On the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, May 30, 2024

Today is the great Feast of Corpus Christi. This article, written a long time ago now and slightly revised over the years, is an exhortation to the readers of this site to spend more and more time in adoration before Our Beloved before His Real Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament if this is at all possible in your area. 

Adoration is the first end of prayer, including the perfect prayer that is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in which Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ becomes Incarnate under the appearances of bread and wine when a men man, uttering mere words over the elements of the earth, calls Him down from Heaven. We must adore God with our whole mind, soul, heart, body and strength. To spend time before the Most Blessed Sacrament in prayer is a foretaste of Heavenly glories.
 
Our goal in life is to behold the glory of the Beatific Vision of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost for all eternity in the company of Our Lady, Saint Joseph, our Guardian Angels (each of whom beholds the Beatific Vision as he tries to guide us home to Heaven!), our patron saints and all of the members of the Church Triumph, whose ranks we hope and pray will include our dearest and nearest relatives and friends.
 
We must make time for the foretaste of Heavenly glories by means of profound Eucharistic Adoration in this life is we want to enjoy the glories of Heaven itself for all eternity. There are infused graces that are flooded into the souls of those who spend time in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament, those souls who are conscious of the need to make reparation for their sins as they give thanksgiving to God for all of the favors, both spiritual and temporal, they have received and who recognize the need to petition God for the favors we need, both spiritual temporal, starting with an earnest petition each day that we be given the grace to have a holy and sacramentally-provided-for death. 
 
Our Lord stands ready to send us this infusion of graces through the loving hands of His Most Blessed Mother, who is mystically with us when we pray before her Divine Son’s Real Presence. All we need to do is to arrange our lives in such a way as to make time for prayer before Our Eucharistic King and Lord. 
 
We must, of course, be conscious of our need to get to the Sacrament of Penance on a weekly basis in order that our reception of Our Lord’s Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity in Holy Communion will be worthy and fervent. The frequent, devout and worthy reception of Our Lord in Holy Communion gives strength even to those souls who have been steeped in one sin after another, those souls who have refused to surrender to the devil’s attacks upon them over the years: 
 
And then come, and accuse me, saith the Lord: if your sins be as scarlet, they shall be made as white as snow: and if they be red as crimson, they shall be white as wool. If you be willing, and will hearken to me, you shall eat the good things of the land. (Isaias 1: 18-19.) 
 
We must ask Our Lady on this great feast day of Corpus Christi, which, of course, is celebrated as an Octave in those chapels that use the Missal of Saint Pius V before it was “reformed” by the revolutionary efforts of Annibale Bugnini and Ferdinando Antonelli in the 1950s, to help give us more and more graces to recognize the Most Sacred Heart of her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, beats for with great love in the Most Blessed Sacrament. 
 
We must ask Our Lady to help us approach the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart with such fervor and devotion that we will consider it as a great loss if ever there is a day we are unable to get a true offering of Holy Mass and unable to spend at least some time with her Divine Son, Who is the Prisoner of Love in tabernacles today just as He was the Prisoner of her Virginal and Immaculate Womb from the time of His Incarnation to the day of His Nativity.
 
We must also thank Our Lord and His Most Blessed Mother for our true bishops and true priests who make it possible for us to have the Sacraments in this time of apostasy and betrayal, remembering to pray that more young men will have the courage to renounce the world and study to become an alter Christus so that he, acting in persona Christi in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, can make Our Lord present in the Most Blessed Sacrament and to bless us with that Most Blessed Sacrament on great feast days such as this one. 
 
Today, May 30, 2024, is also, quite providentially, the sixty-fifth anniversary of making my First Holy Communion at Saint Aloysius Church, Great Neck, New York. I remember the day well. It was sunny spring Saturday in 1959 (it was also Memorial Day as May 30 was this secular observance's fixed date until around 1971) and we were all filled with such great anticipation before Mass and exileration thereafter. Please pray for my fellow first communicants, living and deceased, as well for the souls of the priests (Monsignor Vincent Baldwin, Father James Collins, Father Robert Mason, Father Christopher Huntington) and the Reverend Sisters of Mercy who prepared us for this day of such wonderful joy.

