Month of St. Joseph
TUESDAY     March 14, 2006      Volume 17, no. 60
   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 continue the 30-Day Prayer to Saint Joseph in preparation for his feast day, which this year will be March 20th because the normal feast falls on the Third Sunday of Lent. We present this in our devotional series of The Sanity of Sanctity which will run from now until March 20th.

        On this Tuesday in the Second Week of Lent, we bring you a very poignant essay by Father James F. Wathen in which he addresses one of the main vices which curtail our spiritual growth and that is sloth. As Father points out, "Sloth is not in being tired; it is in not planning well, or not following the plan." In that satan conquers by softening us to the pleasures and evils of this world where we forget the true Prize. Only persistent prayer will get us off the couch of casualty. And only humility will produce men of humility as "servants", which in Latin is miníster, an appropriate word for today's VerbumQUO, especially in light of today's Gospel on who is master and the Chair of Moses as editor Michael Cain points out with the magnificent revelations of Dom Gueranger.

       For those who may not have been keeping up daily with The Daily Catholic, here's what you could very well have missed over the past week. Father Louis Campbell began the First Sunday of Lent with his sermon on Spiritual WMD's in which he pointed out that with all the weapons of mass destruction out there today, we have our own spiritual weapons to effectively counter the threats and protect us in times of temptation. Each day editor Michael Cain highlighted one word in VerbumQUO that best highlighted the theme of the day's liturgy including Vade, Satana!, thesauro, sapientia, suffragia, pulchritudo, iniquitatem, sanctifica, and vox yesterday; respectively they translate to "'Begone, Satan!, treasure, wisdom, assistance, beauty, iniquity, sanctify," and "Voice" yesterday. Last Monday we brought you Bishop Mark Pivarunas' Pastoral Letter on The Holy Season of Lent followed on Tuesday by a "Gems from the Past" on The Angelic Doctor of the Church Saint Thomas Aquinas on his Feast Day. Gabriel Garnica completed his "Virtue & Vice" series with installment five on Wednesday on the nine ways one can be an accomplice to sin in The Vice Squad: Partners in Crime. On Thursday John Gregory gave us food for thought in the disparity of Church teaching about the Old Covenant being revoked and the "new thinking" of the modernists with his commentary The Old Covenant and New Popes, while on Friday Griff Ruby presented the first installment of a series on how so many have been totally hoodwinked by the sodomite lobbyists who have infiltrated every level of society and the modern church as Griff revealed a few in Part One of Homosexuality's Dirty Secret We completed the week with a look back at a wonderful article by Father James F. Wathen written two years ago on the value, the immense invaluable value of a true priest in his essay A Priest Forever. This was brought to you in conjunction with the traditional day of Ordinations on Ember Saturday of Lent and a reminder of how precious good, holy priests are to God and to us.

                           




    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!

    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.

  • Making Sense of Sensus Catholicus
    Father James F. Wathen, the pioneering traditional author of The Great Sacrilege, shares a no-nonsense honest assessment of why so many do not take time to pray and, because of that deficiency, are all the more ripe to be deceived by the prince of the world. He asks which tabernacle do we worship at - the tabernacle of satan or the tabernacle of God in quiet, soulful prayer? If we do not practice prayer, we will fail miserably and so many of us have because we've been lured by the siren of the world, the flesh and the devil without realizing how slothful are our ways. We can overcome this sloth by turning our televisions off and turning on our persistence to pray and, in the process, grow in grace and love for God and not miss the temptations that taunt our soul. Father points out that "Sloth is not in being tired; it is in not planning well, or not following the plan." It takes a life time of practice, but, after all, practice makes perfect, and setting a prayer place in our homes and setting time for prayer should take priority in our lives. Father explains in his essay A Time and a Place


