A Passiontide Reflection

Passiontide has begun, requiring us to intensify our reflections upon the Sacred Mysteries of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's Passion, Death, and Resurrection so that we can be more fully prepared for the Paschal Triduum that begins on Maundy Thursday, April1, 2021, but which is preceded by Tenebrae on Wednesday evening, March 31, 2021. Worldly distractions must have little place in our lives these next two weeks. Our Lord, the very Word Who was made Incarnate in His Most Blessed Mother's Virginal and Immaculate Womb by the power of His Co-Equal, Co-Eternal God the Holy Ghost at the Annunciation (the feast of which we celebrate this Friday, March 25, 2021), condescended to suffer and die for us, each and every single one of us.

How can we pray such a debt of love to the God-Man who took upon Himself the guilt of sins, which caused Him to suffer in His Sacred Humanity as sin the very antethesis of of Sacred Divinity?

What we can do is to keep close to Our Lady as we beg her to help us to be more grateful than ever before for the gift of her Divine Son's Redemptive Act in which she participated fully as the Queen of Martyrs atop Mount Calvary and to meditate with great fervor and devotion upon the Sorrowful Mysteries of her Most Holy Rosary so that we can make the very best Passiontide of our lives.

A republished article about Saint Benedict of Nursia, whose feast is commemorated today, will be published this afternoon. There are no fewer than five different articles that are being prepared for publication now, although one of them, "Sin: More Deadly Than the Coronavirus, part twelve," will not be publisted until Easter Monday or Easter Tuesday. There is just too much work to complete before it can be published. Oh, please note as well that What One Antipope Giveth, the Next Antipope Can Taketh Away was published three days ago now.

Finally, today, Sunday, March 21, 2021, is the sixtieth anniversary of my Confirmation at the hands of Bishop Walter P. Kellenberg, the founding Bishop of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, at Saint Aloysius Church in Great Neck, Long Island, New York. Please pray for my fellow confirmadi, whether living or deceased. Thank you.

A blessed Passiontide to you all.

Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.

Saint Benedict of Nursia, pray for us.

Our Good Saint Joseph: The Just and Silent Man of the House of David

[An original article, What One Antipope Giveth, the Next Antipope Can Taketh Away, was published late yesterday afernoon. Please scroll below for details. Also, please scroll below for information about my newest book: Bergoglio At War--With the Catholic Faith (Paperback); Bergoglio At War--With the Catholic Faith (Kindle).]

Today, of course, is the great Feast of Saint Joseph, the Chaste Spouse of Our Lady, the just and silent man of the House of David. Saint Joseph denied himself his biological fatherhood in order to serve as the ever-virginal spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the most loving foster-father to Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

In him, Saint Joseph, is to be found every virtue for a husband and father to imitate: patience, charity, forbearance in all difficulties, fortitude, perseverance, temperance, and total self-abnegation. Those of us who are husbands and fathers must learn to be more silent, to learn to be more loving, to learn to be more patient, to learn to be more meek, to learn to be ever-ready to worker harder and harder at our life's work so as to help our wives and our children to live as redeemed creatures here below in order to know eternal happiness hereafter in Heaven. Saint Joseph is the model of home life and the patron of artisans, the protector of widows and orphans, the patron of those who are in danger of death. May we invoke his patronage each day after we invoke that of his Most Chaste Spouse, Our Lady, and never be slow to turn to him in our spiritual and temporal needs:

"O Saint Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in thee all my interests and desires. O thou Saint Joseph, do assist me by thy powerful intercession, and obtain for me from thy divine Son all spiritual blessings, through Jesus Christ, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ; so that, having engaged here below thy heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of fathers. O Saint Joseph, I never weary contemplating thee, and Jesus asleep in thy arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near thy heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His fine head for me, and ask Him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath. Saint Joseph, Patron of departing souls, pray for me. Amen!"

A blessed Feast of Saint Joseph to you all! 

What One Antipope Giveth, the Next Antipope Can Taketh Away

This commentary could have been entitled “Dancing on Ratzinger’s Grave Before He’s Dead and Buried,” “Hi-Yo, Summorum Pontificum, Away!,” “One Trap Catches Thousands of Mice,” “Montini’s Posthumous Revenge,” or “The Return of Annibale Bugnini, Virgilio Noe, and Piero Marini.”

