Fingerprints of Anathema?|
Editor Michael Cain, acting as locum tenens examiner, administers the Galatians Anathermometer Theological Exam (GATE) to Chicago's Archbishop Cardinal Francis E. George, OMI in giving no quarter if, in the prelates' own words, they have convicted themselves of Anathema per the Apostle Paul's infallible statements in Galatians 1: 8-10. That confirmation is the gage for the GATE and today His Eminence from the windy city is on the hot seat, not only for his waffling and razzle-dazzle in shirking the responsibilities of the shepherds, but in totally ignoring Canon Law while looking for other answers to please man, not God. His comments were made on a secular television show,and he is grilled for that which goes hand in hand with his totally lukewarm handling of the abusers in his see and his cavalier attitude toward not protecting the flock from the dangers of heresy, sodomy and pagan practices. By his failure to uphold Canon Law has he not abdicated his position of authority? You be the judge in
Giving the GATE to Cardinal Francis E. George, OMI!
A Chronicle of Catholic Tradition
The fifteenth chapter of our series on the history of Holy Mother the Church and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass we focus on another of the distinguished Doctors of the Church Saint Ambrose. This giant of a saint was the Might of Milan in both his genuine love for his flock and protecting them by publicly standing up for the God-given Authority of the Church against the civil authority of Rome, as well as his grooming of one student - St. Augustine - who would be the cornerstone for rescuing sanity and sanctity in the midst of the insanity of declining morals and runaway heresy. Augustine was able to know the Faith thoroughly because of the love and dedication of St. Ambrose who, despite all the turmoil he faced, did not back down in loving and teaching the faithful the Truths and Traditions, which would bear much fruit for centuries to come through the influence and holiness of Saint Ambrose in The Ambrosian Influence
Gabriel Garnica donned his producer's hat in satirizing one of the most popular, shallow shows on television today - "American Idol." But Gabriel had a method to his madness as he equated the futility of the fame of being chosen the American Idol to the fruitlessness of striving for things that are not of God, yet identifying them as such. Gabriel set up his show in the same format sans singing and talent. And to judge the dumbed-down contestants, Gabriel chose three of the icons of cafeteria catholicism today - John Kerry, Richard McBrien and Bridget Mary Meehan. He proposed just what kind of guidelines these three specially selected stooges would ask in aping their progressive bent. Though Gabriel had his tongue firmly planted in his cheek, the sad part is that there probably would be too many contestants answering exactly as the stooges expect to hear. Such is the zoo in American churches today. What ever happened to truth? Gabriel gave us a hint in
Christ or chaos
In a follow-up to our editorial Tuesday on the grand old game, Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey offered a much more thorough compendium of how the game parallels problems in the Church and the long Catholic connection to America's pastime. The difference was Catholics in the old days did not replace their faith with baseball, only as an aside - granted a fervent hobby - but nevertheless, not the primary be-all and end-all. Tom delved much further back in time to show how problems arose when baseball broke with traditions, just as did the Church soon after. He chronicled the events and parallels that is a masterpiece of comparison and a fact that the simplicity of the game and the simplicity and reverence of the Faith have been lost in today's ever-expanding quest for more innovations. Tom detailed his own experiences and how not only they priced him out of his seats, but the crass and immoral promotions and advertising sent him fleeing forever from the game as he documented in his column Out of the Old Ball Game two years ago. Few are as well versed in the game as Tom and few can express the true Catholic perspective as Tom as he wrote, "One of the fruits of a Catholicized America will be the restoration of stability and sanity and decency in every part of cultural life, including professional sports, which would be returned to its rightful place as a diversion offered for legitimate recreation and enjoyment, not as a reflection of all that is wrong in a world where Christ does not reign as King and where His Most Blessed Mother does not reign as our loving Queen." It is something we can all pray and work for as we presented his masterpiece appearing in the recent issue of the Seattle Catholic and titled simply:Baseball and Tradition
Editor Michael Cain stepped up to the plate in asking why the Church can't take a lesson from baseball. He shows how the grand old game's experiment with novelty and the sterile sent fans away in droves. Sound familiar? Like the millions of Catholics who have fled the Church thanks to all the confusion and synthetic liturgy of Vatican II? Baseball learned from their mistake by tearing down the cavernous and meaningless stadia in erecting smaller, more traditional shrines to the national pasttime. Why can't the Church realize the grave and devastating error of their ways and return to the Truths and Traditions that sustained the faithful for nearly 2000 years? He gave examples from Sacred Scripture, most notably the Book of Machabees to expose their true agenda and called on the younger orthodox priests to realize it is mass suicide to follow the apostate bishops and what they have reaped. There are no fruits. Just bitter, barren vineyard where once there was a verdant valley of souls. Now it is parched. Learn from baseball. Get rid of the new sterile pagan temples erected and build churches that reflect what Catholicism is all about. Throw out the fake astroturf and plant the seeds of faith so the grass will grow again and thrive as it once did. If Catholics are outraged enough and insist they build these traditional cathedrals, then others will come for it is only there they will find the
True Field of Dreams!.
