As much as we detest bringing up needing funds, especially when such commodity is so rare today, it is necessary in order to continue this apostolate. Very necessary. It is the nature of non-profit organizations and few suffer the lack of generous donations than traditional Catholic ones because there are so sadly, so few who still believe in the Truths and Traditions of holy Mother Church, so invasive has Vatican II been in their indoctrination and destruction of the true Faith. In order to maintain what we have and be able to expand, as well as sustain us in fulfilling Christ's charge to preach the Gospel to all nations and to teach them to observe all things that He commanded, we need to be able to budget. That is very difficult when we have no idea what contributions might be coming in. In the tradition of tithing and to prevent subscription costs to the reader, we ask if you would be willing to pledge a monthly donation. In order to do this we have established the various apostolic levels that are affordable to your income in assisting us in reaching more souls, in converting them to the true Faith so eclipsed in today's world. Each apostle is a level of giving that you can choose. We've selected the order of apostles in the same order first identified in St. Matthew 10: 2-4. If you truly care and seek the conversion of your fellow man, if you truly believe the pre-Vatican II Catholic Church is the true Church and we must make that known to the world, if you truly believe in what we are doing with The DailyCatholic and want to help keep this publication on line, then we ask your generosity and cooperation in perpetuating the true Faith by helping us continue this apostolate of reaching all nations. Therefore, we ask you to see ...In Their Footsteps

        With this edition we present our Annual Mid-Summer Hiatus features, highlighted by the 100th Anniversary of Pope Saint Pius X's landmark mandatory Oath Against Modernism that should convince all of the sedevacantist position that Fr. Joseph Ratzinger gravely violated his Sacred Oath and abdicated any authority long before he was elected by the conciliar conclave, just as his conciliar predecessors Angelo Roncalli, Giovanni Montini, Luciani Albino and Karol Wojtyla also deviated from the faith in violating their vow to God when they took that very Oath. Montini especially incurred the wrath of Almighty God and the blessed Apostles Peter and Paul when he negated both the Oath and the Prayer to St. Michael, thus opening the door wide for satan to slither in and lay a nest of vipers that now own the Vatican lock and stock and snakepit. 60 years ago on August 12 His Holiness Pope Pius XII also tried to stave off the onrushing Modernist rebellion by issuing his encyclical Humani Generis on the dire warning to Catholics over the false opinions and errors threatening to undermine the holy Faith.

       The Blessed Mother of God, whose Assumption into Heaven is the highlight of this month dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, is deeply saddened by the outrages, sacrileges and indifference against her divine Son Jesus Christ and the offenses against her as well, as should every single Catholic be outraged and seek to make reparation to restore the Church by driving the serpents and wolves in sheep's clothing out. That is done by fleeing the conciliar lodges and returning to worshipping God exclusively by assisting at the Traditional Latin Mass, not to be confused with the seditious Motu Mess. John Gregory features a meditation on the Fourth Glorious Mystery of the Assumption based on Pope Pius XII's magnificent encyclical Munificentissimus Deus which declared the Dogma of the Assumption. The renowned Benedictine Abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger provides a short inspiration in placing the Dormition of the Blessed Virgin in such a beautiful light. In addition we provide devotions to Our Lady with the Novena in preparation for the Assumption which begins on the Feast of the Transfiguration up through the Vigil of the Assumption. Just prior to that we begin the Novena to Saint Philomena from August 3 through her forgotten feast on August 11. And, of course, all through the month there is devotion to the Immaculate Heart with the Litany of the Immaculate Heart of Mary

       In keeping with emphasizing devotions and inspiration for this Mid-Summer edition, we publish the Haydock Commentary for the Epistle and Gospel compiled by John Gregory for each Sunday. We also provide a thought-provoking, soul-searching sermon by the holy Cure of Ars, Saint Jean Marie Baptiste Vianney on his August 9th feast that should prompt all of us to turn up the heat on our spiritual lives after we have read and digested On the Lukewarmness of Souls. This month we celebrate the feasts of three Doctors of the Church including Saint Alphonsus Liguori, Saint Bernard of Clairvaux and Saint Augustine. In fact, each week of August is packed with notable saints whom we can emulate and ask intercession for and you can see this in our August Liturgical Calendar. Each possessed the fullness of the Theological Virtues expressing not only the essence of Faith, Hope and Charity but also heroic supernatural virtue in addition to the Gifts and Fruits of the Holy Ghost which we treat in Step Eleven of this edition's installment of Catholicism Made Simple.

       Again we urge you to click the Rosary banner below for the Seventh through Eleventh Saturdays in the 15-week Rosary Crusade organized by Bishop Robert McKenna, O.P. to do our part for the salvation of souls by bringing souls to the true Catholic Faith and Sacraments through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary in praying for the welfare of our country, and for our own special intentions as we all strive for holiness in our role as members of the Church Militant.

       Keeping the above all in mind in this month of the Immaculate Heart, let us remember Christ's words in St. Matthew 7: 18-20, "A good tree cannot yield bad fruit, neither can a bad tree yield good fruit. Every tree that yieldeth not good fruit, shall be cut down, and shall be cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them." From Our Lord's Own words we know that even when one wades through Ecclesiastical law, one realizes something is truly rotten in Rome and the only answer is it is a bad tree that has produced no good fruit for 50 years whereas the true Catholic Church is a good tree that continues to produce good fruit, albeit hidden from most. We have brought this home quite well in our special Third Anniversary Commiseration of the Motu Mess on these pages last month. All must realize the conciliar church is a bad tree, and therefore its destiny is inevitable: the conflagration of conciliarism. Praise the Lord and pass the matches.

       Finally, we ask your prayers for our dear friend Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey who is currently undergoing tests for various medical problems that have afflicted him over the years and sapped his strength, forcing him to curtail the ambitious schedule he has maintained for so long in producing such thought-provoking documented essays that every Catholic should read if they want to know the why, what, who, where, when and how the Great Apostasy gained such a devastating grip on holy Mother Church and what Catholics need to do to restore Christ's true Church. As we have said over our long relationship with Tom, we believe he is the most prolific Catholic writer alive today. His articles prove that point for few have the grasp of papal decrees that he has been able to apply to prove the conciliar church is not Catholic, but rather, in the term he coined, the counterfeit church of conciliarism. Please keep him and his lovely wife Sharon and their daughter Lucy in your prayers. For more on Tom's condition and status, see A Brief Note. We remind you also of our Prayers for the Sick and Prayers for the Dearly Departed

    Note: While The DailyCatholic is on Mid-Summer Hiatus, the News and Commentaries will not be updated until September. Therefore we refer you to the links at the top of the page for trusted sources and our News & Information page.

