While last week five of the seven days featured martyrs, this week is mostly dedicated to Confessors from Monday through Thursday, except a the martyrs' commemoration of St. Symphorosa and her seven sons on Tuesday and the Virgin and Martyr St. Margaret on Thursday. Of course, the week begins with the feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, though this year it is superseded by the Sixth Sunday after Pentecost with the Haydock Commentary provided by John Gregory: "If we die to sin we will always be nourished", and a ten-minute sermon by Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI and the rest of the week Bishop Daniel Dolan provides sermons on three confessors and a penitent.
But the focus is also on the 766th Anniversary of the Brown Scapular that was bestowed to St. Simon Stock in 1251 for the entire Church Militant. The renowned Abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger provides a reflection on The Lasting Magnifcence, Grace, and Power of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and Ava Bell reminds what the garment of grace entails for "The Brown Scapular is Not a Good Luck Charm". One must be in the State of Sanctifyfing Grace. She explains the Sabbatine Privilege and we complete the last day of the Novena with a special Act of Consecration to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel.
On Monday we begin the Nine-Day Novena to St. Anne, Mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary. We start the week out on the feast of St. Alexis with a retro gem from John Gregory's series Faithful to Tradition entitled this week "The 'New' New Covenant."
Tuesday the feast of St. Camillus de Lellis we present the third in Father Courtney Krier's series An Argument For Sedevacantism where this week he examines the fact The Church is One. We continue on the feast of St. Vincent de Paul, whose body remains incorrupt behind the high altar in the Parisian church dedicated to him, with the inspiring Church-approved
messages to St. Bridget of Sweden with the Third Chapter of Book One where Our Lord is like a Divine magnet drawing us closer to Him. On Thursday's feast of St. Jerome Emiliani we bring you an insightful piece by Introibo ad Altare Dei on the danger of Cursillos for one could and often do get easily "Brainwashed into Modernism". Friday we present a comparison between the True Holy Sacrifice of the Mass of All Ages and the Protestant-pagan-Masonic Novus Ordo and why one cannot in good faith attend the latter for the sake of one's own salvation. See reason number one in "Truth vs. Fiction". Finally, on Saturday the feast of the holy penitent St. Mary Magdalen, we observe the Presentation for purity of body and soul for the Fourth 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?"

Holy Mother Church reminds us today of the effects of the two great Sacraments: Baptism and the Eucharist, which she has conferred at Easter and Whitsunday. Her mind being still occupied with the Sacraments of Baptism and Eucharist, which she has administered at Easter and at Pentecost, the Church reminds us today of the effects of these two great Sacraments.
Dead through sin, we have been plunged and, as it were, buried with Jesus in the baptismal water. "All we who have been baptized," says St. Paul, "it is in His death that we have been baptized" (Epistle). By dying on the Cross He atoned for our sins, and "our evil nature was crucified with Him" (Epistle): we must therefore die to sin and no longer commit sin. "If we have died with Christ," continued the Apostle, "we believe that we shall live with Him." "Christ having risen from the dead, we must also walk in a new life."
The Eucharist is the food of this divine life. The multiplication of loaves, related by St. Mark in today's Gospel,...More
The feast of Carmel dates back to the time of the Old Testament for Carmel is the mountain of the renewal of the Covenant and Divine intervention through Elijah the Prophet around 900 BC as revealed in Isaiah, Jeremiah and 1 Kings. Carmel, which lies on the border between Samaria and Galilee 20 miles from Nazareth, is derived from the Hebrew Karem el which means "garden" or "orchard" and "vine of God." It has become a symbol of grace and that is why it so so fitting that the rain Elijah [Elias] prayed for came at Carmel as the "little cloud" (3 Kings 18: 44) turned into a mighty rain that wiped out the drought.
