A Reflection on Saint Aloysius Gonzaga: Apostle of Charity, Modesty, Purity, Humility and Penance

Although part of this revised and expanded reflection was included in the article that I published twenty-two hours ago, I believe that it is appropriate, especially given my own attachment and devotion to Saint Aloysius Gonzaga since entering Saint Aloysius School in Great Neck, New York, on September 10, 1956, to present this reflection to you even though most of the few people who access this site will be doing so on the Feast of Saint Paulinas of Nola.

Saint Aloysius Gonzaga was a great lover of the Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in His Real Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament and of Our Lady. Saint Aloysius was intensely united to the sufferings that Our Lord endured in His Passion and Death, offering up his own sufferings prior to death, sufferings that he contracted as a result of helping a man with the plague in Rome, in union with that of Our Lord's own Passion and Death.

Saint Aloysius was also devoted to the angels, which makes sense as he had an angelic purity of his own. We need to invoke his holy intercession to help us to have as a pure a heart as he did as we attempt to make reparation to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary for our own sins, especially any and all against Holy Purity.

As it was at the aforementioned Saint Aloysius School in Great Neck, New York, where I learned the truths of the Catholic Faith as they were taught with clarity by the Reverend Sisters of Mercy (and one lay teacher, Miss Greta McCarthy, a young Irish immigrant who knew the Holy Faith very well, who became Mrs. Greta Foley after the end of the 1961-1962 school year; she died in 2012), I owe Saint Aloysius so very much. I have been devoted to him from the time that I entered Kindergarten in September of 1956.

Much is going on now. I intend to have several articles published before the end of the month, although none will appear until Sunday as the Feast of Saint Paulinus of Nola will be spent running erands for the family.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Get Off The Throne, You Fake, Phony, Fraud, Bergoglio

Well, the conciliar revolutionaries have come up with another “working document” prior to the 2018 “synod of bishops” on young people.

Herewith is an extensive commentary on a news story that appeared in the National Catholic Distorter Reporter. A brief reflection on the life of Saint Aloysius, whose angelic purity stands in contrast to the filth and indecency promoted—and in many cases practiced—by the conciliar revolutionaries (see McCarrick, Theodore, for example; there will be a commentary about him soon enough), led by the fake, phony, fraud “pope” named Jorge Mario Bergolio.

This commentary was revised abut thirteen hours after its initial posting. Several typographical errors were corrected and two paragraphs added near the end of the text.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Aloysius Gonzaga, S.J., pray for us.

Sober Up, part thirteen

This commentary has taken four full days to produce.

As I have noted in the past, articles take time, and time is not my friend these days. My work is entirely contingent on the availability of time and my own physical strength, which is simply not what it was even a few years ago. Penance is the only path to Heaven. Deo gratias!

The current commentary explores the whitewash report issued on Thursday, June 14, 2018, the Feast of Saint Basil the Great, by United States Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

Count me as the proverbial “ant at the picnic,” but the mere fact that there has been and continues be efforts on the part of deep state apparatchiks to thwart the election of Donald John Trump and, failing at this, to undermine his administration by making it appear as though his perfectly legitimate election is illicit because of the “Russian Collusion fantasy” cannot blind us to the fact that various evils have been promoted by the current administration.

This website exists to remind reader that Catholicism is the one and only foundation of personal and social order, and it does not matter how few people understand or accept this—nor how many donors drop their support. Truth is what is, and the truth that naturalism can produce only one thing, naturalism, whether at a lesser or more accelerated pace.

Viva Cristo Rey!

Viva La Virgen de Guadulupe!

On the Feast of Saint Basil the Great: "Perhaps You Have Not Met A Catholic Bishop Before"

[An original article, Who Will Rise to the Defense of Our Lady?, was published late yesterday afternoon.]

Today's republished article, which was written eight years ago now and revised again this year, attempts to draw comparisons between Saint Basil the Great's battles with the Arians and our own battles with the lords of the counterfeit church of conciliarism and their apologists. I had forgotten, prior to re-reading the article, just how many little nuggets from Dom Prosper Gueranger's The Liturgical Year are contained in its text.

