June 27, 2014, Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus:

Today is the Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Three republished reflections are offered to the readership of this site today: No One Is A Stranger to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Tender Mercies and Enthroning the Heart of True, Unsurpassed Love In Our Homes.

We are so ungrateful and so indifferent in the face of the great, tender mercies that have been showered upon us by the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, formed out of and beating as one with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. A marvelous reflection, written by Father Francois Charmot, S.J., in In Retreat With the Sacred Heart summarizes the Trinitarian nature of the love that flows out for us from the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus:

If I did not have some knowledge of the Heart of Jesus, how little would I realize the love of the Father!

But, looking upon the pierced Heart of the Incarnate Word, I can say with assurance: blessed be Thou, O Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ, who, in Him, has heaped upon us all Thy spiritual blessings!

Before the creation of the world Thou hast chosen us in Jesus, in order that we may be holy with Him, through the love of the blessed Trinity.

Thy Son is charity, as Thou, Father, art charity.

He is all charity, as thou art all charity.

The charity of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost is the same, equal in Three Persons.

There are not three charities, but one singe coeternal love.

With what love I have been loved infinitely, neither more nor less by Thee, Father, than by the Son and by Thy Holy Spirit, since before the creation of the world!

If I believe that Jesus loves me, I believe that His Father loves me just as much, and it is Thy Word who declares to me that Thou, Father, and Thy Holy Spirit wish to dwell in me.

All those whom the Heart of Jesus loved: His disciples, the children, the sinners, the diseased, the poor, the humble, the persecuted.

Thou, Father, also loved them with the same love.

The Blessed Virgin was loved no less by Thee than by Thy Son, her Son, and by Thy Spirit.

O Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ, blessed be Thou for having foreordained that we should be Thy Sons in thine only begotten Son, sons of adoption through Thy Son incarnate

Thou hast willed, by this gracious predestination, that the Heart of Thy well-beloved Son should make us sharers in the love of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

For this Heart encompasses all that the charity of the Three Persons could communicate from its Fire to the Incarnate Word.

In this Heart we possess by heritage such an effusion of the Holy Spirit, such a furnace of love, such an ocean of mercy, such an outpouring of tenderness, that it is impossible to imagine any others in some perfect creature which would be closer to infinite charity.

That is why, O Father, we know thy love through the Heart of Jesus.

Kind Father, kindest of Fathers, incomparably kind Father, Thou hast willed that through the pierced Heart of Thy Son, we should know the extent of Thy charity, Thy goodness, Thy paternity,  Thy longanimity, Thy mercy, Thy pardon, Thine eternal remission of sin.

And when this Heart which has so loved men–even to the shedding of all Its blood for them–finally ceased to beat, the death of Thy Son bore witness, even as the sacrifice of His Father who had delivered Him, that the love of the Three Persons for us outweighs the very life of the Man-God.

Through the pierced Heart of Thy Son, O infinitely good Father, grant me the grace to believe implicitly in Thy love, to love Thee as a Son, as Thy Son Jesus, who abandoned Himself to Thee in the agony and on the cross in utter helplessness and total destitution, solely because Thou were His Father. (Father Francois Charmot, S.J., In Retreat With the Sacred Heart, The Newman Press, 1956, pp. 16-18.)

A blessed Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus to you all!

Let us never be ungrateful or indifferent to the tender mercies shown us by the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Let our own hearts fly unto these tender mercies through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

This date, June 27, is usually the date on which the Feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Help is celebrated or commemorated. Although it is suppressed this year, we can nevertheless pray the devotions to Our Lady of Perpetual Help, which we do every Tuesday evening following our family Rosary and will do this evening as well.

Part two of yesterday’s article, A New Sense for a New Faith, part one, will appear tomorrow, Saturday, June 28, 2014, the Feast of Saint Irenaeus within the Octave of the Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. It is meant to a way to send Jorge off on vacation by reviewing the convergence of revolutionary forces that he has let loose to do the work of Antichrist in his false church and in the world-at-large as part of his “new evangelization.”

