Sunday Meditation: How God Provided Priests in Front Royal during the COVID Lockdowns and Led Them to Stay

It was all in God's providence: "Fifty accidents happened at the same time." Fr. Reuter showed up for "one Sunday only" to offer Mass in Virginia for the Marlboro chapel since Maryland had already shut down. Watch the video. It's amazing the number of providential events that led to the founding of the SSPX chapel in Linden. May God be praised!

Can the Devil Tell if Mary Is a Woman?

Woman of the Apocalypse
Revelation 12

When the Blessed Mother isn't busy beating Lucifer back with a club or stomping on top of him while sticking a sword down his throat, she's the sweet doe-eyed mother of Christ, gently cradling him in her arms. Lucifer isn't fooled by her sweetness since he's the recipient of her motherly no-prisoners taken, sword-wielding protection over the Child Jesus.

Satan knows Mary's power. He hates her. Wants to destroy her, kill her. He will not serve God because of her since he wanted to be the highest of all created beings...of all God's creatures he wanted to be the highest. He wanted to be Mary! But God chose a humble human woman to be the Christ Bearer. The indignity of it all! Lucifer's "I will not serve!" not only means a rebellion against God but also an intrinsic hatred of the Blessed Mother. Of women.

Fascinating Article at Breitbart about FOX Dumping Tucker Carlson and Dan Bongino -- They Weren't Fired!

Breitbart has a fascinating article that describes what may really be behind Murdoch's ouster of Tucker Carlson and Dan Bongino at FOX, and it rings true. 

"They All Swarmed Around You Like Vultures!" Matt Walsh to "Jazz" Jennings

"Jazz" Jennings posted a tweet calling out Matt Walsh for hating LGBTQ people because of his criticism of what's been done to Jazz, mostly by his mother. Watch the initial video here. Jazz responded and here's Matt's second video. 

You can agree or disagree with Matt Walsh, love him or hate him. I'm a bit ambivalent, because I think sometimes he lacks charity. I think calling the shooter in Tennessee a "monster" is a judgment for God. What she did was monstrously evil, but only God can judge what led her to that evil act and the state of her soul.

Thought for the Day: Politics Can Not Save Us

Demented Joe has announced his reelection plan. I use "his plan" advisably since we all know he couldn't find his way out of a paper bag. The video he released is a so-called cheer for "freedom" but not freedom for all. Once again, Democrats demonize half the country, the "Maga estremists," anyone who doesn't support the Democrats' evil principles.

The West, as Deserved, is Rapidly Losing World Hegemony

"With countries that have nothing further to offer than more Marxist Communism, triumph belongs to countries that bring with them treasures of the future." In other words, the West (15% of the world's roughly 200 countries) is finished while the rest of the world (85%) rises. 

“Without moral stamina, without public virtue and public spirit, without self-sacrifice, it is impossible to retain the front rank, as it would have been impossible without these to achieve that position. A race (country) that does not continue to possess these qualities, in the very highest degree, is doomed to failure.” -  David Mills

Is This Why Tucker Was Fired?

Interesting Day for Don Lemon and Tucker. Carlson

I laughed when I saw that Don Lemon was fired from CNN today. A loser station fires a loser employee. No loss there.

Then I saw that Tucker Carlson has parted ways with Fox. Wow! Good-bye Fox as far as I'm concerned. Tucker Carlson Tonight was the only show I watched. My husband figures Fox tried to tell Tucker what he can and cannot say. Maybe. He seems pretty independent and with his following he can go independent. 

What a day! 

It will be interesting to see what happens next.

I had a horrible thought while I was fixing dinner. what if Don and Tucker start a show like the old Hannity and Colmes. I shocked my husband by saying out loud. "NO! NO! It's too horrible to think about!"

Not to worry, though. My husband says it will never happen. I sure hope he's right. But I'll miss Tucker tonight. Guess I'll read a book or wash my hair.

If You Are Married or Egaged, Watch This Excellent Video.

I stumbled on this video yesterday while looking for something else. But I'm always interested to listen to both Kennedy Hall and Fr. Ripperger.

Sunday Meditation: Make Friends with the Saints! Then Imitate Their Love for the Least Ones!

