Not Exactly from the Excommunication Scene in Becket

Salvatore Cordileone, the conciliar “archbishop” of San Francisco, has banned Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Nancy Patricia D’Alesandro Pelosi from receiving what purports to be “Holy Communion” in the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical abomination.

This commentary assesses Cordileone’s actions and assesses them in light of the fact that his “pope,” Jorge Mario Bergoglio, authorized the prefect of the misnamed Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith to warn the American “bishops” about denying what is thought to be Holy Communion to anyone in public life who supports the slicing and dicing of the innocent unborn.

Although I have two other commentaries to write in the few days, such work will be put aside if the Supreme Court of the United States of America announces its ruling in the case of Thomas Dobbs, Mississippi Health Commissioner v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization today, Monday, May 23, 2022, Rogation Monday and, in some places, the Feast of Saint John Baptist de Rossi.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Jorge's Expendables

Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton has her "deplorables," and I contend that her ideological soul mate, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, has his "expendables," that is, those within his conciliar clergy who are not "open" to "progress" and criticize him openly. 

One of these is the retired conciliar "archbishop" of Hong Kong, Joseph Zen, whose arrest last week was denounced even by the United States Department of State but only with a mild statement of regret from the conciliar Vatican's secretairy of state, Pietro The Red Parolin, and complete silence from Jorge Mario The Red Bergoglio, whose silence has emboldened the Chicom tyrants to do anything they want without any fear of "papal" condemnation.

Pray for our true pope daily.

Revised: A Call to Action from Mrs. Randy Engel of the U.S. Coalition to Life: Defend the Humanity of the Unborn Child

Mrs. Randy Engel, the founder and director of the U.S. Coalition for Life, which is the oldest pro-life research organization in the world, has issued a call for citizens to write to the Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States of America to refocus the Court’s attention on the humanity of the unborn child. She has included a number of excellent points for the composition of such letters.

Although the letters are not like to affect the outcome of the Court’s decision in the case of Thomas Dobbs, State Health Commissioner v. Jackson Women’s Organization, they can singe the consciences of a justice or two, especially the Catholics on the Court who are content to let the “the people” “decide” that over which they have no authority. The binding precepts of the Fifth Commandment.

Merchants of Murder and Mendacity, part two was published after Midnight on Monday, May 16, 2022, the Feast of Saint Ubaldus and (in some places) the Feast of Saint John Neupomocene.

Merchants of Murder and Mendacity, part two

As strong storms are heading our way, all that I shall write at the moment is that, at long last, I hereby present to you part two of “Merchants of Murder and Mendacity.”

If the Supreme Court of the United States of America issues its decision in the case of Thomas Dobbs, Mississippi State Health Officer, v. Jackson Women’s Organization today, as some believe is possible, my commentary, which will take some days to complete, will focus on the dissenting opinions as there will be no need to do anything except summarize the points about Associate Justice Samuel Alito’s opinion, the draft version of which may be, allowing for various changes to address the dissenting opinions, what the substance of his issued opinion looks like.

Barring that, however, the next article on this site will deal with the recent arrest of Joseph “Cardinal” Zen by the Communist authorities in Hong Kong, followed by another article on the killing of the innocents in Ukraine and then part eighteen of “Sin: More Dangerous Than the Coronavirus.”

Finally, Mrs. Randy Engel, the founder and director of the U.S. Coalition for Life, that I have formatted and published. Please scroll below for her alert. Than you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Ubaldus, pray for us.

More Tragic Victims of Modernity's Hatred of Christ the King

This is a brief "root causes" reflection of the horrific massacre that took place in Buffalo, New York, yesterday, May 14, 2022, Our Lady's Saturday in Paschaltide and the Commemoration of Saint Boniface Martyr.

Another day of writing is needed for part two of "Merchants of Murder and Mendacity." Indeed, work continued on it until shortly before the posting of this commentary and will continue later this afternoon,

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint John Baptist de la Salle, pray for us.

Saint Robert Bellarmine: Sermon Sixty-Eight: On Tribulations (Parts One and Two)

This Feast of Saint Robert Bellarmine is an excellent opportunity to give readers of this website access to Saint Robert Bellarmine's two-part sermon On Tribulations. 

