Everyone loves Ambrosia…

Today is the Feast of Saint Ambrose of Milan, the great Doctor of the Church, died ARSH 397.

Below are a few choice quotations. All good, certainly, but having the hallmark dish at every American potluck dinner for the past 70 years named after you cannot be understated as an achievement. I mean, Cool-hhhWhip AND marshmallows? Canned mandarin oranges and pineapple? Shredded sweetened coconut? MARASCHINO CHERRIES?

Happy Feast.

Saint Ambrose, pray for us.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us.

When we speak about wisdom, we are speaking about Christ. When we speak about virtue, we are speaking about Christ. When we speak about justice, we are speaking about Christ. When we speak about peace, we are speaking about Christ. When we speak about truth and life and redemption, we are speaking about Christ.

Our own evil inclinations are far more dangerous than any external enemies.

As in paradise, God walks in the Holy Scriptures, seeking man.

Love is like a shadow, one can only catch it by falling into it.

In some causes silence is dangerous.

When we find ouselves in some grave danger we must not lose courage but firmly trust in God, for where there is the greatest danger, there is also the greatest help from Him who wants to be called our ‘Help’ in times of peace and in times of tribulation.

Remember, then, that you received a spiritual seal, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of knowledge and reverence, the spirit of holy fear. Keep safe what you received. God the Father sealed you, Christ the Lord strengthened you and sent the Spirit into your hearts as the pledge of what is to come.

True repentance is to cease from sin.

Law is twofold — natural and written. The natural law is in the heart, the written law on tables. All men are under the natural law.

The Lord Jesus Himself proclaims, ‘This is My Body.’ Before the blessing of the heavenly words something of another character is spoken of; after consecration it is designated ‘Body’. He Himself speaks of His Blood. Before the consecration it is spoken of as something else; after the consecration it is spoken of as ‘Blood’. And you say, ‘Amen’, that is, ‘It is true.’ What the mouth speaks, let the mind within confess; what the tongue utters, let the heart feel.

To be content, to find true love, is what essentially drives us all, but if found, would it be recognized?

Blessed, plainly, is that life which is not valued at the estimation of outsiders, but is known, as judge of itself, by its own inner feelings. It needs no popular opinions as its reward in any way; nor has it any fear of punishments. Thus the less it strives for glory, the more it rises above it. For to those who seek for glory, that reward in the shape of present things is but a shadow of future ones, and is a hindrance to eternal life, as it is written in the Scriptures: ‘Truly I say to you, they have received their reward’

It was not by dialectic that it pleased God to save His people.

We ask for what reason our Lord was unwilling to state the time of His coming (cf. Mk. 13:31-32). If we ask it, we shall not find it is owing to ignorance, but to wisdom. For it was not to our advantage to know; in order that we being ignorant of the actual moments of judgment to come, might ever be as it were on guard, and set on the watch-tower of virtue, and so avoid the habits of sin; lest the day of the Lord should come upon us in the midst of our wickedness.

Repost by Request… HUMANICIDE: Pfizer admits in its own mRNA jab trial documentation that non-jabbed people can be ENVIRONMENTALLY EXPOSED to the jab’s spike proteins by INHALATION and SKIN CONTACT

(Originally penned and posted in April ARSH 2021.)

It’s not a vaccine or anything even remotely related to vaccines. It’s a HUMANICIDE. And it sheds and is highly transmissible by Pfizer’s own gleeful admission.

And the self-extermination of mankind required absolutely nothing more than strangers on television re-naming common seasonal colds and flu, and thus starting a global religion.

The only thing left to see is how effective these HUMANICIDES are. Will they kill outright, or are they, as suspected from day one, a mass sterilization project? (We now see from excess deaths due to “Suddenly” and the stunning reductions in live births that it is, in fact, BOTH. -AB ’22)

*FIVE WARNINGS: “If my requests are not heeded, Russia will spread her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions of the Church; the good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various entire nations will be annihilated.”

Mailbag: “It’s amazing that A.I. can read the dataset, but Trad, Inc. can’t.”

(Fascinating email over the transom.)


There is a new AI program being publicly beta tested by OpenAI. It’s called ChatGPT and it’s designed to interact in conversational speech. (It also seems capable of writing passable poetry, though it fails at jokes because it can’t really understand punch lines.) I don’t understand the exact workings of this AI but it appears to mine the available data on the internet and form it into intelligible conversational English.

After about a half hour of messing around with it, I gave it the following command:

“Write why Pope Benedict is still pope and not Bergoglio.”

