Yesterday was Sexagesima Sunday and the Commemoration of the great Saint John Bosco, to whom we are very devoted.
Saint John Bosco stands a rebuke to everything that manner in which the conciliar revolutionaries refuse to seek converts to what they think is the Catholic Church and the manner in which they reaffirm unrepentant sinners in lives that could lead them to Hell for all eternity if they do not go to Confession and amend their lives.
This brief reflection, written about four or five years ago, I believe, is an effort to capture the spirit of this magnificent teacher of the young, mystic and zealous apostle of souls.
As work on "Painting the Vatican Walls Red" (which is a working title as it stands now) involves a great deal of documentation, which must be inserted into the body of my own text, I am simply going to do what I can do on the piece each day until it is done. About eight hours yesterday were devoted to the article, which I believe will make a contribution to the few readers who remain on this website.
Depending upon when the results of the circus in Iowa are reported, there might be an appropriately brief commentary on the Iowa Caucuses. It was twenty years ago now that I spoke as a surrogate speaker for Patrick Joseph Buchanan to two different groups of several thousand people at Hempstead High School in Dubuque, Iowa, which served as the caucus headquarters for the evening of Monday, February 12, 1996.
Although I had given a presentation the night before at the other side of the state, Sioux City, Iowa, where I had taught at Morningside Colllege in the 1992-1993 academic year and returned frequently to speak in the years thereafter up to December 7, 2005, campaign official Terence Jeffrey, now the editor-in-chief of the Cybercast News Service, told me once I had arrived back in Des Moines on February 12, 1996, that I was to drive to Dubuque to speak at the caucuses there. It was quite an experience, but I do not regret my decision four years later to forego any further involvement in electoral politics. There was much more important work to do to defend the Social Reign of Christ the King, and the deck is very much stacked against Our King in the realm of electoral politics.
Nevertheless however, it was quite an experience for a political science professor and columnist to be involved in a presidential campaign ten years after running for lieutenant governor of the State of New York on the Right to Life Party line.
We do not need armies of campaigners for candidates, though. We need armies of good soldiers of Christ the King who are willing to fight the good fight of the faith to save their own souls and to plant the seeds for the conversion of others and their nations to the true Faith, especially by placing their efforts under the protection of Our Lady by keeping close to her at all times through her Most Holy Rosary.
Pray for the conversion of all men to the Catholic Faith!
Vivat Christus Rex!
Viva Cristo Rey!
