Ukraine, Novus Ordo & War


From Ukraine
People Commenting
Dear TIA,

We are Catholics from Ukraine. From the Holy Place of Apparition of Mother of God, Ternopil. We ask for help of the whole world because Greek-Catholic and orthodox clergy, together with officials, want to destroy chapel on the Holy Place and forbid to celebrate Holy Catholic Masses for glorification of God and Mother of God.

We implore all Catholics of the world: Help us!

Priests and parishioners of the Holy Catholic Church of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Faber & Newman
People Commenting
TIA,

It was interesting to see what Fr. Frederick William Faber thought of his fellow convert and priest, John Newman. He and Newman were the most sensational examples of conversion from Anglicanism to Roman Catholicism in that time. However, unlike Newman, after his dramatic conversion in 1845, Fr. Faber went on to become a strong ultra-montane Catholic, known for his devotion to Mary and standing for everything that conservative Protestantism most despised.

Not the case with Newman, who continued to dialogue with Anglican ministers and friends, and despised the ultra-Montane movement as too much Rome and too inflexible.

Please keep writing on Newman. You 're the only ones looking at Newman's canonization with objectivity.

     In Cristo Rey,

     P.H.

Great Website
People Commenting
Dear TIA,

Tradition in Action is such a spiritually enriched website, I sometimes spend hours reading through its contents. Your articles hit on every issue that often troubles me, and my questions are usually answered after browsing through its contents.

I'm probably going to be emailing TIA soon with some questions that I have that I couldn't find covered in your website. Thanks again.

     JMJ,

La Morte de la Belgique
People Commenting
TIA,

Thank you for your article on Belgium. Europe is Christendom in collapse. Does the Holy Father play the violin? Is he fiddling while Rome burns? Is the hierarchy merely a secular bureaucracy? Brussels is 25% Muslim?

Encore une fois, c'est la Morte d'Arthur:

And slowly answer'd Arthur from the barge:
"The old order changeth, yielding place to new,
And God fulfils Himself in many ways,
Lest one good custom should corrupt the world.
Comfort thyself: what comfort is in me?
I have lived my life, and that which I have done
May He within Himself make pure! but thou,
If thou shouldst never see my face again,
Pray for my soul. More things are wrought by prayer
Than this world dreams of. Wherefore, let thy voice
Rise like a fountain for me night and day.
For what are men better than sheep or goats
That nourish a blind life within the brain,
If, knowing God, they lift not hands of prayer
Both for themselves and those who call them friend?
For so the whole round earth is every way
Bound by gold chains about the feet of God.

"The old order changeth, yielding place to new,
And God fulfils Himself in many ways,"

C'est fort, n'est-ce pas?

     E.P.L.

TIA responds:

J.M.,

We are sorry to tell you that you knocked on the wrong door. We do not know anything about esoteric scripture. We are Catholic, Apostolic, Romans.

Going Back to Novus Ordo
People Commenting
Dear Sir/Madam,

As a result of the recent developments with Rome and the SSPX, I have recently moved from attendance at an SSPX parish back to the N.O. parish where the "Indult" is applied and the Tridentine Mass is celebrated.

It is my love for Holy Mother Church which enables me to endure the lack of respect for the Mass evident among the congregants. Although it has been difficult to witness the lack of reverence and humility, this difficulty peaked recently after a First Communion celebration. A N.O. priest, new to the Latin Rite, went immediately to the altar railing and greeted the families. Suddenly the throng became intense and "zoo-like" as pictures flashed and people yelled out to one another to "get into the picture with Father." The onslaught was so sudden and so severe that even if this particular priest did have an understanding of the silence and reverence due to Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament (which he does not), he wouldn't have been able to control it.

Most of the time, the atmosphere is acceptable, but there hasn't been much opportunity for "mixing" of the two groups - until now. There seems to be more and more of this mixing and the line of distinction is blurring. Yes, the Mass is very different, but the people, well they are the same, and it is just this attitude that moved me out of the N.O. environment.

How will we, as Traditionalists, ever be able to endure the onslaught of the N.O. deception as these two Rites collide? This is the epitome of "I resist you to the face," but will I become lukewarm in the process? This type of behavior rubs off and I don't like the company.

Any comments?

     C.T.

TIA responds:

C.T.,

We believe that the only way to face the onslaught of the Novus Ordo is not to go to it. Any position of compromise sooner or later will end in joining with Progressivism.

We must resist Progressivism to defeat it, restore the Church and save our souls.

     Cordially,

Anti-War
People Commenting
Hello,

First, I very much support your website, and the traditional movement in the Catholic Church. However, I have just come by the section on concerning, "War on Terror" and I will not support such a war. Personally, I feel as if this entire section should not be on this site, for the following reasons.

The War on Terror is an entirely 'worldly' and propagandinized message. From it, two entirely unjustifiable wars have been created, the war in Iraq, and the war in Afghanistan. The whole mentality and psychology behind these wars can be summed up in the need for revenge and chastisement of an entire people for the supposed fault of a few.

Secondly, this entire "War on Terror", and the real wars which it has spawned, is now being exposed as entirely supported by the oligarchs of the world who want to get profit and power from them. As I am certainly not an expert on this subject, I will go not further. However, I will say this, any war supported by modern political leaders will be entirely motivated for the consolidation of money and power, to me this seems common sense, especially in this modern age.

Thirdly, this radicalization and violent outburst from Muslims must be taken into perspective. Why are they radically angry and violent towards the West, primarily the Americanized societies and cultures of the world? Pious Muslims call America "the land of Satan." America has a sick culture, a demented society and it is a land of cowards with a humility which is already dead or on life support. Personally, I agree with the pious Muslim's comment on America; and ultimately, this "terrorism" will not end with any military force, that is folly, it will only end with "a new Christendom", to quote Tradition in Action.

Lastly, as Catholics we should not trivialize the notion of war by comparing it to modern military engagements. We must know that our enemies are not poor people living in the East, but the powerful evil forces who "roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls."

Can I know your comments on this?

     Thanks,

     M.A.

TIA responds:

M.A.,

We don't agree with your anti-war, anti-Capitalism and pro-Muslim positions.

But, if you want to delve deeper into the topic, you may read Mr. Guimarães' book War, Just War, which presents our position based on Catholic doctrine on just war.

     Cordially,
