Saturday is the Double Feast of The Seraphic Doctor, Saint Bonaventure, and due to a transformer being down in our neighborhood by "dry lightning" we lost power for over 15 hours and were not able to put this on until midday on Saturday. During the blackout what better thing to do than pray, especially since it happened just before leaving for the Fatima Rosary Procession downtown on the 13th of the month. Unable to because of the power outage, while we were praying the Sorrowful Mysteries, this editor's rosary broke in two places at the same time! Satan is indeed furious and we need today men of the caliber of St. Bonaventure who was a man full of "good fortune" from his earliest years. Humility was his virtue; his role model was St. Francis of Asissi, the holy founder who named him. He followed this man, continuing the ideals of the Franciscans, guiding them during turbulent times when growing pains created problems in the ranks and with various ecclesial authorities opposed to the Friars Minor. This Universal Doctor was one of the first saintly Cardinals of the Church. He was close friends with "The Angelic Doctor" St. Thomas Aquinas and the saintly king of France King Louis IX. He was the architect of the 2nd Council of Lyons and, fittingly, was called home by God immediately following completion of the Council. His work done on earth but continued through his writings and example; so much so that Saint Bonaventure is known as The Seraphic Doctor.
With a detailed analysis of the CDF's spin on "subsists in" coming in next Tuesday's issue by Griff Ruby (who has so expertly exposed Lumen Gentium for the heretical document it's always been, particularly in his masterful essay Down the Yellow Brick Road to Apostasy: The Lumen Gentium Syndrome), we bring you first Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey's response to the idiocy of William Levada's attempt of a recent "clarification" issued by the counterfeit conciliarists concerning the "proper" interpretation of Lumen Gentium. The "clarification" is nothing more than a reiteration of the "new ecclesiology" that has been critiqued so very well by His Excellency Bishop Donald Sanborn and Father Anthony Cekada. While not intending to be a thorough exegesis of Levada's "responses," which Tom will leave to Traditional clergy, the article reminds readers that Modernists believe that doctrine can "develop" in such a way as to place it in apparent contradiction, as they see it, with a previous teaching of the Catholic Church. Not to worry, of course. We can simply justify their positivistic assertions that "subsists" is the same as "is" and that heretical and schismatic churches and "ecclesial communities" have been "used by the Spirit of Christ as instruments of salvation." Ah, no. Heretical and schismatic churches are not instruments of salvation. Never have been, never will be. Tom clarifies in his Free to Lead Souls Astray

  Editor's Note: Many thought the fireworks were last Wednesday on the Fourth of July, but the real fireworks came Saturday on 07-07-07 when the counterfeit imposter Benedict XVI continued his Hegelian game of synthesis by issuing the long-overdue and filled with land-mines Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum. There have been many who are singing Te Deum's and bending over backwards to compliment Ratzinger. They're just ripe for the picking. Several have written that youtube has several ditties on it and practically for every traditional mass they show it is the true Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, not the indult of Angelo Roncalli. But blind bliss prevents them from realizing this. They'll see eventually, but right now they're blinded by the blitz which is exactly as Beneratz planned. Patronize the plebeians for awhile until they have no out. Bishop Bernard Fellay continued with his fence sitting, saying congratulations to Benedict while still issuing a "but" and yet, not a firm but. It would seem one can get sore fence-sitting. Robert Moynihan of Inside the Vatican filed a report titled, "The Old Mass Returns." No, Robert, it is not the old Mass because it's the indult and will be celebrated by men who aren't even priests. Heck, this editor might as well drive down to St. Patrick's and offer the Motu Mass. After all, I know more Latin than the current presider down there who's not a true priest. That's how ridiculous this whole thing is and tragic as well for those who are being duped. Over the next week and most likely beyond we'll hear about many "opinions" and "feelings" but that doesn't really amount to a hill of beans because faith is not about feelings, but about divine law and that very prerequisite makes this splashy Motu Proprio dry, bone dry on arrival and already disintegrating as well, so sadly, the resistance of so many who have stood so strong against Vatican II and the inherent heresies and the very men who enabled, perpetrated and perpetuated the apostasy. That is why below we present sane, practical, documented reasons why it's all full of hot air and cannot have any authority with God. And after all, isn't that Who really counts?

