Determined Not To Accept The Truth of Truth Himself, Christ the King, part three

Time ran out on me as this article took far longer to complete than I would have liked, and it is considerably into the wee hours of the morning now on Saturday, April 18, 2015. Please pardon me for letting this article speak for itself as I take my leave for a few hours of rest before resuming work on part four later day.

Thank you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Determined Not To Accept The Truth of Truth Himself, Christ the King, part two

Today, Thursday, April 16, 2015, an Easter ferial day on which there may be commemoration of Saint Benedict Joseph Labre, whose feast as such in particular places, finds part two of my current series ready for posting. This current segment is a most incomplete and perhaps even inadequate examination of the role played by officials of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, some of whom were continuing the apostate work of their Americanist predecessors in the Catholic Church, of “forming” the consciences of Catholics I public life to be follow the cowardly example of Pontius Pilate, who stood face-to-face with Truth Incarnate yet preferred to stand well with his fellow men.

As recovery still continues from the oral surgery on Tuesday, April 14, 2015, the Feast of Saint Justin Martyr and the Commemoration of Saints Tiburtius, Valerian, and Maximus, part three may not appear until Saturday, April 18, 2015, although an effort will be made to try to complete for posting by tomorrow morning.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Benedict Joseph Labre, pray for us.

Determined Not To Accept The Truth of Truth Himself, Christ the King, part one

This is part one of what will be a four part series.

This first segment deals with a punishment dealt out to a teacher at a conciliar school in New Jersey for having spoken the truth about the sin of Sodom on her “Facebook” page, which is yet further proof of the chilling effect that Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s warfare against truth and those who attempt to adhere to it as they best they can within the structures of his false church continues to have.

Although I have completed transcribing the pages from the late Archbishop Alban Goodier’s The Passion and Death of Our Lord Jesus Christ that will be used in this series, parts of the text that I transcribed will be included in each segment of this series of articles before the entire transcribed text is posted by itself for the reflection and consideration of readers.
Thank you for your patience, which must continue as part two is contingent upon how I weather the extraction of a tooth, which my dentist tells me has deep roots, on Tuesday, April 14, 2015, the Feast of Saint Justin Martyr and the Commemoration of Saints Tiburtius, Valerian and Maximus. Our Lady will send me the graces that I need, and the pain and discomfort to be experienced thereafter will be accepted with joy and gratitude as yet another opportunity to make a small bit of reparation for my many sins as the consecrated slave of her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Hermenegild, pray for us.

Low Sunday, April 13, 2015, Update

Part of the reason it is taking so long for my next original article to be posted is that I am typing up about twenty pages of text from an out-of-print book that provides invaluable reflections on the events of our day in light of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ’s examinations by Pontius Pilate. There are only four more pages to complete, at which point my commentary will be written, although the article will be divided into several parts for easier reading. 

Also, I see little need to write a new commentary on the late Frank Marshall Davis’ protégé’s chummy meeting with the butcher Raul Castro yesterday in Panama. There is really nothing more to add than I wrote four months ago in: Giving Aid and Comfort to Murderers, part one, and Giving Aid and Comfort to Murderers, part two.

Finally, one report has it that former United States Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will be announcing today that she is running for the 2016 presidential nomination of the Democratic Party. This, too, is not “news.” Hillary Rodham Clinton told voters twenty-three years that they would get “two for the price of one” if they voted for her philandering husband. There is little more that can be written about her than I have written in the past, including in numerous articles in The Wanderer between 1993 and 2001, in the printed pages of Christ or Chaos between 1996 and 2003, and on this site from 2004 to the present. Hillary Diane Rodham married William Jefferson Blythe Clinton because she believed as early as 1974 that he would be President of the United States of America, calculating that this would be her own path to power without having to place herself in the thick of electoral combat until after she left the White House with her disgraced but ever-shameless husband. The more things change, eh?

Check back tomorrow. Again, I am sorry for the delay on the new article. 

A blessed Low Sunday to you all.

April 10, 2015, Update:

No, this site has not gone dormant.

Work proceeds slowly, however, on the next original article to be posted on this site as I recover from the slight concussion that I suffered nine days ago now and as I prepare for oral surgery on Tuesday, April 14, 2015, the Feast of Saint Justin Martyr. One tooth, which is number thirty on a dental chart, is a definite goner. Another, number six, is a candidate for possible removal as well. Undertaking an article after my daily duties for the family is more difficult when it is not advisable to stay up as late as has been customary since this site went live on February 20, 2004. 

