The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter  “In 1988, Pope John Paul II canonically established the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter as a society of apostolic life and approved its constitutions.” The fraternity seeks “to reunite those who have been alienated by liturgical abuse and theological dissent by offering the sacred liturgy in all of its solemnity according to the Latin liturgical books of 1962, and by offering the faithful sound catechetical teaching within the living Tradition of the Church.”

CatholicTherapists.com  offers referrals “to professionally qualified psychotherapists who incorporate the truths and teachings of Roman Catholicism into their practice.” Of course, such persons seem to be few and far between. . . . Plus, a listing does not guarantee that a psychotherapist is competent, only that he or she gives intellectual assent to four doctrinal points. As I have seen with my own eyes, there are many persons in the Church who claim to be “devout Catholics” and who still don’t have a clue about the real psychological meaning of total self-sacrifice for the sake of mystic love.
