  • Continuing our Tower of Trent Tributes, we honor the second alphabetically of the three outstanding lay leaders chosen by our readers, who have made a significant impact on the Traditional movement and for Holy Mother Church. Today we honor a man known the world over and admired for both his acting and directing prowess, faith and family values. What he has accomplished this year is nothing short of a miracle and we're not even half way through the year! Yet hundreds of millions have seen his masterpiece 'The Passion of The Christ' and been deeply moved by the genuine Catholicity of his film that will live forever as a visual work of art on par with the works of the masters Michelangelo and Carravagio. Our honoree today has taken the celluloid canvas and brought it to life in a way that few meditations could ever capture for it was done through the intense passion of a man of Tradition whose truly Catholic work has touched more souls than all the bishops combined over the past 40 years. With great honor we present today the Tower of Trent Trophy to Mel Gibson
  • Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey weighs in on something every person should consider, especially if they were born Catholic. This is pertinent as he points out what Catholics should do over the death of our 40th President of the United States: Pray for his soul. So many are saying Ronald Reagan was a man of faith, but he practiced Presbyterianism. Did he, in his last days, return to the Faith into which he was born? That is something we must pray for as Tom shares the Catholic truth of death in his column Pray for the dead


    As a bonus column, Tom provides an ideal compendium which every Traditional Catholic should print out and share with a Novus Ordinarian Catholic for in his succinct list in addressing the inconsistencies of Cardinal Dario Castrillon Hoyos, Tom points out quite clearly that Modernism and Traditionalism cannot co-exist. Which is it? The Traditional Catholic truth from Peter through Pius XII or the conciliar religion of the last 40 years? The answer is a no-brainer to people with common sense - those who know their Catholicism. Tom sums up the logic in his excellent column Roman Myopia
    Symphony of Suffering
    Cyndi shares with the reader our need to raise funds in order to continue to function. She relates the family's experience over Memorial Day and why we had to prematurely put The Daily Catholic on hiatus mode before we start our annual Summer Hiatus issues. She expresses what her editor husband has a difficult time putting into words that we truly need the help of all and the best way to do it is to inaugurate for the first time ever a Fund Drive that we all hope everyone will contribute to just a bit in order to raise the necessary funds to continue our mission and not have to depend just on those loyal few who always give. She details our family trials in our struggle to raise good, healthy sons who will do Our Lord and Our Lady proud. With her own health so brittle, it is indeed added stress on her and by sharing it with our readers that is an outlet for her as she points to what Jesus says in Matthew 25: 20 in the title of her column Remember the least of His brethren

    Day

    The Thirty-ninth Day of a 40-Day Period of Prayer and Fasting
    They that continue in their evil ways shall be punished
    "Then they that feared the Lord, spoke every one with his neighbor: and the Lord gave ear, and heard it: and a book of remembrance was written before him for that fear the Lord, and think on His name. And they shall be My special possession, saith the Lord of hosts, in the day that I do judgment: and I will spare them as a man spareth his son that serveth him. And you shall return, and shall see the difference between the just and the wicked; and between him that serveth God, and him that serveth Him not. For behold the day shall come, kindled as a furnace: and all the proud, and all that do wickedly shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall set them on fire, saith the Lord of hosts, it shall not leave them root, nor branch."
    The Prophecy of Malachias 3: 16-18; 4: 1

    The Fortieth Day of a 40-Day Period of Prayer and Fasting
    The judgment of the wicked, and reward of the just. An exhortation to observe the law. Elias shall come for the conversion of the Jews.
    "But unto you that fear My name, the sun of justice shall arise, and health in his wings: and you shall go forth, and shall leap like calves of the herd. And you shall tread down the wicked, when they shall be ashes under the sole of your feet in the day, that I do this saith the Lord of hosts. Remember the law of Moses, My servant, which I commanded him in Horeb, for all Israel, the precepts and judgments. Behold, I will send you Elias, the prophet, before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers: lest I come, and strike the earth with anathema."
    The Prophecy of Malachias 4: 2-6

    'The Passion of The Christ' to be released on Video and DVD AUGUST 31st! Twentieth Century Fox, which originally passed on the rights to distribute Mel Gibson's masterpiece have decided they better not pass on a sure bet the second time around and thus have announced they will be releasing on video and DVD Mel's masterful film on the Tuesday just before the Labor Day Weekend. Gibson's own film company Icon Productions released the news in a news release Monday. It is expected that over half the people who saw it in theaters will purchase the video or DVD to own and to have as meditation and inspiration, especially for next Lent and Holy Week. It also coincides with the news that the mystic Sister Anne Catherine Emmerich has been slated for beatification in the fall. It was her book as the result of her private revelation from our Lord The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ which inspired Mel to do the film.

    When it comes to all these ungodly laws being passed by liberal judges because of the lobbying and intimidation of a small minority out to do away with the natural and supernatural order, it is wise to keep in mind the following:

    "Unjust laws are, properly speaking, NO LAWS!"
    His Eminence Saint Robert Bellarmine, Doctor of the Church
    We Must Resist This! Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey has just released a startling news article that makes it imperative to prepare our sons and daughters and to put on the Armor of God for the denials of the draft are a smokescreen. It's a reality of the New World Order and few there are who will escape this Masonic plot. Tom shows how so cleverly they have concealed it until the citizens are so dumbed down they'll go for anything. Our Lady warned at Fatima of this very thing.
    Bush Brought a Gift for the Pope: The Alliance Between Catholics and Evangelicals In a news piece from Chiesa.com we can more readily see how the Great Facade is using more smoke and mirrors to fool so many as the One World Religion continues to take hold with the Protestants proud of the way Catholics act today. Why not? They're no longer Catholic but practicing the very same apostate beliefs that caused the Protestant Reformation and the spill-off of thousands of sects away from the True Church. Read it and weep.

