Good Success, SSPX, Quito etc.

Apostolate of Our Lady of Good Success Expands

Dear Miss Horvat,

Ave Maria, Thank you for all your wonderful work in spreading Devotion to Our Lady of Good Success all these years! I have great Devotion to Her. I have Her statue and have doing my best since 2003 to make Her known.

I know Mrs. Kathy Heckenkamp as well. We have been friends since 2003 when I joined The Apostolate of Our Lady of Good Success. When I lived in Albany, New York, I started my own Apostolate: The Society of Lady of Good Success...It hasn't taken off like I would of liked. And I thought when I moved here to York, PA, I thought it would if taken off even more since I was going to a Traditional Latin Chapel.

But not really. I have since in the last couple of months put it on Facebook. And have around 148 people.. Not as many as some groups, but it's picking up!

And now with all this confusion with Our Lady's title down in Quito. The Modernists have infiltrated for sure!

May The Good Lord and His Holy Mother, Mary of Good Success always Bless, protect and guide you and everyone at Tradition in Action!



SSPX, Quito etc.


I find it to be quite a mystery that the SSPX, in these past several years, has been seeking alignment with the Post Conciliar regime that is imbued in homosexualism - a sin, according to traditional Catholic thought, that cries out to Heaven for vengeance.

When will the followers of this organization inquire of it's leadership as to why exactly such a course is being followed?

     With best wishes,



Atila & Quito

Dear TIA,

Thank you for the work you do - I’ve been helped enormously by your and others thoughts on Vatican II, especially Dr Carol Byrnes’ series. The articles are most fascinating and sobering at the same time. (latest article here)

May I ask if Atila’s sequence (here, here and here) of his experiences at Quito this year will be published soon?

     God bless.


TIA responds:

Thank you for your kind words.

Mr. Guimarães plans to post the other parts of his report in the order he mentioned here, as soon as he finds the time to write them.

SSPX Praises Progressivism... Yet Again

Dear TIA,

I've been following your reports on the SSPX [e.g. here and here] for a while now. I wanted to bring to your attention a recent news article by SSPX (2/2/19), in which they not-so-subtly promote a new progressivist book, which is a collection of interviews with Novus Ordo-ites. The book is called Mind, Heart and Soul: Intellectuals and the Path to Rome. SSPX specifically refers to the interview with Bishop James D. Conley of Lincoln, Nebraska.

The SSPX news article promoting the new progressivist book is here.

There are two things I'd like to point out in this news article:

1) SSPX called Conley's remarks on the tradition of the Church a "clear-sighted observation." As such, it seems that SSPX is publicly praising Bishop Conley's views on tradition. However, Conley's version of tradition is the same as Benedict's "hermeneutic of continuity," [analyzed here as the 'hermeneutics of rupture'] which is based on the false idea that doctrine can "develop" (i.e., change). Here is proof - on October 19, 2011, in the Denver Catholic Register, Conley stated:

"The correct way of understanding the renewal in the Church, particularly in the liturgy, is what Benedict called the 'hermeneutic of continuity or reform.' This approach is a renewal in the tradition of the one Church, which the Lord has given to us.

"True renewal happens only when there is continuity and organic development within the tradition of the Church. The guiding principles of our liturgical renewal have been just that: to find a way to preserve and honor the tradition of the Church while reanimating it in a way that can be understood by modern man. This is the task of evangelization; not only in liturgy, but in all facets of the Christian life."

Why is SSPX cheering Conley, when he not only praises the liturgical reforms in the Church, but also believes in the progressivist "hermeneutic of continuity," which is actually just a camouflaged way of undermining and destroying tradition?

2) Also, the remarks of Conley that SSPX mentioned were initially referring to people wanting to change the doctrine of the Church on marriage and sexuality, and how Conley says this doctrine cannot be changed even by the Pope. If the SSPX is in favor of traditional views on marriage and sexuality, why do they promote the progressivist Theology of the Body in their Angelus magazine?

In their July-August 2018 issue of the Angelus, SSPX not only had several paragraphs praising the TOB idea of sex ("free, total, faithful, fruitful" - which are terms used in TOB) and Natural Family Planning (another post-Conciliar TOB innovation), but SSPX also stated: "Husband and wife, through that mutual gift of themselves, which is specific and exclusive to them alone, develop that union of two persons in which they perfect one another, cooperating with God in the generation and rearing of new lives." All of this talk of "gifting" and "union" has the clear stench of Theology of the Body, which is Progressivism's way of destroying Catholic doctrine on marriage.

Why is SSPX promoting progressivist views on marriage if they claim to be in favor of traditional views on marriage?

Perhaps all of this is a preparation for SSPX's upcoming merge with the progressivist system. In any case, I'd really love to know your thoughts on all of this - am I off the mark?

In case it gets removed, I am attaching the DCR issue (with Conley's praise of Benedict's "hermeneutic of continuity") as a PDF here.

     God bless,


TIA responds:

Dear K.W.,

Thank you for your support and for your collaboration.

We are asking one of our writers to analyze the book Mind, Heart and Soul: Intellectuals and the Path to Rome, as well as the interview with Bishop James D. Conley of Lincoln.

Then, we will get back to you.

Here we will just say that it seems you are on target regarding your criticism of the Theology of the Body, whose nefarious fruits we are seeing in the dissolute morality that Progressivism introduced into the sacred relationship of the married life.
