DURING
Month of the Blessed Sacrament
MONDAY     April 10, 2006      Volume 17, no. 87

        On this Monday in Holy Week, we begin with a "Gems from the Past" flashback to last Monday in Holy Week when Gabriel Garnica brought readers an interesting perspective on the palm: Though a sacramental, don't place that much emphasis on it for it is the sturdiness and perseverance of the wood - from manger to the cross that sustains authentic Catholicism in the truths and traditions preserved, practiced and passed on. And it is love that keeps traditional Catholics motivated as we reach the final week of Lent, a week ahead which grows steeper by the day in which we all strive to overthrow the wiles of the devil as editor Michael Cain points out the word expugna from today's Introit for today's VerbumQUO, meaning "overthrow" or "expunge" in seeking God's protection and erasing our sins through prayer, penance and good deeds. In addition, Dom Prosper Gueranger inspires us on how we can profit from the example and mystery of Mary Magdalene's actions in today's Gospel.

  • The Palm and the Wood
    by Gabriel Garnica
  • Weapons of Love
    by Michael Cain
  • For the sins of His own nation
    Saw Him hang in desolation
    Till His spirit forth He sent.

    O sweet Mother! Fount of Love,
    Touch my spirit from above
    . Make my heart with yours accord.

    The Women of Jerusalem weep over Jesus

    V. We adore Thee, O Christ, and we bless Thee.
    R. Because by Thy holy Cross, Thou hast redeemed the world.

    Consider how those women wept with compassion at seeing Jesus in so pitiable a state, streaming with blood, as He walked along. But Jesus said to them, "Weep not so much for Me, but for your children."

    (Kneel)
    My Jesus, laden with sorrows, I weep for the sins which I have committed against Thee, because of the pains which they have deserved, and still more, because of the displeasure which they have caused Thee, Who hast loved loved me so much. It is Thy love, more than the fear of hell, which causes me to weep for my sins. My Jesus, I love Thee more than myself; I repent of having offended Thee. Never permit me to offend Thee again. Grant that I may love Thee always, and then do with me what Thou wilt.

    Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the Father



    2006 Nominations continue to be open for the Third Annual Tower of Trent Hall of Honor and igNOMinious gNOMe Hall of Shame

    The deadline has passed for the UGLIES nominations. But readers will have nearly five weeks in which they can nominate the person of their choice who would be a worthy recipient for the noble Tower of Trent Trophy, and 15 days to expose the igNOMinious gNOMe who you feel is among the most incompetent clerics in the conciliar church. Below is the 2006 time-table for "The Good, Bad, and UGLIES" in reverse order:

    • The Tower of Trent Nominations will close on the Feast of Pope St. Pius V, the Pope who codified the infallible dogmatic decrees of the Council of Trent on May 5. Those worthy recipients will be announced beginning on the Feast of the QUEENSHIP OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY.

    • For the IgNOMinious gNOMes Awards, nominations for the sorriest ecclesiastics will extend to Tax Deadline Day on April 15 and be announced, as usual, on Tuesday, May 2 - the feast of St. Athanasius, who stood against the apostates.

      To get an idea of what or who you are nominating, we provide last year's recipients below. To submit your nomination/nominees for 2006, send the names to 2006 Nominations


          
        Because the news and rumors ebb and sway with each news report daily, we provide alternate sources above in order to be - to quote a certain network - "fair and balanced" with the various news-sites NovusOrdoWatch.org, Traditio.com, and Angelqueen, as well as the official SSPX site in case they publish anything of landmark importance. Also we are adding to this list an intriguing site called Whisper in the Loggia which has recently seemed to be quite accurate - perhaps because of the moles within the modern Vatican who have provided reporter Rocco Palmo with information. We in no way endorse Palmo, just merely provide it for you because it seems Palmo uncanningly knows the skivvy well before Zenit can ever put a spin on it. We do this all as a service in the same manner The Daily Catholic strives to give both sides of the story when it comes to Traditional issues.

Your tax-deductible contributions can help save souls. Does that matter to you or would you rather ignore this plea and not worry about helping others? You have a free will, but you also have a duty before God to help those laboring for the Lord in His vineyards. How much each of you can give will determine how many we can reach for the True Faith. Please think about it and pray on how much you can give from your heart. A Reminder: Lent is a time for almsgiving.

       For those who might have missed any features from last week's issues, we provide here a brief synopsis of what you might not have seen. Father Louis Campbell kicked off Passion Sunday with no-holds-barred sermon on the futility of the Novus Ordo service which is not pleasing to God. He documents why only the Traditional Latin Mass remains the continual sacrifice in The Living and the Dead. And speaking of no-holds-barred, Timothy A. Duff gave us all a shot of reality in his short, but poignant piece on St. Paul's words in 2 Thessalonians 2: 10-11 Consenting to Iniquity. We provided two "Gems from the Past" in the middle of the week; on Wednesday, the Feast of Saint Isidore of Seville, we provided a profile on this Guardian and Gardener of the Faith; and on Thursday a redux of Gabriel Garnica's excellent piece just as crucial two years later in Sounds of Cowardice. On Friday John Gregory presented, in his series on the Mysteries of the Rosary, his Meditation on the Fourth Sorrowful Mystery The Carrying of the Cross, and on Saturday we promoted a startling article by Dr. Marian Therese Horvat (that gives credence to an editorial we wrote Heaven Only Knows) in which she provides visual evidence that there were two Sister Lucys (unless the real Sister Lucy underwent an incredible face lift and complete body makeover). Miracles are one thing, but believing that Sister Lucy I is also Sister Lucy II is too much as Marian shows in Two Sister Lucys of Fatima? Throughout the week editor Michael Cain continued to provide a VerbumQUO for each day with abscondit, miserere, praedica, vigilantes, peccavimus, Stabat Mater, and hora from Sunday through Saturday, meaning "He hid, have mercy, preaching, watching, we have sinned, the Mother stood," and "hour."


                           



    In keeping with Christ's assurance in Matthew 7: 19 that "Every tree that yieldeth not good fruit, shall be cut down, and shall be cast into the fire" the disintegration of the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan man-made church is inevitable. The collapse of this synthetic pan-christian religion spawned from Vatican II, which has usurped the True Roman Catholic Church, is evident from the news reports below, the feature articles to the right, our EyeOpeners highlighting certain news stories, and the realization of what the True Church truly teaches on our CREDO & CULTURE Page, and especially in the infrangible Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the true Liturgy for each day of the Church's liturgical year, which we provide daily for readers with the Ordinary and Proper of each Mass in both Latin and English so Catholics may truly continue to practice their Faith and truly KNOW THE FAITH in order to KEEP THE FAITH! Tried and True! Tridentine True!

       Two years after we went all out to promote a film - The Passion of The Christ, we're doing just the opposite this year by imploring all Traditional Catholics to support the Boycott of the fiendish film due out this Spring called The DaVinci Code for it is full of blasphemous deceit. It misconstrues so many things Catholic, and is all built on false premises. The only way for Hollywood to hear is to hit them in the wallet. Stay away and tell others to do the same: Make Ron Howard's latest a booming bust!

    We are proud to be able to provide for our readers the exact Proper and Ordinary of each day's Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in Latin and English for the Traditional Calendar.

     


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

      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 (December 7) and Christmas (December 24). 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 (Saturday before). On days of partial abstinence, which are all the days of Lent which are not complete abstinence days or Sundays, meat and soup or gravy made from meat may be taken only once a day at the principal meal.

       Everyone over 21 and 59 years of age is bound to observe the law of fast. The days of fast are all the days in Lent, all days of partial abstinence 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, consult your parish priest or confessor.

  • Gabriel's Clarion
    We begin Holy Week with a "Gems from the Past" by Gabriel Garnica on reflections for Holy Week beginning with an aftermath meditation of Palm Sunday. The Palms have been distributed in the sacramental nature intended, but we should not place too much significance on them as Gabriel Garnica pointed out a year ago for Monday in Holy Week. We repeat it here as he examines the properties and symbolism, proving the temporary status of the palm which more readily replicates the whole concept of the New Order - the conciliar church - 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


    The VerbumQUO
    Editor Michael Cain has chosen for today's The VerbumQUO for Monday in Holy Week, chosen by editor Michael Cain, is "expúgna" which is the Latin demonstrative verb for "overthrow" or "expunge" taken from today's Introit for Monday in Holy Week - Judica, Domine in which the Psalmist David cries out to the Lord to "overthrow them that fight against me." What martyr has not prayed this plea while still praying for their persecutors' conversion? They know love and forgiveness will overthrow our fiercest enemy and expunge sin from their souls. Cain, with the help of the venerable Dom Prosper Gueranger's words from The Liturgical Year, illustrates how we can expunge our own sins and pray for those who do not love God, do not believe, do not trust and do not adore Him. We can be the expungers who will erase their unbelief through prayer, penance and our good example. Cain explains in Weapons of Love
    "Qui legit, intelligat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Palm Sunday, he revisits the passage of Isaias in which the holy prophet foretells the Passion and Death of Jesus Christ, the promised Messias. Father shows that just as the children of Israel proclaimed their hosannas, they proved to be hollow, for when push came to shove, they denied His deity and joined in the chorus documented in Matthew 27: 22, "His blood be upon us, and upon our children." So also today, despite the fact our Lord bore theirs and our iniquities, He is lauded today as a man of the world Who really didn't even exist as His modern persecutors, egged on by His everlasting adversary satan, spew lie after lie about their theories and hypotheses that seek to undermine the very message He sends us in the sacred ceremonies we observe today and throughout Holy Week. These modern liars and blasphemers, like the perfidious Jewish leaders of our Lord's time, plot and scheme to eliminate Him from our memories by skewering the truth and posturing fables that ridicule the sacrosanct and reduce the God-Man, the Savior of the world, to nothing less than a desperate figure whose paramount fear is that man will discover He is a fraud. Oh, what blasphemy! And yet with the rash of material raising its ugly head in these very times from the "Gospel of Judas" to The DaVinci Code to The Jesus Papers to what not, atheism and the evil one meet to seek revenge that will never be theirs. Father explains in his sermon for Palm Sunday. "He shall bear their iniquities"
    The VerbumQUO
    Editor Michael Cain has chosen for today's VerbumQUO for Palm Sunday the Latin noun "ramos" which is the Latin plural noun for "branches", taken from several of the passages for today's ceremonies for Palm Sunday; for it was the branches of palms and olive that are symbolic of this day and divide the Old and the New, with the former fulfilled in all that would unfold in this coming Holy Week, as the new branches would sprout more buds and fruit, and the old, and insincere, wither away. There is both joy and sorrow; the joy of the hosannas that will soon turn to utter sorrow, not only for the cruel treatment of our Lord that would culminate with the crucifixion of the Messias, but in today's attitude that Christ is irrelevant for modern-advanced-man as the heresies of old raise their ugly heads with even more vehemence than ever before. Even the beautiful words of today's Proper do not deter the hard-hearted and obdurate souls who seek to eliminate His triumph for they have forfeited to the horns of the unicorn as Cain explains in Hosannas hooked on the horns of dilemma
    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica tackles the whole issue of immigration and the latest Pied-Piper of Perdition who comes cloaked in red and roars out from LA with political polemics that have lost the salt of salvation and care only for temporal rewards. For him, who has sold out to mammon, we can only pray; for the immigrants he should be speaking out for are the defenseless, innocent unborn who conciliar potentate Roger Mahony cannot be bothered with. Neither can he be concerned for the spiritual welfare of the faithful of Southern California who have been so betrayed by this comforter of sodomites, perverts, powerful Democrats, and Hollywood honchos. By his actions and words, it is no doubt he is a definite enemy of Tradition; ergo an adversary to Christ and His Church. Gabriel explains in his column The Ultimate Immigrants
    The VerbumQUO
    The VerbumQUO for today is "hora" the Latin noun for "hour", taken from today's Gospel of St. John 12 for Saturday in Passion Week. The hour is near; this is so as Jesus announces: "The hour is come that the Son of Man should be glorified." Tomorrow Hosannas; hosannas which will turn to hisses as the week labors on. It is time to watch with Him for we know not the day nor the hour. Editor Michael Cain explains the significance, with help from the venerable Dom Prosper Gueranger, in seeing the blueprint laid out for the coming week in To spend each day at least one hour with Thee
    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 VerbumQUO
    The VerbumQUO for today is "Stabat Mater" meaning "The Mother stood" or or "The Mother was standing" and is the well-known 13th century Gregorian Chant Hymn, taken from today's Sequence Stabat Mater for the first of two feasts in the liturgical year for Our Lady of Sorrows; today being the greater double Feast of the Seven Dolors. It is the appropriate portal to the liturgy from here to Good Friday for Mary leads the way on the path that must wind up Calvary to reach the Door of Redemption. To His Blessed and Sorrowful Mother, Christ has given the key to open that Portal. Let Mary lead us and show us the combination that unlocks the door, possible only by the ultimate Sacrifice of the Cross. Cain shares the insight of the venerable Benedictine Abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger and the holy Doctor of the Church St. Benedict in illustrating today's VerbumQUO in A Mother's Love that Knows No Bounds
    Echoes of True Catholicism
    On this Feast of the Seven Dolors, we present an eye-opening piece by Dr. Marian Therese Horvat filed two days ago on Tradition in Action which brings into vivid question the whole Fatima facade that has been perpetrated on the public by the conciliar church and must cause the Blessed Mother so much more sorrow. What Marian reveals that there could very well have been two Sister Lucys and questions should resound on what happened to the original Sister Lucy. It brings to mind her own words: "diabolical disorientation"; and one can sense the devil in the data Marian provides as well as pictures which should leave plenty, plenty of doubt if that was really the real Sister Lucia Santos who passed away last year. The fact that we have been desensitized to think the Sr. Lucia photographed for the public is really the same person, has only added to the scheme, but Marian's deductions, photographs, and questions should raise many more questions just as we wrote on these pages last year in Only Heaven Knows. So also only Heaven knows, but hopefully, because the lies from the modern Vatican do not add up, Marian's revelations and very logical conclusions should prompt some kind of investigation. Yet, considering the ones doing the investigating most probably will be the very foxes that invaded the henhouse, don't look for much honesty from modern Rome. After all, we haven't seen it in well over 40 years. Despite carrots that recently bear the facade of traditionalism, it's only orange coloring and the raw truth is that the rest of the carrot is rotten. The facts are that the progressivists have no intention of giving up their lair. But Marian's article should definitely rustle their fur as you'll see in her column at Tradition In Action: Two Sister Lucys of Fatima?
    Faithful to Tradition
    John Gregory continues his comprehensive meditation on the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Holy Rosary today. Scourged, berated, whipped, crowned with thorns, mocked, and blasphemed, Christ, the Lamb of God, has accepted the heavy wood. The time continuum between the Praetorium where the Jews screeched 'Crucify Him!', and the moment He arrived at the summit of Calvary could well have taken thirty minutes to an hour and a half. In this time, we have in the Via Crucis, several lessons we can garner from this interval, including His reunion with His Sorrowful Mother, the aid of Simon of Cyrene, the gentle charity of Veronica, the weeping of the women of Jerusalem, and three cruel falls along the way; each more crushing and exhausting. Despite all this, the question arises: do we have the spiritual stamina to keep up with Him? John shares his thoughts and Scriptural passages in meditating on the Fourth Sorrowful Mystery during this Passiontide. The Carrying of the Cross
    The VerbumQUO
    The VerbumQUO for today is "peccávimus" meaning "we have sinned" - an admission by each and every one of us of our fallen human nature, taken from today's Introit for Thursday in Passion Week from Daniel 3: 31 and carried through in the Gospel from St. Luke 7: 36-50 on the visible act of repentance by Mary Magdalene. It is a lesson for all as editor Michael Cain seeks to emphasize with the inspired words of the venerable Benedictine Abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger. In this series Cain seeks to identify one key word and sum up that word to help the faithful focus on the message Holy Mother Church conveys so the faithful can better understand the magnificent correlation of Sacred Scripture in the Daily Proper of the Mass. It is also our hope that in choosing the Latin word with its meaning and etymology, more will be attuned to hearing Latin read at the altar and better comprehend the beauty of the Mother tongue. As we gear up for the end of Passion Week, Cain explains today's VerbumQUO in The Sole Formula of Soul Success!
    Gabriel's Clarion
