TRADITIONIS CUSTODES: Who denies the Novus Ordo is valid?

Could you please elaborate on how the validity of one form of the Mass is somehow dependent upon the practice of another form of the Mass? Are there time or distance requirements here?

“Here’s the broken cross near the cassock, which signifies the stripping of the exterior signs of the Priesthood. When these things come to pass, this will be the sign that it is the time that charity will become cold.” -The Virgin of Revelation, to Bruno Cornacchiola, April 12, 1947

She was quite likely making reference to the words of Her Son, as recorded in Matthew 24:12.

Well, maybe you don't, but the CDC does. They've published comorbidity data from the beginning. Fewer than 6% (cited as "over 5%") of people in the US counted as "Covid-19" deaths had zero comorbidities, and can be said to have died from Covid-19.

Persecution of Mother Teresa Sisters Continues

Although also a disciple, I do not carry the equivalent ordination as did those to whom Jesus first distributed His body, hence I don't quite see the relevance of your citation.

Francis On Homosexuals: “The Lord Will Save Everyone” (Video)

While not being particularly fond of this fellow's statements and actions, I for one think many people are too quick to get their panties in a bunch over some of what he says.

Our Lord wants to and will save any Alternate Lifestyler who comes to the Sacrament of Penance with true contrition and firm purpose of amendment, and it just might be that that is what this fellow is, perhaps clumsily,…More

Devastating Fire: Our Lady Remains

I'm not quite sure I get your point. Are you implying that the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mediatrix of All Graces, should be ignored, as we traverse the narrow, difficult path to the Beatific Vision?

The Bible Verse That Could Destroy Protestantism. Protestants like to call themselves the "Bible" …

While debating "into the ground" sounds neither charitable nor fruitful, I admit I do take pleasure in reciting KJV passages while surreptitiously introducing Protestants to the true faith.
