    Throughout the month of October we are endeavoring to bring you a sermon daily on the Holy Rosary. On certain feast days the sermon for that day may supersede a sermon on the Blessed Virgin Mary's holy psalter. Also, you'll note the signature image above just left of the masthead encompasses the time of this edition, beginning with the feast of the Holy Guardian Angels on October 2 and all through the month we pray the special Prayer to St. Joseph you see above, following the daily Rosary, which just happens to be the month of the Most Holy Rosary. The image incorporates not only St. Joseph and Our Lady, but the Child Jesus Who, as Our Lord and Savior Jesus, is the King of kings, Whose solemnity we always celebrate on the last Sunday of October. Angels, who are members of the Church Triumphant, are aplenty along with what could be considered the Church Militant with St. Peter's Basilica since the chaste spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary and foster father of Jesus is the Universal Patron of the Church.

       The First Week is truly full of feasts to begin the month. First of all, the signature image above left of the masthead and also here encompasses the time of this edition, beginning with the feast of the Holy Guardian Angels on October 2 and all through the month we pray the special Prayer to St. Joseph following the daily Rosary, which just happens to be the month of the Most Holy Rosary. The image incorporates not only St. Joseph and Our Lady, but the King of kings, Our Lord and Savior Jesus as the Child Jesus. Angels are aplenty along with what could be considered the Church Militant with St. Peter's Basilica for Joseph is the Universal Patron of the Church. And that's just one image. The fact is this edition is graced with notable saints and feasts. From St. Michael and St. Jerome to St. Therese of Lisieux and St. Francis of Assisi on the 29th and 30th to the 3rd and 4th when we celebrate First Friday and Saturday of October with the Double Major Feast of the Holy Guardian Angels on Wednesday, October 2. And that's just the first week!

        The Second Week packs a wallop full of memories, beginning on the 7th with the Double of the Second Class Feast of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, followed immediately by the holy visionary St. Bridget of Sweden and on the 9th with the 58th Anniversary of the death of the last true Roman Catholic Pope, His Holiness of happy memory Pope Pius XII. On the 11th we celebrate and commiserate. Then we honor the Mother of God Theotokos for another Double of the Second Class Feast of the Divine Maternity. Sadly, on that same day we bemoan the 54th anniversary of the start of the Second Vatican Council, called by the antipope John 23, which was the portal for the Great Apostasy to be ushered in to the tragedy of souls that we have today.

    It only grows worse under the sixth antipope in succession Francis aka Mr. Jorge Bergoglio, who doesn't even hide the fact he's a heretic and an apostate any more. That's how bold the modernists have become.

       They'd all do well to heed Our Lady's message at Fatima that they will not win, for when it's all said and done, Mary's Immaculate Heart will triumph as she promised 99 years ago as in this Third Week we observe Our Lady of Fatima on the 13th, commemorating the holy English king St. Edward the Confessor, followed on the 15th when we honor that feisty reformer of orthodoxy St. Teresa of Avila. The week offers us a powerful tool to help expedite that triumph when we celebrate on the 17th the feast of the holy visionary St. Margaret Mary Alacoque to whom Jesus imparted the Devotions to His Most Sacred Heart and which is carried out, not only on the First Fridays of each month, but in the home with the Consecration & Enthronement in the Home. The next day, we celebrate the feast of St. Luke the Evangelist who recorded more on the Mother of God and the Holy Family than any of the other evangelists. His feast is followed on the 19th by the holy confessor, St. Peter of Alcantara.

       The Fourth Week is full of Ferial Days with Thursday the 24th being the feast of St. Raphael the Archangel who is the healing angel and, if this world ever needed healing now is the time when satan roams around like a roaring lion, seeking whomever he can devour. It would seem like a hopeless situation, but we have the feast of Sts. Simon and Jude next Monday the 28th for St. Jude is renowned as the Patron Saint of hopeless cases.

