Lent 2009 (lent2009.htm)

Editor Michael Cain challenges all in the "resist and recognize" camp to fish or cut bait. There is no other way to put it. We can no longer agree to disagree while allowing countless souls to be ever more confused. We have to account to God for our actions and inactions and by doing nothing we are contributing to the malaise so prevalent among Catholics and how the world sees the Church today. Always the Church has been at odds with the world, yet the latter always held a healthy respect for the integrity of the Church and her hierarchy. That is not the case today where She is ridiculed and held to account for herself against the "dogmas of Vatican II." Ridiculous, yes, and why it is vital that we separate the wheat from the chaff, informing the world that the conciliar church and its operatives from Benedict XVI on down are not Catholic and cannot be Catholic. Only then will souls begin to understand why and realize Vatican II was not Catholic either. Only then will the world realize the visible Church in Rome hasn't been Catholic since October 9, 1958. Only then will they join the cry to bring back the truths and traditions that sustained the mighty Rock for nearly two millennia. Only then will the world realize that the true Catholic Church answers to no one but God, Who alone She seeks to please by fulfilling His holy will. That's not happening under the regime of the current pretender in Rome. It's time for all to admit that, especially the authors of We Resist You to The Face. It's time to resist the "resist and recognize" camp to their face


Griff Ruby continues his intermission series with part two in which he asks is the Liberalism of Vatican II rooted in BOB and BOD? This whole subject is an issue few, if any others, have broached, let alone challenged, leaving the Feeneyites to assume silence was consent. But the zealous followers of Fr. Leonard Feeney, S.J. have used the cover of Vatican II to form camps that would never have been considered in pre-Vatican II days. In fact, it was prior to such when a true Pope sat upon the Throne of Peter that holy Mother Church spoke out against denial of Baptism of Blood and Baptism of Desire. Thus came about the term of "Feeneyism." In Boston, while Fr. Feeney was making the headlines, a seminarian at Weston, Francis Sullivan, began pondering a reasoned response. Following the Modernists, he eventually found a basis in Lumen Gentium to, in effect, do away with the dogma Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus and make "armchair evangelism" (of saving practically everyone without having to make them Catholic) far easier than it ever was in Fr. Feeney’s heyday. In refuting the Vatican II sophistry, so clearly explained by Fr. Sullivan in his rejection of Catholic truth, Griff presents his second installment in his interlude between rounds with The Slippery Slope to Sophistry


In the Epistle for the Fifth Sunday after Easter, St. James reinforces in his words the fact that sincerity is vital for God knows man's heart. Though man may preen as if looking in a mirror, only the penitent man who heeds God's law and will shall not fear. In other words, as great as the Corporal Works of Mercy might be, they are hollow if the Spiritual Works of Mercy are not applied. To work out one's salvation in fear and trembling, one cannot be passive, but rather active for the good of souls as God so wills. It is a symptom, unfortunately, of the conciliar mindset that places humanistic "common good" above God's good today, and by so doing, abdicates all responsibility to rein in souls who have been led to believe their sinful actions and neglect of God's Laws have no consequences. In St. John's Gospel, he documents how Our Lord reaffirms His divinity in His discourse with His apostles in reminding them that He must return to the Father Who sent Him. But He encourages them that they shall know great joy and anything they ask of the Father in Christ's name, it will be granted. Quite a promise that has been fulfilled ever since to all who comply with all He asks. Unfortunately, few ask or obey anymore.

Editor Michael Cain weighs in with his first editorial in some while. He points out that with every passing day we are heading closer to George Orwell's "1984" and "Animal Farm" and Monsignor Robert Hugh Benson's "Lord of the World" because Modernists now rule in striving to form a One World Religion where socialism has saturated the world. It is inevitable that Catholicism, as the world knows it, will be relegated to just "one of the boys" as will America in a One World Order where our country will become North America incorporating Canada and Mexico into one nifty NAFTA nest utilizing a new currency called the Amero that will equate with the Euro. Society as we know it is a thing of the past. It is playing out today in Rome, D.C., Jerusalem, and in South Bend just to name a few of the battlefields in which the enemy is gloating. We have earned this exile and punishment because of our sins, because we did not stand with Christ but gave way to the angry mob. Why? Because we did not take the time to fully know our Faith! Cain explains in his commentary Truth is stranger than fiction


