° Letter from the Editor

° The New Practice of “Dialogue”
 The Apostolic Spirit Was Destroyed by Vatican II
 by Rev. Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI
“Dialogue does not aim at conversion, but at better mutual understanding.” These shocking words were not spoken by a Protestant, but by none other than Benedict XVI, in an address to the members of the Roman Curia...

° The Ten Just Men
 The Love and Reparation of a Few Can Gain Graces for Many
 by Rev. Fr. Eugen Rissling
The names of the two cities, Sodom and Gomorrah, are well known to us. These two words are a perfect synonym for a debauched and dissolute life, the kind of life the people on earth were leading at the time of Abraham...

° Parting Words to His Priests
The Legacy of Benedict XVI
 by Rev. Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI
Three days after the surprise announcement of his intention to resign the “papacy,” Benedict XVI met with the clergy of Rome. The meeting was, no doubt, emotional for the priests present, given the occasion, but it also prompted nostalgic sentiments in Benedict himself. (The tragic nature of his comments lay in the fact that he just cannot bring himself to admit that there was anything wrong with his beloved Vatican II, as he sought to lay blame on others for the dire results of the Council...

° Respice Stellam, Voca Mariam
 Using Our Time With Mary
 by Rev. Fr. Gabriel Lavery, CMRI
All of us, most likely, would like to make a better use of our time. Some of it we waste through idleness; part of it we lose by frittering it away in occupations which are not our present duty. Much of it escapes us through idle chatter, especially in these days of cell phones, texting, Facebook, etc. How many fail to remember Our Lord’s warning that we shall render an account for every idle word! ....

° Adoremus in Aeternum
 The Sacred Liturgy (Part 3: Liturgical Vestments)
 by Rev. Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI
Since the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the greatest and most sacred action to be found in the world, it only stands to reason that everything surrounding it ought to be carefully defined and arranged, as would befit the august sacrifice. ...

° Pages from the Past
 Prince Henry the Navigator (Part IV: Prince Henry the Navigator (Part III: Beyond Bajador — Solution of Solomon)
 by Rev. Fr. Brendan Hughes, CMRI
Scarcely returned from the Tangier war, Prince Henry found himself averting civil war at home. For King Duarte’s death left the reign to his six-year-old son Afonso, whose regency was awkwardly placed with Duarte’s widow, Queen Leonor of Aragon, along with Princes Pedro and Henry...

° In Season — Out of Season
 The Resurrection of Our Lord
 by Rev. Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI
My dearly beloved, on this most holy night it gives us great joy to call to mind the glorious Resurrection of Our Lord from the dead, Who just a few hours before had been so terribly tortured, crucified and nailed to the Cross, where He died for us. Let us remember that this was not a defeat for our Divine Lord. In fact, it was His greatest victory — over sin and death...

° Servus Mariae
 Charity in the Home and With Our Neighbor
 by Rev. Fr. Dominic Radecki, CMRI
In our day-to-day living it seems that we too often fail to practice the principles of charity as taught by Christ. This is seen both in our dealings with our family and with our neighbor. It is interesting to note that we often deal better with the more severe trials which are mountains in our life than we do with the tiny grains of sand which are in our shoe. We live at a time in which charity has grown cold.
