Let Us Pray for Peace to Christ the King through the Intercession of Our Lady!

Editor's Comment: Let all on earth, especially Catholics, pray and do penance for an end to the war between Russia and Ukraine. As we celebrate All Saints and All Souls Day, we can turn to allies in heaven and in purgatory to join in our plea for a just peace. No conflict between nations is a black and white event. Personally, I believe there have been very few wars that were just according to the teachings of Just War Theory. And often, historians find that wars were deliberately provoked to benefit cetain elite groups by increasing their power and control and their riches. May God have mercy on us all and prevent a third World War which we very much deserve for our diabolical disorientation!

Russian Catholic Bishops Courageous Under Putin

T. S. FlandersOctober 31, 2022

Above: the Latin rite Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Moscow, which was restored and rebuilt after the fall of Soviet Communism.

Since the invasion of Ukraine by Putin in February this year, the Russian Catholic bishops have shown the courage incumbent upon successors of the Apostles. We must remember that our brethren in Russia, of the Latin and Greco-Slavonic rites, are a tiny minority who were viciously persecuted under the Soviets, and have slowly built back their churches and numbers over the past few generations.

As war propaganda has escalated in Russia, this has only increased the tension upon Catholics as direct criticism of the war is an illegal and chargeable offence. Faced with the invasion of Ukraine, the Russian bishops fearlessly called Russian politicians to their responsibility for aggression before God.

Consecration of Russia

With the March 25 consecration of Russian and Ukraine to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart, it is clear that the Blessed Virgin has galvanised the Russian and Ukrainian Catholic bishops to lay down their life for their sheep. Tirelessly His Beatitude, Patriarch Sviatoslav Shevchuk, who proclaimed that the Consecration would be “victory over evil,” continues daily to shepherd his flock, our Ukrainian Catholic brethren, in the face of invasion and the horrors of war. Meanwhile, Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Bishop Ihor Isichenko has led his entire diocese into the Catholic Church. [Read more at OnePeter5...]

Meditation for Sunday: How will you honor Christ the King today?

Today we dedicated the SSPX Immaculate Heart of Mary chapel in Linden, VA to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. And now I ask myself how I can unite myself more closely to His heart. Mother Teresa said she wanted to become so little she could fit into Christ's heart, that heart which is big enough to contain the entire universe. There is room for all who love Him. 

I couldn't do better today than to share a wonderful post from The Musings of an Old Curmudgeon blog, a sharing so beautiful it moved my heart closer to the heart of Jesus. I send you now there with the prayers of my guardian angel in company with yours that you might bask in the glory and warmth of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. A big thank you to Jovan-Marya Weismiller for his beautiful reflection.

Monsignor Lefebvre, the SSPX, and I

O Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto thine.

Return to the Twilight Zone Part 2: The Overreach of the Responsa ad Dubia

Pope Francis, in an act of pontifical contempt, ignored the dubia of the four cardinals who asked for clarification of Amoris Laetitia. No responsa for you!

Yesterday, I began re-examining the documents issued by Pope Francis suppressing the Traditional Latin Mass (TLM), Traditionis Custodes (TC) and his accompanying letter. [See Part 1.] Today, I'll move on to the Responsa ad Dubia (RaD). 

But before that, a clarification: 

The dubia discussed here is not, of course, that of the four Cardinals who questioned the doctrinal ambiguity of Amoris Laetitia. Those questions, relating to allowing couples in invalid marriages to receive the Body and Blood of Christ sacrilegiously, remain unanswered after more than six years. Clarifying and affirming unchanging and unchangeable doctrines does not seem to be a priority of this pontificate. Francis treats the orthodox, both clerical and laity, with a dismissive contempt. Undermining doctrine, affirming dissent, placing enemies of the Church on papal commissions, and advancing syncretism appear to be his priorities. But, I'll go silent on those aspects of this papacy for now and move on to the RaD.

Return to the Twilight Zone Part I: Traditionis Custodes and Its Accompanying Documents

Where have all the Catholics gone? Out the door to join the "nones."

