Michael Matt teams up with the Oken Rekishi Kenkyukai in Tokyo for a weekend conference on the principles of the French Revolution and how they impact our world still today, 230 years later.
Michael's talk (simultaneously translated into Japanese) answers the questions: what can Catholics today learn from the French Vendeans who resisted the French Revolution to become the original Traditional Catholics?
What can the remnant of Catholic believers around the world today learn from the "first responders" against the New World Order in the Vendee as well as from “Hidden Christians” of Japan who kept the faith for over 250 years — without the mass and without priests?
A Letter From Rome . . .
A LARGE NUMBER of churches have welcomed the traditional Mass in Rome during the fifty years that have passed since the promulgation of the Novus Ordo Missae of Paul VI (3 April 1969), but the one that is most distinguished for the unbroken continuity with which the ancient Roman Rite has been celebrated there since 1969 is the Church of San Giuseppe a Capo le Case, on the Via Francesco Crispi, near the more famous Via Sistina.
The Blood of Christ, to which we owe our redemption, gives the life of each Christian a sacrifical character, as a participation in the immolation which Christ made of himself on Calvary. It is intimately linked to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, which is the unbloody renewal of the Sacrifice of the Cross. And it is not without significance that the Church of San Giuseppe a Capo, so intimately linked to the relic of the Precious Blood, has the privilege of being the most ancient Church of Rome, where there is a regular celebration of the Holy Mass according to the ancient Roman rite.

Reporting from Tokyo, Michael J. Matt comments on cultures largely untouched by Christianity and how they differ from, say, Europe.
As Europe and America prepare to banish Christ from their borders, what can we learn from countries such as Japan that never embraced Him? Since Catholicism is, according to its critics, responsible for all the evil in the world, is this a good thing for Japan? Do the Catholic-bashing revisionists have a point?
