    TODAY'S PROPER OF THE HOLY MASS: Tomorrow is the Octave Day of the Double of the Second Class Feast of Saint Stephen. For more about this First Martyr of the Church and the Simple Feast Proper of the Mass for tomorrow, see Missa "Sederunt principes"
    REASON #1.
       Because the New Mass is not an unequivocal Profession of the Catholic Faith (which the traditional Mass is), it is ambiguous and Protestant. Therefore since we pray as we believe, (lex orandi, lex credendi) it follows that we cannot pray with the New Mass in Protestant Fashion and still believe as Catholics!
      This is the first of 62 reasons which were submitted by the Priests of Campos and endorsed by the late great Bishop Castro de Mayer. Each day we will publish one of the 62 until they are all complete.
    Conversely in the True Holy Mass of All Ages:

    GRACE #1.

       For thy salvation God the Father sends His beloved Son down from Heaven.
      This is just the 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.

    Father Louis Campbell reveals in his sermon why the Feast of the Circumcision today represents for us the very essence of Christ's Love and Sacrifice.

    Editor Michael Cain answers a disgruntled, embittered lady scrooge who laments the 'bitter fruits' of feminism as he points out the very purpose of the Circumcision in The First Baptism of Blood

    Gabriel Garnica begins the New Year by sounding the clarion about the bad fruit that contains the poisons of perfectionism in the New Order in his column Perfectionism and The New Order.

    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 on-line at WHITE SMOKE, BLACK FIRE!
    For timely and hard-hitting editorials on the HOT ISSUES that are effecting the world and Church today. see the most recent commentary:: The 'Fruits' of Mammon!
      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
    Features Today:
      Qui legit, intelligat
      In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Double of the Second Class Feast of the Circumcision of Our Lord on New Year's Day, he emphasizes the salvific essence of love and sacrifice, two elements sadly lacking in the New World Order 'Mass' and the tenets of the 'New Evangelization' which seem to bypass the Cross in going straight to the Resurrection. It cannot be done. There is no shortcut! We can only pray the administrators of the New Order apparatchix and the so-called 'Civilization of Love' in the 'new springtime' will realize this before more souls are sacrificed to the false values of mammon. True love means to turn away from sin, away from false prophets and listen only to the One Who is the Truth, the Way and the Life. He is Love and Sacrifice
      Catholic PewPOINT
      On Christmas day editor Michael Cain found a bit of the 'bah humbug' in his e-mail box - a letter from an embittered, hurting woman expressing feelings that seemingly sum up the discontent of so many who have trusted in mammon for the answers and always end up unfulfilled and bitter. If only they would understand that everything Our Lord did or underwent, including His Circumcision, had a specific purpose for us. He shares his response to this poor soul with so much sadness and bitterness in her heart on the day which should have been for everyone the happiest day of the year - the Birth of our Lord and Savior. What she ridicules, Cain exalts as God-given for all the right purposes in his editorial The First Baptism of Blood.
      Gabriel's Clarion
      Gabriel begins today a feature on the poisons that have infected the New Order - both the Novus Ordo Seculorum of the world and the Novus Ordo Missae of the Church. Both have become victims of the deadly toxins that so contaminate and kill souls. Why over these past 40 years have we so ambitiously sought after the forbidden fruit of earthly perfection at the expense of our immortal souls? Gabriel responds in part, "The tradition of our Faith is one of redemption, forgiveness, sacrifice, mercy, and charity, which all embrace imperfection. Even Christ, perfect as He is, allowed Himself to be subject to the limits and sufferings of this imperfect world. Today's Feast of His Circumcision confirms that. The Holy Bible is nothing if not an encyclopedia detailing humanity's imperfection and God's love and assistance to relieve and transcend that imperfection." Gabriel delves into the prognosis and the cure in his column Perfectionism and The New Order.

