Præfektura apostolica Poli arcici- The Polar Prefecture

Norway was partly converted to Christianity already in the 11th century, although the heathen believes continued to stay strong in certain regions of the country. In the 17th Century the nation was turned over to protestantism by force after the so called "Reformation" and a Lutheran "State Church" was imposed on everybody. For more than 2 Centuries it was forbidden to practise Catholicism in the region. But in 1855 the See of Rome was able to start a new mission in Norway and the Polar Region; the "Præfektura apostolica Poli arcici." And even though most Catholics abandoned their Catholic Traditions in order to be accepted by the Second Vatican Council sect, there are still Catholics left.. People who wish to stay faithful to the Teachings of the ancient, never changing Catholic Church, with it's Papacy, Doctrines and Traditions. People who reject heresies like modernism, freemasonry, false ecumenism and "salvation" in foreign religions. Regular Catholics in other words.

Why I do not go to validly ordained heretics for Sacraments

There is a book published in 2008 called "Communicatio in Sacris", by William J. DeTucci (It can be purchased at, that I strongly recommend all Catholics to get. The book is quite unique of its kind, and is a great eye-opener to why it would be wrong to go to validly ordained heretics for confession or other Sacraments. DeTucci has gathered numerous quotes from Popes, Saints and Church Councils on the above-mentioned subject, and may best be summed up in the authors own, strong
"The CMRI, SSPX, SBC, Dimond Brothers (MHFM) and any other so-called Traditional Catholic Sects, are no different than the Heretical-Intercommunion of Vatican II (1962-1965). Since, these so-called Traditionalists lament the fact that Vatican II has permitted, allowed or encouraged "Intercommunion" with non-Catholics. Nevertheless, they are just as guilty (if not even more) since the Sacraments of the aforesaid so-called Traditionalists appear Valid, while the Vatican II Sect's Sacraments are dubious and highly questionable. The pseudo-Traditionalists throw boulders at the Vatican II Sect, yet they commit the most grievous of Sins and Heresies with their so-called Traditionalist-Ecumenism! Anathema to those that Intercommunicate with the Heterodox! Shame on the CMRI, SSPX, SBC, Dimond Brothers (MHFM) and any other that "appear" to profess Roman Catholicism, but are really sharers in Heretical-Communion among so-called Traditionalists!"

I would say that the most powerful quote of the entire book, is one by the Cardinal Saint Bonaventure, explaining how being validly ordained is not enough to actually give you absolution for your sins, when it is provided outside of the Church Unity:

"Once these conditions [intentions of orders] are present, the sacraments may be conferred by either the good or the wicked, the faithful or the heretical, within the Church or outside it: but within the Church, they are conferred both in fact and in effect, while outside it, although conferred in fact, they are not effective."
(Saint Bonaventure, The Breviloquium II, part VI, chapter 5, Article 1)

In this way you don't actually reap the fruits of the Sacrament, you are not absolved of your sins. Pope Leo XIII is quoted on the same subject-matter:

Letter Exima Nos laetitia, July 19, 1893, by Pope Leo XIII:
"From this is follows also that they cannot promise themselves any of the graces and fruits of the perpetual sacrifice and of the sacraments, which, although they are sacrilegiously administered, are nonetheless valid and serve in some measure that form and appearance of piety which St. Paul mentions (1:Cor. 13:3.) and which St. Augustine speaks of at greater length: 'The form of the branch,' says the latter with great precision, 'may still be visible, even apart from the vine, but the invisible life of the root can be preserved only in union with the stock. That is why the corporal sacraments, which some keep and use outside the unity of Christ, can preserve the appearance of piety. But the invisible and spiritual virtue of true piety cannot abide there any more than feeling can remain in an amputated member,' (Serm. LXXI, in Matt.,32)

The Papal Encyclical Graves Ac Diuturnae, March 23, 1875, Art 4, by Pope Pius IX, concerning the schismatic and heretical so called Old Catholics:
" They [the faithful] should totally shun their [the Old Catholics] religious celebrations, their buildings, and their chairs of pestilence which they have with impunity established to transmit the sacred teachings.
            They should shun their writings and all contact with them. They should not have any dealings or meetings with usurping priests and apostates from the faith who dare to exercise the duties of an ecclesiastical minister without possessing a legitimate mission or any jurisdiction."

