Making Sense of Sensus Catholicus
We are pleased to be able to share another letter from Father James F. Wathen, pioneering traditional author of The Great Sacrilege. As you know he has been undergoing chemotherapy and has suffered for some time, yet he is always a priest and even with his debilitating condition, can still provide words of wisdom which we share with you in a letter sent yesterday on two thoughts. First he focuses on the Gospel from the Feast and Octave of Saint John the Evangelist in which Christ says to Peter, "So I will have him to remain till I come, what is it to thee?". Father explains Our Lord's meaning and then the meaning of this time of Christmastide and a plethora of meditative thoughts on the Incarnate Word, a paradox to even "His Own who knew Him not...and received Him not" (cf. John 1: 10-11) - for what better vocabulary could ever suffice than the Incarnate Word. That Incarnate Word was embodied with a Divine nature which was infinite and a human nature which was finite in all things except sin. We present his totally sensus Catholicus short essay sent by Maria Hughes. We have titled it, The Perfect Union


Mass Confusion
Through the auspices of Catholic Family News we are able to alert you to an excellent article by Father Paul Kramer, author of The Devil's Final Battle. It was a talk edited and transcribed for the Canadian priest connected to The Fatima Center given at the Fatima Peace Conference back in 2001. Father Kramer was trained at the Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas in Rome (the Angelicum) under whom he describes as “the last group of traditional Dominicans,” which had lasted until the 1970s. His talk contains sobering points on the nature of the New Mass and the Catholic’s obligation, enshrined in the Tridentine Profession of Faith, to adhere to the “received and approved rites,” that is, the Traditional Mass. Father explains in citing his Holiness Pope Pius XII's warning of what would happen for indeed it would be The Suicide of Altering the Faith in the Liturgy


The Fatima File
John Vennari, in the latest issue of Catholic Family News provides proof that the those of the Novus Ordo persuasion continue to purposely ignore at the detriment of countless souls and a direct slap in the face of Our Lady of Fatima whose messages have been askewed and altered to cover up the lies perpetrated by the church of Vatican II. John submitted a letter to a 'Catholic' weekly publication in England, called The Universe to counterbalance all the bafflegab submitted by readers trying to justify the blasphemies at Fatima, but The Universe has yet to publish his letter for a month now. John, realizing the longer this goes unpublished, the more the lie takes hold, is revealing what The Universe has yet to print. Despite their original fairly accurate piece on the Fatima situation, one has to wonder who got to the editors of The Universe to silence them. By their delaying the printing of John's first-hand account letter, they have themselves become accomplices in the cover-up as you'll see in Letter to The Universe


