January 13th, 2019 – Sunday after Epiphany, Feast of the Holy Family:

Letter I
Vatican II and the hermeneutic law of Pope John XXIII
Vaticano II e la legge ermeneutica di Papa Giovanni XXIII

It is a fact that the most of you were ordained after the Second Vatican Council. At the opening of the Council, only the eldest among you were about 19 years old and maybe young seminarians, while others were still in their childhood or even among the growing population of “not-yet-born”. Therefore, the Council is becoming more and more a historical event of which one has only second hand knowledge, which confronts us with contradictory ways of understanding the underlying hermeneutics: ‘continuity’ and ‘discontinuity’ being the main problems.
E’ un dato di fatto che la maggior parte di voi siano stati ordinati sacerdoti dopo il Concilio Vaticano Secondo. All’apertura del Concilio solo i più anziani tra voi avevano circa 19 anni e forse erano giovani seminaristi, mentre gli altri erano ancora nella loro infanzia o addirittura fanno parte dell’attuale crescente popolazione di coloro che “non erano ancora nati”. Perciò, il Concilio sta diventando sempre più un evento storico del quale si ha solo una conoscenza indiretta che ci mette di fronte a modi contraddittori di sottolineare principalmente le ermeneutiche della 'continuità' e della 'discontinuità'.

Background attached to the first letter
Vatican II, a Council in Threefold?

What were the stated goals and objectives of the council? The primary rule set by Pope John XXIII in his opening address lays out the substantial law for the Council itself as well as for interpreting the Council documents. The primary rule was that the council was to ‘never depart from the sacred patrimony of truth received from the Fathers’. Accordingly, the Council should be understood as a renewal not only in a kind of continuity with, but more explicit in unity and in accordance with the Doctrine taught by the Fathers. Consider the following quotes taken from the openings address on October 11, 1962
- - - - -

February 2nd, 2019 -- Presentation of the Lord - Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary
2 febbraio 2019 -- Presentazione del Signore - Purificazione della Beata Vergine Maria

Letter II
The stakes are too high to simply ignore this fact; a proposed solution
La posta in gioco è troppo alta per ignorare semplicemente questo fatto; una proposta di soluzione

Because the problem started due to the lack of 'a gracious collaboration concerning the inspiration of the Holy Spirit' and continued with the introduction of the vague 'spirit of the Council' in place of the clear hermeneutic rule set by Pope John XXIII, this problem is in essence of a supernatural origin.
... A public Confession of Faith shall be made by all the Clergy and Hierarchy. This can follow the model of an extended Creed, like the 1968 Creed of Pope Paul VI (Motu Proprio Solemnia Hac Liturgia, June 1968)....
Poiché il problema è iniziato a causa della mancata 'condiscendente collaborazione su ispirazione dello Spirito Santo' ed è proseguito con l'introduzione, al posto della chiara regola ermeneutica, del vago 'spirito del Concilio' imposto da Papa Giovanni XXIII, questo problema ha in sostanza un'origine soprannaturale.
... Una Confessione pubblica di Fede dovrebbe essere fatta da tutto il Clero e la Gerarchia. Questo potrebbe essere fatto seguendo il modello di un Credo esteso, come quello di Papa Paolo VI (Motu Proprio Solemnia Hac Liturgia, Giugno 1968). ...

a surprising and unexpected support by two Cardinals

Cardinal Burke launches his personal website


'Welcome to my personal website. I am pleased to communicate with you. It is my hope that your visit will be a source of encouragement to you. For my part, the website is a means of carrying out more fully my mission as a Bishop and Cardinal in the Roman Catholic Church, especially the teaching of the Church’s doctrine and discipline. In a particular way, I hope that your visit will inspire you to pray for me. Please let me know of special intentions which you wish me to remember in prayer. May God bless you and your home.'

Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke

Cardinal Müller issues a Manifest of Faith


As described by Sandro Magister:

If there is a forerunner of this 'Manifesto of faith' from Cardinal Gerhard Müller. released today all over the world, it is the 'Credo of the People of God' proclaimed in 1968 by Paul VI.
Then as now, the Church was in a tempest and its very faith was wavering. Paul VI felt it his duty to reaffirm the pillars of Church doctrine. Today, giving this public testimony of faith is the cardinal who was prefect of the congregation for the doctrine of the faith from 2012 to 2017.
Müller decided to take this step at the impetus of requests from 'many bishops, priests, religious and laity of the Catholic Church,' concerned over the 'ever more widespread confusion in the teaching of the faith'.
As an outline for the 'Credo of the People of God' Paul VI adopted the 'Credo' of the council of Nicaea. Cardinal Müller has instead taken as the guideline for this 'Manifesto of faith' the Catechism of the Catholic Church, to which the numbers in parentheses in the text refer

the Open Letter by the Cardinals Burke and Brandmüller to the Presidents of the Bishop Conferences, gathering the coming days in the Vatican on the sexual abuses.

Sexual abuse is blamed on clericalism. But the first and primary fault of the clergy does not rest in the abuse of power but in having gone away from the truth of the Gospel. The even public denial, by words and by acts, of the divine and natural law, is at the root of the evil that corrupts certain circles in the Church.

