Today is the Double Major Feast of the Apparition of St. Michael the Archangel with the Mass Benedicite, Dominum in commemoration of where he appeared on the mountain of Monte Gargano in Apulia requesting a church be erected there in honor of God's right-hand warrior and all the angels. This was long before he appeared again in the Vatican late in the 19th Century to Pope Leo XIII, prompting His Holiness to compose the powerful Prayers to St. Michael that have been so suppressed by the Modernists. It was the angels who eagerly anticipated Christ's Ascension into Heaven as, on this Vigil of the Ascension we can imagine Our Lord giving last minute, so to speak, instructions and encouragement as related in the Gospel of St. Matthew 28 before He would elevate and disappear into the clouds. It is also the salutation for His Blessed Mother today as we honor her as Queen of Angels and realize that The eyes of Faith are seen from the heart for the majestic Iris represents Faith on this final day of Rogation Days

    We remind you again to pray for the repose of the soul of a man who lived the virtue of humility, was as wise as a serpent and simple as a dove in turning many souls back to the true path through his works and his life - Patrick Henry Omlor, a pioneering champion of the traditional movement, who passed away on May 2 in Perth, Australia at the age of 81. His funeral Requiem Mass will be Friday (tomorrow in Australia) at 11:30 a.m. in Perth with Fr. Julian Gilchrist officiating and burial services in the Roman Catholic section of the Karrakatta Cemetery. For more on this giant of preserving the truths and traditions of holy Mother Church, see Trailblazer for Truth and Tradition. We also encourage you to offer your own personal condolences on the family's Guest Book. For those wishing to pray the Mass you can go to Requiem Mass on the Day of Burial.

    And finally, because of other circumstances that have cropped up in the last month we must leave the following on line for a while longer. Though we have received one generous donation, there have been very few others who have responded. We have received a few small donations and we will acknowledge you by email as soon as we can and thank you. For the rest, we beg your help 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

There are a couple of feasts of St. Michael in the Liturgy. Very ancient is the commemoration of the dedication of the celebrated Lombard sanctuary on Sant' Angelo on Monte Gargano in Apulia, near the ancient Sipontum. There is a tradition that St. Michael appeared on this mountain and requested that a church be erected to him and all the angels. In the Old and the New Testament St. Michael, in the struggle against the Evil One, is always depicted as the invincible champion of God. The mystery of iniquity which, according to St. Paul, shall be boldly revealed in the last ages of the world and which has already begun its work of perversion, meets at present with an obstacle which hinders its full development. This obstacle is usually said to be the protection of St. Michael. St. Michael is appointed by God Himself to be the protector and defender of the Church. After the protective duty conferred on St. Joseph, there is no work on earth of such great importance and sublimity as that entrusted to St. Michael. For the full prayer composed by Pope Leo III see Complete Prayer to Saint Michael

    Each day we feature a title and/or salutation to Our Lady in celebration of Mary's month of May and today we honor her as Queen of Angels to commemorate this feast of the Apparition of St. Michael the Archangel. When Mary was assumed into Heaven she was crowned Queen of Heaven, ruling over both angels and saints, and it was St. Michael who first appeared to the children at Fatima preceding her appearances there in which she encouraged all to pray daily her Holy Rosary and the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary and The Fatima Prayers.

For the eighth day of May and the Double Major Feast of the Apparition of Saint Michael the Archangel the virtue is FAITH and the greatest warrior in Heaven for defending the Faith is the noble winged general. The flower symbolized is the IRIS which blooms in the Spring and we must spring forward with faith to uphold and spread the True Faith, being irises who bloom where they are planted. Just as the iris is so functional to the eye, we must be on our watch against the wiles and snared of the devil. Count on St. Michael the Archangel - Quis ut Deus - He who is like God - to be our defense against satan who seeks the ruin of souls. Honor Our Lady on this day with the devotion of The Little Crown of the Twelve Stars of the Blessed Virgin Mary

In his sixth installment, Griff Ruby brings up the fact that if Paul VI was ever an authentic pope then his last "official act" in that role was the signing off of Lumen Gentium, for by that act he formally abdicated from the Catholic Papal role. Furthermore, through that heresy-inducing document, he invited the rest of the hierarchy to follow him into apostasy with the formation of his man-made Œconomia nova as something distinct from that divine institution prior to Vatican II that has always been the Mystical Body of Christ and the real Roman Catholic Church, but now only within mere portions of which portions of the Body of Christ could "subsist." Yet, also within this same resignation document, he delegated to every prelate an implied papal consent for all instances of episcopal consecration, thus crushing any argument in these times as to denying the legitimacy of the validity and right of jurisdiction to the traditional bishops, who alone legally carry on the mission of the Church as The True Visible Hierarchy of the Church

