° Response to Bishop Williamson
On the Subject of the Vacancy of the Roman See
by Most Rev. Donald Sanborn
Bishop Williamson has recently placed on his Kyrie Eleison blog a series of articles attempting to refute sedevacantism. Having attracted to himself the staunchest antimodernists in the SSPX, Bishop Williamson, I believe, is finding among them a certain tendency toward sedevacantism...
° Monsignor Moisés Carmona Rivera, Pillar of Traditionalism in Mexico
Part I: Cooperation with Fr. Sáenz y Arriaga
by Rev. Fr. Daniel A. Perez Gomez
Trying to understand Monsignor Moises Carmona’s relevance as an important supporter of Traditionalism in Mexico would be in vain if one is not acquainted with the first pillar of Catholic orthodoxy in our country [Mexico] after the innovations sadly promoted by the Second Vatican Council. This man was a tower of strength and traditional values, whose brave voice was the first one to resound in our homeland — the voice of the Reverend Fr. Joaquín Sáenz y Arriaga, a Jesuit priest...
° The Masterminds of Vatican II
Part III: Wolves Poised to Attack
by Rev. Fr. Francisco Radecki, CMRI
The havoc caused by the Modernist Revolution that occurred during the twentieth century is unprecedented. It was a total upheaval of Catholic belief, worship and practice. As a result, Modern Catholics have little in common with Catholics who lived before Vatican II (1962-1965). There are two distinct churches: the Catholic Church Christ founded and the Counterfeit Church formed during Vatican II....
° Soldiers of Christ, Armed for the Supreme Battle
The Seven Gifts of the Holy Ghost
by Sr. Mary Cabrini, OP
The sacrament of Confirmation should be another Pentecost for each of us. As the Apostles were transformed by the infusion of the seven gifts of the Holy Ghost, so our souls are similarly affected through these gifts. Our true purpose in life is to reproduce the Christ-life in our souls...
° Adoremus in Aeternum
The Sacred Liturgy (Part VII: The Fruits of the Mass)
by Rev. Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI
...Let us now turn our attention to the term fruits of the Mass. This term indicates the benefits or graces given to men from the offering of the Sacrifice of the Mass. We all know that the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is of infinite value. Yet the benefits received by those who participate are limited and are of various degrees. First, let us examine what these spiritual fruits are. They may be divided into three categories: (1) impetratory, meaning that the Mass imparts spiritual and temporal benefits...
° Respice Stellam
How Well Do We Defend Mary?
by Rev. Fr. Gabriel Lavery, CMRI
What is our response when Mary is spoken against? Do we respond merely in a negative way, denying that Catholics worship Mary as a god? Do we explain away this devotion, making it seem as if it was really just a small part of our spiritual life, merely a fitting honor given to Godís Mother, rather than a devotion upon which our salvation depends?...
° In Season — Out of Season
The Holy Trinity
by Rev. Fr. Bernard Uttley, OSB
My beloved people, today is the wonderful feast of the Most Holy Trinity. It is the only feast that is entirely dedicated to God Himself. The Holy Trinity is the greatest, the ultimate, the most supreme, mystery of our faith. It is the principal and fundamental doctrine of Christianity; to deny the Trinity is to reject the Christian Faith. This mystery was revealed to us by Our Lord Jesus Christ because God not only wants to be served by us, but to be intimately known and loved by us for Who and What He really is. God need not have told us this secret, but it is a mark of true love to want to be intimately known...
° Servus Mariae
The Predominant Fault
by Rev. Fr. Dominic Radecki, CMRI
According to St. Ignatius, the whole spiritual combat can be reduced to two points: reflection and self-conquest. If we want to be cured of sin and selfishness, we must go to the source of the problem which is our predominant sin. We must relentlessly strive to overcome it as it is the greatest danger to our salvation.
