Father Junipero Serra: Under Attack From the World and Misrepresented By Bergoglio, part one

Part one of two. This article was posted just about two hours dawn on the Feast of Saint Monica. However, I stayed up as I wanted to complete part one, which took a long time because of the textual material included to help readers know more about the true legacy of Father Junipero Serra, O.F.M.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Monica, pray for us.

May 2, 2015, Update and Brief Reflection on the Feast of Saint Athanasius 

With thanks aplenty for your patience, work does proceed on the commentary and reflection that I am writing about the riots in Baltimore, Maryland. It was, however, necessary to attend to unexpected errands for the family almost every day this week, and it is just no longer for me to resume writing at 10:00 p.m. given the time that it takes to write and format an article.

I do, however, want to take a few moments well after Midnight to explain that there will be another commentary posted before the one that is in the process of being written. 

A reader was kind enough last evening to inform me about a resolution pending in the California State Legislature that result in the removal of one of its two allotted state statues in the United States Capitol. It is only a matter of time before the most recent of those statues is removed as it that of the late President Ronald Wilson Reagan. The pending resolution, which has the support of the New Age, pro-abortion, pro-perversity environmental wacko who is now in his fourth term as Governor of California, Edmund Gerald “Jerry” Brown, Jr. (the first two ran from January 6, 1975, until January 3, 1983; Brown later served two terms as the Mayor of Oakland, California, from 1999-2007 before being elected as the Attorney General of the State of California on November 6, 2006, and had been California Secretary of State between 1971 and 1975), would result in the removal of the oldest of California’s two statues from the United States Capitol. The oldest statue is that of Father Junipero Serra, O.F.M., the great missionary of California. Here is a link to a story about the matter on the sedeplenist Lifesite News website: Pols Say, Father Serra Must Go. Fray Serra’s statue is to be replaced with that of the late astronaut, Sally Ride, who died in 2012 at the age of sixty-one. Sally Ride’s statue, you see, would make a “statement” as she was a practitioner of perverse sins against the Sixth and Ninth Commandments, and this is the real reason that Fray Serra’s statue is likely to be replaced.

As I have a deep, longstanding personal devotion to Father Serra, who is not legitimately “beatified” as Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II was not a true and legitimate Successor of Saint Peter, and have long contrasted his tireless work for souls in Alta California, which is the modern day State of California, with the greedy likes of those who grubbed for gold sixty-five years after his death in 1784, a commentary on this development will be written today for posting by tomorrow, the Feast of the Finding of the Holy Cross and the Commemoration of the Fourth Sunday after Easter and the Commemoration of Pope Saint Alexander I and Saints Juvenal, Eventius and Theodulus.

We live at a time of complete apostasy and its attendant chaos, a time in which those who defect from nothing in that is contained in the Sacred Deposit of Faith are considered “odd”. It is very fitting, therefore, that today is the feast day of the great Saint Athanasius of Alexandria, whose valiant deeds were described by Dom Prosper Gueranger. O.S.B., in The Liturgical Year in such a manner as apply the uncompromising heroism of this much-persecuted bishop and Doctor of the Holy Church, who was exiled on five different occasions from Alexandria, to our very own times of apostasy and betrayal today:

The Court of our divine King, during his grandest of seasons, is brilliant beyond measure; and to-day, it is gladdened by the arrival of one of the most glorious champions of the world of truth for his holy cause. Among the guardians of the word of truth, confided by Jesus to the earth, is there one more faithful than Athanasius? Does not his very name remind us of dauntless courage in the defense of the sacred deposit, of heroic firmness and patience in suffering, of learning, of talent, of eloquence–in a word, of everything that goes to from a Saint, a Bishop, and a Doctor of the Church? Athanasius lived for the Son of God; the cause of the Son of God was that of Athanasius; he who blessed Athanasius, blessed the eternal Word; and he who insulted Athanasius insulted the eternal Word.

Never did our holy faith go through a greater ordeal than in the sad times immediately following the peace of the Church, when the bark of Peter had to pass through the most furious storm that hell has, so far, let loose against her. Satan had vainly sought to drown the Christian race in a sea of blood; the sword of persecution had grown blunt in the hands of Diocletian and Galerius; and the Cross appeared in the heavens, proclaiming the triumph of Christianity. Scarcely had the Church become aware of her victory when she felt herself shaken to her very foundation. Hell sent upon the earth a heresy which threatened to blight the fruit of three hundred years of martyrdom. Arius began his impious doctrine, that he who had hitherto been adored as the Son of God was only a creature, though the most perfect of all creatures. Immense was the number, even of the clergy, that fell into this new error; the Emperors became its abettors; and had not God himself interposed, men would soon have set up the cry throughout the world that the only result of the victory gained by the Christian religion was to change the object of idolatry, and put a new idol, called Jesus, in place of the old ones.

But he who had promised that the gates of hell should never prevail against his Church, faithfully fulfilled his promise. The primitive faith triumphed; the Council of Nicaea proclaimed the Son to be consubstantial with the Father; but the Church stood in need of a man in whom the cause of the consubstantial Word should be, so to speak, incarnated–a man with learning enough to foil the artifices of heresy, and with courage enough to bear every persecution without flinching. This man was Athanasius; and everyone that adores and loves the Son of God, should love and honour Athanasius. Five times banished from his See of Alexandria, he fled for protection to the West, which justly appreciated the glorious confessor of Jesus’ divinity. In return for the hospitality accorded him by Rome, Athanasius gave her of his treasures. Being the admirer and friend of the great St. Antony, he was a fervent admirer of the monastic life, which, by the grace of the Holy Ghost, had flourished so wonderfully in the deserts of his vast patriarchate. He brought the precious seed to Rome, and the first monks seen there were the ones introduced by Athanasius. The heavenly plant became naturalized in its new soil; and though its growth was slow at first, it afterwards produced fruit more abundantly than it had ever done in the East.

Athanasius, who has written so admirably upon that fundamental dogma of our faith–the divinity of Christ–also has left us most eloquent treatises on the mystery of the Pasch: they are to be found in the Festal Letters which he addressed each year to the churches of his patriarchate of Alexandria. The collection of these Letters, which were once thought to be irretrievably lost, was found, a few years back, in the monastery of St. Mary of Scete in Egypt. The first, for the year 329, begins with these words, which beautifully express the sentiments we should feel at the approach of Easter: ‘Come, my beloved brethren, celebrate the feast; the season of the year invites you to do so. The Sun of justice, by pouring out his divine rays upon you that the time of the solemnity is come. At such tidings, let us keep a glad feast; let not the joy slip from us with the fleeting days, without our having tasted of its sweetness.’ During almost every year of his banishment, Athanasius continued to address a Paschal Letter to his people. The one in which he announced the Easter of 338, and which he wrote at Treves, begins thus: ‘Though separated from you, my brethren, I cannot break through the custom which I have always observed, and which I received from the tradition of the Fathers. I will not be silent; I will not omit announcing to you the time of the holy annual feast, and the day on which you must keep the solemnity. I am, as you have doubtless been told, a prey to many tribulations; I am weighed down by heavy trials; I am watched by the enemies of truth, who scrutinize everything I write, in order to rake up accusations against me and thereby add to my sufferings; yet notwithstanding, I feel that the Lord strengthens and consoles me in my afflictions. Therefore do I venture to address to you the annual celebration; and from the midst of my troubles, and despite the snares that beset me, I send you, from the furthermost part of the earth, the tidings of the Pasch, which is our salvation. Commending my fate into God’s hands, I will celebrate this feast with you; distance of place separates us, but I am not absent from you. The lord who gives us these feasts, who is himself our feast, who bestows upon us the gift of his Spirit–he unites us spiritually to one another, by the bond of concord and peace.’

How grand is the Pasch, celebrated by Athanasius, an exile on the Rhine, in union with his people who keep their Easter on the banks of the Nile! It shows us the power of the Liturgy to unite men and make them, at one and the same time, and despite the distance of countries, enjoy the same holy emotions and feel the same aspirations to virtue. Greeks or Barbarians, we have all the same mother country, the Church; but that which, after faith, unites us all into one family, is the Church’s Liturgy. Now there is nothing in the whole Liturgy so expressive of unity as the celebration of Easter. The unhappy Churches of Russia and the East, by keeping Easter on a different day from that on which it is celebrated by the rest of the Christian world, show that they are not a portion of the One Fold of which Our Risen Jesus is the One Shepherd. (Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., The Liturgical Year: Pascal Time, Book II, pp. 403-406.)

