   This special Christmastide edition runs the gamut of the season up to the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary on February 2 and through to the following Saturday to end the sixth week. As we fuel up for 2017 and hopefully beyond, we pray more will gain strength from the unchangeable, perfect prayer offered daily on traditional Catholic altars - what the late great Fr. Frederick Faber called "the most beautiful thing this side of Heaven" - the Apostolic and Canonical Propitiatory Sacrifice of the Traditional Latin Mass, where you can follow the Ordinary of the Mass and follow the liturgy with each Daily Proper in Latin and English, as well as learn more about the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in various videos on the Meaning of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    To one and all, a Mary Christ's Mass for that is the etimology of the word, derived from the Olde English Cristes Maesse, which means the "Mass of Christ." The feast itself, though established as December 25 in the very First Century, was not made official for the universal Church until proclaimed by Pope St. Damasus I late in the Fifth Century. His decree was a definitive statement against the Arian Heresy, which denied Christ's divinity. It was also proclaimed in order to offset the influence of the Greeks who celebrated the Epiphany as Christmas. It is from December 25 on that we truly celebrate the Nativity of the Son of God up to the Epiphany as the "Twelve Days of Christmas" established by the Council of Tours in 567. Thus for nearly a millennium and a half this most solemn Catholic feast is a celebration observed by the world, for the world, and throughout the world.

    No wonder satan's agents are so intent to wipe out the symbols of the Birth of the Messias. The standard symbols are Catholic in origin from the Christmas Crib to the Christmas Tree and St. Nick (St. Nicholas) himself, who today is called Santa Claus for secular purposes from the Dutch term for the former Sinterklaas. The Christmas Creche is a tradition originating with Saint Francis of Assisi, and the Christmas tree, an evergreen to symbolize Christ's ever presence, dates from the middle ages. So also the candy cane which represents the shepherds' staff; the white for the purity of Christ and the red for the blood He shed for us.

    During this Christmastide we are pleased to present some beautiful Christmas Carols to listen to from an excellent devotional Traditional Catholic site from which we have taken the Adeste Fidelis for this page. We heartily recommend this site for all during the Twelve Days for while the secular world tears down Christmas decorations the day after, Traditional Catholics have a tendency not to put up their complete decorations until Christmas Eve and leave them up throughout Christmastide. But the greatest decoration we can display is a soul full of sanctifying grace. This is accomplished only through the divinely-ordained sacraments Christ established once and for all for many - pro multis. True Peace on earth can only be attained when the world realizes the significance and meaning of the Birth of Christ our Lord, our Sovereign King and submits to Him freely as Ruler of all in body, mind and soul.

   I want to thank our loyal benefactors who have been, literally, the life line of the DailyCatholic. Unfortunately this traditional apostolate is far, far short of the goal hoped and prayed for, but we leave it all in God's hands for we fully accept His holy Will in whatever that may be. Only He knows and we're content with that. All we know is that how frequently we publish in 2017 will be directly contingent on your generosity in helping us reach more souls more often. That is why we implore you to contribute what you can below. May you have a blessed and grace-filled Christmastide. Lux fulgébit hodie super nos; quia natus est nobis Dóminus.

       There are Three Masses on Christmas. This is one time true priests are permitted to say three Masses beginning with the first Mass at Midnight "Dominus dixit" for the Solemnity of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Redeemer of mankind, has always been held at the Station of St. Mary Major where the relics of the Bethlehem crib are kept. The second Mass "Lux fulgebit" at Dawn used for its station the very ancient church of St. Anastasia whose name appears in the Canon of the Mass. Finally, the third Christmas Mass is held during Christmas Day with the Introit "Puer natus est" and, before the Great Apostasy, always returned to the major Station at St. Mary Major where we heard in the Epistle from St. Paul that it was by the Word that God made the world. Let the nations and kings come and adore Him. If the Angels fall down and worship Him, can we do any less? John Gregory has provided the Haydock Commentary for every Sunday Epistle and Gospel as well as Holy Days of Obligation as he does for the three Christmas Masses here John also provides Reflections on the Nativity. We also alert you to inspiration from Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey with three pieces for each Mass of Christmas, Born to Give Birth to Us All,The Christ and His Mass, and Venite Adoremus.

