Catholic Catechism: Are Some Sins More Severe Than Others?

Vox Catholica

In this Catholic Catechism class, Father reviews what we have learned in previous classes. Namely, whether virtue can exist in a soul where mortal sin is present, the distinction between Natural Virtues and Supernatural Virtues, the Formed Virtues (With Charity) and the Informed Virtues (Without Charity).

After this brief review, father continues with our study of the Summa Theologica with Question 73: On The Comparison of one sin to another.

The Question discussed can be found at: http://www.newadvent.org/summa/2073.htm

At 27:00, Father discusses how Catholics should deal with homosexuality and homosexual persons (people suffering from same-sex attraction). Father lays out a charitable way of leading these individuals to the life of grace.

Catholic Catechism: Distinguishing Types of Sins

Vox Catholica

In this Catechism lesson from the late 1980's, Father teaches us about the different kinds of sin according to the method of Saint Thomas Aquinas.

Father covers the differences between Venial and Mortal sins, sins of the Flesh and sins of the Spirit, what constitutes a Mortal sin, the sins of the Angels and much more.

This catechism follows very closely Question 72 in the First Part of the Second Part of the Summa Theologica of Saint Thomas Aquinas.

Question 72 specifically asks the following questions:

  • Whether sins differ in species according to their objects?
  • Whether spiritual sins are fittingly distinguished from carnal sins?
  • Whether sins differ specifically in reference to their causes?
  • Whether sin is fittingly divided into sin against God, against oneself, and against one's neighbor?
  • Whether the division of sins according to their debt of punishment diversifies their species?
  • Whether sins of commission and omission differ specifically?
  • Whether sins are fittingly divided into sins of thought, word, and deed?
  • Whether excess and deficiency diversify the species of sins?
  • Whether sins differ specifically in respect of different circumstances?

The question from the Summa Theologica being discussed here can be found online, here: http://www.newadvent.org/summa/2072.htm

Fr. John O'Connor: The Marxist Subversion of the Catholic Church

Vox Catholica

In this talk, Fr. John O'Connor O.P. lays out the destruction, subversion and infiltration of the Catholic Church by revolutionary Marxists and communists as well as Homosexuals.

Father O'Connor shares his experience as a seminarian, and a priest seeing the hierarchy of the church being taken over by "Gay" Sodomite priests, and his prophetic words ring more true today then they ever have. This talk, which was given in the early 90's, explains how we now have a Pope, who stands by while homosexual couples are blessed, who denies the existence of hell, and who supports communist and marxist ideals within society.

Father O'Connor also exposes the Radical Left-Wing agenda of the subverted, post Vatican II Church, showing how Communist leaders such as Bella Dodd, sent these leftists into our Catholic seminaries, which has brought about an almost near destruction of the Church in the West.

Father John O’Conner was a Dominican priest, born in Chicago in 1929. He studied at Notre Dame University and joined the Order of Preachers in 1949. He obtained degrees in philosophy and theology, and was ordained to the Catholic priesthood in San Francisco in 1955. He taught in Catholic colleges in Madison, Wisconsin and Austin, Texas from 1955 to 1966. He was associate pastor in New Orleans from 1966-1969, and since then, as a Dominican preacher, he has travelled over 300,000 miles over the United States and Canada giving missions and retreats to the laity.

Bishop Tissier: On Marriage and The Family - 1992

Vox Catholica

This is an INCREDIBLE and previously un-published talk of Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais given in Ridgefield Connecticut on July 10, 1992 about the Christian Family and Education.

Since the family is the basic building block of society, without strong families, we will not have strong societies. 

The good Bishop speaks of the great Islamic Replacement happening in Western Countries (and many years before this became a main-stream talking point) and warns that if Christians do not have big families, we will lose our societies. 

