Barnhardt Podcast #040: BitCoin Bubbles, Beef Bartering, Bacon, and Booze: Believe It

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode we discuss BitCoin again: the wild fluctuations in its price, the massive (and growing!) carbon footprint of the global computer network that supports it, and a generous helping of side-topic discussions about price discovery, price stability, arbitrage, and liquidity in the cattle and pork belly (BACON!) markets as well. And since it’s a non-Halal show we discussed alcohol a bit as well before wrapping up 2017 and looking ahead to 2018.

Vatican GayTivity: Um, the Flying Baby Angel Heads Have… BEWBS.

It’s kindof an afterthought now, but worth getting on the public record.  The four winged baby angel heads (a very common motif in the Baroque) that surround the Holy Family appear to have big, ample bosoms.

Close-up of the two winged angels at the foot of the Blessed Virgin in the Vatican Nativity Scene. Note the cleavage, and the rouged coloring of the “pushed-up” bosoms.  There are two other winged angels, like this, with the same protruding “bosoms” surrounding the Holy Family.

If you look at the faces of the baby angels, first, they have extremely disturbing facial expressions, and second it seems to me that they are little boy baby angels.  So, yes, it seems that not only is this a winking nod to the transvestites (and the word folks is TRANSVESTITE, not transsexual – there is no such thing as a “transsexual” because no one can change their sex, the entire notion is utterly irrational and detached from reality), and it also definitely enters into the domain of pedophilia and the sexualization of small children.  And yes, I know that some people will look at that and say that the “bosoms” are a double-entendre of sorts for butt cheeks, which at this point, I wouldn’t put past these perverts.


So, once again, this monstrosity needs to be torn down.  A group of Catholic men need to muster – preferably in a group of at least one thousand, notify the Italian police and the Swiss Guards that they will be arriving at St. Peter’s Square in the wee hours of the morning so as not to disrupt traffic, and that they will quietly and quickly dismantle this blasphemous manifestation of the satanic powers now occupying the Vatican, and then all kneel and pray the Rosary in reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and then leave. And tell them that they are all, every one, willing to be arrested.

But, of course, no one will do this, because this would require virility and potency, and a willingness to suffer.  Better to just let the God-hating sex perverts have their blasphemous fun and not be inconvenienced ourselves, right?

The notorious sodomite Jesuit priest, James Martin, is already engaging in TEXTBOOK GASLIGHTING, by accusing people who are calling out this filthy blasphemy of being sex perverts themselves.  Again, if you don’t remember what gaslighting is, it is defined as:

“a form of mental abuse in which information is twisted or spun, selectively omitted to favor the abuser, or false information is presented with the intent of making victims doubt their own memory, perception, and sanity…Sociopaths frequently use gaslighting tactics. Sociopaths consistently transgress social mores, break laws, and exploit others, but typically, are also charming and convincing liars who consistently deny wrongdoing. Thus, some who have been victimized by sociopaths may doubt their perceptions.”

So, in this case, the gaslighting tactic is to erect an obviously homoerotic Nativity scene, and then when people object, haughtily declare them to be “crazy” and “perverts” themselves.  It was all planned out, and they knew exactly what they would do when people objected to it.  Don’t doubt that for a second.  My full essay GASLIGHTING is HERE.

Now, a quick word on the huge scandal that broke today about Antipope Bergoglio’s right-hand man and leader of Bergoglio’s “Gang of Nine” Cardinals, Cardinal Maradiaga, a card-carrying Communist from Honduras, embezzling funds from the local diocese and university to the tune of $41,000 PER MONTH (plus a Christmas bonus of over $60k) for years and years, with over $1 million “missing” from investment accounts in Maradiaga’s name or control in London and Germany, and funneling money to his boyfriend, who apparently masquerades as a priest while never having been ordained, one Erick Cravioto Fajardo. Sure enough, Maradiaga is throwing his sodomite accomplices, including his Auxiliary Bishop, under the bus.

Folks, this is going to get really interesting really fast.  The code of omertá (mafia silence) among the faggots in the Vatican is breaking down, and when faggot omertá breaks down, those black-hearted perverts, incapable of love, friendship, loyalty and anything else good, will turn on each other in the most vicious ways, because after all, if one would engage in the filthy acts that these monsters do, and use, degrade and objectify other human beings in the most unspeakable and nauseating ways for pleasure the way they all do by definition, then why wouldn’t they throw each other under the bus to save their own skins?  Oh yeah. Warm up the popcorn popper.

