Saint Rose of Lima, T.O.P., Shows Us the Difference Between Heaven and Hell

This is a brief and very sightly revised version of my reflection on the life of Saint Rose of Lima, a member of the Third Order of Penance of the Order of Preachers of Saint Dominic de Guzman.

Among many other works in her devout life of prayer and austere penances, Saint Rose, who lived among a cluster of saints in Lima, Peru, exhorted the people of Lima to gather in their churches and pray their Rosaries to turn back a pending invasion of their city by a fleet of those virulent anti-Catholics, the Dutch Calvinists. Those hideous people with their diabolical beliefs that have nothing at all to do with Christianity turned back as a result of the Rosaries that were prayed to repel them in their designs to invade Lima and to sack Catholic churches and to desecrated the Most Blessed Sacrament images of the Mother of God.

May we pray to Saint Rose of Lima so that we will remain faithful to the daily recitation of Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary as the powerful weapon, after Holy Mass itself, to turn back the enemies of Christ the King in the world and in the counterfeit church of conciliarism.

Another Front in the Conciliar Civil War, part two

As I noted two days ago, Jorge Mario Bergoglio is not going anywhere. Oh, various conciliar “bishops” are calling an investigation of his covering-up for Theodore Edgar McCarrick. However, Bergoglio is already showing his trademarked defiance.

This commentary focuses on some of the reactions to “Archbishop” Carlo Maria Vigano’s courageous statement that came that was written on August 25, 2018, and reminds readers that conciliarism is not and can never be Catholicism.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pay for us.

Saint John the Baptist: Beheaded by Those Who Enjoy Bergoglio's Favor Today

Today is the Feast of the Beheading of Saint John the Baptist and the Commemoration of Saint Sabina. I am republishing a reflection on this feast that was substantially enlarged and revised last year with a few new revisions.  

The next original article on this site is being written. It is follow-up to the article posted on Monday. There is more work to do on it that would require me to stay up another three or four hours. However,  I should be able to post it by later after recording a video presentation on the subject. 

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.

Saint John the Baptist, pray for us.

Another Front in the Conciliar Civil War, part one

The former conciliar “papal” nuncio to the United States of America, “Archbishop” Carlo Maria Vigano, has written a little letter about Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his knowledge of Theodore Edgar McCarrick’s perversity. Perhaps you have heard about it?

This is but a small way of offering a bit of commentary on the matter, although I will give yo a spoiler alert: I do not believe that Bergoglio is going anywhere (other than to eternal perdition if he does not abjure his errors and convert to the Catholic Faith before he dies, that is) as he is so arrogant, so sanctimonious and so defiant of all that is true and good that he is simply going to use his screeds at the Casa Santa Marta to vent his rage at Vigano while relying upon the likes of Blase Cupich and Donald Wuerl to provide him with support and comfort.

Remember this, however: the conciliar church is not of God. Do not be fooled by the war between the Girondist/Menshevik conciliar revolutionaries and the Jacobin/Bolshevik conciliar revolutionaries.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.

Saint Louis IX, King of France: Christ the King's Humble Exemplar and Viceroy

Today  is the Feast of Saint Louis IX, King of France, that great exemplar of the Social Reign of Christ the King. Saint Louis was taught by his holy mother, Blessed Blanche of Castile, to prefer death rather to commit a deliberate Mortal Sin. He heard two Masses a day and was a member of the Third Order of Saint Francis, whose patron saint he remains to this day.

Saint Louis strove to rule according to the Mind of Christ the King as He had deposited It exclusively in the Catholic Church, recognizing that he, Louis IX, would have to answer to Christ the King at the moment of his own Particular Judgment for how he ruled his subjects. His letter to his son Philip is a succinct summary of the principles of Catholic Social Teaching. It is a model for how everyone in public life should conduct himself in order to please Christ the King as the devoted client of Our Lady, she who is our Immaculate Queen.

As we had some difficulties with a different neighbor in the past few days who asked us to return a goat that they had given us without any strings or preconditions nearly three years ago, the original article that I had planned to post at this time has been delayed. Our most recent set of "difficulties" have been resolved by choosing not to fight the unjust demand by getting a young goat to replace the one that had been given. We live in a world of rank emotionalism, and no amount of reasoning is going to work with people who have the emotional maturity of toddlers as they get carried away with sentimentality without having said a word or given any indication of their change-of-heart after all this time. Oh well, souls are expensive and I, for one have many sins for which to make reparation. Just another day in rural America! 

Vivat Christus Rex!

Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon.

Saint Louis IX, pray for us.

Our Remedy for the Ills of a Sick World: The Immaculate Heart of Mary

[I had formatted this article for republication yesterday morning and had reached the point of pressing the button to post it.  To my complete and utter horror, though I found this afternoon, Thursday, August 23, 2018, the Feast of Saint Philip Benizi and the Commemoation of the Vigil of Saint Bartholomew, that it got lost in cyberspace. It vanished. It went poof! Thus, as August is the month of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I am hereby publishng my reflection for yesterday's feast day. I hope to have the next original article competed by tomorrow morning. Thank you.]

Yesterday was the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, to which the month of August is devoted, that heart that was pierced with Seven Swords of Sorrow during the Life of her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus was formed out of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. These twin hearts of matchless love suffered as one and they beat as one while on earth and they have beat as one in Heaven since Our Lady was Assumed into Heaven body and soul after her death.