       The Fifth Week opens with the Solemnity of Christ the King always held on the last Sunday of October. Jesus is our Sovereign King to Whom we owe all allegiance first and foremost. After the Feria commemorating our beloved St. Alphonsus Liquori, we move into November with the Solemnity of All Saints in honoring the Church Triumphant followed immediately by All Souls Day in which we focus exclusively on the Church Suffering who are the holy souls in Purgatory. It is our duty here on earth as members of the Church Militant in the great Communion of Saints to pray for the poor souls because they can't help themselves while stuck in Purgatory,but can when they get to Heaven. They won't forget us. Will we forget them? We complete the first week of November with First Friday on All Saints Day followed by the First Saturday on All Souls Day.

To help us in deciding we need only rely on God's right-hand man St. Michael the Archangel whose Double of the First Class Feast we celebrate on Sunday for his Dedication. We call on the protection of Our Lady and the heavenly winged knight - he who is like God, quis ut Deus to protect us as the times grow darker from sin engulfing the world in every venue of life, snuffing out whatever sanctifying grace is available in the few true tabernacles around the world. Thanks to the apostate Giovanni Montin aka Paul 6, he abolished the powerful prayer below that His Holiness Pope Leo XIII composed after given a vision from Heaven of God and St. Michael negotiating with the Archangel's equal - the fallen angel Lucifer, aka satan, devil, beelsebub - evil of the highest degree. That prayer, part of the Leonine Prayers recited after every Low Mass in traditional chapels today was taken away from conciliar Catholics and with it, the protection afforded by God's most powerful right-hand guardian. We have seen the tragic results of this over the past 50 plus years, and these next forty days are an ideal opportunity to put our knees where our mouth is and pray and fast, knowing we have the head of God's mightiest army behind us. How can we lose? But we need to do our part that begins with staying in the state of sanctifying grace and uniting with the Blessed Virgin Mary by devoutly praying her holy Rosary as often as our states in life permit, hopefully daily, in order to fend off the demons that prowl throughout the world, seeking the ruin of souls.

Speaking of St. Michael, the Annual Fatima Conference will be held once again at Mount St. Michael's in Spokane this year from October 9-13 with this year's theme "Behold Thy Mother". The keynote speaker this year is Dr. Peter E. Chojnowski, who has taken the lead in forensic research on the Impostor, Sister Lucy. Also, October 8 is the feast of the holy mystic St. Bridget of Sweden whose revelations and prophesies of which we will feature each day throughout October beginning with this Wednesday. Finally, we are pleased to bring you inspirational articles for six out of the seven feasts this week by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey from his uncompromising site Christ or chaos, so appropriately named for over two decades for we are truly in that time of chaos foretold in public and private revelation. I encourage you to read his articles that will document exactly what the problems are as does I guarantee it.

    We begin a week of well-known saints and feasts with St. Michael on Sunday as noted above, then the holy Doctor of the Church on Monday St. Jerome who compiled all the scriptures into one, calling it the Bible four centuries after Christ. I ask all Protestants to please take note of the timeline. Catholics know that nothing new has been revealed once St. John finished his work on the Isle of Patmos. You might have heard of it. It's called the Book of the Apocalypse, which, thanks to the Revolution is now widely known as Revelation, more of the changes wrought by those abdicating the true faith for what they thought was best for man, not God. That has translated into over 33,000 different sects today with only one of them being the Church Christ built upon the Rock of Peter. Just as King Wencelaus brought the Faith to Bohemia, so also the holy Bishop St. Remigius brought the true faith to France in converting King Clovis earning France the title as "first daughter of the Church". And speaking of France, one of the most beloved of French saints is St. Therese of Lisieux, the Little Flower, whose feast we celebrate on Thursday followed by the feast of one of the most loved saints, dear St. Francis of Assisi. And, this week we celebrate the feast of the Holy Guardian Angels on Wednesday. Trust always in your guardian angel and pray to them as often as you can.

Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom God's love commits me here.
Ever this day be at my side,
to light, to guard, to rule, and guide.
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake,
I pray the Lord, my soul to take. Amen.
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.

