All throughout this week there is a commemoration of Within the Octave of the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary with the Octave Day serving as the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary on August 22. We encourage you to sign up for our twitter feeds so you'll be on top of anything that breaks and keep up with news, features, events, devotions and the liturgy for each day. The DailyCatholic computer was down, thanks to a vicious malware and trojan that somehow infected the system and it took all day on the Solemnity of the Assumption to repair. Hopefully things are back to normal as I scramble to get this out, but as my late, great bride Cyndi always discovered - the devil always assaults on feasts of Our Lady because he hates Christ's Immaculate Mother so much for she is the one who will crush his head (cf. Genesis 3:15). Personally, we can't wait for that glorious moment! besides the daily stanzas honoring the Immaculate Mary, we begin on August 22 a bouquet of 50 Ave's representing a full Rosary taken from St. Louis Marie Grignon de Montfort's magnificent The Secret of the Rosary that we will carry daily with a subsequent rose up through the Divine Maternity on October 11 in the month of the Most Holy Rosary as we honor the Blessed Mother throughout these three months dedicated to her. We encourage you to check the features below for this week.

    The Gospel for the Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost treats the parable of the Good Samaritan and the question here is not whether we are willing to help our fellow man with the Corporal Works of Mercy, but whether we are also willing to emphasize the Spiritual Works of Mercy. These include:

                      • To admonish the sinner
                      • To instruct the ignorant
                      • To counsel the doubtful
                      • To comfort the sorrowful
                      • To bear wrongs patiently
                      • To forgive all injuries
                      • To pray for the living and the dead
   Traditional Catholics, especially those who hold the theological stance of sedevacantism (a Church established and approved state), believe strongly that the Chair of Peter has been vacant since the death of His Holiness Pope Pius XII. In keeping with the Spiritual Works of Mercy, it is vital to admonish sinners. For this we are labeled as 'Pelagians' by the current imposter in Rome. So be it, we have tough skin and realize the true Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, Soul and Divinity is not possible in Mr. Jorge Bergoglio's ecclesial entity. Thus we must go against the grain, swim against the stream of comfort zones catering to the world, the flesh and the devil. That is why we have a duty, a Catholic responsibility before God to instruct the ignorant and, believe us, the majority are truly ignorant of what the Catholic Faith teaches. That is why, with so few true priests, it falls on the laity to counsel the doubtful while leaving the true sacraments to the true priests who are spread so thin. The same goes for comforting the sorrowful and there is plenty to be sorrowful for, not only if you read the daily headlines or hear the sound bites, but the void of grace in countless souls since the Holy Ghost long ago lifted protection of the church in Rome today due to the Modernists' infiltration and the Great Apostasy resulting from the Second Vatican Council. Because we march to a different drum and choose the narrow path over the wide path to destruction strewn with wilting roses. That's why we get a lot of rejection. That's why we could tear our hair out in frustration at the lack of conversions except we know that "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible". Therefore, as true Catholics, we must bear wrongs patiently and forgive all injuries. Finally, or should we say, first of all we cannot sustain this path unless we do as St. Paul says in his letter to the Corinthians, "Such confidence we have through Christ towards God. Not that we are sufficient to think of ourselves, as of ourselves: but our sufficiency is from God". That is why we are strongly encouraged to pray for the living and the dead in fulfilling our part of the Communion of Saints, something lost in today's pick-and-choose politically correct CONciLIAR church where the devil has ensconsed himself as is only too evident.

