        As we fuel up for 2019 we pray more will gain strength from the unchangeable, perfect prayer offered daily on traditional Catholic altars - what the late great Fr. Frederick Faber called "the most beautiful thing this side of Heaven" - the Apostolic and Canonical Propitiatory Sacrifice of the Traditional Latin Mass, where you can follow the Ordinary of the Mass and follow the liturgy with each Daily Proper in Latin and English, as well as learn more about the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in various videos on the Meaning of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

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

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

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

         As much as we hate to beg, we have no choice. We're back to at least doing weekly editions but donations have been way down and do not afford us the luxury of returning to daily publishing, which is ashame since it is called the DAILY Catholic. If you have benefited in anyway from what we have published, we humbly ask your help to keep this publication on line. We know that so many of our readers are unable to assist at a true traditional Latin Mass because of where they live and use the daily liturgy we publish to gain the efficacious graces possible through their prayers at home. We remain the only publication in the world to provide such and are grateful to God that we can provide such nourishment for souls. If you have not donated before, isn't it only right and proper to donate now? Whatever you can afford will be greatly appreciated.

Whatever you would have contributed toward a bloated political campaigns or thrown away in the conciliar collection plates that only goes to covering up the sins of its presbyters and false primates while destroying all semblence of Catholicism, why not earmark it for SANCTUS/DailyCatholic? After all, shouldn't we all take St. Paul's strong counsel in 2 Thessalonians 2: 14 to heart and "stand firm, and hold the traditions which you have learned"?

    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:

    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:

    An excellent book to decipher the difference between the True Church and the CONciLIAR church of Vatican 2 is provided by Fathers Dominic and Francisco Radecki, CMRI. See Tumultuous Times

    by Mario Derksen

    Griff Ruby, author of The Resurrection of the Roman Catholic Church, has just published two volumes on the existence of Sedevacantism in our times. (click on each book to where you can procure them) that quite readily refute anything the anti-sedevacantists can muster.


    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.

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

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

    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 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.

    Behold the handmaid of the Lord. Be it done unto me according to Thy word.

    Let us pray.
    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.

    Angelus Domini nuntiavit Mariae. Et concepit de Spiritu Sancto.

    Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructis ventris tui, Jesus.
    Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.

    Ecce ancilla Domini. Fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum.

    Ave Maria...

    Et Verbum caro factum est. Et habitavit in nobis.
    Ave Maria...

    Ora pro nobis, sancta Dei Genitrix. Ut digni efficiamur promissionibus Christi.


    Gratiam tuam, quaesumus Domine, mentibus nostris infunde: ut qui, Angelo nuntiante, Christi Filii tui incarnationem cognovimus, per passionem ejus et crucem ad resurrectionis gloriam perducamur. Per eumdem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.


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

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

    Every Saturday mornings you're invited to call 319-527-2928 and join host Dave Fuire in praying the five mysteries of the holy Rosary at 1 p.m. EST, Noon CST, 11 a.m. MST, and 10 a.m. PST in reparation for the offenses against the Immaculate Heart of Mary. It is what Our Lady asked at Fatima.

    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 the Archangel

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

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

    When One Cannot physically Assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    For those who cannot be present for 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