  • What Commandments? Part One Few seem to realize what Christ meant when He said, "If you love Me, keep My Commandments." The very fact that few today do, indicates they do not love God and never has it been more evident than the barbaric Modernists and Marxists who populate and lead both church and state today. What they fail to realize is that God can only take so much before they really make Him angry, and He's got to be pretty close to boiling mad the way they have so cavalerily shoved Him aside and indoctrinated others to disobey His Commandments. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 7-31

  • Revolutions Have Consequences Part Two Even traditional Catholics need to be on their guard at all times for one might be surprised how much even the most devout have adapted to the modern style of living and fallen into the trap of styles, fashions and habits. We all need to check ourselves and do a self examination to guard against the fallout of the Revolution that has and can further taint even those who think they're safe. We must remember that what Christ established cannot change with the times and it is time all took that to note before time passes us by. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 7-26

  • An Interview With Father Joven SolimanIn a follow-up to a feature in the Four Marks, Tom conducted an interview with former Society priest Fr. Joven Soliman who has been given the grace to realize the reality and inevitability of sedevacantism and he shares his discovery and what is happening within the SSPX as more and more begin to open their eyes and receive the grace to see. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 7-25

  • Revolutions Have Consequences Part One Ah, the fruits of the Protestant Reformation and the French Revolution. None you say? Bitter you say? You would be right. Yet, the revolutionaries of every stripe whether Communist or Apostate still do not get it. They seem outraged when others seek equal footing even though those who were part of the rebellion earlier sought the same things, both based on rebellion against God and the only Church He established on earth. The conciliarists have made their own bed, bedbugs and all in acknowledging false religions and false regimes and now they're a bit uneasy lying in that same bed, but they're not a bit concerned about lying. Typical of revolutionaries for the first revolutionary is still stirring up resentment. That would be lucifer, the father of lies, who has many allies in today's revolutionaries in both church and state. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 7-23

  • Memo to Lindsey Graham No, Tom is not writing a letter to that other Lindsay, but to the RINO from South Carolina for his blatant disregard for principles and the natural law. Tom apologizes to no one for his totally Catholic tone in getting down to the bare bones about Obama's selection of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan and her obvious pro-abortion, pro-perversion progressivist stance that she's tried to hide, but her record speaks otherwise. The problem is that politicians don't want to hear the truth, but as Tom points out, if we as Catholics are not willing to stand up for the tenets of our Faith and speak the truth boldly without fear, then we might as well fold up our tents for we will have failed Christ and His true Church. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 7-21

  • One of Those "Is it Really Necessary to Write This Again?" Articles The more the conciliar wags open their mouths, the more they dig their graves deeper and nowhere is that more evident than in Walter Kasper and now his secretary 'bishop' Brian Ferrell (no replacement to the clown Will Ferrell, though they are both bozos), who no doubt will be kept on by replacement 'bishop' Kurt Koch, dug deeper by misidentifying both history and Catholic truth. But then, what's new in this 'can't we all just get along and your religion is as good as mine' mindset of the Modernists? Their twist on the Petrine Primacy is definitely skewered and it all traces back to the man doing the skewering: one Joseph Ratzinger from his heydays at Vatican II as a periti on. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 7-19

  • More evidence of the Corruption in the Conciliar church As we have said, while it is not the policy of The DailyCatholic to keep track of the daily doings of the corrupt counterfeit church of conciliarism, Traditio is one of the best in highlighting the headlines of the crimes and incriminations against these charlatans as pointed out again this past week in showing why the Dutch really lost the World Cup since they long ago lost the faith; how the vice is tightening around the neck of one being fitted for a mill-stone: one Godfried Danneels for his complicity and scandalous cover-ups; and the pot calling the kettle black with the conciliar potentates in Rome to sit in judgment of the Medjugorje Menagerie for "secrets." Here's a hint: there are no secrets. It's all part of the con just as Modernist Rome cons the vast majority day in and day out. That surely is no secret. Traditio 7-20

  • Chastisements Under Which We Must Save Our Souls Part Three Concluding his short series, Tom points out that no matter where you turn, the naturalists of both church and state have no clue how to stave off God's chastisement because they not only insist on separating the two, but separating themselves from God as well. Do you think they realize they're to blame for their apostasy? Do you think they really care about those they are entrusted to protect? Not on your life. The very fact we have not had a true Pope in 50 years is evidence of God withdrawing His grace and protection and why this time of chastisement brings with it the fact that the Chair is empty (sede vacante). Argue against it if you will, but you will lose for the Church can never teach consistent error. We've had nothing but fallacies and heresies over the past five decades. True Catholics rest their case, clinging to their Brown Scapulars as the chastisement intensifies. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 7-16

  • Chastisements Under Which We Must Save Our Souls Part Two Perversity rules the day both in the secular sector and the conciliar climes where cardinals are fingered for their own perversion, where presbyters are appointed to teach catechism while living and promoting the most vile of acts, where the vapid viper in papal cloth slithers away from responsibility, hounded though he may be by a naturalist foe intent on bringing down the Church. The conciliarists have done a thorough job of that. Think if the sedevacantists didn't resist, where we'd be. Much worse off. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 7-14

  • Chastisements Under Which We Must Save Our Souls Part One In the first installment, Tom points to the insanity of trusting in naturalists for that is how we got into the mess we're in with the dictator we have as president and it is a chastisement duly deserved because we haven't heeded Heaven's request for Consecration of Russia to Mary's Immaculate Heart, nor have we prayed or made reparation. Therefore, as Our Lady showed to the children at the Cova, hell is very real. How many have ended up there or will land there because they have abandoned God and His Commandments? We have done this to ourselves and only prayer and repentance will save us. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 7-13

