In this month of the Most Precious Blood, how fitting that we have one week where four who personally saw and walked with Jesus Christ and were always faithful to Him. Those we speak of are first on Tuesday St. James the Greater, one of the first Apostles chosen by Our Lord, and St. Christopher who carried the Christ Child across a swollen river. On Wednesday we honor the mother of the Mother of God, St. Anne, who was the grandmother of Jesus and played a significant role in aiding Mary during His early years. On Saturday we celebrate St. Martha who waited on and served her Master as recorded in the Sacred Scriptures.
On Sunday John Gregory provides the Haydock Commentary for the Seventh Sunday after Pentecost Those who do not yield goood fruit and remain unrepentant will be cast into the eternal fire. accompanied by an audio sermon "By their fruits you shall know them" from Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI reinforcing the consequences of the rotten fruits that have bespoiled countless souls over the past 50 years and reminding all of Christ's words in Matthew 7: 15-21. His Excellency Bishop Daniel Dolan provides three audio sermons this week on the holy martyrs St. Apollinaris and St. Christina for Sunday and Monday, and the holy servant St. Martha on Saturday.
On Dovetailing the theme of Sunday's Gospel, John Gregory shares a piece he wrote four years ago as he asks: Do You See Satan's Plan Now?. On Tuesday Fr. Courtney Krier continues his series An Argument For Sedevacantism with continuing the reasons why the CONciLIAR church cannot be Catholic just by the Four Marks of the Church as he presents The Catholic Church is Holy. On that same day we celebrate the feast of St. James as Fr. Benedict brings us a nine-minute sermon on the First Apostle to be Martyred and, because there is merely a commemoration of St. Christopher, he can get lost in the shuffle as the renowned Benedictine Abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger notes in his reflection of The Christ-Bearer. On Tuesday we complete the Novena to St. Anne in preparation for Wednesday's feast of the holy Mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Again John Gregory provides contemplation on Jesus' saintly grandmother with The Mother of the Mother of God. In addition Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey delivers a wake up call for our times with A Heartfelt Letter from a Concerned Catholic Mom, and the late Denise Michele provides a tribute to Good Saint Anne, Patroness of Mothers, and finish up the feast with the inspiring Church-approved messages to St. Bridget of Sweden where Our Lord imparts to Bridget the very wisdom of knowing what the devil is doing in Be not deceived.
On Thursday we bring you another gem from Introibo ad Altare Dei blog from a year ago on the dangers of the Luminous Mysteries that deny the purpose of the holy Rosary of her divine Son's life as seen through the eyes of Mary. Mary is de-emphasized in the Masonic luminous set of 50 Hail Mary's which is not by accident but all part of the destruction of Catholicism as you'll see in The Illuminati Mysteries. 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 two of the Transubstantiation vs. "the Abomination of Desolation" in "Truth vs. Fiction". Finally, on Saturday the feast of St. Martha we bring you a lesson from the University of Virtue by the late, dear Cyndi Cain when she reminded how we could all learn from the example of Martha by realizing that There is Work to be Done and we complete the Joyful Mysteries with the Finding of the Child Jesus in the Temple with the intention of receiving the gift of wisdom to recognize the wolves in sheep's clothing and warn the others for the sake of saving souls. This is the focus for the whole week concluding with the Fifth 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.

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?"

