Catholic Candle note: Catholic Candle normally examines particular issues thoroughly, at length, using the teachings of St. Thomas Aquinas and the other Doctors of the Church. By contrast, our feature CC in brief, gives an extremely short answer to a reader’s question. We invite readers to submit their own questions.
CC in brief
Q. Why does the N-SSPX now lean liberal with its followers?
A. If a traditional Catholic or a Society doesn’t fight against liberalism every day, gradualism will take over and they will become liberal after a time. The New SSPX no longer fights against liberalism daily as Archbishop Lefebvre did. They may merely mention the problem of liberalism, but are not fighting against it.