  • Further Proof of the Corruption in the Conciliar church While it is not the policy of The DailyCatholic to keep track of the daily doings of the corrupt counterfeit church of conciliarism, Traditio is one of the best in documenting the crimes and incriminations against these charlatans as pointed out just this past week in chronicling the on-going investigation of a V2 cardinal in Belgium, the appointment of a pro-abort, pro-sodomite auxiliary in San Fransicko, the tip of the iceberg discovery that pilfering from the collection plate is rampant in conciliar ranks by the wolves in sheeps' clothing, and the appointment by the new 'bishop' of Quebec of the notorious pervert male prostitute presbyter to train others in catechism from the bishop's own cathedral, to murder in China's conciliar lodge, and the secular progressivist 'Gray Lady' hounding another progressivist: Ratzinger and his record. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black! Truly these are the times that try and fry men's souls. Traditio 7-14

  • Naturalism's Boomerang Just as no judge or legislation could ever change the law of gravity, so also no judge or legislation can ever change moral laws. What God has put together, let no man put asunder. That's what Christ mandated, but do you think the naturalists care? Not on your life and that is the crux of the controversy over DOMA. Dumb is their problem for they have not wised up to realize they don't answer to anyone but their King if only they would recognize Him as their Sovereign King. If so we could all do away with most of the idiotic laws. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 7-11

  • Not An Ecumenist Among Them Thanks to the Calvinist Cancer the noble martyrs of England - most specifically Sts. Thomas More and Bishop John Fisher, as well as Fr. Edmund Campion and the Pilgrimage of Grace - have almost been forgotten; those very brave souls who stood against the Calvinist permeation of England that so infected the Tudor reign and turned Catholic England into an apostate isle ever since. The counterfeit church of conciliarism is no better in even giving credence to Calvinism, which they do. Should we be surprised? They're all ecumaniacs. Not so Thomas More, Bishop Fisher et alii for they kept the Faith unlike the feckless leaders of Modernist Rome over the last 40 years or so. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 7-9

  • As New Dog and Pony Shows Come to Town, Part Four In the final installment of his four part series, Tom points out that no matter what good any of the conciliar bishops or so-called Catholic politicians might do, if they have subscribed to the ethos of falsehood, sacrilege and apostasy, there can never be any good fruits for the origin is a bad tree and as we see in Sunday's Gospel, a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 7-7

  • As New Dog and Pony Shows Come to Town, Part Three We can rail at the pro-abort supposedly 'Catholic' politicians all we want, but as has been proven it has done no good for it is the conciliar bishops who have enabled them to veer from the faith, going all the way back to Cardinals Cooke and Cushing, the real culprits in allowing the moral compass to be totally skewered. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 7-6

  • As New Dog and Pony Shows Come to Town, Part Two Nowhere is the tragedy of the Motu Mess more evident than in the fallout of the SSPX for Fellay was one who bought the spider's lies and now is caught in the web. Numerous good priests have either left or been expelled, including the most recent one Fr. Juan Turco, all because of the silence of the Superior of the Society and his heavy-handedness in pleasing Ratzinger rather than Christ. Sadly, the tail is wagging the dog in this dog and pony show. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 7-4

  • As New Dog and Pony Shows Come to Town, Part One Misdirection. Diversion. You name it, Obama is doing it and the people are being cooked like the boiled frog for Obama and his handlers' agenda is diametrically opposed to all that Christ and His Church stand for. The problem is we have done it to ourselves by subscribing to naturalism and, in our increasingly slothful ways of a decaying nation, depending on conveniences and 'sound bites' while starving ourselves of the nutrients of Truth because we have played the game to get along while greatly offending our Lord and His Blessed Mother by subscribing to the American way. Thank you, Vatican II for greatly aiding this demise. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 7-2

  • Touchy, Touchy The conciliar conmen think they are above the law and when the law closes in, they circle the wagons. The problem is this time the slings and arrows are deserved and will find their mark because they have made friends with mammon and we all know what that means. The depravity of Danneels and his pornographic catechism is shocking, but then considering what he stands for, should we be surprised? It looks like the Belgian police knew what they were doing. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 6-30

  • Live By Separation of Church and State? Die By Separation of Church and State Benedict XVI is learning you can't have your cake and eat it too. In fact, he's eating a lot more than cake these days, but rather the bitter and rotten meat of crow for his hypocrisy that is coming back to haunt him for what is good for the goose is also good for the gander and if that is not enough cliches, then read on for the conciLIARS have made and deserve the mess they're in for they have painted themselves into a corpulent corner. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 6-28

  • Belgium Police Raid Archdiocese and Cardinal's Files While the conciliar church has stalled for decades, finally the authorities have taken action. Fed up with the sandbagging, Belgium Police raided the offices of the Archdiocese of Brussels, confiscating computers and files as well as the files of the notorious Modernist prelate Cardinal Godfried Danneels, one of the most progressive of the potentates who was a strong proponent of Vatican II and sacking the Immemorial Mass of All Ages. The reason the police acted when they did was the fear that conciliar authorities were destroying evidence. So what else is new. Traditio 6-28

  • Fearing to Offend Men Rather Than God St. Paul said it so clearly in Galatians 1: 8-10, but the clueless conciliarists still don't get it or refuse to get it. What else would explain the condoning of a sodomite travesty and even participation? Considering the recent rash of scandals surging to the surface and the cover-ups being uncovered that so implicates Ratzinger and his predecessor, maybe there's a reason for protecting pedophiles: They're all in cahoots. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 6-27

  • King George III Is Looking Pretty Good These Days Considering where the Obama Administration is taking America, the "tyranny" of King George III pales in comparison. Even the Tea Parties can't seem to phase the demonic bent this Marxist regime is intent on carrying out. But then we've done it to ourselves by subscribing to naturalist statism and veering far from God. We do indeed sow what we reap. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 6-25

  • Boy! If Only The "Pope" Knew The title should tell you all you need to know because we all know the conciliar 'popes' know exactly what they're doing, but that canard has been the trump card for the conciliar cabal to capture so many. Delay and destroy. When will people wake up and realize they're being conned by the conciLIARS? We know when. When the grace is given to take the blinders from their eyes and hearts. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 6-19

    Until then you'll have the kind of blatant corruption of the faith you can find this week documented on Traditio from Ratzinger reinstating a sexual predator as the shepherd in sheep's clothing despite the howling protests of the Polish people to a clown mess in the Lateran. No matter where you look it truly is Diabolic Disorientation.

