I don’t want to panic anyone or cause a kerfuffle… but I bought a tulle-crinoline petticoat situation for under my 1951 dresses…

And yes, it’s everything. So comfortable, flattering and beautiful. I got it from eShakti. Just do a search for “tulle skirt”.

Red polka dot A-line dress, light beige tulle crinoline petticoat, flowered two-tone straw sun hat, red espadrilles, white viscose gloves.

Every day, folks. EVERY. DAY.

Folks, if this isn’t the disastrous intersection of American apocalyptic religious fervor, narcissistic grrrlboss “yaas queen” too-good-for-a-man, and the Traditional Catholic Faith, I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS.

Ladies, you can do it!

Drink in the deep wisdom of St. Jane Frances de Chantal, spiritual daughter of St. Francis de Sales

In prayer one must hold fast and never let go, because the one who gives up loses all. If it seems that no one is listening to you, then cry out even louder. If you are driven out of one door, go back in by the other.

Cordial love of the neighbor does not consist in feelings. This love flows not from a heart of flesh but from the heart of our will.

Hell is full of the talented, but Heaven of the energetic.

When shall it be that we shall taste the sweetness of the Divine Will in all that happens to us, considering in everything only His good pleasure, by whom it is certain that adversity is sent with as much love as prosperity, and as much for our good? When shall we cast ourselves undeservedly into the arms of our most loving Father in Heaven, leaving to Him the care of ourselves and of our affairs, and reserving only the desire of pleasing Him, and of serving Him well in all that we can?

An evil discovered is half healed.

May our hearts be enlarged with compassionate loving support of our neighbor! Let us always be ready to serve, assist, console, support, and comfort others as much as possible in a spirit of joy and cordiality. An open heart is a heart disposed to help the neighbor at all times. Such a heart loves the will of God above all things.

Why imperil your doctor by insisting upon “humanprescription pill form, exposing him to Coviet attack, when you can buy exactly the same thing at the farm supply store? At this point, it’s a question of fraternal Charity to keep doctors totally out of it. -AB)

Fascinating letter over the transom about Elvis Presley… and the SSPX

Ann,

I am a regular reader. Your Ivermectin posts helped to save my family.

Regarding your comment on Elvis Presley, you might be interested in knowing that when Elvis was stationed in Germany, one of his fellow soldiers was Hector Bolduc–later to become Father Bolduc. They were friends.

I never met Father Bolduc, but my understanding is that after Elvis returned from Germany, and Hector Bolduc was ordained a priest, that Elvis made a donation which resulted in Elvis Presley being remembered in the daily Mass in perpetuity. They pray for all benefactors. I do not know if Elvis had donated to the SSPX, or possibly to the Marian Fathers in Stockbridge, MA. I think it was the SSPX.

Father Bolduc was ordained by Archbishop Lefebvre and he remained a priest who prayed the Tridentine Mass.

One never knows about God’s Providence. Elvis has Masses said for his soul every day. Whodda Thunk?

https://www.legacy.com/us/obituaries/greenbaypressgazette/name/hector-bolduc-obituary?id=10383766

Fr. Bolduc was a veteran of the US Army serving in the European Theatre.

Requiescat in Pace, Father Bolduc.

Requiescat in Pace, Archbishop Lefebvre.

Continued prayers and Masses for Elvis Presley’s soul.

Keep up your great work, Ann.

Yours in Christ,

St. John Eudes, who smacks down Narcissists and their effeminate, pride-soaked bleatings of “I dindunuffin!” It is NOT Our Redeemer’s fault if we are lost. It is ours.

