                    On this Easter 2015, we approach a full year since the loss of our loving Cyndi, of whom I ask you to remember in your prayers for the repose of her soul. While we may believe she's in Heaven, as Catholics we can never presume and if she is in the presence of the Beatific Vision, then all prayers will transfer to other deserving souls. The penitential season of Lent has passed and with it we shout Alleluia and extend to all our readers a blessed and grace-filled Easter and may you bask in the Mystical Light of our Resurrected Savior and grow stronger in your Faith throughout this time of Paschaltide. We remind all that the Regina Coeli replaces the Angelus during Paschaltide. For this Annual Easter Week Edition click on the preferred day above.

   This Wednesday will be the one year anniversary of the death of my beloved bride Cyndi as the family will gather late that afternoon to pay our respects at her grave. We rerun the beautiful painting you see here by the magnificent traditional Catholic artist Michelle Maher of North Carolina, who dedicated it to Cyndi. We are so appreciative for the beautiful rendition of Our Lady because it truly captured the very essence of how Cyndi pictured the Blessed Mother, to whom Cyndi's mother Dolores dedicated Cyndi at birth and dressed her only in blue and white as a child. From the earliest years Cyndi had a special connection with Our Lady, who guided her throughout her life, bringing her safely to Heaven's shore. In fact, we include on Wednesday a personal diary I found last week that Cyndi wrote in which her life's goal was "to be a saint." We thank those who expressed their concern and sympathies over this past year, and the kind notes that were received for this true victim soul who is finally free of suffering, having completed her mission on earth with the salutation of our Lord in St. Matthew 25: 21, "Well done, good and faithful servant". To keep Cyndi's memory fresh, we are going to re-run each day, except on Sundays, her University of Virtue Lessons she graced these pages with and we begin with her introductory essay "Return to Piety Place". Also, please pray for Michele who is undergoing treatment for severe diabetes and for her husband Tom and their daughters Gabriel, Grace, Lucy and Madelyn. We include here Michele's "Rhapsody of Saints". We urge you to click on the full page tab of the YouTube video to truly grasp the beauty of Michelle's work.

   This Easter Week we are re-running John Gregory's magnificent treatise on the work of Monsignor Joseph Clifford Fenton and his masterpiece, "The Catholic Church and Salvation." Finally, to keep abreast of events, their causes and consequences, and inspiration from other ports, we confidently recommend NovusOrdoWatch.org and Christorchaos.com for articles and links, as well as three blogs worth your while, Introibo Ad Altare Dei, Fr. Cekada's Quidlibet, and Call Me Jorge. Below you can gain greater inspiration during this Paschaltide from John Gregory's reflections on the Glorious Mysteries by clicking on each of the mysteries.


Throughout this paschal week the Roman Liturgy is entirely absorbed by two great thoughts, that of the Resurrection of Our Lord and that of the Baptism of the neophytes. These are, as it were, two mysteries which mutually complete and explain each other. Each is a symbol of the other; the one is the prototype, the other the antitype; but neither can be understood if considered by itself, for the regeneration of souls to the life of grace through the sacrament of Baptism, after a spiritual manner which yet is full of reality, is a new Resurrection of Christ in His Mystical Body. There is no longer any mention of fasts and corporal penances, but instead, visits are paid to the great Roman Basilicas, the white-clad band of neophytes being conducted thither as in a triumphal procession. After the paschal vigil of Holy Saturday at the Lateran the first basilica to be visited is that of the Mother of God on the Esquiline, for it is fitting that to her, before any other, the joys of the Resurrection should be announced, to her who more intimately than any other shared in the Passion of Jesus. The Introit is derived from Psalm 138, which extols the knowledge and the presence of God that pervade the inner-most part of our being. The antiphon has, however, been adapted to the paschal solemnity as we see in the liturgy for The Resurrection of the Lord

Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI, Rector of St. Joseph's Minor Seminary in Rathdrum, Idaho at the City of Mary presents a 10 minute sermon for the Solemnity of the Resurrection of Our Lord in which Father shows how this was the crowning glory of His work. He gave them everything He could, even His Own body and blood, but true to His prophesy, He would rise again on the third day, which, indeed, He did, and by doing so, merited for us our opportunity at eternal life. While so many asked that He show the doubters a sign, He showed the greatest sign possible in rising from the dead. Just as Christ triumphed over sin and death, so also will we if we are obedient to the divine Will. Father also equates the few Macchabees with the remnant today to stay the course, carry our cross and know that we will have life everlasting. Father explains in his sermon Easter Sunday

Through the kind assistance of John Gregory, we are able to provide our readers with the Haydock Commentaries for the Epistle and Gospel for the Solemnity of the Resurrection of the Lord to complement the Propers of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. In Father George Leo Haydock's commentaries on the Douay-Rheims version of the New Testament for Easter Sunday As St. Paul asserts in one of the shortest epistles of the year, the old leaven, meaning the Old Testament, has been fulfilled. The old rites have been superseded by the new rite instituted by the Son of man on Maundy Thursday. Through the new unleavened Bread we receive the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ our Lord and become heirs of the kingdom of Heaven, Jew and Gentile alike who abide in Him and all He has taught through His One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. Reason indeed to exclaim with great jubilation: Alleluia, alleluia for indeed it is time to The Rising of the Unleavened Bread

Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey completes his special series on Reflections of Salvation History with the Glorious Resurrection. In this special eight-part series on "A Reflection of Salvation History," first introduced to our readers back in 2003, and brought to you to enhance your contemplation for this holy season, Tom has taken us indeed from Eden to the empty tomb. He points out that, despite the hardships, the sacrifices, the insults, the scourging, the stripping, the nailing and hanging on the wood of the Cross, Christ proved for all time that it was worth it. Is it worth it to us? By our actions and fidelity to His teachings passed down through His Holy Church and carried out in the Sacraments, especially Baptism, Penance and the Holy Eucharist, we illustrate if we think so. If we are His loyal lambs, Christ the Lamb of God has guaranteed He will be loyal to us at our Particular Judgment. Nothing else matters for salvation is at stake. Alleluia. Tom explains in his seventh and final installment of his Holy Week series From Eden to the Empty Tomb The Resurrection

This Octave is entirely consecrated to the neophytes. The week was for them a continual feast, a spiritual feast; and they kept their white baptismal garments, which were not laid aside until the following Sunday (in albis deponendis). The Masses of this Octave allude, like that of Pentecost, sometimes to the Resurrection, sometimes to Baptism. Let us follow the example of the neophytes, let us all be one in mind and heart, in proclaiming together our faith in the risen Christ Jesus our Lord. Among the early Christians the Easter festivities were prolonged for the entire week; to no other feast was so much solemnity given. During this week Rome kept continuous festival; business transactions were suspended; every morning the stational Mass was celebrated at one of the chief basilicas. The station at ...More

There are so many who speak of salvation, but they fail to realize that only through the Catholic Church, the one and only Faith on earth established by the Son of God - can man be saved. John Gregory begins with this first installment to share the renowned work of the orthodox theologian of the 20th Century Monsignor Joseph Clifford Fenton as John initiates a series on The Catholic Church and Salvation. Fr. Fenton's work needs to be spread widely throughout the world, especially in these times when the very man who the world thinks is a pope says atheists can be saved by "doing good." Oh, how far we have fallen if we buy that heresy. This is also timely to combat the vapid "lumen fidei" just released by the CONciLIAR comrades-in-corruption Mr. Bergoglio the unFrancis and the quitter Joseph Ratzinger. Oh, we have lost so much and we need to return to our Catholic roots in order to prune off the bad branches that cling like bastardized barnacles to the bark while returning the Barque of Peter to the rightful crew to guide souls to Heaven's shore. John presents Introduction to The Catholic Church and Salvation

With the world becoming more sinister by the day, reflected in the styles and fashions and mindsets of so many that so hideously illustrate how vice is squeezing out good, it is high time to revive the virtues, to bring back the example of saints and a return to all that is right and just.

With the above in mind, Cyndi was inspired back in late 2007 to begin a new series in which she would take the reader on a refresher course, if you will, guided by a par excellence faculty that could be matched nowhere in the world for the teachers are our Lord, His Blessed Mother, the Saints, Doctors and Fathers of the Church. It is, in essence, the University of Virtue. We hoped you would gain in grace and understanding from the words put forth. Thus, as the humble instrument Cyndi introduced this series in piecing together the tableau laid out so perfectly by God and woven with the golden thread of the Holy Ghost's infinite tapestry, by which the Mystical Body of Christ is united. It is the magnificent divine Opus leading us to our Heavenly Home. This double thread of Charity and Suffering, which the Sanctifier employs, cannot be separated, for it embodies Christ's Own command: "If anyone loves Me, let him take up his cross daily and follow Me." It begins with piety, for all reverence is due the Lord. She explained in her introductory column Return to Piety Place

Station at the St. Paul-Outside-the-Walls. After visiting St. Peter's, it was fitting that the neophytes should at once be brought to the Doctor of the Gentiles, beside whose tomb they had learned the first rudiments of the new law of the Gospel. Therefore in the Lesson from the Acts of the Apostles chosen for today, it is Paul who announces to the faithful the Resurrection of the Savior as Peter did on Easter Monday. The Gospel from St. Luke describes the first appearance of Jesus to the Apostles. As the Resurrection of Our Lord is the central tenet of the Christian faith, so the Divine Wisdom, in order to take away all excuse for the unbelief of the synagogue, willed that the miracle should be proved beyond all possibility of doubt. In the Prayer with solemn simple words a rule of life is set forth today surpassing the heights to which any mere human mind could rise. The Church prays that God may grant to the baptized realization of all which Baptism ,means inasmuch as it communicates the very life of Jesus Christ Himself. In the ...More

A Rose is a rose, is a rose unless it embodies the fullness of grace exhibited by the most beautiful Rose, St. Rose of Lima whom God raised up following the Council of Trent to guide us in these times. Yes, today we must look to St. Rose when the infallible tenets of Trent are so trashed by the robber baron weeds - pestilential prelates - who have become a blight upon God's garden of graces by preying on the buds of belief in squeezing dry the vital moisture of virtue, leaving a desolate desert of fruitless tangled thorns.

Following her introductory lesson, Cyndi began a series of lessons in the course Sanctity 101 guided by the everlasting Dean of the University of Virtue - the Holy Ghost and His unparalleled faculty led by the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity - our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, His Most Blessed Mother, the Saints, Fathers, Doctors and inspired Roman Pontiffs. She commenced with a more recent saint, in fact the first canonized saint of the New World: Saint Rose of Lima, whose legacy lives on in the virtues she practiced. Think of a particular virtue, more than likely St. Rose of Lima lived it to perfection. Humility, obedience, modesty, you name it, there aren't enough petals on a rose to count how many virtues St. Rose exhibited throughout her relatively brief thirty-one years on this temporal turf. Rose embodies the perseverance of St. Monica and the sufferings of the most willing victim soul and she personified our Lady in her fiat as obedient daughter, virtuous wife, compassionate mother and accepting widow, and willingly sent her own flesh and blood back to the Father. In the example of St. Rose we are presented with a vivid illustration of the many attributes of God. Cyndi commenced with lesson one in revealing the beauty of this rose and the everlasting edification exuding a heavenly fragrance for all of us to strive to emulate. A Rose whose petals of purity forever bloom with abundant graces

While all know who St. Augustine and St. Robert Bellarmine are, John Gregory shows how Monsignor John Clifford Fenton deduces how they arrived at their conclusions through lesser known, but wise theologians as well as refuting Protestant polemicists. In the aftermath of Bellarmine's De Ecclesia Militante, throughout the last several centuries, the teachings of this holy Cardinal of the Counter-Reformation have been misconstrued and misapplied, often times in ambiguous terms to totally negate the true meaning of St. Robert's teachings. Thanks to Pope Pius XII, it was left to Monsignor Fenton to clarify the unadulterated truth and to expose those teachers who either misread or purposely applied his words to their own agendas, similiar to what the Second Vatican Council is noted for and which has continued with the newchurch 'popes' up to this very day, most recently in unFrancis' first encyclical Lumen Fidei where, for instance, he intentionally attributes the wrong meaning and intent of St. Irenaeus that the holy Doctor of the Church would have approved of the CONciLIAR Church. We know he would not, but this deceit is necessary to justify Bergoglio's own agenda to canonize Vatican 2. If only we had a Monsignor Fenton today! If only we had a Pius XII! If only we had a true Pope! John presents this one time lengthy Part Two, Chapter III Some Sources of Misunderstanding

Station at the St. Laurence-Without-the-Walls. Today we honor St. Lawrence, the Cross-bearer of the Roman Church, to express our gratitude for the favor shown by him to the catechumens in bringing them to holy Baptism. The Gospel gives the account of the third appearance of the risen Savior to the Apostles. On the shores of Lake Tiberias St. John, the virgin soul among the Apostles, sees him first, but Peter, the most ardent and the most impetuous, in the vigor of his faith throws himself into the water and is the first to reach the divine Master, whilst the others slowly follow in the boat. The fishes brought by St. Peter at the command of Jesus are interpreted to represent the neophytes baptized on Holy Saturday. Throughout the paschal season the Church displays a great veneration for the martyrs, of which the first evidence is seen today at the tomb of St. Lawrence. The reason of this devotion is that the martyrs have a special claim to the glory of the Resurrection, since they have participated more closely than others in the ...More

Following is the very last thing Cyndi wrote. It was on January 3, 2014. From that point on she could no longer hold a pen, let alone sit at a computer. Recently, in clearing out some files, I found a notebook where she had kept a diary up until the 3rd when she wrote what you shall find below. I have prayed on whether Cyndi would have wanted it published, and have discerned that God would like it published for it is the essence of who Cyndi was and will better illustrate the child-like love she always held for the Holy Trinity and the Blessed Mother, and why she was graced with special gifts such as locutions and even visions for, as we know from Church history, God chooses the most feeble of vessels to manifest His message to mankind. Cyndi never felt she was special and reluctantly accepted the limelight when it was for the welfare of souls, but often would recede back into the background afterwards for she was a contemplative person who preferred being a solitary soul. All her life she focused on loving God above all things by being a loving wife, devoted mother and devout Catholic. Truly, her goal was "to be a saint." I truly believe she has reached that goal. Here then are her final brief words in Cyndi's Final Lesson - a revelation of her heart and soul

On this one year anniversary of the passing of this editor's beloved bride of nearly 33 years, we repeat the tribute to Cyndi published priorly. For years For years it was inevitable that my beloved bride of nearly 33 years was living on borrowed time. She had escaped death numerous times throughout her life with an immune system that made her susceptible to so many infections, and where she had contracted pneumonia 60 times during her 65 years, seven months and eight days on this fleeting planet. Yet, through it all she was a fighter because she knew God wasn't finished with her yet. She suffered throughout her life. Yet she was not a victim of circumstance and seldom ever complained, for she was a victim soul who willingly offered up whatever God chose for her. She did it not for herself, but for her family, for those dear to her both near and far, for those who would request prayers as well as for the most abandoned soul in Purgatory and the souls most trapped on this earth by the snares of the world, the flesh and the devil. Her loving soulmate, husband, father of her sons, and editor of this publication wants to share how special Cyndi was in showing how she lived and how she died. Nobly and in total peace of mind, heart and soul. Though this is a long tribute, it will give you a much better sense of just who this saintly lady was, where, when, what, how and why God chose this weakened vessel to fulfill His mission in keeping the true Faith alive throughout the hills and valleys of her life. I can attest with tears in my eyes, that this beautiful mom truly lived the Beatitudes as can be seen in "God writes straight with crooked lines"

Station at the Church of the Twelve Apostles in Rome. Under the high altar of this church are preserved the relics of the Apostles Philip and James only; the stational feast is celebrated in honor of all the Apostles together. The Lesson from the Acts of the Apostles deals with the conversion of the treasurer of Candace, Queen of the Ethiopians by Philip the deacon, not the Apostle. The Gospel gives the account of the appearance of the risen Savior to Mary Magdalen; this occurred before He showed Himself to the Apostles, but in the Liturgy it is put back until today on account of the respect for them. The words of Jesus to the Magdalen are very consoling; by the Resurrection Our Lord has linked humanity to Himself by an intimate bond. Jesus is truly our Brother, God is in very deed our Father. By the death of Christ' we have gained far more than we had lost by sin, and it is in this sense that ...More

