Pope Saint Pius X: Modernism's Eternal Foe, Our Eternal Friend and Spiritual Father

Unlike his immediate predecessor, Pope Leo XIII, and each of his three successors (Popes Benedict XV, Pius XI, and Pius XII), the former Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto was not in the diplomatic service of the Holy See at any time during the nearly forty-five years of his priesthood prior to his rather remarkable election as the Successor of Saint Peter on August 4, 1903. He was not prone to accept the word of diplomats, and he did not suffer lies and misrepresentations easily.

The farm boy from Riese, Italy, who served as a pastor of souls in a rough-and-tumble Italian cow town, Tombolo, and then in Salzano before becoming Bishop of Mantua and the Cardinal Patriarch of Venice, was always close to Our Lady. This tender devotion to Our Lady, which he learned from his saintly mother, helped him to keep close to the sheep even when he was the Vicar of Christ on earth.

Thanks to the sign given him by the life and death of Little Nellie of Holy God, Pope Saint Pius X was the advocate of early First Communion (and early Confirmation) and of frequent Communions. It is no accident at all that the now retired Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI made no reference to the centenary of Pascendi Dominci Gregis on September 8, 2007. Ratzinger/Benedict made absolutely no reference on August 15, 2010, to the centenary of Pope Saint Pius X's Notre Charge Apostolique, which was a ringing condemnation of the false philosophy of the Sillon that is of the essence of conciliarism. He made no reference to the one hundredth anniversary of The Oath Against Modernism on September 1, 1910 (see Witness Against Benedict XVI: The Oath Against Modernism).

How could he?

He stands condemned by the very words in these documents issued by Pope Saint Pius X.

So does the man who ignored the one hundredth anniversary of Papa Sarto's death, Jorge Mario Bergolio, back on August 20, 2014.

The contrast between the Catholicism of Pope Saint Pius X, a defender of the Social Reign of Christ the King and the confessional Catholic civil state, and the conciliarism of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who has denounced "restorationists" as "Pelagian" and "hard-headed" Pharisees while defending "healthy laicism" and "religious liberty" and the "separation of Church and State, could not be more clear.

Here is the Collect for today's feast in the Immemorial Mass of Tradition:

"O God, who for the defense of the Catholic Faith and the restoration of all things in Christ didst fill Saint Pius, Supreme Pontiff, with heavenly wisdom and apostolic courage: grant in Thy loving kindness that by following his teachings and examples we may attain eternal rewards. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, forever and ever. Amen."

Pope Saint Pius X opposed Modernism.

So must we as we refuse any "communion" at all with conciliarism or its false shepherds who are at war with the Catholic Faith.

Part five of my current series is taking longer to complete. This is partly a function of the fact that the first four parts pretty much wiped me out in the past week. However, I am working on part five, which will be the last installment as, barring some unexpected development, there is little more to add at this time.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Pope Saint Pius X, pray for us!

Another Front in the Conciliar War, part four

This installment of a series that I did not expect to write as late as a week ago today focuses on the effort of the President of Ave Maria University, Jim Towey, to defend the man he considers to be “Pope Francis” and upon the Argentine Apostate’s declaration to Gerhard Ludwig Muller that he, Jorge, could do anything he wants without giving any reason. Bergoglio believes this not only about administrative matters but about all that pertains to Faith and Morals and provides us with yet another corollary proof that he hath not the Catholic Faith and had long ago expelled himself from the bosom of Holy Mother Church.

Part five will be posted in two days, if not sooner.

Our Lady of Consolation, pray for us.

Another Front in the Conciliar Civil War, part three

[Morning update on Saturday, September 1, 2018, the Feast of Our Lady of Consolation (not observed universally) and the Commemoration of Saint Giles: Part four of my current series is very near its completion. As it was not prudent to proceed with the additional work on the commentary much after Midnight,  readers are advised to check back around 4:00 p.m. today. Work on part five will then commence. 

