When Obedience is Used as a Tool of the Devil....

Who is like unto God?

Obedience is a great virtue. In fact, it is often called a foundational virtue, one that stands as a pillar to others. Whom are we called to obey? God first, of course. Then those who have lawful authority over us. Children owe obedience to their parents. Catholics owe obedience to the doctrine and precepts of the Church. We owe obedience to those in lawful authority in government. We owe obedience to the Truth, who is a person, Jesus Christ.

The Horrors of Sex Education! Is this what you want for your children?

Parents, are you paying attention? Do you know the kind of indoctrination your children are getting in the public schools? 


This is how the pamphlet opens:

Did you know that… 
• Some public schools teach children they could be born in the wrong body?1

Sheriffs say they won’t enforce Biden’s ‘unconstitutional’ COVID vaccine mandates

Doctors and scientists are speaking out against the COVID policies, some publicly and some as "I AM SPARTICUS!"  I expect this article to disappear, so I've copied the entire thing including all the references. I also downloaded the PDF, but here it is in full if you want to take the time to read it. If you value your life and that of your family, you will! As for me, "I am Sparticus too!"

Monday Morning Musings with Mary

 I finished The Imitation of Christ and The Imitation of Mary last week and started reading them again from the beginning. What wisdom and spiritual aid are contained in these two little gems! The Soul of the Apostolate has also become a daily companion. I've read it before, but it also is worth re-reading. Add a chapter from Scripture and one has a daily mini-retreat. 

The beginning of The Imitation of Mary calls her a "masterpiece of grace." Every newly baptized infant shares in that description as a mini-masterpiece of grace. Next time you hold a baptized baby, look into the little one's clean eyes and you will catch a glimpse of heaven. After Jesus, Mary is the source of our salvation. If you want to follow Him, follow her. She is a sure guide and will teach you to walk unerringly in His footsteps.

We don't see Mary in the bible busy running around. Her life was mostly spent in silence. She gives us only one piece of advice - at the wedding feast of Cana. "Do whatever He tells you." We can only follow that advice if we listen to Him. And we can only hear Him in silence, going apart like He did to a quiet place away from the world and it's distractions:

Is Hannah Merz a credible witness for Church Militant?

by Mary Ann Kreitzer and Susan Matthiesen

Ever since Church Militant (CM) began their hotfoot pursuit to discredit the SSPX, they've used a witches brew of innuendo, supposition, assumptions, and loaded language to poison the public's perception of Archbishop Lefebvre and the Society of St Pius X. Their strategy includes putting witnesses front and center whose trustworthiness and credibility are seriously questionable. Jassy Jacas is one of those witnesses, but another whom cracker jack investigator Christine Niles said a year-and-a-half ago that she planned to interview is "Hannah," Jassy's BFF (Best Friend Forever).

Hannah, of course, is Hannah Merz, the "star pupil" of career counselor Rebecca Carroll. Hannah recently took down her blog, Desert Rose Life, which leads us to wonder whether an interview with Niles is in the works.

My Favorite Piece of Classical Music: Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring by Johann Sebastian Bach

Friday offers a weekly invitation to reflect on the love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, that heart burning for love of you. Shouldn't each of us desire that love with our whole heart, soul, mind and strength? 

Some music lifts our hearts and minds to God and overwhelms us with passionate desire. The best music of all, arouses our passions to the love of Christ. Such is the music of Johann Sebastian Bach.

Can You Trust the AMA? Not by a Long Shot! (Pun intended.)

Is your doctor a Josef Mengele?

They want you to take the jab. And the AMA doesn't
mind lying and manipulating you to get you to do it. Below, I've reprinted an article from Dr. Mercola's website posted today. Since the articles are only up now for 48 hours, I copied in it full for those interested. But if you just want the highlights in a brief synopisis here's what headed the article:

Archbishop Lefebvre Speaks about his Suspension "A Divinas" in 1976 Homily at Lille, France

Have you listened and embraced all the slanders against Archbishop Lefebvre? Maybe it's time to listen to the man himself. I recently came across a video with the archbishop's own voice with English subtitles. It was the famous Mass and homily at Lille, France, after his suspension. The enemies of the archbishop called it an act of defiance, but it wasn't. It was a crie de coeur. The archbishop meant the August 29th Mass to be a private event for a few hundred people at most. But when the press got word of it, they portrayed it as an act of defiance and tens of thousands of faithful Catholics attended. I found the archbishop's words so poignant and so relevant to the disaster we are facing in the Church that I want to share it. [NB: I am not endorsing Fr. Hewko whose commentary begins the video.]

