Immaculate Heart of Mary

Feast of The Immaculate Heart of The Blessed Virgin Mary (August 22)

In Fatima, Portugal, (1917) Our Lady appeared to three shepherd children. She said: “Pray the rosary every day to bring peace to the world and end the war.“ She also promised to assist souls at the hour of death with the graces necessary for salvation, who on the first Saturday of five consecutive months, would go to Confession and receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the rosary and keep her company for a quarter of an hour while meditating on the mysteries of the rosaries with the intention of making reparation to her Immaculate Heart. “Our Lord wishes that[…]

Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary – Feast Day August 15th

The dogma of the Assumption is the answer of the Church to a materialistic world. It implicitly states that the perfection of our faculties and bodily skills will be fully exercised only in heaven, where they attain fulfillment in contemplating God.

May the Immaculate Mother of God and our co-redeemer, in the new glory of this revelation, focus the mind of the world on the true aim of progress[…]

Cum ex Apostolatus Officio

“Cum ex Apostolatus Officio” – Apostolic Constitution of Pope Paul IV About the Danger of Heretical Authorities

“Cum ex Apostolatus Officio” is the name of a papal bull issued by Pope Paul IV on 15 February 1559 as a codification or explicitation of the ancient Catholic law that only Catholics can be elected Popes, to the exclusion of non-Catholics, including former Catholics who have become public and manifest heretics. This Papal Bull is also focused on the validity of a prelate or Pope in the event they were in heresy or apostasy. Because it deals with faith and morals and was issued ex-cathedra (from the Chair of Peter) and therefore is considered not only infallible, but to[…]

Death of the Virgin, Hugo van der Goes, c 1480

Novena to Our Lady of the Assumption

First Day, August 6 GLORY OF MARY IN DEATH She was well prepared to die LET us meditate how glorious Mary was at the moment of her death, because in life she was so well prepared to die: first, by reason of her ardent longing to see her God and to be again united to her Son; and next, by the unapproachable merit of her consummate perfection. Then, reflecting how different we are from Mary in our own practice of preparation for our death, let us say : 1. Most holy Virgin, who, in order to prepare thyself for a holy[…]

Save the World, Save Traditional Latin Mass

Traditional Liturgical Calendar: Tridentine Latin Mass

Keep close to the Catholic Church at all times, for the Church alone can give you true peace, since she alone possesses Jesus, the true Prince of Peace, in the Blessed Sacrament. ~St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina The Traditional Latin Mass, “The Mass of All Ages” is making a great comeback among Catholics of all ages. Do not depart by one iota from traditional Catholic doctrine: Roman Catholicism is pure and unadulterated – as practiced from the time of Our Lord. In these turbulent times of sodomite and masonic invasion with the intent of destroying Christ’s Church from within, Catholics should[…]
