Roman Ratification (Part II): A Priest Responds

Immediately after the publishing of our article “Preliminary Thoughts on a Roman Ratification,” we received the following email from a priest who took exception to the “cautious” approach we took.   He is not a native English speaker, and gave me permission to “smooth out” his English, and I have done so without softening any of…

Resistance Growing Everywhere

Resistance Growing Evereywhere By Sean Johnson 12/16/17   The beleaguered Resistance faithful have patiently persevered these last seven years amidst very difficult circumstances: Infighting (some of it manufactured by those both inside and outside the Resistance); defections; apathy; hopelessness; the silence of SSPX clergy; a tremendous shortage of Resistance priests; the siren song of sedevacantism;…
