Friday, July 28, 2017, Update
Although I have started another commentary on the Charlie Gard tragedy, which will, it appears, end today once he dies as a result of his court-ordered execution, the injury that I suffered on Tuesday evening, July 18, 2017, the Feast of Saint Camillus de Lellis, continues to cause significant pain in the lower back and down the right leg. This is superb penance, and I very grateful that God has chosen to bestow it upon me as an act of mercy to help this erring sinner make a bit of reparation for his many sins. Deo gratias!
Indeed, most of yesterday, Thursday, July 27, 2017, the Feast of Saint Pantaleon, was spent getting x-rays of the affected area after receiving referral for them from our chiropractor. Evidently dissatisfied with the x-rays, though, or seeking confirmation of a diagnosis, he has instructed me to undergo a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of the area today, the Feast of Saints Nazarius, Celsus, Victor, and Innocent. This means that writing will have to wait until Saturday, July 29, 2017, the Feast of Saint Martha. However, I do hope to complete the commentary on the Charlie Gard commentary for posting on the Eighth Sunday after Pentecost and the Commemoration of Saints Abdon and Sennen on Sunday, July 30, 2017.
For the moment, therefore, I want to highlight an older article, The Council of Trent Must Have Been Wrong for Jorge to be Correct, which was published nearly four months ago now, by way of responding to an article in L’Osservatore Romano authored by a conciliar presbyter, Giulio, Cirignano, who said that Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s agenda of “conversion” away from “religion” and to “faith” was being impeded by numerous priests/presbyters and pseudo-bishops. My physical condition permitting, I will have a specific commentary on this in a few days. For the time being, though, the earlier article discusses many of the points in L'Osservatore Romano article says pseudo-priests are main obstacle to Jorge's agenda of a "pastoral conversion".
Finally, I will try to raise funds privately to pay for yesterday’s x-rays ($500) and today’s MRI ($400). Failing that, however, I will post a notice on this site. I would appreciate the prayers of those who access this site for my recovery and for the raising of the funds to cover the diagnostic imaging that has been ordered by our chiropractor. Thank you.
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
Saints Nazarius, Celsus, Victor, and Innocent, pray for us.
