Don Fili, I love you, and thank you for everything from the bottom of my heart. Please continue to pray for me and for my benefactors and supporters.

In this life there is no purgatory; it is either hell or paradise; for to him who serves God truly, every trouble and infirmity turns into consolations, and through all kinds of trouble he has a paradise within himself even in this world: and he who does not serve God truly, and gives himself up to sensuality, has one hell in this world, and another in the next.
-St. Philip Neri

Happy Ivermectin story of the day: ‘Oh, THAT’S why my daughter has been chronically sickly’ Edition

Ann,

I’d like to share a quick anecdote about Ivermectin that I think you might find interesting along with a quick note of thanks.

I’ve been taking Ivermectin per your recommendation – feeling the start of a cold, etc – and have been cold/flu free since I started 6 months ago. My wife isn’t quite convinced and has not taken any. We have four kids (5, 4, 2 and one on the way) and – as these things go- influenza A is running through our house (kids 5, 4 and 2 are all in rough shape with typical flu symptoms – fevers, hacking coughs, running noses) suffice it to say that we’ve had a few rough nights.

Yesterday, the sickest of our children – the 4-year old- who just seems a bit more prone to being sick- always gets hit the hardest– reached a point of misery that was heartbreaking. The poor kid was having trouble breathing, red nose, fever and … I broke down and gave her 0.25 cc of Ivomec. We have livestock and have used it extensively so I wasn’t concerned- she’s 35 lbs … definitely not a feeder pig or a calf but it seemed like the right thing to do.

Ivermectin dosage graph made by an eight year old homeschooler. One mL per 110 pounds of body weight of 1% livestock injectable solution, given to humans orally to drink.

Well, this evening- after putting all of the children to bed- my wife walks into the kitchen with an 8 inch round worm she found in the toilet that she’d retrieved with kitchen tongs crying and saying ‘we have a serious problem with {the 4 year old}’. [Not anymore.]

Our 4 year old hasn’t mastered the art of flushing after using the toilet and my wife noticed something odd in the bowl. Of course, I had to confess that I’d inadvertently (but effectively) dewormed our child with Ivomec just yesterday while trying to aid her flu symptoms . We had no idea – she has no indication of having worms- nothing to make us think there was an issue. [See the bold underlined text two paragraphs up above the dosage graph.]

So – thank you. It’s an oddball situation, but I would not have done what I did without reading and listening to your work and it’s healed our child of something we didn’t even know was an issue and could have developed into something much worse. (Her flu symptoms are much better too!). Even my wife’s 4th pregnancy (7 weeks along now) occurred against the backdrop of a lot of the things you’ve discussed in recent blog posts and podcasts with irregularities and difficulties and delays that we never faced in previous pregnancies. The point is… God is really really good. Thank you again for your work … the story is a bit gross but I wanted you to know how much of a difference you’ve made in our lives by telling the truth and sharing your knowledge – and it goes without saying…

We are praying for you!

Signed,

Pater Familias

Wherein Briggs and his combox write my words for me: UFO’s ARE FAKE and GAY

Click over and read Briggs’ piece, but what I really want to scream from the mountaintops was articulated in Briggs’ combox by “Zundfolge”. It’s soooooooo obvious. I mean, like Bergoglio-is-an-Antipope obvious…

I suspect the public is being primed for some sort of announcement of “contact with alien intelligence”. This “alien intelligence” will actually be human and terrestrial in origin, but TPTB will pretend they’re talking to space aliens and the space aliens have told us they won’t let humanity join “the brotherhood of the cool species” until we stop using fossil fuels, eating meat, owning property, etc.

In other words they’re going to use these faux aliens as a pretext for more the people to hand more of their lives, liberties and property over to the Globalists.

The only thing Zundfolge leaves out is that the Fake Gay Alien psyops will also attempt to deny the existence of God, most especially God Incarnate, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Just watch. If it happens, the Fake Gay Alien “messages” will be boilerplate Freemasonic pantheistic “the only divinity is your own intellect” crap. Atheist apostates will eat it up. Some already are.

Happy Pentecost! Got Zeal?

The Third Glorious Mystery of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Co-Redemptrix, is the descent of the Holy Ghost at Pentecost. The fruit of this mystery is ZEAL – LOVE OF GOD. 🔥

An excellent collection of quotes on the utter necessity of zeal for the salvation of souls.  Remember these quotes when you hear anyone say that proselytism is “solemn nonsense”, or that they have no desire to convert a person or persons to the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, outside of which there is no salvation.


St. James the Apostle: “He must know that he who causeth a sinner to be converted from the error of his way will save his own soul from death and shall cover a multitude of sins” (St. James 5, 19-20).


St. John Chrysostom, (ARSH 347-407), the illustrious Bishop of Constantinople, and Doctor of the Church, tells us: “Zeal for the salvation of souls is of so great a merit before God, that to give up all our goods to the poor, or to spend our whole life in the exercises of all sorts of austerities cannot equal the merit of it. There is no service more agreeable to God than this one. To employ one’s life in this blessed labor is more pleasing to the Divine Majesty than to suffer martyrdom. Would you not feel happy if you could spend large sums of money in corporal works of mercy? But know that he who labors for the salvation of souls does far more; nay, the zeal of souls is of far greater merit before God . . . than the working of miracles.”


Pope St. Gregory the Great (ARSH 590-604): “No sacrifice is more acceptable to God than zeal for souls.”


St. Vincent de Paul (ARSH 1576-1660): That St. Vincent was devoured by zeal for the house of God, his entire life testifies, because that life was employed in combating evil and extending the reign of good; and in this consists true zeal. Listen to some of his instructions to his community: “Let us give ourselves to God, gentlemen, to go to carry His holy Gospel over the entire earth and into whatever part He may lead us; there, let us maintain our part, and continue our duties until such time as His good pleasure will withdraw us. Let no difficulties move us, the glory of the eternal Father and the efficacy of the Word and of the passion of His Son are at stake. The salvation of men and our own are so great that they merit to be obtained at any price.”


