    TODAY'S PROPER OF THE HOLY MASS:

    Today is the Double Feast of Saint Cyril of Alexandria, Bishop and Doctor of the Church
    with a commemoration of Saint Apollonia, Virgin and Martyr
    White vestments
    Mass is the Missa "In medio Ecclesiae"


    for the Proper of the Mass in conjunction with the Ordinary of the Mass

    Tomorrow is the Double Feast of Saint Scholastica, Virgin and Religious Foundress
    White vestments
    Mass is the Missa "Dilexisti justitiam"


    WHY ONE CANNOT IN GOOD FAITH ATTEND THE NOVUS ORDO.
    REASON #40.     Because the New Mass has eliminated such things as: genuflections (only three remain), purification of the priest's fingers in the chalice, preservation from all profane contact of priest's fingers after Consecration, sacred altar stone and relics, three altar clothes (reduced to one), all of which "only serve to emphasize how outrageously faith in the dogma of the Real Presence is implicitly repudiated."
      The quote is from Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani and Cardinal Antonio Bacci to Paul VI on September 25, 1969 after he had issued the "abomination of desolation" on April 3, 1969. What the Cardinals wrote is inThe Ottaviani Intervention While the Pope didn't listen for Bugnini had his ear and heart, Father James Wathen watched, studied and listened and then warned of all this in his irrefutable masterpiece over 30 years ago The Great Sacrilege proving the immediate devastations that had occurred in just the few years of the New Order. Imagine then nearly 33 years later! Tragic! This is the fortieth of 62 reasons submitted by the Priests of Campos on Easter Sunday 1982 and endorsed by the late great Bishop Antonio de Castro Mayer. Each day we will publish one of the 62 until they're all complete
    Conversely in the True Holy Mass of All Ages:

    GRACES RECEIVED FROM ATTENDING THE TRUE MASS.
    GRACE #40.
        By this sacrifice thou does honor God as He alone is worthy to be honored.
      This is the fortieth of at least 77 Graces derived from participation at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass - the Mass of All Ages - the Latin Mass of the Roman Rite which was decreed to be said "in perpetuity" by Pope Saint Pius V in codifying the infallible decrees of the dogmatic Council of Trent. These graces are taken from Father Martin von Cochem's Explanation of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with an imprimatur by New York's Archbishop Michael Augustin on June 24, 1818 during the Pontificate of Pope Pius VII
    TODAY'S HIGHLIGHTS

  • Catharine Lamb continues her series on the Canon of the Mass, today focusing on the seven Martyrs specially venerated in Rome and forever invoked in the Canon of the Mass in the Commemorantes before the Consecration in her column We will never forget!
  • The eminent Dr. Peter Chojnowski provides a book review on a book offered by IHS Press "Flee to the Fields" - a collection of ten essays on the Catholic land movement to preserve the Faith in the face of secularism with a special preface by none other than Hilaire Belloc pictured above. Flee to the Fields
  • We present today the liberal mind-set of the secular press as they continue to be amazed at the groundswell for the film while continuing to do all they can to denigrate Mel Gibson and his Faith. Oh, it is clever, but Gary Morella adds his comments along with Catholic Citizens of Illinois to a feature article that appeared in yesterday's Chicago Tribune as the Countdown continues. 16 days to go!
    Pray for John Paul II that he will awake from the devastating 40-year slumber and return Holy Mother Church to its rightful place as the true Mystical Body of Christ and consecrate Russia to Mary's Immaculate Heart. Read our editorial The Judas Kiss in last Wednesday's issue.
    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!

    Today:
    Shears and Tears of a Lamb
    Catharine Lamb resumes her feature on the Canon of the Mass and those who are honored. Today she features the holy martyred saints who immediately follow the martyred Popes in the Communicantes before the Consecration. Catharine provides some background on these seven men, four of whom were holy brothers in blood who gave their very blood because they believed in the Blood of Christ. Today so many want to apologize for their actions. Yet the Church in her wisdom set in stone that these seven men who are specially venerated in Rome, would forever be remembered in the Sacred Canon of the Mass. Catharine assures in her column We will never forget!
    Books you can count on!
    We are delighted to resurrect our long dormant series on BOOKS YOU CAN COUNT ON with the excellent rationale on why rural life was so prized and adhered to Catholic Social Order in the 'Catholic Land Movement.' This was a necessary counter to the urban, industrial movement that imprisoned so many in a secular, Protestant milieu of the urban life. The esteemed Dr. Peter Chojnowski provides a brief review of a book first released in 1931 which contained ten essays warning all of this erosion of the Faith and urging Catholics to embrace the 'Catholic Land Movement' in order to preserve the family unit in every manner of the sensus Catholicus. The book Flee to the Fields is considered the Catholic manifesto for this, endorsed by none other than that great cradle Catholic literary master Hilaire Belloc in the original preface of the book now made available for all again at IHS Press. In full harmony with Belloc, author of The Great Heresies, were not only the Catholic hierarchy of all of Great Britain, but his noble friend G. K. Chesterton as we present a book review on Flee to the Fields

