Memento Homo, Quia Pulvis Es, Et in Pulverem Reverteris

[Several readers wrote to me to correct two typographical errors in the title of this reflection. One error was to type "homa" when I meant to "type" as I did last year, and the second error was to omit the Latin word "es" after "pulvis." Lenten humiliation has begun! I just did not see the errors until they were pointed out to me, presuming that everything was fine. Perhaps I should go on my own site more perfectly. Better yet, perhaps I should make a Lenten resolution to be a better proofreader! My apologies for the two errors.]

Our annual Lenten journey into the desert has commenced anew. Deo gratias!

This is the time of penance. This is the time to withdraw from the world. This is the time to be earnest about relying upon the ineffable graces that were won for us by the shedding of every single drop of the Most Precious Blood of Our Divine Redeemer, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, during His Passion and Death and that flow into our sous through the loving hands of His Most Blessed Mother, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces.

This period of six weeks, four days until Easter Sunday (six weeks, three and one-half days until the Easter Vigil) is nearly one-ninth of an entire calendar year. May we beg Our Lady to help us make the best Lent of our lives as we do not know if it will be our last. Indeed, we do not know whether we will live to see Easter Sunday in this life on Sunday, April 12, 2020.

Naturally Absurd, part two, should appear by the First Sunday of Lent, March 1, 2020, or Monday, March 2, 2020, as I am in the process of editing To Live in Light in Eternity,  Volume 2. Please seeTo Live in Light of Eternity for ordering information about volume one.

Our Lady of Dolors, pray for us.

Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz Feels the "Burn," Bernie

It was almost immediately after I had posted Naturally Absurd, part one which underwent some minor editorial revisions on Tuesday, February 25, 2020, the Feast of Saint Matthias, that I learned about the interview that Bernard John Sanders had posted on the Sunday, February 23, 2020, edition of 60 Minutes.

Although the hour was late and this current commentary had to wait until after our family Rosary and night prayers, the season of penance is nearly upon us, and I decided to forge ahead with this “rapid response” to Sanders’ remarks about the mass murdering Communist dictator  and Catholic apostate named Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Matthias, pray for us.

Naturally Absurd, part one

Although very late in the day on Quinqugesima Sunday, I am able to present to you part one of “Naturally Absurd,” which, according to my Word text indicator, runs about forty pages, although I did do some editing of the text once I had pasted into the Drupal platform on which site has existed for five and one-half years after the Adobe Acrobat platform became unworkable.

Part one of this commentary offers some commentaries on the nefarious no-goodniks who are seeking the presidential nomination of the organized crime family of the false opposite of the naturalist “left.” Its text is filled with lots and lots of facts. However, the principal purpose of this commentary and the one that will follow it by the end of this coming week is to help the few remaining readers of this website not to be agitated in the midst of the current election cycle and thus to be blinded to the supernatural realities that we are only witnessing the logical devolution of a system founded on premises that left no place for Christ the King and His true Church in its official public life and operation.

False premises lead to bad results.



Naturalism engenders more naturalism, and the failure of one type of naturalism to stop the evils and/or to remedy the “flaws” of another type of naturalism results in the triumph of totalitarian statism, which is being championed by the atheist Jew from Vermont by way of Brooklyn, New York, Bernard John Sanders, not that those who oppose Sanders are that much different.

The way out?

Our Lady’s Most Holy Rosary.

Our Lady’s Brown Scapular of Mount Carmel.

Our Lady’s Miraculous Medal.

Total Consecration to Our Lord through the Sorrowful  and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Jorge's Querida Amazonia: Another Modernist Primer

Time that had been blocked out to write my final lengthy commentary on the sideshows of naturalism for a few months had to be used in the past three days to produce this lengthy monograph that highlights a few of the themes contained in Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s latest Modernist primer, Querida Amazonia.

The next original commentary on this site might not be posted until Saturday, February 22, 2020, the Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter in Antioch. However, the work on it that was suspended to produce the current commentary will commence later today.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Jorge and His Fiends Accept Fables and Myths While Disparaging Cathollic Truths

The late Joseph Henry Garagiola, Sr., related an anecdote about his lifelong friend, Lawrence Peter Berra, with whom he had grown up in The Hill section of St. Louis, Missouri, when he, Garagiola, appeared on The Jack Paar Show on Friday, October 2, 1964, on the National Broadcasting Company television network. The Jack Paar Progam was a weekly interview program that aired on Friday nights from 10:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

On the Feast of the Apparition of Our Lady of Lourdes

Today is the one hundred sixty-second 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. 

A new commentary that has nothing to do with the longer one that will not be ready for publication until a week form today will be posted in a short while after this republished reflection. 

Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.

Saint Bernardette Soubiros, pray for us.

