Musical Interlude

I am thinking today of that beautiful land
We shall reach when the sun goeth down;
When through wonderful grace by my Savior I stand,
Will there be any stars in my crown?

Will there be any stars, any stars in my crown,
When at evening the sun goeth down?
When I wake with the blest in the mansions of rest,
Will there be any stars in my crown?

In the strength of the Lord let me labor and pray,
Let me watch as a winner of souls;
That bright stars may be mine in that glorious day,
When His praise like the sea-billow rolls.

Oh, what joy it will be when His face I behold,
Living gems at His feet to lay down;
It would sweeten my bliss in the city of gold,
Should there be any stars in my crown.

Starting Sunday Off Right: Holy Family 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 Holy Family, Claudio Coello, late 17th century

As the enemy infiltrators push hard for the destruction of marriage and the family going into the second “Synod on the Family”, just a point of clarification that they will try to pervert in order to ratify their hellish plans.  You already have heard, and over the next ten months will continue to hear many of these fiends say that Our Lord was conceived “out of wedlock”.  This is BLASPHEMY – no matter WHO says it.

The Blessed Virgin was a consecrated virgin to the temple, and some of these consecrated temple virgins were married in PERPETUAL VIRGINAL MARRIAGES.  Such was the case with Mary and Joseph.  These marriages had two phases – a betrothal phase (which is NOT NOT NOT “engagement”) wherein the virgin wife had not yet moved into the home of her husband, and the cohabiting phase wherein the couple cohabited, BUT NEVER CONSUMMATED.  But the marriage was done BEFORE the Annunciation.  The Blessed Virgin Mary was NOT an “unwed mother”.  When the Angel Gabriel appeared to her, she was already married.

Just stop and think about it.  Use common sense.  Do you honestly believe that God Almighty would Incarnate in the womb of an UNMARRIED woman, thus degrading the sacrament of marriage and thus giving satan a cudgel with which to destroy human civilization?  Really?  God – who can do anything He wants at any time – would completely pull the rug out from under the entire economy of the family unit in the very act of His Incarnation?  Of course not.  He incarnated in the womb of a woman, consecrated to the temple since childhood, married in a virginal marriage, such that Our Lord would be BOTH born of a virgin AND a married woman and her husband – His foster father, and to them He submitted Himself.

Please remember this, and tell everyone you know when the infiltrators begin their “Mary was an unwed mother” blasphemies.  No matter WHO says it.

If you would like a fantastic and edifying insight into the Holy Family, I highly recommend “The Life of Saint Joseph as manifested by Our Lord, Jesus Christ to Maria Cecilia Baij, O.S.B.”  



How could trillions of dollars be laundered from the Wash DC regime to Saudi Arabia? Why, through Citigroup, of course.

A clever reader with probably more knowledge of the Middle East than they would care to have put before me a very interesting question.  Is the US laundering money to Saudi Arabia through Citigroup in order to “hedge” against, or compensate Saudi Arabia for the drop in oil prices?

Well, it sure as hell looks like it.

I recently tweeted the reportage on the massive derivatives position being accumulated by Citigroup (the parent Holding Company) and Citibank (the bank held by Citigroup HoldCo) – $135 TRILLION.  Citi is adding roughly $10 TRILLION PER QUARTER, and the bank is now holding MORE derivatives than the parent HoldCo, which is unprecedented and shocking.  Even worse, the bank – the derivatives holdings of which are now “guaranteed” by the FDIC, which is to say the US TAXPAYERS, thanks to the Cromnibus bill – is where the exposure is being added – $9 TRILLION was added to the Citibank portfolio within the third quarter of 2014 alone – the latest available data.  Citi is the only big bank that is INCREASING its derivatives position, all the other big banks have modestly reduced their derivatives exposure in the same time period.  But Citi is piling it on as hard and fast as it can – NINE TRILLION $ IN ONE QUARTER!!

Do you know who the largest private shareholder of Citigroup is?

Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Abdulaziz Alsaud.  Mister Saudi Arabia.

So, I’m going to indulge in a little dot connecting here.  I don’t think this is terribly far-fetched.