  If any one is ready to refute those who think the new "extraordinary Motu Mess" is the answer to their prayers, it would be Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey who knows Ratzinger's agenda so well and knows the Novus Ordo or "ordinary Mess" as well as anyone, having written his expert analysis in his book G.I.R.M. Warfare. He equates Ratzinger's "generous offer of a universal indult" to Mr. Potter's offer to buy George Bailey's soul in the classic film It's a Wonderful Life!. George resisted with vehemence for though Potter tried to lure him in through the smoke of his big cigar, Bailey, played by the incomparable Jimmy Stewart, knew better when push came to shove. Now traditionalists are being pushed and Tom illustrates how we must shove back in his article exposing "Summorum Pontificum" for what it is, a big cigar that will go up in smoke as he explains in Mister Potter's Big Cigar
and Strictly by the Script
and Motu Plus Two

  While numerous traditionalists are rejoicing momentarily over Ratzinger's Motu, there are several lessons to be learned and those who know issue the warning loud and clear: Be careful what you wish for. Many in the SSPX and others in the resist-and-recognize camp are now going to have to cease their resistance if they recognize any legitimacy of the issuance of Summorum Pontificum. And that is exactly what BeneRatz is counting on in depleting the opposition to his one world false religion. Divide and conquer has always been his motto and it shows through loud and clear in his motu. Father Moderator, one of the leading voices in long saying "I told you so," lends his insight on the "Hoax of Summarum Pontificum" and the status quo of Ratzinger's letter, as well as his series over the last few weeks "What evil lurks beneath the New Indult?" which you can peruse at Traditio in July.

   Likewise, John Lane and John Daly, two of the leading apologists against the false popes, file their own reactions and document what's really behind this Motu if one only reads between the lines; if one only realizes what Catholic truth has always conveyed; if one only realizes that two wrongs can not make a right nor can a false pope make a rite that is pleasing to God. It's all smoke and mirrors, and the smoke is heating up as you can readily see if you step back from the stove. John Lane moderates a bevy of intelligent contributors who go on faith rather than feelings in illustrating how the vast majority don't realize they're already boiled and true Catholics need to pray that they will receive the grace to recognize they're just being tossed from the frying pan to the fire. They're already cooked. Several add their expertise at the John Lane's Aquinas Catholic Site where you can find the Bellarmine Forums

  Father Anthony Cekada presents the palette that is Summorum Pontificum and reveals the true colors of Benedict's rainbow of inclusive diversity. While Fr. Moderator has said "the Moto Proprio has more holes than swiss cheese", Fr. Cekada the trap that awaits those who think a better Mass is in store. All Ratzinger has done is build a larger mass trap as Fr. Cekada writes, "Let the traditionalists who promoted it say what they will. For Ratzinger, the Motu Mass makes them merely one more color in his Vatican II rainbow." It is, as Father Cekada summarizes in his four page essay, "IN the long run, the Motu Mass will contribute to the steady decline of the post-Conciliar religion and the eventual death of Vatican II - Ratzinger's devil-baby, for which Limbo was never an option. At all this, we can only rejoice. In the short term, however, many gullible traditionalists will be lured to the Motu Mass because of convenience or the prospect of 'belonging to something bigger.' But the negative aspects of actually assisting at the Motu are pure poison." Father Cekads explains in his insightful essay, The Motu Mass Trap

The inspiration of the books of the Old Testament consists in this: The Israelite writers handed down religious doctrines under a peculiar aspect which was either little or not at all known to the Gentiles.
       This is the old Jewish conundrum that has enabled Modernists to interpret the Scriptures the way they want to without taking into consideration that Holy Writ is the inerrant Word of God. It's all in the semantics regarding the semitics. In truth many of the Gentiles were familiar with the Old Testament but because of their heritage were excluded by Jewish Law which Christ addressed quite directly in St. Matthew Chapter 23.

Divine inspiration does not extend to all of Sacred Scriptures so that it renders its parts, each and every one, free from every error.

