       There is a lot of scuttlebutt about Mr. Bergoglio the unFrancis' 'Apostolic Exhortation' Evangelii Gaudium released in late November. First of all, realize it is not in harmony with Catholic teaching, but rather follows Protestant thinking and goes even further in attacking not only Catholic tradition, but capitalism, while subliminally condoning the pagan ideology of Islam. He's an enigma, if you will, since he's beholden to the Zionists as well. Yet, we should not be surprised that the mask is coming off, considering Jorge was weaned on Liberation Theology as a Jesuit and is Marxist to the core. The best refutation of this CONciLIAR claptrap slithering forth from once was the Holy See is provided by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey at and the excellent links and commentaries at

       It is a good thing that Bergoglio's Marxist masquerade is coming off so that more will see he is not a true pope, but rather the most dangerous in the line of antichrist 'popes' since the death of His Holiness Pope Pius XII. Everything this Argentinian has done has already been condemned by previous true Popes, especially Pope St. Pius X in Pascendi Domenici Gregis. It's going to be mighty difficult for the Resist-and-Recognize crowd to still deny the sedevacantist position and say with a straight face that the Chair is not empty. Oh, but it is. See Syllogism of Sedevacantism.

        Five hundred years ago Europe had fallen into apostasy, thanks to the Protestant Revolution. Thousands upon thousands were abandoning the true Faith for man-made sects that, today, number over 33,000 different "churches" that proclaim they are still "Christian". To counter-act this the Council of Trent would eventually be formed as part of the Counter-Reformation. Yet Heaven was already ahead of God's true Church, sending the Mother of God to a remote hillside where she appeared to a humble peasant by the name of Juan Diego and through her apparition at Guadalupe, millions were converted to the true Faith that continued to grow until the advent of Vatican II.

        Of course, we know what has happened in the last 50 years and we fear it's only going to get worse with Mr. Bergoglio the unFrancis now posing as "pope" who has just begun his "Scandal Campaign" where by the time he's done there'll be not one stone unturned to recognize the Church built upon the Rock of Peter. We allowed this to happen because we didn't truly, really, truly know our Faith. We were lulled into a false sense of security in the 40's and 50's that nothing could harm the Church. But the devil knew our Achilles heel. Obedience. Oh, did he play on that one. How else could so many be duped into believing it was a good thing to open the Church to the world under the guise of "aggiornamento"? Oh, it sounded so - so 1960ish. Ah, yes, the age of rebellion. Those long-haired hippies are in charge today and their ideology hasn't changed either in the Church or State.

        What Our Lady warned of at Quito, Rue du Bac, La Salette, and especially at Fatima has come about as part of God's permitting Will, not His ordaining Will. We have only ourselves to blame. So what are we going to do? Bunker down in our traditional chapels with the I've-got-mine attitude, or shout it from the rooftops that there is only one true Faith and it isn't in Modernist Rome any more? We believe it's the latter and we'll shout until we're hoarse. When you consider how little time is left before the NWO totally takes over in complete chaos, will you sit on your hands and just wait for the inevitable? When you consider your choice will be limited to offering incense to either Communists or Muslims, or die, which path will you take? A time of persecution is already here. Martyrdom is just around the corner.

        But we're not going down without a fight. There are so few left who were weaned on the true Holy Sacrifice of the Mass (now known as the Traditional Latin Mass) and the true Faith. Generations have passed since there was a church in every neighborhood and Catholics were respected for their moral turpitude and devotion. Just as Pope Leo XIII warned after his apparition of the one-century bargain between God and the devil, there would be hell to pay, and there is with so many heading there.

        Today the popular opinion is that everyone goes to Heaven. Oh, will they be surprised. How do we know? Countless saints have told us. Christ Himself has said it in the Gospels. St. Paul has reiterrated it so many times in his Epistles. The Church has reiterrated this in dogmatic Councils and papal decrees. Yet, just as Paul foretold in 2 Thessalonians 2: 10, "in all seduction of iniquity to them that perish; because they receive not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying: That all may be judged who have not believed the truth, but have consented to iniquity", so many have been duped into believing the lie and for that they will have to answer to God.

