It is the custom for Traditional Catholics to mark above their entrance doors in chalk the symbol C+20+M+08+B. Hopefully the chalk is blessed on the feast by the priest when he also blessed the gold, frankincense and myrh. The formula includes the Roman Numerals of the year MMVIII; below it on the next line is the above symbol: C+20+M+08+B. The order begins C for Caspar; then a cross (+) which is followed by the first two numerals of the millennium 20, followed by another cross (+); then M for Melchior; then another cross (+), followed by the last two numerals of the year, then another cross (+), and finally B for Balthasar. It is a way for the faithful to recognize in their homes the Epiphany and the Kingship of Jesus Christ. The four crosses represent both the four centuries of waiting for the Messias, but more specifically the four gospels in which His truths and Kingship are proclaimed. This marking the threshholds of our homes is a beautiful custom that has been lost in today's culture when things of God are shelved for things of man.

Sermon from the Feast of the Circumcision in 2007

Bishop Daniel Dolan

courtesy of
Traditional Catholic Sermons

In the first of a two part Feast of the Circumcision sermon in which we present Bishop Daniel Dolan's presentation from January 1, 2007 today and tomorrow we will carry his sermon for this year, His Excellency focuses on the fact that how we live will determine our destination after our death. It is vital to keep foremost in our consciences the Four Last Things so that we can improve our lives now in order to avoid the inevitable if we continue in our wicked ways.

   As these pages load, we invite you to say as many Hail Mary's as necessary. 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 only Church founded by Jesus Christ.

"The use of the Latin language, customary in a considerable section of the Church, is a manifest and beautiful sign of unity, as well as an effective antidote for any corruption of doctrinal truth."

Pope Pius XII
Encyclical Mediator Dei #60
November 20, 1947

Not worth having a party if they will not be party to Christ as their King
      In the aftermath of the polarized results in primary elections in Iowa and New Hampshire, political punsters are trying to do damage control on all sides. What is the pulse of America? What do Americans want to hear? Right there we can see the whole premise of the election process and purpose of the presidency is built on mud and will collapse for it is not constructed on the foundations of the Catholic Faith and the necessity of recognizing Jesus Christ as the undisputed Ruler of all, ergo the Social Reign of Jesus Christ as King of all nations, especially here in the United States.

     "It will never happen," you say as you throw your hands into the air in frustration. Ah, not without prayer it won't happen. But today too many depend on man for answers and therein is the Achilles heel exposed. We are assured of being disappointed and deceived for if it is not of Christ and the only true Church He founded, then it is against Christ in accord with our Lord's words, "No man can serve two masters." And though several among the Republican candidates have posed that they stand for Christ, their promises and past actions assure just the opposite. Everyone of them, and that includes the man the media ignores Alan Keyes, subscribe to the heresy of Americanism.

      Over this past week political science expert Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey has written three essays on this very thing in which he addresses those who tout Ron Paul as the answer. While Tom admits Paul advocates some good things, it is the issue of total accord with Catholic truth that is blatantly lacking in every candidate. Tom engages those who get all fussed up over their respective candidates like a crazed charismatic. It's all about feelings and feelings have nothing to do with salvation. That takes grace and committment and that is what is lacking in every candidate. Tom identifies why as he traces the facade which has duped so many for so long:

    "Emotionalism and irrationality are two of the principle byproducts of the Protestant Revolt and the rise of Judeo-Masonry. Just look at how many female voters who voted in the New Hampshire Democrat Party primary reacted to United States Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton's display of tears at a diner in the Granite State on Monday, January 7, 2008. Many of those female voters believed that Mrs. Clinton was showing her 'human' side at long last, causing them to switch their votes for the 'historic' candidacy of United States Senator Barack Obama so that they could cast their votes for the 'historic' candidacy of Hillary Clinton, who said at her election night rally that the voters of New Hampshire had helped her to discover 'her voice.' This is madness. And anyone who thinks that naturalism of the 'right' or of the 'libertarian' bent is going to stop this madness is as out of touch with true reality, that provided by the eyes of the true Faith, as the lemmings on the naturalist 'left' who vote almost purely on the basis of how they 'connect' with a candidate who is promising 'change.'"

      Yet change is part and parcel the mantra of the conciliarists in dismantling the tenets and practice of the holy Faith. While Tom and a few others in the Traditional movement may be lone voices crying in the wilderness against all odds, we remind you of St. Augustine's sage words, "Wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it, and right is right even if no one is doing it." The only way to cast your ballot that is pleasing to God is with your Rosary!

There is only one standard of truth and it has stood for two thousand years. It will be standing long after the winds of change will blow in and out according to what people may want now to what they'll want tomorrow. There is only one issue and one barometer on how to vote: Do they uphold the cross with not one iota of compromise?

