Can you feel the desperation in “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” yet?

With each passing year, the motif of desperate pleading for Christ to come grows stronger.

This isn’t the mere “Advent hymn” or “Christmas song” of seven years ago, now is it? Not if you’re paying any attention. The notion of ransoming captives isn’t external to our experience anymore the way it used to be.

Three versions. Original Latin, Bluegrass and Instrumental. Bluegrass is by definition a mournful, longing sound, and the Cello in the instrumental selection likewise carries the mournful, pleading sound.




“What makes a man like Bergoglio, Doc, what makes him do the things he does?”

Johnny Ringo Antipope Jorge Bergoglio: After I’m done with the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate, take your Cowgirls and finish off The Knights of Malta and all of the Carmelites.  You burn ’em, Ike João.  Burn ’em all.

Ike Clanton João Braz de Aviz:  Hell, Johnny Jorge, they ain’t even gonna show.

Johnny Ringo Antipope Jorge Bergoglio:  They’ll show.


Wyatt Earp:  I spent my whole life not knowin’ what I wanted out of life. Just chasin’ my tail.  Now for the first time I know exactly what I want, and who. That’s the damnable misery of it.  What makes a man like Ringo Bergoglio, Doc, what makes him do the things he does?

Doc Holliday: A man like Ringo Bergoglio has a great empty hole right through the middle of him. He can never kill enough, or steal enough, or inflict enough pain to ever fill it.

Wyatt Earp:  What does he need?

Doc Holliday: Revenge.

Wyatt Earp: For WHAT?

Doc Holliday: Being born.

Hey, remember when Ganswein doubled-down on his 20 May 2016 speech a week later?

Excerpted below is Maike Hickson’s reportage and translation of Paul Badde’s EWTN interview with Archbishop Georg Gänswein one week after Gänswein’s 20 May ARSH 2016 speech at the Gregorianum in Rome, outlining the total illegality and canonical invalidity of Pope Benedict’s failed attempted partial resignation/bifurcation of the Petrine Munus.

If you have never taken the quarter of an hour it takes to sit down and read Gänswein’s 20 May speech in full, I beg you to click here and do so now.

Then read the reportage of the interview he gave one week later, excerpted below.

Then sit and stillness and consider the YEARS of ruthless, unrelenting insistence by Trad Inc. parti$an$ and the rest of the Novus Ordo world, consisting of ad hominem attacks, name-calling, personal insults, slanders, attempted character assassinations, and even malicious, calculated campaigns of full-blown personal calumny, that there is NO EVIDENCE of ANYTHING amiss or afoul; that ANY questioning whatsoever of Bergoglio qua Pope and the canonical validity of Pope Benedict’s attempted partial resignation is the domain of schizophrenic conspiracy theories and the mortal sin of SCHISM; and then contemplate that no one, not ONE PERSON inside the Roman Curia did ANY Canonical due diligence with regards to Pope Benedict’s attempted partial resignation in February ARSH 2013 because “it was obvious that there is no problem whatsoever with his resignation.” Riiiiiight.

Just dedicate less time than it takes to pray two sets of Mysteries of the Rosary to reading the citations above and below, and then just… think. Read the citations above and below and ask yourself if, “Nuh-uh! Shut up, Stupid!” is an honest, much less satisfactory response.

Badde reports in his interview that he knows of cardinals in the Vatican “who are still shocked that the Catholic Church has right now two living successors of Peter.” He continues: “You yourself have recently spoken about an enlargement of the Petrine ministry, of an exponentiation, I believe. Could you explain this a little more?”

Gänswein answers, as follows:

Yes, you refer here to the book presentation of an Italian professor, Roberto Regoli, who has written a book about the first evaluation of the pontificate [of Pope Benedict]. He is professor at the Gregorian University and that is where the book was presented, as well. I was one of the two persons who presented it, and indeed, I spoke about a exponentiated [enlarged] pontificate. It is clear – to say it clearly, because I have seen in some of the reactions how people insinuated things that I never said. Of course: Pope Francis is the lawfully elected and lawful pope. That is to say, there are not two popes – the one lawful, the other unlawful, that is simply not correct. And I simply said – that is also what Pope Benedict said – that he, after all, is still present with his prayers, with his sacrifices, in the “Recinto” of Saint Peter [within the walls and precincts of the Vatican], and that, through these prayers, through these sacrifices, there shall come forth spiritual fruit for his successors and for the Church. That is what I meant to say, and now we have had for three years two popes and I have the impression that the reality that I perceive is covered by what I have said.

