Pope St Pius X on human dignity

“Notre Charge Apostolique” (Our Apostolic Mandate) Given by Pope Pius X to the French Bishops on August 15, 1910

INTRODUCTION: Le Sillon (“The Furrow”, or “The Path”) was a French political and religious movement founded by Marc Sangnier (1873 – 1950) which existed from 1894 to 1910. It aimed to bring Catholicism into a greater conformity with French Republican and socialist ideals, in order to provide an alternative to Marxism and other anticlerical labour movements. Where does the Sillon’s error come from? Pope St. Pius X sees the root of the Sillonist errors (and modern ecumenical movement) in a false conception of human dignity. “Our Apostolic Mandate” – The Prophetic Words of Pope St. Pius X Our Apostolic Mandate requires[…]

Is the Charismatic Movement Truly Catholic?

Is the Charismatic Movement Truly Catholic?

Regarding its origins: Charismatism takes its origins from Protestant Pentecostalism in the United States and it has spread throughout the Catholic Church by the “Baptism in the Spirit”. Regarding its “Baptism in the Spirit”: This spiritual baptism is an innovation which the Charismatic renewal attempts to justify by claiming that with the sacraments the Catholic Church has not fulfilled all the abundance of the Gospels: “The over flowing and abundance of the New Testament should not be hastily assimilated to subsequent sacramental forms” (Fr Laurentin, Charismatic apologist, in his book Pentecôtisme chez les Catholiques, Beauchesne, 1975). Now, the Catholic Church[…]

May God console you! Letter of Saint Athanasius to His Flock

May God console you! Letter of Saint Athanasius to His Flock

The Catholic Church Ravaged in the Fourth Century Saint Athanasius lived in the fourth century during the time of what used to be considered the greatest crisis of faith ever to befall the Catholic Church, the Arian Heresy. (The Arians denied the Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ). The vast majority of Churchmen fell into this heresy, so much so that Saint Jerome wrote of the period, “The whole world groaned and was amazed to find itself Arian“. Athanasius was the Bishop of Alexandria in Egypt for 46 years. He was banned from his diocese at least five times and[…]

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[…]

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[…]

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[…]

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[…]

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[…]

St. Alphonsus Mary De Ligouri

On The Number Of Sins Beyond Which God Pardons No More

“Non tentabis Dominum Deum tuum.”“Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.”– Matt., 4:7 A sermon by St. Alphonsus Mary De Liguori (1696-1787), Bishop and Doctor of the Church. St. Francis Jerome, when he visited the parents of St. Alphonsus shortly after his birth, made this prophecy: “This child will be blessed with length of days; he shall not see death before his ninetieth year; he will be a bishop and will do great things for Jesus Christ.” This prophecy certainly came true. One of the most accomplished of all the saints is Alphonsus Liguori. He was a lawyer in[…]

St. Athanasius of Mount Athos icon

St Athanasius the Great to the Bishops of Egypt (Chapter I) Translated by Cardinal Newman

The time has come to fight for the truth against heresy. Our enemy does not always attack us in the same manner. Martyrdom does not consist only in refusing to offer incense to idols. There is also a martyrdom of the conscience, which consists in not violating the Faith. Not a year goes by when they do not invent new creeds, which they are the first to condemn by replacing then with others that are no more acceptable. Their entire plan is to destroy Catholic truth while seeming to defend it. They are Pilate sending Jesus Christ to be tortured[…]

PASCENDI DOMINICI GREGIS: Feeding the Lord’s Flock (On Modernism in the Catholic Church)

The final overall teaching of Modernism in the Catholic Church is that dogmata (the teachings of the Church, which its members are required to believe) can evolve over time – not only in their expression but also in their substance – rather than remaining the same in substance for all time. This postulate makes Modernism unique in the history of heresies in the Church. The “evolution of dogma” theory, much in the manner of Luther’s theory of salvation sola fide (‘by faith alone’) allows for a constant updating of standards of morality. PASCENDI DOMINICI GREGIS (“Feeding the Lord’s Flock”) was a[…]

Treatise on True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary

TREATISE ON TRUE DEVOTION TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY – INTRODUCTION OF SAINT LOUIS MARIE DE MONTFORT 1. It was through the Blessed Virgin Mary that Jesus came into the world, and it is also through her that he must reign in the world. 2. Because Mary remained hidden during her life she is called by the Holy Spirit and the Church “Alma Mater”, Mother hidden and unknown. So great was her humility that she desired nothing more upon earth than to remain unknown to herself and to others, and to be known only to God. 3. In answer to her[…]
