   As these pages load, we invite you to say as many Hail Mary's as necessary. You can click on the Rosary button to the left as well to see the Rosary Prayers in English, Latin and Spanish. 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 One and only Church founded by Jesus Christ.

  It's time to launch our special drive once again which will determine whether The DailyCatholic and SANCTUS can continue in 2009. It is easy to say "yes, we're all in favor of the restoration of Holy Mother Church" but we need you to put your money where your heart is. The DailyCatholic exists solely through donations with no salaries to anyone, and this year, we're it not for a few regular contributors, and we do mean "few" The DailyCatholic would have shut down. Many write saying how much The DailyCatholic means to them, but so few show their appreciation with a love offering. Yes, we are in tough economic times, but have you ever thought the reason we are is because many have hoarded their money instead of helping those working in God's vineyard? Food for thought during this penitential season of Advent, a time of almsgiving. Won't you please show your Christmas spirit by helping? We have nine levels from which you can choose to pledge a monthly donation to show your sincerity, to show how much you really believe in the Traditional Catholic cause.

Descending order of the Choir of Angels:

See what level in the Choir of Angels your heart is moved to contribute for the Restoration of Holy Mother Church. See Choirs of Angels Christmas Pledge Drive

The total lack of charity came to a head and continues in the aftermath of the elections, but should that surprise anyone considering America has shown by their omissions and commissions that they don't love God. How then could they ever truly love their neighbor? Therein is the downfall in domino fashion of America as we know it. Civilization has asked for Chastisement and God will answer in kind. Beware.

In light of the recent elections and vitriol of the culture of death and sin-all-we-want crowds that have demanded rights that fly in the face of God, Scott Montgomery weighs in with a short essay on what we have lost for true love (not amare or agape, or even the kind of charity caritas St. Peter refers to in 1 Peter 4: 8, but the sincerest love with which Christ expects us to love Him and our neighbor, to truly love: diligere) - is trampled under when family and values are abandoned and ridiculed. This is the kind of love our Lord references in St. John 14: 15, Si diligis Me, Mandata Mea servate "If you love Me, keep My Commandments." Have we? It's obvious America has not and the consequences are also quite obvious for we have not learned from history or from Scripture. The result, as Scott shows, is the decline of civilization, even in the great United States of America. so blessed for so long by God, but which now cries out to Heaven for vengeance because of its blatant sins and abandonment of God and His Laws, both Natural and Supernatural. Scott laments America's fate for their faithlessness in his essay Charity and the Fall of the American Empire

  • A Champion for All Ages by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey on the feast of Blessed Edmund Campion, the courageous priest who defied an earthly king to follow his heavenly King and how we must emulate him today. This year his feast is superseded by the transferred feast of St. Andrew the Apostle.
  • Another Fine Mess by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey on the social and verbal engineering that has totally clouded the whole concept of "separation of Church and State" and how so many have been duped by not only Modernist thinking both from the counterfeit church of conciliarism and protestant/secular camps' idiocy but also the true intentions of our founding fathers.
  • On the Last Day of the Year by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey on how the chaos continues from stampeding a soul at Wal-Mart to Modernist Rome's encouragement of the pagan, satanic Islamism. Yes, it was that kind of a year and it isn't going to change unless we get serious about our Faith and the true Sacraments.
  • Attempting to Coerce Perjury by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey on how Benedict/Ratzinger twists truth and theology to dismiss Thomistic logic and introduce Modernist thought into all he does, thinks and says.
  • Yesterday's Evils, Today's Norms by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey on how Our Lady warned at Rue du Bac of the satanic trends that would engulf the world, manifested in the music that spurred on the Revolution of the sixties and the total insanity of Modernist Rome to praise some of the chief antagonists of Christendom - the Beatles. If we ever needed our Miraculous Medals it is now.
  • The First Thanksgiving was Catholic by Dr. Marian Therese Horvat on the fallacy that the pilgrims celebrated the "First Thanksgiving". Au contraire. Twenty-three years before they landed on Plymouth Rock, a devout Catholic explorer celebrated the real First Thanksgiving that began with the truest thanksgiving - the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, followed with a banquet for nearly 600.
  • Unbent and Unaware by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey on how the aberration that occurred in Austria was in total concordance with conciliar norms for an abomination of desolation is just that whether it's bizarre with balloons and cookies or said reverently it is still and can never be the true Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
  • Foggy Bottom's Bloody Tradition by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey on all the outrage over Obama's cabinet selections. No difference from who they replaced and those before them.
  • Taking Advice From The Fuller Brush Man by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey on all the hubbub about a presidential "spiritual" advisor. It hasn't helped in over 50 years.
  • They Continue to Caricature Themselves by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey on why we should not be surprised at the insanity of theconciliar clowns in the conciliar circus.
  • In Almost Every Family by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey on the great sacrifices of doing the right thing before God even when it castigates us before men; especially when it castigates us before men.
  • Clarity Has Its Advantages by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey on wading through all the ambiguity to truly see with Catholic 20/20 vision.
  • One and Only One Path to Peace by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey on how true peace can only come via the Catholic path. All others are futile.
  • The Goddess of "Liberty", Thy Name is Blasphemy by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey on how such is slavery to sin.
  • Living With Murder Quite Comfortably by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey on the fact that both parties are party to abortion.

