Republished: John Calvin Could Not Be Happier

One of the saddest spectacles here in a land suffused with the ethos of Judeo-Calvinist-Masonic naturalism is how the secular celebration of thanksgiving day has eclipsed Christmas Day in the homes of many Americans. This is quite by design as it was the intention of the thirty-third degree Freemason named Franklin Delano Roosevelt to promote shopping during a time when our attention must be on withdrawing from the world.

As there are a few new readers to this site, including some from Protestant and even Jewish backgrounds who have expressed an interesting in converting to the true Faith, it is my hope that this republished reflection might of assistance in demonstrating the extent to which the warfare against Christ the King that entered its overt phase with the Protestant Revolution in 1517 has shaped what passes for American "culture" to the detriment of souls and thus to all of social order.

An Advent reflection is found below, and my new article for the day, "Jorge Can't Keep Track of His Own Heresies!", is to be found below that reflection (and is listed on the Articles page, which is now editable again thanks to the efforts of the Catholic gentleman who does the updates required to maintain this site).

As Advent Begins In 2016

An original commentary, "Jorge Can't Keep Track of His Own Heresies!", was posted shortly after Midnight this morning.

This is a revised Advent reflection. Another such reflection will follow shortly, and it will then be time to write my commentary on two Latin American revolutionaries, Fidel and Jorge, which is turning out to be very long and detailed.

Jorge Can't Even Keep Track of His Own Heresies!

I made the mistake at looking at the conciliar Vatican website’s last night, whereupon I discovered that Jorge Mario Bergoglio had spoken about “eternal damnation” at the Casa Santa Marta yesterday morning, Friday, November 25, 2016, the Feast of Saint Catharine of Alexandria. Don’t worry, Bergoglio hasn’t embraced the Catholic Faith. Not even close. This article explains why.

Given the fact that I had have written about Bergoglio’s blathering at a late hour, “Sober Up, part four,” not that too many of you are interested in reading it, that is, will be delayed by a few more days, and the death of the mass murdering Marxist named Fidel Castro, who will likely receive warm words of praise from the “pope of the poor,” requires a bit of attention, of course.

There will be three revised reflections that will be posted by the middle part of the afternoon, and I want to inform readers that I am unable to update the Articles page at this time as there is some kind of technical glitch that prevents me from doing so. I hope to have this resolved soon, but I am entirely dependent upon the expertise of the Catholic gentleman who redesigned the site in July of 2014 and performs updates on the software as needed.

Finally, non-tax-deductible financial gifts are always welcomed. Now is a particularly good time for them. Thank you!

Jorge Further Dethrones Christ the King to Deify Man

It is now the evening of November 24, 2016, the Feast of Saint John of the Cross and the Commemoration of Saint Chysogonus.

This new commentary, work upon which continued most of the day yesterday and today, focuses on only two passages of Jorge Mario Bergoglio's Misercordia et Misera, November 20, 2016, dealing with "pastoral conversion" and his announcement to institute a "World Day for the Poor" that will eclipse the Novus Ordo feast of Christ the King that had been attacked by the liturgical revolutionaries on the Consilium fifty years ago.

Part four of "Sober Up" continues to be a work in progress, but should appear by Sunday, November 27, 2016, the First Sunday of Advent.

Pope Saint Clement I: Model of "Rigidity"

Well, I am still working on my commentary on Misercodria et Misera. As the work is going to require another five or six solid hours of writing, I cannot complete it as Midnight on the Feast of Pope Saint Clement I and the Commemoration of Saint Felicity approaches.

A very brief commentary on the work of Pope Saint Clement is thus being posted for your consideration.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

On The Feast of Saint Cecilia

Although there was simply not enough time to do justice to the Argentine Apostate's new anti-apostolic letter, Misercordia et Misera, I have reworked and revised material from an earlier reflection about the saint whose feast is celebrated today, Saint Cecilia. It is only just to give her some small bit of attention today as she is important enough in the history of the Church for her name to be included in the Canon of the Mass.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Cecilia, pray for us.

Sober Up, part three

This is a continuation of my commentary on the election. Part four, which will focus on the election results themselves, will follow in a few days as Jorge Mario Bergoglio's latest missive issued in his name, Misercordia et Misera, requires more attention than can be given it late on today's feast of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. I promise you, however, to provide a commentary on this for posting on the Feast of Pope Saint Clement I, Wednesday, November 23, 2016.

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

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Elizabeth of Hungary: Suffering At The Hands of Her Own Family

This is a revised and expanded reflection on the suffering enduring by the very first member of the Third Order of Saint Francis of Assisi, Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, who suffered much at the hands of her family members and even at the hands of the poor whose welfare she provided so generously when her husband, Louis, was the Landgrieve of Thuringia.