On the seventh day of May, the Feast of Saint Stanislaus Kostka, Bishop and Martyr. The virtue is ATTACHMENT TO GOD and is represented by the BINDWEED which is truly not a weed, but a flower that is stately just as St. Stanislaus remained attached to God despite the pressure of his fellow Poles and even the King. He had only one King: Christ the King, ever remaining the loyal subject and attached always to God. It is most appropriate that this also falls on the First Saturday of Mary's month of May for there is no greater attachment to God than through His most Blessed Mother for Catholics realize to Jesus through Mary. This becomes a normal process if one has a fervent attachment to God and seeks to do His divine Will, one will always be joyful no matter what slings and arrows life and the devil fires at a soul. Mary will guide us to her divine Son and we see this in the Devotion of The Little Crown of the Twelve Stars of the Blessed Virgin Mary

John Gregory points out that there are those who would choose to pick and choose the saints and theologians that they could approximate their quotes to somehow prove their point while ignoring what the Church has already settled with an air-tight fait accompli as far as argumentive discernment is concerned. Here the wisdom of the esteemed late theologian Fr. Joseph Clifford Fenton puts it in perspective in reinforcing the infallible words of His Holiness Pope Pius XII in his encyclical Mystici Corporis issued seventy years ago this coming feast of Sts. Peter and Paul. It is an affirmation that despite the Great Apostasy, Peter and his predecessors still watch over Christ's Church for She is the Mystical Body of Christ and therefore, as an institution promised divine protection, holy Mother Church is spotless and cannot err de fide because Christ confirmed that He will always be with His Church - and the only one - until the consummation of the world. John shares Fr. Fenton's wisdom On the Mystical Body of Christ

On the sixth day of May we celebrate the feast of Saint John Before the Latin Gate is devoted to the virtue of HUMILITY and represented by the VIOLET. This is so appropriate considering the great humility of the beloved disciple who took Mary as his Mother at her Divine Son Jesus' dying request on the cross, to look after her and care for her. Humility is something so lacking in so many of us and so necessary for sanctity. The beloved disciple John possessed this virtue throughout his life and in his inspired words of Sacred Scripture. It was this humility which prompted God to choose him as Mary's protectress and also preserved him from the boiling oil and afforded him, through the Mercy of God, to be exiled to the Isle of Patmos where he received the final account of the final days in the Book of the Apocalypse and was the only Apostle not to die a martyr. For the daily devotion in May see The Little Crown of the Twelve Stars of the Blessed Virgin Mary

In the Haydock Commentary for the Fifth Sunday after Easter from Father George Leo Haydock found in many Douay-Rheims version of the New Testament and provided here by John Gregory, we see in the Epistle by St. James only the penitent man who heeds God's law and will shall not fear. For God knows a man's heart. One can never hide from God and it's important to realize that as great as the Corporal Works of Mercy might be, they are hollow if the Spiritual Works of Mercy are not applied. To work out one's salvation in fear and trembling, one cannot be passive, but rather active for the good of souls as God so wills and in the Gospel our Lord reaffirms His divinity in His discourse with His apostles in reminding them that He must return to the Father Who sent Him. But He encourages them that they shall know great joy and anything they ask of the Father in Christ's name, it will be granted. Quite a promise that has been fulfilled ever since to all who comply with all He asks. Through Christ our Lord

While we have today two CONciLIAR clowns posing as 'pope', it brings home the stark difference between a true Pontiff who was truly holy and humble without shouting it to the world and who not only upheld her divine Son's Church in the face of the rebellious reformation by codifying the infallible, doctrinal documents of the holy Council of Trent including the Immemorial Apostolic Mass of All Time with his landmark decrees Quo Primum and De Defectibus in assuring the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass would remain pure in every way for all time ("in perpetuity"), but also called upon the Mother of God to defeat the Islamic threat upon Rome and all of Europe, this despite being terribly outmanned in the Battle of Lepanto. As we know, through Our Lady's intercession, Don Juan of Austria and his Christian warriors were victorious in turning back the superior Turkish armada and St. Pius dedicated October 7 to her as Our Lady of Victory, since established as a universal feast of Our Lady of the Rosary for that was the weapon the Sovereign Pontiff called all of the faithful to employ in Consueverunt Romani in evening the odds against the infidels. Today we celebrate his universal feast and are encouraged to remember that even when everyone think things are hopeless, and, yes, impossible, we can take great hope in remembering Christ's words in St. Matthew 19: 26, St. Mark 10: 27, and St. Luke 18:27, "with man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." So also in our time when things look so bleak and the Church St. Pius V so loved and protected is in eclipse. The darkness will pass and the Light will shine again. We have God's word on that with Quo Primum and De Defectibus and Consueverunt Romani

