On the Commemoration of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Our Protectress

[July 17, 2024, Update: Although I have not been watching any of the video coverage of the celebration of the adversary's minions at the Republican National Convention, I have read quite enough about what is happening there, thank you very much. I am writing an extensive commentary on the blasphemies and sacrileges that have been committed at this convocation of the cult of Donald John Trump at which his vice presidential running mate, James David Vance, has bowed down at the altar of sodomy and diversity by speaking to the pro-sodomite organization called the Log Cabin Republicans. The commentary will probably appear tomorrow, Friday, July 19, 2024, the Feast of Saint Vincent de Paul, but there is a chance that it might be appear until Sunday, July 21, 2024, the Ninth Sunday after Pentecost.

[After that commentary is posted, however, I will be done with commentaries about this diabolical farce unless Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., is replaced with a younger, more articulate advocate of totalitarianism. For the moment, though, be careful about what you wish as it is always the case that One Devil Goes, Another One Enters.]

Today's commemorated Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel represents what tremendous love that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ has for us by sending us His Most Blessed Mother to give us a sacramental by which we are clothed in the garment of her Brown Scapular, which serves as a particular protection at the moment of death if we have been faithful to all of the conditions of our enrollment.

Our Lord has permitted His Most Blessed Mother to give us so many aids to get home to Heaven--the Rosary, the Brown Scapular, the Miraculous Medal, the Green Scapular, devotion to her Immaculate Heart as part of her Fatima Message.

We must wear our Brown Scapular of Mount Carmel constantly as we bear witness as best we can that we have been given a loving Mother in Heaven who intercedes for us to live in such a way in this passing, mortal vale of tears that we will always be ready to die and have her pleading for us nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen."

Let us continue to pray for each other and for Holy Mother Church in this time of apostasy and betrayal as we shield ourselves in Our Lady's garment of the Mount Scapular and pray with fervor and devotion her Most Holy Rosary every day. I beg your prayers also for our daughter on the occasion of the sixteenth anniversary of her Confirmation.

A new commentary, Unity in Error is No Unity At All, was published about eight hours ago.

A blessed  Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel to you all!

Our Lady of Mount Carmel, pray for us.

Saint Simon Stock, pray for us.

Unity in Error is No Unity At All

The title is self-explanatory. 

My annual reflection on the Commemoration of Our Lady of Mount Carmel will appear in about seven or eight hours, and the commentary about the meaninglessness of politcal party platforms will be published in about twenty-four hours, I hope and pray.

Thank you.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel, pray for us.

Saint Henry the Emperor, pray for us.


On the Feast of Saint Henry, Holy Roman Emperor

This is a reflection in honor of my own Confirmation patron saint, Saint Henry the Emperor, on his feast day. Saint Henry was a superb exemplar of the Social Reign of Christ the King who sought to foster peace among men by promoting the missionary work of Holy Mother Church in parts of central and eastern Europe at the beginning of the Second Millennium. He knew that Catholicism was the one and only foundation of personal and social order, seeking at all times to honor Christ the King and Mary our Immaculate Queen.

May we plead with him this day and every day to help us to see the world more clearly through the eyes of the Catholic Faith as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, He Who is the King of every man and every nation on the face of this earth without any exception whatsoever, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Another commentary the assassination attempt on the life of former President Donald John Trump will appear later today, followed by the commentay about the meaningless nature of political party platforms around this time tomorrow, Tuesday, July 16, 2024, the Commemoration of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. (My internet connection has improved somewhat since my last posting.) 

Our Lady of Mount Carmel, pray for us.

The Adversary is Always Prowling About the World to Foment Hatred and Violence

The hatred of the adversary for us is such that he, having failed in his rebellion against God before the beginning of the world, wants to do the next best thing, that is, to inspire hatred in the souls of men to drive to hate, insult, injure, wound, and kill each other in the hope that they will persevere in such hatred until they die and thus spend all eternity in hell with him to be tormented by his hatred of them, their hatred for each other, and for their hatred for themsel

To Reconcile Sinners One Unto the Other: Saint John Gualbert

I am offering you a  revised reflection on the holy life and work of Saint John Gualbert that was written many a moon ago. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint John Gualbert, pray for us.

