Blood Flows Freely in America and Libya
Blood is flowing freely in the streets of Tripoli, Libya, at this time. Blood flows freely right here in the United States of America every day. Moammar Qaddafi is brutally honest about his willingness to kill as many people as it takes to remain in power in Libya. Barack Hussein Obama believes that he is a champion of "women's rights" in a "civilized" nation. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Saint Peter Damian, pray for us. Saint Matthias, pray for us.
There should be a new article published tomorrow, February 24, 2011, the Feast of Saint Matthias. Remember, please check on the alternate home page or on the Articles page for new postings as there are still problems with this home page, problems that will last for another week or ten days. Thank you for being so resourceful!
Finally, our snail mail has yet to catch up with us as relief has been sought--and found--for the frostbitten toes and cracked fingers. Southern climates have helped tremendously, and I thank each of you for your prayers. A travelogue will be made available at some point in the next week or so. We will send thank you notes posthaste upon the receipt of that snail mail next week to those of you who have sent us non-tax-deductible financial gifts.

With Zeal for Falsehood
Another short article! This one is yet another treatment of the "popular" protests taking place in the countries of North Africa and in the Persian Gulf. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.
There should be another short article soon.

Revised: Preparing for Lenten Penances
Today is Septuagesima Sunday. Lent begins in but seventeen days. Easter is exactly nine weeks way. It is time to start our preparations for Lent, time to start thinking about the penances we are going to undertake starting on Ash Wednesday in order to make reparation for our sins and those of the whole world as we prepare to enter deep into the mysteries of the Paschal Triduum of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's Passion, Death, and Resurrection on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday. The purple vestments representing a penitential season of Holy Mother Church make their reappearance today to remind us that we must be deadly serious about the business of making the best Lent of our lives as we do not know whether this Lent will be our last one on the face of this earth--or whether we will even live to see the end of this particular Lent! Let us use this time well as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, praying as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit.
Rank and File Union Thuggery ala Obama/Alinksy
Although we have been on the move a lot in the past ten days or so, I have managed to keep up with some of the "news," including efforts on the part of various state governors to rein in the profligate spending that is leading their states to the point of fiscal bankruptcy. That we are eyewitnesses to massive street protests as civil servants demand to retain various privileges and benefits is yet another proof of the corruption that occurs in a society that does not submit itself to the sweet yoke of the Social Reign of Christ the King as It must be exercised by His Catholic Church. This is an old-fashioned, no-holds-barred Christ or Chaos article, published on the seventh anniversary of this website "going live" on the internet. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
Finally, it is my solemn duty as a Catholic and as one who was privileged to know a true Catholic gentleman to request prayers for the repose of the soul of the late +Mr. Bernie Brueggemann, a pioneering traditional Catholic of the Cincinnati, Ohio, area, who was instrumental in building and sustaining, both spiritually and temporally, Saint Gertrude the Great Church over the years and who lent his support also to Saint Albert the Great Church near the end of his life. Mr. Brueggemann died yesterday, Saturday, February 19, 2011, in his home in Independence, Kentucky, at 3:30 p.m., Eastern Standard Time. He was eighty-four years old, I believe.
Words cannot begin to express the gratitude to the good God that each of us in the Droleskey family have for being given the tremendous privilege of knowing Mr. Brueggemann, of dining with him on several occasions, of being inspired by his charity for the needs of others, starting with that of the remnant Church in this time of apostasy and betrayal, and by his great piety and devotion. Mr. Brueggemann spent many long hours in prayer before Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's Real Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament, going so far as to sleep in his car at various points during times of all night adoration at Saint Gertrude the Great Church on the evenings of First Fridays and the mornings of First Saturdays. It was not uncommon to find him assisting at two and three Masses on a Sunday or during the week as his schedule permitted.
Mr. Bernie Brueggemann was entirely devoted to his late wife, Rita Brueggemann, who died almost exactly three years ago now after suffering from a very long illness, and his children, who were so devoted to him in return. I told our daughter that she had been given a marvelous gift from Our Lord Himself to assist at a Holy Mass, offered by Father James Thielen in Our Lady of Consolation Chapel (located in a room of the house where Mr. Brueggemann lived until he moved himself into an apartment above the offices of the company, Bavarian Trucking that was founded in 1901 and has been in his family ever since), at which Bernie Brueggemann served. We told Lucy, "Mr. Brueggemann prays like an angel. He learned his practices of piety as a boy and he has never changed. He has maintained the innocence and purity with which he first served Holy Mass."
Mr. Bernie Brueggemann was tenderly devoted to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. He was a zealous promoter of Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary. He exuded the kindness and meekness and gentleness of the Sacred Heart of Christ the King as he tried to lead one and all to take shelter in the tender mercies of that Sacred Heart as the consecrated slaves of Mary our Immaculate Queen. Although we are saddened by his death and express our deepest and most heartfelt condolences to his children and grandchildren, assuring them of our prayers for his own immortal soul for their own loss at this time, we will be, as noted above, forever grateful to God for the privilege of knowing Mr. Bernie Brueggemann in life and for being united to him by means of the Communion of Saints after his death. For as much as he did for Holy Mother Church and for those of us who knew him during his inspirational life here on earth, he will do far more for us from eternity, keeping in mind, of course, of our need to pray for the repose of his soul as we trust that a good steward of things spiritual and temporal such as he was will not go without his eternal reward.
Eternal rest grant unto Mr. Bernie Brueggemann, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and all of the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

The Better Mousetrap
Well, look at this: a new article. Well, a mostly new article, I should add, as this brief commentary deals with the madness engendered by a possible forthcoming "papal" motu proprio that might "restrict" some of the "rights" outlined in Summorum Pontificum. The Church Militant on earth cannot be restored by means of this kind of madness. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Saint Simeon, pray for us. Saint Bernadette Soubirous, pray for us.
