"Without a computer, The Daily Catholic is at a standstill. It's that simple. And without wheels, we are standing still. We need at least $5000. in donations by Thanksgiving to cover all costs in order to contribute this apostolate for souls."
Cyndi Cain implores readers to come to the assistance of The Daily Catholic which is presently in dire straits financially for the computer is dying, the only transportation available is stuck on a hoist in the mechanic shop, and several health issues are catching up with the editor that could curtail his time at the computer if we have a computer considering its age and legendary use.

The Galactic Empire is about to encounter either an endemic ennui or a horrifying honesty that there are so few priests to even say a Mass. Then what? Such is the dangerous omen of Summorum Pontificum.
Griff Ruby completes his fourth and final episode of this series of analyzing the trio of documents centering on Summorum Pontificum. Utilizing the "Star Wars" theme, while the rhetoric is to hold treaty talks by both the Roman Galactic Empire and different factions within the Resistance, the fact is that for all sides it is 'take no prisoners.' The ambiguity and disorder of the New Order bodes ill for the integrity of the True Latin Mass and infrangible Catholic Doctrine and yet God can allow good to come out of this malaise. Such possibilities are advanced here on how the consecrated Purple Knights of Tradition, guardians of Catholic Truth, can turn the tables and aid the masses with the proper formation of the Ordinary and Proper of the Mass but only by men who seek to be validly ordained, something few suspect Darth Vader or his collegial cohorts would ever allow. Yet, without this requirement, the Motu is a spectral speck in the galaxie, an illusion whose fruits are dead on arrival. As of the posting of this issue, there is less than a week to go before the Motu is supposed to be enforced by the leader of the evil Empire. Of course his Storm Troopers are uneasy in trying to find every excuse they can to opt out, to alter it to suit their purpose. Meanwhile, expectations are being exaggerated on all sides, but it is the surface most are looking at. Lurking beneath is a new chaos that foretells a bitter battle over conditions that few have even considered. Griff addresses this in his final episode of "Motu Wars" with IV. The Phantom Menace of the Motu
We cannot separate Christ from His holy Gospel and cannot truly be prepared for the ultimate Sacrifice on Calvary without hearing the Truth in our minds, professing it on our lips, and living and believing the Faith in our hearts with the intent to be in union with the entire the Communion of Saints.
We continue with the fifth part of a series of sermons provided by Traditional Catholic Sermons which recorded this series given by His Excellency Bishop Donald Sanborn on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in explaining the great gift we have in the Immemorial Canonized Apostolic Mass of All Ages, known today as the Traditional Latin Mass to disassociate it with the modern aberration Novus Ordo missae which is, in effect, the very fulfillment of Christ's prophecy in St. Matthew 24: 15 as the "abomination of desolation". After thoroughly explaining in his introductory sermon on The Mass: Why Latin?, then The Mass: Prayers at the Foot of the Altar, part three on the Mass, Mounting the Altar>, and part four on the Collect and Epistle, The Collect, Bishop Sanborn discusses the holy Gospel. This completes, then, in this Autumn Hiatus Issue the Mass of the Catechumens. His Excellency shows the importance of the Munda cor and why the priest faces north to "preach the gospel to all nations" for north symbolizes paganism. He shows why the counterfeit church of conciliarism has abandoned proseltyzing because they focus on the people present and not the entire Church. He explains the significance of the Gloria Tibi, Domine on our head, lips and heart and why the Gospel is the preparation for the Passion and Death of Christ and fills us with such joy and the Gospel is so integral to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in his fifth installment, which we remind you that you can listen to while you surf other ports on The Daily Catholic.
