Marian Devotion In A Church-Eclipse

By |2024-01-22T14:33:28+00:00January 23rd, 2024|Theology|

The Church will be in eclipse, the world will be in dismay... Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of Antichrist.—Our Lady of La Salette. Mary said the above words in a Vatican-approved apparition from the 19th century.  There's a lot of debate in the Catholic world today about this. In the year 2000, Catholic Answers had an article claiming it was misused by post-Vatican II traditionalists: “What is absurd is the radical traditionalist claim that the alleged prophecy of Our Lady of La Salette may be applied to Rome today… Radical traditionalists often seem to have a defective understanding of what counts as apostasy. It is much [...]

Immaculate Conception: The Temporal and Eternal One

By |2023-12-06T22:29:49+00:00December 7th, 2023|Theology|

Here's a text I got from a friend yesterday: "Okay, also, how is the Holy Spirit the uncreated Immaculate Conception, as Maximilian Kolbe says? Any good ideas on explaining it?"   My reply: "Yes it's because the Holy Spirit proceeds in eternity (not time) from the Father and the Son that one can even use the term 'ETERNAL Immaculate Conception' but one has to be very careful to extricate any sense of sex or time from it, since it's spiritual, there's no genders involved and the spiration of the Holy Spirit is in eternity ('Spiration' is the old school way to describe how the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father [...]

USA: The Country the Mother of God Called “Wild.”

By |2023-10-25T19:40:38+00:00October 26th, 2023|Theology|

Unless you are a practicing Catholic living in the Great Lakes region of the USA, you probably do not know that an approved Marian apparition happened in the 19th century in Wisconsin.  The name of this apparition is Our Lady of Champion, and it was deemed “Worthy of Belief” by the Authority of the Catholic Church and also in 2016 by Bishop Ricken of Green Bay, WI. Adele Brise was a girl born in Belgium in 1831.  As a young girl, she lost her sight in her right eye due to an accident.  Later, her family moved to Wisconsin with other Belgian settlers.  When she was walking through the forest [...]

What is the Third-Secret of Fatima?

By |2023-09-20T03:53:53+00:00September 19th, 2023|Theology|

What is the Third Secret of Fatima?  The full Third Secret has not been released by the Vatican, but even many moderate Catholics today know it's more than the shooting of Pope John Paul II or a LARPing tale of future-crossbows on a Vatican hill.  Last week, I blogged here on Malachi Martin regarding the Jesuits, so I decided to quote him on Fatima today, too.  Although I have seen Martin's quotes in more places than one, they are nicely compiled in one spot by Gloria TV.  So, I simply reproduce their article here: Father Malachi Martin (reader of the Third Secret of Fatima) Interview with Bernard Janzen 1992, The [...]

Fatima’s First-Saturday 15-minute Meditation

By |2023-09-04T13:43:51+00:00September 7th, 2023|Theology|

For those who heed the message of Our Lady of Fatima, the first Saturday devotion includes three things: 1) The reception of Holy Communion after Confession (within 8 days before or after) 2) Praying five decades of the Rosary. 3) Spending 15 minutes in meditation on the mysteries of the Rosary. This last one seems confusing in debates between good Catholics. Some believe this means meditating on all fifteen decades of the Rosary for a quarter hour. However, this would probably not be "meditation" according to Our Lady's definition, as you would only be spending one-minute on each mystery! The clearest answer comes from the late Father Dooley, an American [...]

The Immaculate Conception in the Mystical City of God

By |2022-11-29T05:51:54+00:00December 8th, 2022|Theology|

The above painting is of SS. Joachim and Anne, the parents of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The 17th century Spanish Franciscan abbess, Venerable Mary of Jesus of Ágreda of Spain, received a private-revelation on the life of the Immaculate Virgin Mary that comes to a few thousand pages in a book called The Mystical City of God.  The Mystical City of God was attacked by the Jansenists as inauthentic.  Is it reliable?  Besides the fact that Sr. Mary of Ágreda has been declared "Venerable" by the Catholic Church, her book has the approval of Popes Innocent XI, Alexander VIII, Clement IX, Benedict XIII, Benedict XIV and Clement XIV.  By "approved" we mean [...]

Maria “Prius Concíperet Mente Quam Córpore.”

By |2023-10-11T03:31:59+00:00November 1st, 2022|Theology|

Prius concíperet mente quam córpore.—Pope St. Leo, First Sermon on the Nativity of the Lord (found in Matins of the old Divine Office on the Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary on 10 October) on how the Immaculate Virgin Mary first conceived in her mind, even before her body. The Mystery of the Incarnation is defined as the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity (God the Son) becoming man as Jesus Christ—a zygote in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Mary is also known as the Mother of God and the Holy Theotokos. Obviously, Mary was not the formal cause of the Incarnation, but she did more than just [...]

Mary, Destroyer of All Heresies Part II

By |2022-10-09T19:53:50+00:00October 13th, 2022|Theology|

In Part I, we discussed how Mary's interior life was entirely God-centered (not man-centered) and how her life, although ordinary in her daily duties, was a string of miracles from her Conception to her Assumption.  Miracles overturns the heresy of modernism which is primarily a man-centered version of Catholicism that looks through the ancient faith through natural goggles instead of the supernatural vision given to us by Divine Revelation. I release this blog on 13th of October which is not only the anniversary of the greatest miracle since the Resurrection (namely, the miracle of the sun seen at Fatima by 70,000 believers and unbelievers alike on 13 Oct 1917) but [...]
