March 2, 2015, Update:
Substantial progress has been made on the completion of the next article, which deals with one of Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s recent “surprises,” namely, declaring Gregory of Narek, who lived his entire life outside of communion with the Catholic Church as a member of the Armenian Apostolic Church, a “doctor” of what he thinks is the Catholic Church. As it is necessary to take particular care with various distinctions, it is prudent at this late/early hour to cease work. It is my goal to complete the commentary by tomorrow evening.
I am sorry for the delay. However, it is just no longer possible to stay up for hours upon hours overnight to complete articles, which get completed whenever they are done. Thank you for your patience.
The last article on this site contained a few typographical errors that I noticed on Friday afternoon while running errands and corrected that evening. Two, though, remained.
One was a reference I had made to Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s “grandson,” who had been identified correctly as his nephew and Godson in an earlier passage in the article. This has been corrected.
The second was a link to Dr. Karl D. Keller’s book on Our Lady of the Great Event that, I discovered this evening, no longer works. I had used a link that had been provided to me in an e-mail on March 10, 2013, and I simply did not check the link to see if it was still active. It would appear that much of the information in the book will appear on Dr. Keller’s website.
My thanks to the reader who brought these matters to my attention yesterday afternoon.
Finally, it has come to my attention that Father Theodore Hesburgh, the President of the University of Notre Dame from 1952 to 1987, died on February 26, 2015. Although I have written about him in the past, I will do again for the benefit of younger readers who are not aware of Father Hesburgh's gargantuan efforts to transform Catholic universities across the nation into bastions of secularism and diversity in the name of "progess" sought to end what he believed was the "ghettoization" of Catholic higher education. Hesburgh's efforts began long before the "Second" Vatican Council began. A detailed commentary will follow in a few days when time permits.
It also has come to attention that the late Dr. Charles Rice, whom I met in December of 1972 and would later work with on the Wanderer Forum Foundation, died on February 25, 2015, at the age of eighty-three. Dr. Rice was an eminent voice of Catholic truth at the University of Notre Dame Law School from 1969 to 2000, at which point he became a professor emeritus. One of his early books, The Vanishing Right to Live, was used by a Dominican priest in a Contemporary Moral Ethics in course that I took at Saint John's University in the Spring 1972 Semester. He was one of the foremost defenders and exponents of the Natural Law. Many profited from knowing him and from reading his books. Please join me in praying for the repose of his immortal soul and the consolation of his wife and ten children and their families at this time
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and all of the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
Viva Cristo Rey!
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.
