Today we conclude Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey's eight-part series on true Catholic teaching regarding the Church and State with a short summary in which Tom offers the only solution for righting the ship in restoring the rightful authority to the Church as God intended, for reestablishing order and setting our country on the path to peace through the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ. That remedy is to do as Heaven has asked. Prayer, penance and consecrate Russia to Mary's Immaculate Heart. Because of the Great Apostasy, we most likely will not see that consecration in our lifetime barring a miracle which is possible. Nevertheless it is up to us, Christ's Remnant, to do all in our power to work towards this goal and follow Pope Pius XI's words in Quas Primas as Tom concludes with Part Eight: The Antidote to Statism

Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey's eight-part series on true Catholic teaching regarding the Church and State today focuses the bulls-eye on the great enablers of empowering their compromising with Catholic teaching. That would be the 'bishops' for by omission or commission they have been guilty for the confusion and have actually contributed to the rapid loss of souls in forgetting the goal of the Social Kingship of Christ by embracing Modernism. We can see had they heeded Pope Leo XIII's encyclical against Americanism and Pope St. Pius X's decrees and Oath Against Modernism, had they stood up to the likes of progressive anti-Catholics Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, had they been loyal to Catholic truth, the State would never have gained the pagan status that it has today. Abortion would be a non-issue because it is murder. Obama wouldn't even be a footnote. In fact, the Church may well have never given way to Vatican II. We can only wonder as Tom details the surrender of the prelates to politics in Part Seven: The Shepherds of Statism

On the Double of the Second Class Feast of the holy Apostles Saint Simon and Saint Jude it's interesting to note that Simon was a Chananean, and was known among the apostles as "the Zealot". Before Christ called him to be an apostle, Simon belonged to the patriotic party known as Zealots, who, impatient of foreign rule, prepared for a war of independence. This circumstance was not forgotten, and even after he had become a disciple of the Lord, he was still known by the appellation of the Zealot, demonstrably by his zeal. He suffered martyrdom in Persia according to tradition. St. Jude was the brother of James the Less, first bishop of Jerusalem, and therefore a cousin of Our Savior. The New Testament includes a short letter written by St. Jude. All the Apostles are daily commemorated in the Roman Canon of the Mass, St. Jude under the name of Thaddeus. It is believed that the relics of these two apostles are in St. Peter's in Rome. Tradition says that Jude Thaddeus preached in Mesopotamia, where he died for the Faith. Others claim both were martyred together in Persia. St. Jude is the patron of difficult cases. For more on these two saints, as well as the Prayer to St. Jude, see Saints Simon and Jude

As we draw nearer to the feast of Christ the King followed two days later by election day, we bring you the sixth installment of Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey's eight-part series on true Catholic teaching regarding the Church and State. Though man will always possess his fallen human nature until he is called from this mortal earth, while he breathes in this life he is obliged to understand his purpose and that is to do all he can to be reunited with God in Heaven. Nothing else counts for a hill of beans. No matter what solution one offers to improve the State, if it is not in total alignment with God's will for establishing the Social Reign of Jesus Christ as King and Mary Immaculate as Queen, all is for naught and it will perish for to gamble with worldly coins ends up in spiritual poverty. Yet, through what the Church has always taught, if one plays the right coin one can be assured of a winning hand when one stands before his King and Savior as Tom details in Part Six: Libertarianism or Anarchy?

With rebellion comes extreme organizations that are created to make up for the loss of a previous reliable need, such as the Church. With revolt against the Church came the rise of Freemasonry, spawned by the Machiavellian mechanizations that permeated and poisoned Europe and society to accept heresies and apostasy so readily via Protestantism. The underbelly of the American Revolution was its anti-Catholic stance in assuring the Church could not and would not interfere with the matters of the State, a less violent form of the Rights of Man, if you will. This same mentality was not only adopted by the early leaders of America but throughout the history of the United States as Tom illustrates the Masonic influence that has obliterated Catholic truth and what Fr. Fahey and His Holiness Pope Leo XIII had to say in alerting the faithful to the dangers in part five of this eight-part series by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey in Part Five: Protestantism and Freemasonry

Continuing with this eight-part series by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey as we get closer to election day, in part four Tom traces how the false concept of separation of Church and State originated with the anarchy of the Protestant Revolution in both Luther's rebellion and Henry VIII's apostasy in taking an entire nation and eventually continents away from the true path to Heaven. As time waned on one error after another compounded truth and we have ended up with nothing but errors because everything was premised on error to begin with in respect to rejecting the Church Christ established. Laws that are not divinely inspired or in harmony with the natural law will not only be abused, but distorted and used to suppress man just as satan intended. The fact is the American Revolution would never have occurred had Henry been true to God and listened to Sir Thomas More rather than the compromiser Cardinal Wolsey. The fact the English king was not true has laid the way for the chaos we face today as Tom cites Pope Leo XIII and Father Denis Fahey, CSSp as proof in Part Four: A Catholic Understanding of How 'Evangelical Liberty' Forged its way in

Over the last few steps we've been dealing with how the devil is so devious, and in step sixteen we treat the origins of these spirits who all started out as good angels, bestowed by their Creator with anything anyone would ever want. Yet, pride played a role in lucifer's revolt and the rest, as they say, is history. It is the oldest story in the world, yay, even before the world, and it makes one's decision in life very simple. It's either obey God and His Laws, which include adhering to the truths and traditions handed down by Christ and His Apostles through the one, holy, Catholic and apostolic Church He established on earth, or face the consequences of those who choose to go it their own way, a way that leads straight to the gates of hell. It is either enjoying the company of the angels in Heaven forever and ever - per omnia saecula saeculorum - or realizing one must abandon all hope, all ye who enter here (hell) - omnes relinquite spes, o vos intrantes. Hell is so very, very final and Christ shows us how to avoid the lasting agony of eternal damnation, but only if we are willing to obey His holy Will. It's our choice in choosing sides as we see in Step Sixteen, Good and Evil Spirits

Continuing with this eight-part series by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey as we get closer to election day, in part three Tom explains how by undermining the Church through revolution, the State was awarded an exaggerated expectation that all must depend on the State and anything from the Church would be considered interference and the two should not mix. This anti-Catholic thinking prevailed at the Protestant Reformation and French Revolution and, contrary to what many have been lead to believe, in America as well, for the Constitution was cleverly crafted as a safeguard against Catholic truth, shrouded as it were, in America-speak gleaned from the Rights of Man rather than the Rights granted by God and bestowed on His one true Church as the Beacon to guide the way of all souls. Tom shows how this was all corrupted and why through the decrees of true Popes in Part Three: A Catholic Understanding of the History of the State and Its Corruption

