Revised: Taking Her Rightful Place

Today is the feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. She who was conceived without stain of Original Sin and who committed no Actual Sins in her life did not have to have her body undergo the corruption of the grave. Separated physically from her Divine Son after His Ascension into Heaven on Ascension Thursday, although she received Him in Holy Communion, Our Lady was Assumed body and soul into Heaven to plead for us with her Divine Son as the Queen of Heaven and of Earth, the Queen to whom every man must pledge his heart's oblation, the Queen whom every nation must honor publicly with Rosary Processions.

Our Lady wants us to be in Heaven with her for all eternity. She wants our bodies to rise up incorrupt and glorious from the grave on the Last Day at the General Judgment of the Living and Dead so that our bodies can be reunited with our souls for all eternity in the glory of Heaven. We need to ask her to help us make such perfect reparation for our sins in this passing, mortal vale of tears that we will pay the debt of what we our for our sins now rather than in the fires of Purgatory. We need to ask her to help us to be serious about seeking sanctity as the consecrated slaves of her Divine Son through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. What are we waiting for?

Work on the next original article to be posted on this site continues. Events require me to work at a slower pace so as to avoid the overnight postings that were so common in the past and now take more of a toll. As I want to be methodical and orderly in my presentation of the next article, I have simply taken a good deal of time to provide the necessary documentation that the next article requires to be completed. It appears as though the article will be completed for posting by tomorrow morning, the Feast of Saint Joachim and the Commemoration of the Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost (and, in some places,a Commemoration of Saint Roch),

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

Our Lady, Queen Assumed into Heaven, pray for us.

Revised: Saint Philomena, Our Wonder Worker: Without A Single Compromise

An article from six years ago honoring our great Wonder Worker, Saint Philomena, has been revised since its initial posting earlier this morning, August 11, 2015, the Feast of Saints Tiburtius and Susanna and of the Wonder Worker herself, who is not on the universal calendar of the Roman Rite but whose cultus was confirmed by none other than Pope Saint Pius X. That's good enough for me!

The revisions made this afternoon including text from a 1945 book, Wonder Worker: Saint Philomena, Virgin Martyr, which was written by Cathy Hallack and published with ecclesiastical approbation of the Archdiocese of Dublin, Ireland, in 1945, also take note of Saint Philomena's vow of virginity, which she made at eleven years of age, and mention the fact that Diocletian was married to Prisca from 286 A.D. to the time he resigned as Roman emperor in 305 A.D. This means that Diocletian's proposal of marriage was indeed adulterous and bigamous, analogous to that of Herod the Tetrarch himself.

We are very devoted to Saint Philomena and pray the chaplet in her honor as a family every Saturday evening after oOur Lady's Most Holy Rosary. It was thus very touching for us to receive Mass propers for the Wonder worker's feast from an 1898 Missal that included an entire Mass in her holy honor. This gift was sent to us by a friend of ours, one who does not agree with us concerning the true state of the Church Militant in this time of apostasy and betrayal but has not cast us out into the wilderness and down the Orwellian memory hole as lunatics These Mass propers are a tremendous treasure, one that our friend wanted us to share with true priests so that they can offer her Mass, perhaps as a votive Mass on ferial day, in honor of our Wonder Worker, Saint Philomena. We thank our friend very much for making these propers available for those true priests who may not have had them prior to now. The link to the Mass text can be found within the body of the republished reflection below.

Our Lady of the Universal Living Rosary Association, pray for us.

Saints Tiburtius and Susanna, pray for us.

Saint Philomena the Wonder Worker, pray for us.

Serving Souls to the Point of Death

[Part two of yesterday's commentary, Willing Servants of Antichrist," should be completed for posting by Wednesday, August 12, 2015, the Feast of Saint Clare of Assisi.]

Yesterday, the Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost, the feast of Saint John Mary Vianney was commemorated. This great saint, the patron of diocesan priests, teaches us much about humility and perseverance.

Saint John Mary Vianney humbly recognized that he was not the brightest pupil, that he was, to use even his own description, slow in his studies. He had great difficulty learning his Latin. Other studies came hard to him as well. He did not give up. Helped by a wonderful mentor, Father Balley, who had worked as a carpenter during the French Revolution so as to hide his identify as a Catholic priest as he offered Mass in various hideaways and without any "communion" with the bishops and priests of the "constitutional church," John Mary Vianney persevered time and time and time again, praying to Saint John Francis Regis for help and guidance.

