Vox Catholica

It’s time for another update with our friends from Regina Pilgrimages, who are currently making their way along the Camino de Santiago in Spain!


Palas de Rei – Melide (9 miles)

After enjoying a hearty Spanish breakfast, we went out to greet the day – and it was another cold and wet one! Today’s hike was not as long or arduous as the two previous days, but our sore legs and aching bones still had to bear the harsh Galician spring weather.

Our starting point was the Church of San Tirso in Palas de Rei. After a morning sermon and an opportunity to offer up the day’s walk for our intentions, we set off with joyful spirits – but no one more than our chaplain, Fr. Graves, whose spirits were not dampened by the pouring rain! The smile was still on his face and words of encouragement are always on his lips.

Our walk took us past the hamlet of O Coto, a simple village full of rustic charm, and whose name means “the top” or “the high place”. We also passed San Xulian do Camiño, Casanova, O Leboreiro, and Furelos, which boasts a beautiful medieval bridge, and finally we arrived at the day’s end point: the Church of St. Roch in Melide.

Today was very special because we visited the church where a miracle of the confessional took place. A sinner who always confessed the same grievous sins went to confession, and the exasperated priest told him that he would not grant him absolution. At that moment, a crucifix hanging in the church extended His hand, blessed the sinner and said to him, “Your sins are forgiven.” This very confessional is still there, as well as a replica of the miraculous crucifix that forgave the sinner! Such a beautiful story confirms God’s mercy and love for the truly repentant sinner.

We ended the day with Mass at the hotel and a very well-deserved dinner!

Buen Suceso Conferences Part IV: Suffering and Charity

Vox Catholica

In the fourth installment of the Buen Suceso Conference Series, Fr. Adam Purdy walks us through the relationship between Suffering and Charity.

Father shows us how, suffering reminds us that we are not created for this world, and how as members of the Mystical Body of Christ, each one of us may offer our sufferings, trials, and tribulations in this life, in union with Christ on the Cross, and apply those merits for the benefit of one another.

Father also shows us the different levels of suffering that one may offer, culminating in offering one's self as a Victim, in imitation of Christ for the Salvation of Souls.

This conference helps us more deeply understand WHY Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres' example is so important for us to understand in this age of degeneracy and apostasy, as well as helping us understand what she offered up for us, as a Victim Soul for the 20th Century.

Vox Catholica

When the feast of Nuestra Señora del Buen Suceso de la Purificación was established by Bishop Salvador de Ribera in 1611, he said:

“I command that a novena of preparation should be made…”

“Each day of the novena, you should arrange to have instructive sermons preached in the church to the people about the grandeur and virtue of Our Lady so that God and His Blessed Mother will be better known. Your Reverence should invite priests and friars from all the monasteries for this purpose.” - The Admirable Life of Mother Mariana vol. 2 p.77

The devotion to Our Lady of Buen Suceso of the Purification was intended specifically for our time - the 20th century. In the interim between the 16th and 17th centuries when Our Lady appeared to Mariana de Jesus Torres, and today, this devotion was largely forgotten by a great number of people, and went unknown in most of the world, until the 20th century. As a result, this novena has laid dormant until the past decade when priests and faithful from all around the world rekindled this devotion.

The original novena, as prescribed by Bishop de Ribera, called for the religious communities to preach on the spiritual life and the importance of religious vocations. The revival of this novena has taken a new form: each day at 5:00 am, priests and pilgrims process with a smaller statue of Our Lady of Buen Suceso and Mariana de Jesus Torres, to various religious houses, convents, monasteries and churches. This year, pilgrims brought the statue and the message of Our Lady of Buen Suceso of the Purification to the Augustinian Missionaries, the Carmelites, Sisters of Providence, the Jesuits, the Mercedarians, the Augustinian Sisters, the Dominican Sisters, the Sisters of Charity, the Clarisas, the Oblate Fathers of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, and the Franciscans.

The pilgrims who came from America, Canada, Austraila, Mexico, Switzerland, Triniadad, Poland, Chile, Argentina and all over the world. They came in a spirit of prayer and penance, with profound love for the Blessed Mother, to pray for the Church in this time of crisis.

"Civitas" Disrupts Multiple Celebrations of Protestant Revolt

James Austin

There has been no shortage of praise heaped on Martin Luther and his errors by the current Roman hierarchy, especially because 2017 is the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Revolution. It should be obvious that this is something Catholics definitely should not celebrate.