      This is another necessary diversion Modernists employ to break down the scriptures and keep what works for them and dismiss any others as "not from God" so they can forge ahead with their will rather than submitting to the will of God. Many a soul has fallen for this for pride goeth before the fall. The truth is that every word of Sacred Scripture is divinely inspired and all the books codified into the Bible and translated by St. Jerome are universally accepted by God as Christ approved in St. Matthew 16: 19. Therefore man must accept.

If he wishes to apply himself usefully to Biblical studies, the exegete must first put aside all preconceived opinions about the supernatural origin of Sacred Scripture and interpret it the same as any other merely human document.

      This is the great heresy that permeated the periti before Vatican II and saturated the Council like a poison that infected the whole. Man cannot "interpret" the Scriptures, but rather discerns the Word of God from what the Apostles, Fathers of the Church, Doctors and holy Popes have discerned through the grace of the Holy Ghost. One of the very reasons there are over 34,000 non-Catholic denominations today is because of the liberality of trying to change infrangible truths to justify and condone their own interpretation of what they think God wants, gaged on their own fallible opinions and influenced by the times. God does not change. His truths are unchangeable yesterday, today and forever.

   Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey has compiled a list of questions and answers to explain, as simply as possible, why it is absolutely necessary that all work together for the establishment here in the United States, and all over the world for that matter, of the Social Reign of Christ the King. That is the only way peace will ever be achieved on this earth and only through adherence to all Christ's holy Church has taught and is contained in the Sacred Deposit of Faith. Tom explains in A Catechism of the Social Reign of Christ the King
Cyndi's Finally Home from the Hospital

  Thanks to all who have been praying for the editor's wife Cyndi Cain after she underwent her second surgery within three weeks last Thursday evening July 5. Hopefully the doctors have solved the problem of an abcess in her lower intestine which caused complications from her major gastrointestinal surgery on June 20th when they removed 75% of her large intestine. This second blockage in the smaller intestine prevented her from improving. After her doctor basically guinea-pigged her on various medicines on Friday and Saturday, Cyndi realized they only made her worse and she decided not to take them because of the side effects. The doctor on duty over the weekend was most understanding unlike the head surgeon. Guess what? She got better within a few days and was released last night. A steady dose of prayer is the best prescription for healing all ills. She expresses her appreciation for everyone's prayers and concern and vows, with God's graces, to be better than ever if it be God's will. It will take a few months before she can function fully and will not be able to climb stairs for at least six weeks which means daily Mass will be out until the Fall. She'll offer it up with prayer at home and offer any suffering for the reparation of souls - especially for those who have been duped into thinking Benedict has "freed the Latin Mass." The devil is so clever and Cyndi is so saddened that people will "believe a lie" as St. Paul foretold in 2 Thessalonians 2: 19


EDITOR'S NOTE:    Last weekend we got spammed to death and it crashed our e-mail program, thus destroying all archived e-mails in our files since 2001.

      Click on the button logos above for the three best daily traditional Catholic available. 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.

      Each time we worthily assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in person, we gain graces that are placed in a "golden chalice", so to speak, and is offered to God to be weighed in substance when we stand before Him at our Particular Judgment. The more we have filled this chalice, the better will it go for our spiritual welfare in eternity.
      In this time of Epikeia when the true Church is in eclipse and so few true Masses available, when we pray the Mass prayers and make a spiritual act of Communion at home, graces are also received and placed in a "silver chalice", as it were, which, of course, is not as valuable as the gold one, yet is efficacious when the time comes to make an accounting for our lives.