Yes, he was tempted to quit his studies, believing himself to unworthy of priestly ordination because of his lack of intellectual aptitude. Father Balley told him very pointedly, "You've decided to give in to the devil?" That knocked some sense into our Saint, and it should knock some sense into any young man today who might have experienced some difficulties and perhaps even gross injustices in their own pursuit of the priesthood. Never give up. We need priests, especially now in this time of apostasy and betrayal.

Always close to Our Lady, Saint John Mary Vianney was brought to the point of his priestly ordination on August 13, 1815. His superiors judged that his moral qualities had overcome any academic deficiencies that would have held others back from being ordained to the priesthood, and they were vindicated in their judgment by the long and devoted service that he gave to the people of Ars.

Oh yes, sure, he tried to run away from his people on three occasions, wanting to seek the solitude of a monastery. Each time, however, he responded to the pleas of his sheep who loved their shepherd, who spent so much time in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament and in the confessional to hear the confessions of the thousands of people who flocked from all over the world to the merits of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus applied to their souls through his priestly ministry, and returned home to Ars.

Saint John Mary Vianney, who knew failure in his studies for the priesthood, was a firm supporter of the "patron of failures," Pauline Jaricot, the foundress of Society of the Propagation of the Faith and the Universal Living Rosary Association, and zealously devoted to the cause of our great wonder worker, Saint Philomena. Saint John Mary Vianney spent himself tirelessly in behalf of the flock that was entrusted to his pastoral care. We need to invoke his intercession so that our own true bishops and priests will be fortified by his example as they seek to serve faithful Catholics, the scattering and wandering sheep of this time of apostasy and betrayal, unto eternity.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for is.

Saint John Mary Vianney, the Cure of Ars, pray for us.

Saint Lawrence the Deacon, pray for us.

Willing Servants of Antichrist

A reading of this long commentary will reveal why it took so long to complete, including what amounted to over twelve hours of work yesterday, Saturday, August 8, 2015, the Feast of Saints Cyriacus, Largus, and Smaradgus and the Commeroration of the anticipated Vigil of Saint Lawrence the Deacon, into well after two o’clock this morning, Sunday, August 9, 2015, the Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost and the Commemoration of Saint John Mary Vianney and the Commemoration of Saint Romanus.

There is a lot of new information in this article, which centers on the Saul Alinsky-soaked atmosphere within the Archdiocese of Chicago into which Blase Cupich, who has been holding forth there as the conciliar “archbishop” since November 18, 2014, has laid full claim to the apostate heritage of Joseph Louis Bernardin, who was himself carrying on the Alinksy alliances that had begun with Samuel Cardinal Stritch and had been institutionalized by Albert “Cardinal” Meyer.

This is a “root causes” article that includes the following passage from an article written in 1987 by the late Monsignor George A. Kelly, Ph.D., that recounts an address that Pope Pius XII gave to the thirtieth general congregation of the Society of Jesus on September 10, 1957, the year before he, our last true pope thus far, died:

“In view of what has gone on recently in Catholic higher education, Pius XII’s warnings to Jesuits have a prophetic ring to them. He spoke then of a ‘proud spirit of free inquiry more proper to a heterodox mentality than to a Catholic one'; he demanded that Jesuits not 'tolerate complicity with people who would draw norms for action for eternal salvation from what is actually done, rather than from what should be done.’ He continued, ‘It should be necessary to cut off as soon as possible from the body of your Society” such “unworthy and unfaithful sons.’ Pius obviously was alarmed at the rise of heterodox thinking, worldly living, and just plain disobedience in Jesuit ranks, especially at attempts to place Jesuits on a par with their Superiors in those matters which pertained to Faith or Church order (The Pope Speaks, Spring 1958, pp. 447-453).”

Does any lay Jesuit revolutionary come to your mind after reading those words?

Yes, I can think of at least one, if not many others, but the one I have in mind is the man who appointed Blase Cupich. That man's name is Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who is merely the South American version of Joseph Louis Bernardin by way of Pedro Arrupe. the Father General of the Society of Jesus in its conciliar captivity between 1965 and 1983, and scores of other of his Jesuit mentors. So little time, so many heretical Jesuits to name!

