As if the invitation extended and the honorary doctorate awarded to the Marxist-trained, statist, pro-abort President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, were not enough dishonor to heap upon the Mother of God at a formerly Catholic university named in her blessed honor, "Father" John Jenkins, C.S.C., the President of the University of Notre Dame du Lac, ordered the arrest of those who "trespassed" on the campus of my Master's alma mater to protest both Obama's appearance and the award given to him, principally by means of praying her Most Holy Rosary. Eighty-eight of those arrested still face charges of up to one year in prison and up to $5,000 in fines for their actions on the campus of the University of Notre Dame du Lac from Friday, May 15, 2009, to Sunday, May 17, 2009.
Although their legal fate is out of "Father" Jenkins' hands as the defenders of Our Lady's honor are now enmeshed in the machinery of the court system of the Saint Joseph County in Indiana, he has indicated that he will do nothing to request leniency for these ordinary Catholics, many of whom made extraordinary sacrifices to go to Notre Dame, Indiana, to be a visible presence as Caesar Obamus, who has issued Executive Orders that have resulted in the assassinations of innocent preborn children in their mothers' wombs under cover of the civil law. Realizing that many prestigious and financially successful alumni of Our Lady's university that was established as Notre Dame College by the Father Edward Sorin of the Congregation of the Holy Cross in 1842 are upset by the scandal caused by Obama's appearance and his being awarded an honorary doctorate and, very especially, the scandal of how ordinary Catholics were treated as hardened criminals by members of the University of Notre Dame security force, "Father" Jenkins has announced that he will attend the annual March for Life in Washington, District of Columbia, on Friday, January 22, 2010.
Unimpressed by this effort to repair the damage "Father" Jenkins has done to the already-much-damaged reputation of the University of Notre Dame, which, despite having a number of professors who are believing Catholics, has long been a hotbed of conciliarism and the promotion of theological dissent and moral perversity by means of official and unofficial programs and presentations (see
Our Lady Does Not Honor Pro-Aborts), Professor Emeritus of Law, Dr. Charles E. Rice, whose very prophetic book, The Vanishing Right to Life, was used by a Dominican priest who taught a course in moral philosophy at Saint John's University, Jamaica, New York, in which I was enrolled in the Spring Semester of 1972 (and who I met first when applying for admission to the Notre Dame Law School in December of 1972, long before serving on the board of The Wanderer Forum Foundation with Dr. Rice in the 1990s), has written an "open letter" to "Father" Jenkins to plead with him to intervene with the prosecutor's office in the Saint Joseph County to have the charges against the "Notre Dame 88" dropped. (There has been a separate action on the part of the attorneys representing the "Notre Dame 88" to petition the judge in the case to recuse herself. See
Judge in Notre Dame protesters case rejects recusal motion.)
Here is part of Dr. Rice's open letter:
Those 88 defendants were on the other side of the campus, far removed from the site of the Commencement. They are subjected by Notre Dame to the criminal process because they came, as individuals, to Notre Dame to pray, peacefully and non-obstructively, on this ordinarily open campus, in petition and reparation, as a response to what they rightly saw as a facilitation by Notre Dame of various objectively evil policies and programs of Notre Dame’s honoree, President Obama. Those persons, whom Notre Dame has subjected to legal process as criminals, are neither statistics nor abstractions. Let me tell you about a few of them.
Fr. Norman Weslin, O.S., 79 years old and in very poor health, was handcuffed by Notre Dame Security Police as he sang “Immaculate Mary” on the campus sidewalk near the entrance. He asked them, “Why would you arrest a Catholic priest for trying to stop the killing of a baby?” The NDSP officers put him on a pallet and dragged him away to jail. St. Joseph County Police were also there. I urge you to watch the readily available videos of Fr. Weslin’s arrest. If you do, I will be surprised and disappointed if you are not personally and deeply ashamed.