        We want to make that particular judgment before their Creator go better for them, but that can only happen if they are informed of where they can find the true Faith, for the dogma still stands and always will: Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus - Outside the Church there is no salvation. Period. During this Advent we refer you to ways to connect the dots to see why the CONciLIAR church is not Catholic and where you'll find the true Church today. See What the Church has already Decreed to your far right as well as checking in with the two most reliable and respectable sites we can recommend: and

        I also encourage you to listen to for daily audio inspiration as well as divine Revelation from the Douay-Rheims Bible at For those who want to see the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass on a daily basis, we recommend Live Mass Webcasts from St. Gertrude the Great in Cincinnati. Please note the Eastern Standard Time. For those wishing to know more about the Traditional Latin Mass we encourage you to go to This is the Holy Mass and we also encourage you to make a Spiritual Communion when you cannot physically assist at the Traditional Latin Mass, and see Special Prayers we encourage daily to keep the devil away.

        Finally, as it was in November, you'll note most of this edition is focused on the daily liturgy, devotions and inspiring reflections, a priority the DailyCatholic has always emphasized. As I have been doing, I will continue to try to keep up on twitter with anything that affects Catholics and try to keep you up on the day-to-day happenings in Modernist Rome and Corrupt D.C. For each of weeks in Advent, click the links immediately below. For past editions/issues see Previous Editions.

   Advent is a time of preparation for the Nativity of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Thus this Advent edition is focused on the daily liturgy, devotions and inspiring reflections, always a priority the DailyCatholic has emphasized. This edition we focus on the Christmas Novena which begins "Hail and blessed be the hour..." It is a beautiful prayer to be prayed 15 times a day. We encourage you to say it at the end of each decade of the Rosary throughout your day, which would include the Joyful, Sorrowful and Glorious Mysteries. If you can't get in all fifteen decades, say as many as your state in life calls for and memorize the Christmas Novena which you can say in the shower, while shaving, in the car, or even for those who watch TV, during commercials. What better way to spend your time?

   Besides this beautiful short prayer, there are also three other Novenas during Advent. November 29th signaled the beginning of the Novena in the Preparation for the Immaculate Conception and on December 4 we begin the nine-day Novena in Preparation for Our Lady of Guadalupe. Also leading up to Christmas we have the Extended Nine-Day Novena in Preparation for the Nativity as well as the Greater Antiphons that date back to the eighth and ninth centuries. It is the Church's way of the expressing her deep longing for the coming of the Messiah.

   We want to keep you abreast of Cyndi Cain's condition and thank all those who have contributed to Cyndi's Angels. We've had a few generous donations from the same loyal benefactors who always come through and a few from new contributors, but for the most part we are still far, far short of our goal, especially for budgeting to meet the monthly bills. Despite medical predictions that she wouldn't last a month, Cyndi is defying their prognostication because she knows God will take her when He's ready...and so she continues to offer up her suffering with Rosary always in hand and a smile on her face no matter the pain and difficulty to breathe as she grows weaker with end-stage COPD. Probably the thing that hurts her the most is not being able to assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass since she is homebound, yet she's a trooper who has put everything in God's hands for Him to do with her as He wills. And yes...
    ...and that's what helps keep her going, that readers will have compassion and give. It will surely ease her husband's nerves if you get my drift. As I wrote on these pages last month, Cyndi was in the hospital for three weeks. In being able to make payments we need a minimum of $2000.00 a month. Of course, many of wealth could write a check for the full amount or a few could write a $10,000.00 check soon and a few of those would clear the books and assuage our human fears that weigh heavily on our hearts. For those with means, it would be a tremendous tax write-off since we are a bonafide non-profit. But we live in the real world and miracles like that are few and far between since large donations are usually earmarked for politicians in a what-can-you-do-for-me mindset. Whereas, all we can do is pray for our benefactors and offer those who donate $300. or more a year the full audio/video of the Douay-Rheims Bible, which is quite a treasure in itself. In the end prayer means more for all concerned than all the money for lobbying and political campaigns combined which add up to hundreds of millions. So for those with the means, what we need isn't much, especially when no one at SANCTUS/DailyCatholic takes a salary. Did I mention that we do this as a labor of love?

