Act of Contrition

  O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins, because of Thy just punishments, but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, Who art all-good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to sin no more and to avoid the near occasions of sin.

Indulgence of three years. Raccolta 36

Act of Faith

   O my God, I firmly believe that Thou art one God in three Divine Persons, Father, Son and Holy Ghost; I believe that Thy Divine Son became man, and died for our sins, and that He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe these and all the truths which the Holy Catholic Church teaches, because Thou has revealed them, Who canst neither deceive nor be deceived.

Indulgence of three years. Raccolta 36
Act of Hope

   O my God, relying on Thy almighty power and infinite mercy and promises, I hope to obtain pardon of my sins, the help of Thy grace, and life everylasting, through the merits of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Redeemer.

Indulgence of three years. Raccolta 36

Act of Love

  O my God, I love Thee above all things, with my whole heart and soul, because Thou art all-good and worthy of all love. I love my neighbor as myself for love of Thee. I forgive all who have injured me, and ask pardon of all whom I have injured.

Indulgence of three years. Raccolta 36

The Thirteenth Day of a 40-Day Period of Prayer and Fasting
"And the Lord said: Dost thou think thou hast reason to be angry? Then Jonas went out of the city, and sat toward the east side of the city: and he made himself a booth there, and he sat under it in the shadow, till he might see what would befall the city. And the Lord God prepared an ivy, and it came up over the head of Jonas to be a shadow over his head, and to cover him (for he was fatigued) : and Jonas was exceedingly glad of the ivy."
The Prophecy of Jonas 4: 4-6

The Fourteenth Day of a 40-Day Period of Prayer and Fasting
"But God prepared a wom, when the morning arose on the following day: and it struck the ivy and it withered. And when the sun was risen, the Lord commanded a hot and burning wind: and the sun beat upon the head of Jonas, and he broiled with the heat; and he desired for his soul that he might die, and said: It is better for me to die than to live. And the Lord said to Jonas: Dost thou think thou hast reason to be angry, for the ivy? And he said: I am angry with reason even unto death."
The Prophecy of Jonas 4: 7-9

The Fifteenth Day of a 40-Day Period of Prayer and Fasting
"And the Lord said: Thou art grieved for the ivy, for which thou hast not laboured, nor made it to grow, which in one night came up, and in one night perished. And shall not I spare Ninive, that great city, in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand persons, that know no how to distinguish between their right hand and their left, and many beasts?"
The Prophecy of Jonas 4: 10-11

  Below are the worthy fifteen recipients of our inaugural presentation of the TOWER OF TRENT TROPHY to each. Beginning Monday we will honor each individually each day through May. This issue incorporates three days to give all the time to see the fifteen so honored and to give the editor time to prepare for his youngest son's graduation. We will return with our Sunday issue. If you feel someone is deserving of recognition with a Tower of Trent Trophy send us the person's credentials and bio and we will consider it for our next presentation. Don't just send a name, but send us verified proof that the person belongs. Send it to TOWER OF TRENT Candidate

  And now, without further ado, we proudly present the inaugural group of fifteen honored in the TOWER OF TRENT HALL OF HONOR:

  The Voters and editorial Board of The Daily Catholic have settled on 15 to be honored in the inaugural presentation. It is most appropriate that we initiate these awards on this day, the 87th anniversary of Our Lady's first apparition at Fatima and the Feast of the holy Cardinal and Doctor of the Church Saint Robert Bellarmine who entreated all to uphold the Faith no matter what, even to resisting the Pope if he "endangers the faith." As we know the post-conciliar popes have and the fifteen honored today have been loyal to St. Robert's call as well as all the saints and most importantly Christ Himself. Therefore we proudly present the TOWER OF TRENT TROPHY in three categories.

   Seven of the Recipients are being awarded the Trophy posthumously with the Crimson Cross for though they did not die martyrs, they did not see the fulfillment of what they had sought - the freedom and exultation of Holy Mother Church for all of these brave heroes died on the battlefield of Tradition vs. Modernism. They will be long remembered as we honor our fallen stalwart pioneers who spurred the rest on to hold fast to Tradition.

