Our Lady of Peace Rosary

Praying the Rosary for Peace

The grave challenges confronting the world at the start of this new Millennium lead us to think that only an intervention from on high, capable of guiding the hearts of those living in situations of conflict and those governing the destinies of nations, can give reason to hope for a brighter future. “When once men recognize, both in private and public life, that Christ is King, society will at last receive the great blessings of real liberty, well-ordered discipline, peace and harmony.” Pope Pius XI, The Encyclical on the Kingship of Christ. The Rosary is by its nature a prayer[…]

The Evil Scourge of War

The Evil Scourge of War by Franz Hunolt, 1889

And so it is, my dear brethren; the most terrible of all public calamities is war. Pestilence and contagious diseases are a severe punishment, and so is famine and hunger; but if war once breaks out in a country, you have all those other plagues with it; for, as experience teaches, they follow in its train, as matters of necessity. All trials and contradictions, no matter what their name may be, are, indeed, punishments, but they are salutary punishments, which serve to bring men to a sense of the wickedness of their ways, and to lead them to God; but,[…]

Traditional Liturgical Calendar - Traditional Latin Mass

2022 Traditional Liturgical Calendar: Tridentine Latin Mass

Keep close to the Catholic Church at all times, for the Church alone can give you true peace, since she alone possesses Jesus, the true Prince of Peace, in the Blessed Sacrament. ~St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina. The Traditional Latin Mass, “The Mass of All Ages” is making a great comeback among Catholics of all ages. Do not depart by one iota from traditional Catholic doctrine: Roman Catholicism is pure and unadulterated – as practiced from the time of Our Lord. In these turbulent times of sodomite and masonic invasion with the intent of destroying Christ’s Church from within, Catholics should[…]

Nativity Virgin Mary

Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Theotokos – September 8

The Feast of the Nativity of Our Most Holy Lady, the Mother of God (Theotokos) and Ever-Virgin Mary is celebrated on September 8 each year. The Feast commemorates the birth of the Mother of Jesus Christ, our Lord. The birth and early life of the Virgin Mary is not recorded in the Gospels or other books of the New Testament, however this information can be found in a work dating from the second century, known as the Protevangelium of St. James (dated to ca. A.D. 125),  apocryphal Gospel of the Nativity of Mary (translated from the Hebrew by St. Jerome, A.D.[…]

Counterfeit church

On Communion with Counterfeit Church: Faithful have the right to know …

“They have indeed a strict right to know that the priests who serve them are not in communion with a counterfeit church.” Archbishop Lefebvre, “Open Letter to Cardinal Gantin”. Comment: Priests have a great role to play in the defense of the Faith. But you also have a role to play, dear Faithful, in the defense of the Faith. This role is to require that your priests be not in communion with the destructors of the Faith. It is not by asking your priests to compromise with the destructors of the Faith that you will be faithful to God, but[…]

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[…]

Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary – Feast Day August 15th

The dogma of the Assumption is the answer of the Church to a materialistic world. It implicitly states that the perfection of our faculties and bodily skills will be fully exercised only in heaven, where they attain fulfillment in contemplating God. The Assumption was the moment of creation’s fulfillment, the first-fruit of God’s plan for mankind — a plan which includes our own appearance, body and soul, before the throne of God. May the Immaculate Mother of God and our co-redeemer, in the new glory of this revelation, focus the mind of the world on the true aim of progress[…]

Death of the Virgin, Hugo van der Goes, c 1480

Novena to Our Lady of the Assumption

First Day of Novena – Start on August 6th GLORY OF MARY IN DEATH She was well prepared to die LET us meditate how glorious Mary was at the moment of her death, because in life she was so well prepared to die: first, by reason of her ardent longing to see her God and to be again united to her Son; and next, by the unapproachable merit of her consummate perfection. Then, reflecting how different we are from Mary in our own practice of preparation for our death, let us say : 1. Most holy Virgin, who, in order to[…]

Blessed Sacrament

Spiritual Communion Prayers & Chaplet of the Blessed Sacrament

Spiritual Communion is a practice among Christians of desiring union with Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist as a response to God’s own desire for union. It is used as a preparation for Holy Mass, and also by individuals who cannot receive Holy Communion Sacramentally (e.g. a state of being bedridden, absence of a priest/minister, severe illness). The value of a Spiritual Communion well done is great. We can and we must make a Spiritual Communion often. This is a very simple act. It is done simply by thinking of Jesus and His great Love for you, and in our[…]

Psalms for Different Occasions

Praying Certain Psalms When You Stand in Need

The Psalter is a holy book containing a collection of sacred songs of the Old Testament Church. David himself, the creator of the psalms, notes that “the psalms of Israel are magnificent,” and explains the reasons for this magnificence: The Spirit of the Lord is a verb in me, and His word in my tongue (2 Sam. 23: 2). In the first centuries after Christ, many Christians knew the Psalter by heart. The Holy Fathers, monks, and the desert herders, spent most of their time singing psalms, without interrupting it during the day and night. Lay people recited them in the[…]