    In fact, It would seem the gates have shackled what to the world appears as the Catholic Church today, but in essence, is nothing but an evil imposter posing as Catholic while stripping her of all semblance of Catholicity. Yet so many remain blind, deaf and dumb to it all, going along to get along without realizing how wrong they are and how they will have to account for their actions or inactions at their Particular Judgment when it will be too late to make excuses or say 'I didn't know'. That is why we have continued to publish the DailyCatholic and link you to reliable, trusted sites so you can't say you didn't know. That is why we provide the Haydock Commentary for each Sunday courtesy of John Gregory. That is why, thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we're able to bring you a pertinent sermon for the deaf to hear and this week Bishop Daniel Dolan rebukes the apostates and its apparatchiks with The Novus Ordo Is Pelagian. Yes, it means leaving the comfort zone you've erroneously grown accustomed to, but it's time all realized that we owe our allegiance not to men who violate the Faith, but to God and all that His holy Catholic Church passed down from Peter through the last true Pope - His Holiness Pope Pius XII of happy memory. Since then the wolves have invaded and engulfed souls in their wicked jaws. The six imposters you see here could never be true Popes as previous true Popes have decreed as is documented to the right.

    When you discover what the True Church teaches you'll realize that ever since the death of His Holiness Pope Pius XII , the Catholic Church hasn't been the same. That's right, and Jesus tells us why. Because what poses as 'Catholic' today, governed by those usurping the authority in Rome and dioceses throughout the world, is a false church - an arrogant, out-of-control, failing man-made religion that has eclipsed the humble true Church consigned in these times to the catacombs. Our Lord shows us in Sunday's gospel His mercy in healing those willing to be healed, but He is also equally just and those who presume on His mercy may be left in the dust. Jesus identifies these proud modedrnists who have eclipsed the true Church quite clearly in St. Matthew 7: 15 that we must beware of the false prophets who may appear in clothing of sheep, but inwardly we must recognize them as ravening wolves or worse. If the faithful couldn't see the "abomination of desolation" (St. Matthew 24:15) and devious destruction of the true Faith during the regimes of the first five imposters since Pius' passing, they should surely see it now as Roman-born Argentine Mr. Jorge Bergoglio continues his agenda to wipe out any vestiges of Catholic truth that would be offensive to non-Catholics in his Marxist mindset to please man, not God through his humanist efforts to form a One World Religion. If one reads St. Paul's warning in 2 Thessalonians 2: 3-11 and what many would do in 2 Timothy 4: 3-4, we can more readily see what Our Lord meant in St. Luke 18:8 when He asked rhetorically if there would be any one of faith left when He returns.

    How do we restore the sacred? How do we wake up the masses as to what constitutes a true Mass and that those in the CONciLIAR church of Vatican 2 do not have it? First of all, we pray. Then we inform so the deaf may hear and the dumb speak out the truths from the rooftops. Out of all reliable sources verifying the above, NovusOrdoWatch provides the best play-by-play of the implosion of the counterfeit CONciLIAR church and the schemes toward a One World Order which is intent on erasing all true spirituality from this planet. Others worth checking on daily are for articles and links, as well as True Restoration and the following blogs that we heartily recommend Introibo Ad Altare Dei, Fr. Anthony Cekada's Quidlibet, Bishop Donald Sanborn's In Veritate, and the satirical, but on-point Call Me Jorge. We also point you to Traditio which, although the Father Moderators will not admit the term "sedevacantism", 95% of what they provide reinforces this position. Note, we provide here those sites that carry almost daily coverage and in no way demean other sites that update more infreqently. For those sites, please see Traditional Catholic Resource Port.

    The only obstacle to totally dominating as a totalitarian society is the Roman Catholic Church. Always has been. Since the death of the last true Sovereign Pontiff Pope Pius XII on October 9, 1958 that wall of resistance has been steadily crumbling thanks to those with a worldly Marxist bent to accept the world and please man rather than God as is so evident today. Oh, the devil is laughing, but he seems to forget Genesis 3:15 where the Blessed Virgin Mary will crush his head with her heel. Oh, we can't wait! Until then, it's important to expose the wolves just as the holy Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales advises for the sake of informing souls of the dangers these charlatans pose.

