From the Beginning: A Mission to Convert All Nations

Today is Pentecost Sunday, the birthday of Holy Mother Church, the upon which the first pope, Saint Peter, who was vivified as the Vivifier Himself, God the Holy Ghost, descended upon him and Our Lady and the other Apostles (and the rest of the disciples) gathered in the Upper Room in Jerusalem as they completed their Novena to God the Holy Ghost ten days after Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's glorious Ascension to His Father's right hand on Ascension Thursday.

Saint Peter wasted no time in doing something that is forbidden, at least in a de facto sense (see Wonder No More, which was revised in various parts yesterday afternoon), in the counterfeit church of conciliarism: he preached to the Jews about the necessity of their converting to the true Faith.

The missionary work of the Church to seek with urgency the unconditional conversion of all men and all nations to the her maternal bosom, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there is no true social order, brought us glorious missionaries who were willing to embrace many sacrifices, including martyrdom itself, to spread the Faith of the Divine Redeemer, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, so that men and all nations would be able to order themselves rightly according to the Deposit of Faith that He has entrusted exclusively to Holy Mother Church for Its eternal safekeeping and infallible explication and by means of a fervent cooperation with the graces won for us by the shedding of Our Lord's Most Precious Blood and that flow into our hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of all Graces.

The work of conversion does not end when one is Baptized or Confirmed. The work of conversion away from our sinful selves to become more conformed to the Cross of the Divine Redeemer and the merciful designs of His Most Sacred Heart for us is one that is constant. Every beat of our hearts, consecrated as they must be to that same Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, must burn with fire for the love of God as He has revealed Himself to us through His true Church and as we seek to grow in holiness and to make reparation for our sins and those of the whole world. It is useless for us to be converted in the Baptismal font unless we are willing to let God the Holy Ghost help to convert us every day to cooperate more fully with His Seven Gifts and Twelve Fruits.

Saint Paul the Apostle explained that the spiritual man, the one who is filled with Sanctifying Grace, cannot be understood by the sensual or worldly man:

For what man knoweth the things of a man, but the spirit of a man that is in him? So the things also that are of God no man knoweth, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of this world, but the Spirit that is of God; that we may know the things that are given us from God. Which things also we speak, not in the learned words of human wisdom; but in the doctrine of the Spirit, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the sensual man perceiveth not these things that are of the Spirit of God; for it is foolishness to him, and he cannot understand, because it is spiritually examined. But the spiritual man judgeth all things; and he himself is judged of no man. (2 Cor. 2: 11-15)

We must keep this in mind when our relatives and friends and associates do not understand how we can refuse to keep our silence when a putative "pontiff" calls a mosque as a "jewel" or as a "sacred" place or as he prays as a Jew without mentioning the Holy Name of the Divine Redeemer (doing voluntarily what the leaders of Sanhedrin tried to force the Apostles to do, that is, to mention the "name of that man no more") and has he praises the nonexistent ability of false religions to help build the "better world." We cannot care about what others think of us. We must say and do only those things that are pleasing God, never fearing to raise our voices to defend His greater honor and glory and majesty when these are offended by one claiming to speak for the Catholic Church on earth.

The Mystical Bride of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Holy Mother Church, is as spotless and as immaculate as Our Blessed Mother herself. The Catholic Church did not give us "hootenanny" liturgies before the aftermath of the "Second" Vatican Council.

She did not give us "inter-religious dialogue" and "inter-religious" prayer services.

She gave us liturgies that came from God the Holy Ghost, not travesties that reaffirm people in the spirit of he world.

She gave us clarity of doctrine, not ambiguity and complexity that took one "clarification" after another to attempt to make "clear."

