Action Item: How to make certain that Our Lord’s parousia (coming down onto the altar and Transubstantiating the Host and Chalice) is NOT pure suffering on His part…

We all want to do what we can to comfort Our Lord. Here’s something everyone can do. In order to absolutely, positively ensure that His Coming in the Eucharist confected in a valid Novus Ordo Mass of whatever stripe ISN’T a total waste and pure suffering on His part…

GO VISIT HIM, reposed in the Tabernacles of your nearby Novus Ordo parishes.

I don’t want to put words in Our Lord’s mouth, but I’m pretty confident about this: if you go to Him and make a visit, His joy at your visit will “make it all worthwhile”. That is how much He loves you.

I am reminded of one of my favorite passages in literature. The words of the Fox (read as Our Lord) to the Little Prince (read as YOU):


My life is very monotonous,” the fox said. “I hunt chickens; men hunt me. All the chickens are just alike, and all the men are just alike. And, in consequence, I am a little bored. But if you tame me, it will be as if the sun came to shine on my life. I shall know the sound of a step that will be different from all the others. Other steps send me hurrying back underneath the ground. Yours will call me, like music, out of my burrow. And then look: you see the grain-fields down yonder? I do not eat bread. Wheat is of no use to me. The wheat fields have nothing to say to me. And that is sad. But you have hair that is the color of gold. Think how wonderful that will be when you have tamed me! The grain, which is also golden, will bring me back the thought of you. And I shall love to listen to the wind in the wheat . . .”

The fox gazed at the little prince, for a long time.

“Please–tame me!” he said.

“I want to, very much,” the little prince replied. “But I have not much time. I have friends to discover, and a great many things to understand.”

“One only understands the things that one tames,” said the fox. “Men have no more time to understand anything. They buy things all ready made at the shops. But there is no shop anywhere where one can buy friendship, and so men have no friends any more. If you want a friend, tame me . . .”

“What must I do, to tame you?” asked the little prince.

“You must be very patient,” replied the fox. “First you will sit down at a little distance from me–like that–in the grass. I shall look at you out of the corner of my eye, and you will say nothing. Words are the source of misunderstandings. But you will sit a little closer to me, every day . . .”

The next day the little prince came back.

“It would have been better to come back at the same hour,” said the fox. “If, for example, you come at four o’clock in the afternoon, then at three o’clock I shall begin to be happy. I shall feel happier and happier as the hour advances. At four o’clock, I shall already be worrying and jumping about. I shall show you how happy I am! But if you come at just any time, I shall never know at what hour my heart is to be ready to greet you . . . One must observe the proper rites . . .”

“What is a rite?” asked the little prince.

“Those also are actions too often neglected,” said the fox. “They are what make one day different from other days, one hour from other hours…”

Mailbag: A Gen X’er Checks In

Dear Ann,

I just read your most recent post about Pope Benedict. It really rang a bell with me.

In the past I was one of those people that was significantly impacted by my parents’ imperfections and failures. As a result, I committed many sins, many mortal sins.  Through the grace of God I have been restored to sanity and pray each day I will one day be with our Lord Jesus Christ in His Kingdom.

Your treatment and disposition towards Pope Benedict gives me much joy. You do not deny that he hurt The Church, yet you continue to love him.   You see his failings and yet you express such charity towards him. Praise be to Jesus. 

You are so right when you express the absolute need for people to get over themselves and their feelings. In my own life, I have been down that road and am at the point, thanks to God that I have realized, through the intercession and assistance of our Mother and the Saints and Holy Angels, that feelings are not meant to be fact, but to be guarded carefully and used only in the light of faith in reason. Feelings have led me down some very dark paths and I am eternally thankful to our Father for saving me from the abyss through His Son, Jesus Christ in Communion with the Holy Spirit.

While you say some things a bit more  stridently than I would, I am thankful for your insight and the call to truth.  It is rare today when one hears words spoken clearly and truthfully. I am thankful to God whenever I hear it.

God bless you,

L

Notice how much they love him. Even when he forgets the Apostolic Blessing – and then humbly begs their forgiveness.

