"Civilized" Monsters

Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro and Jorge Mario Bergoglio live in protective bubbles that prevent anything from bursting the protective bubbles in which they can content themselves with their inter-related falsehoods.

This is but a brief effort to provide a bit of Catholic perspective on these bubbles to those believe that Catholicism is the one and only foundation of personal and social order.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Matthew the Apostle: From Caesar's Collector of Tribute To God's Collector of Souls

Today is the Feast of Saint Matthew the Apostle and Evangelist. Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ called Levi from his duties as a collector of tribute for Caesar to follow Him. Levi quit his position as a tax collector to become a collector of souls for God and His true Church.

Saint Matthew wrote His Gospel to convince his fellow Jews to accept Our Lord as the Divine Redeemer and to convert to the true Faith, Catholicism. This is quite a contrast with the work of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who esteems Talmudic Judaism as an instrument of "justice" although it denies the Sacred Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ and wages warfare upon those who seek to restore the Social Reign of Christ the King, to say nothing of the fact that many of its rabbis,including his pal Abraham Skorka, support abortion and perversity under cover of the civil law. Quite a difference. It's the difference between fidelity and apostasy, between Catholicism and conciliarism.

Today is also Ember Wednesday in September, a day of fast for all Catholics between the ages of twenty-one and sixty and a day of partial abstinence from meat for all Catholics seven years of age and older. Let us make good use of these Ember Days to restore rigor and vigor to our interior lives as we seek to make reparation for our sins by gladly accepting whatever crosses are sent our way in order whatever merit we might earn by do doing to the Throne of the Blessed Trinity as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The next original article is in the process of being written. It will comment on the way in which the "civilized" monsters of Modernity and Modernism continue to live in a fantasy world of their making in order to "save the planet" as the slaughter of innocents at all stages of life reaches new depths of monstrous depravity. Yes, both Jorge Mario Bergoglio and Barack Hussein Obama will be mentioned as they were quite busy on the Feast of Saint Eustachius and his Companions yesterday.

Openly Admitting What Has Been The Case From The Beginning

Amoris Laetitia has done the cause of truth a tremendous service by forcing at least some of those who have not thus far seen with clarity that the countefeit church of conciliarism is not the Catholic Church and that its agents of Antrichrist have waged a relentless war on the nature of dogmatic truth ever since the "election" of Angelo Roncalli as "Pope John XXIII" on October 28, 1958, the Feast of Saints Simon and Jude to see at least one admit that a conciliar "pope" has formally embraced heresy.

Alas, although Bergoglio has made matters clearer than before, the adversary has been using his agents in the counterfeit church of conciliar to so condition Catholics to accept heresy, blasphemy, sacrilege and apostasy on an incremental basis that most of those attached to the structures of this false religious sect in the mistaken belief that it is the Catholic Church will simply shrug their shoulders as have most Anglicans when their "bishops" have endorsed some outrageous practice or proposition.

We need to pray for the restoration of a true pope on the Throne of Saint Peter!

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

On the Feast of the Seven Dolors of the Blessed Virgin Mary in September

Today is the Feast of the Seven Dolors of the Blessed Virgin Mary in September.

We are called to meditate on the Seven Dolors of Our Lady every day of our lives. While there are many good meditations on the sufferings of Our Lady, including those provided by the revelations of Anne Katherine Emmerich and the Venerable Mary of Agreda, the late Father Frederick Faber has given us much food for inspirational meditation in his The Foot of the Cross, published originally as The Dolors of Mary in 1857.

Consider this brief excerpt from Father Faber's reflections:

"But let us make the world stand still, and see how it looks. If our common love for God, which is so poor, is irritated by the sight, what must Mary have suffered? For what is irritation to our weakness to her would be the most deep and transcending sorrow. God comes to His creation. It does not stir. It cannot. It lies in the hollow beneath Him, and has no escape. He comes in the beauty of a mercy, which is almost incredible, because it is so beautiful. But seemingly it does not attract the world. He draws nigh. Creation must do something now. It freezes itself up before His eye. He may have other worlds, more fertile, more accessible to Him, than this. In the spiritual tropics, where the angels dwell, He may perhaps be welcome. But not here. This is the North Pole of His universe. He shed His life's blood upon it, and it would not thaw. It is unmanageable, unnavigable, uninhabitable for Him. He can do nothing at all with it, but let His sun make resplendent colored lights in the icebergs, or bid the moon shine with a wanner loveliness than elsewhere, or fill the long-night sky with the streamers of the Aurora, which even the Esquimaux, burrowing in his hut, will not go out to see. The only difference is that the material pole understands its business. which is to make ice in all imaginable shapes; whereas we men are so used to our own coldness, that we do not know how cold we are, and imagine ourselves to be the temperate zone of God's creation."