    As a special "Gems from the Past" we bring you an article from two years ago in which Gabriel Garnica sounded the clarion on the silence that is growing more deafening by the day. He examines the paradoxes of society which, as he states, has outSodomed the Sodom of old. The facts verify that. He tries to stir the consciences of Catholics everywhere to get off their duffs, to be the Lions of Right and Truth in roaring forth with a passion for Christ and His infrangible teachings. He asks what ever happened to the fervor, valor and zeal of the saints of yesteryear? They have compromised with the icons of idiocy that pervade civilization today, molding them into mute muppets of mammon. Unfortunately, the echo of ennui and disinterest reverberates through souls - an eerie siren of the lukewarm of which the Lord has promised, in Apocalpyse 3: 16, that He would vomit from His mouth; for from the mouths of the lukewarm come the Sounds of Cowardice
    The VerbumQUO
    The VerbumQUO for today is "vigilántes" meaning "watching" or "vigilance" taken from today's Gospel of St. Luke for the Mass of a Confessor, Os justi for today's feast of Saint Vincent Ferrer, the angel of the judgment who preached vigilance and left a holy fear in the faithful that they should, as St. Paul entreats, work out their salvation "in fear and trembling." In this series editor Michael Cain seeks to identify one key word and sum up that word to help the faithful focus on the message Holy Mother Church conveys so the faithful can better understand the magnificent correlation of Sacred Scripture in the Daily Proper of the Mass. It is also our hope that in choosing the Latin word with its meaning and etimology, more will be attuned to hearing Latin read at the altar and better comprehend the beauty of the Mother tongue. In today's Cain packs a wallop in trying to wake up the lukewarm from their sonambulance and be ever vigilant for we know not the time nor the hour. Cain lays out the facts in Don't Wait to Watch!
    Doctors of the Church
    As a tribute to today's saint, the holy Bishop and Doctor of the Church Saint Isidore of Seville, we present a "Gems from the Past" of our series on the Doctors of the Church first presented here four years ago. St. Isidore is, by some, regarded as the "Patron Saint of the Internet." And though, needless to say, he knew nothing of the fiber-optic world or the world wide web, the truths he spread will continue long after high technology has become obsolete for his domain was Christ's and Isidore was so instrumental in planting the seeds of the uncompromising True Faith in his beloved Spain where he stifled heresy and converted the Arians, as well as staving off the curse of the crescent moon which had invaded Iberia. Thanks to the dedication and doctrines preached by this holy Doctor, he paved the way for the glorious fruits of conversion that transformed the entire world, especially in the Western Hemisphere. He was truly the Guardian and Gardner of the Faith
    The VerbumQUO
    Editor Michael Cain has taken the Latin Verbum and Quotidianum, which mean respectively "Word" and "Daily", and coined the word "VerbumQUO" for the title of this series by contracting quotidianum to quo and running it together as Verbumquo; thus the "Daily Word", as in the sum of the message, the 'quotient', if you will. This is intended to identify one key word and sum up that word to help the faithful focus on the message Holy Mother Church conveys so the faithful can better understand the magnificent correlation of Sacred Scripture in the Daily Proper of the Mass. It is also our hope that in choosing the Latin word with its meaning and etimology more will be attuned to hearing Latin read at the altar and better comprehend the beauty of the Mother tongue. The VerbumQUO for today is "prædica" meaning "preach", taken from today's Epistle of Saint Paul to Timothy and the Gospel of St. Matthew for the Mass In medio Ecclesiae for a holy Doctor of the Church, which Saint Isidore was, a holy bishop who, unlike today's sorry pretenders, preached the word and preached against heresy, especially the infidel of Islam to protect his beloved Seville and help lay the foundations for Catholic Spain. What are we doing to lay the foundation for true Catholicism? We need to preach in season and out of season, reprove, entreat, rebuke with all patience and doctrine. Cain explains in Words without Conviction and Truth are Hollow!
    "Fiat Voluntas Dei"
    We are delighted that Timothy Duff has worked his way out from behind a backlog of work and duties to once again begin providing articles for Daily Catholic readers. For his first one since July last year, he advises a short dose, a shot in the arm if you will, so the reader can absorb the simplicity and reality of the words of St. Paul in 2 Thessalonians. They are an omen to what we are faced with today with the conciliar church of Vatican II, a false religion which Paul warned of. Now Tim is warning those who, to this point, have claimed inculpable ignorance. No longer. They get their shot today. If they follow the advice of the Doctors of the Church beginning with Christ and His "Doctor of the Gentiles" St. Paul, they'll be fine. If they continue to listen to "the operation of error, to believe a lie" they will have hell to pay as Tim points out so succinctly and emphatically in his short column Consenting to Iniquity
    The VerbumQUO
    Editor Michael Cain has taken the Latin Verbum and Quotidianum, which mean respectively "Word" and "Daily", and coined the word "VerbumQUO" for the title of this series by contracting quotidianum to quo and running it together as Verbumquo; thus the "Daily Word", as in the sum of the message, the 'quotient', if you will. This is intended to identify one key word and sum up that word to help the faithful focus on the message Holy Mother Church conveys so the faithful can better understand the magnificent correlation of Sacred Scripture in the Daily Proper of the Mass. It is also our hope that in choosing the Latin word with its meaning and etimology more will be attuned to hearing Latin read at the altar and better comprehend the beauty of the Mother tongue. The VerbumQUO for today is "Miserére" from today's Opening Introit from Psalm 55: 2 for God to "Have mercy." It is His infinite Mercy that He makes available to the Ninevites in today's Epistle and to the Jews in today's Gospel. Where the former complied and were rewarded, the latter stubbornly remain in their pride, eschewing the flowing rivers of living water. Cain explains in The Flowing Rivers of Living Water
    "Qui legit, intelligat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Passion Sunday, he concentrates on today's Epistle of St. Paul to the Hebrews in which the Apostle affirms that all good works are fruitless without the proper offering of the Spotless Victim in the continual sacrifice. No burnt offering or animal sacrifices will appease God; it is only by blood, the Blood of the Immolated Lamb of God, that man can be redeemed. Only through Jesus Christ can man attain eternal salvation, not through Buddha, Mohammed, Hare Krishna or Wicca, not through just saying "Lord, I am saved" but by faith and works. These are carried out only in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, infallibly perpetuated by the Apostles and set in stone for all time by the infallible decree Quo Primum by Pope St. Pius V "in perpetuity." The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass stands apart as the only worthy sacrifice - a living memorial to God, whereas all other offerings are dead to God as St. Paul reasserts in today's Epistle. The dead works of the Old Law replicate the dead works of today's Novus Ordo and so many are deprived of grace and the sacraments because they do not have the true sacrifice, but rather the "abomination of desolation" foretold by Christ in Matthew 24: 15 in which Father further provides notes from the Haydock Commentary of the Douay-Rheims Bible, which confirms the new mass as such. Father laments how many parishes around the world are void of the True Sacrifice, void of valid priests, and void of true Successors of the Apostles, yay, even void of a true Successor of Peter. Father lays out the bitter truth in his sermon The Living and the Dead
    The VerbumQUO
    Editor Michael Cain has taken the Latin Verbum and Quotidianum, which mean respectively "Word" and "Daily", and coined the word "VerbumQUO" for the title of this series by contracting quotidianum to quo and running it together as Verbumquo; thus the "Daily Word", as in the sum of the message, the 'quotient', if you will. This is intended to identify one key word and sum up that word to help the faithful focus on the message Holy Mother Church conveys so the faithful can better understand the magnificent correlation of Sacred Scripture in the Daily Proper of the Mass. It is also our hope that in choosing the Latin word with its meaning and etimology more will be attuned to hearing Latin read at the altar and better comprehend the beauty of the Mother tongue. The VerbumQUO for today is "abscóndit" from today's Gospel from the context that 'Jesus "hid" Himself and went out from the temple.' It is carried through with the traditional custom of covering the Crucifix and all statues and paintings with the purple shroud to visibly remind us of this time of Passiontide. Cain explains in Time of Hide and Seek
    Catholic PewPOINT
    On this April Fools' Day, editor Michael Cain weighs in how the faithful have been so hoodwinked by the conciliar con-artists and will continue to be bamboozled until they learn their Faith. For many, despite the spin put on John Paul II's death last year by the Vaticanista modernists, believe April 1st is the anniversary of his passing. Ironically it is so appropriate considering what a fool he made of himself and the Faith during his tenure. But the modernists have a long history of deceiving and spinning, of shystering and scamming. If you know your Faith you won't be fooled by the con-artists and flim-flam men posing as prelates of the conciliar church, trying to sell tolerance of sodomy and universal salvation for the sake of man. If you know your Faith, you're not going to get stuck with worthless swampland where the serpent is so at home slithering about from diocese to diocese, from chancery to curia, from cartel to casbah, all to cash in his marks. If there is anything to remember on this April Fools Day, it is the foolishness of believing the conciliarists. To do so is pure folly! That is the gist of today's editorial for April Fools' Day for The Great Hoax Continues

The VerbumQUO for today is "Sitiéntes" from today's Opening Introit translated "All you that thirst." The theme of being quenched is carried throughout today's Proper with the promise of the Lord to Sion in the Epistle and the truth of Christ's testimony in today's Gospel, soundly rejected by the Jews then and still today. We can only quench our thirst at the Font of divine Mercy and this First Saturday is an excellent time to take that step in the confessional. Cain explains in Font of Truth and Tradition


    Faithful to Tradition
    John Gregory continues his comprehensive meditation on the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Holy Rosary today. Christ, the Lamb of God, is brought before Pilate seemingly beaten and having been subjected to ridicule and mockery with the cruel crown of thorns. At any time He could have ripped that piercing tiara from His head and struck down His persecutors and emerged in man's eyes victorious over the Romans and Jews, but He was the God-Man, come to redeem us through love, not hate; exhibited with holy Humility, not pride. Just as the Jews cried out in pride to patronize Pilate "We have no king but Caesar," so also we, who are true sons of God, must, in all humility, state unequivocally: "We have no King but Jesus." Where He is mocked, we offer humble prayer of reparation and expiation for these terrible sins against the Incarnate Word so cruelly tortured and disfigured. John shares his thoughts to meditate on for the Third Sorrowful Mystery during Lent. The Crowning of Thorns

The VerbumQUO for today is "lacrimatus" from today's Gospel for "wept" as in "And Jesus wept" for a lacrimose theme is carried throughout today's Proper for the weeping of those who were dead and now alive, replicating the sinner who was dead and through grace, is now alive.

The VerbumQUO for today is "tolle" the demonstrative verb for "take up", taken from today's Epistle on this Thursday of the Fourth Week of Lent to show the prefigurement of Christ in Eliseus. The theme of taking up the Faith, being lifted up in grace by the Holy Ghost is carried throughout today's Proper as a follow-up to yesterday's Proper for the Feria of the Great Scrutiny. It is a reinforcement to catechumens and the baptized alike to "take up" the life of grace by embracing our crosses for there can be no Resurrection without the Cross. Cain explains in Take up the Cross!

    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

    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:

    "Unjust laws are, properly speaking, NO LAWS!"
    His Eminence Saint Robert Cardinal Bellarmine, Doctor of the Church
