Revised and Expanded: Sin: More Dangerous Than the Coronavirus, part eleven

Last week's intermittent power outages (which was referred to as "load shedding" by the misnamed Energy Reliability Council of Texas) prevented me from having the sort of consistent access to the internet that is necessary to complete these article.

This commentary, which was published originally on Monday, February 22, 2021, the Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter in Antioch and the Commemorations of Saint Paul and Monday in the First Week of Lent, was considerably enlarged on Friday, February 26, 2021, Ember Friday in the First Week of Lent, to include new information about deaths caused by the Pfizer BioNTech that are not being reported either by the United States Centers for Disease Control and that are occurring in other parts of the world, including Spain and the Federal Republic of Germany. 

Although I do hope to have a commentary dealing with the out-of-control statism of the new presidential administration by next week, I am concentrating on three different book projects at this time. Thank you.

Yes, this is another lengthy commentary. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.

Memento Homo, Quia Pulvis Es, Et in Pulverem Reverteris (2021)

Our annual Lenten journey into the desert begins on Ash Wednesday, February 17, 2021. Deo gratias!

As we are one of millions of people being subjected to "rolling blackouts" of varying periods (with equally varying periods of restored power) here in the State of Texas because of the type of temperatures and snowy conditions that are very rare in most of this state, my access to the internet is intermittent, which is why this republished commentary is being posted now.

I am working on a new commentary. However, it is going to take a bit longer to complete as I need access to the internet for various sources to quote, including late-breaking developments that might be important to include therein. Thank you for your understanding.

The season that begins on Ash Wednesday is the time of penance. This is the time to withdraw from the world. This is the time to be earnest about relying upon the ineffable graces that were won for us by the shedding of every single drop of the Most Precious Blood of Our Divine Redeemer, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, during His Passion and Death and that flow into our sous through the loving hands of His Most Blessed Mother, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces.

This period of six weeks, four days until Easter Sunday (six weeks, three and one-half days until the Easter Vigil) is nearly one-ninth of an entire calendar year. May we beg Our Lady to help us make the best Lent of our lives as we do not know if it will be our last. Indeed, we do not know whether we will live to see Easter Sunday in this life on Sunday, April 4, 2021.

Our Lady of Dolors, pray for us.

Republished: On the Feast of the Apparition of Our Lady of Lourdes

Today is the one hundred sixty-second anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady to Saint Bernadette Soubirous in the Grotto of Massabielle near Lourdes, France. Our Lady explained to the fourteen year-old Bernadette that we must do penance for our sins and for those of others.

Can we do any less in our day?

Indeed, the state of the Church Militant on earth and of the world-at-large has worsened as the sins of men have grown more numerous and more daring and as most baptized Catholics have been deprived of access to Sanctifying Grace by virtue of the invalid sacraments offered in the counterfeit church of conciliarism. God is not going to permit any country that kills the innocent preborn with legal impunity and kills souls in the name of the falsehoods of "freedom of speech" and "freedom of the press" and "freedom of religion" and a general sense of legal and cultural licentiousness to know long term material prosperity. Then again, these merchants of death have been enabled by the conciliar revolutionaries, who believe that signs of "outward penance belong to a different era in the history of the Church." We must indeed take Our Lady's injunction, "Penance! Penance! Penance! Pray to God for sinners," most seriously as we pray as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permits. 

As noted in the update posted about twenty-four hours ago, I am working on book projects at this time. While I will continue to write for the website as time permits, I do want to put a representative sampling of the over two thousand articles that have appeared on this site since February 17, 2004, as it replaced the printed journal, Christ or Chaos, which had been in publication between August of 1996 and January of 2004 (this means that the work of Christ or Chaos is in its twenty-fifth year) in book form.

The current series of books upon I am working to format is on the blatherings and actions of Joseph Alois Ratzinger and Jorge Mario Bergoglio. The first volume, upon which I worked most of yesterday, Wednesday, February 10, 2021, the Feast of Saint Scholastica, contans articles from around this time seven years ago, a year after Jorge Mario Bergoglio's election to the conciliar seat of apostasy. It is truly amazing to review the extent to which the Argentine Apsotate's agenda had been laid out with clarity. The current volume will be around seven hundred pages in length. Subsequent volumes will appear, God willing and Our Lady interceding, over the course of the next six or seven months. There should a total of twenty volumes.

Finally, as noted a day ago, I am paying zero attention to the impeachment proceedings of  a private citizen. What little I have read--and it is very little--indicates that the conclusion of this unconstitutional farce is very clear, and it will be after its conclusion that I will either write a commentary or prepare a video presentation. 

Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.

Saint Bernardette Soubirous, pray for us.

Sin: More Deadly Than the Coronavirus, part ten

This commentary has been updated with a bit of additional information.

This commentary is lengthy, and I suppose that the appendix could serve as a brief stand-alone commentary of its own.

Anyhow, the title is self-explanatory.

The first update to this commentary was made around1:34 p.m., Central Standard Time, on Monday, February 8, 2021, the Feast of Saint John of Matha, to include a news story about a man in New York City who died within twenty-five minutes of receiving being vaccinated for "protection" from the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus. Well, I suppose that death "protects" one from getting the virus. The mendacity of the public health officials is remarkable to behold.

As I intend to work on book projects more than write for this site in the next few months, I will not be writing about the impeachment trial of a private citizen until after the farce is over. There is much to comment upon, of course, but suffice it to say for the moment that there is nothing to be gained to make any comment until the "trial," such as it is, has reached its denouement. although perhaps it should be noted that, even though I am not following the proceedings live and have no intention whatsoever to do so, I think that there is a very slight chance of conviction if the former president's lawyers continue along a path that has, according to reports, enraged him and caused those who understand the whole proces to be unconstitutional to wonder if those lawyers can recover from what has been described as a haphazard and aimless presentation yesterday, Tuesday, February 9, 2021, the Feast of Saint Cyril of Alexandria and the Commemoration of Saint Apollonia. I don't know about you, but I have had enough with the business and am trying to prepare for the beginning of Lent one week from today, that is, on Wednesday, February 17, 2021.