   This is Rosary Week. The last 50 plus days we've been building towards this week, having just concluded the 56 installments of "The Secret of the Rosary." Throughout October we will be bringing you a daily sermon tying in with Our Lady and the Holy Rosary courtesy of If ever we've needed Our Lady's help through storming Heaven with Rosaries, it is now. With the Islamic threat, with the fear of war not only in the mideast, but on our borders and, actually, everywhere, and with the increase in persecution of believers in the Holy Trinity, and especially Traditional Catholics being denigrated by the Marxist Argentinian who heads the false CONciLIAR church, well, the answer is to do as St. Paul advises in 2 Thessalonians 2: 14 and stay with the traditions we have learned. One of those traditions bestowed by Heaven 800 years ago is Mary's holy psalter and, as proven through the annals of Church history, has been one of the most powerful weapons we could ever have. The problem is we're not using our full arsenal that Heaven has given us. The Mother of God urged us to pray the Rosary at Fatima. We know from St. Louis de Montfort the power of the Rosary. We know from Lepanto how praying the Rosary can overcome all odds, yet how many are using this simple, effective weapon that is more powerful than any bomb, gun, cannon, axe, machete, flamethrower, bow-and-arrow, sword, slingshot, or you name it. The fact is no human weapon is more effective than the Rosary. And you can carry it anywhere and use it anytime. Any questions? Then take up thy Rosary and fire away.

    We remind you of the daily Prayer to Saint Joseph during October. He served as the chaste earthly spouse to the Blessed Mother whose Divine Maternity we celebrate at the end of this week for Mary is truly Theotokos. This week we also commemorate the feast of St. Bridget of Sweden on Wednesday and will continue to bring you each day a chapter from Book Seven of her magnificent tome titled Revelations and Prophesies Imparted to St. Bridget. Each day's lesson is a short meditative lesson from Our Lord, Our Lady or an angel to comtemplate on and increase our own resolution towards holiness.

    Thursday this week marks the 61st Anniversary of the death of the last true Roman Catholic Sovereign Pontiff His Holiness Pope Pius XII. Since then we continue to be in an interminable interregnum between the election of a true Pope and from the looks of it, that isn't going to change much in the near future as the false 'popes' have abandoned the true Church through heresy and apostasy just as the Sacred Scriptures, Our Lady, and the saints have foretold. The CONciLIAR church of Vatican 2 instituted by heretic Cardinal Angelo Roncalli (aka John 23) has continued through the current potentate Mr. Jorge Bergoglio. It just seems with every election of an invalid conclave, they only get worse. But then should we be surprised. Jesus said as much in St. Matthew 7: 15-20. And we can more readily identify what the harlot of Babylon is in chapters 17 and 18 of the Book of the Apocalypse. So that should alert all those in the Recognize-and-Resist camp as well as those trapped in the Novus Ordo to abandon that sinking satanic ship before it's too late. Is there a way for that to happen? Yes, by storming Heaven with Rosaries!

   It's been 2 years since 100th Anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions. As we move beyond it, we are reminded all the more of the dismal failure to obey the Blessed Virgin Mary's request imparted to three innocent Portugal peasant children to alert the Church of the dangers ahead and how to stave off this disaster. Her Rosary was the chief answer and only a handful remain true to that today. In fact, the Rosary is the one link to CONciLIAR catholics that gives us hope they will be given the grace to truly see they are in a no-win situation in the CONciLIAR church. The 13th of October is the liturgical feast of the holy king Edward the Confessor who subjected himself and his subjects to the King of kings in all things. Several centuries later, His Holiness Pope St. Pius V called upon the faithful to also submit to Christ the King and to His holy Mother Mary's most powerful weapon to stop the infidel Turks from imposing Muslim Sharia Law by a victory over Don Juan of Austria's undersized Christian armada in the Bay of Lepanto, Heaven can work miracles. So also today with the Islamic threat so paramount in building a global caliphate and slaughtering Christians, we again must turn to Our Lady and call upon all Heaven's forces by praying our Rosaries. We can see Our Lady's role and the power of the Rosary in St. Pius V's Apostolic Constitution Consueverunt Romani

