    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!

  • Making Sense of Sensus Catholicus
    Father James F. Wathen, the pioneering traditional author of The Great Sacrilege, begins the New Year with a mission. Despite his illness, he does not hesitate to call a spade a spade in expressing his thoughts on the magnificence and meaning of the hidden life of Jesus Christ and how today's conciliar church has abandoned all He exemplified. Father holds nothing back in describing the anger God feels for those who have allowed His words to be altered, to be misinterpreted, for temporal things to replace the essential salvific truths. For their betrayal perdition awaits as Father candidly explains from the popes on down to the bishops, priests and those 'catholics' blinded by the world, the flesh and the devil. In Christ's Agony in the Garden He foresaw all the sins of mankind. Nothing was hidden from Him and He wept bitterly tears of blood for those who would betray Him in the future, especially those entrusted as shepherds for His holy Church. Woe to them for not abiding by all of Christ's teachings; woe to them who have forgotten the Lord's exemplication of humility carried out in The Hidden Life


    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel returns in 2006 with the first of a slew of articles he will be bringing readers on the state of the State and the state of the Church and how so often the twain never meets, for man by his own initiative often chooses to walk away from God. This is the crux of the problem. God remains stationary while we either walk towards Him or away from Him. That is what sin is, walking away from God and going against His divine Will. Thanks to man's fallen nature, such subtle but deadly heresies can easily creep into our culture and poison man's thinking. The Sacrifice of the Cross has been forgotten in favor of skipping to the Resurrection. Over the last half century this is exactly what has happened and goes against all that Christ revealed. Yet, blinded by the devil, man has closed himself off to God, greatly altering the concept of Who God truly is. Instead man, forgetting that God is always open to us but not our sins, pettifogs what His Divine Will is as always expressed through Divine Revelation. Gabriel explains in his column Same Image, Different Perceptions
    "Qui legit, intelligat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Second Sunday After Epiphany, he reminds us of the miracles our Lord and Savior manifested for all to see, originating with the account in today's Gospel of the wedding feast at Cana. He reasserts that the old wine was the Old Covenant which expired with the coming of the Messiah and the new wine created by Christ when He changed water into wine represents the New Covenant. Despite the Zionist influence prevalent today in the conciliar church that the Old Covenant was not abrogated and still in vogue, we know from Catholic truth and the Scriptures that such thinking is heretical for Christ once and for all to abolish the old and establish the new. Thus His first miracle was an everlasting statement still carried out today in the miracle of miracles He left us - the propitiatory Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as Father points out in his sermon in highlighting specifically the words of the beloved disciple John and its perpetual impact on our Catholic Faith. The First of His Signs
    The Sanity of Sanctity
    As we reach the midpoint of the month of the Most Holy Name of Jesus, we provide a litany of all of the saints whose feast days are celebrated in the month of January. Many of these saints are little-known and often are not, for that reason, invoked in our prayers. While there are a few Time of Epiphany feria days in this month, almost each day is dedicated to one or more saints historically acknowledged in the traditional calendars. If you add this short litany to your daily Rosary, you will have the benefit of invoking the prayers of some of these lesser-known saints for January and, as the Three Kings bowed in humility, better prepare yourself to keep your spiritual resolutions for 2006. Litany of the January Saints
    "Qui legit, intelligat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Feast of the Circumcision, he points to the conciliar usurpers who are intent on circumcizing the infrangible words of Sacred Scripture by bleeding the doctrines and dogmas of Holy Mother Church and caving to pressure from the Modernist marauders who have created an evolving and confusing structure of Faith that has slipped from the rock-solid foundation they once enjoyed to the sand that will cause the collapse of the false church as has happened to every false religion before. Only one Church will stand and that is the one Christ founded and promised that "the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." Yet, in the shadow of the scurrilous Henry VIII, two British Isle conciliar prelates are ready to sell the farm and follow in the footsteps of the apostate bishops who abandoned the Church in the 16th century. As usual modern Rome is silent once again, giving their hushed consent to the further wreckovation of the True Faith. But Father points out the magnificence and pure infallibility of the True Mass and the sure words of past reliable Roman Pontiffs and one of the greatest Doctors of the Church. Who are we to follow? The sainted wisdom of popes and saints or the worldly folly of men that could very well not even be bishops? It's a no-brainer to those who truly know and cherish their Faith and we have Sacred Scripture and Tradition - combined they compose Divine Revelation - to illuminate our path. "A Light to my Path"

