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 with The DailyCatholic.

   As you know doubt know if you've been following this publication, Cyndi Cain was in the hospital for nearly a week before Lent from February 15 to Shrove Tuesday. What you don't know is that she was admitted again on Monday, February 27 and spent the entire week there fighting double pneumonia, not to mention another heart attack because she was not getting enough oxygen to the brain, causing her to fall several times. As it were, a water main break Friday, March 2 flooded two floors of Scripps-Mercy Hospital and necessitated releasing her for fear of staph and mold from the flooding that could escape through the vents. So she is back home with in-home care periodically, but definitely not out of the woods yet with the fear of respiratory failure still a threat considering her condition; so much so that on the feast of the holy Angelic Doctor of the Church St. Thomas Aquinas, our pastor Fr. James McGilloway administered the Sacrament of Extreme Unction. We pray the graces of that efficacious sacrament will provide all the strength she needs both spiritually and physically in aligning with the divine Will. As weak as she's been, she wanted to convey her concerns and gratitude for your prayers and thus dictated to me what she would like to say to our readers:

    My dear friends,
      While I thought they had arrested the pneumonia in my lungs - bacterial and fungal - it came roaring back determined to kill me, and were it not for my husband and a team of doctors - and, of course, God, I would no longer be here. But the good Lord still has work for for me to do for Him, and I accept. It's going to take me months to get strong enough to just get physical therapy, and a home nurse is checking on my vital signs regularly. I beat triple pneumonia when the medical profession said I had no chance in 2003 and if it is God's will I'll beat it again. After all, over the 63 years of my life I've had pneumonia 59 times, though not as bad as recently or when I was in ICU for two and a half weeks nine years ago.

       Thank God I have insurance or we'd be bankrupt now. As it is, insurance doesn't cover everything. I'm sure all can understand that only too well. At present I'm unable to do anything for either myself or my family, since I'm truly bedridden for now and totally dependent on Mike. He never complains but I can see the strain on his face as he is aging faster considering the bills mounting up and so little coming in and worried about me. I know the devil is doing all he can to destroy The DailyCatholic and our family, but I also know God writes straight with crooked lines and am hopeful our readers will help us in this time when we are so squeezed financially with bills due. As I told Mike we have moths in the checking account and no way to meet them if we do not get help from our readers. Therefore I beg you to assist if you truly care. I know it's not easy with the economy so rotten right now, but you are our only hope. I would not write and ask for help if the Holy Ghost had not prompted me to ask. For what we do is always for the honor and glory of God and His holy Church.

       If everyone could help this time, it would make it easier on those few who always give. I pray you have a holy Lent where we trust in Him for His Providence for each one of us. I hope to be back on my feet in a few months, but until then I shall pray constantly for all of you and I thank you in advance for your prayers and any financial assistance you can provide in this time of trials and tribulations when the Four Last Things so come into focus. God bless you all,


   Though bedridden throughout her hospital stay and now at home, Cyndi has seldom been seen without her rosary in her hand as she prays for all and offers her suffering in reparation for sins and in making amends for our own failings. Again, I reiterate her plea as we ask once again in imploring your charity and mercy to remember SANCTUS/DailyCatholic in your God-given duty of Almsgiving during Lent. As we have repeated so many times, without you this publication, which has been on-line since 1996, ceases to exist. While we figured we'd be able to save close to $150. a month because of our move to our new home, that has been greatly whittled down because of rising costs in other areas. And with the recent hospitalizations and medical needs, we're in the hole at least $2000. immediately. More bills will trickle in, but for now that is the most urgent to keep our credit clean and not have late fees.

    If scumbag politicians can raise millions for unsavory purposes, surely we can raise a few thousand to keep us going since there are so few traditional sources left as satan's roots run deep and the trunk of his rotted tree is wide with the ever expanding canopy of evil branches casting a massive dark shadow over our country and most of the world. We need help and you - as Cyndi so eloquently spoke from her weakened, but sincere heart - our readers, are the only ones we can turn to. We do so with great gratitude for whatever you can afford. May you have a blessed and grace-filled Lent. Ecce lignum crucis. In quo Salus mundi pependit.

