    Each day we feature a title and/or salutation to Our Lady in celebration of Mary's month of May and today, on this eighth day of the oldest Novena in the Church we focus on the virtue of Wisdom, a gift today's saint Pope St. Gregory VII had an abundance of from the time he was the holy monk Hildebrand. This virtue is so well reflected in the Blessed Mother who is the Mirror of Justice for to be just one must be wise and she surely is from the day she was born. We honor her in the wisest way by saying daily her holy Rosary and The Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
For features in today's issue, see:


Wisdom is the Gift of the Holy Ghost highlighted today. It follows Knowledge, Understanding, and Counsel in the line of combining mind and soul. This Novena is the oldest in the Church and it was with great wisdom that it was established as a devotion for all Catholics. The Gift of Wisdom enhances all the virtues and in these dire, dark times we all need to strengthen our faith against the wiles of the principalities of perdition. We need hope to forge on and persevere so that we will keep the faith, and, though charity towards others has been twisted to mean entitlement or redistribution among a generation who feel they are owed and this is mistakenly taken as charity, true charity requires the wisdom of giving because Christ asks us to give out of love for Him, not out of guilt or because we're pressured. With these Gifts of the Holy Ghost we are able to more clearly see the narrow path - the wise path - that alone leads to eternal life by turning our back on the world, the flesh and the devil. Eighth Day of the Novena to the Holy Ghost



After his successful sixteen-part YouTube series "Sedevacantism - A Catholic Perspective" last year, Griff continues his a new series "Ecclesiology for Sedevacantists" in which he quotes from the authority of theologian Monsignor Van Noort from the work "Dogmatic Theology" - volume 2, "Christ's Church" on asserting the visible nature of the Church as Griff relates the purpose of the Church as Jesus intended, documented throughout the Scriptures, to instruct all creatures to practice the Faith through living the Faith, that through and in, throughout all ages, there is a constant, continual application of salvation for that is the goal of establish the faith on earth: to be with Him in Heaven. Such paradise can only be accomplished through living the true Faith with the specific purpose of attaining holiness. The traditional pastors fulfill Christ's charge in that very purpose and it contrasts greatly with the the conciliar or Novus Ordo church which places little if any emphasis on sanctity or even salvation of souls for they have abandoned proselytizing and converting souls in favor of political correctness and being accepted by the world. We know where that leads as Griff indicates in Part Eight: To Teach and Sanctify



On the twenty-fifth day of May the flower offered to Our Lady as Queen of the May is the DAFFODIL with the corresponding Virtue being DEVOTION TO MARY. The lovely yellow or white daffodil signals the fullness of Spring just as Our Lady's fulfillment of God's holy Will signaled the fullness of redemption through her Divine Son. Because She is the Living Tabernacle for the Son of God, it is only natural that we show her the very same respect Christ did and shower her with prayers of intercession and with spiritual daffodils in thanksgiving for what was the true "New Springtime" the Passion, Death and Resurrection of the One Who conquered sin and death for us. One way to honor her, beside her holy Rosary, is the Devotion of The Little Crown of the Twelve Stars of the Blessed Virgin Mary
We hope to reach more souls through this newest technology of twitter in the left column. It is something 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, comments and quips, we've launched out into the deep of social networking with twitter.com/dailycatholoic and ask guidance from the Holy Ghost to navigate others to the beacon we offer with the safe port of the DailyCatholic. Some have suggested we start a facebook page and our answer to that is we have enough on our plate with this site which contains well over 50,000 pages already. If someone wants to start a facebook page for SANCTUS/DailyCatholic we would be open to communicating with them, but we ourselves do not have the time to manage it.

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.
