  1. Four Carmels, as well as a traditionalist branch of the Dominican friars with about 50 friars, a very strict and flourishing branch of the Capuchins with 3-4 houses and over 75 friars, at least 3 Benedictine abbies of monks and the same for nuns, plus about 20-25 other traditionalist Orders ranging from a dozen or so members, to those close to 75-100.
    This is the true Roman Catholic Church....not the modernist, improvised, fabricated at a minutes notice, updated, radical liberal dissenting Vatican II Catholic Church of Pope Francis.

  2. I agree with your comment. However, you have to understand the confusion as seen from the mind of PF. He wants a Church which interacts with society instead of living in a cloister. Unfortunately, his acceptance of immorality as a virtue negates all of his good intentions.

  3. JBQ: This is one of the most absurd statements I have read in a long time---and that in an age of endless absurdities. When was the time when the Church did not "interact with society"?! What do you call the bimillenial record of hospitals, schools, universities, clinics, hospitals, orphanages, and a plethora of institutions at the service of humanity if not an interaction with society no other institution on earth has even come close to achieving? Let us not adopt the ideas and language of our enemies (the iconoclastic liberals and Modernists), for if we do we have surrendered and already lost the war. Francis is not interested in "interacting with the world" nor does he seem by his daily actions and words seem to have good intentions---he wants the world to come in and raze down the immemorial Church and all She has ever stood for. The irony is that when he accomplishes that goal---as he seems to be doing with the most enigmatic permissive Will of God---then that precious "interaction" turns to tyranny, which is in fact not interaction at all but iron-fisted action (without the "inter")---all on one side. Where, do you think, most of the contributors to this blog would fall in that unilateral tyrannical world? Yes, you guessed it right.

    1. If you're going to be snotty and condescending, you should at least try to get the object of your malice's point of view right, rather than imagining one for you to demolish. Thankfully for you, it's anonymous.

    2. T, I didn't see and 'snottiness, condescension, or malice' there. He/she was right in spades.

    3. All JBQ did was say that Bergoglio wants to laicized and demysticize (desacralize) the Church, which is true.

    4. yep, I can see that. But the way he said "...you have to understand the confusion as seen from the mind of PF. He wants a Church which interacts with society instead of living in a cloister", kinda came across sounding like a rationalization for bergoglio's heterodoxy. The Church has always intersected with society...that's not new or 'bergoglian'...same with 'mercy'. While at the same time, bergoglio wants to take the cloisters (the engine of the world) and open them up to the world and all its filth...let that old 'smoke of satan' in, in big drafts. I think anon. just read it in a very literal way as almost an apologetic for bergoglio (which, truth be told, it kinda sounded like (especially as though cloisters were a bad thing) even though I'm sure that JBQ didn't mean it that way...he's a good and rational soul).

      Tempers and antennae are up....especially when there are agitators and bomb throwers (secular and religious) everywhere, like the uber-gay-demon feybriel, who BTW is making his antifa-masked reappearance under "anonymous 7:41" in you Schneider post...he just can't stay away from ya T....I think he's kinda sweet on you....aren't you the lucky guy.

    6. Where is the snottiness or malice in the forceful but on target response to JBQ above, August 19/7:31 AM?! To speak at this point of Bergoglio's "good intentions" is naive at best. All that the responder did was to provide a list of the great engagement of the Church of Christ through two millenia to point out the truly absurd notion that NOW the Church needs to engage the world, an indirect slander to all the great works of mercy She has done in this world. Do you realize the demoralizing effect of attacking those who are clearly on our side, and attacking them unfairly at that, as any rational person can see that 1) JBQ's comment certainly lends itself to criticism (and perhaps misinterpretation as well) and 2) the responder has not attacked him personally but disagreed, quite rationally, with the larger implications of what he said. Sometimes I must wonder whose side this blog is really on---I have not noticed this gratuitous virulence against those who do attack persons and the Faith here. No wonder the Modernist liberals are winning within the Church. With friends like these, who needs enemies? Too bad. RCC

    7. To attribute malice (an intention) to those who do not exhibit it, Tancred, is the mortal sin of detraction. Lucy S.

      Delete
    8. RCC, JBQ wrote nothing wrong. I'm increasingly disinclined to accept comments from know-it-alls who don't sign their posts so that I can distinguish one petty armchair canonist from the next.

