    TODAY'S PROPER OF THE HOLY MASS:

    Today is the Ferial Tuesday of the Third Week of Lent
    Mass is the Missa
    "Ego clamavi"


    Tomorrow is the Double Feast of
    Saint Patrick
    Bishop and Confessor
    White vestments

    Mass is the Missa
    "Statuit ei Dominus"

    WHY ONE CANNOT IN GOOD FAITH ATTEND THE NOVUS ORDO.

    REASON #61.
        Because, as stated in Vatican Council I, the "Holy Spirit was not promised to the successors of Peter, that by His revelation they might make new doctrine, but that by His assistance they might inviolably KEEP AND FAITHFULLY EXPOUND the revelation or deposit of Faith delivered through the Apostles."
        This Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani and Cardinal Antonio Bacci knew without a shadow of a doubt and pleaded with Pope Paul VI, outlining the grave danger of such veering from the Sacred Deposit of the Faith on September 25, 1969 in what is known as The Ottaviani Intervention. Just as that assertion that Paul VI had no right to impose anything against the Faith or make new doctrine while going directly against the decrees of the dogmatic First Vatican Council, so John Paul II has continued the insanity and abandonment of the True Faith for in every one of his moves during his failed 25-year papacy he has NOT inviolably KEPT AND FAITHFULY EXPOUNDED the revelation or deposit of Faith as passed down from the Apostles! He has tried to cover his tracks by issuing a NEW Code of Canon Law, a NEW curia, a NEW catechism, and a NEW doctrine - basically a NEW RELIGION for he has abandoned his own solemn oath and has betrayed his successors who upheld the infallible decrees of Trent and Vatican I. The facts are that he has not uttered one infallible word ex cathedra in his quarter of a century occupying the throne of Peter, NOT ONE INFALLIBLE WORD in the tomes and tomes of papers and pronouncements he has issued! He has allowed the NEW 'Mass' to become even 'NEWER' as if it is evolving. What it and the entire institution of Vatican II have turned into is a MESS not a Mass. The same holds for the bishops, which sadly, are most of today's Modernist Masonic men in Miters. Yet, even sadder, so many stubborn hearts are blinded and will not listen to reason or the Truth of the Faith. They are dumbed-down lukewarm ones who buy anything the revolutionists tell them. This Pope can do no wrong when, in truth, he has done very, very little right! To those who think we are "Pope Bashing," read yesterday's 60th Reason. Wake up, my friends, before you are washed away in total apostasy. As we have been emphasizing over the past several years, what St. Pius V set in stone with the everlasting celebret - a perpetual indult cannot be abrogated. No Bishop, no priest and no Pope can override that. PERIOD! To do so is to go against the Holy Catholic Church! We all know the Pope and the Bishops have done just that by denying the Traditional Latin Mass except on their terms and only if one accepts the synthetic New Order liturgy which has so defiled the true meaning of the Holy Sacrifice. Yet the church of Vatican II, the ecumaniacal hierarchy, like all in the curia including the one who appoints them - the Pope himself - are afraid to 'go public' with this vital truth so the people will know. Instead Catholics are told that a Latin Mass can only be said with the permission of the Bishop (Fat chance!) or a celebret from the Ecclesia Dei Commission, which, in fact, is illegal and unnecessary because of the perpetual celebret issued by St. Pius V that every priest for all time must say the unchangeable Mass of All Ages in the Mother tongue of the Church. The truth is the Pope and Bishops fear that were this knowledge acknowledged, there would be rightfully so a mass exodus from the Novus Ordo, not only by the laity but many priests. We can only pray that this will become more manifest as discussion continues over Gibson's film and his own beliefs which embrace all that was taught before Vatican II. This very cover-up of the True Mass was outlined quite clearly by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre (They Have Uncrowned Him and Open Letter to Confused Catholics), Atila Sinke Guimar„es, (The Murky Waters of Vatican II, Animus Delendi I and II) Romano Amerio (Iota Unum), Fr. Ralph Wiltgen (The Rhine Flows into the Tiber) and Father James Wathen in his irrefutable masterpiece The Great Sacrilege. They all document that the Traditional Latin Mass alone provides the divinely ordained formula for true vertical worship of the Triune Divinity. Every Catholic has a moral obligation to abandon the new false religion and return to the True tenets and practices of the Church as practiced from St. Peter through Pope Pius XII. As we know no Pope since Pius XII has listened to the wisdom of Holy Mother Church and for this stubborn, prideful promotion of the church of Vatican II have indeed "incurred the wrath of God and the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul." This is the sixty-first of 62 reasons submitted by the Priests of Campos on Easter Sunday 1982 and endorsed by the late great Bishop Antonio de Castro Mayer.
    Conversely in the True Holy Mass of All Ages:

    GRACES RECEIVED FROM ATTENDING THE TRUE MASS.
    GRACE #76.
        At the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass thou canst procure abundant refreshment for the suffering souls in Purgatory if thou worthily hearest it and make that intention.
    This is the seventy-sixth of 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
    TODAY'S HIGHLIGHTS

  • Editor Michael Cain addresses an Open Letter to the President of the United States and all other elected officials, and all from the greatest to the least to take seriously the idea of a necessary additional 40-Day Period of Prayer and Fasting in emulation of the Ninivites for the sake of saving America for the Ides of March have just passed. Beware as, like Caesar, we say "Et tu, Presidente?"
  • Catharine Lamb shares a whopper that might sound like a fish tale if it wasn't true. It is the sad state of how the New Order perceives Lent. She reminds us of some spiritual guidelines that are so important for all Catholics though modern Catholics have been left out of the loop thanks to those men who are definitely not the "fishers of men" Christ intended.

      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

    Today:
    Catholic PewPOINT
    Editor Michael Cain follows up the inspired plea of Protestant evangelist Bill Keller of Liveprayer.com in calling for President George W. Bush to put aside politics and personal agendas for 40 days and direct Congress and the rest of the citizens of these United States to figuratively put on sackcloth and ashes in a second Lent, if you will, a period of an additional 40-days of Prayer and Fasting from May 1 leading right up to the Feast of Corpus Christi. Considering the peril of body and soul in these times, it is most necessary and all of Christian America needs to come together in calling upon the mercy of God by atoning for the sins that have cried to Heaven for vengeance. If Bush wants to turn this country around, if John Kerry wants to make true change, then the only direction is to our knees in repentance and to fast after a brief Paschal celebration. Cain details in an Open Letter to the President of the United States, those elected officials, judicial officials, and every citizen from the greatest to the least that we must, for the sake of our eternal souls and the soul of America, follow the example of the Ninivites who, warned by Jonas, responded sincerely and were spared from God's wrath. Cain, on this day after the Ides of March, warns President Bush in his editorial "Et tu, Presidente?"
    Shears and Tears of a Lamb
    Catharine Lamb has to chuckle, yet shed a tear of sadness for the enterprising New Order capitalists who stage Fish Fries every Friday during Lent. On the surface it might be a laudable idea to help a person avoid the temptation of eating meat, a definite no-no every Friday of the year in the True Catholic Church. But no, one look at the sign at the local Novus Ordo, made to order for those who have no concept of what fasting really means, says it all: ALL YOU CAN EAT! Go ahead and stuff yourselves she quips for those in the Vatican II church have no concept of what Lent really means or the purpose of self-sacrifice. It is not to lose weight; not to stop certain cravings while taking up other cravings which could be even worse, but to focus on our own vulnerabilities and that without God we are nothing. It is only by heeding what Holy Mother Church in her wisdom has passed down, especially from St. Thomas Aquinas' inspired words and Sacred Scripture and focusing on the why of Lent that we can understand the why of the Passion and Death of Christ. Contrary to the Novus Ordinarians who dismiss Traditional practices as old-fashioned and out of touch, what Catherine has to share is no wild "fishy tale," but a "fish story" for the ages in the footsteps of the true fishers of men. The New Lent: Another Dud.

