Flee From the Abomination of Desolation

by Thomas A. Droleskey

At that time, Jesus spoke to the multitudes this parable: At that time, Jesus said to His disciples: When you shall see the abomination of desolation which was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (he that readeth, let him understand:) then they that are in Judea, let them flee to the mountains and he that is on the housetop, let him not come down to take anything out of his house and he that is in the field, let him not go back to take his coat. (Matthew 24: 15-17.)


The Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service is the abomination of desolation referred to by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in the Gospel read in the Mass yesterday, Sunday, November 25, 2012, for the Twenty-sixth and Last Sunday after Pentecost this year from which we must flee.

One travesty, whether "approved" by the lords of concilairism or the result of "unapproved" improvisation or adaptation made by a presbyter or a parish's "liturgical planning" committee, has been committed in the name of Catholic worship. Many of these travesties were recounted in my own G. I. R. M. Warfare while others have been discussed on this site. Scores upon scores of books and articles written by others have discussed the many sacrileges and blasphemies that have been committed in in the context of the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service, starting with the travesties represented by the so-called "papal" liturgies that have been held in various arenas around the world.

These travesties have no precedent in the history of the Catholic Church. None. Far from attracting Protestants and other non-Catholics to the conciliar structures, such spectacles have driven countless numbers of Catholics out of the Faith altogether and into the waiting arms of various Protestant evangelical or fundamentalist sects. The conciliar revolutionaries cannot admit that this is so. Having lost the sensus Catholicus little by little over the course of the past forty-four years since the advent of the abominable Novus Ordo service on Sunday, November 30, 1969, the revolutionaries in the Vatican and in diocesan chancery offices under conciliar control have lost the sense of the sacred and have convinced themselves that they are "glorifying" God in putative "liturgies" that are abominations within the mother of all abominations, the Novus Ordo itself. 

Frequent are the instances in which the "ordinary form" of the "one" "Roman Rite" in the counterfeit church of conciliarism is festooned with balloons and dancers and "rock" "music" (or "folk" music) and all manner of improvised "jokes" told at the beginning of the service as the "presider" either begins or ends the service. You see, there is "room" in the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service for such improvisations to be made as its very governing "rites" permit the "presider" to address the "Pilgrim People of God" in a brief  manner before it begins and to issue a farewell message or two upon their departure from this exercise in community self-congratulations, replete with noise and endless distractions in order to fulfill the "Second" Vatican Council's mandate that the faithful be able to the full, "active and conscious" participation" in "liturgical celebrations" (cf. Sacrosanctum Concilium, November 1, 1963, Number 14).

The Mass, however, is no joking matter. 

A true offering of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the unbloody re-presentation of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's Sacrifice to the Father in Spirit and in Truth in atonement for our sins. Our Blessed Mother, who stood so valiantly by the foot of her Divine Son's Most Holy Cross as the Fifth Sword of Sorrow pierced her Immaculate Heart, was not waving balloons. She was not clapping her hands. She was not dressed in pants or short sleeves. She was not conversing with Saint Mary Magdalene or Saint John the Evangelist. There were no strobe lights or mariachis or bongo drums or steel guitars. Calvary was solemn. The earth quaked as Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ commended His spirit into the hands of His Co-Equal and Co-Eternal Father in Heaven, thus signifying the end of the Mosaic Covenant as the curtain in the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.

Pope Pius XII noted in his first encyclical letter, Summi Pontificatus, October 10, 1939, that there was darkness over the whole earth when Our Lord was Crucified to redeem us:

The Holy Gospel narrates that when Jesus was crucified "there was darkness over the whole earth" (Matthew xxvii. 45); a terrifying symbol of what happened and what still happens spiritually wherever incredulity, blind and proud of itself, has succeeded in excluding Christ from modern life, especially from public life, and has undermined faith in God as well as faith in Christ. The consequence is that the moral values by which in other times public and private conduct was gauged have fallen into disuse; and the much vaunted civilization of society, which has made ever more rapid progress, withdrawing man, the family and the State from the beneficent and regenerating effects of the idea of God and the teaching of the Church, has caused to reappear, in regions in which for many centuries shone the splendors of Christian civilization, in a manner ever clearer, ever more distinct, ever more distressing, the signs of a corrupt and corrupting paganism: "There was darkness when they crucified Jesus" (Roman Breviary, Good Friday, Response Five).

