‘Gay Marriage’ & Gun Control



Socialist France & ‘Gay Marriage’

TIA,

Thanks for the article on France’s First Mistress.

Just for your readers to have an idea where France is headed under the Socialist President, in case they have not been following the international news. During his successful campaign for president, Hollande promised to legalize same-sex marriage. Now he is carrying through on his promise.

Recently the French cabinet approved a draft bill legalizing same-sex marriage after weeks of loud opposition from Church leaders and the political right. Since Hollande and his Socialist Party have a majority in both houses of Parliament, the bill is expected to pass sometime early this 2013.

The draft law redefines marriage to stipulate that it is “contracted between two persons of different sex or of the same sex,” and the words “father” and “mother” in existing legislation are replaced by “parents.” The bill would also allow married gay couples to adopt children.

France would become the 12th country to legalise gay marriage – after others such as Canada, South Africa, Spain and Portugal. But with 60 million people it would be the biggest in terms of economic and diplomatic influence.

"This would be progress not just for the few, but for our whole society," Hollande said. Of course, the socialist “first mistress” agrees and fully supports the measure.

I don’t think the US is far behind Socialist France, and we should probably expect similar legislation before Obama leaves office.

     Keep up your good work.

     M.G., France

A Catholic School Today

TIA,

In this link you can see where Vatican II has taken the Catholic educational system in the United States. It is offering extra credit to 8th graders for fasting on the first day of Ramadan. Nothing offered, by the way, for Lent.

Sad, very sad,

     J.P.

Admirable Life of Mother Mariana

Dear Tradition in Action Representative,

I live in France in Versailles. I was glad to read the Admirable Life of Mother Mariana, I bought from you. It is a very interesting document.

It is a pity that the manuscript is not the original but a copy of it.

Do you know more or less when this copied document was released? Is there another copy of the original document?

Was the copy eleased before the achievement of the prophecies concerning Garcia Moreno and the pronouncement of the dogma of Immaculate Conception?

     Best regards,

     P.B., France

We hope it will answer your doubts.

     Cordially,

The Great Apostasy Continues...

TIA,

Regarding your article Starting the Church of the Future in Vienna & Boston:

Giving away churches... volunteer laity... heretical prelates... is the Great Apostasy in progress.

Soon Catholics will be forced to stay home with family prayers, or by themselves, begging Heaven for the grace to persevere in the Faith and convert those He places in their paths.

What we need in this crisis are catechism classes for children and adults, along with "the courage of our convictions" which foremost is EXTRA ECCLESIAM NULLA SALUS.

Below are some excerpts from St. Paul, which I believed apply to our times. The brackets and underlining are mine.

     C.M.

2 Thessalonians 2:
(original of the Douay-Rheims here)

... Let no man deceive you by any means, for unless there come a revolt first [Vatican II -the Great Apostasy], and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, Who opposeth, and is lifted up above all that is called God, or that is worshipped, so that he sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself as if he were God. Remember you not, that when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

And now you know what withholdeth, that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity already worketh; only that he who now holdeth, do hold, until he be taken out of the way. [the Papacy and/or the Eucharist]

And then that wicked one [the Antichrist] shall be revealed whom the Lord Jesus shall kill with the spirit of His mouth; and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming, him, Whose coming is according to the working of Satan, in all power, and signs, and lying wonders, And in all seduction of iniquity to them that perish; because they receive not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying:

That all may be judged who have not believed the truth, but have consented to iniquity. But we ought to give thanks to God always for you, brethren, beloved of God, for that God hath chosen you firstfruits unto salvation, in sanctification of the spirit, and faith of the truth: Whereunto also He hath called you by our Gospel, unto the purchasing of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, brethren, stand fast; and hold the traditions which you have learned, whether by word, or by our epistle.

Now our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and God and our Father, who hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation, and good hope in grace, Exhort your hearts, and confirm you in every good work and word.

The New Springtime

Greetings TIA,

I have been carefully watching with concerned interest the SSPXV negotiations. It does seem to me that Bishop Fellay is truly going the wrong way, although I would be more than glad to be proven wrong on this point! Is he in a rush to have lunch with Bishop Rifan who shamefully sold out? If the Society has the patience to wait it out while the Novus Ordo Church continues to disintegrate, they will be begging to join us! Many good people at “St. Bozo the Great” Novus Ordo parishes are just plain fed up!

At Our Lady Help Of Christians Latin Mass Chapel where I attend, we are growing exponentially with refugees from the non-stop sacrilege of the Novus Ordo. Young families with 4-5 children each, “senior teenagers” & converts from all walks of life jam the 3 Sunday Masses. There is such a spirit of Catholic joy as the real Gospel of Jesus Christ is preached.

We have catechism classes taught by a real priest, not an RCIA protestant convert. Classes on moral theology will be offered to parishioners in the Spring.

Thanks to the dress code, you can worship deeply without being distracted by billboard t-shirts, tight tops, pants, shorts or hormonally overactive grandmas dressed in sausage skin spandex! Children genuflect with their little faces almost to the floor.

THIS is the new Springtime! That we are fighting the good fight; we are running the race... We are KEEPING THE FAITH!

My advice to Bishop Fellay is the same as Glinda the good witch told Dorothy in Oz about the ruby slippers: “NEVER take them off your feet! Their magic must be very powerful... or else she (the wicked witch) wouldn't want them so badly!”

     Our Lady, Magnificent Battle Queen... Save the Church!

     K.D.
