    The Passion of The Christ Rises Above All! Alleluia!
    Mel reclaims top spot at the box office as well as passing two more all-time films to vault into eighth all-time

       What a Lent! It began on February 25th, Ash Wednesday and like a Tsunami 'The Passion of The Christ' picked up passion nationwide, especially in the heartland of America before the ashes had faded. Sold-out theaters were amazed at the scope of patrons waiting so patiently in line for the next showing. Even more so were the press in trying to stir up some controversy from the theater-goers as to its anti-Semitism claim and when that failed, as to its violent nature. Everywhere they turned, people were wiping tears away and offering a conviction of the soul and a personal accountability for helping to torture and, indeed in effect kill Christ. Thus the media turned back to those who had foretold the vast pogroms that would ensue from this "hate-filled movie." They were the only ones who would keep their liberal fires smoldering for the rest of America was moved to the edge just as Mel Gibson had intended. But even Mel himself is staggered by the response worldwide where it is, if it has not already, close to passing the one half billion mark at the box office. Talk about hundred-fold returns!!!

       In less than 50 days this film, which no one in Hollywood would touch with a ten-foot dolly cam, has surged into the top ten all-time movies. Last week it broke into the top ten by bumping Tom Hanks's popular 'Forrest Gump' from the number ten slot and just this weekend 'The Passion' surpassed two more films - the very popular animated 'Finding Nemo' and the second of the trilogies of 'Lord of the Rings - The Two Towers.' Now it has in its sights - which it should topple by next week - Jurassic Park' which will go the way of the dinosaur as this greatest masterpiece on the Son of God ever put on film becomes endless in its message. Mel's magnum opus is less than thirty million behind the third trilogy 'Lord of the Rings - Return of the King.' Two great fully Catholic-oriented films in the top ten!

       What also makes this all the more remarkable is that 245 theater owners, thinking 'The Passion' had run its course and greedy to fill their seats, opted to drop Mel's film for the likes of 'The Whole Ten Yards' and 'Ella Enchanted' and 'The Girl Next Door.' It serves them right that they're crying in their ticket stubs since collectively the three movies above didn't bring in as much as 'The Passion' did. As of late Sunday afternoon the total take for Mel's movie in the United States stands at $354.9 million.*

       One interesting fact is that a recent Gallup poll said that 34% that had not seen it yet would definitely see it which guarantees legs for Mel's film. Ad to this that 39% will either see it again or definitely rent or buy the DVD or video and many believe that eventually it will topple Titanic, currently the number one of all-time. Hey, it's possible. Who in their right mind ever thought we'd be talking about such lofty returns at the beginning of the year? "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible" (Matthew 19: 26).

       What is truly more amazing than the monetary numbers is the impact the film has had on lives. No one can imagine the souls that have been changed. Already there are accounts of over 70,000 testimonies of how the film changed their lives. We know about the murderer and the thief who turned themselves in because their consciences, not fear of being caught, caught up to them after they say Mel's magnum opus. The other interesting point is that church attendance since the movie's release is up 10% and what is even more amazing is that Mel has everyone talking about Jesus in a positive manner and going back to the Sacred Scriptures to fill in the blanks, if you will, for there is a thirst for "the Truth, the Way, and the Life."

       If you have stayed away because you couldn't handle the violence or were put off by negative reviews, check your Faith. Ask yourself why. Christ didn't like it either but He was willing to undergo the humiliation and unbearable pain for you. It's Holy Week; offer it up and help carry His cross by experiencing this miracle that is moving souls, so much so that two men have turned themselves into law authorities for their crimes, one was for murder, the other for theft. Why? Because Mel's movie tinged their consciences. True modern Dismas men in our midst. How many more have changed and amended their lives? God only knows. Go see 'The Passion' again and then let us know what you thought of the film and how it affected you. Share with our readers by writing to My take on 'The Passion'

    TODAY'S HIGHLIGHTS

  • Gabriel Garnica steps up to the plate with a nostalgic look at the good ol' days. Baseball will do that to you as will the smell of the incense and the scarce sound of melodious Gregorian Chant. We had it all and botched a perfect double play because we decided to go outside the lines and make foul fair and fair foul. The results have uprooted respect, right and religion as he points out in his column Remember when they played by the Book?
  • Michael Cain says it's about time the Jesuits come clean about the blackballing they did on Malachi Martin, the former Jesuit who they so maligned. With the announcement that the former Vicar General after 40 years of silence has finally admitted what Martin always swore by that he was a priest in good standing, it's about time more came clean and not wait for Fr. Gruner and other noble Traditional priests to die before giving them their due. Cain explains in his Hot Issues commentary A Reputation Recouped! The 'Fly on the Wall' is freed at Last!

       We are extending voting for worthy recipients of the "Tower of Trent" Trophies through the week, but don't put it off. Get your votes in now. See Below

    PAPAL PROOF OF WHAT THE CHURCH TRULY TEACHES

      For those who truly want to delve deeper into what the Faith teaches and what past Sovereign Pontiffs have decreed, we recommend for your vital reading to better KNOW THE FAITH in order to KEEP THE FAITH, pertinent Papal decrees which put to the lie what is being promulgated today by the Vatican II church. We strongly encourage you to read these to understand how today the modern church is in Apostasy when compared to what had always been taught by Holy Mother Church and enforced and warned as most grievous by previous Pontiffs as you'll see in CREDO & CULTURE


    The entire thrill-packed suspense novel on the fight to preserve the True Faith and the world against the nefarious Legion of the Basilisk is now online at WHITE SMOKE, BLACK FIRE!