John Gregory continues his series on the work of Prior to Vatican 2 and the occupiers who slithered in as imposters with the intent to slowly but surely destroy the Church, the true magisterium ordinarium et universale determined that one must believe what the Church has decreed. It is not open to opinion if it is de fide. While there are some discussions and dissent on theological opinions, such as the stance of sedevacantism, there is no discussion as to who is saved outside the Church. That would be no one! However one need not be a member of the Church per se to be saved, though one can only be saved through the Catholic Church. That is de fide, set in stone, as Monsignor Fenton so deftly explains in identifying the very documents that lock this in with no room for discussion. Yes, Feeneyites, it's an open and shut case. Oh, and those in the Recognize-and-Resist camp, compare the orthodoxy and no-nonsense doctrine Fr. Fenton presents to the excessive verbage and progressive pabulum the robber barons have been spewing for the past 50 years. John reminds you of what is Catholic truth with Part Three The Dogma of Salvation in Official Pronouncements of the Church

Has anyone ever realized why Mary has been seen weeping by visionaries? Could it be because they have strayed so far from her divine Son? Could it also be that she cries because so many souls are heading to perdition?

On the feast of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, Cyndi reached ahead sixteen years to 1846 to share the significance of the apparition of Our Lady of LaSalette. The Blessed Mother's Church-approved message has been, for the most part, hidden and dismissed by operatives of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. Cyndi points out how, from early in the 19th Century, Heaven provided all the help necessary to stave off the Great Apostasy and still we didn't listen. From the Miraculous Medal to our Lady's copious tears to the Sun spinning it would seem man has been deaf and dumb to all Heaven has warned. Now we face exactly what our laxity has asked for: Rome has lost the faith and become the seat of the antichrist. Will we continue in the perilous path or turn back to God before it is too late? Have we not learned from the mistakes of the Jews of the Old Testament, even when we have the powerful aid of God's Own Mother to guide us? Our Lady of Perpetual Help is perpetually trying to help. The problem lies with those she's seeking to protect and warn. Cyndi shared why, at LaSalette, Our Lady Wept for a Reason

In the Seventh Century the Roman Pantheon was dedicated to St. Mary and the heroic sons of the Roman Church, who had suffered martyrdom. The martyrs indeed seem to have a particular right to the glory of the Resurrection on account of their perfect resemblance to Christ crucified; and many ancient liturgies kept a special feast in their honor in the very midst of the Easter festival. Today's station ad Martyres remains as a last record of this early liturgical tradition, for, later on, the collective feast of the martyrs was transferred, even in Rome, to the middle of the month of May, and still later to the first day of November. The Introit contains an allusion to the paschal feast of the neophytes, who, like the Israelites of old, have escaped from the slavery of Egypt across the Red Sea, which is a symbol of holy ...More

Saints never say "Bah, humbug!"

As we entered the Season of Advent in the Church's liturgical year back in 2007, Cyndi pointed out that everywhere else the purpose of this season was lost on the masses who are constantly reminded of things that make men merry and greedier, but not happy. What the vast majority have failed to focus on are the four last reminders for salvation of their soul. Cyndi tried to put this season of giving in proper perspective. While many attribute St. Nicholas as the saint of gifts, she illustrated how St. Laurence Justinian was known for his generosity. Many questioned his sanity in giving away so much, but he knew God would provide for any of his needs. Too often our wants get in the way of our needs. What we really need is to remember the Four Last Things: Death, Judgment, Heaven and Hell. By keeping these crucial realities always in mind, we, too, will be able to then begin to emulate the holy Patriarch of Venice in our generosity and holiness. Our worries will fall away for we have trust in the Lord that He will provide for our needs in all things pleasing to Him. Cyndi shared in her essay,Being constantly aware of the Four Last Things can ease the burden

