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 Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost Father brings out the importance of the Good Samaritan parable for it is, as the Fathers and early Doctors of the Church all agree, an allegory of the New Covenant. The victim in dire help is Adam, his posterity is Jerusalem. The man, by heading for Jericho is seeking the world, the flesh and the devil, is accommodated by the demons personified in the robbers, who take grace from him by beating him as he succumbs to sin. Those who pass by him without helping represent the old Law, while the Samaritan is Christ Who represents the New Law. His beast of burden signifies our Lord's humanity and the inn He brings the man to represents the only Church He founded. The wine for the man is the Blood of Christ, the oil is His mercy. The host of the inn represents St. Peter and his succession of true Popes and Hierarchy. The charge to go and do in like manner for the Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost


As noted above, we present the best of Mario Derksen's works this month to acquaint readers with the Catholicity of this young Traditional Catholic as we begin a series first run back on February 15, 2002 entitled "Vatican II and the Gospel of Man" as he meticulously peeled off the skin-deep layers of rhetoric, exposing the tightening muscles of modernism that seek to squeeze the bones of doctrine. This prevents the living organs of Truth and Tradition from fully being able to function, thus allowing the cancer of humanism to penetrate the pores of the Mystical Body of Christ. Mario analyzed disturbing statements from Vatican II and the conciliar 'popes' which reveal an exaggerated and novel view of man and his dignity - a humanistic agenda that has been the core of the the post-conciliar campaign to put distance between modernist Rome and Eternal Rome as you'll discover in part one of his seven-part series: The Enthronement of Man.


Mario Derksen continued his seven part series on "Vatican II and the Gospel of Man" as he meticulously peeled off the skin-deep layers of rhetoric, exposing the tightening muscles of modernism that seek to squeeze the bones of doctrine. This prevents the living organs of Truth and Tradition from fully being able to function, thus allowing the cancer of humanism to penetrate the pores of the Mystical Body of Christ. Mario showed how the Pastoral Constitution Gaudium et spes took the smoke of satan and torched the Truths and Traditions upheld by previous pontiffs by diminishing man's dignity by elevating him to something he can never attain - divinity. Mario explained in part two of his column Towards the Deification of Man.


In continuing his seven-part series on "Vatican II and the Gospel of Man" first published in early 2002, Mario Derksen illustrated how the First Vatican Council assured there would be no novelty in Catholic doctrine. There wasn't any innovations until along came Vatican II and Paul VI who took it upon himself to tinker in areas previously considered sacrosanct from the time of Jesus Christ on. As we see today, the results allowed the infiltration of the enemy where Freemasonry to cast a giant, engulfing and suffocating shadow over the Council and beyond as Mario explained in part three of his column An Anthropocentric Church?


Mario Derksen continued with his seven-part series on "Vatican II and the Gospel of Man" as he showed how the Novus Ordo has been so ingrained in so many that few are aware that what was foisted on the people would, if Rome were truly Roman Catholic, depose most of the bishops for promoting innovations that, as the Second Council of Nicaea decreed, "wrongfully and outrageously devise the destruction of...those traditions enshrined in the Catholic Church" such as the outrageous New 'Mass'. Yet the vast majority of Catholics have no clue their faith is being ransacked and destroyed as Mario explained in part four with his column Actions Speak Louder Than Words.


On the Ides of March back in 2002 Mario Derksen illustrated so well the ambiguities that have marked the post-conciliar church, specifically the long pontificate of one known as John Paul II in showing how difficult modern Rome has made it for Catholics to know their faith in what would seem to be a deliberate attempt to cloak the teachings of the Church in mystery and hide them under a cloud of nearly impenetrable gobbledygook as Mario explained in part five with his column The Razzmatazz of the Post-Conciliar Church.