Deprogramming Diabolic Disorientation
Those who were supporting Bishop Thomas O'Brien in his recent trial in which the judge caved need to read Michael Lacey's latest expose in which he blew the lid off the Mauve Mafia and their tactics in Phoenix in which O'Brien was one of the very thugs - even worse than those depicted on 'The Sopranos' - for souls have been lost due to his intimidation and scandal in covering up sodomite priests. O'Brien may have eluded jail here on earth, but his ultimate prison promises to be much more trying than chauffeured rides to and from his punishment - public service to the poor and sick. Lacey pointed out that his hypocrisy is what is the sickest as he documented the terrible cancer that has festered in the desert for so many years. Lacey's article from the Phoenix New Times is only a confirmation of what Stephen Brady has been exposing in his Roman Catholic Faithful ministry and Atila Sinke Guimar„es has documented in his latest book on 'Vatican II, Homosexuality and Pedophilia'. We provided Lacey's article with his permission. This needs to be known for O'Brien is a disgrace and should be defrocked. But then so should most of the bishops today. The only problem - and it's a big problem: if only we had a pope brave enough, holy enough to come forward and do what is necessary for the sake of millions of souls in the Catholic Church! Lacey, a returning sheep to the fold despite the scandal, identified the principals and their lack of principles in his article
The Divine Sociopath.
Shears and Tears of a Lamb
Catharine Lamb asked if Catholics who value the Sacred Traditions of the Faith as practiced and preached from St. Peter through Pope Pius XII and the ultimate Treasure of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass truly realize the treasure they have. She asked because too many seem to take it for granted that these dedicated priests and ministries which labor so for souls don't need financial help or that someone else will foot the bill and that's not their problem. All they want is the sacraments, but it's not a free ride. Are we going to store up our treasure, hoarding it, or are we willing to share it and give it as abundantly as possible to those who are truly at work in the Lord's vineyard? You can be assured all monies given to Traditional Catholic causes will not go for covering up the sins of sodomy or for desecrating churches or promoting the agendas of abortion or any liberal causes. No, funds given to Traditional causes are always used for the greater honor and glory of God and to allow those laborers for God to continue. In her column Catharine asked
Where is Your Treasure?.
Gabriel Garnica asked all Catholics to carefully consider who John Kerry truly is. There has been much about his flipflopping and some might dismiss that as political banter from the opposition - the Republican Party, but the best measure of a man is to see what and how he believes and in this we can see the man falls far, far short of someone any one but satan should emulate. His disregard for Catholic Truth should be a red-flag to every bishop and Catholic, and yet all these useless shepherds can do is say, "it's not my problem!" Well they need to realize it will be when they stand before their Lord and Creator, the Just Judge. While we pray for Kerry's true conversion, we pray God will deliver Catholics from the likes of John Kerry as Gabriel exposed more of this demon of the Democrats in his column
Lord, save John Kerry; and save us from John Kerry!.