And, really, someone should dig into Antipope Bergoglio’s very, very, very, very close friend, Gustavo Vera.

#TOLDYA Vatican Nativity Made In Sodomite and Transvestite Shrine – Clear Winking Signal to Sex Perverts

Frank Walker over at Canon212 had a top headline a couple of days ago with a picture of the Blessed Virgin in the Vatican Nativity scene asking a question that several other people had emailed to me – Why does the Blessed Virgin look like a man?  I didn’t think too much about it, chocking it up to a poorly executed sculpture, despite the fact that there is clear homoerotica present in the rest of the Nativity scene.


It turns out that the whole Vatican Nativity scene was commissioned by the Sanctuary of Montevergine, a Benedictine monastery outside of Naples.  English reportage on that HERE.  Thanks to the eagle-eyed reader in Argentina who alerted me to this and provided the deep links below.

The Sanctuary of Montevergine has long been notoriously and blasphemously claimed as a mascot and meeting place for sodomites and transvestites.  Here is an Italian newspaper piece from February of ARSH 2017 describing this.  The headline reads: “Gay Outrage: Our Lady Also Siezed: It Happens In Italy, Where and How”.

A false story was started by sodomites that two sodomite men, after being caught, convicted and condemned to death by exposure for their sickening capital crimes by being tied to a tree, were miraculously saved by the Virgin of Montevergine, whereupon the two sodomites… wait for it… promptly celebrated by sodomizing each other because their “love” had been ratified by the Queen of Heaven, or something.

Blasphemy of the sickest and most demonic sort.  This blasphemy spread, and now the Sanctuary of Montevergine is used by Italian sodomites as a mascot for gay pride marches and drag queen conventions.  The biggest gay pride march at the Shrine of Montevergine, happens, even more blasphemously, on February 2, the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin.

So the Vatican Nativity scene was made at the Shrine of the so-called “Gay Madonna”, and there is an image of the Icon of the Madonna of Montevergine in the Vatican Nativity scene itself – a CLEAR SIGNAL to the sex perverts that the scene is a a bow to them.

So, to all the people who remarked that the figure of the Blessed Virgin in the Vatican Nativity scene looks really, really masculine, almost like a man in drag (look at the enormous hands!), I think you very well may have been vindicated.

Here is an image of the whole scene in which you can see the coopted image of the Madonna of Montevergine, referred to today as the “Gay Madonna”, “Madonna of the Drag Queens”, on the left.

The image of the Madonna of Montevergine, which has been blasphemously coopted by sodomites and is now widely known in Italy as “The Gay Madonna” and “Madonna of the Drag Queens”, is on the left.

Like I said, the wretched faggots in the Vatican, with Antipope Bergoglio as their leader, are laughing their asses of at all of this.  And satan squeals with delight. I think it is now very clear that this blasphemous monstrosity needs to be torn down. And I’m not kidding.

Here are a list of links for further reading and confirmation.


LifeSite News has published a detailed exposé on this that should be spread far and wide.  Here is the money quote, emphases mine:

An official of the Vatican’s Governorate has told LifeSiteNews that the abbey of Montevergine initially proposed the original idea for the ‘Nativity of Mercy.’ The Vatican discussed and developed a more detailed design with the abbey, then submitted final plans to the Secretary of State and Pope Francis (sic) for approval, which was duly granted.

“The presence of the Vatican Nativity Scene for us is a reason to be even happier this year,” Antonello Sannini, president of homosexual activist group Arcigay Naples, told LifeSiteNews on Tuesday. “For the homosexual and transsexual community in Naples, it is an important symbol of inclusion and integration.”

See that, folks?  The Vatican DEVELOPED A MORE DETAILED DESIGN.  Because, apparently, the original design JUST WASN’T FAGGOTY ENOUGH.

Our Lady of Montevergine, Mother most pure, pray for us.

Christ, have mercy on us.

