The Rock

Sermon on the Sacred Heart of Jesus


Bishop Daniel Dolan

Traditional Catholic Sermons

   With today being the First Friday of the month of February in these waning days of the Time of Septuagesima, we bring you a sermon from Bishop Daniel Dolan on devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. His Excellency speaks of the parable of the seed falling on good ground and bad ground. For many the seed of God's word can only grow if they are receptive to it, not caught up in novelties and emotional feelings, but have a firm faith. This can only be nourished through a serious approach to a life of recollection and detachment from sin for sin hardens the heart. To maintain this we need to have perseverance and trust in the Sacred Heart, the Divine Sower Who knows our weakness and our fallen human nature, and, yes, even our despair. All He requires is for us to persevere in our efforts and devotions. The many devotions are meant for God's glory, something few non-Catholics understand including a vast majority of conciliarists today who have abandoned so much Catholic culture in favor of pleasing the people in a "community of unity" where tolerance and diversity are promoted. So many are unaware of the intense fire of love burning around them for through devotions, especially to His Most Sacred Heart - which is one with His Immaculate Blessed Mother's Immaculate Heart (una Corde cum Mariam) - He draws us nearer to Him. The Two Hearts, often depicted with flames, are inseparable. But man, having these wondrous and safe salvific flames of Love to protect him, knowingly or unknowingly is drawn to another fire - hellfire - by his sins and satan, being the "ape of God", has his rock as well and it is rooted in ruthlessness where man has forgotten his roots. The Bishop closes with two perspectives from two holy saints and Doctors of the Church; first St. Anthony of Padua who points out that Christ is the Rock and in that Rock there is a hole. That hole is the wound in His Heart and He invites us to take refuge there, protected from all the ammunition the prince of the world will foist upon man. St. Bernard of Clairvaux offers the encouraging prayer: "The world rages around me, the body weighs upon me, the devil lays snares for me, but I do not fall because I am founded on Your firm Rock." Cor Jesu Sacratissimum, miserere nobis.


"Where the Bishop is, there let the multitude of believers be; even as where Jesus is, there is the Catholic Church"

The Pope who condemned Iconoclasm


   On this date 1,236 years ago in 772 Pope Hadrian I was chosen the 95th successor of Peter. During his 23-year papacy he restored the walls of Rome and the ancient aqueducts and was responsible for constructing the golden statue of the tomb of St. Peter and other elaborations at the Vatican. He was a strong opponent of iconoclasm and called the 7th Ecumenical Council at Nicaea for the specific purpose of condeming this heresy.
  It is also the 363rd anniversary of the death of the holy martyr Saint Henry Morse, a Jesuit priest who was martyred by hanging at the hands of the English Protestants after celebrating Mass. He, himself a convert, was responsible for the conversions of many both during his life and after his death. Can you imagine any Jesuit today willing to be martyred rather than compromising? Didn't think so. It illustrates so sadly to what depths St. Ignatius' great Company of the Society of Jesus has plummeted to in embracing the heresies of conciliarism, modernism, ecumenism, communism and liberal theology.

If the those promoting universal salvation through the evil agenda of ecumenism are not willing to convert back to Catholicism, then evacuate the Ecumaniacs!

In these last few days of the Time of Septuagesima, a time practically totally forgotten by the conciliar church of ecumenism, and as a postscript to last week's Chair of Unity Octave, we bring you an enlightening eye-opening series by John Gregory first published here two years ago. John points out how up until Vatican II, the Roman Catholic Church's mission was to fulfill all that was always intended per Christ's words in Mark 16: 15-16, Matthew 28: 19-20, and John 17: 21. With this in mind, John consulted with Professor Ralph "Braniac" Barfmen, Ph.D. No, he is no relation to the Bartman of Cubs' infamy, but the savvy professor is rather a very mysterious hermit, if you will over the last 40 years or so, thanks to the corruption known as the Robber Baron Council. John has managed to entice this orthodox but unusual doctor to comment on the dreaded document that started the conciliarists on the slippery slope of Ecumenism back in 1964 with the V2 decree Unitatis Redintegratio. John provides his cogent comments on the key erroneous and non-Catholic points of this conciliar decree. Today we present Part One in commenting on the Introduction and half of Chapter One of "'Catholic' Principles on Ecumenism". He prefaces his piece by letting readers know of Dr. Barfmen's extreme gasticular sensitivities to heresy and ambiguity. A Certain Type of "Movement" Part One