The VerbumQUO for today on the Feast of the holy and worthy Pope Saint Pius V is "ædificábo" which is "I will build" for the Latin future first conjugation singular of ædificáre. This verb fits perfectly with Pope St. Pius V for he, of all Popes, built what Christ had established 1525 years earlier by codifying the infallible dogmatic decrees of the Council of Trent and set in stone "in perpetuity" the continual Sacrifice with the Latin Mass, often called Tridentine Mass from the time of Trent, but known universally today as the Traditional Latin Mass with his infallible Papal Bull Quo Primum, assuring the bread and wine would be properly confected through his decree De defectibus. All that he did in building safeguards and preserving the Truths and Traditions is, in the face of all the conciliar church has tried to destroy, truly The True Reason for celebrating Cinco de Mayo

    Each day we shall feature a title and salutation to Our Lady in celebration of Mary's month of May for she is truly the Mother of Divine Grace. We encourage all to pray daily the Holy Rosary and the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary and The Fatima Prayers.

On the fifth day of Mary's Month of May, the feast of the holy Sovereign Pontiff Pope Saint Pius V the flower contributing to the bouquet offered to the Blessed Mother is the MARGUERITE which represents SIMPLICITY so perfect for this holy saintly Shepherd who, through his infallible decree Quo Primum, sought to make worship so simple with the infrangible Mass of all Ages - the Apostolic Latin Holy Sacrifice of the Mass set in stone by the dogmatic Council of Trent and codified by this holy Pope for all posterity. How simple can it be? This is the way it is as St. Pius laid out in following the infallible tenets of Trent, and all one needs do is follow those rules and rubrics. Simple! But it is the devil who complicates things and therein we can see his complicity in Vatican II and how Our Lady has wept so at so many who who have apostacized from her divine Son's Church.

We will keep you abreast of funeral arrangements for Patrick Henry Omlor in Perth, Australia. At last word traditional priest Fr. Julian Gilchrist, a dedicated true priest whose mission is all of Australia and New Zealand, will officiate Patrick's Requiem but it may not be for another week or so. Patrick passed away on Thursday morning at the age of 81 on the feast of St. Athanasius. Patrick, our modern-day apostle of Tradition had been adminstered the Sacrament of Extreme Unction and, true to his devotion to St. Joseph, had a happy death. Patrick was married to Mary Victoria for 57 years and they are the exemplary of a good Catholic family, sirering seven sons and three daughters. He was one of the first laymen to recognize that something was seriously wrong with what was going on at the Second Vatican Council and so, instead of just going on blind obedience and going along with the vast majority of sheeple, he began researching the causes and effects and exposing the Robber Barons who were undermining the very foundation of Christ's Church. He shared this with the world in his signature work "The Robber Church" and Questioning the Validity of the Masses Using The New All-English Canon. In June 2005 Patrick was inducted into the Tower of Trent Hall of Honor and we share this with you again, updating it as a tribute to this giant of the traditional movement with The Valiant Pioneer.

    Each day we shall feature a title and salutation to Our Lady in celebration of Mary's month of May for she is truly the Mother of Divine Grace. We encourage all to pray daily the Holy Rosary and the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary and The Fatima Prayers.
On the fourth day of Mary's Month of May, the feast of Saint Monica the bouquet offered were the delicate, colorful PANSIES which represent the virtue of THOUGHTS OF HEAVEN. Few exemplified this virtue better than Saint Monica who spent every hour of her day praying and sacrificing for the conversion of her son Augustine. She constantly had thoughts of Heaven in her mind, heart and soul, praying so wholeheartedly for the spiritual welfare of her son who had gone astray. The pansies of persistence paid off as we know and Monica lived to see her son become a religious. All she had prayed for came true. So also with us if we offer Our Lady our pansies of heavenly thoughts, she will intercede before her divine Son and answer our prayers. For the daily devotion in May see For the daily devotion in May see The Little Crown of the Twelve Stars of the Blessed Virgin Mary

That is the VerbumQUO for this Double of the Second Class Feast of the Finding of the Holy Cross Crucis is the Latin for "of the Cross", the singular possessive of the genitive and taken from today's Introit, Collect, Epistle, Secret and Communion for today's Proper of the Mass for the Finding of the True Cross Nos autem. The Holy Cross is the focal point of our lives for which we venerate and carry with us daily. As Christ showed that there can be no Resurrection without the Cross, there can be no Victory without the Cross for us. We must be willing to take up our cross and follow Him daily. Only then can we be assured of sharing in the triumph. This is illustrated in By this Sign we will Conquer

