   The very formation of Mary outside her mother Anne's womb is the focus of this week's feasts honoring Our Lady's birth and her parents naming her Mary (Maria) - a name that forever has stood for strength and purity. We basically bookend the regular work week with the Double of the Second Class Feast of the Nativity of Mary on Tuesday and the Greater Double Feast of the Holy Name of Mary on Saturday. September carries more feasts of the Blessed Mother than any other month. In addition, there are three different prayers this week. We continue with the last three days of the Novena for Mary's Nativity and the fourth day through nine for the Novena for her most Holy Name. In addition on Wednesday we begin prayers for her Seven Sorrows or Dolors with accompanying features leading to the Feast of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin next Tuesday following the Double of the Second Class Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross on next Monday.

    These beautiful devotions to Our Lady are basically lost today outside the Traditional Latin Mass groups because the apostate imposter posing as 'pope' in Rome, one Mr. Jorge Bergoglio, who, like his predecessors since 1958, are so taken with pleasing man that, through their words and actions have shown their true colors even though many are colorblind when it comes to black and white absolutes. The Argentinian Marxist's latest charade is allowing the SSPX priests to hear confessions in what he terms the 'Year of Mercy'. God have mercy on those who are so duped by this antichrist foretold by Our Lady at La Salette that "Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the antichrist." 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. 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.

    One of those pioneers in recognizing the New Order "Mass" was invalid was Fr. Paul Trinchard, S.T.L., the dauntless New Orleans true priest who headed up MAETA and whose published books include "New Mass" Is Conclusively Invalid, Apocalypse of the Mass, Latin Mass Prayers Explained, and The Fatima Apocalypse, to name just a few. We were notified by his secretary Denis Pettee on Friday, August 28, as he was in the funeral procession towards the cemetery following a Requiem Mass said by traditional priest Fr. James Wright, that Fr. Trinchard passed away peacefully on Sunday, August 23 and was being laid to rest in a family plot on the feast of one of his favorite saints, the Doctor of Grace St. Augustine. Just as the latter battled the Arian heresy, so also Fr. Trinchard was one of those who stayed true in fighting the CONciLIAR Modernist heresy and, as Denis, who is also CEO of Trinchard Publications and executor of Father's will, pointed out, they were able to carry out Father's wish that the Novus Ordo apparatchiks in New Orleans had no clue until he was safely buried. It reminds us of the Irish proverb, "May you be in Heaven before the devil knows you're dead." For the next few editions we will bring you one of the articles Father submitted to the DailyCatholic nearly a decade ago in tribute to this dedicated sacerdote who remains a priest forever according to the Order of Melchisedech.

    As Father often pointed 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. Therefore you need to...

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. We have begun the Nine-day Novena for the Holy Name of Mary leading to her feast on the Eleventh Saturday of the 15 Saturdays Rosary Crusade where the intention, coinciding with the first Glorious Mystery - the Resurrection - is Faith. Do we have the faith Christ expects of us? 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.

    Meanwhile on Mary's feast on August 22, we began to bring you a true Treasure of Tradition in the 50 Ave's that will continue up through October 11. Each day we bring you one of the chapters of St. Louis-Marie de Montfort's magnificent The Secret of the Rosary, signified by a rose on each bead composing the holy Rosary.

    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 $4,000.00 but are still a little more than $1,000.00 short of our necessary goal to continue publishing. Actually, because we had not reached our goal in time, the debit continues to grow. We desperately need donations and, as mentioned 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 the aquatic maritime 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. 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.

In the Gospel for the Fifteenth Sunday After Pentecost the Mass reminds us that having received the Holy Ghost at the Feast of Pentecost and Jesus in Holy Communion, our souls and bodies should be moved by the Spirit and entirely obedient to the operation of the divine gift of the Eucharist, so that it be no longer our own nature but the effect of this sacrament that dominates in ...More

Day Three

To enhance each Sunday's Epistle and Gospel we present this special feature provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. For the Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost we first see St. Paul's epistle to the Galatians in which he affirms that no one can fool God, man yes, but not God. He will not be mocked. This is exactly what is happening today and yet so many still want signs, the kind Our Lord works in St. Luke 7 in raising the dead son, healing the blind and deaf and still, the very multitudes who clamored for more, mocked God by being the same who abandoned Him at the hour of His Passion. Oh, man is a fickle lot and it does have consequences as to his actions. God is Not Mocked

