The Immaculate Conception

The Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary – Feast Day December 8

“The Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary”, text  from “The St. Andrew Daily Missal” (1937) Having decided from all eternity to make Mary Mother of the Incarnate Word (Epistle), God willed that she should crush the head of the serpent from the moment of her conception.

St Jude Thaddaeus, Judas Thaddaeus

The Epistle of St. Jude: Warning Against False Teachers

ST. JUDE is known mainly as the author of the New Testament Epistle of Jude. This letter was probably written before the fall of Jerusalem, between the years of 62 and 67 A.D. In his letter Jude denounces the heresies of that early time and warns the Christians against the seduction of false teaching. Jude urges his readers to defend the deposit of Christ’s doctrine that had been closed by the time he wrote his epistle, and to remember the words of the apostles spoken somewhat before. He speaks of the judgment to come upon the heretics who are living[…]

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.

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[…]

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[…]

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[…]

Why Mass is Celebrated in Latin

Why Catholic Mass is Celebrated in Latin

The celebration of Mass and the administration of the sacraments in the Latin tongue form for some Protestants a subject of surprise, for others of complaint; as if there were something unnatural or wrong in the practice. Among Catholics it never excites either surprise or complaint; they never think themselves in the slightest degree aggrieved by it. If strangers to the Catholic religion think otherwise, their complaints proceed from ignorance. When a Protestant goes to church he generally seems to consider the principal acts of religion to consist in reading, praying, or preaching; nay, he seems to attach most importance[…]

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[…]

Syllabus Errorum By Pope Pius IX

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.
