Alumnus says anti-Semitism ruled SSPX seminary
Written by Rick Hellman, Editor

About a year ago, Pope Benedict XVI found himself in hot water when Richard N. Williamson — one of the four schismatic bishops whose ban of excommunication he had just lifted — made worldwide headlines when a Swiss TV program aired a recent interview in which Williamson denied the Holocaust. At most, he said, the Nazis killed 300,000 Jews; none by gas.

The Pope then took the unusual step of publicizing a letter he wrote to bishops worldwide, explaining why he had tried to welcome the bishops of the Society of Saint Pius X, or SSPX, back “to full communion with the Pope — to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.”

The Pope, in essence, pleaded ecclesiastical ignorance of Williamson’s anti-Semitism.

“I have been told that consulting the information available on the internet would have made it possible to perceive the problem early on,” Benedict wrote. “I have learned the lesson that in the future in the Holy See will have to pay greater attention to that source of news.”
