Masthead

Welcome to TradCircle! This is a social networking site for people of all ages all over the world to meet each other and make friends who share the same traditional Catholic faith.  TradCircle was conceived of and founded by clergy in 2008 and is currently moderated by a team of laypeople in consultation with and under obedience to that clergy.  

TradCircle is dedicated to the Blessed Trinity and claims Our Lady of the Blessed Trinity as patroness of this site and its members. The Circle is the symbol of the Trinity, Almighty God who is one yet three, whose Three Divine Persons are never alone. They are "the three holiest persons in Heaven," as St. John of the Cross said. The purpose of this website is to encourage isolated Catholics not to be alone, but to associate virtually with other Catholics as well as to help them persevere and grow in the faith, the love of God, and eventually the easier to reach Heaven.  It has also helped some people to meet, court, and get married, though that is not the only purpose of this site.

While there are other Traditional Catholic social networks out there, we are the only one that requires a profile picture of yourself, a real first and last name, and a filled-out profile to ensure that those on here are actually interested in being part of a community, not in just "browsing."  We look forward to getting to know you!  Every few months we periodically go through our rolls to make sure that our members are actually active and participating. 

To be clear - Members are expected to be active within a moving 30-day window.  Activity is defined as posting pictures, posting in forums, etc.  Inactive members may be suspended, without warning, with reinstatement possible should they express a wish to be more active on this site.  Profiles may be provisionally approved but will be expected to confirm to all standards within 24 hours.  Membership here is not a right, but a privilege.

Our norms and expectations for modesty and photos on this site are outlined here.

Finally, while we think of ourselves simply as "Catholics" who are observing the moral and liturgical norms as they were set down prior to Vatican II, this website assumes the reality of sedevacantism: a conclusion that since Vatican II and the New "Mass" are harmful to the Catholic faith: they cannot proceed from the Catholic Church and hence cannot be accepted.  While we accept that some people who are on this forum may be on a journey towards sedevacantism, we will not engage in debates as to whether sedevacantism is an acceptable solution to the crisis.  This website accepts that reality and welcomes anyone of good will who is searching for answers.

Please pray three Hail Marys each day for the success of this site and the perseverance of all Catholics in this time of chastisement and betrayal.

CDC VAERS injury and death numbers are rising by the day. Where are the shepherds?

I am very concerned that I have only found one traditional bishop that is vocal against the current crime against humanity taking place with this diabolical "vaccine" killing and maiming thousands. The current data shows 17,128 deaths from the COVID-19 "vaccine" and the deaths are rising exponentially. This data only represents an estimated 1% of reports, meaning that the actual number is far, far higher. Where are the priests speaking against this? I am searching to no avail, the only ones I…

Podcasts

Hello Everyone-I am looking for some interesting new podcasts, Catholic or other. I listen to a lot of court podcasts because of my job, but would like some other options, because my job can weigh heavily. Are there Catholic Lifestyle podcasts? I already listen to a couple sermon podcasts but would like something a little lighter for when I am I am doing computer work. Those are kind of hard to listen to when you are doing something else and need to pay attention. Thanks!

Obtaining A Peaceful Simple Life (By Alan Scott)

For years now, I’ve been learning and struggling to live a more peaceful, simple life. Here is my goal:I want a life uncluttered by most of the unnecessary things that fill many people’s lives – with the hopes of filling my life with what really matters. A life that doesn’t contain constant busy-ness and rushing about, but instead is filled with intention, contemplation, creation and a connection with people I love, with time for wholesome activity. And most importantly, a life that has God at…

The Pre-1955 Holy Week

As our people know, we reject the use of the new Holy Week rites which were designed by the freemason and archmodernist Annibale Bugnini, and, sadly, approved for use by Pope Pius XII. We receive a good deal of heat for rejecting rites which were… Continue

The Church and Politics

In recent issues of the Seminary newsletter, I commented on the political situation in our country; in doing so I was careful to point out that these were my thoughts merely as a private American citizen. Although the Church favors the union of… Continue

Opinionism

The Vacancy of the Apostolic See, the non-papacy of Francis, and for that matter of Benedict XVI, John Paul II, John Paul I, Paul VI, and even of John XXIII, is an issue which has divided traditionalists perhaps more than any other over the past… Continue

Election Reflections

I think that we should rename our country “The United Banana Republics of America.” I say this because what happened on November 3rd was the erosion of confidence in the electoral process. In a country like the United States, in which officials are… Continue

Papa Pachamama’s Profession of the Modernist Heresy

“ALL THE Gods of the heathens are demons,” says Psalm 95 — but that didn’t stop Jorge Mario Bergoglio from sponsoring pagan idol worship of the Amazonian earth goddess, the Pachamama, in the Vatican gardens on October 4. Nor did it stop him, during… Continue

The Italian Edition of “Work of Human Hands”

Talking Sedevacantism with an SSPX Lay Kahuna

Father: Even though I’ve figured out that sedevacantism is the only possible theological explanation for Bergoglio and the whole Vatican II mess, I still have a lot of friends and acquaintances in SSPX circles. Word of my change of position has… Continue
