On the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary (2021)

Today is the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary, always the humble handmaid of the Lord who humbled herself this day, the last day of Christmastide, which ends after Holy Mass today, by submitting to the rituals of the law although she was not in need of such a ritualistic purification because of her Perpetual Virginity.

This is the day that Our Lady presented her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, in the same Temple where He would be found twelve years later answering questions of the rabbis, the same Temple whose curtain would be torn in two from top to bottom as He breathed His last on the wood of the Holy Cross to redeem us, thereby signifying the permanent end of the Old Covenant and the supersession of Judaism by Catholicism as the true religion. The aged Simeon, who waited patiently every day in the Temple for the fulfillment of the promise that God had made to him, that he would not die before his eyes had seen and his arms had beheld the Messiah, sent the first Sword of Sorrow plunging through Our Lady's Sorrowful and and Immaculate Heart when he prophesied that the Child he beheld would be destined for the rise and for the fall of man, a sign to be opposed, a Sign of Contradiction. We must never fear to be signs of contradiction in our own lives in imitation of the THE Sign of Contradiction, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, as He hung on the wood of the Holy Cross to redeem us as he was mocked and reviled by the very people from whose stock He had taken His Sacred Humanity.

We must be willing to suffer all manner of calumny and humiliation for the many times that we have preferred human respect to fidelity to Our Lord, for the many times we have refused to call upon Our Lady's maternal intercession, for the many times we have refused to "take sides," especially in our day by refusing to reject conciliarism and its ravenous wolves once and for all.

Although I am working on part ten of "Sin: More Deadly Than the Coronavirus," I suppose that Senor Jorge's "international day of Judeo-Masonic naturalism in advancement of the One World Ecumenical Religion, which is but an obsequious servant of the One World Government" will require some attention. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us!

On Septuagesima Sunday (2021)

Today is Septuagesima Sunday. 

Lent begins in but seventeen days.

Easter is exactly nine weeks way.

It is time to start our preparations for Lent, time to start thinking about the penances we are going to undertake starting on Ash Wednesday in order to make reparation for our sins and those of the whole world as we prepare to enter deep into the mysteries of the Paschal Triduum of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's Passion, Death, and Resurrection on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday. The purple vestments representing a penitential season of Holy Mother Church make their reappearance today to remind us that we must be deadly serious about the business of making the best Lent of our lives as we do not know whether this Lent will be our last one on the face of this earth--or whether we will even live to see the end of this particular Lent! Let us use this time well as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, praying as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit.

"Sin: More Deadly Than the Coronavirus, part ten," may take up to a week to complete. Thank you for your patience.

Our Lady of Dolors, pray for us.

Republished: Saint John Bosco: Zealous for Souls Under the Very End

Today, January 31, 2021, is Seputagesima Sunday and the commemorated feast of the great Saint John Bosco, to whom we are very devoted. This is a revised reflection on an extraordinary priest who had a zeal for the salvation of souls in his youth, a zeal that would last until he died on this date in 1888, one hundred twenty-eight years ago.

Saint John Bosco stands a rebuke to everything that manner in which the conciliar revolutionaries refuse to seek converts to what they think is the Catholic Church and the manner in which they reaffirm unrepentant sinners in lives that could lead them to Hell for all eternity if they do not go to Confession and amend their lives. This brief reflection, written about nine years ago now, is an effort to capture the spirit of this magnificent teacher of the young, mystic and zealous apostle of souls.

It may take up  to seven days for the completion of "Sin: More Deadly Than the Coronavirus, part ten." I thank you in advance for your patience.

Jorge and Joe: A Jacobin/Bolshevik Love Story

A week in the making, this commentary's title does not do justice to the depth of issues explored therein.

However, the hour is late and I need to arise in about five hours after this commentary in posted.

Saint Francis de Sales: Apostle of Charity and Zealous Foe of Calvinism

Today, Friday, January 29, 2021, is the Feast of Saint Francis de Sales.

I am hereby republishing a brief and woefully indequate account of the Apostle of Charity and zealous foe of Calvinism. 

A new commentary, one upon I have been working for the past week, will be published within fifteen minutes of this republished reflection. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Revised and Expanded: From Saul of Tarsus to Saint Paul the Apostle

A revised and expanded reflection on the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul the Apostle is offered to the readership of this site today, Monday, January 25, 2021.

