Saint Thomas Aquinas:Angelic Pillar and Champion of the Catholic Faith

This is a wholly inadequate reflection on the life and the work of Saint Thomas Aquinas, which has been revised slightly this morning after my connection to the internet was restored (it was in a "degraded" condition for several days).

This refection contains the late Father Peter Gallwey's description of selective Scripture citation and individual interpretation that applies perfectly to the conciliar revolutionaries, including Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

As I remain under the proverbial weather because of what has turned out to be a rather extended illness these past few days, work on the next article has been slowed (and it was not helped by the internet outage either). I hope to have it posted by late this evening. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Jorge Reaffirms Those Living Lives of Moral Dissolution

Yes, another overnight posting.

This commentary concerns Jorge Mario Bergolio’s recent deconstruction of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ’s plain words concerning the indissolubility of the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony. Commentary is also provided about the false “pontiff’s” efforts to “quietly” show “mercy” to clerical abusers whose guilt has been established beyond any question. The Argentine Apostate has no horror of personal sin, which is why is hellbent on reaffirming those who persist in their sins unrepentantly.

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

As the hour is late and I am fighting a serious flu-like illness for the second time in three weeks, all I have the strength to do now is to ask readers who are able to make a non-tax-deductible financial gift to do so. Unexpected expenses, including the trip to the chiropractor four days ago, have eaten up what little funds we had left after paying bills, some of which were paid only because of the regular help provided by six or seven readers, including one just yesterday.

The statistics on You Tube show that over there have been over 250 views of part one of “No Catholicism, No Social Order.” Although I realize that some of those views might be the result of one or more people accessing them more than once, it certainly would be quite nice if even half of those who have viewed the videos would donate between five and ten dollars at this time. (Yes, I continue to search for employment.)

Thank you for considering this rather urgent request.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

 

Memento Homo, Quia Pulvis Es, Et In Pulverem Reverteris!

[Although I meant to write "pulvis" in the title and the text of this reflection, I wrote "pulveris," only noticing the error when resuming work on my next commentary a short while ago this evening, Ash Wednesday. I looked at that title and said to myself, "I couldn't have done this." To quote the late Richard "Red" Skelton, "I dooed it." Mea culpa!]

Our annual Lenten journey into the desert has commenced anew. Deo gratias!

This is the time of penance. This is the time to withdraw from the world. This is the time to be earnest about relying upon the ineffable graces that were won for us by the shedding of every single drop of the Most Precious Blood of Our Divine Redeemer, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, during His Passion and Death and that flow into our sous through the loving hands of His Most Blessed Mother, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces.

This period of six weeks, four days until Easter Sunday (six weeks, three and one-half days until the Easter Vigil) is nearly one-ninth of an entire calendar year. May we beg Our Lady to help us make the best Lent of our lives as we do not know if it will be our last. Indeed, we do not know whether we will live to see Easter Sunday in this life on Sunday, April 16, 2017.

Although the next commentary for this site is still being written, we had to go for chiropractic treatments on Monday, something that ate up almost all of the daylight hours and the little bit that remained of our financial means for the coming. As I was in a particularly bad way with arthritic lower disc disease, the trip for the treatments was a necessity as writing for long stretches has been very difficult lately. This is, of course, a great penance, and I accept it as such.

Additionally, this site was down last night. I did not know it at the time, but the hosting company was doing an update. This prevented me from doing necessary work to save a formatted copy of the next commentary, which deals with some of Jorge Mario Bergoglio's recent words and deeds. Only some, mind you. Only some, but even that requires a lot of work.

 

Thank you for your patience. The work continues, and I am also working on four different book projects while I continue the work for this site.

Our Lady of Dolors, pray for us.

