    In the face of the latest aberration, namely the January intention that all religions are good, or the obsessive daily heresy spewed officially or off-the-cuff by Mr. Jorge Bergoglio, we begin on Monday the Chair of Church Unity Octave Week. It is eight consecutive days from the Feast of the Chair of Peter through next Monday's Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul in which we pray each day that all may be one, but not in the ecumaniacal way of Vatican II and unFrancis and his CONciLIAR predecessors who try to foist on the faithful that the True Church of Christ merely "subsists in" the Church with other churches on a live and let live level, but rather in praying and wanting all to realize the errors of their way and convert to the True Faith practiced from Peter through Pius XII. Pray for the collapse of the CONciLIAR church and the restoration of the true Roman Catholic Church. What Jorge urges is the antithesis of Our Lord's ultimatum in Mark 16: 15-16.

    "Go ye into the whole world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized, shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be condemned.

   Jesus also reminds us in St. Luke 18: 8:

    But yet the Son of man, when He cometh, shall He find, think you, faith on earth?

    It's not likely He will if the CONciLIAR church of Vatican 2 continues its course of deceiving and consigning souls to hell. Oh, satan is having a field day thanks to the greatest proof that the Chair is vacant: 'Pope' Francis. Remember Our Lady's words at Fatima, "In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph." I guarantee you it will not be through the current occupants of Rome, but through her divine Son's remnant Church now relegated to the catacombs all in God's time through divine intervention. While we need to wait that time out, we can't just go into a cocoon. No, we need to preach the true Faith to every creature we can, the man calling himself 'pope' be damned, we must shout the good news from the rooftops while reminding souls of the Last Four Things: Death, Judgment, Heaven or Hell. Below is the daily prayer during this week for true unity.

PRAYER  FOR   THE   CHURCH   UNITY   OCTAVE
(Official Octave Prayer)

ANTIPHON (from St. John 17: 21)
    "That they all may be one, as Thou, Father, in Me and I in Thee; that they also may be one in Us; that the world may believe that Thou has sent Me."

      V. I say unto thee that thou art Peter
      R. And upon this Rock I will build My Church.

    Let us pray. O Lord Jesus Christ, Who saidst unto Thine Apostles: Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you; regard not our sins, but the faith of Thy Church, and vouchsafe to grant unto Her that peace and unity which are agreeable to Thy Will. Who livest and reignest God forever and ever. Amen.

      An indulgence of 300 days during the octave of prayers for the unity of the Church, from the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter in Rome to the feast of the Conversion of St. Paul. A Plenary Indulgence on the usual conditions at the end of the devout exercise.

    As the Church breaks out the green for the Second Sunday after Epiphany, this week is bookended by the feast of two holy confessors, St. Anthony the Abbot on Sunday and St. Raymond of Penafort on Saturday. After the Feast of the Chair of Peter we have four straight days of commemorating holy martyrs. This, in a sense, is the last week of Christmastide for we begin the Time of Septuagesima next Sunday on the feast of another holy martyr St. Timothy before concluding Church Unity Octave Week.

    This week when we commisserate the 43rd anniversary of the abominable Roe vs. Wade decision that has claimed over 60 million souls, it time to reinvigorate and reinforce what we must do: Speak out for the truth no matter the consequences because abortion is one of the four sins that cry to Heaven for vengeance. The hell with being politically correct, we need to be CC, Christ-correct. That means standing up for the sanctity of life and doing all we can physically and spiritually do to overturn Roe vs. Wade. Not everyone can take the time nor are they near an area where many will march for the Sanctity of Life, either in Washington D.C. or in a city near you. If it is not possible to attend, or to pray the Rosary outside an abortuary, pray your Rosaries at home and trend on twitter with the hashtag #PrayToEndAbortion. Trend this on Friday from 1 p.m. EST, noon in the Central Time Zone, 11 a.m. MST, and 10 in the morning for the Pacific Standard Time. What will it prove or result in? Who knows, but God will and that's all that counts.