  • The Last American Hero has left us With the death of former President Ronald Wilson Reagan on Saturday, June 5, an era dies with him for he is the last of the great American heroes who was the secular leader of the conservative movement in the United States. The legacy he leaves will be hard to follow for those following because so many have compromised the values and principles he fiercely defended. We are not here to canonize the man, but to honor him for his work in public service first as Governor of California and then 40th Chief Executive of these United States. All who remember his era are sadder today - for the Gipper is gone.
  • UNFPA uses Catholics to advance agenda Austin Ruse, President of Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute exposes an insidious agenda of the UN in how they have manipulated gullible clergy to undermine the hierarchy of the Church and Catholic doctrine on sexuality.
  • graphic from AOL USA TodayChurchgoing Closely Tied to Voting Patterns Who wins in November may well be decided by the Christian vote as religion begins to build as an issue that cannot be denied. The campaign against Kerry's stand on abortion and sodomy is coming to the surface as the campaign heats up toward the summer months.
  • Is Liberal Rome ready to put the kibosh on bishops who would deny persistent sinners communion? That possibility exists with the announcement that Cardinal Ratzinger has fired a warning shot across the bow not to be too hasty about withholding communion. Evidently the Democratic Party has infiltrated the Vatican itself as Catholics in America grow more confused over the lack of enforcing Catholic doctrine universally, especially in the United States.
  • God help Terri Schiavo as her Legal Battle Heads to Florida Supreme Court Once again liberal judges are destined to sit in judgment of an innocent human life and the outlook does not look good for pro-lifers in the face of the euthanasia agenda of Michael Schiavo's attorney. Over the objections of Florida Governor Jeb Bush, a Florida state appeals court has sent the lawsuit over Terri's Law to the state's highest court. The Florida Supreme Court will hear the case filed by Terri Schiavo's estranged husband seeking to overturn a law Bush signed that saved her life. Attorneys for the governor say they want the case halted while the issue of whether Michael should have the authority to speak for Terri is resolved.
  • Communion Confrontation as Sodomites get bold and bishops don't even flinch! While Cardinal Francis George toed the line in Chicago on refusing communion to sodomites or sodomite sympathizers wearing the rainbow sash, in the Twin Cities Bishop Harry Flynn continues to ignore Church doctrine and not prevent his priests from withholding communion. It was left to a group of lay men - "Ushers of the Eucharist" who tried to defend against the insanity. In LA Mahony is all for the rainbow movement. Who is surprised at what this apostate prelate will do anymore?
  • More scuttlebutt from the cads posing as cardinals, this time from Baltimore! IF it is not the business of bishops to choose who receives Communion, as Cardinal William Keeler claims, then why even have bishops!??? Such disregard for shepherding their flocks under the cloak of staying under politics is a travesty before the Triune Divinity. It's time to stand up and tell these bishops: If you cannot be loyal to Catholic doctrine, GET OUT! Millions of souls are in jeopardy because of these spineless charlatans in miters! Keeler's closet is full and he doesn't want anyone looking in so he's straddling the Democratic platform line. This isn't about politics, it is about SALVATION!
  • Travesty is Rewarded! Where will it end?!! Cardinal Law, who resigned in disgrace, is granted the prestigious titular position of St. Mary Major in Rome! That is a scandal in and of itself and is a slap in the face- not only of the Patron Saint of Rome St. Philip Neri on whose feast the appointment was released - but an insult to the most pure Blessed Virgin Mary and the major Basilica in her honor, not to mention Catholics everywhere to whom the message is being sent that the Pope does NOT take the terrible sex abuse scandal and COVER-UP seriously!!! That is evident by the very fact it was John Paul II who APPROVED the appointment of the offending prelate as archpriest of the Basilica? The message the pope is sending is for the bishops not to worry, they'll always be safe no matter how much they've offended God as long as JPII is in charge while millions of souls are lost! So while 67 churches are being closed in Boston, thanks largely to Law's mismanagement and cover-up, he is rewarded for his sins and incompetence. Ah, ain't the 'Civilization of Love' great!?! There is no truth to the rumor that other disgraced prelates Rembert Weakland and Thomas O'Brien are next in line for appointments to be archpriests of the privies in St. Peter's but that's where they should be! In fact the New Order should be flushed down the toilet for that's where it belongs. It has become such a scandalous joke that even Novus Ordinarians have to see by now all is fruitless in following the false religion of Vatican II! It is an utter, scandalous disaster far worse than any disaster portrayed in the controversial movie breaking Friday in theaters - 'The Day After Tomorrow' The devastation of Vatican II and the New Order have been much more violent to souls for the casualties have been calamitous as in forever!!
  • The Archbishop of Boston cares little for the devotion to Tradition as church with Latin Mass among those to get the axe. O'Malley to close 65 churches. More of the barren fruits of Vatican II and the shameful scandal that will bring the dioceses to their knees for Our Lord has affirmed in Matthew 7: 15-20 that a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. It is barren and bound for the eternal fire. This includes indult churches for to place oneself under bondage of these Masonic modernist miters is to sell out the Faith. The picture to the left is definitely a Latin Mass. How can one tell? How many times do you see mantillas in a Novus Ordo? How many even dress up any more? Ah, yes, the bitter dividends of the New Order as shepherds turn into real estate agents to pay off their dirty little secrets.
  • An Introduction to the “Sexual Underworld” within the Church On the heels of the revelation by Atila Sinke Guimaraes in his book Vatican II, Homosexuality, and Pedophilia, Stephen Brady of Roman Catholic Faithful continues to investigate the charlatan Masonic marauders of mammon in miters as he exposes the dark underbelly of the sodomite agenda within the American hierarchy, especially in Joliet, Albany and Rochester just to name a few of the pits of sin in the chanceries of this nation.
  • Confirmation of Hindus worshipping at Fatima Shrine The Portugal News provides evidence that syncretism has already begun at Fatima, reporting that, "Arriving in Fátima the pilgrims made their way to the Chapel of the Apparitions, where from the altar a Hindu priest led prayer sessions. Their God is not the Holy Trinity but pagan gods such as the goddess Devi. More blasphemy in God's holy place and a sure slap against our Blessed Mother. A commentary on the service was given by the TV reporter who explained: “This is an unprecedented unique moment in the history of the shrine. The Hindu priest, or Sha Tri, prays on the altar the Shaniti Pa, the prayer for peace.” The Hindus can be seen removing their shoes before approaching the altar rail of the chapel as the priest chants prayers from the altar’s sanctuary."
  • Congress introduces bill that would mandate pro-abort doctors to alert women of the pain the fetus feels Will the "FEEL THE PAIN" bill pass or be passed over by the pain-killing Dems who won't admit they are accomplices to the pain felt by unborn child through such a gruesome, murderous act as abortion!
  • Satan's minions on Capitol Hill retaliate as 48 pro-abort 'Catholic' pols try to intimidate bishops into backing down Threats of increasing anti-Catholic sentiments only a charade to hide their real agenda: don't disturb the Democratic Party's comfort zone! Bishop Sheridan's statement has shook up DC and this is no time to retreat despite threats of anti-Catholic bigotry. The truth is the bigotry is coming from the very pols signing the letter to the bishops in hopes they'll cave to Democratic demands! Yet weak-kneed Cardinal McCarrick has already indicated that's exactly what he'll do. Thank you, your Holiness, for such wonderful prelates as Cardinal McCarrick. NOT!!!
  • Terri Schiavo's Parents still being impeded from seeing their daughter Faithless husband manipulating law and liberal judges with one purpose in mind: do away with his wife so he can continue in his sinful comfort zone! Ah, the fifth commandment comes in so many colors these days!
  • Grand Rapid's Bishop Kevin Britt dead at 59. Died in his home Sunday morning. Cardinal Adam Maida exclaimed, "a good shepherd has been called home." Begging His Eminence's pardon, but were Britt a good shepherd he would have abided by the principles of Catholic truth and stopped the sacrilege of Buddhists promoting their false religion in his basilica. He would also not have denigrated a priest who strove to uphold Catholicism. May we all pray for this poor misguided Novus Ordinarian ordinary who now must answer to God for his failure to truly shepherd his flock. For more on the Buddhists see Ambushed by Grace
    Anima ejus, et animae omnium fidelium defunctorum per misericordiam Dei requiescant in pace. Amen.

