All the Way to the Top

by Thomas A. Droleskey

About all you need to know concerning the wretched state of things in the Archdiocese of San Francisco during this time of conciliar captivity is that the people who attend Most Holy Redeemer Church have no problem with drag queens dressing up in hideous attire and receiving what purports to be Holy Communion, believing that those who were videotaping the "Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence" when they were present at conciliar "archbishop" George Niederauer's offering of the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service were the "disruptive" ones. This is from the mouth of the notorious pastor of what has become a den of the reaffirmation of people in perverse sins against the Sixth and Ninth Commandments, Father Stephen Meriwether:

SAN FRANCISCO (CNS) -- Reaction to San Francisco Archbishop George H. Niederauer giving Communion to two men in mock nuns' garb during an Oct. 7 Mass has been overblown, said the pastor of the church where the Mass was celebrated.

"It is most unfortunate this incident has clouded the fact the archbishop came to meet with his people and celebrate a beautiful and reverent Mass together -- and that is what really happened," said Father Stephen Meriwether, pastor of Most Holy Redeemer Parish.

"This incident has been blown way out of proportion," he told Catholic San Francisco, the archdiocesan newspaper.

Reaction has run the gamut from some who insist the "sisters" had set out to embarrass the church and the archbishop to others who felt the unannounced visitors who videotaped the Mass were more of an intrusion than the costumed men.

In a column written for the Oct. 19 issue of the archdiocesan newspaper but made public Oct. 11, Archbishop Niederauer apologized for giving Communion to "two strangely dressed persons," but said he did not realize they were members of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a group that has "long made a practice of mocking the Catholic Church."

He said he had never met members of the group that describes itself as "a leading-edge order of queer nuns" and "did not recognize who these people were when they approached me."

"I did not recognize either of them as wearing mock religious garb," he added.

Among those in the media who reacted to the situation was Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly, who said on his Oct. 14 broadcast that the men were "gay militants in bizarre dress" whose intent was to mock the Mass and Archbishop Niederauer.

Editor Phil Lawler of Catholic World News, an Internet news site, aimed his criticism at the archbishop. "They were not celebrants but demonstrators, and the archbishop should have known better when he visited Most Holy Redeemer," he wrote.

"Their attendance was intended to shock regular Massgoers and call attention to themselves," wrote Deacon Keith A. Fournier, editor-in-chief for Catholic Online, another Internet news portal.

"They intentionally came forward and placed themselves in the Communion line in order to receive the most holy Eucharist, the sacrament of the body and blood of Jesus Christ," he wrote.

"When a Catholic receives this sacrament, he or she attests to being in the full Communion of the Catholic Church," Deacon Fournier added.

In an interview, retired Father John Malloy, former pastor at SS. Peter and Paul Parish in San Francisco, asked what the church is going to do about allowing members of the group to take part in Communion.

"You can't keep people out of church but you can keep people away from the Eucharist and you can advise them and talk to them," he said.

The two members of the group who received Communion from the archbishop did not respond to e-mail requests from Catholic San Francisco to be interviewed.

But in a commentary posted on the group's Web site, "Sister Edith Myflesh," described as the "current abbess of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, said: "We are dismayed that a moment of genuine Communion during sacred worship is being twisted for political gain by the forces of hatred and dissension."

"The service was an opportunity to welcome the new archbishop of San Francisco," the commentary said. "While at Mass the sisters joined other parishioners in respectful and sincere worship."

Father Meriwether told Catholic San Francisco that parishioners have told him it did not appear the two "sisters" "were trying to grandstand at all." Parishioners were, however, "upset by the people roaming around filming and taking pictures," he said.

Members of the Most Holy Redeemer community stressed that the Oct. 7 Mass was prayerful and that the two "sisters" were respectful. People who were there said the "sisters" knelt in a back pew after receiving Communion.

To David Differding, co-chair of the parish liturgy council and master of ceremonies at the Oct. 7 liturgy, the critics "can't get over the fact that God created gay people. That's my impression. They want to put up every roadblock they can."

Jesuit Father Donal Godfrey, one of the Mass concelebrants, said the way the two men were dressed was "disrespectful to religious sisters," but he said he felt "it probably wasn't their intention (to offend.) They knelt in all the right places. They stood in all the right places. Except for the way they were dressed, they weren't doing anything disrespectful."