    Few scholars have the thorough acumen to trace and document the why, what, when, where, how and who as Atila has done in his marvelous Eli, Eli, Lamma Sabacthani? collection which, book by book, exposes the the massive, murky mess that has been created as a result of the Vatican II agenda. His latest book above Vatican II, Homosexuality and Pedophilia is key to understanding the purpose and rationale of those who would twist the Sacred Deposit of the Faith to accommodate sin and who must be exposed and eradicated for the welfare of Holy Mother Church. It is a must read in order to alert all to how deep the rot goes and why the scandal in America was really only the tip of the iceberg. We encourage you also to read Gary Morella's review of Vatican II, Homosexuality and Pedophilia.

    Gabriel's Clarion
    Baseball's back and Gabriel Garnica waxes nostalgic for the days of innocence both on the fields and in our churches. He literally takes the verse from Take me out to the ballgame to show us that if one could go back they wouldn't care if they ever came back to the present for they had it all in those days and didn't realize it! If only we had known then what we know now we wouldn't have sacrificed our values on the ashen altars of materialism and convenience, but we would have hit away at the evil that slithered in through the knothole of ignorance and laziness. As a result of our inaction and blind obedience to 'progress,' respect for the rules has been replaced by a new team invading the Field of Faith and of the grand old game. Blame it on expansion, innovation and novelty. The players are Pride, Covetousness, Lust, Anger, Gluttony, Envy and Sloth with Mortal and Venial as the battery and Lukewarm cooling off in the bullpen! Ah for the good old days of Tinkers-to-Evers-to-Chance or In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti. Say hey? Say halo! No more! The pine of the Louisville Slugger and the wood of the cross have given way to the non-serviam pitchfork of cacophony and rebellion; modernism has replaced the resin bag of reason, respect and right. Gabriel laments in his column Remember when they played by the Book?.

    Finally, after 40 years Father Malachi Martin has been vindicated! Editor Michael Cain shares this announcement made public by William H. Kennedy which verifies the proof of what we have long contended: that Malachi Martin was a priest in good standing all his life and did receive proper dispensation from the Jesuits. This fact has finally been verified by the very man who contributed to the terrible treatment and malignment of this priest and famous novelist who many dubbed 'the fly on the wall' for what he knew and foretold. Father Malachi Martin has finally been vindicated by the very man who was the Vicar General of the Society of Jesus in 1965 - Fr. Vincent O'Keefe, S.J. when it was rumored and never denied by the Jesuits that Martin had been defrocked and had caused great scandal over an affair he had in Rome. the late Malachi Martin, the 78 year-old former Jesuit who is best known for his best-selling novels on the Church and the Vatican. Through all his novels there is a fine line between fact and fiction and many claim his work is prophetic. A confidant of two Popes, he was a voracious reader and collector of information and is believed, when he received his dispensation from the Jesuit Order, to have been placed under special Pontifical protection according to Martin. This, many think, gave this staunch traditionalist the freedom to write what he did and reap the many years of research and actual Vatican dealings he experienced in translating into novel thrillers of intrigue and espionage in the genre of John Le Carre and John Grisham that, as each year passes, we see is truer than fiction. Cain expounds in his Hot Issues commentary A Reputation Recouped! The 'Fly on the Wall' is Freed at Last!

      Yesterday:
      Mass Confusion
      With the Holy Season behind us, we now resumed our regular programming, if you will, in bringing you a new writer to The Daily Catholic Kathleen Willet Redle who has written a multi-part comprehensive expose on the liturgical revolution which she titled "The Golden Calf Dancers" when previously published in Canada. But now she has enhanced and updated the piece so we have dubbed it "The Golden Calf Experiment." The main reason is that dancing is merely a component of the experiment and that the entire bent is towards taking away attention from the One True God - Three Persons in the Blessed Trinity - Who alone must be worshipped. Many false idols today pose a threat and Kathleen showed how the seeds of revolution are sown. She pointed out various omens given from Heaven and yet, like the people of Moses' time who turned their backs on God and in desperation worshipped the golden calf, so also today history repeats itself despite the fact that those who foment revolution are always brought down by their own making for mammon always turns on its own when it has no more need of them just as Christ asserts in Luke 16: 9. Kathleen picked up where she left off on March 24th with Part Two The Resolution to Revolution
      Hope on the Horizon
      Pat Buchanan, a most orthodox Catholic exposed the shallowness that makes up the fiber of John Kerry and his faith. Buchanan pointed out Kerry's slip in referring to John XXIII as Pius XXIII, but what is really needed for the Church today - is a man of the caliber of Pope Pius XII who would forever abandon the anathema that is Vatican II. That would be a Pius XIII! A holy GOOD Pope, how refreshing, who would clear out the charlatans. We can only pray. In the meantime, it is about time Catholics recognize the charade and lies Kerry is spreading from his insistence that he can still receive communion while in the state of mortal sin and a do-nothing archbishop who says one thing but when push comes to shove, puts his ostrich miter into the sand. This is exactly what happened this weekend when, despite Boston Archbishop Sean O'Malley's assurances that Kerry should not approach the communion line, Kerry did. What makes it even worse is O'Malley's spineless response. Instead of a showdown, because O'Malley knew what was going to happen since the cantankerous Kerry, who could care less about the truth whether it's in religion or politics, made it quite clear where he would be Easter Sunday, O'Malley blinked. Another example of the terrible leadership in the church today as Buchanan nailed the problem in his WorldNetDaily column Fr. Kerry & Pius XXIII