Such treatment of such a priest may be the lowest point in the entire history of Notre Dame. You would profit from knowing Fr. Weslin. Notre Dame should give Fr. Weslin the Laetare Medal rather than throw him in jail. Norman Weslin, born to poor Finnish immigrants in upper Michigan, finished high school at age 17 and joined the Army. He converted from the Lutheran to the Catholic faith and married shortly after earning his commission. He became a paratrooper and rose to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the 82nd Airborne Division, obtaining his college degree enroute. After a distinguished career, he retired in 1968. As the legalization of abortion intensified, he and his wife, Mary Lou, became active pro-lifers in Colorado. In 1980, Mary Lou was killed by a drunk driver. Norman personally forgave the young driver. Norman Weslin was later ordained as a Catholic priest, worked with Mother Teresa in New York and devoted himself to the rescue of unborn children through nonviolent, prayerful direct action at abortuaries. In 1990 at Christmastime, I was privileged to defend Fr. Weslin and his Lambs of Christ when they were arrested at the abortuary in South Bend. One does not have to agree with the tactic of direct, non-violent action at abortuaries to have the utmost admiration, as I have, for Fr. Weslin and his associates. At Notre Dame, Fr. Weslin engaged in no obstruction or disruption. He merely sought to pray for the unborn on the ordinarily open campus of a professedly Catholic university. The theme of Notre Dame’s honoring of Obama was “dialogue.” It would have been better for you and the complicit Fellows and Trustees to dialogue with Fr. Weslin rather than lock him up as a criminal. You all could have learned something from him. His actions in defense of innocent life and the Faith have been and are heroic. Notre Dame’s treatment of Fr. Weslin is a despicable disgrace, the responsibility for which falls directly and personally upon yourself as the President of Notre Dame.
The other “criminals” stigmatized by Notre Dame include many whom this university should honor rather than oppress. One is Norma McCorvey, the plaintiff in Roe v. Wade, who has become pro-life and a Catholic actively trying to spread the word about abortion. Those “criminals” include retired professors, retired military officers, mothers of many children, a Catholic nun in full habit, Christian pastors, several Ph.Ds, and Notre Dame grads. They are, in summary, “the salt of the earth.” They came, on their own, at their own expense, and not as part of any “conspiracy,” from 18 states. They came because they love what Notre Dame claims to represent. They themselves do represent it. But one has to doubt whether Notre Dame does so anymore.
Clearly, Notre Dame should do all it can to obtain the dismissal of those criminal charges. This has nothing to do with one’s opinion of the tactics of rescue at abortuaries. It is simply a matter of you, as President, doing the manifestly right thing.
Please permit me to speak bluntly about your announced purpose to participate in the March for Life and to “invite other members of the Notre Dame Family to join me.” Notre Dame should have had an official presence at every March for Life since 1973. But until now it never has. Notre Dame students, with the encouragement of Campus Ministry, participate in the March but the University, as such, has not done so. To put it candidly, it would be a mockery for you to present yourself now at the March, even at the invitation of Notre Dame students, as a pro-life advocate while, in practical effect, you continue to be the jailer, as common criminals, of those persons who were authentic pro-life witnesses at Notre Dame. When the picture of Fr. Weslin’s humiliation and arrest by your campus police was flashed around the world it did an incalculable damage to Notre Dame that can be partially undone only by your public and insistent request, as President of Notre Dame, that the charges be dropped. In my opinion your attachment to the March for Life, including your offering of a Mass for Life, could give scandal in the absence, at least, of such an insistent request to dismiss those charges. Your decision to present an official Notre Dame presence at the March could be beneficial, but not in the context of an unrelenting criminalization by Notre Dame of sincere and peaceful friends of Notre Dame whose offense was their desire to pray, on the campus, for the University and all concerned including yourself. If you appear at the March as the continuing criminalizer of those pro-life witnesses, you predictably will earn not approbation but scorn—a scorn which will surely be directed toward Notre Dame as well. As long as you pursue the criminalization of those pro-life witnesses, your newest pro-life statements will be regarded reasonably as a cosmetic covering of the institutional anatomy in the wake of the continuing backlash arising from your conferral of Notre Dame’s highest honor on the most relentlessly pro-abortion public official in the world. (Open letter from Dr. Charles Rice to Notre Dame President)
Leaving aside a consideration of the fact that the priestly ordinations conducted in the conciliar rite since 1968 have been invalid, it is indeed shameful that men who are accepted by the officials of the University of Notre Dame du Lac have been manhandled in the manner described by Dr. Rice in his open letter to "Father" John I. Jenkins. No amount of, to use Dr. Rice's term, protecting the university's "institutional anatomy" will change the shame caused by "Father" Jenkins's invitation to Barack Hussein Obama or the shame represented by the persecution of those who sought to defend the honor of the very Mother of God as they prayed in reparation for the actions of "Father" Jenkins in bestowing an award upon a man who makes war mystically upon Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and His true Church by promoting the very thing that caused Our Lord to suffer in His Sacred Humanity during His Passion and Death--and that caused those Seven Swords of Sorrow to be pierced through and through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, sin, under cover of the civil law in this country and around the world.
