First of all, we wanted to update you on Cyndi Cain's condition. The pix to the right shows her "celebrating" her birthday in the hospital. Not what she was expecting, but she is accepting of it. She remains in critical condition with an auto-immune disease that a band of doctors are quite puzzled over. They performed another bronchotomy on Saturday, September 7, but only found clear mucus so they are baffled why her blood pressure is so low, why her blood oxygen drops, why she goes from normal to very high fever suddenly, or why the scars on her lungs that were there 18 months ago are almost cleared up. Yes, it has totally baffled the medical profession. We know God knows what is going on and Cyndi has a hint as she offers it all up, but laying flat on one's back since August 26 can also develop other maladies from bed sores to the threat of being even further weakened and susceptible to deathly pneumonia. Being in the hospital that long does have its setbacks, not to mention additional costs that are accrued. We remind you of our plea to Give what you can; God will do the rest in coming to her assistance as one of "Cyndi's Angels". We thank those who have responded, but it is a pittance compared to what is needed at a time like this, and, as usual, it is the same loyal benefactors who have responded. Truly there must be more out there who have a heart and we pray will respond.

          Cyndi has always placed her trust in Jesus through Mary and this week is a full-on emphasis on Our Lady with the Nativity of Mary with a tribute from the late Denise Michele. Then on Thursday we honor Most Holy Name of Mary and Saturday we honor The Exaltation of the Holy Cross. There can be No Triumph without the Cross. It's interesting to note that the wood of the cross played a pivotal role in Mary's life: from the papyrus gleaned from the wood of the trees Mary learned the Scriptures as a young Jewish girl; then she laid in the wood of the trough in a Bethlehem stable her infant divine Son Jesus; later she encouraged Him along with her chaste earthly spouse in Their skills of shaping wood into all sorts of creative and useful things through the craft of carpentry; and finally full circle as she wept in seeing the wood of the thorns piercing His skull, and the heavy wood crushing His bruised and battered shoulder as He lugged it up the Via Dolorosa to Calvary, then stood beneath the wood of the Cross with ultimate sorrow of which we focus on throughout this week with features for the first six of the Seven Sorrows of the Sorrowful Heart.          We begin this Monday the Prayers for the Seven Sorrows with The Prophesy of Simon followed by The Flight into Egypt, then The Search for the Child Jesus, and The Meeting with her Divine Son, and Standing at the Foot of the Cross, and on Saturday The Pieta in preparation for the feast of Most Sorrowful Heart of Mary next Sunday.

          We continue with the series by Griff Ruby on "Accepting Responsibility" with part two Breaking the Illusion of Lawlessness and part three Being Our Brother's Keeper . We also resume our series on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with Food for thought to prepare the soul in Step Forty-Nine of Catholicism Made Simple and John Gregory brings us part six of his series on Monsignor Joseph Clifford Fenton's landmark work The Catholic Church and Salvation in presenting this week Pope Eugenius IV's doctrinal decree Cantate Domino. John also provides weekly reflections for the respective Mysteries of the Rosary, this week beginning the Glorious Mysteries with The Resurrection coordinated with the Fifteen Saturdays Rosary Crusade first introduced by His Excellency Bishop Robert McKenna, O.P.. And in the devotional mode, we complete the Novena of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary and continue through Thursday the Novena to the Holy Name of Mary, and on Thursday we bring you a thought-provoking vision from St. Bridget of Sweden on how God deals with kings and popes who would veer from the faith. In addition we continue to focus on the excellent Meaning of the True Mass in video and explanation, as well as Reasons 53 through 59 on why one must flee from the Novus Ordo and cling to the Tradaitional Latin Mass, the Apostolic Canonical Mass of All Ages which Father Frederick Faber rightly called "the most beautiful thing this side of Heaven." Finally, in commiseration of the 12th Anniversary of the horrific 9-11 disaster, we bring you three reduxed articles that put it all in perspective.