        Monday:
        Gabriel's Clarion
        Gabriel Garnica had been gnawing at the bit to refute the poisonous pestle poured out on the public last Monday at the beginning of Holy Week. Because of that sacred time, he bided his time before replying. Easter is over and Gabriel figured it was time to let ABC have it with both barrels over the bitter poison of progressivist pabulum passed off as having importance, even factual. What rubbish! exclaimed Gabriel which is echoed by every loyal Catholic. How dare they. But then what do you expect from ABC whose anti-Catholic track record is legend!? Enough is enough. Maybe the ratings weren't great in their blatant attempt to twist the Gospels and the whole intent and content of Christianity. Amidst three hours of drivel regurgitated over and over, never - ever - was the Holy Ghost mentioned as the One Who inspired St. Paul just as Jesus promised. No that very key ingredient of Christianity was noticeably and purposely missing, all part of The Sin and The Spin.
        Hope on the Horizon
        Brent Bozell echoed Gabriel's lament on the atrocious piece by ABC by affirming, that "...the media's Rolodex of religion experts was dominated by academics who are hostile to religious orthodoxy." Bozell, President of Media Research Center, also pointed to the blackballing of truth that has occurred in the media as the torch of truth is steamrolled by the blackball of conjecture and fabrication. He identified the true hate speech as coming from the liberal media, especially in the needless uproar over 'The Passion of The Christ', "We have suicide bombers blowing up buses in Israel and very real anti-Semitism on the march in Europe, but the TV networks located the worldwide danger zone for Jews as the space between Mel Gibson's ears." Brent provided statistics showing the increase of religious news, but it isn't really religious only new thought to try to justify the New Order. He explained in his Townhall column from just this past week The sad paradox of religion news
        Echoes of True Catholicism
        Dr. Marian Therese Horvat exposed the feeble attempt by the bishops to govern themselves for indeed it is the foxes guarding the henhouses as she pointed out in debunking the John Jay College figures which, in effect, were paid by the bishops to make them look as good as possible in light of the terrible scandal. What is even worse, the bishops are trying to whitewash it all as something in the past, as if miraculously the venomous viper has been cast out and its head crushed. She emphasized that this is impossible considering the 'fruits' of their efforts and their obvious intention to continue to allow homosexuals to pursue the priesthood. She syllogized how it all boils down to the main culprit - the culture of Vatican II which, in effect, did away with the strict moral order of the Church in embracing the ways of the world. Indeed the satanic asp is not only firmly entrenched, it has spawned many more poisonous reptilian heresies under many rocks despite the bishops' insistence that "no stone has been left unturned in getting to the bottom of this." In truth, as Marian so adroitly proved No Stone Left Unturned Except One: Vatican II

        EASTER SUNDAY:
        "Qui legit, intelligat"
        In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the most Solemn of Solemnities of Easter Sunday, he reaffirmed what the Scriptures confirm and what Holy Mother Church has always taught as he provided various testimonies from Divine Revelation and true learned men of the Church to the fact we must die with Christ in our flesh, so to speak, by shedding the vices of the old man and putting on the garment of grace of the new man in order to be worthy to rise with Him in our resurrection when, purified of all sin, we can take our place in the everlasting light. The way can only be illuminated by Lumen Christi - the Light of Christ which is our beacon on the path to Heaven. Father explained in his Easter sermon in quoting from St.Paul's words in Romans 6: 5, "In the likeness of His Resurrection"
        Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi
        Kevin Tierney presented his Easter installment on the Disciplines of the Season. Having passed from Lent and Passiontide we now focus on the beauty and significance, the power and glory of the Resurrection. Yet, as Kevin pointed out, the Novus Ordo still doesn't get it even though they have so stalwartly preached the Resurrected Christ much more than the Crucified Lord as evident from the crosses in so many churches today that bear the Resurrected One rather than the Immolated One at Calvary. In this series simply called "Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi." He took the reader through the Propers of the Traditional Latin Mass for the glorious Double of the First Class Feast of the Resurrection of the Lord and compared key points where once again omissions glaringly reveal themselves which once again points out how the New Order Rite expresses a Protestant mentality in so many ways. Kevin identified the differences in The Disciplines of the Season: EASTER SUNDAY
        From Eden to the Empty Tomb
        Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey completed his special series on Reflections of Salvation History with the Glorious Resurrection. In this special six-part series on "A Reflection of Salvation History," first introduced to our readers last year and brought to you to enhance your contemplation for this holy season, Tom took us from Eden to the empty tomb. He pointed out that, despite the hardships, the sacrifices, the insults, the scourging, the stripping, the nailing and hanging on the wood of the Cross, Christ proved for all time that it was worth it. Is it worth it to us? By our actions and fidelity to His teachings passed down through His Holy Church and carried out in the Sacraments, especially Baptism, Penance and the Holy Eucharist, we illustrate if we think so. If we are His loyal lambs, Christ the Lamb of God has guaranteed He will be loyal to us at our Particular Judgment. Nothing else matters for salvation is at stake. Alleluia. From Eden to the Empty Tomb

        Holy Saturday:
        Gabriel's Clarion
        Gabriel Garnica reminded all of the great dangers of throwing opinions around for, like darts, they can stick, they can hurt and they can do great harm. He went beyond the excuse that "everyone has an opinion" by deciphering between fact and fiction, between opinion and truth. Often times the weapon of opinions are loaded in the arsenel of satan and few there are who are aware how deadly their words can be. Gabriel cautioned us all to keep the good intentions we have been working on during Lent for increasing virtuous actions by being ever on our guard between Godly vs. UnGodly Opinions.
        From Eden to the Empty Tomb
        Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey continued with his special series for this holiest and most meaningful of seasons. Leading up to the Easter Vigil for Holy Saturday all remains stripped bear for Christ is nowhere to be found. This liturgical symbolism in the Easter Triduum of Our Lord in the tomb is, unfortunately, too prevalent today in society where so many seek to dismiss Christ from their thoughts in order to continue their own sinful agendas. They are lost in the darkness and it is only through the Lumen Christi - the Light of Christ - that they will find their way. By His Death and Resurrection the new Adam has won for us - through His merits and the co-redemptrix fiat of the new Eve His sinless Blessed Mother - the reality of eternal life in recovering what our first parents had lost. Tom reflected in From Eden to the Empty Tomb - Part Five HOLY SATURDAY