This may be the Pascal Season. The Cross, however, is always before us, remaining our one and only path to salvation as members of the Church that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ founded upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope, she it is who enjoys a complete and perpetual immunity from error and heresy. All to thee, Blessed Mother. All to thy Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, we love you. Save souls! Penance is indeed better than ever in 2015! 

I do want to draw your attention, though, to a very informative post at the Novus Ordo Watch Wire blog that centers around an observation written by Archbishop John Baptist Purcell, who was the Archbishop of Cincinnati, Ohio, from March 8, 1833, to July 4, 1883, concerning the fact that there never has been nor can there ever be such a thing as a “heretical pope.” Please see The Question of a Heretical Pope Considered by the First Vatican Council.

A continued blessed Easter Octave to you all!

Alleluia! He is Risen! 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Resurrexi, et Adhuc Tecum Sum Allelulia

Alleluia! He is Risen! Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ has made manifest His Easter Victory over sin and eternal death. “O death, where is Thy victory. O death, where is thy sting?”

We shall all indeed rise again: but we shall not all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall rise again incorruptible: and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption; and this mortal must put on immortality. And when this mortal hath put on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy victory? O death, where is thy sting?

Now the sting of death is sin: and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who hath given us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast and unmoveable; always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Cor. 15: 51-58)

Our Lord made His Easter Victory over sin and eternal death manifest first to His Most Blessed Mother, who stood so valiantly at the foot of His Most Holy Cross as she cooperated completely in His Redemptive Act, bringing us forth as the spiritual sons and daughters of the living God in great pain by means of adoption. W need to rely on the help of Our Lady as the consecrated slaves of Her Divine Son through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart so that we may persevere in a state of Sanctifying Grace with perfect contrition for our sins until the moments of our deaths so that our bodies and souls will be resurrected on the Last Day at the General Judgment of the Living and the Dead and counted among those destined for the enjoyment of an unending Easter Sunday of glory in Paradise.

Nothing else matters if we save our souls by cooperating with the graces won for us by the shedding of every single drop of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ’s Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross and that flow into our hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces. Nothing else matters if we fail to soul our souls.

This glorious day of Easter rejoicing is meant to be but a foretaste of Heaven. Let us live as redeemed creatures as we reject the naturalism of Modernity and the Modernism of the soul-killing agents of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad!

A blessed Easter Sunday to you all!

Work proceeds on my next original article, which should appear by tomorrow, Easter Monday. Thank you for your patience. Holy Week simply took precedence, and my latest concussion (a car door this time that slammed into my forehead with a fair degree of force last week limits the amount of time that can be spent on the computer. Alas, there should be that new article by tomorrow morning.

Alleluia! Christ is Risen!

A Day of Anticipation After A Night of Waiting

Silence filled the earth in the forty hours between the death of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on the wood of the Holy Cross yesterday, Good Friday, and His glorious Resurrection at dawn on Easter Sunday. Silence filled the earth as the God-Man went down into Limbo to announce the news of His Redemptive Act to the souls of the just who had awaited His Coming and His Sacrifice in atonement for the sins of all men from the beginning until the end of time.

Given the state of the Church Militant on earth during this time of papal vacancy, some Catholics, including ourselves, will be anticipating Our Lord’s Resurrection this morning. Others will be doing so this evening, No matter when the Easter Vigil is offered, however, we spend the first hours of this day (from Midnight until the Easter Vigil) continuing our prayers of gratitude as we mourn the death of Our Divine Redeemer by means of our sins.

Christ the King is the Light of the World. It is His light that is symbolized by the Easter fire that is lit at the beginning of the Easter Vigil. The Light of Christ breaks through the darkness of sin and eternal death, leading us by the fire of His bright, burning love as we continue our desert journey of life to the Promised Land of the New and Eternal Canaan made possible by His immolation on the wood of the Holy Cross yesterday, Good Friday. We must follow the Light of Christ as He, the New Moses, leads us as the first Moses led the Hebrew people as he followed a column of cloud during the day and a column of fire during the night, as we reminded once again during the Prophecies that are read during the Easter Vigil.

