Tough to Find True Sacraments? Don't be Anxious
Excerpt from "An Exposition Of The Gospels, Matthew And Mark" by John MacEvilly, Archbishop of Tuam, 1887 A.D., page 129: 
 
Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His justice, and all these things shall be added unto you. 
 
1. After the negative precept prohibiting excessive anxiety in regard to the necessaries of life, our Redeemer now proposes a positive or affirmative precept..... 
 
2. "Seek." He does not say, "be solicitious." For, even in reference to our spiritual wants, we should not indulge in distracting solicitude, "nihil soliciti sitis," etc. (St. Paul, Phil, IV)
 
 
 

For Those who Cannot Go to Confession
 
Act of ContritionO my God! I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee; and I detest all my sins, because I dread the loss of heaven and the pains of hell, but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, Who art all good, and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to confess my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life. Amen.
 

"The reception of the Sacrament of Penance is a divine precept [requirement] which concerns 
all who, after baptism, are guilty of mortal sin. It is of the strictest obligation, there being no
other means by which they can be reconciled to God. An actual or implicit wish to confess, joined
to *perfect contrition, is necessary as a necessary means for those who cannot go to confession."

(Rev. Fr. F. X. Schouppe, "A Course of Religious Instruction: Apologetic,
Dogmatic, And Moral: For The Use Of Colleges And Schools",  1879 Imp.)

  Canons of the Sacraments of Orders (DZ 966, Can. 6): “If anyone says that in the
Catholic Church a hierarchy has not been instituted by divine ordinance, which
consists of the bishops, priests, and ministers: let him be anathema [cf. n. DZ 960].”

 

 

“It follows then that the Church of Christ not only exists to-day and always, but is
also exactly the same as it was in the time of the Apostles, unless we were to say,
which God forbid, either that Christ our Lord could not effect His purpose, or that
He erred when He asserted that the gates of hell should never prevail against it.” 
-Pope Pius XI, Encyclical Mortalium Animos (English: The minds of mortals) 1928

Ecclesiastical Approbation
In Today's Catholic World (TCWBLOG.com) carries the approbation in writing of the Holy See in exile. It faithfully adheres to the rules for Catholic Journals mandated by Leo XIII in the Apostolic Constitution Officiorum ac Munerum, January 25, 1897 - so heavily re-stressed by Pius X in Pascendi Dominici Gregis, September 8, 1907.