    It's also important that Protestants of every fabric, as well as those wedded to the dead-end Novus Ordo and its apparatchiks, realize Jesus founded only ONE Church upon the Rock of Peter and "the gates of hell shall not prevail against it" (St. Matthew 16: 18). Just the fact the fortifications are crumbling is evidence the church since the 60's is not the true Church for if it were, then the conclusion would have to be Jesus was wrong. That is blasphemy. Ergo, we need only revert to the Act of Faith we say every day wherein we pray "We believe these and all the truths of the holy Catholic Church because Thou hast revealed them, Who canst neither deceive nor be deceived." Just the fact so many souls have been deceived proves it is not from God, but of His adversary lucifer and his legions. Also the fact that all other religions formed over the last two millennia Anno Domini were founded by men who thought they had a better idea than God give credence that they were all founded upon error. Thus Lutherans, Presbyterians, Methodist, Baptist, Mormons, etc. may call themselves Christians, but considering they subscribe to a sect that broke from the true Church, and thus have abandoned their stewardship as God expects, this should have them quaking in their boots for unbeknownst to them, most have embraced Mammon. We say that not to denigrate those born into or taking up a false religion, but to "Preach the word: be instant in season, out of season: reprove, entreat, rebuke in all patience and doctrine" as St. Paul urges in 2 Timothy 4: 2. For the Apostle of the Gentiles was given to know as he warned in the next two verses: "For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables."

    The vast majority of Protestants and Novus Ordinarians do not realize this and it is left to true Catholics to inform them, to reprove, entreat, rebuke in all patience and doctrine. Basically it means upsetting their comfort zone. They may not like it, they may put up their defenses or do as so many do, change the subject and get away as fast as they can. But if we, as true faithful Catholics who abide by the infallible, perennial Magisterium of nearly 2000 years, do not do as Paul instructs in verse five to be vigilant, labor in all things, and do the work of an evangelist to fulfill our ministry while keeping sober, then we will be held accountable for our stewardship and face bad news at our Particular Judgment. We may not win friends with our persistence to proclaim the truth, but if we can convert souls, that's all that counts with God. Man has a free will. That is something to remember and when rebuked, then shake the sandals and move on. After all, all Our Lord asks is that we try. He'll do the rest. We conclude with the reminder of what Christ says in St. Luke 18: 7-8, "And will not God revenge His elect who cry to Him day and night: and will He have patience in their regard? I say to you, that He will quickly revenge them. But yet the Son of man, when He cometh, shall He find, think you, faith on earth?" The truth is there is little faith left and it is dwindling by the day. It all makes sense today and it makes sense to take our stewardship seriously and commit our efforts to restore the sacred by driving the apostates out so that the churches can someday, in God's time, become truly Catholic churches again after they are re-consecrated with the filth washed away.

    That brings us to the purpose here for we've noticed a lot of chatter on the twitter lately asking questions about the legitimacy of the Novus Ordo or challenging theological opinions because almost everyone admits something is wrong, actually seriously wrong. Therefore, we continue to bring you installments from the late Fr. James F. Wathen's irrefutable work The Great Sacrilege published way back in 1971 that will alternate with a chapter every other day of the Prophesies and Revelations to St. Bridget of Sweden. Hopefully these two continuing features will . To this day, not one person has been able to refute what he laid out so clearly. The Novus Ordo is not only wrong, it is "The Great Sacrilege", something every Catholic needs to know before they realize too late what Traditional Catholics know: it is truly the "abomination of desolation" foretold by Our Lord in St. Matthew 24: 15 and prior to that by Daniel in the Old Testament. On alternate days we continue with a chapter of the Prophesies and Revelations to St. Bridget of Sweden every other day that will hopefully clear up the confusion, and in an effort for each person to intensify their spiritual life, to strive toward holiness. Thus we present this inspiration to meditate on the contents of each short chapter and not be overwhelmed by too much in your journey to truth. It's really, in truth, an inside to the mind of God and how we should live just as His bride St. Bridget was instructed. You see here so beautifully depicted St. Bridget in the painting by Michelle R. Maher. To see a larger copyrighted image click on the painting or here.

