I just wanted to give some attention to the recent SSPX Priesthood Ordinations in Winona, Minnesota. Four new priests were ordained for the SSPX. They are Fr. Thomas Brooks (Sacramento, CA), Fr. Michael Brown (St. Mary’s, KS), Fr. Dylan Flanery (St. Louis, MO), and Fr. Stephen Reid (Phoenix, AZ).
The following are reports and pictures:
May Our Lord bless these new priests for the Society. May he keep them firm in the True Faith, with great love for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the salvation of souls. May he keep them strong soldiers in the Church Militant, fighting against the Modernism that is devouring the Church.
“O Priest! You are not yourself because you are God. You are not of yourself because you are the servant and minister of Christ. You are not you own because you are the spouse of the Church. You are not yourself because you are the mediator between God and man. You are not from yourself because you are nothing. What then are you? Nothing and everything. O Priest! Take care lest what was said to Christ on the cross be said to you: “He saved others, himself he cannot save!” ~St. Norbert
“The worthy priest is an angel of purity in mind and body, a cherub of light and knowledge, a seraph
of love and Charity, an apostle of zeal in work and sanctity, a little god on earth in power and authority, in patience and benignity. He is the living image of Christ in this world, of Christ watching, praying, preaching, catechizing, working, weeping, going from town to town, from village to village, suffering, agonizing, sacrificing Himself and dying for the souls created to His image and likeness. . . He is the light of those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death. He is the destroyer of error, schisms and heresies, the converter of sinners, the sanctifier of the just, the strength of the weak, the consolation of the afflicted, the treasure of the poor. He is the confusion of hell, the glory of heaven, the terror of demons, the joy of angels, the ruin of Satan’s kingdom, the establishment of Christ’s empire, the ornament of the Church…”
