Quote of the Day

"The Church will be punished because the majority of her members, high and low, will become so perverted. The Church will sink deeper and deeper until she will at last seem to be extinguished, and the succession of Peter and the other Apostles to have expired. But, after this, she will be victoriously exalted in the sight of all doubters."

(St. Nicholas of Flue, 15th century, cited in Catholic Prophecy, edited by Yves Dupont, p. 30)

We at Biblical Foundations International believe that we cannot possibly possess the spiritual discernment to adequately assess the crisis of our times unless we are obedient to the requests of Our Lady of Fatima, and of so many popes and doctors of the Church, to devoutly pray the Rosary -- at the very least, five mysteries of the Rosary daily, and all fifteen mysteries, if you can.

In addition to whatever other intentions you mention, please pray specifically that God will show you the truth regarding the full extent of the current apostasy, and that He will give you the grace to conform to that truth, whatever sacrifice is entailed.

NEW schedule for Skype class on "Liturgical Year" and Facebook Live class on "Christian Social Principles"

From now on the schedule for the weekly Skype class on Dom Guéranger's The Liturgical Year and the semiweekly (i.e., twice a week) Facebook Live class on Sr. Mary Consilia O'Brien's book Christian Social Principles will be as follows:

1) Every Wednesday and Saturday evening at 8:30 pm Eastern Time, please go to my "public figure" Facebook page to join us for the next Facebook Live broadcast as we go through Sr. Mary Consilia O'Brien's book Christian Social Principles.

If you have trouble finding my "public figure" page on, just type the following URL into your web browser:

Please note: earlier tomorrow I will first be re-doing the first lecture, which I recorded and posted last Sunday, November 27. When I watched it later I felt, because it was my first Facebook Live broadcast and I am somewhat of a perfectionist, that I didn’t do as good a job as I could have looking directly at the camera, keeping up with the comments people were texting to me live during the broadcast, etc.


This new version of Lecture #1 will be recorded and broadcast by me via Facebook Live this Saturday afternoon (December 3) at 5 pm Eastern Time on my Facebook Page, for any who may care to watch it live and interact with it. If that time is not convenient for you it will be immediately posted on the Facebook page, as will all the subsequent lectures, for you to watch at whatever time and on whatever day is most convenient for you. 


Then at 8:30 pm later that same evening I'll be broadcasting Lecture #2.


As I’ve previously mentioned both on this website ( and on my Facebook page, a couple of my online students have scanned the entire 640-page book written by Sr. O’Brien into a free PDF that you can download here:…/Christian%20Social%20Principles.pdf

or here:…/Christian%20Social%20Pr….


Also as previously stated, nicely-bound photocopies of the book are also available from me for $30 plus $7 Priority Mail shipping and handling. Contact me at or (570) 969-1724 if you wish one.

I strongly suggest you read each chapter of the book before each lecture, as it might take you a couple of passes through the material for you to fully take it all in.

2) Every Sunday evening at 8:30 pm Eastern Time a small group of us will be meeting by Skype to discuss the readings of the previous week in Dom Guéranger's The Liturgical Year.


This Sunday, December 4, will be our premiere session, in which we will discuss the readings for the First Sunday of Advent, the readings for the weekdays of the first week of Advent, and the readings for that day, the Second Sunday of Advent.


(The following Sunday, December 11, we’ll discuss the reading for the second week of Advent culminating in and including the readings for the Third Sunday of Advent, and so forth on each successive Sunday.)

Dom Guéranger's 15-volume masterpiece can be purchased from our online store at This justly-famous Catholic resource would make an unparalleled Christmas present for your entire family, but open it early so you can join us for our discussions of the readings during Advent!

Is Gerry Matatics a ''sedevacantist''?

Gerry Replies (slightly revised November 21, 2007):

I'm a Catholic, pure and simple (though hopefuly not too simple) -- and have been, ever since my conversion from Protestantism 21 years ago, by a miracle of God's grace. I love the Catholic Faith and wish only to profess it in all its purity and fullness. I love the Catholic Church and wish only and always to be a faithful member of Her, since She has repeatedly and solemnly defined as a dogma that there is no salvation outside of her.

Every Catholic -- however he or she might prefer to be positive in his presentation of the Faith -- must necessarily oppose and reject all those persons and things that are incompatible with Catholicism.

A Commentary on Rome's Lifting of the SSPX "Excommunications" of 1988

[Note from Gerry Matatics: I do not necessarily agree with every opinion of this guest writer (a friend of mine) -- I do not share, for example, his certitude on the validity of the SSPX bishops' consecration (expressed in his closing sentence), nor do I agree with him on other matters not touched upon in his essay -- but his essay essentially says what I've been saying when asked what I think of the recent  developments between Rome and the SSPX, and he has kindly granted permission for his essay to be reproduced here "as is." I shall have my own essay on the SSPX posted on my website later this month.]

Our Lady of Guadalupe (feast day December 12)

The Story

"And the land was polluted with blood," by idolaters who sacrificed their sons and daughters to devils (Psalm 105:38). Such was Mexico when Hernando Cortes arrived there in 1519. Some ten million native Nahuatl Indians formed a vast confederation of tribes at this time. These tribes were dominated by the powerful Aztecs who, for all their intelligence, industry, and valor, were equally barbaric, enslaved by an extravagant system of idolatry which placated its numerous gods with gruesome orgies of human sacrifice and cannibalism. For centuries torrents of blood literally flowed from the temple pyramids, with as many as 20,000 humans being sacrificed in one day.

"I congratulate you on the stand you took against the post Vatican II changes (especially the Mass) and applaud your willingness to accept the inevitable negative consequences of such a stand. God will surely reward your sacrifice abundantly ... Our [men's group] would love for you to come and give another talk at our church if your schedule permits. We are well aware of the financial cross you and your family suffer as a result of yor siding with Truth and are willing to cover whatever fee you deem necessary. Thank you and God bless you."

Pictures from Gerry's Recent Travels

Statue of Our Lady of La Salette, at the site of her (Church- approved) apparition on September 19, 1846, in the French Alps. On that occasion the Blessed Virgin announced, weeping, that "in the last days, Rome will lose the Faith and become the seat of the Antichrist... the Church will be in eclipse." Our apostolate is dedicated to Our Lady of La Salette and to spreading her much-opposed message.