        Good Friday:
        "Qui legit, intelligat"
        In Father Louis Campbell's reflections for Good Friday, he pointed out the signs of God's Love for us from the signs His only-begotten Son left behind, a sign so many still refuse to recognize and that is the Shroud of Turin which science cannot refute, but Father easily refuted the anathemas that were spewed on ABC's progressive program Jesus and Paul this past Monday which was a blatant attempt to grab some quick ratings by piggybacking on the popularity of 'The Passion of The Christ'. ABC's blatant anti-Christian, indeed anti-Catholic offering - typical for them - and presented by the 'Lord of Liberals' Peter Jennings were akin to the swine into which the demons fled. We know what that herd did, rushing pell mell over the precipice. Christ says why throw pearls to the swine and indeed, why put up with such heretical drivel the secular networks try to pass off as credible when we have Mel Gibson's masterpiece which is a pearl, a priceless pearl that reinforces exactly what the facts of the Shroud of Turin bear out in confirming its authenticity. For Good Friday Father shared a special reflection as a bonus meditation for this most solemn and saddest day of the year, yet one so full of hope as Father explained in Signs of His Love
        Quid Dicit Scriptura?
        Jacob Michael completed his five-part reflections on the Sorrowful Mysteries in helping us all better understand the scope of this week in his short series "Five Days of Sorrow." Jacob asked us to stand with Christ's Blessed Mother and His beloved disciple and the few others who braved the scourning of others to stand uncompromisingly with Him to the bitter end. The pain He suffered was bitter as Jacob described through medical and historical facts that make it all the more remarkable He could survive for three hours on the Tree of Salvation...and all for us! Yet we can't spend one hour with Him? Perhaps we need to get our perspectives in order so that He will recognize us when we knock and say "Lord?" Few there are who want to hear,"I do not recognize you, begone." Thanks to His crucifixion, He opened that door, but we must be willing to go through it on His terms, His Divine Will as Jacob delivered a most inspiring meditation for Good Friday on The Crucifixion of Our Lord
        From Eden to the Empty Tomb
        In keeping with the season we continued a special retro series first presented by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey last year for The Daily Catholic readers on A Reflection on Salvation History. It stretches from Adam and Eve to the glory of the Paschal Lamb on Easter Sunday. We also encourage you to catch up on his most recent articles at his own site at Christ or chaos. Today he reflects on the everlasting impact of the wood - the wood of the manger, the feeding trough of life became the wood of the Cross - the feeding trough of everlasting life. Tom asked if we will stand with Him, walk with Him, suffer the scorn and scourgings, be nailed with Him to the Cross. Or will we cave to the crowd and join them in rejecting the One True God? How we respond could determine if we truly understand the glory of the Resurrection which awaits. Tom reflected in From Eden to the Empty Tomb Part Four

        Maundy Thursday:
        "Qui legit, intelligat"
        In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Maundy Thursday's Mass, he emphasized on the institution of the priesthood by the Divine Priest the importance of the priesthood, the vital necessity for priests to be as pure and worthy of the call of Melchizedech that, one ordained through the most noble of Sacraments in the carrying out of Christ's charge in Mark 16: 15-16, could fulfill and increase the number of saved souls through his exemplary sacerdotal behavior and his vow to preserve the Sacred Traditions and Doctrines of Christ's Church and, most vital, the administration of the most Sublime Sacrament in being the alter Christus where he is the only instrument able to carry out the necessary Transubstantiation to offer to the Father the True Presence of Jesus in the unbloody propitiatory Sacrifice of the Mass. Yes, there is nothing more sublime or necessary for Catholics. The world has never understood the sacerdotal nature of the priesthood, but in its ignorance it has greatly misrepresented this most sacred vocation in which the essence is to work counterproductive to worldly goals. The very fact that the priesthood has been so viciously attacked by satan through the unprecedented assaulting of the human vulnerabilities of so many priests and their bishops who have become lax and caused grave scandals makes the road for good, dedicated priests all the more men who can assimilate their suffering with Christ on the road to Calvary. Why are priests so precious and priceless to the faithful and the preservation of the True Faith? Contrary to the relaxed and, often times anathematical norms of Vatican II, only the priests can offer, on behalf of Christ, the cup of salvation containing His Most Precious Body and Blood. Father explained in his sermon "I will take up the cup of salvation"
        Gabriel's Clarion
        Gabriel Garnica called all Catholics to come to the defense of the Saving Victim - O Salutaris Hostia for the Bread of Angels Panis Angelicus is under heavy assault in every way as the New Order seeks to totally Protestanize the infrangible belief in the Real Presence in so many ways. Gabriel cited two saints who hungered for the Heavenly Manna and had a fire in their heart and soul to do all they could to preserve the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Christ. On this day when we celebrate the institution of this most wonderful Sacrament to which we bend our knee in deep adoring Tantum ergo Sacramentum we can take time just to say thank you to Jesus for this most wonderful gift He gave us for time immemorial - His immemorial Mass in which we are privileged to re-enact His propitiatory Sacrifice on the altar in an unbloody manner. What joy should fill every Catholic heart and soul. We should never want to leave His side if we truly believe He is present in the holy Tabernacle. Gabriel explained further in his column The Real Presence and the New Order .
        Quid Dicit Scriptura?
        Jacob Michael continued to apply Divine Revelation in his reflections on the Sorrowful Mysteries this week to help us all better understand the scope of this week in his short series "Five Days of Sorrow." Jacob focused on the trek up Calvary - the Via Dolorosa - "Way of Sorrows" and how much more difficult it really was for Our Lord than anyone can imagine considering His thoroughly battered condition and the weight and balance of the beam. Jacob pointed out that Christ did not carry His cross alone, but allowed Simon the Cyrenian to help. So also He invited us to share our cross with Him and to share the crosses of others for if we can share the pain, we will also share in the great gain of grace. This means aiding His Mystical Body which surely needs help today as She struggles under the burden of modernism and other heresies. Jacob delivered a most inspiring meditation for Maundy Thursday on The Carrying of the Cross
        From Eden to the Empty Tomb
        In keeping with the season we continued a special retro series first presented by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey last year for The Daily Catholic readers on A Reflection on Salvation History. It stretches from Adam and Eve to the glory of the Paschal Lamb on Easter Sunday. We also encouraged you to catch up on his most recent articles at his own site at Christ or chaos. For the 1,971st anniversary of the Institution of the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar, Tom reflected on how "Holy Thursday is the time to enter deep into the mystery of God's love." Tom emphasized the need to wait and watch with Christ, truly present when the bread and wine are validly confected into the Body and Blood of Christ, Soul and Divinity. Just as His Own apostles failed the test to stand with Him, so also do we time and time again no matter how good our intentions. Dr. Droleskey invited us to resolve to stick it out this time, stay with Him through the blood and guts, so to speak, so that we can truly share in the triumph of the Cross at the Dawn of Pachaltide. Tom reflected in From Eden to the Empty Tomb Part Three

