To Suffer In This Time For Christ the King Is A Privilege

Yes, I am a “party pooper” when it comes to the quadrennial madness of naturalism that descends like a plague of locusts to distract even Catholics from viewing the world through the supernatural eyes of the Holy Faith at all times.

Thus it is that this commentary about the “guidelines” for public schools issued by the administration of President Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro three days ago seeks to provide a supernatural context to what so many see only on the level of pure naturalism.

Remember this and remember it well: Naturalism is of the adversary, and there I no defeating naturalism with any kind of naturalism.

Viva Cristo Rey!

Viva La Virgen de Guadalupe!

Part nine of my commentary on Amoris Laetitia should appear on Whit Wednesday, May 18, 2016, which is Ember Wednesday and the Commemoration of Saint Venantius. There is much work involved to complete what will be my concluding commentary on an exhortation that is the work of the demons themselves.

From the Beginning: A Mission to Convert All Men and Nations

Today is Pentecost Sunday, the birthday of Holy Mother Church, the upon which the first pope, Saint Peter, who was vivified as the Vivifier Himself, God the Holy Ghost, descended upon him and Our Lady and the other Apostles (and the rest of the disciples) gathered in the Upper Room in Jerusalem as they completed their Novena to God the Holy Ghost ten days after Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's glorious Ascension to His Father's right hand on Ascension Thursday.

Saint Peter wasted no time in doing something that is forbidden, at least in a de facto sense (see Wonder No More, which was revised in various parts yesterday afternoon), in the counterfeit church of conciliarism: he preached to the Jews about the necessity of their converting to the true Faith.

The missionary work of the Church to seek with urgency the unconditional conversion of all men and all nations to the her maternal bosom, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there is no true social order, brought us glorious missionaries who were willing to embrace many sacrifices, including martyrdom itself, to spread the Faith of the Divine Redeemer, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, so that men and all nations would be able to order themselves rightly according to the Deposit of Faith that He has entrusted exclusively to Holy Mother Church for Its eternal safekeeping and infallible explication and by means of a fervent cooperation with the graces won for us by the shedding of Our Lord's Most Precious Blood and that flow into our hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of all Graces.

The work of conversion does not end when one is Baptized or Confirmed. The work of conversion away from our sinful selves to become more conformed to the Cross of the Divine Redeemer and the merciful designs of His Most Sacred Heart for us is one that is constant. Every beat of our hearts, consecrated as they must be to that same Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, must burn with fire for the love of God as He has revealed Himself to us through His true Church and as we seek to grow in holiness and to make reparation for our sins and those of the whole world. It is useless for us to be converted in the Baptismal font unless we are willing to let God the Holy Ghost help to convert us every day to cooperate more fully with His Seven Gifts and Twelve Fruits.

Saint Paul the Apostle explained that the spiritual man, the one who is filled with Sanctifying Grace, cannot be understood by the sensual or worldly man:

For what man knoweth the things of a man, but the spirit of a man that is in him? So the things also that are of God no man knoweth, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of this world, but the Spirit that is of God; that we may know the things that are given us from God. Which things also we speak, not in the learned words of human wisdom; but in the doctrine of the Spirit, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the sensual man perceiveth not these things that are of the Spirit of God; for it is foolishness to him, and he cannot understand, because it is spiritually examined. But the spiritual man judgeth all things; and he himself is judged of no man. (2 Cor. 2: 11-15)

We must keep this in mind when our relatives and friends and associates do not understand how we can refuse to keep our silence when a putative "pontiff" calls a mosque as a "jewel" or as a "sacred" place or as he prays as a Jew without mentioning the Holy Name of the Divine Redeemer (doing voluntarily what the leaders of Sanhedrin tried to force the Apostles to do, that is, to mention the "name of that man no more") and has he praises the nonexistent ability of false religions to help build the "better world." We cannot care about what others think of us. We must say and do only those things that are pleasing God, never fearing to raise our voices to defend His greater honor and glory and majesty when these are offended by one claiming to speak for the Catholic Church on earth.

The Mystical Bride of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Holy Mother Church, is as spotless and as immaculate as Our Blessed Mother herself. The Catholic Church did not give us "hootenanny" liturgies before the aftermath of the "Second" Vatican Council.

She did not give us "inter-religious dialogue" and "inter-religious" prayer services.

She gave us liturgies that came from God the Holy Ghost, not travesties that reaffirm people in the spirit of he world.

She gave us clarity of doctrine, not ambiguity and complexity that took one "clarification" after another to attempt to make "clear."

