Antichrist Continues To Have His Way With Believing Catholics, part two

Several readers wrote to me to inform me that the home page of this site had reverted to its original format, replete with descriptions of articles published between May 31, 2013, and December 31, 2013.

What had happened was that the gentleman who had revamped this site twenty-seven months ago attempted to revert everything back to the Contribute platform on which this site existed from February 20, 2004, to around January 20, 2014. I had requested him to do so as the problems with the Drupal platform have become very time consuming.

Indeed, I was in the midst of updating the old Contribute home page yesterday morning when I received an e-mail from the gentleman to inform me that everything had been switched back to the Drupal platform after he had run a number of security updates. It is good that he did so as the Contribute program was eating up my internet allotment at a very alarming pace (I can only afford ten gigabytes a month at a rather exorbitant cost). I am sorry for the confusion.

As should be well known to longtime readers of this site, I am very “low tech,” shall we say. I know nothing about the inner workings of computer programs and software. Computer code is a mystery for me that not even Perry Mason and Robert T. Ironside combined for solve to my satisfaction. All I do these days is write (the speaking and the teaching days ended long ago). My reliance upon experts just to maintain this site is total, and thank the gentleman who has spent so much time helping me with this site in the past twenty-seven months, He is a good friend to do this for me at no cost. Please do pray for this good Catholic man and his family.

One reader even asked if the fictional Winston Smith, protagonist in George Orwell’s 1984, had been at work flushing my articles down the memory hole. This was not the case, although I do think that the Clinton II administration will make a concerted effort to shut down sites that propagate what its Christophobic minions believe to be “hate speech,” which would include, of course, any and all criticism of them and their policies. The time is short, I believe, which is why I am endeavoring to put a good sampling of these articles in book form before such repression is instituted and then given constitutional sanction by the justices that Madame Defarge will appoint to the Supreme Court of the United States of America.

Today’s article deals with both the farce of naturalism that is coming to its all-too-logical conclusion and with the praise that Jorge Mario Bergoglio offered recently for the man who bears most of the proximate responsibility for the triumph of naturalism in the world, Father Martin Luther, O.S.A.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque: Truly Suffering for the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus

Do you think that you have sufferings from family members or associates?

The saint whose feast is celebrated today, Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, was favored with visions of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in her childhood, and he believed this to have been a normal experience that any child might have. Even as a child, therefore, this favored child of Our Lord's was blessed with tremendous sufferings from a pair of domineering paternal aunts, who persecuted her and her mother after her father's death. This early childhood suffering, which was accompanied by a physical affliction that left her bedridden for four years, was just a preparation for the suffering that Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque endured to spread public devotion to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus at the specific request of Our Lord Himself.

The hearts of men had grown cold because of Jansenism when Our Lord revealed the secrets of His Most Sacred Heart to Sister Margaret Mary Alacoque in the Visitation Convent in Paray le Monial, France, between December of 1673 and June of 1685. We cannot let our own love for the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus grow cold in our hearts. We must forgive as we are forgiven, and we must remember the high price of infidelity that France paid for the refusal of King Louis XIV to consecrate the whole of France, and not just Paris, to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus (as is related in an appendix to this article).

Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, an intimate of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and a faithful client of Our Lady through her Most Holy Rosary, pray for us.

Jorge's Kind of Catholics

As this is being posted close to 1:00 a.m. on the Feast of Saint Teresa of Jesus (St. Teresa of Avila, whose life will be reviewed in a brief reflection to be posted tomorrow), time and physical strength permit me to tell you that this article deals with the WikiLeaks release of e-mails that featured exchanges among three Catholic Clintonistas about their views of the Catholic Church. The e-mail releases do not prove anti-Catholicism. No, they prove ignorance of the true Faith as a result of the corrupt teaching and practices of the counterfeit church of conciliarism.

Yes, John Podesta, John Halpin, and Jennifer Palmieri are Jorge's kind of Catholics.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Teresa of Jesus, pray for us.

The Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Does Not Act On Her Own

This is a reflection on the anniversary of the ninety-ninth and final apparition of Our Lady in the Cova da Iria near Fatima, Portugal, as the Miracle of the Sun occurred and she, clothed in the garment of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, proclaimed herself to be Our Lady of the Rosary. We need to heed Our Lady's Fatima Message as it is nothing other than Heaven's own Peace Plan.