Here is one just nugget:

"Peace is just what Basil desired as much as anybody; but the peace for which he would give his life could be only that true peace left to the Church by our Lord. What he so vigorously exacted on the grounds of faith proceeded solely from his very love of peace. And therefore, as he himself tells us, he absolutely refused to enter into communion with those narrow-minded men who dread nothing so much as a clear, precise expression of dogma; in his eyes their captious formulas and ungraspable shiftings were but the action of hypocrites, in whose company he would scorn to approach God's altar. As to those miserably misled, 'Let the faith of our fathers be proposed to them with all tenderness and charity; if they will assent thereunto, let us receive them into our midst; in other cases, let us dwell with ourselves alone, regardless of numbers; and let us keep aloof from equivocating souls, who are not possessed of that simplicity without guile, indispensably required in the early days of the Gospel from all who would approach to the the faith. The believers, so it is written, had but one heart and one soul. Let those, therefore, who would reproach us for not desiring pacification, mark well who are the real authors of the disturbance and so not point the question of reconciliation on our side any more.'"(Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., The Liturgical Year.) 

The authors of disturbance today are not those of us who point out the errors and blasphemes and sacrileges of the conciliar "popes," including Jorge Mario Bergoglio, but those who are silent about and/or enable these offenses, a silence that prevails these days among so many "conservative" and "traditionally-minded" priests and presbyters in the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Basil the Great, pray for us.

Who Will Rise to the Defense of Our Lady?

One of the things that I have thought about repeatedly since posting Antichrist Has Shown Us His Calling Card over a month ago now is how priests/presbyters in the Motu world can claim the moral and theological “high ground” against “schismatics” who recognize that heretics cannot serve as true and legitimate Successors of Saint Peter remain absolutely stone-cold silent when their “pope” blasphemes the Mother of God.

This very brief commentary is meant to elaborate on that silence in the face of blasphemies against the Mother of God that also offend Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Who Himself has been blasphemed on multiple occasions by Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Anthony of Padua, pray for us.

On the Feast of Saint Anthony, the Hammer of Heretics

Today is the Feast of Saint Anthony of Padua, the Hammer of Heretics, who desired to die a martyr's death in an effort to convert Mohammedans following his transfer from the Order of Saint Augustine to the Order of Friars Minor. It was not God's Holy Will for Saint Anthony to die a martyr's death as he became ill upon arriving in Morocco and was then led as a result of shipwreck away from his native Portugal to Sicily, and from there to Italy, where his fame as a preacher and miracle worker began. (Saint Anthony’s desire to convert Mohammedans, of course, is not the spirit of the blaspheming heretics who constitute the hierarchy of the counterfeit church of conciliarism.)

Saint Anthony lived for only thirty-six years, teaching us that it is not the length of the years that matter. No, what matters to God is how we use the time given to us this very day, which could be our own last day on the face of this earth before our Particular Judgment, to know, love, and serve Him as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively through the Catholic Church. God is merciful to those of us who have sinned much by giving us length of years so that we might use our time well to make much reparation to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary for our sins.

Saint Anthony's work on earth was done when he was just thirty-six years old, whereupon his work for us in Heaven commenced. Dear, dear Saint Anthony, help us to find our way to Heaven, especially by being as devoted to the Most Blessed Sacrament and to the Mother of God as you were here on earth.

The next original article will be published by late this afternoon.

A blessed feast of Saint Anthony to you all!

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Anthony of Padua, pray for us.

The Green Jorge Strikes Again

The Green Jorge, who is ever so quiet when it comes to the daily slaugher of the innocent preborn--and who has given his full endorsement to the George Soros-funded schema of "palliative care" that dispatches innocent human beings in the name of "compassion," has spoken once again about "sustainable development goals." This is but a brief rejoinder.

