Sunday Meditation: On Living in a Mad, Mad World that Desperately Needs the Truth!

Catch sinners with the golden goose of truth.
For behold, the days shall come, wherein they will say: Blessed are the barren, and the 
wombs that have not borne, and the paps that have not given suck. [Luke 23:29]

Well....I'm back from retreat, back to the real world that has become an exaggerated version of the Twilight Zone.

I could say I'm back to the real bizzaro world where Bruce Jenner wants to adopt a baby so he can pretend to be a mommy and women who can be mommies are getting sterilized because they're mad about Roe v. Wade being overturned. It's a head shaker, but on the bright side, a sterilized liberal won't scandalize a poor, innocent child.

Some grammarian will no doubt tell me I'm wrong to use the word "mad" and say the women are "angry." But I use that word "mad" very deliberately. We are living in a mad, i.e. insane, world.

Guest Post: Self Knowledge, Discipline, and Discipleship by Fr. Tom Collins

There is an old Hindu story about three men, who made a long hazardous pilgrimage to the legendary Cave of Truth. When they arrived there, they saw an elderly gaunt monk sitting in front of the cave. He raised his deep-set eyes to look intently at the men and asked them, “What do you want?”.

One replied, “We want to go into the Cave of Truth.”

The monk responded, “How deeply into the cave do you want to go?”.

One man answered, “Just far enough to say that we have been there.”

This story brings to light an important spiritual truth.

Tinker Bell - The Founder of Liberalism

Woodstock in Never Never Land

If this article were titled, “The Intellectual Benefits of Liberalism” the following page would be blank because only those living on the “Mainland” of reality, seeing through the light of Truth, understand that the message of nothingness in reference to denial of God and the Truth is the foundation of liberalism like so much pixie dust sprinkled in the mind by that malicious liberal fairy, Tinker Bell.

With that said, our story begins: Once upon a time liberals assumed that the origin of their error originated from Locke, Hobbes, Voltaire, Marx and Engles or Lenin but in reality it was invented by Tinker Bell. When parents read J.M. Barrie’s fantasy novel Peter Pan and Wendy to them as malleable children, Tinker Bell’s personality (ill-tempered), freedom of flight (neglect of reality), charm (spoiled), and temperament (vindictive and jealous) were deeply absorbed into their psyches until they, unlike Peter Pan, grew up and became woke liberals. Instead of Peter Pan’s Lost Boys, woke liberals are the 2nd Lost Generation living in a magical fantasy world of their own personal make-believe island (their world view) of Never Never Land.

Into the Silence

I scheduled this post on Monday before I left on my annual five-day silent Ignatian retreat with  Fr. James Buckley of the FSSP. One of the convenient features of blogger is to be able to arrange posts to publish later. And that's what I normally do before I go on retreat. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to schedule any posts except for Part 2 of the Church Militant story, so I'm just leaving this notice. 

I'm on retreat. I won't be publishing any posts or moderating comments. 

So if Susan doesn't post anything, we'll be on silence until I return on Saturday.

This is a totally silent retreat: no screen time, no phones, nothing but an opportunity to encounter the Lord. Just thinking about it fills me with peace. There are always plenty of challenges and this year has been no different. I will be placing all things before the Lord: the good, the bad, and the ugly. 

And listening....... or at least trying to listen. Sometime the interior chatter is worse than the world's noise.

I'll be praying for all our members and visitors to the blog. Many of you are a great consolation to me and I thank God for you.

Please pray for me as well. May God bless us all and pour out His saving grace on our poor world.

The Flashlight: Church Militant's Hit Piece on the Wyoming Carmelites Gets Busted! Part 2

See Part 1

Welcome to The Flashlight where grifters and gaslighters are trapped and exposed.

To continue yesterday's story...

Augustine Inferrera, Church Militant's whistleblower, did experience two episodes where a monk supervising the building project, Brother Joseph, lost his temper with the young man and physically assaulted him. The brother was charged with simple assault and had to go to court where he pled guilty and expressed his regret. There were no injuries although Augustine reiterates over and over how "violent" Bother Joseph is (a regular Jack the Ripper) and essentially demanded his expulsion. Augustine claims there was no provocation, but we only hear his side of the story. Apparently there were witnesses. What did they say about the events? Did anyone have to physically pull the mad monk off Augustine?

