   Gary Morella weighs in with what Catholics need to believe and act on considering how fast America is losing her soul. Things are happening so fast and furious that legislation, such that will bankrupt future generations, has been passed by those who should be representing the people but definitely do not for they did not even read and examine the dangerous and immoral 790 billion dollar porculus spendulus bill that will only stimulate satan and his legions. Yet the Demoncrats and three RINOs brazenly put their approval on what for many will be their death warrant. God will not forget nor shall we for unjust laws are no laws as His Eminence St. Robert Bellarmine asserted during the time of Trent. So also today. If one is Catholic, then one must act as a Catholic in every way. Not to do so is to be in satan's camp. Gary explains in his no-nonsense piece de resistance Resist Now or Rue it!


The time has arrived to present closing arguments in the case against Feeneyism and the Treatise and Griff is prepared with over one hundred and forty incriminating exhibits that render those accused of scholastic dishonesty guilty as charged.

   Griff Ruby's mega-part comprehensive series "The Art of Scholastic Dishonesty" has been dedicated to exposing not only the heresy of Feeneyism, but also the intended deliberate dishonest deception of those who have deceived. He has done so for the sake of those who have been deceived. Griff completes his final three-part installment in refuting Peter Dimond's Treatise which steadfastly defends and promotes Feeneyism. . We have now arrived at the closing arguments which clearly, using 112 failsafe evidential examples and proving 30 misquotes by Dimond in his Treatise and others, that these are the final nails in the coffin of Feeneyism. Good Riddance forever more as we let it die in hopes souls do not die believing the lies perpetrated by those exhibiting such blatant scholastic dishonesty. Thus Griff presents the final convincing and irrefutable proof with his Closing Arguments Against Feeneyism and the Treatise


As we illustrated over a year and a half ago, the flies have not learned. Now they are caught in the web - a web of deceit. Seemingly nothing can save the SSPX as they flounder away in the sticky, sunken schismatic silk trap woven by the counterfeit church of conciliarism. Memo to Bishop Fellay: Don't say you weren't warned!

   Just a few weeks after suspicions of Bishop Bernard Fellay selling out the Society of St. Piux X came true, there has been fallout within the ranks and all hell has broken out in trying to turn the media spin upright. Benedict is getting pummeled on all sides and, for the most part, deservedly so for he has chosen Mammon over Christ. What does that tell Fellay? Do you think maybe by now he's had a change of heart? A big twinge of regret as all the dirty laundry of SSPX infighting is laid out for the secular honchos to sift through and hang certain principles out to dry. That is the modus operandi of the apostate Modernists - divide and conquer. This was foretold by numerous watchdogs within the Traditional movement when Ratzinger was elected and again when he issued his invalid Motu Proprio Summarum Pontificum. But most in the SSPX evidently couldn't hear the barking because of the din of denial coming from those who had been duped and who, prior to that, had been vociferous in their resistance against the heresies of Ratzinger. But they fell for the sweet talk and were so easily sucked into Ratzinger's web of deceit. Now there is seemingly no way out for those willing to compromise, to offer an ounce of incense to the idols of conciliarism. While confusion reigns in SSPX camps as they try to justify how Fellay's betrayal is being loyal to Archbishop Lefebvre, it speaks well for those who have not and will not cave to conciliarism and that is the Sedevacantists. Editor Michael Cain points out that the Thuc Line, (aka Rebiba Line) will come out stronger and increase their ranks when the smoke of satan clears and many within SSPX circles realize the truth cannot change and no union can be attained with an antipope who governs a different relgion, one that is definitely not Catholic. There is a positive side to all this and that is that Fellay's agenda will wake a lot of people up and cause them to connect the dots where they'll see the logic and syllogism that the true Roman Catholic Church remains in an interminable interregnum. He traces the solution five centuries back to point out that The Only Voice of Resistance left is Right


For long the catechism has been the vehicle for explaining the holy Faith, laying out the tenets in understandable language. No where does the Catechism ever deny Baptism of Blood or Baptism of Desire, thus leaving the Feeneyites with empty pages for their arguments.

