       As we wrap up the first month of the year, we celebrate this week two distinguished Doctors of the Church whose orthodoxy and adherence to the Truths and Traditions of holy Mother Church were exemplary and stand today as the ideal every Catholic should strive for, especially in this time of the Great Apostasy when heresy is dismissed as mere opinion and the doctrines are considered evolving in true Hegelian mindset. St. John Chrysostom, whose feast is Monday, would have none of it were he here today. In fact, he would have stood strong against the usurpers, offering up his very life to assure the gates of hell would not prevail. The same for St. Francis de Sales, founder of the Visitandines, whose feast is this Wednesday. Though he was born in the immediate aftermath of the Protestant Revolution and became an integral part of the Counter-Reformation in carrying out the edicts of the holy Council of Trent, he is very much a saint we should rely on today, especially Traditional Catholic publications for he was proclaimed by Pope Pius XI as the Patron Saint of the Catholic Press. Today there are few who convey in print or on the web the Truths and Traditions of the true Faith, thanks to the terrible black hole created by the demonic "Comet Vatican2" which has shattered the sensus Catholicus in so many ways, confusing Catholics by the man-made religion formed in the sixties. What is needed today is not bodily health care for all, but rather spiritual health care for souls. What's beautiful and fantastic about the latter versus the former which is bankrupting America not to mention souls through the vice of greed, is that spiritual health care is really affordable, in fact it costs nothing except one's willingness to say yes to God and to follow the tenets of Catholicism as laid down from St. Peter through Pope Pius XII.

       This week we commemorate three martyrs including bookending the week with two Bishops St. Polycarp and St. Ignatius, as well as the Virgin St. Martina on Thursday. Throughout this week we also bring you five sermons by His Excellency Bishop Daniel Dolan courtesy of TraditionalCatholicSermons.org for the two Doctors above as well as Sunday's sermons and last, but not least, we acknowledge the feasts of two holy Confessors St. Peter Nolasco and St. John Bosco, who are unique in their charismas. The latter was given mystic visions of hell which is shared below by Fr. Eugene Brown in his now famous account of St. John Bosco's Journey into Hell

        Hell is what this world has turned into, but it was foretold by the Mother of God to an Ecuadorean nun Mother Mariana de Jesus in Quito in the Seventeenth Century that we would face these tribulations for the world and in the Church. Few would have understood or believed the prophesies imparted centuries ago, but today we can understand them clearly for we are indeed in the time Our Lady warned of. Quito was the first of Our Lady's approved visits that were followed up with Rue du Bac, La Salette and Fatima. We didn't listen and comply and thus we are faced today with the bitter fruits of our inactions. However, not all is lost for we can still petition the Blessed Virgin Mary via a Nine-Day Novena leading to the feast of Nuestra Señora del Buen Suceso , which is known as both Our Lady of Good Success and Our Lady of the Great Event, the latter being put forth as an argument by Karl D. Keller regarding the tie-in to the Fatima message. Regardless of the title, any reasonable plea to Mary will not go unanswered.

        We see that in the approved messages to St. Bridget of Sweden as we continue with Book Four, this week bringing you a chapter each day. They are truly worth reading. They say a picture says a thousand words, but these revelations say so much more and put things in such perspective that will cause all to rethink their spiritual lives and strive to improve on the path to sanctity. If we don't, we are fodder for the devil as you'll see, especially this week when we present some of the most powerful literary treasures she penned, particularly in the chapters for Tuesday and Friday. I guarantee you will be brought to tears, so much so, you may never be the same. So if you're happy in your comfort zone, you might as well click off the DailyCatholic now because the whole purpose of this publication and our mission is to move souls out of their comfort zone towards the path of holiness, something that is expected of every Catholic, every soul. God said it, we believe it, that settles it!

        To keep you abreast on the health of my bride Cyndi, she continues under home hospice care. She has her good days and bad days, offering everything up. We still struggle with the bills, but we place it all in God's hands and, again, inform you our readers that we cannot publish if donations do not increase, especially monthly pledges so that we can budget. As has been repeated so many time, it gets so tiresome mentioning that it's the same loyal benefactors who always answer the call, but few others. Ask yourself why? Ask yourself if you do not have a duty before God to help those who labor in the field for Jesus and His True Church with no compromises to the false faith, the "mystery of iniquity" that has deceived so many. Is your heart that hardened that you wouldn't give for a worthy cause? Is not pledging a monthly donation worth it for perpetuating the one true Faith? The answer can only be determined by you and what you deem to be generous and worthy.

