       There are three sources we strongly encourage you to follow so that one can get a true picture of what the traditions should be during this time when the chair is empty and every Catholic in the world is a bonafide sedevacantist. One is the regular news wire we carry below from a Traditional Catholic perspective from AngelQueen.org. In the face of so much fawning and false information from the secular media and even the Novus Ordo media, Fr. Moderator's daily commentaries are a must to understand what is really going on. We encourage you to go to Traditio.com for he is usually on top of whatever event has come down the pike and calls them pretty much as we see them here at The Daily Catholic in striving to uphold and preserve the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church as part of the Resistance to the Revolution of Vatican II, especially during this time when so much misinformation is flooding into homes as fact and the Novus Ordo mentality and novelties will be ingrained in so many. The third source is a very good site providing a plethora of information on the traditional practices. It is the Kensman Catholic Site, specifically the page on how traditionally a pope is elected.

      When it comes to all these ungodly laws being passed by liberal judges because of the lobbying and intimidation of a small minority out to do away with the natural and supernatural order, it is wise to keep in mind the following:
    "Unjust laws are, properly speaking, NO LAWS!"
    His Eminence Saint Robert Cardinal Bellarmine, Doctor of the Church

    THE STRAIGHT STUFF
    Griff Ruby is well-known for taking on tough subjects and not shying away from controversy. Today he may stir up emotions and traditional factions, but it is necessary to awake the valiant remnant from their slumber and self-righteousness. While Traditional Catholics cast a wary eye to the proceedings in Rome during this time when the whole world is focused on the Vatican, considering the mass apostasy of the Novus Ordinarian leaders, skepticism is warranted during this time of true sedevacantism. Yet no traditional Catholic should gloat or sit back and relax because there is a benign cancer within the traditional movement that needs to be treated with the radiation of faith, hope and charity to make sure it does not grow into a malignant tumor through the malicious rumors running rampant among the factions. The Mystical Body needs to be united, not divided. Doctors of the soul are needed and almost every Traditional Priest has the qualifications, but too many patients are calling the shots and that creates canonical pessimism which becomes havoc and anarchy. Griff tries to inject a note of positivism where so little seems to exist because of the friction created by mistrust and pride. He identifies the problems in calling for a unified understanding that will exemplify Christian charity, not chaos. He explains in Canonical Pessimism
    White Smoke, Black Fire!
    Because of the crisis now in place and because events are paralleling so much of what is contained in our novel White Smoke, Black Fire and because it deals with the death of a pope and the ensuing conclave, we have decided it is time to rerun the novel in its entirety for it is written for and playing out in these very times. For those who want to read the entire novel as it was released in 2001, you may go to Episodes to read the entire book. For those who want to take it in daily doses and concentrate on the similarities with actual events happening right now, we provide these daily installments. Today the reader is given further insight into who Fasif is and part of why the world has arrived at these apocalyptic time as Pat learns further the vital and very real chess match being played out in these times. The pawns have been captured, the bishops and rooks have fallen, only a few knights remain to defend the White Queen and King from the onslaught of the Regals of the Dark Regions in the third episode of Book Two The Smoldering as the reader is drawn in to The Universal Chess Game
    REMINDER. Only TWO DAYS left to vote for the Novus Ordo Ecclesiast who is most deserving of the igNOMinious gNOMe Award in the Hall of Shame for abandoning the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church in order to placate man, rather than God as the Apostle Paul warns in Galatians 1: 10. More than ever they are leaning left and how will they ever be righted again? Prayer and exposing their deceitfulness. That's the answer rather than condoning them in their blasphemies and apostasies.

