Who are the Domestic Terrorists Again? You know...the ones organizing insurrections around the country?

How about the machete-wielding former Hunter College professor, Shellyne Rodriguez? She was so out of control, she chased this reporter and his colleague out of the building and down the street. I hope charges are brought. Take a good look at her. This is the face of hate!

June Used to Be Devoted to the Sacred Heart of Jesus...

It was also the month of weddings and Father's Day as Robert Knight points out in his column yesterday. What does it stand for now in this age of secular wokism?

An Epilogue to Aqua's Conversion Story

As members of the Communion of Saints,
we all have stories to tell of God's grace working in our lives!

If you haven't read the original posts about Aqua's conversion, I highly recommend them. They point to the amazing way God works in the lives of his children. I would happily publish other conversion stories from our readers. Maybe Susan will share hers.

Aqua's Conversion Story (Part 2): The Joy of Children!

Read Part 1 of Aqua's conversion story here. 

How did our new Catholic Faith *CHANGE* anything for us, physically, specifically in our actions and behaviors? I have picked one obvious and lasting example. Everyone *should* have their own examples to tell, because everyone *should* be changed after conversion to the religion of Heaven itself in meaningful, practical ways here on earth.
For me, it was Life issues.

The Miracle of Conversion, A Mystery of God's Grace: Aqua's Story (Part 1)

16th century painting of St. Paul on the road to Dmamascus

Editor's comment: One of my regular readers, Aqua, left a comment about his conversion that intrigued me. So I asked him if he would tell his story. He graciously accepted and I offer it here in two parts. To see God's grace at work reminds us that He, indeed, is our rock and our salvation. May God bring us all to conversion every day and fill us with the joy of living in His presence. Convert us, Lord, and make us Yours.

Aqua's Conversion Story

I was asked to say a few words about my Catholic conversion story, and how it changed me from who I was to who I am. So ... here it is.

They're after the Children, but This Mom is Pushing Back!

This 32 minute video is a goldmine of information about the diabolical gender recruitment of kids that is aided and abetted by schools, woke psychologists, and tech enabling. [Read the transcript at the Daily Signal.] One mom in the comments describes how a 32 year old man was grooming her 14 year old son through an Xbox contact. Read it below.* A psychologist concerned about what's happening also commented.**

Parents, even if you are homeschooling and control media you need to realize that other parents are not and your children are influenced by their peer group. This mom offers some sound advice. She started the group Our Duty to help parents of children sucked into the gender cult. Her testimony needs to be spread far and wide. And, yes, it is your duty to protect your children from the diabolical movements threatening them.

There's a Message in the Medium: The Novus Ordo Encourages Snickers!

I thought idiotic antics at the Novus Ordo couln't get any sillier, but this blurb from proved me wrong. And to think the clown-in-chief was a bishop. Shame, shame, shame on you, Bp. Lowe.

New Zealand: The Content of the Novus Ordo? Snickers...

The Presiding Bishop of New Zealand, Steve Lowe of Auckland, wore a pallium-like lei made of Snickers bars (sic) during a May 19 Novus Ordo Eucharist in his cathedral. Leis are traditional garlands made from flowers or shells. The occasion was a Eucharist for Liston College, a Catholic school for boys aged 12 to 18. Some of them were baptised and confirmed during the Snickers show. If nothing else, Lowe was very effective in conveying to the boys that the Novus Ordo is a bad joke.

We Can't Hide In the Bunker! We are Called to Serve.

There's an interesting article at OnePeterFive today by a mom of six children. She grew up with the underground Traditional Latin Mass and describes her grandmother as a staunch defender of the TLM, but one who never ran from a fight or stopped trying to influence the culture and community she lived in.

Sunday Meditation: What is Truth?

Do you remember who asked, "What is truth?" A cynical politician who, above all else, was concerned about keeping his position by not rocking the boat and upsetting his tyrant emperor.

Celebrate Friendship!

 We’re on our way to a get together with a group of aging square dancers some of whom we’ve known since our children were babies. This morning during my prayer time I went through my rosary box filled with funeral cards, ordination and anniversary mementoes, and handwritten prayer requests. The box is almost full. Soon the cover will hardly close. So many friends one collects over the years!