Each Sunday and Holy Day of Obligation we feature the Haydock Commentary provided by John Gregory as compiled by Father George Leo Haydock and 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. For the Third Sunday after Epiphany, St. Paul continues the string of loving thy neighbor and encouraging doing good to overcome evil. Something our Lord relinquishes to the exterior darkness in His condemnation of the children of the kingdom and praise for the centurion whose faith He had not seen in all of Israel. Faith in Christ trumps all others as the Roman soldier illustrates for he was So Great of Faith

Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great in Cincinatti, Ohio offers food for thought on today's Gospel on the very words of faith the desperate centurion said to Christ, that he was not worthy that the Son of God should enter under his roof to heal his servant. Rather he believed so much that he stated, "just say the word and my servant shall be healed." So also at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, thrre times we say silently with the priest twice before Holy Communion, Domine non sum dignus..." "Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof, say but the word and my soul shall be healed." His Excellency shares that in order to gain the peace the centurion had, we should go often to The Child Jesus, King of Peace

In Chapter Sixty-Eight of Book Four of the Prophesies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden, Our Lady returns to alert the bride of the dangers of the wicked fox who the devil replicates in his actions and from which we derive the term, 'clever like a fox' for the devil is far more clever than we give him credit for and we need to be on our guard at all times for looks can deceive and temptations can be the death of a soul if one is not rooted in virtue. In the journey towards being virtuous, all must guard against the wily demon fox lest one be blinded by the the world, the flesh and the devil and turn virtue into vice, which the Blessed Mother warns, can be the fall of many a man who become discouraged that they are not further along. Some will give up, disheartened and that is exactly what the devil wants. Jesus explains that if one does not seek virtue and do all one can to avoid sin, not only will the fox devour them, but they will feel the wrath of God at one's unexpected death. Beware of being outfoxed.

Known as the golden voice, St. John Chrysostom is regarded as one of the four most respected Doctors of the Church as emblazoned in stone beneath the symbolic Chair of St. Peter and Holy Ghost window in St. Peter's Basilica. He represents the Eastern Doctors with St. Athanasius, along with Western Doctors St. Ambrose and St. Augustine. See Mass for this feast

Also listen to Bishop Daniel Dolan's Sermon on St. John Chrysostom

Oh, to have the caliber of saints like the holy Doctor of the Church St. John Chrysostom the Golden Voiced Orator today to combat the heresies of Modernism and to bring souls back from the abyss just as he did in the early Church. The holy Doctor of the Church Saint John Chrysostom was a great orator who studied under one of Greece's famed orators and ultimately became one of the greatest orators himself, laboring for Christ and His Church in the century in which Constantine had declared Rome a Christian state and Christianity began to flourish, thanks in large part to John. He was duly recognized by Pope St. Pius X as Patron of Preachers. Like the other Doctors of the ...More on The Golden Voice of Truth

In Chapter Sixty-Nine of Book Four of the Prophesies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden, Our Lord points out the analogy of the good conduct and good deeds of the clergy to clear, refreshing spring water and a priest's bad conduct and bad deeds to filthy, brutish water in a short soliquy to the bride on what pleases him in His sacerdotes and what displeases Him. He likens a bad priest to one of a leper who scoops up clean water from the brook, but in his infectious hand it becomes dirty, fetid and loses its purities, thus being of no good to anyone. This equates to pride and concupiscence when a priest, who has taken vows betrays God's trust in him and often can cause scandal, leaving his conduct and deeds to be washed down the drain into the devil's sewer for the evil spirit wallows in the sludge as he invites God's chosen ones to dabble in the fetid waters of the world, the flesh and the devil. Beware of muddy waters.

