Revised: Understood by God Alone

This article in honor of Saint John of God, whose feast is celebrated today, was written nine years ago now. A lot of hard work went into its completion. I believe it to be one a piece that will give great consolation to those who have not as of yet read it.

Saint John of God was little understood during his life. It was the case that even his longtime spiritual director, Saint John of Avila, who knew him fairly well, did not understand his decisions. Saint John of God suffered from all manner of slanders and even beatings in his life. He suffered slanders even up to the point of his own death. It was enough for him to be understood by God. It should be enough for us as well, especially during this time of apostasy and betrayal when so many of us are misunderstood and castigated by relatives and friends and acquaintances as being "outside of the Church" for our refusal to make any concessions to conciliarism or its false shepherds. We should be grateful that we are as misunderstood and hated and calumniated as was Saint John of God!

Work on my next original article, which deals with Bergoglio's boilerplate conciliarism whilst in Iraq, continues. As the Argentine Apostate is likely to conduct one of his infamous "in flight interviews" en route from Baghdad to Rome, the commentary may notbe ready for posting until Wednesday, the Feast of the Forty Holy Martyrs and the Commemoration of Wednesday in the Third Week of Lent. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

 

Saint John of God, pray for us.

On the Feast of the Angelic Doctor: Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P.

This is a revised and expanded, although still entirely inadequate, commentary on the commemorated feast of Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., on this Third Sunday of Lent in 2021.

Two original articles are being developed at this time. One of these will be a mercifully brief treatment of Jorge Mario Bergoglio's boilerplate conciliarspeak in Iraq; the other will be part two of the commentary published on Thursday, March 4, 2021, the Feast of Saint Casimir and the Commemorations of Thursday in the Second Week of Lent and of Pope Saint Lucius I.

Nearly Seventy Years of Priesthood Spent Making What Is Clear Seem Obscure, part one

As I must arise just about four hours after this brief commentary is posted, there is time only to note that this article concerns Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Antipope Emeritus Benedict XVI and another man named Joseph, namely the President of the United States of America in Name Only, Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr.

Ratzinger, steeped in the obscurity, vagueness, opaqueness, and incertitude of the “new theology,” can’t recognize that there is nothing to “wonder” about why PINO Biden supports the Democratic Party line on the chemical and surgical execution of innocent preborn children. One has to be living on a different planet and/or in alternative universe to be so oblivious to the fact that the cognitively challenged, venal, demagogic plagiarizing Beijing Candidate, if you will, who resides in the White House has been unapologetic in his support for baby-killing and perversity.

I have been busy with book projects and hope to one have of these books published in time for Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s eighth anniversary as the universal public face of apostasy on March 13, 2021.

Part two of this commentary should appear by Monday, March 8, 2021, the Feast of Saint John of God and the Commemoration of Monday in the Third Week of Lent.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Casimir, pray for us.

Pope Saint Lucius I, pray for us.

Revised and Expanded: Sin: More Dangerous Than the Coronavirus, part eleven

Last week's intermittent power outages (which was referred to as "load shedding" by the misnamed Energy Reliability Council of Texas) prevented me from having the sort of consistent access to the internet that is necessary to complete these article.

This commentary, which was published originally on Monday, February 22, 2021, the Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter in Antioch and the Commemorations of Saint Paul and Monday in the First Week of Lent, was considerably enlarged on Friday, February 26, 2021, Ember Friday in the First Week of Lent, to include new information about deaths caused by the Pfizer BioNTech that are not being reported either by the United States Centers for Disease Control and that are occurring in other parts of the world, including Spain and the Federal Republic of Germany. 

Although I do hope to have a commentary dealing with the out-of-control statism of the new presidential administration by next week, I am concentrating on three different book projects at this time. Thank you.

Yes, this is another lengthy commentary. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.

Memento Homo, Quia Pulvis Es, Et in Pulverem Reverteris (2021)

Our annual Lenten journey into the desert begins on Ash Wednesday, February 17, 2021. Deo gratias!

As we are one of millions of people being subjected to "rolling blackouts" of varying periods (with equally varying periods of restored power) here in the State of Texas because of the type of temperatures and snowy conditions that are very rare in most of this state, my access to the internet is intermittent, which is why this republished commentary is being posted now.

I am working on a new commentary. However, it is going to take a bit longer to complete as I need access to the internet for various sources to quote, including late-breaking developments that might be important to include therein. Thank you for your understanding.

The season that begins on Ash Wednesday is the time of penance. This is the time to withdraw from the world. This is the time to be earnest about relying upon the ineffable graces that were won for us by the shedding of every single drop of the Most Precious Blood of Our Divine Redeemer, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, during His Passion and Death and that flow into our sous through the loving hands of His Most Blessed Mother, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces.

This period of six weeks, four days until Easter Sunday (six weeks, three and one-half days until the Easter Vigil) is nearly one-ninth of an entire calendar year. May we beg Our Lady to help us make the best Lent of our lives as we do not know if it will be our last. Indeed, we do not know whether we will live to see Easter Sunday in this life on Sunday, April 4, 2021.

Our Lady of Dolors, pray for us.

Republished: On the Feast of the Apparition of Our Lady of Lourdes

Today is the one hundred sixty-second anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady to Saint Bernadette Soubirous in the Grotto of Massabielle near Lourdes, France. Our Lady explained to the fourteen year-old Bernadette that we must do penance for our sins and for those of others.

