On December 10, Fr. Trevor Burfitt, represented by Christopher Ferrara of the St. Thomas More Society, won a preliminary injunction prohibiting California Governor Newsom and others named in Father Trevor Burfitt’s lawsuit from enforcing COVID-19 related restrictions against his chapels in Kern, San Bernardino, San Diego and Los Angeles counties.
Today we’re speaking with Mr. Mike Banschbach, who runs a prison ministry out of Midland, Texas. Mike’s work, and the efforts of Fr. Katzaroff, as well as the faithful at St. Michael the Archangel chapel have provided some really awe-inspiring stories, as you’ll hear in the next thirty minutes or so. And far from being forgotten, these inmates are receiving the Faith and the Sacraments, not to mention love, and support – many for the first time in their lives.

A brief introduction outlining the response that the SSPX is taking with the Coronavirus, and what the priests are working on to assist the faithful who may not be able to make it to Mass
Then our interview with Mother Mary Joseph – the Franciscan Sisters of Christ the King are located in Kansas City, MO, and have as their apostolate the education of children. We spoke with Mother about their history, their founder, their mission, and then we asked her about her own experience as the superior of this convent.
This week, we spoke with Fr. Rutledge about the history of the Immaculata in St. Marys, which was destroyed by fire shortly after the SSPX acquired the property. Archbishop Lefebvre himself asked for it to be rebuilt, and some 40 years later, his vision seems to be coming to fruition!
We’ll discuss the history, the design, the challenges from a budgetary and organizational concern, and the timeline of this massive project.
“The Immaculata is the future home of the Catholic faithful of the Society of St. Pius in St. Mary’s, KS. After over 40 years since the original Immaculata burned down, this magnificent Romanesque church will stand as a symbol of the Faith, for Our Lady, and for the greater glory of God.”

Finally, we’ll talk about the traditions and practices of Ash Wednesday itself.
