Month of St. Joseph
SUNDAY     March 19, 2006      Volume 17, no. 65
   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 Third Sunday of Lent, many might have been expecting the Feast of Saint Joseph but it has been transferred to tomorrow as a Double of the First Class Feast. But we don't disappoint because Father Louis Campbell presents his sermon on St. Joseph in illustrating how Joseph perfectly carried out the royal lineage of the House of David as the link between the Old and the New. Tomorrow we will have more on the patriarch of the Holy Family, but today we focus on the Gospel for the VerbumQUO which is daemonia, Latin plural for "devils" and in case some out there think they no longer exist we have a Gospel for you today. Editor Michael Cain explains as well as sharing a "Gems from the Past" from four years ago of an interview with Rome's chief exorcist Father Gabriel Amorth that should still be seen as shocking today as it was when it ran back in 2002 in our FOCUS Feature.

       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.

  • "Qui legit, intelligat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Third Sunday of Lent, he foregoes a sermon for the Sunday liturgy in favor of tomorrow's Double of the First Class Feast of Saint Joseph, foster father of Jesus Christ and chaste protector and spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary, as well as Universal Patron of Holy Mother Church. In his sermon, Father points out how the saints remind us of St. Joseph's namesake, the Joseph of Genesis who was sold into slavery, yet did not turn on his people when they needed him. Nor did the holy Joseph when to be betrothed to the Virgin with child, for he knew it was God's will and that somehow he had been prepared for all time to pass on the heritage of David to the King of Kings, the greatest of the lineage of royal rulers for he was Supreme. Father illustrates how Joseph was the perfect parent to pass on the morals and values that his Divine foster Son would establish for all time for His holy Church upon the Rock of Peter. Father provides background on the perfect geneology passed down and the fulfillment of the Old Covenant, and how Joseph was the link between the Old and the New, chosen to nurture the Father's Son as his own and then pass Him on to the faithful for all time as the Messiah to verify to all the two natures of Christ: human and divine. Father shows where Pope Leo XIII and St. Teresa of Avila entreated the faithful to "go to Joseph" to intercede for them for he has a special ear that our Lord always hears. Royal Prince of the House of David


    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 daemonia, which is the Latin for "devils" as in plural - "demons" taken from today's Gospel when where we see the devastation and darkness they perpetually represent which places a soul in mortal danger as Christ so clearly explains in today's Gospel from Luke 11. Cain explains in The Devil is in the Details!
    FOCUS
    Today we bring you a "Gems from the Past" which ties in so well with today's VerbumQUO on an two part feature we published back in 2002 on an interview with the Church's chief exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth who does not mince words in describing the situation today in the Church, especially in the Vatican itself for he acknowledged that satan did indeed penetrate the hallowed halls and infected countless souls by his insidious campaign to corrupt Holy Mother Church from the top on down. Though Fr. Amorth pointed out in a candid conversation first published in 30 Days in June 2001 that Christ has assured us "the gates of hell shall not prevail against it", the devil is trying and, as we can see today, succeeded in convincing the world and those who have usurped the True Church that satan does not exist. If that is the case, why all the smoke? Fr. Amorth and others conferred with the very grave responsibility of performing the sacred and ancient rite of exorcism showed how often times their own hands have been tied as you can see in a very candid and revealing interview conducted by Stefano Maria Paci in The smoke of satan in the house of the Lord with PART ONE and PART TWO
    Doctors of the Church
    Today, in honor of the Feast of the holy Doctor of the Church and devoted Bishop Saint Cyril of Jerusalem, we present a "Gems from the Past" of our Doctors of the Church series. Known as the patron saint of catechizers, St. Cyril was another from the fourth century who was both greatly persecuted by the Arians and ostracized by many within the Church because of false information and because of his steadfast refusal to never compromise with heretics. For 35 years he was the bishop of Jerusalem and foretold the earthquake that would destroy the rebuilt temple in the Holy City because God chose him to be He is best known for his clear, precise and no-nonsense catechesis that set the pattern for catechisms to come. Except for Traditional Catholic circles, teaching the simple truths of the catechism is lost on so many today in a world devoid of truth. We need to call upon St. Cyril Catechist of the Holy Ghost
    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 revelabitur, which is the Latin future past tense for "shall be revealed" from the verb revelare "to reveal." Today's Gospel for the holy Doctor St. Cyril of Jerusalem reveals much and Cain provides cogent comments from the Benedictine Abbot Dom Gueranger which put in perspective how the Church has been eclipsed today, but in that nothing will remain hidden and so many souls are blinded to that fact and that they fear not he who can kill the soul. Cain explains in The Truth can only reveal the truth!
    Catholic PewPOINT
    Editor Michael Cain tackles St. Patrick's Day from a different perspective in setting aside the green beer and corn-beef and cabbage; after all, it's Lent and Friday no less. On this day of the wearin' o' the green, Cain is seeing red, for too many buffoons harm this saint's good name and purpose. March 17 annually brings out the best and worst of mankind. Those few who are truly Irish in heart and soul, who truly realize what the shamrock represents, who truly understand the infrangible truths of the Faith, are embarrassed by the sad fact that this glorious day has been given over to driveling druids as a license for debauchery and drunkenness. He points out the ironies and secularization of this feast like so many others which the world, the flesh and the devil have commandeered to suit mammon. By gorrah, Cain and Traditional Catholics are mad, and they didn't need whiskey or green beer to rile them up, just the disrespect shown to God that has them ready to swing the shillelaghs and drive the vipers out in much the same manner as a certain bishop did a millennium and a half ago. Because of the availability of the web, this is now possible as Cain explains in his editorial Thanks to the internet, we can reach more with the True Meaning of the Shamrock!
    The Sanity of Sanctity
    In honor of Saint Patrick's Day, we present, as an annual tradition, the special diary of Saint Patrick himself, written by the saint. It delves into his mindset and heart and reveals the pure holiness of this great man who brought Catholicism to a pagan island in the 5th Century. It details the hardships and obstacles he encountered and how, through his immense love for the Triune Divinity and the True Faith, he persevered, even to being rebuked by his superiors, even when a normal person would abandon all hope of converting these stubborn people of Eire. That is what separates common men from saints and this humble confession by the Patron Saint of Ireland. Translated from his own Latin, it is a testimony to his sanctity. Through the natural - the shamrock - he was able to explain the Supernatural. Truly a testament to the sanity of sanctity. Since the 5th Century the emerald isle has remained one of the staunchest bastions of the Roman Catholic Faith in the world. He would weep today at how it has deteriorated over the past 40 years with the cancer of Vatican II that has so ravaged every parish, parishes that produced so many priests who populated the clergy in America in the 40's and 50's but, thanks to the drying up of the True Faith, that constant stream of vocations has slowed to barely a trickle. Nevertheless, we pray that the holy Patrick's diary might be a spark that will once again ignite the chaste fire of a true vocation in someone's heart and soul as we present Conversion of Souls in the Apostle of Ireland's Own Words
    Gabriel's Clarion
    As a "Gems from the Past" Bonus we bring you a gem from Gabriel Garnica from two years ago this day, when we honor one of the great missionaries in St. Patrick of Ireland. Gabriel reminded all of how so many saints and missionaries took Our Lord's charge in Mark 16: 15-16 so very serious that they gave their entire lives, indeed many willingly gave up their lives to martyrdom, so that souls would have the opportunity of knowing, believing and enjoying eternal life. There are so many saints, but Gabriel highlighted a little known saint besides St. Paul: St. Tarsicius, along with St. Patrick, are prime examples of this fortitude and fealty to Christ and His Church. Yet, as Gabriel pointed out, in the New Order their feats are downplayed and apologized for. In such cowardice and denial these modern Pharisees of the Vatican II church have, in effect, blasphemed Almighty God Himself. When Cardinal Kasper told the Catholic bishops in Russia to stop proseltyzing the true Faith, what kind of message did that send Our Lord and Savior, or the saints that gave their all? The message is definitely NOT Catholic and must not be followed. Gabriel explained in his St. Patrick's Day column from 2004: Spitting On Their Graves.

