Saint Catherine of Siena, T.O.P.: A Chosen Soul Who Suffered With Joy For Love of Our Lord

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.

My reflection on Saint Peter Martyr, O.P., whose feast was commemorated yesterday, Sunday, April 29, 2018, was republished about ten minutes ago. Also, I have corrected the location of Alder Hay Hospital, which is in Liverpool, not London, in yesterday's original article.

Saint Peter Martyr, O.P.: In His Own Blood

The feast of the protomartyr of the Order of Preachers, Saint Peter of Verona, who is known more commonly as Saint Peter Martyr, was commemorated yesterday, Sunday, April 29, 2018, the Fourth Sunday after Easter.

Time was spent last year to revise this brief reflection of the life and holy martyrdom of this great Dominican, who hated error in his childhood as a result of being brought up by parents who were Manicheans. Saint Peter Martyr loved the Holy Faith, and it was this love that prompted him to accept his martyrdom with serenity as he wrote "Credo in Unum Deum" in his very own blood as he fell to the ground after a heretic had stabbed him. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

No Court Has Jurisdiction Over Any Innocent Human Life

I have interrupted work on my ongoing commentary on an anti-sedevacantist video to write about the execution of Alfie Evans. Several corrections or revisions have been made, including the location of Alder Hey Hospital, which is in Liverpool, England, not London. 

This commentary is not for the faint of heart.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen, O.F.M., Cap., Opposed Ecumenism With His Very Life

As noted a few days ago (yes, I will get around to updating the Articles Archive page one of these days), I am currently preparing a long article to refute a 2014 anti-sedevacantist video that was replete with false and gratuitous assertions that have been refuted many, many times before on various sites and by various authors. Time is being taken to make points in a methodical manner, and though it is my hope to have it posted by the Feast of Saint Mark the Evangelist, I may need until the Feast of Saints Cletus and Marcellinus (and the Feast of Our Lady of Good Counsel in some places) to get the project completed.

In the meantime, I am offering a republished reflection on the life and martyrdom of Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen, O.F.M., Cap.,whose feast is celebrated today, Tuesday, April 24, 2018, within the Octave of the Solemnity of Saint Joseph.

Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen, O.F.M., Cap. opposed false ecumenism with his very life. Unlike the conciliar "popes" and their "episcopal" henchmen, Saint Fidelis came to "extirpate heresy, not to embrace it."

Finally, I ask prayers for little Alfie Evans, who is in the process of being executed by the “civilized” authorities at Alder Hay Hospital in London. His crime? Being deemed unfit to live. Pray for Alfie. Pray for his parents. Pray for the conversion of the monstrous butchers who are killing him.  (For more on Alfie’s case, see Alfie Evans Removed From Ventilation. It is impossible for any believing Catholic to watch the embedded video that is found within the referenced article without shedding a fear tears.)

I will have a commentary on Alfie’s case, which was mentioned in , and on the case of a French man, Vincent Lambert, who is likely to be starved and dehydrated to death despite the best efforts of many worldwide to save his life, after I complete my commentary on the state of the Church Militant in this time of apostasy and betrayal.

Killers in white coats abound in the world today. This stands to reason as we live in a world formed by the lies of Martin Luther and the scions of Judeo-Masonry, and the whole fabric of the ecclesiology and pastoral practice of the counterfeit church of conciliarism is based upon an “official reconciliation” with those lies. God will visit a major chastisement upon the “civilized” world for its warfare against truth, which is nothing other than a warfare against Him and His Divine Revelation.

May God have mercy on us all.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen, pray for us.

James Brien Comey: Arbiter of What Constitutes "Moral Fitness"

As seems to be the new “normal” for my work, my follow-up to my commentary of five days ago took longer than expected.

This commentary, which is hardly brief but not as long as many other articles, deals with the nest of naturalist thieves and thugs plot against their enemies, whom they deem “morally unfit,” even though almost everyone in public life, whether of the false opposite of the naturalist “left” or the “right” is morally unfit to serve in any position, whether elected or appointed, of government authority, by virtue of their support for one or more of the four sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance, starting with the daily slaughter of the innocent preborn.

Appendix B contains a summary of the life of Saint Anselm from the readings for Matin’s for his feast day, Saturday, April 21, 2018.

The next article on this site will review a video presentation that was sent to me recently. The presentation, which criticizes both sedevacantism and the “resist while recognize” movement, is premised on a straw man argument that those who reject the legitimacy of the conciliar “popes” are refusing to accept “the church that exists.” Unfortunately, for the presenter, the teaching of the “church as it exists” is not that of the Catholic Church. Indeed, the current occupant of the conciliar seat of apostasy has made no effort to disguise his contempt for the immutable teaching of the Catholic Church and attacking in the most vicious terms imaginable those who hold to it without any qualification, reservation or exception.

The next commentary will four to five days to complete. Even this commentary is being posted later than I would have liked, but as a reader of mine once wrote to me to apologize for not corresponding, “Life gets in the way.” So much so that, given the limitations of my physical strength, extensive writing after Midnight, a time after which many of the articles on this site had been posted in the past, is itself a thing of the past.

Thank you for your patience.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Anselm, pray for us.

Revised: On the Solemnity of Saint Joseph

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. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church and Protector of the Faithful, pray for us. 

Sober Up, part twelve: Mr. Trump Gets Trumped

This long commentary, which was posted about thirty minutes after the time stamp on the home page's website (which indicates when I decided to save the text after the computer's battery was running out of juice at a time I still had to attend to more details of formatting) deals with the ongoing coup against the President of the United States of America as well as the latter's surrender to his own military advisers and to Benjamin Netanyahu. An appendix with a more detailed summary of the precepts of the Just War Theory as applied to last year's American missile strike has been added and can be found in Appendix D.