The Flashlight: Church Militant's Hit Piece on the Wyoming Carmelites Gets Busted! Part 1

Welcome to the Flashlight where grifters and gaslighters are trapped and exposed.

This episode of The Flashlight will discuss Church Militant (CM) and their two videos, Counterfeit Carmel (CC) and Behind the Spotlight (BS) that target the Wyoming Carmelites as a "scam" hiding what is really a ring of homosexual perverts grooming young novices for abuse in the mountains of Wyoming.

Since the airing of these two hit pieces, push back is coming from former novices who, unlike CM's whistleblower, (He was at the monastery for LESS THAN A MONTH.) spent a combined total of over SEVEN YEARS with the monks some of it overlapping the whistleblower's time there. Their testimony is compelling. (Visit their website and YouTube channel.)

You can see three of their videos in my earlier postA fourth former novice of the Wyoming Carmelites has now joined his brothers to defend the monks against Church Militant's vicious accusations.

Welcome to The Flashlight Where Grifters and Gaslighters are Trapped and Exposed!

Tools of the Trade
Susan and I have been chatting lately about starting our own little series called The 

Why the flashlight? 

Well, first of all, we can't afford a spotlight. We don't have a green room or whatever they call that green screen that can be used to put up any background. We don't have fancy cameras and videographers to create Hollywood style programming. We're just a couple of women with a blog.

While we lack fancy equipment, we do have pencils, keyboards, and .... flashlights! I even have a cute little lantern I got at an anniversary party that provides the Biblical equivalent of the little bowl of oil with a wick that lights about one step.

Quiz for the Day: Who Said This about U.S. Involvement in Ukraine?

Hat tip to onePeter5 for the quotes.

Make your guess about the writer: Is it Archbishop Vigano?
The United States is placing its occupation troops in one country after another. This is the de facto situation in Bosnia for 9 years, in Kosovo and Afghanistan for 5 years each, in Iraq.... There is little difference between NATO’s actions and individual U.S. actions. Clearly seeing that today’s Russia poses no threat to them, NATO is methodically and persistently developing its military apparatus – to the east of Europe and into the continental reach of Russia from the south. There is open material and ideological support for “color” revolutions, and the paradoxical introduction of North Atlantic interests – in Central Asia. All this leaves no doubt that.a complete encirclement of Russia is being prepared, and then the loss of its sovereignty. No, Russia’s accession to such a Euro-Atlantic alliance, which conducts propaganda and the violent introduction into various parts of the planet of the ideology and forms of current Western democracy – would lead not to expansion, but to the decline of Christian civilization.

Church Militant's Behind the Spotlight Renews their Attack on the Carmelite Monks of Wyoming

Church Militant (CM) has a new video online called Behind the Spotlight about how they do their investigations. Below their video is this come-on:

A Joyful Story for Monday Morning: Can You Introduce a Little of the Monastery into Your Day?

Most of us aren't called to the cloister, but we can introduce a little of the cloister into our day. Praying for the good of the Church and the world is an apostolate we can all practice. May God lead us to prayer and silence during the duties of our day. May we imitate these holy women and bring peace and joy to our world.

The Rush Is On by the Left to Get Us Into World War III!

It boggles the mind to see how cavalier so many are about the prospect of a nuclear war with Russia which, by the way, may very well mean a nuclear war with China.

Which Comes First? A Crumbling Church or Crumbling Christendom?


One place on the planet to get the TRUTH in fair and unbiased news from brilliant political analysists who also are good men is THE DURAN with Alex Christoforou based in Athens, Greece, and Alexander Mercouris in London. 

If you want peace of mind about world events, stop listening to CNN and the rest of the arrogant Western media outlets financed by the deep state who, as designed, lead people into error cheering for evil such as Go Ukraine Nazis!

Will the Three Pillars of the Catholic Faith Remain Firm?

