They Gave the Last Full Measure! Pray for the Fallen Who Died in Service to God, Family, and Country.

My dad lost many of his classmates in the attack on Pearl Harbor. I thank God he wasn't on the Arizona or the only one of the ten children he and my mom reared would be the oldest, my brother Ray, who was in utero that day. May God have mercy on all those we remember today. I plan to visit a cemetery and say a Hail Mary at the graves of those who died in battle in any of our wars. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

Sunday Meditation: Imitation of Christ Book 3, Chapter 17

The Imitation of Christ by Thomas a Kempis was one of St. Therese of Liseux's favorite books of spiritual reading. She felt Christ's infinite love when she meditated on it. St. Ignatius of Loyola was said to have only one book in his room when he died -- again, The Imitation of Christ. The influence Thomas a Kempis had on Ignatius' development of the Spiritual Exercises is obvious to anyone who's made them. Reading a chapter a day (very short) offers sound nourishment for the soul.

Dr. Peter McCullough: "All Roads Lead to the Vaccine....Stakeholders Want a Needle in Every Arm!"

World-Renowned Academic Physician Blows Lid Off COVID Vaccines

Dr. Peter McCullough asks why stakeholders "want a needle in every arm?"

As I watched the video, it seemed to me that the vaccine is looking more and more to me like the "mark of the beast," and more and more prominent physicians are warning against it.

Will You Be Able to Withstand the Trial?

"Through Christ the eyes of our hearts are opened, and our weak and clouded understanding reaches up toward the light." 

                                        St. Clement, Letter to the Corinthians

We live in challenging times, but we are not the first. St. Clement was a pope and martyr. He's mentioned in the Roman Canon of the Mass and was the fourth to sit in Peter's chair. Murdered under the reign of Trajan, he was joined by tens of thousands of other Christians including St. Ignatius of Antioch who died about ten years later. The first century was, indeed, a bloody time and Trajan one of the most eager to persecute, even his own faithful lieutenants:

What's Your Strategy for De-Stressing? We All Need a Few in Addition to Prayer!

My favorite sleuth is Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot played by David Suchet!

Strange and stressful times we live in, eh? How do you de-stress amid crises, besides prayer, the sacraments, and spiritual reading? What’s your prescription for maintaining your equilibrium? When I need a respite, a total break from the bad news, I’d rather turn to a puzzle than the boob tube: jigsaw puzzles, crossword puzzles, logic puzzles, cryptograms, sudokus, mazes – brain exercises of all kinds. Instead of fanning the flames of anxiety with one more news report on the coronavirus, or the riots, or Pope Francis’ latest crazy statement, I brew a cup of tea and turn to a puzzle.

As a teenager, I read books every spare moment and particularly enjoyed murder mysteries. I think I read almost every mystery by Agatha Christie, Arthur Conan Doyle, Dorothy Sayers, Ellery Queen, and G.K. Chesterton. How I love Chesterton’s beloved little priest, Fr. Brown! His keen understanding of human nature and his kindness to all, even criminals, inspired me. Perhaps I like mysteries because they are so much like puzzles; although I’m never much of a sleuth. I’m more like Sherlock’s Watson, or Poirot’s Hastings, or the blockhead detectives schooled by Jane Marple.

Connect the Dots, Folks! Researchers Used Spike Proteins to Sterilize Mice......

Weaponizing Medicine During the COVID Pandemic

Governments have used vaccines in the past to sterilize women in third world countries. Nowadays we're all in the crosshairs of the population control crowd, people like Bill Gates and Anthony Fauci.

After the Great Reset We Will Own Nothing But Will be Happy?

The Great Reset sounds like global Communism
because it IS global Communism.

Muhammad, Knock, Knock, Knocking on Heaven's Door

(God's voice is in red, Satan's voice is in fuchsia, Dante's voice is in blue)

Knock, knock!

Who's there?

It's ME! Muhammad! 

Muhammad who? 

Muhammad the Prophet! (peace be upon me)

Silence ensues as God consults Himself then says, These are the Gates of Heaven. Go thee down that other path which thou hast walked whilst on earth. Knock there and Lucifer will let thee enter. 

Muhammad trots down to the Gates of Hell.

Knock, knock! 