Our sins helped to thrust those Seven Swords of Sorrow through and through Our Lady's Immaculate Heart at various points during her life, including during her Divine Son's Passion and Death. We must resolve never to grieve her Immaculate Heart again as consider our joy and our privilege to live penitentially as the consecrated slaves to her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the same Immaculate Heart. (Father Frederick Faber, The Foot of the Cross, the Dolors of Mary.)

We can help to make reparation for our sins that have grieved the Immaculate Heart of Mary if we pray more and more Rosaries each day, if we help to propagate devotion to her Seven Dolors. Indeed, Our Lady promises us the following graces if we promote devotion to her Seven Dolors:

1) I will grant peace to their families

2) They will be enlightened about the divine mysteries.

3) I will console them in their pains and I will accompany them in their work.

4) I will give them as much as they ask for as long as it does not oppose the adorable will of my divine Son or the sanctification of their souls.

5) I will defend them in their spiritual battles with the infernal enemy and I will protect them at every instant of their lives.

6) I will visibly help them at the moment of their death, they will see the face of their Mother.

7. I have obtained (This Grace) from my divine Son, that those who propagate this devotion to my tears and dolors, will be taken directly from this earthly life to eternal happiness since all their sins will be forgiven and my Son and I will be their eternal consolation and joy.

As a terrible sinner, I am counting on my own promoting of devotion to the Seven Dolors of the Blessed Virgin Mary to help me just a little bit at the moment of my Particular Judgment. What about you?

Yes, an original article is nearing completion. I am, however, assembling these devotional articles into two volumes of books as I believe that it is only a matter of time before our government monitors shut down websites deemed to be "offensive" to those who are steeped in their sins.

Finally, please remember the soul of the late Father John Joseph Sullivan, who was my seminary professor at Holy Apostles Seminary in the 1983-1984 academic year, on this day, which would have been his one hundredth birthday had he not died in May of 2000. I will have a revised remembrance in his honor at some point in the next week after two more original articles get published.

Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and all of the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

A blessed Feast of the Seven Dolors of the Blessed Virgin Mary to you all.

By This Sign We Shall Conquer The Enemies of Our Salvation

The Saviour of the world hung on the wood of the Holy Cross: Ecce lignum Crucis, in quo salus mundit pependit (Behold the wood of the Cross, on which hung the Saviour of the world. (Adoration of the Cross, Good Friday Liturgy.)

The Cross of the Divine Redeemer was displayed prominently on street corners and in the nooks and crannies of every village in Europe during the era of Christendom. There is no "expiration date" on the Cross of the Divine Redeemer's relevance to the life of any man or of any nation. We must lift high the Cross in our own daily lives and we must plant it firmly in the soil of our nation without any apology whatsoever as Catholicism is the one and only foundation of personal and social order.

We must also remember that Our Lady stands at the foot of her Divine Son's Most Holy Cross in every true offering of Holy Mass just as she stood at the foot of the Holy Cross on Good Friday. She stands with us as we bear our own crosses in our daily lives. We must, therefore, seek the assistance of the Mother of God in lifting high her Divine Son's Holy Cross in our daily lives, praying as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit.

The cross is ever present in each of our lives, and for this we must say with Saint Francis of Assisi, Deo gratias! Penance is the path to Heaven. We do our penances by carrying our crosses with gratitude. Isn't it great to be a Catholic?

Hail, O Holy Cross! Hail!

A blessed Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross to each of you.

Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.

The Holy Name of Mary Must Be On Our Lips At All Times

Today is the Feast of the Holy Name of Mary, commemorating the victory won by King Jan Sobieski of Poland over the Mohammedans at the Gates of Vienna on September 12, 1683. The troops under the command of Jan Sobieski exclaimed "Jesus, Mary, Sobieski!" as they prayed their Rosaries and routed the Turkish forces.

Each of us does battle every day with the Turks, that is, with the forces of the world, the flesh, and the devil. We must call upon the Holy Name of Mary, something we do at least one hundred fifty-three times every day if we pray all fifteen mysteries of Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary. This sweet name of the Mother of God must be on our lips at all times, and it must be exclaimed by public officials as she is honored as the Queen of Heaven and on earth, yes, of each and every nation on earth, including the United States of America. No one should be ashamed at any time to proclaim the Holy Name of Mary publicly. Indeed, we must do so with joy and confidence.

Saint Louis de Montfort taught us in True Devotion to Mary that those who are the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary should address others with a Marian salutation. How felicitous it is, therefore, to greet others with Ave Maria! or a Salve Regina! How glorious it is to make invocations such as "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, we love you, save souls!" or "Sweet Heart of Mary, be my salvation" or "Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and the hour of our death."

