    Videos on state of the Church Today
     Help us reach more souls


   As we complete this month of the Most Precious Blood, in asking God to sanctify, save, inebriate, wash and strengthen us in the Anima Christi and at every true Traditional Latin Mass when the priest, acting as alter Christus, consecrates the wine into the Blood of Christ after confecting the bread into the Body of Christ. We are also reminded in Sunday's Gospel of what many know in their hearts is right, but for some reason are afraid to admit. That is, since the death of His Holiness Pope Pius XII, the Catholic Church hasn't been the same. That's right, and Jesus tells us why. Because what poses as 'Catholic' today, governed by those usurping the authority in Rome and dioceses throughout the world, is a false church - a man-made religion that has eclipsed the true Church consigned in these times to the catacombs. Our Lord warns in St. Matthew 7: 15-20 to beware of the false prophets who may appear in clothing of sheep, but inwardly we must recognize them as ravening wolves or worse. If the faithful couldn't see the "abomination of desolation" (St. Matthew 24:15) and devious destruction of the true Faith during the regimes of the first five imposters since Pius' passing, they should surely see it now as Roman-born Argentine Jorge Bergoglio continues his agenda to wipe out any vestiges of Catholic truth that would be offensive to non-Catholics in his Marxist mindset to please man, not God through his humanist efforts to form a One World Religion. If one reads St. Paul's warning in 2 Thessalonians 2: 3-11 and what many would do in 2 Timothy 4: 3-4, we can more readily see what Our Lord meant in St. Luke 18:8 when He asked rhetorically if there would be any one of faith left when He returns.

    To see the path the current CONciLIAR church is on, all one needs to do is read chapters 17 and 18 of the Book of the Apocalypse. While Protestants point to those chapters - in what they call Revelation as being the Catholic Church - true Catholics realize it cannot possibly be because it is the Mystical Body of Christ as John Gregory verifies with Pope Pius XII's Encyclical Mystici Corporis Christi in part nine of his series on Monsignor Clifford Fenton's The Catholic Church and Salvation. True Catholics know that the false church of Vatican 2 is the harlot of Babylon described in the words written on the isle of Patmos by the holy evangelist. To understand this further, we refer you to Sunday's sermon by Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI "By their fruits you shall know them" and we remind you of all the proof located in the column to the right from true Popes, saints and documentation of all we say here. Don't take our word for it, see what the Church has decreed from the Apostles through Pius XII. If it was right and proper for salvation during that timespan, then it still is today and to hear or heed anything else is to ignore St. Paul's warning in Galatians 1: 8-10 to beware if even an angel were to tell you something else. What would they be? Anathema sit. Condemned.

        

    The saints celebrated this week recognized that and chose the narrow path to forge their salvation, from the many martyrs honored this week in commemorations - Sts. Pantaleon, Nazarius, Celsus, Popes Victor and Felix II, Simplicius, Faustinus, Beatrice, Abdon, Sennen, the Seven Holy Machabees, and Pope St. Stephen I., to three saints who did all they could for Jesus and His Church - St. Martha, St. Ignatius Loyola who, if he could, would come back with a vengeance for what the usurpers have done to the Company of Jesus, of which he was instrumental in founding as the Jesuits, and St. Alphonsus Liguouri, the holy Bishop and Doctor of the Church whose love for the Blessed Virgin Mary knew no bounds and he shares it with us in his devotion and writings he has passed down. Speaking of being passed down, August marks the 800th Anniversary of Our Lady bequeathing her holy Psalter - the holy Rosary - to St. Dominic in 1214 to fight heresies. To celebrate this occasion, we will bring you installments of St. Louis-Marie Grignon de Montfort's , magnificent, inspiring work The Secret of the Rosary. Now 800 years later, we have more heresy than ever before and yet so many regard the holy Rosary as mere superstition' or 'pelagian'. If you buy into the social engineering of Bergoglio and his ilk, you'll realize you are one of the deceived for the CONciLIAR church is composed of two type of people: the deceived and the deceivers. Do you really want to be either? Like St. Peter in chains, those who are shackled and still persist in their error of thinking the V2 church is Catholic most probably won't have an angel coming to free their soul from incarceration. To avoid being deceived, we bring you features to enhance the faith. One piece we bring back for the feast of St. Martha is the late Cyndi Cain's Lesson from her University of Virtue series asking if we're ready to roll up our sleeves and get to work on saving souls, beginning with our own. She did just that and now intercedes for all sincere souls to do the same.

   We have lost a traditional Catholic Bishop with the death of Bishop Oliver Oravec. He passed away on July 10 in his homeland of Slovakia. His Excellency had been consecrated by Bishop Robert McKenna, O.P.. We were notified via Fr. James Kovak who wrote, "I am asking for prayers and Masses to be offered to God for the repose of his soul. He took good care of his flock while he was here, we should do all that we can to take care of his spiritual needs now that he can no longer do that for himself. I trust that you will do so. May God reward you for your charity and generosity in this world and in the next." We encourage your prayers for his soul and include here the Sequence Dies Irae from a Requiem High Mass as a reminder to all to keep before you at all times the Four Final Things - Death, Judgment, Heaven and Hell and, like Bishop Oravec, have your lamps lit and be ready for we know not the day nor the hour. Réquiem ætérnam dona eí, Dómine. Et lux perpétua lúceat ei. Requiéscat in pace. Anima ejus, et animæ ómnium fidélium defunctórum, per misericórdiam Dei requiéscant in pace. Amen.

    We know it's summer and we know in the west there is a severe drought. That is only too evident in the fact donations have almost dried up except for the same few faithful benefactors who give while so many others think we're made of money and don't need a cent. Oh, if only that were true. Thus, I must ask your indulgence in my continuing plea for your charity. As I indicated in the past editions, I ask your prayers and support since we are definitely in the red in endeavoring to somehow pay our just debts on past medical expenses, not to mention my bride Cyndi's funeral costs, where the aggregate has been pared from $7,000. down to $5,000. but late charges necessitate that they're paid in time. There are several out there who could write one or two checks to cover the entire amount and put us in the black, assuring we continue to publish. I ask those who have not donated before, but benefited from what they have read on the DailyCatholic, to help in remembering Cyndi by donating whatever they can afford to help alleviate the debts she accrued through no fault of her own. I humbly ask you to open your heart to Cyndi's Angels.

    Also keep in mind I'm trying to cover all bases while surviving without Cyndi's Social Security check of $515.00 each month that had helped cover the mortgage, escalating lot rent, and car, in addition to other necessary expenses. Did I mention that I take not one cent of salary, nor have I over the past twenty years? Publishing the DailyCatholic has always been a labor of love for the love of Jesus, His Most Immaculate Mother Mary, and for perpetuating the Truths and Traditions of holy Mother Church from Peter through Pope Pius XII before the Great Apostasy eclipsed the True Church. I pledge to fight on in the trenches, minus a part of me - my soulmate - for I am confident God always has this traditional apostolate's back and I hope and pray you will, too. God bless and keep.

In commenting on today's Introit, St. Augustine remarks: "Hand and tongue must agree together; let the one glorify God and the other act accordingly." True wisdom does not consist only in hearing God's words but in fulfilling them; not only in praying to Him, but in showing Him by our actions that we love Him. "The Gospel," says St. Hilary, "warns us, that pleasing words and kindly airs are to be appraised according to the fruit of a man's works, and ...More

Today is also the feast of the holy martyr St. Pantaleon with a commemoration during Low Masses. He was a physician of Nicomedia. His name signifies in the Greek "many shall obtain mercy" or "all-compassionate" (Panteleemon). According to legend he was he son of a rich pagan ...More