Who the hell is there?!


Immediately the Gates of Hell spring open, then Lucifer says, Welcome, Muhammad. Well done, my good and faithful servant. Enter! All that I possess is yours. 

Oh hi, Allah, it's you! Great to see you again! Where're my 72 virgins!? 
Right this way. (heh heh)

Muhammad's excitement radiates through the air as the door to the Chamber of Virgins slides open. Tearing at his robe Muhammad races in...then disappears into the infinite realm of Inferno's Eighth Circle, to be mutilated and split in half with his entrails hanging out, eternally speaking the words: See now how I rend me!

Sunday Meditation: Pray for the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Our Country. We Need It!

Come, O Holy Spirit, and wake us up. Pour out all your gifts on each of us who desires wholeheartedly to know You, love You, and serve You. Confirm us in our baptismal promises this day and every day. Help us to "just say no" to all the deceits of Satan and his minions. Let us not return evil for evil, but imitate You who transforms evil into opportunities for good. Give us all of Your gifts that we might have the wisdom to know the truth, the understanding to interpret all things according to God's will, the courage and kindness to counsel gently, and the fortitude to persevere. Give us the grace to kneel humbly at the foot of the cross with our Mother Mary enfolding us in her mantle. Send our guardian angels to guide and rule us as servants and foot soldiers for You. May we never run away from the battle, but be faithful members of the Church Militant under our king, Jesus Christ, and his twelve star general, Our Lady.

Through Christ Our Lord.  Amen

Are Warren County Virginians the Smartest in the State? They're "Just Sayin' No!" to the Jab.

Editor's Note: A friend of mine sent this out to his email list. He summarizes the statistics in Warren County for the number taking the COVID experimental biological agent. Good for them! And two thumbs up to my friend for this common sense post! You can check out the Virginia data county by county here. I don't know if Warren is the lowest, but it is certainly among the lowest.

If You're Thinking about Taking the Moderna Jab, You Need to Read This!

The Health Ranger offers many videos on "vaccine" risks and other health news.

Do you know what's in the Moderna jab? Check out Lew Rockwell. Here's a bit:

It’s called SM-102.

Verifying that it is in the Moderna COVID vaccine, I find a 12/30/20 CDC document titled: “COVID-19 Vaccines: Update on Allergic Reactions, Contraindications, and Precautions.” [1]

Pastor Bill Hughes, You're on Your Own Now, Buddy

To Moongold: [Secretly I call her Moonbat.] Let's get a few things straight. Mary Ann and I are two different people. Les Femmes is Mary Ann Kreitzer's blog. She's the blog owner and administrator therefore as such has the power to see all comments and post them or not. She lives in Virginia. I live in Florida. I am a contributor on the blog and only am able to post articles, make comments, and correct my own documents.

To Everyone Else: This past week two people, "Moongold" and "Abe" commented on a post I did that is nearly 4 years old. "Abe's" comments were so vile that Mary Ann would not post them. I had had massive computer problems for 10 days which were so bad that I ended up buying a new computer and changing internet providers. Meanwhile I subsisted on my little Fire tablet as Mary Ann took on Moonbat Moongold. I made 2 short comments from my tablet, then the last longer one from the new computer.

When We Look at the World with Eyes of Faith...

I expect most of us remember the experience of being at an amusement park or County Fair and going through the "Fun House Hall of Mirrors." Suddenly you see a strange person in front of you. Then you realize it's you, a distorted and strange caricature of yourself.

On COVID: Treatment, Natural Immunity, Vaccine Hesitancy, Informed Consent, Vaccination Risks, Etc.

The debunking and ridicule of doctors who won't support the COVID party line continues. Those who support the off-label treatments with HCQ and Ivermectin are treated like quacks and what an uproar against those who suggest the "vaccine" is dangerous and, perhaps, even a bio-weapon that turns the bodies of the vaccinated into spike protein factories that can infect the non-vaccinated. Many medical people debunk this theory, but other equally accredited doctors support it.

What's going on? Who knows?

Sunday Meditation: If You Want to Be Happy for the Rest of Your Life......