This festival of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary originated in the East where it is mentioned very early. At Rome it was not observed before the reign of Pope Sergius I. As Eve, our first mother, arose from the side of Adam, dazzling with life and innocence, so Mary came forth, bright and immaculate from the heart of the eternal Word Who by the ...More

When you think about it, the Nativity of the Son of God would not have been possible without a prior nativity. So many miss out on the significance of the birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary for she was conceived in her mother Saint Anne's womb as immaculate, without the stain of Original Sin. But then why wouldn't the Father prepare the most pure tabernacle for His only-begotten Son? Makes perfect sense that she would be the most perfect being possible. And if Christ honored His Mother with recognition of such respect and love, should any of God's children ever do less? We didn't think so. To put this in greater perspective we bring you a short essay composed a few years ago by the late Denise Michelle. In a tribute to this "Catholic Mom" and our Heavenly Mom we present The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary

To enhance each Sunday's Epistle and Gospel we present this special feature provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. For the Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost we have first St. Paul's epistle to the Ephesians in which he expands on a measure that cannot be measured, the breadth and width and length and depth of Christ's Love, true Charity for man. In the Gospel recorded by St. Luke, Our Lord provides the parable of the wedding feast to show that whomever exalts himself shall be humbled and he who humbles himself before God, shall be exalted. The Last shall be First

This is the fifty-third of seventy-seven Graces derived from participation at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass - the Mass of All Ages - the Latin Mass of the Roman Rite which was decreed to be said "in perpetuity" by Pope Saint Pius V in codifying the infallible decrees of the dogmatic Council of Trent. These graces are taken from Father Martin von Cochem's Explanation of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with an imprimatur. Reason fifty-third is that each time we strike our breast with compunction at the Confiteor, Nobis quoque peccatoribus, Agnus Dei, and Domine non sum dignus, some of our sins are remitted when we assist worthily at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

This is the fifty-third of 62 reasons which were submitted by the Priests of Campos and endorsed by the late great Bishop Castro de Mayer. Reason number fifty-third: Because the New 'Mass', although appearing to conform to the dispositions of Vatican Council II, in reality opposes its instructions, since the Council itself declared its desire to conserve and promote the Traditional Rite. And yet, through the "Liturgical Time Bombs" the late Michael Davies identified, we see today the bogus council's intent all along was to destroy the Traditional Latin Mass in favor of concocting a service that would be palatable to Protestants and endear the CONciLIAR church to the world.

Known as Slave of the Blacks and the Slave of the Slaves, Saint Peter Claver was born after the Council of Trent in 1581 at Verdu, Catalonia. He was a farmer's son who studied at the University of Barcelona and became a Jesuit at the age of 20. Becoming a priest, he was greatly influenced by Saint Alphonsus Rodriguez to become a missionary in America. He ministered, physically and spiritually, to slaves when they arrived in Cartegena, Colombia, converting a reported 300,000, and working for humane treatment on the plantations for 40 years. St. Peter organized charitable societies among the Spanish in America similar to those organized in Europe by Saint Vincent de Paul. He died in on September 8, 1654 at the age of 63 in Cartegena, Colombia where he had ministered to so many. There is also a commemoration of Saint Gorgonius, Martyr. He was an officer of Diocletian's household in Nicomedia and converted many servants of the imperial court. His cruel master condemned him and his companions, including St. Dorotheus to the most atrocious death- scourged till their bodies were perfectly flayed, and a mixture of vinegar and salt poured into the wounds. Soon after bound again and grilled on bars over hot coals. Finally, after a variety of tortures, they were hanged. A.D. 302. The body of this martyr was interred in the ...More

Traditional Catholics are a hunted lot. Bounties are placed with the intent to capture and reprogram souls so these upstart true Catholics will fall in line with the Modernist mentality. Of course, when any Traditional Catholic balks at such heretical nonsense, it sends the conciliar mob into a frenzy, a maddening one at that. So they try the same technique they employed in eclipsing the true Church at Vatican II: Infiltrate, sow division and doubt by casting aspersions against this traditional priest or that true bishop or even devout laity because they know the Traditional Bishops have the true authority handed down by Christ to teach, sanctify and rule. But they can't allow true Catholics to know that, so they employ their Saul Alinsky type tactics of isolating, ridiculing and persecuting in order to intimidate true Catholics into subjection or staying put in their own catacombs. Don't you dare try to unite the movement. Don't you dare acknowledge other priests or bishops or there will be hell to pay. Anything to fan the flames of discord because their master is a long-time expert with infernos and he'll encourage home-aloners to stay home, a few traditional prelates to refuse sacraments to some, and keep resist, yet recognize ones on the fence. Oh, the devil is clever and his disciples grow ever more arrogant, but when the true whistleblowers expose the man-made straw castles in Rome and every diocese, well it's katy-bar-the-door and all hell breaks loose. Their desperate mission: Destroy Traditional Catholicism at any cost. Griff makes the case in part two Breaking the Illusion of Lawlessness