    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 today is miníster, which is the Latin for "servant", taken from today's Gospel; when we hear our Lord speaking about who is master, we realize one cannot be master unless one is willing to be the humblest of servants, serving One Master, the Lord Jesus Christ. Cain explains in To master humility one must serve God first and foremost
    Doctors of the Church
    Though yesterday was the feast of Pope Saint Gregory the Great, because it was the Second Sunday of Lent, it was not observed, and so we want to honor today this magnificent Sovereign Pontiff, who truly earned the moniker of "Great" following his predecessor of several hundred years Pope Saint Leo the Great. No Pontiffs, since Gregory, have been accorded such an honor as Saint and Doctor, and that includes the only two Popes over the last 500 years: Pope St. Pius V and Pope St. Pius X. The holy monk Hildebrand became Pope St. Gregory the Great and is considered by Holy Mother Church as the last of the four great Latin Doctors of the Church. To him belongs the honor of collecting those harmonious melodies that have always been called "Gregorian Chant." He began as a simple monk, then became an abbot, cardinal and finally Supreme Pontiff, one of the greatest of not only medieval times, but of all times. We bring you this "Gems from the Past", first run four years ago in October of 2002 in our series on the Doctors of the Church, which we present here on St. Gregory the Great Upholder of Harmony and Holiness
    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 today is moriemini, which is the Latin for "you shall die", taken from today's Gospel when we hear our Lord and Savior say to the multitude of Jews that they will die in their sins if they do not accept Him as the Messias. The same holds true today if we do not heed all that He commanded and taught (cf. Matthew 28: 20). Cain explains in Mortal Sin is the consummate Dead-End!
    "Qui legit, intelligat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Second Sunday of Lent, he documents the obvious heresy of Benedict XVI whose history of heresy dates back over 40 years. Father makes the comparison today of the beautiful, majestic cloud created by the heavenly Father in today's Gospel of the Transfiguration to the murky, thick and blurred fog that shrouds the truth from so many including those who point out the very heresies of the conciliar 'popes' and 'cardinals' and 'bishops' but somehow there remains a fog which obscures the undeniable truths of Pope Paul IV's official statement of Holy Mother Church as to how every loyal Catholic must consider the authority of those in heresy or those who have deviated from the Faith. Father shows how Benedict continues to indict himself with his constant heresy of modernism, humanism, relativism and ecumenism, not to mention universal salvation and still stubbornly a portion of the traditional community, which Father calls neo-traditionalists, have persisted in still recognizing such a heretic as a valid successor of Peter. If so, then Christ, St. Peter, Leo the Great, Gregory the Great, Boniface VIII, the Council of Florence, Paul IV, the Council of Trent, St. Pius V, Pius IX, Leo XIII, St. Pius X, Pius XI, and Pius XII were wrong. Which do you accept? That is Father's point in his poignant sermon that, like the Transfiguration, should be a revelation to all. Of Bright Clouds and Modernist Fogs
    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 today is Vox, Vocis which is the Latin for "Voice", taken from today's Gospel when we hear the Voice of the Father at the Transfiguration. It is the Voice of Authority Which verifies the divinity of His Divine Son. Cain explains in We need to listen!
    Making Sense of Sensus Catholicus
    Father James F. Wathen, the pioneering traditional author of The Great Sacrilege, shares a poignant piece first brought to you back in Advent of 2004 and we bring it to you today on this Ember Saturday, Holy Mother Church's traditional day for the first ordinations of the new year. Thus, in our "Gems from the Past", Father James shares why he became a priest and why being a priest is so precious to him even when he is undergoing his own Calvary. It is an encouraging short piece that will hopefully perk vocations in young men to follow in his footsteps for we desperately need good and holy Traditional priests. We present this encouragement first published here two years ago which we titled A Priest Forever
    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 today is sanctifica which is the Latin for "sanctify", taken from today's Proper in several Lessons and Secret of the Holy Mass which ties in so beautifully for the Season and for this day when Holy Mother Church through true apostolic succession ordains her new apostles to offer up A Spotless Victim
    The STRAIGHT STUFF