O Lord, You made our hearts for Thee,

And ever restless will they be

Until they rest in Thee.

based on St. Augustine

The other day I wrote about happiness and the etymology of the word from Middle English meaning "luck, prosperity, and advantageous circumstances." That association can't hold up. Wealth and happiness are often mutually exclusive. How many rich people do you know or read about whose lives are a mess and families are miserable? Think of Hollywood, a glamorous hellhole filled with prosperous, unhappy people. A long-term marriage is rare, divorce and cohabitation the norm. How many wealthy people seek oblivion in drugs and alcohol. How many are addicted to sex and pornography? How many commit suicide?

Will the USCCB Encourage their Members to Bar Pro-abortion Catholic Politicians from Communion at their June Meeting?

Is Nancy Narnia's white witch?
Nancy Pelosi says she's pleased by the Vatican's statement to the U.S. bishops about reception of Holy Communion. According to Catholic Vote, "The document Pelosi was referring to told the U.S. bishops to discuss the matter among themselves, to avoid public controversy and division, and ultimately to leave the question between politicians and their local Catholic authorities." It also referred to past teaching on the issue and told the bishops that any statement shouldn't single out a specific group, but be in the context of worthiness for Communion in general. (See Canon 915)

Are You Happy? Are You Truly Happy? Why or Why Not?

Is Jeff Bezos, the richest man in the world, happy?

The Declaration of Independence says we have the unalienable right to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." We all want to be happy, don't we? Does anyone want to be sad and miserable? But what does it mean to be happy?

The word comes from Middle English and ironically it's linked to luck. Etymonline writes this about happy:

When Health Care is Politicized and Weaponized it Bodes Ill for America! Fight Back!

"A lie told once remains a lie, but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth."

                                            Joseph Goebbels

I'm reading an interesting article this morning from Hillsdale College's Imprimis. (By the way, if you never studied Latin, imprimis means "among the first things.") 

The article, Science, Politics and COVID: Will Truth Prevail? was authored by Scott Atlas, who worked on the Trump administration's Coronavirus Task Force until he was defamed and drummed out by the anti-science idealogues and their no-nothing media allies! The article is fascinating and I recommend reading it in full, but will give a synopsis. Here's part of his opening, putting the article in perspective:

Pandemic Panic? Take a deep breath and trust in God.

Editor's note: Below is the lead article from the Les Femmes newsletter's Spring Issue in 2020. It remains true as Joe Biden and Dr. Fauci continue to call for stupid measures like wearing masks outside and while exercising. It's like these snake oil salesmen want people to be sick and die. They have suppressed the best early treatments and their media accomplices have deplatformed board certified physicians who only want to help their patients. As many as 25% of Covid deaths were absolutely unnecessary. And many of those who survive the illness will face on-going medical problems post Covid because of the medical malpractice and negligence of those who suppressed the truth to promote the "vaccine" regimen. The Epoch Times has a great article on early treatment of Covid. The doctor interviewed was dumped by Twitter for telling people what every doctor knows. "that treating a viral illness within the first few days of symptoms can prevent it from establishing an infection." It's time to stop the panic and boost your immune system.

Of Mad Scientists and Evil Experiments Using Aborted Babies!

Human scalps grafted onto mice...

Did you ever read the short novel, The Island of Dr. Moreau by H.G. Wells? Written in 1896, it's one of the earliest examples of science fiction and tells the story of a shipwrecked Englishman, Edward Prendick, who is rescued by a ship carrying animals to an island inhabited by a mad scientist engaged in human/animal hybrid experimentation. It's chilling to say the least.

If You're Headed in the Wrong Direction, Yell, 'STOP THE TRAIN; I WANT TO GET OFF!"

Do you know where the train you're on is heading?

Regular readers know I'm a fan of Chronicles Magazine. I don't agree with everything all the time, but their train is going in the right direction and I'm happy to be a passenger enjoying many of their contributors. Paul Gottfried had a great editorial in the March issue called What the Right Needs Now. He points out the many failures of conservatives in their rush to make nice with the left and the relative few among them, like Rush Limbaugh, who refused to follow suit. Gottfried offers a prescription for rebuilding:

What's the Problem? Anyone? Anyone?

Editor's Note: We are creating a society that looks more and more like the Wild West merged with Bedlam, the infamous London insane asylum. A police officer stops someone and gets shot in the head or is greeted with an insane tirade. 

