While the focus of this first week of October is on Friday, the Feast of the Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the rest of the week is packed with feasts beginning with the Feast of the Holy Guardian Angels, which this year falls on Sunday and thus must give way to the Sunday observance of the Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost and the Haydock Commentary The Last Shall be First. Monday is the feast of the Little Flower, one of the more recent saints Saint Therese of Lisieux whose little way proved so fruitful. Tuesday we celebrate the feast of the founder of the Order of Friars Minor Saint Francis of Assisi and John Gregory files an essay on who the real Francis was and how insidiously the Modernists have used him to further try to justify their syncretic Assisi Summits. John exposes the charlatans in his piece Look to St. Francis for Answers. On Wednesday many will gather on St. Michael's campus in Spokane and all information can be found below Annual Fatima Conference. On the feast of the holy Confessor Saint Bruno we bring you the second part of the First Commandment in "Catholicism Made Simple" with Sins Against the 1st Commandment. Friday we bring you the venerable Dom Prosper Gueranger's inspiring words for the feast and Saturday we celebrate the Feast of Saint Bridget of Sweden by bringing you the Seventeenth Chapter of Book Three in the holy mystic's compiled works The Prophesies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden with Live by the rule or rue it.

    So you can see it is a busy week and one where we can gain grace by emulating the virtues of these saints. In addition, editor Michael Cain files Unite each and every Parish and Pray or Perish as Prey. This completes the trilogy of editorials on the state of the world Stupidity or Sabotage, the Church Eternal Rome or Modernist Rome, and this week the Traditional Movement, the remnant church which instead of growing larger, is dwindling. Why? Ah, that is what he delves into in encouraging the fact that there are strength in numbers.

    And speaking of numbers and strength, that brings us back to the Holy Rosary. October is the month of the Holy Rosary that so fittingly reaches its apex with the last Sunday of the month being the First Class Feast of Christ the King to Whom the Queen of Heaven and earth leads us always. Below are the fifteen promises of the Holy Rosary:

  • 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.

   We remind you of a Prayer to St. Joseph during October in also remembering this month in respect to Mary's chaste spouse as she affirmed when she told the Fatima visionaries "In October I will perform a miracle so that everyone can believe in the apparitions.... St. Joseph will come with the Holy Child to bring peace to the world." Oh, do we need peace today and there is so little as the world churns in rebellion against God and nature and nature bellows back. We know from the signs of the time that His cup is already overflowing. Beware the Vengeance of the Divine when man flaunts it in His face and rebukes His Commandments and rejects His very existance. Oh, great will be the consequences for those who stubbornly follow man's will rather than the Divine Will.

    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

    So many times we scratch our heads and ask "what more can I do to right the ship?" These times are indeed the times that try men's souls and if we are not rooted in the Faith and have faith, hope and charity to outlast the devil, if we do not pray we will be prey. The equation is there for hardwork, knowledge and attitude to add up to all our efforts, but no matter how much we give, God always gives more and it is our love and devotion to Him that measures a man's success; not man's opinion. Below we provide a fascinating and inspiring three minute proof of that taken from YouTube. May we all take up the fantastic weapon we have been given thanks to St. Dominic spreading the devotion and place ourselves in the care of Our Lady who will guide us to her divine Son as we place ourselves in her care, trust in the Guardian Angels, strive to do the little things as well as we can and, like St. Francis, strive to rebuild Christ's Church one parish at a time. The sands of time are fast disappearing. We may have few opportunities left to make amends for our sins, few days left to help save souls, to avert them from the coming insurrection that will claim so many souls because of the wiles and snares of the devil.

