Friday, July 28, 2017, Update

Although I have started another commentary on the Charlie Gard tragedy, which will, it appears, end today once he dies as a result of his court-ordered execution, the injury that I suffered on Tuesday evening, July 18, 2017, the Feast of Saint Camillus de Lellis, continues to cause significant pain in the lower back and down the right leg. This is superb penance, and I very grateful that God has chosen to bestow it upon me as an act of mercy to help this erring sinner make a bit of reparation for his many sins. Deo gratias!

Indeed, most of yesterday, Thursday, July 27, 2017, the Feast of Saint Pantaleon, was spent getting x-rays of the affected area after receiving referral for them from our chiropractor. Evidently dissatisfied with the x-rays, though, or seeking confirmation of a diagnosis, he has instructed me to undergo a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of the area today, the Feast of Saints Nazarius, Celsus, Victor, and Innocent. This means that writing will have to wait until Saturday, July 29, 2017, the Feast of Saint Martha. However, I do hope to complete the commentary on the Charlie Gard commentary for posting on the Eighth Sunday after Pentecost and the Commemoration of Saints Abdon and Sennen on Sunday, July 30, 2017.

For the moment, therefore, I want to highlight an older article, The Council of Trent Must Have Been Wrong for Jorge to be Correct, which was published nearly four months ago now, by way of responding to an article in L’Osservatore Romano authored by a conciliar presbyter, Giulio, Cirignano, who said that Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s agenda of “conversion” away from “religion” and to “faith” was being impeded by numerous priests/presbyters and pseudo-bishops. My physical condition permitting, I will have a specific commentary on this in a few days. For the time being, though, the earlier article discusses many of the points in L'Osservatore Romano article says pseudo-priests are main obstacle to Jorge's agenda of a "pastoral conversion".

Finally, I will try to raise funds privately to pay for yesterday’s x-rays ($500) and today’s MRI ($400). Failing that, however, I will post a notice on this site. I would appreciate the prayers of those who access this site for my recovery and for the raising of the funds to cover the diagnostic imaging that has been ordered by our chiropractor. Thank you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Nazarius, Celsus, Victor, and Innocent, pray for us.

July 21, 2017, Update

Well, it was my intention to do some writing while taking the family on some travels over the past eight days now. Circumstances have not permitted anything other than the republication of two reflections.  However, I do hope to return to the computer on a regular basis by the middle of next week at the latest, although this depends upon what kind of report I receive after getting examined for a serious injury to my neck and spine that was incurred when I fell off a curb next to the flatbed of a tow truck that was called to take our 2008 minivan in for unexpected repairs caused by the vehicle’s front axle falling out of the transmission! (I no longer write about such experiences for public consumption. Suffice it to say that this recent experience, which occurred  very late on Tuesday, July 18, 2017, included a lot of very interesting details. God will not be outdone in His generosity, and my sins deserve every single cross that He chooses in His mercy to send me. )

For the moment, though, I do want to alert readers of this site to an important article by Dr. Paul Byrne on the Charlie Gard () case: http://Charlie Gard in A System of Death (there is one reference in this article to “Pope Francis,” but this does not detract from the accuracy of the information provided.)

Please continue to pray for Charlie Gard, his parents and for all who are assisting them at this time.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Lawrence Brindisi, pray for us.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel: Shielding Us With Her Love and Care

We must use the shield of Our Lady of Mount Carmel's Brown Scapular to defend us against all of the attacks of the devil in our lives, especially as we seek to protect ourselves from the contagions of conciliarism, including the insidious lie of false ecumenism.

The Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, which is commemorated today, Sunday, July 16, 2017, the Sixth Sunday after Pentecost, represents what tremendous love that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ has for us by sending us His Most Blessed Mother to give us a sacramental by which we are clothed in the garment of her Brown Scapular, which serves as a particular protection at the moment of death if we have been faithful to all of the conditions of our enrollment.

Our Lord has permitted His Most Blessed Mother to give us so many aids to get home to Heaven--the Rosary, the Brown Scapular, the Miraculous Medal, the Green Scapular, devotion to her Immaculate Heart as part of her Fatima Message.

We must wear our Brown Scapular of Mount Carmel constantly as we bear witness as best we can that we have been given a loving Mother in Heaven who intercedes for us to live in such a way in this passing, mortal vale of tears that we will always be ready to die and have her pleading for us nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen."

Let us continue to pray for each other and for Holy Mother Church in this time of apostasy and betrayal as we shield ourselves in Our Lady's garment of the Mount Scapular and pray with fervor and devotion her Most Holy Rosary every day. I beg your prayers also for our daughter on the occasion of the ninth anniversary of her Confirmation.

A blessed commemortated Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel to you all!

Our Lady of Mount Carmel, pray for us.

Saint Simon Stock, pray for us.

Saint Henry the Emperor: Ever Intent on Spreading the Holy Faith

I want to honor my own Confirmation patron saint, Saint Henry the Emperor, on his feast day once again.

