After 23 years, of Michael Cain, the founder of The Daily Catholic, who died this past October 11th - May he rest in peace - working, we have quite an arsenal of graphics to draw from for each feast and season! And this one: "Rome has abandoned God..." is very fitting as the impostor, "Pope Francis" is taking pot shots at Our sacred Catholic beliefs at every opportunity - heck! even without an opportunity, he is bound and determined to break every last one - leaving "No stone unturned" as Saint Matthew writes in his epistle 24. And through all these absolutely joyous feasts we are celebrating since the Immaculate Conception on December 8 with Christmas, the Circumcision, the Holy Innocents, the Holy Name of Jesus and now the Epiphany and it doesn't stop there as we will soon be celebrating the Holy Family and Unity Week. After November's study of Indulgences under the direction of Father F X Schouppe, SJ, and all Holy Mother Church teaches us to guide us safely to heaven, we are excellently equipped to "fight the good fight" against oh so many heresies, which have seemingly hopelessly taken root in our various cultures around the world, as Saint Paul models for us, along with Pope Saint Hyginus, Martyr, Bishops Saints Appolinaris and William, and Saint Lucian, Martyr, all of whom we commemorate this week and who all fought against heresies. I am awestruck by the ingenuity of the science of the saints for indulgences, since, if we aim to never miss a chance at giving relief to the Holy Souls in purgatory, then just satisfying the requirements to qualify for indulgences will keep us practicing our faith as we ought. Keeps us in a state of grace with Communion every 8 days (at least), confession every 17 days (at most), praying for the intentions of Holy Mother Church (in leau of an absentee Pope) and frequent visits to the Most Blessed Sacrament in the Tabernacle. More than ever, we need to be praying Rosaries and Novenas, pleading for epiphanies for those who have usurped the Catholic buildings and name - not the Church (Faith) though, which no-one can ever take from Us. The motion picture of the demolition of the name and buildings, along with the average Joe's concept of what true Catholicism is, albeit in the forties with the Charlie Chaplins of Hollywood has speeded up to a downright dizzying pace, what with the Homosexual Network in the Seminaries, the ongoing obvious cover-ups by nearly all "Bishops" and Cardinals", especially those "Francis" has promoted and brought into his inner circle of advisors and leading Vatican appointments, and the ludicrous twisting of Scripture to condemn the likes of Vigano and raise himself up in the eyes of the sleeping Novus Ordites as an innocent victim being persecuted by devils. The closing of cloistered monasteries and the most traditional orders will soon bite Bergoglio where he's not looking, since it is precisely prayer that is allowing Our Blessed Mother to hold back the arm of her Son's wrath! He is putting those sisters in the same predicament as Mother Saint Michel, the Ursaline nun who promised to honor Our Lady under the name of Prompt Succor, if she obtained a transfer to New Orleans from the Pope so she could escape the persecutions in France and Spain. Let's remember them when we begin our novena in honor of Her on January 7 asking them for the Grace of admitting Sede Vacante. I still do think this special meeting in Rome to address, what? the abuse accountability? Not the homosexualization of all the seminaries in the US? has been put off to February because either Bergoglio knows he will be retired by then or have firmed up some changes that will make the issue moot - like married priests or ONLY female priests.
But the real ones we need to pray have epiphanies are the millions of Novus Ordoites that THINK they are Catholic and are running themselves ragged 24/7 trying desparately to rationalize why their "Pope" is constantly blaspheming heaven and Holy Mother Church, instead of adapting the only logical position of Sede Vacante, precisely because they BELIEVE there is no salvation outside the Catholic Church! Most through no fault of their own because their parents' generation dropped the ball on guarding their Faith from heresies that have since the time of the Apostles been a constant challenge, in allowing the 2nd Vatican Council to get away with murder - literally - the murder of souls by way of "being willing to believe lies", as we were warned in 2 Thessalonians 2 and by Saint Francis of Assisi would lead us to the "operation of error" which is all that came of that prophesied Robber Council by those who have 'taken out of the way" the true Pope, who "restrains" the "mystery of iniquity" from the Church. So many souls have been caught in the nets of the Adversary and now that 60 years has passed since the smoke entered the Vatican, those who call themselves Catholics wouldn't recognize REAL Catholicism if it hit them over the head since they don't even understand it is NOT POSSIBLE for the Church to defect and it is REQUIRED that the faithful are fully obedient to the Pope! (Hear Father Brendan Mary Hughes' 2018 Fatima Conference talk The Papacy and Infallibility for an excellent explanation.) During my travels in December up to now through the Raccolta, I discovered a prayer to Saint Peter - Blessed Holder of the Heavenly Keys, that is a wonderful weapon prayed as a Novena for the enemies of the Church and conversion of the Novus Ordoites. It is a very beautiful prayer!