  • Lenin Lives! with his own spot on Larry King The media is the biggest conductor of misinformation and disinformation and downright deception. Such useful liberal idiots as Jesse Ventura and Oliver Stone serve as the usual suspects in trolling their communist trash on such trash shows as 'Larry King Live' who doesn't seem to have a clue to what is going on in this country. But then is that not the modus operandi of the lamestream media in indoctrinating Obamunism? Toby Westerman 6-18

  • Transparently Power Hungry You've heard the term, oil is thicker than water and never was that truer than what we see polluting the Gulf over the past two months. But what is thicker is the arrogant audacity of the joker in the White House who is trying to capitalize on a catastrophe for political power. That is the lowest, but then what do you expect from a man who is not a man but the devil in disguise? Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 6-17

  • Much More Than Meets The Eye America's been so dumbed down over the decades and some of the tactics have been through subliminal advertising to boil the frog, so to speak. But God has ways of communicating and sending signs and one that will truly amaze you has to do with the late Michael Davies. Could it be a coincidence or a Godincidence. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 6-15

  • No Room In The Big Tent for Catholics Politics and pandering have become a pandora's box and that is never more evident than in parades put on by perverts who publically boast of one of the most vile sins that cries to Heaven for vengeance. No true Catholic can have anything to do with such travesties and affronts to God. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey 6-15

  • Judge Orders Mahony Deposition to be made Public After years of wrangling, it just might be possible that justice will be served with the decision by a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge to release the sworn testimony (some 600 pages, no less) of one Roger Thug Mahony given as late as this January in trying to fend off the incarcerated whistleblower pedophile Michael Baker, now turned state's evidence. When the heat was turned up in Boston and San Fransicko, Modernist Rome provided the offending prelates Law and Levada sanctuary, but if Ratzinger tried that now with Roger the Dodger, Benny's goose would be truly cooked. Let us pray that Mahony's days as the most corrupt of the conciliar con artists are numbered. Traditio 6-16

  • Apologies are empty when no action is ever taken If Joseph Ratzinger were an honest man, if he were really sincere in his faux and very insulting apology in St. Peter's Square, he would immediately defrock over half of his bishops and a third of the world's presbyters beginning with Roger Thug Mahony of Lost Angeles as well as the man considered the "Hannibal Lector of Pedophiles" Oliver O'Grady and then Benedict would resign in disgrace for the failed policies of conciliarism that have caused the loss of countless millions and millions and millions of souls. But this apostate imposter won't and that is the greatest tragedy in a world filled with tragedy today where more documentation shows JP2 accepted bribe money to condone sin by the founder of the Legionairres of Christ and several of its members while the counterfeit church of conciliarism seeks to eliminate the one priest whose sermons they could all learn from, St. Jean Marie Vianney, the unyielding, holy Cure of Ars. Traditio 6-13 through 15

       Traditio recently alerted readers that "One press that used to be considered 'traditional' was sold out a couple of years ago to a Protestant conglomerate, but still calls itself 'traditional,' even though its publications now fully support the Protestant Novus Ordo. That press that published Fr. James Wathen's 1971 seminal work against the validity of the Novus Ordo, The Great Sacrilege, has pulled the book from its list because, now under its Protestant directors, it is no longer permitted to state that 'the New Mass [sic] is illegal, immoral, and not Catholic.' The once-courageous press can no longer publish a book that it now claims, under its new Protestant management, 'defames the [New]church and calls its approved form of the mass [sic] an invalid sacrilege.' The press now specifically rejects the truth that the Traditional Latin Mass "is the 'only' and 'true' Mass and that the Novus Ordo is invalid or illicit."

       The Fathers are, of course, referring to TAN Books. But have no fear. We are pleased to remind all readers that the late Fr. Wathen graciously gave The DailyCatholic permission in September 2001 to publish the entire book online so that it could be read by everyone, no matter the censorship by the counterfeit church of conciliarism. Thus, you can read his entire masterful work that has withstood the test of 40 years. No one has been able to refute the truth of his words in The Great Sacrilege

  • In these times when Modernism has metastasized souls, we need to go back to the basics laid out by Pope St. Pius X and urge the "resist-yet-recognize" folks to compare and then decide with Pius and all the true Popes as well as the infallible, perennial Magisterium of the Church: Modernism is heresy; Ratzinger, and those before him-Wojtyla, Luciani, Montini and Roncalli - all Modernists. Ergo, they are all heretics and could not be true popes! Period!

    On Wednesday, September 1 we commemorate the 100th anniversary of His Holiness Pope Saint Pius X issuing a seemingly failsafe mandate to prevent Modernism and other heresies from permeating holy Mother Church with his landmark "Oath Against Modernism". Tragically, as we know few calculated on how many insincere and blasphemous, sacrilegious priests would break that vow to God and rise in office through the ranks to join the enemy of Christ in their attempt to destroy His Church. St. Pius and his successors did not count on the minions forming in the fifth column that would work to eliminate this most necessary, vital Oath. Despite all the precautions this saintly pope did take, it shows just how powerful the devil can be. Remember also, dear friends, that one Joseph Ratzinger took this very oath several times in his rise through the orders to the priesthoood with other conciliar Modernists, beginning with Giovanni Montini, who did away with, thus exposing himself and all others who complied as enemies of God for their rejection of Catholic truth and tradition. Read this short oath for yourself and see for yourself. Oath Against Modernism

    On Friday we celebrate St. Pius X's Feast of the holy Pontiff Pope Saint Pius X who was such a crusader against Modernism, the "synthesis of all heresies." Three years ago we commemorated the centennial anniversary of two of his landmark papal decrees warning the faithful of the dangers of this insidious heresy. Lamentabili Sane on July 3 and on September 8 his landmark encyclical Pascendi Dominic Gregis against Modernism, that would be reinforced three years with the mandatory Oath. In recalling St. Pius X's life and studying his encyclicals and papal decrees, it is as if he had seen ahead of time what would occur in his beloved Church and so tried to warn the faithful and the hierarchy. In honor of the legacy of this saintly Pontiff, we present a detailed biography of the man the kind of shepherd so sorely missing today; We can only hope and pray that someday, in God's time, He will lift up a true shepherd devoted to upholding the Apostolic Traditions as St. Pius X was and who did all in his power to safeguard the Sacred Deposit of the Faith For more about this cardinal from northern Italy, see The Story of St. Pius X

