   As these pages load, we invite you to say as many Hail Mary's as necessary. We pray you will be imbued by the truths of the authentic Catholic Faith we provide here and yearn to learn more of the infrangible truths of the only Church founded by Jesus Christ.


   As gunshots ring out in compromised churches across this nation; as hate grows against all truth, as fabrications are spewed from every candidate trying to buy the presidency of this land; as foreign dictators try to impose their will on people to do it their way or else; as shoppers, stirred into a guilt frenzy by in-your-face commercials and sales deals, feed at the trough of greed in pushing and shoving their way to plunge themselves into debt in order that they will gain approval from their kids or friends on what they gave, rather than the thought of Who gave His very life; as the creches are crated and any semblance of Christ in Christmas is muted in order that an infitesimal minority of pagans and atheists can dictate to a 'democracy' in an insane politically correct world what we should say in expressing our greetings to honor the Son of God at His birth; as the counterfeit church of conciliarism continues to compromise and conceal corruption, careening out of control and covered up in every chancery coven and within the curia and higher; as all these things play out, we have a tremendous responsibility to offer expiation for all of this and more, especially our own sins that caused our Lord to suffer so. This time of Advent, as we head into Ember Week - basically the last week of Advent - we begin the Christmas Antiphons and prepare ever more practically and prayerfully for His coming. We, as His remnant Church in the face of the Great Apostasy, are called to be John the Baptists, lonely voices, if you will, crying in the wilderness for that is what today's world actually is: a wilderness. We must go against the grain and cry out, "Make straight the way of the Lord." His way is only through total adherence to the infrangible doctrines of the holy Church He founded. All others are imposters and must be exposed as such for the salvation of souls. We can't grow soft as the 'soft-season' of false peace and love engulfs our senses morning, noon and night. Like the Baptist, we must seek those moments and areas of solitude to commute with our Lord and His Blessed Mother Mary and listen to the whisper of the Holy Ghost. It won't hurt to call on Saint Joseph as well, for his track record of taking care of the Holy Family is perfect. Don't you think he'll take care of your family as well?

    And speaking of taking care, Cyndi Cain's column in "University of Virtue" this week is on two holy physicians who tended to body, mind and soul: Saints Cosmas and Damian as she portrays in Physicians: Heal the Sheep. On the very subject of those entrusted to care for the welfare of one's health, Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey files a real eye-opener as to the direction the medical profession is heading. In Dr. Paul Byrne on Brain Death Tom shares a candid interview by Randy Engel with Dr. Paul Byrne. Tom also provides a reminder through a German Bishop's sermon in 1941 that if it happened once, it can happen again. With ethics placed on the back shelf, the manner in which most of today's doctors treat patients can be called into question and often termed impersonal and cold. Cold in some circumstances, however, can be very welcoming as George Codina illustrates in sharing a little known and long-forgotten story of a miracle effected by our Lady of Victory fourteen years after her more famous intercession at the great Battle of Lepanto. We invite you to read this fascinating account entitled Miracle on Ice. We continue to bring you past sermons by Father Louis Campbell for each Sunday with his Gaudete sermon "The Orient from on High" and "Make Straight His Paths for the Fourth Sunday of Advent.

    We ask your prayers for the repose of the soul of Father Harry Marchosky, another of the dedicated old guard of the traditional movement whom God has taken from this world. He passed away on December 11 this month, shortly after reaching his 85th birthday and 55th as a priest. This convert from Judaism constantly resisted the innovations and continued to "stand firm; and hold to the traditions", never compromising. The 85-year old independant traditional priest, who was one of the founding fathers of St. Thomas Aquinas University in Santa Paula, California passed away in Veneta, Oregon. . Now it is no secret that our Lady had special plans for this chosen son who was born on the Solemnity of her feast of the Immaculate Conception. To his dying breath he honored the Mother of God, having just finished the full fifteen decades of the holy Rosary when he died. Traditional communities everywhere commemorate this crusader for truth and remember the other traditional priests who have passed away over the last few years. Though most are relatively safe in saying Fr. Marchosky, along with the other traditional priests who have fulfilled their mission on this earth, will be rewarded with eternal happiness, as Catholics we can never presume and therefore we urge you to remember his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of Christ our Lord. Amen. For a tribute, we refer you to Michael Matt's Remnant tribute Father H. Marchosky, RIP - Tu es SacÚrdos in aeternum secundum ordinem Melchisedech The ranks are growing thin, folks. We must persevere.

    Finally, This issue is expanded through next Monday to complete the Advent cycle with the next issue being the Year-End Christmas Issue. This year, on the Third Sunday of Advent, we begin the specifice Nine Day Christmas Novena counting down to Christmas and on Monday, December 17 we begin the The Greater Antiphons, counting down to the Vigil of Christmas. Each day you'll find the corresponding Proper of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with the Antiphon of the Day. As we prepare down the final stretch for His coming at Bethlehem, let us reflect and meditate on whether we would recognize Him in our midst. When we treat our neighbor with love out of love for God and pay all reverence to the True Presence of Christ Jesus, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, then we will be well prepared not only for Christmas, but recognizing Him anywhere, anytime. That is a present worth striving for.

Third and Fourth Week of Advent
  O Lord, we beg Thee, incline Thy ear to our prayers and enlighten the darkness of our minds by the grace of Thy visitation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

  O Lord, we beg Thee, incline Thy ear to our prayers and enlighten the darkness of our minds by the grace of Thy visitation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

From the Feast of Saint Andrew the Apostle to the Nativity of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ one may begin a special prayer, simply called Nine days before Christmas the "Christmas Novena Prayer" is expanded with special additional prayers each day, counting down to the Nativity of our Savior. Following these prayers, we recite the Christmas Novena Prayer "Hail and blessed be... to obtain favors if one's requests are in accordance with God's will. It is believed that whoever recites the following prayer with a pious heart 15 times a day from November 30th to December 25th, will obtain whatever is asked. This Christmas prayer carries an Imprimatur from Archbishop Michael Augustine of New York City during the Pontificate of Pope Leo XIII on February 6, 1897. You'll note there are various versions, that have been handed down from different areas within the Mystical Body of Christ. Some may have learned it one way, others another, but the key to remember is the intent. Whichever version of "Hail and blessed be..." you learned, if it's said from the heart, is pleasing to God.