Our Lady's Immaculate Heart was unstained by Original Sin or Actual Sins. The Immaculate Heart of the Mother of God, therefore, was capable of a purity of love of God and of her fellow men that is almost indescribable. Our Lady's Most Pure, Most Holy Heart despises the sins that caused her Divine Son to suffer in His Sacred Humanity during His Passion and Death but at the same time is full of a perfect and completely pure maternal compassion for erring sinners such as you and me.

Our Lord, showing us His infinite compassion for us erring sinners, has sent us His Most Blessed Mother to provide us with her maternal assistance to get home to Heaven as members of His true Church founded upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope.

We have been given the Rosary, the Brown Scapular of Mount Carmel, the Miraculous Medal, and the Green Scapular through her loving hands, through which flow the graces won for us by the shedding of Our Lord's Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross.

Her apparition to Juan Diego and the miraculous image of herself she left on his tilma helped to convert millions of Indians to the true Faith in the Americas.

Our Lady ratified Pope Pius IX's solemn proclamation of her Immaculate Conception by proclaiming herself to Saint Bernadette Soubirous to be the Immaculate Conception on March 25, 1858. And Our Lady's appearance in the Cova da Iria from May 13, 1917, to October 13, 1917, gave us Heaven's Peace Plan, one that runs through her Immaculate Heart.

We must endeavor at all times to fulfill, as far as we are able in this time of apostasy and betrayal, Our Lady's Fatima Message in our own lives, especially by praying as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit and by living penitentially as the consecrated slaves of her Divine Son through her own Immaculate Heart.

The era of apostasy and betrayal will end when the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is made manifest. We can play our roles, small though they may be, in helping to bring about this triumph.

What are we waiting for?

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now, and at the hour of our death.

Saints Timothy, Hippolytus, and Symphorian, pray for us.

The Voice That Should Make the Conciliar Revolutionaries Quake: Father Demetrius Gallitzin

[Late night update on Sunday, August 19, 2018: The next original commentary for this site, which, as noted below, was in the proces of being written when today's republished and revised article was posted, will focus closely on "Bishop" Robert Morlino's very good letter detailing the simple fact that the crisis facing what he thinks is the Catholic Church in the United States of America is not about pederasty but has been brought on the systematic recruitment, retention and promotion of homosexuals in what he thinks is the prisethood and the hierarchy of the Catholic Church. There is much to say. Given the limitations of time, however, I may not be able to complete my work until Wednesday, the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Mind you, "Bishop" Morlino is a supporter of the conciliar agenda, but credit must be given when it is deserving. This is one such instance, although I have criticized him the past for his embrace of the "seamless garment" and for his belief that the late Edward Moore Kennedy's support for "universal health care" was admirable (see  More Rationalizations and Distortions). Thank you.

Although I am working on another entirely original commentary, I am also working on trying to put out anthologies of my commentaries and spiritual reflections (as well as adapting my doctoral dissertation from 1977 for both and academic and general audience) into book form. It was in the process of reviewing past articles that I found one from nine years ago that contained wonderful defenses of the Catholic Faith against Protestantism that were made by Father Demetrius Gallitizin, a Russian émigré who labored in the Allegheny Mountains of western Pennsylvania.

Father Gallitizin’s spirited and manly defense of the Holy Faith, including refuting what he termed the damnable error that the Catholic Church can teach or suborn error, stands in contrast with the entire ethos of conciliarism and serves as a rebuke also to those in the “resist while recognize” movement who think that a true pope can teach error. The original article has been revised for republication at this time in order to give a bit of due attention to the Argentine Apostate.

There will be two more original articles before attention is turned more or less full-time of producing the books, although I suppose that the Argentine Apostate’s upcoming trip to Ireland will require me to do more penance for my many sins that commenting upon the inevitable witches’ brew that he will concoct there for public consumption.

Jorge Keeps Moving the Goalposts

This is a very brief commentary that is designed to demonstrate that Catholics within the structures of counterfeit church of conciliarism who are huffing and puffing right now over Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s abolition of the death penalty (see Capital Chaos: Francis Adherents scramble to explain Catechism Change on Death Penalty (Part 1)) from the so-called Catechism of the Catholic Church will be huffing and puffing when “Pope Francis” “changes,” for example, Catholic teaching that sodomite acts are intrinsically evil or decides to use the catechism of the conciliar cult to “normalize” adultery and fornication as having elements of “true love” and that those who mutilate themselves in the futile effort to change the gender given them by God have “civil rights” and must be recognized for the special “gifts” they have been given.

None of what has happened in the past sixty years has come from the Catholic Church, and nothing that comes from the Occupied Vatican on the West Bank of the Tiber River and its equally occupied branch offices (archdiocesan and diocesan chanceries, seminaries, professional schools, universities, schools, parishes, convents, catechetical institutes, “lay movements,” etc.) throughout the world in the future can will come from the deepest reaches of hell, not from the spotless, virginal mystical spouse of Our  Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Holy Mother Church.

A correction has been made to the text of this commentary as I had misidentified the apostate who has been appointed to work in the Vatican Secret Archives. The presbyter's name is Jose Tolentino Mendonca, not Gilfredo Marengo. I am sorry for the mistake.

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.