The text of the Saint Robert Bellarmine's sermon can be found below Father Kenneth Baker's synopsis of it. Our Saint's explanation of the tribulations that must afflict all men during their lifetimes here in this mortal vale of tears is very timely in our age of barbarism and statism, of amorality, hedonism, rank materialism and the worship of everything except the true God of Divine Revelation, the Most Holy Trinity.

Please say a Hail Mary for Sharon, who transcribed the text below from Sermons of St. Robert Bellarmine, S.J., Sermons 68, On Tribulation, translated from the Latin by Father Kenneth Baker, S.J., and published in 2017 by Keep the Faith, Inc., Ramsey, New Jersey.

Today is also the one hundred fifth anniversary of Our Lady's first apparition to Jacinta and Francisco Marto and their cousin Lucia dos Santos in the Covia da Iria near Fatima, Portugal. An article from 2020 explains the importance of Our Lady's  Fatima apparitions and why they have been attacked so relentlessly by the conciliar officials: .

Work proceeds quite methodically on part two of Merchants of Murder and Mendacity. My prognosticating abilities concerning when articles will be complete are nonexistent these days. Reasonably speaking, though, I may need another three full days of writing. Thank you.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.

Saint Robert Bellarmine, S.J., pray for us.

Merchants of Murder and Mendacity

The clock is about to strike twelve midnight and to quote the fictional Lucille Ricardo as she stomped grapes with a feed in a vat, "I am a poop-ed."

This commentary is part one of a two-part study of the unprecedented leak of a draft opinion written by a justice of the Supreme Court of the United States of America. 

Part two, which should be published by Thursday, May 12, 2022, the Feast of Saints Nereus, Pancratius, Achelleus, and Domatilla, will examine the draft opinion itself and its ramifications.

Thank you for your patience as there were many unexpected penances within the past week, including raising funds privately for a new outside air conditioning unit after the one we had took a direct hit from lightning during violent storms on Thursday, May 5, 2022, the Feast of Pope Saint Pius V. 

Penance is indeed better than ever in 2022.

All to thee, Blessed Mother. All to thy Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, I love you. Save souls!

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Gregory Nazianzen, pray for us.

Pope Saint Pius V: Our Rigid Foe of Heresy and All False Religions

This is a republished version of a reflection on the saintly life and work of  the great Dominican, Pope Saint Pius X, who is indeed quite a contrast to the life and the work of the conciliar revolutionaries. 

Work continues on my commentary about the Supreme Court leaker.  

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Pope Saint Pius V pray for us.

We Must Never Live In Fear With Saint Joseph So Near

Today is the Solemnity of Saint Joseph in Paschaltide, a feast that originated under the title of “The Patronage of Saint Joseph” in 1847 by Pope Pius IX before being given its current name in 1911 and then repositioned two years later on the Wednesday following the Second Sunday after Easter by Pope Saint Pius X. This reflection is by way of an annual reminder, slightly revised, to trust in Saint Joseph, the Patron of the Universal Church and the Protector of the Faithful, in these times of persecution by the forces of Antichrist in the world and in the counterfeit church of conciliarism. 

Obviously, the unprecedented leak of a draft opinion in the case of Thomas Dobbs, State Health Officer of the Mississippi Department of Health, et al. v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, et al. is generating a great deal of commentary. I have begun work on my own commentary, which I hope to complete tomorrow for posting on Friday, pushing back the other commentary upon which I have been working for another day or so. Thank you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church and Protector of the Faithful, pray for us.

Total Consecration to Our Lord through Our Lady's Immaculate Heart

Although I was once known for producing a prodigious number of articles each month, I have known for some time now that the days of prolific writing are well behind me. My next original commentary should appear by Wednesday, May 4, 2022, the Solemnity of Saint Joseph in Paschaltide.

On this second day of the month of May, the month of Our Lady, which is the Feast of Saint Athanasius, I am republishing a reflection on Total Consecration to the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary that was first published in the printed pages of Christ or Chaos twenty years ago this month.

Although there is absolutely nothing profound contained in this reflection, I do hope that it helps to serve as a modest introduction to the topic of total consecration to Our Lady for those who are unfamiliar with the benefits that accrue to those who enslave themselves to her Divine Son through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Athanasius, pray for us.