This special feature is provided by John Gregory. For the Twenty-Second Sunday after Pentecost Fr. Haydock provides a few commentaries that should hit home with the upcoming election considering the whole religious liberty heresy that so many Americans have bought into. Yes, we must render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, but too few realize the more important to render to God the things that are God's. We are all God's children, ergo His. The democratic system established in the U.S. has more and more forgotten that and incurred moral corruption in every venue of society, government and ecclesially. St. Paul pleads in his Epistle to not look for temporal treasures, but rather spiritual treasures. In this time when there is global economic collapse let us pray more take that advice. And in the Gospel, perhaps the best advice we can glean from today's commentaries in the Gospel and Epistle are the warning words of St. Athanasius, Pope Clement XIV, and St. Ambrose. When we go into the voting booth remember the latter's words, "A good emperor is within the Church, but not above the Church." The "emperors" who have been ruling are not within the Church. Yay, they are enemies of Christ. Enough is enough! Stand for the faith and render all priorities to God. "Render to God the things that are God's"

In light of the fact that quite possibly the most important election in this nation's history is a mere nine days away from today, we are bringing you an eight-part series written by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey, first published here in 2003. Therefore through next Saturday, in leading up to the Feast of Christ the King, we are bringing you an installment a day to bring all up to date on Catholic truth in informing Catholics on what they need to know about Catholicism and the State. Tom points out through documentation by previous true Popes and renowned Catholic theologians, such as Fr. Cahill and Fr. Fahey, the absolute fallacy of separation of Church and State for both are from God and that is the reason Christ established His Church on earth to work in harmony with both for the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ. It is only with the rebellion of man in the various revolutions beginning with the Protestant Reformation that heresy crept in and twisted the true concept of the State. Tom identifies the truth in Part Two: The Christian Concept of the State

Though the Double Major Feast of the Archangel Saint Raphael is superseded by the 22nd Sunday after Pentecost, it is important to remember this member of the triumverate of Archangels who is the least represented of the Archangels, yet is the one whom God sent to heal Tobias and drive the devil out of his daughter-in-law Sara where we read in the Book of Tobias how he is the protector and guardian of the sick for his name signifies "The healing of God." Saint Raphael is the “angelic physician of soul and body” and is St. Raphael is one of the seven blessed spirits who always stand before the throne of God. He is identified by many Fathers of the Church with the angel who stirred the Pool of Bethseda as related in the Gospel for the Mass when the multitude of sick souls gathered near the pools, waiting for the waters to be stirred, proving they were aware of the Book of Tobias and held out hope and faith that God would send His archangel once again. For more, see Saint Raphael the Archangel

In light of the fact that quite possibly the most important election in this nation's history is a mere ten days away from today, we are bringing you a series written by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey, first published here in 2003. Therefore from now through next Saturday, in leading up to the Feast of Christ the King, we will be bringing you an installment a day to bring all up to date on Catholic truth. In the first installment of this eight-part series on getting a firm fix on what Catholics need to know about Catholicism and the State, Tom lays out the various concepts of states which have cropped up over the centuries to erode the true concept of the Christian State. And believe us, the erosion has grown over the years where today most Catholics are totally clueless in understanding how we have all been so duped by revisionist historians and progressives, not to mention the conciliar cabal that hijacked holy Mother Church. Because all the confusion about separation of Church and State has contributed to dismissing into oblivion the necessity for the Social Kingship of Christ this series is so very necessary. Tom identifies and defines three of these states in his first installment, Part One: The Pagan, Liberal and Socialist State

Ars gratia artis, "Art for the sake of art" is no argument when it endangers souls and we have a long-running television program that has made mincemeat of morality and yet, the Modernists in charge in Rome have seen fit to bless this trash that passes as art and entertainment. We're talking about the Vatican's endorsement of the raunchy cartoon series known worldwide as simply 'The Simpsons.' Nevermind that it has effected countless souls to fall away from the faith and take up the bad habits, yay, vices promoted by the writers of 'The Simpsons.' No, for some reason that defies all explanation except that those in Rome have long ago sold out and sold their souls, they have given 'The Simpsons' not only a thumbs-up, but also have the nerve to proclaim that Homer and Bart are 'Catholic'. Yeah, talk about parallel universes! But then this is the same group who have fabricated the Fatima message which is easy to do when you've fabricated an entire new religion that out-protestants the Protestants. Truly the inmates are running the asylum. Cain tries to make heads or tails out of this topsy turvy mindset in his no-holds barred editorial From Springfield to South Park to Hell

    The devil is great at scrabbling the path to Heaven with the roadblocks of anger, sloth, pride, lust, envy, greed and gluttony. They are called the Seven Deadly Sins or Capital Sins and not to capitalize on the corresponding virtues that stave off temptation to these sins is a sure way to lose the game of life, with the penalty being everlasting perdition. Because satan is so crafty and knows it would not be alluring if he showed sin for all its ugliness, he dresses it up to look inviting. Man in his fallen human nature is the perfect foil for the fallen angel who is the master of deceit. If we are not aware of the consequences we can easily be lured away, confused, even bewitched and bewildered. Those seven sins are the chief reason hell is so populated today. Do you really want to help the prince of darkness add to the numbers or do you want to love your fellow man enough to want salvation for him and do all in your power to know the Faith in order to keep the Faith and share that Faith with others by letting them know, as laid out in Step Fifteen, the Seven Ways to Lose One's Soul

    Saint Luke, a native of Antioch, was converted by St. Paul, and accompanied him on many of his journeys. St. Luke is best known as the historian of the New Testament. He is far and away the most prolific writer among the evangelists and Paul himself. Luke was meticulous in gathering information from the lips of the apostles and could very well be the patron of reporters considering his prowess for exacting facts. He wrote, as he tells, all things in order. The Acts of the Apostles were written as a sequel to his Gospel. Luke is represented by the calf or ox, the sacrificial animal, because his Gospel begins with the account of Zachary, the priest, the father of John the Baptist. This man of medicine is called a painter as well for a painting of the Virgin in St. Mary Major at Rome is ascribed to him traced to being discovered by the Empress Eudoxia in Jerusalem, which she sent to Constantinople. it is certain that St. Luke was an artist, at least to the extent that his graphic descriptions of the Annunciation, Visitation, Nativity, Shepherds. Presentation, the Shepherd and lost sheep, etc., have become the inspiring and favorite themes of Christian painters. He died the death of a martyr, and was buried at Thebes in Boeotia. His relics were brought to Constantinople in 357. For more, see Saint Luke the Evangelist