The Sanity of Sanctity
Though her feast is not commemorated in the Holy Mass universally, January 3rd is the traditional feast of Saint Genevieve, not to be confused with the Arthurian Legend's Genevieve. She lived her life in much the same manner as another French woman fourteen hundred years later - Saint Therese of Lisieux for Genevieve, a great influence on King Clovis in establishing France as a Catholic country, was only a poor peasant girl, but Christ dwelt in her heart. She was anointed with His Spirit, and with power; she went about doing good, and God was with her. France has had so many blessings and look what the elder Daughter of the Church has squandered. God have mercy on this land once known as Gaul. The Little Flower, St. Genevieve and the countless other French saints must be mourning the loss of Faith in this once staunchly Catholic country. Saint Genevieve
Gabriel's Clarion
Gabriel Garnica sounds the clarion on the vile sin of abortion by repeating the clarion signaled thousands of years ago in Moses' day. It is called the Ten Commandments, and there is no compromising this divine decalog. Yet man today thinks he can by justifying the sin of murder in the womb. Gabriel numerates why there can be no acceptance of this hideous and heinous sin by listing the reasons that correspond with each and every commandment. He shows the correlation of how it first offends God so via the first three commandments and how the fourth commandment serves as a link between offending God directly and harming our fellow man in the remaining six commandments, chief among them of course, the fifth commandment. But Gabriel points out how the sixth through the tenth are also totally incompatible with the abominable idea that a woman has the "right to choose" to kill her baby and that the U.S. Bishops cannot shy away from their duty to uphold not only Church teaching but the Divine Commandments. Gabriel explains in his first column for 2005 God Almighty Has Already Given Us Ten Reasons Why Abortion is Wrong!
"Qui legit, intelligat"
In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Double of the Second Class Feast of the Most Holy Name of Jesus, he elaborates on the beauty and treasure of this wonderful, holy Name that is above all others. Sacred Scripture and Holy Mother Church express this so beautifully, and yet today His Holy Name is profaned so, most of who do so fail to realize Christ's Own words in Matthew 12: 26 that each man shall be held accountable for what he says. If only these exclamations were a prayer instead of a profanity. But the cursing, sacrilegious, and scandalous use of our Lord's Holy Name only emotes anger in God and a long history of punishments by those who dare to profane His Name as Father points out in his sermon. He is the Lamb of God and the IHS symbolizes His name - Iesus Hominum Salvator for Jesus, Savior of Man is also represented as the Lamb of God (Agnus Dei) Who shed His blood for us. Yet how do we repay Him? By defiling His Holy Name? Not a good idea. A better idea is to recall the great Hymns that sustained the Church for so many centuries and to bow our heads and bend our knee in total reverence to our King. in his sermon "Blessed be the Name of the Lord"
FEED MY SHEEP
The day after Christmas broke with an eerie sky, an omen that the 40-year period of Mercy had run its course, blotted out by the suffocating humanistic spirit of Vatican II. Fittingly on the Feast of the Protomartyr St. Stephen, the time of Justice began. Those expecting Christ to calm the seas without totally repenting and converting uncompromisingly to His True Church, as it always was from Peter through Pius XII, may be in for a shock. The clarion of this era caught over 5 million in Indonesia and surrounding countries off guard and the lives of well over 100,000 were eliminated by the terrifying tsunami. Many more will perish in the abysmal aftermath as disease and other factors come into play until sanitary conditions are restored. This was in the third-world countries. If God can allow such a catastrophe half-way around the world, do you think North America and Europe will be preserved when these two continents are among the worst offenders? Are they prepared for such a disaster not only to the body but the soul? Do they realize they must be willing to follow Christ and His True Church just as St. Stephen did rather than selling out their Faith? If they have their spiritual house in order, they will not fear for their own lives but will realize where this voyage will end and strap in for the long haul with their Rosaries and the Faith of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church - outside of which there is no salvation - no hope of being rescued from the denizens of the deepest pits of hell. The Dawn of a New Era
"Qui legit, intelligat"
In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Feast of the Circumcision of Our Lord, He illustrates how Christ, through the obedience of His Blessed Mother and foster father St. Joseph to the old traditions, was cleansed through Circumcision, the first bloodletting by our Savior Who came into this world to save souls and, as the Apostle Paul affirms in Titus 2: 14, Cleansing for Himself an Acceptable People. Yet, where is the cleansing of grace today in the modern conciliar church? Father points out the futility of John Paul II's strange and foreign-to-Catholic ears theology and Vatican II bafflegab. Father cites through the infallible Word of Scripture, St. Irenaeus, and the eye-opening exposé published by a very respectable priest the inanity and insanity of newChurch's concepts of Catholicism. There is no 'Civilization of Love' without grace and belief in only one religion - that founded by Jesus Christ Who was like us in all ways, except sin. Yet He subjected Himself to the humiliation of the Cross which began with His circumcision, a feast incidentally and purposefully eliminated by the conciliar church. Father explains in his sermon "Cleansing for Himself an Acceptable People"
Living our Faith
We begin the New Year with the Bible as we will cover the purpose and background in a short overview of the Old Testament which began with "In the beginning God created Heaven and earth" in the Book of Genesis and ends with the last words of the beloved disciple Saint John the Evangelist in the Book of Apocalypse with "Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen" in the New Testament. Between these words are millions of others, all sanctioned as the Word and a guide for helping us attain everlasting life. That is a major reason why we provide these catechetical "points of enlightenment" in order to help more Catholics better understand their Faith. Regardless of where any Catholic is in his or her journey toward salvation, he or she has to recognize that the Faith they were initiated into at the Sacrament of Baptism, making them truly members of the Mystical Body of Christ, is the most precious gift they have been given in life. If they truly want to live their Faith as it was taught in the Church through 260 Popes, they must know the Faith and live it as Traditional Catholics. That's the only way to KEEP THE FAITH! Thus, we present HOLY SCRIPTURE: A Brief Overview
    EDITOR'S NOTE: We regret that we cannot bring you the next installment of LIVING our FAITH series. The file became corrupted and it's back to square one in compiling the series, so please be patient. Thank you for your understanding and response to this series.


This is a new feature we present to keep our readers informed. We provide you with articles from all over the world so you can see the Revolution for yourself and we - or selected traditional commentators - add our own brief commentary when it fits the situation in order to magnify for the reader the problems that grow more evident each day.


   It is sad that the best that the heretical loon, Rowan Williams, can say about the Tsunami disaster is that it makes Christians doubt the existence of God with prayer having no magical solutions. Does this mean that man should not pray for the repose of the souls of those lost in this horrific tragedy since we are just dealing with magic, as opposed to the supernatural? Similarly, does this also mean that man should not pray for the survivors, something every bit as necessary as material aid? Williams' comments show a complete disregard for the spiritual, and the knowledge that while God does not cause evil, He allows it so that good may come of it - a mystery to be sure but true none-the-less. How can man begin to comprehend the Infinite otherwise? Many who died in Asia might have a much better chance at salvation, the only reason for their creation, instead of being allowed to go on living, succumbing to the temptations of the devil, thereby putting their souls at a greater risk of eternal perdition. Where is that in the ignorant comments of Williams, as reported in the news story below? Williams gives no evidence of being Christian in his focusing solely on the natural, which is a red flag exposing those professing to be religious who, in reality, are not. It is not just "passionate engagement with the lives left," that matters, per Williams, but rather the big picture in terms of immortal souls who may require our constant prayer to get to Heaven, for those who died, and to see the eternal truths of the Faith for those who survived in order to have the best chance for salvation. Therein lies the difference between the heresy of Anglicanism and the one true Faith founded by Jesus Christ upon the Rock who is Peter. - commentary by Gary L. Morella


Michael Forrest, Personnel Director for Robert Sungenis' Catholic Apologetics International cautions the apostate USCCB for their continued bashing of Mel Gibson and his film The Passion of The Christ. In reading Forrest's plea in which he refutes the bishops' statements and lists what these pathetic prelates should be doing, we can read between the lines to realize why the bishops hate Mel and his movie so: his film and he are through and through true to the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church and the revolutionaries do not like that one bit. That's the bottom line no matter what spin they might drivel on about. Cozying up to the ADL is only a desperate sign of misery loving company.
UPI has a short article which is typical of the apostate church of Vatican II: March in step with the political correct nazis. Let sodomites run wild, let children fall away from the faith, let bishops continue to cover up and spout heresy because a promotion or retirement perks await them. Traditional Catholicism isn't the only enemy on the VaticanTwoArians' list, now you can add smoking as a heinous sin that must be eliminated. We can just hear those spineless prelates gnawing at the bit to condemn smoking while they refuse to condemn abortion or censor pro-abort 'Catholic' politicians, while they continue to deceive so many souls in so many ways including concealing the truths of the Immemorial Latin Mass of Tradition. Maybe newchurch is getting sensitive to what hell will be like and, as they have in so many things,don't want to be reminded of necessary Catholic negative theology. Our advice to Traditional Catholics everywhere is light 'em up if you got 'em and let's smoke out the charlatans posing as the modern hierarchy from the top down!
From Koenig's International News we discover that the four most disastrous earthquakes in History coincided with either Christmas, All Saints Day or Good Friday. Hmmm, do you think the good Lord is trying to tell us all something? Like "Repent and return to the Church I founded."? What happened the minute Christ died on the Cross. Can you say 'earthquake' as in rent the Temple in half!? Man has been so dumbed down over the last half century that he can't even see the signs when they are so obvious. God help our generation. We already know the conciliar church didn't learn from the earthquake in Assisi, so why should we be surprised if people don't learn from the Tsunami in Southeast Asia. In today's issue we cover the Creation and the natural order of things created by God. Man has disrupted the natural order physically, spiritually and morally. Why shouldn't Almighty God be raving mad? The real surprise is that more disasters haven't happened. We can't say we haven't been warned!
We especially recommend as an eyeopener Fr. Moderator's commentaries for the beginning of the year which expose the underbelly of the beast with:
Harry FlynnAlso, you must read how the Novus Ordo bishops are being played for the fools they are in Catholic Citizens' inside look at the enemy among us.
Father Paul Wickens And Free Republic discussion page focuses on the struggle for control of the late Father Paul Wicken's beautiful St. Anthony's traditional parish. The rationale reminds us of exactly what happened in Campos. If someone still says the Novus Ordo don't trust him with preserving the Traditional Latin Mass. We've already seen the prognostication of so many Traditional Catholics come true when the Society of St. John Marie Vianney put their trust in Bishop Rifan.