Eudes_Two_Hearts

St. John Eudes will always be a favorite because he has one of the most informative and explicatory quotes about what is happening to us, the Church and the world.  He simply and directly answers the question, “My God, why is this happening?”:

“The most evident mark of God’s anger, and the most terrible castigation He can inflict upon the world, is manifest when He permits His people to fall into the hands of a clergy who are more in name than in deed, priests who practice the cruelty of ravening wolves rather than the charity and affection of devoted shepherds. They abandon the things of God to devote themselves to the things of the world and, in their saintly calling of holiness, they spend their time in profane and worldly pursuits. When God permits such things, it is a very positive proof that He is thoroughly angry with His people and is visiting His most dreadful wrath upon them. 
–Saint John Eudes 

Only truly malignant and totally blind narcissists could possibly claim that “I dindu nuffin to deserve this!” Oh, every one of us is guilty to one degree or another. Remember the ways that one can be complicit in sin:

1. By counsel (to give advice, one’s opinion or instructions.)

2. By command (to demand, to order, such as in the military.)

3. By consent (to give permission, to approve, to agree to.)

4. By provocation (to dare.)

5. By praise or flattery (to cheer, to applaud, to commend.)

6. By concealment (to hide the action, to cover-up.)

7. By partaking (to take part, to participate.)

8. By silence (by playing dumb, by remaining quiet.)

9. By defense of the ill done (to justify, to argue in favour.)

(Note: To participate in the sins of another person means that one is just as guilty of the sin as the one who committed them. For example, if you encourage someone to have an abortion, you are guilty of the sin of abortion.)

Always beware the man who refuses to say those three little words: mea maxima culpa. Beware the man who declares that Jesus Christ and His Holy Catholic Church aren’t worthy of his presence, thus inverting the Domine non sum dignus into “Lord, You are not worthy to enter under my roof…” Talk about total, satanic inversion….

Here is another quote from St. John Eudes on the effect of our sins on Our Lord’s Sacred Heart.  Read it well.

The first cause of those most painful Wounds in the Sacred Heart of Our Redeemer is our sins. We read in the life of Saint Catherine of Genoa that one day God let her see the horror of one tiny venial sin. She assures us that, although this vision lasted but a moment, she saw nevertheless an object so frightening that the blood froze in her veins and she swooned away in an agony that would have killed her if God had not preserved her to relate to others what she had seen. Wherefore she declared that if she were in the very depths of a sea of flaming fire and it were in her power to be set free, on condition that she should once more behold such a spectacle, she would choose to remain rather than to escape. If the sight of the smallest venial sin brought this saint to such a pass, what must we think of the state to which Our Saviour was reduced by seeing all the sins of the universe? He had them continually before His Eyes, and His vision being infinitely more powerful than that of Saint Catherine, He could behold infinitely more horror.

He saw the immeasurable insult and dishonour it caused His Father; He saw the damnation of a countless number of souls resulting from those sins. As He had infinite love for His Father and His creatures, the sight of all those sins rent His Heart with countless Wounds, such that if we were able to count all the sins of men, which are more numerous than the drops of water in the sea, we would then be able to count the Wounds of the loving Heart of Jesus.

The second cause of His Wounds is the infinite love of His Sacred Heart for all of His children, and His constant vision of all the afflictions and sufferings that are to happen to them, especially all the torments that His holy martyrs are to suffer. When a mother watches her beloved child suffering, she feels the pain more keenly than the child. Our Saviour’s love for us is so tremendous that if the love of all parents were centred in a single heart, it would not represent even a spark of the love for us that burns in His Heart. Our pains and sorrows, ever present to His vision and seen most clearly and distinctly, were so many Wounds bleeding in His paternal Heart. These Wounds were so painful and deep that they would have caused His death a thousand times over, even immediately after His birth, if He had not miraculously preserved Himself, because during His whole earthly life His Sacred Heart was continually pierced by many mortal Wounds of love.

Therefore we have the greatest obligation to honour the gracious Heart that sustained so many Wounds of love for us. With what affection should we embrace, and endure all our afflictions, out of love for Jesus, our Saviour, since He first bore them for love of us! Should they not be most sweet to us, since they have already passed through His most gentle and loving Heart? What a horror we should have of our sins that have caused so many Wounds and such intense grief to the divine Heart of our Redeemer!

Let us learn from the foregoing example that it is not our Redeemer’s fault if we are lost. There are hearts so hard that, even if Jesus Himself were to come down from heaven to preach to them and they were to see Him covered with Wounds and bathed in His Blood, they would still not be converted.

