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?

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.

Beijing Accelerating Timeline for Possible Invasion of Taiwan, Expert Warns

"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.

The Passion of Christ as Told by Surgeon Pierre Barbet

Every Good Friday my husband and I read Dr. Barbet's description of the passion from A Doctor at Calvary. The meditation is based on his expertise as a surgeon and a student of the Shroud of Turin. It's not too late to enter into this moving description of Jesus' sufferings. You can find it here and you will never look at the crucifix in the same way. 

Lord Jesus, our crucified Savior, have mercy on us. 

Redeemer of the world, have mercy on us.

Bishop Athanasius Schneider on "Abortion-tainted" Vaccines

Editor's Note: We have few prophetic voices in the hierarchy today. Many of our shepherds clearly speak with forked tongues leading the flock astray. But others drift along in the easy flow of the bloody current, perhaps from laziness or influenced by their brethren or out of human respect. One bishop, however, always speaks with such clarity and simplicity that you hear the echo of Christ's words -- "But let your speech be yea, yea: no, no: and that which is over and above these, is of evil." (Matt 5:37). On this Good Friday, when the murder of the Innocent One looms before us, let us listen to a voice defending all the millions of little innocent ones crucified by abortion. Will you cooperate in their murders?

"The blood of murdered unborn children cries to God from abortion-tainted vaccines and medicines."

By Msgr. Athanasius Schneider, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Saint Mary in Astana

Fr. Tom Collins Weighs in on Treatment of the Wuhan Virus with Evidence about the Effectiveness of Ivermectin

Editor's comment: I started showing symptoms of the Wuhan virus on March 1st and went to the emergency room on March 2nd after a nurse friend suggested I needed to get lab work and a chest X-ray. All the tests were normal, but the ER called the next day to say the Covid test was positive and I should "tough it out." 

Spy Wednesday: A Reflection from the Past

I'm trying to spend more time in prayer and meditation this week rather than hours on the computer. So I'm linking to a post I did two years ago on Spy Wednesday instead of composing something new.

Spy Wednesday: Did Jesus Love Judas?

 Besides there is "nothing new under the sun" and every minute is "now" with the Lord. This Spy Wednesday takes us on a time machine to all the Spy Wednesdays of the past when we reflect on all our personal betrayals. Let us pray many Acts of Contrition today. I pray that you are having a blessed Holy Week. It's not too late to fertilize the final days of Lent with prayer, sacrifice and meditation for a spiritual growth spurt. My Jesus, I trust in You. Mary, Mother of the Savior, pray for us.

Tuesday of Holy Week: The Rising Conflict

The five wise virgins remind us to be prepared. Are you ready for Easter?

On Monday of Holy Week Jesus made His authority very clear, not only over nature by cursing the fig tree, but over the Temple. Now on Tuesday, He returns with the apostles to the temple precincts and engages in teaching and dispute with the chief priests, pharisees, and elders. They demand to know by what authority He acts? He responds by asking them a question. "If you give me an answer, I will tell you on what authority I do the things I do. Tell me, was John's baptism of divine origin or merely from men?"

Have you done the research? Do you really want to get that jab? Reputable Doctors are blowing the warning trumpet! READ THE ARTICLE!

It’s ‘entirely possible’ vaccine campaigns ‘will be used for massive-scale depopulation’: Former Pfizer VP

'PLEASE warn every person not to go near top up vaccines. There is absolutely no need to them...If someone wished to harm or kill a significant proportion of the world’s population over the next few years, the systems being put in place right now will enable it. It’s my considered view that it is entirely possible that this will be used for massive-scale depopulation', Dr Mike Yeadon told the American Frontline Doctors

Monday of Holy Week! And So Many Churches are Still Closed

Holy Week Monday: It begins. The repentant woman anoints Jesus

The linked title is the post I wrote last year on Monday of Holy Week when the Mass had almost disappeared from the earth except for a few people who were able to attend video Masses in person. This year many are still being denied the Mass
I check out the Vox Cantoris website almost every day and those poor Canadian Catholics are still out in the cold in most places.