    To die or not to die, that is the pivotal difference between martyrs and fence-sitters

    Today is the traditional feast of St. Thomas More, the King's Chancelor who would not budge in his loyalty to the true Successor of Peter no matter how much an earthly king promised. It is fitting then that Gabriel Garnica has filed an article whereby we can relate to the challenges More faced as well as another martyr of the Church across the channel a century before: St. Joan of Arc. Gabriel shows that temporal treasures are worthless in the spiritual realm and just how we live on earth and how we die will measure our worth when it comes to eternity. That is why looking to St. Thomas and St. Joan, whose feasts are just over a month apart just as they lived just over a century apart in medieval times, they both stood strong against corruption and collusion, and willingly gave their lives for God and their countries. It's all about never comproming our Faith no matter the lures. Gabriel explains in his column, Uncompromising Catholic Courage in the Face of Adversity

    We can never be independant if we depend in any way on the world, the flesh and the devil

      We bring you a redux of an article first written by Gabriel Garnica three years ago today in which he looks at the celebration of our nation's independence from Great Britain and concludes that no matter how much we proclaim independence and freedom, we can never be free if we subscribe to the world, the flesh and the devil. The only way to celebrate true freedom is in the fireworks of the heart, sparking the soul to burst with love for God in all things. No struggle for independence was ever achieved without the very attributes necessary to attaining holiness. The only difference was in motive and manner. God knows our hearts and those who don't realize this are the true fools, duds who will sputter and fizzle out. Only those who soar in alliance with Heaven's will can realize true independence. Gabriel explains in his redux column To Be Truly Independent, You Must Declare Your Dependence on God!

    Pope Pius XII warned of Communism Capsizing Catholics. Did Ratzinger listen? Not on your life or soul!

      Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey files a piece that is a follow-up to his recent A Betrayal Worthy of the Antichrist in which he exposes BeneRatz for the charlatan Judas he is. In this essay, Tom documents the words of Pope Pius XII who issued two encyclical letters about the situation facing Catholics in Red China. These papal letters call evil by its proper name and outline conditions that have not changed in the slightest since they were issued. Oh, the only thing that has changed is the conciliar Vatican's willingness to "play ball" with quisling "bishops" and "priests" in the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association. Pope Pius XII is reported to have said before he died, "After me, the deluge." Behold the deluge! Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us. That is Tom's cry as well and should be everyone of us in praying for the capsizing of the modern barque of conciliarism that in no way resembles the true Barque of Peter. Tom pinpoints the contradictions of His Holiness Pius XII and the imposter Benedict XVI in his essay After me, the Deluge!

    The "Chopsticks Chastizement" Cometh

      Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey illustrates so clearly why Benedict's latest "Motumultuous" should have every previous anti-sedevacantist penning apology letters to those who have stated without doubt that the conciliar popes and especially Joseph Ratzinger cannot be Catholic, let alone valid authorities because they have long ago apostasized. If Benny's scandalous concession to the Communists in Red China doesn't convince people that the Vatican 2 church is a false church then there is no hope they'll ever understand. His recommendations are akin to the Christians caving to the pagan Roman Emperors and offering incense so as not to hurt anyone's sensibilities. Ridiculous? Not as much as what modern Rome just issued in continuing the coercion and collusion for a one world order with a one world religion - that of the antichrist. Tom delves into the meaning in his masterful thesis in which he exposes the Hegelian hellian Joseph Ratzinger for what he is. A must read of Tom's meticulous application of previous reliable popes that condemn almost every action of the modern apostate imposters. Tom explains in A Betrayal Worthy of the Antichrist

    For the sake of your soul, make up your mind!

        Bishop Donald Sanborn has filed an excellent essay on breaking down the misnomer of sedevacantism being just a theological opinion, where, in fact, according to what holy Mother Church has always taught, the current fact that the Chair of Peter is truly vacant is a theological conclusion. Opinions can be dangerous and those who have been circulating false opinions masquerading as fact are the most dangerous whether they are conciliarists or anti-sedevacantism traditionalists. His Excellency breaks down the Five Errors of Opinionism and whether any are the correct position to hold. It comes down to whether the identity of a Pope could ever be a matter of opinion. The answer is a resounding no as you'll see in his breakdown in which he emphasizes that we cannot be on the fence for one cannot separate a true Roman Pontiff from the Roman Catholic Church. They are part of the whole. Opinion holds no sway when it comes to truth. Bishop Sanborn summarizes in his article The question of the pope: "Just an opinion?"

    Don't say you weren't warned. The Metz Syndrome surfaces again: Communism rules the conciliar fools!

