On this last week of September we focus on the holy Faith and two of its greatest defenders Saint Michael the Archangel and the holy Doctor of the Church Saint Jerome who, through the grace of the Holy Ghost, compiled all of the divinely inspired words from a compendium of divinely inspired words, forever known as the Latin Vulgate all gathered into one book (biblio) from which we get "Bible." Yes, Virginia, there was a Bible one full millennium before the infamous Martin Luther came along. Protestants and conciliarists have a difficult time comprehending such truth as they continue to interpret and twist the Word of God to suit man's fancy (cf. Galatians 1: 8-10). Oh, how far man has fallen from fidelity to Jesus Christ and His one, holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church to more than 33,000 different 'religions'.

        We all know the the bitter fruits of the Protestant Revolution (call it Reformation if you want, it was definitely a revolt against Christ's Church) have borne no good fruits, but then how could it when it was a bad tree from the start and we know our Lord's words in St. Matthew 7: 15-20 are true. St. Michael knew how to deal with those who foment revolution. Just ask Lucifer. Of course the latter couldn't leave well enough alone and he made that fact known in a mystical vision God allowed Pope Leo XIII to have where he witnessed the devil trying to bargain with God for a 100 year battle for souls. Little did Leo realize the total ransacking of the tried and true that would result, but he knew the prince of darkness was serious and so, to safeguard the faith and his universal flock, he composed the magnificent Prayer to St. Michael, of which a shorter version he mandated be prayed after every Low Mass along with three Hail Mary's and a Hail, Holy Queen along with a trilogy of "Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us". These comprised the Leonine Prayers. Of course, those in cooperation with hell itself couldn't have this safeguard stand in their way to obliterating holy Mother Church and so, before they could alter the Holy Sacrifice to where it was "totally null and utterly void" they had to do away with the Leonine Prayers. That would be done by one Giovanni Montini with his signing off on the Consilium's document Inter Oecumenici, which was issued, if you will, on September 26, 1964 less than two months before the heretical Lumen Gentium on November 21 of the same year. Oh, those devils are clever and devious. Ecumenism had struck with a vengeance and in Chapter two of the former document, in paragraph j under the "Mystery of the Eucharist" (Notice "Holy" had already been eliminated) you would find: "The last gospel is omitted; the Leonine Prayers are suppressed."

        Why? Ah, that is what editor Michael Cain answers in his editorial Eternal Rome or Modernist Rome because not only is satan's time running out, but so are the sands of time running out on those who refuse to connect the dots and see that they steadfastly cling to a bad tree in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, one destined for the eternal fire. Wanted: More true Catholics to throw kindling on this apostate sapling that sprouted in the sixties and has spread a viral virus that is deadly.

        In addition, this week we resume our series Catholicism Made Simple with the first of two parts on the First Commandment. John Gregory bookends the week by providing the Haydock Commentary for the Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost with God is not Mocked and completing the Fifteenth Saturdays Rosary Crusade with the a reflection/meditation on the Fifteenth Mystery - the Fifth Glorious Mystery The Coronation. We also present chapter 16 of Book 3 of the Prophesies and Revelation to Saint Bridget of Sweden with a lesson that we should all take to heart and which we need to hold our true bishops' feet to the fire with Woe to the Worldly Bishop and finally, what better bishop to emulate as the opposite of the worldly prelate than the holy Doctor of the Church Saint Jerome on the last day of the month of Our Sorrowful Mother Mary with Father of the Mother Tongue.


    We remind all that next week is the Annual Fatima Conference high above the city of Spokane, Washington on the majestic campus of Mount Saint Michael's from October 5-9 where Mario Derksen will be a featured speaker. As mentioned in our last three 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 his treatise on the Thuc Bishops, a work he researched and analyzed for nearly four years before releasing his findings early this year.

        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 place ourselves in the care of the Most Sorrowful Mother during this last week of her month and ask the protection of holy St. Michael against the wiles and snares of the devil.

    Michael Cain, editor

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 it be no longer our own nature but the effect of this sacrament that ...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 Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost we first see St. Paul's epistle to the Galatians in which he affirms that no one can fool God, man yes, but not God. He will not be mocked. This is exactly what is happening today and yet so many still want signs, the kind Our Lord works in St. Luke 7 in raising the dead son, healing the blind and deaf and still, the very multitudes who clamored for more, mocked God by being the same who abandoned Him at the hour of His Passion. Oh, man is a fickle lot and it does have consequences as to his actions. God is Not Mocked for the Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost

    The eight North American Martyrs (1642-1649) were six priests and two lay brothers. They were heroic members of the Society of Jesus who were martyred in North America to bring the Faith that is necessary for salvation to the Huron, the Iroquois and the Mohawk Indians. Five of the eight North American martyrs were put to death in what is now Canada, and three of them in New York State. There is a shrine to the United States' martyrs at Auriesville in New York. There is a shrine to the Canadian martyrs at Fort Saint Mary near Midland, Ontario. They are Saint Rene Goupil, a lay brother martyred in 1642 in New York State; Saint Isaac Jogues, a priest, and Saint John de Lalande, a lay brother, martyred in 1646 in New York State; Saint Anthony Daniel, a priest, martyred in ...More

    Editor Michael Cain weighs in with a follow-up to last week's editorial as he turns from the world view of the world to the world view of the Church as they see it today. What Cain sees is that it's time for all Catholics to get off the fence. Those who can't see the truth now, may never. We've said all we can, provided all the proof we can that we are indeed in an interminable interregnum mainly because the Great Apostasy foretold in Sacred Scripture and by many saints, not to mention the Mother of God, has arrived and we are smack dab in the middle of it. You have a choice. Choose wisely for as the Gospel of St. Matthew for the Fifteenth Week after Pentecost brought home: "You cannot serve God and mammon." Which is it? Eternal Rome or Modernist Rome? The former encompasses holy Mother Church from its founding upon the Rock of Peter through the pontificate of Pope Pius XII; the latter comprises the Vatican II church from Roncalli to Ratzinger. You can't have both. It's either follow the teachings of the Church as taught from 33 A.D. to 1958 or jump on the express to hell with the relativism and heresy spewed since Pius' death. Time is running out to eschew the wide path and get aboard that narrow path. Yes, it's a lonely way, but the only way! Cain lays it all out once again in Eternal Rome or Modernist Rome.

    Saints Cosmas and Damian, twin brothers, distinguished themselves as physicians. They gave their lives for the Faith at Cyrus in Syria where they were buried. Besides using their skill for the healing of diseases they sought to spread the Faith in Christ. After many tortures they died about the year 285 in the persecution under Diocletian. The fame of their miracles spread over the whole world; many churches were erected in their honor at Rome and of ...More

    Through these revelations to St. Bridget of Sweden we 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 second chapter of Book Three, the Blessed Mother speaks to her daughter of the opportune solution to the difficulties meeting the bishop on the narrow path. In this chapter the Son of God provides an explanation to the bride St. Bridget that the damnation of souls does not please God; He also reveals the conversation between two bishops about the astonishing questions of the younger bishop to the older bishop, and about the answers of the older bishop to the younger one which are not encouraging for his eternal welfare. All should take heed as we can see in Book 3, Chapter 16: Woe to the Worldly Bishop.

    Saint Wenceslaus, duke of Bohemia, ruled that country during its period of conversion to Christianity. His devotion to the Holy Eucharist Is mentioned by St. Alphonsus in his book, 'Visits to the Blessed Sacrament'. Wenceslaus was in the habit of sowing and reaping with his own hands the wheat from which the hosts were to be made, and he used to rise in the night even during the coldest seasons to visit the Blessed Sacrament. His virtue was the cause of his death, for it aroused the antagonism of his evil-minded mother and brother, who caused him ...More