Topsy and Tuptim Take a Break from Fratelli Tutti to Talk about Living in the Twilight Zone

Tuptim is helping Topsy work on her Spring garden cleanup. They rake and weed and begin to set the hardy pansies in the circle garden out front. 

Topsy: [brushing her hair back from her forehead with her forearm...] Whew, it's getting warm. You know when I lived in the city, gardening was a snap. We had a quarter of an acre and I had a few little areas: my Mary garden, my lily garden, a small vegetable garden. Here [makes sweeping gesture with her arm...] gardening is a black hole. If I ever win the lottery, I'm hiring a full time gardener.

Tuptim: [Laughing....] Only one problem....You have to buy tickets.

Everything You Never Wanted to Know about Exorcism and the Demons!

[N.B. Don't be intimidated by the length of the video. Father's presentation is only about 30 minutes followed by a Q. and A. One of the first things in warfare is to know the enemy. When you know his strategies for attack, you are better able to prepare and ward off his onslaught. Hat tip to Janet at Restore D.C. Catholicism for alerting me to this video. It's worth every minute!] 

Most of us don't spend much time thinking about the war going on around us every day, but it's real. We can't see the spiritual battlefield and the protagonists locked in deadly conflict so we don't think about it.

Chinese Water Torture: Topsy and Tuptim Discuss Chapter VI of Fratelli Tutti

Topsy and Tuptim pack a lunch and snacks and meet at the playground with seven of their grandchildren who immediately disperse on the playground. The bigger kids grab the soccer ball and run out on the field. 

Topsy: I love this playground and it's so healthy to get the kids away from all the electronics and outside. They can climb all over the equipment or run up and down the field and everyone's in plain sight. [Calling to the eleven year old...] Keep an eye on your little brothers, honey. Send them to me if you have any problems. [ Her granddaughter waves and takes the boys to the swings.]

Kristi Noem Caves on Protecting Girls and Women in Sports: Her Star is Falling!

Well...I watched Kristi Noem on Tucker the other night with my husband. As she blathered on about her "legal experts" my husband's response was, "This is baloney!" I can think of another B-word description but my mom taught me to be a lady so I won't write it, and I'll try not to think it. But I agreed with Larry. It was a politician defending her betrayal with high sounding "baloney." She will have a lot to do to restore her reputation with serious conservatives...if that is even possible. Instead of being a rising star in the GOP, we may be watching the burnout of a fallen star.

The Covid Deception: Be Your Own Health Advocate!

I received the email and articles below from my friend at LifeTree, Elizabeth Wickham. I think it's important for everyone to be their own health advocate. With regard to treatments, I personally experienced the assistance of the Frontline Doctors when I contracted the virus. I believe their assistance and prescription for Ivermectin were an important component in my recovery. Covid is a serious illness but it is no more a death sentence than other virulent viruses.

Topsy and Tuptim Examine Fratelli Tutti Politics in Chapter V

It's a chilly, rainy day so Topsy and Tuptim decide to meet at the coffee shop to discuss Chapter V of Fratelli Tutti where it's warm and cheerful. [See Ch. I, Ch. II, Ch. III, Ch. IV] They choose a table by the window where they can watch the rain splashing on the glass making little rivulets down the panes. The sidewalk outside is almost empty with an occasional passer by huddled under an umbrella warding off the downpour.

The Power of Storytelling to Mainstream Hatred and Fuel a "Grievance Industry"

Temptation of Eve by Pierre Jean van der Ouderaa 1841-1915

Storytelling represents one of the most powerful mediums for transmitting both the truth and the lie. Jesus used parables to illustrate powerful truths about the two great Commandments, love of God and love of neighbor.  But demons are powerful storytellers as well. Look at Satan's success in seducing Eve with his forked tongue and poisonous lies in the garden.

