“Two loves have made two cities: the love of self to the point of despising God, the earthy city; and the love of God to the point of despising self, the heavenly city,” such is the teaching of the great St Augustine at the beginning of the 5th century.
In the liberal atmosphere that permeates Western culture, obedience has been greatly abused as an excuse for great evil. However, obedience is a virtue and Catholics are supposed to seek to continually increase in virtue. This leads to the question: How does a Catholic obey boththeir religious and civil superiors when they are obviously perpetrating evil laws and doctrines?
For over a thousand years, the Faithful have sung the Mass with joy. This is not a new, modern idea. In fact, this tradition goes back thousands of years. Historically, it was a high honour to be asked to sing. And we're asking now! Starting February 19th, members of the Choir will be positioned throughout the church for a few weeks to help us get comfortable with when to sing, and also to help give us more confidence with the parts. Please join in as your are able and sing to the Lord!

Sometimes we think about religion as a business. St. Peter had this idea. Peter quit his job as a fisherman and followed Jesus during the three years of public ministry. He was willing to do this because Jesus called him to be a fisher of men. Peter wanted to know what his service to Jesus was worth.
The retreat will be preached in English by Fr. Rusak, with masses celebrated by Fr. Prescott.

On this 110th anniversary of the birth of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, we are happy to announce the launch of a website dedicated to the memory of our revered founder. This site is accessible as of today. First and foremost, it is a filial tribute to our beloved father at a time when many, even in the Society of St. Pius X, never knew personally the Archbishop.