We are eyewitnesses to the ultimate degeneration of the farce that passes for American politics and governance. A brief follow-up to today's article will be written later tonight, whereupon I will work on organizing my next best-selling book. (That's a joke, folks!) I will get to Gaudete et Exsaltate in due course. 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Benedict Joseph Labre, pray for us.

Jorge Follows the Anglican Sect's Path of Auto-Destruction at Warp Speed

[Update on Thursday, April 12, 2018: The next original article on this site is being written. It will deal with the political madness of the moment, a madnes that is designed to detract the truth that the world of Modernity is founded upon the lie that men can produce social order and pursue justice by their own unaided powers and without any reference, no less submission, to Christ the King and the authority of His true Church, the Catholic Church, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there can be no true social order. 

[Also, I will tackle Jorge Mario Begoglio's Gaudete et Exaltate starting next week. However, I am going to write a series of articles to cover the topics systemtically. Suffice it to say for the moment that the pestilential Modernist revolutionary from Argentina has used his latest "exhortation" as a means of denouncing believing Catholics, which means demeaning all those who defended Catholic doctine from heresy, including those millions of martyrs who shed their blood in defense of Catholic truth. Thank you for your patience.]

It’s free fall time in the counterfeit church of conciliarism. Everything about Catholic Faith Worship and Morals is up for grabs, including women “priests” and contraception. Can abortion, which is dismissed once again by Jorge Mario Bergoglio as a “bioethical issue” in his latest “apostolic exhortation, Gaudete et Exsaltate, March 19, 2018 (Jorge Mario Bergoglio is sure a glum kind of apostate chump even though he uses the word “joy” incessantly), while equating it to the “right” of foreign nations to invade the borders of other nations illegally. (I will get to this new document in a detailed manner next month.)

The counterfeit church of conciliarism is on the exact same path of auto-destruction of the heretical Anglican sect. Jorge Mario Bergoglio is simply accelerating the process at warp speed.

This is a long, detailed commentary. What else is new other than the radiator tank of our jalopy (minivan)?

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

On the Transferred Feast of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Today's article is a slightly revised reflection on the transferred feast we celebrate today, the feast which signifies the moment when the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, the very Word through Whom all things were made, personally entered into human history as He was made Incarnate in the Virginal and Immaculate Womb of His Most Blessed Mother by the power of the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, Who overshadowed Our Lady after she had given her perfect Fiat to the Will of the First Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Father, as that Will was made known to her by Saint Gabriel the Archangel.

The whole of human history is changed today--and no one can remain neutral about what happened on this day. If the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity really did become Man this day in Our Lady's Virginal and Immaculate Womb so as to redeem us on the wood of the Holy Cross thirty-three years later, as we know is indeed the case, then every person and every nation on the face of this earth must acknowledge this fact and subordinate everything to the Deposit of Faith that He has entrusted exclusively to His Catholic Church for Its eternal safekeeping and infallible explication.

We must pray to Our Lady every day so that we will never lose sight of the centrality of the Incarnation in our own lives and in the lives of our nations, never lose sight of the fact that Holy Mass itself is Incarnational as the Word Who was made Incarnate in her Virginal and Immaculate Womb is made Incarnate on altars of sacrifice under the appearances of bread and wine by true bishops and true priests. Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ spent nine months in the tabernacle of Our Lady's Virginal and Immaculate Womb, thereby sanctifying the wombs of al mothers. He is in solidarity with every child in every mother's womb. Every abortion, whether by chemical or surgical means, is an indirect attack on the Incarnation that took place this very day.

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

By the way, I spent all day Saturday and most of Sunday working on the next original article for this site. Work on it, though, was ceased about ten minutes after Midnight this morning as it is not possible to stay up for the two hours or so that it will take the finishing touches on it. However, it should be up late this afternoon depending upon the sort of news we get about what is wrong our jalopy of a 2008 Chrysler Town and Country minivan's cooling system. This is Paschaltide. However, penance is always in season!

Jorge "Che" Bergoglio Throws Another Molotov Cocktail

Much like the late Che Guevara, whose guerilla warfare in behalf of proselytizing in behalf of the “gospel” of Karl Marx and Vladimir I. Lenin was based on attacks designed for maximum impact without being apprehended, Jorge Mario Bergoglio loves to throw Molotov cocktails to confuse and bewilder believing Catholics while tickling the itching ears of Modernists and rank unbelievers.

What am I talking about?

What else?

The comments about the annihilation of souls that the false “pontiff” is reported as saying by the nonagenarian Socialist and founder of La Repubblica, Eugenio Scalfari, during the latter’s recent “conversation” with him. This was not the first time that Scafari reported the Argentine Apostate as being a believer in the heresy of annihilationism, which is adhered to by, among others, the Seventh Day Adventists an Jehovah’s Witnesses, as almost the exact same remarks had been published during Passion Week in 2015. The wretched demon from Argentina sure loves to take the attention off the events of Passiontide and Holy Week, doesn’t he?

I am sorry that this commentary, which includes a few observations about the false “pontiff’s”
“homily” during the false “Easter Vigil” liturgy he staged on Saturday, March 31, 2018, took so long to complete. Although it is a source of frustration for me not to be able to write as fast or as much I did in the past, I still try to be as thorough as possible, something that requires much more time now. All I can say is to remind those who access this site that the absence of articles does not mean an absence of work to compose them!

Finally, as a reminder, Vanquished by Our Lady: Comrade Bergoglio, was published recently.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Vincent Ferrer, O.P., pray for us. (A republished article on this great saint will appear later this afternoon.)
