Advice to the SSPX: Stand firm to the traditions and declare once and for all the inevitable: Ratzinger is no Catholic!
- Credible Poll reveals that 79% of Catholics believe there is salvation OUTSIDE the Church. How little they really know.
The bitter anti-Catholic George Carlin was born and baptized a Catholic in 1937, but renounced it in his rebellious years and died outside the Church in this past weekend. Do you think he understood our Lord's words in St. Mark 8: 36?
"For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" (St. Mark 8: 36)
A Catechism of the
Social Reign of Christ
Sancta Maria, Regina Pacis, ora pro nobis.
Traditionally ever since July 9, 1906 when Pope Saint Pius X gave his papal approval for the Litany to the Blessed Mother as Our Lady Queen of Peace in the Chapel of the Motherhouse of the Sisters of the Sacred Heart this devotion has spread and now in 2008 it is as urgent as ever to pray for peace - the peace only her divine Son Jesus can provide, not man or temporal organizations such as the U.N. or any secular government. That is the reason there can be no peace today because the world has forgotten Christ and forsaken His role as our Sovereign King - our only Sovereign King! We can see the effects of this turmoil because of that as satan assaults every soul from Europe to Iraq to Afghanistan to Hollywood to modern Rome and everywhere in between, and with our soldiers enmeshed in a war with infidels in the Middle East and sodomy being elevated to a virtue where anyone speaking against it must be subjected to 'sensitivity training' because the sinner is offended and courts mandating sin now, we had better pray that God will stay His hand for the time of mercy has long passed and we are living on borrowed time - time one would think has only been provided by the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary because of the Rosaries said in reparation. Let us continue those marching orders and pray from the foxholes her holy Litany and the most powerful weapon we have in our possession: her Holy Rosary.
The first saint to ever have her mother as well as her very own murderer present at her canonization and one of the most recent authentic saints considering the null and void 'saints factory' insanity of the counterfeit church of conciliarism.
There is a commemoration today of the feast of Saint Maria Goretti, the twelve-year old virgin martyr who was the child of poor Italian farmers in the marshy flatlands of central Italy. When nearly twelve a young man, who lived in the same complex as she and her family, was overcome with fierce passion and made lustful advances towards her. When she refused him, reminding him that it was a sin and that chastity was so precious to her, the devil overcame him and he stabbed her several times with a knife. This young martyr was beatified by Pope Pius XII in 1947 and three years later on June 25, 1950 Maria became the first saint in the history of the Church to have her mother present at her canonization as well as her very murderer who had converted.

Do we heed Heaven's advice and turn our backs on the world and its lures, no matter the siren that surrounds and beckons us, or do we cave and link up with Mammon to satisfy our instant gratification at the expense of our immortal soul?
To enhance each Sunday's Epistle and Gospel we present this special feature provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. We publish it here in conjunction with the Epistle and Gospel for the Sunday Mass, with the cogent comprehensive Catholic Commentary penned by Father George Leo Haydock because the type size is normally so hard to read and not everyone has access to the Commentary, let alone the authentic Catholic edition of Holy Writ. For the Eighth Sunday after Pentecost and the Feria days this week, the theme is giving an account of one's stewardship, one's responsibilities over those things and duties God has entrusted each with. This means abiding by His laws and not being slaves to the world, the flesh and the devil for to give in to that triumverate of trouble will punch one's almost sure ticket to accommodations with Mammon who is so cunning, especially in the midst of those children of the light who are not on their guard, not tending to their duties and not vigilant to the Holy Ghost's promptings. You can better understand this in the Feria for the Eighth Sunday after Pentecost Haydock Commentary
After listening to Father Anthony Cekada's poignant sermon from last Sunday Trads, Why Can't We All Just Get Along? we could just throw up our hands and say 'what's the use, we'll never unite' or we can initiate a major effort to expose and debunk those issues that prevent a unification, such as Feeneyism. With the SSPX in the throes of a chaotic confusion as the Novus Ordo presbyters infiltrate the Society to try to coerce parishioners to go along with the Modernist program and try to force an ultimatum that is, in truth, a ticket for apostasy, it is time to take off the gloves and disprove once and for all such aberrations as Baptism by water only as Father Leonard Feeney erroneously and deliberately taught in defiance of His Holiness Pope Pius XII and the Ordinary, infallible and perennial Magisterium of the Church that it is possible to obtain sanctifying grace and, in that state, salvation through Baptism of Blood as well as through Baptism of Desire, for one can never limit God and we must remember the First Dogma of the Church is, indeed, Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus, but one needs to realize Church doctrine that "the Church" is composed of not only the Church Militant here on earth, but also the Church Suffering in Purgatory and the Church Triumphant in Heaven, thus comprising the Communion of Saints. Today we present the second in a comprehensive series by Griff Ruby titled, "The Art of Scholastic Dishonesty" and that's exactly what Feeneyism and those who stubbornly identify themselves as Feeneyites have been: Dishonest. Griff takes them to task, specifically Peter Dimond and his "treatise" that remains the only Marginot line left and which will collapse once Griff completes his masterful operation against the heresies of Feeneyism.
