Everyone Loses When Our King Reigneth Not Over Men and Their Nations, part three

This commentary explains the RyanCare debacle in light of the simple fact that men who are governed by no other principle than their own political self-interest will never have the courage to stand up against that which is forbidden by the laws of God and men.

Everyone loses when Our King reigneth not over men and their nations.

I am sorry for the length of time that it took to complete this commentary. The next original commentary should follow in a few days (as well as an update to the notorious fund-raising letter!).

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint John Damascene: Protecting the Images That Last For All Eternity

Many of the conciliar revolutionaries have smashed statues of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and Our Lady and Saint Joseph and other saints with an iconoclastic abandon. 

The great saint whose feast we celebrate today, Saint John Damascene, fought the iconoclasts in his day. And while many, although far from all, of our Catholic churches are now in the hands of the conciliar iconoclasts, we can festoon our homes with images of Our Lord and Our Lady and Saint Joseph and other saints as we use these images to remind us of we are united to the saints represented in these images by means of the Communion of Saints and that we hope to share Heaven with them for all eternity in the glory of the Beatific Vision. 

Today is, of course, our daughter Lucy’s fifteenth birthday and the ninth anniversary of her First Holy Communion. The years have just flown by. I look at our daughter and see a tall girl a who stands around five feet, six inches tall. How did this happen? 

We are very blessed to have our dear daughter, who is being taught by a mother possessed of a pure love of the Holy Catholic Faith and a deep, tender devotion to the Mother of God. I give thanks every day and night for the blessings represented by my family. Deo gratias! Please do pray for Lucy Mary Therese Norma Droleskey on her birthday today. Thank you. 

Finally, I did make a good deal of progess with the next original article for this site. However, there is still a bit more work to do before I can post it, and I am awaiting a response to a question I posed to a Catholic physician that I would like to have before finalizing the article.

Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us. 

Saint John Damascene, pray for us.

Here To Stay, June 29, 2012

Although I am working on a commentary about RyanCare’s failure, it will not be ready for posting until Monday, March 27, 2017, the Feast of Saint John Damascene and the Commemoration of Monday in the Fourth Week of Lent. The articles may be fewer each month than in years past as I just no longer able to stay up long hours to complete them with the thoroughness that I seek to provide for those who access this site. Thanks for your patience.

In the meantime, however, I am reposting a commentary about the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States of America in the combined cases of National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius, June 28, 2012, that has great pertinence to what unfolded this past week. I offer to readers once again to demonstrate that outcomes such as Friday’s are relatively easy to predict, which is why I do not get agitated about the events of the day. There is no political, constitutional, legal, nondenominational, interdenominational, secular or otherwise naturalistic way out of the mess created by the Protestant Revolution’s overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King and the subsequent rise of the anti-Incarnational modern civil state.

Finally, Novus Ordo Watch has translated a news story alleging that Ratzinger and Bergoglio no longer speak to each other. This is something along the lines of Leon Trotsky no longer speaking to Joseph Stalin. Trotsky and Stalin differed only about the speed with which to pursue a worldwide revolution in behalf of Marxism. Trotsky wanted to spread the poison of Marxism-Leninism everywhere in the world. Stalin wanted to institutionalize it firmly in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics before there could be what Trotsky called "constant revolution" (the neoconservatives are direct ideological descendants of Trotsky as they desire constant warfare as the means to spread American "values" and to engage in "nation-building."

Similarly, Ratzinger and Bergoglio's may have some differences, but what I wrote two years ago remains as true now as it was then:  No Space Between Ratzinger and Bergoglio: So Close in Apostasy, So Far From Catholic Truth. Both men are egregious Modernists. They are both revolutionaries against the Catholic Faith.

A blessed Laetare Sunday to you all!

On the Feast of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary: Ecce Ancilla Domini, Fiat Mihi Secundum Verbum Tuum

Today's article is a slightly revised reflection on the transferred feast we celebrate today, the feast which signifies the moment when the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, the very Word through Whom all things were made, personally entered into human history as He was made Incarnate in the Virginal and Immaculate Womb of His Most Blessed Mother by the power of the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, Who overshadowed Our Lady after she had given her perfect Fiat to the Will of the First Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Father, as that Will was made known to her by Saint Gabriel the Archangel.