Topsy and Tuptim Meet at the D.C. Border Wall to Discuss Chapter 4 of Tutti Frutti

Topsy and Tuptim get off the metro at Union Station and walk toward the Capitol. They each have a grocery bag filled with snacks and gift cards to share with the homeless and the National Guard. 

Tuptim: You know, Topsy, I'm not sure this was such a good idea. The Capitol has turned into a war zone.

On the cusp of persecution, it is good to remember the history of dear Ireland.

Persecution is in the air. The so-called equality act will result in targeting every religious group in the country except those that now worship the world instead of God. We've already seen the persecution resulting from draconian regulations over the China virus. It's just the beginning if the godless elitists in Washington have their way.

Blaspheming Our Blessed Mother counts as "preaching the Bible" for protestants

"Doing good" means killing Catholics.
Catholic Truth always wins any debate so even if we're not the most erudite person on earth, we know we'll win with God's Truth, however weak the instrument we are that He uses. 

Below in this post you'll see that after 500 years Protestants still blaspheme Our Blessed Mother, despise the pope, say the Catholic Church is Satanic and viciously hate Catholics because they think we're devil worshippers and idolaters (Francis' Pachamama stunt did not endear protestants to the Church). And that's not all. Remember the French Revolution? The Spanish Civil War? The Mexican anti-Cristero War? Mao, Lenin, Pol Pot, Stalin, Hitler, Islam, ISIS, Freemasons. That's just the past 250 years. 

Taking all that into account, the Catholic Church decided to make itself more likeable, happier, nicer yet still retain its meaningfulness by having women dancing with flowing scarves in liturgies filled with laughing and clapping. So happy! Happy Catholics. 

Casting aside their priestly role, priests became practically clueless as to what they were priests FOR because they thought if they didn't talk about sin and death or faith and morals, they'd be more likeable and other people would not want to kill them or us. Wrong!

Did the Church think that after Vatican II, with all the people and priests being so nice and happy, that the rest of the world would accept us and not want to kill us anymore? If so, that plan did not work. They still hate the Catholic Church and still want to rid the world of Catholics so all that happy niceness of the past 60 post-Vatican II years did nothing but horribly weaken the Church.

The following is an exchange I had on a Frontpage Mag article, Catholic Leaders Betray Mary's Honor for Muhammad's Approval, with anti-Catholic protestants. (Note: I did not change anyone's grammar or spelling.) 

Thought for the Day: Walk in the Light!

The face of a woman devoted to ignorance and
blindness. The truth is not in her!
What does it mean to walk in the light? Think of how light illuminates. You see shadows on a dark night and interpret them to be two men stalking you. When you move into the light you see your fears were groundless. What you "saw" was simply an optical illusion created by two lampposts. 

All of us "see through a glass darkly" because of sin. We can choose to remain in the dark or move toward the light. The more we move into the light of Christ, the more clearly we see the truth about the world around us. And the first requirement for living in the truth is to see the truth.

Topsy and Tuptim Meet at the Apple House after a Long Hiatus to Discuss Chapter 3 of Fratelli Tutti!

[Part I and Part II

Topsy looks flustered as she comes into the Apple House and sees Tuptim sitting at a table drinking coffee. 

Tuptim: (Putting down her cup and tapping her watch) Hey, Lady, where have you been?

Topsy: (apologetically) Traffic on 81 was terrible -- another truck problem...a jackknifed semi at the first Strasburg exit. Fortunately I wasn't too far from the exit, but it still took twenty minutes to go a quarter of a mile. Sheesh! It seems to happen at least once a week on that highway.

Tuptim: Oh gosh! That's so frustrating.

The On-Going Saga of BLM/ANTIFA: It's Communism on Steroids!

Bet you weren't aware that violent protests continue in Portland. The locals are certainly aware and they've had it! But for the rest of liberal loony land -- who cares about those racist, white privileged supremacists. Let their city burn!

