With Holy Week upon us, editor Michael Cain completes his series on the analogy of the Sorrowful Mysteries and the Mystical Body of Christ with the Carrying of the Cross. Cain provides answers as to how can we sort out all that has happened over the past 50 years? How can we not equate the Crucifixion of the Mystical Body of Christ to the Apostasy and Schism of Modernist Rome? We have the evidence from Divine Revelation as well as reaffirmation from Heaven to reliable saints, popes and the Mother of God herself, who invites us to stand with her divine Son and His Church during these dark hours before the resplendent radiance of the resurrection. The journey has taken us to the final hours when almost all have abandoned Christ and His faithful ones. Calvary is a journey all faithful Catholics take every Lent leading up through Passiontide to Holy Week and Good Friday. There can be no victory without the cross and that is what we must all embrace, even moreso in our day than ever before. Are we really ready to not only embrace the tree of the cross, but also be nailed to Christ on it? If not, we are barking up the wrong tree - a bad tree, one that will be chopped down and cast into the eternal fire. It's truth time for all faithful Catholics to uphold what Cain terms, The Code of Faithful Souljourners

Editor Michael Cain reprises an article written several years ago but key in Passiontide Week for impressing on readers the importance of the Feast of the Seven Sorrows in Friday of Passion Week. That especially holds true this year in how the three feasts intricately involving Our Lady fall in line. A week before the holy Triduum we have the precursor to that with the trilogy of feasts. The former could not have been possible without the cooperation of what we acknowledge in the feast of St. Gabriel on Wednesday, the Annunciation on Thursday and commemoration of the Seven Dolors on Friday. Cain takes the reader on a journey through Mary's life on earth, identifying each sword mystically piercing Her Immaculate and Sorrowful Heart. He poses the question: Why is Our Lady so sorrowful? Because She is a Mother and She continues to weep because so many do not believe, do not adore, do not trust and do not love her Divine Son. Wouldn't you weep too? Cain illustrates how Our Lady was so perfectly in sync with the divine Will that without this cooperation many souls might be even more lost considering the ravaging perpetuated by her divine Son's demonic adversary in these trying, troublesome times. We need to heed her strong motherly advice, meld our sorrows with hers and do as she asks, take our cares, concerns, anxieties, worries and woes and lay them at the foot of the Cross to be washed in His Most Precious, Cleansing Blood at every true Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Cain explains in his reflective essay Mater Dolorosa

John Gregory provides inspiration to better understand the first Joyful Mystery. What greater joy can there be than to be told by a heavenly messenger of the highest order - St. Gabriel the Archangel - that the Almighty Father has created you for all time for this moment? chosen the Holy Ghost as your divine Spouse? and selected you, among zillions of souls, to be the mother of His only-begotten Son? This great Mystery is cause for unending joy and if there ever was a sanctification of motherhood it was in Mary's fiat that she would accept - "be it done unto me according to Thy will" - and through the full cooperation of her Immaculate and Sorrowful Heart, paved the way for God's children to gain Heaven through this living and most pure Ark of the Covenant. John provides a meditative essay during Passion Week to contemplate during the joyous feasts of St. Gabriel and the Annunciation before we turn our full focus on the dolorous passion with Friday's Feast of the the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary. He provides reflections in The First Joyful Mystery: The Annunciation

Editor Michael Cain nears the completion of his series on the analogy of the Sorrowful Mysteries and the Mystical Body of Christ with the Carrying of the Cross. On this Ides of March, we echo the warning given to Julius Caesar. He did not heed it. Will you also fail to recognize the danger? The Roman soldiers, in deference to politics and their fear of a Jewish uprising, were merely carrying out their cruel duty in escorting Christ to Calvary. The Roman antipopes, in deference to diversity and tolerance, are also carrying out their cruel duty in escorting souls away from Christ in their attempt to avoid suffering and sacrifice and adapt to a world in chaos by planting an alien avatar posing as Catholic. Oh, but they are clever and have so infiltrated hearts and minds that most are blind to the fact that they have abandoned the path to Heaven which must lead through the Via Dolorosa. Though our Lord is so battered and beaten and practically unrecognizable, just as the true Mystical Body is unrecognizable to so many today, we can take comfort in knowing Christ has not abandoned His Church. Cain explains with part four, Beware of the Anathematized Alien Avatar

