Happy Feast of St. Grumpycat (St. Jerome)

Do you LIKE the Bible?

Thank St. Jerome. He was fluent in… everything, so he was tasked with doing a definitive Latin translation of everything in preparation for setting the Canon of Scripture. Hence, we have to this day St. Jerome’s translation which synthesized perfectly the Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic original texts. I use St. Jerome’s translation, which is the official version of The Church, called the “Vulgate”, translated into modern English, which is called the “Douay-Rheims”.

May God richly reward the people.

St. Jerome was known for not being… cuddly. Hence, I always think of him as Grumpycat.

Now, be inspired by St. Jerome’s grumpy wisdom. Be attentive!

The Church was founded upon Peter: although elsewhere the same is attributed to all the Apostles, and they all receive the keys of the kingdom of heaven, the strength of the Church depends upon them all alike, yet one among the twelve is chosen so that when a head has been appointed, there may be no occasion for schism.

It is our part to seek,
His to grant what we ask;
ours to make a beginning,
His to bring it to completion;
ours to offer what we can,
His to finish what we cannot.

The Scriptures are shallow enough for a babe to come and drink without fear of drowning and deep enough for theologians to swim in without ever reaching the bottom.

A false interpretation of Scripture causes that the gospel of the Lord becomes the gospel of man, or, which is worse, of the devil.

Instead of speaking saintly words we must act them.

Martyrdom does not consist only in dying for one’s faith. Martyrdom also consists in serving God with love and purity of heart every day of one’s life.

We must love Christ and always seek Christ’s embraces. Then everything difficult will seem easy.

They please the world most, who please Christ least.

It is no fault of Christianity that a hypocrite falls into sin.

Seek to learn on earth those truths which will remain ever valid in Heaven.

So valuable to heaven is the dignity of the human soul that every member of the human race has a guardian angel from the moment the person begins to be.

Without doubt, the Lord grants all favors which are asked of Him in Mass, provided they be fitting for us.

The best advice that I can give you is this. Church-traditions — especially when they do not run counter to the faith — are to be observed in the form in which previous generations have handed them down; and the use of one church is not to be annulled because it is contrary to that of another.

Thank God I am deemed worthy to be hated by the world.

The Church of Christ has been founded by shedding its own blood, not that of others; by enduring outrage, not by inflicting it. Persecutions have made it grow; martyrdoms have crowned it.

Honest speech does not seek secret places.

Whosoever you are who introduce new doctrines, I beseech you to spare the ears of Romans! Spare that faith which was commended by the voice of an Apostle. Why should you attempt to teach us, at the end of hundreds of years, that which we never heard before? Why bring forward what Peter and Paul did not will to make known? Until this day, the world was Christian without your doctrine. Thus, I hold as an old man onto that faith wherein I was regenerated as a boy.

Woman is the root of all evil.

SADLY UPDATED: You Might Be Backing an Antipope If…

{Update 29 September, ARSH 2020, Michelmas. To many peoples’ horror, but not surprise, the Apostasy of Trad Inc. is now moving at breakneck speed. Intransigently holding the false base premise that “Francis” is Pope inevitably leads to schism (denying the Papacy, going Eastern Orthodox), but swiftly thereafter denial of The Church in toto. Yes, we are talking full-blown apostasy. Folks, FLEE THIS MADNESS. Fast and pray. Do NOT for a second engage or entertain this obvious diabolical disorientation, all the fetid fruit of intransigently holding an obviously, VISIBLY false base premise, namely that Jorge Bergoglio is now or ever has been the Vicar of Christ. You will know them by their fruits. You WILL know them by their fruits. -AB}

(A viewer of the Part 1 video, “The Bergoglian Antipapacy” emailed and asked if I would PLEASE make a dedicated post about the two slides at the 02:06:45 through 02:09:30 marks.  Here is the video – you will have to advance it to 02:06:45 -AND I have typed up the transcript.

I repost this as attacks on the PAPACY ITSELF by so-called ‘Trad Inc. thought leaders’ escalate as they, sadly, careen towards apostasy. That’s right. These people are talking behind closed doors about total apostasy – as in there is no Church, and either no God, or if there is a God, our conception of Him is totally wrong. Sedevacantism is peanuts compared to apostasy, which is where the false base premise of Antipope Bergoglio being or ever having been the Pope invariably leads. It leads to a denial of the Divinity of Christ – total apostasy by definition. I’ve been ranting this for years now.

Sadly, I can’t say I’m surprised. But, the priority now is mitigation of the damage that this is causing (especially this dripping hatred of the Papacy in se) and the terrible damage and scandal that will come if and when these ‘Trad Inc. thought leaders’ actually publicly apostatize. God forbid.

Tu es Petrus, et super hanc petram aedificabo Ecclesiam Meam.

Words have meaning, especially when they come from the lips of Our Lord and Savior in the Gospels.