       We also provide for each day up to Epiphany, the true meaning of the song ♬ "The Twelve Days of Christmas" ♬, so popular today in secular circles during this time of year. In truth it was actually a secret catechism based on the Truths of the Roman Catechism of Trent. Keeping with popular Christmas prose, we present an update of 'Twas the Night of the Clutter which tells in 33 stanzas the story of the counterfeit church of conciliarism as we beg deference of Clement Moore's original 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. But as bad as it is we provide hope through the Reflections on Christmas with "The Story of Christmas" by Abbe Dom Prosper Gueranger, and "The Liturgy of Christmas" by Bishop Mark A. Pivarunas, CMRI as well as His Excellency's sermon on The Nativity.

        What a way to open the centenary year of the Fatima Apparitions with three feasts that intricately involve the Blessed Virgin Mary beginning with the Circumcision of her divine Son Jesus Christ Whose Solemnity is celebrated on the first day of the year (a holy day of obligation). John Gregory provides the Haydock Commentary for all three feasts this week, beginning with the Circumcision "Complying with the Law", then the next day with No other Name, and on January 6, Gifts of Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh. In the same manner Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI provides sermons for the same three feasts with Circumcision and the day after the Solemnity of the Circumcision a sermon on The Holy Name of Jesus where every knee will bow, and finally, bookended on Friday for the First Class Solemnity of the Epiphany, a holy day in many countries such as Canada, but not in the U.S., with his sermon on The Magi. It is the custom to take blessed chalk and write above the doorway of your home annually the following. This year it is the Roman numerals MMXVII and below that C for Caspar + 20 for the century + M for Melchior + 17 for the year + B for Balthazar. The Solemnity of the Epiphany is also the First Friday of 2017, and for those who have not made their nine consecutive First Fridays, what a wonderful day to begin. This is followed by the First Saturday of January which evolved from Our Lady's apparitions and messages of Fatima.

             This is the Blessed Mother's year with the 100-year anniversary of Fatima, and to acknowledge this last universally Church-approved apparition that carries so much weight and urgency from her plea to pray the holy Rosary daily to how many souls go to hell for the sins of the flesh, and, of course the mysterious Third Secret that has yet to be revealed despite the bogus one in 2000, we will honor her each and every day with something not bogus: We honor her with one of her titles over the centuries from countries all around the world. We provide the link to more on her title and about each particular apparition each day via the links provided beneath each day's Holy Sacrifice of the Mass Proper graphic on these pages.

    This week we begin with the Double Major Feast of Holy Family Sunday for Jesus, Mary, and Joseph are the ideal to imitate in all virtues and daily behavior in putting things in perspective where Heaven is the most important goal in our life in the way we treat our neighbor, wanting our neighbor - whether friend or foe - before the Beatific Vision with us. Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI provides inspiration for Holy Family Sunday with his fifteen minute sermon Let Our Families Be Like The Holy Family From Monday through Thursday the Octave Days of the Solemnity of the Epiphany are observed, the Octave Day being Friday the feast of the Baptism of the Lord by St. John the Baptist. Saturday we observe the first Doctor of the Church in the new year by celebrating the feast of St. Hilary of Poitiers who was a tireless "Laborer for God". He could be the poster saint for Traditional Catholics today.

