Republished: May We Be Made As Simple and Trusting

Our Blessed Mother gave us two great miracles on this day 484 years ago. Acceding to the demand of Apostolic Administrator [later Archbishop] Fray Juan de Zumarraga, O.F.M., the Mother of God saw to it that Castilian roses grew atop Tepeyac Hill so that her little "Juanito," Juan Diego, a fifty-five year-old widower to whom she had first appeared on December 9, 1531, could provide proof that it was she who had made the request of Fray de Zumarraga to built a shrine in her honor on the hill where she appeared. The administrator's guards, who had treated Juan Diego with such cruelty and even racism, spied those roses and tried to grab them out of Juan's tilma as he waited to see Fray de Zumarraga. The roses, quite miraculously, disappeared every time the guards sought to snatch them away from Juan Diego.

Those Castilian roses were presented by Juan Diego to Fray Juan de Zumarraga, who knelt before the Indian convert to the Faith as he gazed upon the miraculous image that Juanito did not know was there: the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, who was clearly expecting the Baby Jesus. Remember, this was Advent in the year 1531, just forty-nine years after Christopher Columbus first set foot on the Island of San Salvador to implant the Cross of the Divine Redeemer in this hemisphere for the first time since Saint Brendan the Navigator had done so in the First Millennium.

Our Lady's miraculous image showing her expecting the Baby Jesus is quite symbolic of the expectant desire she had then--and has now--for the conversion of the peoples of the Americas to the true Faith, that each person and each nation be born anew as they submit themselves to Christ the King through His Catholic Church. Over nine million indigenous people converted to the true Faith within a short time following her apparition to Juan Diego on this day 484 years ago, almost person for person the number of people lost to the Faith as a result of the Protestant Revolt in Europe. It was almost as though God was saying to those who left, "Fine. I will have My Mother get new souls to populate Holy Mother Church and hence Heaven itself."

The Americas were indeed converted to Catholicism, which is why the devil had to attack the Faith in Latin America with such ferocity by means of the Masonic revolutionaries who were supported in both philosophical and monetary terms by the lodges in the nascent Untied States of America. Great crimes were committed against Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and His Most Blessed Mother as a result. These crimes continue to this day, which is, of course, one of the reasons that Saint Michael the Archangel appeared with Our Lady as she spoke to Juan Diego. Our Lady has crushed the head of the serpent with her heel and Saint Michael the Archangel is our helper to crush him in our own lives and in the Americas where he reigns, albeit temporarily, in civil government and in popular culture.

May we rely upon the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Empress and Patroness of the Americas, to help us to be courageous enough to plant seeds for the conversion of the Americas, including the United States of America, to the Social Reign of Christ the King as It must be exercised by the Catholic Church. Perhaps an extra Rosary today on this glorious feast day will help us to be more faithful and more courageous in our promotion of the Social Reign of Christ the King and Mary our Immaculate Queen. Viva Cristo Rey!

Readers, especially those who are new to this site, might also be interested in a series on the apparitions of Our Lady to Juan Diego that was written five years ago now: May We Be Made As Simple and Trusting, part one, May We Made As Simple and Trusting, part two, May We Be Made As Simple and Trusting, part three and May We Be Made As Simple and Trusting, part four.

Also, I ask for your prayers today for my brother, who turns sixty-two years of age on this Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Prayers are also requested for the Reverend Mister Robert Letourneau, who will be ordained to the Holy Priesthood by Bishop Mark Pivarunas today, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

The next original article is a work in progress. Thanks again for your patience.

December 11, 2015, Update: Feast of Pope Saint Damasus I within the Octave of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary

The time available to me simply does not permit a full commentary today on the new Vatican document concerning conciliar-Talmudic relations fifty years after the issuance of Nostra Aetate by the "Second" Vatican Council. Although it is a "new" document, there is nothing new in its text, which is why the following articles that have been published on this site are sufficient for the time being for those interested in a ready antidote to patent apostasy:

No Space Between Ratzinger and Bergoglio (this was the first of a series of articles in January of 2014 that were reworked into No Space Between Ratzinger and Bergoglio: So Close in Apostasy, So Far From Catholic Truth, which awaits your purchases!)

