Yes, we all support the protests in Cuba against Communism. We should do our best to support the opposition to Communism. But not to do what Biden plans, that is, to give money to keep the government on place.

Keep up the good work.

We appreciate what you do at TIA and look forward to the TIA Mail. The

How a Saint Approaches Holy Communion
“It is a question of uniting two extremes; God Who is everything and the creature who is nothing; God Who is light and the creature who is darkness; God Who is holiness and the creature who is sin.”
St. Gemma Galgani
(1878 – 1903) exhibited in her short life of only 25 years almost every possible mystical and charismatic gift.
She suffered the Passion of Christ from Thursday through Friday, received the stigmata, the crown of thorns, shoulder wound, bloody sweat, tears of blood, and levitated while in ecstasy.
She frequently and familiarly spoke to and saw Our Lord, the Blessed Virgin, her guardian angel and saints.
The following (
) is from the biography written by her spiritual Director, Father Germanus, who was a witness to many of these phenomena.

A Question about the
Dear Mr. Guimarães,
I am grateful to have discovered Tradition in Action last year, and I deeply respect the work that your organization has done to promote traditional Catholicism. However, I remain confused about TIA's position regarding the sinfulness of attending the
). As someone who grew up exclusively attending the "New Mass," I agree that it is far inferior to the Latin Mass and has yielded disastrous results.
Yet I still cannot understand why TIA maintains that it is sinful for one who knows of the crisis in the Church to attend to
If the Pope indeed promulgated a sinful liturgy, this would seem to violate the indefectibility of the Church, especially given that the faithful are required to attend Mass on Sundays. Can you please clarify your position on this topic?
The Editor responds:
The reasons to not attend the New Mass were presented in the articles you mentioned.
It makes perfect sense, since the Catholic Church has always forbidden her members to favor heresy. Now, the New Mass was made with the explicit intention to abolish the points in the Tridentine Mass that were
not accepted by Protestants
. So, if a Catholic who is fully aware of this bad intention persists in attending it, he is favoring heresy and incurs that condemnation.
Regarding your second question – if the Pope approves a sinful liturgy, this goes against the indefectibility of the Church – things are not as simple as you put it.
There are many things the Conciliar Popes did or do that are sinful, for example:
To affirm that eternal salvation can be achieved in any religion (
To praise heretics - Luther, Calvin, Melanckton (
To praise Buddhism (
To imply that Islam is a religion pleasing to God (
To tacitly or explicitly approve pre-marital sexual relations (
To tacitly or explicitly allow birth control for married couples (
To install divorce in the Catholic Church under the hypocritical disguise of multiplying the reasons for annulments (
), and so on.
So then, we have a
reality showing that the Conciliar Popes have promoted evil and sin to destroy the Church as she was known before Vatican II.
Now, on the other hand, we have the promise of Our Lord that the gates of Hell will not prevail against the Catholic Church, which we are demanded by Faith to believe.
For our human eyes, there is a flagrant contradiction between the two perspectives: one thing is the facts of reality, another is the truths of the Faith.
What is the solution? Is it to deny reality in order to hold to our Faith? No, we do not believe so. Between this reality conflicting with Faith, we choose Faith: The gates of Hell will not prevail. But we have to admit that, in these times, we have entered into the realm of mystery. Our human capacity of understanding cannot grasp how both things can coexist at the same time.
The conclusion is that we are in an epoch where we have to have Faith above and beyond the dark reality in the Church.
To find some solace in this conflict, we have the words of
Our Lady of La Salette
who warned us that Rome would become the
seat of the Antichrist.
These words bring us glimmers of an explanation, which is Apocalyptic and is still surrounded by mystery.
Here you have my perspective.
