February 16, 2016, Update on the Feast of Saint Peter Damian and the Commemoration of Tuesday of the Second Week in Lent

Well, work continues on part two of , which is turning out to be a very long commentary. Work has been slowed somewhat by the fact that I inadvently forgot to turn off my satellite-based internet connection for a three-hour period on Saturday, resulting the loss of eleven gigabytes out of the monthly allotment of twenty gigabytes offered by our internet provider. This makes it necessary to drive to a public facility to download important documentation, something that is very time-consuming. There are also several other articles that await completion after part two of my commentary on Jorge Mario Bergoglio's interview and "Father" Federico Lombardi's shameless effort to spin in his behalf.

Even though I do not have a new article to offer today, there are five written back in November and December of 2010 when the then reigning universal public face of apostasy, Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, gave an interview to German journalist Peter Seewald, who published it as a book under the title The Light of the World: the Pope, The Church and Signs of The Times. "Pope" Benedict XVI made a blunder just as significant as the one made by "Pope Francis" concerning the intention frustration of the first end of that which is proper marriage to "protect" those infected with a certain disease. Although Jorge is concerned with a different disease, the mysterious Zika virus that is being used as the latest pretext to prevent the conception  of babies to kill them once conceived, the false principle at work in each instance is the same, and it is an inversion of Catholic truth: "Fear not him who can kill the soul, fear only that which can kill the body by taking whatever measures necessary to 'protect' oneself."

Thus, readers might like to review the dog-and-pony-show that took place back in 2010, which included "clarifications" and gymnastics of moral theology by Federico Lombardi and by Ratzinger/Benedict's protege, William "Cardinal" Levada, who was then the prefect of the conciliar sect's so-called Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith: If Them, Why Not Others?, Let the Olympic Games of Absurdity Begin!, Razing The Last Bastions, Nothing New Under Benedict's Sun,Words and Actions Without Consequences, Making a Mockery of Catholicism. There is really nothing new under the conciliar sun. Everything is pretty much a variation of what has gone before, admitting that the boundaries of licentiousness keep being expanded to the point where acts that are Mortal Sins in the objective order of things are considered to be "natural" and "necessary" while efforts to exhort sinners to change their lives are said to be "judgmental" and "merciless."

Part two of "Jorge's Most Outrageous Interview to Date," therefore, should be ready by tomorrow, Wednesday, February 24, 2016.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Peter Damian, pray for us.

 

Jorge Misrepresents the Prophet Jonas as a Champion of Illegal Immigration, part two

Although I am very much aware that the Vatican spinmeister, “Father” Federico Lombard, S.J., issued a “clarification” about Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s denunciation of Donald Trump as a non-Christian because of his proposals to protect the borders of the United States of America, I decided to complete part two of my commentary on the Argentine Apostate’s complete ideological manipulation of the preaching of the Prophet Jonas to the Ninivites. This is a relatively brief commentary.

I will, of course, be including comments about Lombardi’s laughable “clarification” in part two of “Jorge’s Most Outrageous Interview to Date,” although it was pointed out in yesterday’s long article that Bergoglio knew full well what he was doing—and he has known full well what he has been doing by treating mass-murdering Communists such as the Castros and pro-abortion, pro-peversity politicians such as Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., Andrew Mark Cuomo, Francois Hollande, et al., with warmth and affection without saying a word of condemnation to them or about them because of their support for sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance.

In other words, “Father” Lombardi, your boss is a revolutionary leftist hypocrite, and I met a lot of those folks during my thirty plus years as a college professor. There is defending or excusing Bergoglio’s ideological manipulation of Sacred Scripture to indemnify the agenda of One World Governance.

The current commentary should put to rest any questions that skeptical readers may have about Bergoglio’s blasphemy against God the Holy Ghost in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, on Ember Wednesday in Lent, February 17, 2016.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Jorge's Most Outrageous Interview to Date, part one

I had gone to sleep around 1:45 a.m. thinking that this article had been published successfully. It was to my horror upon awakening five and one-half hours later that I read an e-mail from a reader informing me that only the invocation to the saints got published.

Although I have no idea at all as to what happened, I had saved the text under two different titles, and was able to retrieve it just a few moments ago. I am sorry for the problem. It is Ember Friday in Lent. This is good penance, but I am sorry to have imposed it upon you, the readers!

Mea culpa.

Although my intention was to expand yesterday’s commentary on Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s blasphemous misrepresentation of the preaching of the Prophet Jonas to the Ninivites (and there was a good deal of transcription done in this regard), the false “pontiff’s” most outrageous interview to date required me to interrupt that work.

