  • Act of Consecration to Saint Joseph

    Continued on p. 3

    Regina Coeli Report

    O Glorious Patriarch and Patron of the Catholic Church! O Virgin Spouse of God, and guardian and foster father of the Incarnate Word! In the presence of Jesus and Mary, I choose thee this day to be my guardian and father.

    O thou whom God has constituted Head of the Holy Family, accept me, I beseech thee, though utterly unwor-thy, to be a poor little servant in thy holy house. Present me to thy Immaculate Spouse, ask her also to accept me as a servant and to adopt me as a child. With her, teach me, thou who art a master of the interior life, how to converse constantly with Jesus and how to serve Him faithfully in all things to the end of my life.

    To thy custody was committed the Living Bread of Heaven, to be dispensed to thy starving brethren. O, with Mary help me to prepare the poor stable of my heart to re-ceive, worthily and often, the Bread of my salvation. Let me receive it from thy hands and from those of Mary, as often as I approach the Holy Table.

    O my tender and watchful father, I hereby consecrate myself to thee; and I firmly purpose and resolve never to leave thee, and never to say or do anything, nor to suffer anyone under my charge to say or do anything, against thy honor! O thou head of the house of God upon earth, in faith-ful imitation of Jesus and Mary, I place myself and all my concerns under thy care and protection. To thee, after Jesus and Mary, I consecrate my body and soul with all their facul-ties, my spiritual progress, my home, and all my affairs and undertakings. Forsake me not, but adopt me as a servant and a child of the Holy Family. Watch over me at all times, but especially in the last awful hour of my life on earth: then visit, console, and strengthen me with Jesus and Mary, that with them and thee I may sing the praises of the adorable Trinity for all eternity. Amen.

  • Letter from the District Superior

    Dear Faithful,

    On March 19, 2013, His Excellency Bishop Fellay will consecrate the Society of Saint Pius X to Saint Joseph, protector of the Holy

    Church. The General Chapter requested this act of devotion and dedication to Saint Joseph last June 2012.

    Saint Pius X, our patron saint, bore a special devotion to Saint Joseph, exalting him especially in the liturgy. He prescribed for

    instance special celebrations and commemorations of Saint Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Confessor, Patron of the

    Universal Church.

    Following its patron saint and its founder, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, the Society has always had a special devotion to Saint

    Joseph. A prayer to Saint Joseph is said daily by all members at the end of the community rosary. In his sermons the Archbishop often

    mentioned the name of Saint Joseph and gave him as an example to follow as well as a saint to pray to. It is not therefore surprising

    that today the Society wants to express that devotion through a consecration.

    For the Catholics of the United States, devotion to Saint Joseph takes on special importance as the first missionaries of North

    America brought with them a special devotion to Saint Joseph. Let me simply quote Fr. Francis L. Filas, a Jesuit who wrote in The Man

    Nearest to Christ: The Nature and Historic Development of Devotion to Saint Joseph:

    On the North American missions the name of Saint Joseph appeared frequently. In Canada he was regarded as patron of the land

    ever since it was called New France. In 1633, Saint John de Brebeuf founded the first mission among the Hurons and dedicated it to

    Saint Joseph. The first Algonquin mission was likewise placed under his care. Both the Recollect Fathers and the Jesuits often named

    islands and rivers in his honor. In 1675, Fr. Allouez called Lake Michigan Lake Saint Joseph. At Montreal the Sulpician Fathers followed

    in the steps of their founder, Fr. Olier, by inspiring the faithful to turn to the spouse of Mary in their need. The Ursulines and Grey Nuns

    always paid him exceptional veneration, for Mother Mary of the Incarnation (foundress of the Ursulines at Quebec) led the way in imi-

    tating Saint Teresa not only in her sublime contemplation and active zeal but also in her love for Marys spouse.

