Gabriel Garnica takes a one-day hiatus from his multi-part series on "The Selling of Sodomy" to honor one of Holy Mother Church and civilization's greatest intellects - the holy Angelic Doctor of the Church St. Thomas Aquinas whose fullness of knowledge encompassed practically every argument past, present and to come for it is based on everything proceeding from and for God in man's efforts to strive for union with his Divine Creator and to understand and adhere the Divine Will in all things. When man thinks he knows more than God, that is when the intellect goes awry and leads to false suppositions from evolution to communism to every other ism that has visited mankind over the centuries and which have culminated today in embracing the mother of all heresies - modernism. Gabriel illustrates how Thomistic Thinking has proved the test of time and all the arguments that liberals have droned on endlessly about, have already been proven false by a "dumb ox"centuries ago who possessed Holy and Sacred Intellect. With the progressivists' theses full of errors, wouldn't you think, if there is any intelligence in their craniums, that they would realize the only solution is to return to the solid, stable and fail-safe Thomistic Thinking? This applies not only for the secular sector, but especially in ecclesiastical environs where this holy Dominican has been basically banished and betrayed. Gabriel explains in his tribute to Humble Intellect
The Sanity of Sanctity
Professor Plinio Correa de Oliveira, mentor of Atila Sinke Guimar„es, reinforces the virtue of humility which Gabriel pinpoints above, providing actual examples of St. Thomas' humility. The professor adds another virtue which His Holiness Pope Pius XI emphasized in his Encyclical Studiorum ducem in 1923. That virtue was chastity. Just as the Blessed Mother was a pure from conception in order to be the living Tabernacle for the Son of God, so also Thomas had to become a purified vessel in order to allow his heart, mind and soul to be a worthy receptacle for the infused knowledge awarded him from above. Thus he could be free of temptation with the mystical 'girdle of purity' to carry out his work for God and His Holy Church. The professor points out that Aquinas was so pure that in his work, "one does not feel any hint of the presence of the man. The only thing that appears is Catholic doctrine." Thanks to Tradition In Action, Atila provides readers the essence of this Angelic Doctor of the Church in St. Thomas Aquinas
Hope on the Horizon
Doug Giles' latest column in his Clashpoint series ties in nicely with today's saint for Doug speaks of what the rebels of the sixties have wrought - barren trees and godless agendas. While Doug is speaking here more on secular liberalism manifested through the cesspools of the public education system today and the propaganda machine of the leftist media in promoting atheism, nihilism and hedonism, we ask you to apply his points to the Church today and see what the offspring of the failed Vatican II agenda must do to turn away from the machine that has become the deceitful, monstrous and malevolent mammon. Those who caused the revolution of the sixties are in need of being overthrown, not just for the sake of society as Giles points out, but, when applying the crisis of modern Rome vs. Eternal Rome, it becomes paramount to rebel, to stop the monster machine - for the sake of souls. See if the following does not apply to the modern Vatican institution: "the machine has become so odious...that you can't take part...you can't even passively take part, and you have got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels and the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you have got to make it stop." As Traditional Catholics we must be in the forefront of this movement to disable the mammoth mismanaged monstrosity of the apostate church that has engulfed so many souls since Vatican II. Put on your rebel caps and let's go hunting for the culprits responsible for the demise. The parallels fit well in Doug's column
Rebels with a Cause
"Qui legit, intelligat"
