July 2009 (july2009.htm)

As we head into our Annual Summer Hiatus, editor Michael Cain alerts all that we need to batten down the hatches, man the ramparts, and prepare for battle for satan and his legions are marching on us with everything they have whether it comes from a Godless government that is fast becoming a fascist-communist oligarchy or from in-fighting within our own ranks or our own families. Satan knows our every weakness, but God knows and can provide our strengths to counter the evil one, but we have to want to. We have to love Him so much we'll do anything we can to further the Faith, even to giving our very lives so that others may attain eternal life as well. Isn't that the only goal we should have in mind, getting as many souls on our side? That would be Heaven's side if our hearts are true. To do that, it begins with at least ten just men, which, in referencing "men" includes humankind, for we will not be bullied into political correctness, but rather stand by Catholic correctness. It's necessary to remind all that one can't do it all, it takes at least ten and many, many, many times that to amass an army that can counter the assaults that will be launched against those who stand for Christ and His Truths. Will you stand firm or will you retreat? That is a question we must all be prepared to answer. It takes wisdom to know and grace to follow through as he explains in his commentary Ten Just Men

Griff Ruby sets aside his polemics on scholastic dishonesty and his series on sedevacantism to ask readers to use August to focus on improving their meditation. With the overload of information inundating us these days from every medium that most portends doom and gloom, a retreat into a contemplative zone can do wonders for one's soul and psyche. During these dog days of summer, why not try relaxing our minds by turning inward through meditation to converse with truly man's best friend ever: God. He asks us to meditate not in the sense of eastern mysticism, but in the manner the Church asks us to pray, through contemplative communication with Him by blotting out worldly things. We, who are finite, talk to Him so much, and yet we don't seem to take the time to hear what the Infinite has to say to us. How can we steer souls, beginning with our own, if we don't listen to the Instructor, the Supreme Admiral to guide us over the rough and turbulent sea of life? Open your ears and heart, and the mind will focus on things not of this earth, but of what God wants. Try it, you'll like. So will the Triune God Who so wants you to shut up and listen. Isn't it time we all start really using that God-given mass of potential between our ears? It's the way saints are made. Griff lays out the simple formula in his article On Meditation

Cyndi Cain returns after seven months to share a lesson we can all use during these hazy, lazy days of summer when the sun is the hottest and when the Son is not necessarily too cool with our lacksadaisical attitudes that more readily represent the cultural icon of pulp fiction Alfred E. Neuman, "What Me Worry?" Yes, we should worry if we are not putting our hearts, souls, minds, time, talents and treasures to 100% use for Christ and His holy Church, so afflicted in these times. Cyndi asks 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 reminds 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 reminds 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 explains in her lesson Pride and Lukewarmness Lead to the Abyss

Scott Montgomery provides an interesting essay on how liberalism has gone from conforming to Catholic truth in promoting nonviolent modification of political, social, and economic institutions to assure the dignity of the human being in respect to how God intended for the family unit to what today, a half century or more later, illustrates how much God has been left out of the equation, snuffed out by a radical agenda of modern Protestantism that gives concession to sin, both its tolerance and diversity, ushering in every form of abuse that increasingly denies both God's natural and supernatural laws and, consequently denies Christ as King of all nations. Today liberalism represents the bad fruits of freedom from tradition and authority, the adjustment of religious beliefs to scientific conceptions, and the development of spiritual capacities that make man god. A New Age has dawned. With liberalism today, who needs God since all men are gods? Now you see why we're in the mess we are. Scott points to poignant statements by the Dominican Fr. Vincent McNabb, as well as Popes Leo XIII and Pius XI in the need to reassert the Social Kingship of Christ which liberalism has endeavored to snuff out. Scot explains in his essay Liberalism and the Catholic Faith

While the commentary this week is not about hornets or wasps, though they can be a nuisance during the summer, it deals with another kind of wasp - the White Anglo Saxon Protestant, which, because of the similarities in picking and choosing, would include conciliar Catholics. They are a vanishing breed thanks to the communist and racist agenda of one Barack Hussein Obama and his slew of red czars he has been appointing at an alarming rate. There is another species that is on the endangered list: The Traditional Catholic. We are, basically, a dying breed and we must pollinate the polemics of the true Catholic Faith so that future generations will carry the torch for it will never die. Christ has promised that. Yet, satan prowls the earth, seeking the ruin of souls. The only exterminator for his poisonous sting that comes either from our out-of-control government or the collapsing corrupt counterfeit church of conciliarism is to put on the protective guard of Sanctifying Grace, available only through the salvific honey of the true Sacraments administered by true consecrated priests. Otherwise, you're going to get stung! We also remind all those who want to keep the pests at bay, to help those who are not afraid to tackle the hives, not afraid to disturb the hornets' nest. It takes money to rid the dangerous bugs and protect souls with the insecticide of Catholic Truth. Cain explains in his editorial, The Sting

