Life is Challenging and Often Very Interesting! Handle with Prayer!

Jordan Peterson with his wife, Tammy, and children 

EXCLUSIVE: Jordan Peterson says he fully supports his wife’s conversion to Catholicism

I've been praying for Jordan Peterson off and on for a long time. I am now going to pray for his wife, Tammy, as well. What a lovely story. May the next convert in their family be Jordan himself, thier children, and extended family. God works in wonderful and mysterious ways.

The moral of the story is always seek the truth. 

I once told a young pro-abortion man at a rescue (I think he was a college student) that "If your looking for truth, you're looking for God." I hope that young man, Dan, found Him and we will meet merrily in heaven to discuss his conversion. We touch so many lives during our journey here on earth. May everyone we touch be part of our reunion where we will all rejoice forever before the throne of our God. 

May Jesus Christ be praised, now and forever.

We Need It in Canon Law: No Homosexuals in the Priesthood!

My husband and I with the priest who witnessed our marriage on the left (Fr. Hugh Monmonier) and Fr. James Haley on our 25th wedding anniversary 

I spent about 25 years in regular contact with Fr. James Haley who became a cancelled priest in the Diocese of Arlington when our former bishop, Paul Loverde, deep-sixed him over his efforts to address the homosexual problems in the diocese. While Arlington had a reputation for orthodoxy, there were a number of active homosexual priests practicing sodomy and using gay porn. Some of the cases went public because of Fr. Haley's perseverance to uncover the truth. Also, several good men left the priesthood voluntarily because of their experiences with the homosexuals.

A voice of sanity in an insane world!

Sunday Meditation: Christ the King Rules from the Cross!


We had a terrific homily today for the Feast of Christ the King that really set me thinking. Father emphasized the Latin phrase, Christus Vincit, Christus Regnat, Christus Imperat, Christ conquers, Christ reigns, Christ commands. Here's the translation of the hymn which is based on Psalm 117:

Christ conquers,
Christ reigns,
Christ commands.

Summary of the Synod part 1 and It's not good! Are We Surprised?

Set up for the Delphi Technique under the eye of the serpent

In an interview with Vatican journalist Edward Pentin, Cardinal Gerhard Mueller gave his assessment of the process and the goal of radicals in the group. Nothing he says is really a surprise in view of the previous synods which all had manipulated outcomes to undermine the faith. This one so obviously used the Delphi Technique that anyone familiar with it could recognize what was happening. More on that later. The cardinal's interview appeared in the National Catholic Register with this introduction:

Courses at Hillsdale College are Worth Checking Out!

Hillsdale College, Home of Imprimis

We never stop learning from the time we are in the womb where we can hear our mother's heartbeat and her voice. A child is born having an intellect infused with the natural law and the gift of free will. The intellect was given to us to study the world and recognize and learn the truth. Our free will was given to us, not to choose to do whatever we want, right or wrong, but to choose the true, the good and the beautiful, in other words, to choose the will of our Creator.

Gassing Rats

"The real nature of Islam is evil. Hamas must be stopped!" 
Mosab Hussan Yousef, son of founding Hamas leader, is a convert to Christianity

Jews and Muslims still operate in the Old Testament times of "an eye for an eye". Unless they turn to Christianity (love thy enemy, love thy neighbor) they'll never agree to peace. It's impossible without Christ. Mosab Hussan Yousef, son of a founding Hamas leader, converted to Christianity after he wanted no part of the evil and cruelty of "religious Islam" (radical Islam) and the terrorism of Hamas which he saw first hand.

If You Believe in Macro-evolution, You Need to Watch This! Make it a mini-course. Learn and Share!

Hugh Owen is a personal friend and one of the most intelligent and articulate speakers I've ever known. Catholics have an obligation to study the faith and the reality of life in order to bring others to Jesus Christ. Consider this a mini-course. Listen, take notes, read some of the documents mentioned, pray about how you can share this with others. 

Please pray for the Kolbe Center and support them financially if you are able.