    With an agregate of pledges that reach $2000.00 a month we will be able to pay the bills in full in two to three years at the most. That's still only $24,000. a year, still under poverty level in today's economy. Compare that just with the salaries of several individuals in Novus Ordo/neo-traditional non-profits and $47,000 is merely a fraction of most as has been documented by Like most traditional Catholic apostolates, it has been the same few loyal souls who donate what they can while the rest get a free ride on the DailyCatholic and fail to realize Christ's words that "the greatest of these is Charity."

   Thank you and may God shower you with abundant graces during this time of Advent.

        The First Sunday of Advent picks up where the Last Sunday after Pentecost left off as we begin another full Liturgical Year. John Gregory provides the Haydock Commentary for the First Sunday of Advent Don't say we weren't warned in which our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ alerts us of the signs that will signal His return and at that time man will realize the folly of following the world, the flesh and the devil just as St. Paul admonishes us to "cast off the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light".

       For the First Week of Advent, the prayer around the Advent Wreath, as we light one candle during the special prayers for the week beginning on Sunday. Prior to this, the Advent Wreath was blessed with the prayers: Priest: Our help is in the name of the Lord. All: Who hath made Heaven and earth. Priest: Let us pray. O God, by Whose word all things are sanctified, pour forth Thy blessing sprinkles the wreath with holy water upon this wreath, and grant that we who use it may prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ and may receive from Thee abundant graces. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. For more, see First Week Advent Wreath Prayer.

        While there are two feria days this week, we celebrate four confessors as well. This includes the valiant Jesuit missionary St. Francis Xavier and the holy Bishop St. Nicholas, of whom was patterned the modern day Santa Claus (Saint Cholas or jolly St. Nick). On his feast this year we also observe First Friday Devotions. Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey presents inspiration for both saints, Without Regard for Results and Seeking to Follow the Example of Saint Nicholas, Not That of the "Santa Clauses" Who Have Taken Us Over the Moral Cliff. Note, if the latter from last year is not the longest title, we'd like to see one that is.

       One of the unique aspects of the first week in December is the feast of two Doctors of the Church. On Wednesday we celebrate St. Peter Chrysologus who was Doctor of Homilies and St. Ambrose on the Vigil of the Immaculate Conception when we also pray the First Saturday Devotions. St. Ambrose is known as the Converter of Saints. Almost lost in the shuffle is the Virgin and Martyr St. Barbara who is commemorated on December 4. During this week we continue one novena - one in preparation for the Immaculate Conception and the other, beginning on December 4th in preparation for the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. A reminder, Saturday, December 7 is the Vigil of the Immaculate Conception and has always been a fast day with complete abstinence from meat. See Rules of Fast and Abstinence.

159 years ago on December 8, His Holiness Pope Pius IX officially declared the great dogma of the Immaculate Conception that Mary, was conceived from all Eternity totally free of Original Sin for God would choose nothing but a pure tabernacle to house the Father's only-begotten Son. The solemnity is not only a holyday of Obligation, but the United States is dedicated to Mary under the title of the Immaculate Conception. For the the Mass of this First Class Solemnity, see Gaudens gaudébo

    O Mary Immaculate! Guard with loving care this country dedicated to thee. Let thy purity keep it pure. Watch over its institutions. As thou art the Refuge of all sinners, this country is the refuge of the exiled and the oppressed. Guide it ever in the ways of peace. Let not its prosperity be its ruin. Alas! Many of its children who know not what they do, are walking in uncertain paths which are dark, and lead them away from truth. Mother of all, pray for us and plead for them, that we, thy children, may love and adore thy adorable Son with more fervent faith, and that those who are wandering in error's path may, through thy intercession, return to the one Fold of the True Shepherd - to thy Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