St. Rose of Lima, (ARSH 1586-1617). We read that her confessor offered himself to go to the missions, but he feared because of the dangers it would entail. After consulting the saint, he heard these words: “Go Father, and do not fear. Leave all to labor for the conversion of the infidel, and know that the greatest service that man can offer to God is to convert souls, for this is a work proper of the Apostolate. What greater happiness could there be than to baptize, be it only a little Indian child who would enter Heaven through the gates of Baptism?”


St. John de Brebeuf (ARSH 1593-1649), one of the eight North American Martyrs, was heard to say, after pouring the saving waters of Baptism on a dying Indian child, “For this one single occasion I would travel all the way from France; I would cross the great ocean to win one little soul for Our Lord!”


St. Margaret Mary (ARSH 1647-1690): “My divine Savior has given to understand that those who work for the salvation of souls will have a gift of touching the most hardened hearts, and will labor with marvelous success, if they themselves are penetrated with a tender devotion to His Divine Heart.”


St. Anthony Mary Claret (ARSH 1808-1870): “Another thing that spurs me on to preach ceaselessly is the thought of the multitude of souls which fall into the depths of hell, who die in mortal sin, condemned forever and ever… if you were to see a blind man about to fall into a pit or over a precipice, would you not warn him? Behold, I do the same…” “How often I pray with St. Catherine of Siena: O my God, grant me a place by the gates of Hell, that I may stop those who enter there, saying: “Where are you going, unhappy one? Back, go back! Make a good confession. Save your soul. Don’t come here to be lost for all eternity!” St. Anthony resolved never to waste a moment of time, and during his 35 years as a priest, he wrote 144 books and preached some 25,000 sermons. On one trip, besides traveling, he preached 205 sermons in 48 days and 12 in one day.


The motivating force that dominated St. John Bosco’s (ARSH 1815-1888) life is found in a phrase that is typically his: “Give me souls, you take the rest.” “There is nothing more holy in this world than to work for the good of souls, for whose salvation Jesus Christ poured out the last drops of His Blood.” In his writings and conferences, he consistently pointed out that: “Man is successful in this world if he saves his soul and is very knowledgeable if he knows the science of salvation; but he is a total failure if he loses his soul and knows nothing if he is ignorant of those things that can assure him of eternal salvation.” From his book The Life of St. Dominic Savio, St. John Bosco had this to say of St. Dominic Savio (the teenage saint who died in his 15th year): “The thought of saving souls for God was never out of his mind.” St. Dominic Savio, (1842-1856), in a serious conversation with one of his companions, gave several reasons for his apostolic zeal in “saving souls”: 1. My companion’s soul has been redeemed by Jesus Christ. 2. We are all brothers and so we must love each other’s souls. 3. God urges us to help each other. 4. If I manage to save one soul, I also ensure the salvation of my own.


St. Thérèse of Lisieux (ARSH 1873-1897): “We have only short moments of this life to work for God’s glory. The devil knows this and that is why he tries to make us waste time in useless things. O, let us not waste our time! Let us save souls! Souls are falling into hell innumerable as the flakes of snow on a winter day. Jesus weeps! Instead of consoling Him we are brooding over our own sorrows . . . There is only one thing to do during the brief day, or rather, night of this life: Love Jesus with all the strength of your heart and save souls for Him, so that He may be loved!”


St. Padre Pio (ARSH 1887-1968): “Time spent in honor of God and for the salvation of souls is never badly spent.


St. Maximilian Kolbe (ARSH 1894-1941): “We have no right to rest as long as a single soul is Satan’s slave.”


Pope Pius XII (ARSH 1939-1958): “No one is permitted to be idle and lazy while so many evils and dangers impend, and while those who are on the other side are working so hard to destroy the very basis of Catholic religion.

Fundamentalism is the opposite of Modernism. Fundamentalism is believing what you profess to believe. Therefore, I am a Catholic fundamentlist, and I cannot be gaslighted by anyone for being so, and neither should you.

Let’s begin with a definition.

This is the definition of “fundamental”:

Adjective form: forming a necessary base or core; of central importance; affecting or relating to the essential nature of something or the crucial point about an issue; so basic as to be hard to alter, resolve, or overcome.

Noun form: a central or primary rule or principle on which something is based.

The root is the Latin “fundare”, meaning “to found”.

I was thinking about mathematics this morning, and found it very, very interesting that mathematicians, physicists and engineers that believe:

  • in the commutative properties of addition and multiplication
  • in the associative properties of addition and multiplication
  • in the distributive properties of addition over multiplication
  • that the reciprocal of a non-zero number x is 1/x
  • that the additive inverse of x is (-x)
  • that the additive identity is 0
  • that the multiplicative identity is 1

…are never called “fundamentalists.”

No one ever accuses an engineer of excessive rigidity or of a “fortress mentality” for his unswerving and intransigent belief in the fundamental properties of algebra.  No one deems an engineer deeply flawed as a human being if he refuses to entertain the notion that the additive inverse of x might NOT be (-x), much less tolerate a plan for a building put before him in which the plans operate on the premise that the reciprocal of 2 is ¼. 

The heresy of Modernism has been well defined as “to not believe what one believes”.  Only in the irrational, self-contradicting philosophical matrix of Modernism does believing in the fundamentals of one’s professed belief system make a person either stupid, crazy or evil.

