And Elias, the prophet, stood up, as a fire, and his word burnt like a torch (Ecclesiasticus. 48.1, DRV)

The Queen of Heaven 'uncrowned'

+
J.M.J.

Traditional Feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Her great title, "Mediatrix of All Graces" - sacrificed @ Vatican II in the name of 'ecumenism' (another great Vatican II travesty!).



"I am the Mother of fair love, and of fear, and of knowledge, and of holy hope. In me is all grace of the way and of the truth, in me is all hope of life and of virtue. Come over to me, all ye that desire me, and be filled with my fruits. For my spirit is sweet above honey, and my inheritance above honey and the honeycomb. My memory is unto everlasting generations" (Ecclesiastcus 24.24-28).

The 'Novus Ordo Mass' - even when valid, always illegitimate

+
J.M.J.

Sunday in the Octave of "Corpus Christi"

The calamities that fell upon God's chosen people of Old prefigured already those that will chastise the Church Militant for its necessary purification. "Now all these things happened to them in figure... they are written for our correction" (1 Cor. 10.11). Pope Leo XIII taught this in his Encyclical "Diuturnum illud" but with grave admonition: those chastisements are graver for us who have been raised to the dignity of a Christian (one who bears Christ in him; better, another Christ yet in its varying degrees of correspondence unto its perfection - beginners, the advanced, and the proficient or the more fervent) by grace merited at the prize of the Most Precious Blood of the Eternal Word-made Flesh.

As this day dawned but yet it was still dark, the light of the Eternal Word, in the lessons of the First Nocturn of the Office of Matins taken from I Kings 4.1-11 (DRV), gave us another glimpse of the mystery of God's purifying hand now laying heavily on the Church. The chosen people were getting desperate in the face of invasion by the Philistines. They fetched for the Ark of the Covenant - that mighty visible form of the presence of the God of Hosts in the midst of His chosen people of Old. But God delivered His people into the hands of the enemies and let the Ark even as their enemies' precious spoil! Why this tragedy? The High Priest, Heli, consented to the corruption of the people by condoning his erring priests in the mockery of the sacred.

The 'mainstream official' Church still has the Real Presence in cases when a still validly ordained presbyter validly confects also the Blessed Sacrament. But from the preceding lesson, bringing about the Real Presence VALIDLY (with the proper intention and with the prescribed matter and form - the formula of Consecration over the matter - of the Sacrament) in their midst is not enough. There's still the crucial matter of bringing the Real Presence LICITLY : The priests who brought in the Ark were NOT PLEASING to God - they were far from the ideal of priestly ministry prescribed by God; so are the presbyters more so marked with a "new priesthood" (cf., "At the earth of the crisis - the priesthood"), donned in Lutheran/Anglican 'liturgical' costumes and presiding over a 'table' at a remodeled sanctuary after the fashion of a Masonic Lodge (cf., "The Catholic Sanctuary - II") to offer a "new rite of worship" [the "new rite of 'm(e)ss"" - the falsely claimed "Ordinary Form"] to the (g)od of their "NEW THEOlogy" (the non-Catholic god already unabashedly unmasked by Bergoglio ). To sum it up, even when the Consecration in this Vatican II-Church of the "Novus Ordo" (the "New World disorder") is still valid it will always remain illicit - unacceptable before the true God of Catholic Tradition; St. Thomas, in his "Summa", teaches that even when the Sacraments of heretics and schismatics are validly conferred [also in the 'Black Mass' of Satanists] they are illicit - the same for the apostates of the day; the Sacraments in their hands do not confer grace - which comes from God appeased, not mocked and enraged! This we are sure of from the preceding lesson by the Eternal Word - the 'mainstream', despite the palpably concrete mighty Divine Presence in their midst, was held easy prey to the powerful enemies, figuratively: eager priority of being 'happy' 'in'-citizens of a "New World Order' where there are no absolute truth-holders (the 'pre-Vatican II Church' clerics) and where Christ the King does not insist on His absolute dominion both in socio-economic and private affairs; willing 'weak' preys to cravings and lusts of the flesh: 'I'm only human,' 'many commit the same,' 'it's natural urge anyways;' willing cohorts of the proud devil: who do not want to go any further in pressing the truth confronting them down to its logical conclusions or, having gone painfully through it even with only the first steps cry, 'no, I will not submit, it's too much!'