      If you can't be bothered to interpret what people write correctly, sign your name, or some name, I can't be bothered to be courteous or refrain from deleting.

      I'm here, working for free, and when someone wants to use what is a fantastic story of vocational success on the part of the SSPX, as an opportunity to nitpick about something no one ever said in the first place, I'm of a mind to shut off the comments entirely.

      Delete
    9. Yes, indeed. Detraction, which the attribution of malice to those we do not know and have done nothing to us personally, our dear ones, our country, of our Faith is a mortal sin. You, Tancred, don't get to decided what constitutes a mortal sin. You should be ashamed. Lucy S.

    10. If you knew what detraction really was, I might even be scared of you blog mommy.

  4. Thanks to the holy and visionary work of Archbishop Lefebvre we have a remnant of the True Church today, the ingratitude of many so-called traditionalists who benefit from the traditional mass, doctrine and sacraments and who still malign him notwithstanding. But as Shakespeare noted dramatically in "King Lear," ingratitude is the normal condition of the human race---and traditionalists seem, I lament to say, to be particularly wounded with this effect of original sin.

    WHO held the Fort
    Till the Calvary came
    Fighting for all
    In His Holy Name?

    WHO fed the sheep
    As the pastures burned dry?
    A few Good Shepherds
    Heeding their cry.

    WHO led the charge
    ‘Gainst heresy’s Huns
    Defending the degreed
    To His lowliest ones?

    WHO battened down
    The hatch of the barque
    To warm cold souls
    From shivering-seas dark?

    “WHO?” mocks Satan
    Delighting in doubt
    Fills you with questions,
    Never lets you find out.

    “Hoc est enum
    Corpus meum…
    and for many…” who kept
    The dead words – Te Deum!

    “The knock-out blow of Satan
    has been to cause disobedience
    in the name of obedience.”
    (Fr. Cyprian, OSB, Prior of Our Lady of Guadalupe Monastery)

  6. May they continue to flourish. We have them to thank for the preservation of our traditions and our holy Catholic faith!

  7. Gee, I always thought that the true Roman Catholic Church was led by the Pope. Sometimes Martin Luther would be proud of the comments here.

    1. gee anonymous, I always thought the pope would defend the Deposit of Faith rather than speaking out and teaching against the very words of Christ. Martin Luther would be very proud of the man celebrating his heresy and schism.

    2. Great rebuttal Susan. Accurate,clean, concise and to the point. Sometimes I ramble in my posts, but I eventually get to the point. Your comment was 100%. Now I only wish the object of all our comments would just pack up and quietly take a flight back to his homeland, buy a hacienda somewhere, put his feet up, sip his matte tea, and enjoy being retired. But not call himself another "pope emeritus"

    3. As usual, Susan, you are right on target. I wonder how Tancred has spared you from his unwarranted and irrational hatred as he at times dishes out most copiously (as in the case of the responder to JBQ above) to those who defend the Faith against Bergoglio. An excellent reply to the troll who would identify the commenters here with Lutherans---by the way, I notice that Tancred spared him his verbal acid. I guess that troll's stab at traditional Catholics is not as offensive to him as a catalogue of the great works of mercy of the Church stated to show Bergoglio's sideswipe at her illustrious history. Oh well, the consequences of original sin have never been in question to those who think clearly and have the Faith.

    4. Hey Damian...how ya doin?...long period of no comments from you; I was starting to get worried. Glad you're OK.

      and Anon, go a little easy on the great Tancred...he's a warrior, and he's our host. The demonic trolls (inside and outside of the Church) have everybody on edge and they know it. Keep your powder dry and aimed at the real enemies...they look to inflame and divide and take our attention off of the target. God bless you good man (woman?...you really should sign your posts).