Many perhaps, while abandoning the teaching of Christ, were not fully conscious of being led astray by a mirage of glittering phrases, which proclaimed such estrangement as an escape from the slavery in which they were before held; nor did they then foresee the bitter consequences of bartering the truth that sets free, for error which enslaves. They did not realize that, in renouncing the infinitely wise and paternal laws of God, and the unifying and elevating doctrines of Christ's love, they were resigning themselves to the whim of a poor, fickle human wisdom; they spoke of progress, when they were going back; of being raised, when they groveled; of arriving at man's estate, when they stooped to servility. They did not perceive the inability of all human effort to replace the law of Christ by anything equal to it; "they became vain in their thoughts" (Romans i. 21).

With the weakening of faith in God and in Jesus Christ, and the darkening in men's minds of the light of moral principles, there disappeared the indispensable foundation of the stability and quiet of that internal and external, private and public order, which alone can support and safeguard the prosperity of States. (Pope Pius XII, Summi Pontificatus, October 10, 1939.)


These words, although they were written to describe the situation of the world forty days after the outbreak of World War II, could be applied to the devastation that has been wrought upon the Catholic Faith and within the souls of hundreds of millions of Catholics as a result of the travesties engendered by the abomination that is the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo liturgically service, known these days most reverentially, as noted previously in this article, even in supposedly traditionally-minded conciliar circles as "the ordinary form of the Roman Rite."

Look at that second paragraph quoted above, highlighted in bold lettering. One can apply the language contained therein directly to the spirit of the conciliar revolutionaries as the planned the Novus Ordo. The likes of Annibale Bugnini and Ferdinando Antonelli did seek to use a "mirage of glittering phrases" to estrange Catholics from the true Roman Rite of the Catholic Church, claiming that they were "liberating" the liturgy from an "enslavement" to rites and phrases and even doctrines that had become "anachronistic."


What happens on a daily basis in conciliar-held Catholic church after another, no matter how "conservative" or even "traditionally-minded" the pastor or curate may be, remains what it has been from its inception: a mockery of what was alleged to be (but thanks be to the Mercy of God was not) the unbloody re-presentation of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's offering of Himself to His Co-Eternal and Co-Equal Father in Spirit in and in Truth in atonement for our sins. No "abuse" that takes place in a staging on the conciliar liturgical service can be said to be an "aberration" as each and every instance of "unapproved" improvisations in its staging is but a natural expression of the perverse spirit of the Novus Ordo itself that views the Catholic "past" as anachronistic. The Novus Ordo service was designed to advance the agenda of false ecumenism so as to make what purported to be the "Catholic" liturgy more palatable to Protestants, something that Annibale Bugnini himself admitted in justifying the original alteration of the Good Friday orations:

In the ecumenical climate of Vatican II, some expressions in the Orationes sollemnes of the Good Friday service had a bad ring to them. There were urgent requests to tone down some of the wording.  It is always unpleasant to have to alter venerable texts that for centuries have effectively nourished Christian devotion and have about them the spiritual fragrance of the heroic age of the Church's beginnings. Above all, it is difficult to revise literary masterpieces that are unsurpassed for their pithy form. It was nevertheless thought necessary to face up to the task, lest anyone find reason for spiritual discomfort in the prayer of the Church. The revisions, limited to what was absolutely necessary, were prepared by study group l8 bis. In Intercession 1: "For the Church," the phrase subiciens ei principatus et potestates ("subjecting principalities and powers to it [the Church]") was omitted: even though this was inspired by what St. Paul says about the "angelic powers" (Col. 2:15), it could be misinterpreted as referring to a temporal role which the Church did indeed have in other periods of history but which is anachronistic today.  (Quoted by Michael Davies in The Reign of Christ the King.)


Anachronistic? Says who?