There are of course certain cases when souls - in invincible ignorance and of just dispositions - in the "Novus Ordo 'Church' still receive grace but not because of a "Novus Ordo" 'Sacrament' reverently conferred validly; the graces flow unto them from the "throne of grace" - from our traditional Apostolic altars. Yet, this mercy of God towards them does not stop there: "iustum dedu[c]it Dominus per vias rectas" (The Lord conducts the just man through the right ways, Wis. 10.10) - and so they are led out of the 'Novus Ordo'.

Apostasy - the fundamental Truth of the Catholic Faith overthrown

+
J.M.J.



Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity - "Baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost" (Mt. 20.28).

The Lord and Savior Jesus Christ reveals thus the true God - the fundamental truth of the Catholic Religion. As such, the Athanasian Creed (Office of Prime in the Roman Breviary for the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity and on Sundays after Pentecost) declares :

"Whosoever wills to be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the Catholic Faith. Which Faith except every one do keep whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish eternally.

Now the Catholic Faith is this, that we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity. Neither confounding the Persons, nor dividing the substance... "

But Antipope Bergoglio, the "presiding" 'Pontifex' of the "New World Order" (the "Novus Ordo") Vatican II-'Church'':  "I believe... not in Catholic God, there's NO CATHOLIC GOD." - See more @ our post "Estote sapientes"

Truth - first in the order of true Charity

+
J.M.J.




The Descent of the Holy Spirit - "That the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father has given Me commandments, so do I" (from the Holy Gospel, Jn. 14.23-31).

"Jesus Christ," says St. Alphonsus, "was given to us as Savior and Master." "Hence," continues the great Doctor, "He came on earth principally to teach us, not only by His words, but also by His own example, how we are to love God - our Supreme Good."

This day reveals to us that Powerful Love Divine Which worked in Him and will work in us - the Spirit of Truth: truth is the first in the order of embrace of the Supreme Infinite Good, "I will espouse thee to Me in Faith" (Hos. 2.20). It is the truth which tells us the real good we ought to desire and take delight in by possession; needless to say, it is also the truth that makes us see through the seeming and apparent good in evil to be teared up and discarded - hence the pains of sacrificing in true love: Divine Charity expurging from our hearts its petty 'toys' that fade into obsolescence and decrepitude, petty 'toys' that perish after they have wearied us. Such is the power of the blazing "charity of God poured forth into our hearts" (Rom. 5.5). "Send forth Your Light, that our hearts like Yours burn bright."

To remain Catholic, stay with the 'official Institution'?

J.M.J. 



Feast of St. Athanasius - Greek Father and Doctor of the Catholic Church
known as "the Voice of Orthodoxy" when the hierarchy of the Church turned almost Arian.

Against the schismatic Orientals (the self-styled "Orthodox") who deny the Primacy of the Roman Pontiff over the Universal Church - in one of the numerous instances of forced exile of this venerable Patriarch of Alexandria, he appealed to the authority of Pope Julius who restored him to his episcopal see.

And now, when the hierarchy of the Church turned almost 1789 revolutionary perverts (cf., our post "The Year 1929") - against the same pseudo-ecclesiology (false doctrine on the Church) current in the mainstream 'Novus Ordo' (New World Order) 'Church', as with the mainstream 'SSPX', which equates the Church to her institutions (churches, seminaries, monasteries and convents, schools, charities, etc.): "to remain Catholic is to stay with the 'officials'"...

 ... the Catholic epistle of St. Athanasius on the institutional Church overturned 

Salvation is in the "Blood of the Lamb"

Apocalypse XIV now unfolding (cf., our posts "The Wine of the Wrath of God" and "After Pope Benedict XVI, the 'Last' Roman Pontiff?"). The divine chastisement of world-wide conflagration (Lk. 17.29-30, cf., our post "Our Lady, Vatican II Disorientation, and the Annihilation of Many Nations") to annihilate the 'super-power' and cities and nations drunk with the wine of its immodesty, impurity, fornication, homosexuality, and blasphemies (Apoc. 14.8) is imminent - the close of our end-times period (distinct from the consummation of the world, Mt. 28.20).

They... have made them white in the Blood of the Lamb
(Apoc. 7.14) ... All things... are cleansed with Blood: and without shedding of Blood there is no remission (Heb. 9.22).

The Blood of the [Divine] Lamb can be availed of in the traditional Rite of the Sacrament of Penance (cf., our post "On Concealing Sins in Confession") and of the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist (the Traditional Latin Mass). Go to our traditional Catholic Mass Centers (links on the left-side bar of this site). Flee to the mountains... (Mt. 24.16).
