    The last Sunday in October is traditionally the glorious Double of the First Class Feast of Christ the King, which supersedes the 22nd Sunday after Pentecost, submitting the latter to merely a commemoration. This feast was initiated by His Holiness Pope Pius XI in 1925 to be celebrated on the Sunday before the Feast of All Saints in his Encyclical Quas Primas. There follows after the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass the Sacred Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. All kneel in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament and, with the priest, recite the consecration; then the Litany of the Sacred Heart and Benediction. Those in the state of Sanctifying Grace by making a good Confession within eight days and worthily receiving Holy Communion receive a plenary indulgence in praying the Consecration.

    We know what is happening. It is all playing out as the scriptures and prophets have foretold. But if we remain silent, if we retreat into our little traditional refuges then we will be letting God down by not doing our part in the overall restoration of the true Church in this time of the Great Apostasy where so many souls have been deceived. By doing nothing, we are condoning that deception and will have to answer to the Supreme Judge at our particular judgment.

   One whose DNA refused to do nothing and who did everything he could to restore the true Church in San Diego was Louis Joseph Ramirez, Sr. who passed away, so appropriately on October 7th the feast of the Most Holy Rosary at the age of 89. He was, if you will, the Godfather of Tradition in San Diego. It was he and his beloved wife Ramona, who passed away several years ago, who invited Fr. Denis Chicoine, CMRI to come to San Diego and establish a mission there, transforming his spacious National City entertainment room into a beautiful little private chapel. There since 1973 it has served basically as the only private chapel in San Diego where the True Presence has been kept perpetually in the Tabernacle with Mass almost daily. Louis assisted at almost every one of those Holy Masses up until a few months ago when he took ill and was admitted to the VA Hospital in La Jolla. He served in the Army during World War II and thus received full military honors at his burial services at Greenwood Memorial Cemetery that was immediately preceded by a Requiem High Mass before a standing-room only congregation of friends and relatives on Monday, October 19. The pastor of Our Lady of Fatima Traditional Catholic parish Fr. Gerard McKee, CMRI was the celebrant, assisted by Fr. Dominic Radecki, CMRI and Fr. James McGilloway, CMRI with the pastor of Mt. St. Michael's in Spokane, Fr. Casimir Puskorius, CMRI magnificently manning the choir organ. Long-time parishioners Torben Bruck and Douglas Praska served as Acolytes.

   Louis truly lived his faith as a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, mentor and friend to all. The fruits of his labors are evident in the six children, 26 grandchildren and 44 great-grandchildren. No doubt he and Ramona took seriously the charge to repopulate Heaven. Though few would surmise he'd spend much time in Purgatory, if none at all since he died with the Last Sacraments and in the state of Sanctifying Grace, it is still Catholic doctrine that we pray for his immortal soul and, if Louis is already dancing with the angels, which those who knew and loved him greatly expect, then those prayers will go to another needed soul. In other words, no prayer is ever wasted.

   Louis' middle name was Joseph; and it was the foster-father of Jesus and chaste protector of the Blessed Virgin Mary whom he loved so much. It was no coincidence that God took him home during the month of the holy Rosary and the month when we pray the special Prayer of St. Joseph each day following recitation of the Rosary. There is also another prayer to his patron saint that meant so much to Louis. See Special Prayer to St. Joseph

    Louis, who will be dearly missed, has passed the baton of tradition on to his most capable and devoted and devout son Louis Jr. who at 63 has many years ahead of him in realizing his dad's dream of the restoration of the true Church and the hoped-for total demise of the CONciLIAR church that ushered in the Great Apostasy. In lieu of flowers, those who want to honor Louis Sr. can make a contribution to Our Lady of Fatima parish in his name by calling Louis Jr. at 619-200-9284 or emailing him at louisramirez@sdcoxmail.com For more on the life of this devout soul, see Tribute to Louis Ramirez Sr.

    It was no coincidence that Louie died on Our Lady's feast day of her Most Holy Rosary for he was dedicated to her holy Psalter and seldom missed a day. He would tell you in his friendliest disarming manner that we all need to continue to pray the Holy Rosary as often as our states in life permit. 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 now an hour earlier at 7 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time. On the east coast this would be 10 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, Central 9 p.m., and 8 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. That will provide the grace to...