Sadly, in today’s Church, thoroughly infiltrated by Modernism, it is simply incomprehensible that a Catholic not only should, but MUST believe the fundamentals of the Catholic faith with more certainty and less doubt than the fundamental properties of algebra.  The supreme truth in the universe is Catholicism, not mathematics.  After all, five loaves and two fishes went into baskets, and hundreds, if not thousands of loaves and fishes came out.  The multiplicative identity did not hold.

Anyone who actually believes anything is, with regards to that belief, a fundamentalist. To be a fundamentalist is nothing less than to believe what you believe.  It is a truly, truly deranged and depraved mind that can hold as not just tenable, but admirable and virtuous that he does not actually believe what he believes.

What the hurling the word “fundamentalist” as a pejorative at Catholics but not mathematicians, physicists and engineers proves is that the hurler fully and completely assents to and believes in mathematics and does not harbor any doubt.  The facts of Divine Revelation to which the Church bears witness? Not so much. 

Therefore, I am a Catholic fundamentlist, and I cannot be gaslighted by anyone for being so.

God Incarnate, born of a Virgin, who raised Himself from the dead on the third day, superseding the laws of mathematics and physics, of which He Himself is the author and master.

Repost by Request: On the Grave Sins of Doubt and Scandal – “We are forbidden to frequent the company of those who talk against or mock at our religion.”

ARSH 2021 UPDATE: It bears mentioning that Antipope Bergoglio, the head of the Freemasonic Covidic Antichurch religion and likely False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist, has stated on multiple occasions that doubt is GOOD and ESSENTIAL. Remember this when Trad Inc. apostates begin claiming that their doubt is virtuous and a sign of a healthy mind, and that people who have faith, and do NOT doubt revealed truths about God and His Holy Catholic Church are stupid, crazy, cultists, infantile, psychos, enablers, intellectual cripples, zombies… whatever.

Pro tip: when your rhetoric matches that of Antipope Bergoglio and Freemasonry word-for-word, and is in direct opposition to the infallible magisterium of the One True Faith, you MIGHT want to re-examine your base premises.

Pope Francis (sic) says doubt is key to life of faith

Pope Francis (sic): A Faith without Doubts cannot Advance


Another sin which is directly opposed to the virtue of Faith is all willful doubt of any revealed truth. For if it is forbidden to disbelieve a doctrine, it is no less forbidden to doubt of it, since faith requires that we should firmly hold fast, without a moment’s hesitation, what God teaches and the Church proposes. But notice, my dear children, that it is one thing for a doubt to enter into our minds, and another for us to give way to it. What is forbidden by this commandment is a willful doubt; that is, a doubt which comes into our mind and which we do not put away when we notice it, but which we dwell upon on purpose. If we dislike these doubts, and do our best not to think of them, we do not commit any sin, but, on the contrary, gain great merit. We are forbidden, however, to do anything which might bring these doubts into our mind, for example, to read Protestant or irreligious books, to go to Protestant schools, or to frequent the company of those who talk against or mock at our religion, for our faith is a precious gift of God, which we are bound, by every means in our power, to guard and cherish.”

—Catechism Made Easy: Being A Familiar Explanation of the Catechism of Christian Doctrine. Vol. I. (Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur, 1881).


But if any of you want wisdom, let him ask of God, who giveth to all men abundantly, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth (doubts) is like a wave of the sea, which is moved and carried about by the wind. Therefore let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is inconstant in all his ways.
-James 1: 5-8


Respect for the souls of others: scandal

2284 Scandal is an attitude or behavior which leads another to do evil. The person who gives scandal becomes his neighbor’s tempter. He damages virtue and integrity; he may even draw his brother into spiritual death. Scandal is a grave offense if by deed or omission another is deliberately led into a grave offense.

2285 Scandal takes on a particular gravity by reason of the authority of those who cause it or the weakness of those who are scandalized. It prompted our Lord to utter this curse: “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened round his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.”85 Scandal is grave when given by those who by nature or office are obliged to teach and educate others. Jesus reproaches the scribes and Pharisees on this account: he likens them to wolves in sheep’s clothing.86

2286 Scandal can be provoked by laws or institutions, by fashion or opinion.

Praying the Rosary in Light of the Bergoglian Antipapacy: The Joyful Mysteries

In a strange way, one of the things that keeps me motivated is seeing all of the pain and suffering of people in the commboxes of “Trad Inc.” websites. I see people descending into indifference, acedia, resignation that their faith (and the faith of the entire Church for the past 2000 years) has been “wrong”, “childish” and “papolatrous”, and lately lots of talk of going to the Eastern Orthodox – NOT the Byzantine Catholics, mind you, but specifically to the Eastern Orthodox in order to “escape” from any notion of the papacy at all, and even to actively embrace a rejection of the Petrine Office and Primacy.

The main thing I can do to help folks, and I see it every day in my email box and in the kind little notes that come attached to donations, is just EXPLAIN things. I am eternally grateful for every donation that comes in, and sometimes people append lovely long notes with quite a bit of information. But I am also struck many times by the donation that comes in with the two-or-three-word note: KEEP WRITING. Or, DON’T QUIT. Or, KEEP IT UP.

In that vein, I thought it might help some folks to see how exactly the fifteen mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary apply to this current Antipapacy situation. The Rosary is such a powerful, powerful tool and gift. I have learned the lesson well over these past years that if a person has contempt for the Rosary, it is a sure sign that said person is well on the road to reprobation, and should be avoided like the plague. RUN, DO NOT WALK, IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION.  St. Louis de Montfort knew of what he spoke. What I find about the Rosary is that it is, especially when prayed before Our Lord reposed in the Tabernacle, the best “thinking time” – even better that the “thinking time” in the shower, or while walking (or driving for those of you who still have cars). Much of what has been written here in this space on the Bergoglian Antipapacy has been fleshed out while praying the Rosary (the one notable exception being what will go down in lore as “The Great Latin Potential Subjunctive Fracas of ARSH 2018” – and “fracas” has to be pronounced in the posh English country style, “fruh-KAH”, not “FRAY-kuss”.)

