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 Guimarăes 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.
"Ten Minutes Later, He Would Have Been Gone"
Gabriel Garnica sets the table for this weekend's over-hyped festivities in Jacksonville by presenting a soul-saving perspective of what really is important and how sports has become a religion unto itself. Rather than falling in with all the rest of the mindless minions who will go whichever way the world sways them, Gabriel points out that for all those rooting for the Eagles or the Patriots on Super Bowl Sunday, it's not life and death. Yet, life and death is the issue regarding rooting and supporting the team that rejects ecumenism, modernism and all other isms in order to be true to the Head Coach - Jesus Christ. Hell is for eternal losers, Heaven for loyal winners who paid the price by living as authentic true Catholics in every sense. Naturally, that is what makes it 'Super' as in Supernatural! He explains in his column Religion, Sports and Ecumenism
The Straight Stuff
Griff Ruby presents the first part of "What is your picture" as he retraces the steps leading up to where Modern Rome broke away from Eternal Rome. He illustrates how during the pontificate of John XXIII no one suspected heresy even as it was being formed within the revised schemas of Vatican II. Even during the reign of Paul VI few realized the defection from the Faith when Montini bowed to the demonic UN as the hope of the people, thus forsaking the one source of Hope - Holy Mother Church. In effect, Paul VI was abdicating his authority as head of the only visible institution Christ deigned for salvation, by giving credence to a false entity - basically mammon. Why is it so few realize this? Griff goes into the dangerous precedent set in Lumen Gentium on which hinges the new church of Vatican II - separate from the Roman Catholic Church founded by Christ. He details in Part One of What is your picture?