    It all began three centuries ago when Jesus chose a devout nun to provide future generations with a divine promise if we faithfully follow the devotions to His Most Sacred Heart. He explained to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque the parameters of the Twelve Promises of the Sacred Heart and instructed her how to pray during Holy Hour. In this day and age it is so vital to seek out a true priest to have your home enthroned to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and consecrated to the Immaculate Heart for with the true Church in the catacombs today, it is not like you can run down to the corner church and visit the Blessed Sacrament as one could always do back before Vatican 2. That is why in these times it is important to have the home blessed so it can be for your family a special sanctuary against the world, the flesh and the devil. St. Margaret's feast is the third in a string of three straight holy women beginning with the feast of St. Teresa of Avila, who was known as a no-nonsense reformer and stickler on the constituted evangelic traditions and stood up to priests, bishops and, yes, even popes. . Her feast is followed by the holy St. Hedwig who had several holy brothers and sisters as well. We remind you of the daily Prayer to Saint Joseph during October. He served as the chaste earthly spouse to the Blessed Mother who was so close to St. Luke the Evangelist and whose feast we celebrate on Friday. Also, we continue with bringing you each day a chapter from Book Seven of the magnificent tome Revelations and Prophesies Imparted to St. Bridget. Each day's lesson is a short meditative lesson from Our Lord, Our Lady or an angel to comtemplate on and increase our own resolution towards holiness. Our founder recounted, "My dearly departed bride Cyndi immersed herself in these lessons over the last few years and we shared how the blueprint is so obvious in how to live as a good Catholic."

   Sunday, October 19, 2014 was truly BLACK SUNDAY for true Catholics everywhere because one of the most reprobate apostates in the history of the Church was BEAT-IF-FRIED (our coined word for the chances of Giovanni Montini having no chance for he could very well be beat and fried in the hellfires for his aggressions against God and His holy Church) by the current usurper who invalidly occupies the throne of Peter - one Mr. Jorge Bergoglio whose words and actions in the last 4 1/2 years have proven he is a disciple of the devil. That he dared go forward with the unbelievable hubris to elevate the known sinister sodomite Paul the Sick is merely evidence for "he that readeth let him understand" this is part of the fulfillment of Chapters 17 and 18 of the Book of the Apocalypse for the CONciLIAR church is the "whore of Babylon" as Unfrancis attempts to finish what Angelo Roncalli started, proving it's only too evident that...

   Can it get any worse? Sadly, tragically for the welfare of souls, yes. Because so many sheeple will believe whatever they're told because they truly do not KNOW their Faith and because of that they have or will lose their Faith. Never was this more apparent than these past two weeks (in 2014) at Mr. Bergoglio's Mad-Hatter Tea Party he called the "Synod of the Family", but should rightfully be called the SIN-ODD because what these CONciLIAR potentates are doing is relaxing, yes altering Catholic doctrine and truth. As has been the case with these heretics, after they float a trial balloon and it backfires, there's always damage control lest they be totally exposed for the Modernist apostates they are. The documents of Vatican 2 are an excellent example of this subterfuge through ambiguity. Think Bill Clinton's now famous remark, "It depend on what the meaning of 'is' is." This farce in Rome was capped on Sunday, October 19th, 2014 with the greatest blasphemy and scandal in the history of the church - the next to last step towards declaring one a saint. Something one of the most reprobate apostates is not, for he was the worst to ever to occupy the throne of Peter, at least up until UNfrancis who could very well (since he's already on his way) surpass the evil of his predecessors. Since the time our founder wrote these words, we know this apostate has been canonized and we also are on our way to yet another SIN-ODD, the Pan-Amazon Synod, after which, we are told, the Church will be unrecognizable. It is the counterfeit "Church" that will be unrecognizable, since the Catholic Faith is unchanging and uneffected, at this point, by what they do to the Vatican II "Church". Albeit, the semi-trads are panicking, the remnant in the pre-Vatican Church are not at all surprised as we've been watching this slow but sure destruction of the faith since 1958. For us, it is encouraging to see the counterfeit "Church" hang itself. There may be hope that they give up the name, so people will no longer be duped to believe the counterfeit is the real Catholic Church. In all seriousness, this is a bitter gift for the semi-trads - a gift because it is getting beyond obvious that their church is no longer Catholic. You will have to seriously study the Sede Vacante position and pray as many Rosaries a day to come to terms with the fact that it is the only tenable position within the Teachings of the Church up to 1958.