In commenting on today's Introit, St. Augustine remarks: "Hand and tongue must agree together; let the one glorify God and the other act accordingly." True wisdom does not consist only in hearing God's words but in fulfilling them; not only in praying to Him, but in showing Him by our actions that we love Him. "The Gospel," says St. Hilary, "warns us, that pleasing words and kindly airs are to be appraised according to the fruit of a man's works, and that a man is to be judged, not only as he paints himself in words but as he shows himself in deeds, since often the sheeps' clothing serves to hide the fierceness of the wolf. Therefore, it is by our mode of life that we must merit eternal happiness, desiring what is good, avoiding evil and obeying the heavenly precepts with our whole heart, so that
St. Apollinaris was the disciple of St. Peter, who preached the Gospel at Ravenna. He was one of the first great martyrs of the church. He was made Bishop of Ravenna by the Apostle himself. The miracles he wrought there soon attracted official attention, for they and his preaching won many converts to the Faith, while at the same time bringing upon him the fury of the idolaters, who beat him cruelly and drove him from the city. He was found half dead on the seashore, and kept in
TO ST. ANNE
To enhance each Sunday's Epistle and Gospel we present this special feature provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. For the Seventh Sunday after Pentecost, quite possibly the most powerful of affirmations is given by our Lord and Savior that it isn't that difficult to tell who are the false prophets and heretics for by their fruits we shall know them. There is nothing ambiguous about Christ's words that a bad tree will be chopped down and rooted out, then cast into the fire. What other kind of fire would the Son of Man be talking about in His parable but eternal hellfire? It dovetails with St. Paul's words in the epistle that the wages of sin is death, as in mortal sin equals death to eternal life; and that eternal life is available only through the grace of God, our salvation merited by Christ's offering Himself on the Cross, shedding every last drop of His Most Precious Blood for us. A most fitting commentary to the Epistle and Gospel for the Seventh Sunday after Pentecost in these tumultuous times when all that is Catholic is mocked in Rome and throughout the world. They forget that Those who do not yield good fruit and remain unrepentant will be cast into the eternal fire
Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a twelve-minute sermon given five years ago by Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI, Rector of St. Joseph Seminary at the City of Mary in Rathdrum, Idaho. Father asks, in speaking of today's gospel, how do we judge who is a false teacher? He shows that we have to judge by one's words and actions. Are they in sync with all the teachings of holy Mother Church. Father relates today's situation to the Old Testament and the traitor Absolam who wreaked so much havoc because of his own ambitions. Father asks us to test the spirits, know the true Faith so you will not be led astray. He refers to those in the CONciLIAR church who don't want to try to know the truth, using the excuse that they are not theologians, but Father points out we don't need to be to know the false church of Vatican 2 is a bad tree that is destined for the fire for there are no good fruits. Is it a good tree or a bad tree? As Father notes, the answer is obvious for By Their Fruits You Shall Know Them
Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you an eleven-minute sermon given eight years ago during a boys' retreat for the feast of the holy bishop and martyr St. Apollinaris who was sent by St. Peter to the pagan side of
Italy where he was persecuted for 28 years as he strove to build God's Church. Just as food is nourishing to our body, so also prayer and knowing about the saints is nourishing to our souls. The bishop relates about how animals work together, so also the Church Militant and Church Triumphant need to work together to help not only souls on earth, but the Church Suffering. We need to be humble enough to be shown and then be humble enough to work together for the glory of God through cooperating with His graces. We need the true Church to guide us toward our heavenly goal as St. Apollinaris preached nearly 2000 years ago.
Today we bring you an article by John from Easter Week four years ago. We have seen the systematic destruction of the Church founded by Christ by the last five anti-popes, all hand-picked by Satan to deceive even the elect. But what about the elect? Isn't it time they woke up and realized they can only live the lie just so long? Do they not realize that the newest emperor (read anti-pope here) has no clothes and, like the Wizard of Oz, he is nothing but a fraud? Not only is he not Catholic, he's not even a priest, but a mere layman, one who leans left and even more left with his socialist screed that has nothing to do with the Nicene Creed. And yet, dollar to a donut, the same ol' resist-yet-recognize crowd will make excuse after excuse for Mr. Bergoglio the unFrancis not because they really believe this man could ever uphold the constituted evangelic Tradition and the purity of the orthodox faith, but because they're too proud to admit the sedevacantists have had it right all along and with each passing day that becomes more and more evident to all except those who "receive not the love of the truth, that they might be saved" The result: "God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying: that all may be judged who have not believed the truth, but have consented to iniquity." John asks,
Do You See Satan's Plan Now?
Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you an eight-minute sermon given eight years ago on the commemoration of the holy virgin and martyr St. Christina. He talks about how the catacomb and shrine of St. Christina was discovered in the middle of a lake, silencing the Masons who tried to debunk she even existed. His Excellency relates that she came back to life from Purgatory and could not bear the stench of sin. She is known as St. Christina the Astonishing who wanted to warn many of what lay ahead, yet so many dismissed her as crazy. The bishop also talks about tomorrow's saint St. James the Greater on how Our Lady's discretion where, to avoid jealousy and division among the apostles, she always prudently and privately spoke with the brother of St. John. Each person should ask Mary to be her favorite child as was St. James and
Saint James the Greater was the son of Zebedee and Salome (Cf. Matthew 27:56; Mark 15:40; 16:1). Zahn asserts that Salome was the daughter of a priest. James is styled "the Greater" to distinguish him from the Apostle James "the Less", who was probably shorter of stature. We know nothing of St. James's early life. He was the brother of Saint John, the beloved disciple, and probably the elder of the two. His parents seem to have been people of means as appears from the following facts.
Zebedee was a fisherman of the Lake of Galilee, who probably lived in or near Bethsaida (John 1:44), perhaps in Capharnaum; and had some boatmen or hired men as his usual attendants (Mark 1:20).
Salome was one of the pious women who afterwards followed Christ and "ministered unto him of their substance" (cf. Matthew 27:55, sq.; Mark 15:40; 16:1; Luke 8:2 sq.; 23:55-24:1).
St. John was personally known to the high-priest (John 18:16); and must have had wherewithal to provide for Mary, the Mother of Jesus (John 19:27).
It is probable, according to Acts 4:13, that John (and consequently his brother James) had not received the technical training of the rabbinical schools; in this sense they

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 continues going through each of the four marks of the Church, with focusing on the Holiness 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 The Roman Catechism, the Scriptures, Saints, Doctors, and Popes on what exactly it means to say: 2b. The Catholic Church Must be Holy
Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a nine-minute for the feast of St. James the Greater by Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI. Father shares how the Church places the Apostles on a higher level among the saints, for Christ set them to sit on twelve thrones to judge the twelve tribes of Israel, yet they also suffered from what we suffer from: a fallen human nature.
In fact, St. James and his brother St. John were even so bold as to go to Jesus to ask to sit on His right hand and left. It was St. James to whom Our Lady appeared at the Pilar and asked him to return to Jerusalem. He was the first to be martyred and in Heaven when Mary ascended into Heaven. His tomb became a major pilgrimage shrine in Spain because of so many miracles performed by his intercession as Father reminds us because so few accepted his preaching while he was alive and killed him. We can learn from James loyalty to Our Lord and perseverance, a grace we can all seek in keeping pure our souls through the true Faith as Father explains in his sermon on
St. James the Greater
You can't keep a good saint down! While today we celebrate the Double of the Second Class Feast of Saint James the Greater, lost in the shuffle is poor Saint Christopher whom the Vatican 2 Modernists didn't particularly take a hankering to and, with the feeble excuse that "there wasn't enough historical proof of his existence", eliminated him from the liturgical calendar just as he did dear Saint Philomena. In a way they weren't offended. After all, what else would you expect from impostors intent on destroying the holy faith? In an effort to keep St. Christopher visible for Catholics and to show his connection with St. James, we present here a brief summation of his virtues by the renowned Abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger from The Liturgical Year The Christ-Bearer
Anne (Hebrew, Hannah, grace; also spelled Ann, Anne, Anna) is the traditional name of the mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Saint Anne. All our information concerning the names and lives of Sts. Joachim and Anne, the parents of the Blessed Virgin Mary, is derived from apocryphal literature, Though the earliest form of the latter, on which directly or indirectly the other two seem to be based, goes back to about A.D. 150, we can hardly accept as beyond doubt its various statements on its sole authority.