On this next to the last installment of Mario Derksen's excellent seven-part series on "Vatican II and the Gospel of Man", he exposed back in 2002 the novelties of new theses which are couched in such ambiguity that he could only term it 'bafflegab' for the post-conciliar church (Also called Newchurch as Mario dubs it, or as Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey termed the "counterfeit church of conciliarism" or, as we coined in describing the robber barons who stole in: "VulgArians". One thing we do know: whatever you call it, it's false and not Catholic!) is determined to "dialogue" ad nauseum. All of this gab only baffles Catholics further, all playing into the hands of humanists as Mario explained in part six with his column The 'Bafflegab' of the Post-Conciliar Church: Razzmatazz II.


We complete Mario's seven-part series on "Vatican II and the Gospel of Man" with this seventh installment first published on Good Friday of 2002. Mario illustrated how the razzmatazz, 'bafflegab', and skimble-skamble of the post-conciliar church, and especially in the pronouncements by John Paul II, left the faithful gasping for air and flying blind in a snowstorm of ambiguity and humanism that, as we can see since, has only gotten worse and more confusing as Mario explained in part seven with his column The Skimble-Skamble of the Post-Conciliar Church: Razzmatazz III


John Gregory provides a comprehensive reflection/meditation and study on the Second Glorious Mystery in conjunction with the twelfth Saturday of the fifteen week Rosary Crusade first introduced by His Excellency Bishop Robert McKenna a few years ago. Our Lord has gone to prepare a place for us, and thus the effects of the Ascension remain an on-going mystery for Christ continues to prepare for us at the Father's right hand and in that wondrous news is extended the greatest hope to all for where Christ has gone He waits for us to follow in a place of everlasting happiness for those who are obedient to His teachings and cooperate with the divine Will. Just as Jesus left instructions for His Apostles, He has left us inerrant instructions that, if we follow fully, will assure us of being with Him forever. The Second Glorious Mystery

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 Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost Father continues with the Samaritan, this time in respect to the ten lepers and the only one to return and give thanks for his healing by the miracle of Jesus Christ is a Samaritan. Christ exhibits surprise that this Samaritan is the only one left, but the Son of God knew and it was another manifestation that He had come for all, not just the Jews. He conveys this by assuring this man that the faith he had is what healed him, made him whole. The Faith of the Samaritan for the Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost


The crux of our faith rests on the Holy Cross for without Christ's ultimate sacrifice on the Cross there would be no Resurrection, no salvation. Thus we bring you the etimology of the word in a special feature to help the faithful focus on the message Holy Mother Church conveys in the liturgy of the Proper of the Holy Mass so the faithful can better understand the magnificent correlation of Sacred Scripture. It is also our hope that in choosing the Latin word with its meaning and derivative more will be attuned to hearing Latin read at the altar and better comprehend the beauty of the Mother tongue. Lift High the Cross


The VerbumQUO for the Feast of the Seven Dolors of the Blessed Virgin Mary is "Stabat Mater" meaning "The Mother stood" or "The Mother was standing" and is the well-known 13th century Gregorian Chant Hymn, taken from the Sequence Stabat Mater for the second of two feasts in the liturgical year for Our Lady of Sorrows; the September observance being the greater Double Feast of the Seven Sorrows with A Mother's Love that Knows No Bounds


This is the signature feast for the month of September dedicated to Our Sorrowful Mother. In Passion Week this feast precedes Holy Week and the Triumph of the Cross, but this month it is that triumph, the Exaltation of the Holy Cross which immediately precedes this Double of the Second Class Feast of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Tradition says that Mary, meeting her Divine Son Jesus bearing His cross, fell under the weight of her anguish. Upon the place of this awful meeting a chapel was raised, which took the name of St. Mary of the Spasm, and a feast was celebrated under the same name for several centuries. At the provincial Council of Cologne in 1413, to rebuke the audacity of the Hussites, who had laid sacrilegious hands upon the images of Jesus Christ crucified and His Holy Mother, was instituted the feast of the Commemoration of the Seven Dolors of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and its celebration was fixed for the Friday of Passion Week. This Feast, substituted for that of the Spasm, or rather blended with it, was eagerly accepted by the faithful. To represent the anguish of Mary, painters have shown her with her heart pierced with seven swords. Let Mary lead us and show us the combination that unlocks the door, possible only by the ultimate Sacrifice of the Cross Why is Our Lady so Sorrowful? She is a Mother and She continues to weep because so many do not believe, do not adore, do not trust, and do not love Her Divine Son. Wouldn't you weep too? Mater Dolorosa


