Website Review: Society of St. Pius V
A review based on: http://www.sspv.net
The Society of St. Pius V is self-described as "an organization of traditional Catholic priests dedicated to the preservation of the Traditional Latin Mass." The site itself is very minimal, and contains only brief bios on the founder and current bishop, and a couple of articles.
Since the site itself has little information on the Society, it does not present the true nature of the organization. In reality, the SSPV not only rejects the New Mass but also maintains that the Chair of Peter is currently vacant. For more information, see Schismatic Traditionalists and Habemus Papem?.