Ruling Class Warmongers and Money-Launderers at Work by Fr. Bill Aitcheson

The United States is at war with the Russian Federation. Since before the commencement of the Russian military incursion into Ukraine on February 24, 2022, the United States has waged an aggressive war against Russia. The U.S. aggression has been grandual and, until the uniparty warmongers began their money laundering operation in Ukraine, they were only publicly sporadic in their hostility to Russia.

During the Clinton regime, American policymakers, with Clinton approval, made the expansion of NATO into Eastern Europe a globalist uniparty priority, beginning with the U.S.-NATO. interference in the Balkans against Serbia, a Russian ally. From that time on, NATO, with U.S. encouragement and leadership, insinuated itself into Eastern Europe callously disregarding the legitimate security concerns of Russia.

Sunday Meditation: St. John Bosco on Islam

St. John Bosco was a great story teller. And who doesn't love a good story? Jesus educated his listeners with parables that taught moral values. Who can forget the story of the Prodigal Son or the Good Samaritan. Think of the powerful impact his stories must have had on "his boys." The video below relates his story of a father telling his sons about Islam and answering their questions. He reveals how Mohammed claimed a "miracle" of replacing a piece of the moon that fell on his sleeve. That's where the image of the crescent comes from in Islam. Watch the video or read most of its content in the transcript below. Islam is a diabolical "religion" of hatred and violence, not peace.

"Be Brave Or You Will Not Exist!" Hey Republicans, #BeLikePoland! Listen to this wise pollitician!


This video is mis-titled. It's not an interview with Vivek Ramaswamy, but with a journalist at our border and then with Polish politician and journalist, Dominik Tarczyński. Tucker first talks about the border crisis here with a reporter at the border. Then he interviews Tarczynki about how Poland has kept their country safe from terrorists by keeping tight control of their own border. Talk about a straight talker who doesn't mince words and refuses to be cowed by a liberal lady leftist calling him a racist. That clip is very interesting!

Do You Have Trouble Sleeping?

Then today's saint is an intercessor for you. St. Peter of Alcantara got my attention last year on 
this date when I read about him in Butler's Lives of the Saints. He took mortification seriously and spent many hours awake during the night. Those of us with sleep issues would do well to seek his help in our own "night watchings" although I can't say I'm ready to practice his mortifications:

He had no other bed than a skin laid on the floor, on which he knelt a part of the night and slept sitting, leaning his head against a wall. His [night] watchings were the most difficult and remarkable of all the austerities which he practiced, and in consequence of them he has been regarded in after-ages as the patron saint of night-watchmen.

Once when a friend of St. Peter lamented over the wickedness of the world, something we can all certainly relate to these days, he replied:

The Left's Disease Exposed: Vertigo with Vomiting (Also Insanity)!

Last night I had a terrible vertigo episode. I woke up at 2:00 a.m. so dizzy I couldn’t sit up or stand. I couldn’t even roll over on the left without overwhelming dizziness and nausea. That set me vomiting. Not a pleasant way to spend the night. Yes, I certainly had a dizzy, unbalanced, and sick feeling when I turned to the left.

Sunday Meditation: Worship Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar

Catholics, we need to take to the streets all over this country to witness to our Lord and Savior. Thanks be to God for this beautiful example of faith. May it be repeated everywhere!

Photos of the Eucharistic Procession through the streets of New York City on October 10th

Ambiguity Goes on with Francis and the Question of Blessing Same-Sex Unions

Wolves are in the sheepfold dressed in clerics, pectoral crosses, and even papal white!

Francis has made it clear from the moment he stepped out on the balcony at St. Peter's that he will do everything he can to advance acceptance of the LGBTQ+ agenda. On his visit to the U.S. in 2015 he held a "private" meeting with a same-sex couple showing great enthusiasm and hugging the two men. It was filmed and widely shared amidst gay euphoria.

