Documents about the Case Williamson

1.    Bishop Williamson on the Swedish Television:
I think there were no gas chambers (21.01.2009)

Interviewer: Bishop Williamson, are these your words? There was not one Jew killed by the gas chambers. It  was all lies, lies, lies. Are these your words?
Williamson: There you are quoting me from Canada, I believe, yes. Many years ago. Hmmm... I believe that the historical evidence, the historical evidence is very strongly against 6 million Jews having been deliberately gased in gas chambers as a deliberate policy of Adolf Hitler.
Interviewer: But you say not one Jew was killed.
Williamson: In gas chambers.
Interviewer: So there was no gas chambers?
Williamson: I believe there were no gas chambers. Yes, I think, as far as I have studied the evidence, I am not going by emotion, I am going by... as far as I have understood the evidence. I think for instance people (...) who are against what is very widely believed today about the Holocaust, (...) the revisionists, as they are called, (...) I think the most serious conclude that between 200 and 300,000 Jews perished in Nazi concentration camps, but not one of them by gasing in a gas chamber. (...) You may have heard of the Leuchter report? Fred Leuchter was an expert in gas chambers. He designed three gas chambers for three of the fifty United States of America for the execution of criminals. So he knew whats involved. And he studied the supposed gas chambers in Germany at some point of the 1980s, at least what remained of the supposed gas chambers. The crematoria of Birkenau-Auschwitz for instance. And his conclusion, ... his expert conclusion was that it is impossible that these could ever have served for the gasing of large amounts of people, because cyanide gas is very dangerous. If you ... lets suppose you gas 300 people that youve crowded in one chamber and you gas them no matter if they are wearing clothes or ... for instance they are wearing clothes. Its very dangerous to pull out the corpses. For if one bit of gas that is trapped in the clothes escaped, this will kill the person. It is extremely dangerous. (...) Once you have gased the people, (...) you have to evacuate the gas to be able to go into the chamber again in order to be able to use it. To evacuate the gas you need a high chimney. If its a low chimney, the gas goes onto the pavement and kills anybody walking by. You need a high chimney, right? I forgot how high it must be according to his (i. e. Leuchters the editor) opinion. (...) If there was a high chimney, then the shadow ... then most times of the day the shadow would have fallen on the ground. And the allied aerial photographers that flew over the camps would have picked up the shadow of this chimney. But there have never been such shadows. There was no such chimney. According to Fred Leuchters testimony, this is that there cannot have been gas chambers. He looks at the doors and says: The door has to be absolutely airtight, otherwise again the gas escapes and kills the people outside. The doors of the gas chamber that theyre showing to tourists in Auschwitz are absolutely not airtight, absolutely not.
Interviewer: What you are saying now is that the Holocaust has never occurred. Not in the way historicians say it today.
Williamson: I am going by what I judge to be the historical evidence, according to the people who have observed and examined that evidence. I believe that what they conclude ... if they changed their conclusion, then I would be loving to follow their conclusions. Because I think that they judge by the evidence. I think that 200 to 300,000 Jews perished in Nazi concentration camps, but nothing like ... not one of them by a gas chamber. I dont know if you know...
Interviewer: If this is not antisemitism, what is antisemitism?
Williamson: Antisemitism ... if antisemitism is bad ... it is against truth. If something is true, it is not bad. I am not interested in the word antisemitism. The word is very dangerous.
Interviewer: The Bishop calls you an antisemite.
Williamson: The Bishop can call me ... he can call me a dinosaur, he can call me an idiot, he can call me what he likes. It is not a question of name calling. It is a question of historical truth. Historical truth goes by evidence and not by emotion. Germany has paid out billions and billions of Deutschmarks and now of Euros, because the Germans have a guilt complex about their ... THEIR having gased six million Jews. But I dont think six million Jews have been gased. Now I beg you, be careful this is against the law in Germany. If there were a German statesman, then you could have me thrown into jail before I leave Germany. I hope, this is not your intention.

2.  Decree of the Congregation of Bishops concerning the Bishops of the Fraternity of Priests St. Pius X

By letter dated 15.12.2008 addressed to His Eminence Cardinal Dario Castrillon Hoyos, president of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, Monsignor Bernard Fellay asked, also on behalf of the other three bishops consecrated on 30 June 1988, again for a waiver of the excommunication latae sententiae (as a punishment for a delict). This excommunication had been declared formally by a decree of the Prefect of this Congregation of 1 July, 1988.

In this letter, Msgr Fellay said among others: "We are firmly committed to stay Catholics and to embrace with all our forces the service of the Church of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is the Roman Catholic Church. We accept its doctrine as their children. We strongly believe in the primacy of Peter and all its implications and therefore we suffer so strongly from the current situation.