      Delete
    5. Susan:
      You may have noticed that the aggression (in fact, bullying) came out of the clear blue from Tancred. He is the one who does not aim at the real enemies at times and even resorts to threats: "thankfully for you, it's Anonymous." I would respond that I fail to quake in my boots at his threat but would gladly meet him in person anywhere in this country he names, at a time he appoints, with the necessary identifying elements he names to answer his bullying threat personally. Not signing a post is a rather irrelevant issue, Susan, (whom I admire and have praised and defended from "Jim" and his other incarnations more than once in this blog). Just a first name (whether real or made up) is not in essence different from a nom de plume like "Tancred" or a simple "Anonymous." This is quibbling. We all need protection from the crazies, as do our families, and the use of a made-up name or nom de plume is not in essence any more courageous or different from using "Anonymous," which could easily be "JFYUEI" or any such invention. You are a clear-thinking and intelligent woman, Susan, so surely you can see that. It is "Tancred" (his baptismal name? I doubt it) who needs to aim his fire at the real enemy; being the blog host does not affort him, according to the tenets of Catholic ethics to which as a public writer he is especially bound, the luxury or privilege of maligning people who have done nothing to him and who do not deserve it. Those are the tactics, usually, of the Left---not of Catholics. God bless you and keep up the good fight, our modern Joan of Arch (as I dubbed you on another post). I lament I will not from now on be reading your valiant defense of the Faith as I will not return to this blog. Anonymous (Just like the rest of you)

    6. Anon I appreciate the kind words...truly. But I have no desire or plan to start 'shooting' at the good guys, one of which Tancred surely is. I wish we could get past the circular firing squad and forgive each other a flare of temper or an inopportune word now and then. the feybriels of the world are the ones trying to descend us to the abyss; and from the Throne of Peter down we see an infestation of them, probably only solvable thru Divine intervention.

      Don't go away angry...forgive and fight the REAL enemy. We've really gotta get better at the Spiritual Works of Mercy (especially 4 & 5). When we perceive that a brother-in-arms has personally slighted us, give the benefit of the doubt to him and let it slide. When a feybriel, with he intent of bringing down the Church, volleys, give as good (or better) than you get. That's a holy defense.

      God bless you immensely, and keep up the good fight...just don't turn your sights on those in the same colors...we'll have few left for the big show....and I fear, that's not so very far off.

    10. I have never witnessed on any of the other fine traditional Catholic blogs (One Peter Five, The Remnant, Adelante la Fe, Rorate, etc.) the hatred and insanity I witness here, mainly from Tancred, the blog master. No wonder the enemy has ammunition to attack us. Shame! McLendon

    11. Every single time you make these dishonest promises to leave the blog and go somewhere else, because I'm literally Martin Luther, you always return to later make the same complaint when I reassert my ownership of the blog by objecting to what you or others do to detract from the quality of the comment section.

  8. Hey Susan,
    Thanks for the kind words. I was busy on a modeling shoot in Mexico....used to do it full time 3 years ago. Didn't like a lot of the environment of the industry (people, priorities, orientation, etc.) Made a ton, but then decided to do something more people directed...and there's not much better than being a teacher. So I got certified, and am a highschool teacher, starting out my 2nd year at my local publich HS teaching 9th and 1oth grade History and languages (Spanish, French). I model on the off season. Was in Mexico.
    Your posts are always great. I always like posting here, where we all (or mostly all), share the same traditional Catholic faith and love for the Church, and also a genuine concern about the Church and animosity towards the current Pope....who believe it or not is widely disliked in Mexico (and elsewhere in the world). In Mexico people still cheer for JP II. It's moving to see the love for him, but also a little morbidly obsessive in some parishes. They like Benedict XVI...but Francis? I wasn't prepared for the dislike so many have for him.
    Have a good week!