An article or, more likely, a video presentation, should appear next week once the Supreme Court gets through announcing its end-of-term decisions in various cases, including the Hobby Lobby case that concerns the ObamaDeathCare “family planning” mandate. Just as a baseball season consists of one hundred sixty-two games, making daily “life or death” commentaries by sports columnists so laughable, a term of the Supreme Court of the United States of America can only be judged when it is over. It is yet to be seen whether the remaining cases deliver the same kind of rebukes to the reigning caesar’s quest for total power and thought control as have been issued within the past few days.

Cor Iesu Sacratissimum, miserere nobis.

Cor Iesu Sacratissimum, miserere nobis.

Cor Iesu Sacratissimum, miserere nobis.

Our Lady of Perpetual Help, pray for us.

June 24, 2014, Articles

June 24, 2014, Feast of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist:

Work on the International Theological Commission’s deconstruction, distortion and misrepresentation of the sensus fidei proceeds slowly. It is my hope to have a mercifully brief synopsis of this apologia in behalf of “listening to the people” by tomorrow morning.

Today, though, there are two articles.

One deals with Nancy Patricia D’Alesandro Pelosi, Monsters of Their Own Making, and the other is a republished reflection for the feast day of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist: His Name Shall Be John.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint John the Baptist, pray for us.


June 22, 2014, Article

June 22, 2014, Sunday within the Octave of Corpus Christi (the Second Sunday after Pentecost):

Although I am going to get to other work this coming week, the conciiarists keep getting in the way of my doing so.

Today’s article is a follow-up to Friday’s article, Where the Absurd Is A Normal Way of Life. The current article, The English and Irish Martyrs Died for This?, serves principally as a reference resource to demonstrate the logical progression of false ecumenism with the Anglican sect into a morass of gooey syncretism. None of this can come from the Catholic Church. None of this has ever been sanctioned by any true pope or any of Holy Mother Church’s twenty true councils.

Apostasy is here. Do you care? Can Holy Mother Church give us a little bit of truth and lots of error or lots of truth and a little bit of error? Never! She is the spotless, virginal Mystical Spouse of her Divine Founder, Invisible Head and Mystical Bridegroom.

Tomorrow’s article will be a review of yet another “unofficial” and “non-binding” statement of the International Theological Commission, which works as an intergalactic satellite of the Conciliar Congregation for the Desrtuction, Deformation and Deconstruction of the Catholic Faith,  that will be cited endlessly as part of the “official” and “binding” teaching of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. This new statement is a redefinition of the sensus fidei that the conciliar revolutionaries meant to destroy and replace with a synthetic sense of the faith. The new statement is merely an apologia for what is already a fait accompli: a new sensus fidei for a new religion with new liturgical rites and new pastoral practices and new canon law.

Finally, I ask your prayers today for my fellow classmates from the Class of 1969 of Oyster Bay High School as it was forty-five years ago today that our graduation took place. I remember many of my classmates in my prayers each day. The passage of time and the divisions that been wrought by the forces of Modernity and Modernism have seen once close friendships come to an end or simply just fade away.

All of that really does not matter, though. What matters is to pray that all of those whom God’s Holy Providence has placed in our lives will be converted to the true Catholic Faith before they die so that they can persist in the bosom of Holy Mother Church to the point that they are called to make an accounting of their lives at the moment of their Particular Judgment. We must be making constant preparations ourselves for that fearful moment.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Paulinus of Nola, pray for us.

