Saint Vincent Ferrer, O.P.: A Fearless Seeker of Lost Souls

This article, which was written in 2011 and revised over the years, contrasts the zeal of Saint Vincent Ferrer for the conversion of Jews and Mohammedans with his antitheses in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, who do not believe that they have a mission from God to seek with urgency the conversion of the souls of any non-Catholics, including adherents of the Talmud and the Koran.

Although I would not have thought it possible six years ago when this article was written originally, Jorge Mario Bergoglio is even more of antithesis of Saint Vincent Ferrer than was Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI before him, not that the German Modernist by the way of the “new theology” was any slouch in this regard. It’s just that the Argentine Apostate has exceeded everything that has gone before him in the past fifty-eight years, and he’s still at his work of destruction.

Today, Friday, April 5, 2019, is the sixth anniversary of the death of Mrs. Melissa Kunkel, the late first wife of Mr. Thomas Kunkel of Sharonville, Ohio, and the mother of twelve loving children to whom she was so very devoted. Please join us in remembering the repose of this devout Catholic woman’s immortal soul. 

Prayers are also requested for the soul of Mrs. Leslie Matatics, who died on Sunday, March 24, 2019, in Scranton, Pennsylvania. A mother of ten children, Mrs. Matatics, the wife of Mr. Gerald Christian, was fifty-five years of age and died after a year-long struggle with cancer. Please pray for her immortal soul and for the needs of Mr. Matatics and his family at this time.

Finally, yesterday, Thursday, April 4, 2019, the Feast of Saint Isidore of Seville and the Commemoration of Thursday in the Fourth Week of Lent, was the second anniversary of the death of my former colleage and friend, Mr. John Vennari. Please remember his immortal soul and for the needs of the Vennari family.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and all of the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

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

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Vincent Ferrer, O. P., pray for us.

Antipapal Appointees Always Advance Antichrist's Anti-Catholic Agenda

Although I am aware that Jorge Mario Bergoglio has been in Morocco, where he reaffirmed his apostate statement on “human solidarity” that was the subject of Jorge Signs Off on the One World Ecumenical Religion two months ago, my attention in the past week has been focused on writing this new commentary, which deals with the conciliar Vatican’s position on vaccines derived from the cell lines of butchered babies.

This is a detailed article, one that is relatively short by the standards of this website as it runs less than twenty pages. However, there is a lot of important information contained in the text, including links to various articles as well as to a video presentation by Dr. Suzanne Humphries about the fraudulent nature of the claims made by governments and the medical industry about the “success” of vaccines.

You see, the conciliar Vatican assures us that vaccines are important to public health. As I state in this new commentary, vaccines have nothing to do with public health. They have everything to do with money and control as human beings are used as guinea pigs of experimentation.

The Mueller Report?

I’ll get around to that in due course.

For the moment, though, this commentary should keep you busy for a few days.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Philomena, pray for us.

Reflections on the Royal Road to Victory: The Via Crucis (2019)

Several matters have interfered with the completion of my next commentary, which is not about the Mueller Report as summarized by United States Attorney General William Barr. That article is being written. However, there is a subject concerning the counterfeit church of conciliarism that I want to cover first. There is just enough work to be done on it to make it unlikely for posting until tomorrow, Monday, April 1, 2019, Monday in the Fourth Week of Lent.

The current posting contains a few reflections for your consideration on the Way of the Cross that might be useful for the reamining three weeks of Lent. These reflections were written many a moon ago and have been revised slightly over the past three decades. 

A blessed Laetare Sunday to you all.

Thank you.

Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.

Images to Last for All Eternity: On the Feast of Saint John Damascene

The great saint whose feast we celebrate today, Saint John Damascene, fought the iconoclasts in his day. And while many, although far from all, of our Catholic churches are now in the hands of the conciliar iconoclasts, we can festoon our homes with images of Our Lord and Our Lady and Saint Joseph and other saints as we use these images to remind us of we are united to the saints represented in these images by means of the Communion of Saints and that we hope to share Heaven with them for all eternity in the glory of the Beatific Vision. 

Today is, of course, our daughter Lucy’s seventeenth birthday and the elevenanniversary of her First Holy Communion. 

We are very blessed to have our dear daughter, who is being taught by a mother possessed of a pure love of the Holy Catholic Faith and a deep, tender devotion to the Mother of God. I give thanks every day and night for the blessings represented by my family. Deo gratias! Please do pray for Lucy Mary Therese Norma Droleskey on her birthday today. Thank you. 

The next original article is in the works. I hope to have it posted by tomorrow, the Feast of Saint John of Capistrano. 

Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us. 

Saint John Damascene, pray for us.

Not With My Money (Not That I Have Any)

As always seems to be the case these days, it took longer to complete work on this commentary than I had estimated, and for this I apologize.

Although I do not have television, I read news stories on a selective basis every day. A recent series of stories dealt with supposed “celebrities,” absolutely none of whom I had ever heard in my life as I do not follower contemporary “culture” or “entertainment” in the slightest, having paid exorbitant fees to a man to get their children into prestigious universities on scholarships of one sort or another. While this matter is not the subject of the current commentary, it did prompt me to use my upcoming fiftieth anniversary reunion of my high school graduating class as a springboard write about the true purposes of education as elucidated by the teaching of Holy Mother Church.

This is a relatively short article, running about thirty pages on the Word document on which it was prepared.

My commentary about the findings of Robert Mueller’s “investigation” as summarized by United States Attorney General William Barr will follow by the end of this week.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

On the Feast of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary (2019)

Today's article is a slightly revised reflection on the feast we celebrate today, the feast which signifies the moment when the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, the very Word through Whom all things were made, personally entered into human history as He was made Incarnate in the Virginal and Immaculate Womb of His Most Blessed Mother by the power of the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, Who overshadowed Our Lady after she had given her perfect Fiat to the Will of the First Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Father, as that Will was made known to her by Saint Gabriel the Archangel.

The whole of human history is changed today--and no one can remain neutral about what happened on this day. If the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity really did become Man this day in Our Lady's Virginal and Immaculate Womb so as to redeem us on the wood of the Holy Cross thirty-three years later, as we know is indeed the case, then every person and every nation on the face of this earth must acknowledge this fact and subordinate everything to the Deposit of Faith that He has entrusted exclusively to His Catholic Church for Its eternal safekeeping and infallible explication.

We must pray to Our Lady every day so that we will never lose sight of the centrality of the Incarnation in our own lives and in the lives of our nations, never lose sight of the fact that Holy Mass itself is Incarnational as the Word Who was made Incarnate in her Virginal and Immaculate Womb is made Incarnate on altars of sacrifice under the appearances of bread and wine by true bishops and true priests. Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ spent nine months in the tabernacle of Our Lady's Virginal and Immaculate Womb, thereby sanctifying the wombs of al mothers. He is in solidarity with every child in every mother's womb. Every abortion, whether by chemical or surgical means, is an indirect attack on the Incarnation that took place this very day.

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

By the way, I spent all day Saturday and most of Sunday working on the next original article for this site. Work on it, though, was ceased about ten minutes after Midnight this morning as it is not possible to stay up for the two hours or so that it will take the remaining work I have to do on it. It is my hope to have the article up by late this afteroon on this feast day. An article incorporating Attorney General William Barr's executive summary of the report submitted to him by "special counsel" Robert Mueller on Friday, March 22, 2019, the Feast of Saint Isidore the Farmer and the Commemoration of Friday in the Second Week of Lent, will appear later this week. I move methodically these days, surely not as fast as was the case in the past.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Benedict of Nursia: Adamant Foe of Paganism, Idolatry and Heresy

[Saturday, March 23, 2019, Update: A prayer request for Father Joseph Collins:

[Although I may not have my next original article ready for posting until the Feast of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Monday, March 25, 2019, and will not have any commentary about whatever United States Attorney General William Barr chooses to release about the report that “special counsel” Robert Mueller has submitted to him for several days after that, I did want to take a few moments to ask the readers of this site for prayers for a very fine and prayerful priest, Father Joseph Collins, who is reported to be gravely ill at this time.

