Clericalism is Alive and Well in Amchurch!

Does Fr. Martin follow the
Holy Spirit or the
Spirit of this world?
I'm always amused by accusations that orthodox Catholics who uphold the teachings of the Church are filled with fear, hatred, homophobia, anger, and are bullies, raging maniacs...well, you get the picture. James Martin, also known as "Father," a Jesuit sadly reflective of the state to which that order has fallen, recently had another talk cancelled. It was due to the "haters" who run nasty, evil, vilifying...well you get the picture... websites and blogs that (sniff, sniff) result in the "censorship" of "progressives" like the good Fr. Martin who is compassionate, kind, sweet, loving...well you get the picture, upholder of all things perverse.

Catholic Judases Essentially Vote to Continue Killing Babies After 20 Weeks!

Yesterday the Senate shut down a vote on the bill to ban murdering babies after 20 weeks (Pain-capable Unborn Child Protection Act). Fourteen Catholic senators who voted to keep the filibuster going were enough to crush the vote. Think of it, those fourteen Catholics had the power to protect babies or keep the holocaust on full throttle, and they used their power to do the devil's work. Most of the Senate was in favor of voting on the bill, but they needed 60 senators to stop the filibuster. Those fourteen Judas Catholics tipped the balance. Now, unless Republican leadership resorts to the "nuclear option," the bill is essentially dead.

And so are babies like this little 20-week-old baby boy if their moms decide they don't want them.

Dexter Duggan Reviews the March for Life

Wanderer reporter, Dexter Duggan, a real journalist, contacted me last week asking for comments on the March for Life. He included some of them in his article. Go here to see what Dexter wrote and please commit to praying for abortion workers. Many of them just need a job and don't really understand the evil reality of abortion and its sordid history. Others are "true believers" in the liberal agenda believing the lies that freedom is in the license to do whatever you please. Actually, the queen of murder, founder of Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger (Slee), used to say as she aged (ungracefully), "I will do exactly as I please." She was a sad woman indeed who ended her life drug-addicted and nasty as a wet cat. Check out her call for legislation to ban babies. What a woman!

What the H, E, Double L is the Pastoral Approach? Well, I'll Tell You

The definition of “pastoral” when used as a noun means, “a work of literature portraying an idealized version of country life.”  In other words it is romanticized and washed of things like drought, weeds, wolves, snakes, insect pests, and life threatening injuries that can occur in the course of performing the duties of life on a farm.

Don't Eat That Sandwich....It's a Crime Against the Planet!

Really! Did you know that certain types of sandwiches cause global warming? After all, the scientists can't be wrong and some doing research at the University of Manchester say so. Well, no doubt every liberal in Congress will immediately dump the sandwiches and start eating sprouts wrapped in arugula (brought from home and carried in a reusable pouch). Oh, and by the way, what about the environmental impact of processing hops and corn to make alcohol? Really! When are they going to ban alcohol because of its global impact?

Do You Simply Stand Against What you Oppose, or Do You Witness For What You Believe?

I have just returned from a 12 day road trip with a friend who needed a companion along for the ride to Texas where she had the task of preparing her parent’s home to be sold.  It was also her goal to retrieve some precious treasures still in the house which were too large to be carried on a plane.  One such jewel was a cradle her father had made for his own children, including my friend, and which has now been slept in by most of his grandchildren.  

As we drove along, I read aloud from a tote bag full of books I had selected for the purpose of sharing specific chapters with my friend, a like minded Catholic, thoughtful, very smart, and leaps and bounds ahead of me, a convert, in knowledge of Church history and doctrine. 
Our trip each way took three days in the car so we had a LOT of time to read and discuss and read and discuss.  It was a kind of “retreat from the world” which whizzed by us, as we rolled along from one state to the next, and an opportunity to step outside our daily routines and spend the kind of time you generally only WISH you had with a good friend.

How to Converse With Your Local Grocery Store Cashier While Checking Out

Imam from Memphis, Tennessee,
home of Elvis Presley
"Property" means wives and children
Is it because trouble follows me everywhere or because I make trouble wherever I go? Is it because people are liberal and I am not, therefore when I speak they’re automatically offended? Maybe it’s because grocery store managers tell checkout cashiers to make friendly conversation with customers about the food they’re buying. I don’t know, but it all went terribly wrong tonight, not so much for me – I rather enjoyed the “conversation” – but for the cashier, whom I suppose was just trying to be friendly while making comments about my food.

