When is enough enough? That is one question editor Michael Cain asks as the madness rushes out of control in the world and the Vatican II church. Why is it so many are heading for the precipice at breakneck speed and don't know how to apply the brakes? Could it be because so few - including hierarchy and laity - truly know their Faith? And if they do know it, then the crime is compounded all the more for their complicit part in the charade. It is a comedy of errors that finds few laughing at the pratfalls, twists and turns and slapstick that has been applied in the Novus Ordo 'Messes' as Fr. Moderator of Traditio.com has aptly coined the phrase. Cain is reminded of the good times and asks whatever happened to them and to love of the Lord's precepts. Just like Laurel and Hardy did so many times, so also today the newChurch and a corrupt society has found themselves in Another Fine Mess!.
During this summer hiatus, we recommend one of the best no-nonsense sites for Traditional Catholics is Traditio.com where Father Moderator keeps 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
Proper of the Mass for TRINITY SUNDAY
"Qui legit, intelligat"
In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Trinity Sunday, he reveals what so many do not see: the panreligious bent of the conciliar church and John Paul II. If ever it was more obvious it was in his letter released last year on Pentecost for Mission Sunday in which not only did John Paul II leave out any reference whatsoever to the necessary Sacrament of Baptism - which is vital for salvation - but misrepresented the Sacred Scriptures by omitting our Lord's absolute and definitive words in Matthew 28: 19 to His words "baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost" - This is also the surest sign in Scriptures of the Holy Trinity. Yet, in the ensuing Mission Letter of John Paul II below Father's sermon, one can see less and less reference to the Triune Divinity and more to "one God" in order to placate and include not just believers in Jesus Christ, but beyond the Reformation by appeasing pagan, Jew and atheist. If what John Paul II has written in his Mission Statement is true, then all the works of the holy saints, martyrs, popes and doctors of the Church, not to mention all members of the Church Militant were in vain and there was no need for the Crucifixion.
"Are you saved, brother?".
Proper for the Mass of the Second Sunday After Pentecost
In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for for the Sunday Within the Octave of Corpus Christi or the Second Sunday After Pentecost, he focuses on the beautiful compositions created by St. Thomas Aquinas which brings a rush to every true Catholic with such hymns as Panis Angelicus or Tantum Ergo or O Salutaris Hostia. Father dissects each verse of what the Angelic Doctor was inspired to write and reinforces how beautiful, right and just his words were not only for the feast of Corpus Christi, but for every day and all time. He points this out in his sermon Bread of Angels, made the Bread of Man
Proper for the Mass of the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul which supercedes the Third Sunday After Pentecost and the Within the Octave of the Sacred Heart
In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul which supercedes the Sunday Within the Octave of the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Third Sunday After Pentecost, he emphasizes that despite these unprecedented times when seemingly all is falling apart and questions abound because the Seat in Rome today no way resembles the Primacy of Peter, we must persevere just as St. Peter - the first Pope, and St. Paul, God's relentless warrior of the Word, did in, above all, keeping the Faith and adhering to all Christ had taught without compromise. If we do this, we too will be delivered out of the hand of the Herods of today as today's Epistle accounts Peter's deliverance - "and from all the expectations of the people of the Jews" for Christ's truths remain constant and unchanging, unlike the waffling and denial of His truths today such as the anathema that Jews no longer need to be converted as Father points out in
Pro Life Prescriptions
Dr. Frank Joseph's hails the 'tell-it-like-it-is' honesty of a man who not only deserves to be on the 11th Appelate Court but should seriously be considered by President George W. Bush as an ideal candidate for the Supreme Court. Roman Catholic pro-life Alabama Attorney General William Pryor has three things going for him: youthfulness, concern for all life from womb to the tomb, and something else that is so lacking today in America - especially in Washington D.C.: Honesty! Unlike other skittish court nominees, Pryor didn't skirt the issue, but spoke out strongly and clearly against abortion as unconstitutional as Dr. Frank describes in his column William Pryor: A Breath of Fresh Air!
White Smoke, Black Fire!
In the first episode of Chapter Eleven of The Shrouding, Stephen has emerged still in tact from his encounter with the Legion Swiss Guard. Suspecting the "Penultimate" is a tracing device being used by the Legion, he returns to the Sistine Chapel to have Cardinal Marcini check it out. Providence puts his mentor Cardinal Gregory Zachmunn in his path and Stephen pounces on the opportunity to share some precious moments with him and bring him up to date on the dangers lurking about as we discover new twists in Part IV, Chapter Eleven, Episode One.

