Reign of Mary #153 cover    The Reign of Mary
CMRI’s quarterly magazine: (Subscribe)
“Can the Modern Church Cast Out the Devil?” Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI, discusses how since Vatican II, belief in the devil has decreased among would-be Catholics. Yet there have been several stories in the news lately about cases of possession. How does the Conciliar Church approach such cases, and does the new rite of exorcism even work? In another article, Fr. Eugen Rissling gives the Catholic answer to those people who say, “I don’ go to church because they can pray to God anywhere, for example, while walking in the forest.” And in World Watch, read how the Vatican survey confirms what we already knew: a universal apostasy from the Catholic Faith. A complete outline of articles is posted below.

Reclaiming a Hijacked Priesthood: Michael Oswalt speaks of his experiences in a VII seminary Ordained in the modern Catholic Church in 2008, 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.
