    We urge all to join us beginning today in a Nine Day Novena of Rosaries 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. Tonight the liberal media mogul ABC, part of the Disney conglomerate and anti-Gibson faction, is touting an exclusive interview with Mel on Prime Time at 9 p.m. EST and PST, 8 CST. It promises to be interesting. 9 Days to Go!
    Huge Win for Terri Schiavo: Court Backs Governor Bush, Terri's Family.
       The family of Terri Schiavo got its first big break from a court in a long time when the Florida 2nd District Court of Appeal ruled Friday that a judge should have allowed Terri's family defend their daughter in the lawsuit filed against Terri's Law. The court also said Governor Bush's attorneys can question witnesses in the case... See Steven Ertelt's story at LifeNews.com

       Because the intrinsic beauty of the Traditional Mass attracts souls by itself; whereas the New Mass, lacking any attractiveness of its own, has to invent novelties and entertainments in order to appeal to the people.
    Never mind what God thinks or expects. Today's new church is so enraptured with humanism and the dignity of man for man's sake in his quest for divinity that the necessary worship, adoration, thanksgiving, petition and penitence to God has been greatly deducted from the equation. However, in order to do this so insidiously it was necessary to slowly chip away through ambigious tomes to deceive the faithful, then, as was pointed out yesterday, present a new catechism, a new calendar, a new Code of Canon Law and, of course, a new liturgy. But since it has no substance and is totally synthetic more novelties and innovations were necessary to keep it on life support. The best example is the recent announcement that the Pope has just called a Synod of World Bishops for October 2005 to 'study the Eucharist.' A few hours with the SSPX bishops should be sufficient thank you. 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-seventh 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:


        By hearing the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, thou canst also enrich thy soul more than anything else in the world.
    This is the forty-seventh 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.

    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

    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

    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 MotherSSPX priest Fr. Michael McMahon being led by the men in blue through the vestibule, down the stairs, to talk things over
with the authorities.  Notice the Crucifix over his right
shoulder... very reminiscent of the Palace Guard,
leading Christ to His death. Will you follow Fr. Michael and take up your Cross as well? 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 today 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?"
    Beyond the Holy Name Society men in the front pews, Fr. McMahon kneels on the side leading the Rosary while the monks continue to be dazed. Don't they get it? Get off the altar and out of the basilica! 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 Fr. Michael McMahon who led the Resisters in driving out the demons Nearly 200 loyal Catholics fire their weapons by reciting the Rosary on their knees. Note the 'rebellious garb' - coats and ties - of these young warriors of Our Lady's Army 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!

    In this same vein, we offer an opportunity for you to put in your two-cents. To the left is what we surmise the Tibetan monks were saying to each other as they hid under the pews on Tuesday night. To the right is the chance for you to fill in the blank what you think they were saying to each other. Let us know what 1. said to 2. and we'll publish the best ones. Send your captions to: Editor


    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 Healing Graces of Lourdes
      Saint Bernadette







          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 the first part Tuesday at The Healing Waters of Lourdes Part One and Wednesday atThe 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

    Catholic PewPOINT
    With all the persecution being aimed at Mel Gibson, he must feel like a marked man. Editor Michael Cain showed where that suits Mel just fine for the more he is scourged in the press, the more he is following in the footsteps of Christ Jesus, Who Mel has devoted his entire energy to in producing and directing the greatest film ever made. Cain delved into the real reasons behind the bitter barbs and why the attackers are so rabid. Could it be because they are afraid of the Truth? You got it and so does Mel as he remains as wise as a serpent and as guileless as a dove as he builds an army of supporters among a network of churches who we hope and pray will finally realize where the True Sacrifice they are witnessing on film is still played out daily in the one True Mass, the Traditional Latin Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Mel's hope and prayers, as well as countless Traditional Catholics, is that God will work miracles through this vehicle of evangelization as Cain explained in his editorial A man of his word true to the Word!

    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 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


       We invite you to find out for yourself the truth as we present a compendium portal of documents on the Faith in all aspects, past, present and to come. We guarantee what you read is in full harmony with the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church, and we guarantee you that if you read it all with a discerning heart you will be able to decipher the wheat from the chaff. You will better understand what the absolutes of our Faith are and not be fooled by modernism and ambiguities, no matter how cleverly they are couched. Remember satan is the father of half-truths. Read the fullness of the Truths and Traditions of the Roman Catholic Faith in the sections below.
