Jorge's Band of Theological Racketeers Legitimize Paul Ehrlich

Although I am working on both parts eight and nine of “Sober Up” (part nine also concludes “Jerusalem Belongs to Christ the King”), the announcement that the discredited population control advocate, Dr. Paul Ehrlich, will speak at an upcoming conference on “Biological Extinction” under the aegis of the counterfeit church of conciliarism required a bit of attention.

Men Continue To Love The Darkness Rather Than the Light of the Gentiles, Christ the King

The beating of a mentally disabled man by four barbarians in Chicago, Illinois, has been the subject of much commentary, none of which has made the connection between the systematic warfare against Christ the King and His true Church and the rise of barbaric acts of violence committed upon innocent human beings after birth, to say nothing of the barbaric acts of violence committed by “civilized” medical “professionals” upon the innocent preborn in the sanctuaries of their mothers’ wombs. This commentary is a relatively brief way of reminding the readers of this site to keep focused on root causes as the conflicts between the false opposites of the naturalist “left” and “right that are now at a fever pitch are diversions from the adversary to distract us from the fact that one brand of naturalism can never be used to retard the evils associated with another brand of naturalism. Catholicism is the one and only means of human salvation and of all genuine social order. I am sorry for the delay in posting this article as the entire week thus far has been spent dealing with our furnace, which stopped working during cold weather six nights ago, and problems with our 2008 used minivan. There should be time later today, Thursday, January 12, 2017, to finish “Sober Up, part seven,” before completing “Jerusalem Belongs to Christ the King and His true Church. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

The Model for All Families: The Holy Family

[Late evening update: Monday, January 9, 2017: The next commentary, which is about the savagely brutal assault conducted by four blacks upon a disabled white man who was known to be a supporter of President-elected Donald John Trump, in President Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro's adopted home city of Chicago, Illinois, where black on black homicides are the order of the day, sadly, is progressing. However, the article, which is nearing completion, has been delayed by the complete breakdown of our furnace and the fact that, as God's Providence would have it, the front end of our car is need of work once again. These crosses have been perfectly fitted for us by the loving hand of God from all eternity for His greater honor and glory and for our sanctification as the consecrated slaves of His Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. We are grateful for our crosses. Penance is indeed better than ever in 2017! Deo graitas! Thanks for your patience.]

Sunday within the Octave of the Epiphany of Our Lord, was the Feast of the Holy Family of Nazareth and the Commemoration of the First Sunday after the Epiphany.

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 Father, Son and Holy Ghost in Heaven.

An original article, "Decadent Is The World To Describe Conciliarism, Not Scholasticism," was published yesterday morning after 1:00 a.m. Please scroll below for its link.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, we love you, save souls!

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, pray for us now and in death's agony.

A blessed Feast of the Holy Family of Nazareth to you all.

Decadent Is The Word To Describe Conciliarism, Not Scholasticism

Jorge Mario Bergoglio recently denounced a "decadent" Scholasticisim.

Although there is nothing really new about this (and noting that there is a good analysis of Beroglio's denuncation at Novus Ordo Watch Wire), I have gone to considerable length to demonstrate to the few remaining readers of this website Bergoglio is, quite of course, just a little bit at odds with the true teaching of the Catholic Church.

I am sorry for the delay in getting this posted. A search for some kind of employment occupies a good deal of my time as unexpected expenses (a furnace that is failing, for example, and the front end of our car that has to be repaired because of the effects of poor road conditions) cannot be met by the few very generous souls who continue to support the work of this site. However, I did work on this article throughout the week, and I hope that a few of you will take the time to read it.

Work continues on my next article as transcription of important textual material nears completion.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Manifesting Himself To The Gentiles and Thus to the World

[The lack of a new article in the past four days does not signify that no work is being done for the next article. Indeed, transcription is being done for one article and another, which is nearing completion, is being written as circumstances permit. There are only so many hours in the day, and to be as thorough as I want requires time. Again, I thank you for your patience. Today's posting is a revised reflection on the Feast of the Epiphany of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.]

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.

A blessed Feast of the Epiphany of Our Lord to you all!

2017: Another Year to Serve Christ the King Through The Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary

This is a reprise of a reflection on the start of the new calendar year that last appeared two years ago.

As there is a great deal of transcription that needs to be done for "Jerusalem Belongs to Christ the King, part two/Sober Up, part eight," an effort will be made tomorrow to deal with some of Jorge Mario Bergoglio's latest utterances, absolutely none of which represent anything really new. The conciliar revolutionaries have nothing new to say. However, I will offer a few comments to remind the few readers of this site of the simple fact that every aspect of the conciliar revolution and its "theological" underpinnings have been condemned by our true popes.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint John the Evangelist, pray for us.

Sober Up, part seven

As if this article did not take long enough to complete, there was a problem when I attempted to post it a short while ago.

Oh well, let me try to this again, noting that Jorge Mario Bergoglio gets a great deal of attention in this commentary, which concludes with a brief reflection on the Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus that we celebrate today, January 2, 2017.