Part two of my current series should appear by tomorrow, and it will incorporate the latest WikiLeaks e-mail dump about the anti-Catholicism of Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton and her associates. While this is not any kind of news to those of us who wrote extensively about the Clintons in the 1990s, the new WikiLeaks revelation demonstrates the depth of the professional "left's" hatred for Catholicism. Ironically, however, the "left" hates true Catholicism, which is not the religion of the likes Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who is more than "ready for Hillary." Jorge is a kindred spirit of the "left," and he has shown himself quite adept at enabling purveyors of statism and death with unfailing fealty.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.

Saint Edward the Confessor, pray for us.

On The Feast of The Theokotos

oday is the Feast of the Divine Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Commemoration of the Twentieth Sunday after Pentecost

The Council of Ephesus (431 A.D.) declared Our Lady to be the Mother of God. This is a doctrine that that the devil particularly hates, which is why he has raised up all manner of Protestant sects to attack it with a fury, which we why we must defend the doctrine of the Divine Maternity of Our Lady with all of the graces that she sees fit to send us through her loving hands as the Mediatrix of All Graces.

As Father Benedict Baur, O.S.B., explained in The Light of the World, Volume II:

"Fifteen hundred years have passed since Nestorius, a Patriarch of Constantinople, launched the heresy which taught that the person of Christ was different from the person of the Son of God. Nestorius asserted that Mary did not conceive nor bring forth the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity, but only the man Christ. According to his teaching she was not the Mother of God, not a God-bearer, but only the mother of a mere man, in whom God dwelt only as in a temple. A few years later after the beginning of the Nestorian heresy, a council was assembled at Ephesus (431 A.D.), which proclaimed that Mary had given birth to Jesus, who was, at one and the same time, God and man, having two natures but one person. God does not live in Him merely as in a temple, but the man Jesus is at the same time God. Mary is mother, not only of the humanity of Christ, but of the Son of God also. She is the Mother of God. The people of Ephesus awaited the decision of the council hall were opened and the decision was made known, the people greeted the Fathers with great rejoicing and accompanied them to their dwellings with flaming torches, crying out: 'Mary is the bearer of God; Mary is the Mother of God.' Today, fifteen hundred years later, we make the same joyful confession.

"Mary is the mother of Jesus, the Son of God. The Gospel recounts an incident of His childhood during which He first refers to His divine origin. When Jesus was twelve years old, Joseph and Mary went to Jerusalem to offer sacrifice. 'When they returned, the child Jesus remained in Jerusalem, and His parents knew it not.' They believed Him to be in the company of relatives. But they were mistaken. After a long and anxious search they found Him in the Temple, sitting among the doctors of the law. 'And His mother said to Him: Son, why hast Thou done to so us? Behold Thy father and I have sought Thee sorrowing.' This rebuke shows the concern of a mother who has borne suffering with love. But Jesus meekly answers: 'Did you not know that I must be about My Father's business?' He refers to His Heavenly Father, for He is Son of God. He was conceived, not by the power of man, but by the power of God (Offertory). When the angel had first brought the message to Mary, she had answered: Behold the handmaid of Lord; be it done unto me according to thy word" (Luke 1: 38). And at her word, the only-begotten Son of God was made flesh in the womb of the Virgin Mother. We pray tribute to this mystery at the Communion, when we confess, 'Blessed is the womb of the Virgin Mary, which bore the Son of the eternal Father.' Blessed art thou, O holy Mother of God, who wert united to the Son of God in a most intimate union when thou didst bear Him in thy womb.

"Mary provided the body for the Son of God, and he in return Christ filled the soul of Mary with the fullness of His spirit. Mary became wholly absorbed in Him and became like Him. She became united to Him in a most intimate union. 'Alleluia, alleluia. Virgin Mother of God, He whom the whole world cannot contain, enclosed Himself in thy womb, being made man, Alleluia.' 'Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.'

" 'As the vine, I have brought forth a pleasant odor, and my flowers are the fruit of honor and riches' (Epistle). The blossoms on this vine are the precious virtues of faith and humility which the Virgin exhibited when she received the message of the angel. She was resolute in her attachment to her virginity: "I know not man" (Luke 1: 34). Yet she is obedient to the will of God and speaks her fiat: "Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it done unto me according to thy word" (Luke 1: 38). "My flowers are the fruit of honor and riches," Christ the Lord. "There shall come forth a rod out of the root of Jesse," Mary, who is sprung from the house of David; "and a flower shall rise up out of his root," Christ, the Son of Mary (Gradual). Humanity and divinity are united in this one person. 'Come over to me, all yet that desire me, and be filled with my fruits' (Epistle). Mary does not keep her child for herself; she bequeaths Him to us when He is born at Bethlehem, when He is offered in the Temple, and when He offers Himself up on the cross. She gives Him to us again daily in Holy Communion. Mary has borne Christ for us. Together with her Divine Son, she has given us salvation and an abundance of grace. She stands even today at the throne of God as our advocate and or all-powerful intercessor, armed with irresistible intercessory power, the mother of all those who are in the state of sanctifying grace.

