Many School Administrators are Parents' Enemies! They Will Pervert Your Children If You Let Them.

Schools should NEVER keep secrets from parents or enable exploitation of children. 
Chloe Cole testified to Congress about those who encouraged her to "transition."

Editor's Note: My friend, Bob Marshall, recently published the article below about the shameful acts of so-called educators in Virginia. Every Virginia parent should be outraged at the arrogance of school administrators who believe they own our children and can play with them as if they are paper dolls.

Want Clear Teaching about the Faith in a Time of Crisis? Listen to Bishop Schneider!

I recently finished Bishop Athanasius Schneider's book, The Catholic Mass which enriched my understanding of the great gift Jesus gave us in the Holy Eucharist. Now I'm reading The Springtime that Never Came, which exposes many of the challenges we face today. If you want to know why we have a crisis in the Church, Bishop Schneider's book will open your eyes to many of them.

How do you know the Deep State Drive-By Media is lying? Presume they are and you're almost always right!

This video shares just a few examples of the media carrying water for the Left by repeating and magnifying their lies. As Ronald Reagan said, "Trust, but verify." Most of the time that exercise in verification reveals that the MSM is lying. CNN and MSNBC are about as reliable as fox telling you he's a guard dog for your chicken house.

Come for Lunch and Pray the Rosary Together!

During the COVID lockdowns I began hosting bi-monthly rosary lunches with a group of Catholic women to get us all out of isolation -- laughing, chatting, and praying together. I still do them occasionally but not as frequently. They are always a blessing to me personally and fulfill a desire God has given me to practice hospitality.

This morning, reading The Imitation of Christ, I meditated on this passage:

Michael Hichborn Interview with Sr. Dede Byrne on the Euthanasia Murder of Sr. Burle.

The medical profession used to fight the grim reaper;
now they welcome him with open arms as they hasten death!

The other day I did a post about the medical murder of Sr. Phillip Marie Burle who was deliberately over medicated, declared incompetent, and then killed by Mount Carmel Senior Living in St. Charles, MO. Reading her case reminded me so much of the murders of Hugh Finn and Terri Schiavo and, more recently, teenager Grace Scharra. She was hospitalized with COVID and killed while doctors lied to her family that she was improving. Meanwhile they administered an increasingly lethal drug cocktail

Sunday Meditation: Are you Grieving? Grieve Like a Christian and Imitate Mary.

And thy own soul a sword shall pierce, that, out of many hearts,
thoughts may be revealed. (Luke 2:35)
From The Imitation of Mary:

The Believer: 

Noble Virgin, can we show Jesus true love only by following Him to Calvary and suffering with Him? Can we not also show our love in tranquility and peace?

God Has Not Abandoned Us by Fr. Bill Aitcheson

The wheat and the cockle will grow together until the harvest 

"For the time is, that judgment should begin at the house of God. But if first of us, what shall be the end of them that believe not in the gospel of God?" (1 Pt. 4:17)

Will the Virginia General Assembly become an X-rated body of Deviants?

We already have transgender Dan(ica) Roem who ran with campaign ads about how he puts on his makeup to play dress-up. He beat out long-time pro-life hero Bob Marshall, known as the "conscience of the house." Roem is running for state senate after moving to a home that encompasses both his present legislative district and the new 30th senate district that encompasses Manassas and Manassas Park. The man is flush with cash because he has garnered national support from the trans community and the Democrat party that wants Virginia so badly. God help us, he may win and move up the legislative ladder.

Thought for the day from St. Louis de Montfort: Take up your cross and follow Me!

Editor's note: I recommend this beautiful little work of St. Louis de Montfort. We all have crosses in our lives. Will we use them to become holy or run from them to our loss? "Take up your cross and follow Me," says the Lord, "for my yoke is easy and my burden light."

You Know that you are living temples of the Holy Spirit and that, like living stones, you are to be set by the God of love into the building of the heavenly Jerusalem. And so you must expect to be shaped, cut and chiseled under the hammer of the cross; otherwise, you would remain rough stones, good for nothing but to be cast aside. Be careful that you do not cause the hammer to recoil when it strikes you; respect the chisel that is carving you and the hand that is shaping you. It may be that this skillfull and loving craftsmanwants you to have an important place in his eternal edifice, or to be one of the most beautiful works of art in his heavenly kingdom. So let him do what he pleases; he loves ou, he knows what he is doing, he has had experience. His strokes are skillful and directed by love, not one will miscarry unless your impatience makes it do so.                     From A Letter to the Friends of the Cross #28

Medical Murder! Why did they kill Sr. Phillip Marie Burke, CPPS

It's important to recognize that end of life care has now become another path to murder. The latest assault is PCHETA which enlists an entire team of death dealers to convince patients to refuse even ordinary means to preserve life. [See Have you heard of PCHETA?] Many people today are being starved and dehydrated to death.