    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica continues his four part essay on tolerance with his second installment how it gained such a devastating foothold in society today. In his first installment, he traces the origins of the meaning and what Christ intended it to always be. It meant respect for others but not for erroneous or sinful views that go against God. This is what happened when respect and humility were cast to the winds. The original meaning of the word, meant to spread the love of Christ, has been twisted to cater to the canard that tolerance is a gateway to do anything one wants with no reprise or repercussions from man or God. Gabriel explains in his first part of The Desecration of Tolerance

It is Fasif's palatial villa where Niki has brought Pat to rest and refuel but the second episode of Book Two portends there are greater and more dangerous assignments ahead for Pat as The Smoldering hints in Fate, Fasif, and Faith
    The Sanity of Sanctity
    We bring you a piece we brought you last year on the Solemnity of St. Joseph by Fr. Lawrence Smith who 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 points 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 explains in his reflection St. Joseph: Teach us always to labor for Jesus

    Rock-Solid Reasons
    Few encyclicals are as complete in the mission and duty of the Church than Pope Leo XIII's magnificent Satis Cognitum on Unity of the Church. It contains clear and concise explanation of the Church's, Bishops' and Pope's role in assuring salvation as Christ laid down for His Mystical Body. Every Catholic needs to read this vital encyclical, especially those who have been satiated with all the ambiguous, double-speak and humanistic baffle-gab and skimble-skamble that has come out of modern Rome over the past 40 years; they would do well to read Leo's solid and sure words that convey pure Catholicism in every sense and he pulls no punches, stating clearly and emphatically "The Church of Christ, therefore, is one and the same for ever; those who leave it depart from the will and command of Christ, the Lord - leaving the path of salvation they enter on that of perdition." There are countless jewels in this lengthy, but lasting encyclical which is must reading for every Catholic. Satis Cognitum
    Making Sense of Sensus Catholicus
    Father James F. Wathen, the pioneering traditional author of The Great Sacrilege, presents a balanced plea to the emotions are in motion over the papal passion that is running amok in which unverified miracles are being attributed to John Paul II and the world clamors for his instant canonization and that he be given a place in history above reproach. Yet, as Fr. Wathen points out, this pope did not preach Catholicism, but "godless humanism" which may be what man wants, but not God to Whom we must be obedient as the first responsibility for eternal salvation. The fact John Paul II did not adhere to this raises many questions, and still, Father cautions not to condemn him automatically either. That is left for God's judgment, not man's and be wary as well of those who would go so far as to call him an anti-pope or Antichrist. There needs to be a balance rooted in prayer for the man's soul. Realizing Our Lord's words in Luke 12: 48, "And unto whomsoever much is given of him much shall be required: and to whom they have committed much, of him they will demand the more" we must pray all the more for what John Paul II had to account for at his Particular Judgment. As usual we are grateful to Maria Hughes for sending Father's latest brief essay which we've entitled Papal Passions

Today we begin the Second Book - The Smoldering where the reader discovers Pat stumbling over the ashes on the Field of Abraham, now forever known as the "Field of Death." There he literally bumps into another major character who will play a most pivotal role for the Resistance - Niki Andriopoulos. While Vic tries to stave off the intimidating threats of his publisher Edwin Blix in Dallas, and while Macelli and Vendhem struggle with the riddle of who took the bodies in the Papal Chambers, Pat is invited to a mysterious Oasis for food and rest. What does it portend? Those are questions posed in the first episode of The Smoldering titled, Assigned to the Ashes

    Catholic PewPOINT
    Out of respect for the Novus Ordo establishment's time of mourning, we have refrained from commenting on John Paul II until today. But after being fed so much misinformation over the past week by the secular media who utilized every New Order periti they could find except experts on the True Faith, we've had enough. It's time to speak out before this unhealthy, inordinate love fest turns into a bonfire equivalent to hell, for that is the origin of all this worldly adulation. The news is consumed with the comings, but mostly the goings of those who fit the descriptions. But what does it all mean? In this time when men lament a man who the world blessed, where do they turn? The answer is simple: To another greater, much, much greater than he. Editor Michael Cain points this out in his editorial in which the events and participants from this past week have been ghastly misunderstood and misrepresented. With yesterday being Good Shepherd Sunday, we look to the Pastor Bonum as a balance to all the spin that has made truth-seekers dizzy and disposable. Cain provides the analogies in explaining the nuances of Prince, Pauper and Pope

