Month of St. Joseph
THURSDAY     March 9, 2006      Volume 17, no. 55
   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 Thursday in the First Week of Lent during Ember Week, John Gregory brings to the readers' attention a very pertinent point that seems to fly under the radar of the intellectuals and the common folk who call themselves Catholic; another proof that Catholics truly do not know their Faith for if they did they would not stand for the anathema pronounced by the conciliar 'popes'. What they have done to the Church over the past 45 years is downright ugly. Conversely today's feast of Saint Frances of Rome shows the beauty of a sincere, honest soul who was truly Catholic and lived her faith producing fruits galore as an obedient spouse of husband and Christ, and "pulchritudo" is today's VerbumQUO, which is Latin for "beauty" as editor Michael Cain explains in capturing the beauty of St. Frances' soul and that of other heroes - our Traditional Catholic wives and mothers.

       For those who may not have been keeping up daily with The Daily Catholic, here's what you just might have missed over the past week. Father Louis Campbell began the final Sunday of Septuagesima - "Quinquagesima" Sunday - by prompting readers to realize what is happening as we go about our daily life = the devil is recruiting all kinds of souls thanks to the rise in paganism. Father reminded all of the importance of calling upon the great general of Heaven St. Michael in Michael of the Morning. On Monday and throughout the week editor Michael Cain highlighted one word in VerbumQUO that best highlighted the theme of the day's liturgy. Also on Monday Griff Ruby went on record as strongly advising the SSPX to slow down and not rush into the fox's den, aka the modern Vatican. He advised that fools could rush in where angels, wise and prudent ones at that, fear to tread. Cain verified this with a poignant, and no-holds barred editorial on Tuesday which identified all too readily more of the animals roming on this earth in clerical garb with Life and Death in the Conciliar Zoo. On Ash Wednesday Gabriel Garnica provided the third installment of "Virtue & Vice" with meditation on the Seven Spiritual Works of Mercy and again on Saturday with the Seven Deadly Sins in his fourth installment The Rainbow of Perdition. On Thursday John Gregory began his Lenten meditations on the Sorrowful Mysteries with The Agony in the Garden and Friday Father James Wathen had an essay that should be read by all on Some Thoughts for Women on Woman which hopefully will balance the political correct feminist garbage we'll hear this week with International Women's Day on March 8.

                           




    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!

  • Daily Propers for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass from the First Sunday of Lent through the Second Sunday of Lent
    March 5March 6 March 7March 8

    March 9 March 10 March 11 March 12

                               

    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.

    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!
    Making Sense of Sensus Catholicus
    Father James F. Wathen, the pioneering traditional author of The Great Sacrilege, shares a no-nonsense honest assessment of woman's role and how that has been so skewered today because the ideal for women, which should be the Blessed Virgin Mary - the second Eve and her fiat, has been twisted by the Revolution to revert back to the first Eve and to listen to the serpent. That is the crux of the problem with society today. Defiance has surfaced and woman has abandoned her role in the natural order and, as a result, unnatural things are happening and there is no one Voice, as the Roman Catholic Church used to rightly be, to stop the plunging that has sent God's concept of woman and the family unit - the very idea of populating Heaven - hurtling into the vortex of darkness in the midst of flames. Satan is tossing these most delicate creatures into the abyss because of their failure to emulate thee Woman who was the Living Tabernacle and Vessel of Honor. Father explains in his essay Some Thoughts for Women on Woman
    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 jejunare: the Latin verb for "to fast" which is used throughout today's Epistle and is one of the three virtues in Lent along with prayer and almsgiving. Cain explains in Fast on the straight and narrow
    Faithful To Tradition
    John Gregory begins his comprehensive meditation on the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Holy Rosary today. Thus it begins at the Mount of Olivet - the grueling trek to Calvary. There in the Garden He was alone for even His Apostles could not watch one hour with Him. How lonely it must have been, how harrowing the agony to see our sins and transgressions. How can we ease His suffering? By resolving not to place ourselves in the occasions of sin; by being part of the hope and light that sustained Him and encouraged Him to continue His course for He was a man, like us in every way, save for sin. Why, oh, why do we persist in offending the Son of God? And yet, while we still expect God to do so much for us, are we willing to spend even an hour a day with Him and for Him? Thoughts to meditate on as John begins the Sorrowful Mysteries in Lent. The First Sorrowful Mystery: The Agony in the Garden
    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 clamarem: the Latin past tense singular for "I cried" as in crying out to God, to clamor and we must clamor to get His attention, not by shouting, but by sincerer prayer and doing penance in preparation and expiation for our sins to show Him we truly do care. Cain explains in Veil of Tears
    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica continues his series on Virtue and Vice and appropriately today he sets his sights on the all-important Spiritual Works of Mercy which are vital in our journey toward holiness. As soldiers of Christ and bearers of the Truth, if we fail to observe and practice the Seven Spiritual Works of Mercy then we are, as St. Paul says in this past Sunday's Epistle - "a sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal" and have lost the true meaning of charity which must come from the heart beating as one with the Sacred Heart. Yes, it takes a sincere heart to admonish the sinner, instruct the ignorant and counsel the doubtful. It takes a committed Catholic to comfort the sorrowful, bear wrongs patiently, forgive all injuries and, above all, pray for the living and the dead. Gabriel explains in Part Three: The Outward Expression of Interior Charity
    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 cineres: the Latin word for "ashes", most appropriate for Ash Wednesday for from dust we came and unto dust we shall return. Cain explains its significance and why Holy Mother Church uses ashes as the outward sign of our expiation in Fire up your fervor