Why is it that Ratzinger doesn't care one wit for promoting the Social Kingship of Christ? We all know the answer. How many are willing to admit that is the real question?

graphic used with permission by artist Matthew Brooks this may not be reproduced here without written permission On this First Friday of the month of February, the month of Christ's Most Sacred Passion in which His Most Sacred Heart was ultimately pierced, we bring you Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey's latest article on how the counterfeit church of conciliarism, led by its chief antagonist, the died-in-the-wool Modernist one Fr. Joseph Ratzinger is doing all in his power to distance himself and the false church he herds from Catholic truth and the necessity for restoring the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ. An avowed anti-Thomist, Ratzinger has shown in the past and the present the diametrical dychotomy he favors in total opposition to true reliable Popes, which Tom cites in proving the very point as he writes: "Any baptized Catholic who rejects the Social Reign of Christ the King is part of the problem in the world today, not part of the solution. As there is no place for Christ the King in the "new theology" of Joseph Ratzinger and his conciliarist friends, who will be forever spinning their wheels as they seek to oppose various social evils without insisting upon a return of Christendom, something that they do not believe as a matter of firmly held principle is at all necessary or even an immutable part of the Deposit Faith, I believe that it is plain to see that such men are part of the problem we face today, not any part of the solution whatsoever. You are either openly for Christ the King or you are for the devil. It is that simple." That's the long and short of it as Tom illustrates in his article, No Place for Christ the King in the "New Theology"


We would perish in the flood of the world, the flesh and the devil were it not for the Ark of Salvation - the true Roman Catholic Church

We continue with the reflections by the wise and holy abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger on the Liturgical Time of Septuagesima and, this week, reflections for Friday in Sexagesima Week. The whole purpose of this feature is to provide something special so readers can enhance their spiritual lives, appreciate the traditions passed down and apply the principles of what Abbe Gueranger left to posterity in his masterful volumes known as The Liturgical Year. Today we share the magnificence of the Ark of Salvation. As Noah's was made of wood, ours is made of Rock, the Rock that is the Church Christ founded. Tying in with Bishop Dolan's sermon in today's issue, we can take refuge in that Rock and know that this is our passage over the rough waters no matter the era, no matter the persecutions. The imagery of the Ark ties in as well with the vision/dream of St. John Bosco and the beacon of the Two Pillars - the Holy Eucharist and Devotion to Mary's Immaculate Heart. Throughout the ages the Church has been that Ark, given to us from God as a refuge from the deluge as the venerable abbot describes in his Reflections for Friday in Sexagesima


Batten down the hatches! All hands on deck! The True Admiral of the Barque of Peter has been imprisoned by the mutineering conciliar scalliwags for nearly 50 years. But heavenly help, through prayer and penance, is on the way. We shall persevere. Fear not, for the Two Salvific Pillars are in view. Fight on for the True Faith!
    Today we focus on the Saint of the Day Saint John Bosco and to do so, we harken back three years to bring you an article first written by Gabriel Garnica on St. John's principles as a principal of boys and the difference between what he bestowed and the poison being peddled today. He would know, too, because he was given a mystical vision of hell in order to realize how easy it is to fall into perdition. His vision is included in our Sanity of Sanctity feature. Immediately above is quite a realistic depiction of the great battle in St. John Bosco's dream of the crisis that would come upon Holy Mother Church. It was painted by Matthew R. Brooks, who heads up Art for the Catholic Restoration and is reprinted here with his permission. However it cannot be reproduced from these pages since it is copyrighted by him, with all rights reserved.

Taking responsibility for our actions. To some that may see seem a novel idea, but, as St. John Bosco taught, it has always been the way of Catholic culture.

