A rose cannot grow without its stem, a stem that sprouts thorns, and there is no more beautiful Rose which glistens with the thorns of penance, reparation and prayer than St. Rose of Lima

  Bishop Daniel Dolan shares a sermon provided by Traditional Catholic Sermons on today's holy virgin Saint Rose of Lima who sought to do penance in reparation for her sins and those of others, and struggled with her parents who wanted her to marry and have riches, but the Holy Ghost would intercede and send a sign that Rose was right. She is often depicted holding a cross and wearing a crown of roses which represented her taking up whatever crosses she could to follow Jesus even though for fifteen years she went through a desolation that could be equated to the dark night of the soul. Through her spiritual director, a missionary, she came to the Americas and working in unison with him, effected the conversion of countless souls through her penances and prayers. Truly a rose that blooms forever in Heaven as Bishop Dolan conveys in his sermon on St. Rose of Lima

Hoisted by the heretics on their own petard

    Selling the Farm right out from under the foundation of Faith. Betrayal within the Castle is the norm rather than the exception. What should be Catholic in every way is anything but for the conciliar charlatans continue to sell out true Catholicism and dare to ignore Christ's mandate.
  Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey files a troubling article on how the counterfeit church of conciliarism is selling out the faith, honoring those who openly oppose and seek to destroy the Deposit of the Faith. As Tom writes regarding yesterday's feast, "Poor King Herod the Tetrarch. He could have been 'knighted' by Joseph Ratzinger if only he could have stuck around for two millennia. Remember, Saint John the Baptist was freed from Original Sin in his mother's womb when the sound of the Mother of the One Whose precursor he was meant to be pierced his ears at the moment of the Visitation. Saint John the Baptist, just like his Divine Cousin, is in solidarity with every child in every mother's womb. Preborn babies are killed under cover of law today with those who claim, albeit falsely, lineage from the line that produced and sustained Herod the Great and Herod the Tetrarch. Why not a posthumous 'knighting' of both Herods? And while we are it, why not consider 'knighting' posthumously the members of the Sanhedrin who scourged the Apostles and warned them never to mention the Name of "that man" again, which is exactly what the conciliarists have done and why they are rewarding men such as Leon Klenicki." Klenicki belongs to the ADL and that in and of itself is enough to raise the shackles of what the Fathers at TRADITIO first reported, as Tom explains in his essay Continuing to Knight Infidels

Don't be afraid to stick your neck out. So you may get it cut off, but, if you're still sound of mind you'll realize it beats the alternative of giving in to satan. What's better: keeping your head in hell, or letting go and trust God to help you save your soul?

   On this feast where we commemorate Saint John the Baptist's Beheading, Gabriel Garnica checks in with a feature that as much as John didn't want to lose his head, he cherished his soul more. Over the centuries one of the most barbaric forms of execution has always been chopping off one's head. It's called many things, decapitation or, as the venerable Abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger calls it "decollation", which comes from the Latin word collatus which means neck and from which we derive the English word "collar." Decollate means down from the neck as in the guillotine has spoken. Heads on platters and poles are nothing new. From the earliest biblical times such savagery was employed and to the sadistic Salome and her mother, it was the ultimate perversity to request John the Baptist's head on a plate. John could easily have begged off, issued an apology that he didn't really mean to remand Herod and Herodias for their illicit marriage, and, after all, can't we just get along. That's what the leaders of the counterfeit church of conciliarism would do today for they have lost their minds and their faith. Those who are truly dedicated to Christ will not fret about losing their heads, but fear losing their souls and thus will seek to be holy. Few were as dedicated, humble, holy and uncompromising as the man who prepared the path of the Lord. Do we have that commitment to our Catholicism? Are we willing to decrease so God can increase or will we squirm away from the chopping block when push comes to shove? Gabriel lays out the scenario in What Could Be Worse Than Losing One's Head? Compromising with the World.

Where are the Augustines of today?

    Were Augustine of Hippo alive today is there any bishop who would convert him? Except for Traditional Bishops who will have nothing to do with Vatican II and all that has followed, it's highly doubtful for proselytising has been banned. We do know that the holy Doctor of the Church we honor today would see through the conciliar charade immediately and expose it at once.
  Saint Augustine, whom we celebrate today, August 28 is one of the greatest Doctors of the Church, one of the greatest single intellects ever. Like the Apostle Saint Paul, Augustine began as as a notorious sinner, embracing heresy after heresy, but when grace finally touched him through the prayer and reparation of others, this Saul turned into a Paul and his cries for truth were mostly heard and responded to in Heaven by the relentless efforts and graces of his loving, persevering mother Saint Monica and his mentor, the Bishop of Milan, the holy Doctor of the Church Saint Ambrose, who is credited with the conversion of this man from Hippo. Sadly today neither Augustine, his mother Monica or Ambrose or all the saints who passed through this veil of tears over the centuries, would recognize the counterfeit church of conciliarism as Catholic. They would have denounced from the beginning the aggiornamento and "new springtime" as heretical and extremely harmful to souls. It was the holy Augustine, born in Tagaste, Africa who is given the glorious title of "Doctor of Grace" and authored "City of God" - the magnificent opus on Christian philosophy - as well as his very popular work "Confessions" which, in his time and over the centuries, has drawn countless souls to the Faith. Other than the Angelic Doctor Saint Thomas Aquinas, no one has had more influence on Western Culture in the Church than the man we honor in today's holy Mass, none other than Saint Augustine, "The Doctor of Grace"

Batten down the hatches of your soul for that is all you can save when God gets serious about bringing man back to reality. But then that's why He does it!

  Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey has filed two articles that are pertinent to everyone, not just traditional Catholics but EVERYONE. The first one deals with a question that is always asked in times of adversity and one you can easily answer anyone asking: Yes, God allows it for the very fact that storms, hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, fires, floods, epidemics are meant to wake man up to his final end, to prepare the soul. That makes sense for when you think about it, it's truly a miracle so few lives have been lost over the years from natural disasters. God has always had ways of reminding man of his finite state though man is hard-hearted and seldom responds until it stares him in the face. Tom documents God's very intent, specifically with Sodom and Gomorrah and the consequences of those who turn their back on God and embrace perversity. There's a message in them thar clouds and that is to repent and place yourself at the mercy of the all good and merciful God Who is also all-just. Yes, the Holy Trinity has a method to the mayhem in bringing us back to the narrow path and everlasting life and it has nothing to do with political correctness. Tom explains in his article Trying to Get Our Attention.

Souls look for the truths in black and white. Instead they get read the Red Manifesto of deceit and destruction within and without.... for we have conciliarism to thank for the sad state of man's soul today!