      Yesterday:
      Fingerprints of Anathema?
      Editor Michael Cain, acting as locum tenens examiner, administered the Galatians Anathermometer Theological Exam (GATE) to Boston's Archbishop Sean O'Malley in kicking off yet another series in The Daily Catholic. This, he has promised, will be a hard-hitting feature in which we will give no quarter if, in the prelates' own words, they have convicted themselves of Anathema per the Apostle Paul's infallible statements in Galatians 1: 8-10. That confirmation is the gage for the GATE and Monday His Excellency from Boston was on the hot seat, not only for his inane and non-Catholic words published in a secular newspaper, but for his totally lukewarm handling of two very dangerous men who have caused great scandal because they have not been corrected by the appropriate authorities of the Church. As we saw in Monday's 60th reason why one cannot in good faith attend the Novus Ordo, the question must be asked: has the archbishop abdicated his position of authority? Even worse, with the smudges of anathema everywhere, one has to wonder what else the archbishop has indicted himself of; the reader discovered in Giving the GATE to Archbishop Sean O'Malley!
      Gabriel's Clarion
      On the Ides of March Gabriel Garnica showed the evolution of the revolution just in the term persecution, which has morphed from the barbaric physical torture employed by the Romans against the Christians to an even more barbaric torture of the soul and psyche today with the modern barbarians at the gate - the politically correct secularists who, by lobbying, legislation and lies, have changed the landscape of morality and resorted to the same arena, so to speak, as the coliseum floor where Christians are once again oppressed for the very same principles they have always upheld. Today's mangy beasts are not the four-legged cats, but two-legged apostates, atheists and agnostics who revel in sin and will cry persecution if they are reminded of their evil way. Therefore they have mounted the forum steps and signal the collective death of Christian principle and ideals with their thumbs down. Despite the catechetical catacombs of reason and truth, the good are being hunted down and held up for ridicule in a world gone mad, a culture out of control. Therefore it is no surprise that A Tent Grows in The Coliseum.
      Hope on the Horizon
      In reaffirming the above two articles we presented a most enlightening and no nonsense letter sent to the Bishops two years ago which makes their actions since all the more suspect for they have seemingly neglected the wisdom and prudence and facts presented by three very respected doctors of the Catholic Medical Association on behalf of NARTH (National Association of Research and Therapy of Homosexuality). In the letter these doctors, one a highly regarded Catholic psychiatrist strongly advised against the ordination of homosexually-oriented priests. Archbishop O'Malley read it, and yet he responded in the secular manner he did in the Boston Globe? Please. The President of the USCCB Bishop Wilton Gregory has read it, yet continues to ignore the natural conclusions to the unnatural. As an aside, the program coordinator for the Secretariat for African-American Catholics at the USCCB moonlights for a known pro-abortion, pro-sodomy legislator - Senator John Kerry. Talk about the need to clean house! It is evident from reading this letter that the bishops surely haven't even considered cleaning house as you'll read in Letter to the Catholic Bishops on Screening Homosexual Candidates for the Priesthood

        SUNDAY:
        "Qui legit, intelligat"
        In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Third Sunday of Lent, he reinforced the words of David in Psalm 24 from Sunday's Introit, "Oculi mei semper ad Dominum" - "My eyes are ever towards the Lord." Every Catholic must be focused on God and His infrangible truths, beginning with the Credo of Belief - that Christ founded His One True Church "outside of which there is no salvation. It is a primary dogma of the Church Extra Ecclesiam nulla salus reiterated infallibly by numerous Saints, Doctors of the Church and Popes throughout the ages. With the vapors of universal salvation given credence at Vatican II with such anathema-ridden decrees like Nostra aetate and Ut unum sint, the viper of apostasy slithered in and sits coiled today more wicked than ever, ready to strike out at anyone who dares present the truth for those who have been conquered by the new religion are all blind guides who not only refuse to accept Catholic truth, but are leading the blind sheep to perdition. That is fine with the serpent who has wrought so much destruction, but not with true Catholics who, for love of God, want their fellow man to share in eternal bliss. That can only be accomplished through the True Holy Catholic Church as Father affirmed and we affirm every day when we pray the Act of Faith in confirming St. Anselm's words "Credo ut intelligam" - "I believe that I may understand." For our journey is "Fides quaerens intellectum" Faith Seeking Understanding
        On the BattleLine
        The faithful fighting On The BattleLine are not only those here on the homefront in America, but also in the Ukraine where they are locked in a bitter battle with the schismatics who have a strange ally. Then again, as Atila Sinke Guimar„es illustrated, it is not so strange when one understands the ecumaniacal bent of Cardinal Walter Kasper. Atila detailed how the church of Vatican II is now caught in their own vortexed vapors and the stench of the Pact of Metz. Once compromised, always compromised and thus is the case in Russia where Kasper is so hell-bent on acceptance that he has ordered the Catholic bishops not to proselytize the Word of God and the Faith. The faithful Ukrainian Catholics are not taking this well and, to their credit, are resisting the rot being spewed all in the name of ecumenism. Kasper's Curious "Code of Behavior"

            The problems above are all part of the Vatican II agenda and one which Atila has meticulously exposed in his magnificent Eli, Eli, Lamma Sabacthani series of books. His latest, and quite possibly most shocking book considering what is divulged and documented, has just been released and 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 to order, read and share with others his book Vatican II, Homosexuality and Pedophilia".