Pope Benedict XVI - paternally sensitive to the spiritual unease that the interested expressed because of the penalty of excommunication, and confident about the commitment which they expressed in their letter to spare no effort to intensify the necessary discussions with the bodies of the Holy See about the outstanding issues, soon so that a complete and satisfactory solution to the original problem can be achieved - has decided to rethink the legal situation of the Bishops Fellay, Tissier de Mallerais, Williamson and de Galarreta, which had arisen by virtue of their episcopal consecration.

This action is to strengthen the mutual, trusting relations and to stabilize the contacts between the Fraternity of St. Pius X. and the Holy See. This gift of peace is supposed to be - at the end of the Christmas season - a sign to promote unity in the love of the universal Church and to overcome the scandal of split.

It is hoped that this step will be as soon as possible followed by the realization of the full unity with the church from the part of the entire Fraternity of St. Pius X., in order to testify the true faithfulness and true recognition of the ecclesial Magisterium and the authority of the Pope by giving a sign of the visible unity.

Because of the power of attorney expressly granted to me by the Holy Father Benedict XVI., I by this decree lift the penalty of excommunication latae sententiae for the bishops Bernard Fellay, Bernard Tissier de Mallerais, Richard Williamson and Alfonso de Galarreta, which had been imposed by this Congregation on 1 July 1988. I declare the decree issued at that time as of today for repeal.

Rome, seat of the Congregation of Bishops, 21 January 2009 Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re, Prefect of the Congregation for Bishops

3. Press statement from the Superior General of the Society of Priests St. Pius X, Bishop Bernard Fellay, regarding Bishop Williamson

We have learned of an interview given by Bishop Richard Williamson, a member of our Society of Saint Pius X, to Swedish television. In this interview, he comments on historical questions, particularly the question of the genocide of Jews by the National Socialists.

It is obvious that a Catholic bishop can only speak with ecclesiastical authority about matters concerning faith and morals. Our Society claims no authority on other matters. Its mission is the propagation and restoration of authentic Catholic doctrine, set forth in the dogmas of the Faith. It is for this that we are known, accepted and esteemed throughout the world.

We are deeply grieved to see how much harm the violation of this mandate can do to our mission. Bishop Williamson's statements do not in any way reflect the position of our Society. This is why I have forbidden him, until further notice, to make any public statements on political or historical issues.

We ask forgiveness of the Sovereign Pontiff and of all people of good will for the dramatic consequences of such an act. While we recognize how inappropriate these declarations were, we can only note with sadness that the incessant accusations against our Society are also obviously intended to discredit it.

This we cannot accept, and we declare that we will continue to preach Catholic doctrine and administer the sacraments of grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

4. Letter of His Excellency Williamson to Cardinal Castrilln Hoyos

Your Eminence

Amidst this tremendous media storm stirred up by imprudent remarks of mine on Swedish television, I beg of you to accept, only as is properly respectful, my sincere regrets for having caused to yourself and to the Holy Father so much unnecessary distress and problems.

For me, all that matters is the Truth Incarnate, and the interests of His one true Church, through which alone we can save our souls and give eternal glory, in our little way, to Almighty God. So I have only one comment, from the prophet Jonas, I, 12:

"Take me up and throw me into the sea; then the sea will quiet down for you; for I know it is because of me that this great tempest has come upon you."

Please also accept, and convey to the Holy Father, my sincere personal thanks for the document signed last Wednesday and made public on Saturday. Most humbly I will offer a Mass for both of you.

Sincerely yours in Christ
+Richard Williamson

5. LETTER OF HIS HOLINESS POPE BENEDICT XVI

TO THE BISHOPS OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH CONCERNING THE REMISSION OF THE EXCOMMUNICATION OF THE FOUR BISHOPS CONSECRATED BY ARCHBISHOP LEFEBVRE

Dear Brothers in the Episcopal Ministry!

The  remission of the excommunication of the four Bishops consecrated in 1988 by Archbishop Lefebvre without a mandate of the Holy See has for many reasons caused, both within and beyond the Catholic Church, a discussion more heated than any we have seen for a long time. Many Bishops felt perplexed by an event which came about unexpectedly and was difficult to view positively in the light of the issues and tasks facing the Church today. Even though many Bishops and members of the faithful were disposed in principle to take a positive view of the Popes concern for reconciliation, the question remained whether such a gesture was fitting in view of the genuinely urgent demands of the life of faith in our time. Some groups, on the other hand, openly accused the Pope of wanting to turn back the clock to before the Council: as a result, an avalanche of protests was unleashed, whose bitterness laid bare wounds deeper than those of the present moment. I therefore feel obliged to offer you, dear Brothers, a word of clarification, which ought to help you understand the concerns which led me and the competent offices of the Holy See to take this step. In this way I hope to contribute to peace in the Church.