Letter from Prison from Joan Andrews Bell

Joan Andrews Bell (2nd from right) with fellow Garland 9 rescuers.

Joan Andrews Bell was among the Garland 9 carted off to jail as they await sentencing for putting their bodies between the babies and their murderer. I once rescued with Joan over thirty years ago, before she was married, on a rainy Good Friday that happened to be my birthday. There were 33 of us which seemed appropriate since Jesus suffered his final passion when He was 33. I wonder how many babies have been saved by Joan and her sacrifices. How many years has she spent in jail for rescuing babies? What a hero who glories in the cross of Christ!

"We Just Want to Be Catholic!"

I've been watching the Crisis in the Church series by the SSPX. Every episode I've watched so far is excellent and clear as a bell. These priests are incredibly well formed and understand the issues and explain in a way that's easy to understand. They go into the history of the crisis and reasonable ways for the faithful to respond.

Ann Barnhardt Reports that Frank Walker Expects to be Back Next Week!

Sunday Meditation: Prepare for Holy Communion and Receive with Joy and Reverence!

In Chapter 12 of The Catholic Mass, Bishop Athanasius Schneider offers a long quote from St. Peter Julian Eymard, Apostle of the Eucharist. One could meditate on this passage every Sunday before Mass without exhausting its richness.

The Eucharist, according to the Council of Trent, is a divine antidote that delivers us from common faults and preserves us from mortal sin....Jesus comes to us to destroy the vestiges of our sins, to counteract our evil tendencies, and to prevent the Devil from re-establishing his power over us. 

Of course, we have an obligation to approach the table of the Lord with a proper disposition, ensuring to the degree possible that we are in the state of grace so as not to commit a sacrilege by inviting the immaculate Lord into a literal cesspool. But when we are properly disposed, the Eucharist diminishes all the temptations that plague us and helps us overcome those venial sins that often become habitual and hard to root out.

I Must Follow My Conscience, "the aboriginal Vicar of Christ."

I've been watching an interview by Eric Sammons, editor of Crisis Magazine, with Fr. Jason Charron, pastor of Holy Trinity Ukrainian Catholic Church in Carnegie, PA and Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Wheeling, WV. The video is very interesting and I post it here if you are interested and have the time to watch it.

Here's a bit about following one's conscience that I found particularly relevant in light of the current crisis in the Church and questions about the authority of the pope. Fr. Charron emphasized that infallibility does not give the pope unlimited authority and that he connect compel one to "go against" a well-formed conscience:

Infallibility 101: The Pope Can't Tell You What to Eat for Breakfast!

Oatmeal is good for you!
Just eat it already!
Supposing the pope decided that every Catholic should eat oatmeal for breakfast. It's good for you and gluten free. Suppose he wrote an Apostolic Exhortation about it and the Bishops of the United States asked if they should interpret it to mean that every Catholic should order oatmeal when they breakfast at a restaurant, that ordering bacon and eggs is a gross violation of the pope's will and an act of disobedience. Suppose the pope responded that their interpretation was the only possible interpretation.

Ridiculous right?

But there are some Catholics who believe that every word and every opinion of the pope is infallible. That is a mistaken notion and the first Vatican Council, which declared infallibility, expressed exactly how limited that gift of the holy Spirit is:

No Religious Wars Here! Do the Research and Follow Your Conscience!

The more things change, the more they stay the same. 

One of the reasons I believe people advise not discussing politics or religion is that only rarely can people remain civil. In my own experience here on the blog in the comment section and in person (particularly with some traditionalists), I see a marked tendency to pull out the long swords and attack. "Die, heretic!"

Cognitive Dissonance: Pope Francis is Trying to Impose it on the Church!

Francis imposes cognitive dissonance on the flock by abusing his authority!
Blind obedience is no virtue. Know what true obedience demands. 

Most people have heard of the psychological term, "cognitive dissonance."

What is it?

Here's a concise definition: "psychological conflict resulting from incongruous beliefs and attitudes held simultaneously."

