  Feast of the Dedication of the Basilicas of the Holy Apostles, Ss. Peter & Paul, 2018 (11-18-18)

 

Thought about it prayerfully and had decided, by November 12th, to add a brief Coda or Dénouement, to the just completed book, Helplessly Ignorant. It involves a last parable, with which the tome is rife, for those who have read it thus far and comprehend.

 

Curious? Or sense something imperative is being pointed out?

 

Then take a look. It’s very short. Although, in all honesty, it probably won’t make much apprehensible sense without studying the rest of the book and having adequate context. It seemed, however, that it was time. As Jesus told real Roman Catholics in the Gospels, sometimes we must take what we’re taught in secret and shout it from the rooftops.

 

But the Feast? The Dedication of Ss. Peter & Paul’s Basilicas?

 

A true & well-informed Catholic will know that Christ never made St. Paul the Head Apostle, to rule His Catholic Body. Yet the true & well-informed Catholic will often know Christ did choose to make St. Paul the Apostle to the Gentiles (read: to those human beings who were not already part of the ‘Synagogue’, or Old Testament Church). They may know, too, how Jesus destined Paul to eventually come to the Diocese of Rome --- which is the place He establishes as the residence of the Visible Head, or ‘Vicar’, of His Ecclesial Body.

 

To wit, where the Papacy resides under normal conditions, and what makes a man, who’s Roman Catholic, the actual pope, sitting upon and reigning from St. Peter’s Throne. So what did St. Paul’s arrival in Rome, Italy, during his life’s work as an evangelist for the One True Religion of Catholicism amount to? And the answer: he became the auxiliary bishop of the Diocese of Rome, subject to the Supreme Authority of St. Peter and the latter’s helper, or assistant, in his many duties as Christ’s Representative on earth.

 

Meanwhile, as Jesus had determined from all of eternity, St. Peter arrived in Rome after shortly residing in the Diocese of Jerusalem (but not as Jerusalem’s bishop!, this honor bestowed upon St. James the Righteous) and later operating as bishop of the Diocese of Antioch in Syria for seven years. It is being a real Catholic Whole & Entire, as well as a validly consecrated bishop and true & rightful election by true & rightful cardinals of the Diocese of Rome in Italy, which makes a man of sound mind the true & rightful pope. This principle stands perpetually until Christ returns. It’s why wise Catholics call Rome the ‘Eternal City’.

 

As far as I can tell, howsoever, most people… including the few who are really Catholic nowadays during the Great Apostasy… almost invariably, and mistakenly, presume out of thin air that the Throne of St. Peter (in the canonic sense, not the sense of Peter’s ancient & original chair, which we still have and, to my knowledge, is kept as a relic at the Vatican) is situated within the Vatican, within the aforementioned Basilica of St. Peter. THIS IS NOT THE CASE. The Vatican, under normal circumstances (read: not during a unique emergency time like we endure right now, during the Great Apostasy), functions as the center of the Papacy’s Curia, the men entrusted with the pope’s delegated authority to carry out his duties, duties that are too numerous for one single man to handle all by himself. Ergo, St. Peter’s Throne --- his monarchic ecclesial authority --- does NOT reside in St. Peter’s Basilica. Rather, this venerable site is where Peter was crucified & buried, the high altar directly over his hallowed bones. Likewise St. Paul’s Basilica. This venerable site is where Paul was decapitated & buried, his hallowed bones kept there safe for honor and holy prayer.

 

So where is St. Peter’s Throne, in the canonic and supremely authoritative sense?

 

St. John Lateran, formerly known in the first millennium as St. Savior, the feast day we as Catholics celebrated a mere nine days ago on November the 9th. This is the Cathedral of the Diocese of Rome in Italy. Hence, it is also the Mother Cathedral of the world, from where the Papacy rules the Church Militant anywhere a real Catholic exists in this mortal existence.

 

The point? This is, in my opinion, why God allowed Lucifer and the enemies of Christ’s Church to do what they have done during the Great Apostasy. Yes, He has allowed them to fool the world, both non-Catholics and self-styled Catholics (that is, those who aren’t truly the Roman Catholics they claim to be, having never professed, or having denied, one or more of Christ’s Catholic Church’s Infallible Dogmas in their ancient, original, correct, strict & unchanging sense). But, no, Almighty God has NOT permitted them to steal everything. Human beings are blind, religiously speaking, but He has not permitted them to completely co-opt St. John Lateran. Contrarily, they pulled off their stunt of pretending to preserve real Catholicity in Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican II Pseudo-Council. This made it look very ‘official’, hence ‘beyond questioning’. And the man who initiated this awful evil and damnable lie, John XXIII, purposefully used a papal name that had been sullied with the heresy of John XXII (22, realize!, not 23) as a subtle way to indicate his intent, for those in the know, what he was planning to do. Similarly his successor, Paul VI, who took over leadership of this Pseudo-Council upon John XXIII’s death in 1963 (Vatican went on from 1962 to 1965, incidentally). The goal? In my opinion, Paul VI --- who revealed himself notoriously & pertinaciously as the heretic he was with open & brazen promulgation of the execrable documents of Vatican II, assuming he had not already done so before this moment --- signaled with his chosen name, Paul, that someone with no business being in charge of the visible Church Militant was now visibly pretending to be in charge of God’s Singular Church of Catholicism. That is to say, just as St. Paul was the auxiliary bishop of Rome and NOT Rome’s head bishop, so, also, Paul VI was NOT Rome’s true head bishop, despite pretending to be so and fooling the unwary, self-deluded world. Unlike St. Paul, though --- who was truly Catholic --- the serpentine Paul VI was nothing of the sort, revealing his non-Catholicity (nay! his anti-Catholicity…) at the conclusion of Vatican II in 1965. Additionally, the ‘VI’ in ‘Paul VI’ indicated his self-deification of our Humanity over the Divinity, so perniciously put arrogantly forward as the ‘dignity’ of human beings. In reality, our pride & iniquity. Because, in the Apocalypse of Sacred Scripture, what is the number of humanity?

 

That is correct --- 6. It is ‘our number’ just as much as 7 is ‘God’s Number’.

 

Therefore, Paul VI, as the terrestrial beast --- with horns ‘like a lamb’ yet speaking with a voice that is ‘like a dragon’ --- was signaling, to those with ears to hear and in the know, that 6 was, so to speak, attempting to destroy and take over from 7. That Humanity would rule in the place of the Divinity, that Lucifer was making one last stab at stealing God’s Heavenly Throne. This is the parable being told & seen, for those with ears to hear & eyes to see.

 

Later antipopes (namely, John Paul I & John Paul II) then took the unprecedented move of adopting two monikers as their ‘papal’ names, signaling by this that they fully intended to continue the ruse of a fake ‘catholicity’. Benedict XVI (16, not 15!), who was a so-called expert at Vatican II and supported it doggedly in spite of his carefully crafted reputation, later, as a supposed ‘traditionalist’, adopted the name of Benedict precisely for this purpose of leading further into anti-Catholicity whilst deceiving the unwary into thinking him so ‘traditional’, with a ‘traditional-sounding’ moniker like the great & saintly monk, St. Benedict. Segueing into our present antipope, Francis, who chose this unprecedented moniker in order to pursue gargantuan change & perversion under the guise of ‘love’ and the ‘unexpected inspirations’ of an unholy spirit (read: Luciferian spirit!). Or, put differently, just as worldly minded people use Christ’s Life to twist it into a message of ‘mercy’ and ‘love’ that totally ignores everything He taught regarding sin, disobedience, judgment & hell, so, too, do such people --- like Antipope Francis --- use St. Francis’ life (who was so very Christ-like!) to twist it into a message of fake ‘mercy’ and ‘love’ that totally ignores everything Francis upheld & taught regarding sin, disobedience, judgment & hell, being a good & loyal son of the Roman Catholic Church.

 

Diabolic? Absolutely. How are we so easily fooled? Because of the ‘operation of error’.

 

Viz., we’ve been so bad and so rebellious that God has given the whole world over to a diabolic spirit of deception & wickedness, leaving us blind in our sins. In this way we then receive punishment to the fullest, deserving it completely due to our willful iniquities, including the worst of them all --- willful rejection of Catholicism Whole & Entire.

 

Yet enough said. The book is now there, fully. Read it or not. I’ve done my job.

 

I’ve told the truth and made it available for everyone. Praiseworthy?

 

Not really. I am an unworthy servant, doing only what I ought.

 

That is not deserving of praise. The message, howsoever?

 

That stands apart from my unworthiness. Useful?

 

That’s up to the Triune Catholic God to decide.

 

Ad majorem Dei gloriam. Ad Jesum per Mariam.

 

Sacred & Suffering Heart of King Jesus, have mercy on us!

 

Immaculate & Sorrowful Heart of Queen Mary, Ever-Virgin, pray for us!

 

•  Feast of the Dedication of St. John Lateran, the Cathedral of Rome & Mother Cathedral of the Catholic Church Throughout the World, as Well as Feast of Ss. Tryphon, Respicius & Nympha, Martyrs & Virgin, 2018 (11-9-18)

 

Last (relatively) short 3 chapters of Helplessly Ignorant posted.

 

The sixth devastating argument against the falsehood of ‘salvation-in-invincible-ignorance-via-sincerity’ for intelligent people wound up; the seventh argument briefly stated; and the 180th chapter now closes it. The book is now essentially complete. Took two more days to make tweaks and get everything finalized, but the symbolism of the day was very, very important, not least of which is the fact it occurred on a Friday this sanctoral cycle, Our Savior’s Day of Crucifixion, and from whence He arose, wholly alive, upon Easter Sunday. This all happened --- ultimately --- because of St. Peter’s Successors. It will, then, involve a real Successor to St. Peter in order for it --- ultimately --- to resolve successfully.

 

The Great Apostasy that we live through today, that is.

 

And as the three martyrs show (that number again…):

 

It has been martyrdom one way or another, in the end.

 

A new ‘panangelon’ to come soon? Maybe.

 

Yet, like St. Nympha, virginal in the end with Our Lord’s Roman Catholic Body truly resurrected. Even if not virgins here on earth before our deaths, virgins of the heart in Heaven Above if we persevere till our utmost breath. We’re in Our Lady’s Hands.

 

Most Sacred & Suffering Heart of Our Most Majestic Lord, King Jesus, have mercy on us! Most Immaculate & Sorrowful Heart of Our Most Regal Lady, Queen Mary, pray for us! Cradle us maternally in Your Mantle, guarding us from that which threatens Your children’s souls!

 

  Seventh Day in the Octave of All Saints Day, 2018 (11-6-18)

 

Final long & complex 3 chapters of Helplessly Ignorant posted, getting us to Chapter 177.

 

How is the Sign of the Virgin incorporated in the capitol city of the Anglo-American Empire, how is it that real & good Catholics strive to be like this Virgin, Who is She, really?, and, how do Her enemies try to imitate & mock Her, like ‘angels of light’, and, failing to admit what reality appears to show --- visibly --- that everything points to this Sign & Catholicism?

 

Seven is the number Modern Humanity strives for; seventh head of Oceanic Beast.

 

Seven also the number, par excellence, of the Creator they dare to oppose…

 

Who do you think will win in the end? Fake ‘god’ or the real God? Nervous?

 

Don’t be. If truly Catholic, and good, you’ve God’s Mercy with you.

 

If not Catholic, or just bad regardless… what do you care? I mean.

 

We’re in the home stretch now. Not as in, ‘The End of the World!’ At least, I think not. I haven’t ever claimed to a be a ‘prophet’, so hands off. I’m just a real Catholic who thinks a lot, and, if on the right track --- and on God’s Side for real as a real Catholic --- then I’m saying, “Might want to heed the Signs of the Times. No honest Catholic person, who really looks, dares to say otherwise, however few we are. It’s the end of the world as we know it.”

 

One way or another. Meaning, whether bad or good, no going back now.

 

We’ve sealed our fate. That’s all. End of the world AS WE KNOW IT.

 

¿Comprende? As I’m fond of saying, with a nod to Hispanic friends.

 

Hispania, Iberia. Doesn’t mean what everyone thinks, historically.

 

I’ve known lots of people from Central America, South America, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Cuba, the United States (first, second & third generations), etc., etc., etc. & etc. Lots of them have been wonderfully nice people. Some of them, noble. I’ve great love in my heart for them.

 

Yet the word ‘Hispania’ (or Iberia…) comes from the Spanish Peninsula in España. Spain used to have an empire (Portugal, as well, reflected in contemporary Brazil especially), and her power has influenced the entire world, whether people in the US like it or not. What say you?

 

Like it or not? It’s a litmus test, I admit freely. Like it? You’re not quite modern.

 

Hate it? Chances are, you’re very modern. Just chances, though. That’s all.

 

Don’t claim to be omniscient or infallible. Merely Catholic and dubious.

 

Dubious that you’re Catholic. Dubious that a truly modern person wants to be nice. And dubious that anyone is sincere… even those who profess most adamantly to be so. Cynical? No… more rationally jaded. As in, ‘I’ve seen enough to know people are biased & confused.’ Ergo, cautious? A bit. Ready to believe the worst? Maybe. Hopeful otherwise? Always.

 

Because God is God and Our Creator is Roman Catholic and none other. Always.

 

As in, ‘Forever’. Most Sacred Hearts of Jesus & Mary, have mercy upon & pray for us!

 

  Feast of Christ the King, the God-Man and the Everlasting Monarch Both in Heaven & on Earth, Even Now, and Feast of Ss. Simon & Jude, Apostles, 2018 (10-28-18)

 

And another 3 chapters of Helplessly Ignorant thrown in the ring, taking us to Chapter 174.

 

We are within 6 chapters of finishing, believe it or not (yet utterly true, Celestial Scout’s honor).

 

What are the spiritual abominations of the Apocalyptic Harlot? And are we, Modern Humanity, really so abominable, religiously speaking… and is the Anglo-American Empire really so bad, all in all? Here we get delicate, trying to speak nicely and not wanting to offend, anyone, least of all my fellow countrymen, citizens of the United States. Because, unfortunately, the answer is yes, we are. We are that bad and we do great evil.

 

Yet the “great city” that the Harlot represents? Where is this?

 

Read the post and perhaps you’ll find some rejoinders.

 

Appropriate that we should upload on the Feast of Christ the King, established on the universal liturgical calendar in 1925 by Pope Pius XI. Why? To remind Catholics --- whose nations were de-catholicizing and increasingly ruled by non-Catholics & anti-Catholics --- as well as the entire world that, yes, Jesus Christ truly is a King. And not just airy fairy in an invisible Heaven, or equally airy fairy in a not-yet-seen future to come. Rather, here and now. His ‘Social Kingship’, as theologians liked to say, extends to real governments and actual peoples right here on earth, and Christ’s Kingship is established now, here, as a Catholic nation rules and as Catholic nations make & enforce Catholic laws. Scared?

 

Don’t be. It’s the right thing, honest. God rules through mere human beings.

 

Indeed, good Catholics will rule with Christ upon thrones over the earth.

 

Meanwhile, His Kingship starts in your heart when you become Roman Catholic. It extends upon earth through your thoughts, words & deeds. If the head of a Catholic family, e.g., it extends over the members of this family and the household. When whole nations convert, becoming thoroughly (or nigh well thoroughly…) Roman Catholic, then His Kingship extends, in reality, over this land. Meaning, it better have Roman Catholic laws and Roman Catholic leaders, and the Roman Catholic Church truly better have a real say in all things that concern Holy Religion and anything to do with the One True Faith. Capisci?

 

This infuriated the Modernist world. Which screams, “No, ‘religious liberty’!

 

When, truly, they mean ‘real liberty only for the most liberal of Modernists’.

 

As the US found out in the wake of an historic Obergefell v. Hodges decision.

 

The point is, while there are a lot of ramifications, it boils down to this: that you don’t pretend ‘religious liberty’ in a nation that is truly & wholly Roman Catholic. If ‘no Salvation outside the Church’ in its original, ancient, strict, correct & unchanging sense, then why in the world would a Catholic nation say, “Hey, guys, it’s okay to be any religion you want. We don’t have any right to tell you different.” Why would a Catholic nation be responsible for sending untold numbers of unwary souls to hell by doing this? Mind you, no real & wise Catholic thinks you can, or should, ‘force’ someone to be ‘catholic’ (as if this were ‘possible’… which it’s not, Church’s Canon Law forbidding forced conversions --- a forced conversion properly understood --- which ‘conversions’ are not even real!). Yet why must a Catholic nation offer ‘religious liberty’ in its land when it knows there is no Salvation outside the Church’?

 

This is beyond stupid, it is diabolic. A Catholic nation will not remain Catholic with such idiotic laws upon its books (which is part of the point, from a Modernist perspective…), and so a Catholic makes laws to circumscribe what non-Catholics can or cannot do in their land. For instance, they cannot proselytize or worship in their false religion publicly. Why endanger the precious souls of others by making them think it’s ‘okay’ to be this false religion? True, never do you force the non-Catholic to convert to Catholicism, nor do you forbid them to carry out their false religious services, despite making them do so privately. Once again, capisci?

 

This is what the Social Kingship of Christ means in a real world, here right now.

 

Still relevant, given that we’re in the Great Apostasy with no Catholic lands?

 

Yes. Because God will end the Apostasy, and Catholic nations will return.

 

It behooves us (real Catholics, that is) to be prepared. May be sooner than we think.

 

And the Feast of Ss. Simon & Jude, two of the Twelve Apostles, Our Lord’s first bishops of His Roman Catholic Body, the Church? They got subsumed, so to speak, this year in Christ’s Illumination. Not that they mind, I’m sure. They were sent to Egypt, Mesopotamia & Persia, making many converts until they were martyred. Yes, if you’re paying attention, the very places I surmise to be the 2nd head of the Oceanic Beast (Egypt) and the 5th head of satan’s Oceanic Beast (Mesopotamia & Persia, that is, roughly equivalent to Iraq & Iran today... roughly). Exactly what we need presently, for the 7th head of an increasingly nasty & rude Oceanic Beast. That is to say, apostles, converting many nations, extending Christ’s Monarchy.

 

Which is Roman Catholic and none other --- just in case you’re not thinking straight.

 

Our Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Whose Ecclesial Body is Roman Catholic & naught else, may Your Rule and Your Kingdom extend everywhere, both in Heaven and on earth. May this Rule, once Your Mother’s Heel crushes the Serpent’s Head, establish itself everywhere around the globe, if merely for a brief time of peace, prior to the utter & ultimate end of the world as we know it. Amen!

 

Ss. Simon & Jude Thaddeus, Apostles & Martyrs. Pray for us and for this petition!

 

Queen Mary, Throne of Wisdom, pray for us and implore Your Son!

 

Extra Eccesiam nulla Salus. ¡Viva Cristo Rey! Amen.

 

  Feast of St. Raphael the Archangel, 3rd Greatest of the 7 Seraphim, Standing Continually in the Presence of the Godhead, Protector & Accompanier of St. Tobias the Younger and Healer & Comforter of St. Tobias the Elder, and Patron of All Catholics Who Must Travel, Whether Short or Long Distance, 2018 (10-24-18)

 

Still another 3 chapters of Helplessly Ignorant added, bringing the book to Chapter 171.

 

We are now only 9 chapters from finishing, completing the book with Chapter 180.

 

Many things transfix & fascinate in the bizarre yet poignant Parables of the Apocalypse, final tome of 73 altogether in the Sacred Scripture of God’s Singular Roman Catholic Church at present. The Oceanic Beast, the Terrestrial Beast, the Mystery of 666… and the strange & repulsive Apocalyptic Harlot upon the Scarlet-Colored Beast with names of blasphemy covering its body and the phrase ‘Mystery, Babylon the Great…’ upon her head.

 

What does it mean? Read, if you wish to know. Particularly if you’re Catholic.

 

It all applies today, during the Great Apostasy. It’s what we live through.

 

But St. Raphael? The significance there? Again, I’m glad you asked.

 

Dear St. Tobias the Elder was a wonderful & brave Catholic of the Old Testament, living in captivity under pagan oppressors (God’s Punishment then for those vowed to Him becoming so very wicked and even anti-Catholic, forsaking their vows en masse), burying at night Catholics murdered by these pagans and even enduring mockery for doing so from his fellow co-religionists, who, you might think, would commend him for intrepid, honorable acts. Then, ultimate humiliation --- he loses his sight, becoming blind for years, helpless and falling into terrible poverty. Only his son, St. Tobias the Younger, can help them at this point, and he has to make a long & dangerous journey of several hundred miles through a vile & perilous land full of cruel pagans in order to save his family from starvation & ruin. What does God do? Send St. Raphael the Archangel, under the guise of a mere man, to assist him. Who does precisely this, Tobias the Younger trusting him implicitly, successful in the end.

 

Along the way, Raphael instructs Tobias in how to free his wife-to-be from demonic affliction. You must understand, his wife-to-be was not ‘afflicted’ by ‘possession’ or ‘obsession’ (as the one instructed in the part of Catholic Theology called ‘Demonology’ would put it), rather, she was afflicted in that, married successively to seven separate men in sequence, each and every one of them suffers death at the hands of a very powerful and very, very deadly demon before the marriage may even be consummated. After a while, a poor woman afflicted thusly ceases to have suitors. Even the most healthy & natural of young men are wary of potential harm to their own wellbeing in doing so. For the traditional woman, this is tragic. And also totally humiliating, as if you have a ‘curse’ upon you. Why did God allow it? Just like with the two Tobiases, elder & younger, to test her with suffering. And because, frankly, none of those seven men was worthy of such a fantastic, pious & holy Catholic wife. Hence their fate.