Saints Nabor and Felix, pray for us.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio Has a Burning Hatred for Catholic Faith, Worship, and Morals

This title is self-explanatory.

The next original commentary should appear by Sunday, July 14, 2024, the Eighth Sunday after Pentecost and the Commemoration of Saint Bonaventure. 

Although I am still not commenting on the absurd situation unfolding before our very eyes concerning whether a man in serious cognitive decline will be replaced by his fellow criminals of the organized crime family of the false opposite of the naturalist left, the next commentary on this site with deal with Donald John Trump's success in assuring that the Republican Party platform's language about abortion is "gentler and kinder," shall we say, than in the past. This craven concession to expediency might win votes, but it does do the cause of fundamental justice founded in truth any good at all. This is what happens when the "lesser of two evils" meets up with the supposed "greater of two evils." 

Finally, although seveal people have responded to private appeals for non-deductible financial gifs that have been made of them, it sure would be nice if more those who read these articles and profit from them and have the financial wherewithal to help could much such non-deductible gifts at this time.

Thank you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Rufina and Secunda, pray for us.

The Seven Holy Brothers, pray for us.

A Day of Martyrs for the Cause of the True Faith and Saints of Purity and Charity

I offer you todaya revised commentary on the feasts (Saints John Fisher and Thomas More, the Martyrs of Gorkum. Saint Maria Goretti, and Saint Veronica Giuliani) that are celebrated in some places even though they are not on the General Roman calendar of the Catholic Church.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, pray for us.

Saints Thomas More and John Fisher, pray for us.

Saint Maria Goretti, pray for us.

Saint Veronica Giuliani, pray for us.

Saint John of Cologne, O.P., and the Martyrs of Gorkum, pray for us.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio is Collecting Scalps

This commentary is about the "excommunication" of "Archbishop" Carlo Maria Vigano.

It is my hope to have another commentary on Tuesday, July 9, 2024, or Wednesday, July 10, 2024.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Elizabeth of Portugal, pray for us.

Imprudent Actions Have Consequences

Late night update on July 5, 2024: I am suspending work on my next commentary because of the conciliar "excommunication" of "Archbishop" Carlo Maria Vigano, which requires more time to conplete than is prudent for me to attempt after many late night articles in the past few weeks. Unlike the decrepit old man in the White House who cannot even remember if he watched a reply of his debate with his predecessor just eight days ago, my hours of alertness are not limited to six hours a day, but eighteen hour days are harder than they were a decade ago. Thus, I will get back to the computer tomorrow afternoon, the Octave Day of the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul. Thank you for  your patience and I invite anyone who benefits from the work of this site and who has the financial wherwithal to do so to make non-tax-deductible financial gifts at this time.


This commentary is about the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States of America in the case of Donald J. Trump, Petitioner v. United States, July 1, 2024.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Anthony Mary Zaccaria, pray for us.

Dehumanize the Preborn, Dehumanize the Victims of Illegal Immigrants' Crimes

The title is self-explanatory. Indeed, it will have to be self-explanatory as I have not fully recovered from the writing the spate of articles recently.

Nonetheless, though, I will be back at the computer later today, the Feast of Pope Saint Leo II within the Octave of the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, to start writing my commentary about the decision rendered by the Supreme Court of the United States of America on Monday, July 1, 2024, the Feast of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus, concerning presidential immunity from criminal prosecution for their official acts and conduct. I hope to have it published by tomorrow, July 4, 2024, but it may not be published until Friday, July 5, 2024, the Feast of Saint Anthony Mary Zaccaria withint he Octave of the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul. Thank you for your patience.

Speaking of patience, I have been patiently awaiting non-tax-deductible financial gifts from those who access this site, suppport its work, and have the financial wherewithal to contribute financially to the continuation of my work. Thank you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Pope Saint Leo II, pray for us.

Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.
