May the Heavenly Mystery, O Lord, inflame us with the fire of that love by which Saint Teresa, Thy Virgin, offered herself to Thee as a victim of charity for mankind. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.

Echoes of True Catholicism |
Dr. Marian Therese Horvat, on the feast of her patron Saint - the Little Flower of Lisieux, shows the great contrast between the ideals of Therese of the Child Jesus to the embrace of Mammon today by a vast segment of society, even high society. What was prim and proper of the appropos is today considered gauche while the blasphemous buffoons of beastiality batter down the bastions of decency, parading pridefully in royal dress for all the world to see and revere. The entire civilization is askew and Marian puts her finger on the pulse of what's wrong in her column The Debasement of Knighthood .
Christ or chaos
Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey continues his installments of his G.I.R.M. Warfare series, the "Germs of G.I.R.M." He points out, through his commentary of articles 106 through 110 of the new General Instruction on the Roman Missal that the "revision" only leaves more room for abuse and the demasculinization of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost as well as the celebrant - the alter Christus. Such is the agenda of the revolutionists as Tom exposes the ambiguity, penetrating to the core the charade the liturgists pose in his 51st installment Demasculinity of the Sacred .
"Qui legit, intelligat"
Today we bring you the Sunday Sermon Father Louis Campbell gave on Trinity Sunday this year. We focus on this one because he references the upcoming Mission Sunday and the grave compromises coming out of the Holy See which does not bode well for further conversions to the One, True Faith in an apparent veering away from the unchangeable, infallible dogma of Extra Ecclesia nulla sulla "Outside the Church there is no salvation." Considering this Feast of Saint Therese of Lisieux, whose missionary zeal and tender, loving heart would be horrified by the non-missionary mentality of the post-conciliar revolutionists, and on the eve of the Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi whose whole purpose was to rebuild Christ's Church because of its moral decay. Today we are in similar, even worse times and it is left to the faithful remnant to rebuild His Church in the third millennium.as Father points out in his homily "Are you saved, brother?!"
Liturgy of the Saints
Today is the Traditional Double Feast of the Little Flower, Saint Therese of the Child Jesus. This holy virgin of Lisieux, France, whose simple faith spoke volumes, is the most recently named Doctor of the Church, the only one from the 19th Century. For more, see St. Therese of Lisieux.
"Father, forgive them..."
Gary Morella lends his orthodox comments to an alarming situation in the Diocese of Manchester, New Hampshire where a priest has admitted a homosexual affair. Christ has said, forgive the sinner, hate the sin. But then it depends on what kind of sin according to the Bishop of that see, John B. McCormack who doesn't see it as that big a deal since the disturbed priest did not have sex with a minor! Now this sorry lot of lackey bishops who are truly spineless are qualifying sins according to the political correctness of the times. A sin is still a sin whether committed by oneself or with others, by commission or omission. The saddest and most scandalous aspect of all this is the Bishop's total nonchalance. What's the big deal? We're sure God is not saying that and neither is Gary comments about an AP wire service article. Gary weighs in with true Catholic teaching on this in Spin and Cover.
Requiescat in Pace

Rosary will be at 7 p.m. Friday, October 4 at Our Lady Help of Christians Church, 9621 Bixby in Garden Grove, California with the Requiem Mass there on Saturday at 10 a.m.
Our Lord is so very merciful. He permits us weak vessels of clay enough time here in this vale of tears to learn how stupid we have been in the past, to see how others cooperated with the graces made available to them to see clearly the state of the Church and of the world. This gift of divine mercy is ineffable and gratuitous, thoroughly unmerited.
