Dear Fathers and Faithful,
We have received many responses relating to our recent email regarding our disassociation with Father Raphael. The news has shocked and caused confusion amongst many of the faithful. This is understandable. What hope they had left of having a priest visit (who hasn't compromised on the doctrine and teaching of the Catholic Church) has seemingly been dashed. We can assure you that we also feel your pain and can relate to the subsequent bewilderment being experienced.
The situation regarding our disassociation with Father Raphael has caused us much heartache. It is never a pleasant task being the bearer of bad news and it grieved us to have to deliver it. It was not a decision based on emotion - it was a decision based on a serious matter.
As Father Raphael has confirmed that he will not be coming to Australia (or to any other English-speaking country), it is not necessary for us to reveal any further details regarding this matter to the faithful here in Australia (or in the US, UK or elsewhere). We wish to protect Father's reputation in as far as it is possible, and if we were to say more on this matter we would be guilty of detraction in these particular circumstances. We ask for your understanding, and please do not be upset by our decision not to reveal more. We are not angry or resentful towards Father and we continue to pray for him. We ask that you too pray for Father and may God shower him with Our Lord's richest blessings.
As Catholics who won’t attend Masses of priests who compromise the faith (like SSPX, Bishop Williamson’s Fake Resistance and Fr. Pfeiffer’s fake Bishop & more) the reality is we are entering and living a time of the Catacombs, protecting and shielding the faith. We are living in a time of crisis, a time prophesised by Our Lady of Good Success and Our Lady of Fatima. Despite the severe shortage of uncompromising priests we can take great comfort in knowing we always have Our Lord and Our Holy Mother to turn to and to guide us through these times, along with the Rosary and Scapular. Our Lord will never abandon us; instead he will strengthen us through the Queen of Heaven.
What an inconceivable blessing for us weak creatures to be able to be united in the trenches fighting for the return of Christ the King and the Immaculate Heart of Mary in these latter days.
In union of prayers
Yours in JMJ,
Luke Ross, Coordinator