    We know from Sacred Scripture, the writings of the Fathers, Doctors, Saints, and Popes of what God says, but when we hear His voice again through the words of the Church-approved Revelations and Prophesies of St. Bridget of Sweden, we get a better perspective of why lukewarmness or just getting by won't help us at Judgement time. It's a reminder that we all had better toe the line and realize how Americanism and Modernism permeate our every waking hour and how much God despises these heresies. He tells the bride just how much, and reveals to her what He expects. Are we living up to His expectations? We better be. That's why we've resumed providing the chapters below from Book Three. They may be short, but they pack a powerful punch. So do the sermons we provide for each day, courtesy of Gerry Keveaney of Traditional Catholic Sermons.

   For those who are unaware of the passing of His Excellency Bishop Robert Fidelis McKenna, O.P. in mid December, we have all lost a true pioneer of the traditional movement. He was the last true Dominican bishop. That is the saddest commentary on the tragic effects of Vatican 2 which he fought with all his might and refused to compromise one iota. Margaret Omlor was able to curry enough donations to cover the Thirty Day Gregorian Masses for the repose of his soul and to rush him into everlasting bliss before the Beatific Vision. For more on this giant in seeking to save souls from the heresies of the CONciLIAR church, see our tribute when he was enshrined in the Tower of Trent Hall of Honor for Bishop McKenna, O.P. Like his founder St. Dominic, the good bishop took up the charge to fight heresy wherever he saw it while ordaining priests and consecrating bishops to provide the true Sacraments to willing souls who realized that Modernist Rome is not Catholic.

    The two videos below illustrate the best arguments for sedevacantism in proving the Chair of Peter remains vacant. This may, of course, contradict what you've heard from those who trip over themselves to Recognize and Resist the current occupant in Rome - the very one who relishes his reputation as the "humble one". Don't believe it. The devil deceives and he's done a good job of getting a vast majority to "believe lying" (cf. 2 Thessalonians 2:10). To better understand why the Chair of Peter has been vacant since the death of Pope Pius XII of happy memory, we again provide these two videos below, one from Fr. Anthony Cekada titled "Why Do Traditionalists Fear Sedevacantism?" and the other from NovusOrdoWatch.org with "True or False Popes" Have the Gates of Hell Prevailed? that will hopefully remove the veil of doubt and help those who fear such a situation to connect the dots and realize the only reconciliation to the Great Apostasy today is that the gates of hell have prevailed against the CONciLIAR church but can never prevail against the true Church instituted by Jesus Christ upon the Rock of Peter. (cf. St. Matthew 16: 18)

    Finally, we continue to tread water by barely making payments for the DailyCatholic, especially this time of the year when many annual contracts come due. If grace has touched you in realizing where the true Church truly is today, we ask you to help us reach others through your donations. Anything you can contribute will be greatly appreciated. May God bless you during this very short Time after Epiphany as we prepare next week for the Time of Septuagesima.

In the Gospel for the Second Sunday After Epiphany it gives us a figure of the transubstantiation, which St. Thomas calls the greatest of all miracles, and by reason of which the Eucharistic wine becomes the blood of the testament. And as it is the Eucharist which enables Jesus to consummate, as Bossuet has it, His mystical marriage with our souls, the Fathers have seen in the wedding feast of Cana a symbol of the union of the Word with the Church. Blessed Mary, full of the charity of which the Epistle speaks, asks of Jesus His first miracle on ...More

There is a commemoration today of St. Antony the Abbot. After St. Paul the Hermit, father of the Anchorites or hermits, the Christmas Cycle honors Saint Antony, father of the Cenobites, who live in common. When he was 18, he retired into the Egyptian desert and led the life of a hermit. ...More

Each Sunday and Holy Day of Obligation we feature the Haydock Commentary provided by John Gregory as compiled by Father George Leo Haydock and found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. With the type so small in most bibles, we publish it here in larger type in conjunction with the Epistle and Gospel for the Sunday Mass. For the Second Sunday after Epiphany, the topic is love and miracles with the Wedding Feast of Cana in which Christ performed His first public miracle and the Haydock Commentary treats the whys and wherefores of the loving relationship between Mother and Son and His willingness to honor her by changing water into wine, a precursor to the transubstantiation of the wine into the Blood of Christ at the Consecration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the most loving gift He could bestow to His children whom St. Paul entreats in his epistle to love one another as our Lord loves us. The First Miracle


Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI, Rector of St. Joseph's Minor Seminary in Rathdrum, Idaho at the City of Mary presents his 20 minute sermon from the Second Sunday after Epiphany given three years ago in which he shares why Catholics should develop a devotion to Mary for it through her that Jesus can say no to whatever we ask if it is pleasing to God. Father also points out that the first miracle was tied in to the holy Sacrament of Marriage for that is the keystone of God's plan for salvation in perpetuating the Faith and populating Heaven. When marriage breaks down, so also does society as we can see today where divorce and same-sex unions destroy the very fabric of all God intended. Father explains in his sermon Our Lady's Intercession and Marriage


On this feast of a holy Cardinal of the Church we present Chapter Twenty-One of Book Three from the Revelation and Prophesies of St. Bridget of Sweden regarding another great saint of the Church and founder of the first monastic order. The Blessed Mother speaks to her daughter in completing her divine Son's praise of the greatness and perfection of the life of St. Benedict. Then Mary reveals to St. Bridget what has become of those who once were true to the founder of the Benedictines by illustrating how the soul that bears worldly fruit is represented as a fruitless tree. She provides the metaphor of how the pride of mind is flint, and the cold soul as crystal. Finally Our Lady illustrates three noteworthy sparks arising from the tree, the crystal and the flint to bring consolation on how a soul can be redeemed and regain a life of grace in escaping from The Fruitless Tree.

Eleven years after the Ascension of our Blessed Lord, Saint Peter who had been appointed the head of the Church on earth by Christ Himself, transferred the seat of the Papacy from Antioch to Rome, where he preached the Faith and established his episcopal chair, and there the Bishops of Rome have ...More

On this first day of the Church Unity Octave, we bring you the wisdom of the venerable renowned Abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger. We are in that season of the ecclesiastical year which is devoted to honoring the Incarnation and Birth of the Son of God, and the Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary: it behooves us to remember, especially on this present Feast, that it is to the See of St. Peter that we owe the preservation of these dogmas, which are the very basis of our holy religion. Our Holy Mother Church, centered in Rome, not only taught them to us when She sent us the saintly missionaries who evangelized our countries; but, moreover, when heresy attempted to throw its mists and clouds over these high Mysteries, it was Rome that secured the triumph for truth by Her sovereign decisions. At Ephesus, when Nestorius was condemned, and the dogma which he assailed was solemnly proclaimed, that is, that the Divine Nature and the Human Nature which are in Christ make but one Person, and that Mary is consequently the true Mother of God, the Fathers of that General Council thus spoke: Church Unity Octave


Every year, from the feast of St Peter's Chair at Rome on January 18 to the feast of the Conversion of St. Paul on January 25, we observe a special week of prayer for the conversion of non-Catholics to the Faith. As we pray in the Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus: "Many indeed have never known Thee; many too, despising Thy precepts, have rejected Thee. Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus, and draw them to Thy Sacred Heart." Thus we pray for the conversion of pagans and infidels and see how far the CONciLIAR hierarchy has fallen. Compare two Germans: Consider what St. Bonfiface did in convincing pagans they were barking up the wrong tree, while 12 centuries later abdicator Fr. Josef Ratzinger and the man he enabled Mr. Bergoglio the unFrancis apostate have no problem allowing pagans to anoint them! Puhlease. Pray for these reprobates and the rest of the CONciLIAR apostates that they will be converted and realize there is only one true Faith with the fruits and what only Christ can offer through the only true Church He established on earth. Pray for the collapse of the counterfeit church of conciliarism and the scandalous acts committed over the past 55 years such as Wojtyla's celebrating snake worshippers or topless women and the many aberrations of past antipopes since the death of Pope Pius XII. See Day One of Church Unity Octave


The Blessed Mother follows up the revelation of the fate of the bishops covered in previous chapters with the fate of an abbot as she explains to her daughter St. Bridget about a monk with a harlot's heart in his breast, and how he apostatized from God through his own will and greed and his desertion of the angelic life. It very much parallels what Vatican II did to souls and is therefore most pertinent for all to realize the fate of those who apostasize from the truths and traditions of the Faith and the fate that awaits those who truly know what they are doing as Mary explains in chapter twenty-two in Book Three of the Prophesies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden with Missing in Action.