Gabriel Garnica sounds the clarion that we have lost what was encouraged by the holy founder of the Salesians Saint John Bosco. While this devoted priest was given the mystical vision of the Two Pillars and the great storm to come in which the Ship of the Holy See would be tossed to and fro in its struggle to be anchored between the Pillar of the Holy Eucharist and Devotion to Mary's Immaculate Heart, there were two pillars of thought that he entrusted to his students - his boys who were, for the most part the juvenile delinquents of his time in Italy. Many turned into fine upstanding men in preserving the Faith and fostering vocations. Something which is practically lost today for gone are the pillars for raising responsible adults: respect and discipline. Instead we are crippled with the crutches of disrespect and irresponsibility, leaning on excuse after excuse why something can't be done instead of trusting in God that it can be accomplished. Faith is a key ingredient missing in today's society. In fact, as Gabriel points out in his column the kind of faith St. John Bosco instilled is practically a lost art today. John Bosco and Tough Love


Yes, Virginia, there is a hell and those who don't believe it will when they get there!

In honor of today's saint, we bring you the frightening omen of St. John Bosco's vivid dream in which a guide - an angel - took him on a journey into hell which, just as the children of Fatima have confirmed, defies description. In fact, St. John Bosco's guide confirms this that Christ Himself couldn't even speak more in detail of the most horrible place ever created. This piece by Fr. Eugene Brown is must reading for every parent, teacher and especially sons and daughters and every Novus Ordo "priest" who counsels teens that what they're doing isn't so bad, not to worry about it. Au contraire! They should be very, very concerned and St. John Bosco shows very clearly and starkly how serious everyone should take their actions and inactions for by not being obedient to their parents, superiors and authorities they are paving the way to hell, a path paved with good intentions unfulfilled. St. John proves Hell is very real! and a word to the wise should be sufficient never to forget the images he paints in words. St. John Bosco's Journey into Hell


Today Terrorism and Conciliarism are our punishment for straying so far from God

We continue with the reflections by the wise and holy abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger on the Liturgical Time of Septuagesima and, this week, reflections for Thursday in Sexagesima Week. The whole purpose of this feature is to provide something special so readers can enhance their spiritual lives, appreciate the traditions passed down and apply the principles of what Abbe Gueranger left to posterity in his masterful volumes known as The Liturgical Year. Today we share his warning for Thursday in which the Abbot recalls how God allowed chastisements to be visited upon His people who veered from His path. Not only do we have all the accounts of the chosen people deviating from Him in the Old Testament, but Gueranger cites how pagan Rome was never converted to Christianity and for that suffered the ravages of the barbarian hordes; when Eastern Christians broke away from Rome the infidels were allowed to take over Constantinople and Islamism has spread from there. Later because Christians became lax, God allowed the heresy of Protestantism to engulf Catholic lands. Following the Council of Trent and the gains of Catholicism, once again those graced with the true Faith grew complacent and God has allowed His Church to be hijacked by the apostate robber barons of conciliarism. We can also see how God has permitted today's terrorism to torment so many because they've forgotten Christ and His rightful Kingship over all. Like the Jews of old, we need to put on sackcloth and ashes, repent and make reparation before things get better. The Abbot describes it thus in his Reflections for Thursday in Sexagesima


God is shouting to us with all these Global Warning signs He has provided, not to mention His infrangible Laws and Church, and still we do not hear Him? If we all took a page from St. Joseph's life and were just still and silent, if we would just shut out all the exterior noise, we'd hear Him in an instant. It is we who are causing the interference, not God!

Cyndi Cain returns after a one week hiatus with a poignant article that should leave us with our jaws dropped and hopefully our mouths shut and our ears and hearts open. We need to turn down the volume and tune into the whispers of the Holy Ghost. After all, how can we hear God if we're constantly talking? How can we communicate with Him when there is so much noise and clutter? Modern technology may be great to most but what is the benefit if it prevents us from communicating with the one Being Who we owe our life to? Why is it so few really can hear God? Why do we think that is impossible? After all He is God. He can do anything. If we who are finite can talk to the Infinite, how in the world can anyone think the Infinite cannot communicate with us? Maybe that's because we don't let Him into our lives. We're too busy, too occupied with things of the world and all its loud and obnoxious chaos. We would be wise to take a lesson from the silent saint the good and holy Saint Joseph whose words cannot be found in holy Writ but whose example should be forever with us for he is the Saint of the Virtue of Silence. Cyndi explains how quiet can be the ideal quietude we need in her lesson, I can't hear You, God!