Today's episode eight reveals one more key figure of the Resistance - Cardinal Gregory Zachmunn. As Pat lands in Iraq, and while the Cardinal and Monsignor Navarro concern themselves with Macelli and Vendhem in the Vatican, outside its walls the Legion plots further in the dark climes of Rome's seedy side, where the reader meets two more Legion members who have convened with Brunatti and Serrano in a stagnant basement hovel. But the master doesn't even trust his own and has employed an old wino Sebastiano Tenazi in the eighth episode of The Unleashing titled, Pride and Power: The Opiates of the Legion
    SUNDAY
    "Qui legit, intelligat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Good Shepherd Sunday or the Second Sunday After Easter, he assures all that the death of John Paul II should have no effect on true Catholics who see a pope as the visible head, but Christ always as the Invisible Head. Christ has promised He would always be with His Church "unto the consummation of the world" and since He neither deceives nor can be deceived, to worry about the worldly things exposes us as uncommitted sheep. It means we do not trust our Shepherd - the Son of God. He remanded His apostles several times about this. As loyal lambs we have nothing to fear if we stay under the watchful eye of the Good Shepherd and remain faithful to the Truths and Traditions of the Church He founded. Father points out that one cannot be His disciple if one is not willing to carry his cross daily and be a sign of contradiction to the world. When the world praises you, that is not good for if we seek the world's favor then our reward comes from man, but if we seek God's favor by doing His will and hearing His voice, our reward will be great in Heaven for we are The Sheep of His Flock

    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica asks a question every traditional Catholic is asking during this time of universal sedevacantism. What next? Quo vadis, Petrus? Where will the Primacy of Peter lead? It does not bode well for there are indeed dark clouds on the horizon, especially if we are to go by the popular, emotional spin spread this past week by the secular and New Order media that we must accommodate the world and change Catholicism to placate those who are not willing to walk the narrow path. Sodomites, pro-aborts, feminists will not give up their sins, so the Church must tolerate them and accept their sins. Nowhere in holy Scripture nor in the Sacred Deposit of the Faith is the word tolerance preached, let alone diversity. Jesus clearly forgave, but always He admonished, "Go, and sin no more!" It goes without saying that we must love the sinner, but hate the sin and do all in our power to root out sin in our own lives and others. That is true Catholicism, uncompromising Catholicism, something sorely lacking over the past 40 years. Amidst all the euphoria and opinions so prevalent this past week, Catholicism has been reduced to a political party whose platform can be changed to suit the people! Oh, how wrong they are! How wrong so many have been! But those who fight for right must remember St. Augustine's sage words, "right is right even if no one is doing it...and wrong is wrong even if every one is doing it!" Gabriel explains in his column What Next?

Today's episode six deals with the aftershock reaction. Pat Gallagher talks his editor Vic Van Wess into sending him instead of another over to Iraq on the publisher's private plane, while in Rome the reader is introduced to two very high-up cardinals who are not what they seem, and two key characters within the Vatican for the Resistance who suspect Macelli of no good: the astute American monsignor heading the Holy See's Universal Communications department Monsignor Stephen Navarro and the spunky, dedicated Irish nun Sister Bridget Marie - known to all as Sister Bridie, one of the nuns responsible for the Papal Chambers. Both will unwittingly become embroiled in the intrigue to come within the hallowed halls of the Vatican in this sixth episode of Chapter One of The Unleashing titled, The Cabal and the Camerlengo
    Christ or chaos
    Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey weighs in on all the claptrap and spin being bandied about this past week by know-nothings posing as experts. He has one very simple solution on how to avoid getting caught up in the emotional tsunami that forsakes all reason and facts: turn off the TV, close up the chat-rooms and be careful about prurient publicity that offends the ears, hearts and sensibilities of the Holy Family, let alone our own families. If one is mesmerized by the cobra long enough, one can easily be fooled into trusting the viper. Then it's too late once it strikes. Stay clear of the reptile's range by having custody of eyes, ears and mind and one will gain a greater perspective and understanding of what exactly is happening in this pivotal time of history and salvation. Tom explains in his column Ignore the Mindless Blather

