Fact and Fiction

by Thomas A. Droleskey


Although two recent articles, Lest We Forget and Memo to Joseph Biden and Nancy Pelosi and Their Conciliar Enablers, have dealt with the support for child killing under cover of law by Baptized and Confirmed Catholics in public life such as Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., aged sixty-six, and Nancy Pelosi, aged sixty-eight, this particular article is being produced for posting on the Feast of Saint Augustine of Hippo in light of Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi's efforts to discuss the "history" of the Catholic Church's opposition to abortion and her claim that it has only been in the past "fifty" years that the Church has defined that life begins at conception. It is necessary separation fact and fiction from people who live in a fictional world of their own making.

Fact: The Catholic Church does not define when life begins. Although various theologians in the early centuries of the Church were unsure as to when life begins and/or when the soul entered the body of a preborn human being, the simple facts of biology teach us that life begins at conception. This simple fact has been fortified by the discovery of DNA. Each of us has a specific and unique genetic code from the moment of conception to the point of our deaths. The only things added after conception are time, nutrition and hydration.

Fact: Although various theologians speculated in the early centuries of the Church as to the time when life begins and/or when the soul enters the human body, the condemnation of chemical and surgical abortion by the Catholic Church and by her Fathers was consistent and it was unanimous. Nancy Pelosi is a liar or one gigantic ignoramus if she claims otherwise. (Yes, it is possible that she is taking Church history lessons from United States Senator John F. Kerry, D-Massachusetts, who said in 2004 that he subscribed to the views of the "Second" Vatican Council that had been called by "Pope Pius XXIII." It is possible that Kerry got this information from watching "Peabody's Improbable History" on Rocky and His Friends or Bullwinkle.)

Although I have had many an occasion to criticize "Father" Frank Pavone's political judgments and his embrace of the Americanist principles as the means to oppose surgical abortion under cover of law, I have nevertheless acknowledged that he and the organization he founded, Priests for Life, have done good work in helping to convince badly catechized Catholics that abortion is wrong. Yes, this work is incomplete and founded on the false premises of conciliarism in many instances. Granted. However, I know of instances where pro-abortion Catholics have come to see that they were wrong as a result of the efforts of Priests for Life, and this fact must be acknowledged publicly as a matter of simple justice.

As is the case with everyone who is tainted by the heresy of Americanism and steeped in the errors of conciliarism, "Father" Pavone and Priests for Life do not accept the fact that we have chemical and surgical abortions on demand as a result of the overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King wrought by the Protestant Revolt and the rise of Judeo-Masonry and that these evils are not going to be retarded until and unless men and their nations are converted to the true Faith, Catholicism, and the civil state once again recognizes that true Faith as its official religion.

With this acknowledgment and proviso, therefore, I would like to provide my own readers with a useful collection of quotations from the early centuries of the Church that is found on the Priests for Life website. Many of these quotations appeared in what is now an out of print book called Abortion and the Early Church, I believe, that was published around 1984 if I recall correctly. Others have been translated for posting on the Priests for Life website, and it must be noted that the posting of this series of quotations does a very valuable service for Catholics.

No one who reviews these quotations can have any doubt about the fact that the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mrs. Nancy Pelosi (D-California), is a liar or an ignoramus who seeks to convince others that her support for the mystical dismemberment and destruction of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in the persons of preborn children is "in line" with the "tradition" of the Catholic Church. It is not. Her support for the slicing and dicing of innocent preborn babies in their mothers' wombs is in line with the work of the devil himself, and this must be pointed out to this woman, who is second in the line of succession to the Presidency of the United States of America, as exercises of two of the Spiritual Works of Mercy (to instruct the ignorant, to admonish the sinner).

