Our Mission

The Committee for Mass Survival is an on-going (A) fact-finding,  (B) educational, and now (C) planning campaign, with  meetings at various locations in the southern half of Minnesota (excluding the metropolitan area).  The goal of the committee is to find effective means to sustain and promote the civilization which is known as the "West":  i.e., those areas where Latin-rite Catholicism was once foundational -- and must again be.

The Traditional Catholic Liturgical Year

Just as the Latin Tridentine Mass is filled with beauty, reverence and symbolism,, so too is the traditional Catholic Liturgical Year.  Each month and each day of the week is named for a special devotion.  We can join in the richness of our Catholic faith by following the days, weeks, seasons and feastdays of the traditional calendar in a natural rhythm that brings us ever closer to God and our Holy Mother Church. <More...>

 

CELEBRATING CATHOLIC FEASTDAYS IN THE HOME

One of the most enjoyable ways to teach our children the richness of the Catholic Faith and to keep them close to the Holy Mother Church is to fill their lives with the sacred and the beautiful.  When they are immersed in the reverence and silence of the Traditional Latin Mass, when they grow accustomed to the rhythm and rituals of following and celebrating the feast days, both at Church and at home, these traditions become such an integral part of them that the thought of not being Catholic will seem empty and meaningless. Traditions of not eating meat on Fridays, of eating animal cookies and hot <More...>

May 29 2012 - Modern Man In A Jewish Age: The Necessity of the Sacral Monarchy in Western Christian Societies. The isolation of the soul begins with the rise of Jewish hegemony over Western Civilization. Prior to and even during Europe’s “emancipation of the Jews” in the 18th Century, Christian Monarchy providing stability and contentment ruled the Continent. It was World War I that marked the turning point in modern history whose deadly effects on modern man can still be felt today. With World War I’s end the great transformation of Western Society from Sovereign Kings “for the people” to Democracy—ostensibly, “in the name of the people”—that began with the French Revolution was completed. Four Christian Monarchies were annihilated at World War I’s end: The Habsburgs of Austria; The Romanovs of Russia; The Hohenzollerns of Germany; and south of Europe, the Kingdom of Greece.“Democracy”—though touted as marking the “end of history” in which no further political structure is desired—can be defined as any country ruled by Jews. For in a “democracy”—manipulated by propaganda and campaign funding—Jewry, which pulls the levers of the main stream media and political favors, determines democracy’s final end product. More...

 

Mar 20 2013 - An exhaustive study by three congressional committees delivers startling news about the dire effects of Obamacare: President Barack Obama’s signature legislation could increase health insurance premiums by over 200 percent and render insurance coverage unaffordable for millions of Americans. Broadly, the new report declares that Obamacare “breaks its core promise” to make healthcare coverage affordable. The report, “The Price of Obamacare’s Broken Promises,” was prepared by the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, Majority Staff; Senate Committee on Finance, Minority Staff; and Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, Minority Staff.

"There should be a response to these challenges, and we certainly were pleasantly surprised and even stirred by the fact that thousands of Parisians protested against the legalization of same-sex marriages, against the elimination of the words 'father' and 'mother', and against possible adoption of orphaned children by these so-called families. We really did not expect this protest and see it as a manifestation of a deep religious feeling," he said. More...

 

Apr 29 2013 - Alternate Currencies Abound! You could only use Macon Money in Georgia at a participating business for a short time, and only 65,000 ‘bonds’ were awarded, but could this be a working example of replacing the funny money of the federal reserve with a barter-like system that promotes small business, big change and an evolution in the mindset of people from different countries and continents? You were required to purchase Macon Money at one of 49 different community events where the special bonds were made available, and the currency was made into a game, like real live monopoly mixed with a scavenger hunt, which aimed at building person-to-person connections through the community businesses which supported the game. You could only buy Macon Money for a certain time and it had to be spent within that time allotment, but the game proved that an alternative currency, if presented properly, can be a way to invigorate the economy at the community level. Was this the attempt of its founders, John L. and James More...

 

May 7 2013 - The U.S. is home to some of the greatest colleges and universities in the world. But with the student debt load at more than $1 trillion and youth unemployment elevated, when assessing the value of a college education, that’s only one part of the story. Former Secretary of Education William Bennett, author of Is College Worth It, sat down with The Daily Ticker on the sidelines of the Milken Institute's 2013 Global Conference to talk about whether college is worth it. “We have about 21 million people in higher education, and about half the people who start four year colleges don’t finish,” Bennett tells The Daily Ticker. “Those who do finish, who graduated in 2011 - half were either unemployed or radically underemployed and in debt.” More...

 

Apr 3 2012 - Army General Keith Alexander, the director of the NSA, is having a busy year — hopping around the country, cutting ribbons at secret bases and bringing to life the agency’s greatly expanded eavesdropping network. The climax, however, will be the opening next year of the NSA’s mammoth 1-million-square-foot, $2 billion Utah Data Center. The centerpiece in the agency’s decade-long building boom, it will be the “cloud” where the trillions of millions of intercepted phone calls, e-mails, and data trails will reside, to be scrutinized by distant analysts over highly encrypted fiber-optic links. Narus was formed in Israel in November 1997 by six Israelis with much of its money coming from Walden Israel, an Israeli venture capital company. Its founder and former chairman, Ori Cohen, once told Israel’s Fortune Magazine that his partners have done technology work for Israeli intelligence. And among the five founders was Stanislav Khirman, a husky, bearded Russian who had previously worked for Elta Systems, Inc. A di More...

