    This is the month dedicated to the Most Precious Blood of Jesus and this week we honor several martyrs, five of the first seven days this week. We begin on the Fifth Sunday after Pentecost with a commemoration to one of the youngest and most recent martyrs St. Maria Goretti, then Monday the feast of the Seven Holy Brothers and their mother St. Felicitas, followed by Pope St. Pius I on Tuesday. On Wednesday, the feast of the holy abbot St. John Gualbert we commemorate also the holy martyrs Sts. Nabor and Felix and on Thursday another martyred Sovereign Pontiff Pope St. Anacletus. They all, inebriated by the Most Precious Blood for strength, gave of their own blood in dying for Christ and the true Faith without compromising with pagans or those influenced by satan. On Friday we honor the holy Franciscan Bishop and Doctor of the Church St. Bonaventure who was "The Seraphic Doctor" followed by the feast of the holy Emperor of the Roman Empire out of Germany St. Henry. Both the latter saints, though not martyrs, would have been more than willing to shed their blood for their Lord and Savior and the holy Faith.

    Throughout this week we continue the Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel and feature a Sunday sermons this week by Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI and three throughout the week by Bishop Daniel Dolan. In addition, we continue with gems from John Gregory in his Faithful to Tradition series where he shares this week his own journey to tradition, as well as the Father Courtney Krier's series An Argument For Sedevacantism where this week he examines the Church as One. Besides resurrecting the inspiring Church-approved messages to St. Bridget of Sweden with the second chapter of Book One where Our Lord continues His words to his bride Bridget, we also introduce a new series of excellent articles from a few years ago posted on the blog Introibo ad Altare Dei that are just as pertinent today. Finally we observe the Third Saturday of the Fifteen Saturdays Rosary Crusade started by the late Bishop Robert McKenna, O.P. several years ago which we encourage all to participate in as we urge you to...

    No matter the month, that Heart and Blood took life within the living tabernacle that is God's chosen vessel the Blessed Virgin Mary who as Co-Redemptrix, has promised at Fatima in fulfillment of Sacred Scripture that her Immaculate Heart would triumph. That could be God's way of inserting divine intervention to offset this Great Apostasy we remain in. Her holy Rosary is the link of hope between Traditional Catholics and CONciLIAR Catholics, and 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.

On Saturday mornings you are invited to call 319-527-2928 and join Dave Fuire and often times a priest in praying the five Glorious Mysteries at 1 p.m. EDT, noon CDT, 11 a.m. MDT, and 10 a.m. PDT in reparation for the offenses against the Immaculate Heart of Mary. It is what Our Lady asked for at Fatima.

You'll note that 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'. That is why it is paramount to the welfare of your eternal soul to...

    A lot has been said about the heretical 'Apostolic' declaration Amoris Laetitia that has spurred so much controversy, but there are so many other heresies spewed from Mr. Bergoglio's mouth. We urge you to check out the latest at NovusOrdoWatch.org. We strongly recommend you devote some time to listen to the monthly TRADCASTS and frequent TradCAST Express, all available at the same site. Hearing this and knowing Marxist Mr. Jorge Bergoglio's track record we shouldn't be surprised that the world is thrilled, while many Catholics are shocked, especially with his latest push to recognize all religions as equal: Pantheism and Syncretism at its apex toward a one world religion under Satan. Traditional Catholics are not shocked because we saw it coming. 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 NovusOrdoWatch latest news wire which provides links to so many sources that it has become the DRUDGE Report for Traditional Catholics. In addition, we also confidently recommend trusted ports like Christorchaos.com for articles and links, as well as four blogs worth your while, the excellent traditional weekly blogIntroibo 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 dastardly deeds by those in Modernist Rome and their cronies around the world who blatantly contradict Catholic truth, which of course is 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!

   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. 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. 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.

   The words above are the wise counsel of St. Paul in 2 Thessalonians 2: 14 and just the fact that you have arrived on this site is a blessing and we hope you pray for the grace to truly see that all we publish here is the unadulterated Catholic truth. As we have said so many times, don't take our word for it, see what holy Mother Church has always taught as infrangible truth for Our Lord cannot deceive nor be deceived. We pray you can see that if you have been deceived in any way by what has been taught by the Vatican 2 church, then something must be wrong and you will know it does not come from God, but rather His adversary the devil.

   That is why we have endeavored for 21 years online to bring you the infrangible truths and traditions of the Church instituted by Christ. We can humbly say we have never had to print a retraction of anything published on these pages. Of course with all that we have here and in archives it takes money to continue. 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 from the approved St. Andrew Missal 1945 and in so doing can 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. So if you have benefited in any way, we'd be so grateful for a tax-deductible donation of whatever you deem it is worth. 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?"

