Pope St Pius X
Restoring All Things in Christ
Our mission and ministry is founded on this holy Pope’s papal motto of “to restore all things in Christ”. St. Pius X, ascended to the Chair of Peter in August of 1903 and died in 1914. He is known for his unflinching opposition to Modernism, promoting orthodox teaching and traditional practices. He once referred to Modernism as the synthesis of all heresies.
We know from Scripture and approved apparitions of the Blessed Mother, (Fatima and others) that Mary will crush the head of the ancient serpent and in the end, her Immaculate Heart will triumph. In a most powerful way in this particular apparition, Mary echoes her place and influence when she appeared to a Spanish mystic, Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres, a Franciscan nun in Quito Ecuador at the end of the fifteenth century. Presenting herself in this apparition as, "Mary of the Buen Suceso of the Purification" (oka Our Lady of Good Success), Our Lady offered a number of prophecies speaking of her own Immaculate Conception,Papal Infallibility, and others, but directed the bulk of her thoughts at the situation in the world and the Church in the times that would occur after the middle of the 20th Century. One prophecy that stands out is this one:
"Pray constantly, implore tirelessly, and weep bitter tears in the seclusion of your
heart, beseeching the Eucharistic Heart of my most holy Son to take pity on His
ministers and to end as soon as possible these unhappy times by sending to His
Church the Prelate who shall restore the spirit of her priests."
All the prophecies of Our Lady came to a tragic culmination after the middle of the 20th century in the false implementation of the directives of the Second Vatican Council. These words of the Blessed Mother to Mother Mariana intend a complete Restoration affected by her intervention and this will bring about a new splendor in the Church. This glorious restoration must be affected by what Pope Benedict XVI called, "a reform of the Reform."
Pope Paul VI spoke these words one year before he died:
"The time has come, now, to definitely leave aside the disruptive ferments, equally
pernicious in one sense or the other, and to implement fully, according to its right
inspiring criteria, the reform approved by us in application of the decisions of the
When the implementation of the TRUE spirit of Vatican II is realized then all the scattered forces dividing and inflicting such wounds in the Church will be brought to an end, we will see this Restoration. In this Spirit, we cry out the Church’s motto for centuries: "As we worship, so we believe, so we live."