Refuting Sedevacantism! To Accept it Destroys the Papacy and Hierarchical Nature of the Catholic Church.

A few points from the video -- not my points, mind you, Fr. Tranquillo's:

  • Heresies cannot come from the Catholic Church. That is true. And we must fight them. We agree with the sedevacantists on that.

Please! Don't Follow Fr. Altman into the Labyrinth!

Fr. James Altman
I received an email from a friend today who is disillusioned with the pope. (What serious Catholic isn't?) I was sorry to see her saying she totally agrees with Fr. Altman's recent statements and decision to embrace sedevacantism. I do not! 

Perhaps I misunderstood my friend's remarks, because she ended her email saying we all need to stick to tradition. I certainly agree with that! But I truly regret what Fr. Altman. is doing even though his criticism of the pope is legitimate. He is popular and many Catholics are likely to follow him -- but where to?

In your charity please pray for Frank Walker who had a stroke last Thursday and is currently hospitalized!

I had the great pleasure of having lunch with Frank several years ago when I visited my blog partner, Susan, in Florida. What a dedicated Catholic. May God return him to us soon to continue his defense of the Catholic faith. 

Our Lady, Health of the Sick, intercede for Frank.

Did They Put Your Loved One on Remdesivir? It was a deliberate decision to kill -- FOR MONEY!

Several of those commenting on my blog are insightful and send links that are well worth checking out. That's what Aqua did on yesterday's post, Hospital Medical Murder is Real! Read about What they Did to Grace Schara. Many hospitals and their staffs have become paid assassins, hired to kill their patients instead of heal them. Love of money is the root of all evils. We see what it's done to Big Pharma and their allies in Big Government. 

Well, Big Hospital systems have now shifted from doing what benefits patients to doing what benefits their bottom line. Have all medical care givers abandoned the Hippocratic Oath and the ethics of putting patients first? Of course not. But many have. And think about the medical students in the pipeline now. They have grown up in the culture of death where everything is relative and life is cheap. Some people are considered untermenschen and disposable like the babies in the womb. And the elderly are often considered "useless eaters." When you start labeling people "vegetables," the next step is pulling them out by the roots. Hence the quick killing of the young for their organs and the old who are considered weeds taking up too much room.

"Rescue Those Being Led to the Slaughter!" Rescuing Babies in the Womb is God's Will.

Some, even in the pro-life movement, oppose the rescue movement for "breaking the law." But the reality is that a law which violates God's law is no law at all.

Masks are not only Useless, but Cause CO2 Toxicity. Masking Children is Child Abuse!

This article from Dr. Robert Malone is a must-read! The Silver Spring, MD school district imposing masks on children should immediately rescind their mandate. If they won't, the system should be sued for child endangerment. Parents, there must be lawyers among you. Develop a class action lawsuit against any school that mandates masks for children who are at little or no risk from COVID. Boycott the system until they rescind these evil and unnecessary mandates. Fight back! If I lived in Montgomery County I would offer to run a temporary classroom and offer a reading/writing/creativity camp. If enough folks did that, parents who might not otherwise be able to pull their kids out of school would have an option. 

Do not comply

Tucker Carlson is one of the Few Sane American Voices in a Cacophony of Lunacy!

Tucker in Budapest

I like to listen to Tucker Carlson because he sounds like a man with a brain and a sane outlook.  He loves our country, so he doesn't engage in the relentless "God damn America!" like the BLM/Antifa commies and Jeremiah Wright (I can't call him "Reverend.) He isn't embarrassed to talk about God. He treats others with respect instead of launching into continuos ad hominem attacks against those with whom he disagrees. He clearly loves his family and enjoys spending time with them.

Have You Heard of PCHETA? It's the death hastening "palliative care" bill. (Part 1)

PCHETA (Palliative Care and Hospice Education and Training Act (S. 2243, previously introduced in the House in 2019 as H.R. 647), is the death peddlers kill bill. We need to oppose it!


Palliative care used to be patient focused -- to help patients with chronic or terminal illnesses live as fully as possible until natural death. Often, patients assisted with palliative remedies from their primary physicians lived comfortably and fruitfully for years. They were encouraged to enjoy their families, have a positive outlook, and continue to participate in activities as much as they could. It wasn't about using every possible extraordinary means to prolong life, but to treat illnesses and offer pain relief when necessary.

Letter from Jail: Will Goodman shares his experience of being jailed for defending God's least ones.