Guns aren't the problem. Murder begins in the mind and heart. The woman in the video uses words as a weapon. Can you imagine what she says about whites in the classroom and how she treats white students? Her hateful racism is palpable in this video and the police officer's courtesy in the face of it is admirable. Would you want her teaching your children?

Is Our Problem Guns or a Godless Worldview?

SEE, I told you so

Growing up I was taught not to lord it over other people when I was proven right when they were not seeing what I was seeing on any particular issue, i.e., when they were wrong. The term "See, I told you so" was never to be said to other people.

Well, that was long ago, and today "See, I told you so" is my favorite expression. It just feels so good to say it, so today, just one day after posting THIS, I am feeling really really great.

Since I am just me, a mother and a grandmother, who long ago majored in English then immediately went out into the world to gallop race horses for a living (my mother: "We sent you to university for this?") and do not have a degree in theology, philosophy, doctrine, Canon Law, Church management, etc,, but only learned through the School of Hard Knocks (I have a PhD in that), I am apparently not to be taken seriously...since only if all those letters were after my name would I be worthy of being listened to. 

Well, maybe then you will listen to Robert Spencer (Jihad Watch), for today he posted THIS.

Then there is THIS from the Qur'an.

Therefore I say, "SEE, I told you so". Historically, People of the Book were only the Christians and the Jews, not adherents of Islam, therefore we are not all (Christians, Jews, Muslims) "people of the book". Even Muhammad said it. So if you don't believe Robert Spencer or me, you can believe Muhammad himself:

And argue not with the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), unless it be in (a way) that is better (with good words and in good manner, inviting them to Islamic Monotheism with His Verses), except with such of them as do wrong, and say (to them): "We believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you; our Ilah (God) and your Ilah (God) is One (i.e. Allah), and to Him we have submitted (as Muslims). (Qur'an 29:46)

Nothing like having Muhammad the Liar backing up the historical truth.

What the....???? This is the Man Who Tells Us All We have to Wear Masks All the Time....

 ....and shouldn't even have more than a few family members for outside 4th of July celebrations? He and DOCTOR Biden meet with two vulnerable, elderly people without masks and not social distancing? Not only that, but isn't this the president who tells us we should avoid unnecessary travel? This photo says it all. It defines extreme hypocrisy! They don't believe their own fear-mongering hype!

"We are all People of the Book" - The biggest lie ever told

This is the biggest lie ever told.
Christians, Jews and Muslims are not all "people of the book" as Islam and multiculturalists want us to think. The ancient meaning of "people of the book", which Muhammad stole and placed in his Quran to twist the truth, only referred to Christians and Jews. The term was never used in reference to Muhammad, Islam - or even religion - since it originated long before Muhammad was ever born.

If we think about "people of the book" in reference to texts used in each religion, the term is negated since all three religions use and believe in a different book - OT for Jews, NT and OT for Christians, Quran for Muslims. The truth is that in his Quran Muhammad planted an ancient term already in use among the Arabs of his day which over later centuries, especially the past 100 years of Islamic influence bearing down upon mankind, morphed into the erroneous belief that all three religions have the same transcendent source, the same God, and the same line of prophets with Muhammad being the best and last of them all.

However the unspoken message when agreeing that we are all "People of the Book" is: "and Muhammad is our prophet because Islam is the one true faith." Why does modern man rely on political correctness for their world view, social media for their opinions, and biased leftist academic books for their history? When utilizing those devices, the truth is never discovered. It lies untouched in the dusty realm of past centuries while revisionist "history" is deviously fabricated.

Sunday Meditation: A Lesson from History

I'll start this post with a quote. See if you can guess who said it. No, it wasn't Barack Obama:
We must be ready to employ trickery, deceit, law-breaking, withholding and concealing truth....We can and must write in a language which sows...hate, revulsion, and scorn toward those who disagree with us.

Mortality Risk of the Wuhan Virus: Stop the Fear, Share the Truth!

Yes, people die from Covid. Guess what, people die from a lot of things. In fact, SURPRISE! No one gets out of this life alive! What is your actual mortality risk from the virus? That depends. For some it's miniscule:
