This edition is dedicated to the Feast of the Epiphany when earthly kings from the east ventured far and long to pay homage to the newborn King in the stable. The above is a rendition of the famous hymn dedicated to the three Magi Caspar who brought gold, Melchior who offered Frankincense, and Balthazar who presented the bitter herbs of Myrhh, representing the suffering Christ would undergo for the salvation of mankind. It is the custom each year to mark the doorways, an unbloody act in the same way as the Jews did for the Passover, with blessed chalk in the manner as the illustration below shows in both Roman numerals and regular numbers of this year, interspersed with the initial of each of the three Magi. It is also a symbol that, despite the sacramentals you possess, yours is a Catholic home.
      The above is proof that Vatican II preached heresy and therefore all that has been promulgated since is entirely null and utterly void. We encourage you to see the above debate provided by Novus Ordo Watch between his Excellency Bishop Donald Sanborn and his opponent a Dr. Robert Fastiggi from a CONciLIAR seminary in Detroit. It's no contest.

         We also strongly endorse Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey's timely articles, and a site few have heard of but is excellent. That is Catholic Harbor of Faith and Morals. Of course, one of the best out there is with their excellent sources and the latest digest as well as proof of how bad things have become under Mr. Bergoglio the unFrancis fraud at What You Need to Know about the Man who Claims to be the Pope

       This edition covers the week of Epiphany, and on Tuesday through Friday we resume our series of the Church-approved Prophesies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden as we pick up where we left off in September in Book Four with more inspiring, thought-provoking and conscience-tweaking revelations of how it really is with God, contrary to what man has been led to believe in today's society. There is a price to pay and we better be aware of it before it's too late. That is why we bring these to you. Also each day we feature an audio sermon provided by Gerry Keaveney of by a Traditional cleric on the Epiphany, which is the theme all week, concluding on Saturday with a reminder of what the holy founder of the Order of Friars Minor St. Francis of Assisi prophesied of the omens on what would become of the Church today. We also begin on the day after the Feast of the Epiphany the Nine Day Novena to Our Lady of Prompt Succor with the story, short novena and longer novena as well as the Litany to Our Lady, all leading to next week's feast of Our Lady of Prompt Succor on January 15.

This feast was celebrated in the East as early as the third century and it spread to the West towards the end of the fourth century. The word "Epiphany" means "manifestation." As at Christmas it is the mystery of a God Who makes Himself visible, but it is no longer only to the Jews that He shows Himself: "It is to the Gentiles on this day that God reveals His Son" (Collect). And ...More

This special feature, provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible, With the type so small in most bibles, we publish it here in larger type in conjunction with the Epistle and Gospel for the Sunday Mass provided by John Gregory with the cogent comprehensive Catholic Commentary penned by Father George Leo Haydock on the Douay-Rheims version of the New Testament. The commentary for the Double of the First Class Feast of the Epiphany shows the fullfillment of the Prophet Isaias that "Gentiles shall walk in Thy light, and kings in the brightness of Thy rising" while "bringing gold and frankincense: and shewing forth praise to the Lord." This is carried out, as we see, in the Gospel of St. Matthew that they were indeed non-Jewish kings from the East, who honored the newborn King with "gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh." Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh

Isaias in a grand vision perceives the Church under the figure of Jerusalem, where "the kings and the nations abound, the multitude who inhabit the borders of the sea and the strength of the Gentiles. They come from afar with their numerous caravans, singing the praises Of the Lord and bringing Him gold and frankincense". See Mass for Within the Octave of Epiphany

As you know we suspended all of our features due to the fact the editor needed to devote as much time as possible to taking care of his wife. She still is not out of danger but has stabilized enough for the editor to resume a few features and can't think of anything better than resuming the inspiration of the Church-approved Prophesies and Revelations of the holy mystic St. Bridget of Sweden as we combine Chapters Fifty and Fifty-One of Book Four since they dove-tail into each other. We see this holy saint's unfathomable vision of the judgment of a multitude of persons still in life, in which she heard: "If people would rectify their sins, I, too, will lighten their sentence." If only people today would understand the hope of that promise and amend their lives. In the second part the bride receives an admirable and yet terrible vision about a soul led who is led before the Judge, and we are given the arguments of God and the book's judgment against the soul and that soul's evidence against herself, and how that affects the various astounding punishments inflicted on her in Purgatory. It should wake us all up that there are consequences for our actions, especially vanity and faithfulness. We should realize we will have to make an accounting for our entire lives before the Divine Judge Who knows all and it is written in The Book of Justice.

Epiphany celebrates the mystic union of the souls of men with Jesus. The liturgy of this day commemorates a triple manifestation of the glory of Christ. To the worshipping Magi He appears as King of our hearts; in the Waters of the Jordan He is declared the Son of God, and at Cana He demonstrates His power over the elements. See Mass Within the Octave

Also listen to Bishop Daniel Dolan's sermon on The Difference Between Christmas and Epiphany

In continuing the scenes from the two previous chapters of the Prophesies and Revelations of the holy mystic St. Bridget of Sweden, God enables an angel to help the bride to see mystically an even more grizzly couple than seen earlier. This couple now stand before the Divine Judge. Bridget is horrified at the sight of these bestial features on both the man and the woman and fears it is the devil, but an interesting fact is revealed that the demon does not take a physical body for he is a spirit, but these two wretched characters are very human though their members and senses show a far different veneer that is as ugly as they come, but each bizarre distortion has a reason for it as is explained by the angel to Bridget. It is a lesson every living person needs to understand, especially when the errant thought of many is that everyone goes to Heaven. This should shake them to their toes that the Divine Judge, while being all-Merciful, is also all-Just and how we lived will be how we are judged. It did not go well for the couple Bridget witnessed. Be forewarned and amend your lives now. Be forewarned and amend your lives now.

