Today is the Feast of the great Saint John Bosco, to whom we are very devoted. This is a revised reflection on an extraordinary priest who had a zeal for the salvation of souls in his youth, a zeal that would last until he died on this date in 1888, one hundred twenty-eight years ago.
Saint John Bosco stands a rebuke to everything that manner in which the conciliar revolutionaries refuse to seek converts to what they think is the Catholic Church and the manner in which they reaffirm unrepentant sinners in lives that could lead them to Hell for all eternity if they do not go to Confession and amend their lives. This brief reflection, written about four or five years ago, I believe, is an effort to capture the spirit of this magnificent teacher of the young, mystic and zealous apostle of souls.
As I need another solid eight to ten hours of uninterrupted work to complete "Sober Up, part ten," an amount of time that will not be available to me until the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Thursday, February 2, 2017, the concluding part of the series that began a few days after the election on Tuesday, November 8, 2016, may not appear until Friday, February 3, 2017, the Feast of Saint Blase and the tenth anniversary of the death of Sharon's father, John Griffith Collins III. Although much is happening at this time at a pace that is without any kind of precedent in American history, I want to be methodical in the presentation of my analysis, something that requires many hours of work. Remember, I write not for the short term but to provide the few people who read this site with analyses that seek to transcend the crises of the moment, and thus it is that I thank you for your patience.
Vivat Christus Rex! Viva Cristo Rey!