    Requiem Mass
    With all the beautiful Latin employed for John Paul II's funeral, the saddest commentary is that what could have been has been wasted. What could have been a salvific Requiem Mass on the Day of Burial in all the magnificent Catholic Tradition and intercessory power from Heaven, was compromised by the sacrilegious New Order broadcast to the world sans sacrifice and replete with the automatic assumption that John Paul II needs no prayers for his soul since he is already in Heaven. Those who assume can not only make an ass out of u and me, but greatly insult Almighty God. If saints were not sure of their eternal salvation, than surely sinners should be and, yes, Karol Wojtyla, just like everyone of us, was a sinner and needs our prayers - Needs Requiem Masses. He will not get them from the Novus Ordo establishment he enabled and encouraged, and his last testament is testimony that he had no intention of refuting or condemning the heresies of Vatican 2. With this sad reality we present the Traditional Latin Mass Proper for the Holy Mass of the Dead - REQUIEM MASS
    Rock-Solid Reasons
    The reason we provide the authorized Requiem Mass above is because that is the one which His Holiness Saint Pius V, in codifying the infallible decrees of the dogmatic Council of Trent, set in stone for all time the only formula for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. To veer from this has, by his very specific warning, incurred "the wrath of Almighty God and the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul." This is only too evident and, despite the trappings and outward exhibition in Rome this week, the sad, stark truth is that modern Rome has indeed, as Our Lady foretold at La Salette, "lost the Faith." True Catholics cannot be swayed by the puffery and adulation rhetoric flowing forth so freely from the fickle crowds which are reminiscent of those waving palms and singing Hosannas and a few days later crying out vociferously for His blood. Pray for the soul of Karol Wojtyla and realize the truths of Holy Mother Church cannot evolve or change and what St. Pius V declared must be said "in perpetuity" means "in perpetuity" and no bishop can ever trump that! We present both the powerful QUO PRIMUM and His Apostolic Constitution on Form and Matter of the Sacrament in his masterful De defectibus

Today's episode five is a tough one to take for it deals with massive explosions in Iraq where one million have gathered for the ecumenical event of the millennium. We can't help but pray that nothing happens in Rome for what we have written of the world's religious leaders and civic leaders and bulging crowds is playing out right before our very eyes. Let us hope and pray we will never see the destruction that occurs in this fifth episode of Chapter One of The Unleashing titled, Armageddon Arrives!

    Living in Tradition
    Those who remember Father Louis Campbell's stunning sermon from February 27 in which he reminded us of the chicanery of the modernists who have done all they could to expunge Pope Pius XII's Apostolic Constitution Sacramentum Ordinis to cover their tracks. Father Louis pointed out that it was not available anywhere on the web and we vowed to do all in our power to procure this Acta Apostolicae Sedis from November 30, 1947 so that all would know the fullness of truth spoken of by Father in his no-nonsense sermon. Thanks to a very dedicated Traditional priest, we have found that very AAS-40-5 from the Third Volume of the Canon Law Digest, 1954 on the Essential Rites of Ordination for the Deaconate, Priesthood, and Episcopacy by His Holiness. We all know that Paul VI and the VaticanTwoArians contradicted this order and have incurred God's wrath and punishments. These men who have accepted modernism from the 60's on may look like bishops, they may sound like bishops (even though they don't ACT like bishops), but they are NOT bishops for, as His Holiness Pius writes, their consecrations are not valid. Think about this as talk heats up for the Conclave to begin in 11 days and realize most of those entering the Sistine Chapel are not even true cardinals, let alone priests or bishops. Sacramentum Ordinis
    Rock-Solid Reasons
    Following the above syllogism, we take it further by providing the decree of Pope Paul IV (not to be confused with Paul VI of V2 repute) who issued his no-holds-barred Apostolic Constitution some 450 years ago during the time of the dogmatic, infallible Council of Trent on those who deviate from the faith before they are elevated lose all authority and respect in the Church and are ipso facto no longer Catholic and, therefore not eligible to hold any office in the Church. His and Pius XII's Apostolic Constitution serve as bookends to rock-solid documentation that the whole current crop of cardinals are in apostasy if we are to be faithful to the Church from Peter through Pius XII. If we are not, if we are to be faithful to the Vatican II popes from John XXIII through John Paul II, then we have to admit that it is totally different than what was taught and handed down for nearly 2000 years. Ergo, we have to admit it is a parallel religion, a different faith than the True Faith. Now readers have that difficult task to choose. It isn't easy with everyone proclaiming JPII a saint and the "Great" but for the sake of your own soul, it is vital to know which is the True Faith - that which preceded Vatican 2 or that which has followed Vatican 2. We assure you they are not the same. Now you must choose. We offer strong evidence from Holy Mother Church to help you, beginning with Paul IV's unshakeable Cum Ex Apostolatus Officio

