Resistance Mis-Perception

+
JMJ

I have an edition of the 'Gladium' - a glossy newsletter put out by the 'resistance'.

In it is an article written by Fr. Hewko and I want to highlight one section:

"All the errors which we [popes] have condemned are now professed, adopted and supported by the authorities of the [Conciliar] Church. Is this possible? Unless you do something to continue this Tradition of the Church which we [popes] have given you, all of it shall disappear. Souls will be lost!" (Abp. Lefebvre, Consecration Sermon, Jun 30, 1988 - According to Fr. Hewko)

The full text of the sermon can be found here at SSPXasia, here's a fuller context - can you see what Fr. Hewko added?
It seems to me, my dear brethren, that I am hearing the voices of all these Popes - since Gregory XVI, Pius IX, Leo XIII, St. Pius X, Benedict XV, Pius XI, Pius XII - telling us: "Please, we beseech you, what are you going to do with our teachings, with our predications, with the Catholic Faith? Are you going to abandon it? Are you going to let it disappear from this earth? Please, please, continue to keep this treasure which we have given you. Do not abandon the faithful, do not abandon the Church! Continue the Church! Indeed, since the Council, what we condemned in the past the present Roman authorities have embraced and are professing. How is it possible? We have condemned them: Liberalism, Communism., Socialism, Modernism, Sillonism. All the errors which we have condemned are now professed, adopted and supported by the authorities of the Church. Is it possible? Unless you do something to continue this Tradition of the Church which we have given to you, all of it shall disappear. Souls shall be lost." (What the Archbishop actually said....)
Normally the brackets "[]" are used editorially to modify 'another person's words - making it clear that it was inserted by the editor not the original writer.

So which words are Fr. Hewko's?

The words 'popes' and 'conciliar'.

Why?

Because the 'resistance' does not believe that the authorities under Pope Francis are authorities of the Catholic Church.
