Revised: We Must Do No Less than the North American Martyrs

[Morning Update: Well, I made the mistake of looking at the Vatican website, discovering that Jorge Mario Bergoglio has written a letter to the Catholics of Red China that, in essence, tells them to be "good citizens" and to accept the poison pill he has given them. The false "pontiff" recognizes that Chinese Catholics might have to offer a "word" of criticism to their captors, which is laughable given the fact that dissent is forbidden in Red China. Suffice it to say that I will postpone work on the next commentary on the dog and pony show in the nation's capital in order to do a commentary on Bergoglio's letter to Chinese Catholics, although I will post the article that I have been working on in a few hours. A blessed Feast of the North American Martyrs to you all.]

Today, Wednesday, September 26, 2018, is the Feast of the North American Martyrs, the eight Jesuits who gave up their lives for the Holy Faith in what are now parts of Canada and upstate New York between 1642 and 1649, and the Commemoration of Saints Cornelius and Cyprian.

This brief reflection speaks volumes about the contrast between the life and martyrdom of the eight men killed between 1642 and 1649 and the conciliar "saints". Each of the North American Martyr (Isaac Jogues, Rene Goupil, Jean Lalande, Gabriel Lalemant, Noel Chabanel, Anthony Daniel, Charles Garnier, and John de Brebeuf) shed their blood to Catholicize the upper reaches of North America. They were not interested in "inculturating" the Catholic liturgy with the pagan superstitions and barbaric practices of the Iroquois. They were concerned only about attempting to convert the heathens to the true Faith and to plant the seeds for the conversion of the land in which their noble missionary work had taken them.

Can we do any less than they?

We must seek to "keep it Catholic" at all times as we seek to plant the seeds for the conversion of this nation to become the Catholic States of America.

The next commentary on this site, which be my last for a while about the Bergoglian revolution against Catholic morality, is almost ready to be published. I expect it to be posted by late this morning. The commentary after that one, however, will take a few days to complete as it will be thorough review of the public manifestation of Antichrist's agents in the naturalist realm's intent to discredit anyone who seeks to dissent from their "infallible" agenda.

As the commentary will remind readers once again, the surreal state of things that we are witnessing is but the perfection of the inherent degeneracy contained in the founding principles, which had to result i in the triumph of the adversary and his forces of darkness as they rejected the connection between social order and the true Faith, it will take two to three full days of work before it is completed. Be assured, though, that I will address many matters, including the campaign to prevent Judge Brett Michael Kavanaugh from being confirmed to sit as an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States of America. Persecution is here. Persecution is now, and it is no longer limited to the realm of higher education, a realm where I experienced this persecution first-hand and from which I have been excluded.

Bergoglio the Red Surrenders Faithful Chinese Catholics to Their Persecutors

Although much has been written in the past in this about the sellout of the counterfeit church of conciliarism to the murderous Red Chinese thugs that is now “provisionally complete,” there are some additional points to be made. This commentary attempts to elucidate those additional points while driving home a few made in the past.

At this point, however, I do not know what further proof is needed to convince anyone that the men in Rome are imposters who are but precursors of Antichrist. Everything they believe, say and do is anti-Christ.

Our Lady of Ransom, pray for us.

From June 30, 2007: A Betrayal Worthy of the Antichrist

Although time does not permit anything close to a full commentary at this time, I have just learned of the conciliar Vatican’s announcement of its “provisional” surrender to the atheistic, Communist, pro-abortion, anti-family, repressive, murderous, exploitive, totalitarian Chicom thugs. This is as much a betrayal of the late Bishop Ignatius Kung as Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria Montini/Paul VI’s betrayal of the late Josef Cardinal Mindszenty. It is also a betrayal of the countless numbers of brave Chinese Catholics who were imprisoned, tortured and even murdered trying to remain faithful to what they thought was the Catholic Church and the papacy.This betrayal did not begin with Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who never met a Communist he did not fawn over, or his equally red Secretary of State, Pietro Parolin. No, this betrayal began clandestinely during the anti-pontificate of Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II and had its essential principles outlined openly by Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI in 2007. Jorge Mario Bergoglio has been talking about doing this almost from the beginnings of his own false “pontificate.”

Here is a listing of a few of the commentaries about this betrayal that have appeared on this website since Ratzinger/Benedict’s letter of June 30, 2007:

Still Selling the Rope After All These Years, part two

Doubly Betrayed by Jorge and His False Church

Additionally, an anthology containing a number of my commentaries on Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s own love of leftism, which is a product of his Talmudic hatred of Catholicism, was published earlier this year:Vanquished by Our Lady: Comrade Bergoglio.

A complete commentary will be published by Monday, the Feast of Our Lady of Ransom.