Here are some notable quotations:

2:30 And so what the Conciliar Church no longer wants, and what the Conciliar Church has excommunicated, is not only the true bishops and the true priests, it is not only the Mass of Tradition, but it is all the bastions of the Catholic Faith.  I quote only the words of Cardinal Ratzinger… Several years ago Cardinal Ratzinger said with Hans Urs Von Balthazar, a heretical theologian, “we must say the must urgent thing today is the demolition of the bastions” he said. A cardinal. “The dismantling of the bastions”. And what are these bastions, the bastions of the catholic faith? The bastions of Catholicism? They are the Catholic Family, Catholic Schools, Catholic Churches, Catholic Mass, Catholic Catechisms, Catholic Civil Laws, Catholic Governments, and finally Catholic States. On the contrary, we are for these bastions. It is a mission of the priestly society of Saint Pius the X, to rebuild these bastions of the Catholic Faith. To rebuild these destroyed bastions of the Catholic Faith. And we have begun with the Catholic Mass and the Priesthood 22, 23 years ago in Switzerland with Archbishop LeFebvre. We have continued with our chapels, seminaries naturally, with our priories, because the priests must live a life of community… But this work would be totally useless if it is not continued with catholic families and catholic schools.

11:45 The Catholic Family is normally, if god allows it, permits it, the large family. A family with many children. Christian England, Christian France, Christian America, must not die for want of children. Must not die Islamized, oh yes. This is a great danger in France especially, and also in your country (America) to die Islamized. Because the only families with many children are Traditionalist families, and Islamic families. It is so in France. And so the Conciliar race is an endangered species. Deo Gratias, I would say. But it is dangerous, the Islamic people are very many, naturally. So only Tradition, only strong convictions are fruitful.

It is a fact that demonstrate it. Liberalism, Conciliarism, lead to sterility. They are sterile. The fruits of Vatican II, it is childless families, dead families. And especially the root of the problem is the new conception of marriage given by Vatican II. It is in Vatican II!

35:34 It is very sad to see the new type of christian family. Husband, wife, a boy and a girl. It is the typical family. A typical modern family. Television everywhere, with the advertising. A husband a wife, and a boy and a girl. It is false! Once I was driving my car and before me was another car. On the front seat was Mr. DuPont and Mrs. DuPont, you know, and on the back seat, was the dog. The model of the new Christian family. Of the Conciliar family. Mr., Mrs., and the dog. What an awful idea of marriage.

39:14 People marry, and especially in the Conciliar families, and also in the non-Catholic families, people marry and say “we will have two children, and only two children!” And if they say this, with a real will of doing so, this marriage is invalid. Invalid. They have no right to limit the number of their children. To limit so rigorously without any grave reason, makes this invalid.

40:05 …Even if we must be criticized, be mocked, be laughed at in the streets… “What is this family with 7, 10, 15 children? How ridiculous! What a scandal!” Even if we must be pointed out and called insane and mad by these grave diggers of marriage and family.

41:20 Homosexuality and Civil Unions…

48:00 With Vatican II and the [doctrine of] religious liberty; “with all false religions” said Archbishop LeFebvre, “bring with themselves immorality”. In the Islamic religion, it is well known that one husband can have up to 5 wives. It is allowed. And also, protestant denominations do not recognize the indissolubility of marriage. Many people who are our “separated brethren” say “we get married, but if it does not work, we have the possibility of divorce.” It is this saying that makes of this marriage, and invalid marriage also. Invalid. To marry with the idea of divorcing if it doesn’t work. It is invalid. So dear friends, let’s have the true idea of marriage. And let us react against these awful dangers that threaten the Christian marriage. Let us fight against these grave diggers of marriage. 

50:28 Catholic People need Catholic laws, and Catholic government. And here in America, why could that not be the case? In some states in America, there is almost a majority of Catholics. Why could it not exist a catholic state? And Catholic laws, that is laws which encourage the religion, marriage, the family, schools. Yes? We must fight for this ideal of the Catholic State. The reign of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the political life. In the social life. You must understand, our lord must not reign only in the churches and in the sacristies, no. He must reign everywhere. In society, in the politics, through our laws which correspond to the gospel. This is normal. It is our fight. Our Catholic Fight.

