JANUARY 2014—The Vatican Library is pictured on the front page. Like everything Catholic that has fallen into Novus Ordo hands—it would be changed. The library was closed to the public and rebuilt over 3 years time. Also on the front page, Ana Maggio reports on Rush Limbaugh’s assessment of Francis. The shocking comments have been buried by the media. (And he’s not the only one…) The papal encyclical that begins this month is on the Nullity of Anglican Orders by Pope Leo XIII (1896.) The editorial looks at the US Constitution, and recent concerns regarding it. Fr. Athanasius answers questions about Divine Law, legislation, canon lawyers, garage sale churches and more. See how the Catholic Church is at the root of foundations in our culture: your calendar. Griff Ruby asks is all censorship bad? David Goldstein’s articles are wealth of Catholic catechetics. This month, we publish his letter on the Spanish Inquisition. Fr. Oswalt writes about a Novus Ordo survey. Leonard Anaya gives us a fresh approach to New Year’s resolutions. Our Genesis-man, Hugh Miller wants you to make plans for a dinosaur-dig, and join him in Montana!  Fr. Brendan takes us inside one of the most extraordinary wars in history featuring heroic bravery and virtue nearly beyond this world’s understanding. Bp. Dupanloup, “The Spoiled Child” continues. And besides our usual classified, notices, and notable quotations, we also have another fascinating piece of Catholic history looking at the Holy Roman Emperor Franz II in the early 1800s.

THE FOURMARKS PRIMER-- replaced the February 2011 issue. Have you wanted an explanation for your friends and family?   This may be it. The Primer will serve as an introductory issue for all new subscribers. Besides giving some 4M  history and introducing some of our featured writers, we attempt to make clear the distinction between the two religions that claim the name “Catholic”: the traditional Catholic Church and the New Church. This special issue is a compilation of numerous 4M  articles that address the extreme differences between the two religions, their practices, beliefs, and rites. A news story sheds light on the council and how cardinals were manipulated. Articles include: excerpts from Pope Leo XIII’s encyclical on the nullity of Anglican Orders,  “Photos abound” discussing the fruits of the New Church,  “The Traditionalist Case” by Fr. Oswald Baker,  Quo Primum is included in full in Latin and English with commentary by Leonard J. Giblin III, MD, PhD;   “Compare old and new”  pages of a Catholic Missal and a Monthly Missalette, and a Lutheran Book of Worship all showing the crucial words of “consecration”;  “Communion in the hand—a sure sign of heresy” by John Lane;  “Tidbits from Vatican II History” by Frs. Francisco and Dominic Radecki, CMRI;  and “Official journal reveals Vatican II mysteries” by John S. Daly:  “Papal Coronation Oath,”  “Out with the old…Voiding papal traditions,”  and “The Self Induced Blindness Caused by the Apostasy of Religious Liberty” by Thomas A. Droleskey.  Cartoons and Forum letters are taken from years of back issues. Writers tell why they are Catholics. A glossary helps new readers understand the terms as used in our articles. The issue includes a book list, and is filled with quotes leading to the conclusion that to be Catholic, one must adhere to Tradition.

JANUARY  2011—Edmund Sheridan presents the year in review. Appropriately for these times, “Usury and Other Dishonest Profit” is the topic for the Voice of the Papacy. News stories include the death of Abbot Leonard Giardina, OSB, head and Founder of Christ the King Abbey. The story discusses unusual matters surrounding the Abbey just prior to the Abbot’s death. The January editorial–“If you’ll buy that…”—targets denial and the excuses so readily provided by those who want to keep their heads in the sand.   In his always out of the ordinary tidbits, Daniel Capodilupo distinguishes between false popes and anti-popes. In their chapter on the Council of Florence, the Radecki Fathers tell about corruption, crusades, councils, the height of the arts and more. Father Brendan Hughes continues his article on Trent. Want to grow in love of Our Lord? John Daly reviews several books that may best inspire that love in us. Michael Oswalt discusses the new morality of the Vatican II Church. John Gregory gives the Church’s history of St. Hilary, Doctor of the Universal Church. In her article, “The Ins and Outs of Fornication,” Clare Kolewski gives a straightforward, in-depth and very Catholic view of this important subject. “Galileo was wrong: The Church Was Right!” is the title of the First Annual Catholic Conference on Geocentricism. The Four Marks science writer, Hugh R. Miller reviews events of the conference. In his premier article for The Four Marks, Douglas Le Blanc writes about Father O’Reilly, an obscure priest, admired and respected in his day, who lived in the 1800s in Alabama. …and read more in our first issue of 2011.

June 2009: “It’s an open secret—The Vatican is betraying the underground Church in China,” by Thomas Chapman.  Chapman, himself, has traveled in secret to Beijing and met with members of the underground Church. St. Anthony of Padua is the featured saint of the month, and shows the basilica where he is buried, now a Conciliar church. Fr. Meramo is ousted from the SSPX and explains why he will not join the Vatican II Church. It must be borne in mind that he is at the crux of a personal conflict: He has not yet taken a sedevacantist stance, but condemns the Church of which Benedict is head. June’s editorial, “Our Gethsemane: In fear of our losses,” looks at death and our worst fears. The final segment of Tumultuous Times begins: “The radical changes of Vatican II have hurled many unsuspecting Catholics into a new church that has the semblance of Catholicism but lacks many of its essential elements.” John Lane’s book, The Church Crucified, continues with Unity. John Daly’s “The Impossible Crisis” discusses the traits of the true Church. Fr. Brendan Hughes continues his article on the necessarily infallible Church.

Product Info

 

Each download is marked according to its contents. A number of issues are grouped together.

 

It’s possible, when reading the older digital issues of The Four Marks, that your computer may not have a particular headline font and revert to your defaults. If that happens, the headline may not fit completely into the text box. This only affects  headlines. But, should you wish to, in such cases, you can change the default to another smaller font.
