As we complete the week of Church Unity Octave this year, let us continue to pray and offer reparation that all may be one, not in a one world religion, but together in the one true Faith, the only Church Christ instituted upon earth and which we know the counterfeit church of conciliarism is not that Faith for, as we pray daily in the Act of Faith, "We believe these and all the truths which the holy Catholic Church teaches because Thou hast revealed them Who canst deceive nor be deceived." That says it all. Those who have been deceived need to realize that. Pray they will receive the grace to return. See The Cause and the Cure

  • Word has reached us that Fr. Martin Stepanich, OFM, the oldest traditional priest and one of the last true theologians has been admitted to a hospital. It should be no surprise considering his health and age for he is 96 and one of the true treasures that spans 70 years as a true, dedicated Catholic priest who, born in the second year of Pope Benedict XV's 7 year reign, was ordained six months before America entered World War II while Pope Pius XII was just heading into his second year of a 19 plus year reign. Please pray for this dedicated man of God who has been a benchmark for all, especially sedevacantists, in fostering and protecting the holy Faith against the heresies of Vatican II and the Great Apostasy.

       Today we conclude the Week of the Chair of Unity Octave and once again we call upon the renowned and eminent venerable Benedictine Abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger to put this Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul in perspective with inspiration and reflection on the importance of this Feast in which we have provided Exerpts from The Liturgical Year on the feast. In our present time the crisis has grown far more worse than in Gueranger's time. Therefore, hopefully this past week the prayers offered for conversion will reach Heaven and the Holy Trinity will respond in kind by touching hardened and prejudiced hearts to bring to a reality Christ's call "that all may be one." But as much as many are content to wait for a miracle, God expects us to do our part and that is to urge the true traditional bishops to realize they must lead the charge. Let us pray that God will knock them off their respective horses long enough for them to realize they alone have the power and duty to return the True Faith to the masses for they are the true successors of the Apostles. The problem is that if the true Traditional Bishops do nothing, then the true Faith will mean nothing to the generations to come. It's now or never, Your Excellencies. Please, for the sake of souls do something to unite the Remnant Church!

    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.

    Keeping the above in mind, we leave the eight-day period of prayers for the Chair of Unity Octave intentions behind while beginning a nine-day Novena leading up to the traditional feast of Our Lady of Good Success which coincides with Candlemass and the Feast of the Purification. This year we celebrate the 401st Anniversary of the Blessed Mother's messages and visits to a humble Conceptionist nun in Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres. True to the prophesies imparted to her, these messages would be forgotten and little known until the time they pertained to which are our times, folks. We encourage you to purchase the fascinating books Dr. Marian Therese Horvat has compiled on Our Lady of Good Success, the messages and messenger of Quito, Ecuador and see that Our Lady foretold all that is unfolding today. In light of that, we encourage all to devote the next nine days to praying the Novena to Our Lady of Good Success either the Long Version of the Novena with an Imprimatur each day or the shorter Nine-Day Short Novena.

    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 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

    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.