To enhance each Sunday's Epistle and Gospel we present this special feature provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. For the Seventh Sunday after Pentecost, quite possibly the most powerful of affirmations is given by our Lord and Savior that it isn't that difficult to tell who are the false prophets and heretics for by their fruits we shall know them. There is nothing ambiguous about Christ's words that a bad tree will be chopped down and rooted out, then cast into the fire. What other kind of fire would the Son of Man be talking about in His parable but eternal hellfire? It dovetails with St. Paul's words in the epistle that the wages of sin is death, as in mortal sin equals death to eternal life; and that eternal life is available only through the grace of God, our salvation merited by Christ's offering Himself on the Cross, shedding every last drop of His Most Precious Blood for us. A most fitting commentary to the Epistle and Gospel for the Seventh Sunday after Pentecost in these tumultuous times when all that is Catholic is mocked in Rome and throughout the world. They forget that Those who do not yield good fruit and remain unrepentant will be cast into the eternal fire


Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a twelve-minute sermon given last year by Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI, Rector of St. Joseph Seminary at the City of Mary in Rathdrum, Idaho. Father asks, in speaking of today's gospel, how do we judge who is a false teacher? He shows that we have to judge by one's words and actions. Are they in sync with all the teachings of holy Mother Church. Father relates today's situation to the Old Testament and the traitor Absolam who wreaked so much havoc because of his own ambitions. Father asks us to test the spirits, know the true Faith so you will not be led astray. He refers to those in the CONciLIAR church who don't want to try to know the truth, using the excuse that they are not theologians, but Father points out we don't need to be to know the false church of Vatican 2 is a bad tree that is destined for the fire for there are no good fruits. Is it a good tree or a bad tree? As Father notes, the answer is obvious for By Their Fruits You Shall Know Them

St. Nazarius was baptized by Pope Linus at Rome; in his turn he baptized the youthful St. Celsus. They were both beheaded at Milan about the year 368. Their bodies, buried in a garden outside the city, were found by St. Ambrose in 395. The body of St. Nazarius appeared as if it had just been beheaded. It was placed by St. Ambrose in the Basilica Romana. The body of the boy St. Celsus was found in another part of the garden, but was not removed. However, a basilica was later built in his honor. Pope St. Victor, the thirteenth in order from St. Peter, is famous in the history of the Church of the first three centuries for his encyclicals addressed to all the churches, in which he appointed synods with a view to coming to an agreement concerning the date of the ...More

No, the above headline has nothing to do with the song of the 50's but rather a song for the ages in carrying out the two greatest Commandments. It is a reminder of how much God loves us that the Father sent His only-begotten Son that we might have life everlasting and have it abundantly as Christ affirmed in St. John 10: 10. It has often been said that love begins in the heart, and it does but in a way few are willing to recognize for that heart, which miraculously is the core of life fashioned by God to pump blood to our mortal bodies will cease once the blood stops flowing and the flesh withers and dies. But how we lived while that heart was working is the key to whether the real core of our lives - the soul - lives on in eternal bliss or is relegated to the abyss of hell to forever suffer. Therefore, the Infinite established two great commandments for finite man to follow, to love God first and foremost, and then to love ourselves and our fellow man because of our love for Him. Jesus said it so clearly that one cannot love Him if one does not keep His Commandments. Yet so few realize this fact and therein lies the biggest obstacle to true love which is so simply laid out in step twenty-seven That Virtue Called Love


With so many new readers, we've decided to go retro with the revelations to St. Bridget of Sweden, here so beautifully depicted in the painting by Michelle R. Maher. To see a larger copyrighted image click on the painting here. We continue with Book One where Jesus continues His soliloquy to His Bride Bridget as He praises her mentor, a holy Swedish theologian named Master Mathias who, though he was tempted many times, overcame all. Jesus assures her that she also can and to lean on what she was taught. He provides her with assurances that Mathias was victorious and now is reaping those rewards of perseverance and fidelity. Christ's words are as pertinent today as they were for St. Bridget in her time. We can learn from this for we are all sinners who are tempted, but it is in striving for holiness that we can eventually become saints. Our Lord inspires us in Chapter Three, Magnificent Magnet of the Divine