We begin today the Seven Dolors of Our Sorrowful Mother leading to the feast which is the signature feast of this month's dedication. Each day we feature one of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary along with the Prayers for that Sorrow. We start with the First Dolor of Simeon's Prophecy. Mary took the infant Jesus to the temple, according to the law of Moses, presenting Him for the circumcision of all male Jews, as well as for her own purification according to the law, even though she was and remained always inviolate. While in the temple, Simeon approached the Holy Family. He beheld the infant and knew, through the Holy Ghost, that this was truly the fulfillment of God's covenant with His people. And he uttered the words of the Canticle of Simeon, which Holy Mother Church prays every night in Compline, "Now Thou dost dismiss Thy servant, O Lord, according to Thy word in peace; because my eyes have seen Thy salvation, " Then, after praising God for the Messiah, Simeon turns to Mary, so modest, so humble, and prophesies to her in these words, which must have started her deep contemplation of ...More on The Prophecy of Simeon

This is the fifty-four of seventy-seven Graces derived from participation at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass - the Mass of All Ages - the Latin Mass of the Roman Rite which was decreed to be said "in perpetuity" by Pope Saint Pius V in codifying the infallible decrees of the dogmatic Council of Trent. These graces are taken from Father Martin von Cochem's Explanation of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with an imprimatur. Reason fifty-four is that if we would hear Holy Mass in a state of mortal sin, God offers us the grace of conversion so that we would be more open to going to confession to cleanse our soul so that we can regain sanctifying grace.

This is the fifty-four of 62 reasons which were submitted by the Priests of Campos and endorsed by the late great Bishop Castro de Mayer. Reason number fifty-four: Because the Traditional Latin Mass of Pope St. Pius V has never been legally abrogated and therefore remains a true rite of the Roman Catholic Church by which the faithful may fulfill their Sunday obligation, whereas the Novus Ordo is a man-made concoction devoid of the sacrificial nature in following the Lutheran supper model where there can be no confection of the sacrament since those who altered it would incur, as St. Pius V said, "the wrath of Almighty God, and His Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul."

Born at Sant' Angelo, near Fermo, in the March of Ancona, around the year 1246, Saint Nicholas Tolentino was devote to the devout life. He is often depicted in the black habit of the Hermits of St. Augustine --a star above him or on his breast, a lily, or a crucifix garlanded with lilies, in his hand. Sometimes, instead of the lily, he holds a vial filled with money or bread. His parents, said to have been called Compagnonus de Guarutti and Amata de Guidiani (these surnames may merely indicate their birth-places), were pious folk, perhaps gentle born, living content with a small substance. Nicholas was born in response to prayers, his mother a model of holiness. He excelled so much in his studies that even before they were over he was made a canon of St. Savior's church; but hearing a sermon by a hermit of St. Augustine upon the text: "Nolite diligere mundum, nec ea quae sunt in mundo, quia mundus transit et concupiscentia ejus", he felt a call to embrace the religious life. He besought the hermit for admittance into ...More

The Mass is well underway, the sincere faithful in the state of grace have been cleansed of venial sin. Now comes the Word. While the CONciLIAR church has placed way too much on the Word in sacrificing the sacrifical aspect of the Mass, they might like to know that holy Mother Church in all her wisdom over the first 2000 years, already had in place the key elements of Sacred Scripture with additional prayers to complement the epistles and gospels. First food for thought, then food for the soul. After fasting the necessary duration before Holy Mass, we should be hungry for both. In this step we have gleaned much from the out-of-print book The Glories and Triumphs of the Catholic Church published in 1907 by Benziger Brothers during the pontificate of the holy Pope St. Pius X. You can see the tone and purity of the Holy Sacrifice, well before progressivism took over in the attempt to suffocate and starve the faithful of the true Faith's true means of worship. Food for thought to prepare the soul

