Starting Monday Off Right: Danger, Titus! Danger! Edition

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

PATER NOSTER, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

The Presentation of Jesus in the Temple: The Antidote to Narcissism, Elitism and Oligarchy

Today, February 2nd, is the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple.  This is the Fourth Joyful Mystery of the Rosary, and the fruit of the mystery is OBEDIENCE.

Witnessing what we all have over the past decade, the total collapse of The Rule of Law in the private sector, the government and now The Church under the Bergoglian Antipapacy, the Feast of the Presentation is especially rich with meaning.

On the 40th day after His birth, Joseph and Mary, in perfect obedience to the Levitical Law, took Jesus to the Temple to be “redeemed”:

And every firstborn of men thou shalt redeem with a price. And when thy son shall ask thee tomorrow, saying: What is this? thou shalt answer him: With a strong hand did the Lord bring us forth out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. For when Pharao was hardened, and would not let us go, the Lord slew every firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of man to the firstborn of beasts: therefore I sacrifice to the Lord all that openeth the womb of the male sex, and all the firstborn of my sons I redeem.
Exodus 13: 13-15

Now, stop and think about the reflexive nature of this.  Jesus Christ IS HIMSELF GOD.  Jesus IS HIMSELF the God that brought Israel out of bondage in Egypt.  Jesus Christ IS HIMSELF GOD who commanded that all “that openeth the womb of the male sex” be sacrificed and redeemed. Jesus Christ IS HIMSELF the Author of The Law because HE HIMSELF IS THE LAW.

So, why did Mary and Joseph, and ultimately Christ Himself, an infant of 40 days of age, go to the Temple and perform this action?  Furthermore, why did Mary also at the same time undergo the ritual of Purification, the rite performed on women who had just given birth?

Shouldn’t Mary, Joseph, and ultimately Christ Himself have dispensed themselves from these ritual precepts given the fact that Jesus is God Incarnate, and Mary was preserved in immaculate purity, including her virginity, and thus had absolutely no need of any rite of Purification?

Why did they comply with these Levitical precepts when they were all so clearly above them?

Because love of The Law and obedience to it is love of God and obedience to Him.

Can you imagine the Blessed Virgin, striding haughtily into the Temple, St. Joseph, nose in the air, looking down his nose at the priests, and declaring, “My Son will NOT be redeemed, because He is the Son of the Living God, The Messiah, and thus The Law does not apply to Him because He is its Author!” And then the Blessed Virgin saying, “And I, having conceived Him by the Holy Ghost, carried Him and borne Him, am The Mother of God, and thus will not submit to the Ritual of Purification, because I am perfectly pure!”

All of the above statements are true, but yet we can hear how narcissistic, elitist, and devoid of TRUE HUMILITY and charity they would have been.  No, Jesus, Mary and Joseph all submitted to and obeyed The Law because to do so is to set a good example, namely by completely rejecting the spirit of elitism, narcissism and oligarchy that utterly permeates our culture. In submitting to The Law at not just the Presentation and Purification 40 days after Our Lord’s birth, but also eight days after His birth when He was circumcised, His Most Precious Blood being shed for the first time – a Proto-Passion, which, in and of itself COULD have been enough to redeem the whole world, because even ONE DROP of Our Lord’s Blood, contains in Itself an infinity of His Mercy – in these acts of GENUINE humility, Jesus, Mary and Joseph provided the most profound witness to the Rule of Law, and a total rejection of the spirit of narcissistic elitism.

What do we see today?  We see an Antipope, falsely installed after an invalid attempted abdication, literally telling people that to obey all of the Ten Commandments is harmful to the Christian life. We see the same Antipope attempting to convince every human being that THEIR CONSCIENCE, their FEELINGS are higher than God Himself, and thus trump The Law, and that man, not God, is the final arbiter of truth and judge of sin.  And, as is always the case in paradigms in which The Rule of Law is destroyed, we see the Rule of Man, that is, a paradigm in which the biggest thug wins, a paradigm in which blackmail, coercion, threats, and eventually physical violence are the only rule, the only “law”, a paradigm in which there is no right to petiton for the redress of grievances, a paradigm in which the jackboot of the biggest thug stomps the human face forever.