Now, you might be thinking, “Ann! When praying the Rosary, one should be thinking about the Mysteries of the Rosary, not anything else!” Ah, but you see, the Rosary is intended to be used as a means to apply the Gospel to our every day lives. In fact, I think that the Rosary should serve as a daily “examination of conscience” aid AND as a way to process the events of one’s daily life. Pray all 15 decades of the Rosary every day, and use the Mysteries to reconcile, process and formulate a path forward EVERY DAY. Given that most of my work these days involves exposing and combatting the Bergoglian Antipapacy, you can imagine that I use the Rosary intensely to “reconcile, process and formulate a path forward.” So, this is a little run-down of how each Mystery applies specifically, but in no way exclusively, to the Bergoglian Antipapacy. These are just some of my thoughts.  As always, I hope this helps.

The Joyful Mysteries

First Joyful Mystery: The Annunciation
Fruit of the Mystery: Humility

Humility is first and foremost knowing who God IS, and what you yourself are NOT. Self-objectivity and self-awareness are key. Go to confession. Early and often. Don’t flirt with evil thinking that you can “handle it”. Avoid bad company and seek out virtuous company.  Admit past mistakes, and then marvel at how the Divine Providence has caused good to come even from your mistakes, and always provided a path forward back to the right track.  So long as we are still drawing breath, there is ALWAYS a path forward towards God, and that path forward is always visible and knowable.

Humility is also knowing what you ARE. What is your state in life? What are your strengths and abilities? Why are you where you are, when you are? “Behold, I am the handmaiden of The Lord.” Handmaidens WORK. Handmaidens SERVE. If The Master wants you to do something, do it. Refusing to answer the Master’s call claiming “unworthiness” for the task at hand is FALSE HUMILITY. If the Master calls you, you answer, and you answer in the affirmative, and worry not about anything else – because The Master is The Master, and you are the handmaiden. In this way, we are constantly reminded of Who God Is. He is INFINITE love, power, justice, mercy, logic, beauty, goodness, knowledge, rationality and truth. The Divine Providence is infinitely wise and thus unfailing, and God is omnipotent. He can do whatever He wants, whenever He wants, however He wants.  Our Lord spoke these words to St. Catherine of Siena on humility:

“Do you know, child, who are you and Who I AM? If you know these two things, you will be blessed. You are she who is not; I, instead, am HE WHO IS. If you have such knowledge in your soul, the enemy will not be able to deceive you, and you will escape from all his perils; you will never consent to anything contrary to My commandments, and you will without difficulty acquire all grace, every truth and every light.”

Direct Application to the Bergoglian Antipapacy: God works in mysterious and surprising ways, and through people. The common trait of such people is HUMILITY, not any worldly status. The truly humble person, because he contemplates Who God Is, and what God’s attributes are, and his own smallness and nothingness, cannot be tricked by the diabolical confusion and chaos of the Bergoglian Antipapacy.

The Second Joyful Mystery: The Visitation
Fruit of the Mystery: Fraternal Charity, Love of Neighbor

“Not my circus, not my monkeys.” “Not my problem to fix.” “Above my pay grade.” “All I can do is focus on myself and my immediate household.” “If other people are scandalized, that’s their problem and their own fault.” “I can’t be arsed.” “This bores me. I’m not interested.”

This is just a sample of things you hear every day that are not only contrary to the virtue of fraternal charity, but even trying to use its inverse, the vice of indifference and acedia, as a proof of sanctity. Everything must be rooted in charity. Every soul is infinitely precious to Our Lord who knit every man together in his mother’s womb, and incarnated, suffered, died and rose again so that men might be with Him forever in the Beatific Vision. ANY blanket statement of indifference or acedia towards one’s fellow man is massively disordered. Our Lady, in her first trimester, underwent a long and physically arduous journey (probably on muleback) to help her elderly cousin Elizabeth then in her third trimester. Say what Our Lady said: “I have to go help.” Even with God Incarnate residing inside her womb, the ultimate paradigm of recourse, Our Lady didn’t merely pray for her cousin Elizabeth to the Infant Christ residing in her own womb, she PHYSICALLY WENT. For the love of Her Son, that is God Himself, she was filled with FRATERNAL CHARITY, that is, love for other human beings, and a desire to be of help and service at no small risk, inconvenience and discomfort (have you ever ridden a donkey?) to herself.

A very wise priest told me years ago that the number one mode of oppression that satan and the demons use in Rome which is the root of all of the wickedness in Rome, including all of the various sins against the 6th Commandment, is the vice of ACEDIA.  There is a demonic cloud of oppression parked over the city of Rome that rains down upon those living there every day and every night an acid rain of ACEDIA, pathological indifference and lovelessness – and hardly anyone in Rome is carrying a proverbial umbrella.  The Divine Office is barely prayed in Rome.  The Rosary is held in eyerolling contempt.  Adoration is sparse.  And almost every church, the Petrine Basilica first among them, has been physically desecrated by sodomites whose presence is UBIQUITOUS.

Acedia is the vice of indifference – to just not care, but beyond that to NOT CARE THAT YOU DON’T CARE.  This makes perfect sense in light of our work on Diabolical Narcissism, which is the freely chosen self-purgation of charity (love) from the soul. Indifference is the opposite of love.  This cancer of acedia is why such massive corruption and sexual perversion has been able to explode into near-ubiquitousness over the past century.  Turning a blind eye.  Declaring indifference. “Not my problem.” “I can’t be arsed.”  “I don’t care who X is having sex with. I just like being fawned over by rich, powerful people.”  When what you are turning a blind eye to is the attempted rape and murder of the Bride of Christ, and thus the loss of countless souls, every one the beloved of Christ, the gravity of the fault goes exponential.

