  • Accustomed to Apostasy So dumbed down and duped have conciliar 'Catholics' become that they do not recognize blatant heresy and apostasy when it is staring them in the face in the headlines and on the news. Ratzinger is a heretic! No doubts about it. He's manifested that all so clearly with his "respect for Islam" and total disrespect and hatred of the only true Faith by which we can obtain Heaven. Flee, oh ye, who profess una cum with him. Dr. Thomas Droleskey

  • Notre Shame = new name for former University of Notre Dame Dr. Alan Keyes pinpoints the problem. St. Paul first identified it in Galatians 1: 8-10. Every person is accountable to God. Yet the campus gestapo are making it so difficult to speak the truth on campus that even Touchdown Jesus wouldn't be able to touch down on the South Bend Campus because authorities have their "marching orders" from Jenkins, who evidently takes his direction from Obama, not God. We recommend the new title: "Our Shame" in deference to protecting Our Lady's honor and proving once and for all, that Notre Dame, as with every other so-called 'Catholic' college in the country is no longer Catholic. Thank you, Vatican II! Thank you, Comrade Obama! Randall Terry's site 5-8

  • Knights of Conciliarism Vatican II has hijacked Fr. McGivney's noble Knights of Columbus. Today they are Masonknights with no foundation that crumbles at the nearest political correctness. They have foresaken the ideals and degrees they have taken before God and man in their solemn degree ceremonies that no lognere carry with it the sacredness and sincerity of truth and sensus Catholicus that helped build the Order. Who would want to belong to an order that calls Ted Kennedy a member? Dr. Thomas Droleskey 5-11
  • Domino effect of former Domino's founder throwing in with the counterfeit church of conciliarism Thomas Monaghan did not build his Ave Maria University on a rock, but on the Florida swamps and the charismatics aren't feeling so good right now.

  • Having taken twelve lengthy, comprehensive and convincing chapters to most definitely refute the grave error, nay, even heresy, of Feeneyism, Griff Ruby takes an intermission - not time off, mind you, but an interlude, if you will - to take the reader a bit behind the scenes, exploring events leading up to his making this series, and the balancing considerations that weigh against the "Sr. Sunshine's" of the world. Thus, during this lull after Easter, when Griff has reached the midway point of his mega-series "The Art of Scholastic Dishonesty," he begins the first of a three-parter in dealing with several topics in a potpourri fashion, commencing with chronicling how this series was developed and why. From its beginning in the late 1940's, the unique interpretation of "No Salvation Outside the Church" put forth by the Saint Benedict's Center in Boston has been responded to with disciplinary measures, short articles, slim volumes, and only single chapters out of larger books devoted to other topics. This left the Feeneyites to assume silence as being consent regarding all the many quotes and arguments that long went unaddressed in such abridged treatments. But this can be no longer. And thus, in time, it finally was time to set the record straight. Griff provides a chronicle of how and why he decided to engage the Feeneyites in Genesis of the Polemics Against Feeneyism


       For the twelfth day of May the flower offered to Our Lady is the tube-like HEATH-FLOWER with the corresponding Virtue being RECOLLECTION. The Heath-Flower comes from the Greek genus Epacris - meaning "upon the hill" where it grows. Many believe they sprouted on Calvary but this has not been proven in such climes. Yet, it would be appropriate for the Virtue of Recollection is centered on the Sacrifice of Christ upon Golgotha where His Blessed Mother stood faithfully to the end. So also are we able to stand with her through recollection of the Mysteries of the Cross. Appropriately, today's feast of Sts. Nereus and Companions focuses on this beginning with the Introit Ecce oculi - "Behold the eyes of the Lord are on them that fear Him, hoping in His mercy." As the Heath-flower hangs down like a religious' habit, so to speak, - such as a monk in a monastery - to remind one to put on the garments of God in humility and recollect, so also practicing the Virtue of Recollection prompts one to look within the soul and seek in all humility to think of spiritual rather than temporal things.

       The beloved disciple Saint John the Evangelist was granted the blessing of the vision of a woman crowned with twelve stars, clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet. According to expert commentators, most specifically the Haydock Commentary in the Douay-Rheims version, this woman is the Blessed Virgin Mary, with her virtues and her privileges, especially that of her divine maternity. Thus originated the Little Crown of the Twelve Stars of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which Saint John Calasanctius, Saint John Berchmans and many other saints made it a practice to recite frequently, especially during Mary's Month of May.

        In order to make this prayer more attractive, Saint Louis Marie de Montfort added to each Hail Mary one of the praises of the Blessed Virgin, with the invocation: "Rejoice, O Virgin Mary; rejoice a thousand times."

        It is this prayer which St. Louis gave to his religious families (The Montfort Fathers and the Daughters of Wisdom) as their morning prayer. He also recommends it to all those who embrace the devotion of the holy and loving slavery of Jesus through Mary. We combine with this beautiful prayer at the very beginning the designated flower and virtue for the day throughout Mary's month for she is the Queen of the May. You can print it out so that you have a copy to pray each day at Little Crown of the Twelve Stars of the Blessed Virgin Mary Devotion

    MEMORARE
    Remember O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence we fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, our Mother. To thee do we come, before thee do we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in thy mercy, hear and answer us. Amen.
    Composed by Saint Bernard of Clairvaux

        As you can see, we are back up and running daily after a horrendous period when our system crashed during Lent, making our Lent most meaningful in realizing what penance really means, considering we lost most of our software programs when the mother board fried. Thanks to Griff Ruby, the files were recovered, but we are still at a disadvantage without the applicable software programs to run the files. We are slowly instituting the process of building up our software library once more. Please be patient. We also remind you that we need donations in order to do this. Could you please help us in this modest request? We have no compunction in informing you that we are running on fumes. This is our mayday alert that we desperately need your help. We have received no bailout from anyone nor do we expect such, but we do expect those who visit this site to ask themselves how they can help. We ask where are the "Good Samaritans" out there? Other than a few, and we do mean "few" loyal and regular benefactors, everyone else seems to think we can operate without donations. In the demonic despot Barack Hussein Obama's world that might work by printing up more money and taxing everyone for it, but in the real world the reality is that we dearly need everyone to pitch in and help. As Dr. Thomas Droleskey has written often on his own site, if everyone who logs on once a week sent one dollar there'd be no need to ask again. That amount - times the number of visitors per week for The DailyCatholic - would basically set us up for the year with over $25,000. just there. However, we know that won't happen considering the apathy and modernist philosophy that has seeped into society today where so many consider themselves entitled. They seem to think they can use things for free with little consideration toward those, who have not only spent many, many years in learning and intense study (not to mention costs), but also continue to labor long in time and research to provide Catholic truth and information that would, in a true republic or monarchy, be duly rewarded or reciprocated in trade in the manner that made the guilds so successful and so Catholic. Did Our Lord not say, "a laborer is worthy of his hire" in St. Luke 10: 7? What say you? Won't you help us rebound?

    We know our Lord will not leave His apostles shorthanded for He will send His Spirit, the Holy Ghost which proves the Filioque of the Creed. How ironic when false prophets and antipopes are trying to justify the Jews in their sin, in this very week when such a denizen delves into the very region of Islam and Judaism and praises these religions that deny the Son and Holy Ghost. God detests such and Catholic truth condemns as heretical such actions. But should we be surprized? After all it's proven Ratzinger is no Catholic and we also know this because of Gospel of St. John the Evangelist on the truth. Our Lord foretold many times that the Jews would be a stubborn lot and indeed that has proven true for still today they brag about rejecting Him and expect faithful Catholics to tow their line rather than God's. More proof is visible for all to see today that the conciliar charlatans, by seeking to please the Jews and Muslims, answer to the prince of the world and not to the Son of God Who alone provides eternal happiness, re-emphasized so many times, especially in today's Gospel where Jesus promises He will always be with His children.

    The saintly Doctor of the Church Saint Gregory Nazianzen is the fifth in a chronological list of the holy scholars of the Church, was another from the 4th century who also faced the intense persecutions and calumnies of the Arian bishops. Son of two saints - Saint Gregory Nazianzen the Elder and Saint Nonna - and the sibling of two others - Saint Caesarius and Saint Gorgonna - this Doctor of the Church teamed with another Doctor of the Church - Saint Basil - to uphold true teaching in combating the heresies of his time. The holy bishop St. Gregory Nazianzen is considered the Church's Theologian. This Cappadocian shepherd also nurtured a young protege who would turn out pretty well himself, one Saint Jerome. St. Gregory is often called the Administrator of Theology


    Griff Ruby presents a column in which he asks: Is Bishop Fellay the answer to the end of the Crisis in the Church? Does he have the answers? Many within his own Society don't think so. They feel they are being betrayed. The question remains: Is he being beamed into the Vatican for the good of Catholics or at their expense? What assurance does he have that the Modernists can ever be sincere and honest? From what has been seen thus far one would be wise to suspect 'there's something rotten in Denmark' as well as Rome. A word of warning to those who place their hopes in Modern Rome: Don't! Griff lays out the parameters in his column To Go Where No Saint Has Gone Before


    In choosing the Latin word with its meaning and etimology, we hope more will be attuned to hearing Latin read at the altar and better comprehend the beauty of the Mother tongue. The VerbumQUO today on the Feast of the holy and worthy Pope Saint Pius V is "ædificábo" which is "I will build" for the Latin future first conjugation singular of ædificáre. This verb fits perfectly with Pope St. Pius V for he, of all Popes, built what Christ had established 1533 years earlier by codifying the infallible dogmatic decrees of the Council of Trent and set in stone "in perpetuity" the continual Sacrifice with the Latin Mass, often called Tridentine Mass from the time of Trent, but known universally today as the Traditional Latin Mass with his infallible Papal Bull Quo Primum, assuring the bread and wine would be properly confected through his decree De defectibus Editor Michael Cain explains in The True Reason for celebrating Cinco de Mayo


    In choosing the Latin word with its meaning and etimology, we hope more will be attuned to hearing Latin read at the altar and better comprehend the beauty of the Mother tongue. The VerbumQUO today is "desoláta" which is the Latin adjective for "desolate", a state that St. Monica found herself in since she herself was helpless to help her stubborn son. Thus, in such a state, she turned to God, persevering through constant prayer for the son she had brought into this world. So great was her love that all she asked was his salvation. Through her steady perseverance Saint Augustine went on to become not just a convert, but the staunch stalwart of the Faith, the great Bishop and Doctor of the Church, effecting countless conversions that were planted by the humble seeds of holy desolation in his mother who trusted in God's love and mercy. Editor Michael Cain explains in The Fruits of Perseverance


    In bringing you a feature first published three years ago, Editor Michael Cain presents another VerbumQUO for this Double of the Second Class Feast of the Finding of the Holy Cross with the VerbumQUO today being Crucis, which is the Latin for "of the Cross", the singular possessive of the genitive and taken from today's Introit, Collect, Epistle, Secret and Communion for today's Proper of the Mass for the Finding of the True Cross Nos autem. The Holy Cross is the focal point of our lives for which we venerate and carry with us daily. As Christ showed that there can be no Resurrection without the Cross, there can be no Victory without the Cross for us. We must be willing to take up our cross and follow Him daily. Only then can we be assured of sharing in the triumph. Cain explains in By this Sign we will Conquer


    Editor Michael Cain presents a special VerbumQUO for today's feast, first published three years ago, in hopes that, in choosing the Latin word with its meaning and etimology, more will be attuned to hearing Latin read at the altar and better comprehend the beauty of the Mother tongue. The VerbumQUO today is persecutiónem, which is the Latin for "persecution", taken from today's Epistle, and a perfect reminder of what today's saint whose feast we celebrate - Saint Athanasius - underwent to keep the Faith when seemingly all others had abandoned it for Arianism. So also today Traditional Catholics are persecuted in so many ways, deprived of the venues to practice their faith, they are forced into the "catacombs" to preserve the True Faith. In Athanasius they can take solace for he was the The Godfather of Dry Martyrs


        Yes, these are frightening times but we can take heart from the "Apostle of Tradition" Saint Athanasius who, in the time of the Arian heresy which pales in comparison to the heresies abounding today, stated, "They can occupy our churches, but they are outside the true Faith. You remain outside the places of worship, but the Faith dwells within you. Let us consider: what is more important, the place or the Faith? The true Faith, obviously. Who has lost and who has won in this struggle - the one who keeps the premises or the one who keeps the Faith? Even if Catholics who remain faithful to the Traditions are reduced to a handful, they are the ones who are the true Church of Jesus Christ."    The second day of Mary's Month of May is the Feast of the first man honored as a Doctor of the Church. That would be Saint Athanasius, the holy Bishop who withstood the brunt of the greatest apostasy in the Church until this present day when The Great Apostasy has arrived. It is in looking to this holy Doctor that we can take great hope and courage to stay the course and fight for the Faith as he did sixteen centuries ago. It was this stauch defender of Catholic truth, this Alexandrian Bishop who persisted against the Arian heresies through numerous popes. He was banished by emperors and the Arians four times. But in the end the True Faith won out, thanks to the persevereance of men like Saint Athanasius. Against all odds this Alexandrian Bishop persisted against the Arian heresies through numerous popes and was banished by emperors and the Arians four times. But in the end the True Faith won out, thanks to the perseverance of men like Saint Athanasius to whom we call on for intercession today when the VaticantwoArians had usurped the True Church and eclipsed Her, driving true Catholics into hiding to practice their faith just as Athanasius was forced to do seventeen hundred years ago. The more things change, as we see in today's Gospel, the more they stay the same for God's infernal enemy is our enemy and we should not fear man, but he who can destroy the soul. St. Athanasius is an ideal example of staying the course for he remains the Apostle of Tradition
