Heroic Canadian Priest, Fr. Yves Normandin, Seriously Ill

Heroic Canadian Priest, Fr. Yves Normandin, Seriously Ill

Father Yves Normandin, from Quebec [is a] pioneer in keeping the traditional Catholic faith alive in Canada, from the beginning.

He used to fly across Canada every Sunday from Montreal, Winnipeg, Regina, Calgary, and finally Vancouver to offer the traditional Latin Mass. He did this for years.

Many of the Mass centres the SSPX [now] has were started by him.

O Sweet Jesus, Eternal High Priest,
look favorably upon Thy priest Father Yves
whom sickness has cast upon a bed of pain.
Draw near to him, lay Thy hand upon him, and heal him by Thy Almighty power.
Restore him to health and vigor so that praising Thee he may be able to continue to labor in promoting Thy greater honor and glory and the salvation of souls.
Amen. read more

Nihil Obstat: F. MOYNIHAN, Censor Theol. Deputatus.

Imprimatur:  D. MANNIX, Archiepiscopus Melbournensis.

The dealings of God with mankind throughout history are a divine romance of condescending love and infinite mercy. This truth is splendidly borne out by the doctrine of Perfect Contrition, if we consider it in its proper setting, namely, by recalling to mind what sin is, what makes its malice, and how the sinner can be reconciled with God read more

Is Nothing Sacred? “New, Improved” Vulgate Promoted

[ to read entire article please click on link, above ]

REMNANT COMMENT: Of course, scripture tampering has been going on for a long time in the post-conciliar Church, revising Scripture being sort of the classic plaything of Modernists everywhere.  Nevertheless, I’d encourage scripture scholars to examine the latest versions of the Catholic Bible being quietly posted over at  read more

A Plea From Nigeria

Posted last week on Facebook by Mr. Fadaluca Ogbonn:

Do you know what? Yobe State in Nigeria has been boiling since Friday. Churches are being burnt, many christians killed.

Please pray and forward to other people of Faith for intercession.

Don’t ignore.

Cry to our God against those Islamic Terrorists. He’ll hear and heal our land, Nigeria!

Cd Burke Calls for Consecration of Russia, Blasts Vatican’s and Other Modernists!

Total Vindication: Cardinal Burke Calls for Consecration of Russia
Written by  Michael Matt | Editor

ROME, May 19, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Cardinal Raymond Burke issued a call this morning for the Catholic faithful to “work for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”

Cardinal Burke, who is one of the four Cardinals who have asked Pope Francis for a clarification of Amoris Laetitia, made his appeal at the Rome Life Forum, in the month of the centenary of Our Lady of Fatima’s first apparition to the three shepherd children. read more

Mundabor on Vatican’s Medj Poppycock and Piffle

Medjugorje And No End Of Deception, Opportunism And Confusion

[ click on link for entire article ]

The news is everywhere so I am sure you will be able to find the links yourselves: the Medjugorje commission has given the most ambiguous, non-answering answer to the scam of Medjugorje, and the CDF has countered with its own, far more critical document.
Alas, the Church of V II appears to have only one commandment: Thou Shall Not Offend.

The commission bent over forward in the most extraordinary way, dividing the apparitions in two groups: the first set of “unannounced” alleged apparitions and the industry of the thousand of alleged apparitions afterwards. In the first case, the majority (but not all, as Church Militant tell us it’s necessary) of the members consider the apparitions supernatural. There is no conclusion of constat de supernaturalitate, because – again, according to what CM reports – for that unanimity would be required. Therefore, even the first apparitions do not pass the test. read more

A PRO-Fatima RABBI ??? A RABBI ???

Rabbi Mayer Schiller (Rabbinic Scholar) on Fatima, its Suppression, and the Consecration of Russia

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
– Hamlet (1.5.167-8)

[Just saw this on and I don’t quite know what to make of it. Anyway, this is rather unusual, to say the least! One wonders if it is the Yiddish version of a Dubia?]