With things finally falling apart for the counterfeit church of conciliarism, we must rejoice for the sake of souls and pray that those guilty will repent and hie themselves to a monastery to make reparation for the rest of their lives. While Traditio provides the headlines and a short explanation of the terrible scandals in the conciliar church, Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey provides the depths in delving into the reasons why the counterfeit church of conciliarism is of satan, a bad tree destined for the eternal fire. The leaks in the wall of silence are about to break wide open and flood the truth onto the scene, sinking Ratzinger and hopefully bringing down the entire false church with damning evidence that he knew and not only showed no concern about the raping of the faithful body and soul, but was a chief manipulator of the cover-up as Tom reveals in Blind to Truth, Blind to the Horror of Personal Sin and Waterloo For Benedict?

In honor of Saint Patrick's Day, we present, as an annual tradition, the special diary of Saint Patrick himself, written by the saint. It delves into his mindset and heart and reveals the pure holiness of this great man who brought Catholicism to a pagan island in the 5th Century. It details the hardships and obstacles he encountered and how, through his immense love for the Triune Divinity and the True Faith, he persevered, even to being rebuked by his superiors, even when a normal person would abandon all hope of converting these stubborn people of Eire. That is what separates common men from saints and this humble confession by the Patron Saint of Ireland. Translated from his own Latin, it is a testimony to his sanctity. Through the natural - the shamrock - he was able to explain the Supernatural. Truly a testament to the sanity of sanctity. Since the 5th Century the emerald isle has remained one of the staunchest bastions of the Roman Catholic Faith in the world. He would weep today at how it has deteriorated over the past 45 years with the cancer of Vatican II that has so ravaged every parish, parishes that produced so many priests who populated the clergy in America in the 40's and 50's but, thanks to the drying up of the True Faith, that constant stream of vocations has slowed to barely a trickle. Nevertheless, we pray that the holy Patrick's diary might be a spark that will once again ignite the chaste fire of a true vocation in someone's heart and soul as we present Conversion of Souls in the Apostle of Ireland's Own Words

The Sanity of Sanctity
On the day which Holy Mother Church has designated as a Double of the First Class Feast, the highest classification possible, it is dedicated to the the saint who enabled the Blessed Mother to fulfill her fiat and raised the Son of Man in the virtuous life. It was the quiet and holy Joseph who helped his foster Son Jesus Christ prepare for His mission on earth. Look at the innocent child in the massive arms of good St. Joseph and we see how love overflowed in the home of the Holy Family. Editor Michael Cain reprises an article he wrote seven years ago, updating it slighty, to honor this gentle giant of our Faith; a saint who serves as the ultimate role model for all men just as his earthly spouse the Blessed Virgin Mary is the ideal mentor for all women. Their intercession is the greatest in Heaven and too few call upon good St. Joseph, who molded and taught the Son of God in all things human. Indeed, of all his many titles, few realize he is also The Silent Assassin

Editor Michael Cain continues his series on the analogy of the Sorrowful Mysteries and the Mystical Body of Christ. At the Crowning with thorns, Christ's persecutors mocked Him by placing a crown of cruel thorns on His precious head. For over 50 years, as Archbishop Lefebvre titled his book, 'They Have Uncrowned Him', the conciliar church has aided the enemy. Let us count the ways: "The New 'Mass' is the Real Destruction of the Roman Rite!" Those are not our words, but rather none other than Fr. Joseph Ratzinger well before he became Benedict XVI. Indeed, after you have read this important, revealing commentary if you still cling to the Novus Ordo - no matter how comfortable you may have become with this pseudo, sacrilegious and scandalous ritual and the concessions of BeneRatz who is a died-in-the-wool Modernist - then you will have to face yourself in the mirror and realize you are no longer truly Catholic! You have been thoroughly Protestantized because you truly do not know your Faith! Cain explains the reality of that with part three, A Thorny Problem that Needs to be Resolved

Though this year the Feast of St. Thomas Aquinas is not celebrated because it falls on the Third Sunday of Lent, John Gregory hopes that is not a sign of the trend away from the holy Doctor of the Church. With every passing year one hears less of the Angelic Doctor and more of those he warned against: heretics and n'er-do-wells out to undermine all he accomplished for souls. One of the greatest strategies by the enemies of holy Mother Church was to diminish and eventually overcome the steady influence of the Angelic Doctor. If the robber barons could eliminate the logic of the Summa Theologica and the embedded Thomistic tradition, then they could reshape minds and fully infiltrate the Church in order to destroy her. This might sound bizarre unless you realize one Fr. Joseph Ratzinger is a died-in-the-wool anti-Aquin who prefers Georg Hegel to the most prolific Doctor of the Church, praised by Popes and Church theologians. Who's the dumb ox here? With all the uproar about education today, the soundest direction, especially in lieu of the obvious misdirection and countless errors of the progressives, is a return to the fail-safe logic of Thomistic thinking. John presents sage words from Dom Gueranger, Pope Leo XIII and Gabriel Garnica on the might and magnificence of the holy Dominican Thomas Aquinas. John asks O, Thomas, where art thou? .