"I thought it was disrespectful for somebody to go to another church with the intention of filming it," he added, "without asking the pastor permission to do that and, second, with the intention of using that in a hostile way, without having a conversation first with the pastor. On the face of it, they were out to get the archbishop."

Asked about reaction he had received, Archbishop Niederauer expressed concern about the impact of Web logs, or blogs.

"The blogosphere is a kind of dangerous, endless recess in a global schoolyard," he said, "where the bullies with the biggest bullhorns can shout whatever they want." San Francisco Archbishop giving Communion to 'nuns' overblown


That George Niederauer or Stephen Meriwether are considered to be fit enough to serve in the conciliar positions they hold while seeking to shift the blame on those who were documenting a sacrilegious event taking place in a Catholic Church, although in conciliar captivity at present, rather than condemning the culture of perversity, which has reaffirmed so many countless numbers of souls in lives of Mortal Sin, that has been permitted to flower throughout the Archdiocese of San Francisco. This atmosphere of perversity gives rise to self-serving fairy tales in which a layman, who is in charge of "liturgical planning," can blaspheme God by saying He wills that people to be "born" into lives of perversity. Homosexual and lesbian behavior is learned. It is acquired. Homosexuals and lesbians recruit others to join their colonizing cause, which is why it is important for them to propagandize their mental sickness in the curricula of both public and parochial schools that are in the control of the conciliar revolutionaries at the present time.

Just as is the case with Communists and fascists and all other ideologues, including the jingoists naturalistic nationalists, "activists" in the Homosexual Collective must use slogans to disparage those who exercise the Spiritual Works of Mercy to admonish them about their sins as "haters" who are "mean-spirited" and "intolerant" and "judgmental" and just plain "homophobic."

Slogans are designed to stop people dead in their tracks. It is a form of verbal intimidation. The French Revolutionaries used slogans (liberty, equality, fraternity) to reinforce their efforts to create and anti-Theistic social order. The Bolshevik Revolutionaries used all manner of slogans to build the "new socialist man." Adolf Hitler spread the mythologies of Arian supremacy to build support for his Third Reich. Apologists for the Iraq War at present like to dismiss opponents of the war as "soft on terrorism" or "unpatriotic. Zionists love to throw around the slogan "anti-Semitism" to tar and feather anyone who dares to criticize the policies of the State of Israel or who points out the Judeo-Masonic origins of the United States of America or who insists that the Catholic Church has a Divinely-instituted mission to seek the conversion of all people, including Jews, to the her maternal bosom, outside of which there is no salvation. Slogans must be denounced for being nothing other than the cheap trick of shallow people who want to reaffirm themselves in their own delusional beliefs and/or sinful practices.

Like the not-so-saintly Karol Wojtyla, who some believe appeared in flames on the second anniversary of his death (a rather telling commentary), Joseph Ratzinger tolerates "bishops" who have fostered atmosphere of perversity in their dioceses. Indeed, Ratzinger continues to appoint and to promote these men. His "Secretary of State," Tarcisio Bertone, one of the chief deconstructors of the Third Secret of Fatima, actually praised these spiritually malevolent men for the way in which they and their chancery factotums had sought to browbeat and intimidate and victimize for a second and a third and a fourth and fortieth time the people and their families who were the victims of the perverted priests they enabled and protected and promoted year after year after year. The alleged defender of "Tradition," whose Pontifical Council for Promoting the Unity of Christians has just praised the heretical Mennonites, of all people, as instruments of "peace" (!), sits back and plays his piano as his many of his "bishops," each of remains free to offend Our Lord and to harm the souls for whom He shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross.

Just look at George Niederauer's protestations quoted above. Has this homosexualist,. that is, a supporter of the Homosexual Collective, ever condemned each perverse act as a Mortal Sin? Has he ever said that those engaged in such acts have committed one of the four sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance. Has he ever once acknowledged that it is offensive to God Himself for people steeped in unrepentant sins of perversity to celebrate their filthy lives publicly? Has he expressed even one little bit of outrage over the September 16, 2007, announcement in the parish bulletin of Most Holy Redeemer Church that announced the birth of babies, conceived by the illicit, immortal, evil means of in vitro fertilization, to two men steeped in the promotion of perversity?

