Second Sunday in Advent
Comfort, give comfort to my people,
says your God.
Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to her
that her service is at an end,
her guilt is expiated;
indeed, she has received from the hand of the LORD
double for all her sins.
A voice cries out:
In the desert prepare the way of the LORD!
Make straight in the wasteland a highway for our God!
Every valley shall be filled in,
every mountain and hill shall be made low;
the rugged land shall be made a plain,
the rough country, a broad valley.
Then the glory of the LORD shall be revealed,
and all people shall see it together;
for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.
Go up on to a high mountain,
Zion, herald of glad tidings;
cry out at the top of your voice,
Jerusalem, herald of good news!
Fear not to cry out
and say to the cities of Judah:
Here is your God!
Here comes with power
the Lord GOD,
who rules by his strong arm;
here is his reward with him,
his recompense before him.
Like a shepherd he feeds his flock;
in his arms he gathers the lambs,
carrying them in his bosom,
and leading the ewes with care.

From the Desk of the Superior General,
The Most Reverend Sherman R. John Pius Mosley, D.D.
To Our Venerable Sons, Religious and All the Lay Faithful,
This Advent Message comes to encourage each of you as we prepare ourselves for the celebration of the birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ, on December 25, 2017. As your Bishop and Superior General of the Society of St. Alphonsus M. de Liguori, Traditional Catholics, We are deeply filled with joy knowing that each and everyone of you continue to work in and for the kingdom of God and for the good of our Society. We know the difficulty and the great demands that are put on each of you in your chapels, missions, oratories and parishes. We are aware of the lack of financial means to do God’s work. We are asked to do what we can with what we have and let us be grateful and patient as we ask God’s help and favor for His work. We believe God for the asking. His word has said, “..whatever we ask in His name He will grant it to us..” (I John 3:22) During this time, we must trust God and ask Him through the intercession of Our Lady of Perpetual Help and our Patron, St. Alphonsus Marie de Liguori, who in his own life and at the beginning of the founding and formation of the Redemptorists, The Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer, suffered a while. St. Alphonsus offered it all to the glory of God without complaint.
St. Paul tells us, “ For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. “ (Romans 8:18)
Remember, my dear children, “ God has a purpose for everything that we go through, a reason for our struggle and a reward for our faithfulness. So, don’t give up!” God’s plan is always the best. Sometimes, the process is painful and hard. But don’t forget, when God is silent, He is busy working things out for our good. Dearest children, God says to the prophet Isaiah, “ I will not cause pain and trials without allowing something new to be born says the Lord.” ( Isaiah 66:9) Do not grumble nor complain. God will enlarge our borders.
As you are aware, We will undergo on Our shoulder (Right Rotary Cuff), on
December 5, 2017. If We do not undergo the surgery, We will not be able to have use of the right arm. The surgery will require Us to be incapacitated for at least seven (7) weeks or more until We begin physical therapy. His Excellency,
The Most Reverend Layne Jackson, D.D., our District Superior for TheUnited States, will perform all ecclesiastical duties at the Mother Church –General House for the Society, until We return. His Excellency, The Most Reverend Hippolyte E. Paglan, D.D., our District Superior of All of Africa, will come to the United States on, January 31, 2018, for one month to assist Us in the sacerdotal duties and also, to assist the Superior General in making sure that the transition of the new seminarians is smooth and all are in place to prepare for their six-month Spiritual Formation. We ask that you keep Us in your prayers and Masses. Our Episcopal Secretary, Sr. Violet Lamb, will keep each of you informed as to Our progress.
Our dear sons and daughters, Advent marks a time of joyful waiting. The character of Advent is two-fold: it is a time to prepare for the solemnities of Christmas in which the arrival of Jesus on earth thousands of years ago is remembered and celebrated. But, it is also a time when we recall that which we express each week in the Nicene Creed at the Holy sacrifice of the Mass, that, “ He will come again in glory to judge both the living and the dead”. During this Advent season, “watch”, for Jesus and respond to His divine presence just like St. John the Baptist did when he leapt for joy in his mother, St. Elizabeth’s womb and like the shepherds in the field who believed and responded to the angel’s proclamation.
During this Advent, as believers, let us slow down, recollect our minds and hearts, examine our lives-especially the quality of our spirituality, that suffers neglect during our busy and punishing schedules throughout the year. Many of us have set our own schedules without prayer and consulting with our spiritual directors, and thus we are not successful in what we set out to do. The word of God says in Psalms 36:23, “with the Lord shall the steps of a man be directed, and he shall like well his way”. Often success becomes a goal in everything we do. Let us solely depend on God.
The Church invites us to celebrate the Season of Advent in three moments that are interconnected: The Past, the Present and the Future. We recall the past with gratitude when we re-live the joy of Christmas through the Sacred Liturgy, prayerful reading of God’s word, devotional prayers and chorals. Imagine the sense of wonder, beauty and awe when the Son of God, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity was born of the Virgin Mary and became flesh! Jesus became a little child Who needed care, love, hospitality. He is God; He is Emmanuel, the name which means, “God is with us”.