 

But Tobias the Younger? Ah, different. Once having proved himself, great success!

 

By trusting and following the instructions of our redoubtable angel, St. Raphael.

 

Likewise real Roman Catholics today, what few remain. We are in captivity in a cruel neo-pagan world. No one likes us, no one knowingly helps us because we’re truly Catholic and belong to the Godhead. If anything, we are mocked & reviled… especially by those who consider themselves ‘catholic’ (but aren’t!) and even, sometimes, from those who are, in actuality, Roman Catholic, our own spiritual siblings persecuting us. Tough break?

 

If you’ve lived through it, suffering terribly, you know how difficult it is.

 

Let us turn to St. Raphael in prayer --- whose name means ‘God heals’ in ancient Hebrew --- and beseech him to help us. Help us in a hard & perilous journey through earthly life, staying true to our baptismal vows as God’s Own, truly Roman Catholic, to persevere unto the end, dying a good death in the state of grace. He is, after all, Patron of Catholic Travelers. And beseech him, too, to heal us, God’s Church, and this wicked & rebellious world, exorcising demons and defeating the devil, who murders one unworthy ‘husband’ after another, till, freed from oppression, we get the ‘husband’ actually worthy of us… if worthy of Him.

 

One of my children bears the baptismal moniker of Raphael, honoring this marvelous heavenly seraph, a spirit of fire, one of seven --- the Number of God --- who stands constantly in His Presence in Highest Heaven at His Divine Throne, the one Lucifer tried to steal, and which we, Modern Humanity, are trying to steal as well, self-deifying ourselves. Today, unexpectedly, I had the privilege of baptizing a tiny baby into the Kingdom of Heaven. (Entirely lawful for a Catholic to do in necessity, when no lawful or valid priest is available to do so for the child or anyone who is a baptizand and requires the sacramental water… indeed, Holy Mother Church has authorized anyone, in time of need, to baptize, so utterly crucial is this life-giving, regenerative Sacrament!) His parents are giving him the baptismal name of Raphael, too. How appropriate when baptized on St. Raphael’s feast day! A day on the universal sanctoral calendar of the Church for only barely a century now. Lucky us! Catholics, that is.

 

I had a very unique & lucid dream once, right before baptizing someone the next day. In this dream I suddenly descended deep into the bowels of the earth, finding dark caverns, hideous demons, and the damned everywhere. They did not concern me. I was bent on but one thing: finding Lucifer, the head of the demons & damned. I searched every cave, cavern, nook & cranny I could, finally locating him. (The demons & damned, oddly, despite exceeding me by billions, left me alone and did not dare to hinder me.) I then found a large beam of wood in my hands, and, without pause, proceeded to beat the living daylights out of satan. I pummeled him mercilessly, he howling in agony --- and, what hurt him more --- howling in the loss of his precious pride, savaged by a mere human being, still mortal, not even assured of my eternal salvation yet. He ran and I followed. All through the innards of the earth I chased him, like a celestial hound, pounding & brutally thrashing him every few minutes.

 

I cannot express the joy in doing so. In utterly crushing total evil, with glee.

 

But was it really myself doing it? No. Upon waking, the dream was there.

 

I can remember my dreams if I wish, yet I didn’t wish to recall this one. Sometimes I remember the dream unbidden. This invariably means it’s something important, something I need to remember & know. And always, if I ask Heaven for the understanding, it is given immediately. I knew the import of the dream. It was a herald of what was to come.

 

That day I would be baptizing a precious soul. Lucifer would lose; Jesus win.

 

This is the meaning --- by Christ, in Baptism, we beat satan to a pulp.

 

But only through and by Christ’s Victory upon the Cross.

 

Thus the beam of wood in my hands, thrashing him.

 

It is Jesus Victory, not ours. He works through us.

 

For the Greater Glory of the Triune God of Roman Catholicism, Uncreated Creator of All That Exists Out of Nothing and Our Redeemer and Our Comforter, Giving Us, In Spite of Our Unworthiness, the Truth Alone That Saves, His One, Holy, Roman, Catholic & Apostolic Ecclesial Body! May Living Waters of Everlasting Life inundate Our Immortal & Truly Roman Catholic Souls. Amen.

 

  Feast of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, Apostle of Devotion to the Most Sacred & Suffering Heart of King Jesus, 2018 (10-17-18)

 

Another 3 more chapters of Helplessly Ignorant added, bringing the book to Chapter 168.

 

How does Lucifer --- the former ‘light bearer’ --- appear as an ‘Angel of Light’ to Modern Humanity, over what does his actually very dark spirit brood… and what is his ultimate aim, religiously speaking? Read the chapters (as well as anything you’ve missed, or chosen to ignore) to start getting an idea. That is to say, the truth about what’s been going on.

 

Conspiratorial? Yes. Unfounded & irrational? No. Not if you’re wisely Catholic.

 

If truly Roman Catholic, pray for wisdom. It’s one of the Holy Ghost’s gifts.

 

Meanwhile, St. Margaret Mary Alacoque? Oh, I’m glad you asked.

 

St. Margaret Mary was a French Visitation nun during the latter part of the 1600s. Through her, Our Creator chose to reveal Devotion to His Eternally Divine Son’s Sacred Heart; this is why she’s often called the ‘Apostle of the Sacred Heart’. This devotion was known by earlier saints… she wasn’t the first. She’s simply the one through whom God spread it widely.

 

E.g, as a pope noted, Devotion to the Sacred Heart seems enshrined in St. John’s Gospel.

 

The Singular Triune God of His Singular Catholic Church appeared to this holy nun not once, not twice, but thrice --- and all to propagate this devotion to His Son’s Ecclesial Body, Roman Catholics, especially in the ‘heart’ of His One True Church, the nation of France. Yes, three. That number again! As I’m fond of saying in the book posted, nearing conclusion now.

 

What then happened?

 

God required her to communicate to the King of France, through her confessor priest, that he must consecrate his French Kingdom, officially & publicly, to Christ’s Sacred Heart. Per Our Lord, through her, via the confessor priest and any other involved, if the French king would cooperate with this command, then all would be well. France would prosper, without great punishment for its sins (God forgiving them in His Mercy), and the king’s monarchy most securely established, his nation regaining fervency & loyalty to the Catholic Faith.

 

Did the King of France obey? No, he did not. Yes, they made half-hearted attempts to obey in the coming century --- yet no, ultimately, they did not. What next? St. Margaret Mary made her first communication in 1689. One hundred years later, in 1789, the French Revolution transpired. And the French king of that time later lost his head. Literally.

 

Has there been a real king of France since then? No there has not.

 

The import for real Roman Catholics? Take a breath and consider carefully:

 

Our Maker, the Triune God of the Catholic Church, made a similar request of the popes during the early 20th century, via Sr. Lucia, one of three seers of the Apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal in AD 1917. By 1930, when Lucia, through hierarchical channels, had made known Jesus’ command that the pope, along with all of his Catholic bishops throughout the world, should officially & publicly consecrate the nation of Communist Russia (and Russia by name alone!) to God’s Mother’s Immaculate & Sorrowful Heart, the Blessed Ever-Virgin Mary… did these popes obey? No, they did not. Yes, Pope Pius XII made a half-hearted attempt. But not what had truly been commanded. And what did Christ warn them?

 

That if they would not obey then they would suffer the fate of the French kings.

 

Do you see the implications now? St. Peter’s Throne sitting empty & bereft.

 

The Vicar of Christ having ‘lost his head’, as it were --- figuratively.

 

But literally, too, inasmuch as the Body of Jesus is now ‘dead’.

 

That is, in the Tomb, inanimate, enduring punishment.

 

God’s Visible Body having ‘lost’ Her Visible Head…

 

Until God miraculously resurrects It in the future.

 

This is the reality; this is the Great Apostasy.

 

Most Sacred & Suffering Heart of King Jesus, have mercy on us!

 

Most Immaculate & Sorrowful Heart of Queen Mary, pray for us!

 

That good & wise Catholic French kings might be returned to their throne, and that good & wise --- and truly Roman Catholic --- popes might be returned to the Throne of St. Peter in the very near future, a Second Pentecost descending upon us in actuality, the Serpent’s Head crushed and the Singularly Catholic Ecclesial Body of Jesus Christ resurrected. Amen.

 

  Feast of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Ever-Virgin Mary, 2018 (10-7-18)

 

Yet another 3 more chapters of Helplessly Ignorant posted, getting us to Chapter 165.

 

The book is just about done and will conclude with Chapter 180, after the sixth devastating argument against the heretical notion of ‘salvation-in-the-state-of-invincible-ignorance-and-sincerity’ is concluded, and we very quickly state the seventh devastating argument.

 

It will be a literary, logical & liturgical ‘triangulation’, so to speak.

 

In this latest trio of chapters we get into more details of God’s Apocalyptic Parable.

 

Who is the ‘Terrestrial Beast’? And how, and why, is it connected to the Oceanic Beast?

 

This is bringing us to our situation today, of how a Great Apostasy arrived.

 

Long foretold, veiled in parable… and now we’re all living through it.

 

Curious? Determined to save your immortal soul? Then read it.

 

Europe is again nowadays ‘invaded’, as it were, by people of the Religion of Islam. And Modernist Europeans, to their grave discomfort, are finding out that --- while modernized ‘muslims’ are mostly harmless or innocuous to their everyday modernized lives, the more seriously religious (and thus the real thing…) Muslims are definitely NOT.

 

That is to say, these kinds of Muslims despise European culture.

 

And they do not like Christianity, not even the fake kind.

 

Oh, yes, and that tendency for some of them, at least, to go violently jihad and try to annihilate non-Muslim Europeans. Not to mention that, calculating mathematically, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that real Muslims will quickly overcome Europeans numerically, modernized Europeans really not liking to have children or raise families.

 

Meanwhile, real Muslims treasure large families.

 

So who do you think wins? In the end?

 

In AD 1571 the threat was somewhat different. Real Muslims were still trying, mostly militarily, to overcome a still Catholic Europe. Many conflicts over the centuries transpired, the one at Lepanto crucial in ensuring Catholic Europe’s continued existence & safety. All pious Catholics agreed, starting with the Pope, that this triumph was due to Our Lady. Reciting Her Rosary fervently, the unlooked for victory was given to Catholic Europe.

 

We need another such victory today. Europe’s head is on the chopping block.

 

Mary’s Holy Rosary, incidentally is the Celestial Ladder of St. Jacob.

 

By it, real Roman Catholics find a more sure way to Heaven.

 

O Sacred & Suffering Heart of Jesus, have mercy upon us!

 

O Immaculate & Sorrowful Heart of Mary, pray for us!

 

For the Greater Glory of God & His Roman Church.

 

  Feast of St. Jerome the Scholar, Early Church Father & Doctor, as Well as Translator (Old Testament) & Redactor (New Testament) of the Latin Vulgate Bible, the Holy Roman Catholic Church’s Gold Standard of Sacred Scripture, 2018 (9-30-18)

 

Uploaded 3 more chapters of Helplessly Ignorant , taking us to Chapter 162.

 

We begin to explain the ‘seventh head’ of the Apocalyptic Oceanic Beast. First, though, we must figure out where to reasonably draw the line with the ‘sixth head’, which was converted, via God’s Gratuitous & Judicious Graces, to His Singular Roman Catholic Faith. Not that this then made everyone in the Greco-Roman Empire, or its historical offspring, into superb people, who never did anything wrong or foolish. Quite to the contrary.

 

In the end, however, after a couple of millennia and plenty of chances, Christendom --- Catholic nations --- failed. Punished for their bad Catholicity, or anti-Catholicity, the seventh head arose (which is also the ‘eighth’, as St. John’s Apocalypse makes clear), and, by circa AD 1800, this last of the Luciferian manifestations plagues the earth, spreading evil & prevarication.

 

The action, as it were, heads west again, rejecting the east and dawn, source of true light.

 

St. Jerome? Hmmm. Such a man, such a saint. Catholic, learned & so very human.

 

It gives me hope to know that he existed. And prevailed. And blessed us.

 

God’s Inspired Sacred Scripture, his Vulgate… the gold standard.

 

As Trent’s Council infallibly assures us, leaving no doubt.

 

He also staunchly defended Catholic orthodoxy against any heresy. Specifically, he wrote a brilliant treatise explaining & upholding the Blessed Ever-Virgin Mary’s Perpetual Virginity. Yes, all the way back then, prior to the precise middle of the first millennium, someone of a certain notoriety was claiming She had borne ‘children’ after She bore Christ. With the saintliest of men, dear Joseph. Appalled? Repulsed? You ought to be, if truly Catholic.

 

So was St. Jerome. He pounced immediately. And vehemently, as well as logically.

 

Protestants are not the first to come up with this damnable & hellish notion.

 

Let us pounce, too. Upon the Oceanic Beast. It’s not the size that counts.

 

It’s the tenacity and Who upholds you. I’m nothing. You’re nothing.

 

So what? The Triune Catholic God uses nothings. Like you & I.

 

But if we die upon a cross unknown, despised… so what?

 

It’s what we deserve, and the means of our salvation.

 

I’m okay with that. Are you? His Will be done.

 

Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy upon us!

 

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us!

 

World without end, forever, amen.

 

  Feast of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Ever-Virgin Mary, and Octave Day of Her Nativity, as Well as the Feast of St. Nicomedes, Martyr, 2018 (9-15-18)

 

Posted yet another 3 chapters of Helplessly Ignorant , bringing us to Chapter 159.

 

We now essentially complete the explanation & interpretation of the ‘sixth head’ of the Apocalyptic Oceanic Beast, having told how this pagan realm --- the Greco-Roman Empire --- became unexpectedly Roman Catholic, and, enduring for thousands of years, eventually fell into ruin as its inhabitants became worse & worse Catholics, either losing their Catholicity altogether, or else sliding into a lethargic & frivolous state of constant mortality of sin.

 

Fortunately, by God’s Grace, it spread Roman Catholicism throughout the world before it collapsed. And, along with that, it broadcast Western Civilization, too. How so? Because, prior to collapse… and even while it was collapsing… its part of the earth became dominant, influencing other parts of the globe, with its various ethnicities & realms, to some very significant degree or another. In a word, God’s Rome upended the entire world.

 

For good (as good Catholics), and for bad (as bad or fallen away Catholics).

 

Don’t want to scare or intimidate you, but along the way we get musical & numerical, employing the language of musical theory & mathematics to explain more of God’s Apocalyptic Parable. Specifically, how six can be perfectly harmonic… or not.

 

And the feast day, Our Lady’s Sorrows, which are Seven (Divine Number!)?

 

Let’s start with a quick review of these Seven Sorrows:

 

1.) The prophecy of St. Simeon (that a sword would pierce Her Immaculate Soul). 2.) The flight of the Holy Family into Egypt (to escape Herod’s wrath, he trying to murder Her Divine Son, they living in exile in a pagan land). 3.) The loss of Jesus in Jerusalem (as She, His Mother, was stricken with grief at thought of Him come to harm due to any negligence upon Her Part). 4.) Mary’s meeting Her Son, poignantly yet briefly, as He carried His Cross through Jerusalem (knowing He had to die for the world, yet what mother could not weep as her son goes to his death?). 5.) The Crucifixion of Her Son upon the Cross on the Hill of Calvary (He dying in awful agony in front of Her Eyes). 6.) Her Son taken down from the Cross and laid in Her Arms (for what mother would not weep disconsolate as her own son’s dead body, bloodied & bruised, is wrapped in her arms for the last time before he is buried?). 7.) Her Son buried in the Tomb (for, while She knew He would resurrect, this was Her final gaze upon Him Who She bore physically into this world, knowing that She would not be with Him again, in continual contact, till Heaven Above).

 

Pope Pius VII put this feast upon the universal calendar in 1814 as a way of saying ‘thank you’ to the Blessed Ever-Virgin Mother of God, after his release from captivity under an arrogant Napoleon, who kept him isolated & unable to carry out his work as pope from 1809 to 1813. Plainly, he had to have suffered severely from this cross, sympathizing with Our Lady.

 

And St. Nicomedes? A Catholic priest, Emperor Domitian tried to force him to sacrifice to the pagan gods in Rome near the end of the first century. His reply was bold & true --- “For me, I only sacrifice to the all powerful God Who reigns in Heaven.” The import?

 

Like Nicomedes, today in the Great Apostasy we have heathen leaders who, as liberal Modernists, try to force us, if only indirectly, to sacrifice at the demonic altar of self-deifying humanity, worshipping that which is not truly God, or worthy of our worship. We must be willing to die to ourselves like he did, whether in bloody or dry martyrdom.

 

And like the Blessed Virgin Mary, we must bear our sorrows, seven in number, if we wish to reign with Her & Her Son --- Who is God Almighty, King of Kings --- from upon His Throne, which He shares with Her, the Immaculate, and any who are Her Children, good Roman Catholics. Her Son’s Ecclesial Body in the Tomb right now, the Petrine Throne between Ecclesial Monarchs with anti-Catholic antipopes defrauding & seducing the world, we pathetically few disciples bear with Her those Seven Sorrows, seeing Him crucified.

 

Let us weep with Her, and let us mourn. Let us comfort Her with our tears.

 

Let us love Our Mother as does Her Son, and honor Her as does He, also.

 

For it is better to be in a house of mourning than a house of laughter.

 

This life is bittersweet; it is the bitterness that leads to salvation.

 

And to the Resurrection of the Body, and a Life Everlasting.

 

Most Sacred & Suffering Heart of Jesus, have mercy upon us!

 

Most Immaculate & Sorrowful Heart of Mary, pray for us!

 

That we may obtain an incorruptible crown:

 

That we may die, and live again forever.

 

Amen.

 

  Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Ever-Virgin Mary, Mother of the Second Person of God Almighty & Immaculate Queen of Highest Heaven, Conceived Immaculate by the Prevenient Graces of Her Son, God from All of Eternity, 2018 (9-8-18)

 

Happy 2033rd Birthday, Queen Mary!

 

Yes, it really is possible and really is true that you can know the exact age of God’s Mother.

 

This is partly because, calculating carefully & logically from the Gospels in Sacred Scripture, you can make shrewd & intelligent suppositions; and, additionally, with the help of a great saint like Mary of Agreda (a Franciscan nun of the Immaculate Conception, and who wrote lengthily about the ‘hidden lives’ of the Holy Family at the command of her superiors, and with the approval of numerous popes in the 1600s & 1700s, led & inspired by the Celestial Queen), you can have utter moral certainty about various solar calendar dates from two millennia ago, concerning God’s One True Religion of Roman Catholicism.

 

But, if you want to know more, search older What’s New entries 2 or 3 years ago.

 

Meanwhile, we’ve posted another three chapters of Helplessly Ignorant , bringing us to Chapter 156 of this tome. In it, we wax loquacious regarding humanity’s decimality and the beginnings of the Greco-Roman Empire’s divinely inspired & miraculous conversion to the Roman Catholic Faith. May this upload go far in adequately, yet pathetically, honoring Her.

 

A Woman Immaculate, God’s Chosen Vessel, looking not a day over 33 years old.

 

She was, you know, conceived without sin, and thus immune to the Curse of Eve.

 

In other words, death & suffering had no sway over Her. She suffered of Her own free will, in imitation of Her Divine Son. He, in turn, permitted Her to suffer --- but without humiliation subject to His & Her Enemies. She suffered of Her Own Free Will, with His Permission.

 

Yet us, Her spiritual children, if truly Catholic, whole, entire & undefiled?

 

Ah, well, we suffer because we deserve it. And not because we’re ‘holy’.

 

We’re not. We deserve everything we get. Every ounce of pain or fear.

 

Nevertheless, in Her, and through Her, we have certainty --- howsobeit, not arrogant presumption! --- of salvation.

 

Because Her Son is Our Sacrifice, and Roman Catholics are His True Servants.

 

As a result, we gain everlasting Heaven through Her Son, via His Mother. Savvy?

 

It’s ad Jesum per Mariam all the way. There is no other way. Ad astra per Mariam.

 

That is, to the stars --- the heavens --- through God’s Mother. She is the Queen.

 

She is the Immaculate, conceived without any sin. She is the Gate of Heaven.

 

Want to enter this Place after death on earth? Then strive for Her in Heaven while on earth.

 

Via the moon, through the stars, ambitiously yet humbly reach for Her Heavenly Post.

 

Nothing escapes Her Grasp. You will succeed if you trust in Her implicitly.

 

Apart from God’s Mother, you will achieve nothing. Only empty goals…

 

Bereft of any chance to achieve them in reality. She is that important.

 

That imperative, that essential. She is the Crusher of a Snake’s Head.

 

The Great Dragon, Lucifer, Rebel against Our God, and first apostate.

