One can never mix the Sacred with the Profane
A whole new Pandora's Box has been opened with the release of the Motu as the "fence sitters" teeter trying to make up their mind. They can't be on both sides. Thousands of Catholics are asking questions and the Fathers from the TRADITIO Network address the most important ones, which deal directly with Benedict's Motu that it will become a mixture of the Motu with the Novus Ordo. As much as BeneRatz would like it to justify his synthesis-antithesis, it cannot and will not mix, will not blend together. Just as oil cannot mix with water, so also the sacred can never mix with the profane. It is an insult to God to even endeavor such a blasphemous act by forcing a synthetic man-made rite into a divinely ordained perfect rite established by God Himself and a means of salvation for billions for nearly twenty centuries. The Fathers point out not only the inconsistencies, but the null and void aspects of the conciliar presbyters which come up far short of Anglican Orders and the Fathers provide the proof His Holiness Pope Leo XIII's Apostolicae Curae which furnishes more than enough evidence that the current crop of "priests" ordained since 1968 cannot be valid priests and therefore cannot confect the Sacrament of the Altar whether it be the NOM or a Motu. It takes a true priest ordained in the true Roman Rite changed by Paul VI in 1968. In a question from a Novus Ordo "Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist" on whether he can continue such abomination at the Motu, the Fathers clearly point out there are far graver problems than that in The Folly of Combining the Novus Ordo and the "Motu Mess"


"The Most Beautiful Thing This Side of Heaven"
With the expanding internet technology, The Daily Catholic has admittedly been behind the curve in presenting audio presentations along with print. One reason we have not until now is because we ourselves were not equipped to listen to these audios so that we could recommend them. Now we've added some software that enables this editor to hear them and pass these jewels on to our readers. The faithful have, thanks to TraditionalCatholicSermons.org, a library of excellent sermons and talks that we want to highlight and bring to your attention. Today we begin with the first part of a series of sermons His Excellency Bishop Donald Sanborn gave two years ago on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in explaining the great gift we have in the Immemorial Canonized Apostolic Mass of All Ages. He commences with informing all why Latin was and is the universal language of the Church and His Excellency points out that the language cannot change because our religion cannot change, and thus we have kept this custom throughout the history of the Church until Vatican II when they "invented a vulgar service." His words prompted us to coin the word "VulgArians" to describe those who would choose trash over treasure. The Bishop provides all kinds of pearls that will give you a greater appreciation for what Father Frederick Faber called "The Most Beautiful Thing this side of Heaven." His first sermon is around twenty minutes which you can listen to while you surf other ports on The Daily Catholic. The Mass: Why Latin?


Another Traditional Pioneer Priest Has Been Taken from our Midst
  Word has reached us that Father Patrick Fox, one of the pioneers of preserving the Traditional Latin Mass in Australia and New Zealand, has completed his mission on earth and has been called to his eternal reward. For 68 years he served our Lord faithfully, never ever saying the abominable Novus Ordo. He was born in the second year of Pope Benedict XV's pontificate and ordained a priest in the early months of the papacy of Pope Pius XII. He played a pivotal role in welcoming the SSPX down under and assisted them wherever and whenever he could. Yet, his allegiance to the Vincentians to which he was ordained, created many crosses with the drastic changes and the order following the conciliar collective and he was forced into the catacombs to continue celebrating the Immemorial Canonized Mass of All Ages. An interesting vignette in Fr. Fox's life was that he was pastor in the 60's and early 70's to several who had moved to Sydney from the United States to ensure they still had the Traditional Latin Mass. One of those young families was Hutton Gibson and his children, one of whom was none other than Mel Gibson. Fr. Fox's funeral services were held this past weekend which included two Requiem Masses and burial at the SSPX Holy Cross Seminary down under on Saturday. Once again the traditional movement has lost a noble, persevering dry martyr who never compromised his faith or loyalty to Christ and His Church.


Will Ratzinger never quit monkeying with Catholic truth?

  In case those traditionalists and conservative neo-Catholics were too busy either shopping for white flags or searching for flowers to strew at the feet of Benedict XVI in their misplaced euphoria over his Motu a few weeks ago, we remind you to read what he said just a few days ago as he was finishing up his holiday in northern Italy. He was on holiday and has been since the fifties - a holiday from the True Faith! Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey files an essay which contains proof of his most recent heretical scuttlebutt. Along with all the other heresies which he has never recanted, he pronounced publicly late last week that "We all see that today man can destroy the foundation of his existence, his Earth." No, that wasn't radical global-warming nutcase Al Gore in disguise, that was the man some traditionalists are willing now to recognize as a valid pope when what he says, and has said since before Pope Pius XII censured him in the 50's, has been heretical and a modernist through and through. Tom documents this most recent heresy and warns all to beware of this most dangerous Hegelian disciple by citing Catholic truth not only in the Scriptures, but also His Holiness St. Pius X's Pascendi Dominici Gregis. Tom also shows the "evolution" of this heresy by tracing his revolutionary evolution ideas back to Georg Hegel and Pierre Tielhard de Chardin. No, folks, Ratzinger is not and cannot be a Catholic Pope for a true pope cannot teach error in matters of faith and morals and that is all ol' BeneRatz seems to do! And don't buy the flimsy excuse which those, trying to justify their resist-and-recognize position, use that he is "just expressing private opinion." Private? Hardly, evident in the volumes of other pronouncements which are public and widespread. The "private opinion" doesn't hold water any more than Benedict can change water into wine or wine into the Blood of Christ with his Novus Ordo rite. Tom provides yet another example to illustrate, as the above graphic bluntly depicts, that the "emperor" isn't wearing any clothes. Tom illustrates how evolution is intrinsic to a Hegelian and Modernist who thrive on evolving truth through synthesis-antithesis. Besides being a Modernist, Benedict also espouses Pantheism. Anathema sit indeed! Tom lays it all out in Listen to the Voice of God