A blessed Feast of Corpus Christi to you all!
 
What a mystery of love. 
 
Words fail. 

Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament, pray for us.

"Traditional" Pots Calling "Conservative" Kettles Black

This is a commentary about "Archbishop" Carlo Maria Vigano's reaction to Jorge Mario Bergoglio's calling "conservative" "bishops" in the United States of America "suidical" because they have placed themselves in what the Argentine Apostate calls a "dogmatic box." 

Father Vigano, who was ordained in 1968 but who is not a true bishop, criticized how "conservatives" within the conciliar structures selective quote from conciliar documents. Very interesting, especially since Father Vigano conveniently ignores the many ways the man he has praised, Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, defected from the Catholic Faith both before and after becoming the fifth int in the current line of antipopes.

I will move on to other subjects for a week or two as I think, with the exception of one commentary, the last five weeks have spent on conciliar-themed subjects. Enough is enough for the time being.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Revised and Expanded: The "Second" Vatican Council Was the Dirty Work of True Bishops and True Priests

Although I am preparing a new (and relatively short) commentary that cannot be completed at this time, I found one from forty-nine months ago that I think is a useful reminder that it was enemies from within the ranks of the Catholic Church who fomented the conciliar revolution at the "Second" Vatican Council, which did not just come out of nowhere. 

Thus, after having posted New "Norms" With One Principal Purpose: To Disparage Our Lady's Fatima Message, yesterday, Trinity Sunday, I am offering you this revised and slightly expanded commentary for your consideration on the Feast of Saint Bede the Venerable and the Commemoration of Pope Saint John I, the only pope of that name to have been raised to the altars of the Catholic Church. Reflections on each are found in appendices below the text of this commentary.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Bede the Venerable, pray for us.

 

New "Norms" With One Principal Purpose: To Disparage Our Lady's Fatima Message

The new "norms" about private revelations issued recently by Victor Manuel Fernandez, who is certainly a busy little beaver chomping at those last bastions of recognizable Catholicism within the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, have one prinicpal purpose: to disparage, demean, and denigate Our Lady's Fatima Message.

This a long commentary. Then again, those who still access this site know that I do not write in sound bites.

A blessed Trinity Sunday to you all.

Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity, pray for us.

Saint Philip Neri, pray for us.

Pope Saint Eleutherius, pray for us.

De Deo Uno, De Deo Trino (2024)

Today is Trinity Sunday and the Commemorations of the First Sunday after Pentecost, of Saint Philip Neri, and Pope Saint Eleutherius, Feast of Saint John of San Facundo, of the First Sunday after Pentecost, and of Saints Basilides, Cyrinius, Nabor, and Nararius, thus beginning the second half of the liturgical year that began with the First Sunday of Advent.

The mystery of the Most Holy Trinity was revealed to us by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Although there are clear references in the text of the Old Testament to a plurality of Persons in the Divine Godhead ("Let us make man in our own image"), human reason, which can come to the conclusion that God exists, is insufficient to know about the existence of the Most Blessed Trinity. Our Lord Himself, the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity made Man in Our Lady's Virginal and Immaculate Womb, had to reveal this to us. The doctrine of the Most Holy Trinity is rejected by all infidels and misrepresented by most Protestant sects.

To wit, many Protestants, especially in the evangelical and fundamentalist sects, are "baptized" in "the name of the Lord Jesus," not in "The Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost," which is invalid on its face. This means that many hundreds of thousands of Protestants are not even Christians despite their thinking that they are. We must defend the doctrine of the Most Blessed Trinity with our very lives if necessary, having frequent recourse to the making of the Sign of the Cross throughout the day. This is a custom that is held dear by many Spaniards and Latin Americans.

Remember, Jorge Mario Bergoglio did not want to give a "blessing," not that he is capable of giving one as a lay Jesuit revolutionary, that is, when address the crowd on the Capitol Mall in Washington, District of Columbia, on Thursday, September 24, 2015, the Feast of Our Lady of Ransom, for fear of offending "unbelievers." We must be afraid of offending the Most Holy Trinity by means of our sins of commission or, like Senor Jorge himself, sins of omission. 