Here are just some of the quotations from Church documents and the Church Fathers found on the Priests for Life website:

"The way of light, then, is as follows. If anyone desires to travel to the appointed place, he must be zealous in his works. The knowledge, therefore, which is given to us for the purpose of walking in this way, is the following....Thou shalt not slay the child by procuring abortion; nor, again, shalt thou destroy it after it is born" (Letter of Barnabas 19 [A.D. 74] ). The Letter of Barnabas

"Thou shalt not use magic. Thou shalt not use witchcraft; for he says, ‘You shall not suffer a witch to live’ [Ex. 22:18]. Thou shall not slay thy child by causing abortion, nor kill that which is begotten. . . . [I]f it be slain, [it] shall be avenged, as being unjustly destroyed" (Apostolic Constitutions 7:3 [A.D. 400] ). The Apostolic Constitutions

On therapeutic abortion:

And therefore the following question may be very carefully inquired into and discussed by learned men, though I do not know whether it is in man's power to resolve it: At what time the infant begins to live in the womb: whether life exists in a latent form before it manifests itself in the motions of the living being. To deny that the young who are cut out limb by limb from the womb, lest if they were left there dead the mother should die too, have never been alive, seems too audacious. Now, from the time that a man begins to live, from that time it is possible for him to die. And if he die, wheresoever death may overtake him, I cannot discover on what principle he can be denied an interest in the resurrection of the dead. -Enchiridion 23.86

Therefore brothers, you see how perverse they are and hastening wickedness, who are immature, they seek abortion of the conception before the birth; they are those who tell us, "I do not see that which you say must be believed." - Sermon 126, line 12 Augustine of Hippo (354-430)

Why sow where the ground makes it its care to destroy the fruit? where there are many efforts at abortion? where there is murder before the birth? for even the harlot thou dost not let continue a mere harlot, but makest her a murderer also. You see how drunkenness leads to whoredom, whoredom to adultery, adultery to murder; or rather something even worse than murder. For I have no name to give it, since it does not take off the thing born, but prevents its being born. Why then dost thou abuse the gift of God, and fight with His laws, and follow after what is a curse as if a blessing, and make the chamber of procreation a chamber for murder, and arm the woman that was given for childbearing unto slaughter? For with a view to drawing more money by being agreeable and an object of longing to her lovers, even this she is not backward to do, so heaping upon thy head a great pile of fire. For even if the daring deed be hers, yet the causing of it is thine. Hence too come idolatries, since many, with a view to become acceptable, devise incantations, and libations, and love potions, and countless other plans. Yet still after such great unseemliness, after slaughters, after idolatries, the thing [fornication] seems to belong to things indifferent, aye, and to many that have wives, too. -Homily 24 on Romans  John Chrysostom (347-407)

You may see many women widows before wedded, who try to conceal their miserable fall by a lying garb. Unless they are betrayed by swelling wombs or by the crying of their infants, they walk abroad with tripping feet and heads in the air. Some go so far as to take potions, that they may insure barrenness, and thus murder human beings almost before their conception. Some, when they find themselves with child through their sin, use drugs to procure abortion, and when (as often happens) they die with their offspring, they enter the lower world laden with the guilt not only of adultery against Christ but also of suicide and child murder. - Epistula 22 Jerome (347-420)

Indeed there are those women who cut off the word prematurely born/aborted, before they give birth, there are those who have Christ in the womb but they will not yet have formed (him), to whom it is said: my children, whom I desire to bring forth again and again until Christ be formed in you. Expositio evangelii secundum Lucam, lib. 10, line 252 [private translation]


Just an interjection at this point: One can see in this previous quote, which comes from Saint Ambrose, the Bishop of Milan, the same language that many, including yours truly, have used for decades now to describe abortion as attack mystically upon Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in the persons of preborn child.

I digress. Back to the sources quoted on the Priests for Life website:


But why the eye or the hand, since the aborted child has both a hand and an eye which has already been formed? -Ambrose, Expositio evangelii secundum Lucam, lib. 10, line 283 [private translation]

And elsewhere the same Ecclesiastes, being an old man, guarded him better whom his mother had cast out by abortion, because he did not see these bad things which they make in this world, he neither came into these shadows nor walked in vanity, and for that reason he who did not come into this life will have more of a rest than he who came. - De bono mortis, cap 2, par. 4, line 11

The poor get rid of their small children by exposure and denying them when they are discovered. But the rich also, so that their wealth will not be more divided, deny their children [when they are] in the womb and with all the force of parricide, they kill the beings of their wombs [while they are] in the same fruitful womb. In this way life is taken away from them before it has been given. -Hexameron V.18.58 [private translation] Ambrose (c.340-397)

To Anfilochius, Bishop of Iconia:

She who has intentionally destroyed [the fetus] is subject to the penalty corresponding to a homicide. For us, there is no scrutinizing between the formed and unformed [fetus]; here truly justice is made not only for the unborn but also with reference to the person who is attentive only to himself/herself since so many women generally die for this very reason. -First Letter 2

Canon II.

