Yes, we are finally back to publishing daily. We are still not at full strength and still a few vital software programs short but we marshal on. We ask your indulgence if some of the fonts do not match up, especially in the propers where the Latin accents do not translate as they should since the special typefont we had was destroyed. We are in search of the right font to correct these.

       We do have to admit we're disappointed that other than a few new small donations, our desperate plea was answered only by those who always give and to them, even though we have acknowledged them, we thank them again and assure them that without them we would not be able to publish or reach souls. What if we did not have those few wonderful benefactors? Would you, dear reader, be willing to pick up the slack so we could continue this apostolate of spreading the Word through the Truths and Traditions of holy Mother Church? Too many think 'well, the other guy will help, I don't need to' and that seems like the climate today with the apathy we've discovered even though we came in just five visitors shy of 90,000 for December with well over a million and a quarter hits from 123 countries. We know you are out there reading. The stats verify that. But are traditional Catholics really freeloaders? We'd like to think they aren't, but your response is disheartening. Is it really asking so much to pledge a little each month? Our track record over the past 22 years should prove we're here to stay and have never shortchanged anyone. If we say it and publish it, you can take it to the bank. Be kind of nice to go to the bank a little more often so we can offer more features and take advantage of the broadcasting possibilities. Without funds that is not possible.

        Also not possible is reaching anyone who was in our email address book after our computer crashed in mid November. Again, we ask, please email us so we can resume communication. We thank the wonderful work David has done in keeping you up to date with devotions and the liturgy on the DailyCatholic Twitter page and encourage you to follow us on Twitter. Because of spam we can no longer receive email at or Thus, please send to We thank you in advance as we resume with our 22nd year of publishing, the last 15 years on the web. Other than no one has been on line longer. The fruits of conversions have made it all worthwhile, but it does not pay the bills to keep publishing. We think you understand and pray you'll respond. May you have a blessed and grace-filled Christmastide during this Time after Epiphany.

Griff Ruby returns for the new year by finishing up what he began last fall but we were unable to bring you because of our computer problems. Better late than never and this third part is packed with valuable virtues that will help everyone. Living our Faith is what every real Christian work is all about. We are not climbing some ladder to Heaven on our own strength or will, but accepting the hand upwards that only God can extend to us. We must receive that hand, and having received it, clasp it firmly as God works with us to draw us upwards out of being mired in our sins. We shall stand alone at our Particular Judgment and how we lived on this earth will determine the nature of where we end up. The will of God in our lives is our sanctification, by which alone we are befitted for Heaven. Is there any other way? Griff explains in Part Three of Earning our Salvation or Living our Faith?

       How fitting that the first feast after Epiphany honors the Holy Family. For throughout the centuries the greatest model to emulate is the Son of God, then His Immaculate Mother Mary and finally the cooperator of all God deigned, holy St. Joseph, universal patron of the Church his foster Son established upon this earth several years after Joseph was rewarded with eternal life. Each of this triumverate melded into the perfect family to set the example of how man can live in harmony. Unfortunately, man didn't follow the perfect formula because of his own fallen human nature and sinful ways. What we have today is the antithesis of the Holy Family with abortion, divorce and adultery the norm as satan has twisted the natural law to even sink to the depths of same-sex marriage being accepted as normal. Has anyone told them what God thinks of such aberrations? Hint: Sodom and Gomorrah. Despite the trend to offend Him in every way possible in order to please man, traditional Catholics today are swimming upstream but they realize it's the only way to stay afloat as everyone else is being swallowed heading downstream toward the torrents of hell. That is why we must always call upon the Holy Family for keeping our souls above water and pray the waters of Baptism, that are highlighted later this week with the Baptism of the Lord, will save more souls who will have the grace to defy the devil and help dam up the neverending flow toward eternal damnation. Let us begin the Time after Epiphany by calling upon the Holy Family with the inspiring liturgy of Holy Family Sunday

   We begin the new year with the Haydock Commentary for Holy Family Sunday provided by John Gregory. For this First Sunday after Epiphany, and still Within the Octave, the focus is on the love of God and God's love for us shown so beautifully in the fifth Joyful Mystery of the Finding of the Child Jesus in the Temple. Here we see the obedience He gave to His earthly parents in exhibiting the kind of humility expected of each of His children in obedience to God and the rightful superiors God places in our care asking us to have charity in our hearts as we can see from St. Paul's epistle in bearing with one another in love for charity is the paramount virtue and these virtues are exalted in both Epistle and Gospel in And He was subject to them

In this last week former Senator Rick Santorum has seemingly come out of nowhere to contend for the Republican nomination for POTUS. While he remains a naturalist just as Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey has pointed out that all of the candidates are, he is the closest thing to leaning toward the ultimate goal of the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ. Lately progressives and conciliar Modernists have attacked him for opposing "social justice" while standing firm for the sanctity of life. They have even labeled him a "papist". If only they realized he was more Catholic than the American 'bishops' or the man they call pope today. After all he does attend the Latin Mass (source: Washington Post) If only Rick would truly study his Faith and realize the modern Church is not Catholic. Aside from that, what he could do is use Father Benedict Hughes' excellent sermon (provided by Traditional Catholic Sermons) for Holy Family Sunday in Santorum's campaigns for it speaks of all that ails society and provides the cure. You'll agree once you hear Father's words Families Modeled on the Holy Family

    On the Feast of Corpus Christi we launched a DailyCatholic Twitter page. Thanks to the help of David, webmaster of 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.
