"Perhaps You Have Not Met A Catholic Bishop Before"

This is the Third Sunday after Pentecost, that is, Sunday within the Octave of the Feast of Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. The Feast of Saint Basil the Great, the fearless foe of Arianism, is commemorated today.

Today's republished article, which was written five years ago now and revised a little last night after it became clear that the next original article on this site was not going to be completed for posting this morning (there are only so many hours in the day, and staying up late, which I do on occasion, is beyond my ability to do on a regular basis any longer), attempts to draw comparisons between Saint Basil the Great's battles with the Arians and our own battles with the lords of the counterfeit church of conciliarism and their apologists. I had forgotten, prior to re-reading the article, just how many little nuggets from Dom Prosper Gueranger's The Liturgical Year are contained in its text. Here is one just nugget:

"Peace is just what Basil desired as much as anybody; but the peace for which he would give his life could be only that true peace left to the Church by our Lord. What he so vigorously exacted on the grounds of faith proceeded solely from his very love of peace. And therefore, as he himself tells us, he absolutely refused to enter into communion with those narrow-minded men who dread nothing so much as a clear, precise expression of dogma; in his eyes their captious formulas and ungraspable shiftings were but the action of hypocrites, in whose company he would scorn to approach God's altar. As to those miserably misled, 'Let the faith of our fathers be proposed to them with all tenderness and charity; if they will assent thereunto, let us receive them into our midst; in other cases, let us dwell with ourselves alone, regardless of numbers; and let us keep aloof from equivocating souls, who are not possessed of that simplicity without guile, indispensably required in the early days of the Gospel from all who would approach to the the faith. The believers, so it is written, had but one heart and one soul. Let those, therefore, who would reproach us for not desiring pacification, mark well who are the real authors of the disturbance and so not point the question of reconciliation on our side any more.'"(Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., The Liturgical Year.)

The authors of disturbance today are not those of us who point out the errors and blasphemes and sacrileges of the conciliar "popes," including Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis, but those who are silent about and/or enable these offenses, a silence that prevails these days among so many "conservative" and "traditionally-minded" priests and presbyters in the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism.

By the way, I will be writing a series of commentaries on Jorge's forthcoming pantheism ecocyclical. The series will take as long as is necessary to complete. The first part will provide an overview, and will be followed by relatively short commentaries on the ecocyclical's text. This is not a project that I look forward to undertaking. Quite the contrary is true. It is something that I dread. However, penance is what I need, and Jorge is an instrument to provide me with penance by which I can seek to make more reparation for my sins as the consecrated slave of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The next article, though, deals with a theme that I have repeated on this site endlessly while angering so many Catholics all across the vast spectrum of the ecclesiatical divide: the American political system is a complete and total farce of Protestantism and Judeo-Masonry. "Left" or "right" makes no difference as to what gets done in the artificial city built on a swamp and designed to conform to a Masonic grid, Washington, District of Columbia. The Congressional leadership of the organized crime family of the false opposite of the naturalist "right" have promised to bail out ObamaDeathCare if the Supreme Court of the United States of America rules against subsidies that are not authorized by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. These same reprobates are also trying to help Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro give away more and more of American national sovereignty in the name of creating a "Pacific Union," thus helping to solidify One World Governance in fact if not in name. Ah, Jorge's name for One World Governance is "globality solidarity," and you will be hearing utter that phrase a lot in the coming weeks and months. This is the time of Antichrist, and if anyone thinks he is going to "vote" his way out of this mess, well, all I can do is continue being the "ant" at the picnic as things are going to worse and worse, not better, until there is the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and that will not come about at the ballot box, I can assure you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Basil the Great, pray for us.

Saint Anthony, Hammer of Heretics, Help Us To Find Our Way Home to Heaven

This my republished reflection on the life and the work of our dear Saint Anthony, the hammer of heretics who desired to die a martyr's death in an effort to convert Mohammedans following his transfer from the Order of Saint Augustine to the Order of Friars Minor. It was not God's Holy Will for Saint Anthony to die a martyr's death as he became ill upon arriving in Morocco and was then led as a result of shipwreck away from his native Portugal to Sicily, and from there to Italy, where his fame as a preacher and miracle worker began.

