It really doesn't make a difference what Bergoglio says for he has no authority per Pope Paul IV's infallible decree Cum Ex Apostolatus Officio and Jorge's dislike for the Traditional Latin Mass is no surprise considering his Modernist Marxist track record, despite his fauning false humility. He, along with all the false CONciLIAR 'popes' fail to realize - or have blatantly ignored - Pope St. Pius V's infallible decree codifying the dogmatic decrees of Trent, specifically the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass that if anyone dared to alter what occurred on the altar they would incur automatic excommunication latae sententiae. Ergo, one who is excommunicated can never be a true pope. Ergo, wake up "Recognize and Resist" folks and realize the sedevacantists are right. Note also what he said above left. So true. Prime evidence: Vatican Two. For the decree that a holy Pope said the true Latin Mass must be said in perpetuity, see Quo Primum.

Cyndi Cain returns with a timely colloquy addressed to all Catholics on the essence of Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, but applying it to today for we are indeed engaged in a great civil war, not only in the state against the Marxist Obama Administration, but in the Church where seemingly true Catholics are greatly outnumbered, but so were Don Juan's armada at Lepanto and they had the secret weapon we too possess: the holy Rosary and a battalion of prayer warriors. Now it is left to the living to resist the Great Apostasy so that the dry martyrs living and dead have not done so in vain. We must all work together to purge the CONciLIAR church once and forever for the sake of souls as you'll see in Cyndi's Colloquium, titled - get it - The Getitpurged Address

Editor Michael Cain relates a correction he made at the request of an Air Force official to right the record. In doing so he noted we are living in a time when honor means little, one's word means nothing, and man lives according to what other men think with little regard for what their Almighty Creator thinks. The official agreed. How dense, how dumbed down have the masses become when they can't decipher St. Augustine's truth that wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it and right is right even if no one is doing it? Cain endeavors to explain this moral morass and why we will remain there on the menu of boiled frog if we do not leap from the stove of denial and connect the dots that lead to the truth of what is really going on. He reminds us of what is truly Stolen Honor

On this ninth Saturday in the Fifteen Saturdays Rosary Crusade, John Gregory shares the grueling thoughts of the Carrying of the Cross with the intention of Love of the Cross, carried by true Love. The time continuum between the Praetorium where the Jews screeched 'Crucify Him!', and the moment He arrived at the summit of Calvary could well have taken thirty minutes to an hour and a half. In this time, we have in the Via Crucis, several lessons we can garner from this interval, including His reunion with His Sorrowful Mother, the aid of Simon of Cyrene, the gentle charity of Veronica, the weeping of the women of Jerusalem, and three cruel falls along the way; each more crushing and exhausting. Despite all this, the question arises: John asks us to examine our hearts and souls to see if we have the spiritual stamina to keep up with Him? The Fourth Sorrowful Mystery: The Carrying of the Cross

Four years ago Stephen Grieve from England filed a series on proving how the Scriptures had foretold the Chair of Peter would be vacant in the end times and he pinpointed exactly how with his third installment which is the crux of his intention in the discernment of St. Paul's words in 2 Thessalonians 2: 6-7 on the "restrainer/withholder" - in Greek κατέχων. Grieve illustrated by deduction and logic that it could only be the Papacy and ergo the Pope. This makes perfect sense when you read his arguments and syllogism on how Sacred Scripture reveals that the Pope will remove himself from the Church and there will be no one in authority to abate the "Mystery of Iniquity" - the "man of lawlessness" who is commandeered by the devil himself as Stephen revealed Identity of the κατέχων Restrainer/Withholder = The Papacy/Pope

After the horrendous hedonistic display in Rio last month of the real con the CONciLIAR church is foisting on the world, especially the youth, and Mr. Bergoglio the unFrancis' calls for disorder to rebel against the hierarchy with basically a call for anarchy, it's time to revisit a sermon from Fr. Louis Campbell in which he brings home the point we all need to realize for make no mistake, it is a battle to the finish and the victor will only be those who remain ever loyal to Jesus Christ, Who has given us "the truth, the way, and the life" - Himself and His teachings through the infrangible tenets He established for His one, true, holy, Catholic and apostolic Church. To not fully accept these truths is to serve mammon, embodied in the three-headed dragon of the world, the flesh, and the devil. As today's Gospel so clearly defines: "No man can serve two masters." We must either fight for the Kingdom of Heaven or succumb to the fires of hell. Father explained in Fighting for the Kingdom

