Good News


I know what you're like, all you eagle-eyed readers of the latest blasphemous comedy which is the Church News Cycle. You're thinking "we're going to Hell in a handbasket." True, it's not a pretty picture, but there are bright spots. Here's this from Adrienne's trad Latin RC parish:

Here's some encouraging numbers for you from St. Joan of Arc: In 2022, there were 68,500 attendees at Sunday Masses and over 100,000 total at Holy Mass when weekday Masses are included. In addition, there were 55 baptisms, 65 who received First Communion, and eight adult confirmations. We also had 87 new families/individuals join the parish. On January 21, 2023 Confirmation was conferred on 70 parishioners.


Well done and this goes to show the thirst and need for the real deal as opposed to something else. We saw the same thing with Elizabeth II, when you think on it. The people loved her because she was true, and so must we be, whether in religion or anything else.

Remember, punters. Satan's the Father of lies and we're against that. Also note, there are islands of sanity and holiness amidst the breakdown into degenerate barbarism.

Your Friend,

I used to think the Church's problems were simply a matter of bad implementation. But then Francis decided to go to war with us. And probably the only good thing about war is it CLARIFIES things and brings your enemies out into the open and you get to clearly see what they believe.

So now my position has hardened. It isn't simply bad implementation. Vatican II has created a new church with new beliefs. One can't be a Vatican II'er and a Catholic any more than you can be a Catholic and a Lutheran.

The Church of Vatican II has erased God. That's why they build churches in the round now, so that the creatures can all gaze at each other and not Christ.

The present state of the English Church shows that the Queen did not "Defent the Faith" as she vowed to do. The new King needs to step in, take charge and toss the homosexuale now in charge out.

Deo Gratias! Saint Joan of Arc, pray for us!

It’s generally the same in the Protestant churches. Many of the ones that go woke, go broke (whither and eventually die). The ones that honestly try to follow the word of God generally thrive. As with all generalities, I think this is “generally” true.