I'm re-reading Traditionis Custodes (TC), the Motu Proprio that abrogated Summorum 
and sent traditional Catholics to the reeducation camps. I'm also re-reading the papal letter that accompanied it as well as the Responsa ad Dubia (RaD). 
Why inflict that punishment on myself? Because it's important to understand and be able to discuss the impact of these documents on the faithful, particularly those who are seeking refuge in the SSPX.

Take Jesus to the Streets! Witness to an Unbelieving World!

As I watched these Eucharistic Processions, I wondered whether this will become illegal at some point. Crazy thought? In England, a town has already banned making the sign of the cross, reading Scripture, praying audibly or using holy water in a "safe zone" around an abortion business. (Source) Let us continue to worship publicly while we still can. No doubt the godless tyrants of the United States are already considering how they can stop such public displays of faith that are so anti-social.

When the World is Falling Apart, Take Time Out to do Something Normal. Build Memories with Your Children and Grandchildren.

One of my favorite October events is dinner in a pumpkin.

 Last Sunday we had a family party and invited everybody to bring a pumpkin to decorate or carve. Nobody took us up on that, even our daughter who suggested it. I had to laugh when she and her children arrived with no pumpkins. Our son's family had a late sports event with their second grader and arrived shortly before dinner, so they anticipated no time for pumpkin family. And our other daughter's family had already decorated their pumpkins. So other activities, mostly catching up on everyone's news took precedence. [Read more here.]

"The West is obsessed with world domination" - Lavrov

 The following article appeared in TASS Russian News Agency, 10/25/2022

West ramps up arms supplies to Kiev
in bid to destroy Russia — Lavrov

The top diplomat stressed that the US-led collective West, 
"obsessed with world domination," had unleashed a "total hybrid
 war" against Russia

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov

MOSCOW, October 25. /TASS/. The US-led West is pushing ahead with a hybrid war against Russia and, in an effort to ruin the country, is increasing arms supplies and providing intelligence to the Kiev regime, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in his address to the plenary session of the 24th World Russian People's Council, read out by the Foreign Ministry’s special ambassador, Gennady Askoldovich.

"The West is using [Ukrainian President Vladimir] Zelensky’s criminal Russophobic regime as one of the levers to contain our country. We see Washington and its NATO allies increasing the supplies of lethal weapons to the Ukrainian neo-Nazis, sharing intelligence data with them and recruiting foreign mercenaries to send to Ukraine. All this, in one way or another, makes them parties to the conflict," Lavrov’s address reads.

Sometimes They Accidentally Tell the Truth! "Transgender Women" Must Register for the Draft, but NOT "Transgender Men!"

You can only suppress the truth for so long. When reality conflicts with the woke "reality," which is really a denial of reality, it ultimately knocks you up the side of the head. A lot of "transgender" people are learning that as they come to the horrible realization that they've destroyed their bodies and it was a big mistake!

On the Feast of St. Raphael, Pray for the Difficult People in Your Life!

I love St. Raphael! What a patron for all of us maneuvering this valley of tears. First of all, he heals physical ailments. He cured Tobit of his blindness, but only after a long trial for the dear old man.

It's not just money any more. We're sending troops to Ukraine. WW III anyone?

The war uniparty is at it again. 4700 troops from the 101st airborne division have been deployed to the Ukraine border with Romania to engage in war games. WAR GAMES!
Another uber-escalation of tensions! Who benefits from all this? Not the American people in flyover country, that's for sure. It's our children and grandchildren who will be the cannon fodder going forward. 

Is Anyone Listening to Catholics in the Pew? GIVE US THE MASS!

Newly elected Pope Francis with St. Gallen Mafia member Cardinal Danneels (seated)

Ever since Jorge Bergoglio came out on the balcony as Pope Francis (the first of that name - poor St. Francis), we've been bombarded with words like "pastoral".... "listening".... "dialogue".... "collegiality"...."synodality"....etc. ad nauseum. Like the Big Brother ministries in Orwell's 1984, the reality is the exact opposite. There is no pastoral treatment, listening, or collegiality for those who hold fast to the perennial teachings of Holy Mother Church. All the listening goes one way. Atheists, dissenting priests and bishop, abortionists, homosexuals, Muslims, idol worshipers, etc.; they all have the ear of Pope Francis. Those who stand firm and hold the ground for the teachings of the Church Fathers are treated with derision and contempt.

