Revised: Model of Conversion: Saint Paul

Today is the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul the Apostle and the Commemoration of Saint Peter.

Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ personally intervened to effect the conversion of the fire-breathing hater and persecutor of Catholics, Saul of Tarsus. By so doing, of course, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity made Man in His Most Blessed Mother's Virginal and Immaculate Womb by the power of the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, violated the counterfeit church of conciliarism's prohibition of proselytism. Saul of Tarsus did not seek out Our Lord, but was sought out by Him so that he would become Saint Paul, the Apostle to the Gentiles one of twin pillars of the Church of Rome along with the first pope himself, Saint Peter the Apostle.

Work on the next few articles continues as I write text and insert documentary material with their hyperlinks. This is a time-consuming process. However, one of those articles should, I hope and pray, be ready for posting by tomorrow morning.

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

Saint Paul, pray for us.

Saint Peter, pray for us.

Revised: Preparing for Lenten Penances

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.

Work continues on no less than three commentaries, which may be published in sequence starting tomorrow as was the case last week when three original commentaries were posted, followed by a revised commentary this past Friday.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Timothy, pray for us.

Revised: In the Face of the Daily Slaughter of the Preborn

Today’s article has been revised in various places to commemorate the forty-third anniversary of the decisions of the Supreme Court in the cases of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, contains an excerpt from an allocution given by Pope Pius XII that reminded Catholics they are never to support a single, solitary exception to the inviolability of innocent human life. Within the allocution is a moving story about a mother who sacrificed her own life in 1905 rather than to kill the child in her womb. The mother’s prayers from eternity won the daughter to whom she gave life shortly before she, the mother, died to the religious life. This is the sort of sacrifice that is foreign to the mind of Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

We pray in reparation today for the ongoing chemical and surgical slaughter of the preborn in the United States of America and around the world.

An additional commentary on this sad anniversary will be posted by tomorrow morning. Given the overnight postings of the past three articles, work on that article must be suspended until later today, Friday, January 22, 2016, the Feast of Saints Vincent and Anastasius.

We pray for the restoration of the Social Reign of Christ the King and of Our Lady, Immaculate Queen, as the fruit of the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us.

Saints Vincent and Anastasius, pray for us.

Death Panels Really Exist

Although it has been a while since I have written a commentary on the medical industry's manufactured, money-making myth of "brain death," several stories in the past month have made it timely to do so once again. I hope that this commentary will be of assistance to newer readers of this site as well as readers of longstanding who may have forgotten the lies that are told to us so casually by so many "health care professionals" and that have been endorsed by most of the lords of conciliarism.

I will return to Jorge in two days. Tomorrow's commentary will focus on the forty-third anniversary of the decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States of America in the cases of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Agnes, pray for us.

Antichrist's Interchangeable Spare Parts, part two: False Opposites Within False Opposites

This commentary will please very few people who are caught up in the agitation of the moment, and it is not an exhaustive analysis of each of the individuals running for the presidential nomination of the organized crime family of the false opposite of the naturalist “right.” It is an effort to demonstrate that those running for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination are merely false opposites within false opposites as there is more agreement among them than most people are ready to understand or accept.

Finally, lest I be accused of wanting to elect Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton by my criticism of the naturalists of the “right,” permit me once more to remind readers, especially those who are younger and for whom this election may be the first one they have followed, that I wrote over a hundred articles for The Wanderer criticizing the Clinton gang of criminals during their time inhabiting the White House. One of those articles, written in early-1994, I believe, was partially responsible for putting pressure on the University of Dayton, which is run by the Marianist Fathers, to disinvite the then First Lady from speaking there even before she could accept or decline the invitation. To criticize the naturalists of the false opposite of the “right” is not to indemnify those of the false opposite of the “left.”

My work is about stating the simple truth that all must fall apart absent Christ the King, and there is no putting Humpty Dumpty back together again with the very thing that pushed him over the wall, naturalism. One cannot fight naturalism with naturalism. One can only fight naturalism with Catholicism by relying upon the maternal intercession of Our Lady, especially by means of her Most Holy Rosary and by being the consecrated slave of her Divine Son, Christ the King, through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Fabian and Sebastian, pray for us.