In his third essay this week of a trilogy on political science 2008 from a totally Catholic perspective, Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey exposes the problems with candidates running for the highest office of the land. They forget Who is higher. Tom enumerates several of the pitfalls citizens and clerics, who have bought into the heresy of Americanism, can fall into as he identifies the emotional rollercoaster so many strap onto in letting their feelings flap in the wind. No stability or strength can be identified with those candidates who waver or do not uphold Christ's teachings fully and the concept of separation of Church and State is a myth masterminded by the devil and fooling so many. While these candidates say they stand behind the "standard of truth", when push comes to shove it is not "politically correct" to admit that there is only one standard of truth, only one standard of true human liberty and that is the holy crucifix where upon the gibbet of the cross is all the evidence one needs to know where Ultimate Truth can be found. It is not in the ballot booth, it is not with any political party; it is not with any entity that gives even one ounce of concession to liberty, equality and fraternity - the mantra of the French Revolution and the emergence of Freemasonry in its attempt to snuff out Catholic truth. It is only by the very blood, the very last drop of His Most Precious Blood that we are here. Are we going to waste this precious life by insulting Him with a vote for His adversary? Showing Libertarianism's True Biases

Putting the "joy" in the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary during this Octave of the Epiphany

With this being the last Thursday in Christmastide before we begin the Time After Epiphany next week, we thought it would be inspirational to bring back John Gregory's meditations on the Holy Rosary in updated files for the rest of this week and next week before we enter the Time of Septuagesima and the Sorrowful Mysteries. He commences with the wondrous Annunciation as John provides inspiring meditation that many might not have even considered as he equates the sinful selfishness of contraception and abortion today as the antithesis of Mary's fiat, never more evident than on the brink of commemorating the 35th horrendous anniversary of Roe v. Wade in two weeks. God is not happy with those who deny not only a child a place in the inn, but snuff out the very life and soul of one of God's chosen ones. They have not tasted the wrath that will visit those who dare to play God, who dare to not serve, who dare to tempt Him or denigrate His Blessed Mother. That is why it is absolutely essential to have a healthy, renewed perspective of Mary's role in salvation and how, through the Annunciation, only by cooperating with her fiat can we enhance our chance of gaining Heaven. John shares his thoughts with the reader in his meditation of the beautiful words in Luke 1 announcing to the Virgin Mary her chosen mission for mankind in The First Joyful Mystery: The Annunciation.

Who is to say there is not another St. Charles Borromeo out there who will come forth to help set the Barque of Peter upright again? Hopes can be realized through Humility and Prayer.

To provide encouragement that there is hope on the horizon, Cyndi Cain provides a shining example of the possible. It happened before, why can't it happen again? That is the question you will ask when reading of the humility in the short-lived, but fully fruitful life of a holy and influential Doctor of the Church St. Charles Borromeo. In the midst of turmoil, tension, rebellion, lukewarmness, and heresies in the aftermath of wicked popes, God rose up this humble soul to wrest back the true faith from the usurpers and infiltrators. Now, nearly 500 years later the situation is even worse, for the Protestants have managed to cleverly masquerade themselves as part of and inside, and yes, even as the Church itself where man has reached, in their warped thinking that has permeated every conciliar curia and chancery, an equal footing with God. Heresy? Of course, but considering the counterfeit church of conciliarism's track record, should we be surprised? No, nor should we be surprised, if we pray with humility and hope, that God will be merciful and raise up more dedicated bishops of St. Charles' caliber to help bring holy Mother Church back to her rightful order. It can be done! Cyndi lays out the blueprint on how it worked a half millennium ago in her lesson, Humility Hungers for Holy Happenings

Understanding Divine Revelation and the Source. It is not debatable. God said it, we believe it, that settles it!

We begin 2008 with a redacted series from several years ago that serves as a primer on our faith, and Divine Revelation is a foundation of Catholicism and, Sacred Scripture, contrary to modern consensus, has always been a staple of the Faith. Therefore, it is important to cover the Word of God, compiled in what is called the Bible, for its purpose and background in a short overview of the Old Testament which began with "In the beginning God created Heaven and earth" in the Book of Genesis and ends with the last words of the beloved disciple Saint John the Evangelist in the Book of Apocalypse with "Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen" in the New Testament. Between these words are millions of others, all sanctioned as the Word and a guide for helping us attain everlasting life. That is a major reason why we provide these catechetical "points of enlightenment" in order to help more Catholics better understand their Faith. Regardless of where any Catholic is in his or her journey toward salvation, he or she has to recognize that the Faith they were initiated into at the Sacrament of Baptism, making them truly members of the Mystical Body of Christ, is the most precious gift they have been given in life. If they truly want to live their Faith as it was taught in the Church through 260 Popes, they must know the Faith and live it as Traditional Catholics. That's the only way to KEEP THE FAITH! Thus, we present HOLY SCRIPTURE: A Brief Overview

Pope Pius XI provided proof positive solid gold evidence that anyone who would buy even one iota of the diabolic gobbledygook bafflegab produced by the imposters, posing as popes since the revolution of 1962, have deviated from the faith and are following a dead end that only leads toward hell.

