November 2012 (nov2012a.htm)

We continue this special feature 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 Double of the First Class Solemnity of All Saints, Father Haydock provides a plethora of commentaries on practically every verse of importance. While the Epistle identifies the sign by which we see what constitutes sinners striving to be saints - the sign of the cross, the Gospel lays out the formula for becoming saints with the Beatitudes which Christ our Lord explains with such clear simplicity that any and all can understand. These steps to sanctity are all contained in the Lord's Prayer, and the platform for being Christian in every way for saints are nothing but sinners striving to do God's holy will in all things no matter what the world, the flesh and the devil throw their way as indicated in the Haydock Commentary, Blessed are they who strive to be saints

Sixty one years ago today is the last time a true Pope spoke infallibly from the Chair of Peter. November 1 is the anniversary of Pope Pius XII's Apostolic Constitution which defined the Dogma of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven. He decreed this last dogmatic declaration on the Solemnity of All Saints, November 1, 1950. It is important to remind all that this is the last infallible pronouncement to date that was declared ex cathedra. It has been the intent by the conciliar apparatchiks to deemphasize The Blessed Mother's role and to minimize the importance of her holy Rosary, even going so far as to eradicate Fatima in their effort to placate and patronize Protestants and Pagans with the cockeyed reasoning that the Church must be more in tune with the world and its ways. Such erroneous thinking emerged from the Modernists and their man who put it all into motion, the man who called for aggiornamento, one of the men, along with Montini and Ratzinger, who had been censored. Oh, if only Pius had realized what lay ahead. For the final dogma from the last true Pope, see Munificentissimus Deus

Do we realize when we die we could very well be in the same predicament of the souls in Purgatory today? Do we feel comfortable with that? Father Paul O'Sullivan, O.P. helps us better understand what we must do. Do we realize how few pray for the souls in Purgatory today? Who knows, the way the conciliar church is going, they may soon attempt to do away with the Church Suffering. Don't put it past them. First Limbo, then Purgatory. After all, they've tacitly done away with hell, giving the impression to many that everyone goes to Heaven and there is no need to convert. If that's true, then the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the centerpiece of our Faith and the only true worship pleasing to God, is useless. True Catholics see the error in such logic for they know the truth of the fruits of the Holy Mass and prayers for the souls in Purgatory. They also know that the conciliar church has borne no good fruits and cannot per our Lord's words in St. Matthew 7: 15-20. It's another reason to read Fr. Paul O'Sullivan's poignant words Read Me or Rue It!

Because of the emphasis on the Church Suffering during November we bring you another excellent work from the noted pre-conciliar Irish priest Father Paul O'Sullivan, author of "The Wonders of the Mass" and several magnificent traditional booklets that have increased in popularity as the years go on and as the souls in Purgatory increase and sit, and wait, and wait, and wait because we here on earth are not doing our part as the Church Militant to relieve those poor souls of their suffering. Only by helping them can we avoid Purgatory, only by remaining in the State of Sanctifying Grace, assisting at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass - the centerpiece of our Faith and the only true worship pleasing to the Holy Trinity. Through the propitiatory sacrifice, our Rosaries, and making reparation for our own sins and those of others can we help the holy souls in Purgatory and hope to either cut down our time there or, by the grace of God and our total commitment as members of the Church Militant, to discover How to Avoid Purgatory

This special feature is provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary for the Twenty-Third Sunday after Pentecost in which Father George Leo Haydock provides a few commentaries that have been abandoned by the conciliar church, so intent on playing down, if not omitting miracles. In today's Gospel two miracles are performed by Christ, one who had the faith but to touch our Lord's garment which, of course, Jesus, by His divine nature, knew immmediately what was in her heart. So also with the young girl whom He had compassion on and rose from the dead, playing it down to diminish the sensational by merely saying "back up and put away your mourning for she is only sleeping." Of course, she was not, but as Fr. Haydock points out it is a way of saying that Christ alone can restore grace to the soul. It symbolizes that she was dead to mortal sin, but revived by sanctifying grace from the touch of our Lord for Christ is the key to all things in life and in death. Something we should all remember well in these times when man places so much emphasis on the temporal and turning to the finite for answers that can only be provided by the Infinite. "Thy faith hath made thee whole"

John Gregory provides the Haydock Commentary for the Twenty-Fourth Sunday after Pentecost the Propers, taken from the Fifth Sunday after Epiphany this year. Father Haydock illustrates in St. Paul's Epistle to the Colossians the essence of why holy Mother Church had, until Vatican II, so wisely and prudently guarded Sacred Scripture for fear of misinterpretation which led, as we know to Protestantism and heretical sects that today number over 33,000. While the Remnant has been whittled to but a few, God, in His mercy, will not separate the wheat from the chaff until that time when He will judge by placing the good wheat in His barn (Heaven) and the rest of the cockle, bundled into hell as Jesus relates via His parable in St. Matthew 13. Then many will realize that not all those who say 'Lord, Lord' will enter His kingdom, but only those who have done His holy will as Christ affirmed in St. Matthew 7 in assuring us we would know them by their fruits and the bad trees would be cast into the eternal fire. Separating the wheat from the cockle in God's time

