Stare Decisis Has No Standing in the Court of Christ the King

Although it had been my intention originally to include a section on the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States of America in Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia, June 15, 2020, in this particular commentary, the hour is late and there is more than enough material in this article about the decision of the Supreme Court  of the United States of America in the case of June Medical Services v. Russo, June 29, 2020, to keep you busy for a day or two. However, I do expect that the commentary on the Bostock case should be posted on Saturday, July 4, 2020, the Commemoration of All Holy Roman Pontiffs during the Octave of the Feasts of Saints Peter and Paul.

A republished commentary on the Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary can be found at: Magnificat.

The Laver of Redemption (2020)

[A commentary on two recent decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States of America is being written. Barring any unforeseen complications, the commentary should be published by tomorrow morning on the Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Please scroll below for information on my latest book,  see The Battle Over the Oyster Bay-Rye Bridge: Defeating Nelson Rockefeller and Preserving Long Island Sound.]

The Most Precious Blood of Jesus is our laver of redemption, as our own sins, each and every single one of them, caused It to be shed during the events of Holy Thursday and Good Friday.

It was the thought of coming into contact with the horror of our sins, the very antithesis of His Sacred Divinity, that caused Our Lord to sweat droplets of His Most Precious Blood in His Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane.

It was our sins that caused the Most Precious Blood of Jesus to be shed so terribly during His cruel scourging at the Pillar.

It was our sins that caused the Most Precious Blood of Jesus to be shed as He was crowned with thorns to mock His Sacred Kingship over men and their nations.

It was our sins that caused the Most Precious Blood of Jesus to continue to be shed from the scourging and the crowning as He walked up the steps to be judged by the Roman procurator, Pontius Pilate. Droplets of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus are still venerated by pilgrims as proceed on their knees up the Sancta Scala in Rome right across from the Basilica di San Giovanni Laterano.

It was our sins that caused the Most Precious Blood to be shed as Our Lord’s hands and knees were crucified. It was our sins that caused the Most Precious Blood of Jesus to be shed unto Its last drop as He hung on the gibbet of the Holy Holy Cross for three hours, flowing in a torrent as Our Lord’s wounded side was pierced with the lance of Saint Longinus.

What is It that is poured out onto our souls when they are Absolved by a true priest in the Sacred Tribunal of Penance?

The Most Precious Blood of Jesus.

The Most Precious Blood of Jesus strengthens us when we receive It worthily in Holy Communion.

It was the shedding of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus on the wood of the Holy Cross that ratified the New and Eternal Covenant He inaugurated at the Last Supper, thereby obliterating forever the old sacrifices of the blood of bulls and goats and lambs in Temple worship, thus superseding he Old Covenant of the Jews.

We must celebrate this great Feast of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus, which was pumped through Our Divine Redeemer’s Sacred Body by His Most Sacred Heart, the very font of Mercy, with gratitude that we, sinners who caused It to be shed in torrents under the most unspeakably cruel conditions, are bathed unto our redemption by Its merits.

May we never take the Most Precious Blood of Jesus for granted.

A blessed Feast of the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ to you all!

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.

 

Saint John the Baptist, pray for us.

Counterfeit Church, Counterfeit Sacraments, Counterfeit Teaching, Counterfeit Everything, part one

A conciliar apologist named Sergio Certofani has endeavored to write a shallow response to “refute,” albeit indirectly and without naming him, Father Carlos Maria Vigano’s recent statement about the rise of “parallel church” since the “Second” Vatican Council. Certofani’s article, which appeared on the Vatican News website, is replete with sophisms and straw man arguments. This article is an effort to deal with Certofani’s inanities.

Finally, commendations must be offered publicly to my former colleague, Christopher A. Ferrara, acting in his capacity as a special counsel for the Thomas More Society, for securing a temporary injunction from United States Judge Gary Sharpe to order the statist trio of Andrew Mark Cuomo, Letitia James and Warren Wilhelm/Warren deBlasio Wilhem/Bill deBlasio to permit the opening of churches in the State of New York after they had permitted protestors and rioters to gather together in massive numbers following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Mr. Ferrara, who understands the nature of the plandemic taking place at this time, did a superb job, and he is to be commended by all Catholics of good will.