So also in the New Covenant God sent "a little cloud" in the person of His Blessed Mother Mary to rain upon mankind the graces God bestows as the Mediatrix of all graces. In the 5th Century, Chrysippus of Jerusalem wrote of the Blessed Virgin, "Hail, Cloud of Rain that offers drink to the souls of the Saints." It was around the 12th Century that Carmel first became a place of veneration toward the Mother of God and monks took up sanctuary there living a holy rule. It was the beginning of the Carmelite Order founded in the Holy Land in 1154 by Saint Berthold and dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Their original name was Brothers of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel. The original rule was set down by the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem in 1209. The Crusades were instrumental in bringing the Carmelites to Europe through the work of Saint Simon Stock whose feast this date the Church formally celebrated. This English monk learned through private revelation of locutions and visions from Our Lady that he was to
to join an order not known in Britain, yet dedicated to her, and was asked to wait until a few White Friars, as they were called, came to England with the returning Crusaders. Then he was guided to join this Order of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
To enhance each Sunday's Epistle and Gospel we present this special feature provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. We publish it here in conjunction with the Epistle and Gospel for the Sunday Mass, with the cogent comprehensive Catholic Commentary penned by Father George Leo Haydock. For the Sixth Sunday after Pentecost we are reminded that through baptism we die to sin and are crucified with Christ, confident in knowing that if we are faithful to Him He will always be faithful to us, and, as St. Mark's Gospel illustrates in the loaves and the fishes, there is no end to His mercy and promises. We will always have nourishment for the soul. If we die to sin we will always be nourished
Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a ten-minute sermon given six years ago by Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI, Rector of St. Joseph Seminary at the City of Mary in Rathdrum, Idaho. Father points out the theme for the Sixth Sunday after Pentecost on the second account of the loaves and the fishes is about the abundance of God's treasures and how He bestows so much on us both spiritually and temporally, always providing for our needs.
We should not worry since the birds of the air are taken care of and Christ emphasizes how much more important the soul is than the body. The graces are available to us if we but take advantage of assisting at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and observe devotions, as well as silent prayer. It is truly amazing how many souls are lost considering God asks so little of them. Only on Judgment Day will all be revealed. If one is truthful they will say either they wished to profit by grace or they did not. It's that simple. Father explains in The Abundance of Grace is there for the taking
Down through the ages Mount Carmel has been a rock of inspiration and sanctification from the time of Elias to present day. The story of Carmel is prose, poetry and prayer and basically the benchmark of the Blessed Virgin Mary's integral role as Advocate, Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix of all graces. Carmel has been favored by Our Lady as foretold in the Old Testament and as manifested to St. Simon Stock 672 years ago in 1251 when she bestowed on him the Brown Scapular and the amazing promise of ultimate salvation to all who abide by the rules of the Scapular. In addition, at Lourdes the Blessed Mother appeared to Bernadette as Our Lady of Mt. Carmel on this day 155 years ago and in the same heavenly garb on her final apparition at Fatima on October 13, 1917. We provide a thorough backgrounder on the meaning and magnificence of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel and its history, masterfully conveyed by Abbe Dom Prosper Gueranger in his masterpiece The Liturgical Year as well as the Act of Consecration to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in honor of today's Double Major Commemoration in a feature we have chosen to call The Lasting Magnificence, Grace, and Power of Our Lady of Mount Carmel
We've all heard those words above by St. Francis of Assisi, but how many of us really understand this? Ava Bell, a committed Traditional Catholic, relates how this hit home for her in her earlier days before receiving the grace to truly see where she was heading. Her experience is pertinent for our times as she presents a sobering story that should shake the timbers of our souls and wake the echoes of those who assume security when, in truth, there is only one way to secure eternal salvation and no amount of superstitions will stay the inevitable truth that for any sacramental to be effective, the one receiving it must be of good will and open to the grace of God, specifically Sanctifying Grace. Without this protection, all else is futile, fateful. She candidly explains this and the Sabbatin Privilege in her article The Brown Scapular is Not a Good Luck Charm
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 Ninth and Final Day
Act of Consecration to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel
O Mary, Queen and Mother of Carmel, I come today to consecrate myself to thee, for my whole life is but a small return for the many graaces and blessings that have come from God to me through thy hands. Since thou lookest with special kindness on those who wearest thy Scapular, I implore the to strengthen my weakness with thy power, to enlighten the darkness of my mind with thy wisdom, and to increase in me Faith, Hope and Charity that I may repay each day my debt of humble homage to thee.
