Shouting Sunday's issue from the rooftops was our intent, but the devil has a way of throwing a monkey wrench into the best laid plans, it seems, on a weekend when you can't get a hold of support. Our FTP server was down and we could not upload the April 28 issue. We apologize for posting today's issue late, but, well, to err is human, to really foul things up takes computers. We encourage you to sign up for our twitter feed for that was the only way to communicate to readers with our most recent predicament, which also involves an overhaul of our in-house system to prevent this from occurring again. In addition to the increased costs, we also have received unforeseen bills that have come due - due to what was described in our Low Sunday issue Getting to the heart of the matter and, to be brutally honest, we're flat broke. We told you this is a labor of love. But that doesn't cut it with doctors, technicians and others who expect payments. This is a strong hint that we desperately need your help. Cyndi wanted to drop a short note below to share just how desperate we are for we are facing...

    Dear Readers,

       We are so grateful for all the prayers which have helped Michael slowly recover from a terrible bout with fungal bronchitis. His strength and stamina are returning...slowly. To those who were able to send donations, we offer our humble thanks. This is a very difficult time for just about everyone. Taxes have been raised, Social Security has been downsized, and many things that were tax-deductible no longer are. Fortunately, for those who can donate to SANCTUS/DailyCatholic, it is still tax-deductible.

        Michael's illness has left us in quite a bind. His insurance did not cover everything, and we are faced with two bills in particular that total $1550, which must be paid in full by May 15th. We can only ask for your help once again, and this time may those who have never donated, realize that if each person who reads the DailyCatholic, whether every day, or once a week, could send just one dollar ($1), we would be able to pay our just debts, and keep the DailyCatholic going for a very long time. What we do not understand is why so many fail to send just that dollar? If that is too much, then send whatever change you have lying around. Though the postage might be a bit much to send coins, we've found in the past if we save our change throughout the year, once it has built up, we slip it into a machine that sorts and counts it, and takes a bit off the top. You'd be surprised how much a person can acquire while saving change. Would you be adverse to tithing 10% of that?

        We've passed into the glorious mysteries now. It would be so glorious if ALL who read the DailyCatholic would search the heart of their soul, and respond to our plea. It is devastating to us to have to ask when things get tough like this or unforeseen bills crop up that are beyond our control, and it hurts when it is the same few who are always there to help financially. Without your help, Michael's health will take much longer to recover completely, and knowing that bill is due in May does keep both of us awake at nights, as we pray together, trusting in God that He will touch your hearts and you will respond in kind with an infusion of funds.

        Let us pray together the glorious mysteries of the Holy Rosary, and with each bead may you spare whatever you can for this traditional apostolate. It does not go to waste, nor has it ever been used in an unworthy manner for worldly things. All we ask is that everyone pitches in this time. With Hope in our hearts, we await your reply and look forward to knowing the names of new generous readers for whom we assure you we will pray daily as we have for those who have contributed in the past. We have devoted our lives to this traditional mission to save souls and, while we have great hope and faith in God's providence, we count on you temporally as our only hope.

    In the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary,

    Michael and Cyndi

Note: Below we keep on line what we published on Sunday:

    While today is the feast of the holy martyr St. Peter of Verona and you can follow the Propers for the Mass at Protexisti , yesterday provided a cornucopia of feasts, beginning with "Cantáte Sunday", also referred to as the Fourth Sunday after Easter where we see in the Haydock Commentary provided by John Gregory that the Holy Ghost will teach all truth for He proceeds from the Father and the Son - Filioque in Promise of the Paraclete. Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI brings us a sermon on this promise, but Father points out that Christ also reminds us that our journey will not be without trials for we must experience The Joys and Sufferings of This Life in order to reach our ultimate goal of Heaven. Also, today being the feast of St. Paul of the Cross there is a Commemoration and His Excellency Bishop Daniel Dolan presents a brief tableau of the four saints celebrated on this day which is also the traditional feast of St. Louis Marie de Montfort who was so devoted to the Blessed Virgin Mary that he composed several works, chief among them being True Devotion to Mary, for which those wishing to make their Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary, may begin the 33-Day Exercise today, completing it for the feast of the Queenship of Mary on May 31. We heartily encourage all to make this commitment for it will greatly help you in your spiritual battles and strengthen your piety and help you separate yourself more from the world, the flesh and the devil just as the Holy Ghost guides us toward holiness through the example of the Mother of God. For more inspiration, we share with our readers, courtesy of, another sermon by Fr. Benedict on St. Louis de Montfort and True Devotion in which previous reliable true and trusted Popes heartily endorsed the devotion this devoted saint explained so well. Father shows how his feast serves as an ideal portal, coming as it does at the end of April, for Mary's month of May.

