Prayer Campaign for Priests
We would like to encourage everyone in the Resistance, especially the children, to take to heart the need to pray for our priests. Let us rise to the occasion and let us all make a pledge to daily say the Prayer for Priests and to ask God to bless our priests.
“O Jesus, Eternal High Priest, keep Thy priests within the shelter of Thy Sacred Heart where none may harm them.
Keep unstained their anointed hands which daily touch Thy Sacred Body. Keep pure their lips, daily purpled by Thy Precious Blood.
Keep pure and unworldly their hearts, sealed with the sublime mark of Thy glorious priesthood.
May they grow in love and confidence in Thee, and protect them from the contagion of the world.
With the power of changing bread and wine, grant them also the power of changing hearts.
Bless their labours with abundant fruit and grant them at the last the crown of eternal life.
O Lord grant us priests,
O Lord grant us holy priests,
O Lord grant us many holy priests
O Lord grant us many holy religious vocations. St. Pius X, pray for us.”
Please send your prayer pledges to the Recusant and let us flood Heaven with our prayers.
Please make a special effort to encourage everyone who attends the Resistance Masses to make this pledge.

The cockle constantly cackle,
cursing whom they may.
The cockle render judgement,
damning whom they may.
The cockle sow contempt,
dividing whom they may.
The cockle hear their father,
Satan, whom they obey.

It was once announced that the devil was going out of business and would offer all tools for sale to whoever would pay his price.
On the night of the sale they were all attractively displayed, a bad looking lot. Malice, Hatred, Envy, Jealousy, Sensuality, and Deceit, and all the other implements of evil were spread out, each marked with its price.
Apart from the rest lay a harmless looking wedge-shaped tool, much worn and priced higher than any of them. Someone asked the devil what it was.
“That’s Discouragement,” was the reply.
“Why do you have it priced so high?”
“Because,” replied the devil, “it is more useful to me than any of the others. I can pry open and get inside a man’s conscience with that when I could not get near him with any of the others, and when once inside I can use him in whatever way suites me best. It is so much worn because I use it with nearly everybody, as very few people yet know it belongs to me.”
It hardly need be added that the devil’s price for Discouragement was so high that it was never sold. He still owns it and is still using it.

O LORD JESUS CHRIST, who showest forth thy omnipotence most manifestly when Thou sparest and hast compassion; Thou who didst say, “Pray for those who persecute and calumniate you,” we implore the clemency of thy Sacred Heart on behalf of souls, made in the image of GOD, but most miserably deceived by the treacherous snares of Freemasons, and going more and more astray in the way of perdition. Let not the Church, thy spouse, any longer be oppressed by them; but, appeased by the intercession of the blessed Virgin thy Mother and the prayers of the just, be mindful of thy infinite mercy; and, disregarding their perversity, cause these very men to return to Thee, that they may bring consolation to the Church by a most abundant penance, make reparation for their misdeeds, and secure for themselves a glorious eternity; who livest and reignest world without end. Amen.

A Spiritual Bouquet of Actions
for the Resistance in General
and for Bishop Williamson in Particular
We would like to propose a spiritual bouquet for the constancy and growth of the Resistance in general and for Bishop Richard Williamson in particular. This spiritual bouquet will consist not solely of prayers, though, nor will it have a definite end. It will consist of all the posts we put up on the Christ the King Youth Project, and it will be a perpetual bouquet. We propose that we make a special offering to God of everything that we post–be it a prayer, picture, drawing, painting, article, photo, composition, etc.
We are taking this idea from the words of the Morning Offering prayers, for example, those of the Fatima Morning Offering Prayer (emphasis added):
“O JESUS, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer Thee my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings, all that this day may bring, be they good or bad: for the love of God, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for all the sins committed against the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”
Everyone–from little children to great, great, great grand-parents–is welcome to participate in this Spiritual Bouquet!
Periodically, we will send the link to the Christ the King Youth Project to His Excellency and to Fathers Pfeiffer and Hewko and other priests of the Resistance.
Those interested in contributing may email their items to:
Two excellent articles by the Dominican Fathers of Avrille:
Revolutions are part and parcel of our human existence. Ever since the very first Revolution in the Garden of Eden – the first turning away from God – every human being must either choose or reject God. All subsequent Revolutions are merely variations of mankind turning away from God.
And because God instituted the Roman Catholic Church to be the ark of salvation for mankind, the goal of the Revolution right from the beginning has been to destroy the Church. And in order to destroy the Church, Christendom had to be wiped out first. Therefore, beginning with the Protestant Revolution, all Catholic States, one by one, suffered political take-overs and saw the installation of masonically inspired regimes. This goal was completed with the Russian Revolution and the death of the last Emperor, Charles I of Austria.
But God never leaves us orphaned and always provides remedies. God uses human instruments – prophets and saints – to turn us back to God.
History is replete with examples of how God used human instruments to perform marvelous restorations. For example, God provided Moses when the Jews were about to turn to the worship of the false gods. Later on, when charity waxed cold, God sent the Poverello to bring the love of God to the sick and the weary. Later again, when atheism was taking over the world, God provided the Curé d’Ars to restore the Faith of the people.
In the 1960’s, the Revolution was finally ready to destroy the Church. But instead of destroying the Church (the gates of hell will not prevail), all that the Revolution achieved was the creation of a false conciliar structure (with new theology, new mass, new canon law, new devotions) that would ape the true Church.
At that time, the remedy was Archbishop Lefebvre.
There is no doubt that God raised the heroic and the uncomplicated Archbishop Lefebvre to protect the people and to guide them through the Vatican II Revolution. The Archbishop kept the Faith when most of the clergy fell into the conciliar apostasy. He patiently and clearly explained the errors of the conciliar new theology, explaining to the people why they must stay away from the new mass (including the Indult mass). He was uncomplicated in that he did not give in to heretical or schismatic musings. Like the Curé d’Ars, the Archbishop was saintly because he kept the complete Deposit of Faith and passed it on to the next generation.
Today the Archbishop would be consistent and would once again tell us to stay away from all groups (including the SSPX) – however traditional they may appear – who seek recognition/regularization with the conciliar structure. The Archbishop would explain that priests who accept any part of Vatican II new theology run the risk of falling into apostasy and breaking with the Church of All Time. In his simple and clear words, the Archbishop, like the Curé, the Poverello, and Moses, would tell us to keep the Faith of our fathers.
But the Revolution goes on: Vatican II is not over. The heresies of the conciliar structure are multiplying. The Master of the Revolution – the mass Manipulator – uses all modern means – and there are plenty!! – to fuel the mass hysteria. The goal is, needless to say, to destroy the Faith that still remains and to send people to the illusory consolation of Quietism (the pray-only cop-out), the SV (the emotional bail-out), the Indult (the NO with Latin accent)….
This time, however, the Master of the Revolution has overstepped himself. It is one thing to take on the world (he is, after all, the Prince of this world); it is altogether another to take on the Bride of Christ, the Holy Roman Catholic Church. And because God has always used human instruments and because He gave us His promise in Genesis (which He reiterated throughout history), we can expect an extraordinary remedy.
This time, the remedy will be the Saint of All Saints and the Mother of All Saints and the Queen of All Saints.
This time, it will be the Woman who will put the Revolution to shame!
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!
