– In this video, we tell a real-life story illustrating how Catholic Tradition is the only possible future for the Catholic Church. The story takes place in Pittsburgh so a brief history is given of the Catholic Church in the Steel City. Sadly, the diocese of Pittsburgh has seen many church closings and parish mergers in her recent years. One such church that was closed in 2004 was St. James Catholic Church in the West End.
The story is about how St. James was brought back to life in 2015. Its resurrection was only possible through Catholics who have remained faithful to the Church’s Tradition. The video also gives a brief description of the Priestly Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX) which has championed Catholic Tradition worldwide and especially in Pittsburgh through the restoration of St. James’s Church.
We hope to open the eyes of all Catholics to the reality of the situation in the Catholic Church and give them hope through this story. The video is especially intended for all Catholic individuals and families in Pittsburgh who want to remain faithful and perhaps are struggling to do so in their current parish. The video is also intended for those who have abandoned the Catholic Church, not knowing that Tradition is still alive in Pittsburgh or elsewhere in the world.
Above all, it is a call to arms for all Catholics, especially in Pittsburgh, to stop the revolution that is taking place in the Church’s liturgy, doctrine, morals, and cultural life. This alone is the goal of the SSPX and St. James’s Church. We hope that many more souls will be a part of it and join us in this work.