I hypothesize that the Washington DC regime is providing Saudi Arabia with a “laundered short hedge” on oil prices through Citi.  Citi “borrows” money from the Federal Reserve at next to zero percent, plows it into swaps (a form of highly leveraged derivative wherein cashflows, not assets, are the underlying “commodity”) at this stunning clip because all swaps are held “off balance sheet”.   Remember that term from MF Global?

The position is such that it makes money when oil prices drop, thus “hedging” Saudi Arabia.  If the poop hits the fan, thanks to the Cromnibus, 100% of Citibank’s derivatives portfolio is now under the umbrella of the FDIC, which we all know means the Federal Reserve printing dollars to bail out their friends.  The FDIC is only sitting on a few billion in assets.  It’s a joke.

So, the Washington DC regime has essentially posted YOU AND SEVERAL GENERATIONS OF YOUR PROGENY as the collateral guaranteeing a short hedge on oil prices that it is providing for Saudi Arabia through its ownership of Citigroup.  In other words, MONEY LAUNDERING, EXCEPT ON A MULTI-GENERATIONAL, CIVILIZATIONAL SCALE.

Lee Greenwood could not be reached for comment.

*”Short” means “to sell” or “is sold”.  A short position is one that appreciates in value if the price of the underlying commodity goes DOWN.  The opposite is “Long”, which means “to buy” or “is bought”.



Cut the Crap: The problem is islam, and it has to be exterminated. Period.

So, a little review for those of you who may be new.

1.  Islam is a political system, NOT a religion, and unless and until humanity wakes the hell up and STOPS referring to it as a religion, there is no hope.  Islam is a hyper-aggressive, militaristic, expansionist, totalitarian political system designed to create a super-rich micro-oligarchical ruling class with a massive, destitute, genetically handicapped underclass below.  The paper-thin faux-religious facade was a conscious, specific con from the very beginning – much like Mormonism and Scientology – a pure racket using borrowed and piggy-backed religious motifs to lend credibility to a massive, loosely-knit network of crime syndicate cells.

Here is a quote from Osama bin Laden that sums it all up:

“Our talks with the infidel West and our conflict with them ultimately revolve around one issue; one that demands our total support, with power and determination, with one voice, and it is: Does Islam, or does it not, force people by the power of the sword to submit to its authority corporeally if not spiritually? Yes. There are only three choices in Islam: [1] either willing submission [conversion]; or [2] payment of the jizya, through physical, though not spiritual, submission to the authority of Islam; or [3] the sword, for it is not right to let him [an infidel] live. The matter is summed up for every person alive: Either submit, or live under the suzerainty of Islam, or die.”
–Osama Bin Laden
(The Al Qaeda Reader, p. 42)

Definition of suzerainty: a situation in which a region or people is a compulsory tributary to a more powerful entity, which controls its foreign affairs while allowing the tributary vassal state internal autonomy.

Please note that the quote above makes perfectly clear that islam DOES NOT CARE IF YOU ACTUALLY BELIEVE ANY OF THEIR FAUX-RELIGIOUS BULLSHIT OR NOT – BECAUSE THAT’S NOT THE POINT.  All that matters is EARTHLY submission and control of landmass.  All of that five-times-per-day sticking one’s butt in the air while some bisexual shrieks about a non-existent pagan moon deity over a loudspeaker is not “prayer”.  It is an outward sign of submission to the musloid political system.  NOTHING more.  It’s a gang signal.  It’s a salute.

Islam isn’t about “allah” or “paradise” or “prayer” or “spirituality” or how human beings should relate to one another or how human beings should relate to a “god” or the eternal fate of the human soul. THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT ANY OF THAT. Islam is about acquiring physical, earthly territory and installing a totalitarian government over the earth that provides a cadre of “elites” masquerading as some sort of “clergy” with massive decadent wealth and as much twisted perverted sex as they want, including homosexual and heterosexual pedohilia, ephebophilia, concubinage, incest, bestiality and necrophilia. There is nothing new under the sun. They want power, they want money and they want sex. The “religious” aspects are a stone-cold con, which Bin Laden himself declared in no uncertain terms.