Disruption Is Of The Very Essence of Modernism

This commentary on "Bishop" Robert McElroy's address a week ago today to the assembled throng of Alinskyites, many of whose organizations are directly or indirectly tied to the nefarious George Soros, urged his listeners to serve as agents of "disruption" during the presidency of Donald John Trump. In this, however, Robert McElroy is simply making the kind of "mess" that the man who appointed him as the conciliar "bishop" of San Diego, People's Republic of California, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, urge young people to make after their left "World Youth Day" in Rio di Janiero in late-July of 2013.

Disruption is of the devil. So is Modernism. Hence, you see, so is conciliarism.

I am sorry that this article took so long to complete, Indeed, I had hoped that it would not be necessary to make another overnight posting. Then again, penance is better than ever in 2017! All to thee, Blessed Mother. All to thy Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you. Save souls!

A short reflection discussing the role of Saint Philomena in the progress that Miss Teresa Johnston is making from the injuries she sustained when a tree fell on her eigiht days ago now will be posted by late this afternoon. Suffice it to say for the moment that Miss Johnston's brain swelling has decreased, and Saint Philomena had a role in this as I will explain later today.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Jorge Plays Tag Team With George Soros and Comrades

[Update on Tuesday evening, February 21, 2017: Urgent prayers continue to be needed for Miss Teresa Johnston of Irvine, California. A large pine tree fell on the upper part of her body The during violent storms in southern California on Friday, Feburary 17, 2017, causing multiple fractures. She is currently undergoing emergency surgery to relieve pressure on her brain. Surgeons removed part of her skull yesterday, Monday, February 20, 2017, to decrase the swellen in her brain. The swelling, however, is increasing, not decreasing. Please pray for the Johnston family.

[Although we have been praying for Teresa since we received a request to do so on Saturday, February 18, 2017, we did not know until yesterday, Monday, February 20, 2017, that Teresa is the daughter of Shron's longtime chiropractor when she lived in southern California, Dr. Roch Johnston. I discovered this by clicking on the following link: Local Teen in Critical Condition After Tree Falls On Her During Storm

[Please pray for Teresa Johnston, Dr. and Mrs. Roch Johnston, and her silbings at this time. Thank you.

[Also, please pray for Mr. John Vennari, the editor of Catholic Family News, who appears to be approaching death. A friend e-mailed to explain that a priest of the Society of Saint Pius X was en route to give administer the Sacrament of Extreme Unction. Please pray for Mr. Vennari and his wife, Susan, and their children, Elizabeth, Philomena and Benedict at this time of great need. Saint Joseph, Partron of the Dying, pray for Mr. John Vennari

[Finally the next article for this site is being written. There are just a few things to say about "Bishop" Robert McElroy and his boss, Jorge Mario Bergoglio. The importance of this commentary has pushed another one to the "on deck" circle, if you will. Thanks for your patience.]

The.Argentine Apostate delivered a video message on Friday, February 17, 2017, to members of "popular movements (viz. Alinksyites) funded mostly by Goerge Soros and comrades meeting in Stockton, People's Republic of California. This is a little response to what Senor Jorge had to say. Thanks for your patience. 

The hour is late. I must bid you a farewell for now.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

New Videos Uploaded

[Late-night update on Saturday, February 18, 2017: Work on what had been intended as the next original article on this site was suspended late tonight because I made the mistake of checking the Vatican website. This usually means an interruption of existing work and/or sleep, which is much needed now. Here an excerpt of what I found from Senor Jorge's Friday, February 17, 2017, video address to representatives of "popular movements" (viz. Marxist-Leninist movements) in Modesto, People's Republic of California:

The other is a reflection that I shared at our most recent World Meeting of Popular Movements, and I feel is important to say it again: no people is criminal and no religion is terrorist. Christian terrorism does not exist, Jewish terrorism does not exist, and Muslim terrorism does not exist. They do not exist. No people is criminal or drug-trafficking or violent. “The poor and the poorer peoples are accused of violence yet, without equal opportunities, the different forms of aggression and conflict will find a fertile terrain for growth and will eventually explode.”[7] There are fundamentalist and violent individuals in all peoples and religions—and with intolerant generalizations they become stronger because they feed on hate and xenophobia. By confronting terror with love, we work for peace.  (Jorge Says That Mohmmedan Terrorism Does Not Exist.)

