November is the Month of the Communion of Saints. The first day is dedicated to the Church Triumphant (All Saints), the second to the Church Suffering (All Souls); the rest of the month and year is up to us - the Church Militant - to do our part.

Echoes of True Catholicism
Following her excellent article on the Novissima last week, Dr. Marian Therese Horvat begins today a three-part essay on the Rapture. She points out what is behind the corporate enterprise that is spreading this heresy through the phenomenology of the "Left Behind" series, the concept of which should get left behind by every Catholic for it goes against all Holy Mother Church has always taught. Today she enlightens the reader as to the false presumption of such a concoction as the "Rapture" and how this concept has spread so rapidly to engulf the thinking of not only Protestants, but many Catholics who simply do not understand Church Doctrine on the end times. She lays out the Rupture that is the Rapture in Part One of The Rapture Virus .
The Germs of G.I.R.M.
Today we bring you part fifty-nine of Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey's well-received, thought-provoking series on G.I.R.M. warfare as he continues analyzing and commenting on the ambiguity and errors in the General Instruction of the Roman Missal and the ICEL operatives who have contributed to promulgating this atrocity. Today, in commenting and analyzing paragraphs 143 through 151 he illustrates how Archbishop Annibale Bugnini, the Freemason architect of the New Mass of Paul VI, so cleverly eliminated the essence of The Roman Canon which enabled those out to destroy the Mass the power to assimilate a celebration of a meal and take away the propitiatory sacrifice of Calvary which the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass has always conveyed. Through Bugnin's shuffling of the rubrics and direct violation of infallible decrees, he opened the door for doing away with the alter Christus which G.I.R.M. has been only too willing to comply with and continue the charade that, in effect is nothing more than Doing the Bugnini Shuffle .
Profiles of the Saints & Seasons
Today is the Double Major Feast of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary in which the Church takes time to reflect on The consecration of Mary to God presented all the conditions of the most perfect sacrifice: it was prompt, generous, joyous, unregretted, without reservation. How agreeable it must have been to God! May our consecration of ourselves to God be made under Her patronage, assisted by Her powerful intercession and united with Her ineffable merits.

 Exspectans exspectavimus Ecclesia Dei
Bishop Richard Williamson, in a stunning, and most encouraging letter to Traditional Catholics dated November 6th, laid out five points that illustrate the inevitable "end to the Newchurch cuckoo's occupying the Catholic Church nest." He also revealed what we first conveyed to you in Monday's editorial regarding the purported apparitions to the Pope this year, expressing the hope that Heaven could now be intervening to stop the humanist interlopers who have usurped Holy Mother Church. The Bishop reinforced the Society's desire to help by throwing lifelines of solid orthodoxy to those flailing in the swirling waters of novelty and ecumenism, but not to join a sinking ship for that would suck the Society down as well. He pointed to two recent literary breakthroughs, one by Atila Sinke Guimar„es, a regular contributing writer for The DAILY CATHOLIC, which indicate things are accelerating in the battle to preserve the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church. Modern Rome wants Tradition to Transition. It cannot be so. There must be a Transition by Rome back to Tradition. That is the only way Truth will prevail as His Excellency related in Truth Prevails, Times Five.

Traditional Thoughts
Wednesday we presented the second of a two part in-depth article, begun in Tuesday's issue and reprinted from this month's CATHOLIC FAMILY NEWS with the kind permission of editor John Vennari, who wrote this excellent essay on the insanity of adding five more mysteries to a tradition that needed no alterations. The Rosary is the last vestige of devotion that hadn't been tinkered with, but now, thanks to John Paul II's Apostolic Letter Rosarium Virginis Mariae released on October 16th this year, that too has the fingerprints of the Conciliarists. It is only too evident they have disregarded all Heaven has conveyed and what the Pope's predecessors from Leo X through Pius XII held as sacrosanct and untouchable. John addressed the noticeable absence of Fatima and Lepanto in RVM and the wise warning of Pope Saint Pius X in his Pascendi Dominici Gregis in the second part of Twenty Mysteries of the Rosary?.
SIMPLY SHEEN: Treasures from Bishop Sheen
The late, great Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen pointed out that throughout life we share the joy of the hosannas on Jesus's entrance into Jerusalem and the sad lows of His Passion and Death climaxed by the exhiliarting high of sharing the joys of the Risen Savior. These two spectrums of emotion evoke sympathy - sadness and joy. In one the pain is lessened and in the other the exhilaration amplified if we have someone to share our tears and laughter. If we can learn to understand what it is like to walk in another's shoes, then we will follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ in the manner He has asked us as Bishop Sheen explained in The Dual Countenances of Sympathy .