  Though we honor them all today, beginning Monday we will honor one of the fifteen each day through the end of May.

  You'll note the marble crosses beneath the Tower of Trent letters. The Trophy is of marble, representing the solid rock and marble is probably the one mineral most identified with eternal Rome. The Tower of Trent Tributes are in two categories. First we honor the clergy - the hierarchy - our consecrated ones whom without we would not have the Sacraments. For the first presentation we honor five ordained men who have passed through the fire, hewn like gold and have shined forth for their several decades of dedication to the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church.

  We have decided for our inaugural presentation of the Laity Honors to single out three men who are deserving of the distinction. Two have published much on what has happened to Holy Mother Church as a result of Vatican II and have enriched us greatly with immeasurable knowledge of what each of us must do to preserve and pass on the True Faith. Through the literary work of these two, countless souls have found their way back to the Mass of All Ages. The other is a cradle Catholic - a household name known the world over who realized what he was to do was impossible but with God all things are possible and he has proven it with a masterpiece film that brought into true focus the Propitiatory Sacrifice of Calvary in atonement for our sins in the Traditional Catholic sense as taught from Saint Peter through Pius XII. Indeed, his single film has done more to reach souls than all the Novus Ordo priests and bishops in their entire lifetime over the past 40 years. As to other Tower of Trent Honors, there might very well be more surprises coming down the road, but for now we will keep it at the three below for longevity and commitment count greatly.

  • 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.

    A Must Read!

    to order this book click here

    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.

    With the atrocities that are going on at Fatima, we want to keep you up-to-date with the subversions being planned against Our Lady's wishes. You can call 1-800-263-8160 to petition the Authorities to stop this madness or go to PETITION

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


      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

    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica tried to burrow through the wall that has been unmistakenly erected by the twisters of truth. That wall is the wall of Separation between Church and State, something that has totally been misrepresented and misunderstood. The logic of those saying there must be a wall is more twisted than a pretzel, but that doesn't seem to faze warped minds that neglect the importance and necessity of the documents of truth - the Holy Scriptures and why the U.S. Constitution, Declarion of Independance, and Bill of Rights were founded upon the principles and tenets of the Holy Bible. That is a problem with the New Order who are so malleable to accep;ting the New Manifesto of Modernism, while twisting the Living Documents to justify killing. "Thou shalt not kill" means nothing to these cannibals of cantankerousness. Gabriel explained in his column When Living Documents Are Twisted To Justify Death!
    Hope on the Horizon
    Syndicated columnist Cal Thomas wrote this before news broke Tuesday afternoon of the deliberate decapitation of American freelancer Nick Berg in retaliation for the shameful, but hardly outrageous - to both East and West - immorality at the Abu Gharib Prison. The fact is these radical infidels would have done it anyway no matter how badly America stubbed her moral toe. It is the Muslim creed to destroy the Christian culture and make no mistake, the Western culture with all its warts, still represents Christian culture camouflaged though it may be beneath the New Order mask. Nevertheless, it is the Crusades all over again only this time the stakes are even higher and seemingly the only ones willing to fight are the English-speaking coalition - America, England and Australia against the devil represented by the crescent moon in Apocalypse 12: 3. As Thomas pointed out, nothing outrages the infidel terrorist and those thinking so are using it as an unfair political weapon here in the U.S. as Thomas asserted in his Townhall column - enough with the apologies A 'sorry' spectacle