Think of every tin-pot dictator. Think of every bureaucrat hanger-on, slavishly defending their criminal overlords.  Think of every financial executive, stealing millions if not billions with zero consequence.  Think of every mafia and racketeering organization. Think of the faggots committing their acts of sacreligious, desacratory sodomy inside the Vatican, and throughout the world. All of it, ultimately, to prove to themselves that they are an elite caste, above the law, accountable only to themselves and their perverse passions.

Think of ourselves, and how many times we have convinced ourselves, in things both big and small, that “The Rules Don’t Apply To Me.”

The example set by Our Lord, Our Lady, and St. Joseph, which we celebrate today on The Feast of the Presentation, is the antidote to elitism, narcissism, and shines a spotlight on The Rule of Law and its criticality.

I hope you never pray the Fourth Joyful Mystery the same ever again.

Happy Feast of The Rule of Law!

Under Cyber Attack, New Web Host Found, Changing Servers Now

Yes, I came under some sort of cyber attack several days ago.  It appears to be affecting mostly Internet Explorer and MSN browser users.  Firefox, Safari, and Chrome seem to be fine. But caution is urged.

This happened at about the same time that I was given notice of termination by my web host of the past eight months, due to my public position on the Bergoglian Antipapacy.  Thankfully, yesterday, I finally found another web host, the site is being migrated, and the cyber attacks will be addressed and dealt with.

In researching web hosting companies, I quickly discerned that “free speech” and “no censorship” are now dog-whistles for “this firm will host porn”.  As I have said many times, satan is a very good chess player – masterful at setting up what appear to be checkmate scenarios, in this case, in order to speak the naked truth about Jesus Christ and His Holy Church, you have to do business with pornographers and sex-traffickers.  Um, no.  God always provides. Look at the chessboard again – you aren’t in checkmate.  You’re still alive, and even able to move offensively.

I’m sorry for any of you who had any damage done to your computers by this, or inconvenience of having to re-install anything. But, this is war, and things like this should be expected, and I’m afraid that we will only see an increase in denial-of-service, virus and trojan attacks as we move forward in this pivotal year of ARSH 2017.

ANSWERS: Why Won't Any Cardinals Speak Up Against Antipope Bergoglio?

The reason why none of the Cardinals, of which it is reliably reported and confirmed that no less than 30, THIRTY, have privately “dialogued” with Bergoglio about his heresy, will call this jerk out has been communicated to me.

The threat Antipope Bergoglio is holding over all of them is that if they resist him…

ANTIPOPE BERGOGLIO WILL CALL “VATICAN COUNCIL 3” AND CODIFY HIS SATANIC WILL IN THE CONTEXT OF AN “ECUMENICAL COUNCIL”.

THE CARDINALS, MANY OF WHOM BELIEVE, AND HAVE BELIEVED FOR A LONG TIME, THAT BERGOGLIO IS AN ANTIPOPE, THINK THAT THEIR BEST STRATEGY IS TO WAIT FOR HIM TO DIE, IN THE HOPES THAT HE DIES BEFORE CALLING “VATICAN 3”.

I have news for you, Emeninces.  Antipope Bergoglio is going to call “Vatican 3” and attempt to “lock everything in” no matter what. Once again, you are being played.  The only proper strategy against Antipope Bergoglio is FULL ON CHARGE. There is no “appeasing” satan or his minions.  You either fight, or you die, and die as filthy, miserable cowards.

St. Catherine of Siena, pray for us.
St. Vincent Ferrer, pray for us.

TOLDYA: Grand Master Festing's Resignation Coerced, Ties To Faggots Leaked By Team Bergoglio

Well, well, well.  Overnight more details emerged, confirming what I wrote yesterday.  First, Edward Pentin, who is almost single-handedly “saving Catholicism from itself” with his reportage, as one very solid priest friend put it, has details of the secret meeting in which Antipope Bergoglio illegally coerced Grand Master Festing into “resigning”.  Excerpted from RorateCaeli:

The Pope summoned Fra’ Festing to the Vatican on Jan. 24 on the strict instruction not to let anyone know about the audience — a modus operandi that has been used frequently during this pontificate, the Register has learned. During the meeting, Francis asked Fra’ Festing to resign immediately, to which the Grand Master agreed. The Pope then ordered him to write his resignation letter on the spot, according to informed sources.