Open Letter to Clergy about Masks and the Vax: Stick to the Faith, Father!

My nephew wrote a letter to his pastor 
(printed below) after a sermon on September 12th excoriating parishioners for not wearing masks and not taking the "vaccine." The priest started out well comparing an attitude of selfishness to self-denial. But then he segued into the woke propaganda about COVID making mask-wearing and vaxing a moral imperative. He basically labeled those who don't mask and take the jab as enemies of the common good: selfish, only caring about themselves, unChristian, even evil. He told a story about bubonic plague where most of the citizens of a town stayed put rather than carry the plague to other regions and died.

We All Live in a Soap Opera! What's Happening in Today's Episode?

I've been reading Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance. It accompanied me as my beach book last week when my husband and I were on vacation with our daughter and her family. I heartily recommend it with the warning that it is liberally peppered with obscenities -- the common language of some of Vance's family members. The book shines light on life in Appalachia: the white working poor, the non-working welfare dependents, the difficulty of rising above family circumstances, the devastating impact of alcohol and drug addiction. I kept closing the book and reflecting on thoughts raised by the sad, but often funny, descriptions of the colorful characters in Vance's life. There were a number of takeaways:

Sunday Meditation: It All Starts with the Theological Virtues

Our catechism class this morning at the chapel was on the theological virtues: faith, hope, and charity. Every journey begins at the beginning and first step in the spiritual life is faith. This is how the ancient form of the Sacrament of Baptism begins (my comments in red):

AT THE DOOR OF THE CHURCH [The child or adult to be baptized is recognized as a catechumen -- not yet a full member of the Church. The sacrament begins outside the body of the Church since the one to be baptized is not yet a member. The explanations below explain it.]

Can You Trust the CDC Data on COVID?

 Throughout the COVID crisis, government health agencies have played fast and loose with the data. The latest scam is refusing to count vaccine deaths as vaccine deaths. If a patient gets the jab and drops to the floor unconscious that’s not a vaccine adverse effect. If he subsequently dies, it’s not a vaccine death. Why? Because the CDC is now refusing to count any vaccine adverse event if it occurs within 14 days of the shot. 

Makes sense, eh? 

Friday Fantasies: What If….?

What if….everyone followed the advice of St. Francis de Sales and put the best construction on the actions of others and the most critical on their own?

What if…. everyone followed the golden rule and treated others the way they would like to be treated?

What if…everyone loved and protected children, especially the most vulnerable?

Of Kinder Eggs and Oranges and the Insane Border Situation


I’m a big fan of Mark Steyn and always enjoy his guest host appearances on Tucker Carlson Tonight. I’m also a big fan of Hillsdale College which takes no federal money and sends out a fascinating monthly publication called Imprimis featuring an article by a politician, pundit, etc. So when I got the April/May issue with an article by Mark Steyn I felt doubly blessed. One portion of the article pressed my “culture is insane” button so I’ll share it. (Actually, most of the article did, but one portion especially about the border situation):

Sunday Meditation: Parents, protect your children!

It pains me to say it, but I'm appalled at the number of parents who have lost their minds. Transgender story hours can only happen because "woke" parents subject their children to perverts some of whom are convicted molesters. Why are you surprised, parents, as these psychologically damaged individuals teach your babies to twerk and simulate sex?

With Gratitude to Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre and the SSPX - Journey into Tradition and the SSPX #1

Traditional Latin Mass
St Thomas More Church, Sanford, FL

As the Traditional Latin Mass (TLM) is being suppressed around the world it's a fact that, by the providence of God, the TLM will continue among a remnant no matter what further steps are taken to suppress it. For that gift we thank the great Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre and the Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX).

The SSPX states: Until 1969, the various Catholic liturgies were all of apostolic origin. The Gregorian Latin liturgy, celebrated in this church (St Thomas More, Sanford, FL), follows the tradition of St Peter, the first Pope, and has never undergone any essential change til the present time. Every gesture, every word has been weighed and measured with the assistance of the Holy Ghost, for the greater glory of God and the salvation of souls."