Bowing Down Yet Again To Those Who Hate Christ the King, part one

Truly Frightening To Behold the Willing Refusal To Accept the Truth

Model of Conversion: Saint Paul

Coloring Everything He Says and Does, part two

It is time for the unconvinced to face the simple fact that the Vatican under the control of the false religious sect of conciliarism is just another lodge of B'Nai Brith. We must pray to Our Lady for the conversion of all those outside of the bark of Saint Peter, including Talmudists and conciliarists, as we beg her to help us to convert away from our sins and failings by cooperating with the graces that flow through her loving hands that have been won for us by the shedding of every single drop of the Most Precious Blood of her Divine Son, Christ the King.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Pope Saint Damasus I, pray for us.

(It was after posting this brief update that I saw that an analysis of the new document appears at Novus Ordo Watch Wire. There is truly nothing new that conciliar apostates can say now that they have not said so many times before, something that is borne out in the my own articles linked above. May God have mercy on us all!)





Fifty Years of Delusions Popularized by Diabolical Illusions

It was fifty years, two days ago, that is, on December 7, 1965, the Feast of Saint Ambrose and the Commemoration of the Vigil of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, that Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria/Paul VI closed the heretical work of the “Second” Vatican Council by praising the work that had been done to serve the needs of man as “he really is” in the midst of the “modern” world.

December 9, 2015, Update: Within the Octave of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary

As the lateness of the hour demands that I cease work on the next article, a concession that I make in order not to retard a recovery process from surgery ten days ago that simply has to take its time, this brief update is to inform the readership of this site that the next commentary will attempt to put yesterday’s display of pantheism in Saint Peter’s Square that has been chronicled at Novus Ordo Watch Wire in a manner that contrasts the “high tech” smoke and mirrors used to worship created things with the only thing that is real, the truths of the Catholic Faith.

Today is the four hundred eighty-fourth anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady to Juan Diego at Tepeyac Hill that culminated three days later in the miracle of her leaving an image of herself on his tilma and of her fulfilling the proof demanded by Apostolic Administrator (later Bishop) Juan de Zummaraga of Castilian roses in full blossom in December. These miracles were no illusion. They were quite real. Everything about the counterfeit church of conciliarism is delusional and has been sustained by means of illusions. What happened last evening, Rome time, on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, of all days, was the logical end result of the “Second” Vatican Council’s fascination with “man” as “he is really is” in the “modern world” and not with the sanctification of human souls in behalf of the salvific work of Christ the King.

More tomorrow.

Again, I apologize for the delay.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us.

Revised: Spotless Blessed Mother, Spotless Holy Mother Church

"I AM THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION." Those words, uttered by the Mother of God herself to Saint Bernadette Soubirous in the Grotto of Massabielle near Lourdes, France, on March 25, 1858, was a Heavenly ratification of the solemn, infallible proclamation of the doctrine of her Immaculate Conception by Pope Pius IX on December 8, 1854, in the Bull Ineffabilis Deus. "I AM THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION."

Our Lady was conceived in the womb of her holy mother, Good Saint Anne, without any stain of Original or Actual Sin in anticipation of the merits that would be won by her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, on the wood of the Holy Cross. She, the Singular Vessel of Devotion, had the perfect integrity of Adam and Eve before their Fall from Grace in the Garden of Eden. It is important, therefore, to get the doctrine of Original Sin right in order to understand the great miracle worked by God in the soul of the fairest flower of our race, Our Lady, from the very first moment of her Immaculate Conception. To get anything about the doctrine of Original Sin wrong leads to the efforts on the part of Modernists to deconstruct the doctrinal definitions of Original Sin and of the Immaculate Conception.

Alas, the Catholic Church, our Holy Mother on earth, our Mater and Magister, is as spotless as the Immaculate Blessed Virgin Mary. Holy Mother Church does not deconstruct infallible dogmatic definitions. Holy Mother Church cannot do so, which is why we need to pray to Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces and our Immaculate Queen, to help us to cleave to true bishops and true priests in the catacombs who make no concessions to the counterfeit church of conciliarism that has promulgated an abominable "liturgy" and whose officials feel feel to "reinterpret" dogmatic truths according to Modernist propositions that have been condemned by the authority of our spotless Mother on earth, Holy Mother Church.

