Christ the King

Christus vincit, Christus regnat, Christus imperat!

The Feast of Christ the King – Domini Nostri Jesu Christi Regis – was established by Pope Pius XI in 1925 in the encyclical Quas Primas, as an antidote to secularism, a way of life which leaves God out of man’s thinking and living and organizes his life as if God did not exist. The feast is intended to proclaim in a striking and effective manner Christ’s royalty over individuals, families, society, governments, and nations. “If to Christ our Lord is given all power in heaven and on earth; if all men, purchased by his precious blood, are by a[…]

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[…]

Bell, Book, and Candle with Ordo Excommunicandi et Absolvendi

“Bell, Book, and Candle” with Ordo Excommunicandi et Absolvendi

Since the time of the apostles, the term ‘anathema’ has come to mean a form of extreme religious sanction, known as excommunication. The phrase “bell, book, and candle” refers to a Latin Christian method of excommunication by anathema, imposed on a person who had committed an exceptionally grievous sin. Evidently introduced by Pope Zachary around the middle of the 8th century, the rite is used by the Roman Catholic Church. Anathema is not final damnation. God alone is the judge of the living and the dead, and up until the moment of death repentance is always possible. The purpose of[…]

Rome has spoken

Rome Has Spoken

In the troubled times in which we live there is much-muddled thinking and it is to guide Catholics along the way of truth and justice that Rome speaks from time to time by way of encyclical letters to the clergy and laity. These letters of the Popes lay down in clear and precise terms the ruling of the Church in matters of opinion as well as action, on questions of public importance, not only on moral issues but also on social and economic questions, for the Church has at heart not only the spiritual welfare of Her children but their[…]

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[…]

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[…]

Pastoral Letter of the Two American Bishops

Pastoral Letter of the Two American Bishops

Sincere greetings to all Roman Catholics wherever they may be and united with the remnant Bishops. Our Lord, Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Son of God, promised to be with the Church Militant on earth until the end of time. He has never ceased to fulfill this promise to be with her as with His beloved Spouse. He has never abandoned the Church even in what seem like the darkest hours. Jesus Christ is the invisible Head of the Roman Catholic Church. It is He who never ceases to be present to guide the Church when teaching, to bless her when[…]

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[…]

Sapientiae Christianae: The Chief Duties of Christians as Citizens

Sapientiae Christianae: The Chief Duties of Christians as Citizens

In the present crisis of faith, which has broken out within the Catholic Church, on account of the perfidy of those to whom the preaching of the Gospel has been entrusted,  Catholics, who seek true spiritual guidance, can look to the exhortation of Pope Leo XIII, in his Encyclical Letter, Sapientiae Christianae, of January 10, 1890. In Sapientiae Christianae, Pope Leo XIII defines the duties of Christians in civil society and emphasizes that Christian need to obey God, even if that brings them into conflict with civil authority. If civil law clearly contradicts divine law, “then, truly, to resist becomes a[…]

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[…]

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[…]

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[…]