No. George Niederauer is incapable of criticizing sodomy and those who practice it. Incapable. He demonstrates constantly how "sensitive" and "compassionate" he is for those who violate the law of God and who encourage others to do so. George Niederauer knows nothing of the sensus Catholicus. If had any one scintilla of the sensus Catholicus he would have removed Father Steven Meriwether immediately upon his installation as the conciliar "archbishop" of San Francisco on February 15, 2006. Why do this, however. Niederauer's classmate and a co-owner of their beach house in Manhattan Beach, William "Let's do away with Limbo" Levada, trusted Meriwether despite all of the promotion and celebration of perversity that has taken place at Most Holy Redeemer Church over the years. No need for Niederauer to change anything, right? Father Steven Meriwether remains in power, unbent over the evil that he has permitted his parish to promote over the years, even going so far as to term the drag queen transvestites of the "Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence" as sisters!

Mr. Maurice Healy, the Communications Director for the Archdiocese of San Francisco, has not yet responded to my direct question to him, posed over the telephone on Thursday evening, October 11, 2007, as to why Meriwether remains in power after the bulletin announcement noted above. As far as is known (and she wrote on October 15, 2007, to say that she would away from her home for a week), Mrs. Randy Engel has received no response to the letter she e-mailed to the lay administrator of Most Holy Redeemer about this matter, copying also Niederauer and Levada and Niederauer's secretary:

Dear Mr. Rosel – As part of an on-going dialogue, I was looking at your Church Bulletin dated September 16, 2007, and I noticed the following announcement:


“Congratulations to parishioners James Donaher and Joel Alegria on the birth of twins Isabella and Ian, whom we look forward to baptizing soon during our Sunday Liturgy.”


A web-search on these two men shows that Joel Jaime Alegria & James Edward Donaher, were “married” during Wedstock from February 12 - March 11, 2004, in San Francisco.


A picture of Joel Alegria appears in the San Francisco Chronicle of June 23, 2007 titled “Volunteers construct pink triangle for Gay Pride weekend” indicating Joel is a “gay’ activist.  


Since both James and Joel are male, I must presume that neither gave “birth” to the twins, Isabella and Ian. This would mean that the twins were produced by IVF or by the impregnation of a female by either James or Joel neither of whom were married to said female. These actions are condemned by God’s law and that condemnation is reflected in Church law.


Can you tell me why congratulations are in order?  And how it is possible that a public baptism of two infants housed with two male homosexuals can take place at MHR Parish?  


Sincerely, Randy Engel

This is the level of corruption that was tolerated for over twenty-six years by Karol Wojtyla. This is the level of corruption that is tolerated so blithely by Joseph Ratzinger and Tarcisio Bertone and William Levada. This corruption reaches all the way to the top, to the Vatican in conciliar captivity, which is attempting to "damage control" at the present time following the arrest of "Monsignor" Tommaso Stenico, 60, who is a director of one of three offices within the conciliar Congregation for the Clergy, as he was seeking the perverse "favors" of another man, claiming that perverse acts were not sinful. An isolated case? No colony of perverts who have replicated themselves in the Vatican in exactly the same manner as have their like-minded brethern in chancery offices in the United States of America and around the world?

Although I do not know the answer to this question, it would be interesting to know if Monsignor Stenico was working in the Congregation for the Clergy in 1997 when the late Father John A. Hardon, S.J., brought a priest who had been abused by the corrupt Daniel Leo Ryan, the conciliar "bishop" of Springfield, Illinois, from 1983 until 1999, to a private meeting in Rome with the Congregation's prefect at the time, yes, that other great "friend of Tradition," Dario Castrillon "Cardinal Hoyos, who did nothing to remove Ryan. Nothing. Perhaps it is men such as Stenico who are responsible for doing nothing when lay people have sent over reams of evidence to the conciliar Vatican officials in Rome demonstrating the rot of doctrinal and moral corruption in the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism.

As has been noted in countless articles on this site--and by so many other sources, both written and electronic, over the years of the conciliar apostasy, untold numbers of souls have been harmed by the errors and heresies and novelties and sacrileges of conciliarism. Yes, the scandals of perversion antedate conciliarism. Granted. Cover-ups were conducted in the years before conciliarism. Absolutely. Victims were browbeaten in those days. They sure were. (See: The Rite of Sodomy.)  Clericalism (the belief that bishops and priests can no do wrong and it is those who question them even privately who are guilty of anticlericalism, a very neat trick of intimidation and browbeating in and of itself that helped to scandalize so many victims of perverted priests in the past and drove so many people out of the Church and away from the sacraments) trumped the sensus Catholicus in many cases in the years before conciliarism. An urgent desire to protect "one's own" trumped  the sensus Catholicus in many other cases.