There should be new articles on each of the next two days. I thank the twelve readers of this site for their patience!
February 18 Update
Yes, there is still a Christ or Chaos website. As I am very tired from some long days of travel, having reached warmer climes that have done wonders for my frostbitten toes (and permitted a bit of what the ancients would have called "sleep" along the way) and for the cracked fingers, I am going to refrain from completing an article that I have started. That new article should, though, be posted by late this afternoon, February 18, 2011. Check on the Articles page for its publication as there are still ongoing issues with this home page that remain unresolved for now. The home page will be updated in due course after the new article is published on the Articles page.
Thank you for your patience for the next article to appear. And I wish also to beg the forgiveness of those who have not received any responses to e-mails that they have sent me in recent days as I have had spent very little time on the computer in the past week or ten days. I am happy to report that life goes on very well without the computer! It's been nice, to be honest, to have taken an enforced break from the computer. Just look for that new article on the Articles page later today. Thank you.
February 14 Article
The hour is indeed quite late. This is my first foray into the naturalistic, bread and circuses farce that is the contest for the 2012 Republican Party presidential nomination. This is the sort of article that contains quite noninfallible judgments in the practical order of things written by a political scientist who attempts, despite his own many sins and failings, to view everything in life, including electoral politics, through the eyes of the true Faith. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Saint Valentine, pray for us.
The next original article on this site should appear on Wednesday, February 16, 2011.
February 13 Article
Nothing Stable, Nothing Secure
Yes, another new article for the vast readership of this site. The hour is late. You'll just have to read this brief article for yourself.
There should be another original article tomorrow, Monday, February 14, 2011, the Feast of Saint Valentine.
February 12 Update
Although there should be a new article published tomorrow, February 13, 2011, the Sixth Sunday after the Epiphany, this brief update is to inform the vast readership of this website (yes, as always, my tongue is planted firmly in my cheek), that the reduction of articles in the past week caused by my physical infirmities may continue for another five days or so. We have had some mechanical difficulties with one of our vehicles that have interfered with plans to seek a more hospitable environment for those infirmities to heal. The penances of the present moment are accepted with great joy and gratitude. We must remember that Our Lady told Saint Bernadette Soubirous the following on February 24, 1858: " Penance! Penance! Penance! Pray to God for Sinners." We love the penances that God sends us, gladly giving back unto Him through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of His Most Blessed Mother whatever merit we might earn from our patient and joyful embrace of them. It is just wonderful to be a Catholic!
Be advised, however, that I am unable to answer e-mails with any kind of promptness at this time. I do, though, ask for your prayers and will try to have articles posted tomorrow and on Monday, February 14, 2011, the Feast of Saint Valentine. Thank you for your patience.
February 10 Article
Badly cracked fingers and very frozen toes mean short and intermittent articles for you. Please know that I am trying to keep up with the work, and may yet be resorting to audio presentations as typing is quite difficult to do at this time. Penance is indeed better than ever in 2011. Thank you for your patience. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Saint Scholastica, pray for us.
February 7 Revised Article
Revised: Still Nothing Super About the Super Bowl
Although a few days are needed to permit the healing of my fingers and a few other ailments, I did want to post this revised article about the bread and circuses diversion that occupied the attention of so many Americans last evening. I will have a new article for you in a few days. Keep checking. Thank you for your patience. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Saint Romuald, pray for us.
February 5 Article
Let It Be Established
The administration of Caesar Obamus is examining whether to mandate the coverage of contraception as part of ObamaCare's goal to provide "preventive health services" to women. A child is not a disease. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us. Saint Agatha, pray for us. Ah, although I have not had time to write any full travelogues since August of 2009, I have written up a few episodes that happened to us yesterday. You will find that write-up at the end of this current article.
I need to make several acknowledgments now.
First, I want to thank the kind readers who have written to me about how to deal with cracked finger tips that hurt whenever I use my fingers, which is pretty much all the time (Deo gratias!). The readers have made excellent suggestions. Thank you.
Second, a note of thanks is offered publicly to several people who offered to assist me in the repair of this home page. One of those who played a key role in restoring the home page (and thus of the Articles page as well, as you can see) to its original appearance is the kind and generous and patient traditional Catholic gentleman who built the subscription-based site that I simply could not use as I was required to deal with all types of codes that never appear in my Adobe Contribute software program, which permits me to write and publish without seeing or dealing with any kinds of computer codes.
This gentleman provided me with the codes, which I then forwarded to Mr. David Bridle, who owns Bonaventure Web Design. Mr. Brindle, who is the son-in-law of a good friend who has been very kind to us over the years, did exemplary work in restoring the home page and the articles archive page, also restoring the hot links to each. I am very much indebted to Mr. Brindle, and urge you to consider using his professional and competent services if you want to build a new website or to improve an existing one. Thank you, Mr. Brindle.
My thanks go also to the others who offered to provide assistance in this regard. I am very appreciative of the offers of assistance to repair this page that I received. My thanks to each of you who made such offers.
The next article? Just keep checking. I'm doing the best that I can. Keep checking. Thanks.
February 3 Article
Roger Vinson, a judge who sits on the Pensacola Division of the United States District Court for Northern Florida, issued a decision three days ago declaring ObamaCare's provision that individuals be required to purchase health insurance to be unconstitutional, thus voiding the entire "Affordable Health Care Act" because Congress did not include a "severability" clause in its text so that any one provision of the law found to be unconstitutional would not void the entire law. Don't celebrate too long, though. Judge Vinson's well-reasoned and very correct decision hangs by slender threads. Why? Read this very brief article. Look at this way: my own very relatively minor physical infirmities make your reading lives a little easier, that is, for the few of you who remain on this site (smile!)