In England, during the reign of Henry VIII, some Catholics would still go to the validly ordained priests and bishops who had fallen into the Anglican heresy. The Pope refused Catholics to join these in prayers and rites, not due to their effect in validity. On the contrary, the Pope refused as well because their rites were indeed, if not most, very valid but most illicit and unfruitful at the hands of heretics and schismatics. Furthermore, His Holiness, had such a horror of Heresy, that he even stated: "Even if my own father was a heretic, I would gather the wood to burn him!"
Quoting Pope Paul IV:
"We are forced to admonish and conjure you, that on no account you go to the churches of heretics, or hear their sermons, or join in their rites, lest he incure the wrath of God; for it is not lawful for you to do such things, without dishonoring God, and hurting your own souls." (Communicatio in Sacris, p.149)

In the writings of Saint Thomas Aquinas he quotes, "The Canon says (Dist. 32) 'But when the Arian bishop arrived, God's devoted servant rebuked him, as was right for him to do.' I answer that, As was said above, heretical, schismatical, excommunicate, or even sinful priests, although they have the power to consecrate the Eucharist, yet they do not make a proper use of it; on the contrary, they sin by using it. But whoever communicates with another who is in sin, becomes a sharer in his sin. Hence we read in John's Second Canonical Epistle (11)-(10) that 'He that saith unto him, God speed you, communicateth with his wicked works.'
            Consequently, it is not lawful to receive Communion from them, or to assist at their mass. Still, there is a difference among them above, because heretics, schismatics, and excommunicates, have been forbidden by the Church's sentence, to perform the Eucharistic rite. And therefore whoever hears their mass or receives the sacraments from them, commits sin. But not all who are sinners are debarred by the Church's sentence from using this power..."
Summa Theologica, Pt.III, Q.82, Art.9: "By refusing to hear the masses of such priests, or to receive Communion from them, we are not shunning God's sacraments; on the contrary, by so doing we are giving them honor..."

"Let a bishop, presbyter, or deacon, who has only prayed with heretics, be excommunicated: but if he has permitted them to perform any clerical office, let him be deposed." (Canon 44/or XLV; Canones Apostolorum, Mansi, Tom. I, col. 39).

The Fourth Council of Carthage (398 A.D.) presided over by St. Augustine:
"One must neither pray nor sing psalms with heretics, and whosoever shall communicate with those who are cut off from the communion of the Church, whether clergy or layman, let him be excommunicated." (Mansi, Tom. III, col. 957, Canons 72 and 73).

It is my hope that this small selection of quotes from "Communicatio in Sacris" will help Catholics to make the right decisions and carry their Crosses, even if they should feel like the "last man standing."
Remember, God can do anything. He is able to save you, and He is a Sovereign God, not depending upon anything or anyone to do whatever He pleases. Only God can save you. Have Faith in Him.

Great reading for the suffering!

This is a small section from a book I would like to promote, a book that made a vast impact on the spiritual life of Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus. The book is called "The end of the present world and the mysteries of the life to come" and was written in 1881 by Charles Marie Antoine Arminjon and translated from French into English in 2010 by tradibooks.

MYSTERY OF SUFFERING, part III, page 248: 

Let us, then, rejoice in our tribulations, 
and let us measure our future greatness 
by our present affliction and by the severity of our trial. 

