To those who have lost their sensus Catholicus what is scarier than anything that can be conjured up for Halloween - dia de los muertos - is that they do not see the grave fallacies of what Count Ratzinger and his conciliar zombies are doing in sucking whatever Catholicism still exists from the minds of the flocks, thus deadening hearts and souls. As exhibit A we have Benedict ignoring those martyrs who gave their lives in England for Christ and His true Church in the face of fierce opposition, oppression and persecution rather than become Anglicans. Evidently it doesn't matter anymore if we can have a compromise that forgets the bloody martyrdoms of those who would not compromise with Henry VIII and his man-made false religion of the Church of England (read Anglican/Episcopalian) and why they sacrificed their lives. To Benedict that's all water (read: blood) under the bridge as far as this modernist Hegelian in charge of the conciliar church is concerned in making conciliatory cosmetic advances to another imploding false structure as Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey documents in his essay Defaming The English Martyrs

    And for exhibit B we offer the Chinese Martyrs who must be flabbergasted at the total sell-out of Benedict Arnold, erh, Benedict XVI (what's the difference? both are traitors) in condoning the People's Communist National Catholic Church founded by that loveable dictator Mao Tse Tung, you know, the guy who murdered 70 million souls (not to mention abortions). You see Ratzinger now is pressuring those in the underground Church who have strived since the fifties to remain loyal to Rome to join Mao's church. They know now, without a shadow of doubt that Rome did not remain loyal to them or to Christ as you'll see posted by Traditio Mao would be so proud of Benedict XVI

Sermon on All Saints Day by
Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI

Prayer to St. Jude

   Most holy apostle, St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the Church honors and invokes you universally, as the patron of hopeless cases, of things almost despaired of. Pray for me, I am so helpless and alone. Make use I implore you, of that particular privilege given to you, to bring visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need that I may receive the consolation and help of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly (here make your request) and that I may praise God with you and all the elect forever. I promise, O blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, to always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you. Amen.

Prayer to St. Joseph
    This Prayer to the Patron of the Universal Church was prescribed by His Holiness Pope Leo XIII to be recited after the daily Rosary during October, month of the Holy Rosary. Click here to print out the prayer.

    To thee, O blessed Joseph, we have recourse in our affliction, and having implored the help of thy thrice holy Spouse, we now, with hearts filled with confidence, earnestly beg thee also to take us under thy protection. By that charity wherewith thou wert united to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God, and by that fatherly love with which thou didst cherish the Child Jesus, we beseech thee and we humbly pray that thou wilt look down with gracious eye upon that inheritance which Jesus Christ purchased by His blood, and wilt succor us in our need by thy power and strength.

    Defend, O most watchful guardian of the Holy Family, the chosen off-spring of Jesus Christ. Keep from us, O most loving Father, all blight of error and corruption. Aid us from on high, most valiant defender, in this conflict with the powers of darkness. And even as of old thou didst rescue the Child Jesus from the peril of His life, so no defend God's Holy Church from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity. Shield us ever under thy patronage, that, following thine example and strengthened by thy help, we may live a holy life, die a happy death, and attain to everlasting bliss in Heaven. Amen.

While we can see Obama dragging the United States to Marxism, few realize that Modernist Rome is doing the same thing through their own 'Pravda' L'Osservatore Romano. Guess the secret word and you could nominate a reprobate from the past to praise with revisionist thinking totally with the approval of the chief Hegelian in the Vatican who has always shared the same philosophy as Barack Obama and Karl Marx. Groucho? He was just a dirty old man. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey once again exposes the real dirty ones from Georg Sans to Gian Maria Vian to Ratzinger and the absolute absurdity of those who still insist on calling the church Ratzinger heads as 'Catholic.' It can't possibly be as he provides proof from true Popes of the past in his essay L'Osservatore Marxista

    The lastest flu scare is proven to be another fabricated crisis that Obama and his Maoist Marxist minions are using to strongarm America into ceding more rights, poisoning Americans that will lead to further enslavement and death camps. Hospitals are being forced to report every flu symptom as "Swine flu" aka H1N1 to bolster the numbers and to pad the pockets of pharmaceuticals and others who profit from the mishaps of others in true schadenfreude form. But that is, as Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey, points out, nothing but misdirection for those who fear for their life, because the real crisis is how many don't realize if they did die from the flu or anything else (and everyone reading this will die some day) that the only protection, the only insurance guaranteed to attain Heaven is being in the state of Sanctifying Grace. The only way to receive this "salvific shot" is to visit the infirmary of Divine Mercy in the Sacrament of Penance, administered by a true consecrated priest with the power to forgive sins. Any other way - this side of a perfect Act of Contrition - renders the rest plumb out of luck as Tom details in Oink