One can string God along just so long before He pulls the string!

We continue with the reflections by the wise and holy abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger on the Liturgical Time of Septuagesima and, this week, reflections for Wednesday in Sexagesima Week. The whole purpose of this feature is to provide something special so readers can enhance their spiritual lives, appreciate the traditions passed down and apply the principles of what Abbe Gueranger left to posterity in his masterful volumes known as The Liturgical Year. Hopefully his words will spark a renewal of contrition and amendment to live as Catholics should in rejecting the world and its lures and striving for holiness. Few can explain so clearly the wisdom of holy Mother Church in laying out the liturgical Church year better than this man who could very well be a Doctor of the Church someday when the Authority of Peter is returned to Rome. Gueranger's reflections will hopefully wake many to realizing the treasure of sacrifice, self-mortification and penance in building the spiritual muscle to bulk up the numbers in restoring holy Mother Church to her former glory. Today we share his plea for Wednesday in which the Abbot reminds us how patient and merciful God really is. Is it not a wonder that He has been so patient with man and his sinful ways? And yet man hasn't comprehended the consequences, going along merily on his way oblivious to what God once did to stubborn man. Who is to say He will not do so again in some way? We do not know, but it's not wise to test His patience, to gamble that He'll let the chaos continue. As Gueranger asserts, we cannot remain neutral, just as Jesus said He who is not with Him, is against Him. We must commit to God and then do all He wills or perish in a flood of everlasting perdition. The Abbot shares the Church's position in his Reflections for Wednesday in Sexagesima


The song and dance of the conciliar minstrels sounds eerily familiar - too familiar. But of course you should recognize it, it's the old heresy two-step!

As a follow-up to his last article Singing the Old Songs, Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey takes the syllogism further in connecting the dots. What it comes down to is the fact that no matter the conciliar decade one might focus on, it's deja vu all over again. The only thing that changes are the names. The tactics remain the same and the heresy remains just as grave. No matter the spin the determination not to turn back, to continue doggedly in the course of ecumenism should make it all the more clear to those experts of Catholic doctrine that Joseph Ratzinger, like his conciliar predecessors, is going contradictory to what the holy Catholic Church teaches. No amount of gobbledygook, bafflegab or ambiguity can explain it away. It's heresy pure and simple. Tom reiterates that this is not his judgment, nor any other sedevacantist writer, but holy Mother Church. She has spoken through her infallible dogmatic Councils and reliable true Popes. No amount of canon law can ever trump Divine Law. Sometimes Tom's frustration is evident like he's talking to a brick wall. It's so manifestly clear and yet, as we pointed out before, several formerly trustworthy traditional writers seem to be caught up in the conciliar craze of doing the Bugnini shuffle. Go after the apostate bishops and cardinals, tear into the conciliar curia, criticize to the hilt programs and liturgies that have been stripped of their Catholic truth and roots, but don't ever, ever criticize the "pope." Interesting that Ratzinger was fair game when Roncalli, Montini and Wojtyla were doing their dirty work, but now that one of the very architects of Consilio, one of the movers and shakers of the progressivist reforms at Vatican II, one of the chief promoters of those Modernists "in exile" such as Hans Kung, Karl Rahner, and that ilk, one who at one time was ashamed to wear the Roman Collar, and one who who has come up "through the ranks" to achieve his life's goal and is ever more determined to protect the monster he helped create, now that Ratzinger has risen to the top of the pecking order, all bets are off with those too afraid of their own shadow to call a spade a spade. Is that loyalty to Christ? Is that loyalty to His Church? Is that loyalty to the Mother of God? One would say a resounding no. Tom documents where by remaining silent those who could be doing so much to expose the snakeoil men, are only enabling the poison to do more damage. Conciliarism is the culprit. Conciliarism is the cancer. It has to be cut out, totally eradicated from the Mystical Body of Christ. Tom explains further in his piece, Different Names, Same Results


You would think man would learn from past mistakes. But noooo! Man trods on in his sin. How long can God stay His hand from wreaking just revenge?