We continue today with the second of the Seven Dolors of Our Sorrowful Mother with terrifying Flight into Egypt. Think about it and how Joseph's trust is such an understatement here. Flee into a totally pagan country? To the very land out of which Almighty God had brought the nation of Israel after a long captivity? But Mary did not complain. She did not grump. She did not ask Joseph if he was sure it was an angel that had told him to flee. Mary trusted totally in God, and knew God worked in her husband in this manner. She respected the hierarchical structure of the family as God so deigned. Together they fled to Egypt confident God would protect them, not knowing how long they would be there in this foreign land which must have seemed endless months, until the angel once again came to Joseph and told him it was now safe to return to Nazareth, for Herod was dead. Joyous news to be sure, but news that meant ...More on The Flight into Egypt

This is the fifty-fifth of seventy-seven Graces derived from participation at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass - the Mass of All Ages - the Latin Mass of the Roman Rite which was decreed to be said "in perpetuity" by Pope Saint Pius V in codifying the infallible decrees of the dogmatic Council of Trent. These graces are taken from Father Martin von Cochem's Explanation of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with an imprimatur. Reason fifty-five is that is that if we hear Holy Mass in a state of grace and assist at such a Mass as it was decreed with no changes to the Ordinary of the Mass (which the Novus Ordo gutted), then God gives augmentation of grace to those who are devout.

This is the fifty-fifth of 62 reasons which were submitted by the Priests of Campos and endorsed by the late great Bishop Castro de Mayer. Reason number fifty-five: Because Pope St. Pius V granted a perpetual indult, valid "for always," as in "forever" "in perpetuity" to celebrate the Traditional Latin Mass freely, licitly, without scruple of conscience, punishment, sentence or censure as so stated in his infallible Papal Bull Quo Primum. No bishop, no priest and no false pope can overide that perpetual indult for this everlasting celebret. To do so only proves those who embrace the Novus Ordo have gone against Christ's Church.

In the Gospel for the Sixteenth Sunday After Pentecost the supernatural life of our souls requires that the grace of God should always go before us and accompany us (Collect). To Him therefore be ...more

There is also a commemoration of Saint Protus and Saint Hyacinth (not to be confused with the St. Hyacinth of August 17). They were both Martyrs during the persecution of Valerian (257-9). The day of their annual commemoration is mentioned in the "Depositio Martyrum" in the chronographia for 354 (Ruinart, "Acta martyrum", ed. Tatisbon, 632) under 11 September. The chronographia also mentions their graves, in the Coemeterium of Basilla on the Via Salaria, later the Catacomb of St. Hermes. The Itineraries and other early authorities likewise give this place of burial (De Rossi, "Roma sotterranea", I, 176-7). In 1845 Father Marchi discovered the still undisturbed grave of St. Hyacinth in a crypt of the above-mentioned catacomb. It was a small square niche in which lay the ashes and pieces of burned bone wrapped in the remains of costly stuffs (Marchi, "Monumenti primitivi: I, Architettura della Roma sotterranea cristina", Rome, 1844, ...more

Eighth Day of

Day Three of

In Msgr. Joseph Clifford Fenton's list of eight documents on salvation, in his work "The Catholic Church and Salvation" he applies Pope Eugene IV's landmark Cantate Domino towards the end of the Council of Florence. It is well to remember that the teaching of Cantate Domino is not that men must actually become members of the Church in order to attain to eternal salvation. The document insists that pagans, Jews, heretics, and schismatics will not be saved unless, before the end of their lives they are joined (aggregate) to the one true Church. It is Catholic doctrine now, and it was Catholic doctrine when Cantate Domino was written, that a man who is in the Church in the sense that he sincerely, even though only implicitly, desires to live within it, is in a position to be saved if he should die before he is able to attain membership in the Church. John shares part six: The Decree for the Jacobites Cantate Domino