O my God, let us not be one of them, but give us the grace to open our ears to the voice of all the sacred Wounds of Your Body and Your Heart, which are so many mouths through which You call us unceasingly: ‘Redite, prævaricatores, ad cor — Return, transgressors, to the heart’, which means to My Heart that is all yours, since I have given it entirely to you. Return to that most loving Heart of your Father, which is full of love and mercy for you, which will receive you home, heaping upon you blessings.

Barnhardt Podcast #177: Sigmas of Unusual Size

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode we discuss standard deviations of non-standard deviance, that it’s increasing in modern society and dovetails with the topic of “generational spirits,” and how this will all be resolved (war, supernatural interventions, or both?). Despite the trajectory of the world there is always cause for counter-cultural optimism: Grace abounds in spite of the rise of evil. Even if the world is tending toward human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, and mass hysteria, it’s a prime time to become a great Saint!

St. Dominic called it. I think we’re getting ready to see it happen – hence the Sodo-Masonic declaration of war against the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

You know who else hates the Rosary? Antipope Bergoglio. He publicly mocked a group of faithful who sent him a Spiritual Bouquet of several thousand Rosaries prayed for him shortly after his usurpation of the Petrine See and occupation of the Vatican.

It’s all happening, folks! Stay confessed, and be of good cheer!

“One day, through the Rosary and the Scapular, Our Lady will save the world.”

-St. Dominic

Dávila!

Nicolás Gómez Dávila was a Colombian man who casually wrote down his thoughts, which were later discovered and published by admirers.  His Wiki article begins thusly:

Nicolás Gómez Dávila (18 May 1913 – 17 May 1994) was a Colombian writer and thinker who is considered one of the most intransigent political theoreticians of the twentieth century. His fame began to spread only in the last few years before his death, particularly by way of German translations of his works. Gómez Dávila was one of the most radical critics of modernity whose work consists almost entirely of aphorisms which he called “escolios” (that is, “glosses” or “annotations”).

Other sources describe him as a Radical Traditionalist.  Sigh.  A man after our own hearts, I daresay.

For the edification of all, a few quotes:

The criterion of “progress” between two cultures or two eras consists of a greater capacity to kill.

The word “modern” no longer has an automatic prestige except among fools.

One of my personal favorites…:

Clarity of text is the sole incontrovertible sign of the maturity of an idea.

From strength to strength…

To tolerate does not mean to forget that what we tolerate does not deserve anything more.

The left claims that the guilty party in a conflict is not the one who covets another’s goods but the one who defends his own.

Hierarchies are celestial. In hell all are equal.

Modern man is a prisoner who thinks he is free because he refrains from touching the walls of his dungeon.

And finally….

The modern world demands that we approve what it should not even dare ask us to tolerate.

RIP E.A. Presley – Edifying Spiritual: Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho

Elvis. Faced his Particular Judgment 45 years ago today. SO tragic. I think of Elvis and mourn when I contemplate Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus. Elvis was baptized, but never had the Sacraments or the Rosary. And he lived and died like it, too. It was the dirty lie of “cheap grace” that allowed him to think that he could indulge his passions without consequence – because he was baptized and sang spirituals every night.

Our Blessed Lord says, “If you love Me, keep My Commandments.”
Si diligitis me, mandata mea servate.

He gathered his back-up singers, all gospel singers, male and female, and made them stay up and sing Southern Spirituals all night after their stage shows. He had no interest in singing anything recreationally other than spirituals.

But as John 14: 15 makes crystal clear, that’s not even remotely enough.

Elvis is yet another example of a man who should have been evangelized by the Holy Catholic Church – but the “laborers were few”, as Our Lord put it. Understatement of the day, right there.

I listened to Elvis’ spiritual oeuvre non-stop growing up. One of my absolute favorites, which has SO much more immediate meaning now is “Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho”.

When do we march on the occupied Vatican? Anybody got a Ramshorn?

Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
Jericho Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls come tumbling down

God knows that
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
Jericho Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls come tumbling down

Good morning sister Mary
Good morning brother John
Well I wanna stop and talk with you
Wanna tell you how I come along

I know you’ve heard about Joshua
He was the son of Nun
He never stopped his work until
Until the work was done

God knows that
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
Jericho Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls come tumbling down

You may talk about your men of Gideon
You may brag about your men of Saul
There’s none like good old Joshua
At the battle of Jericho

Up to the walls of Jericho
He marched with spear in hand
“Go blow them ram horns,” Joshua cried
“Cause the battle is in my hand”

God knows that
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
Jericho Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls come tumbling down

You may talk about your men of Gideon
You may brag about your king of Saul
There none like Joshua
At the battle of Jericho

They tell me, great God that Joshua’s spear
Was well nigh twelve feet long
And upon his hip was a double edged sword
And his mouth was a gospel horn

Yet bold and brave he stood
Salvation in his hand
“Go blow them ram horns,” Joshua cried
“Cause the devil can’t do you no harm”

Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
Jericho Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls come tumbling down

Up to the walls of Jericho
He marched with spear in hand
“Go blow them ram horns,” Joshua cried
“Cause the battle is in my hand”

Then the lamb ram sheep horns began to blow
The trumpets began to sound
Old Joshua shouted “Glory!”
And the walls came tumblin’ down

God knows that
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
Jericho Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls come tumbling down

Down, down, down, down, down
Tumblin’ down

Perhaps the “coolest” Barnhardt essay ever: The SCIENCE of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into heaven.

Originally penned and posted on August 15, ARSH 2011. Call me faithless, but I take PROFOUND joy in every scientific discovery that confirms Dogma. This HAS to be at the tippy-top. There is new data demonstrating that sub-atomic particles eventually break down into a wave form (like light), without any actual mass, which would very clearly point toward the “transformation of substance” of the Eucharist. I’ll write that up if there is further confirmation. For now, enjoy contemplating the mind-blowing reality of the science of the Assumption, a Feast so high that entire swaths of the post-Christian west in the Old World still shut down every August 15th. Her Assumption is our promise, and the science behind it should bring every mother – including every woman who murdered a child in utero – to her knees in awesome fear and trembling. —-AB ’22)


“The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary” is the infallibly defined Dogma that the Blessed Virgin Mary was assumed BODY and SOUL into heaven at the end of her life. The archaeological record is one of the most compelling confirmations of this truth. The veneration of burial places, tombs and relics of dead saints is universal and consistent in the early Church and has carried right through to this day. Everyone knows where St. Peter is buried, and the relics of St. Paul and the other apostles and saints, even recent saints like St. Bernadette are venerated and in some cases spread all over the earth. Almost every Catholic Church contains the relics of multiple saints.

But one saint has NEVER had any location venerated as her permanent, occupied burial place, nor have there ever been any relics purported to be part of her body. Never. Who is this non-divine human being whom everyone has always agreed has no occupied earthly tomb and for whom there are no earthly relics? Only the second-most-important person to ever walk the earth, and THE most important person who was NOT God Incarnate: The Blessed Virgin Mary.

The reason why she has no occupied tomb and no relics is because at the end of her life (the Church is not completely sure whether or not she actually died, and so that question is intentionally left open) Our Lord immediately granted to her the promise made to all Christians of the resurrection and heaven, BODY AND SOUL. So, there are exactly two physical human bodies locally present in heaven right now: Our Lord and His Mother. We don’t know exactly how to explain this, but I suspect that it has something to do with quantum or dimensional phase shifting, as Our Lord walked through walls, doors and other solid objects after the Resurrection (John 20:19). As Einstein discovered, mass and energy are equivalent, and thus can phase back and forth. We also know from the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass itself, which is a bending of time such that the moment of Calvary touches today, that while we experience time in a linear continuum, God is in no way constrained by linear time, and can manipulate, bend and intersect points in time. How? Oh, no clue. There is so much about physics that we don’t understand. But hey, that’s all part of the fun of the Mystery, right?