In order to mitigate our ills and lessen our trials in this vale of sorrow and misery, the merciful Saviour desired to give us a sure pledge of His tenderness, and to offer us a guarantee of the heavenly bliss which He is preparing for us. This guarantee, this real testimony of the Beatific Vision, which made the souls of the saints sigh with joy, is not the brilliant successes of this world, or temporal glory or happiness, but trials and sufferings.
           The saints did not aspire to any other goods, and wanted no other wages for their labours. If they met one of their friends they would say: "Come, brother; our dwelling-place is in the hollow of  rocks, where we sleep on wet ground and where there is no bed, we feed on wild herbs, and for our refreshment we have but the water of the springs; around our dwellings we hear the roars of wild beasts, which are however, less fearsome than inhuman tyrants and barbarians, whose hatred and implacable ferocity pursue us unremittingly; but come without fear, there are indiscribable joys and consolations, for there is indescribable suffering."
           At first sight, language of this kind does violence to reason, and throws all our human judgements into confusion.
           Yet the saints, living on these lofty heights of faith, saw the events of the present world and the destinies of mankind from a different vantage and perspective. They judged the things of time by their relationship with those of eternity and they understood the profound meaning of one of the most sublime sayings of Scripture: Trial worketh hope. (Romans 5:3,4) Without trial there is no hope..

(If you only get the first page in the preview, you can google the first line: "IN order to mitigate our ills and lessen our trials in this vale of sorrows", then click on the first top-link and press "x" on the clear search to get all the pages.)

Because page 254 is missing in the preview, I have transcribed it for you below:
This pain, by crushing us in its grip, wrenches us away from love from present things; it is the sword which cuts through the clouds, and half-opens other prospects for us, by raising us up to higher hopes. In the fire of tribulation, all the wealth and all the goods for which we yearned so ardently appear as they really are, and become in our eyes mere smoke and empty shadows. Human life seems to us nothing more than a "moment" in the words of St. Paul. But that moment is a fruitful bud: watered by our tears, it will unfold into an immeasurable weight of glory. (2 Corinthians 4:17)
        Oh, let us, in short, cease to accuse the Creator of harshness and injustice. If God puts us to the test and removes what we hold dear, if He makes the bitter dregs of dissappointments and every heart-rending pain cascade down upon us, it is by no means in order to rob us, eo quo nolumus expoliari, the Apostle emphasizes, but in order the sooner and the more strikingly to reclothe us in immortality, as in an outer garment: sed supervestiri. (2 Corinthians 5:2)
          Let us take the case of a great artist who wants to make a statue. Beneath his hand he has a piece of coarse, shapeless marble; he takes up his chisel, strikes vigorously and mercilessly and chips away the fragments of stone until the idea which inspires him is reflected in the lines of the statue and pours out that grace and majesty which will be the admiration of the world.
          God does the same: holding in His paternal hand the chisel of mortification, He cuts into the quick of our affections. He lets Himself be moved neither by our groans nor by our cries. Mercilessly, He sunders those links, those friends, the health or reputation, which were as living parts of ourselves. In the fire of pain, He absorbs the attachments, the secret and invisible links which draw us into love of perishable , earthly things. He melts them down, violently eliminating all that remains in us of dross, human alloy and sensual affections, in order that our souls, thus spiritualized, may become like a well-prepared canvas, on which the rays of divine goodness will one day succeed in leaving their imprint; ut absorbeatur quod mortale est a vita - that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.

How to convert a pagan

As you may have noticed, paganism is on the rise in many places of the world, and the Nordic region is no exception. Channels like RedIceRadio are trying to discredit Christianity by using un-cronological wikipedia- and google searches to claim that paganism came before monotheism, when our Faith clearly teaches us that paganism is a degeneration that took place after the world separated from their Creator. When Christianity came to Scandinavia, it was only reclaiming what had always belonged to the One True Universal God. Modern paganism is still not like the religious believes of ancient times. One point I have to make, is that there are no ancient sources for Nordic pagan cults. The best information we can find is from the 10th Century, with claims of oral tradition from the 8th Century. The most detailed information we have of Nordic paganism is from Christian sources. A second point, is that modern pagans are not very religious. They believe that their pagan believes are merely an expression of the folk souls, what the people of the area have in common, which naturally evolves into customs and practices. But they don't really believe that Odin is a real god in the true sense of the word. So if they "sacrifice" beverages on old grave sites, it's just for cultural purposes. As a religious Catholic, on the other hand, I do believe that many of these pagan gods existed and communicated with people. They are real demons, and they still exist. I find this letter, written to Saint Boniface in the 8th Century A.D. very helpful, when communicating with pagans, and wanted to share it with anyone interested:
Bishop Daniel of Winchester advises Boniface on the method of conversion (723-724)
To the venerable and beloved prelate Boniface, Daniel, servant of the people of God.