    The holy Doctor of the Church Saint Alphonsus Liguori was born near Naples and received a law doctorate in his teens. He had the world as his oyster and chose to cast his net into the sea in being a fisher of men. He founded an order dedicated to redeeming souls and he wrote volumes during a time when the enlightenment was already threatening the foundations of the Church. He vowed never to waste a moment and never did. He was the outstanding moral theologian who held the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as the greatest gift any Catholic could partake in. He foretold the very crisis the Church is suffering today when he prophesied, "The devil has always attempted, by means of the heretics, to deprive the world of the Mass, making them precursors of the antichrist, who, before anything else, will try to abolish and will actually abolish the Holy Sacrament of the altar, as a punishment for the sins of men, according to the prediction of Daniel 'And strength was given him against the continual sacrificer'." Alphonsus, through a thorough knowledge of the Faith, the cavalier attitude already permeating the Church and through messages he himself received from Heaven, knew that day would come when, just as Our Lord foretold in Matthew 24: 15, the "abomination of desolation" would occur. He was truly the Keeper of the Moral Compass

    August 20 is the Double Feast of the holy Abbot and Doctor of the Church Saint Bernard of Clairvaux. He was a truly dedicated man who turned his back on the world and took over 30 men with him to devote their lives to God. He built monasteries throughout western Europe and was the confidante of popes and kings, beggars and paupers. He was the main man in preaching the purpose of the Crusade to recover the holy land where Our Lord and Savior walked. Bernard traversed the continent stirring men through prayer and reason, never compromising the Truths and Traditions. He was responsible for the revival of the Cistercian Order. This holy and mystic Abbot from France composed one of the most beautiful prayers ever created the Memorare out of thorought devotion Our Lady . He was devoted heart and soul to his Crucified Lord and Savior Jesus Christ . The holy Abbot of Clairvaux received many visions and messages through private revelation, one of which was his zeal to help the suffering Christ so that he offered to help Him bear the terrible suffering of the cross. Christ comforted Bernard and inspired him to carry His word and faith to all parts of Europe and the mideast, entreating the saint to defend the true pontiff Pope Innocent II as opposed to the antipope Anaclete II. For more on this great saint God raised up in the middle ages, see Crusading Hammer of Heretics

    Saint Augustine, whom we celebrate on August 28 is one of the greatest Doctors of the Church, one of the greatest single intellects ever. Like the Apostle Saint Paul, he began as a notorious sinner, embracing heresy after heresy, but when grace finally touched him through the prayer and reparation of others, this Saul turned into a Paul and his cries for truth were mostly heard and responded to in Heaven by the relentless efforts and graces of his loving, persevering mother Saint Monica and his mentor, the Bishop of Milan, the holy Doctor of the Church Saint Ambrose, who is credited with the conversion of this man from Hippo. Sadly today neither Augustine, his mother Monica or Ambrose or all the saints who passed through this veil of tears over the centuries, would recognize the counterfeit church of conciliarism as Catholic. They would have denounced from the beginning the aggiornamento and "new springtime" as heretical and extremely harmful to souls. It was the holy Augustine, born in Tagaste, Africa who authored "City of God" - the magnificent opus on Christian philosophy - as well as his very popular work "Confessions" which, in his time and over the centuries, has drawn countless souls to the Faith. Other than the Angelic Doctor Saint Thomas Aquinas, no one has had more influence on Western Culture in the Church than Saint Augustine, The Doctor of Grace

    John Gregory has provided inspiring, thought-provoking meditations for the Joyful, Sorrowful and Glorious Mysteries of the Our Lady's Holy Rosary first bestowed to Saint Dominic early in the thirteenth century. Since then her holy psalter has served as the most powerful weapon outside the true Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, we could wield against the world, the flesh, and the devil. For the Fourth Glorious Mystery reflection John focuses on His Holiness Pope Pius XII's decree in proclaiming the Dogma of the Assumption on November 1, 1950 with his encyclical Munificentissimus Deus. John takes this papal decree and divides it with the first part applying to the Fourth Mystery of the Rosary on the Assumption of Our Lady into Heaven. The belief of this dogmatic fact was long held by the Magisterium of the Church from the very time of the Blessed Mother being lifted up into Heaven, yet never fully proclaimed as a definitive Dogma until His Holiness Pius XII, in complete harmony with all the authentic bishops of the Church, decreed it. This inspiring papal decree is the compendium of an ideal meditation on the Fourth Glorious Mystery. In honor of this month of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, he shares his reflection on The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven

    "What in this dawn before which the brightest constellations pale? Laurence, who has been shining in the August heavens as an incomparable star, is well nigh eclipsed and becomes but the humble satellite of the Queen of Saints, whose triumph is preparing beyond the clouds. Mary stayed on earth after her Son's Ascension, in order to give birth to His Church; but she could not remain for ever in exile. Yet she was not to take her flight to Heaven until this new fruit of her maternity had acquired the growth and strength which it belongs to a mother to give. How sweet to the Church was this dependence! - a privilege given to her members by our Lord in imitation of Himself. As we saw at Christmas-tme, the God-Man carried first in the arms of His Mother, gathering His strength and nourishing His life at her virginal breast; so the mystical body of the Man-God, the Holy Church, received, in its first years, the same care from Mary as the divine Child our Emmanuel. As Joseph heretofore at Nazareth, Peter was now ruling the house of God; but our Lady was none the less to the assembly of the faithful the source of life in the spiritual order, as she had been to Jesus in His Humanity. On the day of Pentecost the Holy Ghost and every one of His gifts rested first upon her in all fulness; every grace bestowed on the privileged dwellers in the cenacle was given more eminently and more abundantly to her. The sacred stream of the river maketh the city of God joyful, because first of all the Most High has sanctified His Own tabernacle, made her the the well of living waters, which run with a strong stream from Libanus...The Spouse, the Church on earth, the Church in Heaven, all were waiting for her, who had tended the vine and strengthened its roots, to utter a word such as that which had heretofore brought down the Spouse to earth. But today Heaven, not earth, was to be the gainer. 'Flee away, O my Beloved' It was the voice of Mary about to follow the fragrant footsteps of the Lord her Son up to the eternal mountains whither her own perfumes had preceded her." Dom Prosper Gueranger, The Liturgical Year, The Vigil of the Assumption, pages 347-8, 350-51.