The Protestant Revolution:

  1. Was a satanic attack against Christ and His Church,
  2. Led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Catholics in persecutions against the Church all throughout Europe,
  3. Paved the way for the composition and dissemination of the erroneous ideas of J.J. Rosseau, John Calvin, Maximilien Robespierre, the Freemasons, various Judaising sects, Friedrich Engels, Karl Marx, John Locke etc. ad nauseam.

The shattering of Catholic hegemony that once protected Europe and Western civilization from degeneracy and decay should never be celebrated, and especially not within any Catholic church, anywhere. Yet, here in the "Upside-Down", this is what we are seeing everywhere.

Ecumenism, sacrilege, and relativism have run rampant in the Church and the West in general, ever since the "Second Pentecost" of the Second Vatican Council. But not all have fallen under the heavy, opium-like spell that the "smoke of satan" (Pope Paul VI, 1972) brought into the Church. Indeed, there are still some Catholics in Europe who, armed with the truth, are standing up against these sacrilegious celebrations of Protestantism.

One group called "Civitas," a French Catholic Nationalist group seeking the restoration of the Catholic State, has been organizing protests against these outrages, and has been quite successful.

On October 31st, Civitas disrupted a celebration of the Protestant Revolution in the Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula, in Brussels. The 11 youths assembled at the front of the church, linking arms and praying the Rosary in reparation for the outrage being committed.

Civitas members were also handing out flyers saying:

“Our cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula is a Catholic edifice built by our fathers to be the House of God, for the celebration of the holy Mass, for the praise of God and of the saints. The occupation of our cathedral by the Protestants to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Reform is therefore a profanation.” 
...
“This terrible revolution was a great drama for Christian society and for the salvation of souls. And the Lutheran errors are still heresies today because the Truth is eternal.”

The Protestant "minister" leading the celebration was Steven Fuite of the United Protestant Church of Belgium. "Pastor" Fuite is a classical hard-leftist, homosexualist and revolutionary, touting the normal garbage about how "diversity is our strength." Fuite actually said the following about the differences between Protestants and Catholics:

“Our unity is placed essentially in respect for differences. Without the other who is different, who thinks differently, who acts differently, I don’t exist, I am nothing.”

When you hear the maxim "liberalism is a mental disorder," think of Steven Fuite.

According to LifeSiteNews:

Fuite told Le Soir that his church is a “truly democratic structure” that permits women and homosexuals to be ministers and blesses homosexual couples.

Can we give these kids a round of applause for standing up to this garbage?

This ecumenical abomination at St. Michael and St. Gudula is not the only event Civitas has disrupted. As a matter of fact, they've been quite busy.

A second such event took place at St. Irene Church in Lyon, France just this past week, wherein the demonstrators used the exact same tactics of simply praying the Rosary at the front of the  church in an effort to make reparation for this offense against God.

This second event in Lyon was rife with irony, as the theme for the celebration of Protestantism was “from conflict to communion, together in hope.” It didn't seem to work out too well for them.

Alain Escada, President of Civitas, wrote of the event:

"Militants of the Movement of Catholic Youth of France and French Youth Civitas united to prevent an ecumenical celebration in St Irene Church in Lyon and to publicly rectify this offense to God and His Church.
"Cardinal Barbarin was part of this blasphemous circus organized by, among others, Protestant pastors. Militant Catholics could not allow them to get away with this scandalous event.”

In response to this Catholic Action against sacrilege, Régine Maire, former Delegate for Ecumenism in Lyon, said:

“It’s such a pity. It was supposed to be [a] time of peace and brotherhood in a parish context [...] And to involve the Virgin Mary like that is appalling. Our Protestant friends were dumbfounded and dismayed.”

Civitas has disrupted many more sacrilegious events, including a debate on “Otherness and encountering the other” organized by the Diocesan Service of Muslim Relations in the Church of the Trinity in Bordeaux, as well as an occasion wherein Rivon Krygier, the Rabbi of the Adath Shalom Masorti community, was invited by Cardinal André Vingt-Trois to speak at a Lenten service at Notre-Dame in Paris.

In this rising tide of Globalism, Marxism, liberalism, Protestantism, homosexualism and all kinds of other anti-Christ "isms," it's nice to see Catholic youth taking a stand for God and for their country. It's only a matter of time before truly Catholic Action comes to America, and pays a visit to Archbishop Bambera and his depraved "ministry" in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