To enhance each Sunday's Epistle and Gospel we present this special feature provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. We publish it here in conjunction with the Epistle and Gospel for the Sunday Mass, with the cogent comprehensive Catholic Commentary penned by Father George Leo Haydock. For the Eighth Sunday after Pentecost and the Feria days this week, the theme is giving an account of one's responsibilities, one's stewardship over those things God has entrusted each with. This means abiding by His laws and not being slaves to the world, the flesh and the devil for to give in to that triumverate of trouble will punch one's almost sure ticket to accommodations with Mammon who is so cunning, especially in the midst of those children of the light who are not on their guard, not tending to their duties and not vigilant to the Holy Ghost's promptings. "Give an account of thy stewardship"

Griff dares to broach a subject long brooded over, but too long put on the shelf. While the title of his article might stir controversy of a topic that has been broached by several in the past, only to die for reasons such as lack of follow-up to clique control to uncredible sources to "we can't do that", many will agree the time has come. Fifty years have come and gone and where are we? Much further away from all the possibilities that would have afforded a normal, by-the-book papal conclave. Why? Because the current College of Cardinals long ago became apostates; because rogue "popes" are appointing themselves and further dividing the Traditional movement; because any credibility the Siri Theorists might have had, wanes with each year with no proof ever offered of a true successor to Siri, if indeed, he was truly elected in the Sistine; and because current eligible, valid, worthy successors of the Apostles are afraid to move forward with the only logical step man can take in order to assist God in manifesting the miracle we are all waiting for: the Restoration of holy Mother Church with a true Pope and the official universal condemnation of all that has gone down over the past five decades. We need God to guide us, but He needs man to do His work. It's time to seriously discuss what must be done. Griff lays out the steps in Let's Have a Conclave

To enhance each Sunday's Epistle and Gospel we present this special feature provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. We publish it here in conjunction with the Epistle and Gospel for the Sunday Mass, with the cogent comprehensive Catholic Commentary penned by Father George Leo Haydock. For the Seventh Sunday after Pentecost, quite possibly the most powerful of affirmations is given by our Lord and Savior that it isn't that difficult to tell who are the false prophets and heretics for by their fruits we shall know them. There is nothing ambiguous about Christ's words that a bad tree will be chopped down and rooted out, then cast into the fire. What other kind of fire would the Son of Man be talking about in His parable but eternal hellfire? It dovetails with St. Paul's words in the epistle that the wages of sin is death, as in mortal sin equals death to eternal life; and that eternal life is available only through the grace of God, our salvation merited by Christ's offering Himself on the Cross, shedding every last drop of His Most Precious Blood for us. A most fitting commentary to the Epistle and Gospel for the Seventh Sunday after Pentecost in these tumultuous times. Those who do not yield good fruit and remain unrepentant will be cast into the eternal fire

Do you recognize the hand pounding the cruel nail into Christ's left hand? That's Mel Gibson's own hand and he insisted he do that for his film because of his own past sins as Mel so correctly pointed out what killed Christ. Our sins. How much more it must hurt Our Lord today in light of Mel's shameless and scandalous tryst. Editor Michael Cain shares some of the sentiments of a few influential Traditional Catholics in imploring Mel to quit being a Henry VIII and return to his roots of faith and family. While one must take responsibility and accountability for one's mistakes - no matter how expensive such might be and with Mel it very well could be the most expensive divorce settlement in Hollywood history, and that's going some! - there is still time for him to redeem himself and his marriage. For just as Mel fooled all the pundits with his masterpiece The Passion of The Christ five years ago, it's time for a rebirth of that same Mel, time for him to be contrite, to put away the harlot that came between he and his wife of 29 years Robyn. He should grovel at the feet of the love of his life who, in Mel's own words, he called "his rock". Few find a wife as loyal as she, and yet, just as Henry VIII cast off the loyal Catherine of Aragon for the feisty and ambitious courtesan Anne Boleyn in a move that forever changed the landscape of Catholicism, Mel can go one way or the other. What hangs in the balance is the survival of his soul. Mel needs to make amends but only he can do it. It's time for him to cease the parading before the paparazzi and posturing on all the talk shows and truly put on sackcloth and ashes in repentance for the scandal that he has caused both before God and man, especially his own family and Traditional Catholics everywhere whom he has gravely let down and betrayed by his continually carrying on in public. Cain explains in his editorial, Sin: The Devil's Lethal Weapon

