that we had been nominated to receive
half of the residue of the estate of
the late Mrs. Margaret Patricia Kingon-Rouse, R.I.P.
(Click on documents to read them)
There were legal complications involved with the property which formed the estate.
The last time we had information about the Will was last August.
the District Superior,
Rev. Paul Morgan wrote:
Therefore I telephoned the new London Executor and asked about the present status of the Will.
I was told that the Will
did not legally bind the SSPX
to honour Mrs. Kingon-Rouse's request
and that it was decided that
although I was named in the Will
the SSPX had decided that Papa Stronsay
would not receive the half share of the remainder of the estate
as had been requested by the deceased.
Here is the entire clause of the Will:
I thought that we, Catholics and clergy,
held last requests as sacred prescriptions.
All that is legal is not moral.
If last requests are not honoured by
by whom will they be honoured?
As for the bequest's request
graciously made for us by our friend
Mrs. Kingon-Rouse, R.I.P. -
we are in no position to renounce it
but we accept that it has been taken from us:
we resign ourselves to this injustice.
In all things may God's Will be done
and may it teach us the lessons necessary for salvation:
For the desire of money is the root of all evils;
which some coveting have erred from the faith,
and have entangled themselves in many sorrows.
[1 Timothy 6:10]
