Final Evacuation Complete & Assorted Variety

I.  The final evacuation of Babylon-upon-Gomorrah is complete, as in leaving the keys in the mailbox and shaking the dust from the sandals.  Thank God for U-Haul.

II. Thanks for all of the inquiries about the back.  I hired pro movers to load the U-Haul, but not to unload, and while I definitely guarded and was cautious with my back, I still carried and lifted plenty, with no ill effects or pain.  So clearly things are much, much better.  Now I just need to keep it that way.

III.  I enjoy rowing (on a machine), and started doing it years ago when I was doing CrossFit.  Rowing is a fantastic exercise, especially for the back, as well as a great aerobic workout – without the joint-killing pounding of jogging.  I suppose I should start posting my distances and times here as a form of accountability…

IV.  I have become impatient with the videographer of the Diabolical Narcissism video for not yet delivering the product, and have started sending curt emails.  Hopefully this will have an effect.  Thanks to all of you who have sent emails saying already how much the few essays I have already written on DN have helped.  Believe me, I haven’t even begun.  Heck, the video, which is two hours and forty-five minutes long, is just a glancing introduction to the subject. I had to intentionally limit huge topics to only one or two slides, for example islam and Marxism vis-a-vis DN.  Islam and Marxism are both satanic political systems that drive people into DN – that is, encourage and abuse people into voluntarily purging all love from their hearts, leaving them voluntarily devoid of empathy and capable of only the demonic emotional palate of anger, hatred, jealousy and fear.  I could have talked for an hour just about that.  But, it will all be presented in writing here.  What I am writing right now is an explanation of Diabolical Narcissism amongst the clergy, and also laymen.  Yes, there are DNs who literally hate God and His Church and dedicate their lives to destroying The Church from the inside out and warring against God.  And yes, I think it is highly probable that Jorge Bergoglio is one such DN.  I explain how the DN’s relationship with God progresses and how God and His Church eventually become the objects of the DN’s rage.

V.  On a very happy note, the priest who offers the Holy and August Sacrifice of the Mass for you, my benefactors, every Tuesday morning at 0830 Eastern, has recorded a recitation of The Last Gospel with the text so that you all can hear what the Latin sounds like.  Remember, the Last Gospel is John 1: 1-14.

Prophecy of St. Francis of Assisi About A Destroyer Pope

Beware anyone who scoffs at this and dismisses it as “crazy talk”. The points match up so thoroughly it simply no longer can be dismissed.  And either we believe that St. Francis of Assisi was who the Church says he was, or he was a madman and these are the ravings of a madman, and all of the miracles attributed to him are lies.  But you can’t have it both ways – and isn’t that the overall theme in all of this?

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, no matter what anyone tells you, you can’t have it both ways.

–**–

1. The time is fast approaching in which there will be great trials and afflictions; perplexities and dissensions, both spiritual and temporal, will abound; the charity of many will grow cold [a pandemic of Diabolical Narcissism], and the malice of the wicked will increase.

2. The devils will have unusual power, the immaculate purity of our Order, and of others, will be so much obscured that there will be very few Christians who will obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with loyal hearts and perfect charity. At the time of this tribulation a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavor to draw many into error and death [Check!].

3. Then scandals will be multiplied, our Order will be divided, and many others will be entirely destroyed, because they will consent to error instead of opposing it.

4. There will be such diversity of opinions and schisms among the people, the religious and the clergy, that, except those days were shortened, according to the words of the Gospel, even the elect would be led into error, were they not specially guided, amid such great confusion, by the immense mercy of God. [Terrifying]

5. Then our Rule and manner of life will be violently opposed by some, and terrible trials will come upon us. Those who are found faithful will receive the crown of life; but woe to those who, trusting solely in their Order, shall fall into tepidity, for they will not be able to support the temptations permitted for the proving of the elect.

