        As we complete the month of April, we turn our attention to what this month is dedicated to - the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar. It is one of the most august of miracles that has long been denied by non-Catholic unbelievers, and, sad to say, by a vast majority of Novus Ordo 'Catholics' who, having been desensitized over the past 50 plus years, no longer believe that the priest can confect the bread and wine into the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ. Well, in a sense, they are right. Anyone 'ordained' in the new man-made rite instituted by Paul the Sick (aka Montini) after 1968 is merely a minister, not a consecrated priest. Therefore, he does not have the power to confect the sacrament any more than you or I could. That was the greatest tragedy of Vatican 2 and the devil's greatest triumph. By depriving millions of sanctifying grace, countless souls fell away and have perished or will perish in eternal perdition. There are still some who believe the Novus Ordo is valid and they receive the true Presence at holy communion. They will have to work that out with God at their own Particular Judgment since most in this day and age cannot claim ignorance. We, along with so many other traditional sites, who reject the heretical Second Vatican Council and all that followed in destroying the true Catholic Faith, have made it our mission to educate the faithful of where the only sure True Presence resides - in the Traditional Chapels with consecrated priests ordained in the pre-Vatican 2 divinely-inspired Rite of Holy Orders by true bishops who can trace their unbroken lineage back through valid episcopal predecessors. One of those true bishops is Bishop Mark Pivarunas, CMRI who provides the feature for the month with his piece first published in the April Adsum three years ago True Reverence for the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar

       We know the above also from the Gospel for the Fourth Sunday after Easter where Our Lord tells us of the Holy Ghost, Who "will teach you all truth.". We are reminded that the Sanctifier has been sent to protect the Church from error for she is the Spotless Bride of Christ. If you've been alive for the past 50 years, you know error is a common malady of the Modernist CONciLIAR church in Rome. How is that possible? Because the Advocate lifted His protection of the apparatchiks of Rome because of the inherent heresy spewed by man not chosen by His inspiration, but man's determination to forge their own rules. Each day we pray the Act of Faith whereby we profess at the end: "...We believe these and all the truths which the holy Catholic Church teaches because Thou hast revealed them, Who canst neither deceive nor be deceived." Therefore, if you have been deceived by the New Order church and its 'popes' - and you have! - then realize it is not from Jesus, but His adversary the devil who prowls about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Which side do you line up on? On Our Lord's right with the lambs who are faithful to all His Church has always taught, or on His left with the goats, destined for eternal damnation because they thought they had a better idea than God? Time is of the essence to search your soul for that answer.

        After several weeks of Feria Masses during this Paschaltide, we finally arrive at a week full of saints as you can see above. Not included, but observed in Traditional circles is the feast of Our Lady of Good Counsel on the feast of the holy martyred Pontiffs Popes St. Cletus and St. Marcellinus Thursday, the feast of St. Paul of the Cross, is also the traditional feast of St. Louis Marie Grignon de Montfort. His love for the Blessed Mother was beyond measure as we have seen in what he has passed down to us in devotion to Our Lady, specifically on the holy Rosary as well as his Way of Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary. We finish the month with the feast of St. Catherine of Siena, well known for keeping the popes on the straight and narrow. Unfortunately that is not possible today since the Vatican 2 'popes' - aka false popes or antipopes - have veered farther from the faith as the years have gone by. Presently, it looks more and more that only through divine intervention will the True Church emerge from the eclipse She has been shrouded in over the past several decades in satan's effort to destroy holy Mother Church, yet we know the demons will fail because Jesus has promised that the gates of hell will not prevail.

        We remind all that the Regina Coeli replaces the Angelus during Paschaltide.

   We're well past a week of the fallout from Mr. Jorge Bergoglio's disastrous, scandalous, and, yes, heretical Amoris laetitia. Knowing this Marxist's track record, should we be surprised? For all of this the best source for what is happening in separating the lambs on the right from the goats on the left is Novus Ordo Watch which provides links to several sources on reactions to "Joy of Love." The same site has also released a thorough audio on unFrancis' folly on TRADCAST In addition, we also confidently recommend trusted ports like Christorchaos.com for articles and links, as well as four blogs worth your while, Introibo Ad Altare Dei, Fr. Cekada's Quidlibet, Bishop Donald Sanborn's In Veritate, and the satirical, but on-point Call Me Jorge. They all weigh in on the consequences of the release of the dastardly document Amoris laetitia in which the so-called "Joy of love" can very well turn into Morte animarum - "Death of souls" because of the ambiguous time-bombs and blatant contradiction of Catholic truth so reminiscent of Vatican 2 documents. So stay tuned to our DailyCatholic Twitter Feed for the latest as well as the editor's SANCTUS facebook page

