Rejoice! Give Thanks! The Immaculate Maria Bambina Was Born on This Day

Today is the great feast day of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, she who is the fairest flower of our race.

The angels rejoiced around the crib where Good Saint Anne placed her all-holy daughter, who had been conceived without any stain of Original Sin nine months before, that is, on December 8. The New Eve, whose act of perfect obedience to the will of God the Father at the moment that Saint Gabriel the Archangel announced to her that she would be the very Mother of God untied the knot of the first Eve's prideful disobedience in the Garden of Eden, shone at her Nativity with exterior beauty and brightness that reflected the interior beauty and brightness of her immortal soul, filled with grace at the very moment of Immaculate Conception.

The favor of God rested upon Our Lady from all eternity. How can words capture our gratitude and joy to God for giving us Our Lady to be our own Heavenly Mother and Queen?

They can't.

Words can only approximate our gratitude and joy this day--and every day of our lives--over the fact that the Singular Vessel of Devotion in whose Virginal and Immaculate Womb would be conceived Our Divine Redeemer was born this day.

We would not have any chance of getting to Heaven if Our Lady had not been conceived and born.

We have no chance of getting to Heaven without Our Lady's help, which is why we, as the consecrated slaves of her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, must cling to her at all times, especially by means of wearing--and the fulfilling the terms of our enrollment in--her Brown Scapular and by praying as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit.

Perhaps the best birthday gift that we can give to Our Lady, apart from our worthy reception of her Divine Son in Holy Communion at a true offering of Holy Mass at the hands of a true bishop or a true priest if this is possible where one lives in this time of apostasy and betrayal, is to resolve now to do live more penitentially in reparation for our sins and those of the world world. By living more penitentially and by praying more Rosaries each day, you see, our souls might--emphasis on might--begin to be filled with more fervor and tenderness for Our Most Blessed Mother, she who made possible our salvation and who is the Mediatrix of All Graces.

The next original article on this site should appear on Monday, September 10, 2018, the Feast of Saint Nicholas of Tolentino.

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

Maria Bambia! We salute thee as the fairest flower of our race. Pray for us!

Saint Hadrian, pray for us.

Another Front in the Conciliar War, part five

Although this has taken longer that I had planned, herewith presented for your reading and reflection is the concluding part of my current series.

This commentary includes a very long appendix that has been set aside as such to avoid making its original text to be longer than it turned out to be. However, as one who does not write for the short term and who desires to provide readers with an understanding of at least some of the root causes of the apostasy that envelops at this time, I trust that there will a few readers who will take the time to plow through the main text and, understanding the distastefulness of the discussion of sodomy as found in Chapter 3 of Mrs. Randy Engel’s The Rite of Sodomy, which makes up most of the appendix, is not necessary for all those who access this site to read. However, the information is there for those who desire to read it as the mess that we are now did not happen only in the past fifty or sixty years.

Speaking of messes, it appears as though the president of the United States of America, Donald John Trump, has some of them at this time as well. In particular, the entirely unsurprising revelation that there is a cabal working inside of his administration to thwart the agenda on which he campaigned is yet another reminder that the president was ill-prepared to govern and had not chosen subordinates carefully.

Neither the president nor those who advised him during the campaign ever took the time to familiarize themselves with the details of presidential staffing and the necessity of compiling names to fill each position. This is something that the former Governor of California, Ronald Wilson Reagan, instructed his senior aides to compile before he announced a third run for the Republican Party presidential nomination in the Fall of 1979, and he was thus ready to “hit the ground” running on January 20, 1981, acknowledging that he had his own “fifth column” to deal with, namely, that led by Vice President George Herbert Walker Bush.

I will have a commentary in a few days on the sideshows of naturalism. However, I will spend most of this month trying to put out two anthologies of my articles, starting with the spiritual reflections that have been written over the years.

Thank you for your patience, and anyone desiring to make a non-tax-deductible financial gift is more than welcome to do so.

Pope Saint Pius X: Modernism's Eternal Foe, Our Eternal Friend and Spiritual Father

Unlike his immediate predecessor, Pope Leo XIII, and each of his three successors (Popes Benedict XV, Pius XI, and Pius XII), the former Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto was not in the diplomatic service of the Holy See at any time during the nearly forty-five years of his priesthood prior to his rather remarkable election as the Successor of Saint Peter on August 4, 1903. He was not prone to accept the word of diplomats, and he did not suffer lies and misrepresentations easily.