Saint Matthew the Apostle: From Caesar's Collector of Tribute to God's Collector of Souls

[An original article, , was published abot eight hours ago and revised slightly before this revised reflection was published. Oh, I suppose that there is some interest out there about the latest dog and pony show that has come to the nation's capital. This is to assure the few readers of this site that there will be a commentary on the newest sideshow in a few days.]

Today is the Feast of Saint Matthew the Apostle and Evangelist.

Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ called Levi from his duties as a collector of tribute for Caesar to follow Him. Levi quit his position as a tax collector to become a collector of souls for God and His true Church. Saint Matthew wrote His Gospel to convince his fellow Jews to accept Our Lord as the Divine Redeemer and to convert to the true Faith, Catholicism.

This is quite a contrast with the work of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who esteems Talmudic Judaism as an instrument of "justice" although it denies the Sacred Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ and wages warfare upon those who seek to restore the Social Reign of Christ the King, to say nothing of the fact that many of its rabbis,including his pal Abraham Skorka, support abortion and perversity under cover of the civil law. Quite a difference. It's the difference between fidelity and apostasy, between Catholicism and conciliarism.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Matthew the Apostle, pray for us.

Ratzinger Persists in His World of Contradiction and Paradox to the Very End

Antipope Emeritus Benedict XVI is in the news again, which means that work on the commentary that I have been writing for the past six days has been halted until later today, the Feast of Saint Matthew the Apostle and Evangelist.

A revised reflection on today’s feast will be published after about nine hours after the posting of this new article.

Thank you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, Jorge Mario Bergoglio is the Biggest Clerical Bully of Them All

[Update on September 19, 2018, the Feast of Saint Januarius and Companions and the one hundred-seventy-third apparition of Our Lady of La Salette: Completion of the next article has been delayed by the press of events, including Bergoglio's almost daily "doubling down" as a reaction to the Fathe Carlo Maria Vignano testimony by appoining through-going, unapologetic, undisguised moral relativists from within the ranks of his "hierachy" to serve at the upcoming "youth synod" next month. I hope to complete the commentary in time for posting on Friday, the Feast of Saint Matthew the Apostle and Evangelst.]

The title of this commentary is pretty self-explanatory.

Some Reflections on the Feast of the Seven Dolors of the Blessed Virgin Mary

oday is the Feast of the Seven Dolors of the Blessed Virgin Mary in September.

We are called to meditate on the Seven Dolors of Our Lady every day of our lives. While there are many good meditations on the sufferings of Our Lady, including those provided by the revelations of Anne Katherine Emmerich and the Venerable Mary of Agreda, the late Father Frederick Faber has given us much food for inspirational meditation in his The Foot of the Cross, published originally as The Dolors of Mary in 1857. Consider this brief excerpt from Father Faber's reflections:

"But let us make the world stand still, and see how it looks. If our common love for God, which is so poor, is irritated by the sight, what must Mary have suffered? For what is irritation to our weakness to her would be the most deep and transcending sorrow. God comes to His creation. It does not stir. It cannot. It lies in the hollow beneath Him, and has no escape. He comes in the beauty of a mercy, which is almost incredible, because it is so beautiful. But seemingly it does not attract the world. He draws nigh. Creation must do something now. It freezes itself up before His eye. He may have other worlds, more fertile, more accessible to Him, than this. In the spiritual tropics, where the angels dwell, He may perhaps be welcome. But not here. This is the North Pole of His universe. He shed His life's blood upon it, and it would not thaw. It is unmanageable, unnavigable, uninhabitable for Him. He can do nothing at all with it, but let His sun make resplendent colored lights in the icebergs, or bid the moon shine with a wanner loveliness than elsewhere, or fill the long-night sky with the streamers of the Aurora, which even the Esquimaux, burrowing in his hut, will not go out to see. The only difference is that the material pole understands its business. which is to make ice in all imaginable shapes; whereas we men are so used to our own coldness, that we do not know how cold we are, and imagine ourselves to be the temperate zone of God's creation." Our sins helped to thrust those Seven Swords of Sorrow through and through Our Lady's Immaculate Heart at various points during her life, including during her Divine Son's Passion and Death. We must resolve never to grieve her Immaculate Heart again as consider our joy and our privilege to live penitentially as the consecrated slaves to her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the same Immaculate Heart. (Father Frederick Faber, The Foot of the Cross, the Dolors of Mary.)

We can help to make reparation for our sins that have grieved the Immaculate Heart of Mary if we pray more and more Rosaries each day, if we help to propagate devotion to her Seven Dolors. Indeed, Our Lady promises us the following graces if we promote devotion to her Seven Dolors:

1) I will grant peace to their families

2) They will be enlightened about the divine mysteries.

3) I will console them in their pains and I will accompany them in their work.

4) I will give them as much as they ask for as long as it does not oppose the adorable will of my divine Son or the sanctification of their souls.

