Month of the Sacred Passion
MONDAY     February 13, 2006      Volume 17, no. 31

    We begin a week of Ferias for the Time of Septuagesima. We are just under 9 weeks away from the glorious Paschal Time, but just as a mother-to-be must go through 9 months of labor, so also we prepare for our labor during this time when the last 6 weeks (Lent) will ask much more of us in prayer, penance and self-sacrifice. That, when united to God's holy Will, is the ultimate gift we can offer God which will produce in us and others greater graces when we rejoice at the 'birth' of the Resurrection and can once again say, "Alleluia." Until then, we must put away the celebration and, in the spirit of Septuagesima, prepare for self-denial and giving our all to God. Another spirit is the subject of Griff Ruby's column today and it coincides with the much ballyhooed curia meeting of Benedict XVI and his cohorts as they meet to discuss the SSPX. Griff has the answer to what must be done, but doubts very much Benedict would ever take such excellent advice.

  • The Council and its Spirit by Griff Ruby
    •    On this day when Benedict XVI meets with his curia, we would be wise to follow the advice of Saint Paul in his Epistle all week from I Corinthians 9: "I so fight, not as one beating the air: but I chastise my body, and bring it into subjections, lest perhaps when I have preached to others, I myself should become a castaway."

          Because the news and rumors ebb and sway with each release, we are providing 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. We do so as a service in the same manner The Daily Catholic strives to give both sides of the story when it comes to Traditional issues.

          One thing we want to caution all sides and that is Christian charity and not to set themselves up as experts. Too many are rushing to judgment on both sides of the coin and what is being forgotten in the equation is prayer, and a reminder not to ever, ever trust the devil. For that reason, we at The Daily Catholic hope the Society is sincere when they say no compromise will be made. The best advice comes from Thursday's Epistle of Saint Paul who says:

        "I charge thee, before God and Jesus Christ, Who shall judge the living and the dead, by His coming and His kingdom: preach the word: be instant in season, out of season: reprove, entreat, rebuke in all patience and doctrine. For there shall be a time when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears, and will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables. Be thou vigilant, labor in all things, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill thy ministry. Be sober" (2 Timothy 4: 3-7).

         Again we repeat: The whole thing comes down to one constant none of us should ever forget: If you always tell the truth, you're bulletproof. Let us pray for all sides - including the modernist apostates that they will realize the key is the doctrine and disavow Vatican II and all the garbage that came with it. Let us also pray for those such as the SSPX boldly going into the enemy's lair. Before they would ever take the plunge and fall prey to the trap being laid by the conciliarists, listen for the quack because if it sounds like a duck, looks like a duck and walks like a duck, it's most probably a duck. So, as a prayerful caution to the leaders of the Society, watch your head and your backside. In other words: Duck!

    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!

  • The STRAIGHT STUFF
    Griff Ruby brings the reader an insight on why Benedict's supposed wishes to restore the Latin Mass are just the tip of the iceberg in doing the right thing before God. Today Benedict XVI meets with his curia to discuss, among other matters, what kind of concessions modern Rome could 'give' the Society of Saint Pius X in erasing the conciliar church's blackballing of Archbishop Lefebvre. Before he even begins to broach the subject with his curia, which are not expected to be very receptive, Benedict has to realize it's not just the Mass that needs to be restored to all its beauty as it was in 1958, but it is the Council and all that followed that needs to be shelved, lock, stock and barrel; in other words, exorcised of its 'spirit' that has haunted souls for well over 40 years. Griff explains in his column The Council and its Spirit