Today St. Louis de Montfort begins the part two of how to recite Mary's holy Rosary and how important and beautiful the prayers are, after all they came from Heaven. He notes that "The Creed or the Symbol of the Apostles, which is said on the Crucifix of the Rosary is a holy summary of all Christian truths. It is a prayer that has great merit because faith is the root, foundation and beginning of all Christian virtues, of all eternal virtues and also of all prayers that are pleasing to Almighty God. 'He that cometh to God, must believe . . .'." The latter he quotes from Hebrews 11: 6 as he cites the first prayer - the Apostles Creed as he offers an Eleventh Rose for The Creed

Christ has snatched us from the death of sin as He once snatched the young man of Naim from natural death, and in this He responds to the compassion He feels for our mother the Church who laments over sinners, just as He was moved by the poor widow who lamented over her son. This supernatural life, which is that of the Church, must always dwell in us and bear fruit, making us not only avoid the works of the flesh, as St. Paul told ...More

In tribute to the late Fr. Paul Trinchard, S.T.L., we are rerunning an article once a week which he submitted nearly a decade ago. Father pointed out that if we don't pray and unite, we'll become prey to pride. It seems like a vicious circle as Traditionalists continue to bicker about the little things while the main issue they're in agreement with - the Immemorial Canonized Latin Mass - is undermined further by the CON ciLIAR church as countless 'Catholics' continue to applaud and follow the false conciliar emperor, not realizing he has no clothes. In fact, considering the fruits as Christ said in St. Matthew 7: 15-21, one would surely say, he is "fruitless" as well. This very word is ideal for describing the modernist church. What also is fruitless is for Traditionalists to continue to argue uncharitably over the little things. Look at the bigger picture and unite in things essential! Traditionalists Give Traditionalists A Bad Name

Besides the above prayer from St. Louis-Marie Grignon de Montfort, we have the magnificent inspiration he gave us of The Secret of the Rosary. Since the month of August this year is the 800th Anniversary of the holy Rosary, we want to bring you installments to enhance your devotion in praying the Rosary for those blessed beads are indeed, the most powerful weapons we have available 24-7. We present today de Montfort's continuation of what the Rosary is, beginning with part one of the Lord's Prayer as he explains the Our Father and how beautiful this prayer truly is as he offers Twelfth Rose for the Our Father Part One.

This festival of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary originated in the East where it is mentioned very early. At Rome it was not observed before the reign of Pope Sergius I. As Eve, our first mother, arose from the side of Adam, dazzling with life and innocence, so Mary came forth, bright and immaculate from the heart of the eternal Word Who by the ...More

Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you an 18-minute sermon given twelve years ago by Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI, Rector of St. Joseph Seminary at the City of Mary in Rathdrum, Idaho. Father speaks of the divine plan of the lineage of Mary and Joseph in begetting Jesus Christ through the miraculous impregnation of her divine Spouse the Holy Ghost. Father mentions four other women in the scriptures in the ancestry of the House of David and he then explains each of these and their failings for God created only one immaculately, free of original sin. With each woman the evangelist mentions those who had problems. Father explains this in that we should have no fear of the warts in the history of the Church for the Church has nothing to fear from the truth being known. None of those problems can ever effect the spotless Bride of Christ, for she is without sin. He points to the fact that the ancestors of Christ and His Mother would never taint the perfection of Christ. Nativity of Our Lady

When you think about it, the Nativity of the Son of God would not have been possible without a prior nativity. So many miss out on the significance of the birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary for she was conceived in her mother Saint Anne's womb as immaculate, without the stain of Original Sin. But then why wouldn't the Father prepare the most pure tabernacle for His only-begotten Son? Makes perfect sense that she would be the most perfect being possible. And if Christ honored His Mother with recognition of such respect and love, should any of God's children ever do less? We didn't think so. To put this in greater perspective we bring you a short essay composed a few years ago by the late Denise Michelle. In a tribute to this "Catholic Mom" and our Heavenly Mom we present The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary

In addition to the above prayer of None from St. Louis-Marie Grignon de Montfort, we have the magnificent inspiration he gave us in The Secret of the Rosary. In commemorating the 800th Anniversary of the holy Rosary this month and year, we continue to bring you installments to enhance your devotion in praying the Rosary for those blessed beads are indeed, the most powerful weapons we have available 24-7. We present today de Montfort's second part of the Pater Noster in which he goes through the meaning of each word in this scriptural prayer given to us by Our Lord. The holy saint offers a Thirteenth Rose continuing the Our Father

