Saint Louis IX, King of France: Christ the King's Humble Exemplar and Viceroy

Today  is the Feast of Saint Louis IX, King of France, that great exemplar of the Social Reign of Christ the King. Saint Louis was taught by his holy mother, Blessed Blanche of Castile, to prefer death rather to commit a deliberate Mortal Sin. He heard two Masses a day and was a member of the Third Order of Saint Francis, whose patron saint he remains to this day.

Saint Louis strove to rule according to the Mind of Christ the King as He had deposited It exclusively in the Catholic Church, recognizing that he, Louis IX, would have to answer to Christ the King at the moment of his own Particular Judgment for how he ruled his subjects. His letter to his son Philip is a succinct summary of the principles of Catholic Social Teaching. It is a model for how everyone in public life should conduct himself in order to please Christ the King as the devoted client of Our Lady, she who is our Immaculate Queen.

As we had some difficulties with a different neighbor in the past few days who asked us to return a goat that they had given us without any strings or preconditions nearly three years ago, the original article that I had planned to post at this time has been delayed. Our most recent set of "difficulties" have been resolved by choosing not to fight the unjust demand by getting a young goat to replace the one that had been given. We live in a world of rank emotionalism, and no amount of reasoning is going to work with people who have the emotional maturity of toddlers as they get carried away with sentimentality without having said a word or given any indication of their change-of-heart after all this time. Oh well, souls are expensive and I, for one have many sins for which to make reparation. Just another day in rural America! 

Vivat Christus Rex!

Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Louis IX, pray for us.

Our Remedy for the Ills of a Sick World: The Immaculate Heart of Mary

[I had formatted this article for republication yesterday morning and had reached the point of pressing the button to post it.  To my complete and utter horror, though I found this afternoon, Thursday, August 23, 2018, the Feast of Saint Philip Benizi and the Commemoation of the Vigil of Saint Bartholomew, that it got lost in cyberspace. It vanished. It went poof! Thus, as August is the month of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I am hereby publishng my reflection for yesterday's feast day. I hope to have the next original article competed by tomorrow morning. Thank you.]

Yesterday was the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, to which the month of August is devoted, that heart that was pierced with Seven Swords of Sorrow during the Life of her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus was formed out of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. These twin hearts of matchless love suffered as one and they beat as one while on earth and they have beat as one in Heaven since Our Lady was Assumed into Heaven body and soul after her death.

Our Lady's Immaculate Heart was unstained by Original Sin or Actual Sins. The Immaculate Heart of the Mother of God, therefore, was capable of a purity of love of God and of her fellow men that is almost indescribable. Our Lady's Most Pure, Most Holy Heart despises the sins that caused her Divine Son to suffer in His Sacred Humanity during His Passion and Death but at the same time is full of a perfect and completely pure maternal compassion for erring sinners such as you and me.

Our Lord, showing us His infinite compassion for us erring sinners, has sent us His Most Blessed Mother to provide us with her maternal assistance to get home to Heaven as members of His true Church founded upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope.

We have been given the Rosary, the Brown Scapular of Mount Carmel, the Miraculous Medal, and the Green Scapular through her loving hands, through which flow the graces won for us by the shedding of Our Lord's Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross.

Her apparition to Juan Diego and the miraculous image of herself she left on his tilma helped to convert millions of Indians to the true Faith in the Americas.

Our Lady ratified Pope Pius IX's solemn proclamation of her Immaculate Conception by proclaiming herself to Saint Bernadette Soubirous to be the Immaculate Conception on March 25, 1858. And Our Lady's appearance in the Cova da Iria from May 13, 1917, to October 13, 1917, gave us Heaven's Peace Plan, one that runs through her Immaculate Heart.

We must endeavor at all times to fulfill, as far as we are able in this time of apostasy and betrayal, Our Lady's Fatima Message in our own lives, especially by praying as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit and by living penitentially as the consecrated slaves of her Divine Son through her own Immaculate Heart.

The era of apostasy and betrayal will end when the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is made manifest. We can play our roles, small though they may be, in helping to bring about this triumph.

What are we waiting for?

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

Saints Timothy, Hippolytus, and Symphorian, pray for us.

The Voice That Should Make the Conciliar Revolutionaries Quake: Father Demetrius Gallitzin

[Late night update on Sunday, August 19, 2018: The next original commentary for this site, which, as noted below, was in the proces of being written when today's republished and revised article was posted, will focus closely on "Bishop" Robert Morlino's very good letter detailing the simple fact that the crisis facing what he thinks is the Catholic Church in the United States of America is not about pederasty but has been brought on the systematic recruitment, retention and promotion of homosexuals in what he thinks is the prisethood and the hierarchy of the Catholic Church. There is much to say. Given the limitations of time, however, I may not be able to complete my work until Wednesday, the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Mind you, "Bishop" Morlino is a supporter of the conciliar agenda, but credit must be given when it is deserving. This is one such instance, although I have criticized him the past for his embrace of the "seamless garment" and for his belief that the late Edward Moore Kennedy's support for "universal health care" was admirable (see  More Rationalizations and Distortions). Thank you.