Will Goodman in cuffs for defending the lives of the innocents

Editor's note: Five rescuers remain in jail for violating the so called FACE Act at a D.C. abortion killing center in 2020. Many political prisoners have shared their experiences of being jailed for defying the tyrants in power who treat abortion like a sacred sacrament.

Principles of The Ice Man vs Abortionist Cesare Santangelo

Parke-Davis' 1960 "Baby in a Womb"
Advertisement for Tabron

Two weeks ago while browsing at an antique market I spotted a pewter model of an unborn baby which turned out to be Parke-Davis' 1960 advertisement for Tabron, an iron supplement to help women through pregnancy. The Catholic seller gave me a good price saying he wanted it to be with a pro-life person.

It's an amazing sculpture weighing 2 pounds and is highly realistic. Looking at it, no one on the face of the earth could deny the baby's humanity. This is definitely a human person. This is not a clump of cells, not a non-human "thing". This is a living human being developing through the first nine months of life in what should be the safest place - his or her mother's womb.

This baby is about to be born. The sculpture is upside down mainly for viewing purposes, but by turning it with the cervix at the bottom we can see the baby's head positioned ready to be born. It's precisely at this stage of life that a human person can be murdered. Legally. Protected by law. An abortionist such as Cesare Santangelo cuts the baby's umbilical cord (maybe) then stabs a knife into the child's brain after which the abortion contract serial killer mutilates and disembowels his victim, methodically carving him or her up into little pieces. After that, the pieces of human body parts are either burned or gathered up, put on ice or in a jar and sold to hospitals or research centers.

(In)Justice in America for apostles who "Rescue those being led to the Slaughter"

The kangaroo court trial is over for the "Garland 9" who now face the hobnailed boot of the D.C. (in)justice system. Please pray for these courageous souls that God will strengthen them for what lies ahead. They have laid down their lives for God's "least ones." We owe them our thanks and our prayers.

The Woke Culture is Erasing Native Americans!

The handsome brave of the Redskins was replaced by a (white?) Commander?

Did you ever poke an anthill? 

The ants go scurrying around carrying the eggs, looking for a place of safety. That's the same kind of activity we see from leftists who scurry around carrying their precious culture-destroying agendas far and wide. And what is part of that agenda? Erasing just about everybody. Women are being erased with men the left thinks make better women. (After all they can't experience that dreadful "disease" called pregnancy.) White men are being erased by the bigoted accusation of being "privileged" and bearers of "white supremacy." (Tell all the white people struggling in Appalachia how privileged they are!  Read Hillbilly Elegy.)

Need a Break from the Bad News? Check out these delightful stories!

I think we could all use some inspiring stories these days. A steady diet of bad news is hard on the heart. So here's my First Friday dose of smiles. Remember the "Got milk?? ad, well here's my "Got hope?" ad. The movie Life is Beautiful shows the power of hope and humor in one of the most dismal times in history. It's fiction, but we all know there were people in the concentration camps who spread hope. In our dark culture, we can do the same.

Bishop Athanasius Schneider: A quiet voice of reason in a world of noisy insanity.

One of the most memorable scenes (at least for me) in C.S. Lewis's famous book, The Scewtape Letters, occurs when the senior devil writes this to his apprentice, Wormwood:

My dear Wormwood,

So! Your man is in love — and in the worst kind he could possibly have fallen into — and with a girl who does not even appear in the report you sent me..... I have looked up this girl’s dossier and am horrified at what I find. Not only a Christian but such a Christian — a vile, sneaking, simpering, demure, monosyllabic, mouse-like, watery, insignificant, virginal, bread-and-butter miss.The little brute. She makes me vomit. She stinks and scalds through the very pages of the dossier. It drives me mad, the way the world has worsened. We’d have had her to the arena in the old days. That’s what her sort is made for. Not that she’d do much good there, either. A two-faced little cheat (I know the sort) who looks as if she’d faint at the sight of blood and then dies with a smile. A cheat every way. Looks as if butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth and yet has a satirical wit. The sort of creature who’d find ME funny! Filthy insipid little prude....the very house she lives in is one that he ought never to have entered?...The whole house and garden is one vast obscenity. It bears a sickening resemblance to the description one human writer made of Heaven; “the regions where there is only life and therefore all that is not music is silence”.

The Garland 9 are Found Guilty and Five are immediately taken into custody!

This is the abortionist in the case of the Garland 9. Nice guy, eh?

