    TODAY'S PROPER OF THE HOLY MASS:

    Today is Ferial Day from the preceding Sunday
    SEXAGESIMA SUNDAY


    Violet vestments
    Mass is the Missa
    "Exsurge, quare obdormis"
    for the Proper of the Mass in conjunction with the
    Ordinary of the Mass

    Tomorrow is the Feast of Saint Simeon, Bishop and Martyr
    Red vestments
    Mass is the Missa
    "Sacerdotes Dei"


    In some places the Double Feast of Saint Bernadette Soubirous takes preference. That would be the Mass of Vultum tuum

    WHY ONE CANNOT IN GOOD FAITH ATTEND THE NOVUS ORDO.
    REASON #48.
        Because the New mass embodies numerous errors condemned by Pope St. Pius V at the Council of Trent (Mass totally in vernacular, words of Consecration spoken aloud, etc. See Condemnation of Jansenist Synod of Pistia), and errors condemned by Pope Pius XII (e.g., altar in form of table. See Mediator Dei).
      Again, the very things that were condemned and accursed as anathema by wise and holy Pontiffs, by Holy Mother the Church are today elevated and given veracity as being noble and true in the newChurch. This is a contradiction that cannot hold water to the wine of truth. How can a doctrine or dogma be changed? It cannot. How can a dogmatic, sacred Council which pronounced with the Popes overseeing it, infallible doctrines - such as the Council of Trent be trumped by a pastoral-only council that was hijacked by progressivists, Protestants and the perverted? It is impossible. Therefore, every Catholic has a moral obligation to abandon the new false religion and return to the True tenets and practices of the Church as practiced from St. Peter through Pope Pius XII. Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani and Cardinal Antonio Bacci back on September 25, 1969 could see this all coming and warned of this inThe Ottaviani Intervention While the Pope didn't listen for the confirmed 33rd Degree Mason Annibale Bugnini had his ear and heart, he and the church of Vatican II have indeed "incurred the wrath of God and the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul." Father James Wathen could see this so clearly over 30 years ago and warned of all this in his irrefutable masterpiece 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 forty-eighth 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 #48.
        By hearing Mass devoutly, thou canst give greater honor to the angels and the saints than by reciting many prayers.
      This is the forty-eighth 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

      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'S HIGHLIGHTS

  • Gabriel Garnica provides the appetizer for today's theme on the 'Passion of The Christ' as he asks whether we will be reluctant Simons or willing Veronicas when push comes to shove. Will we cower like Peter or even worse, betray Our Lord as Judas did, waving our pc torches of the New Order to single out an innocent man. Gabriel explains in his column today History Repeats Itself!
  • Editor Michael Cain elaborates on the same theme Gabriel treats, going into detail on the players then and today and how uncanny are the similarities - so similar that it must be a Godincidence that Mel Gibson's film is a sign that conversions could be just around the corner as Cain hopes and prays in his editorial The Passion and Conversion of Hearts!
  • We urge all to join us in the continuing Nine Day Novena of Rosaries begun yesterday for the conversion of hardened, cold and lukewarm hearts through Mel's film.

  • We are into single digits as the countdown heats up in earnest. Most saw the interview last night on ABC's Prime Time. We are interested on what you thought. Send your comments to Op/Ed Research

  • There is another issue that needs to be addressed which Phil Brennan of Newsmax.com has raised, and that is: Are the Bishops in cahoots with the dissident revisionists? From the spurious Newsweek piece against Mel last week, it would seem so. See 8 Days to Go!
    Is there a Mauve Mafia in Albany?
    Priest who made accusations against Bishop Hubbard found dead. Was it suicide or a hit?
        A priest whose name was linked with a letter accusing Bishop Howard Hubbard of homosexual activity was found dead in his Watervliet home this weekend. Watervliet police said the Rev. John Minkler was found on the kitchen floor of his home by his sister on Sunday afternoon. Police Chief Jerry Beston said there were no signs of trauma... See Priest found dead
    Court to hear 'Roe's' challenge to '73 ruling
       In a move hailed as a breakthrough by abortion opponents, a federal appeals court agreed to hear oral arguments in an attempt by the original plaintiff in Roe vs. Wade to overturn the landmark decision. Norma McCorvey "Jane Roe" in the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court case wants to reopen the case that struck down... See the WorldNetDaily.com story at Matters of Life and Death
    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