Paul Badde then sums up how he understands what Archbishop Gänswein tries to say:

If I understand you aright, he [Benedict] remained in the office, but in the contemplative part, without having any authority to decide. Thus we have – as you said – now an active and a contemplative part which form together an enlargement of the Munus Petrinum [primacy and office of Peter]?

Gänswein responds:

That is what I have said, indeed, that – if one wishes to specify it – it is very clear, the Plena Potestas, the Plenitudo Potestatis [full power, incarnate authority] is in the hands of Pope Francis. He is the man who has right now the succession of Peter. And then there are no difficulties left, as I also have said it. These two are also not in a competitive relationship. That is where one has to make use of common sense, as well as the Faith and a little bit of theology. Then one does not have at all difficulties to understand properly [sic] what I have said.

#TOLDYA Called it two years ago: Two male lead characters in Star Wars confirmed to be sodomites

I called this two years ago in Barnhardt Podcast Episode #039 at the 49:25 timestamp. The black storm trooper guy and the new Han Solo guy (Finn and Poe) are confirmed by J.J. Abrams to be sodomites in the upcoming Devil Mouse Star Wars movie. This has been planned since the first episode in this Devil Mouse trilogy. I saw it when I made the mistake of watching Episode 7 on someone’s bootleg. The black storm trooper guy and the new Han Solo guy had a TOTAL faggot moment of saucy, lingering eye contact in the ARSH 2015 movie. It was disgusting.

Remember folks, with Diabolical Narcissists, it’s all about CORRUPTION. They luxuriate in CORRUPTING things, and the better and more innocent the person or thing, the more demonic satisfaction they derive from CORRUPTING it. DNS hate innocence, purity, and especially sincere piety, and will attempt to degrade, subvert and/or overturn it whenever they see it. I am reminded of both women and men who chase and bed priests….

This is why sodomites go after children and adolescents. They relish in CORRUPTING them. It’s why there is such an attraction on the part of sex perverts of both sexes to the objective of the infiltration and corruption of the Church. It’s why sodomites in the Church chase seminarians relentlessly. And it is why these DN monsters are now going after a secular cultural touchstone like Star Wars. It really is true that yes, they want to utterly destroy and CORRUPT even people’s memories of childhood.

Steer well clear. And don’t throw money at these evil wretches by falling for this new “Baby Yoda” gimmick that they have just come out with. Don’t fall for it. Don’t feed this hellspawn.

On Fulton Sheen, Elizabeth Scalia, and Divine Providence

The professional Novus Ordo Catholic, Elizabeth Scalia, made a sickening and calumnious tweet about Venerable Fulton Sheen yesterday, in which she backhandedly accuses Sheen of being a sex pervert:

  1.  The Divine Providence is perfect, and wondrous to behold.  Consider: if YOU were a saint in heaven, would you want to be beatified or canonized by an apostate Antipope and the likely False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist?  Would you want to be “beatified” or “canonized” by the Freemasonic Antichurch – especially when you personally prophesied against it?  In a related vein, I have a gut feeling that Antipope Bergoglio shipping relics of St. Peter and now relics of Our Lord’s Crib out of Rome may very well be the Divine Providence protecting these relics from some future physical catastrophe in Rome.
  2. I had a meal years ago with a person who had the misfortune of working for a short time in the same organization as Elizabeth Scalia.  I was shown emails from Scalia that proved that she is very, very emotionally disturbed.  Scalia has since then been FIRED from positions (under the charitable guise of “we will permit you to offer your resignation – NOW”) for her intolerable workplace behavior and treatment of co-workers.
  3. Despite what even most “Trads” today will tell you, sanctity and Same Sex Attraction are mutually exclusive because the psycho-spiritual pathology of SSA and all sexual perversions are derived from DIABOLICAL NARCISSISM, which is THE VOLUNTARY SELF-PURGATION OF LOVE (CHARITY) FROM THE SOUL.  Someone should make a three hour video presentation about that….  A person CANNOT be holy if they have purged themselves of love to the point that they lust after the same sex by definition.  You’ve got to be pretty damn far-gone to be that much of a pervert.  And yes, the “orientation” itself is sinful, which is why we say in the Confiteor, “…quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere:“; “that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed:”  Folks, this error that SSA is not intrinsically sinful is absolutely pernicious, because if lusting after the same sex is not sinful unless one acts upon it, then neither is lusting after children, or blood relatives, or animals, or dead bodies – so long as the monster in question “doesn’t act upon it”.  That is CLEARLY, OBVIOUSLY wrong.  Let me take it further.  By that standard, the Blessed Virgin Mary could have been “SSA”, so long as she didn’t “act on it”, because remember, the error claims that “there IS NO SIN in SSA in and of itself.”  Do you see the satanic lies that leap forth from the logical truth table built on the lying false premise that SSA “is not intrinsically sinful” and thus “does not preclude holiness??”  It’s funny, but the most strident Trad defenders of the lie that SSA is not intrinsically sinful that I have known personally ALL run with sodomites and either turn a blind eye to it or excuse it because the sex perverts in question have “good taste in liturgy”. Funny that….
  4. Finally, let us conclude with Venerable Sheen’s incontrovertible prophecy:

“[Satan] will set up a counterchurch which will be the ape of the [Catholic] Church … It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content.”

We are living in the days of the Apocalypse, the last days of our era. The two great forces – the Mystical Body of Christ and the Mystical Body of the anti-Christ – are beginning to draw battle lines for the catastrophic contest.

The False prophet will have a religion without a cross. A religion without a world to come. A religion to destroy religions. There will be a counterfeit Church.

Christ’s Church the Catholic Church will be one; and the false Prophet will create the other.

The False Church will be worldly, ecumenical, and global. It will be a loose federation of churches and religions, forming some type of global association.

A world parliament of Churches. It will be emptied of all Divine content, it will be the mystical body of the anti-christ. The Mystical Body on earth today will have its Judas Iscariot, and he will be the false prophet. Satan will recruit him from our Bishops.

The Antichrist will not be so called; otherwise he would have no followers. He will not wear red tights, nor vomit sulphur, nor carry a trident nor wave an arrowed tail as Mephistopheles in Faust. This masquerade has helped the Devil convince men that he does not exist. When no man recognizes, the more power he exercises. God has defined Himself as “I AM WHO AM,” and the Devil as “I am who am not.”

Nowhere in Sacred Scripture do we find warrant for the popular myth of the Devil as a buffoon who is dressed like the first “red.” Rather is he described as an angel fallen from heaven, as “the Prince of this world,” whose business it is to tell us that there is no other world. His logic is simple: if there is no heaven there is no hell; if there is no hell, then there is no sin; if there is no sin, then there is no judge, and if there is no judgment then evil is good and good is evil. But above all these descriptions, Our Lord tells us that he will be so much like Himself that he would deceive even the elect–and certainly no devil ever seen in picture books could deceive even the elect. How will he come in this new age to win followers to his religion?

The pre-Communist Russian belief is that he will come disguised as the Great Humanitarian; he will talk peace, prosperity and plenty not as means to lead us to God, but as ends in themselves …

The third temptation in which Satan asked Christ to adore him and all the kingdoms of the world would be His, will become the temptation to have a new religion without a Cross, a liturgy without a world to come, a religion to destroy a religion, or a politics which is a religion–one that renders unto Caesar even the things that are God’s.

In the midst of all his seeming love for humanity and his glib talk of freedom and equality, he will have one great secret which he will tell to no one: he will not believe in God. Because his religion will be brotherhood without the fatherhood of God, he will deceive even the elect. He will set up a counterchurch which will be the ape of the Church, because he, the Devil, is the ape of God. It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content. It will be a mystical body of the Antichrist that will in all externals resemble the mystical body of Christ …

But the twentieth century will join the counterchurch because it claims to be infallible when its visible head speaks ex cathedra from Moscow on the subject of economics and politics, and as chief shepherd of world communism.

The Truth’s Pronouns are He/Him/His. Let HIM Loose.

“The truth in this situation doesn’t really matter because no one is going to do anything about it anyway.”

“What do you think you’re going to accomplish?”

“What difference, at this point, does it make?”

These are all tropes one hears regarding the Antipope Bergoglio situation, and each one betrays the forgetting at best, and denial at worst, of a fundamental dogma of the One True Faith:

The Truth is a Person – a Divine Person, in fact. The Truth is Our Lord Himself.

Therefore, proclaiming the Truth is proclaiming Christ.

The proclamation of the Truth matters because Christ matters, and this fact is in no way contingent upon whether or not men act in response. Ultimately, Christ is The Actor, and He is not mocked, and He alone rules, and the victory is His.

The question of accomplishment is totally derived from the Will of God. When the Truth, which is Christ Himself, is proclaimed, He will accomplish what He wants, how He wants, when He wants, through whomever He wants, or totally Supernaturally, if He so wills.