Saint Augustine is one of the greatest Doctors of the Church, one of the greatest single intellects ever. Like the Apostle St. Paul, he began as a notorious sinner, embracing heresy after heresy, but when grace finally touched him through the prayer and reparation of others, this Saul turned into a Paul and his cries for truth were mostly heard and responded to in Heaven by the relentless efforts and graces of his loving, persevering mother St. Monica and his mentor, the Bishop of Milan, the holy Doctor of the Church Saint Ambrose, who is credited with the conversion of this man from Hippo. Sadly today neither Augustine, his mother Monica nor Ambrose nor all the saints who passed through this veil of tears over the centuries, would recognize the CONciLIAR counterfeit church as Catholic. They would have denounced from the beginning the aggiornamento and "new springtime" as heretical and extremely harmful to souls. See Doctor of Grace

Dr. Frank Joseph, the indefatigable crusader for pro-life with no exceptions wrote for the DailyCatholic for several years. This column we present here capsulized what he is fighting and praying for: the liberation of the innocents in the womb by ending the intentional slaughter of babies in the womb and putting an end to the abortion mills who make millions on this industry of genocide. It was on January 22, 1973 when the Gates of Hell were opened and out slithered every venomous creature possible to infect generations that it was proper and their choice to eliminate generations to come. The venom of these vipers is deadly in The Snakepit of Abortion

If only we had been vigilant then we would have realized the destruction already underway in the mid-nineteenth century. The Blessed Virgin warned us and yet we did not listen. Now we reap what we have sown. We bring you the first article we ran by Bill R. Metallo, President of The Shrine of Our Lady of La Salette, because we all need to wake the masses to warn of this coming catastrophe prophesized by Our Lady at La Salette; to bring Vatican 2 Catholics back into the fold of the true Catholic Church; and to reveal the truth to Protestants and all false religions that NO ONE existing outside the one, holy and apostolic Catholic Church can have a share in eternal life. Bill highlights the Prophesies imparted one hundred and sixty-five and a half years ago that show only too shockingly clear How the Faith will be Lost

On this eighth Saturday in the Fifteen Saturdays Rosary Crusade, John Gregory provides inspiration on what the Crowning with Thorns means to Catholics and the intention of Love of Contempt. Not easy, but necessary for just as the Jews cried out in pride to patronize Pilate "We have no king but Caesar," so also we, who are true sons of God, must, in all humility, state unequivocally: "We have no King but Jesus." Where He is mocked, we offer humble prayer of reparation and expiation for these terrible sins against the Incarnate Word so cruelly tortured and disfigured. Thoughts to meditate on during this week as John presents a reflection on The Third Sorrowful Mystery: The Crowning With Thorns

In his last article for the DailyCatholic before he went into syndication, Gabriel Garnica filed a thought-provoking piece in reminding us that too many have discarded the necessary hairshirts that made saints out of sinners, men and women who deliberately avoided temporal comfort to make them more comfortable in knowing their quest to attain everlasting comfort was the only way to Heaven. They don't call those plush stuffed single sofas "lazy boys" for nothing! It all starts so innocently: this comfort, that convenience, this delight, that pleasure, and pretty soon, if we do not discipline our senses, our senses will rule and that leads to each and every one of the Seven Deadly Sins as Gabriel tweaked conscienses in asking If You Are Comfortable, You Are Not With God

When the venerable renowned Benedictine Abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger wrote The Liturgical Year there was no feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary for it was still considered merely the Octave Day of the Assumption, yet what he wrote for this day applies so well to the feast day established for the universal Church by His Holiness Pope Pius XII during the Second World War in 1942. Needless to say, in his heart the Prior of Solesmes Abbe Gueranger knew of the devotion to Mary's Most Pure Heart for His Holiness Pope Pius VI had already approved the feast for certain religious houses, most probably the Benedictines as well at that time in the early nineteenth century and he began his masterful work L'Annee Liturgique - The Liturgical Year in the mid-1800's. See The Spotless Virgin Queen of Heaven

Ten years ago Catharine Lamb filed an inspirational column that brough home the point quite well that there is no place like home and home is where the heart is. That heart is one with Christ in offering with the priest the propitiatory holy sacrifice of Calvary to the Father in an unbloody manner in the indefectible Mass decreed by the Council of Trent and codified by Pope St. Pius V as the Tridentine Mass or Apostolic Canonical Traditional Latin Mass. No matter how they wrap the New man-made Mass foisted on the faithful by Paul the Sick, it cannot hold a candle to the True Mass - "the most beautiful thing this side of Heaven." Catherine invites all to come home in The Tridentine Mass: When you know you're really Home!!!