    In the United States one of the first churches in the section under British rule was old Saint Josephs in Philadelphia, founded in

    1738 by the Jesuit Josiah Greaton. The conversion of General Ethan Allens daughter during the late eighteenth century caused a sen-

    sation, especially when she became the first American nun. Frances Allen, when twelve years old, had beheld an unknown man who

    protected her. Not until thirteen years later did she recognize his identity as that of Saint Joseph, to whom she attributed her conver-

    sion and her vocation. At Emmitsburg, Maryland, Mother Elizabeth Seton placed her community and her loved ones under Josephs

    protection, calling her nuns the Sisters of Saint Joseph. Her motherhouse still bears his name. Another pioneer, Bishop Flaget of

    Bardstown, was wholeheartedly devoted to the guardian of the Holy Family and begged him to watch over his struggling diocese and

    its needs. Today a number of place names on our American maps tell their own story: San Jos, California; Saint Joseph, Missouri and

    Michigan; and Saint Joseph County, Indiana.

    Consequently, to revisit Saint Joseph and consecrate ourselves to him has a special importance for us. I hope many faithful will

    pray the preparatory novena (from March 10 to 18) and join themselves to the consecration ceremonies, which will take place in every

    chapel on March 19th or on the following Sunday.

    May this be an occasion to consecrate also your families to such a great saint, placing all of your worries, material and spiritual, in

    his hands and under his protection.

    May the Holy Family bless you and guard you always.

    Fr. Arnaud Rostand

    Prayer to Saint Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church

    Most powerful patriarch Saint Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church, which has always invoked thee in anxiety and trouble, from the exalted seat of thy glory cast a loving glance upon the whole Catholic world. Let thy fatherly heart be touched at the sight of the mystical spouse and the Vicar of Christ overwhelmed with sorrow and persecuted by powerful enemies. Oh! by the bitter anguish thou didst experience upon earth, dry the tears of the venerable Pontiff, defend him, liber-ate him, intercede for him with the Giver of peace and charity, that, all adversity being removed, and all error dissipated, the entire Church may serve God in perfect liberty: Ut destructis adversitatibus et erroribus universis Ecclesia secura Deo serviat libertate. Amen.

    Indulgence of 100 days, once a day.Leo XIII, March 4, 1882.

    Saint Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church

    The proclamation of the solemnity of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church was made during very troubled times, as noted in the decree itself.

    At least three petitions were submitted to Pope Pius IX requesting that Saint Joseph be proclaimed Patron of the Universal Church. The first was signed by 118 bishops. The second petition was signed by 43 superiors general of vari-ous religious orders. The third petition bore 255 signatures, 38 cardinals among them, including the future Pope Leo XIII.

    Pope Pius IX, in answer to the requests and prayers of all the prelates and faithful all over the world and of the peti-tion of the Vatican Ecumenical Synod, declared Saint Joseph Patron of the Church by the decree Quemadmodum Deus of the Sacred Congregation of Rites, published on December 8, 1870, the feast of the Immaculate Conception of his spouse.

    Quemadmodum Deus, Decree of Pius IX Declaring Saint Joseph Patron of the Universal Church

    As God appointed Joseph, son of the Patriarch Jacob, over all the land of Egypt to store up corn for the people, so, when the fullness of time was come, and He was about to send to earth His only-begotten Son, the Savior of the world, He chose another Joseph, of whom the first had been the type, and He made him Lord and Ruler of His household and possessions, the Guardian of His greatest treasures. And Joseph espoused the Immaculate Virgin Mary, of whom was born by the Holy Ghost, Jesus Christ our Lord, who deigned to be reputed before men as the Son of Joseph, and was subject to him. And Him whom so many kings and prophets

    desired to see, Joseph not only saw, but abode with, and embraced with paternal affection, and kissed, yea, and most sedulously nourished, even Him whom the faithful should receive as the Bread come down from Heaven, that they might obtain eternal life.

