Compare and Contrast, 2014

Today is the Tenth Sunday after Pentecost and the Commemoration 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/Francis. 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 past seventeen months, to the preface of this vastly revised article that that provides a useful and handy resource for those who are new to this site and want to review past articles on Ratzinger and Bergoglio, I decided to incorporate a commentary on Bergoglio's address to the conciliar "bishops" of Korea into the text below. Also found in the text are links to the hard copy version of Conversion in Reverse: How the Ethos of Americanism Converted Catholics, which was been published in its corrected form on Kindle as well.

Work continues on other projects that occupy most of my time these days. Responses to e-mails will be very slow, perhaps up to four or five days, as a result of these projects, which will result, God willing and Our Lady interceding, in at least four or five new books over the course of time. Original articles on this site will continue to be scarce. However, an effort will be made to do at least one or two in the next seven to ten days.

Fatherly Affection, Eternal Orientation

For whatever reason, today's original article, "No Matter the Venue, Jorge's Always at Home Bashing Believing Catholics," is found below yesterday's republished reflection. In other words, it is two articles below this listing. Today's new article is very brief, perhaps two pages in length.
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. He 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 ago, 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. Saints Joachim and Anne, pray for us!

Taking Her Rightful Place

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. 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?

Work on the next original article to be posted on this site continues. It deals with Jorge's trip to the Republic of Korea, One can count on Jorge bashing believing Catholics no matter where he goes. He did so on Thursday when addressing the conciliar "bishops" of the Republic of Korea. However, the hour is very late. That article is just going to have to wait until later today or tomorrow.

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

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

No Matter the Venue, Jorge's Always at Home Bashing Believing Catholics

As available time is short, a very brief commentary on Jorge's address to the conciliar "bishops" of Korea is offered by way of reminding the readership of this site that the Argentine Apostate is always at home bashing believing Catholics no matter where in the world he is at any given moment. Jorge Mario Bergoglio is a man without regard for that which he dislikes, and that includes pretty much the entire patrimony of the Catholic Church.

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

Saint Joachim, pray for us.

Silence in the White House and at Casa Santa Marta

Chaldean Rite Catholics and Orthodox Christians are being slaughtered in Iraq and in Syria by the forces of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), killers who are being perfectly faithful to the text of the Koran. Jorge Mario Bergoglio, however, says that they are being unfaithful to the text of the blasphemous Koran. Jorge Mario Bergoglio is nothing other than an sloganeering ideologue. They are not. They are being entirely faithful to their false religion's insistence on killing. Jorge lives in a an imaginary world of "dialogue" where "peace" ends violence. The man is mad. So is each of the members of his supporting cast of characters.

Similarly, there is silence in the White House as Islamophile Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro emphasizes the killing of the Yazidis, a strange sect associated with the diabolical Zoroastrian religion, and equates this killing with the systematic displacement of slaughter of Christians, making just one limited statement on the matter in recent days as he ordered "limited" air strikes to stop the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. He is just as mad as is Bergoglio.

You see, both men are mass murderers.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio is a murderer of souls and of the truths contained in the Sacred Deposit of Faith.

Barack Hussein Obama is an enabler of the slaughter of millions of innocent preborn babies by chemical and surgical means here and around the world.

They have a lot in common, and they are both headed to the same end if they do not repent and convert to the Catholic Faith before they die.

Our Lady, Refuge of Sinners, pray for us.

Saints Hipoolytus and Cassian, pray for us.

Saint John Berchmanns, pray for us.

Without A Single Compromise

An article from five years ago honoring our great Wonderworker, Saint Philomena, has been revised for posting today, August 11, 2014, the Feast of Saints Tiburtius and Susanna and of the Wonderworker herself, who is not on the universal calendar of the Roman Rite but whose cultus was confirmed by none other than Pope Saint Pius X. That's good enough for me!

We are very devoted to Saint Philomena, pray the chaplet in her honor every Saturday evening after Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary. It was thus very touching for us to receive Mass propers for the Wonderworker'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 ferial day, in honor of our Wonderworker, 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 below.

Our Lady of the Universal Living Rosary Association, pray for us.

Saints Tiburtius and Susanna, pray for us.

Saint Philomena the Wonderworker, pray for us.

Scuttling Apostolicae Curae

What is this brief commentary about?

Same old, same old.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio insisted that his "convergence" "brother bishop," the late Tony Palmer of the "Communion of Episcopal Evangelical Churches," be buried as a "bishop" during a Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo "Mass of Christian Burial" even though the late Mr. Palmer was not a Catholic and he was not a bishop. Then again, it takes one to know one.

Our Lady, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Tiburtius and Susanna, pray for us.