On the Feast of Corpus Christi we launched a DailyCatholic Twitter page. Thanks to the help of David, webmaster of NihilInnovetur.com, 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, 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 Gospel for the Fifteenth Sunday After Pentecost the Mass reminds us that having received the Holy Ghost at the Feast of Pentecost and Jesus in Holy Communion, our souls and bodies should be moved by the Spirit and entirely obedient to the operation of the divine gift of the Eucharist, so that ...More

    In the prayer for the feast of St. Michael (September 29) we ask that the Holy Angels may fulfill the special office entrusted to them of watching faithfully over us upon earth. This feast included together with St. Michael the whole of the heavenly court. A distinct feast of the Guardian Angels originated only at a later date. The Spaniards observed it in the Sixteenth Century and ...More

    To enhance each Sunday's Epistle and Gospel we present this special feature provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. We publish it here 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 Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost we have first St. Paul's epistle to the Ephesians in which he expands on a measure that cannot be measured, the breadth and width and length and depth of Christ's Love, true Charity for man. In the Gospel recorded by St. Luke, Our Lord provides the parable of the wedding feast to show that whomever exalts himself shall be humbled and he who humbles himself before God, shall be exalted. The Last shall be First for the Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost

    Even though the feast is celebrated only with a commemoration this year, we should celebrate our Guardian Angels for they 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 in reasonable driving distance. 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. See the Prayer to Send Your Angel to Mass

    Mary Frances Teresa Martin was born of saintly parents at Alencon (Orne) on January 2, 1873. She was educated by the Benedictine Nuns at Lisieux. After her ninth year she tried to enter the Carmelites, and put her case before the Bishop of Bayeux and Pope Leo XIII, whom she visited. At the age of fifteen she was allowed to enter the Carmel at Lisieux (April 9, 1888). She died at the age of twenty-four. There was nothing extra-ordinary about her religious life; she was perfect in her simplicity, humility, charity, her love of God and her trust in Him. She offered herself as a victim to the to the "merciful love of the good God." She was just a little child in the arms of Jesus. Her way of sanctity was a little way; Pius XI said: "We wish that St. Theresa's secret of sanctity should be made known to every ...More

    Editor Michael Cain weighs in with the third of a three part set, this week focusing on the Traditional Catholic movement. It is time to get down to the business of a Synod of Bishops. It is time for our shepherds to put away their differences and come together for the sake of the salvation of souls and to perpetuate the holy Faith. This is not a new idea and this urging does not come from us. No, it comes from a saintly Pope who insisted that the consecrated bishops unite and not to do so only causes further division and fuel for the evil one. Just as not to oppose evil is evil itself, so also to not encourage unity is akin to failing God and going against the infallible, perennial Magisterium of the Church. We are not fiefdoms or tribes, but True Catholics devoted to the truths and traditions handed down and which we must preserve and protect, even if it means prodding and poking the bishops to get their act together. Remember it was the laity in 1271 who basically locked the clergy in a room so that they had no choice but to reach a consensus. They had an advantage that our current crop of true bishops also have and that is the very same charge and charism the original Twelve Apostles had and in that they have the guidance and protection of the Holy Ghost. To reject such is akin to abandonment and despair for their flocks. Cain not only gets to the point, but publishes a tongue-in-cheek satire sent by John Pontrello to illustrate why we need to Unite each and every Traditional Parish and Pray or Perish as Prey.

    Saint Francis of Assisi, born in 1182, was the founder of the Order of Friars Minor. Chosen by God to be a living manifestation to the world of Christ's poor and suffering life on earth, he was early inspired with a burning love of poverty and humiliation. Divine desire burned in him so mightily as to kindle a like desire in other hearts. Many joined him, and were constituted by Pope Innocent III into a Religious Order. He lived at the time when the feudal system was disappearing, and Christian democracy was dawning. St. Francis undertook to teach to this generation a spiritual language suited to ...More

    John Gregory provides a contrast on the true St. Francis and the St. Francis the Vatican II church would like you to believe, the one where everyone loves everyone and live and let live. Not! While the apparatchiks of the counterfeit church of conciliarism whitewash the devastation that has visited the Church over the past fifty years, the evidence begs to shout the truth and all we need do is see the heresy spewed by Ratzinger and his predecessors and then read the real purpose behind the Seraphic Father's desire to convert the infidels and it had nothing to do with syncretism or ecumenism, but rather a necessity to convert to the Faith, the only Faith and St. Francis was willing to walk through the fire to win souls; something infidels would never do, nor would apostates. How do we know Modernist Rome is the apostate? We have St. Francis' own prophesies that confirm exactly what is being carried out today for we are indeed in that time foretold by Heaven and all the true prophets. John reminds us of what the holy Look to St. Francis for Answers