#Toldya Antipope Bergoglio Intentionally Surrounds Himself With Blackmailable Sycophants

As I have previously explained in my piece of 14 February, ARSH 2017, one of the biggest problems and dynamics in the Church, and really throughout our miserable culture in general, is the fact that damn-near everyone is BLACKMAILABLE.

“Don’t Be Dumb. Obedience Has Nothing To Do With It. They’re All Blackmailable.” -Barnhardt

Now, the totally confirming excerpt from “The Dictator Pope” by the pseudonymous Marcantonio Colonna:

The existence of a homosexual lobby in the Vatican, which was revealed by the cardinals’ report of December 2012, is a scandal which Pope Francis (sic) has taken no steps to correct, and which he has indeed accentuated. One of the most notorious cases is that of Monsignor Battista Ricca, who is Prelate of the Istituto delle Opere di Religione. Monsignor Ricca made his career as a member of the papal diplomatic service. After a posting in Bern, he was sent to Uruguay in 1999 and thoughtfully brought with him his boy-friend, a louche captain in the Swiss Army called Patrick Haari. Taking advantage of an interval between the retirement of the nuncio and the arrival of his successor, when Ricca was chargé d’affaires, he settled Haari in the nunciature itself, with a job, a salary and lodging. The new nuncio, arriving in Montevideo in early 2000, tried to get both Ricca and Haari out, but the former was protected by his friendship with Archbishop (later Cardinal) Re, who was at that time Sostituto in the Secretariat of State. The ménage was an open scandal to the clergy and to the nuns who attended the Montevideo nunciature, but nothing could be done, even after Haari was brought home one night by some priests from a house of homosexual encounters where he had been beaten up by some rough trade. Not until Monsignor Ricca himself was caught in a lift with a youth who was known to the police, in August 2001, was the long-suffering nuncio able to get rid of his subordinate. (Haari’s luggage when he left was found to be crammed with condoms and pornography). After a further posting to Trinidad and Tobago, where he quarrelled with his nuncio, Ricca was finally removed from the active diplomatic service in 2005, when he was given a job in Rome with the status of councillor of a first-rank nunciature. His responsibilities included the management of the cardinals’ guest-house in Via della Scrofa where Cardinal Bergoglio was wont to stay, and where he famously went to pay his bill on the morning after his election. Given that Montevideo faces Buenos Aires across the mouth of the River Plate, it seems unlikely that the then Cardinal Archbishop had been unaware of the goings-on in the nunciature over the water, but that did not prevent him from striking up a close friendship with Monsignor Ricca, which stood the latter in good stead when Bergoglio was elected Pope (sic). Within three months of that event, in June 2013, Monsignor Ricca was appointed Prelate of the IOR, the Vatican Bank. The appointment was the subject of a journalist’s question to the Pope a few weeks later, in one of his signature press conferences on board an aeroplane, when he was quizzed about this promotion of a notorious homosexual, and it drew from the Pope the well-known comment, “Who am I to judge?” I

In fact his patronage of Monsignor Ricca fits the pattern which was well established when he was Archbishop of Buenos Aires, whereby he surrounds himself with morally weak people so as to have them under his thumb.   One may say that the average pious Catholic would be scandalised to know that the higher reaches of the Church are occupied by men who violate so blatantly their obligations of chastity as Monsignor Ricca has done, and would find it incredible that they are not only tolerated but protected and promoted. Yet that situation has not only continued unchecked under Pope Francis; it has visibly worsened. In October 2015 we were treated to the spectacle of an official of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith Monsignor Krzysztof Charamsa, who ostentatiously resigned his position, announced that he was an active homosexual, and launched, for the benefit of the Press, a tirade against the Church’s moral teaching. He also “revealed” the existence of a homosexual lobby in the Curia, which was indeed well known but thus received confirmation from the inside. The significant facts about this case were that Monsignor Charamsa had been working for years as a bitter opponent of the Church’s teaching of which he was ostensibly a spokesman, and also that, with all the talk of cleaning up the Curia, no attempt has ever been made to disturb such figures; it took a gesture of defiance on his part to remove him from the office he had so plainly betrayed.   Another prelate who received a less voluntary outing was Monsignor Luigi Capozzi, the secretary of Cardinal Coccopalmerio. In June 2017 he was caught by the Vatican’s Gendarmeria hosting a homosexual drugs party in his luxurious apartment in the Palazzo del Sant’ Uffizio, and it was found that he had been using his car with Vatican number-plates to transport drugs without being stopped by the Italian police57. Cardinal Coccopalmerio, who is equally well known for advocating tolerance of homosexuality and for being perhaps the foremost of Pope Francis’s yes-men, had proposed this trusted assistant for a bishopric.   The wider significance of this infiltration is that the homosexual lobby is working to change the Church’s moral teaching in its own interest, and it has come into its own with the liberalising tendency introduced by Pope Francis. For example, Archbishop Bruno Forte wrote for the Synod on the Family in 2014 the text which attempted to relax Catholic teaching on homosexuality. His text was rejected by the Synod, but not for any lack of effort on Pope Francis’s part to advance the liberalising cause. Perhaps an even more scandalous case is that of Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, who, incredibly, is President of the Pontifical Council for the Family and whom Pope Francis has recently made President of the John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and the Family, the body which John Paul intended as the watchdog of the Church’s teaching.