Pray for Pope Benedict XVI, for the Papacy, and for Holy Mother Church, of which the Pope, Christ’s Vicar on earth, is the visible and supernaturally protected head, whether he likes it or not.)


Begin Transcript:

If holding the base premise that Jorge Bergoglio is now or ever has been the Pope requires you to:

-Tear down and deny the authority of the papacy… CHECK

-Deny the dogma of the indefectibility of the Church… CHECK

-Deny Papal Infallibility, that is, Vatican I, and thus believe that Christ has broken His promise, and thus deny Christ’s Divinity… CHECK

-Go against every saint and Church father… CHECK

-Deny visible, objective reality as we have covered in this presentation… CHECK

Violate the Law of Non-contradiction… CHECK

-AND, change your own position 180 degrees. All these people on the “conservative” and “Trad” right, six years ago today when Pope Benedict was living in the Apostolic Palace, and plotting his faux-resignation, every one of these people would have defended the Papacy, Papal Infallibility, I mean, it was just a common thing. You believed it.  Now these people have turned 180 degrees and are on a daily basis attacking the Papacy. 180 degree turn.  With all of these criteria here above.

Denying dogma.

Holding positions that necessarily lead almost immediately to a denial of the Divinity of Christ.  COME ON!

How could you NOT begin from the assumption that the error must be with YOUR base premise, and NOT with God, His Holy Church, and His saints?  How could you sit here and it not INSTANTLY occur to you that YOU must be the one that is wrong?

I must be holding a false base premise.  There MUST be something wrong with my assumption that Bergoglio is the Pope. Not with the Papacy. Not with the Church. Not with the saints, not with anything else.’

The narcissism….

I am hard-pressed to think of a group that has been a bigger failure over the past century than theologians and canon lawyers… and yet.  AND YET.  We’re all supposed to bow and scrape to them? You can’t even think THIS through?  It hasn’t even occurred to you that maybe the problem isn’t God, His Church and all the saints – maybe, maybe the problem is with YOUR base premise?  A group of people who have done nothing but fail for almost a century now, that is theologians and canon lawyers.”

End Transcript.


Again, the TIMESTAMP you want here is 02:06:45.


“We’ve been looking for the enemy for some time now. We’ve finally found him. We’re surrounded. That simplifies things.”

Feeling low? Despairing? Believing the peddlers of defeatism?

I know what you need!  You need an injection of pure, refined, Vitamin Chesty Puller!

Lieutenant General Lewis Burwell “Chesty” Puller (26 June 1898 – 11 October 1971) was a United States Marine officer. He is the most decorated United States Marine, and one of two US servicemen to be awarded five Navy Crosses and one Army Distinguished Service Cross.

“All right. They’re on our left.  They’re on our right. They’re in front of us. They’re behind us… They can’t get away this time.”

“We’ve been looking for the enemy for some time now. We’ve finally found him. We’re surrounded. That simplifies things.”
Message sent during the Battle of Chosin Reservoir (December ARSH 1950)

“Where the Hell do you put the bayonet?”
He said this while at a flamethrower demonstration. Apparently, Puller wanted to be ready to stab the men he set on fire. (ARSH 1944)

“I want to go where the guns are.”
Statement on his reasons for leaving Virginia Military Institute after his freshman year to enlist in the US Marine Corps (ARSH 1918)

“I want you to do one thing for me — write your people back home and tell ’em there’s one hell of a damned war on out here, and that the raggedy-tailed North Koreans have been whipping a lot of so-called good American troops, and may do it again. Tell ’em there’s no secret weapon for our country but to get hard, to get in there and fight.
I want you to make ’em understand: Our country won’t go on forever, if we stay soft as we are now. There won’t be any America — because some foreign soldiery will invade us and take our women and breed a hardier race.

“Our Eighth Army headquarters is still in Seoul. I don’t understand how they expect the troops to reach the Yalu River without their leaders.”
Statement of US preparations in Korea (November ARSH 1950)

Governor of Flahrda calls stone-cold bullshit on Covidanity OneWorldReligion, reopens everything, cancels all fines. Let him be just the first of fifty.

And so it begins… 😁🙏🏻

And reported by NPR no less…

Go Gata!

In related news, in Boulder, Colorado, 17 year olds can congregate with 23 year olds, but the MasonicSniffles will KILL any group of 18-22 year olds.

Only, only, only in Boulder could something so abjectly stupid be accepted as “law”.

Dear leftist children, didn’t we tell you that when your masters came to power that you would be some of the first put up against the wall? Stupid brats….

