Most every visitor to this blog rightly mourns the loss of Catholic tradition and how several generations have been robbed of the sacred heritage that is rightly their own. Well, here’s a chance for us to do something concrete about it.
My friends Robert and Julie Siscoe’s daughter is a freshman at Fisher More College, the only accredited Traditional Catholic four year college in North America, and they can’t speak about it highly enough. (You likely recognize Robert’s name from his excellent articles published in the Remnant over the years.)
From the Fisher More website:
Campus life at the College is centered around the traditional Sacred Liturgy of the Roman Catholic Church, which features the Holy Sacrifice of the Traditional Latin Mass daily and includes daily communal prayer (Rosary, Divine Office, etc.) and frequent devotions such as Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament, novenas, honoring of feast days, etc.
The college is in real need of funding and every little but helps. Even if you can’t help financially, please spread the word and offer prayers that their goals will be met! Click the image below to learn more.
Thank you for posting this! Our oldest is a freshman in Fisher More’s online program and is planning to to go to Texas this fall for her sophomore year. My husband and I are very pleased so far; we hope to send the rest of our children there as well.
“Brick by brick”…
Here’s a thought. Wouldn’t it be “nice” if FMC and St. Mary’s (Kansas) became to the Church in the US what Oxford and Cambridge were to the Victorian UK civil service? The ’60 hippie freak that run the admin of the “church of nice” only have a few more years left until they depart to meet their Maker. And having a traditional cadre of proper Catholics to replace them might be just what the doctor ordered to restore the Bride of Christ back to her former glory, not to mention sanity.
St. John Fisher, ora pro nobis.
St. Thomas More, ora pro nobis.
I think I will save my money. Is a formal education in liberal arts and humanities really worth it in today’s world and economy? One can receive a comparable classical education much cheaper online. Nor, thanks to the Internet, must one travel to university libraries to read good books. For example, Dom Prosper Gueranger’s multi-volume series “The Liturgical Year” – the prime reference work on the Roman liturgy consulted by students and seminarians prior to Vatican II – is now available for free online:
Unless your child is called to priesthood or religious life, better as a Catholic parent to direct them toward a college or universal reputable in hard science, technology, engineering, medicine or math. Basically, where the well-paying jobs are.
Do you know who is implementing the N.O. missal in the “church of nice”, and I don’t mean Nice France? Here you go:
On a personal note, as a product of a Christian Brother’s education (High School), I feel particularly ashamed for this fellow Brother’s Boy.
God have mercy on his wretched soul.

Keep this newest parish in your prayers!
Our Lady of Victory, ora pro nobis.
I pray that Fisher More College will prosper. I think that they will not survive long, however, without pro bono teachers who work gratis without pay. Schools like Fisher More will always struggle because donors in general do not like to pay salaries. Huge donations are available but the big givers want to pay for building projects, not salaries. The start-up model for all schools like Fisher More requires a small but dedicated religious order of teaching brothers and/or sisters supplemented with retired teachers who will teach the kids for free. That is the way that Catholic schools began and that is really the only model that will work. My two cents.
The fightback begins:
“We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender…:
Pray for the LTM at Papal Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore.
Archbishop Lefebvre, ora pro nobis.
It’s early, and no coffee yet…:-)

p.s. God bless your enthusiasm, S.Armaticus.
enthusiasm – in – theos = having God within.
Amazing Update re Fisher More: The college’s _immediate_ financial need has now been miraculously met!!
