       "My soul is restless, Lord, till it rests in Thee."    Saint Augustine

    Month of the Communion of Saints
                                                                 
    Church Triumphant and Church Suffering and Church Militant

       November is the month we commemorate the meaning of the Communion of Saints when we observe All Saints and All Souls. God has created a cycle which guarantees a 'win-win' situation. We as the Church Militant here on earth offer Prayer and Praise to the Church Triumphant in Heaven in return for Intercession and Graces. In turn we offer Suffrages and Indulgences for the Poor Souls in Purgatory who comprise the Church Suffering and they offer Prayer and Gratitude, given Intercession and Relief by the Heavenly Saints. Thus all are members of the Mystical Body of Christ as Paul affirms in Romans 12: 5, "So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one, members one of another." It takes teamwork, all working together for the greater honor and glory of God. Heroic Acts of Charity for the poor souls is one way we can contribute. The rewards are everlasting!

"Qui legit, intelligat"

We are pleased to be able to bring you weekly sermons by Father Louis J. Campbell to assist Traditionalists in their spiritual journey. Above are the sermons for this month available thus far. The title for these Sunday Sermons is taken from Our Lord's most revealing and pertinent words in Matthew 24: vs. 15, "he that readeth, let him understand" - words that have much more significance in these times of grave crisis. Father Louis provides the nourishment from the Gospels so that we can all understand more clearly and respond to God's Holy Will. For past sermons, see Archives of Father's Sermons

When you can't attend the Holy Sacrifice
There are many who, realizing the Novus Ordo is not the fullness of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, cannot attend the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as it was always meant to be said. Therefore, we have gleaned from The Key of Heaven prayers to say at home. It is very comforting to know that the Holy Mass is offered for us even when we are not actually present. But to enjoy the benefits which it procures, we must by a SPIRITUAL COMMUNION become partakers of the altar from which we are temporarily banished. We add here that these prayers never fulfill fully our obligation and privilege to assist at Holy Mass, but serve as a necessary alternative during these times when the eternal sacrifice is being eliminated everywhere. Here we provide prayers in preparation for fulfilling assistance in absentia.