Because the feast of the holy Evangelist St. Luke John Gregory provides the Haydock Commentary for the Epistle and Gospel for the Double of the Second Class Feast of St. Luke the Evangelist, one of the authors of the Gospels and to whom the Acts of the Apostles are attributed. The focus is on evangelizing and the manner in which Our Lord followed the same procedure as Moses did for the twelve tribes in assigning disciples to each of the twelve apostles for a total of 72 in all and instructed them to trust in God's providence and express true charity through their work for the Lord and expect charity in return for their labors, for Jesus says "a laborer is worth his hire", indicating the need for those who work in the harvest for souls to be taken care of in the proper way of anyone else who would provide a service. Perhaps, until Pentecost, few of those disciples and even the Apostles realized what Christ meant when He said, "The harvest indeed is great, but the laborers are few. Pray ye, therefore, the Lord of the harvest, that He send laborers into His harvest. Go: Behold I send you as lambs among wolves." Later, as we know in St. John 21: 15-16, Jesus tells His Apostles, especially Peter to "Feed My lambs." His reference to lambs is significant for He is the Lamb of God Who has sent His "Lambs Among Wolves"

This special feature is provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. With the type so small in most bibles, we publish it here in larger type 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 Twenty-First Sunday after Pentecost Fr. Haydock provides a few commentaries, but the key is not in the commentaries but in the Scriptures themselves for St. Paul's words to the Ephesians are some of the most beautiful imagery he has employed in his epistles. In addition, today's Gospel is so applicable to the very situation going on today in Washington, Wall Street and throughout every home in America and the prospect that thought failure has been rewarded, those whose debts have been forgiven with a bailout are not passing that same mercy on to the common man. Even more pertinent is that few are realizing this whole crisis doesn't amount to a hill of beans in God's eyes if our hearts are not pure and therein the final verse from our Lord says it all: "So also shall My heavenly Father do to you, if you forgive not every one his brother from your hearts." John provides the short commentary for Twentieth Sunday after Pentecost "Unless you see signs and wonders"

   Over three centuries ago Jesus chose a devout nun to provide us with a divine promise if we follow devotions to His Most Sacred Heart. He explained to her the parameters of the Twelve Promises of the Sacred Heart and instructed her on how to pray during Holy Hour. Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque was born at Verosvres in the diocese of Autun on July 22, 1647. When only three years old she already had the greatest fear of the smallest sin. Indeed, the very word "sin" frightened her exceedingly. And before she was quite four years of age, without anyone suggesting them to her, she clearly pronounced the words, "O my God, I consecrate my purity to Thee, for my whole life: I vow to Thee perpetual chastity." Even as a mere tot she loved Jesus and Mary above all things; and as soon as she had learned to say the rosary, she recited it every day. Some time after she had made her First Holy Communion, God sent her a grievous sickness that lasted four years. Then Margaret had recourse to Our Lady. She promised that if that dear Mother would cure her she would become a Sister. Scarcely had she uttered the words, when she was cured. After some hesitation she entered the Order of the Visitation of Paray-le-Monial at the age of twenty-three. The Sacred Heart of Jesus manifested Himself to her several times; through her He willed to make this devotion known to the world. She died October 7,1690. She was canonized by Pope Benedict XV on Ascension Thursday, May 13, 1920. Pope Pius XI extended her feast to the whole Church on June 28, 1929. For more, see St. Margaret Mary Alacoque and Suffering For The Love of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus

The Ides of October bring us the feast of the holy religious Spaniard St. Teresa of Avila who founded the Discalced Carmelites. It was this obedient, but feisty nun who would not compromise or cut corners in striving to fulfill the reforms of Trent in blotting out laxity and returning to the roots of monasticism and Catholic truth. She traveled throughout her beloved land establishing religious houses despite tremendous opposition from within her own ranks and her superiors. Were it not for a few wise superiors, she might never have succeeded. But she had the faith and trust in God to carry out her God-given mission even though it took a great toll on her health and eventually her life. She died on the cusp of the Julian and Gregorian calendar. The last day of the Julian calendar was Thursday, October 4 in 1582 and this was followed immediately by the first day of the Gregorian calendar which was Friday, October 15, 1582 and that is why her feast is celebrated on October 15. To this day her body remains incorrupt. For more on this inspiring saint, see Saint Teresa of Avila

Chilean Miners being rescued one by one        Foreman of the 33, Luis Urzua, the last out        President Sebastián Piñera

Also see Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey's inspiring piece,
Another October 13 Miracle

The men to the left are the 33 miners miraculously rescued on Wednesday, October 13 exactly 69 days since they were trapped over 2000 feet beneath the desert floor in a Chilean mine. As the days waned on and they clung to hope through prayer and common sense, they became known throughout Chile and the world as the "angels of the bicentennial" and indeed the angels played a role, real angels assisting Our Lady in carrying out the Miracle of the Sons 93 years to the day of the Miracle of the Sun. There was a reason for the miracle at Fatima and Mary's messages. To this day we have not responded as she asked. Soon it will be too late. Editor Michael Cain shares the prophetic words of a priest from 1935 who foresaw our very time of 2010. If we don't start making expiation soon for our public sins, it definitely will be too late. We have much work to do and we cannot sit on our laurels or cower in the shadows. It's face time, not on face book but in the public square where all Catholics are called to pray the holy Rosary this coming Saturday, October 16. Calling the Church Militant to arms. Cain lays it out in Soul Rescue by Expiation begins at High Noon!

As we close within seven years of the 100th Anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions, we are reminded all the more of the dismal failure to obey the Blessed Virgin Mary's request imparted to three innocent Portugal peasant children to alert the Church of the dangers ahead and how to stave off this disaster. Her Rosary was the chief answer and only a handful remain true to that today. In fact, the Rosary is the one link to conciliar Catholics that gives us hope they will be given the grace to truly see they are in a no-win situation in the conciliar church.