I rejoice, beloved brother and fellow priest, that you are deserving of the highest prize of virtue. You have approached the hitherto stony and barren hearts of the pagans, trusting in the plentitude of your faith, and have labored untiringly with the plowshare of Gospel preaching, striving by your daily toil to change them into fertile fields. To you may well be applied the Gospel saying: ”The voice of one crying in the wilderness,” etc. Yet a part of the second prize shall be given, not unfittingly, to those who support so pious and useful a work with what help they can give and supplement the poverty of those laborers with means sufficient to carry on zealously the work of preaching which has already been begun and to raise up new sons to Christ.
And so I have with affectionate good will taken pains to suggest to Your Prudence a few things that may show you how, according to my ideas, you may most readily overcome the resistance of those uncivilized people. Do not begin by arguing with them about the origin of their gods, false as those are, but let them affirm that some of them were begotten by others through the intercourse of male with female, so that you may at least prove that gods and goddesses born after the manner of men are men and not gods and, since they did not exist before, must have had a beginning.
Then, when they have been compelled to learn that their gods had a beginning since some where begotten by others, they must be asked in the same way whether they believe that the world had a beginning or was always in existence without beginning. If it had a beginning, who created it? Certainly they can find no place where begotten gods could dwell before the universe was made. I mean by ”universe” not merely this visible earth and sky, but the whole vast extent of space, and this the heathen too can imagine in their thoughts. But if they argue that the world always existed without beginning, you should strive to refute this and to convince them by many documents and arguments. Ask your opponents who governed the world before the gods were born, who was the ruler? How could they bring under their dominion or subject to their law a universe that had always existed before them? And whence, or from whom or when, was the first god or goddess set up or begotten? Now, do they imagine that gods and goddesses still go on begetting others? Or, if they are no longer begetting, when or why did they cease from intercourse and births? And if they are still producing offspring, then the number of gods must already be infinite. Among so many and different gods, mortal men cannot know which is the most powerful, and one should be extremely careful not to offend that most powerful one.
Do they think the gods are to be worshiped for the sake of temporal and immediate good or for future eternal blessedness? If for temporal things, let them tell in what respect the heathen are better off than Christians. What gain do the heathen suppose accrues to their gods from their sacrifices, since the gods already possess everything? Or why do the gods leave it in the power of their subjects to say what kind of tribute shall be paid? If they are lacking in such things, why do they not themselves choose more valuable ones? If they have plenty, then there is no need to suppose that the gods can be pleased with such offerings of victims.
These and many similar things which it would take long to enumerate you ought to put before them, not offensively or so as to anger them, but calmly and with great moderation. At intervals you should compare their superstitions with our Christian doctrines, touching upon them from the flank, as it were, so that the pagans, thrown into confusion rather than angered, may be ashamed of their absurd ideas and may understand that their infamous ceremonies and fables are well known to us.
This point is also to be made: if the gods are all-powerful, beneficent, and just, they not only reward their worshipers but punish those who reject them. If, then, they do this in temporal matters, how is it that they spare us Christians who are turning almost the whole earth away from their worship and overthrowing their idols? And while these, that is, the Christians, possess lands rich in oil and wine and abounding in other resources, they have left to those, that is, the pagans, lands stiff with cold, where their gods, driven out of the world, are falsely supposed to rule. They are also frequently to be reminded of the supremacy of the Christian world, in comparison with which they themselves, very few in number, are still involved in their ancient errors.
If they boast that the rule of the gods over those peoples has been, as it were, lawful from the beginning, show them that the whole world was once given over to idol-worship, until by the grace of Christ and through the knowledge of one God, its Almighty Founder and Ruler, it was enlightened, brought to life, and reconciled to God. For what is the daily baptism of the children of believing Christians but purification of each one from the uncleanness and guilt in which the whole world was once involved?
I have been glad to call these matters to your attention, my brother, out of my affection for you, though I suffer from bodily infirmities so that I may well say with the Psalmist: ”I know, O Lord, that Thy judgements are right and that Thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me.” Wherefore I earnestly pray Your Reverence and all those who serve Christ in spirit to make supplication for me that the Lord who gave me to drink of the wine of remorse, may be swift in mercy, that He who was just in condemnation may graciously pardon, and by His mercy enable me to sing in gratitude the words of the Prophet: ”In the multitude of my thoughts within me Thy comforts delight my soul.”
I pray for your welfare in Christ, my very dear colleague, and beg you to bear me in mind.