A School Choice Success Story

Some commenters here oppose school choice because of the involvement of the government. And that certainly is a danger. But for children in public schools, the school choice movement offers an escape from horrible failed schools. How many people would willingly put their children in the shop class of the freak from Canada with the prosthetic breasts? The man impersonating a woman was fire from his last school, but has a new gig where he can continue to impose his transgender insanity on the kids. I won't post his photos here, but you can check out the new school where the kids will be assigned specific doors they must use to enter and exit the school. Inconveniencing the kids doesn't matter; catering to the transgender scandal trumps all!

Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Spokesperson Sets the Record Straight


Stop the jabs! "Turn away from the perpetration of this monstrous crime against humanity,"

Top microbiologist Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi calls mRNA injections ‘crime against humanity’

Please don't even think about getting the latest totally untested "vaccine" for the latest "COVID variant." The only interests being served are those of Big Pharma! The lemmings who stick their arms out for the jab are nothing but cannon fodder for the war against population. How many have already died because they "followed the (phony) science" of quacks like Anthony Fauci? How many more will die? But of course they'll claim all the heart disease and cancer has no relation to the mRNA jabs. Believe them at your peril!

Here We Go Again - Islamic Massacre of Every Jew in Sight

Israeli mother and two little sons captured by Hamas. 

While reading Lindsay O'Rourke's Covert Regime Change:America's Secret Cold War, she mentioned a book - Years of Horror, Glimpse of Hope:the Diary of a Family in Hiding by Moshe Maltz - which I immediately ordered and read. It was about the eradication of all the Jews in Sokal, Ukraine, during WWII...a horrific book with Nazis killing Jews much in the same way as Hamas Islamic terrorists slaughtered Jews this past weekend in Israel. I was glad to be finished reading about the horror. Then I turned on the Internet (I have no TV) and could see the very same horror in real life, in real time, taking place in Israel. No more just reading about it from 80 years ago. We can watch the barbaric terror, killings and slaughter still happening today in 2023. 

As much as Canada and Ukraine need to deal with their Nazi problem, Islam needs to deal with the Quran. Their "holy book", or as they like to call it, the Nobel Quran, is the main problem of Islam along with their murderous pervert prophet, Muhammad.

Deborah Ben Aderet - "How I Survived the Hamas Attack"

This is an interesting account of how one family lived through the Hamas horror. Deborah Ben Aderet also gives insider facts of living in a kibbutz close to the Gaza Strip and Israel's actions with the Palestinians on a daily basis (before the attack).

Study Catholic History!

Don John of Austria
I love Christopher Check! He has a wonderful CD about the battle of
Lepanto. It begins with a discussion of Catholic history and the reason we Catholics in America are so ignorant of it. It's because we've been raised with British, Protestant history. So all the important events that shaped western civilization as impacted by the Church are ignored. 

When I was home schooling I remember checking out a history series from a Protestant publisher Abeka that taught about the Protestant religious "awakening" in America but said not one word about the Spanish Catholic explorers in California and Florida. You could read about the "first" colony in Massachusetts, but nothing about the Spanish colonies founded 100 years earlier.

The Feast of the Holy Rosary and the Battle of Lepanto

Two months out of the year are dedicated to Our Lady, May and October. Today is the Feast of the Holy Rosary in honor of the great defeat of the Muslims at Lepanto in 1571 when the Holy League defeated the invaders in a terrific sea battle. That decisive battle saved Western civilization and drove the Turks out of the Mediterranean for years.

The Cheating Has to Stop! Get the Men Off the Women's Teams!

As the Synod Begins, A Faithful Shepherd Speaks a Warning!

If you've been watching the reports on the Synod on Synodality, two things are obvious  targets: marriage and the priesthood. First, it's clear that there will be discussions about blessing same-sex unions, a direct attack on marriage and its meaning. Second, women's ordination, an impossibility, is back on the table. It's a direct attack on the priesthood which means a direct attack on the Holy Eucharist, the central tenet of our faith.

