    We continue this week with the Novena to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel up through her feast on Wednesday. Just click the graphics to take you to the Novena, though each day through Wednesday is featured below. The significance of this feast is brought home all the more by Dom Prosper Gueranger in explaining the the importance of Carmel in Old Testament times and its relevance with the Mother of God and today and the protective garment/armor of the Brown Scapular.

    Today the blessed Scapular is shunned by so many as superstition in this new world where God is an afterthought as more buy into the false prophets warned of by St. Paul in 2 Timothy 4: 3-4 who more and more veer from Catholic truth in favoring man as the answer, never mind the divine. This is the message that pores out in the media, by most politicians, chiefly the man in the White House and the man occupying the Chair of Peter as well as more and more we are told everyone's saved. So why be Catholic? That is all the more reason to be Catholic, truly Catholic and that begins by not compromising one iota with all that has been foisted on the faithful from Vatican 2 on since that is totally adverse to divine revelation as the Apostle of the Gentiles alerts us in Galatians 1: 8-10. God's truths cannot change, nor can man create peace on earth without adhering to the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ under the only Church He founded under a true Vicar of Christ. That is something foreign both to the governments on this globe as well as the counterfeit church of conciliarism and countless thousands of other so called 'Christian' sects which were spawned over the last five centuries.

    Thus, on the feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, we bring you two features, first, a reflection by the renowned Abbe Dom Prosper Gueranger on the Lasting, Magnificence, Grace and Power of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel of how Mt. Carmel was the Bridge between the Old and New Testament; and secondly, Ava Bell weighs in with a Reality Check that the Brown Scapular is not a good luck charm and the grace of the Scapular only works if one is in the state of grace. She presents the Sabbatine Privilege, and on Mary's feast we recommit with an Act of Consecration on the final day of the Novena.

We urge you to join the 15-week Rosary Crusade organized several years ago by Bishop Robert McKenna, O.P. to do our part for the salvation of souls by bringing souls to the true Catholic Faith and Sacraments, for the welfare of our country, and for our own special intentions as we all strive for holiness in our role as members of the Church Militant. Besides always wearing the Scapular, we all need to continue to pray the Holy Rosary as often as our states in life permit. The Rosary is the most powerful weapon we have. Connect those beads. Let's use it as well as taking advantage of the Fourth Saturday of Rosary Crusade focusing on the Presentation of Our Lord.

    No sooner do we finish one novena but that we begin another, this one a nine-day Novena to St. Anne, the holy Mother of the Blessed Mother on the traditional observance of honoring the Humility of the Blessed Virgin Mary for she is the ultimate of pure humility. To see the full size of the thumbnail painting of Our Lady and her divine Son by devout traditional Catholic artist Michelle R. Maher, we invite you to see the detail of her magnificent work here.

    Throughout the week we bring you on most days a sermon by Bishop Daniel Dolan with Sunday's sermon by Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI. The end of this week we observe the Fourth Saturday of the Rosary Crusade with the intention of purity of body and soul, something the saints celebrated this week embodied beginning with St. Bonaventure, who was The Seraphic Doctor and has July all to himself as the only Doctor celebrated this month. Other saints celebrated this week are Pope St. Anacletus (commemoration), St. Henry, St. Alexius, St. Camillus de Lellis, and St. Vincent de Paul. And, of course, on Wednesday add in St. Simon Stock who received the holy Brown Scapular from Our Lady in 1251. Finally, we cover this week our final destinations - Purgatory and then Heaven in bringing you again our series Catholicism Made Simple; this week on the Church Suffering and Church Triumphant.

   We can see the bitter fruits of Mr. Jorge Bergoglio's efforts to bring Palestine and Israel together. Weeks after they all hugged - yeah, unFrancis does a lot of hugging and kissing - Hamas and Israel are in an all-out war. It seems whatever the apostate Argentine touches decays and he has no intention of converting non-Catholics, shunning Christ's command in St. Mark 16: 15-16. But then it's part and parcel of the false church of Vatican 2 - the CONciLIAR church of Darkness. We pray those who claim Judaism or Islam or any man-made religion will realize there is only one true Faith established by the Son of God and it no longer resides in Rome for the barbarians have eclipsed the true Church. All one needs to do is see what the true Church has always taught and recognize what has occurred since October 9, 1958 is the antithesis of Catholic truth. To prove this point we continue to present a two and a half minute video by Epichea Productions and first posted by Fr. Anthony Cekada on his Quidlibet to wake up the faithful to connect the dots on what constitutes a heretic. This shows clearly there is no room for doubt: The Vatican 2 'popes' have been heretics, ergo not true Roman Pontiffs. Flee the false church or forever rue it. We cannot have an 'opinion' on dogmas. God said it, we believe it by faith, that settles it. No discussion. Therefore, with many new readers searching for answers, we continue to refresh everyone daily with the Truths and Traditions of holy Mother Church.

