    Schindler Family and Friends of Terri Schiavo Pulling Out All Stops to Save Terri in face of Outright Attempted Murder by Adulterous 'Husband' and Hostile Judge

    "There will be hell to pay for Judge George Greer's disregard for God's Laws and the Constitition." That is the refrain of angry Americans upon learning that Greer stubbornly defied U.S. Congress, Medical experts and Constitutionalists in sticking with his pre-meditated intent to allow Terri Schiavo to be killed by her estranged husband who wants her dead as soon as possible. Despite the hypocritical stance that he loves his wife and "wants her to die with dignity" (the mantra of those pushing for the legalization of Euthanasia) the truth of the matter is that the last thing Michael wants is for Terri to recover for if she could speak she would finger Michael as the reason she has been incapacitated for the past 15 years from his physical abuse. It would make a great Hollywood mystery thriller if it weren't true life and playing out before our very eyes in a tragedy with great repercussions if the Authorities don't do something to stop this madness. Ora et Labora is what every Catholic must do. Work and Pray. Work as if everything depends on you, and pray as if everything depends on God. The Holy Rosary is a great weapon in this cause and invoking St. Joseph on his feast day is ideal. As far as working toward saving her life, we point you to a site which provides phone numbers to key people who can make the difference whether Terri lives or dies and whether America goes the way of Nazi Germany or stands as the Home of the Free. and/or Terri'

    The Church Law of Fast and Abstinence for the US

    (Adopted by the hierarchy of the United States, November 1958)

    On Abstinence:

      Everyone over 7 years of age is bound to observe the law of abstinence. Complete abstinence is to be observed on Fridays, Ash Wednesday, Holy Saturday and the Vigils of the Immaculate Conception and Christmas. On days of complete abstinence, meat and soup or gravy made from meat may not be used at all. Partial abstinence is to be observed on Ember Wednesdays and Saturdays and the vigil of Pentecost. On days of partial abstinence meat and soup or gravy made from meat may be taken only once a day at the principal meal.

    On Fast:

       Everyone over 21 and under 59 years of age is bound to observe the law of fast. The days of fast are all the days in Lent, except Sundays. On days of fast only one full meal is allowed. Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength may be taken according to each one's need, but together they should not equal another full meal. Meat may be taken at the principal meal on a day of fast except on days of complete abstinence. Eating between meals is not permitted but liquids, including milk and fruit juices are allowed. When health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige. In doubt concerning fast or abstinence, a parish priest or confessor should be consulted.

