Open Letter to Traditionalists

Forty years ago my family quit the Novus Ordo, when I was 13 years old. I thank God to this day for this wonderful event, for if we had not left Novus Ordo then, I would have probably quit the Church as well and lost my faith. A priest who came through occasionally to say the Tridentine Mass at the time remarked to my mother: “Now you have peace of mind.”

Over the next few months I would like to take some time to comment on the Great Apostasy, but more importantly on how we must all come together in order to end the Great Apostasy. I will not waste your time and mine on comments on the evils of Vatican II. I believe we are all agreed that we want to roll the clock back to before Vatican II opened and have a Church that does not even know of Vatican II. And let us not waste our time on the evils of the Novus Ordo, which Archbishop Lefebvre called a bastard mass. Rather I would like to focus on how to become truly Catholic in a world that is worse than pagan. And I won’t waste your time discussing the multitude of evils in the world today, you know them as well as I do and wish they could be conquered and ended. We know that all will be conquered and that the whole world will convert and become Catholic. It is this glorious day we are praying and working for.

So how do we bring about an end to the Great Apostasy? First of all we must end the effects of the Great Apostasy in our own hearts and souls. Whether you are 22 or 82, you were brought up in a lax unsettled world that permitted things it should not have. And unfortunately the Church went right along for over a century allowing things it once fought and relaxing things it should not have. Let us remember that ’40’s and ’50’s lukewarmness in the Church brought apostasy in the ’60’and ’70’s. It is time to return to the constant discipline of the Church from the time of the Apostles to the century of Modernism, the 20th Century.

Saint Pius X put the following question to some of his Cardinals: “What is the one thing we most need, today, to save society?” After hearing their answers, he said: “The most necessary thing of all at this time is for every parish to possess a group of laymen who will be at the same time virtuous, enlightened, resolute, and truly apostolic.” Today we have no parishes, because these laymen were not found.  It is time that each Catholic, lay and cleric to become fervent Catholics of the type Saint Pius X desires. At least one private prophecy says that the greatest saints will live in our times. We are called to be those great saints. Pope Pius XI reminded us in his Encyclical on Saint Francis de Sales that we are all called to Christian perfection. Anything less than striving for perfection will not bring an end to the Great Apostasy, but rather an unfortunate end to our soul. Jesus said: “Be ye perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect.” (Matthew 5:48)

Saint Teresa of Liesieux said: “You cannot be half a saint, you must either be a whole saint or no saint at all.” The most important thing each and every one of us must do is become a saint and yes, a great saint. Half measures simply will not do. Saint John Eudes says:Therefore I say, and this will immediately be clear to anyone who gives a little thought to the truths I have outlined, that all Christians ought to be martyrs, if not in actual fact, at least in intention and in will. So true is this, that if they are not martyrs of Jesus Christ, they will be martyrs of Satan.” There is no middle ground, so let us become martyrs for Jesus Christ in spirit. Let us learn the spirit of martyrdom.

More to come.