The existence of these scandals before conciliarism, far from excusing the conciliar revolutionaries, helped to pave the way for conciliarism. After all, those steeped in lives of unrepentant perversity do not want to be reminded by the Collects contained in the Propers of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition of their own sinfulness or of the fact that it is possible to lose one's immortal soul for all eternity. This could be, according to the evidence amassed by Mrs. Engel and others, why Giovanni Montini/Paul VI was so intent on using the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service as a means of "softening" or omitting altogether most references to sin and eternal damnation.

Remember, the very words of the 1997 edition of the General Instruction to the Roman Missal demonstrates the conciliarists' rejection of the necessity of outward acts of penance, consigning this necessity for our interior life to "another age in the history of the Church:"

The same awareness of the present state of the world also influenced the use of texts from very ancient tradition. It seemed that this cherished treasure would not be harmed if some phrases were changed so that the style of language would be more in accord with the language of modern theology and would faithfully reflect the actual state of the Church's discipline. Thus there have been changes of some expressions bearing on the evaluation and use of the good things of the earth and of allusions to a particular form of outward penance belonging to another age in the history of the Church. (Paragraph 15, General Instruction to the Roman Missal.)


One of the reasons that Our Lady's Fatima Message has been so under attack by the conciliar revolutionaries is that the Mother of God spoke of the necessity of doing penance for the conversion of sinners. Those who are steeped in sins, whether of apostasy (promoting beliefs that have been anathematized by the Catholic Church, such as the very unchanging nature of dogmatic truth, something that is rejected by Joseph Ratzinger and William Levada, among so many others) or of perversion against the Sixth and Ninth Commandments, do not want to be reminded of their sinfulness and they do not anyone performing acts of penance to pray for their conversion. The reaction of the perverts in San Francisco to the criticism leveled at George Niederauer for distributing what purports to be Holy Communion, which Niederauer is supposed to believe is the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ and is thus not to be given to those known to living lives of Moral Sin (no matter how they are dressed), in the Novus Ordo service at Most Holy Redeemer Church on October 7, 2007, the Feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, is itself a sufficient proof of how angry unrepentant sinners become when their sins are criticized and their reprehensible conduct is deplored.

Our Lord implored Saint Mary Magdalen, when He caught her in the act of adultery, a natural sin against the Sixth Commandment, to "Go, and sin no more." He did not reaffirm her in her sins. He did not condemn her, understanding the weakness of the flesh. However, he did not tell her to celebrate her sins publicly or to promote them among others or to continue in her sins:

And Jesus went unto mount Olivet. And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came to him, and sitting down he taught them. And the scribes and the Pharisees bring unto him a woman taken in adultery: and they set her in the midst, And said to him: Master, this woman was even now taken in adultery. 5 Now Moses in the law commanded us to stone such a one. But what sayest thou?

And this they said tempting him, that they might accuse him. But Jesus bowing himself down, wrote with his finger on the ground. When therefore they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said to them: He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again stooping down, he wrote on the ground. But they hearing this, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest. And Jesus alone remained, and the woman standing in the midst. Then Jesus lifting up himself, said to her: Woman, where are they that accused thee? Hath no man condemned thee?

Who said: No man, Lord. And Jesus said: Neither will I condemn thee. Go, and now sin no more. (John 8: 1-11)


Authentic compassion, that of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, never reaffirms anyone at any time for any reason in his persistence in a life of sin, which is what caused Him to suffer unspeakable torture during His Passion and Death to redeem us and what caused His Most Blessed Mother's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart to be thrust through and through with Seven Swords of Sorrow as prophesied by the aged Simeon at her Purification in the Temple. Men such as Niederauer and Meriwether do not have in their minds the eternal good of the souls entrusted to them for their pastoral care. They are hirelings, members of a false sect that demonstrates the fruit of its doctrinal apostasies and liturgical abominations on a daily basis. Joined by the likes of the retired conciliar "archbishop of Washington, D.C., the pervert friendly and Allah-invoking Theodore "Cardinal" McCarrick, who reaffirmed his belief recently that Catholics in public life who support the surgical slicing and dicing of innocent preborn babies in their mothers' wombs, should not be denied what purports to be Holy Communion at the Novus Ordo service, in mocking God as they wallow in the precepts and liturgical practices of a false, synthetic religion that has harmed so many souls and thus contributed to decay in society-at-large.