    Whatever you can afford will be greatly appreciated and you will be added to our daily prayer list personally by name and your intentions. Just click the button below or you may 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. Thank you in advance for your caring and sharing. It all comes down to St. Paul's strong counsel in 2 Thessalonians 2: 14 above. That is something we strive to fulfill and convince souls of everywhere.

This Sunday's liturgy is concerned with the forgiveness of injuries and like last Sunday, is made up of two elements, i.e., the reading of the history of David which is continued in the Breviary and that of a passage of one of the epistles of St. Peter the Apostle whose feast is kept about this time. In fact the week beginning with the seventh Sunday after Pentecost was called the week after the feast of the Apostles. When David had gained his victory over Goliath the Israelites went back victorious to their towns and villages singing to the accompaniment of instruments, "Saul slew his thousands and David his ten thousands." Angered at this and with jealousy eating into his ...More

There is a commemoration today of Saint Maria Goretti, the twelve-year old virgin martyr who was beatified by Pope Pius XII in 1947 and, on June 25, 1950 Maria Goretti became the first saint in the history of the Church to have her mother present at her canonization. Imagine the ecstasy realized by Maria's dear mother who had carried her precious child in her womb at the beginning of the last decade of the nineteenth century. She was born in Corinaldo, Italy to a humble sharecropper Luigi Goretti and his wife Assunta Carlini on October 16, 1890 and baptized the next day in the parish church of San Francesco. Six years later Bishop Giulio Boschi, the Shepherd of Senigallia, bestowed Confirmation ...More

To enhance each Sunday's Epistle and Gospel we present this special feature provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary for the Epistle and Gospel of the Fifth Sunday After Pentecost with the cogent comprehensive Catholic Commentary penned by Father George Leo Haydock that if one is reconcilied with his fellow man then he will always be reconciled with God for he will remain in the state of grace, which is necessary for participating in the sacramental fullness of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. If we do not comply with our Lord's commands, the consequences are catastrophic as we see with Make amends with thy brother before partaking at the altar


Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a twelve-minute sermon given six years ago by Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI, where he points out the theme for the Fifth Sunday after Pentecost is holiness beginning with St. Peter entreating us to turn away from evil and Jesus' stern intimidation that we cannot assume we will be saved if our hearts are not true. Father cites several other passages of the gospels where Our Lord points out that we cannot take our salvation for granted, but that we should strive to be like Christ for we are temples of the Holy Ghost and have the instinctive goal of striving for holiness. Father also provides what some of the saints advised on becoming holier. It is very simple, Father emphasizes, merely: avoid evil, and do good. He encourages those who may think they could never be a saint, but often times it is through misconception that they have to be exactly like them. Father maintains that sanctity consists of the virtues we maintain because we are called to be saints. After all, saints are sinners striving to do good. So also, Father urges us to Strive For Holiness


Today we continue with Day Two of the nine day Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel that was composed in part by St. Simon Stock in the thirteenth century for it was to him the Mother of God, dressed in the colors of Carmel as a Carmelite holding her divine Son as a child, appeared to him and bequeathed to him the Brown Scapular which every true Catholic wears without fail 24 hours a day. It is similar to the monastic scapulars in miniature form and is considered a sacramental since it is blessed and Our Lady has promised that those who wear it faithfully will be granted the grace of final perseverance as long as they remain in the state of Sanctifying Grace. Today is Day Two

St. Felicitas and her seven sons were put to death for the Faith, about the year 162, under Marcus Aurelius. The sons preceded their mother to Heaven; she followed them four months afterwards. In order to strike terror into the hearts of the Christians the death sentences were not all carried out in the same place, for Januarius was beaten to death with leaden scourges and was buried in the Cemetery of Praetextatus, Felix and Philip died under the whip and received burial in that of Priscilla, Silanus was thrown from a precipice and was interred with his mother in the Cemetery of Maximus, Alexander, Vitalis and Martial were beheaded and were given the honor of sepultare in the Cemetery of the Giordani. The earliest list of the Roman feasts of martyrs, known as the "Depositio Martyrum" and dating from the time ...More