 

See the link? Understand relations? If not, study earlier What’s New…

 

You’ll find more details there. In the meantime, understand these words:

 

Our Lady is the Jacobian Ladder to Heaven Above. Her Rosary, prayed zealously & piously by a real Roman Catholic, is the means to climb unto Heaven, seeing God Face-to-face. Everything till then is --- while important to us on a temporal earth --- no critical matter unto everlastingly perfect grounds forever, apart from what we do here on earth achieving, or failing to achieve, the salvation of our precious & immortal souls. To wit, Roman Catholicism Whole, Entire & Undefiled… precisely as God, Our Uncreated Creator, has decreed.

 

Blessed be the Sacred & Suffering Heart of King Jesus.

 

Blessed be the Immaculate & Sorrowful Heart of Mary.

 

  Feast of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Ever-Virgin Mary, Octave Day of Her Glorious Assumption & Feast of Ss. Timothy, Hippolytus & Symphorian, Martyrs, 2018 (8-22-18)

 

Updated the book, Helplessly Ignorant , with yet another three chapters. We are brought now to the 153rd chapter, and --- believe it or not --- we are nearing the end of this tome. Relatively speaking, of course. By most persons’ standards, there’s still a lot to go. But my standards? Or that of a studious scholar? No… not too much more. Way more of the book as a whole has been posted than there is left to post. Heaven willing, we’ll complete this work ’ere the year closes.

 

In these latest chapters, we get a bit esoteric again. How so? Oh, the Golden Ratio (ϕ), and whatnot. Sound intimidating? Maybe. But I’ll bet you can handle it if you try. By the way, fair warning: you’re going to encounter stuff about pyramids again. Not New Agey, though. Just spiritual, religious, philosophical, mystical (in the Roman Catholic sense), and symbolic.

 

We’re continuing with the explanation of the ‘sixth head’ of the Apocalyptic & Oceanic Beast, though. Ergo, yes, there is a reason… and intelligently so… that we get into these things. Not my doing, just the way Our Creator, the Triune God of the Roman Catholic Church, made it.

 

But the day? This Feast Day, as real Catholics say? What’s that about?

 

As is so often the case, given my limited time & strength, everything was ready to upload on 22 August 2018. Nevertheless, it takes a little more time to get it all in place, and everything doublechecked, making sure it looks & reads the way it’s supposed to. When dealing with complex & long works, that is challenging. Hence the delay and drawn out uploading.

 

To find out about the Assumption of Mary, read the What’s New entry for 15 August 2018.

 

In the meantime, realize that the octave day of this feast (i.e., the seventh day after the feast day itself) was no fluke or lark. The pope who established this feast on the liturgical calendar chose the Octave Day of the Glorious Assumption for a reason. Whether fully conscious or not on his part, it dovetails wonderfully with Our Lady of Fatima, one of the most important Apparitions of Our Lady, Mary, and Whose request, made in AD 1917 and made plain to a pope by AD 1930, still awaits fulfillment at this moment. It involves Consecration to Her Immaculate Heart, though. A devotion that has been spreading throughout Christ’s Catholic Body unceasingly for several centuries now, obviously by God’s Will. Intrigued?

 

Realize, too, that we are exactly 1 year & 1 day past a solar eclipse. To wit, the flabbergastingly beautiful eclipse of 21 August 2017, the first solar eclipse to be seen across the continental United States since AD 1918, the very year after Our Lady of Fatima concluded and the ‘Great War’ (World War I) finished. Mere chance? I don’t think so.

 

It is, additionally, only one day before the next zodiacal sign commences. That is to say, the Sign of Virgo (the Virgin) ends on August 22nd (mind you, we’re talking ‘astrology’ that is real & ancient, NOT the silly superstitious stuff passing for ‘astrology’ lately), and the Sign of Libra (the Scales) begins on August 23rd. Or, to say it another way, we’re being weighed by God. On celestial scales --- to determine how ‘heavy’ or ‘light’ we are, religiously speaking --- in comparison to the Eternal Scale, which is God’s Roman Catholicism Whole & Entire.

 

Sound sobering? It is. Scared at all? Good for you. Hopeless? Not if you’re Catholic.

 

For real. Whole, entire & undefiled. The complete package, all Infallible Teachings.

 

Not the incomplete package sold to us under the guise of ‘orthodoxy’ at Vatican II.

 

That is to say, this pseudo-council, at St. Peter’s Basilica in the 1960s, was a fraud.

 

Shocking? Unbelievable? Not at all. Not if you’re truly Catholic. It’s the Apostasy. To wit, foretold long ago, repeatedly warned about throughout the centuries, particularly in the last few centuries, and undeniably here, right now, given that we have the eyes to see. Viz., a good will, capable of cooperating with God’s Graces, and comprehending what’s going on. In other words, to comprehend that we’re finally living out, in reality, what the Apocalypse has foretold for ages. A terrible rebellion, a horrible self-deification… the Great Apostasy.

 

And Ss. Timothy, Hippolytus & Symphorian?

 

Without getting too ‘complex’ or ‘detailed’, let us realize that it’s martyrdom one way or another. Accordingly, either we die literal martyrs as Roman Catholics, or we die as self-made ‘martyrs’, denying our unruly flesh & grievous temptations. Each of these persons… while separated in time or distance… denied themselves, dying for Christ & His Catholic Faith.

 

Will we do the same? For those of us who are truly Catholic, whole, entire & undefiled?

 

That’s the ultimate test. Do we love this world more, or the world to come?

 

Do we love the Religion of Modernism or the Religion of Catholicism?

 

The Great Apostasy, in the wake of the Vatican II, is a sieve. A visible way to tell if we really are what we say we are. Will we imitate the martyrs? Or make ‘compromises’? Time will tell. I pray you make the right choice. Martyrdom is precious; Catholicism right. The correct choice? Roman all the way. The real kind, not Novus Ordosim. Vatican II was a sham. Satanically.

 

Shocking? Only if you’re in love with the modern world & modern thought.

 

If Catholic, then no. It’s okay. Okay to politely defy an entire earth.

 

Why? Because Truth triumphs over Lie.

 

Jesus beats Lucifer, Mary trounces him.

 

And God commands us… and expects us to obey, despite an Apostasy. Want to please Our Creater? Then heed His True Religion, Roman Catholicism, and honor His Mother, the Blessed Ever-Virgin Mary. You’re eternally safe this way. Outside of a real & visible Roman Catholic Church, no salvation. Outside the state of grace, no merciful Creator. We invoke His Mercy through His Singular Religion and via His Immaculate Mother. And through Her Rosary, which is a precious lifeline, Her Marian Psaltery. Understand, beloved one?

 

You will, one way or another, eventually. I pray for you immortal soul.

 

With Divine Love I wish you the best --- that you become Catholic.

 

Blessed be the Sacred Hearts of Jesus & Mary forever, amen.

 

  Feast of the Glorious Assumption of the Blessed Ever-Virgin Mary, Mother of the Second Person of God Almighty, 2018 (8-15-18)

 

Posted yet another three chapters of Helplessly Ignorant , bringing us to Chapter 150 in Part Six. We continue with understanding the mysterious but surprisingly knowable & influential Greeks, who constitute --- along with those redoubtable Romans --- the sixth head of an Oceanic Beast, the Greco-Roman Empire. Again, technically, the upload came somewhat following midnight of that evening; nevertheless, all was ready, and I’d only to find the moments to actually do so. Plus, the symbolism is gorgeous & irresistable.

 

For what is Her Glorious Assumption?

 

Roman Catholics have for millennia believed in this tradition, that She was assumed (taken up) by God into Heaven both body & soul. That is to say, She died a bit earlier (most likely on August the 13th), at Her request, wanting to imitate Her Son in everything, including His Holy Death. God permitted this, although He would not permit Her to be mocked & mutilated like He. What loyal Son would let His Mother be treated like this, if in His Power to stop it?

 

The point is, tradition also preserves for us that She asked for all the Twelve Apostles to be present at Her Death. St. James the Greater having been, with certainty, martyred many years earlier (Blessed Mary lived till around 70 or 72), this means at least one of them had to be brought down to earth from Heaven Above to do so. The rest who were still alive on earth experienced the Holy Ghost Express, being brought to Jerusalem and the Cenacle, or ‘upper room’, where Her soul passed from this life, in a trice. Too, we have some reason to believe Apostle St. Paul partook in this wondrous event. Per one account, She looked not a day over 33, and as clear as glass. (Remember, She was NOT conceived in Original Sin, ergo, the maledictions of aging, illness, injury & death were not required of Her to suffer.) Upon passage from earth, they carried Her Holy Body to a nearby tomb, where, per ancient memory, those praying at Her Tomb could hear the angels chant for 40 hours (i.e., as transpired with Her Son in His Tomb, across 3 days, counting inclusively).

 

At the end of this blessed period, Her Immaculate Soul descended from Heaven and resumed its inhabitance of Her Equally Immaculate Body, and, the two reunited, She was assumed Body & Soul into Highest Heaven, there to occupy Her Regal Throne as Queen of Highest Heaven and Queen of Her Most Holy Rosary forevermore.

 

This feast is so important that it has an octave:

 

And the eighth day of this octave, August 22nd, is the Feast of Her Immaculate Heart.

 

Lastly, though believed by many and then most Catholics for millennia, it was only infallibly, explicitly & solemnly confirmed, with Highest Authority on Earth, by Pope Pius XII in AD 1950. It has been only two thirds of a century since this even has been infallibly confirmed. Right before the Great Apostasy broke out into the open with the Vatican II Pseudo-Council and the 1960s, the Triune God of the Roman Catholic Church gave us this Lovely Gift.

 

May more Celestial Gifts come soon. God knows how we need them!

 

Most Sacred & Suffering Heart of Jesus, have mercy upon us!

 

Most Immaculate & Sorrowful Heart of Mary, pray for us!

 

Ad Jesum per Mariam, Stella Splendens!

 

  Feast of St. Elizabeth, the Holy Queen of Portugal, 2018 (7-8-18)

 

Posted next three chapters of Helplessly Ignorant , bringing us to Chapter 147 in Part Six. We tie up the observations about what the parable & symbolism of the Oceanic Beast in the Apocalypse means when it comes to numbers & geometry, including the significance of the ‘character’ or ‘mark’ of the Beast. Then we turn our attention back to the sixth of this Beast’s seven heads, reminding our readers that we start by examining the Greek realm established by the redoubtable Alexander the Great.

 

It is indeed a good day to post this.

 

True, I did not have time to update What’s New till two days later, and upload a day later yet.

 

Nonetheless, I did indeed add the three chapters to Part Six, which was fairly simple.

 

This St. Elizabeth is from Portugal, their most renowned Queen ever. And Portugal is where the Queen of Highest Heaven decided to appear to three small & poor shepherd children, this being the 101st anniversary of Her Six Apparitions to them, beginning with May 13 and ending on October 13 with the Miracle of the Sun, doing so the 13th of every month between (August excepted, since a nearby Freemasonic mayor literally kidnapped & imprisoned them; howsoever, Our Dauntless Celestial Queen merely met them in jail on August 19).

 

The point?

 

If you count inclusively and pray a novena (nine days straight the same prayers, with a heavenly petition the whole time), starting on July 8 with St. Elizabeth’s feast, then your novena will end upon July 16, which is the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. Anyone who knows about Fatima knows that Our Lady of Fatima made it clear, via the Brown Scapular, that She linked Herself to this glorious title of Hers and promoted the Brown Scapular as one of several powerful means of obtaining Heaven’s Graces as a Roman Catholic.

 

And on the sixth day of this novena --- two thirds of the way through, as it were --- from July 8 to July 16, is July 13th. Reinforcing the theme of threes & thirds, this is the third (number three) of Fatima’s Six Apparitions; and, as made clear in the recently completed book, Inter Regnum, Our Lady of Fatima showed the three children a shocking & horrifying vision of hell at the center of our spherical earth upon the day of Her Visit with them. She then imparted to them three ‘secrets’. The first was revealed publicly right away. The second was revealed much later, but made public, too. Both proved true, involving World War One and World War Two. The third was supposed to be released publicly in 1960 --- only the Vatican of that time, under John XXIII, suppressed it. The Novus Ordo Vatican in 2000 pretended to release Fatima’s Third Secret, yet highly learned & accredited journalists have proven, beyond a doubt, that this release was bogus, being, instead, the prophetic vision that accompanied the Third Secret… and not the Third Secret itself. Why all this skullduggery & flimflammery? Read Inter Regnum to find out some of the answers.

 

In the meantime, know that this is a beautiful symmetry. The Great Apostasy will end.

 

We’re over half the way through. Yet hell licks at our feet, and a huge debt is owed.

 

It’s almost time to pay it. The drums of war beat in the background.

 

St. Elizabeth of Portugal was known for her peacemaking.

 

Catholics should pray for her reconciliatory help.

 

And prepare for a very different world soon.

 

Vero, veritas vincit.

 

  Feast of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist, 2018 (6-24-18)

 

Uploaded the relatively short article (not quite fifteen pages if printed out in hardcopy, and a mere three chapters altogether…) called True Diversity: What Authentic Diversity Means, and How a False ‘Diversity’ Has Become One of Many Idols Befogging Our Feeble Minds Today. Not strictly & solely ‘religious’ --- that is, Catholic --- but, then, Roman Catholicism is universal, remember? Both literally (the title ‘Catholic’ comes from Greek ‘katholicos’, meaning ‘universal’ and telling us how any real Catholic must hold the actual Roman Catholic Faith whole, entire & undefiled, universally, that is, everywhere a Catholic is, in the original & unchanging sense of every teaching) and figuratively (I mean, Catholics worship the One True God Who made everything out of nothing, ergo, truly, Catholicism has something to say about everything… and whether overtly ‘religious’ or not!).

 

But don’t worry. If truly Catholic, the article is still Roman Catholic.

 

Yet a non-Catholic could read it, too, and benefit despite not being Catholic.

 

As the title says, and suggests, it’s now time to resist the tyranny of anti-Catholic --- and anti-traditional-anything when it comes to religion or morality --- leaders who are beginning to seriously oppress us all. Not that I’m advocating war or violence. I’m not! I just mean, we desperately need to wake up, realize what an authentic diversity is, see through all the terminology & obfuscation or ‘labels’ used by Modernists and politely push back.

 

Accordingly, courteously demand the ‘right’ for our ‘religious liberty’.

 

In the United States it’s constitutionally guaranteed.

 

And if enough people don’t stand up, well:

 

Welcome to brutal tyranny. Enjoy!

 

I don’t claim to be a saint. I’m absolutely pathetic compared to John the Baptist. But he was a herald for the Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the Divine Founder of the Singularly Saving Roman Catholic Church. I cry in the wilderness like him. I claim no specially given ‘prophetic mission’ like Our Lord granted to him. I’m just a bad Catholic, yet a real one.

 

But, oh, how beautiful this article is ready to post on his holy birthday.

 

Oh, Lord, if it is worthwhile, let it be all for You Alone.

 

My Celestial Lady, use it as You will, or not.

 

Only help me save my immortal soul.

 

And may souls of others, too.

 

In the One & Only Roman Catholic Religion.

 

Outside of which, absolutely no one can ever hope to enter Heaven.

 

That’s all I ask; that’s all I dare; that’s all I really want for any human soul anywhere.

 

Glória Patri et Fílio et Spirítui Sancto. Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper, et in saécula saeculórum. Amen.

 

  Feasts of Corpus Christi & the Blessed Ever-Virgin Mary, Mediatrix of All Her Monarchic Son’s Graces, as Well as the Queen of Highest Heaven, 2018 (5-31-18)

 

How lovely today that Our Lord & Lady are joined together in perfect liturgical harmony! Mother & Son, Celestial King & Queen, the Second Adam & His Second Eve, the Sacred & Suffering Heart of Jesus with the Immaculate & Sorrowful Heart of Mary. And in Her month, the month of May… at the very end, the thirty-first day. This happens on rare occasion, but, due to Pentecost being a ‘moveable’ feast (which, in turn, depends on the all-important, highest of all of the Church’s feasts, Easter, which is ever-moving), it is indeed rare. And, granted, Her feast is not yet universal. But it is local, and many dioceses throughout the world, prior to the Great Apostasy, have had their diocesan bishop approve it for this day. Which is why I mention it. How could I not, who have so much to owe Her, to Whom the world belongs, and, without Whom, none of us could ever find salvation as Roman Catholics? She is, truly, the Co-Redemptress & Mediatrix of All Her Son’s Graces, as He delights in honoring Her.

 

For tiny me, though? Just the day I post a tiny little article. Which is?

 

How to Get a Pope During the Great Apostasy.

 

I have no delusions of grandeur (well, hopefully I don’t… I want to be a good Catholic). My lilliputian efforts will never ‘change’ the world or ‘save’ anybody. But I do love truth, and the Saving Truth above all things, which is One, Holy, Roman, Catholic & Apostolic alone out of all the world’s religions & philosophies. They are false --- and even if they have a lot of truth within them --- by virtue of one substantial fact. That no other religion is the One True Religion, that this Religion is Infallible and must be held whole, entire & undefiled, and, additionally, that there really is no Salvation outside the Roman Catholic Church, this infallible dogma understood in its ancient, original, strict, correct & unchanging sense.

 

That no one has wanted to believe in it properly during the Great Apostasy is the crux of the Apostasy --- it’s why the Great Apostasy came upon us in the first place, and it’s what makes this Apostasy ‘great’. As in, huge, mammoth, utterly destructive, blinding and practically unprecedented. It’s up to Our Creator to decide when to end it, it being our penalty for denying His One True Religion, or living it horribly with no penance or contrition, for centuries on end. It’s the Amos Curse, the worse thing that could happen to us, worse, infinitely, than wars, plagues, famine or other catastrophes.

 

Will this little article undo all that? No. Not by itself. But it’s necessary.

 

The Great Apostasy will end at some point --- and, if I’m not mistaken --- we’re over half the way through this Apostasy now. Real Roman Catholics are pitifully few, it’s true. Yet we must be prepared, as the opportunities arise and God enables us, to seize the day. And one major piece in ending the Apostasy is getting a real & legitimate pope back, one who is truly Catholic (not the fake anti-Catholic antipopes we’ve been enduring since Vatican II).

 

It’s a tiny little thing, very brief, very short. But if it helps real Catholics know how to seize that moment… how to go about properly & rightly returning a Catholic pope to his throne --- the Throne of St. Peter --- well, then, alright. That’s all I dare to hope for. It’s in Mary’s Hands.

 

May Her Immaculate Heart overcome all, especially in converting poor Russia to Roman Catholicism, the One True Religion they left so long ago. May She crush the Serpent’s Head and vanquish all heresies, schisms & false religions. May She bring Her servant, Her Son’s Vicar, back to his throne, crown him with the Papal Tiara, and bind the Ancient Dragon, giving us, and the world, a short period of rest & restoration, before the very end.

 

We wrap ourselves in Your Mantle, O Virgin of Virgins.

 

Seat of Wisdom, Help of (True & Roman) Christians.

 

Tower of David, clothed in the sun… Your Son.

 

A twelve spangled Zodiacal Crown on Your Head.

 

Remember Your children, both here now and to come.

 

And succor the poor souls in Purgatory. Ad Jesum per Mariam.

 

  Ember Wednesday after Pentecost, 2018 (5-23-18)

 

Essentially completed the Inter Regnum book, making last posts for it. Yes, tweaking & adjusting did take another 4 to 5 days, due to my duties, labors & limited strength or time… nevertheless, the book is now finished. As a final inspiration, I added an Afterward, which is composed of three chapters. Symbolism yet again, for I had envisioned Inter Regnum as an ‘octave of octaves’, made up of fifty chapters. Fifty, of course, for those who know Sacred Scripture, is the Jubilee Year. With the addendum of three chapters appended, we now complete everything like a Rosary, typically prayed with 53 Hail Marys overall.

 

Howsoever, Ember Wednesday after Pentecost? The significance of this?

 

True Catholics with wisdom await a ‘Second Pentecost’. It is now the 101st year of Our Lady of Fatima; all four sins that cry out for vengeance from Heaven are committed everywhere on earth, although particularly in our own most modernized part of the world; and, as Inter Regnum makes indisputably plain, God punishes humanity with the Amos Curse and wretched ‘catholics’ with an extensive ‘interregnum’ of St. Peter’s Throne, with the most virulent of anti-Catholic frauds pretending to occupy the Petrine Throne, being antipopes.

 

The outcome?

 

Whether it’s this year, next year, ten years from now, or twenty years from now --- cleansing of Church & Earth are almost here. I am no prophet, I claim no special gift. Yet it wouldn’t at all surprise me, when all is said & done, that two-thirds of the earth’s population is gone. In the meantime, God can easily --- and miraculously --- reestablish a real pope upon his throne.

 

It’s that easy for God. Read the book to get some clues.

 

Every day in the Octave of Pentecost corresponds with one of the Seven Gifts of the Holy Ghost. The first is Wisdom. The second is Understanding. The third is Counsel. And the fourth, today, Wednesday, is Fortitude. It takes Wisdom to see why the Triune God of the Catholic Church punishes us. Understanding to comprehend how He is doing so. Counsel to figure out what it is we, who are few yet truly Roman Catholic, must do during this terrible time. And Fortitude to endure, when all the earth seems frozen & cold, nothing but hatred, murder & abomination in every direction we look, even in our own miserable lives.