Saint John the Baptist: The Antithesis of Jorge Mario Bergoglio

[Update on the Octave Day of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Commemoration of Saints John and Paul within the Octave of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist: Work on my next original article is nearly complete. The hour, however, is late, and I need at least four or five more hours to write the conclusion and then to format it for publication on this platform. 

[In the meantime, however, in addition to the completion of my newest book and the commencement of the promotional work in its behalf, I want to inform the readers of this site that an article dealing with many of the developments in the absurd world of naturalism will be forthcoming in about two weeks after part two of the new commentary is completed by the middle of next week. Given all that is happening witih the Plandemic right now, though, it appears that part six of "Sin: More Deadly Than the Coronavirus" may have to be written next month as time permits. An anthology on matters pertaining to the medical industry and the proper care of the sick is also being prepared at this time.

[Finally, an article by Dr. Joseph Mercola has caught my attention, and I hereby call it to the attention of this site's readers: Why Social Distancing Should Not Be the New Normal ]

This very brief reflection demonstrates the contrast between the purity and zeal for the conversion of sinners exhibited by the last of the Old Testament Prophets, Saint John the Baptist, with the impurity of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who is content to "accompany" unrepentant sinners in the name of a false "mercy" that can lead both him and those he indemnifies to eternal perdition. A longer reflection, , is archived on this site and was included in the text of To Live in Light of Eternity, Volume 3, which, of course, is still available for purchase in paperback or Kindle formats.

Speaking of books, the revised version of my doctoral dissertation, The Battle Over the Oyster Bay-Rye Bridge: Defeating Nelson Rockefeller and Preserving Long Island Sound, is now available for purchase in both ebook and paperback formats. The book, which is an examination of how two ad hoc, single-purpose political interest groups gradually built what they called "picket fences" from 1964 to 1973 to isolate Governor Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller in his quest to build a bridge over Long Island Sound, contains an author's afterword of interest to Catholics and has a foreword written by a former academic colleague. Obviously, the book will not be of interest to many readers of this site. However, a few may find the narrative of the intrigue, which was documented by the researching of primary sources and first-hand interviews of seventy-six people involved in the controversy in one form or another, interesting to read.

Finally, yes, work continues on the next conciliarism-related article.

Father Francis X. Weninger's Third Sermon for the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

As John Glover Roberts had a busy week doing his best imitation of the late Earl Warren, who as the Chief Positivist and Deconstructionist of the United States of America from October 5, 1953, to June 23, 1969 (a wonderful day-after high school graduation gift for me), I can going to hold off on publishing any commentary about Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia, and the other decisions rendered by the Supreme Court of the United States of America last week until the decision in the case of June Medical Services v. Russo has been rendered. There is no sense writing two needlessly repetitious commentaries in such a short span of time.

After all, although I will do soon again after the decision in the June Medical Services v. Russo case, how many times can I remind readers that the Constitution of the United States of America, which admits of no higher authority than its own text for judicial interpretation and application, is as defenseless in the hands of legal positivists as Holy Writ is in the hands of Protestants and Modernist Catholics? Men who do not recognize the binding precepts of the Divine Law and the Natural Law and submit to Holy Mother Church’s infallible teaching about their interpretation will wind up descending to the depths of the abyss. Naturalism leads to only one result over the course of time: tyranny, which arises from the chaos engendered by refusing to recognize Christ the King as He has revealed Himself exclusively through His Catholic Church and, concomitantly, refusing to cooperate with the supernatural helps she alone has to provide men for their sanctification and salvation, upon which the entirety of social order depends.

As the work uploading “The Battle over the Oyster Bay-Bridge Controversy: Defeating Nelson Rockefeller and Preserving Long Island Sound” is almost complete—and as I commence work on a long commentary dealing with Father Carlo Maria Vigano’s statement admitting the existence of a “parallel church” that has been referred to on this site since 2006 as the “counterfeit church of conciliarism that will take several days to complete, I offer this website’s few remaining readers Father Francis X. Weninger’s “Third Sermon for the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.” The concluding section of the commentary on Father Vigano will contain an explication of this sermon.

