What Does It Matter that Jorge Drops A Few More Titles When He Has Dropped the Holy Faith?

The dominance of the China/Chinese/Wuhan/Covid-19/Coronavirus has been such as to delay other writing projects, including putting the final touches on Volume 3 of “To Live in Light of Eternity,” which I to have available for sale for the vast multitudes of those who will purchase it by the end of this coming week.

For the moment, though, I have been able to complete a commentary on the “shock” and “outrage” exhibited by “Archbishop” Carlo Maria Vigano about the fact that Jorge Mario Bergoglio relegated the title of “Vicar of Christ” as something merely “historical” in nature and not signifying the office he thinks he holds.

Obviously, Bergoglio is not the Vicar of Christ as he is the sixth in the current line of antipopes. However, the Sherlock Holmeses, Perry Masons, Jacques Clouseaus, Maxwell Smarts and Robert T. Ironsides amongst the rank of “conservative” and semi-traditional Catholic continue to strain to find “clues” to discover what Jorge Mario Bergoglio thinks of the papacy and the Catholic Faith.

This commentary, which is not as long as my trilogy on the coronavirus, is intended to provide a rather through set of reminders that the problem we face is a false church. The conciliar “popes” have simply been and continue to be the “front men” for an enterprise that is of, by and for Antichrist.

Please continue to pray the fifty-four day Rosary Novena, now in its twenty-fifth day (Joyful Mysteries today, Easter Saturday), for an end to the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service (and the false conciliar religion which produced it and is expressed therein) and for the restoration of a true pope on the Throne of Saint Peter.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Sin: More Deadly Than the Coronavirus, part three: Inflating the Numbers

[An Easter Wednesday Update: Although I am not going to revise the text of this current article again, I did discover two interesting pieces of information that support the general conclusions included in parts two and three of this three-part series.

The first piece of information concerns a report that underscores the judgments that had been reached by Dr. Francis Boyle that he offered to Geopolitics & Empire that were reprinted in the March 2020 issue of Christian Order and included in part two of this seires. 

Specifically, a writer named Ben Lowsen is questioning whether Xi Jinping Sickened the World Deliberately. I think that the answer is in the affirmative as Xi Jinping knows that he has a veritable fifth column of support in the American academic, journalistic, political, bureaucratic, entertainment, sports, banking, financial, commerical and medical communities. Look, the United States of America is on  on the "fast track" to becoming the kind of surveillance state that exists in Red China.

Secondly, it turns out that Dr. Anthony Fauci is a huge admirer of Madame Defarge (aka Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton): Leaked E-mails Show Fauci Called "Hillary's Doctor Admirer" and Wanted Her to Know "We  All Love Her. Just another reason not to trust Dr. Anthony Fauci over and above the bogus information and supposed medical expertise that he has been offering to the administration of President Donald John Trump.]

I hereby present to you part three of “Sin: More Deadly Than the Coronavirus," which has undergone a few revisions late on Easter Tueday that provide more documentation for the simple fact that we are witnessing a major fraud being committed upon the people of the United States of America and the rest of the world.

Work now resumes on a Bergoglio-themed commentary.

A continued blessed Easter to you all!

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Justin Martyr (whose feast is suppressed this year), pray for us.

Behold the Empty Tomb in Jerusalem: Resurrexi, et Adhuc Tecum, Alleluia!

Alleluia! He is Risen! Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ has made manifest His Easter Victory over sin and eternal death. “O death, where is Thy victory. O death, where is thy sting?”

We shall all indeed rise again: but we shall not all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall rise again incorruptible: and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption; and this mortal must put on immortality. And when this mortal hath put on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy victory? O death, where is thy sting?

Now the sting of death is sin: and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who hath given us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast and unmoveable; always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Cor. 15: 51-58)

Our Lord made His Easter Victory over sin and eternal death manifest first to His Most Blessed Mother, who stood so valiantly at the foot of His Most Holy Cross as she cooperated completely in His Redemptive Act, bringing us forth as the spiritual sons and daughters of the living God in great pain by means of adoption. W need to rely on the help of Our Lady as the consecrated slaves of Her Divine Son through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart so that we may persevere in a state of Sanctifying Grace with perfect contrition for our sins until the moments of our deaths so that our bodies and souls will be resurrected on the Last Day at the General Judgment of the Living and the Dead and counted among those destined for the enjoyment of an unending Easter Sunday of glory in Paradise.

Nothing else matters if we save our souls by cooperating with the graces won for us by the shedding of every single drop of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross and that flow into our hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces. Nothing else matters if we fail to soul our souls.

