“By their fruits…” SSPX Growing

“By their fruits…” SSPX Growing

Catholic Tradition just won’t stop growing! Vocations continue to steadily abound within the SSPX, as do families at its chapels—where the youth are usually predominant.

It’s undeniable that the Society of St. Pius X (and thus the movement of Catholic Tradition) continues by the grace of God to steadily grow throughout the world—and the statistics prove it!

statisticsHere at SSPX.ORG, we have created a new page that provides some general statistics about the SSPX, just updated with the most recent information available. In addition to links for 2 colorful maps showing the Society’s international and national work, we also have some basic info about some traditional communities and independent chapels that are closely affiliated with us.

We would also like to direct our readers to the colorful charts being offered at FSSPX.ORG (website of the General House in Menzingen, Switzerland) which graphically demonstrate the increasing presence of the SSPX throughout the world. Note some of the captions are in French.

It is also noteworthy that the first graph gives a total of 589 priests, while our general statistics gives a figure of 590—in anticipation of the priestly ordination that will take place in Post Falls, Idaho tomorrow (Saturday, September 20). Please keep this young alter Christus in your prayers!

Another item that might interest our readers is the addition of the English translation of all 3 founding documents of the Society of St. Pius X. Images of the actual original documents in French and Latin have been included as well as some pertinent links about their historical context and importance.  Source


If “By their fruits shall ye know them” means anything, it means that the SSPX is being greatly blessed by God.  This has implications for Catholics everywhere who are concerned to protect and deepen their faith in the midst of this, the worst ever crisis to afflict the Church. Spot the implications – ready, steady, GO!

    I know we have a few threads about the Tridentine Mass, and, especially about the time that Bishop Fellay was in discussion with the Vatican about the Doctrinal Preamble. This video on youtube courtesy of Michael Matt and the Remnant newspaper, says a great deal and is a must see. Applicable? If only because of Archbishop Lefebvre and also of Bishop Fellay in their discussions with the Vatican over the years.

    I have attended Mass in St Leonards and St Margaret’s in Edinburgh and the SSPX church in Hamburg, and Manchester. They all share one thing in common the true faith, it hits you the moment you enter. So yes every Catholic should whenever possible visit a Church of the Society of St Pius X. And the FSSP and the ICKSP!