    Be that as it may, to even think Giovanni Montini reached Purgatory is a stretch. Holy? No way, Jorge! But such is the factory of saints that another heretic Karol Wojtyla established to assure his own CONization. Yet, countless uninformed catholics will regard him as "Blessed" Paul 6 after Sunday, whereas we remember him as Paul the Sick who had no respect for Catholic truth and tradition, much is the same manner as the current occupant who is the epitomé of all his CONciLIAR predecessors. God help us!

   To commiserate this tragic occasion, we provide this week several articles proving this man can never be considered holy. We begin with a three-part series first published on these pages twelve years ago by Mario Derksen before he was a sedevacantist as well as fellow sede John Gregory, who provides his tenth installment on Monsignor Joseph Clifford Fenton's work "The Catholic Church and Salvation" in which he employs His Holiness Pope Pius XII's encyclical Humani Generis to refute not only Feeneyites, but those ecumaniacs who met in Rome this past two weeks to plot the total destruction of Catholicism. The next day we provide that very encyclical. We end the week with a compendium of Paul the Sick's heresies where you can see for yourself we're not whistling Dixie when we say he was a blatant heretic, reprobate apostate, and what he did was ugly as sin. Finally we also provide a link to the book above by the late traditional theologian Father Luigi Villa who, at the time, was able to delay Montini's beatification, but he didn't count on the end run by Bergoglio and his fellow Modernist apostates. Read it and weep: Paul VI...Beatified?

    We continue with the Prophesies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden with chapters 21 through 27 of Book Seven for your edification. This week is devoid of well-known saints except for Saint Raphael the Archangel whose feast we celebrate on Friday, and how timely since he is known as the healer and both body and soul need to be healed in our time when Ebola, Enterovirus, Staph Infections, and several other diseases are fast reaching pandemic levels and flu season is just beginning. But that's for the body. For the soul needs much more healing since, to the world, it looks like the "Catholic" Church is ready to relax sin in order not to offend man, while greatly offending God so much so that Our Blessed Mother may not be able to stay His hand this time. We know those who occupy Rome are not Catholic, but the devil has blinded the rest. That is why we must pray for souls We remind you of the daily Prayer to Saint Joseph during October.

   This last week of October is bookended by two of the most celebratory Double of the First Class Feasts in the Church's liturgical year outside of the Nativity of Jesus Christ and His glorious Resurrection. The last Sunday of October has been decreed as Christ the King Sunday when we declare to the world Our Lord and Savior as our Sovereign King and reconsecrate ourselves once more by honoring Him as such with the Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. We provide below the signature encyclical by Pope Pius XI that emphasizes the importance of this feast in Quas Primas. On Friday and Saturday we not only have the First Friday and First Saturday of November but also honor the Church Triumphant with the Solemnity of All Saints and the Church Suffering with the Solemnity of All Souls.

    Also on Saturday we begin the De Profundis Prayers for each day in November. For November 1st and November 2nd the Church established a special plenary indulgence when one fulfills the "Toties Quoties" Prayers. From noon on All Saints Day through midnight of All Souls Day the Catholic faithful, as often as they visit a church to pray for the dead, reciting six times during each visit the Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be for the intentions of Holy Mother Church may gain a plenary indulgence applicable only to the souls in Purgatory, under the usual conditions of making a good Confession within a week before or after, worthily receiving Holy Communion within the week and having the right intention of heart. This is called the Toties Quoties Indulgence and affords an extra day this year of being able to fulfill these special prayers to release souls in Purgatory.

    We finish this month of the Most Holy Rosary with a daily dose of the Prophesies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden with chapters 28 through 31 of Book Seven, then start over with Book One for your edification. The painting here on the right of St. Bridget is so beautifully depicted in the painting by Traditional Catholic artist Michelle R. Maher. To see a larger copyrighted image click on the painting here. Finally, we remind you of the daily Prayer to Saint Joseph during October. Never forget good St. Joseph.

