Radical dissent is not new to the Catholic Church. In fact, it began with a rebellion before the world was created. It is no more radical now than in the beginning, but it has become more organized and more persistent. Pope Pius X recognized that fact and exposed Modernism and its array of errors in 1907 in the encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis. St. Pius X recognized that he could no longer remain silent about the Modernists and he endeavored  “… to show that their system does not consist in scattered and unconnected theories but in a perfectly organised body …”

In the latter part of the 20th Century, Modernism found a new method to promote its errors. More correctly, the Modernists were found by those who would manipulate them for their own political purposes and, in exchange, would provide the Modernist dissenters with the organizing tools needed to subvert faithful Catholics, their parishes, and their dioceses. It was and continues to be a witting and unholy alliance.

All of this brings us back to the beginning of radical dissent. In the words of one those who so adeptly manipulated the Modernist dissenters:

“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins—or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom—Lucifer.”

—Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals, A Practical Primer of Realistic Radicals, Random House, 1971

St. Peter Catholic Church, located in rural Rappahannock County, Virginia, is now under the influence of a Modernist dissenter. In just a few short months, the new pastor has set to work to “organize” a cadre of parishioners and outsiders with the purpose of transforming the parish to coincide with his Modernist view of the Church. We see new faces in the pews. These people come from the pastor’s last parish and they come from various organizations where he holds influence and authority.

This blog is about exposing the means by which the new pastor is attempting to transform the parish. This blog is also about how those faithful Catholics in St. Peter’s, who are in full assent with the teachings of the Church, can thwart this plan for transformation.

    I would like your commentary on the imposition of Holy Communion under both species. According to the diocese of Madison, WI this practice was granted under an insult that expired in 2005. See Father Zs blog:

    The Saturday Mass was a bit weird in that Fr Dudzinski had to modify things to accommodate a woman EMOC who walked up in the midst of the consecration.

    Rules for Radicals calls for upsetting the status quo…he certainly is doing that.


  2. If you are contemplating a formal canonical appeal (one which the diocese cannot ignore), you know where to find me.

    Does Father Grinnell lead “Tours” or “Pilgrimmages”?….

    I am leading a tour next summer to France (Cruising Burgundy&Provence to the Cote d’Azur) From July
    27-August 8, 2017. I have put the brochure in a manila folder on the table in the vestibule of the Church
    (left side). Most of the trip is on the Rhone River in southern France. We will start in Paris and end up in
    Nice. We have reserved the whole boat so the trip should be fun. Join us if you can!

    Gather the faithful, organize, and don’t give a dime. Tithe to a good parish or charity (or set it aside when you get a faithful priest), but give nothing. Get enough people together and do it long enough and maybe your Bishop will start to care. Or maybe he wanted to shut down your Parish anyhow. Seems like half our clergy are working for the other side. Wolves amongst us. Blessed Mother please pay for us.

    This website is very disturbing to both me and my husband. You’re commenting not on facts but all information taken out of context. How could you disrespect Father Tuck. He has shown only love and kindness to all in our community, regardless of what church they belong to. In all the years that I’ve been here, Father Tuck is the only priest who has reached out to everyone, including non-catholics, in a kind, friendly and giving way. Shame on all of you who write insults. We can assure you that other good catholics have started to attend St. Peter Church. Father Tuck is held by many in high esteem in our county. It’s time to stop grinding your ax. What is wrong with you!!