Tom lays it out in Please Help Francis The Ecumenist Find His Church

  • You won't believe the blasphemy of the supposed benediction or was it a flash mob mocking Our Lord like the humanists did on the altar of Notre Dame after storming the Bastille? Whatever it was as NovusOrdoWatch provides the YouTube of this travesy, there wasn't a Tantum Ergo to be heard. See Behold the New SPRING-Time of Vatican II: Flash Mob Gone Berserk

  • After Boston Bombing, New Order 'priests' were told, "thanks, but no thanks" when a priest is needed most. But then, they're not true priests so victims flat out of luck or available saving grace. Such are the fruits of the CONciLIAR cabal that needs a mighty millstone so it can be sunk to the depths of the sea Banned in Boston

  • Bigamy, if you will, in the CONciLIAR hierarchy since this false church will now have two 'popes' living in Vatican City. Kind of like the Doublemint twins - you know, "Two, two, twice the refreshment" - except there's nothing refreshing about apostates occupying the sacred grounds of the Vatican. Ratzinger to return. Will sparks fly?

  • NovusOrdoWatch links the answers to the Modernists' last-ditch defense tactic of "Who are YOU to judge who is a Heretic?" for they fail to realize Liberalism is definitely deadly to the soul. See Liberalism is a Sin

  • Irish watchdog Ian Elliot, who uncovered the fetid rot of pedophilia in Ireland, is now heading down under to turn Australia upside down in cleaning up the Aussie's pedophilia and sodomite problems that Pell surely hasn't curbed. The problem is that Elliot should head straight to Rome to clean out the festering sewer of conciliarism for it's true, the fish stinks from the head.

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 adore 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.

Hath risen as He said. Alleluia.
Pray for us to our God. Alleluia.
V. Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary. Alleluia.
R. For the Lord hath risen indeed. Alleluia.

Let us pray.
O God, Who through the resurrection of Thy Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, hast vouchsafed to make glad the whole world, grant us, we beseech Thee, that, through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, His Mother, we may attain the joys of eternal life. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Regina Coeli laetare. Alleluia.
Quia quem meruisti portare. Alleluia.
Resurrexit sicut dixit. Alleluia.
Ora pro nobis Deum. Alleluia.
V. Gaude et laetare, virgo Maria. Alleluia.
R. Quia surrexit Dominus vere. Alleluia.

Deus, qui per resurrectionem Filii tui, Domini nostri Iesu Christi, mundum laetificare dignatus es: praesta, quaesumus; ut, per eius Genetricem Virginem Mariam, perpetuae capiamus gaudia vitae. Per eundem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

John Gregory provides the commentary for the Fourth Sunday after Easter from Father George Leo Haydock found in many Douay-Rheims version of the New Testament. How ironic when false prophets and antipopes are trying to justify the Jews in their sin, when Bishop Bernard Fellay ignores this after years of resisting in order to now compromise with the devil - that we have this wonderful Gospel of St. John the Evangelist on the truth. Our Lord foretold many times that the Jews would be a stubborn lot and indeed that has proven true for still today they brag about rejecting Him and expect faithful Catholics to tow their line rather than God's. More proof they answer to the prince of the world and not to the Son of God Who alone provides eternal happiness, re-emphasized so many times, especially in today's Gospel where Jesus promises He will always be with His children for He will not leave His apostles shorthanded. No, as promised, He will send His Spirit, the Holy Ghost which proves the Filioque of the Creed as we see in today's commentary for the Fourth Sunday after Easter in Promise of the Paraclete

Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI, Rector of St. Joseph's Minor Seminary in Rathdrum, Idaho at the City of Mary presents a thirteen-minute sermon recorded two years ago and made available through Traditional Catholic Sermons for the Fourth Sunday after Easter, also known as "Cantáte Sunday" after the Introit "Cantáte Domino", which means "Sing to the Lord" and which Father addresses how we are now preparing for the Advocate as Christ promises that through thick and thin, He will be with us always for He will send His Spirit. Father provides encouragement, especially to parents who often consider their greatest cross is their children who have strayed from the true Faith. He reminds them that God judges the effort, not the results and equates the courageous efforts of missionaries who strove to convert so many and never saw the fruits of their efforts, but that they gave it their all. He urges all to not give up hope and to realize, as Jesus affirms, that there will always be The Joys and Sufferings of Life. Father also provides a sermon on a devout servant of Mary and how we can also be devoted slaves of Our Lady with St. Louis de Montfort and True Devotion

Bishop Daniel Dolan offers a potpourri of saints for this day in relating the lives and virtues of four saints, beginning with St. Paul of the Cross, the persevering servant of the Lord who bore his sufferings with great joy and was rewarded as was the holy martyr St. Vitalis who has a commemoration this day as well as remembering St. Peter Chanel, and of course the holy slave of the Blessed Virgin Mary, St. Louis Marie de Montfort who fought Jansenism and founded the Company of Mary as well as the Sisters of Wisdom in spreading the holy Faith and providing a foundation for future generations of faithful Catholics. His Excellency provides this tableau of holy men whom we celebrate for Saints honored on April 28

This year we bookend the week with Doctors of the Church with Sunday's feast of St. Anselm and today's feast of St. Peter Canisius. This Dutch-born Jesuit priest played a key role in the landmark dogmatic and canonical Council of Trent and in debating the Protestant heresies while whirling through his native Netherlands and Germany, Austria, Bohemia and Poland. He was a great eloquent preacher sought by prince and pauper alike. He served as mediator between Holy Roman Emperors and Popes. He also founded the University of Fribourg in 1580. One of his most famous works was "Manual of Catholics" and he is referred to as the "Second Apostle of Germany," giving way only to the great Saint Boniface as the "First Apostle of Germany." Because of his efforts, the counter-reformation was a resounding success in Bavaria. He was truly the Windmill of Wisdom.