Saint Martha , whose feast we celebrate today, is mentioned by name only in Luke 10:38-42; and John 11, 12, sqq. The Aramaic form occurs in a Nabat├Žan inscription found at Puteoli, and now in the Naples Museum; it is dated A.D. 5 (Corpus Inscr. Semit., 158); also in a Palmyrene inscription, where the Greek translation has the form Marthein, A.D. 179. The likeness between the pictures of Martha presented by St. Luke and St. John is very remarkable. The familiar intercourse between our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the humble family which St. Luke depicts is dwelt on by St. John when he tells us that "Jesus loved Martha, and her sister Mary, and Lazarus" (11:5). Again the picture of Martha's anxiety (John 11:20-21, 39) accords with the picture of her who was "busy about much serving" (Luke 10:40); so also in John 12:2: "They made Him a ...More

Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you an eight-minute sermon given five years ago on this feast by Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great in Cincinatti, Ohio. His Excellency tells about St. Anthony of Padua's great devotion to St. Martha and that man cannot live without bread and she is the essense of the active vs. the contemplative of her sister St. Mary. She is depicted in art as holding the asperges in sprinkling holy water as a sacramental driving out the dragon which represents the devil as she clings to the Word of God of which she heard our Lord speak so often during his visits to their home. She comes to us at each funeral as a reminder of Christ's question to her if she believes in eternal life and her testimony to Him. The Bishop then gives a special blessing for this feast in concluding his sermon on Saint Martha


On this feast of St. Martha, we bring you a lesson penned by Cyndi Cain, the dearly departed bride of the editor, that was written four years ago. She imparted some poignant thoughts. Lost today is the honest work ethic that enabled the apostles and succeeding missionaries to persevere in saving souls. No longer is hard work the desired goal; no longer are the rewards of sweat and tears on our hands and knees paying off because the payoff today is to make things as easy as possible. Lazy is the word and laziness breeds apathy and apathy breeds lukewarmness, and lukewarmness prompts the Lord to regurgitate those who embrace such out of His mouth. Cyndi wanted all to take a cue from the trendsetter for hardwork in our Lord's time - St. Martha - and learn from her example in serving others while at the same time realizing those others must return the favors by participating in God's plans and mission to save souls. They can do so by contributing either their time, talents or treasures. To skimp on these will not bode well when God tabulates the final tallies. We have the Holy Ghost to guide us. Why aren't we tuning in to the greatest technology available: listening and speaking to God!?! Cyndi, whose mission on earth is completed, reminded us that for rest of us There is Work to be Done

Sts. Abdon and Sennen were Persians who, coming to Rome in the Third Century, courageously confessed the faith of Christ and were put to death in the persecution of Decius in 250. The emperor Decius, enemy of Christians, had defeated the king of Persia and become master of several countries over which he reigned. He had already condemned to torture and death Saint Polychrome, with five members of his clergy. Saint Abdon and Saint Sennen, illustrious Persian dignitaries of the third century whom the king of Persia had highly honored, were secretly Christian; it was they who had taken up the body of ...More
In light of the terror in the world today, God's command to love our neighbor - love our enemy - can be a hard pill to swallow it. But digest it we must for this is the second part of the Great Commandment to love one another as God has loved us. This entails loving our neighbor which does not mean only the one next door or across the street, but in the sense of all who we come in contact with, treating them always with the love of God; yes, even our enemies. Here comes into play one of the biggest bugaboos that often are used against those striving to do God's holy Will. Enemies of Christ will accuse Christians of being intolerant if they do as St. Paul entreats us to do in 2 Timothy 4: 2 to "Preach the word, be instant in season, out of season, reprove, entreat, rebuke with all patience and doctrine." If we do that we will always express love for our neighbor as well as our enemies, turning their attacks into honey to salve our own hearts and soften theirs. The greatest result is that it will please the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts and that is what is most important in the overall scope of things as we can see in step twenty-eight Loving Friend and Foe


Through these revelations to St. Bridget we see clearer than ever the mind of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Here, for the first time, St. Bridget speaks and admits she was mistaken. Christ reveals three things to recognize the good spirit and likewise three keys to identify the evil spirit that comes from God's adversary the devil. Jesus assures her that no one who devoutly serves Him will be handed over to satan or allow the demon to win. He points out that He allows temptations and man's weakness to strengthen us and test our fidelity as well as humbling us so that we will depend solely on Him as illustrated in Chapter Four of Book One Be not deceived