Today is the fourth anniversary of the death of Sharon's father, the late Mr. John Griffith Collins III. Please remember the repose of the immortal soul of Mr. Collins, who returned to the Holy Faith on January 3, 2007, after an absence of seventy years. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and all of the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Republished: The Sword of Sorrow
Today is the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary, always the humble handmaid of the Lord who humbled herself this day, the last day of Christmastide, which ends after Holy Mass this morning, by submitting to the rituals of the law although she was not in need of such a ritualistic purification because of her Perpetual Virginity. This is the day that Our Lady presented her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, in the same Temple where He would be found twelve years later answering questions of the rabbis, the same Temple whose curtain would be torn in two from top to bottom as He breathed His last on the wood of the Holy Cross to redeem us, thereby signifying the permanent end of the Old Covenant and the supersession of Judaism by Catholicism as the true religion.
The aged Simeon, who waited patiently every day in the Temple for the fulfillment of the promise that God had made to him, that he would not die before his eyes had seen and his arms had beheld the Messiah, sent the first Sword of Sorrow plunging through Our Lady's Sorrowful and and Immaculate Heart when he prophesied that the Child he beheld would be destined for the rise and for the fall of man, a sign to be opposed, a Sign of Contradiction.
We must never fear to be signs of contradiction in our own lives in imitation of the THE Sign of Contradiction, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, as He hung on the wood of the Holy Cross to redeem us as he was mocked and reviled by the very people from whose stock He had taken His Sacred Humanity. We must be willing to suffer all manner of calumny and humiliation for the many times that we have preferred human respect to fidelity to Our Lord, for the many times we have refused to call upon Our Lady's maternal intercession, for the many times we have refused to "take sides," especially in our day by refusing to reject conciliarism and its ravenous wolves once and for all. Our Lady, Help of Christians, pray for us! Saint Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church and Protector of the Faithful, pray for us.
Not Interested in Assisi III
Well, this very brief article could not be completed until late last evening. In addition to the frostbitten toes that still are a source of some much deserved penitential discomfort, I have been dealing with slits at the top of various fingers, including both thumbs, forefingers and index fingers, that keep opening up just after they have healed (a combination of cold weather work and dishwashing, I suppose). The condition, which, of course, has been offered up to Our Lord through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, has worsened to such an extent as typing has been made nearly impossible. I may have to resort to audio recordings instead of the daily articles until this condition is rectified, whenever it is in God's Holy Providence for this to occur. Penance is indeed better than ever in 2011.
Oh yes, this article is a follow-up to American Pots Lecturing Egyptian Kettles. I will try to have another brief article posted by tomorrow morning, the Feast of Saint Blase, if I am able to type. If not, there will be a brief audio recording. Thank you for your patience.
January 31 Article
Zealous For Souls Until the Very End
My apologies for the lateness of this article. It's still January 31, 2011, the Feast of Saint John Bosco. Here is a brief reflection on the life and work to this Saint, who holds a very special place in the hearts of each member of our own family. Our Lady, Help of Christians, pray for us. Saint John Bosco, pray for us.
There should be another brief article at some point tomorrow. Thanks again for your patience. It's been a little tough getting sleep these last few weeks because of the discomfort caused by the frostbite. The penance is good. The good God knows that I need it! All is given back to Him with joy and gratitude through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. Also, and much more importantly, I beg you prayers for Sharon, whose sciatica has returned, although it is not as horrific as it was four months ago now. The Cross is our path to Heaven. We must embrace it with great joy as we seek to make reparation to our sins as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Late January 30 Update
The next article on this site should appear by late tomorrow afternoon, Monday, January 31, 2011. It will be a short reflection on the life and the work of Saint John Bosco, whose feast is, of course, celebrated tomorrow. The few readers of this site are thanked for their patience! (Smile.) Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Saint Martina, pray for us.
January 29 Article
American Pots Lecturing Egyptian Kettles
This is a brief article about the explosive situation in Egypt. It contains a bit of commentary that you might not find in too many other places. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us. Saint Francis de Sales, pray for us.
The post office box has been, other than two envelopes, rather barren in the past week since the January 19, 2011, Donations, was posted. Although the eight non-tax-deductible financial gifts that we have received on PayPal and the two that we have received at the post office have helped to pay a few bills, there are others that need to be paid. If--and only IF--you find the work of this site to your liking and only IF you have the means to make a gift of between two and five dollars, I ask you to consider whether the laborer is worth at least a little keep in return for these articles and recordings. We need your help. Thank you.
January 27 Article
Another brief article. This one is about Walter "Cardinal" Kasper's receiving something called the "Lambeth Cross" award from Anglican layman Rowan Williams two days ago. It's so nice to see non-bishops stick together as the seek to build the One World Ecumenical Church. Well, it's time to start the next article, which will be a little change of pace for the few of you who remain as readers of this site. That article should be published tomorrow morning at some point. There's more to follow after that! Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Saint John Chrysostom, pray for us.
January 26 Article
This very brief article is all that last night's exercise in naturalism of the "left" deserves. It is perhaps the singularly briefest article to appear on this site. There is no need to waste words on a waste of time. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Saint Polycarp, for us.
Another article, perhaps as brief as this one, will be published tomorrow, albeit a lot earlier than this one got itself posted on the Feast of Saint Polycarp.
January 25 Article
Bearing "Fruits" From Hell Itself, part 2
You can ignore last night's update, which I am too tired to delete. Here is part two of yesterday's article. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.
A blessed Feast of Saint Paul the Apostle to you all.