   Griff Ruby's mega-part comprehensive series "The Art of Scholastic Dishonesty" has been dedicated to exposing not only the heresy of Feeneyism, but also the intended deliberate dishonest deception of those who have deceived. He has done so for the sake of those who have been deceived. Griff continues his final three-part installment in refuting Peter Dimond's Treatise which steadfastly defends and promotes Feeneyism. In the second part of his twelfth installment the Catechetical tenets are introduced as evidence against the fallacy that Baptism of Blood and Baptism of Desire are heresy. Rather the Catechisms overwhelmingly support BOB and BOD and leave no room for rebuttal for Roma locuta est whether it is The Catechism of Trent, the Catechism of St. Pius X or the Baltimore Catechism to name a few. Thus Griff presents the second of a three part closing argument against the Treatise with The Catechism Against Feeneyism and the Treatise


Perseverance and Prayer, with a lot of Penance is our only alternative to surviving the onslaught of the devil for the ranks of the Resistance are thinning thanks to the SSPX hoisting the white flag of surrender.

   Though we have not come close to even the minimum funds needed to stay on line, mainly because so few have responded, we have a reprieve to publish at least one more month. Thus, despite the feeble response to this traditional apostolate's plea It is the Eleventh Hour. Now it all depends on You!, The DailyCatholic still has a pulse, but barely. Editor Michael Cain explains the status and then weighs in on how it would seem the devil is winning with so many events portending bad omens for true Catholics from Obamamania that is running amok as the country is being run askew to the deaths of two devoted traditional priests - one Fr. Eldred Leslie, a missionary ordained by Archbishop Lefebvre, was murdered by a slacker in South Africa - to the apparent sellout to the usurper 'pope' by Bishop Bernard Fellay of the Society, which the Archbishop founded, and the thousands of Catholics who had resisted the conciliar concessions. Cain wonders aloud what happens to them and how do we welcome those who will be given the grace to see the error of such folly and will flee the SSPX. What shall we do when Obama's naturalistic nihilistic and socialistic reforms are revealed for what they are: Marxism? What shall we do when persecutions intensify against Christians, and they most certainly will, especially traditional Catholics who will be the first to be labeled 'hate mongers' because they love Our Lord Jesus Christ more than anyone or anything else and will not compromise their Faith for anything? He asks these and more questions in his editorial Now What?


The Dead Theologians Society are very much alive in their doctrinal accordance and they weigh in with living proof that overwhelmingly favors Baptism of Blood and Baptism of Desire as being in total union with the First Dogma Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus.

   Griff Ruby's mega-part comprehensive series "The Art of Scholastic Dishonesty" has been dedicated to exposing not only the heresy of Feeneyism, but also the intended deliberate dishonest deception of those who have deceived. He has done so for the sake of those who have been deceived. After eleven installments, Griff begins his final three-part installment in refuting Peter Dimond's Treatise which steadfastly defends and promotes Feeneyism. In the first part of his twelfth installment he calls credible Church Theologians to the bench to testify to the overwhelming support for Baptism of Blood and Baptism of Desire. The virtually unanimous consensus of at least twenty-five respected Church theologians sampled over the ages has been consistently in agreement for BOB and BOD and scarcely an opinion breathed, let alone even one identified convincing argument, or any consensus, against Baptism of Blood and/or Baptism of Desire. Thus Griff presents the first of a three part closing argument against the Treatise with Theologians Against Feeneyism and the Treatise


   We've been incommunicado for the past two weeks. Why? That's what the editor of The DailyCatholic and Executive Director of SANCTUS Michael Cain explains in a heartfelt last chance plea to save this publication. The recession has hit charities hard and SANCTUS is definitely not immune as he documents. Because of the necessity of our plea and because we have not had internet connection for e-mail or phone since December 31, we are running only this one article and pray it gets wide play and a generous response. If not, say sayonara to The DailyCatholic. That's how crucial the situation is. This time during the month of January is crunch time. It will give evidence how sincere Traditional Catholics really are. There are many Novus Ordinarians who would love to see us close up shop. Do you really want to see conciliar Modernists gloat? Think about such a scenario as these barbarian 'bishops' continue to close down only the traditional churches and take glee in trashing/selling sacred statues and sacramentals. Please tell us that Traditional Catholics truly do care and are charitable with their time, talents and treasures. Please tell us that Traditional Catholics are not miserly and apathetic. Please show us you care! Yes, we are in tough economic times, but have you ever thought the reason we are is because so many have hoarded their money instead of helping those working in God's vineyard? Well, the time has come that a decision must be made. For the answers, see Cain's editorial It is the Eleventh Hour. Now it all depends on You!



