St. James Intercisus, Martyr of Second Chances

By |2022-11-28T22:45:28+00:00November 29th, 2022|Theology|

St. James Intercisus' martyrdom from Butler's lives of the saints, reprinted with permission of Sensus Fidelium.  St. James' feast day in the Roman Martyrology and the Eastern Rites is 27 Nov. St. James was a native of Beth-Lapeta, a royal city in Persia, and a nobleman of the first rank, and of the highest reputation in that kingdom for his birth and great qualifications, both natural and acquired, and for the extraordinary honors and marks of favor which the king conferred upon him, and which were his most dangerous temptation. For when his prince declared war against the Christian religion,† this courtier had not the courage to renounce his royal master and [...]

The Connection Between Climate-Alarmism and Abortion

By |2022-11-25T16:49:58+00:00November 25th, 2022|Theology|

We are starting to see that the secular religion of leftists is Satanism.  Perhaps, if you were in a pub in 1965 in Chicago, you might hear a healthy debate between a conservative man and a liberal man on, say,  how much taxes should be allotted to waste-disposal or the local police force.  There were probably good arguments on both sides of the fence.  But now that the left is arguing for infanticide and genital mutilation of pre-teens, we have to ask:  What is driving such assertions found to be so irrational?  We all know that the answer to anything that irrational is this:  Demons are directly influencing human beings.

A Thanksgiving for Many Things

By |2022-11-26T17:34:58+00:00November 24th, 2022|Life|

First of all, I want to thank from the bottom of my heart all of my listeners and readers, all of my benefactors—both material and spiritual.  We who raise our own funds as religious figures are often tempted to thank our spiritual benefactors just as much as our material benefactors—but only as a show to keep the financial donations coming.  Not me anymore.  I have faced enough spiritual attack since my ordination in 2010 that I can not tell you how much more I need prayers and novenas and Masses and especially your fastings even more than financial donations. Still, I am extremely thankful for both groups of donors.  All [...]

“Died Suddenly” by Stew Peters

By |2022-11-24T03:31:19+00:00November 22nd, 2022|Theology|

Died Suddenly is a new documentary by Stew Peters on the increase in of all-cause deaths since the release of the C-19 "vaccine."  He proposes a motive of zero-population growth for how many have "died suddenly" from the vaccine.  The cinematography is a little hokey, and it's a bit too scary for children, but it is worth watching for anyone interested in anything beyond what CNN is saying on the enormous increase of all-cause mortality from 2020 to 2022.  Died Suddenly tackles both blood-clots in adults and the astonishing 40+sigma increase in stillbirth-rate since the release of the deadly covid "vaccine."  There were over 6M views in just the first two [...]

The Abomination of Desolation

By |2022-11-20T14:11:03+00:00November 20th, 2022|Theology|

The Gospel in the TLM today is about the end of the world.  Christ declares that "the abomination of desolation" will enter "the holy place." (Mt 24:15.)  In those days "there shall arise false Christs and false prophets" (v. 24.) Our Lord adds this unusual line: "Unless those days had been shortened, no flesh should be saved.  But for the sake of the elect those days shall be shortened." (v. 22.) Earlier in Matthew 24, Christ describes dark signs that will precede His light-filled return: "You shall hear of wars and rumours of wars." (v. 6.) And "nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there shall be [...]

The Monastic Amice

By |2022-11-18T04:28:18+00:00November 19th, 2022|Life|

The amice is the neck and shoulder sweat-guard that is the first item put on by a Roman Catholic priest while vesting for Holy Mass.  The priest touches the amice to his head as a blessing as he prays:  Place upon me, O Lord, the helmet of salvation, that I may overcome the assaults of the devil.  I say that prayer in Latin before every Mass, which is: Impóne, Dómine, cápiti meo gáleam salútis, ad expugnándos diabólicos incúrsus.  After the amice touches the priest's head, he wraps it around his shoulders and ties it across his torso.  Besides being a blessing and a sweat-guard, the amice also covers the cassock (or [...]

There Is Only One Abrahamic Faith

By |2022-11-18T04:29:52+00:00November 17th, 2022|Theology|

There is only Abrahamic Faith, and that is Christianity—which is Catholicism.  Remember that the Jews who reject Christ do claim, “Abraham is our father.” (John 8:39.)  But Jesus immediately denies this assertion by saying:  If you were Abraham's children, you would be doing the works Abraham did, but now you seek to kill Me, a Man Who has told you the truth that I heard from God. This is not what Abraham did.  You are doing the works your father did...You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires.—John 8:39-41, 44.  Notice again that Christ Himself in Jn 8 says that the Jews [...]
