April 2011 (apr2011.htm)

   On this Easter 2011, we want to extend to all our readers a blessed and grace-filled Easter and may you bask in the Mystical Light of our Resurrected Savior and grow stronger in your Faith throughout this time of Paschaltide. Alleluia, alleluia. We provide below the Regina Coeli for this Paschaltide. We need to call upon the Queen of Heaven as often as possible. As the world grows darker and further from God's ordaining will, we assure all that we will continue to provide as much insight and inspiration as possible in helping all learn more about their Faith in order to know what we must all do to preserve and uphold the One True Faith of Apostolic Tradition and pray that more will wake up to the words of St. Paul in 2 Thessalonians 2: 10-11 and realize the conciliar church is the "operation of error" that God has allowed souls "to believe a lie. That all may be judged, who have not believed the truth, but have consented to iniquity." We pray that they will realize this and heed Paul's words in verse 14, to "stand firm; and hold the traditions which you have learned, whether by word, or by our epistle." Like the Magdalene at the empty tomb, may our sadness in this valley of tears be turned to great joy through living our Catholic faith as the infallible, perennial Magisterium has so directed that we might be included in the Resurrection of the body and life everlasting. On behalf of my bride Cyndi, who continues to experience problems with her jaw in post-op and for whom we continue to ask your prayers, all the blessings of this glorious season.
Michael Cain, director, The DailyCatholic

Amen.


Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey completes his special series on Reflections of Salvation History with the Glorious Resurrection. In this special eight-part series on "A Reflection of Salvation History," first introduced to our readers back in 2003, and brought to you to enhance your contemplation for this holy season, Tom has taken us indeed from Eden to the empty tomb. He points out that, despite the hardships, the sacrifices, the insults, the scourging, the stripping, the nailing and hanging on the wood of the Cross, Christ proved for all time that it was worth it. Is it worth it to us? By our actions and fidelity to His teachings passed down through His Holy Church and carried out in the Sacraments, especially Baptism, Penance and the Holy Eucharist, we illustrate if we think so. If we are His loyal lambs, Christ the Lamb of God has guaranteed He will be loyal to us at our Particular Judgment. Nothing else matters for salvation is at stake. Alleluia. Tom explains in his seventh and final installment of his Holy Week series From Eden to the Empty Tomb The Resurrection


Through the kind assistance of John Gregory, we are able to provide our readers with the Haydock Commentaries for the Epistle and Gospel for the Solemnity of the Resurrection of the Lord to complement the Propers of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. In Father George Leo Haydock's commentaries on the Douay-Rheims version of the New Testament for Easter Sunday As St. Paul asserts in one of the shortest epistles of the year, the old leaven, meaning the Old Testament, has been fulfilled. The old rites have been superseded by the new rite instituted by the Son of man on Maundy Thursday. Through the new unleavened Bread we receive the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ our Lord and become heirs of the kingdom of Heaven, Jew and Gentile alike who abide in Him and all He has taught through His One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. Reason indeed to exclaim with great jubilation: Alleluia, alleluia for indeed it is time to The Rising of the Unleavened Bread


   With this Easter Week issue we resume with the soul-searching life-changing words imparted to St. Bridget of Sweden by our Lord and His Blessed Mother. It is also important to realize that to "Fight 4 Your Faith" you need to understand the consequences if you don't. Through these revelations to St. Bridget we see clearer than ever the mind of God and what we need to do to not only assure our own salvation, but win souls for Him in sharing Heaven. As the world grows darker, we seek to provide readers the Light in how to apply It to our own lives so that we can truly live in and love Him alone. We begin Book Three with chapter one in which Our Lady issues the guideline of warnings and instructions to the bishop about how to eat and dress and pray, and about how he should behave before meals, at meals, and after meals, and likewise his sleep and how he should carry out the office of bishop always and everywhere. For he is a shepherd of souls and will be held to a higher account the higher he rises as we see in Book Three, Chapter One: A Bishop's Daily Duty


During this Easter Week we celebrate the feast of the holy Doctor of the Church St. Peter Canisius. This Dutch-born Jesuit priest played a key role in the landmark dogmatic and canonical Council of Trent and in debating the Protestant heresies while whirling through his native Netherlands and Germany, Austria, Bohemia and Poland. He was a great eloquent preacher sought by prince and pauper alike. He served as mediator between Holy Roman Emperors and Popes. He also founded the University of Fribourg in 1580. One of his most famous works was "Manuel of Catholics" and he is referred to as the "Second Apostle of Germany," giving way only to the great Saint Boniface as the "First Apostle of Germany." Because of his efforts, the counter-reformation was a resounding success in Bavaria. He was truly the Windmill of Wisdom.