Saint Anthony lived for only thirty-six years, teaching us that it is not the length of the years that matter. No, what matters to God is how we use the time given to us this very day, which could be our own last day on the face of this earth before our Particular Judgment, to know, love, and serve Him as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively through the Catholic Church. God is merciful to those of us who have sinned much by giving us length of years so that we might use our time well to make much reparation to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary for our sins. Saint Anthony's work on earth was done when he was just thirty-six years old, whereupon his work for us in Heaven commenced.

Dear, dear Saint Anthony, help us to find our way to Heaven, especially by being as devoted to the Most Blessed Sacrament and to the Mother of God as you were here on earth.

Work on the next original article has begun. Look for it tomorrow, Sunday, June 14, 2015, the Third Sunday after Pentecost within the Octave of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Commemoration of Saint Basil the Great.

A blessed feast of Saint Anthony to you all!

Most Pure Heart of Mary, pray for us.

Saint Anthony of Padua, pray for us.

Enthroning the True and Unsurpassed Love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus In Our Homes

Today is the Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Three republished reflections are offered to the readership of this site today: No One Is A Stranger to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Tender Mercies and Enthroning the Heart of True, Unsurpassed Love In Our Homes.

We are so ungrateful and so indifferent in the face of the great, tender mercies that have been showered upon us by the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, formed out of and beating as one with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. A marvelous reflection, written by Father Francois Charmot, S.J., in In Retreat With the Sacred Heart summarizes the Trinitarian nature of the love that flows out for us from the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus:

"If I did not have some knowledge of the Heart of Jesus, how little would I realize the love of the Father!

"But, looking upon the pierced Heart of the Incarnate Word, I can say with assurance: blessed be Thou, O Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ, who, in Him, has heaped upon us all Thy spiritual blessings!

"Before the creation of the world Thou hast chosen us in Jesus, in order that we may be holy with Him, through the love of the blessed Trinity.

"Thy Son is charity, as Thou, Father, art charity.

"He is all charity, as thou art all charity.

""The charity of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost is the same, equal in Three Persons.

There are not three charities, but one singe coeternal love.

"With what love I have been loved infinitely, neither more nor less by Thee, Father, than by the Son and by Thy Holy Spirit, since before the creation of the world!

"If I believe that Jesus loves me, I believe that His Father loves me just as much, and it is Thy Word who declares to me that Thou, Father, and Thy Holy Spirit wish to dwell in me.

"All those whom the Heart of Jesus loved: His disciples, the children, the sinners, the diseased, the poor, the humble, the persecuted.

"Thou, Father, also loved them with the same love.

"The Blessed Virgin was loved no less by Thee than by Thy Son, her Son, and by Thy Spirit.

"O Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ, blessed be Thou for having foreordained that we should be Thy Sons in thine only begotten Son, sons of adoption through Thy Son incarnate.

"Thou hast willed, by this gracious predestination, that the Heart of Thy well-beloved Son should make us sharers in the love of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

"For this Heart encompasses all that the charity of the Three Persons could communicate from its Fire to the Incarnate Word.

"In this Heart we possess by heritage such an effusion of the Holy Spirit, such a furnace of love, such an ocean of mercy, such an outpouring of tenderness, that it is impossible to imagine any others in some perfect creature which would be closer to infinite charity.

"That is why, O Father, we know thy love through the Heart of Jesus.

"Kind Father, kindest of Fathers, incomparably kind Father, Thou hast willed that through the pierced Heart of Thy Son, we should know the extent of Thy charity, Thy goodness, Thy paternity, Thy longanimity, Thy mercy, Thy pardon, Thine eternal remission of sin.

"And when this Heart which has so loved men–even to the shedding of all Its blood for them–finally ceased to beat, the death of Thy Son bore witness, even as the sacrifice of His Father who had delivered Him, that the love of the Three Persons for us outweighs the very life of the Man-God.

"Through the pierced Heart of Thy Son, O infinitely good Father, grant me the grace to believe implicitly in Thy love, to love Thee as a Son, as Thy Son Jesus, who abandoned Himself to Thee in the agony and on the cross in utter helplessness and total destitution, solely because Thou were His Father."(Father Francois Charmot, S.J., In Retreat With the Sacred Heart, The Newman Press, 1956, pp. 16-18.)