    Today:
    Gabriel's Clarion
    In two articles that touch on the same theme today, Gabriel Garnica leads off with the prologue on how the events two millenia ago are repeating themselves today as the release of 'The Passion of The Christ' is but a week away. Gabriel points out that "those who cry division divide, and those who cry inacurracy defraud. Those who cry sin are the greatest sinners, and those who criticize artistically have hailed trash in the past!" Gabriel exposes the hypocrisy of those who claim righteousness but beneath that veneer are bursting at the seams to cry out 'Crucify Him!' anew. 'Give us Barrabas', they demand, represented in the criminal 'The Da Vinci Code'. 'We will not have truth interrupt our agenda!' Gabriel lays out the scenario of how this is playing out in his column History Repeats Itself!
    Catholic PewPOINT
    While Gabriel above sounds the clarion on the stage that is The Passion, editor Michael Cain goes further in identifying the players, exposing the Scribes and Pharisees for what they are: hypocrites. Documenting this hypocrisy he lambasts certain bishops and a priest who dared anger the Triune God by besmirching His house with pagan worship. It is uncanny how the events and players surrounding 'The Passion of The Christ' in 2004 so clearly replicate the very characters of that very real drama in 33 A.D. As Cain explains in naming names, the players, both good and bad, retain the same characteristics. Just as they did not get the message the first time, so too they do not seem to get it this time around. Cain laments that if Mel Gibson's film doesn't move their hardened hearts, most likely nothing will. That is why prayer is so vital right now and why The Daily Catholic has called for a Novena of Rosaries for the conversion of hearts as he explains in his editorial The Passion and Conversion of Hearts!

      Yesterday:
      FOCUS
      With the revolting events from Massachusetts to San Francisco, with the Church being such a namby-pamby as far as speaking out definitively and absolutely against sodomy in every sense, we focus on true Church teaching and what every priest was supposed to have learned during his seminary days studying moral theology. Unfortunately most have forgotten or compromised for fear of being called a 'homophobe' or being 'intolerant.' That has only helped the entire sodomite movement and gravely harmed countless souls, not to mention debasing civilization as we know it. The selling of sodomy must stop! Beginning today Father Lawrence Smith focuses on why the sodomy agenda cannot continue and everyone of us needs to fight it vigorously and courageously. You don't want to leave it to God alone for that could be devastating. Father begins a multi-part treatise on "Vital Distinctions in Moral Theology" with part one The antithesis of "Be fruitful and multiply"
      Christ or chaos
      You won't believe the travesty that took place on the campus of Notre Dame last week and how so many just looked the other way. The very ones who should have been on their guard to ban any kind of sodomite agenda from crossing the South Bend threshold are defending sin and turning away any graces or aids to curb concupiscence. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey relates the sad results and rallies the faithful to pray all the more as he shares with readers of The Remnant his personal experience with those who should be defending the Faith and are instead betraying the Faith, greatly tarnishing the Golden Dome, not to mention countless souls. How dare they still call Notre Dame Catholic as Tom relates in his piece filed for The Remnant Censorship for Defenders of Our Lady at Notre Dame; Free Press for Sodomites at Notre Dame?

        Yesterday:
        "Qui legit, intelligat"
        In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Sexagesima Sunday, he lamented how the church of modern times has basically sold out the Faith to please man, especially in the heresies that other churches are to be recognized as 'equal' to the Catholic Church and that the Jews' wait for the Messiah was not in vain. This now is being magnified as the Vatican is faced with a decision, one they are manifestly afraid of: Stand up for what the Gospel says or stand by their compromise with the Jews and other agents of Mammon which contradicts the Scriptures. The U.S. Bishops have seemingly opted for the latter by distributing a warning about Mel Gibson's masterpiece 'The Passion of The Christ' while letting every other heresy and abuse go unnoticed. It is no coincidence that Mel chose Mary of Agreda's writings to amplify the Gospel for it was this venerable woman, so ignored by the modern saint-maker, who has foretold that Our Lady will conquer and end all heresy. It is the last hurrah, thank God! Thus, while all looks hopeless, there is great hope on the horizon, just as God has promised and the famous Hilaire Belloc encouraged. Such are The The Glories of the Bold