Having taken twelve lengthy, comprehensive and convincing chapters to most definitely refute the grave error, nay, even heresy, of Feeneyism, Griff Ruby takes an intermission - not time off, mind you, but an interlude, if you will - to take the reader a bit behind the scenes, exploring events leading up to his making this series, and the balancing considerations that weigh against the "Sr. Sunshine's" of the world. Thus, during this lull after Easter, when Griff has reached the midway point of his mega-series "The Art of Scholastic Dishonesty," he begins the first of a three-parter in dealing with several topics in a potpourri fashion, commencing with chronicling how this series was developed and why. From its beginning in the late 1940's, the unique interpretation of "No Salvation Outside the Church" put forth by the Saint Benedict's Center in Boston has been responded to with disciplinary measures, short articles, slim volumes, and only single chapters out of larger books devoted to other topics. This left the Feeneyites to assume silence as being consent regarding all the many quotes and arguments that long went unaddressed in such abridged treatments. But this can be no longer. And thus, in time, it finally was time to set the record straight. Griff provides a chronicle of how and why he decided to engage the Feeneyites in Genesis of the Polemics Against Feeneyism


Saint Robert Bellarmine, the holy Cardinal and Doctor of the Church is the feast in which Our Lady chose to begin her historic and vital apparitions to three children at the Cova in Portugal. This Italian saint was born on the feast of the founder of the Franciscans, but trained as a Jesuit and came through with flying colors in God's eyes in upholding the ideals of the Society as its founders had established. He was an extremely sharp polemist who was not afraid to take on the most vitrolic Protestant theologians and, because this master apologist never wavered from Catholic truth, he always won out in perpetuating the Counter Reformation of Trent. His fame, humility and sense of the sensus Catholicus won back countless souls who had wavered during the Reformation. But his wisdom was not employed only on the sheep, but the shepherds as well - the chief shepherds - for he was Theologian and Spiritual Counselor to no less than five Popes. He was the noted Theologian to the Roman Pontiffs


We know our Lord will not leave His apostles shorthanded for He will send His Spirit, the Holy Ghost which proves the Filioque of the Creed. How ironic when false prophets and antipopes are trying to justify the Jews in their sin, in this very week when such a denizen delves into the very region of Islam and Judaism and praises these religions that deny the Son and Holy Ghost. God detests such and Catholic truth condemns as heretical such actions. But should we be surprized? After all it's proven Ratzinger is no Catholic and we also know this because of Gospel of St. John the Evangelist on the truth. Our Lord foretold many times that the Jews would be a stubborn lot and indeed that has proven true for still today they brag about rejecting Him and expect faithful Catholics to tow their line rather than God's. More proof is visible for all to see today that the conciliar charlatans, by seeking to please the Jews and Muslims, answer to the prince of the world and not to the Son of God Who alone provides eternal happiness, re-emphasized so many times, especially in today's Gospel where Jesus promises He will always be with His children.

The saintly Doctor of the Church Saint Gregory Nazianzen is the fifth in a chronological list of the holy scholars of the Church, was another from the 4th century who also faced the intense persecutions and calumnies of the Arian bishops. Son of two saints - Saint Gregory Nazianzen the Elder and Saint Nonna - and the sibling of two others - Saint Caesarius and Saint Gorgonna - this Doctor of the Church teamed with another Doctor of the Church - Saint Basil - to uphold true teaching in combating the heresies of his time. The holy bishop St. Gregory Nazianzen is considered the Church's Theologian. This Cappadocian shepherd also nurtured a young protege who would turn out pretty well himself, one Saint Jerome. St. Gregory is often called the Administrator of Theology


Griff Ruby presents a column in which he asks: Is Bishop Fellay the answer to the end of the Crisis in the Church? Does he have the answers? Many within his own Society don't think so. They feel they are being betrayed. The question remains: Is he being beamed into the Vatican for the good of Catholics or at their expense? What assurance does he have that the Modernists can ever be sincere and honest? From what has been seen thus far one would be wise to suspect 'there's something rotten in Denmark' as well as Rome. A word of warning to those who place their hopes in Modern Rome: Don't! Griff lays out the parameters in his column To Go Where No Saint Has Gone Before


In choosing the Latin word with its meaning and etimology, we hope more will be attuned to hearing Latin read at the altar and better comprehend the beauty of the Mother tongue. The VerbumQUO today on the Feast of the holy and worthy Pope Saint Pius V is "ædificábo" which is "I will build" for the Latin future first conjugation singular of ædificáre. This verb fits perfectly with Pope St. Pius V for he, of all Popes, built what Christ had established 1533 years earlier by codifying the infallible dogmatic decrees of the Council of Trent and set in stone "in perpetuity" the continual Sacrifice with the Latin Mass, often called Tridentine Mass from the time of Trent, but known universally today as the Traditional Latin Mass with his infallible Papal Bull Quo Primum, assuring the bread and wine would be properly confected through his decree De defectibus Editor Michael Cain explains in The True Reason for celebrating Cinco de Mayo


