Exclusive Access to CIC 2018 Via On-Demand Video:
I'd like to let you in on an early bird special for this year's Catholic Identity Conference (November 2, 3, and 4). We're opening up early registration this week for the CIC On-Demand service, which means that if you cannot be with us physically this year, you can at least join us virtually.
There are only 25 seats left over at www.CatholicIdentityConference.org which we hope to fill over the course of the next week; but there will be unlimited availability via Remnant TV's CIC On-Demand.
Our RTV crew is already hard at work making sure to bring you top quality video of the event, along with special interviews, interactive online features and full access to each exciting CIC talk within minutes of its completion.
As Catholics begin to feel the noose tightening around their own necks here in 2018, it seems somehow appropriate to remind ourselves of the persecution that may come, that please God never will, but that did visit itself upon our brothers and sisters in Mexico not so very long ago. May their heroic example inspire us to stay strong and to never surrender that which meant everything to our fathers in the years and centuries leading up to the Second Vatican Council: the ancient traditions of the holy Catholic Faith, especially the old Latin Mass.
Few Americans—and amazingly few Mexicans—are aware of the epic, three-year struggle to save the Catholic faith that convulsed Mexico in the 1920s. Fewer still are aware of the key players in this dramatic event that came to be known as “La Cristiada,” or “The Cristero War”.
Mexico has a long and fascinating history. In 1924, a deadly period was ushered in by the tenure of President Plutarco Elias Calles. This shift catalyzed the period known as the Maximato. It was during the Maximato that La Cristiada took place.
We’re wearing out Ezekiel’s Trumpet.
“Son of man, speak to your people and tell them: ‘Suppose I bring the sword against a land, and the people of that land choose a man from among them, appointing him as their watchman, and he sees the sword coming against that land and blows his trumpet to warn the people. Then if anyone hears the sound of the trumpet but fails to heed the warning, and the sword comes and takes him away, his blood will be on his own head…”
People who write about the crisis in the Church are saying the same thing; a lot of people are getting it at last. What we really need now is a plan of action.
