For Father Louis Campbell's sermon for All Saints Day, we reach back to 2003 where he pointed out that our whole purpose on this earth is to join the saints in Heaven. When someone asks 'how many saints are in Heaven?' the answer is: 'ALL of them', for only the purest gain admittance to the presence of the Beatific Vision. But if you did not know Catholic teaching, you could easily get swept up in the heresy that very few don't go to Heaven thanks to the conciliarist concept of universal salvation and other widespread heresies that are not even perceived as such. The reason for this dumbing down of the flock is because of the lie that is being spread by modern society today, thanks to the intrusion of the wolves, ravenous ones at that, into the structure of the Church. It is one reason there are so few saints today. Those who strive to be saints will not condemn these people, but pray they will wake up just as a hardened criminal did because of the persevering prayers of the Little Flower as Father illustrated in his sermon.
The Hope laid up for us in Heaven

For the Solemnity of Christ the King we go back four years to Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the last Sunday in October celebrating - Vivat Christus Rex - the Feast of the Sovereignty of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Supreme King. The feast was set as the last Sunday in October by Pope Pius XI's encyclical Quas Primas In the following sermon, Father reminds us what Pius said that there can be no peace until we have sought with our whole mind, our whole body, our whole soul the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ in all nations. There is no peace because there are no more Catholic States. The modern state has taken over as Atila Sinke Guimar„es confirmed in his article in how Catholic Doctrine undeniably opposes the Modern State. There must be a Catholic State, but, as Father Louis pointed out, since the death of Pope Pius XII this "Glory of God" has been ignored in favor of the glory of man. He explained in his sermon
Christ the King! Now and Forever!
Echoes of True Catholicism
For All Hallow's Eve we bring you a "Gem from the Past" with a 2004 article by Dr. Marian Therese Horvat who gets to the point of how Catholicism has been so undermined by secular interests and Halloween is now fully the devil's holiday and so many willingly are marching to satan's beat right into hell for the pagan practices, yeah, demonic practices are widely accepted today and grilled into the children's psyches as good. Marian traces this pagan phenomenology and shows how the only barrier to total paganism, total domination by the devil are the Traditional forces willing to valiantly fight the demons against all odds. The trick is they have on their side the greatest weapon - God. That is the Treat that will eventually subdue the evil spirits and free the faithful from the bonds of lucifer. That is the goal of those who have resisted the onslaught of paganism and the diabolic influence. She explains in her timely column Halloween: A Return to Paganism
All Hallows Eve has been transformed over the years from a proper preparation for the Solemnity of All Saints to a secular day of sin for it has become a satanic holiday when the demons are directly or indirectly called forth. It's another reason those in the state of grace, wishing to stay in the glow of God's grace and blessings, are wise to remain home and pray. Yet, there is nothing like some clean fun with the proper focus to tickle the funny bone and thus we bring you an All Hallows Treat with some laugh-out loud malaprops that have actually appeared in church bulletins be they traditional, Novus Ordo or Protestant. No matter one's creed, laughter is a universal language and in humor we can be "ecumenical" without fear of compromising the true Faith. So sit back and enjoy these magnificent malaprops sent to us by Joseph Saraceno. Enjoy
Saints, Sinners, and Malaprops!

For Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Twentieth Sunday After Pentecost, we bring you his poignant words from last year in which he pinpointed some of the cracks in the apostate wall where the serpent slithered through as he highlighted the Apostle Paul's Epistle in today's Mass to the Ephesians in which he warns the faithful to walk carefully and wisely for the days are evil and one must live in honesty and grace, giving all to Our Lord Jesus Christ in order to survive these evil times. And indeed, as Father revealed the subterfuge that created the monster Nostra Aetate, the Zionist conspiracy has only grown stronger over the fated 40 years it has been allowed to fester its heretical tenets where today Jesus Christ is downplayed by the conciliarists in order to placate man. The heck with the Redeemer and Messiah of the world. We can't offend the Jews! In the midst of all the hypocritical, hollow celebrating of the 40th anniversary last year of the dastardly Vatican II document Nostra Aetate, which senselessly submitted to a wretched miniscule minority of stubborn perfidious Zionists who continue to reject Christ as the only way to Heaven, those very shepherds who should be Catholic, and wise, and who should be Successors of the Apostles, are not! For they have betrayed not only Christ but their flocks and will be held in account and be treaded upon for they have betrayed the Triune Divinity. Father explained in his sermon.
The Struggle for the Catholic Church
While we await a transcript of the Debate between John Lane arguing for the fact that the Chair of Peter is vacant due to the heresies of the conciliar popes and Dr. Robert Sungenis, the Novus Ordo afficianado who argued that the conciliar popes were still valid, we wanted to bring you a few observations of what occurred on Monday, October 16 in Spokane, Washington. The hot and heavy debate, moderated by Tom Droleskey as ringkeeper, if you will, begged for a rematch and Round 4. For now we provide some observations from Round 3 by Myrna Migala, whose daughter Jennifer Migala has graciously offered to transcribe the debate and which will soon be available to readers and to all conference attendees as well as the principals involved in the debate. The editor's own preliminary comments follow as well after Myrna's cogent observations in
Observations on the Debate on Sedevacantism
"Qui legit, intelligat"
We present Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Nineteenth Sunday After Pentecost from 2004 in which he encouraged us to heed the words of St. Paul for we will be examined spiritually and will have to account for that which we are culpable for, just as Karol Wojtyla discovered upon his death in April the following year. That is why Father reminded us that Christ's Church is built upon the solid foundation of the rock, but those who try to construct the Sacred Deposit of the Faith upon the shifting, worldly sands of modernism and ecumenism are destined to fail. Thus the direction Modern Rome has taken is directly contrary to the firm footing of Eternal Rome and the reader must decide which footing he wants to be planted on - the rock of the Church of Peter and Paul through Pius XII, or the loose sands of the conciliar church now headed by Joseph Ratzinger. One way we can better make this choice is by heeding all Our Lord conveyed and abiding by the Truths and Traditions faithfully handed down. To do this we must garb ourselves in grace, for as Jesus says in today's Gospel, "Many are called, but few are chosen." Wouldn't it be a shame if you were not chosen? Begin now by
Putting on the New Man

In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Eighteenth Sunday After Pentecost, he presents his last sermon that he will be sending for he is experiencing some health problems due to the stress that has taken its toll. It is part and parcel of these dire times because there are so few traditional, loyal priests such as Father Campbell left. Please keep him in your prayers for several of our traditional priests have died off over the last few years, and, though we have many young ones who are doing such an excellent job, there are so few in the vineyard to meet the needs of the growing numbers of Catholics returning to tradition. The reason is that more and more of the laity recognize the conciliar church is not Catholic, and therefore seek to return to their Catholic roots. Why is it so few Novus Ordo 'priests' and 'bishops' don't recognize this? That is the million dollar question. Father Campbell is the perfect example of one ordained in 1961 in the old true rite of Holy Orders, who realized he could not truly be "a priest forever according to the Order of Melchisedech offered to Thee, a holy sacrifice, a spotless Victim" in the faux Novus Ordo religion of the conciliar church. He returned and so can many other priests, if they are only honest with themselves, and would return if they had the guts to face the truth. The truth is that most are so comfortable in their lukewarm zones that they do not have the fortitude to do what Father Campbell did. We pray that these men stuck in the Novus Ordo will break the shackles of blind obedience and gain the grace and resolve to leave the false conciliar church. They have every reason as Father points out in his sermon, citing the esteemed priest Reverend Doctor Nicholas Gihr from his masterpiece book The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass written in 1929. It should be a wake-up call to everyone wearing the roman collar of
The Preeminence of the Traditional Mass
As all prepare for Round Three in the debate between those who propose that the conciliar popes are Catholic and those who state they cannot possibly be, His Excellency Bishop Richard Williamson launched the first volley with an interview by Stephen Heiner, the latter being the same chap who got Bishop Tissier de Mallerais to trip all over his words in stating the obvious, and yet, just as Bishop Mallerais would not cross the Society line in calling one who spouts heresy a heretic, so also Bishop Williamson has been caught on his own petard as Father Anthony Cekada documents in his rebuttal to Bishop Williamson's remarks. Father contends how this illustrates the Bishop's mentevacantist thinking and that membership in the SSPX is not governed by Catholic thought but SSPXtra ideology wherein thinking for oneself in following unadulterated Catholic truth can also evolve just as Benedict XVI's own modernist theology does, but on opposite parallels that are still parallel and make no sense in light of Catholic Tradition, Divine Law and Canon Law. Father Cekada makes these points in proffering that the puppet governing of the SSPX mindset is sick in recognizing Benedict XVI's "sickness" as merely one who "suffers from theological attention deficit disorder" and nothing more, certainly not heresy, no matter how far he publicly deviates from Catholic truth. Haven't we had enough of this "sickness", this malady which has ravaged billions of souls over the past forty plus years? Father lays out his logic in revealing the Bishop's mentevacantist mindset in his article
Bishop Williamson's Mentevacantist Error
Editor Michael Cain takes a page from the popular comedic schtick of Jeff Foxworthy, famous for his "You might be a redneck, if..." routine. Cain has adapted a less humorous approach; in fact a most serious adaptation of Foxworthy's routine, entitled "You might be a lukewarm Laodician, if..." to point out how many fall into the category illustrated so vividly and starkly in Apocalypse 3: 16 when the Lord said exactly what He would do to the lukewarm, tepid souls who wallow so in apathy and forsake their responsibility to the Communion of Saints as members of the Church Militant. This is intended to tweak the senses so that with eyes you will see, and with ears you will hear and be fearless, confident in God's protection when one is in the State of Sanctifying Grace and obedient to the true holy Church He established and what was observed and passed on in the patrimony of the Deposit of the Faith from Saint Peter through Pope Pius XII.
Are you earless or fearless?

In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Seventeenth Sunday After Pentecost, he emphasizes the power of prayer which is our antidote to the world, the flesh and the devil. It is a command that Christ asks for prayer is communication with God, an affection toward God for He so loved us that He gave His only begotten-Son that we might have life - everlasting life - and have it more abundantly. In today's Gospel our Lord clarifies so succinctly the law of the New Testament with the love of God first and the love of neighbor second, out of love for God. There are no humanistic tendencies in the bible, but divine love for the human, created in God's image and likeness. And yet, as St. Peter says, the devil goes about like a roaring lion seeking whom he might devour and, sadly, as Father illustrates, having a feast on clueless souls who are so ravaged by the cacophony of chaos today that they reject prayer as useless and superstitious. They follow another spirit, not the one St. Paul speaks of in today's Epistle to the Ephesians that is the perfect formula for prayer.
And it is a simple prayer that is so powerful as the saints have illustrated and as history has proven, that it pierces the celestial castle in calling on the ramparts of the Church Triumphant to assist the flanks of the Church Militant. Such is an example of

The Straight Stuff
Griff Ruby asks if there any sedevacantists really so silly and foolish as to be unable to answer "Ten items that Sedevancantists can't or won't talk about." Says who? Not Griff, for he tackles this very thing in his October column. He illustrates how there really is no question that cannot be answered. Yet often times, sincerity is masked when certain questions are asked with the purpose of trapping or intimidating one so they will not reply. Such are often intended not as sincere questions, but posed in the very same manner of questioning that Jesus faced with the Scribes and Pharisees - the Hypocrites of the Sanhedrin, whom our Lord castigated so vigorously with such vivid imagery in Matthew 23. Often times such questioning is one's way of throwing stones, and by posing the questions without a balanced response, are often intended to hurt or to pile up mortar to hide the asker's own ignorance or other ulterior motives. Griff takes on a little known 'Letters to the Editor' from a California physician posted in The Remnant a few months ago, and yet as Griff shows, the questions are really not that difficult when answered through the truth of Faith. One should certainly hope and pray that The Remnant, in the interest of truth and fairness and providing a balance, might print 10 Simple Answers to 10 Easy Questions
Gabriel Garnica reminds us of the treasure the Holy Catholic Church has provided in her traditional liturgy and how we can reap the dividends and the harvest of the fruits of the saints. It was built on the solid foundation of the Corner Stone - Jesus Christ - and fortified by the blood, sweat and tears sacrificed by countless martyrs as the seeds of the true Faith. Because the foundation is firm, this Church cannot be destroyed despite the conciliar church's best effort to tear it down. Gabriel focuses on this month's cornucopia of feasts and the edification of the saints commemorated to show us how the Church, through divine inspiration, gives us the blueprint for the solid foundation of what it takes to Rebuild His Church as Christ asked of one of this month's featured saints, St. Francis of Assisi. The saints and feasts this month all point to how we can go about being constructive builders for the Church Militant as Gabriel explains in his column this month Octoberfest of Feasts
Transition to Tradition
Denise M. Trias shares the plight of a Marist priest who ministered to the homeless as the Boston Waterfront Chaplain with his ministry Apostalatus Maris. But once he himself fell upon hard times with a stroke, he was soon left homeless by his unCatholic order who showed their true colors when push came to shove. When they discovered that a dedicated woman was willing to devote her life to helping Father return to health and would dare introduce him to what he had long ago lost - the Traditional Catholic Faith and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass - they went ballistic and did everything they could to prove they were heartless, ruthless and law breakers by leaving him penniless and homeless, and banning Susan from assisting in anyway. But, as Denise explains, two ordinary souls relied on extraordinary grace to fight back beginning with reintroducing him to the Traditional Latin Mass and placing as much emphasis on the Spiritual Works of Mercy as the Corporal Works, a balance lost on the conciliar church today, especially in the corrupt archdiocese of Boston where that city's conciliar hierarchs and scandal are synonymous. Denise illustrates a heart-wrenching scenario that provides hope for the true faith to make a comeback in her piece Two Hearts of Self-Sacrifice
