How Ancient is the Canon of the Mass?
By Rev. Fr. Francisco Radecki, CMRI; originally published in Reign of Mary #70, Winter 1992

The Religious Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen
A Brief History.
All religious orders and congregations in the Catholic Church began as a small community of devout men and women united by simple guidelines. Over a period of time, each order adopted a Rule and Constitutions which were approved by the Church....

The Marian Priests
It is the goal of this Congregation to form the kind of Marian priest for which St. Louis Marie de Montfort prayed two centuries ago: “...true servants of the Blessed Virgin, who, like St. Dominic, would go everywhere with the bright and burning torch of the holy Gospels in their mouth and the Holy rosary in their hand...”

The Marian Brothers
Of the three categories of religious — priests, Brothers and Sisters — that of Brother seems to be the most overlooked. Why? The differences between a priest and a Brother are not properly understood....

The Marian Sisters
...the life of a Sister is primarily one of love and intimate union with Christ. As His spouse, she shares in the interests of His Sacred Heart. Like Him, she lives in poverty, simplicity, humility, and obedience. In union with Him, she sacrifices herself for the salvation of souls....

By Bishop Mark A. Pivarunas, CMRI; published in Reign of Mary #71, Spring 1992
Sedevacantism is the theological position of those traditional Catholics who most certainly believe in the Papacy, Papal Infallibility, and the Primacy of the Roman Pontiff, and yet do not recognize John Paul II as a legitimate successor of Peter in the Primacy....

“The Supreme Judge of the Faithful”
Originally published in Reign of Mary #56, Spring 1988
If Catholics wishing to remain loyal to the Church reserve to themselves the right to interpret the Code of Canon Law according to their own private judgment, they are setting up an authority in opposition to that of the Church, who alone has the right to interpret her laws.

The Assisi Gathering: “The Most Important Thing...”
Originally published in Reign of Mary #50, Fall 1986
On October 27, 1986, the world witnessed the spectacle of religious leaders from around the globe meeting in the little Umbrian village of Assisi to pray for peace.

An Expose of the Vatican II Decree Dignatitis Humanae
By Most Rev. Mark A. Pivarunas, CMRI; published in Reign of Mary #80, Spring 1995
...The reason this decree was the most controversial and the most destructive is that it explicitly taught doctrines previously condemned by past Popes. And this was so blatant that many conservative Council Fathers opposed it to the very end; while even the liberal cardinals, bishops and theologians who promoted the teachings of Dignitatis Humanae had to confess their inability to reconcile this decree with the past condemnations of Popes....

The Catechism of Ecumenism
By the Most Rev. Robert McKenna, O.P.; published in Reign of Mary #79, Spring 1994
The errors of the Wojtyla catechism are as subtle as they are numerous, just as is the case with the decrees of Vatican Council II. Indeed, the new Catechism is the Council’s teachings dodified, and the counterpart of the new Code of Canon Law promulgated in 1983.
