Gabriel Garnica responds to the blatant idol worship of man personified in the Academy Awards and points out that it really was a blessing that Mel Gibson and his masterpiece The Passion of The Christ were not nominated for his reward will be great in Heaven.He doesn't need accolades from man, especially those who rail against Christ and His True Church. Gabriel explains how in Sunday's Gospel Our Lord's words "He that is not with Me is against Me" applies to today's society who have done all in their power to reject Him and His sound teachings. Gabriel also highlights how to include Mel's movie would be to expose the rest of the fare as mediocre. Now is that fair?Gabriel illustrates how two other movies are praised for the very things they come up short in and how The Passion puts them both to shame. He shows how Titanic, the only other blockbuster that made a killing at the box office, and a cult film for the bloodthirsty Kill Bill have been linked to The Passion of The Christ and in every way those other two films as well as all the nominees for this year's Oscars can't hold a candle to Mel and his 'little movie' that no one would touch with a ten foot trunk of wood. Gabriel manifests quite clearly the clear purpose Mel conveyed and how those who object are the very same who objected to accepting Christ and His truths. He explains in his column Passing on The Passion is 'their' loss
Echoes of True Catholicism
Dr. Marian Therese Horvat shares concerns about the secretivity surrounding the death of the last Fatima visionary Sister Lucia de Jesus dos Santos. Just as we asked on these pages last week, what are they hiding? so also Marian asks some pertinent questions and suspects with good evidence that Sister Lucia was getting 'bad information' as in false information, as in lies about the state of the church and the world. Marian also offers the conjecture that Sr. Lucia might very well have been silenced and suppressed in light of what her cousin Jacinta had told her before the latter died over 80 years ago: "When the time comes, speak, do not hide yourself." But hiding herself was the very thing she did or rather what the modernists did in hiding her away in a Carmelite convent in Coimbra, Portugal. Since 1970 she had been heavily censored and protected more than a Novus Ordo bishop hiding from the media or Traditional Catholics. What is on Sr. Lucy's computer, what words are in her diary that the modern Vatican institution is so afraid of revealing? What of the continuing corruption of the world and the nonconversion of Russia? Marian points out that the proof is in the pudding. Gone is the intercessor to stay the hand of the Father from spilling forth the Cup of Chastisement that runneth over. Now it's the time when deceit will be revealed, and God's hand will wash clean the decay that has permeated His Church effecting the entire world. Here on earth only those who survive the coming chastisements will know the answers. Marian explains in her column at Tradition In Action Forebodings about the Death of Sister Lucy
"Qui legit, intelligat"
In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Third Sunday of Lent, he packs a wallop in identifying the very problem those who have stayed with the Novus Ordo face today. They are bishopless and priestless for they have condoned the ransacking of traditional forms, especially in the Sacraments of Holy Orders. Father reminds us of the chicanery of the modernists who have done all they can to expunge Pius XII's Apostolic Constitution Sacramentum Ordinis to cover their tracks. Father Louis points out that it is not available anywhere on the web and we are going to do all in our power to procure this Acta Apostolicae Sedis from November 30, 1947 so that all will know the fullness of truth spoken of by Father in his no-nonsense sermon today. These men who have accepted modernism may look like bishops, they may sound like bishops (even though they don't ACT like bishops), but they are NOT bishops for, as Father reveals, their consecrations are not valid. Think about this as talk heats up of the impending Conclave in John Paul II's waning days and realize most all of those entering the Sistine Chapel are not even true cardinals, let alone priests or bishops. What does that portend for the next man who will claim to be pope? The apostasy is so great that it has laid waste to practically the entire conciliar church. Look around you at the ruins. There is scant left to choose from. Had these men been ordained according to the truly Catholic Rite, then, even were they to be the most vile of heretics, they would still be priests, albeit bad ones, but authentic ones. For some that is the case, but for those ordained according to Paul VI's changes, it wouldn't matter if they were in heresy or were the most holiest of men, they still are not properly ordained priests in Christ's One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. As Our Lord states in today's Gospel, "He who is not with Me is against Me." When the laity realize this truth by fleeing from the Novus Ordo Lodges and their Grand Masters in droves, then they will pray all the more earnestly for true bishops. That plea will be heard in Heaven only when NOM presbyters are re-ordained in accordance to the form and matter set in stone by Pius XII and begin to celebrate on a daily basis universally the Mass of All Ages and live the Faith as it has always meant to be lived. Father lays it out in his sermon based on Our Lord's words in Luke 11: 17. A Kingdom Brought to Desolation