    Through grace and prayer they will see it is not only our country that is in grave trouble but Modern Rome itself. Pray they will see that they cannot obey those who are against Christ as He has said numerous times in Sacred Scripture. For those who are still faithful to Our Lady's holy Rosary there is hope that they will realize the apostasy and flee the false church, realizing Christ's true Church is not in Modern Rome, but wherever a true priest confects bread and wine into His Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity. This is only possible in the Traditional Immemorial Latin Mass of All Time as it was at the time of His Holiness Pope Pius XII's death.

    Because the true popes from Pope Benedict XV through Pius XII did not heed Our Lady's plea, Russia was not consecrated to her Immaculate Heart. Consequently, Russia's errors have indeed spread where communism permeates nearly every country today, including the U.S.A. Abortion and sexual perversity originated behind the Iron Curtain. The Mother of God knew but man thought that's all superstitious. Well, so much for those thinkers. Despite the shell game played by the conciLIARS in 2000 with the ridiculous version of the Third Secret, we know from testimonies that the essence of it is about the Great Apostasy. There is much conjecture over a version that was released recently which supposedly bears the fingerprint of the real Sister Lucia. If so, then the last three sentences of the one-page purported message could be the clue:

    "The cathedral of Rome must be destroyed and a new one built in Fatima. If 69 weeks after this order is announced, Rome continues its abomination, the city will be destroyed. Our Lady told us that this is written,[in] Daniel 9:24-25 and Matthew 21:42-44."
Consider that from the death of Papa Pacelli on October 9, 1958 through the tainted Conclave of October 1958 and the very controversial election of Angelo Roncalli and then his so-called impromptu announcement to hold a council until February 8, 1960 when Modern Rome put out a press release that the Third Secret would not be released in a devious effort to cast doubt on what had already been fully approved and twist Fatima to the Modernists' agenda: it was exactly "69 weeks." Could it that Rome has already been destroyed by conciliarism? Just a thought considering there are no other answers readily available. The best answer? Prayer! Pray her holy Rosary and say daily The Fatima Prayers below:
      The Fatima Prayers

      My God, I believe, I adore, I trust and I love Thee; and I beg pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not trust, and do not love Thee.

      (repeat the above 3 times then bow your head in reciting the following:)

          O Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in tabernacles throughout the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in unison with the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners.

          O Most Holy Trinity, I addore Thee! My God, my God, I love Thee in the Most Blessed Sacrament!

          O my Jesus, it is for love of Thee, in reparation for the offenses committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary and for the conversion of poor sinners.

    The path to perdition is wide and paved with good intentions. If one were to realize how ugly sin is, they'd never sin. However, the devil is crafty and devious and so he seeks to twist everything, trying to portray sin as allowable and something that is no big deal. Did he not try the same in the Garden of Eden? Why would he change strategy since? Sadly, in these very times when the Great Apostasy is so prevalent, lucifer has been able to make so many things sacrilegious and blasphemous today amidst an apathetic society that fails to take heed of God's Laws and the consequences of sin. Because of that the vast majority have disregarded St. Paul's stern warning in 2 Thessalonians 2: 10 and bought into the "operation of error" and "consented to iniquity." They have rationalized their consciences into thinking God is an all-loving while totally missing the point that the Omniscient One is also equally all-just and He will judge each and every soul both in our particular judgment and the final judgment. As most go about their lives stubbornly clinging to their own wills and rejecting God's will, they're oblivious to the fact that one can never enter Heaven in the state of mortal sin. Without putting on the armor of God and being in the state of sanctifying grace, we are puddy in the devil's hands and dead meat. Literally! In step fourteen of this series we treat Mortal Sin and the Occasions of this deadly sin and something we must avoid or else it will be the Sure-fire Way to Hell

Though it is not a Sunday feast, considering it is a special feast of Our Lady today, John Gregory has provided the Haydock Commentary for the Double of the Second Class Feast of the Divine Maternity for October 11. In the commentary, Father George Leo Haydock provided the proof of Our Lord's humility in subjecting Himself to His Mother Mary and step-father St. Joseph. Being the daughter of the Father, the spouse of the Holy Ghost, Mary is the Mother of the Son, thus manifesting to all through holy Scripture that she is the Mother of God - Theotokos (Θεοτόκος)and therefore due all the honor of such a title with the attributes illustrated in today's epistle from Ecclesiastes. Christ set the example of how all children should treat their parents in being obedient and respectful to the lawful Authority God granted. If Jesus could be subject to His Mother and honor her thusly then and forever after with the heavenly edicts bestowed upon her from the Cross, then lifting her up into Heaven and crowning her as Queen of Heaven and earth. If God so honored Mary thusly, should we do less? Honoring Θεοτόκος (Theotokos)

We all know satan apes God and he did exactly that with the heretical council known as Vatican II. What better way to fool the faithful than opening on a feast day that acknowledged the dogma of Mary's divine Maternity? That's exactly what the antipope John XXIII did, and it closed on another of her important feast days in 1965, her Immaculate Conception. It was deception that allowed Vatican II and deception that has followed ever since. Christ said it so clearly in St. Matthew 7: 15-21, and St. Paul warned in Galatians 1: 8-10, 2 Thessalonians 2:5-11, and 2 Timothy 4: 2-5, as well as the beloved disciple's words in 1 John 2: 15-22 and the Apocalypse, Chapter 17: 1-24 in revealing the fate of the false church. These are but a few sources from divine revelation that have foretold the Great Apostasy. We didn't even mention Our Lord's words in Chapters 24 and 25 of St. Matthew. Add to this Catholic tradition and the warnings by saints and Our Lady in numerous Church-approved apparitions such as at Quito in the 17th century, La Salette in the 19th century and Fatima in the 20th century. We are now in the 21st century and can readily see how this is the very time foretold - the time of the Great Apostasy. It began 48 years ago today and continues to ravage souls. To see how a bad tree cannot stand but is destined for the everlasting fires, we recommend checking out Novus Ordo Watch, as well as Tradition in Action which, though they insist they are not sedevacantist, what they publish proves time and again that the conciliar popes could not possibly be true popes. Two of the best to illustrate how the counterfeit church of conciliarism is collapsing and why all Catholics need to flee the false church of Apocalypse 17 are Traditio and, of course, Dr.Thomas A. Droleskey's magnificent articles at Christ or chaos. The latter two have pinpointed in their most recent posts several egregious heresies by the last two conciliar antipopes, all made possible by their succeeding conciliar antipopes or, as St. John says, "antichrists."