Most days I read Butler's Lives of the Saints as part of my morning prayer. I usually check out the main saint of the day. Often five are six are listed and I just browse the others. Yesterday's entry focused on two pope martyrs from the 2nd and 3rd centuries, Saints Soter and Caius. Wouldn't it be a blessing to have a pope today willing to die for the faith while defending the sheep instead of persecuting the sheep by attacking the faith. So sad.

I've decided to immerse myself in one saint at a time for awhile. My first choice is Padre Pio. I'm on my second book and I absolutely love him! Talk about a man who suffered for the flock. Everyone who ever went to him for confession became his spiritual child. Some of them received visits from him by bi-location even before they met. When they later travelled to the Capuchin monastery at San Giovanni Rotondo they recognized the unknown monk who had appeared to them with messages of hope.

It's Up to You: Choose to Be Happy!

This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

I used to know a woman at my parish in Alexandria, VA who was always grumpy, always complaining, and as rude as could be to those around her. I'll call her Grumpy. She was elderly and no doubt had medical issues and other problems. But she wasn't, as far as I know, mentally ill or suffering from dementia. She just seemed to revel in being miserable and spreading her misery to others. And then she wondered why people avoided her. It was a head-shaker. Really, Grumpy, you treat people with disdain and rudeness and wonder why they don't want to spend time with you? Hello? Reality calling!

On Useless Arguments

 Having blogged for many years, not to mention spending time on social media, my rueful observation is that an incredible amount of time is spent in pointless (and boring) arguments. I post almost all comments except from a few banned trolls and slanderous attacks. I won’t, for example, post general attacks on all priests as abusers. Yes, tragically, there are bad priests, but most are sincere men working for the salvation of souls. 

Thought for the Day from St. Peter of Alcantra

St. Peter of Alcantra was a contemporary of St Theresa of Avila. What a difficult time for the Church, the mid 16th century. Much like ours today with so many rebelling against the truth and rejecting the faith. St. Peter responded by living in habitual union with God. He makes me think of Padre Pio.

Thought for the Day: Read Daniel 3

I love the litany of thanksgiving in Daniel 3. And what a time of year to pray it. Every time I go outside I glory in all the gifts of the Spring. Despite the darkness of our culture, the Lord continues to lift our hearts with the beauty of His creation. All the earth testifies to the truth that God made the world and calls us, as the apple of His eye, to worship and give Him thanks. Below is Daniel 3, from verse 53 to 87. But I invite you to recite your own litany as you go about your daily chores, especially outside. Here's the beginning of my personal litany:

Blessed art thou, O Lord, in the redbuds, the dogwoods, the bluebells, the daffodils, the dandelions and all the flowering plants and trees; praise and exalt Him above all forever.

Exorcist calls Nefarious the best film on exorcism! Go see it!

I saw the film today and it should earn an Oscar for Sean Patrick Flanery who plays the possessed criminal.

COVID Jab: The Killer that Keeps on Giving!

The true believers and trolls who haunted my blog whenever I wrote about the serious damage of the COVID jabs have gone strangely silent. Well...not so strange, since the facts are proving that their hysterical reactions were ignorant and unfounded. 

Instead of listening to the many voices of medical professionals urging caution, they lined up like lemmings for the jab and proudly filled their social media pages with the "I am vaxed" badge. Meanwhile, they condemned as irresponsible those of us who were not so eager to be guinea pigs for Big Pharma.

It's Divine Mercy Sunday: Please Pray St. Faustina's Chaplet for Our Poor Church

Guest Post: Was Jorge Bergoglio St. Faustina's Greatest Cross?

By David Martin

On December 17, 1936, the renown mystic St. Faustina, known for her role in establishing the devotion to the Divine Mercy, penned two entries into her diary which warrant close examination today. Entries 823 and 824 appear to be closely related and occur chronologically without interruption. Without further ado, the first part of her statement [entry 823] is as follows.

Some Things Are Worth Repeating: Embrace the Eucharist and Make Frequent Holy Hours

I wrote this article in 2016, long before COVID or the disaster of the Biden administration, or the BLM/Antifa riots, etc. It remains in my opinion the most import thing any of us can do to fight the growing darkness and diabolical evil engulfing us and our children. It also represents the greatest prescription for hope. How can we fear, when we embrace Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. "Fear not, little flock, for it has pleased your Father to give you a kingdom." Luke 12:32

Fr. Tom Collins: The Injustice of the World's Secularist Social Justice!