6. Those who preserve in their fervor [because intensity of feeling is a GOOD thing] and adhere to virtue with love and zeal for the truth, will suffer injuries and, persecutions as rebels and schismatics; for their persecutors, urged on by the evil spirits, will say they are rendering a great service to God by destroying such pestilent men from the face of the earth [before this is all over, people will be scrambling to turn in their family members and friends, oftentimes for financial reward], but the Lord will be the refuge of the afflicted, and will save all who trust in Him. And in order to be like their Head, [Christ] these, the elect, will act with confidence, and by their death will purchase for themselves eternal life; choosing to obey God rather than man, they will fear nothing [NOTHING], and they will prefer to perish rather than consent to falsehood and perfidy. [Those who choose to remain faithful to Jesus Christ and His Holy Church can expect to die an unnatural death.] 

7. Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days JESUS CHRIST WILL SEND THEM NOT A TRUE PASTOR, BUT A DESTROYER.”

Video Animation of the Bergoglian Pontificate Released

This is two hours and forty minutes long, but it is most informative.  The election of Bergoglio is at 00:01:04. Within minutes, a few knew of the inevitable impending doom – but most remained blissfully ignorant or in denial.

Amoris Laetitia happens at 02:39:23.

When the ship goes down, the lifeboats ARE the ship.  The good news is, there is room for as many as want to go.  Lifeboat capacity is infinite.  There is no “women and children only” order, no need for husbands and fathers to bid farewell to their wives and children.  Sadly, as at 01:26:51, a lifeboat with room for 65 launches with only 12 aboard. Most will stay, and most will die.

In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. John 1: 4

In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. John 1: 4

News is going around today that scientists have discovered that there is literally, no joke, a flash of light at the moment of fertilization of an egg when new life begins.  It has to do with zinc being released and fluorescing.  Here is the money quote and link:

The bright flash occurs because when sperm enters and egg it triggers calcium to increase which releases zinc from the egg. As the zinc shoots out, it binds to small molecules which emit a fluorescence which can be picked up by camera microscopes.

Over the last six years this team has shown that zinc controls the decision to grow and change into a completely new genetic organism.

I have a particular fondness/devotion to The Last Gospel.  Now, if you are Novus Ordo, you have no idea what I am talking about because the Freemasonic-Communist-Sodomite infiltrators cut the Last Gospel from the Novus Ordo Mass, which is proof of their malevolency and malignancy.  The Last Gospel, which is the first 14 verses of the Gospel of John, is read at the end of almost every Mass.  And it should be, because it is one of the most beautiful, if not THE most beautiful piece of prose ever written.  If you look at an altar set up for a Tridentine Mass, there are three altar cards – left, center and right – which contain the text of various fixed prayers of the Mass.  The altar card on the left, or Gospel side of the altar, is The Last Gospel.

The news today about a literal flash of light at the moment of conception immediately reminded me of verse 4 in The Last Gospel, “In ipso vita erat, et vita erat lux hominum”, which means, “In Him was life, and the Life was the Light of men.”

Verse 5 goes on to say, “Et lux in tenebris lucet, et tenebrae eam non comprehenderunt.” “And the Light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.”

Indeed.

I always recite (at a whisper) The Last Gospel along with the priest – whether I can hear him or not.  All genuflect at the words, “Et verbum caro factum est”, “And the Word was made flesh”, so one just keeps one’s eye on the priest, and you “match up” at the genuflection if you can’t hear.  I have the sneaking suspicion that Our Lord likes hearing us say those words, and that He especially likes it when He can listen to us say them from the inside, as His physical substance is just proximal to our heart.  I recommend that everyone do the same – it certainly can’t hurt. If you still have no choice but to go to Novus Ordo Mass, just say it yourself at the end of Mass after the blessing and during or after the recessional.

I should record audio of it, as I can’t seem to find anything on YouTube.