This special feature is provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. With the type so small in most bibles, we publish it here in larger type 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 Twentieth Sunday after Pentecost the cupboard is pretty bare as far as any commentary accept for affirming that the man's son was healed the instant our Lord said "Thy son liveth." An interesting aside to this week's liturgy is Christ's words that "Unless you see signs and wonders, you believe not." This is the exact scenario we have today where so many do not believe unless they can see for themselves. This skepticism has grown where they have not understood St. Paul's words to the Ephesians to avoid luxuries and things that will cloud your submission to the will of God. Alas, too few have followed this advice and proved true Paul's words "redeeming the time, because the days are evil." John provides the short commentary for Twentieth Sunday after Pentecost "Unless you see signs and wonders"

In the midst of the Protestant Revolution ravaging Europe, God rose up a simple, humble but zealous priest, inspiring him to overcome all odds to not only found a religious order, but initiate the Society for the Propagation of the Faith as well as starting the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine as an integral part of the Counter-Reformation. That man was St. John Leonardi from the region of Tuscany who touched the world with his influence and grace. Quite possibly this may never had been possible had it not been for the holy martyrs that preceded him in previous centuries such as the very saints commemorated this day with the feast of San Giovanni Leonardi. That would be the holy bishop St. Denis, also known as St. Dionysius and his companion martyrs, the holy priest St. Rusticus and the deacon St. Eleutherius. For more on today's saints, see St. John Leonardi

   We could not think of a better day to introduce a new feature here and that is bringing you a chapter a day for meditation on the wondrous, Church-approved, plethora of prophesies revealed to St. Bridget of Sweden in the fourteenth century which, as you reflect on Our Lord's words to her, you will realize they hold even truer in our very time today. In an effort for each person to intensify their spiritual life and strive toward holiness, we present, thanks to the resources of Catholic-Saints.net, a chapter each day so readers can meditate on the contents of each short chapter and not be overwhelmed by too much. We also encourage readers to begin today, on St. Bridget's feastday, the One Year Devotion of the Fifteen Prayers of St. Bridget in expiation for the number of lashes and scourges Jesus received during His terrible Passion. As the world grows darker, we provide the Light in how to apply It to our own lives so that we can truly live in and love Him alone. If we strive to do that, we will have all we need and, as He has promised, we will have it in abundance. Isn't it time to soul-stretch and exercise those prayers? You can find them at

   The Feast of the the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary is an occasion to bring you inspiration from the venerated Benedictine Abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger for, sadly, too many are unaware of the tremendous power of the heavenly weapon bestowed on St. Dominic Gusman for the specific purpose of putting down heresies. Since that time the Rosary has proven to be the ultimate artillery to turn back the enemy from Lepanto to Viena to countless other examples, a few of which Abbe Gueranger treats in his short essay on the Feast of the Holy Rosary which still in his time was celebrated on the First Sunday of October, but in 1913 His Holiness Pope St. Pius X set the Double of the Second Class feast for October 7, the date of the victory at Lepanto and superseding the previous feast of Our Lady of Victory as established by His Holiness Pope St. Pius V. Gueranger shows how the Church in her wisdom has mapped out the liturgical year in such perfect fashion which he explained his his marvelous fifteen volume masterpiece The Liturgical Year in Volume 14, pages 295-300 which we bring you here in The Lasting Magnificence, Grace, and Power of the Holy Rosary.

    While Atila Sinke Guimaraes weighs in on why he doesn't believe the 'beatification' of John Henry Cardinal Newman is kosher because of the lapse of rules, we should remind readers that he is right; not just because Canon Law is not being followed, but also because only a true pope can officially elevate a person toward being recognized as Blessed. Modern Rome has no true ecclesial authority in the eyes of God and the perennial, infallible Magisterium of Eternal Rome. In studying Newman's life and writings, Atila, who has provided numerous examples of the damaging documentation of Newman's errors, has come to the conclusion that Newman is definitely less than worthy of such an honor and what the circus in Birmingham last month proved is that this is merely Benedict's modus operandi for furthering the agenda of Vatican II. After all, what else would you expect from the robber barons who eclipsed the true Church at Vatican II and now are so devious and desperate as to try to pose one as 'blessed' who, a century before Vatican II, actually aped the agenda of the Modernists? Just the fact that there are serious suspicions of Newman's possible homosexuality with his long time friend should raise enough red flags unless there are questions about such tendencies in the Modern Vatican itself today...and there most definitely are! Atila calls the so-called 'miracle' attributed to Newman as very dubious. We would call a real miracle occuring when the faithful truly realize the fact that the "operation of error, to believe a lie" (cf. 2 Thess. 2: 10) is the conciliar church in our time! Devastating, but true. As for Newman, Atila lays out his arguments in Doubts About Newman's Beatification

    It does no good to blame Adam and Eve because that's past history and the one we can really thank is the Second Adam - Jesus Christ for it is through His merits by His death and resurrection that we gain the opportunity for everlasting life as the Catechism has always taught n why we strive to stay in the state of grace received first at baptism to rid our souls of Original Sin. However, contrary to Protestant thinking, everything we do following baptism we are responsible for and must answer to God for, due to man's penchant for bad, we are not perfect and must work hard to avoid actual and venial sins and be sure we never commit a mortal sin. The latter will be covered next week, but for this week we focus on Original and Actual sins for, by God's design of free will we are grist for the world, the flesh and the devil unless we remember why we were baptized and obey God in all things great and small, because the small sins, though venial, still greatly offend the One Who gave us life. In step thirteen of this series we deal with the why of Man's Fallen Human Nature

    The humble Francis, born in 1182, was the founder of the Order of Friars Minor. Chosen by God to be a living manifestation to the world of Christ's poor and suffering life on earth, he was early inspired with a burning love of poverty and humiliation. Divine desire burned in him so mightily as to kindle a like desire in other hearts. Many joined him, and were constituted by Pope Innocent III into a Religious Order. He lived at the time when the feudal system was disappearing, and Christian democracy was dawning. St. Francis undertook to teach to this generation a spiritual language suited to its new aspirations. He led the people to devotion towards the sacred humanity and the person of the Redeemer, a devotion which has continued to increase. He set the example for clergy and people of detachment from worldly wealth and worldly honors. His reform was carried out not by rebellion, but in accord with the head of the Church. It was the papal authority, which from the first directed that overwhelming current of new life and evangelical mysticism loosed by the saint, and incorporated it in the service of the Church. For more on this man who founded the largest religious order to ever serve Holy Mother Church, see Saint Francis of Assisi.

