Although I am continuing work on a commentary about "palliative care" as a means to expedite the deaths of sick human beings according to the dictates of sentimentality and utilitarianism, news that broke late last evening, the Feast of Saint Mark the Evangelist, that the United States Department of Justice had asked the Supreme Court of the United States of America for a sixty-day delay to sort out the "complex" issues of the "contraception insurance mandate," which was issued by former United States Secretary of Health and Human Sevices, Kathleen Sebelius, a pro-abortion Catholic who had close ties to the late George Tiller, better known as Tiller the Killer, on June 28, 2013, the Feast of Saint Irenaeus, as being challenged by the Little Sisters of the Poor.
What's so "complex."
What's so hard about simply repealing the mandate itself and dropping the Federal government's case against the Little Sisters of the Poor?
Oh well, be assured that I am loaded for bear on this one.
Remember, I did write a series of articles (Sober Up, part one, Sober Up, part two, Sober Up, part three, Sober Up, part four, Sober Up, part five, Jerusalem Belongs To Christ the King, part one/Sober Up, part six, Sober Up, part seven, Sober Up, part eight, Sober Up, part nine, and Sober Up, part ten) in addition to a four-part video series (No Catholicism, No Social Order, part one, No Catholicism, No Social Order, part two, No Catholicism, No Social Order, part three, and No Catholicism, No Social Order, part four) to shed some true Catholic realism to bear on contemporary events. There have also been several recent articles that have attempted to convince the unconvinced that Donald John Trump is an anti-intellecutal secularist is surrounded by Talmudists, none of whom have any intention of restoring legal protection to the innocent preborn or to the Little Sisters of the Poor (see Everyone Loses When Our King Reigneth Not Over Men and Their Nations, part one, Everyone Loses When Our King Reigneth Not Over Men and Their Nations, part two, There Is Nothing "Pro-Life" About RyanCare, Everyone Loses When Our King Reigneth Not Ove Men and Their Nations, part three, and Jerusalem Belongs to Christ the King and His True Church, part two)/
In the meantime, I am offering a republished reflection on the life and martyrdom of Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen, O.F.M., Cap.,whose feast was celebrated on Monday, April 24, 2017, that incorporates a few comments about the work of Saint Mark the Evangelist and Pope Saints Cletus and Marcellinus to win souls for the Holy Faith.
Saint Fidelis opposed false ecumenism with his very life. Unlike the conciliar "popes" and their "episcopal" henchmen, Saint Fidelis came to "extirpate heresy, not to embrace it."
Our Lady of Good Counsel, pray for us.
Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen, pray for us.
