This is a very humble and honest defense justifying, as I think, the opposition of Bishop Fellay's actions by certain SPPX priests, including Father Joseph Pheiffer. This video is a bit long, but worth listening. Father Chazal is a holy and wise priest.
For those who do not know, basically to sum things up Bishop Fellay has been having talks with Rome to try to be reconised fully by Rome. But certain priests, not just the five priests who are more spoken out, but even non-SSPX priests, are opposed to this because it is uniting with the errors of the Second Vatican Council, which Rome still embraces. I do not want to get into a deep talk about Bishop Fellay here, for I think at heart he is a good priest, but I do believe he is behaving unjustly and as a tyrant. He has even told priests in Asia to refuse absolution to these five priests! Who does Fellay think he is? What authority and reason does this man justify this with? Even if Bishop Fellay believes the priests opposing him and speaking against him to be wrong, is it really just, or even sinless, to command for these priests to be refused absolution? This is pure tyranny and has no justification since there is no obvious grave, public sin, and it only shows the tyranny of Fellay, who has kept Bishop Williamson locked up like a prisoner in London, even after Germany has dropped the charges against Williamson. Fellay even refused Bishop Williamson the right to attend the recent General Chapter and this is unjust and a violation of Williamson's privilege as a bishop of the Society to attend the General Chapter? What justification at all did Fellay have for this? None. He proves himself an unjust tyrant. __________________ My most dear lord, king and husband,
The hour of my death now drawing on, the tender love I owe you forceth me, my case being such, to commend myself to you, and to put you in remembrance with a few words of the health and safeguard of your soul which you ought to prefer before all worldly matters, and before the care and pampering of your body, for the which you have cast me into many calamities and yourself into many troubles. For my part, I pardon you everything, and I wish to devoutly pray God that He will pardon you also. For the rest, I commend unto you our daughter Mary, beseeching you to be a good father unto her, as I have heretofore desired. I entreat you also, on behalf of my maids, to give them marriage portions, which is not much, they being but three. For all my other servants I solicit the wages due them, and a year more, lest they be unprovided for. Lastly, I make this vow, that mine eyes desire you above all things.
