Do You Think You Are Your Own Master?

 You’re not! St. Paul reminds us that, “None of us lives as his own master and none of us dies as his own master....Both in life and death we are the Lord’s.”

If you want to lead a happy life love God and His commandments. Sin is the cause of all unhappiness. Anyone who lives with the Lord as Master recognize that nothing “just happens.” Everything, both joy and sorrow are gifts that offer us an opportunity to grow in holiness. Are you sick? What an invitation to grow in patience and in love of neighbor by offering your sufferings for others. Are you healthy? What an opportunity to use your good health to serve and perform the duties of your state in life with energy! Are you treated with contempt? What an opportunity to unite your humiliations with Christ on the cross. Are you honored? What an opportunity to express your gratitude to Jesus Christ publicly and attribute all your success to HIm.

As St. Paul says, “Both in life and death we are the Lord’s. That is why Christ died and came to life again that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living.” Have faith and trust in the Lord and His love for you. “Perfect love casts out fear,” even fear of a virus that 99.8% of people survive. Death is inevitable and even that sad prospect is an opportunity to serve to the very end. 

My Jesus, I trust in you.

Be Your Own Health Advocate: Check Out the COVID Cures!

Isn’t it time to stop acting like the Wuhan virus is a death sentence? There are a number of effective protocols that nip the virus in the bud. It’s a sad thing to think that “experts” and the mainstream media deliberately withheld information about Covid treatment because deaths from the disease served the agenda of terrifying the populace into accepting draconian, tyrannical control. If you have another explanation let’s hear it. Dr. Fauci knew in 2005 that HCQ was an effective treatment against corona viruses, so why did we only hear about wearing masks and social distancing? Why not information about strategies to enhance the immune system, like taking Vitamin D? Most of the deaths are occurring in people who are seriously deficient! Let’s face it. The capacity for greedy and evil men (generic term meaning men and women) to willingly sacrifice human life to the BIG agenda fills history books and the Wuhan strategy proved to be incredibly successful at increasing government control by terror! Expect a second wave that mirrors the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security’s pandemic game, SPARS 2025-2028. Since the first “game” worked so well, why would they not try a repeat? 

If you can’t trust the government “experts” there are others out there whom you can trust. Check out these treatments.

Do You Fear Death?

Why? Do you love God? Do you love His commandments? Do you love your neighbor? Then you have nothing to fear. Jesus took on the burden of all our sins. We have only to accept His love and reform our lives. Love of Christ casts out fear. An Easter homily by Pseudo-Chrysostem puts death in proper perspective:
...the types and images of the past prefigured the perfect and eternal reality which has now been revealed. The presence of what is epresented makes the symbol obsolete: when the king appears in person no one pays reverence to his statue. How far the symbol falls short of the reality is seen from the fact that the symbolic Passover celebrated the brief life of the firstborn of the Jews, whereas the real Passover celebrates the eternal life of all mankind. It is a small gain to escape death for a short time, only to die soon afterward; it is a very different thing to escape death altogether as we do through the sacrifice of Christ, our Passover.
If you love Jesus and His commands, you have nothing to fear. The law of God is for our good like the instruction manual for your car. Would you try to run your car on vinegar? The law of God is the instruction manual for a happy life, and death is the door that leads to paradise if you use that manual and follow its instructions!

Ready or Not! The Judgment is Coming. Will You be Caught Off Guard?

St. Peter tells us to stay awake! And his letters could be personal messages to us they are so relevant to our own time. So prick up your ears and listen to this passage from the First Letter of St. Peter:

"Do not be surprised, beloved, that a trial by fire is occurring in your midst.

Rehabilitating Judas: Is this the Vatican Version of a Stephen King Novel?

God help us. 

The photo above appeared on the front page of the Vatican newspaper on Holy Thursday of all days. Who is that dead body Jesus is cradling in his arms like a lover?

Dr. Ryan Cole: An Expert with Evidence, not Propaganda!


