June 2010 (jun2010.htm)

This series is an effort to return to basics since too often we all make the holy Faith complicated, whereas in reality the truths and traditions of the Catholic Faith are quite simple. God doesn't complicate things, man does. Realizing this fact, we've decided to employ this series to simplify the tenets of the Faith for those who continue to wallow in what they think is the 'Catholic Church' out of obedience to a man and his hierarchy who long ago betrayed Christ and His flocks. This then, is an affirmation of the basic truths the Spotless Bride of Christ has always taught and cannot change or evolve as "living documents" for truth is truth. As we say every day in the Act of Faith, "We believe these and all the truths which the holy Catholic Church teaches, because Thou hast revealed them, Who canst neither deceive nor be deceived." If you have been deceived, and the vast majority have been, then realize what you've been indoctrinated with over the past 50 years cannot be from God but from His adversary. Our advice: flee the conciliar confines as well as other man-made religions which do not teach these truths without compromise. Seek out a traditional chapel nearest to you. Knowing that is not as simple as it sounds, you can at least keep the Faith by knowing it. This is the intent of this series, continuing with Step Two: The Blessed Trinity

With all the scuttlebutt and spewing about illegal immigration and amnesty raising its ugly head again when terrorism is reaching its highest threat level and our borders have become a sieve as well as Obama's political welcome mat despite national security, Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey has filed two excellent essays on the problem in retracing the roots of immigration and the prejudices that arose because of Naturalism. He traces the history of Mexico and why today it has become an unstable bed of revolution, a rebellion against all Our Lady established through Guadalupe. Today her adversary has succeeded in not only fueling his minions to lie and deceive, but to twist the situation where decency doesn't stand a chance. All the ranting and rhetoric is futile if we as a nation and those residents of foreign nations continue to reject Christ as our Sovereign King and Mary as our Immaculate Queen. There is a right way and a wrong way and the wrong way is winning thanks to the godless politicians who place votes above all else, even to jeopardizing the very sovereign duty of a nation to protect its own borders. Security be damned as the dam is full of holes where every criminal riffraff and terrorist steal in beside those who are only seeking a better life. If the latter are so inclined, then get in line as all immigrants have in the past and then, in accordance with the melting pot that America has become, melt in, but never forget without Christ there is no hope. Tom explains in exposing the radical progressivists from the evil Woodrow Wilson to the likeminded Barack Hussein Obama. History has a way of repeating itself if we do not learn from history. As is only too evident, we haven't learned. Good Catholic Common Sense Must Prevail Part One and Good Catholic Common Sense Must Prevail Part Two

With the above, we wanted to bring you a redux of Gabriel Garnica's poignant piece on the brouhaha that consumed Congress three years ago and, just as it is doing today, ignoring the majority of their constituents. The public be damned. Lobbyists live and prosper in the dens of iniquity behind closed doors. Whether it's the Bush or Obama Administration, corruption still reigns. Just as satan never gives up in his relentless pursuit to damn souls, so also Congress continues to hammer away at the very foundations of our country by trying to make Illegal Immigration legal and turning law abiding citizens into righteous alarmists who have consistently shouted "No on Amnesty!" Truly we are living in a time when evil is having a field day and good has taken a holiday because so few are willing to stand for God's Laws and obey their only King. But then, in the legal ramifications that have corrupted our system of government because the U.S., like the conciliar church, have abandoned the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ, the sentence will be severe both temporally and spiritually. Despite the will of God and the will of the people, Congress and the conciliarists forge ahead with their acrimonious agenda. When will we truly realize the "liberal lie"? You can't say you weren't warned! Gabriel laid out the true Catholic response in his essay What Would Christ Say About Illegal Immigration?

After much prayer and discussions, we've decided to launch this series is an effort to return to basics since too often we all make the holy Faith complicated, whereas in reality the truths and traditions of the Catholic Faith are quite simple. God doesn't complicate things, man does. Realizing this fact, we've decided to employ this series to simplify the tenets of the Faith for those who continue to wallow in what they think is the 'Catholic Church' out of obedience to a man and his hierarchy who long ago betrayed Christ and His flocks. This then, is an affirmation of the basic truths the Spotless Bride of Christ has always taught and cannot change or evolve as "living documents" for truth is truth.

