The Adversary is Always Prowling About the World to Foment Hatred and Violence

The hatred of the adversary for us is such that he, having failed in his rebellion against God before the beginning of the world, wants to do the next best thing, that is, to inspire hatred in the souls of men to drive to hate, insult, injure, wound, and kill each other in the hope that they will persevere in such hatred until they die and thus spend all eternity in hell with him to be tormented by his hatred of them, their hatred for each other, and for their hatred for themsel

To Reconcile Sinners One Unto the Other: Saint John Gualbert

I am offering you a  revised reflection on the holy life and work of Saint John Gualbert that was written many a moon ago. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint John Gualbert, pray for us.

Saints Nabor and Felix, pray for us.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio Has a Burning Hatred for Catholic Faith, Worship, and Morals

This title is self-explanatory.

The next original commentary should appear by Sunday, July 14, 2024, the Eighth Sunday after Pentecost and the Commemoration of Saint Bonaventure. 

Although I am still not commenting on the absurd situation unfolding before our very eyes concerning whether a man in serious cognitive decline will be replaced by his fellow criminals of the organized crime family of the false opposite of the naturalist left, the next commentary on this site with deal with Donald John Trump's success in assuring that the Republican Party platform's language about abortion is "gentler and kinder," shall we say, than in the past. This craven concession to expediency might win votes, but it does do the cause of fundamental justice founded in truth any good at all. This is what happens when the "lesser of two evils" meets up with the supposed "greater of two evils." 

Finally, although seveal people have responded to private appeals for non-deductible financial gifs that have been made of them, it sure would be nice if more those who read these articles and profit from them and have the financial wherewithal to help could much such non-deductible gifts at this time.

Thank you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Rufina and Secunda, pray for us.

The Seven Holy Brothers, pray for us.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio is Collecting Scalps

This commentary is about the "excommunication" of "Archbishop" Carlo Maria Vigano.

It is my hope to have another commentary on Tuesday, July 9, 2024, or Wednesday, July 10, 2024.

Imprudent Actions Have Consequences

Late night update on July 5, 2024: I am suspending work on my next commentary because of the conciliar "excommunication" of "Archbishop" Carlo Maria Vigano, which requires more time to conplete than is prudent for me to attempt after many late night articles in the past few weeks. Unlike the decrepit old man in the White House who cannot even remember if he watched a reply of his debate with his predecessor just eight days ago, my hours of alertness are not limited to six hours a day, but eighteen hour days are harder than they were a decade ago. Thus, I will get back to the computer tomorrow afternoon, the Octave Day of the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul. Thank you for  your patience and I invite anyone who benefits from the work of this site and who has the financial wherwithal to do so to make non-tax-deductible financial gifts at this time.

 

This commentary is about the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States of America in the case of Donald J. Trump, Petitioner v. United States, July 1, 2024.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Anthony Mary Zaccaria, pray for us.

Dehumanize the Preborn, Dehumanize the Victims of Illegal Immigrants' Crimes

The title is self-explanatory. Indeed, it will have to be self-explanatory as I have not fully recovered from the writing the spate of articles recently.

Nonetheless, though, I will be back at the computer later today, the Feast of Pope Saint Leo II within the Octave of the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, to start writing my commentary about the decision rendered by the Supreme Court of the United States of America on Monday, July 1, 2024, the Feast of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus, concerning presidential immunity from criminal prosecution for their official acts and conduct. I hope to have it published by tomorrow, July 4, 2024, but it may not be published until Friday, July 5, 2024, the Feast of Saint Anthony Mary Zaccaria withint he Octave of the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul. Thank you for your patience.

Speaking of patience, I have been patiently awaiting non-tax-deductible financial gifts from those who access this site, suppport its work, and have the financial wherewithal to contribute financially to the continuation of my work. Thank you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Pope Saint Leo II, pray for us.

Magnificat (July 2, 2024)

Today is the magnificent feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary to her cousin, Saint Elizabeth, and her preborn Divine Son’s preborn Precursor, Saint John the Baptist.

This date, July 2, marks the end of the period of Our Lady’s Visitation, which began on April 2, lasting until the day after the octave day of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist. Our Lady’s perfect Charity for her cousin and her Divine Son’s Precursor should prompt us to perform the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy at all times, making sure as well to proclaim the Holy Name of Mary, she whom all generations are duty bound to call blessed, as the Mother of God who made possible our salvation by her perfect fiat to the will of God the Father at the Annunciation and who is the Queen of Heaven and on earth, the very Immaculate Conception who prays for us now and at the hour of our deaths.