5) I will defend them in their spiritual battles with the infernal enemy and I will protect them at every instant of their lives.

6) I will visibly help them at the moment of their death, they will see the face of their Mother.

7. I have obtained (This Grace) from my divine Son, that those who propagate this devotion to my tears and dolors, will be taken directly from this earthly life to eternal happiness since all their sins will be forgiven and my Son and I will be their eternal consolation and joy.

As a terrible sinner, I am counting on my own promoting of devotion to the Seven Dolors of the Blessed Virgin Mary to help me just a little bit at the moment of my Particular Judgment.

What about you?

The next original article to be posted on this site is almost done. Indeed, it has been formatted for posting. However, although there is not much work to do on it, there is just enough to delay until late this afternoon. Another, briefer commentary should appear on Sunday. Thank you,

Finally, please remember the soul of the late Father John Joseph Sullivan, who was my seminary professor at Holy Apostles Seminary in the 1983-1984 academic year, on this day, which would have been his one hundred second birthday had he not died in May of 2000.

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

A blessed Feast of the Seven Dolors of the Blessed Virgin Mary to you all.

Our Lady of Dolors, pray for us.

Saint Nicomedes, pray for us.

Revised: In This Sign We Shall Conquer All the Enemies of Our Salvation

The Saviour of the world hung on the wood of the Holy Cross:

Ecce lignum Crucis, in quo salus mundit pependit (Behold the wood of the Cross, on which hung the Saviour of the world. (Adoration of the Cross, Good Friday Liturgy.)

The Cross of the Divine Redeemer was displayed prominently on street corners and in the nooks and crannies of every village in Europe during the era of Christendom. There is no "expiration date" on the Cross of the Divine Redeemer's relevance to the life of any man or of any nation.

We must lift high the Cross in our own daily lives and we must plant it firmly in the soil of our nation without any apology whatsoever as Catholicism is the one and only foundation of personal and social order.

We must also remember that Our Lady stands at the foot of her Divine Son's Most Holy Cross in every true offering of Holy Mass just as she stood at the foot of the Holy Cross on Good Friday. She stands with us as we bear our own crosses in our daily lives. We must, therefore, seek the assistance of the Mother of God in lifting high her Divine Son's Holy Cross in our daily lives, praying as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit.

The cross is ever present in each of our lives, and for this we must say with Saint Francis of Assisi, Deo gratias!

Penance is the path to Heaven.

We do our penances by carrying our crosses with gratitude.

Isn't it great to be a Catholic?

Hail, O Holy Cross! Hail!

A blessed Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross to each of you.

Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.

Work on the next article continues.

Revised: The Holy Name of Mary Must Be Ever on Our Lips

Today is the Feast of the Holy Name of Mary, commemorating the victory won by King Jan Sobieski of Poland over the Mohammedans at the Gates of Vienna on September 12, 1683.

The troops under the command of Jan Sobieski exclaimed "Jesus, Mary, Sobieski!" as they prayed their Rosaries and routed the Turkish forces.

Each of us does battle every day with the Turks, that is, with the forces of the world, the flesh, and the devil. We must call upon the Holy Name of Mary, something we do at least one hundred fifty-three times every day if we pray all fifteen mysteries of Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary.

This sweet name of the Mother of God must ever be on our lips, and it must be exclaimed by public officials as she is honored as the Queen of Heaven and on earth, yes, of each and every nation on earth, including the United States of America. No one should be ashamed at any time to proclaim the Holy Name of Mary publicly. 

Indeed, we must do so with joy and confidence. Saint Louis de Montfort taught us in True Devotion to Mary that those who are the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary should address others with a Marian salutation.

How felicitous it is, therefore, to greet others with Ave Maria! or a Salve Regina!

How glorious it is to make invocations such as "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, we love you, save souls!" or "Sweet Heart of Mary, be my salvation" or "Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and the hour of our death."

May Our Lady, she who is our life, our sweetness and our hope, help us to grow in this virtue, especially in this time of apostasy and betrayal.

A blessed Feast of the Holy Name of Mary to you all!

Sweet Name of Mary, be our salvation. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

The next original article should appear by tomorrow morning. Thank you.

A Lifelong Refusal to Accept the Certainty of Dogmatic Truth: Sixty-Six Years of Priestly Apostasy

The nonagenarian "new theologian" from Bavaria is still trying to "search for truth" by means of the Hegelian dialectical principles that he learned from the master of contradiction, paradox and confusion the late Father Hans Urs von Balthasar. Although I did not expect to revisit Antipope Emeritus Ratzinger/Benedict's lifelong war against the nature of dogmatic truth--indeed, the nature of all truth as he is a relativist and a rationalist, his recent work has given me this opportunity to do so.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Nicholas of Tolentino, pray for us.