Jorge Mario Bergoglio is making it clear, if only by the use of a little known Modernist underling in the Secretariat of State, that the days of any tolerance of the liturgical "past" are over. Although he is starting with the banning of private, individual stagings of both the Immemorial Mass of Tradition and the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical abomination on the side altars in main part of the Basilica of Saint Peter, the letter that one of his appointees, "Archbishop" Pena Parra, sent to the Fabric of Saint Peter is a roadmap for his like-minded Jacobin/Bolshevik "progressitvist" revolutionaries in the conciliar hieararchy to use for themselves without any fear of antipapal reprisal. Indeed, quite the contrary is true. The Argentine Apostate is giving the "green light" to crack down on priests and presbyters who deviate from the joys of the "liturgical reform and renewal."

Those of us who understand that the conciliar officials are enemies of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and serve in a false religious sect that is but the counterfeit ape of the Catholic Church know that, no matter how interesting the civil wars within the conciliar church may be, the battle we fight is for the restoration of the Holy Faith, whose liturgical expression is safeguarded in the Immemorial Mass of Tradition. It is pointless for those who are attached to the conciliar structures in the belief that they represent the Catholic Church to fight for the "right" for the modernized version of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition as those they believe to be the officials of the Catholic Church hate any expression of liturgical tradition because they hate the Faith.

My reflection on the Feast of Saint Joseph will be highlighted tomorrow, Friday, March 19, 2021.

Today, March 18, 2021, was the thirty-ninth anniversary of the death of my mother, Norma Florence Droleskey, who was born on March 6, 1921, in her beloved Corpus Christi, Texas, at the age of sixty-one years, twelve days. She had been diagnosed with stomach and esophageal cancer just seven weeks before her death. Please pray for the repose of her immortal soul.

Today is also the fourteenth anniversary of Father Daniel Johnson, the pastor of Saint Mary by the Sea Church in Huntington Beach, California, for over twenty-five years, and the thirteenth anniversary of the death of Mrs. Theresa Colgan, the mother of a friend of ours who had been a student of mine at Saint Francis College in Brooklyn, New York, during the 1985-1986 academic year. Please pray for their souls as well.

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

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, pray for us.

Saint Cyril of Jerusalem, pray for us.


Saint Patrick: Apostle to the Land of Saints and Scholars

This is a substantially revised 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.

Please be assured that we will include the intentions of each one of our readers in mind as venerate this relic of Saint Patrick this evening.

While work on the next article, with deals with what starry-eyed Catholics within the conciliar structures who have "fought" for the "freedom" to assist at the modernized version of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition that was in effect universally within the conciliar church for a grand total of two years (all right, excluding the first change in the Canon of the Mass since Pope Saint Gregory the Great rearranged sixteen words at the end of the Sixth Century A.D. that was made by Angelo Roncalli/John XXIII in 1963, most of the "1962 Missal" was implemented on the First Sunday of Advent in 1961, December 3, 1961) until being supplanted by the so-called "transitional Mass," the Ordo Missae of Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria Montini/Paul the Sick, on Sunday, November 29, 1964, are recognizing is the beginning of the end of Summorum Pontificum, the work that remains to be done on it is substantial. Thus, I beg the patience of the readers as I work on this important and very detailed commentary. (Please scroll below for information about my newest book.)

Also, Dr. Paul Byrne has asked me to circulate the following request he has made concerning the repealing and replacing of  the so-called "Universal Determination of Death Act" (UDDA):

We need to get as many as possible to contact ULC and their legislators. We must be moving ahead. We must get legislators involved with repeal and replace UDDA:
Write to the Uniform Law Commission and legislators. Tell them that the UDDA needs to be repealed and replaced by “No one shall be declared dead unless respiratory and circulatory systems and the entire brain have been destroyed. Such destruction shall be determined in accord with universally accepted medical standards.”
Full and complete information and the opportunity to decline or consent must be provided for being declared dead using neurological criteria.
Dr. Byrne has written a new article on the subject: The Universal Determination of Death Act: Repeal and Replace. Please heed his sage advice on this Feast of Saint Patrick. 
Finally, I have been informed about the work to expose the fraud that is the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus plandemic by Mr. Andy Heasman, who is a layman who assists at Holy Mass offered by priests of the Congregation Mary Immaculate Queen (CMRI), in the Land of Saints Scholars, the land evangelized and converted by Saint Patrick, Ireland. Mr. Heasman's website, Covid-19 Exposed, is very informative. Please pray to Saint Patrick today for his success in exposing the truth about a virus that kill a less than one percent of those without preexisting co-morbidities who have been legitimately infected with it as great efforts are underway, I have been told, to shut him up by shutting down the spread of the information he is providing. Pray that more of the Irish will have the apostolic courage of Mr. Andy  Heasy.