Work on part three of "Sober Up" continues. Once again, I am trying to be methodical and thorough, but I do expect the commentary to be posted by Monday morning. Thank you for your patience.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

November 18, 2016, Update

As I am trying to be as methodical and thorough as possible, part three of "Sober Up" is taking a very long time to complete, and it is not likely to be posted until Monday, November 21, 2016, the Feast of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, given the paucity of time available to me today and tomorrow.

As the commentary goes against the grain of the current enthusiasm that many have over the election results, care is being taken to provide factual evidence to tamp down this enthusiasm and to remain wary of natualistic developments that seem too "good" to be true. Thus it is that I must take the time needed to make distinctions and to provide documentation of various points. The commentary will still be very relevant on Monday, perhaps even more so if some of President-elect Donald John Trump's Cabinet appointments are made known by that time.

Today, Friday, November 18, 2016, is the Feast of the Dedication of the Basilicas of Saints Peter and Paul. It was on this date in 1907 that Pope Saint Pius X issued Praestantia Scripturae to impose a penalty of excommunication upon those who dared to contradict Lamentabili Sane, July 1, 1907, and Pascendi Dominci Gregis, September 8, 1907. This is a penalty that applies to each of the conciliar "popes," including the current universal face of apostasy, Jorge Mario Bergoglio. 

As has been noted so frequently on this site in the past forty-four months since Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s ascent to power within the walls of the Occupied Vatican on the West Bank of the Tiber River, we are witnessing only the perfection of the inherent degeneracy of conciliarism’s false teachings and its sacramentally barren liturgical rites. It was only a matter of time for men who have propagated grave doctrinal errors would come to propagate ever manner of moral error imaginable in the name of a false “mercy” and “tolerance.”

The counterfeit church of conciliarism is a false church. Its "pontiffs" and "bishops" have given us a steady diet of apostasy, blasphemy and sacrilege over the course of the past fifty-five years.

Once again, Antichrist is not going to give his calling card. We are going to have to use the faculty of reason, guided by the sensus Catholicus and the clear teaching of the Catholic Church, to recognize who he his and who has done his bidding for him in advance of his coming, and this is true in the civil realm, my friends, as well as in that of the ecclesiastical.

This truth must be faced squarely by those who have thus far not given away everything (respect, friendships, outlets for the publication of articles, access to media appearances, personal financial security) by continuing to insist what is contrary to the Catholic Faith: that a heretic can sit on the Throne of Saint Peter.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis is a heretic. So have been his predecessors.

Pope Saint Pius X and Pope Pius XII both reminded us that those who treat lightly of the decrees of the Roman curial congregations and who view papal encyclical letters and pronouncements as non-binding as they are not issued ex cathedra that a Catholic is bound by such decrees and statements as are merely reiterations of what is contained in the Faith Itself, which is entirely irreformable:

8. They are free from all blame who treat lightly the condemnations passed by the Sacred Congregation of the Index or by the Roman Congregations. (Pope Saint Pius X, Lamentabili Sane, July 1, 1907.)

In his encyclical letter "Providentissimus Deus," given on November 18, 1893, our predecessor, Leo XIII, of immortal memory, after describing the dignity of Sacred Scripture and commending the study of it, set forth the laws which govern the proper study of the Holy Bible; and having proclaimed the divinity of these books against the errors and calumnies of the rationalists, he at the same time defended them against the false teachings of what is known as the higher criticism, which, as the Pontiff most wisely wrote, are clearly nothing but the commentaries of rationalism derived from a misuse of philology and kindred studies. Our predecessor, too, seeing that the danger was constantly on the increase and wishing to prevent the propagation of rash and erroneous views, by his apostolic letters "Vigilantes studiique memores," given on October 30, 1902, established a Pontifical Council or Commission on Biblical matters, composed of several Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church distinguished for their learning and wisdom, to which Commission were added as consulters a number of men in sacred orders chosen from among the learned in theology and in the Holy Bible, of various nationalities and differing in their methods and views concerning exegetical studies. In so doing the Pontiff had in mind as an advantage most adapted for the promotion of study and for the time in which we live that in this Commission there should be the fullest freedom for proposing, examining and judging all opinions whatsoever, and that the Cardinals of the Commission were not to reach any definite decision, as described in the said apostolic letters, before they had examined the arguments in favor and against the question to be decided, omitting nothing which might serve to show in the clearest light the true and genuine state of the Biblical questions under discussion. Only after all this had been done were the decisions reached to be submitted for the approval of the Supreme Pontiff and then promulgated.

