Gabriel Garnica extends the celebration of Lourdes with a column on that great virtue of humility which pays the greatest dividends spiritually. He upholds as an ideal role model the humble peasant visionary of Lourdes - the holy young Bernadette whose body remains incorrupt today in Nevers, France. Throughout her life she remained humble and an edification to all that humility bears the greatest fruit. It takes a humble heart to obediently dig in the mud at Our Lady's request; it also takes faith. Bernadette had both and was duly rewarded with Heavenly bliss, though she considered herself a sinner. That, in a nutshell, is the essence of sainthood: sinners striving to be holy. Thanks to her holy humility and obedience millions have been healed by the waters and graces of Lourdes. Gabriel shows the contradictions of a proud world that flies in the face of those striving for humility. Yet humility is the only thing we can bank on for just as Proverbs and Our Lord, as well as St. Peter, have affirmed. To be rich we need Humility: Heaven's Currency
The Straight Stuff
Griff Ruby presents the second part of his essay on how Lumen Gentium changed everything. Today he shows how the very phrase "subsists in" within that Vatican II document not only separated
the signers and those who embraced all the New Order stands for from their former identity with the Church, but also in the same
exact breath delegated jurisdiction to authentic clerics who function
"outside their confines." It is this latter part which is most crucial
for the life of the Church and is, at the same time, least known or understood by Catholics. Part one merely set up the background for that. The people's "picture" of what is going on needs to change and in this second part Griff reveals how we can know that all of our truly faithful and valid Catholic bishops, all of who but one function "outside the confines" of the new Vatican institution, nevertheless truly DO possess the Apostolic mission and the ecclesiastical authority to go forth teaching all the nations and baptizing them in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, exactly as the Apostles of old. As for the new Vatican institution, it is rapidly becoming all the more and more merely an ecumenical epidermis that may wither.
He explains in Part Two of What is your picture?
Inside The Vatican Staff, headed by editor Robert Moynihan has broken a story that John Paul II has confided he will canonize Pope Pius XII before he dies,"I will not die before I canonize Pope Pius XII." This must come as a shock to most Traditional Catholics who revere Papa Pacelli, but to make him a saint so quickly would not be prudent, especially by the likes of those who have usurped the Sacred Deposit of the Faith which Pius guarded so meticulously even though he realized the enemy had already penetrated within. If this story is true, and we have every reason to believe it is since ITV has been trustworthy in their reports in the past, it shows the enigma that is Karol Wojtyla. On one hand he practically gives the shop away and in another he agitates those very ones he's patronized such as the Jews who, among them, are many anti-Pius XII forces. It also gives credence why Modern Rome would be willing to abandon the stipulation of mandatory miracles to qualify for sainthood since JP2's time is running very short and the only way he can bullheadedly ram through Pius XII's process would be to bypass the necessary third miracle...or fabricate one. Nothing is beyond the deception of newChurch. Not only that, but he could be thinking that after he's gone, without the requirement of a miracle, his own canonization procedure could move along in the fast lane, prompted by the papolators who have already canonized him in their minds. From one who once thought that way, not so fast. Where is the 'Devil's Advocate' when you need him? We have placed this ITV Exclusive within our feature Exspectans exspectavimus for we have long waited with anticipation for Modern Rome to acknowledge Eternal Rome as the God-given sole authority in upholding the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church without compromise.

Pius XII Now on Fast Track to Become a Saint
Transition to Tradition
On the feast of Saint Scholastica, whose very name represents education, we present a countersyllabus to promoting equality in education today by Bishop Richard Williamson. Written on September 1, 2001, when he was Rector of St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary, it might very well infuriate feminists, but what he writes is truly Traditional Catholic teaching and common sense. Once you read his reasonings you'll have to admit he's right even though what he writes goes against the grain of everything the past generations have been taught. It's about time the tide is turned and women repositioned on the pedestal God intended for them in emulating the Blessed Virgin Mary. His words hold even more weight today when we can see the total corruption on campus thanks to the very fact that the balance of nature has been upturned. Why? He explains in his letter The Unwomaning of Woman
Editor Michael Cain offers a glimpse of how so much has disintegrated over the past 40 years and that few actually realize how much has been lost. That is because "they" have sought to erase all memories of the true Faith from the minds and hearts of millions upon millions upon millions, generation after generation. On this day when we are reminded so visibly that we are dust and unto dust we shall return, it is important to realize that we must fight to remember and preserve the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church before we too become victims of the deprogramming experiment wrought by the "principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness: against the spirits of wickedness in high places." It also bears watching considering the concerted effort by the enemies of Jesus to rid America of Christ in the interest of tolerance and diversity. Cain offers three films to realize this fact in his Ash Wednesday Editorial "The Forgotten"
Gabriel Garnica reminds us of a devotion forgotten by many, especially on the day assigned by Pope Pius XII for that day was Shrove Tuesday; a day when most have ignored the liturgy and rejected grace in courting satan's sirens by reveling in the bawdy and tawdry carnival atmosphere of Mardi Gras. With every year the confessional lines grow shorter as they party harder and forget the reason for Shrove Tuesday, trying to attribute that day to anything goes in the mode of 'eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow you may die.' Yeah, right. You may. Are you prepared? That is the whole purpose of Catholicism, the purpose of Ash Wednesday and Lent, the purpose for Devotion to the Holy Face of Jesus. Papa Pacelli had a reason for placing the historical feast of the Holy Face of Jesus on Shrove Tuesday, but so few realize that. Gabriel wants more souls to come to grips with the fact of how much we need His Sacred Face in a Faceless World
