August 19, 2014, Update on the Feast of Saint John Eudes:
Although there is no new article today as other work takes priority for the foreseeable future (keep checking, though, for original articles), I do want to note that there is an important post to be find at Novus Ordo Watch Wire concerning the diaries of the late Monsignor Joseph Clifford Fenton, the great foe of Father John Courtney Murray, S.J,. and one of the seminary professors of the late John Joseph "Jackie Boy" Sullivan at Saint Bernard's Seminary in Rochester, New York, in the late-1930s. Monsignor Fenton's diaries are a treasure trove of first-hand observations concerning the rise and triumph of what was beyond this great theologian's wildest imagings before the "Second" Vatican Council: a counterfeit church that had come to life as a result of the appointment of Modernists and liberals as bishops after the death of Pope Saint Pius X on August 20, 2014, precisely one hundred years ago tomorrow. Please do take the time to read the handwritten notes of the late Monsignor Fenton as he saw the collapse of Catholicism right before his very eyes. This is truly a remarkable piece of history to make accessible to Catholics worldwide!
I also want to highight once again links to the print and Kindle versions of Conversion in Reverse: Hard copy: Conversion in Reverse: How the Ethos of Americanism Converted Catholics (Volume 1); new Kindle edition: Conversion in Reverse: How the Ethos of Americanism Converted Catholics. Volume one provides a summary of the rise of Christendom in the First and Second Millennia and connects the Protestant Revolution againt the Social Reign of Christ the King and the rise of all of the naturalism of Freemasonry with the founding of the United States of America. The new church that was rising before Monsignor Fenton's very eyes had important antecedent roots here in the United States if America, something that has been the subject of many articles on this site and will be detailed more fully in volume two of Conversion in Reverse.
What's this? Another Jorge interview? The one on the airplane returning to Rome? All right. All right. I will try to deal with this before the end of the week.
Saint John Eudes, whose feast is celebrated today, Tuesday, 19, 2013, helped to establish devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus some thirty years before the revelations that Our Lord gave to Sister Margaret Mary Alacoque. He also promoted devotion to the Holy Heart of Mary. His own priestly heart was such that he stressed the importance of priests to have the very Hearts of Jesus and Mary in the confessional, exhorting sinners to amend their lives, to be sure, but doing so with an understanding of the frailties of fallen human nature and the manner in which Our Lord wants His Mercy to be extended to the souls for whom He shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross. Saint John Eudes will help us to trust in the tender Mercies of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary during these times of apostasy and betrayal, especially as we pray the Holy Rosary to which he was so personally devoted.
Perhaps we can, in honor of Saint John Eudes, recite this salutation of his to Our Lady, who is meant to reign as the Queen of all men and all nations here on earth:
Hail Mary! Daughter of God the Father.
Hail Mary! Mother of God the Son.
Hail Mary! Spouse of God the Holy Ghost.
