CLIMATE CHANGE? – You’d better believe it!

I’m afraid the buffoons currently in a tizzy in Paris about over what to do about the climate will experience, at the time of their passing, a profound “Climate Change” in the form of extreme heat for their failure to dealing with the true priority – that of the taking of innocent life in abortuaries and at the hands of Muslim extremists. But, this is typical of the “new springtime” being foisted upon us since Man decided he knew better than God at Vatican II. May God have Mercy on their souls. read more

Last week, during the holy communion, a host was returned to the father overseeing the service. A host is the small wafer handed out as part of the communion. The father placed the host in glass of water near the head of the church. Typically, the host will dissolve away in a few minutes. read more

A Call to Terminate Papal Trips: A noisy, expensive counterfeit of Papal Duty

A Call to Terminate Papal Trips
A noisy, expensive counterfeit of Papal Duty
By John Vennari
posted at www.cfnews.org

In 1761, speaking of the primary duty of the Pope, Clement XIII wrote, “In the Lord’s field, for the tending of which Divine Providence placed us as overseer, there is nothing which demands as much vigilant care and unremitting labor in its cultivation than guarding the good seed of Catholic teaching which the Apostles received from Jesus Christ and handed on to Us. If in laziness this is neglected, the enemy of the human race will sow weeds while the workers sleep.”[1]
Likewise Pope St. Pius X, the greatest Pope of modern times, noted that one of the “primary obligations assigned by Christ” to the papal office was “that of guarding with greatest vigilance the deposit of Faith delivered to the Saints, rejecting the profane novelties of words and the gainsay of knowledge false so-called.”
Pius explained that in the face of error and heresy (in his case, in the face of Modernism), “We may no longer keep silence, lest we should seem to fail in our most sacred duty.”[2]
To repeat: the primary duty of the Pope is to “guard with greatest vigilance the deposit of the Faith” and “there is nothing which demands as much vigilant care and unremitting labor” to maintain the purity of Catholic teaching. Not to do so means the Pope would “fail in his most sacred duty,” and as a result of this neglect, “the enemy of the human race sows weeds while the workers sleep.”
Or in our case, while the Pontiffs travel.
Papal trips are a noisy, expensive counterfeit of Papal duty – a frenetic sentimentalism disguised as genuine vitality. This high-energy neurosis is now of 50-year duration, the same period of the collapse of the Faith in every country on earth. Worldwide globetrotting may give the appearance of authentic papal action, but the results are useless at best, scandalous at worst. Meanwhile, the abysmal ignorance of the Catholic Faith amongst clergy and laity continues to worsen.
I propose we end the charade and bring the papal trips to a grinding halt – now.
What is needed, and we say this with respect, is not endless travel, but a return to sound doctrine and genuine discipline, according to the model of St. Pius X. This great Pope not only issued clear correction to the errors of his day, but enacted effectively disciplinary measures against priests and teachers infected with Modernism. His Pontificate was that of vigilance, vigilance and ever-more vigilance against heresy and in advancing Catholic Truth. Pius X stayed in Rome and did his job.
The faith worldwide is in collapse. Later we will look at the results of the recent Vatican Synod questionnaire, wherein the vast majority of Catholic Faithful worldwide either reject, or do not understand, rudimentary moral teaching. read more

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!

Despite all that is happening in the world today we have much to be thankful for. It is only appropriate, therefore, that we give thanks to the God who made us for all the blessings we have received. To Him be honor and glory now and forever. And, despite the urging of some that we belittle our Holidays, we offer to all a very Happy Thanksgiving.

The Wizard Clip

While looking for some of the writings of Solange Hertz I came on this story. I was trying to find out which one of her books mentioned the first real Thanksgiving. Does anyone know which book ?

The Wonderous Tale Of The Wizard Clip

by Solange Hertz

By the banks of Opequon Creek, near the little colonial village of Middle way, West Virginia, lies a tract of land known for generations as Priest Field. Despite its unassuming aspect, it boasts an extraordinary history, which unfolded with the beginnings of the Catholic Church in the U.S. All the ecclesiastical records were destroyed by the clergy, but many well-documented accounts by contemporaries survive. Among these witnesses was the famous Russian convert, Prince Dimitri Augustine Gallitzin, who was the first priest to receive all his orders in the new man-made nation, and who as Fr. Demetrius A. “Smith” became the Apostle of the Alleghenies. read more

NO SPECIFIC, CREDIBLE THREAT?

Sounds like this statement comes direct from Jorge Bergoglio’s playbook in regards to the threat we are under from the newchurch and its agents. Where are these people coming from? Oh, and by the way, Happy Thanksgiving says El Presidente but don’t you in the military dare say “Merry Christmas” ’cause you might offend someone (See pewsitter.com for details.) It just gets more unbelievable with each passing day.
