Republished: Make Haste Today, Christmas Eve, The Lord Is Nigh

Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is nigh today. He comes to us in Midnight in piercing cold in Bethlehem.

Have we prepared to "make haste," that is, to flee from the world and its false attractions and promises and "saviours" to welcome Him in our hearts and souls by means of Holy Communion?

Have we asked His Most Blessed Mother, Who brought Him forth miraculously in the cave when there was no room for Him in the inn, to help us to make room for Him in the "inns" of our hearts and souls.

Have we asked the Patron of the Universal Church and the Protector of the Faithful, Good Saint Joseph, to protect and to guide us as we seek out His Divine foster-Son as He is born for us on Altars of Sacrifice in the Catholic catacombs?

Are we prepared to celebrate this Christmas with joy and with thanksgiving as the Word Who was made Flesh in Our Lady's Virginal and Immaculate Womb by the power of God the Holy Ghost beckons us to adore Him in His Real Presence day in and day out?

Make haste, the Lord is nigh. Midnight is coming.

Are we ready?

Make haste.

Prepare well.

Our Saviour is to be born for us!

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, pray for us.

(As noted two days ago, work on several new articles proceeds. However, no new article will be posted until the Feast of Saint Stephen, December 27, 2017.)

Republished: Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini: A Missionary to the Americas

This is a very brief republished reflection on the heroic missionary work of the saint whose feast we celebrate today, Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, a naturalized citizen of the United States who is the first and thus far only citizen of this country to be canonized by a true and legitimate Successor of Saint Peter.

Let me try to put it to you this way: Mother Cabrini’s insistence on the highest standards of personal modesty and her concern about Italian immigrants being converted by the materialistic and decadent ways of Protestant and Judeo-Masonic American culture, to say nothing of her love of mortifications and sufferings, would have earned her an “apostolic visitator” sent by Jorge Mario Bergoglio to “reform” her “Pelagian” ways if she lived at this time of apostasy and betrayal.

Work continues on several new articles.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

On the Feast of Saint Thomas the Apostles: Dominus Meus et Deus Meus

Today is the Feast of Saint Thomas the Apostle.

Saint Thomas did not believe that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ had risen from the dead on Easter Sunday. Our Lord told the doubting Apostle to press his finger into His nail marks and to press his hand into His wounded side. Saint Thomas believed.

Along with the other Apostles, including the one who replaced Judas Iscariot, Saint Matthias, Saint Thomas became a bold proclaimer of the Catholic Faith, going to India, where he sacrificed his life for the Holy Faith. Saint Thomas the Apostle touched the flesh of the Risen Saviour with his own hands. He then went on to touch the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of that same Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ with his own priestly hands as he uttered the words at Holy Mass that made the Messias incarnate under the appearances of bread and wine.

The very words Saint Thomas uttered after he had touched Our Lord on Low Sunday, Dominus meus et Deus meus, are what we pray every time a true priest utters these words at Holy Mass: "Hoc Est Enim Corpus Meum."

As we prepare the celebration of Christmas Day four days from now, we should ask Saint Thomas to help us reverence Our Lord in His Real Presence with greater fervor as we grow stronger in the Faith with every passing day, consecrated as we are to Our Lord through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Another long article is being written. Its completion, however, may have to wait until after Christmas Day, although I should have most of Saturday and Sunday to make a bit more headway on it. Thank you for your patience.

Additionally, I am going to rework material from a 2002 article in the printed pages of Christ or Chaos about the late Bernard "Cardinal" Law, who died on Tuesday, December 19, 2017, at the age of eighty-five. This enabler and protector of reprobates was made the archpriest of the Basilica of Saint Mary Major by none other than "Saint John Paul II." This poor man, an arch-ecumenist and supporter of "inclusive language" in the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service, lived in grand style during his nearly fourteen years in Rome. My "sendoff" will attest to the fact that the the lawless Law was so "nuanced" that he made it possible for millions of Catholics in the conciliar structures to quit the practice of what they thought was the Catholic Faith, and he was held in high esteem by Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II and Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Jerusalem Belongs to Christ the King and His True Church, part three

