Republished: Opposing False Ecumenism With His Very Life

As is the case more often than not, my plans to post part six of my review of Amoris Laetitia have been derailed for another day, principally because of the nagging health problems that cause fatigue pretty much all of the time. However, I am working on part six now and do hope to have it posted by tomorrow morning.

In the meantime, I am offering a republished reflection on the life and martyrdom of Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen, O.F.M., Cap.,whose feast is commemorated today, the Fourth Sunday after Easter, who opposed false ecumenism with his very life. Unlike the conciliar "popes" and their "episcopal" henchmen, Saint Fidelis came to "extirpate heresy, not to embrace it."

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen, pray for us.

Prayers Requested for Baby Israel Stinson and His Parents

Dr. Paul A. Byrne sent out an e-mail to his extensive list last evening to request prayers for a two year-old baby, Israel Stinson, who has been declared "brain dead" after suffering an asthma attack.

Here are the details as found on the Life Legal Foundation website:

Last Thursday evening, Life Legal obtained a temporary court order prohibiting a Sacramento area hospital from withdrawing life-sustaining care to two-year old baby Israel. On Friday morning, we were back in court again. The judge granted the family’s request for a one-week extension of the order to find a physician to provide an independent evaluation of Israel’s condition.

Life Legal’s Alexandra Snyder visited baby Israel in the hospital this weekend. She happened to be there when the doctor came by to provide Israel’s family with an update on his condition. Israel’s oxygen levels and blood gases are normal, his organs are functioning well, and he is stable. His lungs are clear and he was scheduled to receive an increase in nutrition. The family is working with an outside physician who is currently reviewing Israel’s medical records.

A local CBS News affiliate interviewed Israel’s parents yesterday.

This is an extraordinarily difficult time for Israel’s parents and they are trusting God day by day to help them get through this. They—and we—continue to pray for a miracle. Life Legal is honored to stand with this family as they fight for Israel’s life.

Israel’s parents are so grateful for your prayers. Please keep praying for this family—and please consider making a donation to help Life Legal defend others who are unable to speak for themselves. We have seen an increase in calls asking for assistance in cases involving the refusal to provide life-sustaining care for the elderly and the very young.

SACRAMENTO, Calif., April 15, 2016 — Life Legal Defense Foundation received a call this week from the mother of Israel Stinson, a two-year old boy who suffered a severe asthma attack and is on life support. He has been at a Sacramento area hospital since April 1 and was transferred to a Kaiser facility on April 12.  

After Israel was at the Kaiser hospital for less than 24 hours, the hospital notified the parents that they intended to run another test to determine Israel’s brain activity—and that the hospital would likely withdraw Israel’s life support, which would result in his immediate death.

Israel’s mother posted notes throughout his hospital room instructing Kaiser not to conduct any tests on her son without her permission. The hospital ignored the notes and conducted the tests in violation of the mother’s wishes.

Life Legal was in court with Israel’s mother yesterday seeking a temporary restraining order prohibiting the hospital from withdrawing life support and requiring that Israel receive any treatment needed to maintain his stability. The judge granted the order.

Israel’s parents will be back in Placer County Superior Court this morning fighting to keep Israel on life support until he can be evaluated by an outside specialist. (As found at Life Legal Foundation: Hospital to End Baby Israel Stinson's Life.)

The merchants of death who have polluted the practice of medicine by reviving the body-snatching of the Aztecs and other barbarians no longer err on the side of life. No, their first reaction in most circumstances is to presume the myth of "brain death" that Dr. Paul Byrne has decisively refuted time and time again as nothing other than the medical industry's manufactured, profit-making scheme to subject living human beings to vivisection in the name of "giving the gift of life." As Dr. Byrne has noted so clearly, the bodily organs of cadavers are useless for purposes of transplantation, and thus it is that human beings with beating hearts are declared "brain dead" and all treatment to save their lives is terminated.

We must pray for Baby Israel Stinson and for his parents in this time of needless trial.