Fr. Schmidberger: Archbishop Lefebvre and the Modern Popes

Vox Catholica

Father Franz Schmidberger, former Superior General of the Society of Saint Pius X, discusses the relationship between Archbishop Marcel LeFebvre, and the modern Popes. 

Ever since the Second Vatican council, tension with Rome has been very high, as Liberals and Marxists hijacked the Church, and broke with the 2,000 year Tradition of the Roman Catholic Church, and Archbishop LeFebvre stood up and defended the truth against those who were trying to destroy the church.

Father Schmidberger discusses the backstory of Vatican II and the changes implemented by John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul II,  and Benedict.

Since this lecture was given on March 12, 2006, Pope Francis had not yet been elected Pope, and some of the new developments are obviously not discussed.

Father Schmidberger divides his talk into four parts: 

He starts by talking about the ministry of Saint Peter (The Pope). 

The second part discusses the attitude of Archbishop Lefebvre and the SSPX towards these modern (conciliar) popes. 

The Third part asks weather these popes are TRUE popes (looking into the ideas of Sedevacantism). 

The Fourth Part draws some conclusions, and takes a look towards the future.

*Video* A Sign Of Hope 1986 - Saint Thomas Aquinas Seminary

Vox Catholica

 

In 1986 Father (now Bishop) Williamson who was rector of Saint Thomas Aquinas Seminary, was interviewed by Fr. Bourmaud along with various seminarians in attendance at the time.

This vintage documentary was filmed in Ridgefield, Connecticut, where Saint Thomas Aquinas Seminary was located until 1988.

The seminary has since moved to Dillwyn, Virginia, where a new seminary has been erected to accommodate the large number of vocations growing out of the Traditional Catholic Communities in North America. Details on the new seminary can be found at www.STAS.org.

The buildings you see on this video, in Ridgefield, Connecticut, are still in use by the SSPX, as Saint Ignatius Retreat House, and has a growing chapel there under the patronage of Christ the King.

At Saint Ignatius Retreat House, there are retreats for men and women held every month, and it is a great way to refocus your life, with the Traditional Catholic faith as your bedrock. To learn more about Saint Ignatius Retreat House, visit www.SSPXRidgefield.com.

In this video, Fr. Bourmaud Talks with several priests who were seminarians in 1986, including Fr. Johnson, Fr. Robinson, Fr. Albert (OP) Fr. Dean and Fr. Kimball. More information on the SSPX is available online at www.SSPX.org

*Video* Econe: The Priests For Tomorrow

Vox Catholica

In the wake of the devastation of the Second Vatican Council, one bishop, Archbishop Marcel LeFebvre, stood up against these changes and held fast to the Catholic Faith of all time. In 1970, Archbishop LeFebvre founded the Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX) as a religious order, operating within the Catholic Church, with provisional approbation from +François Charrière, Bishop of Lausanne, Geneva and Fribourg.

The provisional status of the SSPX was rescinded by Bishop Charrière's successor, Bishop Pierre Mamie, and Archbishop LeFebvre was unable to appeal this un-just decision.

Although some say that the SSPX is in an "irregular" canonical position, it is evident that the Society is Catholic, teaches the true doctrine of the Catholic Church, and celebrates the Mass of All time as approved by the Church.

More details on the Society can be found at www.SSPX.org Now, more than ever, it is more and more evident that Archbishop LeFebvre was right, and that the church (or at least her leaders) has gone astray.

Pope Francis has recently denied the existence of Hell, and been presented with "Dubia" about his apostolic exhortation "Amoris Laetitia," and hundreds of other theologians have signed a "Correction Filialis" which accuses the Pope of allowing the propogation of heresy.

People like Jesuit priest Father James Martin run around the church actively normalizing the "LGBT Community," and encouraging the destruction of the family, and the USCCB has been caught funding Pro-LGBT and Pro-Abortion left-wing activist groups. We need faithful groups like the SSPX now, more than ever during this crisis in the world and in the Church.