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





      The hymn "The Twelve Days of Christmas," so popular today in secular circles during this time of year, was actually a secret catechism based on the Truths of the Roman Catechism of Trent. This abbreviated code was sung by Roman Catholics after the Reformation in many countries such as England where they were not allowed to practice their faith. Thus, in similar fashion as the early Christians used the symbol of the fish, so also persecuted and deprived faithful Catholics sought to communicate with fellow Catholics to truly celebrate the Faith underground. Paramount was the Birth of Jesus Christ as the Savior in the Catholic tradition. By singing this song, they could communicate without fear of reprisal. Thus they formed this "carol" which represented "religious reality" in symbols. This also held true during the persecutions of the French Revolution.

       The "True Love" is God the Father. The Partridge in a pear tree is the Holy Trinity - in particular the Holy Spirit (the Dove) and Jesus Christ Who is known as the "Second Adam". We all know that the fall of man derived around an apple tree. A pear tree ties into this analogy and elevates the redemption.

       The day is coming when loyal Catholics may have to revert to such a code once more to uphold the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church. We describe each day of Christmas and the hidden Catholic meaning to the song. Many do not realize that the Twelve Days of Christmas are after Christmas - not before, and cover the time between Christmas Day and the Feast of Epiphany which is traditionally celebrated on January 6th. For their meanings, see Twelve Days of Christmas.


    Because the Traditional Mass has forged many saints. "Innumerable saints have been fed abundantly with the proper piety towards God by it ..." (Pope Paul VI, Apostolic Constitution Missale Romanum)
    So why, then, in that same constitution did Montini not stick by that conviction? No, instead, with the satanic Bugnini egging him on, the pope persisted in setting in motion the "abomination of desolation" with the sacriligeous Novus Ordo Missae. So much for being fed abundantly. Today the 'people of God' are being fed everything but the truth. So many novelties, so few saints. Ah, yes, the fruits of Vatican II. The Vatican was warned of this catastrophe before Paul VI issued the "abomination of desolation" on April 3, 1969. See The Ottaviani Intervention This is the thirty-fifth of 62 reasons which were submitted by the Priests of Campos on Easter Sunday 1982 and endorsed by the late great Bishop Antonio de Castro Mayer. Each day we will publish one of the 62 until they're all complete.
Conversely in the True Holy Mass of All Ages:


    For thee and for thy everlasting salvation the priest says Mass, and offers that Holy Sacrifice to God Almighty.
    This is the thirty-fifth of at least 77 Graces derived from participation at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass - the Mass of All Ages - the Latin Mass of the Roman Rite which was decreed to be said "in perpetuity" by Pope Saint Pius V in codifying the infallible decrees of the dogmatic Council of Trent. These graces are taken from Father Martin von Cochem's Explanation of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with an imprimatur by New York's Archbishop Michael Augustin on June 24, 1818 during the Pontificate of Pope Pius VII.

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:
