This is the priest who was tortured and spent over a year as a political prisoner in the dungeon-prisons of Burma. I had the opportunity to meet him very briefly many years ago before he was ordained.
Fr. Mawdsley had a null marriage in his youth. Which means he is heterosexual. I’m sorry that I have to point this out, but the fact is germane. If you’re sitting around waiting for same-sex attracted men to stand against the forces of evil… you’re out of your mind.
Fr. Mawdsley has been voluntarily suspended by the FSSP for refusing to capitulate to the Scamdemic edicts in Europe, and so that he can speak openly about Bergoglio and the Bergoglian attack on the Catholic Church and the Catholic Mass.
This video, it seems to me, is the pinnacle of sanity, right reason and manful virility. Fr. Mawdsley, having been tortured and imprisoned as a political dissident in Burma, has a level of credibility and gravitas that is not only absent in the post-Christian west, but is actively hated and despised by the effeminate men of the fallen west.
St. Philip Neri said, “Give me ten truly detached men, and I will convert the world with them.”
Fr. Mawdsley would be one of that “company of ten” that St. Philip was talking about.
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.
At the end of every Traditional Latin Mass (with just a few exceptions per year), the first fourteen verses of the Gospel of John are read. So yes, there are TWO Gospel readings per Mass: the variable Gospel in the liturgy of the Word, which changes every day, and John 1:1-14 at the very, very end of the Mass. The Johannine Gospel is referred to as “The Last Gospel”.
John 1:1-14 is, in my considered opinion, the single greatest and most beautiful bit of prose ever written. The Holy Spirit really pulled out all of the stops when He inspired John to pen these verses. It is simultaneously macho and elegant. Especially in Latin. It is just perfect. Here is the English:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was made nothing that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men: and the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness to give testimony of the light, that all men might believe through him. He was not the light, but was to give testimony of the light. That was the true light which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world.
He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him, to them He gave great power to become the sons of God: to them that believe in His name: who are born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
Perfect. So why did the Freemasonic -sodomite infiltrators remove the reading of the most beautiful bit of prose EVER from the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass when they maliciously concocted the Novus Ordo?
Short answer: Because they hate God.
Long answer: Because their satanic agenda, believe it or not, all turns on messing up the processions of the Trinity.
It’s actually quite simple. All of the Freemasonic-sodomite infiltrators are always going on and on about how giving people free stuff and letting people do whatever they want is the message of Christ and His Church, right? There is no sin, there is no hell, I’m okay – you’re okay, do what you want and give people free stuff because … wait for it … God is Love. And love means free stuff, never ever having to say you’re sorry, and, of course,?whatever sickening, perverted genital acts anyone wants.
The problem with this is that love PROCEEDS from logic and reason. Look at The Last Gospel. It’s right there in the very first verse. In the beginning was THE WORD. Verbum in Latin. Logos in the original Greek. Logos means logic and/or reason in the Greek. John identifies God NOT as “The Caritas” (Latin for love, which is the root of the word charity) or The Agape (Greek for the ultimate self-sacrificial love). John does not say, “In the beginning was the Love…” No, no. John identifies God as THE LOGOS. The Word. Logic and reason. Existential Reality.
Why? Because Divine Love proceeds out of the Logos. Yep. Logic/Reason/Reality comes first, then only proceeding out of Logic/Reason/Reality is Caritas, which is love. Logic/Reason/Reality is the Divine Base Premise. Charity/Love is the Divine Corollary.
What satan, through his Freemasonic-sodomite helpers, has done is to REVERSE the processions. The Freemasonic -sodomite infiltrators preach that the “love” comes first and that logic and reason are massively subordinated at best, or are the opposite and enemy of love at worst.
Kids, you mess up the processions of the Trinity and everything in your culture will fall apart POST HASTE. Just ask the Russians. And this is exactly what is happening to us since we have been overthrown by Freemasonic-Communists over the last 60+ years, now fully accomplished by the Washington Deep State regime, which is neo-Stalinist, and ever-more frequently openly manifesting its literal Satanism.
Think about it. The Freemasonic-Communist-sodogarchs say that they want to give everyone free stuff, and the people have a “right” to free stuff. But that clearly doesn’t jibe with reality. It is illogical and devoid of reason. Money has to come from somewhere. Physical commodities have to be produced and harvested at the expense of labor – MAN HOURS. Service commodities are a function of man hours and acquired human skill or talent. These things are not free, and do not exist in infinite quantities. A man can voluntarily choose to donate his labor, skill and time, but the donation, the charity, the LOVE therein MUST be preceded by the REALITY of the thing itself.