    With the influx of sodomite themes and influence gaining a more deadly foothold in society today, one has to wonder what happened? How did a sin, one that cries to Heaven for vengeance, go from a perverted disorder to a civil right? Griff Ruby begins a series on this very question and how they have manipulated the media and other sectors of civilization including the modern church by planting recruiters to woo the innocent and unwary ones. Like the devil lurking in the darkness, the sodomites lie in wait for their prey, taking advantage of the environment, political lobbying, and a church asleep on the watch, to pervert God's laws. While they are supposedly so "open" and "frank" about their "oppression" and try to prompt sympathy for their sin, they have a dark and dirty secret they don't want the public to realize and the media has done a good job of cloaking it in the shadows Those who think they are "brave" by piggy-backing on the craftily manipulated Brokeback Mountain phenomena that is seducing sodomites to "come out" and condone their sin, better think again, for God and His natural laws will not be mocked! Griff exposes the secret in Homosexuality's Dirty Secret Part One
    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 today is iniquitatem which is the Latin for "iniquity", taken from today's Epistle and not a far stretch in translation, but a far gap between God and man when man persists in his sin, his iniquity and for that there is a price to pay if we are not repentant and make amends. Cain explains in Why we should never forget the "ick" of "iniquity."
    Faithful to Tradition
    John Gregory addresses those who try to rationalize the credibility of the modernist conciliar popes by pointing out inherent heresy that has, for some reason or another, slipped under the radar of both intellectuals and the common man, much to their own spiritual detriment. What is it with the Modernists of Vatican II that they want to cling to the Old Testament and deny Christ's teachings and what His holy Church believes? No matter what you want to call them, no matter that they occupy our Catholic edifices, wear Catholic garments, or are considered by the world as Catholic spokesmen from Rome to Rio de Janeiro to the Rhine and back, one thing is manifestly clear: They are not Catholic!!! John Gregory documents that through a few "experts" in the matter: The Evangelists, St. Paul, and the Source of Truth - Jesus Christ Himself. John lays it out in his column The Old Covenant and New Popes
    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 today is pulchritudo which is the Latin for "beauty", taken from today's Epistle, Tract and corresponding Introit for the Thursday in the First Week of Lent; so appropriate for today's Saint Frances of Rome as Cain explains in The eyes of the beholder.
    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica provides part five of his series on "Virtue & Vice" by outlining the nine ways we can cooperate in the sins of others and therefore be guilty ourselves. He points out that too many like to rationalize that they are not responsible for others and yet by their own counsel, command, consent, participation, silence, provocation, flattery, concealment, or defense of a sin, they are just as guilty before God. No excuses please. Excuses and alibis come from the venomous serpent of hell who is the lord of rationalization; God doesn't cater to excuses and Gabriel pinpoints why any excuse won't wash when God calls in His mark in his fifth installment on the nine ways we participate in the sins of others with The Vice Squad: Partners in Crime
    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 today is suffragia which is the Latin for "assistance" or "help", taken from today's Postcommunion for the Feast of the holy confessor Saint John of God who dedicated his life to helping others including the child he carried - Jesus Himself. Cain explains why suffragia is so fitting for us on the feast of the founder of the Hospitaliers in Help Wanted! Inquire Within.
    Doctors of the Church
    Today, in honor of the Double Feast of the holy Doctor of the Church Saint Thomas Aquinas, we bring you a 'Gems from the Past' first presented on these pages three years ago in providing a profile of the greatest, wisest men ever in the history of the Church - the very man who was once regarded as stupid. Dubbed the "dumb ox," he became the most brilliant scholar in the history of the Church. Few saints were more revered than this learned Dominican who contributed so much to Holy Mother Church in writings and songs. He is best known for the great tome on theology "Summa Theologica," which incorporates three parts covering the entire teaching of the Church in regards Faith and Morals. He also penned the awe-inspiring Benediction hymns of "O Salutaris Hostia" and "Tantum Ergo". His life spanned less than half a century yet his teachings have had more impact than any other saint. He is known as The Angelic Doctor