Much like Roger Mahony, the subject of yesterday's article, Apostasy Is His Field, "Father" John Jenkins does not recognize that those who promote sin under cover of the civil law are unfit to hold any office, including, as Dr. Rice noted in an article in The Wanderer in 1998, as the trustee of a mosquito abatement district, no less as President of the United States of America.
Any candidate who believes that the law should treat any innocent human beings as nonpersons by tolerating their execution is unworthy to hold any public office, whether President, trustee of a mosquito abatement district, or senator. (Dr. Charles E. Rice, "Pro-Life Reflections on Sen. D'Amato," The Wanderer, August 27, 1998.)
What I wrote six months ago this every day about this scandal is relevant once again:
No thought would ever be given by "Father" John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., the President of the University of Notre Dame since July 1, 2005, to invite a President of the United States of America who was an open supporter of the racialist ideology of "white supremacism."
No thought would ever ben given by "Father" John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., the President of the University of Notre Dame since July 1, 2005, to invite a President of the United States of America who was tainted in any way, whether legitimate or illegitimate, by the whiff of an accusation of being "anti-Semitic."
No thought would ever ben given by "Father" John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., the President of the University of Notre Dame since July 1, 2005, to invite a President of the United States of America who expressed a belief in the conclusions reached by historical revisionists concerning the nature and the extent of the crimes committed by agents of the Third Reich of Adolf Hitler during World War II.
Indeed, the University of Notre Dame is jumping on the "bash Bishop Williamson" bandwagon by holding a conference on Holocaust Denial in the 21st Century: New Forms of Antisemitism on the Feast of the Annunciation tomorrow evening, March 25, 2009. Those who deny the one and only Holocaust, that offered by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to His Co-Equal and Co-Eternal Father on the wood of the Holy Cross in Spirit and in Truth in atonement for our sins are featured speakers on Our Lady's campus that is so open to the likes of pro-aborts such as Obama.
Father John I. Jenkins, C.S.C. would never invite a President of the United States of America who believed in historical revisionism about the crimes of the Third Reich. Those crimes would never be relegated to simply "one" issue among many, nor would it be said that such a president had "other things" to teach us. Such a president would be shunned entirely. Not so those who believe in baby-killing and who corrupt policy here and abroad in light of this daily warfare against God. Those who are at war with God by means of supporting one of the four crimes that cry out to Him for vengeance can ever be an instrument of the common temporal good domestically or "peace" internationally.
No thought would ever ben given by "Father" John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., the President of the University of Notre Dame since July 1, 2005, to invite a President of the United States of America who expressed support for the repeal of the Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America and who was an open supporter of invidious racial segregation under cover of the civil law.
No thought would ever ben given by "Father" John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., the President of the University of Notre Dame since July 1, 2005, to invite a President of the United States of America who embraced sedevacantism as the canonical doctrine of the Catholic Church and that it applies in these our times.
"Father" John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., the President of the University of Notre Dame since July 1, 2005, has not a moment's hesitation, however, to invite a President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, who is more than an "academic" supporter of the decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States of America in the cases of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, January 22, 1973. Barack Hussein Obama has voted in support of the killing of the innocent preborn in their mothers' wombs under cover of the civil law as a member of the Illinois State Senate and the United States Senate. He has in the past sixty-three days elevated his level of responsibility before God for this sin that cries out to Heaven for vengeance by signing Executive Orders to authorize the use of the tax dollars paid by American citizens to the Federal government of the United States of America to mystically dismember Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in the persons of preborn children in their mothers' wombs. Barack Hussein Obama has the blood of the innocent dripping on his hands.
"Father" Jenkins has in fact protested in the face of objections to his plans to invite the pro-death President of the United States of America that Barack Hussein Obama has "worthwhile" things to say about "other" issues," that it would be opposed to "academic freedom" and to the American concept of "freedom of speech" to deny him a forum at the University of Notre Dame. I would respond by pointing out that Our Lady, the Mother of God, would never provide a "forum" for anyone who supports the mystical dismemberment of her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, in the persons of innocent preborn children in their mothers' wombs under cover of the civil law. It is that simple. Obama's being black, yellow, green, red or turquoise has nothing at all to do with the fact that he is an open enemy of Christ the King and of Mary our Immaculate Queen. This is real, real simple. . . .
It is one thing to sin and to be sorry, to seek out the Mercy of the Divine Redeemer at the hands of a true bishop or a true priest in the Sacred Tribunal of Penance. It is quite another to persist in sin unrepentantly,r worse yet to promote it under the cover of civil law and in every aspect of what passes for popular culture.
Sin--yours, mine, everyone's--is what caused Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to suffer unspeakably in His Sacred Humanity during His Passion and Death.
Sin--yours, mine, everyone's--is what caused those Seven Swords of Sorrow to be thrust through and through the Immaculate Heart of His Most Blessed Mother, after whom the University of Notre Dame du Lac is named.
Sin--yours, mine, everyone's--is what wounds the Church Militant on earth and thus sows the seeds of personal and social disorder.
No one but no one who promotes grievous sins under cover of the civil law is a friend of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ or of His Most Blessed Mother. Such a person must be the object of our prayers for his conversion. He has no place addressing anyone about anything on a campus that purports to be Catholic as he believes in the exact opposite of what was written by the late Silvio Cardinal Antoniano in the Sixteenth Century:
The more closely the temporal power of a nation aligns itself with the spiritual, and the more it fosters and promotes the latter, by so much the more it contributes to the conservation of the commonwealth. For it is the aim of the ecclesiastical authority by the use of spiritual means, to form good Christians in accordance with its own particular end and object; and in doing this it helps at the same time to form good citizens, and prepares them to meet their obligations as members of a civil society. This follows of necessity because in the City of God, the Holy Roman Catholic Church, a good citizen and an upright man are absolutely one and the same thing. How grave therefore is the error of those who separate things so closely united, and who think that they can produce good citizens by ways and methods other than those which make for the formation of good Christians. For, let human prudence say what it likes and reason as it pleases, it is impossible to produce true temporal peace and tranquillity by things repugnant or opposed to the peace and happiness of eternity.
"Father" Jenkins, do you believe that the daily slaughter of the preborn by chemical and surgical means is repugnant to the peace and happiness of eternity? Do you? If you do believe this, "Father" Jenkins, how is it possible for one who believes in and supports and makes possible the daily slaughter of the preborn by chemical and surgical means to be an instrument of "true temporal peace and tranquility"? By what stretch of logic can one claim that Barack Hussein Obama's support for abortion does not arouse the wrath of God and is indeed an impediment to the pursuit of the common temporal good as it must be undertaken in light of man's Last End, the possession of the glory of the Beatific Vision of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost for all eternity in Heaven in the company of Our Lady, Saint Joseph, and all of the angels and the saints?