Let’s just give everyone on earth a trillion dollars and call it good. Wouldn’t that be *nice*? If we really loved our neighbor we would just give him a trillion bucks, right?
Um, yeah, except that would instantaneously collapse the currency and economy. Math will not permit such irrational insanity, and since math, as a subset of the Logos, precedes caritas, or love, we can’t mandate that people be given free stuff. People can only be given free stuff in any sustainable way by other individuals acting from purely voluntary charity, not coercion. This is why MATH WINS, and why miracles like the multiplication of the loaves and fishes are exactly that – MIRACLES, not economic theories.
Oh, and with respects to sodomy, two men jamming things into each other’s feces-laden posterior fundaments or two women abusing one another is irrational. Like it or not, sex has to make anatomical sense and be ordered toward reproduction. Sodomy in ANY form, by definition, does neither. Sodomy is violently, hatefully irrational and DISordered. And, nipping the screeching in the bud, sex between man and wife that is naturally infertile due to either a natural condition in a young woman, or due to the infertility of age in an older woman is 100% ratified by God in the miraculous births of Isaac and John the Baptist. Sodomy is irrational, intrinsically hateful and physically violent and is in direct opposition to the existential reality of human anatomy. Period. It can never, ever proceed from love under any circumstance. To engage in sodomy, the pervert must either hate or be pathologically indifferent to both him/herself AND the other person. And remember, it is indifference, not hatred, that is the pure opposite, the complete inversion of love.
This is why the Freemasonic -sodomite infiltrators removed the proclamation of The Last Gospel from the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, because it shoots down their Marxist rabble-rousing agitprop revolving around “free stuff” and the Sodomites’ addiction to perverted genital acts.
Oh, and none of this has been taught in seminaries for over 60 years now. Your priest, bishop and the vast, vast majority of the Cardinals gathered in Rome know NOTHING about what an ex-cattle broker girl from Denver with an Amazon Prime membership just explained to you; never mind Superfun Rockband Church Pastor Jeremy. And if they do know the truth, they hate it and want it totally exterminated from the earth… and they’ve gotten damn close.
And so, the answer to the title question of this post, ‘Which comes first: Logic or Love?’ is:
In principio erat Verbum ….
I hope this helps.
Here is a nice recitation of the Last Gospel in Latin. I strongly recommend memorizing it, and silently reciting it in union with the priest at Mass. I can’t help but suspect that Our Lord loves to hear us say these words, particularly when He is reposed just beside our heart after we receive Him in Sacramental Communion – hearing us “from the inside”, as we whisper this most perfect prosaic proclamation of His very essence back to Him.
I pray that I will have enough time and cognizance for “God” or “Jesus” to be the last word I utter.
Think today, and every day, about the last word YOU will utter aloud.
After every Sacramental Communion you make with Our Lord, think in full consciousness back in the pew (or at the altar if you are a priest) that it might be your Viaticum, and ask for those graces accordingly… just in case.
Take leave silently, to yourself, of people and places you love EVERY time you leave them, not being macabre, but being detached, and ready to die in gratitude and joy, according to the Divine Providence.
Let Kevin Cosgrove’s wail cry out to us twenty-one years later and let the horror incite us to enter, live and remain in Sacramental Grace, and let our “Oh God!” in our moment of death be not a terrorized scream, but a recollected, loving whisper to the Triune God who loved us infinitely first, no matter the circumstance.
Nativity of the Blessed Virgin, Giotto, Scrovegni Chapel, Padua, ARSH 1305
This is the explanatory preamble from my missal for today’s feast, the Nativity (birth) of the Blessed Virgin Mary (nine months to the day after the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, naturally). I thought it quite beautiful and timely, for those of us feeling the weight of the darkness of these days:
At the time of Mary’s birth the whole world was plunged in darkness. The heathen nations were steeped in vice and pride. The Jews, beloved of God, had strayed from Him. Everywhere there was sin and gloom, no bright spot on the face of the earth. But when Mary was born a light arose amidst the darkness: the dawn of the glorious day that was to usher in the Redeemer.
Who knows what foundations and groundworks He has laid on the earth and in our lives, already extant or partially so, just waiting to be completed and realized in the fullness of time according to His will?