We continue with the reflections by the wise and holy abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger on the Liturgical Time of Septuagesima and, this week, reflections for Tuesday in Sexagesima Week. The whole purpose of this feature is to provide something special so readers can enhance their spiritual lives, appreciate the traditions passed down and apply the principles of what Abbe Gueranger left to posterity in his masterful volumes known as The Liturgical Year.

Gueranger's reflections will hopefully wake many to realizing the treasure of sacrifice, self-mortification and penance in building the spiritual muscle to bulk up the numbers in restoring holy Mother Church to her former glory. Today we share his short reflections for Tuesday in which the Abbot wonders how God can be so patient with man who seemingly wanders on clueless that he'll have to account for his actions even though God has laid the blueprint for eternal happiness through sending His only begotten Son and leaving His Spirit to guide His Church as the conveyor of souls to Heaven. One little problem. Most men don't seem to want to cooperate. Reflections for Tuesday in Sexagesima


The story of St. Francis de Sales is encouragement for our times for just as God raised up many heroes following the Protestant Revolution, so too today He will do the same if we adhere to our faith and pray


Saint Francis de Sales, whose Double Feast holy Mother Church celebrate today, was raised up by God in the aftermath of the Protestant Revolution as a key component for restoring Catholic truth with the counter-reformation of Trent. He was born in France, yet reached every corner of the world with his works and influence. His piety, zeal and energy caught the eye of no less than the Pope himself who made him one of the youngest bishops to rule the See of Geneva. Along with another holy religious - St. Jane de Chantal, he founded the Visitandines. He was known for his gentleness and meekness, and his holiness so well known that he was the first person to be beatified in the new St. Peter's Basilica. In 1923 His Holiness Pope Pius XI proclaimed this meek warrior of the word as Patron Saint of the Catholic Press


From Sin comes Slavery prompting Supplication that leads to accepting Suffering for the purpose of Salvation. This is the cycle of not only Noah's time, but our time. Unfortunately both then and now, man's heart has hardened so.

We continue with the reflections by the wise and holy abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger on the Liturgical Time of Septuagesima and, this week, reflections for for Monday in Sexagesima Week. The whole purpose of this feature is to provide something special so readers can enhance their spiritual lives, appreciate the traditions passed down and apply the principles of what Abbe Gueranger left to posterity in his masterful volumes known as The Liturgical Year.

His reflections will hopefully wake many to realizing the treasure of sacrifice, self-mortification and penance in building the spiritual muscle to bulk up the numbers in restoring holy Mother Church to her former glory. Today we share his short reflections for Monday in which we see in the story of Noah with all that God had provided, man still couldn't grasp that he would have to answer for his actions at death. Little by little the world grew more wicked. What was God to do? We continue with the Story of Noah and the preamble to the flood. Reflections for Monday in Sexagesima


Oh, to have the caliber of saints like the Golden Voiced Orator today to combat the heresies of Modernism.

In honor of today's Double Feast of the holy Doctor of the Church Saint John Chrysostom, we bring you a short profile on his life. Though the feast this year is superceded by Sexagesima Sunday, he is the first Doctor to be so honored in the calendar year. This great orator studied under one of Greece's famed orators and ultimately became one of the greatest orators himself, laboring for Christ and His Church. He was duly recognized by Pope St. Pius X as Patron of Preachers. Like the other Doctors of the fourth and fifth century, he combatted the damaging heresy of Arianism and was harassed for his orthodoxy. Like St. Jerome, he employed the wealth of his family to further his own studies before turning his talents to bring souls to Our Lord. This masterful Doctor, the "Golden-throated Orator" is Saint John Chrysostom who was known far and wide as The Golden Voice of Truth