Ho-hum! Riots have become such a regular event, why bother covering it any more? After all, the BLM/Antifa activists are peace loving patriots. They just set fire to buildings to keep warm and destroy and loot property to help the poor. Yeah, really, destroying poor neighborhoods and driving out businesses so the locals have nowhere to shop.

The Loss of the Liberal Mind! Pray Mother Teresa's Emergency Novena for the Salvation of Liberals!

I have a number of liberal relatives who have Trump derangement syndrome as well as an appalling lack of reason and common sense. One of them made a statement on Facebook yesterday saying if he died, he'd be glad it happened under Biden and not Trump, "the most unAmerican president in my lifetime."

Wow! Really? You care about who's president when you die? I think it would be a lot smarter to care about the Supreme Judge whom you'll meet at the moment of death. As a matter of fact, I was so appalled at his statement that I immediately prayed Mother Teresa's emergency novena for him, because I think he's in serious spiritual danger.

The Passion and Cross Come Before the Glory! Let Us Embrace Our Suffering These Last Few Weeks of Lent.

We all have suffering; there's no getting around it. Scratch the surface of even the most privileged life and you find a sort of chaos. Swirling around amongst the privileged fun and games is pain -- whether it's illness, broken relationships, jealousies, etc. And when the suffering comes it's easy to whine and complain and beg for relief.

The Story of the Black Lace Mantilla

St Biagio (Blaise), Maranello, Italy
This is a trip down memory lane that will probably not interest many of you but I'll tell the story since it shows that God provides for us even in the tiniest detail of our lives. 

Many decades ago when I was a protestant teenager I lived in Italy while going to school in Padua and Venice. The people I stayed with, Carlo and Ann, were friends of my parents from Florida. Ann was from Tampa and had met Carlo at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee. They married, lived and worked in Orlando a few years, then went to Italy where Carlo had received a research grant at the University of Padua. I was a teenager and less than happy with my school so my parents arranged for me to go to university in Italy and stay with Carlo and Ann. It was a glorious time although if I had been Catholic then I might have gleaned more from the experience. However, I look back and see how God has his hand in the course of our lives, sometimes even in the tiniest details. This is the story of the Black Lace Mantilla.

THIS was the Ciborium, then they threw it in the trash.

This paper plate bowl was used as a Ciborium. Hosts were consecrated in it and Holy Communion distributed from it, then after Mass it was thrown in the garbage. Horrified, I fished it out of the trash and the next day took it to my pastor to burn, along with the bag and tissue paper I had put it in. THIS is what leftist liberal modernist priests do - those who no longer believe in the Real Presence, if they ever did at all, that is. THIS sacrilege and utterly disgusting actions of an out-of-state priest have sent me flying into the arms of the SSPX in order to escape the horror of having to see Christ treated in such a degrading and shameful manner. The Mass was not celebrated in a diocesan church, or any church at all, nevertheless, my pastor, to whom I supplied all the pertinent information, has said that he will report it to the bishop. So we shall see. I did speak to the errant priest about this, although I did not tell him I had taken the "Ciborium" out of the trash.

And All Those Deaths from the Wuhan Virus? Many Were Faked - Hospitals Were Paid Extra for Reporting Deaths from Coronavirus!

According to the CDC itself (who've been lying to us since the start of the "pandemic,") many deaths attributed to the Wuhan virus were actually from heart attacks, pneumonia, cancer, etc. Among patients described as "corona deaths" were those already in hospice care dying from a terminal disease. But hospitals, under the CARES ACT, were paid a 20% bonus for all so-called covid deaths, over 130,000 due to other causes.

Tuesday Takeaway: A Must Read Article on the Red Rose Rescues!

If you aren't familiar with the Red Rose Rescues, here's a great article by Monica Miller to bring you up to speed. 