    We are now in the final week of what Novus Ordo Watch properly calls Vatican III, more specifically the so-called "Synod of the Family" which is really a SIN-ODD from the heresies that have so cleverly evolved where now they are out-and-out blatant. For everything you need to know about this sacrilegious blasphemy going on in Rome, see Complete Coverage and commentary on the Synod. Despite what is going on, the Resist-and-Recognize camp still cling to calling him "Pope". Someday, someway, somehow they will awake from their slumber. They will raise their necks from the sand and voila, they will realize sedevacantists have been right all along. Pray for that day. We're reminded what Jesus said in St. John 15: 18-19, "If the world hate you, know ye, that it hath hated Me before you. If you had been of the world, the world would love its own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, on account of this the world hates you." We can see how those who have no love for the true Catholic Church fawn over Mr. Bergoglio the unFrancis just as Our Lord foretold and what holy scriptures portend in Daniel 7: 25, Galatians 1: 8-10, 2 Thessalonians 2: 3-11, 2 Timothy 4: 3-4, 1 John 2: 18, 22, Apocalypse 13: 5 not to mention chapters 17 and 18. Mr. Bergoglio the unFrancis has gone beyond the pale where even more secular voices are asking "Is the pope Catholic?". We answer with a resounding "No!" and every time he opens his mouth that becomes more and more evident to even the uneducated. No wonder he hates true Catholicism so as we continue to expose the Great Apostasy fostered by Vatican 2. Continuing his humanistic live-and-let-live, live-by-the-golden-rule platitudes, never did he proclaim Jesus Christ as necessary for salvation. Never did he proclaim the only way to true peace is through the Social Kingdom of Christ as our Sovereign King. No, it was all temporal that at times in his political correctness seemed almost pantheistic and whenever he did refer to the Lord it was for things Jesus did to help someone temporally. Not once did he reference St. John 8: 11, "Go, and now sin no more" You see Mercy is two-fold. If we are to expect God's mercy, then we must be willing to amend our lives. That part of it was missing. No surprise because Bergoglio, the worst of the worst, preaches to go by one's conscience and that one's Catholic faith is not that important, as long as you have food and water. He is humanistic to a fault and trying with all his might to make it more difficult for true Catholics and easy on pseudo-Catholics and non-Catholics. Keep in mind Our Lord's words in St. Matthew 12: 8-9, "And I say to you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God. But he that shall deny me before men, shall be denied before the angels of God."

    Typical of this Marxist Modernist, who couches his platitudes in the heresy of relativism, he has so duped the majority of souls and will do even more damage with the upcoming Synod in Rome which more appropriately should be spelled SIN-odd since it is not only odd, but totally antithetical to call a democratic summit to talk about easing Catholic restrictions that have alway been upheld. This SIN-odd grew from Jorge's own acceptance of mediocrity and his statement that "we must be more lenient toward homosexuals, couples using contraception and living together outside of marriage, and the divorced" bodes toward a total liberalization of the Modernist church. It is a moral implosion that threatens more souls by making life on earth easier, yet much, much harder to get to Heaven, even if they can receive the wafer and CONciLIAR kool aid. I guarantee it won't help souls. God's not for it, satan loves it. That tells you everything.

    To many it would seem the gates have shackled what to the world appears as the Catholic Church today. We know that is impossible because Christ prommised that would not happen. Therefore, it is only logical to syllogize that the church posing as Catholic is nothing but an evil imposter intent on 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. 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.

    We've documented before many of the bizarre things he's said off the hip and formally that the world takes one way while Traditional Catholics see through the veneer and can peg his agenda so clearly. That's another reason he has targeted Traditional Catholics many times in derisively calling them "neo-pelagians" and worse. He can't touch sedes, so he focuses on those who subscribe to the Recognize-and-Resist camp. We've seen his hatchet job on the Franciscans of the Immaculate last year and now the SSPX. Do those who cling to the Society really want to align with these apostates? Puhlease. When, oh when will those in the Recognize-and-Resist camp wake up to the fact UNfrancis can't possibly be a true pope, let alone even be Catholic? His tactics are the way liberals and Marxists operate as is obvious from his humanist ridiculous, sacrilegious eco-cyclical and catering to Islam. But then, as he and his ilk proffer so humbly (yeah, right!), who wouldn't agree that we must not be concerned with "small-minded rules"? Those are supposedly passé in today's world. Who should want those? Every true Catholic worth their salt, that's who. And those who still remain Recognize-and-Resisters had better realize that the world loves to hear this. Shouldn't that tell everyone, who has ears to hear, that he is anathema, and worse, quite possibly the antichrist; definitely a precursor to thee antichrist.

