   This week we celebrate over a four-day span two Double of the First Class Feasts that are the essence of Catholicism with two Doubles of the Second Class Feasts as well. We begin the week Monday with the the Feast of the holy Apostles Sts. Peter and Paul, the former the first Pope personally appointed by Jesus Christ Himself (cf. St. Matthew 16: 18-19) and the latter the man Our Lord struck from a horse and blinded so that he would become the great evangelizer and "Apostle of the Gentiles." So much so, that St. Paul is given a Double Major feast on Tuesday to close out June, followed by two more great feasts.

   The Solemnity of the First Class Feast of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus is the last First Class Feast during this time after Pentecost until the Solemnity of the Assumption in six weeks during the month of August, which is dedicated to the Immaculat Heart of Mary. Holy Mother Church, in Her wisdom, shows the link through the Precious Blood that beat within the Sacred Heart in the womb of the Immaculate Heart. It is the same Precious Blood she would blot and clean when He might have hit His thumb with a nail or a wood sliver during His learning curve in becoming a carpenter under His loving foster-father St. Joseph. It is the same Precious Blood of tears that the Son of God shed at Gethsemane; the same Precious Blood Our Lady wiped from the stone floor of the scourging area; the same Precious Blood she wiped from His disfigured face on the way to Calvary; the same Precious Blood that dripped down upon her as she stood beneath the cross; and the same Precious Blood she washed away from her dead divine Son before He was laid in the sepulchre. The wine used at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass (the true Traditional Latin Mass) when confected by the alter Christus becomes the same Precious Blood when the words are pronounced exactly as you see to the right as the Council of Trent and Pope St. Pius V set in stone for all time. One practice you can do each day is to bless your loved ones and ask the Blessed Mother to take their souls and all their cares and worries and place them on the altar to be washed in His Most Precious Blood at Holy Mass at each True Holy Sacrifice of the Mass Locations by true priests.

   On Thursday, we conclude the First Class Feasts by honoring Our Lady with the joyful celebration of the Visitation of Mary to her cousin Elizabeth where St. John the Baptist, whose First Class Feast of his Nativity we celebrated last week, lept in Elizabeth's womb at the presence of the Messiah Whom Mary, the living Tabernacle, was carrying. We close the week with First Friday Devotions in celebrating the feast of the holy Sovereign Pontiff Pope St. Leo II with the votive Mass of the Blessed Virgin Mary on the First Saturday of July with the accompanying devotions as well as tying in with the Visitation for the Second Week of the Fifteen Saturdays Rosary Crusade, something sorely needed as things in the world and the false church go from bad to worse, especially with those in charge today who are modern day antichrists or at least precursors to the if there ever were such.

    As we have been pointing out for several editions, we can't fathom what has happened to our beloved Church, now in eclipse for the past half a century, but we also know how it will end and we can see the end in sight for the inerrant scriptures tell us this false church is the "church of Babylon" in St. John's Book of the Apocalypse in chapters 17 and 18, not to mention St. Paul's words in 2 Thessalonians 2: 3-11 where God would allow man to "believe a lie" which is what He is doing in testing man's faith. So far the vast majority have flunked miserably and they weren't even using Common Core! Those who have buried their heads in the sand and ignore what is going on in Christ's holy Church, well they have Apocalypse 3: 15-16 to warn them if they continue to remain lukewarm. A few reliable sources who are definitely not lukewarm are the following sites we highly recommend to keep abreast of events as fast as they are spinning out of control along with the causes and consequences. This is especially important right now in the aftermath of the horrific secular 'encyclical' on global warming. What so many forget is what is happening today is NOT global warming, but rather a global WARNING from God. Thus we confidently point you to NovusOrdoWatch.org and Christorchaos.com for articles and links, as well as these blogs worth your while, 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.

    As much as I hate to ask, there is no other choice. . As you know, this long-running publication has always used that analogy for this publication in inviting all to "set sail with DailyCatholic.org" 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 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, I need to raise $5,000.00 for this apostolate to continue as it has been. I set that amount for we have always budgeted $25,000. a year in donations and to date since January the total is $7,000. and we're almost half-way through the year. Hopefully you can more readily see the deficit and why the DailyCatholic's plight is nearing a crisis point. 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.