The Mother who set the standard for preparing her child for God's specific purpose
  To commemorate this Double of the Second Class Feast of Saint Anne Mother of the Mother of God, we present a tribute by Denise Trias in which she lists the holy attributes of St. Joachim's holy wife. While today is not Mother's Day, it could very well be. At the least it should be "Grandmother's Day" because it is the feast of the greatest grandmother who ever lived, the grandmother of none other than the Son of God Himself. Yes, we are referring to good Saint Anne. What other term can one give to this awesome, obedient and patient loving mother of the Mother of God? She is the patron of many and, in the great clarion of saints is often overlooked, lost in the shuffle since she was one of the very first saints. Her cooperation with God through her spouse Joachim produced in her autumn years the miracle of birth. In her womb was formed the most Immaculate, perfect finite being the world has ever, or will ever, know. How could we ever forget Mary's mother and Jesus' Grandma? She sets the example of perseverance and the priority of bearing children. This is a lesson lost on today's selfish, instant-gratification generation who have so sadly forgotten that the rewards of motherhood are 'rolled over' in Heaven forever. Why? Because mothers work in cooperation with God to populate Heaven, and this would never have been possible without the fiat of good Saint Anne. Denise also takes the reader inside St. Anne's Shrine in Massachusetts to illustrate some of the magnificent statues in this magnificent edifice, most notably of St. Anne herself nurturing her beloved, Immaculate daughter in body, mind and soul. Denise shares her experience in Good Saint Anne, Patroness of Mothers


The new refrain that could be heard in the not-too-distant future from Feminists: "I am Conciliar Woman, Hear me Roar! Then pass me the Red Hat. It will go great with my ensemble."
How ironic and sad that we notify you, after the above on the feast of one who epitomized femininity, the agenda of the feminists who, evidently, have Ratzinger's ear. We've all heard of the "time bombs" planted in the Vatican II reforms, thanks to the alert research of the late traditional crusader Michael Davies, who, despite all his wonderful contributions, may be part of the cause for many traditionalists being duped today by BeneRatz and his latest little coup de tat against traditional resistance - his Motu Mess. Indeed, those time bombs are still ticking and one of the most explosive ones is being tossed around like a grenade by various press wigs within the Vatican Collective. One such is Pater Eberhard von Gemmingen, Vatican Radio Correspondent for German listeners who is touting that Ratzinger could very well be laying the groundwork for not only women priests, but female cardinals! You heard us right and The Fathers at TRADITIO Network have more details in one of their most recent postings on the real agenda of the Modernists and Feminists laying in the weeds, ready to pounce. Now we can see another motive for Chiara Lubich's part in plastering St. Peter's Square with pre-printed signs clamoring Subito Santo for the nefarious Karol Wojtyla at his funeral. So much for "spontaneity." The Fathers lay out the differences between Traditional Catholic beliefs and fiction such as the infamous "Popess Joan" and do so in conjunction with the Ninth Sunday after Pentecost in which the Epistle admonishes not to tempt Christ and the Gospel relates how our Lord reacted when they turned the House of Prayer into a den of thieves; exactly what the counterfeit church of conciliarism has done. See, Benedict-Ratzinger's Press Director Predicts Female Cardinals Coming
By knowing who influenced a Modernist, you will know him as still a Modernist! You might say, "By their roots you shall know them."
  Every Catholic is supposed to pray the Act of Faith each morning upon waking, along with the Acts of Hope, Charity and Contrition. Do we really believe what we say in the Act of Faith? One wonders, as does Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey as he lays out how Father Joseph Ratzinger surely does not. In fact Tom traces the Hegelian and heretical roots of Ratzinger's folly in thinking that dogma and truth can evolve. Doctrine is set in stone. It cannot change and this is something that everyone should realize as they go running to strew roses where BeneRatz walks in idolizing a man who has given recognition to false idols by condoning the ecumaniacal congratulations to Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim, Jewish and Protestant feasts; a direct slap in the face of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the Church He established with the infrangible truths we must believe as professed in the Act of Faith. Tom details how Ratzinger has incurred anathema sit from previous reliable true Sovereign Pontiffs who put it in no uncertain terms. He explains in his essay, Has Not God Revealed Them All?
    Speaking of roots, Tom switches from Ecclesiastical to the Executive Branch Mode in showing that the Bush and Clinton Clan come from the same mold and that mold, no matter how the spinmeisters shape it, is molding for it is not and has never been built on the foundation of Catholic truth. For that very reason it has failed and will continue to fail despite the rhetoric that they have the answers. Only One has the answers and He is not in politics, but His truths are upheld only in the catecomb churches where true bishops and priests strive to impart the unsullied Faith! They are the true public servants we should look up to. Tom delineates the corrosion of American soil and its soul in Two Families in Alternate Worlds

You can't keep a good saint down! Long live the memory and veneration of Saint Christopher, instrinsically linked to St. James and our Lord.
   While today we celebrate the Double of the Second Class Feast of Saint James the Greater, lost in the shuffle is poor Saint Christopher whom the Vatican II Modernists didn't particularly take a hankering to and, with the feeble excuse that "there wasn't enough historical proof of his existence", eliminated him from the liturgical calendar just as he did dear Saint Philomena. In a way they weren't offended. After all, what else would you expect from an impostor intent on destroying the holy faith? In an effort to keep St. Christopher visible for Catholics, we present here a brief summation of his virtues by the renowned Abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger from The Liturgical Year.