2.  They can’t be reasoned with.  They can’t be dialogued with.  There is no such thing as “radical islam”.  There is islam, which is even more bloodthirsty, conscienceless and perverse than what we are seeing today.  We cannot possibly imagine what they would do if given true carte-blanche.  Islam today is like an eleven year old boy – just BARELY on the cusp of puberty, just BEGINNING to test the waters.  These beheadings, rapes, suicide attacks and terror operations are BUSH LEAGUE.  Just as it is nonsensical and depraved to refer to Nazis as “radical Nazis” and “moderate Nazis” – as if ANY Nazism could ever be considered acceptable, so it is with islam.  This is why Egyptian president Sisi’s recent speech calling for a “reformation” of islam is nonsense.  All Sisi’s speech did was confirm that Sisi himself doesn’t actually believe any of it, and instead of doing the morally correct thing and renouncing islam, Sisi wants to have his pancakes and eat them too.  He wants everyone – like him – to subscribe to and associate themselves with something that they don’t actually believe in or take seriously.  (How very Pope Francis of him.)  Well, you can pour maple syrup on a puddle of bloody, diarrhetic hogshit all you want, but it will never, ever be pancakes.

3.  Just to be sure that the info is out there as much as possible, here is the “offensive” mohammed cartoon, followed by a link to a cartoon published a while back by the same magazine depicting the Holy Trinity – in retaliation for the Church reiterating that sodomite “marriage” was an ontological impossibility, and that the farce of “gay marriage” was a grave evil.  I can’t post the cartoon of the Trinity because I just can’t.  But I will describe it, and then you can decide whether you want to look at it or not.  God the Father is on the left, depicted as a grey, bearded man, glassy-eyed, mouth open, tongue hanging out like a dog, bending over at the waist being sodomized by God the Son, also glassy-eyed, wearing the crown of thorns, holes visible in His hands and feet, who is in turn being sodomized by the Holy Spirit, depicted as the triangle with the all-seeing eye in the center.  Here it is.

The picture of mohammed below says, “100 lashes if you don’t die laughing!”

That’s it.  That’s all.


So people like islam-appeaser Bill Donohue who argue that islam was “provoked” would only have a rhetorical leg to stand – and a feeble one at that – only if any other Christian anywhere had responded to the Charlie Hebdo cartoon of the Trinity in any way other than praying for the conversion and salvation of the Charlie Hebdo staff and readership.  If you pray the rosary, you do just that many times per day.

“O My Jesus, forgive us our sins.  Save us from the fires of hell, and lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of Thy Mercy.”

4.  I see that there have been many protest marches and gatherings in France wherein people are holding up signs saying, “Je suis Charlie.”  “I am Charlie.”  Um, I’m not Charlie.  These people were not the pillars of society or role models, as evidenced by their pro-sodomite blasphemy linked above.  Satan frequently uses these multi-vectored attacks because one has to be able to process multiple datasets simultaneously AND identify and maintain the connections (and disconnections) between them.  And, as we have discussed before, modern western man has been so dumbed-down and contra-educated that holding ONE premise and following a single-track logical progression is nearly impossible for most people today.  In this case, we have to juggle multiple subjects and then tease out the truth and the morally upright position and reaction.  Let’s see if we can do it.

A.) These people did not deserve to be murdered.  Obviously.
B.) They are not martyr saints.
C.) Freedom of speech is not a “god” unto itself.  Only God is God, and His rights trump ours.  Americans, in particular, have a tendency to worship the Constitution and the American governmental paradigm, particularly with regard to the “rights of man” over and above God.  Careful with that.  It’s a very slippery slope.
D.) The issue here is islam, and the fault, blame and culpability for these murders lies squarely in the lap of islam and nowhere else.  No excuses can be made, no justification can be fabricated, no quarter can be given.  Islam cares not a whit about our arguments amongst ourselves regarding freedom of speech or anything else.  All islam cares about is complete earthly submission to islam, and it will happily let us argue amongst ourselves while it slaughters us where we sit.

5.  I’d like to mention briefly the fact that a woman let the gunmen into the building, knowing exactly who and what they were and what they were going to do.  Apparently she was scared, and the gunmen told her they were not going to kill her – and they didn’t.

