Second International Declaration

in Support of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI

A Call to Catholic Action

Pope Benedict XVI is at this moment under an all-out media assault for his recent decision to heal a division in the Church by lifting the excommunications of the four bishops of the Society of St. Pius X.  


With great urgency, the undersigned are asking people of good will, Catholic and non-Catholic, to join them in raising an immediate defense against this gross injustice perpetrated against the Sovereign Pontiff. Please consider adding your name to the Second International Declaration in Support of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI.  All that is required is your name, title (if there is one), academic credentials (if appropriate), and occupation or apostolic association. (Please click here to add your name.)  The list of signers will be refreshed on the hour here on The Remnant website for the next several days, after which the Declaration will be sent to a contact in Rome, who, with God’s help, will deliver it directly to the Holy Father. Please spread the word!


Clearly, the Holy Father needs his loyal subjects to stand in his defense and that of the Church he shepherds at this critical moment. We beg you to storm heaven with prayers for him and for the success of this initiative. God save the Pope! MJM



His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI PP
Apostolic Palace
Via Del Pellegrino
Citta Del Vaticano 00120
Vatican City State

February 03, 2009

Feast of St. Blaise, Bishop and Martyr

Your Holiness:

A year ago Catholics from around the world subscribed to an International Declaration in Support of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI to express their allegiance to the Supreme Pontiff in the midst of a “storm of protest” staged by the mass media and various pressure groups over the content of the traditional Good Friday prayer for the conversion of the Jewish people as revised by Your Holiness.  The Declaration noted that this attempt by the forces of world opinion to arrogate to themselves the role of “reviewing” the Church’s prayers was “symptomatic of a situation in which it is becoming ever more perilous to defend the integrity of the Faith before what Your Holiness calls a ‘dictatorship of relativism’…”

A year later Your Holiness is again under attack by these same forces, this time on account of your generous pastoral decision to annul the prior decree of excommunication of the four bishops of the Society of Saint Pius X. Although revocation of the decree is strictly a matter of internal Church governance, these secular monitors of the Church have spent the last two weeks attempting to vilify Your Holiness and even undo your decision. Their strategy has been to capitalize on remarks by one of the four bishops concerning the nature and extent of the Holocaust, remarks which have nothing to do with the Catholic faith or the Society’s mission and were promptly and unequivocally repudiated by the Society’s Superior General.

We now behold the worldwide spectacle of television and radio networks, major magazines and newspapers, pressure groups of all kinds, and even national legislative bodies (including members of the United States Congress!) demanding that Your Holiness personally repudiate the private opinions of a lone bishop, as if those opinions were in some way attributable to the Roman Pontiff. Abandoning any pretense of loyalty to the Vicar of Christ, some purportedly Catholic commentators, joined by a few of your own subordinates in the hierarchy, including certain cardinals within the Vatican itself, are openly condemning your just and charitable gesture of reconciliation to heal an internal wound in the Mystical Body of Christ. Two German “theologians” have even dared to call upon Your Holiness to resign the papacy!

This astonishing chorus of denunciation bears no rational proportion to a single bishop’s personal remarks (not touching at all on Catholic faith or teaching), which have already been dealt with decisively by the Society and by the Vatican. Something else is at work here, and it is clear what that is: the enormously overblown exploitation of an illegitimate argumentum ad hominem by polemical extortionists who are intent on moral blackmail, and who demand as “ransom” that the Pope subject himself to yet another ideological “review” of his pastoral governance and decisions in order to verify the Church’s conformity to their own interests and objectives.

We oppose this extortionate interference in the Church’s internal affairs, and we condemn the disloyalty of those Catholics who, in seizing upon this scandal and using it against Your Holiness, reveal that their attachment to the Vicar of Christ is contingent on the Pope’s willingness to adhere to their peculiar “progressive vision” of the Faith. It appears that the forces now arrayed against Your Holiness within and without the Church are all agreed on a rejection of what you have taught in calling for a “hermeneutic of continuity”: that Vatican II was not “a rupture” or “an end of Tradition, a new start from zero” (Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, Address to the Bishops of Chile, 13 July 1988) but only one of the valid ecumenical Councils of the Church, to be understood and interpreted in light of the twenty Councils that came before it.

As we did a year ago, Your Holiness, we stand by you now in your trial by the City of Man.  More clearly than ever we see the prescience of your request to the faithful at the beginning of your pontificate: “Pray for me, that I may not flee for fear of the wolves.”  We remember the words Your Holiness uttered just before that startling exclamation, when you spoke of Our Lord’s command to Peter to “feed my sheep”:

Feeding means loving, and loving also means being ready to suffer. Loving means giving the sheep what is truly good, the nourishment of God’s truth, of God’s word, the nourishment of his presence, which he gives us in the Blessed Sacrament. My dear friends – at this moment I can only say: Pray for me, that I may learn to love the Lord more and more. Pray for me, that I may learn to love his flock more and more – in other words, you, the holy Church, each one of you and all of you together.

We also remember your message to the Church at the Angelus of March 26, 2006, in which you reminded the Cardinals you had elevated only days before of their duty to be faithful to the Church’s mission even unto death:  “Fidelity to this mission to the point of sacrificing their life is a distinctive feature of Cardinals, as their oath attests, and is, as it were, symbolized by scarlet, which is the colour of blood.” But some of those in whom you placed your trust have abandoned you in your effort to feed all the sheep in your vast flock, including those of the Society of Saint Pius X.

As you contend with wolves both outside and inside the household of the Faith, we continue to pray for you, Holy Father, remaining always your loyal subjects in Christ the King. And we are ready to shed, so help us God, our own blood for your defense and for the holy name of Him whose vicar you are.

Humbly submitted this 3rd day of February in the Year of Our Lord 2009,