A blessed Feast of Saint Patrick to you all! 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Patrick, pray for us.


Although I have been writing a new and very detailed article as a follow-up to my commentary on Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI's "difficulty" in understand President In Name Only Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr.'s, absolute and unwavering support for every anti-life and anti-legitimately defined liberty agenda of Marxism, replete with a undisugised effort--undertaken with multinational corporations that owe allegiance only to their own usurious practices that maximize profits--of "transforming" the United States of America into something appraoching a mirror image of Red China, most of my time the past five days has been spent finalizing my newest book, Bergoglio At War--With the Catholic Faith.

There were some quite penitential problems when efforts were made to upload the book, and it was not until Laetare Sunday, March 14, 2021, that I was able to get the Kindle edition published shortly after Midnight that day before getting the paperback edition published late that afternoon.

Here is the description of the new book that I placed on its back cover:

The men who have represented themselves as “popes” since the death of Pope Pius XII on October 9, 1958, have conducted an unremitting warfare against almost everything to do with the Catholic Faith, Worship, Morals, and pastoral practice. This warfare has been premised upon the adoption and promulgation of the propositions about the nature of dogmatic truth that were anathematized by Pope Pius IX and the Fathers of the [First] Vatican Council (1869-1870) and condemned in no uncertain terms by Pope Saint Pius X in Pascendi Dominci Gregis (September 8, 1907) and by Pope Pius XII in Humani Generis (August 12, 1950). The “Second” Vatican Council and its aftermath ushered in and has sustained such a blitzkrieg of changes that almost next to nothing is left of the authentic sensus Catholicus in the lion’s share of Catholics who are attached to the structures  of the counterfeit church of conciliarism in the well-intentioned but nevertheless mistaken belief that they are adhering to the Catholic Church, she who is the spotless, virginal mystical bride of her Divine Founder, Invisible Head and Mystical Bridegroom, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who goes by the stage name of “Pope Francis,” is the sixth in the line of men who have been the chief generals of the Modernist warfare against Catholicism. Bergoglio is the first of the sixth in the current line of antipopes and the first who is neither a priest nor a bishop. He is a textbook Modernist and an indemnifier of everything that is false, erroneous and ugly while serving as a demagogic attacker of those who understand that the truths of the Catholic Faith are immutable because God Himself, Who hast revealed them to His Holy Church, is immutable.

This volume contains twenty commentaries published on www.ChristorChaos.com from March  1, 2014, to April 30, 2014, demonstrating that Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s undisguised, unfiltered and unapologetic warfare against Catholicism had reached “warp speed” by the end of his first year and the beginning of his second year as the universal public face of apostasy. The commentaries contained in this book provide the reader with an opportunity to see that, quite verily, there is nothing new under Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s occluded sun.

Finally, noting that I will return to the article mentioned above, it was only today that a person familiar with this site sent me a link to an America Magazine news story about the new restrictions placed on the staging of the modernized version of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition in the Basilica of Saint Peter and restrictions placed upon private stagings of the Novus Ordo liturgical travesty. I am, to put it mildly, chomping at the bit to write on this development, which augers poorly for those in the conciliar structures who have placed their hopes in Ratzinger/Benedict's Summorum Pontificum for the past nearly fourteen years. What one figure of Antichrist giveth, the next can taketh away.  I will have a commentary completed by Friday, March 19, 2021, the Feast of Saint Joseph and the Commemoration of Friday in the Fourth Week of Lent, at the very latest.

By the way, the need for non-tax-deductible financial gifts continues. 

Thank you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.



