    "Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you; and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you."
    Matthew 5: 44
Thursday and Friday are the Traditional Feasts of St. John Damascene and St. John of Capistrano, Doctors of the Church.



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 Lenten 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

"Eternal Father, we offer Thee the precious blood of Thy Divine Son Jesus in union with all the True Masses said throughout the world today, for the holy souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal Church, in my home and in my family. Amen."
Prayer of St. Gertrude


Readers might call this issue a heavy "Dose of Droleskey" as we bring you three different features by this respected teacher and defender of the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church. With this issue we introduce a new series in which Tom illustrates through impeccable sources what the passage " Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar's; and to God, the things that are God's" truly means and why the whole concept of separation of Church and State has been blurred by those whose goal is to destroy Catholicism as it has been known for nearly two millennia.

Catholicism and the State
In the first installment of this series, Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey lays out the various concepts of states which have cropped up over the centuries to erode the true concept of the Christian State. There is much confusion about separation of Church and State and that has contributed to dismissing into oblivion the necessity for the Social Kingship of Christ. Tom identifies and defines three of these states in Part One The Pagan, Liberal and Socialist State


Christ or chaos
The Late Cardinal Kung Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey points out the persecution of one group - the SSPX - who are in no way in schism yet intimidated fiercely and another group who are in definite schism and heresy, yet are treated with kid gloves, undermining the valiant efforts of the great late Cardinal Kung who fought to keep the True Underground Church alive in China against the false Chinese Patriotic Church. Tom has questions that must be answered by Rome and by those supporting postconciliar policies. Tom explains in There is Schism and there is Schism
The Germs of G.I.R.M.
In this issue we bring you part sixty-five of Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey's well-received, thought-provoking series on G.I.R.M. warfare as he continues analyzing and commenting on the ambiguity and errors in the General Instruction of the Roman Missal Tom focuses on paragraphs 220 through 244 which continue to treat the whole issue of concelebration which in the Novus Ordo has taken away the true meaning and role of the "alter Christus" and replaced it with "altar Christi in the move to concelebration where the line is blurred so much that Joe and Sally church goers think they're concelebrating as well. In the innovative novelty world of the Novus Ordo there is ConCelebration Confusion

    FOCUS
    Gary L. Morella, one of the most astute of Roman Catholic watchdogs in exposing the rot within the postconciliar church takes on one of the larger neo-Catholic organs - the National Catholic Register, specifically a commentary written by a J.P. Zmirak. Gary points out that Zmirak is confusing the role of Church and State. While Bush is deserving of criticism, what about John Paul II? Gary asks about the destruction of countless souls through a deconstruction of the faith by the very men this Pope appointed and his geo-political humanistic pandering to man, rather than to work toward establishing the Social Kingship of Christ. See Patriotism, Papolotry and Passivism toward Perdition
    On the BattleLine
    Click on this picture of the Sistine Chapel for a larger view Atila Sinke Guimarães calls into question why John Paul II's "poetry" is getting such rave reviews for, when one peals off the layers, his preoccupation with nudity and evolution is troubling to say the least and the problem is that most neo-Catholics will take whatever he writes, including his Roman Triptych as gospel and be influenced thus into further diluting the One True Faith through this dumbing-down process in which they are subjected as Atila points out in his column Papal Poetry
    "Qui legit, intelligat"
    In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Third Sunday of Lent, he points out the true heritage of all Christians. Yet is is the Zionist lies that have plunged our nation into war at the beckoning of Sharon and his cohorts among the world's leaders who are moving towards a New World Order. "A kingdom divided against itself shall be brought to desolation, and house upon house shall fall." So also those who plot evil and destruction and do satan's bidding in the world and in the postconciliar church. We must pray that, like those possessed in Sunday's Gospel, Christ will expel the devil lest the evil become even more wicked. Father explains in "He shall save His people from their sins"

    "Feed My sheep"
    With Bush's war underway, Doctrina reveals prophets of the near past who could see what we have become as a civilization. We still have a free will, but our choices must be narrowed to only one direction: the narrow way; for that is the only way to save the soul. Those who fear for their physical and material welfare will feel the brunt of God's wrath. To those who fear for their soul, there is still time to make amends, but not much time for we know not the day nor the hour even though there has been a plethora of signs that we are in the End Times as explained in So You Don't Believe We're On The Eve of Destruction?


