How Humble Are Traditionalists?

By |2021-06-29T13:00:44+00:00June 29th, 2021|Theology|

For I delivered unto you first of all, which I also received: how that Christ died for our sins, according to the scriptures: And that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day, according to the scriptures: And that He was seen by Cephas; and after that by the eleven.—1 Cor 15:3-5 DRB. The Apostle Paul is writing here that what he delivered over to the early Christians is exactly what he first received (tradidi enim vobis in primis quod et accepi.) And this tradition was not just "small-t tradition," but "Big-T Tradition."  In other words, St. Paul delivered over Divine Revelation to others just as it [...]

“Always is Also a Forever”—Pope Benedict XVI

By |2021-06-27T21:06:21+00:00June 27th, 2021|Theology|

It is a good thing that both Ann Barnhardt and Estefanía Acosta frequently remind us of this decisive clue in unlocking the second greatest crisis in Catholic Church history second only—and linked—to what started in the 1960s: “The ‘always’ is also a ‘forever‘ – there can no longer be a return to the private sphere.  My decision to resign the active exercise of the ministry does not revoke this.  I do not return to private life, to a life of travel, meetings, receptions, conferences, and so on. I am not abandoning the cross, but remaining in a new way at the side of the crucified Lord.  I no longer bear [...]

Life Update 2021.06.26

The Overton Window of Evangelization The Overton Window is described by Wikipedia as "the range of policies politically acceptable to the mainstream population at a given time.  It is also known as the window of discourse. The term is named after American policy analyst Joseph P. Overton, who stated that an idea's political viability depends mainly on whether it falls within this range, rather than on politicians' individual preferences." Notice that the enemies of Christ have changed their strategy the past two years.  What was seen as unthinkable just two years ago is now promoted by the left as not only acceptable but necessary.  For example, "Critical Race Theory" taught [...]

Pope St. Pius X and Joe Biden

By |2021-06-24T13:25:23+00:00June 24th, 2021|Theology|

The current contention on the pro-abortion unelected-President Joe Biden receiving Holy Communion is a late outgrowth in the debate between traditionalists and modernists on issues of dogma vs. conscience and Church vs. State. Pope St. Pius X saw all of this mayhem coming when he warned against those modernist political Catholics in Pascendi Dominici Gregis over 100 years ago. Pascendi, as it is now known, was an encyclical released by Pope St. Pius X on the 8th of September 1907. It is also known as "The Doctrines of the Modernists." The following is the saintly Pope's description of how bad Catholic Politicians were justifying  themselves even when he wrote it: [...]

St. Ignatius of Antioch on the Eucharist and Unity with Rome

By |2021-06-23T01:18:09+00:00June 23rd, 2021|Theology|

St. Ignatius of Antioch was the disciple and close friend of St. John the Evangelist who wrote five books of the New Testament.  What would St. Ignatius of Antioch say today to a Protestant or Eastern Orthodox asking him questions about salvation?  I composed the following questions, but all of the answers come verbatim from the saint and martyr, Ignatius of Antioch, around the year 100 AD.   How is Jesus with us after His Resurrection? "I have no taste for corruptible food nor for the pleasures of this life. I desire the bread of God, which is the flesh of Jesus Christ, who was of the seed of David; [...]

Religious Indifferentism is Arianism

By |2021-06-21T16:29:56+00:00June 22nd, 2021|Theology|

If Pope St. Pius X was correct that "modernism is the synthesis of all heresies" then wouldn't we see all heresies of the past fulfilled in it? Yes we would see that.  And yes we do see that If Jesus is merely the "privileged route to salvation," then all religions can be a vehicle to salvation.  However, this notion is no different from Arianism.  Here's why:  Jesus claims to be God.  Jesus claims to be the only way, truth and life.  If this is not true, then He is not God.  And this is Arianism.  Thus, religious indifferentism encapsulates a thousand heresies, including Arianism. Notice that belief in the Trinity is [...]