Gabriel Garnica sounds the clarion of truth that the manipulators have twisted things so much that in order to garner protection and be among the privileged 'victims' one must be a terrorist or murderer because - well it's their right! How is it their right, especially when most of these terrorists have no idea what democracy or justice are? Because the bleeding heart liberals have empowered them. Gabriel offers a twist on this twisted thinking: label the innocent unborns as 'terrorists' and they'll receive sympathy; the same with Terri Schiavo. Rather than 'victim' call her something else and maybe the leftist progressives will rally for her cause the way they do for whales or some almost extinct least tern in the habitat which only increases costs for real estate and development, all passed on to the consumer. Gabriel points out that the price of honesty is too steep for these hypocrites in the legal, media, political, religious and social echelons who have set policy and culture. They are the ones who have been leading the exodus away from God, away from basic family values and there will be a price to pay. In this survival of the fittest world, sometimes the only way to play the game is turning the tables by trading labels for, as he shows, that just might be, short of divine help, The Secret to Protection
With this issue we introduce to The Daily Catholic readers Timothy Duff, who has taught Traditional Catholicism for decades. Tim is the author of the work The Church is not above Christ; thus we have selected the title Christus Primus - "Christ First" as the title for his column. He debuts today with something we should all realize. While he specifically identifies Fr. Paul Kramer, author of The Devil's Final Battle, for acknowledging the titles of heretics, it is a bad habit that many, many traditional writers have fallen into. This editor is guilty as well for it is admittedly one of those habits that are hard to kick, especially after so many years of being programmed to be blindly beholden to the Novus Ordinarian Lodges. The facts are as Christ points out in this coming Sunday's Gospel, "He who is not with Me, is against Me. And he that gathereth not with Me scattereth." If one is true to Christ, then they will not change one iota of the Sacred Deposit of the Faith. We can see that has been done wholesale. Ergo, those changers are not with Christ, but against Him. They may be Freemasons, they may be clowns, they are definitely Modernists, but they are not Catholic. Tim points out simply where we must stand and what we must state in following the infallible, perennial Living Magisterium of the Church guided by the holy wisdom of St. Robert Cardinal Bellarmine who addressed this very subject. How can we give recognition to anyone who has not entered by the door of grace, but another way - as in through "the smoke of satan"? Tim urges all to recognize the enemy and do not encourage him for he is a wolf who seeks to scatter the sheep as Tim explains in his column
Heretics are not Catholics
Gabriel Garnica reminds us that it was one year ago today when every Traditional Catholic anticipated the debut of Mel Gibson's masterpiece The Passion of The Christ. He points out appropriately that those same enthusiasts are greatly disappointed that Mel has been shut out of major awards this year, but that why should we worry or Mel about such trivial things? Christ has already promised a cornucopia of spiritual awards and that is really all that counts as evidenced from the message of the film. The true travesty is that those who try to ignore Gibson's classic are ignoring both the messenger and the message. Gabriel shows the parallels and how that simple, beautiful, loving message is timeless for no one has ever depicted more realistically or visually and so simply why Christ died for each and every person. They have forgotten that touching scene when a bloodied, weakened Jesus looks into His Mother's eyes along the Via Dolorosa and encourages her, "Mother, I make all things new." Despite the broken promises of Hollywood and the industry governed by satan, Gabriel shows how His Promise Holds
Editor Michael Cain poses some thought-provoking questions about the death of Sister Lucia for it has created many more questions than answers as the modern Vaticanistas go into defensive mode. Events over the past week have revealed a few things already, but there are still many, many pieces of the puzzle missing. We know, as always is the fate of those who fabricate, that eventually they'll trip over their own tongues for they have left a long trail of lies and cover-ups. Is that really the visionary Sister Lucia in the coffin, or was that an imposter? Considering the subterfuge over the past 40 years, you can't put it past them. Now the question arises: what are they hiding? Short of CSI, Cain suggests more of the faithful demand answers, make noise, and expose the charlatans before they totally bury the purpose of Fatima and spin it into their own ecumaniacal agenda to establish the One World Order and the advent of the Antichrist. Fatima has always held the answer. The problem lies with those who know and keep it hidden. What are they hiding? Souls have a right to know, have a need to know for the sake of the Faith, for the sake of salvation. Cain pulls no punches in his editorial
Only Heaven Knows!
Gabriel Garnica turns his attention on the man who, though Christ had great hopes for, struggled in his journey to fulfill his duties. That man is St. Peter, our first Pope and whose feast we celebrate tomorrow. Gabriel reminds that if Peter could be forgiven for denying His Lord and Master, then there is infinite hope for any of us no matter how badly we have offended God. The key is to realize it, to be true to oneself by being true to God. In addition to the parallel of Peter, Gabriel offers how important it is to want to be with Christ, to receive Him worthily. In order to do that we must also want to be fully sorry for our sins and amend our lives so that we will never again offend Our Lord. Being human that isn't easy. Christ knows that and that is why He gave us the vehicle of the Sacrament of Penance as a visible sign of His infinite Mercy. Gabriel points out the fact that many today receive Him in the Eucharist unworthily because they do not feel the need for confession. That only compounds the sin and leads more to the path Judas took. To follow Peter, we must refrain from receiving Holy Communion until we have availed ourselves of the healing graces of a sincere confession. To think otherwise is foolish and leads toward perdition. Gabriel explains in his column Quo Vadis Tua Culpas?
