Sunday Meditation: Fine Art Uplifts the Mind and Heart.

Do you ever just sit and look at a work of classical art and think about what the artist is trying to say? If a picture is worth a thousand words, a work of real art is a magnitude richer! One of the things I love best about The Epoch Times is their Life and Tradition section which generally includes a work of classical art. I always benefit from meditating on what the artist is saying with his work.

Some Good News for a Change!

 We all need a little good news in these crazy times of daily insanity. So here are a few headlines to cheer the Christian heart.

Michigan AG admits Defeat! Religious Adoption Orgs Can Refuse Same-Sex Households

The Canadian Truckers are the Best!!!

Florida plans to protect parents’ rights!

Watch for the points of light. Darkness is nothing, i.e., no thing. And all it takes to dispel it is a lit match and a lighted candle. Let’s continue to light up the darkness with the virtues of faith, hope, and charity.

The Games Church Militant Plays! Using the Wyoming Carmelites for Target Practice

Editor’s note: Readers, be aware that I am deliberately using the same
extreme language Church Militant uses against those with whom they disagree. I would never call CM a “cult” if they did not throw out that accusation liberally against orthodox Catholics who embrace tradition, especially those who attend SSPX chapels. I will not, however, stoop to using their “pervert” and  “pedo enabler” language against them no matter how many same sex attracted men with crazy hair run their circus. But really, to call a rally by Michael and Milo “boot camp” makes me laugh! Remember Corporal Klinger in MASH? That immediately comes to mind. I had to resist the urge to post a picture of Klinger, but you can see some here
And now on to the games CM plays!

Church Militant continues to boast a number of cult followers who worship at the shrine of Michael Voris and Christine Niles.

Thought for the Day from St. Dominic

My Confirmation patron is St. Dominic. What a wise and holy man. And how much we could use him today. We live in a culture of feelings. If a woman feels like a man, she insists she really is one. If a man feels like a woman, he insists he is one. But feelings will never make a woman fancy on the outside or a man fancy on the inside as Mr. Rogers would put it. Nope! Feelings can’t change biology. They can, however, change a person in an instant from a rational being making sensible decisions, to an out-of-control puppet ruled by his feelings.

Please tell me what a woman is! (No, Alyssa, not you)

Matt Walsh: (speaking to a woman who thinks she's a man) What's wrong with this left-wing gender ideology is that no one who espouses it can even tell you what these words mean. For instance, what is a woman? Can you tell me what a woman is?

Trans activist: No, I can't. Because it isn't for me to say. Womanhood looks different for everybody.

Cult of Church Militant treading on thin ice above Malebolge

The Vortex of Hell

Malebolge is Dante Alighieri's Eighth Circle of Hell. There're nine circles of Hell in The Inferno, the ninth being the dwelling place of Lucifer eternally trapped in ice, therefore we can say that the Eighth Circle of Hell is the destination of wicked souls far down the ladder of evil who have willingly participated in egregious sins. Malebolge itself is a funnel-shaped cavern described as a VORTEX. You get the drift.

Another Study that Proves Ivermectin Reduces Death!

Inquiring. minds want to know why the "medical professionals" led by Dr. Science refuse to accept studies that prove doctors using ivermectin were right!

Conclusion: In this large PSM study [in Brazil], regular use of ivermectin as a prophylactic agent was associated with significantly reduced COVID-19 infection, hospitalization, and mortality rates:

From Dr. Mercola's Website: Hospitals are becoming prisons and death camps!

My sister was recently in the hospital with COVID. She had a terrible time getting them to release her. Fortunately, she had them write a remdesivir refusal into her medical record and told me if they tried to put her on ventilator she was checking herself out. Would they have allowed it? After four days they let her go. But I know more than one patient murdered by medical dictat using the killing protocols recommended by Fauci. Note the highlighted sections of the report below. You can view Dr. Vliet's video on Dr. Mercola's website for now. Not sure how long it will be up. You'd better be your own health advocate these days, because many medical people are incompetent or worse. 

Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet from Truth for Health Foundation lays bare what's been happening inside America's hospital system over the last two years, bringing to mind the 1977 dystopian Eagles’ hit song, “Hotel California,” where people can check in, but they can never leave.