    Catholic PewPOINT
    To wrap up Septuagesima in preparation for Lent, editor Michael Cain takes the reader on a tour of the zoo - the conciliar zoo. He points out the peculiarities of the various species who populate their natural habitat that has become unnatural - or, as he puts it, queer. With the death of the 'gorilla' - Archbishop Paul Marcinkus last week - it seems everyone is now aping the devil as the sinuous shadows of sin slither across the face of this earth and sideslap souls into silliness and sinfulness. The syllogism: the queer ones are taking over in both secular and ecclesial zoos. Forget those Mardi Gras beads, grab the real beads: Our Lady's Rosary, and batten down the hatches because the jungle is only going to get queerer. Lent is here and you're going to need it! So put on the armor of God, take up the shield of Faith and stand your ground for the sake of Christ and His holy Church; for the sake of sanity, for the sake of souls! Cain elaborates in his hard-hitting no-holds-barred editorial Life and Death in the Conciliar Zoo


    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 libera: the Latin verb for "deliver" for were God not to deliver us from evil - sed libera nos a malo as we conclude each Pater Noster, we would perish. The root of the word is liber - "free." From this we also get the word liberty. For it is only through God's deliverance that we have libertas. Cain explains in Practice makes perfect
    The STRAIGHT STUFF
    Griff Ruby applies the practice of Holy Mother Church over the centuries in coaxing converts back into the Church. There is no hurry for they must want to not only come back of their own volition, but willingly agree to adhere to all the laws and customs of Catholicism. That is why seldom, as Griff explains, are there wholesale conversions but at least there were conversions. Today conversion by proseltyzing the True Faith is looked upon by the modernist conciliar church as intimidating and oppressive and we must be tolerant. Considering the fact that the church of Vatican II has veered so far away from Catholic truth and practice, Griff advises Bishop Bernard Fellay to heed the advice of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre and slow down, don't be in a hurry to be seduced by the concessions that still have not been manifested. The Society and all other Traditional Bishops have the Faith, they have the True Mass and Sacraments; the conciliar church does not. Let them come when they are desperate and will agree to heed all Catholic truth and abandon once and for all the fruitless Vatican II agenda. Until then, take time to pray for them, but don't rush in at their every bidding. Wait them out is Griff's wise advice in his column Personal and Corporate Return to the Church
    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 Oculus: the Latin noun for "Eye". Yesterday we focused "to see" videre, today we focus with the organ that allows us to visualize: the eye. Cain applies it to today's Proper for St. Gabriel of the Sorrowful Virgin in Windows of the soul

    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