Now I feel badly! Maybe he wasn’t bragging after all! Maybe he was just following orders: “Be friendly. Talk about the food customers are purchasing. If you like something they’re buying, tell them so. Tell them about your life and places you’ve been where you tasted food like the food they’re buying. Make their shopping experience here at our store memorable.”

The Democrats Can't Blame This One on Trump and the Republicans!

Well the government's back up or will be imminently. The Democrat bullies couldn't withstand the heat. But they showed just how despicable they are with this latest shut down. They will do anything to get their liberal agenda through no matter how many Americans it hurts. It's time to shut down these folks. Work to elect government officials who care about the country. Schumer, Pelosi, Kaine, and their buddies in the Democrat party aren't among them. It's time to boot these hoodlums out of Congress!

Console Your Mother's Heart on the Bloodiest Anniversary in History

Today is the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that overthrew EVERY law protecting unborn babies and, in fact, legalized abortion through all nine months of pregnancy in every state in the union.

In our country alone, clinic abortions have massacred 60 million babies who should be in the safest place on earth, their mommies' wombs. And that doesn't include the babies killed by abortifacients mislabeled as "contraception." The numbers worldwide are staggering. And the problems related to abortion are legion!

In the past 45 years, abortion has devalued the lives of every human person to the point that all the vulnerable are at risk. The abortion lobby promised that out of wedlock births, child abuse, and unwanted pregnancies would be reduced by abortion. The opposite happened. In fact, all those problems increased. Why wouldn't they? If you can kill a child up to birth, why wouldn't you slap around your sassy two-year-old. He's your property after all. Roe v. Wade said so! Studies show that most abused children were "wanted" by their parents.

Pray the rosary today to console the hearts of Jesus and Mary and for the conversion of those committed to the murder of the innocent.

In the Shadow of the Battle Between Life and Death, It is Good to Meditate on Hell

On Friday, the defenders of the most defenseless took to the streets of Washington to witness and give a voice to the babies. "Love Saves Lives!" was their theme and those who spoke illustrated it.

Yesterday, in contrast, the servants of hell in their vagina hats with their pro-abortion signs and their lewd messages took to the streets to champion the mortal sins of murder and lust.

Why Presidential Words Matter!

Thanks be to God for The Remnant, a Catholics newspaper that witnesses to the remnant who still embrace the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No matter how many or few we are, the truth we speak is magnified by The Truth Himself and by His Mother. Pray and fast for life!

#WhyWeMarch: Reflections on the March for Life 2018

I didn't go to the March for Life yesterday for several reasons, but I watched the rally program on EWTN and have been reviewing commentary and videos.

What an incredible event! And what an incredible crowd! 

For the first time a sitting President addressed the March live and in person even inviting a contingent to be there in the Rose Garden for the event. Surrounded by parents with smiling children and babes in arms, he gave an inspiring talk including saying he would sign the bill banning abortions for pain capable-infants in the womb when Congress puts it on his desk. It isn't enough, but it will save many. Let us all pray and fast that it happens!

Pro-Life Faculty at Notre Dame Address University President Fr. John Jenkins

It's good to know that there are at least a few faculty members at Notre Dame who are challenging the university's abortion/contraception health coverage. Please pray that Fr. Jenkins attendance at the March so touched his heart that he will rescind the evil policy that the administration has put in place that allows the murder of babies, the attack on innocence, and the violation of parental rights. Please, Notre Dame alumni, write to the school and object to their very anti-Catholic behavior. It's hard to understand an ordained priest shaking his fist at God. One wonders what the underlying motivation is: money? power? blackmail? There must be more to the story considering the damage to Notre Dame's reputation by fighting for the exemption as a conscience issue and then immediately doing a 180 and voluntarily instituting the mandate. For more in-depth coverage of the scandals at Notre Dame visit the Sycamore Trust. And if you are currently a student at Notre Dame be sure to check out this site to see how you can get an authentic Catholic education at the school which is becoming increasingly challenging.

