Reign of Mary #154 cover    The Reign of Mary
CMRI’s quarterly magazine: (Subscribe)
Our current issue features a masterful response by Most Rev. Donald Sanborn to Bishop Williamson’s recent attempts to refute the sedevacantist position, as well as the first part of a series on the life of Bishop Moisés Carmona Rivera, a pillar of the traditional Catholicism in Mexico. In another thought-provoking article entitled “How Well Do We Defend Mary?”, Fr. Gabriel Lavery, CMRI, spurs us to defend our Blessed Mother with burning zeal rather than in the half-hearted, minimizing attempts that too many Catholics resort to when speaking to non-Catholics. In World Watch, read how a Catholic school celebrates the “Year of Lady Gaga”, teenagers in Syria are crucified for refusing to deny Christ, and an atheist is appointed to oversee theological studies at a modern Catholic university. A complete outline of articles is posted below.

Reclaiming a Hijacked Priesthood: Fr. Michael Oswalt speaks of his experiences in a VII seminary Ordained in the modern Catholic Church in 2008, Fr. Michael Oswalt soon came to see that not only were his orders invalid, but that his Church was not truly the Catholic Church. He came to Mount St. Michael in January of 2010 to prepare for ordination in the traditional Catholic rite, and was ordained to the priesthood on June 29, 2011.
View Fr. Oswalt’s online interview (2009) His letter to the clergy of the diocese of Rockford, a superb explanation of why the modern Church is not truly the Catholic Church, was published in Issue No. 138 of The Reign of Mary and may also be read at this link.
