Welcome to THE FLASHLIGHT where grifters and gaslighters are trapped and exposed.
Church Militant is obviously feeling the sting from the challenge by former novices of the Wyoming Carmelites. You can know that because they've now brought in the BIG GUN, a WOMAN and former novice with NO experience of the Wyoming Carmel AT ALL.
|CM grifters double down on their attack with new "expert" witness.|
Here's what CM says about their latest "whistleblower" who is affirming Augustine Inferrara's story without having any personal knowledge or experience with the Wyoming Carmelites or even, apparently, with Augustine. Everything is based on her impressions and opinions from watching Christine Niles' Spotlight attack piece:

|Do traditionalists only care about the vestments and altar linens? Is it a negative to give|
God dignified and beautiful worship? Read Exodus 35-39 and Leviticus!
I used regularly to read the blog of a Catholic which I found interesting and often thought-provoking. Ultimately, however, there came a parting of the ways. I stopped visiting because he closed his eyes to every scandalous thing the pope did defending what was indefensible. More and more he and those who commented on his blog condemned Catholics for defending the faith against Francis's very un-Catholic behavior: his promotion of abortion, sodomy, etc., his reverencing Pachamama and the circle spirits, his syncretism that leads others to think all religions are the same. None of this is Catholic and to point that out is to defend the faith and protect those being led into sin by the scandal.

|An Orgy in Imperial Rome|
by Henryk Siemiradzky
What does the decadent West have to offer the rest of the world? Abortion? Sodomy? Drag Queens? Transgender studies? In our private lives we can block out cultural decadence but each time we simply go to the grocery store or shop at the mall we're inundated with current Western "values". It's in our face everywhere from ripped jeans (jeans so ripped that it looks like the girl is wrapped in bare threads) to girls wearing shorts so short that the lower part of their buttocks shows.
One clothing store at the mall had large Marc Jacobs posters with a pregnant transgender man in a bikini and a transgender woman wearing a silver shift holding up a pink bottle of perfume. The posters were placed in the middle of a main aisle so that every person entering and exiting the store had to see them, including children.

For the past 10 days I've been posting comments on a well known website "debating" with a person who comments on nearly all that site's articles mirroring their point of view. This person might be one of the authors or one of their spouses, an employee or one of their spouses. I have no idea who this person is, however she's obviously someone approved by the website's ownership.
Since the person thought I was a man because of my comment name she revealed that she's a woman, 5'1", age 62 and has a bad knee. Wanting to even the playing field (woman to woman, because for some reason this person thought the proverbial battlefield to be real) I revealed that I'm also a woman, my age and height and that I'm in perfect health. She then accused me of threatening to kill her!

Welcome to The Flashlight where Grifters and Gaslighters are Trapped and Exposed.
Is Church Militant (CM) collecting information about visitors to their website? Do they have malware embedded that allows them to collect your IP address and other personal information about you? Restoring the Faith makes a credible case that they did exactly that -- until their lies and falsehoods were exposed. Here's the video. I'm a little late catching this since the video was from last March, but it illustrates exactly how devious CM is. They act like Richard Nixon during the Watergate scandal with his enemies list.

|St. Bernard of Clairvaux choking a demon!|
Today is the feast of St. Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153), surely a saint for our time. He opposed anti-pope Anacletus II who remained on the papal throne until his death. Anacletus's anti-pope successor, Victor III, repented and resigned after two days and acknowledged the true pope, Innocent II. We are not the only ones living in confusing times.

|An early case of cognitive dissonance|
I once experienced a severe case of vertigo. Not only could I not stand up without holding onto something, my stomach was in turmoil, and the only relief came from lying down. It's something I hope never to go through again. My body was not in conformity with the world.

The method used by the propagandists is very simple: a lot of videos of unclear source, plus repeating all the obvious lies of the Ukrainian Government, plus belittling every loss. Russia’s downfall is always a
bout to happen. Their losses assume fantastic proportions for people who, actually, shell the Ukrainians 10 to 1 most of the time (this is, by the way, admitted by many Ukrainian sources themselves). Severodonetsk was to be Putin’s Stalingrad. When it was lost, it became irrelevant in the great scheme of things because hey, we have Lisichansk. When Lisichansk, too, was lost, well that was a victory of sort because we inflicted to the Russians (de-humanised as orcs; it helps a lot by massacres) sooooo many purely imaginary losses we are now well, well in front of them. Then we keep retreating, and they keep advancing. But hey, they must be so, so demoralised!

It's an absolutely essential virtue. Can you guess what it is? I'll give you a hint, although you've probably figured it out already.
What happened at the Last Supper after Jesus overheard his apostles asking each other who was the greatest? He did something that astonished them. He washed their feet, the act of a lowly servant. And then he said, "Let this be a lesson to you," It's a lesson for all of us!
And what is that lesson? HUMILITY!
Fr. John Hardon (The priest who proved there really were still some holy Jesuits left.) often said that only faith-filled, little, humble people will go to heaven. Remember the pharisee in the temple bragging about how holy he was? Jesus corrected that idea lickity split. He told the crowds the pharisee went home from the temple not only not justified, but with the implication that he was even more entrenched in his sinful pride.

Not only that but there's incredible news coming from Florida that Elvis is alive and well at Mar-a-Lago and Trump has given him the nuclear codes.
Here's Kathy Lindsdale with the Mainstream Media interviewing an FBI agent willing to disclose information found inside the former president's home.