    Have God and His Laws been abandoned? In Massachusetts it would seem so! It is a dark, dark day in Massachusetts and the rest of America as of Monday with sin being lauded and celebrated by the courts and flaunted by sinners! Shame for the sham! Shame on any Catholic who accepts the unlawful law approving sodomy.
  • Shameless seamless garment garbage being spewed by Cincinnati successor of Bernardin in appeasing sinners like Kerry But of course he's a darling of the non-Catholic National 'Catholic' Reporter publication which has officially endorsed sodomite unions! What is even sadder is that the Queen City prelate is still in denial while waiting for the results of a committee headed by the most weak-kneed of 'em all - Cardinal Theodore McCarrick. Lord, deliver us from such fools and charlatans!
  • 'Catholic' Colleges With Pro-Abortion Commencement Speakers Draw Fire Where is the outrage? While these Modernist bishops will pounce and denigrate Traditional Catholics, they turn a deaf ear and blind eye to the obvious persistent sinners who are being invited. Shame on the shepherds and Rectors.
  • What blackmail do Kerry, Kennedy and the Democratic Party have on Archbishop Sean O'Malley that he would sell out the Faith? Apostate Boston prelate betrays Christ with remarks of tolerance for sin that encourage satan's minions on the sodomite issue and passify sinners to the shock of faithful Catholics.
  • U.S. Supreme Court plays Pilate, washes hands of Sodomite agenda in Massachusetts. So much for being 'supreme'!
  • While tolerance is being preached that Islam is a religion of peace, 600 Christians slaughtered mercilessly by infidels
  • Mizzou voters will have chance to vote against sodomite unions State legislature overwhelmingly puts in on ballot to prevent courts from intervening
  • At last, a bishop who holds the voters accountable as well! Colorado Springs' Bishop Michael Sheridan surprises flocks by standing up for Church doctrine. He will refuse communion to any who knowingly vote for a pro-abort candidate! Now where are the rest of the bishops? It's time for them to follow suit and stop the devil in his tracks. If the bishops can't lead like Bishop Sheridan, then get out of the way because they're only harming souls by their silence and stalling. We need more Bishop Sheridans. He might even truly see the light and recognize the Latin Mass of All Ages has never been abrogated. We can always hope and pray. For a PDF of his letter, see Pastoral Letter to Catholics in Colorado Springs
  • New York Pro-Life Congressman takes aim at Vatican hypocrisy
  • Father Daniel says goodbye with a packed church for the Latin Mass at St. Mary by the Sea The last hurrah for Fr. Johnson and the Traditional Latin Mass as Tod Brown's wreckovators move in with the indult insult, leaving many Southern Californian faithful in the lurch. Thank God for Our Lady Help of Christians in Garden Grove. They may have to build a bigger church to accommodate the growing numbers. Interesting, is it not, that only the Traditional Chapels are the ones growing?
  • New Jersey Dem chooses mammon over Christ and His church over abortion flap. Will others walk away? To those who do: good riddance, but please do read Luke 16: 9-13.
  • Kerry beams after committing scandal and sacrilege in Pittsburgh Where is Bishop Donald Wuerl? Why's he smiling when an outrage was just committed in his Diocese for all the world (and God!) to see? Why's he conveniently out of the loop when he knows very well Kerry attends St. Scholastica when in the steel city? It's time for Wuerl to take accountability along with every other Bishop before God and the flocks as we've been saying for 4 years with our HEROD'S HEROES!
  • At least one pro-abort respects his faith and bishop enough not to scandalize as NJ's Gov. McGreevey agrees to refrain from communion
  • Proselytism, schism, and confusion at heart of cold war between Vatican and Russia. Solution: Consecrate Russia to Mary's Immaculate Heart as she asked 87 years ago!
  • Progressive apostate organizations and over half the priests surveyed in Cincinnati say celibacy a stumbling block. Well, duh, so is sodomy and embracing the world, the flesh and the devil! Sounds like some in the Queen City want more 'queens.'
  • The Bishops would like everyone to forget the abuses while they continue to cover up their own culpability. Abused seminarians won't let them get away with it.
  • ALL targets comfort zone of Cardinal McCarrick in calling him to task with full page ad! Do you think that will get his attention? Shaming these sorry prelates seems, sadly, to be the only answer!
  • Want to see where the church of Vatican II is heading? Take a gander at the Episcopal church!
  • More of the barren fruits of Vatican II in Bean Town: Parish the thought!
  • Circuit Judge plays God once more, yet again Terri Schiavo denied rights to live
  • Altoona-Johnstown's Adamec dealt setback as Judge insists lawsuits against diocese continue!
  • Mysterious European Consortium wants Mad Max for Mouse House! Translation: Mel Gibson to replace Eisner at Disney but only if Mel ponies up a couple hundred mil. Memo to Mel: Do you really want that headache?
  • Archbishop O'Malley finally defrocks Paul Shanley. It's been long overdue!
  • In Ad limina visits to Rome, Pope urges Michigan and Ohio prelates to better educate seminarians. Uh, yeah, isn't that a given? Guess not from the bitter fruits of the past 40 years!
  • Sodomite priests rebelling in Phoenix. Saying non serviam to Bishop Olmsted's mandate to remove names from pro-sodomite statement.
  • More 'fruits' of Kasper's moratorium on proselytizing the Faith: Let the Orthodox convert Catholics. It's happening down under!
  • Papal Nuncio to Spain in open heresy by accepting Sodomites