June 21, 2014, Republished Reflection

June 21, 2014, Within the Octave of Corpus Christi and the Commemoration of Saint Aloysius Gonzaga, S.J.:

Although the Octave of Corpus Christi takes liturgical precedence in some places in the Catholic catacombs today, reducing the Feast of Saint Aloysius of Gonazaga to a commemoration, every June 21 should be a cause of great rejoicing for Catholics. Indeed, Saint Aloysius’s ardor for Our Lord in His Real Presence was such that his soul burned so  warmly after the reception of Holy Communion that he would have to throw himself into the fountain in a nearby piazza to cool off his ardor. How appropriate that is pearl of Catholic youth’s feast day, whether celebrated principally or commemorated, should fall within the Octave of Corpus Christi.

My own devotion to Saint Aloysius has been of longstanding. It was at Saint Aloysius School in Great Neck, New York, that I learned my Catholic Faith and it was at Saint Aloysius Church that I received my First Holy Communion and was Confirmed as a soldier in the Army of Christ the King. It is with great joy that I hereby republish my brief reflection on Saint Aloysius, Saint Aloysius, Help Us to be as Pure as Thee.

There will be a brief follow-up (well, it has a lengthy appendix to serve as reference source) to yesterday’s article Where the Absurd Is A Normal Way of Life posted later today or tomorrow.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Aloysius Gonzaga, S.J., pray for us.

June 19, 2014, Republished Reflection

June 19, 2014, the Solemnity of Corpus Christi:

Marching With Our King. Today is the great Feast of Corpus Christi. This article, written eight years ago now and slightly revised over the years, is an exhortation to the readers of this site to spend more and more time in adoration before Our Beloved before His Real Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament if this is at all possible in your area.

Adoration is the first end of prayer, including the perfect prayer that is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in which Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ becomes Incarnate under the appearances of bread and wine when a men man, uttering mere words over the elements of the earth, calls Him down from Heaven. We must adore God with our whole mind, soul, heart, body and strength.

To spend time before the Most Blessed Sacrament in prayer is a foretaste of Heavenly glories. Our goal in life is to behold the glory of the Beatific Vision of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost for all eternity in the company of Our Lady, Saint Joseph, our Guardian Angels (each of whom beholds the Beatific Vision as he tries to guide us home to Heaven!), our patron saints and all of the members of the Church Triumph, whose ranks we hope and pray will include our dearest and nearest relatives and friends. We must make time for the foretaste of Heavenly glories by means of profound Eucharistic Adoration in this life is we want to enjoy the glories of Heaven itself for all eternity.

There are infused graces that are flooded into the souls of those who spend time in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament, those souls who are conscious of the need to make reparation for their sins as they give thanksgiving to God for all of the favors, both spiritual and temporal, they have received and who recognize the need to petition God for the favors we need, both spiritual temporal, starting with an earnest petition each day that we be given the grace to have a holy and sacramentally-provided-for death. Our Lord stands ready to send us this infusion of graces through the loving hands of His Most Blessed Mother, who is mystically with us when we pray before her Divine Son’s Real Presence. All we need to do is to arrange our lives in such a way as to make time for prayer before Our Eucharistic King and Lord.

We must, of course, be conscious of our need to get to the Sacrament of Penance on a weekly basis in order that our reception of Our Lord’s Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity in Holy Communion will be worthy and fervent. The frequent, devout and worthy reception of Our Lord in Holy Communion gives strength even to those souls who have been steeped in one sin after another, those souls who have refused to surrender to the devil’s attacks upon them over the years:

And then come, and accuse me, saith the Lord: if your sins be as scarlet, they shall be made as white as snow: and if they be red as crimson, they shall be white as wool. If you be willing, and will hearken to me, you shall eat the good things of the land. (Isaias 1: 18-19.)

We must ask Our Lady on this great feast day of Corpus Christi, which, of course, is celebrated as an Octave in those chapels that use the Missal of Saint Pius V  before it was “reformed” by the revolutionary efforts of Annibale Bugnini and Ferdinando Antonelli in the 1950s, to help give us more and more graces to recognize the Most Sacred Heart of her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, beats for with great love in the Most Blessed Sacrament.

