Month of the Communion of Saints
                                                             
Church Triumphant and Church Suffering and Church Militant

   November is the month we commemorate the meaning of the Communion of Saints when we observe All Saints and All Souls. God has created a cycle which guarantees a 'win-win' situation. We as the Church Militant here on earth offer Prayer and Praise to the Church Triumphant in Heaven in return for Intercession and Graces. In turn we offer Suffrages and Indulgences for the Poor Souls in Purgatory who comprise the Church Suffering and they offer Prayer and Gratitude, given Intercession and Relief by the Heavenly Saints. Thus all are members of the Mystical Body of Christ as Paul affirms in Romans 12: 5, "So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one, members one of another." It takes teamwork, all working together for the greater honor and glory of God. Heroic Acts of Charity for the poor souls is one way we can contribute. The rewards are everlasting!

A heartfelt thank you from Cyndi to "Cyndi's Angels"
  It has been a month and a half since Cyndi was rushed to the hospital. Surely, but slowly she is improving and would like to thank those whose prayers are the main reason she is on the road to recovery as she shares her own heartfelt words of gratitude and fills all in on her progress. Her family and doctors truly believe it is a miracle she is still alive. All the more reason to fight for helpless souls like the innocent unborn and the Terri Schiavo's of the world who have become political footballs rather than the precious treasures created by the Almighty. Cyndi is counting her blessings and wants to share her thoughts in Nothing more precious!

Father, forgive them...
With all the invectives being hurled at Mel, a very anti-Catholic movie has flown under the radar and Michael Matt sets the record straight in the October 31st issue of The Remnant as he exposes the underbelly of lies littering the movie "Luther". Though well done cinematically, the content is so erroneous that Catholics and Lutherans need to know the truth. Matt asks why haven't the producers of "Luther" been held to the same inquistion Gibson has been put through? After all, outside of Adolph Hitler there was no bigger anti-Semite than Martin Luther. Matt gets to the heart of the matter and expresses who and what the apostate heretic monk Martin Luther really was in his article Luther. New Film wages holy war on Extra Ecclesiam nulla salus


Catholic PewPOINT
Editor Michael Cain weighs in with the parallel of the recent devastating California wildfires with the bonfires of souls consumed since Vatican II and how few realize the eternal destruction of the millions and millions of souls because the post-conciliar Church has not safeguarded the Faith, not kept the extinguishers of apostasy and heresy at the ready, thus allowing the flames to sear higher for the 'smoke of satan' has grown into a raging inferno matched only by the unfathomable fires of hell as Cain emphasizes in Deliver us from the 'Devil Winds'!
Gabriel's Clarion
We are pleased to introduce another respected writer to The Daily Catholic cadre of Traditional writers with the addition of Gabriel Garnica, an educator and attorney. Heaven is once again under attack by those who would seek to ignore and overthrow God's majesty and authority. Gabriel's notes will be music to tradtional ears but unpleasant tones to those who have bought into the misguided notions so prevalent and spreading in today's Catholic world. In this issue he sounds the clarion in asking us to take up the whip and drive the modernists out of Holy Mother Church as he explains in his column Overturning the Moneychangers
Traditional Insights
Mario Derksen reflects on the devastation that has been visited upon the Church. Just as we are discovering more each day, 9-11 was not an isolated, spur of moment passionate terrorist act, so also it was no happenstance or inspiration from above that triggered the outbreak of Vatican II and a new religion. And since then the epidemic has spread from "Ground Zero," a virus affecting the soul that was engineered by the very "technicians" and "spiritual physicians" we should have been able to trust. Looking back over 40 years, we can clearly see the only antivirus to the venom of this new doctrine is to hold to the traditions handed down in doctrine and liturgy, and realize that Christ will triumph in the end just as His Mother's Immaculate Heart shall triumph and the Revolution defeated. Until then, realize that the revolutionists are in charge. Pray and resist as Mario explains in his column Ground Zero
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 three The Prophets Persist.
Pro Life Prescriptions
Dr. Frank Joseph's column this month addresses the terrible scandal that has flown beneath the radar of decency and common sense. While everyone castigates the politicians, they're not looking at who can really make a difference: The Catholic bishops. Because they've been weak-kneed spineless men in miters, millions and millions and millions of souls are being lost. The title of Dr. Frank's piece is from Apocalypse 3: 16 and it's necessary to say in these dire times of moral decay as he points out in his tell-it-like-it-is column "I will vomit thee out of My mouth"
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.
Doctors of the Church
The thirtieth Doctor in this chronological series on the Doctors of the Church became a Capuchin monk, devoting his life to preaching and helped raise an army in the Holy Roman Empire to combat the Turkish threat. He personally marched into battle with only one weapon - the Crucifix of Jesus Christ. He also set his sights on Austria and Bohemia to win back souls by establishing friaries there and passionately countered the venom Martin Luther had spread throughout Western Europe. He was a champion of the Faith in converting countless Jews to the True Faith. He was the relentless warrior for Christ Saint Lawrence of Brindisi.
Echoes of True Catholicism
Dr. Marian Horvat weighs in with some serious questions we must all ask in light of the "saint factory" where they are being churned out by John Paul II faster than stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and mean about the same thing - popularity. Mother Teresa was accepted by the world, was seen and shot by the paparazzi, schmoozed with the notorious and infamous. Now she's blessed because it gives credence to the revolution. While Marian's article might offend some who have bought into the idea that Mother Teresa could do no wrong, perhaps they should consider the facts presented as Marian asks: What about the Orthodoxy of Mother Teresa?
Catholicism 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 authoritatively 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
Traditio
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

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 Papal decrees 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


   We invite you to find out for yourself the truth as we present a compendium portal of documents on the Faith in all aspects, past, present and to come. We guarantee what you read is in full harmony with the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church, and we guarantee you that if you read it all with a discerning heart you will be able to decipher the wheat from the chaff. You will better understand what the absolutes of our Faith are and not be fooled by modernism and ambiguities, no matter how cleverly they are couched. Remember satan is the father of half-truths.
