January 23rd is the feast of St. Raymond of Penafort who is the patron of Canon Lawyers for he was a brilliant lawyer and teacher. When the immoral King James ordered him to stay with him, Raymond is said to have taken his cape, laid it on the water and sailed back to Barcelona. He stood strong for the true Faith, gathering the Sovereign Pontiffs decrees so all would know the Faith. In the same way we should read the encyclicals and decrees of past true, reliable Popes and see how what they wrote under the guidance of the Holy Ghost has condemned all that has been perpetrated on Catholics over the past half century thanks to the heretical council of Vatican II. Pray for those trapped in the counterfeit church of conciLIARism to receive the grace to emulate St. Raymond and use the cape of Catholic truth to escape across the turbulent waves of Modernism to the safe harbor of where the true Church still exists...in the catacombs. For more on this valiant saint, see St. Raymond of Penafort
It has come to this. After all the secretive dealings by Bishop Bernard Fellay with Modernist Rome, the natives have finally become restless within the SSPX ranks of the laity and they are fed up; so much so that they have generated open opposition to any further contact with the vulgArians of Vatican II until the latter totally renounce all that has occurred since. Just as Americans oppose Obamacare, so also lay and clergy members, including three of four bishops of the Society strongly are against the Preamble and are in open revolt with a petition presented to Fellay yesterday to stop the sellout of the SSPX to the apostates in Rome as Traditio notes. Petition against the Preamble
;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
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 Third Sunday after Epiphany, St. Paul continues the string of loving thy neighbor and encouraging doing good to overcome evil. Something our Lord relinquishes to the exterior darkness in His condemnation of the children of the kingdom and praise for the centurion whose faith He had not seen in all of Israel. Faith in Christ trumps all others as the Roman soldier illustrates for he was So Great of Faith
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

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.