Church Militant: Sympathetic to Perverts!

Did you ever notice how fortune tellers fill their windows with religious objects as props? Does Church Militant do the same?

I have to shake my head over the hypocrisy of Church Militant. Let's go back once again to their April 20, 2020 hit piece on the SSPX. The title, as you may recall, was SSPX: Sympathetic to Perverts. The title appears to have come from a letter an SSPX parishioner wrote to Bishop Fellay about layman, James Simmerman, a convicted child abuser who spent four years in jail for molesting two young girls in the congregation. A wealthy man, Simmerman also settled a $3 million lawsuit with the families involved. CM quotes from the letter to Fellay including the "sympathetic to perverts" comment that became the title of their Spotlight:

First Do No Harm...Stop the Deathvax!

Nursing baby died with blood clots, inflamed arteries following mother’s Pfizer shot, VAERS report says

Remember what all the COVID hysterics said about following all the draconian measures "if we can save one life!" Where are they now as mothers miscarry or lose their breast-feeding babies to blood clots after taking the death vax.

The time I was interviewed by a strange woman from Opus Dei

According to Opus Dei's website, membership in their organization "involves a commitment to receive spiritual formation from Opus Dei". My answer to that questionable process is that I'll do my own spiritual formation! thank you very much, and if I have questions, I'll ask a trusted priest.

Their website continues with the requirement to "participate in Opus Dei's mission." Again, my answer is that I have my own mission to carry out! I don't have time to do things for Opus Dei in any capacity. They can go take advantage of someone else to do things for them because I'm definitely not Opus Dei material.

Opus Dei says that "joining Opus Dei requires a supernatural vocation. It's a personal call from God to place one's whole life at His service." Who has time to do that for Opus Dei? (We're all called to put our whole lives at His service, not Opus Dei's.)

I had a personal supernatural vocation to be a mother to my children. It was the one time in my life that I knew what I was for. It was my supernatural calling to change their diapers, feed and bathe them, guard them from danger, take them to school, teach them about God. Who was going to do all that while I went around and worked for Opus Dei all the time?

In the Year 2525 (Exordium and Terminus)

This song has been on my mind for several days. I remember when it was a No 1 hit by Zager and Evans in 1969. It was difficult to make a decision as to which video to post so I posted four of them. With the invention of Sophia by Hanson Robotics will man even make it to 2525?

"Show Me Your Papers!" -- The Coming World Digital Documentation for COVID! Part 1

Will you need a vaccine passport to buy food?
Vaccine passports are coming (and already here in some countries) and organizations like the WHO (World Health Organization) are preparing the way for a global mandate.

I saw a Twitter post this morning showing the cover of a 97-page WHO document titled:


So I downloaded it and began reading. Sounds like a document from a dystopian novel. Truth these days rivals fiction. My comments throughout are in red!

Kamala Harris' interviews are all like this. Did you vote for her?

The Difference a Beating Heart Makes! LIFE!

Texas Heartbeat Law Protects Babies Once Heartbeats Can be Detected

Have you ever "listened" to your heart beating? Most of us don't even think about it despite the fact that our hearts beat about 115,000 times a day without our willing it or doing anything at all to facilitate it. Our hearts simply do the job our Creator ordained. We are, indeed, "fearfully and wonderfully made" called into life by the Author of life!

Thoughts for Thursday on Conscience: You Follow Yours; I'll Follow Mine!

It's interesting to see how the tune has changed among the 
Wuhan virus hand-wringers. Remember when they justified every single draconian response, "If it could save ONE life?" Now that the gene therapy jab is killing and injuring people at a rate never seen in previous "vaccinations," they tell us it's worth it because the number of injured and dying is acceptable (to them).

The Liars at the White House Keep Blaming the Latest COVID Cases on the Unvaccinated....

 ....while they hide the number of breakthrough infections on their own staff. Check out these articles:

White House Refuses to Disclose Number of COVID-19 Breakthrough Cases Among Staff 
According to the CDC, as of July 19, over 161 million people in the United States have been fully vaccinated, while, during the same period, the agency received reports of 5,914 vaccinated patients with breakthrough infections who were hospitalized or died.