A blessed Trinity Sunday to you all.

Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity, pray for us.

Saint Philip Neri, pray for us.

Pope Saint Eleutherius, pray for us.

As a “General Rule,” Jorge Mario Bergoglio, is Antichrist’s Best Friend

[Update on Whit Saturday and the Commmeoration of Pope Saint Gregory VII and Pope Saint Urban I: Although it might be possible for complete the commentary upon which I am working now if I stayed up for a few more hours, I think that, having done this three days ago, I am going to continue work on it later today, Saturday, May 25, 2024, so that it can be posted on Trinity Sunday, May 26, 2024, along with my annual reflection on the feast day itself. Thank you for your patience.]

The time stamp on this home page will explain why this introduction will be limited to stating that this new commentary is a detailed (much more than I thought it would be) of Norah O'Donnell's interview with Jorge Mario Bergoglio that was televised on the Columbia Broadcasting System's 60 Minutes program on Pentecost Sunday, May 19, 2024.

Goodnight.

Good morning.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

The Argentine Anti-Apostle’s Biennial Election Interference Campaign Has Begun

Jorge Mario Bergoglio has commenced is biennial election interference campain in the farce that is American electoral politics. 

The next commentary on this site will deal with the Argentine Anti-Apostle's criticism of "conservative" Catholics within the United States of America, but it may not appear until Whit Tuesday.

My own Pentecost Sunday reflection and two of Father Francis X. Weninger's three sermons for Pentecost Sunday have been posted. Please scroll below.

Father Francis Weninger, S.J.: Two Sermons for Pentecost Sunday

The sermons delivered by Father Francis Weninger, S.J., as part of his missionary work here in the United States of America one hundred fifty years ago should always be given prominence whenever possible.

Thus, I hereby present two of Father Weninger's three sermons for Pentecost Sunday. 

A continued blessed Pentecost Sunday to you all!

Pentecost Sunday, May 19, 2024

Today is Pentecost Sunday, the birthday of Holy Mother Church, the upon which the first pope, Saint Peter, who was vivified as the Vivifier Himself, God the Holy Ghost, descended upon him and Our Lady and the other Apostles (and the rest of the disciples) gathered in the Upper Room in Jerusalem as they completed their Novena to God the Holy Ghost ten days after Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's glorious Ascension to His Father's right hand on Ascension Thursday. Saint Peter wasted no time in doing something that is forbidden, at least in a de facto sense, in the counterfeit church of conciliarism: he preached to the Jews about the necessity of their converting to the true Faith.

The missionary work of the Church to seek with urgency the unconditional conversion of all men and all nations to the her maternal bosom, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there is no true social order, brought us glorious missionaries who were willing to embrace many sacrifices, including martyrdom itself, to spread the Faith of the Divine Redeemer, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, so that men and all nations would be able to order themselves rightly according to the Deposit of Faith that He has entrusted exclusively to Holy Mother Church for Its eternal safekeeping and infallible explication and by means of a fervent cooperation with the graces won for us by the shedding of Our Lord's Most Precious Blood and that flow into our hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of all Graces. The work of conversion does not end when one is Baptized or Confirmed.

The work of conversion away from our sinful selves to become more conformed to the Cross of the Divine Redeemer and the merciful designs of His Most Sacred Heart for us is one that is constant. Every beat of our hearts, consecrated as they must be to that same Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, must burn with fire for the love of God as He has revealed Himself to us through His true Church and as we seek to grow in holiness and to make reparation for our sins and those of the whole world. It is useless for us to be converted in the Baptismal font unless we are willing to let God the Holy Ghost help to convert us every day to cooperate more fully with His Seven Gifts and Twelve Fruits. Saint Paul the Apostle explained that the spiritual man, the one who is filled with Sanctifying Grace, cannot be understood by the sensual or worldly man:

For what man knoweth the things of a man, but the spirit of a man that is in him? So the things also that are of God no man knoweth, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of this world, but the Spirit that is of God; that we may know the things that are given us from God. Which things also we speak, not in the learned words of human wisdom; but in the doctrine of the Spirit, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the sensual man perceiveth not these things that are of the Spirit of God; for it is foolishness to him, and he cannot understand, because it is spiritually examined. But the spiritual man judgeth all things; and he himself is judged of no man. (2 Cor. 2: 11-15)

