February 4, 2014, the Feast of Saint Andrew Corsini:
Today’s article, Ratzinger the “Restorer” of Tradition?, focuses attention on the man who announced his resignation from the conciliar Petrine Ministry on February 11, 2013, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI. The antipope emeritus’s rejection of the “ecumenism of return” was not something he theorized about in his “papal” talks. No, this apostate dissuaded a Lutheran woman from converting to what she thought was the Catholic Church. How can anyone persist in the belief that Ratzinger meant to be a “restorer” of Tradition?
Here is a link to the Donations page, which was placed on this site two days ago: New Donations Page! We do need your assistance at this time. Thank you.
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us. Saint Andrew Corsini, pray for us.
February 2, 2014, the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Commemoration of the Fourth Sunday after the Epiphany:
As you may be able tell, I am still on a learning curve concerning how to edit a website created by Word Press. (No, I don’t have the patience for “tutorial videos” or the time for “community help forums.”)
I did discover only yesterday, February 1, 2014, that one can “navigate” from article to article fairly quickly by clicking on the particular date of an article as this will take one to the page of that day’s posting. Readers can then go back and forth by clicking on the “Previous” or “Next” links on the top of the page. This is something that I did not know prior to yesterday.
For my own purposes only, however, I have added this introduction to the first page one sees on this site to replicate a little of how readers used to find articles on the home page on the original Christ or Chaos, site. Pardon me while I still experiment with the features as there are only so many hours in a day).
Two articles are being published today. The first, Yet She Will Remain In Good Standing, deals with the well-deserved award that the pro-abortion, pro-perversity Catholic named Nancy Patricia D’Alesandro Pelosi is to receive from Planned Barrennhood Federation of America.
The second is a republished reflection on the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary: The Sword of Sorrow.
For those of you who did not check this site yesterday, permit me to provide the link to yesterday’s article here: Making the Queen Serve the Handmaid. The article deals with the continued assault against the Holy Faith being waged by Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his band of conciliar revolutionaries.
The Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary reminds us that Our Lady has always been he humble handmaid of the Lord. She humbled herself this day by submitting to the rituals of the law although she was not in need of such a ritualistic purification because of her Perpetual Virginity. This is the day that Our Lady presented her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, in the same Temple where He would be found twelve years later answering questions of the rabbis, the same Temple whose curtain would be torn in two from top to bottom as He breathed His last on the wood of the Holy Cross to redeem us, thereby signifying the permanent end of the Old Covenant and the supersession of Judaism by Catholicism as the true religion.
The aged Simeon, who waited patiently every day in the Temple for the fulfillment of the promise that God had made to him, that he would not die before his eyes had seen and his arms had beheld the Messiah, sent the first Sword of Sorrow plunging through Our Lady’s Sorrowful and and Immaculate Heart when he prophesied that the Child he beheld would be destined for the rise and for the fall of man, a sign to be opposed, a Sign of Contradiction.
We must never fear to be signs of contradiction in our own lives in imitation of the THE Sign of Contradiction, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, as He hung on the wood of the Holy Cross to redeem us as he was mocked and reviled by the very people from whose stock He had taken His Sacred Humanity. We must be willing to suffer all manner of calumny and humiliation for the many times that we have preferred human respect to fidelity to Our Lord, for the many times we have refused to call upon Our Lady’s maternal intercession, for the many times we have refused to “take sides,” especially in our day by refusing to reject conciliarism and its ravenous wolves once and for all. Our Lady, Help of Christians, pray for us! Saint Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church and Protector of the Faithful, pray for us.
There will also be a Donations page added by tomorrow morning for reasons that will be explained thereon. There may be minimum wage work on the horizon for me to supplement what we receive at present. In the meantime, the work of this site needs the urgent support of those who find it worthwhile and have the means to make a non-tax-deductible financial gift.
In other words, press the icon below and make a non-tax-deductible financial gift if you have the means to do so:
Finally, links to two articles on other sites are being provided.
The first of these is an article written by valiant defender of Catholic truth, Mr. Mark Stabinski, who is kind enough to send out many of the articles on this site to his e-mail list. Mr. Stabinski’s What Cardinal Eijk Forgot to Say.
The second article other than those on this site that I want to call to your attention is yet another superb article written by yet another defender of truth, Dr. Paul Byrne, whom we are honored to know. Jahi McMath, can you move?
is perhaps Dr. Byrne’s best article to date on the medical industry’s manufactured myth of “brain death.” Jahi McMath is a living human beng.
A blessed Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary to you all.
February 1, 2014, the Feast of Saint Ignatius of Antioch: Although a new article should appear by tomorrow morning, Sunday, February 2, 2014, the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Commemoration of the Fourth Sunday after the Epiphany, there is a new article that has been posted on the continuing madness of the conciliar revolutionaries: Making the Queen Serve the Handmaid.
Monday’s update will include a word or two about Professor Massimo Introveigne, who committed the sin of rash judgment by claiming that traditionalist Catholics were to blame for the stealing of a relic of the late Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II. It turned that the relic was stolen by drug addicts who had no idea what they were stealing. They wanted the gold in the reliquary.
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
Saint Ignatius of Antioch, pray for us.
January 31, 2014: the Feast of Saint John Bosco:
Two articles are being published today.
The first is an original that nevertheless goes over old ground:
The second is a revised article on the work of Saint John Bosco:
Readers will note that a new page, “The Follies of Naturalism Page,” has been added to this site. Articles dating back to 2006 on the original
Also, as job prospects have not materialized as of yet, although one seems more of a possibility than others, it would be very nice to have more of this site’s readership support its work by means of non-tax-deductible financial gifts. Eight individuals assisted us a month ago to get through the month of January. They cannot be expected to do so again this month. If you have not given in the past and find this work helpful, therefore, I would ask you to send an non-tax-deductible gift at this time. Thank you.
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
Saint John Bosco, pray for us.
January 30, 2014, the Feast of Saint Martina:
As you can tell, I am still experimenting some with the new format. I beg your patience as I seek to restore the sidebars on the home page of the original Christ or Chaos, which is now an archive site.
Until I become more familiar with Word Press, therefore, this page will serve as a very brief introduction to new articles.
Today’s new article, Vintage Ratzinger, All Right , discusses the continued pining for the supposedly “orthodox” Ratzinger as opposed to the supposedly more revolutionary Bergoglio on the part of those in the Motu world who do not realize that there is no space between Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI and Jorge Mario Bergoglio on matters of theological substance.
Although I was going to write about the reigning caesar for today’s new posting, I decided to postpone that for a day. There should be another “follies of naturalism” article on Saturday, February 1, 2014, the Feast of Saint Ignatius of Antioch. And tomorrow’s posting also will feature a republished article on Saint John Bosco.
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
Saint Martina, pray for us.
January 29, 2014: Flexible Enough to Go To Hell discusses Jorge Mario Begoglio’s and Oscar Andres Maradiaga Rodriguez’s belief, shared that we must be “flexible” in light of “contemporary circumstances.”
January 27, 2014, No Space Between Ratzinger and Bergoglio, part seven, concludes my series, begun on the original Christ or Chaos site, explaining that there is no difference between Joseph Ratznger/Benedict XVI and Jorge Mario Bergoglio on matters of theological substance.
