Coming on the Feast of the Transfiguration

  In just a matter of days we will be unveiling a new format that will provide an overview front page for each issue, and special pages for features and articles, daily news portal and information, devotion and reflection. In addition we will be introducing four new series that will run in each issue.

   Those four new series are previewed in this final edition of the summer hiatus issues series. In addition, we will resume the much-anticipated series by Dr. Tom Droleskey on the General Information on the Roman Missal - The Germs of G.I.R.M. in which he analyzes the doublespeak and explains what it really says.

   During this time we encourage you to return here daily for our Daily News Portal (to the right) which will provide the latest news on the Church and religious issues that you won't readily find in the secular media.

   In addition, we continue to provide past issues and columns to review, as well as specific links to all the documents from Trent to the present so that you'll take the time to decipher for yourself why this publication has taken a more Traditional turn towards the True Faith that is greatly under siege by satan in these times foretold.

  We invite you to see how so many of the absolutes have been turned to ambiguities and have made it easier for satan to enter the sanctuary, doing even further damage. Pray for our beloved Church. Pray for our beloved Holy Father Pope John Paul II, who is the evil one's main target in accomplishing the devil's goal of a one-world-order, a one-world-religion that will usher in the reign of the antichrist.

  See also our most recent editorial on the "Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days of Summer" and the damage done. The question is what can we do to recoup what was lost!

If only we had known..!

That refrain so often follows times of regret. We are in that state now.

Many think it's too late to stop the auto-demolition of the Church and are resigned to accepting the ambiguities and absurdities, but we beg to differ and trace the problems back to the summer of '63 - those times that few realized were truly the lazy-hazy-crazy days!

  In our commentary for early August, we take you back to the summer of 1963 and the turning point between the age of innocence and the age of deceit and abandonment of the values and principles the Church had always stood for. In the Holy See there was a changing of the Keeper of the Keys. The changing of the guard had already occurred with the death of Pope Pius XII in 1958. Few realized the undercurrent of rebellion that was already at work in 1963, a revolt spurred on by those very theologians Pius had rightly exiled for their scandal and heresy. The coals of destruction were stoked even higher by the American bishops in the 60's who cared little for their flocks or God's holy will. They purposely fanned the fires for doing away with religious life in favor of "religious freedom - freedom of conscience." 38 years later the American bishops are still undermining the Faith. For more, see our editorial "You'll wish that Summer could always be here!" in CATHOLIC PewPOINT

"If the bloody legacy of the last century has taught us anything, it's that the end never justifies the means"

   Those are the words of Denver's Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, OFM Cap. one prelate who is not afraid to speak out. Regardless of the consequences, he is one of the few American bishops you can count on to speak the truths of the absolutes of the Roman Catholic Church. He does this eloquently in a rebuttal to the Denver Post's depiction of pro-life advocates as zealots. For his Excellency's article The Evil of Embryo Destruction, see MITERS THAT MATTER

Pope's Intentions for August

The Pope's General Intention for August 2001 is Legislators and leaders whose decisions are guided by God. How timely considering the stone-walling by the American bishops in calling legislators and leaders to task and the impending decision by President George W. Bush on whether to sign the death warrant for America by allowing federal funding for embryonic stem cell research, or to do the right thing which the Pope urged him to do during his face to face meeting last week. The Holy Father's Missionary intention is Use of China's own great tradtion to enrich the spirituality of the Church in China. On this intention we must pray for China shows little signs of permitting religious freedom despite the rhetoric.

Major Feast Days for the first week of August

   August dawns with the Feast of Saint Alphonsus Liguori, Bishop, Doctor of the Church and Religious Founder. On Friday we honor the great confessor Saint John Vianney, the Cure d'Ars and the epitome of what a parish priest should be. On Monday the universal Church celebrates the Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Lord. For these major feasts, see August.


A meeting of holy minds and hearts in the celestial mansions

   We are proud to introduce today yet another feature that will run regularly in these pages beginning on August 6th. It is called Saints Preserve us! and it will serve as a vehicle to hear from the saints on topics that Catholics are confronted with today in endeavoring to live their Faith. These will be panel discussions of three different saints each time, always moderated by the universal patron of the Church Saint Joseph. For more on how this will work and the rationale behind it, see the Prologue to SAINTS PRESERVE US!

A noble effort to resurrect a vital and vibrant culture that has been forgotten by the past few generations

   We are privileged to bring you in our next issue two of the finest, most respected writers in the Traditional movement today. They are Atila Sinke Guimar„es, the Brazilian born scholar who has dedicated his life to getting to the truth, traveling throughout Europe, the Americas and other areas of the world in uncovering the facts, and Marian Therese Horvat, the knowledgable historian whose crusade, along with Atila's and all committed Catholics, is to return the Church to a sense of the sacred and reverence by awakening in the faithful the need for adherence to the absolutes and disciplines expected and demanded by Our Lord. The two of them head up Tradition in Action and have written extensively on the auto-demolition of the Church since Vatican II. Their first article is on restoring the Sacred Heart of Jesus to His rightful place in the strata of society. We know you'll appreciate their words in the series CULTIVATING CATHOLIC CULTURE coming August 6th.

Exposing the strategy of the dark side
  We have unencrypted 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 a preview, see Introduction to the Memorendamns

Where there's smoke, there's fire!
A novel - 15 years in the making - deals with the effects of ecumenism and globalization and the impact on the Vatican and society. It will take the reader across four continents in an 8-day span that could be the final days of civilization as we know it!

  Introducing an on-line novel for these times that is both a prophecy and global incendiary event waiting to happen. Taut, interwoven action will take the reader across three 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 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 for hell is about to engulf the world. Only one weapon is available to this small remnant that can destroy the evil in the hearts of men. "White Smoke, Black Fire!" begins August 6th. For the Prologue, see WHITE SMOKE, BLACK FIRE!

Pray for those who stubbornly continue to legislate pro-abortion measures and pray for their bishops as well!

   Our series of "Herod's Hero" is now complete and we encourage you to review who is on this list, to tell your friends and parishioners, and to contact those who violate the 5th Commandment and their respective bishops and call on the latter to enforce the disciplines the Church demands. For the 13 betrayers in the Senate, their bishops and 5 governors, see SENATE, and for the 54 pro-aborts in the U.S. House, who claim to be Catholic, see HOUSE. Do all you can to help stop the horrible Holocausts of the Womb. See HEROD'S HEROES

Please SIGN THE PETITION TO THE POPE to end the hypocrisy of pro-abort 'Catholic' politicians once and for all!  See PETITION TO THE HOLY FATHER

We urge you to be informed, to research and review Church documents

   Find out for yourself the truths as we present a compendium portal of documents from Trent to present day. We guarantee you if you read it all with a discerning heart you will be able to decipher the wheat from the chaff, understand what the absolutes of our Faith are and not be fooled by modernism and ambiguities, no matter how cleverly they are couched. Remember satan is the father of half-truths. For the special page that provides the portal, see Documents of the Church.

The blame game only intensifies with excuses, imprisons us even more.

    "Hardly anyone today challenges the view that character is made by outside or external influences, such as home background, schooling, poverty or wealth, the propaganda to which an individual was subjected and the neighborhood in which he was raised. This view could lead to the destruction of responsibility if carried to extremes - and responsibility, it must not be forgotten, is the mark of freedom."

The Message, Meaning & Medals of Rue de Bac

  The Age of Marian Apparitions began in 1830 at Rue de Bac. Now this time of Our Lady's visits are coming to a close. Godincidentally her messages all tie in with the visions to Saint Catherine Laboure and the completion of the Medal of the Virgin of the Globe per Mary's request for a medal to be cast depicting her offering a golden globe to the Heavenly Father from all her children as the Advocate, Mediatrix and CoRedemptrix. For more on this, see Medal of the Virgin Most Powerful
