What a week, topheavy at the beginning with the Solemnity of Christ the King followed two days later by the Solemnity of All Saints and then All Souls Day. The latter marks the time of the year that we can gain plenary indulgences for the souls in Purgatory, part of our duty before God as members of the Communion of Saints. From noon on All Saints Day through midnight of All Souls Day the Catholic faithful, as often as they visit a church to pray for the dead, reciting six times during each visit the Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be for the intentions of Holy Mother Church may gain a plenary indulgence applicable only to the souls in Purgatory, under the usual conditions of making a good Confession within a week before or after, worthily receiving Holy Communion from a true priest within the week and having the right intention of heart. This is called the Toties Quoties Indulgence. Throughout the month the faithful are encouraged to pray the De Profundis Prayers for the holy souls. It is so important to remember those poor souls for someday, perhaps soon we also may be in their company for one needs to be totally purified before one can enter into the Beatific vision. We must all make reparation for our sins and the sins of others and this is an excellent opportunity. Let us all take advantage of such blessings God has bequeathed to us.

   Last week we notified you of Hutton Gibson's illness and have heard he is improving. We urge you to continue to pray for him as well as praying the Rosary for so many of our other dry martyrs who strive to keep the Faith and share it with others. Chief among these would be the senior bishop who we have so much respect for and that is His Excellency Bishop Robert McKenna, O.P. who officially retired this past Sunday after so many years as a guiding beacon for so many souls over the years. May he have better health and many blessings in his retirement. May the fruits he has fostered blossom among the faithful in following in the footsteps of the Apostles and Christ's charge to preach the Gospel and convert souls. Jesus is our Sovereign King and to Him we owe allegiance first and foremost. We bring you the encyclical on this by His Holiness Pope Pius XI with Quas Primas.

   Besides providing the Haydock Commentaries Uncompromising Loyalty to Our King and Blessed are they who strive to be saints, John Gregory files a piece on All Hallows' Eve on just how scary the changes wrought by Vatican II have been with Trick or Treat or Threat". November is all about souls and we bring you two pertinent powerful pieces written by the respected Dominican Father Paul Sullivan with Read me or rue it and How to Avoid Purgatory. One sure way is not to kill anyone and this includes abortion, euthanasia and suicide. In Step 38 of "Catholicism Made Simple" we focus on the Fifth Commandment Thou Shalt Not Kill. We remind you that this Friday and Saturday are the First Friday and First Saturday. Finally, we bring you Chapter Twenty-One of Book Three of the Revelations and Prophesies of St. Bridget of Sweden entitled The Fruitless Tree Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey files an article on the Assisi Abomination with Outcome Based Conciliar Math: Assisi I + Assisi II + Assisi III = A-P-O-S-T-A-S-Y

    Out of necessity, we continue to remind those who may not have seen Cyndi's Letter during the summer, that we depend on our readers to assist us in keeping The DailyCatholic on line and ask you to pray on what you can do to help. We are so appreciative of those few who did respond, but what is disappointing is that few pledged and thus we cannot budget expenses because other than a few monthly donations, we have no idea what will be coming in to keep The DailyCatholic going. If you haven't donated yet, it is not too late. We still need help very much and ask in all humility if you could at least look at our plea and see where you can help by contributing to the Cause of Carrying on the Apostolic Mission ...in Their Footsteps

    May we all take advantage of the opportunities this week with the Toties Quoties Indulgence to pray for as many souls as possible. May their souls and all the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.

On the Feast of Corpus Christi we launched a DailyCatholic Twitter page. Thanks to the help of David, webmaster of NihilInnovetur.com and editor for our Twitter page, we hope to reach more souls through this newest technology that prior to now we have avoided. However, in an effort to reach beyond the choir, if you will, and to provide inspiration with short prayers and ejaculations, facts, links, etc., we have launched out into the deep of social networking and ask guidance from the Holy Ghost to navigate others to the beacon we offer with The DailyCatholic.




    The royalty of Christ rests upon a twofold basis. He is our King by right of birth and by right of conquest. The first refers us to the personality of the son of God, whereby, in His divine nature as. God an by virtue of the hypostatic union, He is the sovereign Lord and Master. The second places before us the God-man coming down on earth to to rescue fallen man from the slavery of Satan, and by the labors and sufferings of His life, and passion, and death to win a glorious victory for us over sin and hell. A special liturgical feast in honor of the Kingship of our Lord Jesus Christ, to be celebrated throughout the world on the last Sunday in October, was instituted at the end of the Holy Year Of Jubilee by His Holiness Pius XI. The Pontiff points out in his encyclical letter on this occasion that people are instructed in the truths of faith, and brought to appreciate the inner joys of religion far more effectually by the annual celebration of our sacred mysteries than by any pronouncement, however weighty, of the teaching of the Church. "The Church's teaching affects the mind primarily; her feasts affect both mind and heart, and have a salutary effect upon the whole of man's nature... "Moreover, the annual and universal celebration of the Feast of the Kingship of Christ will draw attention to the evils which anti-clericalism has brought upon society, in drawing men away from Christ, and will also do much to remedy them. While nations insult the beloved name of our Redeemer by suppressing all mention of it in their conferences and parliaments, we must all ...More