    Catholic PewPOINT
    Editor Michael Cain went to the egg carton and the dozen chosen to the National Review Board by the USCCB in trying to unscramble the mess that has been made in the frying pan of cover-up and deceit. He took the Bishop of Lincoln, Nebraska - the Novus Ordinarians' hero Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz - to task for not having a clue while all the clues are clearly in focus, but he along with all of the other bishops have so much egg splattered over their collective and individual psyches and true knowledge of the Faith that they have made a royal omelette out of the Ordo Missae giving us something that stinks to high Heaven. Cain showed how the Board that was supposed to have the answers for the public not to put them off, but to assure them the foxes weren't running the henhouse. But alas, we find out the very people appointed are not only suspect, but were groomed or connected to the enabler of the sodomy agenda Cardinal Joseph Bernardin and his infamous 'Bernardin Boys.' Cain dug out a long lost Degradation ceremony that, if the bishops don't shape up and return to Tradition they can ship out with a formal defrocking. He explained in his editorial Bad Eggs are Deviled Eggs!
    Christ or chaos
    Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey made it clearly evident that the time for talk is over. It is time to reclaim our Catholic Legacy. It is time for action, action by those who claim they are still shepherds. If they are, then, as Tom called for - let them prove it by living up to what we as Catholics of America have been called to by previous Pontiffs and right the wrongs those compromisers of the state have effected over the past centuries. No longer can we follow the failed course. We must return to the fullness of the Faith. No longer can the bishops and faithful seek to placate man, but God in standing by the convictions of the apostles and saints and be not afraid to commit totally to standing for and teaching the True Faith no matter the consequences. There can be no more compromises for that is how we got in the moral malaise America is in today. Some can talk the talk, but can they - will they walk the walk, the same walk Our Lord took up the steep, rough terrain of Golgotha, the same walk the martyrs willingly embraced, the same walk missionaries enthusiastically took, the same walk our ancestors who settled America and built the magnificent churces and parishes that today are being eliminated in order to usher in the New Order. Tom said: enough and offered nine points for the bishops to show their mettle in his column on his site The Full Faith Must Be Taught

    Monday - May 10:
    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica focused on the fact that Mother is always right! While the flowers of Mother's Day were still fresh, he shared with us the fact that there is a very good reason why this entire month of May is devoted to the Blessed Mother of God for She is the only Mother who is always right and it is about rights, which are not ours but God's, and solely His! Our Lady knew that and responded accordingly and in so doing, all was answered in God's time. Yet today's blind rats of revisionism, revolution and rudeness poke around leading other blind victims as if they had the answers. In truth they haven't got a clue, but rather than admitting such and being humbly obedient to God as the Blessed Mother was, they obstinately and pridefully resist and twist the truth to fit their sinful agenda. Gabriel pointed out that today's charlatans of choice are truly the blind leading the blind. Not much chance of seeing clearly is there? Like rats in a maze, they have no clue what right means or what is truly right. Yet if they would put their trust in the Blessed Virgin Mary and emulate her, they'd have that 20-20 soul vision necessary for reaching Heaven. He explained in his column Mary's Brand of Choice
    The Fatima File
    Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey featured on his Christ or chaos site an article we wanted to point out to you and which better fits under "The Fatima File" especially this week when we observe the 87th Anniversary of the First Apparition of Our Lady to the three children at the Cova in Fatima. Tom documented the sad, sad fact that for all practical purposes in his life's actions to this point, John Paul II has no intention of heeding Blessed Mary's request to consecrate Russia, just as no one in the Vatican II era has any intention of admitting what the Third Secret truly is - the Apostasy in the Church which Tom showed is exactly what the modern church is doing in publicly proclaiming they will no longer do what Christ commanded them to do in Mark 16: 15-16, Matthew 28: 19-20 and John 21: 15-17 for 20 centuries. Thanks to such aberrations as the Pact of Metz, the church of Vatican II has abdicated her God-given authority as the bringing souls to Christ. She has become the church of Laodicea in Apocalypse of which the Lord will vomit from His mouth. Such are the fruits of disobeying Our Lady's request as Tom pointed out the contradictions and lies in his column The Consecration Has Been Done?

