DURING THIS HOLY

Month of the Blessed Sacrament
HOLY THURSDAY     April 13, 2006      Volume 17, no. 90

        On this Holy Thursday we bring you two excellent pieces on the essence of the day. One is an inspired sermon by Father Louis Campbell on the the necessity of the priesthood for the Holy Sacrifice to continue and the other is a redux of Catharine Lamb's piece we run again today on the liturgy of Maundy Thursday and why it is called such as she shares the reason for the Tenebrae. Our regular features will resume shortly after Easter. Because the liturgy of this day is so important, we are only bringing these two articles to you and urge you to go to the Proper for tonight's Holy Thursday Holy Mass and the rituals that follow with Vespers, and the two beautiful, highly symbolic acts of the stripping of the altars, followed by the washing of the feet. We encourage all, if it is available to you, to spend time in adoration this evening and tomorrow morning.

  • "I will take the cup of salvation"
    by Father Louis Campbell
  • The Mandatum of Love
    by Catharine Lamb
    • "My Lord and my God!"

      "Dominus meus et Deus meus!"

      HOC EST ENIM CORPUS MEUM

      HIC EST ENIM CALIX SANGUINIS MEI, NOVI ET AETERNI TESTAMENTI; MYSTERIUM FIDEI; QUI PRO VOBIS ET PRO MULTIS EFFUNDETUR IN REMISSIONEM PECCATORUM

    Holy Mother, pierce me through,
    In my heart each wound renew
    Of my Savior crucified.

    Let me share with you His pain,
    Who for all our sins was slain,
    Who for me in torments died.

    ELEVENTH STATION
    Jesus is nailed to the Cross

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

    Consider Jesus, thrown down upon the cross, He stretched out His arms and offered to His eternal Father the sacrifice of His life for our salvation. They nailed His hands and feet, and then, raising the cross, left Him to die in anguish.

    (Kneel)
    My Jesus, loaded with contempt, nail my heart to Thy feet, that it may ever remain there to love Thee and never quit Thee again. 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.

       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 began our 17th year of publishing with our tenth on the internet, which originated with our publishing the monthly Catholic-Internet Network for nearly two years before debuting The Daily Catholic on November 1, 1997.

    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.

  • "Qui legit, intelligat"
    We bring you a retro column from Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Maundy Thursday's Evening Mass in which he emphasizes importance of the priesthood on the institution of Holy Orders by the Divine Priest and the vital necessity for priests to be as pure and worthy of the call of Melchizedech that, one ordained through the most noble of Sacraments in the carrying out of Christ's charge in Mark 16: 15-16, could fulfill and increase the number of saved souls through his exemplary sacerdotal behavior. This is carried out by virtue of his vow to preserve the Sacred Traditions and Doctrines of Christ's Church and, most vital, the administration of the most Sublime Sacrament in being the alter Christus where he is the only instrument able to carry out the necessary Transubstantiation to offer to the Father the True Presence of Jesus in the unbloody propitiatory Sacrifice of the Mass. Yes, there is nothing more sublime or necessary for Catholics. The world has never understood the sacerdotal nature of the priesthood, but in its ignorance it has greatly misrepresented this most sacred vocation in which the essence is to work counterproductive to worldly goals. The very fact that the priesthood has been so viciously attacked by satan through the unprecedented assaulting of the human vulnerabilities of so many priests and their bishops who have become lax and caused grave scandals makes the road for good, dedicated priests all the more difficult. The true Church needs men who can assimilate their suffering with Christ on the road to Calvary. Why are priests so precious and priceless to the faithful and the preservation of the True Faith? Contrary to the relaxed and, often times anathematical norms of Vatican II, only truly consecrated priests can offer, on behalf of Christ, the cup of salvation containing His Most Precious Body and Blood. Father explains in his sermon "I will take up the cup of salvation"