And Holy Mother Church has always mirrored Our Blessed Mother's hatred of heresy and error, which was part of the meditation written by the late Father Frederick Faber on the Sixth Dolor of Our Lady:

In the judgment of the world, and of worldly Christians, this hatred of heresy is exaggerated, bitter, contrary to moderation, indiscreet, unreasonable, aiming at too much, bigoted, intolerant, narrow, stupid, and immoral. What can we say to defend it? Nothing which they can understand. We had, therefore, better hold our peace. If we understand God, and He understands us, it is not so very hard to go through life suspected, misunderstood and unpopular. The mild self-opinionatedness of the gentle, undiscerning good will also take the world's view and condemn us; for there is a meek-loving positiveness about timid goodness which is far from God, and the instincts of whose charity is more toward those who are less for God, while its timidity is searing enough for harsh judgment. There are conversions where three-quarters of the heart stop outside the Church and only a quarter enters, and heresy can only be hated by an undivided heart. But if it is hard, it has to be borne. A man can hardly have the full use of his senses who is bent on proving to the world, God's enemy, that a thorough-going Catholic hatred of heresy is a right frame of mind. We might as well force a blind man to judge a question of color. Divine love inspheres in us a different circle of life, motive, and principle, which is not only not that of the world, but in direct enmity with it. From a worldly point of view, the craters in the moon are more explicable things than we Christians with our supernatural instinct.

We must therefore permit God the Holy Ghost to come into our souls with His bright burning flames at every moment of our lives so that we will filled with love of God and hatred of our own sins as we seek to cooperate with the graces He sends us through the loving hands of His Spouse, Our Lady, making sure to honor His Spouse as we pray as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit.

May this be our prayer this day and every day our own lives:

Come, Holy Ghost, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and enkindle in them the fire of Thy love.

V. Send forth Thy Spirit and they shall be created.

R. And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.

Let us pray. O God, Who didst instruct the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Ghost, grant us in the same Spirit to be truly wise, and ever to rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

A blessed Pentecost Sunday and Octave to you all!

P.S. Today's original article, "Jorge Goes Forth and Does the Work of Antichrist Every Day," was posted around 3:00 a.m. this morning. There will be a brief follow-up on Tuesday before the conclusion of "Jorge the Most Wicked of Demons."

Jorge Goes Forth And Does the Work of Antichrist Every Day

A Pentecost Sunday reflection will appear later today. I am simply out of steam for the moment after expending a lot of it on this commentary, which deals with the results of Irish voters approving a referendum in favor a “gay marriage.”

Our Lady, Queen of the Holy Apostles and Help of Christians, pray for us.

A blessed Pentecost Sunday to you all.

By His Gifts We Can Know, Love, and Serve Him

Although work continues on part three of the current series, the two late-night postings earlier this week put behind on several other projects for the family. As I have noted recently, limitations caused by some continuing health problems (some of which are simply nagging age-related penances) that require more rest than late-night postings afford have caused the articles to be reduced in number. That having been noted, I was surprised to see the number of pages required to print up those I have published in the past three months was still quite large. Thank you for bearing with me.

Although mid-afternoon now on the Vigil of Pentecost, a day of fast and partial abstinence, I did want to republish a reflection for this day. While I intended to resume work on “Jorge The Most Wicked of Demons” today, the Irish referendum on “gay marriage” demands some rather immediate attention. An appropriate commentary will be published to accompany a Pentecost Sunday reflection.

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

Saint John Baptist de Rossi, pray for us.

Jorge The Most Wicked of Demons, part two

Today’s article was posted at around 3:30 a.m. It has undergone a few formatting revisions since the original posting. A few paragraphs have been inserted into the text of the commentary that are pertinent to “Father” Timothy Radcliffe, O.P., that readers may find of interest.

Work proceeds on part three, although I am not going to stay up as late I have the past two nights to complete the first two part of this series.

Thank you for your patience.

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

Saint Bernardine of Siena, pray for us.

Jorge The Most Wicked Of Demons, part one

Although there is only a brief news report at present on the matter, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who is truly the most wicked of the visible demons who are prowling about the work seeking the ruin of souls these days, has made world headlines again by admonishing the conciliar “bishops” of Italy to stop telling the faithful “what to do.” In other words, Jorge is telling putative Successors of the Apostles to stop fulfilling the mission that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ

Spiritual Resource: Novena to God the Holy Ghost

The oldest of all of Holy Mother Church's Novenas, the Novena to God the Holy Ghost in preparation for Pentecost Sunday, May 24, 2015, begins today, May 15, 2015, the Feast of Saint John Baptist de la Salle within the Octave of the Ascension of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The last day to pray for the Novena, of course, is on the Vigil of Pentecost, Saturday, May 23, 2015.