    On account of this sublime dignity which God conferred on His most faithful Servant, the Church has always most highly honoured and lauded the Most Blessed Joseph next after his spouse, the Virgin Mother of God, and has implored his intercession in all her great necessities. And now that in this most sorrowful time the Church herself is beset by enemies on every side and oppressed by heavy calami-ties, so that impious men imagine that the gates of hell are at length prevailing against her, the Venerable Prelates of the whole Catholic world have presented to the Sovereign Pontiff their own petitions and those of the faithful confided to their care, praying that he would vouchsafe to consti-tute Saint Joseph Patron of the Catholic Church. Moreover, when at the Sacred Ecumenical Council of the Vatican they renewed still more fervently this their petition and prayer, Our Most Holy Lord, Pius IX, Pope, moved thereto by recent deplorable events, was pleased to comply with the desires of the Prelates, and to commit to the most powerful patron-age of the Holy Patriarch Joseph both himself and all the faithful and solemnly declared him Patron of the Catholic Church, and commanded his festival, occurring on the 19th of March, to be celebrated as a double of the first class, but without an octave on the account of Lent.

    Further, he ordained that on this day, sacred to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God and Spouse of the Most Chaste Joseph, a declaration to that effect should by this present Decree of The Sacred Congregation of Rites be pub-lished. All things to the contrary notwithstanding.

    On the 8th of December 1870. CONSTANTINE, BISHOP OF OSTIA AND VELLETRI. CARDINAL PATRIZI, Prefect of the Sacred Congregation. D. Bartoloni, Secretary of the said Congregation.

    Pope Pius IX declared Saint

    Joseph the Patron of the

    Universal Church on Dec. 8, 1870.

    Regina Coeli Report March - April 2013

  • Fr. Jean Joseph Lataste, O.P., was the founder of the Dominican Sisters of Bethany. He devoted his life to God that Saint Joseph be proclaimed the Patron of the Universal Church.

    Saint Joseph, ProtectorDon Quiroga, a celebrated Spanish captain, was greatly

    devoted to Saint Joseph. During the frequent wars which he was obliged to sustain against the inhabitants of the Ladrone Islands, he had continual recourse to his protec-tion, and this protection proved an impenetrable shield against every danger to which he was then so much ex- posed. This he particularly experienced in one of the islands where he had frequently had to encounter these barbar-ians, whose forces were far superior to his own; and yet the victory was always on his side without the loss of even a single mannot one of his soldiers was even wounded. Don Quiroga attributed his good fortune entirely to Saint Josephs intercession; and indeed, it would have been impos-sible for him not to see with what solicitude his heavenly protector watched over the preservation of his little army.

    One day it was furiously attacked by a large body of na-tives from the interior of the islands who discharged upon them a volley of poisoned arrows. The inevitable destruction of the Spaniards would have been the consequence if Saint Joseph, whom Don Quiroga invoked, had not come miracu-lously to the rescue. The saint appeared in the air, and was seen by the Christian army to shiver in pieces the deadly weapons, which fell harmlessly to the feet of those whom they were designed to destroy. (History of Ladrone Islands)

    A Manual of Practical Devotion to Saint Joseph by Fr. Patrignani, S.J.

    Fr. Jean Joseph Lataste, O.P.Fr. Jean Joseph Lataste, christened Alcide Vital, was born

    in Cadillac-sur-Garonne, France, on September 5, 1832. He founded the Dominican Sisters of Bethany.

    It is not commonly known that Fr. Lataste offered his life to God that Saint Joseph be proclaimed the Patron of the Universal Church.

    Fr. De Boissieu says of Fr. Latastes devotion to Saint Joseph: Fr. Lataste had an ardent devotion to Saint Joseph. After having spoken of the spiritual life of this great reli-gious, let us see what was the extent of his fervent confi-dence in the Saint. As a priest, he noticed with surprise

    that the feast of March 19 did not have its proper Mass and that the Saints name was not found in the Canon. Later, on March 19, 1866, when he was laboring to found his religious community, he vowed to request these two concessions from the Holy Father if within two years he might see his one desire realized. The house at Frasne was opened on August 14 of the same year, and Fr. Lataste decided to fulfill his vow, adding a third request to the original two. This took place amid the most unusual circumstances. On August 3, 1868, Fr. Jandel, Master General of the Order, came to visit Frasne-le-Chateau. The House of Bethany, but two years in existence, contained twelve religious, including novices and professed.

