Blessed Paul VI, Lepanto & Mother Mariana

Christ the King Law Center

Dear Atila,

I have recently finished a blog which I would like to share with you and TIA readers. You may find it by clicking on this link.




Blessed Paul VI…

Dear TIA,

Salve Maria!

Regarding the news report below - They have made a mockery of the papal powers and, of course, sainthood! Can this be, perhaps, the worst of their false “authority?”

Thank you!

      In Maria,


Beatification soon for Popes Paul VI, John Paul I?

CWN – July 12, 2012 - Pope Benedict XVI could beatify two of his predecessors during the coming Year of Faith, according to the former prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints.

Cardinal José Saraiva Martins told the Italian daily Corriere delle Alpi that the causes of both Pope Paul VI and Pope John Paul I are “moving ahead,” and miracles attributed to the intercession of both Pontiffs are currently under investigation.

A full position, or dossier on the life of Pope John Paul I, was recently submitted to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints. Documentation on the cause of Pope Paul VI is already complete. If the Congregation finds that each man demonstrated “heroic virtue,” only the approval of a miracle would be necessary to fulfill the requirements for beatification.

Pope Benedict XVI has already beatified one of his predecessors, Blessed John Paul II.

Papal Letter

Dear Marian Horvat,

We have appreciated your articles very much!

In this article which you wrote that a friend sent us on the abandonment of the true Church in China, was this letter from the Pope issued in 2007, or just recently? If in 2007, do you know why we have not heard about this in Catholic Family News or The Remnant, at least that I remember?

This is an issue that belies credulity in view of the fact that there are Priests and Bishops currently in prison in China, and certainly it is not a time, if there ever would be, to abandon these true Catholics there.

My husband and I enjoyed your talk some years ago at a CFN conference and always look forward to your CFN writings.

Thank you and God Bless You for your good work!


Right & Left


Ever wonder why it is that the conservatives are called the "right" and the liberals are called the "left." By chance I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible:

Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV) - "The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left."

Yep, that's it!


A Noble Offer from Pakistan

Rev. Sr.. Superior,

Greetings of peace and joy

I am S.B. writing from Pakistain. I am thirty five years old. I belong to a catholic family. I have done my Masters degree in Pakistain Studies. I also done teachers training (CT) I have experience working in the office with the sisters and also teaching in schools.

Presently I am teaching in School. I had some liabilities on me from my family to support them for their education, but now I wish to join a religious congregation. I feel that I am called for religious life.

I humbly request you to allow me a chance to experience and join your congregation. I shall be highly grateful to your for this kindness .Now, you let me if you allow me to join your congregation.

I am waiting for your reply.

      In his grace


TIA responds:


We are afraid you have received some misinformation. TIA is not a Religious Congregation; it is a non-profit civil society turned toward the defense of the Catholic Faith and Christian Civilization and to forming our audience in the best counter-revolutionary way we can.

We are Catholics, but our members do not have a religious life in common.

So, we believe that someone informed you wrongly about us. We are sorry for that, but flattered by your offer to be a part of TIA if it were a Religious Congregation.

We will be praying for you. Please, include us in your prayers as well.

The Battle of Lepanto


My name is D.C.. I recently got into a discussion with my dad regarding the rise of Islam which is swiftly gaining power throughout much of the world. I had brought up the great Battle of Lepanto to my dad, but he doubted that it really happened!

I came across this wonderful synopsis on your site and was wondering if you could somehow email this to my father. I would be grateful. Please let me know if you are able to do this, and I will then supply my dad's email address.

Thank you again for all that you are doing to promote the true faith!!

     Ave Maria! Pax tecum,


TIA responds:


Thank you for your kind words on our work.

We will be glad to forward that article to your father. Just send us his e-mail

Mother Mariana’s Dates

Dear Dr. Horvat,

I am getting to know the most Admirable Mother Marianna of Jesus Torres, and just wish to point out something to you that you may have already noticed.

On Page 13 of vol. I, The Admirable Life, you say that the third reason why this devotion and these prophecies only became known some 200 years after they were revealed is because the blessed Mother Marianna prayed to hide her life and favors, but Our Lady assured her that only after three centuries of silence, in the 20th century, would her name and the truth of these revelations become known.

I suggest that it has taken just those same 300 years for the evil seeds sown in the 16th century to come to full blossom and fruition in our time.

The dates that I think are significant are:

Martin Luther 1483-1546
N. Copernicus 1463-1543
Francis Bacon 1561-1626

Mother Marianna 1563-1635

Galileo 1564-1642
R. Descartes 1596-1650
John Milton 1608-1673 (Satan’s heroic exploits in Paradise Lost)

Mother Mariana comes right in between these sources of our Modernist crisis. It seems wonderfully fitting that she would suffer and atone for their sins of the intellect with her pure virginal flesh in union with Our Lord and as an extension of His Humanity, even as did St. Therese of Lisieux and her legion of Little Souls known only in eternity.