The name of Christopher, whose memory enhances the solemnity of the son of thunder, signifies one who bears Christ. Christina yesterday reminded us that Christians ought to be in every place the good odor of Christ (2 Corinthians 2: 15), Christopher today puts us in mind that Christ truly dwells by faith in our hearts (Ephesians 3: 17). The graceful legend attached to his name is well known. [though Montini and his gang of Modernists didn't think so!] As other men were at a later date, to sanctify themselves in Spain by constructing roads and bridges to facilitate the approach of pilgrims to the tomb of St. James, so Christopher in Lycia had vowed for the love of Christ to carry travelers on his strong shoulders across a dangerous torrent. Our Lord will say on the last day: 'What you did to one of these My least brethren, you did it unto Me.' One night, being awakened by the voice of a child asking to be carried across, Christopher hastened to perform his wonted task of charity, when suddenly, in the midst of the surging and apparently trembling waves, the giant, who had never stooped beneath the greatest weight, was bent down under his burden, now grown heavier than the world itself. 'Be not astonished,' said the mysterious child, 'thou bearest Him Who bears the world.' And He disappeared, blessing His carrier and leaving him full of heavenly strength. Christopher went on to be crowned with martyrdom under Decius. The aid our fathers knew how to obtain from him against storms, demons, plague, accidents of all kinds, has caused him to be ranked among the saints called helpers. In many places the fruits of the orchards were blessed on this day, under the common auspices of St. Christopher and St. James.

Tomb of St. James in Santiago Compostela in Spain In many traditional parishes, vehicles are blessed on this day as well for St. Christopher medals and statues still populate traditional homes and cars. St. Christopher ferried so many of His "lesser ones" across the turbulent river to pray at the tomb (above left) of St. James the Greater at Santiago Compostela in Spain. A final thought. Why would Archbishop Giovanni Montini have wanted to rid the calendar of St. Christopher? Why would Bishop Karol Wojtyla and Father Joseph Ratzinger have followed suit in condoning such insolence? Could it be because St. Christopher, is, as Abbe Gueranger points out above, the patron saint against demons and we all know who let the demon dogs in the front door after Cardinal Angelo Roncalli opened wide the back door. Sancte Christophorus, ora pro nobis.


Now Performing: "The Great Benedini", Master Illusionist Extraordinaire et Ordinaire*

    *Since he seems to think Extraordinary and Ordinary rites are compatable, which they cannot be!
As many scribes and pharisees dissect BeneRatz's latest trick, the Motu Proprio, a few trusted sources nail what and who is really behind the curtain, who's really pulling the strings, who is hypnotizing countless clueless Catholics into doing whatever the master illusionist "The Great Benedini" says. He should be a headliner at the Palladium, his act is so clever, but he's not exactly playing off-Broadway as this Modernist marionette dangles the strings from his stage in Vatican City. However the Fathers from the TRADITIO Network are not so easily fooled as they expose the conciliar charade for what it really is. They write for the feast of St. Panteleon (who by the way chose martyrdom over his betraying, even one iota, his Lord and Master Jesus Christ, or the holy faith this martyr was blessed with. This medical doctor in the time of Diocletian would not offer one pinch of incense to the pagan gods; a far cry from the total surrender and syncretism today in Rome!), "The Achilles heel in the Great 'Motu' Mess Hoax is Benedict-Ratzinger's blatant lie that the Catholic and Apostolic Traditional Latin Mass of St. Peter and the fabricated 1969 Novus Ordo Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service of the Freemason Hannibal Bugnini and his Committee of Six Protestant Ministers are 'a single rite.' And Benedict-Ratzinger knows that he has published a lie in Summorum pontificum because he himself called it so in 1992, when he wrote that the Novus Ordo service did not come from Catholic and Apostolic Tradition, but was 'a fabrication, a banal on-the-spot product.'" You can read more at their latest posting on the Hoax, and about the intent to incorporate yet a new missal that will further confuse pewgoers, but then isn't that exactly how Vatican II came about? One also has to wonder if Bishop Fellay isn't attached to one of those strings. The Father's clarify in Great Motu Mess Hoax Continues with a possible 'Motu Missal' on the horizon


They say fish are not as smart as several give them credit for despite the fact they're most often found in "schools", but there's a special kind of finny species that is the favorite catch of the Modernists and ol' BeneRatz the Angler has just stocked Lake Conciliar with the choice large mouth bass, known by the species name resistandrecognize, whose gullible gills give away their heart and make them a prime lure for the conciliar carp. They're being reeled in as we write (just take a look at the latest Remnant for evidence of being in way over the limit). But you just know Benny and his crew are only going to toss most of 'em back into the drink or place them on the hook as bait for bigger fish, if you get the drift. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey does, for he bobbed up and down on that Lake as we did for so many years, frustrated and rowing against the waves that were always flowing to the left. They still do, though now they are more turbulent as the casting intensifies for tradfish. Watch out, you may not realize it, but if you're being reeled in by the spinning lure of the Motu, you're just being fattened up for bait. Tom explains in his article in which he reminds us that we had better be wary because fishing season is open and to the Modernists, there are no limits, no rules. He elaborates in Hook, Line, and Sinker
How CMRI Brides of Christ were led into Subterfuge and
Insurrection to Abandon the Vows they professed.

      Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey files an investigative piece that should alert the faithful to beware of wolves, ravenous ones, in the clothing of sheep. This is a follow-up to several of Tom's articles in which he has expertly dealt with the rebellion and misinformation that has been circulating on blogs that are out of touch with the real problem, out of touch with the truth of the whole matter regarding the sabotage of several former CMRI sisters. He cites the subterfuge that had been fomented by the rebellious sisters who, in the planning, dismissed their vows of obedience as well as their vows of poverty by accepting gifts from those who look at them as trophies with never a care for their immortal soul but only to protect their own interests and continue the charade of the counterfeit church of conciliarism that is totally without good fruits, a bad, rotting tree that we all know will be cast into the eternal fire just as our Lord has affirmed in last Sunday's Gospel, most pertinent to this essay by Tom as to "the wolves in the clothing of a sheep." As we did on June 6, so also in this piece we felt it important to also publish and format it with his permission for our permanent archives. Tom reveals things Popes Leo XIII and St. Pius X warned us of, but the counterfeit church of conciliarism, at every level of its hierarchy, don't want you to know. It needs to be told, needs to be known as Tom reveals in his expose, The Rest of the Story
    Sisters, O Sisters, do you realize what you have done?
      Griff Ruby pens a heart-wrenching Open Letter to those CMRI Sisters who have turned their backs on what holy Mother Church has always held sacred and have embraced the New Order with all its novelties, despite their profession of Vows. He writes from his heart in hoping that for these Brides of Christ, who have left their Groom, are merely struggling with a brief separation and not divorce. In addressing the Sisters directly Griff shows how it pains our Lord and our Lady so that you weren't satisfied with those God entrusted to you to help you achieve your eternal salvation. If you believe that can be attained through the mechanisms of the Novus Ordoites you're in for quite a life-shock. Sooner or later it will hit those Sisters who heard the siren and fell for the love-bombs. Eve did the same thing. To God and to those you left behind at the Mount, you are a priceless treasure. As such, we have to ask as Jesus referred to in St. Matthew 7: 5-6. Do you really and truly want to give that which is holy to dogs? Jesus has the answer: "Neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest perhaps they trample them under their feet, and turning upon you, tear you." Think about that, dear Sisters of illusion. That is the fate that awaits. It's inevitable. All those you left behind continue to pray for you and and have great concern for your spiritual welfare and for your state of mind, in so much emotional confusion at this time. Just remember, Sisters, home is just around the corner and up the hill. You know the way. It's up to you to return to the only sure path to get there. Griff extends hope that this will still be possible with his chock-full-of-Catholic-love An Open Letter to the Sisters who have left the CMRI


