"Humanity" Has Come to "Teach Us to be More Human"

You just can’t make any of this up.

“Father” Thomas Rosica, C.S.B. (Saint Basil, “Father” Rosica, wanted nothing to do with heretics; he opposed them, he was not “nice” to them), said in a televised interview three days ago that Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the very personification of “goodness” and “kindness” was coming to the United States of America to “teach us how to be more human.” The entire quotation in the body of this article, which focuses on Rosica’s revelation that Bergoglio will not raising “political issues” (namely, the daily slaughter of the preborn) when he meets with Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro at the White House in less than six hours from the time of the posting of this article. “Humanity” could not possibly do this to a man, Obama/Soetoro, who has laid out the red carpet for him.

Fresh off of his appeasement of the murderous Castros in Cuba, “Pope Francis” is going to appease Obama/Soetoro while oozing with such warmth for him and his “kindness.”

You just cannot make any of this up.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Pope Saint Linus, pray for us.

Saint Thecla, pray for us.

Previewing Bergoglio's Congressional Speech

This "preview" was written six months ago now when it was announced that the great appeaser of Communists and pro-aborts, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who is also an enabler of those engaged in the sin of Sodom and who have flaunted even the conciliar canonical rules that govern the indissolubility of a ratified and consummated marriage, was going to address a joint session of the Congress of the United States of America on Thursday, September 24, 2015, the Feast of Our Lady of Ransom. Although it is a caricature of what the hideous heretic will say in less than two days, one can rest assured that the Argentine Apostate will make many of the points below.

One's heart sinks when considering the depths to which this terrible man has gone to enable evil in the world. It is one thing to sin and to be sorry as one seeks out absolution from a true priest in the Sacred Tribunal of Penance. It is quite another to enable and promote sin while mocking those who try to do penance for their sins and who understand that evil is never the foundation of order within individual souls or within nations. Evil is never the foundation for peace.

Our Lady of Ransom, pray for us.

Saint Thomas Villanova, pray for us.

Saint Maurice and Companions, pray for us.

Revised: From Caesar's Collector of Tributes to God's Collector of Souls

Although late in the day, this is still the Feast of Saint Matthew the Apostle and Evangelist. Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ called Levi from his duties as a collector of tribute for Caesar to follow Him. Levi quit his position as a tax collector to become a collector of souls for God and His true Church.

Saint Matthew wrote His Gospel to convince his fellow Jews to accept Our Lord as the Divine Redeemer and to convert to the true Faith, Catholicism. This is quite a contrast with the work of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who esteems Talmudic Judaism as an instrument of "justice" although it denies the Sacred Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ and wages warfare upon those who seek to restore the Social Reign of Christ the King, to say nothing of the fact that many of its rabbis,including his pal Abraham Skorka, support abortion and perversity under cover of the civil law. Quite a difference. It's the difference between fidelity and apostasy, between Catholicism and conciliarism.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.

Saint Matthew the Apostle, pray for us.

Today's original article, "Respect and Consideration for Fidel Castro?", was published around 1:30 a.m. Please scroll below. Be assured that there will be articles each day during Bergoglio's visit to the United States of America.

Thank you.

As Jorge Worries about the Rainforest and "SDGs"

It is around 3:15 a.m. on Friday, September 18, 2015, the Feast of Saint Joseph of Cupertino and the Commemoration of Ember Friday in September. There is a lot packed into this relatively short article.

Although the limited number of “gigabytes” available to me each month handicaps my ability to complete articles with the sort of timeliness that had been customary, I will do my best in coming days to comment on Bergoglio’s trip to Communist Cuba and to the United States of America. I cannot watch anything in “real time” on my computer given the lack of access to the internet available to us. However, I will do the best that I can in light of this difficulty.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Joseph of Cupertino, pray for us.

Today is a day of total abstinence from meat and meat products and a day of obligatory fast for those between the ages of twenty-one and fifty-nine, although it is commendable for those of us who are no longer obliged to observe the fast to do so if one’s health permits.

On the Feast of the Seven Dolors of the Blessed Virgin Mary

[Today's original article, "More Hateful of Catholicism Than Martin Luther Himself," can be found by scrolling below. It was posted around 2:00 a.m today.]

Today is the Feast of the Seven Dolors of the Blessed Virgin Mary in September.

We are called to meditate on the Seven Dolors of Our Lady every day of our lives. While there are many good meditations on the sufferings of Our Lady, including those provided by the revelations of Anne Katherine Emmerich and the Venerable Mary of Agreda, the late Father Frederick Faber has given us much food for inspirational meditation in his The Foot of the Cross, published originally as The Dolors of Mary in 1857.

