On the Feast of the Seven Dolors of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Passiontide (2019)

Unfathomable. Just unfathomable

Only a handful of genuine mystics and truly gifted spiritual masters have been able to comprehend the unfathomable mysteries of grief that overwhelmed the fairest creature of our race, Our Lady, as those Seven Swords of Sorrow were plunged through and through her Immaculate Heart. We sin so casually, so thoughtlessly, so repeatedly, rarely giving a moment’s worth of a meditation to how our least Venial Sins caused Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to suffer unspeakable horrors during His Passion and Death, horrors that penetrated the Immaculate Heart of His Most Blessed Mother as she, conceived without any stain of Original or Actual Sin, suffered in a perfect communion of Hearts with Him. It cannot be that way with us from this day forward.

We are on the cusp of Holy Week, ending now the first week in Passiontide, Passion Week. We must enter deep into the mysteries of our salvation, which was wrought for us by the perfect obedience of the Word made Flesh in Our Lady’s Virginal and Immaculate Womb to the Will of His Co-Equal and Co-Eternal Father. We must quit our sins once and for all, recognizing how they caused the God-Man and His Most Blessed Mother to suffer, how they wound our own souls, which have been purchased by the shedding of every single drop of the Divine Redeemer’s Most Precious Blood, and how they have brought great sorrow into the Heart out of which was formed Our Redeemer’s Most Sacred Heart.

No more sin.

No more joking about sin.

No more dismissiveness about the gravity of sin.

We must repent and amend our lives as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. Our Lady brought forth her Divine Son painlessly and miraculously. She brought us forth in great pain as the adopted children of the Living God as she stood so valiantly by the foot of the Cross on Good Friday. She stands by the foot of her Divine Son’s Most Holy Cross in every true offering of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass by a true bishop or a true priest. We must stand by her each day at Holy Mass as we make reparation for our sins and those of the whole world with every beat of our hearts, making sure as well to pray as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit.

An original commentary, one dealing with several aspects of Antipope Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI's new missive about his "thoughts" on the crisis of clerical abuse within his false religious sect will be published shortly,

A blessed Feast of the Seven Dolors of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Passiontide to you all.

Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.

Men Remain As Blind Now as They Were When Our Lord Denounced the Blind Jews

Although admittedly late in the day, this is still Passion Sunday here in the United States of America.

This commentary is something of a follow-up to Antipapal Appointees Always Advance Antichrist’s Anti-Catholic Agenda as it incorporates a detailed news story about the spread of viral infections that are drug resistant by way of explaining that the “omniscient” high priests and priestesses of Modernity—aided and abetted as they are by the false high priests of the counterfeit church of conciliarism—are as blind about and as hateful of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ as were the Jews who accused Him in today’s Gospel passage of being a Samaritan who had a devil within Him.  The blindness persists as men refuse to recognize the Light of the World and to follow Him as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively through His true Church, the Catholic Church.

This commentary also contains links to two white papers detailing the lies that have been told to us by government officials about vaccine “safety” and the supposed lack of a link between vaccines containing aluminum adjuvant and autisms: Vaccine Safety White Paper and Aluminum Adjuvant in Vaccines and Autism.

Almost nothing told us by the government and the medical industry is true. Yet it is that even believing Catholics prefer the darkness of these liars to the light of truth even on the natural level. Face it: we were lied to in the 1950s, and we are being lied to today. A government based on one anti-Incarnational lie after another must produce and sustain liars whose lies become more bolder and more institutionalized over the course of time.

Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.

Saint Vincent Ferrer, O.P.: A Fearless Seeker of Lost Souls

This article, which was written in 2011 and revised over the years, contrasts the zeal of Saint Vincent Ferrer for the conversion of Jews and Mohammedans with his antitheses in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, who do not believe that they have a mission from God to seek with urgency the conversion of the souls of any non-Catholics, including adherents of the Talmud and the Koran.

Although I would not have thought it possible six years ago when this article was written originally, Jorge Mario Bergoglio is even more of antithesis of Saint Vincent Ferrer than was Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI before him, not that the German Modernist by the way of the “new theology” was any slouch in this regard. It’s just that the Argentine Apostate has exceeded everything that has gone before him in the past fifty-eight years, and he’s still at his work of destruction.

Today, Friday, April 5, 2019, is the sixth anniversary of the death of Mrs. Melissa Kunkel, the late first wife of Mr. Thomas Kunkel of Sharonville, Ohio, and the mother of twelve loving children to whom she was so very devoted. Please join us in remembering the repose of this devout Catholic woman’s immortal soul. 

Prayers are also requested for the soul of Mrs. Leslie Matatics, who died on Sunday, March 24, 2019, in Scranton, Pennsylvania. A mother of ten children, Mrs. Matatics, the wife of Mr. Gerald Christian, was fifty-five years of age and died after a year-long struggle with cancer. Please pray for her immortal soul and for the needs of Mr. Matatics and his family at this time.