Evening Update: Well, I really mean it this time! No article will be written tonight. I will, however, attempt to post one by late tomorrow afternoon that will deal with the caesar's state of the union address, for which I am not staying up in order to continue my quixotic quest for sleep. Walter Kasper is on the horizon after that. Did you hear? He received something called the "Lambeth Award" from the Anglican sect. Didn't he hear that I have frostbite and haven't rested well for two weeks? How inconsiderate. How rude. The work must continue.
Check back tomorrow. God bless, Mary keep, Thomas A. Droleskey
January 24 Article and Audio Lectures and Evening Update
Bearing "Fruits" From Hell Itself, part one
This is the first of a two-part series. Today's article deals with the continued exaltation of ecumania by Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI and his conciliar officials. Tomorrow's final part will focus on well-meaning efforts of some very sincere Catholics in the conciliar structures to "correct" their "pope's" ecumenical bent and to find a "correct" interpretation of the "Second" Vatican Council. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Saint Timothy, pray for us.
Also uploaded to this site are two audio lectures, given yesterday, Sunday, January 23, 2011, the Third Sunday after the Epiphany and the Commemorations of Saint Raymund of Pennafort and of Saint Emerentiana:
Audio Lecture: Living in the Shadow of the Cross, part 3 (fifty-four minutes) and
Audio Lecture: Living in the Shadow of the Cross, part 4 (twenty-nine minutes). Both lectures deal with the nature of dogmatic truth and how it has been under attack by Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI.
Evening update: Tomorrow's article will not appear until the latter part of the afternoon. The discomfort caused by the frostbitten toes has impeded with what the ancients would have called sleep. Thanks for your patience. All to thee, Blessed Mother. All to thy Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, we love you. Save souls. It is certainly a joy to be blessed with crosses as they are the path of love that Our Lord has marked out for us to serve Him through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of His Most Blessed Mother. Deo gratias!
January 22 Articles and Evening Update
"Legal" Baby-Killing Can Never Be Safe or Rare and
Republished: Thirty-Seven Years of Indifference
The hour is very late. It is my hope and prayer that, be it within the Providence of God, the frostbitten toes that appear to be permanently scarred will permit me a bit of what the ancients would call "sleep." Regardless, and, yes, penance is better than ever in 2011, here are two articles, one new, the other republished, on this, the thirty-eighth anniversary of the decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States of America in the cases of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton.
We should, if it is at all possible, spend time in prayer before Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's Real Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament today, making reparation to Him through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary for the crimes against the Fifth and Sixth Commandments that have occurred, crimes that have been made more possible, of course, because the conciliar revolutionaries, starting with the conciliar "popes" themselves, have seen fit to break openly and unrepentantly the First and Second Commandment, thus far. We ask Our Lady by means of her Most Holy Rosary to beg her Divine Son, Christ the King, for the conversion of our own beloved nation to His Social Reign. It is only the restoration of Christendom as the fruit of the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and thus the vanquishing of the lords of Modernity in the world and Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism that will see an end to the daily slaughter of babies and souls that take place under cover of the civil law. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Saints Vincent and Anastasius, pray for us.
Evening update: The new article for today, Legal Baby-Killing Can Never Be Safe or Rare, has been expanded slightly. "Traffic" on this site is rarely heavy on the weekends. Those who are accessing this article for first the time will be able to read it in its final form.
The next original article on this site will appear on Monday, January 24, 2011. Its completion today was impeded by the quite literal "crash" of the "universal serial bus--usb" device that connects this computer to the internet, necessitating a drive to Danbury, Connecticut, to get a different device that works without being attached to the computer. Yes, indeed, penance is better than ever in 2011. Assuming that it is God's Holy Will for me to arise tomorrow morning and that I am thus able to give my next lecture tomorrow afternoon, I will have another two audio lectures, which are in the mp3 format and can be downloaded directly into your own computers or hand held devices, posted by Monday. Thank you.
January 21 Article
Heathens Believe in Their Own Might, We Believe in Christ the King
Just another article on how nations whose leaders ignore the Social Reign of Christ the King are no different than the heathen nations of yore who trusted in their own might to make the "better" world. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Saint Agnes, pray for us.
A reflection on the thirty-eighth anniversary of the decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States of America in the cases of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton will be published tomorrow, January 22, 2011.
January 20 Audio Lectures
Although it had been my intention to post the 2011 version of my "Living in the Shadow of the Cross" lecture program to the Christ or Chaos store, the inescapable fact is that almost no one would purchase the lectures even for a nominal fee if I placed them there. The other material in the store has collected a lot of dust in the past nearly three years now.
Thus, trusting in the Providence of God and the intercession of His Most Blessed Mother and of her Most Chaste Spouse, Good Saint Joseph, to help us in temporal needs, I have decided to post the audio presentations on this site without charge. It is the dissemination of the material that matters.
Two segments were recorded on January 9, 2011. They were broken into fifty-nine minute and thirty-one minute segments because of a break caused by the need for a change of the digital cartridge in the video camera that was being used to video record the lecture. The lecture itself dealt with the nature of truth, both natural and supernatural. It will be continued on Sunday, January 23, 2011.
Here are the links to the lectures:
Audio Lecture: Living in the Shadow of the Cross, part 1 and
Audio Lecture: Living in the Shadow of the Cross, part 2.
Having figured out how to download the audio from the digital audio recorder purchased a few months ago (I am very "low tech:), I intend to do more audio recordings on a regular basis to review various news events in light of the points that I have made endlessly on this site. I should, though, have new articles posted for each of the next two days, including on the thirty-eighth anniversary 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 19 Article
From Sharp Focus to Fuzziness
Well, here is another article that took longer to write than I had anticipated. This one is a relatively brief discussion of the "general audience address" that Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI gave a week ago today, that is, on Wednesday, January 12, 2011, in which the false "pontiff" discussed Purgatory in relation to the writings of Saint Catherine of Genoa. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Saint Marius and Companions, pray for us. Saint Canute, King of Denmark, pray for us.
