We rightly revere the Holy Innocents as martyrs; but those Crusaders
who left all and gave their lives with most sincere desire to restore
the right of pilgrims to worship in the Holy Land are not martyrs.
In this small treatise, originally presented at a conference in 1928
on the English Martrys, Fr. Knox explains the criteria for Christian
martyrdom with clarity and with examples. He traces for us the evolution
of the word and the ideal of Christian martyrdom. He argues against
the Modernist heresies with deny absolute truths. This little booklet
enlightens and entertains - yet all the while reminding us that some
embraced the crown of martyrdom for the cause of Christ!

Errors and New Labels

Fulton J. Sheen, Ph.D.
Sheen said in 1931:
This book is an attempt to judge contemporary ideas in the field of
morals, religion, science, evolution, sociology, psychology and humanism
in the light of that philosophical daylight called 'common sense.'
If at times it criticizes certain views on the grounds of their unreasonableness,
it does so to prepare for a view which seems more reasonable. If at
other times it shows that what is wrong with a certain philosophical
outlook is that it emphasizes a part against the whole, it does so
in order to suggest a view that is more Catholic in the sense of being
the whole truth.
The extraordinary thing for the reader here at the beginning of the
twenty-first century is that many of the "old errors" of
seventy-five years ago are still cropping up with "new labels"
today. There is no sympathy shown in these pages for those who believe
that everything that is modern is best, nor with those who believe
that everything that is modern is bad. The book does attempt to show,
however, that what is often called "modern" is only a new
label for an old error, and that what is called "behind the times"
is really "beyond time" and outside of fashions because
it is an expression of eternal truth.

two essays address the degree of infallibility enjoyed by acts of
the ordinary magisterium. At the time of Pius XII, when the first
essay was written, the authority of the ordinary magisterium was downplayed,
especially by the "new theologians"; after Vatican II, it
is so exaggerated that some now claim the Pope can contradict and
reverse the teaching of his predecessors.
The first essay, written by Dom Paul Nau, OSB (Solesmes) in 1756 lays
down the groundwork for a theological understanding of the Church's
Ordinary and Universal Magisterium, based especially upon the teaching
of the First Vatican Council.

The question of discerning a vocation is agonized over by many generous

Father Butler shows that this type of question shows a totally wrong
approach to a religious vocation - an approach that began with misguided
theology in the 20th century, which then trickled down to the popular
level, confusing both aspirants and spiritual directors.

Catholic Church and Salvation

Msgr. Joseph C. Fenton
Joseph Clifford Fenton.
WITHOUT doubt, one of the thorniest and most easily misunderstood
doctrines of the Catholic Church is that of salvation. One immediately
thinks of the many controversies concerning the difficult phrase,
"extra ecclesiam nulla salus" - outside the Church there
is no salvation." Though not concerned exclusively with this
issue, The Catholic Church and Salvation is an important contribution
to understanding it.
Monsignor Fenton, well-known editor of The American Ecclesiastical
Review, divides his work into two parts. In the first, he presents,
comments upon and interprets the documents of the magisterium pertaining
to the Catholic doctrine on salvation and the Church. In the second
part, he analyzes the concept of salvation, and shows that the doctrine
of salvation is determined by, and depends upon, the very nature of
the Church. The last chapter is a historical inquiry into the origins
of certain inadequate theological teachings in this matter.
Because of the great importance of the questions under discussion,
Monsignor Fenton's The Catholic Church and Salvation will be of great
interest to theologians, apologists, missionaries, indeed, to all

Michael Muller, C.Ss.R.
DOGMA: "Extra Ecclesiam Nullus omnino Salvatur?"
by Fr. Michael Mueller, C.SS.R.
"Outside of the Church there is positively no Salvation,"
declared the Fourth Lateran Council in 1215. Pope Innocent III would
write, "Not to oppose erroneous Doctrine is to approve of it,
and not to defend at all true Doctrine is to suppress it."
A book copyrighted in 1888? Another book on this delicate topic??
Yes. Some say the best one yet. Fr. John Fullerton ordered Angelus
Press to reprint it but another publishing house beat us to the punch!
The author was a famous Redemptorist who had written renowned books
on the Blessed Eucharist, education, and a nine-volume set on God.
One Fr. Mueller book (1875) explained the Church's teaching on how
and who gets to Heaven. It drew attacks from lying liberal theologians.
This book was the definitive reply to these critics.
His refutation is not a pro-Feeneyite catechism. By strengthening
his arguments against his critics, however, he has written a convincing
positive treatment to illuminate those disbelieving in baptisms other
than by water.
Like no other, Fr. Mueller systematically follows St. Thomas Aquinas
and the constant teaching of the Church to arrive at his clear and
balanced conclusions to this oft-rehearsed question. Though it names
names and places of 125 years ago, the forensics and principles are
timeless and useful today. The 56 pages of Part I confirms the teaching
of no salvation outside the Catholic Church. Part II deduces from
this first part and in 131 pages defines those who live in heresy
without being guilty of heresy. An Introduction of 67 pages sets the
stage of the debate.
• What Protestant belief in Christ is • What Catholic
faith is • Eight kinds of conscience • Invincible or inculpable
ignorance neither saves not damns a person • What heretics are

The Davies Liturgical Revolution Series
Out of Print
Davies' monumental Mass Trilogy!
Cranmer's Godly Order
Liturgical Revolution: Vol. I
Michael Davies shows that Henry VIII and Thomas Cranmer understood
that if you change the way people pray, then you will change what
believe. Cranmer's Book of Common Prayer (1549) began a process that
changed the Catholic Church in England to the Anglican sect. Davies
these changes to the modern liturgical "reforms" and the
similarities are shocking.
Cranmer's Godly Order is a classic...revised and expanded by Mr. Davies
during his final years. Drawing upon the best of Catholic and Protestant
scholarship and on primary sources, Davies traces the steps by which
the ancient Catholic Mass became the Lord's Supper in the Church of
England. And these steps were changes - as Popes and Reformers alike
were at pains to stress.
Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury under Henry VIII and Edward
VI and architect of the new liturgy, was a master of the theology
Mass, and hated it. The parallels between the Anglican liturgy and
the New Mass of the 1960s will be uncomfortably obvious!
Pope John's Council
Liturgical Revolution: Vol. II
For those who have read it, it is already a classic. Few books can
rival its clarity and objectivity. An incredible pattern emerges:
pastoral Council hijacked by a clique of theological liberals who
consign to the trash the documents of the Council Preparatory Committee
(of which Archbishop Lefebvre was a member), shut off the microphones
of those who attempt to defend the Faith (suffering this indignity
less than the illustrious Cardinal Ottaviani), and co-opting the media
so that their spin became "reality"?
Pope Paul's New Mass
Liturgical Revolution: Vol. III
It is the unparalleled history of how
the New Mass was devised, created, and implemented. Beyond this, a
list of the manifold liturgical problems of the past generation is
documented: from Mass facing the people and revolutionary legislation
to Communion in the hand and the problem of the Offertory. For over
thirty years this book has been considered the most thorough critique
of the New Mass in the English language. Michael Davies, former
president of Una Voce, was one of the earliest critics of the liturgical
changes in the Mass after Vatican II. Archbishop Lefebvre recommended
many of his early works, including the most comprehensive documentation
and defense of the foundation of the SSPX: Apologia Pro Marcel
Lefevbre (in three volumes). The current president of Una Voce is
Mr. Leo Darroch.
“By the mid-1970s the crisis within the Church was deepening.
In his general research on the various novelties that were being introduced
had amassed a huge amount of data on the Council and how the great
majority of the Fathers had been deceived by the well-orchestrated
plan of a
clique of European bishops and their liturgical advisers. Michael
Davies argued that the Church’s attempted headlong rush into
unity with other
Christian bodies would, in fact, have the adverse effect to that being
proclaimed and was leading swiftly to its decline.
