Do you think Pope John Paul I was murdered or died naturally?
And why is the papal tiara no longer worn?
We think that John Paul I was probably murdered. We think this because of the conflicting reports that the Vatican has issued surrounding his death. But just because he was probably murdered does not mean that he was a good man or even a valid Pope, of course. It is a fact that John Paul I was a heretic who embraced the religious indifferentism of Vatican II and even petitioned for approval of the birth control pill. The Vatican II Antipopes don’t wear the Papal Tiara as a symbolic way to show the enemies of the Church that they are infiltrators and on their side. Paul VI’s giving away of the Tiara (a picture of which can be seen in our photo gallery) was an obvious message to the world that he was a Satanic agent trying to give away the house, which is why he abolished the oath against Modernism, the profession of Faith of Trent, the Index of Forbidden books, changed the Mass, etc., etc., etc.
I have learned much from your research. I was raised PreVat. II and attended 16 years of preVat. II education (including Thomistic theology) and must admit I was royally duped. But I do have the experience of being raised in the Roman Catholic Church. Now I watch the infighting between you… SSPX, CMRI, CFN, the Remnant, etc. and I am saddened that the Traditional Catholics can't come to the same truths - there are only the same truths in the Roman Catholic Church. How can you all be right??? If you all would just stick to the infallible teachings of the Popes from the Chair of St. Peter - the authority of Holy Mother Church - and Holy Scripture, we wouldn't be in this mess! It's taken me three years of much reading and research to reaquaint myself with the true Faith - after being so involved in the Conciliar Church for 35 years as well as the Charasmatic Renewal - had to get my Catholic thinking back! I now feel ready to go to family, friends, priests in the Conciliar Church with this Truth, but if and when they would decide to go Traditional, where do I send them. They'll find out, like I have, that there is all this infighting, and it surely won't be easy for them to find the Truth when there is so much disagreement. Perhaps we all need to stop and pray and let God be God and lead us. None of us has all the Truth! (i.e., I've heard others criticize your stance on LaSalette and Fatima. the parts of each that haven't been approved by the Church, i.e. Tuy) God continue to bless you and your work. You have done a phenomenal job for Our Lord.
Thank you for your interest. The unfortunate divisions among those who profess to be traditional Catholics arise, simply, because those people you described above reject Catholic dogmatic teaching in one or more areas. So division from them in these areas of Faith is not desirable, but it is necessary, simply because they don’t accept the truth in totality. If all “traditionalists” would accept the dogmatic teachings of the Church without compromise, then there would be no division among traditionalists. But since this is not the case, there must be division from those who deny the truth, as there can be no unity with heresy. As Our Lord says, I came to not to bring peace upon the earth, but the sword – to divide (Matthew 10:34-37).
Pope Eugene IV professed that even if a protestant or orthodox sheds his blood for Christ, he is still damned unless he incorporates himself with the Roman Catholic Church before his death. My question is " Isnt this saying contrary to Sacred scripture? Our Lord clearly stated "Whoever saves his life shall lose it, and whoever loses his life for My sake shall gain it. Furthermore, Jesus stressed "Blessed are you when they insult you, revile you and persecute you and speak all kinds of evil against you for My sake, be glad and rejoice during that day for your rewards are very great in heaven.
Please reply. Thanks and God bless.
Pope Eugene IV said that no one, even if he sheds blood for the name of Christ, can be saved, unless he has remained within the bosom and unity of the Church. Many people shed blood IN THE NAME OF CHRIST, but not for Christ. The Protestants who reject the one true Catholic Faith and Christ's clear teaching on Confession (John 20:23), the Eucharist (John 6:54), the necessity of Baptism (John 3:5), etc. reject Christ’s truth, so their act of martyrdom is not for Him, but for Christ in name only– if it were truly for Him then they would accept His truth.

What Mass do you accept at the Monastery?
Yours in Christ,
We accept the Mass of Pope St. Pius V; we don’t approve of the invalid Novus Ordo, of course, and we don’t approve of the use of the 1962 Missal, the Mass of John XXIII – which is the same as the Mass of St. Pius V but with St. Joseph’s name illegally added to the Canon (as well as some other minor changes). We acknowledge that the 1962 Missal is valid, since the addition of St. Joseph to the Canon has no bearing on validity, only legality. We also believe that in this time of crisis one can attend a Mass celebrated by a validly ordained priest who uses the 1962 Missal, as long as the person does not agree with or support the priest. Here is an interesting quote relating to this issue:
“In order to further the liturgical reform that Hebblethwaite [John XXIII’s biographer] claimed John ‘favored,’ the Pope ‘added to the Roman Canon the name of St. Joseph – beati Joseph, eiusdem Virginis Sponsi – a pious ruse to show that the text was not immutable [unchangeable],’ according to Hebblethwaite.” (Mark Fellows, Fatima in Twilight, p. 177)
In other words, according to John XXIII’s biographer, the whole reason for John XXIII to add St. Joseph’s name to the Canon was to show the Canon was not unchangeable and to pave the way for what later came with Antipope Paul VI – the New Mass.
