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!

Archbishop Vigano and Bishop Schneider Encourage Bishop Joseph Strickland

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

"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.
