Saint Benedict of Nursia: Foe of The False Idols Adored by the Conciliar "Popes"

This is a substantially revised reflection that contrasts the work of Saint Benedict of Nursia, whose feast is today, which is also the fifty-sixth 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. 

My long commentary about Bergoglio's address on "palliative" was completed about twenty minutes before this posting. It has been sent out for vetting. Thank you for your patience.

Finally, the omniscient overlords at Google locked me out of my e-mail account after I had forgotten my password last week even though I had entered all the right information to establish my identity. I apologize to correspondents. I received access only late last night. Thank you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, 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!"

I was making superb progress on completing my long-delayed commentary about Bergoglio's address on "palliative care" four months ago until late last night when I did something that I rarely do any longer because I lack the time. However, I did find the following address by Mr. Andrew Emmans that was linked on the Novus Ordo Watch Wire website: From Protestant Pastor to Sedevacantist that I highly recommend. The talk is both humorous and riveting. Please do send a link to your relatives and friends and priests/presbyters who are as of yet convinced that the counterfeit church of conciliarism is the Catholic Church and that Jorge Mario Bergoglio is "Pope Francis," remembering to pray as well for Mr. Emmans and his family. (Work on my commentary will resume later today.)

Speaking of links, Vanquished by Our Lady: Comrade Bergoglio, will take you to my latest book, which the same relatives and friends and priests/presbyters might find of interest.

A blessed Feast of Saint Joseph to you all!  (A commemoration of the Mass of Monday in Passionweek this made at Holy Mass today.)

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, pray for us.

Passiontide Reflections

[Although it took almost an entire day after I received notification that my new book, Vanquished by Our Lady: Comrade Bergoglio, to show up on Amazon, it is now available. It is my goal to produced thematic anthologies chronicling the Argentine Apostate's first five years as the univesal public face of apostasy.

The current volume focuses on Jorge's "preferential option," shall we say, for leftism and leftists of all stripes, including Communist thugs and murderers themselves. The next volume will focus a new church for a new religion.

[Please purchase a copy of the new book now, and feel free to buy some for your relatives, friends and acquaintances who may as yet be attached to the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism.]

One of the recurring themes in my writing is the obligation each of us has as a Catholic to forgive others as we have been forgiven so freely and so readily by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ acting through an alter Christus in the Sacred Tribunal Penance. There is nothing that anyone can do to us, say about us or cause us to suffer, whether emotionally or physically, that is the equal of what one of our least Venial Sins caused the God-Man to suffer in His Sacred Humanity during His Passion and Death as the Fourth through Seven Swords of Sorrow pierced the Immaculate Heart of His Most Blessed Mother. If He forgives us recidivist sinners, steeped in the spiritual mediocrity of lukewarmness, so readily and so frequently, who are we to hesitate for a moment to forgive others anything and everything, whether real or imagined or exaggerated, that they have have said about us or done to us?

Our Lord entered His Passion so as to redeem us and thus to make it possible for us to know His forgiveness, first in the Baptismal font and then in the Sacred Tribunal of Penance (and, for our Venial Sins, every time a priest administers Absolution following the recitation of the Confiteor in the offering of Holy Mass). We must make good use of this Passiontide to be more forgiving as we seek out the mercy of the Divine Redeemer through the ministrations of a true priest acting in persona Christi in the confesional.

As a sinner who has been forgiven much in the Sacred Tribunal of Penance, I have no energy at all (Deo gratias!) for nursing petty grudges and stewing in my juices about the judgments of others. Our sins imposed an unjust judgment on God in the very Flesh. It is good for us to suffer humiliation and rejection and calumny and scorn and derision. Very good for us. The more we suffer with love and gratitude is the more that we can unite ourselves to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. And even if we are the victims of real injustices and calumnies, so what?

So what?

Everything gets revealed on the Last Day at the General Judgment of the Living and the Dead. Each of the just will be reconciled one to the other at that time. That happy reconciliation then can only take place, however, if we forgive others from our hearts in the here and now of this passing, mortal vale of tears!

Let’s make this the best Passiontide of our lives, grateful to Almighty God that He has brought us to the beginning of yet another Passiontide, uncertain though we may be as to we will live to see Easter Sunday in this passing, mortal vale of tears just thirteen days from now on Sunday, April 1, 2018.

Today, March 18, is also the the thirty-sixth anniversary of the death of of my late mother, Norma Florence Red Fox Droleskey, who died at 9:20 p.m., Central time at Spohn Hospital in Corpus Christi, Texas, on this date in 1982 of stomach and esophageal cancer, which had been diagnosed on January 29, 1982. I ask for your prayers for the repose of my late mother's immortal soul. Eternal rest grant unto Norma Droleskey, 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.

As God's Providence would have it, today is also the eleventh anniversary of the death of Father Daniel Johnson, who had such great zeal for souls, and the tenth anniversary of the death of Mrs. Theresa Colgan, the mother of my former student and good friend, Lieutenant Spencer Colgan. In the words of Father Johnson, "Don't think I'll be in Heaven immediately after my death. Pray for me!" Indeed, Father Johnson we are praying for you every day. We are also praying for Mrs. Colgan's immortal soul. I ask that you join us in our prayers for these two souls on this anniversary of their deaths.

By the way, my new book is published, whatever that means, but is not yet visible on Amazon. I will let you know when that changes. All to thee, Blessed Mother. All to thy Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you. Save souls!

Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, pray for us.