   So while the Marxist apostate Mr. Bergoglio the unFrancis continues to proclaim ever so boldly collective salvation through protecting against 'global warming', we must realize each one of us is responsible for our own salvation and we've been given the blueprint before Vatican Two. Guess what? It still works. Guess what else? The new-fangled CONciLIAR religion doesn't work. Never will. That is why we find more waking up after praying for the grace to see, truly see, and that is where twitter can be a great means of conversion one soul at a time. That's why, to paraphrase an axiom in less than 140 characters, brevity is the soul of witnessing as we ask you to follow the DailyCatholic on Twitter After all, it is not 'global warming' we should fear but God's Global WARNING.

    While we see the edifications of the saints throughout the traditional liturgy each year, especialy this week in celebrating the feasts of Sts. Joachim, Hyacinth, Pope St. Agapitus, John Eudes, and Jane de Chantal with a special nod to Thursday's St. Bernard of Clairvaux, the holy Abbot, Doctor of the Church, who also crusaded through Europe for the Crusades to restore Christianity in the Holy Lands. He also composed the beautiful, meaningful Memorare. That prayer is especially important at this time when must be so aware of ours and these saints' adversaries who work tirelessly to dissuade souls from pursuing holiness. This is not something that has just happened, but was percolating for centuries and only came to the surface over the past fifty plus years with the cabal that corrals Catholics today with the notion that doctrine evolves and that everyone goes to Heaven. Again, to alert souls to this deception, what we all must do is...

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. We all need to continue to pray the Holy Rosary as often as our states in life permit. This week we continue the Novena to the Immaculate Heart of Mary leading to her feast on the Ninth Saturday of the 15 Saturdays Rosary Crusade where the intention, coinciding with the fourth sorrowful mystery - the Carrying of the Cross - is love of the Cross - for as Jesus says, "Unless you are willing to take up your cross and follow Me daily, you cannot be My disciple" Probably few times in history have Christians been more reviled than in our day when the godless seem to be stifling free speech and forcing more crosses on those who won't compromise with the world, the flesh, and the devil. We cannot let up and should not limit our Rosary to one day a week. In fact there is now a way where you can join others in praying the Holy Rosary on ROSARY CALL where Tom Gilbrough from Mt. St. Michael's in Spokane has set up a conference call every evening at 8 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time. On the east coast this would be 11 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, Central 10 p.m., and 9 p.m. Mountain time. Just call 712-775-7031 then, when answered, punch in access 393-323# You are encouraged to call in 5 to 10 minutes early to prepare to share the Holy Rosary with others. You can follow along with the prayers of the Rosary if you do not know them by going to Holy Rosary port The Rosary is the most powerful weapon we have. Connect those beads. Also, each day we continue to share here with you this month a continuing stanza a day from the hymns of the Little Office of the Immaculate Conception in honor of this month dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

    Though I have already personally thanked each of those who have answered our plea here at SANCTUS/DailyCatholic, I want to publicly acknowledge their sharing and caring. To date we've raised just over $3,000.00 but are still a little more than $2,000.00 short of our necessary goal to continue publishing. Actually, because we had not reached our goal in time, the debit is even more now. We desperately need donations and, as mentioned a several editions ago, almsgiving is part and parcel of salvation for we cannot take it with us and how we distribute our treasure and talents on this earth goes a long, long way toward what the verdict will be when we stand before the Supreme Judge at our Particular Judgment. The more who realize this, the more peace of mind they will have. We are not a church. Yet we have been a traditional apostolate professing, proclaiming and promoting the infrangible truths of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church for a quarter of a century. During this period we have always depended upon the mercy of our readers and benefactors and God has always provided, with the Holy Ghost prompting souls to donate.

    As you know, this long-running publication has always used that analogy for this publication in inviting all to "set sail with" We can confidently say, without a shadow of a doubt for all the years we've been publishing on-line, that we've never steered one soul wrong in all we've published. For our content has been in 100% accord with the infallible, perennial Magisterium of the Church firmly aboard the true Barque of Peter. Speaking of vessels, over the last year we've been taking on water even in a drought year, no less, due to a bilge of bills. To stay afloat we need to turn to you our readers. It has been well over a year since this editor made a plea for funds. Prior to that my beloved late bride Cyndi would write a heartfelt plea and benefactors would respond generously. With her gone, I'm not too good at asking for money, but purveyors need to be paid so necessity is the mother of invention and I have to ask. Speaking of mothers and Cyndi, it was Henry Ward Beecher who said "The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother." I can confidently say before God I loved their mother dearly and dearly hope that what we imparted as parents will sustain them in this chaotic world where the secular demons of the world, the flesh and the devil have eclipsed Christ's holy Church, chasing the faithful remnant into the catacombs of sedevacantist churches and chapels. That is where we are today, isolated, if you will, from the vast majority because of our belief in the true Faith. But belief alone, as strong as it is, isn't, unfortunantely, strong enough to move mountains or meet expenditures that continue to increase as the economy teeters. Therefore, of the $5,000.00 needed for this apostolate to continue as it has we're still close to $3,000.00 short. I set that amount for we have always budgeted $25,000. a year in donations and to date since January the total is close to $11,000. and we're way past the half-way point of the year. Hopefully you can more readily see the deficit and why the DailyCatholic's plight is actually at that crisis point. As fast as it would come in, the faster it goes out to meet the creditors necessary to keep this publication on line. I would hope and pray you will see in your heart the compassion to help and we remind you with the graphic below, repeated each day. We remind you we are a bonafide 501c3 non-profit so any and all contributions are tax-deductible. I also remind you that this editor does not take one penny in salary. It remains a labor of love. Now I just ask for a little love from our readers by clicking the graphic below to take you to our Donation page. Thank you in advance.

We have been initiated into spiritual life by the Sacrament of Baptism and strengthened, perfected, by the Sacrament of Confirmation. The Feast of Pentecost has celebrated the efficaciousness of Baptism and Confirmation: the graces and fruits given by the Holy Ghost.The Church recalls in the Liturgy today the duty of charity which derives ...More

The excellence of a fruit is always a sign of the quality of the tree which bore it. In the case of St. Joachim, the Immaculate Conception of Mary reflects a splendid glory on the chaste union of her parents. The Gospels speak of a sister of Our Lady who accompanied her even to the foot of the cross. According to some authorities she too was a daughter of St. Anne and of St. Joachim. ...More

Day Three

For the Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost John Gregory provides the Haydock Commentary where Father Haydock brings out the importance of the Good Samaritan parable for it is, as the Fathers and early Doctors of the Church all agree, an allegory of the New Covenant. The victim in dire help is Adam, his posterity is Jerusalem. The man, by heading for Jericho is seeking the world, the flesh and the devil, is accommodated by the demons personified in the robbers, who take grace from him by beating him as he succumbs to sin. Those who pass by him without helping represent the old Law, while the Samaritan is Christ Who represents the New Law. His beast of burden signifies our Lord's humanity and the inn He brings the man to represents the only Church He founded. The wine for the man is the Blood of Christ, the oil is His mercy. The host of the inn represents St. Peter and his succession of true Popes and Hierarchy. The charge to go and do in like manner

Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a seventeen minute sermon for the Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost in which Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great in the Ohio's Queen City of Cincinnati, proves that Bergoglio should look in the mirror for he is the true pelagian. In truth, the Argentine has no concept of what Pelagianism is as the bishop explains that heresy where man can save himself. This is what Fr. Fahey called the "organized horses of naturalism" - played out by the Masons and Vatican 2. He then shows how the Novus Ordo is Pelagian for the sacraments are skewered beginning with Baptism and carrying out through the rest of them which were drastically changed to please man, while eschewing the divinely ordained sacraments. The modern church is man-centered, barren of saints and the sacred. Every year it strips away any semblance of Catholicism left. Thus, in every way The Novus Ordo Is Pelagian

Thou City of God,
   Thou gate of the East,
In thee is all grace,
     O joy of the blest. Amen.