In Chapter Seventy of Book Four of the Prophesies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden, Our Lady pours out her sorrowful Heart to the bride. It is a solioquy which few can bear to read for it is a first hand account from the Mother of God on the intimate relationship of her Divine Son and His Mother and how her Immaculate Heart was pierced by a sword. Once you read it, you are guaranteed to feel the terrible pangs she felt at seeing what they had done to her divine Son as she describes in vivid detail how they mutilated our Lord and Savior so mercilessly. Those who have seen The Passion of The Christ will realize that was nothing to what truly happened to Jesus in His quest to conquer death and open Heaven to those who are willing to follow His narrow path and recognize Him as the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity. Few will read a more poignant, moving account of Christ's passion and death than what you will find in this chapter, which surely must have brought many tears to St. Bridget in listening to a loving mother speak so lovingly of her Son under such cruel circumstances, yet describing her Son's extraordinary handsomeness and form where even His enemies were serene in His presence. Our Lady's Unbelievably Vivid Account of her Divine Son's Passion and Death.

Also listen to Bishop Daniel Dolan's Sermon on St. Francis de Sales

    The story of St. Francis de Sales is encouragement for our times for just as God raised up many heroes following the Protestant Revolution, so too today He will do the same if we adhere to our faith and pray. In the devastation that followed the Reformation, this holy man became a key component for restoring Catholic truth as a warrior for the Word in being a major force in spreading the counter-reformation of Trent. He was born in France, yet reached every corner of the world with his works and influence. His piety, zeal and energy caught the eye of no less than the Pope himself who made him one of the youngest bishops to rule the See of Geneva. Along with another holy religious - St. Jane de Chantal, he founded the Visitandines. He was known for his gentleness and meekness, and his holiness so well known that he was the first person to be beatified in the new St. Peter's Basilica. In 1923 His Holiness Pope Pius XI proclaimed this meek warrior of the word as Patron Saint of the Catholic Press

In Chapter Seventy-One of Book Four of the Prophesies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden, Our Lord approaches the bride with four loving questions that might seem on the surface a riddle of sorts, but, following St. Bridget's humble answers to Him, He explains why He submitted three praiseworthy states to the choice of the bride. They are the state of virginity, the married state, and the widowed state. All of which Bridget herself experienced, first as a virgin before taking marriage vows; then her time as a faithful, loving wife who bore eight children; and with the death of her husband, a widow who became a religious. However, to her surprise, Jesus is not referring to her, but as we discover later, it is about one of her daughters as Christ explains His reasons on what was originally presumed did not come about and why. Questions that make perfect sense.

In Chapter Seventy-Two of Book Four of the Prophesies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden, Our Lord reminds the bride of His concern for Lazarus, whom He resurrected from the dead, and Lazarus' two sisters Martha and Mary and shows how the sisters stand for St. Bridget and her daughter, most likely Lady Cecilia from Chapter Seventy-One. Jesus points out that the Jews are envious people, and yes, He is speaking of His time, of Bridget's time, and in our time today, as He explains why He raised Lazarus. He also explains how He will give greater mercy to the bride and daughter than even what He did for the sisters of Lazarus for they are in great need of His mercy considering the temptations that abound and His disappointment with those who proclaim Him but are like hollow cymbals for they, like the Jews, do little and become indignant against those who do good deeds. Christ's Mercy Knows No Limits.

Saint John Bosco accomplished what many people considered an impossibility; he walked through the streets of Turin, Italy, looking for the dirtiest, roughest urchins he could find, then made good men of them. His extraordinary success can be summed up in the words of his patron Saint, Francis de Sales: "The measure of his love was that he loved without measure." John's knowledge of poverty was firsthand. He was born in 1815 in the village of ...More

Also listen to Bishop Daniel Dolan's Sermon on St. John Bosco

In honor of today's saint, we bring you the frightening omen of St. John Bosco's vivid dream in which a guide - an angel - took him on a journey into hell which, just as the children of Fatima have confirmed, defies description. In fact, St. John Bosco's guide confirms this that Christ Himself couldn't even speak more in detail of the most horrible place ever created. This piece by Fr. Eugene Brown is must reading for every parent, teacher and especially sons and daughters and every Novus Ordo "priest" who counsels teens that what they're doing isn't so bad, not to worry about it. Au contraire! They should be very, very concerned and St. John Bosco shows very clearly and starkly how serious everyone should take their actions and inactions for by not being obedient to their parents, superiors and authorities they are paving the way to hell, a path paved with good intentions unfulfilled. St. John proves Hell is very real! and a word to the wise should be sufficient never to forget the images he paints in words. St. John Bosco's Journey into Hell