    Each day we shall feature a title and salutation to Our Lady in celebration of Mary's month of May for she is truly the Mother of Divine Grace. We encourage all to pray daily the Holy Rosary and the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
On the third day of Mary's Month of May, the MYOSOTIS was presented to represent THANKSGIVING. This bluebell-like flower is most appropriate for the feast of the Finding of the True Cross for some say it was the only thing that bloomed on Calvary after the Crucifixion of our Lord and Savior. If we should offer thanksgiving for anything, it is for the ultimate Sacrifice of the Cross in which we are saved and which is re-enacted daily in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. For the daily devotion in May see The Little Crown of the Twelve Stars of the Blessed Virgin Mary

   The second day of Mary's Month of May is the Feast of the first man honored as a Doctor of the Church. That would be Saint Athanasius, the holy Bishop who withstood the brunt of the greatest apostasy in the Church until this present day when The Great Apostasy has arrived. It is in looking to this holy Doctor that we can take great hope and courage to stay the course and fight for the Faith as he did sixteen centuries ago. It was this stauch defender of Catholic truth, this Alexandrian Bishop who persisted against the Arian heresies through numerous popes. He was banished by emperors and the Arians four times. But in the end the True Faith won out, thanks to the persevereance of men like Saint Athanasius. St. Athanasius is an ideal example of staying the course for he remains the Apostle of Tradition

Bishop Donald Sanborn presents a 24-minute sermon on tdoay's saint and the perseverance and trials of the holy Doctor of the Church St. Athanasius where he tells us of the similarities between this Patriarch of Alexandria's time and our own time and, conversely he provides the dissimilarities in the difference of the popes in his time and 'popes' today as His Excellency says that the pope is the principal of unity of the Church just as Christ is. You know who is Catholic by who is united to the Pope, whereas if the 'pope' is a heretic and the source of heresy, one must resist and rely on the true head of the Church: Jesus Christ. That is the lesson the Bishop provides in sharing the life of St. Athanasius

    Each day we shall feature a title and salutation to Our Lady in celebration of Mary's month of May for she is truly the Mother of Divine Grace. We encourage all to pray daily the Holy Rosary and the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
On the second day of Mary's Month of May, a ROSE was presented to represent LOVE OF GOD. No one loves God more than His Blessed Mother Mary who humbly became the Living Tabernacle of the Holy of Holies. Mary is associated with the rose because it is one of the most beautiful flowers of all and her special prayer - the Rosary - is a bouquet of spiritual roses that we can offer her each day for her to take to the Holy Trinity in intercession for us as her Heavenly Mother who loves us so much. For the daily devotion in May see The Little Crown of the Twelve Stars of the Blessed Virgin Mary

   While the title above honors the holy Apostles Sts. Philip and James, it is also appropriate in leading off Mary's Month of May by honoring her chaste earthly spouse for Saint Joseph is the Universal Patron of the Church. He is symbolized by the LILY and the designated virtue in offering Our Lady a beautiful spiritual bouquet is PURITY. No flower is more significant in identifying the Foster Father of Jesus and chaste Protector of Mary than the holy Joseph whose feast is always the symbol of purity, most always depicted by the pure Lily. Thus, as we noted, in some traditional chapels this feast is celebrated on the Third Wednesday after Easter. Speaking of that, those observing the liturgical calendar approved by Pope Pius XII observe that Solemnity on May 1 with the very same Propers of the Mass and celebrate the feast of the holy Apostles Sts. Philip and James on May 11. While those who still observe the liturgy as it was at the time of Pope St. Pius X celebrate the latter feast today. We offer both Propers to our readers as well as the beautiful devotion below, prayed throughout May.

    The beloved disciple Saint John the Evangelist was granted the blessing of the vision of a woman crowned with twelve stars, clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet. According to expert commentators, most specifically the Haydock Commentary in the Douay-Rheims version, this woman is the Blessed Virgin Mary, with her virtues and her privileges, especially that of her divine maternity.Thus originated the Little Crown of the Twelve Stars of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which Saint John Calasanctius, Saint John Berchmans and many other saints made it a practice to recite frequently, especially during Mary's Month of May. In order to make this prayer more attractive, Saint Louis Marie de Montfort (whose feast we just observed last Sunday) added to each Hail Mary one of the praises of the Blessed Virgin, with the invocation: "Rejoice, O Virgin Mary; rejoice a thousand times." It is this prayer which St. Louis gave to his religious families (The Montfort Fathers and the Daughters of Wisdom) as their morning prayer. He also recommends it to all those who embrace the devotion of the holy and loving slavery of Jesus through Mary. We combine with this beautiful prayer at the very beginning the designated flower and virtue for the day throughout Mary's month for she is the Queen of the May.