"Qui legit, intelligat"
In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Low Sunday, he tied in the unbelieving attitude of Thomas with so many today who seemingly knowing the truth, knowing what Our Lord has taught, contradict Divine Revelation and Tradition. In Sunday's Gospel, Christ blessed those who have not seen, and yet believe for they have Faith. It is this Faith which has been undermined over the decades, largely in part by secular, Masonic, Zionist and Communist infiltration into the Church's hierarchy. Father also pointed out the main reason why there has been so much hatred aimed at Mel Gibson for his masterpiece film: Mel has exposed the Myth of the Holocaust by showing the True Holocaust in which the Immolated Lamb offered Himself to His Heavenly Father in atonement for our sins in propitiation for us that we might be granted eternal salvation through His merits. Truly He is, as Thomas acknowledged, "My Lord and my God." This is something the Jews refuse to accept, and John Paul II by his actions and silence to the anathema of the Pontifical Biblical Commission's statement that the Jews do not need to be converted for salvation, only fuels the fires of confusion. That, in effect, is another holocaust of immense proportions: the destruction of so many souls in the fires of perdition! There has never been nor will there ever be a greater Sacrifice, a greater Holocaust than the ultimate Sacrifice on Calvary and this is re-enacted in an unbloody manner daily on the holy altars where the Immemorial Mass of Atonement and Propitiation of Apostolic Tradition - the Traditional Latin Mass - is carried out as the Mystery of the Mass:
A Perfect and Acceptable Sacrifice
Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi
Kevin Tierney presented a comparison of the Traditional Latin Mass Proper and that of the New Order synthetic liturgy which, as he illustrated, fails to acknowledge the very fact that Christ did not show signs to those who did not believe in Him. He did not beg the unbeliever, but praised the believer for whom alone He granted favors such as raising Lazarus from the tomb or the Good Thief on the cross. Kevin also pointed out how the Novus Ordo relegates such mysteries as the Resurrection to a "spiritual feeling" rather than historical fact. It is in this inclusiveness with the unbeliever that it excludes believers who must believe in the infallible truths of Christ's One True Church outside of which there is no salvation as Kevin concluded with the Offertory and Communion Prayers providing more ambiguous liturgical 'time bombs' as Kathleen Willet Skredle spoke of Saturday which seek to destroy Catholic truth in favor of Protestant practices in the NOM. He detailed some of these ambiguous and very dangerous 'time bombs' in Increasing Our Awareness of the Differences for Low Sunday
Kathleen Willet Redle presented the fourth installment of her multi-part comprehensive expose on the liturgical revolution which we have dubbed "The Golden Calf Experiment." The liturgical revolution includes mocking the sacred Traditions and inculturating pagan practices into the liturgy, all part of the dangerous experimentation, novelty and innovation spawned from the reforms of Vatican II. In truth the entire bent is towards taking away attention from the One True God - Three Persons in the Blessed Trinity - Who alone must be worshipped. Kathleen exposed the terrorists who would totally paganize and scandalize the sheep. She showed how this has so insidiously crept into the rationale of those who have planted these liturgical time bombs. Unless you want to get caught in the underdraft of a tremendous disastrous explosion, you had best run for cover to the nearest Traditional Latin underground church. It might not hurt, other than praying, to let the bishops know Catholics have had enough! She provided outlets where you can opine to the only ones who can defuse the bombs of scandal and apostasy in Part Four Forget Reverence! Get in step with the Golden Calf!
Hope on the Horizon
George Neumayr, managing editor of The American Spectator weighed in with an interesting article on a meeting between John Kerry and the Archbishop of Washington D.C. Cardinal Theodore McCarrick who is as qualified to be a true shepherd as this editor is to manage the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team. As we have been espousing for over four years, these bishops have no intention of adhering to Church doctrine for they are in bed with the pro-abort Democratic Party and Neumayr's article confirmed that including Democratic plans to twist the truths into an "acceptable Catholic Scorecard" which equates Church Doctrine on the Death Penalty with Abortion and Sodomy. One problem, the Church has always soundly condemned the latter two, while it is a Vatican II and John Paul II's own wishes to do away with capital punishment. It IS NOT CHURCH DOCTRINE! Indeed up to Pope Pius XII, the Church has always openly supported just Capital Punishment and still does doctrinely. It is more of the deceit and cover-up that intrinsically ties the bishops to mammon. Neumayr wrote, "Afraid of losing the Catholic vote, pro-abortion Catholic Democrats [ed. note: an oxymoron if there ever was one] are aligning themselves with the 'U.S. Catholic hierarchy,' highlighting their support for the liberal policies of the bishops so as to cancel out the growing perception that they are heretics no self-respecting Catholic could vote for. Kerry hopes that McCarrick will serve as the stooge in this scheme to confuse Catholic voters." Well put by Neumayr for indeed McCarrick is the perfect stooge put in place by a bad pope who still hasn't realized the extreme damage to souls he has wrought by his sad, scandalous appointments. Neumayr expounded on the problem and the scheme in his column
McCarrick to Kerry: Carry On
You've got to hand it to God for creating such a useful tool as a hand. Gabriel Garnica focused on those creative and functional digits at the end of our wrists and handily provided a meditation on how our hands fit into Christ's Hands, and what the intent of our hands might be in handing back to God all that He has handed to us. Gabriel pointed out that it is not only the eyes that are the window of the soul but the hands as well. How do we measure up? That is the challenge Garnica handed to us in sharing handy examples of exemplifying Our Lord, or those close to Him. Gabriel asked
Which Hands Are Yours?.