    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica exposes the hypocrisy of the courts - even the highest court of the land - in caving to the false premise of an "evolving standard" for if a standard is set, it cannot evolve. God's laws and principles cannot "evolve" but are set in stone and nothing can change that. It is imbedded in the dogmas of Holy Mother Church. But that matters not to judiciary or ecclesiast who subscribe to progressivism. Gabriel points out the parallels and paradox of abortion and euthanasia. Both are murder and they cross that line between pardon and perdition. The latter is the end result for those who are called "honorable" but by their deeds reveal what they really are. How can there be "decency and maturity" when those determining such on the law books are void of those attributes? Gabriel addresses this conundrum in his column Evolving Standards of Perdition
    On the BattleLine

    Atila Sinke Guimarães recently weighed in on the present circumstances in light of the confidential messages imparted to the young visionaries of Lourdes, La Salette and Fatima. All portended a great apostasy that would begin at the top and many chastisements if the world did not repent and heed Heaven's call. Considering the killer tsunami, earthquakes and weather patterns globally over the past few months, in addition to events this past week - from the legal murder of an innocent, helpless woman to the passing of a pontiff - there are signs that God means business over the blatant rejection of His moral laws and teachings. Despite His Blessed Mother's urgent warnings, the Heavenly Father must be furious, ready to avenge the adversaries of the Church His Divine Son founded - a Church reduced to a remnant. While many would not realize this with the circus atmosphere this week in which everyone praises John Paul II, few remember Our Lady's stern and sober message at La Salette a mere 150 years ago that "Rome will lose the Faith and become the seat of the Antichrist." The supposed "Third Secret of Fatima" version, released by the modern Vatican institution in 2000, certainly does not correspond with current events or the completion of what Our Lady begged her Divine Son's Church to do. While everyone is praising JPII posthumously for the collapse of communism, the sad truth is it hasn't collapsed but only spread more insidiously all over the world under different monikers - specifically the heresy of all heresies - modernism of which the late Polish prelate permitted and perpetuated. Now God has allowed these natural disasters primarily because the Church has taken up with the world. It is a punishment for our sins just as God allowed with the Israelites in the Old Covenant for veering far from Him and His teachings. Will we ever learn from history or scripture? Evidently not as Atila offers stark evidence and fascinating scientific charts of what is to come in his Bird's Eye View of the News Scientific Data on Coming Earthquakes and Tsunamis. Is this the Chastisement?

    White Smoke, Black Fire!
    Because of the crisis now in place and because events are paralleling so much of what is contained in our novel White Smoke, Black Fire and because it deals with the death of a pope and the ensuing conclave, we have decided it is time to rerun the novel in its entirety. Today episode three leaves the dawning daylight in Iraq for the night climes of Big D where the reader is introduced to the key character of the novel - Metroplex Mirror journalist Pat Gallagher - and his heart-throb Corrie Morelli, along with one who has taken their moral welfare under his wing - one Ben O'Fallon, owner of an old tavern on the outskirts of the Dallas skyline. It is late in the evening of All Hallows Eve. The ghosts are restless and many shudder as they sense within a seismic event about to erupt. Tensions begin to build in this third episode of Chapter One of The Unleashing titled, Halloween Hauntings