    During the meal, at which Fr. Lataste was unable to as-sist because of extreme fatigue, there was talk of his sanc-tity and of the possibility of being cured. Fr. Lataste will die, interrupted the Master General. Yes, he is going to die, for see here what he has done. One day I received a letter from him addressed to the Holy Father. I presented it to His Holiness, who read it right there in my presence, exclaiming, Ah, this holy religious! He will be heard very soon. I wished to know what it was, and the Pope told me, This good religious, Fr. Lataste, makes the sacrifice of his life in order to have Saint Joseph declared Patron of the Church and his name placed in the Canon of the Mass. This is very difficult; but within a short time Saint Joseph will be made patron of the Church. Fr. Lataste will soon be heard. But he places the condition that Saint Joseph take upon himself the care of the foundation of the rehabilitees and supply for the lack of human support. We have received, continued the Pope, smil-ing, more than five hundred letters asking that we declare Saint Joseph protector of the Church; but Fr. Lataste is the only one who has offered his own life for the cause. So you see I had reason in saying, concluded Fr. Jandel, that Fr. Lataste is going to die.

    The petition was made in May 1868. The following year, on March 10, Fr. Lataste died, and Saint Joseph was pro-claimed Patron of the Universal Church on December 8, 1870.

  • Meet the Team

    What is your role at the District House?Im the District Accountant and my role is twofold.

    Firstly, I lead accounting operations at the District Office. This includes reporting, compiling and presenting finan-cials and recommendations at the Board of Directors and Administration meetings. Secondly, I implement account-ing policies and procedures in conformity with the U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. Im also re-sponsible for administering a consolidated financial pro-gram for the U.S. District, which involves maintaining all chapels on the same accounting program. Furthermore, I conduct annual audits to analyze financial data, correct mistakes and provide feedback to the treasurers. We use these consolidated data at year-end at the Board of Directors meetings in order to provide Menzingen, the international headquarters of the SSPX, with the informa-tion they need.

    What are some of the biggest needs of the District Office?

    One of the biggest needs of the District Office is fund-ing for future growth and maintaining enough revenue for current expenses. The District Office fully pays for all the curriculum and foundation development for the U.S. District schools; however, we recover only a small portion of the expenses through the Education Special Collection.

    What are some of the programs youve implemented at the District Office that youre excited about?

    One program the District Office implemented involved changing the accounting environment away from treasur-ers using various accounting software or spreadsheets to keep track of data, to consolidating all chapels to run under a single, enterprise-wide accounting system. Were now able to consolidate our information, analyze data in greater depth, and provide advice and help to chapels. For example, in auditing chapel financials, we can see trends by comparing financials between chapels that reveal which expenses are the highest and most frequent on a comparative basis. This information allows the District to evaluate and target high expenses and pursue purchase agreements with vendors to establish a strong discount rate.

    What is one goal for the District Office that youre excited about?

    One goal I am excited about is the Education Program. With a firm foundation in place through the curriculum, the District can expand on ways to help schools run more efficiently and effectively, as well as continue to hire qualified teachers who will help the schools continue to deliver quality education. As a father of an infant and hus-band to a teacher, I value the work that the District Office is doing to improve our schools, and I can already see the positive returns on our investment.

    Had you not become an accountant, what might you have become?

    Had I not become an accountant, I would have become an engineer. I chose accounting because I wanted a ca-reer in business.

    What is your favorite sport and why?Soccer is my favorite sport to play, but hockey is my

    favorite to watch. I enjoy soccer because thats what Ive excelled at the most.

  • Priest Ordained in Paris

    La Porte Latine has provided some photos from the priestly ordination of Fr. Bertrand Lundi, who had his training at Saint Thomas Aquinas Seminary in Winona, Minnesota.

    But rather than taking place here in the States, Fr. Lundis ordination, given by Bishop Bernard Fellay, was held at the Parisian church of Saint Nicolas du Chardonnet in his home country of France on January 27. A reminder of Fathers time spent in the United States was the presence of his seminary rector, Fr. Yves le Roux, who acts as one of the assistant deacons at the throne.

    Our congratulations to newly-ordained Fr. Lundi!