Perhaps it is good once again to refer to the words of Bishop Clemens von Galen when he denounced the eugenics policies of the Adolf Hitler's Third Reich seventy-five years ago:

No: We are concerned with men and women, our fellow creatures, our brothers and sisters! Poor human beings, ill human beings, they are unproductive, if you will. But does that mean that they have lost the right to live? Have you, have I, the right to live only so long as we are productive, so long as we are recognised by others as productive?

If the principle that men is entitled to kill his unproductive fellow-man is established and applied, then woe betide all of us when we become aged and infirm! If it is legitimate to kill unproductive members of the community, woe betide the disabled who have sacrificed their health or their limbs in the productive process! If unproductive men and women can be disposed of by violent means, woe betide our brave soldiers who return home with major disabilities as cripples, as invalids! If it is once admitted that men have the right to kill “unproductive” fellow-men even though it is at present applied only to poor and defenceless mentally ill patients” then the way is open for the murder of all unproductive men and women: the incurably ill, the handicapped who are unable to work, those disabled in industry or war. The way is open, indeed, for the murder of all of us when we become old and infirm and therefore unproductive. Then it will require only a secret order to be issued that the procedure which has been tried and tested with the mentally ill should be extended to other “unproductive” persons, that it should also be applied to those suffering from incurable tuberculosis, the aged and infirm, persons disabled in industry, soldiers with disabling injuries!

Then no man will be safe: some committee or other will be able to put him on the list of “unproductive” persons, who in their judgment have become “unworthy to live”. And there will be no police to protect him, no court to avenge his murder and bring his murderers to justice.

Who could then have any confidence in a doctor? He might report a patient as unproductive and then be given instructions to kill him! It does not bear thinking of, the moral depravity, the universal mistrust which will spread even in the bosom of the family, if this terrible doctrine is tolerated, accepted and put into practice. Woe betide mankind, woe betide our German people, if the divine commandment, “Thou shalt not kill”, which the Lord proclaimed on Sinai amid thunder and lightning, which God our Creator wrote into man's conscience from the beginning, if this commandment is not merely violated but the violation is tolerated and remains unpunished! (Three Sermons in Defiance of the Nazis by Bishop von Galen.)

This is happening with legal impunity and cultural approval right here in the United States of America. We must be aware of the facts as we entrust ourselves entirely to Our Lord as His consecrated slaves through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, making sure to pray as many Rosaries each day as our state-in-life permits.

Please see for a list of articles referencing Dr. Byrne's refutation of the medical industry's manufactured myth of "brain death."

Work on part five "Jorge's Exhortation of Self-Justification Before Men" continues. Check back by late tomorrow night. Thank you for your patience.

Once again, please pray to Our Lady and to Saint Joseph for Israel Stinson and his family.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, pray for us.

Inspector Jorge Wants To See Documents

This is a very short article concerning one of the answers that Bergoglio gave in his gabfest with reporters while en route back to Rome from the Greek island of Lesbos on Saturday, April 16, 2016, and, no, it is not about footnote 351 in Amoris Laetitia, which will be handled in due course in my own continuing series.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, pray for us.

Oh, by the way, there are prompts on every page to make a donation. Some would be rather helpful about now. Thank you.

Jorge's Exhortation of Self-Justification Before Men, part four

It will take many more segments to complete this ongoing review of the revolutionary manifesto known as Amoris Laetitia. This is part four.

Get ready for chastisements aplenty as our situation is going to get worse and worse as the conciliar revolutionaries continue their lovefest with sin and those who live in it,

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

The Conciliar Chair of Disunity and Division

Confusion reigns supreme now in the counterfeit church of conciliarism.

Some “conservatives,” particularly Raymond Leo “Cardinal” Burke, within the structures of the false conciliar sect say that Amoris Laetitia is “non-magisterial” and thus not binding upon Catholics, while others are contending that it is heretical and represents a rupture with Catholic truth.