Let her that procures abortion undergo ten years' penance, whether the embryo were perfectly formed, or not. - The First Canonical Epistle of Our Holy Father Basil, Archbishop of Caesarea in Cappadocia to Amphilochius, Bishop of Iconium.

…those who give the abortifacients and those who take the poisons are guilty of homicide. -First Letter 8 Basil (c.329-379)

That the unborn child is alive:

How are they dead unless they were first alive? But still in the womb an infant by necessary cruelty is killed when lying twisted at the womb's mouth he prevents birth and is a matricide unless he dies. Therefore there is among the arms of physicians an instrument by which with a rotary movement the genital parts are first opened, then with a cervical instrument the interior members are slaughtered with careful judgment by a blunt barb, so that the whole criminal deed is extracted with a violent delivery. There is also the bronze needle by which the throat - cutting is carried out by a robbery in the dark; this instrument is called and embryo knife from its function of infanticide, as it is deadly for the living infant.

This Hippocrates taught, and Asclepiades, and Erasistratus and Herophilus, the dissector of adults, and the milder Soranos himself, - all of them certain that a living being had been conceived and so deploring the most unhappy infancy of one of this kind who had first to be killed lest a live woman be rent apart. Of this necessity of crime, Hicesius, I believe did not doubt, as he added souls to those being born from blows of cold air, because the word itself for "soul" among the Greek relates to such a cooling. - De Anima 25.5 - 6

They [John and Jesus] were both alive while still in the womb. Elizabeth rejoiced as the infant leaped in her womb; Mary glorifies the Lord because Christ within inspired her. Each mother recognizes her child and each is known by her child who is alive, being not merely souls but also spirits. Tertullian (c.160-240)  - De Anima 26.4

Council of Elvira (c. 305)

Canon 68: If a catechumen should conceive by an adulterer, and should procure the death of the child, she can be baptized only at the end of her life.

Council of Ancyra (314)

Canon 21: Women who prostitute themselves, and who kill the child thus begotten, or who try to destroy them when in their wombs, are by ancient law excommunicated to the end of their lives. We, however, have softened their punishment and condemned them to the various appointed degrees of penance for ten years. Quotes from Early Councils 

The Lord's Teaching to the Heathen by the Twelve Apostles:

1 There are two ways, one of life and one of death; and between the two ways there is a great difference.

2 Now, this is the way of life:…

The second commandment of the Teaching: "Do not murder; do not commit adultery"; do not corrupt boys; do not fornicate; "do not steal"; do not practice magic; do not go in for sorcery; do not murder a child by abortion or kill a newborn infant. "Do not covet your neighbor's property; do not commit perjury; do not bear false witness"; do not slander; do not bear grudges. Do not be double-minded or double-tongued, for a double tongue is "a deadly snare." Your words shall not be dishonest or hollow, but substantiated by action. Do not be greedy or extortionate or hypocritical or malicious or arrogant. Do not plot against your neighbor. Do not hate anybody; but reprove some, pray for others, and still others love more than your own life. Didache: The Teaching of the Twelve Apostles


The Priests for Life website also includes several citations from pagan authors who condemned abortion. Both of these quotations were found in that book called Abortion in the Early Church:

Of what avail to fair woman to rest free from the burdens of war [i.e. pregnancy], nor choose with shield in arm to march in the fierce array, if, free from peril of battle, she suffer wounds from weapons of her own, and arm her unforeseeing hands to her own undoing?

She who first plucked forth the tender life deserved to die in the warfare she began. Can it be that, to spare your bosom the reproach of lines, you would scatter the tragic sands of deadly combat? -De Nuce, lines 22-23; cf. Amores 2.13 (Ovid, 43 B.C.-65 A.D.)

Juvenal (c.57/67-127)

Poor women…endure the perils of childbirth, and all the troubles of nursing to which their lot condemns them; but how often does a gilded bed contain a woman that is lying in it? So great is the skill, so powerful the drugs, of the abortionist, paid to murder mankind within the womb. Pagan Sources


It is also important to point out to Mrs. Pelosi, who has been enabled for decades by the likes of John Quinn and William Levada (gee, where he is these days?) and George Niederauer (gee, who appointed him?), the three most recent conciliar "archbishops" of San Francisco, California (Fray Junipero Serra, pray for us!), that there was a chap named Hippocrates who inserted the following two provisions into the oath that he administered to physicians, an oath to which physicians swore in its original text until the American Murderers Association, that is, the American Medical Association, changed it in 1972:

I will apply dietetic measures for the benefit of the sick according to my ability and judgment; I will keep them from harm and injustice.

I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody who asked for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect. Similarly I will not give to a woman an abortive remedy. In purity and holiness I will guard my life and my art.


As advances were being made by Margaret Sanger, the founder of the Birth Control League (now known as the International Federations of Planned Parenthood) and her eugenicist friends in the Weimar Republic and its successor, the Third Reich of Adolf Hitler, to promote contraception, which is in se a violation of the Sovereignty of God over the sanctity and fecundity of marital relations, efforts that were being rotten fruit in the heretical and schismatic Anglican "Church," Pope Pius XI used Casti Connubii, December 31, 1930, to condemn contraception and abortion:

And now, Venerable Brethren, we shall explain in detail the evils opposed to each of the benefits of matrimony. First consideration is due to the offspring, which many have the boldness to call the disagreeable burden of matrimony and which they say is to be carefully avoided by married people not through virtuous continence (which Christian law permits in matrimony when both parties consent) but by frustrating the marriage act. Some justify this criminal abuse on the ground that they are weary of children and wish to gratify their desires without their consequent burden. Others say that they cannot on the one hand remain continent nor on the other can they have children because of the difficulties whether on the part of the mother or on the part of family circumstances .

But no reason, however grave, may be put forward by which anything intrinsically against nature may become conformable to nature and morally good. Since, therefore, the conjugal act is destined primarily by nature for the begetting of children, those who in exercising it deliberately frustrate its natural power and purpose sin against nature and commit a deed which is shameful and intrinsically vicious.

Small wonder, therefore, if Holy Writ bears witness that the Divine Majesty regards with greatest detestation this horrible crime and at times has punished it with death. As St. Augustine notes, "Intercourse even with one's legitimate wife is unlawful and wicked where the conception of the offspring is prevented. Onan, the son of Juda, did this and the Lord killed him for it."

Since, therefore, openly departing from the uninterrupted Christian tradition some recently have judged it possible solemnly to declare another doctrine regarding this question, the Catholic Church, to whom God has entrusted the defense of the integrity and purity of morals, standing erect in the midst of the moral ruin which surrounds her, in order that she may preserve the chastity of the nuptial union from being defiled by this foul stain, raises her voice in token of her divine ambassadorship and through Our mouth proclaims anew: any use whatsoever of matrimony exercised in such a way that the act is deliberately frustrated in its natural power to generate life is an offense against the law of God and of nature, and those who indulge in such are branded with the guilt of a grave sin.

But another very grave crime is to be noted, Venerable Brethren, which regards the taking of the life of the offspring hidden in the mother's womb. Some wish it to be allowed and left to the will of the father or the mother; others say it is unlawful unless there are weighty reasons which they call by the name of medical, social, or eugenic "indication." Because this matter falls under the penal laws of the state by which the destruction of the offspring begotten but unborn is forbidden, these people demand that the "indication," which in one form or another they defend, be recognized as such by the public law and in no way penalized. There are those, moreover, who ask that the public authorities provide aid for these death-dealing operations, a thing, which, sad to say, everyone knows is of very frequent occurrence in some places.

As to the "medical and therapeutic indication" to which, using their own words, we have made reference, Venerable Brethren, however much we may pity the mother whose health and even life is gravely imperiled in the performance of the duty allotted to her by nature, nevertheless what could ever be a sufficient reason for excusing in any way the direct murder of the innocent? This is precisely what we are dealing with here. Whether inflicted upon the mother or upon the child, it is against the precept of God and the law of nature: "Thou shalt not kill:" The life of each is equally sacred, and no one has the power, not even the public authority, to destroy it. It is of no use to appeal to the right of taking away life for here it is a question of the innocent, whereas that right has regard only to the guilty; nor is there here question of defense by bloodshed against an unjust aggressor (for who would call an innocent child an unjust aggressor?); again there is not question here of what is called the "law of extreme necessity" which could even extend to the direct killing of the innocent. Upright and skillful doctors strive most praiseworthily to guard and preserve the lives of both mother and child; on the contrary, those show themselves most unworthy of the noble medical profession who encompass the death of one or the other, through a pretense at practicing medicine or through motives of misguided pity.