Bishop Strickland has been very clear in recent letters about both the sacrament of marriage and the sacrament of ordination. In his letter of September 19, 2023, he specifically linked the discussion of marriage to the Synod which began yesterday:

Marjorie Taylor Greene and the Truth About Firealarmgate

On Our 54th Wedding Anniversary I Offer a Great Article on Marriage and Parenting

 I wish I had been so smart when I was that age!  

Dad Teaches Sons to Do Simple, Loving Acts for Mom Every Week, and It Changes Her Life:

A loving dad and his three young sons are showing the world the true impact of running regular errands for Mom.

Riverside, California-born Brooklyn Powell, 35, and her husband, Jonathan Powell, 36, live in their hometown with their four kids. When Mr. Powell, a business owner, took one of his wife's most challenging errands into his own hands one day, it was a game-changer for the overworked mom.....

Another Day Another Dubia -- One More for Francis to Ignore?

Five Cardinals issued a dubia this summer about the upcoming Synod on Synodality which is shaping up to be a terrorist attack on the faith, particularly the priesthood. As scripture says, strike the shepherd and the sheep will scatter. The initial dubia received a vague and elusive response according to the bishops (reported by LifeSiteNews), so the cardinals wrote a second with the questions reworked to be answered with a simple yes or no. Since the second dubia sent on August 21st received no response, the Cardinals released it to the faithful. I'm reprinting the second dubia followed by their letter to the faithful. But where are the other cardinals? Do we not have even one U.S. cardinal who wants answers to these questions? The synod sessions begin tomorrow. This is a time for prayers and sacrifice for Holy Mother Church. May God protect her from the wolves within. "Woe to the false shepherds."

The Dubia

To his Holiness, Francis, Supreme Pontiff

Most Holy Father,

"Rescue Those Being Led to Slaughter!" -- Will Goodman writes from jail.

This atrocity must end!
Editor's note: I met Will Goodman a few years ago when I participated in a Red Rose 
Rescue as a sidewalk supporter. I was impressed by his spirit of gentleness and his love for the Lord. Now he's in jail, who knows for how long? Like the J6 prisoners, some of whom remain untried and unsentenced for their "crimes," the rescuers may remain in jail for months waiting...and waiting...and waiting.

The right to a speedy trial has disappeared in this country which is rapidly becoming a banana republic run by corrupt politicians who use the "justice" system to stifle the voices and suppress the actions of their adversaries. The only reason these pro-lifers remain in prison is because their non-violent attempt to save lives was defined as violent because they were charged under the FACE Act. Like Humpty Dumpty in Wonderland, when our tinpot tyrants use words they mean exactly what they want them to mean. They twist and distort reality all they want.

Have You Thanked Your Guardian Angel Today?

Today is the feast of the guardian angels. How many people ever talk to or thank their 
guardian angel for his 24/7 attention. When you have a close call on the road, when you meet a friend "by coincidence" when you need someone to talk to, when you take a serious fall but are spared any serious injury?  Was it, perhaps, the protective action of your angel always on watch?

The angels are powerful and eager to help us -- but only in things that bring us closer to God. Don't ask your guardian angel to give you the numbers for the big lottery win. How many people's lives have been ruined by quick riches? Too many to count. But praying before studying that you might be well prepared for a test or praying before taking up the Scripture asking for guidance in understanding God's word....

The angels will happily respond to those kinds of prayer.

Today's meditation in Benedictus is well worth quoting in part:

Sunday Meditation: October is Respect Life Month. Will You Join the Pro-Lifers in Jail as They Pray?

May our prayers to end abortion join us in a chain of prayer warriors that circles the world!

Editor's note: This email from jail describes the prayer plan for the month of October, Respect Life month. It also provides the first two weeks of prayer intentions suggested by Will and John as they offer their imprisonment for deliverance. I'm only including the first week and will post the second week next Sunday.

Abortion is a scourge on the earth that Mother Teresa predicted would lead to nuclear war. Certainly, we are long overdo for a violent chastisement that matches the violence against the most innocent among us. Please join in this pilgrimage of prayer for deliverance.