On yesterday's First Class Feast of the Epiphany of Our Lord, we celebrated the 80th Anniversary of the release of Pope Pius XI's no-nonsense Encyclical, which clearly and concisely declared as anathema the idea that any other religion was acceptable or salvific other than the Church established by Jesus Christ on the Rock of Peter. Of course you won't hear of such a commemoration of so powerful an encyclical from Modernist Rome for they have done all they can in the last half century to obliterate Eternal Rome. This encyclical, decreed by Pope Pius XI on January 6, 1928, sternly warns all to dismiss any talk of ecumenism for only in the universal Church founded by Christ are the Truths manifested and salvation possible. Mortalium Animos contradicts all the counterfeit church of conciliarism has and is attempting today with their ecumenical bent by compromising the Truths and Traditions that Pius XI sought to guard so carefully. How perfectly His Holiness released this encyclical on the First Class Feast of the Epiphany for the three Magi, Kings Gaspar, Melchior, and Balthasar, as earthly rulers, submitted to the King of kings and subscribed entirely to the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ, something Pope Pius XI had addressed just over two years earlier on December 11, 1925 in his encyclical Quas Primas. We provide this landmark encyclical, relatively short in length, for all to re-read and see how BeneRatz, Kasper and his ilk are in no way Catholic, but rather enemies of the one true Church, enemies of Christ. Holy Mother Church has spoken, when will we listen? Mortalium Animos

The smoke of satan has been wafting up from conciliar services for decades, but now that unpleasing incense dares mix with orthodoxy and, with its caliginous, noxious clouds of blackened smoke, engorge the good. How then can the light penetrate the darkness? By not giving any credence to Baal, by not offering incense to idols.

A feature that has gained a lot of buzz over the last few weeks, and which we have not been able to feature before because of our Christmastide Issue, is Father Anthony Cekada's article on una cum masses, a thorny point for many that is, basically stirring up a hornet's nest. Some believe it is not necessary. Others, including this editor, believes it is very necessary for to resist and recognize makes no sense. Christ Himself has said you cannot serve two masters and by resisting Benedict and then recognizing him tacitly or knowingly in the most sacred part of the holy Sacrifice of the Mass is a contradiction that begs clarification. Father attempts to do so. Unfortunately he has left the vast majority hanging as to solutions, which he has promised to provide. In the meantime many are more confused and that is why a follow-up is vital to soothe the savage beast that surges within those who are willing to compromise in contrast to the early Christians who would not offer even one grain of incense. It is wise to take it with a grain of salt and ask the Sanctifer for the graces to understand and respond accordingly in seeking out the purest form of the Immemorial Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Father provokes this in his excellent, documented thesis, which, like Christ's teaching to the Jews, might be hard to take, but it is necessary as Father explains in A Grain of Incense: Sedevacantists and Una Cum Masses As Though the Past Never Happened

The bitter myrrh emanating from those who, out of fear of offending BeneRatz, have hedged and hawed and basically clamped shut any resistance to his heresies ("hush, hush, we can't judge") where previously they spoke convincingly and nobly. Why? Two words: the "Motu Mess!" Wake up and smell the bitters!

Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey traces the dangers that occurred because of those who could have spoken out strongly against travesties and chose not to, either because they did not want to rock the boat from the comfort zone they enjoyed, or were afraid for their mortal lives while overlooking the real importance of their mortal souls, or they did not want to offend little credence to the very fact they gravely offend Christ. Such examples Tom likens to any acknowledgment by the VulgArians of the 80th Anniversary of Pope Pius XI's landmark encyclical Mortalium Animos. Tom documents how the adversaries of previous reliable true popes are the false popes of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, presently represented by probably the most insidious of the bunch - one Fr. Joseph Ratzinger, who in the days when he was a periti, was ashamed to wear the Roman Collar and whom true popes collared as an ecumaniacal heretic. The evidence is all so loud and clear, but the silence is deafening. Where are those voices today who once spoke so strongly against Ratzinger's heresies? Cowering for fear of tripping over their own tongues in trying to defend the indefensible, all the while enabling the enemies of the Church to continue their course of destruction As Though the Past Never Happened