 

An ember day is a day of fasting & abstinence. For our sins, and to win mercy from God and glory in Heaven. Today is especially poignant, as the entire world stands on the precipice of fasting & abstinence for its many, many, many sins. Yet do we dare to think that we, few as we are, but truly Catholic, deserve anything less? To whom much is given, much more is required. Therefore, let us humbly acknowledge ourselves the worst sinners of all... accordingly, let us suffer everything we suffer with holy resignation.

 

Knowing that it is the least we deserve. And that God is merciful not to do more.

 

Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me, a sinner!

 

Who am the worst of all, the least of everyone.

 

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners…

 

Now, and at the hour of our death. May it be holy

 

And from out of a Holy Death, may Life Everlasting spring.

 

  Feast & 101st Anniversary of the 1st Apparition of Our Lady of Fatima; Feast of St. Robert Bellarmine, Doctor, Bishop & Expert Apologist of the One & Only True Roman Catholic Church; 1408th Anniversary of the Official Dedication of the Roman Pantheon as the ‘Panangelon’ Honoring the Blessed Ever-Virgin Mary & All Martyrs (as Well as, Later, All Saints & Angels, albeit on a Different Date); and the 10th Anniversary of the 1st Page Posted of ‘The Epistemologic Works’ Website with ‘Mary Exalted’ as Its Primary Text and Our Lady of Guadalupe Its Primary Patron, 2018 (5-13-18)

 

Uploaded eight more chapters of Inter Regnum, being the whole of Part Five and the final remainder of the entire book. (Technically, due to the duties, crosses & labors that I endure --- not to mention the intricacies of coding the writings involved and making sure everything jives perfectly --- I got the first six of the eight remaining chapters fully posted, with the last two nearly ready and nearly posted by midnight of this day.)

 

This is the 101st anniversary of the 1st Apparition of Our Lady of Fatima, which, I suspect, will be Her official feast day in the not-too-distant future. Meanwhile, there is, strictly speaking, nothing morally wrong with a Catholic calling it Her ‘feast day’ as long as said Catholic doesn’t, foolishly, behave as if every other Catholic must agree and act accordingly. I consequently don’t say this thinking it ‘official’. I just want to honor Her under this precious title of ‘Our Lady of Fatima’. And, truly, it is the 101st anniversary of the 1st of Her Six Apparitions at Fatima in Portugal. A date and a time with both historic & apocalyptic import.

 

Secondly, this is indeed the Feast of St. Robert Bellarmine. A man who a pope back then called the greatest theological mind of the Church. He was a Jesuit (indeed, the confessor priest of St. Aloysius Gonzaga), the leading apologetic defender of Roman Catholicism against the very puerile yet lethal threat & spread of the Heresy & Rebellion of Protestantism, and a thinker who, surprisingly enough, considered seriously the implications of a pope ceasing to be Catholic. Not that he thought God would let it happen --- but he did seriously ponder it, correctly concluding that Catholics must oppose such a false leader, and that he would automatically lose his papal office along with his membership in the Catholic Church.

 

Thirdly, it has been 1408 years since a pope, in AD 610, officially dedicated the Pantheon in Rome (formerly the pagans’ place for honoring ‘all the gods’, in case they overlooked or had missed one of them, incurring their wrath), making it, instead, into a ‘Panangelon’ to honor God’s Mother, the Virgin Mary, and All of the Martyrs, till, a few centuries later, it became symbolic of honoring every Saint & Angel in Heaven, thereby achieving (as it were) the same thing, in principle, as the ancient pagans. But for a right reason, of course. That the Church on Earth not neglect the veneration of any of God’s Children in Heaven, honoring them rightly & highly for their holiness & perfection. In this way, too, pleasing God, Who is pleased when His Children on Earth love & honor His Children in Heaven. This dedication, by the way, was emblematic of Catholicism’s Victory Over Paganism. A victory indicated by Our Lady of Fatima, foreshadowing the Great Apostasy that we endure at this very moment, whilst, simultaneously, guaranteeing that the Church would triumph again in the near future.

 

And, fourth, it is as well the tenth anniversary of the first page uploaded for ‘The Epistemologic Works’ website. True, on 31 March 2008, I bought the domain name and selected a provider, so that the potential web surfer (had he or she thought to look up the extremely peculiar & lengthy URL…) could go to the site and see that something was on its way. And, by 2 May 2008, the Feast of St. Athanasius, I had finished the first half of the book, Mary Exalted, with the intent of posting it to the homepage, which place it occupies to this very day, if one scrolls down a little ways (although it also has its own page now, in the Books & Articles section). Nevertheless, on 13 May 2008, I posted the homepage. Then, and only then, could a potential reader actually peruse anything at all on this strange site, called ‘The Epistemologic Works’. All these dates were significant (please go to the What’s New concerning 31 March 2018 to find out what was so important about March 31 in that extraordinarily exceptional year, liturgically speaking, of 2008), and none of them, I adamantly assure you, were chosen randomly or meaninglessly. I don’t claim to have intelligence adequate to figure everything out on my own --- nor do I dare to claim that heavenly intelligences are so favorable to me that they would help me out in keeping the symbolism pristine --- but I am compelled to claim that the symbolism is no accident. It is purposeful, and, if pleasing to Heaven, it will play its role, with a lasting, spiritual import.

 

In any case, the book, Inter Regnum, is now complete. If you have the audacity to think, without really thinking about it --- or the audacity to think, thinking wrongly about it, regardless --- that God does not, cannot or will not allow His Church to suffer occasional gaps between legitimate popes of a surprisingly long amount of time, or confusion about the same, poor Catholics not knowing for sure, with moral certainty, who is actually the pope (sometimes spectacularly wrong about who is the true pope, even!), then, my poor, poor, poor reader, the opportunity to banish your ignorance and learn the truth is here. All it takes is a little perseverance, a dose of humility, and (mayhap) a strong effort to think correctly.

 

At any rate, it’s now up to you, with God’s Help.

 

I trust that you humbly want the truth.

 

If not, then the devil has thoughtfully provided… even under the guise of traditionally religious and ‘catholic’ looking apps or social media or etc., etc… plenty of things to occupy your time and mind, using up your earthly life, until, when it comes time for you to die, you may, with some degree of shock & hatred, discover that your choice of pre-occupation was… shall we say?... not actually the wisest use of your time that you could have made.

 

I don’t claim to be the most fantastic writer. Perchance I’m really horrible. And reading isn’t exactly a popular activity amongst most people nowadays. I also don’t claim to have made this site, or written what I’ve composed, with the most average of people in mind. Not that I reject such people. I welcome you heartily! I just knew, when I started, that I hadn’t the time or strength or patience to write (or make a social media presence) for the average person. Notwithstanding, I also know that the average person can, with a little tenacity, grasp what I’m saying in spite of the ‘big words’ or ‘long sentences’ or ‘complicated sounding’ ideas & observations. You just have to want to understand. Yet that’s not the main point. I very purposely aimed for the not-so-average person, who, in turn, could then kindly help an ordinary person to understand. ¿Comprende? You plant a seed and reap a bigger harvest. Whither the Infallible Truth? Will anyone today, during the Great Apostasy, want to know, want to comprehend, whether average or not? Will Christ find, when He returns, the One & Only Saving Roman Catholic Faith remaining upon the earth? (Luke 18:8b) That is an open question at this point in time. Nonetheless, I am confident that, however few we are, God’s Roman Catholic Church is present --- and I mean in person, not mere theory. Too, I am confident that He intends to resurrect His Ecclesial Body. The end is near; but not yet.

 

Whither the Infallible Truth, then? Whence the Kingdom of Heaven on earth?

 

Jesus is literally King of Earth. Yet His Rule begins in a human heart.

 

Ad Jesum per Mariam. Extra Ecclesiam nulla Salus.¡Viva Cristo Rey!

 

  Feast of St. George the Dragonslayer, 2018 (4-23-18)

 

Posted eight more chapters of Inter Regnum, giving us Part Four as a whole.

 

In these chapters we state the sixth devastating argument against the position of “it’s-simply-‘impossible’-God-would-allow-surprisingly-long-gaps-between-legitimate-popes-or-massive-confusion-over-the-same-for-awhile.” In doing so, we slay the dragon of skepticism & unbelief, whether from those who consider themselves Catholic (but may not be truly so…) or from those who turn to Modernist religion & philosophy, under the guise of ‘science’, pretending we’ve dispensed with the need of a real ‘truth’ or absolute epistemologic frame of reference.

 

The upshot?

 

There’s been a concerted attack on Roman Catholicism since the mid-1800s.

 

No one who knows Catholicism or studies history can honestly deny this. And the source of this battle is not merely earthly; it is spiritual. There is a real Dragon and he has a very real beef against the Triune God of the Roman Catholic Faith, and he has been allowed to test, humiliate & purge the Church in a vicious way for some four generations. That cruel trial is coming to an end, but Lucifer will certainly still have some more confusion and more cruelty before everything is put in place for a truly apocalyptic climax… and a far more pleasant dénouement. At least for those who wind up on the right side of history --- which always means, when you’re truly Catholic, the right side of the Creator.

 

St. George, millennia ago, faced a dragon, too. This one was of the more pedestrian type (as opposed to the Ancient Dragon, Lucifer), yet most Modernists, curiously, don’t want to believe in dragons anymore, either. Hence why Catholics --- as they’ve been Modernized over the last three centuries, especially among the learned --- have less and less over the past two or three centuries chosen to know about or believe in St. George’s very real dragonic foe.

 

George killed his dragon with the Sign of the Cross, a lance and courage.

 

It will take the same for the few remaining Roman Catholics today.

 

The Sign of the Cross and courage we can have as he did in his day; our lance is the Infallible Dogmas of the Roman Catholic Religion Whole & Entire. It is with this that we may slay the Ancient Dragon facing us now… with God’s Help, through the Sign of the Cross, which He will offer as He sees fit and when He sees fit. We wait on Him --- He does not wait on us.

 

St. George, by your simple yet whole & entire Catholic Faith, and by your prayers & intercessions, may we, too, slay Lucifer, the Liar, with infallible truth. May this infallible frame of reference provide an unerring compass for our directions and our aim, which is always his head, whence comes his poison. Like St. Judith decapitating a wicked & boastful Holofernes, we seek to decapitate our foe, the devil & his demons. As he is a liar, we combat him with veracity. Truly, veritas. The pagan Romans had their ‘goddess of truth’, a daughter of Saturn, that most golden, lustrous & beautiful of heavenly orbs. We have Our Word of Truth, True God & True Man, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. And we have His Queen Mother, greatest of all God’s creatures, whose Graceful Head towers from Mt. Cynthia through the Harvest Gate of Kronos and on into the highest heavens, where Our Lord has crowned Her with the Tiara of Twelve Constellations. May we have your heavenly support and become the sole of Our Celestial Mother’s Foot, by which this Dragon’s head and poisonous mendacity is crushed.

 

Most Sacred & Suffering Heart of King Jesus, have mercy on us! Most Immaculate & Sorrowful Heart of Queen Mary, pray for us! All you blessed Saints, Angels, Virgins & Martyrs in Heaven, pray for us! That we might work with pure hearts, pure minds & pure truth.

 

Extra Ecclessiam nulla Salus. Amen.

 

  Feast of the Annunciation, 2018 (4-9-18)

 

Uploaded two more chapters of Inter Regnum, completing Part Three.

 

In these two chapters we state the fifth devastating argument with firmness. Just as Christ suffered five wounds during His Crucifixion, so, too, like Her Master, the Roman Catholic Church --- His Singular Ecclesial Body --- has suffered Her Crucifying Wounds during the Great Apostasy, for which the Queen of Heaven, His Blessed Mother, appeared on earth, sorrowful, to warn two French children in La Salette of the religious terrors to come.

 

In other words, for anyone who was listening (and it would seem hardly anyone was paying attention at the time, and, if they took the warning seriously, could not… or would not… comprehend it correctly), God through the Blessed Virgin Mary and these two unlikely messengers warned us, loud & clear, that imminent evil & terrifying punishment was upon us.

 

That is, if you have the ears to hear.

 

To wit, the willingness and the ability --- along with celestial graces.

 

It’s not too late now. Or, should we say, the hour is indeed late and evil reigns throughout the world… but, if truly Catholic and truly humble… we can still look back to a heavenly message less than two centuries ago that assures us Our Creator is in full control.

 

And that He foreknew, and permitted, this great chastisement to transpire.

 

It may be frightening, it may be horrifying, yet it is NOT ‘unthinkable’.

 

God warned us, and, if willing to warn, willing also to protect…

 

If we will simply believe, trust & obey.

 

That’s Roman Catholicism.

 

Today is the Feast of the Annunciation. St. Gabriel the Archangel came to earth in order to give a message to the Blessed Ever-Virgin Mary. That She, despite Her Purity & Virginity, would bear God in Her Virginal Womb, clothing Him with Her Immaculate Flesh.

 

This is the most flabbergasting honor and cross anyone could receive.

 

This same Mary announces to us the Passion of Her Son.

 

Except, this time, via His Body, the Catholic Church.

 

As She wept at La Salette, we weep with Her:

 

For in the Joy of True Faith is True Sorrow.

 

Only thus is God’s True Glory attained.

 

Let us weep with Her over our sins, pray for God’s Mercy, carry our crosses with holy resignation, trust Him to strengthen & enlighten us, and wrap ourselves in Her Mantle. A Mantle of Motherly Protection that can only be had through Her Son’s Roman Catholic Religion Whole & Entire. None of us deserve Divine Mercy (I certainly don’t!); notwithstanding, everyone who is truly Catholic must seek this Mercy.

 

And seeking God’s Mercy, we must be merciful to others.

 

This means loving fellow Catholics --- or how else shall we prove ourselves His Children? --- and begging for the conversion & salvation of as many human souls as is possible, and in spite of the massive religious darkness upon humanity. Yet, sometimes, this charity for humanity during the Great Apostasy means telling the truth religiously. Which, since humanity during modern times has chosen to hate, means in turn that we, who tell Catholicism to them, will draw their hatred down upon us.

 

This is the Fiery Maw of the Dragon.

 

This is Bestial Madness.

 

It is, too, our cross.

 

If we would be conceived in Mary’s Womb with Her Son, then we must be that Holy Conception on earth. We must announce the Annunciation all over again, professing Roman Catholicity Whole & Entire, and, whatever our temporal fate, say along with Mary, “You see the lowest of Your servants before You. Be it done unto me according to Your Will.” Apart from this humble obedience & childlike trust, we cannot save our immortal souls. The modern world is only too willing to sacrifice invisible eternity for what is visible & transitory. Will we, the lowest, charitably defy them, sacrificing for the eternal?

 

It ends on the Hill of the Skull; every one of us dies in Adam’s Original Sin.

 

The Second Adam, together with His Second Eve, undoes this fate.

 

Yet we must die with Them in order to live with Them.

 

Will we stand with Jesus & Mary? Will we?

 

We must ask, seek & knock. Will we?

 

Or will we cling to this world?

 

I know it seems impossible. Given how wicked I am, it is impossible! But with the Triune God of the Roman Catholic Church, all things are possible even my salvation and the relinquishing of this earth without trying to cling to that which falls from our hands.

 

May the Sacred & Suffering Heart of Christ Jesus, along with the Immaculate & Sorrowful Heart of His Blessed Mother, give us the clean hearts and right spirit within our bowels to do that which we are otherwise unwilling to do. To freely open our hands and let this earth slip from our grasp, thereby reaching for Heaven and attaining that which is beyond grasp. Provided we are truly Roman Catholic and seek the Kingdom of Heaven.

 

While here on earth, even in the midst of the Great Apostasy.

 

Alleluia, amen.

 

  Feast of Holy Saturday, and the Martyrdom of St. Amos the Prophet, 2018 (3-31-18)

 

Posted latest five chapters of the new book, Inter Regnum.

 

Inter Regnum now continues through Chapter 32, giving us the entirety of the fourth devastating argument. And this argument is? That God permitted His Own Self to die, murdered, at the hands of mere human beings. Furthermore, that it is ancient, attestable tradition, that earliest Christians --- at least the wiser ones --- knew quite well how God, determining this from All of Eternity, decided to allow His Church to die near the end.

 

Just like Jesus Christ of Nazareth, briefly, yet really & truly in the Flesh near the end.

 

Hence, why is it ‘unthinkable’ that the death of His Ecclesial Body, the Roman Catholic Church, might be happening right now, starting with the notorious & pertinacious apostasy of all of the bishops (and the pope then, with undeniably public ‘solemnity’, appearing as if he ‘officially upheld’ teachings that were in plain, inarguable & shocking contradiction to previous infallible & explicit teaching, as if the Roman Catholic Church Herself could somehow ‘change’ unchangeable dogma? As if the original sense can be contradicted?

 

This is now the beginning of Part Three of Inter Regnum.

 

We have uploaded it on Holy Saturday, right before Easter Sunday.

 

The significance? The Great Apostasy is now at its own ‘Holy Saturday’.

 

Christ’s Roman Catholic Body has now been ‘dead’ for a whole ‘day’.

 

She is lifeless & inanimate, with no Hierarchy, hardly anyone left.

 

Hardly anyone truly Roman Catholic Whole & Entire, that is.

 

Just like the feast today, the 2nd day of the Easter Triduum.

 

Christ in the Tomb for a full day, lifeless, on a Saturday.

 

Hope is ‘lost’, disciples in shock & horror, paralyzed.

 

Likewise any tiny, confused --- yet real --- Catholics today.

 

We are shocked & bereft, confused, like the disciples of old, our dreams shattered.

 

It is also the day of the Martyrdom of St. Amos the Prophet. He delivered the words of Almighty God to a mostly unbelieving & disobedient membership of the Old Testament Church. People who refused to listen, refused to obey, and consequently paid the price.

 

One of his warnings is that the True God would curse them with a spiritual famine.

 

A famine of His Word, they unable to find His Catholic Faith whole & entire.

 

Not that they cared much… they were perfectly content going to hell.

 

Just as long as they could have some ‘good times’ here on earth!

 

The Island of Earth is in similar straits today --- utterly lost.

 

Like the Island of Ireland prior to St. Patrick’s arrival.

 

Happy with a neo-pagan druidic darkness.

 

Happy to serve demonic gods, and themselves.

 

He lit a Paschal Fire in defiance of their pagan gods on Holy Saturday.

 

Meanwhile, the Sword of Damocles hangs over the apostate head of everyone on earth.

 

Afraid? We all are without knowing why. Or, rather, we make up all kinds of ‘reasons’ for our fears. Fears that may be real --- yet ‘fears’ that explain away and ignore the primary fear at the root of it all... that we are wicked, that we are rebellious, that we are anti-Catholic and hence anti-Christ, and that we are now facing, with bitter certainty, His Divine Wrath.

 

Unless, of course, we seize His Divine Mercy before it is too late.

 

The choice is yours, dear soul. It always has been.

 

Choose wisely. That’s why I’m here.

 

To point the way, and encourage.

 

The rest is up to you; and God.

 

And God’s Mother, Mary.

 

Not much time is left.

 

Ecce! Veritas vincit.

 

Oh, and it is the 10th Anniversary of The Epistemologic Works website today. Exactly one decade ago, this very day, I formally began The Epistemologic Works with purchase of the domain name and selection of the host or provider. It was the Feast of the Annunciation in 2008. An unusual year since the Annunciation is typically on March 25. Likewise 2018. Annunciation’s Feast transpires on April 9 (in both cases, this later date occurs because, otherwise, the Feast would take place during Holy Week, the ultimate week of Lent).

 

Symbolism? As always. We announce God’s Truth in an Apostate Wilderness.

 

His First Advent nearly 2000 years ago; His Second Advent almost here.

 

Again, the Voice cries out for anyone to hear… Ecce! Veritas vincit.

 

  Feast of St. Patrick the Irish Apostle, 2018 (3-17-18)

 

Posted next five chapters of the new book, Inter Regnum.

 

Inter Regnum now goes to Chapter 27, completing the third devastating argument.

 

What argument is this? That God has allowed amazing gaps between, and confusion about, the popes. Whether Old Testament Popes, or New Testament Popes (read: true & legitimate Bishops of Rome, who are the Visible Heads of God’s Singularly Saving Roman Catholic Church), it is inarguable, both from Sacred Scripture and from Church History, that God has permitted flabbergasting confusion over who is really the pope, and astonishingly long gaps between popes.

 

Naturally, I focus most of the effort & evidence on New Testament times.

 

Don’t want to believe it?

 

Then read the book and look at the evidence for yourself.

 

Do you want the truth, or do you want a fantasy that makes you feel ‘good’?

 

I want the truth. That’s MY agenda, beloved reader. What’s YOURS?

 

The Great Apostasy, narrowly defined, is now in its 6th decade.

 

We are nearing the end, but it may still have awhile to go.

 

It won’t end, though, till real Catholics get this point:

 

That God does indeed, to punish & test Catholics, allow gaps & confusion when it comes to the Papacy. There is nothing about St. Peter’s Throne during the Great Apostasy that is utterly unprecedented. It’s merely the scope, duration and overwhelming alignment of simultaneous misfortunes that is shocking.