I think that level of cowardice she displayed in that situation is criminal and should be prosecutable as involuntary manslaughter.  Here are the criteria for Involuntary Manslaughter:

a.  Someone was killed as a result of act by the defendant.  Check.
b.  The act either was inherently dangerous to others or done with reckless disregard for human life.  Check.
c.  The defendant knew or should have known his or her conduct was a threat to the lives of others.  Check.

But then, are we surprised that a person associated with this magazine was lacking in the moral virtue of courage?  Again, be very careful about enthusiastically attaching yourself to these magazine people as heroes or role models.  See the big picture without being pulled down into the weeds.  

The One and Only Way to Deal with musloids. I Did It. The French Magazine Did Not.

My sympathies to the families of the dead today in Paris, and my prayers for the souls of the murdered.

The only way to deal with musloids is to run at them as hard and as fast as you can – and mean it.  No bluffing.  No games.

What I did (reading and then burning, page by sickening page, the koran manifesto  bookmarked with raw bacon) was far, far more provocative than the French magazine’s cartoon of mohamed.  Why was there ZERO musloid backlash against me?  What did I do that the French magazine did not do?  This:

Ann Barnhardt: Wildcat Charwoman

Thanks be to God, and to all of you for your prayers, it’s official.  I will be cleaning all the things.  Including the stanky public toilets.  (Which ain’t gonna be stanky no mo’.  Trust.)  For cash.  Under the table.  Blacker’n the inside of a cow.  Wildcattin’.  Stickin’ it to Whitey.  At a truly third-world wage.  We’re talking Haitian banana-pickin’ wages up in here.  It’s so poetically fantastic.

My wage will cover 60% of my rent on my “parking space for the van”.  A big help, and a much-needed steady, fixed schedule which will involve a 5:30am daily wake-up call.  Huzzah!  And all kinds of prime thinking time (whilst manfully respiring all manner of industrial cleaning chemicals) so I can come home and explain selected Mysteries of the Church of Rome, monetary theory, and the various social and political pathologies of the day.  As Charwenches do.  Heh.



Let them bring on all their problems!
I’ll do better than my best.
I have confidence they’ll put me to the test,
But I’ll make them see I have confidence in me.

Somehow I will impress them.  (Look out.)
I will be firm, but kind.  (But mostly firm.)
And all those children, Heaven bless them!
They will look up to me
And. Mind. Me.

With each step I am more certain
Everything will turn out fine.
I have confidence the world can all be mine.
They’ll have to agree I have confidence in me!

I have confidence in sunshine.
I have confidence in rain.
I have confidence that spring will come again.
Besides which you see I have confidence in me!

STRRRRENGTH doesn’t lie in numbers,
STRRRRENGTH doesn’t lie in wealth. (preach it, gurl)
Strength lies in nights of peaceful slumbers.
When you wake up —


All I trust I leave my heart to.
All I trust becomes my own.
I have confidence in confidence alone…
(Oh help!)

I have confidence in confidence alone.
Besides which you see I have confidence in me!



More Crap Cutting

1.  First, I need to make a correction/clarification with regards to the Kirchensteuer tax rate.  It is not 9% of AGI, it is 9% of the total income tax due.  This is explained in the Wiki article, but I’ll restate it because my text was definitely imprecise.  If a German has a taxable income of 250,000 Euros his tax bracket is 45%, his tax is thus 112,500 Euros.  Then, take 112,500 x 0.09 and the Kirchensteuer tax is an additional 10,125 Euros.  It is 9% of the tax, not 9% of the AGI.  Thanks to one and all who called out my imprecision.

2.  Let’s speak bluntly about abortion vis-a-vis the black community.  The average American black, immersed in, sympathetic to and morally crippled by the rap/hip-hop culture, isn’t going to be moved or persuaded by the fact that Planned Parenthood was founded by the eugenicist Margaret Sanger specifically for the purpose of exterminating first and foremost blacks, and let it also be said, low-IQ whites.  But Sanger’s main target for genocide was blacks – no question.

Here’s the crap-cutting:  Today’s black culture is so degenerated that even when confronted with objective evidence of their own genocide, they will COOPERATE with it because the ability to have mindless, loveless, promiscuous quasi-animal sex without “being punished with a baby” trumps absolutely everything.  Blacks in the west today WANT to kill the children they conceive every bit as much as their champagne-communist masters, and will happily crawl into bed with people who are explicitly and openly desirous of genociding the entire black race – SO LONG AS THEY CAN KEEP SCREWING MINDLESSLY.