Letter III
a third Open Letter to all diocese Cardinals, Archbishops, Bishops and Auxiliary Bishops

bugnini May the acts by these Cardinals encourage you to present the result of my analysis concerning the roots of the 'confusion, bitterness in human relations and fratricidal wars' in the Church since Vatican II in the first letter and the proposed solution in the second letter to our Holy Father!

Furthermore, I would like to use the opportunity of this letter to present you a new unexpected confirmation of some details of my analyses, that I discovered last month in Yves Chiron’s biography of Mgr. Bugnini

Should a Priest Introduce the Usus Antiquior to a Congregation That Doesn’t Request It?


by Peter Kwasniewski
January 2019

Let’s begin with the most obvious point, which nevertheless still needs to be said. As per Summorum Pontificum, if the faithful themselves request the traditional Latin Mass, the pastor must provide it for them, or at least make arrangements for another priest to provide it. He is not allowed simply to say no. He might say “yes, but first I have to learn it” (and then the laity, already prepared, will tell him that they will cover all his expenses); or “yes, but at this difficult juncture — with the new elementary school, the prison ministry, the nursing home, and the recent death of the vicar — I won’t be able to learn it, so I will ask around and try to get a Mass started for you next month.And of course, the pastor will always make such responses with a smile and gratitude for the devotion of his faithful to the rich traditions of the Catholic Church.

Fruits of Vatican II, part I

Observational Analysis

A Wilful Ignorance of an Ongoing Catastrophe?

The analysis of the post Vatican II vocation crisis in the Catholic Church consists of two stages. This first stage is an observational analysis, in which, now that it has been over fifty years since the conclusion of the Second Vatican Council, we can see that some religious groups are surviving while others are stagnant or dying.  Some inspire new vocations, resulting in an increase of the number of religious, while others lack such ability to inspire and are suffering a lack of vocations.  The latter situation leads to a continuel process of aging and declining membership that can ultimately be terminal. But each religious group has charted its own course that accordig to St. Matthew, "By theis fruits you will know them"
Dependent on the developments during the period of dramatic decline in the first decade after the Second Vatican Council one can finally distinguish 6 Categories

Process Analysis

Renewal in Unity and Accordance with the Doctrine or False Interpretations?

The analysis of the post Vatican II vocation crisis in the Catholic Church consists of two stages. This second stage concerns a substantial analysis of the phenoma observed in the first stage. It looks at the sources behind the processes that led to the observed phenomena by overlooking the pre-conciliar period as well as the Second Vatican Council itself and the aftermath to the present. What steps can be taken to prevent religious groups for dying out altogether. The authors assert that internal measures should be taken to strengthen the internal spiritual quality, but this can only be done by understanding the roots of the crisis.
This analysis reveals the Roots of the Crisis in the Church.


Recent letters to Rome

November 2016

letter to Francis

Recently, last September 21, unknown of the Dubio that was sent to His Holiness Pope Francis by four Cardinals on september 19, a letter was sent to His Holiness begging him to make a humble request for Mercy to the Holy Spirit by the Church.
Also in the recent past two more letters has been sent to the Congregation for Doctrine of Faith.
* a letter for Clarity on Vatican II (2013)
* a letter discussing on Vaticn II on the subject how to understand the term "failing" regarding a Council?


Risk Analysis on Vatican II

September 2016


This analysis focuses mainly on the remarkable statements about the Council by Pope Benedict XVI, -now Pope-Emeritus- during the last year of his Pontificate (2012). These statements appear to be the first time that such criticism concerning the Council has been published by the Magisterium including: (1) the lack of a specific problem to resolve, (2) the expectation to shape the future world, (3) the failed analysis of the vague expressions 'today's world', 'modern era' or 'modern world', (4) the renewed understanding of States as a result of developments of a philosophical thought only and (5) speaking of other religions solely in a positive way. Pope Benedict XVI in his preface to the book 'Joseph Ratzinger, Zur Lehre des Zweiten Vatikanischen Konzils', very clearly draw attention to failures of Vatican II. That he should write such statements as reigning Pontiff is unprecedented, very significant and of grave concern

Clarity of Vatican II

September 2015


A failed analysis is intrinsically connected to a failed search into the Truth

Referring to the preface about Vatican II by Pope Benedict XVI concerning the collection of his writings at the time of the Council (2012) the following quotes were most remarkable:
Behind the vague expression today’s world lies the question of the relationship with the modern era. To clarify this, it would have been necessary to define more clearly the essential features that constitute the modern era. Schema XIII did not succeed in doing this and it failed to offer substantial clarification on this point.

The Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate and the defense of the Motu proprio Summorum pontificum

Due to the incorrectly undertaken Apostolic Visitation by Mons. Vito Angelo Todisco and his manipulation of the collected data, under pretences as well as vague and false accusations the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate [FFI] are suffering from suppression and psychological violence.
Father Fidenzio Volpi OFMCap, appointed as Commissioner since July 2013 died recently, June 7th 2015 after some strokes. He has not brought peace and mercy but even more suffering to many Friars and Sisters of the Franciscans of the Immaculate as well as the associated laypeople.