Consider this brief excerpt from Father Faber's reflections:

"But let us make the world stand still, and see how it looks. If our common love for God, which is so poor, is irritated by the sight, what must Mary have suffered? For what is irritation to our weakness to her would be the most deep and transcending sorrow. God comes to His creation. It does not stir. It cannot. It lies in the hollow beneath Him, and has no escape. He comes in the beauty of a mercy, which is almost incredible, because it is so beautiful. But seemingly it does not attract the world. He draws nigh. Creation must do something now. It freezes itself up before His eye. He may have other worlds, more fertile, more accessible to Him, than this. In the spiritual tropics, where the angels dwell, He may perhaps be welcome. But not here. This is the North Pole of His universe. He shed His life's blood upon it, and it would not thaw. It is unmanageable, unnavigable, uninhabitable for Him. He can do nothing at all with it, but let His sun make resplendent colored lights in the icebergs, or bid the moon shine with a wanner loveliness than elsewhere, or fill the long-night sky with the streamers of the Aurora, which even the Esquimaux, burrowing in his hut, will not go out to see. The only difference is that the material pole understands its business. which is to make ice in all imaginable shapes; whereas we men are so used to our own coldness, that we do not know how cold we are, and imagine ourselves to be the temperate zone of God's creation."

Our sins helped to thrust those Seven Swords of Sorrow through and through Our Lady's Immaculate Heart at various points during her life, including during her Divine Son's Passion and Death. We must resolve never to grieve her Immaculate Heart again as consider our joy and our privilege to live penitentially as the consecrated slaves to her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the same Immaculate Heart. (Father Frederick Faber, The Foot of the Cross, the Dolors of Mary.)

We can help to make reparation for our sins that have grieved the Immaculate Heart of Mary if we pray more and more Rosaries each day, if we help to propagate devotion to her Seven Dolors. Indeed, Our Lady promises us the following graces if we promote devotion to her Seven Dolors:

1) I will grant peace to their families

2) They will be enlightened about the divine mysteries.

3) I will console them in their pains and I will accompany them in their work.

4) I will give them as much as they ask for as long as it does not oppose the adorable will of my divine Son or the sanctification of their souls.

5) I will defend them in their spiritual battles with the infernal enemy and I will protect them at every instant of their lives.

6) I will visibly help them at the moment of their death, they will see the face of their Mother.

7. I have obtained (This Grace) from my divine Son, that those who propagate this devotion to my tears and dolors, will be taken directly from this earthly life to eternal happiness since all their sins will be forgiven and my Son and I will be their eternal consolation and joy.

As a terrible sinner, I am counting on my own promoting of devotion to the Seven Dolors of the Blessed Virgin Mary to help me just a little bit at the moment of my Particular Judgment. What about you?

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

More Hateful of Catholicism Than Martin Luther Himself

Well, at long last, although never by popular demand, here is the long-delayed new article for this site. It is relative short and to the point about Jorge Mario Bergoglio being even more hateful of Catholicism than Martin Luther Himself.

We are grateful to the six people who have made non-tax-deductible financial gifts in the past few days. We did, however, receive quite a glorious cross yesterday, the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross: news that a used engine will cost $1700 to purchase and another $1300 to repair. We accept this cross with joy, love and gratitude. I am, however, forced to do that which I have avoided doing for most of the past year or so, that is, to ask those who have the means to be of assistance to us to make a non-tax-deductible gift as soon as possible. Thank you.

A blessed Feast of the Seven Dolors of the Blessed Virgin Mary to you all!

Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.

Saint Nicomedes, pray for us.

Revised: Lift High the Cross

The Saviour of the world hung on the wood of the Holy Cross: Ecce lignum Crucis, in quo salus mundit pependit (Behold the wood of the Cross, on which hung the Saviour of the world. (Adoration of the Cross, Good Friday Liturgy.)

The Cross of the Divine Redeemer was displayed prominently on street corners and in the nooks and crannies of every village in Europe during the era of Christendom. There is no "expiration date" on the Cross of the Divine Redeemer's relevance to the life of any man or of any nation. We must lift high the Cross in our own daily lives and we must plant it firmly in the soil of our nation without any apology whatsoever as Catholicism is the one and only foundation of personal and social order.