This special feature is provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. With the type so small in most bibles, we publish it here in larger type in conjunction with the Epistle and Gospel for the Sunday Mass with the cogent comprehensive Catholic Commentary penned by Father George Leo Haydock on the Douay-Rheims version of the New Testament. The commentary for the Fourth Sunday of Advent lays out the expectations of the great Light in the darkness Who will redeem man as has been foretold with the immediate precursor of the Messias being St. John the Baptist proclaiming the Lord by being the Voice of one crying in the wilderness in fulfilling the prophecy of Isaias that "all flesh shall see salvation" by alerting the world to pray and repent, to "make straight His paths." A manifestation that God depends on man for cooperation in abiding by His holy will as can be seen in this Sunday's Commentary "Make Straight His Paths"




Until now ignorance may have been bliss, but in weighing all the evidence, we can see the consequences of continuing to acknowledge a known, blatant heretic as being in union with Christ and His Church.

In an effort to be fair and balanced as a certain network claims, John Gregory tackles a subject, that until recently had not been addressed fully in traditional circles. However the meaning of a certain sentence in the Diptychs of the Living has suddenly become a hot topic, infuriating some, reassuring others. The main point is that though "it" is said silently in the Canon of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, to be silent when one knows what "it" really means is to consent to heresy and be culpable in uniting with an Antichrist as St. John identifies in his epistle. That is not Catholic and, contrary to what some may have conveniently believed to this point in time, we can no longer hide our head in the sand as if we didn't know what is at stake. John provides the rationales for both sides of the una cum controversy in sedevacantist camps and has come to the only conclusion that faithful Catholics can arrive at considering the circumstances that one must always be honest with God and oneself. To be in union with a heretic is being dishonest! He provides the evidence in his piece Clarifying the una cum Controversy




In the midst of Advent we take time to rejoice as we say several times during the holy Sacrifice of the Mass Gaudete; something that gives us hope just as it inflamed the hearts of those hearing St. John the Baptist to repent for the Lord was nigh.

This special feature is provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. With the type so small in most bibles, we publish it here in larger type in conjunction with the Epistle and Gospel for the Sunday Mass with the cogent comprehensive Catholic Commentary penned by Father George Leo Haydock on the New Testament. The commentary for the Third Sunday of Advent expresses joy for all in both the Epistle where St. Paul speaks of the attributes of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with Repentant Prayer, Adoration, Petition and Thanksgiving in preparation for the Lord and in the gospel of St. John, his namesake the Baptist, when grilled by the Jews, confounds them by not identifying Who the Lord is by name, but by the Old Testament prophecies and when interrogated as to who the Baptist is he answers with what Isaias foretold as "the voice of one crying in the wilderness" in The Voice of the Precursor


The tragic journey of a good priest who thought outside the box and, by his stubborn pride, found himself and his followers outside the Church even though ironically that is what he fought so hard to defend, but never to Christ's true Authority on earth.

Griff Ruby presents the second part of his eleventh installment of his mega-part comprehensive series "The Art of Scholastic Dishonesty." After exposing the cult, Griff now poses the question: What part of "Rome has spoken, the case is closed" didn't Fr. Feeney and his stubborn followers get? The Holy Office gave him every opportunity to state his case, but he cowardly refused, bunkering down with his cult followers at St. Benedict Center, fighting his battles through his tabloid. While he might have won some battles from the rooftops it all proved futile for he lost a war, one he started and was never necessary. Rather than honorable surrender, he went shamefully to the gallows outside the Church. A sad, tragic commentary on a man who ruined his life and the lives of many who even today continue to stubbornly cling to heresy. All Feeney had to do in order to become the good general, the noble soldier of Christ was to submit to the proper and highest authority in Rome when Rome was still the true Authority. Feeney had every opportunity and he shunned Christ and His Church out of pride. Griff chronicles the events and correspondence leading up to Fr. Feeney's excommunication as he documents in the second part of installment eleven The Church vs. Feeneyism



Today the darkness grows ever stronger, the unholy roam the earth, chaos has snuffed out the calm, the brightness of the True Light has been greatly dimmed. What will you do to keep the Light shining? The inmates are running the asylum with no authoritive power. We have the blind leading the blind. Where is the rage of those on watch? Where is our outrage?

Cyndi Cain returns with another lesson, this one on the energy problem. No, not oil, or alternative energy but rather the only energy that counts. She's talking about the energy to fuel our souls to conduct the True Light to others. Too many sources are draining that energy because we have allowed it to infringe on our spiritual conduits, on our power supplies of sacrifice and virtue. The world, the flesh and the devil with the help of the conciliar compromisers have sapped so many souls of the Light above that a great darkness creeps steadily and stealthily in from below, engulfing so many clinging to the shadows of political correctness and complacency. Lukewarmness on the right only feeds the frenzy of the radicals to snuff out all sense of decency and goodness, all sense of goodness and grandeur, all sense of the sacred and sublime. St. Ambrose encountered the same plight over fifteen centuries ago for he faced similiar erosion of morals, of the faith and of an epicurean endeavor to embrace the world, albeit, not as widespread and ensconsed as today, perhaps not as perverse either, but definitely authored by the same angel of light who refused to shine. Now it is our turn. Will we also refuse? Or will we answer God's call? His call to Rage, Rage Against the Dying of the True Light.