Open letter to Fr. John Jenkins

#WhyWeMarch: Tim Tebow's Mom to Address Rose Dinner and March for Life

Praise God for those who love the Lord and know he is the Lord of Life. "For God so loved the world that He sent His only Son."

Doctors urged Pam Tebow to abort her 5th child, Heisman Trophy winner Tim. She refused. Today she addresses the hundreds of thousands attending the March for Life. Tonight she addresses attendees at the Rose Dinner. Pray for her and her family and all those marching for life today. The pro-aborts would prefer that Tim never saw the light of day.

#WhyWeMarch: On the Day of the March for Life Remember This Great Pope!

I've been reading the encyclicals of Pope Pius XI. He reigned from February 1922 to February 1939 between the two world wars. It was a time of both moral and political upheaval. In his book, Vicars of Christ, Charles Coulombe describes the problems faced by the new pope who was elected on the 14th ballot of the conclave:
[Pope Pius XI] faced a number of enormous problems brought about by the course of World War I; for the first time since Constantine, there were no Christian emperors -- indeed, there was no great power at all with a professedly Christian outlook. Moreover, Russia was actively exporting revolution....the defeat of Greece by Turkey in 1922 resulted in virtually the entire Armenian and Greek population of Asia Minor being driven out of Asia Minor (or killed). Thus, for the first time since St. Paul of Tarsus, a region once as Christian as Italy or Spain was almost totally bereft of the faithful....The construction of a power vacuum by the destruction of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the creation of the Weimar Republic boded badly for continued peace in Europe. The intial replacement of the "autocratic" Central European regimes with poorly established "democratic ones" would indeed be followed up by true totalitarian ones."

Guess Who's Leading Notre Dame's Delegation to the March for Life

What St. Nicholas would do to Fr. Jenkins!
...President John Jenkins, cheerleader for Barack Obama, the most pro-abortion president in history!

Yup, Fr. Jenkins in his philacteries and bells is leading Notre Dame's delegation to the March for Life.

This is the same Fr. Jenkins who made a point of crucifying pro-lifers who protested Notre Dame honoring Obama.  And if that doesn't make his presence the hypocrisy of the year, he is also responsible for making sure that faculty and students can kill babies in the womb with abortifacient birth control provided in the school's health plan.

Thought for the Day: We Gotta Get Outta This Place

I got up this morning with this song in my head and haven't been able to get rid of it yet.

It occurred to me

Update on the Papal Award to Abortion Extremist Lilianne Ploumen

I did a post the other day, Does Pope Francis Have No Shame? The following is an update on that post and the Vatican award. And it isn't encouraging, sad to say. But who can be surprised when people like Fr. Thomas Rosica and Fr. James Martin are part of the PR team?

From OnePeter5: When Can We Have a Vatican Run by Grownups?

Over the past few days, we’ve been covering a story that managed, despite outrage fatigue across the Catholic world, to still shock and upset the faithful. The story is documented here and here, so I won’t bog this post down in details. Suffice it to say that Lilianne Ploumen — a rabidly pro-abortion Dutch politician so dedicated to her cause that she raised $300 million in just six months for “family planning” and abortion services around the world — nevertheless received the Order of St. Gregory the Great award from the Vatican. This award has been described as “the preferred award to acknowledge an individual’s particular meritorious service to the Church.” Moreover, it is a papalaward, which of course at least infers that the pope approves of its bestowal (even though it appears its functional distribution goes through the Vatican Secretariat of State.) Read more here....

The Real Meaning of "Different Kinds of Priesthood"

Rev Dr Christina Beardsley
Transgender priest, Church of England
There is an article on One Peter Five by Maike Hickson titled Austrian Priest: Before Female Priests There Will Be Married Priests to which I posted a comment (using a pseudonym). My comment appears here below. 

Do 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?

Pet Peeve for the Day: Political Correctness

Unidos en Cristo / United in Christ cover
The book used at my parish.
I hate political correctness. I particularly hate political correctness when it invades the sanctuary. This morning at Mass my eyes kept going to the Mass booklets in the pew in front of me where they feature a large top headline IN SPANISH with the English underneath. Can English not even get top billing in our English-speaking country? Does anyone really think that if they have Mass booklets in Mexico (Anybody know?) they would list English first? Would they even include English? How many Americans are invading Mexico seeking sanctuary cities?