Check back tomorrow for the next original article on this site. Please do read the update that was posted yesterday and digest the important material that has been put together by Mr. Mario Derksen for the sake of unity among Catholics who do not accept the legitimacy of Joseph Ratzinger as a true and legitimate Successor of Saint Peter.
As I learned yesterday, Tuesday, January 18, 2011, that it would cost between $150-$600 to repair the top of this home page, I have added links to the Speaking Schedule and Articles pages above. I do not have the technical ability to repair the page on my own. And, obviously, I have no money to pay for the repairs. Indeed, we have almost no money to pay any bills at this time. Thus it is that I update the Donations page yet again.
All to thee, Blessed Mother. All to thy Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, we love you. Save souls!
January 18 Update
Although I am working on the next article for this site, I do want to give an unqualified endorsement to a new website,
ThucBishops.com, that has been created by Mr. Mario Derksen, a much respected Catholic writer.
Mr. Derksen began work years ago, he informs me, to provide a detailed and definitive refutation of the position advanced by His Excellency Bishop Clarence Kelly, the founder of the Society of Saint Pius V. Mr. Derksen's position paper, which runs one hundred one pages (there is a five page summary also to be found on his new website), is much needed as many of us have been "pulled aside" multiple times by priests of the Society of Saint Pius V to be "reminded" of their thoroughly unjust rules that prohibit the distribution of Holy Communion to Catholics who are associated with and receive the Sacraments from clergy "who derive their orders in part or in whole from the line of the late Archbishop Pierre Martin Ngo Dinh Thuc."
As one who once doubted the validity of the Thuc line consecrations, principally because of the advice offered by an anti-sedevacantist presbyter operating independently of and in opposition to the conciliar structures, I had to resolve this matter for myself five years ago when I was doing my due diligence to investigate the legitimacy of the claim that the conciliar "popes" were not legitimate Successors of Saint Peter, whose Chair at Rome is the liturgical feast we celebrate today (and commemorate in the traditional Chair of Unity Octave (see The Daily Catholic website for links to the daily prayers for this Octave). Satisfied that I had been in error concerning the validity of the Thuc line consecrations in my "resist but recognize" days that were drawing to a close at this time five years ago now, I then discovered the divisions among the clergy who do not mention the name of the conciliar "pontiff" in the Canon of the Mass. It was a minefield to negotiate. It remains a minefield for many.
It is my prayer that this important work of Mr. Mario Derksen will help to resolve this matter once and for all in order to bring an end to at least one of the needless divisions among the underground Catholic clergy who have true orders that keeps so many people from accepting the truth that those who defect knowingly from even one point of the Catholic Faith have expelled themselves from the bosom of Holy Mother Church and cannot hold her ecclesiastical offices legitimately. Divisions and difficulties on other matters will remain, sad to say, human nature being what it is. Perhaps the bishops and clergy of the Society of Saint Pius V will take a serious look at Mr. Derksen's important piece of Catholic scholarship, which exposes examples of intellectual dishonesty and gratuitous assertions that have no foundation in principle or fact, and make it possible for Catholics who dissent from not one whit of the Deposit of Faith and simply want to get home to Heaven to receive the Sacraments from their priestly hands at the offerings of Holy Mass they provide Holy Mother Church today with such dignity, decorum, glory and honor. Our Lady of Prompt Succor, pray for us. Saints Peter Paul, pray for us. Saint Prisca, pray for us. Pope Saint Pius V, pray for us.
I hope to have the next original article posted later this afternoon. Thank you.

"Beatifying" Yet Another Conciliar Revolutionary
Although much more could be written on the subject (other articles about which have been published on this site), this is but a brief effort, replete with appendices, to discuss the official news that Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI will "beatify" Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II on Sunday, May 1, 2011. The hour is very late. I will try to have another original article posted by some time late tomorrow afternoon, Tuesday, January 18, 2011, the Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter at Rome. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Saint Antony the Abbot, pray for us.
I am glad to be the bearer of good news. The Reverend Mister Michael Oswalt was ordained to the subdiaconate by His Excellency Bishop Mark A. Pivarunas, CMRI, on Saturday, January 15, 2011, at Mount Saint Michael Church in Spokane, Washington. Please pray for the Reverend Mr. Oswalt as he continues his study for conditional ordination to the priesthood. Congratulations, Reverend Mr. Michael Oswalt! We are praying for you.
Finally, I came across two useful articles discussing the conciliar rite of priestly ordination. The articles originated, evidently, within the Society of Saint Pius X. There are some very good points made in these articles, recognizing, of course, that the Society of Saint Pius X no longer recommends the conditional ordination of conciliar presbyters. How time does change one's perspective, eh? Anyhow, here are the links to those two articles: Doubtfulness of New Catholic Ordination Rite and Comparison of Old and New Catholic Rites of Ordination to the Priesthood.
Sorry for the delay in the publication of the article today.
Late Evening January 15 Update
Yes, something bad has happened to the top of this home page. It is my hope that the experts at the company that hosts this website will repair the damage on Monday or Tuesday.
Secondly, it's been slow going on the work completing my article on the pending "beatification" of Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II. It turns out that I contracted frostbite, which I thought was a fungal infection, of my feet during the winter cold here in Connecticut (and sloshing around the streets of Manhattan on December 29, 2010, three days after the blizzard that had hit the northeast, did not help matters at all). This wonderfully painful affliction, given to me by the good God so that I can glorify Him and seek to make reparation to Him for my sins through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, has slowed down my work a little bit. I do hope to have that new article posted on Monday, January 17, 2011. Thank you for your patience.