    The feast of St. Clare is the 60th Anniversary of His Holiness Pope Pius XII's Encyclical Humani Generis issued on August 12, 1950 in which he warned Catholics of the false opinions and errors threatening to undermine the holy Faith. A few months later on November 1 His Holiness would declare the Dogma of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, body and soul into Heaven with his encyclical Munificentissimus Deus. It would be the Last Infallible Proclamation from the Seat of Peter. Since that time nothing has been spoken ex cathedra. We can see how those in charge today totally ignored his sage words of Humani Generis and furiously forged ahead with their agendas so that when His Holiness passed away on October 9, 1958, all hell would break loose and did with the Modernists gaining control and eclipsing the very Church Christ established on earth with a counterfeit ape that has done everything in its power to destroy the Truths and Traditions of holy Mother Church with the origins of aggiornamento in aiding the prince of the world to gain countless souls for God's chief adversary, causing Heaven to weep how the wolves in sheep's clothing have totally pulled the wool over the flocks' eyes as Papa Pacelli had warned in his encyclical Humani Generis

    n honor of the holy patron of priests, Saint Jean Baptiste Marie Vianney, the beloved Cure of Ars in France, we present a sermon in which this humble holy priest holds nothing back in exacting a thorough examination of our souls, consciences and habits. By and large Traditional Catholics live their daily lives free of mortal sin, but how many of us seriously take the Cure of Ars' words seriously enough to move out of whatever comfort zone we are in at the present and strive to love God more, to be more aware of His role for each of us, and to manifest our choice of God over the world? That is a question St. Jean Marie Vianney asks. How will we answer? His words are as applicable today, even moreso, than in his time as parish vicar in the post French Revolution days of the first half of the 19th century. It is time today to go back to square one and truly take in the words and heart of this saintly pastor who warned against this because of one problem, the lukewarmness of Catholics who dropped their guard to how powerful satan is and the holy Pere Vianney tells it like it is with his sermon On the Lukewarmness of Souls

    Faith, Hope and Charity are the cross, anchor, and burning heart that sustain us through the theological virtues and open to us the bountiful Gifts and Fruits. Without these vital virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity, one cannot possess spiritual virtue nor reach Heaven. If one lacks the Virtue of Faith, one does not trust in God and therefore it is impossible to please Him for one lacks faith in Him. If one lacks Hope, the opposite is despair and despair of the Holy Ghost is an unpardonable sin if it is one's last act. Finally, if one lacks Charity one exhibits that they do not love God if they do not love their neighbor as Christ mandates as the Two Great Commandments. So basically, without the theological virtues one cannot reach Heaven. That is why they are represented symbolically by the cross to signify the price for redemption, the anchor to signify we must not only be grounded in Faith but trust in God with unwavering Hope, and the heart for Charity for its beating sustains life both in this finite life and in the hereafter. And to reach the afterlife one can better achieve that goal through the Gifts and Fruits of the Holy Ghost as is outlined in Step Eleven, Gifts and Fruits of Faith, Hope and Charity.

          It has definitely been a decade of transition, as this editor dubs it - Transition to Tradition, our last opportunity before God really lowers the boom. Looking back, it doesn't take a brain surgeon to see the deterioration in society as the ranks of the good, decent ones striving for holiness grow smaller and the enemy flanks are massing larger and larger, more threatening than ever. With every day we inch closer to the apocalypse foretold in the book of the same name, contrary to Protestant and conciliar concerns that it was always called "Revelation." Would St. John the Evangelist be surprised, and for that matter the holy Doctor of the Church who translated it and several of the holy hierarchs who ratified the Scriptures at various major councils of the Church, most recently at the dogmatic Council of Trent. Many closet conciliarists reading this may not be familiar with that council since the robber barons have sought to eliminate any mention of Trent in the same manner as the U.S. Government is doing everything it can to wipe out any mention of God. For both these offenses there are consequences, grave ones and we are beginning to see now that both anti-Catholic campaigns by the counterfeit church of conciliarism and the United States Congress and its cohorts in the Obama administration both in Washington and Chicago are getting more desperate as each day passes. Those not grounded in grace had best get right with God before it is too late. Call it "gloom and doom" if you want, but that doom can be eternal and that would cause anyone gloom. Can you say fire and brimstone? To remind you, we will be bringing you throughout this year "Diadems of the Decade" featuring an article from each month of each of the past ten years. We're not saying these are the "Best" of the decade for how do you choose which ones are the best? Yet, they are gems that we want to share for we're sure you will treasure them and realize, like fine jewels, they are still as valuable today especially when investing in souls. For this edition, we present a diadem for each August from 2000 through August 2009.

    They pledge allegiance to the flag of prosperity and perdition through the dagger of deceit. It is the same demonic dagger that has ripped over 50 million unborns from the womb! Their platform is a bill of goods that is bad, really, really bad for souls everywhere!

    This column ran ten years ago in which Dr. Frank Joseph, one of our first contributing writers, saw the handwriting - or should we say swastika - on the wall, for we can see ten years later how similar the Democratic party is to the Third Reich with their own fuhrer in resident Barack Hussein Soetero Obama and how their tactics have furthered a holocaust far worse than what happened to the Jews in the death camps. There over six million were murdered. Compare that with the figure of over fifty million innocents senselessly slaughtered in the womb in a place that should be the safest in the world. Frank didn't mince words in describing the modus operandi of the Democratic Party in trying to sell a platform to a gullible nation. It is a bill of goods that is bad, really, really bad as in sinful with a capital "S" in abortion with the scarlet letter "A." He asked how was this method of manslaughter any different than Hitler's edict to eliminate those who didn't measure up to his concept of what society should be. The Democratic Party has learned well from Hitler .

    A True Church would have truly cared about the welfare of souls and have reeled in the Weakest link before the damage was done by never allowing a criminal pervert to be ordained. But those who did allow it weren't the True Church, were they?

    Nine years ago, Marian Therese Horvat, Ph.D. weighed in on the sad controversy in Milwaukee where the progressive Benedictine prelate 'Archbishop' Rembert Weakland, O.S.B. balked at Modern Rome's direct order to cease and desist from removing the main altar from the old cathedral of Saint John the Evangelist in downtown Milwaukee. Of course in retrospect we all realize who Weakland really was and the fact that there has been no authority in Rome since Vatican II. Weakland's resistance was a sure sign that he had no intention of heeding anything but his own perverted lifestyle, the flocked he fleeced be damned. Another problem is that 40 years after Vatican II Modern Rome, in effect, did not in 2001, nor today in 2010, have adequate criteria for church building and renovations. The great conundrum here is that the Modernist Rome was stepping in to support violation of canonical norms in respect to the desacralization of St. John the Evangelist, but did nothing about the Los Angeles atrocity they still try to pass off as a cathedral, which defies all canonical criteria. But then what don't they defy in respect to God and His holy Church since the death of Pope Pius XII? We share with you Marian's article The Weakest Link of Obedience

    The only difference between the terrorist disaster of the Twin Towers and how the smoke of satan seaped in to destroy everthing in its path is that to the world 9-11 was very visible, whereas Vatican II was invisible yet more deadly, far, far more deadly to souls.

