An original article, Jorge's Ship of Fools, was published about forty-five minutes after Midnight this morning, Thursday, January 1, 2015, the Feast of the Circumcision of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Its description can be found below on this main page. A late-evening update dealing with the death late this afternoon of Mario Matthew Cuomo, the father of Andrew Mark Cuomo, who is featured in part of today's original commentary, is found at the end of this update.
Two reflections, Another Year to Serve Our Lord through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary and To Fulfill All Rigtheousness, have been republished as well.
Finally, I want to provide the readers of this site with a link to a wonderful display of images that show some of the beauties of the Catholic Church prior to the appearance of the Great Usurper, Angelo Roncalli/John XXIII, on the balcony of the Basilica of Saint Peter on October 28, 1958, the Feast of Saints Simon and Jude. These images might help some younger people, those who have never seen the beauties of the true Catholic Faith, to realize the devastation that has been wrought by the conciliar revolution: Behold the Beauties of the Catholic Fath and the Piety and Modesty of her Children.
A blessed Feast of the Circumcision of Our Lord and a happy and holy New Year of Our Lord 2015 to you all!
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
Saint Joseph, pray for us.
Saint Stephen, pray for us.
Saint John the Evangelist, pray for us.
The Holy Innocents, pray for us.
A late evening update:
The noted Catholic attorney Mr. James Bendell sent me an e-mail this evening that contained a link to a New York Daily News story about the death of the man whose son was the subject of part of today's original commentary. Yes, former New York Governor Mario Matthew Cuomo died at 5:15 p.m., Eastern Standard Time, in his apartment in the Borough of Manhattan in the City of New York, New York, just hours after his son, Andrew Mark Cuomo, was sworn in for a second term as New York's governor.
Although Cuomo was undoubtedly a man who was devoted to his family, his conception of the Catholic Faith was based on his discipleship of the theological and biological evolutionist, the late Father Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, S.J. He lived long enough to his own brand of supposedly "social justice Catholicism" come into its own with the "election" of Jorge Mario Bergoglio on Wednesday, March 13, 2013. This false gospel, however, leaves no room for the innocent preborn, and Mario Matthew Cuomo was nothing if not completely demagogic in his support of the nonexisent "right" of a woman to kill her child despite his supposed "personal opposition" to baby-killing. It was always curious that Cuomo's "personally opposed to abortion but can't impose my morality" approach to abortion under cover of the civil law never prevented him from using his personal opposition to the death penalty to veto legislation restoring it in the State of New York despite widespread public support. Cuomo helped to condemn the innocent to death and sought protect the guilty from execution after the administration of the due process of law, a due process he believed that the preborn did not deserve.
Yet it is that Mario Matthew Cuomo will be buried out of a Jesuit church on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Saint Ignatius Church, and heralded with eulogies aplenty. Cuomo was enabled in life by the likes of the late Joseph Sullivan, an auxiliary "bishop" of the Diocese of Brooklyn, and he will be heralded in death by more than a handful of conciliar clerics, possibly even by Jorge Mario Bergoglio himself by means of some communication of condolence. Possibly.
I take back nothing of anything that I have written about the late Governor Mario Matthew Cuomo. Nothing, including the article posted earlier today. Another article, Figlio di Sfachim, was published a year ago, although it contained some material that had been featured before in Mario Pilate, Pontius Cuomo and "Lucky" Mario May Not Be So "Lucky" In The End.
It is a terrible thing to die after having support evils that cry out to Heaven for vengeance, no less doing so in a vitriotic, righteous, sanctimonious and demagogic manner. May God have mercy on the soul of Mario Matthew Cuomo and on us all in this time when Catholics in "good standing" in the conciliar structures celebrate sin and protect it under the cover of the civil law.