And remember folks, the blackmailers are almost always blackmailable themselves too, as with Antipope Bergoglio.  This is one of the key dynamics in homosexuality.  Why do young men engage in sodomitical relationships with gross old men?  The young men do it every bit as much out of a desire to hold power over others.  The young men luxuriate in the fact that they COULD blackmail or bring down older, more powerful men.  The older men enjoy the sense of power that comes from engaging in sodomy with young, physically attractive men, and in watching said young men bow and scrape before them – but make no mistake, BOTH SIDES are playing the power-blackmail dynamic off each other.

As with all tyrants and tyrannies, the factor that determines who is the most powerful is pure, naked aggression.  The reason that Antipope Bergoglio wields the power that he does is not that he is some sort of genius – it is exactly the opposite.  It is the fact that he is utterly ruthless and is willing to “pull the trigger” at the drop of a hat on anyone and anything that crosses him.  That’s it.  Power. Power. Power. Power. Power.  He is in the class of tyrants that are DUMB, but hyper-aggressive, and thus maintain their power with an iron fist.  Think Stalin.  Dumber than a bag of wet mice.  45 million killed.  Think Hillary Clinton. Imbecilic, but totally willing to destroy and murder people purely for the sake of her own personal power. Think Kim Jong Duck Dong in North Korea.  Likely sub-100 I.Q., all power retained through murder and starvation.  Think Mao who said it aloud in no uncertain terms, “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.” The examples are seemingly endless.

With Antipope Bergoglio, one is already dealing with a group of hyper-effeminate milksops AT BEST to begin with, and with full-on sex perverts more commonly, precisely because such pathetic and despicable men were actively and specifically recruited and elevated over the past 60+ years.  So, die was cast decades ago.

Please remember the Matthew 17: 20 initiative.  Full fasting two days per week for the intention that Antipope Bergoglio be publicly acknowledged and removed as an Antipope, that the entire Bergoglian antipapacy be nullified, that Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger be publicly acknowledged as the one and only living Pope, that Bergoglio repent, revert to Catholicism, die in a state of grace and someday achieve the Beatific Vision, and that Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger, repent, die in a state of grace, and someday achieve the Beatific Vision.

Our Lady, Undoer of Knots, pray for us.

Christ, have mercy on us.

#TOLDYA Homoerotica in the Vatican Nativity and Something to Offset (a little)

Is it a gift or a curse that I can report on Vatican homoerotica AND some redeeming science thing in the same post?  Ah well. It is what it is.

So yes, I have most definitely seen this year’s Vatican Nativity Scene in St. Peter’s Square, and let me now say what everyone else will only hint at:


The naked dude with the six-pack is eye candy for all the fags, and pure, malicious, sacrilegious, desacratory homoerotica. Guaranteed.

And it is even worse than you think.  Yes, obviously, the naked gay gym rat placed in the scene under the false pretense of “when I was naked you clothed me” is absolutely, positively, 100% a homoerotic image, what many people are missing, I suspect, is the Star of Bethlehem itself.  In Italy, the star with a “swoosh” is a very common motif of Christmas, but the star always has the swoosh to the right axis, showing that the Star led the Magi from the East toward Bethlehem.  It is catechetical.