We must defend the Faith as we accept the rebukes that come out way in silence as we suffer in joy Christ the King as His consecrated slaves through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, especially during this month of May and on this First Saturday in May, thanking Our Lord abundantly for opportunity to be more perfectly conformed to His Holy Cross and as we seek to draw inspiration from this prayer of Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., to our glorious Saint of this day:

Intercede for the country [Egypt] over which was extended thy patriarchal jurisdiction; but forget not this Europe of ours, which gave thee hospitality and protection. Rome defended thy cause; she passed sentence in thy favour, and restored thee thy rights; make her a return, now that thou art face to face with the God of infinite goodness and power. Protect and console her Pontiff, the successor of that Julius who so nobly befriended thee fifteen hundred years ago. A fierce tempest is now raging against the Rock on which is built the Church of Christ; and our eyes have grown wearied for a sign of calm. Oh! pray that these days of trial be shortened, and that the See of Peter may triumph over the calumnies and persecutions which are now besetting her, and endangering the faith of many of her children.

Thy zeal, O Athanasius! checked the ravages of Arianism; but this heresy has again appeared, in our own times, and in almost every country of Europe. Its progress is due to that proud superficial learning which has become one of the principal perils of the age. The Eternal Son of God, consubstantial with the Father, is blasphemed by our so-called philosophers, as being only Man–the best and greatest of men, they say, but still only Man. They despise all the proofs which reason and history adduce of Jesus’ divinity; they profess a sort regard for the Christian teaching which has hitherto been held, but they have discovered (so they tell us) the fallacy of the great dogma which recognizes in the Son of Mary the Eternal Word who became incarnate for man’s salvation. O Athanasius, glorious Doctor of of holy Mother Church! humble these modern Arians; expose their proud ignorance and sophistry; undeceive their unhappy followers, by letting them see how this false doctrine leads either to the abyss of the abominations of pantheism, or to the chaos of scepticism, where all truth and morally are impossibilities.

Preserve within us, by the influence of they prayers, the precious gift of faith, wherewith our Lord has mercifully blessed us. Obtain for us that we may ever confess and adore Jesus Christ our eternal and infinite God, ‘God of God; Light of Light; True God of True God; Begotten not men; who for us men, and for our salvation, took Flesh, of the Virgin Mary.’ May we grow each day in the knowledge of this Jesus, until we join thee in the face-to-face contemplation of his perfections. Meanwhile, by means of holy faith, we will live with him on this earth that has witnessed the glory of his Resurrection. How fervent, O Athanasius, was thy love of this Son of God, our Creator and Redeemer! This love was the very life of thy soul, and the stimulus that urged thee to heroic devotedness to his cause. It supported thee in the combats thou hadst to sustain with the world, which seemed leagued together against thy single person. It gave thee strength to endless tribulations. Oh! pray that we may obtain this love–a love which is fearless of danger, because faithful to him for whom we suffer–a Brightness of his Father’s glory, and Infinite Wisdom, emptied himself, taking the form of a servant and humbled himself, becoming obedient unto death, even to the death of the Cross. How else can we make him a return for his devotedness to us except by giving him all our love,as thou didst. O Athanasius! and by ever singing his praise in compensation for the humiliations which he endured in order to save us? (Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., The Liturgical Year: Paschal Time: Book II, pp. 411-413.)

Saint Athanasius has given us marching orders, and those marching orders do not make us Pharisees, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, or “closed-minded:”

They have the premises – but you have the Apostolic Faith. They can occupy our churches, but they are outside the true Faith. You remain outside the places of worship, but the Faith dwells within you. Let us consider: what is more important, the place or the Faith? The true Faith, obviously. Who has lost and who has won in the struggle – the one who keeps the premises or the one who keeps the Faith? True, the premises are good when the Apostolic Faith is preached there; they are holy if everything takes place there in a holy way …

“You are the ones who are happy; you who remain within the Church by your Faith, who hold firmly to the foundations of the Faith which has come down to you from Apostolic Tradition. And if an execrable jealousy has tried to shake it on a number of occasions, it has not succeeded. They are the ones who have broken away from it in the present crisis. No one, ever, will prevail against your Faith, beloved Brothers. And we believe that God will give us our churches back some day.

“Thus, the more violently they try to occupy the places of worship, the more they separate themselves from the Church. They claim that they represent the Church; but in reality, they are the ones who are expelling themselves from it and going astray. Even if Catholics faithful to Tradition are reduced to a handful, they are the ones who are the true Church of Jesus Christ.” (Letter of St. Athanasius to his flock.)