This is somewhat reminiscent of what the late Father Frederick Schell, S.J., told us on March 11, 2002, as the news of the scandals concerning conciliar clergy were gaining traction in the secular media after having been given much attention in The Wanderer in the 1990s, “I’m just going to sit back and root for both sides” (meaning the media and the “bishops”). As a former friend of mine noted during the Crown Heights riots that took place between August 19, 1991, and August 21, 1991, “In matters of this sort I maintain a policy of strict neutrality.”

We are simply eyewitnesses to the collapse of a “unity” within the false conciliar sect that never existed in the first place as falsehood breeds division, not unity.

Such confusion is the antithesis of what is produced by the Chair of Unity that is the papacy.

Part four of “Jorge’s Exhortation of Self-Justification Before Men” should appear by tomorrow morning.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, pray for us.

Republished: Why Live in Fear With Saint Joseph So Near?

Today is the Solemnity of Saint Joseph in Paschaltide, a feast that originated under the title of “The Patronage of Saint Joseph” in 1847 by Pope Pius IX before being given its current name in 1911 and then repositioned two years later on the Wednesday following the Second Sunday after Easter by Pope Saint Pius X. This reflection is by way of an annual reminder, slightly revised, to trust in Saint Joseph, the Patron of the Universal Church and the Protector of the Faithful, in these times of persecution by the forces of Antichrist in the world and in the counterfeit church of conciliarism. "Jorge's Exhortation of Self-Justification Before Men, part three," was published several minutes ago. A guest commentary by Mr. Timothy A. Duff was posted on Monday, April 11, 2016, the Feast of Pope Saint Leo the Great. Please scroll down for the links. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Saint Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church and Protector of the Faithful, pray for us. Saint Hermenegild, pray for us.

Jorge's Exhortation of Self-Justification Before Men, part three

Reviewing the text of Amoris Laetitia again and again to prepare commentaries on it is a truly distasteful task.

This particular commentary focuses on several early passages in the text of this hideous “exhortation to sin, and sin boldly in order to be led ‘gradually’ to the ‘ideal’ of Catholic teaching) that serve as the foundation for the final section of rank moral relativism that could have been written by Protagoras himself.

A blessed Solemnity of Saint Joseph to you all.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church and Protector of the Faithful, pray for us.

By the way, a guest column, written by Mr. Timothy A. Duff, appeared on Monday, April 11, 2016, the Feast of Pope Saint Leo the Great. Please scroll down below for its link.

Jorge's Exhortation of Self-Justification Before Men: Another Brief Overview

Work continues on a sustained analysis of various key paragraphs of Amoris Laetitia.

For the moment, however, paragraphs seventy-eight and seventy-nine have been selected to serve as a contrast with a missionary saint and with the teaching of Pope Saint Leo the Great, whose feast is celebrated this very day, about the very nature of the papacy and of the fact that the Catholic Church can never be infected to heresy.

More by late this evening.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Good Shepherd Sunday Update

Although two guest articles are ready for publication, they are being reviewed by their respective authors for their final approval and subsequent posting.

As for my own work, suffice it to say that all day yesterday, Saturday, April 9, 2016, was spent reading the horrific, insidiously Modernist text of Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s Amoris Laetitia with great care. Today, Good Shepherd Sunday, will be spent completing the commentary of part two of my current series, which as noted two days ago will require time to complete. However, I desire to be thorough in the analysis provided as it is not an exaggeration that every page of Amoris Laetitia is infected with Modernism to a greater or lesser extent. It is a truly penitential task to have to spend one's time reading through such a document that consists of sections that could have been written by "Dear Abby" or "Ann Landers" or by Ruth Westheimer. In other words, there is a great deal of Judeo-Masonic naturalism in various parts of Amoris Laetitia.

Thank you for your patience. The next commentary on Amoris Laetitia will be published when it is done, which is likely to be by tomorrow morning, the Feast of Pope Saint Leo the Great.