    Evidently not too many people have scrolled to this portion of the page over the last several editions for it seems to be the same faithful benefactors who give while so many others think we're made of money and don't need a cent. Oh, if only that were true. Thus, I must ask your indulgence in my continuing plea for your charity. As I indicated in the past editions, I ask your prayers and support since we are definitely in the red in endeavoring to somehow pay our just debts on past medical expenses, not to mention my bride Cyndi's funeral costs, where the aggregate has now reached over $7,000. and climbing because of late charges. I ask your help in remembering Cyndi by donating whatever you can afford to help alleviate the debts she accrued through no fault of her own. I humbly ask you to open your heart to Cyndi's Angels.

    Also keep in mind I'm trying to cover all bases while surviving without Cyndi's Social Security check of $515.00 each month that had helped cover the mortgage, escalating lot rent, and car, in addition to other necessary expenses. Did I mention that I take not one cent of salary, nor have I over the past twenty years? Publishing the DailyCatholic has always been a labor of love for the love of Jesus, His Most Immaculate Mother Mary, and for perpetuating the Truths and Traditions of holy Mother Church from Peter through Pope Pius XII before the Great Apostasy eclipsed the True Church. I pledge to fight on in the trenches, minus a part of me - my soulmate - for I am confident God always has this traditional apostolate's back and I hope and pray you will, too. God bless and keep.

The liturgy presents to us today a great lesson in Christian charity. We must live in union with one another. We are the children of God, and we must love Him in our neighbor, who participates as we do in the divine nature. The week of the Fifth Sunday after Pentecost used to be called the week after the Feast of the Apostles, for it is among those which rather often coincide with the Feast of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, ...More

The Sunday liturgy supersedes the feast of Pope St. Anacletus. So there is a commemoration in low Masses. According to the list of Popes furnished us by St. Irenaeus, Pope Saint Anacletus is probably the same person as Pope Saint Cletus, the successor of Pope Saint Linus and the predecessor of Pope Saint Clement on the papal throne. Some say that he was banished from Rome and returned to rule the Holy See a second time. He completed the tomb of St. Peter at the Vatican, near which he was himself interred. To him is assigned the decree that bishops should be consecrated by three bishops at least; that clerics should be publicly ordained by their own bishop and that they all should receive Holy Communion after the consecration in the ...More

To enhance each Sunday's Epistle and Gospel we present this special feature provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary for the Epistle and Gospel of the Fifth Sunday After Pentecost with the cogent comprehensive Catholic Commentary penned by Father George Leo Haydock that if one is reconcilied with his fellow man then he will always be reconciled with God for he will remain in the state of grace, which is necessary for participating in the sacramental fullness of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. If we do not comply with our Lord's commands, the consequences are catastrophic as we see with Make amends with thy brother before partaking at the altar

Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a twelve-minute sermon given three years ago by Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI, where he points out the theme for the Fifth Sunday after Pentecost is holiness beginning with St. Peter entreating us to turn away from evil and Jesus' stern intimidation that we cannot assume we will be saved if our hearts are not true. Father cites several other passages of the gospels where Our Lord points out that we cannot take our salvation for granted, but that we should strive to be like Christ for we are temples of the Holy Ghost and have the instinctive goal of striving for holiness. Father also provides what some of the saints advised on becoming holier. It is very simple, Father emphasizes, merely: avoid evil, and do good. He encourages those who may think they could never be a saint, but often times it is through misconception that they have to be exactly like them. Father maintains that sanctity consists of the virtues we maintain because we are called to be saints. After all, saints are sinners striving to do good. So also, Father urges us to Strive For Holiness

We continue the nine day Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel that was composed in part by St. Simon Stock in the thirteenth century for it was to him the Mother of God, dressed in the colors of Carmel as a Carmelite holding her divine Son as a child, appeared to him and bequeathed to him the Brown Scapular which every true Catholic wears without fail 24 hours a day. It is similar to the monastic scapulars in miniature form and is considered a sacramental since it is blessed and Our Lady has promised that those who wear it faithfully will be granted the grace of final perseverance as long as they remain in the state of Sanctifying Grace. Today is Day Six

The holy Bishop and Doctor of the Church St. Bonaventure was born in Tuscany in 1221 as Giovanni Fidanza. In consequence of a miraculous cure, he entered the Franciscan Order. While still young, he became minister general; guided by his wise and prudent spirit, the Franciscan Order was saved from the schism which was about to divide the rigorous from the mild. He was closely united to St. Thomas Aquinas; both taught at the University of Paris at the same time. St. Bonaventure was created Cardinal and Bishop of Albano in 1273 by Pope Gregory X; he died on July 15 in the following year at Lyons whilst the Ecumenical Council was being held in that city. The Pope and the entire Council took part in his funeral; every priest in the world said Mass for his ...More

July 14 is the Double Feast of Saint Bonaventure. He is the only doctor celebrated in July. Satan is indeed furious and we need today men of the caliber of St. Bonaventure who was a man full of "good fortune" from his earliest years. Humility was his virtue; his role model was St. Francis of Asissi, the holy founder who named him. He followed this man, continuing the ideals of the Franciscans, guiding them during turbulent times when growing pains created problems in the ranks and with various ecclesial authorities opposed to the Friars Minor. This Universal Doctor was one of the first saintly Cardinals of the Church. He was close friends with "The Angelic Doctor" St. Thomas Aquinas and the saintly king of France King Louis IX. He was the architect of the 2nd Council of Lyons and, fittingly, was called home by God immediately following completion of the Council. His work done on earth but continued through his writings and example; so much so that Saint Bonaventure is known as The Seraphic Doctor

We continue the nine day Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel that was composed in part by St. Simon Stock in the thirteenth century for it was to him the Mother of God, dressed in the colors of Carmel as a Carmelite holding her divine Son as a child, appeared to him and bequeathed to him the Brown Scapular which every true Catholic wears without fail 24 hours a day.

Today is Day Seven

Saint Henry was born to a life of command from the day of his birth in 972 to the day he died on this day in 1024. While still in his early twenties, at the death of his father, Henry became the Duke of Bavaria. His life until this point had been exemplified by piety and self-denial. His beloved wife, St. Cunegunda, rivaled him in the practice of virtue and in her desire to aid and love their people. Together, they lived in a state of chastity, so that, at the his death, Henry restored her as a virgin to her family. In 1002 AD, Henry was declared ruler of Germany and Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. During his reign he continued in the exercise of Christian and manly virtues. The poor were fed, justice prevailed and the military abilities of the Emperor were proved in battle and not found wanting. Whenever ...More

Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a five minute sermon by Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great in the Ohio's Queen City of Cincinnati, on the saintly Bavarian king, St. Henry, who like King St. Louis IX, put Christ first and foremost as the King. The bishop shares other important anniversaries of this date including St. Vladimir, ruler of Russia and a little known Blessed Melissa (?) who founded a religious order during French Revolution and eventually established a missionary endeavor in Africa. She followed Church law even if the bishops and even pope were not. His Excellency shares these attributes along with the holy Emperor of Germany St. Henry for all manifested the wonderful Gift of the Holy Ghost - fortitude, something that sustained the holy King St. Henry

We continue the nine day Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel in preparation for tomorrow's Double Major Feast. This novena was composed in part by St. Simon Stock in the thirteenth century for it was to him the Mother of God, dressed in the colors of Carmel as a Carmelite holding her divine Son as a child, appeared to him in 1251 and bequeathed to him the Brown Scapular which every true Catholic wears without fail twenty-four hours a day. It is similar to the monastic scapulars in miniature form and is considered a sacramental since it is blessed and Our Lady has promised that those who wear it faithfully will be granted the grace of final perseverance as long as they remain in the state of Sanctifying Grace. Today is Day Eight

