Because Chapter Twenty-five is only one paragraph about the Blessed Mother's lament to her daughter St. Bridget on the fact that the most innocent Lamb, Jesus Christ, is neglected by His creatures in modern times, we combine here with Chapter Twenty-six where it dovetails, if you will, into an explanation by Christ to the bride on how few honor Him as He identifies the ineffable mystery of the Trinity, and how diabolical sinners obtain God's mercy through contrition and a will to improve. Our Lord responds on how He has mercy on everyone, both Jews and others, and about the double judgment, that is, the sentence for those who are to be condemned and for those who are to be saved. He references Purgatory and Limbo without naming them. Pay attention also to the paragraph in larger bold type in which the Son of God confirms the Church's belief on Baptism of Blood and Baptism of Desire, contrary to the Feeneyite stubborn, strict, albeit heretical narrow-minded stance of EENS. If you thought Chapter Twenty-Four was an eye opener, Chapter Twenty-Six is an eye popper regarding BOB and BOD. Though this is private revelation, it has been approved by the Magisterium of the Church and Jesus' words should wake the echoes in Affirmation of Church Teaching
Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey has posted a fascinating article by George Farias who remembers Tom's grandfather by adoption - William Humes (aka Red Fox) [No, not that Red Foxx from Sanford and Son infamy!] Farias' portrayal provides the Godincidence of Tom's family lineage that reveals the rich roots of American history and culture and the fruits of Tom's interest in political science and sensus Catholicus that led to his uncompromising stance for truth and promoting the Social Kingship of Christ and Mary as our Immaculate Queen in George's piece titled Chief Red Fox
More evidence seems to crop up every day just how corrupt the counterfeit church of conciliarism is and how a house divided against God cannot stand. A good example was the blatant disregard for the canonical process by the apostates of Modernist Rome in fast-tracking someone who to the world was a saint, but to Heaven was anything but. That would be Mother Teresa and now the revelation that she supported several of the vilest persons, including now jailed pedophile priest Fr. McGuire who, ordained a Jesuit in 1961, was convicted of raping children five years ago. By the way, he came out of that cesspool known as the Chicago Archdiocese. Now it has been revealed that McGuire ministered to her order and nothing was done. The list is long of those who have corrupted and been corrupted and JPII's 'favorite' humanist who espoused ecumenism is at the crux of the castrophe that is the 'saints' factory Wojtyla established in the destruction of the apostolic evangelical traditions as Traditio reports with The tainted 'saint' of Calcutta
Amidst all the shenanigans between Bishop Bernard Fellay of the Society of St. Pius X and Modernist Rome in ironing out the so-called Preamble, the Dominican non-priest 'Fr.' Giovanni Cavalcoli enters the fray by publicly trying to coax the SSPX to accept it and fall in line. It's kind of like the resist-and-recognize crowd telling sedevacantists to accept the apostate imposters as true popes, not that you have to obey them. But Cavalcoli's arguments are more like Ravioli unraveled and that can be a mess as Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey points out by sticking a fork in his arguments because indeed Tom's syllogism is that it's done: Cavalcoli is not Catholic nor are those he represents nor will the SSPX be if they cave. Will anyone still be standing in Trying To "Understand" Apostasy?