The whole of human history is changed today--and no one can remain neutral about what happened on this day. If the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity really did become Man this day in Our Lady's Virginal and Immaculate Womb so as to redeem us on the wood of the Holy Cross thirty-three years later, as we know is indeed the case, then every person and every nation on the face of this earth must acknowledge this fact and subordinate everything to the Deposit of Faith that He has entrusted exclusively to His Catholic Church for Its eternal safekeeping and infallible explication.

We must pray to Our Lady every day so that we will never lose sight of the centrality of the Incarnation in our own lives and in the lives of our nations, never lose sight of the fact that Holy Mass itself is Incarnational as the Word Who was made Incarnate in her Virginal and Immaculate Womb is made Incarnate on altars of sacrifice under the appearances of bread and wine by true bishops and true priests. Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ spent nine months in the tabernacle of Our Lady's Virginal and Immaculate Womb, thereby sanctifying the wombs of al mothers. He is in solidarity with every child in every mother's womb. Every abortion, whether by chemical or surgical means, is an indirect attack on the Incarnation that took place this very day.

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

The next original article should appear tomorrow, Laetare Sunday.

There Is Nothing "Pro-Life" About RyanCare

What is called the "American Health Care Act," aka RyanCare or ObamaCareLite, will be voted upon by the Committee of the Whole in the United States House of Representatives at some point today even though the vote has been delayed because of wrangling over fiscal matters contained in the bill. My objection to ObamaCare and RyanCare is simple: (a) there no constitutional authority for the Federal government to direct the provision of health insurance; (b) there is nothing "pro-life" about Ryan Care despite the defunding of Planned Barrenhood.

This commentary, which has been expanded to include an appenix about a registered nurse's eyewitness testimony of how a hopisce killed her forty-three year-old son, who was not near death or in pain despite knowing that the leukemia from which he was suffering was incurable. This is must-reading.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Cosmas and Damian, pray for us.

Saint Benedict of Nursia: Praying and Working for Christendom, Not Conciliarism

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. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

On The Feast of Saint Joseph: Our Patron and Protector

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!"

A blessed Feast of Saint Joseph to you all! 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, pray for us.

An original article, Jorge's Guide to Clerical Malformation: Textbook Modernism, was posted at Midnight yesterday and tweaked a bit about fifteen hours later.

Jorge's Guide for Clerical Deformation: Textbook Modernism

The false "pontiff" addressed the priests and presbyters of Rome (Italy, not New York) seventeen days ago.

This is a brief word or two about the Argentine Apostate's textbook Modernism that he represents as a guide to "clerical formation."

Yesterday, March 18, 2017, was the thirty-fifth anniversary of the death of my mother, Norma Florence Droleskey, in her beloved Corpus Christi, Texas, at the age of sixty-one years, twelve days. She had been diagnosed with stomach and esophageal cancer just seven weeks before her death. 

I had intended to write a brief reflection about my mother prior to her death. My recent illness prevented me from doing so, and I have been waiting to receive family photographs that I have not seen in a quarter century since my late father's death on September 5, 1992, although it does not appear that I am going to get them anytime in the near future. 

Suffice it to say for the moment, though, that it is so hard to believe that my mother died thirty-five years ago. Please do pray for the repose of her immortal soul.

Yesterday was also the tenth anniversary of Father Daniel Johnson, the pastor of Saint Mary by the Sea Church in Huntington Beach, California, for over twenty-five years, and the ninth anniversary of the death of Mrs. Theresa Colgan, the mother of a friend of ours who had been a student of mine at Saint Francis College in Brooklyn, New York, during the 1985-1986 academic year. Please pray for their souls as well

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, pray for us.



Jorge's Program of Eternal Warming

Although the subject of Jorge's Band of Theological Racketeers Legitimize Paul Ehrlich two months ago, the Pontifical Academy of Science's conference on "Biological Exinction" was as bad as advertised.

Indeed, the Argentine Apostate himself is reported to have said that families must be limited in their size if parents cannot raise their children "properly." 

This is but a brief response to such apostasy, which doubts the providential care of God for His rational creatures and deifies the earth while making man its slave.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Patrick, pray for us.

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 during Passiontide. 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.

A blessed Feast of Saint Patrick to you all! 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Patrick, pray for us.
