"They Have Eyes, But They Do Not See" The Abomination of Desolation

An attempt is being made to catch up with a few subjects upon which I was unable to write during the week that I was without a functioning notebook computer.

This particular commentary is a reaction to an interview that a “Monsignor” Nicola Bux gave on October 13, 2018, that has received additional attention since a news story appeared about it on November 15, 2018, the Feast of Saint Albert the Great.

There will be a few other articles in the next week as I endeavor to wrap up work on volume one of an anthology of my spiritual reflections.

Thank you for your patience.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Catherine of Alexandria, pray for us.

Pope Saint Clement Knew That No One Can Disobey a True Pope

Yes, I am in the midst of writing a new article. However, the clock struck midnight, meaning that I am going to have to resume work on it later today. 

In the place of a new article, though I offer you a very brief republished commentary on the work of Pope Saint Clement.

Pope Saint Clement I, pray for us. 
Saint Felicity, pray for us.

Saint Cecilia: Model of Heroic Catholic Purity

Today is the Feast of Saint Cecilia, a heroic model of Catholic purity and of martyrdom for the Holy Faith.

Yes, the secular world celebrates a different “holy day” today. While we can always Catholicize such days, our first obligation is to live the liturgical life of the Catholic Church and not to be the prisoners of a secular calendar that has sought to replace Christmas Day with “thanksgiving day.” Every day is a Thanksgiving Day for a Catholic. (See the article below this one for a reflection on the secular thanksgiving day.

An original article should appear by Saturday, November 24, 2018. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. 

Saint Cecilia, pray for us.

John Calvin Could Not Be Happier

One of the saddest spectacles here in a land suffused with the ethos of Judeo-Calvinist-Masonic naturalism is how the secular celebration of thanksgiving day has eclipsed Christmas Day in the homes of many Americans.

This is quite by design as it was the intention of the thirty-third degree Freemason named Franklin Delano Roosevelt to promote shopping during a time when our attention must be on withdrawing from the world. As there are a few new readers to this site, including some from Protestant and even Jewish backgrounds who have expressed an interesting in converting to the true Faith, it is my hope that this republished reflection might of assistance in demonstrating the extent to which the warfare against Christ the King that entered its overt phase with the Protestant Revolution in 1517 has shaped what passes for American "culture" to the detriment of souls and thus to all of social order. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Saint Cecilia, pray for us. .

On the Feast of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Yes, I am back online again. It is going to take several days to get back up to speed with new articles. However, I remain grateful for the help that we received to get a refurbished notebook computer. I hope to have a new article for posting by the Feast of Saint John of the Cross and the Commemoration of Saint Chrysogonus, Saturday, November 24, 2018. 

Today is the Feast of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This is a short reflection on the feast day, which is followed by an appendix including the description of the Presentation of Our Lady as found in The New English Edition of The Mystical City of God.

Work on my book projects will resume later today.

Finally, please pray for a former student of mine who turns fifty-one years of age today and for a friend of ours on Long Island who turns seventy years of age today. Thank you.

Our Lady, Ark of the New Covenant, pray for us.

Saints Joachim and Anne, pray for us.


Well, I have good news and bad news.

The good news is that I have a new notebook computer. I am grateful for the donation that made this possible. Deo gratias!

The bad news is that the modem that connects the computer to internet died about thirty after I had set up the computer. The cross is ever present in our lives. Deo gratias.

A replacement modem is being sent.

In the meantime, you can read my reflection on the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which is listed on the 2016-2018 Articles Archive page for the month of November 2017.

Check back again soon for the next thrill-packed episode of The Perils of Droleskey.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Republished: Saint Josaphat Kuncewicz Laid Down His Life To Do What Conciliarism Forbids

This is a brief refection on the life and the martyrdom of Saint Josaphat Kuncewicz, who laid down his life to do what is forbidden by conciliarism, namely, to seek the conversion of the schismatic and heretical Orthodox churches.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Josaphat Kuncewicz, pray for us.

Pray To Be Spared from Eternal Wildfires

Although felled by some kind of sickness and slowed by the chronic problems caused by degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis and two fracture lumbar discs, this is a brief commentary on the tragic events that continue to unfold in California. Pray for all those affected and for the conversion of those who are steeped in and/or promote sin with wanton abandon.

Most of my time now is being spent on readying volume one of an anthology of my spiritual reflections. A grant has been given to make possible the volume’s printing so that I can avoid using CreateSpace again. It is my hope to have the book ready for sale in early December.

My election commentary will be posted whenver they count the manufactured votes in Broward and Palm Beach counties in Florida. Gee, I wonder if Gore is going to beat Bush this time around?

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Didacus—San Diego, pray for us.

Republished: Athanasius of Kazakhstan: Not To Be Confused with Athanasius of Alexandria

Although I have been busy with many things, including putting together the anthology of spiritual reflections and attempting to write on the electoral side show that will keep many people agitated for the next two years prior to the 2020 circus that will keep many people agitated until 2022, I saw that "Bishop" Athanasius Schneider's travel itinerary is being curtailed by the apostles of "episcopal collegiality" within the walls of the Occupied Vatican on the West Bank of the Tiber River (see Novus Ordo Watch Wire), I have neither the time nor the desire to add my own commentary to the matter other than to republish this piece, which was published ten months ago.

The irony here is that Bergoglio's cracking down on dissenters from his interpretation of the apostasy represented by conciliarism represents an exercise of the sort of authority that a true pope is duty-bound to employ when faced with renegade bishops. In this instance, of course, Jorge Mario Bergoglio is not a true "pope" and his nemeses, including Raymond Leo Burke and Athanasius Schenider, are neither bishops nor priests. This is all a smokescreen n the part of the adversary to create the same kind of illusion of a "good guys" versus the "bad guys" conflict that was created centuries ago by the lords of Modernity to control the masses with the illusion of conflict between competing sets of naturalists. The conflict between Jorge and his renegades is simply a matter of Modernists of one degree or another who cannot agree on what level of defection from the Catholic Faith constitutes apostasy. (The answer is, of course: just one, meaning that they've all abandoned the Holy Faith as even a partial abandonment puts one outside the pale of the Barque of Saint Peter.)

The election commentary will take a few days, if not a week, to complete. It will be as thorough as "George Soro's Latest Sideshow" a month ago. Thanks for your patience.

Our Lady, Queen of All Saints, pray for us.

The Four Holy Crowned Martyrs, pray for us.


Make Friends of the Poor Souls

[Circumstances, including the degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis and two fractured lumbar vertebrae, have slowed me down in recent days. I am sorry for the lateness of this posting. However, November is the month of the Poor Souls. Thank you.]

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.

Work on book projects is consuming my time at present. I will write an election commentary after the results are known tomorrow night. I have restrained from writing about the biennial madness thus far, but I have plenty to say when the farce is over and the current "most important election of our lives" has come to an end and the votes have been "counted" by the fraudulent machines/computers. 

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.
