Satan's greatest enemy and arguably his only enemy is the Holy Catholic Church and Her lay faithful. When we reflect on the last year, perhaps we think of the scandal, the Pew Research Poll’s statistic suggesting that 70% of Catholics don’t believe in Jesus’ Real Presence in the Eucharist, the confusion from Rome in October 2019, the growing number of “nones” (those not affiliated with any religion), and perhaps now the Coronavirus Pandemic. The evil one would want us to spend much time thinking on these things, questioning these things, and making ill decisions on them. However, our Merciful God invites us to be consoled and grow closer to Him in each of these situations, in the end, God will reign.
In the midst of all that was occurring, the call from God that I received was to rise and defend Holy Mother Church! That has come to you now, in the form of this private association for the faithful. Since December we have brought to you numerous articles and reflections from young traditional Catholics. The words that I constantly hear from our readers is how their faith and spirit has been renewed after reading an article written by a young person on their love for tradition, but especially their love for our Catholic faith. We must continue to all work to set the hearts of both the young and the old on fire for Christ and His Catholic Church.
Our young minds have been filled with countless ideas of how to expand our mission of restoring the sacred. Our first and foremost goal is to bring Jesus Christ and the sacred traditions of His Catholic Church to as many people we can reach. We have currently begun to work on building a podcast, which we will be very excited to bring to you in the near future. Also, we continue to look for new authors to feature on our “guest contributors” tab. During this current time when many of us are home-bound, we have prepared to publish a constant flow of new content. We at this time ask for your support. First, and most importantly, we ask for your prayerful assistance as we continue to carry out the mission of restoring the sacred. Secondly, we have created a Patreon account to receive monetary support.
I recall these words from Mother Angelica, “Be courageous and brave! Fight for your mother, the Church! You must fight for your faith! You are on the winning side! Be Catholic, and be proud of it!” Consider financially supporting Called to Tradition so that we may continue to fight for Holy Mother Church and work to restore the sacred! For your monthly pledge of between $5 and $25, you can greatly assist and aid our mission. We too will reward you with our prayers, and also a gift of a handmade rosary by Seth Ball and a copy of Ven. Fulton Sheen’s Calvary and the Mass.
We truly are humbled and grateful for your prayerful and financial support. We currently are facing uncharted times, but we must ever stay close to Jesus’ Most Sacred Heart and Mary’s Immaculate Heart. We must stand and be called to tradition.
You are on the winning side - may God reward you!
Seth is a convert to the Church and lives in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
