I wish you all this day a most blessed Feast of St. Louis IX, Patron of the Third Order Secular of St. Francis and King of France!

 

Tertiaries and cordbearers may obtain a plenary indulgence this day by renewing their profession/novitiate/commitment and fulfilling the usual conditions required for a plenary indulgence.

 

May St. Louis IX’s descendant, the Great Catholic Monarch, come soon to crush the godless Judeo-Masonic republics and establish again the Holy Roman Empire!  Deo gratias!

Over the past four years, the most prominent leaders of the Resistance have been Bishop Williamson and Father Pfeiffer. These priests have led by example, bringing the Sacraments all over the world to many different Mass Centers, taught clearly the proper Doctrine and warned of the errors of the new direction of both the nSSPX and their new masters in the Vatican. Unfortunately, both have made serious prudential errors, resulting in the undermining of the Resistance, making it a minefield both for those in the Resistance and for those who are considering joining it.
 
BW has consecrated two bishops who teach solid Doctrine and are committed to preserving the legacy of Archbishop Lefebvre. For this, we are most grateful.
 
In the absence of solid clerical leadership, members of the laity have risen to the task. The “Leader of the Resistance” is a key threat to the effectiveness of Father Pfeiffer. Some members of the laity have heavily promoted the acceptance of an irregular “bishop”. Others have written on the acceptability of the NOM under certain circumstances, and many cannot see the wisdom of the Red Light Position, recommending that they can, as BW put it, “nourish their Faith” in Masses offered by priests in an organization that is headed in the wrong direction. So much for lay leadership.
 
We are encouraged by the actions of other priests of the Resistance. A few priests are offering the Sacraments to people formerly served by OLMC. Fr Ortiz authored comprehensive documents exposing the irregular “bishop”. The Dominicans are continually teaching proper Doctrine. The Franciscans have criticized the nSSPX and might join the Resistance (we hope). Bishop Faure has set up a seminary and, within the past few weeks, a new association for priests.
 
Contrary to the position of a loose association of independent priests, we maintain that the Resistance needs stronger leadership from the priests and bishops. Standards have to be defined by and for the priests to adhere to in order to help the laity to save their souls. The laity need to know which priests can be relied upon now and how to determine over time if the priests are still reliable. The excuse of a lack of a canonical status is unacceptable – strong moral leadership and properly defined standards are needed for the Resistance.

Prayer Request

24 August 2016

Please pray for the soul and the family of a parishioner (who is also a sister in the TOSF) whose father-in-law passed away last night.

I wish you all a most blessed Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

 

May we, through our Mother’s Immaculate Heart, soon receive a pope who will consecrate Russia to Her Immaculate Heart in union with the bishops of the world as She requested to Sr. Lucia in 1929.

 

All for the Reign and Glory of the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts!

 

Immaculate Heart of Mary

From John Vennari
 
On August 11 I received a grave prognosis. I have a cancerous tumor in my colan and the cancer has spread to the diertinium.
 
The only thing the cancer institute offers is chemotherapy. And even this is not something that will cure, but only contain it for a time.
 
I am now pursuing alternative/natural means under the guidance of competence medical personnel – one being an MD.
 
I only mention this now because the news was sent out prematurely by a well-meaning individual who circulated a private email on the topic. I had intended this news to remain private for the moment.
 
In any case, as time goes on, I will reveal more.
 
The case is very serious. I am keeping busy and staying upbeat.
 
Saint Philomena has featured heavily in this drama in a manner I will perhaps describe in the future (look at the date of prognosis, the feast of St. Philomena).
 
My family is making a novena to both Our Lady of Good Success and Saint Philomena.
 
Please, please, remember my condition in your prayers.
 
Thank you
 
John Vennari

SSPX and Visiting Priests

12 August 2016

Recently I received the following e-mail:

 

“St. Mary’s, KS recently has had separate visits by two priests, Fr. Tilosanec and Fr. McLucas.

 

“Fr. McLucas offered mass there a few weeks ago.

 

“Fr. Tilosaec offered masses, (one on a Sunday), heard confessions, and left ciboria of consecrated hosts in the tabernacle.

 

“Both priests were ordained in the dubious New Rite. Both have not been conditionally reordained, as was the requirement of Archbishop Lefebvre and the ‘Old SSPX’.

 

“Needless to say this has caused quite a stir in St. Mary’s.

 

“District headquarters was contacted by several people to no avail. The response was that conditional reordination is no longer necessary. Parishoners were told to ‘trust the SSPX’.

 

“Attached are two handwritten letters (see here and here) by the Archbishop about apostate Rome and conditional reordination.

 

“Be aware of ‘visiting priests’ at the SSPX.”

 

My postface:

 

The neo-SSPX is sinking more and more into the Novus Ordo world.  It was toast years ago, but its colour becomes more like charcoal with each passing day.  And yet there are those who claim to be part of the Resistance who still try to justify their attendance at neo-SSPX Masses!  Even worse there are supposed Resistance bishops and priests who tell these attendees that it is okay to attend the Masses of certain neo-SSPX priests despite the fact that these same neo-SSPX priests have failed to publicly speak out against their leadership’s betrayal (now for over four years) of Catholic Tradition and the mission and memory of their saintly founder, Archbishop Lefebvre!  Incredible!  What exactly are these so called yellow lighters resisting?  The common justification given is that these neo-SSPX priests are doctrinally orthodox in that they don’t teach heresy or errors, but only the truth.  My counterargument is that, even if it true that they teach only the truth, is it really sufficient to teach the truth, but avoid condemning errors being taught by your own superiors?  No!  The flock need to be warned.  These superiors have been given plenty of opportunity to publicly retract their errors, but they have not done so.  Bishop Fellay, for example, still thinks that there is nothing wrong with his abominable April 15, 2012 Doctrinal Declaration.

 

My friends, we must follow the mind of the Church in teaching the truth AND condemning errors contrary to that truth.  These “doctrinally orthodox” neo-SSPX priests need to publicly condemn the errors of their superiors.  Otherwise, they are really no better than the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter priests who do the same in teaching the truth, but remain publicly silent against the errors of their own superiors and consequently place their flock in spiritual danger.  And the yellow lighters need to become red lighters.  They can’t scream and shout against the errors of the neo-SSPX superiors, but then unite in the greatest act of public worship with priests who remain publicly silent against the same errors of these same superiors.  Rather, they should get in the trenches, forgo the sacraments if they have to, and feed instead on the Holy Rosary, Brown Scapular, Spiritual Communions, traditional devotions, etc.  May of us have done so for years and, by the grace of God, are still going strong.  Deo gratias!

Pseudo-traditionalist groups include the Neo-SSPX, Fraternity of St. Peter, Institute of Christ the King, Institute of the Good Shepherd, and other Ecclesia Dei communities who think they need canonical recognition from apostate Rome to be considered Catholic and/or special permission from the same to celebrate Mass according to the Roman Rite codified by Pope St. Pius V.

 

“No” to the Novus Ordo and these pseudo-traditionalist groups!

 

Follow instead the line of the saintly Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, the Saint Athanasius of modern times.