For the moment, though, here are two wonderful reflections on the meaning of Good Shepherd Sunday  as found in the readings for Matin's in today's Divine Office. The first was written, appropriately enough, by Pope Leo the Great:

Dearly beloved brethren, the days which passed between the Resurrection and the Ascension of the Lord, wore not idly by, but in them were established great Sacraments, and great Mysteries were revealed. In them was abolished the terror of that fearful death, and it was shown that not the soul only, but the body also, will not die eternally. In them the breathing of the Lord on His Apostles shed upon them the Holy Ghost, and the Blessed Apostle Peter, being given the keys of the kingdom of heaven, was chosen out of the rest to receive the chief care of the Lord's fold.

It was during those days, that as two of His disciples were walking together, the Lord Himself joined them, and made Himself One of three companions. Then that, to clear away all shadow of doubt from our mind, He rebuked the slowness of such as still feared and trembled. Their hearts enlightened by faith, caught the flame; and, whereas they had afore been cold, they glowed again as the Lord opened to them the Scriptures. In the breaking of bread their eyes were opened, and they knew Him. And, O, how much happier were they with their eyes opened, and gazing upon the glorification of our nature in His Person, than were the first father and mother of our race, upon whom their own transgression had brought shame!

Amid these and other miracles, while the disciples were still troubled with fearful thoughts, the Lord manifested Himself in the midst of them, and said : Peace be unto you. And lest their reason should be deceived by the vain imaginations which lurked in their hearts, (for they thought that What they saw was a spirit, and not Flesh,) He rebuked thoughts so inconsistent with the truth; and pointed out to the eyes of the doubters the marks of crucifixion which still remained in His Hands and His Feet, and bade them handle Him more closely. Those open Wounds made by the nails and spear in His Body remain ever open to close the wounds in unbelievers' hearts : that we may hold, not with doubtful faith, but with most firm and absolute knowledge, that the Manhood Which lay in the grave is the Same Which now sitteth at the right hand of God the Father. (Pope Saint Leo the Great, First Sermon on the Ascension. As found in Matins, The Divine Office.)

Pope Saint Gregory the Great explained the meaning of the Good Shepherd who is Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ:

Dearly beloved brethren, ye have heard from the Holy Gospel what is at once your instruction, and our danger. Behold, how He Who, not by the varying gifts of nature, but of the very essence of His being, is Good, behold how He saith: I am the Good Shepherd. And then He saith what is the character of His goodness, even of that goodness of His which we must strive to copy: The Good Shepherd giveth His life for the Sheep. As He had foretold, even so did He; as He had commanded, so gave He ensample. The Good Shepherd gave His life for the sheep, and made His Own Body and His Own Blood to be our Sacramental Food, pasturing upon His Own Flesh the sheep whom He had bought.

He, by despising death, hath shown us how to do the like; He hath set before us the mould wherein it behoveth us to be cast. Our first duty is, freely and tenderly to spend our outward things for His sheep, but lastly, if need be, to serve the same by our death also. From the light offering of the first, we go on to the stern offering of the last, and, if we be ready to give our life for the sheep, why should we scruple to give our substance, seeing how much more is the life than meat? Matth. vi. 25. Antiphon at the Song of Zacharias. I am the Shepherd of the sheep: * I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: I am the Good Shepherd, and know My sheep, and am known of Mine. Alleluia, Alleluia.

And some there be which love the things of this world better than they love the sheep; and such as they deserve no longer to be called shepherds. These are they of whom it is written : But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth . He is not a shepherd but an hireling which feedeth the Lord's sheep, not because he loveth their souls, but because he doth gain earthly wealth thereby. He that taketh a shepherd's place, but seeketh not gain of souls, that same is but an hireling; such an one is ever ready for creature comforts, he loveth his pre-eminence, he groweth sleek upon his income, and he liketh well to see men bow down to him. (Pope Saint Gregory the Great, Fourteenth Sermon on the Gospels. As found in Matins, The Divine Office.)

A blessed Good Shepherd Sunday to you all as we keep praying for the restoration of a true pope on the Throne of Saint Peter.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