What we need today are men with the backbone of St. Ambrose to stand against the usurpers, to cry out "You are false shepherds, begone! Bring back the true Faith to the starving, depleted, scattered flocks." He was a unifier. Is there anyone who will step forward and truly unite Catholics once more against the heresies so rampant today?

Today, besides being the Vigil of the Immaculate Conception and Second Sunday of Advent superseding the normal vigil day of fast and abstinence, it is the Double Feast of the Holy Doctor of the Church Saint Ambrose. Ambrose was the first to migrate from the north, the Rhineland area of Trier and settled in Milan, Italy where he cast away a lucrative career as a lawyer and politician to accept the people's acclaim as their Bishop. He ruled in holiness and justice and was responsible for converting and nurturing Saint Augustine among thousands of converts. Together they fought vigorously against the Arian heresy towards the end of the 4th century. Unlike the pansy 'bishops' of today, Ambrose stood strong against the heretics and even the emperor for he was not ashamed of proclaiming Christ's truths nor was he afraid of offending anyone if they offended God. This pagan-born saint is known as Saint Ambrose "Converter of Saints"




The prophecies play a part of the two succeeding liturgies for Sunday and Monday, one from Isaias foretelling the lineage of the Savior and the immediate Precursor of the Messias and the other illustrating God's plan from all eternity to effect the birth of the Promised One via the purest of tabernacles in the Blessed Virgin Mary

John Gregory has provided Father Leo George Haydock's cogent comprehensive Catholic Commentary on the Douay-Rheims version of the New Testament. The commentary for the Second Sunday of Advent expresses hope for all in both the Epistle where St. Paul speaks of patience in persevering for Christ and in the Gospel our Lord manifests to the Baptist's disciples that Jesus is indeed the Messias Whom John the Baptist has strived to make way the path for. Christ proves this through the prophecies of the Old Testament, specifically the prophet Isaias who foretold the "Root of Jesse" and affirming St. John the Baptist as a prophet as the immediate Precursor of the Messias. In fact, Our Lord reveals that His cousin in prison is "More Than a Prophet"
The commentary for the Solemnity of the Double of the First Class Feast of the Immaculate Conception show how from all eternity God had chosen the most pure Star of the sea, the light of the heavens reflected in the purest human tabernacle ever created - the Blessed Virgin Mary. Though not specifically identified in Proverbs, we see in the Gospel of St. Luke that she is indeed named, not only specifically as Mary, but "full of grace" and "blessed"..."among all women." This confirmation comes directly from God via His Archangel Gabriel and is all the more stunning since Mary is truly a virgin, at the time of her conception through her Assumption she remains forever ever virgin, ever pure, ever Immaculate as we see in the commentary for this Holyday, From All Eternity


Stubbornness is a trait born of pride often found in cults who refuse to believe their leader is all wet, totally off track. Such is the case with the cult of Feeneyism entrenched at the St. Benedict Center which was founded by Fr. Feeney as ground zero and carried out in defiance of Eternal Rome's warnings to cease and desist. In their disobedience they ceased being "slaves of Mary" and became slaves of heresy.

Griff Ruby resumes his mega-part comprehensive series "The Art of Scholastic Dishonesty" as he now focuses on the messenger. Much has been said about the message of Feeneyism and now Griff sets his sights on the messenger who started this heretical mess, one Fr. Leonard Feeney and how he veered from the path that was formerly so promising. That is what happens when cults are formed and given more importance than the Faith itself. One definition of a cult is "zealous devotion to a person, ideal or thing" and that would definitely apply to those who have so stubbornly clung to the heresy of Feeneyism even in the face of what holy Mother Church has decreed. Normally, to prove a case against such a cult those outside the cult would be called upon to provide evidence or bring testimony to refute the defense of said cult, but in this case the evidence from members of the cult themselves easily indicts all those involved within the cult of Feeneyism. The question is are they, and their iconic leader of recent memory, really that stupid or that proud and devious? Griff shows, sadly, that it is the latter as he documents in the first part of installment eleven Conspiracy of a Cult