    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 for the Solemnity of Christ the King


    On December 11, 1925 His Holiness Pope Pius XI decreed to the Universal Church that the last Sunday of October would be the Double of the First Class Feast of Christ the King. As such, it supersedes the 23rd Sunday after Pentecost, submitting the latter to merely a commemoration. This feast was initiated to remind the world that Christ is our Sovereign King and we all must pay due homage to our heavenly king by being obedient servants and strive to establish His kingdom - the Social Reign of Jesus Christ here on earth. His Holiness declared this in his Encyclical Quas Primas. There follows after the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass the Sacred Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. All kneel in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament and, with the priest, recite the consecration; then the Litany of the Sacred Heart and Benediction. Those in the state of Sanctifying Grace by making a good Confession within eight days and worthily receiving Holy Communion receive a plenary indulgence in praying the Consecration. We encourage you to read Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey's inspirational and poignant essays for this feast:




    In several traditional chapels today, there is the observance of the Vigil of All Saints for All Hallows Eve. This day was actually established to honor the many martyrs who gave their lives for Christ and His Church. Evolved through the centuries, this explains why this feast is taken from the Common of the Martyrs. The preparing by a solemn vigil for the celebration of All Saints' Day, probably dates from the Eighth Century, when November 1st was fixed for the celebration of the feast. The fast on this vigil is of universal observance. As on other vigils Holy Mass is celebrated in purple vestments, and the liturgy throughout is of ...More

    John Gregory files an article he posted back in 2004 and nothing has changed except everything has become more obvious how devious satan is. On this All Hallows' Eve in which the pagan has taken over the day with the occult and the satanic ruling, it's important to identify something much more dangerous that should scare souls into the reality of what they have in the concilar church. One of the mechanisms for haunting souls into believing ghost stories not of the True Spirit but of a spooky synthetic synergy was the Vatican II document Sacrosanctum Concilium on the Sacred Liturgy. At least back in 1963 it was still sacred until the Council and Paul VI got their grimy hands on the sacrosanct. Now, nearly a half century later years later we can clearly see how they have turned what once were holy churches into haunted houses. No amount of decorating the conciliar zombie liturgy will alter what is behind the facade even if Ratzinger's new missal (yeah, another one!) is going to be introduced on November 27th this year. It's all more of the same hooey that hasn't a ghost of a chance to be pleasing to God and if it is not pleasing to Him, it can't be pleasing to man! John explains as he peels away the mask with Trick or Treat or Threat




    We can pay no greater honor to the Saints than by offering up to God in their name the Blood of Jesus. The efficacy of their past merits and present prayers is greatly increased when offered to God in close association with the merits and prayers of Our Lord. Therefore the Church commemorates on this day all the Saints in Heaven without exception, and thus honors also those who are unknown and who have no public recognition in the liturgy. The custom of keeping holy one day in the year as the festival of all God's saints, whether commemorated in the Liturgy or not dates back to at least the beginning of the Fifth Century. In ancient times it was usually called the feast of All Holy Martyrs. The day of its celebration varied; and in the Church ...More


    Day One

    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 All Saints, Father Haydock provides a plethora of commentaries on practically every verse of importance. While the Epistle identifies the sign by which we see what constitutes sinners striving to be saints - the sign of the cross, the Gospel lays out the formula for becoming saints with the Beatitudes which Christ our Lord explains with such clear simplicity that any and all can understand. These steps to sanctity are all contained in the Lord's Prayer, and the platform for being Christian in every way for saints are nothing but sinners striving to do God's holy will in all things no matter what the world, the flesh and the devil throw their way as indicated in the Haydock Commentary, Blessed are they who strive to be saints


    Sixty one years ago today is the last time a true Pope spoke infallibly from the Chair of Peter. November 1 is the anniversary of Pope Pius XII's Apostolic Constitution which defined the Dogma of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven. He decreed this last dogmatic declaration on the Solemnity of All Saints, November 1, 1950. It is important to remind all that this is the last infallible pronouncement to date that was declared ex cathedra. It has been the intent by the conciliar apparatchiks to deemphasize The Blessed Mother's role and to minimize the importance of her holy Rosary, even going so far as to eradicate Fatima in their effort to placate and patronize Protestants and Pagans with the cockeyed reasoning that the Church must be more in tune with the world and its ways. Such erroneous thinking emerged from the Modernists and their man who put it all into motion, the man who called for aggiornamento, one of the men, along with Montini and Ratzinger, who had been censored. Oh, if only Pius had realized what lay ahead. For the final dogma from the last true Pope, see Munificentissimus Deus

