Read Pope Saint Pius X on Pope Saint Gregory the Great

This is a republished reflection on Pope Saint Gregory the Great, whose feast is celebrated today, Tuesday, March 12, 2024, that draws principally upon Pope Saint Pius X's Iucunda Sane, March 12, 1904.

The newest article to appear on this site was published yesterday (see The Prophet Osee Reminds Us: "For there is no truth, and there is no mercy, and there is no knowledge of God in the land" (Osee 4:1).)

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

The Prophet Osee Reminds Us: "For there is no truth, and there is no mercy, and there is no knowledge of God in the land" (Osee 4:1)

After unexpected interruptions throughout the past week and computer glitches that almost erased the entirety of this commentary's text an hour ago, here is a commentary about how the world has fallen into the abyss because, to quote the Prophet Osee: "For there is no truth, and there is no mercy, and there is no knowledge of God in the land.

This is not a commentary about the presidential election as such, but it does touch upon how world leaders, including those in the United States of America, are committed to the promotion of evil under the cover of the civil law to a greater or lesser extent.

Thank you for your patience.

Reflections on the Via Dolorosa, the Via Crucis (2024)

This contains a few reflections for your consideration on the Way of the Cross that might be useful for the last three weeks of Lent. These reflections were written many a moon ago and have been revised slightly over the past three decades. 

The next original commentary is crawling along. However, it should be completed today, Laetare Sunday, barring any of the unexpected interruptions that were experienced each day last week. It is Lent, after all, and penance is quite indeed better than ever in 2024!

A blessed Laetare Sunday to you all.

Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.

Brother Zero: Saint John of God, Who was Understood by God Alone

This article in honor of Saint John of God, whose feast is celebrated today, was written seventeen years ago now. A lot of hard work went into its completion. I believe it to be one a piece that will give great consolation to those who have not as of yet read it.

Saint John of God was little understood during his life. It was the case that even his longtime spiritual director, Saint John of Avila, who knew him fairly well, did not understand his decisions. Saint John of God suffered from all manner of slanders and even beatings in his life. He suffered slanders even up to the point of his own death. It was enough for him to be understood by God. It should be enough for us as well, especially during this time of apostasy and betrayal when so many of us are misunderstood and castigated by relatives and friends and acquaintances as being "outside of the Church" for our refusal to make any concessions to conciliarism or its false shepherds. We should be grateful that we are as misunderstood and hated and calumniated as was Saint John of God!

A new commentary was being written about eight hours ago when I simply konked out in my chair before awakening four hours later. It will get completed later today.  

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

On the Feast of the Angelic Doctor, Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P. (2024)

This is a revised and expanded, although still entirely inadequate, commentary on the Feast of Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Thursday, March 7, 2024.

The next original article should be published within twenty-four hours as it was delayed yesterday by entirely unforeseen circumstances.

"Demos II" Tries to Save Conciliarism From Its Logical Consequence: Jorge Mario Bergoglio

A short essay written under by a conciliar "cardinal" under pseudonym of "Demos II" has prompted what turned out to be a rather lengthy exposition of his errors, the foremost of which is his obvious belief that the "Second" Vatican Council and the teachings of Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II and Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI should guide the selection of the next universal face of apostasy to succeed Jorge Mario Bergoglio. 

By the way, I totally forgot to note that February 20, 2004, was the twentieth anniversary of this website going "live" online. Thus, the work of Christ or Chaos, which began as a printed publication in September of 1996, is its twenty-eighth year. Although I can no longer write as much as I did in the past, I do what I can as my time permits. Thank you for reading this site, and I thank all our benefactors, past and present, for making this work possible, noting that it would really terrific if a few more montly benfactors were to come along within the Providence of God.