An unforeseen mishap for me was the fact that the Williamson case came on top of the remission of the excommunication. The discreet gesture of mercy towards four Bishops ordained validly but not legitimately suddenly appeared as something completely different: as the repudiation of reconciliation between Christians and Jews, and thus as the reversal of what the Council had laid down in this regard to guide the Churchs path. A gesture of reconciliation with an ecclesial group engaged in a process of separation thus turned into its very antithesis: an apparent step backwards with regard to all the steps of reconciliation between Christians and Jews taken since the Council steps which my own work as a theologian had sought from the beginning to take part in and support. That this overlapping of two opposed processes took place and momentarily upset peace between Christians and Jews, as well as peace within the Church, is something which I can only deeply deplore. I have been told that consulting the information available on the internet would have made it possible to perceive the problem early on. I have learned the lesson that in the future in the Holy See we will have to pay greater attention to that source of news. I was saddened by the fact that even Catholics who, after all, might have had a better knowledge of the situation, thought they had to attack me with open hostility. Precisely for this reason I thank all the more our Jewish friends, who quickly helped to clear up the misunderstanding and to restore the atmosphere of friendship and trust which as in the days of  Pope John Paul II has also existed throughout my pontificate and, thank God, continues to exist.

Another mistake, which I deeply regret, is the fact that the extent and limits of the provision of 21 January 2009 were not clearly and adequately explained at the moment of its publication. The excommunication affects individuals, not institutions. An episcopal ordination lacking a pontifical mandate raises the danger of a schism, since it jeopardizes the unity of the College of Bishops with the Pope. Consequently the Church must react by employing her most severe punishment excommunication with the aim of calling those thus punished to repent and to return to unity. Twenty years after the ordinations, this goal has sadly not yet been attained. The remission of the excommunication has the same aim as that of the punishment: namely, to invite the four Bishops once more to return. This gesture was possible once the interested parties had expressed their recognition in principle of the Pope and his authority as Pastor, albeit with some reservations in the area of obedience to his doctrinal authority and to the authority of the Council. Here I return to the distinction between individuals and institutions. The remission of the excommunication was a measure taken in the field of ecclesiastical discipline: the individuals were freed from the burden of conscience constituted by the most serious of ecclesiastical penalties. This disciplinary level needs to be distinguished from the doctrinal level. The fact that the Society of Saint Pius X does not possess a canonical status in the Church is not, in the end, based on disciplinary but on doctrinal reasons. As long as the Society does not have a canonical status in the Church, its ministers do not exercise legitimate ministries in the Church. There needs to be a distinction, then, between the disciplinary level, which deals with individuals as such, and the doctrinal level, at which ministry and institution are involved. In order to make this clear once again: until the doctrinal questions are clarified, the Society has no canonical status in the Church, and its ministers even though they have been freed of the ecclesiastical penalty do not legitimately exercise any ministry in the Church.

In light of this situation, it is my intention henceforth to join the Pontifical Commission "Ecclesia Dei" the body which has been competent since 1988 for those communities and persons who, coming from the Society of Saint Pius X or from similar groups, wish to return to full communion with the Pope to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. This will make it clear that the problems now to be addressed are essentially doctrinal in nature and concern primarily the acceptance of the  Second Vatican Council and the post-conciliar magisterium of the Popes. The collegial bodies with which the Congregation studies questions which arise (especially the ordinary Wednesday meeting of Cardinals and the annual or biennial Plenary Session) ensure the involvement of the Prefects of the different Roman Congregations and representatives from the worlds Bishops in the process of decision-making. The Churchs teaching authority cannot be frozen in the year 1962 this must be quite clear to the Society. But some of those who put themselves forward as great defenders of the Council also need to be reminded that Vatican II embraces the entire doctrinal history of the Church. Anyone who wishes to be obedient to the Council has to accept the faith professed over the centuries, and cannot sever the roots from which the tree draws its life.

I hope, dear Brothers, that this serves to clarify the positive significance and also the limits of the provision of 21 January 2009. But the question still remains: Was this measure needed? Was it really a priority? Arent other things perhaps more important? Of course there are more important and urgent matters. I believe that I set forth clearly the priorities of my pontificate in the addresses which I gave at its beginning. Everything that I said then continues unchanged as my plan of action. The first priority for the Successor of Peter was laid down by the Lord in the Upper Room in the clearest of terms: "You strengthen your brothers" (Lk 22:32). Peter himself formulated this priority anew in his first Letter: "Always be prepared to make a defence to anyone who calls you to account for the hope that is in you" (1 Pet 3:15). In our days, when in vast areas of the world the faith is in danger of dying out like a flame which no longer has fuel, the overriding priority is to make God present in this world and to show men and women the way to God. Not just any god, but the God who spoke on Sinai; to that God whose face we recognize in a love which presses "to the end" (cf. Jn 13:1) in Jesus Christ, crucified and risen. The real problem at this moment of our history is that God is disappearing from the human horizon, and, with the dimming of the light which comes from God, humanity is losing its bearings, with increasingly evident destructive effects.

Leading men and women to God, to the God who speaks in the Bible: this is the supreme and fundamental priority of the Church and of the Successor of Peter at the present time. A logical consequence of this is that we must have at heart the unity of all believers. Their disunity, their disagreement among themselves, calls into question the credibility of their talk of God. Hence the effort to promote a common witness by Christians to their faith ecumenism is part of the supreme priority. Added to this is the need for all those who believe in God to join in seeking peace, to attempt to draw closer to one another, and to journey together, even with their differing images of God, towards the source of Light this is interreligious dialogue. Whoever proclaims that God is Love "to the end" has to bear witness to love: in loving devotion to the suffering, in the rejection of hatred and enmity this is the social dimension of the Christian faith, of which I spoke in the Encyclical Deus Caritas Est.

So if the arduous task of working for faith, hope and love in the world is presently (and, in various ways, always) the Churchs real priority, then part of this is also made up of acts of reconciliation, small and not so small. That the quiet gesture of extending a hand gave rise to a huge uproar, and thus became exactly the opposite of a gesture of reconciliation, is a fact which we must accept. But I ask now: Was it, and is it, truly wrong in this case to meet half-way the brother who "has something against you" (cf. Mt 5:23ff.) and to seek reconciliation? Should not civil society also try to forestall forms of extremism and to incorporate their eventual adherents to the extent possible in the great currents shaping social life, and thus avoid their being segregated, with all its consequences? Can it be completely mistaken to work to break down obstinacy and narrowness, and to make space for what is positive and retrievable for the whole? I myself saw, in the years after 1988, how the return of communities which had been separated from Rome changed their interior attitudes; I saw how returning to the bigger and broader Church enabled them to move beyond one-sided positions and broke down rigidity so that positive energies could emerge for the whole. Can we be totally indifferent about a community which has 491 priests, 215 seminarians, 6 seminaries, 88 schools, 2 university-level institutes, 117 religious brothers, 164 religious sisters and thousands of lay faithful? Should we casually let them drift farther from the Church? I think for example of the 491 priests. We cannot know how mixed their motives may be. All the same, I do not think that they would have chosen the priesthood if, alongside various distorted and unhealthy elements, they did not have a love for Christ and a desire to proclaim him and, with him, the living God. Can we simply exclude them, as representatives of a radical fringe, from our pursuit of reconciliation and unity? What would then become of them?

Certainly, for some time now, and once again on this specific occasion, we have heard from some representatives of that community many unpleasant things arrogance and presumptuousness, an obsession with one-sided positions, etc. Yet to tell the truth, I must add that I have also received a number of touching testimonials of gratitude which clearly showed an openness of heart. But should not the great Church also allow herself to be generous in the knowledge of her great breadth, in the knowledge of the promise made to her? Should not we, as good educators, also be capable of overlooking various faults and making every effort to open up broader vistas? And should we not admit that some unpleasant things have also emerged in Church circles? At times one gets the impression that our society needs to have at least one group to which no tolerance may be shown; which one can easily attack and hate. And should someone dare to approach them in this case the Pope he too loses any right to tolerance; he too can be treated hatefully, without misgiving or restraint.

Dear Brothers, during the days when I first had the idea of writing this letter, by chance, during a visit to the Roman Seminary, I had to interpret and comment on Galatians 5:13-15. I was surprised at the directness with which that passage speaks to us about the present moment: "Do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love be servants of one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: You shall love your neighbour as yourself. But if you bite and devour one another, take heed that you are not consumed by one another." I am always tempted to see these words as another of the rhetorical excesses which we occasionally find in Saint Paul. To some extent that may also be the case. But sad to say, this "biting and devouring" also exists in the Church today, as expression of a poorly understood freedom. Should we be surprised that we too are no better than the Galatians? That at the very least we are threatened by the same temptations? That we must always learn anew the proper use of freedom? And that we must always learn anew the supreme priority, which is love? The day I spoke about this at the Major Seminary, the feast of Our Lady of Trust was being celebrated in Rome. And so it is: Mary teaches us trust. She leads us to her Son, in whom all of us can put our trust. He will be our guide even in turbulent times. And so I would like to offer heartfelt thanks to all the many Bishops who have lately offered me touching tokens of trust and affection, and above all assured me of their prayers. My thanks also go to all the faithful who in these days have given me testimony of their constant fidelity to the Successor of Saint Peter. May the Lord protect all of us and guide our steps along the way of peace. This is the prayer that rises up instinctively from my heart at the beginning of this Lent, a liturgical season particularly suited to interior purification, one which invites all of us to look with renewed hope to the light which awaits us at Easter.

With a special Apostolic Blessing, I remain

Yours in the Lord,

BENEDICTUS PP. XVI