To enhance each Sunday's Epistle and Gospel we present this special feature provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. We publish it here in conjunction with the Epistle and Gospel for the Sunday Mass, with the cogent comprehensive Catholic Commentary penned by Father George Leo Haydock. For the Sixth Sunday after Pentecost we are reminded that through baptism we die to sin and are crucified with Christ, confident in knowing that if we are faithful to Him He will always be faithful to us, and, as St. Mark's Gospel illustrates in the loaves and the fishes, there is no end to His mercy and promises through the two great sacraments which our Lord has placed as the priority for salvation: Baptism and the Holy Eucharist, assuring we will always have nourishment for the soul as we see in Fr. Haydock's cogent comments for the Sixth Sunday after Pentecost Haydock Commentary If we die to sin we will always be nourished

Griff resumes the second half of his book, if you will, on totally debunking Feeneyism and taking on others who have used the art of scholastic dishonesty to further their own agenda and mislead readers, leading them away from the true Faith by fostering error and even heresy. In his thirteenth installment, he returns to the source of Feeneyism, the Boston Jesuit Fr. Leonard Feeney who established a cult by denying Baptism of Blood and Baptism of Desire, effectively establishing a Jansenistic position in taking Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus to the extreme and sitting in judgment where even saints, Popes and Doctors of the Church never ventured. His hypothesis are not only warped, but wrapped in dishonesty as Griff details in exposing this proud priest who sought to deceive through the art of scholastic dishonesty, particularly in his book which Griff breaks down, Bread of Life. What Feeney has provided is rather molded wheat that cannot be digestible to Catholics for it can be toxic to the soul as he identifies in his thirteenth installment Begin at the Beginning

To enhance each Sunday's Epistle and Gospel we present this special feature provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. We publish it here in conjunction with the Epistle and Gospel for the Sunday Mass, with the cogent comprehensive Catholic Commentary penned by Father George Leo Haydock. For the Fifth Sunday after Pentecost the theme is that if one is reconcilied with his fellow man then he will always be reconciled with God for he will remain in the state of grace,which is necessary for participating in the sacramental fullness of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. If we do not comply with our Lord's commands, the consequences are catastrophic as we see in Fr. Haydock's cogent comments for the Fifth Sunday after Pentecost Haydock Commentary Make amends with thy brother before partaking at the altar

We publish here a letter originally sent to Tradition in Action regarding their slur of sedevacantists (June 16) and which the editor of The DailyCatholic took to task in his editorial of June 29, "A Question No One Has Yet to Answer." We discovered from the writer of the following letter that it had been sent to TIA well before our editorial was released and yet, despite TIA's claim that they print opposing views in their "What People Are Commenting" section, they show a tendency to assimilate with the mainstream media in being most selective of what they posit as opposition, effectively silencing any stable, reasonable responses such as Patricia Beck's and, when posting opposing views, use extreme examples which, by such association, castigates the entire group of sedevacantists. It's a clever trick of biased and, yes, dishonest journalism. Patricia's letter illustrates that she, like thousands of Traditional Catholics, is not the "progressive, proud, protestant" TIA depicted sedevacantists as being, but rather a solid, sincere Catholic who follows all holy Mother Church has taught and strives for holiness by attending Masses that are totally free of conciliar corruption. She wonders why, with all Atila and Marian have written confirming this corruption, why they remain so stubborn and vindictive against those who follow the precepts of the Vatican Council (the only legitimate Council also known as Vatican I) reinforcing the fact that, as the Mystical Bride of Christ, She cannot teach error. Why, one wonders, did not TIA publish her letter? Could it be because they have no answer but to admit she's right? She rightly says, Shame On You, TIA