When Jesus was twelve, they journeyed to Jerusalem to have Jesus presented in the Temple again. But this was also another sorrow for our Blessed Mother. We cannot conceive of the most tender love, pure love, which Mary possessed in her heart for Jesus, the Son of God. Her pure heart sought only the Will of God, so Her consternation must have been great when she realized, with Joseph, that young Jesus was not in the caravan which was returning to Nazareth. With what haste must they have turned around, frantically returning to Jerusalem. It would be comparable for someone from a tiny rural town today to have their child lost in the midst of a city like Lost Angeles, Chicago, or New York, to name a few metropolises. Where do you look? To whom do you go? What do you say? They searched everywhere for Jesus, the Son of God, and couldn't find Him. Imagine what many of the people might have remarked. "How could you be so negligent as to lose your son? Serves you right for being neglectful. You'll probably never find him now. It's the way of life here in Jerusalem. He could have been ...More on The Search for the Child Jesus

This is the fifty-sixth of seventy-seven Graces derived from participation at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass - the Mass of All Ages - the Latin Mass of the Roman Rite which was decreed to be said "in perpetuity" by Pope Saint Pius V in codifying the infallible decrees of the dogmatic Council of Trent. These graces are taken from Father Martin von Cochem's Explanation of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with an imprimatur. Reason fifty-six is that in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass we spiritually eat the flesh of Christ and drink His blood as He directs in St. John 6: 53.

This is the fifty-sixth of 62 reasons which were submitted by the Priests of Campos and endorsed by the late great Bishop Castro de Mayer. Reason number fifty-six: Because Paul the Sick, when promulgating the New 'Mass', himself declared. "The rite ... by itself is NOT a dogmatic definition ..." (11/19/69) Which, on the face of it would be all the reason in the world for Catholics to totally reject it since the decrees of the dogmatic Council of Trent will always trump any pastoral council, including a an apostate council such as Vatican Two.

On this 12th Anniversary of the tragic 9/11 events, we bring you three articles written a few days after the attack and before we realized the truth that the Chair of Peter was truly vacant and that the counterfeit church of conciliarism had helped spur the collapse of morals and morale:

This feast originally instituted by Pope Innocent XI in memory of the great victory won over the Turks before the walls of Vienna (September 13, 1683), was fixed for this date under Pope St. Pius X It was Pope Innocent XII who had ordered that it should be kept on the Sunday within the Octave of the Nativity of Our Lady. Whatever interpretation of the name of Mary we may accept, whether it means bitterness, the lady of the sea, or beloved of God, it is still the name of our Mother in Heaven, the name which was first on the lips of the divine Child, the name which after that of Jesus holds all our hope of salvation. Many saints, especially St. Bernard and, St. Gabriele dell' Addolorata, recognize in the most sweet name of Mary the virtues and prerogatives which the Doctors of the Church find in the name of the Savior, such as light, strength, sweetness and protection. Therefore, the devout Christian desires above all things to pronounce the holy names of Jesus and Mary with his last breath before going forth to behold their countenances. St. Pius X granted ...more

Because of the theme, we combine Chapters Forty-Eight and Forty-Nine of Book Four on the Prophesies and Revelations of the holy mystic St. Bridget of Sweden where we equate the monarchial person to the head of the Church and to veer from his duties to the Faith and the souls entrusted will have dire consequences as Our Lord relates a tale of a king and how he should work to increase God's honor and love for souls, and about his sentencing, if he fails to do so. Then, St. Bridget is given a symbolic vision of the Church, the explanation of the metaphor of doors, which concern the moderation and attitude that a true pope ought to maintain regarding his own person and regarding the authentic hierarchy of Holy Mother Church, and especially about the attitude of humility. You shall see that when following God's will, His Church has the protection of the Holy Ghost; when veering from the Faith as has happend over the last fifty-plus years, those shepherds in wolves clothing shall be dealt with harshly as is just and right by the divine Judge. The dangers of a door (papacy) off its hinges