And Holy Mother Church has always mirrored Our Blessed Mother's hatred of heresy and error, which was part of the meditation written by the late Father Frederick Faber on the Sixth Dolor of Our Lady:

In the judgment of the world, and of worldly Christians, this hatred of heresy is exaggerated, bitter, contrary to moderation, indiscreet, unreasonable, aiming at too much, bigoted, intolerant, narrow, stupid, and immoral. What can we say to defend it? Nothing which they can understand. We had, therefore, better hold our peace. If we understand God, and He understands us, it is not so very hard to go through life suspected, misunderstood and unpopular. The mild self-opinionatedness of the gentle, undiscerning good will also take the world's view and condemn us; for there is a meek-loving positiveness about timid goodness which is far from God, and the instincts of whose charity is more toward those who are less for God, while its timidity is searing enough for harsh judgment. There are conversions where three-quarters of the heart stop outside the Church and only a quarter enters, and heresy can only be hated by an undivided heart. But if it is hard, it has to be borne. A man can hardly have the full use of his senses who is bent on proving to the world, God's enemy, that a thorough-going Catholic hatred of heresy is a right frame of mind. We might as well force a blind man to judge a question of color. Divine love inspheres in us a different circle of life, motive, and principle, which is not only not that of the world, but in direct enmity with it. From a worldly point of view, the craters in the moon are more explicable things than we Christians with our supernatural instinct.

We must therefore permit God the Holy Ghost to come into our souls with His bright burning flames at every moment of our lives so that we will filled with love of God and hatred of our own sins as we seek to cooperate with the graces He sends us through the loving hands of His Spouse, Our Lady, making sure to honor His Spouse as we pray as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit.

May this be our prayer this day and every day our own lives:

Come, Holy Ghost, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and enkindle in them the fire of Thy love.

V. Send forth Thy Spirit and they shall be created.

R. And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.

Let us pray. O God, Who didst instruct the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Ghost, grant us in the same Spirit to be truly wise, and ever to rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

A blessed Pentecost Sunday and Octave to you all!

P.S. There should be an original article dealing with the insane decision of the administration of President Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soeotro to make Federal aid to America's public centers of ideological mind control ("public schoos") contingent on providing access to lavatories on the basis of the "choice" of a boy or a girl to use the facility of his or her opposite gender. Absolute insanity. By the way, I don't think we're going to hear anything from Jorge Mario Bergoglio about this. Just a wild guess.

By His Gifts We Can Know, Love and Serve God As Members of His True Church

As we were away most of yesterday for much-needed chiropractic adjustments, whose costs were made possible for a few generous souls who responded to my recent brief mention of the PayPal donation button that is still in need of a bit more exercise, I am able to write a complete commentary on our reigning caesar’s latest power grab that mandates all American brainwashing centers (referred to more commonly as “public schools”) provide access to their lavatory facilities to students who believe themselves to be of a different gender than that with which they were given by God in the womb. To believe oneself to be that which he is not was considered to be a sign of mental illness or disorder in the not-too-distant past. It is now a “civil rights” issue.

Although there are many aspects to be covered in a brief commentary later today (part nine of “Jorge’s Exhortation of Self-Justification” remains a work in progress as I transcribe various entries from the Denizger manual of dogmatic theology to use in its text), suffice it to say for the moment that the members of the false opposite of the naturalist “left” never fail to govern according to their ideology.

Indeed, “leftists” are shameless in their efforts to use and abuse their governing power to impose upon the entire country their agenda of statism, perversity, and indecency. The very people who have long screamed at pro-life Americans for supposedly “imposing” their “religious views” upon others do not hesitate for a second to impose their ideological agenda as a means of establishing legal precedents that they know their hapless opponents in the organized crime family of the naturalist “right” will oppose meekly, if at all, on the merely naturalistic grounds of Federalism and states’ rights.

Making matters worse is the fact that the presumptive presidential nominee of the Republican Party, Donald John Trump, had no “opinion” when asked about it yesterday, Friday, May 13, 2016, the Feast of Saint Robert Bellarmine and the ninety-ninth anniversary of Our Lady’s first apparition to Jacinta and Francisco Marto and their cousin Lucia dos Santos in the Cova da Iria near Fatima, Portugal. Trump said that it is up to the states to “decide” that which is beyond human beings to decide. Excuse me, Mr. Trump, you don’t have an “opinion” on a matter of clear moral right and clear moral wrong? One cannot defeat Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton with such moral obtuseness.