Can we do any less in our day?

Indeed, the state of the Church Militant on earth and of the world-at-large has worsened as the sins of men have grown more numerous and more daring and as most baptized Catholics have been deprived of access to Sanctifying Grace by virtue of the invalid sacraments offered in the counterfeit church of conciliarism. God is not going to permit any country that kills the innocent preborn with legal impunity and kills souls in the name of the falsehoods of "freedom of speech" and "freedom of the press" and "freedom of religion" and a general sense of legal and cultural licentiousness to know long term material prosperity. Then again, these merchants of death have been enabled by the conciliar revolutionaries, who believe that signs of "outward penance belong to a different era in the history of the Church." We must indeed take Our Lady's injunction, "Penance! Penance! Penance! Pray to God for sinners," most seriously as we pray as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permits. 

As noted in the update posted about twenty-four hours ago, I am working on book projects at this time. While I will continue to write for the website as time permits, I do want to put a representative sampling of the over two thousand articles that have appeared on this site since February 17, 2004, as it replaced the printed journal, Christ or Chaos, which had been in publication between August of 1996 and January of 2004 (this means that the work of Christ or Chaos is in its twenty-fifth year) in book form.

The current series of books upon I am working to format is on the blatherings and actions of Joseph Alois Ratzinger and Jorge Mario Bergoglio. The first volume, upon which I worked most of yesterday, Wednesday, February 10, 2021, the Feast of Saint Scholastica, contans articles from around this time seven years ago, a year after Jorge Mario Bergoglio's election to the conciliar seat of apostasy. It is truly amazing to review the extent to which the Argentine Apsotate's agenda had been laid out with clarity. The current volume will be around seven hundred pages in length. Subsequent volumes will appear, God willing and Our Lady interceding, over the course of the next six or seven months. There should a total of twenty volumes.

Finally, as noted a day ago, I am paying zero attention to the impeachment proceedings of  a private citizen. What little I have read--and it is very little--indicates that the conclusion of this unconstitutional farce is very clear, and it will be after its conclusion that I will either write a commentary or prepare a video presentation. 

Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.

Saint Bernardette Soubirous, pray for us.

Sin: More Deadly Than the Coronavirus, part ten

This commentary has been updated with a bit of additional information.

This commentary is lengthy, and I suppose that the appendix could serve as a brief stand-alone commentary of its own.

Anyhow, the title is self-explanatory.

The first update to this commentary was made around1:34 p.m., Central Standard Time, on Monday, February 8, 2021, the Feast of Saint John of Matha, to include a news story about a man in New York City who died within twenty-five minutes of receiving being vaccinated for "protection" from the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus. Well, I suppose that death "protects" one from getting the virus. The mendacity of the public health officials is remarkable to behold.

As I intend to work on book projects more than write for this site in the next few months, I will not be writing about the impeachment trial of a private citizen until after the farce is over. There is much to comment upon, of course, but suffice it to say for the moment that there is nothing to be gained to make any comment until the "trial," such as it is, has reached its denouement. although perhaps it should be noted that, even though I am not following the proceedings live and have no intention whatsoever to do so, I think that there is a very slight chance of conviction if the former president's lawyers continue along a path that has, according to reports, enraged him and caused those who understand the whole proces to be unconstitutional to wonder if those lawyers can recover from what has been described as a haphazard and aimless presentation yesterday, Tuesday, February 9, 2021, the Feast of Saint Cyril of Alexandria and the Commemoration of Saint Apollonia. I don't know about you, but I have had enough with the business and am trying to prepare for the beginning of Lent one week from today, that is, on Wednesday, February 17, 2021.

Finally, there is need for non-tax-deductible financial gifts if any reader who has the means to do so and has not donated lately would like to donate at this time.

Thank you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint John of Matha, pray for us.

Jorge Puts His Faith in "Fraternity," Not Christ the King

The Argentine Apostate participated in the so-called International Day of Human Fraternity.

This is my commentary about such apostasy.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Agatha, pray for us.

 

Jorge Flexes His Antipapal Muscles

The events associated with  so-called International Day of Human Fraternity will have taken place by the time most of the few people who continue to access this website come across this new commentary.

Nevertheless, however, the new commentary deals with the Argentine Apostate's efforts to blunt criticism of yet another of his acts of apostasy by reminding those who believe him be what he is not, that is, a true and legitimate Successor of Saint Peter, to obey the "magisterium" of his false religious sect and that no concessions would be made to those who do not.

Even a blind mouse can find cheese now and again.

Senor Jorge was correct about the necessity of obeying a true pope, but events such as the one transpiring today, Thursday, February 4, 2021, the Feast of Saint Andrew Corsini, contine to prove that he is not a true pope and that his religious sect is nothing other the counterfeit church of conciliarism, not the Catholic Church, she who is the spotless mystical spouse of her Divine Founder, Invisible Head and Divine Bridegroom, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for  us.

Saint Andrew Corsini, pray for us.

Republished: Jorge Signs Off on the One World Ecumenical Religion (2019)

As Jorge Mario Bergoglio is going to be participating in an act of apostasy called the “World Day of Human Fraternity” on Thursday, February 4, 2021, the Feast of Saint Andrew Corsini, I thought that it would apropos to republish this article from two years ago following “Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together.” A related commentary is in development as I continue to work on part ten of “Sin: More Deadly Than the Coronavirus.”

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Blase, pray for us.
