Always Consigned to Arguing About the Inarguable, part two

[Specific page citations have been inserted into indented texts that quoted from the Catholic grade school reader entitled With Courage and Faith that was published in 1941. The appendix includes a poem, "Washington's Birthday," which was included in the De La Salle Fith Reader (published in 1922), that was written by a a Calvinist of the "Dutch Reformed" sect by the name of Margaret Sangster. False ecumenism and nationalism were being spoonfed to young American Catholics, making it little wonder that there was a ready reception of the "Second" Vatican Council and the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service. Our Lady, Help of Christians, pray for us!]

This is a follow-up, replete with an appendix filled with examples of Americanism as taught to Catholic school children nearly eighty years ago, to the commentary published on the Fourth Sunday after Easter and the Commemoration of Pope Saint Peter Celestine, which begins by discussing President Donald John Trump’s objections to the State of Alabama’s almost-total ban on surgical baby-killing and for long prison sentences against baby-killers.

Much of the commentary, however, is devoted to a discussion of the conciliar “bishops’” long-held support for “exceptions” as a matter of “strategic” expediency without ever having one proposed, no less lobbied for, completely no-exceptions legislation when it might have been possible for such a total ban to have passed muster in Congress in the immediate aftermath of the decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States of America in the cases of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, January 22, 1973. Obviously, men who can offend God by breaking the First and Second Commandments by engaging in false ecumenism and praising false religions can find it pretty acceptable to refuse to stand up to the butchers of Modernity and their political enablers.

The concluding part of the commentary examines the precepts of Americanism that have been reviewed many times on this site. I do so again for the sake of those who are new to this website and with a bit of a new twist by, as noted just above, commenting upon pure Americanist propaganda that made its way to books used in Catholic elementary schools in the 1940s and 1950s.

Always Consigned to Arguing About the Inarguable, part one

My brother once said in the 1960s that our father’s attorney was deserving of what he called “the Bronze Turtle Award” for the slow pace at which he handled legal cases.

Well, I suppose that I am worthy of the “Bronze Turtle Award” for being so slow to get new commentaries posted. However, I am doing the best that I can given the book projects that are underway.

This commentary focuses on the almost-total ban on surgical baby-killing in the State of Alabama and some of the reaction to it, most notably that of one of the supporter of Red China’s one-child per family program (which has become a “two-child per family program in recent year), namely, Marion Gordon “Pat” Robertson, whose net worth is estimated to range from $200 million to $1 billion dollars. Heresy and error pay in this life, not in eternity.

Part two, which will focus on the conciliar “bishops” and Americanism, will be published in a few days.

Refusing to See the Divine Impress In All Others, part two: Candidates for Execution at the Whims of Utilitarian “Professionals”

[Friday, May 17, 2019 Update: Work proceeds on book projects. However, today will be spent writing a commentary on the well-intentioned but morally flawed bill that was passed by the Alabama State Legislature and signed into law yesteday by Governor Kay Ivey. The is morally flawed as it contains the needless "life of the mother" "exception" that permits any baby assassin to certify that a mother has such an "exception." However, there are no "exceptions" to the Fifth Commandment's prohibition against willful murder.

[Nonetheless, however, the new Alabama law is meant to test the legal waters in an attempt to reverse the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States of America in the cases of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, January 22, 1973. My commentary will explain why it is likely that the new law will be declared unconstitutional by the nation's high court with the Chief Justice John Glover Roberts coming through for the forces of darkness yet again. I hope to have the commntary published by late Saturday or on Sunday. There is a substantial amount of additional transcription to do. Thank you for your patience.]

With apologies for the delay, I hereby present the second and final part of the current series. This part focuses once again on the dangerous traps for patients everywhere in the healthcare industry that are set to ensnare the unsuspecting the moment they walk into most physicians’ offices for the first time to determine what kind of “quality of life” patients enjoy. Patients who are adjudged to have a “poor” “quality of life” are thus put on a “merciful,” “compassionate” path to death after they are convinced (coerced, manipulated, pressured) into agreeing upon a “care plan” that makes them and/or their relatives materially complicit in their executions.

My focus for most of the rest of this month is on putting out at least two books of anthologies. I will write new articles occasionally, although I may simply write short notes on the home page instead of the longer articles while linking to older articles that have dealt with a particular situation or development.