Finally, yesterday, Thursday, April 4, 2019, the Feast of Saint Isidore of Seville and the Commemoration of Thursday in the Fourth Week of Lent, was the second anniversary of the death of my former colleage and friend, Mr. John Vennari. Please remember his immortal soul and for the needs of the Vennari family.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and all of the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Vincent Ferrer, O. P., pray for us.

Antipapal Appointees Always Advance Antichrist's Anti-Catholic Agenda

Although I am aware that Jorge Mario Bergoglio has been in Morocco, where he reaffirmed his apostate statement on “human solidarity” that was the subject of Jorge Signs Off on the One World Ecumenical Religion two months ago, my attention in the past week has been focused on writing this new commentary, which deals with the conciliar Vatican’s position on vaccines derived from the cell lines of butchered babies.

This is a detailed article, one that is relatively short by the standards of this website as it runs less than twenty pages. However, there is a lot of important information contained in the text, including links to various articles as well as to a video presentation by Dr. Suzanne Humphries about the fraudulent nature of the claims made by governments and the medical industry about the “success” of vaccines.

You see, the conciliar Vatican assures us that vaccines are important to public health. As I state in this new commentary, vaccines have nothing to do with public health. They have everything to do with money and control as human beings are used as guinea pigs of experimentation.

The Mueller Report?

I’ll get around to that in due course.

For the moment, though, this commentary should keep you busy for a few days.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Philomena, pray for us.

Reflections on the Royal Road to Victory: The Via Crucis (2019)

Several matters have interfered with the completion of my next commentary, which is not about the Mueller Report as summarized by United States Attorney General William Barr. That article is being written. However, there is a subject concerning the counterfeit church of conciliarism that I want to cover first. There is just enough work to be done on it to make it unlikely for posting until tomorrow, Monday, April 1, 2019, Monday in the Fourth Week of Lent.

The current posting contains a few reflections for your consideration on the Way of the Cross that might be useful for the reamining three weeks of Lent. These reflections were written many a moon ago and have been revised slightly over the past three decades. 

A blessed Laetare Sunday to you all.

Thank you.

Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.

Images to Last for All Eternity: On the Feast of Saint John Damascene

The great saint whose feast we celebrate today, Saint John Damascene, fought the iconoclasts in his day. And while many, although far from all, of our Catholic churches are now in the hands of the conciliar iconoclasts, we can festoon our homes with images of Our Lord and Our Lady and Saint Joseph and other saints as we use these images to remind us of we are united to the saints represented in these images by means of the Communion of Saints and that we hope to share Heaven with them for all eternity in the glory of the Beatific Vision. 

Today is, of course, our daughter Lucy’s seventeenth birthday and the elevenanniversary of her First Holy Communion. 

We are very blessed to have our dear daughter, who is being taught by a mother possessed of a pure love of the Holy Catholic Faith and a deep, tender devotion to the Mother of God. I give thanks every day and night for the blessings represented by my family. Deo gratias! Please do pray for Lucy Mary Therese Norma Droleskey on her birthday today. Thank you. 

The next original article is in the works. I hope to have it posted by tomorrow, the Feast of Saint John of Capistrano. 

Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us. 

Saint John Damascene, pray for us.

Not With My Money (Not That I Have Any)

As always seems to be the case these days, it took longer to complete work on this commentary than I had estimated, and for this I apologize.

Although I do not have television, I read news stories on a selective basis every day. A recent series of stories dealt with supposed “celebrities,” absolutely none of whom I had ever heard in my life as I do not follower contemporary “culture” or “entertainment” in the slightest, having paid exorbitant fees to a man to get their children into prestigious universities on scholarships of one sort or another. While this matter is not the subject of the current commentary, it did prompt me to use my upcoming fiftieth anniversary reunion of my high school graduating class as a springboard write about the true purposes of education as elucidated by the teaching of Holy Mother Church.

This is a relatively short article, running about thirty pages on the Word document on which it was prepared.

My commentary about the findings of Robert Mueller’s “investigation” as summarized by United States Attorney General William Barr will follow by the end of this week.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

On the Feast of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary (2019)

Today's article is a slightly revised reflection on the feast we celebrate today, the feast which signifies the moment when the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, the very Word through Whom all things were made, personally entered into human history as He was made Incarnate in the Virginal and Immaculate Womb of His Most Blessed Mother by the power of the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, Who overshadowed Our Lady after she had given her perfect Fiat to the Will of the First Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Father, as that Will was made known to her by Saint Gabriel the Archangel.

The whole of human history is changed today--and no one can remain neutral about what happened on this day. If the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity really did become Man this day in Our Lady's Virginal and Immaculate Womb so as to redeem us on the wood of the Holy Cross thirty-three years later, as we know is indeed the case, then every person and every nation on the face of this earth must acknowledge this fact and subordinate everything to the Deposit of Faith that He has entrusted exclusively to His Catholic Church for Its eternal safekeeping and infallible explication.

