During our active Summer Mode this year we've been 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. Today, because of the shocking (not really when you think about it) news that a great, great majority of clueless 'Catholics' don't know their faith and think there is salvation outside the Church, we begin a series on correcting that heresy with articles that confirm the thrice defined and first dogma of the Church. We start with a column written by Jacob Michael in his Quid Dicit Scriptura? (What Saith the Scriptures?) series back in 2004. He utilizes the approved and superior Douay-Rheims Roman Catholic version in his apologia and holds to the Council of Trent's decree to "accept Sacred Scripture according to the meaning which has been held by Holy Mother Church and which She now holds. It is Her prerogative to pass judgment on the true meaning and interpretation of Sacred Scripture and will not accept or interpret it in a manner different from the unanimous agreement of the Fathers."
For all those dunderheads who think cafeteria Catholicism or Protestantism will get them to Heaven, wise up. There is no room for opinion when it comes to dogmatic truth. To put it more bluntly: It's dogma, dummy!
With the buzz that is accompanying the release of the poll of 35,000 by PewForum.org that 79% of Catholics believe the heresy that there is salvation outside the Church, we have decided to bring you a series of articles that treats that subject and sets the record straight for those numbskulls who have been so dumbed down thanks to Vatican II and all that has followed. We remind you that Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus is a thrice-defined DOGMA of the Church. Thus we reach back to Ash Wednesday in 2004 - the very same day The Passion of The Christ debuted in theaters - to bring you the cogent documentation provided by Jacob Michael in defending the First Dogma of the Church in which he also applies Old Testament passages as well as expanding New Testament passages and including early Fathers, Doctors and Popes of the Church to verify the infallibility of this rock-solid Dogma in his column
Outside the Church, there is No Salvation
Two Christian soldiers who lived up to what the Church Militant really means
Today is the Double of the Feast of Saints John and Paul, who were both Christian officers in the army under Julian the Apostate. They suffered martyrdom in their own house, on the Coelian Hill.They spent ten days allowed them to deliberate about renouncing their
devotion to Christ in distributing all their goods to the poor. The fact
that, unlike other martyrs who were buried outside the walls, they had their
place of burial in the very heart of the Eternal City, was looked upon by
the early Christians as a special honor granted to them and to Rome by
Divine Providence. Archeological discoveries have fully confirmed the truth
of the Acts of their martyrdom. Their dwelling-house, the place of their
execution, the graves, and important paintings have been brought to light.
The two brothers when on earth possessed one home and one Faith, and now in
Heaven possess the same immortal crown. For more, see Saints John and Paul
Nearly a year later we can see that those who bought into the Motu Mess are the poorer for it today as each day the fact becomes all the more obvious: It's a hoax, a fraud. There is only one way to be faithful to what Christ established and promised to be with until the consummation of the world.
We present today Cyndi Cain's final Symphony of Suffering column that ran on the Feast of the Immaculate Heart last year. Three months later she returned with her University of Virtue series. In her final piece, she urged readers not be stained by caving to the pressures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism and their Motu madness that causes our Lady to weep and to ask why have we forgotten what her divine Son died for, why He instituted His Church upon the Rock of Peter? Why have we allowed yourselves to be deceived by the glitter of convenience and the lure of peace on man's terms? It can only be accomplished when her Immaculate Heart triumphs, and that can only be accomplished through our fiat to follow her beloved Son on the narrow path in the catacombs of His true Church. Accept no substitutes but the authentic Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Accept no less than your promise to participate and to pray the holy Rosary, do penance and offer it as a glorious bouquet in reparation for the offenses against her Immaculate Heart. That is how we can stand firm and hold the traditions passed down. We must daily surrender our hearts to God, but never can we surrender our faith! Cyndi sends out her heartfelt plea to stand firm to the Faith and stand behind those apostolates which seek to preserve the True, unadulterated Faith in her column
"Stand firm; and hold the traditions..." Surrender Not!
Those Daring Men with their Diabolical Disorientation Agendas are Judges, Politicians and Prelates who have gone too far in playing God.
We bring you the last article that ran on these pages by Dr. Frank Joseph, a retired physician who is probably one of the most zealous pro-life crusaders in the country. His final piece three years ago dealt with the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision to reject the Partial Birth Abortion Ban, Dr. Frank Joseph registered his indignation that this judicial tyranny is running amok, which we have subsequently seen similar decisions as abhorent. He points to the culprits who are responsible for this - the judges, politicians and 'bishops'. Frank gets down to basics like the Constitution of the United States and Declaration of Independence and Ten Commandments to show the absolute diabolical disorientation of these men in their maddening agendas and that it is time for the common man to rise up and say, "enough! God is in charge, not you!" Of course, as Frank illustratd, few know this because those entrusted with the spiritual welfare of souls long ago abrogated their responsibility because they are curs of the Democratic Party and a curse to the sanctity of life. Frank explained in his column The Gall! How Dare They!?!
The Gall! How Dare They?!?
The signs are all around us and yet so few truly see the omens as Satan positions the Antichrist and his legions of lackeys for his last hurrah!
We bring you an article on the nature and purpose of a being every God-fearing soul should fear and be aware of - Antichrist. This is illustrated in the signs that will signal the arrival of the beast spoken of in Apocalypse and of which the Mother of God has warned against as recently as her approved apparitions at LaSalette. It is not who it is right now that is paramount, but why and what to be on guard for. The signs are all around us. Look at the further corruption of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, engineered further by one of the chief architects of the heresies of Vatican II...none other than one Fr. Joseph Ratzinger. Since this piece was written back in 2004, look at the advances of perversion, ecumania and outright squalor in the world today and yet so few truly see the omens. The prince of the world has indeed staked his claim for countless souls, more evidence of how desperate he is in his last hurrah, before he uses his final trump card in manifesting the himself incarnate as as the Antichrist. We can see four years later how true this is from what was elaborated on in 2004, titled
Antichrist - His Nature and Purpose
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
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