Advent prepares us for the fruitful celebration of this wonderful mystery of the Incarnation. (Christ being born of the Virgin Mary in her womb.) Advent also causes us to contemplate the Dogma of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary which we believe and will celebrate on, December 8, 2017. His Holiness of blessed memory, Pope Pius IX, proclaims, “ We declare, pronounce and define that the doctrine which holds that the Blessed Virgin Mary, at the first instant of her conception, by a singular privilege and grace of the Omnipotent God, in virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, the Savior of mankind, was preserved immaculate from the stain of original sin, has been revealed by God, and therefore, should firmly and constantly be believed by all the faithful”.
We also will celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe on, Tuesday, December 12, 2017, the only approved apparition where Our Lady appears pregnant with child. Mary, Our Mother, is the temple of God, Ark of the Covenant, who by God’s grace, turned around time by her “yes”. Salvation came to us because of her “yes”.
Advent challenges us to live the present with revered commitment. In the gospel of St. Mark 13:37, Jesus tells us, “ I say to all of you: Stay Awake!” As we remember the0 past and anticipate the future, we are challenged to stay awake and attentive to our divine encounters in the present, the ways God “arrives” in our everyday life. Let us, during this time stay awake, keeping vigil before Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament, like the Five Wise Virgins who kept their lamps full of oil for the Lord. (St. Matthew 25)
We know, Sons and Daughters, in the Third World ( Developing Countries)
the trials persecutions and financial difficulties you have because we have been there with you. We have so much and we are still ungrateful. In your native lands outside of the United States, it is difficult, however you are so strong. In the U.S., we are also beginning to see the same difficulty.
Finally, Advent invites us in the Nicene Creed, to look into the future with blessed hope. Our Catholic faith teaches us that the Lord “ will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and there shall be no end”. Advent, therefore, summons us to the Christian virtue of Hope. It is said that while there is life, there is hope. This has an even deeper meaning in reverse: while there is hope there is life. Hope is strength. Hope sheds light into despairing hearts. It inspires the will to live. It is the doctor’s most powerful ally. It is a shield against defeat and failure. It revives ideas and renews dreams. As long as there is hope, no situation is impossible. Advent summons us to wait in joyful hope for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. “He is Our Hope. Wait on the Lord. He is coming. Even so, Lord Jesus Come Quickly!”
With these sentiments, We wish all of you Our beloved Bishops, Priests, Clergy, Religious Sisters, Oblates, Seminarians and All Lay Faithful, a wonderful Season of Advent. Please pray for Us.
We bestow on all, Our Episcopal Blessings and We remain your shepherd.
We Love You!

What We Believe
The "Professio fidei Tridentina", also known as the "Creed of Pope Pius IV", is one of the four authoritative Creeds of the Catholic Church. It was issued on November 13, 1565 by Pope Pius IV in his bull "Iniunctum nobis" under the auspices of the Council of Trent (1545 - 1563). It was subsequently modified slightly after the First Vatican Council (1869 - 1870) to bring it inline with the dogmatic definitions of the Council. The major intent of the Creed was to clearly define the Catholic faith against Protestantism. At one time it was used by Theologians as an oath of loyalty to the Church and to reconcile converts to the Church, but it is rarely used these days. We do not accept the teachings and beliefs of the Old Roman Catholic Church thus we are not Old Catholic, we are The Traditional Roman Catholic Church, we believe and profess what Our Lord taught and the Apostles believed, based on the three pillars of the Church. Sacred Tradition, Sacred Scripture, and the Magisterium. Unlike many Traditionalist groups we do not engaged in debates, or arguments concerning Validity of Orders. Such arguments cause further wounds to the body of Christ and are not conducive to the practice of the true religion.
Thus this is what we believe and profess:
I, N, with a firm faith believe and profess each and everything which is contained in the Creed which the Holy Roman Church maketh use of. To wit:
I believe in one God, The Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the Only-begotten Son of God. Born of the Father before all ages. God of God, Light of Light, true God of true God. Begotten, not made, of one substance with the Father. By whom all things were made. Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven. And became incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary: and was made man. He was also crucified for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and was buried. And on the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and His kingdom will have no end. And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life, Who proceeds from the Father and the Son. Who together with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, and who spoke through the prophets. And one holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I await the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.
The Apostolic and Ecclesiastical traditions and all other observances and constitutions of that same Church I firmly admit to and embrace.
I also accept the Holy Scripture according to that sense which holy mother the Church hath held, and doth hold, and to whom it belongeth to judge the true sense and interpretations of the Scriptures. Neither will I ever take and interpret them otherwise than according to the unanimous consent of the Fathers.
I also profess that there are truly and properly Seven Sacraments of the New Law, instituted by Jesus Christ our Lord, and necessary for the salvation of mankind, though not all are necessary for everyone; to wit, Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Penance, Extreme Unction, Holy Orders, and Matrimony; and that they confer grace; and that of these, Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Orders cannot be repeated without sacrilege. I also receive and admit the accepted and approved ceremonies of the Catholic Church in the solemn administration of the aforesaid sacraments.
