O most holy Virgin
who didst find favor in God’s sight and hast become His Mother;
O Virgin, immaculate in body and soul,
in thy faith and in thy love, look down with pity on the wretched
who in our need seek thy powerful protection.
The evil serpent on whom was cast the primal curse
continues, alas, to attack and ensnare the poor children of…Continue
Prayer to Saint Barbara
you are stronger than the tower of a fortress
and the fury of hurricanes.
Do not let lightning hit me, thunder frighten me
or the roar of canons jolt my courage or bravery.
Stay always by my side so that I may confront
all the storms and battles of my life
with my head held high and a serene…Continue

O St. Joseph, I…Continue

O my Jesus,
thru the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
I offer Thee my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings of this day,
in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world;
I offer them for all the intentions of Thy Sacred Heart,
the salvation of souls,
the reparation for sins,
the reunion of all Christians;
I offer them for the intentions of our bishops,
and all faithful in the apostleship of prayer,
Glorious St Luke,
you are a dear and near friend of God,
you were a physician,

and all those who are undergoing or going to undergo any procedure today and the coming days/months,
that the Lord may preserve them and strengthen them in faith,
and that He may bless them and keep them safe, as well as all those involved in the procedures they are…Continue
I just came back from Oxford (I'm attending some lectures - The Great Ruins: Six English Medieval Abbeys in Context) Quite interesting but I read out that the general public can still attend lectures and classes (not tutorials) really cheaply - Basically you could study full time using Oxford University free / min cost Lectures and classes - cool for students taking a year out I thought...Especially if you wanted to learn beginner Latin and Greek or Medieval Philosophy, Logic, Metaphysics…Continue
"Let us today entreat the most Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Joseph, not only for ourselves, but also for our families, for all those who surround us. That they may come to the light of Our Lord Jesus Christ who know Him but little, who do not obey him, who distance themselves from Him. Let us have pity on all those souls who do not know the King of love and of glory – in Whom we have the happiness to believe, Whom we have the happiness to love."
--From the sermon of Msgr. Lefebvre on…Continue
On Thursday, 23rd October 2018, I trundled across the M4 into Wales - to The Church of St. David, in Llanthony an ancient chapel that provided a recuperation place and a haven of peace for the tired St. David (Sant Dewi in welsh) in the 6th Century, after serving the missions across the mountains of Wales on foot and sometimes on a mule. I was distracted by so many earthly concerns that I'd like to request prayers for the intentions of that pilgrimage together with…Continue
Dear Crusaders, beginning tomorrow, I´ll be away for a week on retreat and will be hearing about St. Thomas Aquinas´ "Love as the fundament of all virtues."
I´ll try as much as possible to pray with you in spirit the daily prayers and novenas offline, most esp. the Rosaries of the Perpetual Rosary group.
A friend gave me this idea:
send a weekly postcard to His Holiness to ask him to join in prayer for Vigano.Continue
Today am visiting the relics of St. Bernadette at the Cologne Cathedral on its tour over Germany.. I'm taking all your petitions and prayers with me.
"The faithful should unite with the Church in this her intention, and offer to God their fasting and abstinence for the purpose of obtaining worthy ministers of the word and of the Sacraments, and true pastors of the people." -- http://catholicismhastheanswer.com/quatuor-tempora-the-ember-days/…
We need your prayers, too. Thank you.
They are launching an "art contest" on it suggesting anyone can send their entry, whether it be like Angela Merkel´s pants and jacket, or even Madonna´s body suit,…Continue

yesterday on the 18th August I took a pilgrimage to the Carmelite monastery in Aylesford where St Simon Stock received the scapular from Our Lady of Mount Carmel in a vision. She promises that those who wear the brown scapular will not perish in the eternal fire.
Back from a three-day conference held at our SSPX premises in Bonn on the Islamisation of Europe, why and how it slowly developed, the impact it has brought and further consequences Europe has to face and to deal with.
It is very alarming and it seems that the majority of Europeans aren´t concerned at all.
One lecturer clearly outlined how this Islamation process was planned from abroad by non-Europeans, and how it has been gradually implemented for the one goal: the…Continue

Dear Mr. Thompson,
In your article
Archbishop Lefebvre’s surprising legacy
printed in the
Catholic Herald of 22nd June 2018, you accuse Archbishop Lefebvre of
stubbornness. Indeed, he was stubborn, but his was the stubbornness of…
The list of prayer intentions for the St David Lewis pilgrimage had several immediate answers: a baby was saved from abortion, an apprenticeship is being discussed, the headaches of a gentleman with a brain tumour are not related to the tumour...
Lord God almighty through the intercession of the Saints of the Reformation grant us the miracles that will save our souls . Amen.
St. Martha – July 29
Fr. Paul Sretenovic
Today, July 29, is the Feast of St. Martha, sister of St. Mary Magdalene and St. Lazarus. We find her in the Scriptures three times, twice directly and once indirectly.
In the first instance, Martha questions Jesus about her sister, who was sitting listening at the Lord’s feet while Martha was busy preparing the meal in the Gospel of St. Luke:
“Martha was busy about much serving. She stood…Continue
