Sermon by Fr. Rafael, OSB

...concerning Fr. Pfeiffer's putative 'consecration' by the Feeneyite, Sedevacantist 'Thuc-garage-bishop' Neal Webster.

"... Do pray for Fr. Pfeiffer, he’s in a trap, the devil is trapping him. So let’s pray for him because he’s in grave danger for himself, for his seminarians and for the Church. For now, our attitude is to flee from him, to be far from him, and not to call him “bishop” for his own sake, and to pray for him. ..."

Statement from Fr. Hewko

Posted by The Editor on July 30, 2020 at 5:30 PM Comments comments (0)



JULY 30, 2020

“Then Jesus saith to them: All you shall be scandalized in Me this night. For it is written: ‘I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be dispersed.’” (St. Matthew 26:31)


This is a brief Statement denouncing the consecration of Fr. Joseph Pfeiffer by “Bishop” Neal Webster. This is a scandal for Holy Mother Church, the true Catholic Resistance and for the vocations at OLMC in Boston, Kentucky.


Let it be known that Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre would absolutely condemn this action and express, once again, the doubtfulness of the Thuc line of bishops, let alone any connection with Palmar de Troya in Spain, who have elected their own pope decades ago.


Let it be known that the priestly line of “Bishop” Webster is from: Bishop Thuc, to Clemente ("Pope" Gregory XVII!), Terrason, Hennenberry, to Webster.


The episcopal lineage is from: Bishop Thuc to Des Lauries to McKenna to Slupski to Webster.


“Bishop” Neal Webster is also a public supporter of the Feeneyite position on the denial of the Baptism of Blood and Desire (“Votum”;), which contradicts the constant Magisterium of the Church.


Once again, let us beg Our Lady of the Holy Rosary to crush the Church’s enemies. Let us hold the clear position of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre always faithful to Mother Church, her Traditional Magisterium, the Traditional Sacraments and the categorical refusal of doubtful sacraments and dangers to the Faith!


Once again, we see the sad casualties of a Pope and hierarchy failing in their duty! Indeed, when the shepherd is struck the sheep scatter!


In Christ the King,


Fr. David Hewko

A Message from Fr. Pfeiffer

Posted by The Editor on February 3, 2017 at 3:50 PM Comments comments (0)

Jan 26, 2017

Dear Friends in Christ!


The 5 acre property including 2 story 7 bedroom house and 4 car garage located within the original land was successfully purchased Jan 25, 2017, Feast of Conversion of St Paul on the anniversary of the death of Fr Urban Snyder, a Kentucky Trappist Monk from the nearby Monastery of Gethsemane (the first Trappist Monastery in USA est. 1848), who lived with Fr Hannifin. And the Pfeiffer Family on this same Seminary property from 1970s to early 90s. Fr. Urban was one of only 2 priests officially approved by Rome to be officially incardinated into SSPX (in 1972). He is one of our proofs that the SSPX was considered by Rome as a true Religious society. Fr Urban died January 25, 1995. He died of Altzhiemers and while forgeting almost all else was able to celebrate Mass until near the very end. He used to say with a twinkle in his eye many times: "You'll see that one day this area of the Holy Land of Kentucky will have a part to play in the restoration of the Church."


It is most providential to be allowed to receive the property back on his death anniversary. Fr Urban belonged to SSPX from 1972 to 1976.


We are very greatful to all who contributed to the $150,000 purchase without need of bank loan. Several different souls contacted me in the last 2 days to pay the difference if needed etc. We only have funds enough to go from week to week in our normal expenses, and then only barely. Yet in this period the generosity of Our Holy Mother Mary inspiring many of you, got us through our usual expenses (including several thousand dollar. repairs of our aging facility) as well as this purchase money over and above.


God bless all of you and please keep us in your prayers. Also, please remember the words with which Fr Urban Snyder used to begin each sermon that he repeated weekly, not remembering that he had said the same the week before.

