  • I know this is a bit late, but here are some devotions for the Holy Souls composed by the great St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori, found in an appendix of a very rare edition of The Glories of Mary (Vol. II, trans. Rev. Fr. Eugene Grimm; New York: Benziger Brothers, 1887).

    Please ignore all that I have written regarding sedevacantism.

  • This is peachy, Hobbledehoy! I thank you for it.

    Why does anything written before about 1960 ring so much truer than almost anything written after that? These old documents have such an authority about them, and a sincerity, and a lack of self-doubt, that they're like a tall glass of cool water in the middle of a desert.

    Even if I didn't know about the Vat2 debacle, I would still be able to notice that a polar shift in thinking occurred somewhere in the early 60's, just by reading the literature that each period produced. Everything written since then, especially but not exclusively related to religion, seems to have lost all of its flavor.

    I can't help but think that even the Heavens moved when the False Church took over the Vatican.  :devil2:
    St. Jude, who, disregarding the threats of the impious, courageously preached the doctrine of Christ,
    pray for us.