In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Laetare Sunday - the Fourth Sunday of Lent, he shows how simple the source of salvation is and how complicated and confounded the modernists have made it. What the True Church has always taught is based on Divine Revelation, whereas what the conciliar church has taught over the past 40 years is based on 'opinions' as Father indicates in his words 'according to' John Paul II. Indirectly Father asks when did John Paul II become above Christ or His Apostles? Yet time after time doctrine and dogma are skewered in order to accommodate the 'opinions' of the conciliar popes, further eroding the One True Faith, so much so that the reason it is no longer recognizable as Catholic is because the Vatican II virus has fully taken hold. By its fruits, or lack thereof, we recognize the New Order church cannot be the true Faith, but a parallel church, a different religion that eschews the infrangible truths of Divine Revelation and the inspired wisdom of past reliable pontiffs, saints, fathers and doctors of the Church in favor of placating man and bringing a humanistic unity to the world. Father documents through scripture their grave error and shows how the simplicity of the faith taught in the pre-conciliar catechism had it right and so simple and why, simply stated, recognition of the Blessed Trinity and the True Presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist is only possible in the Church He founded as One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic. Since no others meet those criteria, there can be no other means of unlocking eternity as Father explains in The Key to Heaven
Gabriel Garnica's continues his multi-part series on "The Selling of Sodomy" wherein he rightly exposes the insidious agenda underfoot to corrupt America and the world, ultimately souls, depriving them of Heaven because of their depravity. Gabriel reminds us today that the entire equality argument is a smokescreen when it comes to aberrant behavior. It is a sinful lifestyle that those who wish to debase themselves by giving into their basic lusts and inhibitions are trying to justify by forcing through legislation and mythical profiling that equates race and ethnicity with behavior. They forget Who has the final say, Who can magnify their unnatural behavior: The Supernatural Being Who is the ultimate Profiler Who will separate the wheat from the chaff. Those pushing the sodomite agenda don't want people to realize this and so they join in the campaign to rid God from everything believing that denial will make the Creator go away. They're in for a big surprise as Gabriel lays out the facts in his fifth installment Divine Profiling and the Myth of Equality
Gabriel Garnica's fourth installment in his multi-part series on "The Selling of Sodomy" he continues his expose on the insidious agenda underway to turn souls inside out. His hard-hitting essay exposes the enemy's rotting exoskeletal by peeling back the epidermis that has adorned itself in lies, fraud, misconceptions - all thanks to false data fabricated specifically to serve the sodomite agenda. Through this salacious and purely satanical agenda and campaign, the homosexual lobby and manipulators have permeated every facet of society and especially the modern church where sadly, too often priest and pedophile are considered synonymous by many. Thanks to the drastic revolution of Vatican II, the New Order church let down its guard (many ask if this wasn't intended by the infiltrators within) and began preaching tolerance and diversity. And one wonders how this vile sin that cries out to Heaven for vengeance has actually gained "respectability" in many circles today including chanceries? As the Church goes, so goes the world and her enemies knew this in plotting and carrying out the devastation of morals. Today Gabriel enlists the findings of Dr. Jeffrey Satinover to prove the fable of the 'fairies' false in his fourth installment From Mental Disorder to Legal Disorder!

Yesterday he exposed the hypocrisy in Massachusetts state house, today it is Maine and a Republican looney no less who has advocated that if a child is known to be 'homosexual in the womb' - talk about ridiculous - then it should not be aborted. Pro-sodomites are painting themselves into hell's corner and the paint is deadly toxic as Gabriel strips away the viper's varnish to expose the hideous hide of satan. Gabriel exposes the absurdity in his third part They Just Raised The Roof On Absurd Hypocrisy!