I am working on the next original commentary, which I hope to complete late today, Tuesday, July 2, 2024. Work will then commence on a commentary about the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States of America about presidential immunity that is causing the histrionic denizens of the the false opposite of the naturalist "left" all manner of fits. Those who claim to want to protect "democracy" are unwilling to let the "people" render a verdict on who should be elected to the presidency on November 5, 2024, which is why they have resorted to lawfare.

This is a farcical system whose degeneration to this point is only the result of founding principles that provided no place for Christ the King and His true Church to guide men and their nations in all that pertains to the good of souls, upon which the entirety of social order rests.

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

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Processus and Martinian, pray for us.

Supreme Inconsistencies

The last original commentary on this site, Supreme Delusions Enable Supreme Tyrants to Supremely Crush Dissent, dealt with Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s unjustifiable finding that the petitioners seeking to permanently enjoin the administration of Rip van Winkle Biden from coercing various social media outlets to censor “disinformation.”

This commentary deals with the majority opinion written by Chief Justice John Glover, Jr., in the case of Loper Bright Enterprises v. Gina Raimondo, Secretary of Commerce, June 28, 2024. As wrong as Roberts has been on many cases, he was correct in this case, although there are particular ironies about his overruling of the unconstitutional decision of the Court in the case of Chevron USA, Inc. v. Natural Resources Defense Council, June 25, 1984, as he explicitly overruled Chevron. This is interesting as Roberts wrote in the case of Thomas E. Dobbs, Mississippi State Health Office v. Jackson Women’s Organization, June 24, 2022, that overturning Roe v. Wade was a violation of stare decisis. Well, I suppose there is stare decisis and then there is stare decisis.

Even though the Court also issued a major decision on Friday, June 28, 2024, concerning around three hundred people who have been convicted of “obstructing an official proceeding” for having trespassed on the grounds of the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021, I am holding back on writing about that case until after the Court issues its decision on presidential immunity today, Monday, July 1, 2024, the Feast of the Most Precious Blood of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and the Commemoration of the Octave of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist. I will comment on Friday case and the presidential immunity case in the same commentary, which may appear until Wednesday, July 3, 2024, the Feast of Pope Saint Leo II within the Octave of Saints Peter and Paul.

I will be working on another commentary today to be published by tomorrow, July 2, 2024, the Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Commemoration of Saints Processus and Martinian.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.

Saint John the Baptist, pray for us.

On the Feast of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus, the Laver of Redemption (2024)

The Most Precious Blood of Jesus is our laver of redemption, as our own sins, each and every single one of them, caused It to be shed during the events of Holy Thursday and Good Friday.

It was the thought of coming into contact with the horror of our sins, the very antithesis of His Sacred Divinity, that caused Our Lord to sweat droplets of His Most Precious Blood in His Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane.

It was our sins that caused the Most Precious Blood of Jesus to be shed so terribly during His cruel scourging at the Pillar.

It was our sins that caused the Most Precious Blood of Jesus to be shed as He was crowned with thorns to mock His Sacred Kingship over men and their nations.

It was our sins that caused the Most Precious Blood of Jesus to continue to be shed from the scourging and the crowning as He walked up the steps to be judged by the Roman procurator, Pontius Pilate. Droplets of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus are still venerated by pilgrims as proceed on their knees up the Sancta Scala in Rome right across from the Basilica di San Giovanni Laterano.

It was our sins that caused the Most Precious Blood to be shed as Our Lord’s hands and knees were crucified. It was our sins that caused the Most Precious Blood of Jesus to be shed unto Its last drop as He hung on the gibbet of the Holy Holy Cross for three hours, flowing in a torrent as Our Lord’s wounded side was pierced with the lance of Saint Longinus.

What is It that is poured out onto our souls when they are Absolved by a true priest in the Sacred Tribunal of Penance?

The Most Precious Blood of Jesus.

The Most Precious Blood of Jesus strengthens us when we receive It worthily in Holy Communion.

It was the shedding of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus on the wood of the Holy Cross that ratified the New and Eternal Covenant He inaugurated at the Last Supper, thereby obliterating forever the old sacrifices of the blood of bulls and goats and lambs in Temple worship, thus superseding he Old Covenant of the Jews.

We must celebrate this great Feast of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus, which was pumped through Our Divine Redeemer’s Sacred Body by His Most Sacred Heart, the very font of Mercy, with gratitude that we, sinners who caused It to be shed in torrents under the most unspeakably cruel conditions, are bathed unto our redemption by Its merits.

May we never take the Most Precious Blood of Jesus for granted.

A blessed Feast of the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ and Octave Day of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist to you all! Today is also the First Friday of July, the month of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus.

A new commentary will be posted within moment's of this reflection's republication.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.

Saint John the Baptist, pray for us.