Although I am working on another entirely original commentary, I am also working on trying to put out anthologies of my commentaries and spiritual reflections (as well as adapting my doctoral dissertation from 1977 for both and academic and general audience) into book form. It was in the process of reviewing past articles that I found one from nine years ago that contained wonderful defenses of the Catholic Faith against Protestantism that were made by Father Demetrius Gallitizin, a Russian émigré who labored in the Allegheny Mountains of western Pennsylvania.

Father Gallitizin’s spirited and manly defense of the Holy Faith, including refuting what he termed the damnable error that the Catholic Church can teach or suborn error, stands in contrast with the entire ethos of conciliarism and serves as a rebuke also to those in the “resist while recognize” movement who think that a true pope can teach error. The original article has been revised for republication at this time in order to give a bit of due attention to the Argentine Apostate.

There will be two more original articles before attention is turned more or less full-time of producing the books, although I suppose that the Argentine Apostate’s upcoming trip to Ireland will require me to do more penance for my many sins that commenting upon the inevitable witches’ brew that he will concoct there for public consumption.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Jorge Keeps Moving the Goalposts

This is a very brief commentary that is designed to demonstrate that Catholics within the structures of counterfeit church of conciliarism who are huffing and puffing right now over Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s abolition of the death penalty (see Capital Chaos: Francis Adherents scramble to explain Catechism Change on Death Penalty (Part 1)) from the so-called Catechism of the Catholic Church will be huffing and puffing when “Pope Francis” “changes,” for example, Catholic teaching that sodomite acts are intrinsically evil or decides to use the catechism of the conciliar cult to “normalize” adultery and fornication as having elements of “true love” and that those who mutilate themselves in the futile effort to change the gender given them by God have “civil rights” and must be recognized for the special “gifts” they have been given.

None of what has happened in the past sixty years has come from the Catholic Church, and nothing that comes from the Occupied Vatican on the West Bank of the Tiber River and its equally occupied branch offices (archdiocesan and diocesan chanceries, seminaries, professional schools, universities, schools, parishes, convents, catechetical institutes, “lay movements,” etc.) throughout the world in the future can will come from the deepest reaches of hell, not from the spotless, virginal mystical spouse of Our  Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Holy Mother Church.

A correction has been made to the text of this commentary as I had misidentified the apostate who has been appointed to work in the Vatican Secret Archives. The presbyter's name is Jose Tolentino Mendonca, not Gilfredo Marengo. I am sorry for the mistake.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Hyacinth, O.P., Gave No Quarter to Heresy and Schism

Today is the Feast of Feast of Saint Hyacinth, O.P., the great Apostle of the Northland and one of the first members of the Order of Preachers founded by Saint Dominic de Guzman. (Today is also the third day within the Octave of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Octave Day of Saint Lawrence the Deacon.)

Saint Hyacinth's great zeal for souls and his desire to convert pagans out of their diabolical superstitions into the true Faith, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there can be no true social order. Saint Hyacinth, who had such a great and abiding love for Our Lady, who favored him with apparitions, stands in quite a contrast with Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI and his successor, Jorge Mario Bergoglio. Both of these heretics have praised the very false religions that Saint Hyacinth—and every other Catholic missionary—sought to eradicate from the face of the earth by seeking the unconditional conversion of their adherents to the false religion. The difference between Saint Hyacinth's fidelity and apostasy of the conciliar "popes" stark. It is right there in black and white for all who have the grace to see. See for yourself. As considerable time was spent adding links, including a complete library of articles that have appeared about Bergoglio on this site in the fifty-three months, four days, to the preface of this revised article in order to provide readers with a useful and handy resource for those who are new to this site and want to review past articles on Jorge Mario Bergoglio, it has been impossible to add more recent examples of the endless reaffirmations that the Argentine Apostate has given to those who adhere to false religions, including Talmudism, from which he derives much of his "intellectual" and "spiritual" sustenance. In other words, "Pope Francis" is a stooge and servant of Antichrist.

On the Feast of Saint Joachim, the Father of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Saint Joachim, the father of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God and the Mediatrix of All Graces, knew the contempt that would be visited upon His Divine Grandson, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, sent himself into voluntary exile after he was denounced by a priest of the Old Dispensation for not producing a child after twenty years of marriage to his wife, our good Saint Anne.

It was during his exile that Saint Joachim was visited by an angel, who reminded him of the fact that Abraham's wife, Sarah, did not conceive a child until she was ninety years old, telling him that his wife, Saint Anne, would conceive a daughter named Mary, who would be the Mother of God. Saint Joachim and Saint Anne brought their daughter to the Temple when she was three years old, giving their long-awaited child back to the good God Who had given them to her so that she could be the Mother of their own Saviour, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. This should teach us to do everything possible to foster vocations to the priesthood and the consecrated religious life among our children, so that we can give them back to God so as to yield a spiritual bounty of souls in His service, especially in this time of apostasy and betrayal.