Credo in Unum Deum, part three: Too Obstinate to Sacrifice to Idols or to Surrender to False Spirits

Jorge has been a busy little demon in recent days, requiring an overnight posting to deal with just a bit of his dirty work, which is the work of the one who drives him, the adversary.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Marius, Martha, Saints Audifax, and Abachum, pray for us.

Saint Canute IV, King of Denmark, pray for us.

Saint Wulstan, pray for us.

January 17, 2016, Update: Second Sunday after the Epiphany and the Commemoration of Saint Antony of the Desert

While I thank you for checking this website today, the work on my next commentary, which is turning out to be a missive on the quadrennial farce that is a presidential election cycle, is proceeding methodically.

As I will not be writing as much about this farce of naturalism as I have in past election cycles, I want to make the commentary a sort of “one-stop shopping” reference point to explain that each of the naturalists seeking the presidential nomination of the organized crime family of the naturalist “right” is at variance with multiple precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law, starting with the fact that each and every single one of them, including three of the men (Marco Rubio, Christopher Christie, John Ellis Bush) who debated in the “varsity” or “main event” debate on Thursday, January 14, 2016, the Feast of Saint Hilary of Poitiers, and the Commemoration of Saint Felix of Nola, who are practicing what passes for Catholicism in the conciliar structures is clueless about First and Last Things. Clueless. 

The completion of the article that consumed the entirety of my time yesterday, Saturday, January 16, 2016, the Feast of Pope Saint Marcellus I, will be delayed by a day or two more as the Argentine Apostate, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, is going to the Rome Synagogue to commemorate the thirtieth anniversary of “Saint” John Paul II’s becoming the first conciliar “pope” to pay his obeisance to the counterfeit church of conciliarism’s Talmudic masters. As was the case six years ago when Joseph Alois Ratzinger visited the Rome Synagogue on Sunday, January 18, 2010 (see Saint Peter and Anti-Peter), Bergoglio is not going there to see the unconditional conversion of the Jews with urgency. No, Jorge will be reaffirming Jews in their false religion as he states once again what he wrote in Evangelii Gaudium, November 26, 2013, namely, that the Old Covenant has never been abrogated and is forever enduring. He is a heretic.

Who says so?

Well, let’s try Pope Pius XII for one:

28.That He completed His work on the gibbet of the Cross is the unanimous teaching of the holy Fathers who assert that the Church was born from the side of our Savior on the Cross like a new Eve, mother of all the living. [28] "And it is now," says the great St. Ambrose, speaking of the pierced side of Christ, "that it is built, it is now that it is formed, it is now that is .... molded, it is now that it is created . . . Now it is that arises a spiritual house, a holy priesthood." [29] One who reverently examines this venerable teaching will easily discover the reasons on which it is based.

29.And first of all, by the death of our Redeemer, the New Testament took the place of the Old Law which had been abolished; then the Law of Christ together with its mysteries, enactments, institutions, and sacred rites was ratified for the whole world in the blood of Jesus Christ. For, while our Divine Savior was preaching in a restricted area -- He was not sent but to the sheep that were lost of the house of Israel [30] -the Law and the Gospel were together in force; [31] but on the gibbet of his death Jesus made void the Law with its decrees, [32] fastened the handwriting of the Old Testament to the Cross, [33] establishing the New Testament in His blood shed for the whole human race. [34] "To such an extent, then," says St. Leo the Great, speaking of the Cross of our Lord, "was there effected a transfer from the Law to the Gospel, from the Synagogue to the Church, from many sacrifices to one Victim, that, as our Lord expired, that mystical veil which shut off the innermost part of the temple and its sacred secret was rent violently from top to bottom." [35]

30. On the Cross then the Old Law died, soon to be buried and to be a bearer of death, [36] in order to give way to the New Testament of which Christ had chosen the Apostles as qualified ministers; [37] and although He had been constituted the Head of the whole human family in the womb of the Blessed Virgin, it is by the power of the Cross that our Savior exercises fully the office itself of Head in His Church. "For it was through His triumph on the Cross," according to the teaching of the Angelic and Common Doctor, "that He won power and dominion over the gentiles"; [38] by that same victory He increased the immense treasure of graces, which, as He reigns in glory in heaven, He lavishes continually on His mortal members it was by His blood shed on the Cross that God's anger was averted and that all the heavenly gifts, especially the spiritual graces of the New and Eternal Testament, could then flow from the fountains of our Savior for the salvation of men, of the faithful above all; it was on the tree of the Cross, finally, that He entered into possession of His Church, that is, of all the members of His Mystical Body; for they would not have been united to this Mystical Body. (Pope Pius XII, Mystici Corporis, June 29, 1943.)