   CHRISTMAS NOVENA, Day 1: O God and Savior of our souls, sweet Infant Jesus, Whom the angels and shepherds adored in the stable of Bethlehem on that holy night when Thou wert born of the Virgin Mary. We offer Thee our profound adoration and our most earnest thanksgiving for having become man for our redemption and salvation. Grant that we may apply all our powers to fulfill Thy gracious designs, that we may become perfectly renewed in heart, and inflamed with Thy holy love.

Pater Noster, Ave Maria, Gloria and the Hail and Blessed be...

The "O Antiphons" were first put into use by Holy Mother Church in the eighth and ninth centuries. Said in the Office for the day, they are derived from various titles of Christ and scripturally based short prayers said from the 17th through the 23rd of December by which the Church expresses her deep longing for the coming of the Messiah.

O WISDOM, Who came from the mouth of the Most High, reaching from end to end and ordering all things mightily and sweetly: COME, and teach us the way of prudence. Amen.

   CHRISTMAS NOVENA, Day 2: O Merciful Redeemer, Who didst vouchsafe to remain in the chaste cloister of Mary's womb, hidden and unknown, though Thou wast the Eternal Word, and the Wisdom of the Father. O Grant that we may learn from Thee to love solitude and silence, and escape the evils that are found in the tumult and distractions of the world; grant us greater purity of mind and heart; grant that we may glorify Thee, and edify others by our purity and modesty.

Pater Noster, Ave Maria, Gloria and the Hail and Blessed be...

O LORD AND RULER of the House of Israel, Who appeared to Moses in the flame of the burning bush and gave him the law on Sinai: COME, and redeem us with outstretched arms. Amen

   CHRISTMAS NOVENA, Day 3: O Infant God, Who, from the moment of Thy conception in holy Mary's womb, didst offer Thyself to Thine Eternal Father for the salvation of our souls. O vouchsafe, to give us a lively sense of the one thing necessary, so that we may labor zealously for others, and work out our own salvation in fear and trembling, yet with confidence in Thy love.

Pater Noster, Ave Maria, Gloria and the Hail and Blessed be...

O ROOT OF JESSE, that stands for an ensign of the people, before whom the kings keep silence and unto Whom the Gentiles shall make supplication: COME, to deliver us and tarry not. Amen

   CHRISTMAS NOVENA, Day 4: O Sweetest Jesus, Who didst go up to Bethlehem in the womb of Mary, to obey the command of Caesar, who had ordered all his subjects to be enrolled. O grant us grace to obey with alacrity the most arduous commands from those who hold Thy place over us.

Pater Noster, Ave Maria, Gloria and the Hail and Blessed be...

O KEY OF DAVID and Sceptre of the House of Israel, Who opens and no man shuts, Who shuts and no man opens: COME, and bring forth the captive from his prison, he who sits in darkness and in the shadow of death. Amen.

   CHRISTMAS NOVENA, Day 5: O Most Adorable Jesus, Who, upon Thine arrival at Bethlehem, wast rejected by all men. O grant us to follow Thine example in sufferings and contempt, that we may welcome Thee joyfully into our hearts, when Thou seekest an entrance there, either by holy inspirations or by Thy Divine Sacraments.

Pater Noster, Ave Maria, Gloria and the Hail and Blessed be...

O DAWN OF THE EAST, brightness of light eternal, and Sun of Justice: COME, and enlighten those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death. Amen.

   CHRISTMAS NOVENA, Day 6: O Divine Infant, Who, when excluded from Bethlehem, didst inspire Thy holy Mother to retire to a poor and wretched stable, in which obscure and humble place it was Thy will to be born, in order to confound our pride, and to teach us humility. O grant that henceforward, conforming ourselves to Thy will, we may renounce all pomp and pride, and become truly meek and humble of heart.

Pater Noster, Ave Maria, Gloria and the Hail and Blessed be...

O KING OF THE GENTILES and their desired One, the Cornerstone that makes both one: COME, and deliver man, whom You formed out of the dust of the earth. Amen.

   CHRISTMAS NOVENA, Day 7: O Divine Word, Who for the love of us, Thy poor creatures, wast pleased to be born under the most lowly roof to be wrapped in the meanest swaddling-bands, and to be laid in a vile manger, amongst beasts, and to suffer a thousand evils. O grant that we also may renounce all worldly vanities, and embrace poverty of spirit, and mortification of the flesh, so necessary for our perfection. Grant that we may be thoroughly detached from creatures, and poor in all things save in Thy love and Thy grace.

Pater Noster, Ave Maria, Gloria and the Hail and Blessed be...

O EMMANUEL, God with us, our King and Lawgiver, the expected of the nations and their Savior: COME, to save us, O Lord our God. Amen.

   CHRISTMAS NOVENA, Day 8: O Divine Savior, O King of peace, Who wast pleased to make Thine appearance amongst us when the whole world was in peace. O vouchsafe to send us Thy peace, so that all our powers being brought into subjection to Thee, Thou mayest at the approaching solemnity, be born anew into our souls.

Pater Noster, Ave Maria, Gloria and the Hail and Blessed be...

When Mary, the mother of Jesus, was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child, of the Holy Ghost. Whereupon Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing publicly to expose her, was minded to put her away privately. But while he thought on these things, behold the angel of the Lord appeared to him in his sleep, saying: Joseph, son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

   CHRISTMAS NOVENA, Day 9: O Divine Savior, O King of immortal glory, Who, in Thy great mercy, didst come into the world to redeem us and to make us holy. O grant that, denying all ungodliness and love of this world, we may live soberly in ourselves, justly toward our neighbor, and piously before Thee, that so we may be happy with Thee for all eternity.

Pater Noster, Ave Maria, Gloria and the Hail and Blessed be...

Where can be found the calibre of physicians like Saints Cosmas and Damian today? Especially in a world where much of the medical profession care nothing for the soul of man.