The Register has also learned that the Pope told Fra’ Festing that the reason for asking for his resignation was the Pope’s conviction that he has to do a new, “complete investigation” of the Order, and that such an investigation would be “more easily conducted” if the Grand Master resigned.

The Register has been told that the Pope then had Fra’ Festing include in his letter of resignation that the Grand Master had asked for Boeselager’s dismissal “under the influence” of Cardinal Raymond Burke, the patron of the Order. However, as patron the cardinal has no governance in the Order and can only counsel the Grand Master, meaning the decision to dismiss the Grand Chancellor belonged solely to the Grand Master.

Emphases mine.  So Festing not only resigned himself, but also destroyed the SMOM and, AND threw Cardinal Burke under the bus, too.

The editors at Rorate go on to say (emphases mine):

The violence, irrationality, and resentment that led to this forced resignation (by its very nature, not free and invalid, as all forced resignations) make one wonder if perhaps another resignation, that of Pope Benedict XVI, announced surprisingly to the astonishment of all on February 11, 2013, was not obtained with the use of similar methods.

Who knows?… What once sounded like an insane conspiracy theory does not look so impossible anymore. These are the methods the mafia currently in power use. It looks indeed not unlike what is being done to the Grand Master and the Sovereign Order of Malta. Honestly: would you doubt anything now?

I preferred the pejorative “dippy”. DIPPY conspiracy theory. Except, you know, completely rational, grounded in objective reality, and completely unbiased by fear of losing earthly position, benefits or social esteem.

But wait! There’s more!  Just as secular regimes leak to their ideological fellow-travelers in the “press”, so too does the Bergoglio regime.  In this case, the Tablet, a flamingly pro-sodomy “c”atholic newspaper out of the U.K. leaks the connection to faggotry that was used against Festing.  Citation HERE.

 

Finally, The Tablet argues that Vatican investigators are “aware” of a case of child abuse in the congregation that former Grand Master Festing would have handled negligently.

A knight taken by Festing to the Sovereign Council, Duncan Gallie , was one of four in charge of an internal investigation of a former sexton of the Order in London, Vernon Quaintance, accused of sexual assault of minors.

Gallie and the other gentlemen concluded in 2011 that no action should be taken against Quaintance, who in 2014 was found guilty of nine counts of abuse and possession of child pornography. In spite of everything , Gallie continues to this day living in Rome and participating in the meetings of the Sovereign Council.

I looked up the details on this, and this Vernon Quaintance faggot was the sacristan for the SMOM in London, and would lure young boys out in his car, and then demand that they allow him to “inspect” their penises to see if they were circumcised or not.  You know, for science.

Folks, two things.  First, there is NO SUCH THING AS A HARMLESS FAGGOT.  They are human poison, conscienceless fiends, covering for their allies and blackmailing their enemies.  Bergoglio bends over backwards to protect his boy-raping faggot buddies, but, as is intrinsic to that culture, will not hesitate to destroy his ideological enemies by leveraging and exposing their faggotry and pedophilia.  Hypocrisy is not only irrelevant to these monsters, they luxuriate in it.  This business of orthodox, believing, even Traditional Catholics looking the other way at faggotry in their midst, deluding themselves into thinking, “Yeah, he’s a fag, but he’s on our side, and he’s SO WITTY….” No. Enough of this “Evelyn Waugh faggot culture”.  It will be the death of all of us.

Second, ALL FAGGOTS ARE POTENTIAL CHILD ABUSERS.  ALL. OF. THEM.  It is just a matter of time and opportunity.  Every homosexual, male or female, is a clear and present danger to children. Period.

This is what was leaked.  One has to wonder if there isn’t more, because, again, for Festing to completely destroy a 900 year old order AND throw Cardinal Burke under the bus, well, whatever Bergoglio said to him, it must have been… persuasive.

In Overthrowing and Annexing the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, Bergoglio Is Intentionally Setting Up The Vatican For Exactly The Same

Inside baseball, folks, but of massive importance.