    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. 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 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 Christorchaos.com 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.

    As these sites above point out, 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.

   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.

    I know it's becoming monotonous to keep reminding our readers, but with bills in arrears of $1,500.00 we have no choice but to ask for donations. First, we cannot continue to publish if donations do not increase, especially monthly pledges so that we can budget. Secondly, this is a labor of love and there are no salaries or any perks that other non-profits provide their executive directors, often in six figures. We're fortunate to garner the low two figures and we're grateful for that even though our debts are the same or higher. It's just a fact of life and we've repeated it so many time, it gets so tiresome mentioning that it's the same loyal benefactors who always answer the call, but few others. Ask yourself why? Ask yourself if you do not have a duty before God to help those who labor in the field for Jesus and His True Church with no compromises to the false faith, the "mystery of iniquity" that has deceived so many. Is your heart that hardened that you wouldn't give for a worthy cause? Is not pledging a monthly donation worth it for perpetuating the one true Faith? The answer can only be determined by you and what you deem to be generous and worthy. 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 royalty of Christ rests upon a twofold basis. He is our King by right of birth and by right of conquest. The first refers us to the personality of the son of God, whereby, in His divine nature as God, and, by virtue of the hypostatic union, He is the sovereign Lord and Master. The second places before us the God-man coming down on earth to to rescue fallen man from the slavery of Satan, and by the labors and sufferings of His life, and passion, and death to win a glorious victory for us over sin and hell. A special liturgical feast in honor of the Kingship of our Lord Jesus Christ, to be celebrated throughout the world on the last Sunday in October, was instituted at the end of the Holy Year Of Jubilee by His Holiness Pius XI. The Pontiff points out in his encyclical letter on this occasion that people are instructed in the truths of faith, and brought to appreciate the inner joys of religion far more effectually by the annual celebration of our sacred mysteries than by any pronouncement, however weighty, of the teaching of the ...More

There is a commemoration for the Collect, Secret and Postcommunion at all Low Masses for the 22nd Sunday. We must render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, i.e., observe the law of Justice, and render to God the things that are God's, i.e., the soul made in the image of its Creator must render to Him the tribute of adoration and obedience. On this Sunday, one of the last of the ecclesiastical year, the Church is full of thought "of the day of Christ" (Epistle) or of the approaching end of the world. "If the Lord considers our iniquities, who will stand before Him?" (Introit). Wherefore the liturgy speaks to us of divine mercy (Introit, Secret). But, to obtain it we must be full of mercy ourselves. "It is good and pleasant indeed for brothers to be united" (Gradual). In the hour of danger, let us use the prayers of the Church which have an eminently social and fraternal character, and which will 22nd Sunday after Pentecost

Bishop Donald Sanborn with a 27-minute sermon given six years ago on the Kingship of Christ

We continue this special feature provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. With the type so small in most bibles, we publish it here in larger type in conjunction with the Epistle and Gospel for the Sunday Mass and special feasts, with the cogent comprehensive Catholic Commentary penned by Father George Leo Haydock. For the Double of the First Class Solemnity of Christ the King Father Haydock provides all the proof necessary to illustrate the Sovereign Kingship of Christ over all in Heaven and on earth; something lost on most who inhabit this planet. St. Paul, in addressing the Colossians, gives an adept explanation of why Jesus is King once and for all and the Lord affirms this when confronted by Pilate for it confirms that he was betrayed by one and put to death by another. Our Lord asserts that His kingdom is not of this world and if we are to remain His loyal subjects we must unite with Him in suffering so that we may be worthy through His merits to enjoy eternal life in His kingdom as can be seen in Uncompromising Loyalty to our King

On December 11, 1925 His Holiness Pope Pius XI decreed to the Universal Church that the last Sunday of October would be the Double of the First Class Feast of Christ the King. As such, it supersedes the 23rd Sunday after Pentecost, submitting the latter to merely a commemoration. This feast was initiated to remind the world that Christ is our Sovereign King and we all must pay due homage to our heavenly king by being obedient servants and strive to establish His kingdom - the Social Reign of Jesus Christ here on earth. His Holiness declared this in his Encyclical Quas Primas. There follows after the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass the Sacred Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. All kneel in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament and, with the priest, recite the consecration; then the Litany of the Sacred Heart and Benediction. Those in the state of Sanctifying Grace by making a good Confession within eight days and worthily receiving Holy Communion receive a plenary indulgence in praying the Consecration.

