This week can truly be considered a very sorrowful week for several reasons. The one most are focused on is the tenth anniversary of the horrific holocaust of those who died in the World Trade Center Towers on 9/11/01 by enemies of the United States and of Jesus Christ for they were pagan infidels. Few realize a tragedy far worse than 9/11 was 10/11/62 when Angelo Roncalli, calling himself John XXIII convened the infamous Second Vatican Council. Few back then could have predicted the end results. Such bitter fruits are so lamented in Heaven for in the aftermath of a Council that ripped itself and its members from the membrane of the Head of the Church, and in the process tore the Church's limbs asunder, Heaven weeps as Our Lord's and His Immaculate Sorrowful Mother's Hearts are stabbed anew again and again. We are reminded of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Mother this Thursday on the Ides of September that is preceded by the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. These two exalted feasts highlight this middle week of the month dedicated to Our Sorrowful Mother that also includes another Double Major feast: The Most Holy Name of Mary on Monday. Truly a week dedicated to Our Lady.

To commemorate the tenth anniversary, we bring you a series of articles we ran ten years ago in the immediate aftermath of this tragedy. We had planned on featuring one for each day for this week except for the feasts of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross and the Seven Sorrows, but we had a county-wide blackout this past Thursday that lasted until mid Friday and this editor could not access the internet until the technician came out late this Saturday afternoon. We finally are back to full power and I've worked feverishly to get this issue ready. We planned to promote the links below with features for each day, but with the outage we are forced to just provide the links below. That is why below you'll still find Mario's series from last week for each day this coming week. Perhaps a blessing in disguise so more will read it. Fortunately I had prepared most of this issue earlier in the week so we're not totally in the dark (which we literally were) as far as this second edition is concerned for you will still find the liturgy for each day and John Gregory's Meditation for the Third Glorious Mystery on the Thirteenth Saturday of the Fifteen Saturday Rosary Crusade. 9/11 forever changed the climate of the world and not for the better for Christ is not only forgotten, but His enemies are doing all they can to eliminate any mention of the Son of God from our lexicon. Try as they might, they will not succeed for even though everything is topsy turvy in a parallel universe, God will not be mocked.

       Ten years ago many were asking questions. If only they had realized Fatima was the answer. With that segue, we remind you of the Annual Fatima Conference that will be held early next month from October 5-9 where Mario Derksen will be a featured speaker. As mentioned in our last edition, 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 his treatise on the Thuc Bishops, a work he researched and analyzed for nearly four years before releasing his findings early this year. Below you'll see additional articles by Mario we feature this week.

        For those who may have missed the first edition of September, we'll keep the links to Mario's excellent series on "Vatican II and the Gospel of Man" for as we have stated many times, before 9/11 there was 10/11 when in 1962 the Catholic Church got blindsided by Modernist planes that rammed into the structures of the Faith in trying to bring it down. Were it not for the firemen of tradition, they may very well might have totally destroyed the Faith, but Christ has assured us that cannot happen for "the gates of hell shall not prevail against it" (St. Matthew 16: 18).

        Finally, we 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 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, 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 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 liturgy for the Thirteenth Sunday After Pentecost shows us that by faith we put all our hope in Jesus, for He is our Refuge and we ask for the virtue of charity, which renders us lovers of the divine law and ...More

There is also a commemoration of Saint Protus and Saint Hyacinth(not to be confused with the St. Hyacinth of August 17). They were both Martyrs during the persecution of Valerian (257-9). The day of their annual commemoration is mentioned in the "Depositio Martyrum" in the chronographia for 354 (Ruinart, "Acta martyrum", ed. Tatisbon, 632) under 11 September. The chronographia also mentions their graves, in the ...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 Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost Father continues with the Samaritan, this time in respect to the ten lepers and the only one to return and give thanks for his healing by the miracle of Jesus Christ is a Samaritan. Christ exhibits surprise that this Samaritan is the only one left, but the Son of God knew and it was another manifestation that He had come for all, not just the Jews. He conveys this by assuring this man that the faith he had is what healed him, made him whole. The Faith of the Samaritan for the Thirteenth 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. On this 10th Commisseration of 9/11 we bring you an article he wrote in 2003 where Mario reflected on the devastation that has been visited upon the Church. Just as we are discovering more each day, 9-11 was not an isolated, spur of moment passionate terrorist act, so also it was no happenstance or inspiration from above that triggered the outbreak of Vatican II and a new religion. And since then the epidemic has spread from "Ground Zero," a virus affecting the soul that was engineered by the very "technicians" and "spiritual physicians" we should have been able to trust. Looking back over 50 years, we can clearly see the only antivirus to the venom of this new doctrine is to hold to the traditions handed down in doctrine and liturgy, and realize that Christ will triumph in the end just as His Mother's Immaculate Heart shall triumph and the Revolution defeated. Until then, realize that the revolutionists are in charge as Mario points out in Ground Zero.

This feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary was originally instituted by Pope Innocent XI in memory of the great victory won over the Turks before the walls of Vienna (September 13, 1683), was fixed for this date under Pope St. Pius X. It was Pope Innocent XII who had ordered that it should be kept on the Sunday within the Octave of the Nativity of ...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.