    Few scholars have the thorough acumen to trace and document the why, what, when, where, how and who as Atila has done in his marvelous Eli, Eli, Lamma Sabacthani? collection which, book by book, exposes the the massive, murky mess that has been created as a result of the Vatican II agenda. His latest book above Vatican II, Homosexuality and Pedophilia is key to understanding the purpose and rationale of those who would twist the Sacred Deposit of the Faith to accommodate sin and who must be exposed and eradicated for the welfare of Holy Mother Church. It is a must read in order to alert all to how deep the rot goes and why the scandal in America was really only the tip of the iceberg. We encourage you also to read Gary Morella's review of Vatican II, Homosexuality and Pedophilia.

    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

    Tower of Trent Tribute
    Resuming our Tower of Trent Tributes, we honor three outstanding lay leaders who have made such an impact on the Traditional movement and for Holy Mother Church. Going alphabetically, the first honored was Michael Davies the prolific British writer whose writings are well-known worldwide and who, as head of Una Voce for eight years, served as the unofficial adjutor between the cause of the Latin Mass and modern Rome. He has literally written thousands of articles on the Faith and the liturgical consequences that he is regarded by many as the foremost liturgical lay expert in the English-speaking world. In addition he has served as the willing guide for 15 years for the Chartres Pilgrimages each Pentecost. Now his health is waning but he continues to write as he is able and we offer our prayers for him and thank God for his writings that have better enabled confused Catholics to more clearly see the subterfuge that has undermined Holy Mother Church. Thus, as chosen by the readers, we presented the Tower of Trent Trophy to Michael Davies
    "Qui legit, intelligat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Trinity Sunday, Father served up a veritable banquet of hope and encouragement of how prayer is so important and so simple as he shares Christ's Own words and those of St. Paul as well as the renowned Doctor St. Augustine. Father pointed out that too often humans try to complicate life and their spiritual life as well and Our Lord made it so simple, so clear. It is not a gray area or ambiguous territory, but simple black and white. There is good and there is evil. Those choosing good and following Christ's commands and striving to do the Triune Divinity's Will, shall be rewarded with everlasting life. Those choosing through their own free will to deny Christ or do their own thing have chosen to follow another who is not God. Therefore they will reap the rewards of their fruits: everlasting hell-fire. Yet, as Father lamented, the leaders of modern Rome can't seem to recognize that simple logic of His Holy Church and thus have made the path to salvation all the more difficult. Prayer and obedience to God are the only answer to staying on the straight and narrow as he pointed out in his sermon Prayer and the Holy Trinity

    Friday - May 28:
    Friday we completed our clergy presentations of the Tower of Trent Trophy by enshrining Bishop Richard Williamson into the Hall of Honor. Since his consecration to the episcopacy in June 1988, he has been a gardener of the harvest in forming holy priests as rector of the Society of St. Pius X Seminaries in America and South America. He has covered the western hemisphere in fashioning priests for our Lord's vineyard. Richard Williamson was born into an Anglican family in England on March 8, 1940. Though he did not realize it at the time, he was born literally in the shadow of the feast of angelic Doctor Saint Thomas Aquinas on March 7, a saint who would come to play such an important role in his life. Converted to True Catholicism, he became a priest of the Society of St. Pius X and created bishop along with three other men dedicated to serving God in June 1988. As we have seen since, the resolve of this bishop has strengthened, manifested in his commitment to the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church. Thus we completed our tribute to the clergy by enshrining His Excellency in the Tower of Trent Hall of Honor and presenting the Tower of Trent Trophy to Bishop Richard Williamson
    Shears and Tears of a Lamb
    Catharine Lamb registered probably her most compelling, significant column to date as she addressed the Novus Ordo priests in pleading with them to awake from the terrible 40-year slumber that has so mesmerized them into a stupor. In the humble fashion of another Catharine - Saint Catharine of Siena - this Catharine entreated the priests to realize and educate their flocks that Holy Mass does not entail opening your mouths, but your hearts. Only when the priests open their hearts to the Truths that no pope had the authority to change the Immemorial Mass, canonized by the infallible decree of Trent and codified by Pope St. Pius V, will order be restored to their parishes! She points out that one cannot wallow in the mud without getting dirty! Expressing the thoroughness of a good housekeeper, Catharine advised that the only way to clean things up and for priests to cleanse themselves with the only cleaning agent that gets souls totally cleansed - the Sacramental divinely ordained Traditional Latin Mass! She illustrated the bitter, barren fruits of the "new springtime" and called on the priests first and foremost to say "NO!" to the NO! She laid it out so beautifully in her column Escape From the Absurd!

    Thursday - May 27:
    Tower of Trent Tribute
    Thursday we presented the Tower of Trent Trophy to Father James F. Wathen, the relentless and mighty missionary of Truth and Tradition who has logged millions of miles over the last thirty years bringing the Sacraments to Traditional Catholics throughout the United States. For Father James, have the True Mass, will travel. While even to this day he remains a simple Traditional priest, he has never been one to withhold his opinions and facts and it is his books which will be his legacy for future Catholic generations who will see the wisdom of his words. His most famous book is, of course, The Great Sacrilege, which in 2001 Father graciously gave us permission to publish on The Daily Catholic. The fact is that in over thirty years NO ONE HAS BEEN ABLE TO REFUTE his words for they hold up and are in harmony with the perennial, infallible Magisterium of the Church. It is a book we strongly recommend every Catholic read. In these days when he continues the good fight including trying to beat cancer, it is our honor to enshrine Father into the Tower of Trent Hall of Honor and present the Tower of Trent Trophy to Father James F.