    The following 15 promises (the same number of Mysteries) were given by the Blessed Mother of God to Saint Dominic and Blessed Alan in the twelfth century. To every person who devoutly prays the Rosary, Our Lady promises:

  • 1. Whoever shall faithfully serve me by the recitation of the Rosary, shall receive signal graces.
  • 2. I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the Rosary.
  • 3. The Rosary shall be powerful armor against hell. It will destroy vice, decrease sin and defeat heresies.
  • 4. It will cause virtue and good works to flourish. It will obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God. It will withdraw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
  • 5. The soul which recommends itself to me by the recitation of the Rosary, shall not perish.
  • 6. Whoever shall recite the Rosary devoutly, applying himself to the consideration of its sacred mysteries, shall never be conquered by misfortune. God will not chastise him in His justice. He shall not perish by an unprovided death. If he be just, he shall remain in the grace of God and become worthy of eternal life.
  • 7. Whoever shall have a true devotion for the Rosary shall not die without the sacraments of the Church.
  • 8. Those who are faithful to recite the Rosary shall have, during their life and at their death, the light of God and the plentitude of His graces. At the moment of death, they shall participate in the merits of the saints in paradise.
  • 9. I shall deliver from Purgatory those who have been devoted to the Rosary.
  • 10. The faithful children of the Rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in Heaven.
  • 11. You shall obtain all you ask of me by the recitation of the Rosary.
  • 12. All those who propagate the holy Rosary shall be aided by me in their necessities.
  • 13. I have obtained from my Divine Son that all the advocates of the Rosary shall have for intercessors the entire celestial court during their life and at the hour of death.
  • 14. All who recite the Rosary are my sons and brothers of my only Son, Jesus Christ.
  • 15. Devotion of my Rosary is a great sign of predestination.
  • Stephen Grieve continues a multi-part series on proving the basis for a sede vacante stance based on holy Scripture itself; something that should stir the sensibilities of those who continue to elude the inevitability that a true pope would never and could never do what the conciliar leaders in Rome have done for the past 50 years. Basing his research on the roots of Holy Writ, he has titled his columns, "Our Scriptural Roots", all based on the divine Word. Steve continues his treatise on the meaning of St. Paul's words in 2 Thessalonians 2: 6-7, turning to some backgrounder on this by focusing on the fact the Petrine Primacy was known to more than a few from early on as he documents in the scriptures in citing St. Luke and St. Paul's own words in acknowledging Peter as the first among the apostles. This is important in realizing the syllogism of the restrainer/withholder (κατέχων) being the Primacy of Peter, ergo the Vicar of Christ - the Pope. Steve shows in a backgrounder on 2 Thessalonians 2: 6-7 that politics is nothing new and even in the early years of Christianity there were many disputes. St. Paul and the Papacy: The First Generation

    Griff Ruby points out that everyone should be concerned that it is the SSPX supposedly representing Traditional Catholics in 'theological discussions' that begin today in Modernist Rome. By and large, the SSPX consider any argument for Sede Vacante to be a false solution, yet neither in the book nor anywhere else, have they ever come up with a solution, going all the way back to Archbishop Lefebvre who vacillated greatly on this very issue. Yet, today, with Bishop Fellay more and more clamming up when it comes to speaking out for the truths and traditions of holy Mother Church, a solution is necessary for the sake of souls everywhere. Meanwhile the conciliar leaders from the top on down are taking souls further and further from the Roman Catholic Faith and closer to a syncretic New World Order while we all dicker over terms like Formal and Material. We can be formal or informal in taking the matter in hand and providing and proving the material available that makes it material, but if those who should see such are unwilling to understand or research further and connect all the dots, how then can sedevacantists make the point? It is a conundrum that Griff says needs to be addressed as he notes in his third installment Is it Too Complicated? .