It then responded:

Pope Benedict is still pope and not Bergoglio because Pope Benedict did not resign or abdicate the papacy. When Pope Benedict announced his intention to retire in 2013, he made it clear that he would continue to hold the office of pope until a new pope was elected to take his place. (This is incorrect. -AB) This means that Pope Benedict is still the pope, and Jorge Bergoglio, also known as Pope Francis, is the current pope. (Also incorrect, but it gets back on track in the next paragraph…. -AB)

Additionally, the Catholic Church does not recognize the concept of co-popes or joint papacies. This means that only one person can hold the office of pope at any given time, and there can be no overlap or sharing of the papal duties. This means that Pope Benedict is still the pope, and Bergoglio is the current pope, but they cannot both hold the office simultaneously. (Apparently the A.I. also struggles with internal contradictions and violations of the Law of Non-contradiction as much as Trad, Inc. partisans do. -AB)

Overall, Pope Benedict is still pope and not Bergoglio because Pope Benedict did not resign or abdicate the papacy, and the Catholic Church does not recognize co-popes or joint papacies. (A strong finish. -AB)

Out of the mouth of electronic babes!

It’s amazing that AI can read the data set but Trad Inc. can’t.

I pray for you every day, please pray for me and my family.

Yours in Christ,


“He considers that this title corresponds to reality.” A NonVeni Mark greatest hit.

(NonVeni Mark wrote this up several years ago, and it can’t be said any better, so I am shamelessly lifting and reposting it. -AB ’22)

“He considers that this title corresponds to reality.”

That headline was the response given by Abp. Ganswein to the question of certain irregularities in the papal abdication. Pope Benedict had supposedly decided to resign, yet had chosen to retain his vesture, retain his title as pope, albeit with ’emeritus’ added (which is impossible), retain his residency within the Vatican enclosure, and his form of address as remaining “His Holiness”. HERE

The press questioned, “Why?”

The answer, He considers that this title corresponds to reality.”

In Pope Benedict’s mind (“he considers”) that the title “Pope (Emeritus)” and the formal address “His Holiness” corresponds to reality.

But hey, I’m the crazy one for pointing out obvious stuff. Just go ahead and try to suggest on the interweebs that Pope Benedict thinks he retained some portion of the papacy. YOU’RE TWISTING HIS WORDS! YOU’RE NOT A MIND READER! After all, we clearly had a conclave, and “Francis” was clearly elected, and this result seems to have been clearly greeted by peaceful universal acceptance by the cardinals, right?

Do you know what is coming up this Saturday? Everyone is talking about it… The Royal Wedding! Harry and Meghan! It will be televised all around the world, and tens of millions of people will watch. It will look spectacular. All the rituals will play out, the ceremony will unfold, vows exchanged, and the prince and princess will be husband and wife.

Except they won’t be. You see, Meghan is still married to her first husband, because divorce doesn’t exist. Divorce is anti-reality. (Markle is married to the Hollywood Jew Trevor Engleson, and as both were unbaptized at the time, the marriage is a totally valid marriage and as with any valid marriage, indissoluble. -AB ’22) So all that will take place on Saturday is the appearance of a wedding, but in reality is simply fancy formalized adultery and fornication. Even though everything will be done correctly according to formula, nothing will actually happen. It doesn’t matter that all the attendees and everyone watching on television will believe that a wedding just took place. The metaphysical reality of the situation is that nothing happened, because a prior event (her actual wedding) nullifies the “result” of Saturday’s proceedings. In the words of Louie Verrechio, “an act of deception, no matter how cleverly conceived or convincingly executed, cannot change the objective reality of a given situation.“ HERE

Which is exactly why the 2013 conclave didn’t actually happen. It looked like it happened, everyone believed at the time it was real, but now we know that the weight of the evidence points towards a prior event nullifying its occurrence: Pope Benedict intending to hold on to at least part of the papacy. And if that is true, which I believe with moral certainty to be the case, then he didn’t resign any of the papacy, because Canon 188 says he didn’t. No resignation, no conclave.

“He considers that this title corresponds to reality.”

Out of error, truth.

“The “always” is also a “for ever” – there can no longer be a return to the private sphere. My decision to resign the active exercise of the ministry does not revoke this.” – Pope Benedict

Archbishop Gänswein:

… Pope Francis and Benedict are not two popes “in competition” with one another, but represent one “expanded” Petrine Office with “an active member” and a “contemplative.”

“Therefore, from 11 February 2013, the papal ministry is not the same as before,” [Ganswein] said.

“…before and after his resignation” Benedict has viewed his task as “participation in such a ‘Petrine ministry’.”  

“He left the Papal Throne and yet, with the step he took on 11 February 2013, he has not abandoned this ministry,” Gänswein explained, something “quite impossible after his irrevocable acceptance of the office in April 2005.”

And lastly, Professor de Mattei:

“Benedict XVI had the ability to renounce the papacy, but consequently, would have had to give up the name of Benedict XVI, dressing in white, and the title of Pope emeritus: in a word, he would have had to definitively cease from being Pope, also leaving Vatican City. Why did he not do so? Because Benedict XVI seems to be convinced of still being Pope, although a Pope who has renounced the exercise of the Petrine ministry. This conviction is born of a profoundly-erroneous ecclesiology, founded on a sacramental and not juridical conception of the Papacy. If the Petrine munus is a sacrament and not a juridical office, then it has an indelible character, but in this case it would be impossible to renounce the office. The resignation presupposes the revocability of the office, and is then irreconcilable with the sacramental vision of the Papacy.”
