Advice to the SSPX: Stand firm to the traditions and declare once and for all the inevitable: Ratzinger is no Catholic!
- Credible Poll reveals that 79% of Catholics believe there is salvation OUTSIDE the Church. How little they really know.
The bitter anti-Catholic George Carlin was born and baptized a Catholic in 1937, but renounced it in his rebellious years and died outside the Church in this past weekend. Do you think he understood our Lord's words in St. Mark 8: 36?
"For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" (St. Mark 8: 36)

Catholics need to understand the serious consequences of the heresy of Feeneyism for it was no mere slap on the wrist His Holiness Pope Pius XII administered on February 13, 1953, but the dreaded decree of excommunication when it still carried weight.
In our Contra haereses Feeneyism, we want to provide more background on the Jesuit priest Father Leonard Feeney and the cult of Saint Benedict Center in the Boston Archdiocese. Therefore to assuage the controversy over the whole Feeneyism issue, we turn to what holy Mother Church decreed when the Holy See was still Catholic and under the protection of God's graces by republishing the severe warnings and final decree of excommunication. Keep in mind Fr. Feeney had four years to respond and did not provide sufficient proof to stave off certain excommunication. Thus, we republish the Official Decrees confirming that Rome has spoken, the subject is finished. Herein is proof of the licit and valid Excommunication of Fr. Leonard Feeney, S.J. for his stubborn persistence to the heresy of Baptism by water only which you will find in our Reality Check feature,Roma locuta est, Causa finita est
Oh, what the early martyrs endured rather than offending God. Today's Catholics have so much to learn from their example and stand firm against the collapsing counterfeit church of conciliarism which has caved to the world, the flesh and the devil.
Though St. Felicitas' feast is later this year, today we remember her seven sons who were put to death for the Faith, about the year 162, under Marcus Aurelius. The sons preceded their mother to Heaven; she followed them four months afterwards. In order to strike terror into the hearts of the Christians the death sentences were not all carried out in the same place, for Januarius was beaten to death with leaden scourges and was buried in the Cemetery of Prætextatus. Felix and Philip died under the whip and received burial in that of Priscilla. Silanus was thrown from a precipice and was interred with his mother in the Cemetery of Maximus. Alexander, Vitalis and Martial were beheaded and were given the honor of sepultare in the Cemetery of the Giordani. 100 years later two sisters St. Rufina and St. Secunda, rather than lose their consecrated virginity accepted martyrdom. The forest in which they were put to death, hitherto called the dark wood, soon was called the bright wood in their honor. For more, see Seven Brothers and Two Sisters
Sancta Maria, Regina Pacis, ora pro nobis.
Traditionally ever since July 9, 1906 when Pope Saint Pius X gave his papal approval for the Litany to the Blessed Mother as Our Lady Queen of Peace in the Chapel of the Motherhouse of the Sisters of the Sacred Heart this devotion has spread and now in 2008 it is as urgent as ever to pray for peace - the peace only her divine Son Jesus can provide, not man or temporal organizations such as the U.N. or any secular government. That is the reason there can be no peace today because the world has forgotten Christ and forsaken His role as our Sovereign King - our only Sovereign King! We can see the effects of this turmoil because of that as satan assaults every soul from Europe to Iraq to Afghanistan to Hollywood to modern Rome and everywhere in between, and with our soldiers enmeshed in a war with infidels in the Middle East and sodomy being elevated to a virtue where anyone speaking against it must be subjected to 'sensitivity training' because the sinner is offended and courts mandating sin now, we had better pray that God will stay His hand for the time of mercy has long passed and we are living on borrowed time - time one would think has only been provided by the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary because of the Rosaries said in reparation. Let us continue those marching orders and pray from the foxholes her holy Litany and the most powerful weapon we have in our possession: her Holy Rosary.
After listening to Father Anthony Cekada's poignant sermon from last Sunday Trads, Why Can't We All Just Get Along? we could just throw up our hands and say 'what's the use, we'll never unite' or we can initiate a major effort to expose and debunk those issues that prevent a unification, such as Feeneyism. With the SSPX in the throes of a chaotic confusion as the Novus Ordo presbyters infiltrate the Society to try to coerce parishioners to go along with the Modernist program and try to force an ultimatum that is, in truth, a ticket for apostasy, it is time to take off the gloves and disprove once and for all such aberrations as Baptism by water only as Father Leonard Feeney erroneously and deliberately taught in defiance of His Holiness Pope Pius XII and the Ordinary, infallible and perennial Magisterium of the Church that it is possible to obtain sanctifying grace and, in that state, salvation through Baptism of Blood as well as through Baptism of Desire, for one can never limit God and we must remember the First Dogma of the Church is, indeed, Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus, but one needs to realize Church doctrine that "the Church" is composed of not only the Church Militant here on earth, but also the Church Suffering in Purgatory and the Church Triumphant in Heaven, thus comprising the Communion of Saints. Monday we presented the second in a comprehensive series by Griff Ruby titled, "The Art of Scholastic Dishonesty" and that's exactly what Feeneyism and those who stubbornly identify themselves as Feeneyites have been: Dishonest. Griff takes them to task, specifically Peter Dimond and his "treatise" that remains the only Marginot line left and which will collapse once Griff completes his masterful operation against the heresies of Feeneyism.