Some of our newer readers may not be familiar with John Gregory and his writings which we endorse heartily. Thus we want to bring you his own story of how he had the courage to go against the grain, to upset the apple cart, and cry out to the blind-obedience robots of the Novus Ordo village what is so obvious: You're going the wrong way! The emperors aren't wearing any clothes. Through prayer, research, and seeking out the truth he came to the only answer in this time of the Great Apostasy: We remain in an interminable interregnum. Hopefully this will help others in their struggles to understand what has happened over the past fifty plus years where what the world considers "Catholic" today bears no resemblance to what was truly Catholic for nearly 2000 years. John shares his difficult, but definitive journey to Truth that, like so many, will undoubtedly lead back to the catacombs in the Traditional Mass centers that are growing as more and more realize we must obey God, not man in the CONciLIAR church's efforts to please man, not God. Not good as John explains in his piece from over eleven years ago. How I became an Authentic Roman Catholic


Monday is Day Three the nine day Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel which was composed in part by St. Simon Stock in the thirteenth century for it was to him the Mother of God, dressed in the colors of Carmel as a Carmelite holding her divine Son as a child, appeared to him and bequeathed to him the Brown Scapular which every true Catholic wears without fail twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. It is similar to the monastic scapulars in miniature form and is considered a sacramental since it is blessed and Our Lady has promised that those who wear it faithfully will be granted the grace of final perseverance as long as they remain in the state of Sanctifying Grace. Today is Day Three

Today we observe the feria of the Fifth Sunday after Pentecost. See ...More

There is also a commemoration today of the Feast of Pope Saint Pius I, Martyr and great Pope of the Second Century. According to the earliest list of the popes, given by Irenaeus ("Adv. haer.", II, xxxi; cf. Eusebius, "Hist. eccl.", V, vi), Pius was the ninth successor of St. Peter. The dates given in the Liberian Catalogue for his pontificate (146-61) rest on a false calculation of earlier chroniclers, and cannot be accepted. The only chronological datum we possess is supplied by the year of St. Polycarp of Smyrna's death, which may be referred with great certainty to 155-6. On his visit to Rome in the year before his death Polycarp found Anicetus, the successor of Pius, bishop there; consequently, the death of Pius must have occurred about 154. The "Liber Pontificalis" (ed. Duchesne, I, 132) says the father of Pius was Rufinus, and makes him a native of Aquileia; this is, however, probably a conjecture of the author, who had heard of Rufinus of Aquileia ...More

Again we thank Father Courtney E. Krier, pastor of St. Joseph's Traditional Catholic Church in Las Vegas who has graciously granted permission to republish a thorough series of "An Argument for SedeVacantism." Today he gets down to the point of what is the Church as he cites the Catechism of Trent, the Catholic Encyclopedia, the Scriptures, Saints, Doctors, and Popes on what exactly is the Mystical Body of Christ = the Church Miltant here on earth in the great Communion of Saints. You will see that what he presents in no way represents the Modernist CONciLIAR church spawned at Vatican 2 where men posing as popes have occupied the Chair invalidly, illegally, and must be null and void not only before Jesus Christ the Founder of the Faith, but also before man. Father shows the proof in part one: 1. What is the Catholic Church?


Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a five and half minute sermon given ten years ago for the feast of the holy Sovereign Pontiff St. Pius I, named after one of the Gifts of the Holy Ghost - piety. He was devoted to the Blessed Sacrament and revived devotion to the Most Precious Blood. His Excellency explains the reverence one must have and great care taken if even one drop should fall to the ground. He bemoans how so many sacrileges are committed today in the church of Darkness, which of course cannot confect the bread and wine into the flesh and blood of Christ. He encourages us to foster devotion to the Most Precious Blood as Pius did as he shares more on Pope St. Pius I


Monday is Day Three the nine day Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel which was composed in part by St. Simon Stock in the thirteenth century for it was to him the Mother of God, dressed in the colors of Carmel as a Carmelite holding her divine Son as a child, appeared to him and bequeathed to him the Brown Scapular which every true Catholic wears without fail twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

Today is Day Four

Born at Florence at the end of the 10th Century, John Gualbert was trained in the school of St. Benedict. He stamped out simony and brought back order and peace to the land of Tuscany.
At Vallombrosa he founded a monastery, whence came many saints and which still flourishes. On one occasion meeting the murderer of his brother he pardoned him in the name of the Redeemer. For this act he received a singular recognition from Our Crucified Lord. He died on July 12, 1073, and was canonized in 1193. Sts. Nabor and Felix suffered martyrdom at Milan under Maximian Herculeus, about the year 304. St. Ambrose honored their memory and from Milan devotion to them spread throughout the Universal Church. See the Mass for this holy Abbot along with a commemoration of the holy martyrs Sts. Nabor and Felix at Os justi

Again, with many new readers finding us over the years, we've decided to go retro with the Revelations to St. Bridget of Sweden which we intend to try to bring you each Wednesday during the summer. Here St. Bridget is so beautifully depicted in the painting by Michelle R. Maher. To see a larger copyrighted image click on the painting here. Jesus speaks to His bride Bridget in the second chapter about the articles of true Faith, and about what kind of adornments, tokens, and desires the bride must have in order to please the Bridegroom. Jesus expects us to love Him


Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a six-minute sermon given eight years ago for the feast of the holy confessor St. John Gualbert by Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great in Cincinnati, Ohio. St. John was very holy and became a Benedictine monk upon miraculously seeing Christ beckon him from the cross. He founded monasteries and went up against the bishop of Florence for the prelate's simony. Yet, St. John Gualbert forgave this wayward bishop, showing his love and humility. The bishop talks about the graces received by forgiving our enemies. He explains in sharing more on St. John Gualbert


We continue the nine day Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel that was composed in part by St. Simon Stock in the thirteenth century for it was to him the Mother of God, dressed in the colors of Carmel as a Carmelite holding her divine Son as a child, appeared to him and bequeathed to him the Brown Scapular which every true Catholic wears without fail 24 hours a day. It is similar to the monastic scapulars in miniature form and is considered a sacramental since it is blessed and Our Lady has promised that those who wear it faithfully will be granted the grace of final perseverance as long as they remain in the state of Sanctifying Grace. Today is Day Five

According to the list of Popes furnished us by St. Irenaeus, Pope Saint Anacletus is probably the same person as Pope Saint Cletus, the successor of Pope Saint Linus and the predecessor of Pope Saint Clement on the papal throne. Some say that he was banished from Rome and returned to rule the Holy See a second time. He completed the tomb of St. Peter at the Vatican, near which he was himself interred. To him is assigned the decree that bishops should be consecrated by three bishops at least; that clerics should be publicly ordained by their own bishop and that they all should receive Holy Communion after the consecration in the mass of ordination. He was martyred under the Emperor Trajan. See the Introit for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for holy Popes at Si diligis Me

Though we have been tweeting and posting his articles for the past few years, we want to bring you the gems he has posted on his excellent blog site Introibo ad Altare Dei. This first one we bring you today is from two and a half years ago on December 28, 2015 which applies just as much today in helping Traditional Catholics to keep the Faith when there are no true Masses they can get to. Though we know of his identity, he has requested anonymity because he is also a lawyer in New York City and, well, you know how satan would love to interfere. Just let it be said that he was in on the ground floor of the Catholic Traditionalist Movement begun by the late, great Father Gommar DePauw and he knows whereof he speaks in applying a true sensus Catholicus to everything he writes. We know you'll enjoy his columns that we intend to bring one of his gems that still remain very poignant today from the last few years every Thursday during the Summer.

We continue the nine day Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel that was composed in part by St. Simon Stock in the thirteenth century for it was to him the Mother of God, dressed in the colors of Carmel as a Carmelite holding her divine Son as a child, appeared to him and bequeathed to him the Brown Scapular which every true Catholic wears without fail 24 hours a day.

The holy Bishop and Doctor of the Church St. Bonaventure was born in Tuscany in 1221 as Giovanni Fidanza. In consequence of a miraculous cure, he entered the Franciscan Order. While still young, he became minister general; guided by his wise and prudent spirit, the Franciscan Order was saved from the schism which was about to divide the rigorous from the mild. He was closely united to St. Thomas Aquinas; both taught at the University of Paris at the same time. St. Bonaventure was created Cardinal and Bishop of Albano in 1273 by Pope Gregory X; he died on July 15 in the following year at Lyons whilst the Ecumenical Council was being held in that city. The Pope and the entire Council took part in his funeral; every priest in the world said Mass for his soul. St. Bonaventure is a true example of the ascetic Franciscan school, which ...More

July 14 is the Double Feast of Saint Bonaventure. He is the only doctor celebrated in July. Satan is indeed furious and we need today men of the caliber of St. Bonaventure who was a man full of "good fortune" from his earliest years. Humility was his virtue; his role model was St. Francis of Asissi, the holy founder who named him. He followed this man, continuing the ideals of the Franciscans, guiding them during turbulent times when growing pains created problems in the ranks and with various ecclesial authorities opposed to the Friars Minor. This Universal Doctor was one of the first saintly Cardinals of the Church. He was close friends with "The Angelic Doctor" St. Thomas Aquinas and the saintly king of France King Louis IX. He was the architect of the 2nd Council of Lyons and, fittingly, was called home by God immediately following completion of the Council. His work done on earth but continued through his writings and example; so much so that Saint Bonaventure is known as The Seraphic Doctor