    Do we realize when we die we could very well be in the same predicament of the souls in Purgatory today? Do we feel comfortable with that? Father Paul O'Sullivan, O.P. helps us better understand what we must do. Do we realize how few pray for the souls in Purgatory today? Who knows, the way the conciliar church is going, they may soon attempt to do away with the Church Suffering. Don't put it past them. First Limbo, then Purgatory. After all, they've tacitly done away with hell, giving the impression to many that everyone goes to Heaven and there is no need to convert. If that's true, then the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the centerpiece of our Faith and the only true worship pleasing to God, is useless. True Catholics see the error in such logic for they know the truth of the fruits of the Holy Mass and prayers for the souls in Purgatory. They also know that the conciliar church has borne no good fruits and cannot per our Lord's words in St. Matthew 7: 15-20. It's another reason to read Fr. Paul O'Sullivan's poignant words Read Me or Rue It!

    Because of the emphasis on the Church Suffering during November we bring you another excellent work from the noted pre-conciliar Irish priest Father Paul O'Sullivan, author of "The Wonders of the Mass" and several magnificent traditional booklets that have increased in popularity as the years go on and as the souls in Purgatory increase and sit, and wait, and wait, and wait because we here on earth are not doing our part as the Church Militant to relieve those poor souls of their suffering. Only by helping them can we avoid Purgatory, only by remaining in the State of Sanctifying Grace, assisting at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass - the centerpiece of our Faith and the only true worship pleasing to the Holy Trinity. Through the propitiatory sacrifice, our Rosaries, and making reparation for our own sins and those of others can we help the holy souls in Purgatory and hope to either cut down our time there or, by the grace of God and our total commitment as members of the Church Militant, to discover How to Avoid Purgatory




    This day is either a feria day for the twentieth Sunday after Pentecost or an Octave within the Feast of All Saints.

Pope Gregory IV chose November 1st as the Feast of All Saints. The octave was added by Pope ...More


    Day Three

    The fifth commandment covers a multitude of sins that many may not even be aware of; sins that stem from anger, pride, envy...yes, it runs the gamut of the Seven Deadly Sins. Thanks to the heresies of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, the line has been greatly blurred where progressives call killing of animals and capital punishment murder and yet there are very few times they could be considered unjustified. We detail when they are, while also pointing out that it is important to also realize one sin against the fifth commandment goes largely unnoticed in today's society and it is murder most foul where in the United States alone 4,000 are slaughtered every day and yet, God forbid, it's legal in a Godless nation. Yes, we're speaking of abortion and there is a price to pay for taking even one life, let alone well over a billion when one correlates contraception and other methods of abortificients. God had a reason for establishing this commandment for He alone is responsible for creating life and ending life, not man. This is explained in Step Thirty-Eight with The Fifth Commandment

    First Friday Devotions


    Day Four

    On this feast of a holy Cardinal of the Church we present Chapter Twenty-One of Book Three from the Revelation and Prophesies of St. Bridget of Sweden regarding another great saint of the Church and founder of the first monastic order. The Blessed Mother speaks to her daughter in completing her divine Son's praise of the greatness and perfection of the life of St. Benedict. Then Mary reveals to St. Bridget what has become of those who once were true to the founder of the Benedictines by illustrating how the soul that bears worldly fruit is represented as a fruitless tree. She provides the metaphor of how the pride of mind is flint, and the cold soul as crystal. Finally Our Lady illustrates three noteworthy sparks arising from the tree, the crystal and the flint to bring consolation on how a soul can be redeemed and regain a life of grace in escaping from The Fruitless Tree.

    First Saturday Devotions


    Day Five

    This First Saturday of November ends the weekly editions as we begin tomorrow, Sunday November 6th through the 26th our Annual Autumn Hiatus Edition which we have brought you over the past several years. This hiatus enables us to catch up on correspondence and prepare for Advent as we will return with regular editions on the First Sunday of Advent on November 27th. Who knows what the state of the world will be when we return on that First Sunday and the colors turn to violet as we prepare for the Messiah as promised throughout the Old Testament; a good transition, so to speak, from our Christ the King edition this week to preparation for the Coming of the King on Christmas Day. We pray everyone will have a blessed Thanksgiving and give thanks not for material things as much as the spiritual grace to realize where the True Church resides and pray others will be granted this same grace so that we will see, in God's time, the end of the apostate church of Vatican II and the restoration of holy Mother Church as proclaimed by the true reliable Popes on our Credo port.