The feast of Carmel dates back to the time of the Old Testament for Carmel is the mountain of the renewal of the Covenant and Divine intervention through Elijah the Prophet around 900 BC as revealed in Isaiah, Jeremiah and 1 Kings. Carmel, which lies on the border between Samaria and Galilee 20 miles from Nazareth, is derived from the Hebrew Karem el which means "garden" or "orchard" and "vine of God." It has become a symbol of grace and that is why it so so fitting that the rain Elijah [Elias] prayed for came at Carmel as the "little cloud" (3 Kings 18: 44) turned into a mighty rain that wiped out the drought. So also in the New Covenant God sent "a little cloud" in the person of His Blessed Mother Mary to rain upon mankind the graces God bestows as the Mediatrix of all graces. In the 5th Century, Chrysippus of Jerusalem wrote of the Blessed Virgin, "Hail, Cloud of Rain that offers drink to the souls of the Saints." It was around the 12th Century that Carmel first became a place of veneration toward the Mother of God and monks took up sanctuary there living a holy rule. It was the beginning of the Carmelite Order founded in the Holy Land in 1154 by Saint Berthold and dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Their original name was Brothers of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel. The original rule was set down by the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem in 1209. The Crusades were instrumental in bringing the Carmelites to Europe through the work of Saint Simon Stock whose feast this date the Church formally celebrated. This English monk learned through private revelation of locutions and visions from Our Lady that he was to to join an order not known in Britain, yet dedicated to her, and was asked to wait until a few White Friars, as they were called, came to England with the returning Crusaders. Then he was guided to join this Order of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Because of his ...More

Down through the ages Mount Carmel has been a rock of inspiration and sanctification from the time of Elias to present day. The story of Carmel is prose, poetry and prayer and basically the benchmark of the Blessed Virgin Mary's integral role as Advocate, Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix of all graces. Carmel has been favored by Our Lady as foretold in the Old Testament and as manifested to St. Simon Stock 672 years ago in 1251 when she bestowed on him the Brown Scapular and the amazing promise of ultimate salvation to all who abide by the rules of the Scapular. In addition, at Lourdes the Blessed Mother appeared to Bernadette as Our Lady of Mt. Carmel on this day 155 years ago and in the same heavenly garb on her final apparition at Fatima on October 13, 1917. We provide a thorough backgrounder on the meaning and magnificence of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel and its history, masterfully conveyed by Abbe Dom Prosper Gueranger in his masterpiece The Liturgical Year as well as the Act of Consecration to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in honor of today's Double Major Commemoration in a feature we have chosen to call The Lasting Magnificence, Grace, and Power of Our Lady of Mount Carmel

We've all heard those words above by St. Francis of Assisi, but how many of us really understand this? Ava Bell, a committed Traditional Catholic, relates how this hit home for her in her earlier days before receiving the grace to truly see where she was heading. Her experience is pertinent for our times as she presents a sobering story that should shake the timbers of our souls and wake the echoes of those who assume security when, in truth, there is only one way to secure eternal salvation and no amount of superstitions will stay the inevitable truth that for any sacramental to be effective, the one receiving it must be of good will and open to the grace of God, specifically Sanctifying Grace. Without this protection, all else is futile, fateful. She candidly explains this and the Sabbatin Privilege in her article The Brown Scapular is Not a Good Luck Charm

We continue the nine day Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel that was composed in part by St. Simon Stock in the thirteenth century for it was to him the Mother of God, dressed in the colors of Carmel as a Carmelite holding her divine Son as a child, appeared to him and bequeathed to him the Brown Scapular which every true Catholic wears without fail 24 hours a day. It is similar to the monastic scapulars in miniature form and is considered a sacramental since it is blessed and Our Lady has promised that those who wear it faithfully will be granted the grace of final perseverance as long as they remain in the state of Sanctifying Grace. Today is Ninth and Final Day

Act of Consecration to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel
      O Mary, Queen and Mother of Carmel, I come today to consecrate myself to thee, for my whole life is but a small return for the many graaces and blessings that have come from God to me through thy hands. Since thou lookest with special kindness on those who wearest thy Scapular, I implore the to strengthen my weakness with thy power, to enlighten the darkness of my mind with thy wisdom, and to increase in me Faith, Hope and Charity that I may repay each day my debt of humble homage to thee.

       May thy Scapular bring me thy special protection in my daily struggle to be faithful to thy Divine Son and to thee. May it separate me from all that is sinful in life and remind me constantly of my duty to imitate thy virtues. From now on, I shall strive to live in God's Presence, and offer all to Jesus through thee. Dearest Mother, support me by thy never-failing love and lead me to paradise through the merits of Christ and thy own intercession. Amen.