The farm boy from Riese, Italy, who served as a pastor of souls in a rough-and-tumble Italian cow town, Tombolo, and then in Salzano before becoming Bishop of Mantua and the Cardinal Patriarch of Venice, was always close to Our Lady. This tender devotion to Our Lady, which he learned from his saintly mother, helped him to keep close to the sheep even when he was the Vicar of Christ on earth.

Thanks to the sign given him by the life and death of Little Nellie of Holy God, Pope Saint Pius X was the advocate of early First Communion (and early Confirmation) and of frequent Communions. It is no accident at all that the now retired Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI made no reference to the centenary of Pascendi Dominci Gregis on September 8, 2007. Ratzinger/Benedict made absolutely no reference on August 15, 2010, to the centenary of Pope Saint Pius X's Notre Charge Apostolique, which was a ringing condemnation of the false philosophy of the Sillon that is of the essence of conciliarism. He made no reference to the one hundredth anniversary of The Oath Against Modernism on September 1, 1910 (see Witness Against Benedict XVI: The Oath Against Modernism).

How could he?

He stands condemned by the very words in these documents issued by Pope Saint Pius X.

So does the man who ignored the one hundredth anniversary of Papa Sarto's death, Jorge Mario Bergolio, back on August 20, 2014.

The contrast between the Catholicism of Pope Saint Pius X, a defender of the Social Reign of Christ the King and the confessional Catholic civil state, and the conciliarism of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who has denounced "restorationists" as "Pelagian" and "hard-headed" Pharisees while defending "healthy laicism" and "religious liberty" and the "separation of Church and State, could not be more clear.

Here is the Collect for today's feast in the Immemorial Mass of Tradition:

"O God, who for the defense of the Catholic Faith and the restoration of all things in Christ didst fill Saint Pius, Supreme Pontiff, with heavenly wisdom and apostolic courage: grant in Thy loving kindness that by following his teachings and examples we may attain eternal rewards. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, forever and ever. Amen."

Pope Saint Pius X opposed Modernism.

So must we as we refuse any "communion" at all with conciliarism or its false shepherds who are at war with the Catholic Faith.

Part five of my current series is taking longer to complete. This is partly a function of the fact that the first four parts pretty much wiped me out in the past week. However, I am working on part five, which will be the last installment as, barring some unexpected development, there is little more to add at this time.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Pope Saint Pius X, pray for us!

Another Front in the Conciliar War, part four

This installment of a series that I did not expect to write as late as a week ago today focuses on the effort of the President of Ave Maria University, Jim Towey, to defend the man he considers to be “Pope Francis” and upon the Argentine Apostate’s declaration to Gerhard Ludwig Muller that he, Jorge, could do anything he wants without giving any reason. Bergoglio believes this not only about administrative matters but about all that pertains to Faith and Morals and provides us with yet another corollary proof that he hath not the Catholic Faith and had long ago expelled himself from the bosom of Holy Mother Church.

Part five will be posted in two days, if not sooner.

Our Lady of Consolation, pray for us.

Saint Giles, pray for us.

The Seven Holy Brothers, pray for us.

Another Front in the Conciliar Civil War, part three

[Morning update on Saturday, September 1, 2018, the Feast of Our Lady of Consolation (not observed universally) and the Commemoration of Saint Giles: Part four of my current series is very near its completion. As it was not prudent to proceed with the additional work on the commentary much after Midnight,  readers are advised to check back around 4:00 p.m. today. Work on part five will then commence. 

[Additionally, I must confess that my eyes have deceived me for over five years now by my consistent failure to spell Father Carlo Maria Vigano's name properly. A reader brought the error to my attention, and I have corrected the spelling of the priest's name in each of the three parts of this series published thus far. I apologize for the error. As one whose name has been consistently misspelled by others as "Drolesky" rather than Droleskey, I should have caught the error when I made it the first time in 2013. I apologize. Thank you.]

Conciliarism’s civil war is being fought in earnest now.

This is but a brief follow-up to the commentary published about eight and one-half hours ago.

Although I still believe that Jorge Mario Bergoglio will not be forced out of the antipapal seat he currently fills, things are getting really interesting now.

One thing is for sure: conciliarism is not Catholicism no matter who is sitting in the antipapal chair.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Rose of Lima, pray for us.

Saints Felix and Adauctus, pray for us.

Saint Rose of Lima, T.O.P., Shows Us the Difference Between Heaven and Hell

This is a brief and very sightly revised version of my reflection on the life of Saint Rose of Lima, a member of the Third Order of Penance of the Order of Preachers of Saint Dominic de Guzman.