You know I’m right.  You know that Dr. Alvedea King is preaching to a cinderblock wall.  And before you declare me a racist, remember that the entire point I’m trying to make is that there should be far, far, far MORE black people alive today than there are.  The SMALLNESS of the black population in the west is a problem, and we wouldn’t be in this mess if our society was still Christian and people – ALL PEOPLE – were getting married and being blessed by God with big families.

3.  Pope Francis has used the trope of the “Sensus Fidelium” in a very, very misleading way.  The Church teaches that “the supernatural appreciation of faith on the part of the whole people, when, from the bishops to the last of the faithful, they manifest a universal consent in matters of faith and morals.”

Pope Francis and the others are twisting this to mean mere populism, or an appeal to “democracy” within the Church.  Let’s cut the crap.  The “Sense of the Faithful” means just that – the FAITHFUL.  The vast majority of Catholics today – even “practicing” Catholics, meaning those who go to Novus Ordo parishes, DO NOT believe and/or even know what the Church teaches, and thus do not contribute to the Sensus Fidelium.  

I get email after email after email from Catholics who say that they had absolutely no clue what Catholicism, the Mass or the Eucharist was or meant until they stumbled upon this website – even though they had been going to Mass and were educated in so-called Catholic schools.  This is not bragging – this is a SCATHING indictment of the post-Vatican II Novus Ordo paradigm and proof of how utterly far-gone the situation is.  I am also shocked by how many emails I get, both hostile and friendly, from people who have no understanding of the Trinity or the Divinity of Christ.  I can’t tell you how often I get things from both Catholics and Protestants that say, “I love and worship God, and I pray to Jesus, too.”  The clear implication is that the person does not believe or understand that Jesus IS God.  And I’ll never forget the email from the angry Novus Ordo Kathy who told me how stupid I was because if I were REALLY Catholic I would know that “Jesus isn’t God – Jesus is God’s son.”  

Ah, the New Pentecost (TM).  Not *quite* as awesome as the original.

So, if a person does not believe what the Church teaches in toto – everything the Church teaches – if a person does not believe in the Trinity, or doesn’t believe or understand that Jesus Christ is God Incarnate, or does not know or believe in the Real Physical Substantial Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, OR does not believe that contraception is a grave mortal sin, is this person really one of the “Faithful” who contributes to the Sensus Fidelium?  Of course not.  How can a person who does not believe in the most utterly foundational premises, such as the fact that the Godhead is Triune, or that Christ is Divine, or the Ten Commandments, possibly possess the Sensus Fidelium with regards to contraception??

But Pope Francis and the others are appealing precisely to the “Sensus” of the very people who DO NOT believe in what the Church teaches and thus have no place at the proverbial table, either as an informed dissent OR due to ignorance, as proof that ratification of divorce and remarriage, contraception, sodomy, and Marxism MUST be “true”, and the infallible, unchanging teaching of the Church MUST be “false”, or at least “changeable”.  Further, Pope Francis holds those very people who are genuine, faithful Catholics who DO believe EVERYTHING the Church teaches and thus DO contribute to the Sensus Fidelium, in contempt and is aggressively trying to intimidate into silence, marginalize, and even suppress them and drive them out of the Church.  (Good luck with that, Jorge.)  The Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate AND the FFI nuns are under withering attack and have been for over a year, while neo-pagan “nuns” in the US literally escort women into human abattoirs to slaughter their children with ZERO consequences, and Cardinal Burke was demoted in his prime at age 66 to a position as the patron of a charitable organization.  Cardinal Burke’s position has NOTHING to do with the nation of Malta.  He is the patron of the Knights of Malta – a CHARITABLE ORDER.  I don’t think people understand that distinction.

What Francis and his accomplices are doing is pure, earthly populism and humanism – the worship of man – and nothing more.

“Modern secular man is the perfect man and the everlasting man.”
-Annibale Bugnini, architect of the Novus Ordo

I Officially Declare ARSH 2015 the Year of Cutting the Crap.

