We at Biblical Foundations International believe that we cannot possibly possess the spiritual discernment to adequately assess the crisis of our times unless we are obedient to the requests of Our Lady of Fatima, and of so many popes and doctors of the Church, to devoutly pray the Rosary -- at the very least, five mysteries of the Rosary daily, and all fifteen mysteries, if you can.

In addition to whatever other intentions you mention, please pray specifically that God will show you the truth regarding the full extent of the current apostasy, and that He will give you the grace to conform to that truth, whatever sacrifice is entailed.

Gerry's "Whenever" Word Updated sporadically

Three new FREE online courses debut: Old Testament, New Testament, and Dogmatic Theology


Dear Friends:


I have a very exciting announcement!


I’m sure you’re already aware that I have been providing, for several weeks now, two free weekly classes on my public figure Facebook page.


(Because it’s a public page, you don’t need to have a Facebook account to view these classes. Simply turn the web browser on your computer, tablet, or smartphone to, type “Gerry Matatics” in the search field, and you’ll be taken to my page.)


On Monday evenings at 8:30 pm Eastern time I discuss the previous week’s readings in Dom Guéranger’s The Liturgical Year.


And on Wednesday evenings, also at 8:30 pm, I read through and discuss the 640-page book Christian Social Principles by Sister Mary Consilia O’Brien, OP, Ph.D.


8:30 pm Eastern seems to be the optimal time, for people on both east and west coasts as well as the time zones in between who wish to watch the broadcasts live and participate by sending in comments and questions during the broadcast.


But you’re not restricted to watching these broadcasts when they live-stream: after each live-streaming broadcast the recording is immediately posted on my Facebook page, enabling subsequent viewing at whatever time is most convenient for you, 24/7.


Starting tonight I’m adding three more weekly courses to the line-up. My wise wife, who knows me well and bravely suffers the consequences of my proclivity to overwork and overextend myself, made me promise not to launch all three new courses the same weekend, so I’ve distributed their debuts over the next three weekends.


Tonight (Friday, January 13) at (you guessed it) 8:30 pm I’m launching a much-needed course on Catholic Dogmatic Theology. Tonight’s premiere episode will begin with a bang, with a very shocking and controversial accusation.


A week from tomorrow — on Saturday, January 21 (also at 8:30 pm) — I kick off a course on the complete Old Testament, beginning with Genesis chapter 1.


And the following weekend, on Sunday, January 29, at 8:30 pm I inaugurate a very exciting course on the complete New Testament, beginning with the Gospel of Mark, chapter 1.


By January 29, therefore, my week’s lineup will look like this:


Sundays, 8:30 pm: New Testament

Mondays, 8:30 pm: The Liturgical Year

Wednesdays, 8:30 pm: Christian Social Principles

Fridays, 8:30 pm: Catholic Dogmatic Theology

Saturdays, 8:30: Old Testament

Gerry Replies

Is Gerry Matatics a ''sedevacantist''?

Gerry Replies (slightly revised November 21, 2007):

I'm a Catholic, pure and simple (though hopefuly not too simple) -- and have been, ever since my conversion from Protestantism 21 years ago, by a miracle of God's grace. I love the Catholic Faith and wish only to profess it in all its purity and fullness. I love the Catholic Church and wish only and always to be a faithful member of Her, since She has repeatedly and solemnly defined as a dogma that there is no salvation outside of her.

Every Catholic -- however he or she might prefer to be positive in his presentation of the Faith -- must necessarily oppose and reject all those persons and things that are incompatible with Catholicism.

A Commentary on Rome's Lifting of the SSPX "Excommunications" of 1988

[Note from Gerry Matatics: I do not necessarily agree with every opinion of this guest writer (a friend of mine) -- I do not share, for example, his certitude on the validity of the SSPX bishops' consecration (expressed in his closing sentence), nor do I agree with him on other matters not touched upon in his essay -- but his essay essentially says what I've been saying when asked what I think of the recent  developments between Rome and the SSPX, and he has kindly granted permission for his essay to be reproduced here "as is." I shall have my own essay on the SSPX posted on my website later this month.]

Our Lady of Guadalupe (feast day December 12)

The Story

"And the land was polluted with blood," by idolaters who sacrificed their sons and daughters to devils (Psalm 105:38). Such was Mexico when Hernando Cortes arrived there in 1519. Some ten million native Nahuatl Indians formed a vast confederation of tribes at this time. These tribes were dominated by the powerful Aztecs who, for all their intelligence, industry, and valor, were equally barbaric, enslaved by an extravagant system of idolatry which placated its numerous gods with gruesome orgies of human sacrifice and cannibalism. For centuries torrents of blood literally flowed from the temple pyramids, with as many as 20,000 humans being sacrificed in one day.

"I have read many of your articles, and as far as I am concerned, you are top shelf. You would be surprised at the hundreds of thousands that think the same as you. Please hold your head up high and stick to what you believe. Our Lord will not leave you an orphan, as He stated. You have many friends: just ask them."

Pictures from Gerry's Recent Travels

Statue of Our Lady of La Salette, at the site of her (Church- approved) apparition on September 19, 1846, in the French Alps. On that occasion the Blessed Virgin announced, weeping, that "in the last days, Rome will lose the Faith and become the seat of the Antichrist... the Church will be in eclipse." Our apostolate is dedicated to Our Lady of La Salette and to spreading her much-opposed message.
