Dear Mr. Matt:

Thank you for your greetings. I wrote an answer to The Remnant‘s Open Letter, which I send to you in the attachment and you can publish. God bless abundantly you and your apostolate for the Catholic faith. With cordial greetings in Jesus and Mary,

+ Athanasius Schneider


Dear Mr. Christopher A. Ferrara:
On May 9, 2016 you published on “The Remnant” website an open letter to me regarding the question of the Apostolic Exhortation “Amoris laetitia”.

As a bishop, I am grateful and at the same time encouraged to receive from a Catholic layman such a clear and beautiful manifestation of the “sensus fidei” regarding the Divine truth on marriage and the moral law.

“All the kindly statements made on the Mass from Rome console old folks for whom the reforms of the Council came "too fast" and sometimes with unnecessary "insensitivity – but no one has said the reforms were wrong. They have refused to face the issue, – which is not nostalgia on the part of-those "who feel close to some older liturgical forms," but the shipwreck of the Catholic Church. I mean a new Mass, a new catechism, a new morality, a flagrantly mistranslated Bible, an architecture and music which constitute a thoroughly orchestrated and rehearsed attack on Catholic doctrine and practice.” - John Senior

Editor’s Note: The following is Chapter 5 of the late great Dr. John Senior’s book “The Remnants: The Final Essays of John Senior.” The book is available from The Remnant but this particular chapter seems particularly apropos at this time. May the incomparable Dr. Senior rest in peace, and if our good God has seen fit to lead his faithful servant into paradise already, may John Senior intercede for us all and help us to keep the old Faith he himself defended so well while on this earth. MJM

These hasty notes document a state of mind and soul (in anguish) in the days between the consecrations at Ecône, the threat of excommunication hanging over us who attend Mass at Society of Pius X Chapels, and the Sunday coming up. I am anxious to hear the opinions of those more knowledgeable, especially of Walter Matt, the best Catholic journalist in America, Michael Davies in England, Jean Madiran in France, and Dom Gerard of Le Barroux.

Remnant columnist, Father Ladis Cizik, blesses police vehicles
before the Traditional Latin (Blue) Mass last year

The Knights of Columbus Woodlawn Council 2161Traditional Latin Mass Guild annually holds a Traditional Latin “Blue Mass” to honor the police and law enforcement officers in the Beaver County area of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Police cars are blessed before the Mass and a banquet with speakers is offered after the Holy Sacrifice. Many people attend who are not a part of the Latin Mass community, including judges and elected government officials. It is the Knights hope, through our Traditional Latin Mass events, to bring Novus Ordo Catholics to Tradition; and perhaps even lead non-Catholics to consider our Holy Catholic Faith. The following sermon by Father Cizik was delivered on May 14, 2016 at Saint Titus Church in Aliquippa:

In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti. Amen.

2016 Blue Mass: The Color is Red Featured

By:

chris and rich man
“If thou wilt enter into [eternal] life, keep the commandments. He said to him, ‘Which?’ And Jesus said, ‘Thou shalt do no murder, thou shalt not commit adultery . . .’”

“Whosoever shall put away his wife and marry another committeth adultery against her. And if the wife shall put away her husband and be married to another, she committeth adultery.” (Mk. 10:11 – 12)

My dear friends –
Catholics (even our Divine Saviour Himself) have traditionally used St. Peter’s fishing boat as the symbol of the Catholic Church. I think more accurately, though, given that the Church here on earth is also called the Church Militant, the ancient Roman war galley, called a “trireme” after the three banks of oars used to propel it into battle, is a more apt symbol. Yes one may fish from it, but more practically, Catholics, especially confirmed Catholics, are obliged to wage war from it, war against error, against heresy, against moral depravity, in a word, against the spirit of this world.

Sheep Goat Judgement

He shall come to judge the living and the dead 

I was visiting my good friend Judy at the nursing home yesterday—as I do most Fridays. A third order Dominican, who never married, Judy was the choir director and organist at Holy Family Church in downtown Detroit forover thirty years. Amazingly—and perhaps uniquely—Holy Family kept all the old customs throughout the Revolution. Although the people were forced—like everyone else—to accept the truncated and linguistically impoverished “new arrangement, the mass was Latin, a missa cantata with Asperges before and Benediction followingDaily Mass was also Latin--quiet, reverent, and holy.

