In honor of the traditional feast of the Purification of Mary when, 40 days after giving birth she presented herself and her Divine Son in the Temple as was the Jewish custom, Gabriel Garnica has chosen nine verses uttered by this most Immaculate of women to her cousin Elizabeth and recorded for all time in Luke 1: 46-55. He magnifies the might of her words as the total fiat of God's holy will in all things and a simple guide for each of us to strive for holiness in this fleeting life. He shows how nothing of the secular or ecclesial New Order can measure up to the simplicity and humility of this wonderful prayer. The Magnificat - Mary's Answer to the New Order
"Qui legit, intelligat"
In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Fourth Sunday After Epiphany, he focuses on today's Epistle and the Apostle Paul's meaning of love. It is far different than what the church of Vatican II is pushing with their 'civilization of love' propaganda and heretical 'flight plan' of the last 40 years. Just as the Apostles in today's Gospel were on a journey, being tossed to and fro in the boat as the waves lapped against the hull, they turned to their only Hope - Christ - to save them. With Divine Power He quelled the raging sea. Father provides a parable of another journey, a doomed flight that is destined to crash land for it is off course - far, far off course. Despite the refrains from Rome to "come fly with me" to Utopia on earth, there is nothing ahead except the fathoms of destruction which modern Rome is plunging toward, taking with it so many countless passengers who are depending on man to steer them to salvation when Who they really need to turn to is Christ as their Sovereign King and Pilot. Only He can provide the parachutes of pure Truth and Love as Father asserts in his poignant sermon The Decline and Fall of the Civilization of Love
Shears and Tears of a Lamb
Catharine Lamb resumed her feature on the Canon of the Mass and those who are honored. She featured the holy martyred successors of Peter who are specifically mentioned in the Communicantes before the Consecration. Catharine provided some background and the interesting puzzlement as to which Pope Sixtus is referred to in the Canon. She also showed that the Church - at least up until Vatican II - always took great measures to preserve the purity of the Papacy and to pray that the Pope not be led astray by the enemies of the Church. She included a special prayer from the Preces of the Brieviary in her column Sainted Popes: The REAL Thing!
In a sequel to his column this past Tuesday, Gabriel Garnica continued in the same vein in sounding the clarion as to the false sirens that have so consumed the minds and manners of today's public at the detriment of their spiritual values. He blamed it on a lack of true heroes today and the need for more people like Mel Gibson to come forward to lead the media and entertainment industry back to the golden years when entertainment was truly entertainment and conveyed truth. Today's media are the wolves in sheep's clothing enticing so many blind sheep into swallowed the poison offered up at the troubling trough of television titillation and movie madness as once again Gabriel went Beyond the glamor and glitz Two
Chronicle of Catholic Tradition
In the fourth chapter of our new series on the history of Holy Mother Church and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, we highlighted the customs and traditions first established in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, combining both Judaic and Christian traditions into a new tradition. Guided by the Sanctifier, which Christ promised, we see the development of the sacrifice which Abraham offered in place of his son Jacob, carried out on the Cross and perpetuated for the faithful in the Holy Mass in the unbloody offering up of The Spotless Lamb of God
Editor Michael Cain sounded the alarm loud and clear to every neo-Catholic who has ears to hear. The latest acts of this Pontiff are not that of a sick and dying man, but of a heretic who has apostasized the Faith by appointing a Jewish Bishop who relishes his Jewishness more than his Catholic heritage and openly has announced the anathema that, thanks to the 'new theology' Jews no longer need to convert. Cain asks then was all that went before, the efforts and works of the saints all in vain? Were Christ and His Apostles wrong? It's either that or the admission by every Catholic that this Pope has gone too far this time and betrayed Christ and His Church. Cain calls every neo-Catholic to fess up to the sad, but inevitable truths of The Judas Kiss
In a response to criticism that he was too harsh on his critique of Joan of Arcadia, Gabriel Garnica answers his critics with solid arguments that do indeed separate the wheat from the chaff when it comes to quality entertainment with sound content. Joan is anything but sound as minions of couch potatoes clamor for more of their mindless all-inclusive tripe that passes as something of value!?! Gabriel fires back in his column Beyond the glamor and glitz