Unlike the shepherds who tended to their sheep on the hilly slopes of Bethlehem, so many of the human sheep today, shorn of the faith, are hurting because the modern shepherds have abandoned them for easier apostate pastures. The flock is failing, unkempt, with no direction. They grow sicker in body, mind and soul daily and there are so few physicians willing to treat both the body and soul. For her seventh lesson in the University of Virtue curriculm, Cyndi Cain highlights two brothers who were truly holy physicians - Saints Cosmas and Damian. She points out the virtuous attributes of these holy blood brothers who lived their Hypocratic Oath and, as physicicans, realized that their talents to heal were from God. They understood well through prayer and penance that they had a responsibility to God to give of their talents freely to His flocks. They did so with joy, working long hours with the utmost love and patience in treating patients whether rich or poor. It mattered not, for they saw first and foremost the soul. While they administered the Corporal Works of Mercy to all, they never neglected the Spiritual Works of Mercy. When was the last time you could say that of a doctor today? Those who have taken the Hypocratic Oath should intern on the example of Sts. Cosmas and Damian and recall the words of that Oath. And yes, remember, it was an 'Oath'; that is, a promise made to God. He remembers. The question is will those in the medical profession today, so many who have compromised their pratices, return to using the gift God endowed them with for the good of man's soul as well as his body? The sheep await to get healthy so that they may grow in grace and be well again and multiply. The flocks need urgent care as Cyndi explains in, Physicians: Heal the Sheep.


It shouldn't take a rocket scientist to realize that the 'Brain Death' deception, which the medical profession is cooperating with, is outright murder!

Dovetailing from the above article, we present something that many in the medical profession do not want you to know. Among the plethora of articles Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey has provided, he wanted to emphasize an interview with the noted Dr. Paul A. Byrne conducted by the director of The Michael Fund and author of the blockbuster expose book Rite of Sodomy, Randy Engel on organ transplants and brain death and the government's increased regulation of organ donation and transplants and how insurance companies cooperate with the charade that, as Tom points out in including a poignant sermon by the German Bishop Clemens August Count von Galen in 1941 in alerting the populace to the genetic engineering and elimination of 'useless' lives by the Third Reich. He vociferiously protested, "If the principle that man is entitled to kill his unproductive fellow-man is established and applied, then woe betide all of us when we become aged and infirm! If it is legitimate to kill unproductive members of the community, woe betide the disabled who have sacrificed their health or their limbs in the productive process! If unproductive men and women can be disposed of by violent means, woe betide our brave soldiers who return home with major disabilities as cripples, as invalids! If it is once admitted that men have the right to kill 'unproductive' fellow-men 'even though it is at present applied only to poor and defenceless mentally ill patients' then the way is open for the murder of all unproductive men and women: the incurably ill, the handicapped who are unable to work, those disabled in industry or war. The way is open, indeed, for the murder of all of us when we become old and infirm and therefore unproductive. Then it will require only a secret order to be issued that the procedure which has been tried and tested with the mentally ill should be extended to other 'unproductive' persons, that it should also be applied to those suffering from incurable tuberculosis, the aged and infirm, persons disabled in industry, soldiers with disabling injuries!" Tom points out that, indeed, we have not learned from history and America is fast becoming another dangerous fascist nation at the expense of lives, not to mention souls. Tom shares the facts in The Dr. Paul Byrne on Brain Death

    Also, for a dynamic presentation by Dr. Byrne and how the Pro-Life movement needs to be aware of the verbal and social engineering by the manipulators undermining the sanctity of life, see the half-hour show Face of Pro-Life"

How our Lady of Victory made popsicles out of Protestant plans fourteen years after Lepanto

George Codina shares a little known true story of a battle that, had it not gone well, could very well have changed the face of Europe. He points out that you most likely won't hear about this event in revisionist history annals, but it is something every Catholic should know and realize that when all else fails, praying for a miracle can't hurt. As trite as that may sound to some, true believers understand how true that can be. Throughout the history of salvation it has occurred from the time of the Old Testament to the time our Lord and Savior walked the earth to the testament of His deity following His Ascension, His Church has a treasure of miracles that did indeed change the course of history. We know of the victories at Lepanto and Viena, but few know of the miracle on ice. No, we are not talking of the USA Olympic Hockey victory over the Soviets, but the miracle our Lady effected through the grace of God in hearing the prayers of her children trapped on the Isle of Bomel in 1585. George relays the details in his article, Miracle on Ice


The Joy and Reality of the Third and Fourth Sundays of Advent bring into focus all so clearly that there is only one way to attain salvation.

We reach back two years to bring you Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Third Sunday of Advent - Gaudete Sunday. In it he exhorts us to "rejoice" for the conciliarists will not have their way. God will not allow it. He will deliver His faithful ones from the darkness that envelops the earth, especially in these times when Modern Rome has sold out the Faith Christ established on the Rock of Peter - Eternal Rome. The conciliar popes have denied the Dogma of salvation by caving to the sin of placating man so as not to offend him while greatly and grievously offending God. Woe to them who would deceive the children of God, woe to them who would shroud them in darkness. Father points out that while the conciliarists can and do express whatever 'opinion' is popular with the people for world peace on man's terms, true Catholics realize we have all the answers with the light of Divine Revelation through Sacred Scripture which is infrangible truth and because of that we can readily recognize half-truths and compromises and deviation from the Faith for what it is: apostasy! We know what "the Truth, the Way and the Life" has set in stone and passed down through His Holy Church by guiding us through the darkness by that Light from the East as Father explains in his sermon. "The Orient from on High"
In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Fourth Sunday of Advent,which we bring you from three years ago, he reminds us of what Holy Mother Church always taught on the purpose for Advent: Repentance and Penance in order to purify us to welcome the Messias. It is through this Church - the Mystical Bride of Christ - the New Jerusalem - which Christ entrusted His authority and only through Her. For centuries the liturgical calendar reflected the necessary lessons in a one-year cycle that hit on all the points the faithful needed for salvation. Of course, as Father Campbell notes in discerning the thinking of the conciliarists, that was before the enlightenment of this modern age when it is implicitly posited that one religion is as good as the next. Is there any wonder that God will not allow the canonization process of Pope Pius XII to be besmirched by the conciliarist circus when the very advocate, appointed by John Paul II for Papa Pacelli's cause, is spouting heresy? That would be Fr. Peter Gumpel who summises that the thrice-defined dogma Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus is no longer "in vogue." Father Louis has some news for these pompous pharisees; actually it comes from Christ Himself in Luke 13: 3 and there is no ambiguity or time frame involved. It is timeless and absolute: "Unless you repent, you will perish in the same manner." Father explains as he shares the sure words of Dom Prosper Gueranger in his sermon "Make Straight His Paths"