    How many lambs will be placed on the Lord's right? With the relaxation and total negligence of many Catholic disciplines today, that number might be smaller than you might think because the vast majority of the sheep are so lost because the so-called shepherds of the modern church, while masquerading as priests and prelates, are truly wolves who have ravaged souls for the past fifty years or so. Other than traditional priests and bishops ordained in the true Sacrament of Holy Orders, all those "ordained" or "consecrated" since 1968 with the man-made rite of Giovanni Montini have no more authority or power than a protestant minister, who, as Pope Leo XIII perfectly put it, "are completely null and utterly void." The fact is not since His Holiness Pope Pius XII have we had a true shepherd sitting in the Chair of Peter. That has greatly contributed to the chaos the world faces today because since the early part of the Conclave of 1958, when the Holy Ghost withdrew His protection because a false church was determined to eclipse the true Church. How long that will last is anybody's guess, but the more we see, the further away the counterfeit CONciLIAR church is out-protestanting the Protestants, and even the heathens! You see, through the Vatican 2 secular humanism man has replaced God!

    To offset this apostasy, we remind you of your opportunity to pray each evening with others by calling into moderator Tom Gillbrough for Rosary Conference Call at 10 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, 9 p.m. Central, 8 p.m. Mountain, and 7 p.m. in the Pacific Daylight time zone. You are encouraged to call in ten minutes before the hour so that the Rosary can start on time with no latecomers to upset the reverence and continuity of the Blessed Virgin Mary's holy Psalter. For those who want to stay on after the five decades, they may join in praying the other two sets of mysteries not covered for that day. Monday and Thursday are the Joyful mysteries, Tuesday and Friday are the Sorrowful mysteries, and Sunday, Wednesday, and Saturday are the Glorious mysteries. Traditional Catholics never acknowledge the heretical luminous mysteries. Why? Because Heaven bestowed the holy Rosary to St. Dominic to fight the heresy of Albigensianism in 1214. Mary stipulated that the three sets of mysteries made up Christ's life through her and they represented the 150 Psalms which, when divided by the Trinitarian number 3 equals 50 Aves. Victorious over the Albgensians, it remained the same with miraculous results for nearly 800 years until unsaint JP2 decided he'd add the Masonic luminous mysteries. With that unprecedented move in which man thought he knew better than God, the number jumped to four sets of mysteries equalling 200 Aves. To show how demonic this is, when you divide 200 by the Trinitarian number 3 you get 666! That should tell you all you need to know about Vatican 2 and it's false 'popes'.

   I know it's a shock to most to realize they're barking up the wrong tree, the one without the true barque of Peter. It was to us when we connected all the dots and finally came to the conclusion that the only syllogism possible to verify Christ's words was that the true Church remains in an interminable interregnum, chiefly because a heretic cannot be a pope, not to mention how those men occupying the Chair since the death of His Holiness of happy memory Pope Pius XII's death on October 9, 1958. The links we provide above to other ports verifies this fact.

   All we ask is that you pray for the grace to see the veracity of what is presented. It can be a tremendous task to leave the comfort zone of a religion that has relaxed so much, but isn't it worth it for your salvation? That was the decision we came to after realizing how much we were duped - yes, we're not alone - for as Jesus said in St. Matthew 24: 24-25: "insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect. Behold I have told it to you, beforehand." We've been warned, and yet so many refuse to connect the dots. It behooves you to do so and do so soon.