It is worth noting the secularist “social justice” agenda, widely supported by a number of
“faithful Catholics in good standing” includes, among other things:

The Epoch Times Inspires a New Hobby!

Mia Huckman with her winning painting, titled “Our Last Roundup.” (Courtesy of Mia Huckman)

I love the Epoch Times! I especially appreciate the section on Life and Tradition. It is filled with articles on art, architecture, poetry, history, in fact, on anything related to culture. Today I was reading the March 8th edition. I'm always behind but generally stack up the weekly editions until I have a chance to read them. They've led me to a new hobby, "clip and send." I send many art articles to a darling granddaughter in Texas, a high school senior with a real talent for art. I've sent her articles on classic art, on an illustrator who depicted charming little fairies, and recently a story about a high school senior who won a rodeo art competition that led to her painting from last year's contest selling at auction for a quarter of a million dollars. Wow!

Every night the Political Prisoners from January 6th Sing the Star Spangled Banner

The spirit of the founding fathers who fought against the tyranny of England lives on in the hearts and minds of these patriots falsely incarcerated by an evil, weaponized Department of Injustice. Pray for them and send your guardian angels to pray with them as well. These people are the early victims of the police state, but it will eventually come for many others, maybe me and you.

What a Difference a Year or Two Makes! Will the Real COVID Killers Please Stand Up.

Doctors Around the World Say It's Time to Stop the Shots 

Military finds higher incidence of heart problems after COVID shot.
More info at Virus Impact

COVID was a terrible disaster and a tragedy -- but it didn't have to kill as many people as it did. There were effective treatments that rescued the infected from the jaws of death, even those who were especially vulnerable. Some doctors who worked in nursing homes didn't lose a single patient. Why? Because they were willing to ignore Fauci and use "unapproved" protocols that limited the ability of the virus to replicate, reduced inflammation, and boosted immune response. What a novel idea! Treat the disease!

This is Why they gave Big Pharma Liability Protection. They Can Kill with NO Consequences!

Fr. Tom Collins: Kenosis Theology of Pope Francis Explains a Lot!

There is a lot of confusion and concern among orthodox Catholics concerning some of the statements and actions of Pope Francis since he began his pontificate. However, if we look at these by embracing the premises of the ever-evolving kenosis theology, they do make sense.

Truth Speaks to the Heart - An Email from a Friend

Editor's Comment: I received this touching email from a friend after she read Two Clear-Sighted Articles about Archbishop Lefebvre and the SSPX Controversy which I posted a few days ago. She was originally concerned about my attending the SSPX Masses, but has since changed her mind. Why? Because she does the research. She is a persistent truth-seeker and I'm privileged to call her friend.

Guest Post: A Paradoxical Reversal - The Crisis in the Church

by Edward Kryn

As a theologian Pope Benedict XVI looking at the fruits of the SSPX (Matt. 7:15-20) and bearing in mind his preoccupation with the concept of the BRIDE FALLING AWAY from the institutional church, felt the need to lift any possible excommunication of the four SSPX bishops once he realized the SSPX had saved the Traditional Latin Mass and therefore the BRIDE represented as the church during 50 years of experimentation in the church of Vatican II. All this remembering that other traditional orders like the FSSP, ICKSP and Priestly Union of Saint Jean-Marie Vianney, sprang from the SSPX saving the Traditional Latin Mass that was protected by Pope Pius V bull Quo Primum with incurring the wrath of Almighty God should anyone try to counter Pius V.

Fr. Tom Collins: Why Jesus Had to Undergo the Crucifixion

One of the most harsh yet central teachings of Christianity is that, in order to save us, Jesus had to undergo all the torments of His Passion and Death (Lk 24:26).

We Knew Church Militant Would Implode: "It's a Sinking Ship!"

Employees fired, no severance pay, told to turn to the government. And where was the boss? He went into hiding and worked from home, so he wouldn't have to deal with the fallout from the firings which were devastating to his employees. What a cowardly response!