By the way, although it took a bit of research, I found Pope Pius XII's entire September 10, 1957, address to the thirtieth general congregation of the Society of Jesus on page 806 of the Acta Apostolicae Sedis (AAS) for 1957, and I have ordered a book containing each of His Holiness's 1957 addresses (the book is a collection of the material that had been published in "The Pope Speaks"). A link to the AAS has been added in the text of this commentary.

A revised reflection about Saint John Mary Vianney will be published shortly.

Thanks again for your patience as it takes longer to produce these articles than in the past.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint John Mary Vianney, pray for us.

Saint Romanus, pray for us.

Revised: To Be Transfigured In All Glory

Today is the great Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on Mount Thabor in the presence of the Apostles Peter, James and John and in the company of Moses and Elias. God the Father repeated the proclamation that He had made as His Co-Equal Son made Flesh in Our Lady's Virginal and Immaculate Womb was baptized by His cousin, Saint John the Baptist in the Jordan River prior to the assumption of His Public Ministry, "This is My beloved Son, hear yet Him."

Our Lord was transfigured in the glory that He shared with the God the Father and God the Holy Ghost for all eternity in Heaven in order to show forth His Sacred Divinity to Saints Peter, the first Pope, Saint James, the first Bishop of Jerusalem and the first of the Apostles to be martyred, and Saint James's brother, Saint John, the beloved Apostle and the Apostle of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, to help console them during the events of His Passion and Death.

It is our goal to be transfigured in glory for all eternity in Heaven. The only path to the heavenly Mount Thabor, however, is by climbing atop Mount Calvary every day of our lives, willingly bearing our crosses in reparation for our sins and those of the world as we offer whatever merit we gain for the patient and joyful endurance of these crosses to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. Indeed, our climb to Heaven by ascending first to Mount Calvary is signified every day a true bishop or a true priest completes the prayers at the foot of the altar and ascends the three steps (mystically symbolic of the Thee Persons of the Most Blessed Trinity and of the three stages of the interior life) to the altar itself. If we desire to be transfigured in all glory in Heaven we must, therefore, be willing to be shamed and humiliated by the the ignominy associated with the Holy Cross.

The glories of Heaven are worth such temporary shame and humiliation and ignominy, are they not? May Our Lady, who awaits us in the heavenly Mount Thabor and intercedes for us from there, help us to ascend to Mount Calvary every day in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass so that we can keep her company at the foot of the Cross every day our lives as a a preparation for spending all eternity in the glories of Heaven with her and Saint Joseph and all of the angels and the saints.

A blessed Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to you all.

This reflection has been revised slightly. As a new billing cycle for our internet service has begun, I have a whopping (I am being very sarcastic) twenty gigabytes at my disposal for the next thirty-one days. This is a penance all by itself!

Work has commenced on the next original article to be posted on this site. I am endeavoring to have it ready for posting by tomorrow morning, the Feast of Saint Cajetan.

Finally, in light of Jorge Mario Bergoglio's comments yesterday concerning his belief that those within the conciliar sect who divorce and remarry civilly without a conciliar decree of nullity are not excommunicated, I would like to direct readers to an article published last month, "Jorge Plays Strictly by the Montini Playbook," which contains useful information as Bergoglio's belief contradicts the teaching of none other than "Saint John Paul II," who reaffirmed traditional Catholic doctrine by the use of conciliarspeak, thus making it possible for Jorge to his own version of conciliarspeak to do as he pleases. More commentary will be provided on this matter very soon.

Blood-Stained Villains All Over The Map

As there were formatting problems that I could not see online when this article, which because of hyperlink considerations had had to be retitled, at 4:00 a.m. this morning on the Feast of Our Lady of the Snows, a miracle that the conciliar revolutionaries deny, which is why the very name of this feast was changed to that of the Dedication of Saint Major Major, I have reformatted the commentary, which is rather long. As I am up against a data usage limit on our internet service that recycles in nine and one-half hours, there is thus time and available "bytes" only to inform the "vast" readership of this site that this article is yet another commentary on Planned Barrenhood, focusing on how some of those in the false opposite of the naturalist "right," including Jeb Bush, have more ties with this evil enterprise than is known generally. There are blood-stained villains to the false opposite of the naturalist "left" and to the false opposite of the naturalist "right."

