Whatever Happened to Our Catholic Church?

"How was it that a little Catholic girl--born in Italy--became one of the most powerful figures of the American Communist Party at the height of its power during the late 1930's and 1940's?" asks Eleonore Villarubia. [See Eleonore Villarubia, "Bella Dodd--From Communist to Catholic," August 31, 2010.  Source: ].

When Christ spoke of “the garden full of weeds,” He said, "An enemy has done this." Likewise, after her conv…

Christ Has Risen from the Dead!

Christ has risen from the dead!

Christ has risen from the dead...

By His death, He conquered death...

And to those in the grave He bestowed life!

Roman Rite Consecration Prayer

Take and eat this (HOC)   for this is my Body...

Take and drink from this chalice. 

(From hic and thus from HOC my broken Body)

In hic is my salutary Blood of the new and eternal testament (covenant)...the chalice of my Blood, which is shed for you and for many unto the forgiveness of sin.  (Fr. Stedman Sunday M…

Is the greatest salutary Theophany of the Mass (as experienced by Sr. Lucia at her convent in Tuy, Spain in 1929) the key to the Third Secret?  This vision where the words “Misericordia” and “Gratias” were actually spelled out alongside the vision substantiates the exegesis of “gratias” employed in this book. 

The Mass is “gratias” and “misericordia.” “Gratias” means “graces,” not “thanks.”  The first part of the Mass, like unto the Old Dispensation, petit…

Why Did the Son of God Come Down to Earth?

Why did the Son of God [Who is Himself God] come down to earth?

Had Christ come to earth solely to suffer and die at Calvary, in time, He would have been forgotten or become merely an historical figure of a different kind.  Christ Himself indicated He did not want to be merely remembered when He taught His Apostles the words of worship: “Do this into my memory” (spoken at the Consecration of the bread and wine into the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Christ; at every validly executed Mass).…

The Sacred Heart and the Precious Blood of Jesus

What Kind of Catholic Are You?

Only the Catholics of Apostolic tradition refer to the sacred heart and to the precious blood of Jesus. Why? There is this major difference.

From the earliest days, "Protest-tants" denied that the bread and wine, once consecrated by the actions of Christ's validly ordained priest, truly becomes the Body and Blood of Christ, while retaining the appearance of bread and wine.

To deny this truth is to become a heretic. To deny this truth is to Forego Catholici…

Canonized Latin Mass

A Priest for Our Times

Fr. Paul Trinchard was ordained a Jesuit priest on June 7, 1966 by Archbishop Philip M. Hanna in the Archdiocese of New Orleans. He had already graduated from Loyola University with a degree in physics and had been working in the aerospace industry when he answer his call to the priesthood. Thus began his introduction and indoctrination into Rogerianism and liberalism, leading him to become a Novus Ordo priest.

Despite his Latin Rite ordination to “say Mass for the living and the dead” and to …

Fatima Curse?

As Secretary of State before ascending the papal throne as Pope Pius XII, Eugenio Pacelli confided to his friend, Count Galeazzi:

"Suppose, dear friend, that Communism was only the most visible of the instruments of subversion to be used against the Church and the traditions of Divine Revelation....This persistence of Mary about the dangers which menace the Church is a divine warning against the suicide of altering the Faith, in its liturgy, its theology and its soul."