For the Twenty-Second Sunday after Pentecost Fr. George Leo Haydock compiles commentaries on most verses of today's Epistle and Gospel that should hit home with the whole religious liberty heresy that so many Americans have bought into. Yes, we must render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, but too few realize the more important to render to God the things that are God's. We are all God's children, ergo His. The democratic system established in the U.S. has more and more forgotten that and incurred moral corruption in every venue of society, government and ecclesially. St. Paul pleads in his Epistle to not look for temporal treasures, but rather spiritual treasures. In this time when there is global economic collapse and terrorism throughout let us pray more take that advice. And in the Gospel, perhaps the best advice we can glean from today's commentaries in the Gospel and Epistle are the warning words of St. Athanasius, Pope Clement XIV, and St. Ambrose. We should remember the latter's words, "A good emperor is within the Church, but not above the Church." The "emperors" who have been ruling are not within the Church. Yay, they are enemies of Christ. Enough is enough! Stand for the faith and render all priorities to God. "Render to God the things that are God's"

Today in the Revelations and Prophesies Imparted to St. Bridget of Sweden Our Lady tells her about two wives, one of whom is called Pride and the other Humility (the latter signifying the most sweet Virgin Mary) We see how the Virgin Mary comes to meet those who love her at the moment of their death. Mary uses the imagery of three gates that those who lust after the world, the flesh and the devil are willing to go for Pride. Their fate is never good for they place all their hopes and efforts in fleeting things that destine them to a fate worse than death as seen in Chapter Twenty-Nine of Book One Pride vs. Humility: No Contest

Pope Saint Evaristus, who succeeded St. Clement and St. Anacletus as the Fifth Successor of St. Peter, governed the Church during nine years. He divided the various ecclesiastical regions of Rome among the titular presbyters and ordered that seven deacons should surround the Pope when he preached. He was put to death for the Faith in the year 112. See the Mass Si diligis Me

Bishop Daniel Dolan with a 46-minute talk on Rosary History and Miracles

In Chapter Six of the late Father James F. Wathen's irrefutable work, Father broke it down into the burden that the "New Mass" laid on the priests and the people. In part one he focused on the burden placed on those who confect the sacrament and how, in the Novus Ordo, transubstantiation can't possibly happen because those who embrace this new religion and the modern rite have lost the power through their defection and acceptance of this "abomination of desolation" in their eagerness to open the Church to the world. World 1, newChurch 0. Father brought up the vow priests take and the Oath against Modernism in addition to obedience to the divine Law over man-made laws. By accepting the "New Mass" in blind obedience, the salt has lost its flavor and is good for nothing but to be cast out as Christ affirms in St. Matthew 5: 13. The Burden of the Priests

Today in the Revelations and Prophesies Imparted to St. Bridget of Sweden Jesus relates to His bride how many false Christians are being multiplied, and how they are crucifying Him again with the torture tools of wood, iron, and gall. Few console Him, and yet, because of His everlasting Love He is still prepared to suffer death once more for the sake of sinful people, if this were possible. He offers the imagery of three simple things, a bed to rest, a seat to sit and a lamp to provide light for it is by the light of faith that we believe and follow Him as seen in Chapter Thirty of Book One The Immortal One's Mercy for Mortals

During this month of the Most Holy Rosary we continue to bring you John Gregory's envisaging meditation on each Mystery to enhance our own praying of Mary's holy Psalter each day. Today John provides insight from various reliable sources to enhance the meditation on the Resurrection. The best meditation to inspire on the Resurrection of Our Lord and what followed up to His Ascension can be gleaned from Sacred Scripture and the holy Gospels of the Four Evangelists. What is remarkable is how the four accounts so readily strengthen each other as John Gregory shows regarding First Glorious Mystery

    Anticipation is a sign of solicitude and zeal, and therefore the Church, because she is full of love, anticipates the liturgical solemnities in her prayers. A typical example of this zeal is found In the lives of some of the early saints like St. Nicholas of Myra and the Patriarch St. Benedict, of whom we are told that in their prayer they even anticipated the liturgical night vigils.

