   November is the month we commemorate the meaning of the Communion of Saints when we observe All Saints and All Souls. God has created a cycle which guarantees a 'win-win' situation. We as the Church Militant offer Prayer and Praise to the Church Triumphant in return for Intercession and Graces. In turn we offer Suffrages and Indulgences for the Church Suffering and they offer Prayer and Gratitude, given Intercession and Relief by the Heavenly Saints. Thus all are members of the Mystical Body of Christ as Paul affirms in Romans 12: 5, "So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one, members of one another." It takes teamwork, all working together for the greater honor and glory of God. Heroic Acts of Charity for the poor souls is one way we can contribute. The rewards are everlasting!

The Council of Chalcedon
  Twenty years after Ephesus, Saint Pulcheria played a key role in the fourth General Council; this time influencing her husband Marcian, then the Roman Emperor of the East, to coordinate with Pope Saint Leo the Great in convening it at Chalcedon in Thessalonica just northwest of Constantinople. Once again a false teaching was at the heart of the meeting. This time Monophysitism (the false teaching that Christ had only one nature) was at the forefront of controversy. It was taught by the Abbot Eutyches who also sought discord, causing confusion so that the Council asserted that Constantinople should be on an equal basis with Rome ecclesiastically. Vigorously opposing this and Eutyches, Pope Leo determined in his Dogmatic Epistle of October 10, 451 that the See of Peter in Rome is and always shall be the Seat of Primacy with no equal and that Eutyches was a heretic. Leo was proclaimed the 'Soul of Chalcedon' and the Council agreed unanimously that through Leo, Peter had spoken and Eutyches was condemned. For the full documents of the fourth General Council see CHALCEDON
Christ or chaos
Dr. Tom Droleskey continues his series on G.I.R.M. Warfare. He points out GIRM's norms for the Novus Ordo go against the advice of past papal decrees including Pope Pius XII's Mediator Dei. The subtraction of much that was inherent in the Traditional Roman Rite Mass has only added up to more confusion for the congregants at the New Mass and opened a whole new can of worms by interpreting Sacred Scripture. Watering down the Faith
Pro Life Prescriptions
During all the mourning after the 9-11 attack, Planned Parenthood, NARAL and NOW have been planning their own attack on morals, family values and God's Laws. Dr. Frank Joseph challenges these avowed pro-aborts to at least be honest. If they're for killing in the womb, then call a spade a spade, but don't camoflage it as something noble. An Open Letter to Planned Parenthood, NARAL and NOW
Sanctity of Life
Fr. Frank Pavone brings to the reader's attention the exploitation of women by the medical profession hiding behind the Roe vs. Wade decision. Women's rights groups keep boasting of their rights, but they don't realize their God-given rights have been greatly compromised. The Neglected Side of Roe vs. Wade
Simply Sheen
Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen indicates that despite the Pandora's box man opens, God always provides a light at the end of the tunnel. God allows the evil of man for good by providing hope to all!
Standing with the Church Militant On the BattleLine
Atila Sinke Guimar„es traces the Revolution of evil from the Middle Ages when many in the Revolution abandoned the universal kingship of Christ as King. He reminds readers of the symbolism of the Crown, especially in reference to the Reign of Mary when her Immaculate Heart will triumph as promised at Fatima. The Symbol of the Crown in the Reign of Mary
Catholic PewPOINT
Editor Michael Cain thanks readers for reaching the 25 million mark after only four years, but time is irrelevant when measured with God's time and His charge to use our time to help save souls. He pledges The DAILY CATHOLIC's efforts to this as he asks all to help keep The DAILY CATHOLIC afloat in a sea of red ink. Financial help is vital in helping save so many being sucked into the swirling whirlpool of the world, the flesh and the devil. We will never abandon our search and rescue efforts for souls!
Exspectans exspectavimus "Ecclesia Dei"

The Great Sacrilege
Father James F. Wathen, O.S.J. has granted permission to publish his entire work "The Great Sacrilege" which we urge you to read for everything he wrote in 1971 is backed by solid, Roman Catholic doctrine and the depositum fidei - the Sacred Deposit of the Faith and still holds true. Part Two of Chapter Three The Council of Trent and the True Mass
Echoes of True Catholicism
Dr. Marian Horvat emphasizes how the culture revolution of the sixties played right into the hands of the prince of darkness as clothing influenced lifestyle and lifestyle influence morals and culture. The unisex movement gave way to a disregard for human dignity and even the life of the innocents as abortion, homosexuality and every kind of sin reared its ugly head as she explains in part four of The Egalitarian Revolution
White Smoke, Black Fire!

Answer to last quiz: While many assumed the phrase "The floor of hell is paved with the skulls of bishops" was said by the author of Dante's Inferno - Aligheri Dante or Martin Luther because of his bitterness towards the Church, in actuality that statement was made by the uncompromising Patriarch of Constantinople - the golden-mouthed preacher Saint John Chrysostom, who, like Saint Augustine, is a Bishop and Doctor of the Church. If he was referring to how bad the bishops of the late fourth century were, how much moreso today when so many prelates have compromised with the world, the flesh and the devil? Pray for the bishops that they will realize the truths of St. John's words and pray for the many abandoned bishops in Purgatory during the month of November.
