"The Little Number of Those Who Are Saved" by St. Leonard of Port Maurice

“The Little Number of Those Who Are Saved” by St. Leonard of Port Maurice

Saint Leonard of Port Maurice was a most holy Franciscan friar who lived at the monastery of Saint Bonaventure in Rome. He was one of the greatest missioners in the history of the Church. He used to preach to thousands in the open square of every city and town where the churches could not hold his listeners. So brilliant and holy was his eloquence that once when he gave a two weeks’ mission in Rome, the Pope and College of Cardinals came to hear him. The Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin, the adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and the[…]

Ecclesiastical Tradition

Ecclesiastical Tradition and Teaching of Doctors of the Church

“It is unlawful to alter the established customs of the Church …Remove not the ancient landmarks which thy fathers have set.” – St. Peter Damien, Doctor of the Church. “Let everything that conflicts with ecclesiastical tradition and teaching, and that has been innovated and done contrary to the examples outlined by the saints and the venerable Fathers, or that shall hereafter at any time be done in such a fashion, be anathema.” Second Council of Nicea. “If anyone rejects any written or unwritten tradition of the Church, let him be anathema.” Second Council of Nicea. New Doctrines are not Catholic. They are heresy. The[…]

The Great Apostasy

The Great Apostasy – Sermons by Fathers of the Society of Jesus (1870)

“Veruntamen Filius hominis veniens , puias , inueniet fidem in terra ?– But yet the Son of Man when He cometh, shall He find, think you, faith on earth ?“ (Words taken from the 8th verse of the 18th chapter of St. Luke’s Gospel.) THESE words of sad foreboding were uttered by our Blessed Lord when he had been exhorting His disciples never to faint or grow weary in prayer. He told them how the unjust judge had avenged the poor widow’s wrong, simply because, in her importunity, she gave him no peace till he did so. He feared not[…]

A Shepherd or a Hireling?

A Shepherd or a Hireling?

Find out if you are under a shepherd or a hireling. Here 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[…]

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[…]

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[…]

His Holiness Pope Pius X: Restore the Authority of Religion and Christian Moral DisciplineII in 1951

Quamvis Inquieti: To Restore the Authority of Religion and Christian Moral Discipline

Allocution of His Holiness Pope Pius XII to to the Fathers of the Society of Jesus, Delegates in General Congregation XXIX, Sep. 17, 1946 Now there is nothing that calls us more urgently and pressingly than to restore the authority of religion and Christian moral discipline with due honor and vigor. Alas, into what times we have fallen because of the negligence of those immortal goods given to us by God! Wherever one looks one sees those who are totally ignorant of the Catholic faith, even the rudiments of religion itself. We see those who see nothing impious in crimes and license,[…]

His Holiness Pope Pius X: Restore the Authority of Religion and Christian Moral DisciplineII in 1951

What Happens when Church Weakens the Law of God?

“Ancora una volta” by Pope Ven. Pius XII Address to the FaithfulRome; Sunday, February 20, 1949 Romans! Beloved sons and daughters! Once again, in a grave and dolorous hour, the faithful people of the Eternal City has rushed to its Bishop and Father. Once again, this superb colonnade seems barely able to embrace with its gigantic arms the crowds, which like waves driven by an irresistible force, have flowed to the threshold of the Vatican Basilica, in order to attend the Mass of Atonement in the central point of the whole Catholic world and to pour out the sentiments with[…]

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[…]

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[…]

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[…]