Fr. Tom Collins: The Seamless Garment of Evil

Triumph of the Virtues - Andrea Mantegna 1502

Editor's note: When Mary appeared at Fatima, she told the children that more people go to hell for sins of the flesh than any other reason. It was clear from her overall message stressing purity and modesty that she largely was referring to the deadly sin of lust. And it's easy to see how that sin, in all its ugliness while calling itself "love," has transformed society into a coarse, vulgar, and animalistic jungle. Fr. Tom links the "sins of the flesh" into what is essentially a garden of vice or the seamless garment of evil. We need the angels, led by St. Michael and our 12-star general, the Blessed Mother, to drive out these evil vices and restore the garden of virtue. Pray the rosary that we may see it!

What Ukraine's History Teaches Us about BLM and Antifa and January 6th!

I've been watching the video Susan posted the other day called Ukraine on Fire. What an eye-opener. It dispels the notion that there are no Nazis in the Ukraine. The Neo Nazi extremists are legion, they are integrated into the government, and have been fomenting violence in the area for decades. Since the "Orange Revolution" in the early 2000s fascist groups, some of whom worked with our own CIA, have infiltrated crowds to achieve the same results as the January 6th protests. And watching the mob violence from the Maidan protests brought back scenes from the BLM/Antifa riots.

There is nothing new under the sun!

There's a Difference Between the Image of God and the Likeness of God

Then God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness...So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them, saying Increase and multiply and fill the earth. (Genesis 1:26-28)

Recently President Biden said that transgender people are made in the image of God. While in transgender people the image of God is vastly distorted, that image of God still exists, therefore President Biden's statement is correct, but only partially. The second part of "being made in the image of God", that is, also "being made in the likeness of God", is missing from the White House's statement, and therein lies the not so complicated comprehension of whether a person, made in God's image, represents being made in the likeness of God as well when they're in a state of mortal sin. 

Let's Hope Glenn Beck is not a Prophet! Things aren't looking good if he's right!

Unfortunately, Glenn Beck is often absolutely on target. Which means we all better be on our knees preparing like the people of Nineveh for some very rough times. God often uses chastisement to bring us to our knees, so let's not fear it, but do what the people of Nineveh did. Now if only dear leader would be the one to put on sackcloth and ashes and call for the people of the United States to do penance. I don't think we'll see that sad to say. No matter what happens, keep the faith!

Guest Post: It's Time to Restore All Things in Christ

The motto of Pope St. Pius X was "To restore all things in Christ." Bring it on, Lord!

By Greg Diefenderfer

Looking back over the past 120 years at the tumultuous 20th century, two inflection points seem to stand out. One was World War I, which began 30 years after Pope Leo’s locution in 1884 and 3 years before Fatima. “The Great War” started the carnage that would eventually kill over 100 million souls. The second was the middle of the 20th century, when, seemingly out of nowhere, western Christian society started to go crazy. Compare anything you wish – music, TV, movies, education, clothing and dress, politics, economics, sexuality, your choice – and everything started deteriorating. We went from Doris Day and Frank Sinatra to Jefferson Airplane and Jimi Hendrix, from Leave it to Beaver to All in the Family. And so on. What happened?

Two Clear-Sighted Articles on Archbishop Lefebvre and the SSPX Controversy

Editor's Comment: What confusing times we live in, eh! As someone once said to me, "We are all doing our lousy best." While I would modify that to say, "People of good will are doing their lousy best," I think it is a true statement as we travel through this "valley of tears." Let's face it, we're in chaos!

More Violence from Leftist Thugs: They Call Others Fascist While They Engage in Fascist Attacks.

This has become common on college campuses. Violent protestors shut down messages they don't want to hear. Instead of listening and debating like civilized individuals, they will scream and shout down others and even assault them. Any parent with a student at VCU or any other university that allows this should demand answers. Why are they paying tuition to a brainwashing institution that allows only one side to speak. And what kind of "security" lets the lawless who are breaking the rules set the agenda while "detaining" those with a legal right to be there. If we had a kid at VCU that would be the last semester we'd pay for. The violent attack on this pro-life group happened on March 29th. Were there any charges brought against those who perpetrated the assault? Two were cited: one for assault and one for disorderly conduct. For more info on this go here.

Were the 1993 Stations of the Cross with a Female Jesus an Early Push for "Transgenderism" in the Church?

Mother Angelica was hopping mad about it. And in retrospect, was this deliberate abomination an early move to soften us up to accept the radicalism of "gender fluidity" that's grown in the past thirty years to become a major threat against our children?

Don't be silly, you are probably thinking. The "transgender" movement is recent, only the past few years.