On this Double of the First Class Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, editor Michael Cain points out how our focus is on the first Pope and the welfare of the Mystical Bride of Christ entrusted to Cephus by Our Lord in St. Matthew 16: 18-19. That welfare is gravely hindered today because we are in those times Christ foretold in St. Matthew 24. The question is: what are we doing about it? Sadly, most are complacent, falling into that vial lukewarm category so castigated by the Lord in Apocalypse 3: 16. They resort to going along with whatever comes along because that's the easiest way. However, those striving towards sainthood don't choose the easy way; rather they opt for the most expedient way to holiness. Despite the fact we all strive towards holiness, we all have a fallen human nature. We are all sinners. And in that, the devil is having a field day by creating diversions in diversity in both temporal and spiritual matters. Nowhere is this more evident than in the disunity he sows within the Traditional Catholic movement, pitting one against the other. When will we bury the hatchets and seek the common ground of Catholic Truth in our fight against those who oppose just that? When those who pine for the good ol' days, those who complain about the sacrilegious travesties in the New Order, those, such as TIA, who claim exclusivity in the Resistance movement, and dissident 'home-aloners' all realize that the nearest sedevacantist chapel is where they will all discover that the sacramental life of the Church is alive and well. And why not? The Church has provided as Christ promised. Cain explains in his editorial, A Question No One Has Yet To Answer

To enhance each Sunday's Epistle and Gospel we present this special feature provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. We publish it here in conjunction with the Epistle and Gospel for the Sunday Mass, with the cogent comprehensive Catholic Commentary penned by Father George Leo Haydock. Today for the Fourth Sunday after Pentecost, the theme is those creatures swimming in the sea of fallen human nature in this world and who can only be rescued through the grace of God via those He has sent to reel in souls as fishers of men. St. Peter is the chief fishermen and, despite his temerity, our Lord knew the mettle of the man He tabbed to head His Church on earth and had no compunction in commanding His disciples to "launch out into the deep" for souls, not fish as we see in Fr. Haydock's Commentary for the Fourth Sunday after Pentecost, "Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets..."

Griff Ruby completes his three-part series on the Anatomy of a Papal Resignation in which he provides the DNA, all forensics, you name it, as to the proof that the Sedevacantists are right. The problem is, like the famous scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark, "they've been digging in the wrong places." Now Griff presents the Motherlode to free all from the Well of Souls. In the past we have all given reasons why we profess the conciliar 'popes' cannot be Catholic and therefore cannot be a true Popes. We have quoted sources ad infinitum, cited past Councils, true reliable Roman Pontiffs, saints, even Doctors of the Church, but many times those who oppose sedevacantism merely fire back with quotes from other saints or Councils or even Doctors of the Church, several times, we might add, taking them out of context, to try to prove that the Chair cannot be empty. And what do we arrive at? A stalemate where each side believes their argument trumps the other. Until now! Here Griff provides failsafe proof that cannot be denied, failsafe evidence that once Paul VI signed off on Lumen Gentium he visibly resigned from the post of Roman Pontiff. The point being very simple really, that, considering he became at that moment the leader of a new man-made organization, all who have succeeded him as supposed 'popes' including John Paul I, John Paul II and Benedict XVI are mere leaders of this other new organization, and, ergo, have been no more Catholic popes than Caiphas, Mohammed, John Calvin, John Smith or the Dalai Lama. It is no longer an "opinion", but fact. Griff proves his point in part three The Proof

To enhance today's Epistle and Gospel we present this special feature provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. We publish it here in conjunction with the Epistle and Gospel for the Sunday Mass, with the cogent comprehensive Catholic Commentary penned by Father George Leo Haydock. Today for the Third Sunday after Pentecost, we encounter one of the most oft quoted passages of Sacred Scripture, the eighth verse of chapter five of the first epistle of St. Peter whereby Christ's chosen first Pope employs the imagery of the devil being like a roaring lion always on the prowl to devour souls. That is why it ties in so well with today's Gospel of the rejoicing of one sinner returning to the fold. With satan roaming it truly is a victory worth celebrating when a soul is saved from this savage unearthly beast. For the Haydock Commentary of the Second Sunday after Pentecost's Epistle and Gospel, see Saving the sheep from the roaring lion

While we normally focus on things spiritual and on the true Faith, editor Michael Cain devotes his editorial today to the very fact that citizens from sea to shining sea are fed up with what the government at the state and federal levels are doing. Their malfeasance has awakened the sleeping giant that is the American spirit. We're mad as hell over what has happened and would never occurred had we all been watchful. With our country turning toward Marxism faster than you can say "Groucho", it's time to get involved now or forever rue having any peace of mind, body, or even the soul. For that is what is at stake. Through a fast-growing grassroots movement, called the Honor In Office Act, we can turn a stifled garden into goodness for and by the people by weeding out dishonest politicians and special interest groups whose shell games, sneak attacks and hidden agendas have slithered through and become law, many times unjust ones at that, without our knowledge. This is tyranny, and we have but one last-gap effort to save our checks and balance system which is tilting so badly to the left right now. They are OUR representatives. They WORK FOR US. It's time we have some clout to hold them to account in returning decency and God to the equation. We will not render to Caesar what does not belong to Caesar or any other dishonest politician or unjust law. It is time to raise the Navy Jack, "Don't tread on me" and take action. Cain explains in his editorial, The Treasured Turf of Freedom

At a time when the Roman Empire was crumbling and decaying from within, God rose up a Rock-Solid Column of the Church in the holy Deacon and Doctor Saint Ephrem to preserve souls from the perversion that consumed so many.