Saint Philomena the Wonderworker, pray for us.

Poster Boy of Modernity

Today is the Feast of Saint John Mary Vianney and the Commemoration of the Vigil of Saint Lawrence the Deacon and the Commemoration of Saint Romanus. A brief republished reflection on the life and the work of Saint John Mary Vianney, can be found below.

Today is also the fortieth anniversary of the effective date of then President Richard Milhous Nixon's resignation, which he had announced the previous evening, August 8, 1974. An effort has been made to substantially rework an older article on the nation's thirty-seventh president who did much to institutionalize the “Great Society” of his wreteched, venal, corrupt and constitutionally abusive predecessor, Lyndon Baines Johnson, and to advance the anti-family agenda of the “population control: crowd. Anyone, no less a Catholic, who ignores Richard Nixon's record in support of abject evils is not doing the cause of truth any service at all. None whasoever.

Although there will be a brief commentary on the unanimous vote of the “cardinals” who serve on the conciliar Congregation for the Causes of the Saints to proceed with the “canonization” of Paulo Sicko (Giovanni Enrico Antonio Maria Montini/Paul the Sick), regular original articles on this site will be few and far between because of the responsibilities associated with other work. Please keep checking for republished articles and for what will be the relatively rare occasion that a new article is posted. As I have found a new power adapter for my camcorder, brief video commentaries will also be offered from time to time.

Thank you for your patience.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint John Mary Vianney, pray for us.

Saint Philomena, to whom Saint John Mary Vianney was so very devoted, pray for us.

Serving Souls to the Point of Death

Today is the feast of Saint John Mary Vianney. This great saint, the patron of diocesan priests, teaches us much about humility and perseverance.

Saint John Mary Vianney humbly recognized that he was not the brightest pupil, that he was, to use even his own description, slow in his studies. He had great difficulty learning his Latin. Other studies came hard to him as well. He did not give up. Helped by a wonderful mentor, Father Balley, who had worked as a carpenter during the French Revolution so as to hide his identify as a Catholic priest as he offered Mass in various hideaways and without any "communion" with the bishops and priests of the "constitutional church," John Mary Vianney persevered time and time and time again, praying to Saint John Francis Regis for help and guidance.

Yes, he was tempted to quit his studies, believing himself to unworthy of priestly ordination because of his lack of intellectual aptitude. Father Balley told him very pointedly, "You've decided to give in to the devil?" That knocked some sense into our Saint, and it should knock some sense into any young man today who might have experienced some difficulties and perhaps even gross injustices in their own pursuit of the priesthood. Never give up. We need priests, especially now in this time of apostasy and betrayal.

Always close to Our Lady, Saint John Mary Vianney was brought to the point of his priestly ordination on August 13, 1815. His superiors judged that his moral qualities had overcome any academic deficiencies that would have held others back from being ordained to the priesthood, and they were vindicated in their judgment by the long and devoted service that he gave to the people of Ars.

Oh yes, sure, he tried to run away from his people on three occasions, wanting to seek the solitude of a monastery. Each time, however, he responded to the pleas of his sheep who loved their shepherd, who spent so much time in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament and in the confessional to hear the confessions of the thousands of people who flocked from all over the world to the merits of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus applied to their souls through his priestly ministry, and returned home to Ars.

Saint John Mary Vianney, who knew failure in his studies for the priesthood, was a firm supporter of the "patron of failures," Pauline Jaricot, the foundress of Society of the Propagation of the Faith and the Universal Living Rosary Association, and zealously devoted to the cause of our great wonderworker, Saint Philomena. Saint John Mary Vianney spent himself tirelessly in behalf of the flock that was entrusted to his pastoral care. We need to invoke his intercession so that our own true bishops and priests will be fortified by his example as they seek to serve us, the scattering and wandering sheep of this time of apostasy and betrayal, unto eternity.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for is.

Saint John Mary Vianney, the Cure of Ars, pray for us.

Saint Romanus, pray for us.

Making An Atheistic, Murdering Dictator Into A Chosen Vessel of Our Lord

This article was posted at a very early hour this morning. It has been much expanded since its posting.

Suffice it to say that it is a follow-up to Monday's long article on Jorge Mario Bergoglio's "rehabilitation" of the unreconstructed Marxist, Father Miguel d'Escoto Brockman, a member of the Maryknoll theological, social, liturgical and moral revolutionaries. Father d'Escoto Brockman has celebrated his "rehabilitation" by calling the murderous tyrant named Fidel Castro, an atheist, the greatest Latin American of all time.

May God have mercy on us all!

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Cajetan, pray for us.

Saint Donatus, pray for us.