    Father Lawrence Smith contributed some reflective thoughts for the Octave of the Ascension in sharing the attributes of many of the saints who surrounded Our Lord while He was on this earth including the Holy Family, St. Mary Magdalen, Sts. Mary and Martha, and even St. Dismas. It is their example in blazing the path to Heaven that provides for the faithful guide signs to help us on our journey. It is what spurred the Little Flower of the Child Jesus on despite her frailties and what should motivate us to focus only on that which gives grace for though Christ gave us His Spirit of Truth as the blueprint for joining Him in everlasting glory after His Ascension, He also gave us these saints to help us better understand, apply and fortify the spiritual architecture of our souls in order to clothe us fully in the garment of grace to be more worthy of following Him and His saints into Heaven. Father Lawrence focused on the attributes of four saints in particular beginning with the most recent St. Therese of Lisieux and then in order, St. Mary Magdalene, St. Joseph and, saving the best for last, the Blessed Mother of God - Gate of Heaven as Father crowned the Octave of the Ascension with his reflective article Following Our Lord and His Saints into Heaven

    Wednesday - May 26:
    Tower of Trent Tribute
    Wednesday we presented, in alphabetical order, the Tower of Trent Trophy to Father Nicholas Gruner, the indefatigable defender of and crusader for Our Lady of Fatima. There probably is not a more famous priest today, known in both Traditional and Novus Ordo circles and regarded in a far different light in the latter for the vast majority of Novus Ordinarians have been dumbed down and duped into thinking Father Gruner is to blame where, in truth he has the cure for world peace. It is not found in the military operations in Iraq or in the boardrooms or in the U.N. chambers or NATO or any manmade operation. It is not found in the words of the Pope, but rather in the simple words of the most pure human who ever walked this earth - the Blessed Mother of God who told the children at Fatima to have the Pope consecrate, in union with all the bishops of the world, her Immaculate Heart specifically to Russia. If the Pope did this, peace was guaranteed for Russia would be converted. If not, then Russia's errors would spread worldwide. There is no question they have and Father remains one of the lonely firm voices crying in the void: Listen to your Mother! Other than millions who have pledged their Rosaries, the powers that be have not only ignored his plea, but sought to silence him. For his undaunting courage in the face of persecution it is our honor to enshrine Father into the Tower of Trent Hall of Honor and present the Tower of Trent Trophy to Father Nicholas Gruner
    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica responded on the hemming and hawing that has been going on over the recent volley launched by the 48 pro-abort Democrats who are publicly intimidating the bishops. Their logic defies the sensus Catholicus and any prelate who doesn't agree has already long ago abandoned the True Faith and signed on to the open apostasy of the American church which could care less about doctrine or souls, only the temporal favors and status, even power, they will gain if they wash their hands of the controversy by twisting the truth by posing the canard that the 'sacraments cannot be used as a weapon' in stalling off those who are demanding the bishops stand up for Christ. Sadly few will, and even fewer will stand up for His Holy Church and Faith practiced and preserved from Peter through Pius XII. Gabriel equates the two camps to the two camps that day in the Roman Courtyard when Christ stood bloodied before a bloodthirsty mob and Pilate washed his hands of responsibility out of cowardice and selfishness in sacrificing an innocent man to the angry mob's hate. So also today those who do not stand for the uncompromising principles and truths of Our Lord, stand with Pilate and the mob calling anew "Crucify Him! Crucify Him!" They are cold-hearted toward the execution of millions of innocent unborns, but cry foul when the immoral behavior of Americans which they enabled, is brought to light for the world to see the uglier side of America. Gabriel pointed out that the line in the sand has been drawn and there is no straddling that line. It's either we are with Christ all the way or we are against him as he emphasized in his column Pilate's Disciples
    Deprogramming Diabolical Disorientation
    In an article just released by The Remnant, Dr. Thomas Woods fleshed out the pits of the fleshpot that started it all - Hugh Hefner and his infamous Playboy empire. Tom wrote on why, having just celebrated its 50th anniversary (yes, it has been that long!) at the end of last year, it is in dire trouble for the beasts have devoured their own through their lustful ways in discarding the moral virtues and God's laws in order to give in to the world, the flesh and the devil. Because of the attrition rate due to the promotion of contraceptives and abortions, the great Playboy empire will be lucky to see its 60th anniversary. Christ says very clearly, "No man can serve two masters." Those choosing mammon are at the mercy of the beasts as Dr. Woods pointed out in his poignant article in which he entreated young men to say "no more" and commit to restoring moral values in his piece Beasts and Men

    Tuesday - May 25:
    Today we present, in alphabetical order, the Tower of Trent Trophy to Bishop Bernard Fellay, who was not only one of the four famous priests consecrated to the Episcopacy that prompted the meaningless Ecclesia Dei canard, but also one of the youngest bishops ever at only 30 years old. He was elected Superior General of the Society of Saint Pius X in 1994 and remained so for the past 10 years. Headquartered in Menzingen, Switzerland he's been responsible for overseeing the expansion of the SSPX worldwide in following the charge of the man who both ordained and consecrated him Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre. While we have done extensive research in trying to find biographical information on His Excellency, we have unfortunately come up dry other than the basics. Therefore we shall share some of the highlights of the Society during his formative years and finish up with his latest declaration which assures he will hold fast to Tradition. One thing for sure: God knows what counts and we will count on that to enshrine His Grace into the Tower of Trent Hall of Honor and present the Tower of Trent Trophy to Bishop Bernard Fellay
    Hope on the Horizon
    Why is it Catholics won't defend their doctrines? That is a good question but it's left to a person who is Jewish - Ben Shapiro - to tell Catholics and especially the bishops that "Without a set of beliefs that guide behavior, religion means nothing. These Catholic politicians are essentially asking that the Church debase itself so that they can get re-elected on a platform contradictory to Catholicism. They are asking the Church to discard its right of free speech and to subvert its own values for sake of personal political gain." As Traditional Catholics know, many bishops have already debased themselves and the name of the Church for the favor of mammon. Though we have long known the USCCB and the majority of the Masonic prelates in the U.S. are in the Democratic Party's back pocket, now the Mule Party is boldly coming out publicly in giving the bishops their marching orders. We agree with Shapiro that only those who stand and fight will survive as we present his article from Sunday's Townhall column Democrats to bishops: Shut up!

