Hello, I talked to someone on the phone the other day at your location about copies of 202 heresies of Vatican II that I'd like to get some copies of. I went to your web site to check you out. Wow. I would love to sit down and ask you so many questions. To begin with I have just read the info about fr. gruner. That was an eye opener. Most of what I read fills in so many gaps and questions I have had for some time in the back of my mind. And of course I would first ask who was the last good pope?
And more importantly, you must feel awfully alone out there if all you say is true. And that narrow road to heaven must be even emptier than I previously thought. I feel I might be on that road, but my poor flesh keeps getting in the way. I try for an austere manner of life devouted to doing the will of God, but my worldly self likes to many comforts. I wish we lived close so I could visit and talk. No one else seems to be speaking God's language.
I would like to say the Liturgy of the hours but wonder if there is a pre-vatican II version of the liturgy available anywhere in the full four volumes leather. Any ideas where I might find one or is reading the new version better than not at all? God bless you in your work. steve reising
Thanks for the e-mail, Steve. The traditional divine office is available from out of print booksellers; however, we believe that it’s more important for laypeople to make sure they’re praying the full 15 decades of the Rosary each day. Further, if any Catholics haven’t read True Devotion to Mary by St. Louis De Montfort (available on our store) or haven’t made the consecration to Mary which he prescribes – or if you made it a long time ago and haven’t renewed it – get the book and make or renew the consecration to Mary which he sets forth.
St. Louis De Montfort (+1710): “….there are some very sanctifying interior practices for those whom the Holy Ghost calls to high perfection. These may be expressed in four words: to do all things by Mary, with Mary, in Mary and for Mary; so that we may do them all the more perfectly by Jesus, with Jesus, in Jesus and for Jesus.” (True Devotion to Mary #257) St. Louis De Montfort (+ c. 1710): “By this practice [the True Devotion to Mary which he teaches], faithfully observed, you will give Jesus more glory in a month than by any other practice, however difficult, in many years…” (True Devotion to Mary #222) St. Louis De Montfort (+1710): “Blessed Alan de la Roche who was so deeply devoted to the Blessed Virgin had many revelations from her and we know that he confirmed the truth of these revelations by a solemn oath. Three of them stand out with special emphasis: the first, that if people fail to say the Hail Mary (the Angelic Salutation which has saved the world) out of carelessness, or because they are lukewarm, or because they hate it, this is a sign that they will probably and indeed shortly be condemned to eternal punishment.” (Secret of the Rosary, p. 45)
