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.

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:

|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.

|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:
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?

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

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.

Let's pray that more bishops act like brothers to this faithful priest of God!

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.

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'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.

|Oatmeal is good for you! |
Just eat it already!
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:

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

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.

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.

Do not comply
On planes and trains and children
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.

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

|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.)
