[Late night update on May 9, 2019: The next article is progressing. Indeed, it was progressing nicely yestersday until I had to place what was a fourth, time-consumig phone call to our former satellite internet provider after having had an unexpected and substantial charge (at least for me) for not returning an obsolete radio transmitter that no less than three agents had told me that I had did not have to return.
[Much of this evening was spent dealing with the problem, in a phone conversation with a corporate employee at a Filipino call center (outsourcing, of course). The employee told me that the three other representatives with whom I spoke before I returned the company's mode two months ago were incorrect, that, yes, I had to return the radio transmitter. That's right, three representatives got it wrong. Nonetheless, though, I was told that I would get a refund based on what the first representative had told me but that the refund would not show up again until June 6, 2019! Penance is better than ever in 2019, and my sins, which are so many, deserve as much penance as God in His great mercy chooses to send me. We are gratetful to a friend who has assisted us at this time given the unexpected shortfall.
[Thus, patient readers, I should have the next article completed for posting by late Satuday or on Sunday. One or two books will follow in a few weeks thereafter. Thank you.]
Today, May 8, 2019, is the [commemorated] Feast of the Dedication of the Church of Saint Michael the Archangel in these traditional venues that adhere to the General Roman Calendar of 1954 but is a double major feast otherwise. It is worthwhile to note that this feast was abolished altogether by Antipope John XXIII in 1960. Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria/Paul VI abolished the Prayers after Low Mass, including the Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel, that had been made optional by Roncalli in 1960. Interesting, no?
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, which are just as important as the Sixth and Ninth Commandments.
Our Lady, Queen of the Angels, pray for us.
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us and keep us!