We have been warned by so many genuine mystics about these times. One of these mystics was Saint Nilus, a disciple and defender of Saint John Chrysostom, who lived in Fifth Century. His warning about these times should remind those who say that "God would never permit" such things to happen that God has been warning us throughout the history of the Church that these things (antipopes, sacrilege, apostasy) would indeed happen:

After the year 1900, toward the middle of the 20th century, the people of that time will become unrecognizable.  When the time for the advent of the Antichrist approaches, people's minds will grown cloudy from carnal passions, and dishonor and lawlessness will grow stronger.  Then the world will become unrecognizable.  People's appearances will change, and it will be impossible to distinguish men from women due to their shamelessness in dress and style of hair.  These people will be cruel and will be like wild animals because of the temptations of Antichrist.  These will be no respect for parents and elders, love will disappear, and Christian pastors, bishops, and priests will become vain men, completely failing to distinguish the righthand way from the left.  At that time the morals and traditions of Christians and the Church will change.  People will abandon modesty, and dissipation will reign.  Falsehood and greed will attain great proportions, and woe to those who pile up treasures.  Lust, adultery, homosexuality, secret deeds and murder will rule in society.

At that future time, due to the power of such great crimes and licentiousness, people will be deprived of the grace of the Holy Ghost, which they received in Holy Baptism, and equally of remorse.

The Churches of God will be deprived of God-fearing and pious pastors, and woe to Christians remaining in the world at that time; they will completely lose their faith because they will lack the opportunity of seeing the light of knowledge from anyone at all.  Then they will separate themselves out of the world in holy refuges in search of lightening their spiritual sufferings, but everywhere they will meet obstacles and constraints.  And all this will result from the fact that the Antichrist wants to be Lord over everything and become ruler of the whole universe, and he will produce miracles and fantastic signs.  He will also give depraved wisdom to an unhappy man so that he will discover a way by which one may can carry on a conversation with another from one end of the earth to the other.  At that time men will also fly through the air like birds and descend to the bottom of the sea like fish.  And when they have achieved all this, these unhappy people will spend their lives in comfort without knowing, poor souls, that it is deceit of the Antichrist.  And the impious one! -- he will so complete science with vanity, that it will go off the right path and lead people to lose faith in the existence of God in these hypostases.

Then the All-good God will see the downfall of the human race and will shorten the days for the sake of those few who are being saved, because the enemy wants to lead even the chosen into temptation, if that is possible... then the sword of chastisement will suddenly appear and kill the perverter and his servants.

The antidote to the corruption--doctrinal, liturgical and moral--that goes all the way to the top of the counterfeit church of conciliarism is by extricating ourselves from any and all attachment to conciliarism and to its false shepherds, living penitentially in the Catholic catacombs as the consecrated slaves of the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, offering to her all of prayers and sufferings and penances and mortifications and humiliations so that they can be given by her to the Most Sacred Heart of her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. We must be especially assiduous about praying the family Rosary each day on our knees to beg Our Lady for the graces that we need to save our own souls and to try to plant the seeds for the conversion of the souls of others.

Father Hugh Thwaites, S.J., wrote the following in his booklet Our Glorious Faith and How to Lose It:

Without delay now, I want to talk about my theme. It seems to me that a principal cause of the loss of faith is the dropping off in the practice of the family rosary.

In Austria, after World War II, there was a complete collapse of vocations. One year, apparently, no one at all entered the seminaries. So the bishops held a synod, to find out how it could be that this had happened. The conclusion they reached was that the war had so disrupted family life that the centuries-old practice of the rosary in the home had stopped, and had just not started up again. This is my experience, too; when the rosary goes, the faith soon collapses.

I remember someone telling me of a friend of his, a great Catholic, the pillar of the parish, whose children had all lapsed, one after the other. They had all fallen away from the sacraments and from attending Mass. So I said to him, "I wouldn't mind betting that your friend had been brought up to recite the family rosary when he was a boy, and that his children haven't." The next time I saw him, he said that this was indeed true. His friend had recited the family rosary at home when he was a boy, and when he had got married and started his own family they all said the rosary. But then, one evening when they were about to start the rosary, one of the children switched on the television, and that was that. The custom of the family rosary was dropped, and in due course they gave up the practice of the faith.

