Dear Crusaders, beginning tomorrow, I´ll be away for a week on retreat and will be hearing about St. Thomas Aquinas´ "Love as a psychological fundament of 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.
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.

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
Yesterday, Sacred Heart Friday, one of the new ordained priests in Zaitzkofen last June 30, Fr. Victor Pasichnik, a Russian, came to celebrate Holy Mass in our Chapel. I included every Crusader´s intention therein as I usually do during the Canon.
In his first Mass in Zaitzkofen last Sunday, the Feast of the Most Precious Blood, his very 'colourful' life was highlighted, very moving. He underwent diverse challenges (nearly persecutions) under the communists. Yesterday, he mentioned at a…
Confident, humble and persevering prayer is infallible, as the Church teaches us. What better prayer to pray daily than a…Continue
Act of Faith
O MY GOD, I firmly believe that Thou art one God in Three Divine Persons, Father, Son and Holy Ghost. I believe that Thy Divine Son became Man, and died for our sins, and that He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe these and all the truths which the Holy Catholic Church teaches, because Thou hast revealed them, Who canst neither deceive…
" ... CHRIST'S FINGERS hold His Mother’s right hand, yet they rest quite loosely there. In this lies another lesson. Though Mary is His Mother, He is her God. To Him she owes all her graces. This holding of hands is also a symbol of love and a union of wills. We hold the hands of those whom we love and, as St. Thomas Aquinas says: “the effect of love is a union of wills.” We see a similar joining of hands in Matrimony, where “they two shall be in…Continue
The discourse is so moving, but never without truth. This is a meditative agony of a concerned man of God.

Canticle of Simeon * Luke 2:29-32
2:29 Now thou dost dismiss thy servant, O Lord, ☩ * according to thy word in peace;
2:30 Because my eyes have seen * thy salvation,
2:31 Which thou hast prepared * before the face of all peoples:
We praise thee, O God, * we acknowledge thee to be the Lord.
All the earth doth worship thee, * the Father everlasting.

O God, Whose praise the martyred Innocents on this day confessed, not by speaking, but by dying: destroy in us all the evils of sin, that our life also may proclaim by deeds Thy faith which our tongue professes. Through our Lord.

Prayer to St. Andrew
as your Patron Saint
St Gregory was bishop of Neocaesarea in Asia Minor and was famous for the holiness of his life and his wisdom, but even more so for the numerous miracles which he wrought. Even during his lifetime he was known as “Thaumaturgus”, the wonderworker. His faith was one of the sort that “can move mountains”. As a disciple of the great Origin he defended the doctrine of the Church against the heretical Paul of Samosata. He suffered greatly in the persecution of Decidus and then from the barbarian…Continue

Today marks the Apparition of Our Lady to the three children who were falsely detained on that very day of August 13, thus the series of the 13s was broken.
This day and month will always have a special personal meaning to me.
A blessed Saturday to all Crusaders, their families and friends!