The Autumn issue of the Les Femmes newsletter is on-line.

 The Autumn issue of the Les Femmes newsletter is online. The lead article is Chaos and Confusion vs. Christ and the Cross. Here's the beginning:

All of us at one time or another experience the chaos and confusion of significant weather events. A thunderstorm can completely blind drivers and force them to pull over and wait for rain and hail to subside. A dense fog dulls all the senses creating a sense of weird isolation. Some pilots crash their planes when instruments fail and they can’t tell up from down. An earthquake or hurricane rips through a town leaving chaos, devastation, and loss of life in its wake!

People see clearly the results of physical chaos and its damage, but emotional and spiritual chaos can also knock us off balance and lead to serious consequences that, in many ways, are worse than physical effects. [Read more....]

Oh...and we gave Church Militant an award. They richly earned it!

Hey! It's not the Jab; It's a Pandemic of Propaganda and Coincidence!

Expectant moms, don't get the jab!
Anyone paying attention knows at this point that something 
unprecedented is happening with the experimental gene therapy fraudulently promoted as a "vaccine." The VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System) has never before in its history seen the explosion of deaths and injuries reported from a vaccine. But the geniuses developing COVID policy, like Tony Fauci, assure us that the vaccines are "safe" and all the adverse events are "normal" and "just a coincidence" and not, definitely not, associated with the jab. Or, if they are associated, they are the normal deaths from a normal vaccination and are rare, very rare! And the death and injury of your loved ones are necessary for the common good everyone else (especially the bank accounts of Big Pharma execs and Bill Gates).

 Normal! Just a coincidence! Really?

Church Militant needs an anatomy lesson

Anatomy 101:
(a) the neck is above the chest
(b) the neck is not the chest
(c) the chest is below the neck and therefore not the same thing

Each time Church Militant says "based on Church Militant investigators" I laugh. I laugh because even when the evidence was written on paper in black and white, and even when the victim/whistleblower, while being filmed in an interview, told and even demonstrated what happened, Church Militant in general, and Christine Niles in particular, told a lie an "inaccuracy"- you know, because a lie "specific error" is more sensational than the truth.

When Pravda and Joseph Goebbels Control the Media....

Poster for Nazi anti-semitic propaganda
film, The Eternal Jew
 ...It's not a pretty or healthy picture!

Take every episode of history when tyrants controlled the media and 
you'll understand what's happening in the United States and globally. Let's begin by focusing on media censorship and spin. Everyone on Facebook has experienced it, sometimes in head-shaking wonderment as FB automated censors put warnings on photos of beautiful babies in the womb and hide them for being "graphic." But it's much more sinister than that. 

The crusade against "misinformation," which censors the truth went nuclear during the 20th century and is even worse now. Media bigwigs magnified it in 2019 when the BBC (British Broadcasting Company) hosted the Global Conference on Media Freedom, a perfect illustration of George Orwell's doublespeak (definition: the inversion of meaning).

For the Sake of Your Soul, Think Often about Death!

Death of St. Joseph by Francisco Goya (1787)

We've seen a lot of death since the Wuhan virus was released on the world. Dr. Zelenko, one of the pioneers in early treatment calls it a bio-weapon. (I'm including an interview with Dr. Zelenko below from Dr. Mercola's website since they are only up for a few days. Read it if you like; it's supplemental to my point which is a spiritual one.)

So what is my point?

Sunday Meditation: "Do Whatever He Tells You."

The wedding feast at Cana

This morning my husband and I went to the 8:30 Mass at St. John the Baptist in Front Royal which was an ad orientem high Novus Ordo -- very reverent, Gregorian chant, incense -- lovely. But I have to say the sad thought came to me that, no matter how well it's done, the Novus Ordo is a poor imitation of the Traditional Latin Mass. It will never be the Mass of the Ages and we lost the unity, the oneness, of all people worshiping in the same language.

Concurring Opinion from Justices Gorsuch, Thomas, and Alito on Vaccine Mandate Decision

I posted yesterday about the Supreme Court's decision in National Federation of Business vs. the Department of Labor/OSHA. Today, let's take a look at the concurring decision written by Justice Gorsuch and joined by Justices Thomas and Alito. It's an interesting document that adds significantly to the reasoning behind the decision. First of all Gorsuch clearly identifies the constitutional rights and powers of the states vs. those of the federal government. It makes for interesting reading:

There is no question that state and local authorities possess considerable power to regulate public health. They enjoy the “general power of governing,” including all sovereign powers envisioned by the Constitution and not specifically vested in the federal government.