Griff continues his series on refuting the SSPX book with his seventh installment Griff exposes the hypocritical hypothesis posed by the SSPX writers. In fact this could easily have been placed in Griff's other series "The Art of Scholastic Dishonesty" because the twisting of Pope Paul IV's infallible bull Cum Ex Apostolatus Officio denies the real purpose of the decree and why it still stands as one of the strongest arguments for proving that heretics cannot possibly be true popes, even if mistakenly recognized as pope by the whole Church. Yet, it is the Society of St. Piux X itself that has stumbled all over itself in staving off the inevitable syllogism of sedevacantism because they are afraid to go where Paul IV and the holy Cardinal St. Robert Bellarmine and the infallible, perennial Magisterium of the Church dared to venture in voiding the possibility that a heretic could be a pope. Griff rounds it out in part seven, Learning Curve, Interrupted.

Modernist whips, fashioned and twisted into place at Vatican II, lash at the Mystical Body with unrelenting force in the sabotage of souls. Editor Michael Cain illustrates this fifty-year flagellation as he continues a series on the analogy of the Mystical Body of Christ with the Sorrowful Mysteries. The Scourging at the Pillar is the focus in this second installment, redacted and updated from the past, as he demonstrates how it correlates with the Second Vatican Council where the lashes of progressive reform and compromise were seditiously snapped with a fury - every year a spur stinging deeper - as more scourgers have grown immune to the horror and have gathered around the Pillar. In so doing, they have proceeded to further decimate the Mystical Body unmercifully with the whips of worldliness. Though they have tried to excuse and extemporize the flagellation as nothing more than a few flesh wounds, it truly has gone much deeper as the precious Blood sorrowfully and scandalously has blanketed the secular stone floor of every ism and vice possible as Cain explains with part two, The Kind of Rot that Smells to High Heaven

The preface of heretical beliefs can begin when one opens his mouth, leaving the fortresses of faith and fact vulnerable to one's own whims and satan's pass to souls! The drawbridge of drivel is the opening the beast is looking for. In a column that ran on March 20, 2000, Pat Ludwa traced the cause of much of the dissent in the world and Modern Rome to three dangerous words that can preface heresy after heresy: "Well, I think..." Those three words open the drawbridge around fortresses of faith and fact to allow doubters, rationalizers and unbelievers to storm the ramparts of reason and launch the flaming arrows of presumption and political correctness that weaken the strong bastions of hallowed traditions. Whereas the true Church discerns Sacred Scripture through the guidance of wise, holy saints, Fathers and Doctors of the Church inspired by the Holy Ghost, Protestants and, recently, dissatisfied Catholics as well as those in the highest echelons of the conciliar Vatican, resort to their own interpretations which open and leave vulnerable a phalanx of faults by letting down their guard with those three words. For his column see, Three very dangerous words.

This was the very first article of Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey that ran on The DailyCatholic way back on March 2, 2001. It was, as Humphrey Bogart said in Casablanca, "the start of a beautiful relationship" that continues stronger today as we have followed the same syllogism from conciliarism to sedevacantism. It was already evident in Tom's piece on the usual suspects. Though some of the names have changed, the principle ones remain rooted and sated in sin in ruining ever more souls with no discipline to rein them in. But then when the wolf is in charge, what do you expect? In lieu of the recent insincere apology of Tiger Woods and a bevy of other trite apologies by those who have gotten caught, the offenders will try to recoup their prestige with no compassion for those they have grievously wounded for temporal riches trump supernatural riches to these pharisees of the cloth. As Tom points out the blood money trail is not trivial, and we can only happen that it will lead to trial and conviction of the guilty. Blood Money Talks