Christ or chaos
Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey alerts all to the sly spin of Zenit in trying to pass by the reader the authenticity of something the Blessed Mother never intended. On the heels of Sister Lucia dos Santos' death, Zenit interviewed the director of the Information Center of the Conference of Catholic Bishops of Russia. Now a man in this position should know better but considering the sad state of the hierarchy today and all attached to them, such misinformation seems the norm rather than the exception. Tom takes Zenit to task for not challenging the Protestant mind-set of Victor Khroul who besides being director is also the editor of the Catholic weekly Svet Evangelia. If proselytism is now forbidden, it would show that Russia has definitely not been consecrated. If, as Khroul purports that it merely means passing from non-belief to belief, that opens the door for the Russian Orthodox to stop Catholicism at the border. Either way the modernists are caught in their own lies. The fact is that Catholicism must be preached in Russia. Christ charged us to in Mark 16: 15-16, and Our Lady reinforced that with her request at Fatima. Despite those facts the modern Vatican institution has twisted and altered the messages, now proceeding, over the last several years, to fabricate the Blessed Mother's words to fit their ecumaniacal agenda, something which previous reliable Sovereign Pontiffs and Saints have condemned. Tom actually castigates Zenit as the messenger who has been sloppy, if not totally irresponsible in their reporting. Are they reporters or PR men? Better yet, are they Catholic? Tom gives us a hint in his column The Conversion of Russia to the Catholic Faith
"Qui legit, intelligat"
In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Second Sunday of Lent, he shows the contradiction of what the modern Vatican institution promotes to what the Apostle Paul preached to the Thessalonians in today's Epistle. Modern Rome seeks favor from the world, Eternal Rome seeks God's favor. One is consequently disoriented, while the other - though dwarfed by the conciliarist church - keeps us oriented on the Goal - striving for sanctification so that when each stands before the Eternal Judge at each's Particular Judgment, each will hope to hear those same words from the Father which we read in today's Gospel "I am well pleased." That is only possible if one toes the mark by abstaining from fornication and all other sins that destroy the foundation of grace as Paul emphasizes in today's Epistle. Father points out that what is going on in Modern Rome is the very thing Sister Lucia dos Santos recognized as "diabolical disorientation." One wonders with her now gone, how the modernists will explain that. They've already ordered her cloistered cell sealed. It sounds like they have something to hide. But one cannot hide from God for He knows the heart and though many have become disoriented, only the Traditional rite and rubrics focus fully on striving toward holiness and, in so doing, adhering to the will of God. Father explains in his sermon "The will of God - your sanctification"
Hope on the Horizon
Doug Giles illustrates how being a saint was never a picnic, but not striving to be, not doing what God wanted, would really bring the ants swarming, and the bees, and locusts, well, you get the picture. Doug in his Clashpoint column offers the story of Jonah who, because of his own stubbornness, procrastination, what have you, ended up in the "belly of hell." He sums it up that if we don't follow the will of God, He just might send a storm where the only refuge from the torrents could be the bowels of a fish. It matters not here that whales are mammals and not fish, for it is not pertinent to Doug's clashpoint. What does matter is that we realize in order to get us motivated God might need to shake us up a bit. The more He shakes, the more He means business because He loves us. Funny way of showing it one might say, but as Doug shows in his column, He works in mysterious and wondrous ways. Tough love is like that. All should be able to relate with being tossed to and fro because we were spouting like a blowhole what man wants to hear whereas it will take a mighty spout to bring us to our senses to do what God wants to hear and see. But then it's better to be regurgitated from the belly of a whale, than vomited from the mouth of the Lord (cf. Apocalypse 3: 12). Doug asks us to remember poor ol' Jonah. He elaborates in
As we close Ember Week, Gabriel Garnica offers some interesting facts on the miraculous manifestations of Christ's presence. He points to the well-known Shroud of Turin, as well as the Sudarium of Oviedo in Spain which is thought to be the burial cloth that covered Our Lord's face. To verify these he brings up the Miracle of Lanciano when a priest, doubting the true presence in the early 1700's, saw for himself the Body of Christ in the form of bread become actual flesh and the Blood of Christ in the form of wine become actual blood - His Blood. To this day it remains, visible in a Lanciano church in eastern Italy near the Adriatic coast and south of Loreto. What is fascinating about Gabriel's explanation of the type of blood, which he points out is "one in 200 billion" - think of those odds - is fascinating for Christ is both the the Universal Recipient and the Universal Donor and how this corresponds perfectly with the Human and Divine character of Christ's Blood. Fascinating reading and deduction awaits you in Gabriel's column for Ember Saturday titled The Blood Type of Salvation
The Straight Stuff
Griff Ruby presents the third part of his essay on how Lumen Gentium changed everything. Today he shows the grave inadequacies of the fruits from something that was supposed to be "wide and generous" - the "Indult Mass" - and which, in fact, one needs a detective to find. Griff relates his own experiences of this 'hide and seek' game when visiting in London, England a few years ago. It prompts one to ask: If the Church is universal why are the "Indult Masses" so sparse throughout the world? Why are most of the hierarchy from the top on down so squeamish about permitting a Mass set in stone for 1800 years? What frees them to be so disobedient to the perpetual celebret of St. Pius V and the Dogmatic Council of Trent? In those questions rest the fate of the Modern Vatican Institution as we know it today...all traceable back to Lumen Gentium wherein the visible unity of the Church was distributed only partially to the Vatican Institution and partially elsewhere, and what the Vatican institution must do to regain its former claim as being the True Church.
Griff explains in Part Three of What is your picture?