"Quid dicit Scriptura?"
Jacob Michael resumed his series on "Mother's Medicine: Mary as Mediatrix" with his third installment on the Mother of God's specific mission as Mediatrix of all graces and the affirmation of the beloved disciple John in Apocalypse 12 as "the woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars." Jacob clearly showed through both the Old and New Testament, the intrinsic link between Mother and Son in Redemption for Mary is indeed the woman giving birth to the Church through the Passion and Death of her Divine Son. Jacob matched Old Testament passages that confirm this and eliminate all other possibilities as he documented the first six verses of chapter twelve of the Apocalypse of St. John the Apostle in his third installment of this series in citing what the Scriptures saith that indeed Mary is The Mediatrix in Apocalypse 12
We continued Kathleen Willet Redle's multi-part comprehensive expose on the liturgical revolution which we have dubbed "The Golden Calf Experiment." The liturgical revolution includes mocking the sacred Traditions and inculturating pagan practices into the liturgy, all part of the dangerous experimentation, novelty and innovation spawned from the reforms of Vatican II. In truth the entire bent is towards taking away attention from the One True God - Three Persons in the Blessed Trinity - Who alone must be worshipped. Thursday she presented part three in which she delved into the pagan practice of dancing, often suggestive, that has slithered into the sanctuary in the guise of "liturgical dance." Kathleen exposed it for what it is and the hierarchs and lay people responsible for unloosing the serpents of serendipity in Part Three: Dancing up a storm
A Chronicle of Catholic Tradition
The fourteenth chapter of our series on the history of Holy Mother the Church and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass we began a more in-depth study of the terrible cancer ravaging the Church which began with a simple priest who thought he knew more than God. That man Arius of Alexandria spawned a heresy that was so devastating that it would take Holy Mother Church centuries to rid the Mystical Body of it for it had so metastasized her members that it might have been permanent had it not been for the noble, brave doctors of the Church which God raised up to combat this deadly virus. If there is any heresy we can equate with the terrible Arian heresy it would be the heresy of Modernism and Ecumenism which basically denies Christ's charge for His holy Church. What is needed today is a man of the caliber of the "Apostle of Tradition" St. Athanasius who was put through trial and tribulation but triumphed because he held fast to Tradition in preserving the Sacred Deposit of the Faith while the Popes of his time were basically helpless to fend off the mult-fanged venemous viper of heresy, schism and apostasy as we explained in the fourteenth
installment The Arian Threat vs. the Apostle of Tradition
Baseball's back and Gabriel Garnica waxed nostalgic for the days of innocence both on the fields and in our churches. He literally took 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 lamented in his column
Remember when they played by the Book?.
Finally, after 40 years Father Malachi Martin has been vindicated!
Editor Michael Cain shared 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 expounded in his Hot Issues commentary A Reputation Recouped! The 'Fly on the Wall' is Freed at Last!
With the Holy Season behind us, we 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
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
"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
The GOOD: The "Tower of Trent" Trophies!|
Other than the coveted Walter L. Matt Memorial Lecture, there are no official recognitions that we know of. That is why we have created the "Tower of Trent" Trophy to present on the web to worthy recipients who have fought for the cause of preserving and upholding the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church. Deadline for nominations has been extended until the end of the Second Week of Easter, April 24th at midnight. The actual announcement of winners will be on May 13, the 87th Anniversary of Our Lady's First Apparition at Fatima and the Feast of that great Doctor of carrying out the Decrees of Trent, Saint Robert Bellarmine. You can send your recommendations to Tower of Trent Trophy Tower of TRENT Trophy