Also see the special indulgence and promise to those who observe the stipulations as asked by Our Lady and approved by true Popes. See Sabbatine Privilege

July 17 is traditionally the feast of the holy, humble confessor Saint Alexius. According to the most recent researches he was an Eastern saint whose veneration was transplanted from the Byzantine empire to Rome, whence it spread rapidly throughout western Christendom. Together with the name and veneration of the Saint, his legend was made known to Rome and the West by means of Latin versions and recensions based on the form current in the Byzantine Orient. This process was facilitated by the fact that according to the earlier Syriac legend of the of the Saint, the "Man of God," of Edessa (identical with St. Alexius) was a native of Rome. The Greek legend, which antedates the ninth century and is the basis of all later versions, makes Alexius the son of a distinguished Roman named Euphemianus. The night of his marriage he secretly left his father's house and journeyed to Edessa in the Syrian Orient where, for seventeen years, he led the life of a pious ascetic. As the fame of his sanctity grew, he left Edessa and returned to Rome, where, for seventeen years, he dwelt as a beggar under the stairs of his father's palace, unknown to his father or wife. After his death, assigned to the year 417, a document was found on his body, in which he revealed his identity. He was forthwith honored as a saint and his father's house was converted into a church placed under the patronage of Alexius. In this expanded form the legend is first found in a hymn (canon) of the Greek ...More

Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a six-minute sermon given seven years ago on the feast of the holy confessor St. Alexius by Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great in Cincinnati, Ohio. He reminds us to clothe ourselves in the virtue of humility, illustrated by St. Alexius. On the saint's wedding night of an arranged marriage, he left his wife his father's house in Rome and traveled to Syria where he led the life of a pious beggar while also caring for those who were desolate, then returned to Rome as a beggar where he lived beneath the stairs of his father's home, unbeknownst to anyone in his family. Those he tended to did not know that he was the son of a wealthy Roman until after his death. That is why humility is so important so that we don't look at ourselves, but to look to God and leave all in His hands just as St. Alexius did. The bishop explains in his sermon on St. Alexius

Why Protestants and so many others deny the existence of Purgatory is beyond explanation considering they honor the dead and ask for prayers. If the departed is in Heaven, no prayers are necessary and if the departed is in hell, no prayers are possible. Therefore, it only makes sense that after death it would be useless to pray for any of the dearly departed if there was not some way those prayers could help. That is why both faith and reason point to a place of purification for in order to be admimitted into the presence of the perfect Beatific Vision one must be pure. Just as gold is purified by fire, so also is it necessary for souls to be purified in Purgatory. Makes perfect sense and it is left to the Church Militant to assist the Church Suffering through our prayers, and indulgences gained solely for the souls through Masses, devotions, penances, sacrifices and the ultimate unselfish sacrifice of the Act of Heroic Charity. Jesus says if one has not charity, all else is as tinkling cymbals. There is no greater love than to pray souls into Heaven as we see in Step Eighteen, The Church Suffering

Today is the traditional observance of the Humility of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the beginning of the Nine-Day Novena leading up to the feast of Mary's holy Mother St. Anne who instilled in her the virtue of humility. The painting above of the Blessed Mother holding her divine Son embodies humility and was painted by a very humble artist Michelle Maher, a dedicated traditional Catholic, who has an artistic talent that shines through in her work which for her is a true labor of love with the emphasis on love. If you would like to know more about her paintings, contact us at the email at the bottom of this page and we can put you in touch with her. To view a larger rendition of this painting, click here. There are three known Novenas to St. Anne. We present two submitted by Margaret Omlor, the daughter of the renowned Patrick Henry Omlor. This Novena ends on the feast of the holy Apostle St. Jame's the Greater, which is the eve of St. Anne's feastday. Click here for Day One of Novena to St. Anne

He was the son of an officer who had served both in the Neapolitan and French armies. His mother died when he was a child, and he grew up absolutely neglected. When still a youth he became a soldier in the service of Venice and afterwards of Naples, until 1574, when his regiment was disbanded. While in the service he became a confirmed gambler, and in consequence of his losses at play was at times reduced to a condition of of destitution. The kindness of a Franciscan friar induced him to apply for admission to that order, but he was refused. He then betook himself to Rome, where he obtained employment in the Hospital for Incurables. He was prompted to go there chiefly by the hope of a cure of abscesses in both his feet from which he had been ...More