Most Holy Name of Jesus, save us.

Most Holy Name of Jesus, have mercy on us.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.

Saint Joseph, pray for us.

The Circumcision of Our Lord Jesus Christ: To Fulfill All Righteousness

A blessed New Year 2017 of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to you!

This is a revised reflection for today's feast, the Feast of the Circumcision of Our Lord Jesus Christ, which begins the the month of January, the month of Holy Name of Jesus.

All day yesterday, Saturday, December 31, 2016, was spent working on part seven of "Sober Up." It is nearing completion, but not ready for posting at this time.

Our Lady, Mother of God, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, pray for us.

Pope Saint Sylvester: Guiding Holy Mother Church Out of the Catacombs

Pope Saint Sylvester I did not abide heresy. He did not enable it in the slightest. He confronted it as he sought the conversion of all non-Catholics to the true Faith. His firm defense of the Holy Faith as Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's Vicar on earth must inspire us in our day to seek his intercession for the needs of the Church Militant on earth as she suffers in the catacombs as pretenders to the papal throne make their open accommodations to propositions that have been anathematized time and time again in the past by true popes and/or dogmatic councils. The Church arose from the catacombs during the pontificate of Pope Saint Sylvester I. May his intercession for us now help to bring about a like arising from the catacombs in our own day as the falsehoods of the counterfeit church of conciliarism are wiped away once and for all.

Although so many Catholics in the world are without the Real Presence of Our Lord to adore, those who are so privileged in this time of apostasy and betrayal would be wise to end this year by spending time before Him in prayer as we pray our Rosaries in thanksgiving for the favors and graces received this year, in reparation for our sins and those of others this year, in petition for our spiritual and temporal needs and, of course, in adoration of the good God Who preserves our existence and Who wants us to show forth our love for Him by our fidelity to His teaching and our sorrow for our sins as members of His true Church.

A blessed New Year of Our Lord 2017 to you all.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Pope Saint Sylvester I, pray for us.

Saint Thomas a Becket: Martyr for Holy Mother Church's Liberties

There was a time when there were real, honest-to-goodness Catholic Archbishops of Canterbury. Let's see here, that would be from the time of Saint Augustine of Canterbury in 597 A.D. to the time of Reginald Cardinal Pole in 1558, a period of nearly a millennium. The fortieth legitimate Archbishop of Canterbury is the saint whose feast we celebrate today, Saint Thomas a Becket, who was indeed a martyr for the Church's liberties.

Saint Thomas a Becket asserted the rights of Christ the King as the Archbishop of Canterbury, insisting that clerics accused of civil crimes be tried in ecclesiastical, not civil, courts. This led him to clash with his onetime friend, King Henry II of the House of Plantagenet. Prefiguring another English king named Henry (this one, number The Eighth, from the House of Tudor), Henry II could not abide his former friend's resistance to his, Henry's attempt to assert royal power over the Church, leading him to uttering the words that would inspire three of his barons to murder the Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas a Becket, on this date in 1170, eight hundred thirty-nine years ago now. The latter Henry, the one called "The Eighth," had Saint Thomas a Becket's relics destroyed as his martyrdom was a reminder to one and all that the Church has Divine Rights superior to those of the civil state.

King Henry II had to do public penance for uttering the words that resulted in the martyrdom of Saint Thomas a Becket. His son, King John I, having been slow to learn the lessons of his public penance, was forced by his barons and noblemen in the year 1215 to sign the Magna Carta to guarantee the rights of the Church under civil law in England. This was a victory for the liberties of the Catholic Church that had been won by the blood of this great champion of the Social Reign of Christ the King, Saint Thomas a Becket, whose intercession we seek this day and every day for the restoration of the Social Reign of Christ the King in all nations, including the United States of America.

Indeed, the situation we face in the United States of America today is the direct result of the overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King wrought by the Protestant Revolt and the rise of Judeo-Masonry. Nations founded in the belief that men can pursue the common temporal good without subordinating themselves to the Deposit of Faith that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ entrusted exclusively to His Catholic Church for Its eternal safekeeping and infallible explications who believe that they can be "good" and "virtuous" on their own powers without belief in, access to or cooperation with Sanctifying Grace--are bound to degenerate over the course of time. Statism is the only end result of the process of decay that must occur when nations reject the simple truth that Catholicism is the one and only foundation of personal and social order. And it is the statists of the present moment, starting with Barack Hussein Obama, who sacrifice the legitimate national sovereignty and national security of their own nations in order to demonstrate their "solidarity" with "bettering" the world on a "global" basis.

A continued blessed Christmas and a blessed Feast of Saint Thomas a Becket to you all!

The kind Catholic gentleman who maintains this site for me has fixed the problem that was blocking the posting of new articles. I will spend some time this evening updating the Articles page before doing some more work on part seven of "Sober Up" so that it can be posted on Saturday, December 31, 2016, the Feast of Pope Saint Sylvester.

Our Lady, Mother of God, pray for us.

Saint Thomas a Becket, pray for us.