Planting the Seeds of Faith in the Eye of the Secular Storm

We continue with the reflections by the wise and holy abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger on the Liturgical Time of Septuagesima and, this week, reflections for for Sexagesima Week. We begin today with the Story of Noah and the seeds of Faith. The whole purpose of this feature is to provide something special so readers can enhance their spiritual lives, appreciate the traditions passed down and apply the principles of what Abbe Gueranger left to posterity in his masterful volumes known as The Liturgical Year. Hopefully his words will spark a renewal of contrition and amendment to live as Catholics should in rejecting the world and its lures and striving for holiness. Few can explain so clearly the wisdom of holy Mother Church in laying out the liturgical Church year better than this man who could very well be a Doctor of the Church someday when the Authority of Peter is returned to Rome. His reflections will hopefully wake many to realizing the treasure of sacrifice, self-mortification and penance in building the spiritual muscle to bulk up the numbers in restoring holy Mother Church to her former glory. Thus, we share the Story of Sexagesima Reflections for Sexagesima Sunday


Why has the devil had free reign today? Could it be because the True Presence of the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ in the Most Blessed Sacrament is so scarce? Why else would exorcisms be so futile in the counterfeit church of conciliarism? The devil helped form the latter to empower his ravaging of souls.

On this day after the the close of the Chair of Unity Octave Week, this account by the exemplary Redemptorist Fr. Michael Muller, author of The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass written in the nineteenth century about a great miracle through exorcism in the sixteenth century at the height of the Protestant Revolution is an excellent footnote to the week to show that only in the true Catholic Church is there the True Presence Which can only be confected by a truly consecrated priest in the True Mass. One wonders if this kind of miracle could be in the offing to prove to conciliar Catholics that He is not present in their Novus Ordo lodges and that those presbyters who have been excommunicated from the true Church because they have deviated from the true Faith - even one iota - can do nothing to drive out devils, no matter how many "exorcists" Ratzinger calls in. A good example is the documented occasion in St. Peter's Square several years ago when John Paul II was powerless. Hmm, wonder why? Read the following and you will realize why. This is an article you need to share with your Protestant friends as well as conciliar acquaintances. They need to know for the sake of their souls in order to understand one must never ever accept substitutes. Even the devil knows that as you'll see in Fr. Muller's The Exorcism of Nicola Aubrey


Oh, if only we could go back and correct it all! But that's wishful thinking as we ponder what John XXIII was thinking by turning the patrimony of the Church topsy-turvy.

Time flies when you're having fun, but when it is at the expense of our Lord and His holy Mystical Bride, then it drags while hell's tempo accelerates. The clock started 49 years ago today and since then it seems like most have been going in slow motion toward Christ and His truths while in actuality racing pell mell away from Him at breakneck speed toward that ever-greased slippery slope to perdition. In this 17th issue of the 17th edition, The Daily Catholic Editor Michael Cain takes the reader down memory lane to conditions the way they were in 1959 and how far we have fallen since. Will we ever learn? From Benedict's latest Hegelian Zeitgeist it is obvious most have not and continue to blindly follow the pied-pipers of pan-religion right to the abyss. While the fallacious flute had been prepped well before 1959, it was first trilled on that Septuagesima Sunday when the newly elected Roncalli ignored our Lord's parable of the day. Ironic that back then "many were called, but few chosen" because those chosen ignored the call. Cain cites the plane crash of a trio of rock n' roll legends around the same time as the catalyst for expressing the aurora of an era that was just beginning - "the day the music died" -for ushering in the daybreak of revolution that would reach its apex in the savage 60's and lay waste to millions of souls and psyches long into the 70's, 80's, 90's and now well past the halfway point in the new millennium. If we were to mark that time it could best be described as Day of Madness: The Day Tradition Died


"Oh, he'll turn things around." Where have we heard that tired tune before?