    Making Sense of Sensus Catholicus
    Because of a glitch in our e-mails, we've just received Father James F. Wathen's touching story of Christmas 60 years ago and it is a recollection we should all recall and cherish, preserving the traditions that have, by and large, been shelved by the conciliar church and cast into oblivion. We must hold fast to the Faith and Tradition, and Father gives us all a glimpse of the awe and majesty of a time not too long ago when everything centered on the Lord and the seeds for his vocation were nurtured by his faithful shepherd during a Pontifical High Mass. The Bishop warned him then about the candle. He could get burned. Ever since Fr. Wathen has been warning Catholics everywhere as a loyal priest of how they can get burned if they do not realize and truly know their Faith. In a tribute to Father and gratitude for his knowing the common sense of the Bishop's remark, we have fashioned a graphic above which hopefully will trigger more fond memories of that time for Father during these painful days of his dry martyrdom. Father shares his memories in his nostalgic Christmas piece which, because it occurred in St. Stephen's Cathedral in Owensboro, Kentucky, and because we are putting this on line on the First Martyr's Feast, we present here Father's piece sent to us by Maria Hughes, entitled A Christmas Recollection
    Christmas Message
    Keeping with our tradition of bringing you our joint Christmas Message, we present on this Christmas paradox of this night, this Silent Night in which there is so much noise and clatter from the wheat and chaff mucking up hearts and souls today that no one can hear the Silent Night and why it is a Holy Night. Michael and Cyndi express their gratitude to the readers throughout 2005 and may the Light of Christ fill our readers with grace and glad-tidings on this Holy Night and all the year through. May we all strive, with our Lord's help, to be ever more fruitful in His vineyard in waking the echoes of the lukewarm. May we all gain our fuel from the unchangeable, perfect Prayer offered daily on traditional Catholic altars - the most beautiful thing this side of Heaven, the Propitiatory Sacrifice of the Traditional Latin Mass. They share their message in asking Why is the silence so deafening?
    "Qui legit, intelligat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Double of the First Class Solemnity of the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ, he relates the scriptural promise of the Messias - the longed-for event which comes to a joyful, glorious and majestic awe-filled crescendo with the Incarnation of the Word in today's Masses and which is recalled with love and devotion at every Holy Sacrifice of the Mass when, on the creche of the paten and chalice, Christ is "born" anew in our hearts at the miraculous words of the Canon with the Transubstantiation and Major Elevation. Just as He first appeared in the humble hovel of a cold barn, today He continues to welcome us by taking abode in the cold, human hearts of those who are repentant through the graces of the Sacrament of Penance and, like the shepherds on that Holy Night, approach the God-man with fear and trembling at this Awe-struck Divine Mystery. Yet there are those in the world who want to deny this omnipotence, to de-deify the Triune Divinity and make gods of themselves because of their itchy ears who, because they will not believe in something so magnificent and vital, will fall for anything. They, sadly, are unaware of the power of this night and the awesome miracle performed every day of the year through The Mystery of His Presence
    Twelve Days of Christmas
    Today through January 5th we countdown the 12 Days of Christmas. While the commercial world crassly stuffs the Christmas decorations on the back shelf until next year and forgets the true meaning of Christmas, Holy Mother Church celebrates Christmastide leading to the Feast of the Epiphany. In days of olde England and the French Revolution when the song 12 Days of Christmas represented a secret code, if you will, of the basic catechism for each day represents an article of the Apostle's Creed. As customary this time of the year, we present the meaning of this with 12 Days of Christmas
    Traditional Thoughts
    It's become an annual staple for several years that we bring you a special traditional take on Clement Moore's popular poem 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' in parodying the conciliar church and the ridiculous,tragic and outrageous wreckovation of Holy Mother Church that has occurred over the past 40-plus years. With apologies to Mr. Moore, this was first penned in 2001 by M.C. Siena. We revive it this year but not for our Christmas issue. We have published a record number of issues this year and this year we are spreading various contributing writers' Christmas articles throughout several articles. Therefore we are running this in our Christmas Eve issue since tomorrow's issue will serve exclusively as The Daily Catholic's Christmas Card to our readers replete with Fr. Louis Campbell's Christmas sermon. The message in this parody should hit home and rouse countless Catholics from their long winter's night sleep. So, supposedly the mice are not stirring but let's hope hearts will be stirred into stopping the madness and the clutter as you'll see in 'Twas the Night of the Clutter!.