This particular commentary is part one of a two-part series dealing with the aforementioned outrageous interview. While part two will deal with just two questions, much time is required to provide the background and documentation that is necessary to include in the commentary.

One of the questions to be explored in part two deals with the Zika virus, which prompted Bergoglio to refer to the permission given by Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria/Paul VI in the 196/0s to religious sisters in Africa to “protect” themselves from forcible assaults, something that I learned about during my time in seminary. Although I wrote an article about this matter that appeared in The Wanderer in the Fall of 2000, it will be necessary to point out the connection between that permission and what Bergoglio said yesterday, an effort that will take a bit of time. It is Lent, which means it is time for penance, and this work is truly penitential, believe me.

As it is, this should hold you until tomorrow.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Jorge Misrepresents the Prophet Jonas as a Champion of Illegal Immigration

This article got published before its completion as I, just a little bit tired from last night’s long article, which had been several days in development, forgot to uncheck the “publish” boxes when saving its initial drafts. I apologize to those of you who saw the article appear in bits of drabs.

Anyhow, this is a very brief commentary dealing with Jorge’s blasphemous misrepresentation of the meaning of the conversion of the Ninivites at the preaching of the Prophet Jonas.

Work will resume on part two of “Still Selling the Rope All These Years” as I am going to wait until after the late Antonin Scalia’s funeral on Saturday, February 20, 2016, Ember Saturday in Lent, to post my commentary on his legal philosophy that was based upon a rejection of the use of the Natural Law in his judicial decision-making.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Simeon, pray for us.

Saint Marie-Bernard Soubirous, pray for us.

To Tell the Truth, Few Know the Truth

This is a long commentary, replete with a lot of political history, on the Republican slugfest of four days ago. It has been revised in several places since its initial posting in the overnight hours this morning, including the correction of my egregious error of referring to South Carolina as the "Magnolia State," an "unforced error" that was caused by fatigue. South Carolina is, of course, the Palmetto State. Mississippi is the Magnolia State. My apologies.

The next commentary on this site will discuss the work of the late Associate Justice Antonin Scalia and the political firestorm swirling around a possible replacement.

Jorge's trip to Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, for his "cross border" liturgical service will not go without comment, and "Still Selling the Rope After All These Years" will be completed by the end of this week or the beginning of the next.

Thank you for your patience.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

In Direct Defiance of the Catholic Faith

Update on the First Sunday of Lent and the Commemoration of Saint Valentine, February 14, 2016:

Much happened yesterday, Saturday after Ash Wednesday, February 13, 2016, and there is no time after Midnight on the First Sunday of Lent to do anything other than to note that commentaries on yesterday's events, which included the unexpected death of Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States of America Antonin Gregory Scalia while vacationing in Texas, an incredible slugfest of a "debate" held in Charleston, South Carolina, that featured Donald J Trump's uncompromising criticism of George Walker Bush and the unconstitutional, immoral and unjust invasion and occupation of Iraq (a criticism that does not indemnify his use of vulgar language, it should be note, about which, most sadly, he is not in the least bit ashamed or apologetic), and Jorge Mario Bergoglio's efforts to transform, using a bit more subtlety than usual, the meaning of the apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe into a ringing endorsement of his efforts to reach out to the "peripheries," will be posted as time permits. This means a further delay in the completion of "Still Selling the Rope After All These Years." The events that transpired yesterday, however, require a bit of attention, and I might record one of my ultra low-tech, completely sub-amateurish-quality video presentations to try to be a bit more time efficient prior to commentaries on each event.

Please pray for the soul of Justice Scalia. He tried to defend the original meaning of the Constitution as explained by the men who wrote its text. Alas, his efforts to do so were undermined by the simple fact that a document that admits of no higher authority than its own text will become as much of a plaything in the hands of legal positivists as is Sacred Scripture in the hands of Protestants and modernist Catholics. That is, why should a jurist have any "reverence" for the "original intent" of a constitution when men believe that they can deconstruct Sacred Scripture of its plain meaning? A nation not founded on a due recognition of the Social Reign of Christ the King as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively through His Catholic Church in all that pertains to the good of souls will wind up having judicial cases based upon arguing over who gets to decide what is beyond the ability of humans to decide, which was, if you recall, the subject of a four part series in June and July of last year. Additionally, Justice Scalia hamstrung himself by claiming that he could not use the Natural Law as the basis of judicial decision-making as the Constitution made no reference thereto. He was very mistaken in this regard.

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

End of Update:

Description of "In Direct Defiance of the Catholic Faith":

Jorge met Kirill on Friday, February 12, 2016, the Feast of the Seven Founders of the Order of the Servites of the Blessed Virgin Mary, in that wonderful oasis of freedom, Havana, Cuba.