The Truth always “makes a difference” because the Truth is Our Lord Himself, who is omnipotent.

(Pro tip: if your argument leads you to start quoting Hillary Clinton, you REALLY might want to check your base premise.)

And so, we would all do well to use the proper pronouns. The Truth’s pronouns are not It/It/Its, but He/Him/His.

As St. Augustine’s famous saying goes:

The Truth is like a lion. You don’t have to defend HIM. Let HIM loose; HE will defend HIMSELF.

ANOTHER DAILY Barnhardt Benefactor Mass Added!

Stupendous news!  Another priest reader, this priest being a scholar in Europe, has started commemorating Barnhardt Benefactors and Supporters DAILY, so we are now up to a minimum of TWO, and often-times THREE Masses per day offered for the salvation of your souls and your intentions.  And remember, once you’re on “the list”, you will never be removed, even if you decide at some later date that you hate me.  (Me an’ God, we’ve got an arrangement.)

Tying up money with anything having to do with the One True Faith is super-dangerous territory.  Satan uses money, perhaps even more than sex, to leverage and compromise people.  The vice of effeminacy, that is the reluctance to do anything that might reduce one’s personal comfort or pleasure in life, is CLEARLY joined at the hip to love of money.  The near-total silence we hear with regards to the Bergoglian Antipapacy is mostly a function of money-based effeminacy: fear that confronting Antipope Bergoglio will result in a loss of monetary income (blegging, subscriptions, grants, fellowships, book deals, salaried positions under the aegis of the Church, etc.) OR loss of non-monetary wealth, meaning career tracks, perks, and general “high living” perks such as luxury real estate lodgings that many Bishops and Cardinals especially are completely addicted to.

As a person coming off of worldly success (I pushed the pencil on the question not long ago, and I estimate my current annual gross income to be less than SIX PERCENT of my peak a decade ago – and yet, oddly enough, my quality of life is through the roof – funny that!), it is especially painful to live on other people’s money, essentially.  Not long after I put a PayPal button up (PayPal lasted as a viable option for just over a year – thank goodness) I was shocked to hear other people who also lived on their PayPal button talk about their donors in contemptuous terms (they called their donors “the rubes”), and the sickening sense of entitlement they openly displayed.  I resolved immediately to take steps to somehow, some way, do SOMETHING for my benefactors, and to hopefully keep myself from being destroyed by my own foray into the morally dangerous waters of, gulp, “professional Catholicism”.  Shudder.

There is nothing I can write or say that could ever be anything more than Epsilon compared to the literal INFINITUDE of ONE MASS offered for the salvation of the souls of my Benefactors and Supporters.  Which means that there can also never be enough Masses offered!  We are now at two or three per day, every day.  THIS is the true consolation.  Since I have always been a very firm believer in the notion that simply doing the right thing is not in any way heroic or deserving of any sort of reward or remuneration, I am constantly aware that EVERY PENNY that comes to me from donors is ONE HUNDRED PERCENT GRATUITOUS on the part of the donor.  What better return can I make than the act of INFINITE GRATUITOUS LOVE ITSELF, the Sacrifice of Calvary?

It is an honor and a pleasure to be alive in these days, and to be able to fight for the One True Faith, Holy Mother Church, the Papacy, and the Roman Pontiff, Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger.

It is a CATEGORICAL JOY to be able to have the Holy Sacrifice offered multiple times per day, every day, for you.  Thank you for the privilege.

In a related vein, I received this very moving email on Saturday:

Dear Ann,
Today was the funeral of Mr. T., he was 94 years old. He was very dedicated to his wife and the Church. We would often at times discuss your pieces. He saw the devastation that happened in the past 50 years and more. How ironic that today is the anniversary of the Novus Ordo. His Funeral Requiem Mass was the second traditional Mass held at our parish in the past 50+ years! My mother’s Funeral Requiem was the first a few months ago. I am thankful for your prayers for her and the Masses offered each day that you arranged. Mr. T. would pray in Adoration for sometimes eight hours per day even in his 90s! He usually prayed 16 Rosaries per day! I am sure that the Masses you arranged and all the prayers Mr. T. has offered up will, through the intersession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, help many that we cannot see in this mortal life. I have enclosed photos of the effect of the physical changes in ONE year in the 1960s at our Parish. Mr. T. helped pay for much of what was lost to be restored, but his prayers were the most important gift. God bless you for all you do-
