On the Feast of the Beheading of Saint John the Baptist

Today is the Feast of the Beheading of Saint John the Baptist and the Commemoration of Saint Sabina. I am republishing a reflection on this feast that was substantially enlarged and revised four years ago with a few new revisions.  

The next original article on this site will deal with Jorge Mario Bergoglio's recent remarks to Portuguese Jesuits. This all so very wearying as the Argentine Apostate never says anything substantially new. However, it does seem that he is getting bolder and bolder in denying that "unions" between those engaged in perverted sins against nature are forbidden, and he is more or less saying now that chastity is neither possible nor desirable in the lives of those who have chosen to engage in the sin of Sodom. Yet it is that the "resist while recognize" crowd themselvse grow bolder and bolder in their denial of the true nature of the papacy and of authentic Catholic ecclesiology. 

More in a few days.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.

Those Who Pervert Justice and Truth to "Save Democracy" In This Life Will Answer to Christ the King for Their Corruption

Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr.’s epic corruption is beyond question. However, so few people, relatively speaking, understand that his most grievous form of corruption is his support for sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance while using the levers of injustice to imprison those who seek to defend the defenseless. This long commentary explains the matter fully.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.

Saint Louis IX, King of France: The Epitome of A Just and Holy Monarch Who Governed for Christ the King and His True Church

Today, Tuesday, Friday, August 25, 2023, is the Feast of Saint Louis IX, King of France, that great exemplar of the Social Reign of Christ the King. Saint Louis was taught by his holy mother, Blessed Blanche of Castile, to prefer death rather to commit a deliberate Mortal Sin. He heard two Masses a day and was a member of the Third Order of Saint Francis, whose patron saint he remains to this day.

Saint Louis strove to rule according to the Mind of Christ the King as He had deposited It exclusively in the Catholic Church, recognizing that he, Louis IX, would have to answer to Christ the King at the moment of his own Particular Judgment for how he ruled his subjects. His letter to his son Philip is a succinct summary of the principles of Catholic Social Teaching. It is a model for how everyone in public life should conduct himself in order to please Christ the King as the devoted client of Our Lady, she who is our Immaculate Queen.

Finally, I can report to you that the next original article for this site is being written but that its completion is being slowed by some minor physical ailments, including, among other things, penitential headaches that have lasted for nearly five days and the difficulty in seeing the computer screen because of the macular degeneration that is in its incipient stages. This is all terrific penance, which I need for my sins, but the ailments have slowed me down some. It is my hope to have the next article, one of four upon which I have prepared material to quote, will be published no later than the Monday, August 28, 2023, the Feast of Saint Augustine of Hippo and the Commemoration of Saint Hermes

Vivat Christus Rex!

Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon.

On the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (2023)

Today is the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, to which the month of August is devoted, that heart that was pierced with Seven Swords of Sorrow during the Life of her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus was formed out of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. These twin hearts of matchless love suffered as one and they beat as one while on earth and they have beat as one in Heaven since Our Lady was Assumed into Heaven body and soul after her death.

Our Lady's Immaculate Heart was unstained by Original Sin or Actual Sins. The Immaculate Heart of the Mother of God, therefore, was capable of a purity of love of God and of her fellow men that is almost indescribable. Our Lady's Most Pure, Most Holy Heart despises the sins that caused her Divine Son to suffer in His Sacred Humanity during His Passion and Death but at the same time is full of a perfect and completely pure maternal compassion for erring sinners such as you and me.

Our Lord, showing us His infinite compassion for us erring sinners, has sent us His Most Blessed Mother to provide us with her maternal assistance to get home to Heaven as members of His true Church founded upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope.

We have been given the Rosary, the Brown Scapular of Mount Carmel, the Miraculous Medal, and the Green Scapular through her loving hands, through which flow the graces won for us by the shedding of Our Lord's Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross.

Her apparition to Juan Diego and the miraculous image of herself she left on his tilma helped to convert millions of Indians to the true Faith in the Americas.