On the Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus

Today's feast, which was extended to the universal church by Pope Pius IX, is the result of at least six centuries of devotion to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus that culminated with the apparitions of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque at the height of Jansenism in the late-Seventeenth Century. 

None of us deserves the mercies of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Yet it is that Our Divine Redeemer does indeed shower us with those mercies if we approach Him with a contrite heart, especially by making regular use of the Sacred Tribunal Penance to make good, integral confessions of our sins to a true priest as we promise to amend our lives, to do penance and to sin no more. We are loved by Love Himself. We are loved particularly by Love Incarnate, Who died for us on the wood of the Holy Cross to redeem us.

Our Lord's love for us is an act of His Divine Will, the ultimate expression of which is the salvation of our immortal souls as members of His Catholic Church. What an obligation we have to return love unto Love Himself as we seek to serve Him as His consecrated slaves through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

What happened to my promised commentary on Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia?

Good question.

I have been busy preparing an updated and revised version of my doctoral dissertation for publication, a project that has required whatever attention I could give to it on any particular day. As it has turned out, John Glover Roberts has had a busy week protecting the work of the District of Columbia swampland, a reality that will expand the scope of the commentary that I had hoped to have published yesterday, the Octave Day of Corpus Christi and the Commememoration of Saint Ephrem the Deacon and the Commemoration of Saints Mark and Marcillianus. It is now my hope to have the next commentary published by Sunday within the Octave of the Sacred Heart and the Commemoration of Saint Aloysius Gonazaga, S. J.

A blessed Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus to you all.

Our Lady of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us.

Commentary on Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia, Coming by Thursday

As I am still in the process of finalizing the formatting of my next book project, a commentary on the all-too-predictable decision of the Supreme Court of the United States of America in the case of Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia, June 15, 2020, will not appear until the Octave Day of the Feast of Corpus Christ and the Commemoration of Saint Ephrem the Deacon, Thursday, June 18, 2020. It is my hope that the book project will be available for purchase by those who might be interested in its topic on the Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. (There will be a commentary on latest from Father Carlo Maria Vigano by the beginning of next week.)

The next commentary could have several possible titles, including "Earl Warren Is Alive and Well and on the Supreme Court" or "A New Motto on the Supreme Court Building: "Abandon AllHope, Ye Who Enter Here."

As I noted in part five of "Sin: More Deadly Than the Coronavirus," the Supreme Court of the United States of America, as presently constituted, will upheld any and all "vaccination mandates" issued to provide fake "immunity" to a virus that kills only 0.37% of those it infects.

There is no hope for us other than in the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Sin: More Deadly Than the Coronavirus, part five

[This commentary was revised somewhat on Sunday, June 14, 2020, Sunday within the Octave of Corpus Christi and the Commemoration of Saint Basil the Great, to include an additional piece of information as well as link to another article.]

Well, the Feast of Corpus Christi has now turned into the Friday within this great feast's octave (and the commemorations of Saint John of San Facundo and of Saints Basilides, Cyrinius, Nabor and Nazarius), and the only strength that this author has left at this point is to post this part five of "Sin: More Deadly Than the Coronavirus," which I hope will be the last installment in this series.

It is my present intention to write two more commentaries for this site this month as I continue to work on book projects, one of which should be ready for publication next week. One of the two articles with deal with Father Carlo Vigano's discovery that there has been a "parallel church" since the "Second" Vatican Council without his coming to the logical conclusion that must follow from such a discovery and the other article will be part two of "Naturally Absurd," which will be a lengthy commentary on the political absurdities of the moment going back to the impeachment trial and the "national prayer breakfast" the day after its conclusion and continuing to the present time.

Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament, pray for us.

On the Feast of Corpus Christi

Today is the great Feast of Corpus Christi. This article, written a long time ago now and slightly revised over the years, is an exhortation to the readers of this site to spend more and more time in adoration before Our Beloved before His Real Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament if this is at all possible in your area. 

