Saint Hyacinth, O.P., Gave No Quarter to Heresy and Schism

Today is the Feast of Feast of Saint Hyacinth, O.P., the great Apostle of the Northland and one of the first members of the Order of Preachers founded by Saint Dominic de Guzman. (Today is also the third day within the Octave of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Octave Day of Saint Lawrence the Deacon.)

Saint Hyacinth's great zeal for souls and his desire to convert pagans out of their diabolical superstitions into the true Faith, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there can be no true social order. Saint Hyacinth, who had such a great and abiding love for Our Lady, who favored him with apparitions, stands in quite a contrast with Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI and his successor, Jorge Mario Bergoglio. Both of these heretics have praised the very false religions that Saint Hyacinth—and every other Catholic missionary—sought to eradicate from the face of the earth by seeking the unconditional conversion of their adherents to the false religion. The difference between Saint Hyacinth's fidelity and apostasy of the conciliar "popes" stark. It is right there in black and white for all who have the grace to see. See for yourself. As considerable time was spent adding links, including a complete library of articles that have appeared about Bergoglio on this site in the fifty-three months, four days, to the preface of this revised article in order to provide readers with a useful and handy resource for those who are new to this site and want to review past articles on Jorge Mario Bergoglio, it has been impossible to add more recent examples of the endless reaffirmations that the Argentine Apostate has given to those who adhere to false religions, including Talmudism, from which he derives much of his "intellectual" and "spiritual" sustenance. In other words, "Pope Francis" is a stooge and servant of Antichrist.

On the Feast of Saint Joachim, the Father of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Saint Joachim, the father of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God and the Mediatrix of All Graces, knew the contempt that would be visited upon His Divine Grandson, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, sent himself into voluntary exile after he was denounced by a priest of the Old Dispensation for not producing a child after twenty years of marriage to his wife, our good Saint Anne.

It was during his exile that Saint Joachim was visited by an angel, who reminded him of the fact that Abraham's wife, Sarah, did not conceive a child until she was ninety years old, telling him that his wife, Saint Anne, would conceive a daughter named Mary, who would be the Mother of God. Saint Joachim and Saint Anne brought their daughter to the Temple when she was three years old, giving their long-awaited child back to the good God Who had given them to her so that she could be the Mother of their own Saviour, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. This should teach us to do everything possible to foster vocations to the priesthood and the consecrated religious life among our children, so that we can give them back to God so as to yield a spiritual bounty of souls in His service, especially in this time of apostasy and betrayal.

The revised and much enlarged text of this article also includes a reflection and description of the life of Saint Roch, whose feast is celebrated today in those churches named in his honor, as found in Dom Prosper Gueranger’s The Liturgical Year.

Also, I would like to call the attention of this site's readers to an article written by Dr. Paul Byrne, who has certainly taught me much in the past twenty-three years since I first met him in Toledo, Ohio: Was The Death of Charlie Gard Hastened?. Please do take the time to read this article.

Finally, although I had hoped to have my next commentary completed by now, it was not possible for me to complete my work yesterday, August 15, 2018, the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This entire day will be spent completing the commentary, which will be very short but has required a good deal of listing of various documents.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Joachim and Anne, pray for us!

Saint Roch, pray for us.

On the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (2018)

Today is the feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. She who was conceived without stain of Original Sin and who committed no Actual Sins in her life did not have to have her body undergo the corruption of the grave, although she truly died and was buried after her death.

Separated physically from her Divine Son after His Ascension into Heaven on Ascension Thursday, although she received Him in Holy Communion, Our Lady was Assumed body and soul into Heaven to plead for us with her Divine Son as the Queen of Heaven and of Earth, the Queen to whom every man must pledge his heart's oblation, the Queen whom every nation must honor publicly with Rosary Processions.

 Our Lady wants us to be in Heaven with her for all eternity. She wants our bodies to rise up incorrupt and glorious from the grave on the Last Day at the General Judgment of the Living and Dead so that our bodies can be reunited with our souls for all eternity in the glory of Heaven.

We need to ask her to help us make such perfect reparation for our sins in this passing, mortal vale of tears that we will pay the debt of what we our for our sins now rather than in the fires of Purgatory. We need to ask her to help us to be serious about seeking sanctity as the consecrated slaves of her Divine Son through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart.

What are we waiting for?