As you may know, the Vatican is a sovereign entity, and in Rome, when you cross the street and enter St. Peter’s Square, you are crossing an international border from the Republic of Italy into the Vatican City State.  Well, the Sovereign Military Order of Malta (SMOM for short), is a charitable order which is also an internationally recognized sovereign entity.  Yes, it is a micro-state. Its territory is basically one building – one BUILDING – in Rome. The SMOM is NOT NOT NOT the same thing as the island nation of Malta.  The SMOM USED to be the government of Malta from ARSH 1530, reigning in justice and beloved by the Maltese people, until the French invaded the island of Malta and ejected the Knights of Malta in ARSH 1835.

Back in the day, these guys were stone-cold butt-kickers and they literally saved Europe from Islamic takeover.  But they were also known all over Christendom for their charitable works, and much of what we now call “modern medicine” originated on the Island of Malta in the hospitals and universities of the SMOM.

What is important to understand right now, is that the SMOM is a SOVEREIGN ENTITY.  It is its own little country, even though its physical territory is minuscule, because they are in exile, and have been since ARSH 1835.

So, Antipope Bergoglio REALLY hates these guys.  Why? First, the leadership, including the head-of-state, called the Grand Master, are TRADITIONAL CATHOLICS.  They have the Tridentine Mass in their chapel in their building in Rome.  Second, they are nobility.  The Grand Master is technically a prince.  Third, they have money and assets. So Bergoglio hates them because Bergoglio is a Marxist and almost certainly a Freemason, and also just a horrible, small little man capable only of anger, hatred, envy and fear.

So if you want to know how this whole thing went down and why, I think I can illuminate some things.

Antipope Bergoglio fires Cardinal Burke from his position as basically the Chief Justice of the Vatican Supreme Court and installs him as the Cardinal Parton of the SMOM.

The number three guy in SMOM is a German named Boeselager who isn’t exactly known for his Catholic orthodoxy.  In fact, he refused to do anything about the SMOM’s hospital in London, Sts. John and Elizabeth, which had jumped enthusiastically onto the EXTEMELY FINANCIALLY LUCRATIVE In Vitro Fertilization and – get this – transvestite mutilation surgery (“gender reassignment surgery”) bandwagons. Ka-Ching!!

Also Boeselager oversaw the distribution of condoms and birth control pills to brown people in Asia and Africa, but that is actually small potatoes, relatively speaking.  The big deal is the hospitals, specifically the lucrative mortally sinful businesses mentioned above.  If you click over to the official website for Sts. John and Elizabeth hospital, you will clearly see the SMOM’s eight-pointed cross as the hospital’s logo.

Also factoring in is a recent NINE FIGURE donation ($118 million give or take), currently held in a trust in Switzerland.  The faction of the SMOM that is, shall we say, less than devout in its practice of The One True Faith, wants the Trad Catholics purged, and they want control of the money, and the freedom to continue to engage the lucrative IVF and transgender mutilation markets unhindered, and to sterilize, either mechanically or chemically, as many brown people as possible.

Now enter Antipope Bergoglio and the “New World Order”, who want nothing less than the complete destruction of the Catholic Church, replacing it with a “One World Religion” under the auspices of a “One World Government”.  Now follow this:

Cardinal Burke goes to Antipope Bergoglio to inform him of these morally depraved goings-on within the SMOM after an internal investigation, including the IVF and transvestite surgical mutilation businesses, as well as the contraceptives distribution, and that Boeselager is complicit, and also tied to Freemasonry. Bergoglio, being a conscienceless psychopath, tells Cardinal Burke to “clean out” the Freemasons, and tells Cardinal Burke that he (Bergoglio) supports the removal of Boeselager, and to get it done with his blessing.

Folks, Cardinal Burke would not have claimed that he had a mandate from Bergoglio unless he (Bergoglio) explicitly told him so. Cardinal Burke is naive, but he is not a liar.  So, Cardinal Burke goes back to the Grand Master and tells him that yes, Bergoglio issued a clear mandate and support, and even told us to “clean out the Freemasons”.

Now here is where Cardinal Burke’s seeming obliviousness, naïveté, and continued false premise of Bergoglio being the pope, or even Catholic for that matter, comes into play.  Bergoglio’s strong ties to Freemasonry have been known for years.  Good grief, the Italian Lodge issued a statement upon Bergoglio’s “election” in which one could almost hear them peeing their pants with joy.  Bergoglio doesn’t want Freemasons cleared out of anything – he is in bed with them and their “New World Order” agenda.  Bergoglio probably IS A FREEMASON.  COME ON.

