Modernism's Eternal Foe, Our Eternal Friend

Today is the feast of the great Pope Saint Pius X, whose work against Modernism is summarized in Revised: Modernism's Eternal Foe, Our Eternal Friend. Unlike his immediate predecessor, Pope Leo XIII, and each of his three successors (Popes Benedict XV, Pius XI, and Pius XII), the former Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto was not in the diplomatic service of the Holy See at any time during the nearly forty-five years of his priesthood prior to his rather remarkable election as the Successor of Saint Peter on August 4, 1903. He was not prone to accept the word of diplomats, and he did not suffer lies and misrepresentations easily.

The farm boy from Riese, Italy, who served as a pastor of souls in a rough-and-tumble Italian cow town, Tombolo, and then in Salzano before becoming Bishop of Mantua and the Cardinal Patriarch of Venice, was always close to Our Lady. This tender devotion to Our Lady, which he learned from his saintly mother, helped him to keep close to the sheep even when he was the Vicar of Christ on earth. Thanks to the sign given him by the life and death of Little Nellie of Holy God, Pope Saint Pius X was the advocate of early First Communion (and early Confirmation) and of frequent Communions.

It is no accident at all that the now retired Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI made no reference to the centenary of Pascendi Dominci Gregis on September 8, 2007, nearly four years ago now. Ratzinger/Benedict made absolutely no reference on August 15, 2010, to the centenary of Pope Saint Pius X's Notre Charge Apostolique, which was a ringing condemnation of the false philosophy of the Sillon that is of the essence of conciliarism. He has made no reference to the one hundredth anniversary of The Oath Against Modernism on September 1, 1010 (see Witness Against Benedict XVI: The Oath Against Modernism). How could he? He stands condemned by the very words in these documents issued by Pope Saint Pius X. So does the man who ignored the one hundredth anniversary of Papa Sarto's death, Jorge Mario Bergolio, back on August 20, 2014.

The contrast between the Catholicism of Pope Saint Pius X, a defender of the Social Reign of Christ the King and the confessionally Catholic civil state, and the conciliarism of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who has denounced "restorationists" as "Pelagian" and "hard-headed" Pharisees while defending "healthy laicism" and "religious liberty" and the "separation of Church and State, could not be more clear.

Here is the Collect for today's feast in the Immemorial Mass of Tradition: "O God, who for the defense of the Catholic Faith and the restoration of all things in Christ didst fill Saint Pius, Supreme Pontiff, with heavenly wisdom and apostolic courage: grant in Thy loving kindness that by following his teachings and examples we may attain eternal rewards. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, forever and ever. Amen."

Pope Saint Pius X opposed Modernism. So must we as we refuse any "communion" at all with conciliarism or its false shepherds who are at war with the Catholic Faith. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Pope Saint Pius X, pray for us!

Finally, I might have a little something on the "Plim Plim" farce by tomorrow morning in between everything else that I am doing at this time that keeps me away from the daily insanity of Jorge and His Fiends, well, at least for a few months.

A blessed Feast Day of Pope Saint Pius X to you all, and a blessed fifty-third anniversary of priestly ordination to Father Louis J. Campbell of Saint Jude Shrine in Stafford, Texas!

Dancing to the Tune of Herod and Herodias

Saint John the Baptist prepared the way by his preaching for Our Lord to begin His Public Ministry. Saint John leaped for joy in the womb of his mother, Saint Elizabeth, when he heard the voice of Our Lady, being freed from Original Sin at that very moment. The sanctification of Saint John at the moment of Our Lady's Visitation thus prepared him to see things clearly as the last of the Old Testament Prophets, the bridge between the Old Testament and the New Testament.

Exceedingly Angry With Us, part one

We live in a time of great chastisements. God is indeed exceedingly angry with us, visiting us with all manner of natural and man-made disasters to effect our conversion as we seek to make reparation to Him through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary for our own sins and those of the whole world.

Such talk is, of course, anathema to the minds of the likes of Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his own Henry Alfred Kissinger, Pietro Parolin, as they speak of "dialogue" and "encounter" in the midst of the acts of savagery being committed by the forces of the completely faithful group of Mohammedans known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). May God have mercy on us all!

As much other work requires my attention now and for the foreseeable future, part two of this commentary may not appear until next Sunday, Just keep checking for updates. Thank you for your patience.

Sincerely yours in Christ the King through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary,

From His Mother's Knee

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 Mary our Immaculate Queen. Vivat Christus Rex! Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon. Saint Louis IX, pray for us.

Two Last Remedies

Today is the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, 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 there 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.

A blessed Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary to you all.

A Century of Heavenly Help from Papa Sarto

Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto, died on this day one hundred years ago, less than three weeks after the outbreak of what became known as World War I. It broke Papa Sarto's heart to see the nations of formerly Catholic Europe going to war with each other for no good reason other than state militarism and nationalism Gifted with a prophetic spirit, it is perhaps no exaggeration that Pope Saint Pius X saw clearly what future events would hold for the the world and for the Church Militant on earth. Yet it is that this last true pope to have been a pastor without any training in the Vatican diplomatic corps is helping us more from Heaven than he did here on the face of this earth as Father Sarto, Bishop Sarto, Cardinal Sarto and, of course, as the Vicar of Our Lord Jesus Christ on earth.

We need to invoke his intercession for a true pope on the Throne of Saint Peter who has his own pastoral heart and who is as fearless as he was in combating the foes of Christ the King and His Sacred Deposit of Faith.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, pray for us.

Pope Saint Pius X, pray for us.

Compare and Contrast, 2014

Today is the Tenth Sunday after Pentecost and the Commemoration 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/Francis. 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 past seventeen months, to the preface of this vastly revised article that that provides a useful and handy resource for those who are new to this site and want to review past articles on Ratzinger and Bergoglio, I decided to incorporate a commentary on Bergoglio's address to the conciliar "bishops" of Korea into the text below. Also found in the text are links to the hard copy version of Conversion in Reverse: How the Ethos of Americanism Converted Catholics, which was been published in its corrected form on Kindle as well.

Work continues on other projects that occupy most of my time these days. Responses to e-mails will be very slow, perhaps up to four or five days, as a result of these projects, which will result, God willing and Our Lady interceding, in at least four or five new books over the course of time. Original articles on this site will continue to be scarce. However, an effort will be made to do at least one or two in the next seven to ten days.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Hyacinth, pray for us.

Saint Lawrence the Deacon, pray for us.

Saint Agapitus, pray for us

Saint Helena, pray for us.

Fatherly Affection, Eternal Orientation

For whatever reason, today's original article, "No Matter the Venue, Jorge's Always at Home Bashing Believing Catholics," is found below yesterday's republished reflection. In other words, it is two articles below this listing. Today's new article is very brief, perhaps two pages in length.
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. He 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 ago, 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. Saints Joachim and Anne, pray for us!

Taking Her Rightful Place

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. 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?

Work on the next original article to be posted on this site continues. It deals with Jorge's trip to the Republic of Korea, One can count on Jorge bashing believing Catholics no matter where he goes. He did so on Thursday when addressing the conciliar "bishops" of the Republic of Korea. However, the hour is very late. That article is just going to have to wait until later today or tomorrow.

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

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