The traditional Italian Star of Bethlehem, with the swoosh towards the east, indicating movement from east to west, leading the Magi to Bethlehem.

Now, note the star of Bethlehem in the Vatican homoerotic scene.  If you are thinking to yourself, “That looks like male genitalia with an erection”, you need not feel guilty, because that is exactly what it is intended to look like. Because these filthy faggots hate God and His Holy Church, and luxuriate in hurting God, and even more, luxuriate in the fact that “even God is powerless to stop them”.

No. You aren’t crazy. It looks like exactly what you think it looks like. Because that is what it is intended to look like. Because they hate God.

Folks, when I have said in this space so many times over the past 2.5 years that the Vatican is a de facto bath house and that faggot priests, bishops, cardinals, security staff, maintenance staff and Vatican Museum tour guides (!!) are literally using the Vatican and St. Peter’s Basilica itself as a gay sex emporium, I am NOT BEING FACETIOUS.  I am reporting FACTS to you that I have become aware of and had independently confirmed over and over and over again over the past 2.5 years.  The last “intervention” I had about the sacrilegious sodomitical crimes in Rome was less than two weeks ago. One priest in Rome was forced to cancel Sunday Vespers, and became extremely averse to ALL high liturgy in his parish because faggot priests and laymen invaded and started “sending up” the liturgy by competing with each other as to which could sing each verse of the Psalms with an ever-increasing level of “camp”.  And the faggot priests would then sit there and laugh at each other – DURING SUNDAY VESPERS WITH THE BLESSED SACRAMENT REPOSED THERE IN THE TABERNACLE.  The priest was too weak to throw them out, but yet feared that he would be held responsible for their sacrilege.  Sadly, and wrongly, the only option he saw was to cancel everything.  I’m not kidding about this stuff, folks. This is exactly how satan works.  Remember, the serpent is SUBTLE.

The faggots in the Vatican not only did this homoerotic Nativity Scene on purpose, but are LAUGHING THEIR ASSES OFF at all of the “rubes” and “retarded holy rollers” who walk past their attack on Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and His Holy Church, and are right now luxuriating in their “untouchability” – so untouchable they believe themselves to be thanks to their leader, Mrs. Gustavo Vera, that they can literally erect (N.P.I.) homoerotica in St. Peter’s Square and no one will say a damn word.

If I come off as extremely angry and bitter, maybe you can better understand why. And maybe you can understand why I would strenuously advise AGAINST tourism in the Vatican or Rome in general. Right now, I would not step foot inside the Vatican if you paid me.  The demonic presence there is real, and unprecedented in all of Christian history.


Okay – something good to offset the evil.

As you all know, I am a big fan of math, science and all of the incredibly cool stuff in the natural world that points to its Creator, and His Infinite Goodness.

Well, I have been enthralled watching videos on YouTube of colorblind people (almost all men), receiving EnChroma glasses and seeing color for the first time in their lives.  Many of these men are reduced to tears within seconds.  I am really shocked at how many of these people have NEVER seen purple, red or green before – EVER – and are absolutely shocked and confused by what they are seeing.  A shocking number of them say when asked what color a given item is, “I have no idea.  I have never seen that before in my life.”

Can you imagine?  Can you imagine, as an adult, seeing COLORS that are completely new and foreign?  What these folks with their EnChroma glasses are showing us is a foretaste of what the Beatific Vision will be like.  In the Beatific Vision, that is to say, inside God Himself, we will all see things that we never imagined, and these delights and beauties will never, ever end.  Every moment will be like what the colorblind people experience in those first seconds of “purple”, “red” and “green”, except massively amplified, and unending.  Remind me to write up my piece on how God contains in Himself infinite, perfected BACON-NESS….