Dr. Ryan Cole Blows The Whole COVID-19 Propaganda Away

From High Fashion Melanie To Trash Tacky Jill: Get ready for the Gaudy Groaners!

I thought Jill Biden looked pretty tacky on Election day. She and Kamala seemed to be going for the Easter Egg basket look. And the matching blue gloves -- mmm...not a good choice in my opinion. What's wrong with black leather gloves? They're always in fashion!

The windmills of my mind wondering about the future of the priesthood

Alter Christus
Would married priests include same-sex married men since same-sex "marriage" is now legal? In other words, how would they be able to say that the married priesthood is only for men married to women thereby discriminating against men married to men? Or, if women become priests, women married to women?

As for women priests, that would indicate approval for same-sex marriage - lesbianism in this case - because theologically the Bride of Christ is the Church therefore priests, as alter Christus, are married to the Church. If women are priests they would be married to the Church which would indicate lesbianism.

Additionally, married men and women as priests would indicate approval of polygamy since a priest as a married man would be married to his wife and to the Church. And a woman priest married to a man and to the Church, or a woman priest married to another woman and the Church, would indicate approval of poly fidelity.

Furthermore, transgender people would be in an uproar to get equal rights to the Priesthood of Christ. A transgender woman would really be a male priest; a transgender man, who is really a woman, married to a lesbian could be a priest. The result of that would be to remake the Bride of Christ into a gender neutral entity so that no parties would be offended by the Church being cisgender.

In addition, all of this would mean that the laity would likewise be able to participate in such unions.

Wouldn't it be better to leave the Priesthood as Christ founded it?

Don't Let Wickedness Disturb Your Peace: God Uses Evil to Bring about Good!

I generally begin my morning by praying the Office of Readings and meditating on selections from The Imitation of Christ and the Imitation of Mary. I think most Catholics are familiar with The Imitation of Christ by Thomas a Kempis written in the 15th century, but perhaps many haven't heard of The Imitation of Mary composed by a French Jesuit, Alexandre Joseph de Rouville, and published in 1768. These two books make me think of the prayer, "Jesus and Mary, I love you; save souls" because Jesus and Mary are perfect companions on the spiritual journey. 

Often the short chapters from the two books (I read one chapter from each every morning.) are in perfect harmony, like a song of praise and thanksgiving. Sometimes I marvel at the "coincidence" of how they blend so seamlessly. Thank You, Lord, for your gifts from the Holy Spirit!

Reflecting on the Empty Tomb: Death, Where is Your Sting?

A lot of people are focused on the number of deaths from the Chinese virus. They fulminate over anyone who won't join them in their handwringing hysteria accusing them of being hateful, calloused and not caring if people die. You would think there were bodies piling up in the streets.

Get Ready For It! It's Coming: the "Confrontation between the Church and the Anti-Church...between Christ and the Antichrist"

Beijing Accelerating Timeline for Possible Invasion of Taiwan, Expert Warns
"Beijing’s incursions are part of a series of dry runs in preparation for an invasion of Taiwan, John Mills, the former director of cybersecurity policy, strategy, and international affairs at the Office of the Secretary of Defense, told The Epoch Times.

Does Dr. Fauci Really Want You to "Follow the Science?" Vaccine Adverse Reactions are Growing!

Data from Vaccine Adverse Event Report administered by the CDC and the FDA
 and is carried on the HHS website. Follow the science! 

"Science is being suppressed for political and financial gain. Covid-19 has unleashed state corruption on a grand scale, and it is harmful to public health. Politicians and industry are responsible for this opportunistic embezzlement. So too are scientists and health experts. The pandemic has revealed how the medical-political complex can be manipulated in an emergency—a time when it is even more important to safeguard science."

How Long Before This Comes to the USA? Read the Headlines!

Many governments are cracking down on Easter religious services in the name of the Chinese virus with tyrannical controls instituted by governments intent on crushing civil rights. Remember that all of this is being done in the name of a virus that 99.8% of people under 65 survive, many with few complications. Even people like me in the "vulnerable" category have an almost 95% survival rate.