In the Orient the Protoevangelium had great authority and portions of it were read on the feasts of Mary by the Greeks, Syrians, Copts, and Arabians. In the Occident, however, it was rejected by the Fathers of the Church until its contents were incorporated by Jacobus de Voragine in his "Golden Legend" in the thirteenth century. From that time on the story of St. Anne spread over the West and was amply developed, until St. Anne became one of the most popular saints also of the Latin Church.
The Protoevangelium gives the following account: In Nazareth there lived a rich and pious couple, Joachim and Hannah. They were childless. When on a feast day Joachim presented himself to offer sacrifice in the temple, he was repulsed by a certain Ruben, under the pretext that men without offspring were unworthy to be admitted. Whereupon Joachim, bowed down with grief, did not return home, but went into the mountains to make his plaint to God in solitude. Also Hannah (Anne), having learned the reason of the prolonged absence of her husband, cried to the Lord to take away from her the curse of sterility, promising to dedicate her child to the service of God.
Their prayers were heard; an angel came to Hannah and said: "Hannah, the Lord has looked upon thy tears; thou shalt conceive and give birth and the fruit of thy womb shall be blessed by all the world". The angel made the same promise to Joachim, who returned to his wife. Anne gave birth to a daughter
John Gregory takes a break from polemics to provide an inspiring piece on Saint Anne in a similar style to his meditations on the Mysteries of the holy Rosary. There is much to contemplate on the intricate and intimate role good Saint Anne played in bringing forth the Immaculate Conception. He calls on the words of His Holiness Pope Pius XI in his encyclical Casti Conubii and the insight of the noted liturgian and Benedictine abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger in illustrating that through the cooperation with God and her holy husband Saint Joachim, she nourished the only person ever conceived without sin for a purpose she did not know except for her love of God and the child she carried. Staying true to her mission she dedicated and raised the young child Mary to prepare her for the greatest story ever told: the Redemption of mankind. John provides the contemplation in
The Mother of the Mother of God
In honor of the Mother of the Mother of God we bring you an excerpt provided by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey from a concerned Catholic mother who realizes her mission in life is to do all in her power to get her offspring to Heaven. No greater love does a mother have than to give her life for her children and most mothers do, but too often the world trumps the maternal wisdom learned at a mother's knee, those times when children learned to pray, to turn to Jesus and His Immaculate Mother and to learn their Baltimore catechism, to understand the concept of First and Last Things, so that they could pass on the holy Faith to their children. Today, that progression is, if you will, a lost art, for satan has so oversaturated minds and hearts, that to adhere to the solid principles taught in their youth is today a conflict with their daily life if they have succumbed to the world, the flesh and the devil. Thanks to Vatican II and the failure of the Church to be the guardian of souls, too many children have and therein the following letter. A Heartfelt Letter from a Concerned Catholic Mom
While today is not Mother's Day, it could very well be. At the least it should be "Grandmother's Day" because it is the feast of the greatest grandmother who ever lived, the grandmother of none other than the Son of God Himself. Yes, we are referring to good Saint Anne. The late Denise Michele submitted this article several years ago and it's worth re-running on this feast. Before cancer claimed Denise's life, she worked tirelessly in promoting mothering and mentoring mothers, herself a mother of a large family struggling over being forced into a lifestyle against everything she held dear, especially the importance of motherhood and their greatest gift: bearing children. This is a lesson lost on today's selfish, instant-gratification generation who have forgotten that the rewards of motherhood are 'rolled over' in Heaven forever. Why? Because mothers work in cooperation with God to populate Heaven, and this would never have been possible without the fiat of
Good Saint Anne, Patroness of Mothers
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 Four, Be not deceived
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 July last year in which he explains the dangerous deceit of the Luminous Mysteries. John Paul 2 had a purpose and his deceit of being "Mary's pope" was the biggest sham of all, and enabled him to foist on the clueless faithful the Masonic set of mysteries that totally demean the purpose of the holy Rosary, but it was pure modernistic phenagling to further undermine Catholicism as all will see in The Illuminati Mysteries
St. Nazarius was baptized by Pope Linus at Rome; in his turn he baptized the youthful St. Celsus. They were both beheaded at Milan about the year 368. Their bodies, buried in a garden outside the city, were found by St. Ambrose in 395. The body of St. Nazarius appeared as if it had just been beheaded. It was placed by St. Ambrose in the Basilica Romana. The body of the boy St. Celsus was found in another part of the garden, but was not removed. However, a basilica was later built in his honor. Pope St. Victor, the thirteenth in order from St. Peter, is famous in the ...More
Saint Martha is mentioned by name only in Luke 10:38-42; and John 11: 12, The Aramaic form occurs in a Nabataean inscription found at Puteoli, and now in the Naples Museum; it is dated A.D. 5 (Corpus Inscr. Semit., 158); also in a Palmyrene inscription, where the Greek translation has the form Marthein, A.D. 179.