Mindful of the effects of our own sins on our immortal souls and of our need to make reparation for them to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through Our Lady's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, may we make the Secret prayer for today's Holy Mass our own: "Receive the saving Victim we offer to Thee, O Lord, on the solemn feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary: and grant that, as we confess that by Thy prevenient grace she was kept free from every stain of sin; so, by her intercession, we may be delivered from all our offenses. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God."

A blessed Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary to you all!

Although this revised reflection does make more than casual references to the conciliar revolutionaries, I am not addressing today Jorge Mario Bergoglio's "Jubilee Year of Mercy" until Thursday or Friday, as our focus must be on the fairest flower of our race who was unspotted by any stain of sin. Like his predecessors before him in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, Bergoglio has no conception of the horror of personal sin and, believing as the naturalist that he is, thinks that it is actually counterproductive to urge those living in states of Mortal Sin in the objective order of things to change as they might be offended and walk away from what he thinks is the Catholic Church. No one who loves God as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively through His true Church, the Catholic Church, can be indifferent to the horror of sin, which caused Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to suffer unspeakable horrors in His Sacred Humanity during His Passion and death on the wood of the Holy Cross and caused the Swords of Sorrow to be thrust through and though the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of His Most Blessed Mother, she is is our Immaculate Queen of Heaven and of Earth.

May God have mercy on us all in this era of apostasy and betrayal.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

It is my hope to have an article about caesar's recent speech and another about Rino Fisichella's threat to have Jorge's critics excommunicated published before the "Jubilee Year of Mercy" commentary.

Hypocrisy and Vapidity Abound From Antichrist's Minions

Although a separate commentary will follow that focuses specifically on the terrorist attack perpetrated by two faithful, believing Mohammedans four days ago now at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California, this present article, whose composition started a week ago today before being interrupted by getting to, undergoing and returning from hernia repair surgery, is an effort to discuss (for the umpteenth time, it seems) the eternal hypocrisy of the lords of Modernity in the world and of Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s Modernism in his false conciliar sect.

The next article will include a commentary on our reigning caesar’s forthcoming address on the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, which is likely to be a lecture aimed at those who are “anti-Muslim” and an exhortation in favor of “gun control,” and Jorge’s “Jubilee Year of Mercy,” which is nothing other than a celebration of that which is responsible for all personal and social evils, sin.

Pray hard.

Figures of Antichrist abound.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Nicholas of Myra, pray for us.

Saint Ambrose, pray for us.

Saint Francis Xavier: Catholic Fundamentalist

Although two days after the feast day, this is a revised reflection on the life and the tireless apostolic work of the great Jesuit missionary and one the original members of Saint Ignatius of Loyola’s Company of Jesus, Saint Francis Xavier.

The title of the revised article reflects the disparaging term that Jorge Mario Bergoglio used to compare believing Catholics with modern-day faithful, believing Mohammedans who take the words of the blasphemous Koran seriously by committing acts of wanton murder against “infidels.” Saint Francis Xavier worked tirelessly for the conversion of those who belonged to false religions. Then again, he was a true Jesuit priest. Jorge Mario Bergoglio is a lay Jesuit revolutionary masquerading as a “pope.”

The work is going very slowly. Check back again tomorrow as I hope that the next original article will be published by then, the Second Sunday of Advent and the Commemoration of Saint Nicholas.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Francis Xavier, pray for us.

Saint Peter Chrysologus, pray for us.

Saint Barbara, pray for us.

Saint Sabbas, pray for us.

December 1, 2015, Update:  Prayer Request for the Repose of the Soul of the late +Father Robert E. Mason, R.I.P.

As I am in the process of recovering from hernia repair surgery yesterday a superb surgery center which is operated on Catholic principles and staffed by physicians, surgeons, nurses and administrative personnel who treat patients as human beings and not cash cows, I must get some rest prior to driving back to my family.

