New Masthead for The DAILY CATHOLIC
To show our total commitment to the Truth and Traditions of Holy Mother Church, we decided to redesign the masthead so that the Tabernacle is back on the Altar as it should be. The altar we have depicted is the way every Catholic altar in every church in the world looked before Vatican II. If your church doesn't look like this, you have every reason and the grave responsibility before God to ask your pastor or your bishop WHY! You'll note in the new masthead how everything radiates from the Holy of Holies onto the altar and shining on the Two Pillars which Saint John Bosco envisioned, encouraging all to be anchored between the two Pillars of the Most Holy Eucharist and Devotion to Blessed Mary's Immaculate Heart. Over the next several issues we will be gradually blending it into other pages as well.
We are also featuring in this issue several articles that help the reader understand the breakdown of Catholic tradition stemming from the reforms of Vatican II and what loyal Catholics can do to better separate the wheat from the chaff and help their own journey toward Heaven as well as helping others keep the True Faith alive.

Answer to last quiz: Saint Paul was the one who said "If anyone preach a gospel to you other than that which you have received, let him be anathema!". He emphasized this in Galatians 1: 8-9. It surprised us somewhat that Jesus got so many votes. It surprised us even more that some thought St. Bernard of Clairvaux and John Paul II first said it. It only reaffirms that few Catholics truly know Sacred Scripture - Divine Revelation - and if they don't know the Word of God then they'll believe the words of men no matter who they are, even if they be in the hierarchy of the Church. We put that quote in there for a reason for indeed you need to know what is true and what is anathema, and therefore condemned. According to past Councils and true Catholic teaching, much of what was promulgated in the reforms of Vatican II is anathema!
The First Council of Constantinople|
Constantinople Emperor Theodosius I convened the second General Council, but because of friction, Pope Saint Damasus I did not attend. Already the split between East and West was manifesting itself. 186 bishops did attend. Most notable were Doctors of the Church Saint Gregory Nazianzus and Saint Cyril of Jerusalem, who, with the Council Fathers, reaffirmed the First Council of Nicaea. They also condemned the heresy of Macedonius by affirming the divinity of the Third Person of the Trinity in defining the Consubstantiality of the Holy Spirit with the Father and the Son. For the second General Council see CONSTANTINOPLE ONE

Editor Michael Cain answers those who think The DAILY CATHOLIC's fidelity has waned by asking who really is faithful to Catholic teaching as decreed through 20 Ecumenical Councils and handed down in the great Deposit of Faith. Ask your pastor or bishop about the Sacred Oath he took. If he didn't take it, ask why. Therein you'll have your answer as to who is truly faithful to Holy Mother Church, the Primacy of Peter and the perennial Magisterium as we point out in If you serve mammon, you are not serving God!