January 14 Article and Evening Update
Unity and Peace Cannot Be Based in Error and Falsehood, part two
Yesterday's commentary, posted around 3:00 p.m. because most of Wednesday, January 12, 2011, was spent shoveling twenty-seven inches of snow in our part of Connecticut, dealt with Barack Hussein Obama's naturalism and religious indifferentism. It's Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI's turn once again today as this article focuses on his continued support for "religious liberty" and his call for "Assisi III," if you will. This is certainly a time of great chastisement. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Saint Hilary of Poitiers, pray for us. Saint Felix, Martyr, for us.
If press reports are to believed, a space in the Basilica of Saint Peter in the Vatican is being readied to receive the transferred remains of Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II after his supposedly forthcoming "beatification." Although I will have a commentary on this matter should it come to pass with an official announcement from the Vatican, the few of you who read these articles can be referred to
"Canonizing" A Man Who Protected Moral Derelicts from April of last year. For the press reports about the possible immanence of the "beatification" of John Paul II, see the stories at Rome Reports and Benedict Set to Beatify John Paul II.)
Evening Update: As I was up rather late last evening completing the article for today's posting, my next article, which will deal with the pending "beatification" of Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II, will not be completed until tomorrow evening, Saturday, January 15, 2011, the Feast of Saint Paul the Hermit and the Commemoration of Saint Maurus the Abbot.
Finally, Father Francis Miller, O.F.M., has sent out a text message to inform Catholics that the mortal remains of the late Father Leonard Giardina, O.S.B., the founding abbot of Christ the King Abbey in Cullman, Alabama, will be buried on Monday, January 17, 2011, on the grounds of the abbey. The burial will take place at 10:00 a.m., Central Standard Time. Father Francis is asking that for a good showing of Catholics for Father Abbot's burial. Let us continue to pray for the repose of the late +Abbot Leonard Giardina's immortal soul and for the needs of Christ the King Abbey at this time and into the future.

Unity and Peace Cannot Be Based in Error and Falsehood, part one
All manner of "conservatives" are praising President Barack Hussein Obama's remarks in Tucson, Arizona, last evening. You will find no such praise in this brief article. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Unrepentant Sin Coarsens Discourse and Conduct
A brief follow-up to yesterday's article, which was expanded in several places after its original posting.
It's really past my bedtime.
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
January 11 Article
All Falls Apart Absent Christ the King
Although much of what is written in this new article has been written many times in the past, this is a new composition to provide a bit of Catholic reflection on the tragic shootings that took place in Tucson, Arizona, on Saturday, January 8, 2011, at the hands of a determined, calculated, cold-blooded killer. Men and their nations must fall into neo-barbarism and worse is they do not submit themselves to the sweet yoke of the Social Reign of Christ the King as It must be exercised by the Catholic Church. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Pope Saint Hyginus, pray for us.
Let us continue to pray for the souls of those killed in Tucson as well for the recovery of those who were injured.
There should be another new article tomorrow, January 12, 2011.
January 10 Commentary and Prayer Requests
As my lecture yesterday afternoon got me home a little too late to start my article on the tragedy that took place in Tucson, Arizona, on Saturday January 8, 2011, I do want to offer a brief comment and ask for your prayers for the intentions listed below.
The tragic shooting that took place in an alcove outside of a Safeway supermarket in the La Toscana Village part of Tucson, Arizona, on Saturday is being exploited by all of the usual suspects to paint anyone who opposes the statist policies of the administration of President Barack Hussein Obama and Vice President Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., as guilty of extremism that incites the likes of Jared Lee Loughner to plan and execute cold-blooded schemes of murder. This is the same sort of rhetoric that was employed by professional naturalists of the "leftist" bent after Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols executed their own deadly attack in the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Office Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, on April 19, 1995.
Then President William Jefferson Blythe Clinton exploited that tragedy for his own purposes, helping to beat back efforts by the new Republican majority in both Houses of the 104th Congress to hold down the projected rate of growth of Federal entitlement expenditures. It is certain that Barack Hussein Obama and others of his own "leftist" brand of naturalism will do the same this time, perhaps, however in more subtle tones than being used by some of "leftist" bomb-throwers in the pundit class, people who always blame the "right" for acts of violence that are the result, proximately speaking, of the prevalence of sin in the world and the lack of Sanctifying Grace as men are left to deal with social problems on their own without a clue as to First and Last Things. We are to pray for the conversion of those in public life who support various evils, not surrender to nihilism by violating the Fifth Commandment and, quite possibly, depriving souls who could have converted to the true Faith before they died to have done so. This will be discussed in greater detail in my article, which will appear late tomorrow evening.
Let us continue to pray for the victims of the shooting, including United States Representative Gabrielle Giffords (D-Arizona), and the six people who were killed, including United States District Court Judge John Roll, a Catholic who was the Chief Judge of the United States District Court for Arizona, and the thirteen others who were wounded.
Among those killed was nine year-old Christina Green, the granddaughter of Dallas Green, now seventy-six years of age, a former pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies and, briefly in 1966, the New York Mets. Dallas Green went on to manage the Phillies, the New York Yankees and the Mets, and I admired his determination to get his players to concentrate on essentials that so many were forgetting. He was always so very nice to me during his time as Mets' manager from May 20, 1993, to August 31, 1996. We spoke last about nine years ago when my baseball book was published. His murdered granddaughter sang in the choir of Saint Odilia Roman Catholic Church in Tucson, Arizona. Please for the repose of her soul and for the consolation of her grieving parents and grandparents at this time.