While he was still rector of St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary in Winona, Minnesota the controversial prelate of the Society of St. Pius X filed this letter eight years ago which we ran in the March 6th issue in which Bishop Richard Williamson lamented the fall of the Campos Traditionalists in a candid comment about the agreement between Modern Rome and the Priestly Fraternity of Saint John Marie Vianney and the sell-out by Bishop Rifan. Bishop Williamson pointed out the repercussions they will eventually face in compromising principle and Catholic truth for the 'privilege' of being recognized by Modern Rome and agreeing to a cease fire in asserting the Truths and Traditions that were suppressed by the reforms of Vatican II. While on the surface to many within the Society reunion with Rome might seem idyllic, in truth it is a surrender, a betrayal of the man who fought so hard and long to preserve the True Faith in Campos - Bishop Castro de Mayer - as Bishop Williamson explained. History has a way of repeating itself and we wonder if he and his SSPX cohorts in purple realize that for Fellay's actions today mirror Campos. Campos Has Fallen!

Dr. Frank Joseph, a Catholic physician and long one of the leading crusaders for the Sanctity of Life, has kept his pulse on the political landscape for decades, identifying the landmines that threaten the life of Christ's most innocent ones - the unborn. While we have learned to realize that the Democratic Party is not going to change, what riles Dr. Frank - and should every other Catholic as well - are the fact that the conciliar potentates are in lockstep with the Democrats. Shocking and sad. The fact that the conciliar clergy are gunshy to the truths of Holy Mother Church, refuse to speak in absolutes, and mete out the just punishments that would not only save thousands of the innocent unborn, but millions of souls, should be enough to raise the outrage of all Catholics...if, that is, they are still truly Catholic! By following the insanity of the Masonic bishops cited in Dr. Frank's column, one has to realize they are not Catholic, but anathema! Dr. Frank documented this seven years ago in his piece If These Men are Actual Shepherds, Pity the Poor Sheep!

We bring you one we caught six years ago in which Catharine Lamb had to chuckle, yet shed a tear of sadness for the enterprising New Order conciliar capitalists who stage Fish Fries every Friday during Lent. On the surface it might be a laudable idea to help a person avoid the temptation of eating meat, a definite no-no every Friday of the year in the True Catholic Church. But no, one look at the sign at the local Novus Ordo, made to order for those who have no concept of what fasting really means, says it all: ALL YOU CAN EAT! Go ahead and stuff yourselves she quipped for those in the Vatican II church have no concept of what Lent really means or the purpose of self-sacrifice. It is not to lose weight; not to stop certain cravings while taking up other cravings which could be even worse, but to focus on our own vulnerabilities and that without God we are nothing. It is only by heeding what Holy Mother Church in her wisdom has passed down, especially from St. Thomas Aquinas' inspired words and Sacred Scripture and focusing on the why of Lent that we can understand the why of the Passion and Death of Christ. Contrary to the Novus Ordinarians who dismiss Traditional practices as old-fashioned and out of touch, what Catherine shared was no wild "fishy tale," but a "fish story" for the ages in the footsteps of the true fishers of men. The New Lent: Another Dud

Timothy Duff has taught Traditional Catholicism for decades. The author of the work The Church is not above Christ, Tim has chosen Fiat Voluntas Dei - "The Will of God be done" as the title for his columns which will now become a regular rotating staple in The Daily Catholic. He is also a consummate expert on Venerable Mary Agreda's masterful work Mystical City of God and ties that in so beautifully with the healing effect of sincere tears, shed by Jesus and His Blessed Mother for us and for the way we have prompted those tears through our sins. To illustrate how powerful tears can be, who can ever forget the magnificent and poignant scene in Mel Gibson's The Passion of The Christ when, at the moment of Christ's death on the cross, we see as through a fish-eye lens the surreal scene from above and only then realize as the watery lens plunges downward that we are inside the tear of the Heavenly Father as it projects closer to earth, splashing upon the ground at the foot of the cross and from Calvary the tsunami effect causes the earth to shake and the temple floor in Jerusalem to be torn in two, symbolizing the end of the Jewish religion and the Old Covenant and the beginning of the New Covenant as God's chosen means for salvation. Yes, tears are powerful as Tim details in his column Holy Tears

