Giving Aid and Comfort to Murderers, part one

Obama/Soetoro decides to restore full diplomatic relations with the Communist murderers of Cuba.

Guess who played an important role in effecting this "reconciliation"?

That's right, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, a murderer of souls.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

From Luther to Sanger to Ferguson

This is one of those "root causes" commentaries that is not for those who are looking for sound bites as the roots of what caused the rioting in Ferugson, Missouri, three weeks ago now can be traced back to Father Martin Luther, O.S.A., and from down to the days of Margaret Sanger, who sought to eliminate and then control the population of black Americans by means of "birth control." Revolutions against the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law wind up pitting men against each other after they have been enabled to make more war upon God than would otherwise have been the case by means of their fallen human nature.

It's back to Jorge tomorrow, Ember Wednesday, and that is a penance in and of itself.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, pray for us.

Saint Eusebius, pray for us.

Soldiers of the Damnation Army

The conciliar "popes" have been and continue to be soldiers in what can be called "The Damnation Army" just as much as the leaders of the other false religions over whom they have fawned so consistently.

No matter their different styles and areas of emphasis, the conciliar "popes," have been apologists in behalf of a false religion. Each false religion is from the adversary and leads only to eternal perdition.

This is a time of profound chastisement. We must keep ever close to Our Lady through her Most Holy Rosary.

A blessed Gaudete Sunday to you all!

An Immovable Foe of Religious Liberty (2014)

This revised article on Saint Lucy was published about an hour after Midnight before disappearing into cyberspace. The revisions had to be done all over again several hours later, thus delaying an original article that serves as a something of a companion commentary.

The saint whose feast we celebrate today, Saint Lucy, resisted all efforts made by the civil authorities to induce her to worship the idols when a suitor, who was angered by her rejection of him after she had given away her riches to the poor, betrayed her as Christian to the pagan officials of the Roman Empire in Syracuse, Sicily at the beginning of the Fourth Century A.D., in the year 304 A.D. Saint Lucy could have saved her life if only she worshiped the idols.

Unlike the conciliar "pontiffs," men who have esteemed the symbols of various and sundry false religions, with their own consecrated hands, Saint Lucy refused to do so and was immovable when taken to a house of sin. She refused even to look upon the vice that was before her. May this immovable foe of religious liberty help us to see more clearly with the eyes of our immortal souls that the Catholic Church cannot be in the least responsible for the abominations and blasphemies and sacrileges and defections from the Faith perpetrated by the counterfeit church of conciliarism. May Saint Lucy, a model of purity and gentleness and grace and courage, help us to see so clearly that we flee to the catacombs where the Faith is protected without any concessions to conciliarism.

A blessed Feast of Saint Lucy to all who are named after this great witness to the Faith, especially my dear wife, who took Saint Lucy as her patron at Baptism, and our dear daughter, Lucy Mary Therese Norma, who has, of course, a special devotion to the virgin and martyr from Syracuse, Sicily.

I ask your prayers also for the repose of the soul of the late Father Salvatore V. Franco, who died on this day twelve years ago now. Father Franco, who suffered from serious heart problems but died of a form of leukemia that he only found out he had weeks before he died, was good enough to offer Sharon and the newborn Lucy and me refuge in his kitchen in Westbury, Long Island, New York, in April of 2002 as he offered the Immemorial Mass of Tradition for us each weekday.

Although I had long before abandoned the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service on Sundays as I moved in "indult" circles, we made the decision to abandon all putative "offerings" of this abominable travesty during the week when Father Franco took ill before he died. Father Franco, who was ordained as a priest of the Diocese of Brooklyn in 1953, had a heart attack in 1963 at the age of thirty-seven, an act of God's Divine Mercy that kept him from being immersed in parish life as the conciliar revolution proceeded apace. Father Franco kept active, however, offering Mass and helping souls. We will be forever grateful to him for providing us with the refuge that he did after Lucy's birth. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen. We miss you, Father!

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Lucy, pray for us.

