“We not only experience a kind of suffering; it is also a feeling of indignation that we feel when we see pagan ceremonies taking place in the presence of the Holy Father in the Vatican Gardens. It is the same indignation we felt when we saw Saint Peter’s Basilica desecrated by the images that were projected on its facade on December 8, 2015.
They accuse us of being enemies of Pope Francis, but this accusation is meaningless. We are neither enemies nor friends of Pope Francis. We are, and we wish to be, friends of truth and goodness, enemies of error and evil, friends of the Church’s friends and enemies of the Church’s enemies.
They accuse us of wanting to break the unity of the Church, but there can be no unity without truth. The Church is one, because she is unique, fashioned in the image of Christ, who is the same yesterday, today and forever. In his likeness, the nature of the Church must remain identical until the end of the world, for as St. Paul says, “There is only one Lord, one faith, one baptism, on God and Father of us all” (Eph 4:5).
I speak as a layman, on behalf of many laymen. The laity do not have the authority to teach anyone the Church’s doctrine, because they do not belong to the teaching Church. But they have the right and duty, which canon law accords them, to preserve, transmit and defend the faith they received at their Baptism.
As a simple layman, spiritually united with the successors of the Apostles present here, I believe I can say: Today we are the voice of Tradition, which is asking the Pope to be heard. Our voice transmits a teaching that comes from afar and it asks the Pope to listen with no less attention than he reserves for the so-called “ancestral wisdom” of the indigenous peoples. We too are the echo of an ancestral wisdom, an ancient wisdom that dates back to Jesus Christ, Incarnate Wisdom.
A wisdom, writes Saint Louis Marie Grignion of Montfort in his inspired work, L’amour de la sagesse eternelle, which is summed up in these words: Verbum caro factum est: “The Word became flesh, eternal Wisdom became incarnate, God became man without ceasing to be God: the Man-God’s name is Jesus Christ, that is, Savior.”[11]How relevant are these words of the great French saint!
Let us regard with deep gratitude those men of the Church, such as Cardinal Burke and Bishop Schneider, who by their voices bear witness to Incarnate Wisdom. Every time they break the silence, our gratitude for them increases and our supernatural hope that other cardinals and bishops will soon join them increases. The book-interview with Bishop Schneider is a precious help in maintaining hope, but also balance, in these difficult hours.”

Reporting from Rome, Michael J. Matt breaks down the nature and extent of Catholic resistance right from the Pope’s own doorstep.

In the shadow of St. Peter’s, several groups of Catholic faithful are organizing full-on demonstrations of principled resistance to the pontificate of Pope Francis and the upcoming Pan-Amazon Synod.

Is this how it ends? Will the Amazon Synod become known to history as the Great Amazon Schism that represented the final culmination of the Modernist Revolution in the Church?

Includes exciting footage from the Acies Ordinata demonstration!

8. In par. 8 it is said that the faithful should accept the decision of their pastors. What does that mean? That they do not have the individual freedom to choose? Mustn’t their conscience be respected?
When brothers from China ask me what to do, I have always given the answer: respect the choices of others and to remain firm in the conviction of one’s conscience. This is because I have no authority to impose my views on others about what is right or wrong. But doesn’t the Holy See have the authority and therefore the duty to clarify precisely this to the members of the Church? Are the Pastoral Guidelines doing that?

“The following quotations from the Church Fathers give the straight story. They show that the early Church held the same position on this as the contemporary Church does—that is, whereas it is normatively necessary to be a Catholic to be saved (see CCC 846; Vatican II, Lumen Gentium 14), it is possible in some circumstances for people to be saved who have not been fully initiated into the Catholic Church (CCC 847).
Notice that the same Fathers who declare the normative necessity of being Catholic also declare the possibility of salvation for some who are not Catholics.
These can be saved by what later came to be known as “baptism of blood” or ” baptism of desire” (for more on this subject, see the Fathers Know Best tract, The Necessity of Baptism).”

Pope-Pius-X-1905

NOTE:  “The Catechism of the Council of Trent was directed to all priests. The recently released Catechism of the Catholic Church was directed to all bishops. The Catechism of Pope St. Pius X is that pope’s partial realization of a simple, plain, brief, popular Catechism for uniform use throughout the whole world. In other words it is directed to the layman . It was used in the ecclesiastical province of Rome and for some years in other parts of Italy. It was not, however, prescribed for use throughout the universal church.” (I bought this Catechism from Amazon. This is their statement in the description. I thought it appropriate to have this statement for further knowledge of said book.)