    Monday - May 24:
    Tower of Trent Tribute
    Monday we began presenting the Tower of Trent Trophy to those the majority of voters chose among the living - those who carry on the good fight in keeping the Faith and preserving the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church. There are eight and we've broken it down by honoring first those members of the clergy and then the last three will be the three outstanding lay honorees. In beginning with the clergy alphabetically it was no coincidence that we honored first Father Gommar A. De Pauw, a Belgian-born priest who has been a priest for 62 years and still going strong for the years have been good to him as God has preserved his noble general of Tradition. Father has seen action on the front line of the wars - the Second World War where he was a medic and then later a Chaplain, and later at Vatican II where he was a personal expert and "procurator" and saw first hand how the Rhine was indeed flowing into the Tiber for the subterfuge wrought from that 21st Council would so throw Holy Mother Church into a terrible malaise over the next 40 years. While Father was cooperative in many things, he would never say the Novus Ordo and, indeed was the first priest to establish the Catholic Traditionalist Movement before Vatican II had even come to completion. Before Cardinal Ottaviani ever penned his Intervention, before Archbishop Lefebvre ever established the Society, Fr. De Pauw began the preservation of the Faith with the CTM (Catholic Traditionist Movement). Thus for his long service for Our Lord and Our Lady, we proudly presented the Tower of Trent Trophy to Father Gommar A. De Pauw
    Christ or chaos
    Dr. Droleskey weighed in with a "Double Dose of Droleskey" as we presented two articles. One dealt with what the problems really are and where they can be fixed: at the top as he called the Holy Father to task for his rejection of the Social Kingship of Christ and for his selling out the True Faith through ecumenism in which the pope claims the God Who Catholics worship is the same One the Muslims worship. How can that be? It cannot and Tom shared the sad facts that this pontiff needs to awake to the terrible malaise he has allowed the Church to sink and right the ship before it is too late. It should give those who think this pope is a good pope or doesn't know what is going on a chance to rethink such irrationalization considering the facts as Tom pointed out in his column More Than a Matter of Governance

    As part of the double header, if you will, we brought you a bonus column in which Tom went right after the Fatima issue we broke a few days ago from the Portugal News, and the pope's indifferentism to Our Lady's mission which through Tom's syllogisms shows a vast gulf between what was Catholic and what passes as 'Catholic' today. Tom took no prisoners in blaming the pope for the scandalous actions and inactions of his bishops, specifically Bishop Seraphim Ferreira e Silva of Fatima who is no Fr. Michael McMahon as Dr. Droleskey pointed out in Indifferentism's Rotten Fruit

    SUNDAY - May 23:
    Tower of Trent Tribute
    Sunday we completed our presentation of the Crimson Cross - the posthumous arena for 7 of the 15 charter recipients of the Tower of Trent Trophy. Our seventh recipient listed alphabetically was a priest who toed the line of the Vatican II changes until he'd had enough when he realized in 1977 that those to whom he must be obedient were not being obedient to the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church, and therefore being disobedient to God. Realizing the path had just grown narrower, he resisted the unlawful command of his bishop to give communion in the hand and stood up to the apostate bishops against such a sacrilege. Rather than fleeing the land, he dug in and, in his indomitable Texan-style reminiscent of John Wayne, set about to revive the Old Faith in the Los Angeles area for the next 25 years. Through his efforts he established a school in Garden Grove which is thriving today and one of the few places in the largest diocese in the U.S. where there is a daily Traditional Mass. The fruits of his work grow stronger every day. He died at the age of 87 on Our Lady's Saturday on September 28, 2002, having harvested a heritage of good fruits during the last 25 years of his noble priesthood laboring for God's lambs. We were proud to present posthumously to this no-nonsense Texan of Tradition the Crimson Cross award and Tower of Trent Trophy to Father Frederick Schell, S.J.
    "Qui legit, intelligat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Sunday Within the Octave of the Ascension of Our Lord, he emphasized the need for prayer. Just as Jesus promised He would send His Spirit after He ascended and the Apostles were told to wait and pray, so also in this time when Christ's True Church has seemingly become an orphan, we can take hope in knowing that Christ will never abandon us. But we must do our part for as the Word of God affirms these things are written on our hearts. In other words it is instinctive, but the devil does all he can to blot this out with distractions that prompt us - due to our human nature from the effects of Original Sin - to lower our guard and give in to temptation. That is why the only antidote is prayer and entreating the Holy Ghost to imbue us with the fruits of the Sanctifier to strengthen us in our resolve to fend off the world, the flesh and the devil. Father pointed out that the New Order does not help, cannot because it is not divinely ordered. He wrote, "What happens to the individual Christian who is not 'prudent and watchful in prayers' happens on a grand scale to the whole of society. Without Christ the King and a solid foundation in Christian principles, the nations are on the road to perdition, quickly sliding to their doom." This is what is happening and yet, we know in our hearts that the only means of spiritual survival is to return to the divinely ordained tried and true in order to survive the wiles of the devil. It is Written in the Hearts of Men
    Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi
    Kevin Tierney reflected Sunday on some stark omissions in the Novus Ordo readings which are purposely left out in order to deny that while God is loving and merciful, He is equally just and rightfully vengeful. The omissions point out the obvious denial by the New Order of the existence of hell and the fact many go there who do not heed God's holy will. Kevin points out that while those subscribing to the Novus Ordo may "talk the talk" they can never "walk the walk" because they have eliminated part of the Word in order to remain in their comfort zone and be in harmony with the humanistic Protestant concept that all are saved who just say "Jesus saves." Catholic truth proves otherwise, for there is much more Our Lord asks of His children and Kevin showed how we apply what we pray only in the Traditional Rite of the Immemorial Mass. Kevin illustrated this quite clearly in his comparison of Propers of the Sunday Within the Octave of the Ascension of Our Lord in the Traditional Rite with the Novus Ordo Seventh Sunday of Easter in Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi

    Saturday - May 22:
    On Saturday we honored the sixth of the seven listed alphabetically posthumously. He was a priest whom the esteemed Dr. Dietrich von Hildebrand, a fellow recipient of the Tower of Trent Trophy this past Tuesday, called a fearless defender of the Faith - Fidei Defensor. He was born into a large Italian immigrant family in New York City in 1915 and growing up knew little of the gods of atheism or the Antichrist but his experiences and schooling would prepare him well to warn others of the terrible curse that visited this nation during the last half of the twentieth century and now threatens to explode early in the twenty-first century. Were it not for his deep abiding Faith and love for Christ, he could easily have gone the way of apostasy and liberal theology as so many of his fellow Jesuits did. Indeed God protected His faithful servant from the ravages of heresy and schism even though he had been exposed to these terrors in Rome and state-side. Because he knew his Faith, he was able to identify the problems and was chosen to alert others of the evils that were determined to wipe out Catholicism world-wide. He is best remembered for three books that should be required reading in every home: Gods of Atheism', 'The Roots of Violence', and Antichrist'. He succumbed to cancer shortly after the last book came out and yet, through his work he will be remembered as we honored this Fearless Fidei Defensor today with the Tower of Trent Trophy to Father Vincent P. Miceli, S.J.
    Gabriel Garnica addressed in his column the total illogical reasoning of the relativist who make no sense with their illogical rubbish such as "I am pro-choice, but not pro-abortion," or "I am all for the homosexuals, but not for same sex marriage." Recently this same crazy logic has been applied by pro-abort pro-sodomite 'Catholic' politicians in lashing out at the few bishops who have decided to uphold Catholic doctrine and adhere to the Apostle Paul's infallible words in 1 Corinthians 11: 27, "Wherefore, whoseover shall eat this bread, or drink the chalice of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Lord." Gabriel pointed out that the reason these excuses are even allowed is because those who should be the guardians of the Faith are moral cowards and unreliable from the pope on down. Basically, as Garnica syllogized, one cannot count on cowards to come through when the chips are down. Political correctness, fashion and fads be damned, there is only one course to follow and that is the path that has been forged by the tried troopers of Truth and Tradition. To veer from that path is most dangerous and will be very, very harmful to one's spiritual health. All the foolish talk about the dangers of using 'communion as a weapon' are nothing but smokescreens to deflect the truth that few bishops are ready to be uncompromising and few politicians are ready to comply with true Catholic doctrine. While they gather up all the fool's gold they can, they pass the priceless treasures of real gold at their fingertips. Sad and tragic, especially when it comes time for accounting for their worth. Gabriel explained in his column The Devil's Dilemna!

    Friday - May 21:
    Tower of Trent Tribute
    Continuing in our presentation of the Crimson Cross in the posthumous arena we honored on Friday the son of German immigrants, Walter L. Matt who came from a long line of Catholic lay journalists. His grandfather launched the German-language Wanderer, and his father, Joseph Matt, a Papal Knight of St. Gregory (K.S.G.), founded the English-language Wanderer -- still the oldest Catholic weekly newspaper in the United States. Walter Matt was an editor of The Wanderer for some thirty years before he founded The Remnant in 1967 of which he was the editor/publisher for some twenty-five more years. Over his long, fifty-some years in the Catholic press apostolate, he wrote countless studies on countless different topics, concerning both the Catholic Church and the secular State. He was a highly decorated veteran of World War II and was still active in the fight to restore the traditions of the Catholic Church until his death in 2002 at 87 years of age where he passed away in the odor of sanctity at St. Joseph's Hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota on April 21st, the 8th day within the Octave of the Solemnity of St. Joseph. Walter Matt is generally regarded as one of the pioneer founders of the Traditional Catholic Movement in the United States. And so, in respect to his accomplishments and the example he set in word and action, we take great delight in presenting to this trailblazer of Truth and Tradition, the Tower of Trent Trophy to Sir Walter L. Matt
    A Chronicle of Catholic Tradition
    In the eighteenth installment of our on-going mega-series on "A Chronicle of Catholic Tradition" in chronicling the history of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and Holy Mother Church, we arrive at the 5th century. It was a time of moral depravity corroding the Roman Empire quite similar to the breakdown of the moral fabric in the United States today when anything goes. In addition the Arian heresy had taken a great toll and that had given rise to more heresies just as we have today in the twenty-first century with the widespread acceptance of what Pope St. Pius X called the "synthesis of all heresies" - Modernism. From this bleak horizon God rose up two stalwart heroes to defy the odds and reassert the Church's growing influence on all of Christendom. One was a determined bishop who forsook riches to follow his missionary spirit in bringing the True Faith to the pagan Emerald Isle conveying the Creed through the simple, natural beauty and clarity of God's green shamrock, so abundant in the land he converted. St. Patrick was his name and his feats are legendary. In Rome, a holy Pope was elected and strength returned to the papacy with the convocation of two major ecumenical councils and the heroic, courageous action of meeting the "scourge of God" Attila the Hun at the gates of Rome where, through Divine intervention, the barbarian turned back from sure sacking of the eternal city. Holiness rises out of the ashes of Depravity and Heresy