Finally, there is need for non-tax-deductible financial gifts if any reader who has the means to do so and has not donated lately would like to donate at this time.

Thank you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint John of Matha, pray for us.

Jorge Puts His Faith in "Fraternity," Not Christ the King

The Argentine Apostate participated in the so-called International Day of Human Fraternity.

This is my commentary about such apostasy.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Jorge Flexes His Antipapal Muscles

The events associated with  so-called International Day of Human Fraternity will have taken place by the time most of the few people who continue to access this website come across this new commentary.

Nevertheless, however, the new commentary deals with the Argentine Apostate's efforts to blunt criticism of yet another of his acts of apostasy by reminding those who believe him be what he is not, that is, a true and legitimate Successor of Saint Peter, to obey the "magisterium" of his false religious sect and that no concessions would be made to those who do not.

Even a blind mouse can find cheese now and again.

Senor Jorge was correct about the necessity of obeying a true pope, but events such as the one transpiring today, Thursday, February 4, 2021, the Feast of Saint Andrew Corsini, contine to prove that he is not a true pope and that his religious sect is nothing other the counterfeit church of conciliarism, not the Catholic Church, she who is the spotless mystical spouse of her Divine Founder, Invisible Head and Divine Bridegroom, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for  us.

Saint Andrew Corsini, pray for us.

Republished: Jorge Signs Off on the One World Ecumenical Religion (2019)

As Jorge Mario Bergoglio is going to be participating in an act of apostasy called the “World Day of Human Fraternity” on Thursday, February 4, 2021, the Feast of Saint Andrew Corsini, I thought that it would apropos to republish this article from two years ago following “Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together.” A related commentary is in development as I continue to work on part ten of “Sin: More Deadly Than the Coronavirus.”

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

On the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary (2021)

Today is the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary, always the humble handmaid of the Lord who humbled herself this day, the last day of Christmastide, which ends after Holy Mass today, by submitting to the rituals of the law although she was not in need of such a ritualistic purification because of her Perpetual Virginity.

This is the day that Our Lady presented her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, in the same Temple where He would be found twelve years later answering questions of the rabbis, the same Temple whose curtain would be torn in two from top to bottom as He breathed His last on the wood of the Holy Cross to redeem us, thereby signifying the permanent end of the Old Covenant and the supersession of Judaism by Catholicism as the true religion. The aged Simeon, who waited patiently every day in the Temple for the fulfillment of the promise that God had made to him, that he would not die before his eyes had seen and his arms had beheld the Messiah, sent the first Sword of Sorrow plunging through Our Lady's Sorrowful and and Immaculate Heart when he prophesied that the Child he beheld would be destined for the rise and for the fall of man, a sign to be opposed, a Sign of Contradiction. We must never fear to be signs of contradiction in our own lives in imitation of the THE Sign of Contradiction, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, as He hung on the wood of the Holy Cross to redeem us as he was mocked and reviled by the very people from whose stock He had taken His Sacred Humanity.

We must be willing to suffer all manner of calumny and humiliation for the many times that we have preferred human respect to fidelity to Our Lord, for the many times we have refused to call upon Our Lady's maternal intercession, for the many times we have refused to "take sides," especially in our day by refusing to reject conciliarism and its ravenous wolves once and for all.

Although I am working on part ten of "Sin: More Deadly Than the Coronavirus," I suppose that Senor Jorge's "international day of Judeo-Masonic naturalism in advancement of the One World Ecumenical Religion, which is but an obsequious servant of the One World Government" will require some attention. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us!

On Septuagesima Sunday (2021)

Today is Septuagesima Sunday. 

Lent begins in but seventeen days.

Easter is exactly nine weeks way.

It is time to start our preparations for Lent, time to start thinking about the penances we are going to undertake starting on Ash Wednesday in order to make reparation for our sins and those of the whole world as we prepare to enter deep into the mysteries of the Paschal Triduum of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's Passion, Death, and Resurrection on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday. The purple vestments representing a penitential season of Holy Mother Church make their reappearance today to remind us that we must be deadly serious about the business of making the best Lent of our lives as we do not know whether this Lent will be our last one on the face of this earth--or whether we will even live to see the end of this particular Lent! Let us use this time well as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, praying as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit.

"Sin: More Deadly Than the Coronavirus, part ten," may take up to a week to complete. Thank you for your patience.

Our Lady of Dolors, pray for us.

Saint John Bosco, pray for us.

Republished: Saint John Bosco: Zealous for Souls Under the Very End

Today, January 31, 2021, is Seputagesima Sunday and the commemorated feast of the great Saint John Bosco, to whom we are very devoted. This is a revised reflection on an extraordinary priest who had a zeal for the salvation of souls in his youth, a zeal that would last until he died on this date in 1888, one hundred twenty-eight years ago.

Saint John Bosco stands a rebuke to everything that manner in which the conciliar revolutionaries refuse to seek converts to what they think is the Catholic Church and the manner in which they reaffirm unrepentant sinners in lives that could lead them to Hell for all eternity if they do not go to Confession and amend their lives. This brief reflection, written about nine years ago now, is an effort to capture the spirit of this magnificent teacher of the young, mystic and zealous apostle of souls.

It may take up  to seven days for the completion of "Sin: More Deadly Than the Coronavirus, part ten." I thank you in advance for your patience.