I did, however, want to ask the readers of this site to pray for the soul of my dear friend, the late +Father Robert E. Mason the Pastor Emeritus of Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Massapequa Park, New York.

Father Mason, was born on September 24, 1931, the Feast of Our Lady of Ransom, was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Brooklyn on June 2, 1956, and his first assignment was at Saint Aloysius Church in Great Neck, New York, and it is there that I met him three months later when I entered Kindergarten at Saint Aloysius School. His love of prayer, especially before the Most Blessed Sacrament, his tender love for and filial devotion to Our Lady, and his pastoral zeal for souls, exhibited by hearing confessions for many consecutive hours, inspired many children at Saint Aloysius School. (The Diocese of Rockville Centre, which consists of the Counties of Nassau and Suffolk on Long Island, was created out of the Diocese of Brooklyn on April 6, 1957. Father Mason became a priest of the new diocese at that time.)

Father Mason also had a great love for baseball, which he would play in the boys’ schoolyard during recess and after school hours. That very habit of playing baseball, usually dressed in a blue sweater, impressed one young boy enough to say the following when asked by other children on his school bus what he wanted to be when he grew up: “I want to be a priest just like the one who plays baseball with the boys.” I did not know this young boy at the time as he was ahead of me nor of what he had said at the time in the late-1950s. It was in 2014, though, that the boy, then sixty-four years of age, related the story to me. That boy has been known since June 29, 1978, as Father William Jenkins, who, unbeknownst to me prior to 2012, was a year ahead of me at Saint Aloysius from 1956 to 1959 before his family moved to Pennsylvania. It is a very small world.

Father Mason touched thousands of souls over the course of his fifty-nine years, five months, twenty-three days of priestly life, returning to the Mass he had offered in the early years of his priesthood after his retirement in 2007, after suffering mightily under “Bishop” John Raymond McGann in 1983 in a series of events that I have discussed before on this site.

I kept in close contact with Father Mason over the years, also sending him packages of articles from this site, and visited with him last on Friday, July 27, 2012, when we were back on Long Island for a few days.

Father Mason had quintuple bypass surgery in 1997, and was hospitalized again in 2010 with more heart problems. No, he did not see the full picture of the state of the Church Militant on earth in this time of apostasy and betrayal, but he sees it in eternity.

Father Mason is survied by his brother, Donald Mason, who suffers very badly from osteoperosis. Indeed, Father was assiduous in providng care for his brother even after his own bad fall in September.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.

May his soul and all of the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

I will write a fuller reflection about Father Mason and his many sufferings within the Diocese of Rockville Centre  within the next week after completing an article that I began writing on Sunday about the killing spree of Robert Lewis Dear at a killing center run by Planned Barrenhood in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Murderous acts committed by men such as Robert Dear, which in this instance resulted in the death of a pro-life Protestant police officer, a married man who was the father of young children, have been few and far between in the nearly forty-three years of “legal” baby-killing on a national level (and longer in several states), and they only wind up generating sympathy for Planned Barrenhood and its own murderous, exploitative.

The despicable crimes of Robert Dear, however, no more invalidate the truth about the American genocide of the preborn, whether by chemical or surgical means, than the bad example of a Catholic invalidates the truths of the Holy Faith. Truth does not depend upon human acceptance for their binding force and validity. Truth is. It is exists, and the truth is that Planned Barrenhood does the work of the devil, which is why we must pray for the conversion of all involved in its bloody “services” to women. We pray also, of course, for the repose of the souls of those killed and the consolation of their families.

There is much work for me to do after I return home from the city where the surgery center is located. As the surgery went very well, I might have that next article posted for you by Wednesday morning, followed by one about Bergoglio’s saying that the ban of the use of a certain type of contraceptive device does not matter, a belief that marks him as a support of the Anglican sect’s Lambeth decision of 1930, not Casti Connubii, which was issued by Pope Pius XI on December 31, 1930, in direct opposition to the Anglican sect’s permission for the use of contraceptive by married couples in some circumstances.

Let’s say this all together now:

Jorge Mario Bergoglio is a heretic.

I want to thank those of you who prayed for the success of my surgery. I greatly appreciate your prayers. Thank you so very much.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
