  • The Society Of ST. PIUS X

    The Society of St. Pius X is an international fraternity of “traditionalist” Catholic priests founded in 1970 by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre (d. 3.25.1991). It boasts of the highest membership of so-called traditional Catholics in the world. In 2022 it claimed over 700 priests and 1,135 total memberships. Many readers of this Column know this, but […]

  • “The Latin Mass needs to be restricted because the theology of the Church has changed.”

    So said ‘Cardinal’ Arthur Roche who is the Novus Ordo Prefect of the Dicastery for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments. He made this statement recently, within the past month or so. As far as I know, a ‘dicastery’ is similar in concept to a ‘congregation.’ Well, the cat is out of the […]

There comes a problem, then, when assessing Vatican II because it “changed” Church teaching on major issues, […]

  • Recognize and Resist Dishonesty I

    The Traditional movement is full of individuals who have taken on what is called the “Recognize & Resist” understanding of the Church. Included on this list are people like “Bishop” Athanasius Schneider, “Archbishop” Carlo Vigano, “Cardinal” Raymond Burke, et al. I put quotes around their titles, because as I have demonstrated in this Column previously, […]

  • Modernity II

    Last time I attempted to describe the difference between the Medieval knowledge of the world, and what took place in Modernity, which represented what might be called the “turn to the subject.” Many religious and cultural commentators understand the crisis of the Modern world to be theological, and perhaps even cultural, whereas the real problem […]

  • Modernity III

    The Kantian Revolution has created gods out of men, as it places the creation of reality in the mind of each individual. This ultimately is the Revolution of Lucifer, who instilled godlike tendencies in humanity ever since he incited Adam and Eve to fall in that infamous garden. Now the serpent was more cunning than […]
