° Letter from the Editor

° New Age, New Religion
 The Danger of New Age Religion Pervades Modern Society
 by Rev. Benedict Hughes, CMRI
Likely, you have often heard the term “New Age.” This term is variously used in reference to everything from music to medicine, from diet to environmentalism. But our concern as Catholics is its application to religious thought....

° Papal Infallibility and the Crisis in the Church Today (Part 2)
 Part I: Explanation of Church Teaching on Papal Infallibility
 by Rev. Fr. Noel Barbara
This two-part series is the translation of a lecture given originally in French by Fr. Barbara in the 1980ís. The author (who was probably the first European priest to come to the conclusion of the vacancy in the papal chair), after recalling the Catholic doctrine on the Church and its Magisterium, shows why the popes of Vatican II cannot be true popes.

° It’s Only Words, Right?
 by Rev. Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI
You may recall that last year some changes were made in the English version of the Novus Ordo “Mass,” to more accurately translate the Latin. Most notable among these changes was the revision of the words of consecration, going back to “many” in place of “all” in the form of the consecration of the wine. Well, this matter of the form of the consecration of the wine has been in the news again....

° Respice Stellam, Voca Mariam
 Wonderful Promises from Our Lady

Let us, then, review each of these promises and become familiar with their requirements, that we may obtain the wonderful blessings our heavenly Mother wishes to bestow upon those who honor her by their fulfillment...

° In Season — Out of Season
 “If Thou Hast Known the Things That Are for Thy Peace..."
 by Rev. Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI
My dearly beloved in Christ, todayís Gospel presents to us the very sad story of Our Lord weeping over the city of Jerusalem. Why did He weep? Because He knew the destruction that would eventually come upon the city, which took place in the year 70, some 47 years later...

° Adoremus in Aeternum
 The Sacred Liturgy (Part 1: General Principles)
 by Rev. Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI
Just exactly what is meant by the word liturgy? We often hear or use this word, but perhaps without fully understanding its significance. Liturgy comes from the Greek leitourgia, a compound of leiton (public) and ergon (work). Thus, we can say that liturgy is a public work, and specifically, it is the worship of God by His Church, the public practice of the virtue of religion...

° Pages from the Past
 Prince Henry the Navigator (Part I: The Island Discoveries — Nothing by Chance)
 by Rev. Fr. Brendan Hughes, CMRI
...It was Henry who unified the maritime activity of a nation of merely a million, thereby being honored in history as Prince Henry the Navigator. His motives were five: to learn of the land beyond the Canary Islands and the African mainland Cape Bojador, to establish trade, to reconnoiter the strength and extent of the Moorish Empire, to search for Christians with whom to ally in a holy war, and to spread the Holy Faith and secure the salvation of souls...

° Servus Mariae
 Maintain Your Peace of Soul Amid Suffering
 by Rev. Fr. Dominic Radecki, CMRI
Since the fall of our first parents, pain is inevitable in life. Despite this knowledge, we often think and act as though we expect to pass through life free from suffering. Unfortunately, we simply canít be in control of all the circumstances of our lives at all times. We must accept our limitations and the fact that suffering is inevitable...