With Lent here what better time to deal with the subject of death and the greatest consolation of grace a Catholic can receive with the Last Sacrament, the Sacrament of Extreme Unction which has been so twisted by the modern conciliar church that it barely resembles, if at all, the true purpose and immense benefits that are accrued by receiving this Last Sacrament before meeting our Maker at our Particular Judgment. As St. Paul said, "Death, where is thy sting?" and indeed, when one is back in the state of Sanctifying Grace and ready to die the fear of death melts away. There is so much consolation in that and yet, the conciliar newchurch has seen fit to eliminate this with a hybrid version called 'sacrament' of the Sick which is stripped of so much, including being a valid sacrament. When it's a question of dying, one wants to be sure they're receiving the real thing because one's eternal life is at stake. That is why we believe the best subject to cover on this Shrove Tuesday is to deal with the first of the Four Last Things: Death and why how we prepare for that goes a long way on how the other three Last Things go as we address Death and the Last Sacrament of Extreme Unction


Lent is not only for prayer, penance, almsgiving and self-mortification, but also to share our holy Faith in all its fullness with others. Yes, call it proselytization or evangelization if you will, that's what the Apostles, Fathers, Saints, Doctors and true Popes always called it because Christ said just that in the Gospel of St. Mark and St. Matthew to go into the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. After a hiatus of nearly 100 issues, Griff Ruby returns to reinforce that the tenets on which Jesus built His one, true and only Church upon the Rock of Peter and the very truths handed down through the evangelic traditions are found in every Catechism, a compilation of the truths and traditions we must follow and passed down and approved by the infallible, perennial Magisterium of the Church. If we are to proselytze the holy Faith especially to those who have been dumbed down by VaticanTwo-speak, they need to understand the uncompromising truths of the Catechism that all were taught before the Apostasy, words which leave no room for innovation, novelty or placating man, but rather fulfilling God's holy Will. If we cling to Catholic truth, we might wake up a few asleep in their Novus Ordo community comfort zones. Converting Catholics to true Catholicism. If we can do that, we can say we really accomplished something during Lent as Griff conveys what we should look for and accept no substitues by Just Following The Catechism.


With Lent just two days away, the venerable Benedictine Abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger presents a reflection asking us to consider that if man's path to Heaven on earth entails sacrifice, will we respond to God's grace? He reminds us that one cannot avoid sin if one does not practice virtue to stay the hand of the devil who goes about like a roaring lion and without the armor of God and we must use our Lent as a spiritual bootcamp to withstand the enemy as he explains in his reflection for Quinquagesima Monday


Through the kind assistance of John Gregory, we are able to provide our readers with the Haydock Commentaries for the Epistle and Gospel for Quinquagesima Sunday to complement the Propers of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. In Father George Leo Haydock's commentaries on the Douay-Rheims version of the New Testament for Quinquagesima Sunday he deals with both charity and faith. The epistle focuses on St. Paul's words to the Corinthians that works without charity, true charity rooted in love of God, is empty as "a tinkling cymbal." It was charity that prompted Our Lord to recognize the blind man when the crowd and authorities sought to be uncharitable in preventing him from "disturbing" the Master. But the man's faith drove him to persevere and it was such that touched Jesus to heal Him for he knew the hearts of all men and knew the faith of the blind man who saw better than all the rest in the crowd. Haydock Commentary for Quinquagesima Sunday


The venerable Benedictine Abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger presents a reflection for Sexagesima Sunday in which he reminds us that the seed of Faith which God has planted in us can only grow if we nourish it for a hardened heart will not be able to sustain the thorns that will choke out God's love and His graces. God does not stifle this, man does. By not assuring that our love and faith grow, we are letting God down for as the divine Sower He expects a great harvest and if our field is barren, then we will have to make an account for what we have yielded at our Particular Judgment. On the other hand, if we have tended our heart with care as He directs, it will yield one-hundred fold fruits as the Abbot explains in his reflection for Quinquagesima Sunday


One month ago Dr. Marian Therese Horvat was on pilgrimage to Quito, Ecuador for the 400th Anniversary of the dedication of the beautiful statue of Our Lady of Good Success commemorating her appearances to the visionary Maria de Jesus Torres in which the Mother of God imparted messages that pertain much more to our time than any time ever. Marian has recently published some installments for an accounting of her trip and the amazing transformation of the statue that she witnessed leading up to the feast on February 2 on the feast of the Purification of Mary and the traditional feast of Our Lady of Good Success. What better day to bring this to you than on the First Saturday of the following month for what Mary asked at Fatima was merely a fulfillment of what she asked at Quito.