        Wednesday:
        Quid Dicit Scriptura?
        Jacob Michael continued to apply Divine Revelation in his reflections on the Sorrowful Mysteries this week to help us all better understand the scope of this week in his short series "Five Days of Sorrow." Jacob hopes to give each reader a better grasp of their own life and put it all in perspective. Indeed the force with which the soldiers plunged the cruel thorn-plated helmet into Christ's sacred skull would doom any man to immediate, indescribable pain and horror. Yet Christ did not give up, He did not say "Enough!" He merely remained silent as his torturers mocked and derided Him further. Talk about harassment and persecution. Think about what He went through for us the next time we feel put upon. Jacob shared some astounding medical and historical facts that make the crowning of thorns all the more horrible in scope as he provided a most inspiring meditation for Wednesday of Holy Week on The Crowning of Thorns
        Shears and Tears of a Lamb
        Catharine Lamb helped us prepare for the beginning of the Easter Triduum by giving us a better perspective of the symbolism and meaning of the rituals of Maundy Thursday and why it is called such, for Maundy means Mandatum which translates to 'Commandment' and this Christ gave us with the institution of the Blessed Sacrament gifting those worthy of His graces His Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity. Catharine also gave us some insight into the Office of Tenebrae and where it originated and its beautiful meaning and customs kept alive from the monks keeping Christ company overnight to Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the side chapel for the faithful to keep watch. Catharine takes us through Maundy Thursday's magnificent liturgy practiced for so many centuries by Holy Mother Church. She explained in - Maundy Thursday: A New Commandment I Give Unto You

        Tuesday:
        Christ or chaos
        Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey weighed in with a most powerful and necessary essay on the state of consciences today. Too many have accepted the compromise and in so doing have only empowered satan further. He addressed the Bishops of the United States, dressing them down for their lukewarmness and pulled no punches when it comes to the Democratic candidate for president John F. Kerry who is trying to ride on the coattails of another JFK whose own heresy began America on this trek into moral depravity and a loss of its soul. Tom pointed out the magnificence and absolute principles outlined by Pope Leo XIII in Sapientiae Christianae 114 years ago which holds truer today for politicians and the hierarchy than ever before. Tom also reminded that it is not the political parties who have the answers. Neither the pro-abort Dems or the hypocritical GOP are the answer. The only answer is to strive with every ounce of energy and breath of life to preserve life - everlasting life - by seeking to re-establish the Social Kingship of Christ no matter what it takes. Tom laid it all out in his hard-hitting column Craven Cowards and Judases!.
        Quid Dicit Scriptura?
        Jacob Michael continued to apply Divine Revelation in his reflections on the Sorrowful Mysteries this week to help us all better understand the scope of this week in his short series "Five Days of Sorrow." Jacob hopes to give each reader a better grasp of their own life and put it all in perspective. Indeed Christ's terrible scourging at the Pillar, so brilliantly and vividly portrayed by Mel Gibson in his masterpiece film, is really only a hint of what Our Lord suffered. And what He suffered were the lashes of our sins - from the most inconspicuous venial sin to the most deliberate and vile mortal sin. They are all offensive to God and need to be atoned for since God operates in "Trinity Time" not linear time. Jacob reminded us to reflect on this scourging and realize every time we sin or have sinned it is another deep bruise in the precious Body of Christ as he shared a most inspiring meditation for Tuesday of Holy Week on The Scourging at the Pillar

