Catholic Family News Article


Article from the Catholic Family News

Father Gregory Hesse, RIP



Catholic Family News has just received sad news that Father Gregory Hesse died last night, January 25. All we know so far is that his death was brought on by complications due to diabetes, and he received last rites from a priest of the Society of St. Pius X. We will update this page when we know more.
Father Gregory Hesse, S.T.D., J.C.D. was ordained in 1981 in St. Peter's Basilica. He held doctorates in both Thomistic theology and Canon Law. From 1986-88 he served as Secretery to Cardinal Stickler at the Vatican. Since 1991, he worked in Austria, Germany and the United States giving lectures and producing theological articles that appeared in Catholic Family News, The Fatima Crusader and other journals.
He was a contributor to the book The Devil's Final Battle and appeared in the 2004 Fatima documentary Heaven's Key to Peace. An outspoken critic of Vatican II and the post-conciliar revolution, Father Hesse is remembered as a strong voice for the Latin Tridentine Mass and the Traditional Catholic Faith.
Please remember to pray for the soul of Father Hesse in your Masses, rosaries and prayers. Requiescant in pace

I have said a prayer for him. Please also pray for a friend of my family, Kathleen, who recently died.

I've been trying to get an answer to this question:

Was Father Hesse conditionally ordained in the traditional rite?

This is very important. Thannnnnks

I researched this one and I got an answer from Anthony Malleus at Catholicapologetics.info
He states that Fr.Hesse was not conditionally ordained. Fr. Hesse has a cassete tape explaining why he feels his ordination is valid. If you are interested the site is http://www.maeta.com/
I hope this is helpful to you

Ok. Thanks. I had heard he was not ordained in the traditional rite but wanted to make sure.

I am aware of Father Trinchard's apostolate and have read some of his pamphlets. I do not agree with his conclusions since one either has to take the novus ordo religion as a whole (ie. vatican ii, new mass, etc) or not at all.

There is much evidence that the novus ordo rite of ordination parallels the anglican rite of ordination which has been declared invalid by Pope Leo XIII.

This does not bode well for Mr. Hesse's soul.

God bless,