For this final day of the Church Unity Octave Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey tackles a tough task: calling to task those who once so vigilantly exposed the grave errors of the long-time Modernist Joseph Ratzinger and who now have turned to "cheerleaders" for Benedict XV. Tom attempts to convince them to take their heads out of the sand and realize that calling outright heresy and apostasy mere "diabolic disorientation" only empowers and encourages the devil's disciples and confuses Catholics. Tom, once a nolens volens cheerleader himself of John Paul II, hammers home the point: "As has been demonstrated endlessly on this site, which exists more to reach those in the future rather than the infinitesimally small number of people who read it or who agree with its contents at the present time, at the core of Joseph Ratzinger's Modernist worldview is his Hegelian view of the nature of truth. This alone causes him to fall from the Catholic Faith. He believes in propositions about dogmatic truth that have been anathematized by the [First] Vatican Council and condemned by Pope Saint Pius X in Pascendi Dominci Gregis, September 8, 1907, and in the very Oath Against Modernism that he, Joseph Ratzinger, had to take prior to his ordination to the priesthood on June 29, 1951. Only those who are intellectually dishonest can refuse to acknowledge that Joseph Ratzinger's Modernist view of dogmatic truth, reiterated forcefully by him in his 'capacity' as Benedict XVI on December 22, 2005, places him outside of the pale of the Catholic Faith." Those may sound like strong words and they are, backed up by divine Law and the infallible, perennial Magisterium of the Church. He illustrates how we've been down this same road before and documents the very similarities of Wojtyla's early pontificate with those of Benedicts. Realize this now or rue the day you were duped. Know that if one deviates even one iota, they are outside the Church. Those who stubbornly stick their heads in the proverbial sands of denial and "we can't judge" (even though holy Mother Church already has passed judgment) will have to raise their heads eventually and when they do, well, they can deal with the truth now, or try to rationalize why they were so stubborn later. The problem is by then it just might be too late. That is why Tom takes it so seriously now. Time is short and we're dealing with eternal life or eternal death. Not a pretty picture seein gall those feathered derrieres on the horizon. But what's worse is all those "cautious necks" ripe for the chopping block. Tom tries to warn them in his excellent literary cantata Singing the Old Songs


When in need, no one better to rely on than mom, and God has sent us the very best: His Own Blessed Mother. Call on her.

On this last weekday of Septuagesima Week, we the closing reflection by the master taken from his masterpiece The Liturgical Year. It is an excellent source for Catholics to rediscover their heritage and appreciate the traditions passed down and apply the principles of what the wise and holy abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger imparts in his masterful volumes. On this day the Abbot urges us to turn to the Second Eve - the Most Immaculate Virgin Mary, our Mother to guide us in the vale of tears for by ourselves we are helpless and stumbling over our own fallen human nature. We need a mother to guide and scold us when we need it, encourage us when we're down. God knew just the person to send us, His Immaculate daughter, His only-begotten's son Own Mother, and His Spirit's pure spouse. Gueranger explains in his short treatise for this day with Reflections for Friday and Saturday in Septuagesima


How do you tell the weak links? Look for the bracing of the Four Marks. If any of those are missing it will collapse because it can't possibly be Catholic even if those posing as such claim to be. The Four Marks are the key.

In commemoration of the observance of Church Unity Octave, we bring you John Gregory's excellent essay on Church Unity first presented on these pages last year. It is a feature that should still tweak the consciences and comfort zones of every Catholic, especially in lieu of the Motu Mess, and in recognizing that platitudes are all fine and nice, but they don't address what Traditional Catholics must do in order to truly work toward true Church Unity and that is exactly what St. Paul directed in 2 Thessalonians 2: 15, "stand fast; and hold the traditions which you have learned whether by word, or by our epistle." These traditions have been sacked and obliterated by the false prophets of the conciliar church and proven heresy resonating from these VulgArians. John addresses twelve weak points launched by those not willing to admit that a heretic cannot possibly be a Pope, let alone a Catholic. He points out that these flimsy refutations to the accepted Church doctrine of sedevacantism are smokescreens to cover up the sedeplenists' own inaccuracies and unwillingness to truthfully face the facts. It takes a humble heart to recognize when one is wrong and be willing to pray and realize one cannot have it both ways. Note our Time Capsules for today. If Benedict XVI is pope, then all who preceded him up through Pope Pius XII were not and they were wrong, or else Benedict and before him John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul I, and John Paul II were not only wrong but have apostasized from the True Faith and therefore cannot possibly be Catholic Popes. St. Paul made that abundantly clear in Galatians 1: 8-10. John Gregory explained in his column, The Key to Church Unity