Saint Bernard of Clairvaux was a truly dedicated man who turned his back on the world and built monasteries throughout western Europe and was the confidante of popes and kings, beggars and paupers. He was the main man in preaching the purpose of the Crusade to recover the holy land where Our Lord and Savior walked. Bernard traversed the continent stirring men through prayer and reason, never compromising the Truths and Traditions. He was responsible for the revival of the Cistercian Order. This holy and mystic Abbot from France composed one of the most beautiful prayers ever created the Memorare out of a thorough devotion to Our Lady. See more on this Crusading Hammer of Heretics

Cyndi asked four years ago if it is pride that keeps us so blaize about so many things, so apathetic in responding to help others spread the Gospel and True Faith amidst the sea of conciliar confusion, or is it a false assumption that we've got it made? She reminded all that such thinking can lead away from God, right into the traps set by the wily evil one who, as St. Peter warned us, goes about like a roaring lion seeking whomever he can to devour - especially those in the Traditional movement, especially true priests and bishops. The devil will use every tool he has to bring us down. We have to be on our guard at all times and Cyndi reminded us of the ruler we have that should clear all confusion: the infrangible tenets of the infallible dogmatic Council of Trent. That is our barometer that we can best gage on our knees. She explained in her lesson Pride and Lukewarmness Lead to the Abyss

On this seventh Saturday in the Fifteen Saturdays Rosary Crusade, John Gregory shares his reflections on the Scourging at the Pillar and ties in the intention of Patience. By our sins we scourge our dear Lord anew. Do we take pleasure in such masochism to our souls and to pure Love that we would continue to beat Christ? He is so patient with us. Why? Because by tending to our souls, and examining our words, actions and thoughts at the healing font of Divine Mercy - the Confessional - we receive the salve of salvific Sanctifying Grace. Through the Sacrament of Penance we can put a halt to the scourging, and apply dabs of sincere love to close and comfort those terrible wounds on His precious flesh; wounds we helped open. Thoughts to meditate on during this week as John presents a reflection on The Second Sorrowful Mystery: The Scourging at the Pillar

Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey shook down the thunder with this article in the immediate aftermath of 9-11 and it is important to give the reader a look back and how few things have changed for he nailed the reasons why the demonic devastation occurred and, fearfully, will occur again, because we have not heeded God and His holy mandates. Tom followed this with an update which reaffirmed the necessity of establishing the Social Kingship of Christ in every nation, beginning with our own. This can be realized only by obeying fully and faithfully what Our Lady asked at Fatima. There is no other way!! After nine years shouldn't we have seen that? Just look at the feud building between Christians and Muslims. Those who are not with Christ are against Him. It's as simple as that as Tom explained in We've Done This to Ourselves!

For the Fourth Glorious Mystery of the Assumption reflection John Gregory focuses on His Holiness Pope Pius XII's decree in proclaiming the Dogma on November 1, 1950 with his encyclical Munificentissimus Deus. John takes this papal decree and divides it with the first part applying to the Fourth Mystery of the Rosary on the Assumption of Our Lady into Heaven. The belief of this dogmatic fact was long held by the Magisterium of the Church from the very time of the Blessed Mother being lifted up into Heaven, yet never fully proclaimed as a definitive Dogma until Pius, in complete harmony with all the authentic bishops of the Church, decreed it. This inspiring papal decree is the compendium for this meditation. In honor of this month of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, he shares his reflection on The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven

The renowned and venerable Benedictine Abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger weighs in on the Dormition of the Blessed Virgin Mary on this vigil of her being assumed into Heaven by her divine Son. He writes: "What in this dawn before which the brightest constellations pale? Laurence, who has been shining in the August heavens as an incomparable star, is well nigh eclipsed and becomes but the humble satellite of the Queen of Saints, whose triumph is preparing beyond the clouds. Mary stayed on earth after her Son's Ascension, in order to give birth to His Church; but she could not remain for ever in exile. Yet she was not to take her flight to Heaven until this new fruit of her maternity had acquired the ...more on the Dormition of the BVM

Two years ago John Gregory joined the chorus of those trying to wake the thunders and roust Traditional Catholics from their stupor. The same goes for the shepherds who we have urged numerous times to set aside their differences and come together for the sake of souls, especially in this time when the SSPX is in such turmoil and confusion. So far all has been met with lukewarm silence. John does his best to urge both clergy and laity on and provides a formula for the bishops to follow. It's not as difficult as it seems but the more they procrastinate, the more difficult do they make it, not only for converting conciliar Catholics back to the truths and traditions of holy Mother Church, but in keeping their congregations from being disillusioned and opting to become home-aloners. That is the sad truth for it is the bishops who are allowing the division by their stubbornness to come together. John provides a solution if only the bishops would respond to the question: What should Traditional Catholics Do?