THE LAST GOSPEL

In principio erat Verbum, et Verbum erat apud Deum, et Deus erat Verbum. Hoc erat in principio apud Deum. Omnia per ipsum facta sunt: et sine ipso factum est nihil, quod factum est. In ipso vita erat, et vita erat lux hominum: et lux in tenebris lucet, et tenebrae eam non comprehenderunt.

Fuit homo missus a Deo, cui nomen erat Joannes. Hic venit in testimonium ut testimonium perhiberet de lumine, ut omnes crederent per illum. Non erat ille lux, sed ut testimonium perhiberet de lumine. Erat lux vera, quae illuminat omnem hominem venientem in hunc mundum. In mundo erat, et mundus per ipsum factus est, et mundus eum non cognovit.

In propria venit, et sui eum non receperunt. Quotquot autem receperunt eum, dedit eis potestatem filios Dei fieri, his qui credunt in nomine ejus: qui non ex sanguinibus, neque ex voluntate carnis, neque ex voluntate viri, sed ex Deo nati sunt. Et Verbum caro factum est, et habitavit in nobis: et vidimus gloriam ejus, gloriam quasi unigeniti a Patre plenum gratiae et veritatis.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him: and without Him was made nothing that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to give testimony of the light, that all men might believe through him. He was not the light, but was to give testimony of the light. That was the True Light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world. He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not.

He came unto his own, and His own received him not. But as many as received Him, He gave them power to be made the sons of God, to them that believe in His Name. Who are born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, the glory as it were of the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

The Key Character in Brideshead Revisited Is Mrs. Beryl Muspratt

In the aftermath of “The Exuberance of Buttsecks” more than one piece was written on the novel “Brideshead Revisited”, and how the entire point of the novel was essentially mocked unto destruction by Bergoglio and his army of diabolical faggots.  I wrote on this previously in September of ARSH 2014.  Here is that piece, even more relevant now than it was before. I have updated a couple of terms.

———-

There are a few more points on the subject of shame that I would like to expand upon.  The first comes from the novel “Brideshead Revisited”, which demonstrates, completely contrary to the Modernist, post-Christian, Bergoglian heresy, how shame is a medicinal mercy.  If we can self-generate shame without having to have it applied from the exterior, then so much the better.  In fact, we pray for shame in the First Sorrowful Mystery of the Rosary – The Agony in the Garden, the fruit of which is “sorrow for sin”.  Shame.  We beg God to grant us the grace of shame.  But for many people, the shaming must be generated, at least initially, externally.  This is a function of charity – true charity, not the mindless platitude consisting of indifference yielding permissiveness, or in giving people “free stuff”, or just simply “what makes them happy”.  No, true charity is joy in the existence of another and thus a focused desire that that person make it to heaven.  Full stop.

If you are not familiar with Brideshead Revisited, the context is easily explained.  Set between the World Wars in England, Julia is civilly divorced from Rex, and is shacking up with Charles, who is also civilly divorced.  Charles and Julia make a real cute couple and “love” each other (inasmuch as people who express their “love” for one another do so by knowingly flagellating and crucifying Christ in exchange for having an orgasm, can actually be said to love one another in any honest sense of the word.)  Bridey is Julia’s older brother.

[Bridey has just announced his engagement to Beryl Muspratt, a widow with three children. Julia asks why he hasn’t brought Beryl to Brideshead to meet her]

Lord Brideshead ‘Bridey’: [pompously] You must understand that Beryl is a woman of strict Catholic principle, fortified by the prejudices of the middle classes. I couldn’t *possibly* bring her here. It is a matter of indifference whether you choose to live in sin with Rex or Charles or both – I have always avoided enquiry into the details of your ménage – but in no case would Beryl consent to be your guest.
Julia Mottram: Why, you pompous ass!
[Julia walks out of the room, holding back tears]
Charles Ryder: Bridey! What a bloody offensive thing to say to Julia.
Lord Brideshead ‘Bridey’: [coldly] It was nothing she should object to. I was merely stating a fact well known to her.