Beyond this, the new trend in “Trad, Inc.” is to declare indifference for Pope Benedict XVI and to the Church, and rejection in the narcissistic formula, “Even if he is the Pope, I don’t WANT him back!”  Joseph Ratzinger matters.  The fact that he is the Vicar of Christ on Earth only underscores this.  The Blessed Virgin loved Peter even after he denied Our Lord and ran away from the foot of the Cross on Good Friday.  And she WOULD have received Judas Iscariot too, if he had gone to her.

Direct application to the Bergoglian Antipapacy: Other human beings matter.  Barricading yourself in your house – just “me ‘n Jesus” – washing your hands of the Bergoglian Antipapacy,  and declaring that it isn’t your problem is a lie and a cop-out. Publicly declaring and ginning up aggressive indifference to Pope Benedict XVI, and thus the Papacy and the Church itself is a species of acedia.  It is our problem, because other human beings are being scandalized unto damnation by it. Our Lady didn’t barricade herself in her house – just her and Jesus. She prayed AND acted.

The Third Joyful Mystery: The Birth of Jesus
Fruit of the Mystery: The Spirit of Poverty

What is the SPIRIT of Poverty? Simply put, it is DETACHMENT from wealth and any and all earthly “treasures”, including those of esteem and reputation. It is no sin to have wealth. The sin is to be ATTACHED to it such that it affects one’s moral decisions. Are you ready to lose absolutely everything if that is what the Divine Providence is? Are you ready to have your donations dry up for taking an unpopular stand? Are you ready to lose your reputation? To be ridiculed? To be mocked? Even ruthlessly calumniated? Are you ready to lose social standing? Are you ready to be doxxed?  

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes.

One thing I started doing years ago as an exercise in detachment when I realized how truly tenuous my situation was, was to silently in my mind “take leave” of people, places and things every time left them, just in case it was the last time I ever saw them (or it). This conscious development of detachment has been a truly invaluable habit, as one church that I frequented has been physically lost, and I did, in fact, “take leave” of it the last time I saw it. I also do this with people, although never aloud, as to do it aloud might cause people needless worry. But when parting company with people, I think to myself, “On the off chance that this is the end and I never see you again in this world, goodbye.” This is detachment. A readiness to let go of earthly treasures and consolations, be they physical or human, in order to serve God. What the virtue of detachment does is make one impervious to coercion or threats, and more fully abandoned to the Divine Providence.

Our Lady knew from the very beginning that she would have to “let go” of Our Lord, even unto His death. And so she cherished every moment, but when it was time, and He said to her at the Wedding at Cana, “What is it to you and Me?” which signaled to her that if He provided wine for the wedding that it would be the end of their “quiet little life”, and the beginning of His ministry which would lead to His torture and death, she was able to give her affirmation because she was detached from the earthly, and desired only that the Will of the Father be done, no matter what that meant for her earthly life. Can you imagine the strength of character turning that page in her life took? The intense daily pleasure of sharing and keeping a home for Jesus Himself? If she can do that, I can, at the very least, be detached from my Donate button, much less my earthly reputation, and even perhaps my liberty eventually.

Direct application to the Bergoglian Antipapacy: If you are truly detached from wealth and earthly comforts, consolations and pleasures, and are willing at any time to lose it all for the love of God and His Holy Church, then standing up to the Bergoglian Antipapacy and its various and sundry henchmen, and speaking the truth, no matter how unpopular, is not only an irresistible duty, it’s an authentic, vivifying PLEASURE.

The Fourth Joyful Mystery: The Presentation of Jesus at the Temple
Fruit of the Mystery: Obedience, LOVE OF THE LAW

The Papacy is an irreversible, immutable JURIDICAL Office established by Christ Himself as a monarchy, and thus the Law, and the love of the Law is a critical concept with regards to the events of February of ARSH 2013.  The Divine Providence, which is always perfect, saw to it that the 1917 and then 1983 Code of Canon Law was promulgated.  Canon Law speaks specifically and directly to Papal resignation, and provides what can only be described as a miraculous coherence and integrity in the face of a set of circumstances that could not have been explicitly foreseen – the attempt by a reigning Pope to fundamentally transform the Papacy by attempting to “expand” the Papacy into a “collegial, synodal ministry” consisting of more than one man at a time, with a division of Petrine ministerial functions along the lines of “prayer and contemplation” vs. “active governance of the Church.”  

If the Law applied to God Almighty, who IS the existential source and foundation of the Law, such that He was circumcised at eight days of age, spilling His Most Precious Blood, AND to His Mother, conceived Immaculate, and EVER VIRGIN, such that she underwent the Rite of Purification forty days after Our Lord’s birth – even though she remained perfectly pure – then to argue that Canon Law DOES NOT apply to the Pope, even inasmuch as a given Canon is simply a refined recapitulation of either the Natural or Divine Law, is a species of idolatry.

But there is another set of laws that is under attack in this situation as well.  It is nothing less than an attack on REALITY ITSELF, specifically the law of THE LINEAR FLOW OF TIME.  In the created universe, all existence is in the PRESENT, the past is FIXED, and the future is unknown.  The PAST being FIXED and not changeable in retrospect provides EXISTENTIAL STABILITY – simply put, REALITY. Every man knows in his deepest being that events in the past are immutable, and thus the present itself – REALITY ITSELF – is reliable.    

To say that a given man is the Pope today and thus ontologically IS THE POPE TODAY, but could be at some point in the future declared to have been an antipope, and thus his ontological state is the PAST TIMELINE would “change”, for example, “Bergoglio ontologically IS the Pope in ARSH 2021, but in ARSH 2178 he could be declared an antipope, and thus reality in the past in that moment of declaration CHANGES THE PAST RETROACTIVELY,” is nothing less than a satanic attack on the very foundation of REALITY.

Reality is stable.  The past timeline cannot be “changed”, and ontological realities within the past timeline are fixed.  God, the author and sustainer of reality is Himself the Guarantor of the stability of the timeline so that human existence can move through time with an intrinsic integrity and confidence in the REALNESS of the REAL.

Human beings need not worry that the past will somehow be changed such that one might be snuffed out of existence – and then perhaps reconstituted in existence again.  We see this attack on the stability of the past timeline and REALITY in the realm of marriage – wherein the vast majority of Catholics today who have been handed a cookie-cutter “decree of nullity” firmly believe that they WERE married, but that the Church has decreed that the ontological reality of the marriage has been CHANGED.  “I WAS married, but the Church has declared that I no longer am.”

We further see this is the sickening evil of so-called “transgenderism”.  It is no longer Bruce Jenner who won the men’s decathlon in ARSH 1976.  As of ARSH 2014, the PAST TIMELINE, REALITY ITSELF, has been changed – CAITLYN JENNER now retroactively REPLACES the past.  It was “Caitlyn”, NOT Bruce, who not only won the gold medal, but EVER REALLY EXISTED.

Thus we see the argument that “The Pope is the Pope until the Pope says he isn’t the Pope”, or, “Bergoglio is the Pope today, although he COULD be declared an antipope in the future, and only then would he cease to be the Pope and be an Antipope.”  Thus, within the timeline, depending on one’s relative position, say ARSH 2021 versus ARSH 2178, Bergoglio could both BE AND NOT BE the Pope.  In ARSH 2021 he is, in ARSH 2178 he is not and never was.  Something can not both be and not be.  This is an full-frontal attack on the Law of Non-contradiction, and a satanic attack on all of humanity by throwing into doubt in the mind of men the most basic laws of the universe: the realness of reality, and the linear flow of time.  To attack something so fundamental as the reliability of linear time is the ultimate attempt at establishing a reign of total chaos.

Application to the Bergoglian Antipapacy: Look to the Law, and love it, even the laws of physics, for God’s Law sets us free.  God’s Law, including Canon Law, bring order and structure.  Discarding them yields chaos, and even sets up a paradigm of idolatry wherein the Papacy is in one breath declared meaningless, and in the next breath declared to override Natural, Divine, Canon and even the Laws of the physical universe.

The Fifth Joyful Mystery: Finding Jesus in the Temple
Fruit of the Mystery: Joy at Finding Jesus 

What did YOU find?

A social clique?  Amusing luncheons with a coterie of fops and dilettantes, and cocktail parties with “rich, powerful people”?  An entree into a social caste that you were not born into, and covet, or at least into a pool of fellow social climbers?  Tasteful art and architecture?  Somewhere that Latin is used?  Beautiful music?  A Disneyland/Narnia to live in?  A rich vein of donation revenue to tap, maybe even enough to live off of without working? 

Or did you find a Person, Divine, burning with infinite love for you and mankind, scourged, rejected, and crucified FOR YOUR SINS and the sins of the world, ready to forgive your every sin – if only you love Him, and thus sincerely repent.

Did you find a wildly corrupt and depraved institution – and nothing more, and thus without hope? Is the Pope your daddy who ran off?  Is Jesus your spouse or paramour who dumped you?  Is the communion of saints just a bunch perverts and grifters who were smart enough to fool everyone and never get caught? Are angels and demons as real as the characters in Star Wars – or just mis-identified space aliens?  Is the concept of “grace” as fictional as “The Force”?    

Or did you find Infinite Goodness, Graciousness, Holiness, Immutability, Impeccability, Charity, Omnipotence, Omniscience, Righteousness, Sovereignty, Veracity, Beauty, Mercy and Justice, Unity in Trinity, Incarnate, and Personal?  

Simply put, did you find Jesus?

Application to the Bergoglian Antipapacy:  Christ is Real, His Church is Real, and He Himself established the Papacy.  His promises are rock solid, and His Providence cannot be thwarted, nor His Holy Church destroyed.  If ANYTHING about the state of the Church or the Papacy seems to demand that EVEN ONE of the Divine attributes be denied, then there is a problem is with the base premise being false, NOT with God, not with His Church, not with His Vicariate, the Papacy, which He Himself established and protects.  

In this case, the false base premise which seems to deny many of the Divine Attributes is the identity of the Pope (wrongly assigned to Bergoglio), NOT the identity of Christ.

I hope this helps.

Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, Co-Redemptrix, pray for us.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and on Your One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, outside of which there is no salvation.

Top Question In My Email Box Answered: Ann, How Can You Still Be Catholic?

I would say it is the number one question flowing into my email box right now.  Traffic is WAY up.  There are scads of new readers, and lots of old readers who haven’t been around for a while, but are now checking back in. Most of the emails that come in asking me why I haven’t left the Church are not hateful per se.  They seem to be coming from a root of genuine concern, usually including something along the lines of, “You’re so intelligent, Ann.  Why can’t you see this? Why do you have this one huge blind spot?”

As previously discussed and warned about here, Trad Inc. partisans are now publicly professing and seeking to justify that which they have been discussing behind closed doors for many years: their own descent into apostasy. It’s one thing to apostatize, but to try to justify it and entice others into apostasy with you is the textbook definition of the grave sin of SCANDAL. It is also so quintessentially narcissistic that it almost appears to be parody at first glance. Would that it were parody. It isn’t.

I was asked specifically to respond to this, and am happy to do so. As St. Peter says, we must be ready at all times to explain why it is that we have hope.  I can think of no better time than now to make such explanation, precisely when it SEEMS that the situation is hopeless and that the sodomites have won not just a battle, but the entire war.