After this life, that one unrebuked action will be seen to have affected the eternity of many people. God sent His Mother to Fatima to tell us that we had to say the rosary every day. There were no other prayers She asked us to say. Accordingly, we should do what She asked.

A layman I met once who did not say his rosary told me that he read the breviary every day. That is fine. It is what priests have to do. It is the prayer of the Church. So in a way it is better than the rosary. But it is not what Our Lady asked for. She asked for the rosary. If a mother sends her child to the shop for a bottle of milk, and he comes back instead with ice cream, is she pleased? In a way, ice cream is better than milk, but it is not what she asked for.

In that most holy home at Nazareth, do you think that Our Lady had to ask for anything twice? If we want in any way to be like Jesus, we must do what His Mother asks. If we do not, can we expect things to go right? We cannot with impunity disobey the Mother of God. She knows better than we the dangers of this spiritual warfare. She sees more clearly than we do the dangers that beset us. She warns us: You must say your rosary every day.

If the garage mechanic warns you that your car needs repairing or else it will break down, surely you would heed that warning. If the gas gauge warns you that you need more gas, do you do nothing about it? And if Our Lady comes to Fatima and tells us, not just once but six times, that we must say the rosary every day, do we disregard that warning? If we do, we have only ourselves to blame when we find that our children have lapsed from the faith.

I know that Fatima is only a private revelation, but nevertheless the Church has endorsed it, and that makes it rash for us to disregard it. If the Church informs us that Our Lady really did come to Fatima and tell us these things, then we must hearken to her words. It really seems to me that those Catholics who do not take Fatima seriously and say the rosary every day in their homes, are very akin to the Jews who laughed at Jeremiah. If God sends us His prophets and we do not take them seriously – well, we have the whole of the Old Testament to tell us what happens as a result. But at Fatima, God sent us, not His prophets, but His Immaculate Mother.

So I think that the abandonment of the family rosary is a main reason why so many Catholics have lost the faith. It seems to me that the Church of the future is going to consist solely of those families who have been faithful to the rosary. But there will be vast numbers of people whose families used to be Catholic.

In my work of going round visiting homes I have seen this conclusion borne out time and again. Homes can be transformed by starting the recitation of the daily rosary. I remember a woman telling me that she could not thank me enough for having nagged her into starting it; it had united her family as never before. And I remember another home where I called. There was a strange tension there: the children were silent and the wife seemed withdrawn, but the husband was willing to start the family rosary. When I called back again a couple of months later, the atmosphere was quite different. The children were chatty and the wife was friendly, and the husband walked down the road with me afterwards and said how amazing it was that the home was so much happier.

One reason, I think, why the daily rosary makes for a happy home, is this. From what some possessed people have said, and from what some of the saints have said, it seems certain that demons fear the rosary. It makes their hair stand on end, so to speak. Holy water certainly drives them out, but they come back again. The daily rosary drives them out and keeps them out. It is rather like living in an old house where there are mice everywhere. The only way to get rid of them is to bring cats. If you get a couple of cats, after a week or two there simply will not be any more mice. Mice fear the very smell of cats. And in a home where the rosary is said every day, after a time the demons realize they are impotent in front of Our Lady, and go elsewhere.

This must be one reason why, as they say, "the family that prays together stays together." In that home, utterly free of evil spirits, there is an atmosphere one does not find outside. In a demon-infested city like London, where I live, such a home is an oasis of God's grace, and people find a comfort and peace there which they enjoy greatly. We human beings are not meant to live in the company of demons, but with God and with the angels and saints in heaven.

So, as I see it, in this effort we are making to keep the faith and pass it on, the practice of the rosary is absolutely indispensable. Whatever else a person may do, even though they go to Mass every day, they still need to say the rosary in their home. It is the medicine our Mother has told us to take, to keep our faith strong and healthy.


Good advice, is it not? Indeed, essential advice, is it not?

Saint Bernadette Soubirous reported that all manner demons were growling and lurking about the Grotto of Massabielle during one of Our Lady's eighteen apparitions to her in 1858. Saint Bernadette wrote that all Our Lady had to do was to simply look in the direction of these demons and they were silenced and fled. Why do not we not promote her Fatima Message as the simple, Divinely-sent antidote the problems wrought by Modernity in the world Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism?