Republished: Saint Patrick: Apostle to the Emerald Isle

This is a slightly revised tribute to our glorious Saint Patrick, Bishop and Confessor, whose work in behalf of the conversion of the Irish clans from paganism stands in very sharp contrast to the obeisance that has been paid by the conciliar “popes” and their “bishops” to every false religion and pagan superstition imaginable. It was to wipe out paganism that Saint Patrick spent his life as a missionary to the Emerald Isle, that land of Saints and Scholars which has fallen back into paganism in no small measure because of the false doctrines and sacramental barrenness of the liturgical rites of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. Saint Patrick stands ready to convert each one of us away from our own sins if only we beg his intercession to help make us saints, especially now as we enter into Passiontide with first vespers this evenving.

We are privileged to have a relic of Saint Patrick that is venerated each night before sleep. This relic was given to us most unexpectedly by a reader some years ago now, perhaps as long as ten years ago. Please be assured that we will include the intentions of each one of our readers in mind as venerate this relic of Saint Patrick this evening.

I am still awaiting final approval of my new book. In the meantime, though, I did a lot of additional work yesterday on my review of Bergoglio's address about "palliative care" was delivered four months ago. It will sent out for vetting, however, before it can be published. Thank you.

A blessed Feast of Saint Patrick to you all! 

Our Lady of Knock, pray for us.

Saint Patrick, pray for us.

March 16, 2018, Update

This entire week has been spent editing and then atttemping to upload the content of an anthology of seven articles that document Jorge Mario Bergoglio's "preferential option," shall we say, for leftists and leftism of all stripes, something that has been a hallmark of his masquerade party as "Pope Francis" that is now five years old.   The text is being "reviewed" at this time. It is my hope that it will be available for purchase later today. 

Projects such as this one will be undertaken throughout the remainder of this year. However, I will still write original commentaries as time permits. Two such commenataries will be written over the weekend.

Thanks, as always, for your patience.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Pope Saint Gregory the Great Gave Advice to Shepherds and to Us All

Today, Monday, March 12, 2018, is the Feast of Pope Saint Gregory the Great. A slightly revised version of a reflection on Pope Saint Gregory the Great that was written in 2010 is offered to the readership today in a slightly revised form. May we pray to the illustrious Pope Saint Gregory the Great for the restoration of a true pope on the Throne of Saint Peter.

Tomorrow is the fifth anniversary of the election of the sixth in the current line of antipopes. It is my hope to have a project to commemorate this tragic anniversary ready by tomorrow. Realistically, however, it may not appear for a day or two more.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

How Many More Times? How Many More Times?

The not-so-original conciiliar "archbishop" of Chicago, Blase Cupich, "apologized" recently for the efforts of Catholics to convert Jews. I mean, when was the last time you heard of anyone in the counterfeit church of conciliarism seeking to convert Jews. Talk about a straw man argument.

Come on, the hour is late, later still as we lose an hour tomorrow morning when the insanity known as "Daylight Saving Time" begins. Anyone who cannot see that none of this can come from the Catholic Church at this late date will never see it. These revolutionaries are screaming at us: "We are apostates, and you don't care because we have taught you to accept or to be silent about our apostasy."

A few indentations that were not made in this article's original posting have been made.

Saint John of God: Living a Life to be Understood by God Alone

This article in honor of Saint John of God, whose feast is celebrated today, was written seven years ago now. A lot of hard work went into its completion. I believe it to be one a piece that will give great consolation to those who have not as of yet read it.

Saint John of God was little understood during his life. It was the case that even his longtime spiritual director, Saint John of Avila, who knew him fairly well, did not understand his decisions. Saint John of God suffered from all manner of slanders and even beatings in his life. He suffered slanders even up to the point of his own death. It was enough for him to be understood by God. It should be enough for us as well, especially during this time of apostasy and betrayal when so many of us are misunderstood and castigated by relatives and friends and acquaintances as being "outside of the Church" for our refusal to make any concessions to conciliarism or its false shepherds. We should be grateful that we are as misunderstood and hated and calumniated as was Saint John of God!

Thanks be to an e-mail send by a friend, the impending "canonization" of "Archbishop" Oscar Romero has not gone unnoticed. This means a slight interruption of the completing of an already much-delayed commentary. However, this news does fit very nicely with the "other project" that I mentioned in my last posting. This project, which will be he first of several such projects in the next few month, should be completed by Laetare Sunday, if not sooner. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Thomas Aquinas: The Angelic Doctor and Pillar and Champion of the Catholic Faith

This is a wholly inadequate reflection on the life and the work of Saint Thomas Aquinas.

This refection contains the late Father Peter Gallwey's description of selective Scripture citation and individual interpretation that applies perfectly to the conciliar revolutionaries, including Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

Yes, work on the next article continues, albeit simultaneously with another project. This feast day, though, will be spent driving some distance to a chiropractor who uses laser treatments that might help the foraminal stenosis, Penance! Every day of the year is a good time for penance, but this is especially the case in Lent! Deo gratias! 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

A World Filled with Guilty Consciences

We live in a world filled with guilty consciences, which will never rest until everyone becomes an accessory, whether actively or being coerced silence, in sins that cry to Heaven for vengeance and that bring down ruin on men and their nations.

There will be a gap of a few days as I finalize my article on Bergoglio’s address on “palliative care” four months ago. I am trying work within the limitations of serious spinal problems, including foraminal stenosis and overall degeneration in addition to the fractured disc incurred on July 18, 2017. Thank you for your patience.