The likeness between the pictures of Martha presented by St. Luke and St. John is very remarkable. The familiar intercourse between our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the humble family which St. Luke depicts is dwelt on by St. John when he tells us that "Jesus loved Martha, and her sister Mary, and Lazarus" (11:5). Again the picture of Martha's anxiety (John 11:20-21, 39) accords with the picture of her who was "busy about much serving" (Luke 10:40); so also in John 12:2: "They made Him a supper there: and Martha served." But St. John has given us a glimpse of the other and deeper side of her character when he depicts her growing faith in Christ's Divinity (11:20-27), a faith which was the occasion of the words: "I am the resurrection and the life." The Evangelist has beautifully indicated the change that came over Martha after that interview: "When she had said these things, she went and called her sister Mary secretly, saying: The Master is come, and calleth for thee." ...More
Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you an eight-minute sermon given six years ago on this feast by Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great in Cincinatti, Ohio. His Excellency tells about St. Anthony of Padua's great devotion to St. Martha and that man cannot live without bread and she is the essense of the active vs. the contemplative of her sister St. Mary. She is depicted in art as holding the asperges in sprinkling holy water as a sacramental driving out the dragon which represents the devil as she clings to the Word of God of which she heard our Lord speak so often during his visits to their home. She comes to us at each funeral as a reminder of Christ's question to her if she believes in eternal life and her testimony to Him. The Bishop then gives a special blessing for this feast in concluding his sermon on Saint Martha
On this feast of St. Martha, we bring you a lesson penned by the late dearly departed Cyndi Cain, which she wrote seven years ago. She imparted some poignant thoughts. Lost today is the honest work ethic that enabled the apostles and succeeding missionaries to persevere in saving souls. No longer is hard work the desired goal; no longer are the rewards of sweat and tears on our hands and knees paying off because the payoff today is to make things as easy as possible. Lazy is the word and laziness breeds apathy and apathy breeds lukewarmness, and lukewarmness prompts the Lord to regurgitate those who embrace such out of His mouth. Cyndi wanted all to take a cue from the trendsetter for hardwork in our Lord's time - St. Martha - and learn from her example in serving others while at the same time realizing those others must return the favors by participating in God's plans and mission to save souls. They can do so by contributing either their time, talents or treasures. To skimp on these will not bode well when God tabulates the final tallies. We have the Holy Ghost to guide us. Why aren't we tuning in to the greatest technology available: listening and speaking to God!?! Cyndi, whose mission on earth is completed, reminded us that for rest of us There is Work to be Done
We urge you to click the Rosary banner above for the Fifth 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 fifth Saturday of the Fifteen we focus on the gift of wisdom which the Holy Family exhibited in Jesus returning home obediently after His Our Lady and His foster-father St. Joseph discovered Him preaching in the temple.

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:

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

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.

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.
