Feast of the Miraculous Medal

The Feast of the Miraculous Medal – November 27

Devotion to and wearing of the Miraculous Medal is second to the Rosary in popularity among Traditional Catholic devotions. The Miraculous Medal is a physical manifestation of the gift of grace that perpetually exudes from Our Lady and it, too, is a Sacramental, a most miraculous one. It was originally called the Medal of the Immaculate Conception, but because so many miracles were reported by those wearing it that it became known as the Miraculous Medal. Often the Medal is presented to Catholics who are making their first holy Communion, receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation and given at Baptisms. The[…]

Quanta Cura Condemning Current Errors

Quanta Cura: Condemning Current Errors (Including Religious Liberty) by Pope Pius IX – 1864

Quanta Cura condemns what Pope Pius IX identified as the fundamental errors plaguing the modern age, particularly the shifting allegiance to secular rather than ecclesial authority. Written to all bishops so they would see “…all the errors and pernicious doctrines which Pius IX has reprobated and condemned.” It denounces the separation of church and state, repudiates freedom of religious worship, and decries freedom of expression and the press as false and pernicious ideas. Pius IX warns that the spread of erroneous doctrines not only injures the faith of individual believers, but also leads to social disorder. The encyclical declares 1865 a year[…]

Our Lady to St. Dominic (1214): “Dominic, do you know which weapon the Blessed Trinity wants to use to reform the world? “‘Oh, my Lady,’ answered St. Dominic, ‘you know far better than I do…’ Then Our Lady replied: “I want you to know that, in this kind of warfare, the battering ram has always been the Angelic Psalter which is the foundation stone of the New Testament. Therefore if you want to reach these hardened souls and win them over to God, preach My Psalter.” — Our Lady to Saint Dominic, from The Secret of the Rosary by Saint Louis de Montfort. Our[…]

The End Times

The Last Times

“The Last Times” is a serious but touching letter from a pastor of souls to his flock, written by Father Jacques Emily, SSPX. His purpose for writing this letter is simply the fatherly concern he has for them during these times of so great danger to their eternal salvation. Drawing on three of Our Lady’s authentic messages (La Salette, Fatima & Quito), Fr. Emily states: “My priestly heart wants to echo once more for your souls the words of Our Heavenly Mother….” As these messages were given us by Our Lady specifically to guide us through the present times, Fr. Emily[…]

The Syllabus of Errors (Latin: Syllabus Errorum) is a document issued by the Holy See under Pope Pius IX on December 8, 1864, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, on the same day as the Pope’s encyclical Quanta Cura.