Long story short, Julia eventually breaks off her affair with Charles and lives at home, alone for the rest of her life, reconciled to Our Lord through His Holy Church, namely through the Sacrament of Confession. Charles also converts to Catholicism and, it is presumed, lives a chaste life as well.

Beryl Muspratt, painted by all of the protagonists as a villain, ugly, frumpy, judgmental, and emblematic of “everything wrong with the Church”, even though she is never directly seen in the novel, only discussed and quoted a few times by others, is the most heroic figure in the novel.  She is reported as always being kind to Julia, but unwavering in her defense of the Truth, in this case the Truth about marriage and the Sixth Commandment.  Thus, she could never consent to being a guest in the home of a woman – even her own sister-in-law – whom she knows to be Living in Sin, because to do so would ratify the sin itself, ratify the torture and murder of God Himself, and also REDUCE the likelihood that Julia (and Charles) would repent, correct their situation, and die confessed and in a state of grace, be that five minutes hence, or five decades.  Beryl cannot coerce Julia or anyone else to love God, but she can and rightly does apply medicinal shame to Julia in the hopes that the pain of that shame might lead Julia to stop torturing and killing Christ, and thus utterly rejecting His Love in favor of having orgasms with a cute guy, and in so doing, damning herself to hell.

It is precisely because Julia was made to feel PROFOUNDLY ASHAMED by Beryl refusing to enter her home that Julia set out on the road to repentance.  If Beryl had been a typical Novus Ordo FrancisNewMercyChurch Kathy-zombie of today and sought to “encounter” and “accompany” Julia with the “tender caresses” of mendacious FrancisMercy, manifested by indifference to Julia and her mortally sinful lifestyle, Julia would have been EDIFIED IN HER SIN, and thus would not have repented and corrected.  And neither would Charles – both would have been lost to hell, in all likelihood.

Interestingly, Bridey, the older brother, is revealed by his own words as being “indifferent”, and thus it is BRIDEY, with his lack of charity for the soul of his own sister, that is the most villainous character in this particular scene.  But even then, he concludes by stating that Julia has no right to object to the statement of facts which she already knows – namely the Sixth Commandment and Our Lord’s words in Matthew 19.  The only thing Julia has a right to object to or be hurt by is Bridey, her own brother, declaring that he is “indifferent” to her sin, and thus to the fate of his own sister’s soul, not to mention Charles’ soul.  That’s it.  And Beryl Muspratt is indeed the heroine of the novel.

Hey, Too Bad No One Saw This Obamacare Implosion Coming. Oh, wait….

Obamacare was specifically, consciously designed to hyper-inflate insurance premiums and healthcare costs, implode the system, and thus give the oligarchy an excuse to nationalize the entire healthcare industry.  Anyone with even the slightest comprehension of markets and risk pooling saw this coming years ago. And if we assume that the Insurance Companies themselves have a basic grasp of the concept of insurance, they knew too.  Which points to the obvious question, how much were the insurance industry oligarchs paid to consciously execute and oversee the auto destruction of their own industry, and what sort of power and money have they been promised in the nationalized, single-payer system?

If you want to hear the truth about insurance, here is me explaining today’s current events IN CONTEXT, five years ago, and what will need to be done after the war.

Forgive the flag.

Gloves Off: Paragraph 303 God Wills Mortal Sin, and Bergoglio’s Sinister Affinity for Judas Iscariot

From paragraph 303 of “The Exuberance of Buttsecks”:

“Yet conscience can do more than recognize that a given situation does not correspond objectively to the overall demands of the Gospel.  It can also recognize with sincerity and honesty what for now is the most generous response which can be given to God, and come to see with a certain moral security that it is what God himself is asking amid the concrete complexity of one’s limits, while yet not fully the objective ideal.”

The fact that Bergoglio is a full-blown heretic is no longer debatable amongst serious adults.  The question for the adults at the table now is, WHO IS BERGOGLIO?  And yes, I mean that in the most sinister sense possible.