    The Sanity of Sanctity
    As talk of who is papabile heats up before the conclave begins, they would be wise to take to heart the words of the holy bishop and Doctor of the Church Saint Alphonsus Liguori, known as the "Keeper of the Moral Compass." 230 years ago he wrote a letter to an unknown bishop during the time of sede vacante between the pontificates of Clement XIV and Pius VI. St. Alphonsus also wrote: "The devil has always attempted, by means of the heretics, to deprive the world of the Mass, making them precursors of the Antichrist, who, before anything else, will try to abolish and will actually abolish the Holy Sacrament of the altar, as a punishment for the sins of men, according to the prediction of Daniel 'And strength was given him against the continual sacrificer'." He was right on about that as we now see what occurred on April 3, 1969, and his sage and sobering words below should give all pause to pray and unabashedly continue to preach the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church. The holy Doctor's sage and pious thoughts on the election of a new Pontiff is wise advice that should be heeded today, but most probably won't because, as St. Alphonsus says "in a word, there is a need for a general reform of all clerics and ecclesiastics if there is to be any improvement in the present great corruption of morals among the laity." And he was talking about the times when our country was founded! Imagine his words today in light of the apostasy running so rampant from Rome on down! John Vennari adds, to quote Saint Alphonsus, “There is need for prayer and much prayer”. We present The "Keeper of the Moral Compass" on the Election of the Next Pope
    Hope on the Horizon
    Barbara Simpson puts the exclamation mark on the injustice done to Theresa Marie Kathleen Schindler-Schiavo even after her death. From the church to the courts, the blood-stained hands cannot be washed for the sin lies with them for their omission. It is good that she brings this to the fore since so many have forgotten that one can sin just as well by omission rather than only commission. You won't hear that from your Novus Ordo bishops, but it comes rather from one sane voice in the middle of Sodom by the Bay - the "Babe in the Bunker" literally. Barbara illustrates the cold-heartedness of the judges who cruelly let Terri's parents swing on the limbs of hope in a justice system based on liberty. So much for bringing the tired and the poor, those in any way handicapped need not apply. She explains in her column from World Net Daily, The dress of liberty is stained with Terri's blood
    White Smoke, Black Fire!
    Because of the crisis now in place and because events are paralleling so much of what is contained in our novel White Smoke, Black Fire and because it deals with the death of a pope and the ensuing conclave, we have decided it is time to rerun the novel in its entirety. Today episode two takes us to New Nasiriyah in Iraq, the very place of the ancient Ur and birthplace of Abraham as well as the approximate location of the very first Garden of Eden. There is no evidence of any living fauna in this second episode of Chapter One of The Unleashing as dust and dirt cover the horizon in all directions from a synthetic, quickly-fashioned modern and massive circular stage arena to accommodate over one million people in attendance for the Magna Carta of the 21st Century - "One Eucharist" - the great compromise. In the early hours of November 1st The Staging: Final Preparations