PAPAL PROOF OF WHAT THE CHURCH TRULY TEACHES
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. It is obvious in CREDO & CULTURE
Appreciating the Precious Gift of our Faith
We continue with our catechesis series from My Catholic Faith, focusing on the means to communicate with God: Prayer. We focus on the objects and qualities of prayer, highlighting the four reasons why we pray: praise, thanksgiving, contrition and petition; and how we pray, and for whom, when, and where to pray. It is a compendium to live by and part and parcel of our Roman Catholic Faith, of which we can not do without. See the 287th installment: Prayer.
The Twelve Promises of the Sacred Heart
We complete, with this issue, the excellent work by Father Joseph McDonnell, S.J. Catholic Family News has given us permission to reprint following their publishing of it. It is a beautiful meditation and commentary of the devotion given to Saint Margaret Mary - "Apostle of Devotion to the Sacred Heart." It should encourage more devotion to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, especially in this month dedicated to His Most Sacred Heart in which we provide part two of the Eleventh Promise and the entire Twelfth Promise. We encourage you to see all Twelve Promises
The Fatima FILE
Ron and Kirstie Finster further delve into the interpretations of the Third Secret of Fatima with a most revealing follow-up article that further solidifies their contention of the interpretation that the "Bishop dressed in White" was not John Paul II - as modern Rome has tried to impose on the world in "wag the dog" fashion - but rather indeed Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre. If the version released was what Our Lady gave, then the Finsters' interpretation becomes even more plausible. With that a possibility, it would mean that certain highly influential prelates in the Vatican are working against Our Lady, and therefore against Christ and the Holy Church He founded. Everyone must, of course, always keep in mind what St. Paul encourages in 1 Thess. 5: 17-33. With that we present Part Two on The Third Secret of Fatima "Bullets and Arrows" and Apostasy in Rome
Mario Derksen continues his multi-part series on the controversy that surrounds "the illicit Episcopal Ordinations of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre." Mario responds to thirteen more objections as he shows clearly what the real issue is and the motivation behind Lefebre's actions, which were totally Roman Catholic in every sense. Mario responds to objections 12 through 23, debunking each objection with syllogistic logic and common sense, highlighting the ridiculousness of Objection 20 that those who publicly disobey the Pope are scandalizing others, when the truth is that the entire Vatican II foundation is crumbling because it is not rooted in solid Catholic Truth and Tradition. Mario further refutes several neo-Catholic myths in part eight of his series with the fourth of Objections and Replies: The salvation of souls is the issue!
Exspectans exspectavimus Ecclesia Dei
Bishop Richard Williamson responds to the rumors flying around about "re-incommunication" with modern Rome. He makes it manifestly clear that Conciliar 'Catholicism' is not Authentic Roman Catholicism and Traditional Catholics, indeed every Catholic, has a duty to resist and to engage in all out war against the Conciliarists for only one'll be left standing and, for the sake of millions and millions of souls, let us hope and pray that True Catholicism will win out. It cannot if the SSPX is compromised by the enemy camp of the New-church Vatican as the Bishop points out in his May Letter Two Rumors - and More to Come? .
Shears and Tears of a Lamb
Catharine Lamb is rightfully incensed, as should every concerned Authentic Roman Catholic, at the pandering to the concept of a One World Religion so manifest in the shameful tolerance for the Buddhist Religion that leaves not only contradictions from the highest echelons of the Church in Rome and America, but a whole lot of confusion among the faithful - all in direct opposition to God's mandate to Moses: "Thou shalt not have strange gods before Me." As we can readily see this so-called dialogue with pagan religions really translates to the Modernist mantra of methodism towards a Pan-Religion, the will of Lucifer. She details the destruction in her column Reading Between the Lines .
Doctors of the Church
The twenty-fifth Doctor in this chronological series on the Doctors of the Church was the second woman elevated to the status of Doctor. She was given the mystical gift of the stigmata, not visible to the world until her death. She convinced the Sovereign Pontiff to end the Babylon Exile in Avignon, France and fought against the Great Schism that began after the death of the Pope she talked into returning to Rome. She was a close counselor to Popes and worked many miracles, helping all no matter their walk in life or their state of life or health. Known as the "Powerful and Prayerful Persuader." She was Saint Catherine of Siena
To show how convoluted the wolves in shepherds' clothing are twisting the truths, we present the evidence where conversion of the sheep into the one true fold is no longer relevant. Rather, as Gary Morella comments on the totally humanist and worldly direction modern Rome has chosen to travel, what is important to the counterfeit church is "ecological conversion" and submission to mammon through "globalization" by pandering to the UN as the governing authority, whereas it should be the Church alone as the Authority of all souls as Christ commanded. It is so sad how so few can see the ecumaniacal bent of "John Paul the Great" which blinds so many to the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church and is alien to Apostolic tradition. See What are the sheep to think?.