        Saturday:
        Gabriel's Clarion
        Gabriel Garnica presented what the editor considers was Gabriel's most profound commentary to date. It dealt with the effects Mel Gibson's film has had on not only Gabriel himself but on the masses. No one will ever be the same again after experiencing 'The Passion of The Christ'. Gabriel also identified the impact of the images and impressions, stations and landmarks that will mark this film as truly the greatest story ever told and, hopefully, unfold in the souls of countless millions in their journey back to the Truths of Catholic Scripture and Doctrine a light of undeniable truth. He pointed out that this film is so clearly filtering out the anti-Catholics as well as the border-line Catholics,in deftly separating the wheat from the chaff before the great Threshing that is to come. Gabriel elaborated further in his column A Lasting Impression!.
        Shears and Tears of a Lamb
        Catharine Lamb resumed her feature on the Canon of the Mass and those who are honored, continuing with the list of saints invoked in the Nobis quoque peccatoribus after the Consecration. These saints have been abandoned by the New Order for the very words "To us also, Thy sinful servants," which are the only audible words spoken in the Canon of the Mass per the rubrics and celebret set in stone by Trent and Pope Saint Pius V. Thanks to the Vatican II popes the powerful intercession of these saints have been eliminated just as the idea of being a sinner has been downplayed so that all will feel better about themselves. Catharine has a shock for those who have bought into this 'all is love' hype: they're in for a shock when they stand before their Maker at their Particular Judgment. She shared insight into the two disciples who came to the fore after the defection of Judas: Saints Matthias and Barnabas in her on-going feature on the Saints forever canonized in the Canon of the Mass - Abandoned Saints to sustain Thy Sinful Servants - Part Two
        Hope on the Horizon
        David Limbaugh laid out for all Americans what is at stake in the culture war that has clearly delineated who the opponents are: the secularists and the religionists. Right now the secularists are winning because the latter have been too kind, too wimpy in turning the other cheek instead of standing by their convictions. Traditional Catholics know exactly what David is talking about when he warns the reader to beware of losing something so many take for granted. Case in point: the Traditional Latin Mass. Few realized how much we would miss it until it was taken away by the usurpers who dared to change Sacred Tradition to accommodate the world. So also today the rest of the agenda of the New Order is being carried out in the very same manner as David defined in his Townhall column The one-sided culture war

        Friday:
        A Chronicle of Catholic Tradition
        The tenth chapter of our series on the history of Holy Mother the Church and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass treated the first half of the Third Century overall with the focus on the development of the catacombs which, as the bloodshed increased, became the burial places where the Faith was preserved and sprouted just as Tertullian, who lived during this very time, recorded for all posterity "The blood of the martyrs is the seed of Christianity." Another historian and theologian of that time was the famed Origen, but the last of the great apologists of that era was Saint Cyprian who, like many before him, received his Heavenly award through martyrdom. Indeed conversions increased abundantly, produced from The Seeds of the Blood
        Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi
        In the second part of our new "Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi" series introduced at the beginning of the month, Kevin M. Tierney and Jacob Michael, followed up their analysis on the the superior significance of the Traditional Latin Mass Propers of Ash Wednesday over the Novus Ordo by presenting the Propers for the First Sunday of Lent in both the Traditional Rite and the New Order Rite in which, as they pointed out regarding the NOM, so much is omitted and downplayed. It was not by chance this happened for it was all part of the greater agenda to chisel away at the foundations of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the Faith. They clearly provided the evidence in the prayers for the First Sunday of Lent when we should be on the highest alert for the wiles of the devil as the Gospel points out. The Disciplines of Lent: First Sunday of Lent
        mindless miters
        We inaugurated on Friday another new series, called "mindless miters" which is so apropos considering most of these spineless shepherds who call themselves bishops today are not only clueless but mindless when it comes to upholding and professing the True Roman Catholic Faith and all its tenets. Traditional watchdog Gary Morella took the body of bishops to task over their selection of a biased board to begin with of scholars and pharisees as the experts to pass judgment for the faithful on Mel Gibson's 'The Passion of The Christ'. It was such a pathetic, politically correct and ambiguous piece that only strived to save the arses of the bishops while forsaking the souls of the sheep as Gary pointed out quite clearly in his commentary about the Bishops' reviewers of the film in Applying the Passive Progressive Poison by Panning 'The Passion'

