When one thinks of Andrew Jackson, Our Lady of Prompt Succor and the Ursuline nuns do not spring to mind, but they should.
In 1814 the War of 1812 was going badly for the United States. With the abdication of Napoleon, hordes of British veteran troops were sent across the Atlantic to teach the Yankees a lesson. Continue reading →
What a beautiful way to start off the New Year. This means a lot of events will happen this year. ENJOY.
There were or are some protestant groups who once believed that Jesus did not become God until he was baptized and the Holy Ghost came down upon Him on this day. However these were a minority.
Friday the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Baptism of Our Lord. This brings to an end the season of Christmas. The Church recalls Our Lord’s second manifestation or epiphany which occurred on the occasion of His baptism in the Jordan. Jesus descended into the River to sanctify its waters and to give them the power to beget sons of God. The event takes on the importance of a second creation in which the entire Trinity intervenes.

These Vatican II popes are not manifest heretics as you claim. They are Apostates. Paul VI became a Formal, Public Heretic, Which means ex-cathedra. That is instituting heretical church teaching from a council which contradicts previous councils. “Salvation in other Religions, for ONE.” When Paul VI refuted the complaints of the faithful along with the “Ottaviani Intervention,” on Nov. 19, 1969, he became officially , automatically excommunicated. As a result, Paul the VI became the “Man of Sin.” and brought us into “the Great Apostasy.” All the rest are just in the reign of AntiChrist. The Remnant is in denial of this truth.

Excommunication. A penalty imposed by the Church on a sinner in order to bring about his correction and amendment. It consists of the exclusion of the sinner from the communion of the faithful with certain legal effects, including the loss of his right to assist at divine services, exclusion from all the sacraments, Continue reading →
As Catholics we should be trying to exercise charity whenever we voice our opinions on issues, especially those that pertain to matters of faith. Most traditionalists seem to be in agreement that we appear to be living in “The Great Apostasy” (Schism) spoken of by St. Paul in II Thess. II. However, most seem to be unaware that confusion among the faithful is one of the main signs of this apostasy. Continue reading →
Whenever God uses Mother Nature to promote His wrath, earthquakes are His highest Anger and the truth is that God has been warning the world since the close of the Vatican II Council changed the Faith. Francis has been putting salt into the wound by mocking True Catholics by his recent scandalous behavior and so God’s voice has been hitting closer to home. So Radio Maria has it right but not for all the right reasons. Matt.27:51 Continue reading →
This Encyclical condemns The new ordination rites and the new mass.
In Perpetual Remembrance
1. We have dedicated to the welfare of the noble English nation no small portion of the Apostolic care and charity by which, helped by His grace, we endeavor to fulfill the office and follow in the footsteps of “the Great Pastor of the sheep,” Our Lord Jesus Christ. Continue reading →
Restitution is one of the least understood, yet most important, Bible teachings. This important principle is taught in both the Old and New Testaments. Yet today in the Church of God, it is commonly taught that “When a person repents and is baptized, his sins are forgiven. Therefore, he is not required to perform any restitution at all.” This is an abysmal lack of understanding of what repentance is, and of the guiding influence of the Almighty’s Holy Spirit. Let us examine the Bible teaching of restitution, and see how those truly repentant responded to the leading of the Spirit. Continue reading →
Second Epistle Of Saint Paul To The Corinthians Chapter 4: 1-18
 Therefore, seeing we have this ministration, according as we have obtained mercy, we faint not;  But we renounce the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor adulterating the word of God; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’ s conscience, in the sight of God.  And if our gospel be also hid, it is hid to them that are lost,  In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of unbelievers, that the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not shine unto them.  For we preach not ourselves, but Jesus Christ our Lord; and ourselves your servants through Jesus. Continue reading →
To begin with, this is one of many Paradoxes we have in the Bible. To quote Apocalypse 3:3, “If then thou shalt not watch, I will come as a thief and thou shalt not know at what hour I will come to thee.”:
Jesus also implies that the Father knows and because of the nature of this message it’s to be shared together with all three persons of the Trinity as they do beginning with the First chapter in the book of Revelation.1:10. Here we have the obvious, as St. John was witnessing the Second Coming of Christ he acknowledge it was on the Lord’s Day. Continue reading →
For those of you who are not aware of my role as a Traditional Catholic for the last 48 years.
Briefly: In the old testament we had High Priests and Prophets.The High Priest would speak for God on matters of faith and the Church. Prophets were called upon to keep everyone in line or not living up to their responsibilities,so in this sense you have Two people speaking in the place of God. Continue reading →
It is sinful to slander or attack a Pope even if he be a Heretic Pope. My reply to these complainers is: Why do they accept him as pope while rejecting his authority? They are one and the same! Pre-Vatican II they would have been told to submit or incur excommunication. It’s because they want him to be pope and not be pope, not because they have a Catholic spirit or faith but because they feel they can say whatever they want and rebel with out a true and factual explanation. Continue reading →
In noticing a sign in a vacuum cleaner repair shop which said, “The vacuum created by a failure to communicate will quickly filled with rumor, misrepresentation, drivel, and poison.” From this I began to identify the four main problems which affect church members.
The first problem which most of us would agree on, of course, is the heresies which resulted because of the Vatican II Council. From this traditionalist have a common goal: To preserve and keep the faith in tact. Continue reading →
What Father Hughes means is that, if your honest and have a love of the truth prayer will become the key to Heaven. God does not hear the prayers of hypocrites. Also what helps give strength to prayer is fasting and good spiritual readings like your daily Missal. John 9:31 now we that God does not hear sinners. but if anyone is a worshiper of God, and does his will, him he hears.