We must keep this in mind when our relatives and friends and associates do not understand how we can refuse to keep our silence when a putative "pontiff" calls a mosque as a "jewel" or as a "sacred" place or as he prays as a Jew without mentioning the Holy Name of the Divine Redeemer (doing voluntarily what the leaders of Sanhedrin tried to force the Apostles to do, that is, to mention the "name of that man no more") and has he praises the nonexistent ability of false religions to help build the "better world."

We cannot care about what others think of us. We must say and do only those things that are pleasing God, never fearing to raise our voices to defend His greater honor and glory and majesty when these are offended by one claiming to speak for the Catholic Church on earth. The Mystical Bride of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Holy Mother Church, is as spotless and as immaculate as Our Blessed Mother herself.

The Catholic Church did not give us "hootenanny" liturgies before the aftermath of the "Second" Vatican Council. She did not give us "inter-religious dialogue" and "inter-religious" prayer services. She gave us liturgies that came from God the Holy Ghost, not travesties that reaffirm people in the spirit of the world.

The Catholic Church can only give us clarity of doctrine, not ambiguity and complexity that took one "clarification" after another to attempt to make "clear." Holy Mother Church has always mirrored Our Blessed Mother's hatred of heresy and error, which was part of the meditation written by the late Father Frederick Faber on the Sixth Dolor of Our Lady:

In the judgment of the world, and of worldly Christians, this hatred of heresy is exaggerated, bitter, contrary to moderation, indiscreet, unreasonable, aiming at too much, bigoted, intolerant, narrow, stupid, and immoral. What can we say to defend it? Nothing which they can understand. We had, therefore, better hold our peace. If we understand God, and He understands us, it is not so very hard to go through life suspected, misunderstood and unpopular. The mild self-opinionatedness of the gentle, undiscerning good will also take the world's view and condemn us; for there is a meek-loving positiveness about timid goodness which is far from God, and the instincts of whose charity is more toward those who are less for God, while its timidity is searing enough for harsh judgment. There are conversions where three-quarters of the heart stop outside the Church and only a quarter enters, and heresy can only be hated by an undivided heart. But if it is hard, it has to be borne. A man can hardly have the full use of his senses who is bent on proving to the world, God's enemy, that a thorough-going Catholic hatred of heresy is a right frame of mind. We might as well force a blind man to judge a question of color. Divine love inspheres in us a different circle of life, motive, and principle, which is not only not that of the world, but in direct enmity with it. From a worldly point of view, the craters in the moon are more explicable things than we Christians with our supernatural instinct. 

We must therefore permit God the Holy Ghost to come into our souls with His bright burning flames at every moment of our lives so that we will filled with love of God and hatred of our own sins as we seek to cooperate with the graces He sends us through the loving hands of His Spouse, Our Lady, making sure to honor His Spouse as we pray as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit. May this be our prayer this day and every day our own lives:

Come, Holy Ghost, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and enkindle in them the fire of Thy love.

V. Send forth Thy Spirit and they shall be created.

R. And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.

Let us pray. O God, Who didst instruct the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Ghost, grant us in the same Spirit to be truly wise, and ever to rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

A blessed Pentecost Sunday and Octave to you all!

Our Lady of the Cenacle, pray for us.

On the Vigil of Pentecost (2024)

Jorge Mario Bergoglio has been making a lot noise lately, and I am doing my best to try summarize it all in my next original commentary.

For the moment, however, all I can do now is offer this slightly revised reflection for the Vigil of Penecost, which is a day of fast for those between the ages of twenty-one and fifty-nine and a day of partial abstinence for those seven years of age or older. This does not mean that those of us over the age of fifty-nine should not fast if able to do so, only that it is not morally obligatory to fast. We should keep in mind that God is most pleased with the souls who give Him more than the minimum required by Church law. We must give Him our all as the consecrated slaves of His Co-Equal, Co-Eternal Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. 

Our Lady of the Cenacle, pray for us.