    We continue this special feature provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. With the type so small in most bibles, we publish it here in larger type 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 Double of the First Class Solemnity of Christ the King Father Haydock provides all the proof necessary to illustrate the Sovereign Kingship of Christ over all in Heaven and on earth; something lost on most who inhabit this planet. St. Paul, in addressing the Colossians, gives an adept explanation of why Jesus is King once and for all and the Lord affirms this when confronted by Pilate for it confirms that he was betrayed by one and put to death by another. Our Lord asserts that His kingdom is not of this world and if we are to remain His loyal subjects we must unite with Him in suffering so that we may be worthy through His merits to enjoy eternal life in His kingdom as can be seen in Uncompromising Loyalty to our King

    Stephen hails from across the pond in England and has agreed to provide interesting articles that should stir the sensibilities of those who continue to elude the inevitability that a true pope would never and could never do what the conciliar leaders in Rome have done for the past 50 years. Steve continues a multi-part series on proving the basis for a sede vacante stance based on holy Scripture itself. Thus the title of his columns, "Our Scriptural Roots", all based on the divine Word; the same Word Who was made flesh, suffered and died for us, all prophesied in the Old Testament. Steve continues his treatise on the meaning of St. Paul's words in 2 Thessalonians 2: 6-7 and today focuses on identifying who the restrainer/withholder (κατέχων) truly is. He shows by deduction and logic that it could only be the Papacy and ergo the Pope. This makes perfect sense when you read his arguments and syllogism on how Sacred Scripture reveals that the Pope will remove himself from the Church and there will be no one in authority to abate the "Mystery of Iniquity" - the "man of lawlessness" who is commandeered by the devil himself as Steve presents the third installment of his series Towards a Scriptural Brief suggesting Sedevacantism with Identity of the (κατέχων) Restrainer/Withholder = (Πέτροσ) The Papacy/Pope

    Editor Michael Cain recalls how, as a child, one loved going to the circus, but things have definitely changed from those innocent times to the reality that is today's conciliar circus where the insignificant carnival barker William Levada is hawking tickets for admission into the big tent to see what next trick the ringmaster Ratzinger can pull off. Like circuses of old there are many death-defying acts, but in this bizarre bazaar (cirque 1964) these acts can greatly threaten souls and are definitely dangerous to your spiritual health. That warning seems to be ignored by many who only want to be entertained with no accountability for what they are participating in. Why, they've even expanded the seating to make room for the Anglicans, but don't worry they can still be Anglicans in every way and cling to the heresies of Henry VIII while still being considered part of the big tent through such circus lingo as "subsisting in." Yeah the clowns are aplenty in this rogue circus and they specialize in faux pas and pratfalls and making spectacles out of themselves while igoring Who's really important, Who should be featured front and center without clowns, without balloons, or any other trappings other than the solemnity of candles and reverence for the True Presence of Christ, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity, in their presence. Except He is not there and hasn't been since the sixties when, like Henry VIII, those men who thought they knew better than God, threw Him out and brought in an imposter as they have been trying to pull a rabbit out of the hat ever since in trying to convince Catholics that He's still here. No, this circus is not the dwelling place of our Sovereign King Jesus Christ. We hope Bishop Fellay will realize that before it's too late as Cain points out in his editorial Conciliar Circus

    Griff Ruby reminds all that one week from today on Octobere 26 a contingent from the SSPX will engage in theological discussions with Modernist Rome in a secluded room within the building known as the Palace of the Holy Office in the southeast area of Vatican City behind the south Colonnade of St. Peter's Square. Like any high-stakes poker game, it will be highly secretive with few knowing what cards the players are holding. But if Bishop Fellay plays his cards right from the onset on the Lumen Gentium issue, what he could accomplish would be the biggest boom for tradition since...well, Pope Pius XII. Griff offers eight key points that can most definitely call Ratzinger's bluff and trump whatever deck the Modernists might try to shuffle. If Fellay is sincere and not just opting for a red hat, it could be 'Jackpot!' for Tradition. It's a gamble most everyone is praying will turn into a sure thing for those intent on preserving the truths and traditions of holy Mother Church and wiping out 45 years of devastation in proving one cannot "subsist in" any kind of endeavor - be it a card game or theological discussion or the Church herself - if one is not a legitimate player as Griff identifies in his eight points in A Brief for the First Discussion