        Thursday:
        Catholic PewPOINT
        Editor Michael Cain recovered from a brief bout with the flu to ask incredulously where was the outrage of anti-Semitism from men like Abe Foxman, Rabbis Marvin Hier and Schmuley Boteach, or The New York Times hate-monger Frank Rich over the blatant stereo-typing of the Jewish conniver in the already-forgotten flick this past Monday night on ABC. The fact that there has been a deafening silence from the Gibson-bashers speaks volumes as to the ADL's and other anti-Catholic agents' agenda. It has nothing to do with anti-Semitism or anti-violence, but everything to do with hitting too close to home with their own consciences. Cain showed how the pabulum of 'Judas' had already grown cold and stale before the first commercial as he explained in his one-day-late editorial No one said God doesn't allow junk!
        Gabriel's Clarion
        Gabriel Garnica sounded the clarion and many wish he had done so before Monday night to save them from wasting two hours watching a politically-correct puff piece that only exposed the Paulist Father's neo-Catholic bent of universal salvation where hell is empty. This was a project first dreamt up by Fr.Elwood "Bud" Keiser who passed away in October of 2000. It was his dream to see his pet project 'Judas' become a reality. As Gabriel related, it was really a nightmare for everyone watching. Such is the caliber of garbage Hollywood passes off as entertainment. No thanks, said Gabriel, he'll take Mel Gibson's version anytime. According to the ratings, so did most of America. Gabriel detailed the sad effort in his column A "Kinder, Gentler" Passion: ABC's Judas.
        Hope on the Horizon
        Martin Grove, contributing editor to The Hollywood Reporter weighed in with an insightful article that proves 'The Passion of The Christ' is not going to slow down anytime soon but gain even more legs to the chagrin of most liberals in Hollywood. Grove pinpointed the markets and showed the possibilities that Europe could double the phenomenal turn-out so far in the U.S. It would almost seem as a competition. American movie-goers vs. European film fans. Who will win at the box office? Grove showed quite clearly that Mel Gibson is the ultimate winner who shouldn't have to worry about ever having to disseminate his resume around tinsel town anymore. After 'Passion,' no need for Gibson to work again

        Tuesday and Wednesday
        "Feed My Sheep"
        Dr. Edward Ciaccio returned after a long hiatus and we were delighted to welcome him back and congratulate him on his marriage. Ed got down to brass tacks in his columm by letting America and the world know of the scandal occurring in the Big Apple and what the motives are. They are not good! He showed how this is all the result of the barren fruits of Vatican II and now it's time to say 'Enough!' He pleaded the plight of the desperate faithful parishioners of St. Ann's beautiful church on East 12th Street in New York which Egan wants to sell to pay off hush money for the sins of sodomite clergy. Egan is only compounding one sin upon another and the worst part is that those who will suffer the most are the Poor Souls in Purgatory for St. Ann's is one of only five churches in the U.S. given a Papal Indult for a plenary indulgence for the Church Suffering. It's time for this total sacking of the Faith to stop as Ed detailed in his column The Scarlet Sell-out of Souls!
        HOT ISSUES
        Robert A. Sungenis, M.A., President of Catholic Apologetics International at www.catholicintl.com, and undoubtedly one of the leading Catholic Apologists in Traditional circles today, delved into why sodomy has slithered so stealthily into the modern church of Vatican II. He uncovered the portal of entry through the gaping ambiguous loopholes that have made it so easy for the National Catholic Reporter to announce to the world that they condone Homosexual Marriages with few even raising an eyebrow. Why? Could it be because the USCCB and Vatican aren't as concerned as they should be? And could it be that it is all part of the agenda of ambiguous documents which prompt the Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments to be wishy-washy in something in which he must in his position be absolute? The fact is there is no longer any discipline! Bob revealed the loopholes that have created such a sordid situation in his commentary Is the Closet Now Empty?.
        Hope on the Horizon
        Joseph Farah, editor and executive chief officer of WorldNetDaily.com railed in his 'Between the Lines" commentary on the Hollywood Industry for their shameful posthumous inclusion of Adolf Hitler's filmmaker-propagandist Leni Riefenstahl who died this past year. She was included with such American icons as Bob Hope and Gregory Peck. Horrors. And that should have been Hollywood's reaction. But the silence, as Joe pointed out, has been deafening including the ADL head Abe Foxman. Evidently Foxman has been too busy chasing anti-Semitism ghosts in scaring up horror stories about Mel Gibson that he couldn't identify a real anti-Semite in Riefenstahl, nor could the rest of the hypocrites in Hollywood who have rationalized their way around it as no big thing. Joe pointed out the morally corrupt thinking of these culture crafters in his WND column Hollywood honors a Nazi

