What is a “Liturgical Abuse”?

The Liturgy is sacred and sacramental.  It is also a public, communal celebration in accordance with the entire Church, a “sacrament of unity”.  It is not a private act of the priest in which he is the celebrant and we are merely observers. We are active participants in the Mass. When abuses occur, everyone – the priest, the congregation, and the entire unity of the Church – is harmed.

Cardinal Theodore McCarrick

McCarrick’s victims: An Open Secret?

The priest told CNA that so well-known was McCarrick’s reputation, the priest said, that when McCarrick would accompany Cooke to visit the seminary there was a standing joke that they had to “hide the handsome ones” before he arrived.

Shedding a New Light on McCarrick’s Abuses

As noted in The National Catholic Register, on the same day Pope Francis broke his eight-month silence on the issue by proclaiming that he had no knowledge of McCarrick’s proclivities or of the restrictions placed on McCarrick by Pope St. John Paul II, McCarrick’s former secretary published excerpts of numerous correspondence showing that many in the Vatican had actual or constructive knowledge of both. Including Wuerl.  By McCarrick’s own hand.

Fr. Martin displaying devil horns

The Hubris, Arrogance, and Pride of Rev. James Martin, SJ

While Fr. Martin has carefully cultivated an image of “I’m just a nice loving priest standing up for the marginalized Catholics”, his vanity makes it difficult for him to hide behind this mask for long and we occasionally get a fleeting glimpse of the inner man: arrogant, immodest, superior, vain, and smugly self-important, particularly evident in the way he openly taunts faithful Catholics.

We Are The Laity

We are The Laity. We believe in the immutable and universal truths of the Holy Roman Catholic Church, as revealed by God and unfailingly taught by the Church for nearly two millennia.

But the Church is in crisis, unlike any it has faced in its long and glorious history. We can no longer afford to sit on the sidelines.

For too long the laity has permitted the leaders of the Catholic Church to allow some priests, religious and lay leaders to teach heresy from the ambo and in the classrooms, to lead others into error and sin, and create scandal in the Church established by Jesus Christ.

There are many good priests, religious and laity in our Church, and they are being harmed, some irreparably so, by the failure of the Church to stand up for its teachings. Our seminaries are empty, churches go without pastors, and too many followers of Jesus Christ are falling into apostasy, ignorant of the truth.

No more.

No longer will we stand by in silence as priests fail to teach the truth in our churches. No longer will we permit religious education teachers to lead our children into grievous error. No longer will we permit our leaders to allow and even promote the scourge of sexual sin in the seminaries and the priesthood. No longer will we suffer the efforts of our bishops and priests to change Church teaching to adapt to the “normalization” of homosexuality and dysfunctional gender theories.

We are the laity. We have a voice. And we will be heard.

The Saints

Intercede for Us

Pray for the intercession of the Holy Saints who have stood up to heresy, betrayal, and apostasy, who refused to back down from ecclesial authority that threatened to destroy the Church.

Mary, Our Mother

Pray for us

Pray for the intercession of our Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, for the faithful priests, religious and laity who are struggling against those who would undermine Christ's Church.

St. Francis

Come to Our Aid

St. Francis, the Lord sent you to rebuild His Church. Pray for us that we may again rebuild His Church, which has again fallen into ruin through apostasy, fear, greed, and sin.