[An appropriate comimentary will be posted by this time tomorrow evening, Sexagesima Sunday. For the moment, though, suffice it to say that Bergoglio lives in such a world defined by ideological predilections that have nothing to do with reality. To assert that all violence is caused by "unequal opportunities" is to recycle Karl Marx's contention that "class warfare" is the foundation of all injustice and violenc in the world. 

[Second, the Argentine Apostate's belief that "Muslim terrorism does not exist" is to stand truth on its head. See, for example, . There will be more on this wicked man's false beliefs, which he has stated on so many other occasions by this tim tomorrow evening.]

Although there is much going on in the world now as the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic forces of naturalism engage in a remarkable display of ostensible fratricide that is designed by the adversary to further prepare the way for the coming of Antichrist, I am reserving written commentary on this madness for a few m days as I attend to other projects. Suffice it to say that I will have a new commentary soon. However, I am simply taking more toreime to compete articles.

In the meantime, however, I have finally uploaded videos that were recorded last week to take the place of an eighty-two minute video that was, quite unbenkonwst to me, recorded without sound. Penance is better than ever in 2017.

Here are the links to the videos:

No Catholicism, No Social Order, part one

No Catholicism, No Social Order, part two

No Catholicism, No Social Order, part three

No Catholicism, No Social Order, part four

The new videos contain little that is new to the readers of this site. Indeed, this is really little new to say as we must always view the events of the world exclusively through the eyes of the true Faith.

The only thing that I would add to the concluding part of the newly uploaded videos (and the process of uploading required several steps, including making use of wireless systems available in public places, something that I realize carries with a risk of computer infection, was long and cumbersome given the fact that we have so few available gigabytes allotted to us on a monthly basis) is the following passage from Pope Pius XI's Mit Brennender Sorge, March 17, 1937, that is as applicable to our sitaution at this time as it was to Nazi Germany eighty years ago:

e can command: it is not enough to be a member of the Church of Christ, one needs to be a living member, in spirit and in truth, i.e., living in the state of grace and in the presence of God, either in innocence or in sincere repentance. If the Apostle of the nations, the vase of election, chastised his body and brought it into subjection: lest perhaps, when he had preached to others, he himself should become a castaway (1 Cor. ix. 27), could anybody responsible for the extension of the Kingdom of God claim any other method but personal sanctification? Only thus can we show to the present generation, and to the critics of the Church that "the salt of the earth," the leaven of Christianity has not decayed, but is ready to give the men of today -- prisoners of doubt and error, victims of indifference, tired of their Faith and straying from God -- the spiritual renewal they so much need. A Christianity which keeps a grip on itself, refuses every compromise with the world, takes the commands of God and the Church seriously, preserves its love of God and of men in all its freshness, such a Christianity can be, and will be, a model and a guide to a world which is sick to death and clamors for directions, unless it be condemned to a catastrophe that would baffle the imagination.

20. Every true and lasting reform has ultimately sprung from the sanctity of men who were driven by the love of God and of men. Generous, ready to stand to attention to any call from God, yet confident in themselves because confident in their vocation, they grew to the size of beacons and reformers. On the other hand, any reformatory zeal, which instead of springing from personal purity, flashes out of passion, has produced unrest instead of light, destruction instead of construction, and more than once set up evils worse than those it was out to remedy. No doubt "the Spirit breatheth where he will" (John iii. 8): "of stones He is able to raise men to prepare the way to his designs" (Matt. iii. 9). He chooses the instruments of His will according to His own plans, not those of men. But the Founder of the Church, who breathed her into existence at Pentecost, cannot disown the foundations as He laid them. Whoever is moved by the spirit of God, spontaneously adopts both outwardly and inwardly, the true attitude toward the Church, this sacred fruit from the tree of the cross, this gift from the Spirit of God, bestowed on Pentecost day to an erratic world.  (Pope Pius XI, Mit Brennender Sorge, March 17, 1937.)