Barnhardt Podcast #123: Put Not Your Trust in the Princes of Men

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode we discuss the announcement of the death of Ruth Bader Ginsberg and the foaming-at-the-mouth reaction of liberals and the media (but we repeat ourselves) which ranges from random women posting videos of themselves screaming uncontrollably to news people canonizing the memory of “Blessed Ruth” to.. well, we have no idea what Al Sharpton said. Meanwhile an error on the opposite side of the political spectrum has been to herald Trump as the anointed and blessed leader ordained by God to lead us out of our liberal morass and to a new, golden age of American decency, goodness, and even holiness. We would do wise to remember: “Put not your trust in princes, in the children of men, in whom there is no salvation. (Psalm 145:2-3)”

Crosspost: CDC exposes their own criminality, posts corona mortality rates by age group: Mirror this before they take it down

NonVeni Mark is on it like white on rice. (That’s raaayyciisss!)

The CDC conducted some actual science around corona transmissibility and mortality. They have long been on record as saying the actual spread is at least 10x the reported number of “cases,” or positive tests. Which means the mortality rate, just simple math, would be 10x lower than currently reported. Which we know is still wildly inflated by counting all deaths “with” corona as deaths “from” corona. Only 6000 people have died from corona alone. Death by motorcycle but with corona goes into the corona pile. The real number of people who died from contracting corona, who would not have otherwise died from something else these past six months, is a figure much, much lower than the 200K “official” deaths… I am a non-medical non-paid reality spokesperson.

Well, now they have published the “most likely” scenario of how dangerous the corona is, by age group. If you click on the link, the first several pages of verbiage explain the methodology and many different inputs. You should read it all. Eventually if you scroll down far enough, you will see the smoking gun.

I want you to focus on the far right column of this chart, “Current Best Estimate,” and look at the second row of data, “Infection Fatality Rate” (mortality rates among people who contract the corona, by age group).

Do you see what I see? Again, this includes all the Stage 4 cancers, strokes, kidney failures and accident victims who were suspected of corona. Now allow me to convert those “official” mortality rates into survival rates, to make it easier to understand and share, and judge for yourself if everything, especially everything related to young people, should continue to be cancelled, or, NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN CANCELLED.

  1. 0-19 years old: 99.997% survival

  2. 20-49 years old: 99.98% survival

  3. 50-69 years old: 99.5% survival

  4. 70+ years old: 94.6% survival

And again, the real numbers are even 4x-5x better than these. Never mind that half the people over 70 who died were probably murdered in nursing homes. 

Get the word out, folks. Time to end this.

“Only the person who becomes irate without reason sins. Further, the person who does not become irate when he has cause to be, sins.”


“Only the person who becomes irate without reason, sins. Whoever becomes irate for a just reason is not guilty. Because, if ire were lacking, the science of God would not progress, judgments would not be sound, and crimes would not be repressed.

Further, the person who does not become irate when he has cause to be, sins. For an unreasonable patience is the hotbed of many vices: it fosters negligence, and stimulates not only the wicked, but above all the good, to do wrong.”
(St. John Chrysostom, Homily XI super Matheum, 1c, nt.7)


“Ire may be understood in two ways.

In one way, as a simple movement of the will that inflicts punishment not through passion, but by virtue of a judgment of the reason: and in this case, without a doubt, lack of ire is a sin. This is how Chrysostom understands ire when he says: ‘Ire, when it has a cause, is not ire but judgment. For properly speaking, ire is a movement of passion. And when a man is irate with just cause, his ire does not derive from passion. Rather, it is an act of judgment, not of ire.”

In another way, ire can be understood as a movement of the sensitive appetite agitated by passion with bodily excitation. This movement is a necessary sequel in man to the previous movement of his will, since the lower appetite naturally follows the movement of the higher appetite unless some obstacle prevents it. Hence the movement of ire in the sensitive appetite cannot be lacking altogether, unless the movement of the will is altogether lacking or weak. Consequently, the lack of the passion of ire is also a vice, as it is the lack of movement in the will to punish according to the judgment of reason.”
(St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologiae, II, II, q. 158, art. 8)


“Hope has two beautiful daughters; their names are Anger and Courage. Anger at the way things are, and Courage to see that they do not remain as they are.”

Webinar for learning to serve the Latin Mass! Men and lads should sign up now! You WILL be needed!

Latin Responses Webinar

For serving the traditional Roman Mass

Louis Tofari will host a 4-week curriculum of live webinars for boys and men to learn the acolyte’s Latin responses during the traditional Roman Mass.

This uniquely integrated course will include a review of:

• liturgical Latin and its basics of pronunciation,

• the significance of the prayers said by the servers,

• some important background information (e.g., what are the Preparatory Prayers, psalms and their structure, Psalm 42, saints in Confiteor, etc.),

• an explanation and practice of the associated gestures and reverences (folded hands, signs of the cross, bowing, striking the breast),

• and homework exercises.

During the past 25 years, Mr. Tofari has developed a unique and well-rounded course for teaching the server’s Latin responses, not only consisting of innovative training techniques, but also providing background information about what the server says.

In this way, the server learns not just how and when to say the responses, but why, thereby appreciating the profound significance of these prayers used in the highest act of Catholic worship, the Mass.
