Dear Editor: "Thank you for standing up for the truth"

Dear Editor of TCW:


I have a question for you. I want to thank you for standing up for the truth. This is so hard to fathom, what happened to Fr. Van Tran. It's very painful for me. I'm having a hard time with it. But I continue to have hope.


My question is, that, because you speak the truth, and that is where I want to be, what am I to do now? Where do we go from here? I don't know what I'm supposed to do. Please let me know, for I'm so confused.


May the Holy Family Protect You & Yours!

"The faithful sheep will gather together, and in Unions  of Prayer will offer potent resistance

 to the enemies of the Catholic Church. Yes, yes, the flock will become small. Many of you will

see those sad times and days which will bring such evil in their train... . Great confusion will  reign

amid princes and nations. The incredulity of the present day is preparing those horrid evils."

(End Times Prophecy of Bp. George Wittman [d. 1833] for the True Flock)


Hi Katy,


This is painful for all of us, for sure. Yet, the prophecies say that this time, is to be the worst persecution in history, for the True Church/flock.


Tran's witness/information about the True Pope Gregory XVII, etc., is accurate - as is Archbishop Pintonello's, and others. 


Regarding the now reprobate, Tran, God never takes away a man's free-will... Tran lost his Faith. The sacraments he administered and/or authorized up to June 29th, 2019 (the date when he published his heretical book) are all 100% valid. He lost any/all authority with the publishing [manifesting of heresy] of his damning book "Catholic Manifesto". He left the Church. We didn't go anywhere (or do anything wrong).


So, we are still going, praying... there will be a Great Restoration/Triumph!


Katy, TCW will be inviting individuals to a meeting to discuss the current situation of the hierarchy (all levels Cardinals/Pope) in exile. Of course, you are most welcome to attend. 


Our Lady of Perseverance, Pray for Us! 


The Editor of TCW

Ecclesiastical Approbation
In Today's Catholic World ( 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.

On 10/27/2019 it was announced that: "TCW will be inviting individuals to a meeting to discuss the current situation of the hierarchy (all levels Cardinals/Pope) in exile." The hoped for time was Easter 2020. Due to the pandemic this meeting is postponed.

I am interested to know the current situation of the true hierarchy in exile too. May I please be informed too of when and where the meeting will be. GBU!

My family and I were watching a wind burst during Hurricane Ian today - and we all saw a gigantic pine tree fall down right in front of our house - onto the driveway. I then lit our blessed candle... we said prayers. All are safe... no property damage.
