Let the Son shine on you this summer

  With the hazy, lazy days of summer upon us, The DAILY CATHOLIC is on a much-needed summer hiatus for June and July. Because of nerve complications with the editor he needs to rest and cannot stay at the computer for more than an hour a day. In addition, we don't presently have the funds to cover those months. If you would like to send a love offering to help defray expenses, click Love Offering. Therefore, until we can afford to, this issue will serve as our summer hiatus issue. Right now, depending on recovery time and further prognosis, we hope to be back on line with regular issues on the Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Lord Jesus Christ on Monday, August 6th. It is dependent on donations and the editor's health.

   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 provide past issues and columns to review, as well as specific links to all the documents of Trent, Vatican I, Vatican II, past Sovereign Pontiffs' important pronouncements, and catechetical references to both the Baltimore Catechism and the 'new' Catechism of the Catholic Church so that you'll take the time to decipher for yourself why we have 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.

20 Years of Grace

    "Dear children! I am with you and I bless you all with my motherly blessing. Especially today when God gives you abundant graces, pray and seek God through me. God gives you great graces, that is why, little children make good use of this time of grace and come closer to my heart so that I can lead you to my Son Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call."

Cardinal Pierre Eyt   and   Cardinal Thomas Winning

  In the month of June two European Princes of the Church have left us. On June 11, Cardinal Pierre Eyt, 67, Archbishop of Bordeaux passed away. On June 17 Cardinal Thomas Winning, Scotland's uncompromising crusader for the Sanctity of Life and Family values, died of a heart attack at his home in Glasgow. He was 76. Their deaths bring the total to 181 cardinals with 132 eligible to vote in Conclave. Both were elevated in Pope John Paul II's Consistory of November 26, 1994.

Need to take some time to get better!

  In our commentary today, we give a short explanation of why we will be on summer hiatus until at least August 6th. It is necessary for health and financial reasons and we appreciate your patience and understanding. But you'll have plenty to read as you can see to the left and below. For our editorial We can all catch His rays this summer! in CATHOLIC PewPOINT

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 and their bishops in the Senate 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


  Though we won't be bringing you daily features for the next few months while on hiatus we provide plenty of reading material for those who are serious about knowing more about their Faith so that they might better understand the tenets of our Faith and not be so easily mislead into believing anything that comes down the pike...whether that be from someone in your parish, from the DRE in your diocese, from various outlets intent on telling you how it should be. 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.

Saint PaulSaint Peter Major Feast Days for the next two months

   While we are on summer hiatus there are several wonderful Feasts the Church celebrates and we share the story of these feasts and solemnities with you including the final big feast of June - the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, two of the most significant figures in Church history, on June 29th. For other major feasts in June, see June.

    In the month of July, dedicated to the Precious Blood of Jesus, we have first the Feast of Saint Thomas the Apostle, the Feast of Saint Benedict, father of western monasticism. The middle of the month we celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel followed nine days later by the Feast of the Apostle Saint James the Greater and the next day we celebrate the Feast of Our Lady's parents Saint Anne and Joachim. July winds up with the feast of the founder of the Society of Jesus Saint Ignatius Loyola. For July, see July.

   August begins with the feast of Saint Alphonsus Liguori, Bishop and Doctor of the Church and the First Saturday of the month is also the feast of that humble and great confessor - the Cure d'Ars Saint John Baptist Mary Vianney leading up to the Feasts of the Transfiguration of Our Lord. Hopefully we'll be back on line by that time, so enjoy the liturgical season and don't forget the many other saints not covered in these pages but honored so in Heaven. For August, see Early August.

When man wears morality and virtue it will fit fine!

    "Modern man is naked. He has been stripped by false prophets who told him that his old clothes of morality were out of date. Now, none of the new suits he puts on can cover his nakedness - moreover, they give him considerable discomfort. The preoccupation with political evils has for the moment blinded us to the grosser sins of spiritual pride and intellectual sloth. But the obtrusiveness of evil is no reason for despair. Saner minds will see the issue more clearly."
