This Sunday Sermon from So. Saint Paul, Father traces the powerful devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus all the way back to Our Lady and St. Joseph.
Fast-forwarding to recent years, Father credits his dedication to the Traditional Latin Mass to the fact that he first began offering that Mass on First Fridays, due to the First Friday Devotion to the Sacred Heart that made this one of the strongest TLM parishes in the country.
The order in any society depends on its morals, beliefs, traditions, laws, religion and values – in short, its culture. The revolution which is the subject of this essay is a movement which seeks to change or supplant the social order through the activities of an intending agency to change its culture.
Volumes have been written on political revolutions and their causes. A classic treatment of revolution can be found in Book 5 of Aristotle’s Politics. He treats revolutions as they occur in various types of governments. But these are external manifestations of revolution. Here I wish to focus my remarks below on basic features of revolution: its spirit, its lust for domination, and its use of deceit to achieve its goals.
What is at the heart of it is something spiritual. Let us see what the spirit of revolution has to say for itself:

Now is the time for all Christians to come to the aid of their countries under globalist siege.
Here in America, we know that our country is far from perfect. She needs desperately to turn back to God. But we will not give up on her, especially now when she's burning and being betrayed from within.

From the Editor's Desk, Michael Matt tackles the question of rising racial tension in America and its impact on the 2020 presidential election.
In the wake of the brutal murder of George Floyd, Michael takes a closer look at police brutality, race relations now and in the past, and suggests that our nation's war on God and Christian morality needs to be reconsidered immediately!
I haven’t appeared on these pages for a while because, as Special Counsel to the Thomas More Society (TMS), my time has been consumed with filing and prosecuting major litigation against the Governors of New York and New Jersey and the Mayor of New York City over their tyrannical and increasingly ridiculous COVID-19 “lockdown” regimes of executive orders that micromanage literally every aspect of the lives of millions of people on the pretext of a virus that is going the way of all seasonal viral epidemics.
Both suits involve an unusual alliance between priests of the Society of Saint Pius X—the only Catholic priests willing so far to challenge the lockdowns in court—and Orthodox Jews, who likewise are the only willing Jewish plaintiffs in suits against this tyranny.
Introduction by Michael J. Matt: Over the past half century of crisis in the Catholic Church, one of the main points of division among Tradition-minded Catholics centered around the question of whether there was something inherently contrary to Tradition about the Second Vatican Council itself, or was it merely the Modernist interpretations of the Council that flowed abundantly into the lifeblood of the Church after the close of the Council in 1965.
Over the past few decades, many conservative commentators were ready to admit that the so-called “Spirit of the Council” had led to much devastation in the Church. But they parted company with those of us who felt obliged in conscience to point out that at least some of the sixteen documents themselves were inherently at odds with the constant magisterial teaching of the Church.
THE CHURCHES ARE open now in the Archdiocese of Detroit for “public Mass,” but Catholics have not been set free. The rules for being permitted to kneel at Calvary are in perfect accord with the rules of the state. Check-ins. Reservations. Social Distancing. Face covering. Every hollow one of them.
The archbishop has bowed to the governor. By order of a Prince of the Church, a successor of the Apostles, the priests must obey, the people must comply. The Mask must be worn.
Introduction by Michael J. Matt: As I write these words, reports are circulating that as many as one million protesters are expected to descend on our nation’s capital this weekend. The radical leftist mayor of Washington, Muriel Bowser, has set the stage for a showdown with the White House by having city workers paint a two-block-long “Black Lives Matter” down the street leading to the White House. She’s also kicked National Guardsmen out of D.C. hotels and sent them home. And this comes on the heels of Washington’s Archbishop Wilton Gregory throwing a verbal brick at the president for daring to pray at the National Shrine in the wake of violence that left over 60 Secret Service agents injured, monuments defaced and churches in flame, saying “I find it baffling and reprehensible that any Catholic facility would allow itself to be so egregiously misused and manipulated in a fashion that violates our religious principles…”

Steve Mosher speaks at the Catholic Identity Conference
The president of the Population Research Institute, Steven Mosher, discusses everything Catholics need to know about Communist China, the Church in China, the persecution of the Church and the Vatican's secret agreement with Beijing.
In light of increasing tensions between the U.S. and China, Americans have many questions. What will the secret Vatican agreement mean for the underground Church in China? Who will appoint Catholic bishops in China--the Communist government or the Vatican? How will this impact Washington's relations with Beijing? What happens next?
“I find it baffling and reprehensible that any Catholic facility would allow itself to be so egregiously misused and manipulated in a fashion that violates our religious principles, which call us to defend the rights of all people even those with whom we might disagree... [Saint Pope John Paul II] certainly would not condone the use of tear gas and other deterrents to silence, scatter or intimidate them for a photo opportunity in front of a place of worship and peace.”
- Archbishop of Washington, Wilton D. Gregory, on President Trump’s visit to the National Shrine in the wake of violent protests which left 50 Secret Service agents wounded and the historic St. John’s Church (within stone’s throw of the White House) in flames
Grace and Peace are always with you, in Jesus Christ, our only Lord. Although I am no longer among you in Washington D.C. as Apostolic Nuncio, I feel particularly united to all of you in this time of so grave moral and physical trials with which you are afflicted, and I wish to send you the sentiments of my deepest affection in Christ.
