I Didn’t Appreciate This Until the Very End

When I first watched this California fire evac video, I didn’t fully appreciate it.

Folks, this video is taken IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY.  I thought it was taken at night.

I dare say I will never be quite as put-out by backed-up traffic after watching this.  Try driving as patiently and calmly in slow-moving traffic under these circumstances as this man does with such precious cargo.  Major props to all of these people for keeping it together.  It is inspiring.

Edward Pentin Reports: Respected Vatican Theologian Questions “Juridical Validity” of Pope Benedict’s Attempted Partial Resignation, Calls for In-depth Study and Investigation

Edward Pentin reports on this bombshell which was dropped in the Italian press in the middle of the October Kabuki Synod Theater and thus was overloooked.

Note that Pentin had to release this on his private blog, not through his employer, which is a property of EWTN.

Here is the money quote:

“More useful” than a fraternal correction, [Msgr. Bux] said, would be to examine the “juridical validity” of Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation and “whether it is full or partial.” Jesus, [Bux] said, did not give the keys of heaven to Peter and Andrew but “said it only to Peter.” Such an “in-depth study” of the resignation, [Bux] said, could help to “overcome problems that today seem insurmountable to us.”

Msgr. Bux hits the nail on the head, and I have been repeating this ad nauseum for over two years now: This situation is actually very, very easy to fix.  We don’t need to put Antipope Bergoglio on trial for heresy, nor do we need a day-by-day, event-by-event sifting of the past five and a half years to fix this.  All that need be done is acknowledge publicly that Pope Benedict’s attempt to bifurcate the papacy and transform the Petrine See into a “collegial, synodal” office by only partially abdicating the administrative aspect of the Papacy was INVALID per Canon 188, and thus Pope Benedict XVI never ceased to hold the See of Peter.  When a juridical action is invalid, the situation reverts to the status quo by definition.  The one and only living Pope since April of ARSH 2005, whether he likes it, you like it or anyone likes it or not is Joseph Ratzinger.  Thus the “conclave” of ARSH 2013 was invalid COMPLETELY IRRESPECTIVE OF WHOM IT “ELECTED”, WHETHER OR NOT THERE WAS ANY “ELECTIONEERING” OR THE “ELECTED” MAN’S ORTHODOXY.  Bergoglio never has been the Pope – not for one second.  Not even close.  He has NEVER for one second held the authority of Peter, and thus EVERYTHING he has said and done as Antipope is completely, totally null and void.  The Venn diagram of “Papacy” and “Jorge Bergoglio” has ZERO OVERLAP.

This is why Msgr. Bux says, quite rightly, that the issue of the failed attempted resignation is “more useful” than a “fraternal correction” – and note the term there, folks – FRATERNAL, not FILIAL.  Fraternal means “brother”, which in this context communicates an equality of state.  Filial means “son”, which does not apply to Bergoglio because Bergoglio is NOT and NEVER HAS BEEN “The Holy Father”.  In saying “fraternal” and not “filial” in this context, Msgr. Bux makes his position clear with regards to Bergoglio’s rank.

The key to everything, and the solution lies in Pope Benedict’s failed attempted partial abdication.  Acknowledge that REALITY, and absolutely everything subsequent to that is immediately nullified.  There is no need to study and “correct” the “Bergoglian Magisterium” because there IS NO BERGOGLIAN MAGISTERIUM.  This is what Msgr. Bux is communicating when he says, “overcome problems that today seem insurmountable to us.”  This is classic understatement.


Pray for the Pope, Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger, whether he likes it or not.

Sodomite Antipope Bergoglio Forbids U.S. Bishops From Making Even the APPEARANCE of Acting Against the Sodomitical Assault of Young Men and Lads

As I have desperately tried to explain, Diabolical Narcissist psychopaths get their greatest rush of satisfaction and sense of power from committing heinous crimes openly, and then watching the world let them get away with it.

Antipope Bergoglio, no longer getting a sufficient rush from trying to rape and murder The Bride of Christ with ZERO real pushback, is now moving on to demanding that the bishops become open cooperators by silence in the sodomitical assault and rape of young men and lads.  And they will go along with this in silence, and Antipope Bergoglio’s faggot insiders, namely the odious faggot Blase Cupich, are actively praising him for it.  You can’t make this stuff up, folks.

“An enemy has done this.”

-Fr. Linus Clovis

An enemy has done this.

The Gospel from yesterday:

At that time, Jesus spoke this parable to the crowds: The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men were asleep, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. And when the blade sprang up and brought forth fruit, then the weeds appeared as well. And the servants of the householder came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have weeds?’ He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ And the servants said to him, ‘Will you have us go and gather them up?’ ‘No,’ he said, ‘lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them. Let both grow together until the harvest; and at harvest time I will say to the reapers: Gather up the weeds first, and bind them in bundles to burn; but gather the wheat into my barns.’
Matthew 13: 24-30


VanderLeun, having lost everything, nails it

At the end of things we can, I think, come yet again to know  — as we know and forget and know and again forget so many times — that Paradise is not a place that lasts forever here on Earth, but something that exists in the hearts of good people that hold their holy light within and, when that light is called forth, let it shine through.

-Gerard VanderLeun, here, 10 Nov ARSH 2018

Paradise, California is the name of the town he was living in.

When I had my “lose almost everything” event, I literally didn’t even have underwear. I was wearing pajamas with men’s boxer briefs. And bright pink exercise sneakers.

(My natural disaster was not fire, so I was eventually able to salvage clothes and some other stuff, and a brave friend retrieved my FRN stack. But, much had to be given away or lost due to logistics.)

Life is much, much easier if you come to the adult realization that home is WHERE YOU MAKE IT, and that childish fantasies of finding some Narnian paradise-on-earth is a sign of a deeply immature, narcissistic soul. This isn’t home here on earth, as St. Augustine so clearly articulated, but we can, and we are called to project the joy of the supernatural hope we bear into this world. What we should project is the joy at the very hope that we will, someday, see our beloved Christ in the Beatific Vision. Not that the world will ever conform to our fantasies. Because our greatest fantasies are NOTHING compared to the reality of the Beatific Vision….

But, as it is written: That eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither hath it entered into the heart of man, what things God hath prepared for them that love Him.

1 Corinthians 2:9

Last year I went to a favorite restaurant near my current dwelling down by a river, and upon going to the counter to pay the bill the youngish guy leaned forward and said, “Can I ask you a question?” Now, just a few hours before, a rare thing had happened to me. A man had propositioned me. Ugh. So I was thinking of that and groaned when the guy said to me, somewhat “sotto voce“, “Can I ask you a question?”

But here is what he said: “We see you come here to eat, and we see you walk by many days through the window. You always look SO HAPPY. Why are you SO HAPPY?”

And then you know what I did? I explained it to him. “I get to go to Adoration and Mass in the Old Rite every day. I get to see beauty every day. I live close by, we’re neighbors. And some days, I get to come here and eat yum-yums with you. How could I not be happy?”

Because home and happiness is where you make it in this world. Period. Full stop.

But VanderLeun needs underpants, and a toothbrush, and absolutely everything else, because nothing is as destructive, nor as potentially creative, as fire, so, in your charity….