Word reached me late on Saturday, January 8, 2011, that Mr. Ernie Nellenbach, a longtime parishioner of and a most devoted volunteer at Saint Gertrude the Great Church in West Chester, Ohio, died on Saturday, January 8, 2011. Mr. Nellenbach was a meek, humble, selfless man who assisted at Holy Mass every day and spent much time in prayer before Our Blessed Lord and Saviour in His Real Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament. He devoted almost all of his free time to the service of the church, filling numerous and sundry roles, including driving Bishop Daniel Dolan long distances to various mission locations for the offering of Holy Mass. Please pray for the repose of the immortal soul of the late +Mr. Ernie Nellenbach and for the consolation of wife and family at this time.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and all of the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
Finally, word was also received late Saturday evening that there will be a Low Requiem Mass (not a High Mass) for the founder of Christ the King Abbey, the late +Abbot Leonard Giardina, O.S.B., today, Monday, January 10, 2011, at the abbey in Cullman, Alabama, at 10::00 a.m. (Central Standard Time). The Requiem Mass will be preceded by visitation at 9:00 a.m. and the recitation of Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary at 9:30 a.m.
Please continue to pray for the late Father Abbot's immortal soul and for the intentions of the situation at Christ the King Abbey.

Revised: From Nazareth We Come, In Nazareth We Must Live
Today, the Sunday within the Octave of the Epiphany, is the Feast of the Holy Family of Nazareth.
Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ chose to become Man in His Most Blessed Mother's Virginal and Immaculate Womb by the power of the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, and place Himself, the Co-Equal and Co-Eternal Son of God the Father, under subjection to mere creatures His Most Blessed Mother, the fairest flower of our race, and to Good Saint Joseph, his foster-father. The subjection of the God-Man to the authority of His Most Blessed Mother and his foster-father, whom He had chosen from all eternity to provide Him with the earthly love and care and stewardship of a father seeking only to please God with his every thought, word an deed, teaches us that we, who came from families and who, in many instances, are raising families of our own, must be subject to all legitimate authority, duly constituted, in all things that do not pertain to sinful commands.
Children are supposed to learn this subjection in the household from their tenderest days, seeing in their fathers the image of Saint Joseph and in their mothers the image of Our Lady. Children are supposed to realize that God in the very Flesh obeyed His creatures in the Holy Family of Nazareth. So must they.
Parents must, for their part, foster an atmosphere within the family of selflessness, charity, forgiveness and joy, centering the family's life on daily assistance at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass (if at all possible), regular time spent in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament, the daily recitation of Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary, supplications to Our Lady's Most Chaste Spouse, Saint Joseph, home enthronement to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Total Consecration to Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the same Immaculate Heart of Mary, Scriptural reading and family reading time, especially about the lives of the saints, and a refusal to participate in the rot of popular culture. This requires sacrifice and the willingness to be misunderstood, calumniated and rejected even by one's own family members as we protect our children from those cultural currents that come from the devil and are designed to lead each of us to Hell for all eternity.
To eschew worldliness one must be ready to embrace the Holy Poverty of the Holy Family of Nazareth, detaching oneself from the material acquisitiveness of our consumer society, shaped by Judeo-Calvinist materialism, and to live in light of First Things and Last Things as we week to acquire the only thing that matters: Sanctifying Grace in this life and eternal life in the glory of the Beatific Vision of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost in Heaven.
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, we love you, save souls!
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, pray for us now and in death's agony.
There should be an original article posted tomorrow, January 10, 2010. It will deal with the tragic shooting that took place north of Tucson, Arizona, yesterday, Saturday, January 8, 2010. Let us pray for the deceased and for the wounded and their families.
Finally, I ask your continued prayers for the repose of the soul of the late +Abbot Leonard Giardina, O.S.B., and for the needs of Christ the King Abbey. Unlike other situations that I have had, most unfortunately, to offer commentaries upon, I have no direct, first-hand knowledge or involvement in the events that have unfolded at Christ the King Abbey. I am but bystander who is praying for the intentions of the abbey at this time. Let us remember the needs of Christ the King Abbey in our Rosaries today, the Feast of the Holy Family.
January 8 Article and Prayer Request for Repose of the Immortal Soul of the late +Abbot Leonard Giardina, O.S.B.
"Lucky" Mario May Not Be So "Lucky" In The End
The hour is late. I have to arise early to shovel snow so that we can to Holy Mass in the morning. The article is short. It is informative. I trust that you will read it, correct? Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
It was after this page was updated and I had turned off my notebook computer that I noticed a text message from Father Francis Miller, O.F.M., informing me of the death last evening, Friday, January 7, 2011, at 7:00 p.m., Central Standard Time, of the late +Abbot Leonard Giardina, O.S.B. Please do pray for the blessed repose of his immortal soul.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and all of the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
January 7 Article and Urgent Prayer Request for Abbot Leonard Giardina, O.S.B.
With A Shrug of the "Papal" Shoulders
Will the "papal" nomination to the "Pontifical" Academy of Sciences of an open supporter of baby-killing and perversity stand the criticism from "conservative" Catholics in the conciliar structures that is sure to occur? Perhaps the nomination of Dr. Miguel Nicolelis will be rescinded. Perhaps not, however, as Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI has shown us repeatedly that he is fully capable of giving a "papal" shrug of the shoulders when faced with apostasy and error and sacrilege. Indeed, he expects us to shrug our shoulders when he commits apostasy and spreads errors aplenty and commits sacrilege. Why should it be any different with the nomination of Dr. Miguel Nicolelis? Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
Prayer request for Abbot Leonard Giardina: Father Francis Miller, O.F.M., has informed me that Abbot Leonard Giardina, O.S.B., of Christ the King Abbey in Cullman, Alabama, is not expected to live through the day. Please do pray to Saint Joseph, the Patron of the Dying, for Abbot Leonard to have a holy death. He has received the Sacrament of Extreme Unction. Let us help this good priest on his path to eternity by praying the
Three Very Beautiful Prayers for the Dying. Our Lady, pray for Abbot Leonard Giardina at this, the hour of his death. Saint Joseph, pray for Abbot Leonard Giardina. Saint Benedict, pray for Abbot Leonard Giardina. Saint Leonard of Port Maurice, pray for Abbot Leonard Giardina.