   Francis took Our Lord literally and it was that kind of innocence, dedication and devotion that helped spread the Faith over several centuries. Today revisionists color, in the same manner as they do Church history, the tableau differently than truth, portraying St. Francis of Assisi, as if he were a flower child and all he wanted was peace and tolerance. Au contraire. Yes, he wanted peace as does everyone, but on God's terms, not man's. That is what the Modernists do not understand. They expect Catholics to compromise with the world. St. Francis was never a compromiser nor can any true Catholic be. Obama sought to convert the Muslims; the conciliar church seeks to patronize them. We share with you what was posted on NovusOrdoWatch.org written by the founder of the Order of Friars Minor and taken from Works of the Seraphic Father St. Francis Of Assisi, Washbourne, 1882, pp. 248-250 and we have added emphasis and scriptural references:

    1. The time is fast approaching in which there will be great trials and afflictions; perplexities and dissensions, both spiritual and temporal, will abound; the charity of many will grow cold, and the malice of the wicked will increase. (cf. St. Luke 18: 7-8)

    2. The devils will have unusual power, the immaculate purity of our Order, and of others, will be so much obscured that there will be very few Christians who will obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with loyal hearts and perfect charity. At the time of this tribulation a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavour to draw many into error and death. (cf. Galatian 1: 8-10; 2 Thessalonians 2: 5-11; and 1 Timothy 4: 2-7)

    3. Then scandals will be multiplied, our Order will be divided, and many others will be entirely destroyed, because they will consent to error instead of opposing it. (cf. St. Matthew, chapter 24; and 2 Thessalonians 2: 5-11)

    4. There will be such diversity of opinions and schisms among the people, the religious and the clergy, that, except those days were shortened, according to the words of the Gospel, even the elect would be led into error, were they not specially guided, amid such great confusion, by the immense mercy of God. (cf. St. Matthew 24: 22-24)

    5. Then our Rule and manner of life will be violently opposed by some, and terrible trials will come upon us. Those who are found faithful will receive the crown of life; but woe to those who, trusting solely in their Order, shall fall into tepidity, for they will not be able to support the temptations permitted for the proving of the elect. (cf. 2 Thessalonians 2: 10-11; 2 Timothy 4: 2-5; Apocalypse 17: 2-18)

    6. Those who preserve their fervour and adhere to virtue with love and zeal for the truth, will suffer injuries and, persecutions as rebels and schismatics; for their persecutors, urged on by the evil spirits, will say they are rendering a great service to God by destroying such pestilent men from the face of the earth. but the Lord will be the refuge of the afflicted, and will save all who trust in Him. And in order to be like their Head, [Christ] these, the elect, will act with confidence, and by their death will purchase for themselves eternal life; choosing to obey God rather than man, they will fear nothing, and they will prefer to perish rather than consent to falsehood and perfidy. (cf. St. Matthew 10: 32-42; 24: 23-44; St. Mark 4: 19-32; 13: 4-33; 2 Thessalonians 2: 10-14; Apocalypse 17: 5-18)

    7. Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor, but a destroyer. (cf. Galatians 1: 8-10; 2 Thessalonians 2: 5-11; 2 Timothy 4: 2-7; 1 John 2: 18, 23)

    His Holiness Pope Pius XI canonized Mary Frances Teresa Martin on May 17, 1925 and established her feast for October 3 in the traditional liturgy. This year her feast falls on Rosary Sunday in the month of the Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary and it is fitting for she was known for offering roses to Christ and what better roses than the rosary, a spiritual bouquet of roses offered to Heaven. It is each small rose or Ave offered up to make a large bouquet that receives Heaven's blessing. God is pleased when we do the little things as well as we can, offering all for His honor and glory.

    St. Therese of the Child Jesus was made of this mold. She was born of saintly parents at Alencon (Orne) on January 2, 1873. She was educated by the Benedictine Nuns at Lisieux. After her ninth year she tried to enter the Carmelites, and put her case before the Bishop of Bayeux and Pope Leo XIII, whom she visited. At the age of fifteen she was allowed to enter the Carmel at Lisieux (April 9, 1888). She died at the age of twenty-four. There was nothing extra-ordinary about her religious life; she was perfect in her simplicity, humility, charity, her love of God and her trust in Him. She offered herself as a victim to the "merciful love of the good God."

    She was just a little child in the arms of Jesus. Her way of sanctity was a little way; Pius XI said: "We wish that St. Theresa's secret of sanctity should be made known to every one of our children. We have set her before the children of the Church as a striking and most precious example." Countless miracles have been wrought through her intercession. On her death bed she said: "I do not intend to remain idle in Heaven. My longing is to labor even there for the Church and souls. Our Lord will work wonders for me that will infinitely surpass my boundless desire. After my death I shall let fall a shower of roses." For more on this saint who did the ordinary things in such extraordinary ways, see Saint Therese of Lisieux

The Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary

    On this day when we celebrate our Guardian Angels, they're there to help us in everything we do. That includes when you can't physically get to Holy Mass, such as for those who cannot attend Holy Mass on a daily basis, or even on Sundays because quite possibly a Traditional Latin Mass is not near. You can always send your Angel to the Holy Sacrifice on your behalf in order to join the untold choirs of Angels adoring Christ come down upon the altar. Click on the poem below that illustrates this if you want to print it out:

The Summer Hiatus is over, it's back to daily publication with this issue. We continue with our special feature of highlighting special features throughout the past ten years for each month, providing this month Diadems of the Decade for October. We also provide for your inspiration John Gregory's collection of reflections/meditations and study of each of the 15 Mysteries of the Rosary along with the 15 Promises of the Rosary during this month dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary. You can see the October Propers for the entire month.