The Germs of G.I.R.M.
Tuesday we brought you part fifty-eight of Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey's well-received, thought-provoking series on G.I.R.M. warfare as he continued analyzing and commenting on the ambiguity and errors in the General Instruction of the Roman Missal and the ICEL operatives who have contributed to promulgating this atrocity. He illustrated how G.I.R.M. has made fungible the Roman Rite which was established as a timeless fixed Rite, into a changeable, topical service where exterior actions, dictated by majority rule of whatever culture and political correctness are prominent at the time, take precedence over the interior, silent assistance of each soul at the "solemnity of the unbloody representation of Calvary." This and other abuses, Tom analyzed in paragraphs 139-142 of G.I.R.M. as he explained in A Fixed Rite Turned into a Fungible Fix .

White Smoke, Black Fire!
Gleaned from the daily headlines and Sacred Scripture, the on-line fictional novel "White Smoke, Black Fire!" deals with how the followers of the Anti-Christ, through political cunning, compromise and media manipulation, try to wrest control from within the Vatican after a horrific holocaust of terror at the birthplace of Abraham. As the world tries to recover, Corrie receives a call in Dallas that does not bode well for Pat's chances. Meanwhile in Rome various members of the Legion plot the next move and Riage Benziger struggles for his life as a prisoner inside Father Urazzi's office as he is grilled by Cardinals Macelli and Vendhem late into the night in their quest to find out where the real Pope is, whether dead or alive, in Chapter Nine, Episode One


Catholic PewPOINT
In Monday's commentary, editor Michael Cain questioned how anyone in their right mind, especially Catholics, cannot see the implosion that is happening and why the nominal Novus Ordo Missae or NOM of Paul VI can never replace the eternal sacrifice. How far it has veered from that concept is apparent for the NOM that was foisted on the faithful over three decades ago has greatly affected the principle of Lex orandi, lex credendi. Whether neo-Catholics want to admit it or not, the religion that has risen from the ashes of Vatican II is not Roman Catholic but rather the religion of Baal! He pointed out that 33 Years of novelty and innovation, heresy and herding, ransacking and ravaging the disciples and disciplines of the Church is quite enough, thank you. It is time to put a stop to the nom de guerre that is the New Order...the New Mass...the Novus Ordo Missae...the NOM. For the sake of all that is holy, he prays and encourages a return to the Tried and True! Tridentine True! He explained in his editorial The 'New Order' is in Total Disorder!.

On the BattleLine
Monday Atila Sinke Guimar„es weighed in with his perspective of events last week and over the weekend which might very well have flown beneath the radar of the major media. Often many do not see the 'game' that is really being played. The USCCB Fall Conference in Washington D.C. has just finished up. Despite the saccharine spin the American Bishops tried to put on the new revisions, the truth is the Charter of Dallas' contritional tone has changed to a more defiant tone of pharasaic indignation as these chameleon American prelates, in scrambling to blame somebody, are spinning out of control with excuses. To take the heat off, they're trying to set up an expiatory goat to butt heads with. Meanwhile in Brazil, subversive political and ecclesiastical leaders are leaning farther left in pointing an accusatory finger at the U.S. He explained in The Blame Game.
"Qui legit, intelligat"
Father Louis Campbell cited the joy that is expressed in the Epistle and Gospel for the Proper of the 26th Sunday After Pentecost. That joy is in knowing that no matter what the modern Church might change or say, we can be assured that God will not abandon us, but protect His Church through the guidance of the Mother of the Church - the Blessed Virgin Mary who will never steer us wrong for she is the Woman of the Apocalypse. God provides for us as He did for Mary the "two wings of the great eagle" so that we too may fly away into the wilderness of prayer, to return to the bosom of Holy Mother Church in order to protect us from the wiles of satan, allowing us to refresh before engaging in battle again against the principalities and wickedness on high. That was the essence of his sermon "The Wings of an Eagle.
Doctors of the Church
The sixteenth Doctor in this chronological series on the Doctors of the Church is the illustrious ornament of the Anglo-Saxon Church and its first historian. Considered the Father of English History, he was the first to date events as in the "Year of Our Lord" - Anno Domini (A.D.). Considered a Father of the Church, this man is one of the few among the saints who is called Venerable. He was the Benedictine Saint Bede the Venerable.

       "The denial of Truth is just as fatal to the mind as the denial of light is to vision. Truth in its fullness is not easy to attain, even if one does admit its existence. To explore Truth in all its complexity there must come moments when we confess ignorance, when we frankly admit that we were mistaken or bigoted, or prejudiced. These admissions are painful, but they actually enrich character just as much as all approximations to falsehood forfeit it."              Bishop Fulton J. Sheen