St. Marius and his wife St. Martha were Persian nobles, who with their two sons, Audifax and Abachum who came to Rome to worship God in the reign of Claudius II. There they visited Christians cast into prison for their faith: "You had compassion on prisoners," says the Epistle. They devoted themselves in many ways to the service of religion: but soon they had themselves to suffer for the faith: for "they were tortured and put to death" (Gospel). "Without fearing the persecutors" (Communion), they underwent all these torments with prayers of thanksgiving on their lips, for in them they saw like "the sparrow liberated from the bird catcher's net and who escapes towards heaven" (Offertory) the means of going to enjoy God for evermore (Introit). They were martyred in 270. ...More

As we pray in the Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus: "Turn Thine eyes of mercy toward the children of that race, once Thy chosen people: of old they called down upon themselves the Blood of the Savior; may it now descend upon them a laver of redemption and of life." Also, each Good Friday we pray in the Solemn Prayers as we "pray for the perfidious Jews, that our Lord and God may take away the veil from their hearts, so that they, too, may acknowledge Jesus Christ our Lord. Almighty, eternal God." Unfortunately, what Christ and His Church passed down through divine Revelation has been altered and Fr. Josef Ratzinger was one of the first to recognize that the Jews' wait for the Messias is not in vain, which, of course, would mean Christ was a liar and the Church is false. We know that is sheer anathema and pure insanity, but those who subscribe to the aberration of abominable Vatican II document Nostra Aetate have made themselves apostates in every way and made themselves puppets of the Zionists. Pray for them and the conversion of the Jews to recognize Christ is their King because He is the Son of God and their only means of salvation. See Day Two of Church Unity Octave


In Chapter Twenty-Three of Book Three from the Revelation and Prophesies of St. Bridget of Sweden the virgin bride hears from the heavenly Father when she implores the Lord for mercy on sinners and God the Father answers with a surefire three-fold formula that is the answer to the bride's prayers for sinners. The Father's response is the same as St. John the Beloved Disciple in his first Epistle, Chapter Five verses seven and eight on how three witnesses on earth, the Spirit, the Blood and the Water and Three in Heaven, the Father, the Word and the Holy Ghost bear witness to the bride for They are one. The heavenly Father makes known how St. Bridget is His bride through faith, like all those who follow the orthodox faith of the holy Catholic Church. The Triune Answer.

The two great Roman martyrs, Fabian and Sebastian, made manifest the first in 250 in the persecution of Decius, the second in 284 in that of Diocletian, the divine power of Christ "who operated wonders in them (Gradual). The ancient martyrologies unite their names. The appearance of the Holy Ghost, in the form of a dove, had attested the divinity of Jesus on the day of His Baptism. It was also a dove hovering above Fabian that pointed him out to the Church as vicar of Jesus Christ. St. Sebastian, an officer of the imperial household and commander of a cohort, encouraged his brothers in arms subjected to torments on account of their faith. Diocletian ordered him to ...More

As we pray in the Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus: "Be Thou King of all those who are still involved in the darkness of idolotry or of Islamism; refuse not to draw them all into the light and kingdom of God." Also, pray for the quitter Fr. Josef Ratzinger and the man he enabled Mr. Bergoglio the unFrancis and the rest of the conciliar apostates - living and dead, who have caused so much scandal - that they will be converted and realize there is only one true Faith with the fruits of what you see above of what Christ offers through the only Church He established on this earth. Pray for the collapse of the counterfeit church of conciliarism and the scandalous acts committed over the past 50 years such as top representatives of that false institution giving credence to false religions by entering their mosques and/or kissing the Koran. This is outright apostasy of the enth degree. See Day Three of Church Unity Octave


We rpresent today in the Prophesies and Revelations imparted to St. Bridget of Sweden an eyeopening chapter that answers the question often asked by non-Catholics: how could a good God allow evil? In this lesson God provides the answers when St. Bridget, praying for infidels, asks Jesus Christ, Who replies in a way that should provide a guideline for all Catholics to answer this query for God is glorified through the evil of evil men, although not by their own power and volition. The Son of God illustrates this for her by means of an allegory in which a maiden represents the Church or the soul and her nine brothers represent the nine orders of angels, the king represents Christ, while His three sons represent the three states of mankind. He explains in Chapter Twenty-Four of Book Three Why God allows evil