We must pray to Our Lady every day so that we will never lose sight of the centrality of the Incarnation in our own lives and in the lives of our nations, never lose sight of the fact that Holy Mass itself is Incarnational as the Word Who was made Incarnate in her Virginal and Immaculate Womb is made Incarnate on altars of sacrifice under the appearances of bread and wine by true bishops and true priests. Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ spent nine months in the tabernacle of Our Lady's Virginal and Immaculate Womb, thereby sanctifying the wombs of al mothers. He is in solidarity with every child in every mother's womb. Every abortion, whether by chemical or surgical means, is an indirect attack on the Incarnation that took place this very day.

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

By the way, I spent all day Saturday and most of Sunday working on the next original article for this site. Work on it, though, was ceased about ten minutes after Midnight this morning as it is not possible to stay up for the two hours or so that it will take the remaining work I have to do on it. It is my hope to have the article up by late this afteroon on this feast day. An article incorporating Attorney General William Barr's executive summary of the report submitted to him by "special counsel" Robert Mueller on Friday, March 22, 2019, the Feast of Saint Isidore the Farmer and the Commemoration of Friday in the Second Week of Lent, will appear later this week. I move methodically these days, surely not as fast as was the case in the past.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Benedict of Nursia: Adamant Foe of Paganism, Idolatry and Heresy

[Saturday, March 23, 2019, Update: A prayer request for Father Joseph Collins:

[Although I may not have my next original article ready for posting until the Feast of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Monday, March 25, 2019, and will not have any commentary about whatever United States Attorney General William Barr chooses to release about the report that “special counsel” Robert Mueller has submitted to him for several days after that, I did want to take a few moments to ask the readers of this site for prayers for a very fine and prayerful priest, Father Joseph Collins, who is reported to be gravely ill at this time.

[Father Collins was one of “The Nine” who wrote a Letter to Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre almost exactly at this time thirty-six years ago now. We met him in late-September of 2003 after Holy Mass at Saint Michael the Archangel Chapel in Glenmont, New York, and he was very pleasant and cordial to us even though we had not come as of then to accept the true state of the Church Militant in this time of apostasy and betrayal. He could not have been kinder to us.

Indeed, he drove down the one hundred eighty miles or so from Glenmont to Jericho, New York, the next afternoon to attend a talk I gave about false ecumenism at the Milleridge Inn restaurant, and it was eight months thereafter that we assisted at a Requiem Mass that he offered in Lakeville, Connecticut, for the late and truly imitable William C. Koneazny (see A True Catholic Rendezvous: A Personal Reminiscence of the late +William C. Koneany, R.I.P. ). Father Collins was very instrumental in helping me to see and to accept the true state of the Church Militant at this time.

We have not crossed paths with Father Collins, who loved talking about the 1969 New York Mets with me, since he offered Holy Mass for us in November of 2009 as we were returning to the Midwest after a visit to Connecticut, Rhode Island and Long Island. However, he hass remained in our prayers daily. Please join us in praying for Father Collins, who has received the Sacrament of Extreme Unction, during this time of his critical illness.  

Our Lady, Health of the Sick, pray for us.

Saint Luke the Physician, pray for us.


Saints Cosmas and Damian, pray for us.

his reflection contrasts the work of Saint Benedict of Nursia, whose feast is today, which is also the fifty-eighth anniversary of my Confirmation at the hands of Bishop Walter P. Kellenberg, the founding Bishop of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, New York, at Saint Aloysius Church, Great Neck, New York, with that of the two most recent conciliar “popes.”

Much time has been spent to give attention to Bergoglio’s denial of the commission that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ gave to the Eleven on Ascension Thursday to convert all men to the true Faith. Saint Benedict of Nursia, the father of western Monasticism and thus of Europe itself, had an intolerance for such teaching. So should we. 

Finally, a new article was posted last evening: .

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. 
Saint Benedict of Nursia, pray for us.

Fake Popes Make Fake Promises

This is a very short commentary that I had not anticipated preparing prior to reading a news story about the refusal of the fake pope, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, to accept the resignation of the fake archbishop of Lyon, France, Philippe Barbarin following the latter’s conviction for covering-up clerical abuse in his archdiocese. What was that the Argentine Apostate said on Sexagesima Sunday about promising to punish enablers of clerical abusers?

Well, fake popes make fake promises because they belong to a false religion and propagate fake doctrines and stage fraudulent liturgical services that are abominable in the sight of the true God of Divine Revelation, the Most Blessed Trinity.

Nothing changes in the conciliar structures.

It was precisely nine years ago that Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI made the same kind of promises as his successor did twenty-four days ago now as he apologized for and promised to take action again clerical abuse in Ireland. Six “bishops” offered their resignations, but Ratzinger/Benedict rejected two of them and one did not resign until 2011 for “health reasons.” Other than that, of course, nothing.

Fake popes make fake promises.

What else is new?

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Benedict of Nursia, pray for us.