This is just one of the reasons I am not now nor ever will be any kind of cheerleader for Donald John Trump, which does not mean that I am a cheerleader for the cravenly corrupt and amoral statist named Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton. Truth matters, and the only reason to run for president in the farce that is American electoral politics is to speak to the truth. The plain truth about what Obama/Soetoro did yesterday is that it is insane and puts further into jeopardy the protection of the bodies and souls of children who are unfortunate those children who attend America’s brainwashing centers of naturalism and moral relativism.

This is all a gigantic, diabolically-inspired and set trap.

Catholicism is the one and only foundation of personal sanctity and social order. Any Catholic who thinks that there is some kind of naturalistic “solution” or “short cut” to save the United States of America from falling into the abyss is attempting to stop the devil’s assaults with the devil’s means, naturalism. Naturalism can never—as in absolutely never—be used to stop naturalism. Nations whose laws are permitted to offend God in monstrous ways can never be made “secure” from disorder within and from enemies without their borders. Those who think otherwise had better consult Pope Pius XI’s Ubi Arcano Dei Consilio, December 22, 1922.

Well, I will write more later today.

We need Our Lady’s help.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.

Saint Boniface Martyr, pray for us.

Today's article is a republished reflection for the Vigil of Penecost, which is a day of fast for those between the ages of twenty-one and fifty-nine and a day of partial abstinence for those seven years of age or older. This does not mean that those of us over the age of fifty-nine should not fast if able to do so, only that it is not morally obligatory to fast. We should keep in mind that God is most pleased with the souls who gave Him more than the minimum required by Church law. We must give Him our all as the consecrated slaves of His Co-Equal, Co-Eternal Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

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

Yes, here is part eight of my continuing series on Amoris Laetitia.

This is a very long commentary.

The next segment will conclude the penance associated with writing these commentaries. Several spiritual reflections will be published next week after the concluding part of this series is posted, which I hope will be by the Vigil of Pentecost and the Commemoration of Saint Boniface Martyr.

Finally, the PayPal donation button is as lonely as the late Jesse White's Maytag Repairman. Non-tax-deductible financial gifts are always welcome, especially since there is a paucity of such gifts at this time. Thank you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Nereus, Achelleus, Domatilla, and Pancras, pray for us.

Spiritual Resource: Novena to God the Holy Ghost, 2016

The oldest of all of Holy Mother Church's Novenas, the Novena to God the Holy Ghost in preparation for Pentecost Sunday, May 15, 2016, began last night, May 6, 2016, the Feast of Saint John the Evangelist Before The Latin Gate within Octave of the Ascension of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The last day to pray for the Novena, of course, is on the Vigil of Pentecost, Saturday, May 15, 2015.

Given the lateness of the hour and the overnight posting of yesterday's commentary, my unexpected sequel to yesterday's commentary will be posted later today, Saturday, May 7, 2016, the Feast of Saint Stanislaus. The principal subject of the commentary will be the "conservative" statist named United States Representative Paul Davis Ryan, although the bobsey-twins of nonstop global warfare, United States Senators John Sidney McCain III (R-Arizona) and Lindsay Graham (R-North Carolina), a thirty-third degree Freemason, will certainly get a most dishonorable mention or two.

Although I have expressed my own reservations about Donald John Trump, I have given him credit for exposing the farce that is the supposed "opposition" political party of the false opposite of the naturalist "right. It is truly remarkable to see how bold petty elitists such as Paul Davis Ryan head for the tall grass when faced with even the possibility that their donor-funded lives of power and influence might be overturned in response to widespread public outrage. I have just a few things more to say about these petty little enablers of statism and constant warfare before returning to the drudgery of Amoris Laetitia.

Our Lady, Queen of the Holy Apostles, pray for us.

Saint Stanislaus, pray for us.

Exposing the Farce Once and For All

(The reality of a lack of financial resources has caused me to drastically curtail the monthly allotment of gigabytes for which I must pay a good deal of money. This means that I must limit my time online more than ever before. I have, however, taken the time to correct typographical errors in today's article, which will be followed by an unexpected sequel tomorrow.)

Those who have read the political commentaries that have been posted on this site since last summer (as well as the ones that I have written in the past) will not be surprised to learn that this article is not a celebration of the current election cycle. As a political scientist, I give credit where credit is due, and Donald John Trump has accomplished a political feat that has just thrown out every campaign “playbook” ever written.

As a Catholic, though, I weep for our nation when considering the debt that we owe God for our sins and that it has come to pass in these our times that the presidential candidates of the two major organized crime families of naturalism in the United States of America are both secular humanists who are clueless about the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law.