I have been reading about a very famous exorcism, in which Judas Iscariot was listed as a “Demonized Spirit” that possessed a young woman in Iowa.  I was struck by this, first because I did not know that damned humans could possess, but also because of my work (continuing slowly as it may be) on Diabolical Narcissism.  The lynchpin and core concept about Diabolical Narcissists is that they are human beings that have freely chosen to adopt the demonic psycho-spiritual posture and emotional palate.  How? By voluntarily purging themselves of all LOVE. They are human beings voluntarily incapable of love, and as a corollary, incapable of empathy, genuine happiness, genuine pleasure, gratitude, and even of sadness – which is an essential component of human affectation.  Remember, “Blessed are those who mourn…” and, “Jesus wept.”  Diabolical Narcissists only experience those emotions that the demons experience: anger, hatred, jealousy and fear.  They are animated by spite.

Bergoglio earlier this week delivered a sermon at Casa Santa Marta in which he called Judas Iscariot a poor, repentant man, victimized and driven to suicide by unmerciful lovers of the law.  This stunning attempt to rehabilitate Judas Iscariot, the greatest, most wicked traitor in history and despairing self-murderer, is beyond unprecedented.  It reeks of supernatural evil.

This coupled with Bergoglio’s repeated statements that there is no hell, that the worst that can happen to a human soul is that it be simply annihilated at death, and that the possibility of eternal damnation is not part of “the logic of the gospels”, and Bergoglio’s relentless push to keep people from confessing their sins TO CHRIST by convincing them that not only are their sins not sins, but are, as we saw in the Paragraph 303 quote above, God’s will, can not but make one think that Judas Iscariot could be a big player in all of this.

Further, Bergoglio’s lust for worldly power and adoration mirrors Judas Iscariot, as does Bergoglio’s open admiration for Marxism.  Remember, Judas Iscariot was the primordial proto-Marxist as stated in the Gospel of John, chapter 12:

Mary therefore took a pound of ointment of right spikenard, of great price, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. Then one of His disciples, Judas Iscariot, he that was about to betray Him, said: Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?Now he said this, not because he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and having the purse, carried the things that were put therein.

I don’t think people understand how Bergoglio’s serpentine words denying the reality of hell and eternal damnation tie into his Marxism and materialism.  Bergoglio casts everything in earthly, worldly, material terms.  Bergoglio constantly preaches that material poverty is the worst thing that a human being can experience, and even that “discerning the Body and Blood of Christ” means NOT that a person believes and confesses the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, but rather that one has “greater fellowship with the underprivileged”.  What this all does is plant the seeds in the minds of men that any suffering due to lack of material wealth or earthly suffering COULD justify suicide.  Life on earth COULD become intolerable, or even just enough below the mean to put suicide on the table as a viable option (no pun intended).  Because, after all, the WORST that could happen is the sweet relief of the “big lights-out”, because eternal damnation is “not part of the logic of the gospels”.  From here, it QUICKLY becomes an act of “mercy”, and by that I mean the monstosity of “FrancisMercy”, to abort a child that might have to live a life of so-called “underprivilege”, or to “ease the suffering” of a sick, lonely old person.

Finally, Bergoglio, like Judas Iscariot, gives every indication of being embarrassed to rage by the reality of the Real Presence of Our Lord in the Eucharist (see John 6), but also goes out of his way to not only backhandedly deny the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist (as in Paragraph 186 of “The Exuberance of Buttsecks”), but also to encourage and incite as many people as possible in open, unrepentant mortal sin to defile the Blessed Sacrament by sacrilegious communion, with the full cooperation and assent of Christ’s priests – the very men tasked with defending Our Lord’s physical substance, like the angel with the flaming sword stationed at the Gates of Eden.