Today is the Feast of Saint John Cantius, that great Polish priest who served as professor of Sacred Scripture at the Academy of Krakow. Saint John Cantius was noted for his Charity and for the fact that he preserved his purity throughout his life. He would retire to a chapel after he taught each of his classes, spending much time in prayer before Our Lord in His Real Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament in the tabernacle. His example true Charity, which always wills the eternal good of others, and purity and deep and profound Eucharistic piety should inspire us to spend time with Our Lord in His Real Presence on a daily basis, where at all possible given the conditions of the Church and the duties of our own state-in-life, remembering that Our Lady and Saint Joseph and all of the angels and saints await us at the tabernacle to join with them in adoring the King of Kings Who wants to reign as the King of every human soul and of every nation on the face of this earth.

With total trust in Our Lady's maternal intercession and loving guidance, may our lives of penance help unto the effects of our own many sins, enabling us the more to serve as instruments of the conversion of all men, including those in positions of power in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, to the true Faith and to worshiping God as He must be worshiped in the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church by means of the fullness of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition.

This time of apostasy and betrayal will pass. Our Lady will manifest the Triumph of her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, whether now or at the end of time as the Mystical Passion and Death of her Divine Son's Mystical Body comes to a fulfillment in the Resurrection of the Mystical Body of Christ. Let us never lose confidence in Our Lady, who will one day deal with the demons of Modernity and Modernism the way she dealt with the demons in the Grotto of Massabielle, forever known since 1858 as the Grotto of Lourdes, where she said of herself "I am the Immaculate Conception."

Vivat Christus Rex. Viva Cristo Rey!

The Longer Version of the Saint Michael the Archangel Prayer, composed by Pope Leo XIII, 1888

O glorious Archangel Saint Michael, Prince of the heavenly host, be our defense in the terrible warfare which we carry on against principalities and powers, against the rulers of this world of darkness, spirits of evil.  Come to the aid of man, whom God created immortal, made in His own image and likeness, and redeemed at a great price from the tyranny of the devil.  Fight this day the battle of our Lord, together with  the holy angels, as already thou hast fought the leader of the proud angels, Lucifer, and his apostate host, who were powerless to resist thee, nor was there place for them any longer in heaven.  That cruel, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil or Satan who seduces the whole world, was cast into the abyss with his angels.  Behold this primeval enemy and slayer of men has taken courage.  Transformed into an angel of light, he wanders about with all the multitude of wicked spirits, invading the earth in order to blot out the Name of God and of His Christ, to seize upon, slay, and cast into eternal perdition, souls destined for the crown of eternal glory.  That wicked dragon pours out. as a most impure flood, the venom of his malice on men of depraved mind and corrupt heart, the spirit of lying, of impiety, of blasphemy, and the pestilent breath of impurity, and of every vice and iniquity.  These most crafty enemies have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the spouse of the Immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on Her most sacred possessions. In the Holy Place itself, where has been set up the See of the most holy Peter and the Chair of Truth for the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck the sheep may be scattered.  Arise then, O invincible Prince, bring help against the attacks of the lost spirits to the people of God, and give them the victory.  They venerate thee as their protector and patron; in thee holy Church glories as her defense against the malicious powers of hell; to thee has God entrusted the souls of men to be established in heavenly beatitude.  Oh, pray to the God of peace that He may put Satan under our feet, so far conquered that he may no longer be able to hold men in captivity and harm the Church.  Offer our prayers in the sight of the Most High, so that they may quickly conciliate the mercies of the Lord; and beating down the dragon, the ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, do thou again make him captive in the abyss, that he may no longer seduce the nations.  Amen.

Verse: Behold the Cross of the Lord; be scattered ye hostile powers.

Response: The Lion of the Tribe of Juda has conquered the root of David.

Verse: Let Thy mercies be upon us, O Lord.

Response: As we have hoped in Thee.

Verse: O Lord hear my prayer.

Response: And let my cry come unto Thee.

Verse: Let us pray.  O God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we call upon Thy holy Name, and as suppliants, we implore Thy clemency, that by the intercession of Mary, ever Virgin, immaculate and our Mother, and of the glorious Archangel Saint Michael, Thou wouldst deign to help us against Satan and all other unclean spirits, who wander about the world for the injury of the human race and the ruin of our souls. 

Response:  Amen.