The revised and much enlarged text of this article also includes a reflection and description of the life of Saint Roch, whose feast is celebrated today in those churches named in his honor, as found in Dom Prosper Gueranger’s The Liturgical Year.

Also, I would like to call the attention of this site's readers to an article written by Dr. Paul Byrne, who has certainly taught me much in the past twenty-three years since I first met him in Toledo, Ohio: Was The Death of Charlie Gard Hastened?. Please do take the time to read this article.

Finally, although I had hoped to have my next commentary completed by now, it was not possible for me to complete my work yesterday, August 15, 2018, the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This entire day will be spent completing the commentary, which will be very short but has required a good deal of listing of various documents.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Joachim and Anne, pray for us!

Saint Roch, pray for us.

On the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (2018)

Today is the feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. She who was conceived without stain of Original Sin and who committed no Actual Sins in her life did not have to have her body undergo the corruption of the grave, although she truly died and was buried after her death.

Separated physically from her Divine Son after His Ascension into Heaven on Ascension Thursday, although she received Him in Holy Communion, Our Lady was Assumed body and soul into Heaven to plead for us with her Divine Son as the Queen of Heaven and of Earth, the Queen to whom every man must pledge his heart's oblation, the Queen whom every nation must honor publicly with Rosary Processions.

 Our Lady wants us to be in Heaven with her for all eternity. She wants our bodies to rise up incorrupt and glorious from the grave on the Last Day at the General Judgment of the Living and Dead so that our bodies can be reunited with our souls for all eternity in the glory of Heaven.

We need to ask her to help us make such perfect reparation for our sins in this passing, mortal vale of tears that we will pay the debt of what we our for our sins now rather than in the fires of Purgatory. We need to ask her to help us to be serious about seeking sanctity as the consecrated slaves of her Divine Son through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart.

What are we waiting for?

It is my hope to complete work on my next original article at some point on this feast day. There have been new twists to our continuing saga that have taken up a good deal of our time, Penance is better than ever in 2018! (There is little more that I can say about the how the conciliar hierarchy, such as it is, recruited, promoted, protected and covered-up for the sorts of moral crimes documented by the Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania than what I have written so many times in the past, including most recenty in , and I am certainly not going to address that sordid subject on this glorious feast day and Holy Day of Obligation. Perhaps next week.)

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

Our Lady, Queen Assumed into Heaven, pray for us.

Saint Clare of Assisi: In The Service and at the Command of Lady Poverty

As the ongoing campaign of harassment being waged against us has entered a new phase in the past two days, "all" I can offer you today, the Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost, is a republished reflection on the life of Saint Clare of Assisi that was published oringinally two years ago. The reflection speaks to the timeless virtues of detachment from the world, self-denial, modesty and a total embrace of holy poverty for love of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and His Holy Church.

This reflection emphasizes Saint Clare’s rejection of worldliness and worldly pleasures. No matter what our own sins and failings with respect to worldliness might be now and have been in the past, Saint Clare’s life and holy example inspires us to quit the world once and for all and to prepare for the world to come by storing up treasures in Heaven that do not rust or fade away, and that no thief can take away from us.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Clare of Assisi, pray for us.

Willing Accomplices in the Promotion of Grave Evils

[Alert: Someone who has nothing better to do with his time is attempting to impersonate me by using an e-mail address that is not mine:, Please disregard any e-mails you receive from this address and I ask the readers of this site to write to me if anyone receives an e-mail from that address. My own e-mail address is, and that is the only e-mail address that I use. Disregard all others. Thank you. Saint Philomena, pray for us.]

Our Federal taxpayer dollars are being used in a supposedly “pro-life” presidential administration to underwrite the “transplantation” of “fresh” aborted baby parts into the immune system of mice, something that is labeled as the “humanized mice” program by the wholly-owned subsidiary of the Big Pharmaceutical industry, the United States Food and Drug Administration (F.D.A.)

There will be no outrage about this expressed by the apostates in the so-called United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, who are too busy at this time praising “Pope Francis” for “changing” the irreformable Catholic teaching on the death penalty, which is a Natural Law right of the civil state, duly constituted, to impose upon malefactors found guilty of heinous crimes after the discharge of the due process of law, and endorsing the “Palliative Care and Hospice Education and Training Act” that was the subject of Bought-and-Paid-For Stooges of the Merchants of Death five days ago.

Please continue to pray for us in the midst of the current campaign of harassment and intimidation by the local ne'er-do-well, for whose conversion we are praying very fervently, and his confederates. Thank you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Philomena, pray for us.

Saints Tiburtius and Susanna, pray for us.
