Diocese Denies SSPX Couple to Become Godparents

A married couple attending mass in the church of the Society of Saint Pius X in New York was denied to be the godparents of their niece in Buffalo diocese.

According to sspx.org (May 1) the decision was made by Sister Regina Murphy, the interim chancellor of the diocese, and confirmed by auxiliary Bishop Edward Grosz.

Sister Regina wrote that the couple practices its “Catholic faith within a church that is not in union with the Church of Rome and which has rejected the absolute [sic!] authority of the Holy Father and many of the reforms of the Second Vatican Council”.

The child was finally baptized in a chapel of the Society of Saint Pius X on April 15 with the selected godparents.

The U.S. District of the Society of Saint Pius X has informed the Vatican of this and hopes [probably in vain] for a clarification.

I wonder what The Spirit would have to say to the Church in NY these days.

Should read:

Any bIshop or priest who is opposed to Humanae Vitae is therefore not in communion with Rome. IMH

I think Sr Poly Ester, is not being very charitable ( and I do not mean the UCCCCCCCCCB collection type).
I have been to baptisms where neither of the Godparents were Catholic!
I have been to baptisms where the Godparents were both (card carrying, homo loving, pro abort, anti Catholic, nose pierced, tattoo sporting, idiots) and they were just fine with the church.
Hey what is the big deal? The …More

Hey what is the big deal? The Most Merciful, Holy Father has allowed communion for the protestants in Germany. Whats the big deal? Might they actually want to love and encourage orthodoxy in the Catholic Church/catholic church, if they attend the SSPX?

The bishop [Bishop Richard J. Malone of Buffalo] -- who earned his stripes in the Boston Archdiocese where the sex abuse scandal was first revealed by The Boston Globe -- had to be pushed five years into his tenure to take the first step toward transparency in Buffalo.

Isn't it curious how the sanctimonious Sister Regina Murphy is so very concerned about the godparents of an infant about to be baptized while this perverted crap has been going on in her diocese for decades?

Where was your outrage, Sister Murphy, when Catholic priests were engaged in perverted homosexual relations with young children? Were you or the bishop complaining then? We didn't hear you.

@ACLumsden Communion with Rome is not merely juridical. It is also doctrinal. Any bIshop or priest who is Humanae Vitae is therefore not in communion with Rome. IMHO, it's safe to assume a greater percentage of SSPX clerics are pro HV than are other clerics in Western Europe, and N America and Australia

Hmmm....... sensationalism, yet again. How true is the Sister's claim, and, is the SSPX not in communion with Rome?