    Faithful To Tradition
    John Gregory continues his comprehensive meditation on the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Holy Rosary today. Christ has been captured in the dark of the night and still under cover of darkness and deceit, the Sanhedrin plot against the Son of Man. John cites the passages that affirm this and ties in prophesies from the Old Testament Prophets who foretold the very scourging and humiliation that Christ would be subjected to, all for our sins. Yes, it was our sins which lashed His precious flesh and continues today to lacerate anew our Lord's Most Sacred Heart as well as the Immaculate and Sorrowful Heart of Mary when we offend God so by our sins, revealing ourselves not as those who would weep and pray for and with Him, but His very executioners. That is a sobering thought which few today are sober enough in the Faith to grasp. John shares his thoughts to meditate on for in the Second Sorrowful Mystery during Lent. The Scourging at the Pillar
    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 mendicus, which is the Latin for "beggar", who is a mendicant and it is taken from today's Gospel in which our Lord describes the plight of the rich man and the beggar and we see it is better to choose the life of the beggar for the sake of salvation. Cain explains in Traditional Catholic "beggars" can't afford to be choosy!
    Gabriel's Clarion
    On this Ides of March, we bring you a "Gems from the Past" published here exactly two two years ago by Gabriel Garnica in which he showed the evolution of the revolution just in the term persecution, which has morphed from the barbaric physical torture employed by the Romans against the Christians to an even more barbaric torture of the soul and psyche today with the modern barbarians at the gate - the politically correct secularists who, by lobbying, legislation and lies, have changed the landscape of morality and resorted to the same arena, so to speak, as the coliseum floor where Christians are once again oppressed for the very same principles they have always upheld. Today's mangy beasts are not the four-legged cats, but two-legged apostates, atheists and agnostics who revel in sin and will cry persecution if they are reminded of their evil way. Therefore they have mounted the forum steps and signal the collective death of Christian principle and ideals with their thumbs down. Despite the catechetical catacombs of reason and truth in traditional circles, the good are being hunted down and held up for ridicule in a world gone mad, a culture out of control. Therefore it is no surprise that A Tent Grows in The Coliseum.
    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 hereditátem, which is the Latin for "inheritance", taken from today's Epistle and Gradual for our inheritance comes from God and for so great an inheritance as our Faith, we are given the way to earn this inheritance through the merits of Jesus Christ. But to earn it we must take up our cross. Cain explains in Where there's a Will, there's a Way: Via Crucis!
    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 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

    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