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

For Low Masses there is a commemoration within the Octave of the Feast of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist and the Vigil of the Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul tomorrow, as well as today's feast of the holy Bishop and Martyr St. Irenaeus. Information as to the life of the holy Father of the Church Saint Irenaeus, Bishop of Lyons, is scarce, and in some measure inexact. He was born in Proconsular Asia, or at least in some province bordering thereon, in the first half of the second century; the exact date is controverted, between the years 115 and 125, according to some, or, according to others, between 130 and 142. It is certain that, while still very young, Irenaeus had seen and heard the holy Bishop St. Polycarp (d. 155) at Smyrna. During the persecution of ...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 four 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

Bishop Daniel Dolan brings us a sermon from eight years ago, courtesy of Traditional Catholic Sermons, on St. Irenaeus, but he focuses first on why we have the Vigil of Sts. Peter and Paul in reparation for the offenses against the Apostolic See, today so besmirched by the false 'popes' who claim the throne in this time of the Great Apostasy. St. Irenaeus refused to compromise to get along. Not so today sadly. Irenaeus was a disciple of St. John the beloved Apostle. He became a great missionary and able to learn several languages to communicate the Faith against heresy when already satan was attacking the Church just as he does today. St. Irenaeus has been able to refute the blasphemies way back then that have risen their ugly heads again today. We can go to school on the teachings of this holy Bishop and Martyr as Bishop Dolan explains in shares this magnificent foe of heresy St. Irenaeus

Today's Double of the First Class Feast has a Common Octave with two stations, the one at St. Peter's, the other at St. Paul's. On June 29 A.D. 67, St. Peter was crucified, head downward, by order of Nero, on a hill overlooking the Vatican. On the same day, St. Paul was beheaded outside one of the gates of Rome. The Romans celebrated this feast with splendor equal to, if not surpassing, that of Easter. There are two stations, the one at St. Peter's, the other at St. Paul's, but in both Masses the Collects are common to the two apostles indissolubly united in a single prayer. It is just because of this ancient feeling which is common not only to the Romans, but to all the Fathers, that the two Founders of the Roman Church can never be divided. Tradition has preserved the memory of the places in which St. Peter and St. Paul dwelt. It is ...More

Bishop Daniel Dolan brings us a short sermon from six years ago, courtesy of Traditional Catholic Sermons, on Sts. Peter and Paul, focusing on how these two giant saints of the Church are known for their penitence, of course, St. Peter, Christ's first appointed Vicar on earth denied Him three times, and St. Paul was converted, turning from persecuting Christians to becoming the great Apostle to the Gentiles. The Bishop notes that because we are in this time of the Great Apostasy, the Holy Father Peter's true successor - is taken away from us for a while as God so allows heretics to occupy the throne setting up a false church, but with the ordination of every true priest we are presented with sons that will carry on the true Faith and, in God's time, the Church will be resurrected. We take this opportunity to ask everyone to pray for priests, for they are satan's number one target just as in the earliest times of the Church the devil assailed Sts. Peter and Paul

In this time when technology has run amok and everybody has an opinion on everything under the sun few think to remember that in the end only one opinion counts: God's! And it's called Judgment Day. It will be gut-check time for no one can escape the Trinity's judgment. It is truly amazing in these times when everyone talks of everything but the Last Four Things which are Death, Judgment, Heaven and hell incorporated as De Novissimis. It it truly the Final Four and we're not talking the NCAA but rather the Day of Reckoning that ultimately charts our path; a path that we choose freely by how we lived. What our destination will be will be decided by the Supreme Court in Heaven. The evidence that will tip the scales in our favor will be determined by how we lived in accord with the divine Will as we see in Step Seventeen, Judgment Day

As we complete the month of June, there is a commemoration on this feast of St. Peter and one each within the Octave of Sts. Peter and Paul and within the Octave of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist. From Saint Paul himself we know that he was born at Tarsus in Cilicia (Acts 21:39), of a father who was a Roman citizen (Acts 22:26-28; cf. 16:37), of a family in which piety was hereditary (2 Timothy 1:3) and which was much attached to Pharisaic traditions and observances (Philippians 3:5-6). St. Jerome relates, on what ground is not known, that his parents were natives of Gischala, a small town of Galilee and that they brought him to Tarsus when Gischala was captured by the Romans ...More

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

Bishop Daniel Dolan brings us a short sermon from six years ago, courtesy of Traditional Catholic Sermons, on Saint Paul, and the traditions the Church has followed in honoring this Apostle of the Gentiles who had been the enemy of Christ. The Bishop speaks of how the catechumens are taught and the safeguards against satan. Too often we are blinded like Paul and cannot see the obvious - the truths of our Faith and, like Paul we need to be knocked off our high horses so that we can realize the true purpose of our life's existence. As Paul himself said in 2 Thessalonians 2: 10, we need to recognize the lie and be on our guard constantly against the devil for the venomous serpent of hell searches out souls. But if we open our eyes to the truth we'll be able to avoid the poisonous viper. Bishop Dolan explains in his seven and a half minute sermon on Saint Paul the Apostle

This Most Precious Blood was shed in the Circumcision, the Agony, the Crowning with thorns and supremely in the Crucifixion of our Savior Jesus Christ and it is offered daily in the Sacrifice of the Altar. The Missal gives today the Octave of St. John the Baptist, which, however, only appears in the Roman Calendar during the late Middle Ages. In the liturgical reform of Pope St. Pius X this day was chosen for the feast of the Most Precious Blood, which had already been fixed under Pius IX for the first Sunday in July. Blessed Pius IX instituted this feast in thanksgiving for the deliverance of the Apostolic See from the violent revolutionaries who had expelled the Pope. In 1849, with the assistance of the French army, they were vanquished and the Pope was able to return to Rome. The meaning of this festival is closely akin to that of the Sacred Heart. The Precious Blood is the price of universal redemption, which love would not have to be anything less than itself. There is a very close connection between the Heart and the Blood not only because, according to St. John the Beloved Disciple, after the death of Jesus, blood ...More

Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a nine-minute sermon given two years ago on this First Class Feast by Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI, Rector of St. Joseph Seminary at the City of Mary in Rathdrum, Idaho. Father points out that every single drop of the Blood He shed was of infinite value. Blood was shed from His circumcision to the Agony in the Garden to His brutal scourging and crowning of thorns and then His crucifixion as well as being pierced with a lance where poured forth blood and water, re-enacted at each Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in an unbloody manner with the wine confected into His Most Precious Blood. He is the Lamb of God and the sacrifices of the Old Testament, such as the paschal lambs, would have had no value had not they foreshadowed the Victim on the Cross and continued today in the Traditional Latin Mass at the transubstantiation where the Passover continues but in a truly salvific manner for He offered Himself for our sins as we understand fully by the shedding of The Most Precious Blood of Jesus

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. Is that so much to ask? We can see the end result of our good fruits in Step Nineteen, The Church Triumphant

Blessed Mary's first action after God had come to dwell in her was one of self-denying charity. She undertook a troublesome journey in order to visit her cousin Elizabeth. Thus she proclaimed charity to be the virtue which above all Christ brought with Him from Heaven. God made Mary's visit the occasion of a wonderful miracle. On her entrance into St. Elizabeth's dwelling, St. John Baptist was cleanssd from sin in his mother's womb. Mary was the channel of this exceptional privilege~ of the cleansing away of sin in the case of the unborn child. As then, so now: Mary is the channel of all graces, and above all, of the restoration of the sinner to friendship with God. Mary's' charity is not less present now than at the time of the Visitation. Nay, she is far more eager now than then to promote the happiness and console the sorrows of those who fly to her for succor. Ember Friday in Advent was the original date for this feast. The celebration by the Greeks on July 2nd of the placing of the robe of the Blessed Virgin in the Basilica of ...More

Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a nine-minute sermon given eight years ago for the feast of the Visitation by Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great in Cincinnati, Ohio. His Excellency points out that the Visitation is the triumph of the Most Precious Blood which is flowing through the womb of Christ's holy mother Mary. St. John the Baptist, whose Octave Day was just yesterday, recognized Its salvific flow as he leapt in Elizabeth's womb. The Bishop emphasizes why and when this feast was established as well as treating the holy martyrs commemorated this day Sts. Processus & Martinian who received the Baptism of Blood. The meeting of Mary and Elizabeth is a coming together of love and total peace as His Excellency explains the words in the Gospel of St. Luke for this feast of The Visitation

John Gregory provides an insightful inspiration on the Visitation where Our Lady dismissed all concerns for herself to minister to others, most notably her cousin St. Elizabeth who was further along in her pregnancy than Mary. Elizabeth recognized in Mary God's design for her younger cousin as did the babe in her womb - Saint John the Baptist who, though not conceived free of Original Sin was sanctified at the presence of the Babe in Mary's womb - the fetus of the God-Man. In this time when man's uncharity towards his fellow man is legend, we need to refocus on the intention for the Second Joyful Mystery - charity towards our neighbor out of our love for God. This charity is not reserved only for a select few, but all we meet. This charity is not about doing only humane things for others, but going well beyond that in doing all we can to do all in our power to see that our neighbor will save his eternal soul. This means charitably rebuking, correcting and admonishing if our neighbor has veered from the path God intended, and that means knowing our Faith so others will know it and convert. That's the greatest charity we can do for others because we do not want to see them condemned. That's what can happen as Jesus so clearly told us in St. Matthew 28: 20 and St. Mark 16: 16. John shares the meditation of The Second Joyful Mystery: The Visitation
    For this Double of the Second Class Feast of the Visitation, Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey provides an inspirational piece for that says it all about the charity our Blessed Mother extends to all in his piece. Magnficat

Pope Saint Leo II was elected in 682. His date of birth unknown; but his death was on June 28, the following year. He was a Sicilian, and son of one Paul. Though elected pope a few days after the death of St. Agatho (January 10, 681), he was not consecrated till after the lapse of a year and seven months (17 Aug, 682). Under Leo's predecessor St. Agatho, negotiations had been opened between the Holy See and Emperor Constantine Pogonatus concerning the relations of the Byzantine Court to papal elections. Constantine had already promised Agatho to abolish or reduce the tax which for about a century the popes had had to pay to the imperial treasury on the occasion of their consecration, and under Leo's successor he made other changes in what had hitherto been required of the Roman Church at the time of a papal election. In all probability, therefore, it was continued correspondence on this matter which caused the delay of the imperial confirmation of Leo's election, and hence the long postponement of his consecration. The most important act accomplished by Leo in his short pontificate was his confirmation of the acts of the Sixth Oecumenical Council (680-1).
This council had been held in Constantinople against the Monothelites, and had been presided over by the legates of Pope Agatho. After Leo had notified the emperor that the decrees of the council had been confirmed by him, he proceeded to make them known to ...More

On the feast of the holy Pope St. Leo II we commemorate a most important Apostolic Constitution issued by another holy Pope, His Holiness Pope St. Pius X. Today is the 108th anniversary of that papal decree being circulated on the Syllabus of Errors condemning the mother heresy of heresies - Modernism. It is interesting to note this was the first of three steps in doing all he could to crush Modernism for he proclamated this decree three months prior to his longer infallible decree Pascendi Domenici Gregis in which he would follow up three years later with the mandatory Oath Against Modernism for all clergy, pastors, confessors, preachers, religious superiors and professors in philosophical-theological seminaries. All this he did to preserve the integrity of the holy Faith. You would think his measures were failsafe, but alas, we know the devil is powerful as has been proven over the past fifty plus years during this time of the Great Apostasy which you will truly understand more clearly once you have read Lamentabili Sane

Advent represents the period of waiting for the promised Redeemer, and this lesson deals with why and what God promised through His prophets in the Old Covenant. Yes, the Old Testament gives testament to its reason for existing: to prepare man for the coming of the Second Adam, Jesus Christ the God-Man through the Second Eve, the immaculate Blessed Virgin Mary. In a reverse of creation, it would be through the Second Eve that the Second Adam would come into this world. "How could this be?" was the cry of those from Genesis through the Machabbees. All that was to come was clearly foretold by His chosen prophets who were, for the most part, scorned and ridiculed and yet, it was merely a manifestation that God always writes straight with crooked lines in utilizing man to convey the majesty of our Supreme Creator the Triune Divinity. In step Twenty-one we see The Promised Redeemer

Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a six and a half-minute sermon given eight years ago by Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great in Cincinnati, Ohio. His excellency's words on this holy Pope who reveals that Leo was a saint of the liturgy who sought to uproot the heresy that Christ did not have a human will. The bishop shows how this equates with Modedrnism in our time where the heresy went underground before raising its ugly head at Vatican II. The one difference is there was a true Pope at the time, St. Leo II to turn to and trust. The tape runs out as he is talking about St. Anthony in a special devotion of the Thirteen Tuesdays to the holy Doctor of the Church. The Bishop shares the importance of Pope St. Leo II

The Mass of the Blessed Virgin shows us Mary as Mother of our Savior. She was predestined from all eternity for the role of co-redemptrix (Epistle), for as Eve was the intermediary chosen by the angel of darkness to bring about the fall of Adam, so also Mary the intermediary to whom the angel Gabriel delivered the message of salvation from Heaven. She is also blessed since she heard the word of God and obeyed it (Gospel). See Salve, sancta parens

On this "Independence" Day let us realize we are not independent, but totally dependent upon Jesus Christ our Sovereign King, and if we are duped into buying into the CONciLIAR religion of man, we will never be independent. We must work to restore all things in Christ. Below is a prayer sent in by Joe Omlor. It is a...
Prayer for the Conversion of the USA
    Dear God, bring the Faith to our beloved country. It was once a virgin land wherein the only praise was that of the murmur of the Mass on the shores, the hills and the prairies. Zealous priests and explorers claimed it for Thee, giving Thy Holy Name to its rivers, lakes and cities. From east to west they traveled, from mission to mission, from Mass to Mass until the land was encircled by prayer and gave of its bounty to Thy glory. And now it is dedicated to Thy Immaculate Mother. May she find America again, as she once found the lost Child Jesus in the Temple. May she touch the hearts of our people, disposing them to receive the ancient faith, and thus showing them the things that are to their peace. We ask this of Thee through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

From the root of Jesse to the Annunciation souls waited for the Messias and, good to His Promise, God delivered. The Incarnation remains such a wonderful mystery in the divine insemination by the Holy Ghost in the womb of the Immaculate Ark of the Covenant, who is the Blessed Virgin Mary by way of her divine Spouse thanks to the heavenly Father she would bear His only-begotten Son. Her humble fiat, recorded for all posterity in St. Luke 1: 26-31 and confirmed by her cousin St. Elizabeth in the same chapter, verses 41-56 is only magnified the more by Mary's magnificent Magnificat. The Holy Trinity knew exactly what They were doing in choosing Mary from all time to be the holy living tabernacle for the Son of God. No other receptacle would do to usher in the Savior through the Gate of Heaven, Mary Immaculate as we see in step Twenty-Two The Prophecy Fulfilled

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:

      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."

    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.

    The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary. And she conceived of the Holy Ghost.

    Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

    Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

    Behold the handmaid of the Lord. Be it done unto me according to Thy word.

    Hail Mary...

    And the Word was made flesh. And dwelt among us.

    Hail Mary...

    Pray for us, O holy Mother of God. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

    Let us pray.
    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.

    Angelus Domini nuntiavit Mariae. Et concepit de Spiritu Sancto.

    Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructis ventris tui, Jesus.

    Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.

    Ecce ancilla Domini. Fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum.

    Ave Maria...

    Et Verbum caro factum est. Et habitavit in nobis.

    Ave Maria...

    Ora pro nobis, sancta Dei Genitrix. Ut digni efficiamur promissionibus Christi.

    Gratiam tuam, quaesumus Domine, mentibus nostris infunde: ut qui, Angelo nuntiante, Christi Filii tui incarnationem cognovimus, per passionem ejus et crucem ad resurrectionis gloriam perducamur. Per eumdem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.
