We would hope all will understand that this editor's loving wife Cyndi Cain must be PRIORITY ONE right now. For the last several weeks it has been touch and go with Cyndi's condition. She has her good days and her bad days, and continues smiling through it all. She is a trooper who never says die nor is she ready to die, but she does need constant care because she has come close to giving up the ghost a few times since she's been home, as her husband, this editor has written previously. Because she is my top priority I have been advised by my traditional spiritual advisors to focus all my attention on her and I fully agree with that direction for she has been the love of my life for nearly 33 years and needs my help in things we both previously took for granted. As bills mount up into the thousands, I have no choice but to leave that in God's hands and hope the readers will be generous in helping in anyway they can. Those who have contributed we are eternally grateful, but it has been a pittance compared to how backlogged we are in needed funds. You can help by clicking on the Cyndi's Angels button above.

It goes without saying that as her loving husband, I must be God's vehicle to care for my bride until He so chooses when her mission in life is to be completed. It could be 15 minutes, 15 weeks, 15 months, or, and I say this with a tinge of selfishness on my part, 15 years. Fifteen is an appropriate number for it is the number of mysteries of the Rosary during this month of the Most Holy Rosary. I ask that you remember Cyndi in your daily Rosaries, which, next to the graces received in assisting at the true Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, are the most powerful weapon we can wield. For those new to the DailyCatholic who might be unfamiliar with Cyndi's situation, you can find out more by going to Give what you can; God will do the rest
Also, because of the situation above, we have posted an abbreviated edition from the feast of my patron saint all the way through All Souls Day, thus spanning from the end of September to the beginning of November, giving me ample time to devote fully to my wife's needs. You'll note most of this edition is focused on the daily liturgy, devotions and inspiring reflections, a priority the DailyCatholic has always emphasized. I leave the day-to-day happenings in Modernist Rome and Corrupt D.C. to the two most reliable and respectable sites we can recommend: Christorchaos.com and NovusOrdoWatch.org. I also encourage you to TraditionalCatholicSermons.org for daily audio inspiration as well as divine Revelation from the Douay-Rheims Bible at DRBO.org For each of the next five weeks, click the link immediately below.

September finishes up with the feasts of the Dedication of Saint Michael the Archangel and we encourage you to read the Complete Prayer to St. Michael composed by His Holiness Pope Leo XIII, part of what you see above in the headline for Leo foresaw this time of the Great Apostasy, and we pray more Catholics will wake up and realize he wasn't just whistling Dixie, but knew whereof he spoke and prayed. Say the short Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel as often as you can to fend off the demons who prowl throughout the world, seeking the ruin of souls. This feast supersedes the 20th Sunday after Pentecost, but John Gregory provides the Haydock Commentary "Unless you see signs and wonders".
Monday we celebrate the feast of the holy Bishop and Doctor of the Church St. Jerome. Every Protestant should realize that this Father of the Mother Tongue was the one who compiled the Bible even though such divine revelation was passed down by word and tradition through three centuries prior. Think about it and realize Jesus established the Catholic Church upon the Rock of Peter and only that Church, no other!!!
With the arrival of October, we remind you of the beautiful Prayer to St. Joseph prescribed by Pope Leo XIII to be recited along with the daily Rosary during the month of October, the month of the Holy Rosary. The first week of October features three feasts that have great significance, beginning with the feast of the Holy Guardian Angels on Wednesday. Lean on your guardian angel; he's with you at all times and we really need these personal heavenly guides right now more than ever! Thursday is the feast of the holy virgin St. Therese of the Child Jesus. This young nun of Lisieux was the model of humility and a stark contrast to Mr. Bergoglio the unFrancis nor does the latter have anything in common with Friday's saint on First Friday of October, the humble friar of Assisi St. Francis of Assisi except the first name, but then we've seen what this line of antichrist 'popes' have done to besmirch Assisi and all Francis stood for. John Gregory presents inspiration on staying the course in his piece Look to St. Francis for Answers
Saturday is the Fifteenth and final Saturday in the Fifteen Saturdays Rosary Crusade with the intention Perseverance in as John Gregory presents a meditative reflection on the Fifth Glorious Mystery of The Coronation of Mary as Queen of Heaven and earth