   We just celebrated our 21st anniversary on the feast of Saint Michael the Archangel or the founding of this apostolate, which has been under the auspices of SANCTUS (acronym for Save All Necessary Catholic Traditions in the United States> since 2002. In one month we will celebrate on November 1, our 15th year on the web, with only Traditio.com beating us to the punch worldwide. This publication has always been dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary and so it's appropriate that we return on this First Friday of the month of the Holy Rosary. Tomorrow is the final Saturday of the dedicated Traditional Dominican Bishop Robert McKenna's excellent 15 Saturday Rosary Crusade and, of course, First Saturday Devotions. But first things first and that is today's feast, commemoration if you will, of the holy Bishop and Confessor Saint Remigius on this Feria Day and
the prayers of the Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart and Act of Reparation along with the Litany of the Sacred Heart at First Friday Devotions. Oh, and don't forget, this is the Month of the Holy Rosary. Please pray as many as your state in life permits in offering powerful spiritual bouquets to Heaven. After all, we've seen at Lepanto, in Austria, and countless other times how powerful a weapon Mary's holy Psalter can be. Let's use it daily and often!

        It has definitely been a decade of transition, as this editor dubs it - Transition to Tradition, our last opportunity before God really lowers the boom. Looking back, it doesn't take a brain surgeon to see the deterioration in society as the ranks of the good, decent ones striving for holiness grow smaller and the enemy flanks are massing larger and larger, more threatening than ever. With every day we inch closer to the apocalypse foretold in the book of the same name, contrary to Protestant and conciliar concerns that it was always called "Revelation." Would St. John the Evangelist be surprised, and for that matter the holy Doctor of the Church who translated it and several of the holy hierarchs who ratified the Scriptures at various major councils of the Church, most recently at the dogmatic Council of Trent. Many closet conciliarists reading this may not be familiar with that council since the robber barons have sought to eliminate any mention of Trent in the same manner as the U.S. Government is doing everything it can to wipe out any mention of God. For both these offenses there are consequences, grave ones and we are beginning to see now that both anti-Catholic campaigns by the counterfeit church of conciliarism and the United States Congress and its cohorts in the Obama administration both in Washington and Chicago are getting more desperate as each day passes. Those not grounded in grace had best get right with God before it is too late. Call it "gloom and doom" if you want, but that doom can be eternal and that would cause anyone gloom. Can you say fire and brimstone? To remind you, we will be bringing you throughout this year "Diadems of the Decade" featuring an article from each month of each of the past ten years. We're not saying these are the "Best" of the decade for how do you choose which ones are the best? Yet, they are gems that we want to share for we're sure you will treasure them and realize, like fine jewels, they are still as valuable today especially when investing in souls. For this edition, we present a diadem for each October from 2000 through October 2009.

This column ran ten years ago in which Cyndi Cain, in her Symphony of Suffering column, cautioned all as to how we've let down our part of the bargain, so to speak, with the Communion of Saints. Society, over the last forty years or so, has become satan's pawn now more than ever. Cyndi illustrated how long gone are the days where roles were defined simply, as God defines the role of man and woman. Long gone are the days when "children were to be seen and not heard!" Today, it's the child that is always heard, and the parent is somehow, inexplicably found to be the one in trouble because how dare we deny our child anything!" She explained how our sins of omission have become the conscience of today, and that is to say a conscience, individual as well as collective, that is distorted by satan, who has provoked these sins of omission to run rampant. Abortion and homosexuality have become the norm because of our sin of omission. Hollywood and Madison Avenue control our kids because of our sin of omission. While songs about broken hearts permeate the airwaves, the Hearts we should be most concerned over are the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts because of our sins of omission. Cyndi asks, Why have we omitted the sins of omission? .

Why didn't the last Ecumenical Council condemn communism? The secret accord made at Metz supplies an answer.

Nine years ago Atila Sinke Guimaraes pointed out the embrace of Islam by the media in the wake of the terrorist attacks began with the acceptance of the infidel faith by the Pope himself when he kissed the Qu'ran. One has to wonder. What's even more troubling, very, very troubling, is the question: What would those who fought and died under the Cross of Christ against the scourge of the Crescent Moon say about John Paul II's acceptance of Islamism by making the universal statement that Christians, Jews and Muslims "worship the same God"? The last we checked nineteen hundred years ago, nine hundred years ago, nine years ago and nine minutes ago, both Jew and Muslim have never accepted Jesus Christ as the Son of God nor do they accept the Holy Ghost as the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity. How then can they worship the same God? It is impossible and Wojtyla and Ratzinger's claims to pacify man while greatly offending God are visible manifestations of apostasy, all betrayed by The Kiss and the Blood

Abstaining from pleasures of the flesh can provide priests greater treasure in the pleasures of the soul

In light of Benedict XVI so openly embracing an Anglican bishopess in Westminster Cathedral during his most recent sellout in the United Kingdom, one that Henry VIII would be most proud of and which Sts. Thomas More and John Fisher would have turned over in their graves, except they were in Heaven, we bring you a brief column by Mario Derksen that ran eight years ago. With so many liberals, especially the new squeaky voice trying to make noise - "Voice of the Faithful" - lobbying for a relaxation of celibacy restrictions that would allow married priests, Mario presented a succinct reply to those who cry that celibacy is the "albatross" which has caused vocations to dry up. Au contraire. Rather celibacy is the anchor to assuring stability of the Faith. The fact that so many have relaxed their own consciences shows that a man of God must be pure - inside and out. Mario provided Scriptural and Ecclesial justification for why celibacy is mandatory. The Apostle Paul had a good idea and throughout her history, the Church, in her wisdom has shown the fruits of priests living a chaste life. Remain chaste, vocations will flourish. Mario verifies this in his column Why Celibacy?

Turning the tables on those who think man's will is more important than God's will and those who regard temporal things more important than spiritual matters

Back in 2003 we first introduced an up and coming writer to The DailyCatholic cadre of traditional writers who, like many, first cut his teeth here. That would be Gabriel Garnica, an educator and attorney. In his first article he tackled one of the problems facing Catholics and that is the abomination that has polluted every conciliar chancery, diocese and parish. Heaven is once again under attack by those who would seek to ignore and overthrow God's majesty and authority. Gabriel's notes have been music to tradtional ears but unpleasant tones to those who continue to stubbornly buy into the misguided notions so prevalent and spreading in today's Catholic world because of blind obedience and the very fact that most do not want to know the truth. Gabriel sounded the clarion in asking us to take up the whip and drive the modernists out of holy Mother Church as he explained in his column Overturning the Moneychangers

The wraiths of today have incurred the wrath of God

Seven years ago, Father Lawrence Smith presented a fascinating, mind-probing essay on defending the sensus Catholicus of J.R.R. Tolkien. This was in concert with the immense success of the Lord of the Rings series. While some have tried to delve inside the creative mind of Tolkien, they fail to realize the guiding light that illuminated his ventures into the world of Middle Earth - his Catholic Faith and the solid sensus Catholicus of his writings. Fans of Tolkien might find this interesting. Critics of Tolkien might find this frustrating. Fans might become critics or critics might become fans on reading it. Or nothing might come of it all. Whatever the reader senses, Father's piece was an answer to a fellow priest's inquiry on the English master and his work. Father answered it in his indubitable, witty and thought-provoking style that hopefully prompted many to read it again and again for more of the gems of his writing on the writings of Tolkien and The Theology of Tolkien's Mythology

Is the Pope Catholic? Remember when that was intended as a joke? Well in the past half decade it's no longer a joke, especially to God, because the answer in this conciliar era is a resounding "No!"

