Victor Aubert on the Motu Proprio

An excellent commentary on the present persecution of tradition in the Roman Rite Church.

Victor Aubert, President of Academia Christiana

Since the promulgation of the Motu Proprio Traditionis Custodes, it seems that Pope Francis has decided to wage open warfare against communities committed to the traditional liturgy. The authoritarianism with which the Vatican is handling this issue has stunned many of the faithful and outside observers. At a time when practicing Catholics represent less than 5% of the population of Western Europe, such measures seem totally out of touch with reality. The West is sinking ever deeper into materialism and consumerism. Since our societies have left religion behind, Europeans have been wandering aimlessly in the realm of the absurd. The traditionalist spiritual movement is a remedy against nonsense. Is it not madness to condemn it so harshly? What can be the reasons that drive Pope Francis? Does he sincerely believe that the Church must be purified of its ritualism…

Pax Christi in Regno Christi


Saint Louis Catholic

Blessings to you all on this momentous and joyous feast day, the Feast of Christ the King. The title of this post is an old saying I lifted from a nice little pamphlet, The Reign of Christ the King–In Both Public and Private Life, by the late, great Michael Davies.

Men must look for the Peace of Christ in the Reign of Christ. Thus it has always been, since the Protoevengelium, when the Just God, also the Merciful God, announced to the first sinners the coming of the Messias. Since the Incarnation, there is One Man Who rules us. He rules all.

As soon as we face that Truth, all will make sense. Our King lives! He has conquered death! All things are subject to Him. Let us lovingly submit to such a King, and pray for the grace to live in this life according to His sovereign law…

Please, Someone Invent Flying Cars (Or Something)

This has almost nothing to do with the Church or Tradition. It’s simply me taking an opportunity to complain more or less publicly about the difficulty and danger, leading to great frustration, of driving on certain Interstate highways and sharing that space with the big trucks. Don’t get me wrong: I love my food and … Continue reading Please, Someone Invent Flying Cars (Or Something)

Remind You of Anyone?

In the seventh Lectio in today’s (9/3/21) Divine Office of Matins, (Divino Afflatu version, available online at, for the Feast of Pope St. Pius X, there is this little gem from a homily of St. Augustine, discussing John 21:15-17: “Those who have this purpose in feeding the flock of Christ, that they may have … Continue reading Remind You of Anyone?

REPOST: Ad Mariæ Gloriam: A Trope for Our Lady

French nuns record thousands of hours of Gregorian chant for new app

J-P Mauro – published on 03/02/21

The Neumz app compiles every Catholic chant of the 3-year liturgical calender.

A community of Benedictine nuns from France are using their God-given talents to spread their love of Gregorian chant. Since 2019, they have been recording every plainchant of the liturgical calendar and making them accessible on a brand new app, Neumz. More than just a music streaming service, Neumz offers invaluable educational elements to learn the holy chants and gain a deeper understanding of the Mass.

It’s no small order to record every chant in the Catholic songbook, as the liturgical calendar rotates on a three-year cycle. This means that the Neumz project, started in 2019, will not be complete until 2022. When finished, they expect to have over 7,000 hours of Gregorian…

None of This Should Surprise Any Catholic with a Modicum of Faith and at Least One Functioning Brain Cell

My good online friend (whom I’ve not yet actually met in person), the Timman, posted this excellent list from today. I pass it on for your consideration.

Saint Louis Catholic

But it is helpful to see when others see it:

“Here are Ten Things We Have Learned During the Covid Coup.

1 Our political system is hopelessly corrupt. Virtually all politicians are hopelessly corrupt. No political party can be trusted. They all can be, and have been, bought.


2 Democracy is a sham. It has been a sham for a very long time. There will never be any real democracy when money and power amount to the same thing.


3 The system will stop at nothing to hold on to its power and, if possible, increase its levels of control and exploitation. It has no scruples. No lie is too outrageous, no hypocrisy too nauseating, no human sacrifice too great.


4 So-called radical movements are usually nothing of the sort. From whatever direction they claim to attack the system, they are just pretending to do so…