   Turning to this Annual Lenten Edition for 2012, most of the content concentrates on the spiritual and devotional aspects in providing all you will need to help you make a more devout and effective Lent and can be found by clicking on the links in the bars to the left. You can keep up with us daily via DailyCatholic Twitter Feed. We also provide several features immediately below:

We provide this one-stop-covers-all edition for Lent, if you will, to afford our readers everything they need to make this the most productive and fruitful Lent ever. We do so for several reasons. First, the majority of our readers do not have access to the true Sacraments for they do not have a Traditional Latin Mass near them nor do they have, sadly, access to a true Roman Catholic priest. Therefore, we provide a web missal if you will, with the Daily Propers of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with the full liturgy in both Latin and English for all of Lent plus the feast days for the saints honored over the next six weeks. We remain the first and only traditional Catholic site in the world providing the Latin Propers for each day of the liturgical year and to provide this is vital for worship is at the center of our holy faith. While we cannot provide the Sacraments, we can point you to the nearest Traditional Catholic Chapel where we can assure you that you will have access to the true holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

    You will also find all the rules for fast and abstinence during Lent, a comprehensive Examination of Conscience for preparing for the Sacrament of Penance, and the Stations of the Cross according to the method of that indomitable holy Doctor of the Church St. Alphonsus Liguori.

    You can catch up on any past issues by seeing the Septuagesima Edition or features for February and/or January.

    Editor Michael Cain wonders if only those joining the chorus of the politically-motivated mantra "we are all Catholics now" truly knew what it meant to be Catholic. If they did, they'd realize the answer is not to be found in the political arena nor in the entity that calls Rome home in this time of The Great Apostasy. While New York's Timothy Dolan sells out to Obama while speaking out of both sides of his mouth, he, among 22 new candidates who aren't even true priests, accepts the red hat at a conciliar consistory from a man who could conceivably be the worst of the antipopes yet, the man chiefly responsible for the corruption of the perverted pedophilia scandals that have so besmirched the name "Catholic." A catch-22 is a paradoxical situation in which an individual or group cannot avoid a problem because of contradictory constraints or rules. That is what we have with the crisis in both Church and State and, as traditional Catholics, if we don't shoot straight, we'll have hell to pay as Cain warns in his editorial Catch-22

    Griff Ruby returns with a series titled "Vatican on the Brain" where he points out that with every passing year, it becomes more evident that the only true bishops left are those within the traditional ranks, and yet there remain the doubters who in their perplexity actually muck up the wheels of progress and prevent so many from realizing that for the Church to grow within the catacombs and expand universally as the only true Church founded by Christ, we need to acknowledge the authority and jurisdiction they rightfully have and put the gears in motion to save souls. That goes for the very shepherds in question as well because too often many of them jam up the works themselves in trying to strip the gears of their peer prelates because too many have Vatican on the Brain. Griff explains in Part One The Nonsense of Those Who Refuse the Church's Authority

    John Gregory provides food for thought as far as what it will take for unifying the traditional movement. It seems only natural to have a bunker mentality as a traditional Catholic. After all, one tends to lose many friends when one turns their back on the Novus Ordo and that establishment that claims Benedict XVI as its "pope." But as Jesus says in St. Matthew 10: 37-38 that's the only course we can take. In so doing, we can tend to get caught up in our own particular camps and flail out at other camps who basically believe the same things we do, but might go about it a bit differently. We must consider the traditional movement as one family united in the true faith and dedicated to charity. Unfortunately, like many families there is infighting and this only sows discord and pushes possible converts away. We must work toward unifying and strengthening the family of traditional Catholics for there is strength in numbers. However, those numbers are just so many clashing cymbals if we do not have charity as John points out in his column, "The Greatest of these is Charity"

    We are pleased to introduce to our readers Bill Metallo, who focuses solely on the Prophesies of Our Lady of La Salette and how, if only we had been vigilant, we would have realized the destruction already underway in the mid-nineteenth century. The Blessed Virgin warned us and yet we did not listen. Now we reap what we have sown. This series by Bill R. Metallo, President of The Shrine of Our Lady of La Salette, is meant to wake the masses to warn of this coming catastrophe prophesized by Our Lady at La Salette; to bring Vatican II Catholics back into the fold of the true Catholic Church; and to reveal the truth to Protestants and all false religions that NO ONE existing outside the one, holy and apostolic Catholic Church can have a share in eternal life. He begins with the highlights of the Prophesies imparted one hundred and sixty-five and a half years ago that show only too shockingly clear How the Faith will be Lost

    In this day and age it would seem society relishes the sexual revolution as liberating, but if only they realized the consequences of that so-called freedom for it only shackles them to the devil's pitchfork from which they cannot extricate themselves unless they abandon their lustful ways. Today the mores and morals are topsy turvy and one wonders just how long the hand of God will be stilled before He revisits the same action He took with Sodom and Gomorrah...and today we are far, far worse than those Old Testament cities ever were. Never has a society been so perverted, so twisted, so lost. If we do not have custody of our senses, do not practice self-sacrifice and abstinence, do not heed the Sixth and Ninth Commandments we can expect to be turned to salt or end up in a very, very hot place. Those who value purity know the difference. This is explained in Step Thirty-nine on The Sixth and Ninth Commandments