The Light of Christ, Our Crucified and Resurrected Saviour, will penetrate the souls of those who are baptized today and of those who are confirmed. It will penetrate the souls of those of us who were unable to receive Him in Holy Communion yesterday at the Mass of the Presanctified. It will penetrate the souls of those who are regenerated once again in the Sacred Tribunal of Penance. The Light of Christ that is symbolized by the Paschal Candle is meant to permeate every aspect of our lives without any exception at any time for any reason.

The Light of Christ has indeed broken through the darkness of sin and eternal death. Our Lord is making manifest His Easter Victory over the power of sin and eternal death. A fifty day period of glorious celebration is about to break upon us. Although the Easter Vigil is a long ceremony, eternity is forever. We can certainly spend five hours basking in the glories of the Sacred Liturgy that are, after all, a foretaste of eternal glories, can we not? The rewards are truly Heavenly, rewards that we could not have unless the Co-Eternal and Co-Equal Son obeyed His Heavenly Father out of love for him and out of love for us so that we could have access to the treasures of His Most Sacred Heart here through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

It is frstill too early to use the forbidden “A——a/” word that we have not heard since Septuagesima Sunday. However, it is not too early to look forward to its use prior to the proclamation of the Gospel during the Easter Vigil Mass.

A blessed Holy Saturday to you.

For those unable to get to a true offering of Holy Mass today, here is a listing of the services that will take place at Saint Jude Shrine in Stafford, Texas, for tonight and tomorrow:

GOOD FRIDAY 2015:

Although it is not expected that many people will access this website on this, the most solemn day of the year on which our salvation was wrought for us by the shedding of every single drop of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour’s Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross, two revised reflections, My Heart Is Ready, O Lord, My Heart Is Ready and , were published late last night. A revised version of a Good Friday reflection, The Most Solemn Day of the Year, was published after Midnight this morning.

Also, Sharon took the time to type up the prayers in The Hour of Mary in Desolation as found in The Servite Manual: BEHOLD THY MOTHER: A Collection of Devotions Chiefly in Honor of OUR LADY OF SORROWS. These prayers are to be said between 3:00 p.m. this afternoon, Good Friday, April 3, 2015, and 10:00 a.m. tomorrow, Holy Saturday, April 4, 2015.

Although it had been hoped that an original reflection might be published by today, the material that was to be used therein will be placed into the commentary to published on Easter Monday. There are “Pilates Aplenty” in the world, men and women who go to great lengths to protect the very thing that caused Our Lord to suffer unspeakable horrors in His Sacred Humanity on this very day of days, sin, and who are, at the very least, enablers of unrepentant sinners who are intent on persecuting those who denounce sin as were the Jews who demanded that Pontius Pilate put their very Saviour, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, to death on the wood of the Holy Cross.

These modern Pontius Pilates, though, have been enabled by the modern Judas Iscariots in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, starting today, of course, with Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who gladly hands over the immutable truths that Our Lord entrusted exclusively to His Catholic Church for their infallible explication and eternal safekeeping to the Talmudists as they make short work of anyone who opposes their agenda in support of evil disguised as “diversity” and “tolerance.”

This is a day of reparation and sorrow. It is also a today of great gratitude for the tender mercies of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, wounded by our sins and for our very redemption, and the love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, pierced as it was by the events that unfolded this day as the debt of our sin was paid back for us by her Divine Son and as there was effected a transfer from the Old Covenant to the New and Eternal Covenant that He had instituted at the Last Supper.

A link to live webcasts of the events of the Paschal Triduum has been provided on Novus Ordo Watch Wire Blog. The directions for accessing these webcasts are very clear. This is a great spiritual aid to those who have no access to the liturgies of the Paschal Triduum, and we should pray in gratitude to those responsible for making these webcasts available for everyone in the whole world. 

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.

Sorrowful Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.

Hour of Mary in Desolation

Thanks once again to the labors of Sharon, whoever accesses this site today, Good Friday, April 3, 2015, can avail themselves of the "Hour of Mary Desolation" prayers that are found in the Servite Manual: BEHOLD THY MOTHER. The prayers are to be said between 3:00 p.m. today and 10:00 a.m. tomorrow, Holy Saturday, April 4, 2015.

We continue to keep Our Lady company at the foot of the Cross today as we keep vigil at the sepulchre throughout the night as is possible for us to do.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.

Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour our death.
