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 an excerpt of Fr. Oswalt’s online interview explaining why he left the Conciliar Church and was ordained in the traditional Catholic rite. 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.
