Pious Reflections of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

Pious Reflections of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

“Where there is no Mass,” writes one of the Fathers of the English Oratory, “there is also no Christianity.” The reason is plain: Christ’s life was one of sacrifice—not merely of the figurative sacrifice of praise and prayer, but one of outward act, of suffering and of death His religion must be like Himself: it must be the continuation of the divine-human life that He led upon earth, representing and perpetuating, by some sacred rite, the sacrifice that began in the womb of Mary and ended upon the Cross of Calvary That rite is the holy Mass. Do we always[…]

Catholic Church Teaching on Heresy in the Church

Catholic Church Teaching on Heresy in the Church

“Pretend the magisterium has not spoken“, and the “Elevation of hetero-praxis over doctrine” – a new approach of action that conflicts with the perennial magisterium, – are two principal modernist tactics of the Conciliar revolution. Below is a clear guide (and reminder) of the “Catholic Church Teaching on Heresy in the Church”, and the “Catholic Church Teaching on Heresy and the Pope”. To begin with,  let us state that the theological authority of St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) is unsurpassed in the Catholic Church. The teaching of the Angelic Doctor is also the perfect antidote to Modernism. While paying lipservice to him, today’s[…]

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[…]

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[…]

Dutch Catechism, Alpha Courses & The Catechism of Perseverance

Dutch Catechism, Alpha Courses & The Catechism of Perseverance

The university of Nijmegen [Holland Netherlands], was where Dominican priest Fr. Edward Schillebeeckx penned his notorious Dutch Catechism, stripping the Church of any essential teachings and identity to accommodate the world. The revolutionaries like Schillebeeckx who were all the rage around the time of Vatican II set the Church on a course that would eradicate nearly all vestiges of Catholic belief here in Holland and, to lesser yet still significant degrees, many other places in the world as well. Here in the land of the Dutch, the Dutch Catechism, which was more Protestant than Catholic, has resulted in such a[…]

Oath Against Modernism

Oath Against Modernism: Sacrorum Antistitum by Pope Pius X

“Our Apostolic Mandate requires from Us that We watch over the purity of the Faith and the integrity of Catholic discipline. It requires from Us that We protect the faithful from evil and error; especially so when evil and error are presented in dynamic language which, concealing vague notions and ambiguous expressions with emotional and high-sounding words, is likely to set ablaze the hearts of men in pursuit of ideals which, whilst attractive, are nonetheless nefarious.” —Pope St. Pius X, Apostolic Letter Notre Charge Apostolique, 1910. The oath against modernism was issued by Pope Pius X on 1 September 1910 in[…]

St Philomena Picture

Prayers to Saint Philomena. Liturgical feast day in honor of Saint Philomena – August 11th

Beware of false prophets

Beware of False Prophets! Cornelius a Lapide’s Commentary on Matthew 7:15-22

Mat 7:15  Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Beware of false prophets, &c. Christ passes on to a most salutary admonition concerning the taking heed of false teachers, who teach that the way to heaven is not strait, but easy, and who thus send those who follow them not to heaven but to hell. They teach that we need not fast, nor go to confession, nor preserve virginity, nor religious vows; they allow all sorts of liberty to the flesh, and take away all merit from good works. Observe,[…]

The Destruction Of The Christian Tradition

The Destruction Of The Christian Tradition

Concentrating on the post-Vatican II revisions of its teachings, this book tells the story of the destruction of the Roman Catholic tradition, a defining event of the twentieth century. “The Apostle Paul in his Epistle to the Ephesians orders us to expose the unfruitful works of darkness. In The Destruction of the Christian Tradition, Dr. Coomaraswamy does just that clearly, decisively, brilliantly and, I dare say, inspiringly; for against the ugly backdrop of the new religion, one is shocked into a greater realization of the beauty of the true Religion. The good doctor demonstrates in a compelling way that ours[…]

Holy Eucharist

Sacrifice of the Mass and the Real Presence of Jesus in the Consecrated Host

The results of Communion in the hand and the Novus Ordo have caused a major crisis in the Catholic Church. The New York Times reported that when Catholics were asked, in a Times-CBS news poll, what best describes their belief about what happens to the bread and wine at Mass, most chose the answer that the bread and wine are “symbolic reminders of Christ” over the answer that they are “changed into the Body and Blood of Christ”. The official Church teaching, which we must believe in order to be saved, is this: “The Eucharistic presence of Christ begins at[…]

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. The Assumption was the moment of creation’s fulfillment, the first-fruit of God’s plan for mankind — a plan which includes our own appearance, body and soul, before the throne of 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[…]

A Shepherd or a Hireling?

A Shepherd or a Hireling?

The following 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 upon the flock whenever some lawless person or robber[…]