With every day we can see so obviously more and more incidents and occasions where Fr. Joseph Ratzinger posing as a "pope", continues to scandalize, but then should we be surprised of such action from a blatant heretic? Of course not. The problem today is that Catholics do not hate heresy the way the saints have urged us to despise sin. Yes, we are to love the heretic, so much so that we must resist any persistent sinner and seek them back in the good graces, but for some this is nigh unto impossible since the vast majority accept a heretic as not only a "pope" but as being in good standing in the Catholic Church while gravely offending God and His First Commandment. Sadly there are many traditional Catholics who ignore this point by attending "una cum" Masses that are illicit. Fr. Anthony Cekada follows up his thoroughly researched thesis of last year The Grain of Incense: Sedevacantists and Una cum Masses with a two-page summary of that essay to reinforce that it is not just an "opinion" to stay away from Masses said in union with a heretic, but a fact backed by the Magisterium of the Church and a serious occasion for sin as Father explains in his article Should I Assist at a Mass that Names Benedict XVI in the Canon?

In addition, we present Bishop Daniel Dolan's affirmation of Fr. Cekada's solid Catholic stance with his sermon given at St. Gertrude the Great on the Last Sunday after Pentecost this year on "the abomination of desolation" in which His Excellency addresses the issue of assisting at Mass. To do so we must actively participate in the propitiatory holy Sacrifice of the Mass as decreed by Eternal Rome for beaucoup centuries and obliged before God "in perpetuity". When we do this we are in accord with the alter Christus - the priest - and if the priest is not in accord with Catholic truth than to knowingly participate is a grave sin. This includes recognizing a heretic as one in good standing before God. It cannot be done and since it is that is enough evidence that it is wrong and should be avoided as a danger to one's soul just as the ancient Christians refused to offer one grain of incense to the pagan gods, show also true Catholics must refuse any recognition to a pagan "pope." This recognition is the major problem with the SSPX, Motuarians, and those who resist yet recognize Ratzinger as a true "pope." His Excellency spells it out succinctly in his sermon Why Do We Say 'No' to the una cum Masses?



The total lack of charity came to a head and continues in the aftermath of the elections, but should that surprise anyone considering America has shown by their omissions and commissions that they don't love God. How then could they ever truly love their neighbor? Therein is the downfall in domino fashion of America as we know it. Civilization has asked for Chastisement and God will answer in kind. Beware.

In light of the recent elections and vitriol of the culture of death and sin-all-we-want crowds that have demanded rights that fly in the face of God, Scott Montgomery weighs in with a short essay on what we have lost for true love (not amare or agape, or even the kind of charity caritas St. Peter refers to in 1 Peter 4: 8, but the sincerest love with which Christ expects us to love Him and our neighbor, to truly love: diligere) - is trampled under when family and values are abandoned and ridiculed. This is the kind of love our Lord references in St. John 14: 15, Si diligis Me, Mandata Mea servate "If you love Me, keep My Commandments." Have we? It's obvious America has not and the consequences are also quite obvious for we have not learned from history or from Scripture. The result, as Scott shows, is the decline of civilization, even in the great United States of America. so blessed for so long by God, but which now cries out to Heaven for vengeance because of its blatant sins and abandonment of God and His Laws, both Natural and Supernatural. Scott laments America's fate for their faithlessness in his essay Charity and the Fall of the American Empire




Have we not seen the signs? There have been signs and we fail to see what they mean as the rest of the world goes merrily on its way toward perdition. Today's Gospel and Epistle forewarns us and yet so many opt to be politicaly correct rather than Christ-correct!.

John Gregory has provided Father Leo George Haydock's cogent comprehensive Catholic Commentary on the Douay-Rheims version of the New Testament. The First Sunday of Advent, the very first day of the new Liturgical Year begins the one-year cycle anew picking up with the apocalyptic warning Christ echoed in the Last Sunday of Pentecost's Gospel and Epistle. With the world, especially America ignoring the Scriptures of "not rioting and drunknenness," "not in chambering and impurities, not in contention and envy" should we follow the PC police and policies or Christ? That is a no-brainer to those who take their Faith seriously. Unless we "put on Christ" in all we do, we had better be prepared to put on an asbestos suit for we're going to need it when "the powers of Heaven shall be moved" and many will realize it's too late. For those who have clothed themselves in the armor of Faith and grace, there will be nothing to fear for "the kingdom of God is at hand" as indicated in the Haydock Commentary, Don't say we weren't warned