 

May 27 2013 - "While we were thus plotting, thirty-six men arrived, who entered the house where we were drinking, and they were of such lofty stature that each of them was taller when upon his knees than I was when standing erect. Men that were so well built, it was a famous sight to see them. They were of the stature of giants in their great size and in the proportion of their bodies, which corresponded with their height. When the men entered, some of our fellows were so frightened that at the moment they thought they were done for. The warriors had bows and arrows and tremendous oar blades finished off like swords. When they saw our small stature, they began to converse with us to learn who we were and whence we came. We gave them soft words for the sake of amity and replied to them in sign language that we were men of peace and that we were out to see the world. In fact, we judged it wise to part from them without controversy, and so we went by the same trail by which we had come. They stuck with us all the way to the More...

 

May 27 2013 - In St. Peter's Square, the night before Pope Francis' election, the echo turned up most powerfully as a barefoot, sackcloth-wearing pilgrim named Massimo Coppo. A devotee of St. Francis of Assisi, Coppo, who lives in intentional poverty (sleeping under the porticoes of the basilica of Assisi), had come to the Vatican Square the night we met to pray for the cardinals in the conclave and for the church itself – that all would be "healed" from corruption and disunity. "I hope it will be a pope who is poor or who understands the poor," Coppo answered when I asked who he hoped the 266th pope would be. "Many people are poor and becoming poor.... A pope that speaks of eternity – of paradise – and even of hell in a world that doesn't like it." That makes the hair on the back of my neck stand on end. More...

 

Oct 20 2009 - Burke, formerly Bishop of La Crosse, Wisconsin, and Archbishop of St. Louis, Missouri, now the head of the Apostolic Signature of the Holy See, celebrated a solemn High Mass according to the old rite at 9:45 this morning (10/18/09) in the Chapel of the Most Holy Sacrament in St. Peter's Basilica. It was the first time a solemn High Mass according to the old rite has been celebrated in St. Peter's Basilica since 1969, 40 years ago. For more info click here (The Remnant website) More...

 

Sep 3 2010 - The Frankfurt School: Conspiracy to corrupt: Western civilization at the present day is passing through a crisis which is essentially different from anything that has been previously experienced. Other societies in the past have changed their social institutions or their religious beliefs under the influence of external forces or the slow development of internal growth. But none, like our own, has ever consciously faced the prospect of a fundamental alteration of the beliefs and institutions on which the whole fabric of social life rests ... Civilization is being uprooted from its foundations in nature and tradition and is being reconstituted in a new organisation which is as artificial and mechanical as a modern factory.

But two small shafts of light have been thrown onto his work for me just recently. The first, a short ar More...

May 27 2014 - The Harvard Project on the Soviet Social System Online provides access to digitized materials selected from the Harvard Project on the Soviet Social System (HPSSS). The digital collection consists chiefly of summary transcripts of 705 interviews conducted with refugees from the USSR during the early years of the Cold War. A unique source for the study of Soviet society between 1917 and the mid-1940s, the HPSSS includes vast amounts of one-of-a-kind data on political, economic, social and cultural conditions. The HPSSS’s value is compounded by the fact that it was compiled in English and organized according to a rigorous social science framework, making it accessible to a broad range of students and scholars.

Apr 1 1997 - Celibacy: Of Divine Institution If the Church has the right and power to abolish her own decrees, she cannot abolish those which have been indicated to her by Christ and His Apostles. This is what was affirmed by the Council of Carthage in 390 AD when, explaining the inviolability and the universality of the discipline decreed by the Nicean Council, the Fathers stated that celibacy is of Apostolic tradition. For instance, St. Epiphanius, Father of the Church, wrote, "It is the Apostles themselves who decreed this law." St. Jerome also testified: Priests and deacons must be either virgins or widowers before being ordained, or at least observe perpetual continence after their ordination....If married men find this difficult to endure, they should not turn against me, but rather against Holy Writ and the entire ecclesiastical order. Pope St. Innocent I (401-417 AD) wrote in the same vein: This is not a matter of imposing upon the clergy new and arbitrary obligations, but rather of reminding them of those which the tradition of the Apostles and the Fathers has transmitted to us. It cannot be more clearly stated. And there is a reason for the tradition. If in fact the foundation of clerical celibacy is doctrinal and not disciplinary, it is because the cleric in major orders, by virtue of his ordination, contracts a marriage with the Church, and he cannot be a bigamist. As our fathers in the Faith still explain it, these clerics are virgins in order to be true disciples and ministers of Christ, a virgin consecrated to His Spouse. St. Jerome, in his treatise, Adversus Jovinianum, bases clerical celibacy on the virginity of Christ. More...

Mar 2 2010 - "The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all; it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States, whatever the pretensions of politicians, pedagogues, and other such mountebanks, and that is its aim everywhere else…Their purpose, in brief, is to make docile and patriotic citizens, to pile up majorities, and to make John Doe and Richard Doe as nearly alike, in their everyday reactions and ways of thinking, as possible."

Apr 27 2010 - non-Licensed to Kill: Resident Barack Obama has ordered the murder of an American citizen, without trial, without due process, without the production of any evidence. All it takes to kill any American citizen in this way is Barack Obama's signature on a piece of paper, his arbitrary designation of the target as a "suspected terrorist." In precisely the same way -- precisely the same way -- Josef Stalin would place a mark by a name in a list of "suspected terrorists" or "counterrevolutionaries," and the bearer of that name would die. This is the system we have now, the same as the Soviets had then: a leader with the unchallengeable power to kill citizens without due process. More...

Never. Search the PG or the PL; search the early (ante-Nicene) council documents; regard the comments of Fathers of the Fourth Century, who attest to the longstanding practice by that time. What else can a logical man conclude save what this article articulates clearly?” More...

Physical explanations for these coincidences are considered on the assumption that the redshifts are cosmological in origin. It is found that the cosmological redshift hypothesis leads to a situation wherein the 57 groups of quasars a… More...