We must also remember that Our Lady stands at the foot of her Divine Son's Most Holy Cross in every true offering of Holy Mass just as she stood at the foot of the Holy Cross on Good Friday. She stands with us as we bear our own crosses in our daily lives. We must, therefore, seek the assistance of the Mother of God in lifting high her Divine Son's Holy Cross in our daily lives, praying as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit.

The cross is ever present in each of our lives, and for this we must say with Saint Francis of Assisi, Deo gratias! Penance is the path to Heaven. We do our penances by carrying our crosses with gratitude. Isn't it great to be a Catholic?

Work continues on the next article which has been slowed by our own current cross of being without a vehicle as we endeavor to raise funds for our car's necessary repairs and to rent one in the interim. Again, this is a cross that has been perfectly fitted for us from all eternity by the loving hand of God for His greater honor and glory and our own sanctification as the consecrated slaves of His Co-Equal and Co-Eternal Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. Hail, O Holy Cross! Hail!

A blessed Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross to each of you.

Revised: A Name That Must Be On Our Lips At All Times

Today is the Feast of the Holy Name of Mary, commemorating the victory won by King Jan Sobieski of Poland over the Mohammedans at the Gates of Vienna on September 12, 1683. The troops under the command of Jan Sobieski exclaimed "Jesus, Mary, Sobieski!" as they prayed their Rosaries and routed the Turkish forces.

Each of us does battle every day with the Turks, that is, with the forces of the world, the flesh, and the devil. We must call upon the Holy Name of Mary, something we do at least one hundred fifty-three times every day if we pray all fifteen mysteries of Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary. This sweet name of the Mother of God must be on our lips at all times, and it must be exclaimed by public officials as she is honored as the Queen of Heaven and on earth, yes, of each and every nation on earth, including the United States of America. No one should be ashamed at any time to proclaim the Holy Name of Mary publicly. Indeed, we must do so with joy and confidence.

Saint Louis de Montfort taught us in True Devotion to Mary that those who are the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary should address others with a Marian salutation. How felicitous it is, therefore, to greet others with Ave Maria! or a Salve Regina! How glorious it is to make invocations such as "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, we love you, save souls!" or "Sweet Heart of Mary, be my salvation" or "Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and the hour of our death."

May Our Lady, she who is our life, our sweetness and our hope, help us to grow in this virtue, especially in this time of apostasy and betrayal.

Sweet Name of Mary, be our salvation.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Well, yesterday was supposed to be devoted to completing an article that ties in the upcoming renaming of a piazza in Rome in honor of the drunken, lecherous heretic Martin Luther with the fast-paced, head-spinning series of events that have spiraled out of control as the septuagenarian juvenile delinquent, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, invents nonexistent grounds for ratified and consummated marriages to be declared null. Luther did not intend the mess that is still unfolding in the world today. That mess occurred because of his own revolution's inevitable consequences that he did not foresee as his intellect was so darkened by his sins that he could refused to admit that was his own false, heretical beliefs that set Europe on the course of moral decay whose extent horrified him.

Similarly, the "conservative" within the conciliar hierarchywho have tried to "stabilize" the conciliar revolution have never understood that they have been trying to save that which is false of its very nature and is thus from the devil as they have done the adversary's bidding repeatedly by breaking the First and Second Commandments with their praise of false religions and active, full and conscious participation in "ecumenical prayer" gatherings in their own dioceses. Revolutions always eat their own, and that's what going on right now throughout the structures of the false church that arose with the blessing and direction of the first of six usurpers of the Throne of Saint Peter since the death of Pope Pius XII on October 9, 1958, Angelo Roncalli/John XXIII.

My work on this article, however, was impeded by the slight little fact that our automobile's engine died yesterday, this time for good, in not the most optimal of weather conditions. It's a long story, which unfolded I was parked on the shoulder of a major highway in heavy traffic for several hours as I kept in touch with Sharon and Lucy back home, and it is far from clear to us how this all gets resolved. We are in need of prayers. We are also very much in need of readers making use of the PayPal donation buttons as this is a time when I must do that which I tried to avoid doing in the past few years, namely, to make a general appeal to the readership of this site for non-tax-exempt financial gifts. Thank you.

Without a vehicle and the prospect of not having one for quite a lengthy period of time, I will have plenty of time today to complete the next original article for this site.

This current cross, one of several we have been given at this time, is accepted with love ad gratitude as we know that it has been fashioned for us from all eternity by the loving hand of God for His greater honor and glory and for our own sanctification as the consecrated slaves of His Co-Equal and Co-Eternal Divine Son, Christ the King, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

All to thee, Blessed Mother. All to thy Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, we love you! Save souls!