    
Day One of a Novena of Intercession to Restore Christ's Church to it's rightful hierarchical heritage

   Today readers can begin this special Novena which honors an early 1600 visionary Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres, a Spanish Conceptionist nun whose mission was Quito, Ecuador where she received prophecies for these time in which Our Lady warned of the dire crisis the Church is undergoing today. Prayer and penance are the only answer, and this year it practically dovetails into the season of penance and mortification - Lent. Enough talk, enough supposition, it's time to place it in Heaven's hands. On your knees, folks, we've got some praying to do. For more information on the origins and necessity of this Novena, we urge you to see Our Lady of Good Success.


The sensory perceptions of Evil have been greatly dulled and dumbed down thanks to the culture of death medium gods who dictate mores according to their norms.

Gabriel Garnica, though a few days late, files an essay that says volumes of the temperature of the times. The 35th Anniversary of the horrific. despicable Roe vs. Wade decision has come and gone. The hype of yesterday's news has faded to old news and the abortion agenda continues unabated. While platitudes were preached and endorsed by a lame duck president who, like clockwork, encourages the multitudes every January 22 but does little otherwise, the omissions of decency and right steamroll over consciences, dulling the fact that commissions of sin grow worse; especially now that those taunting the culture of death are growing desperate in realizing, with alarm, what could happen if people really were heard when they spoke out, really saw the evil. The pro-aborts can't have that, so more verbal engineering and smear campaigns are rushed out, as well as diversions, to make sure decency and virtue never see the light of day in the darkness that is evil. Gabriel explains in his feature, Talk No Evil, Hear No Evil, See No Evil...and yet, More Evil than Ever!


Never will God provide Amnesty for Abortion. He will give no quarter to a country who has rejected His natural and supernatural Laws. If you think so, you're fooling yourself and others. It shouldn't take an eagle eye to perceive that, if America does not convert to the True and only salvific Faith, she will perish. Yes, God will allow it to happen if we do not repent and make reparation beginning today!

Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey takes us back on this day to tweak our consciences to see if we truly comprehend the contradictions that, on one hand, call America a blessed country when, on the other, she carries on the most inhumane genocide in the history of mankind. We have become so indifferent to the causes and effects of abortion, so blinded by the social and verbal engineering of the enemies of Jesus Christ that we have, in essence, become animals. God is not pleased and we owe Him big time. We can begin, as impossible as it may seem to those who insist on voting for the lesser of two evils, by praying and working for reinstating the Social Reign of Christ the King. How? On our knees in prayer is a good start. Working to patch the problem with the bandaid of politicians is not the answer for then we put our trust in men. And well, you be the judge of that progress! No, we must work for the full conversion of Americans through the only means of making America as free as an eagle: living and proclaiming the truths of the only Faith God accepts. Hint, it's not any Protestant sect, nor the Jews, nor the counterfeit church of conciliarism. It is, rather, the only Church founded by Christ and we must lift His banner high and realize, really realize His Holiness Pope St. Pius X's infallible words, "for there is no true civilization without a moral civilization, and no true moral civilization without the true religion: it is a proven truth, a historical fact." No constitution can stand against that fact, no eagle can ever soar freely without God's breath. Tom takes the reader back to the roots of Roe v. Wade and how so many have been numbed and dumbed over the years as he explains in his special piece for this occasion, Thirty-five Years of Indifference

      Why this doesn't apply to Ratzinger
      The Fathers of Traditio provide the reasons why Benedict XVI does not fall under the category of respect for a Roman Pontiff mainly because he isn't one! In fact, it is nearly fifty years since we've had a true Catholic Pope. And yet, no one ever said there was a time limit on an interregnum.
