A New Foundation for a New Foundation

A New Foundation for a New Foundation

  A couple weeks ago, we posted an update regarding frugal construction plans for a (hoped for) future main house for the Victim Adorers of the Holy Face of Jesus in Ireland, which foresees the eventual use of shipping container construction as an affordable, budget-conscious means by which to build. That article contained pictures of the excavation, as well…

Pope Blesses SSPX Mission in Vanuatu?

[Please See update at the conclusion of this article -SP] An obscure SSPX mission in the South Pacific island of Vanuatu recently received the papal blessing of Pope Francis. It is a bad sign, when your enemies start to love you (or put differently, when your enemies begin to perceive you as friends, and vice-versa). …

Ruminations on Death

Ruminations on Death

A more Catholic sentiment than the Dylan Thomas poem I posted last month, amidst much personal anguish:   Death, be not proud, though some have called thee Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so; For those whom thou thinkst thou dost overthrow Die not, poor Death, nor yet canst thou kill me. From rest and…

Does the Vatican Read Sodalitium Pianum?

Does the Vatican Read Sodalitium Pianum?

Some interesting viewers today (and not for the first time): Interesting that someone in the Vatican would be Googling for an English translation of St. Alphonsus’s Theologia Moralis.   Since even the modernist prelates are proficient in Latin (e.g., I even studied Latin in an American Novus Ordo seminary before coming to Tradition), I am guessing…

Following the SSPX No Matter What

If you haven’t checked out Samuel Loeman’s newly revamped Tradidi website yet, now would be a good time to do it: He has just translated a short article from Gloria.tv titled Is the Prelature Close?, which explains why most SSPX clergy and faithful will stay right where they are, no matter what Rome or Menzingen do next. A choice…

Fight or Flight?

Fight or Flight?

Pope Leo XIII (1878 – 1903) A timely excerpt from the encyclical Sapientiae Christianae 14. But in this same matter, touching Christian faith, there are other duties whose exact and religious observance, necessary at all times in the interests of eternal salvation, become more especially so in these our days. Amid such reckless and widespread folly…

Pfeifferites Tell Archbishop Lefebvre to Get Lost!

Pfeifferites Tell Archbishop Lefebvre to Get Lost!

I plan to bump this post every couple months, as it shows quite nicely the contradiction between Fr. Pfeiffer and the Sect, and Archbishop Lefebvre in the matter of the transmission of sanctifying grace to well disposed Novus Ordo communicants. You can follow Fr. Pfeiffer, or you can follow Archbishop Lefebvre, but you can’t follow…