Although a little later in the day than I thought was going to be the case, the process of reviewing, revising and formatting this long commentary took longer than expected.
The first part of this commentary covers the coup d’etat that is being attempted against President Donald John Trump. The second part of this commentary reminds readers once again to “sober up” as Donald John Trump’s decision to move the American embassy in the Zionist State of Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is a reminder that this poor, egotistical and uninformed naturalist is simply a pawn of Judeo-Masonry. 
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Lucy of Syracuse: An Immovable Foe of Religious Liberty

The saint whose feast we celebrate today, Saint Lucy, resisted all efforts made by the civil authorities to induce her to worship the idols when a suitor, who was angered by her rejection of him after she had given away her riches to the poor, betrayed her as Christian to the pagan officials of the Roman Empire in Syracuse, Sicily at the beginning of the Fourth Century A.D., in the year 304 A.D.

Saint Lucy could have saved her life if only she worshiped the idols. Unlike the conciliar "pontiffs," men who have esteemed the symbols of various and sundry false religions, with their own consecrated hands, Saint Lucy refused to do so and was immovable when taken to a house of sin. She refused even to look upon the vice that was before her.

May this immovable foe of religious liberty help us to see more clearly with the eyes of our immortal souls that the Catholic Church cannot be in the least responsible for the abominations and blasphemies and sacrileges and defections from the Faith perpetrated by the counterfeit church of conciliarism.

May Saint Lucy, a model of purity and gentleness and grace and courage, help us to see so clearly that we flee to the catacombs where the Faith is protected without any concessions to conciliarism.

A blessed Feast of Saint Lucy to all who are named after this great witness to the Faith, especially my dear wife, who took Saint Lucy as her patron at Baptism, and our dear daughter, Lucy Mary Therese Norma, who has, of course, a special devotion to the virgin and martyr from Syracuse, Sicily.

I ask your prayers also for the repose of the soul of the late Father Salvatore V. Franco, who died on this day fifteen years ago now. Father Franco, who suffered from serious heart problems but died of a form of leukemia that he only found out he had weeks before he died, was good enough to offer us refuge in his kitchen in Westbury, Long Island, New York, in April of 2002 until November of 2002 as he offered the Immemorial Mass of Tradition for us each weekday.

Although I had long before abandoned the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service on Sundays as I moved in "indult" circles, we made the decision to abandon all putative "offerings" of this abominable travesty during the week when Father Franco took ill and before he died. Father Franco, who was ordained as a priest of the Diocese of Brooklyn in June of 1953, had a heart attack in 1963 at the age of thirty-seven, an act of God's Divine Mercy that kept him from being immersed in parish life as the conciliar revolution proceeded apace. Father Franco kept active, however, offering Mass and helping souls. We will be forever grateful to him for providing us with the refuge that he did in the months after Lucy's birth. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen. We miss you, Father!

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Lucy, pray for us.

Four Hundred Eighty-Seven Years Later: The Americas Still Belong to Our Lady

Two articles on Our Lady of Guadalupe are being republished today. Each has been slightly revised and, of course. In addition to this article, there is also "We Must Be Made As Simple and Trusting" that was published in four parts back in 2010.

A fuller description of today’s feast is found in the introduction to “We Must Be Made as Simple and Trusting” below, which also includes an appeal necessitated by a piece of mail we received yesterday on the Feast of Pope Saint Damasus I.

Finally, please pray for my younger brother (and only sibling), who turns sixty-four years of age today. Our late mother died on March 18, 1982, and our father died on September 5 1992. The years have certainly passed quickly.

Viva Cristo Rey!

Viva La Virgen de Guadalupe!

A blessed Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe to you all!

Revised: On the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe: May We Made As Simple and Trusting

Our Blessed Mother gave us two great miracles on this day four hundred eighty-six years ago.

