Dr. John Smythe, The questions you raise on the canonical status of the SSPX only ensure and prove the fact that the SSPX does not possess a canonical status in the Church. The SSPX has held strong to its reservations in the area of obedience to the doctrinal authority of the Pope and to the authority of the Second Vatican Council. This being so, the Supreme Pontiff Benedict XVI said, “As long as the Society does not have a canonical status in the Church, its ministers do not exercise … [More]

Yesterday, His Holiness Pope Francis, though his own disposition, established during the Holy Year of Mercy that those faithful who for various reasons approach “priest of the SSPX to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation shall validly and licitly receive absolution of their sins,” and so we see and may remain confident in the goodwill that comes from the Vicar of Christ for the SSPX; and from the example of Pope Francis we faithful must pray for goodwill and for unity in the Church, not … [More]

Vicars of Christ, His Holiness John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and Pope Francis have all exhausted many long and legal arguments to unite the SSPX with the Vicar of Christ. His Holiness Benedict XVI made it a priority, even having to deal with then Bishop Williamson; these efforts for unity with the SSPX go back to 1970; when Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre established the SSPX in Switzerland; talks have always collapsed, Fellay refuses to accept the complete doctrine of the Catholic Church, and after … [More]

The Successors of Peter, His Holiness John Paul II and Benedict XVI exerted themselves to a great extent to ensure the full communion with the Church of the SSPX; and their exhausted efforts were to no avail. The SSPX behaved superficial in their reconciliation process and have not fulfilled the grave duty of remaining united to the Vicar of Christ; in fact as time goes by, 30 years, the SSPX have only become more emboldened in their error.
Yet, rightly has the distinction been made here betwee… [More]

This SSPX priest is clearly of a schismatic mentality; and takes no care to avoid and free himself from his heresy, he seems anxious to deter right minded Christians from their Sunday obligation. This being so, what wonder is it if we see today the constant fracturing of the One True Church. without doubt, this SSPX priest is deserving of admonition here, and rightly so, for he shows no true love for the Bride of Christ.
Gregory         Monday, 02:26
I am happy to inform that John Paul II established The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter; thankfully, and the FSSP are attached to the Traditional Roman Rite, the Tridentine Mass. Also, you can thank the Supreme Pontiff Benedict XVI for the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum, not the SSPX.
Also, It is impossible for the SSPX to remain faithful to the Tridentine Mass while breaking the ecclesial bond with the Pope, the Successor to the Apostle Peter. The Holy See decides the question regarding the … [More]

The devil makes strenuous efforts to deter the faithful from receiving grace on Sundays; and the SSPX are exerting themselves in like manner by inspiring the faithful with indifference and aversion towards the Mass; they wound the Bride of Christ, the Catholic Church, and they wound Christ Himself with this heresy…

Of course the SSPX is not Catholic, as Fellay is not a Catholic Bishop, Willianson is not a Catholic Bishop either, as a Bishop is only Catholic when he is in full communion with the Pope, the Successor of Peter, which Fellay and Williamson clearly are not. Moreover, the Catholic Church does not excommunicate Her heroes.

Rarely are matters so clear; Dr Stuart Reiss is the Catholic and Dr. John Smythe, like the SSPX, is counterfeit; like false, worthless money put into circulation in the place of the pure gold of truth. The SSPX have only fractured the Catholic Church once more, and have been the reason for other fractures as well.

Tragic: Unquestionably some priest are not called by God! They force their way into a sheepfold and are too weak for the duties of the priesthood. Our Lord compares such persons to thieves (John 10).
The Church is all Holy through Mary; Pray the Rosary every day.

Christ invites us to receive Holy Communion (John 6:54), and the Saints have always advocated frequent communion, and it has been urged on the faithful repeatedly by the Holy See; yet we must only approach the Holy Eucharist with a clean heart and soul and in a state of Grace. All that is absolutely required for the worthy reception of Holy Communion is to be in a state of Grace.

It is a mistake for the Black Hermits to suppose, owing to Brother Damon Kelly's shocking rudeness, that they could perform this task of protesting abortion in such a careless manner. One can be quite willing to admit to the merits of protesting abortion, yet even that must be done thoughtfully and prayerfully with genuine zeal to God. Brother Kelly’s labor presupposes labor of another kind, that of the disobedient and proud; and for that reason he labors in vain, he fails utterly to touch … [More]

The Black Hermits are not making a good or useful example in their diocese; being arrested 10 times would not lead others to frequent the sacraments, to pray, or to take part in any religious exercises. By their behavior they seem to be living more in the world than in prayer; upon a little reflection this should be apparent to all. The Bishop is trying to keep a high standard of faith and morals in the diocese and the Black Hermits are the reason and cause for religious decadence. Rarely are … [More]

It sounds as if someone has not been playing well with the authorities and has been practicing disobedience. In the fourth commandment of God we should honor our parents; and by that commandment it is our duty to have the same regard for our ecclesiastical and secular authorities.
One of the Black Hermits, Brother Damon Kelly, has been arrested 10 times; which fully proves that he is not fulfilling the commands of his secular superiors; perhaps, in like manner, Brother Damon Kelly did not … [More]

The judgment of particular individuals is left to the God Who searches hearts (Ps. 7:10). The Church makes no declaration as to who is saved, but states only what is necessary for salvation. The Catholic Church is the true way to salvation; in that way it differs and is distinct from heretical churches, which have a roundabout way. St. Peter said: “In every nation he that feareth God and worketh justice is acceptable to Him” (Acts 10:35).