   The Ides of November is the feast of a man the Church rightfully labels Magnus: Saint Albert the Great. He was a man who the devil definitely did not want to become a priest, let alone a Dominican. He was the only saint of the Church called "Great" who was not a Sovereign Pontiff. He was part and parcel of the fruits of the century of saints in the thirteenth century and played an integral role in the 14th Ecumenical Council. Albert staunchly defended his pupil once called "the dumb ox" against all kinds of calumny and subterfuge, and always in charity. Little did he or anyone else at the time realize how smart St. Thomas Aquinas truly was. Through the guidiance of the Holy Ghost and spurred by a deep love for Christ and His Church, St. Albert continued right up to his death with teaching the Faith even though he suffered in his later years from Alzheimer's well before it was even called that. This great saint was truly Albertus Magnus: Tutor to the Angelic Doctor

For the Twenty-Fifth Sunday after Pentecost the Propers are taken from the Sixth Sunday after Epiphany this year. John Gregory has provided these commentaries written by Father Leo George Haydock in which he comments on the essence of what Christ illustrates in His parables in St. Matthew's Gospel today of the mustard seed and the leavened bread to signify the growth of grace by those who seek the kingdom of Heaven by adhering to God's holy will. This is referenced in St. Paul's Epistle to the Thessalonians wherein the Apostle speaks of the profit garnered through faith, works, charity with patience and a labor of love. The mustard seed planted in the Holy Land by our Lord has spread its branches to every corner of the world, fulfilling the prophesies of the Old Testament prophets that the Messias will utter in parables things hidden from the foundation of the world. world as noted in the Haydock Commentary, The Prophets Prove the Profits of Grace

Josef Ratzinger and his conciliar cohorts could take a lesson from a man who fought the demons but stayed true to his Faith and turned darkness into light. Perhaps they can't see that because they remain in the dark shadows of apostasy and refuse to repent. St. John of the Cross would have much to say of these wolves in sheep's clothing who have so ravaged souls. Souls are what St. John sought to help and his work "The Dark Night of the Soul" has enlightened countless souls, encouraging them through the rough times to always persevere in the true Faith. On this feast of this holy Doctor of the Church we can learn alot from this Apostle of Perseverance

John Gregory provides the Haydock Commentary for the Twenty-Sixth Sunday after Pentecost and last of the Liturgical Year, thus completing the one-year cycle with the apocalyptic warning Christ echoes and which the Apostle Paul warns against in believing false teachers. So applicable to today's Great Apostasy and these commentaries, like a puzzle, all begin to fit together. Had Father Haydock been alive today, no doubt he would have seen how all the pieces fit to the tableau of the end times as Christ laid out and would have dealt even much further into the first verse of today's Gospel for indeed, as we have seen from Sacred Scripture in what the prophet Daniel foretold in the Old Testament of that abomination being seen in Macchabeus with the sacking of the altar and the end of the sacrifice with the false worship set up against and away from the altar, so also this is Christ's fulfillment of his omen seen so vividly in the sacriligious and, yes, demonic Novus Ordo abomination that has caused so much desolation of souls over the past 42 years during the 50 years of Apostasy. Despite the darkness in Christ's warning that very much dovetails into the Book of Apocalypse, His greatest message is the hope He sheds in assuring that His words shall not pass away. Christ Now and Always! But take hope as the Haydock Commentary shows in "When you shall see the Abomination of Desolation"

From the Feast of Saint Andrew the Apostle to the Nativity of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ one may begin a special prayer, simply called the "Christmas Prayer" to obtain favors if one's requests are in accordance with God's will. It is believed that whoever recites the following prayer with a pious heart 15 times a day from November 30th (this year December 1) to December 25th, will obtain whatever is asked. This Christmas prayer carries an Imprimatur from Archbishop Michael Augustine of New York City during the Pontificate of Pope Leo XIII on February 6, 1897. Since one should say this short prayer 15 times a day, it is recommended to memorize it so you can say it wherever you are or click here and clip the prayer so you may insert it in your missal or put on your bathroom mirror or wherever you would see it the most Christmas Novena Prayer

Today is the last day of the 2012 Liturgical Year. It is holy Mother Church's New Year's Eve, if you will. While the apostate Vatican 2 church expanded to a three-year cycle gutting the beauty and impact of the orthodox traditional Catholic calendar, those who remain true to the truths and traditions of the Church from Peter through Pope Pius XII still observe the Church's Tradtional Liturgical Year. We are pleased that this publication has been able to bring the entire liturgical calendar with the Propers of each and every day of the year since so few still possess the daily missals once so prevalent prior to Vatican 2.
