I am a convert to the One, True Faith. I am also what is called a Traditional Roman Catholic (or prior to 1965, just a regular, every day Catholic). But contrary to what you may have been taught, I, like most Traditionalists, am not a sedevacantist. I am loyal to the Magisterium and to the Holy Father; I believe that the Second Vatican Council was a true Church council and that the Novus Ordo Missae (Mass of Paul VI) can confect a true Eucharist when the rubrics are followed by a properly ordained Catholic priest. However, I believe that the massive destruction over the past fifty-one years has NOT been due to a misinterpretation of the Council’s documents, but is due to the documents themselves. I also believe that the Novus Ordo is grossly inferior to the Traditional Latin Mass (the True Mass, "the most beautiful thing this side of Heaven"), is Protestant in its orientation, and is grievously harmful to the Faith.

I support all Traditional Latin Mass orders (non-Sedevacantists), to include the SSPX, FSSP, ICKSP, and all diocesan priests who struggle to celebrate the True Mass under often terrible conditions.

Lastly, I hope all Roman Catholics who believe, as Holy Mother Church has taught these past 2,000 years, that there is Extra Ecclesiam nulla salus, take up the Cross & the Sword, and claim the title of “Faithful Knight.”

--I believe that Christ founded One Church, and that there is NO salvation outside Her.

--I believe that Irish monks saved Western civilization.

--I believe that the Crusades were a good thing.

--I believe that Islam is still the greatest threat to Western civilization.

--I will never apologize for the Catholic Church and Her mandate by Christ to spread the Gospel.

--I believe that at the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965), Luther won.

--I believe that homosexuality has devastated the Catholic priesthood.

--I believe that many Novus Ordo bishops are direct successors to only one Apostle, Judas Iscariot.

--I believe that Dante was correct: The floor of Hell is littered with the skulls of bishops.

--I believe the "Reform of the Reform" is a toothless dog.

--I believe that Communion in the hand, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, removal of the altar rails, and removal of our tabernacles from the altar of sacrifice, has destroyed Catholic belief in the Real Presence.

--I believe that Traditional Catholics are at war with Roman-Protestants for the very soul of Holy Mother Church....and We will win!

--I believe that Russia has not been consecrated to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart by any Pope, and that parts of the Third Secret are still hidden by Rome.

--I believe that Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre will be raised to the altar as a Saint.

--I believe that if it were not for the Society of St. Pius X, Tradition would have died long ago.

--I believe that the Society of St. Pius X is the Marine Corps of Catholicism.

--I believe that the term "in full communion" is a sham. After all, per Rome, heretics like Cardinal Mahony and sodomites like Archbishop Weakland are "in full communion."

--I believe that the Republican Party is no different from the Democrat Party...and that they deserve each other.

--I believe that the U.S. Military produces the finest young men and women on the face of the earth.

--I believe that America has done more good for others around the world than any nation in history.

--I believe that our current Commander in Chief is a Marxist.

--I believe in the 2nd Amendment, just as the Fathers of our Nation did.

--I believe that the Death Penalty is a good thing.

--I believe in restoring all things in Christ.

Tu Es Sacerdos in Aeternum: Father Enrique Tomas Rueda, RIP

Father Rueda was the organizer and first director of the Catholic Center at the Free Congress Foundation in Washington, D.C., where he worked as a senior contributing scholar. He authored several books including The Marxist Character of Liberation Theology, Roman Catholicism and American Capitalism: Friends or Foes, and The Morality of Political Action. But it was after publishing The Homosexual Network: Private Lives & Public Policy in 1982 when he garnered the most notoriety as well as acclaim. In the words of the late Fr. Charles Fiore, O.P., the book “thoroughly researches the widening homosexual power grab in society, in the process tells us everything we didn’t want to hear, but really ought to know about.”

In 1997, he'd actually discouraged me from reading the book as it contained “old news.” In other words, most everything he'd written and predicted in The Homosexual Network had played out by 1997. While not concerned exclusively with the machinations of the Lavender Mafia within the Church, the clergy sex scandals of the late 1990’s would reveal how prescient he'd been but would not help him regain the prestige he'd lost following his suspension as a priest-- the direct result of his having authored the book in the first place.

His suspension placed him on a virtual blacklist in every diocese in the country and made it so that he was not even permitted to offer funeral Mass for his deceased father. With bills to pay and a mouth to feed, Fr. Rueda had to find employment on the outside. He was eventually hired on as an engineer at the Rochester-based Kodak company. In 1987, he moved to Miami with his elderly mother when Kodak asked him to head up their personnel department for Central and South America. Father Rueda managed his finances shrewdly to such an extent that he never had to worry about money. Any Mass stipends he received were passed on to more needy members of the clergy, although he was prompt in offering the Masses himself. I’m sure he would joke today that it was just a business decision that gave you two Masses for the price of one.

  1. Hi Again

    I just noticed you had Fatima Network on your list of links. I do not know if you are aware of who Fr. Nick Gruner is. However he is reprobate. I am attaching for you to read the EWTN link. YOu seem like a good Catholic guy and you say your not sedevacantist. I beg you to read the link and then decide what you want to do.

    My dear friend i too firmly believe in our Lady Of fatima and her message, which is why i too got in touch with The Fatima network in Canada, however after reading a lot of their litrature i found them very antagonistic to the Holy Father. It was then i started my search again and found The Heralds of the Gospel.

    In Christ