    Stephen Grieve, who hails from across the pond in England, continues a multi-part series on proving the basis for a sede vacante stance based on holy Scripture itself. Thus the title of his columns, "Our Scriptural Roots", all based on the divine Word; the same Word Who was made flesh, suffered and died for us, all prophesied in the Old Testament. With the Cross, Christ fulfilled all that was necessary for the Old Covenant and established the New Covenant with the ultimate Sacrifice on Calvary leading to His Resurrection and Ascension, leaving us His Spirit, the Third Person of the Holy Trinity to guide us with the Word and Tradition of the only Church Christ established on earth. St. Paul was filled with the Spirit and conveyed the truths of Christ and His Church in his epistles, specifically to the Hellenic regions where the root of his words are in Greek. Thus, in getting to the root of the meaning, Steve applies the application of both the Greek and Latin etimology to see what the Apostle of the Gentiles truly meant, specifically in 2 Thessalonians 2: 6-7. Last week he dealt with the restrainer/withholder; this week he delves into the meaning of έκ μέσου (phonetics: ek mesoo and in Latin: 'qui tenet nunc donec de medio fiat') in part two of his series "Towards a Scriptural Brief suggesting Sede Vacante" with the meaning of that Greek phrase of Out of the Midst

    In light of the passage of the so-called "hate crimes" bill by those intent on foisting unnatural laws on the lawful, Griff Ruby pulls no punches in addressing a sensitive subject that has spiraled out of control because of the proliferation of sin, unjustly justified by liberalism and a government out of control. Decent citizens, true Catholics, are shocked at how far society has sunk in its immoral miasma just in the last few decades where today evil is considered acceptable and proper while virtue is considered a vice that must be indoctrinated to modern times. Yes, thanks to liberalism, modernism, and satan-bar-the-door, it's become a topsy turvy world and another sign that we are in those times foretold in Sacred Scripture. Nowhere is this more prevalent than in the liberality of sexuality where God's natural and supernatural laws have been shunned for the beastiality of pure lust in every form and fashion. Little do these epicurean enemies of Christ consider St. Paul's words in 1 Corinthians 6: 9-10 and thus society today sinks deeper into the swamp of serious sin, assuredly heading for the abyss known as hell. What then are we to do? Follow them? Hardly. Rather, return to the prudence and continency of our forefathers who held proud the faith, living it fully in obedience to holy Mother Church as the Authority Christ appointed, and setting an example for this generation that we stand firm to tradition and will gladly show the side of decency in all things whether seen or unseen. And in these times when everything is seen, not only do people need to cover their bodies, preserving them untouched, but we must all have custody of the eyes and heart. Our faith compells us so as Griff explains in The Roots of Liberalism.

    Gary L. Morella presents a sobering piece on how the flickering light of faith has almost gone dim in a world shrouded in darkness and sin. To add our comments as a preface for his article, the Last Catholic out of the Vatican, turn out the lights because the most recent praise of an antichrist truly signifies Our Lady's prophecy at La Salette that "Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the antichrist" has been fulfilled. The Great Apostasy has been the portal for many antichrists to come forth. Just who the main one is can still be left to conjecture considering how much the world has been dumbed down to believe anything. Thanks to Vatican II, the current head in Vatican City is getting some stiff opposition from an arrogant man/beast who would be king of the world once he's dismantled the United States, which is only too evident. Ever since the early conciliar 'popes' began the sell-out practice of abdicating the Vicar of Christ's tri-regno responsibilities to souls by bowing to the UN as the answer for "social peace and justice", souls have been confused and this has only enabled the many antichrists to establish a foothold both in church and state. When will the world know the only peace possible that can come is through adherence to God's laws and submission to the only One Who can bring peace? That would be the only Light of the world: Jesus Christ. When will people learn? When it's too late? Gary warns of the consequences in his article Darkness rules the roost as Obama struts

