Ivanov Christs Appearance to Mary Magdalene after the Resurrection 1834 gtg 17631crop 715x451
Saint Mary Magdalen is one of those favored souls who actually walked with Our Lord, witnessed His passion and death, and yet kept the faith even after seeing firsthand the horrors of His Crucifixion. “God is dead,” the Romans told her, but she paid them little mind then even as we should when they claim the same thing today.

In a time of discouragement and loss of faith, Magdalene emerges as the powerful patroness of hope and perseverance. She is not a doctor of the Church, but she shows what love of Christ can attain, even for poor, ignorant sinners, and how God crowns such love with His predilection.  Her books were the Soul and the Sacred Humanity of Our Lord, Jesus Christ, and her wisdom was Eternal Wisdom Itself. She is also the one who wept for Christ because she could not find Him. “The Angels said to her ‘Woman, why are you weeping?’ She said to them ‘Because they have taken away my Lord and I do not know where they have laid Him’.’”

At the age of 33, Jesus was condemned to death.  At the time Crucifixion was the "worst" death. Only the worst criminals were condemned to be crucified. Yet it was even more dreadful for Jesus, unlike other criminals condemned to death by crucifixion Jesus was to be nailed to the cross by His hands and feet.

Each nail was 6 to 8 inches long. The nails were driven into His wrist. Not into His palms as is commonly portrayed. There's a tendon in the wrist that extends to the shoulder. The Roman guards knew that when the nails were being hammered into the wrist that tendon would tear and break, forcing Jesus to use His back muscles to support himself so that He could breathe. Both of His feet were nailed together. Thus He was forced to support Himself on the single nail that impaled His feet to the cross.

Last week I posted a personal story on The Remnant’s site entitled Lindsey’s Gift of Life.”Therein I shared the touching account of one heroic wife and mother, Lindsey Bourbeau, who though only recently starting out in her own married life, put everything on hold in order an undergo a major surgery to remove half of her liver and donate it to her husband’s dying aunt—my sister, Gretchen (Matt) Mills.

“In a world filled with ugly selfishness and proud conceit,” I wrote, “I’m conflicted by, on the one hand, the beauty of what is going on here, and on the other, a sense of deep concern for the lives and health of these two strong Catholic women… Until recently, Gretchen, though quite literally wasting away, was considered by her doctors not quite sick enough (she now suffers from advanced cirrhosis) to be a candidate for liver transplant, unless she could find a live donor. Her situation recently became quite critical, and that’s when Lindsey stepped in.”

Gretchen Has Gone to God Featured

Father's sermon covers some aspects of these last days of Christ's life before the Passion. The effort to stoine Christ, after He'd called Lazarus back from the dead, fails. But why?  

Also why do Protestant and even many Catholics in the Novus Ordo remove Christ from the Cross?

SUNDAY SERMON: The Christ-less Cross Featured

By:
I was chatting with a guy in a waiting room the other day about religion.  He related that his cousin converted to the Russian Orthodox religion and eventually became a bishop.  He said that his cousin believed that Islam was an evil religion and remarked about how unchristian it was to allege such a thing.  I replied that most Christians today refuse to acknowledge the truth about their own religions, let alone Islam.

Is Islam just a bad or corrupted religion, or is it really evil?  This is why I believe it to be evil:

Islam: Was it Really Gabriel?

Dear Friends:

As I write these few lines, two members of my family are lying on operating tables at the University of Minnesota hospital. One is my older sister, Gretchen (Matt) Mills, and the other is Lindsey (Heesch) Bourbeau, the young wife of  another sister’s second son, Stephen.  Gretchen is a very sick person, and has been for many years. She’s been in surgery now for 10 hours. Lindsey is the healthy mother of an adopted young son, Jacob (one year old).

Pope Francis establishes provisions for Novus Ordo priests to preside over SSPX marriages.  Why would he do that? Malachi Martin and William F. Buckley chat about the Traditional Latin Mass on Crossfire, 1980.

Funeral and WakeThe family will be present to receive friends on Friday from 3-9 PM at the (Tonawanda Chapel) AMIGONE FUNERAL HOME, INC. 2600 Sheridan Drive (at Parker Blvd) where the Rosary will be said at 7:00 PM. A Solemn High Requiem Mass will be celebrated on Saturday at Corpus Christi Church, 199 Clark Street, Buffalo, at 9:30 AM. 

Dear Friends:


In your charity, please remember the repose of the soul of our brother and champion defender of Christ’s Church, John Vennari, who passed away earlier today.

Quite frankly, I have no words to adequately express the magnitude of this loss, both for the traditional Catholic movement and for us personally here at The Remnant.  John was our ally, our friend and our brother in arms. The thought of fighting in these trenches without him at our side is still just too unthinkable. And the Church has lost a most faithful watchman with this passing of the editor of the incomparable Catholic Family News.

Please pray for John, now and throughout the rest of Passiontide. I don’t believe it to be a mere coincidence that this loyal soldier of Christ underwent his passion during the very days when the Church remembers the passion of the One John served so faithfully.

After four years of the Bergoglian tumult, it is undeniable that we are witness to a Pope who is averse to sound doctrine and whose teaching, if one can call it that, is generally unreliable if not positively contrary to the Faith. The faithful look on with growing alarm and disgust as Pope Bergoglio commits an error almost every time he opens his mouth to speak, earning the world’s applause for his cavalier disregard of orthodoxy and traditional disciplines of Apostolic origin. The Church is rocked by the horrific impact of his formal, ghostwritten documents. Evangelii Gaudium, Laudato si’ and Amoris Laetitia are rife with false statements of fact, misleading citations, dubious opinions on matters far beyond the papal competence, captious theological propositions, and blatant departures from prior teaching on faith and morals—always intermingled, however, with orthodox bits and pieces that allow for a sophistical defense of continuity with the Magisterium.

Editor's Note: This is an expanded version of an article that appeared in a recent print-edition of The Remnant. We're reproducing it here in the interest of furthering constructive discussion of what could become (if it happens) the most significant development in the Church since Summorum Pontificum. These discussions before the fact seem appropriate to me, but should not be construed as an attack on those who are in favor of regularization. There are good men on both sides of this issue, and what follows are merely the opinions of one man who could be very much mistaken. This is just how I see it--as an outsider--and the reader is perfectly free to dismiss my concerns, and remain my friend and brother in arms. MJM

The Remnant does not traffic in rumors. But over the past few months, rumors of an imminent Society of St. Pius X regularization have abounded, with Superior General Bishop Bernard Fellay finally confirming that these are indeed more than mere rumors, though the matter is far from settled.