   We close out with the feast of St. Catherine of Siena. She definitely connected the dots to convince the Pope to return to Rome from Avignon. One would have to know the historical times, feuds and treachery of the Italian families and the politics of France and Rome, and the rest of Europe for that matter, to realize how difficult a task she was faced with, but instead of waiting for others she realized God had placed her in that time from all eternity to do His will and effect the return through her endeavors. So, too, today we are faced with a crisis far worse than what Catherine and her fellow faithful faced for we fight against the Great Apostasy. One of the greatest obstacles is convincing Catholics both CONciLIAR and neo or semi-trads that they need to connect the dots. The former go along with anything because, like the boiled frog syndrome, they have no clue they've been cooked; while the latter stubbornly cling to the possibility that Mr. Bergoglio the unFrancis could actually be legitimate when, in truth, he isn't Catholic at all, let alone a cleric, and definitely no Pope. To affirm this and assist you in this truth, we present a thorough talk by His Excellency Bishop Donald Sanborn, Rector of Most Holy Trinity Seminary, first published last week on Novus Ordo Watch. We encourage you to set aside an hour and a half to truly help your soul and clarify what is really happening by listening to his magnificent and eye-opening complete overview of the Great Apostasy in: The Novus Ordo Church, Vatican II, and Sedevacantism. It's a good idea to listen to the Questions and Answers after his talk that provides rock-solid reasons why Sedevacantists have been right all along and we pray more will receive the grace to see why and flee the Novus Ordo.

   Finally, it has to be said. As much as we hate to beg, we have no choice. We remind you of the advice of the holy Doctor of the Church Saint Augustine on almsgiving:
      "Generosity will save a person from Eternal Death, it will even blot out any sin.....because Almsgiving is prayer...it brings graces, it cleanses the soul from guilt and punishment.....What good is faith without works, if we desert our fellow man in his need.?"
If you have benefited in anyway from what we have published, we humbly ask your help to keep this publication on line. We know that so many of our readers are unable to assist at a true traditional Latin Mass because of where they live and use the daily liturgy we publish to gain the efficacious graces possible through their prayers at home. We remain the only publication in the world to provide such and are grateful to God that we can provide such nourishment for souls. We urgently ask if you can contribute anything in these tight times, we would be so appreciative for the coffers are truly bare. Think of all the untold millions being thrown into the election process this year.If you've contributed to a campaign, can't you spare a crumb for this apostolate to convert apostates? If you are still in the category of the lukewarm, then you will pass over this plea and move on to the next thing that tickles your fancy. But if you truly want to commit, we offer you the opportunity below to put that commitment into action for the good of saving souls. If you have not donated before, isn't it only right and proper to donate now? Whatever you can afford will be greatly appreciated. Just click the button below or send a check/money order to the address below. We are a bonafide non-profit 501c(3) religious association and all donations are tax-deductible. Whatever you would have contributed toward a bloated political campaigns or thrown away in the CONciLIAR collection plates that only goes to covering up the sins of its presbyters and false primates while destroying all semblence of Catholicism, why not earmark it for SANCTUS/DailyCatholic? After all, shouldn't we all take St. Paul's strong counsel in 2 Thessalonians 2: 14 to heart and "stand firm, and hold the traditions which you have learned"?

On this Fourth Sunday After Easter, the Church exalts the justice of God (Introit, Gospel), which is made manifest in the triumph of Christ and in that of His Mystical Bride - the Church. "The right hand of the Lord hath made manifest its power by mislng Christ from the dead" (Alleluia) and by taking Him up into Heaven on the day of His Ascension. It is expedient to ...More

This saint was one of many who God rose up during the "Century of Saints" to counter the Protestant Revolt of the 16th Century. Saint Fidelis was born in Sigmaringen, France in 1577 of noble parents. Ordained in 1612. Always devout to the sacraments, Fidelis became a Capuchin monk, embracing a life of austerity and prayer. The Congregation of Propaganda appointed him to go to Switzerland to save as many souls as possible from the growing heresy ...More

John Gregory provides the commentary for the Fourth Sunday after Easter from Father George Leo Haydock found in many Douay-Rheims version of the New Testament. How ironic when false prophets and antipopes are trying to justify the Jews in their sin, when Bishop Bernard Fellay ignores this after years of resisting in order to now compromise with the devil - that we have this wonderful Gospel of St. John the Evangelist on the truth. Our Lord foretold many times that the Jews would be a stubborn lot and indeed that has proven true for still today they brag about rejecting Him and expect faithful Catholics to tow their line rather than God's. More proof they answer to the prince of the world and not to the Son of God Who alone provides eternal happiness, re-emphasized so many times, especially in today's Gospel where Jesus promises He will always be with His children for He will not leave His apostles shorthanded. No, as promised, He will send His Spirit, the Holy Ghost which proves the Filioque of the Creed as we see in today's commentary for the Fourth Sunday after Easter in Promise of the Paraclete

Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI, Rector of St. Joseph's Minor Seminary in Rathdrum, Idaho at the City of Mary presents a thirteen-minute sermon recorded two years ago and made available through Traditional Catholic Sermons for the Fourth Sunday after Easter, also known as "Cantáte Sunday" after the Introit "Cantáte Domino", which means "Sing to the Lord" and which Father addresses how we are now preparing for the Advocate as Christ promises that through thick and thin, He will be with us always for He will send His Spirit. Father provides encouragement, especially to parents who often consider their greatest cross is their children who have strayed from the true Faith. He reminds them that God judges the effort, not the results and equates the courageous efforts of missionaries who strove to convert so many and never saw the fruits of their efforts, but that they gave it their all. He urges all to not give up hope and to realize, as Jesus affirms, that there will always be The Joys and Sufferings of Life.