But sanctify the Lord Christ in your hearts, being ready always to satisfy every one that asketh you a reason of that hope which is in you.
Dominum autem Christum sanctificate in cordibus vestris, parati semper ad satisfactionem omni poscenti vos rationem de ea, quae in vobis est, spe.
1 Peter 3: 15

I am still Catholic because the Catholic Church is the One True Church founded by Jesus Christ in the Upper Room, built upon the rock of Peter, and outside of Her there is no salvation. The Catholic Church is the Mystical Body and Bride of Christ, and the Gates of Hell will never prevail against her.

Not good enough, Ann.  Sounds like robotic boilerplate.  Mere platitudes. We need more.

Fair enough. Everything that is happening now has been prophesied for at least a century.  The main vector of these warnings has been no less than The Mother of God Herself, appearing all over the planet, from Portugal to Japan to Ecuador.  In addition, Pope Leo XIII was given a vision of an exchange between satan and Our Lord Jesus Christ in which satan announced his plan to destroy the Church in one hundred years time. Satan was given the choice of which century he wanted, and he chose the 20th century.

Ann, you’re not helping yourself here.  How could a loving God give satan PERMISSION to try to destroy the Church? 

The same way that God the Father could permit His Son to be tortured and killed on the Cross – because from that horror – the single worst thing that ever has or will happen, the entire human race was redeemed.  In terms of what is happening today, the good that is coming out of the horror is that men – some men, but certainly not all – will be drawn much, much closer to Christ than they would have been had the times been “calm”.  For whatever reason, there are people alive, right now, today, that Christ wants to draw closer to His Sacred Heart, and He is willing to let this attack on the Church play out in order to achieve this goal.  If you are reading this right now, it is conceivably possible, if not probable, that YOU are one of those souls.

The key to all of this is Our Lord’s Agony in the Garden.  Note that it is called the AGONY, not “the disappointment” or “when Jesus went to the Garden, sat down and had the sadz for a couple of hours”. He was in AGONY.  He was in agony as He took upon Himself the sins of the world – ALL OF THEM.  Including all of the sodomy, all of the raping and assaulting of seminarians, all of the gay orgies by curial prelates, all of the sodomitical hook-ups in the sacristy of St. Peter’s Basilica, all of the raping of impoverished children by priests and bishops who cover for each other.  All of it.

Now let’s stop and think about this in human terms.  Let’s take as an example Luigi Capozzi, the priest who got caught several years ago having the cocaine-fuelled sodomite orgy (likely a satanic liturgy presided over by Capozzi’s mentor, Cardinal Coccopalmerio) in his apartment in the Holy Office building, just a few yards from St. Peter’s Basilica.

Capozzi with his patron and protector (and God knows what else), Cardinal Coccopalmerio

Luigi Capozzi has parents.  Grandparents. Probably siblings.  Probably friends back in his hometown.  These people were probably all proud of Capozzi, thinking that he was living and working inside the Vatican doing God’s work.  Now, put yourself in the place of Capozzi’s mother, father, sibling or friend.  Imagine the level of DISAPPOINTMENT, disappointment so intense that it can be called a species of agony, when they found out that this man whom they BELIEVED to be a good man and someone to be so very proud of, instead procures cocaine and other hard “party” drugs and procures rent boy prostitutes, and throws orgies for his fellow priests and bishops wherein acts of sodomy so vile that they make morally sane people physically ill to even contemplate are performed. Can you imagine being Capozzi’s father, knowing that your son is not just a sodomite, but a SACRILEGIOUS sodomite that sodomizes other men, including other clerics and prelates, INSIDE THE VATICAN? Can you imagine the feelings of complete and total failure as a man and as a father Capozzi’s father must feel?

A few short decades ago, Luigi Capozzi was his mother’s infant son, baptized, cleansed of Original Sin.  A perfect little person. Luigi Capozzi was just a few short decades ago his siblings’ playmate, playing kickball and riding bikes.  Up until last year, Capozzi’s family and friends probably thought that he was truly admirable – a priest and scholar that was “so good” that he was chosen to work in the Vatican itself!  How admirable! How proud they all must have been!

Until the moment they found out that he snorts cocaine and uses his own mouth and rectal vault, and the mouths and rectal vaults of other men, including other clerics and prelates, in order to achieve orgasms. And does this inside the Vatican. Loudly.

Most of you reading will never know disappointment this intense, but you can try to put yourself in the place of Capozzi’s family and friends and try to imagine.  Try to imagine the soul-crushing agony of, say, Capozzi’s mother.  It is possible that to Capozzi’s mother, Luigi Capozzi was the person she loved most in the world.  It is possible that her son was the person that she most admired and was the proudest of in her entire life.  To find out that it was all a lie, and that her beloved son was literally one of the most evil human beings alive, and that beautiful child that she loved so much had been totally subsumed and replaced by a sucking void of evil, and that the man she thought she knew as her son was really a false facade that he projected in order to conceal his monstrosity from her – agony is the only word that comes close.  Imagine finding out that the person you love the most in the world is actually a non-existent fiction.

Every time you read a story or even experience something like this in your own parish or diocese, when you feel that crushing disappointment, first put yourself in the place of these men’s parents, family and friends.  Allow yourself to engage that pain inasmuch as you can.

Then, and here’s the point, imagine Our Lord in the Garden.  Imagine what HIS AGONY must have been like, considering that He took upon Himself EVERY SIN EVER COMMITTED OR TO BE COMMITTED, and that He loves every human being, without exception, infinitely. Imagine His agony at the sins of these sodomite clerics and prelates like Capozzi, McCarrick, Wuerl, Coccopalmerio, Paglia, Martin and on and on and on….