Saint Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus, was born at Loyola in Spain, in the year 1491. He served his king as a soldier till his thirtieth year. Convalescing from a severe wound received at the siege of Pampeluna, he was given, in the absence of other books, the Lives of Jesus Christ and of the Saints. It dawned on his chivalric nature that the Church has need of her army to defend under the sovereign Pontiff the interest of God against heresy and all evil. On his ...More

Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons we are able to bring you a ten-minute sermon given four years ago on this feast by Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great in Cincinatti, Ohio. His Excellency reminds us that St. Ignatius of Loyola was a former soldier, a Conquistador and he had seen bloodshed but wanted to save souls and to do so they needed to be educated, both the priests and the penitents. Thus gathering some priests together he spearheaded the founding of the Society of Jesus that has fallen on very hard times for there are hardly any true Jesuits left today for "the worse thing is the corruption of those who are the best" and before Vatican 2 the Jesuits were considered the best. Not today for they have sold out to the Modernists and embraced the Apostasy, being some of the most liberal going and who began liberation theology in the 20th Century with many leading Jesuits responsible for laying the foundatin for the Great Apostasy. His Excellency prays that we will have the fire of God's love that consumed Saint Ignatius of Loyola

Today is the Feast of Saint Peter's Chains. The chains with which Peter the Apostle was fettered from time to time have always been the object of veneration among the faithful. They are preserved in a basilica in Rome, which is called Saint Peter ad Vincula (in chains). The anniversary of the dedication of this church falls on August 1st. The chains of the Apostle Paul are preserved in the Basilica of St. Paul. The reverence shown to the chains of the two apostles must have been very widely spread in olden times from the moment when Justinian I asked the Pope for "a portion of the chains of the holy apostles, if it were possible" and Pope St. Gregory the Great relates that in his day the faithful were eagerly desirous of the favor of possessing at least a small quantity of the filings of St. Paul's chains. The chains of St. Peter are in two portions, one having eleven links, shaped so as to hold the hands, and the other twenty-three links, at the end of which are two half circles to hold the neck. Only four links are preserved of the chains which bound St. Paul. Today is also the feast of the Holy Machabees, Martyrs The Seven ...More

John Gregory returns with his series on Monsignor Joseph Clifford Fenton's work. In Msgr. Fenton's list of eight documents on salvation, in his work "The Catholic Church and Salvation" he applies Pope Pius XII's Encyclical Mystici Corporis Christi in which the last true Pope clearly delineates who is a member of the true Church and who is not. As determined by the holy Cardinal and Doctor of the Church and leading theologian of the Counter-Revolution of Trent, the term agreed upon is "membrum ecclesiae" - members of the Church. The orthodox Fr. Fenton then delineates who are members and who are not and this clearly shows that the true Church founded by Christ does not merely "subsists in" subsistet as the Hegelian Fr. Joseph Ratzinger so deviously inserted into Lumen Gentium while a planted peritus at Vatican 2, but rather IS the Church, the ONLY Church and, without a committed desire to belong, puts one outside the Church with chances of salvation nigh unto nil. No wonder being in the state of sanctifying grace and heeding all the Church has always taught is paramount to reaching eternal salvation. The Encyclical Mystici Corporis Christi

Besides the above prayer from St. Louis-Marie Grignon de Montfort, we have the magnificent inspiration he gave us of The Secret of the Rosary. Since the month of August this year is the 800th Anniversary of the holy Rosary, we want to bring you installments to enhance your devotion in praying the Rosary for those blessed beads are indeed, the most powerful weapons we have available 24-7. You want to change hearts? You want to convert souls? You want to change the world for good? Pray Mary's holy Psalter. Each Ave, as the banner above, a spiritual rose that gathered together in the bouquet of the Mysteries of the Rosary become countless Spiritual Roses offered to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, especially during her month dedicated to same. We know God cannot say no to His Blessed Mother and she won't say no to you if you take up the Rosary and pray it as often as you can depending on your state in life. We begin with the Preface to St. Louis' work, written over two and a half centuries ago. And now, Preface to The Secret of the Rosary

