    Vatican sees U.S. situation as hopeful, but at crossroadsInterview With Fr. Gabet, Msgr. Schmitz Brian Mershon March 22, 2006 (From the March 23 edition of The Wanderer) In light of reported activities at the highest levels of the Church to possibly find a canonical solution and regularization for the bishops and priests of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), The Wanderer decided to interview the U.S. and North American superiors for the Institute of Christ the King, Sovereign Priest (ICKSP), and the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP).

    Monsignor John Joseph Sweeny, 81, pastor of Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church in Santa Clara for three decades, has died. Held dear by parishioners because he embraced traditional Catholicism -- celebrating Latin Mass and keeping church open around the clock -- he had suffered from respiratory illness for many months and died Tuesday at his family home in San Andreas. Sweeny, who retired from Our Lady of Peace in 2002 at 78, was responsible for commissioning the landmark statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary that stands in front of the church next to Highway 101. The 30-foot-tall stainless steel...

    February 08, 2006, 7:54 a.m. Phyllis Schlafly Was Right Kathryn Jean Lopez, National Review, February 8, 2006The woman has earned a few “I Told You So”s. Most of America's girls typically don't get to celebrate Phyllis Schlafly during "Women's History Month," but they should. Mrs. Schlafly not only had the right idea when she fought the Equal Rights Amendment during the 70s, but predictions she made back then are still accurate today. Schlafly, of course, was head of the National Committee to Stop ERA. And stop it she did — the U.S. Constitution was not amended. She argued that...

    February 1, 2006 From: Deacon Keith Fournier For Distribution Attached is my public statement concerning my decision to disassociate from Traditional Catholic Reflections and Reports ( over its decision to call for the impeachment of the President and certain members of his cabinet today. I wish Stephen Hand only the Lords' best as he seeks to follow his personal conscience. I strongly disagree with his position. Too often, such disagreements between Christians are treated with hostility. That is not how we have approached this. We are joined as faithful Catholic Christians. We simply disagree - strongly - over this important...

    MARINE BARRACKS WASHINGTON, Washington D.C. (Jan.19) -- Morning colors started the day on a historical note here at Marine Barracks Washington, Jan. 19. Sgt. Clint Owens of Arlington, Tx. rang the bell and sounded the familiar tune using a valveless bugle - the first time the United States Marine Drum and Bugle Corps has used this traditional type of horn since after the Korean War. "We've reinstated these straight bugles for the same reason we still fly the 1801 flag at Evening Parades here at the 'Oldest Post of the Corps,'" said Chief Warrant Officer Brian Dix, D&B director.

    Good Riddance to Traditional Pensions Print Mail By James K. Glassman IBM announced last week that it would freeze the old-style pension plans it provides to more than 100,000 employees and instead offer an improved version of its 401(k) plan. This is no run-of-the-mill accounting change or cut-costing measure. It is a major philosophical and economic shift for a bellwether corporation. IIt means, in short, that International Business Machines is moving away from paternalism and giving workers more control over their own retirements. The U.S. government should do the same in reforming Social Security. The IBM decision is good news...

    Chronicles ^ | 12/16/05 | Aaron Wolf
    Reports in the national press that some modern megachurches are “closing” on Christmas in order to encourage families to “have a more personal experience on that day” have shocked many traditional Christians. The Chicago Tribune first reported this phenomenon on December 6, in an article about the godfather of megachurches, Willow Creek. Other articles followed, in USA Today and other papers, chronicling the trend throughout the United States. This is nothing new for Willow Creek, and the WillowCreeking of America is evidenced by the spread of this trend. Many, many churches, including Rockford’s Heartland Community Church (which recently purchased Colonial...

    Providence Brings Bishop Rifan to Una Voce Conference By BRIAN MERSHON PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Amidst buzz in Catholic circles about the possibility of an imminent freeing of the classical Roman rite of Mass, Bishop Fernando Rifan offered a Solemn Pontifical Mass from the throne and delivered the keynote address, highlighting the tenth anniversary conference of Una Voce America in Providence, R.I., November 18-20. And on Saturday morning, he treated Mass attendees with his musical playing ability by slipping down from his chair near the altar to play the organ during the communion of the faithful, as well as for the...

    Neutral crystal symbol may join traditional Red Cross emblems By Anton La Guardia, Diplomatic Editor (Filed: 20/09/2005) The Red Cross and its Islamic cousin, the Red Crescent, could soon be joined by a Red Crystal. The move is an attempt to create a neutral emblem in an age of growing religious strife, in which aid workers have been attacked and the Red Cross headquarters in Baghdad bombed. The symbol also seeks to resolve disputes that have kept some humanitarian organisations, mainly Israel's Magen David Adom, which uses the red Shield of David, outside the International Red Cross and Red Crescent...
  • Fried in Turkey: Is democracy on the outs?

    On June 8, 2005, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan visited President Bush in the White House. Among the topics the two discussed were freedom, democracy, and the rule of law. Speaking from the Oval Office, Bush declared Turkey's democracy to be "an important example for the people of the broader Middle East."Turkey remains an important ally of the United States despite recent bilateral tensions over the Iraq war and its aftermath. Both Republican and Democratic administrations have valued Turkey not only as a strategic military partner in the Cold War but also, in recent decades, as a democratic outpost...

    Facts everyone NEEDS to know about the "Traditional" Latin Mass FACT: Even the neotrad “Catholic Encyclopedia” admits the Latin Mass was a radical break with tradition! The REAL Traditional Roman Mass is the Greek Mass of the first three centuries as described by the Apostolic Constitutions and the Apology of St. Justin Martyr. The “Catholic Encyclopedia” written and published in 1913 by diehard "pre-Vatican II" neotrads, was forced to admit that its oh-so-precious “Latin Mass” was a radical and unprecedented break from tradition unlike any that had ever gone before. Just read these shocking quotes from the article “Liturgy of...
  • Future tense for old-time media - (on its way to "also ran" status?)

    The year is 2014. The press as we know it no longer exists. Traditional reporting has collapsed. News is churned out by the media giant Googlezon (Google has taken over many companies and joined forces with Amazon). The news consists of blogs, attitudes, discoveries, preferences, claims and random thoughts, gathered and shaped by computers and human editors, and fed back to ordinary people. The New York Times has become a newsletter read only by the elite and the elderly. This is the finding of a clever eight-minute mock documentary, "Epic 2014," produced by the fictional Museum of Media History (in...

  • If Civil Unions Deserve Special Breaks, Relationships Of All Kinds Do, Too - (true for all America!)

    Medford, Oregon - There's nothing so special about two gays living together, or two lesbians living together, that should cause Oregon's Legislature to treat them any differently than the members of any other special family unit. If those in non-married, non-traditional relationships, want the same benefits as marrieds, all Oregonians should all be treated the same. Discrimination by any other name is still discrimination. Gays and lesbians in Oregon have claimed that they are a discriminated class of Americans because they are denied the same legal status and the same tax and estate planning benefits as married, heterosexual couples.