The Sanity of Sanctity
Professor Plinio Correa de Oliveira, mentor of Atila Sinke Guimar„es, provides an enlightening treatise and meditation on St. Casimir, regal ruler and patron saint of Poland and Lithuania. The professor emphasizes the importance of this saint for he proved one can live amidst opulence and still strive for sanctity. In fact it was this very system and atmosphere that lended to helping him grow holier, but thanks to the revolutionaries from the Reformation to the French Revolution to the modern revolution of Vatican II that has turned the world on its axis, to win over the people - subjects who prior to these revolutions were happy, content and at peace with God with their role in life - to the lies that monarchs are unfair and looking out only for their own interests in greedy ways; that rules are for those they lord over rather than themselves to observe. That may be true in the modern hierarchy of modern Rome today, but it was not the standard in medieval times. In fact, if such variance occurred it was an exception to the rule of rulers. Thanks to Tradition In Action, Atila provides readers the meaninful insight into this holy ruler of Krakow by his mentor in St. Casimir
The Straight Stuff
Griff Ruby presents the fourth part of "What is your picture" as he continues his series in retracing where Modern Rome broke away from Eternal Rome with Lumen Gentium and its imminent impact that has resounded with the echo of heresy over the past 40 years, causing a dire time of emergency in the Church like no other ever experienced. In this issue he explains how the Law is applicable to this, citing the supreme law - Divine Law which is unchangeable, like unto the bones and vital organs of a body, and Ecclesiastical Law which would be likened to muscles and the skin. The latter is changeable because it does not cut to the core of doctrine while the former is infrangible. He points this out in his fourth installment The Law and How it Applies in These Times of Crisis

As the Church goes, so goes the world and her enemies knew this is plotting and carrying out the devastation of morals. Today Gabriel pinpoints two examples of this dumbed-down Catholic education with two so-called 'Catholic' politicians in Massachusetts who think accepting sodomy is in line with Catholic teaching! The madness in their statehouse equates to an asylum except in the Bay State the inmates are running it! But if they have their way it will be straight-jackets for only the straights while those advocating tolerance and diversity will grow queerer and queerer until only satan will recognize the hideousness of their actions. Gabriel takes the heretics to task in his second installment of this series Massachusetts Mania!

Making Sense of Sensus Catholicus
Father James F. Wathen, the pioneering traditional author of The Great Sacrilege, presents a treatise on the Gospel of St. Luke, chapter 16 on the Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus and what Our Lord truly meant in certifying that the Old Covenant had passed and the New Covenant would take effect once He "descended into hell" - the very "bosom of Abraham" to free the souls languishing there since Adam and Eve. Following that He would rise from the dead, but in this passage, as Father points out, if they will not even believe that, how will they believe other signs. Father points out that this is the case today where nonbelievers and their ideas are given credence at the expense of the truths of the Messias. Jesus shows clearly in this parable that hell is so very final and those who choose to go there have no relief or sympathy. Father explains in his brief commentary sent by Maria Hughes. The Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus
Fiat Voluntas Dei
Timothy Duff has taught Traditional Catholicism for decades. The author of the work The Church is not above Christ, Tim has chosen Fiat Voluntas Dei - "The Will of God be done" as the title for his columns which will now become a regular rotating staple in The Daily Catholic. He is also a consummate expert on Venerable Mary Agreda's masterful work Mystical City of God and ties that in so beautifully with the healing effect of sincere tears, shed by Jesus and His Blessed Mother for us and for the way we have prompted those tears through our sins. To illustrate how powerful tears can be, who can ever forget the magnificent and poignant scene in Mel Gibson's The Passion of The Christ when, at the moment of Christ's death on the cross, we see as through a fish-eye lens the surreal scene from above and only then realize as the watery lens plunges downward that we are inside the tear of the Heavenly Father as it projects closer to earth, splashing upon the ground at the foot of the cross and from Calvary the tsunami effect causes the earth to shake and the temple floor in Jerusalem to be torn in two, symbolizing the end of the Jewish religion and the Old Covenant and the beginning of the New Covenant as God's chosen means for salvation. Yes, tears are powerful as Tim details in his column
