Some Clarification on my Part

I would like to clarify, and explain some of the information that is on this site. For one I would like to clarify that I am Roman Catholic (Latin Rite), I do not follow any Societies such that of SSPX, SSPV, and CMRI. I do not attend the Novus Ordo Service; do to the fact that it was misconstrued rather than translated from the Latin Rite, it has been completely altered and in doing so was done incorrectly. I would like to elucidate even further when It comes down to SSPX, SSPV, and CMRI; they follow the Traditional Latin Rite to a tee, in fact they follow the traditions and are more dependable with their exercising the Mass Of Christ Properly, they are not tainted by the Errors of the Second Vatican Council. Alas it is auspicious that they are not recognized by Rome. I sway more to the side of caution when it comes down to attendance of these Societies.

I would like to explain that some of the information here is from such organizations such as SSPX, SSPV, and CMRI. Why is this? you may ask if I do not attend these Societies, particularly SSPV, and CMRI. I will explain; first off I would like to ask you what is the first word that comes to mind when you hear the term conspiracy? The word is Theory most of the time at least (that is the way we were brought up, and is/was done intentionally by our Government). One must understand that there is a great difference between conspiracy, and conspiracy theory. A conspiracy is a secret agreement between two or more people to perform an unlawful act, a plot to carry out some harmful or illegal act (especially a political plot), and or a group of conspirators banded together to achieve some harmful or illegal purpose. A Conspiracy Theory is a tentative insight into the natural world; a concept that is not yet verified but that if true would explain certain facts or phenomena.

As I have stated about not attending these Societies, I would like to further explain my feelings and thoughts, I genuinely do not condone attendance to SSPV, and CMRI. SSPX on the other hand I feel is closer to the Church than these other two, and in fact might be reuniting with Rome making SSPX legit. I hear that there is to be a meeting between Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre (SSPX Founder) and Pope Benedict XVI in regards to a reunification between Rome and SSPX; this will be a day to celebrate if and when it does happen, (God Willing) Let us pray that everything goes well! Truth be told; If it came down to me being able only to attend between SSPX, SSPV, CMRI, or a Novus Ordo service (meaning these being the only to choose from in the area) I would choose to attend SSPX over all others.

These Societies are incorrect in the sense that they are not in union with Rome, but are correct mostly with keeping tradition, and exercising the Mass Of Christ Properly such as the Traditional Latin Mass does; with the Three Major Fields of Proper Intention, Proper Matter (Bread), and Proper Form. The Problem with the Novus Ordo (English Mass) is that it was not translated properly (if even translated at all); more so it was recreated from scratch, it was completely changed (you may look at the Missal Comparisons [PDF Format]). A perfect example of this is at The Consecration of the Holy Eucharist, in Latin the Priest says "for you and for *many", in the Novus Ordo the Priest says "for you and for **all", What is the Issue here one may ask? Well for one, Many has a limit (limited to those who are without mortal sin, those who are worthy to accept the Our Lord). All on the other hand stands for... well all; everyone (pagans, and those in mortal sin would be included in this category, unfortunately) thus making this fall into the category of improper form. It has been documented and witnessed that a priest and even a bishop from the Novus Ordo used Improper Matter (Doritos as the Holy Eucharist!). Unbelievable!

If you think about it the translations (that is if the Tridentine Masswas exactly translated in the first place) can get screwed up quite easily, for instance in English if we look at the word Grace ({+}Special Note)it stands for  “supernatural life,” “unmerited divine assistance,” “a prayer said before meals,” “an instance of human kindness,” “pardon,” “a reprieve,” “to be in one’s favor,” “ease and suppleness of movement,” “a charming trait,” “a title of address” (e.g., “Your Grace”), etc.

-Special Note-

{+}In the Douay-Rheims Bible (DRB) (Which was translated from the Latin Vulgate done by St Jerome. The Latin Vulgate has been the Official {literally Authentic} Roman Catholic Bible for almost 1600 years to date), the word Grace was translated from Latin: gratia, which in turn was translated to Latin from Greek: charis by St Jerome, note that charis was used by St. Paul and already had its specifically Christian theological meaning of “grace.” And St. Jerome corresponded to St. Paul’s meaning by translating charis into Latin as gratia, which in English becomes “grace.”  “Favor/favored” is one of the meanings for charis, but was not the one intended by St. Luke in Scripture.  The Douay-Rheims Bible was translated and not interpreted, which makes it the most accurate English Bible to date. All other bibles outside of the Douay-Rheims have been interpreted and not translated; for example [Luke 1:28 DRB] reads, "Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; Blessed art thou among women" as apposed to [Luke 1:28 NAB 1986] "Rejoice, O highly favored daughter!..." and, [Luke 1:28 NAB 1970] "Hailed, favored one!" In fact it would be impossible for someone of this present time to translate directly from the original Greek and Hebrew writings due to the fact that most of the scriptures are gone whether they were destroyed, lost, or even alter by the Pharisees, due to the fact that it was in more accordance to Christianity.

