How Grace is Supplied for Catholics Without Mass Options

"Catechism of the Summa Theologica of Saint Thomas Aquinas", p. 278, Impr., on the vital importance of (being in union with) papal jurisdiction - to receive supernatural grace:

 

Q. Why does this supreme power in the order of jurisdiction belong to the Sovereign Pontiff?

A. Because the perfect unity of the Church demands that this supreme power should belong to him alone. For this reason Jesus Christ charged Simon Peter to feed His flock; and the Roman Pontiff is the one and only legitimate successor of St. Peter unto the end of time (XL. 6).

Q. It is then from the Sovereign Pontiff that depends every man's union with Jesus Christ through the sacraments, and consequently his supernatural life and eternal salvation?

A. Yes; for although it is true that the grace of Jesus Christ is not in an absolute way dependent upon the reception of the sacraments themselves when it is impossible to receive them, at least in the case of adults and that the action of the Holy Ghost can supplement this defect provided the person is not in bad faith; it is, on the other hand, absolutely certain that no one who separates himself knowingly from communion with the Sovereign Pontiff can participate in the grace of Jesus Christ, and that in consequence if he dies in that state he is irremediably lost."

 

 

Universal Testimony of the Fathers of the Early Church on The Apostasy:

 

"The apostasy of the city of Rome from the vicar of Christ and its destruction by Antichrist may be thoughts so new to many Catholics, that I think it well to recite the text of theologians of greatest repute. First Malvenda, who writes expressly on the subject, states as the opinion of Ribera, Gaspar Melus, Biegas, Suarrez, Bellarmine and Bosius that Rome shall apostatise from the faith, drive away the Vicar of Christ and return to its ancient paganism. ...Then the Church shall be scattered, driven into the wilderness, and shall be for a time, as it was in the beginning, invisible hidden in catacombs, in dens, in mountains, in lurking places; for a time it shall be swept, as it were from the face of the earth. Such is the universal testimony of the Fathers of the early Church."
-Henry Edward Cardinal Manning, The Present Crisis of the Holy See, 1861

 

 
How to Prepare for and Make a Spiritual Communion

(By Fr. Dom Lorenzo Scupoli, from his classic book, The Spiritual Combat.)

 

 

"There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we can not resolve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary. With the Holy Rosary, we will save ourselves. We will sanctify ourselves.

We will console Our Lord and obtain the salvation of many souls." -Sr. Lucy (of Fatima) 12/26/57

 

 

Blessed be St. Peter, Prince of the Apostles!

I need to know how I can get censures removed for me and my family. We were in novus ordo for so long. We did not know what we were doing.

Are online confessions to a valid True Catholic priest valid?

PAPAL RESTORATION STAFF MEMBER 24.05.2016 18.19

No. In these prophesied times of there being very few TRUE Catholic priests who have canonical mission, jurisdiction to absolve sins, if you cannot go to confession, make a Perfect Act of Contrition.

May God have mercy on us for our dereliction in responding generously to our Mother's appeals at Fatima for prayer, penance and reparation.