Then I came home and sat at my computer where I looked at the Catholic calendar distributed by the parish. You got it -- bilingual with all the months of the year and days of the week in Spanish first and all the feasts and solemnities, etc. in both languages each day in print so small it's unreadable. I took the calendar off the desk and threw it in the circular file. Then I looked through all the 2018 calendars I received in the mail and hung up one that has nice big blocks for writing my appointments and is all in English.

Blessed Laura Vicuna, Intercede for Marriage and for the Pope Who is Undermining It

Adulterous couples may not approach the altar for Communion. Blessed Laura offered her life for her mother, a desperate widow who became mistress to a lust-filled man in order to provide for her children. This little one knew that ONE MAY NEVER DO EVIL THAT GOOD MAY COME FROM IT.

Meditation for Sunday: What Are You Looking For?

Behold the Lamb of God.
John was standing with two of his disciples, and as he watched Jesus walk by, he said, "behold, the Lamb of God." The two disciples heard what he said and followed Jesus. Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them, "What are you looking for?" They said to him, "Rabbi" -- which translated means Teacher --, "where are you staying?" He said to them, "Come, and you will see." So they went and saw where Jesus was staying, and they stayed with him that day. It was about four in the afternoon. John 1: 35-40

Two questions and an invitation.

Does Pope Francis Have No Shame?

Hmm...Let me think...which pro-abortion, gay-
activist  person should I honor next?

Another day, another scandal from the Vatican. (Sigh!)

When I think that the U.S. bishops have a policy denying honors to pro-abortionists, I wonder how long that can stand with such an example from the pope. He seems to hate traditional Catholics while he honors some of the most scandalous people on the planet: Emma Bonino, an Italian abortionist; pro-abort and gay marriage-hyping Hollywood celebrities; population control advocates Paul Ehrlich and John Bongaarts. Good grief! The list just goes on and on.

The January 17th Trump Awards for Most Corrupt and Biased Mainstream Media Losers

Ugliest Church of the Year Award
Orlando Diocese, 2001
This is going to be interesting. President Donald Trump will announce his Fake News Awards to "the most corrupt and biased Mainstream Media losers" on January 17th!

This must mean that the losers will be added to the ranks of other Trump foes with monikers he has bestowed upon them including “Lyin’ Ted” Cruz, “Little Marco” Rubio, “Liddle” Bob Corker, “Low Energy Jeb” Bush and “Crooked Hillary” Clinton.

The latest on his list is "Sloppy Steve" Bannon, President Trump's former chief strategist dismissed in the wake of a disputed book about the Trump administration. Bannon also has been accused of being "responsible for the majority of the first-year leaks coming out of the Trump administration."

Praise God for Bishop Paprocki!

Recently I watched the film Becket, the story of St. Thomas a Becket, Chancellor of England later also made Archbishop of Canterbury by King Henry II (1133-1189).

Rosary Crusade for Purification of the Church - Won't You Join?

I received the email below and urge readers to take action on it. The rosary has many times brought about miraculous help. It has prevented wars, brought about victories in battle, protected a group of priests from the effects of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, saved Portugal and Austria, from Communism. The miracles go on and on. So if you aren't praying the rosary, why not? This is a great opportunity to respond to Our Lady and help our country. Won't you join?

British Journalist Says "Paris Isn't Paris Anymore"

Are you going on a European vacation making the rounds to London, Paris and Rome? If so, think again about Paris. The last time I was in Paris it was PARIS with French language, French people, French food, French culture. But Paris isn't like that anymore. It's unsafe, filthy, dangerous and most people living there don't speak French.

My personal suggestion is this: don't go to Europe unless it's Poland, Hungary or Czechoslovakia - the three Eastern European countries not taking in migrants and as a result are therefore still safe. If you opt out of choosing Europe, go to Central or South America. Antigua, Guatemala and Quito, Ecuador are safe and economical with great food and friendly people. There are no terrorist attacks and no frightening mugging-type bracelet scams (shown in the video below). 

