Lawless Men At Large By An Illegal Church, part one

Completion of articles these days has become contingent upon two things that are pretty much out of my own control: (1) having a day or two with relatively few interruptions necessitated by running errands for the family; and (2) having the physical wherewithal to write at length. Yesterday, the Feast of Saint Antony of the Desert, was one of those days.

Although I have been working on part two of this two-part series for the past six days, events in Chile the past several days have served as a very useful means to put part two in a better context for the readers of this site.

Oh, the subject matter?

Well, I am going to let the commentary’s title speak for itself as it is a very late hour.

Finally, I ask for continued prayers for my health as the back injuries sustained six months ago today continue to serve as a terrific means of penance, which is part of the reason that articles are taking longer to complete. Penance, of course, is better than ever in 2018!

A blessed Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter at Rome and the commemoration of Saint Prisca to you all.

Our Lady, Queen of the Apostles, pray for us.

Saint Peter, pray for us.

Saint Paul, pray for us.

Saint Prisca, pray for us.

"Reform" For Jorge Constitutes A Rejection of Catholic Certitude, part two

[Update on the Feast of Pope Saint Marcellus I: Although I had expected the next article to be completed by now a variety of unforeseen circumstances have caused work on it to be done a little bit at a time. It is my hope to complete the article later today, Tuesday, January 16, 2018. Thank you.]

A Country Gone to Pot

No, this is still not the long article that is taking a long time to complete. Any day now. (You have to remember the old “Federal Express” commercials from thirty-six years ago to understand in what sense I have just used the phrase “any day now.”)

In light of the fact that the People’s Republic of California has become one of the latest states to legalize the sale of marijuana for “recreational purposes,” I believed it useful to revise and rework some older material for your consideration on this topic. My own unyielding opposition to marijuana dates back to its popularization by the wretched assortment of persons calling themselves the “Beatles” fifty-four years ago, and I have not budged one little bit since that time.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Caspar, Melchior and Balthazar, pray for us.

Athanasius of Kazakhstan: Not To Be Confused with Athanasius of Alexandria

This is not the article that I have been working on for the past two weeks.

However, it is sometimes easier to deal with “conservatives” in the counterfeit church of conciliarism than it is to deal with their apostate leader from Argentina. 

A slight correction this article's first paragraph that was intended to be made before its posting ten hours ago has been made. 

Well, it will back to the computer later today to try to finish that other commentary.

A blessed Feast of the Holy Family to you all.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, we love you. Save souls!

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

On the Feast of the Holy Family: 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 and 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. Finally, yes, the next article is nearly completion. Thanks for your patience.

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.

Republished: Christ the King Manifests 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 Balthazar 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!

"Reform" For Jorge Constitutes A Rejection of Catholic Certitude, part one

Ever eager to deceive souls, the adversary has been busy using his pawns to focus on the natural rather than the supernatural. Indeed, so much attention has been paid to the ongoing coup d’etat being engineered by deep state appartchiks the attention of many Catholics this past Advent was diverted from a proper preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

2018: Another New Year to Serve Christ the King Through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary

Every new day of our lives is an opportunity for us to start "fresh," if you will, as we give thanks to God for keeping us alive for another day to give Him honor and glory through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary as we adore Him in true offerings of the Holy Sacrifice Mass and as we petition Him for what we need, both spiritually and temporally.

Republished: Pope Saint Sylvester Guided Holy Mother Church Out of the Catacombs

Pope Saint Sylvester I did not abide heresy. He did not ent iable 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.

The next original article is nearing completion. 

A blessed New Year of Our Lord 2018 to you all.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Pope Saint Sylvester I, pray for us.