Time Out for a Break from all the Bad News. Let us Glory in God's Color Show!

The beauty of an autumn drive in the Virginia and West Virginia mountains. Come and see!

My husband and I took a picnic to Lost River State Park in West Virginia yesterday. The ride over North Mountain under the canopy of color thrilled my heart. God's world inspires me as the greatest art museum and symphony hall on the planet.

A Spot On Comment about Church Militant and their Scandal Porn

Mary Magdalene, the Repentant Sinner

Editor's Note: The comment below from Andrew Dunn was left on yesterday's post about Church Militant and the SSPX. It is so spot on it deserves to be featured. Have you ever noticed that most of Church Militant's non-scandalous content is behind a pay wall for "premium subscribers." Their bread and butter and click bait is salacious scandal. Do great evils need to be exposed? Yes. But take a look at The Remnant, Catholic Family News, LifeSiteNews, and other mature Catholic media  and compare the difference in the way things are covered. God bless Andrew for posting this insightful comment.

"Church Militant," and I put their name in quotes because their name is so inappropriate, is basically a porn website when you analyze their content, their go-to-market strategy and the way they stay in business. How?

Some Things are Worth Repeating: The SSPX Revisited

Editor's Note: I wrote this post in the midst of the lockdowns in 2020. In view of Church Militant engaging in their latest attack on the SSPX, I thought it was worth repeating. John Salvi, CM's "expert," is an apologist with absolutely no authority in the Church. Michael Voris, although he postures as an authority on just about everything, is a big-mouthed layman with a microphone and a green screen. He has absolutely no authority either. It's interesting that part of John Salvi's "expertise," discussed in this video, is his history as a 32nd degree Mason. He uses his wicked past as a credential. Voris rarely talks about his wicked past as an active homosexual and only revealed it when it was about to become public. Neither of these men, Voris or Salvi, are authorities and their statement that the SSPX is in schism is an opinion, nothing more. Voris has made attacking other Catholics a staple of his yellow journalism. Listening to him is like reading the tabloids at the grocery store checkout. Sensationalism unmasked! Here's what I wrote in 2020 and it is just as true today.

Church Militant Is at It Again! NO, the SSPX is NOT in Schism!

I won't be saying much about this yet because I haven't had a chance to do enough research, but the latest assault on the SSPX by Church Militant has risen to a new level of vicious attack. (If you watch the episode, note Michael's snide comments throughout.) Their assault weapon in this case is a "former" 32nd degree mason, John Salza, slandering Archbishop Lefebvre and the SSPX. One Peter 5 has an interesting article on Salza (John Salza Replies to John Salza) by Rudolph West. Included in the article intro is this:

Two Steps Forward, One Step Back: Pope Extends the Synod on Synodality....Hmmm.

Why? Because of course!
Well this is interesting. 

Pope Francis Announces Decision to Extend Synod on Synodality to 2024 

One immediately wonders....WHY the extension? Could it be that developments warn the Vatican that things are moving too fast -- that growing opposition indicates the next synodal assault on the faith faces mass resistance? Hmm....

Is it time to back up a step and regroup and let people go back to sleep? Perhaps the other synods deconstructing the faith woke up too many Catholics. Maybe it's time to let the dust settle while the long-term agenda is allowed to simmer quietly for awhile. Whisper campaigns, nibbling at doctrines instead of taking huge bites may be a good temporary strategy.

Monday Morning Musings While Watching a Dancing Candle Flame

I start my day with prayer and the first thing I do after dipping my finger in the holy water fount and making the sign of the cross is to light a candle. I love to watch the flame flicker and dance inviting me to enter into the joy of worship. It reminds me of the expression "Chance or the Dance." Did all the wonder of creation come about through the mindless randomness of evolution? Or did it not come from the overflowing love of the Holy Trinity embracing humanity in an enthusiastic and joyful dance? 