In part two of Chapter Six, Father Wathen turned to the faithful in informing them that it was his duty as a priest, a pastor and confessor to inform them of their grave error in following this wayward course Paul VI had set them on. This is one of the more important chapters for it leaves no excuses for the people to attend this "abomination of desolation" for it is definitely harmful to the soul. Father pointed out that one is forbidden by the Church to "act under doubt where a question of morality or liceity exists in a case where the Mass or the Sacraments are concerned. In a word, one is bound in conscience to choose the safer course". Needless to say, attending the "New Mass" is not safe. In fact, Father went so far as to counsel all that to attend the Novus Ordo is a mortal sin. Wow! Think of the consequences. Since there have been no true priests ordained in the new rite since 1968, they cannot absolve sins. That is one of the most tragic and bitter fruits of this new experiment that has gone horribly wrong. The Burden of the People

During this month of the Most Holy Rosary we continue to bring you John Gregory's envisaging meditation on each Mystery to enhance our own praying of Mary's holy Psalter each day. Today John provides insight from various reliable sources to enhance the meditation on the Ascension. The Son of God has gone to prepare a place for us, and thus the effects of the Ascension remain an on-going mystery for Christ continues to prepare for us at the Father's right hand and in that wondrous news is extended the greatest hope to all for where Christ has gone He waits for us to follow in a place of everlasting happiness for those who are obedient to His teachings and cooperate with the divine Will. Just as Jesus left instructions for His Apostles, He has left us inerrant instructions that, if we follow fully, will assure us of being with Him forever. John provides reflections on the Second Glorious Mystery

The painting here of St. Bridget is so beautifully depicted in the painting by Michelle R. Maher. To see a larger copyrighted image click on the painting here. Today in the Revelations and Prophesies imparted to St. Bridget of Sweden St. John the Baptist appears to Bridget to explain the details of the crown the Queen of Heaven and earth wears, right down to the seven lilies and the seven precious gems all describing her holy attributes and virtues in Chapter Thirty-One of Book One No other crown would do

On this day we celebrate two Apostles Saint Simon and Saint Jude Thaddeus, most probably because some historians have them being martyred together. The name of Simon occurs in all the passages of the Gospel and Acts, in which a list of the Apostles is given. To distinguish him from St. Peter he is called (Matthew 10:4; Mark 3:18) Kananaios, or Kananites, and Zelotes (Luke 6:15; Acts 1:13). Both surnames have the same signification and are a translation of ...More

Bishop Daniel Dolan with six minute sermon from seven years ago on Sts. Simon and Jude

Up until his death in November 2006, no one had been able to refute his challenge first issued in 1971 when he released his benchmark work The Great Sacrilege. There is little, make that no chance anyone will refute his words since it is backed by common sense and the sensus Catholicus of holy Mother Church. Father realized that when he used Chapter Seven to issue forth a challenge to any and all who could prove him wrong. But he was not content with just challenging, but to get in their face by accusing any priest who accepts the "New Mass" as "an idolater, a fraud, and a coward". Father was never one to back down, especially when he knew he was right. He knew without a shadow of doubt that no one could and he listed the reasons why. He felt it was better for him to confront them now rather than later when they stood before the divine Judge and were asked why did they not heed Father Wathen's wise counsel when he issued the Challenge

During this month of the Most Holy Rosary we continue to bring you John Gregory's envisaging meditation on each Mystery to enhance our own praying of Mary's holy Psalter each day. Today John provides insight from various reliable sources to enhance the meditation on the Descent of the Holy Ghost upon the Apostles. Fifty days after our Lord Jesus Christ conquered death and ten days after He bodily ascended into Heaven, He made good on His promise to send His Spirit. The Holy Ghost came with a rush of grace and inspiration, transforming the formerly apprehensive Apostles into men of virtuous courage who were now ready to fully take up the command Christ had given them. The charism of the Church was born that day and the Faith spread rapidly with three thousand on the first day. A glorious day it was! John provides reflections on the Third Glorious Mystery

