The schismatics opened up a bookstore in the North End:
am forwarding this message I received. Obviously, the opening of a bookstore would not warrant a notice. HOWEVER, this one ties into the present crisis in the Catholic Church. While the officially sanctioned ("indult") Latin Mass, at Holy Trinity (German) Catholic Church, in the South End is under attack and threat of expulsion by the Archdiocese, other groups which advocate a Latin Mass that is NOT in communion with Rome are moving in to lure Catholics disaffected with the Chancery away. Remains to be seen what the RCAB will do to KEEP faithful Catholics in the fold.
I received this message from Denise Trias this morning regarding a new CMRI apostolate in the North End. For those who don't already know the CMRI (Congregatio Mariae Reginae Immaculatae) or the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen is a Sedevacantes religious order. Their Motherhouse is at Mount Saint Michael, Spokane, WA.

Given this continued challenge and presence, we must continue to lobby for a stronger Indult community. I suspect we may lose many people to the CMRI, if the RCAB continues its lack luster response to the Latin Mass community and proceeds with a least common denominator mentality. Perhaps the increased CMRI presence can be useful leverage in our continued "dialogue" with the Chancery. We may consider passing this information along to Frs. Deehan and Kickham, to give greater credibility to the pastoral issues previously raised.
In nomine sancto ejus,
FATIMA MARIAN CENTER GIFT & BOOK SHOP GRAND OPENING APRIL 1ST IN BOSTON'S HISTORIC NORTH END by Denise M. Trias
BOSTON, MA- Sheehan's Church Goods Co. Inc. closed it's doors on Chauncy Street in Boston recently and Catholics are now wondering where they can buy religious gifts and literature. This April, they can stop wondering as The Fatima Marian Center is opening it's doors in the Historic North End at 27 Thacher Street, Boston.
The gift shop will be selling Catholic books, CD's, videos, statues, holy cards, scapulars, rosaries, medals and more. Two Catholic Missionary Sisters from the west coast, Marian Sisters of Mary Immaculate Queen, will be staffing the bookstore.
Currently, the Sisters reside in East Boston. They promote the message of Our Lady of Fatima and the Block Rosary, teach Adult Catholic Doctrine Classes, visit seniors in the neighborhood and cheer up the locals by passing out rosaries and scapulars. If you are driving through East Boston, you might catch a glimpse of the Sisters in their royal blue habit walking down the sidewalk, praying their rosary and stopping when the need calls to give a word of cheer.
The Grand Opening of The Fatima Marian Center in the North End will be April 1st, 11a.m. to 6p.m. Stop in and browse, visit with the Sisters and enjoy a cup of coffee while choosing a suitable gift for any occassion. Invite your friends and neighbors. For more information call 1-617-561-4013.