Saint Henry was born to a life of command from the day of his birth in 972 to the day he died on this day in 1024. While still in his early twenties, at the death of his father, Henry became the Duke of Bavaria. His life until this point had been exemplified by piety and self-denial. His beloved wife, St. Cunegunda, rivaled him in the practice of virtue and in her desire to aid and love their people. Together, they lived in a state of chastity, so that, at the his death, Henry restored her as a virgin to her family. In 1002 AD, Henry was declared ruler of Germany and Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. During his reign he continued in the exercise of Christian and manly virtues. The poor were fed, justice prevailed and the military abilities of the Emperor were proved in battle and not found wanting. Whenever he waged war, it was due to the necessity of defending the rights of the Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Holy Church. Never did he seek might and power, but rather availed himself of it for the defense of the faith of his people. The salvation of souls was his greatest desire. So doing , he placed himself with great faith under the intercession of the communion of saints, fighting more often with prayers than with the force of arms. Angels and martyrs were visibly seen assisting him in a battle against the Slavs, when, with a small force he put to flight the larger enemy host and thus prevented their continued destruction of churches and the slaying of his innocent people. His rule extended to ...More

Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a five minute sermon by Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great in the Ohio's Queen City of Cincinnati, on the saintly Bavarian king, St. Henry, who like King St. Louis IX, put Christ first and foremost as the King. The bishop shares other important anniversaries of this date including St. Vladimir, ruler of Russia and a little known Blessed Melissa (?) who founded a religious order during French Revolution and eventually established a missionary endeavor in Africa. She followed Church law even if the bishops and even pope were not. His Excellency shares these attributes along with the holy Emperor of Germany St. Henry for all manifested the wonderful Gift of the Holy Ghost - fortitude, something that sustained the holy King St. Henry


We continue the nine day Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel in preparation for tomorrow's Double Major Feast. This novena was composed in part by St. Simon Stock in the thirteenth century for it was to him the Mother of God, dressed in the colors of Carmel as a Carmelite holding her divine Son as a child, appeared to him in 1251 and bequeathed to him the Brown Scapular which every true Catholic wears without fail twenty-four hours a day. It is similar to the monastic scapulars in miniature form and is considered a sacramental since it is blessed and Our Lady has promised that those who wear it faithfully will be granted the grace of final perseverance as long as they remain in the state of Sanctifying Grace. Today is Day Eight



We urge you to click the Rosary banner above for the Third 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 third Saturday of the Fifteen we focus on detachment fromn things of this world, contempt of riches, and love of poverty illustrated in the humble Bethlehem manger as we feature the Third Joyful Mystery - the magnificent event of the Nativity of Jesus Christ for the Third Saturday

July is a month when the world grows even darker, governments and hierarchs grow more sinister in their bargain with the devil to eradicate God and His true Church. We turn then to the Son of God and implore Jesus to wash us in His Most Precious Blood and have mercy on us, to save us in this time of great confusion and peril, the time of the Great Apostasy, where so many have foresaken God and the true Faith. Therefore it is left to Christ's few left among the remnant, those few He will find who still have the true Faith He instituted and who practice it according to the infallible, perennial Magisterium of His Church, not conceding even one iota of compromise to the counterfeit church of conciliarism or to the demonic government that has usurped man's rights before God. It is all because of our sins that Christ died and it is because of our sins that we are receiving just punishment for abandoning Him and His Commandments. It is truly a time of Tenebrae when the darkness grows even darker. Thus it is left to us to encourage others to take up with us the heavenly weapon that, outside of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, is the most powerful tool we have to combat all the demonic activities in ecclesiastical and secular circles that threaten souls. The very fact so many are lukewarm and that the Lord will vomit them out of His mouth as documented in Apocalypse 3: 16, should prompt us all to pray all the more and call upon Heaven for mercy. We must understand that the innocent will suffer along with the guilty, but the innocent who truly follow all that Christ established and are faithful to the end, even if it leads to martyrdom as it did in early Rome, England and France and so many other spots throughout the world throughout history, will be rewarded with a heavenly crown as Christ has promised and as Saint Paul affirms in his epistles. For the truths of what the Church really teaches, see below when true, reliable popes preserved the constituted evangelic Tradition and the purity of the orthodox Faith and the Christian religion.

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Prayer Before the Crucifix

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

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



  • The Fatima Prayers

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    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.

    Prayer to St. Michael

    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 heavenly hosts, 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.