In Chapter Thirty-Two of Book One of the Prophesies and Revelations imparted to St. Bridget of Sweden we see where Our Lord shows His bride three tortured souls, two of whom refuse God's grace and embrace the world, the flesh and especially the devil, even though God was patient with them, enduring their sins. Whereas one man whom St. Bridget interceded for, and though his body was wasted by torture, his soul was saved giving all hope that hope is not lost as God exhorts His bride to choose poverty for herself and renounce riches and carnal behavior as He reveals to her The fate of three men who dealt with the devil

Let us remember in this Feria Mass that we must render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, i.e., observe the law of Justice, and render to God the things that are God's, i.e., the soul made in the image of its Creator must render to Him the tribute of adoration and obedience. This Feria Mass the Church is full of thought "of the day of Christ" (Epistle) or of the approaching end of the world. "If the Lord considers our iniquities, who will stand before Him ?" (Introit). Wherefore the liturgy speaks to us of divine mercy (Introit, Secret). But, to obtain it we must be full of mercy ourselves. "It is good and pleasant indeed for brothers to be united" (Gradual). In the hour of danger, let us ...More

Fr. Casimir Puskorius, CMRI with a 14-minute sermon given three years ago on Vivo Christo Rey

Father Wathen concluded his magnificent mission of alerting all as to the dire danger of the "New Mass" as he cited St. Paul's warning in Ephesians 6: 12 that is the devil who orchestrated this "abomination of desolation" as he said, "Any Catholic should see there will never be any peace or order in the Church or in the world at large unless there occur a restoration of the True Mass and the Ancient Faith. If this prospect disturbs outsiders, so be it. We have our souls to save, as well as theirs, and we cannot achieve this without our Mass". As we see in retrospect he was so right. The world is in turmoil, the church of Modernist Rome is the antithesis of the Church of Eternal Rome and would not be recognizable to anyone who preceded Vatican Two. You'll note we conclude Father's landmark book here and it coincides perfectly with the powerful words in Daniel 9: 27, which Our Lord referenced in St. Matthew 24: 15 the very same warning that Gabriel, the Angel of the Lord revealed to the prophet of the meaning of his vision. That is, "the desolation shall continue even to the consummation, and to the end". Not encouraging, yet it's vital souls don't get caught up in the the Great Apostasy which the graphic here represents for Our Lady foretold that "Rome would lose the Faith and become the seat of the antichrist". We see the antichrist/s seated on the throne of Peter and the abomination is the Novus Ordo, the "New Mass" which Father has been saying for all these chapters. Flee from it as fast as you can for your very soul is at stake. It's that serious. Father completed his book with the inserts of the text of Paul VI's Missale Romanum and the Oath every priest took before his ordination as he wrapped up his Conclusion

During this month of the Most Holy Rosary we continue to bring you John Gregory's envisaging meditation on each Mystery to enhance our own praying of Mary's holy Psalter each day. Today John provides insight from various reliable sources to enhance the meditation on the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven. From the time of the Blessed Mother being lifted up into Heaven at her Assumption it was a dogma of the Church and yet never fully proclaimed as such until His Holiness Pius XII decreed it in his encyclical Munificentissimus Deus on November 1, 1950 which is the compendium of meditation on the Assumption. John provides reflections on the Fourth Glorious Mystery

We continue to provide a chapter each day during October so readers can meditate on the contents of each short chapter and not be overwhelmed by too much. In Chapter Thirty-Three, Jesus admonishes His bride about true and false wisdom as He illustrates how the good angels always aid the wise who choose good, while the fallen angels give aid to those who are also wise, but choose to be evil through their own pride and vices in their priority of placing the world, the flesh, and the devil above God and eternal happiness as seen in Chapter Thirty-Three of Book One Worldly Wisdom Wasted

On this third straight Feria day we see where St. Paul describes for the Christian the armor he must put on to enable him to withstand in those woeful times the powers of hell (Epistle). He gives him a girdle, a shield, a helmet and a sword, so that, strengthened in the Lord, Whose will nothing can resist (Introit), he may be protected against those who persecute him (Communion ). Thus preserved from all adversity by the effect of the unceasing goodness of the Lord, the family of God, which is the Church, will be enabled to glorify His name by good works (Collect). Therefore the Gospel speaks to us of the charity towards our neighbor which is the abridgment of the whole morality of Christianity. ...More