Know the three pillars of the Catholic faith!
Editor's note: This is the lead article from the Spring issue of the Les Femmes newsletter. It isn't on line yet, but most of the past issues (from Volume 5 on) are posted. This is the 27th year of publication. The newsletter began in response to Call to Action invading our churches in the Diocese of Arlington. We were able to expose and even stops a number of scandals by the grace of God and by lifting the rock hiding the creepy crawlies underneath. The laity can play an important role in defending the faith, if we cooperate with God's grace and pursue the truth. And when the Blessed Mother, our 12-star general is the editor, how can you go wrong? She's kept us in print these many years. Thank you, Blessed Mother!

Will the Three Pillars of the Catholic Faith Remain Firm?

The Catholic Church stands on a solid foundation that can’t be shaken when its three pillars are upheld. Scripture and the ruling Magisterium are two of them. The third is Sacred Tradition. Think of a well-balanced three-legged stool. The legs provide a stable foundation for the seat. Now imagine a foolish person who decides to start trimming the legs because he doesn’t like the aesthetics of the chair or thinks it needs an updated look. Trouble ahead!

Do You Ever Wonder What the Elites Have in Store For Us?

Population reduction is big on the agenda, hence the big increase in infertility we're seeing. It's no accident. Watch this short movie. It's less than half and hour and is eye-opening! Killing babies doesn't lower the population enough; we need to make women birthing people sterile.

The My Little Pony Church of Annibale Bugnini: Cognitive Dissonance and the Novus Ordo

Three major principles stress the Catholicity of the Mass: the fact that it is a propitiatory sacrifice (making up for sin), a ministerial sacrifice with an ordained minister (not a presider) prepared carefully to properly carry out his sacred role, and a eucharistic sacrifice in which bread and wine are transformed into the Body and Blood of Christ through transubstantiation.

Guest Post: Remember Vietnam and All the Other U.S. Military Debacles!

Lying Generals don't stop lying when they retire. As Yogi Berra once said it is déjà vu all over again.  by Tom McFadden

I'm old enough to remember when the generals told Congress and the American people we were defeating the Viet Cong, the North Vietnamese communists army. How could it be otherwise? They were slightly-built little guys who slipped around in what looked like black pajamas and sandals while we had helicopters, jets that dropped napalm and agent orange on them and we had lots of artillery. General Westmoreland gave the daily body counts that showed we were training the South Vietnamese Army and winning the Vietnam War. Just give the generals more time and money. And then I remember the terrified Vietnamese on the roof of the U.S. embassy in Saigon as the last U.S. helicopters flew off in ignominious defeat. The Communists inherited billions of dollars of infrastructure (airfields, ports) that we taxpayers had built and the S. Vietnamese, the lucky ones known as "the boat people" managed to board anything that floated and thousands perished at sea. A generation of American men were decimated. To thank the 58,000 killed, mostly conscripts, their government put their name on a wall. The remainder were neglected by their countrymen for serving in a losing war and so many ended up homeless, mentally-ill, or drug addicted. "Thank you for your service" was not in the lexicon.

Imagine if Every Priest Were Arrested for Rescuing his Tiniest Parishioners!

Imagine this sign on the church door: "No Mass today. Father is in jail for defending the lives of God's littlest ones by order of the bishop who was arrested first!"

150 Zulus Attacked by 4,000 Canadian Soldiers in Pink Tutus

The new "male" uniform for Canadian soldiers
As the 150 Zulu forces, "30 of whom were sick and wounded patients in the field hospital", hid behind self-made barriers and a few boulders tearfully praying while fearing their last end, their worst nightmare - the 4,000-member NATO Canadian Armed Forces! (OMG!!) - came rushing over the hill dressed in fluffy pink tutus, with rainbow colored hair swirling around their heads like color-wheel halos against the blinding sunlight and long bayonet-like fingernails poised to scratch their eyes out.

It's Time for Businesses to Just Do Business and Stop Bullying Employees!