We must ask Our Lady to help us approach the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart with such fervor and devotion that we will consider it as a great loss if ever there is a day we are unable to get a true offering of Holy Mass and unable to spend at least some time with her Divine Son, Who is the Prisoner of Love in tabernacles today just as He was the Prisoner of her Virginal and Immaculate Womb from the time of His Incarnation to the day of His Nativity.

We must also thank Our Lord and His Most Blessed Mother for our true bishops and true priests who make it possible for us to have the Sacraments in this time of apostasy and betrayal, remembering to pray that more young men will have the courage to renounce the world and study to become an alter Christus so that he, acting in persona Christi in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, can make Our Lord present in the Most Blessed Sacrament and to bless us with that Most Blessed Sacrament on great feast days such as this one.

A blessed Feast of Corpus Christi to you all!

There should be another new article tomorrow.

Today should be devoted entirely to gratitude to Eucharistic King for the great gift of Himself in Holy Communion and our ability worship Him in His Real Presence even though He sitteth at the right hand of God the Father in Heaven. What a mystery of love. Words fail.



June 18, 2014, Article

June 18, 2014, Feast of Saint Ephrem the Deacon and the Commemoration of the Feast of Saints Mark and Marcellianus:

Although it took me much, much longer than expected, What Constitutes “Rest” for a Figure of Antichrist, part two, has been posted.

As noted early last week after the syncretist “prayer for peace” in the Vatican Gardens on Pentecost Sunday, June 8, 2014, those who don’t see the true state of the Church Militant in this time of apostasy and betrayal simply do not want to make the sacrifices necessary to suffer the consequences of admitting that the conciliar church is false, a a counterfeit ape of the Catholic Church, and that its “popes” been been spiritual robber barons whose words and actions have shown them to be enemies of Christ the King and of the souls for whom He shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood.

There will be two more article this week on the follies of naturalism, including Nancy Patricia D’Alesandro lecturing the conciliar “archbishop” of San Francisco, Salvatore Cordileone, for speaking at a “March for Marriage” in Washington, District of Columbia, and another article on the mess created by the Bushes and made worse by Obama’s crew of globalists in Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East.

Other than that, however, I must concentrate on other work as the support for this site simply is not there to continue at the pace at which articles have been written. Check back from time to time as devotional articles will be republished on various feast days and, of course, Jorge might say something new, something I really doubt as he has said it all so many times before.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Ephrem the Deacon, pray for us.

Saint Mark and Marcellianus, pray for us.

June 16, 2014, Ferial Day (Resumed Mass of the First Sunday after Pentecost:

The conclusion of a two-part series reviewing Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s eighth interview will have to wait for another day. What Constitutes “Rest” for A Figure of Antichrist?, part one, was published yesterday.

Today is the tenth anniversary of the death of the inimitable William C. Koneazy. This reflection of a truly larger-than-life champion of the Catholic Faith was written ten years ago and updated five years ago. It is hereby republished with warm memories of a man who brought true Catholic joy to everyone he met. Please pray for the soul of this lover of the Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and His Most Blessed Mother. A True Catholic Rendezvous: A Personal Reminiscence of the late +William C. Koneany, R.I.P. 

Eternal rest grant until him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and all of the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Finally, Father Louis J. Campbell, has given me his most kind and gracious permission to post his sermon from Trinity Sunday, which was delivered at Saint Jude Shrine in Stafford, Texas. You will find this to be a powerful defense of the Catholic Faith. I thank Father Campbell for the permission that he has given me to post his sermon for the readers of this site: Facing the Bitter Truth.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Trinity Sunday Article and Reflection

June 15, 2014: Trinity Sunday and the Commemoration of Saints Vitus and Modestus and the Commemoration of the First Sunday after Pentecost:

What Constitutes “Rest” for A Figure of Antichrist?, part one provides a bit of relatively brief commentary on five of answers that Jorge Mario Bergoglio gave to the Talmudist, Henrique Cymerman, who interviewed him for La Vanguardia newspaper in Spain and an Isaeli television channel. Commentary on the rest of the answers should appear by tomorrow morning.