Fr. Michael Oswalt presents a sermon from a few weeks ago: Many are called, but few are chosen

During this month of the Most Holy Rosary we continue to bring you John Gregory's envisaging meditation on each Mystery to enhance our own praying of Mary's holy Psalter each day. We have now arrived at the final of the fifteen mysteries - the glorious Coronation of the Blessed Virgin Mary as Queen of the Angels. What greater glory can there be for a lifetime of devotion and uncompromising fiat to the divine will than to be recognized for all time what the Blessed Mother accomplished in being crowned by her divine Son and heavenly Father with the assistance of the Holy Ghost, her divine Spouse. It is a lesson for us that indeed there is a light at the end of this worldly tunnel, a light from the Beatific Vision attainable only by adhering willingly and lovingly to the will of Almighty God for she is the Woman of the Apocalypse, with a crown of twelve stars. John provides reflections on See Fifth Glorious Mystery

We complete the month of October with Chaptere Thirty-Four of Book One of the Revelations and Prophesies imparted to St. Bridget of Sweden with Book One again Jesus returns to impart more wisdom to His bride as He imparts how she should live while she witnesses a conversation between the Son of God and His adversary the devil where the latter must admit to Christ that St. Bridget does indeed love Our Lord above all things. This puzzles the evil one who asks why she loves Him so much and why He has so much love for His bride as seen in From instability to stability

Bishop Daniel Dolan provides a 15-minute sermon for All Hallow's Eve Blessed Are the Poor in Spirit

John Gregory files an article he posted back in 2004 and nothing has changed except everything has become more obvious how devious satan is. On this All Hallows' Eve in which the pagan has taken over the day with the occult and the satanic ruling, it's important to identify something much more dangerous that should scare souls into the reality of what they have in the concilar church. One of the mechanisms for haunting souls into believing ghost stories not of the True Spirit but of a spooky synthetic synergy was the Vatican II document Sacrosanctum Concilium on the Sacred Liturgy. At least back in 1963 it was still sacred until the Council and Paul VI got their grimy hands on the sacrosanct. Now, over a half century later years later we can clearly see how they have turned what once were holy churches into haunted houses. No amount of decorating the conciliar zombie liturgy will alter what is behind the facade and what went down at the SIN-ODD just completed, well, you know the eanswer to that one. It's all more of the same hooey that hasn't a ghost of a chance to be pleasing to God and if it is not pleasing to Him, it can't be pleasing to man! John explains as he peels away the mask with Trick or Treat or Threat

We have continued to provide throughout the month of October a chapter each day so readers can meditate on the contents of each short chapter and not be overwhelmed by too much. In Chapter Thirty-Five, the Blessed Virgin Mary imparts to the bride St. Bridget of Sweden Our Lady's own sorrow at the suffering of her divine Son, and how the world was sold through Adam and Eve and bought back as with one heart through Christ and his Virgin Mother in Chapter Thirty-Three of Book One The Price of the Passion

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

    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."

    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.

    Ecce ancilla Domini. Fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum.

    Et Verbum caro factum est. Et habitavit in nobis.

    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.


        To thee, O blessed Joseph, we have recourse in our affliction, and having implored the help of thy thrice holy Spouse, we now, with hearts filled with confidence, earnestly beg thee also to take us under thy protection. By that charity wherewith thou wert united to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God, and by that fatherly love with which thou didst cherish the Child Jesus, we beseech thee and we humbly pray that thou wilt look down with gracious eye upon that inheritance which Jesus Christ purchased by His blood, and wilt succor us in our need by thy power and strength.

        Defend, O most watchful guardian of the Holy Family, the chosen off-spring of Jesus Christ. Keep from us, O most loving Father, all blight of error and corruption. Aid us from on high, most valiant defender, in this conflict with the powers of darkness. And even as of old thou didst rescue the Child Jesus from the peril of His life, so now defend God's Holy Church from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity. Shield us ever under thy patronage, that, following thine example and strengthened by thy help, we may live a holy life, die a happy death, and attain to everlasting bliss in Heaven. Amen.

      This Prayer to the Patron of the Universal Church was prescribed by His Holiness Pope Leo XIII to be recited after the daily Rosary during October, month of the Holy Rosary.