      Mario Derksen pulls no punches as he documents the Newchurch's relentless, blatant and blasphemous efforts to destroy Fatima and its importance in Church annals for, like any criminal, they must destroy the evidence or else be caught for the deceiving liars they are and their agenda which is, pure and simple, dictated by the prince of the world - the winged warrior of all evil who directs the obliteration of the beautiful Fatima basilica so that the most mundane monstrosities of the new age can be erected to all the gods who serve at the altar of lucifer. Mario outlines how this subterfuge has been able to gain legs as he explains in his column Finishing with Fatima - How much the New Church hates Fatima
      On the BattleLine
      Atila Sinke Guimar„es points out that no one should be surprised by the progressivists' attempts to dishonor and discredit the message of Our Lady in Fatima. If only we had kept better vigil, we would have seen well before now how they were so methodically blurring the Message of Fatima...back when the influential Modernist Yves Congar so deftly undermined Our Lady and the importance of Fatima. Cardinals Sodano and Ratzinger fell in line with no resistance from one of Congar's biggest fans - Karol Wojtyla, and so the subterfuge continues - from fabricating the Third Secret to turning this Catholic shrine into a sterile, circular pagan interfaith center. Atila provides three major steps of why, how and who in his article The Progressivist Challenge to Fatima

      Echoes of True Catholicism
      Dr. Marian Horvat provides a lengthy but absolutely necesary column that every person in your family, office and anywhere else - whether they are Catholic or not - should read if they think everyone's going to Heaven. If they believe this heresy, then they're in for a mighty big shock. Marian's article incorporates a letter from a soul in hell who, through a dream, relates the eternal regrets one has when they have been damned, entitled "Letter from Beyond." The article should touch hardened hearts and wake up so many how important the holy Faith is and how poorly all have been catechized. Please read it before it's too late for you. Along with the words, the magnificent paintings Marian presents clearly define that a picture is worth a thousand words. This article will truly move you to think of hell now so you won't have to experience it later. Americans Think Hell Exists, But No One Goes There .
      Quid Dicit Scriptura
      With the addition of Jacob Michael we can now provide the reader a a steady diet of Catholic Apologia in order to counteract Protestant friends who are great at quoting Sacred Scripture and even better at taking it out of context and interpreting according to how they view it, not on what the Church has always directed in discerning that which the Holy Ghost has inspired as Divine Revelation. The whole question comes down to "What saith the Scriptures?" and that is the title of Jacob's column - in Latin, of course: "Quid Dicit Scriptura?", with passages taken from the Latin Vulgate Douay Rheims Roman Catholic version. He continues with this issue his multi-part installment on "The Gospel is the Kingdom" with part four The Promise Fulfilled
      Pro Life Prescriptions
      Dr. Frank Joseph's column this month rips asunder the seamless garment theology of the New Order Bishops who have no intention of honoring the 5th Commandment or upholding their Apostolic duties. He cites reasons why, if they will not obey God, then we must not obey them. We should work to have them ousted and put in holy men who will have the welfare of their flocks' souls first and foremost. To make sure more souls are not scandalized, the good bishops must excommunicate anyone who refuses what Holy Mother Church demands beginning with the eviction of those who stubbornly uphold the "Party of Death" as Frank explains in We must rip apart the Bishops' 'seamless garment' theory!
      Doctors of the Church
      The thirty-first Doctor in this chronological series on the Doctors of the Church was born in France, yet reached every corner of the world with his works and influence. His piety, zeal and energy caught the eye of no less than the Pope himself who made him one of the youngest bishops to rule the See of Geneva. Along with another saint, he founded the Visitandines. He was known for his gentleness and meekness, and his holiness so well known that he was the first person to be beatified in the new St. Peter's Basilica. In 1923 he was officially proclaimed "Patron Saint of the Catholic Press." This meek warrior of the word was Saint Francis de Sales.
      Father Moderator separates the wheat from the chaff with no-holds barred candidness in keeping the faithful abreast daily with feedback and comments of all that is happening in the Church today. Besides the best available list of Latin Masses throughout the country, he tells it like it is, never pulling punches in punching holes in all the charade that is the Vatican II church as you'll see in Traditio.com

       "The denial of Truth is just as fatal to the mind as the denial of light is to vision. Truth in its fullness is not easy to attain, even if one does admit its existence. To explore Truth in all its complexity there must come moments when we confess ignorance, when we frankly admit that we were mistaken or bigoted, or prejudiced. These admissions are painful, but they actually enrich character just as much as all approximations to falsehood forfeit it."              Bishop Fulton J. Sheen