Consider what Pope Pius XI explained was the permanently binding nature of the reiteration of Catholic social teaching by our true popes of the Nineteenth and early-Twentieth Centuries:

Many believe in or claim that they believe in and hold fast to Catholic doctrine on such questions as social authority, the right of owning private property, on the relations between capital and labor, on the rights of the laboring man, on the relations between Church and State, religion and country, on the relations between the different social classes, on international relations, on the rights of the Holy See and the prerogatives of the Roman Pontiff and the Episcopate, on the social rights of Jesus Christ, Who is the Creator, Redeemer, and Lord not only of individuals but of nations. In spite of these protestations, they speak, write, and, what is more, act as if it were not necessary any longer to follow, or that they did not remain still in full force, the teachings and solemn pronouncements which may be found in so many documents of the Holy See, and particularly in those written by Leo XIII, Pius X, and Benedict XV.

There is a species of moral, legal, and social modernism which We condemn, no less decidedly than We condemn theological modernism.

It is necessary ever to keep in mind these teachings and pronouncements which We have made; it is no less necessary to reawaken that spirit of faith, of supernatural love, and of Christian discipline which alone can bring to these principles correct understanding, and can lead to their observance. This is particularly important in the case of youth, and especially those who aspire to the priesthood, so that in the almost universal confusion in which we live they at least, as the Apostle writes, will not be "tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine by the wickedness of men, by cunning craftiness, by which they lie in wait to deceive." (Ephesians iv, 14) (Pope Pius XI, Ubi Arcano Dei Consilio, December 23, 1922.)

Why should the conciliar revolutionaries such as Annibale Bugnini have had any more regard for the binding nature of authentic Catholic social teaching than they had for these words of Pope Saint Pius V that were contained in his Papal Bull Quo Primum, issued on July 14, 1570, which explained the permanent nature of the Missal for the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church that he was promulgating?

Therefore, no one whosoever is permitted to alter this notice of Our permission, statute, ordinance, command, precept, grant, indult, declaration, will, decree, and prohibition. Should know that he will incur the wrath of Almighty God and of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul. (Pope Saint Pius V, Quo Primum, July 14, 1570, which is printed in every traditional Missal of the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church.)


As the quintessence of rationalists, the conciliar revolutionaries have found various sophistic devices, including Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI's "hermeneutic of continuity," to wipe away any part of the Catholic "past" that they found "anachronistic." They have thus dispensed with most references to miracles wrought by various saints and to other miraculous events in their lives, including the miracle of angels moving the body of Saint Catherine of Alexandria, whose feast was commemorated yesterday, the Twenty-sixth and Last Sunday after Pentecost, from Alexandria, Egypt, where she had been martyred, to Mount Sinai, where it reposes until this very day.

Just look at the contrast between the Collect of yesterday's commemorated feast of Saint Catherine of Alexandria and consider the fact that "Opening Prayer" for the "optional memorial" in the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service is the prayer found in the Common for Martyrs that makes no specific reference to Saint Catherine of Alexandria at all:


O God, Who didst give the law to Moses on the summit of Mount Sinai and by means of Thy holy angels didst miraculously place there the body of blessed Catherine, Thy virgin and martyr, grant we beseech Thee, that, by her merits and intercession, we may be able to come unto the mountain which is Christ.

This prayer accepts as a fact that the body of Saint Catherine of Alexandria, martyred for her clear witness to the Faith, was transported by angels to Mount Sinai. Some "scholars" contend that Saint Catherine of Alexandria never existed. Is it beyond the power of God to send angels to transport the body of one of His holy martyrs by means of His angels? Why is there a bias against believing in the omnipotence of God? A Catholic who has been given the grace to have a serene and childlike Faith will not be surprised to see in eternity, please God he or she dies in a state of Sanctifying Grace, that the supposed "legends" that lack "scholarly evidence" are indeed factual and marvelous proofs of how God has chosen to confound His prideful creatures by His power and glory.