If you have been deceived, and the vast majority have been, then realize what you've been indoctrinated with over the past 50 years cannot be from God but from His adversary. Our advice: flee the conciliar confines as well as other man-made religions which do not teach these truths without compromise. Seek out a traditional chapel nearest to you. Knowing that is not as simple as it sounds, you can at least keep the Faith by knowing it. This is the intent of this series, beginning with Step One: Foundation and Mission of the Church

Following John Gregory meditation on the Second Glorious Mystery just over a week ago, he returns with inspiration for the Solemnity of the Descent of the Holy Ghost upon the Apostles in a meditation of the Third Glorious Mystery. Fifty days after our Lord Jesus Christ conquered death and ten days after He bodily ascended into Heaven, He made good on His promise to send His Spirit. The Holy Ghost came with a rush of grace and inspiration, transforming the formerly apprehensive Apostles into men of virtuous courage who were now ready to fully take up the command Christ had given them. The charism of the Church was born that day and the Faith spread rapidly with three thousand on the first day. A glorious day it was! John provides reflections on The Third Glorious Mystery: Pentecost

John Gregory provides inspiration for the Solemnity of the Ascension of Our Lord into Heaven on Thursday, May 13 this year in a meditation of the Second Glorious Mystery. The Son of God has gone to prepare a place for us, and thus the effects of the Ascension remain an on-going mystery for Christ continues to prepare for us at the Father's right hand and in that wondrous news is extended the greatest hope to all for where Christ has gone He waits for us to follow in a place of everlasting happiness for those who are obedient to His teachings and cooperate with the divine Will. Just as Jesus left instructions for His Apostles, He has left us inerrant instructions that, if we follow fully, will assure us of being with Him forever. John provides reflections on The Second Glorious Mystery: The Ascension

Editor Michael Cain files an editorial in which he thanks those who have responded to Cyndi's letter to readers in April. Then he provides the pepto to the paradigm for nausea. We know even the Lord can experience such symptoms for He said so in Apocalypse 3: 15-16. It is the apathetic attitudes He despises and it is the lukewarm who will fall prey to the devil. There are also those who are "hot" (as opposed to those who are "cold") who have dedicated their lives to undermining all that is sacred and set in stone such as, for State, the Constitution of the United States, and for Church, the infallible dogmatic decrees of the Council of Trent. As the conciliar church continues to unravel an interesting document has surfaced that could be the true Third Secret. That's the buzz that could be the death knell for the termites that have burrowed into the very fabric of the Faith and left their lascivious larvae, infecting holy Mother Church for over half a century and now out to destroy America. Oh, they are persistent buggers in trying to destroy the foundation of both Church and State. But we have the antidote to their sting. After all, the best extermination is the truth whether it's setting the facts straight or proclaiming the infrangible teachings of the Church. Jesus said so in St. John 8: 32 and Cain elaborates on the fact that we are fast Coming to That Moment of Truth

The second day of Mary's Month of May is the Feast of the first man honored as a Doctor of the Church Saint Athanasius, the holy Bishop who withstood the brunt of the greatest apostasy in the Church until this present day Great Apostasy we are living in. Though Athanasius was not martyred, he is considered the first of countless dry martyrs who have been persecuted by their own for adhering uncompromisingly to the holy Faith. 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 this Apostle of Tradition

This year, like St. Athanasius, a Sunday supersedes the Feast of the holy Doctor of the Church and Bishop St. Gregory Nazianzen. Saint Gregory Nazianzen, 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 the holy 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

Though the holy Doctor of the Church Saint Robert Bellarmine was born in Italy on the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, he opted to be a Jesuit when the Society were a dedicated order in upholding the ideals of the Jesuits' founders. 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 Protestant Revolution. 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 Roman Pontiffs and Trent

While the first step to sainthood is making one "venerable" the title of Saint Bede the Venerable means so much more for he was the illustrious ornament of the Anglo-Saxon Church and its very first historian. Considered the Father of English History, he was the first to date events as in the "Year of Our Lord" - Anno Domini (A.D.) and would be appalled today to hear that the Modernist secularists want to make it A.C.E. (After the Common Era)in doing away with any reference to Christ whatsoever, all part of the anti-Catholic agenda to de-Christianize America thoroughly. That is the Masonic creed which Bede would never have stood for. St. Bede was officially named a Doctor of the Church by Pope Leo XIII. Considered a Father of the Church, he was the Benedictines' jewel and is often called the Holy Historian