Following up our piece from Inside The Vatican exclusive Newsflash last week, we present today editor Robert Moynihan's latest editorial in the print edition of the January-February 2005 issue of Inside The Vatican. In his commentary he focuses on the infinite beauty, reverence and superiority of what Fr. Faber called the "most beautiful thing this side of Heaven." Robert's words confirm that as he brings out the differences between the Old and the sterile, watered-down, clueless New Mass which, as he proves, comes up greatly lacking, if even possessing any redeeming qualities short of what the Vatican's "foreign minister" calls dropping some repetitions which are, in fact, meaningful prayers that only add to the graces attained when one assists at the Mass of All Ages - the Immemorial Mass of Tradition as is pointed out in our series 77 Graces. More and more the editor of one of the most influential and respected publications in Rome is turning back to the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church. It's the only way to turn. He shows how this direction is stirred by

Making Sense of Sensus Catholicus
In conjunction with Ember Week in Lent, we bring you a meditative essay on mortification - both interiorly and exteriorly - by Father Dominic Radecki of the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen. Along with his twin brother Father Franscisco Radecki, he is the author of a powerful new book released a few months ago which is an easy-to-read compendium on Church history from Peter to present time. It also devotes the second half of the book to the who, where, when, what, how and why of Vatican II. In this feature today, first published in the Spring issue of the Reign of Mary last year, Fr. Dominic points out that if we do not bridle our self-will through the practice of interior mortification and conformity to God’s will, we cannot advance in the spiritual life. Because of our self-will, we will be destroying with one hand the spiritual edifice which we are trying to construct with the other hand. Father provides examples and exemplications of mighty saints in bringing home his point in his article
Interior Mortification and Conformity to the Will of God
The Fatima File
With the death of Sister Lucia de Jesus dos Santos, we felt it important to keep her memory alive with the unfinished business of the Third Secret. In today's Fatima File we bring you a trilogy of articles exposing the cracks in the thin-skinned shell of Modern Rome's "interpetation" that so insidiously avoids any mention of apostasy in the Church. The first article is a release from the Fatima Center and the second part is an interesting twist on the secret that was released in which one of the leading Mariologist theologians, albeit Novus Ordo, refutes Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger's interpretation. The piece was composed by Ron and Kirstie Finster as part of their series on "The Third Secret of Fatima." The third and final piece is from WorldNetDaily, written most probably shortly after the 'Third Secret' was "revealed" and is a strong denial of what it really contained as Father Gommar DePauw, founder of the Catholic Traditionalist movement in America and a charter member of the Tower of Trent Hall of Honor, debunks the new Vatican's spin. With the passing of the last Fatima seer, we present the three pieces together during this week of her interment. Did the Third Secret of Fatima Die With Sister Lucy?
Christ or chaos
The strong faith and backbone of Saint Thomas More and Saint John Fisher has been abandoned for the politically correct pandering by the modern primates of the United Kingdom. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey exposes the hypocrisy and heresy of these new cardinals of newChurch over the impending 'marriage' of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles, a former 'Catholic' who obtained no annulment and cannot possibly receive one for Canon Law - even the watered-down 1983 Code - does not allow such escapes. If so, Henry VIII could easily have disposed of Catherine of Aragon to marry Anne Boleyn before tiring of her. Said the Sovereign Pontiff Pope Clement VII to the English monarch at the time: "If I had two souls, I would gladly give you the annulment, but since I have but one I cannot for a Heavenly kingdom is more important to me than an earthly one. I will not betray my Heavenly King and His Holy Church." But New Order red-hats Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor of England and Ireland's Cardinal Keith Patrick Michael O'Brien don't think in that 'medieval way.' They reject the heroism of the English martyrs and show themselves even more protestant than their Anglican counterparts, with the exception of the looney Archbishop of Canterbury. Tom shows they are not the only cowards as he points out the same hypocrisy on this side of the pond. He sets the Novus Ordinarians on their ears with solid Church doctrine and the infallible Word of God in his column If Only Henry VIII Could Have Waited for Cormac Cardinal Murphy O'Connor and Keith Cardinal O'Brien
For Ember Wednesday Gabriel Garnica reminds us of the why the True Church has Ember Days during the liturgical year and why Ember Days in Lent are the most pertinent in equating with Our Lord's suffering. Gabriel explains why suffering is a key component in unlocking the door to Heaven. In fact, Our Lord clearly pointed this out in Matthew 16: 24-25, Mark 8: 34-35, and Luke 9: 23, "If any man will follow Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whosoever will save his life, shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life for My sake, and for the gospel, shall save it." Gabriel shows how it is not a matter of finding oneself as the world promotes with so much division, but rather in losing oneself in giving in to the will of God that graces are multiplied a hundred-fold. He illustrates how the narrow way is the only way in his column for Ember Wednesday that is the sum of salvation in Equation for Eternity