[Father Collins was one of “The Nine” who wrote a Letter to Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre almost exactly at this time thirty-six years ago now. We met him in late-September of 2003 after Holy Mass at Saint Michael the Archangel Chapel in Glenmont, New York, and he was very pleasant and cordial to us even though we had not come as of then to accept the true state of the Church Militant in this time of apostasy and betrayal. He could not have been kinder to us.

Indeed, he drove down the one hundred eighty miles or so from Glenmont to Jericho, New York, the next afternoon to attend a talk I gave about false ecumenism at the Milleridge Inn restaurant, and it was eight months thereafter that we assisted at a Requiem Mass that he offered in Lakeville, Connecticut, for the late and truly imitable William C. Koneazny (see A True Catholic Rendezvous: A Personal Reminiscence of the late +William C. Koneany, R.I.P. ). Father Collins was very instrumental in helping me to see and to accept the true state of the Church Militant at this time.

We have not crossed paths with Father Collins, who loved talking about the 1969 New York Mets with me, since he offered Holy Mass for us in November of 2009 as we were returning to the Midwest after a visit to Connecticut, Rhode Island and Long Island. However, he hass remained in our prayers daily. Please join us in praying for Father Collins, who has received the Sacrament of Extreme Unction, during this time of his critical illness.  

Our Lady, Health of the Sick, pray for us.

Saint Luke the Physician, pray for us.


Saints Cosmas and Damian, pray for us.

his reflection contrasts the work of Saint Benedict of Nursia, whose feast is today, which is also the fifty-eighth anniversary of my Confirmation at the hands of Bishop Walter P. Kellenberg, the founding Bishop of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, New York, at Saint Aloysius Church, Great Neck, New York, with that of the two most recent conciliar “popes.”

Much time has been spent to give attention to Bergoglio’s denial of the commission that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ gave to the Eleven on Ascension Thursday to convert all men to the true Faith. Saint Benedict of Nursia, the father of western Monasticism and thus of Europe itself, had an intolerance for such teaching. So should we. 

Finally, a new article was posted last evening: .

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. 
Saint Benedict of Nursia, pray for us.

Fake Popes Make Fake Promises

This is a very short commentary that I had not anticipated preparing prior to reading a news story about the refusal of the fake pope, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, to accept the resignation of the fake archbishop of Lyon, France, Philippe Barbarin following the latter’s conviction for covering-up clerical abuse in his archdiocese. What was that the Argentine Apostate said on Sexagesima Sunday about promising to punish enablers of clerical abusers?

Well, fake popes make fake promises because they belong to a false religion and propagate fake doctrines and stage fraudulent liturgical services that are abominable in the sight of the true God of Divine Revelation, the Most Blessed Trinity.

Nothing changes in the conciliar structures.

It was precisely nine years ago that Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI made the same kind of promises as his successor did twenty-four days ago now as he apologized for and promised to take action again clerical abuse in Ireland. Six “bishops” offered their resignations, but Ratzinger/Benedict rejected two of them and one did not resign until 2011 for “health reasons.” Other than that, of course, nothing.

Fake popes make fake promises.

What else is new?

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Benedict of Nursia, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, the Just and Quiet Man of the House of David

Today, of course, is the great Feast of Saint Joseph, the Chaste Spouse of Our Lady, the just and silent man of the House of David. Saint Joseph denied himself his biological fatherhood in order to serve as the ever-virginal spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the most loving foster-father to Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

In him, Saint Joseph, is to be found every virtue for a husband and father to imitate: patience, charity, forbearance in all difficulties, fortitude, perseverance, temperance, and total self-abnegation. Those of us who are husbands and fathers must learn to be more silent, to learn to be more loving, to learn to be more patient, to learn to be more meek, to learn to be ever-ready to worker harder and harder at our life's work so as to help our wives and our children to live as redeemed creatures here below in order to know eternal happiness hereafter in Heaven. Saint Joseph is the model of home life and the patron of artisans, the protector of widows and orphans, the patron of those who are in danger of death. May we invoke his patronage each day after we invoke that of his Most Chaste Spouse, Our Lady, and never be slow to turn to him in our spiritual and temporal needs:

"O Saint Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in thee all my interests and desires. O thou Saint Joseph, do assist me by thy powerful intercession, and obtain for me from thy divine Son all spiritual blessings, through Jesus Christ, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ; so that, having engaged here below thy heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of fathers. O Saint Joseph, I never weary contemplating thee, and Jesus asleep in thy arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near thy heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His fine head for me, and ask Him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath. Saint Joseph, Patron of departing souls, pray for me. Amen!"

