It was roughly 2008 years ago that three sage men of royal lineage set out on a journey westward guided by a star, the light in the darkness. This landmark sojourn was truly an epiphany for that is when Christ our Savior, the long-anticipated promised Messias manifested Himself to the Gentiles, the non-Jewish world. It was a journey prophesied by several prophets of the Old Covenant, specifically Isaias as the Epistle for the Solemnity of the Epiphany documents and the Gospel of the same day chronicles.
Since then we have had many wise men come to adore and then go out to proselytize the King of Kings, Lord of Lords. But since 1950 one can count on one's hand the number of wise men who have followed suit. In the last few decades, other than several traditional bishops and numerous traditional priests who steadfastly refuse to give one iota of concession or credibility to the counterfeit church of conciliarism, the sage, virtuous men of good will have diminished greatly as the darkness grows.
Over the years we receive several e-mails and letters from well-intentioned Catholics who consider us "in schism" because we will not go along or give any credence to the Robber Barons who stole in at Vatican II and began their own church. So did Martin Luther and Henry VIII, not to mention the apostate infidel Mohammed followed by countless others who dared to think they had a better idea than the Triune God Himself. Since our confirmation that the conciliar 'popes' cannot be true Successors of Peter due to their own excommunication (ipso facto latae sententiae) through their deviating even one iota from the Catholic Faith as decreed in countless Church documents such as Cum ex apostolatus officio, Satis cognitum, Pascendi domenici gregis, and Mortalium animos to name but a few rock-solid reasons to reject the Modernists, how can we or anyone for that matter, before God, call these conciliar 'popes' "Holy Father" when they have, since Angelo Cardinal Roncalli, rejected Christ's truths, choosing to fashion a man-made religion and altering the constituted Evangelic traditions held sacrosanct for millenniums? There is no such thing as "evolving truth." In truth, they are enemies of Christ and properly identified by St. John the Evangelist the second chapter of his first Epistle, verse 18 and 22 as Antichrists.
You see, despite alienation from many friends and family, we can never 'go back' to the scam that we, like millions of others, had fallen for. You think Bernard Madoff fooled people with his Ponzi scheme? It can't hold a candle to the biggest scheme ever devised: the conciliar church formed at Vatican II with the heretical document Lumen Gentium.
Ironic, would you not agree, since the title of that document was the "Light of the Gentiles"? And yet, rather than being a "light", it only ushered in a callous, caliginous crust of faux Catholicism which underneath was no longer the wheat of truth, but molded, stale and, yes, poisonous gluten that has contaminated everything those 'luminaries' of Vatican II tried to cook up and force-feed to the gullible. And we were all so gullible for we were taught to trust our bishops and priests, and especially the Pope. After all, it's the Catholic way. The problem was, as we know so surely now, that those very bishops, priests, and 'popes' since the death of His Holiness Pope Pius XII, were not Catholic and so they had no intention of preserving the Sacred Deposit of the Faith.
Ah, there's the rub. It was only through the grace of God and our cooperating with those graces that we were able to finally see, to connect the dots and prove, without a shadow of a doubt that those who occupy the conciliar churches, dioceses, chanceries, curia and yes, Rome itself today are imposters, calling themselves 'Catholic' and posing as the Catholic Church, but in truth are the very varmints who vent against Christ and His Church by going contrary to what His Church has taught for 2000 years, what was handed down from Apostolic times. God cannot change and neither can the infrangible tenets of His holy Church no matter what the world postures.
Yet, to take such a position today is akin to suicide in the eyes of the world. Even if the world doesn't recognize heresy as such or comprehend that those promoting heresies are heretics, God does. That's all that matters. Traditional Catholics who cling to unadulterated Catholic truth with no exceptions in the face of so much apostasy and heresy, are considered fools, nothing more than vagrants, even trumped to be "hate merchants" because they dare to turn their back to the world, the flesh and the devil. Yes, we dare because we must for the sake of our own souls and the souls of countless others.
That is why we publish The DailyCatholic to be a navigational guide to illuminate the darkness in so many hearts and minds so that it will reach to the soul with spot-on Papal decrees by true, honest and dedicated Popes; infallible doctrinal Councils, the Traditional Propers of the Mass pre-Bugnini, and writers who will not deceive but tell it like it is and back that up with documented proof, most specifically Dr. Thomas Droleskey who remains the most prolific Catholic writer in the world today and identifies the heresies and scandals today by citing the very condemnation by the Church of these anathemas.
Of course, as the age-old adage goes, you can lead a mule to water, but you can't make him drink. Will you be so stubborn as to refuse to discover for yourself the truth of the Ponzi-like scheme that has scammed so many souls over these past 50 years? Once you manifest His good will, you will hunger to know the truth and when you realize all that we publish is 100% in accord with Catholic truth that cannot evolve or change, you, too will understand why we have continued to follow that star.
Are we wiser than others? No, but we are willing. And that is all it takes, a willingness to open your heart and mind to our newborn Savior, to place all your cares in the wood of the manger. Our Blessed Mother will take it from there and open new doors so you can come home to the wood of the manger and from there journey to the wood of the Cross strengthened by the merits of Jesus won on the Cross and built upon the Rock of the true Catholic Church which is diametrically opposed to what poses as the modern 'Catholic Church' and it's CEO Fr. Joseph Ratzinger today.
We need only to look to the Scriptures to see the truths of that last statement, such as St. Matthew 7: 15-20; 16: 18-19, and 28: 19-20; St. Mark 16: 15-16, St. John 21: 15-17; Galatians 1: 4-10; Ephesians 5: 1-33; 6: 7-19; 2 Thessalonians 2: 3-14; 2 Timothy 4: 1-8; and Apocalypse 3: 15-16.
If one would take the time to pray and read these cited infallible words of divine Revelation, one will begin to understand that too many have been hiding from the truth; the truth that is in plain sight. Take up the challenge and be among the wise. Let the Star of Bethlehem shine on your heart and soul and open your mind to what is, always has been and always will be. To aid you we provide a crib sheet, if you will, on The DailyCatholic, especially on our Credo Port page, of these truths and expose the heresies and apostate actions of those who would deceive in our Features Port and links to reliable sources in our News and Information Port, all in harmony with our Devotion Port page that refuses to recognize any changes since the death of Pius.
Those who might be outraged that we show no respect for a man who shows no respect for the highest Holy Office he has usurped and no respect for God or the souls of those a true Pope would be responsible for, should be righteously outraged and feel the same way once they realize the truth, once they truly understand that this scam has continued to this day and so many have been duped, robbed of their life savings of grace. We strive to provide the proofs with our excellent array of writers and links. You'll note we are most careful with who we link for they must be tried and true impeccable sources that we can recommend so that you will not be scammed.
Unlike the temporal treasures lost in Ponzi schemes, spiritual treasures can be recouped. However, it takes cooperation with God, conversion back to the true Catholic Faith and repentance. It is the recurring message of Saint John the Baptist who we have heard from often during Advent. He was right. You will find, if you are truly of good will, that when you put your mind to finding out the truth, that we are right as well. We know because God cannot be wrong. That is the failsafe key to reaching the right conclusion. That is the best present we can present to you this Christmas and all through the year as we wish you a blessed Christmas and pray that you will be willing. Now it is your turn. Are you willing? God is waiting for the wise to return.