The Americas Belong to Our Lady

Two articles on Our Lady of Guadalupe are being republished today. Each has been slightly revised and, of course, reformatted for posting on this revamped version of In addition to this article, there is also "We Must Be Made As Simple and Trusting" that was published in four parts back in 2010.

Today is a great feast day in the Americas as it was on this day 483 years ago that Our Blessed Mother gave us two great miracles.

Acceding to the demand of Apostolic Administrator [later Archbishop] Fray Juan de Zumarraga, O.F.M., the Mother of God saw to it that Castilian roses grew atop Tepeyac Hill so that her little "Juanito," Juan Diego, a fifty-five year-old widower to whom she had first appeared on December 9, 1531, could provide proof that it was she who had made the request of Fray de Zumarraga to built a shrine in her honor on the hill where she appeared. The administrator's guards, who had treated Juan Diego with such cruelty and even racism, spied those roses and tried to grab them out of Juan's tilma as he waited to see Fray de Zumarraga. The roses, quite miraculously, disappeared every time the guards sought to snatch them away from Juan Diego.

Those Castilian roses were presented by Juan Diego to Fray Juan de Zumarraga, who knelt before the Indian convert to the Faith as he gazed upon the miraculous image that Juanito did not know was there: the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, who was clearly expecting the Baby Jesus. Remember, this was Advent in the year 1531, just forty-nine years after Christopher Columbus first set foot on the Island of San Salvador to implant the Cross of the Divine Redeemer in this hemisphere for the first time since Saint Brendan the Navigator had done so in the First Millennium.

Our Lady's miraculous image showing her expecting the Baby Jesus is quite symbolic of the expectant desire she had then--and has now--for the conversion of the peoples of the Americas to the true Faith, that each person and each nation be born anew as they submit themselves to Christ the King through His Catholic Church. Over nine million indigenous people converted to the true Faith within a short time following her apparition to Juan Diego on this day 483 years ago, almost person for person the number of people lost to the Faith as a result of the Protestant Revolt in Europe. It was almost as though God was saying to those who left, "Fine. I will have My Mother get new souls to populate Holy Mother Church and hence Heaven itself."

The Americas were indeed converted to Catholicism, which is why the devil had to attack the Faith in Latin America with such ferocity by means of the Masonic revolutionaries who were supported in both philosophical and monetary terms by the lodges in the nascent Untied States of America. Great crimes were committed against Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and His Most Blessed Mother as a result. These crimes continue to this day, which is, of course, one of the reasons that Saint Michael the Archangel appeared with Our Lady as she spoke to Juan Diego. Our Lady has crushed the head of the serpent with her heel and Saint Michael the Archangel is our helper to crush him in our own lives and in the Americas where he reigns, albeit temporarily, in civil government and in popular culture.

May we rely upon the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Empress and Patroness of the Americas, to help us to be courageous enough to plant seeds for the conversion of the Americas, including the United States of America, to the Social Reign of Christ the King as It must be exercised by the Catholic Church. Perhaps an extra Rosary today on this glorious feast day will help us to be more faithful and more courageous in our promotion of the Social Reign of Christ the King and Mary our Immaculate Queen.

Viva Cristo Rey!

Viva La Virgen de Guadalupe!

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us!

Finally, please pray for my younger brother (and only sibling), who turns sixty-one years of age today. Our late mother died on March 18, 1982, and our father died on September 5 1992. The years have certainly passed quickly.

Thank you for your prayers. An original article will appear tomorrow, the Feast of Saint Lucy.

May We Be Made As Simple and Trusting

There is a hideous shrine to the Masonic notion of "liberty" that stands in New York Harbor. It is, of course, called the Statue of Liberty, exalted even today by some traditionally-minded priests as a beacon of "hope" and a sign of the "greatness" of the United States of America as a land of liberty.

Nothing New Under Jorge's Sun

There is, however, nothing new under Jorge's sun.

I yawn.

This is a brief commentary on two segments of the false "pontiff's" interview (number umpteen million) with Elisabetta Pique for La Nacion, an Argentine newspaper.