    Today begins a five-day assembly of traditional Catholics at Mt. St. Michael's in Spokane for the Annual Fatima Conference with a plethora of speakers gathering to convey the truths and traditions of holy Mother Church and how the by following the guidance of the Mother of God she will always bring us closer to her divine Son. We are pleased to know that Mario Derksen will be a featured speaker. As mentioned in our last four editions, Mario was the first published contributing writer here at The DailyCatholic who broached the subject of sedevacantism dating back to his first article he wrote in January 2002. He will be speaking on a subject he researched and analyzed for nearly four years before releasing his findings early this year with his treatise on the Thuc Bishops

    Saint Bruno of Cologne, after brilliant studies at Paris, was made a canon of Rheims cathedral. Feeling himself called to a life of retirement and penance he betook himself with six companions to a solitude called the Chartreuse and there laid the foundations of the Carthusian order. In the end he left Chartreuse for a most desolate place where he passed the rest of his life in a cave. He died October 6, 1101. Confessor, ecclesiastical writer, and founder of the Carthusian Order. He was born at Cologne about the year 1030. He is usually represented with a death's head in his hands, a book and a cross, or crowned with seven stars; or with ...More

    While we may realize that we can have no false gods other than the Holy Trinity -- three Persons in One God -- we may not realize that there are many ways to sin against the First Commandment and most of them are most grievous. Such sins often are sins agains the faith such as infidelity, apostasy, heresy and indifferentism or lukewarmness. Then there are sins against religion that encompass everything from witchcraft to sacrilege to idolatry which can come in many forms and which the devil so deviously inserts in our path that we must be aware 7-24 to avoid the pitfalls the evil one lays out before us dressed in such a tantalizing way. Beware. For one needs to be aware of how we can commit sins against Faith, Hope and Charity that can be devastating to our chances of gaining eternal life if we are not fully repentant with an amendment to change our ways. Once one begins to fall, it is hard to stop the plunge and that is why it is so important to either stay away from the ledge or equip one's spiritual life with a strong harness to pull ourselves away from the abyss. In all things avoidance and abstinence are the best course to follow for the safety of our souls and to always remember, Christ's words in St. Matthew 12: 30, "He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters" This is reinforced in the second of two steps on the The First Commandment

    October 7th is the anniversary of the glorious victory won in 1571 by the Christian forces over the Turkish fleet at Lepanto. This triumph of the Cross over the Crescent was universally attributed to the powerful intercession of the Mother of God, whom Pope St. Pius V fervently invoked with her Rosary in his hand, and to whom the prayers of all Christendom were ...More

       The Feast of the the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary 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 as established by His Holiness Pope St. Pius V. 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.

    Saint Bridget (or Birgitta) of Sweden was born in 1303 in Finista. From childhood, the Lord granted her special graces, visions and an extraordinary understanding of divine mysteries. At age seven, she had a vision of the crucified Jesus in all the ...More

    We began bringing you these revelations to St. Bridget of Sweden exactly one year ago on her feast day and ever since readers can see clearer than ever the mind of God and what we need to do to not only assure our own salvation, but win souls for Him in sharing Heaven. In the Seventeenth Chapter of Book Three, This chapter deals with the Blessed Virgin Mary's words to her daughter St. Bridget of Sweden, which highlight and praise the life and order of St. Dominic, and illustrate how he turned to the Virgin at the hour of his death. She also conveys how, in modern times, few of his friars live by the sign of Christ's passion given them by Dominic, but many of them live by the mark of incision given them by the devil as we see in Book 3, Chapter 16: Live by the rule or rue it..
