In fact, about three years ago I walked out of a Sunday Mass because he was the celebrant and gave a most unsuitable sermon.
However, I do remember quite vividly the 1988 'excommunication' of the four SSPX bishops and Bishop Williamson's television interview afterwards, with startling clarity.
I cannot find it on Youtube but here is the critical sentence and I am pretty confident that it is word for word accurate.
Remember that he gave this interview after the news that he and the other three had been excised from the Holy Roman Church.....this is what he said:-
"People will remember the true Church when the fire and brimstone falls from the skies; they will remember the one true Faith when the tanks begin to roll across the borders....."
That soundbite has relevance today when we regard the situation in the Ukraine.
Although we have been sheltered from world news for almost a week in holy Lourdes, it would appear as if it is only a question of time before the tanks begin to move over the borders and fire and brimstone fall from the skies.
The question is....will people remember the one true Church?
And will the Holy Father consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
I suspect that Bishop Williamson was only half right in his predictions.
Here is a clip of the consecrations in 1988...and on Monday I hope to post on the effect the consecrations had on the traditional Catholic world and how we are now seeing a reappearance of that effect.
I have not had time to view the complete clip, it is possible that the interview is included,