    In continuing John Gregory's dissertation on the Sermon on the Mount, we focus on just two verses of chapter seven of St. Matthew that say so much. What better preparation during Lent than to studyd the passages of St. Matthew 7: 13-14 which say so much of what to expect once we pass this mortal vale of tears. It is an excellent dissertation on the Last Four Things, specifically Purgatory and more specifically Hell for there are, sadly, more than a few who are in for a terrible surprise when they do kick off and think it will be smooth sailing, forgetting that they chose the wide path strewn with roses, a path that leads directly to the infernal regions. This part deals with details of just exactly what kind of punishment one might expect and where they could very well spend their eternity if they have not entered by the "Narrow Gate." John reflects on this in Sermon on the Mount Part Eleven

    In chapter twenty-nine of Book Three of the Prophecies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden the The bride's praise for the Blessed Virgin Mary contains an allegory about Solomon's temple and the unexplainable truth of the unity of the divine and human natures, which prompts the Mother of God to respond that she will indeed intercede, but only for those who intend to sin no longer and to strive for virtue. Because so many from all walks of life do not agree to those stipulations, their prayers are often not answered; especially those temples of priests because they are painted with vanity. We must meet Our Lady's terms

    In addition to the features above we want to provide readers inspiration with links to sources that we challenge anyone to provide more thorough spiritual reading than the Douay-Rheims Bible, St. Bridget of Sweden's Book One, Book Two and part of Book Three from her Revelations and Prophecies she received which should be a wake-up call for everyone of us in striving to become better Catholics, and excerpts throughout the holy season of Lent by the incomparable Benedictine Abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger as taken from his 15 volume masterpiece The Liturgical Year, as well as the Haydock Commentaries for each Sunday's Epistle and Gospel sent to us by John Gregory who also offers thorough meditation on each of the Five Sorrowful Mysteries that should exemplify your appreciation in saying the holy Rosary. And to enhance the daily liturgy, on many days we will focus on one word from the daily Proper of the Mass that sums up the essence of that day which we have called the VerbumQUO of the day. In addition, we will link the inspirational articles of Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey at Christ or chaos for feasts that fall during Lent including his benchmark work From Eden to the Empty Tomb during Holy Week as well as the editor's equation on how and why the Mystical Body of Christ, His holy Church, is unrecognizable just as He was during His Passion and Death in a series from last year encompassing The Passion of the Sorrowful Mysteries for the Church.

   If you cannot attend the valid and perpetual Holy Sacrifice of the Mass which we list at Traditional Latin Masses on our Devotion port, then we pray and hope all of the above will enable you to make this Lent the best you can. You will also be inspired by the lives of the six holy Doctors of the Church featured during Lent as well as specials on St. Patrick in his own words on the Conversion of Souls and on how St. Joseph is The Silent Assassin

    For those who want to keep abreast of events, their causes and consequences, and inspiration from other ports, you still can by clicking the four recommended outside sites below for daily material:


As these pages load, we invite you to say as many Hail Mary's as necessary. You can click on the Rosary button to the left as well to see the Rosary Prayers in English, Latin and Spanish. We pray you will be imbued by the truths of the authentic Catholic Faith we provide here and yearn to learn more of the infrangible truths of the One and only Church founded by Jesus Christ.

Below you will find the Daily Propers for each Mass from Ash Wednesday through Holy Saturday in our Lenten Daily Propers. We pray all will have a blessed, fruitful and grace-filled Lent as penance and reparation become the focus of this holy penitential season. Memento, homo, quia pulvis es, et in pulverem reverteris.

   Everyone between 21 and 59 years of age is bound to observe the law of fast. The days of fast are all the days in Lent, all days of partial abstinence except Sundays. On days of fast only one full meal is allowed. Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength may be taken according to each one's need, but together they should not equal another full meal. Meat may be taken at the principal meal on a day of fast except on days of complete abstinence. Eating between meals is not permitted but liquids, including milk and fruit juices are allowed. When health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige. In doubt concerning fast or abstinence, consult your parish priest or confessor.
    (Adopted by the heirarchy of the United States, November 1958)

  Everyone over 7 years of age is bound to observe the law of abstinence. Complete abstinence is to be observed on Fridays, Ash Wednesday, Holy Saturday and the Vigils of the Immaculate Conception (December 7) and Christmas (December 24). On days of complete abstinence, meat and soup or gravy made from meat may not be used at all. Partial abstinence is to be observed on Ember Wednesdays and Saturdays and the vigil of Pentecost (Saturday before). On days of partial abstinence, (which are all the days of Lent for those bound by the laws of fasting) which are not complete abstinence days or Sundays, meat and soup or gravy made from meat may be taken only once a day at the principal meal.