    Finally, changes are in the wind and that begins on November 1 when we not only turn the clocks back for the next day to Standard Time, but we also forge a new chapter for the DailyCatholic. Since the passing of our Founder, Michael Cain, last October 11 (Perpetual light be upon him!), we have spect the year entering much of the content into a database. We realize it has been a repeat of outdated content much of the time, but after January first, all the oldies, but goodies with be automated, being pulled in from the database and files with scripts. After January 1st, the scripts will be refined to coordinate moveable feasts. What this accomplishes is freeing up TIME for the editor to update the overviews relating current events into the Liturgical Year. Already Ruby Griff has submitted a new article and is ready to send more and we are talking with a few new bloggers about the possibility of running columns. We do appreciate your patience through this transition, and hope we can, by the Grace of God, continue to help Catholics KNOW the Faith in order to KEEP the Faith, which is becoming ever more serious a mission, especially with the Amazon Synod coming up this month, which is causing many Novuus Ordo "Catholics" to abandon the faith entirely, instead of returning to the Catholic Church they (or their families) abandoned in 1958. So set your clocks back and look forward to new horizons for this publication!

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

Prayer Before the Crucifix

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

Plenary Indulgence, Condition:
  • Confession
  • Communion
  • One Our Father
  • One Hail Mary

  Grant unto us, Thy servants, we beseech Thee, O Lord God, at all times to enjoy health of soul and body; and by the glorious intercession of Blessed Mary, ever virgin, when freed from the sorrows of this present life, to enter into that joy which hath no end. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

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.

Hail Mary...

And the Word was made flesh. And dwelt among us.

Hail Mary...

Pray for us, O holy Mother of God. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

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.

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.

    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 the Rosary Conference Call with moderator Tom Gillbrough 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 563-999-5045 and join Dave Fuire and possibly a priest in praying the five Mysteries of the holy Rosary 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 66.6! 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 pray for the restoration of the true Roman Catholic Church so the true sacramental grace will flow freely again to save sinners trapped in mortal sin.

Persevering in these times is not easy without the graces afforded only in the Traditional Latin Mass where only true priests can confect the bread and wine into the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ through the transubstantion that takes place at the Consecration. 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." in his decree Apostolicae Curae regarding Anglican Orders, which were much more in tune than any Novus Ordo rite, yet are invalid. All other ways are counterfeit. Chief among the counterfeiters is the Argentine apostate imposter posing as 'pope' in Rome, who, like his predecessors since 1958, are so taken with pleasing man that, through their words and actions have shown their true colors even though many are colorblind when it comes to black and white absolutes. There are so many heresies the Argentinian Marxist has spewed from Laudato Si to Amoris Laetitia to "allowing" the SSPX priests to hear confessions in what he termed a few years back as the 'Year of Mercy'. God have mercy on those who are so duped by this man who is one of many antichrists (cf. 1 John 2: 18) who seeks to relax all doctrines. For proof of all this, we refer you to the excellent documentation by Novus Ordo Watch on Francis. Note this was all foretold by Our Lady at La Salette that "Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the antichrist."

    Thus we must go against the grain, swim against the stream of comfort zones catering to the world, the flesh and the devil. That is why we have a duty - a Catholic responsibility before God - to instruct the ignorant and, believe us, the majority are truly ignorant of what the Catholic Faith teaches. That is why, with so few true priests, it falls on the laity to counsel the doubtful while leaving the true sacraments to the true priests who are spread so thin. The same goes for comforting the sorrowful and there is plenty to be sorrowful for, not only if you read the daily headlines or hear the sound bites, but the void of grace in countless souls since the Holy Ghost long ago lifted protection of the church in Rome today due to the Modernists' infiltration and the Great Apostasy resulting from the Second Vatican Council. Because we march to a different drum and choose the narrow path over the wide path to destruction strewn with wilting roses. That's why we get a lot of rejection. That's why we could tear our hair out in frustration at the lack of conversions except we know that "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible". Therefore, as true Catholics, we must bear wrongs patiently and forgive all injuries. Finally, or should we say, first of all, we cannot sustain this path unless we do as St. Paul says in his letter to the Corinthians, "Such confidence we have through Christ towards God. Not that we are sufficient to think of ourselves, as of ourselves: but our sufficiency is from God". That is why we are strongly encouraged to pray for the living and the dead in fulfilling our part of the Communion of Saints, something lost in today's pick-and-choose politically correct CONciLIAR church where the devil has ensconsed himself as is only too evident.