Acceding to the demand of Apostolic Administrator [later Archbishop] Fray Juan de Zumarraga, O.F.M., the Mother of God saw to it that Castilian roses grew atop Tepeyac Hill so that her little "Juanito," Juan Diego, a fifty-five year-old widower to whom she had first appeared on December 9, 1531, could provide proof that it was she who had made the request of Fray de Zumarraga to build a shrine in her honor on the hill where she appeared. 

The administrator's guards, who had treated Juan Diego with such cruelty and even racism, spied those roses and tried to grab them out of Juan's tilma as he waited to see Fray de Zumarraga. The roses, quite miraculously, disappeared every time the guards sought to snatch them away from Juan Diego. Those Castilian roses were presented by Juan Diego to Fray Juan de Zumarraga, who knelt before the Indian convert to the Faith as he gazed upon the miraculous image that Juanito did not know was there: the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, who was clearly expecting the Baby Jesus. Remember, this was Advent in the year 1531, just forty-nine years after Christopher Columbus first set foot on the Island of San Salvador to implant the Cross of the Divine Redeemer in this hemisphere for the first time since Saint Brendan the Navigator had done so in the First Millennium.

Our Lady's miraculous image showing her expecting the Baby Jesus is quite symbolic of the expectant desire she had then—and has now—for the conversion of the peoples of the Americas to the true Faith, that each person and each nation be born anew as they submit themselves to Christ the King through His Catholic Church. Over nine million indigenous people converted to the true Faith within a short time following her apparition to Juan Diego on this day 486 years ago, almost person for person the number of people lost to the Faith as a result of the Protestant Revolt in Europe. It was almost as though God was saying to those who left, “Fine. I will have My Mother get new souls to populate Holy Mother Church and hence Heaven itself.”

The Americas were indeed converted to Catholicism, which is why the devil had to attack the Faith in Latin America with such ferocity by means of the Masonic revolutionaries who were supported in both philosophical and monetary terms by the lodges in the nascent Untied States of America. Great crimes were committed against Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and His Most Blessed Mother as a result. These crimes continue to this day, which is, of course, one of the reasons that Saint Michael the Archangel appeared with Our Lady as she spoke to Juan Diego. Our Lady has crushed the head of the serpent with her heel and Saint Michael the Archangel is our helper to crush him in our own lives and in the Americas where he reigns, albeit temporarily, in civil government and in popular culture.

May we rely upon the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Empress and Patroness of the Americas, to help us to be courageous enough to plant seeds for the conversion of the Americas, including the United States of America, to the Social Reign of Christ the King as It must be exercised by the Catholic Church.

Perhaps an extra Rosary today on this glorious feast day will help us to be more faithful and more courageous in our promotion of the Social Reign of Christ the King and Mary our Immaculate Queen. Viva Cristo Rey!

Yes, I am making progress on part three of “Jerusalem Belongs to Christ the King and His True Church.” Work on the commentary consumed all of Sunday afternoon and evening and par tof Monday evening. However, it was necessary to be away from the computer for about six hours on Monday afternoon and evening, at which point only a bit more work was able to be one. As there are many qualifications that need to be made, I am not going to rush the commentary to completion, although I certainly do hope to make more headway on it today, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, and, if necessary, tomorrow, the Feast of Saint Lucy. Thank youyou’re your patience.

Finally, I have gotten hit with my part of the $13,000 that the recent medical tests (echo-cardiogram, nuclear stress test, office visits; my part of the heart catheterization had to be paid upfront on November 16, 2017, and a good friend of ours made that possible). As I do not have the five hundred dollars necessary to pay the bill, it is necessary to ask the “vast” readership of this site to consider an early Christmas gift in the form of a non-tax-deductible financial gift. Thank you for your consideration.

Viva Cristo Rey!

Viva La Virgen de Guadalupe!

A blessed Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe to you all.

Jorge Is Only Bringing the Work of Destruction Begun by Roncalli to Its Logical Conclusions

Although the details are sketchy, it appears that a conciliar “cardinal,” Leonardo Sandri, the prefect of the conciliar Congregation for the Oriental Rites, recently yelled at the lay Jesuit revolutionary from Argentina, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who is busy appointing lavender-colored presbyters as “bishops” in his own native land an as the “archbishop” of Paris, France, saying something to the effect that “We elect you to make reforms, not to destroy everything.”

The Argentine Apostate/Dictator “Pope,” however, is only bring conciliarism’s work of destruction to its logical conclusions.

Work continues on “Jerusalem Belongs to Christ the King and His True Church, part three.” It is my hope to have it ready for posting by Monday, December 11, 2017, the Feast of Pope Saint Melchiades. I will write one more commentary before spending most of the coming week finalizing work on several anthologies of these articles.

Our Lady of Loreto, pray for us.

Saints Joachim and Anne, pray for us.

Pope Saint Damasus, pray for us.

Revised: The Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary: At the Heart of the Catholic Faith

I AM THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION." Those words, uttered by the Mother of God herself to Saint Bernadette Soubirous in the Grotto of Massabielle near Lourdes, France, on March 25, 1858, was a Heavenly ratification of the solemn, infallible proclamation of the doctrine of her Immaculate Conception by Pope Pius IX on December 8, 1854, in the Bull Ineffabilis Deus.


Our Lady was conceived in the womb of her holy mother, Good Saint Anne, without any stain of Original or Actual Sin in anticipation of the merits that would be won by her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, on the wood of the Holy Cross. She, the Singular Vessel of Devotion, had the perfect integrity of Adam and Eve before their Fall from Grace in the Garden of Eden.

It is important, therefore, to get the doctrine of Original Sin right in order to understand the great miracle worked by God in the soul of the fairest flower of our race, Our Lady, from the very first moment of her Immaculate Conception. To get anything about the doctrine of Original Sin wrong leads to the efforts on the part of Modernists to deconstruct the doctrinal definitions of Original Sin and of the Immaculate Conception.

Alas, the Catholic Church, our Holy Mother on earth, our Mater and Magister, is as spotless as the Immaculate Blessed Virgin Mary. Holy Mother Church does not deconstruct infallible dogmatic definitions. Holy Mother Church cannot do so, which is why we need to pray to Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces and our Immaculate Queen, to help us to make no concessions to the counterfeit church of conciliarism that has promulgated an abominable "liturgy" and whose officials feel feel to "reinterpret" dogmatic truths according to Modernist propositions that have been condemned by the authority of our spotless Mother on earth, Holy Mother Church.

Mindful of the effects of our own sins on our immortal souls and of our need to make reparation for them to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through Our Lady's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, may we make the Secret prayer for today's Holy Mass our own:

"Receive the saving Victim we offer to Thee, O Lord, on the solemn feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary: and grant that, as we confess that by Thy prevenient grace she was kept free from every stain of sin; so, by her intercession, we may be delivered from all our offenses. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God."

A blessed Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary to you all! 

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

The release of The Dictator "Pope" is causing quite a stir. With this in mind, therefore, I want to remind the readers of this site of two articles that appeared on this site in 2013.

The first is Francis, The Talking Apostate, which was published on March 14, 2013, and contained a bit of information about Jorge's thuggish ways in Buenos Aires.

The second, Francis: The Latest In A Long Line Of Ecclesiastical Tyrants, was pubished on August 19, 2013.

Although I will have my own commentary on the new book soon enough, I do want to complete part three of "Jerusalem Belongs to Christ the King and His True Church," which should be poste don the First Sunday of Advent.

A blessed Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary to you all.

Jorge's Patron "Saint": Judas Iscariot

Although there was a good analysis on Novus Ordo Wire last month about Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s speculating that Judas Iscariot was saved, there are a few points on the subject that I have desired to make but have not had any time to do so until now.

As the hour is late and much has been happening in the past week, suffice it to say for the moment that there is now a need to write part three of “Jerusalem Belongs to Christ the King and His True Church” in light of today’s expected announcement by the Trump administration to move the embassy of the United States of America in the Zionist State of Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem over the course of time.

For the moment, therefore, it might be good for those readers who are still accessing this site to re-read  and .

Saint Nicholas of Myra, pray for us.
