If 6 million is “the single worst thing to ever happen ever”, then what the hell do we call THIS? LOWBALL estimates have the DeathJab kill at 17million+. That’s THREE “worst thing evers”, and we’re just getting started…

Evil is stupid, totally lacking in self-awareness, and ALWAYS overplays its hand….

Two DOZEN?? How subtle. No one will suspect a thing. But then… the culture is so far gone that subtlety is no longer needed. Hasn’t been for quite a while, now that I think of it.

Welp, in the end, O.J. was killed by the government via lethal injection. Too bad it didn’t happen in ARSH 1996 or so, as it should have.

Speaking of Eclipses: On Eclipse, Visibility and Clarity

(Originally penned and posted in June, ARSH 2019.)

Several months ago, during my post-Mass prayer litany, I realized that I was incorrect in one of my daily petitions. See if you can tell how my prayer was wrong:

“May the Church Militant remain visible, and may I always be within easy walking distance of daily Mass in the Tridentine Rite.”

So there I am, having said this prayer daily over a thousand times, and I had a total record-scratch moment.

May the Church Militant REMAIN VISIBLE? Visibility is an intrinsic constitutive quality of the Church. The Church’s visibility is guaranteed in much the same way that water is wet and time is linear. The Church will always be visible – period. That is 100% guaranteed by God Himself. The issue is, can I, can we SEE IT.

Even if one uses the imagery of “eclipse” to describe current events, remember that eclipses are, by definition, highly visible events – awesome and fearful even.

So, my petition was so very wrong in that it falsely assumed that the Church could ever be “invisible”.

Now, my corrected petition is, “May I always be able to clearly see and recognize the Church…”

We know that the Antichurch will be -really, IS BEING- built as an ape of the True Church, and that many, if not most people, including many of the Elect will happily traipse into the Antichurch and be lost. It will be so bad that Our Lord said, “But yet the Son of man, when He cometh, shall He find, think you, faith on earth?”

The problem will not be any failure of the Church to remain visible. The failure will not be God’s, the Church’s, nor even will the failure be a failure of the Papacy in se. The failure will be OURS. The Church will always be lit up like the Las Vegas Strip. But if Ray Charles is standing there, blind as a bat and can’t see what is right in front of him, does that mean the Vegas Strip is invisible? Of course not. All it means is that Ray is BLIND.

Every one of us can look back at our lives and cite numerous examples of our own blindness that caused us to go astray, which in retrospect were glaringly obvious at the time. Common examples:

“I was so in love….”

“I really wanted to keep that job/income…”

“I loved hanging out with those people…”

“I knew I couldn’t afford it, but I bought it anyway…”

“It felt right at the time…”

“I didn’t want to admit I was wrong…”

“I told myself that the person/situation would change/improve…”

“People warned me, but I didn’t listen…”

“I believed what the people on tee vee and on the internet were saying…”

Folks, the Truth is objective, external to us, and knowable. Reality is real, and visible. The Church is real, and it is guaranteed to always be visible, including AT ITS EARTHLY HEAD.

Start from the true base premise that the Church is visible, and the identity of the Pope is clear and visible, and then work from that. What is the objective reality? What is the objective dataset? What is clearly visible? What errors or prejudices or vices might cloud my vision and make me blind? Are my FEELINGS overriding logic? Is my approach rooted in sentiment and not in rationality?

I hope this helps.

Let us pray, as you did at the end of your letter, that the Lord comes to the rescue of His Church. I bless with MY apostolic blessing,

Yours,

Benedict XVI”

Don’t be squeamish, Thomas. Don’t be squeamish (insert your name here).

(Fun festive fact: I was received into the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church seventeen years ago tonight, at the Easter Vigil Mass of ARSH 2007. I knew entering the One True Church would be an adventure, but I had absolutely no idea what an incredible outpouring of grace and favor Our Lord had in store for me. If you had described even 10% of it to me, I would have laughed you out the door. And the adventure is still ongoing. As I have said before, I strongly suspect that I enjoy one of the highest true qualities of life of anyone alive – with a near-zero net worth. In retrospect, being successful was fun; being wealthy was kinda awful. I thank God all day every day for extracting me from “the world”, for all of you- my benefactors and supporters, and for placing me here, now, able to fight in this war against the Antipope, the Antichurch, and all enemies, human and demonic, of Our Lord. Remember Thucydides: “The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding go out to meet it.” —Alpha Bravo ’24)

John 20: 19-31

At that time, when it was late that same day, the first of the week, and the doors were shut, where the disciples were gathered together for fear of the Jews, Jesus came, and stood in the midst and said to them: Peace be to you. And when He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. The disciples therefore were glad, when they saw the Lord. He said therefore to them again: Peace be to you. As the Father hath sent Me, I also send you. When He had said this, He breathed on them, and He said to them: Receive ye the Holy Ghost: whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained. Now Thomas, one of the Twelve, who is called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said to him: We have seen the Lord. But he said to them: Except I shall see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe. And after eight days, again His disciples were within, and Thomas with them. Jesus cometh, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said: Peace be to you. Then He saith to Thomas: Put in thy finger hither, and see My hands, and bring hither thy hand, and put into My side; and be not faithless, but believing. Thomas answered and said to Him: my Lord and my God. Jesus saith to him: Because thou hast seen Me, Thomas, thou hast believed; blessed are they that have not seen, and have believed. Many other signs also did Jesus in the sight of His disciples, which are not written in this book. But these are written, that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that, believing, you may have life in His Name.

Here’s an amazing tidbit from Fr. Z. In the original Greek, the word for “hand” actually sometimes refers to the hand plus the wrist plus the lower forearm. In Ancient Greek, when you are speaking of just the hand proper, additional words can be added to make that precision. Given this, the reality of what exactly happened to St. Thomas might be far, far more intense that what we imagine.

Our Lord has breathed upon the other ten Apostles, minus the absent Thomas, thus imparting the Holy Ghost upon them, and giving them all the power of binding and loosing, thus instituting the Sacrament of Confession. Then, Our Lord appears to them again on the eighth day, and Thomas arrives, and puts his fingers into the finger-sized nail holes in Our Lord’s hands. Then he puts what the Greek indicates is his entire hand, wrist and lower forearm all the way into the lance wound made by Longinus in Our Lord’s thoracic cavity, at Our Lord’s command.

It is conceivably possible that Our Lord breathed the Holy Ghost upon Thomas WHILE THOMAS WAS HOLDING OUR LORD’S LUNG IN HIS HAND, and that Thomas literally touched Our Lord’s BEATING SACRED HEART, and PALPATED THE STAB WOUND in Our Lord’s Sacred Heart.

Now, consider being Thomas and doing this, but also consider being one of the other Apostles standing there watching this happen, watching Thomas stick his hand and forearm into Our Lord’s side.

And if you’re thinking to yourself, “That isn’t possible…”, well, neither is walking through walls. The resurrected body of Our Lord is in an entirely different category. It isn’t held to the laws of the physical universe that bind us as we await our resurrection that He purchased for us.

People wonder why and how the Apostles were able to do what they did, and all but John were killed for the faith, and John was miraculously prevented from being killed, despite multiple efforts. Well, I reckon if we saw one of our friends stick his hand into Our Lord’s thoracic cavity up to the forearm, hold His breathing lung, and touch His Sacred Heart, we might be… confirmed and quickened, to put it mildly.

St. Thomas, pray for us.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us, on the Petrine See, vacant these 463 days, and on Your Holy Catholic Church, outside of which there is no salvation.