1.  Pope Francis is wildly popular and people think he is great because he is morally permissive and ratifies and confirms people in their mortal sins.  Elton John (real name Reginald Dwight), a notorious and flagrant sodomite, declared that Francis should be made a saint immediately, not even waiting until Francis is dead, because Francis has confirmed Reginald Dwight in his wretched sin.  Francis has done this to countless millions of souls.  Moral laxity and permissiveness is the currency he uses to buy earthly popularity.  When Dwight repents of his entire life of sodomy and moral depravity, and points to Francis as the reason why he has done so, then Francis will have led Dwight to Christ.  As it stands now, Francis has put his foot in Dwight’s, and countless millions of people’s backs and pushed them deeper into the maw of satan.

2.  Do you know what the Kirchensteuer is?  It is the church tax in Germany, and is the reason why the heretical German bishops have massive power, even though the Church in Germany is, for all intents and purposes, dead.  The Kirchensteuer is a NINE PERCENT tax on income that is levied automatically.  If a person who is Catholic opts out of the Kirchensteuer, say, for example, because the German bishops invest in pornography publishers, that Catholic can and usually is denied the sacraments – marriage and burials for certain, and sometimes other sacraments as well.  In fact, until quite recently, opting out of the NINE PERCENT Kirchensteuer was considered an act of APOSTASY by the German bishops, which is perhaps the quintessence of pots calling kettles black.  THIS, my little chickadees, is called “simony”, the selling of sacraments.  This is why the German Church should be put under interdict, and Roman Catholic missionaries sent to re-evangelize the Barbarians.

Instead, Pope Francis grovels and kowtows to these wicked, wicked men, like Cardinal Kasper, who is a proven artless liar and scumbag.  You know why?  Because the Kirchensteuer brings in over TEN BILLION EUROS per year.  And since the Church in Germany is basically dead, the German bishops live like Sultans AND distribute GOBS of money to … wait for it … LATIN AMERICA.  Yup.  Bergoglio suckled off of German largesse down there while implementing the “destroy from within” plan himself.

The reason that these filthy German prelates want so urgently to abrogate the 6th Commandment and destroy the sacrament of marriage is so they can keep Germans, who have all lost their faith anyway precisely because of the heretic bishops and priests and their open war against God and His Holy Church for 50 solid years now, from opting out of the Kirchensteuer by appeasing them by RATIFYING THEIR SINFUL NEO-PAGAN LIFESTYLES.  The German prelates figure that if they make a big deal of the fact that they will give the “Cracker” and the “Wine” (which remember, is the physical substance of Our Blessed Lord) to these people at the “Ecumenical Table Gathering” – because that is all the Eucharist and the Mass is to these people, so why not give them their “meaningless symbolic cracker” and make them happy – then the cash flows will be maintained.

And don’t kid yourselves.  Timmy Dolan in New York and Cupich in Chicago, among many, many others in the former US are on exactly the same wavelength, and covet the revenues and worldly personal popularity that would come from appeasing unrepentant neo-pagans, both in the form of private donation AND by government transfer payments.  These bishops and priests have not, do not and will not hesitate for a moment to toss Our Blessed Lord’s Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity to any obstinate sinner who demands it, because, let’s face it, most of them don’t actually believe any of it either.  Oh – but they know EXACTLY what the weekly rake is.

3.  So, the day after Bergoglio was elected and I passed along that he was a Peronist Fascist, which is, of course, a subset of Marxism, with a seething hatred of the Traditional Mass, and that he was going to be a disaster, and the hate mail rolled in.  Lil tip, folks.  When you have a MOUNTAIN of objective data, it is not only permissible to draw very simple, top-level conclusions from that mountain of objective data, it is morally incumbent upon you to do so.  This business of denying reality and painting it as some sort of perverse virtue is just another manifestation of the complete feminization of the culture.

4.  Pope Francis Bergoglio is pushing the global warming con because it is a pure mechanism for unlimited government wealth redistribution, and also because Bergoglio is dimwitted and, I have been told, scandalously unread.  He is babbling global warming talking points that were popular ten years ago and have been utterly, completely debunked and objectively disproved for five years, because he isn’t even sharp enough to keep up with the latest line of Marxist carnival barker crap.

