On the Feast of Saint Anthony, the Hammer of Heretics

Today is the Feast of Saint Anthony of Padua, the Hammer of Heretics, who desired to die a martyr's death in an effort to convert Mohammedans following his transfer from the Order of Saint Augustine to the Order of Friars Minor. It was not God's Holy Will for Saint Anthony to die a martyr's death as he became ill upon arriving in Morocco and was then led as a result of shipwreck away from his native Portugal to Sicily, and from there to Italy, where his fame as a preacher and miracle worker began. (Saint Anthony’s desire to convert Mohammedans, of course, is not the spirit of the blaspheming heretics who constitute the hierarchy of the counterfeit church of conciliarism.)

Saint Anthony lived for only thirty-six years, teaching us that it is not the length of the years that matter. No, what matters to God is how we use the time given to us this very day, which could be our own last day on the face of this earth before our Particular Judgment, to know, love, and serve Him as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively through the Catholic Church. God is merciful to those of us who have sinned much by giving us length of years so that we might use our time well to make much reparation to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary for our sins.

Saint Anthony's work on earth was done when he was just thirty-six years old, whereupon his work for us in Heaven commenced. Dear, dear Saint Anthony, help us to find our way to Heaven, especially by being as devoted to the Most Blessed Sacrament and to the Mother of God as you were here on earth.

The next original article will be published by late this afternoon.

A blessed feast of Saint Anthony to you all!

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

The Green Jorge Strikes Again

The Green Jorge, who is ever so quiet when it comes to the daily slaugher of the innocent preborn--and who has given his full endorsement to the George Soros-funded schema of "palliative care" that dispatches innocent human beings in the name of "compassion," has spoken once again about "sustainable development goals." This is but a brief rejoinder.

Oh, speaking of the nefarious Soros, have you read that the Soros Fund Management owns a fifteen percent share in the horse that just won the Belmont Stakes and thus the triple crown of American thoroughbred horseracing, Justify? Yup.  See: A Secretive Investor in Justify: George Soros.

Another Bergoglio-related commentary is in the works. "Sober Up," part thirteen, will await the issuance of Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report on Thursday, June 14, 2018, the Feast of Saint Basil the Great.

On the (Transferred) Feast of the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary

This is a revised reflection in honor of the of the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which was instituted by Pope Pius XII in 1954. This feast is annually on May 31 at the conclusion of the month of May, which is the month of Our Lady, but is transferred this to this day, the first free date following the superseding Octave of the the Solemnity of Corpus Christi.

Every person on the face of this earth is called to honor Mary our Immaculate Queen. Every nation on this earth is called to give public honor to the Queen of Heaven and of Earth, Our Lady, she who made possible our very salvation by her perfect Fiat to the Holy Will of God the Father at the Annunciation. It is fitting that we end her month, the month of May, with this great feast as we hope end our lives with the help of her prayers so that we can enjoy an unending Easter Sunday of glory in Paradise as we give all adoration and worship to the Most Blessed Trinity and give her our due love, honor and gratitude.

Our Lady, Queen of Heaven and of Earth, pray for us.

Saints Primus and Felician, pray for us.

Living in A Supremely Absurd World

As it is now about forty minutes after Midnight on the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, there is time only to note that the current article is a commentary on the absurdities contained in the case of Masterpiece Cakemakers v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, June 4, 2018.

I also want to call to the attention of those who access this site even in its relatively dormant state four reflections on today’s glorious feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus: The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus: Remedy for the Cruelty of An Evil Age, Enthroning the True and Unsurpassed Love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus In Our Homes, Tender Mercies and No One Is A Stranger to the Sacred Heart.

A blessed Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus to you all!

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.

Our Lady of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us.

Saint Boniface: The Apostle of Germany

Before providing a brief introduction to this republished reflection on the life and missionary work of Saint Boniface, the Apostle of Germany, I want to apologize for the continued length of time between original articles. It would belabor the point to provide a daily medical bulletin, but a number of afflictions—some chronic, others of recent vintage that are by their nation chronic—have slowed me down considerably.

As I have noted on other occasions recently, I need to have most of a full day to complete a new article. The next such day will be tomorrow, the Seventh Day in the Octave of the Solemnity of Corpus Christi and the Commemoration of Saint Norbert, as I complete work on a commentary about yesterday’s decision of the Supreme Court of the United States of America in the case of Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd., et al. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, et al. Although a temporary reprieve for the owners of Masterpiece Cakeshop, the entire decision is premised on the acceptance of a legally recognized and protected class of citizens based solely upon their propensity to commit the sin of Sodom and its related vices. A nation whose laws do not recognize the binding nature of the Divine Law and the Natural Law as they have been entrusted to the teaching authority of the Catholic Church for their infallible and authoritative interpretation will wind up with situations wherein judges find themselves flummoxed by the intersection of the very secular principles that have gotten us to this point of absurdity.

