Gabriel Garnica signals the clarion of courage which is needed to offset the cowardice that is everywhere as so many shrink from responsibility to assert moral order and to affirm moral truth in the secular and ecclesial sectors today. He asks if we really would have stood with Christ or if we, too, would flee to the eerie Sounds of Cowardice"
  • Father Lawrence Smith completes his timely three-part essay today on the "Vital Distinctions in Moral Theology." Father points out the total insanity of those who choose to shackle themselves in perversity and sin, especially in celebrating their sin as they are doing in San Francisco today. Do they really realize what they are doing? Does the true Christian know what to do? Clarity, Charity and True Justice in calling out those who defy God's Laws.

    It's not too late to join us in the continuing Nine Day Novena of Rosaries begun Monday for the conversion of hardened, cold and lukewarm hearts through Mel's film.
    Down to five days and the vitrolity is heating up all the more from the Scribes and Pharisees who are digging for every dirty secret they can to discredit not only Mel Gibson, but his film and the truths of the Gospel, trying to pass off The Passion of The Christ' as merely 'Mel's version.' Sorry, folks, it is the Gospel! That is truth - the Gospel Truth! It truly is a desperate Zionist, liberal ploy to do all they can to sabotage the unbelievable swell of support for the film. We remind you of our editorial yesterday, Caiphas appeals to Pilate and offer you comments today from Bill Donohue of the Catholic League who is thoroughly upset with the modern Sanhedrin and their vicious attacks on Mel and the film. See 5 Days to Go!
    We Repeat from Yesterday:

        San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom is supposedly CatholicArchbishop Levada is responsible to his flock to stop this nonsenseFirst ferreted out by Gary Morella Tuesday night, we have done research and discovered that, indeed, the radical flamboyent mammon-pleasing Mayor of San Francisco Gavin Newsom is supposedly 'Catholic.' He graduated from Santa Clara University, a supposedly Catholic college, and married Kimberly Guilfoyle, a graduate of Mercy High School in San Francisco. To make matters worse, they were married on the feast of the Immaculate Conception in 2001. What blasphemy Newsom has brought upon the Blessed Mother and her Divine Son and for his actions! Archbishop William Levada cannot sit idly by. Everyone is calling on Governor Arnold Schwarzenneger to step in, but he's another pro-abort, pro-sodomite Catholic in name only. The man who needs to step in and declare, for the sake of his flock and his own soul, that Gavin Newsom must be officially excommunicated for his unrepentant sin of promoting sodomy is Archbishop Levada. Damn political correctness, your Excellency, and be the shepherd you should be. Follow the example of Archbishop Raymond Burke and show some Roman Catholic backbone. If you won't, then you are not worthy to wear the miter or call yourself a bishop, let alone a priest, and certainly not a Catholic. It is getting to the point that anyone who cares about their soul should exit San Francisco now for Sodom will not stand much longer. God will not allow it! Let the bishop know you won't stand for his lukewarm silence in this matter by writing him at Secretary of Archbishop Levada
    ...And what is it with 'Catholic' Mayors having 'no problem with gay marriages'? Cardinal Francis George has a duty to crack down on Mayor Richard Daley of Chicago for his remarks which go against everything that is Catholic. These bishops have a responsibility to their flocks and to God to speak out and enforce Canon Law before the anarchy spreads further.
    See Father Lawrence Smith's masterful arguments against the allowance of such pro-sodomite aberrations in his first part from Monday's issue Part One and Part Two from Wednesday and Part Three in today's issue on Vital Distinctions in Moral Theology.

       Because the altar and tabernacle are now separated, thus marking a division between Christ in His priest-and-Sacrifice-on-the-altar, from Christ in His Real Presence in the tabernacle, "two things which of their very nature, must remain together." (Pius XII)
    So much for the wisdom of the past Pontiffs and Councils. Vatican II decided aggiornamento was more important than adoration. This was paramount in the erosion that is the synthetic liturgy. How do we separate the altar from the Tabernacle? Why, put up a table and remove the Tabernacle so it will 'have it's proper place' and 'won't distract from what is going on in the sanctuary.' A weaker argument few ever heard, yet we all went along with the destruction because we assumed it was okay. That great word 'assume' can be divided into three words which we know what it makes of you and me. That's how we feel today when we look back and see how devious the destruction was. How can this ever be good, have any fruits, especially when previous Pontiffs, many of them holy, condemned such direction? It cannot be good and it isn't. Therefore, flee from this fabricated man-made religion and liturgy that is no different from Protestantism except in name and terms, though even those have been adopted to please the Protestant mind-set. Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre (They Have Uncrowned Him and Open Letter to Confused Catholics), Atila Sinke Guimarães, (The Murky Waters of Vatican II, Animus Delendi I and II) Romano Amerio (Iota Unum), Fr. Ralph Wiltgen (The Rhine Flows into the Tiber) and Father James Wathen in his irrefutable masterpiece The Great Sacrilege, all document that the Traditional Latin Mass alone provides the divinely ordained formula for true worship of the Triune Divinity. 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 As we know no Pope since Pius XII has listened to the wisdom of Holy Mother Church and for this stubborn, prideful promotion of the church of Vatican II have indeed "incurred the wrath of God and the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul." This is the fifty-first 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:


        When thou dost bow down before the Sacred Host and the Sacred Chalice, thou dost perform a supreme act of adoration.
    This is the fifty-first 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