Thank you.

On the [Commemorated] Feast of Saint Michael the Archangel

[Late night update on May 9, 2019: The next article is progressing. Indeed, it was progressing nicely yestersday until I had to place what was a fourth, time-consumig phone call to our former satellite internet provider after having had an unexpected and substantial charge (at least for me) for not returning an obsolete radio transmitter that no less than three agents had told me that I had did not have to return.

[Much of this evening was spent dealing with the problem, in a phone conversation with a corporate employee at a Filipino call center (outsourcing, of course). The employee told me that the three other representatives with whom I spoke before I returned the company's mode two months ago were incorrect, that, yes, I had to return the radio transmitter. That's right, three representatives got it wrong. Nonetheless, though, I was told that I would get a refund based on what the first representative had told me but that the refund would not show up again until June 6, 2019! Penance is better than ever in 2019, and my sins, which are so many, deserve as much penance as God in His great mercy chooses to send me. We are gratetful to a friend who has assisted us at this time given the unexpected shortfall. 

[Thus, patient readers, I should have the next article completed for posting by late Satuday or on Sunday. One or two books will follow in a few weeks thereafter. Thank you.]

Today, May 8, 2019, is the [commemorated] Feast of the Dedication of the Church of Saint Michael the Archangel in these traditional venues that adhere to the General Roman Calendar of 1954 but is a double major feast otherwise. It is worthwhile to note that this feast was abolished altogether by Antipope John XXIII in 1960. Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria/Paul VI abolished the Prayers after Low Mass, including the Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel, that had been made optional by Roncalli in 1960. Interesting, no?

We need Saint Michael's intercession more now than ever before. We need his help in our own daily battles with the forces of the world, the flesh, and the devil. And, of course, we need his help with to remain faithful to the true Faith without making any concessions at all to conciliarism or its false officials who blaspheme God so regularly, so boldly, so repeatedly and with a chorus of bobble heads making excuses for them in their sins against the First and Second Commandments, which are just as important as the Sixth and Ninth Commandments. 

Our Lady, Queen of the Angels, pray for us.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us and keep us!

On the Solemnity of Saint Joseph (2019)

Today is the Solemnity of Saint Joseph in Paschaltide, a feast that originated under the title of “The Patronage of Saint Joseph” in 1847 by Pope Pius IX before being given its current name in 1911 and then repositioned two years later on the Wednesday following the Second Sunday after Easter by Pope Saint Pius X. This reflection is by way of an annual reminder, slightly revised, to trust in Saint Joseph, the Patron of the Universal Church and the Protector of the Faithful, in these times of persecution by the forces of Antichrist in the world and in the counterfeit church of conciliarism. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Refusing to See the Divine Impress In All Others, part one: Memorandum to Mister Rogers

A very late/early hour.

This commentary focuses on the idiocy of Alabama State Representative John Rogers, and it could easily have been entitled "Memorandum to Mister Rogers." As this is part one of two parts, I have chosen the current title as part two will deal with efforts on the part of deathcare industry to kill off anyone whose "quality of life" they deemed to be not worth the time, effort and cost to keep in good health, no less to keep alive.

Finally, will someone tell Bonehead Biden that Margaret Thatcher is dead. He couldn't possibly have spoken with him recently unless he is sitting in on one of Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton's seances with Eleanor Roosevelt Roosevelt.

Pope Saint Pius V: A Rigid Foe of Heresy and All False Religions

This is a slightly revised version of a reflection on the saintly life and work of  the great Dominican, Pope Saint Pius X, who is indeed quite a contrast to the life and the work of the conciliar revolutionaries. 

Work continues on several articles after an interruption of several days this week necessitated by duties in support of my family and other matters that arose unexpectedly. An original article should appear tomorow. I am sorry for the absence of articles. However, I am also spending time putting together anthologies of my articles. There are not enough hours in the day, but I do what I can as I am able according to the graces sent to me by Our Lady.

Saint Catherine of Siena, T.O.P.: Chosen by Our Lord to Suffer for Him and His Holy Church

Today’s article is a slight revision and republication of a very brief and wholly inadequate reflection on the life of the great mystic, stigmatist and spiritual directress of souls, Saint Catherine of Siena, T.O.P., whose feast day is the day after that of the Protomartyr of the Order of Preachers, Saint Peter of Verona (Saint Peter Martyr).

