The Altar of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass has served Roman Catholics for 2000 years as the steady ship on the turbulent seas of this fleeting life. If we faithfully serve Jesus Christ, present Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity on the altar, and remain in the state of Sanctifying Grace, we can be assured we will be safely anchored between the pillars of the Holy Eucharist and Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary; thereby meriting - through Our Lord - safe passage to everlasting life. The DailyCatholic is committed to defending the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church that the faithful may KNOW THE FAITH in order to KEEP THE FAITH and share such a precious gift with others through conversion, not compromise!

         Pope St. Adrian II decreed that "The first requirement of salvation is to keep the standard of the True Faith."

         Yet, for over fifty years now this first requirement has been abandoned in favor of placating man, not God. Anathema and the Great Apostasy have enveloped Modernist Rome and the world today just as Saint Paul foretold in The ramparts of Holy Mother Church have been ransacked and pummeled, the turrets turned in a worldly direction, the treasure of the great Deposit of the Faith greatly diminished; the liturgical legates seized and ransomed for finite goals as the Infinite is forgotten in a desert of deceit. Like the Holy City of Jerusalem a millennium ago, the infidels have captured her and hold her ransom under the sign of the new religion formed by a conciliar Church, which for over 40 years has slowly but steadily been deconstructing the truths and absolutes. We can see daily in the scandals and statements coming out of almost every diocese and even the Vatican itself that the conciliar Church of modern Rome has slowly but surely ebbed more and more toward the Protestantization of our beloved Church in liturgy and belief until a pan-Christian ecumenism will be complete and we will all be one in the one-world religion of the prince of darkness. The truth is that we have been wandering in the desert for half a century; failing in the surging seas of ambiguity with countless casualties of souls lost in the depths of sin and lukewarmness.

         It is time to muster the forces of right and goodness, to speak up for the rights that have been wronged. That is why The Daily Catholic exists and provides proof that all that was passed down and observed before Vatican II must be adhered to today in deference to the modernism of the new faith formed in the sixties when man replaced God with the destruction of true Catholicism beginning with the ransacking of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the Tridentine rite. To return to what Pope St. Pius V decreed infallibly in his Papal Bull Quo Primum must be said "in perpetuity" seems more and more difficult as more of the sheep are dumbed down and caught up in the innovations and novelties of the fruitless "Civilization of Love" and "New Springtime" of ecumenical syncretism - something previous reliable Pontiffs condemned. If what was taught and observed was right for nearly 2000 years and produced countless saints and the means to salvation, then it is still right and must be faithfully adhered to. To many this may seem an impossible dream, but consider Our Lord's affirming words "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible" (Matthew 19: 26). Let us follow the wisdom of Saint Augustine, "Pray as if everything depends on God, and work as if everything depends on us." The time has come to right the wrongs. The time has come for a holy crusade to recapture the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church founded by Jesus Christ and built on the Rock of the Petrine Primacy. St. Augustine also said, "Wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it, and right is right even if nobody is doing it."

         So how do we know we are right? Two reasons: First, because what so many Sovereign Pontiffs had condemned as anathema, the Vatican II popes have contradicted and become the apostates that holy saints warned against. Secondly, because prior to Vatican II, the four indelible marks of the Church were intact and in full effect: One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic.

        With so much dissension and veering from the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church the conciliar church formed at Vatican II cannot be 'One'.

        The barren fruits stemming from Vatican II along with the shocking scandals and lowering of the moral virtue bar give solid evidence the church of Vatican II cannot be 'Holy'.

        Because, except in the True Church of the Catacombs, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass has been abandoned in favor of a Protestant service that seeks to de-mystify the Mystery of Faith, thus eliminating the "universal language of the Church" - Latin and therefore the church of Vatican II cannot possibly be 'Catholic' or 'Universal'.

        Finally, because of the modernist, progressive agendas and the insidious infiltration of the satanic, Masonic and Communist operatives within the Church, the bishops have, by their refusal to uphold the Faith and place their flock as their top priority, abdicated their apostolic succession and made this well known with their assertion that it is not necessary to become Catholic anymore. Therefore, the church of Vatican II can never be 'Apostolic.'

         Pope St. Felix III stated clearly what we must do: "Not to oppose error is to approve it; and not to defend truth is to suppress it; and indeed to neglect to confound evil men, when we can do it, is no less a sin than to encourage them." With that charge, are we to stand idly by when we see what has happened to our beloved Church? Saint John Fisher said that "He who goes about to take the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass from the Church plots no less a calamity than if he tried to snatch the sun from the universe."

         Yes, these are frightening times but we can take heart from the "Apostle of Tradition" Saint Athanasius who, in the time of the Arian heresy which pales in comparison to the heresies abounding today, stated, "They can occupy our churches, but they are outside the true Faith. You remain outside the places of worship, but the Faith dwells within you. Let us consider: what is more important, the place or the Faith? The true Faith, obviously. Who has lost and who has won in this struggle - the one who keeps the premises or the one who keeps the Faith? Even if Catholics who remain faithful to the Traditions are reduced to a handful, they are the ones who are the true Church of Jesus Christ."

         Pope St. Adrian II decreed that "The first requirement of salvation is to keep the standard of the True Faith." We plan to heed his holy wisdom.

         The Two Pillars serve as guiding beacons to steer all safely over the seas of the confusion that swirls around all today. We use this imagery from the vision given to Saint John Bosco and the pertinent messages he received specifically for our times.

         The mission of The DailyCatholic is to provide content in all phases of Catholic living so readers can KNOW THE FAITH in order to KEEP THE FAITH. The DailyCatholic is in full accordance with the Infallible and perennial Living Magisterium of the Church and obedient to the Primacy from Saint Peter through Pope Pius XII. This publication is dedicated to the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts. You can be assured what you read in these pages is solid and trustworthy and in full accord with the Doctrines, Dogmas and Traditions of the One True Faith taught for 20 centuries. We reject Vatican II for it formed a separate church, apart from the true Vine which has been proven by the bad fruits just as Christ affirmed in Matthew 7: 15-20. We thank you for your continued prayers and support in our on-going apostolate of reaching out to souls for Christ and His Mystical Bride - Holy Mother Church - in responding to His call in Saint Mark 16: 15:

        "Go ye into the whole world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth, and is baptized, shall be saved; but he that believeth not, shall be condemned."

         Everything flows from the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, depicted in a Heavenly glow of adoring angels above the altar. On the altar is the Tabernacle - the Holy of Holies that holds the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar - the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, possible only by the ultimate expiatory Sacrifice of the Son of man shedding every drop of His Precious Blood on the wood of the holy Cross so that we might gain graces assisting at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass through His merits. Besides the crucifix above the tabernacle on every holy altar, there is always on or near the altar the perpetual vigil light along with six candles, the Missale Romanum or Sacramentary, and the three Mass cards to assure the priest changes nothing for the Mass is unchangeable. The Holy Eucharist is a Sacrament established by Christ and cannot be altered. That is why we have returned to the Traditional look for our logo. On the altar is the felt green covering that protects the white linens on the altar when Mass is not being said.

         Flanking the altar are the Two Pillars envisioned by Saint John Bosco of which this The DailyCatholic has always used as a theme. The Pillars, of course, represent on the Gospel side of the altar the Holy Eucharist confected in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and to the right of the Epistle side the Pillar for devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Both Pillars stand above the raging waters and the only way to be anchored to them is to be aboard the ship in the center - the Altar of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass which represents the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church Christ founded.

         The "DAILY CATHOLIC" lettering represent the steps to the altar - a boarding pass so to speak for safe passage on the rough seas of secularism, heresies, and other vices commandeered by the prince of darkness. The light above the altar radiating from Heaven guides the way.

         Thus, anchored to the true Barque of Peter , we invite you to come aboard the DailyCatholic - the on-line flagship publication of SANCTUS - and cruise with us daily as we discover new horizons with up-to-the-minute news via twitter, views, columns, features, devotions, reflections and articles in endeavoring to help fulfill this vision.