[Additionally, I must confess that my eyes have deceived me for over five years now by my consistent failure to spell Father Carlo Maria Vigano's name properly. A reader brought the error to my attention, and I have corrected the spelling of the priest's name in each of the three parts of this series published thus far. I apologize for the error. As one whose name has been consistently misspelled by others as "Drolesky" rather than Droleskey, I should have caught the error when I made it the first time in 2013. I apologize. Thank you.]

Conciliarism’s civil war is being fought in earnest now.

This is but a brief follow-up to the commentary published about eight and one-half hours ago.

Although I still believe that Jorge Mario Bergoglio will not be forced out of the antipapal seat he currently fills, things are getting really interesting now.

One thing is for sure: conciliarism is not Catholicism no matter who is sitting in the antipapal chair.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Rose of Lima, pray for us.

Saints Felix and Adauctus, pray for us.

Saint Rose of Lima, T.O.P., Shows Us the Difference Between Heaven and Hell

This is a brief and very sightly revised version of my reflection on the life of Saint Rose of Lima, a member of the Third Order of Penance of the Order of Preachers of Saint Dominic de Guzman.

Among many other works in her devout life of prayer and austere penances, Saint Rose, who lived among a cluster of saints in Lima, Peru, exhorted the people of Lima to gather in their churches and pray their Rosaries to turn back a pending invasion of their city by a fleet of those virulent anti-Catholics, the Dutch Calvinists. Those hideous people with their diabolical beliefs that have nothing at all to do with Christianity turned back as a result of the Rosaries that were prayed to repel them in their designs to invade Lima and to sack Catholic churches and to desecrated the Most Blessed Sacrament images of the Mother of God.

May we pray to Saint Rose of Lima so that we will remain faithful to the daily recitation of Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary as the powerful weapon, after Holy Mass itself, to turn back the enemies of Christ the King in the world and in the counterfeit church of conciliarism.

The next original article on this site should be published in about ten minutes, Another original article was published late yesteday afternoon. Please scroll below.

Another Front in the Conciliar Civil War, part two

As I noted two days ago, Jorge Mario Bergoglio is not going anywhere. Oh, various conciliar “bishops” are calling an investigation of his covering-up for Theodore Edgar McCarrick. However, Bergoglio is already showing his trademarked defiance.

This commentary focuses on some of the reactions to “Archbishop” Carlo Maria Vigano’s courageous statement that came that was written on August 25, 2018, and reminds readers that conciliarism is not and can never be Catholicism.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pay for us.

Saint John the Baptist, pray for us.

Saint John the Baptist: Beheaded by Those Who Enjoy Bergoglio's Favor Today

Today is the Feast of the Beheading of Saint John the Baptist and the Commemoration of Saint Sabina. I am republishing a reflection on this feast that was substantially enlarged and revised last year with a few new revisions.  

The next original article on this site is being written. It is follow-up to the article posted on Monday. There is more work to do on it that would require me to stay up another three or four hours. However,  I should be able to post it by later after recording a video presentation on the subject. 

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.

Saint John the Baptist, pray for us.

Saint Sabina, pray for us.

Another Front in the Conciliar Civil War, part one

The former conciliar “papal” nuncio to the United States of America, “Archbishop” Carlo Maria Vigano, has written a little letter about Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his knowledge of Theodore Edgar McCarrick’s perversity. Perhaps you have heard about it?

This is but a small way of offering a bit of commentary on the matter, although I will give yo a spoiler alert: I do not believe that Bergoglio is going anywhere (other than to eternal perdition if he does not abjure his errors and convert to the Catholic Faith before he dies, that is) as he is so arrogant, so sanctimonious and so defiant of all that is true and good that he is simply going to use his screeds at the Casa Santa Marta to vent his rage at Vigano while relying upon the likes of Blase Cupich and Donald Wuerl to provide him with support and comfort.

Remember this, however: the conciliar church is not of God. Do not be fooled by the war between the Girondist/Menshevik conciliar revolutionaries and the Jacobin/Bolshevik conciliar revolutionaries.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.

Saint Joseph Calasanctius, pray for us.