The feast of St. Clare is also the date when His Holiness Pope Pius XII issued his Encyclical Humani Generis in which he warned Catholics of the false opinions and errors threatening to undermine the holy Faith. A few months later on November 1 His Holiness would declare the Dogma of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, body and soul into Heaven with his encyclical Munificentissimus Deus. It would be the Last Infallible Proclamation from the Seat of Peter. Since that time nothing has been spoken ex cathedra. We can see how those in charge today totally ignored his sage words of Humani Generis and furiously forged ahead with their agendas so that when His Holiness passed away on October 9, 1958, all hell would break loose and did with the Modernists gaining control and eclipsing the very Church Christ established on earth with a counterfeit ape that has done everything in its power to destroy the Truths and Traditions of holy Mother Church with the origins of "aggiornamento" in aiding the prince of the world to gain countless souls for God's chief adversary, causing Heaven to weep how the wolves in sheep's clothing have totally pulled the wool over the flocks' eyes as Papa Pacelli had warned in his encyclical Humani Generis

On this sixth Saturday in the Fifteen Saturdays Rosary Crusade, we begin the Sorrowful Mysteries as we focus on the intention of contrition for our sins. John Gregory presents the scenario on how much Our Lord begged the father for such. There in the Garden He was alone for even His Apostles could not watch one hour with Him. How lonely it must have been, how harrowing the agony to see our sins and transgressions. How can we ease His suffering? By resolving not to place ourselves in the occasions of sin; by being part of the hope and light that sustained Him and encouraged Him to continue His course for He was a man, like us in every way, save for sin. Why, oh, why do we persist in offending the Son of God? And yet, while we still expect God to do so much for us, are we willing to spend even an hour a day with Him and for Him? Thoughts to meditate on during this week as John presents a reflection on The First Sorrowful Mystery: The Agony in the Garden

This holy Cure of Ars holds nothing back in exacting a thorough examination of our souls, consciences and habits. By and large Traditional Catholics live their daily lives free of mortal sin, but how many of us seriously take the Cure of Ars' words seriously enough to move out of whatever comfort zone we are in at the present and strive to love God more, to be more aware of His role for each of us, and to manifest our choice of God over the world? That is a question St. Jean Marie Vianney asks. How will we answer? His words are as applicable today, even moreso, than in his time as parish vicar in the post French Revolution days of the first half of the 19th century, and onee thing remains the same as he speaks On the Lukewarmness of Souls

Twelve years ago Atila Sinke Guimaraes filed a most revealing piece that triggered a tsunami of investigation and resulted in discovering the real truth and why the CONciLIAR church is a false church and not Catholic. It answered the questions we had on why the CONciLIAR church had been so silent about the travesties of Communism? Why? Angelo Roncalli had sold out to the very enemy Our Lady had warned against at Fatima and we see it repeating today with the heretics of Modernism who have sat invalidly on the throne of Peter ever since with their syncretic bafflegab that is filled with ambiguity and tremendous danger to souls. It is the same in the United States where we have sat idly by while Barack Hussein Obama sells out our country by making a pact with the enemy, be they Communists or Infidels. This article is an eye-opener for anyone who has been living in a bubble. The Pact of Metz

Mario Derksen contributed articles to the DailyCatholic for several years with his Traditional Insights Columns. In fact he was the first sedevacantist to grace these pages. Yet, his signature work would come later in a 100 page rebuttal to the SSPV's Bishop Clarence Kelly in refuting false accusations and assuring with unmitigated proof that His Excellency Bishop Pierre Martin Ngo-dinh-Thuc was not only authentic but those he consecrated were also totally valid. Mario's concise work will go a long way in enlightening Catholics in waking them up to where the True Church really is and will begin to work towards that true unity we all desire for Christ's One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church that is definitely not in Modernist Rome. Mario presents the printed and video of his presentationThe SSPV and the Thuc Bishops

