The Deserted Vineyard Letter

Ordering Information

 

Dear Friends and Benefactors:

Traditional Catholics have won some notable victories over the past few years.  These victories include Pope Benedict’s Motu Proprio enhancing the legal status of the Traditional Latin Mass, the lifting of the excommunications of the bishops of the Society of St. Pius X, and Rome’s correction of the words of consecration in the Mass from “for all” to “for many.”  Fr. Malachi Martin, an expert in the field of ancient languages, had argued strongly against the use of the words “for all” in the Mass.

Despite these victories, it would be an error to succumb to the temptation of false optimism.  At the diocesan and parish level, the modernists hold a gridlock on the governing machinery of the Church.  Recently, when Rome appointed the conservative priest, Fr. Gerhard Wagner as an auxiliary bishop of Linz, Austria, there was so much opposition that he was forced to withdraw his nomination.  As Fr. Malachi Martin stated in our latest book, The Deserted Vineyard, “They (the modernists) support each other and you can’t break that phalanx.”  Our victories don’t change the fact that the knowledge of the Faith, the state of the liturgy, the slovenliness of people’s dress, and the level of morality remain abysmal in most parishes.  The modernists are firmly in control of the governing machinery of the Church that the laity experiences on a day-to-day basis.

Despite the dire situation in the Church, it would be an error to succumb to feelings of discouragement.  In our arsenal, we have the weapon of prayer.  The effectiveness of this weapon has been demonstrated again by the success of two rosary crusades conducted by the Society of St. Pius X.  The rosary crusades for the ending of legal restrictions against the Traditional Latin Mass and the lifting of the excommunications from their four bishops achieved their objectives.  Currently, the Society of St. Pius X and other traditional organizations are conducting a rosary crusade for the intention that the Pope and the bishops consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  Triumph Communications supports this rosary crusade and urges the readers of this letter to pray the rosary every day for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  This consecration was requested by Our Lady and has not yet been done.

Triumph Communications has one point that it would like to make concerning this rosary crusade.  Although the requests made by the two previous rosary crusades were answered, the results included disappointments.  Although theoretically Rome has removed the restrictions on saying the Traditional Latin Mass, in practise bishops are still restricting its availability.

Although Rome lifted the excommunications from the four Society of St. Pius X bishops, much of the benefit of this action was undermined by the so-called Williamson affair.

One priest I know has suggested that these disappointments occurred because traditional Catholics weren’t fervent enough in their prayers.  Even among those of us who are traditional Catholics, there is often a tendency to be too worldly.  Sometimes our prayers are not answered in the way we would like because God is expecting something more from us.  Our Lady at Fatima called for prayer and penance.  Perhaps for our prayers to be more fruitful, in this age that values comfort, we need to get in the habit of making small sacrifices.  Perhaps we should turn off the TV set and do an hour of holy reading.  Perhaps we should give up some time surfing the Internet and do an extra litany or rosary.  Perhaps we should give up that dessert and offer up this sacrifice for our prayer intentions.  By making these small sacrifices, we strengthen ourselves, become less worldly, and increase the efficacy of our prayers.

Triumph Communications is determined to do what it can to defend and promote the traditional Catholic faith in these trying times.  We have just published the fourth book in our series of books by Malachi Martin.  Entitled The Deserted Vineyard, this book exposes the betrayal of modern churchmen of the Catholic religion and provides fascinating insights on the subject of Catholic devotion.  In addition to the crisis in the Church, we are faced with a grim political situation, with the Obama administration and other governments throughout the world  implementing anti-family policies.  In response, we are making available a series of CD recordings by William Gairdner on political topics.  William Gairdner is a former Olympic athlete, educator, and author of the book, The War Against the Family.  William Gairdner’s pro-family agenda is an antidote to the failed policies of the current political establishment.

We would like to announce our new address: Triumph Communications, P.O. Box 126, Wellesley, ON N0B 2T0 Canada.  Our new telephone number is (519) 656-9679.  Our website address remains the same at www.triumphcommunications.net .

We urge you to support our work of publishing traditional Catholic books, CDs, and cassette tapes.  We invite you to send us any names and addresses of anyone that you think would be interested in our work and ask you to pray for the success of our endeavors.  May it all be for the greater honor and glory of God.

God Bless,

Bernard Janzen
