Quo Primum on Celebration of Masses

QUO PRIMUM – Apostolic Constitution of His Holiness Pope Saint Pius V on the Celebration of Masses

“Quo Primum is no ‘merely ecclesiastical law’ (can. 11) that can be revoked, but has been enacted into law and declared Ex Cathedra to be irreformable, and is therefore a solemnly defined moral doctrine which is also of itself infallible and irreformable (DB 1819). Quo Primum has been infallibly declared to be irreformable because the rite of Mass codified (canonized) in the Tridentine Missal is the ‘received and approved rite’ (the rite of Sacred Tradition) [Iniunctum nobis] of the Roman Church that has been ‘handed down by the Holy Roman Church’ (a sacrosancta Romana Ecclesia … tradita) [Quo Primum].

Dies Irae

Dies Irae (The Day of Wrath)

The Last Judgment, Final Judgment, Day of Judgment, Judgment Day, or The Day of the Lord in Christian theology, is the final and eternal judgment by God of all nations. It will take place after the resurrection of the dead and the Second Coming of Christ (Revelation 20:12–15). The doctrine, iconographic depiction and musical compositions of the “Last Judgment” are drawn from many passages from the apocalyptic sections of the Bible, but most notably from Jesus’ teaching of the strait gate in the Gospel of Matthew and also found in the Gospel of Luke. Dies Irae (The Day of Wrath)[…]

Christian Marriage

Arcanum: Encyclical of Pope Leo XIII on Christian Marriage – 1880

To the Patriarchs, Primates, Archbishops, and Bishops of the Catholic World in Grace and Communion with the Apostolic See. The hidden design of the divine wisdom, which Jesus Christ the Saviour of men came to carry out on earth, had this end in view, that, by Himself and in Himself, He should divinely renew the world, which was sinking, as it were, with length of years into decline. The Apostle Paul summed this up in words of dignity and majesty when he wrote to the Ephesians, thus: “That He might make known unto us the mystery of His will… to[…]

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[…]

Sermon On the Advantages of Tribulations by St. Alphonsus Liguori

On the Advantages of Tribulations (Sermon by St. Alphonsus Liguori for the Second Sunday of Advent)

” Now when John had heard in prison the works of Christ” Matthew 11:2 In tribulations God enriches his beloved souls with the greatest graces. Behold, St. John in his chains comes to the knowledge of the works of Jesus Christ: ” When John had heard in prison the works of Christ.” Great indeed are the advantages of tribulations. The Lord sends them to us, not because he wishes our misfortune, but because he desires our welfare. Hence, when they come upon us we must embrace them with thanksgiving, and must not only resign ourselves to the divine will, but[…]