    Shears and Tears of a Lamb
    As a retro treat, we bring you Catharine Lamb's excellent piece from last year at this time in which she helps us prepare for the beginning of the Easter Triduum by giving us a better perspective of the symbolism and meaning of the rituals of Maundy Thursday and why it is called such, for Maundy means Mandatum which translates to 'Commandment' and this Christ gave us with the institution of the Blessed Sacrament gifting those worthy of His graces His Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity. Catharine also gives us some insight into the Office of Tenebrae and where it originated and its beautiful meaning and customs kept alive from the monks keeping Christ company overnight to Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the side chapel for the faithful to keep watch. Catharine takes us through today's magnificent liturgy practiced for so many centuries by Holy Mother Church. She explains in - The Mandatum of Love
    Gabriel's Clarion
    For this Holy Week we bring you a redux of Gabriel Garnica features from last year on certain reflections for Holy Week in which he focused on the Five Wounds of Christ and, just as the Sorrowful Mother suffered with Her Divine Son, true Catholics cannot help but feel the pains of the five sacred wounds if they are truly Catholic. Gabriel points out that this entails the free will to willingly embrace the Cross and share in the pain of suffering - redemptive suffering - through assimilation of what Jesus went through to a far greater extent on our human part. Gabriel identifies the correlation of each major wound with what Catholics should consider as outrage against their Lord and Savior. Gabriel takes us through the wounds in his reflective column The Five Sacred Wounds We Face
    The VerbumQUO
    Today, Wednesday in Holy Week, also known as Spy Wednesday, editor Michael Cain has chosen as the VerbumQUO for today the two Latin words genu flectátur which comprise the English word "genuflect" in contemplating on the outward sign of reverence extended by Catholics whenever they come into the house of God or are assisting at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Cain takes the reader through the highlights of the Holy Mass to illustrate how reverence and humility play such a pivotal part of the holy sacrifice offered by the priest and the number of times he himself genuflects to Almighty God during the Mass. It is a far cry, as Cain points out, from the novelties of the Novus Ordo which have basically eliminated any need to kneel for the proud have no need to bow down! Oh, but they do! And yet in the conciliar rite, there is nothing to bow to! Oh, how they need the Holy Sacrifice to cleanse them of the false worship they have been swallowed up in which is so suffocating souls. Cain explains in Every Knee Must Bend!
    "Fiat Voluntas Dei"
    On this Tuesday in Holy Week when the evangelist Saint Mark chronicles the deviousness of Judas in the Passion Reading, Timothy Duff asks about another betrayer who has been given a certain status by the apparatchiks he installed to reward him with an honor that he is surely not deserving of, not in the least. Tim shows that any consideration is as much an aberration than giving credence that Judas was only being obedient to what Christ wanted him to do as the gnostics wrote in the infamous Gospel of Judas. Either way both Judas and John Paul II were guilty of betrayal. On this day when the True Church honors the orthodox giant of the Faith Saint Leo the Great, the holy Doctor of the Church, it is an insult to every person who professes to be Catholic to even think of the possibility of Karol Wojtyla even being considered for one second as holy and worthy of even the slightest consideration of canonization. Only to those who embrace the Church of Darkness does such insanity make sense, for it is satan's will to destroy what God established once and for all. Tim doesn't mince words in documenting this fact in his short, but poignant piece Was John Paul II a "Saint"?
    The VerbumQUO
    Today, Tuesday in Holy Week, editor Michael Cain has decided to emphasize what the Gospel Passion Reading of Mark covers and what is front and center the primary means of worship and grace-giving for every Catholic: the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, focusing today's VerbumQUO on the very word sacrificium "sacrifice" actually taken from the Ordinary of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and said by the priest, acting as the alter Christus, seven times during the Holy Mass, replicating the number of times our Lord spoke from the Cross. The emphasis on sacrifice and the spotless Victim, pure Victim, holy Victim, spotless Victim were installed by the great Pontiff - whose feast day is today - St. Leo the Great, though not celebrated because of Holy Week superseding normal feasts this most solemn of weeks. Cain explains in Without the sacrifice of the spotless Victim, there is no Mass! Period!
    Doctors of the Church
    Today is the Feast of the holy Doctor of the Church and Roman Pontiff Saint Leo the Great. The feast is not celebrated this year because Tuesday in Holy Week takes precedence. Nevertheless, the day cannot pass without honoring this phenomenal saint who was vigilant and masterful in all he did from staving off the Arian heresy, to reinstating solid doctrine when the Robbers Council sought to undermine the Faith, to miraculously stopping the "Scourge of God" Attila the Hun in his tracks at the gates of Rome. He was the only Vicar of Christ to convene two major ecumenical councils. Considered the "Codifier of Orthodoxy", he is best remembered as the "Defender of Rome" Such was the fifth century spiritual giant St. Leo the Great Defender of Rome and Codifier of Orthodoxy
    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

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

    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