    Miters that Matter
    Bringing readers the meaning of the Christmas Liturgy as Holy Mother Church has always intended it is what His Excellency Bishop Mark Pivarunas highlights for the perennial Christmas message of Christ's Birth, first penned by him on the Nativity of Our Lord in 1994. The well-thought out and inspired, well-planned Liturgy of Holy Mother Church serves as the source of the salvation of countless souls providing many graces, many vocations, many conversions. The three Holy Sacrifices of the Mass celebrated on Christmas, the only day priests are permitted to say three Masses, epitomizes the purpose of Christ's birth humanly, spiritually and eternally. His Excellency explains the infallible, Living Magisterium's wisdom and beautiful, inerrant meaning of the liturgical season with his essay on The Liturgy of Christmas
    Gabriel's Clarion
    For his Christmas article, Gabriel Garnica has chosen an heroic act from nearly two weeks ago in the Bronx to illustrate the true meaning of Christmas. A simple, instinctive life-saving act by a man who believed and responded made it possible for an instant, heartfelt prayer of a desperate mother to come true. Her infant son was saved because God chose to place at the right time and place as a providential instrument a man by the name of Felix Vasquez to preserve the infant, thus fulfilling this man's unknown fiat just as Our Lady said 'yes' to God when she had no idea how it would all turn out. While we are so thankful for Mary's fiat, we should also be thankful for Felix's quick-thinking and concern for the safety of an innocent child. Too many today are only concerned with themselves and not the innocent. Abortion is their answer. Christmas is the antithesis of this and though it came early, Tracinda Fox could not have received a better Christmas gift...because she believed enough to "let go of the branch" to do what Abraham was willing to do to his son Isaac because He loved God more. In an emergency, Tracinda prayed and put her trust in God. As he waited the split-second to catch her child, Felix prayed that he would have the strength to catch her child. Simple faith saved all three. We should all catch the love and concern of these two "everymen" who we can all relate to. Gabriel explains in The Christmas Catch
    Guest Prose and Poetry
    We bring you for this Christmas Eve issue a trilogy of prose and poetry that brings home the holiness of the event and the magnificent impact of the Birth of the Savior. We begin with "The Angel Choir," a staple on these Christmas pages since 2002 by Derek Becher. We follow up with "The Hands that first held Mary's Child" in a tribute to St. Joseph by an anonymous author and sent to us by Joseph Omlor. The third is the classic by Jim Bishop, titled "One Solitary Life" which captures the impact tonight's wondrous event brought to the world for all time. We have gathered them together as a special Christmas treat and titled the assortment A Christmas Collection.
    Faithful to Tradition
    John Gregory continues his series on the Joyful Mysteries leading up to Christmastide. Today he arrives at the great Mystery of Christ's incarnation - the Nativity of the promised Messiah. John provides insight from various reliable sources to enhance the meditation on the Third Joyful Mystery and better prepare ourselves for the Holy Night while giving all a greater appreciation of Mary's role in salvation and how, through the Nativity of her Divine Son, and in cooperation with the chosen Joseph, She cooperated with God's call to bear all things in love, silence and obedience to God in all things for His greater honor and glory. For John's inspiring meditation, see The Third Joyful Mystery: The Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
    Making Sense of Sensus Catholicus
    Father James F. Wathen, the pioneering traditional author of The Great Sacrilege, fresh from a check-up at St. Mary's Hospital, begins our meditative preparation for Christmas on this sixth day of the O Antiphons - the King of the Gentiles - by focusing on the Mother of God, Mary Most Holy. Refined in the kiln of God's eternal Will and polished by Mary's fiat, the immaculate one chosen by the Almighty was truly the Domus Aurea for the King of kings. No tabernacle more pure, more radiating than the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mirror of justice, Seat of wisdom, cause of our joy, Singular vessel of devotion, Mystical Rose, Tower of David, Ark of the Covenant, Gate of Heaven, Morning Star, Health of the sick, Refuge of sinners, Comfort of the afflicted, and Help of Christians. As Father illustrates, Mary worth her weight in graces is truly the foundation God the Father provided from and for all time for the Cornerstone - His only-begotten Son, the Divine Son of Mary, House of Gold
    Miters that Matter
    Today, in deference to the fast-approaching Christmas season, we complete this abbreviated "round two" of the debate on whether the conciliar popes are Catholic. His Excellency Bishop Mark Pivaranus traces the history of the papacy and illustrates clearly that, faithful to Christ's promise, Holy Mother Church cannot preach error and yet they have preached mega-errors over the past 40 years. That alone would suffice to come to the conclusion the conciliar popes are not Catholic, but he shows not only did the holy Apostle Paul foretell of the great apostasy in 2 Thessalonians 2: 3-4, but the very enemy, true to Sacred Scripture and evidenced from documentation of the masonic Alta Vendita, has truly produced a "Revolution in Tiara and Cope" where even today both have been expunged for a more modern look as the conciliar church tries to mask itself as Catholic. Christ has given us the barometer of how we will know the true popes from the false prophets: "By their fruits you shall know them" (Matthew 7: 20) The Bishop shows that, thanks to abandoning the absolutes of Christ's truths and compromising those very truths which no pope had ever done before, they have abandoned control of the Primacy of Peter and yet the papacy continues, albeit, in a state of extended sedevacantism. He explains in his Pastoral Letter The Papacy

    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