Forget about Jorge's Annivesary Tommorow! 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, Friday, March 12, 2021, along with the commemoration of Friday in the Third Week of Lent, that draws principally upon Pope Saint Pius X's Iucunda Sane, March 12, 1904.

The next original article will appear on this site early next week as there are yet a few formatting problems with the new anthology that I am trying to publish in time for the Argentine Apostate's eighth anniversary of being the universal public face of apostasy.

Hasn't Iraq Suffered Enough Without Being Visited by Bergoglio?

Well, the hour is later than I would have liked. Then again, it is Lent, and part of my penance, I suppose, is to have to deal with Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s boilerplate conciliarism whilst the Argentine Apostate was in Iraq from March 5-8, 2021.

This commentary does not dissect everything that Bergoglio said in Iraq. Rather, the new commentary takes a thematic approach to the common thread of religious indifferentism than ran throughout the course of the antipope’s four day visit to Iraq, providing at least one example within the text of how his immediate predecessor, Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, spoke in identical terms. Appendix B contains three of Karol Josef Wojtyla’s conciliarspeak in front of those who deny the Sacred Divinity of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and one example of a generic, Judeo-Masonic prayer that was offered by Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI at “Ground Zero” on Sunday, April 20, 2008, and I should point out as well, was prayed yet again by Bergoglio himself at the same site in 2015.

Now, most of today, the Feast of the Forty Holy Martyrs of Sebaste and the Commemoration of Wednesday in the Third Week of Lent, will spend doing some editing of the text of my next anthology, which I hope to have published in time as an “anniversary” gift for Senor Jorge on Saturday, March 13, 2021. Part two of the commentary published six days ago will probably be posted on Sunday, March 14, 2021, Laetare Sunday, as this commentary took precedence.

Finally, there is a rather urgent need to raise over a thousand dollars at this time. Half of that amount is to be the exorbitant electric bill we received on March 1, 2021, and represents the excessive charges associated with the unusual amounts snow and the sub-zero temperatures here in Texas during the period from February 12, 2021, to February 17, 2021. We need your non-tax-deductible financial gifs now, and I thank you in advance for any consideration you can give to this urgent request.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

The Holy Forty Martyrs of Sebaste, pray for us.

Revised: Understood by God Alone

This article in honor of Saint John of God, whose feast is celebrated today, was written nine 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!

Work on my next original article, which deals with Bergoglio's boilerplate conciliarism whilst in Iraq, continues. As the Argentine Apostate is likely to conduct one of his infamous "in flight interviews" en route from Baghdad to Rome, the commentary may notbe ready for posting until Wednesday, the Feast of the Forty Holy Martyrs and the Commemoration of Wednesday in the Third Week of Lent. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

On the Feast of the Angelic Doctor: Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P.

This is a revised and expanded, although still entirely inadequate, commentary on the commemorated feast of Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., on this Third Sunday of Lent in 2021.

Two original articles are being developed at this time. One of these will be a mercifully brief treatment of Jorge Mario Bergoglio's boilerplate conciliarspeak in Iraq; the other will be part two of the commentary published on Thursday, March 4, 2021, the Feast of Saint Casimir and the Commemorations of Thursday in the Second Week of Lent and of Pope Saint Lucius I.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Nearly Seventy Years of Priesthood Spent Making What Is Clear Seem Obscure, part one

As I must arise just about four hours after this brief commentary is posted, there is time only to note that this article concerns Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Antipope Emeritus Benedict XVI and another man named Joseph, namely the President of the United States of America in Name Only, Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr.

Ratzinger, steeped in the obscurity, vagueness, opaqueness, and incertitude of the “new theology,” can’t recognize that there is nothing to “wonder” about why PINO Biden supports the Democratic Party line on the chemical and surgical execution of innocent preborn children. One has to be living on a different planet and/or in alternative universe to be so oblivious to the fact that the cognitively challenged, venal, demagogic plagiarizing Beijing Candidate, if you will, who resides in the White House has been unapologetic in his support for baby-killing and perversity.

I have been busy with book projects and hope to one have of these books published in time for Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s eighth anniversary as the universal public face of apostasy on March 13, 2021.

Part two of this commentary should appear by Monday, March 8, 2021, the Feast of Saint John of God and the Commemoration of Monday in the Third Week of Lent.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Casimir, pray for us.

Pope Saint Lucius I, pray for us.