        Monday:
        Quid Dicit Scriptura?
        Jacob Michael used Divine Revelation to help us all better understand the scope of this week, and the unimaginable Love God has for us that He would send His only-begotten Son to die for us so that we might live. What Jacob hopes to accomplish in his series, which are basically the Sorrowful Mysteries in "Five Days of Sorrow," is to give us all a better grasp of our own lives and put it all in perspective for every drop of His Precious Blood from those first tears in Gethsemani to the last on Golgatha had a definite, specific purpose in atonement for our sins. Jacob confirms that indeed Christ did shed tears of blood in the Garden and what those tears meant as well as the necessary comfort of the angel as he shared a most inspiring meditation for Monday of Holy Week on The Agony in the Garden
        Gabriel's Clarion
        Gabriel Garnica reminded us of the simple virtuous traits lived by the Saint of Lourdes, the holy Bernadette whose sanctity was confirmed by God by leaving mankind with a sign of her holiness and adherence to Sacred Tradition for her body remains incorrupt today, nearly 125 years after her death in Nevers, France. Gabriel shared the fact that though Bernadette may not have been a learned Doctor of the Church in the mold of Thomas or Teresa of Avila, she was every way their equal in virtue and, like another French saint, found the simple way the best. Gabriel equated the seven traits of simplicity Bernadette lived to each day of this holiest of weeks in the year when we can apply the practicality of her simple advice which will do wonders in Heaven if we but have a sincere, simple heart full of love for Christ. Gabriel enumerated on her traits in his column Bernadette Soubirous - Doctor of Simplicity.

        SUNDAY:
        "Qui legit, intelligat"
        In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Palm Sunday the Hebrew children - Pueri Hebraeorum - who spread palmfronds before Our Lord, hailing Him as the Lord - "Hosanna in the highest" are today's 'pueri hebraeorum' who reject Him. This includes those who advance the heresies of Vatican II and, by doing so, no longer express such love for the Lord. Indeed, as we have seen from the pogroms issued against 'The Passion of The Christ', they openly flaunt that "Vatican II changed that 'medieval thinking'." Father reminds us how damaging to souls that anathema is for all are in agreement that the Jews are not solely responsible for Christ's death. The Church has never blamed the Jews exclusively. They did not kill Christ, but they REJECTED Him. It's basically the same, and they are killing souls today by rejecting the infallible dogma of salvation as Father pointed out in his sermon for truly the Hosannas of truth have turned to Hisses of heresy thanks to the venomous Vatican II agenda that is responsible for sinners remaining in sin and tolerating it. Souls are lost and the Faith is in great jeopardy if we do not resist such anathema by practicing true charity as Father explained in his sermon "When as yet we were sinners."
        Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi
        Kevin Tierney presented his seventh installment on the Disciplines of the Season, having passed from Lent into Passiontide with today's focus on Palm Sunday in this series simply called "Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi." He took the reader through the Propers of the Traditional Latin Mass for the Beautiful ceremony of the Blessing of the Palms, Procession and Holy Mass and compared it to the abbreviated form adopted in the Novus Ordo whereby once again he pointed out the omissions that on the surface may not seem like much of a difference, but in content and intent are huge in one, the Traditional Rite of the Immemorial Mass being totally Catholic, the New Order Rite expressing a Protestant mentality in so many ways. Kevin identified the differences in The Disciplines of Passiontide: Palm Sunday
        From Eden to the Empty Tomb
        In keeping with the season we began a retro series first presented by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey last year for The Daily Catholic readers on A Reflection on Salvation History. It stretches from Adam and Eve to the glory of the Paschal Lamb on Easter Sunday. We also encourage you to catch up on his most recent articles at his own site at Christ or chaos. He continued with his special series for Passiontide and Holy Week. For Palm Sunday he showed how we must discard the palms of political correctness and secular ideals for the true fronds of love that come from our heart in which we are willing to not only offer our Hosannas, but take up Christ's Cross for His entire Mystical Body as well in order to keep our focus on the straight and narrow - the sure path that leads up through Calvary. For without the Cross, there can be no Glory! Tom outlined the "Love Trail" in From Eden to the Empty Tomb Part Two

        Saturday:
        Catholic PewPOINT
        As we head into Holy Week editor Michael Cain reminded all of our mandatory duty as members of the Church Militant, a task most have dropped and abandoned. Too many have forgotten the Poor Souls in Purgatory because the modern church has not emphasized it for that would offend our Protestant brethren in the big ecumaniac circus that the New Order has become. Cain asked us that as we set our clocks ahead an hour to think of the Church Suffering and to switch to "Trinity Time" in order to make use of whatever time we have left on this earth. Cain presented a gut-check for every Catholic, especially Traditional Catholics, when he asked Are we prepared to die with and for Him?.
        From Eden to the Empty Tomb
        In keeping with the season we began a retro series first presented by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey last year for The Daily Catholic readers on A Reflection on Salvation History. It stretches from Adam and Eve to the glory of the Paschal Lamb on Easter Sunday. We also encourage you to catch up on his most recent articles at his own site at Christ or chaos. In his first part of his redact series, Tom traced the history of salvation from the fall of our first parents and the subsequent trials of God's people in the Old Testament in waiting for the Messiah; and when He arrived, few there were who recognized the God-man even in the face of fulfillment of all prophecy because of man's stubborn pride and resistance to God's will. So also today, especially today in 2004 as Tom explained in From Eden to the Empty Tomb Part One

