Sr. Lucia Called Vatican II a Holy Council

“The simple remembrance of the mysteries in each decade is another radiance of light supporting the burning torch in souls. This is why the devil has moved against it—such a great war.

Does Pope Francis Only Quote Post Vatican II Sources

In a video by Timothy Gordon entitled “5 Catholics Debate the Motu and SSPX” about Pope Francis’ recent move on Traditional Latin Masses, apart from a few speakers wrongful attribution of the word wicked to Pope Francis, (not M.

It was tempting as an avid supporter of Vatican II to go way to far in underlining the fact in Pope Francis’ recent Motu Proprio shows that still and yet again the Magisterium of the Church is telling us in not so many words (as it has constantly said so explicitly) that the future isContinue reading “Why No V2 Supporters Should Gloat over the Restrictions on the TLM”

Why This Canada Day Vatican II Thinking (Religious Liberty, Respecting Cultures, Evangelize From Within) Gives Hope When Previous Catholic Mindsets Failed and Resulted in Residential Schools (Religious Restriction, Destroying Cultures, Evangelizing by Force)

Let’s face it, most things have a substantial amount of strings attached. I just want to point that out. To claim that Vatican II needs a reforming council needs to be a balanced statement. Simply, saying we need to go back to the past and forget everything it did — sounds and is very muchContinue reading “A Reform of the Reform — Making Liturgy Great Again????