    Ascension Thursday-May 20:
    Tower of Trent Tribute
    We honored on Thursday the priest who authored several best-sellers, such as The Jesuits, Hostage to the Devil, The Vatican, The Keys of This Blood, The Final Conclave, and his final one Windswept House to name a few of his page-turning thrilling novels on the Church. Though he passed nearly five years ago, it took until now for his former Vicar General of the Jesuits to exonerate this man who was so maligned. The truth which we have always maintained is that Father Malachi Brendan Martin was indeed granted a full and legal dispensation from his Jesuit vows of obedience, but not from celibacy. He was given a perpetual celebret to celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in private. Finally his reputation has been restored as it should and we take great delight in presenting to this warrior of the word, this scribe of intrigue and inspiration Tower of Trent Trophy to Father Malachi Martin
    "Qui legit, intelligat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Ascension Thursday, he followed Our Lord's final command in Mark 16: 15-16 in going back to basics. Things have become too complicated over the past 40 years and one reason is to cover up the obvious subterfuge that conceals the true Faith, masqueraded as Catholicism today. In truth, what passes as 'Catholic' today is nothing but Protestantism for, as Father pointed, out the bishops who signed the documents of Vatican II placed themselves in schism for what they signed was condemned by holy pontiffs who foresaw the mortal cancer of Modernism. Father reminds us of St. Paul's words regarding the faithful's superiors "Consider how they ended their lives, and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday and today, yes, and forever." God does not change and neither does the means of salvation as Christ established in the salvific New Covenant. Yet if we are to believe the Modernists, the faith is ever evolving and changing. Anathema at its gravest and yet so few have a clue. Father entreated all to "Keep the Faith" which begins and ends with preserving the Immemorial Holy Sacrifice of Tradition. While the generals and most of the commanders have cowardly abandoned ship and so meekly waved the surrender flag to the enemy, it is left to the few who remain faithful to defend the ramparts at all costs! Father explained in The Truths of the Traditional Faith

    Wednesday - May 19:
    Tower of Trent Tribute
    Continuing in our presentation of the Crimson Cross - the posthumous arena for 7 of the 15 charter recipients of the Tower of Trent Trophy - we honored on Wednesday the third of the seven alphabetically. That is, of course the noble French Archbishop who stood fast by Tradition when seemingly all others abandoned the house of God. For his transgression of obeying God before man, he was greatly persecuted. In his honor we present today a tribute to the modern Apostle of Tradition, who, rather than caving under pressure by so many of his cohorts, stuck to his guns and was loyal to the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church as he walked his own Calvary in rejection and even illegal excommunication from the Church he so loved. Father Ramon Anglais, who provided the biography used for His Excellency, wrote "In the fluctuations of history God raises extraordinary men and women charged with a particular mission. Without them, the face of the world and the Church would not be the same today." The Great Facade of the Vatican II Revolution has managed to pollute the minds of so many Catholics as to the holiness of this man and the fact Archbishop Lefebvre was right in doing what he did for the welfare of Holy Mother Church. And so it was fitting that we honored posthumously and presented the Tower of Trent Trophy to Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre
    Traditional Insights
    Mario Derksen resumed his excellent analysis of Pope Pius XI's solid and absolute encyclical Mortalium animos. In light of all the bafflegab and ecumania streaming out of modern Rome, His Holiness Pope Pius XI's words ring truer than ever for he warned back in 1928 against the very insanity that has run wild over the past several decades and grows worse by the year, by the month, by the day. Mario provided the proof that ecumenism is not just a grave error, but an anathema which, in effect, is apostasy pure and simple for it denies the infallible truths that the Catholic Church is the only true Ark of Salvation. Mario showed how Pius affirmed the mandatory dogma of Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus, and how today the modernists deny it as he provided the third installment on An Analysis of the Encyclical Mortalium Animos and other true Catholic Teaching on Religious Unity with part three The Necessity to be Catholic

    Tuesday - May 18:
    Tower of Trent Tribute
    Continuing alphabetically with the 'H's, we honored and enshrined on Tuesday in the Tower of Trent Hall of Honor a man whom Pope Pius XII stated was the eminent philosopher of the 20th Century, and could truly be a Doctor of the Church for modern times were he canonized. Considering the factory of saints being churned out in modern times, that could be a possibility but let us not rush such exalted finality of honors for the man honored today would not subscribe to such instantaneous sanctity. He was a disciple of what Holy Mother Church taught for centuries and found in Her the truths, wisdom and logic he had sought. He was a man who spanned the trials and travails of the turbulent twentieth century from World War I through very harrowing times in World War II to the Revolution of the sixties and Vatican II. He warned post-conciliar popes of the grave error of following in this path and wrote two masterpieces The Devastated Vineyard and The Trojan Horse in the City of God in trying to warn the faithful of the folly followed by those committed to the reforms of Vatican II. He was a prolific writer who has left us many excellent works and is lionized in a biography by his second wife Dr. Alice von Hildebrand Soul of a Lion. We presented posthumously, the Tower of Trent Trophy to Dr. Dietrich von Hildebrand
    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica called to task those politicians and bishops who are truly "Frauds of the Faith." In this year when finally the public from the faithful to the secular media are watching the bishops carefully, especially on the whole pro-abortion and pro-sodomy agenda the true shepherds will shine if they stand by Catholic doctrine and do not wash their hands of their apostolic responsibility before God and their flocks. The bishops must pull the lever on the Frauds of the Faith posing as politicians who disregard the tenets of the Faith in favor of the favors of mammon. Gabriel calls the bishops and politicians to be Saint Thomas Beckets in turning their backs on treasures and rewards of this fleeting world for how we live in this world, what we choose, will determine where we spend eternity. Gabriel explained in his column Frauds of the Faith

    Monday - May 17:
    Tower of Trent Trophy
  • We kick off our tribute to the charter recipients of the Tower of Trent Hall of Honor with the first of fifteen so honored this year. Going alphabetically, we begin today by honoring and presenting the Tower of Trent Trophy posthumously to the man known as the "Lion of Campus" - Bishop Antonio de Castro Mayer. He was a wiry, small frail man whose courage was taller and fuller than the mighty rain forests of his beloved Brazil. The love in his veins for Jesus and His Blessed Mother and the one True Faith of Tradition stretched further and flowed freer than the Amazon tributaries of his land. His exclamation of the True Faith shone over his country as majestically as the towering statue of Christ high above Sao Paulo. This Lion of Brazil was the determined, loyal field marshal of the epic battle against Fideicide as he rallied and maintained the last Traditional Diocese in the world, all in a humble corner of South America. He was Dom Antonio de Castro Mayer, Bishop of Campos, Brazil who was called home on the Feast of Saint Mark, the Evangelist representing the Lion - April 25, 1991 at the age of 87. Tower of Trent Trophy to Bishop de Castro Mayer