All of which agrees with the stern words of the Bishop of Hippo in denouncing those wicked parents who seek to remain childless, and failing in this, are not ashamed to put their offspring to death: "Sometimes this lustful cruelty or cruel lust goes so far as to seek to procure a baneful sterility, and if this fails the fetus conceived in the womb is in one way or another smothered or evacuated, in the desire to destroy the offspring before it has life, or if it already lives in the womb, to kill it before it is born. If both man and woman are party to such practices they are not spouses at all; and if from the first they have carried on thus they have come together not for honest wedlock, but for impure gratification; if both are not party to these deeds, I make bold to say that either the one makes herself a mistress of the husband, or the other simply the paramour of his wife."

What is asserted in favor of the social and eugenic "indication" may and must be accepted, provided lawful and upright methods are employed within the proper limits; but to wish to put forward reasons based upon them for the killing of the innocent is unthinkable and contrary to the divine precept promulgated in the words of the Apostle: Evil is not to be done that good may come of it.

Those who hold the reins of government should not forget that it is the duty of public authority by appropriate laws and sanctions to defend the lives of the innocent, and this all the more so since those whose lives are endangered and assailed cannot defend themselves. Among whom we must mention in the first place infants hidden in the mother's womb. And if the public magistrates not only do not defend them, but by their laws and ordinances betray them to death at the hands of doctors or of others, let them remember that God is the Judge and Avenger of innocent blood which cried from earth to Heaven.


Yes, there is no place for the likes of Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., or Nancy Pelosi or any other of their like-minded Catholic brethren in the two organized crime families of naturalism in the United States of America, the Democrat and the the Republican parties, to hide. The words written by Pope Pius XI in Casti Connubii nearly seventy-eight years ago ring out very loudly at the present time to warn them of the fate that awaits them at the moment of their Particular Judgments if they do not abjure their support for chemical and surgical child killing and work to undo the harm that they have caused by said support for this crime that cries out to Heaven for vengeance:

And if the public magistrates not only do not defend them, but by their laws and ordinances betray them to death at the hands of doctors or of others, let them remember that God is the Judge and Avenger of innocent blood which cried from earth to Heaven.


Nancy Pelosi has been so bold as to tell Tom Brokaw, the host of the National Broadcasting Company's Meet the Press program, the following on Sunday, August 24, 2008:

Pelosi: “I would say that as an ardent practicing Catholic this is an issue that I have studied for a long time, and what I know is over the centuries the doctors of the Church have not been able to make that definition. And St. Augustine said three months. We don’t know. The point is it that it shouldn’t have an impact on a woman’s right to chose.”


Saint Augustine did not have access to biological science. He did know, however, that abortion was a crime against God and man. The quotations above demonstrate this, as did Pope Pius XI in Casti Connubii:


All of which agrees with the stern words of the Bishop of Hippo in denouncing those wicked parents who seek to remain childless, and failing in this, are not ashamed to put their offspring to death: "Sometimes this lustful cruelty or cruel lust goes so far as to seek to procure a baneful sterility, and if this fails the fetus conceived in the womb is in one way or another smothered or evacuated, in the desire to destroy the offspring before it has life, or if it already lives in the womb, to kill it before it is born. If both man and woman are party to such practices they are not spouses at all; and if from the first they have carried on thus they have come together not for honest wedlock, but for impure gratification; if both are not party to these deeds, I make bold to say that either the one makes herself a mistress of the husband, or the other simply the paramour of his wife."


Wouldn't you say that Nancy Pelosi is being rather selective about her quotation of the great Saint of Hippo, who turned away from his sins as a result of the twenty years of prayers said and tears shed by his dear mother, Saint Monica, and was baptized by an ardent foe of abortion, Saint Ambrose, to make him a "witness" in her sordid, perverse behalf? Saint Augustine, although unsure as to when life began, was opposed to abortion, and Nancy Pelosi is, once again, an ignoramus or an calculated liar to use his uncertainty about the beginning of life to make him a "witness" for what the bishop who baptized him called an attack upon Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in the womb.