May thy Scapular bring me thy special protection in my daily struggle to be faithful to thy Divine Son and to thee. May it separate me from all that is sinful in life and remind me constantly of my duty to imitate thy virtues. From now on, I shall strive to live in God's Presence, and offer all to Jesus through thee. Dearest Mother, support me by thy never-failing love and lead me to paradise through the merits of Christ and thy own intercession. Amen.
Also see the special indulgence and promise to those who observe the stipulations as asked by Our Lady and approved by true Popes. See Sabbatine Privilege
July 17 is traditionally the feast of the holy, humble confessor Saint Alexius. According to the most recent researches he was an Eastern saint whose veneration was transplanted from the Byzantine empire to Rome, whence it spread rapidly throughout western Christendom. Together with the name and veneration of the Saint, his legend was made known to Rome and the West by means of Latin versions and recensions based on the form current in the Byzantine Orient. This process was facilitated by the fact that according to the earlier Syriac legend of the of the Saint, the "Man of God," of Edessa (identical with St. Alexius) was a native of Rome. The Greek legend, which antedates the ninth century and is the basis of all later versions, makes Alexius the son of a distinguished Roman named Euphemianus.
The night of his marriage he secretly left his father's house and journeyed to Edessa in the Syrian Orient where, for seventeen years, he led the life of a pious ascetic. As the fame of his sanctity grew, he left Edessa and returned to Rome, where, for seventeen years, he dwelt as a beggar under the stairs of his father's palace, unknown to his father or wife. After his death, assigned to the year 417, a document was found on his body, in which he revealed his identity. He was forthwith honored as a saint and his father's house was converted into a church placed under the patronage of Alexius.
In this expanded form the legend is first found in a hymn (canon) of the Greek hymnographer Josephus (d. 883). It also occurs in a Syrian biography of Alexius, written not later than the ninth century, and which presupposes the existence of a Greek life of the Saint. The latter is in turn based on an earlier Syriac legend (referred to above), composed at Edessa between 450 and 475. Although in this latter document the name of Alexius is not mentioned, he is manifestly the same as the "Man of God" of whom this earlier Syriac legend relates that he lived in Edessa during the episcopate of Bishop Rabula (412-435) as a poor beggar, and solicited alms at the church door.
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 more of his past gems. This one is from eleven years ago when Ratzinger was still occupying Rome. It was his and his predecessors' intent to do away with the thrice-defined dogma "Outside the Church there is No Salvation" and, as we can see today, Bergoglio has taken up that cause even more so, doing all he can to destroy what Catholicism is still left in the CONciLIAR church. John shows that universal salvation is heresy, blatant, manifest heresy as he shares the differences in Moral Law, Ceremonial Law, and Juridical Law from the Old Covenant to the New Covenant Christ established, to the new "New" concoction brewed up by the robber barons who usurped the authority of the true Church and today practically eclipse it except for Traditional Mass Centers throughout the world who stay steadfastly firm to the truths and traditions of holy Mother Church as he explains The "New" New Covenant
Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a six-minute sermon given nine years ago on the feast of the holy confessor St. Alexius by Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great in Cincinnati, Ohio. He reminds us to
clothe ourselves in the virtue of humility, illustrated by St. Alexius. On the saint's wedding night of an arranged marriage, he left his wife his father's house in Rome and traveled to Syria where he led the life of a pious beggar while also caring for those who were desolate, then returned to Rome as a beggar where he lived beneath the stairs of his father's home, unbeknownst to anyone in his family. Those he tended to did not know that he was the son of a wealthy Roman until after his death. That is why humility is so important so that we don't look at ourselves, but to look to God and leave all in His hands just as St. Alexius did. The bishop explains in his sermon on
Today is the traditional observance of the Humility of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the beginning of the Nine-Day Novena leading up to the feast of Mary's holy Mother St. Anne who instilled in her the virtue of humility. The painting above of the Blessed Mother holding her divine Son embodies humility and was painted by a very humble artist Michelle Maher, a dedicated traditional Catholic, who has an artistic talent that shines through in her work which for her is a true labor of love with the emphasis on love. If you would like to know more about her paintings, contact us at the email at the bottom of this page and we can put you in touch with her. To view a larger rendition of this painting, click here
There are three known Novenas to St. Anne. We present two submitted by Margaret Omlor, the daughter of the renowned Patrick Henry Omlor. This Novena ends on the feast of the holy Apostle St. Jame's the Greater, which is the eve of St. Anne's feastday. Click here for Day One of Novena to St. Anne
He was the son of an officer who had served both in the Neapolitan and French armies. His mother died when he was a child, and he grew up absolutely neglected. When still a youth he became a soldier in the service of Venice and afterwards of Naples, until 1574, when his regiment was disbanded. While in the service he became a confirmed gambler, and in consequence of his losses at play was at times reduced to a condition of of destitution.
