Non Habemus Papam
by the Very Rev. Fr. Casimir Puskorius, CMRI
Soon after Joseph Ratzinger was elected by his fellow Modernist cardinals and took the name of Benedict XVI, there was a flurry of hope among conservative Catholics that maybe, just maybe, he would start to stem the tide of heresy which had flooded the ecclesiastical landscape since Vatican II. ... Some wondered if the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen would adopte a “wait and see” attitude about Benedict XVI’s legitimacy as pope. To the disappointment of only a few, CMRI did not hold this expectation....
The Will of Pope Pius XII
“Miserere mei, Deus, secundum misericordiam tuam!” These words which, aware that I was unworthy and unequal of them, I pronounced at the moment in which with trepidation I accepted election as Supreme Pontiff, I now repeat with ever more foundation....
Fr. O’Reilly on the Idea of a Long-Term Vacancy of the Holy See
by John Daly (revised and edited by John Lane, October 1999)
...it would be exceedingly rash to set any prejudged limits as to what God will be prepared to allow to happen to the Holy See (other, of course, than that a true pope will never fall into heresy, nor in any way err)....
Some Comments on “Lay” Papal Elections
by John Lane
The “election” of Fr. Lucian Pulvermacher as “pope” has confused some good Catholics. Here is a man who appeared to be basically a sound, traditional, Catholic priest, of some standing in the remnant Church, despite his obvious faults, who has taken the extraordinary step of declaring himself pope....
Letter from the Bishop
...This issue of the seminary newsletter will briefly address a topic which was treated this past summer during an apologetics seminar held at Immaculate Conception Church in St. Cloud, Minnesota. The topic was ecumenism. The reason I consider it appropriate to cover this issue is especially in light of the false ecumenism that is rampant in the modern Church of Vatican II....
From Catholic Liturgics by Richard Stapper, S.T.D.
The cemetery is the place of rest where the bodies of Christians who have died await the day of judgment. For pagans death was an evil and the thought of it was most terrifying....
Our Lady of Good Success
by Sr. Mary Agatha, CMRI
...There can be no doubt that traditional Catholics find immeasurable strength and consolation in the apparitions of the Queen of Heaven over the past two centuries. In her messages at Fatima, Lourdes, Rue du Bac, and La Salette especially, we find loving and urgent pleas with strong, even apocalyptical, overtones. Many, however, may be surprised to learn that Our Lady’s active solicitude for the souls living in these perilous times stretches back far before any of these apparitions. About 400 years ago, as early as 1610, the Blessed Virgin appeared to a humble nun in Quito, Equador, foretelling to her that in these days the light of the Faith would be all but destroyed and that society would be almost corrupt. Yet, as at Fatima, Our Lady’s message at Quito was also one of hope and confidence....
“I Thought I Had a Vocation, But Now...”
Dear Sister, I hope that you can help me with something that has come up in my life. Sister, you know that I’ talked about entering the convent for as long as I’ve known you. But a few weeks ago I met a young man — a model traditional Catholic. Now I’m wondering if I might have been mistaken about my vocation all this time. How can I know for SURE whether God wants me to be a nun?...

...Flavia, a servant, is in the habit of buying supplies in the store of Emporius. One day she hands to Emporius, who has waited upon her personally, a ten-dollar bill to be changed; he gives her three dollars too much, which fact Flavia only notices on arriving home....
The Large Family (Part III)
An Address of Pope Pius XII to the Directors of the Associations for Large Families of Rome and of Italy, January 20, 1958
Large families are the most splendid flower-beds in the garden of the Church; happiness flowers in them and sanctity ripens in favorable soil. Every family group, even the smallest, was meant by God to be an oasis of spiritual peace....
The Sower and the Seed (Part 2)
by Rev. Fr. Dominic Radecki, CMRI
Today we treat of the third and final representation of the thorns of which Jesus speaks — that is, the sinful pleasures of the world. Our Lord taught us that these endanger the soul because they act as thorns and briars, stifling its spiritual growth....