Saint Henry the Emperor was a superb exemplar of the Social Reign of Christ the King who sought to foster peace among men by promoting the missionary work of Holy Mother Church in parts of central and eastern Europe near the end of the First Millennium. He knew that Catholicism was the one and only foundation of personal and social order, seeking at all times to honor Christ the King and Mary our Immaculate Queen.

May we plead with him this day and every day to help us to see the world more clearly through the eyes of the Catholic Faith as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, He Who is the King of every man and every nation on the face of this earth without any exception whatsoever, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

A rather thorough commentary is being prepared to comment on the recent attack by Antonio Spadoro and Miguel Figuerora on what they called the "ecumenism of hate" that has united many Catholic supporters of President Donald John Trump with evangelical and fundamentalist Protestants. Please understand that I am going to take whatever time I need to complete this commentary, but it will be very thorough.

Finally, please continue to pray for Charlie Gard, his parents and all who are seeking to save his life from a court-ordered execution of the sort that was abolished in the United Kingdom decades ago. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Henry the Emperor, pray for us.

Saint Cunegunda, pray for us.

 

Saint John Gualbert: Reconciling Enemies One Unto The Other

Although I had hoped to have a new article ready for publication today, the work that went into esterday's commentary precluded its completion. 

Thus it is that I offer a revised reflection on the holy life and work of Saint John Gualbert that was written some years ago now and has not been offered again since 2014.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint John Gualbert, pray for us.

Saints Nabor and Felix, pray for us.

The West Was Made Great By The Catholic Faith, Nothing Else

Although work on my commentary about the Charlie Gard tragedy will be completed later today (or, more likely, by this time tomorrow morning), I did take time yesterday into the overnight hours early this morning to provide a brief commentary about President Donald John Trump’s address in Krasinski Square in Warsaw, Poland.

The President’s address is being hailed by many “conservatives.” Despite touching on undeniably important themes, however, the speech spoke about God and faith in generic terms. Not once was there any mention of the Holy Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ or to the Catholic Faith as the very foundation of Poland. (Please don’t waste your time writing to me to say that the president mentioned “Saint John Paul II.” I reiterate: The Holy Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ and the words Catholic Church are not to be found in the president’s address of three days ago.)

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Veronica Giuliani, pray for us.

Saint Thomas More, pray for us.

Saint John Fisher, pray for us.

The Martyrs of Gorkum, pray for us.

Saint Maria Goretti, pray for us.

Perverse Crimes of Jorge's Perverse Religious Sect of Falsehood

[Midnight update on the Feast of Saints Cyril and Methodius: Although I started writing a commentary five days ago about the tragedy involving young Charlie Gard in England, events surrounding this innocent victim of the modern merchants of death-dealing Judeo-Masonic statism have been moving very rapidly. The Charlie Gard story demonstrates how the forces of Modernity in the world and Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism exist in symbiotic relationship where the latter is always deferential to the former. There are many aspects to this tragedy that need to be explored in depth, but I will not have the time to do so until Saturday, although I will probably need Sunday as well to complete the commentary. 

[In the meantime, of course, please pray for Charlie Gard and for his parents, who do not appear to be married to each other and who labor under the misapprehensionn that "palliative care" could have been helpful for their son, as we pray in reparation for our own sins and those of the whole world that have helped to create a world where civil states and transnational bureaucracies are controlled by utterly godless, amoral monsters.

[Our Lady, Help of Christians, pray for us,

[Saints Cyril and Methodius, pray for us.]

This commentary will not discuss the lurid details of the news that broke yesterday concerning arrests made in the apartment of an importan ally of Jorge Mario Bergoglio in his mission to "accompany" unrpentant sinners who have no intention of reforming their lives. It is simply enough to note that the counterfeit church of conciliarism is pevesely false of its very nature.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.

Finding New Ways to Dismiss Papal Primacy

Bergoglio met with an “ecumenical” delegation of Orthodox clergymen a week ago today. This is but a brief effort to explain that, no matter the apparent conflicts du jour within the conciliar structures, there is more that unites the conciliar revolutionaries with each other than divides them. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. 

Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.

On the Feast of the Visitation: Magnificat

Today is the magnificent feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary to her cousin, Saint Elizabeth, and her preborn Divine Son’s preborn Precursor, Saint John the Baptist. This date, July 2, marks the end of the period of Our Lady’s Visitation, which began on April 2, lasting until the day after the octave day of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist. Our Lady’s perfect Charity for her cousin and her Divine Son’s Precursor should prompt us to perform the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy at all times, making sure as well to proclaim the Holy Name of Mary, she whom all generations are duty bound to call blessed, as the Mother of God who made possible our salvation by her perfect fiat to the will of God the Father at the Annunciation and who is the Queen of Heaven and on earth, the very Immaculate Conception who prays for us now and at the hour of our deaths.

The Fourth Sunday after Pentecost is commemorated at Holy Mass today.

I have completed the transcription work for my next article. Today will be spent completing my own text.

A blessed Feast of the Visitation of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary to you all.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Processus and Martinian, pray for us.