Yes, I have read the entire decision and the concurring and dissenting opinions. Public Law (Constitutional Law, Administrative Law) was one of the minor fields in which I was examined prior to being granted permission to proceed with the doctoral dissertation forty-three years ago, and I taught it for thirty years. Thus it is that I have a few things to say on the decision and it absurdity. It is my expectation to have the article completed for posting by Thursday.

Once again, I apologize the slowness of original articles. I am doing the best that I can under the circumstances. Thanks for your understanding. Penance is truly better than ever in 2018, and I need all the penance that Our Lord desires to send me.

Today's republished offering is abrief reflection on the missionary work of Saint Boniface, the Apostle to Germany, who stands as a rebuke to the conciliar "popes" and their embrace of false religions. 

Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament, pray for us.


Saint Boniface, pray for us.

On The Solemnity of Corpus Christi: All Adoration, Praise and Thanksgiving Be Given to Our Eucharistic King

Today is the great Solemnity of Corpus Christi. This article, written a long time ago now and slightly revised over the years, is an exhortation to the readers of this site to spend more and more time in adoration before Our Beloved before His Real Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament if this is at all possible in your area.

Adoration is the first end of prayer, including the perfect prayer that is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in which Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ becomes Incarnate under the appearances of bread and wine when a men man, uttering mere words over the elements of the earth, calls Him down from Heaven. We must adore God with our whole mind, soul, heart, body and strength. To spend time before the Most Blessed Sacrament in prayer is a foretaste of Heavenly glories. Our goal in life is to behold the glory of the Beatific Vision of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost for all eternity in the company of Our Lady, Saint Joseph, our Guardian Angels (each of whom beholds the Beatific Vision as he tries to guide us home to Heaven!), our patron saints and all of the members of the Church Triumph, whose ranks we hope and pray will include our dearest and nearest relatives and friends. We must make time for the foretaste of Heavenly glories by means of profound Eucharistic Adoration in this life is we want to enjoy the glories of Heaven itself for all eternity.

There are infused graces that are flooded into the souls of those who spend time in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament, those souls who are conscious of the need to make reparation for their sins as they give thanksgiving to God for all of the favors, both spiritual and temporal, they have received and who recognize the need to petition God for the favors we need, both spiritual temporal, starting with an earnest petition each day that we be given the grace to have a holy and sacramentally-provided-for death. Our Lord stands ready to send us this infusion of graces through the loving hands of His Most Blessed Mother, who is mystically with us when we pray before her Divine Son’s Real Presence. All we need to do is to arrange our lives in such a way as to make time for prayer before Our Eucharistic King and Lord.

We must, of course, be conscious of our need to get to the Sacrament of Penance on a weekly basis, if possible, of course,in order that our reception of Our Lord’s Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity in Holy Communion will be worthy and fervent. The frequent, devout and worthy reception of Our Lord in Holy Communion gives strength even to those souls who have been steeped in one sin after another, those souls who have perhaps surrendered all too readily to the devil’s attacks upon them over the years:

And then come, and accuse me, saith the Lord: if your sins be as scarlet, they shall be made as white as snow: and if they be red as crimson, they shall be white as wool. If you be willing, and will hearken to me, you shall eat the good things of the land. (Isaias 1: 18-19.)

We must ask Our Lady on this great feast day of Corpus Christi, which, of course, is celebrated as an Octave in those chapels that use the Missal of Saint Pius V before it was “reformed” by the revolutionary efforts of Annibale Bugnini and Ferdinando Antonelli in the 1950s, to help give us more and more graces to recognize the Most Sacred Heart of her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, beats for with great love in the Most Blessed Sacrament.

We must ask Our Lady to help us approach the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart with such fervor and devotion that we will consider it as a great loss if ever there is a day we are unable to get a true offering of Holy Mass and unable to spend at least some time with her Divine Son, Who is the Prisoner of Love in tabernacles today just as He was the Prisoner of her Virginal and Immaculate Womb from the time of His Incarnation to the day of His Nativity.

Today should be devoted entirely to gratitude to Eucharistic King for the great gift of Himself in Holy Communion and our ability worship Him in His Real Presence even though He sitteth at the right hand of God the Father in Heaven. What a mystery of love. Words fail.

A blessed Solemnity of Corpus Christi to you all!

An original article, which is a follow-up to Sunday's posting, will be published in a short while.