The feast of St. Mark was not regularly inserted into the Roman Calendar until about the Twelfth Century. This is explained by the original association of the commemorations of the saints with their tombs. Although St. Mark was among the first who with St. Peter brought the Faith to Rome and at the request of the Romans themselves, wrote his Gospel, he did not die in the Holy City. St. Peter sent him to Alexandria in Egypt, and he was first bishop of that city. He governed his See for about twenty years and in the end was martyred, A.D. 70, by the heathen. His symbol is a lion, for his Gospel begins with the mission of John the Baptist in the desert and the voice of the lion resounds in desert places. Mark is said to have been the young man who, on the night that Jesus was made prisoner, left the sheet in which he was clothed, in the hands of the soldiers and fled ...More

Today on this feast of the holy Evangelist St. Mark we recite the Greater Litanies, namely the Litany of the Saints

April 25 is the feast of the holy Evangelist Saint Mark, represented by the Angelic Lion foreseen in the Old Testament by the Prophet Ezechiel when the latter received a glorious vision of the four Evangelists and their purpose which comprised the entire first chapter of the Prophesy of Ezechiel. These winged creatures, who many believe were angels in the prophet's vision, foresaw St. Matthew depicted as a human angel, St. Mark as the winged lion - or, in heraldic terms, a griffin, St. Luke as the winged ox, and St. John as the glorious eagle all with the purpose of spreading the news of the Messiah Who sat upon the throne of Heaven. It is said St. Mark received his moniker, if you will, from his description of St. John the Baptist of whom the evangelist begins his gospel in St. Mark 1: 2-3, "As it is written in Isaias the prophet: Behold I send my angel before thy face, who shall prepare the way before thee. A voice of one crying in the desert: Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight His paths." John Gregory completes the week by citing the Catholic Encyclopedia's claim that St. Mark wrote from St. Peter's point of view for he wrote what was preached by Simon-Peter, Petrus - the Rock upon which Christ established His only true Church on earth for all time as He promised and as was foretold in the Old Covenant. Holy Griffin of the Gospels

In Book Four, Chapter Thirty-Three of the Prophesies and Revelations of the holy mystic St. Bridget of Sweden we see the bride's letter written to a high anonymous cleric to whom she writes about the state of the Church in her time of how the Romans' earlier consolation, devotion, and good order among both clerics and lay people has deteriorated and so sadly been turned into desolation, disorder and abomination. It could very well have been written today except the popes of her time, for the most part, were true Successors of Peter, unlike these times when all she feared has tragically come to pass both materially and spiritually in this time of the Great Apostasy. The Rise and Fall of the Roman Catholic Church

These two Sovereign Pontiffs were martyred for the Faith 200 years apart in the early years of the Church. According to the testimony of St. Ireneus, the third successor was Pope Saint Cletus who should be identified with Anacletus, who governed the Church after Pope St. Linus, who was ...More

Today is also the Feast of Our Lady of Good Counsel. Records dating from the reign of Pope Paul II (1464-71) relate that the picture of Our Lady, at first called "La Madonna del Paradiso" and now better known as "Madonna del Buon Consiglio", appeared at Genazzano, a town about twenty-five miles southeast of Rome, on St. Mark's ...More

While the theological virtues focus on God, the moral virtues focus on man's role in God's plan. The foundation of this are the Four Cardinal Virtues on which are built the other moral virtues. Sadly, today those moral virtues are sorely lacking as society has unabashedly accepted immorality. Once satan infiltrated the Church and took down the safeguards, it was easy for the devil to manipulate man into accepting whatever agenda he wanted to foist down our soulful throats from planting a false church to ape the True Church to poisoning generations with "anything goes". That included every sin of the flesh possible, something Our Lady warned against at Fatima. Today immorality rules the roost for evil is considered politically correct and virtue is looked upon as intolerance. Hate speech is anything that would hinder one from sinning. Lost is the foundation for treating one another in the image and likeness of God. In order to conquer vice we must uphold the virtues for only the virtuous will possess the kingdom of God as we can see in step 12, The Cardinal Rule.