Today's Divine Office explains that Pope Pius IX extended the Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ to the whole world, and that Pope Pius XI elevated its rank to a double of the first class with an octave:

"At length, in the year 1765, the Supreme Pontiff Clement XIII approved the Mass and Office in honour of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus; and Pius IX extended the feast to the universal Church. From then on the worship of the most Sacred Heart, like an overflowing river, washing away all obstacles, hath poured itself forth over all the earth, and, at the dawn of the new century, Leo XIII, having proclaimed a jubilee, decided to dedicate the whole human race to the most Sacred Heart. This consecration was actually carried out with solemn rites in all the churches of the Catholic world, and brought about a great increase of this devotion, leading not only nations but even private families to it, who in countless numbers dedicated themselves to the Divine Heart, and submitted themselves to its royal sway. Lastly, the Sovereign Pontiff Pius XI, in order that, by its solemnity, the feast might answer more fully to the greatly widespread devotion of the Christian people, raised the feast of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus to the rite of a double of the first class, with an octave; and moreover, that the violated rights of Christ, the supreme King and most loving Lord, might be repaired, and that the sins of the nations might be bewailed, he ordered that annually, on that same feast-day, there should be recited an expiatory form of prayer in all the churches of the Christian world."

A new article should appear tomorrow, Saturday, June 13, 2015, along with a republished reflection on Saint Anthony of Padua, O.F.M.

A blessed Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus to you all!

Let us never be ungrateful or indifferent to the tender mercies shown us by the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Let our own hearts fly unto these tender mercies through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Cor Iesu Sacratissimum, miserere nobis.

Cor Iesu Sacratissimum, miserere nobis.

Cor Iesu Sacratissimum, miserere nobis.

Our Lady of Perpetual Help, pray for us.

Tender Mercies

The tender mercies of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus are an inexhaustible treasure that our own hearts, stained by so many sins and our own disordered self-love and lack of meekness and humility, can fathom only faintly.

Antichrist's Church of Lies and Sins

With apologies for the long delay in completing this article as a result of a few health problems and massive car repairs (tires, brake, struts) that have placed us in quite a hole at the beginning of the month, this can be seen as the second part of the last original article, which I have titled differently in order to emphasize the truth that the counterfeit church of concilarism has not been, is not now and can never be the Catholic Church, she who is the spotless, immaculate mystical spouse of her Divine Founder, Invisible Head and Mystical Spouse.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Barnabas, pray for us.

Marching With Our King

Today is the great Feast of Corpus Christi. This article, written a long time ago now and slightly revised over the years, is an exhortation to the readers of this site to spend more and more time in adoration before Our Beloved before His Real Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament if this is at all possible in your area.

Adoration is the first end of prayer, including the perfect prayer that is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in which Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ becomes Incarnate under the appearances of bread and wine when a men man, uttering mere words over the elements of the earth, calls Him down from Heaven. We must adore God with our whole mind, soul, heart, body and strength.

To spend time before the Most Blessed Sacrament in prayer is a foretaste of Heavenly glories. Our goal in life is to behold the glory of the Beatific Vision of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost for all eternity in the company of Our Lady, Saint Joseph, our Guardian Angels (each of whom beholds the Beatific Vision as he tries to guide us home to Heaven!), our patron saints and all of the members of the Church Triumph, whose ranks we hope and pray will include our dearest and nearest relatives and friends. We must make time for the foretaste of Heavenly glories by means of profound Eucharistic Adoration in this life is we want to enjoy the glories of Heaven itself for all eternity.

There are infused graces that are flooded into the souls of those who spend time in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament, those souls who are conscious of the need to make reparation for their sins as they give thanksgiving to God for all of the favors, both spiritual and temporal, they have received and who recognize the need to petition God for the favors we need, both spiritual temporal, starting with an earnest petition each day that we be given the grace to have a holy and sacramentally-provided-for death. Our Lord stands ready to send us this infusion of graces through the loving hands of His Most Blessed Mother, who is mystically with us when we pray before her Divine Son’s Real Presence. All we need to do is to arrange our lives in such a way as to make time for prayer before Our Eucharistic King and Lord.

We must, of course, be conscious of our need to get to the Sacrament of Penance on a weekly basis in order that our reception of Our Lord’s Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity in Holy Communion will be worthy and fervent. The frequent, devout and worthy reception of Our Lord in Holy Communion gives strength even to those souls who have been steeped in one sin after another, those souls who have refused to surrender to the devil’s attacks upon them over the years:

And then come, and accuse me, saith the Lord: if your sins be as scarlet, they shall be made as white as snow: and if they be red as crimson, they shall be white as wool. If you be willing, and will hearken to me, you shall eat the good things of the land. (Isaias 1: 18-19.)

We must ask Our Lady on this great feast day of Corpus Christi, which, of course, is celebrated as an Octave in those chapels that use the Missal of Saint Pius V before it was “reformed” by the revolutionary efforts of Annibale Bugnini and Ferdinando Antonelli in the 1950s, to help give us more and more graces to recognize the Most Sacred Heart of her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, beats for with great love in the Most Blessed Sacrament.

We must ask Our Lady to help us approach the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart with such fervor and devotion that we will consider it as a great loss if ever there is a day we are unable to get a true offering of Holy Mass and unable to spend at least some time with her Divine Son, Who is the Prisoner of Love in tabernacles today just as He was the Prisoner of her Virginal and Immaculate Womb from the time of His Incarnation to the day of His Nativity.

We must also thank Our Lord and His Most Blessed Mother for our true bishops and true priests who make it possible for us to have the Sacraments in this time of apostasy and betrayal, remembering to pray that more young men will have the courage to renounce the world and study to become an alter Christus so that he, acting in persona Christi in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, can make Our Lord present in the Most Blessed Sacrament and to bless us with that Most Blessed Sacrament on great feast days such as this one.

A blessed Feast of Corpus Christi to you all!

There should be another new article tomorrow.

Today should be devoted entirely to gratitude to Eucharistic King for the great gift of Himself in Holy Communion and our ability worship Him in His Real Presence even though He sitteth at the right hand of God the Father in Heaven. What a mystery of love. Words fail.

Jorge's Own Karl Rove, Walter Kasper, Architect of the New World Ecumenical Order

George Walker Bush had his Karl Rove, the “architect.”

Jorge Mario Bergoglio has his “architects,” including Walter Kasper.

There is more to this than may meet the eye at first glance as both the naturalists and the conciliarists are as one in using widespread public support for perverse unions as the means for abandoning even the rhetorical show of opposition to them.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.

Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May (yes, even in June!)

This is a revised reflection in honor of the Transferred Feast of the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which was instituted by Pope Pius XII in 1954, thus moving the feast of Saint Angela Merici from May 31 to today, June 1. There is a commemoration of Saint Angela Merici in today's Holy Mass.

Every person on the face of this earth is called to honor Mary our Immaculate Queen. Every nation on this earth is called to give public honor to the Queen of Heaven and of Earth, Our Lady, she who made possible our very salvation by her perfect Fiat to the Holy Will of God the Father at the Annunciation. It is fitting that we end her month, the month of May, with this great feast as we hope end our lives with the help of her prayers so that we can enjoy an unending Easter Sunday of glory in Paradise as we give all adoration and worship to the Most Blessed Trinity and give her our due love, honor and gratitude.

Our Lady, Queen of Heaven and of Earth, pray for us. Saint Petronilla, pray for us.

Saint Angela Merici, pray for us.

A blessed transferred Feast of the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary to you all!

An original article should be appear tomorrow. Thank you. Scroll below for yesterday's two commentaries.

Only One God Is the True God: The Most Blesed Trinity

It is very early on the morning of Trinity Sunday.

Today’s original article, “See Weasel Jorge Bow and Scrape Once More to His Talmudic Masters,” dealing with the most recent of many flip-flops by those most wretched of demons on the face of the earth today, was published a short while ago. Scroll below for the link.

This reflection on Trinity Sunday is a revised version of one written a few years ago. (A few typographical errors, noted about twelve hours after posting, have been corrected. Thank you.)

A blessed Trinity Sunday to you all!