I embrace and accept each and everything which has been defined and declared in the holy Council of Trent concerning original sin and justification.
I profess, likewise, that in the Mass there is offered to God a true, proper, and propitiatory sacrifice for the living and the dead; and that in the most holy sacrament of the Eucharist there is truly, really, and substantially, the Body and Blood, together with the soul and divinity, of our Lord Jesus Christ; and that a conversion takes place of the whole substance of the bread into the Body, and of the whole substance of the wine into the Blood, which conversion the Catholic Church calls Transubstantiation. I also confess that under either species alone Christ is received whole and entire, and a true sacrament.
I steadfastly hold that there is a Purgatory, and that the souls therein detained are helped by the suffrages of the faithful. Likewise, that the saints, reigning together with Christ, are to be honored and invoked, and that they offer prayers to God for us, and that their relics are to be venerated. I most firmly assert that the images of Christ, of the Mother of God, ever virgin, and also of other Saints, ought to be kept and retained, and that due honor and veneration is to be given them.
I also affirm that the power of indulgences was left by Christ in the Church, and that the use of them is most wholesome to Christian people.
I acknowledge the Holy Catholic Apostolic Roman Church as the mother and teacher of all churches; and I promise true obedience to the Bishop of Rome, successor to St. Peter, Prince of the Apostles, and Vicar of Jesus Christ.
I likewise undoubtedly receive and profess all other things delivered, defined, and declared by the sacred Canons, and general Councils, and particularly by the holy Council of Trent, and by the ecumenical Council of the Vatican, particularly concerning the primacy of the Roman Pontiff and his infallible teaching. I condemn, reject, and anathematize all things contrary thereto, and all heresies which the Church hath condemned, rejected, and anathematized.
This true Catholic faith, outside of which no one can be saved, which I now freely profess and to which I truly adhere, I do so profess and swear to maintain inviolate and with firm constancy with the help of God until the last breath of life. And I shall strive, as far as possible, that this same faith shall be held, taught, and professed by all those over whom I have charge. I N. do so pledge, promise, and swear, so help me God and these Holy Gospels of God.
This is what believe and this is what we profess so help us God
A Quote from St. Athanasius
The Traditional Roman Catholic Church is a body of Christians committed to the Person of Jesus Christ and His teachings. We are a historical part of the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church.
We are a Traditional Catholic Church, defending the Sacred Traditions as passed on by the Apostles, the Church Fathers, and the Councils, prior to Vatican II.
We welcome you to become a part of our tradition. We are committed to loving parishes, missions, and chapels throughout the world as guided by the Holy Ghost. We are also committed to training and forming men to be sacred priests.
St. Athanasius says, "May God console you! ... What saddens you ... is the fact that others have occupied the churches by violence, while during this time you are on the outside. It is a fact that they have the premises – but you have the Apostolic Faith. They can occupy our churches, but they are outside the true Faith. You remain outside the places of worship, but the Faith dwells within you. Let us consider: what is more important, the place or the Faith? The true Faith, obviously. Who has lost and who has won in the struggle – the one who keeps the premises or the one who keeps the Faith? True, the premises are good when the Apostolic Faith is preached there; they are holy if everything takes place there in a holy way ...
"You are the ones who are happy; you who remain within the Church by your Faith, who hold firmly to the foundations of the Faith which has come down to you from Apostolic Tradition. And if an execrable jealousy has tried to shake it on a number of occasions, it has not succeeded. They are the ones who have broken away from it in the present crisis. No one, ever, will prevail against your Faith, beloved Brothers. And we believe that God will give us our churches back some day.
"Thus, the more violently they try to occupy the places of worship, the more they separate themselves from the Church. They claim that they represent the Church; but in reality, they are the ones who are expelling themselves from it and going astray. Even if Catholics faithful to Tradition are reduced to a handful, they are the ones who are the true Church of Jesus Christ."
(Letter of St. Athanasius to his Flock)
A Quote from St. Augustine
And on this point the reader may benefit from the judgment of Saint Augustine: “Often, too, divine providence permits even good men to be driven from the congregation of Christ by the turbulent seditions of carnal men. When for the sake of the peace of the Church they patiently endure that insult or injury, and attempt no novelties in the way of heresy or schism, they will teach men how God is to be served with a true disposition and with great and sincere charity. The intention of such men is to return when the tumult has subsided. But if that is not permitted because the storm continues or because a fiercer one might be stirred up by their return, they hold fast to their purpose to look to the good even of those responsible for the tumults and commotions that drove them out. They form no separate conventicles of their own, but defend to the death and assist by their testimony the faith which they know is preached in the Catholic Church. These the Father who seeth in secret crowns secretly. It appears that this is a rare kind of Christian, but examples are not lacking. Indeed, there are more than can be believed. So divine providence uses all kinds of men as examples for the oversight of souls and for the building up of his spiritual people.”
(De vera religione, in Augustine: Earlier Writings, translated by John H. S. Burleigh [Philadelphia: The Westminster Press, 1953], 231.)