Known as Slave of the Blacks and the Slave of the Slaves, Saint Peter Claver was born after the Council of Trent in 1581 at Verdu, Catalonia. He was a farmer's son who studied at the University of Barcelona and became a Jesuit at the age of 20. Becoming a priest, he was greatly influenced by Saint Alphonsus Rodriguez to become a missionary in America. He ministered, physically and spiritually, to slaves when they arrived in Cartegena, Colombia, converting a reported 300,000, and working for humane treatment on the plantations for 40 years. St. Peter organized charitable societies among the Spanish in America similar to those organized in Europe by Saint Vincent de Paul. He died in ...More

Day Six

Day One of

We begin today the Seven Dolors of Our Sorrowful Mother leading to the feast which is the signature feast of this month's dedication. Each day we feature one of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary along with the Prayers for that Sorrow. We start with the First Dolor of Simeon's Prophecy. Mary took the infant Jesus to the temple, according to the law of Moses, presenting Him for the circumcision of all male Jews, as well as for her own purification according to the law, even though she was and remained always inviolate. While in the temple, Simeon approached the Holy Family. He beheld the infant and knew, through the Holy Ghost, that this was truly the fulfillment of God's covenant with His people. And he uttered the words of the Canticle of Simeon, which Holy Mother Church prays every night in Compline, "Now Thou dost dismiss Thy servant, O Lord, according to Thy word in peace; because my eyes have seen Thy salvation, " Then, after praising God for the Messiah, Simeon turns to Mary, so modest, so humble, and prophesies to her in these words, which must have started her deep contemplation. See The First Sorrow: the Prophesy of Simeon

In this installment St. Louis de Montfort completes his explanation of that most complete prayer - the Lord's Prayer - the Pater Noster - the Our Father said at the beginning of each of the fifteen decades of Mary's holy Psalter, as well as immediately following the Apostles Creed at the beginning of the holy Rosary. St. Louis de Montfort gave us several prayers and reflections including not only "The Secret of the Rosary", but the Little Office of the Immaculate Conception with one of the stanzas from the Hour of None above. Here St. Louis offers a Fourteenth Rose on the Our Father

Born at Sant' Angelo, near Fermo, in the March of Ancona, around the year 1246, Saint Nicholas Tolentino was devote to the devout life. He is often depicted in the black habit of the Hermits of St. Augustine --a star above him or on his breast, a lily, or a crucifix garlanded with lilies, in his hand. Sometimes, instead of the lily, he holds a vial filled with money or bread. His parents, said to have been called Compagnonus de Guarutti and Amata de Guidiani (these surnames may merely indicate their birth-places), were pious folk, perhaps gentle born, living content with a small substance. Nicholas was born in response to prayers, his mother a model of holiness. He excelled so much in his studies that even before they were over he was made a canon of St. Savior's church; but hearing a sermon by a hermit of St. Augustine upon the ...More

Day Two of

We continue today with the second of the Seven Dolors of Our Sorrowful Mother with terrifying Flight into Egypt. Think about it and how Joseph's trust is such an understatement here. Flee into a totally pagan country? To the very land out of which Almighty God had brought the nation of Israel after a long captivity? But Mary did not complain. She did not grump. She did not ask Joseph if he was sure it was an angel that had told him to flee. Mary trusted totally in God, and knew God worked in her husband in this manner. She respected the hierarchical structure of the family as God so deigned. Together they fled to Egypt confident God would protect them, not knowing how long they would be there in this foreign land which must have seemed endless months, until the angel once again came to Joseph and told him it was now safe to return to Nazareth, for Herod was dead. Second Sorrow: Flight into Egypt

To see an enlargement of Michelle R. Maher's rendition of the Archangel Gabriel delivering the Angelic salutation to Mary for her to make her fiat, click on the thumbnail image here. In this installment St. Louis de Montfort now begins an explanation of that very Angelic Salutation that today we simply call the Hail Mary. We can see how much St. Louis loves Our Lady in all his works, especially in The Secret of the Rosary and the Little Office of the Immaculate Conception with the above stanza in the Office of None. The Hail Mary represents a spiritual rose offered to Heaven in a bouquet of ten for each decade. He explains in offering Fifteenth Rose for the Angelic Salutation

Christ has snatched us from the death of sin as He once snatched the young man of Naim from natural death, and in this He responds to the compassion He feels for our mother the Church who laments over sinners, just as He was moved by the poor widow who lamented over her son. ...More

Day Three of

When Jesus was twelve, they journeyed to Jerusalem to have Jesus presented in the Temple again. But this was also another sorrow for our Blessed Mother. We cannot conceive of the most tender love, pure love, which Mary possessed in her heart for Jesus, the Son of God. Her pure heart sought only the Will of God, so Her consternation must have been great when she realized, with Joseph, that young Jesus was not in the caravan which was returning to Nazareth. With what haste must they have turned around, frantically returning to Jerusalem. It would be comparable for someone from a tiny rural town today to have their child lost in the midst of a city like Lost Angeles, Chicago, or New York, to name a few metropolises. Where do you look? To whom do you go? What do you say? They searched everywhere for Jesus, the Son of God, and couldn't find Him. Imagine what many of the people might have remarked. See Third Sorrow: Search for the Child Jesus

Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a nine-minute sermon given seven years ago by Bishop Daniel Dolan on today's saints the holy martyrs Sts. Protus and Hyacinth. He shares how their sacrifices strengthen us in our resolve to persevere in the faith. They were two brothers who were beheaded. Think of the countless Chaldeans this year who were beheaded because they would not give up their faith by accepting the infidel religion of Islam. The bishop tells of a discovery in the catacombs where the skulls and bones carried the odor of sanctity like a perfume. He discusses other martyrs as well who offered their lives for Our Lord rather than surrendering to the world, the flesh and the devil. We, like them, must ask God to keep us on the straight and narrow and ask for the grace of martyrdom rather than sin. The bishop explains in his sermon on Sts. Protus and Hyacinth

St. Louis de Montfort continues on the Hail Mary, in this chapter he describes the beauty of the Angelic Salutation for Mary was preserved pure from here conception on and remained pure and innocent as Michelle Maher so beautifully depicts Our Lady as a young Jewish lady who was so faithful, showing why she was chosen from all time by God to be the living tabernacle for the Father's only begotten-Son, but only by her cooperation in her fiat that "Thy will be done."

Day Four of

On this feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary, it was her divine Son Who must have uttered her name through blood drenched lips, gasping for air and water for the fourth Dolor also coincides with the Fourth Station of the Cross as we transfer from Our Lord's childhood to His adult years and those things she pondered in her heart had to come gushing forth as she wept when she heard her divine Son had been arrested and, through the Sanhedrin's kangaroo court, so quickly condemned through the political manipulation of Caiphas and the spineless Pontius Pilate. Rather than hiding as the Apostles did, she faced His Passion with strength and stood there on the Via Dolorosa waiting for Him as the entourage of Roman soldiers and frenzied Jews surrounding this tortured Man Who lugged the heavy wood that would be His execution tree. As He trundled into her view on the rugged pebbled way, she knew that to fulfill Her role as Mother of God, Mediatrix of all Graces and Co-Redemptrix of the world, Mary, with a pure and tender heart that loved as Her Son loved, bravely but sorrowfully met her Divine Son on His way to Calvary. See Fourth Sorrow: Mary meets her divine Son on the Via Crucis

This feast of the Immaculate Heart wasn't universally observed during St. Louis-Marie Grignon de Montfort's life, but his works and dedication to her Immaculate Heart no doubt encouraged devotion that has surpassed the test of time with his timeless work The Secret of the Rosary and his Little Office of the Immaculate Conception above. He continues with explaining the magnificence of the Hail Mary - the Angelic Salutation the comprises the bulk of Mary's holy Psalter - by producing for readers the fruits of this wonderful prayer. As we pray for Mary's Immaculate Heart to triumph as she promised at Fatima long after St. Louis de Montfort had passed, we ask this devoted slave of Our Lady to intercede for us and help us also to produce fruits from praying the holy Rosary as we see as he offers a Seventeenth Rose on the Fruits of the Aves

We urge you to click the Rosary banner above for the Twelfth Saturday in the Fifteen Saturdays Rosary Crusade organized by Bishop Robert McKenna, O.P. to do our part for the salvation of souls by bringing souls to the true Catholic Faith and Sacraments, for the welfare of our country, and for our own special intentions as we all strive for holiness in our role as members of the Church Militant. On this twelfth Saturday of the Fifteen Jesus has said His last words on earth and returns to be with His eternal Father, as we celebrate His Ascension into Heaven. As He promised, He is not leaving His Apostles and disciples alone for He will send His Spirit as we shall see next week with the Descent of the Holy Ghost. This week we focus on the Second Glorious Mystery for the Twelfth Saturday

To fortify why the CONciLIAR church is the false church, see key Papal Decrees that preceded it in pre-Vatican Two times by true Popes who solidly condemned the V2 false 'popes' who have spit in Heaven's Face. God will not be mocked. See for yourself what the infallible, perennial Magisterium of the Church has decreed:

  • Papal Coronation Oath Pope Agatho
  • Unam Sanctam Pope Boniface VIII
  • Cum Ex Apostolatus Officio Pope Paul IV
  • Quo Primum Pope St. Pius V
  • De Defectibus Pope St. Pius V

  • 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."

    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.
