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.
On Vatican II: Lefebvre from 1972...
Editor’s Note: NEWSFLASH: Being ‘rad trad’ is now very much en vogue. I guess nobody wants to be on a losing team, and Team Bergoglio will surely never make the playoffs. Strange days indeed! Folks who were defending the regime just a few months ago are suddenly presenting themselves as traditionalists who’ve more or less been here all along. Good for them! Welcome to the front, boys. Still, natural justice impels us to recall that the pioneers of Traditionalism didn’t need to be on any winning team. In fact most of them were losers for Christ, who died excommunicated or otherwise disgraced for the lonely stand they took. But history will cast them as the heroes they surely were—men and women who didn’t require a buffoon like Francis to help them recognize a massive problem in the Church that had first outed itself in the Vatican, not in 2018, but sixty years earlier in 1958. Francis is hardly the ramrod. His arrival on the scene was as inevitable as sunrise. But now that resisting Modernist popes is all the rage, some Internet heroes are out there denouncing men such as Archbishop Lefebvre for doing fifty years ago what they finally mustered the courage to do just a few months ago. This article is dedicated to the pioneer traditionalists—men who did their Catholic duty and became traditionalists long before Traditionalism was cool. Let’s never forget. MJM

Michael J. Matt
Viganò, Freemasonry and the Lefebvre Question
At this most critical moment in the life of the Church, we call on all traditional Catholics—including the priestly orders of the Society of St. Pius X, the Fraternity of St. Peter and the Institute of Christ the King—to prayerfully consider expressing public solidarity with Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò since the situation is now critical.

What's this? Just the most brilliant and theologically sound consideration of the question of sedevacantism in the history of the universe.
The Canonization Crisis
Natural explanations are plainly available for the “miracles” attributed to the intercession of Paul VI and Oscar Romero, none of which actually involved an outright and instantaneous cure in the first place as opposed to avoiding a medical risk, however serious, and reaching a good outcome while under aggressive, state-of-the art medical treatment… Read the Full article HERE

Yo Soy El Camino: A Journey Back in Time
It only makes sense, therefore, that the Camino is full of love. As I mentioned before, pilgrims take care of each other. The hospitaleros at the parish albergues also feed travelers nourishing meals for often no more than a donation, offer blankets, suggest advice about the best tactics to endure the path for one more day, invite everyone to pray in common at Mass and before meals...To Read the Full Story, SUBSCRIBE
Father Celatus ...The Last Word…
Folks, the fact is that while my Bergoglio Barometer leads me to believe that Jorge is likely an anti-pope, neither I nor anyone else can have absolute certitude in this matter. We leave that to divine providence to someday manifest. Meanwhile all traditional Catholics, regardless of their personal views on the validity of Francis, should be united in opposing and exposing the damage that Bergoglio is doing to the Church...

Why can’t we figure out what is really going on? We have heard, since the last American general election, the term “fake news” being thrown around, that we can’t trust what we’re reading and hearing. It has been a huge success at creating fear and distrust, division and contention, as it was intended. We start to wonder if we can even trust our own eyes. We wonder what is going on in the Vatican and the world, and are at such a point of confusion and self-doubt that we feel we can no longer know up from down.
For many, it has the result of driving us away from public engagement altogether. If nothing you read or see on TV can be trusted – if we get conflicting and contradictory messages even from the pope – isn’t it time to just retreat? To give up trying to figure it out, and build a private enclave where we don’t have to think about it anymore?