He clearly isn’t an evil man.  Note that he finishes, then leaves the window…twice.  But then he is reminded that HE DIDN’T GIVE THE BLESSING (this was in ARSH 2005 – he was a brand-new Pope).  So, he comes back and in good self-deprecating humor and humility declares that he forgot “the most important thing”.  But note the crowd, how they are calling out cheers of support.  Last I knew of anyone calling anything out at Antipope Bergoglio’s audiences was, “VIGANÒ!”

Folks, run at full sprint away from people whose entire ecclesiology/worldview is based on hating Joseph Ratzinger for being an “evil man”.  Some things come across my transom made by sedevacantists trying to discredit me for acknowledging Pope Ratzinger as the one and only living Pope by saying and photoshopping truly evil and depraved things about Pope Benedict. They only discredit themselves.

The same goes for the “FiP-shutup” contingent.  Folks, believe me: Daddy issues. Abandonment issues. Save it for the confessional, or better yet, just grow the hell up and get over yourself. Oh, you’re Gen-X and had a “sub-optimal” childhood.  Mommy said mean things to you? Daddy took off?  Boo-hoo.  GET IN LINE, SNOWFLAKES.  Do you have a brain, or has it all been fried on Xanax and Prozac?  Here’s a newsflash: your loser baby-boomer parents ARE NOT THE VICAR OF CHRIST ON EARTH, nor are they Jesus Christ.  Don’t map your parents, and more directly to the point, YOUR HORRIFIC LIFE CHOICES (Hyper promiscuous? Dumped by every person you ever fornicated with? Burned YEARS on a completely, totally, glaringly obvious racketeering sex and money cult masquerading as “conservative” Catholic?) onto Pope Benedict, the Papacy, the Holy Catholic Church, and ultimately Our Blessed Lord and Savior, mmkay? Thanks.  Every ounce of that stupidity is ON YOU.

As I said in the Part One Video about the Bergoglian Antipapacy, the FIRST question that should spring to everyone’s mind is, “Holy Father Benedict, WHAT DID THEY DO TO YOU? HOW DID THEY THREATEN YOU?”

Was Ratzinger messed up in the 1960s?  Of course he was.  HE’S GERMAN.

But he IS also the validly elected Roman Pontiff, still reigning. Grace of State and the Petrine Promise are REAL.

I’d rather skip than buy #Gillette

So I went to the pharmacy to buy a good razor – one of those 4 or 5 bladed jobs with the 3-dimensional articulating head. I was ready to drop $20 on one razor (with replaceable heads).  Because between my chest and back hair, y’all KNOW I burn through razors with a quickness.

EVERY razor in the joint was Gillette.

I bought a new shower cap.  And that is all.  I’d rather go another couple of days with a mediocre disposable razor. I’m NOT buying Gillette. Period. Bunch of damn Neo-pagan pervert totalitarians.

I’m holding out for the QUINTIPPIO.

Yeah, the BoyLover Symbol Vestments Should Be Taken Seriously.

I held off on this because it is sometimes the case that geometric or other symbols simply get coincidentally repeated or co-opted, and thus people just end up looking silly for things like:

Freaking out over the Navajo use of the same shape as a decorative symbol in pottery and weaving as came to be used by the Nazis centuries later – what we now call the swastika.

Or,

Freaking out over the obvious and intuitive symbol of the Most Holy Trinity, the triangle, sometimes with the All-seeing Eye within, obviously a representation of the Triune God and His Omniscience… which was maliciously co-opted centuries later by Freemasonry (See the back of every one dollar bill.)

But this pedophile symbol thing has legs. Note that all of the vestments in the photos below are brand new, custom made for the World Youth Day in Panama. We know this because the logo of the Panama World Youth Day is clearly visible on the Cope. This isn’t a case of a 100 year old set of vestments with a geometric pattern that coincidentally matches the symbol of man-boy pedophilia concocted 20 years ago. Furthermore, liturgical blue is not a color of the Roman Rite, although there are some places in the world that have a specific permission to use Blue on Marian Feasts. There were no Marian Feasts during World Youth Day. So, the use of blue was completely outside any liturgical norms, AND the BoyLover logo, which the WYD vestments match in shape, is also specifically the color blue – as in blue for little boys.

