  • This Council established for all time that the only time a Pope cannot be in error is when he speaks from the Chair of Peter ex cathedra. All other times he is not immune from error. This clarified the distinction of infallibility. Papal Infallibility would not be declared dogma until Vatican I.

    Editor Michael Cain illustrates how, through compromising the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church, we have allowed the revisionist historians and theologians to dictate what is right and wrong today.

  • Dr. Tom Droleskey shows that with the new Czar for Homeland Security being an avowed pro-abort 'Catholic' and the bishops continuing to do nothing no one is safe from the terrorism of the womb.

  • Dr. Marian Horvat paints a picture of the exceptional organic Catholic family, a stark contrast to the nuclear Protestant family concept that has sadly become the norm as she explains in the sixth of a multi-parter on the Egalitarian Revolution.

    We continue with a comparison of the true Roman rite of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with the New rite of the Mass established by Paul VI in 1969 - today focusing on the Preface and Canon of the Mass up to the Consecration - so all readers can see how much of the sacred and meaning has been lost.

  • Father Peter Scott on reasons why the Society, in talks with Roman authorities of Ecclesia Dei, cannot compromise the Rights of God.

  • Atila Sinke Guimar„es provides the second part on how the agenda of ecumenism has paved the way for the Muslims to steamroll into Europe and slowly, but surely eliminate the Church through suffocation and subterfuge.

    Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen shows that, unlike Protestants, Moslems are more favorable toward the Blessed Virgin Mary and therein is the key to their conversion.

  • Dr. Frank Joseph brings the readers' attention to the denial of the pro-aborts and the link to Breast Cancer as Karen Malec provides proof of the link.

  • Fourth part of Chapter Three - The Act part one. The Great Sacrilege, written in 1971 by the dauntless Traditional priest Father James F. Wathen, O.S.J., picks up where the Ottaviani Intervention left off.

  • Father Jacques Emily pinpoints in part one of two parts the problems with accepting the Moslem propaganda.

  • A Jesuit priest points out that to change Catholics' thinking the architects of the revolution only had to change the books of worship and ICEL has seen to that!

    Third Episode of Chapter Three: Four of the Legion of the Basilisk commence a strategic meeting in the seedy alleys of Rome as Pat rumbles toward the Field of Death in a battered military jeep.

    Answer to last quiz: Because Saint Peter of Alcantara was dropped from the liturgy saints of saints in the new liturgical calendar and no longer celebrated on October 19th in the post-conciliar Church, he received the fewest votes of the four saints listed though indeed it was St. Peter who wrote the Treatise on Prayer and Meditation This holy man of Alcantara was Saint Teresa of Avila's confessor and adviser and much about him is contained in her autobiography, even though today he is largely forgotten. The Doctor of the Church Saint Francis de Sales later used and preached St. Peter of Alcantara's works, especially his Treatise and it was the base for his own works Introduction to the Devout Life and Treatise on the Love of God. Saint Ignatius of Loyola was the one who wrote Spiritual Exercises, published in 1540 - the same year St. Peter resigned as minister provincial of the Franciscans to become a hermit and fifteen years later, with the permission of Pope Julius III, founded the Alcantarines devoted to a life of penance and austerity. His personal advice and works greatly aided St. Teresa and Saint John of the Cross in their efforts for reform of the Carmelites.

    We continue with the General or Ecumenical Councils of the Church with the sixth in this issue.

    Pray for the Holy Souls in Purgatory by adding the Prayer of Saint Gertrude the Great after the Fatima Prayer. During November countless Souls are released everytime this prayer is said for that intention:

    "Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son Jesus Christ, in union with all the Holy Masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in Purgatory and for sinners everywhere: for sinners in the universal Church, in my home and in my family. Amen."

    Third Council of Constantinople

      117 years after the Second Council of Constantinople, the Emperor Constantine IV decided it was time to call another General Council, especially in light of the growing threat of Islamism. In agreement with Pope Saint Agatho, the Council was convened with again over 200 bishops in 680. The heresy of the time was Monothelitesism which falsely taught that Christ only had a Divine will, rather than a Divine and human will. It denied the perfect harmony of the two wills within the one Divine Person. Pope Agatho died during this Council and his successor Pope Saint Leo II continued it, approving the decrees of past Councils and taking to task one of his predecessors Pope Honorius I for not keeping the heresy of Monothelites in check, specifically not challenging the Patriarch of Constantinople Sergius who was spreading the heresy. St. Leo's actions set a precedence for calling into question error by previous Pontiffs and confirmed that a Pope can be in error when not speaking from the Chair of Peter - ex cathedra.

    Standing with the Church Militant On the BattleLine
    Atila Sinke Guimar„es illustrates how Vatican II's ecumenism agenda opened the door for allowing Muslimism to spread uncontrolled throughout Europe, stifling the Catholic conscience and sensibilities to the truths that Islam is the religion of infidels and seeks to destroy the Church rather than current thought that ignores this in the effort to compromise for the sake of being accepted as he points out in the second of the two-part How the Crescent Moon intends to eclipse the Cross