    We begin in earnest the Time after Epiphany with the Second Sunday where John Gregory provides the Haydock Commentary for the Epistle and Gospel on the Wedding Feast at Cana - The First Miracle, and Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI provides inspiring insight with his 20-minute sermon on Our Lady's Intercession and Marriage Wednesday is the feast of St. Peter's Chair at Rome as we begin the week of the Chair of Church Unity Octave Week in which we pray each day that all may be one, but not in the ecumaniacal way of Vatican II where the True Church of Christ merely "subsists in" the Church with other churches on a live and let live level, but in praying and wanting all to realize the errors of their way and convert to the True Faith practiced from Peter through Pius XII. Pray for the collapse of the CONciLIAR church and the restoration of the true Roman Catholic Church. Remember Our Lady's words at Fatima, "In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph." I guarantee you it will not be through the current occupants of Rome for apostate Mr. Jorge Bergoglio is doing all he can to destroy true Catholicism, trying to knock out "rigid" Traditional Catholics who believe in absolutes and the infrangible true Faith. Since Vatican 2 is a bad fruit it will collapse, destined for the eternal fire as Jesus affirms in Matthew 7: 15-20. No, the triumph will come through faithfulness to her divine Son's remnant Church now relegated to the catacombs as we pray for divine intervention. Know the Faith in order to Keep the Faith! The most revered Abbe Dom Prosper Gueranger provides insight into the reason for Church Unity Octave with his Reflections. Below is the daily prayer during this week for true unity.

    (Official Octave Prayer)

    ANTIPHON (from St. John 17: 21)

    "That they all may be one, as Thou, Father, in Me and I in Thee; that they also may be one in Us; that the world may believe that Thou has sent Me."

      V. I say unto thee that thou art Peter
      R. And upon this Rock I will build My Church.

    Let us pray. O Lord Jesus Christ, Who saidst unto Thine Apostles: Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you; regard not our sins, but the faith of Thy Church, and vouchsafe to grant unto Her that peace and unity which are agreeable to Thy Will. Who livest and reignest God forever and ever. Amen.

      An indulgence of 300 days during the octave of prayers for the unity of the Church, from the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter in Rome to the feast of the Conversion of St. Paul. A Plenary Indulgence on the usual conditions at the end of the devout exercise.

OL of Good Succor

   This week for the first time in years, there is hope that commiserating the abominable Roe vs. Wade decision in 1973 that has claimed countless millions in the womb over the past 44 years, can be be numbered with the election of Donald John Trump who has promised to appoint pro-life judges where this dastardly decision can be overturned and January 22 will become a part of ancient history. We can only pray that this will happen as we pray for the souls of the unborn who are trapped in Limbo, left to the mercy of Almighty God at the Final Judgment since they were not baptized, but still are guiltless. Pray President Trump will be touched by the Savior of the world Jesus Christ to right the terrible wrong that the Blessed Virgin Mary had warned of at Fatima that Russia's errors would spread if we did not heed her plea. Well, folks, it happened because we did not heed her plea and communism not only infiltrated all branches of governments, but also the Church Herself early in the twentieth century that resulted in the heretical Vatican 2 and the inevitable Road to Perdition for so many souls who were blinded just as foretold in 2 Thessalonians 2: 3-11 and 2 Timothy 4: 3-4. For articles on this from two years ago, we refer you to 43 Years of "Legal" Outright Murder and Genocide (even though it's 41 back in 2014). By the way wouldn't it be great if President 45 could end Roe vs. Wade by next year at 45 years?!!

    This week we complete the Week of Church Unity Octave with the Greater Double Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul. The renowned Benedictine Abbot Abbe Dom Prosper Gueranger bookends the week with a special Reflection on Christ's call to Conversion. Yes, Mr. Bergoglio, it is about conversions just as Jesus mandated in Matthew 28: 19-20, Mark 16: 15-16, and John 21: 15-17. But then again, Chaos Frank has contradicted so many things in the inerrant gospels, that it is amazing how many still consider him a pope. Can you say "Apostate"? That is what he is and what he is doing is trying to destroy all vestiges of Catholic tradition with his Marxist Liberation Theology using Vatican 2 as his template for the New One World Religion. Begone, satan! Father Benedict Hughes,CMRI provides common sense and sensus Catholicus, which you won't find in Bergoglio's church, with a powerful eleven and a half minute sermon entitled The One True Church.