    In light of Benedict's betrayal with his Letter to Red China and Tom's excellent proof of the fact that such a letter could not have come from a Catholic pope, but rather an antipope, yes even possibly an antichrist, we remind you that two years ago Atila Sinke Guimar„es weighed in on the charade going on between the conciliar church of modern Rome and the Communist People's Republic of China in which hypocrisy and apostasy on both parties' parts were and continue to be so apparent. It is all part of the bitter fruits of the Pact of Metz, all part of the abandonment of the apostolic universal mission to go into the world and preach the gospel to every creature. Sacred Scripture and Holy Mother Church have always taught that those who believe and are baptized into the Church Christ founded would be saved, those who do not will be condemned. From Atila's account of what the Vatican II church has been doing, which he has so expertly documented in his brilliant series Lamma Sabbacthani, the mission of saving souls no longer applies. Ergo, since this is directly contrary to all the truths which the Holy Catholic Church teaches and Christ can neither deceive nor be deceived, the church of modern Rome is an anathema as St. Paul has affirmed in Galatians 1: 8-10. There is no rhyme nor reason to what this two-headed dragon of modern Rome and Red China are doing in raising their ugly heads in persecuting and selling out the faithful and Taiwan except to be cooperators with the devil, not to mention mammon - personified in the atheistic communist government and policies of Red China and the corruption of the conciliar church. Can you say Betrayal of Christ? Atila, in his Bird's Eye View at Tradition In Action, documents the obvious signs with his column The Disastrous Cost of Vatican Ostpolik with China

      What if Vatican II did to the Holy Trinity what it did to the Holy Mass?

      Griff Ruby offers up a short query that is food for thought for those who don't realize what has happened over the past forty-plus years. What if churchmen decided to labor against a Divinely established Catholic teaching, such as that of the Holy Trinity, not by openly and explicity denying it (which would be outright heresy), but rather by simply laying down "mere" disciplinary decisions against it? Griff lays out the scenario in his brief essay to complete the month of the Most Sacred Heart, What if?

        Congratulations to the professed traditional religious of the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen who took their solemn vows on Wednesday, the feast of Our Mother of Perpetual Help during Holy Mass and Ceremonies for the Congregation. Sister Renee Marie, CMRI, who serves as administrative assistant at Mt. St. Michael, made her solemn profession of Final Vows before His Excellency Bishop Mark Pivarunas, CMRI as did Sister Maria Regina, CMRI who made her triennial profession and Sister Giovanna Marie, CMRI, a graduate of St. Michael's who just finished her year of Novitiate. She made first profession of vows for one year. In addition Nicole South became Sister Michael Marie of Our Lady of Refuge of sinners and began her one year novitiate, wearing the white veil of the novice. We ask your prayers for these dedicated Brides of Christ.

         Illegal Immigration is another word for Amnesty, another acrimonious agenda of the liberal lie.

      Gabriel Garnica returns with a poignant piece on the brouhaha presently consuming Congress which is going against the majority of their constituents. The public be damned. Lobbyists live and prosper in the dens of iniquity behind closed doors. Just as satan never gives up in his relentless pursuit to damn souls, so also Congress continues to hammer away at the very foundations of our country by trying to make Illegal Immigration legal and turning law abiding citizens into righteous alarmists who have consistently shouted "No on Amnesty!" Truly we are living in a time when evil is having a field day and good has taken a holiday because so few are willing to stand for God's Laws and obey their only King. But then, in the legal ramifications that have corrupted our system of government because the U.S., like the conciliar church, have abandoned the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ, the sentence will be severe both temporally and spiritually. Despite the will of God and the will of the people, Congress and the conciliarists forge ahead with their acrimonious agenda. When will we truly realize the "liberal lie"? You can't say you weren't warned! Gabriel lays out the true Catholic response in his essay What Would Christ Say About Illegal Immigration?