Finally, let me express my profound and evergreen gratitude to all of my benefactors.  I had someone accuse me of setting up the Requiem Mass for the repose of the souls all of the decedents in the world of the previous week out of “vanity” this week.  Am I a fraud?  Well, I will certainly find out at my Particular Judgment, and everyone else will find out at the General Judgment.  But, in the interim, I will continue to have as many Masses as possible in the Venerable and August Gregorian Rite said for both my benefactors and supporters, and Requiems for all of the people who die, and I will trust that Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, being Perfect Justice Himself, will see to it that I get exactly what I deserve in light of His Mercy.  If I am a fraud, and if I am legalistically presuming upon His Mercy, aping His sacraments, and receiving the Eucharist sacrilegiously, then I have no doubt whatsoever that I will be condemned to hell.   But, at least all of you will have four Masses per week (as of this writing) said for the salvation of your souls, and every person on the planet who dies will have a Requiem Mass offered for them in the Venerable Rite of Pope St. Pius V, our father in God, the week after they die. So, all will not be lost, even if I am.

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.

Barnhardt Podcast #038: Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire!

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode we discuss lies and the lying liars who lie them… err, tell them. Whether it’s DDoS attackers lying to internet service providers that their traffic is legitimate, parents who tell their kids that Santa Claus is a benevolent breaking-and-entering artist, or NBC news in general or Matt Lauer in particular, liars are going to lie and when you tell enough lies then Faith suffers or dies. And don’t neglect the Sacrament of Confession where Truth and our hope in joining the Church Triumphant is restored!

Starting Monday Off Right: Five Long Years, A Lamentation

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.

It is said that there is no greater misery, no greater suffering in this life than false happiness. The consolation in this is that suffering is proof of love.

Five years ago today I arrived in Rome on the pilgrimage that some of you might remember. I could never get my computer to connect to the Wi-Fi in my hotel room, so I was incommunicado for 10 days. I arrived and saw Rome literally a few short weeks before the whole mess of the failed attempt at partially abdicating the Papacy that Pope Benedict unleashed, thus setting in motion the faux-conclave of ARSH 2013, and the Bergoglian antipapacy.

Little did I know that while I was there, I was immersed in a fetid cesspit of sodomites and moral degenerates – both clerical and lay. Little did I know that the Vatican Museums are a hive of sodomite tour guides, some of which even use St. Peter’s Basilica itself as their meetup spot for sodomitical encounters.  Little did I know that, as in the world of ballet which I dealt with in my teen years, the assumption in Rome is that EVERY MAN who is not married MUST be assumed to be a sodomite, and the majority of the time, is.

Little did I know of the omnipresence of the corruption, the near-total lack of faith, the unspeakable sacrilege, and even the concrete reality of the practice of satanism, both in Rome and in the Vatican itself.

One of my prayers these days is that should I live to see the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart, that I can someday return to Rome, purged of evil, purged of sodomites, with every side altar in every church in use, with the Divine Office being chanted daily in every choir, without being made sick to my stomach and frightened – yes, FRIGHTENED – by the people, and the demonic presence there.  Our Lady promised that there will be a restoration, and that after said restoration, everything will be better than it ever was before.  I would be very, very, very interested indeed to see Rome “better than it ever was before”.

All of the scripture, hymns and motifs of the Jews longing to see Jerusalem restored – I know exactly what that means now.  Viscerally.

Jerusalem hath grievously sinned, therefore is she become unstable: all that honored her have despised her, because they have seen her shame: but she sighed and turned backward. Her filthiness is on her feet, and she hath not remembered her end: she is wonderfully cast down, not having a comforter: behold, O Lord, my affliction, because the enemy is lifted up. The enemy hath put out his hand to all her desirable things: for she hath seen the Gentiles enter into her sanctuary, of whom thou gavest commandment that they should not enter into Thy Church.
Lamentations 1: 8-10

“I am the Immaculate Conception”.

I remember even as a young Protestant child, being erroneously told that the church in my hometown called “Immaculate Conception” referred to Our Lord Jesus Christ as the “Immaculate Conception”.


The Immaculate Conception is the Blessed Virgin Mary, conceived without the stain of Original Sin.  To this day, many Novus Ordo Catholics have no idea WHOM the Immaculate Conception is.

And this is a day of Holy Obligation, meaning it is MORTAL SIN to not go to Mass today.  Don’t worry.  I have a whole rant on the failure of the Novus Ordo (especially RCIA) to communicate the importance of the Days of Obligation – first among which is… wait for it… EVERY Sunday.  Since nefarious forces are trying to erase me from the internet, I suppose I should write with all urgency all of the essays I need to write, especially on churchy matters.