    "Qui legit, intelligat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Septuagesima Sunday, he lends a voice of reason and calm to a world gone mad; whether it be maniacal Muslims mobbing the streets throughout three continents supposedly incensed over the silly excuse of a cartoon in a seemingly harmless Danish newspaper to liberalist factions badmouthing conservative camps and vice versa in politics, religion and, yes, even in traditional circles. The devil is stirring up hate everywhere and it is easy to get caught up in the wave of emotion. But that is not living as a true Catholic and Father warns us to apply the brakes on our feelings and remember Christ's words to love our enemy and do good to them who do us evil. We don't have to like our enemy, but we must love them and the best way to love anyone who might foster hate in our heart is to lay our sinful heart in the Most Sacred and Immaculate Hearts and ask Jesus to wash our sins and our human feelings of anxiety and antipathy in and by His Most Precious Blood during this month of the Most Sacred Passion as we begin the Season of Septuagesima. We cannot be pure of heart unless we condition ourselves to reign in our emotions and trust through Faith to always do His holy Will as we Hope for God's mercy through the trusting Sacrament of Penance, combined with prayer and self-denial in order for our Charity to grow, so that indeed we can be numbered among His chosen ones from the many who have been called. Father explains in his sermon. "With what measure you measure"
    Gabriel's Clarion
    In honor of today's 148th Anniversary of the Apparitions of Our Lady of Lourdes, Gabriel Garnica shares one of the greatest love letters we could send Jesus and Mary - the Angelic Salutation: The Hail Mary. He presents this perfect prayer and why it is so perfect, why it embodies all that God wanted to impart in the Dogma of Mary as Advocate, CoRedemptrix, and Mediatrix of all graces. This praye rsays it all and in the simple Ave Maria we express our love for and dependence on Jesus and Mary and, because of our sincerity, They hear and answer our prayers as God so deigns, not necessarily what we want. That is the beauty of the prayer for it was not necessarily what Mary wanted when she said "Yes" to the Archangel Gabriel, but "Thy will be done." Gabriel points to how the first part of the prayer is of honor and praise and comes from Holy Writ, while the second part is our plea to Mary for her intercession and to help us reach the Heavenly shore, thus acknowledging Her role in redemption. Gabriel explains in his column for this special Double Major feast with The Ave's Have It
    Symphony of Suffering
    In preparation for the Time of Septuagesima this weekend, Cyndi Cain presents a poignant piece, short and sweet but to the point. She shares with all a recent letter received from a solitary, sincere prisoner and his heartfelt sacrifice. His words should shake all of us to take seriously Christ's charge to feed His sheep and be good stewards of His wilting vineyard. So many of us take for granted that others are providing the financial assistance to help non-profit traditional apostolates such as SANCTUS and The Daily Catholic, and assuming such, many take the free ride, logging on often with nary a thought of the expense it takes to put out a publication of this caliber. The fact that a destitute inmate is willing to give his entire monthly stipend that others can hear the truth should shame every reader to examine their conscience and ask themselves if they are doing enough to help, not only this apostolate, but their local traditional priest, traditional community and traditional publications/sources which focus on the unmitigated Catholic Truth and stand as uncompromising bright beacons of hope that the True Faith will be preserved and more souls saved in a swirling secular sea that has so twisted the truth. Cyndi puts it so succinctly in her letter about a letter "Lord, Remember me...".
    Faithful to Tradition
    In preparation for Lent, John Gregory resumes his series on deciphering what is Catholic and what is not Catholic today. To those who truly know the Faith, it should be only too obvious. Sadly, due to the fact so many do not, they are blinded by the secular spin. Nowhere is this more noticeable than in today's mores and culture in which modesty takes a holiday as one wades through a jungle of temptations day in and day out in the workplace and elsewhere. Custody of the eyes, ears and mouth can go a long way in curbing concupiscence, but knowing why one must strive for purity of body, mind and soul is the key to attaining true happiness. The devil will do all he can to prevent one from understanding this and lure souls away through rationalization and gratification. He knows what he offers is fleeting and leads to residence with him. The question John asks is whether the reader realizes that? John offers advice that is in accord with Church teaching on curbing our appetites by avoiding the near occasions of sin lest we fall into temptation and the clutches of the devil who never sleeps. John lays out the guidelines in his second installment on Modesty in Part Two of The Devil Never Sleeps.