During the exorcism referenced above, it was recorded that Judas Iscariot was the worst offender against the Blessed Sacrament, “constantly trying to somehow destroy or defile it. To manipulate or mutilate it would represent everything [he] had attempted to do in life, and would be in league with the diabolical activity of attempting to taint anything Holy.”

That pretty much describes Bergoglio’s agenda over the past three years.

Now check this out:

It turns out that Judas Iscariot is, in the Hierarchy of Hell, the patron demonic spirit of suicide. In my research on Diabolical Narcissists, people who I refer to as “Hell’s Mercenaries”, and which are described in heartbreaking anecdote after heartbreaking anecdote as “soul murdering”, in the more severe cases, the DN actually fantasizes about driving his selected target or targets to… SUICIDE. For DNs, the ultimate manifestation of their power and superiority to “mere humans”, most especially those weak and pathetic humans who manifest that which the DN is voluntarily incapable of, LOVE, is to drive such a one to suicide.  Like I said, these people are literally demonic.

Very interestingly, the priest who conducted the exorcism of the girl in Iowa prophesied that the spirit of Judas Iscariot will be a controlling and guiding force in the age of the Antichrist, which was fast approaching.  That was in ARSH 1928.

Again, it is time that the grown-ups start openly discussing WHO OR WHAT Bergoglio is, and beyond that what must be done to counter him.

Here is where I am going to start:

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.  Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.  May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, cast into hell satan and all evil spirits who prowl throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.  Amen.

Letter to “Rev” from fellow Baptist convert

Ann,

This Truth-seeker sounds a lot like me in many respects. I was a Reformed Baptist before taking my sideways misstep into the Anglican / Episcopalian void [before finally entering The Catholic Church]. I was taught that the Pope is the Anti-christ and Rome is the whore of Babylon – and I taught it myself as a Baptist ‘pastor’… I taught a lot worse, too.

I mocked the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and did so repeatedly and publicly in my ‘sermons’. I led people away from the Truth, and into the kind of blasphemy that is soul destroying and worthy of Hell.

I actively recruited Roman Catholics to share in my protestant hatred of all things Catholic. I ‘evangelized’ them in numbers, and sadly, quite successfully – enough to fill the new church building I put up with their donations. I filled their ears with heresy, tried to rob them of their Blessed Mother and deny them access to the prayers of the Saints. I was a rabid anti-Catholic heretic who ‘thought he was doing God a favor’ by saving these poor superstitious souls.

‘Come out from among them and be ye separate,’ says the Lord, ‘and touch not the unclean thing.’ So said Isaiah and so said I. Only, I quoted it to Catholics who, I thought, couldn’t be Catholic and Christian. It was one or the other.

If anyone deserved Hell and not mercy it was me. It is nothing short of a miracle of grace that Jesus Christ decided to rescue me from my ignorance and turned that verse from Isaiah back on my own hard heart. ‘Come out from among them!’ and I did.

I will spend the rest of my life doing penance for what I have done. ‘I will show him what great things he [St. Paul] must suffer for My Name’, our Lord said to Annanias after St. Paul’s conversion. I expect no less, for, like him, I persecuted the Church. Yet, even this is a mercy in which I actually rejoice. After all, what is the alternative? To be left in my heresy and pride-filled protest against that Church that is good and true and beautiful, against the One who is Good… and reap what I have sown for all eternity. 

‘Rev’: Listen to the advice that Ann gave you. Run, don’t walk. Count the cost, so you can see, like I did, how precious Jesus is in His Church. When you lose your extended family, all your Baptist buddies, your ministry, and your congregation’s respect; when your mother, through her tears, tells you that ‘you’ve really hit rock bottom now and you couldn’t have done anything worse’; and when the cost includes losing your means of feeding your family, and having no rectory/parsonage or roof to put over the heads of your children, in other words: just about everything… that cost is NOTHING compared to the salvation of your soul, and that of your wife and children.

Then watch our Lord provide. He is no one’s debtor. Have faith and move forward… at the double.

Fr.