No compromises. None. Ever. 

No compromises witht the spirit of the world, the flesh and the devil.

Viva Cristo Rey!Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon!

Jorge Spits on the Blood of the English and Irish Martyrs

Although the event has yet to be confirmed by conciliar officials, representatives of the heretical and schismatic Anglican sect will be permited to stage what is an Anglican "vespers service" in the Basilica of Saint Peter four weeks from today, Monday, March 13, 2017, the fourth anniversary of the pestilential apostate from Argentina's emerging on the Balconiy of the Basilica of Saint Peter to begin his work in the conciliar seat of apostasy.

This is a brief bit of commentary on the matter.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

 

Septuagesima Sunday: Preparing for Lenten Penances Once Again

Today is Septuagesima Sunday and the Commemoration of the Founders of the Seven Holy Founders of the Order of Servites.

Lent begins in but seventeen days.

Easter is exactly nine weeks way.

It is time to start our preparations for Lent, time to start thinking about the penances we are going to undertake starting on Ash Wednesday in order to make reparation for our sins and those of the whole world as we prepare to enter deep into the mysteries of the Paschal Triduum of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's Passion, Death, and Resurrection on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday. The purple vestments representing a penitential season of Holy Mother Church make their reappearance today to remind us that we must be deadly serious about the business of making the best Lent of our lives as we do not know whether this Lent will be our last one on the face of this earth--or whether we will even live to see the end of this particular Lent! Let us use this time well as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, praying as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit. Work continues on this site's next original article, which should appear by late this evening.

Our Lady of Dolors, pray for us.

The Seven Holy Founders of the Order of Servites, pray for us.

Revised and Our Lady of Lourdes: "Penance! Penance! Penance! Pray to God for Sinners"

Today is the one hundred fifty-ninth anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady to Saint Bernadette Soubirous in the Grotto of Massabielle near Lourdes, France. Our Lady explained to the fourteen year-old Bernadette that we must do penance for our sins and for those of others.

Can we do any less in our day?

Indeed, the state of the Church Militant on earth and of the world-at-large has worsened as the sins of men have grown more numerous and more daring and as most baptized Catholics have been deprived of access to Sanctifying Grace by virtue of the invalid sacraments offered in the counterfeit church of conciliarism. God is not going to permit any country that kills the innocent preborn with legal impunity and kills souls in the name of the falsehoods of "freedom of speech" and "freedom of the press" and "freedom of religion" and a general sense of legal and cultural licentiousness to know long term material prosperity. Then again, these merchants of death have been enabled by the conciliar revolutionaries, who believe that signs of "outward penance belong to a different era in the history of the Church." We must indeed take Our Lady's injunction, "Penance! Penance! Penance! Pray to God for sinners," most seriously as we pray as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permits. 

The next article for this site is nearing completion, and it is my hope video lectures I recorded on my cellular telephone on Thursday, February 9, 2017, the Feast of Saint Cyril of Alexandria and the Commemoration of Saint Apolonnia, later today.

Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.

Saint Bernardette Soubiros, pray for us.

A False Religious Sect That Mocks Its Own "Infallible" Statements

Well, it is another very later hour. This introduction must be brief.

One of Jorge Mario Bergoglo's fellow lay Jesuit revolutionaries, "Father" Giancarlo Pani, S.J., has published an article in La Civilta Cattolica that argues in favor of overlooking Karol Josef Wojtyla/"Saint John Paul's" supposedly "infallible" teaching forbidding the "ordination" of women to the conciliar presbyterate. For Modernists, however, there is nothing that is "stable" or "secure," no, not even when it comes to the "teaching" of their own supposed "popes." 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Cyril of Jerusalem, pray for us.

Saint Apollonia, pray for us.
