Reparation, WYDs & Feudalism

Please Join Me in an Act of Reparation

Dear Friends,

My heart is breaking as I read this! Truly, we must make reparation! I am going to go to Eucharistic Adoration tonight to make up for this horrific Mortal sin. An unspeakable sacrilege has been done on purpose to the Sacred Consecrated Species -- A bishop places Our Lord Himself into the hands of a Muslim -- done by an evil, vile heretic of an Archbishop who operates with impunity in Brazil!

Thanks to Tradition in Action, we know of this!

Let us remember this Saint's words of what actually happens every time...“They who make a sacrilegious Communion receive Satan and Jesus Christ into their hearts - Satan that they may let him rule, and Jesus Christ that they may offer Him in sacrifice as a Victim to Satan.”

     God bless you,



How WYDs Should Be

Dear TIA,

Ave Maria Purissima!

The scenes for World Youth Day were quite disgraceful but this is what we have come to expect. I blame the adults who organize such events for their naivety and lack of leadership.

I would segregate boys and girls. They have different roles in life and therefore require different instruction. I would ban camping sites which encourage sloppiness of dress, immodesty and possibly, fornication. I would accommodate the young people in hostels under the supervision of Priests and Religious Sisters. I would impose a curfew.

I would also impose a dress code which would of course require girls to dress in high necked tops and skirts or dresses below the knee. I would avoid sea side locations and busy urban areas. I would admit only those young people who have a track record of involvement in their parish or in their Catholic schools. No one should treat this occasion as a holiday.

As for the segregation of boys and girls, this could be done by having alternate days for them or, indeed, separate locations within the same overall region. Years ago this was the norm for example in Eucharistic Conferences. There would be separate days for men, women, boys and girls, perhaps all coming together for the final Holy Mass.

This is not so difficult to prepare and I am surprised those in authority have allowed WYD to descend to the very depths of depravity.

I am sure other TIA readers have their own views and it would be interesting to hear them.

God bless you all.

     Yours faithfully

Saint of the Day on Pope St. Pius X


Thanks for this wonderful article on Pius X. Anything I've ever read about his death always says it was his grief over the outbreak of WWI that killed him. It might have played a part but this pope who declared that modernists "should be beaten with fists!" Would not have been felled by grief.

After some years of using the Catholic app Laudate, especially for its Saint of the Day feature, I'd become increasingly irritated by the endless parade of saints from JPII's "Saint Factory". I was still reluctant to unsubscribe, but today's blatant omission of Pope St. Pius X, while filling that tremendous gap with copious lists of factory-issue "saints" was the last straw. I attempted to inquire whether the omission was intentional or an oversight.

I received a message saying my question couldn't be sent due to an error. I should "try again later". I didn't try again, I simply unsubscribed.



La Guadalupana

To whom it may concern,

Can you help me? I have written a Spanish children's book about our Lady of Guadalupe's apparition. I would like to have the song, La Guadalupana, played at the end of the book, however, I don't know if the Catholic Church has a copyright for the song.

It will be sung by a church member and inserted into a Spanish audio-book.

Please let me know if there is a copyright for this song, or how could I find this information?

Thank you in advance.




TIA responds:


We do not believe the lyrics or the music of that hymn fall under the copyright laws. The laws may apply, however, to that particular interpretation.

In order to post that hymn on our website we purchased the right to do it. The version we posted has the following information, as far as copyrights are concerned:

You may contact the artist or the group to which he belongs to discuss your project and see whether or not you should pay royalties to the authors.

Feudalism & Society of Souls

Dear TIA contributors,

I am a great admirer of Professor Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira, and of the TIA website. I have been considering the nature of feudalism for quite some time, and I am so pleased to find that the TIA website has many articles regarding feudalism and organic society. It is beginning to be clear to me that part of the role of the modern-day Catholic is to re-discover one's "feudal position," for lack of a better term.

Much is said these days regarding "state in life," yet I hear very little about class relations, marriage between classes, and general duties which pertain to different social strata. It is remarkable to me that the most traditional Catholics I know do not even consider this question.

I am emailing to ask for further resources regarding feudalism, especially any resources which may deal with how to recover the notion of social class and feudal relations in modernity.

Thank you very much and may God Bless you abundantly.



TIA responds:

Dear M.W.,

Thank you for your strong agreement with such an important aspect of TIA’s mission.

Yes, Feudalism, much more than a social-political system that was very successful in Christendom, serves as an example for the principles that inspired it. The ensemble of those principles reveals that the natural order, when duly permeated by supernatural graces emanating from the Holy Church, reaches its apex.

TIA has posted in our Library an online-volume that should meet your request: It is titled Society of Souls. It is a summary of Prof. Plinio thoughts on how a society should be. It deals with many fundamental principles that encompass most of the needs of a Catholic society. The good news is that this volume is introductory: Another volume to come is still more complete and extensive on the same subject matter.

We hope you will benefit from reading it.