    Gabriel's Clarion
    In this issue Gabriel Garnica begins a series of reflections for Holy Week beginning with an aftermath meditation of Palm Sunday. The Palms have been distributed in the sacramental nature intended, but too much significance shouldn't be placed on them as Gabriel Garnica points out in his column for Monday in Holy Week. He examines the properties and symbolism and proves the the temporary status of the palm, more readily replicating the whole concept of the New Order and the emotional superficiality of the palm's purpose vs. the Traditional stability of the wood which has survived the test of time in all stages from fresh bark, to sturdy beams, to petrified wood to the trunk of the Cross on which hung the Savior of the world. Gabriel provides contemplation on which property has more meaning in our life in his column The Palm and The Wood
    Quid Dicit Scriptura?
    So popular last year, we rerun Jacob Michael's excellent reflection based on Holy Writ as he uses Divine Revelation to help us all better understand the scope of this week, and the unimaginable Love God has for us that He would send His only-begotten Son to die for us so that we might live. What Jacob hopes to accomplish in his series, which are basically the Sorrowful Mysteries in "Five Days of Sorrow," is to give us all a better grasp of our own lives and put it all in perspective for every drop of His Precious Blood from those first tears in Gethsemani to the last on Golgatha had a definite, specific purpose in atonement for our sins. Jacob confirms that indeed Christ did shed tears of blood in the Garden and what those tears meant as well as the necessary comfort of the angel as he shares a most inspiring meditation for Monday of Holy Week on The Agony in the Garden
    Christ or chaos
    Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey provides his second reflection on Salvation History covering the time-frame from Adam and Eve to the glory of the Paschal Lamb on Easter Sunday. This series, first submitted by Dr. Droleskey in 2003 for The Daily Catholic, is an excellent way to complement your Holy Week contemplation. That is why we annually run this magnificent meditation for your reflection each Holy Week. In his second part Tom points out how the Old Testament was laying the ground work for the Coming of the Messiah, providing a blueprint which the Jews would recognize when He came. But over time they veered far from God so that when He did come, few acknowledged the Son of God. He parallels those times with today when society mirrors the same morose. Tom explains second of seven installments from "Eden to the Empty Tomb" with Part Two From Our Father-In-Faith To The Incarnation
    Traditional Thoughts
    Editor Michael Cain provides a brief reflection on the Proper of today's Holy Mass for Monday in Holy Week. He focuses on the journey of one of the Apostles - the one who would betray his Master: Judas Iscariot. The evangelist John illustrates in today's Gospel how he himself viewed one of his own colleagues - "he that was about to betray Him." This account at Lazarus' house after he was raised from the dead by Our Lord shows how Judas looked at the temporal treasures, which Cain equates to a drop of water compared to the everlasting ocean of treasures in eternity. John re-emphasizes this when he enforces the fact that Judas cared not for the poor, "but because he was a thief." Strong words and the beloved disciple reveals here that Christ knows exactly what is going on, even foretelling His death. Cain explains in his reflection Worldly Riches are a mere drop in the Ocean of Heavenly Riches
    "Qui legit, intelligat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Palm Sunday, he emphasizes the importance of suffering, not for the sake of suffering itself but for the cleansing effect it has on the soul and for reparation of the sins of so many. He magnificently shows how Holy Writ has reinforced this and points to our own suffering today in this time when so many have sold out to the world, the flesh, and the devil. Specifically he refers to the suffering of Terri Schiavo and the cruel punishment inflicted upon her and her family, especially right now as they undergo their own harsh, but necessary earthly passion inflicted by those who abhor any kind of pain; by those who eschew suffering as a weakness, when in truth it is a strength the world will never know. It is a strength that gains so much grace through the melding of the sacraments, prayer and the self-discipline of our senses in building resistance to caving to the easy way. Pain and penance, when accepted for the Will of God, forge a beautiful soul that can withstand the scourges of satan no matter where the flagellations may come from. Father provides an inspiring prayer by the holy Doctor of the Church St. Alphonsus Liguori to bring this point home in his sermon The Refining Fire of Suffering
    Christ or chaos
    Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey begins a special series in which he presents from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday a reflection on Salvation History, beginning from Adam and Eve to the glory of the Paschal Lamb on Easter Sunday. This series, first submitted by Dr. Droleskey in 2003 for The Daily Catholic, is an excellent way to complement your Holy Week contemplation. That is why we annually run this magnificent meditation for your reflection each Holy Week. In his first part Tom traces the history of salvation from the fall of our first parents and the subsequent trials of God's people in the Old Testament in waiting for the Messiah. Tom provides the details in his first of seven installments from "Eden to the Empty Tomb" with Part One Life and Death Were Put Before Adam and Eve
    Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi
    Kevin Tierney provides a comprehensive comparison illustrating the obvious difference in rites for the Blessing of the Palms, Procession, Mass and Passion Reading of the Gospel. His documentation shows the vast gulch between what was always the norm and what today is passed off as Catholic in the Novus Ordo. Because our readership is growing and many may not have profited from Kevin's comparison of the Traditional Latin Rite with the Novus Ordo from Palm Sunday last year, we run it here again in his series "Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi" which, of course, translated means roughly how one prays is how one believes. As you can see the differences between the two are as clear as black and white. One, the Latin Mass is full and reverent, the Novus Ordo sterile and bland. It needs innovation and novelty to spice things up. The Latin Mass merely depends on the Divine. Today he takes the reader through the Propers of the Traditional Latin Mass for the Beautiful ceremony of the Blessing of the Palms, Procession and Holy Mass and compares it to the abbreviated form adopted in the Novus Ordo whereby once again he points out the omissions that on the surface may not seem like much of a difference, but in content and intent are huge in one, the Traditional Rite of the Immemorial Mass being totally Catholic, and two, the New Order Rite expressing a Protestant mentality in so many ways. Kevin identifies the differences in The Disciplines of Passiontide: Palm Sunday