Risking Arrest to Defend the Unborn

As a long time rescuer who was among those doing low number "sit-ins" back in the 1970s, continuing with the mega rescues through Operation Rescue in the 1980s, going to jail with the Spring of Life in Buffalo in 1992, and now participating in the 21st century Red Rose Rescues, I have a question for you.

Monday Morning Meanderings....It's Snowing Again!

  • Coming back from Florida makes the cold seem colder, and I
  • loved my short getaway in the Sunshine State visiting my blog partner Susan. But I could never move to Florida; I love the changing seasons too much. Right now it's snowing again and is so beautiful. The birds are busy at the feeders. The cardinals in the snowy branches of the trees paint a splash of color against the gray day and the white snow. (My son in Texas probably wants to wash my mouth out with soap about now, although he posted on Facebook that they needed to use the air conditioner in the car today. Go figure!) I can admire the lovely snowfall this morning because the temperatures are on the rise and it's supposed to change to rain with sunshine later in the day. By Wednesday the thermostat prediction is the 60s. February is definitely a changeling!

Prayers and Help for Texas! One Organization that's Johnny-on-the-Spot is Mercy Chefs.

My son lives in a northern suburb of Austin, TX. We just talked to him tonight and he is doing better than many in the state. Things are getting back to normal for them despite living through what my son described as "the worst week of my life." They had no heat (ran out of propane), so he, his wife, and six kids still at home hunkered down in the parents' bedroom with an intermittently working space heater subject to the rolling blackouts. With the house down to 50 degrees or so, they bundled up and ate soup made in the crockpot while the electricity was on.

And You Thought AOC was Good for Nothing!

Ocasio-Cortez Calls For ‘Full Investigation’ Into Cuomo Nursing Home Scandal, Backs Calls To Strip Gov Of Emergency Powers

It's here! The time has come! After attempting to eat up Donald Trump with character assassination, hoaxes, and an illegitimate election, the left has moved on. The new menu item is one of their own, Andrew Cuomo. He is no doubt just the appetizer. And it couldn't happen to a more deserving and repulsive Catholic leftist (except perhaps Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi). Is that Cuomo in the hands of Saturn? Goya depicted the evil left when he painted Saturn Eating His Son. In Roman mythology the god, in fact, ate five of his six sons the minute they were born fearing the threat to his power. (Sound familiar?)

The Wretched State of a Troll's Mind

Questions: Who would ever say anything nasty about the nice Mr Beekman and Mrs Beekman? Why would anyone think these two upstanding figures were evil?

Answers: A troll, of course! Because a troll's wretched soul-dead state of mind is morally bankrupt. 

Definition of an internet troll with thanks to Evangeline and her comment at Restore-DC-Catholicism:

I used to tell children, there is no such thing as zombies. I was wrong. The soul-dead ghouls who haunt comboxes to delight in tormenting others are examples of people who are so soulless as to do the devil's work. Never in times past were we afflicted with such living demons, who enjoyed throwing salt in wounds for no reason at all. When it gives people pleasure to hurt others they don't know because they can, clearly you are dealing with demonic forces and sick, emotionally bankrupt people.

Another Treatment for the Wuhan Virus -- and this one is cheap and easily available!

Virologists Report Poor Man’s Amino Acid Cure For Covid-19 Would Abolish Need For Vaccines

"According to the virologists who were interviewed by this reporter, over 1000 patients have now been successfully treated with surprisingly rapid dissolution of symptoms and return to health. Even severely infected COVID-19 patients have been able to come off the ventilator with lysine therapy, say doctors."

King of the Swamp

I'm now know...thing
King of the Swamp

with apologies to Roger Miller

President for sale or rent
Lobbying for fifty cents
Soon no phone, no pool, no pets,
We won’t even have cigarettes
Ah, but two hours of lobbying
Buys a heap of real Communism 
He’s a man of means, by no means
He’s King of the Swamp 

Third world midnight coup
Destination: Covid flu
He’s an old worn out suit and shoes 
Swimming naked in infested fescue
He makes Chinese deals, we have found 
Gathering his millions underground
He’s a holy and devout Cath-o-lic
While we're all evil deplorable hicks
He’s King of the Swamp

He knows every flunkie – they’re all the same
He knows all of the children and all of their names
He knows every handout in every town
And every lock that ain't locked down 
He can't stand fences except his own
Like the one around Capitol's military zone
He’s King of the Swamp

It's Ash Wednesday. Do You know Where Your Ashes Are?

