There Is Nothing "Pro-Life" About RyanCare

What is called the "American Health Care Act," aka RyanCare or ObamaCareLite, will be voted upon by the Committee of the Whole in the United States House of Representatives at some point today even though the vote has been delayed because of wrangling over fiscal matters contained in the bill. My objection to ObamaCare and RyanCare is simple: (a) there no constitutional authority for the Federal government to direct the provision of health insurance; (b) there is nothing "pro-life" about Ryan Care despite the defunding of Planned Barrenhood.

This commentary, which has been expanded to include an appenix about a registered nurse's eyewitness testimony of how a hopisce killed her forty-three year-old son, who was not near death or in pain despite knowing that the leukemia from which he was suffering was incurable. This is must-reading.

Saint Benedict of Nursia: Praying and Working for Christendom, Not Conciliarism

This is a substantially revised reflection that contrasts the work of Saint Benedict of Nursia, whose feast is today, which is also the fifty-sixth anniversary of my Confirmation at the hands of Bishop Walter P. Kellenberg, the founding Bishop of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, New York, at Saint Aloysius Church, Great Neck, New York, with that of the two most recent conciliar “popes.”

Much time has been spent to give attention to Bergoglio’s denial of the commission that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ gave to the Eleven on Ascension Thursday to convert all men to the true Faith. Saint Benedict of Nursia, the father of western Monasticism and thus of Europe itself, had an intolerance for such teaching. So should we.

On The Feast of Saint Joseph: Our Patron and Protector

Today, of course, is the great Feast of Saint Joseph, the Chaste Spouse of Our Lady, the just and silent man of the House of David. Saint Joseph denied himself his biological fatherhood in order to serve as the ever-virginal spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the most loving foster-father to Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

In him, Saint Joseph, is to be found every virtue for a husband and father to imitate: patience, charity, forbearance in all difficulties, fortitude, perseverance, temperance, and total self-abnegation. Those of us who are husbands and fathers must learn to be more silent, to learn to be more loving, to learn to be more patient, to learn to be more meek, to learn to be ever-ready to worker harder and harder at our life's work so as to help our wives and our children to live as redeemed creatures here below in order to know eternal happiness hereafter in Heaven. Saint Joseph is the model of home life and the patron of artisans, the protector of widows and orphans, the patron of those who are in danger of death. May we invoke his patronage each day after we invoke that of his Most Chaste Spouse, Our Lady, and never be slow to turn to him in our spiritual and temporal needs:

"O Saint Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in thee all my interests and desires. O thou Saint Joseph, do assist me by thy powerful intercession, and obtain for me from thy divine Son all spiritual blessings, through Jesus Christ, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ; so that, having engaged here below thy heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of fathers. O Saint Joseph, I never weary contemplating thee, and Jesus asleep in thy arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near thy heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His fine head for me, and ask Him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath. Saint Joseph, Patron of departing souls, pray for me. Amen!"

A blessed Feast of Saint Joseph to you all! 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

An original article, Jorge's Guide to Clerical Malformation: Textbook Modernism, was posted at Midnight yesterday and tweaked a bit about fifteen hours later.

Jorge's Guide for Clerical Deformation: Textbook Modernism

The false "pontiff" addressed the priests and presbyters of Rome (Italy, not New York) seventeen days ago.

This is a brief word or two about the Argentine Apostate's textbook Modernism that he represents as a guide to "clerical formation."

Yesterday, March 18, 2017, was the thirty-fifth anniversary of the death of my mother, Norma Florence Droleskey, in her beloved Corpus Christi, Texas, at the age of sixty-one years, twelve days. She had been diagnosed with stomach and esophageal cancer just seven weeks before her death. 

I had intended to write a brief reflection about my mother prior to her death. My recent illness prevented me from doing so, and I have been waiting to receive family photographs that I have not seen in a quarter century since my late father's death on September 5, 1992, although it does not appear that I am going to get them anytime in the near future. 

Suffice it to say for the moment, though, that it is so hard to believe that my mother died thirty-five years ago. Please do pray for the repose of her immortal soul.

Yesterday was also the tenth anniversary of Father Daniel Johnson, the pastor of Saint Mary by the Sea Church in Huntington Beach, California, for over twenty-five years, and the ninth anniversary of the death of Mrs. Theresa Colgan, the mother of a friend of ours who had been a student of mine at Saint Francis College in Brooklyn, New York, during the 1985-1986 academic year. Please pray for their souls as well

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, pray for us.



Jorge's Program of Eternal Warming

Although the subject of Jorge's Band of Theological Racketeers Legitimize Paul Ehrlich two months ago, the Pontifical Academy of Science's conference on "Biological Exinction" was as bad as advertised.

Indeed, the Argentine Apostate himself is reported to have said that families must be limited in their size if parents cannot raise their children "properly." 

This is but a brief response to such apostasy, which doubts the providential care of God for His rational creatures and deifies the earth while making man its slave.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Patrick, pray for us.