After mature examination and the most diligent deliberations the Pontifical Biblical Commission has happily given certain decisions of a very useful kind for the proper promotion and direction on safe lines of Biblical studies. But we observe that some persons, unduly prone to opinions and methods tainted by pernicious novelties and excessively devoted to the principle of false liberty, which is really immoderate license and in sacred studies proves itself to be a most insidious and a fruitful source of the worst evils against the purity of the faith, have not received and do not receive these decisions with the proper obedience.

Wherefore we find it necessary to declare and to expressly prescribe, and by this our act we do declare and decree that all are bound in conscience to submit to the decisions of the Biblical Commission relating to doctrine, which have been given in the past and which shall be given in the future, in the same way as to the decrees of the Roman congregations approved by the Pontiff; nor can all those escape the note of disobedience or temerity, and consequently of grave sin, who in speech or writing contradict such decisions, and this besides the scandal they give and the other reasons for which they may be responsible before God for other temerities and errors which generally go with such contradictions.

Moreover, in order to check the daily increasing audacity of many modernists who are endeavoring by all kinds of sophistry and devices to detract from the force and efficacy not only of the decree "Lamentabili sane exitu" (the so-called Syllabus), issued by our order by the Holy Roman and Universal Inquisition on July 3 of the present year, but also of our encyclical letters "Pascendi dominici gregis" given on September 8 of this same year, we do by our apostolic authority repeat and confirm both that decree of the Supreme Sacred Congregation and those encyclical letters of ours, adding the penalty of excommunication against their contradictors, and this we declare and decree that should anybody, which may God forbid, be so rash as to defend any one of the propositions, opinions or teachings condemned in these documents he falls, ipso facto, under the censure contained under the chapter "Docentes" of the constitution "Apostolicae Sedis," which is the first among the excommunications latae sententiae, simply reserved to the Roman Pontiff. This excommunication is to be understood as salvis poenis, which may be incurred by those who have violated in any way the said documents, as propagators and defenders of heresies, when their propositions, opinions and teachings are heretical, as has happened more than once in the case of the adversaries of both these documents, especially when they advocate the errors of the modernists that is, the synthesis of all heresies.

Wherefore we again and most earnestly exhort the ordinaries of the dioceses and the heads of religious congregations to use the utmost vigilance over teachers, and first of all in the seminaries; and should they find any of them imbued with the errors of the modernists and eager for what is new and noxious, or lacking in docility to the prescriptions of the Apostolic See, in whatsoever way published, let them absolutely forbid the teaching office to such; so, too, let them exclude from sacred orders those young men who give the very faintest reason for doubt that they favor condemned doctrines and pernicious novelties. We exhort them also to take diligent care to put an end to those books and other writings, now growing exceedingly numerous, which contain opinions or tendencies of the kind condemned in the encyclical letters and decree above mentioned; let them see to it that these publications are removed from Catholic publishing houses, and especially from the hands of students and the clergy. By doing this they will at the same time be promoting real and solid education, which should always be a subject of the greatest solicitude for those who exercise sacred authority.

All these things we will and order to be sanctioned and established by our apostolic authority, aught to the contrary notwithstanding. (Pope Saint Pius X, Praestantia Scripturae, November 18, 1907.)

20. Nor must it be thought that what is expounded in Encyclical Letters does not of itself demand consent, since in writing such Letters the Popes do not exercise the supreme power of their Teaching Authority. For these matters are taught with the ordinary teaching authority, of which it is true to say: "He who heareth you, heareth me";[3] and generally what is expounded and inculcated in Encyclical Letters already for other reasons appertains to Catholic doctrine. But if the Supreme Pontiffs in their official documents purposely pass judgment on a matter up to that time under dispute, it is obvious that that matter, according to the mind and will of the Pontiffs, cannot be any longer considered a question open to discussion among theologians. (Pope Pius XII, Humani Generis, August 12, 1950.)

Jorge Mario Bergoglio is an apostle of Antichrist, and those who refuse to see this and who keep waiting for the "next outrage" to occur are simply continuing to accustom themselves to accept the falsehood that apostasy, heresy, blasphemy and sacrilege can be associated with a true Sovereign Pontiff. Such people are preparing to accept Antichrist himself without a qualm of conscience, and Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis is his poster-boy as to how to accomplish his end in these our times. 

Keep close, if possible, to Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in His Real Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament, if this is possible where you live.

Pray as many Rosaries each day as your state-in-life permits.

Offer all of the sufferings of the moment to the Throne of the Most Blessed Trinity as the consecrated slave of Christ the King through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart Mary, whose triumph will be manifest when will least expect it.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon!

Viva Cristo ReyVivat Christus Rex!