    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica sounds the clarion on the silence that is growing more deafening by the day. He examines the paradoxes of society which, as he states, has outSodomed the Sodom of old. The facts verify that. He tries to stir the consciences of Catholics everywhere to get off their duffs, to be the Lions of Right and Truth in roaring forth with a passion for Christ and His infrangible teachings. He asks what ever happened to the fervor, valor and zeal of the saints of yesteryear? They have compromised with the icons of idiocy that pervade civilization today, molding them into mute muppets of mammon. Unfortunately, the echo of ennui and disinterest reverberates through souls - an eerie siren of the lukewarm of which the Lord has promised in Apocalpyse 3: 16 He would vomit from His mouth for from the mouths of the lukewarm come the Sounds of Cowardice
    FOCUS
    Father Lawrence Smith completes his three part treatise on "Vital Distinctions in Moral Theology" today. It is something very needed in these times for this week the sodomites in San Francisco have gone to town with "regularizing" their depravity by the supposedly 'Catholic' Mayor Gavin Newsom directing the City Clerk to issue marriage licenses to all comers. Anarchy rules. Father asks if they realize that in celebrating the lusts of the flesh they are imprisoning themselves, calling down God's wrath upon them. It is true charity to speak out against such perverse sin for any true Christian truly loves his neighbor and doesn't want him damned. If we truly love God then we too will speak out uncompromisingly against the aberration of sodomy which has been the bane of destroying civilizations in the past. Great empires have gone the way of the dinosaur because they defied the natural and supernatural law. So also today in the United States. We must do all in our power to uphold the sacredness of Holy Matrimony and all it represents as Father explains in part three Clarity, Charity and True Justice in calling out those who defy God's Laws.

    How many have had it with the whole 'anti-Semitism' smokescreen that has made a mountain of out a molehill? We sure have and it's time to expose the snakes, or in this case the 'fox' who is igniting this bonfire of the Vanities or should we see the Vaticanities, for Abraham Foxman, the Caiphas of modern times is desperate. He is in such a panic that despite his denial on national TV Monday night that Mel and his film 'The Passion of The Christ' are not anti-Semitic, he has traveled to Rome to see the Roman 'governor' - the Pilate of modern times in John Paul II. What is Foxman stirring up? That Mel Gibson is the enemy because he is challenging the faux doctrine of Vatican II. Ah, yes, misery loves company. We got to the heart of it in our editorial Caiphas Appeals To Pilate
    A Chronicle of Catholic Tradition
    In the seventh chapter of our series on the history of Holy Mother Church and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, we picked up after the death of Saint Peter with the three successors who finished out the first century. To the chagrin of the Romans, this gnat they thought they could squash instead grew like a centipede everywhere. The more they tried to quell the peaceful uprising of following a man who died on a cross, the more Christians there were. True to the words of Tertullian, "the blood of the martyrs is the seed of Christianity." Meanwhile, many Jews came to the stark realization that the Old Covenant had indeed ended with the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 A.D. Many converted and died for the Faith of the New Covenant in order to return to the bosom of Abraham and his Creator, the Triune God as we discussed in Nothing can destroy the Spirit

    Wednesday:
    "Quid dicit Scriptura?"
    Jacob Michael began a series on the Mother of God's specific mission as Mediatrix of all graces. He documented through the early Doctors of the Church, Saints, and Popes that Church teaching has always verified Mary's role scripturally as a channel ordained by God to convey grace to mankind for she is Co-Redemptrix, Advocate and Mediatrix. In citing the renowned holy scholars such as Sts. Iraneus, Ambrose, Jerome and Bernard, as well as Popes Leo XIII through Pius XI there is irrefutable proof of the legitimate claim of calling Mary Mediatrix of all graces. Because of her healing touch, Jacob has chosen to call this set: Mother's Medicine: Mary as Mediatrix. He shared these findings in Part One The Mediatrix in the Church's Teaching
    FOCUS
    Father Lawrence Smith presented the second part of his three part treatise on "Vital Distinctions in Moral Theology" - something very needed in these times for this week the sodomites in San Francisco have gone to town with "regularizing" their depravity by the Mayor directing the City Clerk to issue marriage licenses to all comers. Massachusetts spent the last week trying to find a way to enshrine sodomy in their constitution and yet not offend the Godly while doing it; needless to say, they failed, which means that in the next couple of months, that state will throw out any pretense of righteousness and just cave in to the sodomites. Sodomy looks to loom large in the upcoming general election of the President. Father holds nothing back in exposing this ugliest of sin for what it is and that human rights have nothing to do with accommodating and promoting sin and perversion. The color of one's skin or culture are one thing, blazenly going against the natural and supernatural order are another which only calls down the vengeance of the Almighty. The selling of sodomy must stop! Father Smith focused on why the sodomy agenda cannot continue in urging every child of God to fight and abhor it vigorously and courageously. Father delineated in part two The Depravity and Devastation of Homosexuality

    Gabriel's Clarion
    In two articles that touch on the same theme Tuesday, Gabriel Garnica led 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 a week away. Gabriel pointed 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 cclaim 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 laid out the scenario of how this is playing out in his column History Repeats Itself!
    Catholic PewPOINT
    While Gabriel above sounded the clarion on the stage that is The Passion, editor Michael Cain went further in identifying the players, exposing the Scribes and Pharisees for what they are: hypocrites. Documenting this hypocrisy he lambasted 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 explained 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 lamented 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 explained in his editorial The Passion and Conversion of Hearts!

    Monday:
    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?

    SUNDAY:
    "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