I have a few things to say. Just a few.

Work resumes on part two of “Still Selling the Rope After All These Years,” although Jorge’s speeches in Mexico and tonight’s circus of the midget naturalists in Charleston, South Carolina, may require more immediate attention.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Still Selling The Rope After All These Years, part one

Well, I have decided to divide what is being called “Still Selling the Rope After All These Years” (a title drawn from what many believe to be an apocryphal quote attributed to the Bolshevik butcher named Vladimir Lenin, namely, that “the capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them”) into two parts.

This first installment documents the betrayal of innocent human beings in Red China by the politicians, bankers, merchants, and industrialists of the United States of America, a betrayal in which the European Union, of course, has participated fully.

The second installment will explain how each of the past three conciliar “popes” have continued the “ostpolik” of Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria/Paul the Sick’s appeasement of Communism in Eastern Europe and of the Union of Soviet Socalist Republics itself. Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who really, really knows that is he is doing, Donald Trump, including on the issue of illegal immigration, is simply finishing Montini’s job of creating a One World Ecumenical Church that is completely subservient to Antichrist’s system of One World Governance.

Anyone who thinks that we are “voting” our way out of the chastisement that God is sending us at this time is badly mistaken.

Well, much is going on now, including Jorge’s stopover in Cuba to sign another One World Ecumenical Church accord with the leader of a heretical and schismatic church, namely, Patriarch Kirill of the Russian Orthodox Church in this instance, before he takes his roadshow to Mexico, where he will dishonor Our Lady by championing “liberation theology” and his false “mercy” for those who are unrepentant sinners. Expect the conciliar “pope” to tell “bishops” and seminarians to pay no attention to “complex doctrines” and to “welcome” all to what purports to be “Holy Communion” no matter how they are living.

Additionally, the reduced cast of the Circus of Midget Naturalists will be debating tomorrow evening in South Carolina. It’s much easier, although still very tiring, to comment on this sideshow than it is to deal with Senor Jorge!

In other words, part two of this article may take a bit longer to complete, but I will continue to work on it nevertheless.

Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.

The Seven Holy Founders of the Order of Servites of the Blessed Virgin Mary, pray for us.

Republished: Penance! Penance! Penance! Pray to God for Sinners!

Today is the one hundred fifty-ninth anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady to Saint Bernadette Soubirous in the Grotto of Massabielle near Lourdes, France. Our Lady explained to the fourteen year-old Bernadette that we must do penance for our sins and for those of others.

Can we do any less in our day?

Indeed, the state of the Church Militant on earth and of the world-at-large has worsened as the sins of men have grown more numerous and more daring and as most baptized Catholics have been deprived of access to Sanctifying Grace by virtue of the invalid sacraments offered in the counterfeit church of conciliarism. God is not going to permit any country that kills the innocent preborn with legal impunity and kills souls in the name of the falsehoods of "freedom of speech" and "freedom of the press" and "freedom of religion" and a general sense of legal and cultural licentiousness to know long term material prosperity. Then again, these merchants of death have been enabled by the conciliar revolutionaries, who believe that signs of "outward penance belong to a different era in the history of the Church." We must indeed take Our Lady's injunction, "Penance! Penance! Penance! Pray to God for sinners," most seriously as we pray as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permits. 

The next article for this site is nearing completion, and it is my hope video lectures I recorded on my cellular telephone on Thursday, February 9, 2017, the Feast of Saint Cyril of Alexandria and the Commemoration of Saint Apolonnia, later today.

Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.

Saint Bernardette Soubiros, pray for us.

Revised: From Dust Unto Dust

Two new articles are in the process of being completed, including "Painting the Vatican Walls Red. It is my hope that this long-delayed article will be posted by tomorrow morning.

Today's posting is a revised and republished reflection on the beginning of our Lenten journey into the desert of prayer, penance, sacrifice, mortification, and almsgiving. Another republished article will follow in a few minutes of this posting.

A blessed Lent to you all.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Scholastica, pray for us.

These Are The Guys in the White Hats?

There was a “debate” on Saturday evening, February 6, 2016, the Feast of Saint Titus and the Commemoration of Saint Dorothy, that required a bit of time, just enough time as to further delay my article about Jorge and Red China, which will be very comprehensive.

Well, even the current article is pretty thorough. It is also very pointed as I exhort Catholics once again to quit believing in the political equivalent of the tooth fairy. The common good cannot be pursued on the basis of lies and false premises by shallow men who grasp at issues without understanding root causes and without a clue as to First and Last Things.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint John Matha, pray for us.
