Salsa Monks, Satanic Pride & Acutis’ Virtues

Card. Roche: Just One Liturgy


In an interview with Vatican News, Cardinal-elect Arthur Roche, the Prefect of the Vatican’s Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of the Sacraments who will put into effect Francis’ new dictates on reducing Latin Masses, gives an idea how he interprets his role. It is definitely to try to make one liturgy based on Vatican II and do away with the 1962 Latin Mass as much as possible.

He complains that there has never been so much controversy over liturgy as what we are experiencing today. And why all these troubles? Because “there has never before been two versions of the Roman Missal – the Roman Missal from 1962, and then the Roman Missal from 1970, which was produced with the full force of the Second Vatican Council behind it and promulgated by Pope Saint Paul VI.”

There should be no battle, he affirms, and there would not be if there were a single liturgy " as the Holy Father has pointed out in his Traditionis custodes.”

We can see what road he will be following in carrying out his duties...

Salsa-Dancing Carmelites

Dear TIA,

Here you have two pair of Carmelites dancing salsa in the best Vatican II style…

I know for sure it’s salsa and not some other Latino dance (like bachata or cumbia for instance).

Make of it the use you deem more advantageous for our common counter-revolutionary fight.

     In Jesu et Maria,

Disappointed with Mass of the Ages Documentary

Dear TIA,

Many people from my parish have expressed great excitement about Mass of the Ages, a three-part documentary that explains the Latin Mass, Vatican II, and the wider crisis in the Church.

The second part of this documentary came out last week and already has well over 100,000 views, so I decided to watch it and see why it is so popular.

While I found the documentary to be quite informative, I was disappointed to see that it portrays Pope Paul VI and the "Council Fathers" as well-intentioned figures who were simply misguided.

Since I am sure you disagree with this conclusion, I am hoping you will be able to watch this documentary and correct its historical errors so your readers will have a more nuanced and accurate understanding.

     In Jesus, Mary and Joseph,


TIA responds:

Dear J.S.,

Thank you for your comments and your suggestion. If we will have spare time, we certainly will watch it.

In the meantime, from your description of it, TIA addressed this topic when Mr. Patrick Odou refuted a similar thesis by Italian professor Roberto de Mattei who attempts to "save" Vatican II. His series starts here, and goes on to detail the revolutions made by John XXIII and by Paul VI, and then continued by John Paul I, John Paul II and Benedict XVI.

Keep Your Powder Dry


We, as Traditional Catholics, realize that we have to rely on God and Our Lady - especially the daily rosary, the Brown Scapular, the Traditional Mass and sacraments, etc. - since the spiritual battle continues and grows ever more deadly both to our souls and our bodies, But I wish to dwell on the "physical battle" for the moment.

Could you find and post Saints and Popes who encourage us, not only to employ spiritual combat, but physical combat. There are many who know that a physical battle is also coming, one where we will employ necessary means (besides our faith and prayers) when we have to fight with guns, so to speak, and maybe die in the process.

But are there not saints and popes who encouraged the faithful to "arm up and fight also" - The Cristeros, the Crusades, Isabella, etc and now... in the barns and homes during Isabella's time - "Pray to God and Keep your Powder Dry"?


TIA responds:


Yes, there were Popes and Saints who taught us to fight with both spiritual and material weapons. Among them you may read the sermon of Bl. Urban II convening the First Crusade and the letter of St. Bernard to Hugh de Payns, who founded the Order of the Templar knights.

Today we may apply the same principles and be prepared to defend our lives, our properties, our country and our Faith.

You may benefit from reading a question and answer on a similar topic - "Can Catholics use weapons against Communism?"  - here.

Satanists in Homo Pride

Hello TIA,

Satanists announced their participation in a homo event on June 11.

Read below, please.


Sick LGBT ‘Pride In The Park’ Event Targeting Children Will Feature Satanists Performing ‘Unbaptisms’ On The Kids

An event dubbed “Pride in the Park” targeting young kids will include a sick leftist cult of Satanists who have sworn to perform “unbaptisms” on the children. And this isn’t in California, but deep-red Idaho.

The event, which will take place this Saturday in Coeur d’Alene, is described as a “family friendly celebration of LGBTQ+ diversity.”

The Satanic Temple will be there, according to the North Idaho Pride Alliance website, in an attempt to brainwash and recruit children.

The Heroic Virtues of Carlo Acutis

Dear TIA,

Apparently “Blessed” Carlo Acutis was a fan of swimming.

@Carloacutis_lebanon on Instagram, where I found these photos, writes:

“Our Blessed enjoyed putting on his diving goggles and playing ‘fetch the trash from the bottom of the sea.’ When he took the dogs out for a walk, he always picked up whatever garbage he came across. It was his way of improving his corner of the world.”

It seems then the Vatican would say that picking up litter in a swimsuit is a display of “heroic virtue” for all to imitate...

     In Jesu et Maria,


Carlo Acutis