Only after the Second Coming and the Judgment will the rest of the Church be reunited to their resurrected (for those who have died) or glorified (for those who are alive at the Second Coming and Judgment) bodies, to be united to the Trinity, dwelling inside the Beatific Vision forever. But Mary is already there. She has already been ASSUMED into heaven, and is the proof of God’s promise of what lies in store for those who die in the Church, in friendship with Christ. And today, August 15th, is the Feast of the Assumption. This is a Holy Day of Obligation, which means that all Christians are required to attend Mass just as if it were a Sunday (although this year, in ARSH 2021 it is a Sunday.) So, what better time to talk about and explain the doctrines of the Immaculate Conception (the feast of which is December 8th, also a Holy Day of Obligation – you MUST go to Mass that day as if it were a Sunday) and the Assumption, and the amazing science that underpins both dogmas.

First, the Immaculate Conception. This doctrine and non-negotiable tenet of Christianity teaches that Mary was, by the grace of God, prevented from carrying the stain of Original Sin from the moment of her conception. To deny this is a deal-breaker. The logical consequences of denying the Immaculate Conception inevitably lead to denying the Incarnation and Divinity of Jesus Christ Himself. The Blessed Virgin cleared all of this up herself when she appeared to Bernadette Soubirous at Lourdes, France and told her in no uncertain terms and in St. Bernadette’s local micro-dialect of the Occitan language, “Qué soï era Immaculado Councepcioũ.”  Case closed.  All that remained was for science to progress sufficiently to confirm this – and that has now happened.  More on that in a second.

Mary was saved from Original Sin by her Son, saved by Him like all of the other faithful, it is just that the timing of her salvation was different from everyone else. This is why Mary, sinless though she is, still calls God “my Savior” in her Magnificat in Luke 1:46-55. Instead of letting Mary fall in the mud puddle of Original Sin like the rest of us, God stuck out His Arm back through time from the Cross and kept her from falling in the mud puddle of Original Sin in the first place – but if it weren’t for God’s positive action of reaching out across time from the Cross and holding her from falling, she would have fallen. This is called “grace”, and is what the Angel Gabriel was referring to when he greeted Mary at the Annunciation with the words, “Hail! Full of grace! The LORD is with thee. Blessed art thou among women.” Luke 1:28

Full of grace means FULL. OF. GRACE. How full is full? Full is totally full. To the brim. Full does not mean half-full or mostly-full. Full means full. Mary was FULL OF GRACE.

And because Mary was FULL of grace, as we know directly from the inerrant words of the Gospel of Luke, there was absolutely no room for sin. Mary didn’t sin because God her Savior had filled her with grace and therefore she just COULDN’T sin. Most of us reading this have a tiny taste of what this is like. For example, I’m guessing that everyone reading this would be incapable of killing a baby. We just COULDN’T do it. No matter what threat was made against us, no matter what the adverse consequences to our own lives might be, we would take any adverse consequence before killing a baby. We are simply incapable of performing that act. Why? What is that internal force of energy that prevents us from committing acts of evil even when under intense duress and threat? It is grace. Pure and simple.

Sadly, most of us have a little grace, but are not in any way FULL of grace. I am personally much closer to being full of crap than of grace (which many of you have already pointed out to me – thank you very much), hence the daily, persistent, repeated sinning on my part. And I suspect it is a similar situation with you, dear reader, with the grace-to-crap ratio being much higher for you than for me. I really am quite full of crap. With Mary there was no crap because God her Savior had FILLED her with grace, and thus there was no room for crap, and thus there was no sin. It’s really just 2nd grade math if you think about it. But WHY? Why was it essential for Mary to be sinless and sinless from the moment of her conception? That’s where the science comes in.

There are two phases to Mary’s existence. The first phase was from the moment of her conception until the Annunciation, which is when Jesus was conceived in her womb by the Holy Ghost. The second phase was from that moment of Jesus’ conception forward for all eternity. Each phase has its own physiological delight attached to it which required Mary to be a sinless vessel for Our Lord.