        Saturday:
        HOT ISSUES
        The fruits of victory are sweet and Jacob Michael issued a challenge to all Traditional Catholics to join him in a nine-day novena of Daily Rosaries for the freedom and exaltation of Holy Mother the Church beginning in Grand Rapids as a grand experiment that can blossom into many, many fruits for the secular media, amazed over what Fr. Michael McMahon and the SSPX parishioners did in prayerfully evicting the Buddhist monks from the Basilica of St. Adalbert on Tuesday night, now want to know more about the Society and Jacob has been invited to write an editorial laying out the truth: The Latin Mass has never been abrogated, Catholics can fulfill their Sunday obligation by attending a Traditional Latin Mass whether in a SSPX parish or an independent parish. Jacob is going to prove in a secular newspaper that the Diocesan bishop and the pastor are totally wrong and hopefully, prayerfully this will wake up countless Catholics that they are free to attend the Latin Mass once again. If this can be accomplished in Grand Rapids, it can mushroom around the country. The Counter-Revolution has begun! Jacob laid out the strategy in his brief plea:Finish the Race!
        Gabriel's Clarion
        Gabriel Garnica sounded the clarion about how the essence of Valentine's Day has been so twisted and paganized. Probably never before has this been more ironic than these times when the intent of the day - to promote the God-given gift of love between a man and a woman for the purpose of Holy Matrimony for the express objective of procreation - has become so perverted that the meaning today represents adultery, sodomy and, yes, murder. Gabriel pointed out that God is Love and His True Love is embodied in His Mystical Body - the spotless Bride of Christ encompassing the True Faith. Accept no substitutes. Sorry, Forrest Gump, but life is not a box of chocolates. No, it is living in harmony with God's laws and striving to know, love and serve God in this world so that we can be happy with Him in the next. That's basic Baltimore Catechism which maybe we should send others in lieu of flowers, cards and candy. Gabriel provided the points of The Irony of Valentine's Day

        Friday:
        Traditional Thoughts
        The Rector of St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary Father Yves le Roux offered a sobering essay for all Catholics, especially parents who are struggling with balancing their values with the overpowering mores being dictated by the world. Too often, Fr. pointed out, we as Catholics succumb to the Protestant morality that it is all inevitable and we can do nothing about it. Nothing could be further from the truth and we need to shake the cobwebs of such nonsense, such heresy, and reclaim our children and civilization for Catholic morality which has been turned topsy-turvy especially over the past half a century in which so much as been Protestantized and so many souls lost in the unbloody revolution that has taken place right under our noses. He rebuked the Protestant notion that grace suppresses nature. Indeed it does not, rather it elevates it. He encouraged parents to nourish affection, true parental affection and love on their children so they will have a solid foundation when all else is crumbling around them. Father got to the core in Problems of Disaffection

        Thursday:
        "Quid dicit Scriptura?" Jacob Michael followed up his inital report filed in Wednesday's issue, with a more thorough background and description on how, where, when, who, why and what happened Tuesday night in the Basilica of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Moved by the Holy Ghost, a righteous indignation against violaters of the First Commandment, and utilizing the powerful weapon known as the Holy Rosary of Mary, loyal Roman Catholics - almost 200 strong led by courageous Society of Saint Pius X priest Fr. Michael McMahon - literally blasted the Buddhist monks out of the Basilica. In fact, according to secular media reports, their protest was so violent in reciting the Ave Marias and Hail Mary's that the pastor had no recourse but to call in the local gendarmes. Egads, how do we stop such "violence" as peaceful, reverent prayer? Jacob exposed the true absurdity, the true scandal personified in the pastor Fr. Thomas DeYoung himself as he explained in his column Booting the Buddhists from the Basilica!
        A Chronicle of Catholic Tradition
        In the sixth chapter of our series on the history of Holy Mother Church and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, we turned to the man Our Lord Jesus Christ appointed to lead His Church - Tu es Petrus - the fisherman Simon Peter. A more unlikely candidate the majority would never pick. But in His Divine Wisdom Christ knew exactly what He was doing. As is the case with anything from God, satan will always try to muck up the works. The early days of the Church were no exception as the father of half-truths sought to disrupt and divide the followers of Christ, pitting those loyal to Peter against those loyal to Paul and vice versa. An institution of any less founding could not have survived the early bickering and division. But the institution Jesus founded was not a temporal foundation, but an eternal one - the Heavenly Jerusalem on earth: His One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church built on, as we presented in part five, The Rock!

        Wednesday:
        The Sanity of Sanctity
        In honor of Wednesday's feast of Our Lady of Lourdes we presented a special feature on this most famous of Marian Shrines. This is the 150th Anniversary of the Dogma of the Immaculate Conception, decreed by Pope Pius IX in 1854. Four years later Our Lady appeared to a young peasant girl of the Soubirous family and confirmed to her the infallible dogma as we detailed in Part One at The Healing Waters of Lourdes Part One and The Healing Waters of Lourdes Part Two.
        Gabriel's Clarion
        In honor of the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, Gabriel Garnica related his experience at this international Marian Shrine in the Apennine Moutains in southern France. Not only the River Gave flows through this quaint village dating back to the time of the Gauls, but the fallen angel is not far away, hovering and luring the faithful from the purity of the message of Lourdes. Just as in Rome where vendors vie for the attention that should be focused on the spiritual, so also in the Village of Bernadette commerce takes a backseat to no one. This is one of the dangers Gabriel warned about in describing the three armies who gather there. If one is not girded in the armor of God at all times, their Achilles heel can be compromising to progress and the profane. Satan loves that as Gabriel explained in The Lesson of Lourdes