I take Ivermectin prophylactically on the 1st and 2nd, and 15th and 16th of the month, AND if I feel the first hint of a bug (Susan was naughty for waiting as long as she did – take Ivermectin at the first tickle; it can’t hurt, and it’s cheap, so there is no reason to delay) OR have been around anyone with a bug. I carry it in my purse at all times in an unmarked 50ml dropper bottle to give away to anyone who needs it. The stuff isn’t merely a broad-spectrum antiviral, but also an anti-inflammatory and there is all kinds of evidence rolling in that it is an anti-tumoric. Yes, as in ANTI-CANCER. It’s clearer every day why BigPharma and the Malthusians went to war against Ivermectin. Ivermectin actually helps people to be healthy, safely and inexpensively – and they want everyone sick and dead, consuming their satanically-expensive and now often CANNIBALISTIC poisons. It’s that simple, and that evil.

(Originally penned and posted on July 17, ARSH 2014. Jamie Dimon of J.P. Morgan infamy had just announced that he had throat cancer. Apparently he received chemotherapy and yet lives. This is the essay I referenced in Barnhardt Podcast #178, specifically the execution of the Nazi Hans Frank, who apparently died on the gallows shriven, and reconciled to Jesus Christ. -AB ’22
Um, yeah, so why EXACTLY did I have a Mass said for Jamie Dimon yesterday again?? Seems odd, no? There are multiple reasons:
a.) To pray for the salvation of his soul that he might not spend all of eternity burning in the deepest darkest corner of hell.
b.) To pray that he might be cured of his throat cancer, because if he dies of throat cancer anytime soon, he will not be able to be arrested, tried and executed for his crimes against humanity, and that would be a terrible deprivation, both to Dimon and to society in general.
c.) Because praying for the salvation and achievement of the Beatific Vision for one’s enemies is extremely constructive and good.
Justice is simply the social good, and it must therefore be done. It is defined as “giving each his due” – cuique suum, “to each his own.” A man is due his life because he is a living thing; it is his nature to have life; and, since it is also his nature to be moral, if a man commits a crime, he must be punished because punishment is retributive – punishment is the penalty due the criminal in justice to him. Proportioned punishment is due him, too, and you cannot deny him that right without yourself committing an injustice against him deserving punishment in turn. The judge who fails the criminal in punishment himself incurs a greater guilt.
-Dr. John Senior from his book, “The Death of Christian Culture”
Depriving criminals of the punishment justly due to them is NOT NOT NOT merciful, nor is it in any way CHARITABLE. It is, as Dr. Senior rightly pointed out, depriving him of his real, fundamental right to justice, which is another crime. If Jamie Dimon, Jon Corzine, Lloyd Blankfien, Mario Draghi, Christine Lagarde and the numerous other people who have committed crimes against humanity purely within the financial realm are not tried, and upon being found guilty, executed – because the punishment MUST be proportional, and these people have, without question, committed capital offenses – the odds of them ever repenting, being baptized (in the case of the Jews among them and unbaptized Gentiles) and thus attaining the Beatific Vision is massively, massively reduced. History proves and common sense dictates that being faced with one’s own execution has a way of … bringing moral clarity to the condemned man, a clarity that dying peacefully, hopped-up on painkillers in one’s twenty million dollar Long Island or French Riviera compound simply will not provide.
Remember how Nazi Hans Frank reverted to the Church after having apostatized while awaiting his execution, received the sacraments, and by all accounts died well and with humble dignity on the gallows with his last words being,’I am thankful for the kind treatment during my captivity and I ask God to accept me with mercy.’ If Hans Frank had never faced justice and the hangman, a death he so richly deserved, the odds of his reversion would have been infinitesimal.
Here is a short clip of the execution procession of a Nazi. Nothing gory is shown.
Note the the priest is in full choir dress and wearing the biretta (the liturgical hat). Birettas are NOT worn outside of liturgical functions. You NEVER see clerics or seminarians casually walking down the street in Rome wearing a biretta – only if they were walking in a formal liturgical procession would the biretta be worn outdoors. This shows that the Church considers the procession of the condemned to be a liturgical function requiring choir dress and the biretta, not a casual “accompaniment”. So how, exactly, can what Holy Mother Church considers LITURGICAL be “immoral” or “inadmissible”?
The OBVIOUS answer is because this heretical nonsense about the abolition of the death penalty has NO RELATION to Jesus Christ and His Holy Church. This is the sulphuric farting of Antipope Jorge Bergoglio, the probable False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist, and the Luciferian Antichurch occupying the Vatican of which he is the puppet front.
No, I had Mass offered for Jamie Dimon precisely because I fear that either the throat cancer OR our thoroughly wicked and cowardly culture will deprive him of the trial and execution to which he has an inalienable, Divinely ordained right, and may be his only hope for conversion, repentance and salvation.
I also know that to deprive Dimon of his just punishment will also edify others like him to commit other and larger crimes against humanity, and thus the deprivation of justice to Dimon is an act of violence against the totality of mankind.