St. Alphonsus was born of noble parents near Naples, Italy, in 1696, and died in 1787. In the midst of many evils he appeared with a three-fold mission as Doctor, Bishop, and founder of a new religious Order. As Doctor he became the great teacher of Moral Theology; he found the middle way between the two extremes of the lax and the over rigorous, and by his ascetic writings he spread amongst the people Catholic piety, devotion to Our Lady, to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, to the Passion, and defended the supreme rights of the Church and of the Pope. As apostle and bishop St. Alphonsus sought to imitate Our Divine Redeemer in His evangelizing journeys through the villages of Galilee and Judea. Hence he founded his own society of missionaries whom he destined to labor among the poor peasants and mountaineers rather than the inhabitants of the towns. As founder of a new Order, the saint has the merit of having adapted the scope of his work to the needs of the time, and of having brought it to completion in spite of innumerable difficulties. Although approved by the Pope, the King of Naples refused to permit the new Order to establish itself. St. Alphonsus himself was excluded from the houses of his own Order in the Kingdom of Naples. This schism existed until his death. After his death the whole scene changes; the rejected founder is raised to the altars, and his Congregation extends its boundaries beyond the confines of Italy and of Europe. While the story of the holy Doctor of the Church St. Alphonsus Liquori is to the left, there is also commemoration of Pope Saint Stephen I, Martyr who by birth was a Roman. He was made Pope on May 3, 253, and governed the Church for three years. He decided the question of the validity of Baptism when administered by heretics, ordering that the tradition should be preserved according to which it was sufficient that they receive confirmation. He was murdered by the Emperor's soldiers while ...More

The holy Doctor of the Church Saint Alphonsus Liguori founded an order dedicated to redeeming souls and he wrote volumes during a time when the enlightenment was already threatening the foundations of the Church. He vowed never to waste a moment and never did. He was the outstanding moral theologian who held the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as the greatest gift any Catholic could partake in. He foretold the very crisis the Church is suffering today when he prophesied, "The devil has always attempted, by means of the heretics, to deprive the world of the Mass, making them precursors of the antichrist, who, before anything else, will try to abolish and will actually abolish the Holy Sacrament of the altar, as a punishment for the sins of men, according to the prediction of Daniel 'And strength was given him against the continual sacrificer'." Alphonsus, through a thorough knowledge of the Faith, the cavalier attitude already permeating the Church and through messages he himself received from Heaven, knew that day would come when, just as Our Lord foretold in Matthew 24: 15, the "abomination of desolation" would occur. He was truly the Keeper of the Moral Compass

Besides the above prayer from St. Louis-Marie Grignon de Montfort, we have the magnificent inspiration he gave us of The Secret of the Rosary. Since the month of August this year is the 800th Anniversary of the holy Rosary, we want to bring you installments to enhance your devotion in praying the Rosary for those blessed beads are indeed, the most powerful weapons we have available 24-7. How appropriate we bring you this on the feast of one of the holiest priests in the Church Triumphant, St. Alphonsus Liguouri, who like St. Louis de Montfort, was totally dedicated to the Blessed Mother in every way. This holy Doctor's writings and sermons are legendary and it was from St. Alphonsus that St. Louis de Montfort gained encouragement and edification in following his example. We present today in de Montfort's Dedication, first and foremost for Christ's consecrated alter Christi, A White Rose for Priests


John Gregory presents a meditation on the Sorrowful Mysteries with the first for it is at the Mount of Olivet where we begin, with our Lord, the grueling trek to Calvary. There in the Garden He was alone for even His Apostles could not watch one hour with Him. How lonely it must have been, how harrowing the agony to see our sins and transgressions. How can we ease His suffering? By resolving not to place ourselves in the occasions of sin; by being part of the hope and light that sustained Him and encouraged Him to continue His course for He was a man, like us in every way, save for sin. Why, oh, why do we persist in offending the Son of God? And yet, while we still expect God to do so much for us, are we willing to spend even an hour a day with Him and for Him? The First Sorrowful Mystery: The Agony in the Garden

