It has been reported that not all members of your community are in full communion with Rome. This saddened me and I will be grateful if you will comment.
All the members of our community are indeed in full communion with the Holy See and are subject to the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei.
At the time of our reconciliation, 18 June 2008, and for some time afterwards, we lost several members who would not take the step of reconciliation with us, but these, our separated brethren, could not now be numbered amongst the members of this community of The Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer.
In this we are reminded of the words of Our Lord: Do not think that I came to send peace upon earth: I came not to send peace, but the sword. For I came to set a man at variance against his father etc. (Mt. 10:35)
It would be a great grace to have had the reconciliation of our entire community as it was at that time. That seldom happens.
Reconciliation is painful for those who make it and for those who, for whatever reason, will not make it.
In conclusion, if it were not for the obligation of being submitted to Peter, humanly speaking, nobody would make a reconciliation since the price is very, very high. But, by God's grace it has been made now; and by that reconciliation, the lines were clearly drawn; the sword of division cut in such a way that it left our community thoroughly united, one, submitted to Peter, in Full Communion with Rome and the Church.
By God's Grace and the Perseverance won for us by Our Lady, we peacefully maintain this inner and ecclesial unity.
The cost was high; the smarting is over with; we have been given new life by Our Lord and we rejoice in it. 'Behold how good and how pleasant where brethren dwell in unity' (Ps. 132).
