° Letter from the Editor

° The Divine Mercy Devotion
 Why Did the Holy Office Ban It?
 by Rev. Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI
...in addition to rejecting new forms of devotion which are doctrinally questionable, there is grave concern about those which are “useless imitations or corruptions” of similar ones which have already been approved. Based on this reasoning, the Holy Office during the reigns of Pope Pius XI and Pope Pius XII forbade various new devotions...

° The Failure to Condemn
 Bergoglio relinquishes the duty to condemn evil.
 by Rev. Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI
What is particularly interesting about the popularity of Bergoglio, however, and what explains this infatuation on the part of the secular media, is Francis’ utter lack of condemnation of evil. Whereas he condemns greed, ambition and other vices in general terms, he utterly fails to condemn the red-letter evils of our day...

° The Great Promise of the Scapular
 A Theological Study of Its Meaning
 by Rev. Fr. Gabriel Lavery
There are two privileges which Our Lady has attached to the wearing of the Scapular of Mt. Carmel. One is called the Sabbatine Privilege and is based on a vision of Pope John XXII in 1322. This privilege promises an early release from Purgatory, especially on the Saturday after death. ....

 by Rev. Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI
As we have explained in previous articles, the liturgy is the public worship of God by His Church. As such, it consists of various ceremonies, carried out by sacred ministers deputed by the Church, and using rites prescribed by Holy Mother Church. In other words, the liturgy is external. But to be truly worship that is pleasing to God, there must be an internal component....

° Pages from the Past
 Prince Henry the Navigator (Part V: The Azores and Africa To Explore the Extremity)
 by Rev. Fr. Brendan Hughes, CMRI
Since Cape Blanco was already depleted by slave raids, Gonsalo Pacheco sailed his three caravels directly to the island Tider where he seized 120 captives. The coast beyond was deserted as the natives were adept at spreading warnings over long distances, and so Pacheco continued 100 miles....

° In Season — Out of Season
 Spiritual Communion: Too Little Known
 by Rev. Fr. Bernard Uttley, OSB
The holy doctrine and practice of spiritual Communion is often forgotten, underestimated, or misunderstood. Being little known, it is even less practiced.... .

° Servus Mariae
 “Be Not Anxious...”
 by Rev. Fr. Dominic Radecki, CMRI
The late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen wrote that, “One of the favorite psychological descriptions of modern man is to say that he has an anxiety complex.” He went on to say that modern anxiety is different from the anxiety of previous and more normal ages in two ways...
