Coincidence?

.
Is it really just a coincidence that just as Peter is locked into trying to exert his authority over the Austrian Bishops, the SSPX announces that it is going to ordain 30 new priests?

Is there a sense in which wishing a plague on both their houses might be licit?

The SSPX has been ordaining priests (something that the Austrian conference of bishops finds itself doing less and less) for umpteen years! Why all the hoo-har now?

The term "in communion with Rome" is now a meaningless slogan. If being in communion with Rome means you can get away with what the Austrian bishops have done, then quite frankly the church is in a state of emergency (whether the likes of Fr. Z refuse to acknowledge it or not).

Why not? I do it all the time.