March 4 this year is both First Friday and the feast of the holy confessor, king and patron of Poland St. Casimir and during this penitential season we want to resume highlighting, when we can, one word from the Proper of the day's Mass that carries significance. Taking the Latin Verbum and Quotidianum, which mean respectively "Word" and "Daily", we we have coined the word "Verbumquo" by contracting quotidianum to quo and running it together as VerbumQUO for this feature series, thus "The Daily Word," as in the sum of the message, the 'quotient', if you will. Like the noble ruler of France St.Louis IX, St. Casimir shared his wealth and stood strong against the heretics, clinging to the Truths and Traditions handed down, adhering to all holy Mother Church taught. That is true stability or strength. This virtue is exclaimed in today's Collect for the Mass for St. Casimir.


With Lent just around the corner, what better time to remind all true Catholics of their obligation for works of mercy? One of the requests by holy Mother Church during Lent is to place an emphasis on almsgiving in which one gives of their riches to share with others, not out of a socialistic mindset, but rathere out of a scriptural reason to love our neighbor because of our love for God. We are cautioned to be prudent in giving to government or political organizations, unions and expensively organized 'charities' that employ thousands and we cannot be sure our donations will go for the cause for which we wanted to give. That is why, especially within the traditional movement, we remember our own, and give what we can to do our part in perpetuating the holy Faith as it was always taught from the time of Christ through the death of the last true Pope on October 9, 1958. If the Faith is important to you, you, too, will realize how important almsgiving is during Lent and ask yourself what you can do to strengthen that Faith by giving to your chapel, your true priests and bishops and to publications who do not compromise one iota with the counterfeit church of conciliarism. If you do not, someday all of these that you might take for granite could be gone and then what would you have? Look at the world today and ask yourself if you can afford to be tight with the riches God bestowed on you. Obligation to Do Works


For Thursday in Sexagesima Week, Dom Prosper Gueranger reminds us of history and never has this been more pertinent than this very year where throughout the Muslim world we are seeing more hate being stirred for insurrection and taking over America by establishing Shariah Law. Why has it come to this? Look at what has happened to our beloved holy Mother Church over the past 50 years and how that coincided with the total collapse of morals and ethics in the U.S. and the world and we're ripe for the same fate as the Jews, the Romans, and those throughout the annals who turned away from God. The Abbot puts it in perspective for for Sexagesima Thursday


In his short reflection prayer for the mid point of Sexagesima week, the venerable Abbe Dom Prosper Gueranger reminds us that just as God took just so much before saying 'enough!' so also in our time we must realize there are limits to His Mercy and if we do not obey His divine Laws then we must be aware that His infinite Mercy will be replaced by His infinite Justice and if those persist in sin they will feel the wrath of His Justice. All the more reason to fast and do penance and turn our attention fully to His divine Will as Dom Prosper urges for Sexagesima Wednesday


Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey points to the barren springtime promised by Vatican II and its apparatchiks. Instead, we have nothing as the world becomes a boiling cauldron day by day. What does it all boil down to? Tom tells us: "We are eyewitnesses to the effects that the Protestant Revolution and Modernity have done to men and their nations. We are eyewitnesses of a spirit of apostasy and betrayal from men who consider themselves to be the officials of the Catholic Church that is breathtakingly staggering in its boldness and its scope. We must intensify our own acts of reparation to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, especially by praying as many Rosaries each day as our state-in-life permits." No better advice we could take as we prepare for the time of Lent. Socialized Nihilism

    • PAPAL PROOF OF WHAT THE CHURCH TRULY TEACHES
        For those who truly want to delve deeper into what the Faith teaches and what past Sovereign Pontiffs have decreed, we recommend for your vital reading to better KNOW THE FAITH in order to KEEP THE FAITH, pertinent Papal decrees which put to the lie what is being promulgated today by the Vatican II church. We strongly encourage you to read these to understand how today the modern church is in Apostasy when compared to what had always been taught by Holy Mother Church and enforced and warned as most grievous by previous Pontiffs as you'll see in CREDO & CULTURE