We combine Chapters Seventy-Three and Seventy-Four of Book Four of the Prophesies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden, for the former is possibly the shortest chapter in the entire Book Four and latter, quite possibly one of the longest. The Mother of God presents a Knight who, though declared dead, is not as Mary assuages Bridget that there is hope even though he appears stripped of all his armor & tunic, and left for dead. Our Lady then produces all of Heaven's wisdom in girding him in a detailed explanation that goes beyond St. Paul's words in Ephesians 6: 11-18 of spiritually equipping him for spiritual battle as, one by one, Christ Himself, St. John the Baptist, St. Peter, St. Paul, an angel, and the Communion of Saints share the significance of each member of his body and the Knight's armor and reasons for each as well as the importance of his hands, even listing each finger for a specific prayerful purposes, as well as his legs and even his saddle and horse until he is fully ready to go forth boldly with the spiritual weapons and virtues in defense of the Faith and his own soul and that of others against the world, the flesh, and the devil. Perhaps the length of this magnficent analogy is because the knight happened to be St. Bridget's own son Sir Karl. O Holy Knight.

We begin the month of February on this First Saturday and eve of the Purification tomorrow, by celebrating a holy Bishop who willingly gave his life for Christ at the hands of the voracious lions, aware of St. Peter's words in his First Epistle, chapter five, verse 8: "Be sober and watch: because your adversary, the devil, as a roaring lion, goeth about, seeking whom he may devour." The holy Bishop and Martyr St. Ignatius of Antioch, like St. Polycarp, was a disciple of St. John the Apostle and was ...More

In Chapter Seventy-Five of Book Four of the Prophesies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden, Our Lady consoles the bride after St. Bridget proclaims prayer and praise to Jesus and His Blessed Mother, who then explains to the bride more about her son, the Knight Sir Karl, and why he appeared spiritually dead to her in the last two chapters, and why she should not doubt God's mercy. The Mother of God then shows her that God's righteous decisions often let His power become more manifest through the lies of the devil who, as Our Lady explains, tries four ways to distract, deceive and discourage, and we can surely see his methods in today's world with technology, media, and music that is at best cacophonous and distorted for a purpose: satan's goal to keep us so busy we forget God and our communication with Him. However if one can identify just what the devil is doing and alert others of his wiles, he not only becomes less powerful, but such tribulations of identifying the temptations and seeking to avoid them can lead to greater spiritual benefits for the soul. Diverting the Devil's Distractions.

As we complete the Novena today to the Mother of God via her request at Quito, Ecuador to Mother Mariana, it is important to note there is a controversy over the exact title of Our Lady as we bring you an article by Karl D. Keller in which he wants the faithful to know that, contrary to what you might have believed, there is a misnomer in the title of the apparition in Quito, Ecuador that prior to now has been known as "Our Lady of Good Success". But the title is misleading for the Blessed Virgin Mary herself has foretold what the title truly means, just as she imparted to Mother Mariana in the 17th Century of a time about the 20th and early 21st Century in which we are currently living now. The Spanish translation shows that what Our Lady is pointing to is a Great Event and what would be a greater event than Mary's Immaculate Heart triumphing so that a greater triumph - that of her divine Son's return can be realized. But she needs our help to effect this - our prayers, Rosaries, dedication to the true Church in this time of the Great Apostasy, and we are encouraged to pray her Little Office to keep us ever vigilant as Karl Keller explains in his mission to spread the word on the true meaning of Nuestra Señora del Buen Suceso as Our Lady of the Great Event

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

  • Pascendi Dominici Gregis Pope St. Pius X
  • Oath Against Modernism Pope St. Pius X
  • Mortalium Animos Pope Pius XI
  • Humani Generis Pope Pius XII
  • Sacramentum Ordinis Pope Pius XII

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

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

    Prayer Before the Crucifix

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