Every Saturday mornings you're invited to call 319-527-2928 393-323# 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.
But, we all know the most effective weapon of all, is the one given to Saint Dominic by Our Beloved Blessed Mother Mary, Ever Virgin, with the promise the Immaculate Heart will Triumph! There is a war going on in the heavens and on earth! Can you hear the clinking of the Angels' swords? The ever-growing rate of reparation needed for the ever-increasing atrocities, blashemies and offenses commited against the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will require knee pads and special protective gear as we are now doing marathons to keep up with it! Just take a look at the articles above in the news section and you can't deny the need. Pope Pius X was correct when he said the Dogma of Immaculate Conception itself will be a great crusher of the serpents head:
"But let people believe and confess that the Virgin Mary has been from the first moment of her conception preserved from all stain; and it is straightway necessary that they should admit both original sin and the rehabilitation of the human race by Jesus Christ, the Gospel, and the Church and the law of suffering. By virtue of this Rationalism and Materialism is torn up by the roots and destroyed, and there remains to Christian wisdom the glory of having to guard and protect the truth. It is moreover a vice common to the enemies of the faith of our time especially that they repudiate and proclaim the necessity of repudiating all respect and obedience for the authority of the Church, and even of any human power, in the idea that it will thus be more easy to make an end of faith. Here we have the origin of Anarchism, than which nothing is more pernicious and pestilent to the order of things whether natural or supernatural. Now this plague, which is equally fatal to society at large and to Christianity, finds its ruin in the dogma of the Immaculate Conception by the obligation which it imposes of recognizing in the Church a power before which not only has the will to bow, but the intelligence to subject itself. It is from a subjection of the reason of this sort that Christian people sing thus the praise of the Mother of God: "Thou art all fair, O Mary, and the stain of original sin is not in thee." (Mass of Immac. Concep.) And thus once again is justified what the Church attributes to this august Virgin that she has exterminated all heresies in the world." AD DIEM ILLUM LAETISSIMUM: ENCYCLICAL OF POPE PIUS X ON THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION
- it has "Francis" doing cartwheels to try to keep all the religions of the world from changing their minds about this whole ecumenical shennanigans - if it means they have to believe She was conceived without sin! Never mind a Perpetual Virgin, Queen of Heaven and Earth, ONLY Mediatrix of all Graces and predestined as the "Woman" in Genesis, the seeds of whom are in emnity with the followers of Satan. The more people admit Sede Vacante, the more reparation we can do - our strength will be in numbers and Holy Mother Church membership will increase and all the apostate religions will dwindle down to nothing and the Kingship of Christ will be restored. Let us remember Lepanto and PRAY!

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. Just click the button below or 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. 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:

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
Live Mass Webcasts at Saint Gertrude the Great on Sundays at 7:30, 9:00, 11:30 AM and 5:45 PM, as well as on school days at 11:20AM. Other Masses and services are webcast as noted in the Bulletin.

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."

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.

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.

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,
et insidias diaboli esto praesidium.
Imperet illi Deus,
Princeps militiae caelestis,
Satanam aliosque spiritus malignos,
qui ad perditionem animarum
pervagantur in mundo,
in infernum detrude. Amen.
