The Conciliar Bishop Huonder celebrates the Pontifical High Mass for Pentecost at the SSPX seminary
Normally, when a Conciliar priest or bishop leaves the Conciliar Church to join Tradition, this is indeed something to praise and celebrate. 

But when a Conciliar bishop, known to be a personal friend of a great modernist like Pope Francis, "retires" to live amongst traditionalists, as Bishop Huonder did in 2019 when he retired to live with the SSPX in Switzerland, this leaves one questioning if such an action is as innocent at it seems? 

Archbishop Lefebvre repeatedly warned that the goal of modernist Rome was to re-absorb the traditional groups. They have done this many times already, with Fraternity of St. Peter, Institute of Christ the King, etc.:
Quote:Upon reflection, it appears clear that the goal of these dialogues is to reabsorb us within the Conciliar Church, the only Church to which you make allusion during these meetings.” (Letter of Archbishop Lefebvre to Cardinal Ratzinger, May 24, 1988)

It is of paramount importance to note that this Conciliar Bishop Huonder has yet to formally renounce his Conciliar beliefs, as Archbishop Viganò has done many times, for example (see here and  here). Bishop Huonder did not come to the SSPX as a traditionalist, he came as a Conciliarist. When Bishop Lazo came to the SSPX in the 1990's, he fully converted to Tradition. (See #27 here). When Bishop Huonder arrived at the SSPX, it was with Pope Francis' express permission and without an abandonment of the erorrs of the Second Vatican Council. The phrases, Trojan Horse and Wolf in Sheep's Clothing, come to mind. 

Perhaps it is not lost on some that Bishop Huonder's silence on Conciliar error is eerily similar to two other bishops of Tradition! 

Bishop Fellay has yet to retract/renounce the Doctrinal Declaration of 2012 which he signed on behalf of the SSPX, which calls the New Mass legitimately promulgated, which accepts the New Code of Canon Law, enshrining Vatican II, etc. 

And of the False Resistance, Bishop Williamson has yet to retract his promotion of the New Mass as grace-giving, among several other errors and issues. 

It seems 'pretending it never happened' is a successful ploy to lull followers to sleep. How different from Our Lord's direction: "But let your speech be yea, yea: no, no: and that which is over and above these, is of evil." [Matthew 5:37]

It would appear that Bishop Huonder is taking on a more public presence in the SSPX. He has already been giving catechism and hearing confessions. This past Sunday (Pentecost Sunday) the Bishop said a high pontifical Mass livestreamed at the SSPX seminary in Zaitzkofen, Germany. A slow, persistent drip of the presence of a Conciliar bishop in their midst will surely continue to lull the SSPX faithful (and more importantly, the SSPX seminarians!) into accepting into their very midst this working alongside those who accept error. 

"So let us be confident, let us not be unprepared, let us not be outflanked, let us be wise, vigilant, fighting against those who are trying to tear the faith out of our souls and morality out of our hearts, so that we may remain Catholics, remain united to the Blessed Virgin Mary, remain united to the Roman Catholic Church, remain faithful children of the Church."- Abp. Lefebvre
