Michael Cain, Editor, The Daily Catholic

    Michael Cain, editor, The Daily Catholic    Not only does Michael Cain have the experience and talents to oversee such an undertaking as The Daily Catholic, but the total commitment and passion as well. This is illustrated in the fact he has channeled all this expertise to a purpose that earns no money, only graces and souls. He currently serves in the unpaid triple duties of the Executive Director of SANCTUS as well as webmaster and editor of The Daily Catholic which, on November 1, 1997, supplanted the bi-weekly publication A Call To Peace, begun in 1990. Throughout that decade he and his wife traveled the country speaking, but slowly but surely realized something was still missing. That epiphany would not come until a pilgrimage to Lourdes in May 2000.

        Though because of health concerns, he had wanted to cut back on webmastering duties in hopes of delegating more responsibility to others so he could do more research and write, there was not a qualified candidate to carry on and thus, because of the need to inform souls as to what Authentic Roman Catholicism teaches, he has continued to serve as both webmaster and editor.

        His background encompasses forty years of editing, publishing and promotion. Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota on April 20, 1943, it was 1956 when Mike first met his life-long Spiritual Director Fr. Al Svobodny, OMI. Fr. Al was the Vocations Director for the Central Province of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, the Order which was assigned to Mike's home parish of Assumption in Richfield, Minnesota. A year later, through Fr. Al's persistence, Mike entered the minor seminary in Carthage, Missouri. Seven years later, after completing his temporary vows at the Order's novitiate in Alton, Illinois, Mike, with help from his Novice Master, discerned that God had another mission in life for him. He took collegiate studies at OLO, St. Thomas College and then the University of Minnesota with a major in journalism. In 1966 the Vietnam Conflict beckoned and he served in the Air Force as an Information Officer. After completing his necessary military duty, Mike returned to civilian life, settling down in San Diego, California, where he established his own creative agency - Can Do Concepts - after working for several others, including a leading national ad agency and several major league sports teams.

        While his business was very successful, including awards for his designs and campaigns, two things were missing. One was filled on January 18,1981 when he met his future bride Cyndi Adele Kreke at a Catholic social function in San Diego's Mission Valley. She became Cyndi Cain on May 10, 1981 when they were married on Mother's Day. Today they have two sons, Kevin Michael, 21, and Kellin Joseph, 19. Shortly after their marriage Cyndi miscarried twice. Despite these devastating setbacks, God chose to bless them with two sons who, in effect, are truly miracles. In the aftermath of Kellin's birth, it didn't look like Cyndi would pull through and, medically actually hemorrhaged to death on the operating table, but miraculously was brought back for her work for God was not yet finished. Unfortunately, from that time on she would not be able to have any more children because of the damaging effects to her reproductive organs. Yet both Mike and Cyndi accepted it as whatever God willed, not realizing at the time that they would eventually seek to comfort and instruct so many more children - the children of God - His lambs who have been so misfed and misled by the shepherds of today who are really wolves in shepherds' clothing who have, in effect, abdicated their Apostolic authority by their apostasy to the True Church.

        Why has the journey taken so long to unfold in taking the blinders off the Cains? Only God knows those reasons. But Mike's forty years as journalist and editor for varied publications, as well as high-profile promotional work for numerous professional sports franchises - including his design and production in record time of the promotional package in 1984 that landed San Diego its first Super Bowl in 1988 plus outstanding awards and kudos for the cruise ship industry in San Diego - all these paved the way for the transition from secular to working in God's vineyard for souls. He had tasted the top and found it unfulfilling. But with his "yes" to the Blessed Mother Mary for her Divine Son Jesus, the last few pieces of the puzzle in a longing to help people in the way God willed, not the world, was nearly completed.