On this feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary, it was her divine Son Who must have uttered her name through blood drenched lips, gasping for air and water for the fourth Dolor also coincides with the Fourth Station of the Cross as we transfer from Our Lord's childhood to His adult years and those things she pondered in her heart had to come gushing forth as she wept when she heard her divine Son had been arrested and, through the Sanhedrin's kangaroo court, so quickly condemned through the political manipulation of Caiphas and the spineless Pontius Pilate. Rather than hiding as the Apostles did, she faced His Passion with strength and stood there on the Via Dolorosa waiting for Him as the entourage of Roman soldiers and frenzied Jews surrounding this tortured Man Who lugged the heavy wood that would be His execution tree. As He trundled into her view on the rugged pebbled way, she knew that to fulfill Her role as Mother of God, Mediatrix of all Graces and Co-Redemptrix of the world, Mary, with a pure and tender heart that loved as Her Son loved, bravely but sorrowfully met her Divine Son on His way to Calvary. Never was this more brilliantly illustrated than ...More on The Meeting with Her Divine Son on the Via Dolorosa

This is the fifty-seventh of seventy-seven Graces derived from participation at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass - the Mass of All Ages - the Latin Mass of the Roman Rite which was decreed to be said "in perpetuity" by Pope Saint Pius V in codifying the infallible decrees of the dogmatic Council of Trent. These graces are taken from Father Martin von Cochem's Explanation of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with an imprimatur. Reason fifty-seven is that we are privileged to beholdl with our own eyes Christ hidden under the sacramental veil and to be beheld by Him.

This is the fifty-seventh of 62 reasons which were submitted by the Priests of Campos and endorsed by the late great Bishop Castro de Mayer. Reason number fifty-seven: Because Paul the Sick, when asked by Cardinal Heenan of England, if he was abrogating or prohibiting the Tridentine Mass, answered: "It is not our intention to prohibit absolutely the Tridentine Mass." Of course, as we know, that was a flat-out lie as he and his successors have done all in their unauthorized power to erase the true Mass in weaning new generations on the "abomination of desolation".

In the Gospel for the Sixteenth Sunday After Pentecost the supernatural life of our souls requires that the grace of God should always go before us and accompany us (Collect). To Him therefore be be glory (Epistle). It is He (Christ) Who heals our infirmities (Gospel), and Who is our support. Wherefore He teaches us in the Gospel the virtue of humility. In a short parable He shows that God raises whoever ...more

Griff Ruby files part three of his series on "Accepting Responsibility" as he points out how the Novus Ordo apparatus continues to sputter and choke on its own heresies for if it is not of God it will surely fall. We must remember that laws are lawful laws only if they are in tune with the will of God as far as moral and right. While the United States also must face the music with its unlawful laws that offend God, it does not have to be that way for traditional Catholics for they know they have the true Faith. They know from Catholic truth that what they follow is God's holy Will and thus, they must be obedient to all laws that reflect that. They also know they can never be obedient to a law that violates Catholic truth in faith and morals, and for the most part, they must recognize the authority of the true bishops and true priests who maintain the Catholic Faith without any compromise to the heresies and errors of Vatican 2. Therefore, we have a duty to obey those who we place ourselves under for the welfare of our soul and cannot parish-hop or bishop-hop at our own whim. We are our brother's keeper and no one is more responsible than those whom we place our responsibility in; thus we must recognize their authority to govern as he focuses on Being Our Brother's Keeper

The Fifth Sword that so pierced Mary's Immaculate Heart had to be the cruelest for there she stood on Calvary with Saint John and the other holy women, specifically Saint Mary Magdalen, at the foot of Her Son's rugged Cross, and waited with Him through three long hours of bitterest agony, while He slowly died of a broken heart over the many souls who would reject Him, and reject salvation. His physical agony was very real. His death was very real, but the pain both He and His Mother bore was was a very spiritual pain as well, for both knew that they must never waver in their absolute obedience to God's Will. Jesus gave us His Mother while He hung in bitterest agony on the Cross. He knew that we, weak and fallible, need a Mother's tender care to help us through the terrible sufferings of our exile here on earth. Mary is ever ready to help us to bear our crosses for love of her Divine Son. She is our intercessor before Christ Who cannot refuse His Own Mother. That is why she ...More on Standing at the Foot of the Cross at the Crucifixion

This is the fifty-eighth of seventy-seven Graces derived from participation at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass - the Mass of All Ages - the Latin Mass of the Roman Rite which was decreed to be said "in perpetuity" by Pope Saint Pius V in codifying the infallible decrees of the dogmatic Council of Trent. These graces are taken from Father Martin von Cochem's Explanation of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with an imprimatur. Reason fifty-eight is that we receive in the Traditional Latin Mass the priest's benediction, which is confirmed by Christ in Heaven.

