    Double Major Feast of the Baptism of the Lord and the Octave of the Feast of the Epiphany

    WHITE Vestments
    Mass: Missa "Ecce advenit Dominator Dominus"
    for the Proper of the Mass in conjunction with the Ordinary of the Mass
    Tomorrow is the Double Feast of St. Hilary of Poitiers, Bishop and Doctor of the Church
    White vestments.
    Mass is the Missa "In medio Ecclesiae"
    REASON #13.
       Because the New Mass blurs what ought to be a sharp difference between the HIERARCHIC Priesthood and the common priesthood of the people (as does Protestantism).
      As we know from statistics released and the admissions of so many priests and laity belief in an Alter Christus have greatly waned for today they are considered mere presiders while the people consider themselves on an equal with the priest. The Vatican was warned of this catastrophe. See The Ottaviani Intervention This is the thirteenth 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 #13.
        By offering this act of worship to God, thou dost make reparation for the glory which thou hast failed to give Him.
      This is just the thirteenth 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.

    Pray for John Paul II that he will awake from the poisonous 40-year slumber and return Holy Mother Church to its rightful place as the true Mystical Body of Christ and consecrate Russia to Mary's Immaculate Heart.

  • Catharine Lamb returns for the New Year with a renewed desire to refresh Roman Catholics with the meaning of the Mass and remind Catholics everywhere of what has been lost. She points to the fact that so much of the old tried and true is being discarded in favor of the new. This can be tragic, especially in forgetting those immemorial saints who are in The True Hall of Fame.

  • Editor Michael Cain follows up his editorial Tolkien the Prophet! a week ago on "The Lord of the Rings" Trilogy and J.R.R. Tolkien's Catholic inferences with opinions and insights which readers have submitted on their takes of what they discerned as he takes you on a Return to the Rings
      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

    Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I adore Thee profoundly, I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, present in all the true tabernacles of the world, in reparation for all the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart, and through the intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I pray for the conversion of poor sinners.

    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!

    Shears and Tears of a Lamb
    We are delighted to welcome back Catharine Lamb after a family hiatus. Many have missed her insights of one who has recently turned her back forever on the Novus Ordo and embraced the Traditional Mass of All Ages. She laments that so many Catholics today are fed a Catholic-lite menu of TV-Land Catholicism with EWTN which, in fact, is keeping many lukewarm, not allowing Catholics to truly know the fullness of their Faith. Thus, today Catharine begins a series on the differences of the Novus Ordo and the True Holy Mass, focusing first and foremost on the Canon of the Mass - the Saints forever remembered in the Canon of the Holy Mass which, as she explains, is The True Hall of Fame.

    Catholic PewPOINT
    Editor Michael Cain shares feedback from readers on their interpretations they perceived in J.R.R. Tolkien's great trilogy "The Lord of the Rings." Some are quite insightful, others quite a reach and a few quite radical. But we asked for your feedback and we got it so to share with you what some of our readers think, Cain has dedicated this week's editorial to readers' responses to last week's editorial "Tolkien the Prophet!" in his commentary today, entitled Return to the Rings

      Gabriel's Clarion
      Gabriel Garnica illustrates the inevitable collision ahead between two runaway trains hurtling forward in the darkness of refusing to acknowledge God's will. He illustrates that the more technology grows, the less we remember and practice our spiritual and moral values. Convenience and instant gratification have replaced work ethics and sacrifice. The result: Danger ahead. Erosion and possible explosions threaten us at every unknown twist and turn ahead on the track society is on today. Why would we take such a dangerous journey of no return? Gabriel clears away the dust and grime of the mine shaft of fate in showing us how we will be shafted if we do not fortify the girders of our Faith and trust in God to get us off this path plunging toward perdition as he warns in his column High Tech and Low Spirit! Where Are We Headed? .
      We brought you a most revealing article by John Vennari, editor of Catholic Family News that appears in his most recent excellent monthly publication. You won't believe the syncretism exhibited by the Cardinal Patriarch of Lisbon, Portugal Jose de Cruz Policarpo, but then if you've been following the ecumania of turning Fatima into an interfaith shrine, you will believe it. Despite the damage control ZENIT and other neo-Catholic pubs try to spin in being the voice of the deniars and liars in Rome and elsewhere, this follow-up piece by Vennari - who was personally present at this aberration of a conference at Fatima - provides undeniable facts and a follow-up exposé of the hypocrisy and cover-up going on as he explained in More News on the Interfaith Program at Fatima

        Qui legit, intelligat
        In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Double Major Feast of the Holy Family, he lamented how the family of the Church, which is founded on the ideals of the Holy Family, is further being divided by the latest abomination that has been pronounced by modern Rome, one that contradicts all that eternal Rome has always preached. Father is referring specifically to John Paul II's totally humanistic indicators both on January 1st and 6th which falsely lead people to think that humanity has the answers to peace on this earth and that 'love conquers all.' Each day in his stubborn quest to forge his legacy as the great leader of ecumania, the pope veers further away from Catholic doctrine as Father explained in his sermon A Disturbing Gospel of Peace and Love.

        Dr. Frank Joseph weighed in Friday with comments about an article that appeared in Thursday's WorldNetDaily which, really is old news about Bishop Raymond Burke telling pro-abort Catholic politicians, most specifically Democratic Congressman David Obey, to cease from receiving communion if he persists in his pro-abort agenda. We've heard this before and always nothing comes of it. Why should we think it will this time? Public excommunication of the worst offenders is necessary. While Obey may not obey, neither have the bishops. Obey is small fish compared the real whales of the pro-abortion, pro-sodomy anti-Catholic agenda - CINOs Ted Kennedy and John Kerry and that ilk.Frank explains in his column Miters Without Muscle .

        Gabriel's Clarion
        Gabriel Garnica continued on his treatise pointing out the alarming aspects of The New Order. Today he focuses on time management and time itself. He showed 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. 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 explained in his column Efficiency and The New Order .
        On the BattleLine
        Friday we shared with you an interesting perspective from Atila Sinke Guimarães as he took 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 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. Just like the shifting sands of Cuba's shores, souls are being sucked under, hope waning as Cuban Communist rigidity grows even stronger while the Pope does nothing to follow-up. All show and no finish. Atila also hit 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
