Revised and Expanded: Naturally Absurd, part two

[For some unknown reason, this commentary has been "unpublished" TEN different times! I did not "unpublish" it. Very strange. Anyhow, this commentary has undergone substantial editing and revision since its original posting on Sunday, August 16, 2020, the Feast of Saint Joachim and the Commemorations of the Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost and of Saint Roch.]

The organized crime family of the false opposite of the naturalist “left” will be meeting this week. They will nominate two-liked minded statist pro-aborts, pro-perverts for president and vice president, and they will adopt a radical platform.

So, what else is new?

This is what the organized crime family of the naturalist “left” has been doing since 1972, although, despite the George McGovern radicalized party platform, each of his two vice presidential running mates, United States Senator Thomas Eagleton (D-Missouri) and Robert Sargent Shriver (first director of the Peace Corps under his brother-in-law John Fitzgerald Kennedy) opposed abortion. Since then, it has been one radicalized platform after another.

So, it is only logical that this year’s will be worse the past.

Thus, I have no intention of subjecting myself to any of the agitation that this coming week will engender. While I may have something to write about it once the acceptance speeches are given by the fascists/Jacobins-in waiting, I am not going to waste my good Catholic time on the nightly events as I have in past years.

What is the point?

Indeed, some longtime readers might ask me what is the point of this long commentary that I am posting right now to remind them that false premises always lead to evil consequences. Always. Inevitably. Inexorably.

Why did I make this effort yet again?

Well, because I wanted to do so in the hope, perhaps furtive, that some people who are agitated about the current state of affairs that is occurring within the Providence of God to try, perhaps for the first time, to see the world through the eyes of the true Faith and to realize that our situation today did not occur overnight and will not disappear even if President Donald John Trump is reelected in November—or whenever it is the fraudulent vote count will be announced thereafter.

This is a long article that needs to be read carefully. One cannot simply skim this article. One must read it and take the time necessary to reflect on it in a spirit of peace and a spirit of dispassionate detachment from one’s presuppositions.

Our hope is Our Lady’s Most Holy Rosary and total consecration to her Divine Son through her own Immaculate Heart, not politics.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.

Saint Joachim, pray for us.

Saint Joachim: God's Faithful Servant and Father of Our Lady

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.

Part two of "Naturally Absurd" will be published within a short time after this posting.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Joachim and Anne, pray for us!

Saint Roch, pray for us.

Taking Her Rightful Place in Heaven

[Update: I have another full day of work on "Naturally Absurd, part two" before I can publish it. Today looks to be the day of its completion if I do not have the sort of unexpected interruptions that occurred yesterday.]

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?

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

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

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

This is a republished reflection on the life of Saint Clare of Assisi that was published originally in 2016. 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.

Although this reflection is included in To Live in Light of Eternity, the virtues of Saint Clare of Assisi deserve wide circulation for as long as our civil minders permit this website to exist. 

Another republished article, , was featured yesterday in addition to the reflection on our Wonder Worker, Saint Philomena.

Finally,  I should have time today to complete a brief original article after I finish the editing work on Volume 5 of To Live in Light of Eternity and continue the process of formatting the anthology on matters of physical life and death for publication later this week. Time is short, which means that good use must be made of it before our Particular Judgment.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Clare of Assisi, pray for us.

Saint Francis of Assisi, pray for us.

Blessed Agnes of Prague, pray for us.

A Very Timely Reprise: Mazie Hirono and Kamala Harris: Epic Haters of Catholicism

All right, all right. I was wrong about the decrepit pro-abortion, pro-perversity "Catholic," Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., choosing Michele Robinson Obama to be his vice presidential running mate. To call to mind the phrase that the scriptwriter put into the mouth of the fictional Chief Robert T. Ironside after a rogue cop who had promised to surrender pulled a gun on him and said that he was surprised Ironside fell for the ploy, the Chief said, "Nobody bats a thousand." Well, I can't even seem to bat .191 a lot of the time. Yes, nobody bats a thousand.

