Dear Friends of Catholic Tradition,
Pope St. Pius X (r. 1903-1914), whose feast is kept on September 3, becomes ever more relevant each day. The Pope who rose from the ranks of the Italian peasantry to the throne of St. Peter keenly observed the events at the turn of the 20th century and warned the world where it was headed. He wrote in E Supremi, his inaugural encyclical, in 1903:
“[A]s might be expected we find extinguished among the majority of men all respect for the Eternal God, and no regard paid in the manifestations of public and private life to the Supreme Will — nay, every effort and every artifice is used to destroy utterly the memory and the knowledge of God.
When all this is considered there is good reason to fear lest this great perversity may be as it were a foretaste, and perhaps the beginning of those evils which are reserved for the last days; and that there may be already in the world the ‘Son of Perdition’ of whom the Apostle speaks (2 Thess. 2:3).” (E Supremi, nn. 4-5)
In the Church, he waged war against the Modernists who sought to remake the Church of Christ into their own image. In the world, he denounced the secularist, naturalist liberals who worked towards the complete dismantling of the remnants of Christendom. He predicted not only the current crisis in the Church (if Modernism were to be given the free reign it achieved at Vatican II) and the devastation in the world wrought by two world wars and our current age of perpetual wars. The only solution to this two-headed hydra was “To Restore All Things in Christ,” which he took as his papal motto.
For nearly three decades, Catholic Family News has worked to play a small role in this restoration of all things in Christ. We strive firstly to preserve the memory and knowledge of what must be restored. We cannot restore what we do not know. Secondly, we expose the lies and falsehoods of the Modernists and secularists who have infiltrated Church and State.
These grandchildren of the Modernists and secularists of St. Pius X’s day have become more bold, more aggressive, and more proud than their counterparts in 1903. They now seek to silence all rational thought in Church and State. Anyone who opposes their apparent complete conquest of Church and State must be persecuted and silenced. I say “apparent” because we have the word of Our Lord, confirmed by His Most Holy Mother at Fatima, that their conquest will never be complete. The Triumph of the Immaculate Heart will dawn someday and these infiltrators will be swept away in the restoration of all things in Christ.
Against all human odds, we have survived to continue this two-fold mission. We will continue calling for the restoration of all things in Christ so long as we can, using every resource to evade their unjust censorship and persecution. To support this mission, please consider subscribing, renewing your subscription, or purchasing a gift subscription for someone you know (see HERE). Not only does a subscription provide funds necessary to keep CFN going but it places in someone’s hands inspiring and informative content once a month. It provides resources for all of our free and publicly accessible content in print, video, and audio. We could not survive without you, faithful subscribers!
In Christo Rege,