    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 today is sapientia which is the Latin for "wisdom", taken from today's Introit, Epistle and Gradual for the Feast of the holy Doctor of the Church Saint Thomas Aquinas, the Angelic Doctor whose method of teaching has been adapted by Holy Mother Church in conveying the truths of Catholicism. Cain explains this wisdom in Call upon the "dumb ox" to defeat the devil and dumb luck!
    Miters that Matter
    Appropriately, with Lent underway, we want to bring you a pastoral letter from His Excellency Bishop Mark Pivarunas, CMRI, who wrote this ten years ago this Lent but it is as pertinent in 2006 as 1996 or 36 A.D. for Catholic truth cannot change or ever be watered down or compromised, something Eternal Rome would never do, but modern Rome has been quick to do. The very exercises of prayer, fasting, penance and almsgiving are rooted in Sacred Scripture and our Lord's words in the Gospels. If we understand Christ's words and His meaning we can readily understand why Holy Mother Church has given us this season to discipline our fallen human nature and to refocus us on the prize of Heaven rather than temporal things? If not, then Lent means nothing but 40 days of monotony and waiting out the late spring for Easter. For Easter to really mean something, it is all contingent on how we spend our preparation time for it. Catholics call it Lent. His Excellency, in a very concise manner, sums it up in his Pastoral Letter The Holy Season of Lent
    The VerbumQUO
    Editor Michael Cain takes 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 today is thesaure which is the Latin for "treasure", taken from today's Gospel for the Feast of Saints Perpetua and Felicitas who are treasured by Holy Mother Church with inclusion in the Canon of the Mass. Cain explains in The measure of your treasure
    "Qui legit, intelligat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the First Sunday of Lent, he targets the various Weapons of Mass Destruction that can harm the body and the soul and what we must do to combat their effect. With the three pronged defense of Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving, we can be balanced and fend off the forces of satan that barrage us daily. Through the triune attributes of Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving we not only give the Triune Divinity great praise, but God protects us with the shield of grace that grows more impenetrable the more we focus on fulfilling the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy that build up spiritual treasures that cannot be measured by those who hold worldly things valuable. On this Sunday, when we see first hand the devil's own words in daring to tempt the Son of God, we must dig in all the more and defend our soul and realize just how vulnerable we can be to satan's wiles if we are not firmly balanced in the three exercises of Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving. If we are sincere about defending our soul, we can be confident those three barrels will be the perfect "big guns" to keep the devil at bay. Thanks to satan, the modern church has cut the legs right out from under souls by diminishing the necessity of prayer and fasting. That shifts the shield way off its level and makes the fort unguarded. Father points out that our spiritual armament is useless if we do not properly employ what God has provided His troops: Spiritual WMD's
    The VerbumQUO
    Editor Michael Cain takes 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 today is Vade, Satana! which is the Latin for "Begone, Satan!" pronounced demonstrably by our Lord to the prince of darkness in dispatching the evil one. Why do we think we're immune to the devil if Christ would subject Himself to His adversary? Cain explains in Give the devil a devil of a time!
    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica continues his series on Virtue and Vice and today tackles the vice part with the Seven Deadly or Capital Sins, which are the treads on the slippery slope that may look like an inviting rainbow to those blinded to God's will. Because of that, as Gabriel points out, they grab for the colorful, glitz and fleeting fame and temporal treasures that soon dissipate just as every rainbow dissolves into nothingness. Without the safety net of the Sacrament of Penance on the tri-legs of prayer, fasting and almsgiving - the Lenten virtues, and all the other corresponding virtues to combat these very deadly sins, one can plunge quickly into the bottomless pit, or stubbornly grabbing for the rims of the rainbow, find themselves helplessly suffocating in the serpent's crushing coils. Gabriel explains in Part Four: The Rainbow of Perdition
    The VerbumQUO
    Editor Michael Cain takes 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 today is constantia which is the Latin for stability, something Saint Casimir, Patron of Poland and holy king definitely had in standing firm to the One, True Faith. Cain explains in Stand firm to Tradition!

    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
