Circus Jorge, part one

Work still proceeds on part ten of “Polluting the Atmosphere with the Smoke of Antichrist.”

For the moment, however, I offer a commentary on the first two days of the Circus Jorge that is taking place at the Paul the Sick Audience Hall. There is a lot of interesting material in this commentary, including Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II’s 2002 Motu Prorpio sought to prevent the misuse of general absolution, especially in cases where habitual sinners have no intention of reforming their lives.

Live by “living tradtion,” die by “living tradition.”

To sleep for a few hours.

A revised reflection on today’s feast, the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, will be published later today.

A blessed Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary to you all!

According Full "Respect" To Those Steeped In Unnatural Vice

Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s “synod of sin” has commenced.

This brief commentary discusses “Father” Federico Lombardi’s statement about a low-level “monsignor” in the conciliar “Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (false faith that it is, of course) who had posted a video and issued a set of demands for “changes” concerning conciliar doctrine and praxis toward those engaged in perversity. As the views expressed by the “monsignor,” who is from Poland and has not been suspended by his diocese despite admitting is in a perverted “relationship” with a man, are those held by a majority of the “synod fathers,” the fact Federico Lombardi, yet another lay Jesuit, wanted to express “respect for the “events” and “personal situations” of Father Krystof Olaf Charamsa, is not all surprising.

This is the time of the Great Apostasy, Those who do not see that this is so ought to stop fooling themselves before it is too late.

Part ten of “Polluting the Atmosphere with the Smoke of Antichrist” should appear tomorrow, the Feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, if I am physically able to complete it by then.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Placidus, pray for us.

Revised: From Riches to Lady Poverty to Eternal Treasures

Today, October 4, 2015,is the Nineteenth Sunday after Pentecost and the Commemoration of the Seraphic Saint, Saint Francis of Assisi, who was born as Giovanni di Bernardone in 1182 (some say 1181). This article is a poor way to pay tribute to the follower of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ who gave up earthly riches to embrace Lady Poverty, earning himself eternal riches in the process, eternal riches that helped to save the Church Militant on earth from falling down at a time of great clerical corruption. It is my hope, however, that this poor tribute to Saint Francis, a saint of profound Eucharistic piety and deep, tender devotion to the Mother of God who rejoiced in the midst of trials and sufferings and insults and even the rejection of his own father and brother, will provide some food for meditation about the glorious life of this joyful saint of prayer and penance. Saint Francis of Assisi, pray for us! A blessed feast day to our friends to all Franciscans, including those of the Third Order.

A commentary about the beginning of Jorge's "synod of bishops," whose results are already predetermined, will appear tomorrow, Monday, October 5, 2015, the Feast of Saint Placidus. Part ten of "Polluting the Atmosphere with the Smoke of Antichrist" will be posted on Tuesday, October 6, 2015, the Feast of Saint Bruno.

Finally, one reader was kind enough to respond with a non-tax-deductible financial gift yesterday that makes possible the payment of two bills. We need others to make such gifts at this time. Thank you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Francis of Assisi, pray for us.

Revised: Holiness Unalloyed

Although very late in the day, my revised reflection on the life of Saint Therese of the Child Jesus and of the Holy Face is now posted. (Today’s original commentary, "Polluting the Atmosphere With the Smoke of Antichrist, part nine", was posted a little after four o’clock this morning. Part ten, however, will not appear until Monday or Tuesday. Please scroll below or see the link at the top of this revised reflection.)

Marie-Frances Therese Martin was born to the holiest of parents, Louis and Zelie Martin, who endeavored to shield their children as much as possible from the influences of the world. The sacrifices made by Louis and Zelie Martin produced five vocations to the consecrated religious life. Zelie Martin's prayers from eternity after her death assisted her husband as he raised one canonized saint and four other daughters who served Holy Mother Church as brides of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The simplicity and love of the Little Flower teaches each of us to pursue holiness as befits redeemed creatures, seeking the things of Heaven in this life so that we may spend our Heaven doing good here on earth.

Saint Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face was raised in a family that stressed the importance of withdrawing from the world. Louis and Zelie Martin were very protective of their daughters, making sure to instill within them a firm commitment to the Virtue of Modesty. Indeed, Sister Genevieve of the Holy Face, Marie-Frances Celine Martin, was shocked at the immodesty that had overtaken France with the Allied bombing of Normandy forced the cloistered Carmelites of the Carmel out of their cloister and into the world in June of 1944. She noted this in a letter to Mother Agnes Mary that was dated July 7, 1944:

"After fifty years of eremetical living, to find myself all of a sudden uprooted and thrown into the midst of the world, with veil raised, is a true martyrdom for a recluse like me. It seems to me as if we're in a station where everybody is crowding around and intermingling. We sleep fully clothed on benches; we take our meals in haste, standing up in the dark; we look with astonishment and grief at the feminine styles stripped of all dignity." (As quoted in Celine: Sister Genevieve of the Holy Face, Sister and Witness of St. Therese of the Child Jesus, by Father Stephane-Joseph Piat, O.F.M., p. 130.)