  Dr. Droleskey provides a double dose from this weekend with a piece that equates the total caving of the counterfeit church of conciliarism to Communism. This is evident in what is going on right now in China and Joseph Ratzinger's silence in the aftermath of his heretical letter to Chinese Catholics to submit to the Communists despite the atrocities taking place and the will of God. So much for conciliarism. The Communists' total disregard for Rome, even the false intruders occupying the Vatican today in the conciliar church, is only too obvious. Tom points out how this is nothing new just with Ratzinger. No, it goes back to the Pact of Metz just before Vatican II thanks to Angelo Roncalli and Giovanni Montini, the latter being the most helpful mole of the Communists in selling out the hierarchy behind the Iron Curtain. The same treason against the Mystical Body of Christ has continued through suspected Communist spy Karol Wojtyla, and now Hegelian disciple Joseph Ratzinger who has condoned that Catholics will no longer proselytize. No wonder Russia's errors have spread so much, so far, so devastatingly just as our Lady warned at Fatima ninety years ago. Thank you conciliar "popes" for all you've done to destroy the Faith. Tom explains in his piece, So Much for Glasnost

  • Truth is no more immutable than man himself, since it evolved with him, in him, and through him

       Oh humanism, where is thy sting. This is the very magnification that truth can change and that truth is dependent on man, not God. How heretical can one get? It is the height of pride and arrogance that the Modernists consider themselves so evolved that they can overturn and expand truth to fit whatever agenda is important to them, dismissing divinely ordained truth with such ridiculous statement that truth evolved with man and "through him." Really!? If that were the case, then why would the Second Person of the Trinity, Jesus Christ, Who is Truth Itself - Absolute Truth - and Who has no beginning and no end as the Alpha and the Omega and as the Word, have deemed it necessary for the salvation of His human creations to become Incarnate - "Et Verbum caro factum est, et habitavit in nobis" (St. John 1: 14) and subject Himself to the extreme poverty and finite conditions He chose to be born into, live, and die if truth was not immutable? No, the heresy of Modernism forgets that man has not progressed but greatly regressed by abandoning the patrimony of the Church He founded and embracing the satanic principles that caused the Original Sin of Adam and Eve and since have brought empires to oblivion for they were based on the false principles of humanism and paganism. "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other: or he will sustain the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon" (St. Matthew 6: 24). Those who embrace humanism and the evolution of truth cannot have it both ways. They serve mammon for they contradict the infrangible words of our Lord and the words inspired by His Spirit - the Holy Ghost Who has been with Christ's Church from the beginning. Yet over the last 50 years each and every day the Modernists who have taken over the Church have edged closer and closer to being the mavens of mammon and therefore cannot be serving God. A good example of that is what Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey writes regularly, specifically yesterday's article Continuing to Knight Infidels. The man who approved the papal knighting of the infidel Rabbi Leon Klenicki is Father Joseph Ratzinger who is very aware of Klenicki's active participation in perpetuating the anti-Catholic Talmudic agenda through the organization of which Klenicki is most influential and has the wholehearted approval of his fuhrer with the organization of the ADL, Abe Foxman, an avowed enemy of all things truly Catholic. These three, Klenicki, Ratzinger and Foxman are blatant Modernists who believe truth can change. Ratzinger's actions nail it and his words immediately below, which as we have noted, have never been recanted or repented of, are pure heresy of which the infallible Vatican I Council stated quite clearly and emphatically: Anathema sit!

We can endorse these three sites as fully 100% Catholic in upholding the Sacred Deposit of the Faith and in full accord with the ordinary perennial, infallible Magisterium of the Church as upheld from St. Peter through Pope Pius XII. All imposters sitting upon the throne since the death of Pius XII in 1958 have proven by their words and actions that they have led the faithful astray and cannot be Catholic, for to admit they were would be to admit that the Bride of Christ was corruptible and She is not. Ergo, the conciliar church is and one all should flee from with haste and immediately no matter the carrots being dangled to deceive "even the elect." sources excellent, reliable resources to keep up with the currents. The cogent commentaries by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey, who we consider the most prolific Catholic writer alive today, and the updated no-nonsense notes from Father Moderator at Traditio, and the only blog we presently endorse, Father Anthony Cekada's blog which he has dubbed Quidlibet, which is Latin for "whatever" and that is the attitude all Catholics should hold in never taking seriously what comes out of apostate Modern Rome.

    In a galaxy far, far away from Catholic truth there are rumblings within the small army of the Resistance as well as the Imperial Troops, all over recent pronouncements by the leader of the Empire which is leading to the inevitable "Motu Wars."

      This weekend Griff Ruby begins a multi-part series on the need for a deeper study of the conciliar document Summorum Pontificum being done in order to see whether it is the answer or further contributes to the dark forces gathering to blot out souls. This then is the first episode of a series simply called: "Motu Wars," a take-off on the "Star Wars" theme for the Traditional Resistance, though determined and dedicated, is infitesmally small compared to the vast evil Empire that has taken over the governance of the Catholic galaxy. The latest Motu begs the question: Can the leader of the Empire be trusted just because of a few documents that seem to promise some good things? While many want to trust because of the decades upon decades without a legitimate leader, remember the casualties the Empire's current leader has caused throughout the past. We must be careful and beware. We must study the plans laid out for words can be clever and convincing, convincing enough "to deceive (if it were possible) even the elect" (St. Matthew 24: 24). What is really behind this sudden shift in ideologies? That is the crux of being on guard, of saving souls for there are many storm troopers out there in purple and scarlet who seek to sabotage and sack the Resistance. The Motu Wars are only going to intensify. We need to know the enemy before we become them. Griff combs the original document in deciphering the conciliar code in the first episode of this series: I. Hope Against Hope

    To ascend the Altar is to scale the mountain of sacrifice where stands the Holy of Holies behind the veil of the tabernacle which signifies the Presence of God.
    We continue this weekend with the third part of a series of sermons provided by Traditional Catholic Sermons which recorded this series given by His Excellency Bishop Donald Sanborn on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in explaining the great gift we have in the Immemorial Canonized Apostolic Mass of All Ages, known today as the Traditional Latin Mass to disassociate it with the modern aberration Novus Ordo missae which is, in effect, the very fulfillment of Christ's prophecy in St. Matthew 24: 15 as the "abomination of desolation". After thoroughly explaining in his introductory sermon on The Mass: Why Latin? and The Mass: Prayers at the Foot of the Altar, Bishop Sanborn continues with explaining the significance of entering the "Holy of Holies" by mounting the Altar where "Heaven and earth meet." His Excellency illustrates the wondrous meaning of this act of kissing the altar and incensing it (during a solemn high Mass) and why this is so important for Catholics to understand. He explains the beauty of this part of the Mass in his third sermon, which which you can listen to while you surf other ports on The Daily Catholic. The Mass: Part III - Mounting the Altar

    To look to a leader, look to how, what, when, where, who and why he was taught and you'll know his heart. Only if it is in harmony with the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts should he be followed and imitated.

      Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey presents a redux of his article on the holy Monarch of France dedicated to the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ. That king is none other than Saint Louis IX who was groomed in every way a Catholic citizen first, and then a ruler. Tom illustrates various contradictions proffered by civilization today and the current head of the counterfeit church of conciliarism as "how not to" go about seeking peace and tranquility on this earth. It cannot be accomplished without total adherence to God's Laws and subjection to Christ's Church, His spotless Bride under His rule in all things. Only then can one expect God to be favorable to our prayers. Tom shows how modern man and today's rulers at every level are the antithesis of all that the good and holy St. Louis represented and practiced at all times. It all began with his formation in his early years at the knee of his mother; the same advice he passed on to his son Phillip. Tom shares his thoughts in his column honoring St. Louis on his August 25th feast, From His Mother's Knee.

    If we truly love Christ, His Immaculate Mother, and His Church, then we'll put away those white flags and proudly proclaim, as dry martyrs in the catacombs of Catholicism, that we will never surrender to the cabal of conciliarism.

      On this day of the spotless and pure Immaculate Heart of Mary, Cyndi Cain, still recuperating from two major operations, returns to urge readers not be stained by caving to the pressures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism and their Motu madness that causes our Lady to weep and to ask why have we forgotten what her divine Son died for, why He instituted His Church upon the Rock of Peter? Why have we allowed yourselves to be deceived by the glitter of convenience and the lure of peace on man's terms? It can only be accomplished when her Immaculate Heart triumphs, and that can only be accomplished through our fiat to follow her beloved Son on the narrow path in the catacombs of His true Church. Accept no substitutes but the authentic Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Accept no less than your promise to participate and to pray the holy Rosary, do penance and offer it as a glorious bouquet in reparation for the offenses against her Immaculate Heart. That is how we can stand firm and hold the traditions passed down. We must daily surrender our hearts to God, but never can we surrender our faith! Cyndi sends out her heartfelt plea to stand firm to the Faith and stand behind those apostolates which seek to preserve the True, unadulterated Faith in her column "Stand firm, and hold the traditions..." Surrender Not!

    The slop of submitting to "the things that are Caesar's" without taking into consideration first and foremost "the things that are God's" leads to the kind of pork that fattens up at the trough of pluralism at the expense of souls.

    Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey alerts readers that BeneRatz is working on an encyclical to honor one of his predecessors. You know it is not to acknowledge the Centennial anniversary of Pope St. Pius X's landmark encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis. Ratzinger wouldn't dare laud the words of the man who one hundred years ago anathematized the man who goes by Benedict XVI. No, but he'll honor Giovanni Montini the very one who lorded over the destruction of the Catholic Church, first at Vatican II and then with the suppression of the Immemorial Mass of All Ages in favor of a stripped, syncretic synthetic rite that reduced the Mass to a mere supper and celebration. He'll honor a man who set in place the very "abomination of desolation" and ordination and episcopal rites that make validity null and void. But then what could you expect from a Modernist intent on deceiving the masses by foisting a Motu Mess on the unsuspecting? Tom gives a hint of where Ratzinger's bread is buttered as the latter lobbies for more taxation to satiate the State at the expense of the individual made in the image and likeness of God. Tom explains in his column, Feeding Caesar's Bloat

    Advice to increase our awareness of the significance of the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary

    We present an excellent sermon by Bishop Donald Sanborn from Traditional Catholic Sermons on the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in which his Excellency speaks of the awe-inspring purity within the midst of all the filth of the world today, how we can help wash away the filth with our Ave's and fiats to do the will of her divine Son by devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. His sermon can be heard at The Immaculate Heart of Mary Sermon

    Likewise Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey writes on the last two things to prepare us for the Last Things. For without our Lady's Rosary and devotion to her Immaculate Heart, we might as well cash it in. Fatima and Mary's Message have been compromised and worse, but Mary's army will not retreat but dig in in the trenches to carry on the fight to preserve the Faith and to expedite the Triumph of her Immaculate Heart. How much are we willing to cooperate? Tom shares this in his article Two Last Remedies

    Act of Reparation to the Immaculate Heart

       Most Holy Virgin, and our beloved Mother, we listen with grief to the complaints of thy Immaculate Heart, surrounded with thorns which ungrateful men place therein at every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude. Moved by the ardent desire of loving thee as our Mother and of promoting true devotion to thy Immaculate Heart, we prostrate ourselves at thy feet to prove the sorrow we feel for the grief that men cause thee and to atone by means of our prayers and sacrifices for the offenses with which men return thy tender love. Obtain for them and for us the pardon of so many sins. A word from thee will obtain grace and forgiveness for us all. Hasten O Lady, the conversion of sinners, that they may love Jesus and cease to offend God, already so much offended, and thus avoid eternal punishment. Turn thine eyes of mercy toward us so that henceforth we may love God with all our hearts while on earth and enjoy Him forever in Heaven. Amen.

    Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart

      O Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of Heaven and earth and tender Mother of men, in accordance with thy ardent wish made known at Fatima, I consecrate to thee myself, my brethren, my country and the whole human race. Reign over us and teach us how to make the Heart of Jesus reign and triumph in us and around us as It has reigned and triumphed in thee.

       Reign over us, dearest Mother, that we may be thine in prosperity and in adversity; in joy and in sorrow; in health and in sickness; in life and in death. O most compassionate Heart of Mary, Queen of Virgins, watch over our minds and our hearts and preserve them from the deluge of impurity which thou didst lament so sorrowfully at Fatima. We want to be pure like thee. We want to atone for the many sins committed against Jesus and thee. We want to call down upon our country and the whole world the peace of God in justice and charity.

       Therefore, we now promise to imitate thy virtues by the practice of a Christian life without regard to human respect. We resolve to receive Holy Communion on the First Saturday of every month and to offer thee five decades of the Rosary each day together with our sacrifices in a spirit of reparation and penance. Amen.

    Vick may be sick, but the doggone cancer of conciliarism will imprison modern man in an infernal kennel from which there is no escape from the carnage of souls.

      On the same day that Michael Vick finally revealed what practically everyone else knew: that he was guilty of dog abuse - as the world feigns shock and outrage over cruelty to animals while they don't blink an eye that 4,000 human lives are snuffed out each day through the abominable sin of abortion - cold blooded murder under the cover of an illegal, immoral law, Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey files an article on just why things are so topsy-turvy. Modern man has forgotten his mission. Modern man has forgotten his Supreme King. Modern man has abandoned his faith. When man melds Modernism into his menu and expects political correctness to guide his way by towing the Judeo-Masonic-Protestant line in order to get along, well he'll get along alright - get along the path that leads to hell. Those results are inevitable as Tom explains in his essay The Carnage of Modernity and Modernism

    "Winning is the only thing because history will not remember the losers." - Vince Lombardi, 1961
    "Revising history and denying it is the only thing!" - Frederico Lombardi, 2007

       Two Lombardis represent polar opposites. One, the late Vince Lombardi was as ethical as they come but still was successful by exacting the best from his men. The second, the successor of long-time Opus Dei spinmeister Navarro Valls, the Jesuit Father Frederico Lombardi, like his predecessor, bask in doublespeak and are more obvious in their lies than Bill Clinton...and that's going some, folks! The Fathers at TRADITIO Network expose the obvious that the latter Lombardi has no intention of telling the truth, but then considering who he answers to with both Tarsisio Bertone and BeneRatz, as Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey documents to the left in his latest article, why should we ever expect truth from the counterfeit church of conciliarism. It would be an oxymoron. There can be no truth from those who suppress the Truth. The Fathers point this out if you just scroll down once you've clicked on the article and you'll see more of the total erosion of the sensus Catholicus from diminishing the Assumption of our Lady in favor of a voodoo-like cult to a Dutch Potentate calling for everyone to call God "Allah" to the total sellout of proselytizing the Faith by Ratzinger's orders to the Muslims that the conciliarists will not try to convert Muslims if they help out with WYD. Hmm, wasn't that the same flimsy excuse Angelo Roncalli used in caving to the Communists with the Pact of Metz in 1962? There's much more if you scroll down further; things you wouldn't believe if we told you. The Fathers cite the latest brouhaha in Modern Rome with the BBC over denial Lombardi tried to pull an endrun by altering content on Wikipedia. Many people do, but what makes this interesting is Lombardi's denial and flimsy retorts. More of what we've come to expect from the VulgArians. The Fathers explain with By day, Vatican Press Secretary; by night, caped crusader of revisionist history

    The Masonic Creed Crows Ever Louder over the Cova as the Cover-up Continues

      Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey focuses on Fatima and the devious diabolical disorientation orchestrated by the five knowing ones in the Vatican over the last decade or so. One is dead and gone, but those who pulled off the coup are now in charge of the chicken coop. To carry the metaphor a little further, a farrow is a litter of swine and what the troika of Frs. Joseph Ratzinger, Angelo Sodano and Tarcisio Bertone have done, with the full knowledge of the sneaky Dario Hoyos, is akin to the dirtiest of swine in daring to alter and twist the Mother of God's own words and redirect the vital Message of Fatima to a humanist resolution. Tom will have none of it as he documents what previous reliable and true Popes said, what the Fatima visionaries said, and what Ratzinger himself said in an honest momeant. Faust was the name of the philosopher who sold his soul to the devil - Mephistopheles for power and wisdom. Don't know about wisdom, but these men have truly sold out for power, the power to conceal and change the words of Heaven. It is all proof that these men are indeed "Farrows of Faust" as Tom explains in illustrating they are no better than the Masonic mayor of Ourem Artur de Oliveira Santos (no relation to visionary Lucia de Santos). This anti-Catholic not only jailed the Fatima visionaries but threatened to boil them in oil if they would not tell him the Blessed Virgin Mary's secret to them. The Masons are still at it, but instead of oil, they're now employing the ways of the farrows of Faust to slop around in the mud of Modernism and Revisionism. Tom documents the demise of Fatima by these deceivers and blasphemers in his article In League With the Mayor of Ourem

    On this day 93 years ago the holy Pope Saint Pius X passed to his heavenly reward. His motto was always
    and he was the strongest of crusaders against the sythesis of all heresies - Modernism, which we are featuring on these pages each day in the countdown between his issuing his Syllabus of Errors against Modernism on July 3, 1907Lamentabili Sane and his landmark encyclical on September 3, 1907 Pascendi Dominici Gregis. One of the greatest and holiest of men to validly rule the universal Church over the last 500 years, the holy Giuseppe Cardinal Sarto, whose feast we celebrate in two weeks, was born in Riese, Italy. He was raised to the Papal Throne on August 9th 1903 and died this day in 1914. It was the saintly Papa Pio X who brought to a conclusion the codification of Canon Law, referred today as the Pio-Benedictine Code of Canon Law. He also instituted the publication and collection of the Acta Apostolicae Sedis, documenting quotes in unabridged versions of law and documents. He decreed that children from the age of seven on could receive Holy Communion and encouraged frequent, even daily attendance at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for he was truly the Pope of the Holy Eucharist whose motto from the beginning of his papacy as the 257th Successor of Peter, "To Restore All Things in Christ." Coincidentally today we also commemorate the deaths of two other Popes. 1,023 years ago today Pope John XIV, 136th Successor of Peter, passed on. His pontificate lasted only 9 months for he had been elected as a result of the intrigues of the Roman Families and he was incarcerated by a rival family Francone in Castel Sant'Angelo where he died of hunger on this day in 984. Eight-hundred and thirty-nine years later on the same day, the 251st Successor of Peter Pope Pius VII, beaten down by the Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte whom he had earlier crowned in Paris, died. His pontificate lasted over 23 years and amidst the roller-coaster between the Emperor and Pope, graces did result with Napoleon repenting on his deathbed. Pius VII is responsible for creating the white and yellow papal flag.

      Today is the Double Feast of the holy Abbot and Doctor of the Church Saint Bernard of Clairvaux. He was a truly dedicated man who turned his back on the world and took over 30 men with him to devote their lives to God. He built monasteries throughout western Europe and was the confidante of popes and kings, beggars and paupers. He was the main man in preaching the purpose of the Crusade to recover the holy land where Our Lord and Savior walked. Bernard traversed the continent stirring men through prayer and reason, never compromising the Truths and Traditions. He was responsible for the revival of the Cistercian Order. This holy and mystic Abbot from France composed one of the most beautiful prayers ever created - the Memorare to the right. For more on this great saint God raised up in the middle ages, see Crusading Hammer of Heretics.

       Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, our Mother. To thee do we come, before thee do we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer us. Amen.

    Composed by Saint Bernard of Clairvaux

    We continue this weekend with the second part of a series of sermons provided by Traditional Catholic Sermons which recorded this series given by His Excellency Bishop Donald Sanborn on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in explaining the great gift we have in the Immemorial Canonized Apostolic Mass of All Ages, known today as the Traditional Latin Mass to disassociate it with the modern aberration Novus Ordo missae which is, in effect, the very fulfillment of Christ's prophecy in St. Matthew 24: 15 as the "abomination of desolation". After thoroughly explaining in his introductory sermon on The Mass: Why Latin?, Bishop Sanborn continues with the Prayers at the Foot of the Altar and the Confiteor in explaining why holy Mother Church has established these necessary rubrics and liturgy in the Ordinary of the Mass and how the counterfeit church of conciliarism has abandoned so much because it is man-centered, not God-centered as the Tridentine liturgy had reasserted and codified, setting in stone "in perpetuity" by Pope St. Pius V the only true Catholic Mass that could be said. His Excellency illustrates the beauty of this part of the Mass in his second sermon, which which you can listen to while you surf other ports on The Daily Catholic. The Mass: Introductory Prayers

    Fr. Ratzinger, meet St. Hyacinth

      Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey, in honor of Friday's saint Saint Hyacinth, presents a fascinating account of this extraordinary saint and compares his zeal, faith and determination to please God and trust totally in God to the humanistic, Hegellian attitude we are confronted with by Father Joseph Ratzinger, posing as Benedict XVI as if he is a pope, let alone a Catholic. Tom shows how the holy Dominican St. Hyacinth and the Modernist Ratzigner are polar opposites in God's eyes and the ways of the Church He established upon the Rock of Peter for all time. Tom illustrates the stark contrasts and wonders how long it will take Catholics to realize the difference and why we must reject BeneRatz and all he stands for just as we must reject the counterfeit church of conciliarism as the antithesis of holy Mother Church. Hyacinth gave every second of his life to proselytize and destroy pagan idols whereas Ratzinger goes out of his way to declare he won't, but rather accommodate the unbelievers in their false religions, even praise them at the expense of souls. All to please man, not God. Tom explains in his column for the Double Feast of St. Hyacinth, Compare and Contrast

    The subliminal intrepid interloper that we innocently invited into our homes decades ago has stayed way too long! What will it take to evict this intruder?
      From the first day the television pattern with the Indian in black and white was created and posted on your screen in the 40's, satan was a busy beaver. Today he has conquered the masses through the one-eyed monster also known as the boob-tube which has not only created a civilization of couch potatoes, but countless souls who are clueless to how they have made it their god by arranging their entire schedule, including prayer and family time, around this siren of sin that has been given prominence in our homes. We are talking, of course, of the television and Dr. Droleskey files an article that should prompt each of us to sit up and take notice if we really realize how much we've been programmed by the lure of lucifer, masked in the images on the screen that beckon us in the same manner the serpent lured Eve: with the promise to become like God; not by prayer, but by daring to be someone else than God created us, by daring to live a lifestyle offensive to virtue, by daring us to be mesmerized by naturalistic nabobs whom we at one time called heroes and role models. No wonder it was so easy to be dumbed down as Tom takes us on a nostalgic trip that might not be as you remember. He explains in Neglected Naturalists

    Confronting the Arrogance of Conciliarism within Traditional Circles. We must smoke 'em out before they devour more souls!

      On this day when holy Mother Church honors Saint Joachim, the father of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we should strive to emulate his guidance and seek those virtues in our shepherds to guide us. We need the dragonslayers of truth to come forward because the enemy must be contained. There was a commercial many years ago for Marlboro Cigarettes that went, 'you can take a man out of the country, but you can't take country out of the man.' So also today we'd apply that to something that has clouded minds, hearts and souls for nearly 50 years much worse than tobacco ever could. "You can take a man out of the sacrilegious Novus Ordo, but only grace will take the Novus Ordo sacrileges out of the man." We are talking of the dangers of a far more dangerous essence than cigarette smoke. That would be the "smoke of satan" spewing from the beast which has penetrated and poisoned the sensus Catholicus. What is even more dangerous is telling us it isn't dangerous, that it's just a cloud that we should pay no attention to. This is the essence of John Gregory's article today for it is what can happen if Catholics inhale the Motu Mess business and cave to the cavalier arrogance of Novus Ordo priests, many of whom have already infiltrated seemingly traditional communities. There should be a sign posted above the door of every true church: "SUPREME GOD'S WARNING: The smoke of satan can result in the loss of your soul." Is your church free of such dangerous smoke? If not, who is going to do clear the air of this deadly smoke? It may take laymen to sound the alarm. One such a layman is John Gregory who give us his firsthand experience, and, even though he is "just a lay man," he returns after several months on hiatus with an article that should perk our senses and put us on guard. You'll understand when you read, So What!?!

       August Queen of Heaven, Sovereign Mistress of the Angels, who didst receive from the beginning the mission and the power to crush the serpent's head, we beseech thee to send thy holy angels, that under thy command and by thy power they may pursue the evil spirits, encounter them on every side, resist their bold attacks, and drive them hence into the abyss of woe. Most holy Mother, send thy angels to defend us and to drive the cruel enemy from us. All ye holy angels and archangels, help and defend us. O good and tender Mother! Thou shalt ever be our Love and our Hope. Holy Angels and Archangels, keep and defend us. Amen.

    An ideal example of why the Novus Ordo Profane can never measure up to the Sublime of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition. No Motu Mess can change that, especially on the Solemnity of the Assumption.

    For the Solemnity of the Assumption we reach into our archives to bring you an article written by Kevin Tierney three years ago in the pre-Motu days. We might alert you that nothing has changed from the text he quotes. It's important to see the differences he points out just for the Propers of today's Mass to show that there is no way the two rites can ever be combined. One is a treasure beyond measure and the other not fit for swine. Tierney pointed out how the fullness of the heavenly virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity can only be attained through the divine rite. He showed how this is so clearly absolute in the Traditional Latin Mass and so maddingly ambiguous in the synthetic man-made Novus Ordo that it reeks of Modernism. Omissions and denials permeate the 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time - another novelty of the New Order expanded into the innovation of a three year cycle to further dilute and pollute. Kevin exposes the stark differences between the Church's total truths of the Traditional Latin Mass and the vulgar vernacular Novus Ordo that make it as evident as black and white. He explains in The Fullness of the Heavenly Virtues are not Ordinary

  • Taking Her Rightful Place

  • Wasted Time and Money and Effort

  • Enemies of Souls Universally

  • "What in this dawn before which the brightest constellations pale? Laurence, who has been shining in the August heavens as an incomparable star, is well nigh eclipsed and becomes but the humble satellite of the Queen of Saints, whose triumph is preparing beyond the clouds. Mary stayed on earth after her Son's Ascension, in order to give birth to His Church; but she could not remain for ever in exile. Yet she was not to take her flight to Heaven until this new fruit of her maternity had acquired the growth and strength which it belongs to a mother to give. How sweet to the Church was this dependence! - a privilege given to her members by our Lord in imitation of Himself. As we saw at Christmas-tme, the God-Man carried first in the arms of His Mother, gathering His strength and nourishing His life at her virginal breast; so the mystical body of the Man-God, the Holy Church, received, in its first years, the same care from Mary as the divine Child our Emmanuel. As Joseph heretofore at Nazareth, Peter was now ruling the house of God; but our Lady was none the less to the assembly of the faithful the source of life in the spiritual order, as she had been to Jesus in His Humanity. On the day of Pentecost the Holy Ghost and every one of His gifts rested first upon her in all fulness; every grace bestowed on the privileged dwellers in the cenacle was given more eminently and more abundantly to her. The sacred stream of the river maketh the city of God joyful, because first of all the Most High has sanctified His Own tabernacle, made her the the well of living waters, which run with a strong stream from Libanus...The Spouse, the hurch on earth, the Church in Heaven, all were waiting for her, who had tended the vine and strengthened its roots, to utter a word such as that which had heretofore brought down the Spouse to earth. But today Heaven, not earth, was to be the gainer. 'Flee away, O my Beloved' It was the voice of Mary about to follow the fragrant footsteps of the Lord her Son up to the eternal mountains whither her own perfumes had preceded her."

    When you Clare enough to do your very best for God

    Though a few days late, Gabriel Garnica files an interesting piece on how Saint Clare could influence modern man and woman. What the holy Clare did to preserve her town and the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar from being profaned might be considered heroic by feminists today because Clare was a woman. What modern women and those politically correct pundits forget is that Clare did it not to assert her feminineness but because of it. Her heart was torn at the prospects of what could occur if the infidels conquered Assisi. Thus, with a hurting, but hopeful heart she took measures to preserve the most precious Entity in her life - Jesus Christ, truly present Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Most Blessed Sacrament and placing all her trust in Him to preserve them from captivity. She knew God would not fail a trusting and pure heart. If only today's woman would follow her example and realize the role God intended for her in spiritually partnering with Him to populate Heaven. Were they to do so, they'd be amazed how the men and all mankind would change for the better. Gabriel gives us a hint of this in his column Why Saint Clare Matters So Much Today

    Time for Ratzinger, Bertone et al to pack up their lies and get out!

      The Fathers at the TRADITIO Network have said what every true Catholic needs to hear: Ratzinger and Bertone and the rest of their conciliar ilk need to go. The fact that they are not true bishops should bother every Catholic in the world for, as Father Anthony Cekada proved, "without true bishops there cannot be true priests, without true priests there cannot be the True Presence." This is exactly what the Modernists have been working toward, exactly what St. Francis of Assisi and St. Alphonsus Liguori and Father Carl Pulvermacher foretold. It is what the Apostle who bares his soul in the Epistle for the Eleventh Sunday After Pentecost (1 Corinthians 15: 1-10), Saint Paul warned of, especially in 2 Thessalonians 2: 10-11, warned. Yet lie after lie after lie coming from the Modern Vatican of the VulgArians has not awakened the sensus Catholicus that so many have "believed a lie" and this has enabled the "operation of error" that found the door of the sanctuary 40 years ago and has firmly implanted itself in the conscience of Catholics to the terrible detriment of souls, countless souls who are no longer scandalized when the proud potentates of Vatican II refuse to apologize for their scurrilous sex & embezzlement scandals, but will bend over backward to apologize for Catholic truth and tradition. It is all imploding, though not fast enough for Traditional Catholics who know very well that they are not, cannot be true bishops and the men they have "ordained" not true priests because His Holiness Pope Leo XIII already ruled on that infallibly with his Papal Bull Apostolicae Curae (below right) on the total nullity of Anglican ordinations and episcopal consecrations. Considering those are not valid and that their rite is even more reverent than anything in the Novus Ordo we can justly say that holy Mother Church has already spoken. The Fathers are right. It is time for Father Joseph Ratzinger, Father Tarcisio Bertone, Father William Levada and the rest of the sorry tepid templars the world over to book a lifetime reservation at a contemplative monastery where they can have the only opportunity to save their immortal souls through total penitence and penance. The Fathers point out the facts that conciliarists can't be trusted as far as they they can be thrown though all should see clearly how for the last 40 years they've thrown out all Catholic things except those that are still advantageous, for now, to lure true Catholics into their larcenous lair. See, Benedict-Ratzinger's Secretary of State, Unrepentant

    While the world blithely and busily buzzes and bothers about Barry Bonds, we should all remember what's really important: you can never fool the One Who keeps score!

      Following his literary homerun on the feast of Saint Philomena on how true Catholics must follow her example and can never compromise with modern culture as he so expertly illustrated in his essay Mutually Irreconcilable: Modern Culture and the Catholic Faith, Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey is back on the mound of morality, rubbing the resin of reason. Considered by many the lay St. John Vianney of our day, Tom practices what he preaches. He's been there and done that, and because he knows whereof he speaks, he holds nothing back in reminding all what true, really true, commitment to being Catholic means. No secular sliders, no conciliar curveballs, no bull blooper pitches, just a straight faith-fueled fastball to our heart and conscience to brush us back in realizing too many of us place too much emphasis on sports and things of this world. As hard as that may be to hear, it is a necessity for if we fail to sacrifice we may not only get benched in Purgatory until the end of days, but we could strike out, landing in hell. We must pray for the souls of those hyped "stars and celebrities" who would be gods to the world, but are children of God. We must pray they repent and pray they do not gravely affect our children or ourselves as well. We can start by striking out the world, the flesh and the devil by banning them from our daily lives. We must remember that those who are idolized are in dire need, not of temporal things, but of spiritual things such as the one true Faith. It's the only way they'll be able to win, and the only way we can win. We can't win by sitting passively on the bench. Those who idolize the idolators have lost their perspective as Tom points out in illustrating how corrupt sports and competition have become and why Barry Bonds symbolizes a world gone mad. They call it a game, but the culture of sports has become much more than a game. Sports and Entertainment have become an obsession that can get us ejected from the contest of life and leave us shutout by our Lord on the final day. As Christ would say, Bonds and those who seek after fleeting things with nary a thought as to the morality and rightfulness of the means to the end, have already received their rewards. What about us? How assured are we that we'll have a neverending season ticket to Heaven? Unless we change our stance, our approach, and eliminate the bad habits that have us in a slump, we'll end up empty-handed, barryied (pardon the pun)in our sins and bonded (can't help the puns) to the devil. Tom points out why he walked out of the game and hasn't returned and why we should do the same. There's wisdom in his words and actions as you'll see in his article God's Laws Apply at All Times

    Read why Conciliar Orders, just as Anglican Orders, are Null and Void for ordinations and episcopal consecrations as determined by holy Mother Church through Pope Leo XIII's Papal Bull Apostolicae Curae

    Empty Seminaries, empty souls, empty tabernacles. It all equals empty empathy for those who excuse Vatican II as not the cause of the diabolic disorientation that has destroyed the Faith of so many.

    Having preceded Father Anthony Cekada by four years in a High School Seminary, yet far ignorant of the knowledge he has acquired since, I can attest to Fr. Cekada's latest response to the inane rationalization still being peddled by The Wanderer which seems to think the pope can do no wrong but the very men who he appointed are the culprits. Have they forgotten Harry Truman's epoch words, "The buck stops at that top"? No, their agenda, just as the writer James K. Fitzpatrick wrote, is to bury their head in the sand and not see the obvious. What makes this all the more glaring is that The Wanderer published this article on the traditional feast of the patron of priests (see below) Saint Jean Marie Baptiste Vianney. Fr. Cekada, certainly one of the world's most proficient and prominent traditional theologians, files a rebuttal to the superficial and false reasoning of Mr. Fitzpatrick and the eons of duped souls who cannot connect the dots that the infiltration of the seminaries and the closing of the minor seminaries, long the seed bed of vocations, had to be closed down in order to further the Modernistic tendecies of Vatican II. After all, those planted to disrupt and sow doubt had already saturated the ranks even during the time of Pope Pius XII, who tried to curb it with his encyclical (below), and the Modernists, in their plotting, could not afford to face resistance from a younger crop who might challenge views that were diametrically opposed to the sensus Catholicus. Without minor seminaries, vocations would be harder to foster. Without holy priests, there would be few to emulate and be touched by God's grace. And, as Fr. Cekada has so perfectly pointed out, "without true bishops there are no true priests, without true priests there is no Blessed Sacrament. Without God is the triumph of the antichrist." Over the past 40-plus years we can now see the reality of that. Over 50% of my seminary professors left the priesthood in the aftermath of Vatican II's devastation and change. Fruits? There are none as Fr. Cekada points out in his latest Quidlibet reply Seminary High Schools after Vatican II

    Less than a decade before Vatican II was hatched, Pope Pius XII warned of the dangers

       On Sunday we observe the 67th anniversary of His Holiness Pope Pius XII's 19th encyclical and what many believe, one of his greatest - Humani generis in which the last true Sovereign Pontiff dealt with the growing modernism and liberal tendencies lurking on the horizon and slithering into the Church. He wrote this magnificent encyclical in order to try to curb these false and dangerous opinions which were threatening to undermine the foundations of Catholic doctrine. To go back and read it today, one can easily see how it applies ever moreso to our time than it did in the relatively calm, innocent fifties before the revolution of Vatican II that set the trend for the sixties and the further sellout of the faith by eclipsing the true Church with the usurpers who followed, men who Pius XII was warning of in this very encyclical. One reason this encyclical has not had as much play as others is because when it was written, most of the bishops buried it even at the beginning of the fifties, either because they didn't think it applied to them then, or worse, they did and sought to conceal it. Another possible problem is that it could very well have been drowned out by the dogmatic decree Pius XII would declare three months later with the Dogma of the Assumption on November 1, 1950. Either way, this encyclical ranks with Saint Pius X's Pascendi Dominici Gregis in exposing the tactics of the Modernists. Definitely worth a read to see how in those seemingly golden days of the Church in America, there were serious problems rumbling and roiling beneath the surface. The lava was boiling and it would be less than a decade before it erupted. See for yourself with Pope Pius XII's encyclical Humani Generis

    Do we have the guts to follow Saints Lawrence, Philomena and Clare?

      This weekend we celebrate three saints (actually five when we include Roman martyrs Sts. Tiburtius and Susanna) who are the antithesis of what the conciliar church thinks folks should act today. We're talking about St. Lawrence, the holy Deacon who willingly accepted his martyrdom in legendary manner, asking his roasters to turn him over, he was done on one side as the Renaissance painting by Titian to the left depicts. Saint Philomena, one of Traditional Catholics' favorite saints, gave her life to preserve her faith and purity and had the angels fighting for her. Will the angels fight for us? Tiburtius and Susanna followed St. Lawrence and young Philomena in giving their lives rather than offer sacrifice to the false gods. Do you know of one conciliar bishop, priest or deacon who would willingly sacrifice himself for Christ and undergo such torture rather than conforming to the conciliar collective in compromising with the enemy on all fronts? It reminds one of Abraham who could not find ten just men, doesn't it? Traditional Catholics must be prepared to suffer the slings and arrows and grilling by those wedded to the world, for surely the same manner of persecution is not far off as the New World Order and One World Religion take shape before our very eyes as the beast seeks to take total control as the prince of the world, the prince of darkness. In the 1200's just as today, Saracens (another term for infidel, that is Moslems), fanatically dedicated to the very prince of darkness, threatened the city of Assisi and all within it's mountain abodes. St. Clare didn't blink. Rather, she trusted in God and took matters into her own hands, outraged that the Emperor Frederick II would employ infidels against Pope Innocent IV and his armies in storming the hills of Assisi. As The Lives of the Saints relates, "In 1244, Emperor Frederick II, then at war with the Pope, was ravaging the valley of Spoleto, which was part of the patrimony of the Holy See. He employed many Saracens in his army, and a troop of these infidels came in a body to plunder Assisi. St. Damien's church, standing outside the city walls, was one of the first objectives. While the marauders were scaling the convent walls, Clare, ill as she was, had herself carried out to the gate and there the Sacrament was set up in sight of the enemy. Prostrating herself before it, she prayed aloud: 'Does it please Thee, O God, to deliver into the hands of these beasts the defenseless children whom I have nourished with Thy love? I beseech Thee, good Lord, protect these whom now I am not able to protect.' Whereupon she heard a voice like the voice of a little child saying, 'I will have them always in My care.' She prayed again, for the city, and again the voice came, reassuring her. She then turned to the trembling nuns and said, "Have no fear, little daughters; trust in Jesus." At this, a sudden terror seized their assailants and they fled in haste. Shortly afterward one of Frederick's generals laid siege to Assisi itself for many days. Clare told her nuns that they, who had received their bodily necessities from the city, now owed it all the assistance in their power. She bade them cover their heads with ashes and beseech Christ as suppliants for its deliverance. For a whole day and night they prayed with all their might- and with many tears, and then 'God in his mercy so made issue with temptation that the besiegers melted away and their proud leader with them, for all he had sworn an oath to take the city.'" Yes, indeed, these saints this weekend, along with Saturday's holy Martyrs St. Tibertius, Susanna and the wonderful, miraculous Saint Philomena whom the conciliarist felt necessary to dispatch as not authentic (they should talk about authenticity!!!), all serve to show us that just as in their time, so also today, even moreso, we are the Church Militant! Let's fight for what we believe in then! For the Propers honoring these saints, see Weekend Warriors for Christ

    The simple, Catholic remedies offered by the Cure of Ars are the Cure for today's ills. How many sacerdotes are willing to minister to souls and tell them what they need to hear for the spiritual welfare of their souls?

    Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey files a late piece dealing with how St. Jean Marie Baptiste Vianney would smile on the works of those traditional priests and bishops who dare not compromise with the world or with any religion that caters to the world for the Cure of Ars preached penance and reparation, and stern measures to block out the world, the flesh and the devil by deeper devotion in prayer and focus to God and things of Heaven, including the Final Four Things, Death, Judgment, Heaven and hell. Tom shares the wisdom and common sense of St. John Vianney's sermon "I come on behalf of God" for it is a fact that cannot be disputed that those who follow Vatican II have caved to the "ethos that has mocked Christ and devastated souls." Tom explains in his article for the feast of the Cure d'Ars, Serving Souls to the Point of Death

      In honor of the holy patron of priests, Saint Jean Marie Vianney, the beloved Cure of Ars in France, we present three pieces that bring home the importance of the holy priesthood and why the devil has worked tirelessly to destroy the priesthood so that, from 1968 on, other than those few men ordained in the pre-Vatican II true Rite of Holy Orders by authentic Successors of the Apostles, the rest of the lot are not valid priests nor valid bishops and thus, as Father Cekada said "without true bishops to ordain true priests there can be no holy Sacrament of the Altar" with the result being the triumph of the antichrist. It is time to go back to square one and listen to a holy priest who warned against this because of one problem, the lukewarmness of Catholics who dropped their guard to how powerful satan is. The Cure d'Ars sermon kicks off a series of written sermons by holy saints we will be featuring in Traditional Sermons from true Saints. We will run this in addition to the audio sermons by today's true bishops and priests striving for upholding the ideals of those saints. "On the Lukewarmness of Souls"

    In addition, we bring you a redux of the magnificent article written by the late traditional pioneer priest Father James F. Wathen, author of the magnificent, never refuted work The Great Sacrilege In his moving essay, Father illustrates how we can only marvel at the fact that out of all the men, kings, rulers, leaders throughout time and the world, only a consecrated, validly ordained priest can forgive sins, confect the Most Blessed Sacrament at Holy Mass, and be there for so many who rely not on the man per se, but on his God-given powers conferred upon him. For every true priest it is a humbling thought! For every lay person, it is something we should never forget and cherish the dwindling number of faithful priests - the lifeline of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. He so beautifully measured the treasure of The Value of Traditional Priests.

    Running the gamut, we present an article for the feast of St. Jean Marie Vianney, first run in New Oxford Review by Matthew Kauth, pastor of St. Francis of Assisi in Franklin, NC, a conservative conciliar parish in the Smoky Mountains. Though it comes from Novus Ordo sources, the words point to why there are so few good priests, why there are so few true priests today. Why Are So Few Priests Holy?

    Wanted: A Political Candidate a Catholic Can Vote For in Good Conscience; one who will uphold God's will in all things without compromise.

    Few Catholics today are willing to speak out and tell it like it really is with no fear of reprisal from the political correct cadre of cowards, but Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey, one of the foremost political science experts and definitely the most astute applier of true Catholic papal teaching, alerts every American of how true peace and harmony can be achieved: by working unceasingly and uncompromisingly for the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ. Unpopular? Maybe, but it is the only course to follow for all others will lead to doom. As Tom points out in one of the two columns on the same subject, "When are Catholics going to learn that naturalism and inter-denominationalism and religious indifferentism are lies from the devil and thus can never be the foundation of social order? There is no such thing as 'Judeo-Christian' 'values,' for example. There is Catholic truth alone that is the basis of order within individual souls and hence in each and every nation on the face of this earth. It is thus Catholic truth--and none other that we are called to propagate. Although I am personally withdrawn from everything to do with electoral politics and attempt to explain to others the futility of our naturalist, Judeo-Masonic system of government and politics, the only purpose to even consider running for public office is to articulate Catholic truth so that a few seeds might be planted in the souls of one or two individuals here and there. We must think and speak and act confessionally as Catholics at all times without counting the costs, without considering any earthly gain." That is the narrow way that too few are willing to take, too few are willing to give up their comfort zones and temporal niceties to seek the truth. There is only one Truth - the Perfect Truth and it is only that Truth that will set us free. Tom warns that if we do not know our Faith, we will be engulfed by the world, the flesh and the devil in two excellent essays, one he issued a few days ago which we highlight here today Not Over Until the Last Day and his latest essay, a follow-up to the former in which he reasserts Catholic truth in Things Repugnant to the Peace and Happiness of Eternity

    In accord with Tom's two articles to the left, we bring you the excellent series he wrote four years ago on Catholicism and the State in which he first showed to all the very truths that he cites in his most recent articles. Tom covers the causes and effects of why God cannot "bless America" until she gets it right with God. Tom explains in this enlightening 8-part series Catholicism and the State

    The Motu Mess is the Slavery of Sold Souls for though they might have the Latin Mass, as part of Ratzinger's One World Ecumenical Church, they will always be deprived of the Integral Catholic Faith. Not good! Definitely, not Catholic!

    It's been one month since the Motu Proprio Summorem Pontificum was released. Already we can see the fallout and the grave dangers of souls selling out. For documentation of the dangers you only need scroll down to see the articles posted over the last month. In addition, the faithful have, thanks to Traditional Catholic, a library of excellent sermons and talks that we want to highlight and bring to your attention. While we will continue the series of sermons His Excellency Bishop Donald Sanborn gave two years ago on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in explaining the great gift we have in the Immemorial Canonized Apostolic Mass of All Ages in future issues, today we want to bring you two powerful sermons by Father Anthony Cekada who nails exactly what the Motu Mess is and why all must say "No to the Motu". He was one who foretold exactly what Ratzinger would do and Fr. Cekada nailed it, but warns all to not be blinded by the bright rainbow of the Latin Mass for that is indeed what the arch-heretic Benedict XVI is doing for, as Father emphasizes, Ratzinger "will give them the Latin Mass in his One World Religion, but he will never "give them the integral Catholic Faith." This was recorded well pre-Motu and it's uncanny how Fr. Cekada was exactly right on as you'll see in his sermon Ratzinger's Frankenchurch Heresy.

    One of the first responders when the Motu Proprio was released, Fr. Cekada breaks it down to show why the Motu Mass is invalid and part of a false religion, part of the great rainbow of ecumenical enimas that cause the diahhrea of doctrine and will eventually cause the "eventual death of Vatican II." But for the present Father Cekada alerts all the omen voiced by the late Fr. Carl Pulvermacher that "they will allow the Latin Mass again when there are no longer true priests to say it." As Fr. Cekada asserts that is what is happening now for "without real bishops, there are no real priests; without real priests there is no Real Presence; without the Real Presence there is no God to worship. It is the triumph of the antichrist." This is a fast-paced powerful 27 minute sermon you don't want to miss and, as always you can listen to it while you surf other ports on The Daily Catholic. But by all means listen to: The Motu Mass Benefits and Dangers

    Beware of the Motu Moat. Do not cross over. It is a Trick that will end in being engulfed in the deadly, boiling oil of the Novus Ordo and the heresies of the counterfeit church of conciliarism.

      The man-made fortress, that is the counterfeit church of conciliarism in which the VulgArians snuck into the Castle Keep of the True Church half a century ago to stake their claim as if it were theirs, is crumbling badly. It needs reinforcements that God refuses to provide for they have turned away from Him and His ordaining will intended for His True Church; so much so that the Borgia-type rascal Ratzinger has lowered the drawbridge in trying to lure in traditionalists to help pay for the reconstruction of the reform of the reform. The Fathers at TRADITIO Network document that the FSSP is fine with it and, from what we have seen so far in the response from Bishop Bernard Fellay, the SSPX is ripe for surrender as well. Using the facade of the SSPX and FSSP guarding the bridge, many will be duped into crossing over the moat of apostasy. We've seen one bridge collapse already last week. This drawbridge will surely collapse into the Motu Moat. Alas, beware, it's a Dead-End and and those who surrender will be stranded, isolated by God for He has withdrawn His graces from those who think they have a better idea than the Divine. The Fathers, in this piece and several others as you scroll, present several points that every Traditional Catholic should take seriously in exposing the Motu for what it is: a Deadly Trap! They need to realize that before shedding their armor and marching in rote across the great divide, they should look who mans the Keep today and see who he aligns with: the very men who the Magisterium has declared anathema sit! Stay with your bunker and continue the battle. Do not recognize the Robber Baron Barbarians who occupy the Keep. Do not be fooled. We can do so by Keeping the Faith. The only way to Keep it is by Knowing it and launching that knowledge with unyielding force at those poor dupes who are throwing down their shields and weapons and giving up. The Fathers warn in Indult Superior Turns Stooge in Unwittingly Revealing Ratzinger's Tactics

    For those who cannot attend Holy Mass on a daily basis, or even on Sundays because quite possibly a Traditional Latin Mass is not near, you can always send your Angel to the Holy Sacrifice on your behalf in order to join the untold choirs of Angels adoring Christ come down upon the altar. Click on the poem below that illustrates this if you want to print it out:

      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

       We invite you to find out for yourself the truth as we present a compendium portal of documents on the Faith in all aspects, past, present and to come. We guarantee what you read is in full harmony with the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church, and we guarantee you that if you read it all with a discerning heart you will be able to decipher the wheat from the chaff. You will better understand what the absolutes of our Faith are and not be fooled by modernism and ambiguities, no matter how cleverly they are couched. Remember satan is the father of half-truths. Read the fullness of the Truths and Traditions of the Roman Catholic Faith in the sections below.