I have no doubt of the answer!

Sunday Meditation: You Can Learn a Lot of Things from the Chickies!


When life seems to be running off the rails like a train wreck, it’s a good time to focus on homely things – like chickens! I wanted chickens for years. We moved to the country in 2002, have plenty of room, and, hey!, eggs are Biblical. “What father will give his child a scorpion when he asks for an egg?” My husband wasn’t enthusiastic about the idea of raising chicks, so for years I lobbied and he just laughed and shook his head. Ah, but persistence pays. He asked me what I wanted for my 75th birthday last March. I didn’t miss a beat. “CHICKENS!” How could he refuse?

So we began the grand chicken adventure. We bought six little pullet chicks and I set them up in a Rubbermaid bin in our garage with a lamp, a feeder, and a water dispenser. The grandkids were charmed and named the chickens. Sadly, one, Raptor, died so Larry went back to Tractor Supply and bought me four more bringing us to nine. As they grew, the children and I took them on “field trips” in the yard to let them experience the world and get socialized by being picked up and petted. Meanwhile, my husband, like the good carpenter St. Joseph, built me a coop. We transitioned them to their new home and they settled in.

Déjà Vu in the World and the Church! Part 2

Pope St. Pius X, pray for us. 

But wait! The bride of Christ is also being persecuted, not only by the secular state, but by those who claim to defend her. It’s déjà vu once again. We are repeating the early 20th century as Pope Pius X confronted modernism, the “synthesis of all heresies.” But this time the gravest threat comes, not only from theologians and scholars, but from the highest echelons in the Church, especially the pope and his Vatican offices. 

The Synodal movement has been the vehicle used to introduce novelties into the Church that undermine both dogma and discipline. Amoris Laetitia, the post synodal document from the Synod on the Family, was interpreted by the Argentine bishops, affirmed by Pope Francis, to allow Communion for couples in invalid marriages. The Amazonian Synod advanced paganism and syncretism by honoring the idol Pachamama and allowing pagan rituals in Rome’s churches. At the closing Mass a plant signifying Pachamama was even placed on the altar. The Assisi meetings and the Abu Dhabi statement magnify syncretism by treating false religions as equal to the Catholic faith which violates the First Commandment.

Déjà Vu in the World and the Church! Part 1

Think of the 2020 riots and see a repeat of mob rule during the French Revolution.

Every morning I wake up with a sense of déjà vu. Have I stepped out of a time machine taking me back to some of the worst eras in human history? Am I in the streets of 1789 Paris where a vicious, tyrannical mob, like the BLM/Antifa thugs, joins a godless government to burn and loot and kill? I listen to AOC, Chuck Schumer, and Maxine Waters and hear the angry voices of workers in Petrograd in 1917 stirred up by the Bolsheviks to kill the czar, replacing him with Communist tyrants. And I shiver over a President who increasingly sounds like them. 

In the Church I’ve become a Biblical leper, unwelcome in the parish Church unless I go to the Novus Ordo. I wonder how long it will be before more draconian measures send traditional Catholics to the catacombs. I get in the boat with St. Athanasias fleeing the heretics in a world that woke up one morning and found itself modernist. Yes, it’s déjà vu!

Evolution: No Evidence Nonsense! Let Them Illustrate "Monkeydom's Progress!"

Is this Jesus and Mary's ancestor? 
Everyone with eyes believes in "micro-evolution," a misnomer that is more accurately called "adaptation" or "natural selection." As a beekeeper, I can personally testify to the adaptation of God's little honey makers. 

When giant European and Asian hornets began invading hives, the bees "learned" how to react to the predators who can decimate their population in minutes! The little ninjas learned to surround the hornets, turn on the heat and cook the scout hornets before they could go back and bring their hornet armies. Those hives that react by immediately surrounding and attacking these giant predators survive. Those that don't, die. That is an example of adaptation and natural selection. The bee species that effectively respond to the threat survive and pass on their warrior genes. Have you ever adapted your behavior to respond to something? I know I have!

