On behalf of my family, I appreciate the heartfelt prayers from so many readers - via their e-mails - for my father Lowell "Mickey" Cain, 91, who is dying from an incurable cancer which a field of medical experts have not been able to diagnose. He has received Extreme Unction and a special Plenary Indulgence from Father Brendan Hughes and waits and prays for the time when our Lord will call him home. We continue to ask St. Joseph, to whom my dad has always had a special affinity for, to give him a peaceful, happy death. Because everything is in a wait-and-see, watch-and-pray mode, we are posting the next two weeks for this current issue. Again, our gratitude for your prayers and understanding. Michael Cain, editor

- Most Recent Columns in Christ or chaos Corner by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey. We encourage you to keep tabs on Tom's articles for he truly is the the most prolific Catholic writer of this age. His articles are the most comprehensive in applying true Catholic principles to the madness that occurs daily in both secular and conciliar circles and his essays provide the simple answers to solving the maladies if only man would turn back to the King of kings and recognize the Queenship of Mary. Just as the Apostles and Christ's disciples suffered many hardships, Tom is the epitome of today's Job, for, though his family is intact, his motorhome is caput unless he can come up with the $9500. necessary to repair the engine. Without it, he is homeless and not only that, but cannot continue his speaking engagements, for he and his wife Sharon and their darling daughter Lucy Norma Mary are stuck in neutral and totally at the mercy of generous Traditional Catholics, if they do, indeed, exist.

Making Sense of sensus Catholicus|
We resume this series for, even though Father James Francis Wathen has passed on to his eternal reward, he has left us not only his words of wisdom in Making Sense of sensus Catholicus and his magnificent and irrefutable opus The Great Sacrilege, but has also given us several radio reflections. We are grateful to be able to bring you these pearls of wisdom in continuing with his fourth installment as Fr. Wathen peels away the layers of complication that the world covers everything with in order to deny the simplest, most basic point of life: Why God made us. Father resorts to the first question of the Baltimore Catechism to refute all the great minds that steer us away from the ineffable truth that we are His creations to do as He wills and if we are not willing to cooperate, then we deserve the fate that awaits us. He calls upon the brilliant Father Frederick Faber to bring home this everlasting truth and the audacity of those who think they can go it alone...for they are in for a shock when all is said and done and they pass back into dust. Father Wathen explains in God intends us to have Meaning and Purpose to our life
Gabriel Garnica In the Epistle for next week's Third Sunday after Easter we read what Saint Peter says in 1 Peter 2: 11, 'I beseech you, as strangers and pilgrims, to refrain yourselves from carnal desires that war against the soul.' It is the surrender to carnal desires that have caused the breaking of hearts today, particularly the Most Sacred and Immaculate Hearts Who weep for those hearts that have been so hardened by divorce from God's Laws and their own spouses. Gabriel Garnica points this out so poignantly in his column pointing out that if they have been unfaithful in the less serious things, we shouldn't be surprised that they have proven to be unfaithful in more serious things even to embracing and promoting the very sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance. We should not be surprised for war is hell and that is what those who discard God's will have made for themselves by holding His sacraments and precepts so lightly. Frankly, Scarlet, they don't give a damn and that's what makes it even more tragic. Gabriel explains in his column Gone With the Whim!
Treasures of Tradition
Father Trinchard, esteemed author of the books, "New Mass" Is Conclusively Invalid, Latin Mass Prayers Explained, and Apocalypse of the Mass to mention just a few, continues to provide unmitigated proof that the Novus Ordo church - Newchurch - the conciliar church of Vatican II is a New Religion and therefore cannot possibly be Catholic. His best advice is to run as fast as you can away from this "abomination of desolation" and take harbor aboard the Ark of Salvation, the Roman Catholic Church founded by Christ and kept intact in all her dogmas and doctrines until the wreckovation took full force with Vatican II and its aftermath which rendered the faithful practically impotent to do anything. Now we must for no amount of changes can alter the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church no matter how the masters of deceit pontificate. Yet, so many have been duped into believing the "party lie" that Newchurch is still Catholic! Oh, satan is clever, very clever and because the vast majority of Catholics did not truly know their Faith, they became "useful idiots" to further the insidious and diabolical agenda. Father lays out the facts in CHANGE FOR THE WORST
"By their fruits you shall know them"
We are delighted to bring you the thoughts of Erven E. Park as he has graced us with an article from his acclaimed "The Fruit Inspector Chronicles". This time he picks up on the sound-byte made famous by Army Lt. General Russel Honore that so many are "stuck on stupid" and indeed, as Erven explains, they are just that. Part and parcel of that is because the Verbal and Thought Engineers of Hades have dumbed down the masses and anesthetized their consciences through intimidation where those who take sides have grown timid and fearful of offending man's sensibilities without realizing that they have greatly offended God's sensibilities. It is truly amazing that so many have forgotten that for every action there are consequences. If we have any doubts, just look at the last 25 years how fast AIDS has spread via the perversion of sodomy. Look at the equally passionate effort to cover this up and place blame elsewhere. Look at how absolutes have been sacrificed in order to turn values and virtues upside down by making everything gray and, in the process, greatly incur the wrath of God. Do we really want to become the bile of Babel and Babylon as our Lord has warned in Apocalypse 3:16? If not, then what are we going to do about it? Erven explains in his essay Institutionalized Idiocy "STUCK ON STUPID!"
Doctors of the Church
April 21st is the traditional feast of the holy Doctor of the Church and Bishop Saint Anselm who was a crusader against lay investiture, fiercely loyal to Rome and to his vocation as a priest who loved his flocks. They rewarded him by fiercely standing behind him against mighty temporal kings. He was a Frenchman who conquered the Brits with love. He was the father of Scholastic Theology. He was the holy doctor from Piedmont whose writings and teachings became an important barometer for another Doctor of the Church - the angelic doctor St. Thomas Aquinas a little over a century later. St. Anselm was the uncompromising Archbishop of Canterbury in the middle ages who lived 76 years and is known best as the
Father of Scholasticism.
Doctors of the Church
The holy Doctor of the Church who we celebrate on April 27 was the Dutch-born Jesuit priest who played a key role in the landmark dogmatic and canonical Council of Trent and played a vital role in debating the Protestant heresies throughout Europe, especially gaining the moniker as the "Windmill of Wisdom" while whirling through his native Netherlands and Germany, Austria, Bohemia and Poland. He was a great eloquent preacher sought by prince and pauper alike. He served as mediator between Holy Roman Emperors and Popes. He also founded the University of Fribourg in 1580. One of his most famous works was "Manuel of Catholics" and he is referred to as the "Second Apostle of Germany," giving way only to the great Saint Boniface as the "First Apostle of Germany." Because of his efforts, the counter-reformation was a resounding success in Bavaria. Saint Peter of Canisius was truly the Windmill of Wisdom.
Doctors of the Church
The second day of Mary's Month of May is the Feast of the first man honored as a Doctor of the Church. That would be Saint Athanasius, the holy Bishop who withstood the brunt of the greatest apostasy in the Church until this present day when The Great Apostasy has arrived. It is in looking to this holy Doctor that we can take great hope and courage to stay the course and fight for the Faith as he did sixteen centuries ago. It was this stauch defender of Catholic truth, this Alexandrian Bishop who persisted against the Arian heresies through numerous popes. He was banished by emperors and the Arians four times. But in the end the True Faith won out, thanks to the persevereance of men like Saint Athanasius, Apostle of Tradition
Truth or Fiction, Compare for Yourself - Do we stand by Sacred Scripture as clearly delineated in the second chapter of the Epistle of St. James that one cannot be saved by faith alone, or do we subscribe to the heretical Joint Declaration of the VulgArians who sold out Catholic truth in order to get along through the apostate virus called ecumenism? Just more signs that Modern Rome is NOT Catholic as illustrated in a graphic feature from Simon Galloway's Book No Crisis in the Church?

SPEAKING SCHEDULE FOR AFTER EASTER|
Please see Tom's urgent and immediate plea for emergency financial assistance for he is stranded unless Traditional Catholics can help him recover his home. Now is the time to come to the aid of one of God's good people. See his dire plight in his Urgent Appeal
Christ or chaos is the site where Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey has posted some of the most significant articles of our times. There is probably no more prolific writer in the Traditional Catholic Movement today than Tom, whose mission in life is to save souls and to restore the patrimony of the Roman Catholic Church. Few are more dedicated to this cause in not only preaching it, but living what he preaches. He has walked and driven the journey for it is doubtful anyone - anyone - has assisted at Holy Mass at more Traditional Chapels in the United States than Tom and his wife Sharon and their young daughter Lucy. If souls can be equated to miles, than we can be most optimistic that the fruits of his labors, the persecution he has endured both within and without the
Traditional Movement, and his constant call for what Pope Pius XI called for as the only answer for world peace in Quas Primas - the restoration of the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ. Only by following His Blessed Mother's advice and honoring her as her divine Son honored and obeyed her for 30 years can we hope to attain such a lofty, but necessary goal for the sake of souls everywhere. We present several of his recent columns below since we'll only be updating and monitoring the site to alert you to his latest column once a week. We strongly encourage you to go there often for you will get the unadulterated Catholic truth and always a frank, honest, and crystal clear assessment of the current crisis and why Holy Mother Church is in eclipse as Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the Scriptures, Saints and Our Lady foretold. Tom has the solutions and it begins with prayer and perseverance and then truly knowing your Faith so you can keep it in this time of The Great Apostasy. Below are a few of his most recent ones. Each is powerful on its own. This should give the reader plenty of reading material for the month not only the few most recent articles below but by clicking on the button below seeing for the archives of his past articles at