        Friday:
        Gabriel's Clarion
        Gabriel Garnica is righteously upset that in this most holiest and somber of seasons the obscene, blasphemous, and sacrilegious film Life of Brian is being re-released into theaters to compete with Mel Gibson's masterpiece 'The Passion of The Christ' in a most mocking form. The irreverence which the anti-Catholic group Monty Python showed 25 years ago has not subsided as they have approved this action which should not only outrage Catholics, but, as Gabriel points out, should have Jews incensed. He wonders if the same critics of Mel will come forward and castigate this latest abomination or, as he suspects, why go after someone who ideologically and politically is on the same page. It all adds up to further scourging of Our Lord during the week we focus solely on Him. Gabriel expands on this in his column How Long, O Lord?!.
        Shears and Tears of a Lamb
        Catharine Lamb continues her feature on the Canon of the Mass and those who are honored, continuing with the list of saints invoked in the Nobis quoque peccatoribus after the Consecration. These saints have been abandoned by the New Order for the very words "To us also, Thy sinful servants," which are the only audible words spoken in the Canon of the Mass per the rubrics and celebret set in stone by Trent and Pope Saint Pius V. Thanks to the Vatican II popes the powerful intercession of these saints have been eliminated just as the idea of being a sinner has been downplayed so that all will feel better about themselves. Catharine has a shock for those who have bought into this 'all is love' hype: they're in for a shock when they stand before their Maker at their Particular Judgment. She shares insight into four more saints Ignatio, Alexandro, Marcellino, et Petro who all gave their lives for their Faith rather than betraying Our Lord and the Church He founded. A far cry from what is promoted today as she explains in - Abandoned Saints to sustain Thy Sinful Servants - Part Three
        A> Hope on the Horizon
        Terence Jeffrey in his Townhall column points out the pending confrontation that is bound to break out soon and that is John Kerry's absolute acceptance of sin and his direct opposition to God's Laws and the Church's. The Massachusetts senator's feeble excuse of separation of Church and State doesn't hold a lick of water as Jeffrey points out that "if it violates the natural law, the bishops have a right and a duty to hold him accountable." While he really only touches the surface, it is interesting that he cites an event where the Baptist minister Dr. Martin Luther King relied on the wisdom of the holy Doctors of the Church - both St. Augustine and the Angelic Doctor St. Thomas Aquinas. Their contention: "Unjust laws are no laws at all!" Since abortion is unjust because it is murder and goes against the absolute Laws of God,it is no law. Though we wouldn't put as much, if any, hope as Jeffrey does in St. Louis Archbishop Raymond Burke, Terence seems to think he is the answer, but he has still been all talk. Only when a bishop officially excommunicates a pro-abort politican publicly will the rest sit up and take notice. Regardless, we provide Jeffrey's Townhall column Will the bishops confront Kerry?

        Thursday:
        Traditional Insights
        Mario Derksen continued his excellent series on "The Truth About Ecumenism" as he meticulously analyzed the final word of the Church on ecumenism. Surprise, surprise it is not Ut unum sint but rather Mortalium animos, the no nonsense Papal encyclical by Pope Pius XI who warned in 1928 against the very insanity that has run wild over the past several decades and grows worse by the year, by the month. Mario provided the proof that ecumenism is not just a grave error, but an anathema which, in effect, is apostasy pure and simple for it denies the ineffable truths of the One True Church, denies the primary dogma of Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus, and denies Christ's command in the Scriptures. Mario provided the second installment on An Analysis of the Encyclical Mortalium Animos and other true Catholic Teaching on Religious Unity with part two Allurements & Temptations
        A Chronicle of Catholic Tradition
        The thirteenth chapter of our series on the history of Holy Mother the Church and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass moved out of the age of persecution from the Romans and encountered a new persecution, one from within as the devastating Arian heresy raises its ugly head. This Medusa of madness would cause more souls to be lost than all the Christians of the first three centuries. Many say that with the end of the cruel reign of Diocletian and the rise of Constantine the Great as the new emperor who, through the Sign of the Cross, conquered, that the growth spurted with Christians free to worship publicly for the first time. With this freedom, abuse entered in as is usually the case and it would be left to the emperor and Pope St. Sylvester I to try to quell the heresy with the First Major Council at Nicaea in 325 as we covered the first half of the fourth century during the pontificates of seven Popes in the thirteenth installment In Hoc Signo Vinces

        Wednesday:
        Gabriel's Clarion
        Gabriel Garnica showed why everything is topsy-turvy today and why some want to strike God from the Pledge, from the schools, even from the churches, and definitely from the courts. They no longer recognize the absolute mandate of the Ten Commandments handed down from Almighty God to Moses on Mt. Sinai for all time. Considering the state of things today, is it any wonder the Ten Suggestions have replaced the Ten Commandments? No wonder they wanted to take the Decalogue monument out of Judge Roy Moore's rotunda. Do you think Moses might be mighty mad still? It's a sure thing that God's not happy because so many today have by and large turned their collective backs on the True God and His Laws and embraced the Golden Calf of The New Order both secularly and ecclesiastically. Gabriel has titled his column: Moses Meets The New Order.
        Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi
        Kevin Tierney presented his sixth installment on the Disciplines of Lent in this series simply called "Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi." He took the reader through the Propers of the Traditional Latin Mass for this past Passion Sunday and compared it to what is offered in the proper for the Fifth Sunday in Lent Novus Ordo Missae. He pinpointed the passages that are optional and showed why those particular passages which the priest is at freedom to omit are key to the entire meaning and message of the Scripture reading. If one wonders why so many do not believe as they once did reading these particular points will help open eyes to the vast difference between the structured, purposeful Traditional rite and the novelty-ridden option-oriented New Order rite. Kevin identified the wide chasm in The Disciplines of Lent: Passion Sunday