John Gregory provides a comprehensive reflection/meditation and study on the Third Glorious Mystery in conjunction with the thirteenth Saturday of the fifteen week Rosary Crusade first introduced by His Excellency Bishop Robert McKenna a few years ago. Fifty days after our Lord Jesus Christ conquered death and ten days after He bodily ascended into Heaven, He made good on His promise to send His Spirit. The Holy Ghost came with a rush of grace and inspiration, transforming the formerly apprehensive Apostles into men of virtuous courage who were now ready to fully take up the command Christ had given them. The charism of the Church was born that day and the Faith spread rapidly with three thousand on the first day. A glorious day it was! The Third Glorious Mystery

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 Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost we come to Our Lord's words from St. Matthew 6: 24 that no man can serve two masters; that one cannot serve both God and mammom, which means riches and worldly things. Therefore we realize the words of St. Paul in the epistle to walk in the spirit and rail against the flesh for the world, the flesh and the devil is our downfall unless we heed Christ's counsel. He chastises us not because He's mad, but because He loves us and reassures us here how much the heavenly Father does too with his reference to those wonderful things of nature God has placed here on earth for man's use as He intended. No Man Can Serve Two Masters for the Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost


Editor Michael Cain points out that minds that are focused on mindless things create soft bodies that harden hearts, making for a nation of lazy sheep which serve as the perfect breeding ground for a government of wolves to ravage its citizens and steal whatever freedom they thought they had. The darkness swallowed the light and all was still for stupidity had wreaked havoc on those who had become dependent on things of this world without realizing how fleeting material things are. A blackout power outage can be a wonderful lesson in not only being a dress rehearsal for a greater disaster, but also for remembering what Sunday's gospel affirms in St. Matthew that we should not worry for if God takes care of the birds and lilies of the field, how much more those made in His image and likeness. "O ye of little faith! Be not solicitous therefore saying: What shall we eat, or what shall we drink, or wherewith shall we be clothed? for after all these things do the heathen seek." Yes, the heathens seek in the darkness and are found wanting, where as if one is still and prays, the Light is everywhere for the darkness cannot see it as Cain illustrates in his editorial Stupidity or Sabotage.


Through these revelations to St. Bridget of Sweden we see clearer than ever the mind of God and what we need to do to not only assure our own salvation, but win souls for Him in sharing Heaven. In the second chapter of Book Three, the Blessed Mother speaks to her daughter of the opportune solution to the difficulties meeting the bishop on the narrow path. The bride speaks to Christ, pouring forth prayers for the bishop mentioned earlier, and about the answers provided by the heavenly Father, Christ Himself, Saint Agnes, and the Blessed Virgin Mary in guiding St. Bridget as they speak of two roads, one leads to the abyss and is pleasurable and carefree while the road to Heaven is an uphill struggle made light and easy the more one embraces God's will and strengthens their prayer life in the state of grace. Those not in the state of grace cannot count on switching roads for no one knows the day nor the hour when it might be too late. As we see in Book 12, There are no shortcuts.