Off With His Head: Will the Garland 9 Get the St. John Treatment (Figuratively)? Verdict May Come Today!

I've been following the trial of the Garland 9 baby rescuers in D.C. Today the jury will likely reach a decision in this incredibly manipulated show trial.

Today is also the feast of the beheading of St. John the Baptist. Hopefully the Garland 9 will see truth prevail, but whatever happens God will use it for good. The day seems Providential!

Let's examine St. John's sentence. Why was he executed? For several reasons.

  • First, he spoke the truth about sin which enraged sinners. Herodias especially could not bear the thought that John was condemning her immoral marriage to Herod. Herod, who wasn't quite lost to the truth, was fascinated by John and liked to talk to him. Every Catholic who has engaged in defending the truth on a controversial issue like abortion, has no doubt experienced this. I remember two explicit occasions when I was speaking during a rescue to pro-abortion individuals with others listening. On both occasions the surrounding friends said, "Don't talk to her!" At one rescue the young man I engaged with responded, "Shut up! I'll talk to whoever I want." In the other, the young lesbian dressed like man, ended our previous respectful conversation with a raised fist shouting, "This is what dyke looks like!" before she walked away with her "friends." Yes, indeed, the lie hates the truth and will do anything to shut it up as Herodias demonstrated by demanding John's death. I was only arrested and imprisoned.

GOP Candidates Face Off -- Any of them would be better than our Puppet President!

Scanning the news this morning I found a few intriguing articles. One was particularly pointed. Robert Knight at the Washington Times offered his take on the GOP debate. He addressed several issues worth considering:

1) Any of the GOP candidates would be better than our current America-destroying puppet president. Even most Democrats agree that Biden shouldn't be president and that's according to an AP poll, not exactly a conservative voice.

Sunday Meditation: "Come now, let us reason together." Isaiah 1:18

The way people argue on social media is so often so mindless that I decided to go back and review the rules of logic. I took down Introduction to Logic by Irving Copi and Carl Cohen from a shelf in my home library to check out the fallacies. Originally published in 1994, it's a college textbook. Interestingly Part One on reasoning begins with the quote in the headline from Isaiah, "Come now, and let us reason together." Even before I had a chance to dive into the subject of logic, I was intrigued and distracted by the quote and decided to look it up and check out the context.

Bible translations vary greatly and there are a number of different translations for this particular verse. I checked them out at Bible Hub which I often use as a reference. Most of the bibles listed use the words "reason together." I'll just list one example:
English Standard Version: “Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.

Colonel Douglas Macgregor Makes a Lot of Sense: Get Out of Ukraine NOW!

This interview is worth every minute of watching. Macgregor makes it clear that a lot of the Ukraine insanity is about money. And the warmongers are willing to destroy the country to get it. We are overreaching and spending money we don't have. "It's the uniparty....I don't see any good outcome from any of these candidates [for president]....This war is a catastrophe. The people bathing in blood are in Kyiv and Washington, not in Moscow....Ukraine is an exercise in fraud, deceit, and criminality....When is it going to stop? When are we going to help Hawaii?....this is the problem. It is America last on every level....This cannot go on; it's got to end." 

Watch the interview. Macgregor is a man of reason and wisdom. May God give us more like him. And may the American people wake up before we are "pushed over into the abyss."

My Answer to Comments on The Luminous Mysteries From August 18th

The Transfiguration
by Theophanes the Greek, 15th Century

The original post is HERE. Before I begin I want to say that no one commented on what was in the post itself. Did they read it? 

In addition, at the Transfiguration, Christ made Peter, James and John's faith stronger so that they might not lose their belief in Him during His Passion and death. "He confirmed them in their faith"...made their faith stronger, not by Confirmation of the Holy Spirit Who was to come at Pentecost, but by enabling them to see Him as the Savior who was prefigured by the Law (Moses) and the Prophets (Elijah) of the Old Testament. 

Because of the Transfiguration, Peter, James and John did not lose their faith in Him. Just as there's more than one reference to the Holy Eucharist in the entire Bible, both OT and NT - several, in fact - there's also more than one reference for Confirmation and all the rest of the Seven Sacraments.

The following is my response:

Fourteen years before I became a Catholic I hadn’t been to the protestant church of my youth in years, and hadn’t spoken to God in over a decade. One night, in complete desperation, I breathed a prayer to Him. I breathed that prayer – just one line – and He heard me. I didn’t know anything about the Trinity or the Blessed Mother or much of anything. I just knew God was our Father so I prayed to Him.