Although Father F. X. Lasance, the editor of the New Roman Missal, was himself skeptical of the story of Saint Catherine of Alexandria, here is what is contained in the Saint Andrew Daily Missal, which contains an excerpt from the Roman Breviary:


"The illustrious virgin Catherine," says the Roman breviary, "was born at Alexandria. Having from youth combined the study of the liberal arts with the ardour of faith, she soon rose to high perfection both in doctrine and in holiness, and at the age of eighteen surpassed the most learned. She rebuked the Emperor Maximian for tormenting the Christians, and he, filled with admiration for her learning, assembled from all parts the most learned men, to bring her over from the faith of Jesus to the worship of idols. The contrary happened, for several were converted to Christianity by the cogency of her arguments.

"Maximian then ordered her to be scourged with rods and with whips weighted with lead. Then he had her tied to wheels armed with sharp swords. But the machine broke down and the tyrant caused her to be beheaded. She died about A.D. 310. She is one of the fourteen Auxiliary Saints. Christian philosophers, scholars, orators and lawyers honour her as their patroness."

Mount Sinai, where the body of Saint Catherine was carried by angels, is also the place where God's ministering angels brought His law to Moses. Let us with the Church invoke the intercession of Saint Catherine so that we may reach Jesus, the law-giver of our souls. (As found in the Saint Andrew Daily Missal.)

Holy Mother Church issued the Breviary under the guidance of the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost. Was she wrongly guided to do so? The rational man of Modernity and Modernism thinks so. Catholics know that this is impossible.

The abomination of all desolation that is the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service incorporated many of the same revolutionary features that some priests in Europe were implementing in the aftermath of World War II, something that prompted Pope Pius XII to issue an encyclical letter, Mediator Dei, November 20, 1947, that condemned such innovations in no uncertain terms:

The Church is without question a living organism, and as an organism, in respect of the sacred liturgy also, she grows, matures, develops, adapts and accommodates herself to temporal needs and circumstances, provided only that the integrity of her doctrine be safeguarded. This notwithstanding, the temerity and daring of those who introduce novel liturgical practices, or call for the revival of obsolete rites out of harmony with prevailing laws and rubrics, deserve severe reproof. It has pained Us grievously to note, Venerable Brethren, that such innovations are actually being introduced, not merely in minor details but in matters of major importance as well. We instance, in point of fact, those who make use of the vernacular in the celebration of the august eucharistic sacrifice; those who transfer certain feast-days -- which have been appointed and established after mature deliberation -- to other dates; those, finally, who delete from the prayer books approved for public use the sacred texts of the Old Testament, deeming them little suited and inopportune for modern times.

The use of the Latin language, customary in a considerable portion of the Church, is a manifest and beautiful sign of unity, as well as an effective antidote for any corruption of doctrinal truth. In spite of this, the use of the mother tongue in connection with several of the rites may be of much advantage to the people. But the Apostolic See alone is empowered to grant this permission. It is forbidden, therefore, to take any action whatever of this nature without having requested and obtained such consent, since the sacred liturgy, as We have said, is entirely subject to the discretion and approval of the Holy See.

The same reasoning holds in the case of some persons who are bent on the restoration of all the ancient rites and ceremonies indiscriminately. The liturgy of the early ages is most certainly worthy of all veneration. But ancient usage must not be esteemed more suitable and proper, either in its own right or in its significance for later times and new situations, on the simple ground that it carries the savor and aroma of antiquity. The more recent liturgical rites likewise deserve reverence and respect. They, too, owe their inspiration to the Holy Spirit, who assists the Church in every age even to the consummation of the world. They are equally the resources used by the majestic Spouse of Jesus Christ to promote and procure the sanctity of man.

Assuredly it is a wise and most laudable thing to return in spirit and affection to the sources of the sacred liturgy. For research in this field of study, by tracing it back to its origins, contributes valuable assistance towards a more thorough and careful investigation of the significance of feast-days, and of the meaning of the texts and sacred ceremonies employed on their occasion. But it is neither wise nor laudable to reduce everything to antiquity by every possible device. Thus, to cite some instances, one would be straying from the straight path were he to wish the altar restored to its primitive table form; were he to want black excluded as a color for the liturgical vestments; were he to forbid the use of sacred images and statues in Churches; were he to order the crucifix so designed that the divine Redeemer's body shows no trace of His cruel sufferings; and lastly were he to disdain and reject polyphonic music or singing in parts, even where it conforms to regulations issued by the Holy See.