    We appreciate the patience of readers in waiting for this series to resume. We do so with this thirty-third lesson with the First Commandment: "I am the Lord thy God, thou shalt not have false gods before Me." This will be divided into two parts, the first "I am the Lord thy God" focusing on the positive aspects of this most important first commandment and the second part will deal with "thou shalt not have false gods before Me" in outlining the sins against this primary precept. We debunk the Protestant notion that we worship Mary or the Saints and show that worship alone belongs to the Holy Trinity, three Persons in One God - the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. Yet it is vital to realize that Jews sand Muslims do not worship the same God as conciliar 'popes' have heretically professed for though we are all descendents of Abraham, the Old Testament was fulfilled with the Coming of Christ and because Jews did not and will not accept Christ as the Son of God and Muslims have no time for the Son or the Holy Ghost, going so far as to demean the Son as merely a prophet on the same level as the mad maniac Mohammed who apostasized from the Church in the 600's with his own set of laws and rituals that are the very antithesis of all God stands for, they fall into the category our Lord spoke of in St. Mark 16: 16, "He that believeth and is baptized, shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be condemned." This is reinforced in the first of two steps on the The First Commandment

    This is the original feast of the leader of the Heavenly armies, Saint Michael. The captain of the heavenly armies, the angel named in the Canon of the Mass, held from early times the first place in the Liturgy among the other angels; wherefore many churches dedicated to St. Michael in the Middle Ages were ...More

    In honor of the Double of the First Class Feast of St. Michael on September 29, we highlight the entirety of the prayer Pope Leo XIII composed. We all know the short version, mandated to be included in the Leonine Prayers after every Low Mass, but few are aware of the longer version. After Vatican II, in legion with the devil Giovanni Montini outlawed this necessary prayer and then one wonders how "the smoke of satan" got into the sanctuary? The conciliarists wanted to make sure this powerful prayer would never see the light of day again for in it Leo foretold what would happen: The shepherd would be struck, the sheep scattered. We present both the long and short versions of this poignant prayer which should never be forgotten. The Power of the Prayer to St. Michael

    Saint Jerome was born in Dalmatia in 329. Even during his life he was renowned as a Doctor and interpreter of Holy Scripture. He defended Catholic teaching against many heresies; his chief aim was to be a perfect monk and before he would consent to be raised to the priesthood he exacted ...More

    The final day of the month, following immediately the Double of the First Class Feast of the Dedication of St. Michael the Archangel, is the feast of the holy Doctor of the Church St. Jerome. He was born into a wealthy family and used those riches to receive the finest education at the hands of the world's greatest professors in Rome and then employed that wealth of knowledge for Christ's holy Church. He amassed all of the Scriptures and, through the grace of the Holy Ghost was able to translate the inspired word into the Latin tongue, all wrapped up in the magnificent Latin Vulgate. For this massive work that he accomplished while continuing to carry out his vocation and mission of shepherding souls into Heaven, he has often been called Father of the Mother Tongue

    On this feast of the holy Bishop St. Remigius, it is only fitting that the first day of the month of the Holy Rosary be dedicated to Our Lady with the First Saturday votive Mass of the Blessed Mother on Saturday. The Mass of the Blessed Virgin shows us Mary as Mother of our Savior. She was predestined from all eternity for the role of co-redemptrix, for as Eve was the intermediary chosen by the angel of darkness to bring about the fall of Adam, so also Mary the intermediary to whom the angel Gabriel delivered the message of salvation from Heaven. She is also blessed since ...More

    John Gregory provides a comprehensive reflection/meditation and study on the fifth Glorious Mystery. What greater glory can there be for a lifetime of devotion and uncompromising fiat to the divine will than to be recognized for all time what the Blessed Mother accomplished in being crowned by her divine Son and heavenly Father with the assistance of the Holy Ghost, her divine Spouse. It is a lesson for us that indeed there is a light at the end of this worldly tunnel, a light from the Beatific Vision attainable only by adhering willingly and lovingly to the will of Almighty God for she is the Woman of the Apocalypse, with a crown of twelve stars. The Fifth Glorious Mystery

      In this Saturday leading up to the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary next Friday, we complete the Fifteen Week Rosary Crusade. Those who have been faithful in praying each Saturday since it kicked off a few days before the feast of Our Mother of Perpetual Help in June can truly say they've persevered.