Much headway was made on the next original article for this site, which as much with Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his counterfeit church of conciliarism as it does with the new administration of (cough, cough, gag, gag) President Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., and Vice President Kamala Harris and its statist, anti-life, anti-family agenda of evil. Although I am still aiming to complete the commentary later today for posting tomorrow, Tuesday, January 26, 2021, the Feast of Saint Polycarp, I may not be able to have the commentary posted until Wednesday, January 27, 2021, the Feast of Saint John Chrysostom, and sixty-ninth anniversary of my baptism at the hands of the late Father John Dushan at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Queens Village, New York (I was, for reasons never fully explained to me by my late parents, a pagan baby for two months, three days after my birth on November 24, 1951.)

Thank you for your patience.

In the Face of the Daily Slaughter of the Innocent Preborn

This is a revised commentary about the horrific decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States of America in the cases of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, January 22, 1973. 

The next original commentary will deal several matters pertaining to the supposedly "Catholic" president of the United States of America, Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., and his bold, anti-life agenda that is being indemnified by another supposed "Catholic," an Argentine apostate named Jorge Mario Bergoglio, even though some of his false religious sect's false bishops in this country desired to issue a statement on January 20, 2021, the Feast of Sains Fabian and Sebastian, to express their opposition to the new tin-horn dictator's support for the unrestricted chemical and surgical execution of the innocent preborn. 

As the commentary requires careful distincions and qualifications, I ask readers to understand that the completed product may not appear until Tuesday, January 26, 2021, the Feast of Saint Polycarp.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Raymond of Pennafort, O.P., pray for us.

From August 16, 2012: Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., Demagogue Update

This will be the last of the five republished and re-formatted commentaries about a career-long demagogue, Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., who dares to call for "civility" when he has been one of the must uncivil, crude and unoriginal demagogues of the past fifty yaers and who, it should be noted, was part of the cabal to place obstacles in the path of his predecessor. It was, if you will recall, Biden who suggested using the unenforceable and unconstitutional Logan Act as a basis for investigating then President Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro's hated enemy, Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, to prevent the latter from serving as President-elect Donald John Trump's national security adviser.

Civility?

No one who supports the chemical and/or surgical execution of innocent human beings can pronounce on what it is to be "civil."

As noted below, the next original commentary will follow in a few days.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Fabian and Sebastian, pray for us.

From May 9, 2012: Abiding Biden and His "Counsel"

This is yet another of my republished and re-formatted commentaries about Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr.

See the brief introduction below for some initial comments on what I had, without any glee whatsoever but simply as a matter of object Catholic realism, stated for over two months now would happen on this day. namely, that the longtime pro-abortion, pro-perversity Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., who is a world class demagogue in his own wretched right, would be sworn in as the forty-sixth President of the United States of America.

May God have mercy on us all. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

From August 27, 2008: Memorandum to Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., and Nancy Patricia D'Alesandro Pelosi

As I have been writing for the past two and one-half months, the only thing that was going to happen on January 20, 2021, was that the pro-abortion, pro-sodomite, statist and career leech on the public dole, Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., would be sworn in as the forty-sixth president of the United States of America. All the angst, all the agitation, all the truly groundless speculation that something "big" was going to happen to keep Donald John Trump in the presidency did not happen, and there is no "underground government" waiting to take over at some point now or ever. The "qanon" idiocy has deceived thousands upon thousands of Catholics into wasting their good Catholic time during Advent, Christmas and the Epiphany into thinking that all they had to do was "wait" and "see" what would happen. Well, we have seen "what" has "happened." Nothing other than that which was predictable. 

It is truly phenomenal to see Catholics place their hopes in a mere man who has always been his own worst enemy and thus made it possible for those who blocked his administration at every turn to return to power to make sure they can never lose it again. 

Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr.'s incredibly hypocritical and self-righeous inaugural address, which had the temerity to cite Saint Augustine, who explained that Catholicism as the only source of true unity among men, not the principles, such as they are, of the false opposites of the naturalist "left" or "right," will be the subject of the next original commentary for this website. However, as noted a little over fourteen hours ago, I may not be able to complete that article for a few days, and part ten of "Sin: More Dangerous Than the Coronavirus" will be written thereafter, whereupon I will return to the work of book projects before this site is "purged" in our supposedly new era of "civility."  "Civility for the "left" means agreeing with them without complaint and without dissent lest one be "cancelled" as a "hater."

For the moment, therefore, I continue to offer some republished and re-formatted commentaries written about Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. This commentary was published on August  27, 2008.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Fabian and Sebastian, pray for us.