Our Lady, Queen of the Holy Apostles, pray for us.

Christ the King Takes His Throne In Heaven

[Please scroll down for yesterday's late afternoon posting, "Truly Frightening To Behold the Willing Refusal To Accept the Truth."]

Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's forty days' of teaching the Apostles after his glorious Resurrection from the dead on Easter Sunday culminated this very day, Ascension Thursday, as He instructed the Eleven as follows before going up into Heaven from Mount Olivet at whose foot He had suffered His Agony in the Garden six weeks before as Saints Peter, James and John slumbered:

"And the eleven disciples went into Galilee, unto the mountain where Jesus had appointed them. And seeing him they adored: but some doubted. And Jesus coming, spoke to them, saying: All power is given to me in heaven and in earth. Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world." (Matthew 28: 16-20.)

There is no "expiration" date on this command. Indeed, the commentary in the Bishop Richard Challoner version of the Douay-Rheims Bible explains that the command is in force until Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ comes in glory on the Last Day to judge the living and the dead and that His Church could never go astray, meaning, of course, that it is impossible for the Catholic Church to give any impression at all that God is pleased with false religions such as Mohammedanism and Talmudic Judaism, which is what the conciliar "popes" have done consistently in the past fifty years, having reached the point of complete absurdity now under Jorge Mario Bergoglio:

18 "All power"... See here the warrant and commission of the apostles and their successors, the bishops and pastors of Christ's church. He received from his Father all power in heaven and in earth: and in virtue of this power, he sends them (even as his Father sent him, St. John 20. 21) to teach and disciple, not one, but all nations; and instruct them in all truths: and that he may assist them effectually in the execution of this commission, he promises to be with them, not for three or four hundred years only, but all days, even to the consummation of the world. How then could the Catholic Church ever go astray; having always with her pastors, as is here promised, Christ himself, who is the way, the truth, and the life. St. John 14."

The Catholic Church can never go astray. She is infallible. She does not give us any "new ecclesiology" or "hermeneutic of continuity and discontinuity" to deconstruct the meaning of dogmatic truth, thus attacking the essence of the nature of God Himself, or false ecumenism. Her pastors do not esteem the symbols and values and places of false religions and they do not engage in "inter-religious" "prayer" services. Her pastors do not teach that false religions have a "right" from God to propagate their false beliefs publicly and they do not praise those false beliefs for being "able" to "contribute" to the building of a "better" world. Pastors of the Catholic Church insist always and at all times that Catholicism is the one and only foundation of personal and social order with no equivocation, uncertainty, ambiguity or obscurity of any kind.

As Pope Pius XI noted in Mortalium Animos, January 6, 1928, there is need to "strain" to "find" Catholicism in the pronouncements made by Holy Mother Church:

" For the teaching authority of the Church, which in the divine wisdom was constituted on earth in order that revealed doctrines might remain intact for ever, and that they might be brought with ease and security to the knowledge of men, and which is daily exercised through the Roman Pontiff and the Bishops who are in communion with him, has also the office of defining, when it sees fit, any truth with solemn rites and decrees, whenever this is necessary either to oppose the errors or the attacks of heretics, or more clearly and in greater detail to stamp the minds of the faithful with the articles of sacred doctrine which have been explained. " (Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos, January 6, 1928.)

How has the integrity of the doctrine of the First commandment been stamped on "minds of the faithful" by the words and deeds of the conciliar "popes"?

Christ the King has taken His throne in Heaven. We must ascend with Him in our thoughts and prayers at all times as we refuse to have our minds and hearts poisoned by the words and the deeds of the false shepherds of the counterfeit church of conciliarism who dare to blaspheme God so regularly and so openly and/or who refuse to open their mouths in defense of the honor and majesty and glory of God when He is so blasphemed and offended.

As the angel made clear to the Eleven as they looked into the sky as Our Lord disappeared from their sight on this day, there is work for us to do:

"They therefore who were come together, asked him, saying: Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? But he said to them: It is not for you to know the times or moments, which the Father hath put in his own power: But you shall receive the power of the Holy Ghost coming upon you, and you shall be witnesses unto me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and even to the uttermost part of the earth. And when he had said these things, while they looked on, he was raised up: and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they were beholding him going up to heaven, behold two men stood by them in white garments.