In choosing the Latin word with its meaning and etimology, we hope more will be attuned to hearing Latin read at the altar and better comprehend the beauty of the Mother tongue. The VerbumQUO today is "desoláta" which is the Latin adjective for "desolate", a state that St. Monica found herself in since she herself was helpless to help her stubborn son. Thus, in such a state, she turned to God, persevering through constant prayer for the son she had brought into this world. So great was her love that all she asked was his salvation. Through her steady perseverance Saint Augustine went on to become not just a convert, but the staunch stalwart of the Faith, the great Bishop and Doctor of the Church, effecting countless conversions that were planted by the humble seeds of holy desolation in his mother who trusted in God's love and mercy. Editor Michael Cain explains in The Fruits of Perseverance


In bringing you a feature first published three years ago, Editor Michael Cain presents another VerbumQUO for this Double of the Second Class Feast of the Finding of the Holy Cross with the VerbumQUO today being Crucis, which is the Latin for "of the Cross", the singular possessive of the genitive and taken from today's Introit, Collect, Epistle, Secret and Communion for today's Proper of the Mass for the Finding of the True Cross Nos autem. The Holy Cross is the focal point of our lives for which we venerate and carry with us daily. As Christ showed that there can be no Resurrection without the Cross, there can be no Victory without the Cross for us. We must be willing to take up our cross and follow Him daily. Only then can we be assured of sharing in the triumph. Cain explains in By this Sign we will Conquer


Editor Michael Cain presents a special VerbumQUO for today's feast, first published three years ago, in hopes that, in choosing the Latin word with its meaning and etimology, more will be attuned to hearing Latin read at the altar and better comprehend the beauty of the Mother tongue. The VerbumQUO today is persecutiónem, which is the Latin for "persecution", taken from today's Epistle, and a perfect reminder of what today's saint whose feast we celebrate - Saint Athanasius - underwent to keep the Faith when seemingly all others had abandoned it for Arianism. So also today Traditional Catholics are persecuted in so many ways, deprived of the venues to practice their faith, they are forced into the "catacombs" to preserve the True Faith. In Athanasius they can take solace for he was the The Godfather of Dry Martyrs


    Yes, these are frightening times but we can take heart from the "Apostle of Tradition" Saint Athanasius who, in the time of the Arian heresy which pales in comparison to the heresies abounding today, stated, "They can occupy our churches, but they are outside the true Faith. You remain outside the places of worship, but the Faith dwells within you. Let us consider: what is more important, the place or the Faith? The true Faith, obviously. Who has lost and who has won in this struggle - the one who keeps the premises or the one who keeps the Faith? Even if Catholics who remain faithful to the Traditions are reduced to a handful, they are the ones who are the true Church of Jesus Christ."    The second day of Mary's Month of May is the Feast of the first man honored as a Doctor of the Church. That would be Saint Athanasius, the holy Bishop who withstood the brunt of the greatest apostasy in the Church until this present day when The Great Apostasy has arrived. It is in looking to this holy Doctor that we can take great hope and courage to stay the course and fight for the Faith as he did sixteen centuries ago. It was this stauch defender of Catholic truth, this Alexandrian Bishop who persisted against the Arian heresies through numerous popes. He was banished by emperors and the Arians four times. But in the end the True Faith won out, thanks to the persevereance of men like Saint Athanasius. Against all odds this Alexandrian Bishop persisted against the Arian heresies through numerous popes and was banished by emperors and the Arians four times. But in the end the True Faith won out, thanks to the perseverance of men like Saint Athanasius to whom we call on for intercession today when the VaticantwoArians had usurped the True Church and eclipsed Her, driving true Catholics into hiding to practice their faith just as Athanasius was forced to do seventeen hundred years ago. The more things change, as we see in today's Gospel, the more they stay the same for God's infernal enemy is our enemy and we should not fear man, but he who can destroy the soul. St. Athanasius is an ideal example of staying the course for he remains the Apostle of Tradition



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


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

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


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

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


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

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


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

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


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

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


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



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




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

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




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

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


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

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



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

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


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

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




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

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


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

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

    • 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