Supreme Court Blocks OSHA mandate; Victory for Workers!

Supreme Court blocks Biden’s business vax mandate, allows jab requirements for gov’t healthcare providers

I'm reading the Supreme Court's decision and it's clearly a victory for workers! It cancels the OSHA mandate which frees about 84.2 million workers (OSHA's estimate) from the mandatory jab. The court's reasoning? OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) never had that kind of authority which is about "occupational" safety. Mandating broad health regulations is outside their function to protect people "on the job."

Don't Let the Seriousness of the Times Fill Your Soul with Fear!

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear: but of power, and of love, and of sobriety."
2 Timothy 1:7

Last night my husband and I had a telephone conversation with one of my husband's brothers. As we discussed family matters and shared about our respective grandchildren, we agreed that we live in scary times. The secular culture, under a demented president and a leftist agenda, is a mess! And the Church, which should be our rock, is teetering under the rule of evil men. It's easy to sink into discouragement and fear.

Open Letters from Medical Experts about the COVID Debacle. Time to Listen to the Experts!

Editor's comment: I copied the open letter below from Tom Woods' email list. I highly recommend his book,  How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization. Woods is a libertarian and is always interesting and informative. The doctor whose open letter is copied below is one of the medical experts governments should have been listening to instead of snake oil salesmen like Tony Fauci. If medical experts like Udi Qimron were at the microphone instead of Fauci and Birx, we would likely have seen far fewer deaths from COVID and far fewer catastrophic societal events like suicides, drug overdoses, business failures, children falling behind in education, etc. May the names of Fauci and Birx live in infamy!

After you read Dr. Qimron's letter, check out another open letter written almost a year earlier on March 26, 2020 by Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi. The data has been long known and ignored. The governments responsible, who continue this madness, are irresponsible and incompetent! And the deaths caused by the experimental gene therapy fraudulently promoted as a "vaccine" will be on their heads.

And now the letter.

Udi Qimron, head of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Tel Aviv University and a leading Israeli immunologist, has taken the opportunity posed by the collapsing narrative to release this open letter to the authorities (this is a mechanical translation from the original Hebrew):

Was this Chicago Christmas "Mass" Valid, Cardinal Cupich? Is Fr. Pfleger in Good Standing?

I heard about this disgraceful blasphemy, but had avoided watching it. After a friend sent me the video with her comments, I bit the bullet, prayed the St. Michael prayer, and pressed the play button. 

Words fail me. Make the sign of the cross as an act of repentance before you watch.

I'll put my friend's email below the video and then my own comments to follow.

The Pope of Intrinsic Evil Strikes Again!

Follow LifeSiteNews to keep up on the latest Francis scandals.

Pope Francis hates the faithful who attend the Latin Mass. Who does he love and praise? LGBT activists who endorse sodomy and abortionists who murder the unborn. Oh...and pro-abortion politicians like Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi.

The Vaxed Chickens Are Coming Home to Roost (AND SOME TO DIE)!

Teachers at the Dr. Fauci school of "vaccination" research

Some "medical professionals" think all the negative data coming out about the jab is just one big conspiracy theory from a bunch of ignorant, mentally ill folks wearing tin hats. They seem to believe that the only doctors who are real medical professionals (besides themselves) are the ones they agree with Dr. Fauci. No matter how impressive the credentials of other medical professionals, they are dismissed as quacks and cranks.

Pope Francis admits he's insane

As he discriminates against and persecutes Traditional Catholics and outlaws the Old Mass, the Marxist hypocrite that is Francis wants us to pray for his January 2022 intentions of Religious Discrimination and Persecution. Does that mean that we're to pray for more religious discrimination and persecution from him?

The Vatican's video is below, but here's Francis' narrative from it, followed by my comments.

Francis: How is it possible that many religious minorities currently suffer discrimination or persecution?
Gee, I don't know, Francis. How is that?