    Doctors of the Church
    Today is the Double Feast of Saint Cyril of Alexandria and so, reaching back to the summer of 2002, we bring you a Gems from the Past reduct of a profile of this eleventh Doctor of the Church chronologically. Saint Cyril was considered the "Defender of Theotokos" - the dogma of Mary as Mother of God. As many bishops in the early centuries, he was used and duped by the Arian prelates, but the Holy Ghost won out and rather than caving to the heretics, this Doctor became one of Holy Mother Church's staunchest defenders and presided over the Third Ecumenical Council - the Council of Ephesus. He stood tall when all about him were caving to heresy, mainly because of his sincere unyielding devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, honoring her as Christ asks us to honor His Mother. Serving as the Patriarch of Alexandria and effectively squashing Nestorianism, Saint Cyril has become known in Church annals as the holy Doctor of the Church also called the Defender of Theotokos
    Gabriel's Clarion
    The Annual UGLIES Awards are just around the corner and Gabriel Garnica informs the reader about a candidate who could well be in the running. True to the name of the region where liberals abound north of the Golden Gate, a progressive polyanna by the name of Carol Marin has taken Chicago by storm and therein is the warning for this Chicago-based 'Catholic' Journalist is the Poster Child for What Ails the Church. From the city with broad shoulders - Frank Sinatra's kind of town, Chicago - Marin wields her media might. Like the lyrics of one of Sinatra's songs, Carol Marin has done it her way, rejecting the dogmatic teachings of Holy Mother Church to advance the liberal agenda which embraces abortion and sodomy. She attacks Judie Brown's ALL organization for taking Illinois Senator Dick Durbin to task for not living his Catholic faith. Evidently it also struck a chord in Marin's conscience or she wouldn't have been so quick to not only counter attack, but even bait the President into partaking in the propaganda project of 2006: Brokeback Mountain. Why is it that Mel Gibson's critics have turned out to be the promoters of queer porn? Gabriel shares the answers in his column An ill Wind Blows in the Windy City
    The STRAIGHT STUFF
    Griff Ruby focuses on the one target that remains fair game to anyone who wants to take potshots with whatever weapons they have, no holds barred. It is all about adhering to authority; not authority formed by man, but that founded and elevated by God. Down through the ages, the One Authority of the Church Jesus Christ established has stood alone as the one most persecuted. This Authority, suffering the slings and arrows from those who think man has a better idea, has remained steadfast despite its attackers who have continued to turn a blind eye to the eyes of Faith by aiming at the bullseye of Truth. In their heart, the apostate archers know they're wrong, but still they fire away at True Catholicism. Yes, the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church remains the only target that is fair game to assault. Why is it that the only ones who respect this Authority, namely the Traditional Bishops, are most cautious in overstepping their boundaries? The Answer: Total respect and awe for what Christ has established. The SSPX bishops would do well to remember that before letting down their guard or giving away the store. Griff explains in his column on Authority
    Catholic PewPOINT
    The 40th Super Bowl and all the useless commerce accompanying it are yesterday's news, but still the frogs continue to wallow on the stove, allowing the conciliar chefs to turn up the heat. What us worry? Not when we continue to be dulled into bobbing 'yes' toads to whatever Modern Rome wants. Editor Michael Cain sounds the siren to all on the hotstove. If you don't take action soon, it's going to be too late. He equates the mediocrity of the game and commercials to our acceptance of anything but excellence, including compromising our doctrines to please man. Who would have thought the Society of St. Pius X would ever have even considered such a thought? But that is what more and more we fear as confirmation continues to surface as to Benedict XVI's invite to the SSPX: "Come into the parlor" said the spider to the fly. It does not bode well for the traditional movement but it is exactly what Modern Rome has in mind: Divide and conquer. They will too if the frogs who should know better don't start realizing that it's getting too hot for anyone to even consider staying in the conciliar kitchen for soon, very soon, the fahrenheit will reach The Boiling Point!
