|Can you wait a few minutes before|
enjoying your adult beverage?
In order to be in the world, but not of the world, Catholics are able to navigate through the secularist expectations by practicing vigilant fasting. So many of these celebrations offer an abundance of delicious foods and beverages. Thus a Catholic can do little acts of penance by postponing
Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano is a hero, a warrior, disciple, and friend, who knows how to truly love his enemies.
I want to begin by clarifying the difference between modesty, privacy, and secrecy.
Modesty requires us to not reveal in public the parts of our bodies and our behavior that is not meant to be disclosed. Nudity, for example. Sexy revealing attire worn to attract lustful attention. Kissing. Fawning a lover’s shoulder or neck. Vulgar dancing.

|Lighting the first candle...|
First thing I'm doing is putting out my advent wreath officially. We'll bless the wreath and light the first candle casting light on a new year filled with anticipation and hope.

About time these tyrants had a setback!Supreme Court Backs Religious Challenge Against NY’s Cuomo
In a 5-4 ruling late Wednesday night, the Supreme Court backed a religious challenge to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s restrictions limiting attendance at religious services. The majority ruling blocks enforcement of the restrictions while the applicants pursue appellate review. The ruling highlights the lack of evidence that the applicants — the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn, two Jewish synagogues, and an Orthodox Jewish organization — have contributed to the spread of the virus and questions the rationale of the specifics of Cuomo’s restrictions, which limited services to just 10 and 25 occupants for red and orange zones, respectively.....

I certainly sympathize with those caught in the melee, but at the same time it indicated that things are more normal than we thought was possible in this year of Wuhan panic.
The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is typically the busiest travel day of the year with people on the road to get to family feasts where they will bow their heads TOGETHER WITH LOVED ONES and give thanks to God.

Many millennials and other young people (and even some oldsters) have embraced the Gramscian Revolution under the title of socialism without even knowing who Antonio Gramsci was. In a nutshell, Gramsci was a Marxist who believed that the goal of Communism would never be achieved in the West by inspiring violent worker uprisings like the 1917 Bolshevik revolt. Rather than politics, he thought Communist principles could be advanced most effectively by a slow march through the institutions. Infiltrate schools, the media, the entertainment industry, and even the churches, and you could change the thinking and values of the masses, destroy capitalism, and replace God with government.

Get ready for this everywhere if Biden is sworn in. Any time conservatives push back against the liberal agenda, the thugs will be there in masks carrying baseball bats. Unfortunately, once the violence begins, both sides engage. There are plenty of examples in history of manipulation of disturbed people to create incidents that justify draconian crackdowns.

I'm looking at search engines to see which I want to use as my default. I hate Google. Whenever I search I'm deluged with all the liberal outlets: NY Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, etc. If I want a conservative opinion, I often have to type in a specific outlet. I decided to compare what I would get from various search engines if I typed in "election fraud." Here are the first six results from the five search engines I looked at: Google, Bing, Dogpile, Yahoo, and DuckDuckGo. I looked at a lot more than the first six entries. As a result of this, my go-to search engines will be Dogpile and DuckDuckGo. Good-bye, Google and Yahoo. I was never a Bing user and I never will be after looking at their results.

Does the media want more rioting? A civil war? Of course they do. They want their orchestrated civil war because it will fit their narrative of destroying our country so that the Great Reset can begin but President Trump and 75 million Deplorables are in their way. In this satirical video JP Sears actually gives a very clear analysis of what the media is doing.

Editor's Comment: Yesterday I posted Part 1 of a sad story involving EWTN and my friend and colleague, Dexter Duggan. Calumny and slander, when involving slight issues, are venial sins. However, calumny that does significant damage to a person or institution is a mortal sin. Justice requires rectitude.
Dr. Hitchcock damaged, not only Dexter's reputation, but The Wanderer's. EWTN magnified and spread the error - inadvertently ...at first.

There's plenty of evidence of fraud in the presidential election and, despite the corrupt mainstream media and the corrupt USCCB (Get out the barf bag!) declaring election victory for Biden, neither of those pathetic groups certify elections.

And keep in mind that masking is especially dangerous to children:

If you don't have time to watch the video, let me give you a brief synopsis. A Catholic mom of eleven from a farming family in Kansas City, MO goes to Mass with her children. Several of them are special needs (not sure how many were with her, but one autistic daughter, Mary, was.) They have not been masking in their community and have had no issues. Until this outrageous event!

Archbishop Vigano has a message for all of us in the United States. It's time for intense prayer not for discouragement or for fear. Tell your beads tonight and have faith in God. Whatever happens, the gates of hell will never prevail against the God's truth. The integrity of the vote is in serious question. Many states took a three hour "pause" on election night and stopped counting the votes. Why? Were they looking for all those Biden ballots in the back room?
What sad times we live in when Catholic clergy are the source of so much confusion -- from the pope on down! Yesterday I had a heart-breaking conversation with a young person whom I love dearly. It confirmed in my mind how much these rogue clergy have to answer for. They have abandoned our children in a forest of confusion. Instead of preaching the truth, they have waffled in cowardice.

|Have you thanked your |
guardian angel today?
We are not made for this world, which is why we are never satisfied with anything here. As St. Augustine says, "Our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee." I love St. Augustine's words so much that I turned them into a little poem/prayer.
And ever restless will they be
Until they rest in Thee.

He praises and helps to advance and spread intrinsic evils.
Bishop Robert Barron already had little credibility despite his media empire. But when he praised a book on prayer by Fr. James Martin, S.J. he placed himself squarely in the enemy's camp.
How many people understand "THE GREAT RESET?" I'm not sure I understand it myself, but I know that those who promote it can't be trusted, for example the United Nations and the World Economic Forum. And I'm doing research to try to understand better what the world's elites are planning for us.

During the next week, you can free a soul from Purgatory every day by gaining a plenary indulgence. Visit and pray in a cemetery and meet the other regular requirements (praying for the traditional intentions of the Holy Father, receive Communion and go to Confession within a week, and be detached from all sin including venial sin, which is the really hard part.) Just think of the crowd that will be praying you out of Purgatory if you make the effort to help souls now. You can read more about the norms for gaining indulgences by going to Catholic Culture. Pope Francis has extended the indulgence practice for All Saints and the Holy Souls for the entire month of November. What an opportunity to do acts of love and charity for the dead.