    Pro-Life Prescriptions
    After a long hiatus, Dr. Frank Joseph returns, weighing in on the travesty of the Terri Schiavo case for the crux of the matter is at the very essence of his subject matter column "Pro-Life Prescriptions." He asks where were the missing-in-action Democrats as Republicans go above and beyond the call of duty to live and act as pro-lifers for the sake of one person, proving the worth that even one person is worth it all for Terri Schiavo is made in the image and likeness of God. Judge Greer, Michael Schiavo, George Felos and pro-abort Democrats and those pushing euthanasia so hard don't want to hear that. They have railroaded Terri, defying writs of Habeas Corpus and other legal measures to stop the unjust justices who have trampled on the Bill of Rights and Constitution. Terri Schiavo is being treated worse than a violent criminal. The liberals rant and rave over abuse of terrorists, but turn their head the other way when it comes to the innocent. Whether it's abortion or euthanasia, it's still downright murder and there's a price to pay for killing. God said so! Frank emphasizes this in his column Dead People Tell No Tales!
    The Sanity of Sanctity
    How fitting that this year the Double of the First Class Solemnity of St. Joseph concludes Passion Week and so appropriately immediately follows the Feast of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Joseph's chaste protector. It also serves as the lead-in to Holy Week. Though Joseph had been called to Heaven well before that fateful week, he knew intuitively the sorrows Mary was going through, and what was in store for his foster-Son Jesus. Is it not reasonable to think that when Jesus was suffering and near collapse, one of the human factors that kept Him from faltering was the wise and loving counsel of His beloved protector Joseph. So also the saints down through the ages and we today can call on this great saint who, after the Blessed Mother, holds more veneration and titles than any other saint. Today, when Christ's Mystical Body is so battered and tortured, we call on the Patron of the universal Church in a special tribute of Devotions to Saint Joseph
    Gabriel's Clarion
    On this feast of the holy Joseph, Patron of the Sick, Patron of a happy death, and Solace of the Afflicted, none is more persecuted than Terri Schiavo whose rights have been stripped from her in the same manner Christ was stripped of His garments as Gabriel Garnica so clearly compares in showing the parallels between Our Lord and Savior and one of His faithful, suffering children who, in her own way, is a victim soul, and whose body has been rendered totally a victim to the cruel agenda of the Euthanasiastics who are dead set on seeing her dead from the stubborn and very hostile judge to her estranged and strange husband who long ago abandoned his marriage vows in favor of the world, the flesh and the devil. And the devil is in control in directing those who insist on one man's fabrications as the cornerstone of their case to remove Terri's feeding tube. Gabriel lays out the comparisons between the Passion of Jesus and Terri's Passion
    The Straight Stuff
    Griff Ruby turns his attention this week to the poor in spirit for rich is their reward. Why? Drawing upon Christ's teaching and His Own actions, being born among the poorest, raised among the poor by a carpenter, always sympathetic to those who had little but gave much, and Who has sent His Sorrowful Mother over the centuries to the poor peasants such as Juan Diego, Bernadette Soubirous, the La Salette and Fatima visionaries; all poor but pure in heart. That is the key for those very poor in spirit, whom Our Lord referred to in His Sermon on the Mount on the Beatitudes. They are often those lacking this world's goods for they are saved from temptation into which most of the wealthy are plunged. That is another reason why seeking the spiritual riches of poverty voluntarily is a richness beyond compare; why many religious take the vow of poverty. This treasure of poverty is truly a blessing in disguise as Griff explains in his column Power and Spiritual Riches in Poverty
    Traditional Thoughts
    Editor Michael Cain impresses on readers the importance of the Feast of the Seven Sorrows in Friday of Passion Week as he takes the reader on a journey through Mary's life on earth, identifying each sword mystically piercing Her Immaculate and Sorrowful Heart. He poses the question: Why is Our Lady so sorrowful? Because She is a Mother and She continues to weep because so many do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love Her Divine Son. Wouldn't you weep too? Cain illustrates how Our Lady was so perfectly in sync with the Divine Will that without this cooperation many souls might be even more lost considering the ravaging perpetuated by Her Divine Son's Adversary in these trying, troublesome times. We need to heed her strong motherly advice, meld our sorrows with Hers and do as she asks, take our cares, concerns, anxieties, worries and woes and lay them at the foot of the Cross to be washed in His Most Precious, Cleansing Blood. Cain explains in his meditative essay Seven Sorrows of the Immaculate Heart
    The Sanity of Sanctity
    In honor of Saint Paddy's Day, we present today the sole story behind Saint Patrick's soul-saving mission for the Trinity. Tradtionally we strive to bring you on this feast this special diary compiled by the "Apostle of Ireland" himself, which delves into his mindset and heart, revealing to all the inate and unaldulterated pure and simple holiness of this determined cleric who dared to do great things for God and who single-handedly brought Catholicism to a pagan island in the 5th Century. Since that time the emerald isle remained one of the staunchest bastions of the Roman Catholic Faith in the world until just recently when, having no modern emulators of good St. Patrick left, satan slithered back into the Olde country through the divorce, abortion and relaxed disciplines of the Novus Ordo agendas. Prior to Vatican II, Ireland had provided more priests for America than any other country. Today they are a dying breed. Pray for a modern St. Patrick to rise up and drive the serpents of evil out, reconverting the Gaelic nation, and for that grace to rub off on America so that the Truths and Traditions can be restored and God once again returned as the Focal Point of lives everywhere. For St. Patrick's own inspirational, humble and revealing diary, we invite you to read the entire awe-filled Confessions of a Humble Apostle

