Special Conference Announcement

Due to lamentable circumstances beyond his and our control, the traditional religious priest who was scheduled to give two talks at our upcoming conference, Father Sean Kopczynski, is unable to be present at the event.

Both the good Father Sean and the M.I.C.M. sponsors of the Conference are very sorry for this.

God is good, though, and we have filled his two slots with other speakers who are quite up to the task. In the spot given to Father Sean on Friday, we will have instead a presentation on “Life after Pope Benedict” by Mr. Charles Coulombe (who will speak once more on Saturday). In the Saturday spot vacated by Father Sean, we will have a special surprise, a presentation by a very scholarly traditional religious from Rome, who will speak on “Creation and the Divine Order of Things: the Truths to Combat the Errors of Our Age.”

Although Father Sean’s absence from our program causes us sadness, God has already brought good out of it.

Please see the revised schedule online.

    You’re giving two talks at what conference?!
    We can’t have that in the age of “The Tree of all Religions”.

    Paul: I had no clue what you were talking about till I saw this on Rorate: http://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/2014/10/a-new-symbol-in-episcopal-heraldry-tree.html

    A New Symbol in Catholic Heraldry: “The Tree of All Religions”

    Achbishop-elect Julian Leow Beng Kim, chosen by Pope Francis months ago, will be installed archbishop of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, tomorrow, October 6, 2014.

    He will certainly be a great Archbishop — well, at least assuredly for non-Catholics. He has just introduced a new symbol in ecclesiastical heraldry, the “Tree of All Religions” or “Coexist Tree”.

    Because, as Jesus said, “the gate is wide,” and “you can go to the Father not only through me, but through any other way as well. Just pick from the Tree of All Religions whatever faith rocks the Divine within you, dude.”

    [News item and images sent by local Catholic faithful, who appeal to our worldwide readership for prayers as well as action (the Archdiocesan office’s e-mail address is archbishop@archkl.org) to move the Archbishop’s heart to change this symbol that has scandalized them so deeply.]

    I think a better name would be “The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.”

    I should have provided the
    link. The point I was trying to make was that I find it hard to believe
    that Fr. Sean realized a week before he was to give two talks at a conference he had a scheduling conflict. Rather my
    suspicion is that political pressure was used to make this happen. (I.e. Some heretic
    complained to some other heretic in high places the result being what was
    reported.) SBC defends the salvation dogma of the Church; this is not well
    received in today’s ecumenical climate. The “Tree of all Religions” reference
    was simply to point out a recent example of the heresy of our age.