    "Qui legit, intelligat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Fifth Sunday After Epiphany, he gets down to basics in warning about what our Lord warned of in His parable of the enemy sower of cockle amongst the wheat. Father points out that because the conciliar church - the false religion that has eclipsed the True Church - has not been been a good gardener of souls and actually has been an accomplice in planting the bad seeds, an unbelievable abundance of wheat has withered, choked off from grace over the past half century. Only with the protective garment of grace can one fend off the sharp barbs of compromise with the contemporary 'values' the world has embraced today. If souls are not careful, these prickly thorns of sin pierce the shield of grace and make a soul vulnerable to the bland - the lukewarmness that will condemn souls per the Lord's wake up call in Apocalypse 3: 15-16. The result: the ravages of hell, sucking in the poisonous pollen of worldly things that make the wheat more vulnerable to infection that brings about total corruption. If we want to assure that our stalks will grow stronger and stay pure in this field of suffocating cockle, we must ignore the lure of the world, the flesh and the devil and remember Him Who suffered and died for us and never take our eyes off that Prize. Truly the "wages of sin are death" and if we do not uncompromisingly put our stock on Him Who conquered death and sin, we will fall prey to the weeds and become slaves to the enemy who oversowed the cockle among the wheat. Father explains in his sermon. The Good, the Bad, and the Bland
    Gabriel's Clarion
    While the masses are preparing for Super Sunday and most missing Holy Mass, Gabriel Garnica digs beneath the hype to not only explain the strategy that football fans understand, but to take it a step further in laying out the game plan for the real "Super" Bowl. XL is the Roman Numeral of Sunday's Super Bowl between the Seattle Seahawks and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Forty Years! While the NFL has had unprecedented temporal success, God's Mystical Bride has suffered the slings and arrows of apostasy for 4 decades. But in the end, the XL size of God's mercy will deliver His Church from the grip of the world, the flesh and the devil. Now that will be Super! With Christ calling the plays, sent in by the Holy Ghost and fortified by the defensive stalwart of the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church, our opponent is much more formidable than any human foe. Gabriel shares the metaphor of the gridiron battle for souls, beginning with our own in preserving Tradition and keeping the Faith. He explains in his column The Only Super Bowl That Counts
    Making Sense of Sensus Catholicus
    Father James F. Wathen, the pioneering traditional author of The Great Sacrilege, shares some questions from an e-mailer and makes no bones about the fact that the traditional answers must never be ambiguous or patronizing, but always express the unadulterated truth. He enunciates in black and white the certain answers that many may not have heard before about tackles questions about the Indult, 'Natural Family Planning', and why attending the Novus Ordo even for funerals or weddings is wrong because it recognizes the sacrilege that gravely offends God. These and a few other questions from a curious e-mailer compose the body of his article for this week as he continues to recuperate and pray. Father answers the queries in his article this week we have called In Defense of the Deposit of the Faith
    Faithful To Tradition
    John Gregory continues his comprehensive meditation on the Joyful Mysteries of the Holy Rosary presenting today, on this Feast of both the Presentation of the Child Jesus and the Purification of His Blessed Mother in the Temple, that marvelous mystery of obedience and submission to the law in total humility. John illustrates a renewed perspective of Mary's role in salvation in how her life parallels her holy obedience to all God has asked. Though her divine Child would be submissive to her as an obedient, loving Son for the next 30 years, it was here, 40 days after His birth that Mary followed the letter of the Jewish Law not only to present Him to the Jews as the Messiah, so recognized by Simeon, but also for Mary to obediently go through the rite of purification in the eyes of man - though she already was the purest vessel ever created by the Almighty, free of original sin. In a sense, for the rest of us born with Original Sin, her submission was the precursor for the Sacrament of Penance. The Fourth Joyful Mystery: The Presentation
    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica brings us an article on the media mediums who think they can forecast hits with the terrible fare they try to pass off. Cancellation after cancellation just dulls their senses. It's a new month and dollars to donuts the networks will fill February with more inane programming tripe and try to perfect lucifer 101 in endeavoring to indoctrinate the masses that good is now bad and bad is oh, so good. They tried to tell us that with Joan of Arcadia and then The Book of Daniel but America was, thank God, too smart for the hidden persuaders. Yet Hollywood still hasn't learned, continuing to push irreverent and sinful agendas from Brokeback to DaVinci to what not. Don't they realize no matter the ratings (always low) and the box office dividends (also very low) they will have to pay in the end. As we are accustomed to saying: They're going to have hell to pay. Quality has cashed in and Hollywood is bankrupt morally and artistically. Like dominoes and dinosaurs, down they go as Gabriel explains in his column Another One Bites the Dust