As the lilly among the thorns,
      So is my beloved among the daughters of Adam.
O Lady, hear my prayer.
      And let my cry come unto thee.

Day Four

The late Father James F. Wathen continues Chapter Two by delving into what constitutes Papal Infallibility as set in stone at the Vatican Council and codified by Pope Pius IX in his Dogmatic Constitution Pastor Aeternus. Father points out how wonderful and assuring this doctrine is so that Catholics can be affirmed when a true Pope speaks from the Chair of Peter - Ex Cathedra on Faith and Morals for the Church has always been the shining beacon to uphold virtue and morality. Father points out that Montini's 'New Mass' was in no way an act of infallible teaching authority and is one of the first to call into question the morality, nature and orthodoxy of this vulgar form that has been foisted on the faithful as we see in Part Two of Chapter Three on Papal Infallibility

      Hail, City of refuge,

Day Five

Through these revelations to St. Bridget we see clearer than ever the mind of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Here, for the first time, St. Bridget speaks and admits she was mistaken. Christ reveals three things to recognize the good spirit and likewise three keys to identify the evil spirit that comes from God's adversary the devil. Jesus assures her that no one who devoutly serves Him will be handed over to satan or allow the demon to win. He points out that He allows temptations and man's weakness to strengthen us and test our fidelity as well as humbling us so that we will depend solely on Him as illustrated in Chapter Four of Book One Be not deceived

Day Six

The late Father James F. Wathen begins Chapter Three, appropriately labeled by the same as the title of the book "The Great Sacrilege" as he focuses on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, codified as thee Mass for all ages and explains why the Council of Trent decreed it so by providing also several quotes of the saints as Father emphasizes the sacrificial aspect of the Mass as being the heart and soul for salvation for the bread and wine confected into the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ in Transubstantiation at the Consecration is truly the "Bread of Angels". We can see over the past several decades how even the true Presence has lost credibility with many Catholics, again lex orandi, lex credendi. Yet, when you think about it, it is the conciliar leaders who have promoted this very thinking with their abominable 'New Mass'. Father explains in part one The Holy Mass

      O Woman most valiant,
           O Judith thrice blest,
      As David was nursed
           In fair Abisag's breast.
From None in the Little Office of the Immaculate Conception

The holy Abbot and Doctor of the Church Saint Bernard of Clairvaux was born at the castle of Fontaines, in Burgundy near Dijon, in 1090. The grace of his person and the vigor of his intellect filled his parents with the highest hopes, and the world lay bright and smiling before him. But Bernard renounced it forever to join the monks of Citeaux, a few miles distant. Four of his brothers and a group of friends, thirty young Christians in all, went when he did to Citeaux, leaving the youngest brother, Nivard, to be the mainstay of his father in his old age. "You will now be heir to everything," they said to him as they departed. "Yes," said the boy; "you leave me the earth, and keep Heaven for ...More

Day Seven

Saint Bernard of Clairvaux was a truly dedicated man who turned his back on the world and built monasteries throughout western Europe and was the confidante of popes and kings, beggars and paupers. He was the main man in preaching the purpose of the Crusade to recover the holy land where Our Lord and Savior walked. Bernard traversed the continent stirring men through prayer and reason, never compromising the Truths and Traditions. He was responsible for the revival of the Cistercian Order. This holy and mystic Abbot from France composed one of the most beautiful prayers ever created the Memorare out of a thorough devotion to Our Lady. See more on this Crusading Hammer of Heretics

Through these revelations to St. Bridget we see clearer than ever the mind of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The loving words of her Bridegroom here presents a wonderful parable of a lovely castle. This magnificent edifice signifies the holy Church Militant where Jesus tells St. Bridget how the Church of God will be rebuilt by the prayers of His bride, His Blessed Mother, and of all the saints, as well as all presently members of the Church Militant in the great Communion of Saints for if we do not work together, the ramparts of the castle walls will crumble and be pillaged as we see in Chapter Five of Book One Without God's cooperation all efforts are futile.