 We do.

Topsy says, "No flour sifter shaking ashes into my hair!"

Tuptim says, "No drawing on my face with Q-tips.

There were two priests distributing ashes. We would have liked to have had them placed on our foreheads by the priest who drew beautiful great black crosses on each person's forehead but at least the priests were TOUCHING the people with their own thumb and not Q-tips. There were no rubber gloves, no masks, no Q-tips, no social distancing, no ashes sprinkled in anyone's hair and, thankfully, no silly Repertoire of Safety rules. There was holy water, reverence, respect for Our Lord both by the people and the priests and there were 10 (?) altar BOYS.

The 1962 Roman Catholic Daily Missal states: Ashes are blessed by four ancient prayers, sprinkled with holy water and incensed, and then placed in the form of a cross on the foreheads of each of the faithful with the words: "Remember, man, that thou art dust, and unto dust thou shalt return.

Note the words "ON THE FOREHEADS". It's becoming ridiculous that the customs of other cultures are to be respected (Pachamama) while our customs more and more are to be ignored.

What’s with the Weather?

 Is it just a coincidence that one of the worst winter storms in U.S. history is taking taking place within days of what looks to be the worst administration ever occupying the White House?  75% of the country is covered in snow and ice. Oregon’s ice storm left about 330,000 people without electricity, the worst blackout in the state’s history.

Remember, Alligator, That Thou Art Dust...

Really!? A Q-tip?
Topsy and Tuptim have escaped snow and ice in the north to enjoy a Winter holiday at a Florida wildlife preserve. Neither of them sleeps very well in a hotel and are bemoaning the bad dreams they had last night.

Topsy: I had such bad dreams last night and got so little sleep and had a terrible nightmare. I kept waking up screaming, "No God! No!! No-o-o. Pleeeease!" ...Didn't you hear me?

Tuptim: That was you? I thought it was me. I had nightmares too. What was your dream?

Topsy: I was following an alligator into his underwater den. Then everything got really crazy. It looked like an ugly modernist chapel.

Tuptim: Oh my gosh! That was my dream too except I was being chased by the alligator!

Topsy: Did you end up in a chapel? 

Tuptim: Yes!

Topsy: What did it look like?

Tuptim: I couldn't figure out whether I was in Orlando or LA. It reminded me of the West Coast Religious Ed Conference with a table and dancing girls and everything was purple! It was Ash Wednesday and it was so weird.

Topsy: And Cardinal Cupich was the celebrant? (Tuptim nods vigorously.)

Tuptim: And Father James Martin was the Master of Ceremonies. He was wearing a purple chasuble... 

You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet! Election Integrity is Obsolete...

 ...and the assault on Texas is in high gear. Bring on all those undocumented Democrats! “Y’all come on in!” And if you bring the Wuhan virus with you all the better to kill off some of those deplorable Texas conservatives.

Sunday Meditation: Are You Ready for Lent?

 Lent begins on Wednesday. Am I ready? I’m reading a chapter from the Imitation of Christ every morning and it’s humbling to find how often it is acutely relevant to the season. This morning I read: “I will speak to You, Lord Jesus, ‘though I am but dust and ashes (Gen 18:27),.’ If I think myself any better, You stand opposed to me, and what is more, my own sins bear witness against me. This evidence I cannot deny. But if I humble myself, admit my insignificance, rid myself of all self-esteem, and regard myself as the mere dust that I am, then Your grace will come to me and the light of Your understanding enter into my heart; so that, through perfect knowledge of my wretchedness, all self-esteem will be lost in the depths of my nothingness.”

