|QUICUMQUE VULT SALVUS ESSE, ANTE OMNIA OPUS EST, UT TENEAT CATHOLICAM FIDEM:
NISI QUISQUE INTEGRAM INVIOLATAMQUE SERVAVERIT, ABSQUE DUBIO IN AETERNEM PERIBIT--
Whoever wishes to be saved, needs above all to hold to the Catholic Faith; unless each one preserves this whole and inviolate, he will without a doubt perish in eternity - Athanasian Creed
| Welcome to tradition. In this site will be explainations of what it means to be Catholic.
I shall attempt to illustrate for you, dogmatic teachings of Holy Mother Church, the One True Faith.
I wish to point out a few things first off.
I am what some call a "Traditional Catholic", which means I preferr the Liturgy and sacraments using the Roman Missal of 1962.
I attend Mass at St. Michael's Roman Catholic Church in Scranton Pennsylvannia.
Our Holy Father, Pope John Paul II has made it clear that "respect everywhere must be shown" to those who have an attatchment to the Mass as said using the 1962 Missal.
I am not Schismatic. I do not endorse nor approve of anyone person or organization that places themselves above the Authority of the Roman Pontiff. Such groups (and they know who they are so there is no need to list them all here) cause division among our brethren and grieve the Holy Spirit.
I am a Roman Catholic, Loyal to Pope John Paul II and Obedient to Holy Mother Church in Rome.
Please keep in mind this is a work in progress. If you have anything to add to the site you may offer your suggestions via email or in my guest book.