Making Sense of Sensus Catholicus
Today we bring you the second part of "A Catholic Pope" by Father James F. Wathen, pioneering traditional author of The Great Sacrilege. On this day of Mardi Gras - Shrove Tuesday - with the emphasis on preparing for Lent by shedding vice, Father Wathen encourages the soul with a celebration of what Catholicism truly is and should always be in application under the guidance of a truly Catholic Pope. In reading through his eleven points of what joy and peace of soul will return when a Catholic Pope once again sits on the Throne of Peter, it is enough to willingly and enthusiastically embrace the sackcloth and ashes of the next 45 days. For though these are dark and terrible times, there is a light at the end of this barren tunnel and Catholicism will have its glorious day in the sun again just as the Son has promised when victory over the revolution will come. It's guaranteed! Father clearly explains in Part Two of his essay sent by Maria Hughes. A Catholic Pope
On the BattleLine
Atila Sinke Guimar„es presents an interesting perspective on why so many Jewish leaders gathered at the end of last month in Rome to pay tribute to John Paul II. Openly they proclaimed what we pointed out last week in how the Jews changed the Catholic Faith. We all know the Catholic Faith cannot be changed. Ergo, what the Jewish leaders influenced was not Catholic, but a hybrid that has posed as 'Catholic' but does not possess the four indelible Marks of the Church. Since only the Catholic Church founded by Christ can and does possess these Marks, and since the church of Vatican II does not have all four Marks, it cannot possibly be the True Church. While John Paul II probably thought the rabbis' praise was all about him, it was really in affirming their superiority over Catholicism and the rejection of Our Lady of the Miracle which resulted in the conversion of one of the most influential Jews and close confidants of the infamous Rothschilds, enablers of Freemasonry. Until Vatican II the Holy See unofficially accepted what the Italians call Madonna del Miracolo and the institution the converted Jew Alphonse Ratisbonne founded - Congregation of Our Lady of Sion. It was specifically established to convert Jews to the True Faith. But with the ecumania of Vatican II all calls for proselytizing the "perfidious Jews" has been halted in the futile effort to please man, not God. Atila points out the "great symbolic outrage to Holy Mother Church" this meeting and Karol Wojtyla's acceptance of the rabbis' authority illustrate. He explains in his latest Bird's Eye View column at his site John Paul II "Blessed" by the Rabbis
Gabriel Garnica exposes the ecumenical picture those in the New Order have tried to develop over the past forty years. With the introduction of a new 'Catholic' all-inclusive bible on the market, one wonders how much has been altered in Holy Writ and how they would twist the infrangible truths such as the parable of the Prodigal Son. Ecumaniacs would have you believe that the Prodigal Son came back on his terms and compromised with his father and also that the other son must be rewarded and treated equally so that everyone is happy. Humanism reigns in the kingdom of Ecumania. Gabriel points out the inevitable pitfalls of the erroneous assumptions made by those embracing the new ecumenism's heresies soundly condemned by Pope Pius XI in Mortalium Animos. Gabriel shows how everything is skewered in the mindset of the mad modernists as he explains in his column Two Prodigal Sons
Hope on the Horizon
Doug Giles spices up the consciences of the shepherds and those who are lukewarm by sprinkling the salt of truth and no-nonsense in the faces of those who don't realize there were no whimps in the bible. No compromises, no endless dialoguing with the devil or tolerating sin. They didn't form committees or worry about political correctness. They lived by the rules and this is what Doug hammers home in his Clashpoint column in shaking things up so that those entrusted with the responsibility of souls will realize Christ meant what He said about those spineless salt-free shepherds being discarded and trampled upon by men, basically leftovers for the devil as Doug reminds all in his column
"Qui legit, intelligat"
In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Quinquagesima Sunday, he stresses the importance of staying the course as he reminds us of today's Epistle in which the Apostle Paul references a mirror in reflecting what is truth and what is a mirage. The truths handed down for nearly 2000 years have been blurred by the flimsy film that covers the mirror into which Novus Ordinarian Catholics glance at today. While they see themselves as doing just fine and good Catholics if they are inclusive and tolerant of their neighbor, regardless of his sins, then they will be garbed in the white garment of grace and attain Heaven with little effort. In truth this mirror, as Holy Mother Church has always taught, is distorted like a circus mirror that doesn't provide a true image of a person's soul. Father points out how the Church has always safeguarded the Sacred Deposit of the Faith in all ages of heresies and today is no different; in fact far worse because of the great numbers who have been deceived. As John Paul II lays in a hospital bed, Father asks what accountability will be demanded, especially in light of the fact he did not take the Papal Oath demanded of every Sovereign Pontiff since St. Agatho. The present pope has been living in an Alice in Wonderland world, out of touch with reality and definitely out of touch with solid doctrine, seeking to establish new thrill rides like "the New Springtime" and the "Globalization Gallop" to hide the fact that it is all a facade and not what is reflected in the mirror of truth. Father concludes with a poem by the great G.K. Chesterton who reminds and remands us all to prepare for battle, to prepare for the worst for it must needs get darker before the Light will shine through. Father explains in his sermon Through the Glass Darkly
While Zenit has provided puff pieces throughout this past week on the events that happened late on the eve of the Purification, the Inside The Vatican Staff has compiled the inside story which magnifies the resistance John Paul II has consistently shown toward common sense and doing what is right. Despite warnings that he should go to the hospital, he stubbornly resisted until it was almost too late. Likewise, despite warnings that the New Order church - which he rules and which is built on the heresies of Vatican II - is imploding and there are no fruits in accordance with Matthew 7: 15-20, because of Matthew 24: 15, he obstinately insists on plunging souls further into the abyss and away from Christ's True Church even, it sadly looks, to the bitter end. But before that fateful moment comes, will Karol Wojtyla heed what the Holy Ghost has been trying to say? Will he also go away just as Our Lord queried the Apostles? Inside The Vatican provides some interesting points.