Oh, yes, Charles Chaput, the conciliar "archbishop" of Denver, Edward Egan, the conciliar "archbishop" of New York, and Donald Wuerl, the conciliar "archbishop" of Washington, District of Columbia, have sought to correct Pelosi's misrepresentation of Church history and Church teaching. Each, however, is an ardent Americanist who accepts the very false, naturalistic, anti-Incarnational, religiously indifferenist and semi-Pelagian principles that are at the foundation of the modern civil state, including the United States of America. Each recognizes and is duly submissive to Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, who has shown his own temerity to try to make Saint Augustine of Hippo a witness in behalf of conciliarism's apostasy of religious liberty and the separation of Church and State.

Once again, let us turn to a true pope, Pius VII, to dispel this particular misrepresentation of Saint Augustine:

But a much more grave, and indeed very bitter, sorrow increased in Our heart - a sorrow by which We confess that We were crushed, overwhelmed and torn in two - from the twenty-second article of the constitution in which We saw, not only that "liberty of religion and of conscience" (to use the same words found in the article) were permitted by the force of the constitution, but also that assistance and patronage were promised both to this liberty and also to the ministers of these different forms of "religion". There is certainly no need of many words, in addressing you, to make you fully recognize by how lethal a wound the Catholic religion in France is struck by this article. For when the liberty of all "religions" is indiscriminately asserted, by this very fact truth is confounded with error and the holy and immaculate Spouse of Christ, the Church, outside of which there can be no salvation, is set on a par with the sects of heretics and with Judaic perfidy itself. For when favour and patronage is promised even to the sects of heretics and their ministers, not only their persons, but also their very errors, are tolerated and fostered: a system of errors in which is contained that fatal and never sufficiently to be deplored HERESY which, as St. Augustine says (de Haeresibus, no.72), "asserts that all heretics proceed correctly and tell the truth: which is so absurd that it seems incredible to me." (Pope Pius VII, Post Tam Diuturnas, April 29, 1814.)


Pope Gregory XVI noted in Mirari Vos, August 15, 1832, that Saint Augustine was adamantly oppose to the licentiousness that masquerades under the slogan of "civil liberty," one of the many "gifts" of the pluralism of Americanism to the "Second" Vatican Council and to the world-at-large:

This shameful font of indifferentism gives rise to that absurd and erroneous proposition which claims that liberty of conscience must be maintained for everyone. It spreads ruin in sacred and civil affairs, though some repeat over and over again with the greatest impudence that some advantage accrues to religion from it. "But the death of the soul is worse than freedom of error," as Augustine was wont to say. When all restraints are removed by which men are kept on the narrow path of truth, their nature, which is already inclined to evil, propels them to ruin. Then truly "the bottomless pit" is open from which John saw smoke ascending which obscured the sun, and out of which locusts flew forth to devastate the earth. Thence comes transformation of minds, corruption of youths, contempt of sacred things and holy laws -- in other words, a pestilence more deadly to the state than any other. Experience shows, even from earliest times, that cities renowned for wealth, dominion, and glory perished as a result of this single evil, namely immoderate freedom of opinion, license of free speech, and desire for novelty.


Those steeped in Americanism and its offshoots, including conciliarism, had better reckon with the fact that Saint Augustine did not believe that error should be given "freedom" in civil society. "But the death of the soul is worse than freedom of error." Was Saint Augustine correct?

The daily slaughter of the preborn by means of chemical abortifacients and surgical abortions is the result of the overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King and of the counterfeit church of conciliarism's "reconciliation" with the modern civil state that has arisen as a result of that overthrow. It is the proliferation of error in civil society, however, that has led many a soul to eternal death as social chaos has been unleashed within nations and wars have raged among nations. Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. and Nancy Pelosi and all of their like-minded Catholic brethren in the Republican and Democrat parties are simply the logical "issue," if you will, of Modernity in the world and Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism in which they are so much at home and are, despite the "tsks, tsks" and "naughty, naughties" issued by a few conciliar "bishops," very much in "good standing."