Martyred for her faith at the early age of twelve, Saint Agnes was one of the youngest-known named martyrs in the Communion of Saints. She was born into a wealthy Roman aristocratic family and was remarkable for her beauty as a child. But the true beauty was interior and as a youth she vowed to live a life of purity and chastity, consecrating herself as a virgin. Even though she was not yet a teen, Roman suitors courted her trying to seduce her but she refused all advances. Word reached the Roman Emperor Diocletian who was relentless in his persecution of Christians. Rather than killing her right away, Diocletian's men sought to discredit her by making her a prostitute and that would further discredit Christianity and dissuade others from becoming Christians. Naturally Agnes rejected all advances and refused to give in to the sins of the flesh. This further infuriated Diocletian and his cohorts who dragged her before the governor. He ordered that ...More

St. Thomas a Kempis composed several prayers in his life including three prayers that carry an Indulgence of 300 days as well as the following: O sweet Saint Agnes, I earnestly implore thy compassion and commend myself to thy prayers. O noble virgin, thou didst despise all earthly things and prefer the love of Christ to the glory of the world. Death was welcome to thee, and the holy angels were waiting for thy soul to convey it into the joys of Paradise, where, adorned with the martyr's palm, thou didst arrive at the nuptials of the heavenly Spouse. I too seek Him; deign to intercede for me that He may grant me health of mind and body, restrain the temptations of the devil, extinguish the desires of the flesh, give me time for true repentance and amendment of life, grant me the remission of all my sins, together with grace to make a good end and a happy death. Amen. For the three special prayers, see Prayers to Saint Agnes



As we pray in the Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus: "Be Thou King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions, or whom discord keeps aloof; call them back to the harbor of truth and unity of faith, so that soon there may be but one flock and one Shepherd," so also, pray for the quitter Fr. Josef Ratzinger and the man he enabled Mr. Bergoglio the unFrancis and the rest of the conciliar apostates - who have caused so much scandal by appeasing rather than converting - that they will be converted and realize there is only one true Faith with the fruits of the holy Apostles Saints Peter and Paul and what Christ offers through the only Church He established on earth. Pray for the collapse of the counterfeit church of conciliarism and the scandalous acts committed over the past 50 years such as vulgarizing those Eastern churches that were in union with Eternal Rome and are now in cahoots with Modernist Rome. Compromise is not and never has been in Christ's lexicon. See Day Four of Church Unity Octave


Because Chapter Twenty-five is only one paragraph about the Blessed Mother's lament to her daughter St. Bridget on the fact that the most innocent Lamb, Jesus Christ, is neglected by His creatures in modern times, we combine here with Chapter Twenty-six where it dovetails, if you will, into an explanation by Christ to the bride on how few honor Him as He identifies the ineffable mystery of the Trinity, and how diabolical sinners obtain God's mercy through contrition and a will to improve. Our Lord responds on how He has mercy on everyone, both Jews and others, and about the double judgment, that is, the sentence for those who are to be condemned and for those who are to be saved. He references Purgatory and Limbo without naming them. Pay attention also to the paragraph in larger bold type in which the Son of God confirms the Church's belief on Baptism of Blood and Baptism of Desire, contrary to the Feeneyite stubborn, strict, albeit heretical narrow-minded stance of EENS. If you thought Chapter Twenty-Four was an eye opener, Chapter Twenty-Six is an eye popper regarding BOB and BOD. Though this is private revelation, it has been approved by the Magisterium of the Church and Jesus' words should wake the echoes in an Affirmation of Church Teaching

