Specific Prayers of Fatima

O Jesus, it is for Your Love, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Ejaculation taught by Our Lady at Fatima to the three children, in which she encouraged them: "Say many times and especially when you make sacrifices."

FEATURED IN TODAY'S ISSUE:

Pro Life Prescriptions
In this column today, Dr. Frank Joseph gives a final, desperate plea to Catholics everywhere. It's up to the Catholic vote whether the Sanctity of Life will have a foothold or not. In a short, factual plea Dr. Frank reminds for the umpteenth time that to vote Democratic is to endorse the culture of death and enable the Holocaust in the Womb to continue. To vote Republican is the only way, outside of prayer, to ensure the innocent babies will even have a chance for if the GOP can regain the Senate, they will have the votes to offset the sinful actions of men like supposedly 'Catholics' Tom Daschle, Pat Leahy, Ted Kennedy, et al. who have, for so long had their way in mocking God's Laws. There is NOTHING on this Earth as important as saving human life...except saving souls. By voting the pro-aborts out of office you can do both as he emphasizes in his column An Urgent Message to All Catholics
Shears and Tears of a Lamb
Catharine Lamb shares with the reader her own personal experiences in the Novus Ordo church and why, in that setting, the Church Militant has been so muted despite the fact that the battle rages on for souls as satan seeks to divide within. Casualties have taken their toll, but even in the grief of a Traditional Requiem Mass, the love for the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church gives one hope and faith that truth will win out and neo-Catholics will finally come to their senses before they are totally lobotomized by Newchurch as she explains in her column Notes from the Trenches.
 Exspectans exspectavimus Ecclesia Dei
Today we bring you interesting news from Bishop Richard Williamson on a Congress that took place a few weeks ago in Paris in which key members of the Society of Saint Pius X met to pore over all the documents of Vatican II in order to better deal with proposals offered by Rome for reunification. As the Bishop points out, it is vital to know Vatican II inside and out in order to deal with the liberals on a level table in the "on-going diplomatic war-dance with the churchmen presently in Rome." If Rome wants to "dialogue" the Society wants to make sure the liberals cannot masquerade the True Faith and Rubrics through ambiguities, half-truths and agendas that contradict the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church. He explains in his letter to the Traditional List which we reprint here, Vatican II Congress: Vatican II under the Magnifying Glass
SIMPLY SHEEN: Treasures from Bishop Sheen
The late, great Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen makes it so simple that we have dubbed this series: "SIMPLY SHEEN". In today's issue, the good bishop pointed well before the advent of the computer and internet - the high technology of today - the concept of memory, something that stays with us all our lives and he puzzles at why so many want to forget because memories can carry guilt for what we did or didn't do. He strives to remind all that God forgives and forgets if we only let Him. Bishop Sheen explains in Before you try to forget, remember God's Mercy .
Liturgy of the Saints
Today is a Ferial Day in which the Mass of the preceding Sunday - in this case the 22nd Sunday After Pentecost - is said. Ferial means no assigned saint. Today is the Traditional Feast of Saint Anthony Mary Claret, founder of the Claretians Order and the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart. After serving in various areas of South America, he became the bishop of Cuba. For more, see Saint Anthony Mary Claret.
The Rosary of Mary: our most powerful weapon. October is Our Lady's month, the month of the Holy Rosary. It is also the month we remember her victory for all of Christendom at Lepanto and the 85th Anniversary of the final apparition at Fatima, the day the sun danced. Truly October is Our Lady's time, the month of the Holy Rosary. Pray for the unborn and that abortion will not be compromised by the political expediency of the times where misguided prelates mistakenly join the Death Penalty with the Abortion issue. The Catholic Church condemns abortion, not capital punishment. Pray that the flocks will not be further deceived. Click on the Rosary button to recite the full Rosary in either English or Latin.

For the 15 Promises to those who recite Mary's Holy Rosary, see PROMISES OF THE ROSARY

13 Days until you'll have the opportunity to uphold the Sanctity of Life. See our special Pro-Life Articles below:

Election Reflections
With the issue of abortion as the primary, major and only issue as far as Catholics are concerned, Mario Derksen lays out exactly what every Catholic - regardless of their affiliation to a political party - MUST do! When it comes to any candidate, there is only one issue!!! You MUST vote for the one who is the most pro-life. If neither are, DON'T VOTE for either one! To vote for a known pro-abort candidate, whether you think so or not, is truly being an accomplice to murder. That is a mortal sin. If you don't believe so, read his article and see the obvious, graphic "Holocaust of the Womb" and ask yourself if you won't be held accountable to God for enabling such horror by your vote?!! Mario explains quite clearly and graphically honest in his feature "Election Reflections" which we invite you to read at his Catholic Insights site in his column Election Reflections


Pro Life Prescriptions
Wednesday, Dr. Frank Joseph addressed an open letter to the bishops of the United States. Whether they read it or not, the truths and consequences inherent in his column illustrate only too well how far our shepherds have fallen and why Roe v. Wade still rules the roost in America. In the spirit of St. Teresa of Avila, Dr. Frank gets down to basics and respectfully warns the bishops that if they don't alert their flocks to the imminent dangers of condoning terrorism in the womb by voting for pro-abort candidates, the everlasting terror of hell may await not only those who refuse to obey God's laws, but those who administer them as well. What good are the Canons and tenets of the Faith if those entrusted to uphold the unchangeable teachings of the Church are more fearful of offending the enemies of God rather than upholding God's holy laws? He lovingly, but firmly emphasizes to them that if they do not do something, "let the blood of the innocents be on your hands and heads." Strong words that are needed to roust these lackards off their duffs as he entreats the bishops to truly be the successors of the apostles in his column A Final Warning Plea to the Bishops