Then there is "macro-evolution." It is the perfect illustration of the philosophy of the "big lie," a term coined by Adolph Hitler in his book Mein Kampf:

In the News: Interesting Developments from Jeffrey Sachs and Cardinal Gerhard Muller

Well, this is interesting.... 

  • Jeffrey Sachs, no friend of Catholics, is actually exposing the truth about COVID and the NIH constructing viruses that are more lethal to humans -- "dangerous research." Government "creates stories." It doesn't care about the truth. "This is not real investigation." NIH showed "a lot of bad behavior." Fauci "played the bureaucratic heavy." Lancet (medical journal) said that, "There is a pathway that this could have come out of a lab for sure." The "Fauci shop has not told us the truth....We also don't know what other dangerous stuff is going on....nobody knows except the insiders." [Check out the video interview.] 
And what's going on with the latest know, the Synod on Synodality with all the input from Catholic laity around the world?

You Can Fool Some of the People All of the Time: The Jab True Believers!

Editor's comment: The true believers will ignore all the facts showing how dangerous the mRNA shots are to young men. All the bodies piling up, all the young men dropping dead on sports teams....It's all just a pandemic of coincidence; any other interpretation is a Putin plat. Nothing to see here, folks, just move along. The Kool-Aid stand is right over there. Get your free jab along with a tall, cold drink and a free burger and fries. Hey! Hey! You there. Stop talking about your nephew who collapsed during football practice the day after the shot. You're spreading disinformation. Shut up! We're calling the FBI. (Big thanks to Alex Berenson for being a super-spreader of truth.)

When a Male Dog in Kill Mode Attacks

...becomes this in 18 months.

Yesterday I read about the tragic deaths of two Tennessee children mauled by their family's two pit bulls. Here's advice which I saw put into action at the yearling barn one hot summer day in Louisiana years ago. This one action will save lives when in an instant your pet dog turns into a killer.

Most people have no idea how to handle dogs. They see a cute puppy wag its tail while rolling over to have its belly scratched and think, "O-o-o-h! So adorable! Gotta have it for the kids!" They know nothing about housebreaking a dog, feeding, grooming or "what causes that dog to growl at my child all the time?" Sadly, the number one main lesson they don't know to teach their children is to never invade a dog's space when it's eating. That food lying on the floor in the bowl that says "Fido" is its prey, albeit handed to it from a can by a person.

"More Musing, Less Amusing"

My blog partner, Susan, and I both have the same addiction. We are book-a-philes. And we demonstrate it with piles of books all over our respective houses. One of the common traits of book-o-philes is that you often find that you have purchased the same book more than once. As I get older that seems to be happening to me more often. But I don't regret it. I just have wonderful gifts to share with others. I sent my godson a copy of Peter Kwasniewski's book on the Eucharist. (Actually, I bought that extra copy on purpose.) But the other day as I was beginning Roberto de Mattei's biography of St. Pius V, I looked over at my bookcase and there another copy stared back at me. Now who would like that for Christmas?

Title # 4 - Tranny, tranny...clad as a woman - ew!

NOTE: "Cynthia" wrote the new title for this post. 

"Tranny, tranny, give me your answer do,
Are you a man-ny, clad as a woman, ew!"

Like hell he was!

Thoughts running through my mind today when I had to interact with a transgender woman:

"Trannie trannie with a big fat fanny!"
"That's the ugliest woman I've ever seen except he's not a woman."
"No one is staring at him. Do all these people really think he's a woman?"
"Think I'll point and laugh. See what happens."

Today I helped my 93 year-old friends buy a cell phone at a local store. Normally when I go in phone stores all the tech gurus are barely out of their teens. They're highly intelligent, tech savvy kids, but today, of the three techs in this particular store, one was an older man at least 50 years old and dressed as a woman. The nametag on his shirt said "Robin" so I assumed his birth name was Robert.