    If you can't beat 'em, join 'em! Modernists cajole Communists. Reds of a Feather stick together! Beijing and Benedict Betray True Catholics Again!
    Among his many infamous statements over the years from "subsists in" to the Fatima Fabrication of the Third Secret, Father Joseph Ratzinger has opened mouth and inserted foot in his attempt to pacify all groups from the Muslims to the Jews. Now he's in trouble again with Protestants for uncharacteristally sounding Catholic for once in signing off on a CDF release that states a direct contradiction to Lumen Gentium and a week later comes the usual "we didn't mean what we said" explanatory letter and denials that makes Bill Clinton's explanations seem mild compared to the bizarre banalties emanating from the seat of the counterfeit conciliar church. But, as Dr. Marian Horvat points out, he's gone too far this time in conceding surrender to Red China and sacrificing those loyal Catholics who have fought for over half a century to preserve the true faith. But that wouldn't be expedient to pleasing the majority which is Benedict's goal: to placate man with his incessant "dialogue" spiel that he promoted behind the scenes at Vatican 2 as one of the main periti and as the gnat in the ear of Montini and Wojtyla. A yes man, this Hegelian, that's for sure. While he schmoozes traditionalists to lure them into his clutches with his much misunderstood and deceiving Motu Summorum Pontificum in his demonic attempt to defuse opposition to the heresies he has promoted by dividing traditional camps and conquering, he has chosen to make friends of mammon with the vast powerful sleeping bear: China. What BeneRatz has proposed is akin to Pope St. Pius I conceding to Marcus the Agnostic, or Pope St. Fabian going along with the Roman Emperor Decius and advising Christians to give it up, go ahead and offer incense, or Pope St. Leo the Great giving Attila the Hun the keys of the kingdom and the city of Rome, or Pope St. Gregory VII tolerating the Holy Roman Emperor Henry IV and not excommunicating him for that might disturb the political situation of the times, or Pope Clement VII writing the clergy and people of England that they should all get along and do what Henry VIII advises, though Rome can't officially recognize his illegitimate marriages, Rome won't interfere because it wouldn't be best for the "unity of community." Ridiculous? You bet but that's exactly what the most dangerous man to ever sit on the throne of Peter has done and Dr. Horvat nails the consequences in her article, Benedict Delivers Underground Catholics to Communism
    Space!   That area between the ears of Cling-ons who dare to boldly go where no saint or true Catholic would dare go. Yet they're still willing to let Benny beam 'em up into the Starship Consillyium!
    Captain Kirk, move over for the VulgArian Joseph Ratzinger has commandeered the spaceship Consillyium and is threatening to take it to the Next Generation with a reform of the reform of the reform. He just needs to convince the Cling-ons whose cloak of invisibility is soon to become very visible in their being duped by Captain BeneRatz and his counterfeit conciliar crew. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey records in his Christ or chaos logs on stardate July 17, of the horrendous dangers that lay ahead. All one has to do is look back to see the course set by the conciliarists and realize it's a doomed flight. And yet the head of the Cling-ons and other resist-and-recognize civilizations are ready to hand over their crafts and Catholic integrity for the sake of the unity of the new world universe. Thankfully, there are still a few guarding the Catholic Galaxy of Truth and they reside in the Sedevacantist Enterprise, a most appropriate metaphor meant as a slur by Christopher Ferrara a few years ago, but a rallying cry for the resistance to buckle in, avoid the siren of Hegelian madness, put up the force field of non-compromise, and vow allegiance to Christ to faithfully uphold the Sacred Deposit of Faith, firmly embedded in the hull of the true Barque of Peter cloaked by an eclipse since the fall of 1958. Now is the time to defend Catholic truth against the onslaught of the VulgArians, Cling-ons and other forces intent on revising the infrangible logs of the infallible, perennial Magisterium. The true Church will prosper again, once it destroys the blackhole of conciliarism. To help Catholics navigate through the darkness out there, Tom sets the Catholic coordinates with his essay, Liturgy: The Final Frontier
    A Catholic Response to the CDF Spin!
    Griff Ruby, who has written one of the most thorough refutations of Vatican II in pinpointing the document Lumen Gentium as the culprit that cut the conciliar church off from the Catholic Church, files his response to the nonsense issued last week by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (sic). No matter how the counterfeit conciliarists try to spin "subsists in" it always comes back to their interpretation of what "subsists in" subsists in. It's the old shell game, a languishing labyrinth of ambiguities in which they fashion facts after the fact that have, in fact, no fact to them. Such is the state of deceivers. They can seldom remember what they said before and often tend to cover one lie with another even more ridiculous. In so doing they not only expose themselves more openly as being satan's architects of the "operation of error", but aggravate the very "friends of mammon" they're trying to pander to in their ineptitude to explain away a heresy that still remains a heresy no matter how they twist it. Griff breaks it down in his treatise, How One Novelty Invents More Novelties
    The Significance of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel
    Down through the ages Mount Carmel has been a rock of inspiration and sanctification from the time of Elias to present day. The story of Carmel is prose, poetry and prayer and basically the benchmark of the Blessed Virgin Mary's integral role as Advocate, Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix of all graces. Carmel has been favored by Our Lady as foretold in the Old Testament and as manifested to St. Simon Stock in 1251 when she bestowed on him the Brown Scapular and the amazing promise of ultimate salvation to all who abide by the rules of the Scapular. In addition, at Lourdes the Blessed Mother appeared to Bernadette as Our Lady of Mt. Carmel on this day 147 years ago and in the same heavenly garb on her final apparition at Fatima on October 13, 1917. We provide a thorough backgrounder on the meaning and magnificence of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel and its history, masterfully conveyed by Dom Prosper Gueranger in his masterpiece The Liturgical Year as well as the Act of Consecration to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in honor of today's Double Major Commemoration in a feature we have chosen to call The Lasting Magnificence, Grace, and Power of Our Lady of Mount Carmel
    BeneBull in the China Shop
    Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey filed three features this past weekend, that we weren't able to upload because of power outages and computer problems. His first is a follow-up to several articles he's recently written in which he ties in the modus operandi of BeneRatz' proximity to releasing his shunted letter to China and his misleading Summorum Pontificum Motu Proprio. Ratzinger has long been on board for "blaming the Church" for past sins while ignoring his own and those he's empowered both as head of the CDF and now the counterfeit conciliar "pope". It is necessary for him to wipe out what was in order to establish what will be and he'll sacrifice whatever he can to attain his Hegelian goals. In other words, the Church hasn't done enough and now he has the answers that, strangely, previous holy popes, Doctors and the early Fathers never would have thought of. Why? Because they're blatant heresy, that's why. Tom details in his article "Reconciliations" at the Price of Truth
    Snakes in the Taj Mahony
    In Tom's second article he clears away the filthy underbrush where the serpent crawls throughout the souls of Los Angelenos and misguided conciliar catholics throughout the country. The den of iniquity begins in the Archdiocese of LA and the most poisonous, deadly viper is the fatal apostate colubra Satanae Mahonyius. His fangs are concealed but his bite will paralyze souls and leave them totally devoid of any grace. He speaks always with forked tongue and now the question, how is he going to slither his way out of the scandalous bog he's sunk the west coast into. Tom exposes this slimy, scaly creature of the devil as we pray for Our Lady's heel to crush his head in the sense of eliminating his authority once and for all and to make reparation for the evil he has done in violating every commandment beginning with the First and running the gamut. The viper's pit is full of more of his venomous kind all up and down the coast and infiltrating every conciliar diocese from sea to slithering sea. Where is St. Patrick when we need him? Tom reveals the facts in his no-holds barred piece, The Six Hundred Million Dollar Man and His Friends
    Oh, Henry! St. Henry! Help us!
    Finally, in honor of the saint for July 15, the holy Emperor Saint Henry, Tom pays tribute both because he is Tom's patron saint by confirmation and because this saintly ruler upheld without compromise the Social Kingship of Christ the King. While Modern Rome turns to pagan Europe to save Christianity, they should turn to St. Henry and Eternal Rome, led by previous reliable Popes who laid it out in black and white on what each soul needed to do and what the state needed to do in order to work in harmony with God and truly attain temporal peace on earth. Recognizing Him as King, as St. Henry, St. Louis, and so many holy emperors honored by the Church did, is the only way to ever achieve peace and justice in God's eyes. Tom goes into detail in his essay on St. Henry, An Exemplar of Christ the King
    Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained
    Saturday was the Double Feast of The Seraphic Doctor, Saint Bonaventure, and due to a transformer being down in our neighborhood by "dry lightning" we lost power for over 15 hours and were not able to put this on until midday on Saturday. During the blackout what better thing to do than pray, especially since it happened just before leaving for the Fatima Rosary Procession downtown on the 13th of the month. Unable to because of the power outage, while we were praying the Sorrowful Mysteries, this editor's rosary broke in two places at the same time! Satan is indeed furious and we need today men of the caliber of St. Bonaventure who was a man full of "good fortune" from his earliest years. Humility was his virtue; his role model was St. Francis of Asissi, the holy founder who named him. He followed this man, continuing the ideals of the Franciscans, guiding them during turbulent times when growing pains created problems in the ranks and with various ecclesial authorities opposed to the Friars Minor. This Universal Doctor was one of the first saintly Cardinals of the Church. He was close friends with "The Angelic Doctor" St. Thomas Aquinas and the saintly king of France King Louis IX. He was the architect of the 2nd Council of Lyons and, fittingly, was called home by God immediately following completion of the Council. His work done on earth but continued through his writings and example; so much so that Saint Bonaventure is known as The Seraphic Doctor.
    Will the Madness Never End?!?
    With a detailed analysis of the CDF's spin on "subsists in" coming in tomorrow's issue by Griff Ruby (who has so expertly exposed Lumen Gentium for the heretical document it's always been, particularly in his masterful essay Down the Yellow Brick Road to Apostasy: The Lumen Gentium Syndrome), we bring you first Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey's response to the idiocy of William Levada's attempt of a recent "clarification" issued by the counterfeit conciliarists concerning the "proper" interpretation of Lumen Gentium. The "clarification" is nothing more than a reiteration of the "new ecclesiology" that has been critiqued so very well by His Excellency Bishop Donald Sanborn and Father Anthony Cekada. While not intending to be a thorough exegesis of Levada's "responses," which Tom will leave to Traditional clergy, the article reminds readers that Modernists believe that doctrine can "develop" in such a way as to place it in apparent contradiction, as they see it, with a previous teaching of the Catholic Church. Not to worry, of course. We can simply justify their positivistic assertions that "subsists" is the same as "is" and that heretical and schismatic churches and "ecclesial communities" have been "used by the Spirit of Christ as instruments of salvation." Ah, no. Heretical and schismatic churches are not instruments of salvation. Never have been, never will be. Tom clarifies in his Free to Lead Souls Astray