   We begin the week with the Gospel of the centurion who said "Lord, I am not worthy" - the solemn words announcing the Communion at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass Domine, non sum dignus. John Gregory provides the Haydock Commentary for the Third Sunday after Epiphany with So Great a Faith. This is also a week of saints as you can see the line up of holy men above beginning with St. Raymond of Peñafort on Monday, the holy Bishops and Martyrs St. Timothy and St. Polycarp on Tuesday and Thursday respectively, and on Friday we honor the golden voice St. John Chrysostom, holy Bishop and Doctor of the Church who was The Golden Mouth of Truth. We end the week honoring St. Peter Nolasco.

Our Lady of Fire

        With the observance of Candlemas on the Double of the Second Class Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Christmastide Season officially comes to an end after 40 days when Our Lady and St. Joseph presented the Child Jesus to Simeon and Anna in the Jewish Temple as it was the occasion of new mothers to be purified with the gift of two white turtle doves, of which Mary was totally obedient to the customs and law. Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI presents a 14-minute sermon on The Purification. So also to this day throughout the centuries the Blessed Mother has urged her children to be obedient to her divine Son's true Church for He cannot deceive nor be deceived. The very fact we have been deceived since the election of Angelo Roncalli, who was a Sillonist heretic and possible Mason before his elevation, and it's gone down hill ever since with each invalid successor to where what is taught today is no longer recognizable to what the Church taught before the disastrous Vatican 2 Council. We know the only way to preserve the true Faith is to resist all that has come down since 1958 and to cling to the truths and traditions of holy Mother Church as taught from St. Peter through Pope Pius XII, the last true Sovereign Pontiff of happy memory. The only way to perpetuate this is to observe all the truths and to expose the charlatans as St. Francis de Sales and Pope St. Pius X have emphasized.

        We start this final week of Christmastide with the feast of the holy Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales, who is the Patron Saint of the Catholic Press. This year it is merely commemorated because of the Fourth Sunday after Pentecost where John Gregory provides the Haydock Commentary Only Christ can calm the storms. After the feast of the holy Virgin and Martyr St. Martina on Monday, we end January with the feast of St. John Bosco who saved so many young men by warning them of hell as Fr. Eugene Brown testifies to in St. John Bosco's Journey into Hell. We begin February with the feast of the holy Bishop and Martyr St. Ignatius of Antioch, followed by the Purification and then the feast of the holy Bishop and Martyr St. Blaise and the Blessing of the Throats where the priest crosses two blessed beeswax candles holding them below each recipient's chin and pronouncing special prayers. It is also First Friday of February with special First Friday Devotions and First Saturday Devotions.

  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 to St. Michael the Archangel

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do thou, O prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

Sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in proelio, contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium. Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur: tuque, Princeps militiae caelestis, Satanam aliosque spiritus malignos, qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo, divina virtute, in infernum detrude. Amen.

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, inebriate me.
Water from the side of Christ, wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O good Jesus, hear me.
Within Thy wounds, hide me.
Permit me to never be separated from Thee.
From the malicious enemy, defend me.
At the hour of my death, call me
And bid me to come to unto Thee
That with Thy Saints I may praise Thee
Forever and ever. Amen.

Anima Christi, sanctifica me.
Corpus Christi, salva me.
Sanguis Christi, inebria me.
Aqua lateris Christi, lava me.
Passio Christi, conforta me.
O bone Iesu, exaudi me.
Intra Tua vulnera absconde me.
Ne permittas me separari a Te.
Ab hoste maligno defende me.
In hora mortis meae voca me.
Et iube me venire ad Te,
Ut cum Sanctis tuis laudem te
in saecula saeculorum. Amen.

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.

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

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

Memorare, O piissima Virgo Maria, non esse auditum a saeculo, quemquam ad tua currentem praesidia, tua implorantem auxilia, tua petentem suffragia, esse derelictum. Ego tali animatus confidentia, ad te, Virgo Virginum, Mater, curro, ad te venio, coram te gemens peccator assisto. Noli, Mater Verbi, verba mea despicere; sed audi propitia et exaudi. Amen.

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.

Keep up to date by following us on twitter or just read our twitter feed below for the latest buzz daily from a truly Catholic viewpoint as all have come to expect from the DailyCatholic.

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:
