Bugnini and a Rabbi Papal Knight
I am very interested in knowing exactly of what consequence it is that the 1962 missal was conjured up by Freemason Bugnini.
This is stated in one of your articles, The Motu Proprio, After the Emotions, but the only information that I could find about the difference between the older version(s) and the '62 Missal were the addition of St. Joseph, the elimination of the Confiteor and some other futile details. Is there anything truly of substance?
Thank you for your time, your articles, and your steadfastness.
Rev. Fr. J.H.,
Thank you for your interest and kind encouragement.
TIA asked an expert on Liturgy to make an analysis of the 1962 Missal. We hope that it will not take him very long to finish his study.
It will be posted on our site, and we will be glad to forward it to you when it is online.

Prayers for the Schismatic Convert
I read with interest and joy the letter from the gentleman who is planning to convert from the Orthodox church to Catholicism. Your answers to his questions were informative and well written.
I would like to suggest a traditionalist Catholic website that I feel would be of great benefit to all converts and those returning to Tradition. It is run by a staunch and excellent Catholic, Dr. Carol Byrne, and contains a wealth of information.
Those visiting the site may enjoy a splendid Guided Tour of the Mass, and will find the usual Catholic prayers and devotions in both English and Latin. Also available are the Kyriales for the traditional Mass and the Propers of the Mass for many of the Sundays and Feast Days of the Church.
That is just a small listing of what is available on the site! Here is the link to the site for those who may wish to visit it: http://www.communigate.co.uk/ne/tradition/index.phtml
My very best wishes to Mr. G.H. May he become a strong and fervent Catholic!

Rabbi Becomes Papal Knight
I just received this news. Benedict XVI bestowed the papal knighthood on ADL rabbi Klenicki back on May 2007. The ADL has always been a fierce anti-Catholic force. The Jews have never recognized Our Lord as the Savior, nor do they regard Him as the Messiah.
In fact they hate Him. The Talmud shows it clearly!
After the Last Supper Christ established the New Covenant, the Jews had rejected it.
There is only one Messiah. 'No one comes to the Father but by Me,' He said.
Wake up folks! What else can I say?
Vatican II is a fraud! The sooner you recognize this the better you will be.
Eternity is a long time!!
St. Joseph of Cupertino and Studies
My mother always told me to pray to St. Joseph of Cupertino when I had exams to do... Is he regarded as a patron saint of exams? The prayer began: "O great St. Joseph of Cupertino." Do you know of this prayer?
I am now more than 60 but have used this prayer whenever my 3 sons have had exams.
One is now a PHD in English language, one is an RC deputy head in Primary education and the third is a trainee accountant. Muum and I have said many prayers throughout their schooling and careers.
Is he a patron Saint to do with education?
Receive our compliments for the help St. Joseph of Cupertino gave to your sons, and for the success they have achieved.
We don't know the mentioned prayer, but if you send it to us we will share it with our readers and perhaps incorporate it into the prayers on our website.
St Joseph Cupertino is a patron saint of students and test-takers because even though Joseph had little education, could barely read or write, he received such a gift of spiritual knowledge and discernment that he could solve intricate questions. Because of his frequent levitations in prayers, he is also the patron saint of aviators and pilots.
We hope your testimony will encourage more students to pray to him.

More Graces from St. Philomena
I just wish to confirm the history of St. Philomena as being a powerful saint before God as absolutely true and real! She is just absolutely amazing, and has helped me once again in the most difficult financial crisis, where my husband and I thought we would have to lose our home, due to his compensation income being unjustly terminated.
I prayed desperately to her yesterday for help, in spite of feeling there was none, confirmed by our advisors. Unexpectedly today, we received a phone call stating that the decision had been changed and my husband's income payments would be completely restored.
Nobody can believe this, as it is extremely rare for this to occur. We had been told that we would have to wait 4-5 months before we could fight this decision in Court, and even then there would be no guarantees.
St. Philomena is definitely the saint of finances and real estate as well as many other things.
I am so grateful to her. I love her so much!
St. John Baptist de la Salle
Your commentary on this great Saint's apostolate and the description of the obstacles he faced struck a chord with me as I saw, in the article, so many parallel's with the work of my late pastor, Fr. Gommar De Pauw, in his founding and advancing of the Catholic Traditionalist Movement and his championing of the Traditional Latin Mass and the teaching of the traditional Catholic postion and theology.
The most particular parallels between the two cases brought out by your article are the indifference and sycophancy of the plurality of contemporary clergy on the wrong road, the scorn of most people, and the resulting apparent utter futility of the situation in the eyes of the world. Let us hope that the parallels ultimately continue, and that both apostolates finally end with similar successes.
Mother Teresa Praying to Buddha
I can assure you that Mother Teresa in that picture is in profound prayer in union with her Lord Jesus - the only love of her life, begging for the enlightenment of these poor graceless men and keenly aware of her position as a representative of Christ among these men who evidently had some esteem for her spirit.
She is no doubt keenly aware and hopefully regretting that she got herself into such a situation as to be found in front of a Buddha.
However, you must know by now that Buddhism does not even believe in any god or God. And they will readily tell you that they do not worship Siddhartha (Buddha) or any Creator whatsoever.
But I don't dispute that this photo finds Mother doing what we need least = confusing the faithful Catholic.
