While we imagine Atila Sinke Guimaraes and the rest of our friends at Tradition in Action would be loathe to admit it, they have just admitted sedevacantism in Atila's most recent article in which he disects Benedict XVI's latest heretical work "Jesus of Nazareth" whereby Atila concludes:
    "These repetitions add nothing new to the denial we analyzed above; they only reinforce it. I could unfold the consequences of these denials of the Ascension and of Heaven to other fundamental dogmas of our Creed. For example, these questions naturally rise:

      • Since Benedict XVI denies the Ascension, does he not also deny the Assumption of Our Lady to Heaven?
      • Since he denies Heaven, does he not also deny Hell and Purgatory?
      • If these three Last Things are denied, does he not also deny the Final Judgment?
      • And what about the personal judgment after one’s death? Is it not also necessarily denied?

I will not answer these questions now because the goal of this article is to prove one single point: Benedict XVI clearly and indisputably denied that Our Lord Jesus Christ ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father. This dogma of Faith uninterruptedly confessed for 2,000 years is now denied by a Pope.

I believe that the least we can say is that our present Pope does not profess the full integrity of the Catholic Faith. This evidence should give food for thought to anyone who still has a drop of Catholic sense in his soul."

   The point is Atila, a charter member of the Tower of Trent Hall of Honor, did not have to answer those questions for if one in Ratzinger's position and knowledge veers even one iota from the Dogmas of holy Mother Church he is a heretic as Pope Leo XIII wrote in Satis Cognitum "...he who dissents even in one point from divinely revealed truth absolutely rejects all faith, since he thereby refuses to honor God as the supreme truth and the formal motive of faith." - and as St. Thomas Aquinas affirmed when he determined that after having exceeded "savoring of heresy" and "erroneous theology" and even "an opinion approaching heresy" one has gone to the furthest edge of the abyss with "material or formal heresy", which is pertinacious heresy which the Angelic Doctor defined as "a species of infidelity in men who, having professed the faith of Christ, corrupt its dogmas." One can be excommunicated formally or automatically, which is called latae sententiae. This would not be 'private' heresy, but public heresy in which the person expounding such knew very well that it contradicted the Sacred Deposit of the Faith. In other words, due to one's knowledge, the higher one rises in rank within the Church the more culpable he would become, i.e. inculpable ignorance could not be claimed. And, as St. Robert Bellarmine wrote in De Romano Pontifice, "According to what St. Cyprian affirms in this passage, even had Novatian been the true and legitimate Pope, he would have automatically fallen from the pontificate, if he separated himself from the Church." Since a heretic automatically separates himself from the Church and Ratzinger has done that very thing by his actions and words, the precedent has been set that he cannot be a true Pope. Ergo, sedevacantism: the Chair is Vacant because Ratzinger has denied a divinely revealed truth and thus rejects all faith and knows exactly what he is doing.

    We are glad and grateful our good friends at Tradition in Action are finally realizing the syllogism of sedevacantism for while not using that terminology, that is exactly what Atila points out in Ratzinger's work as you can see in his latest Bird's Eye View on the News column published on August 29, when Atila makes this evident even in his title Benedict XVI's Different Religion



   Thanks to Dr. Droleskey for reminding us of a special occasion that just passed on Saturday. Tom provides his tribute at Christ or chaos on September 4 in honoring Father Louis Campbell on the occasion of his Fiftieth Anniversary as a priest, receiving, before the "aggiornamento" chaos began, the Sacrament of Holy Orders that enabled him to offer "that which Thy high priest Melchisedech offered to Thee, a holy Sacrifice, and unspotted Victim" - quod Tibi obtulit summus sacerdos Tuus Melchisedech, sanctum Sacrificium, immaculatam Hostiam. Father Louis was ordained as an Augustinian priest in his native Nova Scotia on the Feast of the holy Pontiff Saint Pius X on September 3, 1961 before anyone - except for the devious Modernists - had a clue of what Vatican II would produce. Since the mid-nineties, few have been as outspoken and clear in their rejection of the heresies of Vatican II and its apparatchiks than Father Campbell who is the pastor of St. Jude's Shrine in Stafford, Texas, a suburb just southwest of Houston.

    We mentioned above Mario was the first to espouse sedevacantism on our site, and Father Louis Campbell was the second on our invite to publish his sermons that to this day are so pertinent, precise and consise, not to mention dead on in what has happened and is happening regarding the eclipse of the Church in our day. We extend our heartiest congratulations to Father and ask for his prayers as we pray for him and all other true priests who are so precious to us for there are so few left. For several years Father provided us with his sermons to publish and you can see them from 2002 through 2006 at "Qui legit, intelligat".