Saint Louis IX, King of France: Christ the King's Humble Exemplar and Viceroy

Today  is the Feast of Saint Louis IX, King of France, that great exemplar of the Social Reign of Christ the King. Saint Louis was taught by his holy mother, Blessed Blanche of Castile, to prefer death rather to commit a deliberate Mortal Sin. He heard two Masses a day and was a member of the Third Order of Saint Francis, whose patron saint he remains to this day.

Saint Louis strove to rule according to the Mind of Christ the King as He had deposited It exclusively in the Catholic Church, recognizing that he, Louis IX, would have to answer to Christ the King at the moment of his own Particular Judgment for how he ruled his subjects. His letter to his son Philip is a succinct summary of the principles of Catholic Social Teaching. It is a model for how everyone in public life should conduct himself in order to please Christ the King as the devoted client of Our Lady, she who is our Immaculate Queen.

As we had some difficulties with a different neighbor in the past few days who asked us to return a goat that they had given us without any strings or preconditions nearly three years ago, the original article that I had planned to post at this time has been delayed. Our most recent set of "difficulties" have been resolved by choosing not to fight the unjust demand by getting a young goat to replace the one that had been given. We live in a world of rank emotionalism, and no amount of reasoning is going to work with people who have the emotional maturity of toddlers as they get carried away with sentimentality without having said a word or given any indication of their change-of-heart after all this time. Oh well, souls are expensive and I, for one have many sins for which to make reparation. Just another day in rural America! 

Vivat Christus Rex!

Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Louis IX, pray for us.

Our Remedy for the Ills of a Sick World: The Immaculate Heart of Mary

[I had formatted this article for republication yesterday morning and had reached the point of pressing the button to post it.  To my complete and utter horror, though I found this afternoon, Thursday, August 23, 2018, the Feast of Saint Philip Benizi and the Commemoation of the Vigil of Saint Bartholomew, that it got lost in cyberspace. It vanished. It went poof! Thus, as August is the month of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I am hereby publishng my reflection for yesterday's feast day. I hope to have the next original article competed by tomorrow morning. Thank you.]

Yesterday was the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, to which the month of August is devoted, that heart that was pierced with Seven Swords of Sorrow during the Life of her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus was formed out of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. These twin hearts of matchless love suffered as one and they beat as one while on earth and they have beat as one in Heaven since Our Lady was Assumed into Heaven body and soul after her death.

Our Lady's Immaculate Heart was unstained by Original Sin or Actual Sins. The Immaculate Heart of the Mother of God, therefore, was capable of a purity of love of God and of her fellow men that is almost indescribable. Our Lady's Most Pure, Most Holy Heart despises the sins that caused her Divine Son to suffer in His Sacred Humanity during His Passion and Death but at the same time is full of a perfect and completely pure maternal compassion for erring sinners such as you and me.

Our Lord, showing us His infinite compassion for us erring sinners, has sent us His Most Blessed Mother to provide us with her maternal assistance to get home to Heaven as members of His true Church founded upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope.

We have been given the Rosary, the Brown Scapular of Mount Carmel, the Miraculous Medal, and the Green Scapular through her loving hands, through which flow the graces won for us by the shedding of Our Lord's Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross.

Her apparition to Juan Diego and the miraculous image of herself she left on his tilma helped to convert millions of Indians to the true Faith in the Americas.

Our Lady ratified Pope Pius IX's solemn proclamation of her Immaculate Conception by proclaiming herself to Saint Bernadette Soubirous to be the Immaculate Conception on March 25, 1858. And Our Lady's appearance in the Cova da Iria from May 13, 1917, to October 13, 1917, gave us Heaven's Peace Plan, one that runs through her Immaculate Heart.

We must endeavor at all times to fulfill, as far as we are able in this time of apostasy and betrayal, Our Lady's Fatima Message in our own lives, especially by praying as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit and by living penitentially as the consecrated slaves of her Divine Son through her own Immaculate Heart.

The era of apostasy and betrayal will end when the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is made manifest. We can play our roles, small though they may be, in helping to bring about this triumph.

What are we waiting for?

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now, and at the hour of our death.

Saints Timothy, Hippolytus, and Symphorian, pray for us.
