Pope Saint Pius V And The Conversion Of The Muslims
by Thomas A. Droleskey
The culture of the United States of America is so rife with "political correctness" that it is considered "offensive" to speak the truth frankly if doing so will offend a particular minority group whose members take umbrage at having their fellows suspected of any wrongdoing.
This "political correctness" was noted as early as June 8, 1978, by Dr. Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn at Harvard University:
Without any censorship, in the West fashionable trends of thought and ideas are carefully separated from those which are not fashionable; nothing is forbidden, but what is not fashionable will hardly ever find its way into periodicals or books or be heard in colleges. Legally your researchers are free, but they are conditioned by the fashion of the day. There is no open violence such as in the East; however, a selection dictated by fashion and the need to match mass standards frequently prevent independent-minded people from giving their contribution to public life. There is a dangerous tendency to form a herd, shutting off successful development. I have received letters in America from highly intelligent persons, maybe a teacher in a faraway small college who could do much for the renewal and salvation of his country, but his country cannot hear him because the media are not interested in him. This gives birth to strong mass prejudices, blindness, which is most dangerous in our dynamic era. There is, for instance, a self-deluding interpretation of the contemporary world situation. It works as a sort of petrified armor around people's minds. Human voices from 17 countries of Eastern Europe and Eastern Asia cannot pierce it. It will only be broken by the pitiless crowbar of event. (A World Split Apart)
As one who has suffered from political correctness in my academic career, which is why I am unemployable in my own field of teaching political science despite excellent letters of reference from professional peers and years of top-ranked evaluations by students, I know only too well of how "fashionable trends of thought and ideas are carefully separated from those which are not fashionable." There is even a form of self-censorship in ostensibly "mainstream" circles of traditional Catholicism wherein many, although not all, of the voices that used to be raised in opposition to apostasy and sacrilege and blasphemy have been pretty much muted as a result of Summorum Pontificum, July 7, 2007 (see
Peep), and the "lifting" of the "excommunications" of the four bishops of the Society of Saint Pius X who were consecrated by the late Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre on June 30, 1988. Violation of the First Commandment? What violation of the First Commandment?
There have been instances in recent years in which men steeped in lives of unrepentant perversity have attacked "straight" men and beaten them violently without the fact of their perversity being reported in the "mainstream" media.
There have also been numerous instances in which "mainstream" media accounts of various violent attacks in the United States of America and around the world fail to make mention of black upon white violence or instances when such black upon white or Asian violence has been justified.
To wit, the violence and the killing that took place during the riots that followed the acquittal on April 29, 1992, of four City of Los Angeles, California, police officers who were accused of using excessive force to subdue and arrest drunken "motorist" Rodney King were justified by some in the "mainstream" media as an example of "black rage." Fifty-three innocent human beings were killed those riots. No one has been arrested or prosecuted for any of those killings. Not one. And the men who were arrested for the beating of truck driver Reginald Denny were, in effect, acquitted of the more serious charges against them by a hung jury as "payback" for the verdict in the criminal trial of the Los Angeles police officers in the Rodney King beating.
Too many to count have been the instances of the "mainstream" media refusing to identify Mohammedan thugs by mentioning their allegiance to their false prophet, Mohammed. The collection of weirdo naturalists of the "leftist" bent who populate the nooks and crannies of the administration of Caesar Barackus Obamus Ignoramus are quintessential practitioners of political correctness and of factual revision, being bold enough to do so right before our very eyes.
The Obama administration refused at first to term
Major Nidal Malik Hasan, M.D., U.S.A., who shot forty-three people and killed thirteen of these people at Fort Hood, Texas, on Thursday, November 5, 2009, as a Mohammedan terrorist (see
Killing In The Name of The Religion of Peace). It was only much later that the officials of the current presidential administration used the word "terrorism" to refer to Nidal's killing spree even though he was in contact with an American born jihadist,
Anwar al-Awlaki, who is now based in Yemen who has urged his followers to kill Americans. Officials of the United States Army and in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) knew of this connection in advance of the Nidal Malik Hasan's shootings and did nothing as they did not consider him a threat. (See U.S. Knew of Fort Hood Suspect’s Tie to Radical Cleric )
The administration of Caesar Barackus Obamus Ignoramus has even gone so far to ban the words "Islamic terrorism" from being used by officials of the Federal government of the United States of America (see Awash In A Flood of Errors and Lies).
It should come as no surprise, therefore, that Michael Bloomberg, the pro-abortion, self-professed "billionaire playboy" who supports every manner of moral evil imaginable under cover of the civil law while serving as a glorified "nanny" of the bodily health of the City of New York (forcing restaurants to eliminate the use of saturated fats, imposing smoking bans of various sorts, seeking now to force restaurants to cut their use of salt in their entrees), sought to pin blame for the failed bombing in Times Square on someone who was "mentally deranged," someone who was probably angered by ObamaCare:
CBS Evening News Anchor Katie Couric asked New York's Mayor Mike Bloomberg if the bombing attempt could be a precursor to a bigger attack.
"There is no credible evidence so far that this attack was more than at least one person, the driver," said Mayor Mike Bloomberg. "After that there is no evidence that anyone else was involved. It may be, but we can't say that it is."
"There is some speculation that the materials in the Nissan Pathfinder were similar to ones that were found to some failed attacks in the U.K.," Couric asked.
"There's a limited number of things you would need," Bloomberg said. "You'd need a timer, you'd need a battery as an energy source you'd need some explosive and you'd need something to enhance it. That's going to be true no matter where or when the...another attack took place. So, anything would have enough commonalities for the conspiracy theorists to blow it up if you don't mind the pun and make something out of it."
"Are you concerned about the impact this might have on tourism?" Couric asked.
"I think people today understand we live in a dangerous world," Bloomberg said. "And you can't let the terrorists win by locking yourself in a room. What I can guarantee you is we're doing everything that we can. Whether or not we will have somebody in exactly the right place at exactly the right time to prevent something down the future nobody can do that - nobody can guarantee you."
"But there is no evidence here of a conspiracy. There is no evidence that it's tied in to anything else. It looks like an amatuerish job, done by at least one person," Bloomberg added.
But if another attack were to occur, Mayor Bloomberg and the heads of all emergency response agencies would be in the city's situation room. It's powered by its own generator and allows the team to monitor video feeds, television coverage - even the corner of 45th and Seventh Avenue, where a crisis was averted.
Law enforcement officials don't know who left the Nissan Pathfinder behind, but at this point the Mayor believes the suspect acted alone.
"If I had to guess, twenty five cents, this would be exactly that," Bloomberg said. "Homegrown maybe a mentally deranged person or someone with a political agenda that doesn't like the health care bill or something. It could be anything." (Bloomberg: "No Evidence" Anyone Else Involved - CBS Evening.)
Michael Bloomberg was once sued by a female employee of his Bloomberg financial and media conglomerate for harassment when he responded as follows upon learning she was expecting a child, "Kill it! Kill it!" (See New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg Testifies in Pregnancy Discrimination Case .) This episode was even too much for the pro-abort protege of Ralph Nader, Mark Green, who brought it up in a campaign advertisement when running as the Democrat Party nominee for Mayor of the City of New York, New York, in 2001 against Bloomberg, who had the endorsement of Republican Party even though he had been a lifelong Democrat until earlier that year and declared himself in 2008 to be an "independent." One of the first things that Michael Bloomberg attempted to do as Mayor of the City of New York in 2002 was to impose mandatory training in methods of surgical baby-killing in all of the obstetrics/genealogical residency programs in all of the city's public hospitals, permitting no one to opt out of the program as a matter of conscience (see Kathryn Jean Lopez on Med Students and Abortion).
Michael Bloomberg is a reprobate, eager to blame those in disparages in the "religious right" for the nation's problems, including, a la United States Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, the belief that there is a growing danger of "homegrown," "domestic" terrorism from those who criticize "the government." (See
All Hail! Caesar Obamus.) He is a spineless, gutless coward who speaks out exclusively in behalf of abject moral evils and in favor of a radical form of social engineering designed to curb legitimate human freedoms as he spends almost as much of his free time in his mansion on the island of Bermuda as the late United States Representative Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., spent in The Bahamas after he was found guilty in a civil trial of slandering a woman named Esther James, whom he called "bag woman for the police" (see Little Caesars All (Pizza, Pizza)).
The truth is, of course, that the would-be Times Square bomber, Faisal Shahzad, a naturalized citizen of the United States of America who was born in Pakistan, which has become a key base of operations for the Taliban, is indeed a Mohammedan and was intent on carrying out, as appears certain at this time, of the Pakistani-based Taliban. So much for the Obama administration's decision to avoid the use of the words "Islamic terrorism," huh?
Although it appears that Faisal Shahzad's attempting bombing of Times Square in the Borough of Manhattan of the City of New York, New York, was in the planning for a long time, as amateurish as it turned out to be, is it any accident that he parked his recently purchased Nissan Pathfinder near the headquarters of Viacom, the company that owns the Comedy Central cable network on which is shown the hideous, blasphemous South Park cartoon series that has blasphemed the Mother of God and has also mocked the false "prophet," Mohammedan of the false god, Allah?
If the placement of that Nissan Pathfinder--with all of its amateurish devices that were supposed to create a deadly fireball--was indeed a signal of Mohammedan outrage against the South Park program's mockery of the mass murderer and polygamist named Mohammed, as appears a possibility, this shows us once again that Mohammedans are more eager to avenge insults to the false "prophet" and to their false god than Catholics are even to speak out against the blasphemies against the honor and glory and majesty of God committed by the false "pontiff," Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI. It is not wonder at all that among the many other instruments that God is using to scourge us right now for our sins that He continues to use the Mohammedans to bring us to our knees and to remind us how those who worship the devil under the guise of worshiping Him have more sense of the sacred than do most Catholics who are either steeped in the false ecumenism of conciliarism or have voluntarily surrendered their sense of outrage to have a "place" in the One World Ecumenical meeting tent that is the counterfeit church of conciliarism.
Mind you, I am not arguing that Catholics should commit acts of violence against the major television networks or to seek to overthrow a government that promotes things that are injurious to the honor and glory of the Most Blessed Trinity and thus to the temporal and eternal good of souls. Not at all. I am arguing that the prevailing, inter-related religiously indifferentist and/or Masonically "tolerant" approach to a "diversity of beliefs" that characterizes our societal culture and permeates throughout the structures of conciliarism has produced Catholics who are so bereft of the sensus Catholics that a large preponderance of them are as predisposed to the tender, naturalistic, emotion-laded "sensibilities" of political correctness as the rest of the population. Some of these Catholics get more upset about offenses to false religions than they do to their own! This is a fact. I am not making this up. This phenomenon of "political correctness" thus blinds Catholics to the dangers posed by the errors of Modernity and Modernism as the leaders of the world and those of the counterfeit church of conciliarism take careful measures to offend no one other than God Himself.
Very few people want to face the simple truth that Mohammedanism is evil in se. Its mosques are not "sacred," as Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, has contended very publicly. Its Koran, which Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI has called "that precious book," is blasphemous and heretical. Its adherents have been taught that Mohammedanism is the "true" religion and that it is their mission to convert the world, and convert it at the point of the sword and with as much bloodshed as possible they have tried to do since the dawn of the Seventh Century, Anno Domini. Mosques in the United States of America and elsewhere in the Western world are centers of one terrorist conspiracy after another.
Indeed, the Mohammedan mosque for Fairfield County, Connecticut, at which Faisal Shahzad most likely worshiped, is located in the woods off of Pepper Street in Monroe, Connecticut, right in back of Our Lady of the Rosary Chapel. Imagine what harm would be emanating from that place of false worship and blasphemy if Bishop Robert Fidelis McKenna, O.P., did not pray Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary in the Methodist Cemetery that adjoins the chapel, making sure to say a few exorcism prayers in the direction of that mosque. Bishop McKenna is probably holding back torrents of violence by the Rosaries he prays and the exorcism prayers he says near that den of evil.
Some assert that Mohammedans would not be attacking the United States of America if its officials were not such reflexive supporters of the State of Israel and so blind the bloodthirsty offenses committed by the Israeli government and its Israeli Defense Force against innocent Palestinians, both Christians and Mohammedans, and against the Lebanese and whoever else happens to get in way of the Zionist juggernaut. There is truth to this assertion, at least to a certain extent. It is also true, however, that Mohammedans, who are within a generation or two of becoming the majority of the populations of many of the countries of once proudly Catholic Europe, desire now what Mohammedans have always desired and sought frequently at the point of the sword ever since that fraud and blasphemer Mohammed invented his false religion at the beginning of the Seventh Century Anno Domini: conquest.
That Mohammedans are on the verge of conquering Europe by means of procreation and are desirous of neutralizing opposition to their plans in the United States of America, having at their disposal right now a man, Barack Hussein Obama, who, at the very least, was trained for a while in Mohammedan school in Indonesia and is the biological son and the stepson of two different Mohammedan men, the former from Kenya and the latter from Indonesia, and who has been intent on proving his bona fides to disciples of Mohammed by bowing to their leaders (yes, he also bowed to President of Red China recently) and by giving a speech "apologizing" for past American policies that he says have inflamed passions (see
Kindred Spirits of the New World Order). Obama has, however, continued, without calling it as such, the "global war on terror" in Iraq and Afghanistan, which has resulted in removing one set of Mohammedan thugs for other sets of Mohammedan thugs who are equally corrupt, being bribed with oodles of American taxpayer dollars, and intent on power as an ultimate end to enrich and aggrandize themselves (see
Who Says Saddam Hussein Is Dead?).
There was a great deal of enthusiasm in some Catholic "conservative" circles for the Mohammedan Mujahideen fighters who were resisting the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan back in the 1980s. One Mujahideen speaker who was associated with the Free Congress spoke at the Washington Catholic Rendezvous at which I also spoke in Washington, D.C., in February of 1987. The man gave a compelling account of how his country was suffering under the Soviet occupation. I was, however, a little disturbed by the uncurbed enthusiasm that many expressed after the man's talk, saying to a few people thereafter, "I don't know about this. The Mohammedans hate us just as much as they hate the Communists. They might turn around one day and target us after they're done with the Soviets." Not a few of the members of the Afghan Mujahideen fighters became members of the Taliban, proving once again that the devil has used the various forms of naturalism, including Communism itself, to inspire such understandable and deserved fear into the hearts of believing Catholics in order to convince them to take leave of their Catholic senses and to trust in some naturalistic means to retard other forms of naturalism. Such is nothing other than a trap from the devil himself
Pope Saint Pius V, whose feast we have been celebrating this day, Wednesday, May 5, 2010, knew how to deal with the Mohammedans: Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary, the same weapon that is used by that faithful son of Saint Dominic, Bishop Robert McKenna, as he prays his Rosary every day at 3:00 p.m. in the Methodist Cemetery in Monroe, Connecticut. He wanted to effect their conversion. He also knew that there were times when they had to be defeated in battle, not in order to raise up "nice" Mohammedans" who can be bribed with tribute into being "peace loving" (which is how the late Shah of Iran, Reza Mohammed Pahlavi, kept the support of the mullahs for so long) to replace the so-called "extreme" Muslims who "defame" a mythical "religion of peace."
Pope Saint Pius V, a member of the Order of Preachers, knew that there was no compromise with those in the false religion of Mohammedanism. War would not be made upon them needlessly. When it was necessary at times to defend Christendom against the attacks of Mohammedan hordes, Pope Saint Pius V knew that there was no substitute for victory in battle as there cannot be a just war without a goal of achieving a victory to repair the wound to justice that had precipitated considerations of the use of military force. Catholics have an "end game" when dealing with the devil in all of his deceits, whether they relate to his temptations to entice us to sin in our personal lives or when he uses false religions and false "philosophies" as a means of conquering Catholics in the field of military battle: victory. And what is the principal means after Holy Mass to achieve victory over the devil and his deceits? Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary, which Pope Saint Pius V implored the Catholic world to pray before and during the epic battle of Lepanto on October 7, 1571.
Mohammedans are just some among the many forces on the face of this earth at present who want us to renounce the Faith. It is no accident that many Freemasonic lodges have Arab names and use symbols in their diabolical rituals that are very similar to those that have special meaning for Mohammedans. Ultimately, however, we have nothing to fear from them. Our Lady will convert or vanquish them all. There is no need to listen to the mindless blatherers on talk radio or to watch them blather away on television. I wrote this eleven years ago this month in a article in The Wanderer ("Mindless Blathering"), and I will continue to write this as we make far, far better use of our time by praying Rosaries than we do trying to "figure" out pieces of the current naturalistic puzzle as it is only by understanding First and Last Things as taught by the Catholic Church that we can come to realize that we are in the midst of physical and moral cataclysms that may indeed presage that may signal the arrival of Antichrist, if he is not already walking amongst us. One of the ironies in this is that Mohammedanism itself will be obliterated by the Antichrist as he will tolerate no rivals to his hegemony.