Let these words continue to be our consolation in these days when it is easier for most people to believe in the mythologies of naturalists in the political realm and the Modernist apologists of false "mercy" and a "God of Surprises" in the theological real, men who esteem false idols, than it is to hold steadfast to the Faith and lose human respect and possibly even earn the mockery, if not scorn, of one's own family members. Who wants to be "different" in this time of alleged "mercy"?

We turn to Our Lady with every beat of our hearts, consecrated as they must be to Most Sacred Heart of her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, pledging to her in this month of May to pray the Litany of Loreto every day in addition to praying as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit. We can crown Our Lady as Queen of our hearts by making reparation for our sins and those of the whole world by enslaving ourselves to her Divine Son through her Immaculate Heart, giving unto whatever merit we earn each day so that she can dispose of that merit however she sees fit for the honor and glory of the Most Holy Trinity and for the good of souls in the Church Suffering in Purgatory and here in the Church Militant on earth.

The final victory belongs to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart. We must consider it a privilege that we are alive in these times to plant a few seeds for the restoration of the Church Militant on earth and for the restoration of Christendom in the world.

Saint Catherine of Siena: Suffering With Joy

Today’s article is a slight revision and republication of a very brief and wholly inadequate reflection on the life of the great mystic, stigmatist and spiritual directress of souls, Saint Catherine of Siena, T.O.P., whose feast day is the day after that of the Protomartyr of the Order of Preachers, Saint Peter of Verona (Saint Peter Martyr). Saint Catherine was calumniated during her life, and she was blamed for having precipitated the Great Western Schism by convincing Pope Gregory XI to return to return to Rome in 1378. She suffered all such calumny with joy.

What’s our excuse for grumbling and/or murmuring about our crosses and the state of chaos in which we live in this time of apostasy and betrayal? Remember, everything thing that happens to us has been ordained by the hand of God Himself with exquisite perfection. Saint Catherine of Siena never lost an opportunity to suffer well. Indeed, she begged to suffer more and more for love of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. So should we.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Catherine of Siena, T.O.P., pray for us.

I learned late last night of the death of the Reverend Nicholas Gruner, who died suddenly from a heart attack at the Fatima Center in Canada. This news both shocks and saddens me as I knew him personally and spoke at three of his conferences (1996 in Rome; 1998 at a former place of employment, Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois; and in 2004 in southern California) and two Catholic Family News conferences (2004 and 2005) at which he, of course, spoke. I had also spoken with him on the telephone a number of times I had the opportunity also to be in his company for dinner several times. It thus that I am personally moved by this news.

Readers of this site know full well where I stand on the state of the Church Militant in this time of apostasy, including having come to understand that the conciliar “popes” have been figures of Antichrist and that the conciliar rite of episcopal “consecration” is invalid, meaning that there have not been true popes, including the current apostate, to perform a valid consecration of Russia to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart with all of the world’s bishops (there are only a handful of elderly true bishops in the conciliar church, although most of the bishops of the Oriental Rites are true bishops). Such a consecration needs to be done, and it will be done once a true pope is restored to the Throne of Saint Peter in God's good time.

This having been noted, though, I am very indebted to the late Reverend Nicholas Gruner for a scholarly presentation he gave in Rome in 1996 that convinced me that “Pope John Paul II” had not fulfilled Our Lady’s Fatima Message in 1984 with the “consecration” that he had attempted. Reverend Gruner laid out the facts, which were very compelling to one who was as of yet nine and one-half years away from coming to realize that Karol Wojtyla was a false claimant to the Throne of Saint Peter and that nothing he did or attempted to do carried any kind of true papal authority. Gruner’s talks about the Fatima children were very inspirational, including one that he had given in Rome on the sufferings of Jacinta Marto from the Spanish influenza that would take her young life. I was helped to understand more of Our Lady’s Fatima Message and of the suppression of the Third Secret of Fatima.

The death of the Reverend Nicholas Gruner reminds us of these words contained in the First Epistle of Saint Paul to the Thessalonians:

[1] But of the times and moments, brethren, you need not, that we should write to you; [2] For yourselves know perfectly, that the day of the Lord shall so come, as a thief in the night. [3] For when they shall say, peace and security; then shall sudden destruction come upon them, as the pains upon her that is with child, and they shall not escape. [4] But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. [5] For all you are the children of light, and children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

[6] Therefore, let us not sleep, as others do; but let us watch, and be sober. [7] For they that sleep, sleep in the night; and they that are drunk, are drunk in the night. [8] But let us, who are of the day, be sober, having on the breastplate of faith and charity, and for a helmet the hope of salvation. [9] For God hath not appointed us unto wrath, but unto the purchasing of salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, [10] Who died for us; that, whether we watch or sleep, we may live together with him. (Thessalonians 5: 1-10.)

Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ Himself said:

[13] Watch ye therefore, because you know not the day nor the hour. (Matthew 25: 13)

May Our Lady pray for each us now and at the very hour of our death.

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.

Given a few unexpected penitential experiences yesterday while running errands for the family, the next action-filled, much-anticipated by the multitudes original article for this site will not appear until tomorrow. I am sorry. Flat tires sometimes inhibit speedy travel to and from one's destinations. All to thee, Blessed Mother. All to thy Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you! Save souls! Penance is better than ever in 2015!

In His Own Blood

The length of the time needed to complete yesterday’s article, which was posted several hours after Midnight, made it impossible to complete the next original article for this site, which will deal with the anarchy taking place in Baltimore, Maryland, in response to that city’s mayor’s desire to give “protesters” “space to destroy.” Destroy the protesters did.

Then again, the work of diabolical destruction has been ongoing ever since an Augustinian monk posted ninety-five theses on the door of Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany, on October 31, 1517. Bergoglio may very well go to Germany to celebrate Martin Luther’s “renewal” after he goes to Fatima, Portugal, for the one hundredth anniversary of Our Lady’s apparitions to Jacinta and Francisco Marto and Lucia dos Santos in the Cova da Iria. Bergoglio is a destroyer in his own right, following the example of his antipope predecessors. We need to stay in a State of Sanctifying Grace and keep close to Our Lady, especially through her Most Holy Rosary and as the consecrated slaves of her Divine Son, Christ the King, through her own Most Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart

Today’s revised article is a reflection on Saint Peter the Martyr (Saint Peter Verona), O.P. He was willing to write “Credo in Unum Deum” in his own blood. Are we?
A blessed Octave Day of the Solemnity of Saint Joseph and commemorate feast day of Saint Peter Martyr, O.P., to you all!

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Just A Hypocritical Farce From Beginning to End

One of the professors who served on my doctoral dissertation review committee forty years ago, the late Dr. Ronald Stout, who has a very fine professor and kind Catholic gentleman, said that I had the “shoot until nothing moves” method of writing. It was a very accurate observation, and it is one to keep in mind as those who desire to read this long, detailed article, which contains many links that took much time to insert, plow their way through its text.

Mind you, the current article, which deals with several topics, including Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s removal of two conciliar “bishops” because of their protection of clerical predators and another because what was said to be his “extravagant” spending on a residential palace while he, Bergoglio, has indemnified other “bishops” guilty of the same, if not worse crimes, may not be for every reader. However, there is much for the “permanent record,” well, at least until government censors shut down this site once and for all, something that I know will occur sooner or later, for readers to consider. Bergoglio’s promotion of “climate change” and Hillary Rodham Clinton’s recent statement that cultural and religious beliefs that are opposed to the chemical and surgical execution of the innocent preborn must “change” also come in for some brief observations.
There is much work to be done. Baltimore, Maryland, is burning. Hillary is lying. Jorge is running off at the mouth. The work on these on other subjects will get done when time permits. This current article’s posting was delayed when I lost internet service around 1:30 a.m. yesterday morning. Thank you for your patience.

Septenary In Honor of Saint Pegrine (as taken from "Behold Thy Mother")

Sharon has once again typed up a devotion, the Septenary in Honor of Saint Peregrine Laziosi, as found in “Behold Thy Mother,” which has been reprinted by Refuge of Sinners Publishing at the request of the Sentman and Gauvin families, who had secured permission from the Servite Fathers to do so, who funded a run of two hundred books. Information about ordering these beautifully reprinted books may be found after the Septenary of Saint Peregrine Laziosi, who feast day, which is not on the General Roman Calendar of the Catholic Church is May 2, the Feast of Saint Athanasius.

Work is almost completed on the next original article for this site. As it is the Third Sunday after Easter and the topic to be dealt with is most unpleasant, to say the least, it was far more important to format the Septenary of Saint Perezine Laziosi and to include a photograph of the book’s cover. Check back tomorrow.