    Traditional Insights
    Mario Derksen continues his multi-part series on the controversy that surrounds "the illicit Episcopal Ordinations of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre." He responds to four more objections. Fourthly, he points out that a person must be guilty of a charged offense with unmitigated proof; Fifthly, Mario emphasizes that one cannot change the rules (Canon Law) in mid-stream; Sixthly, Mario explains that just because the Pope says there is "no state of necessity" does not mean there isn't. seventh objection Mario replies to those who give the Pope more power and authority than he rightly deserves for he is infallible only when speaking ex cathedra which, coincidentally over the past 40 years is, for all purposes: nada. Mario lays out the logic that refutes neo-Catholic claims in part seven of his series with the second of Objections and Replies: True Papal Authority and the Necessity of Keeping the Faith Alive.
    Shears and Tears of a Lamb
    With the Ides of March having just passed, Catharine Lamb responds to the vitriol that has erupted against Mel Gibson and his dad Hutton, both strong Traditional Catholics. She engages one reporter in particular with a firm "Et tu, Touché " in answering the writer's titled question "Does Mel Gibson have a Jewish Problem?" with "Does Bill Berkowitz have a Catholic Problem?" Catherine exposes the underbelly of the writer's intent with her column Provoking passions over "The Passion".
    Doctors of the Church
    The twenty-second Doctor in this chronological series on the Doctors of the Church was a man who the devil definitely did not want to become a priest, let alone a Dominican. He was the only saint of the Church called "Great" who was not a Sovereign Pontiff. He was part and parcel of the fruits of the century of saints and took an integral part in the 14th Ecumenical Council. He defended his pupil once called "the dumb ox" against all kinds of calumny and subterfuge, and always in charity. This Universal Doctor continued right up to his death with teaching the Faith even though he suffered in his later years from Alzheimer's well before it was even called that. He was Saint Albert the Great.
    Appreciating the Precious Gift of our Faith
    We continue with our catechesis series from My Catholic Faith, focusing on the seven little ways towards spiritual perfection which everyone can do - no exceptions. This is especially pertinent during this holy season of Lent and we'd all be wise to learn from the youngest and most recent Doctor of the Church St. Therese of the Child Jesus by doing the ordinary in an extraordinary way and always with Love. See the 285th installment: General Means of Perfection.
    White Smoke, Black Fire!
    In the third episode of Chapter Ten of The Shrouding, the Legion of the Basilisk and the traitorous Camerlengo are furious over the foiled scheme of finding where the heroic Riage Benziger had hid the Pope. The traitor Fr. Urazzi discovered where, but did not live to betray the Holy Father for the resisters had arrived just in time. Now the search intensifies. Who will find the Pope first? The tension builds in Part IV, Chapter Ten, Episode Three.

    NOT!
    Editor Michael Cain points out that one day of Prayer once or twice a year, or one minute of prayer every thousand years - in order that we might be in alignment with the numbers - is nothing but a bandaid on a malignant cancer. To hold fast to one council and ignore the wisdom of 20 others or to listen to what one, two and three popes have proclaimed over the past 40 years while ignoring the wisdom of the 260 who preceded them...is an insult to the Almighty and an indictment against us for allowing such malleability and lukewarmness to permeate our minds, hearts, souls, and actions. We all will have to account for our folly as he explains in his commentary There is no quick fix!
    Exspectans exspectavimus Ecclesia Dei
    Bishop Richard Williamson responds to those who smugly think two plus two don't have to add up to four anymore. The sum of the whole does not add up, leaving holes in not just some key truths. However if any truth is compromised, the entire equation is convoluted. His Excellency provides a parable of the "Delegation" trying to force "Back Ward" to accept the New Math. Of course he can't, just as any faithful Catholic cannot accept the Newisms of Vatican II as the Bishop points out in his letter Nice Rome Not Enough.
    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. The fact that these "slaves to the Democrats" bishops are gunshy to the truths of Holy Mother Church, refuse to speak in absolutes, and mete out the just punishments that would not only save thousands of the innocent unborn, but millions of souls, should be enough to raise the outrage of all Catholics. By following the insanity of bishops cited in his, one has to realize they are not Catholic, but anathema! Dr. Frank documents this in If These Men are Actual Shepherds, Pity the Poor Sheep!
    Echoes of True Catholicism
    Dr. Marian Therese Horvat shares some uplifting accounts of the saints on the power of prayer and the virtue of perseverance, manifested in one whom Marian has been corresponding with. She outlines the five points that pinpoint perseverance of prayer and the infallibility of Christ's words, "Ask and you shall receive" She urges all to turn to Our Lady of Good Success for - what else - success. Marian points out how much more will He open the door for us when we ask for great and noble things like the souls in Purgatory and the liberty and exaltation of Holy Mother Church in these times of abandonment of the True Faith in her article A Lesson in Perseverance in Prayer
    Father forgive them..."
    Mark Fellows reveals the underbelly of the Arlington Diocese to show that the problem not only lies with the top shepherd who refused to recognize the undeniable, documented truth provided by Father James Haley, a priest trying to be what he was called to do: be a priest. The cover-up by Bishop Paul Loverde is not an isolated case but symptomatic of practically every diocese in the United States; more proof of bad seed stifling the wheat as Mark documents in The Outsider


    The Twelve Promises of the Sacred Heart
    We continue 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 that should encourage more devotion to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus as we continue with Part Eighteen and the Eleventh Promise - "Those who propagate this Devotion shall have their name written in My Heart, and it Shall never be effaced" in The Eleventh Promise - part one.

       "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
