by Rev. Anthony Cekada
A New Jersey lawyer and traditionalist, Christopher A. Ferrara, Esq., has recently produced an anti-sedevacantist tract entitled “Defending the Papacy: Opposing the Sedevacantist Enterprise.” ...It is a rich and heady stew of errors, half-truths and misrepresentations about theological terms....

Conversion of the Jews Not Necessary According to Modern Church
A Commentary
This startling heresy has come more sharply into focus in the last twenty-five years or so. Although not explicitly contained in Nostra Aetate of Vatican II, it was there implicitly (after all, in the spirit of false ecumenism, we can’t be teaching the necessity of salvation in the one true Church founded by Christ). ...

Convent Stereotypes
...It is a strange thing, but the idea of religious vocation conjures up certain stereotypes of the types of girls who “should” enter the convent: girls who are ladylike and reserved, or who don’t quite fit with the “in” crowd; girls who are shy and show no interest in boys; girls who are know for being deeply spiritual and devout.

The Sower and the Seed (Part 3)
...With these words Our Lord describes those who hear and understand the word of God and who are to discern right from wrong, but who choke out the life of grace in their souls by their preoccupation with the things of this world: its riches and pleasures. Christ is pointing out that an excessive seeking after the things of this world seriously harms the spiritual life of a person’s soul.....
