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.

Archbishop Annibale “Bugsy” Bugnini

Archbishop Annibale Bugnini, Titular Archbishop of Diocletiana, 1972-1982.

Annibale is the Italian name for “Hannibal”, the Carthaginian general who was the hero of the Second Punic War (213-208 BC) and the fiercest enemy of ancient Rome. (1)

Bugnini was the titular (2) archbishop of Diocletiana (3), a name from history that should strike fear into the heart of Christians. The persecution of the Roman emperor Diocletian (4) was the last of the Christian persecutions in ancient times and was known as “the Great Persecution” due to its ferocity.



(1)  Hannibal was a famed military strategist who brilliantly marched his army, which included war elephants, from Spain over the Pyrenees and the Alps into Italy in the campaign against Rome and occupied most of Italy for 15 years. He was defeated by Scipio Africanus in the Battle of Zama in 202 BC using many of the strategies that the Romans had learned from him. The ancient city of Carthage (near modern day Tunis) was known for its idolatrous religion of child sacrifice.

(2)  Titular dioceses are those ancient dioceses which had fallen into the hands of infidels (in partibus infidelium) and which no longer constitute an actual physical diocese governed by a resident bishop. The names of these essentially vacant dioceses are only used as titles, hence the term “titular”, for certain prelates who are appointed bishops or archbishops without an actual diocese to govern, i.e., vicars Apostolic, auxiliary bishops, administrators Apostolic, nuncios, Apostolic delegates.

(3)  The ancient diocese of Diocletiana was in the Roman province of Dardania, modern day Macedonia, and generally encompassed the modern city of Skopje.

(4)  Though not the first Roman Emperor to persecute Christians (e.g., Nero, Decius, Valerian) Diocletian (r. 284-305) styled himself a “religious reformer” over against the rising influence of Christians in the Roman Empire. He sought to reestablish the old pagan religion and worship in the Empire. He first purged the military of Christians and then beginning in A.D. 303 issued a series of decrees outlawing Christianity, effectively forcing Christians into idolatrous worship, for which the penalty of refusal was jail, destruction of Scriptures and churches, confiscation of property, torture, and death. The persecution was the last and most severe persecution in the Roman Empire against Christians and is known as “the Great Persecution” in history books. It was only effectively ended by the “Edict of Milan” in A.D. 313 and the ascension of Constantine who legalized and authorized Christianity for the whole of the Roman Empire.
