The Immaculate Conception: At The Very Heart of the Catholic Faith

I AM THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION." Those words, uttered by the Mother of God herself to Saint Bernadette Soubirous in the Grotto of Massabielle near Lourdes, France, on March 25, 1858, was a Heavenly ratification of the solemn, infallible proclamation of the doctrine of her Immaculate Conception by Pope Pius IX on December 8, 1854, in the Bull Ineffabilis Deus. "I AM THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION."

Our Lady was conceived in the womb of her holy mother, Good Saint Anne, without any stain of Original or Actual Sin in anticipation of the merits that would be won by her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, on the wood of the Holy Cross. She, the Singular Vessel of Devotion, had the perfect integrity of Adam and Eve before their Fall from Grace in the Garden of Eden. It is important, therefore, to get the doctrine of Original Sin right in order to understand the great miracle worked by God in the soul of the fairest flower of our race, Our Lady, from the very first moment of her Immaculate Conception. To get anything about the doctrine of Original Sin wrong leads to the efforts on the part of Modernists to deconstruct the doctrinal definitions of Original Sin and of the Immaculate Conception.

Alas, the Catholic Church, our Holy Mother on earth, our Mater and Magister, is as spotless as the Immaculate Blessed Virgin Mary. Holy Mother Church does not deconstruct infallible dogmatic definitions. Holy Mother Church cannot do so, which is why we need to pray to Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces and our Immaculate Queen, to help us to cleave to true bishops and true priests in the catacombs who make no concessions to the counterfeit church of conciliarism that has promulgated an abominable "liturgy" and whose officials feel feel to "reinterpret" dogmatic truths according to Modernist propositions that have been condemned by the authority of our spotless Mother on earth, Holy Mother Church.

Mindful of the effects of our own sins on our immortal souls and of our need to make reparation for them to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through Our Lady's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, may we make the Secret prayer for today's Holy Mass our own: "Receive the saving Victim we offer to Thee, O Lord, on the solemn feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary: and grant that, as we confess that by Thy prevenient grace she was kept free from every stain of sin; so, by her intercession, we may be delivered from all our offenses. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God."

A blessed Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary to you all!

Although this revised reflection does make more than casual references to the conciliar revolutionaries, I am not addressing today Jorge Mario Bergoglio's "Jubilee Year of Mercy" until Thursday or Friday, as our focus must be on the fairest flower of our race who was unspotted by any stain of sin. Like his predecessors before him in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, Bergoglio has no conception of the horror of personal sin and, believing as the naturalist that he is, thinks that it is actually counterproductive to urge those living in states of Mortal Sin in the objective order of things to change as they might be offended and walk away from what he thinks is the Catholic Church. No one who loves God as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively through His true Church, the Catholic Church, can be indifferent to the horror of sin, which caused Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to suffer unspeakable horrors in His Sacred Humanity during His Passion and death on the wood of the Holy Cross and caused the Swords of Sorrow to be thrust through and though the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of His Most Blessed Mother, she is is our Immaculate Queen of Heaven and of Earth.

May God have mercy on us all in this era of apostasy and betrayal.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

It is my hope to part five of "Sober Up" posted by tomorrow morning. The reigning caesar and the Argentine Apostate will have starring roles in the commentary. commentary.

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

Saints Nicholas and Ambrose: Defenders of the Faith and Foes of Heresy

This is a very brief reflection on Saint Nicholas and Saint Ambrose, both of whom should inspire us to be uncompromising in our defense of the Holy Faith and unswerving in our refusal compromise in the slightest to the spirit of a world filled with every error and heresy imaginable.

Part five of "Sober Up," which deals with the "leftist" hypocrisy concerning the American presidential election, should appear by Friday, December 9, 2016.

Finally, although we have received two non-deductible financial gifts recently that made possible the payment of pressing bills, we are in need of further and quite immediate assistance, and thus it is that I ask those who support the work of this website and have the means to do so (exempting those who have given to us recently, of course!) to make a non-tax deductible financial gift at this time.

Thank you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Sober Up, part four

This article, which, despite the time stamp (which in this instance indicates when I saved an unpublished draft) was published a little It is too late (or early) to do anything other than after two o'clock this morning. It has undergone a few revisions in various places, including taking note of the visit paid by the Ozone Man himself to Trump Tower today, Talk about false opposites! This article is very long and details.

Part five of this continuing series will focus on the reaction of the false opposite of the naturalist "left"--a category that includes both Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro and, of course, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, to the results of the American presidential election.

This part of the series focuses on some simple facts that are designed to help those who are lost in the thrall of the moment to sober up as naturalism can never be used as any kinds of means to fight the evils engendered by naturalism.

Saint Francis Xavier: A Catholic "Fundamentalist" Who Gave No Quarter to False Religions

This a substantially revised and enlarged reflection on the life and the tireless apostolic work of the great Jesuit missionary and one the original members of Saint Ignatius of Loyola’s Company of Jesus, Saint Francis Xavier.

The title of the revised article reflects the disparaging term that Jorge Mario Bergoglio used to compare believing Catholics with modern-day faithful, believing Mohammedans who take the words of the blasphemous Koran seriously by committing acts of wanton murder against “infidels.” Saint Francis Xavier worked tirelessly for the conversion of those who belonged to false religions. Then again, he was a true Jesuit priest. Jorge Mario Bergoglio is a lay Jesuit revolutionary masquerading as a “pope," a man who expelled himself from the bosom of the Catholic Church in his youth as he mocked the Immemorial Mass of Tradition and taught to disparage Catholic doctrine as being in opposition to the Gospel of Christ the King.