I think we are clearly to the point where the satanist infiltrators are openly manifesting and rubbing the world’s face in their crimes. Remember, for Diabolical Narcissists the biggest rush comes from the “getting away with it”. Also, satanists are required as a condition of advancement to publicly manifest their satanism.

It is NOT unreasonable or tin-foil hatty to look at these vestments as a likely public wink and nod to pedophilia and satanism, especially knowing what we now know about Antipope Bergoglio, his Argentinian connections to child sex trafficking (Gustavo Vera in particular), Bergoglio’s interwoven-ness with the Sankt Gallen Mafia and Sodo-clerical Mafia in General, and Antipope Bergoglio’s aggressive promotion and protection of not just sodomites, but sodomites openly accused of acts of criminal assault against men, lads and children.

Mailbag: Humility & Gratitude for the TLM

(An excellent letter with many fantastic points. Emphases mine. -AB)

Dear SuperNerd and Ann,

Thank you for this conversation.

I have experience with both sides of this and wanted to offer a few points.

I am a convert with a bunch of kids. In our extended family we have a priest, also a convert, who is one of those who was personally accepted by Benedict XVI to be a convert Priest. However, he is a NO priest and our household, on principle, does not attend the NO Mass ever. So I am in the very awkward situation of taking my kids to visit their extended family every summer for several weeks, but then every Sunday driving *away* from our relative’s church and our extended family to go to Mass somewhere else. Although very painful for me at first, this has provided the opportunity for fantastic conversations with my kids, who naturally really wanted to go see their relative’s Mass. Over the years we had weekly conversations about why we do what we do as a family. So my first point is

1. Have these conversations with kids BEFORE it is an emergency situation and you have to figure out what to do next Sunday.

2. Cultivate charity in the discussions for those who do attend the New Mass. This was obviously key in my situation.  Little kids cannot be looking down on their relatives from some perceived spiritual superiority, so I had to get good at explaining the fact that yes,  the Latin Mass is superior, but that does not in any way make US superior–it just makes us fortunate by the Providence of God to have found Tradition. It can’t be done in one conversation– there is a lot of circling back over topics over the years, but they can really get it over time. And now my kids love to pray for people who haven’t yet found Tradition.

3. The most important thing is to foster in them humility and GRATITUDE for what they have been given. We are not going to our priest relative’s Mass because we are so incredibly grateful to have found Tradition, and we may not always have it available, so we are going to cling to it while we can. In fact, even when we are home at our own parish, while we drive to Mass each Sunday, I say out loud prayers of thanksgiving for our parish, for our priests, and that we can go to Mass in safety for the time being. This makes a big impression on the kids.

Lastly– to SuperNerd’s former question to his priest along the lines of  “should I be going to a NO Mass more often just so that I can get used to it and not feel so sick when I see it”…    the reasons that the answer is a screaming “NO!” is because of the *reason* you gave for going. We should never want to get used to a NO Mass. We should never want to feel more at ease with it, or less sick at seeing it. But there’s a point there– some people might need to feel that sickness in order to really understand the treasure that the Latin Mass is. In our own traditional school, [SSPX]  the teachers often remark that it is the students who have never seen a NO Mass who do not appreciate Tradition, and who take the Mass for granted. On the other hand, those students who have extended families in NO parishes, where they have to sometimes attend First Communions of cousins, or funerals of grandparents– those are the kids who often really get it. They understand why what they have is worth fighting for. 

Bottom line: if and when we were to go to a NO Mass, we should be clear that we are going there in order to SUFFER (ourselves) with Christ. By deigning to be present at a NO Mass, Christ is letting Himself be humiliated and disgraced all over again. And if He is willing to be there, who am I to say I can’t be there? (Of course, only if I absolutely have to be.) And if, in seeing Him in that environment makes me feel sick, that’s a GOOD thing.