Today, Ember Wednesday, we celebrate the feast of the tax collector St. Matthew and his Gospel, the first in the Book of the New Testament is so verified and exemplified in the words imparted to St. Bridget of Sweden from the Mother of God where we can see clearer than ever the mind of God and what we need to do to not only assure our own salvation, but win souls for Him in sharing Heaven. In the thirteenth chapter of Book Three, the Blessed Virgin Mary's words to the daughter focuses on how she so beautifully explains the words and deeds of her divine Son Christ in the metaphor of a Treasure, where His divine nature is likened to a castle and the obstacles to that castle are the bars of sin, and the fleeting waters of this world's beauty and man's friendship that can sink into the moat of hell those who do not have their eyes and hearts on the true Treasure as Our Lady lays out how a bishop ought to behave with respect to the care of souls as we see in Book Three, chapter thirteen, Gaining the Treasure.


On this feast of a holy bishop, we bring you the words from the Blessed Virgin Mary to St. Bridget of Sweden about bishops where we've already seen how precious they are to God and yet if they shun their responsibility they will be held accountable to a much, much higher standard for many souls have been entrusted to their care. Over the next two chapters the Mother of God compares a certain bishop, and, in that respect to every bishop, as those with wings. Not however as angels' wings, but those of insects. In Chapter fourteen of Book Three she looks to the beautiful butterfly and indicates those things we don't normally see in the papillon for she places it under a microscope, if you will, in the same way God puts a bishop, because of his grave responsibility, under said microscope as far as his words, actions and prayer life. A Bishop as a Butterfly.


The Prophesies and Revelations to St. Bridget of Sweden offer us an insight into the mind of God and what we need to do to gain eternal life as these words support and fortify divine revelation in keeping man on the straight and narrow. Continuing the analogy of the winged insect, the Mother of God's words to her daughter paint a different picture than the butterfly but rather a much more disturbing flying insect as she equates another such bishop allegorically as a gadfly, his wordy eloquence as flying, his two concerns as two wings, his flattery of the world as a sting; and about the Virgin's amazement at the life of these two bishops; also, about preachers. This is the sad essence of chapter fifteen of Book Three, A Bishop as a Gadfly.


On this Ember Saturday, John Gregory provides a comprehensive reflection/meditation and study on the Fourth Glorious Mystery in conjunction with the fourteenth Saturday of the fifteen week Rosary Crusade first introduced by His Excellency Bishop Robert McKenna a few years ago. From the time of the Blessed Mother being lifted up into Heaven at her Assumption it was a dogma of the Church and yet never fully proclaimed as such until His Holiness Pius XII decreed it in his encyclical Munificentissimus Deus on November 1, 1950 which is the compendium of meditation on the Fourth Glorious Mystery.

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 Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost we first see St. Paul's epistle to the Galatians in which he affirms that no one can fool God, man yes, but not God. He will not be mocked. This is exactly what is happening today and yet so many still want signs, the kind Our Lord works in St. Luke 7 in raising the dead son, healing the blind and deaf and still, the very multitudes who clamored for more, mocked God by being the same who abandoned Him at the hour of His Passion. Oh, man is a fickle lot and it does have consequences as to his actions. God is Not Mocked for the Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost


Editor Michael Cain weighs in with a follow-up to last week's editorial as he turns from the world view of the world to the world view of the Church as they see it today. What Cain sees is that it's time for all Catholics to get off the fence. Those who can't see the truth now, may never. We've said all we can, provided all the proof we can that we are indeed in an interminable interregnum mainly because the Great Apostasy foretold in Sacred Scripture and by many saints, not to mention the Mother of God, has arrived and we are smack dab in the middle of it. You have a choice. Choose wisely for as the Gospel of St. Matthew for the Fifteenth Week after Pentecost brought home: "You cannot serve God and mammon." Which is it? Eternal Rome or Modernist Rome? The former encompasses holy Mother Church from its founding upon the Rock of Peter through the pontificate of Pope Pius XII; the latter comprises the Vatican II church from Roncalli to Ratzinger. You can't have both. It's either follow the teachings of the Church as taught from 33 A.D. to 1958 or jump on the express to hell with the relativism and heresy spewed since Pius' death. Time is running out to eschew the wide path and get aboard that narrow path. Yes, it's a lonely way, but the only way! Cain lays it all out once again in Eternal Rome or Modernist Rome.