In Book Four, Chapter Thirty-Four of the Prophesies and Revelations of the holy mystic St. Bridget of Sweden she is given a vision about various punishments being prepared for a certain soul as yet alive in body, and how all these kinds of pending punishments, if his soul should be converted before death, could and would be converted into the greatest honor and glory. As St. Peter writes in Sacred Scripture that "the devil goeth about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour" and here we see how good works and faith can rescue one from the teeth of the lethal beast into the loving arms of God as we see in Out of the mouth of the beast

St. Peter Canisius, called "The Second Apostle of Germany," as St. Boniface was the first, was the first German Jesuit. He was born at Nymwegen, May 8, 1521, and was received into the Society of Jesus by Blessed Peter Faber, at Mayence, May 8, 1543. After an extraordinarily apostolic life as teacher, orator, writer, adviser, he died a holy death on December 21, 1597, at Freiburg, Switzerland. He was beatified November 20, 1868, and canonized May 21, 1925. He had a great love for children; to him we owe the first catechism of Christian Doctrine; he is often pictured as surrounded by a group of devout children, teaching them the catechism. The greatest stress he placed upon the education of priests. "To train good priests," he said, "is the ...More

Bishop Daniel Dolan presents a 14-minute audio sermon, courtesy of Traditional Catholic Sermons, on Sts. Peter Canisius and Zita

The Dutch-born Jesuit priest St. Peter Canisius played a key role in the landmark dogmatic and canonical Council of Trent and in debating the Protestant heresies while whirling through his native Netherlands and Germany, Austria, Bohemia and Poland. He was a great eloquent preacher sought by prince and pauper alike. He served as mediator between Holy Roman Emperors and Popes. He also founded the University of Fribourg in 1580. One of his most famous works was "Manual of Catholics" and he is referred to as the "Second Apostle of Germany," giving way only to the great Saint Boniface as the "First Apostle of Germany." Because of his efforts, the counter-reformation was a resounding success in Bavaria. He was truly the Windmill of Wisdom.

His Excellency Bishop Mark Pivarunas, CMRI focuses on the mystery of the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar and the stark contrast of the awe and reverence afforded the True Presence of Our Lord and Savior compared with the travesty of the Novus Ordo with atrocities galore that not only scandalize but veer greatly from what was set in stone at the dogmatic Council of Trent. His Excellency details the reason why true priests take such caution and reverence for the Blessed Sacrament, something so sorely missing today in the Novus Ordo lodges, which only reinforce the Traditional Catholic stance that what the Conciliar church offers is invalid and totally null and void as is obvious in. True Reverence for the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar

In Book Four, we have combined Chapters Thirty-Five, Thirty-Six, and Thirty-Seven because of the continuation of God speaking to the holy mystic St. Bridget of Sweden and recorded in her Prophesies and Revelations that the Holy Trinity visits her after she expresses her desire for the salvation of souls, and we hear the answer given her through both the Holy Ghost and Our Lord Himself, namely that people's excesses and superfluity in food and drink are an obstacle to the visitations of the Sanctifier given to them; also how the religious used to enter monasteries out of holy fear and divine charity, but now God's enemies, that is, false religious, go off into the world out of wicked pride and cupidity; similarly, Jesus speaks about knights and their knightly service. Then Christ asks the bride how it stands with the world, and she answers that it is like an open sack to which everyone senselessly runs, and then hears Christ's severe and just condemnation of such people. Man blocks the graces God wants to give

St. Paul of the Cross, born at Ovada, founded the Congregation of the Passionists, amid the solitary rocks of Monte Argentaro. He felt that in order to form apostles and missionaries it is necessary to have retirement from the world, seclusion, spiritual recollection, strict poverty, and austere penance. He preached everywhere the mystery of the Cross... There is also a commemoration of St. Vitalis a martyr of Ravenna. The Emperor Justinian erected a splendid basilica in his honor. He was the husband of Saint Valeria of Milan and father of Saint Gervase and Saint Protase... Today is also the Feast of the holy confessor Saint Louis Marie Grignon de Montfort whom Pope Pius XII canonized in 1947. St. Louis was a great devotee of Our Lady whom he loved so tenderly and devoted so much ...More