In order to show clearly the manner and the extent to which the priesthood has been affected by the crisis through which the Church is passing today, it will not be inappropriate to describe this crisis briefly. We will do so by pointing to some aspects of this tragic situation. 

In the first place, we are witnessing the constant attacks made upon the integrity of our Catholic faith. Two powerful means have been used to corrupt that truth which has been faithfully handed down to us.

These are tumultuous times, both inside and outside the Church, no doubt about it.  It is unsurprising therefore that among some of the faithful there is a growing interest in the end times and Catholic prophecy.

Spend just a few minutes on Catholic social media and you will see faithful who run the gamut from viewing today’s events as humdrum growing pains in the age of the Church, to those who seem convinced that the Parousia is just around the corner.  Further, you will see well-meaning faithful getting caught up in messages of some modern-day apparition of a self-proclaimed messenger of God.  Some Catholics, realizing the problems to which an uncritical approach to prophecy can easily lead, reject all or most prophecy rather than risk going down that particular rabbit-hole.

THE HOLY SPIRIT, SOUL OF THE MISSION

Under the patronage of all Christian martyrs, past and present

The infant Church rose from the blood of martyrs. Christ’s ultimate sacrifice was the standard to which countless courageous men and women held themselves. Their sacrifices were a great boon to the early Church; through the merits of her martyrs, Rome – the site of some of the world’s most vicious Christian persecutions – transfigured into the very heart and soul of a mature and powerful Christendom.  Today the saga continues; Christians in the Middle East die each day for their convictions, and their deaths cannot be in vain. The Pilgrimage to Chartres proves this. It unites the spirit of these champions with the Cause for which they shed their blood – the martyrs of Christendom died for that Mass, the same one celebrated before thousands with such solemn, triumphal beauty today in Notre Dame de Chartres; martyrs today die that the one true Faith might never vanish entirely from the earth. Your participation in this event, physically or spiritually, raises a cry toward Heaven which cannot but be heard there: “Look what your martyrs have won! Victory belongs to God and His Church! Thanks be to God!

THE HOLY SPIRIT AND HIS GIFTS FOR THE CHURCH

Under the patronage of Saint Pius X

St. Pius X was plucked by God from a humble childhood and entrusted with the most illustrious position on earth. This gentle saint, inclined to contemplation rather than public minstry, possessed a mighty spirit, and left to his spiritual children a thunderous legacy. This pope, a deadly enemy of Modernism, is an obvious patron of this pilgrimage, which has as its goal the return of the Church to her Traditions; the triumph of the Old Faith over the sickness that is Modernism. May the prayers and protection of this champion of Tradition be with the participants of this pilgrimage on the Feast of Pentecost!

THE HOLY SPIRIT, SPIRIT OF HOLINESS

Under the patronage of Saint Catherine of Siena

St. Catherine of Siena is the brilliant, courageous mystic who defied a pope, weathered the Great Schism, and spent the last half of her life in Rome, desperately working toward the restoration of the Church. Her story, in this last respect, reminds us of our own; we strive every day toward the restoration of Tradition; of the true Church of Rome, the home we can’t help but love. Her spirit is no doubt with the pilgrims and their sponsors and prayer warriors during the most important annual event happening in the Church today. St. Catherine was not content with simply biding the times; she called for action, begging the faithful to “cry out with a hundred thousand tongues! I see that the world is rotten because of silence.” At least fifteen thousand are heeding her words today, as they show to a languishing world the force and vigour of glorious Old Christendom. “Be who God meant you to be, and you will set the world on fire!” Hardly a truer statement. St. Catherine, pray for us!

U.S. Chapter, Chartres, 2009

- Follow along from home each day;

- Video Updates every day on The Remnant Facebook Page

The Remnant’s team here in the States is bound for France this week. God willing, we will once again be walking with our traditional Catholic brothers from all over the world on the grand Pentecost Pilgrimage of Notre-Dame de Chrétienté to Chartres.

I ask readers to please keep their 70 fellow American pilgrims in their prayers as we once again attempt the 3-day pilgrimage across France. The now 25-year-old U.S. Chapter of Our Lady of Guadalupe will remember all of the readers of The Remnant in their prayers every day on the road to Chartres.