Our Lady ratified Pope Pius IX's solemn proclamation of her Immaculate Conception by proclaiming herself to Saint Bernadette Soubirous to be the Immaculate Conception on March 25, 1858. And Our Lady's appearance in the Cova da Iria from May 13, 1917, to October 13, 1917, gave us Heaven's Peace Plan, one that runs through her Immaculate Heart.

We must endeavor at all times to fulfill, as far as we are able in this time of apostasy and betrayal, Our Lady's Fatima Message in our own lives, especially by praying as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit and by living penitentially as the consecrated slaves of her Divine Son through her own Immaculate Heart.

The era of apostasy and betrayal will end when the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is made manifest. We can play our roles, small though they may be, in helping to bring about this triumph.

Remember also that non-tax-deductible gifts are always needed and would be highly appreciated at this time. Thank you.

The next original commentary on this site should be posted by the Feast of Saint Bartholomew, Thursday, August 24, 2023.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now, and at the hour of our death.

Memorandum to Donald John Trump: The Inviolability of Innocent Human Life is Non-Negotiable

Although I was going to write about the latest political indictment handed down against former President Donald John Trump, I have chosen instead to write about his reiterating his support for “exceptions” to the binding precepts of the Fifth Commandment as essential for pro-life Americans not to be considered as “extreme” as the pro-death crowd is.


It is not to be extreme to obey God and His Laws.

Thank you.

The Apostle to the Northland: Saint Hyacinth, O.P.

Today is the Feast of Feast of Saint Hyacinth, O.P., the great Apostle of the Northland and one of the first members of the Order of Preachers founded by Saint Dominic de Guzman. (Today is also the third day within the Octave of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Octave Day of Saint Lawrence the Deacon.)

Saint Hyacinth's great zeal for souls and his desire to convert pagans out of their diabolical superstitions into the true Faith, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there can be no true social order. Saint Hyacinth, who had such a great and abiding love for Our Lady, who favored him with apparitions, stands in quite a contrast with Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI and his successor, Jorge Mario Bergoglio. Both of these heretics have praised the very false religions that Saint Hyacinth—and every other Catholic missionary—sought to eradicate from the face of the earth by seeking the unconditional conversion of their adherents to the false religion. The difference between Saint Hyacinth's fidelity and apostasy of the conciliar "popes" stark. It is right there in black and white for all who have the grace to see. See for yourself. As considerable time was spent adding links, including a complete library of articles that have appeared about Bergoglio on this site in the fifty-three months, four days, to the preface of this revised article in order to provide readers with a useful and handy resource for those who are new to this site and want to review past articles on Jorge Mario Bergoglio, it has been impossible to add more recent examples of the endless reaffirmations that the Argentine Apostate has given to those who adhere to false religions, including Talmudism, from which he derives much of his "intellectual" and "spiritual" sustenance. In other words, "Pope Francis" is a stooge and servant of Antichrist.  

An original commentary will be published within thirty minutes of this posting.

Saint Joachim: Fatherly Affection, Eternal Orientation

Saint Joachim, the father of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God and the Mediatrix of All Graces, knew the contempt that would be visited upon His Divine Grandson, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, sent himself into voluntary exile after he was denounced by a priest of the Old Dispensation for not producing a child after twenty years of marriage to his wife, our good Saint Anne.

It was during his exile that Saint Joachim was visited by an angel, who reminded him of the fact that Abraham's wife, Sarah, did not conceive a child until she was ninety years old, telling him that his wife, Saint Anne, would conceive a daughter named Mary, who would be the Mother of God. Saint Joachim and Saint Anne brought their daughter to the Temple when she was three years old, giving their long-awaited child back to the good God Who had given them to her so that she could be the Mother of their own Saviour, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. This should teach us to do everything possible to foster vocations to the priesthood and the consecrated religious life among our children, so that we can give them back to God so as to yield a spiritual bounty of souls in His service, especially in this time of apostasy and betrayal.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Anne, pray for us.

Saint Roch, pray for us.