What about "academic freedom?" What about the American concept of "freedom of speech?" Here is a newsflash, "Father" Jenkins: the Catholic Church does not believe in the American concepts of "academic freedom" and "freedom of speech." No one has a right from God to disseminate error openly and to put into doubt even one article contained in the Deposit of Faith that He has entrusted entirely to the Catholic Church for Its eternal safekeeping and infallible explication.
Pope Gregory XVI made this clear in Mirari Vos, August 15, 1832:
This shameful font of indifferentism gives rise to that absurd and erroneous proposition which claims that liberty of conscience must be maintained for everyone. It spreads ruin in sacred and civil affairs, though some repeat over and over again with the greatest impudence that some advantage accrues to religion from it. "But the death of the soul is worse than freedom of error," as Augustine was wont to say. When all restraints are removed by which men are kept on the narrow path of truth, their nature, which is already inclined to evil, propels them to ruin. Then truly "the bottomless pit" is open from which John saw smoke ascending which obscured the sun, and out of which locusts flew forth to devastate the earth. Thence comes transformation of minds, corruption of youths, contempt of sacred things and holy laws -- in other words, a pestilence more deadly to the state than any other. Experience shows, even from earliest times, that cities renowned for wealth, dominion, and glory perished as a result of this single evil, namely immoderate freedom of opinion, license of free speech, and desire for novelty.
Here We must include that harmful and never sufficiently denounced freedom to publish any writings whatever and disseminate them to the people, which some dare to demand and promote with so great a clamor. We are horrified to see what monstrous doctrines and prodigious errors are disseminated far and wide in countless books, pamphlets, and other writings which, though small in weight, are very great in malice. We are in tears at the abuse which proceeds from them over the face of the earth. Some are so carried away that they contentiously assert that the flock of errors arising from them is sufficiently compensated by the publication of some book which defends religion and truth. Every law condemns deliberately doing evil simply because there is some hope that good may result. Is there any sane man who would say poison ought to be distributed, sold publicly, stored, and even drunk because some antidote is available and those who use it may be snatched from death again and again? (Pope Gregory XVI, Mirari Vos, August 15, 1832.)
Oh, yes, I know. I know. This is not taught by the counterfeit church of conciliarism, which has made its "reconciliation" with the false, naturalistic, anti-Incarnational and semi-Pelagian principles of the modern civil state, including the United States of America. The fact that the lords of the counterfeit church of conciliarism reject the consistent teaching of the Catholic Church reiterated by Pope Gregory XVI in Mirari Vos and by Pope Pius IX in Quanta Cura, December 8, 1864, is one of the proofs of its apostate nature. Saint Augustine, however, had it entirely correct when he wrote:
"But the death of the soul is worse than freedom of error."
It does not matter that President Barack Hussein Obama is not going to the University of Notre Dame du Lac in Notre Dame, Indiana, to speak about baby-killing. A man who supports baby-killing is incapable of being an instrument to advance the common temporal good undertaken in light of man's Last End as he does indeed believe things that are repugnant to the peace and happiness of eternity. Such a man has nothing to offer Catholics unless the daily mystical dismemberment of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in the persons of innocent preborn children in their mothers' wombs is just "one" issue among many.
Alas, the daily slaughter of the preborn is not "one" issue among many. It is the overriding moral issue of our day about which no one can remain indifferent or aloof. Pope Pius XI, writing in Casti Connubii, minced no words when he spoke of the eternal fate that awaited anyone in public life, Catholic or not, who supported the direct, intentional killing of any innocent human life under cover of the civil law:
Those who hold the reins of government should not forget that it is the duty of public authority by appropriate laws and sanctions to defend the lives of the innocent, and this all the more so since those whose lives are endangered and assailed cannot defend themselves. Among whom we must mention in the first place infants hidden in the mother's womb. And if the public magistrates not only do not defend them, but by their laws and ordinances betray them to death at the hands of doctors or of others, let them remember that God is the Judge and Avenger of innocent blood which cried from earth to Heaven. (Pope Pius XI, Casti Connubii, December 30, 1930.)
Was Pope Pius XI wrong, "Father" Jenkins?
