Diabolical Disorientation – An Explanation of the Current Crisis

By FR. NICHOLAS GRUNER, S.T.L., S.T.D. [Canada]Taken from the Summer, 2006 Issue, THE FATIMA CRUSADER NOTE: The term “Diabolical Disorientation” comes up in conversation more and more frequently. What is it? What does it mean? What does it have to do with me? Father Gruner answers your questions about this epidemic that has been slowly infecting large segments of the Catholic Church collectively as well as many individual souls of the Faithful. WHEN a person is disoriented, he is in a state of confusion and loses his bearings. He does not understand things clearly. It’s similar to being away and[…]

Nicodemus Silivanovich, The Judas Kiss

The Race of Judas is Not Extinct

The race of Judas is not extinct. The traitors who betray their Master with a kiss have been multiplied. It would have been better for them had they never been born! St. Paul says that these sacrilegious souls eat and drink their own damnation! (I Cor. 11:29). You cannot imagine what devilish fury consumes them in their hatred for the Person of Jesus present under the white veil of the Host. There, He is the center and object of an exquisite love. But there He is also the Victim of a hatred like that of the scribes and priests who[…]

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[…]

Pope Pius IX on The Papal Monarchy

PIUS IX, SUPREME PONTIFF: To Our dear son Prosper Guéranger, of the Benedictine Congregation of France, Abbot of Solesmes

Brief from Pope Pius IX on The Papal Monarchy. Dear son, greetings and Our apostolic blessing. It is truly regrettable, dear son, that there are among Catholics certain men who, while glorying in this name, are thoroughly imbued with corrupted principles, and adhere to them so resolutely that they no longer know how to subject their intellect simply to a contrary judgment of this Holy See, even when that judgment is corroborated by the general consensus and recommendations of the Bishops. Instead, thinking that the progress and happiness of human society depends entirely upon those principles, they endeavor to incline[…]

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[…]

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[…]

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[…]

Execrabilis by Pope Pius II

Execrabilis (On Appealing to a Future Council) Papal Bull of Pope Pius II

The one weapon that strikes more terror into the enemies of the Church is the Bulla of Pope Pius II, Execrabilis, on 18 January 1460 condemning conciliarism. The bull received its name from the opening word of its Latin text, which labeled as “execrable” all efforts to appeal an authoritative ruling of a Pope to a council. This bull denounces those who presume to appeal from the pope to a future council, in spite of the fact that the pope is the vicar of Jesus Christ and condemn[s] all such appeals and prohibit[s] them as erroneous and detestable. Penalties for[…]

Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

The Attacks Made by Heretics upon the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

The persecutions which the evil enemy has stirred up at various times against the most holy sacrifice of the Mass are a proof how sacred a thing it must be, and how obnoxious to the devil; otherwise he would not attack it with such violence. In the first ten centuries of the Christian Church teachers of heresy were indeed not wanting, but none of them ventured to assail the Mass, much less did they attempt to do away with it. The heretic Berengarius of Tours was the first who presumed to speak and write against the holy Mass. His erroneous[…]

Why Did the Catholic Church Prevent Vernacular Bible Translations?

“A Christian to whom a Bible has been offered by a Protestant or an agent of the Protestants should reject it with disgust, because it is forbidden by the Church. If it was accepted by inadvertence, it must be burnt as soon as possible or handed in to the Parish Priest” (Catechism of Pius X). “We were overcome with great and bitter sorrow when We learned that a pernicious plan, by no means the first, had been undertaken, whereby the most sacred books of the Bible are being spread everywhere in every vernacular tongue, with new interpretations which are contrary[…]

Reign of Christ the King

The Reign of Christ the King

“The Reign of Christ he King” By Michael Davies (1936-2004), REMNANT COLUMNIST, London. “Dominus Rex noster, ipse salvabit nos! The Lord is our King, it is He who will save us.”(Antiphon of Vespers of Christ the King). On 11 December 1925, Pope Pius XI promulgated his encyclical letter Quas primas, on the Kingship of Christ. The encyclical dealt with what the Pope described correctly as “the chief cause of the difficulties under which mankind was laboring.” He explained that the manifold evils in the world are due to the fact that the majority of men have thrust Jesus Christ and[…]

If the Shepherd Becomes a Wolf

If the Shepherd Becomes a Wolf

If the shepherd becomes a wolf, the first duty of the flock is to defend itself. Normally, the doctrine of the faith comes from the bishops to the faithful, and it is not for the faithful, who are subordinates according to the order of the faith, to judge their superiors. Yet every Christian, precisely because he may use the Christian name, has not only the necessary knowledge of the essentials of the treasure of revelation, but also the duty to protect them. The principle is invariable, whether it is a matter of faith or of conduct of life, that is,[…]