It is my hope to complete work on my next original article at some point on this feast day. There have been new twists to our continuing saga that have taken up a good deal of our time, Penance is better than ever in 2018! (There is little more that I can say about the how the conciliar hierarchy, such as it is, recruited, promoted, protected and covered-up for the sorts of moral crimes documented by the Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania than what I have written so many times in the past, including most recenty in , and I am certainly not going to address that sordid subject on this glorious feast day and Holy Day of Obligation. Perhaps next week.)

A blessed Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary to you all.

Our Lady, Queen Assumed into Heaven, pray for us.

Saint Clare of Assisi: In The Service and at the Command of Lady Poverty

As the ongoing campaign of harassment being waged against us has entered a new phase in the past two days, "all" I can offer you today, the Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost, is a republished reflection on the life of Saint Clare of Assisi that was published oringinally two years ago. The reflection speaks to the timeless virtues of detachment from the world, self-denial, modesty and a total embrace of holy poverty for love of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and His Holy Church.

This reflection emphasizes Saint Clare’s rejection of worldliness and worldly pleasures. No matter what our own sins and failings with respect to worldliness might be now and have been in the past, Saint Clare’s life and holy example inspires us to quit the world once and for all and to prepare for the world to come by storing up treasures in Heaven that do not rust or fade away, and that no thief can take away from us.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Willing Accomplices in the Promotion of Grave Evils

[Alert: Someone who has nothing better to do with his time is attempting to impersonate me by using an e-mail address that is not mine:, Please disregard any e-mails you receive from this address and I ask the readers of this site to write to me if anyone receives an e-mail from that address. My own e-mail address is, and that is the only e-mail address that I use. Disregard all others. Thank you. Saint Philomena, pray for us.]

Our Federal taxpayer dollars are being used in a supposedly “pro-life” presidential administration to underwrite the “transplantation” of “fresh” aborted baby parts into the immune system of mice, something that is labeled as the “humanized mice” program by the wholly-owned subsidiary of the Big Pharmaceutical industry, the United States Food and Drug Administration (F.D.A.)

There will be no outrage about this expressed by the apostates in the so-called United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, who are too busy at this time praising “Pope Francis” for “changing” the irreformable Catholic teaching on the death penalty, which is a Natural Law right of the civil state, duly constituted, to impose upon malefactors found guilty of heinous crimes after the discharge of the due process of law, and endorsing the “Palliative Care and Hospice Education and Training Act” that was the subject of Bought-and-Paid-For Stooges of the Merchants of Death five days ago.

Please continue to pray for us in the midst of the current campaign of harassment and intimidation by the local ne'er-do-well, for whose conversion we are praying very fervently, and his confederates. Thank you.

Saint Philomena: Our Ever-Reliable Wonder Worker

This is a brief reflection, written originally in 2009 and revised over the years, to honor our great Wonder Worker, Saint Philomena, on this her feast day, which is also the feast of Saints Tiburtius and Susanna.

Although our Wonder Worker is not on the universal calendar of the Roman Rite, her cultus was confirmed by none other than Pope Saint Pius X. That's good enough for me! Jansenists and rationalists will have to find some other website to surf as this one makes no room for any skepticism about Saint Philomena and the honor and power with which she has been crowned by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

This reflection includes text from a 1945 book, Wonder Worker: Saint Philomena, Virgin Martyr, which was written by Cathy Hallack and published with ecclesiastical approbation of the Archdiocese of Dublin, Ireland, in 1945, which takes note of Saint Philomena's vow of virginity, which she made at eleven years of age, and mentions the fact that Diocletian was married to Prisca from 286 A.D. to the time he resigned as Roman emperor in 305 A.D. This means that Diocletian's proposal of marriage was indeed adulterous and bigamous, analogous to that of Herod the Tetrarch himself.

It was thus very touching for us to receive Mass propers for the Wonder worker's feast from an 1898 Missal that included an entire Mass in her holy honor. This gift was sent to us by a friend of ours, one who does not agree with us concerning the true state of the Church Militant in this time of apostasy and betrayal but has not cast us out into the wilderness and down the Orwellian memory hole as lunatics These Mass propers are a tremendous treasure, one that our friend wanted us to share with true priests so that they can offer her Mass, perhaps as a votive Mass on a ferial day, in honor of our Wonder Worker, Saint Philomena. We thank our friend very much for making these propers available for those true priests who may not have had them prior to now. The link to the Mass text can be found within the body of the republished reflection: Feast of Saint Philomena Mass Propers. A Latin-English translation of these propers completed by Mr. Michael Creighton can be found by clicking here----or by scrolling below.)