This Makes Me Furious! 6'3" Transgender "Woman" Allowed to Terrorize Sorority Girls!

Transgender "Women" are more and more a mafor threat to biological females! Men pretending to be women have raped women in women's jails. (Check
here and here.) They can oggle and assault women and little girls in women's restrooms, pool  facilities, and department store dressing rooms. (Check here and here.) And now a group of sorority sisters describes their fear since they were forced to allow a huge man pretending to be a woman to join Kappa Kappa Gamma and have the run of the sorority house.

If You're on a "Hate Group" List, You're Probably Doing Something Right

Southern Poverty Law Center's 2021 "Hate Map"

The radical leftists at the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) have a record of vilifying Christians. If you dare to even imply that sodomy is wrong.....well.....obviously you are a hate-filled homophobe. If you demur over drag queen story hours and cutting off the genitals of little children or keeping pornography out of the library -- you are a book-burning, violent fascist.

The Pope Made a True Statement! No kids, no hope!

Earlier this month at a conference on the Italian birth rate, Pope Francis said, “The birth of children, in fact, is the main indicator for measuring the hope of a people. If few are born it means there is little hope. And this not only has repercussions from an economic and social point of view but also undermines confidence in the future.”

Having a Bad Day? Increase Your Prayer Time!

I took a pretty significant fall on Monday while I was weeding in my Mary garden. I'm still not sure how I did it. I was turning to put some clover in the bucket and lost my balance. I came down on my right arm scraping it up against the top of the wall. Then I hit my left leg on the wall as I went over and landed flat on my back on the brick pool deck. Quite a thud!

Sometimes I think we're living in the Matrix....

 ...and that everything we're fed by the secular world is a poisonous lie!

In the 1984 world of 2023 everything is upside down and inside out. When you hear something described as a "conspiracy theory" by the mainstream media, you can pretty much know it's probably true. Look at all the evidence coming out about the Kennedy assassination. The powers that be told us it was a one man hit job by Lee Harvey Oswald. Then Oswald's assassination by Jack Ruby, the man with links to the mob, was also a one man hit job. Not so says Robert Kennedy, Jr. whose describing details about the Dallas shooting and his father's belief that the CIA was involved. They claim not, but the evidence is still under wraps. Why? What are they hiding? As more information leaks out, combined with the evidence of government involvement in January 6th....well....draw your own conclusions.

The Pope's at it Again. Traditional Catholics Have a "Nostalgic Disease!"

The pope's statement reminds me of the pro-abortion people who called pregnancy a disease. They hated the babies. Pope Francis appears to hate what the Church celebrated for over 1500 years! It's like a person who repudiates his family and all his ancestors because he's embarrassed by their language and customs. So sad!

Get Your Hands Off Our Kids! We Don't Need Your Big Catch-Up!

You no doubt remember the famous scientist who saved so many lives during COVID and taught so much true science to us poor benighted idiots and science deniers.


My new neighbor

The current state of everything trickles down to our individual lives on a daily basis. It happens to all of us now. This is my life in the past week:

1)  An old racing friend called aghast about the 7 horses that died at Churchill Downs "during the Kentucky Derby". I had to calm her down with the actual facts of the situation. Seven horses did not die during the Derby. No horses died during the Derby, but 2 horses did die on Derby Day in races before the Derby. The other five horses died in the week following up to the Derby, two of which were suspicious deaths reported by a single trainer (trying to collect insurance money?) who has since been suspended. One other horse's death happened during training, not in a race. Misinformation spreads from erroneous MSM headlines and intentionally confusing articles bent on misleading the public with innuendo and lies. PETA will be on the warpath (actually they have been for years) trying to shut down horse racing merely from believing MSM headlines intentionally written to obfuscate facts.

Tucker's Back!

Of Internet Trolls and Censorship

I got another book-length comment from a troll yesterday which pushed me over the edge on suffering fools, an expression my dad sometimes used which I never liked. I take seriously the biblical admonition not to call your brother "raca." But, really, there are so many out there trolling the internet and enjoying the power of anonymous insults!

Monday Morning Musings.

Beach buddy!

