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 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[…]

2020 Traditional Liturgical Calendar: Tridentine Latin Mass

Healing Prayers to Saint Raphael the Archangel

According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the existence of the spiritual, non-corporeal beings that Sacred Scripture usually calls “angels” is a truth of faith. The witness of Scripture is as clear as the unanimity of Tradition. St. Augustine says: “‘Angel’ is the name of their office, not of their nature. If you seek the name of their nature, it is ‘spirit’; if you seek the name of their office, it is ‘angel’: from what they are, ‘spirit’, from what they do, ‘angel.’”188 With their whole beings the angels are servants and messengers of God.  Because they “always behold[…]

“Recordare, Domine” Votive Mass in the Time of Pestilence

Some of the richest treasures of the traditional Roman Liturgy are the Votive Masses near the back of the St. Andrew’s Missal (1945 Edition). These devotions were systematically and purposely stripped out of the church’s life, as Fr. John Zuhlsdorf noted, to weaken our Catholic identity and to make us more susceptible to the winds of the world with its shifting fads and mores. The votive masses were an easy target for the radical reformers, and because many faithful are now frozen at 1962 as per Summorum Pontificum, so you might hear ‘Recordare domine’ Mass only in an independent chapel[…]