        Monday:
        Gabriel's Clarion
        Gabriel Garnica donned his barrister robes to sort out all the hubbub Mel Gibson's little movie must be stirring up. Gabriel dusted off his briefs and began preparing his schedule for the countless depositions that will need to be taken by various representatives from carpenters to pilots, Italians to Contractors, herpetologists to hypocrites all lining up to sue for surely they too have been offended by Mel's film. With tongue planted squarely in cheek, Gabriel had some fun at the expense of the whiners and moaners who have accused Gibson of anti-Semitism. Gabriel pointed out that it might just be the tip of the proverbial idiots'iceberg that is melting mighty fast from the heat of the public's overwhelming acceptance of 'The Passion of The Christ' in his column Lawsuits Pending!
        Vox Populi
        We presented the third wave of testimonies from readers sent to us with seven more heartfelt affirmations of how it affected each person's heart. As we said in the teaser above, we've heard from most of the liberal 'Scribes and Pharisees' who are ruing the fact Mel's movie is headed for all-time records. Maybe they do need to add a little salt and pepper to their stewed crow. Now it was time to continue hearing from you. Thus we published more feedback from our readers on their take on 'The Passion of The Christ', including comments sent in by a reader from Paul Harvey in this feature we call the voice of the people, which, translated into Latin, is Vox Populi Part Two.
        Hope on the Horizon
        Laura Ingraham, host of a nationally syndicated radio show and author of Shut up and Sing: How Elites from Hollywood, Politics, and the UN are Subverting America, weighed in with how deep Hollywood has dug themselves into the sand, burrowing in frustration over Mel Gibson's phenomenal success. While so many had it as their intention to expose and discredit Mel, they have only succeeded in exposing and discrediting themselves which says volumes as Laura pointed out in her Townhall column Hollywood Heads in the Sand

        SUNDAY:
        "Qui legit, intelligat"
        In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Second Sunday of Lent, he put to prose the poem of the Discipline of the Disciple as encouragement for all to stay the course and exercise with the disciplines of penance, prayer, fasting and almsgiving during this time set aside for spiritual aerobics so that our souls, encased in the protective shell of sanctifying grace may be ever more protected from the ravages of the world, the flesh and the devil. Father shared his sonnet towards sanctity on the same Sunday when we heard from the Almighty Father the assuring, affirming words recorded in Matthew 17: 5, which should refresh us all the more: "This is My beloved Son in Whom I am well pleased. Hear ye Him." Father painted the picture in his simple, but inspiring and absolute aria The Discipline of the Disciple
        Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi
        In the first part of our new "Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi" series introduced this past Wednesday by Kevin M. Tierney and Jacob Michael, they brokedown the significance of the Propers of Ash Wednesday by comparing the Traditional Latin Propers that the Church, in her infinite wisdom, had set so rigidly in place and passed down through the ages, and the rite which shunned all that wisdom and set out on its own to redefine the Mass on a horizontal, humanistic plane. Kevin and Jacob showed the obvious omissions in the Novus Ordo and how the deliberate ambiguity contributes much to the loss of Faith and reverence, true Catholic commitment for how one prays is how one believes. They deciphered the words in explaining The Disciplines of Lent: Ash Wednesday
        Hope on the Horizon
        Ann Coulter, a very agitating and necessary thorn in the side of liberals and progressivists, used her sharp wit and logic to expose the absurdity of the liberal pundits at The New York Times who represent the narrow, moronic thinking of those who can't think for themselves. This author of Treason and Dereliction of Duty: the Case Against Bill Clinton knows how the movers and shakers of the liberal regime reason and she takes great delight in lampooning their idiocy, especially as they fall all over themselves trying to find reasons to damn Mel Gibson's amazing film and equally astounding response by the public. She took target practice at these dunces in her most recent Townhall column The passion of the liberal

        Saturday:
        Gabriel's Clarion
        Gabriel Garnica clearly illustrated how the Beam of the Holy Cross has beamed in on very different eyes leaving no sliver of doubt as to the purpose of those who hate Christ and all He represents. Gabriel pointed out that each person visually sees through their eyes, but to really comprehend the will of God each of us needs to see through the eyes of our soul which mirrors God's Eye and His plan for each of us. The Eye of God is reflected in the Eye of the renowned Mother of Perpetual Help Icon, the very eye Mel Gibson chose as the symbol for his film company Icon Films. Yet, Gabriel revealed there are two other eyes who are trying to blind the public. Never mind that these two other "Eyes" have so many beams in their own corrupted corneas, to them it doesn't matter that they have been responsible for the damnation of so many pupils of pulp fiction. That is the way evil sees and conquers. But God knows all and sees all and that is the key as Gabriel explained in his column An Eye for all eyes
        Shears and Tears of a Lamb
        Catharine Lamb took a break from her series on the Saints of the Canon to rail against the spineless bishops who have remained virtually silent about the sinfulness of Senator John Kerry. This is a great scandal and those who slumber in sin are in for a rude awakening. Kerry is already on record as promoting sins that cry to Heaven for vengeance. Catharine emphasizes that just denying him Communion is nothing but a slight slap on the wrist. What they need to do for the sake of souls, especially their own, is play hardball with these politicians - especially Kerry. Just as Martha Stewart was convicted in order to send a message to all executives, so also Kerry needs to officially be convicted or his sins will be shared by those who are supposed to be the shepherds. The flock is scattering and they don't seem to care. They're not going to keep pulling the wool over the eyes of the sheep too much longer for the bellkeeper is mounting the tower and soon the bell will toll as Catharine warned in her column Wake Up! It's Mourning Time!
        Hope on the Horizon
        Brent Bozell, President of Media Research Center, and a vigilant watchdog of print and broadcast media exposed the critics who are being swamped by a backlash of "we don't care what you think" public swarming to see 'The Passion'. He pointed out the absurdity of these critics who Brent caught in their own hypocrisy over past reviews of past violent films and the profane 'Last Temptation of Christ' flick. Critics may have loved it, but the public hated it and it bombed. Gotta love it! Brent asserted, that "Films like Gibson's 'Passion' remind us that film critics see themselves as far more than advice columnists. They view themselves as the (don't laugh) moral arbiters of the popular culture. But in the case of 'The Passion,' the harshest critics are dead wrong, and every day's tidal wave of tickets washes away their disbelieving, deconstructing attempts to ruin its powerful effect on American hearts and minds." Brent detailed in his Townhall column Flustered film critics and 'The Passion'