Clearly no sincere Catholic can refuse to accept the formulation of Christian doctrine more recently elaborated and proclaimed as dogmas by the Church, under the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit with abundant fruit for souls, because it pleases him to hark back to the old formulas. No more can any Catholic in his right senses repudiate existing legislation of the Church to revert to prescriptions based on the earliest sources of canon law. Just as obviously unwise and mistaken is the zeal of one who in matters liturgical would go back to the rites and usage of antiquity, discarding the new patterns introduced by disposition of divine Providence to meet the changes of circumstances and situation.

This way of acting bids fair to revive the exaggerated and senseless antiquarianism to which the illegal Council of Pistoia gave rise. It likewise attempts to reinstate a series of errors which were responsible for the calling of that meeting as well as for those resulting from it, with grievous harm to souls, and which the Church, the ever watchful guardian of the "deposit of faith" committed to her charge by her divine Founder, had every right and reason to condemn. For perverse designs and ventures of this sort tend to paralyze and weaken that process of sanctification by which the sacred liturgy directs the sons of adoption to their Heavenly Father of their souls' salvation. (Pope Pius XII, Mediator Dei, November 20, 1947.)


"For perverse designs and ventures of this sort tend to paralyze and weaken that process of sanctification by which the sacred liturgy directs the sons of adoption to their Heavenly Father of their souls' salvation." Anyone who cannot see that this one sentence describes the effects of the innovations of the abomination that is the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service is not being intellectually honest. The Novus Ordo service is of its very nature as much a revolution against Catholic Faith and Worship as that represented by the liturgies of Protestant sects. 

The revolutionaries themselves--and their apologists--have told us that this is so:

We must strip from our Catholic prayers and from the Catholic liturgy everything which can be the shadow of a stumbling block for our separated brethren that is for the Protestants." (Annibale Bugnini, L'Osservatore Romano, March 19, 1965.)

"[T]he intention of Pope Paul VI with regard to what is commonly called the Mass, was to reform the Catholic liturgy in such a way that it should coincide with the Protestant liturgy.... [T]here was with Pope Paul VI an ecumenical intention to remove, or at least to correct, or at least to relax, what was too Catholic in the traditional sense, in the Mass, and I, repeat, to get the Catholic Mass closer to the Calvinist mass" (Dec. 19, 1993), Apropos, #17, pp. 8f; quoted in Christian Order, October, 1994. (Jean Guitton, a close friend of Giovanni Montini/Paul VI. The quotation and citations are found in Christopher A. Ferrara and Thomas E. Woods, Jr., The Great Facade, The Remnant Publishing Company, 2002, p. 317.)

Let it be candidly said: the Roman Rite which we have known hitherto no longer exists. It is destroyed. (Father Joseph Gelineau, an associate of Annibale Bugnini on the Consilium, 1uoted and footnoted in the work of a John Mole, who believed that the Mass of the Roman Rite had been "truncated," not destroyed. Assault on the Roman Rite)

What a supreme irony it is that Pope Pius XII put into place the very revolutionaries whose goal it was all along to create a liturgy replete with the elements that he condemned in no uncertain terms in Mediator Dei. This is a mystery that has occurred within the Providence of God.

The forces of evil are at work every day in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, starting with the offense given to God in the abomination that is the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo "service" and are to be found in what is preached from pulpits and taught in schools and colleges and universities and seminaries and professional schools and "update" programs and "workshops" and conferences and dispatches sent us by revolutionary headquarters in Rome itself. This is the great apostasy.

It is perhaps instructive to once again include the late Father Sylvester Berry's 1921 prophecy of the apostasy that has made itself manifest for all to see in the past forty years, admitting that its antecedent roots go back centuries:


“In the forgoing chapter [12] St. John outlines the history of the Church from the coming of Antichrist until the end of the world . . . In this chapter he shows us the true nature of the conflict.  It shall be a war unto death between the Church and the powers of darkness in a final effort to destroy the Church and thus prevent the universal reign of Christ on earth.