There are many devotions we can practice throughout the day, but one of the most efficacious of these, besides the holy Rosary, is the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary which Karl D. Keller is anxious to share with all. There are various versions - long ones and short ones - dedicated to Our Lady and it is the intention here to share the approved devotion with Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur from over a century ago with readers. Here Karl presents the second hour of the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary: Lauds, which means "Praise." It is much shorter than Matins and can be said at the appointed hour of 3 a.m. but if one needs sleep it can be added after Matins or at dawn before Prime or, if one so desires, to say it continually with the other hours in succession. Lauds

April 25 is the feast of the holy Evangelist Saint Mark, represented by the Angelic Lion foreseen in the Old Testament by the Prophet Ezechiel when the latter received a glorious vision of the four Evangelists and their purpose which comprised the entire first chapter of the Prophesy of Ezechiel. These winged creatures, who many believe were angels in the prophet's vision, foresaw St. Matthew depicted as a human angel, St. Mark as the winged lion - or, in heraldic terms, a griffin, St. Luke as the winged ox, and St. John as the glorious eagle all with the purpose of spreading the news of the Messiah Who sat upon the throne of Heaven. It is said St. Mark received his moniker, if you will, from his description of St. John the Baptist of whom the evangelist begins his gospel in St. Mark 1: 2-3, "As it is written in Isaias the prophet: Behold I send my angel before thy face, who shall prepare the way before thee. A voice of one crying in the desert: Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight His paths." John Gregory cites the Catholic Encyclopedia's claim that St. Mark wrote from St. Peter's point of view for he wrote what was preached by Simon-Peter, Petrus - the Rock upon which Christ established His only true Church on earth for all time as He promised and as was foretold in the Old Covenant. Holy Griffin of the Gospels

In Book Four of Chapter Thirty-Nine of the Prophesies and Revelations of the holy mystic St. Bridget of Sweden, the Blessed Virgin Mother speaks with her divine Son how much the bride - St. Bridget - is like a lamb that places so much trust in the lion (Christ) that she is willing to put her head in His mouth. St. Bridget hears Christ's answer and His request to His Mother to explain further of the reasons why this is good as Our Lady illustrates the meaning to the bride of how the lion and the lamb tie is so perfectly, and how God permits some things to happen because of human ingratitude and impatience that otherwise would not happen to them. This Lion ain't lyin'!

Griff Ruby presents part four of his series and points out that many do not realize how important it is for the salvation of one's soul to understand what being Catholic truly means. It is not just doing as one is told without realizing that what one may be instructed to do is wrong. That is how dictators and despots rise to power, that is how heresies spread, that is how the Great Apostasy implanted itself in the fabric of the Church and society in our times. It wasn't as important to souls as it should be and many sloughed it off as, "oh, well" when the pull of the world, the flesh and the devil occupied their every waking moment instead of God and things of Heaven. That and the fact that Catholics simply took for granted they knew their faith. Let's be honest. If we did, would Vatican Two really have seen the light of day? Back then we could blame it on the Bishops and periti but 50 years later those who still cling to the conciliar clutches have no excuses. Griff explains in part four Your Duty to Know

His Excellency Bishop Mark Pivarunas, CMRI focuses on the mystery of the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar and the stark contrast of the awe and reverence afforded the True Presence of Our Lord and Savior compared with the travesty of the Novus Ordo with atrocities galore that not only scandalize but veer greatly from what was set in stone at the dogmatic Council of Trent. His Excellency details the reason why true priests take such caution and reverence for the Blessed Sacrament, something so sorely missing today in the Novus Ordo lodges, which only reinforce the Traditional Catholic stance that what the Conciliar church offers is invalid and totally null and void as is obvious in. True Reverence for the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar

April 21st is the traditional feast of the holy Doctor of the Church and Bishop Saint Anselm who was a crusader against lay investiture, fiercely loyal to Rome and to his vocation as a priest who loved his flocks. They rewarded him by fiercely standing behind him against mighty temporal kings. He was a Frenchman who conquered the Brits with love. He was the father of Scholastic Theology. He was the holy doctor from Piedmont whose writings and teachings became an important barometer for another Doctor of the Church - the angelic doctor St. Thomas Aquinas a little over a century later. St. Anselm was the uncompromising Archbishop of Canterbury in the middle ages who lived 76 years and is known best as the Father of Scholasticism.