John Gregory continues his series on the work of Monsignor Joseph Clifford Fenton prior to Vatican 2. Objectors can argue all they want, but the Fourth Lateran Council in 1215, the century of saints, made it abundantly clear the difference between "inside" the Church and "outside" the Church and what is the best place to be is obvious as the Council Fathers established infallibly on who can and cannot be saved. Of course this is all relative to the CONciLIAR church who think they can rewrite the rules in order to win friends and influence people in following the Dale Carnegie formula while forgetting the dogmatic divinely ordained formula set in stone and codified by Pope Innocent III in the thirteenth century. It's not complicated, but really very simple with no ambiguous terms like Vatican 2 foisted on the faithful. The Church said it, that settles it as Msgr. Joseph Clifford Fenton documents in his work "The Catholic Church and Salvation" and as John explains the tie in of The Dogma of Salvation and the Fourth Lateran Council

The conclusion today of the baptismal celebrations calls the neophytes together again in the Lateran Basilica beside the font in which on Easter Eve they were born to newness of life. Today's stational liturgy seems to be influenced more than ever by the thought of purity and innocence, like a loving mother carried away by the beauty of her newborn child. On this day in the early Roman Liturgy the Pope used to distribute to the people the Agnus Dei of the blessed wax mixed with sacred chrism, on which was impressed the image of the Lamb of God. This custom, one of great antiquity, took place during the Mass, whilst the schola of the cantors chanted the invocation Agnus Dei before the Kiss of Peace preceding the Communion. The Epistle explains the teaching of St. Peter to the first Christian converts about the sublime dignity to which they have been raised by Baptism. The Gospel befits the return of the newly baptized to the Lateran Basilica; Peter is the pastor whose words have taught the neophytes; John is the co-titular patron of the Lateran baptistry, so that it is in his house, as it were, that the station is celebrated today. After eight days Jesus showed Himself to His ...More

Msgr. Joseph Clifford Fenton gets to the heart of salvation in his work "The Catholic Church and Salvation" by showing how Pope Boniface VIII's infallible decree Unam Sanctam left no doubt as to the only means to Heaven as John Gregory resumes his series. John points out that moreover, it was proved that justification, the actual transfer of a man from the state of original or mortal sin into the state of sanctifying grace, is possible only in Our Lord. Here the dogma of the Catholic Church's necessity for the attainment of eternal salvation and for the remission of sin manifests itself as the clear and accurate statement of the meaning actually conveyed in the scriptural expression "in Christ Jesus." Neither justification nor glorification-that is, neither the remission of our sins nor the attainment of the Beatific Vision-is possible except "in Christ Jesus." And the Church, in the divinely inspired epistles of St. Paul, is represented precisely though metaphorically as "the body of Christ." To be "in Christ Jesus," then, is to be "within" the Mystical Body of Christ, Our Lord's one and only true Church or kingdom. And, just as justification and glorification are absolutely impossible other than "in Christ Jesus," they are likewise absolutely impossible "outside" His Mystical Body, which is the Church...the true Church from Christ through Pope Pius XII. John shares part five: The Dogmatic Decree on Salvation: Unam Sanctam

If anyone might have been discouraged it would have been St. Therese, but because she loved God so, she didn't panic and took every moment one step at a time in her little way, and overcame every obstacle, offering it all to God. What better example to emulate

Cyndi provided a role model we could all emulate as a boost to renew those new year's resolutions that so quickly fade when push comes to shove because, often, we set out to do too much and can so easily get discouraged. But if we trust in God and place all in His care and offer all our sufferings, discomforts and setbacks for Him as Saint Therese of the Child Jesus did, then we can be encouraged that it can be done. Cyndi reminded us to take consolation in the fact that it is not our successes that God judges, but our efforts. He knows what is in our hearts. Whatever cocoon God so chooses to place us in as His Catholic caterpillars in digging in for the Faith, we can be encouraged by the manner in which St. Therese handled the "little things" that so please God. We need to know that doing as she did will build up dividends in Heaven so that when it is our time to shed the cocoon of our mortal bodies, He will lift us up just as He did the humble little saint of Lisieux: a beautiful butterfly who continually flutters in our hearts and stirs souls to seek the divine Will. What better time to begin the "caterpillar contemplative crawl" than Lent when we place prayer, penance and self-denial at the forefront? Cyndi shared in lesson It's the Little Way that Leads to Holiness

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:

      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

    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

    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...
    Pope Pius IX, July 31, 1858

  • 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.
