Aparecida & Louis XVI’s Offspring

Crisis in the Church

My dear brother or sister in Christ,

Would you happen to know where I could purchase the book No Crisis in the Church? by Simon Galloway? Somebody thought you might have this out-of-print book in your catalogue, but I do not find it in your catalogue.

Thanks for your help with this.

     In Jesu et Maria,


TIA responds:

Dear K.P.,

We are sorry but we do not carry this book. We noticed that New Olive Press is no longer online. Once you could purchase it direct there.

However, there are several used copies still available on Amazon

In any case, you can read the review by Fr. Somerville that we posted here.

Aparecida: Our Lady Starts to Move


I am glad to report that Our Lady of Aparecida in Brazil is attracting each year more pilgrims. Last year the visits reached 11 million, which means almost one million per month.

It seems that something good is being prepared by her, with her acting directly in the heart of each one. If we put this into the perspective of the promised chastisement, we have reason for hope, as far as we remain united to her. Keep up the good work. You can see below the news report.

     In Christ and Mary,

     M.C., Brazil

11 million visit Aparecida

January 9, 2013. (Romereports.com) Already considered as one the most visited site of Catholicism outside the Vatican, 2012 brought record-breaking crowds to the Basilica of the National Shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida near Sao Paulo, Brazil. According to the Brazilian Conference of Bishops, a whopping 11,114,639 people visited the Marian shrine in 2012, besting the previous year's numbers by nearly 215,000.

The Basilica of Our Lady of Aparecida, the patroness of Brazil, consistently ranks as a top destination for world pilgrims.

Outside Rome, only the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City surpasses those numbers with an estimated 20 million visitors. Meanwhile the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes sees approximately 6 million visitors per year.

Women Priests


Since they don't have any reasonable argument, now they bring in dancing girls to catch your sympathy... Woman priest...Girl priest...?

Can anything be worse than this?

Jose Sanchez del Rio

Dear Friends,

Where will I be able to get a picture of Blessed Jose Sanchez and/or a statue of him? I am so moved by his story and pray to him every day.

Fr. Rene Guesnier, O.S.B.


TIA responds:

Rev. Fr. Rene,

A bronze statue commemorating Jose Sanchez
In 2007 this life-size bronze sculpture of José Sanchez del Río was placed in the city of Sahuayo, Mexico, on the place where he was martyred.

We do not know of any statues available to the public for purchase, but perhaps some of our readers will inform us if they are aware of one that is available.

You can purchase a Custom Photo Card of José Sánchez here, and a medallion here or here.

We hope this is of some help to you.

Book on Marie Antoinette


Can you recommend a reliable book on Marie Antoinette?

Thank you,


TIA responds:

Hello A.M.,

We reviewed the book Trianon, A Novel of Royal France by Elena Maria Vidal here. Even though it is in novel form, the information is correct and accurately portrays the martyred Queen of France. She also wrote the book Madame Royale about the surviving daughter of Marie Antoinette that is very interesting.

You can see an interview with the author here

On her blog, Tea at Trianon, she has many interesting articles about King Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinettte. I would suggest you address your question to her.

Louis XVII’s Offspring & DNA

Dear Mr. Guimarães,

In January 2000, a private edition book (1000 copies) written by Austrian Baron Nicholas Maria Eltz was published with English and German text, in Bosnia & Hercegovina. Its title is Death Knows No Secrets: Hyper-Trophia Asymmetrica Ossea Rami Mandibuli Dextri, Forensic Research Results of University Professor Dr. Johann Szilvássy.

Dr. Szilvássy was Director of the Association of Experts in Anthropology and Hereditary-Biology from 1975 onwards and published his forensic research on the identification of alias K. W. Naundorff and the Duchesse de Angoulême for the Institute for Forensic Medicine of the University of Wien on May 5, 1999.

In his findings, he categorically proved that the man alias K. W. Naundorff was the son of Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette and that the Duchesse de Angoulême was also a member of the Bourbon family, but not a child born of Marie-Antoinette.

The book was sent to all the monarchs and the former reigning families, leading statesmen, diplomats and aristocrats in Europe, along with copies sent to the Vatican directed to Pope John-Paul II.

Louis XVI offspring
Baron Eltz , who passed away August 5, 2012, has irrefutably solved one of the greatest mysteries of the French Revolution, indeed of modern history, with the benefit of science. Dr. Szilvássy now works in Rome at the Vatican, after he refused under threat to refute his published findings, being forced out of his Vienna academic and professional career altogether.

Pope John-Paul II accepted the research, personally backed it, and supported the efforts of Dr. Szilvássy and Baron Eltz.. The proof is a rare hereditary variation of the bone formation of the skull, shared both by Louis XVI and his son Louis-Charles and later by the descendants of alias Naundorff. This kind of evidence cannot be tampered with or dismissed.

To quote from the Eltz book, “Those who have gone to incredible lengths to keep the truth surrounded by a seemingly impregnable fog of falsehoods are the same crafty anti-Catholic bunch – stronger, richer and more influential today than ever before…”

Immediately after the Eltz book was published and in circulation, a campaign was initiated in Europe and North America to side-line it and, if possible, to bury it completely.

An article was published in the prestigious New York Times copyright 2000, titled “Genetics Offers Denouement to Mystery of Prince’s Death”. Next, a commission was given to an English writer Deborah Cadbury who authored a book copyright 2002, titled The Lost King of France: How DNA Solved the Mystery of the Murdered Son of Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette. The publisher was St. Martin’s Press, New York. This book received a lot of media attention in both Europe and North America. The other two books published by the Cadbury interestingly carry the following titles: Terrible Lizard and Altering Eden.

Of course the scientific weight of DNA is considered irrefutable in today’s society, but DNA evidence can also easily be manipulated. What of K. W. Naundoff in the Cadbury book? The index of her book gives his name and considerable space to his claims, all negative!