Further, Bergoglio, not being Catholic and despising Catholic morality, especially with regards to the Sixth Commandment, clearly doesn’t view contraception as a sin, having railed at Catholics who “breed like rabbits”. Also, Bergoglio has publicly received a transvestite woman and her “wife”.  He sees no problem with any of these issues.  COME ON.

And, Cardinal Burke knows that Bergoglio hates his guts. Again, COME ON.  Being dumb is NOT virtuous.

So, the Grand Master, with Cardinal Burke in the room, indicating the “support” of the Holy See, fire Boeselager.  And Bergoglio’s trap is sprung.  Bergoglio denies his conversation with Cardinal Burke, and instead sends his toadies out to claim that all he told Cardinal Burke was that the SMOM should “dialogue” with Boselager.  Bergoglio then sends a group of his fellow travelers to “investigate”. The SMOM, being a Sovereign Micro-state, issues a statement asserting its Sovereignity and refusing to cooperate with Bergoglio’s henchmen.

Bergoglio then summons the Grand Master, Matthew Festing, and fires him, and then announces that he, Bergoglio, will be sending a “delegate” to oversee the SMOM, which, make absolutely no mistake, will be the de facto ruler.

Now, hold on.  This is the Vatican City State annexing a Sovereign Entity, the SMOM. This is like the head of state in France “firing” the head of state in Poland and installing a shadow ruler .  Or the head of state in Russia firing the head of state in, say, Finland, and installing a “supervisor”. If Putin were to install his own government in Finland, wouldn’t Finland have been annexed by Russia at that point?  Of course. Remember Vichy France, anyone?

Now lots of people who are following this are saying, “But, but, but… doesn’t “Pope Francis” realize that this sets a precedent by which the Vatican City State could lose ITS sovereignty???”

Um, YES. Exactly. For Bergoglio and his New World Order comrades, this precedent of annexation of a sovereign micro-state IS A FEATURE, NOT A BUG.

Bergoglio DESPISES God and His Holy Church.  He hates it, and he wants it destroyed. What Bergoglio and the Soros-Freemasonic-NWO axis want is a “One World religion” that is FULLY under a “One World Government”.  This is a big reason why Bergoglio so loves the Lutheran sect – Bergoglio wants a series of “state churches”, subsisting within and under regional governments – think “State Church of Norway”, “State Church of Denmark”, “State Church of Sweden”, etc..  This is also why Bergoglio is aggressively selling out the Catholic Church in China, and instead throwing open support to the Red Chinese State “catholic” Church, a pure fabrication.

The fact that Bergoglio seems to be setting a legal precedent for having the Vatican “annexed” by some outside body, is not some oversight or misstep on his part.  He is setting up the Vatican to be seized, assets and all, by his OneWorldGovernment buddies.

Read Elizabeth Yore’s excellent reportage on Bergoglio’s myriad connections to the NWO at The Remnant Newspaper HERE.

If Cardinal Burke remains silent and doesn’t witness to what Bergoglio said to him, and Bergoglio’s lying and double-crossing, I suspect it is because Cardinal Burke, clinging to the false premise that Antipope Bergoglio is the Vicar of Christ, thinks that it would be an act of loyalty to protect the reputation of the See of Peter. (Sighs heavily, rolls eyes, bangs head on table)

DO YOU SEE HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO OPERATE ON A TRUE PREMISE, AND HOW FALSE PREMISES YIELD CATASTOPHIC COROLLARIES AND RESULTS, AND WHY THE ARGUMENT THAT THE IDENTITY OF THE POPE IS UNIMPORTANT OR IRRELEVANT IS SO UTTERLY AND COMPLETELY WRONG?

Et cognoscetis veritatem, et veritas liberabit vos.
(And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.)
John 8:32

As for Grand Master Festing, who just a few days ago was willing to stand his ground and defend the Sovreignity of the SMOM, and then totally, completely capitulated and thus DESTROYED a 900 year old Sovereign Order, well, knowing what I now know about Rome, the specter of blackmail hangs over everything.  Like I said recently, NO ONE in Rome is any more than one degree of separation from fags. They are absolutely everywhere.