How can we allow that in this society, which is so civilized, there are people who are persecuted simply because they publicly profess their faith?
I don't know. You tell me since you're the one persecuting Traditional Catholics.

Open Letter to Bishop Michael Burbidge, Diocese of Arlington, Virginia on Access to the Traditional Latin Mass

Editor's Comment: Many bishops around the country are acting in haste to implement the illegitimate motu proprio, Traditionis Custodes, and the responsa to the dubious dubia. The shepherds have much reason to go slowly before joining a good ole boys' club (literally) to hammer the faithful for loving the holy Mass celebrated by the saints for millennia. Instead of providing a fish, many are giving us a serpent, instead of bread, a stone. They are engaged in a hopeless task, because, as Gamaliel said to the Sanhedrin, if it's from God they will find themselves fighting against God. Anyone who has ever attended a Tridentine Mass can testify to the fact that it's from God. There's no question that it gives all honor, glory, and praise to our Creator through His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Please join me in letting your bishop know that you want what the English martyrs wanted, the holy Mass! Let us pray and offer Masses for our shepherds!

Most Reverend Michael Burbidge,
Bishop of the Diocese of Arlington
200 North Glebe Rd. 
Arlington, VA 22203

Wow! Sharing the Opinions of Good Doctors Needs a Trigger Warning!

I just got off the phone with someone who read me the riot act for today's earlier post about the doctors blowing the whistle on COVID policies and the movement toward forced vaccination and vaccine passports. I guess I should have started the post with a trigger warning! My caller was clearly upset. You could hear it in her voice which was shaking. After saying that I'm unchristian and unfeeling and she wanted to tell me off which she proceeded to do, she hung up without waiting for a response. 

We're in the Brave New World, Folks! Is Anyone Listening to the REAL Medical Experts?

My sister, an uber liberal, sent me a text the other day with CNN's resident "medical expert" spreading fear about Omicron which is about as serious as a bad cold. Nevertheless, he was beating the drum about hospitals being overwhelmed, yada, yada and my sister was so worried because I said in my Christmas letter that I'd had COVID and was immune and would gladly help any sick parents needing help with their children. 

CNN and the other mainstream media echo chambers are in bed with the rich liars benefiting financially from the gene therapy and willing to sacrifice the hoi polloi for two purposes -- control and money! Listen to the real medical experts who are warning about the creation of a data base that can be used to take over the lives of every person in the world. "The world's first digital data base," using an individual digital identity, will be used to control every person on the planet. The "vaccine" passport system is for the purpose of coercion and  complete control of humanity by requiring people to "show their papers" to shop, travel, etc. "Vaccine and top-up vaccines are evil and aimed at mass depopulation."

Listen to the experts who are blowing the trumpet!

Everybody's making their 2022 Predictions; My Favorites are from the Babylon Bee!

Here's a post that's just for fun. In a society so filled with bad news we can all use a laugh or two. Amazingly, at a time when real news looks like satire, the Babylon Bee still does satire so well and makes us laugh at the insanity! God bless their writers!

The Babylon Bee's Top Predictions For 2022

It's that time of year again—when the infallible prophets at The Babylon Bee tell you what will happen in the next year with 100% accuracy! Will 2022 be better than this year? You decide!

Fathers, You Are "Obliged to Resist" Traditionis Custodes and the Responsa ad Dubia

‘Sitting on the fence is not an option’: It is our duty to resist suppression of the traditional rites according to Dr. Peter Kwasniewski.

Okay, folks, we're not in Kansas anymore! The shockwaves of the atomic bombs of Traditionis Custodes and the Responsa Ad Dubia have thrust us head over heels into the land of Oz where the white-robed warlock of the west rules with a wooden stang given to him by Ozian youth in the name of Ozma during a synod for young people....

Well, enough of that nonsense!

Random Thoughts on New Year's Day!

New Years Eve dinner table
  • Why do they call New Year's Eve "first night" when it's really last night?

  • We had a little New Year's Eve party last night with a priest friend and several other guests including my sister-in-law. When we said the rosary she surprised me by gifting me a rosary that belonged to my grandmother, our grandchildren's great-great grandmother! My mom gave it to her, and she generously regifted it to me. I am so grateful! Big hugs to Jessica! I can't think of a gift I would appreciate more!