        Tuesday:
        Catholic PewPOINT
        Editor Michael Cain dovetailed from Gabriel Garnica's column on 'Reality' TV from Monday's issue, in asking how some of these other shows get televised. He wondered how many are getting sucked in by promos on television which always leave one wanting, never truly entertaining and even worse, so insidiously injecting anti-Catholicism into the content. While many times it is subliminal, other times it is quite obvious, blatantly such as in last Friday night's episode of Fox's Wonderfalls. As bad as that was, Cain came back for more punishment by sitting through CBS 'Jesus' Sunday night. He shared the sad side effects of the Andy Rooney-network's latest effort to offset the good Mel Gibson has been able to accomplish through his masterpiece film 'The Passion'. As for the CBS fare, Cain gave all a hint of why they should stick exclusively to broadcasting NCAA basketball games and the Masters Golf Tournament. It would be better if all the networks scrubbed their programming because it's hard to decipher one network from another. They all look alike and they're all carrying the same damaging type of trash that is harmful to souls as he pointed out in his editorial March Madness Gone Berserk!.
        Pro Life Prescriptions
        Dr. Frank Joseph returned to these pages with a stirring, impassioned plea to Archbishop Sean O'Malley to get off his hierach duff and do something before it is too late. He was, of course, referring to John Kerry and his shameful, scandalous flaunting of his sinful ways and receiving the sacraments as if nothing is wrong. Frank reminded the Archbishop of his duty before God and closed with a poignant and most pertinent piece by radio legend Paul Harvey titled "If I were the devil" in which it is quite obvious the bishops have done nothing to stop the evil one, even to curtail the devil somewhat. Now push has come to shove and it's time for O'Malley to stand and be counted or lose out forever if Kerry is elected. This has nothing to do with politics, but everything to do with saving souls as Frank emphasized in his column An Open Plea to Archbishop Sean O'Malley

        Monday:
        Gabriel's Clarion
        Gabriel Garnica wondered what if all the shallow programming, especially the inane so-called reality television shows that seem to litter the major networks over the past two years, instead strove to provide something of value using the same concept but put towards good in a Christ-like manner. He realized he was just dreaming for the world would never buy it as programmers and viewers seemingly sink lower and lower in the base mentality of pushing the envelope beyond any kind of moral standards. Gabriel reminded us that there is definitely a reality at play here, one that can effect the very outcome of eternal life. With those kind of stakes, it is best to do a reality check as he pointed out in his column The Reality of 'Reality Entertainment'.
        Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi
        Kevin Tierney presented his fifth installment on the Disciplines of Lent in this series simply called "Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi." He took the reader through the Propers of the Traditional Latin Mass for Laetare Sunday and compared it to what is offered in the Novus Ordo Missae. For his analysis of Laetare Sunday we would like to rejoice, but there is so much lacking in the synthetic rite that on laments instead. It is a fact that the man-made rite of Vatican II is sorely lacking as Kevin explained why: the New Order has left it so ambiguous and avoids those things which are absolutely necessary not only for striving toward sanctity, but for salvation. The whole purpose of the Novus Ordo liturgy is to negate the negative theology that we are totally dependent on God and are unworthy unless blessed by Him and in His good graces by having sanctifying grace on our souls. Kevin broke it down in The Disciplines of Lent: Laetare Sunday

        SUNDAY:
        "Qui legit, intelligat"
        In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Passion Sunday, he reminded us all of the infallible truths handed down in Sacred Scripture as to the New Covenant which he likened to a marriage covenant between man and God. The Hebrews of the Old Covenant had the same covenant until they wandered for the final time and, by their own choosing, rejected God, despite constant warnings and curses to bring them back to their senses. Their blessings ran out. God divorced forever the Old Covenant and took to Himself the Bride of the New Covenant through His only-begotten Son to live, literally happily ever after. However, as Father pointed out, that is only possible if we are faithful to Him. If we stray, then, like the Jews, we too will be deserving of the seven-fold curses, the woes that befell the Hebrew people and are befalling His unfaithful children of the Bridegroom today. What is most pertinent and shameful is that the present bride, seeking to please man rather than her eternal Spouse, has gone behind the back of the Divine Groom and conspired with the exiled "divorcee" to tell the latter that an annulment is no longer necessary for the marriage to the Bridegroom is as good for the old bride as well as the new bride. This would be spiritual polygamy and there are dire consequences for such infidelity as Father illustrated through Scripture in his sermon Blessings and Woes
        Books you can count on!
        Gary L. Morella provided a most positive review of an outstanding book by Atila Sinke Guimar„es just released by Tradition In Action. It is considered a special edition of his vaunted and eye-opening collection Eli, Eli, Lamma Sabacthani which already includes the landmark volumes The Murky Waters of Vatican II, Animus Delendi I, and Animus Delendi II. His latest, Vatican II, Homosexuality & Pedophilia is a book that needs to be in the hands of every bishop in the world, including the Pope, as well as in the hands of every religious editor and investigative journalist so they'll understand what the Church truly teaches and not buy the modernist/tolerant-speak and psycho-babble that has so insidiously undermined Holy Mother Church. Gary L. Morella presented a succinct, compact review that hopefully should pique the interest of all in desiring to read and better understand why the Church has gotten itself into such a sordid situation and why she has done so little to extricate herself. The facts and evidence may shock you, but satan is so clever and has masqueraded himself and his agenda so insidiously. Gary pointed out Atila's work helps "connect the dots as to why Rome is impotent to right the Barque of Peter by sadly coming to the realization that the pro-sodomite mentality in the Church goes right up to the highest levels of the Vatican." Atila's book is a must read in order to alert all to how deep the rot goes and why the scandal in America was really only the tip of the iceberg. We encourage you to order, read and share with others his book: Vatican II, Homosexuality & Pedophilia
