Reign of Christ the King

The Reign of Christ the King

“The Reign of Christ he King” By Michael Davies (1936-2004), REMNANT COLUMNIST, London. “Dominus Rex noster, ipse salvabit nos! The Lord is our King, it is He who will save us.”(Antiphon of Vespers of Christ the King). On 11 December 1925, Pope Pius XI promulgated his encyclical letter Quas primas, on the Kingship of Christ. The encyclical dealt with what the Pope described correctly as “the chief cause of the difficulties under which mankind was laboring.” He explained that the manifold evils in the world are due to the fact that the majority of men have thrust Jesus Christ and[…]

The Evil Scourge of War

The Evil Scourge of War by Franz Hunolt, 1889

And so it is, my dear brethren; the most terrible of all public calamities is war. Pestilence and contagious diseases are a severe punishment, and so is famine and hunger; but if war once breaks out in a country, you have all those other plagues with it; for, as experience teaches, they follow in its train, as matters of necessity. All trials and contradictions, no matter what their name may be, are, indeed, punishments, but they are salutary punishments, which serve to bring men to a sense of the wickedness of their ways, and to lead them to God; but,[…]

Should a Catholic Celebrate Martin Luther? The Truth about Luthernism

The Truth about Luthernism

Anti-pope Francis said that Catholics can learn a great deal from Lutherans, in an interview published on Vatican Radio website, as he prepared for a trip to Sweden to join in commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.   Why would a Catholic celebrate Martin Luther when his entire revolt was based on hatred of the Catholic Faith?  Let us see what exactly we can learn from the Lutherans, and from those who condemned Martin Luther’s teachings. Luther Attacks the Papacy A central focus of Luther’s 1517 revolt was a full scale attack on the papacy established by Christ. Luther did[…]

The Good Samaritan. On the Abuse of Divine Mercy Sermon by St. Alphonsus Liguori

On the Abuse of Divine Mercy, Sermon by St. Alphonsus Liguori

In this day’s gospel we read, that a certain man fell into the hands of robbers, who, after having taken his money, wounded him, and left him half dead. A Samaritan who passed by, saw him, and taking pity on him, bound up his wounds, brought him to an inn, and left him to the care of the host, saying: “Take care of him.” These words I this day address to those, if there be any such among you, who, though their souls are wounded by sin, instead of attending to the care of them, continually aggravate the wounds by[…]

Jesus Christ the King

The Kingship of Jesus Christ and On the Separation of Church and State

“And the seventh angel sounded the trumpet: and there were great voices in heaven, saying: The kingdom of this world is become our Lord’s and his Christ’s, and he shall reign for ever and ever. Amen.” [Revelation 11:15] Pope Pius XI on The Kingship of Jesus Christ “Do we not read throughout the Scriptures that Christ is the King? He it is that shall come out of Jacob to rule, who has been set by the Father as king over Sion, his holy mount, and shall have the Gentiles for his inheritance, and the utmost parts of the earth for[…]

Warnings from Our Lady

Warnings from Our Lady

Our Lady, Mother of God, our Mother and Mother of the Church in recent centuries, has given us warnings on the tremendous crisis that the Church would suffer from the mid-Twentieth Century and beyond. She uses words that are precise and unambiguous, though tragic and terrible in its contents. In her appearance at La Salette, Our Lady was displeased with the conduct of the Ministers of God for their “evil life” for their “love of money, honors and pleasures”, but most especially for their “irreverence and impiety in celebrating the Holy Mysteries”. She already knows the reality of the betrayal[…]

Church on Religious Unity and Diversity

The Last Word of the Church on Religious Unity and Diversity

When Christ wished to institute something great and Indispensable in His Church, He promised it first, and conferred it afterwards. Such was the Institution of the Primacy of Peter and of His Church. But He not only established a Church. That is not too difficult a task. Men have also established Churches. They may be counted by the hundred. Many are gone; many more exist, and others will follow. They are all founded on the sand of human frailty: hence not durable. God only can make His Church everlasting, because He Is with her “unto the consummation of the world,”[…]

His Greatest Punishment Upon Catholics: wolf priest

His Greatest Punishment Upon Catholics

“If you see a bad priest at the head of a parish, you should be afflicted and fear that perhaps our sins deserved such a horrible chastisement, for Sacred Scripture teaches us that the greatest and most terrible scourge that God sends to a people is to give it bad priests. Until the wrath of the Lord reaches its apex, He permits that nations arm themselves one against the other; that the fields become sterile; that hunger, desolation and death exert their dominion over the earth. However, when His just indignation reaches its climax, He sends the last and most[…]

The Great Apostasy

The Great Apostasy – Sermons by Fathers of the Society of Jesus (1870)

“Veruntamen Filius hominis veniens , puias , inueniet fidem in terra?– But yet the Son of Man when He cometh, shall He find, think you, faith on earth ? “ (Words taken from the 8th verse of the 18th chapter of St. Luke’s Gospel.) THESE words of sad foreboding were uttered by our Blessed Lord when he had been exhorting His disciples never to faint or grow weary in prayer. He told them how the unjust judge had avenged the poor widow’s wrong, simply because, in her importunity, she gave him no peace till he did so. He feared not[…]

How the Projects and Devices of the Heretics Fell to Pieces

HELL, enraged against the Mystical Body of Christ, has at different times mustered its forces to make a fatal assault on the Catholic Church. But Christ, her Head and Divine Founder, has marvelously come to the aid of the Church in each great tribulation. He has forestalled the coming attack, and at several critical periods, He has been pleased, through His august Mother, the Queen of the universe, to crush the head of the infernal serpent. Thus, in one of the saddest ages of the history of the Church, the Blessed Trinity, through the intervention of Our Lady, destroyed heresy[…]

Veneration and Invocation of Saints

The Veneration and Invocation of Saints

The Creed of the Council of Trent, which the Catholic Church places before the faithful as the Rule of Faith, we read: “I firmly believe that the saints reigning with Christ are to be venerated and invoked.“ The Church therefore teaches, first, that it is right and pleasing to God to venerate the saints and to invoke their intercession; and second, that it is useful and profitable to eternal salvation for us to do so. The veneration of the saints is useful and profitable to us. Men conspicuous in life for knowledge, bravery, or other noble qualities and unusual merits[…]

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 and 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[…]