        Friday:
        Symphony of Suffering
        Cyndi Cain, who has shied away from writing most of the time in order to be the prayer pillar of this publication, took some time to share with readers her special thoughts on 'The Passion of The Christ,' wherein she could relate with the sorrows the Blessed Mother was going through and understand the thoughts of Our Lady for she had long pondered them in her heart as St. Luke affirms. In truth, Mel Gibson's film was a 'Symphony of Suffering' that, orchestrated in the open hearts of countless souls, will strike the chord of grace and timbre forth conversion of hearts and lives in doing "whatever He tells you to do." Cyndi shared her thoughts and impressions of how it has reinforced her own redemptive suffering for souls. Yes, it is all worth it, she assured in A Mother's Passion
        "Quid dicit Scriptura?"
        Friday we brought you the eagerly anticipated second installment by Jacob Michael on the Mother of God's specific mission as Mediatrix of all graces and the Wedding Feast at Cana, where he clearly showed through both the Old and New Testament, the intrinsic link between Mother and Son in Redemption. The water turned into wine and the water and wine confected into the Body and Blood of Christ, Soul and Divinity, is a fulfillment of the Old Covenant and an everlasting testament to Christ's Passion and Death carried out forever in the New Covenant through re-enactment of that same Sacrifice in an unbloody manner at every Traditional Latin Mass. Jacob showed how both holy Evangelists John and Luke made the connection of Cana to Calvary so clear in his second part of his series The Mediatrix at the Wedding in Cana
        Hope on the Horizon
        We introduced on Friday a new feature that we will bring you as often as possible and that is linking you to outstanding columns by conservative columnists in the secular sector when their words mirror Traditional Catholic values. Such was the case Friday as we brought you an article by national syndicated columnist David Limbaugh, author of "Persecution. How Liberals Are Waging War Against Christianity" who shared the wisdom of the most esteemed Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen that "Every other person who ever came into this world came into it to live. (Christ) came into it to die ... the Cross was there from the beginning, and it cast its shadow backward to His birth." Limbaugh pointed out it is not about who killed Christ, it is about what we will do with this short life we have in order to live with Him forever. "The Passion," Part III

    The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly!

    ...And you thought the Awards were over with the Academy Awards last night! Oh no, we're just getting underway as we announce today Three Campaigns to publicly acknowledge the Good,the Bad, and the UGLIES! First, the Good:

      The GOOD: The "Tower of Trent" Trophies!

         Other than the coveted Walter L. Matt Memorial Lecture, there are no official recognitions that we know of. That is why we have created the "Tower of Trent" Trophies to present on the web to worthy recipients who have fought for the cause of preserving and upholding the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church. Though we are announcing this first in the order, it will be the last to be rewarded. Deadline for nominations and categories so that we might be able to acknowledge more worthy efforts will be Easter Monday, April 12th. That is the day after the Feast of Saint Leo the Great. The actual announcement of winners will be on the 87th Anniversary of Our Lady's First Apparition at Fatima and the Feast of that great Doctor of carrying out the Decrees of Trent, Saint Robert Bellarmine. You can send your nominations and ideas to Tower of Trent Nominations and Category Suggestions