“Satan will first attempt to destroy the power of the Papacy and bring about the downfall of the Church through heresies, schisms and persecutions that must surely follow . . . he will raise up Antichrist and his prophet to lead the faithful into error and destroy those who remain steadfast . . . . . . The Church, the faithful spouse of Jesus Christ, is represented as a woman clothed in the glory of divine grace . . .  

" . . . In this passage there is an evident allusion to some particular son of the Church whose power and influence shall be such that Satan will seek his destruction at any cost.  This person can be none other than the Pope to be elected in those days.  The Papacy will be attacked by all the powers of hell.  In consequence the Church will suffer great trials and afflictions in securing a successor upon the throne of Peter.

“The words of St. Paul to the Thessalonians may be a reference to the Papacy as the obstacle to the coming of Antichrist:  ‘You know what withholdeth, that he may be revealed in his time.  For the mystery of iniquity already worketh; only that he who now holdeth, do hold until he be taken out of the way.  And then that wicked one shall be revealed.’

“ . . . St. John  . . . sees in heaven a red dragon with seven heads and ten horns . . . The dragon is Satan red with the blood of martyrs, which he will cause to flow. The meaning of the seven heads and ten horns must be sought in the description of the beast that represents Antichrist where they symbolize kings or worldly powers. (II Thessalonians 2:6-7)  . . . Satan’s attacks against the Church will be organized and carried out by the governments and ruling powers of those days.

“With the beast of Antichrist only the horns have diadems as symbols of royalty or governing power.  The heads are branded with names of blasphemy. (Apocalypse, 13:1)  Hence they symbolize the sins and errors that will afflict the Church . . . in this final struggle to prevent the universal reign of Christ all forms of sin and error will be marshaled against the Church . . .  all errors which have afflicted the Church may be summed up in these seven: Judaism, paganism, Arianism, Mohammedanism, Protestantism, rationalism, and atheism.

“The dragon is seen in heaven which is here a symbol of the Church, the kingdom of heaven on earth.  This indicates that the first troubles of those days will be inaugurated within the Church by apostate bishops, priests, and peoples, — the stars dragged down by the tail of the dragon.

“ . . .  The dragon stands before the woman, ready to devour the child that is brought forth.  In other words, the powers of hell seek by all means to destroy the Pope elected in those days.

“. . . It is now the hour for the powers of darkness.  The new-born Son of the Church is taken ‘to God and to his throne.’  Scarcely has the newly elected Pope been enthroned when he is snatched away by martyrdom. The ‘mystery of iniquity’ gradually developing through the centuries, cannot be fully consummated while the power of the Papacy endures, but now he that ‘withholdeth is taken out of the way.’  During the interregnum ‘that wicked one shall be revealed’ in his fury against the Church.” 

“It is a matter of history that the most disastrous periods for the Church were times when the Papal throne was vacant, or when anti-popes contended with the legitimate head of the Church.  Thus also shall it be in those evil days to come. 

“The Church deprived of her chief pastor must seek sanctuary in solitude there to be guided by God Himself during those trying days . . . In those days the Church shall . . . find refuge and consolation in faithful souls, especially in the seclusion of the religious life.

“ . . . Our Divine Savior has a representative on earth in the person of the Pope upon whom He has conferred full powers to teach and govern.  Likewise, Antichrist will have his representative in the false prophet who will be endowed with the plenitude of satanic powers to deceive the nations.

“ . . . As indicated by the resemblance to a lamb, the prophet will probably set himself up in Rome as a sort of antipope during the vacancy of the papal throne . . .

“ . . . The ‘abomination of desolation’ has been wrought in many Catholic churches by heretics and apostates who have broken altars, scattered relics of martyrs and desecrated the Blessed Sacrament.  At the time of the French Revolution a lewd woman was seated upon the altar of the cathedral in Paris and worshipped as the goddess of reason.  Such things but faintly foreshadow the abominations that will desecrate churches in those sorrowful days when Antichrist will seat himself at the altar to be adored as God.

“. . .Antichrist and his prophet will introduce ceremonies to imitate the Sacraments of the Church.  In fact there will be a complete organization - a church of Satan set up in opposition to the Church of Christ.  Satan will assume the part of God the Father; Antichrist will be honored as Savior, and his prophet will usurp the role of Pope.  Their ceremonies will counterfeit the Sacraments .” (Father E. Sylvester Berry, The Apocalypse of St. John, 1921, contained in the October, 2007, edition of Adsum.)