    Editor's Note: Many thought the fireworks were on Wednesday the Fourth of July, but the real fireworks came the following Saturday on 07-07-07 when the counterfeit imposter Benedict XVI continued his Hegelian game of synthesis-antithesis by issuing the long-overdue and filled with land-mines Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum. There have been many who are singing Te Deum's and bending over backwards to compliment Ratzinger. They're just ripe for the picking. Several have written that youtube has several ditties on it and practically for every traditional mass they show it is the true Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, not the indult of Angelo Roncalli. But blind bliss prevents them from realizing this. They'll see eventually, but right now they're blinded by the blitz which is exactly as Beneratz planned. Patronize the plebeians for awhile until they have no out. Bishop Bernard Fellay continued with his fence sitting, saying congratulations to Benedict while still issuing a "but" and yet, not a firm but. It would seem one can get sore fence-sitting. Robert Moynihan of Inside the Vatican filed a report titled, "The Old Mass Returns." No, Robert, it is not the old Mass because it's the indult and will be celebrated by men who aren't even priests. Heck, this editor might as well drive down to St. Patrick's and offer the Motu Mass. After all, I know more Latin than the current presider down there who's not a true priest. That's how ridiculous this whole thing is and tragic as well for those who are being duped. Over the next week and most likely beyond we'll hear about many "opinions" and "feelings" but that doesn't really amount to a hill of beans because faith is not about feelings, but about divine law and that very prerequisite makes this splashy Motu Proprio dry, bone dry on arrival and already disintegrating as well, so sadly, the resistance of so many who have stood so strong against Vatican II and the inherent heresies and the very men who enabled, perpetrated and perpetuated the apostasy. That is why below we present sane, practical, documented reasons why it's all full of hot air and cannot have any authority with God. And after all, isn't that Who really counts?
    With BeneRatz' Plan it will not be a Wonderful Life!
    If any one is ready to refute those who think the new "extraordinary Motu Mess" is the answer to their prayers, it would be Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey who knows Ratzinger's agenda so well and knows the Novus Ordo or "ordinary Mess" as well as anyone, having written his expert analysis in his book G.I.R.M. Warfare. He equates Ratzinger's "generous offer of a universal indult" to Mr. Potter's offer to buy George Bailey's soul in the classic film It's a Wonderful Life!. George resisted with vehemence for though Potter tried to lure him in through the smoke of his big cigar, Bailey, played by the incomparable Jimmy Stewart, knew better when push came to shove. Now traditionalists are being pushed and Tom illustrates how we must shove back in his article exposing "Summorum Pontificum" for what it is, a big cigar that will go up in smoke as he explains in Mister Potter's Big Cigar
    and Strictly by the Script
    and Motu Plus Two
    A fool and his processions are soon parted
      While numerous traditionalists are rejoicing momentarily over Ratzinger's Motu, there are several lessons to be learned and those who know issue the warning loud and clear: Be careful what you wish for. Many in the SSPX and others in the resist-and-recognize camp are now going to have to cease their resistance if they recognize any legitimacy of the issuance of Summorum Pontificum. And that is exactly what BeneRatz is counting on in depleting the opposition to his one world false religion. Divide and conquer has always been his motto and it shows through loud and clear in his motu. The Fathers at the TRADITIO Network, one of the leading voices in long saying "We told you so," lend their orthodox insight on the "Hoax of Summorum Pontificum" and the status quo of Ratzinger's letter, as well as his series over the last few weeks "What evil lurks beneath the New Indult?" which you can peruse at Traditio in July.
    Boiled, Baked, and Fried! Wobbly Frog Legs Anyone?
    Likewise, John Lane and John Daly, two of the leading apologists against the false popes, file their own reactions and document what's really behind this Motu if one only reads between the lines; if one only realizes what Catholic truth has always conveyed; if one only realizes that two wrongs can not make a right nor can a false pope make a rite that is pleasing to God. It's all smoke and mirrors, and the smoke is heating up as you can readily see if you step back from the stove. John Lane moderates a bevy of intelligent contributors who go on faith rather than feelings in illustrating how the vast majority don't realize they're already boiled and true Catholics need to pray that they will receive the grace to recognize they're just being tossed from the frying pan to the fire. They're already cooked. Several add their expertise at the John Lane's Aquinas Catholic Site where you can find the Bellarmine Forums
    To Build a Better Mass Trap!
    Father Anthony Cekada presents the palette that is Summorum Pontificum and reveals the true colors of Benedict's rainbow of inclusive diversity. While Fr. Moderator has said "the Motu Proprio has more holes than swiss cheese", Fr. Cekada the trap that awaits those who think a better Mass is in store. All Ratzinger has done is build a larger mass trap as Fr. Cekada writes, "Let the traditionalists who promoted it say what they will. For Ratzinger, the Motu Mass makes them merely one more color in his Vatican II rainbow." It is, as Father Cekada summarizes in his four page essay, "IN the long run, the Motu Mass will contribute to the steady decline of the post-Conciliar religion and the eventual death of Vatican II - Ratzinger's devil-baby, for which Limbo was never an option. At all this, we can only rejoice. In the short term, however, many gullible traditionalists will be lured to the Motu Mass because of convenience or the prospect of 'belonging to something bigger.' But the negative aspects of actually assisting at the Motu are pure poison." Father Cekads explains in his insightful essay, The Motu Mass Trap

    Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey has compiled a list of questions and answers to explain, as simply as possible, why it is absolutely necessary that all work together for the establishment here in the United States, and all over the world for that matter, of the Social Reign of Christ the King. That is the only way peace will ever be achieved on this earth and only through adherence to all Christ's holy Church has taught and is contained in the Sacred Deposit of Faith.

    Cyndi's Finally Home from the Hospital
    Thanks to all who have been praying for the editor's wife Cyndi Cain after she underwent her second surgery within three weeks last Thursday evening July 5. Hopefully the doctors have solved the problem of an abcess in her lower intestine which caused complications from her major gastrointestinal surgery on June 20th when they removed 75% of her large intestine. This second blockage in the smaller intestine prevented her from improving. After her doctor basically guinea-pigged her on various medicines on Friday and Saturday, Cyndi realized they only made her worse and she decided not to take them because of the side effects. The doctor on duty over the weekend was most understanding unlike the head surgeon. Guess what? She got better within a few days and was released last night. A steady dose of prayer is the best prescription for healing all ills. She expresses her appreciation for everyone's prayers and concern and vows, with God's graces, to be better than ever if it be God's will. It will take a few months before she can function fully and will not be able to climb stairs for at least six weeks which means daily Mass will be out until the Fall. She'll offer it up with prayer at home and offer any suffering for the reparation of souls - especially for those who have been duped into thinking Benedict has "freed the Latin Mass." The devil is so clever and Cyndi is so saddened that people will "believe a lie" as St. Paul foretold in 2 Thessalonians 2: 10.

