Saint Elizabeth of Hungary Suffered at the Hands of Her Own Family

This is a republished reflection on the suffering endured by the very first member of the Third Order of Saint Francis of Assisi, Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, who suffered much at the hands of her family members and even at the hands of the poor whose welfare she provided so generously when her husband, Louis, was the Landgrieve of Thuringia.

My commentary on the new naturalist circus that is captivating the attention of Americans is turning out to be much longer and more detailed than I thought it would be originally. There is just a bit more work to do on the commentary today, and I also expect to have word from the printer as to estimated date of having some copies of "To Live in Light of Eternity" so that I can make them available for sale to the readership of this site. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Josaphat Kuncewicz Laid Down His Life to Do What Conciliarism Forbids

This is a republished reflection on the life and martrydom of Saint Josaphat Kuncewicz, whose feast is celebrated today.

Saint Jospahat Kuncewicz did what conciliarism forbids, namely, seeking the conversion of the heretical and schismatic Orthodox to the Catholic Church, she who is the one and only true Church founded by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope. 

The current pretender in Rome has carried on the conciliar "tradition" of claiming that the Orthodox churches are simply a branch of "Christianity." This brief reflection refutes that false contention. Indeed, the very life of Saint Jospahat Kuncewicz is a refutation of that false contention.

The next original article is progressing, although it may not be ready for publication by Monday, November 18, 2019, the Feast of the Dedication of the Basilicas of Saints Peter and Paul as it deals with the ongoing coup against the current president of the United States of America. As per usual, the article attempts to make all the proper distinctions while illustrating yet again that it is only a matter of time before the statists get total control even if the current coup is unsuccessful.

Powerful forces of darkness have been let loose in the world by means of the errors of Modernity and the errors of Modernism, to say nothing of our own sins. We need to pray, fast and make many sacrifices for the restoration of a true pope on the Throne of Saint Peter and, obviously, to save our own souls as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary in these perilous times.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Jorge the Idolatrous Scoundrel Plays the Race Card

The title of this brief article is self-explanatory.

Another original article should be published by Friday, November 15, 2019, the Feast of Saint Albert the Great, and it is by that time that I should be ready to take pre-orders for Volume One of To Live in the Light of Eternity.

Let the "Communion Wars" of 2020 Begin!

There are several developments in the thoroughly un-Catholic world of conciliarism that have made headlines in recent weeks, including the courageous Alexander Tschugguel’s identifying himself as the man who organized the symbolic drowning of the Pachamama idols in the Tiber River.

This commentary, however, focuses on the courageous action of “Father” Robert Morey, a conciliar presbyter in the Diocese of Charleston, South Carolina, in denying Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., what purports to be Holy Communion during a staging of the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic liturgical abomination of desolation.

Unfortunately, for “Father” Morey, however, Jorge Mario Bergoglio has never met a pro-abortion politician he has not fawned all over and praised with great enthusiasm. To make matters worse, Timothy Michael Dolan, the supposed “conservative” “archbishop” of New York, damned Morey with faint praise while protesting that he, Dolan, preferred “persuasion.”

You get the idea.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Make Friends of the Poor Souls

One of ways in which we can practice true Charity is to remember the Poor Souls every day in our prayers. Terrible, terrible sinner that I am, one of my devotions has long been to the Poor Souls. To help the Poor Souls repay the debt that they can no longer pay for themselves is to acquire friends for eternity who will help us at the moment of our own deaths. Charity to the Poor Souls can help to undo our own lack of charity to others in this passing, mortal vale of tears. This is indeed the month of the Poor Souls. Let us show them our due attention each and every day of the year, especially in this month of November.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and all of the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

The Glorious Celebration of the Church Militant in Heaven

Our one and only goal in this life is to get home to Heaven by dying in a state of Sanctifying Grace as a member of the Catholic Church. Absolutely nothing else matters. The path to Heaven runs through the Cross of our Divine Redeemer, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, as we consecrate ourselves to Him totally through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of His Most Blessed Mother.

We must embrace suffering and humiliation and hardship with equanimity, joy and gratitude, mindful of the fact that Our Lady desires use whatever merits we earn from our embrace of our sufferings for the honor and glory of the Most Blessed Trinity and for the good of souls, especially the Poor Souls in the Church Suffering in Purgatory, whose intentions we must remember every day and especially during this month of November. There is no other path to the triumph of the empty tomb other than the suffering of the Cross.

We must also forgive right readily those who have offended us in any way and to ask forgiveness from those whom we have offended, whether advertently or inadvertently. Nothing anyone does to us or says about us is the equal of what one of our least Venial Sins caused Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to suffer in His Sacred Humanity during his Passion and Death and that caused His Most Blessed Mother's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart to be pierced through and through with Seven Swords of Sorrow. 

The good, the bad and the ugly of ever person's life is revealed only on the Last Day at the General Judgment of the living and the dead. Let us be content to bear with suffering, humiliation, ostracism and mockery now as a means of so dying to self that we will consider it to be a great honor to be crushed and brought low in the sight of men. Suffering is indeed the path to triumph!