I’ll conclude with the prophetic words of Venerable Fulton Sheen:

“The False Prophet will have a religion without a cross. A religion without a world to come. A religion to destroy religions. There will be a counterfeit church. Christ’s Church [the Catholic Church] will be one. And the False Prophet will create the other. The false church will be worldly ecumenical, and global. It will be a loose federation of churches. And religions forming some type of global association. A world parliament of churches. It will be emptied of all divine content and will be the mystical body of the Antichrist. The mystical body on earth today will have its Judas Iscariot and he will be the false prophet. Satan will recruit him from among our bishops.”

I'm Not A Petiton Person, But I Signed the Petition To Reinstate LTC Terry Lakin

Before I went to live in the Van Down By The River/Crick, I had the chance to meet the real deal in terms of protesting the Obama regime, flight surgeon LTC Terry Lakin.  After his release from the United States Disciplinary Barracks after serving his 5 month sentence, one of his first jobs was in Colorado, and he would drive his RV past my office as he commuted from the airport.  So we met up for lunch.  He is a surprisingly soft-spoken man, not at all what you would expect from a man who went to prison and lost his career and pension because he knew, as I knew, that Obama was obviously not a natural born citizen as defined for centuries in common law and explicitly defined in the SCOTUS decision Minor vs Happersett, and thus not eligible under Article II, section 1, clause 5 of the US Constitution (such as it was) for the presidency.  LTC Lakin very rightly pointed out in his defense that uniformed military serving under an illegitimate commander-in-chief would NOT be protected under the Geneva Conventions.

Alas, as with the Antipope Bergoglio situation (funny how many analogues there are between Obama and Bergoglio, eh?), the effeminates so vastly outnumber the virile that justice is, at this point, merely a pipe dream.

BUT, even though I am not a fan of Trump, and still believe that the US was overthrown and that the Thing™ In Washington DC is NOT the United States of America, and not really a fan of petitions at this late and dark hour, I did sign this petition for my friend LTC Lakin to be pardoned and reinstated with full pension as a gesture of support for Terry.  It can’t hurt.

The Conversion of St. Paul on the Road to Damascus, detail. Caravaggio, ARSH 1601, Church of Santa Maria del Popolo, Rome.

Today is the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul.

Nearly all Protestant Bibles and Post-Vatican II Bibles delete the words of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to Saul in Acts 9:5. The full verse of Acts 9:5 is:

VERSE 4:  And falling on the ground, he heard a voice saying to him: Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou Me?
Et cadens in terram audivit vocem dicentem sibi: Saule, Saule, quid me persequeris?

VERSE 5:  Who said: Who art thou, Lord? And He: I am Jesus whom thou persecutest. It is hard for thee to kick against the goad.
Qui dixit: Quis es Domine? Et ille: Ego sum Jesus, quem tu persequeris: durum est tibi contra stimulum calcitrare.

What does “It is hard for thee to kick against the goad” mean??

A goad is a cattle prod, a stick with a sharp iron tip that was used to drive oxen pulling a plow in antiquity. You might have heard the verb “to goad”, as in, “She goaded her husband into buying her a fur coat.” The way the goad worked, if the ox kicked at it to resist it, it would actually drive further into its flesh.  So, the more the ox tried to resist the prod of its master, the more it suffered. In this saying, Christ is referencing a well-known ancient Greek proverb:

“To bear lightly the neck’s yoke brings strength; but kicking against the goads is the way of failure.”
-Pindar (died 438 B.C.)

See how that ties directly to Our Blessed Lord’s use of the imagery of the yoke in Matthew 11…?

VERSE 29: Take up My yoke upon you, and learn of Me, because I am meek, and humble of heart: and you shall find rest to your souls.
Tollite jugum meum super vos, et discite a me, quia mitis sum, et humilis corde: et invenietis requiem animabus vestris.

VERSE 30: For My yoke is sweet and My burden light.
Jugum enim meum suave est, et onus meum leve.

The more we resist the Truth of Jesus Christ and His Holy Church, of which The Law is an integral part, the more we suffer, the harsher God’s discipline necessarily becomes.  Proverbs 13:15 says, “The way of the unfaithful is hard…” and Proverbs 15:10 says, “Stern discipline awaits him who leaves the path.”