Among many other works in her devout life of prayer and austere penances, Saint Rose, who lived among a cluster of saints in Lima, Peru, exhorted the people of Lima to gather in their churches and pray their Rosaries to turn back a pending invasion of their city by a fleet of those virulent anti-Catholics, the Dutch Calvinists. Those hideous people with their diabolical beliefs that have nothing at all to do with Christianity turned back as a result of the Rosaries that were prayed to repel them in their designs to invade Lima and to sack Catholic churches and to desecrated the Most Blessed Sacrament images of the Mother of God.

May we pray to Saint Rose of Lima so that we will remain faithful to the daily recitation of Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary as the powerful weapon, after Holy Mass itself, to turn back the enemies of Christ the King in the world and in the counterfeit church of conciliarism.

The next original article on this site should be published in about ten minutes, Another original article was published late yesteday afternoon. Please scroll below.

Another Front in the Conciliar Civil War, part two

As I noted two days ago, Jorge Mario Bergoglio is not going anywhere. Oh, various conciliar “bishops” are calling an investigation of his covering-up for Theodore Edgar McCarrick. However, Bergoglio is already showing his trademarked defiance.

This commentary focuses on some of the reactions to “Archbishop” Carlo Maria Vigano’s courageous statement that came that was written on August 25, 2018, and reminds readers that conciliarism is not and can never be Catholicism.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pay for us.

Saint John the Baptist, pray for us.

Saint John the Baptist: Beheaded by Those Who Enjoy Bergoglio's Favor Today

Today is the Feast of the Beheading of Saint John the Baptist and the Commemoration of Saint Sabina. I am republishing a reflection on this feast that was substantially enlarged and revised last year with a few new revisions.  

The next original article on this site is being written. It is follow-up to the article posted on Monday. There is more work to do on it that would require me to stay up another three or four hours. However,  I should be able to post it by later after recording a video presentation on the subject. 

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

Saint John the Baptist, pray for us.

Saint Sabina, pray for us.

Another Front in the Conciliar Civil War, part one

The former conciliar “papal” nuncio to the United States of America, “Archbishop” Carlo Maria Vigano, has written a little letter about Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his knowledge of Theodore Edgar McCarrick’s perversity. Perhaps you have heard about it?

This is but a small way of offering a bit of commentary on the matter, although I will give yo a spoiler alert: I do not believe that Bergoglio is going anywhere (other than to eternal perdition if he does not abjure his errors and convert to the Catholic Faith before he dies, that is) as he is so arrogant, so sanctimonious and so defiant of all that is true and good that he is simply going to use his screeds at the Casa Santa Marta to vent his rage at Vigano while relying upon the likes of Blase Cupich and Donald Wuerl to provide him with support and comfort.

Remember this, however: the conciliar church is not of God. Do not be fooled by the war between the Girondist/Menshevik conciliar revolutionaries and the Jacobin/Bolshevik conciliar revolutionaries.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.

Saint Joseph Calasanctius, pray for us.

Saint Louis IX, King of France: Christ the King's Humble Exemplar and Viceroy

Today  is the Feast of Saint Louis IX, King of France, that great exemplar of the Social Reign of Christ the King. Saint Louis was taught by his holy mother, Blessed Blanche of Castile, to prefer death rather to commit a deliberate Mortal Sin. He heard two Masses a day and was a member of the Third Order of Saint Francis, whose patron saint he remains to this day.

Saint Louis strove to rule according to the Mind of Christ the King as He had deposited It exclusively in the Catholic Church, recognizing that he, Louis IX, would have to answer to Christ the King at the moment of his own Particular Judgment for how he ruled his subjects. His letter to his son Philip is a succinct summary of the principles of Catholic Social Teaching. It is a model for how everyone in public life should conduct himself in order to please Christ the King as the devoted client of Our Lady, she who is our Immaculate Queen.

As we had some difficulties with a different neighbor in the past few days who asked us to return a goat that they had given us without any strings or preconditions nearly three years ago, the original article that I had planned to post at this time has been delayed. Our most recent set of "difficulties" have been resolved by choosing not to fight the unjust demand by getting a young goat to replace the one that had been given. We live in a world of rank emotionalism, and no amount of reasoning is going to work with people who have the emotional maturity of toddlers as they get carried away with sentimentality without having said a word or given any indication of their change-of-heart after all this time. Oh well, souls are expensive and I, for one have many sins for which to make reparation. Just another day in rural America! 

Vivat Christus Rex!

Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Louis IX, pray for us.