Four years ago John Gregory addressed those who try to rationalize the credibility of the modernist conciliar antipopes by pointing out inherent heresy that has, for some reason or another, slipped under the radar of both intellectuals and the common man, much to their own spiritual detriment. What is it with the Modernists of Vatican II that they want to cling to the Old Testament and deny Christ's teachings and what His holy Church believes? No matter what you want to call them, no matter that they occupy our Catholic edifices, wear Catholic garments, or are considered by the world as Catholic spokesmen from Rome to Rio de Janeiro to the Rhine and back, one thing is manifestly clear: They are not Catholic!!! John Gregory documented that in his March 9th article in 2006 through a few "experts" in the matter: The Evangelists, St. Paul, and the Source of Truth - Jesus Christ Himself. John laid it out in his column The Old Covenant and New Popes

Three years ago guest columnist Scott Montgomery presented an interesting essay on the existence of the two holy prophets from the Old Covenant who God preserved from death until the appointed time when the final antichrist comes. It is something few modernists will give credence too and, combined with the evangelical pentecostal heresies that have permeated society over this past century, the role of the two prophets Enoch and Elijah (Elias) play a significant role in eschatological theology. It is therefore appropriate that we bring this to you on this Second Sunday of Lent when we focus on the Transfiguration and the miracles of the Almighty with the appearance of Moses and Elias at Christ's side. Holy Mother Church has already spoken of Elias just this past Ember Wednesday in the Epistle from 3 Kings 19. On that same day we read in the Lesson from Exodus 24 of Moses going up to Sinai where he remained for forty days and forty nights. We also know that Moses eventually died after being denied by the Lord to enter the Promised Land; but not so the other witness of the Transfiguration: Elias, also known as Elijah the Tishbite and the man of Mt. Carmel. Elijah is one of the two witnesses in Sacred Scripture - the other being Enoch from Genesis - whom the Fathers and Doctors of the Church discern from the holy Scriptures to still be alive in a time and place finite man cannot reach or comprehend for man cannot know the breadth and depth of the mind of God. Yes, these two prophets of old wait quite possibly in the very same paradise where Adam and Eve began, sustained by the fruits of the garden until that appointed time when antichrist comes and they will be beckoned forth as God's special force to deal directly with the devil on God's terms. Scott lays out the evidence in his treatise The Two Witnesses

With the temporal success of Avatar, we wanted to bring you the other side of James Cameron which Gabriel Garnica did in reminding all who have become complacent. Be alert for here we go again! The Lenten Season seems to annually bring Christ-haters out of the woodwork in trying to foist on the faithful lies and deceits that are so uncredible that they replicate the very demons that were driven out of the possessed man into a herd of swine which Christ refers to in St. Matthew 8: 30-31. What those perpetrating the lies and deception fail to realize is what happened to those swine. They rushed headlong over the cliff into the abyss. Gabriel wonders if the infamous James Cameron is listening or is he charging pell-mell toward the edge? One would think that's the case considering his vile and blasphemous hoax he is perpetrating on the public with his totally discredited revisionist version called The Lost Tomb of Jesus, thereby trying to cast doubt on lukewarm souls who are prey for such lies because they have not built their faith on solid ground. Gabriel exposes the dark side of Cameron's agenda in his column Cameron's Canard: The so-called "King of the World" Takes On The King of the Universe in a Titanic Disaster

Any gardner worth their salt knows you must tend to the garden with care in order to harvest good fruit and take great care not to bruise the fruit. So also with souls in praying for the grace to ripen their hearts and utilizing the best way of discernment in separating the true wheat from the conciliar chaff in order to save as many souls as possible from the fire. Griff Ruby filed an interesting scenario of the proper way to intiate encouragement toward those conciliar presbyters who want to do right by holy Mother Church but have been hindered by lack of courage or intimidation or ignorance of what Catholicism truly is. Griff filed a few theoretical letters that are plausible in planting the seeds of hope. Griff pointed out in these speculative correspondences how it is so vital to sift the wheat from the chaff amongst traditional-leaning 'priests' ordained in the invalid Novus Ordo rite, that the proper traditional chain of command be observed in order for true shepherds to discern whether these 'priests', who would express an interest, are sincere or Trojan Horses ready to sabotage. And those clearly desiring to serve the Church and provide true spiritual guidance and sacraments for their appointed flocks must be given every possible chance to redeem themselves. But careful scrutiny and trust in the Holy Ghost will ferret out the "Twinkie-toes" if the proper impetus is given in doing all we can to help rescue souls from the counterfeit church of conciliarism. Griff posed the possibilities in his piece, A Grave Risk