Feast of the Holy Rosary and the Victory at Lepanto

What a great day to reflect on the power of the rosary to win decisive battles like the victory at Lepanto in 1571. God raised up a crusader, Don Juan of Austria, to defeat the Islamic navy through the sign of the cross. Look closely at the sails and see the standard of Christianity, the cross, vs. the standard of Islam, the crescent. Chesterton, in his famous poem on the battle, depicts the crescent as the devilish smile on the face of Selim II as he calls on demonic spirits to give his forces the victory. 

This next painting shows the miraculous vision of Pope St. Pius V when Our Lady appeared and let him know the Holy League secured the victory.

We All Need a Carthusian Spirit in this World of NOISE, NOISE, NOISE!

Today is the feast of St. Bruno, founder of the Carthusians. Did you see the film, Into Great Silence? If not, today would be a great day to watch it and to read about the life of St. Bruno. Our world of chaotic, diabolical disorientation needs silence. I will be watching this movie throughout my day as I take breaks from my household duties. I love the winter scenes particularly. They remind me of the silence that descends on the world with the snow. All is blanketed in silence. 

How important is it to enter into silence? 

Consider Screwtape's letter to Wormwood in chapter 22 of the Screwtape Letters. The text on noise is below the video, but I highly recommend listening to the reading by John Cleese. You can hear the venom of Satan who prowls the world seeking whom he can devour.

Thought for the Day from G.K. Chesterton

"Once abolish the God, and the Government becomes the God."

This quote comes from Chesterton's "Chistendom in Dublin" in which he describes his experience at the 1932 Eucharistic Congress. Here's a bit:
"Lenin said that religion is the opium of the people… [But] it is only by believing in God that we can ever criticize the Government. Once abolish the God, and the Government becomes the God. That fact is written all across human history; but it is written most plainly across that recent history of Russia; which was created by Lenin…Lenin only fell into a slight error: he only got it the wrong way round. The truth is that irreligion is the opium of the people. Wherever the people do not believe in something beyond the world, they will worship the world."

Meditation for Sunday: Pray the Rosary Every Day!

Yesterday began the month dedicated to the holy rosary of Our Lady. So powerful is her 
"sword," that it has saved many nations who place themselves under her protection. You can read about some of the battles won through Mary's intercession as our twelve-star general using the "weapon" of the rosary. Visit the site below.

The linked article was written in 2020. Can anyone deny that the state of America is worse now than when it was first published? The coming midterms will reveal whether we will continue the slide into diabolical disorientation as Sr. Lucy of Fatima put it, or will begin to rebuild by defending faith and family, hearth and home. 

The best thing anyone can do to bring about the triumph of the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts is to begin with the foundation stone -- the nuclear family. God created marriage and family as the human icon of the Blessed Trinity to remind us that love is a communion of persons. Turning to God than we pray for our families that they will be faithful witnesses to God's love for the world in good times and in bad. And so:

"Dictatorship of Western elites...resembles pure Satanism" - Vladimir Putin

Much of Vladimir Putin's following speech (09/30/2022) sounds as if Archbishop Vigano wrote it. But then, Russian is Christian while the West is no longer able to hold that title.

"I want the Kiev authorities
and their true handlers in the West to hear me now."

Vladimir Putin's Presidential address on the occasion of signing the treaties on the accession of the DPR, LPR, Zaporozhye and Kherson regions to Russia. 

"Citizens of Russia, citizens of the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics, residents of the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions, deputies of the State Duma, senators of the Russian Federation,

"As you know, referendums have been held in the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics and the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions. The ballots have been counted and the results have been announced. The people have made their unequivocal choice.

Abortion and heartbeat hypocrites 

By Robert G. Marshall ( bio - articles - email ) | Sep 27, 2022

Georgia Democrat Governor candidate Stacey Abrams, who never conceded her 2018 loss in the Governor’s race, is in denial again! Abrams’ successful 2018 opponent, Gov. Brian Kemp, signed a heartbeat bill in 2019 which now protects preborn children as soon as a heartbeat can be detected. But Abrams imaginatively if ludicrously stated (9/21/22) that, “There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks…. It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”
