Persecution is a word that resonates with Catholic throughout the ages and around the world. No era has passed without first attacking the Catholic Church and her faithful, and yet the One, True Faith still stands and its dogmas and the Holy Sacrifice endure.
Due to the efforts of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, the traditional Mass survived the tumultuous post-conciliar years, and continues to be both our heritage and salvation. Today's current situation only further reveals both the strength of the perennial faith and the weakness of its new parody; as parish after parish denies the sacraments to their faithful, the traditional Mass continues to grow and thrive. It is precisely because of this success that the traditional Mass is now undergoing further sanctions.
At the 2021 Angelus Press Conference we discuss the impact of Traditionis Custodes, how we can protect our churches from the State, and how Catholics have survived persecutions throughout history. Fr. Davide Pagliarani, the superior general of the Society of Saint Pius X is this year's keynote speaker.