In defending the treasure of the Sacred Deposit of the Faith, one must glean the gems that are presented to verify the authenticity and veracity of what they reflect in the prisms of polemics.
Griff Ruby continues his comprehensive series in which he must do what St. Paul entreats in 2 Timothy 4: 2-5 and to be faithful to the word and what holy Mother Church teaches in accordance with the Apostle's words in Galatians 1: 8-10. In an effort not to mix metaphors, but to mine for the gems the Church has always held sacrosanct as divine truth, we hold a Ruby up to a Dimond to show the obvious imperfections in the latter's seemingly brilliant refractions of promoting Feeneyism. However, when looking closer one can see the gaps in the quartz that make its claim to being reliable totally bogus and extremely harmful to the investment of souls. The Extra Ecclesiae Nulla Salus dogmatic argument stands true as always, but the denial of Baptism of Blood and Baptism of Desire holds no light in the spectrum of the Communion of Saints and, does, in fact, dull the senses and leads to grave error and a serious detriment to unity within the Traditional Catholic movement. To understand how an omission can easily be a commission of error, see Part Two Ellipses can Eclipse Ecclesial Intent
The Fallibility of Father Feeney and his 'Feeneyites' is in full view how they failed to hold fast to tradition and Catholic truth in interpreting for themselves what they think and not what holy Mother Church has consistently upheld on Baptism of Blood and Baptism of Desire.
On this first day of July we bring you a letter written by Father Martin Stepanich, O.F.M., S.T.D., the esteemed elder statesman and theologian of the true Church and dauntless pioneer for Catholic truth. First run in the Four Marks it is now available at christorchaos.com for all to read. In it Fr. Martin takes no prisoners and well he shouldn't for there is no one living today who defended the Church teaching against Feeney and his cockeyed and dangerous conclusions than this noble traditional Franciscan. In order to educate all, including the misguided band of stubborn followers, he has released this powerful letter, concluding that "The Church’s teaching on Baptism of Desire and Baptism of Blood, as already repeatedly made clear in this letter, is the teaching of the Ordinary Magisterium of the Church, of which it is true to say according to Pope Pius XII, 'He who hears you, hears me.' If that is not good enough for the difficult Feeneyites, and if some of them insist that there must be a special solemn declaration on Baptism of Desire and Baptism of Blood by the Supreme Authority of the Church, that could very easily come when we once again have a true Catholic pope on the Chair of Peter. And you can be sure that the Feeneyites will not be comfortable in hearing an anathema pronounced against them." For the full letter, see
The "UnBaptized Saints" Deception
When words are omitted or added they can alter the entire message. This has been a favorite trick of satan for eons, especially with the diverse and intentional interpretations forged by multi-thousands of Protestant sects.
Griff Ruby begins a comprehensive series in which he must do what St. Paul entreats in 2 Timothy 4: 2-5 and to be faithful to the word and what holy Mother Church teaches in accordance with the Apostle's words in Galatians 1: 8-10. They say sticks and stones can break bones, but names will never hurt, however words can hurt souls when they are deceived and it has been done for ages by those who are hellbent on cramming square pegs into round holes. It is how the Arian heresy gained such prominence; how Luther altered Christian belief to apostasize from the true Church and take billions since with him; how one side has forced their ideology on others by twisting words and meaning to indicate something totally different than the authority conveying said words intended. This intentional twisting is done all the time and it is wrong. With that in mind, this first installment in this series "The Art of Scholastic Dishonesty" revs up with some obvious dishonesty in Sacred Scripture that has resulted in a chaotic array of over 34,000 sects that have apostasized from Christ's True Church. Griff deciphers the differences and how one can tell so clearly what is true and what is slanted to deceive as he points out in installment one, Word Twisting to Change the Meaning
Each time we worthily assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in person, we gain graces that are placed in a "golden chalice", so to speak, and is offered to God to be weighed in substance when we stand before Him at our Particular Judgment. The more we have filled this chalice, the better will it go for our spiritual welfare in eternity.
In this time of Epikeia when the true Church is in eclipse and so few true Masses available, when we pray the Mass prayers and make a spiritual act of Communion at home, graces are also received and placed in a "silver chalice", as it were, which, of course, is not as valuable as the gold one, yet is efficacious when the time comes to make an accounting for our lives.
