October 2009 (oct2009.htm)

   Editor Michael Cain points out that the man in the White House doesn't want to acknowledge what Americans have fought for throughout 233 years, and Catholics have tried to preserve for over two millennia. Obama's actions manifest that this enigma from Kenya is more sympathetic to terrorists in not only weakening our country, but stripping us of protection and, most importantly, eliminating Christ from the face of the earth. By his actions he is an antichrist and we must speak out on that very fact, just as is the man in Rome who offends Our Lord so by his apostasty. While both men greatly add to the burdens of Mary's Most Sorrowful Heart, She is saddened by our own apathy in the face of elimination of all we hold sacred. Will it take being thrown to the lions or herded into prison camps to wake up Americans and Catholics to what is really going on? Considering America's disregard for human life, especially the slaughter in the womb of over 50 million innocent souls; the disrespect given to Terri Schiavo in her horrible agony four and a half years ago; the almost unnoticed passing of a Terri's dad Robert Schindler, Sr., who withstood the abuse of apathetic America as euthanasia gained a foothold; and the mounting casualties in senseless wars while America decays from within can, it can all be traced back to Vatican Two and the loss of the True Faith by countless millions. Those are the kind of damages God will certainly not consider collateral. Editor Michael Cain gives tribute to the forgotten and reminds us of those we should forget, except in prayer - for we may be commanded to love our enemies, but we sure don't have to like them - especially those who think nothing of the carnage of Collateral Damage


As we arrive at the month that undoubtedly forever changed the face of America, we also remember a Pope who warned us of just what we encountered fifty years ago in the Church and now today in America the same thing is happening with ambiguous bills that have laid out the red carpet for our own government to strip citizens of their God-given freedom and rights. Why? Could it be because we have not kept our priorities straight? Cyndi Cain reminds us and offers the lesson of the holy Pope Saint Pius X who provided all the motivation needed to mobilize and man the ramparts, defending our holy Faith and all we believe as Americans by going on the offense. We need to hear what God wants of us and then have no fear when we shout from the rooftops the infrangible Truths of our Faith and the established goals of the American Constitution. If enough of us stand up and shout out with a sincere heart, then we know God will hear us. In doing so, so will the enemy to either repent or to suffer the consequences. St. Pius warned us of these very times because of the "heresy of heresies" building such a strong bunker right in our midst, both in the Church and in the world. Now those errors have infiltrated every facet of our society and it's time to fight back. Let us resolve to collectively seek out the faith of a mustard seed and then go forth letting the truth ring out from sea to shining sea. Stand Up and Be Counted!



    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? This is a month for weeping for many sorrows have visited our nation. If we thought what happened eight years ago was tragic, what the enemy of Christ is doing now will cause that to pale in comparison. Isn't it time we refamiliarized ourself with just what are the Seven Sorrows of the Immaculate Heart

    Griff Ruby continues his second round of Feeney refutations by taking apart one of the St. Benedict's Center's very first attempts at defining their position publicly. Though the denials of Baptism of Blood and Desire were only hinted at, the kind of pessimistic thinking upon which those denials were based is fully evidenced. In this first of three parts, Griff exposes the ignorance of those who hold mere ignorance itself to be sufficient cause for damnation, as he addresses the Introduction, Part 1, for first of a three part with the beginning of his fourteenth installment. Reply to a Liberal, part a
    Griff continues his second round of Feeney refutations with this second part of taking apart one of the St. Benedict's Center's very first attempts at defining their position publicly, a piece titled Reply to a Liberal. So which is it? Does God condemn the non-culpable or is every non-Catholic under any circumstance personally culpable for their failure to become Catholic? In this second of three parts, Griff exposes the bigotry of those who hold all non-Catholics personally guilty of heresy, schism, or apostasy, as he addresses the remainder of Part 2 of Reply to a Liberal, part b

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
