5 Men Receive the Habit of the Brothers of the Society of St. Pius X in San Jose, CA

Earlier this morning five men died to the world and took on the habit of the Brothers of the Society of St. Pius X.  By this solemn ceremony, they entered their novitiate in the Brothers and took a new religious name.  The ceremony took place during a Solemn High Mass in honor of today's saint, St. Wenceslaus

The celebrant reflected on the Gospel of today's Mass as most appropriate for this ceremony as it is this Gospel which relates the following words of our Lord: "And he who does not take up his cross and follow Me, is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it."

These men serve as a stark contrast to the decadence and licentiousness of the Novus Ordo priests who have taken first-place on the news for their sexual crimes.  Indeed, the Lord is removing the weeds and replacing the harvest with the wheat of souls who are truly intent on following Him and dying to themselves.

Please join me in praying for these five men as they embark on a new life in religious life.  May they be guided by our Lady and may they increase daily in all the virtues necessary in order to save souls and give boundless honor to Almighty God.