Catholics need not be in doubt as to when life begins. Biology teaches us this. The pro-aborts know the facts of biology. They know that one does not have kill something that is dead. Preborn babies are alive and growing, which is why those who do not want the "bother" of their births must seek to kill them by various means, each of which is equally morally heinous. Only one who seeks to confuse fact with fiction would contend that such a fact of biology is above his "pay grade," as the Communist-trained Barack Hussein Obama contended recently.

Catholics also need not be in doubt as to when the soul enters the body. We have really known this all along, have we not?

In prinicipio erat Verbum, et Verbum erat apud Deum, et Deus erat Verbum. Hoc erat in principio apud Deum. Omnia per ipsum facta sunt, et sine ipso factum est nihil quod factum est. In ipso vita erat, et vita erat lux hominum: et lux in tenebris lucet, et tenebrae eam non comprehenderunt. Fuit homo missus a Deo, cui nomen erat Joannes. Hic venit in testimonium, ut testimonium perhiberet de lumine, ut omnes crederent per illum. Non erat ille lux, sed ut testimonium perhiberet de lumine. Erat lux vera quae illuminat omnem hominem venientem in hunc mundum. In mundo erat, et mundus per ipsum factus est, et mundus eum non cognovit. In propria venit, et sui eum non receperunt. Quotquot autem receperunt eum, dedit eis potestatem filios Dei fieri, his qui credunt in nomine ejus. Qui non ex sanguinibus, neque ex voluntate carnis, neque ex voluntate viri, sed ex Deo nati sunt. ET VERBUM CARO FACTUM EST, et habitavit in nobis et vidimus gloriam ejus, gloriam quasi unigeniti a Patre, plenum gratiae et veritatis.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was made nothing that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men: and the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness to give testimony of the light, that all men might believe through him. He was not the light, but was to give testimony of the light. That was the true light which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world. He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him, to them He gave great power to become the sons of God: to them that believe in His name: who are born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1: 1-14.)


The Second Person of the Blessed Trinity was made Man in the Virginal and Immaculate Womb of Our Lady, she who was conceived without stain of Original and Actual Sin at the moment of her Immaculate Conception, by the power of the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost. The hypostatic union of the two natures in the one Person, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, took place at the moment of his Incarnation. Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ had His soul with those two natures from the first moment of His conception as He sanctified the womb of every mother while He was in the all-holy and ever-virginal womb of His Most Blessed Mother. Our Lord is in solidarity with every child in every mother's womb, no matter the condition of the conception or the condition of the child conceived, whether "normal" or suffering from some "abnormality." To attack an innocent child in the womb is to attack Our Lord Himself mystically, and this is a fact that Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., and Nancy Pelosi and their ilk must be confronted with over and over again.

Our Lord instructed Saul of Tarsus, who had just presided over the stoning of the first Catholic martyr, Saint Stephen, that an attack upon one of His least members is an attack upon Him:

And Saul, as yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest, And asked of him letters to Damascus, to the synagogues: that if he found any men and women of this way, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. And as he went on his journey, it came to pass that he drew nigh to Damascus; and suddenly a light from heaven shined round about him. And falling on the ground, he heard a voice saying to him: Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? Who said: Who art thou, Lord? And he: I am Jesus whom thou persecutest. It is hard for thee to kick against the goad. (Acts 9: 1-5.)


Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., and Nancy Pelosi are persecuting Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ mystically in the persons of preborn human babies. And those in the counterfeit church of conciliarism who enable them in this regard must also reckon with the words written by Pope Pius XI in Casti Connubii that were quoted earlier:

And if the public magistrates not only do not defend them, but by their laws and ordinances betray them to death at the hands of doctors or of others, let them remember that God is the Judge and Avenger of innocent blood which cried from earth to Heaven.


The hour is late. Nations, including our own, stand to be annihilated by the wrath of God if we do not heed Our Lady's Fatima Message and make reparation for our sins. In the midst of apostasy and betrayal on every side imaginable, we must enfold ourselves in the mantle of Our Lady's Brown Scapular of Mount Carmel as our shield and use her Most Holy Rosary as our weapon to pray in reparation for our sins and those of the whole world, offering our prayers and sufferings and sacrifices to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

May that Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary come soon. Very soon!

Isn't it time to pray a Rosary now?

Vivat Christus Rex!

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