The Catholic Church and the Catholic have always been hated and under persecution. During the first three centuries of the Church there were ten persecutions. We remain hated and persecuted today; by the world, by Islam, Heretics, Protestants, and by those dividing our Lord's fold calling themselves traditional Catholics, Liberal Catholics, and Neo Catholics. Yet, the Catholic Church is indestructible; for Christ said: “The gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matt. 15:18).

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the head of the Democratic National Committee, fully proves her great aversion for the life of the innocent unborn child. The mere thought that she has that “killing a 7-pound baby is not only okay, it is an expression of personal liberty;” also fully proves that she is under the yoke of the father of lies; she steadfastly serves him and easily deceives many for him. Who else could be so foolish as to exert herself to think so sinful?

Only the fool says in his heart: there is no God (Ps.13:1). Richard Dawkins bold talk means very little; God will take atheist at their word one day and will show Himself no loving God for them.
Our Lord says that “seeing they perceive not, and hearing they do not understand” (Mark 4:12).

On Holy Thursday evening Christ Our Lord washed the feet of His apostles to teach us humility; and since the time of Gregory the Great, the Pope has kept the practice of washing the feet of twelve priest; the bishops washing the feet of twelve men.

The devil seems to have gained special powers over so many Islamic men; maybe over Islam. The devil here shows how feeble he is, using a crowd to violently assault and attack a helpless, innocent woman. Yet, the devil has no power over this woman’s soul; great protection will be afforded to her soul by almighty God, for she endured great violence from the devil. It is troubling to see these occurrences taking place so often, as if the devil has an obsession with Islamic men and even Islam; and … [More]

The whole of the Mass is a sacrifice, not an instruction for the people. The Church should be explaining the mysteries and ceremonies of the Mass from the pulpit more frequently, teaching the Catechism, and explaining the Catholic religion. But as a matter of fact, the priests have not, and might as well be speaking Latin from the pulpit, for the people are living in ignorance of the Catholic faith. The use of Latin does not prevent this ignorance but it does add to the element of mystery; it … [More]

Lindsaywtf, Thank you once more, any right minded Catholic can easily and clearly understand Ivereigh's account, yet it takes great pains for those of a schismatic mentality and for those who cannot overcome themselves through confession to accept truth and they will only be indulgent to error; only the unfathomable mercy of God can free them.

What exertions these spiritual prisoners make to attack the Head of the Church; they are ever so indulgent to tell lies, tell half-truths, and to ridicule the Vicar of Christ, Pope Francis. Surely they are not of the Kingdom of God and only the unfathomable mercy of God can free them.

Lindsaywtf, I cannot say enough in praise of your excellent and wise discourse on this Catholic forum and to see how steadfastly you are inclined to the defense of the Holy Father, the Church, and Truth; doing so in a manner that fully proves your faith is practiced and keen. Experience here proves that some Catholic’s put Protestants to shame when it comes to ridiculing the Holy Father; it is great to see truth always effectually suppress their terrible vice and their aversion to the Holy … [More]

Honored and proud to see so many dignified world leaders joined in such extraordinary unity after the acts of terror in France; and ashamed of American Leaders, the Obama administration, for their careless and poor reception to the people of France; giving way to excuses, and following their own inclination, waiting for a favorable political wind to blow. The American people expect more and require more of our Leaders and deeply regret that they failed to act with promptitude and influence to … [More]

BrAlexisBugnolo, Shouldn’t you be taking the example of the Saints; for no Saint ever acted cowardly or held such contempt for the Holy Father; not only that, but there is really no example worse or more wicked than a bad religious. A cursory review of your writings reflect clearly the repute you hold for the Holy Father, Pope Francis. Even in the secular world one would be held severely liable for undermining the authority of his superior; your writings are an act of injustice to the Holy … [More]

St. Gregory the Great says, “the Magi returned to their homes by another way, to show us that if we wish to reach our true home in paradise we must forsake the path in which we have walked, and tread in the way of penance, obedience, and self denial.”
Gregory         24/12/2014 19:37
The three Wise Men would have never found Christ if they had not been led by the star of Bethlehem (Matt.2:9). The Magi offered the new born Child, Jesus, presents. Gold, the symbol of homage, is offered to Him as King; incense, the symbol of prayer, because He is God; and myrrh, the symbol of mortification, because as Our Redeemer, He was to suffer.

St. Augustine says, A great Physician came down from heaven to heal a great disease on earth; He healed in a way hitherto unheard of, for He took our ills on Himself. St. Jerome says, He is born in a stable, because the earth in comparison of heaven is but a stable.