    The Straight Stuff
    Griff Ruby rejoices that the "Indult" even exists for to many it is the only link to the truths and traditions of Holy Mother Church. While the truth may be blurred by the Novus Ordo conciliarists, at least, for the most part, the traditions remain. What also remains is the fact that many, who have since disowned the heretical Vatican II agenda and its man-made pagan, Protestant synthetic rite, began that road to discovery by attending an Indult at a time in their life when satan's venemous veil still blinded them to what was really going on. Yet by their attendance God allowed a small rip in that veil and it shed a small light on their hearts to what has been lost. Slowly but surely there were enough graces to shred that demonic curtain and shed full light into the heart, soul and mind. This was also the inspiration of the Apostle Paul's final epistles to the Ephesians, Colossians and Philippians composed while he was incarcerated in a small cell. Griff encourages the Indult for now for eventually it will drive more and more to the True Traditional Latin Mass and populate parishes who will not compromise the Sacred Deposit of the Faith and Holy Mother Church's sacred liturgy. Griff explains in his column In THIS I Rejoice


    Catholic PewPOINT
    Time flies when you're having fun, but when it is at the expense of our Lord and His holy Mystical Bride, then it drags while hell's tempo accelerates. The clock started 47 years ago and since then it seems like most have been going in slow motion toward Christ and His truths while in actuality racing pell mell away from Him at breakneck speed toward that ever-greased slippery slope to perdition. In this 17th issue of the 17th edition, Editor Michael Cain takes the reader down memory lane to conditions the way they were in 1959 and how far we have fallen since. Will we ever learn? From Benedict's latest encyclical it is obvious most have not and continue to blindly follow the pied-pipers of pan-religion right to the abyss. While the fallacious flute had been prepped well before 1959, it was first trilled on that Septuagesima Sunday when the newly elected Roncalli ignored our Lord's parable of the day. Ironic that back then "many were called, but few chosen" because those chosen ignored the call. Cain cites the plane crash of a trio of rock n' roll legends around the same time as the catalyst for expressing the aurora of an era that was just beginning - "the day the music died" -for ushering in the daybreak of revolution that would reach its apex in the savage 60's and lay waste to millions of souls and psyches long into the 70's, 80's, 90's and now past the halfway point in the new millennium. If we were to mark that time it could best be described as "The Day Tradition Died"
    "Qui legit, intelligat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Fourth Sunday After Epiphany, he cites today's Gospel as a wake-up call to all who don't seem to think we are perishing. The Apostles were afraid of losing their lives in the all-engulfing sea, but so many today, especially those who call themselves 'Catholic' (but don't act or speak like Catholics) think there is nothing to be afraid of, that no matter their sinful lives and reliance on worldy things and authorities, that God will still lift them out of the boat if things really get bad. Father points out that they have been stagnant too long on the banks of the Lethe River, one of the tributaries that flows through hell and from which the comes the etimology of "lethargic". Lethargy is one of the derivatives for the seven deadly sins and the longer those who place their hope in man wait, the harder it will be to recognize the true Beacon of Hope, the Lamp of Salvation. Father quotes both Old and New Testament Holy Writ in assuring that the only hope for redemption is through Jesus Christ and the steady rescue ship He has sent: the Immemorial Holy Sacrifice of the Mass wherein daily - or weekly for most without the daily Latin Mass - we are not only reminded, but can readily recognize why Christ is the Lord and our only hope for salvation. Take courage, we shall not perish if we but believe and hoist the sails of true Catholicism against the winds of the world which will be quelled by the One Who created and rules all. Father explains in his sermon "There Arose a Great Storm"
    Doctors of the Church
    In honor of today's Feast of the holy Doctor of the Church Saint Francis de Sales which is superseded by the Fourth Sunday After Epiphany this year, we present a brief backgrounder on this saintly bishop born in France. Through the grace of God he reached every corner of the world with his works and influence. His piety, zeal and energy caught the eye of no less than the Pope himself who made him one of the youngest bishops to rule the See of Geneva. Along with another saint, he founded the Visitandines. He was known for his gentleness and meekness, and his holiness so well known that he was the first person to be beatified in the new St. Peter's Basilica. In 1923 this meek but magnificent warrior orator and writer of orthodoxy was officially proclaimed Patron Saint of the Catholic Press
    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica finishes off the week by addressing a problem in society and the Church today on why abortion and sodomy have gained such ground in the last 30 plus years. That could be because of the level of competency and lack of dedication the shepherds have settled for over the past 40 years. Because they have been lax, Gabriel lays out the lukewarmness that has permeated society today, expressed in the words and actions of the spineless prelates who think they can have it both ways. Christ has asserted that no man can serve two masters and yet these whited sepulchres dressed in prelates' robes try to contradict the Son of God and lead everyone astray by preaching a gospel other than what Paul preached per his words in Galatians 1: 8-10. Gabriel describes the tiers and why it is so lonely on the top level and so crowded where the bottomfeeders dwell. If you must ask why Roe v. Wade has gone on this long, you need only look to the third level of shepherds to see why the flocks are so scattered and confused. Gabriel explains in his column The Three Levels of Shepherds
    On the BattleLine
    Released on Tradition In Action near the 15th year anniversary when the United States first went into Iraq, Atila Sinke Guimar„es presents some sobering thoughts that should stop the anti-war activists in their tracks. As the liberals clamor about the number of American troop casualties in Iraq over the past three years, the numbers actually pale in comparison to the number of urban casualties just in three of the largest U.S. cities New York, LA, and Chicago. Even one casualty of war is too much, but when you realize that more have died of homicide in those three cities than those fallen soldiers in Iraq, it's time to put things in persepective, especially now, when the Al Qaeda is rumbling once again, spurred on by new threats from Osama bin Laden, and the radical left are doing all they can to undermine the U.S. effort for peace. This is no time to retreat with our tails between our legs. Rather it is the time to defend humanity and be the beacon of freedom the United States has always been. The biggest problem is the ban on proselytism. All those muslims and no one can tell them the truth of Jesus Christ. That is the true tragedy of the war in Iraq. Atila explains in his bird's eye view of the news column War and Peace in Perspective

    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:

       We invite you to find out for yourself the truth as we present a compendium portal of documents on the Faith in all aspects, past, present and to come. We guarantee what you read is in full harmony with the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church, and we guarantee you that if you read it all with a discerning heart you will be able to decipher the wheat from the chaff. You will better understand what the absolutes of our Faith are and not be fooled by modernism and ambiguities, no matter how cleverly they are couched. Remember satan is the father of half-truths. Read the fullness of the Truths and Traditions of the Roman Catholic Faith in the sections below.