We are very devoted to Saint Philomena and pray the chaplet in her honor as a family every Saturday evening after Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary. I pray her chaplet every day. 

Our Lady of the Universal Living Rosary Association, pray for us.

Saint Philomena, pray for us.

Latin-English Mass Propers for the Feast of Saint Philomena (translated by Michael Creighton)

Well, I was just about to post a new article when the cursor of my four-year-old notebook computer moved on its own accord, something that has been a chronic problem with machine since I purchased it in July of 2014, and I press a key that deleted the four open pages in the window containing the new article. Although the text is saved in a Word format, I had spent a good deal of time formatting it for publication on this site on the Drupal platform that has been used in the past four years. I will get to that task early this afternoon.

Before reposting my reflection on our great Wonder Worker, Saint Philomena, however, I did want to provide the readers of this site with an English translation of the Mass Propers for the Feast of Saint Philomena. The translation was done by Mr. Michael Creighton, who is also working on a translation of the Office for today’s feast in honor of our Wonder Worker.

Although this is not a universal feast of the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church, this is a day when a Votive Mass or Requiem Mass may be offered). Those of us who are devoted to Saint Philomena, therefore, should express our gratitude to Mr. Creighton for his hard work that provides us with spiritual enhancement for this feast day.

Revised: Saint John Mary Vianney Served Souls Until His Death

Today is the feast of Saint John Mary Vianney and the Commemoration of the Vigil of Saint Lawrence the Deacon and of Saint Romanus.

Saint John Mary Vianney is the patron of diocesan priests, a man who humbly recognized that he was not the brightest pupil, that he was, to use even his own description, slow in his studies. He had great difficulty learning his Latin. Other studies came hard to him as well. He did not give up. Helped by a wonderful mentor, Father Balley, who had worked as a carpenter during the French Revolution so as to hide his identity as a Catholic priest as he offered Mass in various hideaways and without any "communion" with the bishops and priests of the "constitutional church," John Mary Vianney persevered time and time and time again, praying to Saint John Francis Regis for help and guidance.

Yes, he was tempted to quit his studies, believing himself to unworthy of priestly ordination because of his lack of intellectual aptitude. Father Balley told him very pointedly, "You've decided to give in to the devil?"

That knocked some sense into our Saint, and it should knock some sense into any young man today who might have experienced some difficulties and perhaps even gross injustices in their own pursuit of the priesthood.

Never give up. We need priests, especially now in this time of apostasy and betrayal.

Always close to Our Lady, Saint John Mary Vianney was brought to the point of his priestly ordination on August 13, 1815. His superiors judged that his moral qualities had overcome any academic deficiencies that would have held others back from being ordained to the priesthood, and they were vindicated in their judgment by the long and devoted service that he gave to the people of Ars.

Oh yes, sure, he tried to run away from his people on three occasions, wanting to seek the solitude of a monastery. Each time, however, he responded to the pleas of his sheep who loved their shepherd, who spent so much time in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament and in the confessional to hear the confessions of the thousands of people who flocked from all over the world to the merits of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus applied to their souls through his priestly ministry, and returned home to Ars.

Saint John Mary Vianney, who knew failure in his studies for the priesthood, was a firm supporter of the "patron of failures," Pauline Jaricot, the foundress of Society of the Propagation of the Faith and the Universal Living Rosary Association, and zealously devoted to the cause of our great wonder worker, Saint Philomena.

Saint John Mary Vianney spent himself tirelessly in behalf of the flock that was entrusted to his pastoral care. We need to invoke his intercession so that our own true bishops and priests will be fortified by his example as they seek to serve faithful Catholics, the scattering and wandering sheep of this time of apostasy and betrayal, unto eternity.

Work has started on my next commentary. However, most of today will spent dealing with the aftermath of the events of Monday evening. More cameras must be purchased and a witness's statement needs to be notorized and presented to the proper authorities. Penance is indeed better than ever in 2018. It is my hope to hae my next commentary published by Saturday as I do not think that much can be done on it today given the time that must be spent on protecting ourselves as best as possible from madness.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint John Mary Vianney, the Cure of Ars, pray for us.

Bought-and-Paid-For Agents of the Merchants of Death

The United States House of Representatives recently passed The Palliative Care and Hospice Education and Training Act on Monday, July 23, 2018, the Feast of Saint Apollinaris, to expand the reach of the modern merchants of death in order to “ration” healthcare according to the “quality of life” assessments made by deathcare “teams.”