Yes, we must flee from this abomination of desolation that is the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service as we flee to the catacombs to be served by true bishops and true priests who make no concessions to conciliarism or to the nonexistent legitimacy of any of its false "shepherds."

Those who desire to be "una cum" the chief liturgical innovator, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, and proteges of his are welcome to continue offending God under the "big" tent of the One World Ecumenical Church. Catholics who recognize that the Catholic Church cannot be responsible for any of these sacrileges and abominations will flee as we seek access to the true sacraments and pray for the conversion of those who are responsible for offending God so much as they scandalize His little ones.

We must, first and foremost, of course, make reparation on a daily basis for our own sins by offering all of our prayers and penances and mortifications and sufferings and humiliations to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, praying that God grants us enough time in this passing, mortal vale of tears to make reparation for our sins so as to die with a perfectly clean soul that is unattached to even the thought of any past Venial Sin.

These final days of the liturgical year remind us that our own days are short. My own length of days began fifty-seven years ago today. Only God Himself knows whether this is the last commemoration of my natal day that I will experience before I die, which is why I must be about the business of intensifying my own prayers and my own penances and mortifications to attempt to make some small amount of reparation for the many ways in which I have offended God so frequently, including my refusal for far too long to take the advice of those who admonished me in the sternest terms possible to flee from the Novus Ordo once and for all.

Saint John of the Cross, whose feast day was celebrated two days ago on this splendid, marvelous date of November 24, was asked by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ what he, Saint John, the great mystic and reformer of the Order of Carmel who worked with Saint Teresa of Avila who was imprisoned for nine months as mad by members of his order before God rescued him miraculously  in August of 1578, wanted as a reward for his many labors. Saint John of the Cross replied, "Lord, to suffer and be humiliated for Thee."  I pray to continue to suffer and to continue be even further humiliated than I have been thus far for the sake of Our Lord and His Holy Faith as but a just punishment for my sins! That is what I deserve, especially for being so slow to recognize the Novus Ordo for being an abomination and for resisting the advice of those who tried to convince me to flee from it and its false church once and for all.

Our days are indeed short. We do not know the day or the hour of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour's Coming for us at the end of our lives. To prepare for this terrible moment of our Particular Judgments is never easy. It is even more difficult in these days of apostasy and betrayal, which is why we must not only flee from the false church of conciliarism but also be humble sheep to shepherds who have been courageous enough to serve us despite all of the humiliations that they must endure for doing so. We must be grateful for having access to the daily offering of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition offered by such shepherds and for having a refuge from a world of insanity that flows from the abomination of desolation that is the Novus Ordo and the paradoxes and contradictions contained within the conciliar ethos that gave birth to it and is communicated by it, as witnessed by the travesty in Austria recently.

Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ gave us His Most Blessed Mother to be our Mother as she stood so valiantly by the foot of His Most Holy Cross as He shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood to redeem us. He has instructed her to give Saint Simon Stock the Brown Scapular, which was worn with such great priestly dignity by Saint John of the Cross, a true son of Carmel, and to give Saint Dominic de Guzman her Most Holy Rosary and to give Saint Catherine Laboure the Miraculous Medal. He has let His Most Blessed Mother teach us through her apparition to Juan Diego that He wants the entirety of the Americas converted to His Social Kingship as she is honored publicly by men and their nations, and He has warned us through her apparition at La Salette in France of impending doom in the Church and the world as a result of the sins of men. And He has told His Most Blessed Mother to console us with her Fatima Message, which is why we really should be earnest in praying as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit.

Every Ave Maria we pray helps us to prepare for the hour of our deaths as we seek to repair the damage caused by our sins and those of the whole world. May we be generous in praying our Rosaries as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, remembering, a true Charity demands, to pray fervently for the conversion of the conciliar revolutionaries before they die. We must never be unbent in our sins and we must never be unaware of how we must give God the honor and glory that are His due as members of the Catholic Church who have fled to the catacombs to seek true succor from true bishops and true priests.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon!