  • By Invitation Only by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey on the madness of ecumania.
  • Do You Hear the People Sing? by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey on how so many are hailing the revolution. Be careful what you wish for.
  • Chastisement Is A Silver Lining by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey on looking at the positive possibilities for grace.
  • Figures of Antichrist by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey
  • Into the Deep Freezer, All for Fear of the Jews by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey
  • Keeping It Catholic All the Time by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey
  • Suffering is the Only Path to Triumph by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey on how to be saints we must strive to want to be and that means sacrifice.
The Nine-Day Novena in preparation for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception began on November 29 and will lead up to the Double of the First Class Solemnity of Our Lady's feast - a Holy Day of Obligation on December 8th. Today is the Third Day. The Immaculate Conception is special to Americans for the USA is dedicated to this special dogma of the Mother of God, immaculately conceived in St. Anne's womb. More than ever we need to pray for America's soul on the Third Day of the Novena for the Immaculate Conception
From the Feast of Saint Andrew the Apostle (this year Dec. 1) to the Nativity of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ one may begin a special prayer, that begins "Hail and Blessed be the Hour", to obtain favors if one's requests are in accordance with God's will. It is believed that whoever recites this prayer with a pious heart as often as possible through Advent, 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. What better way to prepare for Christmas than the beautiful Christmas Novena Prayer
December 2008 (dec2008.htm)

Have we not seen the signs? There have been signs and we fail to see what they mean as the rest of the world goes merrily on its way toward perdition. Today's Gospel and Epistle forewarns us and yet so many opt to be politicaly correct rather than Christ-correct!.

John Gregory has provided Father Leo George Haydock's cogent comprehensive Catholic Commentary on the Douay-Rheims version of the New Testament. The First Sunday of Advent, the very first day of the new Liturgical Year begins the one-year cycle anew picking up with the apocalyptic warning Christ echoed in the Last Sunday of Pentecost's Gospel and Epistle. With the world, especially America ignoring the Scriptures of "not rioting and drunknenness," "not in chambering and impurities, not in contention and envy" should we follow the PC police and policies or Christ? That is a no-brainer to those who take their Faith seriously. Unless we "put on Christ" in all we do, we had better be prepared to put on an asbestos suit for we're going to need it when "the powers of Heaven shall be moved" and many will realize it's too late. For those who have clothed themselves in the armor of Faith and grace, there will be nothing to fear for "the kingdom of God is at hand" as indicated in the Haydock Commentary, Don't say we weren't warned

While arguments for Baptism of Desire might seem slim compared to Baptism of Blood, there are actually quite a few excellent references if one bothers to research for the full truth among the esteemed Fathers and Doctors of the Church that prove the actuality of Baptism of Desire, and totally refute the heresy of Feeneyism. In this month dedicated to the Holy Souls what better time to remember the countless souls in Purgatory, many there through the Baptism of Desire.

