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 Twenty-third Day of a 40-Day Period of Prayer and Fasting
Christ, by His coming, shall make the latter temple more glorious than the former.
"And Aggeus said: If one that is unclean by occasion of a soul touch any of all these things, shall it be defiled: and the priests answered and said: It shall be defiled. And Aggeus answered, and said: So is this people, and so is this nation before My face, saith the Lord, and so is all the work of their hands: and all that they have offered there, shall be defiled. And now consider in your hearts, from this day and upward, before there was a stone laid upon a stone in the temple of the Lord. When you went to a heap of twenty bushels, and they became ten: and you went into the press, to press out fifty vessels, and they became twenty."

  • Today we complete 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 are 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.
  • In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Sunday Within the Octave of the Ascension of Our Lord, he emphasizes 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 points out that the New Order does not help, cannot because it is not divinely ordered. He writes, "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 reflects today 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 shows how we apply what we pray only in the Traditional Rite of the Immemorial Mass. Kevin illustrates 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

  • 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. 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

    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.

    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.

    Christ or chaos
    We want to bring your attention to an excellent article by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey on how huge fizzures are beginning to show in the false wall of episcopal collegiality. True to Our Lady's prophecies at La Salette, bishops are against bishops as the facade of unity among the bishops begins to crack. Tom shows that God does indeed allow bad for good and it is the scandalous sacrilege of John Kerry and other pro-abort politicians deliberately causing scandal by daring to receive communion in the Novus Ordo rite which has caused the cracks that grow wider and wider as the dam gets ready to totally collapse into open recognition of the already American Apostasy from the Church. Just as the Anglican church is in total turmoil because of collegiality, so also it is inevitable in the American Catholic Church. Tom identifies the situation in hopes of saving souls from capsizing. He reminds us there is only one safe landing, the solid foundation of the rock. Yet most are fleeing to the sands of innovation, unaware of its sinking nature. He elaborates in his latest column on his site, Another Part of the Great Facade Begins to Crumble

    "Qui intelligat, legat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Fifth Sunday After Easter, he pointed out the inevitable as Christ asserts in Matthew 7: 20, "By their fruits you shall know them." Pope Pius XI laid out the blueprint so magnficently in his encyclical Quam Primas extolling the absolute necessity for promoting the Sovereign Kingship of Jesus Christ, but thanks to the Revolution that hoped-for reality has been overturned in favor of universalism and the here and now. By rejecting what Holy Mother Church always taught, we are now reaping the rewards of our disobedience with wars and rumors of more wars. Father deduced that it is ridiculous to blame the soldier for offenses when the commander has been lax. So also in the Church and society. Thus is the sorry web man has woven to block out the Son in search of utopia on earth, he has enmeshed himself in a black void. How can one see in the darkness? They cannot and yet they go about blindly in the pitch black, guided only by the spurring on of the prince of the world. The Light can only shine from one source and the Modernists have done a good job in blotting it out. The only energy source to power up hope is prayer and a return to what previous Pontiffs and the saints preached, what the prophets of old foretold and what Sacred Scripture verifies. Father explained in his sermon. "Worthy is the Lamb Who was slain"

    Kevin Tierney reflected on the obvious omissions the Novus Ordo readings leave out in order to avoid admitting that the Old Testament was never salvific. To admit that, the New Church would have to also admit it is heretical to state that for others salvation exists outside the Catholic Church. In attempting to deceive the 'People of God' that we can all be saved through peace and love, the New Order rite is careful to be as ambiguous as possible. It contrasts greatly with the Traditional Proper which shows the why's and wherefore's and conveys a continuous, well-planned out theme for the salvation of souls and for the freedom and exaltation of Holy Mother the Church. Yet in the New Order, talk of the richness of the the house of God is shunned for the new thought is that the church should be poor, ignoring the Apostle John's passage in the Apocalypse that shows the church as the City of God, the city of gold. Yet, thanks to Paul VI selling out by pawning the Papal Tiara and the subsequent sell off over the decades of countless church properties the result has only been barren fruits. Rather than being rich is grace, the church today is poor and confused primarily because they have neglected the fullness of the Word and Christ's truths, veering from what the Church in her wisdom established for the faithful. Kevin illustrated two glaring obvious omissions to bring this point home in his comparison of Propers of the Fifth Sunday after Easter Traditional Rite with the Novus Ordo Sixth Sunday of Easter in Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi

    Tower of Trent Hall of Honor
    It was most appropriate and proper to initiate the Tower of Trent Awards on 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 greatly harmed souls and the fifteen honored in this inaugural presentation have been loyal to St. Robert's call as well as all the saints and most importantly to Christ Himself. Therefore we proudly present the TOWER OF TRENT Trophies 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. To view those names chosen for charter membership in the Hall of Honor, see Tower of Trent Hall of Honor

    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!

    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

    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?
