  • May 2022 - Modicum...!

    Eternity alone measures time and gives it all its value. We must live the present moment in the light of eternal love, living joys and sorrows in the hope of this divine encounter marked from all eternity by divine Charity.

  • Feb 2022 - The Sign of the Beast

    Dear Friends and Benefactors, The following is a sermon pronounced by Rev. Fr. Gabriel Billecocq SSPX, on the last Sunday after Pentecost, November 21, 2021, in St. Nicolas-du-Chardonnet, our Society’s church in Paris. It is a very balanced text, a salutary warning to avoid the excesses to which we may incline in these difficult times and an even more salutary reminder that we must remain always focused on the unicum necessarium, the “only necessary thing”: God and His will.

  • Dec 2020 - "Come, O Emmanuel!"

    At Bethlehem over 2000 years ago, the world was in turmoil as Mary and Joseph silently prepared to receive their only son, Emmanuel. During Advent, the Church offers us the opportunity to contemplate the mysteries of the Holy Family in the silence of the cave at Bethlehem. Let it be a reminder for us to make time for silence during this season asking the Christ Child to take up his throne in the hearts of all men as we pray, “Come, O Radiant Dawn, Come O King of Nations, Come O Emmanuel.”