 

Whether or not you’re willing to believe this, it’s in God’s Hands, and your free will.

 

I merely make the truth available, with facts & logic galore.

 

It’s up to YOU to want the truth that is there.

 

But even if you don’t want it, you’ll have to reckon with God. Perhaps He’ll be merciful and enlighten your blinded mind --- and soften your hardened heart --- here on earth, before you die. Or perhaps He’ll be more severe and require a reckoning at your final judgment. I can only beg Him to be merciful. It’s up to Him to decide. I suggest you have humility and examine the evidence, as well as think through the logic, and do so without a predetermining bias.

 

In other words… actually WANT the truth, willing to toss your prejudice to the side.

 

Today is the Feast of St. Patrick. This man, enslaved multiple times by the pagan Irish, was the tool God chose to use in order to miraculously convert that poor blinded people to the Saving Truth of Roman Catholicism. He faced obstacles & persecution, even from fellow Catholics.

 

His famous prayer, the ‘Breastplate’, is a marvelous invocation.

 

I urge real Catholics to pray it, for the danger to us is just as horrible today.

 

Like Patrick, real Catholics, pitiful & few, are enslaved multiple times over to the neo-pagan Modernists, those who rule this Island of Earth, at the center of God’s Creation, with an iron fist. Lucifer’s hatred is palpable, his servants malevolent and a multitude, the enemy we face unbeatable through purely human strength, strategy or symphony of words.

 

We are outgunned. Or should we say, in the era of an invisible ‘cloud’:

 

Outconnected and outmaneuvered with massive data?

 

This is, after all, the ‘Internet of Things’.

 

We’re all one big happy family, you know.

 

Or, er… one, big, happy, leviathan, arrogant, mighty Oceanic Beast.

 

To be Roman Catholic is to defy this Beast. To be Roman Catholic is to stare into the open, poisonous, fiery maw of the Gigantic Dragon and not flinch. To be Roman Catholic is to gaze up at the earth’s moon, see an indescribably beautiful Woman standing upon it, clothed with and shining like the sun, a zodiacal Crown of 12 Stars upon Her Head, and whisper prayerfully:

 

“I am wrapped in Your Mantle, O Lady. Do with me as You will. Only crush his head.”

 

And to Her Son we pray, “Into Your Hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.”

 

This is Roman Catholicism. It is Passion & Crucifixion all the way.

 

Meanwhile, we need another St. Patrick, an Apostle of Earth.

 

The New Druids need to be faced down, and lose.

 

By God’s Almighty Power, not ours.

 

And through His Mother.

 

O Lord, save!

 

  Feast of St. Frances of Rome, 2018 (3-9-18)

 

Uploaded yet another ten chapters of the latest new book, Inter Regnum.

 

We go now to Chapter 22 and the first half of the third devastating argument. An argument against what? That there is no gap of time between popes (which is untrue, since, every time a pope dies --- or, rarely, abdicates --- there is always a period of time before the next pope is elected, and St. Peter’s Throne then sits ‘empty’ in the meanwhile), and that God or His Catholic Church has some special limit of time, beyond which He would never allow an ‘inter regnum’ to go on further (which is also untrue, as we see from the inarguable testimony of the third devastating argument). Namely, that God has often permitted --- both in the Old Testament Church and during the New Testament Church (read: the Roman Catholic Church, and none other) --- astonishingly long gaps of time between popes on occasion, and that, hard as it is for the more ‘conservative’ or ‘traditional’ people to believe (who call themselves Catholic, but frequently are not…), God also permits there to be, every so often, remarkable confusion regarding who is actually a pope and who is actually not (to wit, an antipope).

 

Don’t want to believe this?

 

Then stop being indifferent, arrogant or lazy, and read the book.

 

Yes, that’s right… *gasp* …you aren’t all-knowing, and you aren’t never-wrong. Thus, it couldn’t possibly ‘hurt’ you to take an hour or two to read Inter Regnum. It’s chock full of solid facts & ironclad logic and --- you know what? --- you just might learn something. Today is the Great Apostasy. Almost no one is Catholic. The Body of Christ (the Catholic Church) lies in a Tomb after crucifixion at the hands of those who are anti-Catholic, apostate & lovers of the Anglo-American Religion of Modernism, just like Jesus’ Body lay in the Tomb after crucifixion at the hands of those who were anti-Catholic, apostate & lovers of the Greco-Roman Religion of Hellenism. Both sets of murderers adore themselves and false gods.

 

Yet did Jesus remain in the Tomb or His Body rot away?

 

No.

 

Neither will His Roman Catholic Body remain in the Tomb or rot away.

 

Realizing & admitting that God sometimes punishes us by allowing surprisingly long ‘inter regnums(gaps between true popes) and confusion over who is truly the pope (whilst permitting, too, frauds to put themselves forth as pretend ‘popes’) is one of several steps that people in today’s world must take, if really Roman Catholic, to solving the problems we face now. Humanity can’t solve everything on its own… it’ll take God’s Mercy & Supernatural Power, too.

 

Notwithstanding, the Great Apostasy won’t go away until we recognize this truth.

 

Period.

 

St. Frances of Rome, whose feast day it is today on the universal calendar of the Church, is perfect for this posting. I had nearly everything ready to go, although I did run into the next day, March 10, before finishing. However, the symbolism of her feast is exquisite. She was born and raised in the City of Rome. The ‘babylonian exile’ of the papacy had ended in AD 1377, wherein true Bishops of Rome had ‘exiled’ themselves to Avignon in southern France for 67 years. God used the marvelous St. Catherine of Siena to almost singlehandedly convince the seventh Avignon pope to return his residency to where it belonged, in Rome, Italy, since this is where our first pope, St. Peter, ruled and where he died a martyr. Ergo why all true popes are true & legitimate bishops of the Diocese of Rome. Frances was born in 1384.

 

Unfortunately, right on the heels of the popes returning to Rome, unruly and divisive cardinals --- under the influence of equally unruly and divisive rulers of various Catholic realms --- then precipitated an era of confusion. They elected two separate men, at the same time, as ‘popes’, the rivalry continuing for 39 years. Toward the end of this unprecedented chaos there were even three different men competing for the title of ‘pope’.

 

Now, fortunately, one of these men, at all times, really was the pope.

 

Which means, then, nonetheless, that the others were NOT popes. That is to say, they were ANTIPOPES. This split Christendom (read: Roman Catholic people & nations) into factions. Practically no one knew what to do, or who to believe. It was confusing… very, very, very confusing. A lot like today, during the Great Apostasy. Except it’s way worse now.

 

The point?

 

This great saint, Frances of Rome, was already very holy at the beginning of the 15th century. So holy, in fact, that God gave her the ability to prophesy. And what did she prophesy? One such prophecy --- before it happened! --- was the end of this ‘Great Schism of the West’, wherein nobody was united and nobody could agree on who was the true pope.

 

Precisely what we need today.

 

An end to the confusion, for lots more people to be real Catholics and good Catholics, and for all such real & good Catholics to be able to agree about who is truly the pope. Right now, God is punishing us. We are between popes. And everybody follows after antipopes (men who aren’t really popes), including those who think that both they themselves, and all these antipopes, are ‘catholic’. When, in reality, they are NOT so --- i.e., Catholic.

 

Such is confusing blindness. Such is anti-Catholicity. Such is Antichrist.

 

This is why we’re in the Great Apostasy.

 

For true Catholics, let us pray.

 

Pray that God’s Wrath is exhausted. Pray that His Mercy returns. Pray that he remembers those of us who have remained, or become, truly Catholic during this time of confusion, the Great Apostasy. And pray that, in His Mercy, He converts many to true Catholicity --- including those who think they’re ‘catholic’ but they’re not --- and that He gives us real representatives of Christ on earth again, about whom all may agree, and that these true & legitimate Successors to St. Peter, sitting upon St. Peter’s Throne, will be wise, holy & brave.

 

St. Frances of Rome’s life was filled with disappointment. Following God’s Will meant so often, for her, going against her own will and her own plans… and even though her will and her plans were wonderfully good & virtuous. God’s Will is sometimes like that. His Cross for us, real Catholics, is often the opposite of what we strive for, and even though our goal is wonderfully good & virtuous. That’s part of being a good Catholic, of being a saint.

 

Any real & good Catholic would like this Great Apostasy to end NOW.

 

It will end soon. But not when I say so or you say so. Rather, when God says so.

 

In the meantime, if Catholic, we suffer. And we offer it up to God. It’s His Church, not ours. We’re only a part of His Church if we truly belong to Him. And we only belong to Him if we’re truly Roman Catholic whole & entire. That’s the problem --- that most ‘catholics’ nowadays have not been Catholic WHOLE & ENTIRE. They’ve been ‘catholic’ partly, adamantly against the parts of Catholicism that they don’t like, and don’t love.

 

The parts they pretty much hate, like ‘no Salvation outside the Church’.

 

Ouch! That one really rubs them the wrong way.

 

That God has given us only ONE WAY to salvation, and that this single way is Roman Catholicand nothing else. That so-called ‘invincible ignorance’ doesn’t mean what they want to think it means --- that it doesn’t mean perfectly intelligent human beings can somehow ‘not know about’ Catholicism, or be raised to  ‘not like’ Catholicism, and, in this state of ‘not knowing about’ or ‘not liking’ Catholicism, die as they arenot really, actually, consciously, visibly & literally Roman Catholic… and, somehow, magically, despite what the Church has repeatedly taught us, clearly & loudly, for centuries & millennia since the time of Christ & His Apostles, be ‘invisibly connected’ to the Catholic Church without knowing you’re ‘connected’ and, in this imaginary ‘connection’ to ‘catholicism’, enter God’s Kingdom of Heaven without ever actually believing in (indeed, while believing against!) His Singular Catholic Church.

 

May the Blessed Ever-Virgin Mary’s Heel crush the luciferian serpent’s head.

 

May his venomous lie of ‘salvation through ignorance’ die with him.

 

Our Lady of Guadalupe, Our Lady of Good Success, Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, and Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us! That we do not give up when victory is so near, even if we don’t, all of us, live to see the victory here on earth and the end of the Great Apostasy. May King Jesus’ Sacred & Suffering Heart, together with Your Queenly, Immaculate & Sorrowful Heart, replace the diabolic tyranny we all suffer with the Blessed Reign of Heaven Eternal. May the One True Religion of Roman Catholicism never be denied by anyone again.

 

Amen.

 

  Feast of St. Peter’s Throne at Antioch in Syria, Visible Head of the Catholic Church, 2018 (2-22-18)

 

Uploaded next ten chapters of the latest new book, Inter Regnum.

 

This now takes us through twelve chapters total with the brief introduction and first two devastating arguments made against those who --- whether or not they’re wholly and thus truly Roman Catholic --- think the Throne of St. Peter never sits empty (which it has always done between papal reigns, to wit, when one pope dies or abdicates and the next pope is not yet elected & accepted this awesome responsibility), or that it cannot sit empty beyond an unspecified length of time (which neither God nor His Singular Catholic Church have ever declared or defined, setting an ‘official limit’, beyond which He would ‘never allow’ Her Papal Throne to remain vacant).

 

Don’t wish to believe this?

 

Then, as I am fond of saying, put your money where your mouth is and read it. Read it carefully, read it with humility (not pretending you already ‘know everything’), and read it intelligently. Too, read it without a predetermining bias that demands you come to the conclusion that you already wanted to arrive at, before looking at the facts & logic.

 

After all, what’s the use of that?

 

To actually find the truth?

 

I hardly think so.

 

Don’t waste your God-given mind and make yourself into a fool.

 

This is the Great Apostasy, the Roman Catholic Religion Whole & Entire is the Only Way, no exceptions, for a person of sound intelligence to save his or her immortal soul, and one reason we are in the period of global spiritual darkness that we endure --- with hardly anyone left on earth who is truly Catholic --- is because God has permitted us to be punished with Christ-defying antipopes, diabolic pied pipers who lead astray both those who style themselves ‘catholic’ and those of countless other religious ‘preferences’, including so-called ‘atheism’ and ‘agnosticism’.

 

This is the reality; this is our world today.

 

This is our punishment because neither Catholics nor the rest of humanity have seen fit to relentlessly pursue God’s Charity, the fact that He has provided us with even One Single Way to avoid everlasting hell and enjoy Eternity With Him in the Beatific Vision of Heaven. If you either

already are Catholic or will become Catholic in the not-too-distant future, then you must of a necessity comprehend this apostate predicament, led by antipopes, or else you will certainly never remain or ever become Catholic, or else you will never make headway against the tyrannical confusion and make any contribution, however modest, toward solving it.

 

God is prepared to use us as His Own, yet only if we truly belong to Him.

 

We are only truly His Own when we are Roman Catholic.

 

The antipopes are not His precisely because this is so.

 

Multiple Catholic sources from ancient times up until recently, in the past century, have foretold this very crisis. The loss of Catholicity on a global scale was not unforeseen by Our Creator or His saints or other wise Catholics. Nor are surprisingly long ‘inter regnums’ impossible. It is, indeed, the only thing --- period --- that reasonably explains today’s appalling situation.

 

Or have you not been paying attention to what Antipope Francis is saying & doing?

 

Dream time is over. Fantasy land is finished. It’s time to wake up.

 

May the Sacred & Suffering Heart of King Jesus, along with His Mother Mary’s Immaculate & Sorrowful Heart, enable you to do this. Reveries can be pleasant, and sleep is sometimes necessary… but not when the world is burning. There is work to do.

 

Today is the second time in the liturgical & sanctoral year, barely one month after the first time, that we celebrate our first pope’s throne and supreme rule over the One True Church. First is January 18th, when we remember his 25 year reign in the City of Rome… which is why true & legitimate Bishops of Rome have been the Visible Head of Christ’s Catholic Church ever since. Today, February 22nd, we remember St. Peter’s 7 year earlier reign in the City of Antioch in Syria. That divine number, seven, as we make clear in the latest posting of Helplessly Ignorant some 2 or 3 months ago. Modern humanity wants to be ‘divine’ without the Divinity. Whereas the Divine, the Triune God of the Roman Catholic Church, wants us to be ‘divine’… but only with Him, perfect in humble obedience to Him, as real Catholics with all of the Church’s infallible dogmas whole & entire.

 

Let this date on the solar calendar mark a clear heavenly movement in the right direction here on earth.

 

  Feast of St. Peter’s Throne at Rome, Visible Head of the Catholic Church, 2018 (1-18-18)

 

Posted first two chapters of the latest new book, Inter Regnum.

 

And what does ‘inter regnum’ mean? It’s Latin for ‘between reigns’.

 

Why is this important? Because the whole entire world and all of humanity is in the Great Apostasy right now. What is apostasy? Complete & utter rejection of God’s One True Religion of Roman Catholicism, outside of which absolutely no one can be saved… no ifs, ands or buts… or any endless loopholes contrived by so-called ‘catholics’ in the last few centuries under the guise of a supposedly ‘invincible ignorance’ for intelligent people, coupled with an equally purported ‘sincerity’ upon their parts, allowing them to be ‘invisibly connected’ to the incontrovertibly Very Visible Roman Catholic Body of Jesus Christ. And what is it about our apostasy that makes it ‘great’? It’s the biggest apostasy of human beings since right before the Great Flood, and God’s Devastating Wrath upon earth due to our horrific & neverending sins, including denial of His Saving Truth and embracement of whatever false religion they want to believe in --- after all, who cares if this false religion is only a fantasy? Doesn’t matter. They don’t want to believe in the One True Religion of Roman Catholicism, whole & entire!

 

And what is one huge factor allowing the Great Apostasy to occur?

 

False ‘popes’ who aren’t even really ‘catholic’.

 

Don’t think this is possible… but call yourself a ‘real’ Catholic?

 

To which my earnest & incredulous reply is very simply the following:

 

Seriously? I mean, really? At this point in time with Francis putting himself forth as a ‘pope’?

 

Have you been paying attention to what he’s been saying & doing lately?

 

Seriously?

 

As I sometimes sardonically joke to my family:

 

“Do you think, if God allows it, at the point an antipope announces publicly to the world that he’s a Satanist, and that God is the Devil and the Devil is God, and that sin is virtue and virtue is sin --- do you think at that point in time, finally, the most conservative or traditional of self-styled ‘catholics’ will turn to each other and say, ‘Hey, you know… I don’t think the pope is Catholic. In fact, I don’t think he’s even the pope!’”

 

You think?

 

If you accuse me of being ‘too harsh’, my dear soul, then realize this:

 

It was possible to figure out that the antipopes were antipopes some 20 years ago. It was possible to figure out, by the 1990s at the very latest, that Vatican II wasn’t a real council, and that the Great Apostasy had erupted out into the open.

 

But now time is running out.

 

Even the most blind who are of a ‘conservative’ or more ‘traditional’ nature --- and call themselves ‘catholic’ --- should be able to start seeing straight, and, finally, figure out the truth. That we’re in the midst of the Great Apostasy foretold long ago by Roman Catholics, and that God’s Wrath is about to be poured out upon the earth in an undeniably visible way.

 

His first punishment was to let people… who used to be Catholic… become blind to their loss of Catholicity. And in order to make sure this was permitted to happen, Our Creator also allowed the Throne of St. Peter to become empty (which is what happens routinely every time a pope dies and before the next pope can be elected, incidentally) --- but for an extraordinarily ‘long’ amount of time which shocks & surprises those who are unaware.

 

By human standards & mistaken assumptions, at least.

 

Don’t want to believe this?

 

Then put your money where your mouth is and read the book.

 

Stop being willfully ignorant, stop being impatient, and actually start to THINK.

 

The time is short and the hour late. The world is become a cesspool of sin.

 

Even amongst purported ‘catholics’, including the supposed ‘pope’.

 

So get off your duff and use your God-given mind.

 

It’s that simple.

 

Today is the Feast of the Throne of St. Peter in Rome.

 

I can’t think of a better day to post the first part of this book, however small the post is.

 

May the Most Sacred & Suffering Heart of King Jesus and the Most Immaculate & Sorrowful Heart of Queen Mary enlighten darkened minds and soften hardened hearts, causing them to finally see the truth… the One & Singular Saving Truth of Roman Catholicism Whole & Entire, and the unique & peculiar truth, right now, that the whole world and all of humanity is in false religion and spiritual blindness. The blindness & wickedness of the Religion of Modernism, and the fact that the antipopes, since the Vatican 2 Pseudo-Council, have been leading self-styled ‘catholics’ and practically all human beings down the road to eternal destruction.

 

Wake up, my beloved soul!

 

The celestial alarm clock is beeping.

 

Don’t hit the snooze again and fall back to sleep.

 

Our beds are burning… it’s time to get up.

 

Rise and shine!

 

  Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas, 2017 (12-12-17)

 

Uploaded ten new chapters of the book, Helplessly Ignorant, in the Books & Articles section, the last two chapters unusually long by my standards --- since, in writing a big or complicated tome, I try to slightly increase the odds of it being read by making the chapters relatively small, with whimsically-named or word-playing titles, causing it to be a little bit less intimidating for the everyday reader. We now have a Part Six, going to Chapter 144.

 

We’re dealing with the sixth devastating argument against the fantasy of ‘it doesn’t matter what religion you are because a creator doesn’t exist’, or the other variation of ‘it doesn’t matter what religion you are because our creator doesn’t care as long you’re sincere’, taking a side trip into the Apocalypse… the ‘Book of Revelation’ as Protestants call it… the last book of the Bible.

 

In this side trip we grapple with the endlessly fascinating question, “What is this beast out of the sea?” Such a thing seems bizarre and weird, yet strangely transfixing. What makes modern people, who don’t much think about religion or philosophy anymore, assuming that they are irrelevant, so obsessed with this scriptural book and its peculiar, difficult-to-understand & shocking contents? Why now, when nobody cares, do people still fixate on these things?

 

And so we have tried to explain what the ‘Oceanic Beast’ is. Jesus taught in parables (stories outwardly telling a ‘story’ whilst, at the same time, saying something much more crucial, profound & urgent if the listener (or reader) has the ability (and desire) to comprehend). Beloved St. John the Evangelist, the disciple who sat next to the Lord at the Last Supper, continues Jesus’ strategy: tell the truth, but keep most of it hidden under metaphor.

 

After all, we don’t want to cast our pearls before the swine, do we?

 

Yet Jesus also said, in the Gospels, to shout from the rooftops what I tell you in secret.

 

It’s time to climb onto a roof and talk publicly. The Great Apostasy is here.

 

What are the Oceanic Beast’s seven heads? We’ve gone through five.

 

What’s the sixth head? The Greco-Roman Empire.

 

Yet in explaining this sixth head of the apocalyptic Sea Monster, we take another detour. We grapple with that perpetually entrancing number --- the Number of Humanity and the Number of the Beast --- six hundred sixty-six. Or, to put it more numerically, 666. What is this?

 

In doing so, we get allegorical, symbolic & geometric.

 

Why?

 

Because Our Creator is All-Knowing (Omniscient) & All-Powerful (Omnipotent). He doesn’t do anything by ‘chance’. And He made us in His Image… to look like Him. As a result, all of creation is a ‘parable’, telling us --- if we have the ‘ears’ to hear --- what He’s saying.

