Pilgrimage For Restoration 2009

This weekend my family and I had the great grace of attending the last two days of the Pilgrimage for Restoration in up state New York.

From the Official Web Site


"In the footsteps of the Martyrs!


Our Blessed Lady is the dispenser of all the favors which the goodness of God grants to the sons of Adam. St. Philip Neri


What is the Pilgrimage for Restoration?In its fourteenth year, the annual pilgrimage is a spiritual journey of the faithful to the place where Saints Isaac Jogues, René Goupil and John LaLande were martyred 367 years ago. It is conducted in honor of Christ Our King, for the restoration of new Christendom, and in reparation for sins against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Invoking the intercession of America's saints and martyrs, we desire that the Catholic Faith restore every dimension of our lives: our hearts, families, workplaces, parishes, neighborhoods, cities, dioceses, the American nations.

The pilgrimage is an exercise of penance and prayer, of contradiction and restoration, having both a personal and social character. Modeled on the annual Pentecost pilgrimage to Notre-Dame de Chartres, France, we embrace the traditional doctrine & practice of Holy Church, with all its demands.


A special intention of the pilgrimage is the restoration of the Catholic family, civil society and the Latin liturgical tradition. We hope thereby to show our attachment to the Church's Tradition and the riches it contains, not with the intention of reverting to some by-gone era, but rather of drawing benefits from the ancient sources and putting them to work in the world today."



"Theme of Pilgrimage 2009Restoring True Devotion to Mary, Mother of the Priesthood


But what will they be like, these servants, these slaves, these children of Mary? They will be ministers of the Lord who, like a flaming fire, will en kindle everywhere the fires of divine love. They will become, in Mary's powerful hands, like sharp arrows, with which she will transfix her enemies. They will be as the children of Levi, thoroughly purified by the fire of great tribulations and closely joined to God. They will carry the gold of love in their heart, the frankincense of prayer in their mind and the myrrh of mortification in their body. They will bring to the poor and lowly everywhere the sweet fragrance of Jesus, but they will bring the odour of death to the great, the rich and the proud of this world.
They will be like thunder-clouds flying through the air at the slightest breath of the Holy Spirit. Attached to nothing, surprised at nothing, troubled at nothing, they will shower down the rain of God's word and of eternal life. They will thunder against sin, they will storm against the world, they will strike down the devil and his followers and for life and for death, they will pierce through and through with the two-edged sword of God's word all those against whom they are sent by Almighty God.
They will be true apostles of the latter times to whom the Lord of Hosts will give eloquence and strength to work wonders and carry off glorious spoils from his enemies. They will sleep without gold or silver and, more important still, without concern in the midst of other priests, ecclesiastics and clerics. Yet they will have the silver wings of the dove enabling them to go wherever the Holy Spirit calls them, filled as they are with the resolve to seek the glory of God and the salvation of souls. Wherever they preach, they will leave behind them nothing but the gold of love, which is the fulfilment of the whole law."
-- St. Louis De Montfort, True Devotion to Mary; I, ch. 1, art. 4., nos. 56-58

Gloria TV News

Pay close attention to the piece about possible liturgical reforms.

Stronger attention on Eucharistic Adoration,
Use of Latin,
Holy Communion on the Tongue,
and re introduction of Mass Ad Orientem(priest faces the Alter instead of the people).

The Benedict Revolution is in full swing. Laus Tibi, Christe!

Feast of the Assumption of The Blessed Virgin Mary, Immaculate Conception Church, Fitchburg, MA

Immaculate Conception Church in Fitchburg, Massachusetts celebrated the holy feast of the Assumption of Mary with a Missa Cantata in the ancient Roman Rite. Holy Mass was followed by a Baptism, also according to the traditional rite. It was glorious. We we favored by the ministry of a priest of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter who offered the holy sacrifice and administered the sacrament of Baptism. A few photos-
