      Vigil of the Feast of the Epiphany of Our Lord
      WHITE Vestments
      Mass: Missa "Missa "Dum medium silentium for the Proper of the Mass in conjunction with the Sunday within the Octave of Christmas except for the Gospel, and the Third Collect, Secret and Postcommunion there is a commemoration of Pope Saint Telesphorus. Ordinary of the Mass
    Tuesday's Mass is the Double of the First Class Feast of the EPIPHANY OF OUR LORD.
    For the Proper of tomorrow's Mass, see Missa "Ecce advenit Dominator Dominum"
    REASON #5.
       Because the difference between the two is not simply one of mere detail or just modification of ceremony, but "all that is of perennial value finds only a minor place (in the New Mass), if it subsists at all." *
      * The quote is from Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani and Cardinal Antonio Bacci to Paul VI on September 25, 1969 in the The Ottaviani Intervention This is the fifth 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 #5.

       For thy salvation He renews the saving mystery of the Incarnation.
      This is just the fifth 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.

  • Gabriel Garnica sounds the clarion on a VIRUS ALERT! No, it's not the computer though God knows we sweat that out daily, but from a deadlier source - one that spams our souls - as he shares in his column The New Order As a Worldwide "Virus"

  • Kirstie and Ron Finster continue their series on The Third Secret of Fatima by delving further into the meaning of 'killing' Archbishop Lefebvre by cutting him off from the Church through "excommunication." They explain in Part Four: The Crucifixion of the Body of Christ?.

    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 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
    We want to build a Traditional Roman Catholic community where people everywhere can attend the True Mass when visiting the Branson area. However this is impossible without an Authentic Roman Catholic priest. Therefore, we are letting it be known that we are praying, if it be God's Will, that a priest will decide he's had enough of the New Order Mess and seek to return to the rite, right and reverence of True Catholicism by saying the Latin Mass daily. Right now all we could provide unless we receive donations to supplement a priest, are accommodations. If you know of a priest who might feel called to say the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass on a regular basis in the beautiful, scenic Tri-Lakes area of Ozark Mountain Country in Southwest Missouri and would be available to relocate, please contact us at Need Traditional Priest

  • Today:
      Gabriel's Clarion
      In Gabriel Garnica's column today he sounds the clarion of a very deadly virus alert that can infect us all. It is so devious and most of the time, unless we are grounded in our Faith, we won't have a clue until it's too late. Just as a computer virus can wipe out a computer's memory, the New Order is trying to wipe out our memories of what God wants us to remember. We need virus protection from this very clever and very deadly virus. That protection? It's called grace and wisdom! The password: Faith! Gabriel outlines the symptoms and what to be on the lookout for in his column VIRUS ALERT! The New Order As a Worldwide "Virus".
      Ron and Kirstie Finster continue with their on-going series on the Third Secret of Fatima as they delve deeper into the meaning of the 'killing' of the "Bishop in White." As they have pointed out in previous installments, the "Bishop" in question is most probably not the Pope, but rather Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre who was 'killed' by being cut off from the Mystical Body of Christ. In effect, the Finsters point out, however that it was not the man - but Christ Who is crucified anew because of the separation of Tradition and Pope for when the latter 'cut off' the Archbishop, he also cut off Tradition. The fact remains Tradition cannot do without the Pope and likewise the Pope cannot do without Tradition as the Finsters explain in Part Four of their series: The Crucifixion of the Body of Christ?.
      Defending Tradition!
      Mel Gibson has bravely withstood the slings and arrows flung at him over his bold, genius task of making the greatest film on Christ and His Passion ever. Earlier attacks have proved to backlash against the attackers of Mel and his work because truth always rises to the surface. Yet they continue to try to deceive. One such example is AP writer Rachel Zoll's article on December 27th in trying to 'expose' Gibson as an 'unfaithful Catholic'. Nothing could be further from the truth. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey comes to Mel's and Catholic Tradition's defense for both stand for Truth. Tom completely refutes her yellow journalistic piece and the mindset that doctrine can change. For Tom's article, just published in the excellent Traditional bi-weekly The Remnant, see As Hostile to the Truth Now as in the First Century
      Qui legit, intelligat
      In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Double of the Second Class Feast of the Most Holy Name of Jesus, he elaborates on the beauty and treasure of this wonderful, holy Name that is above all others. Sacred Scripture and Holy Mother Church express this so beautifully, and yet today His Holy Name is profaned so, most of who do so fail to realize Christ's Own words in Matthew 12: 26 that each man shall be held accountable for what he says. If only these exclamations were a prayer instead of a profanity. Father points out that one way to reverse the trend is for True Catholics to bring back the reverence and to place the monogram emblem IHS above the doors of our homes in much the same manner as the Jews placed the blood of the lamb over their doors at Passover. And why not? It is the blood of the Lamb shed for us that is our salvation. How do we repay Him? By defiling His Holy Name? Not a good idea. A better idea is to recall the great Hymns that sustained the Church for so many centuries and to bow our heads and bend our knee in total reverence to our King as he points out in his sermon today Blessed be His Holy Name
      John Vennari, editor of Catholic Family News and one who was actually present at the now infamous Fatima Conference this past Fall issues a blatant rebuttal statement to the irresponsible journalism of ZENIT and the double-speak of those prelates who should be trustworthy, but have long ago foresaken Catholic doctrine and the wisdom of the Church and her Supreme Pontiffs. For John's Rebuttal, see Rebuttal Statement from John Vennari on ZENIT's 'Fatima Report'
      When sleeping dogs like the Rector of Fatima and the President of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue lie, they really lie. In trying to divert the obvious attention away from their hidden agendas, they do what any deceiver would do, blame someone else. Who? Who better than Father Gruner? He's the Vatican's favorite whipping boy. While every abuse in the world goes on under these curiouser and curiouser (as Lewis G. Carroll would put it) curial canines' noses, they ignore the stench of their own scent and blame the one whose purpose is to clean out the pens of all the excrement piled up over these past 40 years. Editor Michael Cain fires back on this Hot Issue with his tongue-in-cheek title Blame Father Gruner!.
      Ron and Kirstie Finster continue with their on-going series on the Third Secret of Fatima with a most fascinating look at the Psalms 55-57 to which the vision released by the Vatican appears to direct us by the use of the phrase "bullets and arrows." In striving to grasp a correct understanding of the meaning hidden within these psalms, they turn to the holy Doctor of the Church St. Augustine of Hippo who wrote extensively on the psalms over 1,500 years ago. Oh what prophetic words David penned that apply most especially today when Tradition is so under assault by those very ones who were weaned on the Faith. For their interesting take in a follow-up to their first two installments, see Saint Augustine and the Psalms

    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