Wow! How appropriate as I prepare to begin the Lenten journey!

What a message to a person living in a culture where self-esteem is an idol, where everyone expects a trophy for participation and an A+ for writing his name at the top of the test. What a reality check!

Before God we are nothing.....but then — HE DIED OUT OF LOVE FOR US!

When I think of my sins, especially those of ingratitude and presumption, I want to call on the mountains to fall on me and hide me (Luke 23:30) like Adam hiding in the garden after he sinned. How can I sin against God Who loves me so much? How can I not run to Him and fall on my knees in awe and gratitude?

So how will I begin this Lent? Trying to see myself in the light of Christ? 

Who are You, Lord? And who am I as I kneel before you? In fear and trembling I beg You to show me the state of my soul that I might repent of every sin and fault and be transformed by your grace. Help me get ready to make Lent in a way that opens the door of my heart to let You in. 

My Jesus I trust in You!

Extremist Rhetoric from the Left is Way Out of Hand!

 Really? The protest at the Capitol was like Pearl Harbor? Wow! Kamakaze fighters, the Arizona sunk with tremendous loss of life! My Dad was there. What an insult to the Great Generation for the Senate snowflakes to dare compare a mob with flags and backpacks for weapons to what my dad and went through in World War II. 

Really? The protest at the Capitol was like 9/11? What an insult to the victims, the first responders and the  patriots who protected the Capitol from flight 93 when they decided to “roll” against the hijackers.

Really? The protest at the Capitol was like the Rwandan genocide when over a million Tutsis and moderate Hutus were slaughtered, many with machetes, while the government called them deplorables cockroaches? What a racist statement to compare the skedaddle of mostly white legislators to the massacre of millions of black Africans. Just goes to show who the real racists are. 

And now a journalist for the Atlantic says covering Trump was like storming Omaha Beach! 


Alexander Nazaryan needs a brain transplant. Let’s make the guy sit down and watch some of the footage of Omaha Beach with soldiers under fire and the water red with blood. About 2500 died that day and several hundred thousand died in the Normandy invasion. 

Don’t you just want to tell these people to stuff a sock in their mouths? 

All of these comparison should make any American with even a little knowledge of history want to vomit.    As for those who lost loved ones in these events, I can’t imagine how this makes them feel.

By the way, let’s remember that the five people who died at the Capitol on January 6th were ALL Trump supporters. As for AOC, we all know the poor little thing nearly died of fright even though she was nowhere near the Capitol, but isn’t she cute when she fakes being scared?

A Wall Is An Immorality....Unless It's Nancy's Wall

And just think how much safer AOC feels now that she's protected by the wall. She won't have to hide in the bathroom any more. She's protected by razor wire and the National Guard.

Email to my pastor - The NON TANGERE of Ash Wednesday

Someone forgot that touching is forbidden.
Dear Father,
Supposedly it isn't your fault that you cannot touch our foreheads with ashes but that of Bergoglio the Jesuit, Bishop Noonan and other left leaning Marxist bishops all of whom dispense blasphemous dictates to Catholics across the world as if we are all stupid.

Ashes in our hair is the most stupid thing yet. Possibly the Vatican should pass out salt and pepper shakers to all parishes in the world for Ash Wednesday - the day Catholics are to have a Cross of ashes on our forehead which is a witness to the world ALL DAY LONG so that every person we interact with during the day can SEE the Cross and know that we believe in God. Plus, with salt and pepper shakers, priests, deacons and whoever else is dispensing ashes on top of our heads in our hair wouldn't have to dirty their hands with actual ashes at all. Holy Ash Hair Shakers could be manufactured then sold in Catholic religious articles shops across the world. Just think of the millions, possibly billions, the Vatican could make on this one. Holy Water and Holy Water bottles out, Holy Ash Hair Shakers in.