    Now that Summer has come to an end, we remind those who may not have seen Cyndi's Letter 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 place ourselves in the care of the Most Sorrowful Mother during her month of September and ask the protection of holy St. Michael against 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.




Note: As these pages load for this first edition in September, we invite you to say as many Hail Mary's as necessary. You can click on the Rosary button to the left as well to see the Rosary Prayers in English, Latin and Spanish. We pray you will be imbued by the truths of the authentic Catholic Faith we provide here and yearn to learn more of the infrangible truths of the One and only Church founded by Jesus Christ.

Behind him kneeling is Fr. Brendan Legg who was also ordained on June 29 during a Pontifical High Mass. Click the video below to hear part of Fr. Oswalt's story as told to Stephen Heiner of True Restoration.



The Church recalls in the Liturgy today the duty of charity which derives therefrom. The law of Our Lord Jesus Christ is the perfect development of the Law of Moses as the Epistle points out. Let us not follow a pharisaical interpretation of the law which reduces our religious duties to to a few outward practices. "The letter killeth, the spirit quickeneth." The Gospel of St. Luke today treats the parable of the Good Samaritan ...More

There is a commemoration of St. Rose of Viterbo today. When Rose was only 3 years old, God showed how pleased He was with her in a most wonderful way. One of her maternal aunts died. The family were standing around the bier weeping aloud. Deeply moved by the sorrow of her relatives, little Rose went to the coffin, raised her eyes to heaven, and prayed silently. Then she placed her little hand on the body of her deceased aunt and called her by name. The dead woman immediately opened her eyes and reached out to embrace her little niece, who had raised her to life again. ...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 Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost Father brings out the importance of the Good Samaritan parable for it is, as the Fathers and early Doctors of the Church all agree, an allegory of the New Covenant. The victim in dire help is Adam, his posterity is Jerusalem. The man, by heading for Jericho is seeking the world, the flesh and the devil, is accommodated by the demons personified in the robbers, who take grace from him by beating him as he succumbs to sin. Those who pass by him without helping represent the old Law, while the Samaritan is Christ Who represents the New Law. His beast of burden signifies our Lord's humanity and the inn He brings the man to represents the only Church He founded. The wine for the man is the Blood of Christ, the oil is His mercy. The host of the inn represents St. Peter and his succession of true Popes and Hierarchy. The charge to go and do in like manner for the Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost


As noted above, we present the best of Mario Derksen's works this month to acquaint readers with the Catholicity of this young Traditional Catholic as we begin a series first run back on February 15, 2002 entitled "Vatican II and the Gospel of Man" as he meticulously peeled off the skin-deep layers of rhetoric, exposing the tightening muscles of modernism that seek to squeeze the bones of doctrine. This prevents the living organs of Truth and Tradition from fully being able to function, thus allowing the cancer of humanism to penetrate the pores of the Mystical Body of Christ. Mario analyzed disturbing statements from Vatican II and the conciliar 'popes' which reveal an exaggerated and novel view of man and his dignity - a humanistic agenda that has been the core of the the post-conciliar campaign to put distance between modernist Rome and Eternal Rome as you'll discover in part one of his seven-part series: The Enthronement of Man.




God made it known that the safety of the glorious Venetian state was due, not to the diplomatic skill of her doges, or her formidable galleys, but to the holiness and merits of her bishop St. Lawrence Justinian. He was a true fore-runner of the ecclesiastical reform later carried out by the Council of Trent. ...More

Mario Derksen continued his seven part series on "Vatican II and the Gospel of Man" as he meticulously peeled off the skin-deep layers of rhetoric, exposing the tightening muscles of modernism that seek to squeeze the bones of doctrine. This prevents the living organs of Truth and Tradition from fully being able to function, thus allowing the cancer of humanism to penetrate the pores of the Mystical Body of Christ. Mario showed how the Pastoral Constitution Gaudium et spes took the smoke of satan and torched the Truths and Traditions upheld by previous pontiffs by diminishing man's dignity by elevating him to something he can never attain - divinity. Mario explained in part two of his column Towards the Deification of Man.





There is a commemoration today of Saint Eleutherius, Abbot. A wonderful simplicity and spirit of compunction were the distinguishing virtues of this holy man. He was chosen abbot of St. Mark’s near Spoleto, and favored by God with ...More

In continuing his seven-part series on "Vatican II and the Gospel of Man" first published in early 2002, Mario Derksen illustrated how the First Vatican Council assured there would be no novelty in Catholic doctrine. There wasn't any innovations until along came Vatican II and Paul VI who took it upon himself to tinker in areas previously considered sacrosanct from the time of Jesus Christ on. As we see today, the results allowed the infiltration of the enemy where Freemasonry to cast a giant, engulfing and suffocating shadow over the Council and beyond as Mario explained in part three of his column An Anthropocentric Church?





