O sweet Saint Agnes, I earnestly implore thy compassion and commend myself to thy prayers. O noble virgin, thou didst despise all earthly things and prefer the love of Christ to the glory of the world. Death was welcome to thee, and the holy angels were waiting for thy soul to convey it into the joys of Paradise, where, adorned with the martyr's palm, thou didst arrive at the nuptials of the heavenly Spouse. I too seek Him; deign to intercede for me that He may grant me health of mind and body, restrain the temptations of the devil, extinguish the desires of the flesh, give me time for true repentance and amendment of life, grant me the remission of all my sins, together with grace to make a good end and a happy death. Amen.
Composed by Thomas a Kempis

As we pray in the Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus: "Be Thou King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions, or whom discord keeps aloof; call them back to the harbor of truth and unity of faith, so that soon there may be but one flock and one Shepherd," so also, pray for Fr. Josef Ratzinger and the rest of the conciliar apostates that they will be converted and realize there is only one true Faith with the fruits of what you see above the icon of Sts. Peter and Paul of what Christ offers through the only Church He established on earth. Pray for the collapse of the counterfeit church of conciliarism and the scandalous acts committed over the past 50 years such as vulgarizing those Eastern churches that were in union with Eternal Rome and are now in cahoots with Modernist Rome. Compromise is not and never has been in Christ's lexicon.

  • Church Unity Octave: Pray for the conversion of the Muslims Third Day of the Church Unity Octave
  • This weekend we commiserate the 39th Anniversary of the dreadful and disastrous 'Supreme' Court decision that cries to Heaven for vengeance Woe is Roe

   How appropriate that commiserating the devastating Roe vs. Wade decision falls in a week that lists eight consecutive days commemorating holy martyrs of the Church from Thursday's feast of St. Marius and Companion martyrs, to Friday's feast of the holy martyrs St. Fabian and Sebastian and Saturday St. Agnes, virgin and martyr with the actual anniversary date of the 'Supreme' Court's ruling being the feast of the holy martyrs Sts. Vincent and Anastasius. While Monday is the feast of the holy confessor St. Raymond of Penafort, there is a commemoration of the virgin and martyr St. Emerentiana, followed Tuesday by St. Timothy and then his mentor on Wednesday, St. Paul when we celebrate the Conversion of Saul. We complete the eight day of red vestments with the feast of St. Polycarp, the holy bishop and martyr on Thursday. The point being that, though the Church does not recognize unborn babies as baptized, we can hope they will fall into the same category as the Holy Innocents who were also not baptized by water but by Baptism of Blood, something the Church has always taught and Our Lord confirmed to St. Bridget.

For the latest on the pro-life movement and the insidious agenda of the left to snuff out what God created, we recommend Dr. Frank Joseph's site Abortions - The Truth - The Killing of Unborn Children and Judie Brown's American Life League, but specifically Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey's pieces, beginning with Thursday night's Carolina Circus as he sets the record straight on the real meaning of pro life God commands, Man obeys and then two excellent articles "Legal" Baby Killing Can Never Be Safe or Rare and Thirty-Nine Years of Indifference

January 18, 2012 through January 25, 2012

    There are still some who are under the impression that the Week for Christian Unity, which lasts from the Double Major Feast of St. Peter's Chair at Rome on this Wednesday, January 18th until the Double Major Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul on the following Monday, January 25th, is a concoction of the Vatican II church. Au contraire, for it had been in vogue prior to Vatican II for true oecumenism - conversion, if you will and the antiphon prayer below illustrates this because it definitely does not call for dialogue but rather conversion to the True Faith by those outside the Faith. And, as we all know from the thrice-proclaimed dogma Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus, Outside the Church there is No Salvation!

    These eight days of solemn prayer for Unity possess a doctrinal significance which is of critical importance. As Catholics know, one of the chief essential "Marks" (or visible qualities) of the Church established by Christ is that Unity for which He prayed at the Last Supper. As Jesus asked "that they may be one...", His prayer was immediately granted by the Eternal Father, as it was the request (on the very eve of His death) of His Only Begotten Son, to Whom nothing is refused. Therefore, His Church has now, and will always have, that Unity (or oneness) of teaching, worship, and government which is so evidently a sign of truth, "the same yesterday, today, and the same forever." It was for this reason that Christ established Peter as "the Rock", or Foundation of His Church, against which the Gates of Hell could never prevail.

    Consistent with Christ's words, therefore, the only unity for which the Church and her faithful children can pray, is that which results from the conversion of those who are outside the One, True Fold of the Church. Thus, each of the days of the Chair of Unity Octave is dedicated to prayers for the conversion of some poor segment of mankind which is still "walking in darkness," imploring that they may open their hearts to God's grace, and return to the true Shepherd of their souls. This is the exercise of true charity. To imagine, as do the liberal ecumenists of our day, that we can achieve "unity" by pretending that those outside the Church do not stand in desperate need of conversion, is to deny the foundation of Christ's True Church, and to renounce the very reason for the heroic apostolic labors and martyrdom of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul.

    (Official Octave Prayer)

    ANTIPHON: "That they all may be one, as Thou, Father, in Me and I in Thee; that they also may be one in Us; that the world may believe that Thou has sent Me." (John 17: 21)

      V. I say unto thee that thou art Peter
      R. And upon this Rock I will build My Church.

    Let us pray. O Lord Jesus Christ, Who saidst unto Thine Apostles: Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you; regard not our sins, but the faith of Thy Church, and vouchsafe to grant unto Her that peace and unity which are agreeable to Thy Will. Who livest and reignest God forever and ever. Amen.

      An indulgence of 300 days during the octave of prayers for the unity of the Church, from the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter in Rome to the feast of the Conversion of St. Paul. A Plenary Indulgence on the usual conditions at the end of the devout exercise.
Time? We have little of it as politics really heat up and the answers to true freedom and free speech cannot be found through the Republicans, nor the Democrats nor Libertarians, but rather only through Catholic truth as Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey so adroitly points out and nails with the quote of the venerable Cardinal Pie of Poitiers, the same city from which came the holy Doctor of the Church St. Hilary, whose feast we just celebrated on Saturday: "To say Jesus Christ is the God of individuals and of families, but not the God of peoples and of societies, is to say that He is not God. To say that Christianity is the law of individual man and is not the law of collective man, is to say that Christianity is not divine. To say that the Church is the judge of private morality, but has nothing to do with public and political morality, is to say that the Church is not divine." That says it all as Tom explains in his piece Broken Clocks Are Wrong 1438 of 1440 Minutes Each Day

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.

    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.