Need Hope? You Can Find it Even in Places Where Depravity Rules -- Like California!

I have a special place in my heart for St. Michael's Abbey because it was home to a dear priest friend, Fr. Leo Celano. The way we met was unusual. Back in the 1970s I was involved in some of the early rescues. In one I was chained to an abortion table at Milan Vuitch's facility. Vuitch was responsible for the change in the abortion laws in D.C. He was doing them illegally in his basement before Roe v. Wade, and just moved his shingle to the front door to continue his bloody business. He opened up a shabby office where he quipped he'd kill black babies for free.

Monday Morning This and That

Bee inspection with two 
little prospective beekeepers.
Life is filled with unexpected situations. Last week we lost one of our two beehives. There were only a few dead bees on the bottom board so it's pretty clear that they absconded. Why? Who knows? There are lots of reasons that could have caused it. We think they just couldn't find enough food and took off for greener pastures. The drought this summer has certainly affected the nectar flow. But we're sorry we didn't start feeding them early on. All was well only a week ago. So things can go South in a hurry. We immediately began to feed our remaining hive and they are emptying the sugar syrup bags as quickly as we put them in. Today I'll purchase another twenty pounds of sugar for the girls. We love beekeeping and hope to keep at it as long as we're able. We have another hive inside a wall around the pool, but decided to let them winter over there and remove them in the Spring. Hopefully they will survive. So far there are still bees going in and out the little knothole that's their entrance.

The Show Trial in D.C. against the Rescuers Has Begun! Verdict First...

George Santayana

Editor's Note: The Queen of Hearts, aka Judge Kolleen Kollar Kotelly, is presiding over the show trial of the Garland 9 arrested for standing between unborn children and their killers. In these crazy times, murdering the innocent has become a protected civil right. Defending them is a crime deserving of a long prison term. If you've never read about the genocide in the Vendee, this would be a good time to study it, because history repeats itself. The peasants of the Vendee rose up against the evil Constitutional government in France as it targeted the innocent for execution. Today the knives are busy again against the innocent in the womb. Read the report below on the show trial in progress in D.C. Judge KKK is channeling the Communist and Fascists judge of WW II and the cold war. There is nothing new under the sun and, as George Santayana said, "Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it!"

Time Out for a Break! Sometimes Ya Just Deal with it....

....And we had one, a break that is, literally when a powerful gust of wind caught an umbrella and shattered the tempered glass on top of an aluminum table around our pool.  Little bits of glass everywhere! Two of my five sisters are visiting this week and they helped me clean up with brooms and dustpans and then vacuuming with the shop vac. Larry was out and we didn't want to leave the mess for him to deal with when he got home. Fortunately, only a few small bits went into the pool. That's on the cleanup list for today -- a good thorough pool vacuuming.

Fourth Luminous Mystery - Confirmation: A Vision of a Vision

The Transfiguration
by Ivanka Demchuk
Something was missing from the Joyful, Sorrowful and Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary, mainly the earthly life of Jesus and the founding of His Church with the Seven Sacraments he established for the salvation of souls. Therefore, John Paul II filled in the absent 33 years with the Luminous Mysteries which are the Seven Sacraments.

The first, second and fifth Luminous Mysteries are self explanatory. They are the Sacraments of Baptism (The Baptism of Jesus in the Jordan), Holy Matrimony (The Wedding at Cana) with the fifth mystery being both Holy Orders and Holy Eucharist (The Institution of the Eucharist).

God Bless Detransitioner Chloe Cole!

Ideological trans scientists, like abortionists, are predators who will mutilate and destroy children's bodies for money. We no longer have to warn our kids only about perverts in the park. They now inhabit our doctors' offices, hospitals, schools, and libraries. Sad times! Pray for Chloe Cole and all the detransitioners. Like the post aborted women who regret their abortions, these people are planting the seeds of wrath that will choke out the poisonous plants destroying our culture.

Monday Morning Meandering!

  • Start The Week Monday Quotes
  • What a week. My husband and I are in the middle of soap opera. It seems to be a compilation of several based on their titles. I never watched the soaps. What started out as Days of Our Lives has morphed into General Hospital because of a fall by my elderly sister. (Yikes! Elderly? She's three and a half years younger than I am.) I took a pretty serious fall about a month ago myself, but suffered no ill effects except a little soreness. Unfortunately, my sister broke the ball in one of her hips, so she is scheduled for surgery. Prayers would be much appreciated for both her and her medical team.