The Saintly Father of the Eldest Daughter of the Church

All can see the demise of the Faith throughout the world, but nowhere is it so devastating than in the land where Catholicism took such a solid stronghold well over a millennium and a half ago: France. Why? That answer is simple. Modern man has abandoned the virtues. Cyndi Cain urges all to go back to basics: Prayer. No one gets to Heaven without it. So also if we forsake penance and self-denial. In the same mold of St. John the Baptist, who Christ extolls in the Gospel for the Second Sunday of Advent, God rose up the holy, humble Saint Remigius some four centuries later for a special mission: to be the 'Apostle of the Franks' in being the catalyst for establishing the eldest daughter of the Church through the baptism of King Clovis, and the beginning of a long, illustrious line of French saints who have been so instrumental in the growth of the holy Faith that today is so threatened by Modernism, Islamism and lukewarmness. We pray God will rise up another St. Remigius to wake the echoes of the French and every other nation of this world that victory can only be achieved through virtue! Virtue begins with living a prayerful life. Cyndi explains in her essay, Prayer, Patience and Perseverance are the Prerogatives for Planting the Faith


In the Darkness, There is A Light of Hope

We reach back three years to Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Second Sunday of Advent, for, in this time of the Great Apostasy, he points out the encouragement of the Apostle Paul's words in today's Epistle "that through patience and the comfort of the Scriptures, we might have hope." In these times when all might seem hopeless in the face of the devastation done to holy Mother Church from those who have infiltrated at every level and sought to besmirch the Bride of Christ, Father shows that their fruits will be in vain for Christ has promised His faithful that the wait, the suffering is worth it. Father provides the comfort of the Apostle John's words from the Apocalypse that best answers the why this has occurred at this time in history and why we must have hope. God has given us a glimpse of what awaits us by giving us the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. It is through this propitiatory offering of Christ to the Father by the priest on our behalf that we are closest to experiencing what Heaven truly is as Father illustrates in his sermon "In Him shall the Gentiles Hope"


The Ultimate Gift of Love for the King from the King.

No Present is greater than the lasting Presence of Christ the King, truly present on the holy Altar. Scott Montgomery weighs in with a short reflection on the essence of Christ's Kingship and its relation to His Birth. Just as only a few - such as the Holy Family, the shepherds of Bethlehem and the three Magi - recognized the King of kings two thousand years ago, so also today so few are cogniscent that He is in our midst, especially in the ultimate gift of Love He left us: Himself present in the Most Blessed Sacrament, confected in the representation of the ultimate Sacrifice of the Cross: the Immemorial Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the Mother tongue of the Church Christ founded. Then, as now, many are called, but few chosen to acknowledge Him as Christ the King to Whom we owe all obedience to His divine Will and to the Deposit of Faith He established. Scott elucidates on Mary's pivotal role as well in his timely article, Christmas and the Kingship of Christ

    Saints never say "Bah, humbug!"

    As we enter the Season of Advent in the Church's liturgical year, everywhere else the purpose of this season is lost on the masses who are constantly reminded of things that make men merry and greedier, but not happy. What the vast majority have failed to focus on are the four last reminders for salvation of their soul. Cyndi Cain tries to put this season of giving in proper perspective. While many attribute St. Nicholas as the saint of gifts, she illustrates how St. Laurence Justinian was known for his generosity. Many questioned his sanity in giving away so much, but he knew God would provide for any of his needs. Too often our wants get in the way of our needs. What we really need is to remember the Four Last Things: Death, Judgment, Heaven and Hell. By keeping these crucial realities always in mind, we, too, will be able to then begin to emulate the holy Patriarch of Venice in our generosity and holiness. Our worries will fall away for we have trust in the Lord that He will provide for our needs in all things pleasing to Him. Cyndi shares in her essay,Being constantly aware of the Four Last Things can ease the burden


    To the Modernists Idols are never idle

    For the First Sunday of Advent we bring you Father Louis Campbell's sermon from two years ago, in which he clearly shows how man-made religions have forsaken what God commanded and what Christ established with His only One, True Church. Father points out the meaning of Advent and the why of it - in perfect union and preparation for the coming of the Messiah Who would establish the New Covenant. Today, just as in the time of Moses, men have decided they know better and have carved idols, worshipping what they wanted, not what God demanded. From the First Commandment alone we can see how the conciliarists have gravely violated this precept by adding to the graven image of the golden calf for they have not only acknowledged false religions, but encouraged them as well. Father documents this travesty. He also shows the clear, concise words of the holy Pope St. Pius X in his masterful encyclical Pascendi Domenici gregis that warned of how one could tell if one is a modernist or not. Sadly, we can see today His Holiness' very omens being carried out to extremes for idols are being carved out of every ambiguity and relativism postured by the church of Vatican II (the counterfeit church of conciliarism) where they find justification for good being evil and vice being considered virtuous by those very offenders of God's Laws. Father explains in his sermon "You shall not carve idols"


    Traditional Catholicism's Answer to Charles Kuralt's "On The Road"

    You've no doubt heard the song, "I've been everywhere, man, I've been everywhere." Well that man could very well be Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey, Traditional Catholicism's answer to the late Charles Kuralt. If you think you've got it rough, take a gander at what he and his family have encountered over this past year. In the much anticipated follow-up installments to his now famous "It's Still Better This Than Purgatory (or Worse)", he treats the reader with episodes five and six. It provides food for thought such as the next time traffic gets harrowing or you get a flat tire, it's really nothing when you think of it if you offer all to the Most Sacred and Immaculate Hearts in reparation for one's own sins and those of others. Few encounter sagas like Tom illustrates unless the devil is furious with them and then you can expect the kind of obstacles Tom and his family experience almost daily. It's all part of the 'being Catholic' scenario in which most of us fail miserably. We can take lessons from the mishaps and modern-day 'Perils of Pauline' the Droleskeys face on a regular basis and how they handle it. Few are better at making lemonade when life gives lemons than the master mixer as he so eloquently narrates his journeys this year in illustrating the Catholic conscience every one of us should adopt if we are truly serious about living our Faith. Tom elaborates in It's Still Better This Than Purgatory (or Worse), Part 5 and It's Still Better This Than Purgatory (or Worse), Part 6


    Two Bishops who nourished the faith as Doctors of the Church in Italy are celebrated this week.

    The first Doctor of the Church in the liturgical year to be honored is Saint Peter Chrysologus who was born at the turn of the 5th Century in Italy and, like his predecessor colleagues in the great academy of Doctors, strove with his every breath and magnificent oratory skills to uphold and preserve the Sacred fidei depositum. He had no fear in taking on the deceiving Monophysite heresy that, in the aftermath of the Arian heresy, threatened to wrent the Church asunder once more, but he confronted Eutyches himself and won the day. So great was St. Peter Chrysologus' eloquence in conveying the Faith in all its beauty and simplicity that he is remembered, even though few of his sermons have survived the annals of history, as Doctor of Homilies
    The Doctor of the Church whose feast immediately precedes the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception is the wise and holy Saint Ambrose, who was so pivotal in converting and nurturing his prize pupil Saint Augustine, was the first to migrate from the north, the Rhineland area of Trier and settled in Milan, Italy where he cast away a lucrative career as a lawyer and politician, and, seeking baptism as a convert himself, was unanimously elected by the people as the bishop. He refused, feeling not worthy, but when the emperor insisted he accepted. On December 3, 374 after being baptized and ordained, he was consecrated the Bishop of Milan. to accept the people's acclaim as their Bishop. He ruled in holiness and justice and, together with his protege from Hippo, fought vigorously against the Arian heresy towards the end of the fourth century. This Bishop, this "Converter of Saints" who we feature as the seventh on the chronological list is Saint AmbroseConverter of Saints


    The counterfeit church of conciLIARism merely lays out the red carpet for the Antichrist in continuing to ignore the sensus Catholicus by dialoguing and compromising with the enemies of Christ. In the Gospel of Matthew for the final Sunday after Pentecost, our Lord clearly tells us of these times. Why are so many blinded to these signs?

    Harking back two years ago, we bring you Father Louis Campbell's excellent sermon for the Last Sunday After Pentecost in which he cited the evident warnings in Sacred Scripture of the signs of the Antichrist. He documents very clearly how the counterfeit church of conciLIARism is paving the way for this with the blasphemy and insanity of those who do know better, who have so deceived even the elect. To promulgate acceptance of human respect and placate man through false ecumenism at the expense of losing all scope of the supernatural and respect for all Holy Mother Church has always held as key for true prayer and graces, is to betray Christ and His Mystical Bride. Yet the usurpers continue unfettered, spreading the heresy that Jews no longer need to convert for their Messiah is yet to come. Meanwhile countless Jews, Catholics and other non-Catholics are deprived of the salvific truths that Christ has promised and the Apostles have verified in Divine Revelation for no one can attain Heaven without belief in Jesus Christ the only-begotten Son of the Father and the Holy Ghost, Whom Our Lord left to guide what He established on the Rock of Peter. Jesus foretold of the very times we live in for what was prophesied in Daniel 11: 31 and in today's Gospel of Matthew 24: 15, indeed, has come out about with the abominable New Order sacrilegious Novus Ordo that has eclipsed, for the most part, the true and propitiatory Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Can the Antichrist be far behind? Father explains in his sermon Parleying with the Dark


    They are the devil's helpers, the shills of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. They come in all shapes and sizes. They are clever and watchful. They know the code and they know who to recruit and who to exclude. They are the very "laity" who have lain low the holy Faith.

    Griff Ruby provides a sobering first hand experience of just how the ecumaniacal heresies were able to spread so quickly and continue to conflagrate souls with an agenda that is best dubbed 'diabolic disorientation.' Griff illustrates how it only takes a few to wreak havoc as fifth columnists within the ranks, planting ideas that are not your ideas or ideals but theirs. It is the modus operandi of the totalitarian mindset employed so insidiously in both countries and churches. Like the slippery serpent of Genesis, the shills slither in and coil themselves around the unsuspecting ones, squeezing their prey into buying the rot they know you don't want by twisting the truths so cleverly. It is how the aberrations of Vatican II took hold with few being the wiser. It is truly a factory far worse than the sweat shops of the Far East for it affects souls and the venom injected by the shillsters, posing as partners, paralyzes parishioners into following the path to perdition. Griff explains in his article, The Novus Ordo Shill Factory


    Has anyone ever realized why Mary has been seen weeping by visionaries? Could it be because they have strayed so far from her divine Son? Could it also be that she cries because so many souls are heading to perdition?

    On the feast of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, Cyndi Cain reaches ahead sixteen years to 1846 to share the significance of the apparition of Our Lady of LaSalette. The Blessed Mother's Church-approved message has been, for the most part, hidden and dismissed by operatives of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. Cyndi points out how, from early in the 19th Century, Heaven provided all the help necessary to stave off the Great Apostasy and still we didn't listen. From the Miraculous Medal to our Lady's copious tears to the Sun spinning it would seem man has been deaf and dumb to all Heaven has warned. Now we face exactly what our laxity has asked for: Rome has lost the faith and become the seat of the antichrist. Will we continue in the perilous path or turn back to God before it is too late? Have we not learned from the mistakes of the Jews of the Old Testament, even when we have the powerful aid of God's Own Mother to guide us? Our Lady of Perpetual Help is perpetually trying to help. The problem lies with those she's seeking to protect and warn. Cyndi shares why, at LaSalette, Our Lady Wept for a Reason


    Two days in the last week of November are dedicated to a miracle Heaven has wanted to bestow on those who believe and persevere. It seems the miracle will be convincing souls of the necessity of the Miraculous Medal.

    To commemorate two succeeding feasts during the last week of November, we present a short piece on our Lady's intent at Rue du Bac in Paris back in 1830 when she appeared to the pure soul St. Catherine Laboure 177 years ago. We say pure because God said so by preserving her body incorrupt to this day. The Blessed Mother has had a most urgent message for her children for over 177 years and still we don't take it seriously enough even when Heaven has given us the Rosary, the Scapular and, to St. Catherine, the Miraculous Medal, also called the Medal of the Immaculate Conception since engraved on the front are the same she imparted to St. Bernadette Soubirous at Lourdes in 1858: "O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee." It would seem, this beautiful short prayer was paramount in the nineteenth century, but it is ever more paramount today when mankind no longer believes in miracles, thinking he doesn't even need God. Oh, how far man has sunk and yet there's hope thanks to the promises to those who worthily whear the Miraculous Medal. We explain in The Message and Meaning of Rue du Bac


    Gobble! Gobble! is not the sound of a turkey crowing, but rather what has happened to truth as the revisionists, in an effort to justify the rebellion of their ancestors against the True Faith, have sought every canard to cast at the only True Church Christ established for all time. As the devil is wont to do, he provides plenty of stuffing for souls to digest, twisting wishbones in the decaying body of so many sects who remain in denial.

    Though she had not planned on writing anything until next Monday, Cyndi Cain, after receiving a letter from a Protestant friend enamored with Oliver Cromwell and the Pilgrims, was inspired to write a lesson on how so many have been duped into believing yet another lie from the evil one. Thus we post it here to share with your Protestant and neo-Catholic friends if they will have the fortitude to discuss it with you after dinner when familes and relatives gather around the table to partake in a sumptious banquet of traditional tastes with all the trimmings. She points out that we should take time to reflect on how we've been manipulated not only to schedule dinner around football games and early Christmas shopping, but how we've been duped into believing the reasons why we should be thankful and missing the real point, the essential reason why we should be thankful from the bottom of our hearts and souls. It has nothing to do with the early pilgrims, but rather one Pilgrim Who traversed the Holy Land nearly 2000 years ago preaching one Truth and establishing one Church to carry on all He had bestowed, including Himself in the everlasting Manna from Heaven: the Holy Eucharist in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. She explains in There is Only One Thanksgiving and it has Nothing to do with Turkey


    Clydesdales and Dalmatians have passed into oblivion, giving way to faster, more expensive and deadlier things in much the same manner old fashioned values of good sportsmanship and playing for the love of the game have. Today amorality has choked out the very source of survival: the young fans - the paying customers of tomorrow - whose interests have been greatly polluted by the poisonous promotions they are exposed to at the ballpark or on telecasts of the games, and let down by the very players they sought to admire: the cheat-at-all-costs mega-million dollar heroes who have forsaken their responsibility to be role models and uphold the honor of what once was America's great Pastime. No more! Thanks to Barry Bonds and a plethora of other selfish athletes, along with a clueless commissioner, MLB has whiffed big time!

    Few realize Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey in another life was the always proper, fun-loving, scene-stealing "Lone Ranger" at Shea Stadium for many years and chronicles this in his engaging book There is No Cure for this Condition. Few have as great a grasp on the grand old game as Tom does and he takes a break this Thanksgiving to explain why baseball has fallen so far from grace. As you read you can see the parallels of what has happened in baseball to the very same malaise that has affected both society and faith. It's no news that Barry Bonds has been taking steroids for it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the evidence. Maybe that is where the company distributing giant replicas of athletic stars got its name: Fathead. Tom digs further beneath Bond's gargantuan hat size to the real culprits: the baseball owners and their own hand-chosen insipid commissioner Bud Selig who refused to confront the situation until forced to do so. Sound familiar? It should for no conciliar bishop would have acted one iota had not the press and courts forced their hand. Just as the mad miters were perfectly happy in their comfort zone at the expense of countless souls, so also the baseball establishment was only too obliged to look the other way as the money poured in and older cathedrals of the grand old game were demolished to make way for new stadiums for one simple reason: greed! Tradition means nothing to the modernist whether they be cleric or commissioner. Tom explains in his change of pace column, This Bud's Not for You


    A Rose is a rose, is a rose unless it embodies the fullness of grace exhibited by the most beautiful Rose, St. Rose of Lima whom God raised up following the Council of Trent to guide us in these times. Yes, today we must look to St. Rose when the infallible tenets of Trent are so trashed by the robber baron weeds - pestilential prelates - who have become a blight upon God's garden of graces by preying on the buds of belief in squeezing dry the vital moisture of virtue, leaving a desolate desert of fruitless tangled thorns.

    Following her introductory lesson, Cyndi Cain begins a series of lessons in the course Sanctity 101 guided by the everlasting Dean of the University of Virtue - the Holy Ghost and His unparalleled faculty led by the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity - our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, His Most Blessed Mother, the Saints, Fathers, Doctors and inspired Roman Pontiffs. She commences with a more recent saint, in fact the first canonized saint of the New World: Saint Rose of Lima, whose legacy lives on in the virtues she practiced. Think of a particular virtue, more than likely St. Rose of Lima lived it to perfection. Humility, obedience, modesty, you name it, there aren't enough petals on a rose to count how many virtues St. Rose exhibited throughout her relatively brief thirty-one years on this temporal turf. Rose embodies the perseverance of St. Monica and the sufferings of the most willing victim soul and she personified our Lady in her fiat as obedient daughter, virtuous wife, compassionate mother and accepting widow, and willingly sent her own flesh and blood back to the Father. In the example of St. Rose we are presented with a vivid illustration of the many attributes of God. Cyndi commences with lesson one in revealing the beauty of this rose and the everlasting edification exuding a heavenly fragrance for all of us to strive to emulate. A Rose whose petals of purity forever bloom with abundant graces


    By trusting in The Living Flame of Love as his Spiritual Canticle throughout his life, St. John of the Cross passed through the Dark Night of the Soul into the everlasting Light.

    This coming Saturday we celebrate the Feast of the holy Doctor of the Church Saint John of the Cross. Born in Spain, this wise and holy man had obstacle after obstacle placed in his path throughout his life. Despite the roadblocks, from the earliest possible drowning accident he was protected - under the mantle of the Blessed Mother and Saint Joseph. He longed for perfection, desiring to please only our Lord, so much so that he accepted pain and suffering willfully, even to being demeaned and ridiculed, called an apostate and worse. Through all of this he still kept the Faith when all about him wanted to take it away. He was encouraged by a saintly pupil whom he aided greatly in reform of the Carmelites - St. Teresa of Avila. God confirmed to all his persecutors that this holy priest was right and deserved the aura of sanctity at his death, which this saint had foretold the exact year, month, day and hour. He wrote a book that boosts the confidence of so many who have those times of doubt about their Faith. He showed where faith is not about feelings, but about perseverance during those dark nights of the soul. Saint John of the Cross was the dauntless Apostle of Perseverance.


    Just when you think it can't get any loonier, the VulgArians go a step further in clearly identifying that by their actions and words there is no way they are Catholic! Thus we repeat our dire warning to every good Catholic: Flee, Get out of the counterfeit church of conciliarism while you can!

    Over the last week Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey has written several articles that do indeed show the insidious insanity of the architects who insisted and continue to spin making man in his own image. From the time of Christ up through the early 1500's man's image was mostly reflected by his obedience to God, finding favor in the garment of grace gained through the divinely ordained sacraments instituted by Christ. But with the Augustinian Monk Martin Luther manifesting Lucifer's most blatant rebellious cry: "Non serviam" a portal was given to the devil to twist and tease, to deceive and denude countless souls of grace and, ergo, salvation. That is why we have created a graphic titled "From Luther to lunacy..." for that indeed is what the world has become: an international insane asylum with nearly 34,000 sects claiming they have the truth where, in truth, our Lord established only One Church and those not on that ark cannot be saved, just as those, who were not with Noah as the floods came, perished. Despite this fact of faith, the engineers of promulgating the heresies of Modernism, Americanism, Sillonism, and Hegelianism - to name only a few of the most prevalent errors - have continued their madness. Tom's latest even deals with the blatant concession of an entire millennium in order to placate the schismatic Orthodox church, never mind their denial of dogmatic truth. To combat these compromisers we have, of course, the infrangible Deposit of Faith and the infallible, perennial Magisterium of the Church. There are few today who are more adept at delineating the causes and effects and exposing the guilty culprits on their own petards, indicted by holy writ, the saints, and the inspired Papal Decrees of reliable true Roman Pontiffs. Tom is also without peer in gleaning the political landscape from a purely Roman Catholic perspective. His columns are not only worthy of your putting a reading priority on, but also helping him financially is greatly encouraged since he, like St. John the Baptist, tells it like it is. No whitewashing or softsoaping the necessities of living our faith. Tom truly is one of the lone voices crying in the wilderness to make ready the path of the Lord.


    Our quest is never in vain if we follow the direction God's weather vane has revealed in order for us to tap into the one True Faith that should flow through our veins. If we do, we'll have the assurance that our hearts will be peaceful and calm when we're laid to our rest.

    As promised, editor Michael Cain provides a brief explanation of the travels and travails experienced over the last month or so as he equates it to the journey of a quest we are all on. He likens it to the fact that, with the True Church in eclipse - thanks to the Great Apostasy wrought by the counterfeit church of conciliarism - and infighting and petty bickering only intensifying among those loyal to the Truths and Traditions of holy Mother Church, Traditional Catholics are forever chasing windmills that many say no longer exist. Indeed for many it remains only in their memories. But memories live on in the traditions lost but never forgotten. Whether we are idealistic Don Quixotes or obedient Sancho Pansas we can never forget what our mission is and why we must be willing to fight the unbeatable foe and bear with unbearable sorrow to right the unrightable wrong and to love pure and chaste from afar, no matter how hopeless, no matter how far it will take us even if it means marching into hell for a heavenly cause. That is the Catholic crusade that needs to be clarioned in reparation and repair of all that's gone horribly wrong over the past century. Those windmills will only irrigate souls if the grace is flowing, powered by the Rosary and motivated through the gentle breeze of the Holy Ghost. He explains in his commentary God deems it possible!


    With the world becoming more sinister by the day, reflected in the styles and fashions and mindsets of so many that so hideously illustrate how vice is squeezing out good, it is high time to revive the virtues, to bring back the example of saints and a return to all that is right and just.

    With the above in mind, Cyndi Cain has been inspired to begin a new series in which she will take the reader on a refresher course, if you will, guided by a par excellence faculty that can be matched nowhere in the world for the teachers are our Lord, His Blessed Mother, the Saints, Doctors and Fathers of the Church. It is, in essence, the University of Virtue. There is no better month than November to debut this series and we hope you will gain in grace and understanding from the words put forth. Thus, as the humble instrument Cyndi introduces this series in piecing together the tableau laid out so perfectly by God and woven with the golden thread of the Holy Ghost's infinite tapestry, by which the Mystical Body of Christ is united. It is the magnificent divine Opus leading us to our Heavenly Home. This double thread of Charity and Suffering, which the Sanctifier employs, cannot be separated, for it embodies Christ's Own command: "If anyone loves Me, let him take up his cross daily and follow Me." It begins with piety, for all reverence is due the Lord. She explains in her introductory column Return to Piety Place


    Saint Albert the Great was a product of the holy Dominican fruit planted by St. Dominic to blossom for holy Mother Church in convincing and converting souls for Christ.

    Thursday is the feast of a man the Church rightfully labels Magnus: Saint Albert the Great. He was a man who the devil definitely did not want to become a priest, let alone a Dominican. He was the only saint of the Church called "Great" who was not a Sovereign Pontiff. He was part and parcel of the fruits of the century of saints in the thirteenth century and played an integral role in the 14th Ecumenical Council. Albert staunchly defended his pupil once called "the dumb ox" against all kinds of calumny and subterfuge, and always in charity. Little did he or anyone else at the time realize how smart St. Thomas Aquinas truly was. Through the guidiance of the Holy Ghost and spurred by a deep love for Christ and His Church, St. Albert continued right up to his death with teaching the Faith even though he suffered in his later years from Alzheimer's well before it was even called that. This great saint was truly Albertus Magnus: Tutor to the Angelic Doctor.


    We can only hope the bad weeds will soon be uprooted and cast into the everlasting fire, but hopefully those presently looking to those poisonous plants for sustenance will discover their error before they are hopelessly afflicted with the devil's disease.

    In our commitment to keep Father Louis Campbell's sermons pertinent, we present his sermon from 2005 for the Twenty-Fifth Sunday After Pentecost. In it he cites Christ's words in today's Gospel, taken from the Fifth Sunday After Epiphany, on how an enemy has stolen into the wheat fields of souls and sowed the cockle of dissent, novelty and revolution. Just as Our Lord warned, so also it has happened within His holy Church over the last century. Father documents this in showing how the bad seeds are choking out so much of the good wheat which, because of all the confusion, sways in the wind -whichever way it blows - growing weaker as the weeds smother the good seed. This very thing is illustrated in the conciliar church - the bad seed - which seeks to overpower and snuff out the good seed - the One, Holy, Apostolic and Catholic Church founded by Christ. How they have done it is so clever that no man could be totally responsible for such subterfuge. There had to be a master plan from the father of lies - the devil himself - who has been the instigator of stealing in and, with the help of so many gardeners who have already sold their souls for the temporal Masonic goals, have planted the destructive, eternal life-denying cockle. Through vigilance to the sacraments and the Holy Rosary, and by heeding the Apostle Paul's words in today's epistle, we can look forward to the harvest in being assured we will not become victims of The Seeds of Revolution


    If we do not learn from the mistakes of the children of Abraham, we're bound to repeat them. We have to ask if God will be merciful to us if we persist in our narrowmindedness.

    Appropriately, on the historical feast of the Holy Relics, Griff Ruby leads off Return Week of The Daily Catholic with an interesting perspective that, no doubt, few Traditional Catholics have ever thought about. We can take many lessons from the Old Testament and God's purpose for it. Likewise we can learn from the fallout of those who rejected the promised Messias - "the Word made flesh" - in the New Covenant. Rather than antipathy toward our Jewish brothers in Christ, we should be empathetic toward our confused brethren of the Old Covenant, for the Orthodox Jew refuses to compromise; so do most Traditional Catholics. The Orthodox Jew follows the letter of the divine Law; so do most Traditional Catholics in realizing the fulfillment in our Lord's ultimate Sacrifice, re-enacted sacramentally in the propitiatory Sacrifice of the Mass; the only sacrifice pleasing to the Father. The Orthodox Jew longs for the time when they will have a Temple again; many Traditional Catholics long for the time when we will have a true Pope again. In fact, that very issue should unite Catholics, not divide. And yet, the temple of torment tears at His remnant because we fail to realize how history repeats itself and, in that, we're no different than the Jews. In fact, we can learn from them in their effort to bond as family. If we do not unite, we are destined to make the same mistakes and only weaken our ranks. The question is: Will we ever learn? That is what Griff tweaks our consciences with in his gentle, but firm way of prodding Traditional Catholics to live our Faith to the fullest with his essay, New Rites for Old


    A groundswell is building after the first week of Bella's phenomenal debut. Despite the masking of the film's content by the liberal media, the wonderful pro-life message is getting across. Isn't it Bellalicious?

    Gabriel Garnica returns after a few months away with a piece on the phenomenal film Bella and why it is taking America by storm. The grass roots families are fed up with the garbage they've been forcefed and the people are responding by putting their money where their heart is by turning out in droves to see this refreshing love story that brings a powerful pro-life message to all. The weapon in this war against the pro-abortion advocates is love. Just this past week Bella has been the buzz with the possibility of Academy Awards for this critically acclaimed film that is so wonderfully anchored in the sanctity of life. Maybe that's why its viewership is gaining life as each day passes. All those Rosaries at the abortuaries are paying off for God has chosen to send a simple film to teach the majority what's right in hopefully changing hardened hearts from the grave error of abortion to holding life as precious. Heaven knows we can't depend on the moral compass of the counterfeit church of conciliarism in this war against infanticide. No, the New Order Church is out of touch in the same manner liberal wags are out of touch with the pulse of Bella and its effect on the public. Gabriel explains in his column, The Bellum that Bella wages against the Merchants of Death


    Sir Walter Scott is credited with the words, but Ratzinger has cleverly crafted them into an art: "What a web we do weave, when first we practice to deceive." With every day more are being caught in his Motu flytrap.





    While we've been on hiatus, Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey has been on duty, providing all the proof necessary to expose the sinuous trap being set by the "spider 'pope'" - albeit a false one - with his viscous and, yes, viscious snare that he has spun for duped Catholics, Traditional ones at that. Yet, several supposedly Traditional organizations have been suckered into the sticky mess Ratzinger and his robber barons have spun to "deceive (if it were possible [and, sadly as we can see, it is!] even the elect" (St.Matthew 24: 24). Tragically, this includes one certain long-standing print publication that was once regarded so highly as a trusted voice. No more! Suckered by the Motu trap, that publication has recently plummeted tremendously in credibility, for it has contradicted itself many times over in trying to absolve the Modernist BeneRatz. If you haven't read any of Tom's twelve articles, by all means you owe it to yourself and your own salvation to do so or you will become just another "fly in the ointment" of the firmanent of Gehenna. These are serious times and no amount of apologetics or apologies for the counterfeit church of conciliarism can justify the souls being harmed by the lukewarmness of those mired in the Fellay filigree that is playing right into the hands...erh,make that "the 'tarsus'" (and we're not speaking of Tarsus in apostolic times!) of the Apostate Arachnid of 'subsistence' lore. Sir Walter Scott wrote "What a web we do weave, when first we practice to deceive." Ratzinger's had lots of practice as Tom explains in his essays below the graphic to the left; a graphic that illustrates the situation only too well.

    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:

  • Monsignor Charles Jackson  Pastor of St. Rita of Cascia's independant Traditional Catholic chapel fell and broke his back, and is recovering from paralysis.

  • Mrs. Anne McMahon  Fr. Denis McMahon's mother who is in ICU in Cincinnati.

  • Cyndi Cain  Wife of the editor. She is recovering from two major intestinal surgeries at Holy Family Hospital in Spokane.

  • Dolores Cyr  She is recovering from heart surgery.

  • Patrick Henry Omlor  This Tower of Trent inductee and pioneer of the Traditional Catholic Movement is recovering from emergency surgery.

  • Walter Pivarunas   He is the father of Bishop Mark Pivarunas, CMRI and is recovering from surgery.

  • Mrs. Frances Cordova   She is the mother of Father Ephrem Cordova, CMRI

    It is heartening to know that all are of the true Faith and have received Extreme Unction. Please keep these suffering souls in your prayers. We are grateful to Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey and The Fathers at the TRADITIO Network for keeping us informed.

  • Bill Dineen   A traditional Catholic parishioner from Mount Saint Michael's who passed away on All Souls Day.

  • Bernice Stypa  A tireless soul who died just before reaching 91 and who dedicated her life to spreading the true Faith and devotion to our Lady and the Fatima Message.

  • Those killed in Iraq, Afghanistan and the Mid East
      over a senseless war that has forgotten and rejected Jesus Christ, King of all men.

  • All those slaughtered in the womb   mercilessly murdered where it should be the safest refuge possible.

    May all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

    PAPAL PROOF OF WHAT THE CHURCH TRULY TEACHES
      For those who truly want to delve deeper into what the Faith teaches and what past Sovereign Pontiffs have decreed, we recommend for your vital reading to better KNOW THE FAITH in order to KEEP THE FAITH, pertinent Papal decrees which put to the lie what is being promulgated today by the Vatican II church. We strongly encourage you to read these to understand how today the modern church is in Apostasy when compared to what had always been taught by Holy Mother Church and enforced and warned as most grievous by previous Pontiffs as you'll see in CREDO & CULTURE

    When it comes to all these ungodly laws being passed by liberal judges because of the lobbying and intimidation of a small minority out to do away with the natural and supernatural order, it is wise to keep in mind the following:

    "Unjust laws are, properly speaking, NO LAWS!"
    His Eminence Saint Robert Cardinal Bellarmine, Doctor of the Church


       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.