A miraculous Salve Regina!

When Blessed Sadoc and his companions were martyred in1260 at the Dominican convent in Sandomir, Poland, a unique wonder occurred. Before the massacre, letters of gold appeared in the Divine Office book at the beginning of the martyrology passage that was to be read at the conclution of matins and lauds. The inexplicable entry was: "At Sandomir, the passion of 49 martyres."

Of course, "passion" signified suffering and death. The prior, Blessed Sadoc, counted his friars- 49 in all! He interpreted the miraculous appearance of these words as warning of death from the barbarous Tartars who were camped nearby. As the friars sang compline the following evening, a band of the Tartars, traitorously let in to the city by some Russians, cut 48 of them to peaces.

One friar fled to the belfry; there he heard a wonderful sound. The mangled bodies of his 48 brethren, though dead, were chanting the sweet melody of the Salve Regina. From the midst of the bloody corpses of those ever-devoted children of Mary, those preachers of her Holy Rosary, rose those dear words: "Hail Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope..." which are sung at eventide in monasteries and religious houses throughout the world.

Who can imagine the emotions of the 49th friar in the belfry as he heard the 48 dead martyrs chanting to their Blessed Mother! Already they were heroes and saints, welcomed into their reward in another and far more glorious world, even as their voices rose from bodies dead on the field of spiritual combat. Overwhelmed with that beauty, that heroism, and that message, the last friar regained his courage. He descended from the belfry and submitted to the swords of the barbarians; then there were 49 voices raised in singing the Salve Regina to the Mother of God. From this miraculous event began the Dominicans' custom of singing the Salve Regina at the deathbed of each of the Order's bembers.

(From the book "Saints who raised the dead, true stories of 400 resurrection miracles", by Father Albert J. Hebert)

Salve, Regina: English and Latin
This is one of four Marian antiphons, with following versicles and prayers, traditionally said or sung after night prayer, immediately before going to sleep. It is said from the end of Eastertide until the beginning of Advent. (That is, from the day after Pentecost, the seventh Sunday after Easter (or from the following Sunday, if Pentecost is celebrated with octave), through the Friday before the fourth Sunday before Christmas).

Hail, holy Queen
Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee to we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn, then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray. Almighty and everlasting God, Who by the working of the Holy Spirit didst prepare both body and soul of the glorious Virgin Mother, Mary, that she might deserve to be made a worthy dwelling for Thy Son, grant that we who rejoice in her memory, may, by her loving intercession, be delivered from present evils and from lasting death, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Salve, Regina
Salve, Regina, mater misericordiae;
vita, dulcedo et spes nostra, salve.
Ad te clamamus exsules filii Hevae.
Ad te suspiramus gementes et flentes
in hac lacrimarum valle.
Eia ergo, advocata nostra,
illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte.
Et Iesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui,
nobis post hoc exsilium ostende.
O clemens, o pia, o dulcis Virgo Maria.

V. Ora pro nobis, sancta Dei Genitrix.
R. Ut digni efficamur promissionibus Christi.

Oremus. Omnipotens sempiterne Deus, qui gloriosae Virginis Matris Mariae corpus et animam, ut dignum Filii tui habitaculum effici mereretur, Spiritu Sancto cooperante, praeparasti, da, ut cuius commemoratione laetamur; eius pia intercessione, ab instantibus malis et a morte perpetua liberemur. Per eundem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

There shall not be left here a stone upon a stone!