    SUNDAY - May 9:
    "Qui legit, intelligat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Fourth Sunday After Easter, he reassured us that no matter how bad the Revolution will devastate the Church - and it truly has with a concentrated, well-planned agenda to destroy the Faith and the Divine Immemorial Mass of All Ages: the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass - in the end Mary's Immaculate Heart will triumph for God has said so and Christ, in today's Gospel has promised His Spirit for "when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will teach you all truth." That same Spirit - the Holy Ghost - is the Divine Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary - the woman of Genesis and the Apocalypse. In turning to her for succor we can find safe harbor and tender motherly love where for us everyday is Mother's Day with the Blessed Mother of God. Father chronicles how the Church and society were infiltrated and how previous Popes tried to stave off the Revolution which was meticulously planned to destroy Christ's One True Church. The greatest obstacle: the True Sacrifice of the Mass. On Mother's Day Father shared the consequences and the hope in his sermon "Thine Eyes of Mercy Towards Us"
    Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi
    Kevin Tierney illustrated concrete examples of how the modern liturgy leaves the door open for allowing one to think Sacred Scripture is not inerrant, that only those points dealing with salvation are infallible and all else is open to conjecture. Wrong! Yet this is insinuated by the omission of key passages in Sunday's Proper within the Novus Ordo synthetic rite. He showed how at the heart of this is an intentional agenda to make Catholics comfortable without tweaking their consciences such as abortion, contraception and the like. While the Traditional Proper includes the why God has done something or why He asks for something, that why is most of the times either left out or blurred so as not to offend the Protestant mentality of today's Catholics who do not want to be held accountable for free will. Kevin pointed out that in the Novus Ordo the idea of the propitiatory sacrifice is vague and that one is free to choose according to their conscience because of the ambiguity - the purposeful ambigious wording of the NOM Propers. If it is not intentional, then Kevin asked them to prove it is not. So far no one has proved the contrary in 35 years. He explained in comparing the Fourth Sunday after Easter with the Novus Ordo Fifth Sunday of Easter in Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi

    Saturday - May 8:
    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica, in tribute to Mother's Day, illustrated the great comparison of today's selfish pro-aborts with the second woman who was willing to go along with King Solomon's suggestion to cut the live child in two to solve the dispute with the two women arguing over whose child was the dead one and whose was the live one. Conversely the first woman, not wanting to see her flesh and blood murdered, was willing to give her child up. That spoke volumes to Solomon and should speak volumes to us today about women who are willing to kill the flesh and blood in their womb through abortion, even contraception in preventing life. Gabriel showed how the Blessed Mother is the ideal to exemplify for in her humble obedience God gave her wisdom to cope with her seven sorrows and so much love that she shares it with all still today. He explained in his column The Regal Wisdom of a Mother's Worth
    Christ or chaos
    Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey enlightened us about a special priest who today will celebrate his 50th Anniversary as a priest during a noon High Mass in Latin at St. Mary By the Sea in Huntington Beach, California. Father Daniel Johnson has seen it all and stayed above the fray, living in the true ecumenical spirit of bringing many from other faiths not to compromise and tolerance, but to conversion in the Catholic Faith. He has maintained the traditions and built up his parish despite the innovations and aberrations in most other parishes. One way to stave off the devil? Celebrating the Latin Mass every Sunday. With his departure after Sunday, Tom expresses fear that the Modernists will move in and tear down those icons of tradition from the Communion rail to the magnificent statues. How fitting that Fr. goes out in a blaze of glory with the Latin Mass on Mother's Day for he so honors Our Lady and gave her great consolation in building up the parish which bears her patronage. Tom salutes this stalwart sacerdos in his tribute Fifty Years of Priestly Zeal

    Friday - May 7:
    Sanity of Sanctity
    Fr. Lawrence Smith shared some reflections on the attributes of a great saint and the fact that it truly is amazing how souls get well following the powerful prescription passed down by the prayerful persuader Saint Catharine of Siena and the tremendous power of prayer which this persistent Doctor of the Church practiced daily. In these days when wisdom has seemingly taken a vacation, we can take heart from the holy Catherine, who grew in wisdom and grace because she hungered for Our Lord in the Holy Eucharist and would allow nothing to spoil her appetite for Christ. We must strive to develop the same spiritual nourishment and discipline. It begins with prayer, simple prayer; and the noblest of prayers: the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Our Lord present in the Blessed Sacrament was her end-all and be-all. Should It be any less for us? Father Lawrence pointed out the necessity and degrees of prayer and how the Holy Mass is key to our growing in grace as he explained in his inspirational piece Take the Doctor's Advice
    33 Doctors of the Church
    The last and thirty-third Doctor in our chronological series on the Doctors of the Church was not only the youngest, but the most recent. She was raised to the altars faster than practically any saint in the annals of Church history. Little known until after her death, her miraculous intercession has become widely known worldwide and on the centennial of her death millions flocked to see her traveling relics as they were ceremoniously taken to every continent. This October a film depicting her short but ever fruitful life will debut in theaters on the heels of the phenomenal success of 'The Passion of The Christ'. It was Jesus Whom this saint was so in love with and committed to in everything. Who is this saint who has stirred up so much fervor and love, who is known as the patron saint of foreign missions even though she never set foot outside of Europe? It is none other than the Little Flower of Jesus - the "Petal of Perfection" Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus

    Thursday - May 6:
    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica tried to wave away the putrid pungent smoke that has seeped into everything today. No, it is not nicotine smoke as much as he deplores that, but rather it is the Pro-choice 'Pepe le Pews' who are polluting souls with the stench vapor of lie after lie. Values, morals and common sense are masked in the smoke of satan as lucifer works behind the haze to throw more into the maze of malaise by twisting evil into good and making virtue something that is offensive; something only the devil could accomplish with the hideous acceptance of abortion. Gabriel alerted us that until we add to the "NO SMOKING" signs - so prevalent everywhere in the United States today - with the additional words "OR ABORTIONS!" we are destined to all be tarnished with the tar of terror in the womb masked as a woman's right. Is it really about a woman's right to shoes? That's what they want you to think for it is not just about hard of hearing, but hard of heart as Gabriel explained in his column The Spreading Penumbra of Sin, Smoke, and Death!
    A Chronicle of Catholic Tradition
    In our seventeenth chapter of this mega-series on the History of Holy Mother Church and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, we arrived at the time of even greater conflict with heresies breaking out in the Roman Empire. From this turmoil out of Africa came a giant who would take responsibility before God for his actions in righting the wrongs he had wrought after two decades of ribaldry and veering away from all his holy mother had instilled in the wayward man who sought the riches and knowledge of the world. Yet it was St. Monica's prayers which sent him into the path of God's instrument of St. Ambrose and the source of truth: the Roman Catholic Faith. For his fiat to the Almighty, God blessed his work and abundant fruits were harvested for Holy Mother Church in fighting the heresies of that era, all successfully rebuked by the sound logic and teaching of Saint Augustine - the Doctor of Grace as we reviewed the time from 380 to 430 leading to the Council of Ephesus in studying The Augustinian Era

    IgNOMinious gNOMe Hall of Shame
    We chose May 5th as the day to announce those the readers voted for an igNOMinious gNOMe Award not only because it was the Octave Day of the Solemnity of Saint Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church, but also 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 blatantly was it not appropriate they be exposed on his feast day? You'll note the bishop above is depicted like the famous gnome who is going doddy-bonkers leaning to the left. You might call him the "Roamin' Roman GNOME" for he's gone whoopsie-daisy with the Sacred Deposit of the Faith. Therefore we presented your choices for the igNOMinious gNOMe Awards and inclusion in the igNOMinious Hall of Shame
    Sanity of Sanctity
    Fr. Lawrence Smith shared reflections on the holy attributes of St. Joseph whose Octave Feast we celebrate today. The traits and human character exhibited by Jesus - known as 'the Carpenter's Son' - came from the tender, patient teaching of His foster father Joseph who, as the Patron of the Universal Church, is the one saint we can call on anytime for he is the Model of Christian Workers, Protector of Children, Patron of Priests and Seminarians, Protector of Virgins, Safeguard of Families and Patron of a Happy Death just to name a few of the grace-filled qualities we attribute to St. Joseph in seeking his intercession. Father pointed out how obedience was at the hub of harmony within the holy family and is necessary for happy families today. The crux of the problem is that work is no longer done as a labor of love but for ends that are not pleasing to God as Father explained in his reflection St. Joseph: Teach us always to labor for Jesus
    Christ or chaos
    Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey completed his two-part essay on the state of politics today and why he is swearing off any further commentary for the lesser of two evils is not the answer as he points out. Until readers realize that the victor will covet the spoils of November and what they have wrought and what they will sow will be more spoils boiled in hell and soiled by a surrender to sin. The entire moral of the story is to forget politics, trust in Our Lady to guide us and work unceasingly toward only one goal. That is to work with every fiber of our being to re-establish the Social Kingship of Christ in America and throughout the world so that God will truly bless this nation and reclaim His rightful place upon this earth which has been wrested from Him by the prince of the world, the very prince of the netherworld - the fallen angel who said: "non serviam." Read Tom's conclusions in part two of his column A Postscript about the 2004 Election

