    ADVENT - "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel"
      The Immaculate Conception paves the way for the Coming of the Lord

      December 8th is the Double of the First Class Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The dogma of the Immaculate Conception was proclaimed by Pope Pius IX on December 8, 1854, as depicted in the painting of the Pope declaring the dogma. Following this glorious feast, Advent is observed in earnest as the Church prepares for the Coming of the One conceived by Holy Ghost in the womb of the Immaculate one. In preparation, we observe the Ember Days on Wednesday, December 17, Friday, December 19, and Saturday December 20.

    Traditional Insights
    Mario Derksen pulls no punches as he documents the Newchurch's relentless, blatant and blasphemous efforts to destroy Fatima and its importance in Church annals for, like any criminal, they must destroy the evidence or else be caught for the deceiving liars they are and their agenda which is, pure and simple, dictated by the prince of the world - the winged warrior of all evil who directs the obliteration of the beautiful Fatima basilica so that the most mundane monstrosities of the new age can be erected to all the gods who serve at the altar of lucifer. Mario outlines how this subterfuge has been able to gain legs as he explains in his column Finishing with Fatima - How much the New Church hates Fatima
    On the BattleLine
    Atila Sinke Guimar„es points out that no one should be surprised by the progressivists' attempts to dishonor and discredit the message of Our Lady in Fatima. If only we had kept better vigil, we would have seen well before now how they were so methodically blurring the Message of Fatima...back when the influential Modernist Yves Congar so deftly undermined Our Lady and the importance of Fatima. Cardinals Sodano and Ratzinger fell in line with no resistance from one of Congar's biggest fans - Karol Wojtyla, and so the subterfuge continues - from fabricating the Third Secret to turning this Catholic shrine into a sterile, circular pagan interfaith center. Atila provides three major steps of why, how and who in his article The Progressivist Challenge to Fatima

    Echoes of True Catholicism
    Dr. Marian Horvat provides a lengthy but absolutely necesary column that every person in your family, office and anywhere else - whether they are Catholic or not - should read if they think everyone's going to Heaven. If they believe this heresy, then they're in for a mighty big shock. Marian's article incorporates a letter from a soul in hell who, through a dream, relates the eternal regrets one has when they have been damned, entitled "Letter from Beyond." The article should touch hardened hearts and wake up so many how important the holy Faith is and how poorly all have been catechized. Please read it before it's too late for you. Along with the words, the magnificent paintings Marian presents clearly define that a picture is worth a thousand words. This article will truly move you to think of hell now so you won't have to experience it later. Americans Think Hell Exists, But No One Goes There .
    Quid Dicit Scriptura
    With the addition of Jacob Michael we can now provide the reader a a steady diet of Catholic Apologia in order to counteract Protestant friends who are great at quoting Sacred Scripture and even better at taking it out of context and interpreting according to how they view it, not on what the Church has always directed in discerning that which the Holy Ghost has inspired as Divine Revelation. The whole question comes down to "What saith the Scriptures?" and that is the title of Jacob's column - in Latin, of course: "Quid Dicit Scriptura?", with passages taken from the Latin Vulgate Douay Rheims Roman Catholic version. He continues with this issue his multi-part installment on "The Gospel is the Kingdom" with part four The Promise Fulfilled
    Gabriel's Clarion
    Gabriel Garnica sounds the clarion on the sheisters who, in order to peddle the "new, improved, streamlined" religion of Vatican II, must sell off any semblance of the Tried and True Faith. In order to do this, they market the new religion like a toaster while at the same time wholesaling Catholicism in order to be rid of all that was held holy and unchangeable for two millennia. Sadly, these flim-flam matchstick Modernists forget that their souls, and countless others being scammed, are being scorched - as in 'toast' - as Gabriel explains in his column When the Faith becomes a 'Toaster!'
    Pro Life Prescriptions
    Dr. Frank Joseph's column this month rips asunder the seamless garment theology of the New Order Bishops who have no intention of honoring the 5th Commandment or upholding their Apostolic duties. He cites reasons why, if they will not obey God, then we must not obey them. We should work to have them ousted and put in holy men who will have the welfare of their flocks' souls first and foremost. To make sure more souls are not scandalized, the good bishops must excommunicate anyone who refuses what Holy Mother Church demands beginning with the eviction of those who stubbornly uphold the "Party of Death" as Frank explains in We must rip apart the Bishops' 'seamless garment' theory!
    Rod Pead, editor of Britain's Christian Order offers a scary preamble of the inevitable coming conclave and the blurred line between conservative and liberal. The facts are that there are no more 'conservative' or orthodox red-hats left. Ergo, the next conclave will surely elect a man to sit on the Chair of Peter even far worse than John Paul II if indeed that were possible. We encourage you to read his past editorials for they offer great insight for all true Catholics, especially in Britain. The great horror is that so few realize the damage being done. Instead they are being led to the slaughter by these agents of lucifer as Rod documents in Making John Paul III
    Doctors of the Church
    The thirty-first Doctor in this chronological series on the Doctors of the Church was born in France, yet reached every corner of the world with his works and influence. His piety, zeal and energy caught the eye of no less than the Pope himself who made him one of the youngest bishops to rule the See of Geneva. Along with another saint, he founded the Visitandines. He was known for his gentleness and meekness, and his holiness so well known that he was the first person to be beatified in the new St. Peter's Basilica. In 1923 he was officially proclaimed "Patron Saint of the Catholic Press." This meek warrior of the word was Saint Francis de Sales.
    The entire novel now on-line!
        All 107 episodes!
    Due to popular demand, we have made the entire novel available to all on-line. Now you no longer have to wonder what will happen to the main principals of the Resistance. Those who think the action has been pretty intense so far...well, you ain't seen nothing yet! In the next 36 hours in this novel, the action and suspense will be off the charts! And so, to keep you in suspense no longer, we release the Entire Book on-line for all to read - all six parts, 107 episodes. Your wait is over! Now you can read from Chapter Eleven, episode seven through to the stunning conclusion in Chapter Sixteen, episode eight or you can read from the Prologue on. Enjoy and please share it with others for as you read, you will see how this inspired work has fast become reality, right off the daily pages of world news whether it's Reuters or ZENIT. It's happening! As 2004 grows closer, the events in White Smoke, Black Fire! become less and less fiction. The very occurences in the novel are ever increasing and being replicated in real life daily - from mounting terrorism, to the ecumaniacal bent of the Vatican II agenda, from the eradication of all Christian values to the elimination of God from society, from the glorification of vice to the persecutions and trials of the small remnant who resist, remaining loyal to the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church. While all around so many are being duped and the systems they have trusted by placing their confidence in man are imploding, satan mounts an all-out assault of all that is holy in a last desperate act before he has his head crushed. So also in the novel. Be forewarned and pray the next Pope will have the courage of the novel's Pope Clement XV. Synopsis to date.