No one who is at war with the Catholic Faith by means of his promotion of sin under cover of the civil law can pursue the common temporal good, undertaken as it must be in light of man's Last End, the possession of the glory of the Beatific Vision of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost for all eternity in Heaven. The counterfeit church of conciliarism, which has made its "reconciliation" with the naturalistic, anti-Incarnational, religiously indifferentist and semi-Pelagian principles of Modernity, has been headed by men who have lost their sense of the horror of personal sin as they, the conciliar "pontiffs," have blasphemed the honor and majesty and glory of the Most Blessed Trinity by praising false religions and esteeming their symbols and calling their places of diabolical worship as "sacred" (see
Having No Regard for the Horror of Personal Sin and
Respect Those Who Break the First Commandment? Respect Those Who Break the Fifth Commandment).
"Father" John Jenkins was wrong to have invited Obama to speak and to give him an honorary doctorate, filled with effusive praise for this pro-abortion public official whose hands are dripping with the blood of the innocent preborn (see
No "Common Ground" Between Truth and Error). He was wrong not not to let ordinary Catholics have access to the campus of the University of Notre Dame du Lac to defend the honor of the Mother of God and to make reparation for the offenses being committed against her. He was wrong to have had these good people arrested. He is wrong not to request prosecutors for all charges against these Catholics to be dropped posthaste.
All of this having been noted, however, I will reiterate here what I wrote earlier this year: that is, as horrible as the scandal represented by the events at the University of Notre Dame du Lac were then and remain now, the devil used the scandal of Barack Hussein Obama's commencement address and honorary doctorate to deflect the attention of Catholics from how the honor and majesty and glory of God were being assaulted on a daily basis by Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI during his pilgrimage to Jordan and Israel at the very same time (see
"When He Cometh, Shall He Find, Think You, Faith on Earth?"). With only a few very exceptions, almost none of those involved in the protests at the University of Notre Dame du Lac raised their voices in defense of the honor and glory and majesty of God as the false "pontiff" called referred to mosques as "sacred" and as he prayed as a Jew at the Western Wall in Jerusalem without making any reference to Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Catholics yet attached to the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism must learn that they are imprisoned by a variety of falsehoods that millions of Catholics prior to our time had given up their lives to reject in order to be true to the Holy Integrity of the Catholic Faith. What is happening at the University of Notre Dame is merely symptomatic of the much larger sickness of Modernism upon which the entire structure of the false religion of conciliarism, whose "pontiffs" reject the Social Reign of Christ the King and the necessity of praying and working for the restoration of the confessionally Catholic civil state, rests.
Remember, one man, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, could have stopped Obama's appearance at the University of Notre Dame du Lac on May 17, 2009. Alas it was this man, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI who imparted a
"blessing" on Obama and all his work on July 10, 2009. The problem is not "Father" Jenkins or "Cardinal" Mahony or other "bad" bishops. The problem is conciliarism itself, defended and propagated with great zeal by the conciliar "pontiffs," especially the currently presiding Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI.
We must continue to cleave exclusively to true bishops and to true priests in the Catholic catacombs who make no concessions to conciliarism or to the nonexistent legitimacy of its apostate "officials," men who are most casual in their acceptance of outrages that have become commonplace in their false church that gives so much offense to Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and to His Most Blessed Mother.
We must also recognize that our sins have contributed mightily to the worsening of the state of the Church Militant and to the state of the world. We have much for which to make reparation, especially those of us who were slow to embrace the truth that those who defect from the Faith expel themselves from the Church and cannot hold office within her legitimately. Our Rosaries of reparation today may help to plant the seeds for the restoration of the Church Militant at some point in the future.
Our Lady will not abandon us at the hour of death if we have attempted to defend her honor during our lives. May the occasion of the scandals caused by actions of "Father" John Jenkins and the scandals caused by the conciliar "pontiffs" themselves cause to pray more fervently and to make many more sacrifices to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary with joy and with love.
Vivat Christus Rex! Viva Cristo Rey!
Isn't it time to pray a Rosary now?