At St. Peter's, where are the relics of the Church's first visible head, the liturgical celebration of the entry of the Gentiles into the Church takes place. "In the adoring Mass," says Pope St. Leo the Great, "let us acknowledge the first-fruits of our own calling and faith; and let us commemorate with hearts full of joy the foundations of this our blessed hope. For from this moment we have begun to enter our Heavenly patrimony." See Mass for Within the Octave

Also listen to Bishop Daniel Dolan's Sermon on Epiphany: The Feast of Truth

After being given the mystical horror St. Bridget had seen in the previous chapters of Book Four of her Prophesies and Revelations, the Mother of God comes to comfort her in Chapters Fifty-Three through Fifty-Six. And what Our Lady imparts is truly salve for the bride's soul for Mary tells her how she will defend defend every widow, which Bridget was, as well as every virgin and every wife in whom the Blessed Virgin sees an upright intention and a love for her Son above all else. Our Lady then shares her motherly words to the bride about the happy spiritual birth of someone brought up in the worst kinds of sins and how it was obtained by the prayers and tears of God's servants, that the man grew out of his sins and became what God so chose. This lesson shows how powerful our prayers and sacrifices can be in praying for those who have fallen into sin and may be away from the true Church, how we, in prayer, can turn negatives into great positives. We never know how many we are helping through our prayers and sacrifices. But then that is a good thing for if we trust, we have more faith. If we know, pride can set in and, well, we all know where that can lead as Christ explains. Finally, The Mother's words to the daughter about how, due to the prayers of God's servants, she wants to love a certain boy and equip him with spiritual weapons as she also shows the daughter a man not being saddened because of a correction. Such is the grace of Mary's intercessory powers. Intercession and Prayers.

"The kings of the earth shall adore God, and all nations shall serve Him "'(Offertory). While at Christmas we extolled the union of the divinity with the humanity of Christ, so the Epiphany celebrates the mystic union of the souls of men with Jesus. The liturgy of this day commemorates a triple manifestation of the glory of Christ. To the worshipping Magi He appears as King of our hearts; in the Waters of the Jordan He is declared the Son of God, and at Cana He demonstrates His power over the elements. See Mass for Within the Octave of the Epiphany

Also listen to a sermon by Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI during this time within the Octave of the Epiphany The Magi

In the combined Chapters Fifty-Seven and Fifty-Eight of Book Four of the Prophesies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden, the Blessed Mother's words to the daughter reveal how Rome must first be cleansed of the tares with a sharp iron sickle, then with fire, then with a pair of oxen, grinding it to dust in order to rebuild it to the eternal city. Christ follows with His figurative words to the bride in a short parable of how He is the Ruler on a pilgrimage, His body as a Treasure, the Church as His House, Priests as guardians of the Treasure. As His gift He leaves us with this Treasure which is the Most Blessed Sacrament and He shows how He has honored these priests with a seven-fold honor, that being the Seven Steps to the Priesthood with the Minor and Major Orders, something abolished by Paul VI and forever abandoned by his successors to the detriment of the Sacraments and Souls. Because of that God complains that wicked priests abuse him with a seven-fold abuse, and how they turn the magnificent seven vestments, which they should have, into seven vices, and will have much to answer for their scandal and abandonment. You would think this was written for today it is so vivid. A Treasure to be Cherished Forever.

"Today the Church is united to her heavenly Spouse, for Christ has washed away her sins in the Jordan the Magi hasten with their gifts to the royal nuptials, and the guests drink with joy the water changed into wine. Alleluia." At St. Peter's, where are the relics of the Church's first visible head, the liturgical celebration of the entry of the Gentiles into the Church takes place. "In the adoring Mass," says Pope St. Leo the Great, "let us acknowledge the first-fruits of our own calling and faith; and let us commemorate with hearts full of joy the foundations of this our blessed hope. For from this moment we have begun to enter our Heavenly patrimony." See Mass for Within the Octave of the Epiphany

In some traditional chapels and areas, the beautiful Mass of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Saturday is observed with the Proper of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass of "Vultum Tuum"

Considering what we have read this week in Book Four of St. Bridget's Prophesies and Revelations, it is time to ask yourself some questions. While many eschew the possibility of sedevacantism, none other than the respected founder of the Franciscans begs to differ from his prognostication given shortly before his death in the thirteenth century. Thus, considering what the apostate - one Jorge Bergoglio, who apes St. Francis just as the devil apes Christ - has done in nine short months to destroy the faith and the Papacy, we see the truth of the prophesy of the true humble one - St. Francis of Assisi - of the dangers of the proud Stalinist liberal from Argentina, who has dared to take the same name while being the complete opposite of the humble founder of the Order of Friars Minor. Thus we bring you the essence of what the saint said and the rational to look at the facts as they stand today and ask yourself if you still believe that those men who so many consider 'popes' during this time of the Great Apostasy were or are not Destroyers rather than true Pastors for true shepherds would obey Christ and not veer one iota from the holy Faith. Truly the saint of Assisi saw into the future through Heaven's permission and through discernment of the Scriptures to know that this time was coming. He may not have known when exactly, but now we have the advantage of knowing we are living in that very time and it is up to us the faithful to do something about it and pass on to others The Omens of St. Francis of Assisi for Our Times

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 any Novus Ordo service for you are receiving efficacious graces to place in a silver chalice as opposed to the sanctifying graces of the golden chalice. See Gaining Graces. We have also 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 at least 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 above. Prayers in Absentia

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

    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:

    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.