Spotless Blessed Mother, Spotless Holy Mother Church

"I AM THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION." Those words, uttered by the Mother of God herself to Saint Bernadette Soubirous in the Grotto of Massabielle near Lourdes, France, on March 25, 1858, was a Heavenly ratification of the solemn, infallible proclamation of the doctrine of her Immaculate Conception by Pope Pius IX on December 8, 1854, in the Bull Ineffabilis Deus. "I AM THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION."

Our Lady was conceived in the womb of her holy mother, Good Saint Anne, without any stain of Original or Actual Sin in anticipation of the merits that would be won by her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, on the wood of the Holy Cross. She, the Singular Vessel of Devotion, had the perfect integrity of Adam and Eve before their Fall from Grace in the Garden of Eden. It is important, therefore, to get the doctrine of Original Sin right in order to understand the great miracle worked by God in the soul of the fairest flower of our race, Our Lady, from the very first moment of her Immaculate Conception. To get anything about the doctrine of Original Sin wrong leads to the efforts on the part of Modernists to deconstruct the doctrinal definitions of Original Sin and of the Immaculate Conception.

Alas, the Catholic Church, our Holy Mother on earth, our Mater and Magister, is as spotless as the Immaculate Blessed Virgin Mary. Holy Mother Church does not deconstruct infallible dogmatic definitions. Holy Mother Church cannot do so, which is why we need to pray to Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces and our Immaculate Queen, to help us to cleave to true bishops and true priests in the catacombs who make no concessions to the counterfeit church of conciliarism that has promulgated an abominable "liturgy" and whose officials feel feel to "reinterpret" dogmatic truths according to Modernist propositions that have been condemned by the authority of our spotless Mother on earth, Holy Mother Church.

Mindful of the effects of our own sins on our immortal souls and of our need to make reparation for them to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through Our Lady's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, may we make the Secret prayer for today's Holy Mass our own: "Receive the saving Victim we offer to Thee, O Lord, on the solemn feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary: and grant that, as we confess that by Thy prevenient grace she was kept free from every stain of sin; so, by her intercession, we may be delivered from all our offenses. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God."

A blessed Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary to you all!

Although this revised reflection does make more than casual references to the conciliar revolutionaries, I am not addressing Jorge Mario Bergoglio's interview in La Nacion, an Argentine newspaper, today as our focus must be on the fairest flower of our race who was unspotted by any stain of sin. Like his predecessors before him in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, Bergoglio has no conception of the horror of personal sin and, believing as the naturalist that he is, thinks that it is actually counterproductive to urge those living in states of Mortal Sin in the objective order of things to change as they might be offended and walk away from what he thinks is the Catholic Church. No one who loves God as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively through His true Church, the Catholic Church, can be indifferent to the horror of sin, which caused Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to suffer unspeakable horrors in His Sacred Humanity during His Passion and death on the wood of the Holy Cross and caused the Swords of Sorrow to be thrust through and though the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of His Most Blessed Mother, she is is our Immaculate Queen of Heaven and of Earth.

May God have mercy on us all in this era of apostasy and betrayal.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

Caesar's Latest Power Grab, part two

Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro’s latest power grab has his false opposites in the organized crime family of naturalism of the “right” as flummoxed now as they have been throughout the course of the past nearly six years since the committed Eurocialist was sworn in as President of the United States of America on January 20, 2009.

Without Regard for Results

As the three consecutive long nights of writing and overnight postings did not do wonders for the flu from which I have been suffering for the past week, my desire to complete "Caesar's Latest Power Grab" must yield to the necessity of rest. I have no idea how many people have read the three part series on Bergoglio's trip to Turkey. However, I do ask those who continue to read the articles on this site to be patient as I attempt to get better from the current illness, which, of course, I accept as a just chastisement for my sins and offer up with gratitude to the Throne of the Most Blessed Trinity through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Today's republished article is a brief reflection on the life and missionary work of Saint Francis Xavier, S.J., a true Jesuit and a true priest who encouraged his converts in Goa, India, to mock and to smash the images of idols. Such "disrespect" to the images of idols would not be tolerated by the lay Jesuit, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who has never found a false religion that he could not praise and respect.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us,

Saint Francis Xavier, pray for us.