Now, go ahead and ask Him why He has allowed you to be so hurt, so intensely disappointed by what is going on in the Church today.  The answer is simple: He wants YOU to experience and share in the smallest way His Agony and His Passion.  He wants you closer to Him.  He wants you to know and understand Him better, because only then can you love Him better.  He wants YOU to know and understand as much as you can exactly how much it is that He loves all of us, and how much He loves you personally, and right now the best way to do that is through His Agony.  Even in His infinite agony which we caused, Infinite Love prevailed unto the Pillar and the Cross by which all are redeemed and some are and will be saved.

Because remember, every sin is an infinite offense against God because He is Infinite Good.  That means you have caused Him infinite offense with every sin you have committed.  Yes, some infinities are larger than other infinities (this is a mathematical fact, not a silly turn of phrase), and so no, most of you have never had a gay orgy inside the Vatican or anything even close, but we have still, ALL OF US, committed infinite offenses against Him.

Consider the people who think that this is all no big deal – that this is what is needed to get the Church to “get with the times” and finally ratify sodomy as morally neutral if not a species of “good”.  Consider that vast majority of people walking around who apostatized long ago, or were never inside the Church in the first place.  Consider the people who in the coldness of their hearts walked away from Christ in the Garden, desiring instead to find a “c”hurch with no agony.  In truth, they simply decided to find a “c”hurch with no Christ. Consider the poverty – TRUE poverty – of such people. Pray that they choose to come back and accept the favor of entering into Christ’s agony.

Now consider how blessed you are to be able to sit here and KNOW beyond a shadow of a doubt that Christ has organized the Divine Providence such that you would be here, now in these days, with the information that you have, precisely so that you could go to Him in the Garden and weep with Him, perhaps for the first time in your life.  Consider that through your pain and disappointment, you can look at the most famous words in the entirety of scripture, and have an understanding of them that you might never have had if you had not been permitted to be so hurt by the Sodomite infiltrators of the Church:

For God so loved the world, as to give His only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in Him, may not perish, but may have life everlasting.

Leave the Church?  Why IN THE WORLD would I leave the Church? I’m not scandalized.  To be scandalized is to be incited by the sins of others to commit sin oneself, OR to be scandalized is to have one’s faith reduced or eliminated by the sins of others.  I am neither.  Not even slightly.

The pain and agony I feel because of sodomites in Rome – and believe me, the pain is deep and abiding although I mostly manifest righteous anger publicly – is a mark of favor from Our Lord Himself.  He wants me closer.  God Almighty wants me – ME – closer.  And he has chosen for me the surest and most efficacious way to draw closer to Him – to share in His agony. For me to reject such a favor, for me to reject such LOVE, is, in a word, unthinkable.  My faith is STRONGER than it was a few years ago, and we pray in the First Glorious Mystery of the Rosary, the Resurrection, for an increase in Faith every day.  Part of that Faith is the sure knowledge that Christ would never, ever allow something to happen to us or anyone else, that He wasn’t fully prepared to give us the strength to get through.  That strength – that ARMOUR if you will – is available to everyone, but all are free to either avail themselves of it, or reject it.  I choose to share in the Agony.  I choose Love. I choose to “grieve together with Him”.  I not only choose it, I thank God for the favor He has shown me in sharing in His agony every day.

In thy sight are all they that afflict Me; My Heart hath expected reproach and misery. And I looked for one that would grieve together with Me, but there was none: and for one that would comfort Me, and I found none.
Psalm 68: 21

I hope this helps.

St. Peter, pray for us.
St. Peter Damian, pray for us.
St. Joseph, pray for us.
Mary, Mother of the Church, pray for us.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us.

Christ’s Agony in the Garden, Duccio di Buoninsegna, ARSH 1308, Museum of the Duomo, Siena

St. Venantius: A fifteen year old kid who puts these disgraceful DeathVaxx EuroFrancisTrad Boomers to shame. No, Mr. de Mattei and Prof. Seifert, the human race doesn’t need a toxic cocktail of dead baby parts pushed by Malthusian Eugenicists so you don’t get a cold. If you’re genuinely scared, take Ivermectin.

Today is the feast of St. Venantius, truly a saint for our times. What an inspirational example of masculine virtue and love of Christ – by a fifteen year old kid, no less.

Here is the MILD version of his glorious martyrdom just from the Wiki page:

“Before Venantius was killed (by decapitation), he was scourged, burned with flaming torches, hanged upside-down over a fire, had his teeth knocked out and his jaw broken, thrown to the lions, and tossed over a high cliff.”

In other words, we all need to MAN UP.

Kinda makes publicly arguing that humanity needs to be coerced into an obviously toxic injection containing or tested on murdered infants under the false narrative that Boomers don’t catch the merely re-named flu or cold seem just slightly… deplorable by comparison, no?

As Michael Linden said so beautifully in his takedown of the de Mattei heresies, maybe, just maybe, if your choice in this world comes down to dying or getting a dead baby injection, the Divine Will is that you die. Ya think? How many excusal arguments could have been made, and almost certainly were made to St. Venantius to “justify” escaping his torture and death?

If Mr. de Mattei and Prof. Seifert have totally folded in the face of a treatable seasonal chest-crud virus with a 99.97% survival rate BEFORE Ivermectin, what do you imagine these men would do in the face of the kind of death that St. Venantius MANFULLY embraced?

I think the question answers, or perhaps better said, HAS ALREADY answered itself.

St. Venantius, pray for us.

Lord Jesus Christ, ascended to the Right Hand of the Father, have mercy on us and on your Holy Church.

**I use “Mr.” before Roberto de Mattei’s name because he only has a bachelors degree. While I despise credentialism, I also recognize the “stolen valor” dynamic of assuming academic honorifics without the actual degrees. I, personally, embrace my status as an “unlettered laynothing”. Gravitas and credibility do not require specious honorific titles.