 

And what would that be?

 

That’s what these latest ten chapters get into. We’ve already dived into a lot of it. But 666? What’s so special about this number? And 6 and 7? Are they special, too? What is it with 12 and 144? And etc. God is allegorical; Sacred Scripture is allegorical; we get allegorical, too. Because it’s time to start to understand. It’s time to talk publicly from the rooftops.

 

And since 6 is the Number of Humanity (666 having an even deeper meaning that evades comprehension by most human beings, at least till now), then it’s very appropriate that we take this detour as we discuss the sixth head of the Oceanic Beast. God has a plan for everything. He never takes away our free will… notwithstanding, omniscience & omnipotence give Him the ‘upper hand’, so to speak. We act freely, often evilly, but He wins in the end every time.

 

It’s not going to be any different today, despite having consigned Him to the trash.

 

No flippancy meant there; it’s simply being honest. Modern human beings are the epitome of pride. We act like our own ‘Gods’ and we’re not going to let something like the real God get in the way of our ‘divine’ goals. If His Singular Religion, Roman Catholicism, gets in the way… well, then, away with Catholicism! And so it is. Nobody’s Catholic anymore.

 

Not really. Not truly. Not in the sense of intelligently believing all infallible dogmas.

 

God can’t be ‘wrong’, and He didn’t make us in His Image for no reason. Ergo, He gives us intelligent minds for a purpose. And He gave us His One & Only True Religion of Roman Catholicism for a purpose. To wit, to tell us what we’re meant to be and do.

 

Hard to believe? Then you want to be ‘God’ and you make up your own religion.

 

Yet birds of a feather flock together. Hence, modern people are similar.

 

This includes their modern ‘religion’ --- Modernism.

 

We could make super-impressive-sounding descriptions of this Religion of Modernism. Nevertheless, we’ll make it simple. Want to know what modernist religion is? Want to know what you most likely believe in, and even if you haven’t taken time or intelligence to think about it, acting more on ‘instinct’ and ‘modern custom’ than intelligent thought? Don’t you worry… we’ll do the leg work for you. Take Roman Catholicism, and then reverse it.

 

That’s right. You read correctly. It’s that simple. The goal is the goal.

 

In other words, most modern people don’t realize it.

 

Why should they? It’s not like they think a lot.

 

And if they do think, it’s not like they want to know the truth.

 

Ah, but truth exists whether you want to know it or not. And the truth is there, regardless. And it gets you in the end, no matter what. Because we all die. Then comes reckoning. What did you do with your life? And why? Did you think your intelligence was there for nothing?

 

The point is, take the Religion of Catholicism and flip flop it.

 

What do you get? The Religion of Modernism!

 

Not all at once. Not everybody altogether to the same degree. But, given enough time, affirmative. Pretty much everyone --- however blind to what they’re doing --- gets to the finish line, the logical conclusion even without logic. And Modernism in a nutshell is precisely opposite to Catholicism. So where are we headed? Where have we arrived?

 

Right… more and more the opposite of Catholicism.

 

This is why we detour into these things.

 

God knew what we would do from all of eternity. It’s no surprise to Him. And it doesn’t have to be a total surprise to us, either. He’s told us, in parable, what we’re living through right now. You just have to have ears to hear (an intelligent mind with good will to grasp it).

 

666 and 144? Esoteric & strange, I know. But give it a shot. Read a little bit and think.

 

And once you get through it, in the new Part Six of Helplessly Ignorant, Chapters 135 to 144, we’ll get back to the sixth head of the Oceanic Beast. I promise. And onto the seventh head. Seem too strange for you? Well, then, my poor & precious reader, you haven’t ever really perused the Bible, have you? Or delved into the early Church fathers. And so forth. It’s scriptural, traditional & orthodox. Just not what most of us think about most of the time. Inexplicable, though? No. You just haven’t thought about it. Or figured it out yet.

 

I’m helping you along. So don’t panic, don’t curse & don’t be stubborn.

 

Oh, and Our Lady of Guadalupe? She appeared to the simple & devout Amerindian Catholic convert, Juan Diego. Pious & God-fearing, he adopted the Religion of his Spanish Rulers --- those who freed him and his Amerindian fellows from the snake-god-worshipping and cannibalistic-human-sacrificing (not to mention tyrannical) Aztecs. The miracle that then transpired, with miraculous roses during December and a miraculous image of the Blessed Virgin Mary upon his cactus fiber cloak or ‘pancho’ (the ‘tilma’) is proof that his testimony was true. The Queen of Highest Heaven and Mother of God really did appear to him, and She really did have a message for him, and for his unconverted Amerindian comrades (who then converted en masse upon seeing the miraculous image), and for us as well.

 

A pope didn’t formally declare Her the Patroness of the Americas for nothing, you know. God’s Catholic Church may have lost up to half of Europe to the Protestant Rebellion, yet He balanced it out, seemingly, with the miraculous conversion of millions of Amerindians to His Roman Catholic Body. That’s why so-called ‘hispanics’ of the Americas are so devoted to Her even until now, during the Great Apostasy. The upshot? What are we to draw from all this?

 

Everyone thinks (if they’re even aware) that the cherubic ‘child’ or ‘angel’ She stands upon in the miraculous image of Juan Diego’s tilma is a ‘heavenly angel’. And a ‘child’ because medieval Catholic artists knew that, in portraying sinless angels, children are the most heavenly --- that is, free from sin --- that human beings can be. Hence why they loved to portray angels as ‘babes’. Because they’re representing normally invisible celestial creatures visibly in visible art on earth! Sacred Scripture calls Lucifer a ‘babe’ in innocence when God first created him (trust me, or else read the Old Testament for your own self and see that what I’m saying is true). Consequently, that angelic ‘babe’ supposedly ‘holding up’ Queen Mary in the miraculous image is no true ‘angel’… it’s Lucifer himself, the head fallen angel, being crushed by Her Heel.

 

The proof? Easy. Look at his wings. Are they green, white & red? Okay. So why?

 

Long ago Central Amerindians in what is now known as modern day Mexico knew why and what it meant.

 

Because their wise & powerful snake god --- Quetzalcoatl, the ‘feathered’ or ‘flying’ serpent --- bore those very same colors of green, white & red, also. As does the modern flag of Mexico, used since 1821. Chance? No intelligent & honest person can think that. When Amerindians saw Juan Diego’s tilma with the miraculous image of Our Lady of Guadalupe upon it in 1531, everybody knew exactly what it meant. It meant She was stronger & wiser than their snake god.

 

This is why they converted en masse. They were glad to be rid of their oppressors, the cannibalistic, human-sacrificing Aztecs, but not glad enough to adopt the Religion of their saviors, the conquering Spanish, to whom they had freely given fealty, prior to their liberation. It took this miracle. And, once done, they knew what they had to do. God’s Mother was their Mother now, and Her Son their Celestial Savior. It took this to convince them.

 

And, oh yes, the day? That is to say, December 12th?

 

The symbolism is delicious (12th month, 12th day).

 

The very day we uploaded the last ten chapters of Helplessly Ignorant, bringing us to Chapter 144 (144 is the square of 12, i.e., 12 times 12 equals 144). And in that last chapter thus far, Chapter 144, we explain the symbolism of 144, especially 144,000 in the Apocalypse.

 

Yet is there a deeper symbolism? I mean, Heaven does nothing by chance, right? Not if you’re thinking clearly and know God at all. Christ & His Mother chose December 12 in 1531 for a reason --- because it was the winter solstice then. The Gregorian Calendar was not adopted within Catholic countries until 1582 by papal decree (and… um… Catholics were the first people to come up with this necessary improvement to our solar calendar, by the way). Adoption of the new calendar came about because the earlier solar calendar, the Julian, compounded a small error of about 11 minutes each year (viz., every Julian year added approximately 11 excess minutes to each year, making the solar calendar year out of whack with the real year by about 3 days every 4 centuries), which starts to add up to some serious time after a millennium or so. This meant all Catholic countries had to jump from October 5 to October 15 on their solar calendars in 1582 in order to get the calendar back in synchronization with the real year, not letting Easter (which is supposed to be near the beginning of spring) slide into winter, then autumn, and then summer, etc., as the centuries go by. Confusing?

 

Yes, if you’re not familiar with these things.

 

If you’ve got your thinking cap on, it is time you realize:

 

“Oh. Oh my goodness. In 1531, nearly fifty-one years before the solar calendar was corrected (people back then all over the world still using the not-quite-as-accurate Julian Calendar), the Blessed Virgin Mary actually appeared to the saintly Juan Diego on December 21st (the date most common for the winter solstice, along with December 22), according to the Gregorian Calendar, projecting it backward before 1582, due to a less accurate Julian calendar accumulatively lagging somewhat over nine days behind the seasons. Mon Dieu!”

 

Which means?

 

Yes, Mary actually appeared to Juan on December 21 in 1531, upon the winter solstice. Or, to put it differently, She appeared to him at the very beginning of winter, on the shortest day of the year with the longest night. Symbolism? Absolutely. The Protestant Rebellion had just occurred and Modernism, speaking historically, was just gaining steam. The world was entering into full scale rebellion against God, rejecting His Singular Catholic Religion.

 

Therefore, the longest night of humanity, religiously speaking, was just beginning.

 

Mary came to reassure Her children, Roman Catholics, that She would care for them, and to add to Her Roman Catholic brood by miraculously converting Central & South Amerindians to Her Son’s Catholic Church. That promise continues until this day. The night is no longer quite as long, but, then, winter doesn’t get coldest until January & February, does it? And never is it coldest until right before dawn. Spring is just around the corner, the day almost ready to begin… yet it’s very, very, very cold right now, spiritually speaking. Catholics are freezing, all alone, trying to stave off religious frostbite, our shepherds having abandoned us, and --- despite all this --- we go on, not losing hope, because the Blessed Virgin Mary is with us. Our Heavenly Mother has not forgotten us. She wraps us up in Her Mantle, embraces us so closely to Her Immaculate Heart, and comforts us. In a cold, anti-Catholic world, She very tenderly chants Her Son’s Everlasting Canticle to us, and tells us to be patient.

 

After all, She will crush the serpent’s head.

 

And spring will come, and dawn.

 

The days are getting longer.

 

Hang on, my dear soul.

 

The Son also rises.

 

  Feast of the Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 2017 (10-11-17)

 

Posted eleven more chapters of the book, Helplessly Ignorant, in the Books & Articles section. We now go all the way to Chapter 134 in Part Five.

 

What was the fifth head of the Oceanic Beast in the Apocalypse?

 

The Assyro-Chaldeo-Persian Empire, centered in Babylonia.

 

Our tender reader will forgive the ‘complicated-sounding’ hyphenated name. In being precise, ‘complications’ can arise. The point is, despite three seemingly ‘different’ set of leaders ruling over this massive Mesopotamian realm (the Neo-Assyrians, the Chaldeans or ‘Neo-Babylonians’, and the Persians or ‘Medo-Persians’), they were each of them founded on the ancient Sumero-Akkadian foundations of paganism & culture leftover from Nemrod’s Rebellion and the Semitic Akkadian’s adaptation of Nemrod’s religious revolt, whilst impressing their Semitic language, customs & cultures on top of this Sumerian paganism. The fifth imperial head of the Apocalyptic ‘Sea Monster’ both preserved Nemrod’s paganism and sought to resurrect it… all centered in ancient Babylonia, of course.

 

The catch is, the True God kept charitably interfering, seeking to bring these peoples back to their senses by returning to His True Religion. The fourth head of the Beast nearly did so, the Phoenicians; would any of the closely related ethnicities of the fifth head in the Empire of Babylon do so? Almost, several times.

 

These people were caught in the middle.

 

In the Middle of the Earth (where God planned the ‘middle’ of our earth’s spherical surface to be, from the beginning), in the middle of, practically, where the Garden of Paradise was, in the middle of Nemrod’s ancient post-Deluge Rebellion and the ‘rebirth’ of paganism so soon after the Great Flood cleansed our world of religious filth & immorality, and in the middle of Our Creator’s spiritual crosshairs, He, the Almighty Maker, either converting to His Singular Religion or else punishing & destroying the contumacious rebel.

 

Likewise humanity today.

 

We’re all caught in the middle of Nemrod’s Rebellion during the Great Apostasy, no matter where in the world we live. And we’re all caught in the spiritual crosshairs of Our Creator, He offering us either conversion to His Singularly Saving Religion of Roman Catholicism, or else ultimate punishment & destruction for our willful, repeated & unrelenting obscenities.

 

Technically, I completed the posting of this latest section of Helplessly Ignorant on the twelfth of October. However, I had everything prepared and was in the midst of updating on 11 October 2017. This, along with the incredible symbolism of the date, is why I’m saying, essentially, it’s October 11th that this post was made.

 

The significance?

 

The Blessed Virgin Mary’s Motherhood has been celebrated by true Catholics in various places at various times in the year throughout Catholicism’s two millennia history. Although, to be sure, it’s usually (till recent centuries) been more associated with yuletide and the turn of the new year on the solar calendar. For a variety of reasons, by 1914, the Catholic Nation of Portugul established the Feast of the Maternity on October 11.

 

That’s right. Just three years before Our Lady of Fatima appeared to three poor shepherd children in central Portugal and a mere three years & two days before Heaven astonished the earth with the unparalleled Miracle of the Sun on 13 October 1917, Portugal --- that unique kingdom so preciously devoted to the Mother of God --- officially began this feast today.

 

In 1931, to honor the 1500th anniversary of the glorious Council of Ephesus in AD 431, where Holy Mother Church solemnly, infallibly & explicitly affirmed the Blessed Virgin Mary as the ‘God-bearer’, Pope Pius XI authoritatively established this same Feast of Her Maternity on the universal calendar of the Roman Catholic Church in order to remind all Catholics everywhere on earth of Her Divinely-Bestowed Prerogative. The privilege of Her being the most highly honored of God’s creatures anywhere, anywhen, by being His Specially Chosen Vessel, the Mother of His Son… and despite Her being a mere creature, a mere human being.

 

A Son, incidentally, Who is God from All of Eternity.

 

Do you see the symbolism, my dear soul?

 

She Who Crushes the Serpent’s Head, Who vanquishes all false religions (read: all non-Roman-Catholic religions), Who is the Mother of the Second Person of the Divinity and thus Mother of God Almighty Himself, is honored in the very country She chooses to appear, warning us of the terrible calamities to occur --- not least of which is the loss of Catholicity all over the earth and the brief yet real triumph of the Religion of Modernism and the Great Apostasy --- only three years later, after Portugal had honored Her by establishing this Maternal Feast.

 

Pope Pius XI, by the way, in spite of doing this good thing he did in placing the Feast of Her Maternity on the universal calendar, failed, like his successor, Pius XII, to obey Her Command to solemnly consecrate the nation of Russia --- and Russia by name alone, publicly, together with all the Catholic bishops of the world on the very same day at the same moment --- thereby leading to the plight we find ourselves in today… apostasy & total rebellion, the errors of Russia now spread throughout the earth, almost no one remaining alive who is truly Catholic, and antipopes --- men pretending to be Catholic & Bishops of Rome who are not --- prancing along with the whole world cheering for the lies they perpetrate, like pied pipers, believing that they, the Vicars of Antichrist & Lucifer, ‘represent’ the God to Whom Mary gave birth.

 

They do not.

 

Until humanity gets that figured out --- especially the part of humanity that calls itself ‘catholic’ while not actually being so --- then the Modernists and the Antipopes are going to sail on, spreading lies & falsehoods about religion that continue to poison & damn souls.

 

Again, the symbolism, particularly of the feast of October 11th this year, 2017?

 

2017 is the 100th Anniversary of the Six Apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima.

 

In May (the month of Mary, you’ll recall) She first appeared.

 

May 13th, 1917, to be exact. She then appeared on the 13th of each succeeding month until October 13th, 1917. The only exception is August 13th, 1917, since the Freemasonic leaders of Portugal at that time, oppressing good Catholics, had locked up the three small children in a nearby jail, trying to get them to renounce what they had seen and heard. They would not comply. Per observers in Fatima, Our Lady manifested Herself partially on August 13th, regardless. Meanwhile, on August 19th, 1917, She appeared to the children in prison.

 

2017 is also the first time, in 99 years, that a full solar eclipse has occurred and traversed the entire width of the United States of America from west to east. In 1918, when the last such eclipse transpired, on 8 June 1918, just months before the four year long World War I concluded --- and which the US joined in fighting the last two years of that horrible & bloody war --- Our Lady of Fatima’s first prophecy, that World War I would end soon, but not right away, came true. The ‘War to End All Wars’ (as people naively called it then, prior to World War II) only came to a full and official end on 11 November 1918. One cannot help wondering, if Catholic... is the full solar eclipse that the United States experienced, from west to east across the entire continent, on 21 August 2017... and which I had the privilege to witness in the Ochoco National Forest... a harbinger of the opposite, of a horrible global war about to begin in another few months, combined with great natural catastrophes & hideous plagues in years to come, etc.?

 

Only time will tell, since I’m not a prophet.

 

But one wonders.

 

The very next day of this year, 2017 --- August 22 --- was also both the Octave of the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary bodily into Heaven, and the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of the same Blessed Ever-Virgin Mary.

 

And, were that not enough, if one pays attention to the ancient Zodiac and its Twelve Constellations, one notes that each zodiacal constellation, since most ancient of times, thousands of years ago, start and end at exact dates of the solar calendar. For instance, the Zodiac Sign of Leo (the Lion), begins on July 23rd and concludes on August 22nd… the very day of the Feast of the Immaculate Heart and a single day after the moon (which represents Mary and the feminine) eclipsed the sun (which represents Jesus and the masculine). Any good Catholic who, as well, knows Sacred Scripture, knows that Mary’s Son, Jesus, is the Light of This World, just as the material sun in the sky is the material light of this earth. He or she knows, too, how the last book of the Bible, the Apocalypse, tells of a Sign in Heaven, a Celestial Woman, clothed with the sun, standing upon the moon, and twelve stars upon Her Head. It doesn’t take too much imagination to realize that God through St. John the Beloved Disciple was speaking about Mary, telling us that the Glory of Her Divine Son, Jesus, envelopes Her (just as the glory of the sun enveloped the moon on that spectacular display of 21 August 2017), and that a feminine moon represents Her Queenly Rule over this earth, Her Heel eventually crushing the Serpent’s Head, and that the Crown of Twelve Stars upon Her Head are the Twelve Signs of the Ancient Zodiac, symbolizing Her God-Given Queenship of All of Heaven.

 

Incidentally, one of the names of Her Son, Jesus, is the ‘Lion of the Tribe of Juda’, a lion symbolizing kingship over his kingdom. Hence the significance of the Sign of Leo (the Lion), representing Jesus, and the fact that the 2017 eclipse happened at the very end of His Zodiacal Sign. And the significance, too, that two days later (one day after the Feast of Her Immaculate Heart), begins the Sign of Virgo (the Virgin), which zodiacal sign obviously represents the Blessed Ever-Virgin Mary, the Virgin Mother of God.

 

Which brings us, then, to the last observation of immense significance.

 

That the Sign of Virgo (the Virgin) concludes on September 23rd.

 

As several astute astronomical buffs have noted for the last year or two, Jupiter (the king planet) entered into the Constellation of Virgo (the Virgin) as of 16 November 2016, not quite one year ago. Several other important planets & stars also congregated in the Sign of Virgo during this period. On 23 September 2017, Jupiter zodiacally ‘exited’ the Sign of Virgo. It is plain to the Catholic person that this symbolizes Jesus being in Mary’s Womb (the time Jupiter was in Virgo was just over 9 months) and then being born. October 11th, therefore? The perfect complement, completing the symbolism, celebrating and honoring Mary for being, truly, the Mother of God Almighty Himself. And just as Her giving birth to Him way back then, on December 25th, in 1 BC, began the New Testament Church, outside of which there is absolutely no salvation, of a singular Roman Catholicism, so, also, celebrating and honoring Mary for crushing the Serpent’s Head via Her Son’s Sacrifice upon the Cross, bringing the Great Apostasy to an end that we have endured now for over fifty years, and resurrecting’, as it were, His Body, the Roman Catholic Church, in a way totally unexpected and unforeseen by most of the people of this world, so lost in false religion and horrible sin that we are. After all, we must pay the piper. We can only enjoy his diabolic music and prancing for so long.

 

All of this, as well, just two days before October 13th.

 

To wit, the one hundredth anniversary of the Sixth & Final Apparition of Our Lady of Fatima, marked by the unprecedented and celestial Miracle of the Sun, on 13 October 1917, in a land called Portugal, once Catholic and, at that point, terribly tyrannized by violently anti-Catholic people who wanted the destruction of the Catholic Church and the eradication of the Catholic Religion from the face of this earth… but who, instead, will have to admit their defeat.

 

She wins in the end, you know. Her Heel crushes satan’s head.