      Yesterday:
      Gabriel's Clarion
      With the fever building for the much-anticipated film 'The Passion of The Christ', few are aware of another movie in the making that is the antithesis of Mel Gibson's masterpiece. Yet, while Hollywood shudders and shuns helping a decent man, they are lining up at the trough of filth to churn out a movie that is full of lies. Yes, when the Truth is staring them in the face, they turn away and embrace the fleeting pleasure that will disintegrate into nothingness. Gabriel pointed out the best and the worst in his brief essay A Tale of Two Movies
      "Qui legit, intelligat"
      In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Septuagesima Sunday, he prepared us for this time of Septuagesima leading up to Ash Wednesday. We are officially in the time of preparation for fasting and penance liturgically and literally. The need to turn to the Cross of Christ in prayer and sacrifice is made more urgent in what we see in the world and modern church just in the past few weeks. We must shun worldly values and hold true to the True Faith which Our Lord and His Saints have assured, handing down traditional devotions and guidelines to navigate us through the torrential typhoons threatening us today. Father showed us ways of Surviving Sodom and Gomorrah

        Saturday:
        Quid Dicit Scriptura
        With the maelstrom of unfounded anti-Semitism charges being flung by the Zionists the closer we draw to the opening of Mel Gibson's 'The Passion of The Christ', Jacob Michael provided failsafe scriptural arguments that affirm not only is it futile for the Jews to wait for the Messiah, but also to try to re-establish the Old Jerusalem; for Christ destroyed the Old Jerusalem and established the New Jerusalem as His Church. Jacob presented the evidence in his Scriptural exegesis on the fulfillment of the Promise. How did the apostles and the first Christians view the restoration of David's Kingdom? See Jacob's fifth installment The Gospel in Action
        Mass Confusion
        Father Lawrence Smith documented the the two countenances of a man many neo-Catholics think is a conservative cardinal, but in truth he is no friend of Traditional Catholicism. The perception of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger working to restore reverence towards a true sensus Catholicus is exposed as false in the prefect's own words as Father pointed out so succinctly from words the head of the CDF said way back when and as recently as this week. He is in every way a liberal, a progressivist who indeed is hallucinating as his words indicate. Father laid it all out in his treatise A Tale of Two Truths.

        Friday:
        Exspectans exspectavimus Ecclesia Dei
        If modern Rome is so concerned about 'dialoging' with all schismatic groups, then why are they not serious about healing the rift within their own ranks? What are they afraid of in engaging those who are actually Catholic theologians in discussing the doctrines? That is the crux of the problem which the Bishop Fellay addressed in his penetrating, firm and respectful documented Letter to the Cardinals: From Ecumenism to Silent Apostasy
        HOT ISSUES
        As a commentary on the very issue His Excellency raised above, editor Michael Cain weighed in on how the progressive puppets try to defend the errors by changing the subject. Gary Morella offers his insights on what's been lost. The very points Bishop Fellay brings up are the exact reason so many Catholics are in a total state of confusion and compromise. Cain emphasized the need to stay on the offense and keep the Modernists in a defensive mode in the editorial Viva la Résistance!

        Thursday:
        Chronicle of Catholic Tradition
        We returned to the turning point in the embryonic stage of the early Church: the conversion of Paul in which through God's Mercy a terrible sinner was turned into one of the greatest saints. This should give us encouragement in these terrible times where Modernism, "the synthesis of all heresies" - as Pope St. Pius X asserted, is running amok. Part five: Shocked and Saved!
        THE FATIMA FILE
        As a follow-up to the backpedaling by authorities at Fatima and Rome, John Vennari, editor of Catholic Family News provides reliable and documented proof that the ecumaniacal agenda is behind all the spin despite the ambiguous rhetoric that tries to hide what's really going on for, as John points out so well, "in their attempts to deny, they confirm. Shrine Rector Confirms New Ecumenical Orientation at Fatima

        Wednesday:
        Shears and Tears of a Lamb
        Catharine Lamb was righteously indignant at the gall of a man who calls himself an Episcopalian minister telling his flock of lost sheep that they must choose heresy over schism. Sure sounds like the whole 'civilization of love' unity of community spiel doesn't it? The only difference here is at least the American Anglican is honest enough to call this apostasy what it really is: heresy. Wouldn't it be wonderful if the newChurch would at least identify itself for what it is: PROTESTANT! Catharine fires off a column that should fire you up as well for indeed it is all Heresy in High Gear!
        FOCUS
        Father Lawrence Smith focuses on the insanity of an article that appeared last month in The New York Times on the measures the madmen of mammon will go to for profit. Father points out in exposing the madness how inevitable it is that the Wall Street Spin and spinsters are going up in smoke, or make that down because Our Lord's warning in Mark 8: 36, "For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" has been totally lost on the agnostic anal authors who worship at the capitalism-at-any-price altar. Father shows the futility of trying to justify a means when there is no end in Leaping into the Hand-basket Bound for Hell

        Tuesday:
        Catholic PewPOINT
        Editor Michael Cain emphasized that for far too long John Kerry has waged war on the innocent. Now many are touting him as a war hero for his feats in Viet Nam. No way! Dig into the bunkers of his background and you'll find an entirely different chap. The facts speak for themselves and the bishops will soon reach a crossroads where they will have no choice but to take a stand against Kerry for his 100% pro-abort, pro-sodomite stand and the fact he is an enemy of Christ and His Church. If the bishops don't stand up to Kerry, then like Kerry they stand convicted because they did not stand by their convictions! John Kerry is no hero! He's a coward, a deserter and guilty as charged!