This glorious day of Easter rejoicing is meant to be but a foretaste of Heaven. Let us live as redeemed creatures as we reject the naturalism of Modernity and the Modernism of the soul-killing agents of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad!

A blessed Easter Sunday to you all!

Alleluia! Christ is Risen!

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Holy Saturday: Anticipating the Joy of Our Lord's Easter Victory over Sin and Eternal Death

Silence filled the earth in the forty hours between the death of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on the wood of the Holy Cross yesterday, Good Friday, and His glorious Resurrection at dawn on Easter Sunday. Silence filled the earth as the God-Man went down into Limbo to announce the news of His Redemptive Act to the souls of the just who had awaited His Coming and His Sacrifice in atonement for the sins of all men from the beginning until the end of time.

Christ the King is the Light of the World. It is His light that is symbolized by the Easter fire that is lit at the beginning of the Easter Vigil. The Light of Christ breaks through the darkness of sin and eternal death, leading us by the fire of His bright, burning love as we continue our desert journey of life to the Promised Land of the New and Eternal Canaan made possible by His immolation on the wood of the Holy Cross yesterday, Good Friday. We must follow the Light of Christ as He, the New Moses, leads us as the first Moses led the Hebrew people as he followed a column of cloud during the day and a column of fire during the night, as we reminded once again during the Prophecies that are read during the Easter Vigil.

The Light of Christ, Our Crucified and Resurrected Saviour, will penetrate the souls of those who are baptized today and of those who are confirmed. It will penetrate the souls of those of us who were unable to receive Him in Holy Communion yesterday at the Mass of the Presanctified. It will penetrate the souls of those who are regenerated once again in the Sacred Tribunal of Penance. The Light of Christ that is symbolized by the Paschal Candle is meant to permeate every aspect of our lives without any exception at any time for any reason.

The Light of Christ has indeed broken through the darkness of sin and eternal death. Our Lord is making manifest His Easter Victory over the power of sin and eternal death. A fifty day period of glorious celebration is about to break upon us. Although the Easter Vigil is a long ceremony, eternity is forever. We can certainly spend five hours basking in the glories of the Sacred Liturgy that are, after all, a foretaste of eternal glories, can we not? The rewards are truly Heavenly, rewards that we could not have unless the Co-Eternal and Co-Equal Son obeyed His Heavenly Father out of love for him and out of love for us so that we could have access to the treasures of His Most Sacred Heart here through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

A blessed Holy Saturday to you.

"O Death, Where Is Thy Sting?"--Father Francis Xavier Weninger on Good Friday

Although I did decide to republish my Good Friday reflection (scroll below) as this is the most solemn day of the year, I am also offering anyone who accesses this site today, Good Friday, April 10, 2020, a sermon given by Father Francis Xavier Weninger, S.J., nearly one hundred forty years ago. His is the superior reflection!

We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee, because by Thy Holy Cross Thou hast redeemed the world.

Hail, O Holy Cross, our own glorious and precious hope.

Our Lady, Queen of Martyrs and Mother of Sorrows, pray for us.

Saint John the Evangelist, pray for us.

Saint Mary Magdalene, pray for us.

The Most Solemn Day of the Year (2020)

This is the day that our sins transcended time and played their significant parts in putting God to death. The greatest crime in the history of the world was committed this day, Deicide, and we were among the guilty parties putting God on trial and then subjecting Him to horrible and painful humiliations and scourgings before we nailed Him to the wood of the Holy Cross, upon which He paid back to His Co-Equal and Co-Eternal Father the debt of our sins.

Yes, there is no greater crime than Deicide. There is also no greater act of love in all of human history as Love Incarnate took upon Himself the guilt of our sins though He was guilty of nothing. It was out of love for His Co-Equal and Co-Eternal Father's Holy Will and His matchless love for us that He, Who had instituted the Priesthood and the Eucharist last evening at the Last Supper, that He subjected Himself to the hands of us sinful men, even going so far as to make excuses for us, His executioners, as He hung on the gibbet of the Holy Cross.

This great act of sacrificial, redemptive love of the God-Man, Who had become Incarnate in His Most Blessed Mother's Virginal and Immaculate Womb by the power of God the Holy Ghost, is re-presented in an unbloody manner on altars of Sacrifice by true bishops and true priests every day of the year except for today, Good Friday. Our focus today is on mourning for our sins and expressing our gratitude that we have been redeemed by the shedding of every single drop of the Most Precious Blood of Our Divine Redeemer, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ as we ask Our Lady to help us to grow in a greater fervor for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as we grow more and more detached from even our Venial Sins and come to despise them as much as we despise any Mortal Sins that, God forbid, we may have committed.

This is a day of solemnity and sobriety, a day of total withdrawal from the world and its madness. We spend our time in church today as we keep Our Lord company at the Altar of Repose prior to noon and as we participate in the Mass of the Presanctified. Our sins put God to death. We helped to murder God in the very Flesh.

How does God repay us ungrateful and frequently lukewarm sinners? He gives us the true Church, born out of the Blood and Water that flowed forth from His wounded side when It was pierced by Saint Longinus's lance, making possible our regeneration in the Baptismal font and in the Sacred Tribunal of Penance, making it possible for us therefore to receive His very Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Most Blessed Sacrament in Holy Communion. And he give us His Blessed Mother, she who is our Co-Redemptrix, our Mediatrix and our Advocate, to be our Blessed Mother as He entrusts her to Saint John the Evangelist, whose fidelity to Our Lord on this day is meant to foreshadow our own fidelity by means of assisting at daily Mass frequently and of persevering until the point of our dying breaths in states of Sanctifying Grace by remaining a as close to Our Lady as he was.

Will we repay Our Divine Redeemer Who was nailed to the Cross this day with a true effort to amend our lives? Will we repay Our Divine Redeemer Who shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood this day with a greater effort to take seriously our consecration to His Most Sacred Heart through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary? Will we seek to live at all times in light of First and Last Things as we bear our own crosses with love and joy and gratitude?

Our Lady stands ready to help us to bring us to Calvary every day. Sure, we must make the same kind of effort as Saint Helena made to find the site of the True Cross in the Fourth Century as the Mass has indeed been taken away by spiritual robber barons. However, Our Lady does indeed stand ready to fortify us in our resolve never to return to the muck and the mire of a false church whose "pope" mocks the Holy Cross and makes of It an instrument of socialistic "justice" and Judeo-Masonic globalism.  

May we give thanks and praise to Our Lord through His Blessed Mother's Immaculate Heart this day for the wondrous mystery of His love that has made possible our eternal salvation.

Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.

A Maundy Thursday Sermon by Father Francis X. Weninger, S.J. (1805-1888)

Today is Maundy Thursday.

The Paschal Triduum of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ’s Passion, Death and Resurrection actually began with the Office of Tenebrae yesterday evening, and it will end on Easter Sunday.

These are the holiest days are the zenith of Holy Mother Church’s liturgical year. This is the day on which Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ instituted the Holy Priesthood and the Eucharist at the Last Supper for our sanctification and salvation. Although Our Lord would enter deep into His Passion immediately after the completion of the Last Supper as He suffered His Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane, He wonderfully gave us the Holy Priesthood of the New Dispensation as He instituted the New and Eternal Covenant that He would ratify by the shedding of every single drop of His Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross tomorrow, Good Friday. We must express our gratitude to Him at all times for giving us the Priesthood so that we can have access on a daily basis to His own Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in Holy Communion, made present for us on altars of Sacrifice by true bishops and true priests in this time of apostasy and betrayal.

This is a day to keep watch with Our Lord in His Real Presence at the Altar of Repose, remembering most importantly to beg Our Lady to make more and more voluntary sacrifices to make reparation to the Most Sacred Heart of her Divine Son through her own Immaculate Heart for our sins and those of the whole world.

Although I am not republishing the reflections that are contained in To Live in Light of Eternity, Volume 2, readers are still able to access them by clicking on the following links for Maundy Thursday:

Maundy Thursday: The Gifts of the Holy Eucharist and the Holy Priesthood are Given Unto Mere Men

As Our Divine Redeemer's Passion Begins

Additionally, though, I am providing those who access this site with a sermon written by Father Francis X. Weninger, S.J., who was an Austrian missionary to the United States of America in the Nineteenth Century after the revolutions that shook Central Europe in 1848.

Father Weninger was a fearless defender of the Holy Faith and a prolific writer. One of his most important books was Protestantism and Infidelity.

The Catholic Encyclopedia describes his work as follows:

Jesuit missionary and author, born at Wildhaus, Styria, Austria, 31 October, 1805; died at Cincinnati, Ohio, 29 June, 1888. When already a priest and doctor of theology, he joined the Society of Jesus in 1832 and in 1841 was sent to Innsbruck, where he taught theology, history, and Hebrew. As the Revolution of 1848 impeded his further usefulness at home, he left Europe and went to the United States. During his forty years he visited almost every state of the Union, preaching to vast multitudes in English, French, or German, as best suited the nationality of his hearers. In the year 1854 alone he delivered nearly a thousand sermons, and in 1864 he preached about forty-five missions. His zeal also prompted Father Weninger to win souls with the pen and he published forty works in German, Sixteen in English, eight in French, three in Latin. Among his principal works are: "Manual of the Catholic Religion" (Ratisbon, 1858); "Easter in Heaven" (Cincinnati, 1862); "Sermons" (Mainz, 1881-86). (Father Francis X. Weninger, S.J.)

Omitted from this list, however, is Father Weninger’s Protestantism and Infidelity, which is a superb critique of Protestantism’s complete infidelity to Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and His Sacred Deposit of Faith.

As Our time and our heart belong entire to Our Lord and His Paschal Triduum as we keep ever close to Our Lady, who was with Him every step of the way as he participated the Queen of Martyrs in His Redemptive Act on the wood of the Holy Cross on Good Friday, I will withhold the publication of another—and relatively brief!—commentary on the coronavirus scam that has caused Catholics across the vast expanse of the ecclesiastical divide at this time of apostasy and betrayal to be frightened by the high priests and priestesses of the “healthcare” and “scientific communities” until after noon on Holy Saturday.

A most blessed Paschal Triduum to you all. 

Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.

 

Saint Vincent Ferrer, O.P.: Zealous and Fearless Seeker of Lost Souls

This article, which was written in 2011 and revised over the years, contrasts the zeal of Saint Vincent Ferrer for the conversion of Jews and Mohammedans with his antitheses in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, who do not believe that they have a mission from God to seek with urgency the conversion of the souls of any non-Catholics, including adherents of the Talmud and the Koran.

Although I would not have thought it possible six years ago when this article was written originally, Jorge Mario Bergoglio is even more of antithesis of Saint Vincent Ferrer than was Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI before him, not that the German Modernist by the way of the “new theology” was any slouch in this regard. It’s just that the Argentine Apostate has exceeded everything that has gone before him in the past sixty-one years, and he’s still at his work of destruction with a vengeance that certainly plays a role in brining the current chastisement discussed at lenght in .

Work on an original article dealing with the contiuing follies of conciliarism and the "insights" of "Archbishop" Carlo Maria Vigano has started but will not be posted until Easter Monday unless I can finish in time for posting on Spy Wednesday, which I think is not possible.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

A Holy Week Reflection: From Eden to Palm Sunday

Today is Palm Sunday.

We have now entered into the most solemn week of the year as we withdraw more and more from the world and its false allurements to unite ourselves as never before with the events of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ’s Passion and Death prior to experiencing the glory of His Resurrection following the Mass on Holy Saturday, April 11, 202-, and on Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020, thus beginning a marvelous celebration of the Octave of Easter and the Easter season.

We need Our Lady’s help to keep and to intensify our Lenten penances this week. May our reliance upon the Most Sorrowful Mysteries of her Holy Rosary aid us in understanding what our sins did to her Divine Son and to her and how grateful we must be for being the unmerited beneficiaries of the Mercy won for us on the wood of the Holy Cross and for being given from that Cross so great and wonderful and perfect a mother as she, Our Blessed Mother, is to us by Our Divine Redeemer Himself.

"From Eden to Palm Sunday" is a substantial revision of a reflection that I wrote for the printed pages of Christ or Chaos in 1997. Given the vastness of the subject, this reflection is pitifully, woefully inadequate. The revised article is really a condensed version of what was gone into in greater detail in the Living in the Shadow of the Cross lecture program. About half of the lecture program dealt with material condensed in the current article. Obviously, Holy Week is not a time to watch this lecture program! However, it is there for those who are interested at some point during the months that follow.

To greet Christ the King this Palm Sunday and every day of our lives, we must not let anything get in the way of letting Him treat us according to the tender mercies of His Most Sacred Heart, remembering that nothing anyone does to us, says about us or causes us to suffer is the equal of what one of our least Venial Sins caused Him to suffer in His Sacred Humanity during His fearful Passion and Death on the wood of the Holy Cross and that caused those Swords of Sorrow to be pierced through and through the Immaculate Heart of His Most Blessed Mother.

Our fervor during this week of weeks must be genuine, and we must beg Our Lady, especially by meditating upon the Sorrowful Mysteries of her Most Holy Rosary, to help us persist in this fervor moment by moment, day by day, week in and week out, month after month, year after year until the time when we meet Christ the King, Our Crucified and Risen Saviour, at the moment of our Particular Judgment.

Remember, , was published four days ago.

A blessed Palm Sunday to you all.

Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.

Saint Vincent Ferrer, O.P. (whose feast is suppressed this year) pray for us.