Gabriel Garnica responds to the blatant idol worship of man personified in the Academy Awards and points out that it really was a blessing that Mel Gibson and his masterpiece The Passion of The Christ were not nominated for his reward will be great in Heaven.He doesn't need accolades from man, especially those who rail against Christ and His True Church. Gabriel explains how in Sunday's Gospel Our Lord's words "He that is not with Me is against Me" applies to today's society who have done all in their power to reject Him and His sound teachings. Gabriel also highlights how to include Mel's movie would be to expose the rest of the fare as mediocre. Now is that fair?Gabriel illustrates how two other movies are praised for the very things they come up short in and how The Passion puts them both to shame. He shows how Titanic, the only other blockbuster that made a killing at the box office, and a cult film for the bloodthirsty Kill Bill have been linked to The Passion of The Christ and in every way those other two films as well as all the nominees for this year's Oscars can't hold a candle to Mel and his 'little movie' that no one would touch with a ten foot trunk of wood. Gabriel manifests quite clearly the clear purpose Mel conveyed and how those who object are the very same who objected to accepting Christ and His truths. He explains in his column Passing on The Passion is 'their' loss
Echoes of True Catholicism
Dr. Marian Therese Horvat shares concerns about the secretivity surrounding the death of the last Fatima visionary Sister Lucia de Jesus dos Santos. Just as we asked on these pages last week, what are they hiding? so also Marian asks some pertinent questions and suspects with good evidence that Sister Lucia was getting 'bad information' as in false information, as in lies about the state of the church and the world. Marian also offers the conjecture that Sr. Lucia might very well have been silenced and suppressed in light of what her cousin Jacinta had told her before the latter died over 80 years ago: "When the time comes, speak, do not hide yourself." But hiding herself was the very thing she did or rather what the modernists did in hiding her away in a Carmelite convent in Coimbra, Portugal. Since 1970 she had been heavily censored and protected more than a Novus Ordo bishop hiding from the media or Traditional Catholics. What is on Sr. Lucy's computer, what words are in her diary that the modern Vatican institution is so afraid of revealing? What of the continuing corruption of the world and the nonconversion of Russia? Marian points out that the proof is in the pudding. Gone is the intercessor to stay the hand of the Father from spilling forth the Cup of Chastisement that runneth over. Now it's the time when deceit will be revealed, and God's hand will wash clean the decay that has permeated His Church effecting the entire world. Here on earth only those who survive the coming chastisements will know the answers. Marian explains in her column at Tradition In Action Forebodings about the Death of Sister Lucy
"Qui legit, intelligat"
In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Third Sunday of Lent, he packs a wallop in identifying the very problem those who have stayed with the Novus Ordo face today. They are bishopless and priestless for they have condoned the ransacking of traditional forms, especially in the Sacraments of Holy Orders. Father reminds us of the chicanery of the modernists who have done all they can to expunge Pius XII's Apostolic Constitution Sacramentum Ordinis to cover their tracks. Father Louis points out that it is not available anywhere on the web and we are going to do all in our power to procure this Acta Apostolicae Sedis from November 30, 1947 so that all will know the fullness of truth spoken of by Father in his no-nonsense sermon today. These men who have accepted modernism may look like bishops, they may sound like bishops (even though they don't ACT like bishops), but they are NOT bishops for, as Father reveals, their consecrations are not valid. Think about this as talk heats up of the impending Conclave in John Paul II's waning days and realize most all of those entering the Sistine Chapel are not even true cardinals, let alone priests or bishops. What does that portend for the next man who will claim to be pope? The apostasy is so great that it has laid waste to practically the entire conciliar church. Look around you at the ruins. There is scant left to choose from. Had these men been ordained according to the truly Catholic Rite, then, even were they to be the most vile of heretics, they would still be priests, albeit bad ones, but authentic ones. For some that is the case, but for those ordained according to Paul VI's changes, it wouldn't matter if they were in heresy or were the most holiest of men, they still are not properly ordained priests in Christ's One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. As Our Lord states in today's Gospel, "He who is not with Me is against Me." When the laity realize this truth by fleeing from the Novus Ordo Lodges and their Grand Masters in droves, then they will pray all the more earnestly for true bishops. That plea will be heard in Heaven only when NOM presbyters are re-ordained in accordance to the form and matter set in stone by Pius XII and begin to celebrate on a daily basis universally the Mass of All Ages and live the Faith as it has always meant to be lived. Father lays it out in his sermon based on Our Lord's words in Luke 11: 17. A Kingdom Brought to Desolation