The liturgy for the preceding Sunday - the Thirteenth Sunday After Pentecost - shows us that by faith we put all our hope in Jesus, for He is our Refuge and we ask for the virtue of charity, which renders us lovers of the divine law and practitioners of it. Let us pray for ...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?

In the Latin Roman Rite this feast is celebrated on September 14th each year to celebrate the Exaltation of the Holy Cross on which Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior, died. Historians record that the true cross was unearthed by the Empress Saint Helena, mother of the Emperor Constantine the Great in the year 326. With Constantine as emperor his mother had the funds and the visa so-to-speak to conduct an extensive expedition for the true cross for it was the sign of the cross in the sky that enabled her son to be victorious - "In hoc signo vinces." Though she was nearly 80 years old her mission was to uncover Christ's cross so that all the world could ...More

The crux of our faith rests on the Holy Cross for without Christ's ultimate sacrifice on the Cross there would be no Resurrection, no salvation. Thus we bring you the etimology of the word in a special feature to help the faithful focus on the message Holy Mother Church conveys in the liturgy of the Proper of the Holy Mass so the faithful can better understand the magnificent correlation of Sacred Scripture. It is also our hope that in choosing the Latin word with its meaning and derivative more will be attuned to hearing Latin read at the altar and better comprehend the beauty of the Mother tongue. Lift High the Cross

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.

The Church commemorates by two Feasts the martyrdom suffered by Our Lady, one of two feasts devoted to this same devotion in union with the Passion of Her Divine Son Jesus and His Holy Cross. The First Feast, kept on Passion Friday before Palm Sunday especially commemorates "the Compassion of Mary;" while the second, kept today on September 15, the devotion to the Seven Sorrows. This feast commemorates the seven sorrows (Seven Dolors) of the Blessed Mother of God which are documented in ...More

The VerbumQUO for the Feast of the Seven Dolors of the Blessed Virgin Mary is "Stabat Mater" meaning "The Mother stood" or "The Mother was standing" and is the well-known 13th century Gregorian Chant Hymn, taken from the Sequence Stabat Mater for the second of two feasts in the liturgical year for Our Lady of Sorrows; the September observance being the greater Double Feast of the Seven Sorrows with A Mother's Love that Knows No Bounds

This is the signature feast for the month of September dedicated to Our Sorrowful Mother. In Passion Week this feast precedes Holy Week and the Triumph of the Cross, but this month it is that triumph, the Exaltation of the Holy Cross which immediately precedes this Double of the Second Class Feast of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Tradition says that Mary, meeting her Divine Son Jesus bearing His cross, fell under the weight of her anguish. Upon the place of this awful meeting a chapel was raised, which took the name of St. Mary of the Spasm, and a feast was celebrated under the same name for several centuries. At the provincial Council of Cologne in 1413, to rebuke the audacity of the Hussites, who had laid sacrilegious hands upon the images of Jesus Christ crucified and His Holy Mother, was instituted the feast of the Commemoration of the Seven Dolors of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and its celebration was fixed for the Friday of Passion Week. This Feast, substituted for that of the Spasm, or rather blended with it, was eagerly accepted by the faithful. To represent the anguish of Mary, painters have shown her with her heart pierced with seven swords. Let Mary lead us and show us the combination that unlocks the door, possible only by the ultimate Sacrifice of the Cross Why is Our Lady so Sorrowful? She is a Mother and She continues to weep because so many do not believe, do not adore, do not trust, and do not love Her Divine Son. Wouldn't you weep too? Mater Dolorosa

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.

Pope Saint Cornelius succeeded St. Fabian as Pope in 251. He behaved with zeal and piety in his pastoral charge and adhered to his duty with courage and steadfastness. The holy Pope suffered martyrdom, September 14, 252. Saint Cyprian, Archbishop of Carthage and Primate of Africa, laid down his life for Christ on September 14, 258, six years later, to the day, after his friend St. Cornelius. St. Cyprian, one of the most famous of the earlier ...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.

While Saint Francis of Assisi, in September 1224, was rapt in meditation on Mount Alvernia, Almighty God as a mark of His special favor deigned to impress on his hands, feet, and side the likeness of the sacred wounds of Christ. Until the day of the saint's death blood flowed from these wounds at intervals. Pope Sixtus V ordered this feast to be observed by the whole Church. Clement VIII suppressed it, because the Church only dedicates special solemnities to the mysteries of our redemption; particular favors granted to the saints by God directly concern their individual sanctification and are commemorated when the life of each saint is read in the Breviary on the day of his feast. The feast was restored, however, by Pope Paul V, and raised to ...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 Third Glorious Mystery in conjunction with the thirteenth Saturday of the fifteen week Rosary Crusade first introduced by His Excellency Bishop Robert McKenna a few years ago. Fifty days after our Lord Jesus Christ conquered death and ten days after He bodily ascended into Heaven, He made good on His promise to send His Spirit. The Holy Ghost came with a rush of grace and inspiration, transforming the formerly apprehensive Apostles into men of virtuous courage who were now ready to fully take up the command Christ had given them. The charism of the Church was born that day and the Faith spread rapidly with three thousand on the first day. A glorious day it was! The Third Glorious Mystery