On Seputagesima Sunday (2020)

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 this site's next original article, which should appear by Wednesday, February 12, 2020, the Feast of the Seven Holy Founders of the Order of Servites.

Our Lady of Dolors, pray for us.

Saint Cyril of Alexandria, pray for us.

Saint Appolonnia, pray for us.

As a supplement to the timely reprise about Willard Mitt Romney that I posed a few days ago, I am appending below a list of commmentaries about the sanctimonious flip-flopper, hyprocrite and big state "conservative" who as born in Michigan, ater went to graduate school at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts before establishing a residence in the mothership of the false, American ethnocentric religion called Mormonism, the State of Utah. The videos and articles listed below provide interested readers in matertial about this self-righteous seputagenara whose false religion teaches that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and the adversary are “spirit brothers":  A Case Against Obama and Romney, part 1A Case Against Obama and Romney part 2, and A Case Against Obama and Romney part 3A Case Against Obama and Romney, part fourA Case Against Obama and Romney, part fiveA Case Against Obama and Romney, part sixA Case Against Obama and Romney part seven and A Case Against Obama and Romney, part eight and the following, partial listing of articles from 2011 to the present:

A Timely Reprise: Flip-Flopping, Carpetbagging Willard Mitt Romney's Self-Serving Hypocrisy

Although I intend to write about recent events in Washington, District of Columbia, including today’s so-called “National Prayer Breakfast” that is a celebration of political ecumenism and religious indifferentism whose very existence is a testament of the corrupt nature of the American founding principles, I thought that it would be most instructive to republish an article from thirteen months ago that focused on the flip-flopping, carpet-bagging, self-righteous, sanctimonious, “my religion guides my life” Willard Mitt Romney. This republished article is simply being republished as it appeared last year. Readers who are interested will see the direct relevance to Romney’s most recent exercise in preening and posturing.

Again, I simply will not have the time to address some of the events that have taken place in recent days, and I do intend to have a thing or two to say about Athanasius Schenider’s asking his “pope” to rebuke the German “bishops” for their embrace of “synodality,” which the  “pope” has been advocating since shortly after he was elevated to be the universal public face of apostasy on March 13, 2013. This is all so truly maddening.

Anyhow, I hope to have “We Are Governed by Morons” published by Tuesday or, at the latest, Wednesday, of next week. Thank you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Romuald, pray for us.

Living at a Time When Confusion and Contradiction Pass for "Progress"

Here is another commentary that will keep the “vast” readership of the site busy for a few days.

The commentary discusses President Donald John Trump’s address to the March for Life on Friday, January 24, 2020, the Feast of Saint Timothy.

Here is an outline of the article in order to assist you in digesting its long text:

  1. The Sincerity of President Trump’s Opposition to Surgical Baby-Killing
  2. An Analysis of President Trump’s January 24, 2020 Address to the March for Life
  3. The March for Life, Aided by the Conciliar “Bishops,” Seeks a “Consensus”
  4. The Potomac Flows into the Tiber—and Back Again
  5. Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s Willful Ignorance
  6. Concluding Remarks

As is usually the case with commentaries such as this one, I have tried to be thorough while making all necessary qualifications.

I am going to "disappear" for a while as I finalize Volume 2 of To Live in Light of Eternity.

A blessed Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary to you all.

On the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary (2020)

Today is the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary, always the humble handmaid of the Lord who humbled herself this day, the last day of Christmastide, which ends after Holy Mass today, by submitting to the rituals of the law although she was not in need of such a ritualistic purification because of her Perpetual Virginity.

This is the day that Our Lady presented her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, in the same Temple where He would be found twelve years later answering questions of the rabbis, the same Temple whose curtain would be torn in two from top to bottom as He breathed His last on the wood of the Holy Cross to redeem us, thereby signifying the permanent end of the Old Covenant and the supersession of Judaism by Catholicism as the true religion. The aged Simeon, who waited patiently every day in the Temple for the fulfillment of the promise that God had made to him, that he would not die before his eyes had seen and his arms had beheld the Messiah, sent the first Sword of Sorrow plunging through Our Lady's Sorrowful and and Immaculate Heart when he prophesied that the Child he beheld would be destined for the rise and for the fall of man, a sign to be opposed, a Sign of Contradiction. We must never fear to be signs of contradiction in our own lives in imitation of the THE Sign of Contradiction, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, as He hung on the wood of the Holy Cross to redeem us as he was mocked and reviled by the very people from whose stock He had taken His Sacred Humanity.

We must be willing to suffer all manner of calumny and humiliation for the many times that we have preferred human respect to fidelity to Our Lord, for the many times we have refused to call upon Our Lady's maternal intercession, for the many times we have refused to "take sides," especially in our day by refusing to reject conciliarism and its ravenous wolves once and for all.

A very long commentary will be posted shortly  after the republication of this reflection.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us!