It was while proofreading the forthcoming anthology on matters of physical life and death in a world where mere mortals play God with the lives of children in their mothers' womb and make "end of life" decisions on myths that are designed to vivisect human beings for their vital bodily organs while mistreating others on the basis of "quality of life" judgments that a noticed a news flash on my cellular phone that informed this poor prognasticator that Biden had chosen United States Senator Kamala Harris (D-People's Republic of California) to be his vice presidential running mate.

Kamala Harris is an epic hater of Catholicism, which is why I am dusting off a commentary from twenty months ago so that readers can see that, yes, I will always admit my mistakes, and, more importantly, to learn a bit more about this egregious selectee, who would likely be the de facto president during much, if not all, of a "President" Biden's term. 

Kyrie eleison.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Philomena, pray for us.

Saints Tiburtius and Susanna, pray for us.

 

Saint Philomena: Our Ever-Reliable Wonder Worker, 2020

This is a brief reflection, written originally in 2009 and revised over the years, to honor our great Wonder Worker, Saint Philomena and also the commemoration of 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--.)

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. 

Finally,  I am finishing up the editing and proofreading work on my next book, which is anthology of commentaries dealing with "brain death"/human vivisection, the starvation and dehydration of innocent human beings, contraception, abortion, and "natural family planning," but will try to find time to day to write a commentary about the "looting as reparations" insanity that took place in Chicago, Illinois, a few days ago. 

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.

Saints Tiburtius and Susanna, pray for us.

On the Feast of Saint Lawrence the Martyr

This is a woefully inadequate reflection on Saint Lawrence the Martyr that does not even begin to do justice to his virtues, heroism and humor, especially as he was being roasted alive. However, as I am working on the next book project, this is all that I can provide you with today. 

The next original article on this site should appear by the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Saturday, August 15, 2020, although there is a slight chance it might appear on the Vigil of the Assumption.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Lawrence the Martyr, pray for us.

On the Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Lord Jesus Christ

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. 

Work has commenced on the next original article to be posted on this site.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Peter, pray for us.

Saint John the Evangelist, pray for us.

Saint James the Greater, pray for us.

Pope Saint Sixtus, Saints Felicissimus and Agapitus, pray for us.

Remember, Volume 4 of To Live in Light of Eternity has been published.

Finally, I am busy on two different book projects as well as trying to promote The Battle Over the Oyster Bay-Rye Bridge: Defeating Nelson Rockefeller and Preserving Long Island Sound. The next original article on this site should appear in one week. Thank you.

 

The Most Prolific Desecrators the World Has Ever Known

The conciliar revolutionaries are the most prolific desecrators that the world has ever known, and we will only learn in eternity just how extensive the damage these wicked men have done to souls after having wrecked the Faith and invalid liturgical rites that have brought the wrath of our merciful but ever just Judge, Christ the King, down on us all.

The next original article on this site may not appear for another six or seven days as I must attend to another book project first. The next commentary will the long-delayed “Naturally Absurd,” part two.

Prior to this article’s completion, however, and realizing full well that I stand to be wrong yet again, it is my belief that the ever-demagogic Joseph Robinette Biden’s “search” for a vice presidential running mate is a smokescreen that permits him some time before he announce his selection: Michelle Robinson Obama. Then again, what do I know?

Finally, here is a link to my reflection about Saint Dominic de Guzman, Saint Dominic de Guzman: Favored by Our Lady with Her Most Holy Rosary, and I remind the readers of this site that Volume 4 of To Live in the Light of Eternity is for sale.  

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Dominic de Guzman, O.P., pray for us.

On the Feast of Saint Peter's Chains and the Commemoration of the Holy Machabees

While work progresses on the next original article and is likely to be concluded late this evening, I am presenting a short reflection on the Feast of Saint Peter's Chains and the Commemoration of the Holy Machabees.

It is not for nothing that Angelo Roncalli/John XXIII suppressed the Feast of Saint Peter's Chains sixty years ago as, whether he knew it or not, a way for the adverstary to hide the events recounted in the Lesson read at Holy Mass today and thus not come to the realization that Roncalli himself had taken the papacy in chains so that the work of the new religion and its new church could commence.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Peter, pray for us.

Saint Paul, pray for us.

The Holy Machabees, pray for us.