May Our Lady, she who is our life, our sweetness and our hope, help us to grow in this virtue, especially in this time of apostasy and betrayal.

A blessed Feast of the Holy Name of Mary to you all!

Sweet Name of Mary, be our salvation.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

An original article, "Deplorably Demagogic and Blasphemous," was published about twenty minutes before this revised reflection. Please scroll below.

Deplorably Demagogic and Blaspehmous

Although I am not writing about the farce of naturalism on a regular basis any longer as it is difficult to find anything “new” to write that I have not written over a thousand times before on this site alone, there are times when a newsworthy development provides me with an opportunity to do so.

Such an opportunity came in the form of Timothy Michael Dolan Kaine’s theological “expertise” as he expressed the hope that the conciliar Vatican would change its “stance” on the perverse absurdity of “marriage” between two persons of the same gender.

Kaine’s idiocy, coming as it did just two days after the pneumonia-ridden Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton spoke to practitioners of moral perversity at a fundraising evet in the Borough of Manhattan of the City of New York, New York as she denounced half of Donald John Trump’s supporters as a “bucket of deplorables,” thus provided the basis for his new and rather lengthy commentary that has taken close to 2:00 a.m. to complete on the Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary.

A reflection on today’s feast will be published within thirty minutes or so of the posting of this commentary.

A blessed Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary to you all!

Saint Peter Claver, S.J.: South America's True Liberator

This is a tribute to Saint Peter Claver, S.J, whose true missionary zeal for the conversion and sanctification and salvation of souls stands in vast contrast to the blase and practically indifferent attitude of the conciliar "popes," including Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis.

Saint Peter Claver, S.J., personally baptized over 300,000 people in Colombia who were destined for chattel slavery in the Americas. Saint Peter Claver freed those souls from enslavement to the devil by means of Original Sin, equipping them to offer up the injustices of chattel slavery as disciples of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and as the devoted clients of His Most Blessed Mother. Saint Peter Claver's example does indeed stand in stark contrast to that of the revolutionaries of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Saint Peter Claver, pray for us!

Rejoice and Give Thanks: Maria Bambina Was Born On This Day

Today is the great feast day of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, she who is the fairest flower of our race.

The angels rejoiced around the crib where Good Saint Anne placed her all-holy daughter, who had been conceived without any stain of Original Sin nine months before, that is, on December 8. The New Eve, whose act of perfect obedience to the will of God the Father at the moment that Saint Gabriel the Archangel announced to her that she would be the very Mother of God untied the knot of the first Eve's prideful disobedience in the Garden of Eden, shone at her Nativity with exterior beauty and brightness that reflected the interior beauty and brightness of her immortal soul, filled with grace at the very moment of Immaculate Conception. The favor of God rested upon Our Lady from all eternity.

How can words capture our gratitude and joy to God for giving us Our Lady to be our own Heavenly Mother and Queen? They can't. Words can only approximate our gratitude and joy this day--and every day of our lives--over the fact that the Singular Vessel of Devotion in whose Virginal and Immaculate Womb would be conceived Our Divine Redeemer.

We would not have any chance of getting to Heaven if Our Lady had not been conceived and born. We have no chance of getting to Heaven without Our Lady's help, which is why we, as the consecrated slaves of her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, must cling to her at all times, especially by means of wearing--and the fulfilling the terms of our enrollment in--her Brown Scapular and by praying as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit.

Perhaps the best birthday gift that we can give to Our Lady, apart from our worthy reception of her Divine Son in Holy Communion at a true offering of Holy Mass at the hands of a true bishop or a true priest, is to resolve now to do live more penitentially in reparation for our sins and those of the world world. By living more penitentially and by praying more Rosaries each day, you see, our souls might--emphasis on might--begin to be filled with more fervor and tenderness for Our Most Blessed Mother, she who made possible our salvation and who is the Mediatrix of All Graces.

Yesterday's article underwent a bit of tweaking fourteen hours after it was published. One more addition will be added later today, and material from The New Edition of The Mystical City of God relating to the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary will be incorporated into the revised reflection on today's feast day.

A blessed Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary to you all.

Medically Induced and Judicially Sanctioned Sorrow

Baby Israel Stinson has become the latest high-profile victim of a medical industry and judicial system that are but the end-results of the Protestant Revolution against Social Reign of Christ the King as It must be exercised by Our King’s One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. Spiritual death must lead to bodily death, and the modern merchants of death, men who are nothing other than a new breed of Aztecs, albeit in white coats and black robes, have an insatiable desire to kill off those whose lives they believe to be serving no “useful” purpose.

May God have mercy on us all!

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Cloud, pray for us.