Opposing False Ecumenism With His Very Life

As is the case more often than not, plans to complete my article about “Bishop” Robert Finn’s treatment at the hands of the “merciful” Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who coddles the likes of Godfried Daneels, Battista Ricca and, among many others, Juan Barros, who was pelted with garbage during his “installation” as the conciliar “bishop” of Osorno, Chile, because his perversions and protection of those who are perverted are so very known, and the Argentine Apostate’s coddling of the coven known as the “Leadership Conference of Women Religious” (LCWR) has been postponed for another day or more. It took longer than expected to revise this current posting, my reflection on the life and martyrdom of Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen, O.F.M., Cap., who opposed false ecumenism with his very life. There is another subject that needs to be taken up for posting tomorrow before getting to one that I meant to write yesterday.

Determined Not To Accept The Truth of Truth Himself, Christ the King, part five, the end

This is a long article with much detail, thus concluding my current series of articles.

The next article on this site will deal with the now deposed "Bishop" Robert Finn and Jorge Mario Bergoglio's concomitant coddling of other "bishops" who do not carry Finn's supposedly "orthodox" baggage.

Why Live In Fear With Saint Joseph So Near?

Today is the Solemnity of Saint Joseph in Paschaltide, a feast that originated under the title of “The Patronage of Saint Joseph” in 1847 by Pope Pius IX before being given its current name in 1911 and then repositioned two years later on the Wednesday following the Second Sunday after Easter by Pope Saint Pius X. This reflection is by way of an annual reminder, slightly revised, to trust in Saint Joseph, the Patron of the Universal Church and the Protector of the Faithful, in these times of persecution by the forces of Antichrist in the world and in the counterfeit church of conciliarism.

Although work has been done on part five, the concluding part, of my current series, the late night/early morning posting of part four prevents me from doing this. It should be posted by tomorrow morning, being followed soon thereafter by a commentary about “Bishop” Robert Finn and the coven known as the Leadership Conference of Women Religious.

Determined Not To Accept The Truth of Truth Himself, Christ the King, part four

What started out as a four part series has turned into five parts. Attention will be turned after the publication of part five to the Argentine Apostate’s doing what I had predicted two years ago would turn out to be the case: complete vindication for the revolutionary coven known as the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR). See “Francis the Feminist,” published on April 10, 2013, as it is listed on the Articles page of this website. (I am sorry. I simply cannot provide hyperlinks in the introduction to my new articles without having to create a new page, and the hour, which is now past three o’clock, Eastern Daylight Saving Time, is too late to do such a thing.)

Part four of the continuing series picks up where part three left off concerning the babbling of naturalists concerning what they would do when faced with going to a “marriage ceremony” between two persons of the same gender engaged in perversely unnatural acts in violation of the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law.

Two quick matters, though.

A very kind reader, Mrs. Teresa Gauvin, wrote to me about a week ago now to inform me of the wonderful news that she has taken up herself to reprint “Behold Thy Mother,” the book of prayers devoted to Our Lady of Sorrows that was published by the Servites in 1949. Not surprisingly, the latter-day Servites were not interested in republishing the book, but they did give her permission to do so herself. I will explain the remarkable story of how this came to be in a few days. However, Mrs. Gauvin has copied the book as is, enlarging the print, though, to make it more readable.

Suffice it to say that Mrs. Gauvin saw the text that from the book that Sharon had transcribed prior to my formatting it for posting on this site, and thus it is that it is my happy privilege to inform you of how you may purchase “Behold Thy Mother.”

Readers who desire to purchase a copy for themselves may e-mail Mrs. Gauvin at msgauvin@icloud.com. The book costs $10.00 in addition to shipping, which is nominal. Mind you, Mrs. Gauvin seeks no profit, asking only to reimbursed for the cost of printing the book and for the shipping. This is a great service for love of Our Sorrowful Mother that she has performed. Please pray at least one decade of Our Lady’s Most Holy Rosary for Mrs. Gauvin and her family.

Mrs. Gauvin also informed Sharon yesterday morning that her printer, Refuge of Sinners Publishing, was approached by someone to whom Mrs. Gauvin had given a book, deciding thereupon to print copies, though not yet listed on the company's website, under their own auspices. “Behold Thy Mother” costs $15.99 plus shipping. Mrs. Gauvin can provide you with those details as well.

Do avail yourselves of this great spiritual treasure!

Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.

Saint Anselm, pray for us.