We must continue to pray for each other on a daily basis, praying especially that the disagreements of the present moment in this time of apostasy and betrayal will be washed away by the merits of the Most Precious Blood of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and by the maternal intercession of His Most Blessed Mother.

If we want to be in Heaven for all eternity, you see, in the presence of the Most Blessed Trinity, Our Lady, Saint Joseph and all of the angels of the saints, then it is a pretty good idea to pray for everyone whom God's Providence has placed in our paths, hoping that those from whom we might be estranged at the present time, especially because of the divisions among Catholics created by conciliarism and its apostasies, will be united with us for all eternity in the glories of Heaven, please God that each of us dies in a state of Sanctifying Grace.

One of ways in which we can practice true Charity is to remember the Poor Souls every day in our prayers. Terrible, terrible sinner that I am, one of my devotions has long been to the Poor Souls. To help the Poor Souls repay the debt that they can no longer pay for themselves is to acquire friends for eternity who will help us at the moment of our own deaths. Charity to the Poor Souls can help to undo our own uncharity to others in this passing, mortal vale of tears. This is indeed the month of the Poor Souls.

Let us show them our due attention each and every day of the year, especially in this month of November. Remember, of course, that from noon today on All Saints' Day through midnight of the Commemoration of All Souls tomorrow the Catholic faithful, as often as they visit a church or to pray for the dead, reciting six times during each visit the Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be for the intentions of Holy Mother Church may gain a plenary indulgence applicable only to the souls in Purgatory, under the usual conditions of making a good Confession within a week before or after, worthily receiving Holy Communion within the week and having the right intention of heart. This is called the Toties Quoties Indulgence.

Also, courtesy of the Daily Catholic website, are the Thirty-Day De Profundis Prayers for the Holy Souls in Purgatory. (Link provided in text of this brief reflection.)

Finally, the next original article for this site is nearing completion. Although I am working on getting out a series of anthologies of my spiritual/liturgical reflections, I will continue to write as time and my own physical ability, which on some days is limited because of the chronically deteriorated state of my lower spine, permit. Thank you.

A blessed All Saints Day to you all!

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

The Key to Understanding Our Situation Today: The Conciliar Church is Not the Catholic Church

This commentary focuses on Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s love of false idols.

The key question facing Catholics who do not as of yet accept the fact the See of Peter is vacant is this: Can the Catholic Church, she who is the spotless, mystical spouse of her Divine Founder, Invisible Head and Mystical Bridegroom, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, be responsible for the Amazon Synod, which is, after all, just the denouement of the agenda planned by Angelo  Roncalli/John XXIII and implemented by Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonia Maria Montini/Paul VI, Albino Luciani/John Paul I, Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II, Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI and, of course, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Argentine Apostate?

Saint Jude Thaddeus: Our Powerful Helper in These Times of Disarray

Today, Monday, October 28, 2019, is the Feast of Saints Simon and Jude. 

Special attention is given in this tribute to the Patron Saint of Hopeless cases to the fact that he, Saint Jude Thaddeus, carried on his person the Holy Shroud on which is impressed the image of the Holy Face of Jesus. Devotion to the Holy Face is one of the ways God has given us in this time of apostasy and betrayal to make reparation for the crimes of all blasphemers and communists, including the conciliar revolutionaries.

My commentary on the so-called Amazon Synod, which was convened by and has been filled with Modernist blasphemers and idol-worshipers, is proceeding apace. It is my hope to have the commentary completed for posting by Wednesday, October 30, 2019. Thank you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

We Must Always Live and be Ready to Die for Christ the King

Today is the Feast of the Universal Kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ and the Commemoration of the Twentieth Sunday after Pentecost.

As we live in the midst of the insanity, the utter madness of the absolute farce that is our Judeo-Masonic governmental system, we must always be champions of Christ the King as His totally consecrated slaves through His Most Blessed Mother's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Our Lord is meant to be King of both men and their nations. We must never fall for the diabolical trap posed by the organized forces of naturalism in our country. We must rally at all times to the cause of Christ the King, Whose cause is defended by neither the naturalists in political parties or the conciliarists in the counterfeit church of conciliarism.

Remember, the coup that made it possible for the likes of Robert Mueller, James Brien Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Adam Schiff. Nancy Patricia D'Alesandro Pelosi, et al. to instigate a coup against a fellow naturalist they believe to be on the "wrong" side of the naturalist divide was undertaken by Martin Luther just four days shy of five hundred two years ago. Luther's coup against Christ the King and His true Church is being celebrated by Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his band of conciliar revolutionaries. Una cum Francisco, anyone?

Vivat Christus Rex!

Viva Cristo Rey!

The Sovereignty of Christ the King is Universal and Eternal

Today is the great feast of the Universal Kingship of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, instituted by Pope Pius XI by the issuance of Quas Primas, December 11, 1925, to counteract the naturalism and the anticlericalism that was spreading so wildly in the world and attracting so many Catholics away from the Faith. This is ninety-fourth observance of the Feast of Christ the King since its institution.

Believe it or not, new articles are being written and I a still dealing with that book project. 

A blessed Feast of Christ the King to you all!

Vivat Christus RexViva Cristo Rey!

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