Part V: The Gospel
With the build up of apostate artillery fashioned and foisted by Bugnini as early as the 1950's, the Missal of '62 was and remains a dangerous missile aimed directly at St. Pius V's Quo Primum, especially in light of what is contained in Summorum Pontificum: the hidden code to wipe from the face of the earth the True Tridentine Rite.,
The fallout of the the Motu has far reaching repercussions. Just as Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey, Bishop Donald Sanborn, Bishop Daniel Dolan, Father Anthony Cekada, Father Paul Trinchard, Dr. Thomas Droleskey, Griff Ruby, Cyndi Cain and many others have warned on this site, including the editor and especially the Fathers at Traditio, so also we bring you an interesting piece published on Tradition in Action by Father Patrick Perez on the devastating effects Father Joseph Ratzinger's combustible Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum can have by his illegal outlawing of all Masses in Latin except the corrupted 1962 Rite of Angelo Roncalli. Father delineates on the gradual concessions granted by Pope Pius XII and even before that by Pope Pius XI in what all, and most probably those authentic Pontiffs as well, perceived as harmless. Oh, what power was packed into those deceitful weapons the Modernists kept concealed and how we were all diverted by another crisis back then - the '62 Cuban Missile Crisis when, in reality, a far more devastating crisis was on our universal doorstep and few had a clue how deadly it would be to souls and, indeed, has been. The mortality rate over the past forty-plus years continues to skyrocket with hellish repercussions, as in everlasting darkness. Now, with this latest Motu, these Modernist Missiles are being locked and loaded, ready to obliterate the Catholic landscape. Father explains in his article, The Missal Crisis of '62
At the International House of Liturgies you may have Catholic cravings for reverence and truth, but don't look for any lasting sustenance for you're sure to leave still hungry, having been waffled and flapjacked.
Father Paul Trinchard, S.T.L. files an interesting piece with the analogy of a restaurant which, considering how they distribute the cookie in the Novus Ordo, is most fitting for those customers of the counterfeit church of conciliarism hungry for true reverence and absolute Catholic truth, will instead be left with crumbs from a crumbling company which for forty years abandoned the demographics pleasing to the Divine. Instead they have, for too long, foisted on the public an inferior product that quickly grew stale and stagnant. Only in the last few years has the president of this failing infrastructure realized there must be a change in the fare. Unfortunately, as we shall see on September 14, few customers will be satisfied for instead of a wholesome necessary menu that includes the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ present only in the Sacrament of the Eucharist when confected correctly by a valid priest, it will be something the chief chef threw together to please the greedy stockholders, not the customers so starving for sustenance. In the end all IHOL will do is leave customers waffled and flapjacked. Such is the progress of conciliar concepts draining souls of grace by IHOL's hostile takeover. Father explains in his article, IHOL's New Motu Menu
Despite appearances and mirrors, the puppet master hasn't changed. Ratzinger still pulls the strings, remaining persistent in his subsistent stubbornness.
His Excellency Bishop Donald Sanborn recently posted an excellent Critical Analysis of the "Responses to some Questions Regarding Certain Aspects of the Doctrine on the Church," by the CDF. Of course, that department was what Fr. Joseph Ratzinger headed for too many years and then appointed a known heretic in Fr. William Levada. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Bishop Sanborn comments on the text of the CDF in his PDF file from Traditional Mass.org and in doing so, he illustrates how the enablers of the counterfeit church of conciliarism merely cover one heresy with another - all part of Ratzinger's Frankenchurch heresy which Father Anthony Cekada first wrote about. It is interesting that the "subsistet in" has been brought up at this time. All part and parcel of trying to assuage and soften up traditionalists to buy the lies being spewed from Lumen Gentium to Summorum Pontificum. The Bishop shows quite clearly that the new church created at Vatican II remains anything but Catholic and, as His Excellency asserts, "Ratzinger is not a conservative, but a radical Modernist, a heretic" who continues to deceive in hopes the duped will abandon the fight to restore Catholic truth and become deserters. Bishop Sanborn wraps it all up in reminding all of what St. Paul affirmed in Galatians 1: 8-10. He explains in his excellent and must read analysis, Ratzinger's Subsistent Error
Beware of the hidden indultcendiaries buried in the Motu and subsequent communiques from the counterfeit church of conciliarism
Griff Ruby files his third installment of his series on "Motu Wars." He continues by breaking down the ideas advanced in the third, and by far least well-known, of this troublesome Trio of documents. As one reads this one can see that normally when one has a set plan, one lays it out succinctly and the better prepared, the better it is conveyed. Not so with Benedict XVI and the counterfeit church of conciliarism which is opposed by a small loyal band of dedicated freedom fighters, who, knowing the history of the Catholic Empire, do not recognize the illegal, unauthorized satanic authority of the leader of the Roman Galactic Empire headquartered on Vatican Base, the Resistance's former stronghold in better days. More stipulations are being laid out by the one who has gone over to the sinister side. There is codespeak in his explanetory communiqué to his Imperial Troops in scarlet and purple to alert them that he has no intention of changing his course or conceding anything to the Resistance. He's telling them to just watch and see for, just as everything else he touches evolves in Hegelian fashion, he has a plan evolving that is, as usual, planted with novelties and time bombs. For he is the master of such. As usual there is so much ambiguity in conciliar documents that another document needs to be issued to explain the first. Griff analyzes this "clarification", keeping in mind that we're dealing with an Imperial Empire which has penetrated every corner of the galaxy with its double-speak deceit. No matter what the leader of the evil Empire portends in his Motu, there are hidden meanings, hidden indultcendiary issues that will explode when the duped least expect it. Expect it! Griff reveals the hidden explosives in his third part, III. Return of the 'Time Bombs'
Many are concerned with the direction the SSPX Superior General is taking the Society in the aftermath of the Motu. They ask, "Whither thou goest, your Excellency?"
Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey filed several articles over the Laborday Weekend, but one that all should take note of is his no-nonsense piece on the direction His Excellency Bishop Bernard Fellay is leaning. As Tom points out in his introduction Fellay "has stated that it is not important as to whether the Novus Ordo Missae is valid or not and that it was secretaries, not the penultimate Modernist, Giovanni Montini/Paul VI, who were responsible for the Novus Ordo Missae and other problems between 1963 and 1978. This revisionist history comes only too naturally to those who seek to accommodate themselves to the ethos of the counterfeit church of conciliarism (See Rifan, Fernando Areas; Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter; Institute of Christ the King, which promotes the so-called 'Luminous Mysteries,' of all things). All the more reason to cling to the true Faith and to the true Mass in the catacombs along with true bishops and true bishops who make no concessions to conciliarism or to the legitimacy of its false shepherds. Only those who can remain silent as the false pontiff calls a mountain dedicated to Buddhism sacred and as this false pontiff's Secretary of State states that the crisis of perversity, whose ethos is open and rampant in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, was exaggerated by the media can believe that it is in accord with the Catholic Faith to be 'una cum' with apostates and heretics." Tom goes into details in his excellent essay which every Traditional Catholic, especially SSPXers must read Not Important At All?
On Monday, Labor Day in the United States, we celebrate the Feast of the holy Pontiff Pope Saint Pius X who was such a crusader against Modernism, the "synthesis of all heresies." You'll note as we wind down the Countdown of the 65 Errors against Modernism, which he listed in his Lamentabili Sane, and which commentaries of each Error we have been running in each issue since July 4 and will complete this coming Thursday, we provide in this Labor Day Weekend Issue commentaries on Errors 59 through 62. It is all part of the centennial recognition of St. Pius releasing that Apostolic Constitution on July 3, 1907 and 67 days later his landmark encyclical Pascendi Dominic Gregis against Modernism, that would be reinforced three years lator on September 1, 1910 with the mandatory Oath Against Modernism which the conciliar Modernists, beginning with Giovanni Montini, did away with, thus exposing himself and all others who complied as enemies of God for their rejection of Catholic truth and tradition. In recalling St. Pius X's life and studying his encyclicals and papal decrees, it is as if he had seen ahead of time what would occur in his beloved Church and so tried to warn the faithful and the hierarchy. In honor of the legacy of this saintly Pontiff, we present three features: a detailed biography of the man - the kind of shepherd so sorely missing today; secondly, a sermon by His Excellency Bishop Donald Sanborn on the sanctity of this simple, holy parish priest who became pope while maintaining his humilty; and thirdly, an essay by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey on this eternal enemy of the Modernists. We can only hope and pray that someday, in God's time, we will once again have a shepherd devoted to upholding the Apostolic Traditions as St. Pius X was and who did all in his power to safeguard the Sacred Deposit of the Faith For more about this cardinal from northern Italy, see The Story of St. Pius X
You can hear a dynamic sermon about this Defender of the Faith against Heresy and why he was such: because of his love, and sensitivity for the poor and his humility and persevere despite the obstacles he encountered "by the zeal of the grace of God." That was the foundation of this holy parish priest's sanctity as Bishop Sanborn describes the sign of supernatural sanctity for "in the soul o fthe saint the lion must lie down with the lamb" as His Excellency, an orator on par with and even more powerful than Bishop Fulton J. Sheen, shares in his moving sermon on this model of the whole Church Sermon on the Holiness of Saint Pius X