Even though this is the transferred feast of St. Mark, His Excellency Bishop Daniel Dolan offers a potpourri of saints for this day in relating the lives and virtues of four saints, beginning with St. Paul of the Cross, the persevering servant of the Lord who bore his sufferings with great joy and was rewarded as was the holy martyr St. Vitalis who has a commemoration this day as well as remembering St. Peter Chanel, and of course the holy slave of the Blessed Virgin Mary, St. Louis Marie de Montfort who fought Jansenism and founded the Company of Mary as well as the Sisters of Wisdom in spreading the holy Faith and providing a foundation for future generations of faithful Catholics. His Excellency provides this tableau of holy men whom we celebrate for Saints honored on April 28

In Book Four, Chapter Thirty-Eight of the Prophesies and Revelations of the holy mystic St. Bridget of Sweden, the Virgin Mary offers a complaint to the daughter about a man of counterfeit devotion, comparing him to a poorly armed squire in a physical battle, and how sincerity transfers to simpering and striving to put on a show when it is so obvious the man's intentions are of a coward just by the way be transports himself as a clueless mercenary. Be the Devil's Nightmare and Resist

St. Peter of Verona was a Dominican priest of unspotted life, who labored earnestly for the conversion of heretics. In the end he was cruelly killed near Como, in Italy, April 6, 1252. He was the object of wide-spread veneration in Italy during the Fifteenth Century. In his day heresy was a crime against the state and punished by civil authority. St. Peter, as inquisitor, was thus able to protect the Faith and to save the state from revolution. See the Mass Protexisti

    It does no good to blame Adam and Eve because that's past history and the one we can really thank is the Second Adam - Jesus Christ for it is through His merits by His death and resurrection that we gain the opportunity for everlasting life as the Catechism has always taught n why we strive to stay in the state of grace received first at baptism to rid our souls of Original Sin. However, contrary to Protestant thinking, everything we do following baptism we are responsible for and must answer to God for, due to man's penchant for bad, we are not perfect and must work hard to avoid actual and venial sins and be sure we never commit a mortal sin. The latter will be covered next week, but for this week we focus on Original and Actual sins for, by God's design of free will we are grist for the world, the flesh and the devil unless we remember why we were baptized and obey God in all things great and small, because the small sins, though venial, still greatly offend the One Who gave us life. In step thirteen of this series we deal with the why of Man's Fallen Human Nature

In Book Four of Chapter Thirty-Nine of the Prophesies and Revelations of the holy mystic St. Bridget of Sweden, the Blessed Virgin Mother speaks with her divine Son how much the bride - St. Bridget - is like a lamb that places so much trust in the lion (Christ) that she is willing to put her head in His mouth. St. Bridget hears Christ's answer and His request to His Mother to explain further of the reasons why this is good as Our Lady illustrates the meaning to the bride of how the lion and the lamb tie is so perfectly, and how God permits some things to happen because of human ingratitude and impatience that otherwise would not happen to them. This Lion ain't lyin'!

St. Catherine of Siena was the twenty-third in a family of twenty-four children. She is best known for the work she did in persuading Pope Gregory XI in bringing the Papacy from Avignon back to Rome. She worked miracles for the sake of the poor and the afflicted. At the age of eighteen she received the habit of the Third Order of St. Dominic. For three years she never spoke to any one but God and her confessor. During her prolonged fast her only food was her only food was Holy Communion. Our Savior appearing to her on one occasion offered her a crown of ...More

On April Fools' Day back in 2006, editor Michael Cain weighed in on how the faithful have been so hoodwinked by the CONciLIAR con-artists and will continue to be bamboozled until they learn their Faith. Despite the spin put on John Paul II's death in 2005 by the Vaticanista modernists, many believe April 1st was the anniversary of his passing. Ironically it is so appropriate considering what a fool he made of himself and the Faith during his tenure. But the modernists have a long history of deceiving and spinning, of shystering and scamming. It is appropriate that we bring this to you on the feast of St. Catherine of Siena. If you know your Faith you won't be fooled by the con-artists and flim-flam men posing as prelates of the conciliar church, trying to sell tolerance of sodomy and universal salvation for the sake of man. If you know your Faith, you're not going to get stuck with worthless swampland where the serpent is so at home slithering about from diocese to diocese, from chancery to curia, from cartel to casbah, all to cash in his marks. If there is anything to remember as we close out the month of April that began on April Fools' Day it is the foolishness of believing the conciliarists. To do so is pure folly! That is the gist of The Great Hoax Still Continues