There is a commemoration today of Saint Cloud or Clodoald who was the grandson of Clovis, King of the Franks. When the latter died in the year 511 his kingdom was divided between his four sons, of whom the second was Clodomir. Thirteen years ...More

Mario Derksen continued with his seven-part series on "Vatican II and the Gospel of Man" as he showed how the Novus Ordo has been so ingrained in so many that few are aware that what was foisted on the people would, if Rome were truly Roman Catholic, depose most of the bishops for promoting innovations that, as the Second Council of Nicaea decreed, "wrongfully and outrageously devise the destruction of...those traditions enshrined in the Catholic Church" such as the outrageous New 'Mass'. Yet the vast majority of Catholics have no clue their faith is being ransacked and destroyed as Mario explained in part four with his column Actions Speak Louder Than Words.




This festival of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary originated in the East where it is mentioned very early. At Rome it was not observed before the reign of Pope Sergius I. As Eve, our first mother, arose from the side of Adam, dazzling with life and innocence, so Mary ...More

On the Ides of March back in 2002 Mario Derksen illustrated so well the ambiguities that have marked the post-conciliar church, specifically the long pontificate of one known as John Paul II in showing how difficult modern Rome has made it for Catholics to know their faith in what would seem to be a deliberate attempt to cloak the teachings of the Church in mystery and hide them under a cloud of nearly impenetrable gobbledygook as Mario explained in part five with his column The Razzmatazz of the Post-Conciliar Church.




Known as Slave of the Blacks and the Slave of the Slaves, Saint Peter Claver was born after the Council of Trent in 1581 at Verdu, Catalonia. He was a farmer's son who studied at the University of Barcelona and became a Jesuit at the age of 20. Becoming a priest, he was greatly influenced by Saint Alphonsus Rodriguez to become a missionary in America. He ministered, physically and spiritually, to slaves when they arrived in Cartegena...More

On this next to the last installment of Mario Derksen's excellent seven-part series on "Vatican II and the Gospel of Man", he exposed back in 2002 the novelties of new theses which are couched in such ambiguity that he could only term it 'bafflegab' for the post-conciliar church (Also called Newchurch as Mario dubs it, or as Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey termed the "counterfeit church of conciliarism" or, as we coined in describing the robber barons who stole in: "VulgArians". One thing we do know: whatever you call it, it's false and not Catholic!) is determined to "dialogue" ad nauseum. All of this gab only baffles Catholics further, all playing into the hands of humanists as Mario explained in part six with his column The 'Bafflegab' of the Post-Conciliar Church: Razzmatazz II.




Born at Sant' Angelo, near Fermo, in the March of Ancona, around the year 1246, Saint Nicholas Tolentino was devote to the devout life. He is often depicted in the black habit of the Hermits of St. Augustine --a star above him or on his breast, a lily, or a crucifix garlanded with lilies, in his hand. Sometimes, instead of the lily, he holds a vial filled with money or bread. His parents, said to have been called Compagnonus de Guarutti and Amata de Guidiani (these surnames may merely indicate their birth-places), were pious folk, perhaps gentle born, living content with a small substance. Nicholas was born in response to prayers, his mother a model of holiness. He excelled so much in his studies that even before they were over he was made ...More

We complete Mario's seven-part series on "Vatican II and the Gospel of Man" with this seventh installment first published on Good Friday of 2002. Mario illustrated how the razzmatazz, 'bafflegab', and skimble-skamble of the post-conciliar church, and especially in the pronouncements by John Paul II, left the faithful gasping for air and flying blind in a snowstorm of ambiguity and humanism that, as we can see since, has only gotten worse and more confusing as Mario explained in part seven with his column The Skimble-Skamble of the Post-Conciliar Church: Razzmatazz III


John Gregory provides a comprehensive reflection/meditation and study on the Second Glorious Mystery in conjunction with the twelfth Saturday of the fifteen week Rosary Crusade first introduced by His Excellency Bishop Robert McKenna a few years ago. Our Lord has gone to prepare a place for us, and thus the effects of the Ascension remain an on-going mystery for Christ continues to prepare for us at the Father's right hand and in that wondrous news is extended the greatest hope to all for where Christ has gone He waits for us to follow in a place of everlasting happiness for those who are obedient to His teachings and cooperate with the divine Will. Just as Jesus left instructions for His Apostles, He has left us inerrant instructions that, if we follow fully, will assure us of being with Him forever. The Second Glorious Mystery