Finally, Dr. Droleskey highlights the essence of this saintly Successor of Peter, writing "The humble farm boy from Riese, who served in the cattle trading center of Tombolo and used his gentle demeanor to extract from the men in that rough and tumble community a promise to refrain from cursing and using God's name in vain in exchange for his running a night school to teach them how to read and write, noted in his first encyclical letter, E Supremi, October 4, 1903, that he wanted to use gentleness in dealing with the problems of the day. Faced with the obstinate boldness of the Modernists, however, Pope Saint Pius X, the pope of early First Communion and frequent Communions thereafter, the pope who loved children and wanted to see them instructed by means of the Catechism whose production he supervised, yes, this gentle pastor of souls, had to resort to the full force of the papacy to assess and to denounce the errors of Modernists and Modernism." Tom explains in his magnificent summa from last year, Modernism's Eternal Foe, Our Eternal Friend
Fearing rebellion from within his own ranks, the leader of the Conciliar Empire tries to assuage his Imperial Troops in purple and scarlet who fear he has conceded too much to the Traditional Resistance in the "Motu Wars."
Griff Ruby continues with his study of the Motu Proprio and, in his second installment, deciphers the accompanying letter to the bishops. It is necessary to know what is really intended in order to know the enemy's coordinates and to avoid the obstacles and remote probes trying to lure out Traditionalists in order to deal a death blow to the true Faith. The freedom fighters must never recognize the false authority of the enemy for that will only weaken the Resistance. All dedicated to the Faith must stand firm to tradition and resist with all their might. Continuing the theme of "Star Wars", the Traditional Resistance may seem small in comparison to the vast evil Empire that has taken over the governance of the Catholic galaxy. Griff, on behalf of traditional freedom fighters, hones in on the hidden agenda of the leader of the Conciliar Empire in his communique to his storm troopers in purple and scarlet. As Griff discovers in deciphering the code, one can easily see the treason has not been subdued but grows stronger for Catholic truth is compromised for 'peace and tranquility' - code words for 'do it our way or else' in order to establish a One World Unity of Community Order where all bow to the Darth Vader of the Imperial Troops. Doublespeak and deception still rule the day and the alarm is sent out to all in the Resistance: Stay the course, hold your positions. Do not be seduced by the Starship Ecumania. Griff explains in his second episode of "Motu Wars" with II. The Conciliar Empire Strikes Back
The Collect symbolizes the gathering together in which the priest, having communicated with Christ and the Church Triumphant, now acts for the whole Church in praying for grace while the people pray that the priest will be sanctified in saying the Holy Mass.
We continue this weekend with the fourth part of a series of sermons provided by Traditional Catholic Sermons which recorded this series given by His Excellency Bishop Donald Sanborn on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in explaining the great gift we have in the Immemorial Canonized Apostolic Mass of All Ages, known today as the Traditional Latin Mass to disassociate it with the modern aberration Novus Ordo missae which is, in effect, the very fulfillment of Christ's prophecy in St. Matthew 24: 15 as the "abomination of desolation". After thoroughly explaining in his introductory sermon on The Mass: Why Latin?, then The Mass: Prayers at the Foot of the Altar and part three on the Mass, Mounting the Altar>, Bishop Sanborn continues by explaining the significance of the Collect or collecta - the gathering together - in which the priest first kisses the altar which represents the Church Triumphant and, after extending God's blessing to the faithful with Dominus vobiscum and the collective faithful response by the altar boy or choir, Et cum spiritu tuo, proceeds to the Epistle side of the altar to pray the Collect. The Collect always carries with it the theme of the day in which the priest prays for what the Church seeks from God and it always entails praying for grace for while "health and wealth will pass, grace will not. If we cooperate with that grace we have permanence beyond the grave." His Excellency explains components of the Collect and the priest's vital role in this prayer and why the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the most powerful place to pray in his fourth installment, which we remind you that you can listen to while you surf other ports on The Daily Catholic.