This is also the First Saturday of the month of December.

Blessed Edmund Campion: A Champion of Catholicism, Not Conciliarism

Although I am still working on part four of "Sober Up," which is taking a very long time because of the care that needs to be taken to make various points at a time many Catholics are euphoric over the results of the elections on November 8, 2016, I took time today to revise a reflection on the life and martyrdom of Blessed Edmund Campion, S.J., who was tortured and killed on this day, December 1, four hundred thirty-five years ago, that is, on December 1, 1581.

Blessed Edmund Campion was put to death on orders of "not so good" Queen Bess, that is, the wretched Queen Elizabeth I. Blessed Edmund did not give "joint blessings" with Anglican ministers have the conciliar "popes," and it is interesting to note that the four "cardinals" whose red hats are said to be in jeopardy for going public with their dubia about Amoris Laetitia have not said a word in protest about any of those "joint blessings" and other ecumenical travesties.

Again, I am sorry for the delay in completing "Sober Up, part four."

Jorge Grieves For His Fellow Infidel, Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz

The title is self-explanatory.

"Sober Up, part four" will appear by Wednesday, November 30, 2016, the Feast of Saint Andrew the Apostle, the brother of Saint Peter. It appears as though my belief, expressed at the beginning of the article posted on Saturday ("Jorge Can't Even Keep Track of His Own Heresies!), that the Clinton campaign might be cahoots with Jill Stein's recount demand in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania was entirely correct. The goal here is simple: to run out the clock on the recount so as to prevent the Republican electors in those three states from casting their ballots for Donald John Trump and Michael Pence three weeks from today, that is, on Monday, December 19, 2016. No candidate would have a majority if this happened, meaning that the United States House of Representatives (every state would have but a single vote) would elect the President on or about January 6, 2017, after the President of the United States Senate, Vice President Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., opens the electors' ballots and declares that no one has received a majority of the electoral vote. The Senate would then vote for the Vice President.(each senator would vote individually).

There will be more by Wednesday.

Although not on the universal calendar of the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church, the Feast of Saint Catherine Laboure may be celebrated today, an Advent ferial day. My reflection on the Miraculous Medal is found below this new article about the death the infidel named Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz and Jorge Mario Bergoglio's "sorrow" about it.

Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal: In Ways That Baffle The Minds of "Modern Men"

Yesterday, Sunday, November 27, 2016, was the First Sunday of Advent and the Commemoration of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. Although this feast is not observed on the General Roman Calendar of the Catholic Church, it is nevertheless an important one to commemorate as this powerful sacramental is yet another sign of the love that pours out from the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces, despite our own ingratitude and infidelities.

This reflection was written in 2010 and published in two parts. It was a year ago now that it was combined into one part and revised slightly in a few places.

Republished: John Calvin Could Not Be Happier

One of the saddest spectacles here in a land suffused with the ethos of Judeo-Calvinist-Masonic naturalism is how the secular celebration of thanksgiving day has eclipsed Christmas Day in the homes of many Americans. This is quite by design as it was the intention of the thirty-third degree Freemason named Franklin Delano Roosevelt to promote shopping during a time when our attention must be on withdrawing from the world.

As there are a few new readers to this site, including some from Protestant and even Jewish backgrounds who have expressed an interesting in converting to the true Faith, it is my hope that this republished reflection might of assistance in demonstrating the extent to which the warfare against Christ the King that entered its overt phase with the Protestant Revolution in 1517 has shaped what passes for American "culture" to the detriment of souls and thus to all of social order.

An Advent reflection is found below, and my new article for the day, "Jorge Can't Keep Track of His Own Heresies!", is to be found below that reflection (and is listed on the Articles page, which is now editable again thanks to the efforts of the Catholic gentleman who does the updates required to maintain this site).

As Advent Begins In 2016

An original commentary, "Jorge Can't Keep Track of His Own Heresies!", was posted shortly after Midnight this morning.

This is a revised Advent reflection. Another such reflection will follow shortly, and it will then be time to write my commentary on two Latin American revolutionaries, Fidel and Jorge, which is turning out to be very long and detailed.

Jorge Can't Even Keep Track of His Own Heresies!

I made the mistake at looking at the conciliar Vatican website’s last night, whereupon I discovered that Jorge Mario Bergoglio had spoken about “eternal damnation” at the Casa Santa Marta yesterday morning, Friday, November 25, 2016, the Feast of Saint Catharine of Alexandria. Don’t worry, Bergoglio hasn’t embraced the Catholic Faith. Not even close. This article explains why.

Given the fact that I had have written about Bergoglio’s blathering at a late hour, “Sober Up, part four,” not that too many of you are interested in reading it, that is, will be delayed by a few more days, and the death of the mass murdering Marxist named Fidel Castro, who will likely receive warm words of praise from the “pope of the poor,” requires a bit of attention, of course.

There will be three revised reflections that will be posted by the middle part of the afternoon, and I want to inform readers that I am unable to update the Articles page at this time as there is some kind of technical glitch that prevents me from doing so. I hope to have this resolved soon, but I am entirely dependent upon the expertise of the Catholic gentleman who redesigned the site in July of 2014 and performs updates on the software as needed.

Finally, non-tax-deductible financial gifts are always welcomed. Now is a particularly good time for them. Thank you!

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
