Msgr. Fenton Warns in 1962: Vatican II May Fail

Msgr. Joseph Clifford Fenton was one of the most eminent theologians of 20th Century America ...     In the October 1962 American Ecclesiastic Review, Msgr. Fenton published an article entitled, "The Virtue of Prudence and the Success of the Second Ecumenical Vatican Council." It seems to be the only article from the period which leveled the sober warning: Do not think that just because this Council has been called, it will automatically be a success!

Clean Energy and Security Act brings auditors into your home

H.R. 2454 is a 1400-page promise to audit every aspect of your home and life under the guise of creating jobs, clean energy and a sustainable world.... The bill states every home owner will receive an energy audit. What is a home energy audit? It is an intrusive visit made by the bureaucrats at the Home Energy Team or a similar group.  They will examine and report the way you live your life directly to RESNET (Residential Energy Services Network) . Light fixtures, socket types, spas, hot tubs, windows, appliances, walls and roofs will all be under review. Energy tests will be conducted throughout your house. At the end of the visit you will receive a report and a rating. The report will focus on the changes you need to make and the rating is called a HERS rating (Home Energy Rating System)....  click here!

Rome-SSPX: Background
to the Doctrinal Discussions

By John Vennari

          Both Bishop Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X, and Bishop Tissier de Mallerais, SSPX, stated that next on the program is doctrinal discussion regarding Vatican II and the crisis in the Church. There are some historic facts often buried that should be brought back to the surface, so as to understand the form these doctrinal discussions may take.

Archbishop Lefebvre
and Vatican II

The Council in light of Tradition?

by John Vennari

           Now that the “excommunications” have been withdrawn from the four SSPX bishops, it is wise to restate the position of the SSPX regarding the Second Vatican Council.
(Includes 1974 Declaration of Archbishop Lefebvre)


Ecumenism: Time
to Stop the Insanity

By Edwin Faust

"Now, I am going to argue that ecumenism draws us away from God; that it is a godless activity; that ecumenism is sin. One might counter this assertion by saying that the catalogue of deadly sins contains no mention of ecumenism; that moral theologians do not treat of the matter in their manuals. I say they do. And that in the catalogue of deadly sins, ecumenism comes under the heading of sloth. "

returning God to Europe

Modern Ecumenism
Condemned by Sacred Scripture

by Bishop George Hay

Bishop Hay demonstrates that Sacred Scripture absolutely and infallibly forbids all religious intermingling between Catholics and those of false religions. Indeed, Bishop Hay here sounds the death knell for modern ecumenism, since ecumenism, as well as the Charismatic Movement, are squarely based on interfaith principles solemnly condemned by Sacred Scripture -- a condemnation that no authority in the Church can overrule.