Antichrist will do everything that is opposed to infallible teaching and holy example of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Tomorrow's article will explore how completely the figures of Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism contradict Our Lord as much as the figures of Modernity. For now, however, these words from the book that inspired fourteen year-old Therese Martin to seek admission the Carmel of Lisieux are rather pertinent:
However, it would not be correct to conclude from this testimony that there will be none of the elect left on earth, and that the Son of God will not fail to keep the promise made to His Church, when He sid, Propter electos, dies breviabuntur ("because of the elect, the days will be shortened"). Moreover, St. John, in his [Apocalypse] adds, "And he [the beast] will be worshiped by those who dwell upon the earth whose names are not written in the book of life."
St. Augustine tells us that, in the reign of the Antichrist, thee will be multitudes of martyrs who will display a heroic constancy, and also a number, more or less large, of confessors who will manage to escape into caves and high or sheer mountains, and God will see to it that these sanctuaries shall elude the vigilance and investigations of the persecutors, and will not permit the Devil to point them out them.
Daniel tells us that, at the time of when this terrible persecution breaks out, the abomination of desolation will openly sit enthroned in the holy place. "The king shall do s he pleases," says Daniel. "He shall exalt himself and make himself greater than any god; he shall utter dreadful blasphemies against the God of god . . . He shall have no regard for the gods of his ancestors . . . for no good shall he have regard."
In other words, once the man of sin has cowed the human once by his threats and entangled it in the meshes of his lies and wiles, he will observe no restraint, show his hand, and act openly. He will not permit anyone to worship or invoke any other god than himself, and will proclaim himself sole lord of heaven and earth. Wherever he is not present in person, men will be obliged to pay homage to his image or statue. Et elevabitur, mangifcabitur adversus ominem Deum. He will tolerate neither the Mosaic religion, nor natural religion itself. He will persecute with equal thoroughness Jews, schismatics, heretics, deists, and every sect that recognizes the existence of a supreme being and the immortality of the life to come. Yet God, in His wisdom, will draw good from evil. The horrible tempest that His justice has allowed to be unleashed upon the earth will result in the disappearance of false religions. Along with Judaism, it will abolish the remains of Mohammedans, idolatrous superstitious, and every religion hostile to the Church.
It will dead the finishing blow to the sects of darkness. Freemasonry, Carbonarism, Illuminism, and all subversive societies will vanish in the vortex of wickedness which will be their work, and which they had prepared for centuries in the belief that it would be their definitive, supreme triumph. They will have assisted unintentionally in the establishment of the reign of unity foretold by our Lord: "There one flock then, and one shepherd."
The triumph of the wicked one will be of short duration, but the consolations that follow will be universal, abundant, proportionate to the extent of the tribulations to the Church will have suffered.
However, the final consummation will not come yet, as it is written:
And when the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and loud voices in heaven cried out; the voices of angels and of virgins, together with the voices of confessors and holy martyrs, will hail Christ with praise and acclamations, giving thanks for His victory over the Antichrist, and for the extermination of the wicked. All men, now become worshipers of one and the same God, all professing the same faith, united in the same adoration, sharing the same table, will exclaim in chorus: "The kingdom of this world now belongs our Lord and to his Anointed One . . . We praise you, O Lord God Almighty, who is and who was and who are to come; because You have assumed your great power, and You have begun Your reign. (Father Charles Arminjon, The End of the Present World and the Mysteries of the Future Life, translated by Susan Conroy and Peter McEnerny. Manchester, New Hampshire: Sophia Institute Press, 2008, pp. 67-68.)
Our weapon in these times has to be the same as that used by Pope Saint Pius X: Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary. Pray the Rosary. Pray the Rosary. Pray the Rosary.
We must enfold ourselves into the love of the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus as we make reparation for our own many sins, which are so responsible for the worsening of the state of the Church Militant on earth and of the world-at-large, as we seek to restore all things in Christ the King and Mary our Immaculate Queen.
The enemies of Christ the King within in our souls and in the world-at-large will be defeated by Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary and the fulfillment of her Fatima Message.
Have every confidence that this will be so!
Isn't it time to pray a Rosary now?
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us!
Vivat Christus Rex! Viva Cristo Rey!
Saint Joseph, pray for us.