Saint Catherine was calumniated during her life, and she was blamed for having precipitated the Great Western Schism by convincing Pope Gregory XI to return to return to Rome in 1378. She suffered all such calumny with joy.

What’s our excuse for grumbling and/or murmuring about our crosses and the state of chaos in which we live in this time of apostasy and betrayal?

Remember, everything thing that happens to us has been ordained by the hand of God Himself with exquisite perfection. Saint Catherine of Siena never lost an opportunity to suffer well. Indeed, she begged to suffer more and more for love of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. So should we.

Finally, although I am unsure whether this link will work, I am attempting to post a two minute video featuring the late Father Joseph Collins singing a parody about Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II set to the tune of Petula Clark's "Downtown" recording: Father Collins Sings Parody about John Paul II.

The Conciliar Revolutionaries Enable All Enemies of the Catholic Faith

Herewith being published, albeit after a long delay caused by many unforeseen factors, including the recent aggravation of my existing spinal problems by an attempt to steady myself as I nearly fell on the surface of a flooded store at a supermarket that shall remain nameless (the ceiling was leaking during a storm and there were no warnings of a wet floor since no one knew about the problem until I reported it) and paternal duties to a champion goat-breeder and exhibitor, is my commentary on the Sri Lanka massacres, which also touches upon the fire at the Cathedral de Notre Dame de Paris peripherally.

As work is proceeding on several book projects, the next original article on this site will follow in a few days.

Thank you.

Opposing False Ecumenism With His Very Life

[Low Sunday Update: My commentary on the Sri Lanka massacres of a week ago is almost finished. Its completion has been delayed because of a serious aggrevation of my existing lower spinal problems after slipping backward at a store on Easter Wednesday evening when I encountered an unexpected puddle of water from a ceiling leak that no one in the store knew was there until I was hurt. Penance is in season no matter that it is Paschaltide. It has, though, been difficult to work in the interim.

[The principal purpose of this update is to inform the readers of this site of the death of a very zealous, holy and exemplary priest, Father Joseph Collins, who died at 11:54 a.m., Eastern Daylight Saving Time in the rectory of Saint Michael Church in Glenmont, New York. He has received the benefit of the Sacrament of Extreme Unction at the time his pancratic cancer had been diagnosed and had received Holy Viaticum every day from that time to Easter Saturday morning. 

[As I noted a few weeks ago when news of Father Collins's illness reached me, Father Joseph Francis Collins was a prayerful priest who spent much time alone before the Most Sacrament in prayer. He was zealous for souls, and his superb memory permitted him to pick up conversations with people he had not seen in decades, something that a reader of this site from Richmond, Virginia, told me happened to him when Father Collins, who had not see the gentleman for over twenty-five years, recognized him after Mass, greeted him and then asked him about his family members. Father Collins truly cared about the sheep entrusted to his care. Apart his brilliant intellect, this good priest was also a gifted singer and had a delighful sense of humor. Although he will be missed here in this passing, mortal vale of tears, he is already at work answering the prayers of those who have prayed to him afer his death.

[Mindful that we presume the state of no soul after death until and unless Holy Mother Church declares him to be a saint, it is thus our duty to pray for the repose of the soul of Father Joseph Francis Collins. I prayed for him from the time we met him in 2003 until the day he died, and I will pray for his soul every day of my life until I die. Our Lady will direct the fruit of our prayers to some other worthy soul if Father Collins has no need of them. No prayer is ever wasted. None. 

[Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.]

No, I have not yet completed my commentary on the Sri Lanka terrorist attacks, which were committed by beliving Mohammedans who adhere to the blasphemous Koran with unwavering fealty. Easter Wednesday will be spent completing that particular commentary.

In the meantime, I am offering a republished reflection on the life and martyrdom of Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen, O.F.M., Cap.,whose feast is commemorated today, Easter Wednesday, April 24, 2019.

Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen, O.F.M., Cap. opposed false ecumenism with his very life. Unlike the conciliar "popes" and their "episcopal" henchmen, Saint Fidelis came to "extirpate heresy, not to embrace it."

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen, pray for us.