First, the pre-Annunciation period. As it has been discovered just within the last few decades, all baby girls have all of the eggs that are ever going to be in their ovaries fully formed not just at birth, but fairly early in their fetal development phase. Unlike men who are continuously producing new sperm, a woman’s eggs aren’t created and formed with each menstrual cycle. All that is happening during a cycle is that an egg, which has been fully formed in a woman’s body since she was a pre-born fetus, is released into the reproductive tract. What this means theologically is that the egg containing the 23 chromosomes that God would miraculously fertilize with 23 chromosomes that He miraculously supplied (including a Y chromosome) to become the Word Made Flesh, Jesus Christ, was physically present inside Mary’s body from the time that Mary was inside of her mother’s, St. Anne’s, womb. That egg, and those chromosomes, that physical constituent of Our Blessed Lord was present inside of Mary’s body, waiting to be . . . if I may use the word . . . consecrated. The word consecrate, when broken into its Latin components means:

Con: With
Secr: Holy
Ate: Territory of a Ruler

And so, Mary was, from the time she was inside St. Anne’s womb, already carrying a portion of Our Lord’s physicality, namely 23 of His chromosomes. And thus Mary was, from her very beginning, already a proto-tabernacle, already the Ark of the New Covenant, carrying within her what would be consecrated into The Law Incarnate, The High Priest, and The Bread of Life – just like the Old Ark, except perfected and fully fulfilled as God Incarnate. And as we know from the book of Exodus, the Old Ark had to be “perfect”. And thus, the Ark of the New Covenant was TRULY perfect, except this perfection was a perfection that only God Himself could accomplish: the perfection of Mary, full of grace and thus saved from all sin, including Original Sin.

The second phase is actually broken into two sub-phases. The first sub-phase is when Mary was pregnant with Jesus and His entire body was inside of hers.

The second phase is that phase from the time of Jesus’ birth forward into all eternity. Jesus is STILL, to this day, right now as you are reading this, physically inside of Mary in a unique way. It was discovered just a few short years ago that immune cells pass from a pre-born child to the mother across the placenta. Not only do these immune cells, which are the child’s and thus carry the exclusive and complete DNA of the child, pass across the placenta, but they persist in the mother’s body for the rest of her life. A woman who has carried a son has immune cells with Y-chromosomes in her bloodstream that can now be filtered out of her blood and observed. Female children also pass cells to their mothers.

Thus, a woman truly does carry her children around inside of her, with their DNA coursing through her heart, for the rest of her life. That isn’t just a sentiment – it is a physiological fact.

Thus, Mary continued and continues to this day to be a perpetual, living physical tabernacle of her Son, as she carries cells with His DNA in her bloodstream. And so now we see why Mary was and had to be filled with grace and thus saved from the stain of sin from the moment of her conception eternally forward – because she was and is a perpetual Ark of the New Covenant.

This also explains why Mary’s body was assumed into heaven immediately at the end of her earthly life, because her body literally contained living cells of Our Lord and thus her body could not remain on earth in physical death to decay in any way.

Knowing that Christ rising again from the dead, dieth now no more, death shall no more have dominion over Him.

Scientes quod Christus resurgens ex mortuis jam non moritur : mors illi ultra non dominabitur.

-Romans 6: 9

She simply was afforded the same physical resurrection that all of the faithful will receive, albeit instantaneously for her, given her very special state, both spiritually and physically. This is what is doctrinally referred to as “The Assumption”.

Finally, if you are a quasi-Christian Protestant-pagan schismatic, or even a lapsed or unsound Catholic reading this and it has made you the least bit angry, you need to sit down and ask yourself one excruciatingly simple question: WHY?  Why are you so utterly consumed with hatred for the MOTHER. OF. GOD.?

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Our Lady, Assumed into heaven, pray for us.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and on your Holy Catholic Church.

Assumption of the Virgin, Guido Reni, ARSH 1637

Bonus for all of the Trad Inc. partisans now frantically denying the authority and supremacy of the Papacy in order to remain “in communion” with Antipope Bergoglio, here is the newsreel of the proclamation of the infallible Dogma of the Assumption by Pope Pius XII Pacelli, our father in God.  Look at all of that glorious, wonderful “papolatry”, as the haters of the Papacy now call it.  I wonder if the Trad Inc. Demi-apostates and Demi-schismatics deny THIS, TOO???  I guess they’ll have to check with the Patriarch of Moscow or Istanbul or the Supreme Antelope of the Lutherans, or Dawkins or Harris, or something to know what they believe today….