The Fatima File
In commemoration of the death of Sister Lucia dos Santos, we felt it important to bring you today a "Gem from the Past" - an essay by Mark Fellows,the author of one of the most definitive works on the entire scope of Fatima, titled "Fatima at Twilight." With her passing, twilight has become a bitter night as has been documented in this feature series on these pages. Fellow's piece laid out the arguments regarding Sister Lucia and how it didn't calculate then with the swashbuckling Vatican spin that was disseminated through the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith's The Message of Fatima...and it doesn't add up now. In truth, there are too many holes in their theory and the hull of their deception to make it sail. Sadly, the propaganda has dulled and deceived so many into believing what in truth is a false flag raised to deceive souls and cover up the real intentions of the modernist buccaneers. Through the good graces and permission of John Vennari of Catholic Family News we were able to bring you this in three parts. Today we bring you the essay in whole as we present Fellows' excellent, fact-filled feature which exposes the facades on the cardboard hull of the modernists' pirate ship, illustrated so well in Lucy and the Pirates
Christ or chaos
Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey pens a heart-rendering tribute to the long-suffering servant of Our Lady of Fatima, the seer Sister Lucia dos Santos who passed away this past Sunday just five weeks shy of her 98th birthday. Tom shares his own experience on how he was first introduced to the importance of Fatima in his earliest parochial schooling and how that childlike devotion and foundation in the faith in carrying out Our Lady's messages at Fatima have sustained him when everything else was falling apart. He recalls the wisdom of Cardinal John Carberry as late as 1982 in reminding his fellow bishops in America that there was only one sure-fire peace plan and that was to heed all the Blessed Mother imparted at Fatima. Already the modernists had infiltrated and the poor cardinal was laughed at for such superstition by men who should have been living the Faith but had already sold out. Tom writes "Living at a time when popes redefine various doctrines and cardinals congratulate members of royal families entering upon illicit marriages, we must flee like the Fatima children to the sure refuge of Our Lady's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, praying the Rosary with attentiveness and fervor as we keep the Five First Saturdays and pray that our children may yet live to be the beneficiaries of the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the chief fruits of which will be the restoration of the Social Reign of Christ the King in the world and the restoration of Tradition within the heart of Holy Mother Church." That is the key to carrying on the campaign lived so faithfully and spread by Sister Lucia as Tom explains in his column Our Lady's Suffering Messenger: Sister Lucia of Fatima
Gabriel Garnica addresses an issue that vexes many and confuses the masses and that is how can a minority rule, especially the way it does today? Polls are taken and the majority would seem to favor the forbidding of abortion and sodomy. Yet, the minority rules and it does so, as Gabriel explains, through political power, influence, and social/cultural appeal spun by progressivist agendas from the sodomites, abortionists, and anti-Christian camps. But try as they might, no might can enable them in ultimate victory for they will always be a minority when opposing God Who is the Majority. The more oppressed a minority might be, if that minority - like the early Christians or Traditional Catholics today - is in accord with the divine will, then they will never be a minority but always in Heaven's majority. Gabriel illustrates examples from Gideon and Machabees to modern times to bring home that point for "only minority struggles which emerge from God Almighty, His Divine Will, and the teachings of Christ can lead to ultimate moral success and eternal salvation!" The conclusion, as he syllogizes so well, is that there can be no majority without God and with God one can never be considered a minority for, as Gabriel proves, God is A Majority of Three in One!
Christ or chaos
Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey acknowledges what many of us in our journey towards the truth have discovered and others are finally beginning to discover: many, many of the things that John Paul II has done over his 26-year pontificate and even before, not only fly in the face of the Sacred Deposit of the Faith, but were strongly condemned by recent reliable Sovereign Pontiffs. He proffers the most recent statement by Karol Wojtyla issued on the heels of his return to the Vatican after a touch-and-go fragile 10-day stay at Gemelli Hospital that the French Government "permits the Church in France to fulfill its own mission with confidence and serenity, and to take an ever more active role in the life of society, respecting the competencies of each." John Paul II said thus on the 100th anniversary of the separation of Church and State about a once thoroughly Catholic country - the eldest daughter of the Church, Our Lady's beloved France. Two years after France sold out, Tom documents what the holy St. Pius X asserted in his 1907 encyclical to the French Bishops Une Fois Encore. His Holiness' words are the inevitable condemnation of John Paul's actions and words in his most recent praising of secularism. Tom also adds the words of the holy Patron of France St. Louis IX as well as Pope Leo XIII. It was obvious that John Paul II had embraced the state with his statement last summer in France on his trip to Lourdes. He met with Jacques Chirac and proclaimed the Masonic cry of the French Revolution, "Liberty, Equality and Fraternity" in the great brotherhood of man. Tom relates the hard truth of the deception in his most recent column Forgotten Popes, Redefined Doctrines
"Qui legit, intelligat"
In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the First Sunday of Lent, he focuses on the Gospel from Matthew in which there were two 'spirits' present - the good: the Holy Ghost; the bad - the devil who tempted our Lord in the desert. God knows the evil one has been tempting every one of us during this 40-year time in the desert of deception and destruction of the Church thanks to Vatican II, which Father refers to as the bad spirit - the "spirit of Vatican II" and how we can know them by their fruits. Father emphasizes that we need to realize this and be very, very leery and suspicious of the false prophets who would lead us away from the constituted evangelic traditions and infrangible truths handed down. He cites the Fear of the Lord instilled in that holy doctor Saint Teresa of Avila and if she was worried about fearing hell, then we sure should be. That, as Father illustrates with the Roman Protestant church's total relaxation and abandonment of the necessity for fast, abstinence and penance, has made millions of souls ripe for satan's snares. Father reminds us of St. Peter's words on the virtues and how they can bulk us up with legal spiritual steroids, if you will, to enable us to fend off the beast when he comes calling, tempting. "Vade Satana!" Father explains in his sermon "Now is the day of salvation"
Gabriel Garnica extends the celebration of Lourdes with a column on that great virtue of humility which pays the greatest dividends spiritually. He upholds as an ideal role model the humble peasant visionary of Lourdes - the holy young Bernadette whose body remains incorrupt today in Nevers, France. Throughout her life she remained humble and an edification to all that humility bears the greatest fruit. It takes a humble heart to obediently dig in the mud at Our Lady's request; it also takes faith. Bernadette had both and was duly rewarded with Heavenly bliss, though she considered herself a sinner. That, in a nutshell, is the essence of sainthood: sinners striving to be holy. Thanks to her holy humility and obedience millions have been healed by the waters and graces of Lourdes. Gabriel shows the contradictions of a proud world that flies in the face of those striving for humility. Yet humility is the only thing we can bank on for just as Proverbs and Our Lord, as well as St. Peter, have affirmed. To be rich we need Humility: Heaven's Currency
The Straight Stuff
Griff Ruby presents the second part of his essay on how Lumen Gentium changed everything. Today he shows how the very phrase "subsists in" within that Vatican II document not only separated
the signers and those who embraced all the New Order stands for from their former identity with the Church, but also in the same
exact breath delegated jurisdiction to authentic clerics who function
"outside their confines." It is this latter part which is most crucial
for the life of the Church and is, at the same time, least known or understood by Catholics. Part one merely set up the background for that. The people's "picture" of what is going on needs to change and in this second part Griff reveals how we can know that all of our truly faithful and valid Catholic bishops, all of who but one function "outside the confines" of the new Vatican institution, nevertheless truly DO possess the Apostolic mission and the ecclesiastical authority to go forth teaching all the nations and baptizing them in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, exactly as the Apostles of old. As for the new Vatican institution, it is rapidly becoming all the more and more merely an ecumenical epidermis that may wither.
He explains in Part Two of What is your picture?
Inside The Vatican Staff, headed by editor Robert Moynihan has broken a story that John Paul II has confided he will canonize Pope Pius XII before he dies,"I will not die before I canonize Pope Pius XII." This must come as a shock to most Traditional Catholics who revere Papa Pacelli, but to make him a saint so quickly would not be prudent, especially by the likes of those who have usurped the Sacred Deposit of the Faith which Pius guarded so meticulously even though he realized the enemy had already penetrated within. If this story is true, and we have every reason to believe it is since ITV has been trustworthy in their reports in the past, it shows the enigma that is Karol Wojtyla. On one hand he practically gives the shop away and in another he agitates those very ones he's patronized such as the Jews who, among them, are many anti-Pius XII forces. It also gives credence why Modern Rome would be willing to abandon the stipulation of mandatory miracles to qualify for sainthood since JP2's time is running very short and the only way he can bullheadedly ram through Pius XII's process would be to bypass the necessary third miracle...or fabricate one. Nothing is beyond the deception of newChurch. Not only that, but he could be thinking that after he's gone, without the requirement of a miracle, his own canonization procedure could move along in the fast lane, prompted by the papolators who have already canonized him in their minds. From one who once thought that way, not so fast. Where is the 'Devil's Advocate' when you need him? We have placed this ITV Exclusive within our feature Exspectans exspectavimus for we have long waited with anticipation for Modern Rome to acknowledge Eternal Rome as the God-given sole authority in upholding the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church without compromise.

Transition to Tradition
On the feast of Saint Scholastica, whose very name represents education, we present a countersyllabus to promoting equality in education today by Bishop Richard Williamson. Written on September 1, 2001, when he was Rector of St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary, it might very well infuriate feminists, but what he writes is truly Traditional Catholic teaching and common sense. Once you read his reasonings you'll have to admit he's right even though what he writes goes against the grain of everything the past generations have been taught. It's about time the tide is turned and women repositioned on the pedestal God intended for them in emulating the Blessed Virgin Mary. His words hold even more weight today when we can see the total corruption on campus thanks to the very fact that the balance of nature has been upturned. Why? He explains in his letter The Unwomaning of Woman
Editor Michael Cain offers a glimpse of how so much has disintegrated over the past 40 years and that few actually realize how much has been lost. That is because "they" have sought to erase all memories of the true Faith from the minds and hearts of millions upon millions upon millions, generation after generation. On this day when we are reminded so visibly that we are dust and unto dust we shall return, it is important to realize that we must fight to remember and preserve the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church before we too become victims of the deprogramming experiment wrought by the "principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness: against the spirits of wickedness in high places." It also bears watching considering the concerted effort by the enemies of Jesus to rid America of Christ in the interest of tolerance and diversity. Cain offers three films to realize this fact in his Ash Wednesday Editorial "The Forgotten"
Gabriel Garnica reminds us of a devotion forgotten by many, especially on the day assigned by Pope Pius XII for that day was Shrove Tuesday; a day when most have ignored the liturgy and rejected grace in courting satan's sirens by reveling in the bawdy and tawdry carnival atmosphere of Mardi Gras. With every year the confessional lines grow shorter as they party harder and forget the reason for Shrove Tuesday, trying to attribute that day to anything goes in the mode of 'eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow you may die.' Yeah, right. You may. Are you prepared? That is the whole purpose of Catholicism, the purpose of Ash Wednesday and Lent, the purpose for Devotion to the Holy Face of Jesus. Papa Pacelli had a reason for placing the historical feast of the Holy Face of Jesus on Shrove Tuesday, but so few realize that. Gabriel wants more souls to come to grips with the fact of how much we need His Sacred Face in a Faceless World
Making Sense of Sensus Catholicus
Today we bring you the second part of "A Catholic Pope" by Father James F. Wathen, pioneering traditional author of The Great Sacrilege. On this day of Mardi Gras - Shrove Tuesday - with the emphasis on preparing for Lent by shedding vice, Father Wathen encourages the soul with a celebration of what Catholicism truly is and should always be in application under the guidance of a truly Catholic Pope. In reading through his eleven points of what joy and peace of soul will return when a Catholic Pope once again sits on the Throne of Peter, it is enough to willingly and enthusiastically embrace the sackcloth and ashes of the next 45 days. For though these are dark and terrible times, there is a light at the end of this barren tunnel and Catholicism will have its glorious day in the sun again just as the Son has promised when victory over the revolution will come. It's guaranteed! Father clearly explains in Part Two of his essay sent by Maria Hughes. A Catholic Pope
On the BattleLine
Atila Sinke Guimarăes presents an interesting perspective on why so many Jewish leaders gathered at the end of last month in Rome to pay tribute to John Paul II. Openly they proclaimed what we pointed out last week in how the Jews changed the Catholic Faith. We all know the Catholic Faith cannot be changed. Ergo, what the Jewish leaders influenced was not Catholic, but a hybrid that has posed as 'Catholic' but does not possess the four indelible Marks of the Church. Since only the Catholic Church founded by Christ can and does possess these Marks, and since the church of Vatican II does not have all four Marks, it cannot possibly be the True Church. While John Paul II probably thought the rabbis' praise was all about him, it was really in affirming their superiority over Catholicism and the rejection of Our Lady of the Miracle which resulted in the conversion of one of the most influential Jews and close confidants of the infamous Rothschilds, enablers of Freemasonry. Until Vatican II the Holy See unofficially accepted what the Italians call Madonna del Miracolo and the institution the converted Jew Alphonse Ratisbonne founded - Congregation of Our Lady of Sion. It was specifically established to convert Jews to the True Faith. But with the ecumania of Vatican II all calls for proselytizing the "perfidious Jews" has been halted in the futile effort to please man, not God. Atila points out the "great symbolic outrage to Holy Mother Church" this meeting and Karol Wojtyla's acceptance of the rabbis' authority illustrate. He explains in his latest Bird's Eye View column at his site John Paul II "Blessed" by the Rabbis
Gabriel Garnica exposes the ecumenical picture those in the New Order have tried to develop over the past forty years. With the introduction of a new 'Catholic' all-inclusive bible on the market, one wonders how much has been altered in Holy Writ and how they would twist the infrangible truths such as the parable of the Prodigal Son. Ecumaniacs would have you believe that the Prodigal Son came back on his terms and compromised with his father and also that the other son must be rewarded and treated equally so that everyone is happy. Humanism reigns in the kingdom of Ecumania. Gabriel points out the inevitable pitfalls of the erroneous assumptions made by those embracing the new ecumenism's heresies soundly condemned by Pope Pius XI in Mortalium Animos. Gabriel shows how everything is skewered in the mindset of the mad modernists as he explains in his column Two Prodigal Sons
Hope on the Horizon
Doug Giles spices up the consciences of the shepherds and those who are lukewarm by sprinkling the salt of truth and no-nonsense in the faces of those who don't realize there were no whimps in the bible. No compromises, no endless dialoguing with the devil or tolerating sin. They didn't form committees or worry about political correctness. They lived by the rules and this is what Doug hammers home in his Clashpoint column in shaking things up so that those entrusted with the responsibility of souls will realize Christ meant what He said about those spineless salt-free shepherds being discarded and trampled upon by men, basically leftovers for the devil as Doug reminds all in his column
