Current Editions of CMRI’s Publications

Reign of Mary #158 cover    The Reign of Mary
CMRI’s quarterly magazine: (Subscribe)
Issue No. 158 features an eye-opening article on one of the many great apostolates by which the Catholic Church sought to reclaim the souls of fallen women and their children by the work of the Magdalene Laundries, which sadly, are portrayed by the modern media and the movie industry as no more than slave labor camps run by nuns. Fr. Benedict Hughes then presents an excellent an editorial commenting on Bergoglio’s recent encyclical on “climate change.” Next comes an article that goes back to the basics, a review of the basic doctrine on the Catholic Church written by Fr. Francisco Radecki, CMRI. And for those who have been following the series on Bishop Moises Carmona Rivera, Part V consists almost entirely of his hard-hitting response to objections to his fidelity to the traditional Catholic Faith in the form of a letter he wrote to one of his fellow priests. In the realm of the spiritual life, Fr. Bernard Uttley, OSB, shares with us some beautiful thoughts on the Precious Blood of Jesus, and Fr. Dominic Radecki, CMRI, writes about the power of Our Lady’s intercession, while the series on the Sacred Liturgy takes a look at the use of bells in the liturgy.

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.