Saint Patrick: Apostle to the Emerald Isle

This is a slightly revised tribute to our glorious Saint Patrick, Bishop and Confessor, whose work in behalf of the conversion of the Irish clans from paganism stands in very sharp contrast to the obeisance that has been paid by the conciliar “popes” and their “bishops” to every false religion and pagan superstition imaginable. It was to wipe out paganism that Saint Patrick spent his life as a missionary to the Emerald Isle, that land of Saints and Scholars which has fallen back into paganism in no small measure because of the false doctrines and sacramental barrenness of the liturgical rites of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. Saint Patrick stands ready to convert each one of us away from our own sins if only we beg his intercession to help make us saints, especially now during Passiontide. We are privileged to have a relic of Saint Patrick that is venerated each night before sleep. This relic was given to us most unexpectedly by a reader some years ago now, perhaps as long as ten years ago. Please be assured that we will include the intentions of each one of our readers in mind as venerate this relic of Saint Patrick this evening.

A blessed Feast of Saint Patrick to you all! 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Everyone Loses When Our King Reigneth Not Over Men and Their Nations, part two

Although still battling the effects of a flu-like illness that has served as a very good Lenten penance, the entirety of yesteday was spent completing his commentary, which is once again aimed at reminding the readers of this site that no country will know lasting prosperity at home or security from other nations if its leaders and citizens are steeped in unrepentant Mortal Sins of one sort of another, up to and including those that cry out to Heaven for vengeance.

There is a good deal of documentation in this commentary, which is why it took the length of time that it did to complete it while slogging through the recent penances. Part three of this series will appear in a few days after I give Senor Bergoglo a little anniversary greeting of sorts tomorrow or Thursday.

Finally, I extend a public note of gratitude to the four people who provided us with non-tax-deducitble financial gifts in the past five days. I do hope that more might join their ranks very soon.

Pope Saint Gregory's Advice to Shepherds and to Us All

As I have been ill with a flu-like sickness that has turned into a very penitential cough that keeps me up most nights, work on the next original article, which is still being written, is proceeding a less than a snail’s pace. It is, though, my hope to complete it today before turning attention once again to the Argentine Apostate, whose fourth anniversary of accession to the conciliar seat of apostasy and betrayal occurs tomorrow, March 13, 2017.

Today, Sunday, March 12, 2017, the Second Sunday of Lent and the Commemoration of the Feast of Pope Saint Gregory the Great. A slightly revised version of a reflection on Pope Saint Gregory the Great that was written in 2010 is offered to the readership today. May we pray to the illustrious Pope Saint Gregory the Great for the restoration of a true pope on the Throne of Saint Peter.

Saint John of God: Understood by God Alone

This article in honor of Saint John of God, whose feast is celebrated today, was written seven years ago now. A lot of hard work went into its completion. I believe it to be one a piece that will give great consolation to those who have not as of yet read it.

Saint John of God was little understood during his life. It was the case that even his longtime spiritual director, Saint John of Avila, who knew him fairly well, did not understand his decisions. Saint John of God suffered from all manner of slanders and even beatings in his life. He suffered slanders even up to the point of his own death. It was enough for him to be understood by God. It should be enough for us as well, especially during this time of apostasy and betrayal when so many of us are misunderstood and castigated by relatives and friends and acquaintances as being "outside of the Church" for our refusal to make any concessions to conciliarism or its false shepherds. We should be grateful that we are as misunderstood and hated and calumniated as was Saint John of God!

Work now resumes on part two of  , which was posted a little over twelve hours ago now.

Everyone Loses When Our King Reigneth Not Over Men and Their Nations, part one

This commentary, which is being divided into two parts, could not have been completed unless time was spent into the overnight hours to do so. Thus it is that this introduction must be very brief as I am not entirely recovered from the case of the flu that has laid me pretty low in the past five days. The sickness is, of course, a wonderful gift given me by the good God to do extra Lenten penance for which I am very grateful. It is still better this than Purgatory in 2017!

Part of one of this two-part series focuses on some of the fireworks taking place in city designed on a Masonic pattern and built upon swamp land from territory ceded by the Commonwealth of Virignia and the State of Maryland, and it is yet an other reminder that everyone loses when Our King, Christ the King, reigneth not over men and their nations.

A revised reflection on the life of Saint John of God will be posted this afternoon before resuming work on part two of this commentary.

Finally, four people were kind enough to respond with non-tax-deductible financial gifts when a brief mention of the need was made five days ago now. Their generosity is appreciated and has been acknowledged in private notes. It is still the case, though, that we need more such assistance. Although the pace of the work has been slowed, articles such as this one take time to compete. I simply ask those who support the work of this site and have the financial wherewithal to make a non-tax-deductible financial gift to do so, especially those who have not made one thus far. Thanks so much.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint John of God, pray for us.