There is really nothing new in the conciliar universe. However, I will complete a commentary on the false “pope’s” visit to the Rome Synagogue before posting the long political commentary assuming that the Vatican website posts Jorge’s obeisance, which will include references to Nostra Aetate, October 28, 1965, the Feast of Saints Simon and Jude, and condemnations of anti-Semitism, in a timely manner.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Anthony of the Desert, pray for us.

Antichrist's Interchangeable Spare Parts, Part 1

Today’s commentary focuses a bit on the reigning caesar’s unapologetic defense of his “transformational agenda,” which is doing to the Constitution of the United States of America what Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s own “transformational agenda” of false mercy is doing to the last remaining vestiges of recognizable Catholicism in his false religious sect. Most of the commentary is designed to provide some perspective to the fact that the two major figures of the world at this time, Obama/Soetoro and Bergoglio, are just the ultimate end products of the false premises upon which their respective belief systems are founded.

Part two of this commentary will focus on the supposed “response” given to the reigning caesar’s speech by South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, whose “respect” for so-called “modern marriages” signals yet again that that establishment Republicans have made their peace with associating the word “marriage” with the sin of Sodom.

Obama/Soetoro’s agenda is driven by his Eurosocialist ideology that requires a “soft” totalitarianism to implement while the masses are diverted by bread and circuses.

The agenda of the establishment members of the false opposite of the naturalist “right” is driven by the weather vanes of focus-groups.

We need Our Lady’s help more than ever before.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Hilary of Poitiers, pray for us.

Saint Felix of Nola, pray for us.

Revised: From Nazareth We Come, In Nazareth We Must Live

Today, the Sunday within the Octave of the Epiphany, is the Feast of the Holy Family of Nazareth.

Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ chose to become Man in His Most Blessed Mother's Virginal and Immaculate Womb by the power of the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, and place Himself, the Co-Equal and Co-Eternal Son of God the Father, under subjection to mere creatures His Most Blessed Mother, the fairest flower of our race, and to Good Saint Joseph, his foster-father. The subjection of the God-Man to the authority of His Most Blessed Mother and his foster-father, whom He had chosen from all eternity to provide Him with the earthly love and care and stewardship of a father seeking only to please God with his every thought, word an deed, teaches us that we, who came from families and who, in many instances, are raising families of our own, must be subject to all legitimate authority, duly constituted, in all things that do not pertain to sinful commands.

Children are supposed to learn this subjection in the household from their tenderest days, seeing in their fathers the image of Saint Joseph and in their mothers the image of Our Lady. Children are supposed to realize that God in the very Flesh obeyed His creatures in the Holy Family of Nazareth. So must they.

Parents must, for their part, foster an atmosphere within the family of selflessness, charity, forgiveness and joy, centering the family's life on daily assistance at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass (if at all possible), regular time spent in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament, the daily recitation of Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary, supplications to Our Lady's Most Chaste Spouse, Saint Joseph, home enthronement to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Total Consecration to Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the same Immaculate Heart of Mary, Scriptural reading and family reading time, especially about the lives of the saints, and a refusal to participate in the rot of popular culture. This requires sacrifice and the willingness to be misunderstood, calumniated and rejected even by one's own family members as we protect our children from those cultural currents that come from the devil and are designed to lead each of us to Hell for all eternity.

To eschew worldliness one must be ready to embrace the Holy Poverty of the Holy Family of Nazareth, detaching oneself from the material acquisitiveness of our consumer society, shaped by Judeo-Calvinist materialism, and to live in light of First Things and Last Things as we week to acquire the only thing that matters: Sanctifying Grace in this life and eternal life in the glory of the Beatific Vision of Father, Son and Holy Ghost in Heaven.

Finally, yes, the next article is nearly completion. Thanks for your patience.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, we love you, save souls!

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, pray for us now and in death's agony.

A blessed Feast of the Holy Family of Nazareth to you all.
