  • As we settle in to this Time after Pentecost with the major feasts of Trinity Sunday, the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Corpus Christi, and the Solemn Feast of the Sacred Heart now behind us, we focus on the saints honored by holy Mother Church for doing extraordinary achievements in ordinary, holy ways. Today's saint, Saint Ephrem is a good example of this. His humility saved him from being deceived by Arianism even though most in rank higher than him fell for the deception. We provide a brief profile on this early luminary of the Faith in honoring St. Ephrem as the Harp of the Holy Ghost

          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 www.christorchaos.com. 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

    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.
