District Superior's Letter: Sept 2009

September 08, 2009
On many occasions, in fact in all her apparitions, Our Lady requested that we add penance to our prayers. “Prayer and penance,” she admonished at Rue du Bac (1830), La Salette (1846), Lourdes (1858), Fatima (1917). One after the other, the same message was repeated as a preparation for the enormous Crisis that would shake the world and even the Church...

In a few weeks, following a hopefully restful summer break, the schools of the Society of St. Pius X across the United States will again open their doors to the many children of our faithful, ready to begin a new year of study. I would like, first of all, to thank all the benefactors who help to make this possible. To keep our schools open each year is a financial miracle...

One of the things that always strikes me most in visiting our priories, schools and chapels throughout the District, is the numerous young families and the many children—and I can see that there stands the future. It is mainly through educating the youth in a profoundly Catholic manner that we will best work towards restoring everything in Our Lord Jesus Christ...

January 01, 2009
With the month of January comes the start of a new calendar year and, of course, our best wishes. I would like to wish you a very holy new year.

Having returned from Lourdes a few weeks ago, I would like to assure you that the intentions of the priests and faithful of the District of the United States were remembered in my prayers to Our Lady at the grotto. It was a wonderful pilgrimage—the most important gathering of “traditional” Catholics ever brought together...