It's been a busy few weeks. I spent five days in April with my blogging partner, Susan, who lives in Florida. We met in North Carolina at her daughter's cabin in the woods, a great spot to appreciate the glory of God in His creation and revel in our friendship. We always laugh a lot when we're together. How can one not laugh at the insanity of the world?As one Catholic blogger says, "We laugh because we believe."  The long drive back to northern Virginia was grueling for this old lady, but the weather was beautiful, the woods and fields fresh and green. While the redbud and daffodils were finished, the dogwood put on a full bloom show all the way home.

insurrectionists at the White House? Francis Stamp Featuring Ukrainian Flag? What the...? Anyone? Anyone?

Will the real insurrectionists please stand up!

Biden invites ‘Tennessee Three’ Democrats who faced expulsion over gun violence protest to White House

Let's talk about insurrection. We're in the middle of it that's for sure. And the leaders of the insurrection are in the White House and on Capitol Hill. They also build their empires in the federal bureaucracies robbing the taxpayers while they accept bribes and kickbacks and insider trading tips from their supporters.

The Flies are Conquering the Fly Paper!

During World War II, John Steinbeck wrote a novel used by the war department called The Moon is Down. It tells the story of an invasion force occupying a coastal town where coal is mined. The invaders need the coal and the townspeople, who are defeated with the help of a traitor within, gradually rebel in subtle ways that undermine the morale of the invaders. One young enemy lieutenant, on the verge of a nervous breakdown, has a dream that he shares with his fellow officers in which he hears the expression, "The flies are conquering the fly paper." His dream reveals the truth by exposing the lie.

If you've ever been in a barn where the farmer hangs sticky fly paper to trap the flies, you can see the image in your mind and realize the irony of the statement. The lieutenant knows that the people at headquarters are lying about the state of the war. The defeated people have not welcomed the invaders, but have developed a cold, uncooperative resolution to fight in their own subtle ways. They will never give in. And gradually, like the flypaper, they are taking their toll on the invading army.

Pass on The Truth! St. Athanasius

 “For our canons and our forms were not given to the Churches at the present day, but were wisely and safely transmitted to us from our forefathers. Neither had our faith its beginning at this time, but it came down to us from the Lord through His disciples.”

How to Respond to the Evil Trinity of Wokeism? Live Not by Lies!

Mao's Cultural Revolution reflects wokeism better than Marx!

One of my favorite magazines is Chronicles. The latest issue focused on the question, "Is Wokeism Marxist?" All of the writers came to the conclusion that it isn't. Marxism warred against capitalism and the inequality between workers and owners. It's target was economic inequality and the downfall of capitalism. That is not what's running the engine of wokeism. One writer made a compelling case that Mao's cultural revolution offers a more accurate portrayal of our current crisis.

Editor's comment: When will we see a papal document in the vein of Traditionis Custodes that suppresses these sacrilegious abominations rather than persecuting those who attend the Traditional Latin Mass? Join these prayer warriors in making reparation and praying for the conversion of the poor deluded souls who embrace sodomy and crucify Christ, especially the priests who are tickling the ears of sinners and leading them to hell.

Prayer warriors gather at St. John the Evangelist to make reparation for the sacrilege
 of promoting a sin that cries out to God for vengeance. Our Lady of Victory, pray for us.

Saint John the Evangelist, a parish in San Diego’s homosexual Hillcrest neighborhood notorious for its promotion of pro-sodomy initiatives, advertises a 5:00 PM Sunday Mass hosted by the church’s LGBTQ Ministry. The parish also offers an LGBTQ monthly social/potluck, LGBTQ prayer and support group, and other activities, and has marched in San Diego’s “gay pride” parade.

St. Joseph, Pillar of Families, Pray for Us!

On the Feast of St. Joseph the worker, join me in praying the Litany of St. Joseph.


Nefarious and the Fatima Visiion of Hell

Ever since I saw Nefarious, the movie about the criminal possessed by the devil, I've been thinking about poor sinners. Jacinta, the little seer of Fatima, constantly reminded her brother and cousin, "We need to pray for poor sinners!" Horrified at the vision of souls falling into hell like snowflakes, she became a little victim soul trying to save all she could from the fires of hell. She accepted sufferings that would make an adult squirm.
