In this final issue of April, we close out with the feast of St. Catherine of Siena with the Mass of Dilexisti. She definitely connected the dots to convince the Pope to return to Rome from Avignon. One would have to know the historical times, feuds and treachery of the Italian families and the politics of France and Rome, and the rest of Europe for that matter, to realize how difficult a task she was faced with, but instead of waiting for others she realized God had placed her in that time from all eternity to do His will and effect the return through her endeavors. So, too, today we are faced with a crisis far worse than what Catherine and her fellow faithful faced for we fight against the Great Apostasy. One of the greatest obstacles is convincing Catholics both conciliar and neo-trads that they need to connect the dots. The former go along with anything because, like the boiled frog syndrome, they have no clue they've been cooked; while the latter stubbornly cling to the possibility that Mr. Bergoglio the unFrancis could actually be legitimate when, in truth, he isn't Catholic at all, let alone a cleric, and definitely no Pope. Griff Ruby presents the question that is so obvious in his fifth part of "Sedes Say So!" with Where IS the Church? To finish out this month we also provide a 14-minute sermon by Bishop Daniel Dolan for the feast of St. Catherine and the observance of devotion to Dr. Baby Jesus as His Excellency explains in St. Catherine of Siena and Baby Doctor Jesus courtesy of Also today Day Three of Preparation for Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary in the 33-Day Preparation up to the Queenship of Mary.

   We want to thank our readers for their patience in this weekend and yesterday. We could not upload our files into our remote FTP and it was truly frustrating. We tried several things, but no luck until we learned that we had maximized our allocated space on the server. Once that was discovered our server was doubled to avert that problem in the future. It's a testimony of how many pages and files we have on line and available to purview at Ports of Call. We want to shout out a kudos to Paul and his crew for clearing up the problem. Mucho gratias, merci beaucoup, grazie. Because of other circumstances that have cropped up in the last month we must leave the following on line and beg your assistance as we ask from our hearts to your hearts, dear readers:

    Dear Readers,

       In order to keep this in front of you that we truly are in need, we will keep this on until we can reach our necessary goal. 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 as a bonafide 501c(3) with the tax-exempt ID 58-1976694.

        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.

        It is difficult to do our part to Save All Necessary Catholic Traditions in the United States (SANCTUS), as well as the world, when there is so little coming in. 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

  • You wouldn't believe it if you hadn't heard it from yet another apostate German 'archbishop' who made a blatant public heresy on television back in 2009 and just uncovered by NovusOrdoWatch of a GloriaTV report where Robert Zollitsch of Frieberg stated that Christ did not die in expiation for our sins. Yeah, he actually said there's no atonement, but rather Jesus suffered all He did in "solidarity" with those who suffer. You see it was all for political expediency, not salvation! Wow, is this guy a piece of work or what?! But then he's typical of most of the rest of the CONciLIAR cabal. BTW, this denier was one of the loudest critics of Bishop Richard Williamson over His Excellency's historical opinion when Germany and BeneRatz were railing against the former SSPX true Bishop. See gloriatv reveals an Apostate to the core

  • Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey reminds those neo-trads, who seem to "get a thrill up their legs" as they stretch to justify Mr. Bergoglio the unFrancis as 'legitimate', to read between the lines and you'd realize who he really is; definitely NOT a Catholic, let alone a 'pope'! 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

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.

Griff Ruby presents part five of his series and points out that the title of this installment is very easy to answer, and yet it seems to be the biggest hurdle for both sedevacantists and non-sedevacantists to arrive at in a meeting of the minds to where cohesive arguments can be submitted without emotional outbursts or condemnations. After all the sedevacantist position is a theological opinion. Yes, an "opinion" which carries no doctrinal weight, yet explains the only alternative as to why the doctrines have been altered; something no true Catholic pope or any Catholic could ever dare do. You see, dogmas and doctrines are not open to discussion like theological opinions are. No, the former are set in stone and handed down through Divine Revelation and Tradition. What many sedevacantists fail to do is convey convincing arguments that prove the Church is very much alive today, and we're not talking about the CONciLIAR church formed at Vatican Two, but rather the true Church with true, valid, and authorized priests to teach, lead, and sanctify souls through confecting all sacraments including the holy Sacrament of the Altar. It's not a matter of numbers, but provenance. If only more had the grace to connect the dots, the numbers would take care of themselves because more would come to the realization of WHERE the Church truly exists and flee the false church. Griff explains in part five Where IS the Church?

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'!