Sunday Meditation: Let us accept all our sufferings as a mortification for our eternal salvation.

Many of the meditations in the Benedictus Latin Mass prayer book share writings of Prosper Louis Pascal Guéranger (1805-1875).  A French priest and Benedictine monk, Dom Guéranger was Abbot of the monastery of Solesmes for almost 40 years. He also established the French Benedictine Congregation after the French Revolution. The architects of the Revolution. with their "cult of reason," did everything possible to destroy the Catholic Church in France.

The D.C. Kangaroo Court Against Rescuers is in Session....

Editor's note: This post has been updated and corrected since it was NOT a Red Rose Rescue as I originally thought, but a traditional rescue to block the killers from their victims.

We have returned to the days of the Nazi sham trials with judges very much like Roland Freisler, the man responsible for executing anyone who dared to object to the Nazi murder machine. 

Time to Get Red-pilled about the Government's COVID Response! It Had Nothing to Do with Public Health Concerns!

Editor's Note: This essay is a must read to understand the vicious and deliberate goals of the COVID hysteria. I've added my comments in red. We have reached a red-pilled moment where anyone with eyes to see can recognize the evil agenda of the Left. COVID targeted the elderly and the poor especially, those considered useless eaters by the globalist elitists. Read the essay and refuse to ever let the government convince you that they are making these decisions out of humanitarian concern for you and your family. The same is true of the climate change hoax. Wake up and recognize the truth! Frightened, people are easier to control. 

There Was No Pandemic (essay)

By Denis G. Rancourt, Ph.D. June 22, 2023

This is radical.

The essay is based on my May 17, 2023 testimony for the National Citizens Inquiry (NCI) in Ottawa, Canada, my 894-page book of exhibits in support of that testimony, and our continued research.

Of Soap Operas, Duties, and Charity!

Is your life like a soap opera? What will happen next?

I've come to the conclusion that everybody on the planet lives in a soap opera. And, in fact, that's probably the reason soap operas are popular. Focusing on the problems of your favorite soap characters takes your mind off your own personal, homegrown drama for at least a little while.

What a disappointment Mike Pence has turned out to be! Worthy to be President? NOT!

I had high hopes for Mike Pence, but what a pathetic individual he's turned out to be. His discussion with Tucker Carlson about January 6th and the war in Ukraine illustrated how much he is a creature of the deep state. Do we really need another go along with the uniparty in D.C. candidate? I don't think so! Mike Pence is about as presidential as the local dog catcher. Time to wrap it up and go home, Mike. The X post (formerly Twitter) below is from General Keith Kellogg including the banner for Trump. I'm on the fence at present, but I certainly agree with General Kellogg about the unfitness of Pence to sit at the desk in the oval office. Retirement for Mike Pence is on the horizon and no loss to the republic. 

How Many Illegal Labs Are Out There Creating the Next Pandemic?

This is horrifying! How many of these illegal labs are operating around the country? Keep your eyes wide open, folks, and demand answers from public officials. Remember East Palestine, Ohio. The first video is a press conference about the situation. The second is a short news report. You might want to watch the second first.

Why Would Anyone Not Believe in the Real Presence? Just Look at How WYD Treated Our Blessed Lord!

It's interesting to read the comments from priests on Twitter justifying the abomination of placing the master of the universe in aplastic tub from the hardware store and plastic bowls from Walmart (or wherever). Oh...but think of the logistics! What else could they do? Yes, I saw priests saying that in comments!

Are You a Fake Catholic or Do You Live a Truly Catholic Life?

It's not enough to prance around as a "model Catholic" while you promote sins that cry to heaven for vengeance. We need to examine those areas of our lives where our actions conflict with the teachings of the Church. "You need to focus on being a good Catholic...focus on your life....You cannot allow yourself to become bitter toward those around you....In His Church there will be two kinds of people....children of God and children of the devil."

Am I faking it? I may be able to fool the people around me, but I can never fool God. So am I the wheat or the weeds? A good examination of conscience: ask every evening, "How was I wheat today and how was I the weeds?"

How Many Heretics with Wrong-Headed Philosophies Do You Know?

