Milei, Mystical City of God & Infanticide

Argentine Disregards Francis


Argentine’s election results are in!

New President of Argentine, libertarian Javier Milei has called Francis an “imbecile,” a “Communist” and … [bad word] criticizing his concept of social justice. Milei’s running mate, Victoria Villarruel, is a devotee of the traditional Latin Mass with links to SSP.

Argentine is tired of the liberal agenda. They won 56% of the vote, .one of the largest margins of victory in Argentina’s recent political history, despite the fact that much of the hierarchy and clergy actively campaigned against them. Even Francis spoke against him before the elections, but to no avail.

This is Francis’ homeland. It says a lot that the people voted against his policies in a truly strong rebuke of “their” Argentine pope!



Hating One’s Body


Re: Tattoos Always Open the Door of the Soul to the Devil

That was one of those things I mentioned in the homily I gave -- how tattoos open the door.

I also worry that for some tattoos are a sign of anger with one's self or body.

I have seen beautiful women with large numbers of tattoos, and I wonder if they have been so abused by men treating them like trash instead of the beautiful creatures of God that they are, they have grown to hate themselves or their bodies.

Canada Expands Assisted Suicide to Children

Dear TIA,

Under the pretext that very ill children should stop suffering, a Canadian doctor is advocating for a clause to include children in the already approved assisted suicide laws. It is infanticide!

Provide Links to The Mystical City of God

Dear Tradition in Action representative,

Christ be with you.

I am interested in reading the work The Mystical City of God, yet, so far as my brief research has led me, the manner in which the work has been advocated has rather led me to be skeptical of the claims of its supporters rather than brought me to a greater comfort on the matter.

I note that the only source provided for the claims in the page To Read or Not to Read The Mystical City of God? is "The Age of Mary, Austin: The Dolph Briscoe Center for American History, 2016, Jan-Feb. 1958 issue.6.". It does not seem possible for me to readily obtain this work.

Would you please be able to provide me with more direct sources supporting the most important claims made within the aforementioned page? This would bring much joy.

Thank you.

     Yours in Christ,


TIA responds:

Dear J.K..

You may download for free the four volumes of The Mystical City of God on this website.

The Servite Brothers published The Age of Mary magazine, which can be ordered here.

You might also like to peruse this more recently published work: Maria of Agreda: Mystical Lady in Blue.

If you read Spanish there are many excellent sources, such as this PDF book here.

Thus you have the links for which you asked.

We hope them will of help to you.

Pokémon & My Son's Friends

Hi there TIA!

May God bless all of your efforts to preserve our lost cultural and Catholic traditions!

I have a question re: Pokemon. I have read your article on it, and wholeheartedly agree that it is not a good genre of media to expose children to.

However, I'm looking for some guidance as my son (8 years old) received a pack of Pokemon cards for his birthday from a neighborhood friend. I would have just thrown them away, but my very, very extroverted son is now being homeschooled, and does not have many friends his age around our home.

What's more, I hesitate and am not sure what to say to him, as he still misses public school and his friend bought him a deck of the cards so that they could play together.

That said, they often play on their bicycles, or jump on the trampoline or play as boys do and should, and the cards do not seem to be the focus of their friendship.

Do you have any guidance on what I can do and say to my son, who isn't too interested in Pokemon anyway, but whose friend is?

I care deeply for the good Catholic formation of my son, to become a future saint.

Thanks and God Bless!

Que Viva Cristo Rey!


TIA responds:

Hello J.B.,

Thank you for your kind words of support and encouragement. We commend you for your desire to form your son well.

Our advice to you is to first explain to your son why Pokémon is wrong. This is very important, because even if your son does not seem to show an interest now, his friend's continual encouragement could lead him to develop an attachment to Pokémon. Your son has reached the age of reason, therefore it is time for you to start preparing him to confront the evils of the world by explaining the errors of those around him.

Make it clear to your son that you can not approve of him playing with the Pokemon cards. While you do not have to use the words "transgender", "evolution" or "occult," you should explain in simple terms why monsters are not heroes and how they are devils. Using examples from the lives of the saints, such as the legend of St. George and the Dragon, you can show your son how a valiant Catholic warrior saint has conquered devilish monsters.

As a father, you should decide what games are suitable for your child and what are not. For this reason, we believe you should prevent your son from playing Pokemon.

If he understands that the game is contrary to his Catholic Faith, he will have an incentive to stay away from the game for a higher cause. He may even be able to explain to his friend why he can no longer play Pokémon.

Children are often able to speak about faith more easily than adults, and your son's influence can help his friend to be open to the Catholic faith. Because he is extroverted, he should not find it difficult to promote the Catholic Faith among his friends.

It is understandable that you are concerned about depriving your son of social interactions; however, a parent can never be too cautious when it comes to a child's playmates and games. Bad influence from friends can open a child's mind to impurity, skepticism and other evils. Therefore, continue to be vigilant in guarding your son from harmful friends and pastimes.