"Keep your eye on Heaven as the end and goal of life. There is even a place in purgatory for those who have not desired heaven enough. And if you want Heaven you must love Christ with the most perfect Heart. But only Mary can love Christ with such a heart. But no one can love Mary with a right heart except her Divine Son. Therefore, ask Mary to give you her Heart with which to love her Son and ask her Divine Son to give you His Heart with which to love His Mother and between these two hearts you will find Heaven."

Like good traditional Catholics we used to complain, "There goes forgetful Fr Urban repeating again. When is he going to say something different?" He never did...


In Christ,

  Fr Joseph Pfeiffer

Seminary Appeal

Posted by The Editor on December 14, 2016 at 4:30 PM Comments comments (0)


Our Lady of Mount Carmel Seminary

Boston, Kentucky, USA

...comes the following appeal, to which we encourage you all to respond generously. 

An excellent opportunity has presented itself! The property adjacent to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Seminary is available for purchase. It includes a large six bedroom house and five acres of land.


Considering the current growth of the Seminary, which includes the six returning seminarians and one brother from the previous year, as well as new seminarians, this will be a wise and timely purchase.


The total purchase price is $150,000. The Australian as well as the United Kingdom SSPX Marian Corps are also involved in this effort and plans are to purchase this property mid-December of this year. Through this combined effort, hopes are to pay for this entire property in full without the need of a bank loan.


This provides us all with an ideal occasion to support these good priests, who are working tirelessly for the preservation of the Catholic Faith by forming our future priests to follow in the footsteps of Archbishop Lefebvre.


May Our Dear Lord bless all of our efforts through the intercession of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. St. Pius X, pray for us.


Please make check or money order payable to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Seminary and mail to:


E Supremi

PO Box 72

Saint Marys, KS 66536




Fathers Pfeiffer and Hewko thank you in advance for your generosity.

Rome approves of neo-SSPX ordinations

Posted by The Editor on July 27, 2016 at 8:15 AM Comments comments (0)

On 8th July 2016, DICI reported on the ordination of one Rev. Daniel Sabur to the priesthood by Bishop de Galarreta in the church of St. Nicolas du Chardonnet, Paris, which took place six days earlier. 

In a post on the French district website "La Porte Latine", one can read the text of the sermon on that occasion. Towards the end of his sermon, Bishop de Galarreta says the following:

"So the Babylonian Patriarchy, which is Chaldean, says that we are schismatics. And the Ordinary in France for the Oriental Churches says that we are illegal. And yet the Pope himself says that the Society, that we, are Catholics. So are we Catholics or are we schismatics? I have with me the letter given by His Excellency Bishop Fellay where the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith tells us, the Bishop says, that we can proceed with the ordinations without asking the permission of the local bishops; it is sufficient to give them the names of the ordinands, something which we will do of course, at the right opprtunity. So we're neither schismatic nor illegal."


With the possible exception of Pope Francis himself, nobody better represents the conciliar church than the "Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith", unworthy successor of what used to be the Holy Office. They are at the heart of the modernist, conciliar project. These are the very people who have been destroying the Church these past fifty years and who have been causing countless millions to lose the Faith. They also represent the people who illegally supressed the SSPX a mere four-and-a-half years after it was founded and "suspended" Archbishop Lefebvre the following year  - essentially for the crime of ordaining "renegade" priests in the Traditional Rite at Econe. Now these same people are (apparrently) quite happy for SSPX ordinations to go ahead, and will even go as far as committing their approval to paper. 


But don't worry - as we've been told so often, nothing has changed, the SSPX is the same as it always was, it still continues exactly the same fight as Archbshop Lefebvre, Bishop Fellay & co haven't changed their position one bit since the days of Archbishop Lefebvre, don't listen to the rumours and scaremongering from those who say they that a sell-out to modernist Rome has been gradually accomplished, there's no truth in that at all, where's your evidence, etc...
