"Uncompromising Catholic Militancy"
[In response to someone who begged him (Saint Pius X) to "go soft" on the Modernists, He retorted]: "Kindness is for fools! They want them to be treated with oil, soap, and caresses but they ought to be beaten with fists! In a duel you don't count or measure the blows, you strike as you can! War is not made with charity, it is a struggle a duel. If Our Lord were not terrible he would not have given an example in this too. See how he treated the Philistines, the sowers of error, the wolves in sheep's clothing, the traitors in the temple. He scourged them with whips!"

Note: TCW's post (on where to receive licit confessions) has been re-scheduled for July.
In Today's Catholic World carries the approbation in writing of the (True) Petrine Hierarchy in exile i.e., connected with Pope Gregory XVII. It faithfully adheres to the rules for Catholic Journals mandated by Leo XIII in the Apostolic Constitution Officiorum ac Munerum, January 25, 1897 - so heavily re-stressed by Pius X in Pascendi Dominici Gregis, September 8, 1907.
St. Ignatius of Antioch - "Let no one do anything of concern to the Church without the bishop. Let that be considered a valid Eucharist which is celebrated by the bishop or by one whom he ordains [i.e., a presbyter]. Wherever the bishop appears, let the people be there; just as wherever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church." (Letter to the Smyrneans 8:2 - 110 A.D.)

Our Lady's words to Jacinta Marto shortly before the little seer died:
"More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason."
"Certain fashions will be introduced that will offend Our Divine Lord very much."
GUARDING HOLY PURITY

The Editor has been on a several week trip across (vice ridden) America - Our Lady of Fatima told the seer Jacinta Marto: "More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason." To counteract the immoral "dress code" of this drowning country. TCW is posting a most important "Prayer to Preserve Holy Purity" composed by the Angelic Doctor.
Prayer to St. Thomas Aquinas
(To Preserve Holy Purity)
"O holy, innocent Master, thou leader of the most pure of soul, I now begin to understand what gained for thee the title, 'Angel of the Schools.' The eye of an angel must indeed be able to contemplate that which constitutes an angel's blessedness. Well didst thou understand that saying of the Holy Spirit: 'Wisdom will not enter into a malicious soul, nor dwell in a body subject to sin.' Thou hast told me that the heart that gives itself up to sensuality, must be weak, bad, and subject to low instincts. I believe thee, and I will follow thy counsels. Never will I have aught to do with what might endanger the lovely, the precious purity of my soul. When the tempter suddenly appears, may I like thee in the hour of thy fiery and memorable victory, seize the flaming brand of holy love with which to put my enemy to flight. I solemnly promise thee, my holy Leader, to flee from every shadow of danger, to be watchful in the choice of my books, my friends, my conversations, my recreations, yes, even in my food and drink as far as in me lies.
But do thou, O heavenly Protector, obtain for me the divine assistance in those encounters from which so few come forth victorious. I will conquer, I must conquer! Protect me from whatever could wound purity in the least degree and keep me in the love of this beautiful virtue till the end, that I may belong to those who in heaven thank thee for thy guard over them and contribute to thy glory, O thou triumphant Leader and renowned Hero of virginity! Amen."

Devotion to the Most Holy Name of Mary
"Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the Antichrist... The Church will be in eclipse..."
(Words spoken by Our Lady of La Salette to Melanie Calvat in 1846 A.D., a fully approved Church Apparition)