Like the saints whose feasts preceded him in January, St. Vincent, (not to be confused with St. Vincent de Paul), was born in Spain in the 3rd Century. and became archdeacon in Saragoza where Our Lady first appeared in 40 AD. He was a great orator and did more than his share of preaching since his bishop, Valerian had a speech impediment. The Romans caught wind of his evangelizing and reported to Diocletian who ordered Dacian the president of that region to silence the saint. Dacian chose the horrendous torture tactic of the rack, stretching Vincent's body asunder. Yet no form of torture could steal Vincent's joy at suffering for Christ. When the rack failed, Dacian tore his flesh with hooks then bound him to a seat of burning iron. When that failed, lard and salt were rubbed into his open wounds. Yet through it all he kept his eyes focused joyfully toward Heaven. Finally, in desperation, Dacian had him thrown into a dungeon locking his feet in a tight stock. But again God intervened, sending His angels to unloose the shackle and inform this brave saint that his reward would be great. Dacian never had the satisfaction of torturing Vincent again for this persevering saint died peacefully before being sentenced again. His bravery and the wonders of his stamina effected many conversions after his death. Upon his death, faithful carried away pieces of his cloths soaked with his blood. His relics are preserved today in an ...More

Here we go again. Each year for the past 43 years we've had to commisserate the devastating Roe vs. Wade decision that has taken the lives of countless souls who never had a chance. As the numbers above note, think of what might have been had those children lived. Would we be in the terrible straits we're in today? Only God knows, but we do know that abortion is one of the four sins that cries to Heaven for vengeance. Perhaps it's fitting that this date falls falls during a string of eight consecutive days commemorating holy martyrs of the Church from January 19 through the 26th with the actual date of the 'Supreme' Court's ruling being the feast of the holy martyrs Sts. Vincent and Anastasius today. The point being that, though the Church does not recognize unborn babies as baptized, we can hope they will fall into the same category as the Holy Innocents who were also not baptized by water but by Baptism of Blood, something the Church has always taught. It really is hypocritical that the Obama Administration and liberal media are so concerned for the "safety and welfare of the children" while being so blatantly pro-abort. What better safety and welfare of the child is there than to protect that baby in the womb? Ah, but there is the rub. Pro-aborts cry out "women's choice" and if they want to choose choice, then be prepared when God so chooses at their particular judgment and it will not go well with them. Therefore, we must continue to want them to recant and repent. Their hollow campaign of saving the children is all a smoke-screen to kill more by not only banning guns but by banning free speech and silencing those who speak out against the sins like abortion and sodomy. We must speak for the silent ones and do so from the rooftops.

To commiserate the 43rd Anniversary of the abominable Roe vs. Wade decision, we present sixteen gems from the past by a former writer Gabriel Garnica, who contributed columns to the DailyCatholic on the horrendous Holocaust in the Womb that continues unabated. While Republican and Democrat (or should that be Demoncrat?!) politicians and ConciLIAR potentates may pause to give lip service, in truth no one is doing anything. All words and no action and the murders continue. The best way to show that the names may change regarding those in charge, it is still the same ol' same ol' stall and shuffle. It's all about the money and it's all about being totally shackled to satan. Those assisting are the devil's delight. Gabriel explained in his columns below that ran from 2004 to 2007:


In chapter twenty-seven of the Prophesies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden she implores Our Lady for answers and the Blessed Mother proceeds to alleviate her fears, then gives way for her divine Son Who illustrates the responsibilities of those who have been given much and each's duty and how these who represent the Church have veered from the path in favor of worldly things and, in so doing, besmirched the souls who lived and died for Christ and His holy Church. Even in the bride's time Rome had begin to stray, not as far as it has today where Eternal Rome has been eclipsed by Modernist Rome. Yet the Triune Divinity, being all merciful waits for the prodigal sons to realize their grave error and return to the bosom of Eternal Rome. Oh, Rome why hast thou abandoned Me?



As we pray in the Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus: "Be Thou King, O Lord, not only of the faithful who have never forsaken Thee, but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned Thee; grant that they may quickly return to their Father's house lest they die of wretchedness and hunger," so also, pray for the abdicator Fr. Josef Ratzinger and the man he enabled Mr. Bergoglio the unFrancis who is advancing his Marxist principles to please Protestants everywhere as the rest of the conciliar apostates follow this false pied piper closer to the abyss. Pray that, rather than appeasing Protestants, they will be converted - along with those who call themselves Christians - and realize what they have created with Vatican II is not Catholic, but rather Protestant in every way except name. Pray they will truly understand there is only one true Faith with the fruits of what you see above the icon of Sts. Peter and Paul of what Christ offers through the only Church He established on earth. Pray for the collapse of the counterfeit church of conciliarism and the scandalous acts committed over the past 50 years such as compromising and accepting Martin Luther who was wrong then and is still wrong now. The infallible tenets of the Council of Trent affirmed that. See Day Five of Church Unity Octave

Born in 1175 of a noble Spanish family, Raymond, at the age of twenty, taught philosophy in Barcelona with marvelous success. Ten years later his rare abilities won for him the degree of Doctor in the University of Bologna, accompanied by many high dignities. A tender devotion to our Blessed Lady, which had increased within him from childhood, determined him in his mature years to renounce all his honors and to enter Her Order of Saint Dominic. There a vision of the Mother of Mercy instructed him to cooperate with his penitent Saint Peter Nolasco, and with James, King of Aragon, in founding the Order of Our Lady of Ransom for the redemption of captives. He began this great work by preaching a crusade against the Moors, and by rousing to penance the Christians enslaved in both soul and body by the infidels. The king of Aragon, a man of great qualities but governed by a ...More

In chapter twenty-eight of Book Three of the Prophecies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden the Blessed Mother instructs the bride about knowing how to love and about four cities where four loves are found and of which of these is properly called perfect love. That would be the fourth city and to reach that utopiapolis one needs to have love, not in the sense the world judges but in what God expects and that love must be ordered, pure, true and perfect. Every soul must strive toward Spiritual Utopia



As we pray in the Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus: "Be Thou King, O Lord, not only of the faithful who have never forsaken Thee, but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned Thee; grant that they may quickly return to their Father's house lest they die of wretchedness and hunger," so also, pray for Fr. Josef Ratzinger who bailed on Christ long ago and pray also for the man he helped put in charge, the man who never met a pagan he didn't admire - one Mr. Bergoglio the unFrancis who has mesmirized as in a trance the world and the rest of the conciliar apostates. Pray that they will be converted and realize what they have created with Vatican II is not Catholic, but rather Protestant in every way except name. Pray they will truly understand there is only one true Faith with the fruits of what you see above the icon of Sts. Peter and Paul of what Christ offers through the only Church He established on earth. Pray for the collapse of the counterfeit church of conciliarism and the scandalous acts committed over the past 50 years such as compromising and accepting Martin Luther who was wrong then and is still wrong now.

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:

      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



    Prayer Before the Crucifix

    Behold, O kind and most sweet Jesus, I cast myself upon my knees in Thy sight, and with the most fervent desire of my soul I pray and beseech Thee that Thou wouldst fix deep within my heart lively sentiments of Faith, Hope and Charity, with true repentance for my sins, and a firm purpose of amendment, whilst with deep affection and grief of soul I ponder within myself and mentally contemplate Thy five most precious Wounds; having before my eyes the words which David in prophesy spoke concerning Thee, O Good Jesus: "They have pierced My hands and My feet; they have numbered all My bones."

    Plenary Indulgence, Condition:
    • Confession
    • Communion
    • One Our Father
    • One Hail Mary
    • One Glory be...
    Pope Pius IX, July 31, 1858


    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.


    The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary. And she conceived of the Holy Ghost.

    Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

    Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

    Behold the handmaid of the Lord. Be it done unto me according to Thy word.

    Hail Mary...

    And the Word was made flesh. And dwelt among us.

    Hail Mary...

    Pray for us, O holy Mother of God. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

    Let us pray.
    Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ, Thy Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by His Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of His resurrection. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.


    Angelus Domini nuntiavit Mariae. Et concepit de Spiritu Sancto.

    Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructis ventris tui, Jesus.

    Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.

    Ecce ancilla Domini. Fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum.

    Ave Maria...

    Et Verbum caro factum est. Et habitavit in nobis.

    Ave Maria...

    Ora pro nobis, sancta Dei Genitrix. Ut digni efficiamur promissionibus Christi.

    Oremus.
    Gratiam tuam, quaesumus Domine, mentibus nostris infunde: ut qui, Angelo nuntiante, Christi Filii tui incarnationem cognovimus, per passionem ejus et crucem ad resurrectionis gloriam perducamur. Per eumdem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.
