   "The denial of Truth is just as fatal to the mind as the denial of light is to vision. Truth in its fullness is not easy to attain, even if one does admit its existence. To explore Truth in all its complexity there must come moments when we confess ignorance, when we frankly admit that we were mistaken or bigoted, or prejudiced. These admissions are painful, but they actually enrich character just as much as all approximations to falsehood forfeit it."  Bishop Fulton J. Sheen

              

Boasting over the shards of cathedral glass that will shatter souls!

  We have unencyrpted some e-mails that the one, who calls himself the "SpamMaster," tried to sneak past us since we are friends of his great Foe. They are similar to the letters that came into the ownership of one Clive Staples Lewis some 50 years ago. While these recent ones are comparable in scope, they are much more devastating for they come not from one of the devil's helpers, but transmitted by the devil himself. Today things are much worse for the spamMaster has expanded his reach by addressing numerous anonymous of his legion on earth whom he calls soulScanners by number. These intercepted memos from the spamMaster shed light on what the prince of darkness is up to and will help all to stay a step ahead of him and draw closer to the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts. We've titled these "Memorendamns." The title speaks for itself. For the fourth intercepted Memorendamn where the spamMaster speaks to his prime soulScanner in the west on Whited Sepulchres, see MEMORENDAMNS

Introduction of group participation in the Novus Ordo has led to a diminishing of the priest's proper role in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    "Pope Pius XII commented on this in Mediator Dei in 1947: 'For there are today, Venerable Brethren, those who, approximating to errors long since condemned, teach that in the New Testament by the word 'priesthood' is meant only that priesthood which applies to all who have been baptized; and hold that the command by which Christ gave power to His Apostles at the Last Supper to do what He Himself had done, applies directly to the entire Christian Church, and that thence, and thence only, arises the hierarchical priesthood. Hence they assert that the people are possessed of a true priestly power, while the priest only acts in virtue of an office committed to him by the community."
   In this issue Thomas A. Droleskey, Ph.D. continues his fascinating, logical, factual treatise Germs of GIRM on ferreting out the doublespeak and contradictions contained in the General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM) which has confused so many and, instead of clearing up abuses, only is a license to experiment some more, all contributing to the continuing deconstruction of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass that sustained the Church and her faithful for some 1,500 years.

Why would Cardinal Ratzinger want to abandon the 'classic' evangelization for the ambiguity of the 'new evangelization'?

    "Evangelization began with our parents, was continued by the selfless priests and nuns who supported the authentic teaching of Holy Mother Church. We learned, my dear brothers and sisters, that whatever vocation we had as we grew to adulthood, we would be evangelizers, teaching the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Faith, and praying for conversions in our daily lives. Do we no longer do this? Apparently we do not, because the statement of Cardinal Ratzinger suggests that this once-strong and vibrant evangelization, the 'classic' evangelization no longer applies. I beg his pardon, but I do not agree. Never should Holy Mother Church have abandoned the 'classic' evangelization. It had worked for 1,960 years. Why would it fail to work in a 'modern' world? "
   In her column for this issue, Cyndi Cain reviews an interview with Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger in the latest INSIDE THE VATICAN and takes issue with the cardinal's ambiguity and modern-speak. She asks whatever happened to the simplicity of truth and tradition. Why do those promoting the 'new evangelization' of the conciliar church insist on insulting the intelligence of the faithful, knowledgable Catholic by pandering to Protestant thought? Because they're trying to win friends and influence people in the same manner humanist Dale Carnegie preached. It doesn't take a Doctor of the Church to realize the errors in their thinking because the basis for their rationale is built on sand, not the rock of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. The sooner all realize this, the sooner Holy Mother Church will return to enhancing the Truths and Traditions expected of the Church Militant. For her column The Truth is simple, not complicated! The Truth is clear, never ambiguous! see SYMPHONY OF SUFFERING

Three more saints enlighten the faithful in a panel discussion with Saint Joseph

  We continue with this new concept for Catholic readers everywhere. We are inundated by talk shows, panel discussions, etc. etc. talking about anything and everything. But what does it all really matter? What matters is what God says. What matters is what the saints have passed down through the way they lived their lives in striving for what we all must set as our goal: sanctity. The Church has always held these men and women up for us to emulate. Unfortunately, today so many of the saints have been forgotten, or dismissed as "out-of-touch" in the misguided modern thinking. Therefore, we have put together a hypothetical panel discussion in which Saint Joseph will moderate each time with three other saints from various periods in history and what they have to say about the state of things in our Church and world today. In this issue the universal patron of the Church invites Saint Jerome, the venerated Doctor of the Church responsible for translating the Vulgate Bible in the 4th Century, Saint Isaac the Great, the Catholicos Patriarch who translated the Scriptures into Armenian in the same century, and Saint Joan of Arc, the Maid of Orleans who gave her life for the Truths she would not denounce. . Guided by Joseph, they weigh in with wisdom on how There can be no compromise to Truth . It should be fascinating and tweak a few consciences at the same time. For the third panel in the Heavenly Mansion, see SAINTS PRESERVE US!

Which do you choose to follow?
The teachings of Martin Luther or the infallible doctrine of Pope Saint Pius V?

To Catholics that might seem like a ridiculous question, but when you research farther you'll realize the conciliar Church since Vatican II has embraced all Martin Luther proposed and more, while cleverly concealing and rejecting most of what Pope Saint Pius V decreed and set in stone after the landmark Council of Trent.

    In our commentary for this issue, we point out the fallacies that have been allowed to be passed down over the past three decades and how, instead of bringing 'fresh air' - aggiorimento to the Church as Pope John XXIII had thought - it has only lodged (pun intended) the conciliar Church in deeper with the masonic movement and the Protestant agenda to destroy the Church by weakening her from within. We have had nearly 40 years of being brainwashed with the 'new evangelization' that is getting more play today as the 'ecumaniacs' intensify their efforts to push ecumenism on all and cover-up the lie that the Latin Mass - the Mass of All Ages - was abrogated. It was never abrogated! It is as valid and permitted today as it was during the time of Pope Pius XII. The only problem is Rome is afraid to tell you because they are afraid of their own bishops who dare not tell you the truth. Don't believe? Then find out for yourself. We show you the way.

All Hallows Eve and the living is easy...for a few minutes more at least!
       In the last issue we introduced the third episode of an on-line novel for these times that has been 15 years in the making. This copyrighted work is called, "White Smoke, Black Fire!" Though it is copyrighted, you may print it and distribute it to others, as well as e-mail providing the sources and disclaimer are included. "White Smoke, Black Fire!" is both a prophecy and global incendiary event waiting to happen. Taut, interwoven action takes the reader across four continents on a physical and psychological eight-day journey into hell as an eclectic group of ordinary people - lay and religious - are suddenly catapulted into the smoldering ashes of the Basilisk's Black Fire. They band together in a desperate attempt to save mankind - body and soul. The fast and furious action takes one from the boardrooms of America to the murky labyrinth of Rome's slums, from the vast ecumenical stage in Iraq to the hidden recesses behind the wailing wall, from the private chambers of the Papal Palace to the mysterious regions of Northern Africa. The Basilisk's tentacles reach out to every level of political, ecclesial, and foreign intrigue all surrounding the election of the next Pontiff to be signaled by White Smoke billowing forth, if it isn't already blotted out completely by the Black Fire of hell.
    Previously a mysterious dark figure invaded the climes of the world religious leaders with devastating and clandestine results. The explosives have been put in place in a setting in Iraq where it is believed once stood the Garden of Eden. In the last issue the reader was introduced to three of the major characters who are gathered in an out-of-the-way downtown honkytonk in Dallas, Texas on a blistery Halloween night. The goblins are afoot. In this issue you'll discover more about Pat Gallagher and Corrie Morelli. For the fourth episode of the First Chapter of Part One - The Unleashing, see WHITE SMOKE, BLACK FIRE!