Gloria.TV News on the 15th of May 2017 (video and text):

A Jew: In a May 4th video, American Rabbi Mayer Schiller stated that it is important for mankind as a whole that the Church takes everything that was said in Fatima seriously. Schiller is a Hasidic rabbi based in Monsey, New York. read more

PLAN B: The Fall of the Novus Ordo Seclorum
Written by  Anthony Mazzone

Editor’s Note: There’s nothing sensational about this article…no breaking news, no new & improved papal scandal, no dirty laundry. On the Internet clickbait scale, it’s a 1.  But, please, do yourself a favor — read it. From first paragraph to last, it positively exudes the sensus catholicus. It is filled with hope, and it puts all the scandals of our day into proper perspective — mere footnotes of history, jotted down by someone long after the Novus Ordo has been recalled, the Spirit of Vatican II exorcised, and the traditional liturgies and teachings fully restored to the life of the Church.  Especially if you think this won’t happen anytime soon– please read on.

Pope Pius XII on “Rigidity”. (Yoo hoo, Jorge?)

Pius XII’s Condemnation of Situation Ethics: “Accusations of rigidity first attack the adorable person of Christ”

“Taking, therefore, the words of Christ and of the Apostle [Paul] as the strict rule, should not one say that the Church of today is rather inclined more to coddling than to severity? It so happens that the accusation of oppressive rigidity made against the Church by the ‘new morality,’ in reality, attacks, in the first place, the adorable Person of Christ Himself.” read more

For Cyprian, Reference for “Devil’s Advocate”

This is in response to a PM Cyprian sent requesting papal citations re. the Advocatus Diaboli and its absolute necessity in canonization processes. This is from the Cath. Encyclopedia under the topic, Advocatus Diaboli:

“…Prospero Lamertini, afterwards Pope Benedict XIV (1740-58), was the Promoter of the Faith for twenty years, and had every opportunity to study the workings of the Church in this most important function; he was, therefore, peculiarly qualified to compose his monumental work “On the Beatification and Canonization of Saints,” which contains the complete vindication of the rights of the Church in this matter, and sets forth historically its extreme care of the use of this right. No important act in the process of beatification or canonization is valid unless performed in the presence of the Promoter of the Faith formally recognized. His duty is to protest against the omission of the forms laid down, and to insist upon the consideration of any objection. The first formal mention of such an officer is found in the canonization of St. Lawrence Justinian under Leo X (1513-21). Urban VIII, in 1631, made his presence necessary, at least by deputy, for the validity of any act connected with the process of beatification or canonization.” read more

Pour tous mes amis: for your perusal

This is the diary of Msgr. Joseph Clifford Fenton, STD from the final months leading up to and into the opening of Vatican II. The entire collection is available courtesy of CUA.

It makes for truly fascinating reading.

Monsignor was Cd Ottaviani’s peritus for the preparatory sessions preceding the (un)Council and in its earliest stages. He suffers no fool lightly and is bluntly plain-spoken about the Left throughout his commentary.

One of my favorite comments (paraphrasing here) was that St Pius X was the last great pope and was followed by evermore “tolerant” successors who appointed evermore stupid men as bishops. read more

Weigel, Again – Need I Say More?

[ click on link for entire article… ]

George Weigel and the SPPX by P.J. Smith

George Weigel, in his most recent column, has decided that the Holy See should not offer the Society of St. Pius X a personal prelature. It appears from statements by Archbishop Guido Pozzo, secretary of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, and Bishop Bernard Fellay, superior general of the Society, that a personal prelature is the current offer. More than that, it seems that the Holy See is not insisting on the Society’s submission to every jot and tittle of every document of the Second Vatican Council. This is wonderful news. Many informed commentators noted that the 2012 negotiations between Rome and the Society were torpedoed at the last moment by the sudden insistence of the Roman authorities on such submission. read more