Readers of this site, few in number though they imay be, know that my work attempts to focus on root causes of problems rather than rend garments and gnash teeth over the contemporary consequences of those root causes. This commentary is no different.

Finally, as I noted nearly seventeen hours ago, the situation with our ne’er-do-well neighbor and the children he is training to follow in his nefarious footsteps continues unresolved as law enforcement officials will do nothing even though there are two eyewitnesses to happened about twenty-three hours ago. Please continue to pray for as and I would appreciate whatever non-tax-deductible gifts to purchase the additional security cameras, accessories and lighting that we need.

We live in a world filled with injustice. Then again, each of us is frequently unjust by means of our sins. We need to be mindful of our own need to make reparation for our sins as we pray for the conversion of others as well as ourselves.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Transfigured in All Glory Atop Mount Thabor

[Update on the Feast of Saint Cajetan and the Commemoration of Saint Donatus.

[Although it was my intention to complete my next article for posting this morning, August 7, 2018, I learned while en route home from running errands connected with getting accessories to our security system that the ne'er-do-well who despises us used his son and a friend of his son to trespass onto our property and aim BB guns, which local law forbids minors to own or use, at Lucy's goats. A neighbor caught them in the act, surprising them when she told them that they did not belong on our property. Law enforcement officials came out, speaking with Sharon and our neighbor. It is unclear what will be done, although it does not appear that much is going to happen to the man and his wife, who are contributing to the deliquency of minors.

[I do know, however, that we have to get three more security cameras in addition to additional one that I purchased yesterday to protect more of the property. This means purchasing three more twelve volt solar panel battery chargers and two more twelve volt batteries in addition to security lights to help illuminate the property better to afford the cameras a greater range of distance in the dark. 

[While we did receive two unexpected donations yesterday, one went to assist in the house payment and part of another was spent on getting the first additional camera, the solar panel and other accessories. Any help that can be provided at this time would be appreciated.

[As I have noted in the past nearly five weeks now, this situation is occurring with the Providence of God and it is a chastisement being visited upon us for our sins. While I do not particularly like the man who is causing these problems, I will his good, which means his conversion away from his self-hatred and displaced anger to the true Faith so that he can see in all others the Divine impress and treat them as he would Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. One must seek justice without vengeance while recognizing that crosses such as this one are a sign of God's merciful love for us erring sinners.

[The graces won for us by Our Lord on Calvary and that flow into our souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces, are sufficient for whatever suffering occurs in our lives according to the workings of God's Holy Providence. We remain in supplication to Our Lady and Saint Philomena in these present difficulties, mindful that we have much to pay back for our sins.

[Please continue to pray for us.]

Today is the great Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on Mount Thabor in the presence of the Apostles Peter, James and John and in the company of Moses and Elias. God the Father repeated the proclamation that He had made as His Co-Equal Son made Flesh in Our Lady's Virginal and Immaculate Womb was baptized by His cousin, Saint John the Baptist in the Jordan River prior to the assumption of His Public Ministry, "This is My beloved Son, hear yet Him."

Our Lord was transfigured in the glory that He shared with the God the Father and God the Holy Ghost for all eternity in Heaven in order to show forth His Sacred Divinity to Saints Peter, the first Pope, Saint James, the first Bishop of Jerusalem and the first of the Apostles to be martyred, and Saint James's brother, Saint John, the beloved Apostle and the Apostle of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, to help console them during the events of His Passion and Death. It is our goal to be transfigured in glory for all eternity in Heaven.

The only path to the heavenly Mount Thabor, however, is by climbing atop Mount Calvary every day of our lives, willingly bearing our crosses in reparation for our sins and those of the world as we offer whatever merit we gain for the patient and joyful endurance of these crosses to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Indeed, our climb to Heaven by ascending first to Mount Calvary is signified every day a true bishop or a true priest completes the prayers at the foot of the altar and ascends the three steps (mystically symbolic of the Thee Persons of the Most Blessed Trinity and of the three stages of the interior life) to the altar itself.

If we desire to be transfigured in all glory in Heaven we must, therefore, be willing to be shamed and humiliated by the the ignominy associated with the Holy Cross. The glories of Heaven are worth such temporary shame and humiliation and ignominy, are they not?

May Our Lady, who awaits us in the heavenly Mount Thabor and intercedes for us from there, help us to ascend to Mount Calvary every day in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass so that we can keep her company at the foot of the Cross every day our lives as a a preparation for spending all eternity in the glories of Heaven with her and Saint Joseph and all of the angels and the saints.

A blessed Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to you all.
