Saint Paul the Apostle: Converted By Our Blessed Lord Himself

Today is the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul the Apostle and the Commemoration of Saint Peter. Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ personally intervened to effect the conversion of the fire-breathing hater and persecutor of Catholics, Saul of Tarsus. By so doing, of course, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity made Man in His Most Blessed Mother's Virginal and Immaculate Womb by the power of the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, violated the counterfeit church of conciliarism's prohibition of proselytism. Saul of Tarsus did not seek out Our Lord, but was sought out by Him so that he would become Saint Paul, the Apostle to the Gentiles one of twin pillars of the Church of Rome along with the first pope himself, Saint Peter the Apostle.

"Sober Up, part nine," is progressing well as the basic documentation has been gathered to demonstrate to the relatively few people who read this site that the Mexico City Policy, which was reinstated on Monday, January 23, 2016, the Feast of Saint Raymond of Penafort and the Commemoration of Saint Emerentiana, according to the rules promulgated by then President George Walker Bush on March 28, 2001, as published in the Federal Register, continues to be a porous sham.

Almost Always Silent About the Holy Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ Before Men

This is being published just a few minutes before one o'clock in the morning on Tuesday, January 24, 2017, the Feast of Saint Timothy. 

Today's commentary, which took several days to complete, examines the continued silence about the Holy Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ on the part on the conciliar revolutionaries when they are gathered in public settings. Two of those who exhibited silence about the Holy Name of Jesus "prayed" in front of the President Donald John Trump and Vice President Michael Richard Penance on Friday, January 20, 2017, the Feast of Saints Fabian and Sebastian were Timothy MIchael "Cardinal" Dolan and "Father" Patrick Conroy, S.J., who said six years ago now that he never prays in the Name of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ except when he is doing something "Catholic." Ah, to do something "Catholic" one must be a Catholic, and apostates such as Messrs. Dolan and Conroy expelled themselves from the bosom of Holy Mother Church long ago by clinging to anathematized propostions and by their public embrace of false religions.

May God have mercy on us all.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Timothy, pray for us.

Sober Up, part eight

[Late-night update on Friday, January 20, 2017: Although I would like to have had another article ready for posting by now, it is not possible to complete my article, and it is probably best for me to wait as it will deal with the religious indifferentism displayed at the inaugural ceremonies yesteday for President Donald John Trump and that will be displayed tomorrow at the so-called Washington National Cathedral in Washington, District of Columbia. Tomorrow's event could actually be called "Assisi West" as representatives of twenty-six religions will offer prayers or/or remarks. 

[For the moment, however, remember that the conciliar presbyer who serves as the Chaplain of the United States House of Representatives, "Father" Patrick Conroy, S.J., who is only a year older than I am, chose not to invoke the Holy Name of Jesus in his closing prayer at the Congressional luncheon honoring President Trump and Vice President Michael Richard Pence, a baptized Catholic who apostatized in his youth. "Father" Conroy is a true son of both Americanism and the conciliar revolution as he said in an interview in 2011:

"I never pray in the name of Jesus -- except when I'm doing something Catholic -- saying Mass, for example." (

[This quotation will figure prominently in my next commentary.]

The new segment in the "Sober Up" series focuses on how successful Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro has been in the past eight years as he has helped to institutionalize various moral evils beyond any attempt for well-meaning naturalists to denounce those evils by their proper names. Thus it is that Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama), who is certainly a well-meaning man, was forced to use the "settled law" line with respect to baby-killing and perversity, and that Betsy DeVos, President Donald John Trump's nominee to be the United States Secretary of Education, was forced to disavow efforts to convert those engaged in sodomite behavior out of their chosen sins. Democrats never compromise in their support of evil. Republicans always bend to the "reality" of evils once institutionalized.

Catholicism is the only foundation of personal and social order.

A brief reflection on Saints Fabian and Sebastian will be added in the commentary to be posted late tomorrow or Sunday.

Part nine of this series should appear on Monday or Tuesday as there is much to assess, starting with President Trump's inauguration address and the executive actions he took in the hours that followed.

Finally, as we have another four days to go before I receive the meager monthly payment support the family as a result of my paying into a certain "social security system" during my thirty plus years as a college professor, any and all non-tax-deductible financial gifts would be greatly appreciated at this time as they are very greatly needed. We do very much need your help at this time. 

Thank you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Examples Aplenty To Rebuke Jorge and His Band of Apostates

Although the next installment of "Sober Up" is nearing its completion, I thought that it would be helpful to the few readers of this website to contrast the work of the saints whose feasts have been celebrated and commemorated yesterday and today with the apostate work of the conciliar "popes," including Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

It is a very late (or early) hour. The next installment of "Sober Up" should appear in about twenty-four hours.

