Ending the Ecclesial Crisis: The Fatima Perspective

Bishop Athanasius Schneider: The Relationship Between Tradition and Liturgy.
Bishop Athanasius Schneider defines liturgy, Scripture, and Sacred Tradition and shows how they all are essentially dependent on one another. He teaches how to evaluate which magisterial teachings must be believed. The bishop uses quotations from Saint Augustine of Hippo, Saint Vincent of Lerins, and Saint Thomas Aquinas, along with the writings of Dom Prosper Gueranger, to provide guidance for anyone, priest or layperson, in the face of the Protestantized state of the non-traditional liturgy and related recent departures from the traditional teachings and practices of the Church. Bishop Schneider is the author of two books: Dominus Est - It is the Lord!, and Propter Sanctam Ecclesiam Suam (not yet available in English.) He is the General Secretary of the Bishops' Conference of Kazakhstan and Titular Bishop of Celerina.

Father Joseph Illo: Recovering the Ancient Liturgy in San Francisco
Father Joseph Illo gave a hope-filled talk on what can be accomplished with patience, catechesis, and hard work in “Recovering the Ancient Liturgy in San Francisco.” Father Joseph Illo graduated B.A. in philosophy from the Pontifical University of St. Thomas (the Angelicum) in Rome. He studied at St. Joseph’s Seminary, New York and was ordained in 1991 for the Diocese of Stockton. He has been pastor of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Modesto, chaplain at Thomas Aquinas College and is currently pastor of Star of the Sea parish in San Francisco.

Fr. Brian Harrison: The Coming Battle for Humanae Vitae
Father Brian Harrison, O.S. M.A., STD, gave a vitally important talk about “The Coming Battle for Humane Vitae” addressing the arguments that will be essential in defending the doctrine of the intrinsic evil of contraception against those within the Church poised to betray this infallible teaching. Father Harrison is a priest of the Oblates of Wisdom and an emeritus professor of Theology of the Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico. He is now scholar-in-residence at the Oblates’ Study Center and Chaplain of St. Mary of Victories Chapel in downtown St. Louis, Missouri.

Christopher A. Ferrara: Diabolical Disorientation in the Church: A Diagnosis
Christopher A. Ferrara concluded the day’s talks with an incisive analysis of the results of the abandonment of the use of reason by leaders in the Church. In his “Diagnosis of the Diabolical Disorientation in the Church” he suggests that the good news may be that the pontificate of Francis represents the final stage in this eclipse of reason. He ultimately proposes some remedies for faithful Catholics in this unprecedented crisis in the Church. Chris Ferrara is President and Chief Counsel for the American Catholic Lawyers Association. He is a prolific writer for Catholic magazines and periodicals; he is active in the pro-life movement; his latest book is The Great Facade: The Regime of Novelty in the Catholic Church from Vatican II to the Francis Revolution (Second Edition).

The Conference album also includes the Sunday homily by Bishop Schneider on “The Necessity and Value of Prayer in Our Lives,” and a lively and wide-ranging Question and Answer session that lasted almost two hours.