Be aware that Europe is changing into a third world continent. Do not assume that bringing unlimited numbers into Europe means that within a few years the migrants will be good Europeans contributing to European culture and civilization. It hasn't worked out that way. Watch the video (Language warning!) and be wise. (This video is by The Iconoclast. His YouTube channel is HERE.)

Let Us Seek the Truth Like the Wise Men of Old!

Adoration of the Magi, Albrecht Durer 1504
Meditating on the Magi is a humbling experience. Think of the immensity of their project. It was over a thousand miles from their home in Persia to Bethlehem. As pagans, what did they know about the coming Messiah? They must have been great seekers of truth. And so they received a call from truth Himself. How else could they have the courage to even take the first step.

Ann Lieven - "I Took A Gender Studies Course So You Don't Have To"

This short video on what conservative students at public universities have to put up with has over a million views. Ann Lieven attends the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She says, "I bought into this for about five minutes and they were the stupidest of my entire life."

Europe is the First Continent Paying for its Own Colonization

Perhaps if Europe had not aborted all her children for the past 50 years there would not have been need for the Great Replacement.

Perhaps if Europe had stood by her Christian heritage, Islam now would not be replacing Christianity.

Perhaps if Europeans had not fallen for liberalism, the European continent would be filled with Christian soldiers of the Church Militant.

But since now it is what it is - liberal, Left and weak - if Europe is to survive in the future as Christian Europe she must stop living the foggy ideology of the Left and listen to what is called REALITY. The consequences of Leftist ideology have risen to dangerous results where, in order to survive, Europe must do one of two things: give up and submit to Islam or fight a war to save themselves from the invasion of their homelands. There is no other path.

This Is What Happens When You Open Your Borders to Barbarians!

Where's Pope Leo when
we need him?
2017 was a big year for the barbarian invasions.
France Goes Up in Flames as Thugs Burn Cars and Beat Up Cops
Violence so bad in Germany the last two New Year's eves they provided "safe zones" for women.
Knife Attacks up in U.K. - 37,000 in 2017; Four Killed in New Year's Celebrations
Knife attacks ravage German victims following migrant surge
Really, IS the new barbarian invasion and where is our Pope St. Leo the Great to turn back the modern Huns and Vandals? (And the heretics.)

Pope Francis will no doubt say anyone speaking out against this is a racist driven by fear of anyone different. And so would the Peace Justice, and Human Development Committee of the USCCB with their recent idiotic racist examination of conscience. I don't doubt their description of it as "inspired by Pope Francis." It begged for satire in the fashion of "You might be a redneck if...." Maybe I'll do that in my next blog post. We can all use a little laugh these days.

The Bishops of Kazakhstan Boldly Address Confusion on Marriage Created by Pope Francis

The Three Hero Bishops of Kazakhstan
"According to the doctrine of the Church, only the sacramental matrimonial bond constitutes a domestic church (see Second Vatican Council, Lumen Gentium, 11). The admission of so-called 'divorced and remarried' faithful to Holy Communion, which is the highest expression of the unity of Christ the Spouse with His Church, means in practice a way of approving or legitimizing divorce, and in this meaning a kind of introduction of divorce in the life of the Church. 

Mainstreaming Delusion

The following discussion comes from a homosexual news site which cannot be linked because it's basically pornography, however to make sure you know it's OK that I read this delusional rubbish, Sister Simone Campbell and her NETWORK cabal have their weekly updates emailed to me from this website along with other delusional news of the latest most up-to-date homosexual and transgender awe-inspiring world accomplishments.  

That being said, I was intrigued (appalled? disgusted? had my mind blown away by?) a homosexual millennial blogger on this news site who states that he's done with meaningless hookups thanks to millennial homosexual peers who have ruined them. Every time I've hooked up with someone, I'm left with a fuzzy feeling of discontent. Thoughts run through my mind that I've let my body be used. The danger of hooking up with someone is that you risk feeling awful afterwards.

...and Muhammad is Lucifer's Prophet

Lucifer masquerading as "Gabriel"
appearing to Muhammad on Mt Hira
2 Corinthians 11:13-15
13 For such false apostles are deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder: for Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great surprise if Satan's servants masquerade as servants of righteousness.

NIV - masquerades as an angel of light

CIB - Even Satan changes himself to look like an angel of light