Part eight of my continuing series on Amoris Laetitia should appear by tomorrow. Part nine will conclude the series, which has been truly penitential.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint John the Evangelist, pray for us.

Revised: Christ The King Takes His Throne In Heaven

[A commentary about Jorge's meeting with President Donald John Trump is being written. However, the hour is much too late to complete it. I should have done by late today. Thank you.]

Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's forty days' of teaching the Apostles after his glorious Resurrection from the dead on Easter Sunday culminated this very day, Ascension Thursday, as He instructed the Eleven as follows before going up into Heaven from Mount Olivet at whose foot He had suffered His Agony in the Garden six weeks before as Saints Peter, James and John slumbered:

"And the eleven disciples went into Galilee, unto the mountain where Jesus had appointed them. And seeing him they adored: but some doubted. And Jesus coming, spoke to them, saying: All power is given to me in heaven and in earth. Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world." (Matthew 28: 16-20.)

 

 'There is no "expiration" date on this command. Indeed, the commentary in the Bishop Richard Challoner version of the Douay-Rheims Bible explains that the command is in force until Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ comes in glory on the Last Day to judge the living and the dead and that His Church could never go astray, meaning, of course, that it is impossible for the Catholic Church to give any impression at all that God is pleased with false religions such as Mohammedanism and Talmudic Judaism, which is what the conciliar "popes" have done consistently in the past fifty years, having reached the point of complete absurdity now under Jorge Mario Bergoglio:

18 "All power"... See here the warrant and commission of the apostles and their successors, the bishops and pastors of Christ's church. He received from his Father all power in heaven and in earth: and in virtue of this power, he sends them (even as his Father sent him, St. John 20. 21) to teach and disciple, not one, but all nations; and instruct them in all truths: and that he may assist them effectually in the execution of this commission, he promises to be with them, not for three or four hundred years only, but all days, even to the consummation of the world. How then could the Catholic Church ever go astray; having always with her pastors, as is here promised, Christ himself, who is the way, the truth, and the life. St. John 14."

The Catholic Church can never go astray. She is infallible. She does not give us any "new ecclesiology" or "hermeneutic of continuity and discontinuity" to deconstruct the meaning of dogmatic truth, thus attacking the essence of the nature of God Himself, or false ecumenism. Her pastors do not esteem the symbols and values and places of false religions and they do not engage in "inter-religious" "prayer" services. Her pastors do not teach that false religions have a "right" from God to propagate their false beliefs publicly and they do not praise those false beliefs for being "able" to "contribute" to the building of a "better" world. Pastors of the Catholic Church insist always and at all times that Catholicism is the one and only foundation of personal and social order with no equivocation, uncertainty, ambiguity or obscurity of any kind. As Pope Pius XI noted in Mortalium Animos, January 6, 1928, there is need to "strain" to "find" Catholicism in the pronouncements made by Holy Mother Church:

"For the teaching authority of the Church, which in the divine wisdom was constituted on earth in order that revealed doctrines might remain intact for ever, and that they might be brought with ease and security to the knowledge of men, and which is daily exercised through the Roman Pontiff and the Bishops who are in communion with him, has also the office of defining, when it sees fit, any truth with solemn rites and decrees, whenever this is necessary either to oppose the errors or the attacks of heretics, or more clearly and in greater detail to stamp the minds of the faithful with the articles of sacred doctrine which have been explained. " (Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos, January 6, 1928.)

How has the integrity of the doctrine of the First Commandment been stamped on "minds of the faithful" by the words and deeds of the conciliar "popes"?

Christ the King has taken His throne in Heaven. We must ascend with Him in our thoughts and prayers at all times as we refuse to have our minds and hearts poisoned by the words and the deeds of the false shepherds of the counterfeit church of conciliarism who dare to blaspheme God so regularly and so openly and/or who refuse to open their mouths in defense of the honor and majesty and glory of God when He is so blasphemed and offended.

As the angel made clear to the Eleven as they looked into the sky as Our Lord disappeared from their sight on this day, there is work for us to do:

"They therefore who were come together, asked him, saying: Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? But he said to them: It is not for you to know the times or moments, which the Father hath put in his own power: But you shall receive the power of the Holy Ghost coming upon you, and you shall be witnesses unto me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and even to the uttermost part of the earth. And when he had said these things, while they looked on, he was raised up: and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they were beholding him going up to heaven, behold two men stood by them in white garments. " Who also said: Ye men of Galilee, why stand you looking up to heaven? This Jesus who is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come, as you have seen him going into heaven. Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount that is called Olivet, which is nigh Jerusalem, within a sabbath day's journey. And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode Peter and John, James and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James of Alpheus, and Simon Zelotes, and Jude the brother of James. All these were persevering with one mind in prayer with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren." (Acts 1: 6-14.)