        On the Feast of St. Michael the Archangel in 1990 they formed MIR-A-CALL Center and released the first issue of A CALL TO PEACE. That inaugural issue, an eight-page Xeroxed sheet was handed out at the Cain's local parish. By the time the costs of printing and mailing had made it unfeasible to continue in 1997, Mike had written, laid-out, designed, edited, published and printed over one million issues sent by snail-mail around the world and placed in parishes everywhere. Realizing the advantages of the net, Mike masterminded the transition from print to the web, learning a whole new medium on his own in order to keep up with the times for God's sake.

        The launch of The Daily Catholic on All Saints Day in 1997 made it the first daily publication anywhere in existence. Since that time The Daily Catholic has reached tens of millions in milliseconds daily without ever spending a dime on advertising or promotion. Call it the power of word of mouth for today The Daily Catholic is registering an average of over two million hits a month in nearly 120 countries worldwide. Through trial and error, Mike has persevered and recognizes why and how it has continued: by the Power of the Holy Ghost.

        Having been weaned on the Traditional Latin Mass, and seeing the devastating direction the New Order Mass had taken, Mike and Cyndi remained obedient to attending the Novus Ordo for ten years but after a tremendous spiritual awakening during a pilgrimage to Lourdes in 2000 and in light of the heretical actions coming from Rome themselves, and after realizing that what His Holiness Saint Pius V decreed in codifying the infallible, dogmatic decrees of the Council of Trent was still very much in effect and that no priest or parishioner needed permission, they realized that to continue on the path they had been pursuing by denying that the problems were not from Vatican II and that John Paul II was a good pope who was conservative - was hypocrisy for they realized just the opposite confirmed by Christ in Matthew 7: 15-20, for truly a bad tree cannot bear good fruit and a good tree cannot yield bad fruit. Since there have been nothing but bad fruits despite surface claims that there are fruits during his pontificate the truth is there have been no lasting good fruits. Truly, "By their fruits you shall know them.". Realizing that the canard pushed on Catholics that it was wrong to attend the Latin Mass was illegal for it goes against an infallible decree, the Cains came to their senses. Therefore, realizing it was the bishops and even the Pope himself who were being disobedient, the Cains realized finally that obedience to Christ and His Church necessitated that they forever abandon the synthetic rite of the Novus Ordo and return to the Latin Rite of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition - the most perfect and beautiful thing this side of Heaven.

       Thus,realizing they themselves had been so fooled just as Christ warned in Matthew 24: 24, they found it mandatory to close down the site for several months in order to study all the Church taught through the 21 Major Councils and significant, landmark Papal Decrees that, to their amazement, in effect has condemned the very actions being taken today by Modern Rome. In further studying Vatican II they also realized how it had been infiltrated by those out to destroy - animus delendi - the Church Christ founded. Aware of their duty to express the uncompromising truths of Holy Mother Church to their readers, the Cains realized it couldn't be both ways. It was either one or the other: Either stay with a sinking ship that had just begun sailing in the 60's or return to the True Barque of Peter and cast our anchor with the Tried and True Traditions of Holy Mother Church and all that was taught, upheld and preserved from Saint Peter through Pope Pius XII. The decision was a no-brainer. You always stick with the tried and true over novelty and innovation. When they resumed publishing they endeavored to share all they had learned placing it all on-line on their various pages, specifically in each daily issue and at Credo & Culture Section. Their logic: "Don't take our word for it, see for yourself" for there are many doubting Thomases out there!

        Since making that decision, the Cains realize more everyday it is the only decision any true Catholic can make and thus they have dedicated the rest of their lives through The Daily Catholic to convey these truths in order to save souls. The final action has been cleared this year with IRS approval to finally dissolve Mir-a-call Center which was the last tie to the Novus Ordo and reorganize under the parent organization of SANCTUS, the Latin word for "Holy" and an acronym for Save All Necessary Catholic Traditions in the United States. It is a battle to the bitter end and, no matter what satan throws at them, Mike and Cyndi are in it for the long haul for they trust in the Holy Ghost to guide them via the trusted compass of the Truths and Traditions of the infrangible Sacred Deposit of the Faith provided over a span of nearly 2000 years by the infallible perennial Magisterium of the Church.
