt if it were only a few guests but when it includes members of the wedding party it leads us to conclude that the priest sadly wasn’t properly formed at the SSPX seminary nor was the couple properly catechised on modesty.
How will the FSSPX “fight the modernists” in Rome and restore Catholic tradition in the world when the Society is failing at the basics like this? Does this ‘bastion’ of Catholicism and its members understand the Catholic Faith? Or do they choose to practice it only when it suits them?
Please keep this young married couple and the priest in your prayers.
Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.

In addition to her above mentioned book, Colleen Hammond has a Pinterest board on modest fashion which is an excellent resource where women can find modest clothes which are stylish.

It's obvious that some of the SSPX laity are ignorant and/or infected by the world as far as their sense of acceptable attire.ReplyDelete
Let's face it, some people are incorrigible and obstinate, having a stinky attitude where they "don't like being dictated to by the Church."
However, I'd tend to focus on the SSPX clergy, who, as you rightly point out, should be instructing their flocks and laying down the law to the recalcitrant. What you've exposed is primarily a failing on the part of the clergy. But what do you expect,they're too busy dreaming of the day when they can reconcile with Frankie and then triumphantly arrive in Rome with a bevy of mini-skirted bimbos to fight the Modernists.
Out of respect for the church, please dress appropriately.ReplyDelete
IS THERE A DRESS CODE? Out of respect to the Blessed Sacrament please wear modest formal attire. Ladies are requested to wear head covering in the church. Thank you!
Your wedding is currently on their facebook page.

Please keep in mind that the wedding ceremony will take place in the church, and as such we ask that attire be modest and appropriate.
Skirts and dresses should go past the knee
Tops should not be low-cut and should cover the shoulders
Veils are required, some will be provided
Ties are recommended

Are we playing "Let's catch SSPXers doing it right!"
The blogger/owner (?) (I don't know anything about anyone connected to this blog) has exposed Bp. Fellay during a ceremony in close proximity to a woman whose attire falls outside the definition of modest dress. This looks bad because... er... it *is* bad. Also exposed were the bride (with the similarly exposed shoulders) and the positively beaming priest.
The question still stands: Did a member of the SSPX clergy properly catechize the lovely affianced couple and if so how did it come about that a wedding dress so judiciously chosen (I have married sisters - I know the scrupulous care taken in the selection of bridal attire) ended up being immodest?
The SSPX kisses up to the Novus Ordo and it was only a matter of time before they became Novus Ordo.ReplyDelete
Anyone with a clue needs to get out and attend a Sedevacantist chapel asap.
The die hard Traditional Catholics are not going to change the SSPX.If anything they will change you into a proper ecumenical Novus Ordo idolater.

I know this comment comes a year later, but -- I got married at TLM church (everything in the Latin rite). We all dressed modestly and appropriately (veils on correctly, etc). We even asked guests in the invitations to follow the dress code. Did they? Some did, a lot didn't. It was an embarrassment.ReplyDelete
Girls were showing up in disgusting dresses. One wore spaghetti straps so her tattoos could show, which ruined a few what-would-have-been good photos. I didn't even want to invite certain people, but to keep peace with my future in-laws... ugh. Looking back, I wish I took a more upper hand. My husband shrugs because he's been to many weddings in his family and says it's just how people dress. *sigh*
Commenting much later than when the OP posted. Does this really matter? To a degree, yes. But to the point of creating a blog article to attack someone's wedding? Come on people. If you are that bothered by it, speak with the priest. Sinning by calumny is no way to right wrongs in the Church. Especially when they are relatively small in this particular case.ReplyDelete
Not to mention publicly sharing unauthorized photos and videos of minors!Delete
I see a lot of butt hurt Williamson Trads have learned what the internet is and that is not the mark of the beast. With these developments they will soon be modernist and all will be lost.ReplyDelete
Although I agree that modesty is extremely important (and it is lacking in the examples you cited), in their defense, these photos feature a wedding. In weddings, there's always non-sspxers (relatives, friends) at Mass. This happens with all traditional groups, when they have a baptism or a marriage. There's always some outsiders attending that one time, and brings immodesty with them. And even if these were regular SSPX attendees, like others have said, some people are either ignorant or stubborn. But to blame the SSPX at large for these cases seems like an exaggeration.ReplyDelete