" Who also said: Ye men of Galilee, why stand you looking up to heaven? This Jesus who is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come, as you have seen him going into heaven. Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount that is called Olivet, which is nigh Jerusalem, within a sabbath day's journey. And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode Peter and John, James and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James of Alpheus, and Simon Zelotes, and Jude the brother of James. All these were persevering with one mind in prayer with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren." (Acts 1: 6-14.)

Yes, we can't stand around all day long looking into the sky. There is work for us to do before Our Lord comes for us at the moment of our own Particular Judgments, which can come at any hour and on any day, and at the end of the world to judge the living and the dead.

The work that we have to do is to sanctify and to save our immortal souls as members of the Catholic Church, work that requires us to be attentive to the graces that were won for us on the wood of the Holy Cross by the shedding of every single drop of Our Blessed Lord Saviour Jesus Christ's Most Precious Blood and the flow into our hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces. And to cooperate with the graces that Our Lady sends we must be fortified in prayer, which is one of the reasons that we must keep most assiduously the first Novena in the history of the Church, the Novena to God the Holy Ghost.

Our Lady was separated from her Divine Son when He Ascended to Heaven. She was united to Him, however, by means of her reception of His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in Holy Communion. She was united to the Apostles and the others who prayed in the same Upper Room where He had instituted the Holy Priesthood and the Holy Eucharist at the Last Supper on Maundy Thursday. She is united to us. She is our Blessed Mother. We need to ask her for all the graces that we need to save and to sanctify our souls as we eschew worldliness, which is the theme of today's substantially revised article, and as we refuse to participate in the fraud of a false religion, conciliarism, that is replete with daily outrages given to her Divine Son, starting with the outrage that is the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo service, and as we make much reparation for our sins and those of the whole world as the consecrated slaves of her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, especially on this day after the ninety-eighth anniversary of Our Lady's first apparition to Jacinta and Francisco Marto and Lucia dos Santos in the Cova da Iria near Fatima, Portugal.

A blessed Feast of the Ascension of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to you all.

Truly Frightening To Behold the Willing Refusal To Accept the Truth

The article delayed by several internet access outages and the loss of two hours’ worth of post-Midnight writing earlier today is now posted! Raul Castro and the Neocatechumenal Way are the featured players in this current commentary.

Making A Fuss About Hus

Well, this commentary took a long time to complete. I am not producing the articles at the rapid pace as in the past, something that is the result of a variety of factors, not the least being the duties of attending to basic chores for the family as well as a concession to the need to limit the number of late-night/early morning postings such as this one. Indeed, the work spent on “Junipero Serra: Under Attack by the World and By Bergoglio” took so much time and effort to complete that it took me two full days to recognize, mostly at Sharon’s urging after she read the article, that a second part to Monday’s posting would have been entirely superfluous as there is really nothing more to add to the subject.

This new article deals with the fuss that has been made about the heretic Jan Hus by conciliar “popes” such as Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II and Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Bemedict XVI in the past and the fuss that Jorge Mario Bergoglio will be making on July 6, 2015, when a latter-day Hussite, Miloslav “Cardinal” Vlk, the retired conciliar “archbishop” of Prague, will represent the Argentine Apostate at an event in Prague, Czech Republic that will “commemorate” the six hundredth anniversary of the allegedly “unjust” execution of the heretic Hus as carried out by the civil authorities after the heretical priest, who remained obstinate in his heresy until the end, had been condemned by the Council of Florence. There is much detail in this article.

A shorter commentary on a related subject might appear tomorrow. Two or three commentaries on events in the Judeo-Masonic world of naturalism should appear within the next week as I keep plugging away as time and strength permit.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Gregory Nazianzen, pray for us.

Pope Saint Pius V and the Conversion of the Conciliarists

Pope Saint Pius V and the Conversion of the Conciliarists is a slightly revised version of my reflection on the life and the 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.

The almost-at-dawn posting of yesterday's article simple made the completion of part two, no less two other articles, possible. A few of my ubiquitous typographical errors in part one have been spotted and corrected. A few.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Pope Saint Pius X, pray for us.