An original article, , was posted in the early evening hours last night, although it turned out to be a truncated posting that required me to import a substantial amount of missing text and then to upload the commentary again. This was an uploading problem caused by spotty internet coverage. I apologize for the confusion. However, I only found out about the problem before completing work on this revised and expanded reflection on our dear Saint Joseph.

A blessed Feast of Saint Joseph to you all! 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, pray for us.

Yet Another Pretext for the Monsters of Modernity to Tighten Their Grip on Us All

[A very truncated version of this commentary was published early last evening. It appears that full text did not upload successfully, which required me to go back to the Word document on which the commentary was prepared to important the missing text. I am sorry for the confusion.]

Although I am very much aware that much of is presented as “news” is not that at all, the commentary that I have prepared about the tragic events in New Zealand is premised upon the realization that we live in a world of nihilistic monsters, meaning that men such as Brenton Harrison Tarrant are to be found everywhere.

Ah, but those who plan and execute schemes of mass murder are relatively few in number when compared to the systematic slaughter of the innocent preborn and everyone else after birth who are deemed to be “unfit” to live and are thus dispatched by means of vivisection under the aegis of the medical industry’s profit-making myth called “brain death,” “palliative care,” “assisted suicide” and the dehydration and starvation to death of innocent human beings who are suffering from brain trauma or are in a comatose state. These murderers make lots of money, and they do so under the cover of the civil law and with the full approval of the masses.

May God have mercy on us all.

Today, March 18, 2019, is the thirty-ninth anniversary of the death of my mother, +Mrs. Norma Florence Red Fox Droleskey, who was the adoptive daughter of Chief Red Fox, at the then named Spohn Hospital in Corpus Christi, Texas, where she had spent her adolescent years until she joined the Women’s Army Corps in 1943 at the age of twenty-two, at the age of sixty-one years, twelve days. My mother died of stomach and esophageal cancer that had been diagnosed on Friday, January 29, 1982, just six weeks before she died. Most of that time was spent at the M. D. Anderson Cancer Hospital in Houston, Texas. It is hard to believe that I am now over five years older than she was at the time of her death. How the time has flown. Prayers for the repose of her immortal soul would be very much appreciated. Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul and all of the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Today is also the twelfth anniversary of the death of the late +Father Daniel Johnson, who was ordained to the Holy Priesthood in 1954 and served as the pastor of Saint Mary by the Sea Church in Huntington Beach, California, form 1979 to 2004. Father Johnson was very zealous for souls. He personally walked the boundaries of the parish three times during his quarter-century pastorate, visiting (or leaving his card with an invitation to join the Catholic Church if no one was present to answer his knock) every residence and business to encourage fallen away Catholics to the return to the Faith and to invite non-Catholics to convert. Father Johnson brought five hundred fifty-four souls into the Faith, including Mohammedans, Jews, and Mormons. Sharon herself was baptized at the hands of Father Johnson on July 31, 1999, nearly twenty months before I met her on March 11, 2001 at Saint Mary by the Sea Church as I was giving the “Living in the Shadow of the Cross” lecture program. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and all of the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

It was also on this date in 2008 that Mrs. Theresa Colgan, the mother of a former student of mine from Saint Francis College in Brooklyn, New York, during the 1985-1986 academic year, died. Please pray for her immortal soul as well. Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul and all of the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen,

There are also several birthday intentions that have been remembered in our own prayers today.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, pray for us.

Saint Cyril of Jerusalem, pray for us.