   The prayer above to Mary, patron of America under the title of the Immaculate Conception, is more pertinent today than ever before as we see from the daily headlines. Amongst all the filth and evil embodied in the world, the flesh and the devil we can turn to the spotless Mother of Christ, whom God deigned from the beginning of time to be conceived immaculately in her mother St. Anne's womb in order that there would be the purest living tabernacle for the Son of God. What joy we have in having the purest of mothers to intercede for us. This year this Holyday falls on Sunday. In some parishes the feast is transferred to Monday, but since it is a first class feast, it can supersede the Sunday, in this case the Second Sunday of Advent. Dr. Droleskey presents inspiration for the solemnity with Spotless Blessed Mother, Spotless Mother Church while John Gregory provides the Haydock Commentary for both with From All Eternity for the Immaculate Conception and "More Than a Prophet" for the second Sunday of Advent.

   Most of this week we observe either the Mass within the Octave of the Immaculate Conception or the Feria for the Second Sunday. The exceptions being Thursday and Friday when we celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. We complete the Novena for this feast where Mary appeared in 1531 to the peasant Juan Diego and produced the miraculous tilma as proof she had not only appeared, but that she came to end human sacrifice. Shortly after the Aztecs' beastly practice was abandoned, so strong her message, that most of Mexico was converted to the true Faith when countless others were abandoning it in Europe during the Protestant Revolution of the sixteenth century. Dr. Droleskey offers an account of this in The Americas Belong to Our Lady. On Friday we commemorate the feast of the patron of music, the holy Virgin and Martyr St. Lucy and again he presents an article on this patron of the blind, who is a light to those who have not eyes to see but an open heart to discern the truth, and who is An Immovable Foe of Religious Liberty. St. Lucy is also the patron saint of eye problems as well as those who hemmorhage.

       In the midst of Advent we take time to rejoice in the Lord as we hear and pray several times during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for the Third Sunday of Advent "Gaudéte in Dómino"; something that gives us great hope just as it inflamed the hearts of those hearing St. John the Baptist's call to repent for the Lord was nigh. John Gregory provides the Haydock Commentary where, in St. Paul's Epistle he speaks of the attributes of the Holy Sacrifice with Repentant Prayer, Adoration, Petition and Thanksgiving in preparation for receiving Our Lord and Savior, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity in the holy Eucharist. In the Gospel of St. John the Evangelist, his namesake the Baptist, when grilled by the Jews, confounds them by not identifying Who the Lord is by name, but rather by the Old Testament prophesies. When interrogated as to who this raggedy man who baptizes with water is, he answers with what Isaias foretold as "the voice of one crying in the wilderness" as we see in The Voice of the Precursor.

        Of course, this week is devoted entirely to Feria Masses with the exception of Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, the former two because it is Ember Week where fasting and partial abstinence are mandatory on Wednesday and Saturday. Saturday is basically the only feast day of a saint this week as we honor the holy Apostle St. Thomas, known affectionately as the "Doubting Apostle" from his questioning whether Our Lord appeared to the others in the upper room after His Resurrection. Also this week, in fully observing the holy Season of Advent, we begin during Ember Week the "O Antiphons", a tradition long observed by holy Mother Church since the eighth century. Said in the Office for the day, they are derived from various titles of Christ and scripturally based short prayers said from the 17th through the 23rd of December by which the Church expresses her deep longing for the coming of the Messiah. Thus, beginning Monday is the countdown to the Nativity Nine-Day Nativity Novena and the O Antiphons

       We have arrived at the last week of Advent, which this year is a short three days beginning with the Fourth Sunday of Advent in which, as we see in the Haydock Commentary again provided by John Gregory, features the expectation of the Light of the world to "bring to light the hidden things of darkness" as St. Paul notes in the Epistle and St. Lukee asserts that "the crooked shall be made straight; and the rough ways plain" by the coming of He Who will redeem man as has been foretold by the immediate precursor of the Messias. That, of course, is St. John the Baptist, who proclaims the Lord is nigh and who shall "make straight His paths".