The reason that Antipope Bergoglio is so wildly popular with “the world” is because he ratifies and confirms people in their mortal sin, most particularly those sins relating to the Sixth Commandment, and also because it is very clear that he DOESN’T ACTUALLY BELIEVE ANY OF THAT CATHOLIC “BULLSHIT”, thus ratifying and confirming all of those who are heretics and apostates within The Church, are outside The Church, have left The Church, and atheists.  They falsely believe that Bergoglio is The Vicar of Christ, or at least a legitimate representative of The Church, and that he is finally confirming that the Natural and Divine Law is not only BULLSHIT, but that they will be HAPPIER and their lives EASIER and BETTER if they break it, and he, Bergoglio, is their “all-merciful liberator” from it. What Antipope Bergoglio is trying to do is vilify and suppress the conscience of man such that it is totally silenced and replaced with sensual, material, earthly, narcissistic, concupiscent pleasure as the only metric by which man weighs and judges his decisions.

This is, quite simply, SATANIC, and if one STILL can’t see that Antipope Bergoglio is a man wholly in league with satan, actively seeking the ruin of souls, then I reckon one never will.

Ever wonder why sex perverts become more and more miserable, many unto suicide, despite the fact that our depraved culture hails them as heroes?  Why did multi-millionaire celebrity pop singer George Michael, as just one example, despite all of his wealth, popularity and complete cultural acceptance, cruise filthy public toilets for sodomy with strangers, and ultimately kill himself with alcohol and hard drugs, crack cocaine being his purported favorite?  Why do transvestites, today held up as heroes and as superior beings, have one of the highest suicide rates in the world? Why are psychopathic arch-criminals like John Corzine and Hillary Clinton, among so many others, so consistently horrible, miserable, cruel, abusive, evil people behind closed doors? Ever wonder why divorce rates skyrocketed after the introduction and social acceptance of birth control in the 1960s?

Because it is hard to kick against the goad.

Now you know what that means.

And please, get yourself a Bible that includes EVEYTHING, properly translated, and when you see some word or phrase you don’t understand, LOOK IT UP.  This pretty much means, for English speakers, a Douay-Rheims Bible.

Christ, have mercy on us.

St. Timothy, ordained Bishop of Ephesus by St. Paul, was killed by a mob of enraged pagans in ARSH 97 at the age of 80 because he tried to stop a pagan festival and procession in honor of the pagan goddess Diana. After beating him with cudgels and dragging him through the streets, they finally stoned him to death on Mt. Pion.

Of course, according to “their lord and savior Bergoglio™”, St. Timothy was sinning in his proselytism, and also in his fundamentalism and failure to encounter, dialog, and accompany his pagan neighbors.  How dare he condemn them for their religious traditions? How dare he judge them? How DARE HE force his beliefs on them, closing himself into a rigid and sterile enclosure of doctrine and absolutes?  According to “their lord and savior Bergoglio™”, the stupid, arrogant fool got what he deserved.

St. Timothy, pray for The Remnant Church.

Trump Speech: No First Person Singular Pronouns?

I watched it, praying that nothing bad happen, and so far so good.  But can someone check/confirm that Trump did not use any first person singular pronouns? If that is the case, kudos to the speechwriter for that.  It wasn’t a particularly great speech, and Trump seemed a bit nervous (which I actually think is a good thing), but if there was not a single first person singular pronoun, that makes it pretty awesome, and would be an excellent, excellent dig at Obama.

Christ, have mercy on us.

UPDATE:  I did find one in a partial transcript: “The oath of office I take today…”

That might be it.  Everything else is “we”, “our”, “you”, “yours”.

UPDATE 2:  I’m not the only one who noticed.

I have plenty of things to say (if you read Denninger, it will be echoing that), and have received some very good and sincere questions about where I stand vis-a-vis the ‘Mercian Gubmint.  But for today, hey, I’m glad that miserable, retarded bi**h and his fat wife are gone, and that the Pig in the Pantsuit and her serial rapist beard husband will never be “president” of the Former United States.  I even pulled up the Dances With Wolves “Journey To Fort Sedgwick” theme on youtube.  So, yeah, today gladness that Bathhouse Barry and Mooch are gone, but tomorrow, back to dealing with reality. And folks, the reality is REAL.

(Also, speaking purely in my capacity as a chickie-poo, I liked Melania Knauss’ dress very much.  Beautiful cut, perfect length, exquisite tailoring.)