    Editor Michael Cain proves its no blarney - two editorials in one week. But he cannot pass up an editorial for St. Paddy's Day and this traditional day of wearin' o' the green on this good Bishop's Double Feast makes Cain see red for too many buffoons harm this saint's good name and purpose. March 17 annually brings out the best and worst of mankind. Those who are truly Irish in heart, who truly realize what the shamrock represents, who truly understand the infrangible truths of the Faith are embarrassed by the sad fact that this glorious day has been given over to driveling druids who use it as a license for debauchery and drunkenness. He points out the ironies and secularization of this feast like so many others which the world, the flesh and the devil have commandeered to suit mammon. By gorrah, Cain and Traditional Catholics are mad, and they didn't need whiskey or green beer to rile them up, just the disrespect shown to God that has them ready to swing the shillelaghs and drive the vipers out in much the same manner as a certain bishop did a millennium and a half ago. Cain explains in his editorial A bit o' legend, a bit o' lore, and a lot o' the good olde faith!
    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica turns to Passiontide mode as he brings us an essay in this issue on the wicked and the foolish. It was the noble bard William Shakespeare who penned the words "something wicked this way comes" in his macabre melodrama Macbeth and we would be foolish to think those words are fiction for the crisis in today's world proves the Bard was on to something and we will be as well if we discern "to be or not to be" among those who relish wickedness or among those who practice virtue. The truly foolish would opt for the former, the fools for Christ would choose the latter. That, Gabriel points out, is what we need to be, fools for Him no matter what the world thinks or does. He shows how the axis as been turned to represent evil as good and virtue as evil. If we are alert, we will don the Highest Court's silks of the true fool for Christ and honor the King of kings no matter the ridicule, as Gabriel explains in his column The Wicked and the Foolish
    Making Sense of Sensus Catholicus
    Father James F. Wathen, the pioneering traditional author of The Great Sacrilege, presents a treatise this week on the Gospel of St. John, chapter 9 on the Pharisees and the Blind Man whom Jesus healed. Father magnificently shows how the Pharisees in this passage replicate the modern Pharisees who reject the Truths and Traditions of what always was taught in favor of the novelty of the times. He brings the scriptures to life with meditative thoughts that will only strengthen one's faith and one's resolve to continue the good fight in preserving and upholding the faith of our fathers. He illustrates how the Pharisees intimidated so many in Christ's time and why they hated Him so because He felt no compunction in exposing their hypocrisy. In Father's thoughts about the blind man's parents he shows how afraid even the blind man's flesh and blood were. Because of these heartless rulers, they feared expressing their overwhelming joy in their son's complete healing. He equates the same intimidation of the New Order rulers today who go out of their way to hunt down those who would dare follow what Christ taught and handed down through Divine Revelation and Tradition. Father explains in his brief commentary sent by Maria Hughes. The Man Born Blind
    Catholic PewPOINT
    Editor Michael Cain equates the situation of these times, this month, this very day with the fall of the mighty Caesar 2049 years ago. Caesar and so many emperors before and after him, empires, kingdom and nations before and after have come and gone, but only one Ruler and one institution He established continues after two millennia. That would be Christ and His Mystical Bride which has been ravaged and raped by the enemies of the Church who come in all sizes and shapes of togas, all the better to conceal their daggered agendas until the time to strike from within and without in attempting to inflict the mortal wound to His holy Church. Though they have flailed and failed, they have still weakened the Church and society by not standing strong against the hideous crimes of today's society. Cain emphasizes the futility and folly in placing trust in man while neglecting what God wills, all because of political correctness and man's determined agenda to expunge God from the equation. The mighty Caesar is still referenced to this day, perpetuated in Sacred Scripture by Our Lord's words which tripped up the Scribes and Pharisees who sought to trap Christ. Today man is trapped because he has betrayed his Savior yet still expects to be saved. What pride! What gall! Cain explains in his editorial for the Ides of March "Beware the 'Hideous' of March!"
    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica sounds the clarion of a dangerous substance that is deceiving the masses and turning our youth into hypochondriacs and worse. It is the mercury-based preservative Thimerosal and Gabriel points out how it has anesthetized the masses into believing it is helping. It is all part of the triangle of terror and, the sad part is that Thimerosal is just the tip of this iceberg that has contributed to the demise of America's health both physically and morally. Big business, government and lobbies are the suffocating triumverate that is plunging America into the abyss by positing evil as good through the horrendous sins of control through drugs, abortion and euthanasia. Gabriel hammers home the point in his column Mercury, Morals, and Murder
    Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi
    After an extended hiatus, we are delighted that Kevin Tierney has resumed his weekly comparisons of the Propers of the Traditional Latin Mass within the long-standing one-year liturgical calendar and the please-everyone tolerant three-year cycle of the New Order. Because most of the time they do not correlate with each other, Kevin has quite a chore comparing the two. Therefore, he takes a different tack for Passion Sunday and it works beautifully for the Gospel for the Traditional Rite on Passion Sunday focuses on Christ revealing Who He truly is and the Jews refusing to believe Him. Pride and arrogance are powerful allies in preventing the light from shining through. Indeed, the visible purple folds that cover the crucifix and statues illustrate how faith is hidden from today's world for the world, the flesh and the devil have enshrouded the truth, refusing to believe the truths of the Faith Christ established and seeking to deceive just as the Scribes and Pharisees did. Kevin illustrates in his column how the treasure of the Traditional Rite so fully reveals the Hidden Treasure
    "Qui legit, intelligat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Passion Sunday, he emphasizes that there is only one High Priest: Jesus Christ. He always was, is and ever shall be and no amount of modern thought can change that fact. Father points out that there is only one sacrifice that appeases the Father and that is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass - the Blood of the Lamb of God for when Christ came He abolished the Old Law and all animal sacrifices are no longer worthy. They are, as Father asserts "dead works" because they are lacking the faith. He assimilates the humanitarian bent of today's society and the modern post-conciliar church's yearning to please everyone but God. There is only one 'thing' which pleases the Almighty and that is the Sacrifice He deigned as worthy, for man by himself has nothing that could be recognized as fulfilling the price of that ultimate Sacrifice Our Lord offered for us and continues to offer through the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered for Roman Catholics only in the True Latin Mass. Father cites Sacred Scripture and reason in showing the fallacy of those who crusade for rebuilding the temple in Jerusalem. That is the antithesis of the Social Kingship of Christ for that abomination will recognize globally the Antichrist. No one in their right mind wants to be part of that. So wake up, folks, and heed what Father is saying for it is what Holy Mother Church has taught for nearly 2000 years before the infiltration of the modernists as Father explains in Jesus Christ, Son of David, our Great High Priest
    Living in Tradition
    What better day than this Double Feast of Pope Saint Gregory the Great to introduce a new series which will seek to share with you edifying traditional sites and/or parishes and/or stories of conversions to Traditional Catholicism to enhance your faith. Tomorrow we begin Passiontide and we want to share a site that will complement what you are receiving here on The Daily Catholic liturgically as well as helping you discover further treasures of the Sacred Deposit of the Faith for it offers a wealth of devotions and spirituality in its simplicity in announcing the infrangible truths of Christ and His Church. Also in this inaugural installment of this new series simply called "Living in Tradition", editor Michael Cain shares the fruits of how The Daily Catholic has grown and why the internet has become a cornucopia of information for discovering the undeniable Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church. Basic Tradition in Black and White
    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica follows up his serious eight-part series on "The Selling of Sodomy" with a piece about something that didn't sell - the animated aberration Father of the Pride which thrived on vulgar humor and insults. Thank God the public still had some sense of pride left to not watch this 'den of iniquity' in their own dens. For Dreamworks, their own pride forced Pride on the masses and this rot was summarily rejected turning Dreamworks into Nightmaresville. He points out that though it didn't sell, the pride of its producers was so arrogant that they still wasted millions and, in the process, helped NBC land in the cellar in the almighty Nielsen ratings. That translates to dollars to industry wags so gripped by the world, the flesh and the devil. Though the devil is most pleased by the sleaze they've produced, even mammon is not happy with the results. Gabriel notes the hypocrisy of those behind this garbage animation for they comprise three of the biggest names in the industry, all three of whom attacked The Passion of The Christ for its violence and supposed anti-Semitism. No matter that the three are staunch Zionists who wouldn't accept a Christian-theme if it bit them on their hide. And that's what they should do: hide, embarrassed by the miserable fare they tried to foist on the public and embarrassed because their judgment wrings of hypocrisy. As Gabriel points out, whoever sired this swill at Dreamworks was a Father Without Pride

       With Lent in full swing, we don't need to tell you that almsgiving is one way Catholics can fullfill their Lenten duty, along with prayer, fasting and penance. 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. 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 Tsunami, 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 practices for Lent. 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.