         Why even the Short Form of the Novus Ordo can't be valid

      In this time when Ratzinger is trolling for traditionalists with the "promise" of a Motu Proprio to "free the Latin Mass" (which he has not the authority to do for it has been forever free since the infallible bull Quo Primum in 1570) and when the revelation is made that he secretly plotted as far back as 1982 to fuse the "missal of 1967" into the "Indult", it is time to revisit the whole validity/non validity issue and to not draw it out but cut to the chase to prove definitely that the consecration in Novus Ordo services is not only invalid, but what the late Father James F. Wathen called it: The Great Sacrilege. Griff Ruby returns with a short summation that so simply syllogizes why the short form can not be qualitive because of the etc. that follows in the man-made rite of the Novus Ordo, making it null and void! Griff explains in his treatise The Long and Short of It


      Please remember the editor's wife Cyndi Cain in your prayers who was operated on Wednesday, June 20 for major gastrointestinal surgery at Holy Family Hospital in Spokane. She will be in the hospital for several more days recuperating. Twenty-three pounds of clogged colon were removed to eliminate the "enlarged, redundant" colon that had resulted over the past two decades, making it most uncomfortable for her to perform even normal duties. Now we can only hope that the surgery was successful and her immune system can handle the drastic change in her digestive tract. We thank all for their prayers. Before submitting to surgery however, she felt it necessary - rather she insisted on writing an article to not only assure all that she'll be okay, but to plead with those who have been so deceived by the claptrap that Benedict XVI is going to "turn things around" and is really a "friend of tradition." NOT! In effect her article has to do with surgery in that we can cut out the cancer that afflicts holy Mother Church by abhorring it and exposing it because when we weren't looking, the VulgArians changed the "seven hills of Eternal Rome that symbolize the Seven Sacraments and Gifts of the Holy Ghost" to the "seven hideous mounds of Modern Rome that personify the Seven Capital sins." She explains in her column, Flee from those who deceive

       On Monday BeneRatz went out of his way to try to explain that the "Spirit of Assisi" was and is "not syncretism" but we think he doth protest too much. Words are cheap and a dime a dozen, though Ratzinger is making sure everyone pays with his unprecedented copyrights of his own words. However, pictures tell the story and Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey provides several from countless photos available that prove the point: Vatican II ecumenism is syncretism and has been condemned by the infallible perennial Magisterium of the Church. The doublespeak diabolic deception that has emanated from Modern Rome for well over 40 years is starting to unravel at the seams with knowledge of Ratzinger's complicity in practically every heresy that has been committed by the counterfeit conciliar church. And working behind the scenes from Vatican II through the "papacy" of Karol Wojtyla, Ratzinger is far and away the most dangerous yet as Tom illustrates through numerous examples in bringing home the point of non-Catholicity in the counterfeit conciliar church. If the axiom is true that idleness is the devil's workshop, then the idolness of false images in the conciliar church has become the devil's delight. Tom explains in his excellent column Idol Time

      For the most recent pertinent columns by Dr. Droleskey, see above to the left.

          Rock-solid Column of the Church
      Today is the feast of the holy Doctor of the Church Saint Ephrem the Deacon, and in honor of this saintly Syrian, who was the second chronologically to receive such a title following Saint Athanasius, we present a brief profile of this early luminary of the Church. St. Ephrem was beloved by his people and one called the "Prophet of his people" and a deacon who combated heretical sects and Roman emperors, not by raising his voice in anger, but through Syriac poetry in winning the people to the Faith. His works are integral to the Syrian Church. In adherence to yesterday's gospel, Ephrem reached out and cared for the least of his brethren leaving the 99 to go in search of the one who was lost. This dedication to the will of God and uncompromisingly living the Gospel to win souls to the Lord show why he was a clarion of clarity to those suffering from the confusion of the Arian heresy. He is affectionately known as the "Harp of the Holy Ghost"

          Orator of Orthodoxy
      Thursday's Doctor of the Church is another of the magnificent luminaries God rose up in the 4th century. The holy bishop and Doctor of the Church Saint Basil the Great also faced the intense persecutions and calumnies of the Arian bishops and suffered greatly, never complaining and living a life of austerity while his fellow Arian bishops lived high on the hog. Like his good life-long friend and fellow Doctor of the Church St. Gregory Nazianzen, he,too, came from holy stock and had two brothers who became bishops; a father, mother and sister who became saints. This Bishop of Caesarea is one of the few, along with Popes St. Leo I and St. Gregory I and St. Albert to be given the august title "Magnus" - great. For a profile of this holy "Orator of Orthodoxy", we feature Saint Basil the Great

