Month of St. Joseph
TUESDAY     March 21, 2006      Volume 17, no. 67
   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!
        Though we completed yesterday the 30-Day Prayer to Saint Joseph for his Double of the First Class Feast on Monday, we keep it here for a few days so that we will all remember this month dedicated to the human head of the Holy Family and provide additional Devotions to Saint Joseph.

        On this Tuesday of the Third Week in Lent, we honor today Saint Benedict, a man of utmost charity and chastity, who had a rule which, had it been followed, the wiles of satan would not have prevailed in the manner it has today. Griff Ruby ties in this lack of vigilance and the warning so clearly expressed by our Blessed Mother at Fatima that the errors of Russia will spread and have. He ties in the link of the sodomite invasion with Communism in his concluding column on Homosexuality's Dirty Secret. Editor Michael Cain shows how the VerbumQUO today "benedictióne" is the noun for "benediction" which is a blessing and few in the history of the Church were as blessed as the holy St. Benedict whose fruits are threatened today by those who would sack the Holy Rule.

It is the first leg of this year's "Good, Bad, and UGLIES Awards" The Bad, the IgNOMinious gNOMe Nominations will commence April 1, the same day the UGLIES nominations will close.

       For those who may have missed some of the highlights from this past week, we provide a synopsis here for you to catch up on. We began with last Sunday's sermon by Father Louis Campbell in which he pulled no punches in telling it like it is with his probing words in his sermon Of Bright Clouds and Modernist Fogs. Monday through Thursday and again on Saturday editor Michael Cain presented key words known as the VerbumQUO to focus on the Proper of each day's Mass in meditating on the Word of God and how moriemini, minister, hereditatem, mendicus, and revelabitur ("you shall die", "servant", "inheritance", "beggar" and "shall be revealed" respectively) relate to each respective feast of the day. On Tuesday Father James Wathen presented a most telling essay that should prick the consciences of all as to which window they look through - the window to the world, the flesh and the devil or the window to Heaven. His words in A Time and a Place should wake up many. We provided one of Gabriel Garnica's "Gems from the Past" on Wednesday with A Tent Grows in the Coliseum for the Ides of March for the persecution is growing stronger and more direct. On Thursday John Gregory brought us his second meditation on the Second Sorrowful Mystery The Scourging at the Pillar and on Friday we emphasized good Saint Patrick with three pieces on this holy Apostle of Ireland including his own words in his Conversion of Souls along with another "Gems from the Past" by Gabriel Garnica on the dire straits Ireland and the Church have fallen into with Spitting on Their Graves and Michael Cain checked in with an editorial for St. Paddy's Day on how we can be an effective force in reaching the world through the marvels of the web with Thanks to the internet, we can reach more with the True Meaning of the Shamrock!. On Saturday we bookended the week with a profile on the holy Doctor of the Church Saint Cyril of Jerusalem with Catechist of the Holy Ghost after featuring Pope Saint Gregory the Great the Upholder of Harmony and Holiness on Monday.


                           



    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.

  • The STRAIGHT STUFF
    We present Griff Ruby's concluding installment of his series on how sodomy has gained such a deadly foothold in society today. Though he is not one to propound theories or ever go off on a tangent on conspiracies that are not built on facts. But he has several facts where the only syllogism possible is that the culprit is satan, and his vehicle was Communism. Our Lady warned us at La Salette and Fatima; Our Lord foretold it in Matthew 24; Former Soviet Agents have admitted it, and it all makes perfect sense in the great charade played out within the conciliar church and its cozy, convenient Pact of Metz which, in effect, said 'hands off' the Reds, get your hands in the beds of young boys. Sick? Yes, and that is exactly what sodomy is and how it could very well have infiltrated the Church over the last century and caused the rot we are left with today. Griff's summation makes perfect sense in explaining how a sin, that cries to Heaven for vengeance, went from a perverted disorder to a civil right and so permeated the church of Vatican II. While the sodomite lobbyists claim to be a "victim" so oppressed by narrow-minded "bigots", it is all a smokescreen that clouds their real agenda, to pervert society and hold them hostage to the devil. Hold the sympathy, for in the darkness they have a dark and dirty secret they don't want the public to realize and that is that the Communists have infiltrated every facet of society and the hierarchy. It all makes sense as Griff illustrates in Homosexuality's Dirty Secret Part Two


    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 benedictióne, which is the Latin for "benediction", taken from today's Epistle, and a perfect way to remember today's saint whose feast we celebrate: Saint Benedict. He was a blessing to all he touched during his life and ever after from his heavenly perch. Today he and the holy Rule he established are needed more than ever when everything else is falling apart. Cain explains in The Rule Rules!
    Living in Tradition
    On this day which Holy Mother Church has designated as a Double of the First Class Feast, the highest classification possible, it is dedicated to the the saint who enabled the Blessed Mother to fulfill her fiat and raised the Son of Man in the virtuous life. It was the quiet and holy Joseph who helped his foster Son Jesus Christ prepare for His mission on earth. Look at the innocent child in the massive arms of good St. Joseph and we see how love overflowed in the home of the Holy Family. Editor Michael Cain reprises an article he wrote six years ago, updating it slighty, to honor this gentle giant of our Faith; a saint who serves as the ultimate role model for all men just as his earthly spouse the Blessed Virgin Mary is the ideal mentor for all women. Their intercession is the greatest in Heaven and too few call upon good St. Joseph, who molded and taught the Son of God in all things human. Indeed, of all his many titles, few realize he is also The Silent Assassin
    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 justus, which is the Latin for "just", taken from today's Introit and Gospel, in praising the attributes of the holy Saint Joseph, who we honor today. Cain shares insight from the just and trusted Abbot of orthodoxy Dom Gueranger in pointing out just how just this special saint really is. Cain explains in Just Trust Joseph the Just!
    Gabriel's Clarion
    It was one year ago on the feast of the holy Joseph, Patron of the Sick, Patron of a happy death, and Solace of the Afflicted, that Terri Shlindler Schiavo underwent her final passion with starvation verdict forged by murderers. To mark that occasion, we bring you a "Gems from the Past" feature by Gabriel Garnica in which he pointed out that no one was more persecuted than Terri whose rights were stripped from her in the same manner Christ was stripped of His garments. Gabriel made this analogy so clearly in showing the parallels between Our Lord and Savior and one of His faithful, suffering children who, in her own way, was a victim soul, and whose body was rendered totally a victim to the cruel agenda of the Euthanasiasts who were dead set on seeing her dead from the stubborn and very hostile judge to her estranged and strange husband who long ago abandoned his marriage vows in favor of the world, the flesh and the devil. And the devil is in control in directing those who insist on one man's fabrications as the cornerstone of their case to remove Terri's feeding tube. Gabriel laid out the comparisons between the Passion of Jesus and Terri's Passion
    "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!

    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