"We renew our faith in the mystery of Mary's divine motherhood. 'Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.' God is thy child, having taken His humanity from thy flesh.

" 'Come over to me . . . and be filled with my fruits,' for it is Christ Jesus whom I give you. He was first given to us when we were reborn through baptism: He is given to us today at Mass and Holy Communion: 'Hath He not also with Him given us all things?' (Rom. 8: 32.) Since Mary has given us all things through Christ, we today express our gratitude to her." (Father Benedict Baur, O.S.B., The Light of the World, Volume II, B. Herder Book Company, Saint Louis, Missouri, 1954, pp. 440-442.)

As we were away for thirteen days, yesterday, the Feast of Saint Francis Borgia, was spent in attending to necessary errands. The next original article on this site will appear on Wednesday, October 12, 2016. Given the fast-breaking pace of recent events, it is perhaps best that I was unable to write original articles while we were en route from one place to the next as a commentary written one day would have been obsolete by the next.

Moreover, I have endeavored to provide commentaries on current events that do not get lost in the "trees" of the moment. It is my goal to try to put the events of the moment in a proper supernatural perspective as one of the chief ways the adversary uses to distract believing Catholics from their prayers and from looking at the world exclusively through the eyes of the true Faith is to keep them agitated by one or more of his minions in the inter-related worlds of Modernity and Modernism. Thus it is that the next original article links events in these inter-related worlds in order to demonstrate that Antichrist is lining up his minions in the counterfeit church of conciliarism to provide "theological" cover for his minions in civil government in the United States of America and elsewhere in the world.

All the more reason to pray fervently to the Mother of God, especially in this month of October, dedicated as it is to her Most Holy Rosary.

A blessed Feast of the Divine Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary to you all!

Heaven's Instrument of Spiritual Combat: Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary

We must never tire of reminding our fellow Catholics that Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary is, after the perfect prayer, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the most powerful prayer we have to make reparation for our own sins and those of the whole world as we seek the conversion of all men to the true Faith, the Catholic Faith, before they die and to fight the heresies of Modernity in the world and Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism. We must promote the Rosary and pray it with fervor and devotion. Our Lady implored us at Fatima to pray the Rosary daily. How can we refuse her?

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Pope Saint Mark I, pray for us.

Saints Sergius, Bacchus, Marcellus, and Apuleius, pray for us.

October 6, 2016, Update: Feast of Saint Bruno

As we have been away for the past ten days now, it has been impossible to write new articles. There are several to be written upon our return, although I am simply running out of ways to say that Jorge Mario Bergoglio is a heretic and that the farce of naturalism that has agitated so many Catholics will result in the furtherance of naturalism, which is a principal tool of the adversary to advance the path for the coming of Antichrist. have said about as much as needs to be said about the contest of false opposites that will reach its predictable conclusion on Tuesday, November 8, 2016. 

Indeed,  and Deplorably Demagogic and Blasphemous have said about as much as needs to be said about the contest of false opposites that will reach its predictable conclusion on Tuesday, November 8, 2016. However, I will do my best next week to comment anew on that which I have commented a lot in the past, and the Argentine Apostate's recent pilgrimage to George and Azerbaijan wil also be the subject of a brief commentary

It was while en route back from that pilgrimage that Loose Lips Jorge, a man who makes Donald John Trump seem self-restrained and mortified, discussed the supposed "need" to "accompany" those who have surgically mutilated in their bodies in an effort to change that which is unchangeable: their gender. An article from thirty-two months ago, Mutilating All Truth, discussed Bergoglio's initial foray into bringing mutants into the "mainstream" of the counterfeit church of conciliarism.

Finally, a reader from the United Kingdom was kind enough to write to me earlier today to inform me that this site had gone into "maintenance mode" again. This is a recurring problem that will have to be addressed upon our return home in four days. 

A republished reflection on the Feast of the Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary will appear tomorrow, Friday, October 7, 2016. 

Thank you for your patience during our time away.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Bruno, pray for us.