          Hammer of Heretics
      Wednesday was the feast of the twenty-first Doctor in chronological order of those given the highest honor of Doctor of the Church. Saint Anthony of Padua was a man who was not blessed with good health, but turned that weakness into one of his greatest strengths. He was a holy priest who truly understood the meaning of Crusade and conquered many to Christ not through the sword, but through his eloquent speech, miracles and humility. He sought the crown of martyrdom, but was rewarded instead with the miraculous phenomenon of having the Child Jesus visit him, resting in his arms to encourage and pray with this beloved Franciscan whose preaching and odor of sanctity converted countless souls to the Faith. He was Saint Anthony of Padua - "Hammer of Heretics".
        Confusion and Collusion with conciliarists
      In the most recent Catholic PewPOINT, editor Michael Cain exposes the cunning of the conciliarist agenda to divide and destroy any semblance of true Catholicism. Such is the modus operandi - "operation of error" authored by a real infiltrator, the bankrupt "soul predator" and presbyter of Spokane Fr. William Skylstad who just "happens to be" the head of the masonic, apostate non-Catholic USCCB. Yes, satan is pulling out all the stops in attempting to disrupt the ranks of those who have been striving to live God's will. He snakes his way through the "trees" of religious houses just as he did in the Garden of Eden. The branches of the trees he infects must be pruned, cut off and cast out. There is no other way! One can never dialog with the devil and those guilty of doing so should realize the horror of the "operation of error" that so insidiously slithered in to seduce some rebellious religious sisters of the CMRI. Because they did not discern the truth they now, tragically, "believe a lie." Thankfully, Roman Catholics in the Spokane area, who strive to live their faith as it has been taught from St. Peter through Pope Pius XII, have something the diocese of Spokane has not: A true bishop! Bishop Mark A. Pivarunas, CMRI who, to his everlasting credit, will have nothing to do with the counterfeit church of Vatican II, has put a stop to the collusion fostered by the conciliarists. Cain provides answers to the causes and the effects; consequences the rebellious religious may have never really considered in failing to heed St. Paul's words in 2 Thessalonians 2: 10. Cain explains in his editorial, The Confusion of Collusion

      The sources of the diabolical deceits
      Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey identifies the real culprit of the subterfuge to undermine the CMRI's theological position in an essay that needed to be published and, indeed, it was on Tom's site on Tuesday, June 5 with his column at But we felt it important to also publish his column here and received his permission to format it since we have added it to our permanent archives because it so powerfully says what needs to be said in the most charitable way possible and will hopefully stave off false rumors and rumor mongers who might relish the misfortunes of others. For the time being we are doing what His Excellency Most Reverend Mark A. Pivarunas, CMRI has advised, pray and talk less, much less, for, without the facts, one can murder the reputation of those who might be innocent and for that we will all be accountable to Almighty God at our Judgment. Therefore, until we know more facts, we remain obedient to this wise advise from a true successor of the Apostles, Bishop Pivarunas whose motto is "my life for my sheep." That is the kind of commitment from a true Catholic shepherd, a quality non-existent in the counterfeit conciliar church. Tom assesses the situation in his column To Each One According to His Way

    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:

  • Michael Dolan  17-year old son of traditional Catholics Dr. Hugh and Rita Dolan of Fairfield, CT. He was tragically killed in an auto accident in late May.

  • Jeanette Grob  A faithful traditional Catholic who passed away early on Trinity Sunday.

  • Lowell C. Cain  The father of the editor of The Daily Catholic who died a happy death in the state of grace at 4 p.m. CDT on May 23.

  • Those murdered on the campus of Virginia Tech

  • 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, rest in peace. Amen.

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

  • Cyndi Cain  Wife of the editor. She is recovering from major intestinal surgery 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 for keeping us informed.

      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.