    To die or not to die, that is the pivotal difference between martyrs and fence-sitters
    Today is the traditional feast of St. Thomas More, the King's Chancelor who would not budge in his loyalty to the true Successor of Peter no matter how much an earthly king promised. It is fitting then that Gabriel Garnica has filed an article whereby we can relate to the challenges More faced as well as another martyr of the Church across the channel a century before: St. Joan of Arc. Gabriel shows that temporal treasures are worthless in the spiritual realm and just how we live on earth and how we die will measure our worth when it comes to eternity. That is why looking to St. Thomas and St. Joan, whose feasts are just over a month apart just as they lived just over a century apart in medieval times, they both stood strong against corruption and collusion, and willingly gave their lives for God and their countries. It's all about never comproming our Faith no matter the lures. Gabriel explains in his column, Uncompromising Catholic Courage in the Face of Adversity
    We can never be independant if we depend in any way on the world, the flesh and the devil
    We bring you a redux of an article first written by Gabriel Garnica three years ago today in which he looks at the celebration of our nation's independence from Great Britain and concludes that no matter how much we proclaim independence and freedom, we can never be free if we subscribe to the world, the flesh and the devil. The only way to celebrate true freedom is in the fireworks of the heart, sparking the soul to burst with love for God in all things. No struggle for independence was ever achieved without the very attributes necessary to attaining holiness. The only difference was in motive and manner. God knows our hearts and those who don't realize this are the true fools, duds who will sputter and fizzle out. Only those who soar in alliance with Heaven's will can realize true independence. Gabriel explains in his redux column To Be Truly Independent, You Must Declare Your Dependence on God!
    Pope Pius XII warned of Communism Capsizing Catholics. Did Ratzinger listen? Not on your life or soul!
    Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey files a piece that is a follow-up to his recent A Betrayal Worthy of the Antichrist in which he exposes BeneRatz for the charlatan Judas he is. In this essay, Tom documents the words of Pope Pius XII who issued two encyclical letters about the situation facing Catholics in Red China. These papal letters call evil by its proper name and outline conditions that have not changed in the slightest since they were issued. Oh, the only thing that has changed is the conciliar Vatican's willingness to "play ball" with quisling "bishops" and "priests" in the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association. Pope Pius XII is reported to have said before he died, "After me, the deluge." Behold the deluge! Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us. That is Tom's cry as well and should be everyone of us in praying for the capsizing of the modern barque of conciliarism that in no way resembles the true Barque of Peter. Tom pinpoints the contradictions of His Holiness Pius XII and the imposter Benedict XVI in his essay After me, the Deluge!
    The "Chopsticks Chastizement" Cometh
    Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey illustrates so clearly why Benedict's latest "Motumultuous" should have every previous anti-sedevacantist penning apology letters to those who have stated without doubt that the conciliar popes and especially Joseph Ratzinger cannot be Catholic, let alone valid authorities because they have long ago apostasized. If Benny's scandalous concession to the Communists in Red China doesn't convince people that the Vatican 2 church is a false church then there is no hope they'll ever understand. His recommendations are akin to the Christians caving to the pagan Roman Emperors and offering incense so as not to hurt anyone's sensibilities. Ridiculous? Not as much as what modern Rome just issued in continuing the coercion and collusion for a one world order with a one world religion - that of the antichrist. Tom delves into the meaning in his masterful thesis in which he exposes the Hegelian hellian Joseph Ratzinger for what he is. A must read of Tom's meticulous application of previous reliable popes that condemn almost every action of the modern apostate imposters. Tom explains in A Betrayal Worthy of the Antichrist
    For the sake of your soul, make up your mind!
    Bishop Donald Sanborn has filed an excellent essay on breaking down the misnomer of sedevacantism being just a theological opinion, where, in fact, according to what holy Mother Church has always taught, the current fact that the Chair of Peter is truly vacant is a theological conclusion. Opinions can be dangerous and those who have been circulating false opinions masquerading as fact are the most dangerous whether they are conciliarists or anti-sedevacantism traditionalists. His Excellency breaks down the Five Errors of Opinionism and whether any are the correct position to hold. It comes down to whether the identity of a Pope could ever be a matter of opinion. The answer is a resounding no as you'll see in his breakdown in which he emphasizes that we cannot be on the fence for one cannot separate a true Roman Pontiff from the Roman Catholic Church. They are part of the whole. Opinion holds no sway when it comes to truth. Bishop Sanborn summarizes in his article The question of the pope: "Just an opinion?"
    Don't say you weren't warned. The Metz Syndrome surfaces again: Communism rules the conciliar fools!
    In light of Benedict's betrayal with his Letter to Red China and Tom's excellent proof of the fact that such a letter could not have come from a Catholic pope, but rather an antipope, yes even possibly an antichrist, we remind you that two years ago Atila Sinke Guimar„es weighed in on the charade going on between the conciliar church of modern Rome and the Communist People's Republic of China in which hypocrisy and apostasy on both parties' parts were and continue to be so apparent. It is all part of the bitter fruits of the Pact of Metz, all part of the abandonment of the apostolic universal mission to go into the world and preach the gospel to every creature. Sacred Scripture and Holy Mother Church have always taught that those who believe and are baptized into the Church Christ founded would be saved, those who do not will be condemned. From Atila's account of what the Vatican II church has been doing, which he has so expertly documented in his brilliant series Lamma Sabbacthani, the mission of saving souls no longer applies. Ergo, since this is directly contrary to all the truths which the Holy Catholic Church teaches and Christ can neither deceive nor be deceived, the church of modern Rome is an anathema as St. Paul has affirmed in Galatians 1: 8-10. There is no rhyme nor reason to what this two-headed dragon of modern Rome and Red China are doing in raising their ugly heads in persecuting and selling out the faithful and Taiwan except to be cooperators with the devil, not to mention mammon - personified in the atheistic communist government and policies of Red China and the corruption of the conciliar church. Can you say Betrayal of Christ? Atila, in his Bird's Eye View at Tradition In Action, documents the obvious signs with his column The Disastrous Cost of Vatican Ostpolik with China