 

Most Sacred & Suffering Heart of King Jesus, have mercy on us. Most Immaculate & Sorrowful Heart of Queen Mary, pray for us. That we who are Catholic might stay Catholic and attain to Heaven; that those who are not Catholic might become Catholic, stay truly converted, and attain to Heaven; and that those who are not Catholic and refuse to become Catholic, remaining enemies of God’s One & Only True Religion, might be crushed along with their father, the devil, under Her Foot, and acknowledge both He & She as the Heavenly Monarchs they are, if only under endlessly painful duress, their proud & modernist heads brought low, forced to admit, finally, the Saving Truth in the End.

 

Extra Ecclesiam nulla Salus.

 

Ad majorem Dei gloriam.

 

Ad Jesum per Mariam.

 

¡Viva Cristo Rey!

 

  Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary, 2017 (9-12-17)

 

Uploaded seven more chapters to the tome, Helplessly Ignorant, in the Books & Articles section. This takes us to Chapter 123 in Part Five.

 

Why do contemporary scholars and modern people reactionarily doubt much of what we can know --- or at least reasonably suspect --- about ancient history & ancient civilizations?

 

Because we’ve got big huge heads puffed with pride and must think ourselves the greatest.

 

We also don’t like the thought of our ‘greatest’ of civilizations disappearing into the murk of history, forgotten and disparaged like so many others prior to us. Oh, and that fear of ours that disaster & destruction await us… that bothers us, too. A fear not assuaged by the example of certain mighty civilizations that have disappeared or been destroyed long ago.

 

And, like the Phoenicians (which is the central fourth of seven ‘heads’ of an oceanic ‘beast’), we have a crucial choice to make. Which is more important:

 

A visible earth & material wealth or an invisible heaven & spiritual riches?

 

Thus far we’ve chosen very badly.

 

Hence our fear.

 

Four days ago, on September 8th, was the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Ever-Virgin Mary, God’s Mother since She is the Woman God chose to give birth to His Divine Son, Jesus. And do mothers give birth to mere bodies? No, a mother gives birth to a human being, growing the body of a real person in her womb. Likewise Mary. And the Person She gave birth to is God Almighty from All of Eternity. Today, then, is the fourth day in the octave of this magnificent Queen’s Nativity. She is 2032 years old, plus four days.

 

(Please see older What’s New? posts for proof of how we can know Her exact age. You’ll find it in the entry made on 8 September 2011. It really isn’t ‘impossible’ to know Her precise age.)

 

Today Catholics honor Her for the Wondrous Name God inspired Her parents to give Her.

 

What is its meaning?

 

Most people, who claim to know, will insist it’s from the Hebrew for ‘bitterness’, citing the name ‘Miriam’ as evidence (she was the sister of St. Moses and a prophetess, to boot). If, indeed, there is any truth to this claim, then, of course, certainly the Blessed Virgin Mary knew the bitterness of seeing Her Only Son die in front of Her eyes, and held His lifeless, bloody body in Her holy & pure arms.

 

Notwithstanding, the early Church fathers insist that Her Name means ‘Lady’ (as in a Sovereign Queen, just as a king may be called a ‘lord’), and St. Jerome most definitely taught that Her Name means also ‘Star of the Sea’. There is symbolism through and through in this, as is always the case when it comes to the Holy, Infallible & Only Saving Religion of Catholicism. God foreknows everything from eternity in His Omniscience.

 

So what is the symbolism here?

 

Our Lady & Star of the Sea is the counterpart of what Lucifer, the Fallen Angel, once was. The ‘bearer of light’ who is now a false ‘angel of light’, he fell into darkness via his pride and his rebellion. Mary, ever humble and always obedient, has taken his place. She bears the Light now, the Light of Her Divine Son. She is the Star that arises out of the sea of humanity, and, like the luminous ether, undulating with waves of light, She undulates with the Glory & Light of God Himself, She being the One He speaks into existence when He says, “Be light made,” and plants the Light of This World in Her Womb, His Spirit hovering over the formless deep, the pure, holy & untainted water out of which Her Son emerged, and which, applied to us in the Sacrament of Baptism --- and united to a Profession of the Roman Faith whole & entire --- permits human beings, conceived in sin, to hypostatically join with Our Creator, sharing in His Divinity. But on His terms (which are Roman Catholic!), not ours.

 

May this Lady crush the Serpent’s head and bring his Modernist Tower crashing to the ground, dividing our enemies… all those who refuse to admit the Saving Truth… and raise us up in Her Mantle, sheltering us and cradling us… and even if we must give up our lives in martyrdom for Our Holy Religion. Wallowing in humility, let us imitate Her, let us ask Her to supply what is sadly deficient in us, making us worthy of that for which we can never be worthy on our own, worthless sinners that we are.

 

Let us whisper Her Name with reverence, imploring Her prayers.

 

Let all true Catholics be but the sole of Her Foot.

 

The Foot that brings victory out of defeat.

 

Starting last November, in 2016, Jupiter (the king) entered the zodiacal constellation of Virgo (the virgin), and he exits on 23 September 2017. This upon the heels of the first continent wide total eclipse of the United States in 99 years and during the 100th anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima’s appearance to the three shepherd children in Portugal, which culminated with the miraculous (and apocalyptic) ‘Dance of the Sun’ upon 13 October 1917, witnessed by over 70,000 people, many who were not believers and were mockers of the Catholic Faith.

 

What does God have in mind?

 

I don’t claim to know with prophetic precision.

                               

I do know, though, that we are living through the Apocalypse, and that the end of our Apostasy is at hand. Our sins cry out to Heaven for vengeance, and punishment is not far. Other civilizations have fallen into ruin for their sins, and ours will not escape its fate. I do not pretend to fathom exactly how God will act, or what will be our entire fate. I know only that God is about to visit us, and that it is better to be Catholic, be in the state of grace, be humble, and to be more concerned about being prepared spiritually than worrying about the crumbling of a nation’s infrastructure, economic demise, or bloody warfare.

 

The worst punishment has already occurred --- the loss of the Catholic Faith from highest to lowest, leaving only a very few in this world who are obscure and hidden, but truly Catholic. No Salvation outside this Church… that is what no one wants to believe, even those who still insist on calling themselves ‘catholic’. The Ecclesial Body of Jesus Christ is lying dead in the tomb of this world, a modernist temple erected in its stead. Now that Tower of Babel is tottering, destined to fall, and the Body of Christ about to rise again.

 

This I know. And I tell you, let us all be prepared.

 

  Feast of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary and of Ss. Timothy, Hippolytus & Symphorian, Martyrs, as Well as the Octave of the Assumption of the Same Blessed Ever-Virgin Mother of God, 2017 (8-22-17)

 

Posted another ten chapters to the book, Helplessly Ignorant, in the Books & Articles section. This brings it to Chapter 116 in Part Five.

 

Continuing with the fourth head of the Apocalyptic ‘Sea Monster’, we describe the nature of the Semitic Phoenician Empire (or ‘Confederacy’, if you will, since this Empire had no dominatingly central or direct rule of command), the Chanaanite Curse, and how this infection spread to the patrimonial descendants of St. Noe, not to mention how God determines imperial centrality, as it were, of the human race from His Perspective.

 

Along the way we grab a peek at Jerusalem and it’s heavenly symbolism.

 

We are over half the way through AD 2017.

 

The edifice of Modernism is fracturing --- yet it may take years and even decades before the entire skyscraping tower of self-deifying human hubris is crashed to the ground. During that period of time, it is entirely possible (yet I am not claiming to be prophetic in the strict sense, simply cautious in the broad sense) we will see brutal persecution before it’s all over. Or, perhaps, not. But even prominent ‘conservative’ political voices in America are talking recently like a ‘second civil war’ is more than just plausible… it’s already taking place.

 

That is to say, such ‘conservatives’ (relatively speaking, in comparison to the increasingly liberal modernist spirit of our times) are no longer able to hide their heads in the sand, pretending the United States, and modernized nations the world over, are bastions of ‘freedom’, protecting their citizens from coercion when it comes to religion or morality. Indeed, the US and other modern nations not only fail today to protect such ‘freedoms’ --- rather, they are becoming the very tyrants we imagined ourselves ‘free’ from, oppressing and browbeating everyone who dares to defy them, refusing to kowtow to a new global religion which opposes the Law of Natural Reason written upon our hearts and all that is of God.

 

Whither Catholicism?

 

It may seem dark & hopeless.

 

Notwithstanding, taking the long view (from humanity’s short perspective), Our Creator never relinquishes control. He foreknew our era, gives us His Protection so long as we endeavor to obey all of His Commandments, and promises us that His Mother --- the Immaculate Queen that He chose to bear His Son --- will crush the Serpent’s Head.

 

Understanding the Apocalypse enables us to grasp this Divine Plan.

 

Yesterday I had the privilege to see the first total solar eclipse to traverse the whole of America, from west to east, since June of 1918. I took my family to a remote location a mile high in the Ochoco National Forest, next to a lovely little mountain lake, and witnessed what many an astronomer has called unforgettable no matter how often they experience it, and which no camera can ever properly record or visual medium adequately replay.

 

So-called ‘totality’ during this eclipse occurred on 21 August 2017 in the morning.

 

For at least two minutes I and the small crowd gathered there in the middle of nowhere watched as a spectacular corona shone forth, like the ‘crown’ that it is, around the disk of the moon, an eerie yet beautiful darkness enveloping our small part of the earth. I can only presume that this corona --- easily 2 or 3 times bigger than the apparent diameter of our natural satellite --- is a result of a delayed ‘solar maximum’ after the unusually deep ‘solar minimum’ reached circa 2009. Or, perchance not. All I can say is that the corona I saw was much bigger than I expected it to be, and that the ecliptic darkness, while striking, was less than I anticipated, so bright was the halo of glory surrounding the lunar orb.

 

The significance?

 

Apart from being the first total solar eclipse to cross our nation from west to east for 99 years, it took place during the 100th anniversary of the six apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima, who appeared to three humble shepherd children in the troubled but still staunchly Catholic country of Portugal from May 13 to October 13 in 1917. This same year saw the first Communist government in the world with Russia’s bloodthirsty ‘October Revolution’ (November, according to the Gregorian calendar), the monumental Balfour Declaration in Great Britain, and the promulgation of a ‘new’ and systematized Canon Law for the Roman Catholic Church that became officially binding the following year on Pentecost, May of 1918.

 

Our Lady of Fatima clearly invoked the Apocalypse, the final book of the Bible, where Beloved St. John the Evangelist speaks of a celestial woman clothed with the sun, standing upon the moon, and crowned by twelve stars. As a few of traditional sentiment have noted, claiming the name of Catholic, the sun and moon and various planets or stars have congregated in the zodiacal sign of Virgo (the ‘Virgin’) since November of 2016. The monarchic Jupiter has thus been in the ‘womb’ of the Virgin and will ‘exit’ in a kind of heavenly ‘birth’ in September, less than a month from now. The symbolism is palpable.

 

As that brilliant corona visibly encircled the moon, I could not help seeing God’s Hand in it all, purposely displaying for the whole wide world how He delights in honoring His Son’s Mother, the Blessed Ever-Virgin Mary. She stands upon the moon and the moon is Her metaphor, reflecting the light of the sun exactly as She reflects Her Son’s Divine Light. Eclipsing this effulgence, His Glory radiates around Her, adorning Her in regal attire. Another of Mary’s empyrean symbols, beautiful Venus, appeared in the darkened sky, beckoning as one of the rewards for loyal Catholics (Apocalypse 2:28 & 22:16), doubling, additionally, as a symbol of Her Son, God Almighty from all of eternity, Who took on Her Immaculate Flesh as His Own Flesh, incarnated as a humble babe on this earth. Making the appearance of Jupiter on the opposite side of the moon during the eclipse equally symbolic, He being the King of Kings and Creator of all things in heaven or on earth, and using Her Flesh to make atonement on the Cross for the sins of an unbelieving world… and all so we human beings may join with His Body via the Sacrament of Baptism and a Profession of His Singular Faith, Roman Catholicism, outside of which no one can hope to be saved or enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

 

This eclipse transpired on the sixth day of the Octave of the Assumption.

 

It also was a mere day prior to the Feast of Her Immaculate Heart.

 

And, were that not enough, right near the end of the month’s time assigned, since ancient times on a solar calendar, for the zodiacal sign of Leo (the Lion, symbolizing Queen Mary’s Son, Jesus Christ, as the Lion of the Tribe of Juda, King above all other kings), and literally right before the zodiacal sign of Virgo begins (the Virgin, as aforementioned, symbolizing the miraculous birth of Jesus Christ, the God Man, to His Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary). Leo begins July 23rd and finishes on August 22nd, whilst Virgo begins August 23rd and ends on September 23rd.

 

Perceiving the allegory?

 

Time will tell what God has in Mind.

 

I simply note the signs and point to Catholic Prophecy.

                               

As well, I have striven to show anyone, who will pay attention, that it is the Great Apostasy we are enduring. What’s more, that only God’s New Testament Ark --- His One Holy Roman Catholic Church --- can preserve us from the Great Deluge of God’s Wrath upon a rebellious earth, just as only His Old Testament Ark --- the vessel of Noe wherein but he and his wife, plus his three sons and their wives --- saved eight souls by means of a visible, redemptive, buoyant wood.

 

Again, perceiving the allegory?

 

Ponder hard.

 

  Feast of St. Anacletus, Pope & Martyr, and 100th Anniversary of the 3rd of 6 Apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima, 2017 (7-13-17)

 

Uploaded the first section of Part Five of the tome, Helplessly Ignorant, which amounts to seven chapters and continues the interpretation of the ‘beast out of the sea’ in Sacred Scripture’s closing book, the Apocalypse, as well as furthers the sixth of seven devastating logical arguments against the most dominant contemporary heresy of ‘salvation-in-the-state-of-invincible-ignorance-and-sincerity’ for people of sound minds.

 

By the end of Part Four, we’d already described the initial two ‘heads’ of this oceanic beast. With the beginning of Part Five, we grapple with the third ‘head’ and explain in some detail the primary means of determining the correct understanding of what these ‘heads’ must represent from Heaven’s point of view and God’s timeless omniscience.

 

Incidentally, whilst either having the outline of a book or article given to me, so to speak, or else working it out in modest detail prior to writing it, the actual composing can be very organic and more like ‘exploration’ than a mere ‘mechanics’ or ‘engineering’. As such, I’d originally thought Helplessly Ignorant would amount to five parts total. Now I realize it’ll consist of six parts. This is as symbolic as the apocalyptic ‘monster’ we’re fathoming.

 

That is to say, six is the number of man & rebellion.

 

Ergo why it’s appropriate that it have six parts.

 

Likewise the book started previous to this, Baptismal Confusion.

 

Dealing with the many erroneous ideas lots of persons have about the Sacrament of Baptism --- the means Our Creator has granted us in order to be joined to His Church Body and thus to He Himself --- and how this confusion has been the doorway to the Great Apostasy that we now endure, it is appropriate it has seven parts.

 

To wit, the number of God & Heaven is seven.

 

Helplessly Ignorant and Baptismal Confusion are the first two of three ‘major’ books in the past few years. Major because they’re long and complex, not to mention concerned with subjects so crucial to our present era. The third ‘major’ book, for which I now have the outline and, Almighty God willing, shall post before this year is out, is Inter Regnum.

 

And what is it about?

 

So-called ‘sedevacantism’.

 

This is simply a word derived from ‘sede vacante’, Latin for ‘the seat is empty’.

 

People who consider themselves Catholic nowadays (and whether they really are or not, failing to hold God’s Singular Religion whole & entire by howsoever a ‘little bit’, rejecting even one of His Church’s simple & infallible dogmas), who are of a more ‘conservative’ or ‘traditional’ bent, often know Catholicism uses this phrase to describe the ‘seat’, or ‘throne’, of St. Peter in-between two popes. I.e., when one pope dies and another pope is not yet elected.

 

In the blindness of the Great Apostasy, such persons act as if the Church dissolves completely were St. Peter’s Throne to be empty at all… and even though Peter’s Throne is empty each & every single time a pope dies (or, very rarely, abdicates, etc.) and before a new pope can be elected! In times long gone by, it took a few months, normally, to elect a new pope. Sometimes, when cardinals wrangled endlessly, it took one or two years! Even in recent centuries it has taken at least weeks.

 

Does the Church then totally disappear when St. Peter’s Throne is empty?

 

Of course not. The ‘inter regnums’ now total 40 or more years.

 

That is, till Vatican II during the 1960s. So what’s the real hang up?

 

Such people act, without being rational, as if there’s an unspecified but ‘magical’ amount of time beyond which, they assume, the Throne cannot sit vacant. They also assume, just as irrationally and also contradictorily, that the Throne is never empty. How can this be?

 

Because they are driven by prejudice and don’t bother to think about it.

 

The Church obviously doesn’t fall to pieces utterly just because there’s no pope.

 

On the other hand, plainly, it’s best to elect a new pope quickly.

 

The question is, how long does God allow it to take?

 

Such people are ignorant in this matter. It is indisputable during the past millennium that God, in one instance, let Peter’s Throne sit empty for two-and-a-half years. During the first millennium (though modern scholars doubt it today), the vacancy went up to around four years. What is the maximum possible time of vacancy, then?

 

There is no real answer for this yet.

 

God has not said, and the Church has never explicitly ruled.

 

As a result, it’s completely up to Our Creator… and we mere human beings shouldn’t draw an arbitrary line out of thin air.

 

This is the Great Apostasy, the “operation of error” foretold long ago.

 

(See 2 Thessalonians 2:10 DRC in Sacred Scripture for St. Paul’s Holy-Ghost-inspired words regarding this future time (in relation to him) that we’re living through right now in our own epoch of the Great Apostasy.)

 

Consequently, just as God allowed His Divinely Begotten Son to die upon the Cross and to lie dead in the Tomb for three days, so, too, can He choose to let His Son’s Ecclesial Body perish upon a Modernist Cross and lay in the Tomb as ‘dead’ for a time determined by Him, the Hierarchy apparently gone, leaving their thrones empty --- including St. Peter’s Throne --- according to Our Creator’s Will, in punishment for our multitudinous sins, the greatest of which is stubborn, blind rejection of His One True Catholic Religion whole & entire.

 

This is why I prefer the term ‘inter regnum’, Latin for ‘between reigns’.

 

God plainly allows for an empty throne between popes.

 

The question is, how long can it take?

 

It’s wholly up to God how long the time between papal reigns might be.

 

And if under the Amos Curse, the “operation of error” when almost everyone --- including purported ‘catholics’ who aren’t really what they say they are since they don’t profess the Catholic Faith whole & entire --- is wandering astray, then how can we have the audacity to pretend we know how long God might let the ignorance and confusion go on? It’s His Decision, not ours.

 

This is why I prefer the Latin phrase ‘inter regnum’. Truly, we’re between papal reigns. The purported ‘popes’ we’ve had since Vatican II are antipopes, being non-Catholic. They cannot occupy Peter’s Throne since they visibly defy God’s Religion, having been automatically excommunicated under Canon Law, if ever visibly Catholic to begin with.

 

It is our fate & punishment, our just desserts for many terrible sins.

 

It is therefore appropriate this book have five parts.

 

Just as Jesus suffered five wounds, so, also, His Church Body five wounds.

 

Which is why I expect, right now, the third ‘major’ book, to make up five parts. Five parts for five wounds. Two to His feet, two to His hands, one to His side where the spear pierced. All of the arguments, though, will amount to seven --- paralleling the seven arguments in the presently uploading book, Helplessly Ignorant.

 

Five parts, though, to mirror five wounds.

 

The date today, however?

 

St. Anacletus was our third pope.

 

He rose to the occasion, as his Greek-derived name implies, in the 1st century. Friend of the Apostles, he ruled for some ten years. Like all the ancient popes, he died a martyr --- the ultimate test of a real Catholic’s Faith. Are you willing to die for it, precious soul?

 

You’re going to have to be, if that’s what God requires.

 

Only a real Catholic has Hope of Salvation.

 

All intelligent souls dying as non-Catholics wind up in hell.

 

One hundred years ago today, the three children of Our Lady of Fatima were given a brief yet appalling glimpse of hell at the very heart of our earth. What they saw, per Sister Lucy (a Carmelite nun as she attained to adulthood), was terrifying. Per her, had the vision gone a second longer, they’d have died from fright & horror. It is for this reason Our Lady of Fatima appeared… to help lost souls become Catholic, and, once Roman Catholic, persevere in grace till, and especially at, death, so as to be eternally secure in God’s Singularly Roman Catholic Body.

 

The upshot?

 

Let us imitate Pope St. Anacletus, bravely dying a martyr, and the children of Fatima, two of whom --- Jacinta and Francisco --- died in terrible suffering, all alone. Meanwhile, Sister Lucia, the longest lived of the three seers, suffered her own cross in living much longer, but, in her suffering, watching two popes (prior to the Vatican Pseudo-Council of the 1960s) disobey Christ’s command to consecrate Russia (and Russia alone, by name, commanding his fellow bishops throughout the world to do so along with him at the same time) to Mary’s Immaculate & Sorrowful Heart, lest horrific punishment come upon the earth for our sins. The greatest curse of all is the curse of non-Catholicity, God withholding His gratuitous graces and, as a repercussion, nations altogether losing the True Religion of Catholicism, wandering into apostasy & rebellion & grotesque sin of the worst kinds, eagerly embracing the Religion of Modernism unto everlasting death.