    Making Sense of Sensus Catholicus
    Father James F. Wathen, the pioneering traditional author of The Great Sacrilege, presents plenty of ammunition on why Catholics cannot consider cremation as an alternative. In light of the publicity over Michael Schiavo's insistance that Terri's body be cremated despite objections from her parents to have a Catholic burial,Father provides the proofs of Catholic truth that verifies the article of the Apostles' Creed of belief in the Resurrection of the body. Father equates the fact that cremation is the final mutilation by anti-Christian forces bent on answering to satan. It is the only thing left after piercing, drug abuse and every other abomination of the human body has not only multiplied, but has been accepted by society, as mutilation of the temples of the Holy Ghost. It is sadistic and sadomasochistic. It fits satan's agenda to a tee, but not Christ's. Father shares these solid Catholic truths in his essay that hammers home the necessity to be buried, never cremated for that is the antithesis of the Resurrection of the body. As usual we are grateful to Maria Hughes for sending his latest essay entitled The Resurrection and Cremation
    White Smoke, Black Fire!
    Because of the crisis now in place and because events are paralleling so much of what is contained in our novel White Smoke, Black Fire and because it deals with the death of a pope and the ensuing conclave, we have decided it is time to rerun the novel in its entirety. First published here beginning in 2001, many of the supposedly fictional events have become facts and thus, we have updated it, shortened some parts, phased back a few characters to make it faster paced for its re-release now in 2005 at this pivotal point in history. You'll note the pope in this novel Clement XV is not the successor of John Paul II, but the successor of who will be elected next. As art imitates life, here it is so clear that life is imitating art and following a pattern that has already been foretold in Holy Writ. So far civilization has followed the script, right to the brink of the abyss. Hopefully White Smoke, Black Fire will shake souls to realize how close we are to the Apocalypse. Today we present episode one of Chapter One of The Unleashing with the dark and sinister deeds of The Mysterious Black Figure Strikes
    LOW SUNDAY
    "Qui legit, intelligat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Low or Quasi modo Sunday, he may sound like a voice in the wilderness for this weekend pagan, Moslem, Jew, Protestant, agnostic, pro-abort, pro-euthanasia, pro-sodomite and new-ager alike - even atheists - can't praise John Paul II enough as every network drones on about how "this pope preached tolerance." While JPII may have, Christ did not. Father is not here to praise John Paul, but to pray for him and point out what a pope should be - one who separates the wheat from the chaff as Christ asked; never compromise. Being Catholic is a sign of contradiction to the world for there is another power, a much higher Power and another Kingdom which we must always be focused on. Ecumenism, as an example, will eventually emerge, after all the hurrahs and huzzahs die down, as part of the lost legacy of John Paul II. For all plaudits aside, the grave errors in doctrine made by this man have done immeasurable damage to souls. The saddest part is that few have a clue about this, or what Holy Scriptures say, especially in today's Epistle and Gospel. The sad facts, that will eventually come to the fore when more realize the fruits are a facade and there are no lasting fruits, that rather than being a sign of contradiction for Catholics, John Paul II was a contradiction to Catholicism as it was taught and practiced from Peter through Pope Pius XII. Father explains in his sermon Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

    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

       With Lent in the rear view mirror, almsgiving was down this year and with events where March roared out like a lion and hasn't let up in April, we don't need to tell you that almsgiving is one way Catholics can show their sincerity and commitment to Tradition. Our Lord sheds tears because so many souls still do not know the Truth and are wallowing in the desert of desertion, devastation and destruction. Right now they are being dumbed-down further and propagandized by the New Order with every secular media leeching on to the love train that cannot see the emperor wore no clothes. Because of that the light of Tradition grows dimmer as the weather patterns and natural disasters grow stronger. With your donations to The Daily Catholic and Our Lady's intercession, you can help to save souls, brighten the path to Tradition, and dry a tear or two from Jesus' holy face, lest those of you, who have the Truth and have been blessed with the means to help, might have to try to explain your selfishness at your Particular Judgment. Think and pray over it as we ask you to remember this apostolate for charitable giving during this time when the dollar is stretched tight with donations to help the victims of the devastations in Indonesia, which must take priority. But if you have anything left over, we greatly appreciate any donation you can make for almsgiving is one of the commandments of the Church. We count on the generosity of our readers to keep up the integrity of this publication and keep it free of all advertising and banners in providing our readers worldwide with the foundations for the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church. If you can give of your love and bounty we would be most grateful.

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

    "Unjust laws are, properly speaking, NO LAWS!"
    His Eminence Saint Robert Cardinal Bellarmine, Doctor of the Church


       We invite you to find out for yourself the truth as we present a compendium portal of documents on the Faith in all aspects, past, present and to come. We guarantee what you read is in full harmony with the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church, and we guarantee you that if you read it all with a discerning heart you will be able to decipher the wheat from the chaff. You will better understand what the absolutes of our Faith are and not be fooled by modernism and ambiguities, no matter how cleverly they are couched. Remember satan is the father of half-truths.
