Why Do Some Catholics Still Question Role of the SSPX as Crisis Continues?

Consider... Some weeks ago, a reader from a far-flung part of the world, emailed to ask for my help in responding to critics of the SSPX . It surprises me that there are still Catholics out there who are living through the utter chaos in both the Church and the world, and yet do not...

Catholic Church: Why the Scandalous Compliance in Covid-19 “Crisis”?

One of the most shocking aspects of the Covid-19 lockdown, with its serious restrictions on personal freedoms, both civil and religious, is the way in which the Church has co-operated - from the Pope down. No questions asked, simply uncritical obedience, of the kind not even expected of religious men and women in monasteries. ...

SSPX: Church Militant Guilty of Peddling Sleaze – Catholic Truth

        Michael Voris, Church Militant Editor, Catholic Truth, writes... Our blogger, Athanasius, has now studied the recent articles about the SSPX published by the American organisation known as Church Militant (CM), which were brought to our attention recently.  To describe those articles as "sleaze" is an understatement, by any standards. Their most recent...

SSPX Building Up Vs Pulling Down…

Modern Catholics: Confusion Reigns.

Should Catholics Be Concerned About The New Forms Of The Sacraments?

Yesterday, I found myself in conversation with a reader  (we'll call her Jo, because that's not her name but it's short and sweet) who has started attending the SSPX Masses in Glasgow.  We were discussing the hostility which I have personally witnessed at a number of Fatima meetings recently, when novus-attending Catholics became furiously...

Growing Catholic Identity Crisis…

Editor writes.... Since Pope Benedict XVI's motu proprio, Summorum Pontificum, permitting all priests to offer the Traditional Latin Mass (TLM) without seeking permission from bishops, there has been a kind of "traditionalist identity crisis" within the Church, where "conservative" priests and people have taken to the ancient Mass and, coupled with their orthodox adherence...

New Website: Archbishop Lefebvre – Problem Or Prophet?

  As the turmoil in the Church intensifies with every new report from the Vatican (think sacrilegious "climate change Light Show" at St Peter's) it might help to pause for an edifying few moments, to take a trip around the new website on the life of Archbishop Lefebvre.  Click here to view, and then share...
