Current Editions of CMRI’s Publications

Reign of Mary #155 cover    The Reign of Mary
CMRI’s quarterly magazine: (Subscribe)
Continuing to provide our readers with strong and informative articles, this issue features a logical explanation of the disunity among traditional Catholics by Mario Derksen, an editorial by Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI, on Bergoglio’s iniquitous involvement in the charismatic movement, an article written by Paul Sheahan outlining the errors in the arguments of modern day Feeneyites, as well as the second part of a series on the life of Bishop Moisés Carmona Rivera, a pillar of the traditional Catholicism in Mexico, detailing his childhood, vocation, and priestly life. After reading World Watch, you’ll find yourself asking, “Really?”, for the Vatican is joining the quest to find extraterrestrial life, “Pope” Francis joins Muslims in their prayers for peace, but neglects to mention “God” in his recipe for happiness, and a Cardinal is clueless as to whether or not Christ would approve of gay marriage.

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.