What would Saint Therese and Sister Genevieve say today about the feminine attire that is considered "modest" and "acceptable" in Catholic chapels all across the vast expanse of the ecclesiastical divide where some version of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition is offered or simulated? They were not been approving, and that is because their holy parents taught them Catholic right from wordily wrong. Why is this so difficult for many traditionally-minded Catholic parents to understand, accept and abide by today?

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Therese of Lisieux, pray for us!

Polluting the Atmosphere With the Smoke of Antichrist, part nine

Given the fast-breaking news that transpired yesterday, Friday, October 2, 2015, the Feast of the Holy Guardian Angels, the Kim Davis Meets Antipope Francis story has been made the foundation of part nine of this current series, which will probably consist of two other parts before it concludes.

As it is now past 4:00 a.m., suffice it to say that this commentary, though detailed, packs a punch or two. Please do take a look at it, remembering as well that it is important at this time to make non-tax-deductible financial gifts. Help is needed to continue this site, especially to meet the internet access bill which must be paid on Monday.
Thank you.

A revised reflection on the life of Saint Therese of the Child Jesus and of the Holy Face will be posted later today, Saturday, October 3, 2015, and the Articles page will be updated at the same time.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Therese of the Child Jesus and of the Holy Face, pray for us.

Revised: Put Your Guardian Angel To Work At All Times

Today's original article, "Polluting the Atmosphere With the Smoke of Antichrist, part eight," was published during the overnight hours. An effort is underway to have part nine ready for publication tomorrow, the Feast of Saint Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face. The final part will deal with a number of subjects, including Bergoglio's sub rosa meeting with Rowan County, Kentucky, Clerk Kim Davis.

This his article is a brief, revised reflection in honor of the Angels sent to us by God Himself to help guard us in this passing, mortal vale of tears as they seek to guide us to the glories of the Beatific Vision of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. Each of us must have a special devotion to--and daily conversation with--our Guardian Angels, making sure to ask them to greet the Guardian Angels of all of the people we meet each day. Our Guardian Angels have been given to us by God help get us back to Him in Heaven. We should make good use of our Guardian Angels. Unlike many of us who have lazy bones at times, our Guardian Angels want to work hard to help us get home to Heaven. We should put them to work every day! And we should make sure to thank our Guardian Angels at the end of each day for keeping us safe in body and, eternally more important, of course, in soul.

Our Lady of the Angels, pray for us.

Our Holy Guardian Angels, pray for us and protect us.

Polluting the Atmosphere With the Smoke of Antichrist, part eight

A revised reflection on our Guardian Angels will be posted later today, Friday, October 2, 2015, the Feast of the Holy Guardian Angels.

This is part eight of my current series, which was been tweaked in a few places since its initial posting. There may be up to four more segments.

Finally, the PayPal buttons on these pages provide a way for those of you who agree with these article to support its continuation. Thank you.

Putting Love of God and His Doctrines Above All Else

Although I am making very good progress on part eight of my current series, it appears as though I need another seven to eight hours of sustained writing to complete it. At 1:30 a.m., however, I am going to suspend work for now and pick up later on today, September 30, 2015, the Feast of Saint Jerome. I am sorry.

This republished article is a brief reflection, written last year, on Saint Jerome, who put the love of God above all else. Consider just one quotation from the work of this prolific writer and translator of the Bible into the Latin Vulgate:

"It is a smaller sin to follow evil which you think is good, than not to venture to defend what you know for certain is good. If we cannot endure threats, injustice, poverty, how shall we overcome the flames of Babylon? Let us not lose by hollow peace what we have preserved by war. I should be sorry to allow my fears to teach me faithlessness, when Christ has put the true faith in the power of my choice." (Saint Jerome, Prologue to the Treatise Against the Pelagians.)

How many traditionally-minded Catholics who are as of yet attached to the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism who know for certain that it is not good to praise false religions or to enter places of false worship or to treat the "clergy" of false religions as having a mission from the true God of Divine Revelation to serve and save souls refuse to do what is good, that is, to defend the honor and glory and majesty God and His Sacred Deposit Faith in order to indemnify the author of Summorum Pontificum, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, whose successor, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis, has laid bare for all the world to see that he is "worried" by those who "want to return to the past"?

We must always defend what we know to be true as servants of the greater honor and glory of God. Saint Jerome did. What's our excuse?

Finally, I ask for your prayers for my dear wife, Sharon, who turns fifty-two years of age today. Thank you.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Jerome, pray for us.

Revised: Sancte Michael Archangele Defend Nos in Praelio

Today is the Feast of the Dedication of the Church of Saint Michael the Archangel.