We urge you to click the Rosary banner above for the Fifth Saturday in the Fifteen Saturdays Rosary Crusade organized by Bishop Robert McKenna, O.P. to do our part for the salvation of souls by bringing souls to the true Catholic Faith and Sacraments, for the welfare of our country, and for our own special intentions as we all strive for holiness in our role as members of the Church Militant. On this sixth Saturday of the Fifteen we now arrive at the Sorrowful stage of Christ's life with the Agony in the Garden where He wept in realizing how soon we would abandon Him for the world, the flesh and the devil. If only we realized He must be our only world and we all need to have contrition for our sins as is the intention for the Sixth Saturday

Keep up to date by following us on twitter or just read our twitter feed below for the latest buzz daily from a truly Catholic viewpoint as all have come to expect from the DailyCatholic.

To fortify why the CONciLIAR church is the false church, see key Papal Decrees that preceded it in pre-Vatican Two times by true Popes who solidly condemned the V2 false 'popes' who have spit in Heaven's Face. God will not be mocked. See for yourself what the infallible, perennial Magisterium of the Church has decreed:

  • Papal Coronation Oath Pope Agatho
  • Unam Sanctam Pope Boniface VIII
  • Cum Ex Apostolatus Officio Pope Paul IV
  • Quo Primum Pope St. Pius V
  • De Defectibus Pope St. Pius V
  • Satis Cognitum Pope Leo XIII
  • Apostolicae Curae Pope Leo XIII
  • Lamentabili Sane Pope St. Pius X
  • Pascendi Dominici Gregis Pope St. Pius X
  • Oath Against Modernism Pope St. Pius X
  • Mortalium Animos Pope Pius XI
  • Humani Generis Pope Pius XII
  • Sacramentum Ordinis Pope Pius XII

    If the above Papal Decrees have not convinced you, then for more evidence that the Chair is VACANT and that Vatican Two and all that has followed is Anathema sit as St. Paul asserts in Galatians 1: 8-9, see these on-line books and sources:

    The links above and below provide almost daily updates. The two above can be trusted totally, while we urge a mild caution on the two below because of their refusal to admit Francis is a false pope.

    For other sites that provide the tenets of the Faith but are not daily, we refer you to

      We encourage you to learn more about the Traditional Latin Mass - the true Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in these videos at this link because each time you worthily assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in person, you gain graces that are placed in a "golden chalice", so to speak, and is offered to God to be weighed in substance when you stand before Him at your Particular Judgment. The more you have filled this chalice, the better will it go for your spiritual welfare in eternity, enhanced by your cooperation with grace. Know the Mass

    To assist all in striving toward holiness, click on the Confessional to your right to review your transgressions through a thorough Examination of Conscience

    When One Cannot physically assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass we provide additional prayers that can be supplemented with the ORDINARY OF THE HOLY MASS and the PROPER OF THE DAY to enable you to better prepare yourself at home. Of course, this never replaces actually being there, but it is much better than attending the Novus Ordo services. Therefore we have gleaned from The Key of Heaven prayers to say at home. It is very comforting to know that the Holy Mass is offered for us even when we are not actually present. But to enjoy the benefits which it procures, we must by a SPIRITUAL COMMUNION become partakers of the altar from which we are temporarily banished. Here we provide prayers in preparation for fulfilling assistance in absentia in addition to the ORDINARY OF THE HOLY MASS and PROPER OF THE DAY. PRAYERS IN ABSENTIA

    The Fatima Prayers

    My God, I believe, I adore, I trust and I love Thee; and I beg pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not trust, and do not love Thee.
    (repeat the above 3 times then bow your head in reciting the following:)

        O Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in tabernacles throughout the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in unison with the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners.

        O Most Holy Trinity, I adore Thee! My God, my God, I love Thee in the Most Blessed Sacrament!

        O my Jesus, it is for love of Thee, in reparation for the offenses committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary and for the conversion of poor sinners.