We can read in the Holy Scriptures how the Lord Jesus proclaimed the fate of the temple in Jerusalem:
And Jesus being come out of the temple went away. And his disciples came to shew him the buildings of the temple. And he answering, said to them: Do you see all these things? Amen, I say to you, there shall not be left here a stone upon a stone that shall not be thrown down. St Matthew Chap 24, 1-2

It was really interesting to read in a commentary on these verses, in Haydock Bible commentary from 1859, an historical account from 363 A.D., when Julian the Apostate together with the Jews tried to rebuild the temple, going against the words of Christ. A remarkable event took place:

Haydock Bible Commentary on St Matthew Chap 24, verse 2:
Julian the apostate, wishing to falsify the predictions of Daniel and of Jesus Christ, attempted to rebuild the temple. For this purpose, he assembled the chief among the Jews, and asking them why they neglected the prescribed sacrifices, was answered, that they could not offer any where else but in the temple of Jerusalem. Upon this he ordered them to repair to Jerusalem, to rebuild their temple, and restore their ancient worship, promising them his concurrence in carrying on the work. This filled the Jews with inexpressible joy. Hence flocking to Jerusalem, they began with scorn and triumph to insult over the Christians. Contributions came in from all parts. The Jewish women stripped themselves of their most costly ornaments. The emperor opened his treasures to furnish every thing necessary for the building. The most able workmen were convened from all parts; persons of the greatest distinction were appointed to direct the work; and the emperor's friend, Alipius, was set over the whole, with orders to carry on the work without ceasing, and to spare no expense. All materials were laid in to an immense quantity. The Jews of both sexes bore a share in the labour; the women helping to dig the ground, and carry away the rubbish in their aprons and gowns. It is even said that the Jews appointed some pick-axes, spades, and baskets, to be made of silver, for the honour of the work. Till this time the foundations and some ruins of the walls had remained, as appears from St. Cyril, in his catechism xv. n. 15, and Eusebius, Dem. Evang. lib. viii. p. 406. These ruins the Jews first demolished with their own hands, thus concurring to the accomplishment of our Saviour's prediction. They next began to dig a new foundation, in which many thousands were employed. But what they had thrown up in the day, was, by repeated earthquakes, the night following cast back again into the trench. When Alipius the next day was earnestly pressing on the work, with the assistance of the governor of the province, there issued, says Ammianus Marcellinus, such horrible balls of fire out of the earth near the foundations, as to render the place inaccessible from time to time to the scorched workmen. And the victorious element continuing in this manner obstinately bent, as it were, to drive them to a distance, Alipius, thought proper to abandon, though reluctantly, the enterprise. This great event happened in the beginning of the year 363, and with many very astonishing circumstances is recorded both by Jews and Christians. See the proofs and a much fuller account of this astonishing event, which all the ancient fathers describe as indubitable, in Alban Butler's life of St. Cyril of Jerusalem, March 18th. Thus they so completely destroyed whatever remained of the ancient temple, that there was not left one stone upon another; nor were they permitted by heaven even to begin the new one. (Maldonatus)

Catholic Christmas Song

So I made a Christmas song (click on the link)
It's called

God sent His Son down from Heaven

God sent His Son down from Heaven
His Messiah born in Bethlehem
as a light to the Jews and the nations
Came to shine in the valley of shadow of death

It was God
God Incarnated
God made man

God sent His Son down from Heaven

His Messiah born in Bethlehem
as a light to the Jews and the nations
Came to shine in the valley of shadow of death

He came down, walked around,
healed the sick, raised the dead, preached the Kingdom of God
He gave up everything
just to die for our sins, although He was a King

Your mercy endures, Your mercy endures
What a mess we confess in that valley of death
But You are the light that shines
and You light up the darkness, give sight to the blind

Praise You God, praise You God
for this hope to be saved, though we were born as slaves
Praise You God, praise You God
That You're calling on me, there's no reason to see but Your love
But Your love

Glory to God in the Highest

I was there, but You care
I was there in the valley of shadow of death
But You are the light that shines
and You light up the darkness, give sight to the blind

Praise You God, praise You God
for this hope to be saved, though I was born a slave
Praise You God, praise You God
And why You're calling on me, there's no reason to see but Your love
But Your love, but Your love

Glory to God in the highest

God sent His Son down from Heaven
His Messiah born in Bethlehem
as a light to the Jews and the nations
Came to shine in the valley of shadow of death