The Arlington Catholic Herald, our diocesan newspaper, came yesterday. I generally check the priest's moves and the bishop's schedule and do a quick page-through to see if I want to read anything. It used to be a joke among some of my confreres, when Bishop Paul Loverde was our ordinary to count how many photos of him graced the pages of the paper. Bishop Burbidge can't compete. His only photo in this issues was the stamp-sized mini attached to his column.
At any rate, one headline caught my eye and caused uncontrollable eye-rolling and head-shaking, and, frankly, anger over the dishonesty it illustrated.

If you were the bug in that chicken's mouth what would be your last words?
Browsing my email this morning, I came across a headline asking, "What will be your last words?" I didn't read the article, a sermon for the feast of St. Lawrence. I've avoided the author for years after his severe criticism of home schooling parents.

Centralization of government kills freedom. When one party controls all three branches of government, freedom dies. We are there with only a few strict constructionist judges holding the line. All the institutions of government are in the hands of the tyrants and will be controlling our lives from cradle to grave!
Gridlock is a blessing! We need more of it!
Listen to Antonin Scalia and take his words to heart. We will not see his like again. Listen to him describe the Bill of Rights of the Soviet Union before the fall. It was greater than ours with even more "freedoms." As Scalia says it was a "parchment guarantee," meaningless in real life. Learn to love the gridlock, he says, which protects minorities. "It doesn't take much to throw a monkey wrench into this complex system [of ours]." The Framers knew what they were doing.

|Thomas Cranmer, |
Archbishop of Canterbury
It's not, in fact, a new tactic. During the regency of Edward VI, son of Henry VIII, those in power used Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury, to weaponize the Mass in order to force recusant Catholics into the Anglican services. After the brief reign of Queen Mary, the tyranny escalated. The brutal and cruel punishment of the English population for the crime of attending the Latin Mass was to be hanged, drawn, and quartered. Thank God we don't face that! Punishment for refusing to attend the new mass was economic ruin! They rapidly turned the country into an apostate nation hostile to the pope and to the Church.
Read the stories of the English priests and laity martyred at Tyburn Tree to weep and lament the evil being resurrected in our own time using softer persecution. Be thankful that the most that will ultimately happen to us is likely to be accusations of schism. After all, as Francis so famously said, "I pray that there will not be schisms, but I am not afraid." In that same airplane interview, he implied that those who disagree with him have mental problems:
|The breaking of the Traditional Catholic mind|
Since Francis cannot do what Henry VIII did - physically torture and kill Catholics - he's doing psychologically with known methods of psychological torture to cause the disintegration of personality - or more to the point, the disintegration of the Traditionalist personality - to the point of acquiescence, that is, to the point that Traditionalists will go without protest into the Novus Ordo Mass.
His only option to kill the Old Mass is to psychologically torture Traditionalists until they give up their recalcitrant ways and to do this entails a new attribute previously not wanted in the character of bishops - cruelty. On the part of Bergoglio it's apparently pagan sadistic cruelty since he seems to derive pleasure from Traditionalists' suffering and humiliation by deleting Jesus within our souls with the killing of the Old Mass, crushing it then putting it to death. Then when psychologically tortured Traditionalists have lost resistance to losing their Faith, they, spiritually broken, will finally surrender and join the dance that is the Novus Ordo.

From the "Ya Just Gotta Laugh File" wherein Francis Accuses Traditionalists of "Paganism of Thought."
So...those who love tradition are guilty of "paganism of thought."
Does Francis ever listen to himself? Are traditionalists the ones whose fruits illustrate "paganism of thought?" Is it not instead the man who:
- bends the knee to Pachama and engages in pagan smudging rituals honoring the "circle of spirits,"

I found this video so incredibly sad.
First of all, I have always had great respect for Fr. Tom Vander Woude who is the pastor at Holy Trinity in Gainesville. In a previous post, I mistakenly said the congregation at Holy Trinity was being abandoned because the Montessori school is in the boundaries of All Saints in Manassas. However, it is the priests of Holy Trinity who will care for that very large Latin Mass community -- at least until the next act of suppression is implemented.

The Pontifical Academy of Life which, like the ministries in Orwell's 1984, has become the opposite of its name, recommends a "pardigm shift" in moral teachings. You know -- hate is love, death is life, slavery is freedom, etc. Really, folks, sin is beautiful and we can all be like gods.
As Fr. Jerry Pokorsky writes in Deja Vu All Over Again (sigh) we've been here before. The article begins with an interesting quote from Evalyn Waugh:

The other night I watched, once again, the 1973 film, The Catholics, with Martin Sheen and Trevor Howard. The title was later changed to Conflict.
If you want to understand where we're going, watch the movie.
Brief synopsis: The Latin Mass has almost disappeared after Vatican IV. A group of Irish monks, however, continue to pray the Latin Mass and, to accommodate the crowds, they say it on a mountain that was once the scene of Masses during Cromwell's persecution. After a news broadcast about the Mass, pilgrims head to Ireland from all over the world to attend the Latin Mass which puts the monks on modern Rome's radar screen.
Are you getting the gist of where I'm going?

What a week! The Holy Father was in Canada participating in pagan ceremonies, while my bishop, Michael Burbidge, was meeting with the priests of the diocese dropping the bomb on the Traditional Latin Mass (TLM) in obedience to the pope's apostolic letter, Traditionis Custodes (TC).