The kindness of a Franciscan friar induced him to apply for admission to that order, but he was refused. He then betook himself to Rome, where ...More|
NOVENA TO ST. ANNE
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 begins to go through each of the four marks of the Church, with focusing on the Oneness of the Church as it always was from the Apostles through the pontificate of His Holiness Pope Pius XII. Father proves this with decrees of Councils, true popes, and trusted theologians as he cites the Catechism of Trent, the Catholic Encyclopedia, the Scriptures, Saints, Doctors, and Popes on what exactly it means to say: 2a. The Catholic Church is One
Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a seven-minute for the feast of St. Camillus de Lellis by Bishop Daniel Dolan. St. Camillus expressed great humility and charity for the sick. While he attended to the physical needs of the ill, he held paramount the healing of their souls.
He himself was incurably ill, and leaned on Our Lady as Health of the Sick, so much so that he embraced those were the same and sought to right the wrongs done in the infirmaries. He saw in each wretched patient the image and likeness of Mary's divine Son Jesus. Despite his ailments, he founded a religious order and hospitals, and is known today as one of the patron saints of the dying. The bishop shares the miracle at his death in sharing the life of
St. Camillus De Lellis
Today is the feast of the holy confessor and religious founder St. Vincent de Paul. He was born of a peasant family at Pouy in Gascony, France, in 1580. Though some authorities have said it was 1576. He made his humanities studies at Dax with the Cordeliers, and his theological studies, interrupted by a short stay at Saragossa, were made at Toulouse where he graduated in theology. Ordained in 1600 he remained at Toulouse or in its vicinity acting as tutor while continuing his own studies. Brought to Marseilles for an inheritance, he was returning by sea in 1605 when Turkish pirates captured him and took him to Tunis. He was sold as a slave, but escaped in 1607
NOVENA TO ST. ANNE
We continue with Book One where Jesus continues His soliloquy to His Bride Bridget as He praises her mentor, a holy Swedish theologian named Master Mathias who, though he was tempted many times, overcame all. Jesus assures her that she also can and to lean on what she was taught. He provides her with assurances that Mathias was victorious and now is reaping those rewards of perseverance and fidelity. Christ's words are as pertinent today as they were for St. Bridget in her time. We can learn from this for we are all sinners who are tempted, but it is in striving for holiness that we can eventually become saints. Our Lord inspires us in Chapter Three, Magnificent Magnet of the Divine
Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you an eight-minute sermon given eight years ago for the feast of the holy confessor St. Vincent de Paul by Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great in Cincinnati, Ohio. St. Vincent, whose body remains incorrupt today, was born during reign of Pope St. Pius V. He was captured by the
Turks in northern Africa and then released, and that implanted in him the desire to convert the Mohammedans as well as bring comfort to poor Christians, and, like St. Camillus, he put the welfare of the poor person's soul first and foremost. He believed in the axiom that you teach a man to fish, he'll eat for the rest of his life and so he organized classes for poor people to better themselves, but as a holy priest, it was their eternal salvation that was most important. But, as the Bishop says, no man is an island, we must all show charity to our neighbor as he shows the example of the holy
St. Vincent de Paul
Though we know of the author's identity, this faithful Traditional Catholic has respectfully 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 Father Gommar DePauw and he knows whereof he speaks in applying a true sensus Catholicus
to everything he writes. We continute bringing you his past gems posted on his excellent blog site Introibo ad Altare Dei
. Today's article is taken from December 22, 2014 in which he exposes the vast dangers of the charismatic movement of Cursillo which leaves one perplexed and doubting the faith via false praise and emotions that translate into Protestant-like feelings that often trump faith. Therefore, you can see the dangers. Plus the very fact the CONciLIAR church has endorsed this demonic movement is just another reason to stay clear of such nonsense for those who do attend are often Brainwashed into Modernism
Today we begin a series each Friday throughout the summer in comparing the good with the bad, the Canonical Apostolic Traditional Latin Mass, the Mass of All Ages against the sacrilegious Protestant-Masonic Mess called the Novus Ordo foisted on the faithful by Paul the Sick in 1969 with the tragic results being the loss of faith in both clergy and congregant. While so many are confused, few search the reasons, few really know the Faith and, because they don't, they have lost or will lose the Faith. We want to be a deterrant to the descent toward the abyss and so we resume a series we ran several years ago, but is important to repeat for a whole new readership hungry for the truth. Thus we present side by side the effects of the True Mass and why you should flee from the Novus Ordo. After this, you can't say you weren't warned or didn't know. Thus we begin with reason number one.