    The Germs of G.I.R.M.
    Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey has completed his excellent, thorough critique of the latest release of General Instruction of the Roman Missal by modern Rome. We encourage you to read the entire 77 installments of his comments which reinforce what the Church has always taught pertaining to the propitiatory nature of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. What has been promulgated over the past 40 years is truly G.I.R.M. warfare on the sacred and Holy of holies as Tom clearly points out in his eye-opening magnificent completed work The Germs of G.I.R.M.
    Catholicism and the State
    Dr. Droleskey writes on the causes and effects of the inherent problems existent today in the Church and the State. To combat the folly of religious liberty and the whole charade of separation of Church vs. State, the only concluding solution is the uncompromising Proclamation of the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ as exercised dauthoritatively by the Roman Catholic Church and the immediate and necessary Consecration of Russia to Mary's Immaculate Heart as Tom points out in his series Catholicism and the State
    Father Moderator separates the wheat from the chaff with no-holds barred candidness in keeping the faithful abreast daily with feedback and comments of all that is happening in the Church today. Besides the best available list of Latin Masses throughout the country, Father tells it like it is, never pulling punches in punching holes in all the charade that is the Vatican II church as you'll see in Traditio.com

      For those who truly want to delve deeper into what the Faith teaches and what past Sovereign Pontiffs have decreed, we recommend for your vital reading to better KNOW THE FAITH in order to KEEP THE FAITH, pertinent Encyclicals and Papal Bulls which put to the lie what is being promulgated today by the Vatican II church. We strongly encourage you to read these to understand how today the modern church is in Apostasy when compared to what had always been taught by Holy Mother Church and enforced and warned as most grievous by previous Pontiffs as you'll see in CREDO & CULTURE

    Preserving the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church
      We invite you to find out for yourself the truth as we present a compendium portal of documents on the Faith in all aspects. For thumnail descriptions and links to the other sections of this issue see:

       "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