5.  The reason why I so boldly state that these people, including the current Pope, seem to not actually believe any of it, is their anecdotal history of turning away people who wanted to convert and enter The Church (Bergoglio did this in Buenos Aires), and Francis’ repeated sneering diatribes against “proselytism” and repeated assurances to those outside the Church that he has no desire to convert them.

Okay.  THIS is what I’m talking about.  Right here.

For those of you who have been around here for a while, what have you learned about The Church?  Well, two things, for certain.  You have learned that the Eucharist, the bread and the wine after the consecration by the priest at the Mass, becomes the PHYSICAL SUBSTANCE OF GOD ALMIGHTY.  God, physically present, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.  NOT SYMBOLICALLY, BUT ACTUALLY.  The bread stops being bread – there is no bread anymore – there is the PHYSICAL SUBSTANCE OF GOD under the appearance (accidents) of bread.  Same with the wine.  That isn’t wine.  That is God under the accidents (smell, taste, viscosity) of wine.  Right there.  And we can eat Him.  And then God is physically, substantially inside of our bodies.  Because He loves us, and that is what He wants, and so that is how He set it up.  Because LOVE.

You have also learned that the Mass is not a show or a community meal, but is the literal bending of time such that the event of Calvary is made present to us every day.  Why?  Because Our Lord loves us and wants us to be there with Him while He dies for us.  He is CONSOLED by our presence at Calvary.  This ONLY happens at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.  This does not happen anywhere or at any time outside of the Church.  This does not happen at any Pentecostal gathering, or at Superfun Rockband church, or at the Methodist Sunday service.  It does not happen at any synagogue.  This does not happen when an atheist or agnostic or Christian-in-name-only goes for a hike or ponders a sunset.  And it certainly does not happen at a gathering of the members of that satanic political cult called “islam”.  It doesn’t even happen when you go out and give free shit to poor people, either.  It happens ONLY at the Holy and August Sacrifice of the Mass.

Now here is the excruciatingly simple question:  If you know these things, and you understand them, and you BELIEVE them, please, please, please explain to me how you could NOT want to convert every single human being on the planet to the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church?  How could you NOT want to tell other people about Our Lord, The Mass, The Eucharist, the Sacrament of Confession, and Our Lord’s Holy Church?  Further, how could you TURN AWAY a person wanting to convert?  How could you encourage someone to remain AWAY from the Eucharist, AWAY from the Mass and OUTSIDE of the Church?  HOW???  How could it possibly be that Our Lord DOES NOT want one of His children to be with Him at Mass, and receive Him in the Eucharist?  How could you call proselytism, that is, helping others to enter, know, love and receive Our Lord in His Church which is His gift to us, “solemn nonsense”, and sneer contemptuously and those who take The Great Commission seriously?  How?

There is one answer, and deep down we all know what it is.  We can see it – terrifyingly – in the Pope, we can see it in our lukewarm-at-best priests and bishops, and we can see it in ourselves.  We don’t tell everyone we can about these things that are so unfathomably and SUPERnaturally wonderful because we don’t really believe any of it – and, like Judas Iscariot, some are so completely embarrassed by it that they want to tear it all down, from the inside for some, from the outside for others.

I do believe, Lord: help my unbelief.

6.  Ending on a happy note:

Hi Ann,

It’s your friendly neighborhood ex-IRS revenue officer who emailed you awhile back. I read your New Year’s update from this evening, and while I’m very happy you have a job lead…

[…. advice, advice, advice, redacted ….]

On another note, I wanted to say I went to confession for the 1st time in more than 15 years a few weeks ago. My mortal sins have tormented me for a long time, and it was an unbelievable relief to lay them down. I have always thought of myself as a decent person at heart, but when I sat down and prepared my examination of conscience, I was shocked at what a bastard I have been. Thank you for the benefactor Masses, though the couple of measly donations I have sent hardly qualify me for that moniker. God bless you for the work you are doing.

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.

A perennial favorite.  BNL with Sarah McLachlan performing a medley of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “We Three Kings”.  A masterful arrangement.

Glorious now, behold Him arise,
King and God and Sacrifice.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Worship Him, God Most High!