One of my most popular essays, and one that still holds the highest “cool factor” for me is the one about The Immaculate Conception and The Assumption.  For me, one of the coolest things is when contemporary science confirms something biblical or churchy.  With archaeology, it seems that it happens all the time.  But my favorite so far, without question, is the discovery that the cells of a child in utero persist in the body of the mother for the rest of her life, and even have healing effects.

So, yes, the cells of children aborted by their mother – and remember abortion is nothing less than the first-degree, premeditated and physically cooperated-in murder of a child by its mother – can be forgiven by just the tiniest drop of Our Blessed Lord’s Most Precious Blood – provided the mother is truly sorry.  Those cells, of those children, persist in the body of the mother, and oftentimes are sprung into action to physically heal the body of the mother, decades after the pregnancy.

I remember well the multiple times that a woman – a “trad Catholic” – came and knelt next to me not ten seconds after going to confession during Sunday Mass, leaned in to me kneeling in the pew and said, “Ha-ha! Off scott-free yet again! Gotta love the sacraments!”  This probably nullified the sacrament in those instances, and I carry the utmost terror in my heart for this woman to this day, because I later found out that she aborted ALL of her children – every child she ever conceived, and there were “several” over the years – that she aborted in her previous, pre-reversion life.  The only thing between her and the eternal hell she so richly deserves for depriving every single one of her children of even the CHANCE of the Beatific Vision through Baptism,  as the body-and-soul murderess she is, is the Sacrament of Penance, which to this day she treats as the punchline to a tasteless, impious joke, the Sacrament of Penance – Confession.

To hold that Sacrament, the very blessed Sacrament that raises the dead (like her) to life as the butt of a sick joke is, frankly, beyond the pale.  Please pray for her, as I do every day, in the Rosary and at Holy Mass.  Our prayers may be her only hope, even though she holds such prayers and pieties in contempt.

But, back to the Immacolata.

If you are interested in reading about the super-cool science of the Immaculate Conception, might I suggest:



my Q&A piece from when I was thrown out of the Novus Ordo Thomistic Ethics class because the Novus Ordo Kathys were pissed off that I defended the Infallible Dogma of the Immaculate Conception to them during class (no, Sweetie, aborted babies DO NOT go to heaven….):


William Adolphe Bouguereau, ARSH 1875, Musee d’Orsee

This is one of my favorite paintings from one of my favorite artists – second only to Guido Reni, William Adolphe Bouguereau.  Many snobs discount all artists of the 19th century, especially French, for coming after the Napoleonic Revolutionary eras, and for being too “realistic”, but I think the realism of the 19th century can be soul-piercing.  Such with this piece.  The Blessed Mother holds in her lap a mother whose dead son reposes below. The Blessed Mother, in black, evokes every Pieta – every image of the Virgin holding the dead Christ – while invoking the mercy and consolation provided by her Divine Son.  Look at the face of the Virgin.  Look at what I like to call the “Ferocious Love” in her countenance, as she appeals to her Father, Son and Spouse – the Triune Godhead.

Men, especially, look upon a woman that, while completely feminine, can be looked upon as an exemplar of virility and potency, and thus as a model of authentic masculinity for men without the slightest tension.  This is the Blessed Virgin.  How can it be that a woman provide any template for masculinity whilst remaining feminine? Look at the Virgin.

And, if you want to see how the Godhead can provide a template for both masculine and feminine charity, do read my piece on how ONLY MEN CAN EVER BE PRIESTS.   This piece has spurred numerous conversions, and has spurred married Lutheran convert and Anglican Ordinariate priests to enter, like the Apostles themselves (except St. John who was a virgin), into continence with their wives after realizing how the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is also a profoundly NUPTIAL event.  It is one of the most important pieces I have ever written, and sometimes I read it and still can’t quite believe that I wrote it. But, I remember the moment at my second Tridentine Mass when it coalesced completely in my mind – horrific sinner that I am.  ELBOWS DOWN….

As this site comes under cyber-attack, I am reminded that one only draws fire when one is over the target. And I am feeling better, and pneumonia (I was genuinely worried) seems to have been avoided, thanks be to God. Now, if we can get the site stabilized and the attacks fully deflected, we can resume recording and posting podcasts.

I hope this helps. Plenty more to say, coming soon.
