During our active Summer Mode this year we'll be presenting each day an outstanding column from our excellent array of contributing writers past and present that remain just as pertinent today as when they were written, in many cases even moreso considering the course of events over the last few years and the realization of the truths that were applied by our writers. On this day when we commemorate the historical feast of Saint John Fisher, the only English bishop who remained true to the Church in defying Henry VIII, we bring you the rock-solid reasons why today there are so few loyal bishop left. One of those loyal prelates is Bishop Mark Pivarunas who we featured in December 2005 with a Pastoral Letter released in 1997 on the Papacy.
The enemy, true to Sacred Scripture and evidenced from documentation of the masonic Alta Vendita, has truly produced a "Revolution in Tiara and Cope" where even today both have been expunged for a more modern look as the conciliar church tries to mask itself as Catholic.
His Excellency Bishop Mark Pivaranus traces the history of the papacy and illustrates clearly that, faithful to Christ's promise, Holy Mother Church cannot preach error and yet they have preached mega-errors over the past 40 years. That alone would suffice to come to the conclusion the conciliar popes are not Catholic, but he shows not only did the holy Apostle Paul foretell the Great Apostasy in 2 Thessalonians 2: 3-4, but the very enemy, true to Sacred Scripture and evidenced from documentation of the masonic Alta Vendita, has truly produced a "Revolution in Tiara and Cope" where even today both have been expunged for a more modern look as the counterfeit church of conciliarism tries to mask itself as 'Catholic'. Christ has given us the barometer of how we will know the true popes from the false prophets: "By their fruits you shall know them" (Matthew 7: 20) The Bishop shows that, thanks to abandoning the absolutes of Christ's truths and compromising those very truths which no pope had ever done before, they have abandoned control of the Primacy of Peter and yet the Papacy continues, albeit, in a state of extended sedevacantism. He explains in his Pastoral Letter
There is nothing fishy about today's Gospel for if we cooperate fully with Christ's graces we can be assured of the Bread of Life for nourishment of body and 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. For the Sixth Sunday after Pentecost we are reminded that through baptism we die to sin and are crucified with Christ, confident in knowing that if we are faithful to Him He will always be faithful to us, and, as St. Mark's Gospel illustrates in the loaves and the fishes, there is no end to His mercy and promises through the two great sacraments which our Lord has placed as the priority for salvation: Baptism and the Holy Eucharist, assuring we will always have nourishment for the soul as we see in Fr. Haydock's cogent comments for the Sixth Sunday after Pentecost Haydock Commentary
There is a commemoration today of St. Paulinus, who was Bishop of Nola in Southern Italy. So great was his charity that he sold himself into slavery in order to ransom the son of a poor widow, who had been carried off by the Vandals of Africa. He was afterward set free, and returned to Nola where he died in 431. Otho III brought his
body from Beneventum to the little island in the Tiber near the Trastevere. Pope St. Pius X had them carried back in triumph to his episcopal city at Nola, and ordered a new Mass in his honor to be inserted in the Missal and his feast raised to a double in the Universal Church. His figure is one of the most attractive of ancient times. Without leaving his monastic retreat, he exerted great influence on his times; he was not a man of action, but of prayer, given to solitude and a lover of poetry and fine arts. Though there is no commemoration, it is also the feast of St. John Fisher, the holy bishop - the ONLY bishop who stood up to the apostate Henry VIII and gave his life for Christ and His true Church, the spotless bride. How many faithful bishops are left today in the world? Yes, that's right. Very few who would have the conviction of St. John Fisher. Pray for our traditional bishops for they are the ones who shall lead us. Pray they will instill the virtues in their flocks to not deviate one iota from the true faith; to never compromise. For more on these saints, see Saint Paulinus of Nola and Saint John Fisher
The lengths the conciliar newchurch has gone to destroy the true message of Fatima shows only too clearly how much it hates Fatima
Though he has not written for several years, we present today a 'blast from the past' in which Mario Derksen could see so clearly the connivance of the counterfeit church of conciliarism over the facade they have so sinisterly erected over the holy shrine of Fatima by choking out the sacred and replacing it with the profane as has been proven. Five years ago Mario pulled no punches in documenting the Newchurch's relentless, blatant and blasphemous efforts to destroy Fatima and its importance in Church annals for, like any criminal, they must destroy the evidence or else be caught for the deceiving liars they are and their agenda which is, pure and simple, dictated by the prince of the world - the winged warrior of all evil who directs the obliteration of the beautiful Fatima basilica so that the most mundane monstrosities of the new age can be erected to all the gods who serve at the altar of lucifer. Mario outlined how this subterfuge was able to gain legs as he explained in his column
Finishing with Fatima - How much Newchurch Hates Fatima
A theological treatise to be given to Novus Ordo "priests" ordained after 1970. Where does your parish "priest" stand?
Father Trinchard, esteemed author of the books, "New Mass" Is Conclusively Invalid, Latin Mass Prayers Explained, and Apocalypse of the Mass to mention just a few, provides unmitigated proof that the chances are if you or your parish "priest" were ordained less than 37 years ago, you or he are not truly a Catholic priest. That is the sad fact as Father delineates what the New Order purposely did to alter the divinely-ordained rite of Holy Orders to give the world a plethora of presiders with no power to forgive sins or confect the bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, Soul and Divinity at the Canonical Consecration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The consequences are catastrophic for souls and speaks volumes of the enemy's intent to destroy Christ's Mystical Body: for without the sacraments grace is lacking and without grace there is little adherence to the constituted evangelic traditions and necessary disciplines for living and perpetuating the holy Faith, outside of which there is no salvation. No wonder there have been no fruits (cf. St. Matthew 7: 15-21). If you are one of those ordained after 1968 or 1970, call Fr. Paul. We know it takes a humble heart to admit you've been duped, but what price pride when the salvation of your own soul and the souls of those you are responsible for are at stake? Please, think very seriously about what Father documents below and ask the Holy Ghost for guidance to come back home to the true Catholic Church.

A Primer to help your friends trapped in the conciliar establishment to better understand why the NOM or "eucharistic celebration" is not from Christ nor from the Church He established! It is not Catholic!
Timothy Duff, who taught Traditional Catholicism for decades and is also a consummate expert on Venerable Mary Agreda's masterful work Mystical City of God, provided a primer on how to help our friends trapped in the Novus Ordo establishment to see the truths of the True Mass, the True Faith and to better understand why the New Order 'Mass' is not from Christ nor from the Church He established! It is not Catholic! The title of this article seems obvious enough, does it not? What Catholic could be found who would not agree that the Church is not above Christ? Yet the belief that the Catholic Church has more authority than Jesus Christ Himself is actually the very core of the error of those who attend the Novus Ordo Missae or "New Order Mass" (NOM). It is a sacred duty of charity for those whom the Sacred Heart of Jesus has mercifully called to attend exclusively the Traditional Latin Mass to desire the same grace for others. That is why Tim shares this "how to explain why" to help our friends truly understand Catholic truth as he explains so clearly in his magnificent essay The Church is Not Above Christ
The Church is Not Above Christ
Please continue to keep Sister Mary Olive Rowley in your prayers. She is back home but experiencing many ailments as many do when they leave the hospital. She also had back surgery - ouch! As we said before, besides the surgery she also was found to have a "hole in her heart", perhaps a hole that can only be filled by her suffering to bring cold and hardened hearts back to Christ and His True Church. Please keep Father Martin Stepanich, OFM in your prayers as well. In addition, word has reached us that Father Vincent Bowes, a Traditional Catholic Carmelite priest and mystic revered by many committed Catholics, recently broke his hip. Not a favorable situation when one is a priest in trying to say Holy Mass or just getting around. Oh, what these dry martyrs have gone through in reparation for souls! Speaking of Traditional priests, also keep Joseph Berry, 89-year old father of Father Eugene R. Berry in your prayers. He's back home after having a pace-maker inserted in his heart. For an updated list of those suffering, see Please Remember in your Prayers