Today is the feast of the holy Doctor of the Church Saint Ephrem the Deacon, and in honor of this saintly Syrian, who was the second chronologically to receive such a title following Saint Athanasius, we present a brief profile of this early luminary of the Church. St. Ephrem was beloved by his people and one called the "Prophet of his people" and a deacon who combated heretical sects and Roman emperors, not by raising his voice in anger, but through Syriac poetry in winning the people to the Faith. His works are integral to the Syrian Church. In adherence to yesterday's gospel, Ephrem reached out and cared for the least of his brethren leaving the 99 to go in search of the one who was lost. This dedication to the will of God and uncompromisingly living the Gospel to win souls to the Lord show why he was a clarion of clarity to those suffering from the confusion of the Arian heresy. He is affectionately known as the Harp of the Holy Ghost

Griff continues his three-part series on what would be entailed for a papal resignation. His second installment proves the precedence has been set for Popes to resign not only directly, but also by other means such as acceptance of their being deposed. Of course, there are many who say a pope cannot resign, that he is elected for life. That is one of the arguments that many launch in trying to negate the possibility that there can be a vacancy on the throne of Peter whether the duration is nine days, four years, or 50 years, or even more. Of course, throughout the history of the Church such a vacancy exists everytime a Pope dies and this is precedence set by holy Mother Church and is called by Her, sede vacante. During these times between the elections of a true successor to replace a true predecessor, there is no living true Pope to act as the Authority reserved for the Office of the Primacy of Peter. During such time Ecclesia supplicet. That is the Church supplies in continuing to administer the holy sacraments and carrying on in the same manner done as when there was a true visible Pope on the Throne of Peter. Setting aside all bizarre precedents that can create chaos, there is an accurate and very viable precedence that has been established more than several times when Roman Pontiffs have resigned or been deposed. The True Church survived and flourished during such time and even during the times of antipopes as well. Griff provides the very circumstances that prove the precedence in part two The Precedence

Nearly 1,700 years ago St. Basil the Great defined the condition of the counterfeit church of conciliarism today: "You have the Bishops against you. That proves that they are all against the Church."

In back to back Doctors of the Church, with June 13 being St. Anthony's feast, the next day June 14 the Church celebrates another of the magnificent luminaries God rose up in the 4th century. The holy bishop and Doctor of the Church Saint Basil the Great also faced the intense persecutions and calumnies of the Arian bishops and suffered greatly, never complaining and living a life of austerity while his fellow Arian bishops lived high on the hog. Like his good life-long friend and fellow Doctor of the Church St. Gregory Nazianzen, he,too, came from holy stock and had two brothers who became bishops; a father, mother and sister who became saints. This Bishop of Caesarea is one of the few, along with Popes St. Leo I and St. Gregory I and St. Albert to be given the august title "Magnus" - great. For a profile of this holy Bishop and Doctor, see Orator of Orthodoxy

John Gregory has provided the Haydock Commentary for the Second Sunday after Pentecost in which Christ tells of the parable of the man who compelled his servants to summon many of his friends to banquet. Yet the ways of the world prevented many from attending. This very point is brought home in today's Gospel and commentary that those who were invited and declined are those who reject the graces God gives and when the time comes to sit down with the Lord, they will be refused admittance for they lack the proper garment of sanctifying grace, necessary for entrance to the heavenly banquet. The Epistle by St. Paul refers to this in living as one in the state of grace, not just by our speech, but also in our actions in charity to others not by pandering to them, but doing all we can to bring them to their heavenly destination by following all Christ has taught through His one, true Church. For the Haydock Commentary of the Second Sunday after Pentecost's Epistle and Gospel, see Gather the poor, the feeble, the blind and the lame

One of the most beloved saints in the entire Church Triumphant, many consider him a gentle saint as he is so often depicted in his love for the Christ Child. Because of his love for Jesus and His Church, St. Anthony was anything but gentle on those who sought to deceive the faithful through heresy.

Today is the Double Feast of the holy Franciscan and Doctor of the Church Saint Anthony of Padua who died on this date in 1231 at the early age of 36. Upon his death church bells rang throughout Italy, in many with no human person ringing the bells. People attributed the bellringers to the angels who had come to earth to ring them as children wailed in the streets crying aloud, "Our dear father, Anthony is dead." But his spirit and on-going miraculous wonders have lived on for nearly eight centuries. He is the patron saint of the poor and oppressed and the one to whom so many pray to when something or someone is lost. He so wanted to convert the Moors and was willing to be martyred. Where are the St. Anthonys today when the infidels are overrunning Christianity? For more on St. Anthony, see Hammer of Heretics

Griff begins today a three-part series on what would be entailed for a papal resignation. His first part is actually a rerun of an article he wrote here three years ago but serves as an excellent primer for this category. The burning question as to determining the status of one who claims to be pope remains similiar to the age-old question: Which came first? The chicken or the egg? The feathers are sure to fly whenever the question arises between sedevacantist and sedeplenist because there is no set formula or procedure for fully answering the unprecedented circumstances Catholics find themselves in today thanks to something no saint or Doctor of the Church ever envisioned: conciliarism. The following is intended to help Traditional Catholics not end up with egg on their face or chicken out when syllogisms lead to the obvious. The standard always applies: Unity in things essential which includes the infrangible dogmas and doctrines of the Church, freedom to discuss speculative theology which this essay addresses, and in all things charity in arriving at what is best for the Mystical Body of Christ. Griff lays out the scenario and possibilities in part one The Procedure

John Gregory has provided the Haydock Commentary for Trinity Sunday in which Christ reaffirms His short, but powerfully poignant and pertinent words in His final assurance of His protection for all time. In today's Gospel we have all we need to debunk all Protestant argumentation for Scriptura sola or Fidei sola. Their rationalizations are heresy for the Word alone will not save you, nor will Faith alone, but rather those combined through the Sacraments for only through being in the state of Sanctifying Grace can we hope to achieve Heaven. We arrive at the sacraments through Faith and we learn Faith through the Word. Consider, if you will, a three-legged stool (ideal analogy for Trinity Sunday). If one of those legs are missing the stool cannot stand. To know Jesus is to love Him and obey Him by following all He commands. For the Haydock Commentary of Trinity Sunday's Epistle and Gospel, see "Behold I am with you all days"

Considering the "resist and recognize" camp has had no comeback to our arguments because it's not possible to, Griff Ruby tries another tack to hammer home how senseless it is to defend the indefensible. How can one be effective inside something that is totally foreign to God and all He established upon the Rock of Peter? That is the question he addresses to Atila Guimar„es and other like minded resisters who think they can be more effective "inside." It is not possible. For to be inside the wrong something can put one outside the right something. Thus in order to return to the inside, one must shed all that he has insisted on on the outside during the time he thought he was on the inside, but really was and continues to be outside the Church. That logic is not thinking outside the box, but rather inside the Church as laid down by the perennial Magisterium of the Church and therefore in harmony with the will of God. And that is the key point Griff lays out for those still in denial that we are in an interminable interregnum in hopes that perhaps it will prompt them to want to get out of the soul-suffocating constraints of the conciliar box as soon as they can and realize that sedevacantism is not only a "viable option" but, under the circumstances, the only option! Griff provides the logic in Thinking Inside the Church and Outside the Conciliar Box

On 'Red Easter', when we celebrated the birthday of the Church there is another church trying to horn in on our festivities. And editor Michael Cain doesn't mind relating how much he resents it for it has swallowed up a very good priest in Fr. Al Svobodny, OMI, another victim of the conciliar freezer. Oh, the conciliar church might be called 'Catholic' but it has none of the similarities of what the universal Church exhibits such as One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic. Those indelible marks, infallible attributes of the Church Christ founded upon the Rock of Peter, are absent as the Modernist Mengales strive to alter the truth, creating their own evolving monsters in the Modernist mold that consistently ignores the fact that the Author of Truth has revealed all things and there is really nothing new under the sun for the Son, Father or Holy Ghost. They can neither deceive nor be deceived. That should tell you everything about those who do deceive. We only wish there weren't such a casualty list of those who have been deceived, including our former spiritual director who is trapped in the syncretic system that has sapped so many religious orders that used to be valuable to saving souls. Sadly, that is the case no longer as hearts harden and the faith freezes over faster than hell can. Cain provides the cold, hard facts in Thank You, Vatican Two!