In defending the treasure of the Sacred Deposit of the Faith, one must glean the gems that are presented to verify the authenticity and veracity of what they reflect in the prisms of polemics.
Griff Ruby continues his comprehensive series in which he must do what St. Paul entreats in 2 Timothy 4: 2-5 and to be faithful to the word and what holy Mother Church teaches in accordance with the Apostle's words in Galatians 1: 8-10. In an effort not to mix metaphors, but to mine for the gems the Church has always held sacrosanct as divine truth, we hold a Ruby up to a Dimond to show the obvious imperfections in the latter's seemingly brilliant refractions of promoting Feeneyism. However, when looking closer one can see the gaps in the quartz that make its claim to being reliable totally bogus and extremely harmful to the investment of souls. The Extra Ecclesiae Nulla Salus dogmatic argument stands true as always, but the denial of Baptism of Blood and Baptism of Desire holds no light in the spectrum of the Communion of Saints and, does, in fact, dull the senses and leads to grave error and a serious detriment to unity within the Traditional Catholic movement. To understand how an omission can easily be a commission of error, see Part Two Ellipses can Eclipse Ecclesial Intent
The Fallibility of Father Feeney and his 'Feeneyites' is in full view how they failed to hold fast to tradition and Catholic truth in interpreting for themselves what they think and not what holy Mother Church has consistently upheld on Baptism of Blood and Baptism of Desire.
On this first day of July we bring you a letter written by Father Martin Stepanich, O.F.M., S.T.D., the esteemed elder statesman and theologian of the true Church and dauntless pioneer for Catholic truth. First run in the Four Marks it is now available at christorchaos.com for all to read. In it Fr. Martin takes no prisoners and well he shouldn't for there is no one living today who defended the Church teaching against Feeney and his cockeyed and dangerous conclusions than this noble traditional Franciscan. In order to educate all, including the misguided band of stubborn followers, he has released this powerful letter, concluding that "The Church’s teaching on Baptism of Desire and Baptism of Blood, as already repeatedly made clear in this letter, is the teaching of the Ordinary Magisterium of the Church, of which it is true to say according to Pope Pius XII, 'He who hears you, hears me.' If that is not good enough for the difficult Feeneyites, and if some of them insist that there must be a special solemn declaration on Baptism of Desire and Baptism of Blood by the Supreme Authority of the Church, that could very easily come when we once again have a true Catholic pope on the Chair of Peter. And you can be sure that the Feeneyites will not be comfortable in hearing an anathema pronounced against them." For the full letter, see
The "UnBaptized Saints" Deception
When words are omitted or added they can alter the entire message. This has been a favorite trick of satan for eons, especially with the diverse and intentional interpretations forged by multi-thousands of Protestant sects.
Griff Ruby begins a comprehensive series in which he must do what St. Paul entreats in 2 Timothy 4: 2-5 and to be faithful to the word and what holy Mother Church teaches in accordance with the Apostle's words in Galatians 1: 8-10. They say sticks and stones can break bones, but names will never hurt, however words can hurt souls when they are deceived and it has been done for ages by those who are hellbent on cramming square pegs into round holes. It is how the Arian heresy gained such prominence; how Luther altered Christian belief to apostasize from the true Church and take billions since with him; how one side has forced their ideology on others by twisting words and meaning to indicate something totally different than the authority conveying said words intended. This intentional twisting is done all the time and it is wrong. With that in mind, this first installment in this series "The Art of Scholastic Dishonesty" revs up with some obvious dishonesty in Sacred Scripture that has resulted in a chaotic array of over 34,000 sects that have apostasized from Christ's True Church. Griff deciphers the differences and how one can tell so clearly what is true and what is slanted to deceive as he points out in installment one, Word Twisting to Change the Meaning
Each time we worthily assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in person, we gain graces that are placed in a "golden chalice", so to speak, and is offered to God to be weighed in substance when we stand before Him at our Particular Judgment. The more we have filled this chalice, the better will it go for our spiritual welfare in eternity.
In this time of Epikeia when the true Church is in eclipse and so few true Masses available, when we pray the Mass prayers and make a spiritual act of Communion at home, graces are also received and placed in a "silver chalice", as it were, which, of course, is not as valuable as the gold one, yet is efficacious when the time comes to make an accounting for our lives.