Oh, speaking of the nefarious Soros, have you read that the Soros Fund Management owns a fifteen percent share in the horse that just won the Belmont Stakes and thus the triple crown of American thoroughbred horseracing, Justify? Yup.  See: A Secretive Investor in Justify: George Soros.

Another Bergoglio-related commentary is in the works. "Sober Up," part thirteen, will await the issuance of Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report on Thursday, June 14, 2018, the Feast of Saint Basil the Great.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

On the (Transferred) Feast of the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary

This is a revised reflection in honor of the of the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which was instituted by Pope Pius XII in 1954. This feast is annually on May 31 at the conclusion of the month of May, which is the month of Our Lady, but is transferred this to this day, the first free date following the superseding Octave of the the Solemnity of Corpus Christi.

Every person on the face of this earth is called to honor Mary our Immaculate Queen. Every nation on this earth is called to give public honor to the Queen of Heaven and of Earth, Our Lady, she who made possible our very salvation by her perfect Fiat to the Holy Will of God the Father at the Annunciation. It is fitting that we end her month, the month of May, with this great feast as we hope end our lives with the help of her prayers so that we can enjoy an unending Easter Sunday of glory in Paradise as we give all adoration and worship to the Most Blessed Trinity and give her our due love, honor and gratitude.

Our Lady, Queen of Heaven and of Earth, pray for us.

Saints Primus and Felician, pray for us.

 An original article should be appear tomorrow

Living in A Supremely Absurd World

As it is now about forty minutes after Midnight on the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, there is time only to note that the current article is a commentary on the absurdities contained in the case of Masterpiece Cakemakers v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, June 4, 2018.

I also want to call to the attention of those who access this site even in its relatively dormant state four reflections on today’s glorious feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus: The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus: Remedy for the Cruelty of An Evil Age, Enthroning the True and Unsurpassed Love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus In Our Homes, Tender Mercies and No One Is A Stranger to the Sacred Heart.

A blessed Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus to you all!

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.

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

Saint Boniface: The Apostle of Germany

Before providing a brief introduction to this republished reflection on the life and missionary work of Saint Boniface, the Apostle of Germany, I want to apologize for the continued length of time between original articles. It would belabor the point to provide a daily medical bulletin, but a number of afflictions—some chronic, others of recent vintage that are by their nation chronic—have slowed me down considerably.

As I have noted on other occasions recently, I need to have most of a full day to complete a new article. The next such day will be tomorrow, the Seventh Day in the Octave of the Solemnity of Corpus Christi and the Commemoration of Saint Norbert, as I complete work on a commentary about yesterday’s decision of the Supreme Court of the United States of America in the case of Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd., et al. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, et al. Although a temporary reprieve for the owners of Masterpiece Cakeshop, the entire decision is premised on the acceptance of a legally recognized and protected class of citizens based solely upon their propensity to commit the sin of Sodom and its related vices. A nation whose laws do not recognize the binding nature of the Divine Law and the Natural Law as they have been entrusted to the teaching authority of the Catholic Church for their infallible and authoritative interpretation will wind up with situations wherein judges find themselves flummoxed by the intersection of the very secular principles that have gotten us to this point of absurdity.

Yes, I have read the entire decision and the concurring and dissenting opinions. Public Law (Constitutional Law, Administrative Law) was one of the minor fields in which I was examined prior to being granted permission to proceed with the doctoral dissertation forty-three years ago, and I taught it for thirty years. Thus it is that I have a few things to say on the decision and it absurdity. It is my expectation to have the article completed for posting by Thursday.

Once again, I apologize the slowness of original articles. I am doing the best that I can under the circumstances. Thanks for your understanding. Penance is truly better than ever in 2018, and I need all the penance that Our Lord desires to send me.

Today's republished offering is abrief reflection on the missionary work of Saint Boniface, the Apostle to Germany, who stands as a rebuke to the conciliar "popes" and their embrace of false religions. 

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

 

Saint Boniface, pray for us.