        It has definitely been a decade of transition, as this editor dubs it - Transition to Tradition, our last opportunity before God really lowers the boom. Looking back, it doesn't take a brain surgeon to see the deterioration in society as the ranks of the good, decent ones striving for holiness grow smaller and the enemy flanks are massing larger and larger, more threatening than ever. With every day we inch closer to the apocalypse foretold in the book of the same name, contrary to Protestant and conciliar concerns that it was always called "Revelation." Would St. John the Evangelist be surprised, and for that matter the holy Doctor of the Church who translated it and several of the holy hierarchs who ratified the Scriptures at various major councils of the Church, most recently at the dogmatic Council of Trent. Many closet conciliarists reading this may not be familiar with that council since the robber barons have sought to eliminate any mention of Trent in the same manner as the U.S. Government is doing everything it can to wipe out any mention of God. For both these offenses there are consequences, grave ones and we are beginning to see now that both anti-Catholic campaigns by the counterfeit church of conciliarism and the United States Congress and its cohorts in the Obama administration both in Washington and Chicago are getting more desperate as each day passes. Those not grounded in grace had best get right with God before it is too late. Call it "gloom and doom" if you want, but that doom can be eternal and that would cause anyone gloom. Can you say fire and brimstone? To remind you, we will be bringing you throughout this year "Diadems of the Decade" featuring an article from each month of each of the past ten years. We're not saying these are the "Best" of the decade for how do you choose which ones are the best? Yet, they are gems that we want to share for we're sure you will treasure them and realize, like fine jewels, they are still as valuable today especially when investing in souls. For this edition, we present a diadem for each May from 2000 through May 2009.

This column ran a decade ago in which Pat Ludwa prompted all to understand the method God sometimes uses to bring man back to Him. He showed how, through sin, a man can be converted from his evil ways just as Saint Paul and Saint Augustine were to name but a few of the countless souls who walked in darkness before seeing the light. Pat illustrated how God allows evil for good. By that is meant God allows man to do of his free will, to be tempted, to pursue activities that are in direct confrontation against the Almighty. He does so that to show man the emptiness, the void that still exists no matter how rich one might be or secure in their profession for without God, there is nothing. That is the gist of Pat's column ten years ago which is even more pertinent today, when it's a golden opportunity to realize Sin Has Value!!!.

While the title of Dr. Frank Joseph's article a year after Pat's above would seem to contradict Ludwa's, they're actually in lock step with Catholic truth. There are many pro life advocates who get the press and accolades in the crusade for the Sanctity of Life, few are more dedicated than the retired physician Dr. Frank Joseph. Ever since his retirement well over a decade ago, Frank has committed his life to exposing the insidious culture of death, a moratorium that began with Roe vs. Wade and since has resulted in over 80 million unborn innocents being slaughtered in the womb. Frank wrote this article nine years ago when more supposed 'Catholics' than ever had been elected to Congress. You would think that would have bode well for eventually overturning abortion laws and returning to sanity in pleading for God's mercy for His little ones. As we can see in those nine years since it has not only gotten worse, but one of the senators mentioned went on to become Vice President. Talk about a joke! To this day Frank continues to uncover the horrors and political chicanery of those who would continue to make it open season on killing the innocent babies. In 2001, Catholics controlled the Senate, Frank asked if they would join Bush and the Republicans in honoring God by stopping the Killing of Unborn babies, or would they continue to sell their souls to satan for political gain? Sadly, today in 2010 we know the answer to that all too well. You Cannot Justify Sin!

In an early editorial eight years ago the editor of The DailyCatholic hinted that sedevacantism was very possible considering the actions of the men claiming to be 'Popes.' Cain reported from the bunkers where Traditionalists have been hunkered down deflecting needless artillery from Modern Rome who has decided the real enemy is anyone who professes to embrace the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church, which is Eternal Rome. Meanwhile the scandalous and very damaging 'fruits of Vatican II' continue to run amok in the post-conciliar jungle as it becomes more apparent everyday that the "top banana" Modernists have no intention to rein in the abusers. They claim they see no evil, hear no evil and say no evil yet it is obvious they're slipping all over themselves on the peels of denial and contradiction as evil indeed permeates every fiber of the hierarchy. So much for trust. The modern hierarchy ape sincerity while continuing to monkey around with the sacrosanct. We can see this so clearly today as more and more evidence surfaces over Ratzinger's complicity in covering up the sex scandals and everything is unraveling. Why then is anyone still duped into believing he could ever possibly be a true Pontiff, let alone Catholic? Cain asks in Who's Fooling Who?!?

This letter by Bishop Richard Williamson was published on these pages with permission seven years ago. At the time he was responding to the rumors flying around in 2003 about "re-incommunication" with modern Rome. Back then he made it manifestly clear that Conciliar 'Catholicism' is not Authentic Roman Catholicism and Traditional Catholics, indeed every Catholic, has a duty to resist and to engage in all out war against the Conciliarists for only one will be left standing and, for the sake of millions and millions of souls, let us hope and pray that True Catholicism will win out. He said then that both could not stand, especially if the SSPX is compromised by the enemy camp of the New-church Vatican. Fast forward to present time and we have to ask, what happened? Today he is a house prisoner of the turncoat Bishop Fellay. What was that part Bishop Williamson said about only one house can stand? He still has his chance to speak out before the entire SSPX are swallowed up by the VulgArians. Read carefully his words from seven years ago when he wrote Two Rumors and More to Come?