 

Hideous?

 

Truly.

 

Impossible?

 

No, because God has never officially & explicitly limited the time between popes. And the ‘perpetual succession’ infallibly defined at the Vatican Council of 1869 to 1870, never meant, nor could it ever logically mean, that there is no gap of any time at all between legitimate popes. It clearly & logically meant only that there would always be another pope to come until Jesus’ Return, without that Council ever defining, period, how long an ‘inter regnum’ could last.

 

There will be seven devastating arguments in the Inter Regnum book, proving that the misnomeredsedevacantism’ is not only possible, but, indeed, the sole logical explanation for what’s going on today during the Great Apostasy. Christ died and was laid in the Tomb. Likewise, His Church Body ‘dies’, as it were, near the end, laid in the Tomb.

 

It’s God’s Church, not ours.

 

We’re merely members of it, if truly Catholic.

 

Read the latest installment to Helplessly Ignorant to better understand.

 

Peruse Inter Regnum, too, to better comprehend, when it’s posted.

 

Our epoch is dark & confusing, as well as shocking.

 

Nonetheless, it is not wholly unprecedented.

 

Nor can we pretend it’s impossible.

 

It’s not. It’s real and it’s here.

 

If really Catholic, we must obey, we must persevere, and we must be humiliated by looking, superficially, as if we ‘disobey’ the Church’s Authority. Whereas, in reality, we obey the authority of God’s Holy Roman Church by refusing to obey, and spurn, those who are not truly & visibly Catholic and thus not truly & visibly in authority over God’s Roman Catholic Church.

 

But who, in their fraud, pretend to be ‘catholic’… and pretend to ‘lead’.

 

This is Our Cross, this our punishment & reality.

 

If truly Catholic, persevere.

 

If not truly Catholic, get real, convert, and persevere.

 

In either situation, heed the warning and do what we must to save our immortal souls:

 

Be a real Roman Catholic, defying --- with tenacious humility --- an entire arrogant world hell bent on rebellion against Our Creator, the Triune God of the Roman Catholic Church, His One & Only Body, and, hence, His One & Only Means of Salvation for any human being on earth since the time of Christ.

 

End of sentence.

 

Jesus Christ’s Ecclesial Body will resurrect in the not-too-distant future.

 

We can be a part of this resurrection if truly Catholic, persevering.

 

May Jesus’ Sacred & Suffering Heart keep us steadfast daily.

 

May Mary’s Immaculate & Sorrowful Heart uplift us.

 

May God’s Will be done in everything, amen.

 

  Feast of the Holy Apostles Ss. Peter & Paul, 2017 (6-29-17)

 

Posted a very brief short story called The Fruit.

 

For various reasons I have put it in The Great Apostasy section, which you can find in the Navigation panel to your left. You can also easily link to it in the Quiklinks panel to your right. All webpage titles change to a cloud-like white as you hover over it.

 

What is the point of this short story?

 

We are in the midst of the long foretold Great Apostasy.

 

Furthermore, this website, by its very nature, tends to focus on the purely logical and scholarly presentation of the truth that is necessary to save our immortal souls. That is to say, I dare to say that I am Catholic (however unworthy I am of the name) and that, reading what I have written carefully, with intelligent thought and without predisposed bias, that you can discover how to be Catholic, and, once Catholic (or Catholic for the first time), what it is you must think, say or do to save your soul.

 

Which is?

 

To look like Our Creator, and to be what it is He formed human beings --- the creature made in His Image --- to accomplish for His Singular Purpose, pleasing Him completely, and thus enter Heaven after bodily death in this transitory terrestrial existence, and so unite with Him in absolute & intimate happiness forever and forever, like husband and wife head over heels in love, world without end, amen.

 

Yet what is this story about?

 

It is a ‘silent dialogue’ because only one character speaks.

 

That is to say, the other character is implied… but with no dialogue recorded.

 

What’s more, if printed out in hard copy in a standard font, a mere two pages would suffice.

 

But the main title?

 

Read the story to find out.

 

All I will say right here is that the title is at the heart of the Catholic Faith.

 

Curious?

 

Then read the story.

 

Put in terms of human probability, most Roman Catholics will never be great saints on this earth. And without ecclesial shepherds --- truly Catholic priests and bishops and, yes, even a true & legitimate Roman Catholic pope sitting upon the Throne of St. Peter in Rome --- then, literally, we are, temporarily, as real Roman Catholics… few as we are during the Great Apostasy and the hideous global rebellion that we’re enduring… sheep without a shepherd.

 

What are we to do?

 

What must we do, poor & frightened sheep, to please God?

 

How do we, in such terrible times --- unmatched since the worldwide rebellion right before the Great Flood, when only Noah and his three sons and their wives entered the Singular Ark --- make sure to save our souls by remaining Catholic, without denying the True Religion or wandering astray with no one on earth to protect and guide us, and so guarantee our eternal safety & happiness?

 

I’ve already addressed this in practical, scholarly terms.

 

Now I tackle it by a different approach:

 

Artistic, poetic & allegorical.

 

Why?

 

Because I wanted to. Sometimes the starkness of academic prose, all by itself, is not enough. Sometimes our souls, formed for the appreciation of beauty and something transcendent, simply isn’t enough. We hunger without most of the sacraments available (except for the mysteries of Baptism and Matrimony), spiritually starving --- or, rather, fasting --- and antiseptic prose, however true, isn’t quite enough. We hunger for something more, something almost ineffable, and this story, insufficient though it is, is a pathetic attempt… barely… to meet that gnawing need, that insatiable, ravenous longing for something bigger & supremely transcendent. Pathetic, did I say? Yes, truly, more than you might realize. Pathetic in spades.

                               

Yet hopeless?

 

No.

 

The Fruit (A Silent Dialogue in Two Pages), is a feeble stab at that incessantly gnawing hunger at the heart our emaciated souls.

 

It is, I trust, the prayer & sentiment of every real Catholic left on earth.

 

We seek, we stumble, we plod like pilgrims toward celestial hope.

 

Victorian in style, like Dickens or Doyle, the text is noble.

 

Antiquated, maybe, but civilized in a savage era.

 

May real Catholics loft it in heart, if not in words.

 

May it be the prayer, plea & profession of our hearts.

 

Today is the day we as Catholics honor the founding bishops of the Diocese of Rome.

 

We as humans, Catholic though we are, cannot accomplish the resurrection of God’s Ecclesial Body (His One & Only Roman Catholic Church) solely on our own. It will take a concerted effort between us --- seemingly fragmented and separated by distance as we are --- and the Sovereign Will of God Almighty, working through us or in spite of us, just as He did in the face of overwhelming physical odds, like another Day of Pentecost, pouring out His Spirit upon the few faithful, revivifying the Hierarchy and give us wise leadership, leading us into green pastures and protecting our souls, thereby allowing us to accomplish more than we could imagine possible, left to our meager devices, striving against a wicked & impudent world.

 

Think this impossible?

 

Humanly speaking, it is indeed.

 

Divinely speaking… no, it is not. God can and will give us what we need.

 

We must simply wait upon the Lord, doing all that we can, standing steadfast in the teachings we have received, deviating neither to the left nor the right. We don’t want to be Catholic fundamentalists (may God forbid!), notwithstanding, with humility and perseverance, opposing all that is modernistic and against the law of natural reason and therefore diabolically calculated to destroy our souls in the pit of hell forevermore, may we resist this anti-Catholic spirit and hideous rebellion, working out our salvation with fear & trembling.

 

That is our duty. Therein lies our hope of salvation. Such is our way of escape.

 

Not in human cleverness; not in brute force; but by the Spirit of God.

 

So read the story --- it’s not that long.

 

If only a psychological boost, it’s worth a brief perusal.

 

And, who knows? It just might help you to get through this hideous time.

 

Triune Catholic God Almighty, help us to persevere & overcome!

 

All you saints & angels of the Divinity, His spiritual children, help us in our spiritual need! Do not let the devil gain the upper hand. Do not let him win everything during this terrible era. Don’t permit the elect to fall and never rise again. Don’t let him overcome us. Help us, we plead, and, religiously famished though we are, devoid of most of the Sacraments of Your Singular Church, let us await with holy resignation, kissing our crosses and making our way through a spiritual Jerusalem, ready to die and be crucified in our sins --- however guiltless we may be for the sins of which they accuse us --- knowing we deserve all that we suffer, punished, and even though we may be unfairly impugned, hated for our goodness, for our unfailing testimony to the Divine Truth of His One, Holy, Roman, Catholic & Apostolic Church, murdered and tortured in the end… and even though we may die, hated for Our Lord, suffering rejected and despised for the Testimony of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Holy Roman Catholic and none other… perfectly clean, winning great reward, outside of which no man or woman can hope to be saved. It is time and the time is now. We witness the beginning of the end. The final battle between fallen angel and immaculate virgin is happening this very moment. There is no doubt remaining for the human being who has eyes to see and ears to hear. There is no confusion remaining for he or she who has a mind to fathom and a conscience to distinguish between true & false, right & wrong.

 

It is time.

 

May Jesus’ Sacred & Suffering Heart bestow upon us the graces to see.

 

May Mary’s Immaculate & Sorrowful Heart grant you the heart to persevere.

 

She will crush the Serpent’s Head; we are but the sole of Her immaculate foot, helping with our very life’s blood to crush his dragonic skull.

 

We may die in this endeavor. Certainly we die, bloodlessly, in our hearts.

 

We give up all our hopes & dreams to follow the Truth That Saves.

 

For who can covet the world while saving his or her soul?

 

That isn’t the deal, that is not what God promises us.

 

Like St. Bernadette of Our Lady of Lourdes, we die.

 

Painfully, and shorn of all our terrestrial dreams.

 

That’s the deal, that’s what we suffer under.

 

So read the story and take hope… it’s the truth.

 

Painful, yes, but guaranteed to bring us into Heaven.

 

An eternal happiness making every tribulation on earth worthwhile.

 

Don’t give up. We have no option to fall into despair. We are closer to our salvation than ever before…

 

Ad Jesum per Mariam. Ad majorem Dei gloriam. Extra Ecclesiam nulla Salus. ¡Viva Cristo Rey!

 

  Feast of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist, 2017 (6-24-17)

 

Uploaded another and bigger passage of the first section of the seventh & last part of the book, Baptismal Confusion. You may link to it here. You can also go to it in the Books & Articles section of this website to the left, or in the Quiklinks to your right.

 

You’ll recall I posted in April the first of four devastating arguments against the mistaken notion that the 1917 Code of Canon Law, with one often cited canon as supposed ‘proof’ of BOD (as well as a second canon sometimes cited, too, yet not often), somehow makes the theological opinion of ‘baptism of desire’ (BOD) magically ‘infallible’… or, at least, beyond reasonable dispute.

 

This is nonsense, and the chapters now online make it clear.

 

The first three of four devastating arguments against ‘BOD-is-in-canon-law-so-you-have-to-believe-in-it’ display the total absurdity of any body (i.e., collection) of canon law --- at least in the past few centuries --- being correctly thought an act of ‘papal infallibility’.

 

Ergo, if not an act of papal infallibility, you can be a true & good Catholic whilst respectfully & intelligently disagreeing with the purported ‘wisdom’, ‘compassion’ and ‘rightness’ of these two canons. As long as you stay true to what the Catholic Church has explicitly & infallibly taught, then, provided you have excellent & orthodox reasons for doing so, you can indeed humbly, respectfully & intelligently disagree with the theological opinion expressed in them.

 

And why would this be, again?

 

By definition, the 1917 Code of Canon Law is most certainly NOT an act of infallible papal definition or condemnation (pun most indubitably intended!). Wherefore, the 1917 Code, as an irrefutable logical consequence, is an act of papal authority and NOT papal infallibility.

 

Yet don’t we always have to obey?

 

Good Catholics obey any legitimate authority with jurisdiction when the authority is plainly commanding rightly. Notwithstanding, when this legitimate authority commands wrongly, or doesn’t have jurisdiction, or the thing commanded is dubious, you may, with respect, intelligently demur. Forsooth, if plainly in the wrong, you are obligated to demur!

 

This is merely the distinction between rational obedience & blind obedience.

 

Yes, a simple-minded or uneducated Catholic can sometimes inculpably obey a legitimate authority with jurisdiction commanding wrongly or dubiously, or an authority without jurisdiction trying to command him or her, even if the command is good & wise.

 

Notwithstanding, once the simple-minded or uneducated Catholic is informed, this excuse flies out the window. And an earnest, humble Catholic does not go around automatically condemning someone more intelligent or more trained than he, without first grappling cautiously & meticulously with what the more intelligent or more trained Catholic is saying. Acting otherwise is foolish at best and wicked at worst!

 

Consequently, dear reader, you are confronted with both the opportunity and --- if adequately intelligent --- the moral obligation to read this book, Baptismal Confusion, carefully & thoroughly. Blithely refusing to do so or skimming here-and-there doesn’t cut it.

 

You will face judgment, and Our Creator will not let you off the hook just because you don’t have the patience, humility or curiosity to investigate. The present confusion over the Sacrament of Baptism is that important, the Great Apostasy we are going through that dangerous & hideous.

 

This is your chance to make sure you’re Catholic, make sure you stay a true Catholic, and make sure you die a good Catholic, in the state of grace. There is no other way to save your soul.

 

What’s the most recent addition to the book about, though?

 

We investigate the other two arguments against the supposed ‘infallibility’ of canon law, as well as ancient & authoritative testimony from the 1st millennium and find out, to our surprise (if you haven’t learned about these things already), that ancient Catholics never, never, never allowed ‘accidentally dead’ and unbaptized catechumens to be buried in the hallowed ground of a Roman Catholic cemetery.

 

Period.

 

Don’t want to believe it?

 

No matter. The evidence is there.

 

You just have to be humble enough to look.

 

In addition to the ancient testimony, I’ve cited not one, not two, or even three highly respected theological experts of the past century-and-a-half, but, indeed, FOUR EMINENT PRIESTLY THEOLOGIANS & SCHOLARS, each of whom makes it clear the 1917 Code of Canon Law dared to innovate and allow… as a general rule for the first time ever in the Church’s long history… the corpses of unbaptized souls to be buried in the consecrated parts of Catholic cemeteries.

 

Again, don’t want to believe it?

 

Then read the latest post.

 

What’s online now for Part 7 of Baptismal Confusion is conclusive.

 

The evidence is stark, the logic impeccable, and the academic sources unimpeachable.

 

All you’ve got to do is look and think. Is that so hard?

 

Not if you care about the truth.

 

Today is the Feast of St. John the Baptist’s Nativity.

 

I can’t think of a better day to upload this post.

 

St. John’s baptism wasn’t a sacrament.

 

It didn’t confer the Holy Ghost.

 

But he did prepare the way.

 

Behold the Lamb of God!

 

The world began in water (creation); it was cleansed in water (flood); we begin in water (procreation); and we are cleansed in water (baptism). It behooves us to get the confusion over the Sacrament of Baptism cleared up. I’m not a pope, I don’t pretend to define infallibly. I merely point out the obvious:

 

That the Great Apostasy won’t go away until we get this confusion cleared up, and, if you are careless and arrogant about the Sacrament of Baptism, refusing to acknowledge the facts, then you not only help continue the confusion and our apostasy, but ensure that your eternal fate culminates in hell… at least temporarily (purgatory) and, much more likely, permanently (eternal damnation). Please look at the Lamb, heed his herald, John the Baptist, and think everything through carefully with me. If it’s truth you want, then that’s not too much to ask.

 

  Easter Monday and the Feast of St. Anicetus, 2017 (4-17-17)

 

Posted the very first part of the seventh & last part of the book, Baptismal Confusion.

 

I’ve long wanted to finish and upload the rest of Baptismal Confusion, but got sidetracked by the latest book, Helplessly Ignorant. (You’ll remember I woke up one morning having the scriptural quotes and the whole outline of the latter book in my mind, having a sense that it was timely and imperative to write it and get it online.) But why only the very first part of the former?

 

I had written much of this very first part well over a year ago.

 

Then a person close to me happened to mention that someone he knew had, despite reserving judgment for some time, come down on the side of BOD (‘baptism of desire’). And why was this? Because, said he, this someone had been told that BOD is ‘proven’ by the Church’s Code of Canon Law. The very thing that I had, some two years ago, already addressed (but not posted yet) and knew --- from long and careful research --- is not very good ‘proof’ of BOD at all.

 

In fact, it’s pretty much the worst evidence.

 

And, indeed… (surprisingly for those who have not studied or gotten truly familiar with all of the facts about these things)… astonishingly powerful evidence, in the final analysis, for the completely opposite side --- the position of WO (‘water only’) that BOD lovers hate so much.

 

Now, I haven’t had time to finish up the four devastating points against the BOD enthusiast’s ‘it’s-in-canon-law’ argument, showing, clearly and irrefutably, how it actually turns against them and winds up revealing the totally opposite thing… that BOD is brought into stark questionableness when you examine the history of canon law and baptism from the 1st millennium till our present time.

 

But I have uploaded, in a mere six chapters (five, really, if you discount the first of the six, which simply segues from the earlier majority of the book into the final and last part), the initial devastating point against the BOD argument of ‘it’s-in-the-1917-Code-of-Canon-Law’.

 

That it most certainly is not, and cannot be, an act of papal infallibility.

 

Don’t believe it?

 

Then read a mere 5 or 6 chapters and PROVE IT TO ME.

 

I mean, what have you got to lose, dear soul? You’re utterly confident, right?

 

Then surely, tender reader, if you’re so smart and so confident, then you’ll see right through my logical reasoning and thoroughly referenced & cited evidence. Which means, in turn, if you have any charity and compassion, that you’ll be able to assist me and let me know where, precisely, I’m wrong, and that Church’s Canon Law is always & wholly ‘infallible’.

 

That is, after all, what a good and helpful Catholic would do.

 

It’s what Christ did for us, and what His Vicar did, too. I.e., aside from today being Easter Monday (literally, the Monday right after Easter Sunday when Jesus resurrected), April 17 is the feast day of St. Anicetus on the universal sanctoral calendar. He was Bishop of Rome, and hence Pope of the Roman Catholic Church, during the middle of the 2nd century. Per the Martyrology and other ancient accounts, he fought with various strands of Gnosticism, a virulent heresy afflicting true Christians (read: Catholics) from the 1st to the 3rd centuries.

 

A Syrian by birth, his name is from the Greek Aniketos and means ‘unconquered’.

 

Let real Roman Catholics today, during the Great Apostasy, imitate both his name and his example, rejecting the Modernist Heresy which tyrannizes the world right now and has infected people who still call themselves ‘catholic’ since the Vatican II Pseudo-Council of the turbulent 1960s, being, in reality, Novus Ordoists (from the Latin Novus Ordo for ‘new order’). Novus Ordoists have apostatized from the Catholic Faith, no longer believing in it whole & entire.

 

Even the more ‘conservative’ or ‘traditional’ of them are guilty of this crime, God punishing such people --- who still call themselves by His Name --- by sending an ‘operation of error’ and a consequent blindness toward what the ancient dogma of ‘no Salvation outside the Church’ has always meant, with no ifs, ands or buts. To wit, that there is no exception to this rule for the person of sound & intelligent mind, with a so-called ‘invincible ignorance’ not ever meaning what they have claimed, and, therefore, no purportedly ‘invisible’ connection to Christ’s Catholic Body via an ‘implicit desire’ for water baptism with no real Catholic Faith.

 

It’s coming down to the wire, beloved soul.

 

It’s time to make up your mind.

 

Do you want the Truth?

 

Or do you want a Lie?

 

Look very carefully.

 

And choose wisely.

 

It’s extremely difficult nowadays to think correctly… but still not impossible.

 

Not if you ask, seek & knock. Not if you humbly implore the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and the graces and wisdom of the Holy Ghost to see straight. We are commanded to be perfect as the Heavenly Father is perfect, and this perfection includes being perfect in each of His Holy Religion’s infallible dogmas.

 

It should have been clear to us with the confusion and lies of the heinous Vatican II.

 

Can you not see with Antipope Francis being blatantly anti-Catholic?

 

This is the final battle between the Serpent and the Woman.

 

Don’t sell yourself short for sake of safety & prestige.

 

Doesn’t a human soul outweigh the world?

 

Extra Ecclesiam nulla Salus.

 

Ad majorem Dei gloriam.

 

Ad Jesum per Mariam.

 

May Truth reign.

 

  Friday of the Fourth Week of Lent and 9th Anniversary of The Epistemologic Works, 2017 (3-31-17)

 

Uploaded most of the rest of the 4th part (albeit, not everything yet) of the latest book, Helplessly Ignorant, on this website, The Epistemologic Works.

 

Here we explain further how the world got into the Great Apostasy, and what the seemingly fantastic or bizarre parts of the Apocalypse (the last book of the Bible, what Protestants call ‘Revelation’ or, more often --- and incorrectly --- ‘Revelations’ in the plural) mean. I.e., precisely what are we to make of a Beast out of the Sea with seven heads & ten crowns?

 

Curious?

 

Then take a look, read carefully, and think intelligently.

 

If ever there was a time when we can understand these things far better than before, that time is now.