    What? you say, how can this be? Read the First Epistle of St. John 2: 15-29 and you shall see whereof this headline speaks truth and then read Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey's latest pertinent pieces at in which he details how the conciliarists bend over backward to compliment those very men out to destroy all that Christ taught and established on earth. This is especially evident in the reaction of the radical liberal theologists in congratulating one Barack Hussein Obama for being awarded the leftist award known as the Nobel Prize, not to be confused with a Noble Prize which would be believing in Christ and carrying out what He commanded. Tom weighs in on the similarity of how today's scenario is sadly not stranger than fiction for fiction has proven true as he equates the classic (read: an excellent novel, literally and literature-wise) Lord of the World by Msgr. Robert Hugh Benson, a Catholic British author and priest at the turn of the century depicting a future apocalyptic armageddon in the mideast in a resistance effort against a One World Order in the mode of George Orwell's 1984. Obama's Marxist orientation and desire to be President of the World, aided by the reception of the now besmirched and worthless (other than the monetary value) Nobel 'Peace' Prize is a joke, but not one we should be laughing at, considering the consequences which make Benson a prophet a century or so later. Did the monsignor, like Pope Leo XIII, have a vision of what is to come, what for us is quite near? Tom lays out the signs in his three articles

    Stephen Grieve hails from across the pond in England and has agreed to provide interesting articles that should stir the sensibilities of those who continue to elude the inevitability that a true pope would never and could never do what the conciliar leaders in Rome have done for the past 50 years. Stephen begins today a multi-part series on proving the basis for a sede vacante stance based on holy Scripture itself. Hard to argue with the divine Word. In his first installment he introduces the first passage that indicates such in 2 Thessalonians 2: 6-7 in which he points to the Greek root of the word for 'withholder' as it is in the Douay-Rheims version and 'restrainer' as it is in the newer versions as κατέχων. Should we be surprised considering Greek was the language of the Thessalonians and which Paul was well versed in? In his study, Stephen outlines today his thesis and begins to eliminate possibilities that could not refer to the κατέχων (o Katechon) as he narrows it down to show that the 'absence' of the 'withholder' or 'restrainer' ultimately refers to the Papacy. He explains in part one of his series "Towards a Scriptural Brief suggesting Sede Vacante" with Introduction to an Examination of 2 Thessalonians 2: 6-7

    The Feast of the Holy Rosary is an occasion to bring you inspiration from the venerated Benedictine Abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger for, sadly, too many are unaware of the tremendous power of the heavenly weapon bestowed on St. Dominic Gusman for the specific purpose of putting down heresies. Since that time the Rosary has proven to be the ultimate artillery to turn back the enemy from Lepanto to Viena to countless other examples, a few of which Abbe Gueranger treats in his short essay on the Feast of the Holy Rosary which still in his time was celebrated on the First Sunday of October, but in 1913 His Holiness Pope St. Pius X set the Double of the Second Class feast for October 7, the date of the victory at Lepanto and superseding the previous feast of Our Lady of Victory. Gueranger shows how the Church in her wisdom has mapped out the liturgical year in such perfect fashion which he explained his his marvelous fifteen volume masterpiece The Liturgical Year in Volume 14, pages 295-300 which we bring you here in The Lasting Magnificence, Grace, and Power of the Holy Rosary

    Griff Ruby files his second installment - in one of several series he is currently running - in which he addresses the fact that one of the problems of establishing unity within the sedevacantist movement and making a difference with strength in number for the sake of saving souls is the division of Absolute Sedevacantists and Cassiciacum Sedevacantists; the latter consisting of those who believe in the Formaliter/Materialiter status of the man who sits on the Throne of Peter. Griff dissects the arguments raised by the Society in which they have inadvertently opened their own Pandora's Box considering their giving credence to the very real possibility that both sede camps have points that not only outweigh the compromising position of the SSPX, but also prove the Society is headed down the wrong leading to the conciliar cul-de-sac that provides no way out. Such a stance has led to the inevitable trap they currently find themselves in where we see mass defections as Fellay's farrago has fed mass confusion within its own ranks. Every step he takes is like quicksand, sinking him and the Society deeper. The only escape to firm footing is to embrace sedevacantism. Evidently the SSPX will have to learn the hard way before waking up to that fact. And the position of Sede Vacante itself will need to be more embraceable by being more consistent and complete within itself as Griff explains in And Now, the Other Kind of Sedevacantist .

      The feast of the Holy Angels reminded us that our Guardian Angels are there to help us in everything we do. That includes when you can't physically get to Holy Mass, such as for those who cannot attend Holy Mass on a daily basis, or even on Sundays because quite possibly a Traditional Latin Mass is not near. You can always send your Angel to the Holy Sacrifice on your behalf in order to join the untold choirs of Angels adoring Christ come down upon the altar.

        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 in our mission for saving souls?
