    TODAY'S PROPER OF THE HOLY MASS: Saturday's Mass is also the Feria of the Feast of the Epiphany
    For the Proper of tomorrow's Mass, see Missa "Ecce advenit Dominator Dominum"
    It is the same as today's Mass with no Credo or Special Communicantes for the Epiphany.
    REASON #9.
       Because in less than seven years after the introduction of the New Mass, priests in the world decreased from 413,438 to 243,307 -- almost 50%! (Holy See Statistics)
      As we know the statistics have only grown worse, which is inevitable from the barren tree of Vatican II. Not that the Vatican was not warned of this catastrophe; see The Ottaviani Intervention This is the ninth 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're all complete
    Conversely in the True Holy Mass of All Ages:

    GRACE #9.

       For thy salvation He mystically renews His death, and sacrifices for Thee His precious life.
      This is just the ninth 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.

    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!


  • Gabriel Garnica puts all on the 'clock' today as he points out that the only time that matters is Standard Salvation Time. In emphasizing what efficiency really means, he shows the futility of The New Order in their time management in his column Efficiency and The New Order
  • Atila Guimar„es takes a look back to 1998 when in mid-January the Pope held great promise for the 'liberation' of Cuba. What are the fruits of that visit six years later? The same as any of this regime's novelties and innovations. Atila takes a bird's eye view on The Cuban Fiasco.

    Today in Church History

    482 years ago today...the Sacred Conclave elected the first and only Dutchman ever to ascend the Chair of Peter - Cardinal Adrian Forensz Dedal, born in Utrech, Holland. He became Pope Hadrian VI on this day in 1522. This 218th Vicar of Christ would engage in a deep struggle against those who harassed the Church in the midst of the Protestant Reformation and also had to deal with the Turkish threat. On both fronts he would meet with little success.

    450 years ago today...in Bologna, Italy Alessandro Ludovisi was born on this day in 1554. He would go on to become a priest in the new Society of Jesus, then bishop and Cardinal and finally become the first Jesuit-trained Pope when he was appointed the 234th successor of Peter as Pope Gregory XV on February 9, 1621.

      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 continues on his treatise pointing out the alarming aspects of The New Order. Today he focuses on time management and time itself. He shows that no matter how much we dialogue or talk about managing our time, no matter where in the world we might live, the only time standard that we can be sure of and not worry about being late for is by keeping Standard Salvation Time! Time is precious and so fleeting and we can't afford to waste it. Every person is granted 168 hours a week, at least a third or more of that devoted to sleep. But how many are sleeping through more of that time, indeed all of it by not recognizing time slipping away? All we can manage is the time God gives us and the only way is by doing what God asks of us each and every conscious moment as Gabriel explains in his column Efficiency and The New Order .

    On the BattleLine
    Today we share with you an interesting perspective from Atila Sinke Guimar„es as he takes a look back at all the 'hope and promise' for 'justice and peace' that was supposed to bud from the 'fruitful' efforts of John Paul II's historical first visit to Cuba six years ago. But alas, in an Autumn letter from the Cuban bishops the euphoria is no more. Gloom seems to pervade all of Catholic Cuba. More evidence of the barren tree of the 'New Springtime'. No matter how they spin it, it is all evidence of the surface emotions of this regime that pushes form over substance with no solid foundations beneath the faithfuls' feet. Just like the shifting sands of Cuba's white shores, souls are being sucked under, hope waning as Cuba's rigidity and Communistic agenda grows even stronger while the Pope does nothing to follow-up. All show and no finish. Atila also hits on another sore point in Catholic doctrine today: another cardinal pandering to homosexuality by compromising on AIDS cures that only compound the sin explained in his Bird's Eye View of the News with The Cuban Fiasco


      Chronicle of Catholic Tradition
      Today we debut a new series, one that will consist of beaucoup chapters on the history of Holy Mother Church and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. We begin with the Introduction, and the sources used in this ambitious project of imparting to our readers as many nuances as possible to the early growth of the Church so that more Catholics will understand the Faith, the better they understand it, the more they'll be open to knowing the True Faith and the more they realize how this differs greatly from what is being passed off as 'Catholicism' today indeed is not Catholic at all, but humanism, modernism, and was always opposed by Holy Mother Church as we will document in this vast series which originates today with the Institution of the Blessed Sacrament in Chapter One: It is as it was!

      OP/ED Page
      Gary Morella weighs in with the incredulous question "Tell me it isn't true" as he refers to an article in ZENIT Tuesday that does not bode well for True Catholic teaching. Many who have been pontificating that 'John Paul the Great' can do no wrong had better pay strict attention to what Gary reveals in the Pope's own words in the pontiff's relentless campaign to dissolve Catholic truth in favor of humanism and ecumenism as he pushes ad nauseam the agenda of 'justice and peace' - while seemingly shunning the God-given responsibility of Holy Mother Church to be the Beacon for all - by calling upon the satanic United Nations as the answer. Gary asks some very pertinent questions in his op/ed piece on the meaning of salvation in We're in trouble when....


      Gabriel's Clarion
      In Gabriel Garnica's column today he continues on his treatise pointing out the alarming aspects of The New Order. Today he focuses on the comfort level which indeed over 40 years has made so many comfortable in their comfort zones that they never want to go back to the way it was in "the good ol' days" - read the Latin Mass and the uncompromising absolutes of Holy Mother Church. This is sad, but what is even sadder is that the more they seek comfort and convenience, the farther away they venture from what Christ intended for us all. Couch potatoes listen up to the wisdom he imparts in his column Comfort and The New Order .


      Qui legit, intelligat
      In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Double of the First Class Feast of the Epiphany, he reiterates how regal men of great wealth bowed and knelt before the greatest of Kings exemplifying what all others must do. Father points out that Herod and his dynasty of seven members was no 'coincidence' but part of Divine prophecy for Herod was not of true Israeli blood. He was an 'Idumaean' - a hybrid if you will - which means 'red' and could very well refer to the Red Dragon of the Apocalypse. Father goes on to equate the Herods in the Church today who persecute the innocent - read Traditional Catholics - in slaying the unchangeable tenets of the True Faith. Like the desert of the Apocalypse we can only pray that it will swallow the river of denial and heresies that has flooded so many souls today and, with the help of the Woman - the Blessed Virgin Mary - restore Christ's Mystical Bride - His holy Church. Come, Let us Adore Him.

      Catholic PewPOINT
      On the Feast of the Epiphany editor Michael Cain focuses on the King, not just on the Child King in the manger to Whom the Three Wisemen traveled to adore, but "The Return of the King" as in the epic by J.R.R. Tolkien which, thanks to the perseverance of Peter Jackson, will now be forever embedded on the silver screen in all the glorious imagery the master storyteller intended. Cain delves even deeper for he sees an underlying theme within the Trilogy which speaks not of mythology but of a chronology of the True Faith as he details his own discernment on each character and place in "The Fellowship of the Ring," "The Two Towers," and "The Return of the King." He shares with the reader the hope that no matter how devastating the situation becomes in the months and years ahead, there definitely is a light at the end of the tunnel as our Catholic Faith teaches and Tolkien has so cleverly contained a compendium of the Faith within his majestic masterpiece of the "The Lord of the Rings" that Cain deduces the greatest storyteller of the 20th Century was not just a master word wizard, but a seer of what lay ahead. Cain explains in his breakdown of the characters and scenes in his commentary Tolkien the Prophet!.

      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
