On the Commemorated Feast of Saint Patrick (2024)

This is a tribute to our glorious Saint Patrick, Bishop and Confessor, whose work in behalf of the conversion of the Irish clans from paganism stands in very sharp contrast to the obeisance that has been paid by the conciliar “popes” and their “bishops” to every false religion and pagan superstition imaginable. It was to wipe out paganism that Saint Patrick spent his life as a missionary to the Emerald Isle, that land of Saints and Scholars which has fallen back into paganism in no small measure because of the false doctrines and sacramental barrenness of the liturgical rites of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. Saint Patrick stands ready to convert each one of us away from our own sins if only we beg his intercession to help make us saints, especially now in the middle of the Fourth Week of Lent.

We are privileged to have a relic of Saint Patrick that is venerated each night before sleep. This relic was given to us most unexpectedly by a good friend of ours some years ago now.

It is my hope, perhaps furtive, to have the next original article by Laetare Sunday, March 19, 2023.

Tomorrow, Monday, March 18, 2024, is the Feast of Saint Cyril of Jersualem and the Commemoration of Saturday of the Monday in Passion Week, is the forty-second nniversary of the death of my late mother, Norma Florence Red Fox Droleskey (nee: Maxine Coomer, born on March 6, 1921). Please pray for the repose of her immortal soul.

Tomorrow is also the seventeenth anniversary of the death of Father Daniel Johnson, the longtime pastor of St. Mary's by the Sea Church in Huntington Beach, California, who personally walked the entire territory of his parish three times to knock on every door, resulting in the conversion of 532 people to the Holy Faith, and it is also the sixteenth anniversary of the death of Mrs. Therese Colgan, the mother of a former student of mine from St. Francis College, Brooklyn, New York, during the 1985-1986 academic years. Please pray for the respose of their immortal souls. (A former friend of minemwithin the conciliar structures, for whom I pray every day, turns seventy-three years of age on March 18 as well.)

A blessed Feast of Saint Patrick to you all!

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Reviewing Jorge's Eleventh Year of Apostasy

This commentary reviews a few selected “lowlights” of Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s just concluded eleventh year as the universal public face of apostasy.

The next original commentary on this site will deal with Russo-Ukraine and Israeli-Gaza wars.

Read Pope Saint Pius X on Pope Saint Gregory the Great

This is a republished reflection on Pope Saint Gregory the Great, whose feast is celebrated today, Tuesday, March 12, 2024, that draws principally upon Pope Saint Pius X's Iucunda Sane, March 12, 1904.

The newest article to appear on this site was published yesterday (see The Prophet Osee Reminds Us: "For there is no truth, and there is no mercy, and there is no knowledge of God in the land" (Osee 4:1).)

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

The Prophet Osee Reminds Us: "For there is no truth, and there is no mercy, and there is no knowledge of God in the land" (Osee 4:1)

After unexpected interruptions throughout the past week and computer glitches that almost erased the entirety of this commentary's text an hour ago, here is a commentary about how the world has fallen into the abyss because, to quote the Prophet Osee: "For there is no truth, and there is no mercy, and there is no knowledge of God in the land.

This is not a commentary about the presidential election as such, but it does touch upon how world leaders, including those in the United States of America, are committed to the promotion of evil under the cover of the civil law to a greater or lesser extent.

Thank you for your patience.

Reflections on the Via Dolorosa, the Via Crucis (2024)

This contains a few reflections for your consideration on the Way of the Cross that might be useful for the last three weeks of Lent. These reflections were written many a moon ago and have been revised slightly over the past three decades. 

The next original commentary is crawling along. However, it should be completed today, Laetare Sunday, barring any of the unexpected interruptions that were experienced each day last week. It is Lent, after all, and penance is quite indeed better than ever in 2024!

A blessed Laetare Sunday to you all.

Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.

Brother Zero: Saint John of God, Who was Understood by God Alone

This article in honor of Saint John of God, whose feast is celebrated today, was written seventeen years ago now. A lot of hard work went into its completion. I believe it to be one a piece that will give great consolation to those who have not as of yet read it.

Saint John of God was little understood during his life. It was the case that even his longtime spiritual director, Saint John of Avila, who knew him fairly well, did not understand his decisions. Saint John of God suffered from all manner of slanders and even beatings in his life. He suffered slanders even up to the point of his own death. It was enough for him to be understood by God. It should be enough for us as well, especially during this time of apostasy and betrayal when so many of us are misunderstood and castigated by relatives and friends and acquaintances as being "outside of the Church" for our refusal to make any concessions to conciliarism or its false shepherds. We should be grateful that we are as misunderstood and hated and calumniated as was Saint John of God!

A new commentary was being written about eight hours ago when I simply konked out in my chair before awakening four hours later. It will get completed later today.  

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

On the Feast of the Angelic Doctor, Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P. (2024)

This is a revised and expanded, although still entirely inadequate, commentary on the Feast of Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Thursday, March 7, 2024.

The next original article should be published within twenty-four hours as it was delayed yesterday by entirely unforeseen circumstances.

"Demos II" Tries to Save Conciliarism From Its Logical Consequence: Jorge Mario Bergoglio

A short essay written under by a conciliar "cardinal" under pseudonym of "Demos II" has prompted what turned out to be a rather lengthy exposition of his errors, the foremost of which is his obvious belief that the "Second" Vatican Council and the teachings of Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II and Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI should guide the selection of the next universal face of apostasy to succeed Jorge Mario Bergoglio. 

By the way, I totally forgot to note that February 20, 2004, was the twentieth anniversary of this website going "live" online. Thus, the work of Christ or Chaos, which began as a printed publication in September of 1996, is its twenty-eighth year. Although I can no longer write as much as I did in the past, I do what I can as my time permits. Thank you for reading this site, and I thank all our benefactors, past and present, for making this work possible, noting that it would really terrific if a few more montly benfactors were to come along within the Providence of God.

The next original article on this will not take as long to appear as this current one. (Once again, I am not offering any further comments about the lawfare being used against former President Donald John Trump or the presidential election untl after Easter. While individual issues, such as illegal immigration, will be discussed as events warrant, I am avoiding all dog and pony shows, includuing whatever decision Judge Scott McAfee renders in the case of Fani Willis and Nathan Wade, until after Easter. Our focus must be on prepariing for a good Passiontide, not on the distractions posed by the world,

The Only Anomalies That Must Concern Us Are Our Sins

[Update on Saturday, March 2, 2024: I am working on a commentary about an essay published under the pseudonym of "Demos II," who is a conciliar "cardinal," outlining expectations for the next head of what he thinks is the Catholic Church while making his criticism of "Pope Francis" very clear. As I want to be concise and precise in my commentary on the essay, I need to take a bit of time to choose only a few examples of how the "cardinal's" belief that the "Second" Vatican Council and the magisterium of the conciliar "popes" prior to Jorge Mario Bergoglio had been faithful representations of the Catholic Faith.

[The "cardinal" also wants to see a return to the "hermeneutic of continuity," which is, even though he may not understand or accept it, is nothing other than repackaged dogmatic evolutionism. One cannot use an entity's false principles as a means to combat those principles' logical conclusion, and Jorge Mario Bergoglio is nothing if not their very expression. It is my hope to have the commentary published on the Third Sunday of Lent. Thank you.]

This is a follow-up of sorts to the commentary posted four days ago.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