It does not take any particular mental acumen to distinguish the difference between being “full of grace” and “highly favored.”

"A person may be highly favored with any number of talents and abilities, or with good looks or plenty of money, and so forth.  But does that mean he or she is therefore “full of grace”? We understand Our Lady to be “full of grace” in the sense of being absolutely full of God’s divine life (Sanctifying Grace), so that there is no sin in her soul whatsoever.  What a difference in meanings!" -Tan Books-

[Deuteronomy 4:2] You shall not add to the word that I speak to you, neither shall you take away from it: keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.

[Proverbs 30:5-6] Every word of God is fire tried: he is a buckler to them that hope in him.Add not any thing to his words, lest thou be reproved, and found a liar:

"Is fire tried"... That is, most pure, like gold purified by fire.

Back to the subject of these Societies; they bring up valid points that every Catholic should be aware of, and that every Catholic should know about when it comes down to his/her faith (their teaching are still correct, when it comes to the Tridentine Mass {Pre-Vatican II}). If you take the time to really look up some of the facts that they produce you will in fact see that they speak of the truth, and it would be unwise for any Catholic to overlook these matters. If someone were to say that they feel and believe that these Societies are heretical, and schismatic and cannot be trusted and turn a blind eye to the truth, that person would be incorrect. For instance, if the Pope himself tells all Catholics to commit suicide (not that this will ever happen, keep in mind this is an example) if they want to obtain heaven; and you have someone from one of these organizations tell you that that is incorrect, and quote the Saints against the Pope telling you, "you will go strait to hell if you do this". Who is wrong? The Person who follows that heretical pope would be wrong, and would have benefited following the advice of these warnings. The Problem is that these Societies approached the matter with the Second Vatican Council errors and some of these Popes totally and completely incorrectly. As if a President is wrong he would be impeached, so a similar procedure must be done with the Pope if he is in Heresy.


I just wanted to make it clear that the facts are all there, and it is an unfortunate truth that there is a crisis presently in the Church. It is an issue that should not be overlooked, so please do keep an open mind, and if you feel that things sound impossible; do your research, don't just sit there and think that it is a mere lie. Do you Research!

-This is the point in which I am trying to get across-

[Matthew 16:18] And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

18 "Thou art Peter"... As St. Peter, by divine revelation, here made a solemn profession of his faith of the divinity of Christ; so in recompense of this faith and profession, our Lord here declares to him the dignity to which he is pleased to raise him: viz., that he to whom he had already given the name of Peter, signifying a rock, St. John 1. 42, should be a rock indeed, of invincible strength, for the support of the building of the church; in which building he should be, next to Christ himself, the chief foundation stone, in quality of chief pastor, ruler, and governor; and should have accordingly all fulness of ecclesiastical power, signified by the keys of the kingdom of heaven.

18 "Upon this rock"... The words of Christ to Peter, spoken in the vulgar language of the Jews which our Lord made use of, were the same as if he had said in English, Thou art a Rock, and upon this rock I will build my church. So that, by the plain course of the words, Peter is here declared to be the rock, upon which the church was to be built: Christ himself being both the principal foundation and founder of the same. Where also note, that Christ, by building his house, that is, his church, upon a rock, has thereby secured it against all storms and floods, like the wise builder, St. Matt. 7. 24, 25.

18 "The gates of hell"... That is, the powers of darkness, and whatever Satan can do, either by himself, or his agents. For as the church is here likened to a house, or fortress, built on a rock; so the adverse powers are likened to a contrary house or fortress, the gates of which, that is, the whole strength, and all the efforts it can make, will never be able to prevail over the city or church of Christ. By this promise we are fully assured, that neither idolatry, heresy, nor any pernicious error whatsoever shall at any time prevail over the church of Christ.

“Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world."  [Matthew 28: 20 DRB]

Those who break away from Rome contravene what our Lord has ensured us about his Church, that She will never fall.