Today's brief reflection also includes the Chair of Unity Octave that began yesterday and is concluded on Wednesday, January 25, 2017, the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul the Apostle.

Conciliarism: Utterly Defenseless Against Its Own Falsehoods

The counterfeit church of conciliarism is coallpsing under the weight of its false premises. 

Although even "conservatives" within the counterfeit church of conciliarism would never admit it, the fact remains that the upcoming appearance of the population controller named Paul Ehrlich at a conference next month at the conciliar occupied Vatian on "Biological Extinction" is the direct result of Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria/Paul VI's endorsement of the personalist view of marriage that had been condemned by Pope Pius XII on April 1, 1944, which became the basis for accepting that which had always been foreign to the mind of Holy Mother Church, namely, the concept of "family limitation."

Yes, Paul the Sick made it possible for Paul Ehrlich to appear at the Vatican even though he did not intend this to be the case. Then again, Martin Luther did not intend the wreckage that occurred in the immediate aftermath of his revolution against the Divine Plan that God Himself instituted to effect man's return to Him through the Catholic Church. Montini/Paul VI is no more a reliable teacher of the Faith than Luther even though he, Montini, has been "beatified" by Jorge Mario Bergoglio and Luther has been declared to be a "reliable witness" of the Faith.

Several other articles are in the line-up to be posted. Once again, the absence of articles does not mean an absence of the work that goes into producing them.

Jorge's Band of Theological Racketeers Legitimize Paul Ehrlich

Although I am working on both parts eight and nine of “Sober Up” (part nine also concludes “Jerusalem Belongs to Christ the King”), the announcement that the discredited population control advocate, Dr. Paul Ehrlich, will speak at an upcoming conference on “Biological Extinction” under the aegis of the counterfeit church of conciliarism required a bit of attention.

Men Continue To Love The Darkness Rather Than the Light of the Gentiles, Christ the King

The beating of a mentally disabled man by four barbarians in Chicago, Illinois, has been the subject of much commentary, none of which has made the connection between the systematic warfare against Christ the King and His true Church and the rise of barbaric acts of violence committed upon innocent human beings after birth, to say nothing of the barbaric acts of violence committed by “civilized” medical “professionals” upon the innocent preborn in the sanctuaries of their mothers’ wombs. This commentary is a relatively brief way of reminding the readers of this site to keep focused on root causes as the conflicts between the false opposites of the naturalist “left” and “right that are now at a fever pitch are diversions from the adversary to distract us from the fact that one brand of naturalism can never be used to retard the evils associated with another brand of naturalism. Catholicism is the one and only means of human salvation and of all genuine social order. I am sorry for the delay in posting this article as the entire week thus far has been spent dealing with our furnace, which stopped working during cold weather six nights ago, and problems with our 2008 used minivan. There should be time later today, Thursday, January 12, 2017, to finish “Sober Up, part seven,” before completing “Jerusalem Belongs to Christ the King and His true Church. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

The Model for All Families: The Holy Family

[Late evening update: Monday, January 9, 2017: The next commentary, which is about the savagely brutal assault conducted by four blacks upon a disabled white man who was known to be a supporter of President-elected Donald John Trump, in President Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro's adopted home city of Chicago, Illinois, where black on black homicides are the order of the day, sadly, is progressing. However, the article, which is nearing completion, has been delayed by the complete breakdown of our furnace and the fact that, as God's Providence would have it, the front end of our car is need of work once again. These crosses have been perfectly fitted for us by the loving hand of God from all eternity for His greater honor and glory and for our sanctification as the consecrated slaves of His Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. We are grateful for our crosses. Penance is indeed better than ever in 2017! Deo graitas! Thanks for your patience.]

Sunday within the Octave of the Epiphany of Our Lord, was the Feast of the Holy Family of Nazareth and the Commemoration of the First Sunday after the Epiphany.

Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ chose to become Man in His Most Blessed Mother's Virginal and Immaculate Womb by the power of the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, and place Himself, the Co-Equal and Co-Eternal Son of God the Father, under subjection to mere creatures His Most Blessed Mother, the fairest flower of our race, and to Good Saint Joseph, his foster-father. The subjection of the God-Man to the authority of His Most Blessed Mother and his foster-father, whom He had chosen from all eternity to provide Him with the earthly love and care and stewardship of a father seeking only to please God with his every thought, word an deed, teaches us that we, who came from families and who, in many instances, are raising families of our own, must be subject to all legitimate authority, duly constituted, in all things that do not pertain to sinful commands.

Children are supposed to learn this subjection in the household from their tenderest days, seeing in their fathers the image of Saint Joseph and in their mothers the image of Our Lady. Children are supposed to realize that God in the very Flesh obeyed His creatures in the Holy Family of Nazareth. So must they.

