Fr. Hesse: A Second Conversation on Tradition

Posted on by Christopher Pieretti

In this 2001 interview, Fr. Gregory Hesse discusses the new mass and the changes to the Rite of Priestly Ordination and the new Rite for the consecration of Bishops. Fr. Gregory Hesse, S.T.D., J.C.D. of Vienna, Austria was ordained in 1981 in St. Peter's Basilica. He held doctorates in both Thomistic theology and Canon Law. From 1986-88 he served as Secretary to Cardinal Stickler at the Vatican. From 1991, he left the Novus Ordo Modernist 'Catholic' Church, found the Traditional Catholic Faith and worked in Austria, Germany and the United States giving lectures and producing theological articles that appeared in Catholic Family News, The Fatima Crusader and other journals. He died of complications due to diabetes on 25 January 2006.

Fr. Hesse spoke extensively on the true and false understanding of Papal infallibility and the modern errors in the understanding of sacred tradition, religious liberty and ecumenism brought about by the errors or obscurity and lack of definition in the documents of the Second Vatican Council based on established Church teaching from previous councils and Papal encyclicals. He also spoke on the question of the new Mass of Pope Paul VI making distinctions between the terms "valid" and "licit" again supported by past Church teaching.

The Spiritual Combat

Posted on by Christopher Pieretti

For Lent - The Spiritual Combat...

Fr. Lorenzo Scupoli (1530-1610) was the author of The Spiritual Combat, one of the most important works of Catholic spirituality.  In 1589 in Venice the first edition of the work of his life was printed. At once it gained huge esteem and became a bestseller.  The Combat is a practical manual of living. At first it teaches that the sense of life is incessant fighting against egoistic longings and replacing them with sacrifice and charity. The one who does not do this loses, and suffers in Hell; the one who does it, trusting not in his own, but God's power, triumphs and is happy in Heaven. The work of Scupoli analyses various usual situations and advises how to cope with them, preserving a pure conscience and improving virtue. It emphasizes also the boundless goodness of God, which is the cause of all good. What is bad originates from the human who rebels against God.

With the increasing tensions between Russia, the Ukraine, the EU and the United States, it is important to know that there have been many prophecies over the past 200+ years that deal specifically with Russia as God's instrument of chastisement upon sinful humanity as well as her role in the restoration of Holy Christendom. This short film covers prophecies that are both well known and those most have never heard of.

Video: Please, Don't call Protestants Christians

Posted on by Christopher Pieretti

The following video is an audio reading of an excellent article that appeared on the Tradition In Action website authored by Marian T. Horvat, Ph.D.  This article exposes the contradiction of calling Protestants (those who reject the One Church of Christ and reject many of Christ's teachings), Christians.  Only those who actually believe and live according to what Christ taught and are united to the One Church that Christ founded can be called Christians.   You can read the article at this link:

Posted on by Christopher Pieretti

One hundred years before the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima, Blessed Elizabeth Canori Mora received prophetic revelations that spoke of the current crisis in the Church, the Great Chastisement and the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart.  Blessed Elizabeth Canori Mora was born in 1774 and lived in Italy until her saintly death in 1825. On instructions from her confessor, she wrote down her revelations which fill hundreds of notebook pages. Today, the manuscripts are safely kept in the archives of the Trinitarian Fathers at San Carlino, Rome.
