Catholic Church Teaching on Heresy in the Church

Catholic Church Teaching on Heresy in the Church

“Pretend the magisterium has not spoken“, and the “Elevation of hetero-praxis over doctrine” – a new approach of action that conflicts with the perennial magisterium, – are two principal modernist tactics of the Conciliar revolution. Below is a clear guide (and reminder) of the “Catholic Church Teaching on Heresy in the Church”, and the “Catholic Church Teaching on Heresy and the Pope”. To begin with,  let us state that the theological authority of St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) is unsurpassed in the Catholic Church. The teaching of the Angelic Doctor is also the perfect antidote to Modernism. While paying lipservice to him, today’s[…]

Roman Rite Mass

“The Destruction of Traditional Roman Rite”, By Michael Davies

Michael Davies is most known for his work on the liturgical revolution. He summarizes how the movement for liturgical reform transmuted into the monster that it became, and then used Vatican II, the organs established to effect the reforms of Vatican II, and the “spirit of the Council” to create the new liturgy. During the first session of the Second Vatican Council, in the debate on the Liturgy Constitution, Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani asked: “Are these Fathers planning a revolution?” The Cardinal was old and partly blind. He spoke from the heart without a text about a subject which moved him[…]

Vatican I Council Dogmatic Canons Decrees

Dogmatic Canons and Decrees of the Council of Trent, Vatican Council I, Plus the Decree on the Immaculate Conception and the Syllabus of Errors

Find out what exactly what the Church teaches on Original Sin, Grace, each Sacrament, the Mass, Purgatory, statues, indulgences, etc. These canons are infallible and absolutely unchangeable. The canons and decrees of Vatican Council I define papal infallibility. The Syllabus, written in 1861, is astonishingly contemporary and a revelation to most Catholics. It clearly enunciates 80 modern errors. Dogmatic Canons and Decrees: authorized translations of the dogmatic decrees of the Council of Trent (1545-1563), the Decree on the Immaculate Conception, the Syllabus of Pope Pius IX (1846-1878), and the decrees of the First Vatican Council I (1869-1870) PREFACE ENGLISH versions[…]

Man's Mortality by Saint Cyprian

A Sermon on Man’s Mortality by Saint Cyprian

Let us banish the fear of death and think of the eternal life that follows it … From a sermon on man’s mortality by Saint Cyprian, bishop and martyr (Cap 18:24, 26: CSEL 3, 308, 312-314).  Our obligation is to do God’s will, and not our own. We must remember this if the prayer that our Lord commanded us to say daily is to have any meaning on our lips. How unreasonable it is to pray that God’s will be done, and then not promptly obey it when he calls us from this world! Instead, we struggle and resist like[…]

St Charles Borromeo

The Difference Between True and False Reformers

Editae Saepe is an encyclical letter of Pope Pius X, also called “Borromeo-Encyclical”. It dates from 26 May 1910 and is dedicated to the memory of St. Charles Borromeo (1538-1584) because he considered him as a “model of pastoral zeal”, and the Pope took the opportunity to “denounce modernism” and condemn the Protestant Reformation. Charles Borromeo was archbishop of Milan from 1564 to 1584 and a cardinal. He was a leading figure of the Counter-Reformation combat against the Protestant Reformation, together with St. Ignatius of Loyola and  St. Philip Neri. In that role, he was responsible for significant reforms in[…]

Outside the Church There is No Salvation

“Salus extra Ecclesiam non est”: Outside the Church there is no Salvation

The Latin phrase “Salus extra Ecclesiam non est” means: “outside the Church there is no salvation“. This expression comes from the writings of Saint Cyprian of Carthage (✞ 258), a bishop of the 3rd century. It is a dogma of the Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church, and has been affirmed many times throughout 2000 years of Christianity. Our knowledge of the Truth is precisely what Christ has given to His apostles from the beginning of the Church and faithfully handed down to us by the uncompromising Holy Catholic Church. The language used to express this doctrine has always been[…]

St-Pius X

Pope St. Pius X: “Restore All Things to Christ!”

“We were terrified beyond all else by the disastrous state of human society today. For who can fail to see that society is at the present time, more than in any past age, suffering from a terrible and deeprooted malady which, developing every day and eating into its inmost being, is dragging it to destruction? You understand, Venerable Brethren, what this disease is – apostasy from God, than which in truth nothing is more allied with ruin, according to the word of the Prophet: “For behold they that go far from Thee shall perish” (Ps. 1xxii., 17).” It was written by Pope[…]

Rite of Degradation of a Bishop, or an Archbishop: “Degradatio ab ordine pontificali” by Pope Benedict XIV

“Degradation of a Bishop”  (Degradatio ab ordine pontificali) was released by Pope Benedict XIV on March 25, 1752 in Pontificale Romanum,  and published on July 5, 1873 by Vatican printer Masison H. Dessain of Mechelen Belgium,  and authenticated by the then Primate of Belgium and Archbishop of Mechelen, Victor Cardinal Dechamps. This priceless original, one of the few copies that survived the book’s post – Vatican II destruction, was part of the personal library of the late moderator of the Catholic Traditionalists Movement, Bishop Blaise S. Kurz, and is today securely kept in the CTM’s archives’ building in Westbury, New[…]

Prayers for the Defense of Christian People against Heathen

Prayers for the Defense of the Church and Christian People against Heathen

Some of the richest treasures of the traditional Roman Liturgy are the Votive Masses near the back of the Missal. I was recently reminded of this when assisting at Holy Mass. That day, the celebrant availed himself of his option on a fourth-class feria to offer the Missa votiva pro Ecclesiae defensione (votive Mass for the defense of the Church). The St. Andrew’s Missal I use calls it by the much more “offensive” title, “Mass Against the Heathen.” The propers that go with this Mass are a reminder that the Most Holy Trinity is, even after the Incarnation, the strong[…]

Tridentine Creed in Catholic Tradition: Profession of Faith

Tridentine Creed in Catholic Tradition: Profession of Faith

The “Professio fidei Tridentina”, also known as the “Creed of Pope Pius IV”, is one of the four authoritative Creeds of the Catholic Church. It was issued on November 13, 1565 by Pope Pius IV in his bull “Iniunctum nobis” under the auspices of the Council of Trent (1545 – 1563). It was subsequently modified slightly after the First Vatican Council (1869 – 1870) to bring it inline with the dogmatic definitions of the Council. The major intent of the Creed is to clearly define the Catholic faith against Protestantism. At one time it was used by Theologians as an oath[…]