Does your workplace look like this?
Are you sick of getting woke politics at work or play? Do you resent paying $100+ for 
concert tickets and getting a lecture from the "entertainers?" That's what happened to my daughter and granddaughter at a Dixie Chicks conference. They walked out! Entertainers who blindside their audiences by injecting their personal political views are arrogant and insulting. If you're a political comedian go for it. If you're a singer or actor, shut up and entertain!

On to the workplace. 

Does your company expect you to adopt gender ideology or embrace child-killing or the border invasion to be the right kind of employee? Do they expect you to use woke pronouns at work or talk about "pregnant people" like USA Today who demoted David Mastion after he tweeted: "People who are pregnant are also women?" He quit!

Archbishop Vigano, Richard Kalergi and Volodymyr Zelensky

On July 1st Steve Bannon interviewed Archbishop Vigano who mentioned Richard Kalergi which in turn leads us to Ukraine's President Zelensky. What's the connection, who's Richard Kalergi and why did Zelenski win the European Cudenhove-Kalergi/Charlemagne Prize?

In 2017 I wrote an article for Les Femmes titled The Children of Kalergi and reposted it in 2018. The article was about mass migration from Islamic countries (The Great Replacement). Mass immigration, currently happening at our own United States borders, is not a spontaneous phenomenon. "What the elites try to present as an inevitability of modern life, is actually the product of a plan conceived around a table and prepared by ideologues over decades to completely change the face of Europe, and now the United States".

The Ukraine War is a Scam and a Stupid and Dangerous Scam as Well!

Cui Bono?

Who benefits from beating the war drums? 

The reality is that Russia has won the war in Ukraine. Whether you hate Putin or not, the Ukraine is done. Russia has won. The only result of continuing the war is to pound the Ukrainian people into the dust and impoverish the people of the countries pouring money into the war effort. So why are political leaders not encouraging Zelensky and company to sue for peace?

Read the Declaration of Independence and Pray for our Poor Country!

Editor's comment: Note the highlighted text and ask yourself, Do we at present 
have a government that operates with "the consent of the governed?" Or does our current government see the governed, the people, as an impediment to their rule? We need to turn our eyes to the midterm elections and throw out a cabal of despots who have inflicted "repeated injuries and usurpations all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States."

In Congress, July 4, 1776

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

Almsgiving with a Clear Conscience: Don't Give to CCHD and Other Judas Catholic Groups!

I occasionally get asked what charities are safe to donate to. I have a few favorites of my own with Aid to the Church in Need, the Poor Clares, and the Little Sisters of the Poor among them. We also support a number of pro-life groups. Sad to say, many of the Catholic groups are among the most egregious when it comes to supporting intrinsic moral evils like abortion and contraception. The Lepanto Institute has a great webpage with reports on various charities both secular and religious. Their reporting on the Catholic Campaign for Human Development and Catholic Relief Services exposes their deep connection to abortion, contraception, and sodomy. Catholic Judas groups often support organizations that help defeat pro-life politicians and elect radical leftists. And they use money from the people in the pews to do it who erroneously believe their hard-earned money is helping the poor and downtrodden. 

Be careful where you donate your money. We are all called to give alms. Let's not give alms to the baby-killers facilitated by a Church bureaucracy gone bad! The Lepanto Institute has a list of safe/unsafe charities both religious and secular. Check it out here.

Blaming Putin For Whatever Is Wrong In My Life

"The Collective West"
It's all Putin's fault!

My car needs to have an oil change but I haven't taken it to the shop yet. Putin is to blame for that! The cost of automobile oil is so high now that Putin has put his toxic masculinity into play that no one can afford gas anymore, and certainly not oil to go into the car either, so I'm hesitating to buy gas and oil because I don't want to contribute to Putin's war machine. Not doing it!

It's really hot here in Florida this time of year but I refuse to turn the A/C lower than 80 degrees even though it was 102 outside yesterday. I blame Putin directly for my misery! He's to blame that I'm hot and sweaty within my own home because if the air-conditioner is set lower than 80 degrees the electric bill will be far too high and that money - MY money! - will contribute to Putin's war machine. I will NEVER do that! It's totally Putin's fault that the cost of energy is so high and it's all because he wants Americans to fund his war against Ukraine. How stupid does he think I am?!