The next original article on this will not take as long to appear as this current one. (Once again, I am not offering any further comments about the lawfare being used against former President Donald John Trump or the presidential election untl after Easter. While individual issues, such as illegal immigration, will be discussed as events warrant, I am avoiding all dog and pony shows, includuing whatever decision Judge Scott McAfee renders in the case of Fani Willis and Nathan Wade, until after Easter. Our focus must be on prepariing for a good Passiontide, not on the distractions posed by the world,

The Only Anomalies That Must Concern Us Are Our Sins

[Update on Saturday, March 2, 2024: I am working on a commentary about an essay published under the pseudonym of "Demos II," who is a conciliar "cardinal," outlining expectations for the next head of what he thinks is the Catholic Church while making his criticism of "Pope Francis" very clear. As I want to be concise and precise in my commentary on the essay, I need to take a bit of time to choose only a few examples of how the "cardinal's" belief that the "Second" Vatican Council and the magisterium of the conciliar "popes" prior to Jorge Mario Bergoglio had been faithful representations of the Catholic Faith.

[The "cardinal" also wants to see a return to the "hermeneutic of continuity," which is, even though he may not understand or accept it, is nothing other than repackaged dogmatic evolutionism. One cannot use an entity's false principles as a means to combat those principles' logical conclusion, and Jorge Mario Bergoglio is nothing if not their very expression. It is my hope to have the commentary published on the Third Sunday of Lent. Thank you.]

This is a follow-up of sorts to the commentary posted four days ago.

Your "Pro-Life" President is At It Again

The secular "pope," Donald John Trump, has pontificated on the matter of in vitro fertilization, and as is the case with all other false pontiffs, his pronouncement is erroneous. Error can never be the foundation of anything good. Yet it is that people keep closing their eyes while the difference, if there ever has been any, between the supposed "lesser evil" and the "greater evil" becomes indistinguishable.

Sober up.

Stop believing in the political equivalent of the tooth fairy.

Reflections on the Second Sunday of Lent written by Dom Prosper Gueranger and Father Francis X. Weninger are included near the end of this commentary.

Timothy Michael Dolan: Still Trying to Make Everyone Happy Except God

[Update on Ember Saturday and the Commemoration of the Vigil of Saint Matthias: Although I was working on a commentary about the "unofficial" meeting between the corrupt Francesco Coccopalmiero, and three other conciliar emissaries (Mario Delpini, Zbigniew Suchecki, and Antonio Stagliano) with high mucky-mucks representing Italian Freemasonry to find "compatibility" between Catholicism and the occult lodges, a news item caught my attention that requires me to postpone the article I had been working on in favor of a thorough reponse to former President Donald John Trump's defense of the immoral practice of in vitro fertilization. I simply cannot stay up for several hours to work on this commentary as it is already past Midnight. 

Before I take my leave, though, I reiterate the need for non-tax-deductible financial gifts as I have some pressing bills, one due tomorrow, that must be paid promptly. I am trying to raise $600 at this time. Thank you.]

What started out as a putative "Mass" upon the death of an infamous man who was disturbed enough to undergo the chemical and surgical mutilation of his body turned into a "funeral service" wherein the presiding presbyter, Edward Dougherty, said that the atheistic mutant was on the way to Heaven. Yet it is that Timothy Michael Dolan praised Dougherty as a "hero," proving once again that the slimmed down version of the man who wore a cheesehead mitre upon his installation as the conciliar "arcbhishop" of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, twenty-two years ago, is still trying to make everyone happy except the true God of Divine Revelation, the Most Holy Trinity.

This commentary could have been entitled "From Whom Am I to Judge? to Amoris Laetitia to Fiducia Supplicans to the Cathedral of Saint Patrick."

Goodnight. Good morning. I am going to sleep. 

Another new commentary will follow in a day or so.

Corrupt in Faith, Worship, Morals, and Pastoral Practice

There was a travesty that took place at the Cathedral of Saint Patrick, Borough of Manhattan, City of New York, New York, on Thursday, Februay 15, 2024, the Thursday after Ash Wednesday and the Commemoration of Saints Faustinus and Jovita, that made the secular news because its organized designed the travety to be celebration of evil. To this date, although a terse statement was issued by the cathedral's rector to apologize for the event, I am not aware that Timothy Michael Dolan has said one word about this publicly. Jorge is watching, and the false "pontiff," who is ever-ready to comment on world events, has said nothing. Dolan is following his lead.

Well, the hour is late. I will have another original commentary in a day or two.

Non-tax-deductible financial gifts are always needed. Thank you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