Another Year of the Same Conciliar Apostasy, part three
This is the third and concluding part of the series that began on Monday, January 3, 2011. It is relatively short. Why wait? Read it now.
Republished: Manifesting Christ the King At All Times
Our Lord was made manifest on Christmas Day to the handful of Jewish people, including the shepherds in the field who were sent to adore Him by the angels who had announced the following:
And there were in the same country shepherds watching, and keeping the night watches over their flock. And behold an angel of the Lord stood by them, and the brightness of God shone round about them; and they feared with a great fear. And the angel said to them: Fear not; for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, that shall be to all the people:
For, this day, is born to you a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord, in the city of David. And this shall be a sign unto you. You shall find the infant wrapped in swaddling clothes, and laid in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly army, praising God, and saying: Glory to God in the highest; and on earth peace to men of good will. And it came to pass, after the angels departed from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another: Let us go over to Bethlehem, and let us see this word that is come to pass, which the Lord hath shewed to us.
And they came with haste; and they found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger. And seeing, they understood of the word that had been spoken to them concerning this child.And all that heard, wondered; and at those things that were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these words, pondering them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God, for all the things they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. (Luke 2: 6-20.)
Today's feast, the Feast of the Epiphany of Our Lord, known colloquially in Ireland as "Little Christmas" and in many other places as Three Kings' Day, celebrates Our Lord's manifestation to the whole world through the Gentiles. Indeed, the Offertory for today's Mass explains that all kings shall adore Christ King and that all nations shall serve Him:
The kings of Tharsis and the islands shall offer presents: the kings of the Arabians and of Saba shall bring gifts: and all kings of the earth shall adore Him: all nations shall serve Him.
The United States of America is no exception to this. We must pray for the day when the leaders of this country, founded on the falsehoods of Protestantism and Judeo-Masonry that are so hateful to Our King, will adore Him as their King and the day when this nation will serve Him as it acknowledges His Social Kingship over it by submitting in all that pertains to the good of souls to the authority of the Catholic Church that He Himself founded upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope. We are suffering at the hands of statists today because the men of Modernity who believed that they had no obligation to offer public worship to Christ the King through His true Church set us on a course that can result only in the triumph of the civil state over the King of Kings Who was made manifest to Saints Caspar, Melchior, and Balthasar on this day. We must make Him manifest in our own lives at at all times, never fearing to suffer in behalf of the truths of the Holy Faith or to suffer in the cause of justice when souls are placed into jeopardy needlessly even by some of our own true shepherds.
Finally, I will begin a series of bi-weekly lectures in the "old board room" of the C. H. Booth Public Library, 25 Main Street, Newtown, Connecticut, starting on Sunday, January 9, 2011. The lectures will run from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. I will be presenting an updated version of my "Living in the Shadow of the Cross" lecture program that I gave across the country in 2000 and 2001. It is my intention to audio record the presentations and to make them available for purchase at the little-used Christ or Chaos store. (Put my poisonous name on something, folks, and it will be little used, little read and little purchased! Deo gratias!) I anticipate that this program will consist of twenty-six two hour presentations. It will run, God willing and Our Lady interceding, throughout the course of this calendar year. The second lecture will be given on Sunday, January 23, 2011, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
A blessed Feast of the Epiphany of Our Lord to you all! Another original article will appear tomorrow, January 7, 2011.
January 5 Article
Close Ideological Kinsmen
There has been a great deal of silence from the administration of President Barack Hussein Obama concerning the consolidation of power by Hugo Chavez in Venezuela, Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua and Evo Morales in Bolivia, to say nothing of the return to quasi-Stalinist rule in the Russian Federation that is being orchestrated by Vladimir Putin and the continued totalitarian rule of the Chicoms in Red China. After all, close ideological kinsmen must stick together, if only by their conspiracy of silence. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us. Pope Saint Telesphorus, pray for us.
The concluding part of "Another Year of the Same Conciliar Apostasy" will appear tomorrow, the Feast of the Epiphany of Our Lord, along with a republished article on the feast itself.
January 4 Article
Another Year of the Same Conciliar Apostasy, part two
For the multitudes out there in cyberspace who have been waiting for part two of the article posted yesterday, well, good multitudes, your wait is over at long last. This installment deals with efforts on the part of the conciliar revolutionaries to "update" the liturgies of the Uniat Rites of the East as they continue to try to find a way to "adjust" the exercise of Papal Primacy to the liking of their fellow ecumaniacs in the Orthodox churches. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Holy Innocents, pray for us.
The final installment in this series should appear tomorrow, the Vigil of the Epiphany of Our Lord, or on the Feast of the Epiphany itself. Regardless as to the date of the appearance of that final installment of the current series of articles, there should be another original article on this site tomorrow dealing with a different matter.
January 3 Article
Another Year of the Same Conciliar Apostasy, part one
Am I really consigned to writing another 256 articles this year? Really? Well, it sure looks as though I will be kept somewhat busy this year as the false "pontiff," Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, continues his warfare against the Catholic Faith, this time in his "2011 World Day of Peace Message" whose theme was "religious freedom" as the path to peace. Part two of this article should be published tomorrow. It will deal with the spirit of concilairism at work in the world. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Saint John the Evangelist, pray for us.
