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[…]

Program of Christ Against The Plans of Satan

The Program of Christ Against the Plans of Satan (By Father Denis Fahey, C.S. Sp.)

The following article comes from the writings of Father Denis Fahey, C.S. Sp., a brilliant Irish professor of Theology. Much of the material in this article is actually a compilation of portions of the encyclical letters of several Popes. This outline is but a sample of Father Fahey’s great works on the reign of Jesus Christ over all levels of society while Satan’s aim is to continue to mock crowning of Christ the King. And it is we who allow it by our apathy, our sins, our lack of sacrifice and prayer. The Role of the Catholic Church Our Lord’s[…]

Diabolical Disorientation – An Explanation of the Current Crisis

By FR. NICHOLAS GRUNER, S.T.L., S.T.D. [Canada]Taken from the Summer, 2006 Issue, THE FATIMA CRUSADER NOTE: The term “Diabolical Disorientation” comes up in conversation more and more frequently. What is it? What does it mean? What does it have to do with me? Father Gruner answers your questions about this epidemic that has been slowly infecting large segments of the Catholic Church collectively as well as many individual souls of the Faithful. WHEN a person is disoriented, he is in a state of confusion and loses his bearings. He does not understand things clearly. It’s similar to being away and[…]

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[…]

A Shepherd or a Hireling?

A Shepherd or a Hireling?

Find out if you are under a shepherd or a hireling. Here is a short excerpt from a homily by St. Gregory the Great from the Sunday Sermons of the Great Fathers, Volume 2: “Whether a man is indeed a shepherd, or but a hireling, can only be known when a time of trial comes. For in times of peace, just as the true shepherd is wont to stay by his flocks, so likewise does the hireling. But should a wolf appear each will reveal with what mind he had been taking care of the flock. For a wolf descends[…]

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[…]

The Cross of Lorraine

The Cross of Lorraine (Croix de Lorraine) as a Symbol of Resistance

The history of the cross of Lorraine is summarized by Michel Pastoureau in his book “Les emblèmes de la France”. The patriarchal, double cross-pieced cross was one of the pre-heraldical emblems of the Kingdom of Hungary. Used on Hungarian coins at the end of the 12th century, it was later included in the Royal arms. At the same time in Anjou (west of France), a reliquary of the True Cross was an object of specific devotion. This reliquary had the shape of the double cross-pieced cross. It was most probably of Byzantine origin and was kept in the castle of[…]

Saint Louis de Montfort on Blessed Virgin Mary’s Role in the Latter Times

Saint Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort (31 January 1673 – 28 April 1716) was a French Roman Catholic priest and Confessor. He was known in his time as a preacher and was made a missionary apostolic by Pope Clement XI. In his Treatise on True Devotion to Mary, Saint Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort included a chapter on Mary’s role in the Latter Times which stressed the necessity of appealing to Her intercession in order to combat the forces of Satan. He wrote the work in 1712, four years before his death at 43. This book remained hidden away until 1842 when[…]

His Holiness Pope Pius X: Restore the Authority of Religion and Christian Moral DisciplineII in 1951

Quamvis Inquieti: To Restore the Authority of Religion and Christian Moral Discipline

Allocution of His Holiness Pope Pius XII to to the Fathers of the Society of Jesus, Delegates in General Congregation XXIX, Sep. 17, 1946 Now there is nothing that calls us more urgently and pressingly than to restore the authority of religion and Christian moral discipline with due honor and vigor. Alas, into what times we have fallen because of the negligence of those immortal goods given to us by God! Wherever one looks one sees those who are totally ignorant of the Catholic faith, even the rudiments of religion itself. We see those who see nothing impious in crimes and license,[…]

Prayers for the Defense of Christian People against Heathen

Prayers for the Defense of the Church and Christian People against Heathen

Some of the richest treasures of the traditional Roman Liturgy are the Votive Masses near the back of the Missal. I was recently reminded of this when assisting at Holy Mass. That day, the celebrant availed himself of his option on a fourth-class feria to offer the Missa votiva pro Ecclesiae defensione (votive Mass for the defense of the Church). The St. Andrew’s Missal I use calls it by the much more “offensive” title, “Mass Against the Heathen.” The propers that go with this Mass are a reminder that the Most Holy Trinity is, even after the Incarnation, the strong[…]

Novus Ordo in Quotes by Various Catholic Authorities

Novus Ordo in Quotes by Various Catholic Authorities

The liturgical heritage of the Roman Rite may well be the most precious treasure of our entire Western civilization, something to be cherished and preserved for future generations. The Liturgy Constitution of the Second Vatican Council stated that: “In faithful obedience to tradition, the sacred Council declares that Holy Mother Church holds all lawfully recognise rites to be of equal right and dignity, that she wishes to preserve them in future and foster them in every way.” If that were true, …indeed. List of quotes by various Catholic authorities during the Second Vatican Council “We must strip from our Catholic[…]