    This column ran eight years ago and was one of the first in addressing the shock editor Michael Cain had faced in realizing what the real problem was and why there had been no fruits in the Church since the death of Pope Pius XII. In delving deeper over the early months of 2002, he pointed out that it was all about security since September 11, 2001. But how secure have souls been for the past forty years? After months of research, he laid out the conspiracy perpetrated by the Revolution within the Church in the 20th Century and the sad fact that most Catholics have been playing right into the hands of the Modernists in the 21st Century. While our attention had been diverted by the tragedy of 9-11, we failed miserably to see, due to the smoke and mirrors erected so cleverly, the far, far worse holocaust - the Bargain of Baal - that has claimed millions of souls over the last four, now five decades. Well before 9-11, there was 10-11!

    No man can serve two masters. There can be no contrary truth to the truth.

    It was eight years ago when Bishop Richard Williamson, in his next to last letter before he was transferred to the SSPX's Seminary in South America from St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary in Winona, Minnesota where he had been for 20 years, reminded all that no matter the posture modern Rome might take, they would still be liberal. In honor of the centennial celebration of Pope St. Pius X, he shared an example of the holy Pontiff's reaction to liberalism from one of his own Cardinals; the very same red-robed one who not only badmouthed Pius X immediately after his death, but was beatified - yes, you heard us right - beatified by John Paul II. Horror of horrors! Bishop Williamson shared the details passed on by the very reliable Msgr. Benigni as well as the Bishop's own take on the undeniable parallel of Communism which is liberalism, progressivism, socialism, call it whatever you like, it's not in harmony with God's Laws or holy Will. The bishop explained in Liberalism is a Killer

    Ten reasons why spiritual leaders do not lead when push comes to shove because they're intimidated by the politically correct canard. The question is: Will we choose to follow Christ or the Beasts?

    Seven years ago we received permission from syndicated columnist Doug Giles, author of 'Ruling in Babylon' and owner of We asked all back then to it to not just pastors, priests and ministers but those who are most responsible: the prelates - bishops who were entrusted with the spiritual welfare of souls. We should have known even then that these impostors were all wolves in sheeps' clothing as has been proved over the years as the wool is coming off to show the bare truth. Doug laid out ten reasons why those so-called 'shepherds' have been so timid and unvigilant. He pointed out why they have not led their flocks in ways Our Lord wishes, but have kowtowed to the politically correct creed to placate man and political parties. Doug unabashedly sent a wake-up call for them to remember why they were called in the first place as he explained so candidly in his column Pastors, Priests and Politics

    Few movements in the annals of history have caused the eclipse of morality as sodomy, which Washington D.C. is fast embracing with legislature that will lead to its ultimate ruin - for God will not be mocked.

    Back in 2005, Gabriel Garnica ran a multi-series dubbed "Incorrigible Dirigibles" and in part three he offered a possible dark glimpse of the future - very dark for we are fast approaching the Eclipse of Morality thanks to sodomy. Oh, sadly, how right he was. While one might think he was being facetious in his words, considering what has happened over the last five years and since then even, it truly gives one pause to fear - can it happen? Unfortunately the answer is yes. If you break down the word 'mite' in sodomite, one realizes a mite is a very small or minute arachnid or creature which often infests. How appropriate for the militant homosexual lobbyists take a magnifying glass to their numbers and distort reality by posing that they are growing into a majority, and indeed they may eventually do just that by infesting all aspects of life from the courts to the chambers to the media channels to the chanceries to the curia. This aberration against God and His Natural Law has got to stop, but will it before more souls are infected? Gabriel wondered as he presented the anticipated rites of New Sodom in Sodo-Might Rites are not Rights

    A Call for all Traditionalists look at the bigger picture and unite in things essential.

    Too many times Traditionalists can get too self-righteous and therefore a piece like Father Paul Trinchard, S.T.L. wrote four years ago was a necessary reminder of the rut we can all get in and why the petty bickering serves no one except satan and his minions. In order to break the chains we all need to pray for the grace of recognizing our fellow Traditionalists for what they truly strive to be and live: Catholics. Fr. Trinchard pointed out the fruitlessness of bickering about the little things while the main issue Traditionalists are in agreement with - the Immemorial Canonized Latin Mass - is undermined further by the conciliar church as countless 'Catholics' continue to applaud and follow the conciliar emperor, not realizing he has no clothes. In fact, considering the fruits as Christ said in St. Matthew 7: 15-21, one would surely say, this "emperor" is "fruitless" as well. This very word is ideal for describing the modernist church. What also is fruitless is for Traditionalists to continue to argue uncharitably over the little things. Father emphasized that we all need to look at the bigger picture and unite in things essential as he explained in Traditionalists Give Traditionalists a Bad Name

    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 Mary's Immaculate Heart.

    Three years ago Cyndi Cain, still recuperating from two major operations, returned to urge readers not be stained by caving to the pressures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism and their Motu madness that has caused 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 ourselves 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 sent 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 final Symphony of Suffering column "Stand firm; and hold the traditions..." Surrender Not!

    To Consider that a member of the Jewish Sanhedrin could be a saint might, on the surface, sound more like more of Ratzinger's heretical ecumenism, but in fact, there are three generations of loyal High Priests who were working in concert with the Lord, and the last in that lineage could very well be a saint.

    With the 2000 year anniversary of the Apostle Saint Paul's birth in Tarsus two years ago, Scott Montgomery presented a fascinating, factual account of the early life of the Apostle of the Gentiles and how God all along had prepared him through Jewish Law with a very special teacher of the lineage of the good Rabbis before Christ's public life in order for St. Paul to carry out the mission he would eventually accomplish after his "awakening" on the road to Damascus. While it is true that the Apostle of the Gentiles was graced by visions of Christ Himself and was greatly inspired by the Holy Ghost, Paul's own knowledge and human inspiration came from the one God had prepared for him for his special mission under the master Rabban Gamaliel, son of Simeon and grandson of the faithful Hillel. Many times we lump the Pharisees into one loathsome list, but there were exceptions which are shown here in the lineage of Hillel. Scott shared this, as well as a short tie-in with the finding of the Relics of St. Stephen in addition to an excellent extract, giving credence to St. Paul being the author of the Epistle to the Hebrews, by Fr. Fernand Prat, S.J. whom Pope Saint Pius X had personally appointed as one of the forty consultors to the Pontifical Biblical Commission in 1903. Scott shared his scholastic essay, Saint of the Sanhedrin

    If we're really striving for holiness it's time to shut up and listen by really using that God-given mass of potential between our ears. It's the way saints are made.

    One year ago Griff Ruby set aside his polemics on scholastic dishonesty and his series on sedevacantism to ask readers to use the month of the Immaculate Heart to focus on improving their meditation. With the overload of information inundating us these days from every medium that most portends doom and gloom, a retreat into a contemplative zone can do wonders for one's soul and psyche. During these dog days of summer, why not try relaxing our minds by turning inward through meditation to converse with truly man's best friend ever: God. He asked us to meditate not in the sense of eastern mysticism, but in the manner the Church asks us to pray, through contemplative communication with Him by blotting out worldly things. We, who are finite, talk to Him so much, and yet we don't seem to take the time to hear what the Infinite has to say to us. How can we steer souls, beginning with our own, if we don't listen to the Instructor, the Supreme Admiral to guide us over the rough and turbulent sea of life? Open your ears and heart, and the mind will focus on things not of this earth, but of what God wants. Try it, you'll like. Griff laid out the simple formula in his article On Meditation

    Cyndi Cain returns after a long hiatus away from the lessons to impart some poignant thoughts. Lost today is the honest work ethic that enabled the apostles and succeeding missionaries to persevere in saving souls. No longer is hard work the desired goal; no longer are the rewards of sweat and tears on our hands and knees paying off because the payoff today is to make things as easy as possible. Lazy is the word and laziness breeds apathy and apathy breeds lukewarmness, and lukewarmness prompts the Lord to regurgitate those who embrace such out of His mouth. Let us take a cue from the trendsetter for hardwork in our Lord's time - St. Martha - and learn from her example in serving others while at the same time realizing those others must return the favors by participating in God's plans and mission to save souls. They can do so by contributing either their time, talents or treasures. To skimp on these will not bode well when God tabulates the final tallies. We have the Holy Ghost to guide us. Why aren't we tuning in to the greatest technology available: listening and speaking to God!?! Cyndi reminds us that There is Work to be Done

    John Gregory takes a break from polemics to provide an inspiring piece on Saint Anne in a similar style to his meditations on the Mysteries of the holy Rosary. There is much to contemplate on the intricate and intimate role good Saint Anne played in bringing forth the Immaculate Conception. He calls on the words of His Holiness Pope Pius XI in his encyclical Casti Conubii and the insight of the noted liturgian and Benedictine abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger in illustrating that through the cooperation with God and her holy husband Saint Joachim, she nourished the only person ever conceived without sin for a purpose she did not know except for her love of God and the child she carried. Staying true to her mission she dedicated and raised the young child Mary to prepare her for the greatest story ever told: the Redemption of mankind. John provides the contemplation in The Mother of the Mother of God

    Per Christ's promise, He sent His Spirit to be with us always until the consummation of the world as He asserts in St. Matthew 28: 20. There may have been a few anxious moments among the apostles over those ten days while they cowered in the cenacle room after our Lord's Ascension. He was gone, what now? They found out, oh, did they on Pentecost Sunday and the rest is history for the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity, He Who proceeds from the Father and the Son has been busy ever since as the Sanctifier in bestowing both Sanctifying and Actual Grace on those willing to accept it as heirs to Heaven. The Holy Ghost is indeed the Source of the life of the Church. With that in mind, we can clearly see God does not consider the conciliar church His Church or He would not have withdrawn His protection and graces as we can see Step Ten: The Sanctifier and Grace.

    Griff Ruby returns after a few months hiatus with installment nine of his series refuting a SSPX anti-sedevacantist book. For several decades now, traditional priests and bishops, who have reached the inevitable conclusion that the Chair of Peter has been vacant, have had to be on the defense against attacks from all corners. Isn't it about time they went on the offense for the sake of souls? In effect, the traditional bishops, who have remained loyal to the infrangible teachings of the Church and have not given one iota of concessions to the conciliar church, have themselves to blame for allowing the chair to remain empty as long as it has. That might seem like a rash statement, but when you consider that they are legally auxiliary bishops of the Eternal Diocese of Rome you realize they therefore have every right to call for a conclave of those eligible to elect a true Pope. While they may reply that they are waiting for a miracle from Heaven to restore the Primacy of Peter, perhaps they do not realize that God just might want them to help effect that by doing what they, who have not apostasized nor subscribed to the false religion of Novus Ordoism, are rightfully expected to do as true Successors of the Apostles: Perpetuate the Faith and restore Catholic Order to the disorder created by the Robber Barons of Vatican II by electing a true Pope to teach, govern and sanctify Catholics for the salvation of all. That is Griff's summation in Authority by Default? .

    John Gregory provides undeniable proof of the veracity of the sedevacantist position. The title of this article would seem to be a no-brainer. Of course trees exist you say. But if that is so obvious, then why is it not as obvious as to whom, over the last five decades, have been the ones responsible for preaching error, for allowing the foxes and wolves in sheeps' clothing to "wretchedly ensnare the souls of the simple, and drag with them into perdition, destruction and damnation countless peoples committed to their care and rule, either in spiritual or in temporal matters"? Those words are from a previous reliable true Pope who foresaw the dangers we face today and sought to do all he could so that when these antipopes would surface we would recognize them. Sadly, too many are like the sleeping dog today. They say let sleeping dogs lay, don't disturb them. That has to come from satan himself because Pope Paul IV warned all "so as to arrest the foxes who are occupying themselves in the destruction of the vineyard of the Lord and to keep the wolves from the sheepfolds, lest We seem to be dumb watchdogs that cannot bark and lest We perish with the wicked husbandman and be compared with the hireling." What good is a mute watchdog? What's needed is an axe to fell the bad trees as John exposes the rot in the forest of false popes in his essay Do Trees Exist?