   In fact, It would seem the gates have shackled what to the world appears as the Catholic Church today, but in essence, is nothing but an evil imposter posing as Catholic while stripping her of all semblance of Catholicity. Yet so many remain blind, deaf and dumb to it all, going along to get along without realizing how wrong they are and how they will have to account for their actions or inactions at their Particular Judgment when it will be too late to make excuses or say 'I didn't know'. That is why we have continued to publish the DailyCatholic and link you to reliable, trusted sites so you can't say you didn't know. Yes, it means leaving the comfort zone you've erroneously grown accustomed to, but it's time all realized that we owe our allegiance not to men who violate the Faith, but to God and all that His holy Catholic Church passed down from Peter through the last true Pope - His Holiness Pope Pius XII of happy memory. Since then the wolves have invaded and engulfed souls in their wicked jaws. The six imposters you see below on the heresies of the false/antipopes of Vatican 2 could never be true popes as previous true popes have decreed as we document below in What the True Church really teaches.

    In restoring the sacred and returning to the truths and traditions, DailyCatholic continues to bring you the full liturgy for the Propers of for each day of the legitimate true Mass of all ages which His Holiness Pope St. Pius V infallibly decreed in Quo Primum cannot be altered and must be said in perpetuity. Then we link reliable sources that will not compromise with the Great Apostasy that has been thrust on the faithful over the past fifty-plus years. Out of all reliable sources verifying the above, NovusOrdoWatch provides the best play-by-play of the implosion of the counterfeit CONciLIAR church and the schemes toward a One World Order which is intent on erasing all true spirituality from this planet. Also he provides excellent commentary on the Tradcasts and Tradcast Express at the same site. Others worth checking on daily are for articles and links, as well as True Restoration and the following blogs that we heartily recommend Introibo Ad Altare Dei, Fr. Anthony Cekada's Quidlibet, Bishop Donald Sanborn's In Veritate, and the satirical, but on-point Call Me Jorge. We also point you to Traditio which, although the Father Moderators will not admit the term "sedevacantism", 95% of what they provide reinforces this position. Note, we provide here those sites that carry almost daily coverage and in no way demean other sites that update more infreqently. For those sites, please see Traditional Catholic Resource Port.

    The only obstacle to total domination as a totalitarian society is the Roman Catholic Church. Always has been. Since the death of the last true Sovereign Pontiff Pope Pius XII on October 9, 1958 that wall of resistance has been steadily crumbling thanks to those with a worldly Marxist bent to accept the world and please man rather than God as is so evident today. Oh, the devil is laughing, but he seems to forget Genesis 3:15 where the Blessed Virgin Mary will crush his head with her heel. Oh, we can't wait! Until then, it's important to expose the wolves just as the holy Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales advises for the sake of informing souls of the dangers these charlatans pose. The sad fact is that since Vatican 2, the counterfeit church that eclipsed the true Church has put all their marbles in the corporal side of things while ignoring the spiritual. This is so obvious today with Marxist-bred Bergoglio's humanistic globalism for a One World Relgion that totally ignores Divine Law by focusing favor on the world, the flesh, and, yes, definitely the devil.

   While we see the edifications of the saints, we also must be aware of their adversaries who work tirelessly to dissuade souls from pursuing holiness, which we will cover further down for it is not something that has just happened, but was percolating for centuries and only came to the surface over the past 50 plus years with the cabal that corrals Catholics today with the notion that doctrine evolves and that everyone goes to Heaven. To alert souls to this deception, what we all must do is...


    To affirm this in more depth and assist you in this truth, we heartily recommend Griff Ruby's two-volume books titled Sede Vacante. In addition we present here 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.

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.


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:

       As much as we hate to beg, we have no choice. 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.

Whatever you would have contributed toward any 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"?
