Sharpen Your Swords on the Altar of Modernism

Modernist Jesuit calls for young Catholics to be banned from the Tridentine Mass

The former editor of the Jesuit America Magazine, Thomas J. Reese, S.J., who LifeSiteNews called a 'dissident' priest, has launched a wave of attacks against traditional Catholics and the Tridentine Mass. In a recent article for the ecumenical and heretical Religion News Service, Reese called for the "second phase" of the "revolutionary liturgical reforms" of the Second Vatican Council and Pope Paul VI's Novus Ordo Missae, and for the old liturgy to "disappear," asserting that children and young Catholics should be banned from the Holy Mass of the Ages.

Reese heretically claimed that the "liturgy becomes “boring and dies” if “out of touch with local culture." As the Faith that conquered the Roman and pagan world, the priest would have you believe, in error, that the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church needs to assimilate the world instead of lifting it up to Christ. St. Paul wrote that by Christ "the world is crucified to me, and I to the world." (Galatians 6:14)

Pope St. Pius X, the first Supreme Pontiff to be canonized since Pope St. Pius V, clearly identified in his encyclical Pascendi dominici gregis the extreme tactics of modernism as it infiltrated the Church and secular society. Coined as the 'synthesis of all heresies,' modernism is the heretical conformity to the world over the teachings of the Church as instituted by Christ and Divine Revelation. Pope St. Pius X illustrated this threat in Pascendi:

"Still it must be confessed that the number of the enemies of the Cross of Christ has in this days increased exceedingly, who are striving, by arts, entirely new and full of subtlety, to destroy the vital energy of the Church, and, if they can, to overthrow utterly Christ's kingdom itself."

Just as Annibale Bugnini, secretary of the Liturgical Commission that devised the Novus Ordo Missae, said that "we must strip from our Catholic prayers and from the Catholic liturgy everything which can be the shadow of a stumbling block for our separated brethren that is for the Protestants," Reese sacrilegiously suggests that the "fermentum," the particle of the Holy Eucharist that is dropped in the chalice after the consecration, veiled as the full Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ, should be sent to the “Ecumenical Patriarch or other Christian bishops,” during Holy Week in an attempt to normalize relations. To recklessly send Our Lord to heretics who reject Holy Mother Church and the Mystical Body of Christ is extremely sacrilegious. Without a doubt, ecumenism will be declared a heresy within the next two centuries.

The fact that these modernists refer to the Catholic liturgical reform of the 1960s as 'revolutionary' is concerning and appalling. From what were the Council Fathers revolting from or against? The answer is obvious, Divine Order.

Lucifer, and all of his actors through the ages, have had the same goal in mind, to subvert, pervert, and destroy the Divine Order. Revolutions are inherently disordered against law and peace, always aiming to reform through violence and upheaval. Following the footsteps of the 'Glorious Revolution' and the Protestant Reformation, Communistic tyranny thrusted revolution upon Europe under the new guise of liberty, conceiving the French Revolution and the Jacobin Reign of Terror where thousands of Catholics were executed by guillotine. As Russia would later spread her error across the world, France, the 'Eldest Daughter of the Church,' led a series of seven brutal wars to force her sins on Europe during the turn of the 19th century.

The seed of rebellion that was first planted by the devil in Judas and the disciples who rejected Jesus' teaching in Chapter 6 of St. John's Gospel, has now choked the world with its thorns and vines. As one analyses what society and the Church have become under the hegemony of modernism, it is sensible to contemplate the actions of the Prussian General Officers and Noble Guard, who, on the eve of approaching conflict with Napoleon in 1807, sharpened their swords on the steps of the French Embassy in Berlin.

This act of defiance in the face of tyranny, from officers who descended from the Catholic Teutonic Knights, is the zeal that good Catholic gentlemen must champion in the face of heresy. Catholic men must sharpen their swords on the altar of modernism.

Our mission, at the Sacred Military Order of Knights of the Republic and the Most Victorious Heart of Jesus, is to:

"defeat modernism, the synthesis of all heresies, and rebuild Christendom by defending the Faith, Holy Mother Church, the faithful, and reinforcing Christian virtue in the Republic." (Constitutional Charter & Code, 2019)

To engage modernism, faithful men must do so on three fields of battle: the domestic church (the family), the parish, and society at large. By this strategy, faithful fathers, as the priest, prophet, and king of the home, can root out those thorns and vines that threaten to choke the family; a handful of good families can support a priest to return supernatural faith and pull a parish from the brink; and multiple reverent and zealous parishes can revitalize a diocese and defend the Church. Together, on these fields of battle, modernism can be destroyed and Christendom rebuilt.

Christ, during His ministry on Earth, commanded the faithful to a charitable life of sacrifice and apostleship for the glory of the Father: "going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost." (Matthew 28:19). All heresies, by the grace of God and through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, will be and must be addressed, corrected, and destroyed.

By His commandment in the Gospel of Matthew, all Catholic men are knighted by His Divine Light to fight and extinguish darkness wherever it lies, for the Lord asserted, "but as for those my enemies, who would not have me reign over them, bring them hither, and kill them before me." (Luke 19:27)

Christ conquered all by His death on the Holy Cross, destroying any chance that the sins of the world, the flesh, or the devil had for eternal victory over His elected Saints. Joined to the Most Holy Sacrifice on Calvary and co-signed by the shedding of His Most Precious Blood, the martyrs of the past two thousand years conquered death and won their victorious crowns in Heaven. And, it was by the same Divine Grace that poured from His wounds, that Christendom was won by holy warriors, like Emperor Constantine and Blessed Emperor Charlemagne, who defended innocent Christians from persecution and secured peace and freedom for His flock.

Like St. Boniface chopping down Thor's Thunder Tree in Germany, Catholic gentlemen should not let these heresies stand. Modernists like the Jesuit Thomas Reese, in all due respect to his ordination, should be called for public correction, and if refused, silenced and cast out of the Church. There is no place for modernists in Holy Mother Church.

Men, we are at war with modernism. For over 500 years, Saracens murdered and molested Christians before Catholics launched the First Crusade in defense of vulnerable pilgrims and the faithful living in the Holy Land. Modernism, starting with protestantism in 1517 through the liberalism of the 19th century to today's communism, has claimed millions of Catholic lives and souls over the past 504 years.

Therein lies the greatest threat and enemy the Church has ever encountered. The time is nigh, grab your swords and sharpen them on the altar of modernism.

In Christ Crucified and the Most Victorious Heart of Jesus.