Also being called to your attention today, Trinity Sunday, is a reflection written two years ago, Only One God Is The True God: The Most Blessed Trinity, that was, obviously written when the now “Antipope Emeritus I” was reigning as the universal public face of apostasy.

A blessed Trinity Sunday to you all.

Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity, pray for us.

Saints Vitus and Modestus, pray for us.

June 14, 2014, Special Report and Commentary

June 14, 2014, Whit-Saturday and the Commemoration of the Feast of Saint Basil the Great:

Although much later than anticipated, I have finally posted the report that I wrote about the Society of Saint John in the Fall of 2000. The report is prefaced with a new foreword and closes with links to articles about the Society of Saint John by Mr. James Bendell and Mrs. Randy Engel.

Hereby posted are: Relevant Once Again: A Special Report on the Society of Saint John (2000) and No Excuses For Those Who Indemnify the Society of Saint John. A caveat: those who do not want to read about such matters should take a pass on the report and the commentary. The report is being published as written in 2000, save for the changing of the present tense into the past tense in some places so as not to confuse the reader, to offer information that might be useful to those who might come under the sway of Father Carlos Urrutogoity. The commentary, written yesterday into early this morning, elaborates on some points made in the report.

A reflection on the life and work of Saint Basil the Great, “Perhaps You Have Not Met A Catholic Bishop Before”, can be found at the original Christ or Chaos website.

Finally, Jorge has given his eighth interview (someone out there is keeping count!). Although I would rather have an infestation of chiggers than deal with this new interview, I will try to have a posting for the multitudes about it by tomorrow morning Trinity Sunday.

As I noted a few days ago, I will continue to write for the site despite other work that needs to be done as circumstances warrant me to do so, which Jorge, who seems more intent on killing me from exhaustion that his predecessor, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, on doing.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Basil the Great, pray for us.

June 13, 2014, Article and Update

June 13, 2014: Ember Friday in the Octave of Pentecost and the Commemoration of Saint Anthony of Padua:

Calling the Hammer of Heretics is an unexpected article tying Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s call for “compromise” against a spirit of “rigid ideology” (his code for adhering to Catholic doctrine “too strictly”) to the rejection of “compromise” by believing Mohammedans in Syria and Iraq as Catholics and other Christians are slaughtered or forced to leave their ancient homelands. (My brief reflection on the life of Saint Anthony of Padua can be found at: Saint Anthony, Help Us Find Our Way To Heaven.

The posting of my report, written in 2000, about the Society of Saint John and of an accompanying commentary has been pushed back until tomorrow, Whit-Saturday and the Commemoration of Saint Basil the Great.

As it is probably the case that only few people checked last night’s update, I will reprise it here:

Update: As we were away all day, this is the first chance that I have had to request prayers for the repose of the immortal soul of Reverend Kenneth Walker of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter, who was shot to death last evening at the Mater Misericordiae Mission in downtown Phoenix, Arizona. Also critically wounded was the Reverend Joseph Terra, who had been the pastor of Our Lad of Fatima Chapel in Pequannock, New Jersey, for a time in the 1990s when I would drive the sixty miles from Bethpage, Long Island, New York, to go there.

Please pray for the repose of the immortal soul of the Reverend Kenneth Walker and for the consolation of his family at this time, praying also the recovery of Reverend Joseph Terra. We live in terrible times.

Prayers are also requested for the repose of the souls of Mr. James D. Giuffre, one of the founders of Saint Jude Shrine in Stafford, Texas, who died on Wednesday, May 28, 2014, at the age of seventy-five (see a moving tribute to him written by his brother, Mr. Gary Giuffre, Death of an Unknown Soldier – James D. Giuffre), and Mr. Peter Creighton, who died in Rockland County, New York, on Friday, June 6, 2014.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their soul and all of the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Anthony of Padua, pray for us.