      The BAD: The IgNOMinious gNOMe Awards!
          The Bad we can consider as the IgNOMinious gNOMe Awards, the first annual which will acknowledge any bad Catholic ecclesiastic in prayerful hope he'll wake up to his ecumania and repent. The nominees in this category are anyone who claims to be 'Catholic' whether they be clergy or laity for gNOMe is an acronym for goofiest New Order Moron of ecumania! Of course, the capitalization of the NOM stands for Novus Ordo Missae. Enough said. We should really have fun with this one so let your imaginations soar. Of course chief among this array are the bishops and cardinals and already we can think of a slew of them who will be ideal candidates for this ignominious award. You'll note on the logo a bishop depicted like the famous gnome who is going doddy-bonkers leaning to the left. You might call him the "Roamin' Roman GNOME" who has gone whoopsie-daisy with the Sacred Deposit of the Faith. Deadline for nominations is, what else, April Fools Day. The gNOMe winners, or in this case 'losers' will be announced on Wednesday, May 5th the Feast of the great and holy Pope who codified Trent Pope Saint Pius V. Since he is the one whom the bishops today have been disobeying so is it not appropriate they be exposed on his feast day? Again, in this category we are open to all kinds of ideas and you may submit any suggestions and nominees to gNOMe Nominations and Category Suggestions

      The Ugly: the UGLIES!
          This final category is open to anyone. Basically UGLIES is an acronym for Unprincipled Garrulous Liberal Idiots Embracing Sin. So you can see this is your chance to vent and to nominate those who you'd like to see be given an UGLIES - which secular fool you thought was the most Unprincipled Garrulous Liberal Idiot Embracing Sin (UGLIES). The sky is the limit for those eligible from Andy Rooney to Gavin Newsom; from John Kerry to Frank Rich; from Janet Jackson to Rosie O'Donnell. Just a few suggestion of the many hundreds that will be submitted. The whole purpose of the UGLIES is to expose sin for what it is: UGLY, and to discredit those who tolerate it and seek to perpetuate tolerance by accepting what is unacceptable to God and therefore must be to us as well. Deadline for nominees and various categories will also be April 1st. However, the UGLIES will be the first to be exposed in all their hideousness on Sunday, May 2nd - the Feast of the Apostle of Tradition Saint Athanasius. Is that not appropriate? Let's expose these fools for what they are so that the sheep might be aware of those promoting the world, the flesh and the devil. Send your nominations and category suggestions to UGLIES Nominations and Category Suggestions

    Mel's Movie easily passes a quarter of a billion over the weekend! Hollywood stunned and fairly silent over such a phenomenon!
    Passion's' Passionate Returns Illustrate the Fever of the Fervor of Faith!
      See it and then let us know what you thought of the film and how it affected you. Share with our readers by writing My take on 'The Passion'

    Mel's 'little movie' surpassing all expectations!

    Critics cramming their mouths with crow because they've run out of excuses of how to discredit it!

    The passion for Mel Gibson's masterpiece 'The Passion of The Christ' is still going strong with the film staying well on top of all other films for the third consecutive week, amassing $31.7 million this weekend to bring its total to date to a stunning $264.1 million in less than three weeks! This 'little film' has exceeded even the most optimistic early projections, already surpassing the quarter of a billion mark behind only Lord of the Rings - Return of the King' all time at the same point of days of release. Again, amazing that two thoroughly TRADITIONAL CATHOLIC MOVIES ARE ON TOP! How about that in an anti-Catholic industry!?! Gotta love it! Many believe before it's all over that 'The Passion' will even surpass 'The Return of the King' and why not? The real King is portrayed in Mel's film as He should be. This is the reason so many Jewish leaders today and modernist Catholics and secularists are so worried. People are going to realize Who Jesus really IS!!! Projections are already coming in that Mel will reap ten-fold what he invested in the movie. How appropriate and biblical. The Hollywood Reporter's Martin Grove, in Thursday's issue, showed just how well Mel Gibson and his film are positioned. Ah, yes, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible" (Matthew 19: 25). Truly Our Lord is rewarding Mel for his work and rewarding souls for this film has caused EVERYONE to talk about Jesus Christ! Now the Vatican needs to come clean and hopefully the Holy Ghost will touch the heart of John Paul II who will realize the folly of the past 40 years and why Christ has suffered all the more because the Pope was not more vigilant on his watch and has allowed error and anathema to spread so. We can only pray for a miracle that he would wake up and return Holy Mother Church to the Truths and Traditions of St. Peter through Pope Pius XII. ABANDON THE ECUMENICAL PATH for the sake of souls! Mel's movie is bringing the whole question of ecumenism to the surface and it won't hold up against the infrangible Dogma Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus which every NO bishop is afraid to admit. Rid the Church of these charlatans! Mel's movie is a start!