We need Saint Michael's intercession more now than ever before. We need his help in our own daily battles with the forces of the world, the flesh, and the devil. And, of course, we need his help with to remain faithful to the true Faith without making any concessions at all to conciliarism or its false officials who blaspheme God so regularly, so boldly, so repeatedly and with a chorus of bobble heads making excuses for them in their sins against the First and Second Commandments.

Our Lady, Queen of the Angels, pray for us.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us and keep us!

Well, I hit a figurative “brick wall” while revising this reflection last evening. Suffering from Jorge-induced sleep deprivation, I chose to case work until able to resume this afternoon after attending to duties and errands.

Work herewith resumes on part eight of my current series, which will be published by tomorrow morning. Thank you for your patience

SEPTEMBER 28, 2015, UPDATE: FEAST OF SAINT WENCESLAUS

Today’s original article, Polluting the Atmosphere With the Smoke of Antichrist, part seven, was published around 3:00 a.m. today. Although I cannot guarantee that part eight will appear tomorrow, Tuesday, September 29, 2015, the Feast of the Dedication of the Church of Saint Michael the Archangel, an effort is being made to do so. As noted earlier this morning, two other parts will appear after the next one to complete my review of Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s recent exercise of the “new evangelization” that leaves no room for Our Lord Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in the presence of non-Catholics.

Speaking of the “new evangelization,” I have a suggestion for Senor Bergoglio that some of those around him might want to take seriously.

Given the claim announced by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) that rivers of salt water have been found on the surface of the planet Mars, perhaps “Pope Francis” could be sent there on to advance his “gospel of mercy” on the Red Planet.

Look, I am serious. It would take six months for “popecraft” to get to Mars, whereupon he would have about eighteen to twenty months to evangelize the “life forms” he might find there. He might even run into Ray Walston while he’s there. Lots and lots of possibilities. After all, the man his lost in space anyway, right?

Let’s mount a campaign now: “Send Jorge to Mars!” Now!

Anyhow, back to the earth for a minute, yes, Jorge gave another interview on the flight back to Ciampino Airport in Rome from Philadelphia. He was asked about a trip to Red China, and he did not rule it out of the question. This is so as the man who engineered Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict’s sellout of the underground Catholics in Red China, Pietro Parolin, is Bergoglio’s own Secretary of State.

Also, this is an “I told you so” moment as I wrote the following in "Humanity" Has Come to "Teach Us to be More Human" a week ago now:

Another conciliar revolutionary, one who was present at the "beginning" of the conciliar revolution and helped to chart its course, Joseph Ratzinger, sold out the faithful Catholics of the underground Church in Red China, justifying his June 30, 2007, Letter to Bishops, Priests, Consecrated Persons and Lay Faithful of Red China partially on the assertion that "progress" was being made in that country. What progress? (Just as an aside, I believe that Bergoglio, fresh off his appeasement in Cuba, might ask Obama/Soetoro to put in a "good word" for with Red Chinese President Xi Jinping when the latter goes to White House on Thursday as Jorge leaves for the City of New York, York. Bergoglio would have to "open up" Red China to his brand of appeasement in the name of "encounter" and "mutual respect." Given the results in Cuba, which the Chicoms are doubtlessly monitoring, Bergoglio may just get his chance to take his appeasement act to the Great Wall of China.) 

This point was amplified in :

The “past” to which Bergoglio referred is very much the present of Cuba in its Communist captivity as the dissidents who wanted to meet with him were rounded up while he remained silent about the Castro regime’s brutality during his visit or to denounce the arrests of the dissidents thereafter.

I believe that there is a reason for this that transcends Bergoglio’s personal support for the way in which Communist regimes have provided “social justice,” including universal health care supposed “income equality,” to the masses: he wants to make it clear to the murderers of Beijing that they can invite him to Red China and be assured of the fact that he will validate the so-called Catholic Chinese Patriotic Association, thus putting the final nail in the coffin of the brave underground Catholics who have suffered so much for the past sixty-five years. Although the Chicom leadership is a wary bunch of murderers and spies, they might just take the chance of inviting the lay Jesuit to do for them with their dissidents what he did for those in Cuba (and what he has done for those who oppose the unconstitutional, immoral, illegal and unjust policies of Obama/Soetoro in the United States of America).

The Chicoms are very cautious, but they might take the chance on inviting Jorge if it means validating their rump church and thus scuttling Pope Pius XII’s Ad Apostolorum Principis, June 29, 1958, once and for all. Berogoglio would be more than happy to scold underground Catholics, who have suffered for so long under Communist rule, as he doesn’t mention Red China’s “past” which is as much of the present as it is in Cuba under the Castros.

Speaking of interviews. Novus Ordo Watch as a very good analysis of the answer, which will be covered in part ten of my current series, that Bergoglio gave about the possibility of his being an Antipope: Jorge Speaks on Antipope and Antichrist.

Finally, my reflection on the life of Saint Wenceslaus has been posted: .

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Wenceslaus, pray for us.