Adoration is the first end of prayer, including the perfect prayer that is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in which Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ becomes Incarnate under the appearances of bread and wine when a men man, uttering mere words over the elements of the earth, calls Him down from Heaven. We must adore God with our whole mind, soul, heart, body and strength. To spend time before the Most Blessed Sacrament in prayer is a foretaste of Heavenly glories.
 
Our goal in life is to behold the glory of the Beatific Vision of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost for all eternity in the company of Our Lady, Saint Joseph, our Guardian Angels (each of whom beholds the Beatific Vision as he tries to guide us home to Heaven!), our patron saints and all of the members of the Church Triumph, whose ranks we hope and pray will include our dearest and nearest relatives and friends.
 
We must make time for the foretaste of Heavenly glories by means of profound Eucharistic Adoration in this life is we want to enjoy the glories of Heaven itself for all eternity. There are infused graces that are flooded into the souls of those who spend time in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament, those souls who are conscious of the need to make reparation for their sins as they give thanksgiving to God for all of the favors, both spiritual and temporal, they have received and who recognize the need to petition God for the favors we need, both spiritual temporal, starting with an earnest petition each day that we be given the grace to have a holy and sacramentally-provided-for death. 
 
Our Lord stands ready to send us this infusion of graces through the loving hands of His Most Blessed Mother, who is mystically with us when we pray before her Divine Son’s Real Presence. All we need to do is to arrange our lives in such a way as to make time for prayer before Our Eucharistic King and Lord. 
 
We must, of course, be conscious of our need to get to the Sacrament of Penance on a weekly basis in order that our reception of Our Lord’s Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity in Holy Communion will be worthy and fervent. The frequent, devout and worthy reception of Our Lord in Holy Communion gives strength even to those souls who have been steeped in one sin after another, those souls who have refused to surrender to the devil’s attacks upon them over the years: 
 
And then come, and accuse me, saith the Lord: if your sins be as scarlet, they shall be made as white as snow: and if they be red as crimson, they shall be white as wool. If you be willing, and will hearken to me, you shall eat the good things of the land. (Isaias 1: 18-19.) 
 
We must ask Our Lady on this great feast day of Corpus Christi, which, of course, is celebrated as an Octave in those chapels that use the Missal of Saint Pius V before it was “reformed” by the revolutionary efforts of Annibale Bugnini and Ferdinando Antonelli in the 1950s, to help give us more and more graces to recognize the Most Sacred Heart of her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, beats for with great love in the Most Blessed Sacrament. 
 
We must ask Our Lady to help us approach the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart with such fervor and devotion that we will consider it as a great loss if ever there is a day we are unable to get a true offering of Holy Mass and unable to spend at least some time with her Divine Son, Who is the Prisoner of Love in tabernacles today just as He was the Prisoner of her Virginal and Immaculate Womb from the time of His Incarnation to the day of His Nativity.
 
We must also thank Our Lord and His Most Blessed Mother for our true bishops and true priests who make it possible for us to have the Sacraments in this time of apostasy and betrayal, remembering to pray that more young men will have the courage to renounce the world and study to become an alter Christus so that he, acting in persona Christi in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, can make Our Lord present in the Most Blessed Sacrament and to bless us with that Most Blessed Sacrament on great feast days such as this one. 
 
Finally, work continued on part five of "Sin: More Deadly Than the Coronavirus" until just before reposting this reflection. There is still a considerable bit of work to do in the next-to-last section of the commentary that might not make it possible to post before Saturday, June 13, 2020. Keep checking as there is a possibility for it to be posted tomorrow, Friday, June 12, 2020. Thank you,

A blessed Feast of Corpus Christi to you all!

Today should be devoted entirely to gratitude to Eucharistic King for the great gift of Himself in Holy Communion and our ability worship Him in His Real Presence even though He sitteth at the right hand of God the Father in Heaven. 

What a mystery of love. 
 
Words fail. 

Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament, pray for us. 

Saint Barnabas (whose feast is suppressed this year), pray for us.