Griff Ruby resumes his mega-part comprehensive series "The Art of Scholastic Dishonesty" in exposing not only the heresy of Feeneyism, but also the intended deliberate dishonest deception of those who have deceived. Throughout the history of the Church no true Authority of the Church has ever ruled against what is called the "Baptism of Desire." While it is true those souls dying without the salvific waters of the Sacrament of Holy Baptism would not be members of the Church Militant,they would be members of the Church Suffering, and a few, such as St. Dismas, members of the Church Triumphant. Thus, in this month of the Holy Souls it is necessary to refute those who harm souls by denying what the Fathers, Doctors, Saints and Popes have accepted and never condemned: BOD. In truly studying the quotes attributed to reliable sources such as Saint Ambrose, for example, one can see unreliable sources not only taking these quotes out of context, but applying an entirely different meaning and presuming they themselves know more than God Himself. It's not only the height of scholastic dishonesty, but sheer stupidity, not to mention very dangerous to their own soul and those whom they mislead. Griff presents the first part of his treatise on BOD with, Fathers Know Best what Desires God Desires

Griff Ruby continues with the second part of his tenth installment. This series was launched in order to help souls. Thus this second part of the Baptism of Desire is published today, All Souls' Day for there are no doubt countless souls in Purgatory needing our prayers; many of those souls there through the baptism of Desire. While the Dimond Treatise has been well refuted in every aspect throughout this series, another Feeneyite deserves to be grilled on his scholastic dishonesty in deliberately leaving out the context of quotes that sway the reader to think a Father or sage Saint didn't know what he was talking about. Below you can see this in black and white, especially in respect to the respected Doctor of Grace Saint Augustine, and how the desire to defend Feenyeism prompts desperate heretics to not only stretch the truth about Baptism of Desire, but deliberately deceive by omitting the true intention of this holy Doctor of the Church and other Church authorities who have been quoted. In this age of instant gratification, we must remember that holy Mother Church has always deliberated slowly but surely. There are no such things as shortcuts, something evident by providing all the evidence to prove the scholastic dishonesty of Feeneyites. Desire to Know the Full Truth about Baptism of Desire

Now it can be told. Just as persecution laid the seeds for conversion to the true Faith over the centuries, so also did the Nine who stood firm and held the traditions as St. Paul urges in 2 Thessalonians 2: 14 despite the tactics used by the Society of St. Piux X to intimidate and crush them. In the process the legal process exposed more than the Society would want folks to know.

In true Edward R. Murrow fashion Fr. Anthony Cekada provides the facts in a "You Are There" way as he details the history of the bitter court battles between the Nine Priests with Archbisop Marcel Lefebvre and the Society of St. Pius X. Though written last onth, we wanted to feature it for this issue sice Father explains the contributing factors such as the mentality of the Nine who would not make any concession to conciliarism even when Lefebvre took the same foolish course after the death of his great enemy, Paul VI, and his negotiations with Modern Rome as Bishop Bernard Fellay has taken with Ratzinger. Father shows what's really behind the SSPX agenda and how they set themselves up as the church when in truth they have no more authority, even less than a Third Order, Confraternity or Holy Name Society. Father details the course taken, a story that prior to now was one sided from the Society's biased point of view that has allowed them to play both sides of the fence while not only straddling the proverbial fence, but intimidating their own parishioners. Father shares an ingenious legal loophole that turned out to be the "Silver Bullet", as the Nine priests dubbed it. Six of the nine are pictured above. They are 1. Father Donald Sanborn, 2. Father Anthony Cekada, 3. Fr. William Jenkins, 4. Father Daniel Dolan, 5. Fr. Joseph Collins, 6. Father Clarence Kelly. Three have gone on to become authentic Bishops. Were it not for the Nine's brave stand for the Truths and Traditions in the face of strong-arming by the SSPX parties that would betray their mission, tradition would have been sold down the river to the conciliarists. For, as Fr. Cekada shows, to the SSPX it was about property and money. To the nine it was about preserving the Catholic Faith and saving souls from the Great Apostasy. Their efforts have borne fruit for sedevacantist chapels have almost matched the Society's efforts in the United States. In truth, America is genuinely globally recognized as a bastion of sedevacantism and great hope for the future thanks to the valiant resistance of the Nine as Father relates in his account The Nine vs. Lefebvre: We Resist You to Your Face