This editorial was filed two and a half years ago and becomes more pertinent with every passing day because souls are weakening, vulnerable to the roaring lion who is satan, going about the world seeking the ruin of souls and devouring whomever he might because man has become so pliable to the platitudes of the world, the flesh and the devil. Editor Michael Cain makes an impassioned plea to the true bishops and priests to heal the hurts which begins by burying the hatchets. If they can't do that, there won't be any trees to preen because they will have fallen. That is the crux of his Open Letter to the Traditional Bishops who are all we have left during this Great Apostasy, so evident every day in Modernist Rome and in the aftermath of the syncretic WYD where so many have been dumbed down to really think all that hoopla was Catholic. Where are our true Bishops to save souls? Cain pulled no punches in the State of the Soul Address

Twelve years ago Timothy Duff wrote this for the Reign of Mary and Tim republished it on these pages in 2005. It is an excellent primer to help your friends who are trapped in the Novus Ordo establishment to better understand why the New Mess is not from Christ nor from the only Church He established on earth. Tim shows very, very clearly why it is not Catholic! We have divine revelation and tradition to prove this point along with the infallible decrees of past true reliable Popes who were truly Christ's chosen Vicars on earth whereas the men who have occupied the Chair of Peter over the past fifty plus years are imposters who are not Catholic, yet have used their invalid authority to try to destroy the Church by altering what Jesus set in stone upon the Rock of Peter. Tim explains in The Church is Not Above Christ

John Gregory presents an inspiring piece on Saint Dominic, the extirpator of heresy, who is the ideal on how we can extrapolate today those heretics far worse than in the time when the founder of the Order of Preachers walked the earth for holy Mother Church. How do we know of the heretics today? The very words of Sacred Scripture expose these heretics such as the CONciLIAR false 'popes' from Roncalli through Bergoglio, by their own words that makes them apostates far more devious than the Albigensians who ravaged the Church in the thirteenth century. Heaven bestowed the powerful weapon of the Rosary to St. Dominic to fight heresies. Today that weapon must be used all the more fervently if we are to defeat the Modernists who subscribe to what Pope St. Pius X called the "synthesis of all heresies." John provides the evidence in The Receptor of the Rosary to be the Extirpator of Heresies

On this fifth Saturday in the Fifteen Saturdays Rosary Crusade, we focus on the intention of true wisdom which helped guide Mary and Joseph back to the Temple where their divine Son was imparting true wisdom and amazing those who heard Him for the first time. Who was this marvel? John Gregory presents a reflection on this mystery, which marks the final public appearance of Jesus from the time He was twelve until He reached thirty. In this mystery in the Temple we see the relationship between Mother and Son. In Mary's few words we see expressed the loving and concerned motherly compassion that so well defines her role for us as her children today, and in her divine Son's reply is laid out the mission Christ will undertake as John shows in The Fifth Joyful Mystery: The Finding of the Child Jesus in the Temple

The holy Doctor of the Church Saint Alphonsus Liguori founded an order dedicated to redeeming souls and he wrote volumes during a time when the enlightenment was already threatening the foundations of the Church. He vowed never to waste a moment and never did. He was the outstanding moral theologian who held the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as the greatest gift any Catholic could partake in. He foretold the very crisis the Church is suffering today when he prophesied, "The devil has always attempted, by means of the heretics, to deprive the world of the Mass, making them precursors of the antichrist, who, before anything else, will try to abolish and will actually abolish the Holy Sacrament of the altar, as a punishment for the sins of men, according to the prediction of Daniel 'And strength was given him against the continual sacrificer'." Alphonsus, through a thorough knowledge of the Faith, the cavalier attitude already permeating the Church and through messages he himself received from Heaven, knew that day would come when, just as Our Lord foretold in Matthew 24: 15, the "abomination of desolation" would occur. He was truly the Keeper of the Moral Compass

This one of the most landmark series we have ever published and the credit goes to Griff Ruby, who has succeeded in proving one of the greatest arguments to expose the very point of how, when, what, where, who and especially why modern Rome broke away from Eternal Rome. We have compiled his six-part installments into one compendium so you can see all the components and nuances and undeniable facts that prove Griff's point as he takes us past the spin right through the skin to the bare bones and then fleshes out what really happened in 1964 as a result of what John XXIII began with the opening of Vatican II on October 11, 1962. He lays it out in Down the Yellow Brick Road to Apostasy: the Lumen Gentium Syndrome