Week Three Click on the date below for that day's traditional liturgy.
This year we reach the 96th anniversary of the final apparition of Fatima. We are a mere four years from the centennial and can only say "if only". If only the true Popes had consecrated Russia to Mary's Immaculate Heart, Vatican II would never have happened. Communism would be suppressed. Terrorism would be at a minimum and Roe vs. Wade would not have seen the light of day, though perhaps a billion would have seen the light of day and breathed, something the aborted babies never had the chance. With contraception and abortion the number of souls is unknown but God knows and that is going to be a shock to those who in any way were complicit in the slaughter of the innocent in the womb. Had Fatima been fulfilled as God so ordained, the Great Apostasy foretold in Sacred Scripture would have been delayed. But in reality, all that Mary warned of has come about and it is left to the faithful remnant to keep the Fatima Message alive so that God will work a miracle to return His one true Church to its glory and rid forever the Modernist apostates who have eclipsed the Mystical Bride of Christ. Pray daily The Fatima Prayers to the right because, after all, we know Mary will keep her promise that "in the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph", but she needs our help to hasten that glorious event first promised in Sacred Scripture (Genesis 3: 15; Apocalypse 21), and at Quito, and finally at Fatima.
John Gregory provides the Haydock Commentary for the 21st Sunday after Pentecost and there is a commemoration of the holy English King St. Edward the Confessor. One of the saints who would not put up with the skimble-skamble syncretic salad tossed around by the heretical hierarchy of the CONciLIAR church was St. Teresa of Avila whose feast we celebrate on Tuesday, with the feast of the holy widow St. Hedwig on Wednesday and the feast of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque on Thursday to whom Our Lord imparted Devotion to His Most Sacred Heart and the Twelve Promises of the Sacred Heart. Friday is the feast of the holy Evangelist St. Luke and Saturday we celebrate the feast of another Spanish saint St. Peter of Alcantara.
Week Four Click on the date below for that day's traditional liturgy.
This fourth week of October could definitely be considered a Feria Week with five of the seven days devoted to the Sunday liturgy for the 22nd Sunday after Pentecost. The theme is appropriate as emphasized in the Haydock Commentary provided by John Gregory, which is "Render to God the things that are God's" and this is so pertinent in these times when Caesar is demanding more while doing all in his power to eliminate God from the equation. We've seen the most recent in the line of antichrist 'popes' publicly proclaim that atheists (you know, those who don't believe in God) have no worries. They can go to Heaven if they're good guys. Same goes for Muslims, Buddhists, Freemasons, you name it. Just be good guys; no need to convert to Catholicism. A far different cry than what Christ mandated is it not? But then Caesar, whether he be in Rome or D.C. or Moscow has no intention of rendering to the Almighty what is rightfully His. Our country, yea, the world needs healing. The Rosary is our vaccine to ward off the demonic disease that infects mankind more than ever and this week we honor the angel of healing St. Raphael the Archangel, the only major feast this week before next week's plethora of feasts.
Week Five Click on the date below for that day's traditional liturgy.
This week is bookended by major feasts beginning with the last Sunday in October as the Double of the First Class Solemnity of Christ the King Sunday in which we remind you of its importance as decreed by His Holiness Pope Pius XI in his encyclical Quas Primas. This day is also when all the faithful renew the Sacred Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus followed by the Litany of the Sacred Heart and Benediction. Those in the state of Sanctifying Grace, by making a good Confession within eight days and worthily receiving Holy Communion, receive a plenary indulgence in praying the Consecration. We also encourage you to read Dr. Droleskey's inspirational and poignant essay I Will Reign in Spite of All Who Oppose Me. John Gregory provides the Haydock Commentary for this feast in Uncompromising Loyalty to our King. Though the 23rd Sunday after Pentecost is superseded, John also furnishes that Haydock Commentary as well with "Thy faith hath made thee whole" for the Sacrament of Penance is the divine infirmary for healing souls. And speaking of healing, we all know we are living in hopeless times and Monday we celebrate the saint invoked for hopeless cases St. Jude Thaddeus paired with the other apostle St. Simon, both martyrs for the faith. Are we prepared to also give our lives for Christ and the only faith He established upon this earth?
If we are to be included among the saints on All Saints Day, which is also the First Friday of November this year, we must be willing to give everything for Our Lord no matter the cost. That is also our role, yea, our duty as members of the Church Militant.
As such, we owe it to the Church Suffering to pray for the poor souls and holy Mother Church provides a plenary formula for releasing souls with the Toties Quoties Indulgence from noon on All Saints Day through midnight of All Souls Day the Catholic faithful, as often as they visit a true chapel or church where Christ is truly present in the Blessed Sacrament, and pray for the dead by reciting six times the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be, may gain a plenary indulgence applicable only to the souls in Purgatory. This is, of course, under the usual conditions of making a good Confession to a true priest within a week before or after worthily receiving Holy Communion within the week and having the right intention of heart.
All through November we pray the De profundis Prayers for the holy souls. We also encourage you to read Dr. Droleskey's piece that sets the tone for November with Suffering is the Only Path to Triumph. We also highly recommend two poignant pieces by Fr. Paul O'Sullivan written well before Vatican 2 that are stunning wake-up call for all in Read Me or Rue It and How to Avoid Purgatory.

s 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"

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.

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."
Plenary Indulgence, Condition:
Pope Pius IX, July 31, 1858
- One Our Father
- One Hail Mary
- One Glory be...