    As the Savior of Egypt
         Upon Rachel's knee,
    So the world's great Redeemer
         Was cherished by thee. Amen.

    Thou art all fair, my beloved.
          And the original stain was never in thee.
    O Lady, hear my prayer.
          And let my cry come unto thee.

Saint Jane Frances de Chantal was born in Dijon, France in 1572, the daughter of Benigne Fremyot, president of the parliament in Burgundy, and married at twenty to Baron Christopher de Chantal who died in 1601. Nobility and riches were there for the asking for Jane Fances, but ...More

The late Father James F. Wathen continues with part two of Chapter Three, focusing on the holy dogmatic Council of Trent and the True Mass. He points that it was Trent that elevated the Mass to the importance and infrangibility it deserves and is, as Fr. Faber called it, "the most beautiful thing this side of Heaven". Father tackled the source of what we must all believe, the infallible dogmatic Council of Trent for as he writes "If you and I have any inkling of the the holiness and the necessity of the Mass, it is due in no small degree to the Council of Trent" and, as he illustrates, it is Trent that reinforced the True Mass in the face of the devastating Protestant Revolution. Other than a few traditional watchmen, few realized in the sixties and early seventies that the Revolution had returned with a vengeance thanks to the devil's dealings. The Council of Trent and the True Mass

      Hail, dial of Achaz,
           On thee the true sun
      Told backward the course
           Which from old he had run.

Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary always flourished in the Church, but its first official approval did not come till the beginning of the 19th century when Pope Pius VI approved, for certain religious organizations, a Feast for the Most Pure Heart of Mary. The devotion was approved for the universal Church when Pope Pius XII dedicated all mankind to the Heart of Mary in December, 1942, following this by the institution of the new Feast of the Immaculate Heart of the B. V. M. See the Mass of Adeamus

Today is also the Octave Day of the Assumption. We invite you to listen to an inspirational talk given by Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI at the Fatima Conference five years ago titled "My Immaculate Heart is the Way that I will lead you to God"

Today is the final day of the Novena

Day Nine

When the venerable renowned Benedictine Abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger wrote The Liturgical Year there was no feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary for it was still considered merely the Octave Day of the Assumption, yet what he wrote for this day applies so well to the feast day established for the universal Church by His Holiness Pope Pius XII during the Second World War in 1942. Needless to say, in his heart the Prior of Solesmes Abbe Gueranger knew of the devotion to Mary's Most Pure Heart for His Holiness Pope Pius VI had already approved the feast for certain religious houses, most probably the Benedictines as well at that time in the early nineteenth century and he began his masterful work L'Annee Liturgique - The Liturgical Year in the mid-1800's.

Besides the Little Office of the Immaculate Conception stanzas below from St. Louis-Marie Grignon de Montfort, we have the magnificent inspiration he gave us of The Secret of the Rosary. Beginning on Mary's feast of her Immaculate Heart we want to bring you daily installments to enhance your devotion in praying the Rosary for those blessed beads are indeed, the most powerful weapons we have available 24-7. This will last from August 22 up to the Divine Maternity of Mary Theotokos on October 11, covering 50 Ave's. If you truly want to change hearts, convert souls, and make an effort to change the world for good, then pray Mary's holy Psalter. Each Ave, as the banner above, a spiritual rose that gathered together in the bouquet of the Mysteries of the Rosary become countless Spiritual Roses offered to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, especially during her month dedicated to same. We know God cannot say no to His Blessed Mother and she won't say no to you if you take up the Rosary and pray it as often as you can depending on your state in life. We begin with the Preface to St. Louis' work, written over two and a half centuries ago. And now, Preface to The Secret of the Rosary

      And that man might be raised
           Submitting to shame,
      A little more low
           Than the angels became.

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

  • 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

      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

    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."

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

  • 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.