        Normally, December 22 is the Double of the second class feast of the pioneering virginal educator and missionary Mother St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, who left her indelible mark on many institutions in the United States. Because her feast falls on Sunday this year, her feast is transferred to Monday. We complete the Greater Antiphons and Novena in preparation for the Nativity of Our Lord this week. Tuesday we observe the Vigil of the Nativity and a reminder that Christmas Eve is a day of fast and complete abstinence.

       As much as we hate to beg, we have no choice. We're back to at least doing weekly editions but donations have been way down and do not afford us the luxury of returning to daily publishing, which is ashame since it is called the DAILY Catholic. If you have benefited in anyway from what we have published, we humbly ask your help to keep this publication on line. We know that so many of our readers are unable to assist at a true traditional Latin Mass because of where they live and use the daily liturgy we publish to gain the efficacious graces possible through their prayers at home. We remain the only publication in the world to provide such and are grateful to God that we can provide such nourishment for souls. If you have not donated before, isn't it only right and proper to donate now? Whatever you can afford will be greatly appreciated. Just click the button below or send a check/money order to the address below. We are a bonafide non-profit 501c(3) religious association and all donations are tax-deductible. Whatever you would have contributed toward a bloated political campaigns or thrown away in the conciliar collection plates that only goes to covering up the sins of its presbyters and false primates while destroying all semblence of Catholicism, why not earmark it for SANCTUS/DailyCatholic? After all, shouldn't we all take St. Paul's strong counsel in 2 Thessalonians 2: 14 to heart and "stand firm, and hold the traditions which you have learned"?

To fortify why the CONciLIAR church is the false church, see key Papal Decrees that preceded it in pre-Vatican Two times by true Popes who solidly condemned the V2 false 'popes' who have spit in Heaven's Face. God will not be mocked. See for yourself what the infallible, perennial Magisterium of the Church has decreed:

  • Papal Coronation Oath Pope Agatho
  • Unam Sanctam Pope Boniface VIII
  • Cum Ex Apostolatus Officio Pope Paul IV
  • Quo Primum Pope St. Pius V
  • De Defectibus Pope St. Pius V
  • Satis Cognitum Pope Leo XIII
  • Apostolicae Curae Pope Leo XIII
  • Lamentabili Sane Pope St. Pius X
  • Pascendi Dominici Gregis Pope St. Pius X
  • Oath Against Modernism Pope St. Pius X
  • Mortalium Animos Pope Pius XI
  • Humani Generis Pope Pius XII
  • Sacramentum Ordinis Pope Pius XII

    When One Cannot physically Assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    For those who cannot be present for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, we provide additional prayers that can be supplemented with the ORDINARY OF THE HOLY MASS and the PROPER OF THE DAY to enable you to better prepare yourself at home. Of course, this never replaces actually being there, but it is much better than attending the Novus Ordo services. Therefore we have gleaned from The Key of Heaven prayers to say at home. It is very comforting to know that the Holy Mass is offered for us even when we are not actually present. But to enjoy the benefits which it procures, we must by a SPIRITUAL COMMUNION become partakers of the altar from which we are temporarily banished. Here we provide prayers in preparation for fulfilling assistance in absentia in addition to the ORDINARY OF THE HOLY MASS and PROPER OF THE DAY. PRAYERS IN ABSENTIA

    Prayer Before the Crucifix

    Behold, O kind and most sweet Jesus, I cast myself upon my knees in Thy sight, and with the most fervent desire of my soul I pray and beseech Thee that Thou wouldst fix deep within my heart lively sentiments of Faith, Hope and Charity, with true repentance for my sins, and a firm purpose of amendment, whilst with deep affection and grief of soul I ponder within myself and mentally contemplate Thy five most precious Wounds; having before my eyes the words which David in prophesy spoke concerning Thee, O Good Jesus: "They have pierced My hands and My feet; they have numbered all My bones."