To understand further how corrupt, see the Kansas City Star article where the Diocese tries to justify spending one million in just four months in connection with sexual abuse (read pedodphilia, read sodomy). Everywhere in the conciliar structures this is going on, yet clueless parishioners still contribute to the corruption via the collection plate. Where are their senses and sensus Catholicus? Everything's falling apart in Kansas City
Each Sunday and Holy Day of Obligation we feature the Haydock Commentary provided by John Gregory as compiled by Father George Leo Haydock and 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. For the Second Sunday after Epiphany, the topic is love and miracles with the Wedding Feast of Cana in which Christ performed His first public miracle and the Haydock Commentary treats the whys and wherefores of the loving relationship between Mother and Son and His willingness to honor her by changing water into wine, a precursor to the transubstantiation of the wine into the Blood of Christ at the Consecration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the most loving gift He could bestow to His children whom St. Paul entreats in his epistle to love one another as our Lord loves us. The First Miracle
Though the feast is not universally celebrated in the Traditional Propers of the Mass, January 15 is the traditional feast of Our Lady of Prompt Succor. Dr. Marian Therese Horvat provides an excellent article on this feast and how intricately it is tied to the United States, especially New Orleans and the amazing miracle Our Lady interceded for in the Battle of New Orleans in 1812 and General Andrew Jackson's acknowledgement of such. Of course, that was back when there was respect and awe for God's Justice and Mercy, not to mention respect for Catholic truth. Fast forward to modern times and the fact the statue of Our Lady wept in 1972. Could it be she wept because of what was happening to her divine Son's Mystical Bride or that within one year human sacrifice would return to the new world in the senseless slaughter of the unborn with Roe v. Wade? Either way she knew God was not happy and could stay His hand only so long. Perhaps she knew that the "Big Easy" was about to run into hard times for the sinful debauchery of Mardi Gras. Can anyone say "Katrina"? Marian lays out the history of Our Lady's title and the valiant efforts of the Ursuline nuns who went above and beyond the call of duty in answering Heaven's call and how Heaven responded in 1812. She explains in Our Lady of Prompt Succor,
a Patroness for Americans
This is the first Doctor of the Church in the calendar year. This holy Bishop and Doctor of the Church Saint Hilary of Poitiers was another from the fourth century who, like the three great Doctors who preceded him (St. Athanasius, St. Ephrem and St. Cyril of Jerusalem), stood by the axiom: One cannot serve God by employing the philosophy that one should 'go along to get along.' That false belief is, sadly, something so prevalent in today's society of lemmings. Unlike the one whose name sounds so similar, there are no similarities to the character of St. Hilary with Hillary Clinton. The former is a saint, the latter...well, you fill in the blanks, but keep it clean. Back to the true Hilary. He was both greatly persecuted by the Arians and ostracized by many within the Church because of false information. Hmm, sound familiar? Every Traditional Catholic can relate to that. This first Doctor, of what is today France - eldest Daughter of the Church - was known for his great labors in the fields of God from Gaul to Ilyria. Born the same year as his colleague Doctor and Bishop of Jerusalem St. Cyril, he labored tirelessly for the True Faith and was called the Laborer for God
While most conservative Americans have as their goal to assure Barack Hussein Obama is not reelected because of the dangerous path he has already started the country on down the yellow brick road of Communism through his class warfare rhetoric and appointments, those who cling to the Constitution would be well warned to be careful who they tout as Dr. Droleskey illustrates that the lesser of two evils doesn't always work. Despite the fact the Kenyan feasts on the abortion plank, there is no assurance Mitt Romney and the other naturalists the GOP is offering won't do the same thing. What we need to do is cling to the true Faith and not worry about the conciliarists because we have the true Faith and that, in itself should be the greatest consolation in this time of upheaval and prompt every traditional Catholic to want the same for others. Tom explains in his article with a title almost as long as this intro: Attention! Attention! Calling All Lemmings! Calling All Lemmings! Drink Your Naturalist Kool-Aid Before Following The Lead Lemming Over the Cliff and Into the Abyss
As a special treat for this Feast of the Holy Family, we bring you inspiration from the late Father James F. Wathen, pioneering traditional author of The Great Sacrilege who passed away just over five years ago on November 6, 2006. This piece was first published here in 203 and to show the measure of the man, though he was dying of cancer, he left us these priceless gems of wisdom for husbands and wives, for young men and women in the single life, and for children as well. In each, he provides solid Catholicity of how each must respond in order to have their state in life blessed and become fruitful in the eyes of God, and then in the eyes of the world which, as he points out, is often a paradox for living as a true Catholic is a contradiction to the world. His encouraging words give hope that more will take his solid advice and apply it to their lives so that a generation of true Catholics can be generated for tomorrow. He also includes the Litany of Humility. These words are his lasting gift we bring you during this week following the feast of the holiest of families, Jesus' Own in Nazareth with Mary and Joseph, titled, Thoughts to Sustain Catholic Families"

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 DailyCatholic readers.

The Fatima Prayers
My God, I believe, I adore, I trust and I love Thee; and I beg pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not trust, and do not love Thee.
(repeat the above 3 times then bow your head in reciting the following:)
O Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in tabernacles throughout the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in unison with the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners.
O Most Holy Trinity, I addore Thee! My God, my God, I love Thee in the Most Blessed Sacrament!
O my Jesus, it is for love of Thee, in reparation for the offenses committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary and for the conversion of poor sinners.