Parents must, for their part, foster an atmosphere within the family of selflessness, charity, forgiveness and joy, centering the family's life on daily assistance at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass (if at all possible), regular time spent in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament, the daily recitation of Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary, supplications to Our Lady's Most Chaste Spouse, Saint Joseph, home enthronement to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Total Consecration to Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the same Immaculate Heart of Mary, Scriptural reading and family reading time, especially about the lives of the saints, and a refusal to participate in the rot of popular culture. This requires sacrifice and the willingness to be misunderstood, calumniated and rejected even by one's own family members as we protect our children from those cultural currents that come from the devil and are designed to lead each of us to Hell for all eternity.

To eschew worldliness one must be ready to embrace the Holy Poverty of the Holy Family of Nazareth, detaching oneself from the material acquisitiveness of our consumer society, shaped by Judeo-Calvinist materialism, and to live in light of First Things and Last Things as we week to acquire the only thing that matters: Sanctifying Grace in this life and eternal life in the glory of the Beatific Vision of Father, Son and Holy Ghost in Heaven.

An original article, "Decadent Is The World To Describe Conciliarism, Not Scholasticism," was published yesterday morning after 1:00 a.m. Please scroll below for its link.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, we love you, save souls!

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, pray for us now and in death's agony.

A blessed Feast of the Holy Family of Nazareth to you all.

Decadent Is The Word To Describe Conciliarism, Not Scholasticism

Jorge Mario Bergoglio recently denounced a "decadent" Scholasticisim.

Although there is nothing really new about this (and noting that there is a good analysis of Beroglio's denuncation at Novus Ordo Watch Wire), I have gone to considerable length to demonstrate to the few remaining readers of this website Bergoglio is, quite of course, just a little bit at odds with the true teaching of the Catholic Church.

I am sorry for the delay in getting this posted. A search for some kind of employment occupies a good deal of my time as unexpected expenses (a furnace that is failing, for example, and the front end of our car that has to be repaired because of the effects of poor road conditions) cannot be met by the few very generous souls who continue to support the work of this site. However, I did work on this article throughout the week, and I hope that a few of you will take the time to read it.

Work continues on my next article as transcription of important textual material nears completion.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Manifesting Himself To The Gentiles and Thus to the World

[The lack of a new article in the past four days does not signify that no work is being done for the next article. Indeed, transcription is being done for one article and another, which is nearing completion, is being written as circumstances permit. There are only so many hours in the day, and to be as thorough as I want requires time. Again, I thank you for your patience. Today's posting is a revised reflection on the Feast of the Epiphany of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.]

Our Lord was made manifest on Christmas Day to the handful of Jewish people, including the shepherds in the field who were sent to adore Him by the angels who had announced the following:

And there were in the same country shepherds watching, and keeping the night watches over their flock. And behold an angel of the Lord stood by them, and the brightness of God shone round about them; and they feared with a great fear. And the angel said to them: Fear not; for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, that shall be to all the people:

For, this day, is born to you a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord, in the city of David. And this shall be a sign unto you. You shall find the infant wrapped in swaddling clothes, and laid in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly army, praising God, and saying: Glory to God in the highest; and on earth peace to men of good will. And it came to pass, after the angels departed from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another: Let us go over to Bethlehem, and let us see this word that is come to pass, which the Lord hath shewed to us.

And they came with haste; and they found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger. And seeing, they understood of the word that had been spoken to them concerning this child.And all that heard, wondered; and at those things that were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these words, pondering them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God, for all the things they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. (Luke 2: 6-20.)

Today's feast, the Feast of the Epiphany of Our Lord, known colloquially in Ireland as "Little Christmas" and in many other places as Three Kings' Day, celebrates Our Lord's manifestation to the whole world through the Gentiles. Indeed, the Offertory for today's Mass explains that all kings shall adore Christ King and that all nations shall serve Him:

"The kings of Tharsis and the islands shall offer presents: the kings of the Arabians and of Saba shall bring gifts: and all kings of the earth shall adore Him: all nations shall serve Him."

The United States of America is no exception to this. We must pray for the day when the leaders of this country, founded on the falsehoods of Protestantism and Judeo-Masonry that are so hateful to Our King, will adore Him as their King and the day when this nation will serve Him as it acknowledges His Social Kingship over it by submitting in all that pertains to the good of souls to the authority of the Catholic Church that He Himself founded upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope. We are suffering at the hands of statists today because the men of Modernity who believed that they had no obligation to offer public worship to Christ the King through His true Church set us on a course that can result only in the triumph of the civil state over the King of Kings Who was made manifest to Saints Caspar, Melchior, and Balthasar on this day. We must make Him manifest in our own lives at at all times, never fearing to suffer in behalf of the truths of the Holy Faith or to suffer in the cause of justice when souls are placed into jeopardy needlessly even by some of our own true shepherds.

A blessed Feast of the Epiphany of Our Lord to you all!