Attention returns to Jorge and his band of fiends in the next two commentaries to be posted on this site.

With the lack of available "bytes" today, however, even my revised reflection on the Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Lord cannot be posted until early tomorrow morning, although I may go to an internet "hot spot" to do some necessary research for the next original commentary as well as to revise my reflection on the Feast of the Transfiguration.

Thanks for your patience.

Our Lady of the Snows, pray for us.

With Our Lady's Weapon Held High

Health problems have gotten in the way of my writing since the late-night/early morning posting three days ago now. Although I have three articles in development, prudence dictates that I not attempt another such overnight posting. I hope that one of those articles will appear tomorrow.

Today is the Feast of Saint Dominic de Guzman, who had such great zeal for souls from his earliest days in seminary. As is well known, it was a conversation with an innkeeper in the Albigensian stronghold of Toulouse, France, changed the whole direction of his priesthood as he sought to win back souls from the darkness of an early forerunner of Calvinism, Albigensianism. Our Lady, sent by her Divine Son out of the ineffable Mercy that He has in His Most Sacred Heart, which was formed out of her own Immaculate Heart, to bring back the lost sheep (and not to beat up on the sheep when their souls are sorely distressed) out of the new form of Manicheaism that had arisen in southern France, gave Saint Dominic her Most Holy Rosary to the be the weapon to crush the Albigensian heresy. Saint Dominic de Guzman used the weapon of Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary very well and taught others how to do so.

Every Catholic, of course, owes a great deal to Saint Dominic, who walked between southern France and Rome several times during his life--and who accompanied two of the first Dominicans, Saints Hyacinth and his brother, Saint Ceslaus, on the first leg of their trip in Italy back to Krakow before he, Saint Dominic, had to turn back.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Saint Dominic de Guzman, pray for us.

Shifting Funding From One Evil Organization To Many Others

Another article on the ongoing news about the butchers of Planned Barrenhood and those seeking to defund them by shifting Federal taxpayer dollars to about nine thousand "community health centers" that provide contraception and "family planning services."

If you do not believe that contraception is evil in se, then this article is not for you. Neither is this website.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.

The Holy Machabees, pray for us.

In the Company of Jesus

Although late in the day, this is a revised reflection for today's great Feast of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus. Saint Ignatius laid down his military armor in front of an image of Our Lady in the Benedictine monastery in Montserrat, Spain, on the Feast of the Annunciation, March 25, 1522, becoming a soldier in the army of Christ the King. Saint Ignatius of Loyola was always in the "company of Jesus," always seeking to advance the cause of the Holy Faith.

Saint Ignatius of Loyola attracted men of character and determination of purpose right from the beginning, men who were serious about retarding the advances of the Protestant Revolution and seeking the conversion of pagans in far away lands. The devil hated this good work of the Society of Jesus, which he why he sought to corrupt the sons of Saint Ignatius in the Twentieth Century by means of the various propositions of Modernism. The most corrupt of them all now, of course, is Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

We need to pray to Saint Ignatius and his company of Jesuit saints in Heaven, each of whom was so tenderly devoted to the Mother of God, to help us to be as brave and faithful and gallant as they were in defending the Sacred Honor of Christ the King and of Mary our Immaculate Queen. Our Lady of the Society of Jesus, pray for us. Saint Ignatius of Loyola, pray for us.

Work proceeds on the next article, which will be yet another follow-up to Planned Barrenhood's evil ways. The next article will be relatively short, and it will focus on one simple truth: Republican efforts to defund Planned Barrenhood by assuring Federal funding for contraception and other "family planning" services is no moral victory of any kind. No matter the motives of those involved, contraception is evil, and it is contraception that paved the way for the acceptance of the surgical execution of the innocent preborn.

Killing The Messengers Yet Again

Another late hour. This article has been three days in the making. It is the last of my current series on Planned Barrenhood, although events may dictate a return to the subject at some point relatively soon.

The original next article on this site will focus on what a reasonable person could conclude is a collaborative effort on the part of the lords of Modernity in the world and the lords of Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism to eliminate all remaining opposition to the sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance, including the sin that brought fire and brimstone upon the cities of Sodom and Gommorha.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saints Abdon and Sennen, pray for us.