In Book Four of Chapter Forty of the Prophesies and Revelations of the holy mystic St. Bridget of Sweden, Christ assures the bride that a woman who was very sick would not die. When she did, Bridget was confused but Our Lord assured her that those who die in the temporal sense do not die in the eternal sense for one's death can indeed save one from a fate worse than death, which would be eternal damnation. It gives us pause to contemplate on this in the aftermath of the terrible devastation in Oklahoma and, considering the total annihilation of a community, only 24 died. That is indeed providential and why suffering is part and parcel in our journey toward Heaven for Jesus tells Bridget why He makes it difficult because there is merit in a Christian death and in what way a person dies well or badly does not always indicate how one lived for the true friends of God should not be troubled if they see God's servants dying a harsh bodily death. Pray for the repose of their soul at all times for we should not assume one went straight to Heaven since Heading to Heaven is Hard

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

  • Papal Coronation Oath Pope Agatho
  • Unam Sanctam Pope Boniface VIII
  • Cum Ex Apostolatus Officio Pope Paul IV
  • Quo Primum Pope St. Pius V
  • De Defectibus Pope St. Pius V
  • Satis Cognitum Pope Leo XIII
  • Apostolicae Curae Pope Leo XIII
  • Lamentabili Sane Pope St. Pius X
  • Pascendi Dominici Gregis Pope St. Pius X
  • Oath Against Modernism Pope St. Pius X
  • Mortalium Animos Pope Pius XI
  • Humani Generis Pope Pius XII
  • Sacramentum Ordinis Pope Pius XII

    If the above Papal Decrees have not convinced you, then for more evidence that the Chair is VACANT and that Vatican Two and all that has followed is Anathema sit as St. Paul asserts in Galatians 1: 8-9, see these on-line books and sources:

      We encourage you to learn more about the Traditional Latin Mass - the true Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in these videos at this link because each time you worthily assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in person, you gain graces that are placed in a "golden chalice", so to speak, and is offered to God to be weighed in substance when you stand before Him at your Particular Judgment. The more you have filled this chalice, the better will it go for your spiritual welfare in eternity, enhanced by your cooperation with grace. Know the Mass

    To assist all in striving toward holiness, click on the Confessional to your right to review your transgressions through a thorough Examination of Conscience

    When One Cannot physically assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass we provide additional prayers that can be supplemented with the ORDINARY OF THE HOLY MASS and the PROPER OF THE DAY to enable you to better prepare yourself at home. Of course, this never replaces actually being there, but it is much better than attending the Novus Ordo services. Therefore we have gleaned from The Key of Heaven prayers to say at home. It is very comforting to know that the Holy Mass is offered for us even when we are not actually present. But to enjoy the benefits which it procures, we must by a SPIRITUAL COMMUNION become partakers of the altar from which we are temporarily banished. Here we provide prayers in preparation for fulfilling assistance in absentia in addition to the ORDINARY OF THE HOLY MASS and PROPER OF THE DAY. PRAYERS IN ABSENTIA

    Prayer Before the Crucifix

    Behold, O kind and most sweet Jesus, I cast myself upon my knees in Thy sight, and with the most fervent desire of my soul I pray and beseech Thee that Thou wouldst fix deep within my heart lively sentiments of Faith, Hope and Charity, with true repentance for my sins, and a firm purpose of amendment, whilst with deep affection and grief of soul I ponder within myself and mentally contemplate Thy five most precious Wounds; having before my eyes the words which David in prophesy spoke concerning Thee, O Good Jesus: "They have pierced My hands and My feet; they have numbered all My bones."

    Plenary Indulgence, Condition:
    • Confession
    • Communion
    • One Our Father
    • One Hail Mary
    • One Glory be...
    Pope Pius IX, July 31, 1858

  • The Fatima Prayers

    My God, I believe, I adore, I trust and I love Thee; and I beg pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not trust, and do not love Thee.
    (repeat the above 3 times then bow your head in reciting the following:)

        O Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in tabernacles throughout the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in unison with the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners.

        O Most Holy Trinity, I adore Thee! My God, my God, I love Thee in the Most Blessed Sacrament!

        O my Jesus, it is for love of Thee, in reparation for the offenses committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary and for the conversion of poor sinners.
