St. Anthony of Padua Doctor of the Church

Prayer to St Anthony of Padua, “Hammer of Heretics”

No Catholic who takes the salvation of his immortal soul seriously can ignore the intercessory power of Saint Anthony of Padua. Over and above all of the little things we ask Saint Anthony to find after we have lost them, Saint Anthony of Padua, an exemplary preacher of the truths of the Catholic Faith, must be invoked today in our times under one of his most important titles, “The Hammer of Heretics.” We may wonder at the zeal that consumed St. Anthony to proclaim the truth of Christ Jesus among the dangerous heretics, but it is no wonder that his[…]

Monasticism in the Catholic Church

The Mission of Monasticism in the Catholic Church

Since the early years of the Christian era, Christians have been called by Christ Himself to life in the world without being of the world (John 17:13-16). There are those who think that the contemplative life is not suited to our times and particularly to our country. Hear what Pius IX said on that subject: “The want of the American Church is religious orders of prayer. America is a young country; she has passed her infancy and is now in her youth, but before she arrives at maturity one thing is necessary,—the extension of contemplative orders, without which she will[…]

Blessed rosary, rosaries and chaplets, crosses and crucifixes

Blessed Crosses, Crucifixes, Rosaries and Medals

Blessed rosary, rosaries and chaplets, crosses and crucifixes are a powerful channel of Grace, and have many indulgences attached to them. The following text comes from “Raccolta: Collection of Prayers and Good Works for Which the Popes Have Granted Holy Indulgences” –  “Raccolta delle orazioni e pie opere per le quali sono sono concedute dai Sommi Pontefici le SS. Indulgenze”. Ancient may have been the custom of the Sovereign Pontiff to bless and distribute to the faithful sacred articles of gold, silver, or other metal (whence originated the Pontifical blessing and distribution of crosses, crucifixes, rosaries, medals, &c.), yet is[…]

To Catholics Who Have Been Deprived of a Priest

To Catholics Who Have Been Deprived of a Priest

Editor’s Preface: During the French Revolution very many Bishops and priests were martyred for their faith as were many outstanding laymen also martyred. Church property was seized by the Masonic government. The revolutionary governing bodies were particularly determined to destroy every vestige of the Roman Catholic Church because France was hailed by Rome as the Church’s “eldest daughter” and the monarch had dedicated “our person, our state, our crown and our subjects” to the Blessed Virgin. That left the people without their priests and without a place to go to Mass and receive the sacraments. It was during that period[…]

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.

St Francis of Assisi Prophecies, Great Schism and Tribulations in the Church

St. Francis of Assisi had a gift of prophecy about a future Church crisis such as ours. He described a corrupt pontificate where Our Lord had placed a “non-canonically elected destroyer” into the visible seat. This prophecy, with Imprimatur, an official license by the Roman Catholic Church to print an ecclesiastical or religious book, is below: Act bravely, my Brethren; take courage, and trust in the Lord. The time is fast approaching in which there will be great trials and afflictions; perplexities and dissensions, both spiritual and temporal, will abound; the charity of many will grow cold, and the malice[…]

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?

Holy Face of Jesus

Holy Face Devotion – Devotion for Our Times: Acts of Reparation for Insults and Blasphemies

“This Salutary Reparation to the Holy Face of Jesus is a Divine Work, Destined to Save Modern Society.” — Pope Pius IX Devotion to the Holy Face of Christ is of ancient origin, reaching back to the fourth century and before. From the 12th century on, the devotion began to revolve around the Veil of Veronica, held to be the cloth Veronica gave to Our Lord to wipe His face during the carrying of the Cross. Popularity of the devotion grew enormously with St. Therese of the Child Jesus making known her devotion to the Holy Face, with an Archconfraternity[…]

The 'Spirit of Assisi' vs. Saint Francis of Assisi

The ‘Spirit of Assisi’ vs. Saint Francis of Assisi

By John Vennari (1958-2017) Published in Catholic Family News, April 2002 It is becoming increasingly obvious that within the Church since the Council we are now in the age of slogans: empty, meaningless slogans that really do not have much substance and that do not convey the true picture of what is actually being promoted. We are all familiar with the slogans: the promise of a “new springtime,” a “civilization of love,” a “new Pentecost,” and now, a novel orientation named “the spirit of Assisi” (1). In a recent lecture called “The New Pentecost vs. the True Pentecost,” I explained[…]