Day Two

Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a seven-minute for the feast of St. Camillus de Lellis by Bishop Daniel Dolan. St. Camillus expressed great humility and charity for the sick. While he attended to the physical needs of the ill, he held paramount the healing of their souls. He himself was incurably ill, and leaned on Our Lady as Health of the Sick, so much so that he embraced those were the same and sought to right the wrongs done in the infirmaries. He saw in each wretched patient the image and likeness of Mary's divine Son Jesus. Despite his ailments, he founded a religious order and hospitals, and is known today as one of the patron saints of the dying. The bishop shares the miracle at his death in sharing the life of St. Camillus De Lellis

The ultimate goal for every soul is eternal happiness. Too many think true happiness can be attained on this earth and in so thinking, fall short of ever seeing the Beatific Vision. What many consider superstitious is very much a reality. Heaven is the final destination and anything short of that ends in eternal damnation. Considering the alternative, why would anyone not do all on this earth in order to gain eternal life? It's a question for the ages that many have brushed aside as a fait accompli. Everyone is going to Heaven, well almost everyone. Wrong on both counts. Only those in the state of Sanctifying Grace will be admitted through the celestial portals, many, as we learned in the last step, will spend time in the purification fires of Purgatory. It is impossible to perfectly describe Heaven for as the scriptures affirm, the "eye has not seen, or ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man, what things God has prepared for those who love Him." It is left to us to do all in our power to see and hear what the Almighty has in store and all He has asked us to do is love and obey Him. We can see the end result of our good fruits in Step Eighteen, The Church Triumphant

St. Vincent de Paul was born of a peasant family at Pouy in Gascony, France, in 1580. Though some authorities have said it was 1576. He made his humanities studies at Dax with the Cordeliers, and his theological studies, interrupted by a short stay at Saragossa, were made at Toulouse where he graduated in theology.
Ordained in 1600 he remained at Toulouse or in its vicinity acting as tutor while continuing his own studies. Brought to Marseilles for an inheritance, he was returning by sea in 1605 when Turkish pirates captured him and took him to Tunis. He was sold as a slave, but escaped in 1607 with his master, a renegade whom he converted. On returning to France he ...More


Day Three

Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you an eight-minute sermon given seven years ago for the feast of the holy confessor St. Vincent de Paul by Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great in Cincinnati, Ohio. St. Vincent, whose body remains incorrupt today, was born during reign of Pope St. Pius V. He was captured by the Turks in northern Africa and then released, and that implanted in him the desire to convert the Mohammedans as well as bring comfort to poor Christians, and, like St. Camillus, he put the welfare of the poor person's soul first and foremost. He believed in the axiom that you teach a man to fish, he'll eat for the rest of his life and so he organized classes for poor people to better themselves, but as a holy priest, it was their eternal salvation that was most important. But, as the Bishop says, no man is an island, we must all show charity to our neighbor as he shows the example of the holy St. Vincent de Paul

We urge you to click the Rosary banner above for the Fourth Saturday in the Fifteen Saturdays Rosary Crusade organized by Bishop Robert McKenna, O.P. to do our part for the salvation of souls by bringing souls to the true Catholic Faith and Sacraments, for the welfare of our country, and for our own special intentions as we all strive for holiness in our role as members of the Church Militant. On this fourth Saturday of the Fifteen we focus on charity towards our neighbor in featuring the Fourth Joyful Mystery - the Presentation of Jesus in the temple for the Fourth Saturday

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:

    The links above and below provide almost daily updates. The two above can be trusted totally, while we urge a mild caution on the two below because of their refusal to admit Francis is a false pope.

    For other sites that provide the tenets of the Faith but are not daily, we refer you to

    All Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ, Thy Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by His Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of His resurrection. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

      We encourage you to learn more about the Traditional Latin Mass - the true Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in these videos at this link because each time you worthily assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in person, you gain graces that are placed in a "golden chalice", so to speak, and is offered to God to be weighed in substance when you stand before Him at your Particular Judgment. The more you have filled this chalice, the better will it go for your spiritual welfare in eternity, enhanced by your cooperation with grace. Know the Mass

    To assist all in striving toward holiness, click on the Confessional to your right to review your transgressions through a thorough Examination of Conscience

    When One Cannot physically assist at 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

    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.
