Sacred Deposit of Faith |
Herein you'll find an overview of the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church, consisting of Divine Revelation in Sacred Scripture, all the major ecumenical councils, the Baltimore Catechism, the catechetical teachings of Trent, papal proclamations, and St. Thomas Aquinas' Summa Theologica.
No study is complete without Divine Revelation of the Word of God contained in the Sacred Scripture of the Old and New Testaments and passed down through Tradition with the Latin Vulgate and translated to the Douay-Rheims edition which is the most loyal to those traditions. Therefore, we provide the full Bible available on line.
It is vital to know the Faith in order to keep the Faith and knowing it entails knowing what has been handed down after Saint John's last word in the Book of Apocalypse. It is called Tradition and these Traditions were formed and formulated as necessary for belief by the Fathers of the Church and Bishops in the gatherings of special synods called General or Ecumenical Councils.
Many were weaned on the Baltimore Catechism which were the truths put simply and concretely in black and white. Those reared on this Catechism know their Faith and, when all else fails, we strongly urge you to return to the roots of what the Roman Catholic Church teaches without ambiguity - without relativism - without pouring through 800 pages from cover to cover.
Teachings of Trent
To truly understand the simple absolute truths of the Roman Catholic Faith, one needs to go back to the unchangeable doctrine that was defined and set in stone by the counter-reformation 19th Ecumenical Council in the Tridentine mountains of northern Italy in the longest council in Church history: the Council of Trent
These are compiled proclamations by Sovereign Pontiffs from before the Council of Trent through Vatican II. In includes the landmark documents Unam Sanctam, Quo Primum, Pascendi Dominici Gregis, the Oath Against Modernism, and Mortalium Animos to name only a few.
The Ottaviani Intervention
In our effort to illustrate how Catholicism has been so protestantized and the truth kept from the faithful, we present the entire Ottaviani Intervention, a lengthy and critical letter respectfully submitted to Pope Paul VI by Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani and Cardinal Antonio Bacci in an effort to stave off the revolution and uphold the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church.
The Great Sacrilege
We present the entire book on-line. This picks up where the Ottaviani Intervention left off and the author Father James F. Wathen, O.S.J. has granted permission to publish this work first published by Tan Books in 1972. We urge you to read it because everything he wrote 30 years ago is backed by the solid depositum fidei - the Sacred Deposit of the Faith and still holds true.
Defending Catholic Truth and Tradition
A seven-part treatise and critique of the Pontifical Biblical Commission's document The Hebrew People and its Holy Scriptures in the Christian Bible. This is a comprehensive response by Atila Sinke Guimar„es, translated by Dr. Marian Therese Horvat, to a document that proposes changes in doctrines and new anathemas.
Christ or chaos
Few have traversed the nation as much as Dr. Tom Droleskey who continues to crusade for the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ with articles that lay out very clearly the true Catholic way of doing things at all times. No man can serve two masters as Tom points out in his columns. It's either Christ or chaos.
On the BattleLine
Atila Sinke Guimar„es, a foremost authority on the causes and effects of Vatican II and at the forefront in identifying the charades being proffered by the bishops and curia, exposes the revolution, providing proof that we must all truly stand with the Church Militant On the BattleLine.
Michael Cain touches numerous veins with his weekly no-nonsense, uncompromising editorials which often raise the blood pressure of many readers in his efforts to motivate Catholics to truly know their Faith and defend the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church. He gets to the pulse in his commentaries.
Mario Derksen, coordinator of Catholic Insight, exhibits a wisdom and understanding far beyond his youthful age as he provides syllogistic arguments to illustrate how documents coming out of Rome are in contradiction to true Catholic teaching as he points out in his columns.
"Qui legit, intelligat"
Beginning in October we will be bringing you weekly sermons by Father Louis J. Campbell to assist Traditionalists in their spiritual journey. The title for these Sunday Sermons is taken from Our Lord's most revealing and pertinent words in Matthew 24: vs. 15, "he that readeth, let him understand" - words that have much more significance in these times of grave crisis.
Echoes of True Catholicism
One of the more respected experts on medieval history and Catholic culture, Dr. Marian Therese Horvat illustrates the tried and true Catholic principles necessary in every walk of life in her columns.
"Feed My sheep"
Dr. Edward Ciaccio, who maintains Help The Bishops web site, bestows on a regular basis articles that will cause one to pause and ask if the shepherds are shepherding in his proficient columns.
Pro Life Prescriptions
Dr. Frank Joseph, a Catholic physician and long one of the leading crusaders for the Sanctity of Life, keeps his pulse on the political landscape, identifying the landmines that threaten the life of Christ's most innocent ones - the unborn. Dr. Frank monitors the situation in his columns.
Shears & Tears of a Lamb How do the faithful feel about what is happening within their beloved Church? Mom and wife Catharine Lamb shares what many are afraid to say in her periodic columns.
We provide columns by various writers who do not regularly contribute material for The DAILY CATHOLIC. These journalists are not affiliated with this publication, however we include them since their views support the Traditionalist viewpoint.
"An impure word spoken in jest may prove a scandal to others, and sometimes a word of double meaning, said in a witty way, does more harm than a word openly impure." Saint Alphonsus Liguori
In this series we feature timely essays from various Traditional sources that reliably deal with the state of the world or Church in 2002 and how the Truths and Traditions have been so greatly compromised by the Revolution.
Exspectans exspectavimus Ecclesia Dei
This on-going series incorporates various articles of orthodoxy, upholding the Latin Mass (hence the Latin title of "for long we have waited for fulfillment of John Paul II's motu proprio "Ecclesia Dei" and Pontifical Commission of the same name). It instructed the bishops to make The Tridentine Mass readily available to their flocks. And still we wait while so many of the faithful wallow in the confusion of a Novus Ordo that in no way resembles the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
"By their fruits you shall know them"
Articles that clearly show the difference between good fruits and bad fruits and the fact a good tree cannot bear bad fruit. Because we have had bad fruits from Vatican II, then Vatican II could not have been a good tree and therefore needs to be eradicated and generate new buds for good trees stemming from the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church as practiced up until the auto-demolition of Vatican II.
The Fatima File
This series follows the consequences to the world and Russia for the failure to faithfully follow Our Lady's specific messages at Fatima. Despite the spin the post-conciliar Church has put on the fulfillment of Fatima and the completion of the Third Secret, common sense, history and current events prove that the mission of Fatima has not been faithfully carried out.