This is the fifty-eighth of 62 reasons which were submitted by the Priests of Campos and endorsed by the late great Bishop Castro de Mayer. Reason number fifty-eight: Because in the Libera Nos of the New 'Mass', the Blessed Virgin, the Apostles and all the Saints are NO LONGER MENTIONED; which means that the Mother of God and Heaven's intercession are thus no longer asked, even in time of peril. Instead we see where Mr. Bergoglio the unFrancis asks for just ONE DAY of prayer and fasting. Forget Ember Days or every Friday, one day is fine with CONciLIARS.

In the Latin Roman Rite this feast is celebrated on September 14th each year to celebrate the Exaltation of the Holy Cross on which Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior, died. Historians record that the true cross was unearthed by the Empress Saint Helena, mother of the Emperor Constantine the Great in the year 326. With Constantine as emperor his mother had the funds and the visa so-to-speak to conduct an extensive expedition for the true cross for it was the sign of the cross in the sky that enabled her son to be victorious - "In hoc signo vinces." Though she was nearly 80 years old her mission was to uncover Christ's cross so that all the world could give it the reverence and veneration it deserved. On arriving in Jerusalem there was no visible sign of any evidence because the heathens had constructed pagan temples over anything Christian to show their disdain. This was the signal to Helena where to look and so she sought out where stones had been piled high, leading her to many discoveries including the sepulchre where Jesus was buried, finding the tools of torture as well after she had the pagan temples destroyed. In the process her expedition nearby uncovered three crosses with the nail holes still visible and, after more digging, discovered the crude rough iron nails that had pierced the hands and feet of our Savior, as well as the two thieves. Helena grappled with which of the three was the true cross and sought out the holy bishop Saint Macarius, who suggested to Helena that the three crosses be taken to a very influential lady who lay very ill in the city. His ...more

Day Six of

John Gregory has completed the meditations for the Joyful and Sorrowful Mysteries. Now, in conjunction with the Fifteen Saturdays Rosary Crusade first encouraged by Bishop Robert McKenna, O.P. several years ago for conversion of souls and to turn our country back to God, which, with each passing day begins an ever more massive task, John begins the Glorious Mysteries with heartfelt meditation on the First Glorious Mystery. There can be no better meditation on the Resurrection of Our Lord and what followed up to His Ascension that what is gleaned from Sacred Scripture, primarily the holy Gospels of the Four Evangelists. What is remarkable as John presents all four is how each account so readily strengthens the other. Thus we commence the last five weeks leading to the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary with The First Glorious Mystery: The Resurrection

The Sixth Sword that pierced Mary's heart is forever etched in the famed statuary The Pieta. Before capturing that moment, the Mother of God stood weeping at the foot of Her Son's Cross, and watched as He breathed forth His last agonizing breath, and gave up His soul to His Almighty Father. She watched as the soldier thrust a lance through His side, piercing His Most Sacred and Merciful Heart. She winced in physical pain for Her Son could no longer feel pain. He was dead. Thus the full physical pain mystically transferred to her who bore the brunt for the sake of souls around her and those to come in all future generations. She watched as the nails were pulled and yanked from His gnarled hands and brittle wrists, now smaller than her own, and His bloody, blackened and mud-caked feet. It must have seemed like an eternity as the lifeless body was lowered to the ground where Mary sat, waiting to cradle the ...More on Taking Christ down from the Cross and being laid in Mary's Arms