    Christ or chaos
    Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey requested his column be widely circulated in as many Traditional Catholic publications as possible and other venues as well for the sooner all Catholics realize there is no hope in either the Democratic or Republican Party for they are the ideal of the world, not God, will we begin to make progress in the slow rebuilding of our nation as truly blessed by God, under God and dedicated totally to the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ. Tom offered the latest betrayal of pythons eating their own when George Bush and then Rick Santorum swooped down and smothered Pennsylvania constituents with plaudits for a known pro-abort against one of their own. On closer introspection, even Pat Toomey wasn't all he said he was. The moral of this story: There are no more morals. Run from the Two-Party system for, as Father Campbell pointed out Sunday, this country is broken down and cannot be fixed unless they employ the failsafe instructions of instituting the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ and honor the Queenship of Mary. Then, and only then, can we count on not being sold out as Tom explained in his first part of Why Are We So Shocked?
    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica may not be calling in any pledges to PBS much longer if the National Public Broadcast station continues its blatant propaganda masquerading as 'news' on Bill Moyers' NOW program in which the N.O.W. manifesto takes a higher priority than God. Gabriel blasted the facade of fiction posited as fact and the false prophets paraded out to turn good and virtue into evil and terrorism and pro-death culture vultures as innocent doves doing only what Almighty God would want them to do: Kill another human being for their own selfish interests! What blasphemy! Gabriel detailed how slyly they slither into the psyche where so many dumbed down Catholics and other viewers buy this rot without ever challenging reason or rationale, let alone God's law: abortion is murder! Gabriel, a man of good taste, is still having a difficult time getting rid of the bitter aftertaste after this garbage aired as he explained in his column Opera, Caviar, and Abomination!

    The UGLIES Awards
    The readers had the chance over the last month to cast their votes and this past Sunday, the Feast of Saint Athanasius, "Apostle of Tradition," was the time to present the "losers" whom you chose in various categories as the most Unprincipled Garrulous Liberal Idiot Embracing Sin (UGLIES). The whole purpose of the UGLIES is to expose sin for what it is: UGLY, and to discredit those who tolerate it and who seek to perpetuate tolerance by accepting what is unacceptable to God and therefore must be to us as well. It was therefore most appropriate that they were presented on the Feast of Saint Athanasius, the very first holy Doctor of the Church, to expose the persistent sin of these fools so that the sheep might be aware of those promoting the world, the flesh and the devil. Since our modern shepherds have failed us, this was our tongue-in-cheek way to bring it to everyone's attention and you can see who truly were The Losers who were presented an UGLIES

    "Qui legit, intelligat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Third Sunday After Easter, he illustrated how the world is beyond fixing and all the king's horses and all the king's men can't fix it. Humpty Dumpty is doomed. But not Catholics who cling to the sure footing of the tenets of the Church and invoke Blessed Mary through her Rosary. We also have the sure words of past Pontiffs and Saints who warned us to be leery of those serving up easy menus to get by, of pleasing all so all might be saved without adhering to what Christ has demanded. Today's Gospel speaks of Christ's words "A little while, and now you shall not see Me". We know that through the blueprint laid out by His Church we will see Him in eternity. What is sad is how many won't because they have cast their fate with rotten and broken eggs. Father explained in his sermon All the King's Horses
    Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi
    Kevin Tierney showed readers how the modern liturgy has been so askewed that they no longer correspond to the correct Sundays. Such was the case with "Good Shepherd Sunday" which it was last week in the Traditional Latin Rite, but this year it was superseded by the Feast of St. Mark the Evangelist. Thus it was a blessing that the reader could revisit this beautiful Proper from "Good Shepherd Sunday" which shows the fullness of our dependence on Christ. Kevin pointed out that in the Novus Ordo this concept is entirely missing as is the idea that not all will be saved if they do not trust in Him. Such are the Jews and other pagans which the Novus Ordo, in their universalism bent, are loathe to admit. Kevin illustrated the differences in his column in increasing our awareness of the differences for "Good Shepherd Sunday" in Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi

    Shears and Tears of a Lamb
    Catharine Lamb asked of Novus Ordo Catholics if they really know what is going on or more appropriately, do they want to know what is going on? Do they want to know the truth? The sad fact is that very few do. They are content to go along with the charade of the "new springtime" and the mirage of the "civilization of love" and rationalize away sin by getting Father so and so to justify their actions to ease their consciences. Sin? What is that? Catharine insisted it is something they had better realize needs to be recognized and each in personal repentance amending their lives. But the NOM, even with the latest band-aid of Redemptionis Sacrosanctum is just more whipcream that will sour and spoil on an already stale piece of cake, molding away. For a brief time the whipped topping only covers that. It will never nourish like the True Mass as Catharine affirmed in her column as she asked Is ignorance bliss or an excuse to avoid the truth?
    Christ or chaos
    Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey in his most recent column delved beneath the ambiguous double-speak of the Vaticancrats and American bishops to show how they continue to deceive through revisionism. Whether it is downplaying the fruits of Pope Pius XII or denying definitive Catholic truths, they continue to keep loopholes open, just wide enough to hang themselves in the end, for the truth will win out. Tom re-emphasized that it will only come when Russia is consecrated to Mary's Immaculate Heart per her request to the children at Fatima 87 years ago. Only then will we see a change of hearts and a changing of the guard. Right now neither looks to be happening too soon considering the sorry track record of the modern prelates who have no desire to uphold the Traditions of Holy Mother Church but have every intent to twist them and suppress them as Tom pointed out in his column Traditionally Hypocritical
    Hope on the Horizon
    Bill Keller of weigned in with why a 40-Day Fasting Period is so vital for saving America's soul. The United States is no longer a Christian nation. If the recent events in Montgomery over the rock with the Ten Commandments, and the current legal challenge to "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance tell us anything, it is that the United States is no longer a Christian nation. One of the biggest misconceptions Christians have today, is that this is still a Christian nation. To read the rest, see America is no longer Christian

    Catholic PewPOINT
    Editor Michael Cain reminded the reader of the fact we have arrived at a crossroads in our country morality-wise. It is obvious we've allowed ourselves to become confused. The signals are mixed. Stop or Go, or proceed with caution? We have too many signs and not enough conviction. If we love him, we would keep His commandments. Many Americans have not. The great majority of Americans have spurned His love and are deserving of the chastisements that have begun visiting our shores and our families. Whole-hearted prayer and fasting is the way back to God's good graces. That begins in earnest May 1st for 40 days leading up to the Eve of the Feast of Corpus Christi. How you respond will show how important this crisis is to you and your Faith. Cain explained in his editorial A Country at a Crossroads: Pardon or Perdition?
    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica commented on how many may not have been ravaged where they were last Sunday because satan was busy in Washington D.C. hovering in and around and through the crowd of his very own disciples in revving and riling them to even more hate, as if that were possible. It was, as Gabriel asserted, true gall on the mall for common decency was thrown to the winds of shame. Truth took a holiday and those taking part in this charade were blinded by the stars in their lies. Gabriel also pointed out the hypocrisy of Jewish interests who are the first to cry foul about the holocaust but have ignored the holocaust of the womb where ten-times more have been slaughtered. Is a Jewish person more valuable than an unborn? Not in the eyes of God for each is a treasure to Him. Gabriel got to the bottom line in his column Marching into hell!