Yes, we can't stand around all day long looking into the sky. There is work for us to do before Our Lord comes for us at the moment of our own Particular Judgments, which can come at any hour and on any day, and at the end of the world to judge the living and the dead.

The work that we have to do is to sanctify and to save our immortal souls as members of the Catholic Church, work that requires us to be attentive to the graces that were won for us on the wood of the Holy Cross by the shedding of every single drop of Our Blessed Lord Saviour Jesus Christ's Most Precious Blood and the flow into our hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces. And to cooperate with the graces that Our Lady sends we must be fortified in prayer, which is one of the reasons that we must keep most assiduously the first Novena in the history of the Church, the Novena to God the Holy Ghost. Our Lady was separated from her Divine Son when He Ascended to Heaven. She was united to Him, however, by means of her reception of His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in Holy Communion. She was united to the Apostles and the others who prayed in the same Upper Room where He had instituted the Holy Priesthood and the Holy Eucharist at the Last Supper on Maundy Thursday. She is united to us. She is our Blessed Mother. We need to ask her for all the graces that we need to save and to sanctify our souls as we eschew worldliness, which is the theme of today's substantially revised article, and as we refuse to participate in the fraud of a false religion, conciliarism, that is replete with daily outrages given to her Divine Son, starting with the outrage that is the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo service, and as we make much reparation for our sins and those of the whole world as the consecrated slaves of her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart.

A blessed Feast of the Ascension of Our Lord Jesus Christ to you all.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Pope Saint Gregory VII, whose feast is suppressed this year, pray for us.

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

Wednesday, May 4, 2016, Update: Feast of Saint Monica, Commemoration of the Vigil of the Ascension of Our Lord and Rogation Day:

Work on part eight of "Jorge's Exhortation of Self-Justification Before Men" is about forty percent completed at this time. However, I do want to work on a post-Indiana Primary commentary before returning to the penitential work that is involved with dissecting Amoris Laetitia. As the hour, past Midnight, is too late to do justice even to a short political commentary, I will wait until later today to write a brief reiteration of points made so many times before about the farce of naturalism.

While the theatrical spectacle of the next six months, four days is bound to be entertaining, nothing that happens between now and Tuesday, November 8, 2016, will involve any discussion of what truly ills the Western world, which is simply suffering from the effects of the Protestant Revolution's overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King that will not be remedied until a true pope is restored to the Throne of Saint Peter and then fulfills Our Lady's Fatima Message for the proper consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart by all of the world's bishops.

No matter the drama of the moment, this current election will not revolve around the pursuit of the common good founded in any kind of respect for the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law. It will revolve around which candidate is better able to promote himself as the supposed guarantor of economic prosperity. In other words, it's all about the money, the money, and the money. It always has been this way, and the only difference this year is that there is anger against the political establishment that has arisen because its scions have used laws to protect themselves and their privileges at the expense of voters. While the anger is understandable, the root cause of our problems is not about who holds political power. It is about the failure of the political elites and the citizens to understand that nations can never realize material prosperity while pursuing that which is opposed to the peace and happiness of eternity.

Saint Monica, pray for us!

Monday, May 2, 2016: Here is part seven of what should be a nine part series for the twelve people or so who are still reading this site.

Thank you for your patience. I do hope to have part eight done within a day or two.

Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Athanasius, pray for us.

Total Consecration to Our Lady

Although I was once known for producing a prodigious number of articles each month, it appears as though the days of prolific writing are behind me. Thus it is that intervening events have delayed part seven of "Jorge's Exhortation of Self-Justification Before Men." Work continues. Stay tuned!

On this first day of the month of May, the month of Our Lady, which is the Feast of Saints Philip and James and the Commemoration of the Fifth Sunday after Easter, I am republishing a reflection on Total Consecration to the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary that was first published in the printed pages of Christ or Chaos fifteen years ago this month.

Actually, this reflection was first written sixteen years ago for use for a priest in the conciliar structures to be distributed to his parishioners. Although there is absolutely nothing profound contained in this reflection, I do hope that it helps to serve as a modest introduction to the topic of total consecration to Our Lady for those who are unfamiliar with the benefits that accrue to those who enslave themselves to her Divine Son through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.

Saints Philip and James, pray for us.
