Revised and Expanded: An Inversion of Truth: Big Tech and the Deep State Go Full Bore Orwellian

In light of the announcement by the Secretary of the United States Department of Homeland Insecurity and Instability, Alejandro "Open Borders" Mayorkas that a "governance disinformation board" was being established to shut down criticism of the present administration in the name of combatting "disinformation," this commentary, which was published on October 23, 2020, has been revised. It is being published in its revised form now to put into perspective the simpe fact that the contemporary censorship imposed by “Big Tech”  and the "Deep State" to enforce the “party line” is an inversion of that which belongs to Holy Mother Church: the authority and the duty to prohibit that which is offensive to God and injurious to souls from being distributed.

A True Victim Soul: Saint Catherine of Siena, T.O.P.

Today’s article is a slight revision and republication of a very brief and wholly inadequate reflection on the life of the great mystic, stigmatist and spiritual directress of souls, Saint Catherine of Siena, T.O.P., whose feast day is the day after that of the Protomartyr of the Order of Preachers, Saint Peter of Verona (Saint Peter Martyr).

Saint Catherine was calumniated during her life, and she was blamed for having precipitated the Great Western Schism by convincing Pope Gregory XI to return to return to Rome in 1378. She suffered all such calumny with joy.

What’s our excuse for grumbling and/or murmuring about our crosses and the state of chaos in which we live in this time of apostasy and betrayal?

Remember, everything thing that happens to us has been ordained by the hand of God Himself with exquisite perfection. Saint Catherine of Siena never lost an opportunity to suffer well. Indeed, she begged to suffer more and more for love of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. So should we.

As yesterday was spent in locating a tire store that had the correct size tire to replace all four tires on our 2000 Ford Econoline van, wihch is our secondary vehicle, there was not enough time to complete my next semi-original article. Indeed, there is much work do on it as concerns the "Government Disinformation Board" within the Orwellian monstrosity known as the United States Department of Homeland Security. Those who tell the truth are labeled as disseminators of "dinsinformation" while those who make this self-serving determination can spread actual disinformation with impunity. I will try to have the article completed for the Feast of Saints Philip and James and the Commemoration of the Second Sunday of Easter, Sunday, May 1, 2022, but, given the work yet to complete on the project, I might not have it posted before Monday, May 2, 2022, the Feast of Saint Athanasius.

In His Own Blood: Saint Peter Verona, the Protomartyr of the Order of Preachers

Today is the feast of the protomartyr of the Order of Preachers, Saint Peter of Verona, who is known more commonly as Saint Peter Martyr. Time has been spent to revise this brief reflection of the life and holy martyrdom of this great Dominican, who hated error in his childhood as a result of being brought up by parents who were Manicheans. Saint Peter Martyr loved the Holy Faith, and it was this love that prompted him to accept his martyrdom with serenity as he wrote "Credo in Unum Deum" in his very own blood as he fell to the ground after a heretic had stabbed him.

The next semi-original article for this site should be posted by the Feast of Saint Catharine of Siena Saturday, April 30, 2022.

Republished: Saint Louis de Montfort: Friend of the Cross, Apostle of True Devotion to Mary

Yes, I am working on my next article, but it seems to be taking longer to do less. This could have something to do with the the amount of "free" time that I have available to write after the reading and research necessary for original articles.

In the meantime, however, I offer those who still access this site a reflection Saint Louis Grignion de Montfort's exhortations to avoid worldliness by becoming friends of the Cross and by being truly devoted to Our Lady as the consecrated slave of her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart.

Finally, although the news of His Excellency Bishop Daniel Lytle Dolan’s death on Tuesday, April 26, 2022, which was, although not on the general calendar, the Feast of Our Lady of Good Counsel, is well known by now, I am posting this news here in the case there are any readers of this site who do not undertake a lot of Internet “surfing.”

Bishop Dolan’s daily and Sunday sermons were inspirational, his knowledge of the lives of saints was vast and imparted with great filial affection for them. Perhaps most importantly, of course, Bishop Dolan offered Holy Mass with exquisite perfection and his persevering commitment to the true state of the Church Militant on earth during this time of apostasy and betrayal helped many Catholics, including us, to accept the fact of the papal vacancy following the death of Pope Pius XII on October 9, 1958. He was very devoted Our Lady, especially through her Most Holy Rosary and by promoting Saint Louis de Montfort's True Devotion to Mary and The Secret of the Rosary.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, rest in peace. Amen.

Bishop Dolan’s death came just seven weeks and a day after that of Bishop Andres Morello+ and five years to the day after the death of +Bishop Robert Dymek+, who had offered his life to Our Lady for a true pope when he learned in December of 2016 that he had a heart condition that he chose not to treat to make of himself an offering for the restoration of the Principle of Unity represented by a true and legitimate Successor of Saint Peter.

Also, it was on April 27, 2019, that Father Joseph Francis Collins+ (one of The Nine) died and it was on April 26 or 27, 2021, that Father Marco Rui Alonso+ died during his sleep in Germany. May these priestly intercessors, despite any and all earthly differences they may have had amongst themselves, intercede for us who remain here in the Church Militant on earth to have a true and legitimate Successor of Saint Peter before too long. It will be the restoration of a true pope that will bring an end to most of the conflicts that have arisen within traditional circles in which some of us have participated all too eagerly. May Our Lord have mercy on us all.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.

May their souls and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio: The Most Ideologically Rigid Man Alive

The hour is late and work on this commentary about Bergoglio's screed at the Novus Ordo "Chrism Mass" on April 14, 2022, Maundy Thursday, has taken much longer than I thought it would. 