By Their Fruits

Perhaps it is just as well that the article that was ready for publication about forty-eight hours ago before it went “poof” into cyberspace was not to be rewritten. It was better to wait for the actual results from the Irish plebiscite on Friday, May 25, 2018, Whit Friday and the Commemoration of Pope Saint Gregory VII and Pope Saint Urban I, before composing a new article.

Well, this is a new article, although it contains very familiar themes to those who have been readers of my writing for the past two decades or so.

That the Irish have voted in favor of decriminalized baby-slaughter should surprise us not in the slightest as evil must flow from the lies upon which Modernity is founded and with which the counterfeit church of conciliarism has made its “official reconciliation.”

Work will begin tomorrow, the Feast of Saint Augustine of Canterbury, on “Sober Up, part thirteen. Spoiler alert: Although I will once again stipulate the fact that the Deep State, directed then as now by former President Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetro, has sought to undermine and to overthrow President Donald John Trump, much evil is being done by the current administration that cannot go without comment and comment upon it I will.

Finally, my writing continues to be impeded by nagging health issues, which have included the addition of a skin condition called Rosacea. (I am not even a consumer of alcoholic drinks, and I never have been!) This is penance that I deserve for my own sins, but it is one I would not wish on anyone else. I am, though, thankful for the penance and its accompanying sleepless nights as our goal is to rest for all eternity in Heaven. We must bear the cross with patience, love and gratitude in this passing, mortal vale of tears.

A blessed Trinity Sunday to you all.

A Reminder on Trinity Sunday: We Adore the Only True God, the Blessed Trinity

Today is Trinity Sunday and the Commemoration of the First Sunday after Pentecost and of Saint Bende the Venerable, thus beginning the second half of the liturgical year that began with the First Sunday of Advent.

The mystery of the Most Holy Trinity was revealed to us by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Although there are clear references in the text of the Old Testament to a plurality of Persons in the Divine Godhead ("Let us make man in our own image"), human reason, which can come to the conclusion that God exists, is insufficient to know about the existence of the Most Blessed Trinity. Our Lord Himself, the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity made Man in Our Lady's Virginal and Immaculate Womb, had to reveal this to us. The doctrine of the Most Holy Trinity is rejected by all infidels and misrepresented by most Protestant sects.

To wit, many Protestants, especially in the evangelical and fundamentalist sects, are "baptized" in "the name of the Lord Jesus," not in "The Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost," which is invalid on its face. This means that many hundreds of thousands of Protestants are not even Christians despite their thinking that they are. We must defend the doctrine of the Most Blessed Trinity with our very lives if necessary, having frequent recourse to the making of the Sign of the Cross throughout the day. This is a custom that is held dear by many Spaniards and Latin Americans.

Indeed, the jockey who rode Nyquist to victory in the 2016 Kentucky Derby, which was held on Saturday, May 7, 2016, the Feast of Saint Stanislaus, did so, something that was shown in slow motion as a replay of the post-race "cooling off" of the horse’s trot was broadcast. This should put many Catholics in this country to shame for fearing to make invoke the very sign of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost when in public or in the presence of Protestant relatives, friends or neighbors.

Remember, Jorge Mario Bergoglio did not want to give a "blessing," not that he is capable of giving one as a lay Jesuit revolutionary, that is, when address the crowd on the Capitol Mall in Washington, District of Columbia, on Thursday, September 24, 2015, the Feast of Our Lady of Ransom, for fear of offending "unbelievers."

An original aritlce on the Irish plebescite in favor baby-slaughter will be published in a few moments.

A blessed Trinity Sunday to you all.

Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity, pray for us.

Saint Barnabas, pray for us. 

Jorge Blasphemes God (Again!) to Tickle the Itching Ears of Men

[A brief article about the referendum in Ireland today, Whit Friday, was ready to be posted when its entire content was lost forever after this site's software program required me to login again. Poof! 

[Pray for Ireland today as voters choose, in effect, to permit their national legislature, the Oireachtas, to "legalize" the slaughter of the innocent preborn in their mothers' wombs by surgical means at least through the first three months of these babies' lives. Pray to Our Lady of Knock. Pray! 

[I will rewrite the article later today. Penance is better than ever in 2018.]

Jorge Mario Bergoglio had one of those "private" chit-chats recently. Like so many of the other such confabs he has had in the past, however, what was "private" was blurted out pretty publicly, which is exactly what this wretched blasphemer from Argentina desired.

May God have mercy on us all!

A commentary on the ongoing coup should follow in a day or two.

Today, Whit Wednesday, is an Ember Day. Those between the ages of twenty-one and fifty-nine are required to fast, and all over the age of seven are to take meat (or products made from meat) at the principal meal.

Our Lady of the Cenacle, pray for us.