The crux of our faith rests on the Holy Cross for without Christ's ultimate sacrifice on the Cross there would be no Resurrection, no salvation. Thus we bring you the etimology of the word in a special feature to help the faithful focus on the message Holy Mother Church conveys in the liturgy of the Proper of the Holy Mass so the faithful can better understand the magnificent correlation of Sacred Scripture. It is also our hope that in choosing the Latin word with its meaning and derivative more will be attuned to hearing Latin read at the altar and better comprehend the beauty of the Mother tongue. No Triumph Without the Cross

This is the fifty-ninth of seventy-seven Graces derived from participation at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass - the Mass of All Ages - the Latin Mass of the Roman Rite which was decreed to be said "in perpetuity" by Pope Saint Pius V in codifying the infallible decrees of the dogmatic Council of Trent. These graces are taken from Father Martin von Cochem's Explanation of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with an imprimatur. Reason fifty-nine is that through our diligence in hearing Holy Mass, we will also obtain corporal and temporal blessings.

This is the fifty-ninth of 62 reasons which were submitted by the Priests of Campos and endorsed by the late great Bishop Castro de Mayer. Reason number fifty-nine: Because in none of the three new Eucharistic Prayers (of the New Mass) is there any reference ... to the state of suffering of those who have died, in none the possibility of a particular Memento, thus undermining faith in the redemptive nature of the Sacrifice, as Cardinals Ottaviani and Bacci emphasized to Paul the Sick back on September 25, 1969 in The Ottaviani Intervention.

       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:

  • 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

    If the above Papal Decrees have not convinced you, then for more evidence that the Chair is VACANT and that Vatican Two and all that has followed is Anathema sit as St. Paul asserts in Galatians 1: 8-9, see these on-line books and sources:

  • John 23 - Anathema sit Fr. Louis Villa
  • NikitaRoncalli Franco Bellegrandi
  • The Robber Church Patrick Henry Omlor
  • Is the Pope Catholic? Hutton Gibson
  • Paul VI...Beatified? Fr. Louis Villa
  • The Enemy is Here - Vol. I Hutton Gibson
  • The Enemy is Still Here - Vol. II Hutton Gibson
  • The Enemy is Still Here - Vol. III
  • John Paul 2 - Anathema sit Fr. Luis Villa

    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

    Anima Christi

    Soul of Christ, sanctify me. Body of Christ, save me. Blood of Christ, inebriate me. Water from the side of Christ, wash me. Passion of Christ, strengthen me. O Good Jesus, hear me. Within Thy wounds, hide me. Permit me never to be separated from Thee. From the malicious enemy, defend me. In the hour of my death, call me. And bid me come to Thee, that with Thy saints I may praise Thee for ever and ever. Amen.

    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:
    • Confession
    • Communion
    • One Our Father
    • One Hail Mary
    • One Glory be...

    Complete Prayer to Saint Michael

    The following is the longer version of the vital prayer composed by Pope Leo XIII in 1888 after his startling vision as to the future of the Church. This prayer was dedicated for the Feast of St. Michael 1448 years from the date of the election of the first Leo - Pope Saint Leo the Great. Everyone is familiar with the first prayer below which was mandated by His Holiness as part of the Leonine Prayers after Low Mass. After Vatican II, in legion with the devil Giovanni Montini outlawed this necessary prayer and then one wonders how "the smoke of satan" got into the sanctuary? The conciliarists wanted to make sure the words in bold below would never see the light of day again for in it Leo foretold what would happen: The shepherd would be struck, the sheep scattered. Below are both the short and longer versions of this poignant prayer which should never be forgotten.

        Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray, and do thou, O heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

    O glorious Archangel Saint Michael, Prince of the heavenly host, be our defense in the terrible warfare which we carry on against principalities and powers, against the rulers of this world of darkness, spirits of evil. Come to the aid of man, whom God created immortal, made in His own image and likeness, and redeemed at a great price from the tyranny of the devil. Fight this day the battle of our Lord, together with the holy angels, as already thou hast fought the leader of the proud angels, Lucifer, and his apostate host, who were powerless to resist thee, nor was there place for them any longer in Heaven. That cruel, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil or Satan who seduces the whole world, was cast into the abyss with his angels. Behold ...more