Anyone who's read the blog for a time knows I'm a great fan of G. K. Chesterton. Our Chesterton book club just read Heretics, a rather surprising title for a book that has absolutely nothing to do with religious heretics like Martin Luther or Arius, etc. In Heretics, Chesterton criticizes his contemporaries for their wrong-headed philosophies. Rudyard Kipling, George Bernard Shaw, H.G. Wells, etc. all get the sting of Chesterton's barbed wit. He also takes on groups, like the yellow press and those who make science their god. It's a fascinating group of essays.

Expose the Coordinated Effort to Mutilate Kids! They're All In!

Trailer for Gender Transformation: the Untold Realities

The Epoch Times has a documentary unveiling the deliberate, coordinated effort to seduce and mutilate kids with the siren song of "gender fluidity." They're all in: the education establishment, the media, the politicians, the corporate CEOs, the Hospitals and unethical psychiatrists and medical doctors. They're all in!

The Devil’s Last Stand: Attack the Family; Attack Our Lady Part 2

See Part 1....

Passion of the Christ: Mary vs. Satan

Satan's hatred of Our Lady extends to all the daughters of Eve who reflect her image! And so we move to the What is a Woman? era. Nobody knows! Just as men try to erase God with the claim that He doesn’t exist or, if He did once exist, He is now dead; women, who mirror the God-bearer Mary, must be annihilated as well. “Our tainted nature’s solitary boast,” as Wordsworth described Mary must be cancelled along with all her daughters. Women are unimportant and easily replaced. A man can be a better woman than a real woman. A trans woman runs, bikes, and swims faster; jumps higher, and advertises cosmetics and Nike sportswear better than any real woman could.

The Devil’s Last Stand: Attack the Family; Attack Our Lady Part 1

THE BATTLE IN HEAVEN -- Pieter Bruegel the Elder 16th century

“And there was a great battle in heaven, Michael and his angels fought with the dragon, and the dragon fought and his angels.... And that great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, who seduceth the whole world; and he was cast unto the earth,and his angels were thrown down with him.” [Apocalypse 12] 

What started the “battle in heaven?”

More on 5th Generation Warfare

Yesterday I shared Dr. Robert Malone's talk from the Frontline Doctors' White Coat Summit in Washington, D.C. last month. He warned listeners about the dangers of 5th generation warfare (5GW), an attack that targets the minds of the public, manipulating our very thoughts in order to control us. It was an interesting and eye-opening window into the evils we daily face from a faceless globalist cabal.

I began considering events during the past few years that were manipulated and distorted to achieve apparent woke goals. Were these events demonstrating 5th generation warfare?

The COVID Fear Mongering Was Deliberate! We've All Been Lied To (and) Gaslit!

A few days ago the Frontline Doctors held their third White Coat Summit to call out the lies and misinformation that led to millions of people being systematically killed in the COVID epidemic. It was a death toll absolutely unnecessary and deliberately propagated by immoral gain of function research making viruses more easily spread and more lethal and then banning life-saving protocols in favor of deadly ones.

Defend the Faith from the Foxes in the "Henhouse!"

My husband and I go out every night to supervise our chickens while they free range for an hour. We used to let them out all day until one disappeared. When we saw a fox later prowling around the coop, we decided that poor Pidgie ended up in the fox's belly. Now we are the evening guardians while we pray our rosary and do some spiritual reading together. (Our evening activity is a metaphor for what the laity must do these days to defend the flock from the foxes and wolves invading the coop. Unfortunately, many who remain theologically true shepherds often will not act out of fear of reprisal. Thank God for the few, like Bishop Strickland, who will.)

Nobel Scientist is a "Climate Change Denialist!"

Pictures like this are part of the fear-mongering to hype the hysteria.

The latest hand-wringing terror talk is in progress. The U.N. head, António Guterres, recently stated, "The era of global warming has ended; the era of global boiling has arrived.” And, of course, mankind is to blame and if we don't take immediate action the end is near. (Source) Gosh, how many times have we heard that?

A Powerful Conversion Story: The Traditional Latin Mass Led Him Into the Church

Protestant seminarian finds home in Catholic Church through social media connection

I remember a friend once telling me about a man she was dating. He attended RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) and did, indeed, become a Catholic if my memory serves. They didn't end up getting married, but my friend told me how he responded to the classes. "It's not much different from my Protestant faith." 

What does that say about the instruction? Nothing good!

Flee the Cities is Biblical. Is This One of the Reasons?

Jason Aldean's video went viral after the Left went berserk and accused him of racism. (Yawn!) That accusation is getting really really old. I like country music, and I give him two thumbs up for this song pushing back against the Left's violence, extremism, and police hatred.
