    When will the neo-sspx "reconcile", rather exorcise, the profaned secular novus ordo altars they worship on for their "extraordinary mass"?

    Recently Bishop Fellay celebrated a Solemn High Mass in the Netherlands inside a new church they just bought. Invoking, they restored the building back to its original worship:

    The ceremony began with the rite of reconciliation that the Roman Pontifical prescribes for restoring a sacred building to Catholic worship after it has been used for secular purposes.

    Is there something missing? Why has the object for them focused only a building to restore and not the secularly profaned altars the neo-sspx worships on many times within their own "reconciliation" inside the novus ordo?

    The neo-sspx has worshiped too on the altars in St. Peter's Basilica many times. Why hasn't that building been "reconciled", and exorcised, taking away from its use of novus ordo secular purposes?

    Seems only if the material profile fits Bishop Fellay will he give it pomp?

    This is how Judas Machabeus purified the temple:

    Then Judas, and his brethren said: Behold our enemies are discomfited: let us go up now to cleanse the holy places and to repair them. And all the army assembled together, and they went up into mount Sion. And they saw the sanctuary desolate, and the altar profaned, and the gates burnt, and shrubs growing up in the courts as in a forest, or on the mountains, and the chambers joining to the temple thrown down. And they rent their garments, and made great lamentation, and put ashes on their heads: And they fell face down to the ground on their faces, and they sounded with the trumpets of alarm, and they cried towards heaven.

    Then Judas appointed men to fight against them that were in the castle, till they had cleansed the holy places. And he chose priests without blemish, whose will was set upon the law of God: And they cleansed the holy places, and took away the stones that had been defiled into an unclean place. And he considered about the altar of holocausts that had been profaned, what he should do with it. And a good counsel came into their minds, to pull it down: lest it should be a reproach to them, because the Gentiles had defiled it; so they threw it down.

    And they laid up the stones in the mountain of the temple in a convenient place, till there should come a prophet, and give answer concerning them. Then they took whole stones according to the law, and built a new altar according to the former: And they built up the holy places, and the things that were within the temple: and they sanctified the temple, and the courts. And they made new holy vessels, and brought in the candlestick, and the altar of incense, and the table into the temple. And they put incense upon the altar, and lighted up the lamps that were upon the candlestick, and they gave light in the temple. -I Machabees chapter 4