  • Book Review: ConfessionFr. Dominique Bourmaud

    This is the title of the latest baby from Angelus Press.

    The penitential Lenten season offers itself naturally to mak-

    ing good use of such a booklet, when we sinners need to get

    back to God. How many graces are being lost for underrat-

    ing and misusing this great sacrament of mercy? How much

    balm of consolation is granted to penitent souls thoroughly

    opened to Gods blessings?

    The Confession booklet is ideal for those wishing to

    make a general examination of their lives. It explains in

    depth the five steps for a proper confession: examination,

    contrition, confession, firm purpose of amendment and

    satisfaction.

    Perhaps the novelty here consists in what is called

    Examination of Conscience for Adults. It is a reprint from

    the Redemptorist method of monthly examination. To each

    of these twelve months is assigned a particular virtue, suc-

    cinctly explained in the context of Christian perfection. After

    this appetizer there comes the examination of conscience

    proper divided into two parts: the mortal and the venial sins

    opposed to the virtue. The exposition is completed by some

    helps and counsels which offer a guideline to decisions and

    resolutions. Among the topics, besides the theological vir-

    tues, a couple of months are dedicated to the love of neigh-

    bor; the others focus on justice, chastity, temperance, obedi-

    ence, meekness and humility.

    This step-by-step monthly study of ones conscience

    seems the perfect ladder of perfection for a soul desirous of

    knowing itself better in order to give itself wholly to God. By

    way of example, here is an excerpt from the month of March

    dedicated to the love of God.

    The love of God forbids, in general, the neglect of duties

    and obligations that spring from love, as well as the misuse or

    degrading of things given by God or dedicated to Him Have

    I failed to think of the passion and death of the Son of God in

    my own sufferings? Have I been unfaithful to little promises

    made to God? After a venial sin, have I made an act of love of

    God and determined to become perfect in my habit of love?

    In spite of the bitter cold, icy winds, and snow, the crowd for the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., on January 25th still numbered over 600,000. And among the crowds were Fr. Jordan Fahnestock and a merry group of youth from Saint Judes Church in Eddystone, Pennsylvania, along with Fr. Carl Sulzen from Ridgefield, Connecticut.

    As far as the eye could see, the streets were thronged with people who had all come for the same reason: to speak for those who do not have a voice.

Act of Consecration to Saint Joseph Continued on p. 3 Regina Coeli Report O Glorious Patriarch and Patron of the Catholic Church! O Virgin Spouse of God, and guardian and foster father of the Incarnate Word! In the presence of Jesus and Mary, I choose thee this day to be my guardian and father. O thou whom God has constituted Head of the Holy Family, accept me, I beseech thee, though utterly unwor- thy, to be a poor little servant in thy holy house. Present me to thy Immaculate Spouse, ask her also to accept me as a servant and to adopt me as a child. With her, teach me, thou who art a master of the interior life, how to converse constantly with Jesus and how to serve Him faithfully in all things to the end of my life. To thy custody was committed the Living Bread of Heaven, to be dispensed to thy starving brethren. O, with Mary help me to prepare the poor stable of my heart to re- ceive, worthily and often, the Bread of my salvation. Let me receive it from thy hands and from those of Mary, as often as I approach the Holy Table. O my tender and watchful father, I hereby consecrate myself to thee; and I firmly purpose and resolve never to leave thee, and never to say or do anything, nor to suffer anyone under my charge to say or do anything, against thy honor! O thou head of the house of God upon earth, in faith- ful imitation of Jesus and Mary, I place myself and all my concerns under thy care and protection. To thee, after Jesus and Mary, I consecrate my body and soul with all their facul- ties, my spiritual progress, my home, and all my affairs and undertakings. Forsake me not, but adopt me as a servant and a child of the Holy Family. Watch over me at all times, but especially in the last awful hour of my life on earth: then visit, console, and strengthen me with Jesus and Mary, that with them and thee I may sing the praises of the adorable Trinity for all eternity. Amen. Number 248 March - April 2013 Regina Coeli House, 11485 N. Farley Road, Platte City, MO 64079 | Tel: (816) 753-0073 | www.sspx.org