Six years ago Gabriel Garnica tried to burrow through the wall that continues even to today to be unmistakenly erected by the twisters of truth. That wall is the wall of Separation between Church and State, something that has totally been misrepresented and misunderstood. The logic of those saying there must be a wall is more twisted than a pretzel, but that doesn't seem to faze warped minds that neglect the importance and necessity of the documents of truth - the Holy Scriptures and why the U.S. Constitution, Declarion of Independance, and Bill of Rights were founded upon the principles and tenets of the Holy Bible. That is a problem with the New Order who are so malleable to accepting the New Manifesto of Modernism, while twisting the Living Documents to justify killing. "Thou shalt not kill" means nothing to these cannibals of cantankerousness. Gabriel explained in When Living Documents Are Twisted To Justify Death!

Five years ago, we brought you a short essay by Father Kevin Vaillancourt, editor of the Traditional publication The Catholic Voice who had given us personal permission to reprint his article from many years ago on the very subject of the questioning of the validity of the Sacrament of Ordination which Paul VI changed. Father reinforced that what Pius XII decreed in Sacramentum Ordinis has been omitted in the new rite of ordination and thus throwing so much into mass confusion with the conciliar church. Father Kevin provided the correct words of the long established traditional rite of Ordination. He clarified why those ordained in the new rite after 1968 are presbyters and not really worthy of the revered title "Father." What is worse, is that they can't confect the Sacrament either. That creates a major problem for those who think they can. "Father" or Not "Father"?

Five years ago, Timothy Duff, who has taught Traditional Catholicism for decades and is also a consummate expert on Venerable Mary Agreda's masterful work Mystical City of God, provided a primer on how to help our friends trapped in the Novus Ordo establishment to see the truths of the True Mass, the True Faith and to better understand why the New Order 'Mass' is not from Christ nor from the Church He established! It is not Catholic! The title of this article seems obvious enough, does it not? What Catholic could be found who would not agree that the Church is not above Christ? Yet the belief that the Catholic Church has more authority than Jesus Christ Himself is actually the very core of the error of those who attend the Novus Ordo Missae or "New Order Mass" (NOM). It is a sacred duty of charity for those whom the Sacred Heart of Jesus has mercifully called to attend exclusively the Traditional Latin Mass to desire the same grace for others. That is why Tim shares this "how to explain why" to help our friends trapped in the counterfeit church of conciliarism to truly understand Catholic truth as he explained so clearly in his magnificent essay The Church is Not Above Christ

Though Father James Francis Wathen has passed on to his eternal reward, he has left us not only his words of wisdom in Making Sense of sensus Catholicus and his magnificent and irrefutable opus The Great Sacrilege, but has also given us several radio reflections. We are grateful to be able to bring you these pearls of wisdom, especially this one in which Fr. Wathen peeled away the layers of complication that the world covers everything with in order to deny the simplest, most basic point of life: Why God made us. Father resorted to the first question of the Baltimore Catechism to refute all the great minds that steer us away from the ineffable truth that we are His creations to do as He wills and if we are not willing to cooperate, then we deserve the fate that awaits us. He called upon the brilliant Father Frederick Faber to bring home this everlasting truth and the audacity of those who think they can go it alone...for they are in for a shock when all is said and done and they pass back into dust. Father Wathen explained in God intends us to have Meaning and Purpose to our life God intends us to have Meaning and Purpose to our life

With the last day of May being the feast of the Queenship of Mary, we bring you John Gregory's inspiration on the Fifth Glorious Mystery with the exemplary words of Pope Pius XII's encyclical Munificentissimus Deus pertaining to her Coronation. For the first part of his encyclical on the Dogma of the Assumption on November 1, 1950, the last time anything infallible has been pronounced from the See of Peter, see first part of encyclical. As His Holiness put it so poignantly for what greater glory can there be for a lifetime of devotion and uncompromising fiat to the divine will than to be recognized for all time what the Blessed Mother accomplished in being crowned by her divine Son and heavenly Father with the assistance of the Holy Ghost, her divine Spouse. It is a lesson for us that indeed there is a light at the end of this worldly tunnel, a light from the Beatific Vision attainable only by adhering willingly and lovingly to the will of Almighty God for she is the Woman of the Apocalypse, with a crown of twelve stars. John provides the inspiration for Coronation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Last year Griff Ruby presented a column in which he asked: 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 year has passed and we can see Fellay is very much of the problem, especially by his purging those who object to his sell-out. The SSPX is in a great state of flux and for those still associated with the Society, the proof is in the pudding by Fellay's total silence in the face of ever more egregious offenses, heresies and outright deceit of all by the usurper in Rome and his thugs in purple and red. Griff's warning holds truer than ever to those who would place their hopes in Modern Rome: Don't! Griff lays out the parameters in his column To Go Where No Saint Has Gone Before
