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)
A Catechism of the
Social Reign of Christ
After listening to Father Anthony Cekada's poignant sermon a few Sunday's ago 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 took 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. Yesterday we presented the documentation authenticating Feeney's valid and licit excommunication and today we provide a link with caution as to who Feeney was and the cult that continues the anathema to this day.
Had Feeney only relented and repented, he might very well have been remembered for the great things he did rather than the cultish company he kept in Bean town
We all know that were Pope Pius XII physically on the throne in 1965 or today, he would have excommunicated practically the entire hierarchy who advanced the heresies of Vatican II, so much so that the least offender against the Church who was excommunicated by His Holiness would be the Jesuit Fr. Leonard Feeney. Be that as it may, the fact of the matter is well illustrated by Pope Leo XIII in the oft-quoted article 9 from his encyclical Satis Cognitum, "There can be nothing more dangerous than those heretics who admit nearly the whole cycle of doctrine, and yet by one word, as with a drop of poison, infect the real and simple faith taught by our Lord and handed down by Apostolic tradition." So also with Fr. Feeney. He did many, many good things, upheld 98% of Catholic truth and spoke out courageously and with flair when others shied away. He wrote many excellent books, such as "Fish on Friday". For those attributes of course he is to be commended. Sadly, however, by his stubborn refusal to obey a true Pope in spreading the heresy that there could be no Baptism of Blood or Desire, he injected that "drop of poison" and infected the rest of what he stood for. Who was Fr. Feeney? In the interest of balance and to provide one of the more comprehensive accounts of the man and his cult, we point you to the three part biography by Third Order M.I.C.M. John Neumann. Keep in mind that his title is an oxymoron for St. Athanasius never stood against Church teaching. Fr. Feeney, by evidence of his excommunication by a true Pope, did.

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.
Speaking of Pope Pius XII, today there is a commemoration of the very first in the line of Piuse - Pope Saint Pius I, Martyr and great Pope of the Second Century. He is believed by tradition to have established a baptistery in the house of the Pudenti or de Pastore. His brother is the author of the Shepherd of Hernias which has been styled "a vast examination of the conscience of the Roman Church at the end of the first half of the Second Century." To St. Pius is attributed the fixation of the feast of the Resurrection on Sunday, which day then became the central Sunday of the year. He was martyred A.D. 157 and buried on Vatican Hill with his remains later moved to the Vatican proper.

Do we heed Heaven's advice and turn our backs on the world and its lures, no matter the siren that surrounds and beckons us, or do we cave and link up with Mammon to satisfy our instant gratification at the expense of our immortal soul?
To enhance each Sunday's Epistle and Gospel we present this special feature provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. We publish it here in conjunction with the Epistle and Gospel for the Sunday Mass, with the cogent comprehensive Catholic Commentary penned by Father George Leo Haydock because the type size is normally so hard to read and not everyone has access to the Commentary, let alone the authentic Catholic edition of Holy Writ. For the Eighth Sunday after Pentecost and the Feria days this week, the theme is giving an account of one's stewardship, one's responsibilities over those things and duties God has entrusted each with. This means abiding by His laws and not being slaves to the world, the flesh and the devil for to give in to that triumverate of trouble will punch one's almost sure ticket to accommodations with Mammon who is so cunning, especially in the midst of those children of the light who are not on their guard, not tending to their duties and not vigilant to the Holy Ghost's promptings. You can better understand this in the Feria for the Eighth Sunday after Pentecost Haydock Commentary
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
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
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.
