We need “prayer that storms the heavens for justice and mercy, prayer that cleanses our hearts and souls.”
Only in this way “will the culture of death that surrounds us today be replaced with a Culture of Life.”
~ United States Catholic Bishops Conference’s Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life Activities
Operation Storm Heaven led by his Eminence Cardinal Raymond Burke, and supported by Archbishop Cordileone, seeks to unite Catholics throughout America and the world in the largest Rosary Crusade in history. Every month Cardinal Burke has been celebrating a monthly Mass followed by a Rosary for this crusade. This month, Thomas McKenna from the sponsoring organization, Catholic Action for Faith and Family, asked Archbishop Cordileone to celebrate the Mass and Rosary while Cardinal Burke continues his recovery from COVID. Catholic Action is also recruiting Rosary Warriors to sign up to pray one Rosary on the 1st of every month in union with the Holy Mass and Rosary, usually celebrated by Cardinal Burke for Operation Storm Heaven. They have 100,000 so far and are aiming for a million. Put it on your monthly calendar. Sign up here: https://www.catholicaction.org/take_heaven_by_storm.
Our Lady of Fatima said to the three shepherd children: “Pray, pray much, and sacrifice for sinners, for many souls go to hell because there is no one to sacrifice and pray for them.” Let us respond to Our Blessed Mother’s request by Storming Heaven together, with prayer for the graces so greatly needed in our world!

Last Saturday (December 3, 2016), his Excellency, the Most Reverend Salvatore J. Cordileone, Archbishop of San Francisco conferred the sacrament of Confirmation to a group of mostly young Catholics from various parishes in the Archdiocese of San Francisco. The rite of Confirmation was done in the Extraordinary Form, which was followed by a Solemn Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament at Star of the Sea Church in San Francisco. To our knowledge, this marks the first time the Sacrament of Confirmation was done in the archdiocese using the traditional Roman Rite since the post-Conciliar liturgical reform of the 60’s. Liturgical assistance was provided by some seminarians from the nearby St. Patrick’s Seminary and University at Menlo Park. Here are a few photos of the Confirmation ceremony (click here to view the rest on our smugmug photo gallery).
Two years ago, on August 5, 2014, His Eminence, Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, had ordained Canons Francis Altiere, Benjamin Coggeshall, Joel Estrada, and Andrew Todd to the Sacred Priesthood for the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest at the St. Francis de Sales Oratory, St. Louis, MO. The video recording of this special event is so far the most watched video on our YouTube channel, with 16,800 views and counting! Kindly remember them in your prayers today!

It was a full day for us last Saturday (Jan. 23, 2016), as we started the day getting organized for the Walk For Life Info Faire at Civic Center Plaza. This is what we’ve been doing for the past couple of years before the Walk For Life Program, where we display and distribute materials, flyers, brochures on the Traditional Latin Mass, along with 50 other vendors (ranging from pro-life pregnancy clinics to Diocesan and religious communities). We also volunteered to take photos of our fellow vendors at the Info Faire. We started to pack our display when the program started, which included an impressive line up of speakers such as Obianuju Ekeocha of Culture of Life Africa, Mexican musical superstar and pro-life activist Emmanuel, and also David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress (well known for his undercover videos on Planned Parenthood’s selling of body parts of aborted babies). Inspite of the rainy weather at the onstart of the Walk (it eventually stopped), it didn’t prevent several thousands of pro-lifers from filling up the streets of downtown San Francisco! It was also edifying to see various Traditional Latin Mass communities (specially the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter and this year, the participation of more than 500 people from the Society of St. Pius X, where the Superior General, Bishop Bernard Fellay was present); walking side by side for the sanctity of life! After the Walk, we proceeded to the National Shrine of St. Francis of Assisi for a Solemn High Mass in the Extraordinary Form that was celebrated by Fr. Anthony M., OFM Conv., with assistance of Fr. Zachary Akers, FSSP, and Fr. Ashley Perry from St. Stephen’s. Music was provided by the St Ann Choir of Palo Alto and directed by Prof. William Mahrt. We will be uploading shortly the video of Fr. Anthony’s sermon.
In the meantime, below are some of the photos we took. Photos can be downloaded and shared, though we are only requesting photo credits to go to the Traditional Latin Mass Society of San Francisco. More photos can be viewed at our smugmug photo gallery. Click here for the photo albums of the Info Faire, Walk For Life Program, and Solemn High Mass. But be sure to mark your calendars for next year’s walk, which will take place on January 21, 2017!
