   Saint Nicholas of Tolentino from central Italy, received his name because he was born after his parents had made a pilgrimage to the tomb of St. Nicholas of Bari. He is one of the glories of the Hermits of St. Augustine. His life is remarkable because of the great devotion which he showed to the mystery of the Christ. He had impressed upon his body the stigmata of Christ. He is represented holding a lily, because he was always a model of innocence and purity. His feast dates from the time of Pope Sixtus V. For more on today's saint, see Saint Nicholas Tolentino

    It can definitely be dangerous to one's spiritual health if one does not follow the Doctors' advice, especially one so esteemed as the Angelic Doctor. But to deliberately forge St. Thomas Aquinas' medicinal manual for the soul - the Summa, well that can be criminal.
Griff Ruby resumes his mega-part comprehensive series "The Art of Scholastic Dishonesty" in exposing not only the heresy of Feeneyism, but also the intended deliberate dishonest deception of this heresy's defender, most notably one Peter Dimond, half of the combination known as the Dimond brothers. This week Griff pits them against seven Doctors of the Church. No contest. And yet one would ask, how dare two self-taught pipsqueaks from podunk think they know more than St. Thomas Aquinas by not only doubting, but misinterpreting his masterful Summa Theologica. Not to mention their audacity of calling other holy Doctors of the Church wrong while asserting they themselves - the almighty Dimond brothers - the only ones who are right. Of course, the latter consider themselves self-appointed gods who relish sitting in judgment of one and all whether that be many revered, and proven holy Doctors of the Church or present Traditional Catholic authorities as well as writers of good will who dare challenge their audacity. It's always been a practice that if you might disagree with your doctor, it wouldn't hurt to go to another for a second opinion, or even, rarely, a third. But by the time seven Doctors have all told you the same thing it's time to listen to your Doctor and humbly swallow that bitter pill of truth and accept that your Doctor knows more than you do. In his seventh installment, Griff provides what the Doctors have prescribed and The Evidence is Overwhelming


The surge to cage the heresy of Feeneyism continues

   In today's Epistle the holy Apostle of the Gentiles St. Paul urges us to "walk worthy of the vocation in which you are called." That we are endeavoring to do "with all humility and mildness, with patience, supporting one another in charity, careful to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace." It isn't always easy, especially when heresy creeps in so stealthily that it divides even Traditional Catholics. But the Church has always been aggressive against heresy for she knows how dangerous this raptor can be. Heresy, like a ferocious predator, lurks in the shadows, not baring its carniverous fangs on unsuspecting souls until it's too late. But there are ways to fight these rapacious dangers by going after the lair of the liars and snaring the prey through prayer and Catholic truth. That is our mission in this hunt to eradicate the vulturous vamps who seem to thrive by hemorrhaging hope, scattering the flesh of faith on the winds of twisted doctrines, seemingly sucking dry all avenues of grace through "the wickedness of men, in craftiness to the machination of error." It is a question of survival, a matter of love, that we intensify our mission to constrain the beast be it Modernism, Ecumenism or Dimonds in the rough. Editor Michael Cain separates the wheat from the chaff in his editorial, Setting the bait to halt the hate.

    You'll notice a bit of a different look on our pages. You see we have not been lying around doing nothing during this past hiatus. Rather, we've retooled our various port pages to streamline the main issue by sectoring items pertinent to the Credo Port on that page as well as News and Information Port for the latest headlines and articles by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey and the latest from Traditio.com. Another big change is that all devotion including the Daily Mass Propers for each day of September can be found on the Devotions Port. We've done so in order to streamline the main page each day so it will load faster. By transferring articles to the respective ports the next day or when more articles would cause longer scrolling, your daily issue page will load much, much faster. You'll notice we've also tweaked the masthead on these Port Pages to give it a bit more upscale look while maintaining the traditional aura of the masthead. We've color-coded our logline "Providing daily substance in all phases of Traditional Catholic living so readers can KNOW the Faith in order to KEEP the Faith!"

    We've also done so in an effort to transition the DailyCatholic into more of a resource site so that we will eventually be able to leave it up as such without having to put something new on each day. With donations way down in these trying economic times, even those who normally give have dried up. Times are tight, but we'll all see things through with the grace of God. After all temporal things pass, but eternal goes on forever. That is the only thing that sustains us and in order to make ends meet I must work on other projects to put bread on the table, especially in light of just being notified there has been a rent increase in our senior complex of $110. a month more across the board. That's steep when one has budgeted down to the penny. But that's the name of the game in these days of foreclosures where five and six bedroom homes are abandoned because of the real estate greed of overpricing and small families trying to keep up with the Jones. Every one is in over their heads, and because big families are passe, God has allowed this. Want birth control and abortion, what do you need a five-bedroom home for then? A one-bedroom apartment will suit you fine. And so well over 5000 homes with 2000 square feet and larger sit empty with bank repo signs. Ah, yes, the fruits of abortion and contraception! Where are these planned families to go when they can't afford the bump to $4000. a month mortages after having signed on with an enticing variable to lure them in? The only alternative is to rent. And so rentals have skyrocketed. It's a sign of the times.

    But it's also a sign of the times that generous souls still find ways to give to non-profits who are dedicated to bringing the uncompromised truths and traditions of Catholicism to as many as possible. You know what's next, don't you? Sorry, but I have to ask. If you can find it in your hearts to give whatever you can, even if it is less, we will be most appreciative. It's all about teamwork and if each reader gave one dollar there would be no need to solicit funds, but as usual it's always the few who give and the rest opt for a free ride without taking any responsibility. Which are you? I know we keep asking that, but something's gotta wake the echoes of the lukewarm. We've made it most simple to give with the PayPal link below. Per signum Crucis, de inimicis nostris libera nos, Deus noster. Sancta Mater, istud agas, Crucifixi fige plagas, Cordi meo valide.