Suffice it to say that Jorge Mario Bergoglio is a rigid ideologue whose false conceptions of the Holy Priesthood have been consistent throughout his career as a lay Jesuit revolutionary. 

A republished commentary about Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen, whose feast is commemorated today, Low Sunday, has been posted, as well as Father Francis X. Weninger's first sermon for Low Sunday. Please scroll below for these postings. Thank you.

Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen Came to Extirpate Heresy, Not to Embrace It

I am offering a republished reflection on the life and martyrdom of Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen, O.F.M., Cap., the Protomartyr of the Capuchin Franciscans and the patron saint of the Society for the Propagation of the faith, today, Low Sunday, April 24, 2022.

Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen, O.F.M., Cap. 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."

May God have mercy on us all.

First Sermon of Father Francis X. Weninger, S.J., for Low Sunday

Father Francis Weninger's first sermon for today, Low Sunday, emphasized Our Lord's institution of the Sacrament of Penance that is recorded in today's Gospel reading from the Gospel of Saint John the Evangelist.  

A republished commentary about Saint Fidelis Sigmaringen, O.F.M., Cap., the Protomartyr of the Capuchin Franciscans and of the So the Propagation of the Faith will be posted in about ten minutes, followed by an original commentary about the fiend Bergoglio's "Chrism Mass" screed on April 14, 2022.

Religious Indifferentism and the Rise of Modern Atheism

The advancement of the Catholic Faith was my guiding goal in my work as a college professor of political science from the Spring of 1974 when I was teaching “discussion sections” of American Government and Politics as a graduate assistant at the State University of New York at Albany, New York, to my first full-time position as an Instructor of political science at Mohawk Valley Community College, Utica, New York, in  1976-1977, to my first two-year stint as an Assistant Professor at Illinois State University, Normal, Illinois, and right on through my final term as a long time adjunct professor at the C. W. Post Campus of Long Island University (with stops in between at Allentown College of Saint Francis de Sales, Nassau Community College, Saint John’s University, New York Institute of Technology, Saint Francis College, Morningside College—and a five week summer session tour of duty at Chadron State College in Chadron, Nebraska). I did not know that the conciliar church was not the Catholic Church, but I knew that it was necessary for all men to belong to the Catholic Church in order to be saved.

However, there was something very important lacking in my intellectual formation: a familiarity with the great Social Encyclical Letters of Popes Leo XIII, Saint Pius X, and Pius XI. It was not until 1987 that I came to immerse myself in those letters, which served to educate me about Holy Mother Church’s immutable teaching about the Social Reign of Christ the King. The eponymous printed journal that preceded this website’s debut on February 20, 2004, for seven and one-half years was created to serve as an instrument of catechesis about the Social Reign of Christ the King and to explain the heresy of Americanism (the exaltation of the founding principles as an expression of Catholic teaching, which it certainly is not).

Thus, it has been over thirty-five years now that I have never wavered in a necessity to explicate right principles as the foundation of a just social order, noting, of course, that fallen men will always cause problems for themselves and each other without, however, seeking to justify their sins or seeking to protect them under the cover of the civil law. Although it is far easier to permit oneself to be overtaken by the agitations of partisan politics and the pull of the world, the title of this website explains it all: it’s either Christ or chaos in our own lives and in the world.

This commentary is an effort to summarize some, although far from all, root causes of our current difficulties. The proximate root causes are complex and multifaceted. However, this commentary is yet another effort to provide those who are interested with an understanding of truths that I myself did not understand fully until I was in my mid-thirties thirty-five years ago.

I will now “disappear” to work on a Bergoglio-themed disquisition, work that I loathe with a capital “L” but is necessary to point out to those among the unconvinced who are open to consider the truth that the counterfeit church is a false religious sect that has not been, is not now, and can never be the Catholic Church.

Non-tax-deductible financial gifts, anyone?

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Republished: Father Francis X. Weninger's First Sermon for Easter Monday

I am providing you with Father Francis X. Weninger’s first sermon for Easter Monday as it is every timely despite its being written and delivered around one hundred thirty-five years ago.

This sermon, which the book publisher explains in a prefatory note was written in German, focused on the persecution of Holy Mother Church, and believing Catholics by the thirty-third degree Freemasonic Chancellor of the German Empire, Otto von Bismarck, during the Kulturkampf that began shortly after the end of the Franco-Prussian War in 1871. Father Weninger’s exhortation for courage in the midst of this persecution will provide Catholics today with great encouragement in the midst of the persecutions and acts of government repression that are employed here in the United States of America and elsewhere in the so-called “civilized” world during the plandemic.

Please take the time to read this truly inspirational sermon. You will not regret doing so.

Great headway was made on the next original article for this site. It is my hope to complete work on it today for posting by Easter Wednesday morning. Work will then commence on an unexpected article, which itself will be rather lengthy, on the way that Jorge Mario Bergoglio permitted yet another one of his seemingly interminable interviews to break the grand silence of Good Friday by seeing to it that it was published on the most solemn day of the year. This particular commentary will also focus on the false pontiff's nine hundred gazillionth denunciation of "functionalism" in the conciliar presbyterate during his "Chrism Mass."

Lent is over. Penance is always in season, and it is always a penance to deal with Jorge Mario Bergoglio!

Finally, yes, the need for non-tax-deductible financial gifts remains rather crucial now.

Alleluia! Christ is Risen!

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

There is An Empty Tomb in Jerusalem: Resurrexi, et Adhuc Tecum, Alleluia! (2022)

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!

Alleluia! Christ is Risen!

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