Thanks again

God bless,

Bergoglio Ain’t the Pope Proofset Number Eleventy Blazillion: Prayer Intentions of the Roman Pontiff

I was perusing Fr. Z’s post on the August 2nd Portiuncula Indulgence, which requires praying for the Pope’s intentions. I pray for Pope Benedict’s intentions with no problem.

Sadly, almost everyone today is under the mistaken impression or browbeaten/terrified into publicly confessing that Jorge “Francis” Bergoglio is the Pope (which he isn’t, and never has been, and never will be), and are thus VERY worried about praying for the evil, psychopathic, sex-pervert godfather and arch-heresiarch’s intentions, because all of Bergoglio’s intentions are glaringly evil.

Fr. Z helpfully posted what are taught as the five categories of the Holy Father’s intentions. Every point here is not merely inferred as being totally contrary to Antipope Bergoglio’s agenda, but Antipope Bergoglio has explicitly stated that his intentions are diametrically opposed to everything on this list.

“Prümmer says that the intentions of the Holy Father for which we are to pray have a tradition of five basic categories which were fixed:

1. Exaltatio S. Matris Ecclesiae (Triumph/elevation/stability/growth of Holy Mother Church)

2. Extirpatio haeresum (Extirpation/rooting out of heresies),

3. Propagatio fidei (Propagation/expansion/spreading of the Faith)

4. Conversio peccatorum (Conversion of sinners),

5. Pax inter principes christianos (Peace between christian rulers).”

Antipope Bergoglio openly professes a hatred of Triumph of the Church, a desire to destabilize the Church, and a hatred of proselytism, going so far as to call it “sinful”, and declared that God wills the existence of false religions as He wills the different races and the two sexes.

Antipope Bergoglio is an arch-heresiarch who promotes heretics and ruthlessly purges and suppresses orthodox Catholics.

Antipope Bergoglio not only has declared proselytism a sin, but wants the Church to learn from, adopt and teach paganism, islam, communism and Freemasonry.

Antipope Bergoglio has taught and declared “Magisterial” that God wants people to sin, continue sinning, and “likes people better” when they sin.

Antipope Bergoglio meddles and engages in shit-stirring among political leaders in the (formerly) Christian world, and grovels to violently anti-Christian regimes.

One-two-three-four-five. What EXACTLY is it going to take?

While Trad, Inc. (Last publicly available form 990 filing [ARSH 2017] showing $170k single household payout [husband $130k, wife $40k] on $203k in gross revenues, with only $23k in expenses, $12k of which appears to be rent paid to the same household? Seriously? 89.6% single household payout on gross revenues??) increases and escalates its war on the Papacy itself, now having declared war on Vatican 1, an infallible ecumenical council, because it declared the dogma of Papal Infallibility, which shoots down Trad Inc.’s apparently incredibly lucrative “Francis is Pope shut up stupid, I’m right to be tempted to apostasy, and everyone else should join me in losing my faith, and give me money for doing it, too! FiP 4-Eva!!” paradigm.

Meanwhile, the ONLY topic that is completely off-limits is NOT the rejection of the Papacy, infallible dogma, or even the swan dive into apostasy behind closed doors. No, the ONLY topic that is verboten is whether there just MIGHT have been something perhaps ever-so-slightly non-kosher about Pope Benedict’s attempted partial and possibly coerced “resignation” in February ARSH 2013.

THAT will not be tolerated. So shut up, stupid.

Won’t you make a generous tax-deductible donation to Trad. Inc’s 501(c)3 today… so they can make ends meet? Because they’re just BARELY, BARELY able to pay the bills, y’all.

(Which reminds me – thanks again to you all, as I was able to give my landlord three months (whew!!) rent in advance last week. He just about cried. At first he thought I was giving him notice that I was vacating. I assured him that I wasn’t. Just getting out in front of things. God bless you all. 😇🙏🏻)

Don’t forget the Portiuncula Indulgence tomorrow!!