Half a decade ago editor Michael Cain wrapped up the two week foray into a hitherto non-discussed subject and that is whether the conciliar popes from John XXIII through Benedict XVI were Catholic. Having weighed all the essays to date, Cain applied Our Lord's words in Sacred Scripture and the disciplinary measures set in place to assure the faithful whether one elected to the Chair of Peter is indeed a Pope before God and man and Cain asserted that, true to Christ's words, "no man can serve two masters." Either the conciliar popes have served God uncompromisingly and preserved the constituted evangelic Tradition and the purity of the orthodox Faith and Christian religion without altering anything their predecessors have defined and declared, or they have undertaken such a blasphemous venture as to incur their own excommunication and therefore forfeit all authority per Christ's words and Pope Paul IV's Papal Bull Cum ex apostolatus officio which is still in force. It can't be both. Either they are Catholic or not. There can be no middle road. Cain broke down the doctrinal deductions in his editorial The Syllogism of Sedevacantism

When it comes to telling the truth no question is ever too difficult. When it comes to avoiding the truth no true answer is possible.

Four years ago Griff Ruby asked if there were any sedevacantists really so silly and foolish as to be unable to answer "Ten items that Sedevancantists can't or won't talk about." Says who? Not Griff, for he tackled this head-on in something that resulted in a little known 'Letters to the Editor' posted in The Remnant from a California physician who thought he was going to trip up those who realize the conciliar popes are not Catholic. This doctor hadn't counted on Griff who illustrated how there really is no question that cannot be answered. Yet often times, sincerity is masked when certain questions are asked with the purpose of trapping or intimidating one so they will not reply. Such are often intended not as sincere questions, but posed in the very same manner of questioning that Jesus faced with the Scribes and Pharisees - the Hypocrites of the Sanhedrin, whom our Lord castigated so vigorously with such vivid imagery in Matthew 23. Often times such questioning is one's way of throwing stones, and by posing the questions without a balanced response, are often intended to hurt or to pile up mortar to hide the asker's own ignorance or other ulterior motives. Griff showed that the questions were really not that difficult when answered through the truth of Faith. Unfortunately, as we suspected of the hypocritical actions of the Resist and Recognize crowd, The Remnant never printed for their readers 10 Simple Answers to 10 Easy Questions

There is a method to the Muslim madness and we had better wake up soon and realize we cannot tolerate it!

Three years ago we featured a gem of the past penned by one simply known as Doctrina who in 2002 first wrote the words that today are on everyone's mind as the Muslim hordes overrun Europe and threaten our own shores in the United States with the threat of erecting a mosque wherever the infidel has conquered. That would be the World Trade Center, demolished on September 11, 2001 by radical Islamists, who are no different than the ruthless Saracens of the time of the Crusades, the bloodthirsty Turks at Lepanto and in Austria or the plundering Moors in Spain - all out to destroy Christianity as laid out in the devious Koran. Doctrina lays out the statistics, causes and effects and asks why anyone would be surprised that they are merely carrying out the hateful vendetta subscribed by the apostate 'prophet' of the devil Mohammed in the seventh century, which gives even more credence that they would target the most Catholic countries in Spain and Austria and now France. Since this essay first ran, French legislation has outlawed burkas in public in an effort to curb the stealth stallions who have already left the barn. While many might advocate pigs' blood to thwart their efforts, it is really only the Most Precious Blood of Jesus which will halt the barbarians at the gates. Read the sad facts of a country, a world veering away from the true Faith in France: Eldest Daughter of the Church, and the First to go Muslim. Can England, Germany, Italy, and the US be far behind?

God works in mysterious ways and one way to fulfill the Fatima message is to begin with one priest and plant the seed for the conversion of Russia

Ninety one years after Our Lady appeared at the Cova in Fatima her request for the conversion of Russia could finally begin to show fruit even if it might seem but one bud on a massive tree. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey filed an article two years ago on the ordination of a traditional priest from Russia Fr. Alexander Kryssov who was baptized in Moscow by a Lithuanian priest and now returns to the heart of the Kremlin to begin the restoration of holy Mother Church one soul at a time. While many may say this is impossible, we are reminded of Christ's Own words in St. Matthew 19: 26, St. Mark 10: 27 and St. Luke 18: 27 that "with man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." What many fail to realize is that it is our Lord's Own holy Mother Mary who can tip the scale for making it all very possible in God's time, not ours. Patience is a virtue and we all need to be more patient and much, much more virtuous as we pray for Father and the growth of the true Faith not only in Russia but also throughout the world, so dulled and blinded by conciliarism. Tom explained in Planting the Seeds for the Triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart

Just two verses by St. Paul in 2 Thessalonians 2 tell us volumes in proving the Chair of Peter remains empty in these very times we live

Stephen Grieve hails from across the pond in England and provided the following series last year that we have incorporated into one set for this month's Diadems of the Decade so that those who continue to elude the inevitability that a true pope would never and could never do what the conciliar leaders in Rome have done for the past 50 years will realize it is not only past previous Popes and Catholic truth which convict the conciliar 'popes' but divine Revelation itself. Hopefully those deniers will be shaken out of their stupor by what Steve furnished for the basis for a sede vacante stance based on holy Scripture itself. With the Cross, Christ fulfilled all that was necessary for the Old Covenant and established the New Covenant with the ultimate Sacrifice on Calvary leading to His Resurrection and Ascension, leaving us His Spirit, the Third Person of the Holy Trinity to guide us with the Word and Tradition of the only Church Christ established on earth. Hard to argue with the divine Word as Steven traces the etimology of the Greek for two verses that speak volumes with his Examination of 2 Thessalonians 2: 6-7