"Qui legit, intelligat"
In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Quinquagesima Sunday, he stresses the importance of staying the course as he reminds us of today's Epistle in which the Apostle Paul references a mirror in reflecting what is truth and what is a mirage. The truths handed down for nearly 2000 years have been blurred by the flimsy film that covers the mirror into which Novus Ordinarian Catholics glance at today. While they see themselves as doing just fine and good Catholics if they are inclusive and tolerant of their neighbor, regardless of his sins, then they will be garbed in the white garment of grace and attain Heaven with little effort. In truth this mirror, as Holy Mother Church has always taught, is distorted like a circus mirror that doesn't provide a true image of a person's soul. Father points out how the Church has always safeguarded the Sacred Deposit of the Faith in all ages of heresies and today is no different; in fact far worse because of the great numbers who have been deceived. As John Paul II lays in a hospital bed, Father asks what accountability will be demanded, especially in light of the fact he did not take the Papal Oath demanded of every Sovereign Pontiff since St. Agatho. The present pope has been living in an Alice in Wonderland world, out of touch with reality and definitely out of touch with solid doctrine, seeking to establish new thrill rides like "the New Springtime" and the "Globalization Gallop" to hide the fact that it is all a facade and not what is reflected in the mirror of truth. Father concludes with a poem by the great G.K. Chesterton who reminds and remands us all to prepare for battle, to prepare for the worst for it must needs get darker before the Light will shine through. Father explains in his sermon Through the Glass Darkly
While Zenit has provided puff pieces throughout this past week on the events that happened late on the eve of the Purification, the Inside The Vatican Staff has compiled the inside story which magnifies the resistance John Paul II has consistently shown toward common sense and doing what is right. Despite warnings that he should go to the hospital, he stubbornly resisted until it was almost too late. Likewise, despite warnings that the New Order church - which he rules and which is built on the heresies of Vatican II - is imploding and there are no fruits in accordance with Matthew 7: 15-20, because of Matthew 24: 15, he obstinately insists on plunging souls further into the abyss and away from Christ's True Church even, it sadly looks, to the bitter end. But before that fateful moment comes, will Karol Wojtyla heed what the Holy Ghost has been trying to say? Will he also go away just as Our Lord queried the Apostles? Inside The Vatican provides some interesting points.
"Ten Minutes Later, He Would Have Been Gone"
Gabriel Garnica sets the table for this weekend's over-hyped festivities in Jacksonville by presenting a soul-saving perspective of what really is important and how sports has become a religion unto itself. Rather than falling in with all the rest of the mindless minions who will go whichever way the world sways them, Gabriel points out that for all those rooting for the Eagles or the Patriots on Super Bowl Sunday, it's not life and death. Yet, life and death is the issue regarding rooting and supporting the team that rejects ecumenism, modernism and all other isms in order to be true to the Head Coach - Jesus Christ. Hell is for eternal losers, Heaven for loyal winners who paid the price by living as authentic true Catholics in every sense. Naturally, that is what makes it 'Super' as in Supernatural! He explains in his column Religion, Sports and Ecumenism
The Straight Stuff
Griff Ruby presents the first part of "What is your picture" as he retraces the steps leading up to where Modern Rome broke away from Eternal Rome. He illustrates how during the pontificate of John XXIII no one suspected heresy even as it was being formed within the revised schemas of Vatican II. Even during the reign of Paul VI few realized the defection from the Faith when Montini bowed to the demonic UN as the hope of the people, thus forsaking the one source of Hope - Holy Mother Church. In effect, Paul VI was abdicating his authority as head of the only visible institution Christ deigned for salvation, by giving credence to a false entity - basically mammon. Why is it so few realize this? Griff goes into the dangerous precedent set in Lumen Gentium on which hinges the new church of Vatican II - separate from the Roman Catholic Church founded by Christ. He details in Part One of What is your picture?
Making Sense of Sensus Catholicus
We are pleased to be able to share another letter from Father James F. Wathen, pioneering traditional author of The Great Sacrilege. In a follow-up to what we presented last week on How the Jews Changed Catholic Thinking, we present this timely piece by Father Wathen in which he points out that, outside of divine intervention, no one should hold out hope that we will have a truly Catholic Pope coming out of the next Conclave - at least in the near future - for those who are called cardinal - have basically all sold out and apostasized from the True Faith through heresy, jeopardizing their very souls for all eternity. Sadly, the vast majority are so dumbed-down and anesthetized that they cannot see the onrushing flood that will swamp souls, plunging them into hell. Father explains in Part One of his short essay sent by Maria Hughes. A Catholic Pope
Gems from the Past
In honor of the traditional feast of the Purification of Mary when, 40 days after giving birth she presented herself and her Divine Son in the Temple as was the Jewish custom, we bring you a gem from the past in Gabriel Garnica's moving piece on Mary's Magnificat. Gabriel has chosen those nine verses uttered by this most Immaculate of women to her cousin Elizabeth and recorded for all time in Luke 1: 46-55. He magnifies the might of her words as the total fiat of God's holy will in all things and a simple guide for each of us to strive for holiness in this fleeting life. He shows how nothing of the secular or ecclesial New Order can measure up to the simplicity and humility of this wonderful prayer. The Magnificat - Mary's Answer to the New Order
Father Yves le Roux, rector of St. Thomas Seminary for the Society of St. Pius X in Winona, Minnesota, weighs in with a brief meditation on why God allows evil in the world. On the heels of yesterday's Feast of St. John Bosco in which we brought you his frightening, vivid vision of hell, we can apply the 'knives' placed by the traps to free us of the bondage of sin. Father Yves le Roux refers to some of those virtues and points out why God allows evil for good, emphasizing the fact that He will never interfere with man's free will. That's how much He loves us and conversely it is necessary for each of us to make a personal commitment to show how much we love God. Father explains in his letter
