After the ordinations in the seminaries of the Northern Hemisphere, the Society of St. Pius X has 569 priests. 18 new priests were ordained in the United States, Switzerland and Germany.
For those who think that traditionalism (true traditionalism - see here for a definition) is not here to stay perhaps you should look at this chart. Despite the controversy that obviously surrounds the Society, vocations to the Society of St. Pius X continue. They are now at an all time high of 569 priests.
Perhaps those naysayers who still attack them, have forgotten the words of our Lord: "Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, and the evil tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can an evil tree bring forth good fruit" (Matthew 7:17-18).
Marcel Lefebvre, ora pro nobis!