"Teaching them to observe whatsoever I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world."
St. Matthew 28: 20
"...because they receive not the love of the truth that they might be saved. Therefore God shall send them the operation of error to believe a lie."
2 Thessalonians 2: 10

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.

The links above and below provide almost daily updates. The two above can be trusted totally, while we urge a mild caution on the two below because of their refusal to admit Francis is a false pope.
For other sites that provide the tenets of the Faith but are not daily, we refer you to
We encourage you to learn more about the Traditional Latin Mass - the true Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in these videos at this link because each time you worthily assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in person, you gain graces that are placed in a "golden chalice", so to speak, and is offered to God to be weighed in substance when you stand before Him at your Particular Judgment. The more you have filled this chalice, the better will it go for your spiritual welfare in eternity, enhanced by your cooperation with grace. Know the Mass
To assist all in striving toward holiness, click on the Confessional to your right to review your transgressions through a thorough Examination of Conscience
When One Cannot physically assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass
we provide additional prayers that can be supplemented with the ORDINARY OF THE HOLY MASS and the PROPER OF THE DAY to enable you to better prepare yourself at home. Of course, this never replaces actually being there, but it is much better than attending the Novus Ordo services. Therefore we have gleaned from The Key of Heaven prayers to say at home. It is very comforting to know that the Holy Mass is offered for us even when we are not actually present. But to enjoy the benefits which it procures, we must by a SPIRITUAL COMMUNION become partakers of the altar from which we are temporarily banished. Here we provide prayers in preparation for fulfilling assistance in absentia in addition to the ORDINARY OF THE HOLY MASS and PROPER OF THE DAY. PRAYERS IN ABSENTIA
Prayer Before the Crucifix
Behold, O kind and most sweet Jesus, I cast myself upon my knees in Thy sight, and with the most fervent desire of my soul I pray and beseech Thee that Thou wouldst fix deep within my heart lively sentiments of Faith, Hope and Charity, with true repentance for my sins, and a firm purpose of amendment, whilst with deep affection and grief of soul I ponder within myself and mentally contemplate Thy five most precious Wounds; having before my eyes the words which David in prophesy spoke concerning Thee, O Good Jesus: "They have pierced My hands and My feet; they have numbered all My bones."

The Fatima Prayers
My God, I believe, I adore, I trust and I love Thee; and I beg pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not trust, and do not love Thee.
(repeat the above 3 times then bow your head in reciting the following:)
O Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in tabernacles throughout the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in unison with the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners.
O Most Holy Trinity, I adore Thee! My God, my God, I love Thee in the Most Blessed Sacrament!
O my Jesus, it is for love of Thee, in reparation for the offenses committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary and for the conversion of poor sinners.

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.
Sáncte Míchael Archángele, defénde nos in proélio, cóntra nequítiam et insídias diáboli ésto præsídium. Ímperet ílli Déus, súpplices deprecámur: tuque, prínceps milítiæ cæléstis, Sátanam aliósque spíritus malígnos, qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in múndo, divína virtúte, in inférnum detrúde. Ámen.