Through these revelations to St. Bridget of Sweden we see clearer than ever the mind of God and what we need to do to not only assure our own salvation, but win souls for Him in sharing Heaven. In the second chapter of Book Three, the Blessed Mother speaks to her daughter of the opportune solution to the difficulties meeting the bishop on the narrow path. In this chapter the Son of God provides an explanation to the bride St. Bridget that the damnation of souls does not please God; He also reveals the conversation between two bishops about the astonishing questions of the younger bishop to the older bishop, and about the answers of the older bishop to the younger one which are not encouraging for his eternal welfare. All should take heed as we can see in Book 3, Chapter 16: Woe to the Worldly Bishop.


We appreciate the patience of readers in waiting for this series to resume. We do so with this thirty-third lesson with the First Commandment: "I am the Lord thy God, thou shalt not have false gods before Me." This will be divided into two parts, the first "I am the Lord thy God" focusing on the positive aspects of this most important first commandment and the second part will deal with "thou shalt not have false gods before Me" in outlining the sins against this primary precept. We debunk the Protestant notion that we worship Mary or the Saints and show that worship alone belongs to the Holy Trinity, three Persons in One God - the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. Yet it is vital to realize that Jews sand Muslims do not worship the same God as conciliar 'popes' have heretically professed for though we are all descendents of Abraham, the Old Testament was fulfilled with the Coming of Christ and because Jews did not and will not accept Christ as the Son of God and Muslims have no time for the Son or the Holy Ghost, going so far as to demean the Son as merely a prophet on the same level as the mad maniac Mohammed who apostasized from the Church in the 600's with his own set of laws and rituals that are the very antithesis of all God stands for, they fall into the category our Lord spoke of in St. Mark 16: 16, "He that believeth and is baptized, shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be condemned." This is reinforced in the first of two steps on the The First Commandment Part One


In honor of the Double of the First Class Feast of St. Michael on September 29, we highlight the entirety of the prayer Pope Leo XIII composed. We all know the short version, mandated to be included in the Leonine Prayers after every Low Mass, but few are aware of the longer version. After Vatican II, in legion with the devil Giovanni Montini outlawed this necessary prayer and then one wonders how "the smoke of satan" got into the sanctuary? The conciliarists wanted to make sure this powerful prayer would never see the light of day again for in it Leo foretold what would happen: The shepherd would be struck, the sheep scattered. We present both the long and short versions of this poignant prayer which should never be forgotten. The Power of the Prayer to St. Michael


The final day of the month, following immediately the Double of the First Class Feast of the Dedication of St. Michael the Archangel, is the feast of the holy Doctor of the Church St. Jerome. He was born into a wealthy family and used those riches to receive the finest education at the hands of the world's greatest professors in Rome and then employed that wealth of knowledge for Christ's holy Church. He amassed all of the Scriptures and, through the grace of the Holy Ghost was able to translate the inspired word into the Latin tongue, all wrapped up in the magnificent Latin Vulgate. For this massive work that he accomplished while continuing to carry out his vocation and mission of shepherding souls into Heaven, he has often been called Father of the Mother Tongue

    • PAPAL PROOF OF WHAT THE CHURCH TRULY TEACHES
        For those who truly want to delve deeper into what the Faith teaches and what past Sovereign Pontiffs have decreed, we recommend for your vital reading to better KNOW THE FAITH in order to KEEP THE FAITH, pertinent Papal decrees which put to the lie what is being promulgated today by the Vatican II church. We strongly encourage you to read these to understand how today the modern church is in Apostasy when compared to what had always been taught by Holy Mother Church and enforced and warned as most grievous by previous Pontiffs as you'll see in CREDO & CULTURE
