January's Poop Video - Celebrating Some Rites But Not Others

Below is January's poop video and below it I will unpack this hypocritical slop.

By "diversity of rites", does he mean allowing Anglicans to conduct their parodies of Vespers and Mass in Catholic basilicas in Rome?  That is sacrilege - to allow Catholic churches to be used in a trivialization of Holy Mass.  But that's not the first time such a sacrilege happened.  Remember four years ago, when some conclave ended?  Francis himself said Mass when he placed a pachamama plant on the altar - an act of idolatry?

So protestants have admittance to Catholic churches for their mutated rites, pachamama idols are placed on our consecrated altars during Mass, but the Mass of the Ages is being shut down all over the world?  Folks, are we awake yet?

Maryland Citizens - Action Needed On Assisted Suicide Bills In Annapolis

The pro-death cartel keep hammering away, trying to snuff life out on the older end of the spectrum.  As persistent as they are, we must be no less so.

Tomorrow, Tuesday Jan 30, Maryland citizens, guided by Marylanders Against Assisted Suicide, will be conducting in-person lobbying in Annapolis.  The details that I received today are below:

Maryland Right to Life has some instructions regarding emails and phone calls, along with important dates and deadlines.

Additionally, there is a mechanism by which written testimony can be submitted by those who cannot make the trip to Annapolis.  The directions are below:


1. Go to Maryland General Assembly  (https://mgaleg.maryland.gov/)

2. Go to the upper right hand corner and click "MYMGA" Sign in or create an account. Name, address and password. Follow the prompts to confirm through your email. this will take you to the next page.

3. On the next page click "witness signup" and SCROLL TO FIND THE CORRECT SENATE OR HOUSE BILL.

4. Go to the "position" dropdown and choose the appropriate one

5. Go to the next drop down "testimony" and choose "written" (if giving written testimony, if not, choose neither written or oral testimony.)

6.  In a separate PDF file on your computer WRITE A SIMPLE PARAGRAPH AS TO WHY YOU ARE FOR/AGAINST THE BILL. (If you choose to give written testimony)

7. Upload the testimony PDF file and hit "OK". 

8. On the upper left hand corner of the witness sign up page click "SAVE"

9. A pop-up box will appear.  click "OK" (the pop up box will go away)

10. Look for the "signed up items" tab and click on it.  you will see your bill, your position and your testimony.

The bill numbers, for House and Senate are SB0443 and HB0403 respectively.

As citizens, we have certain rights, but with these rights come serious responsibilities.  We cannot afford to give legislative matters our attention only during elections.

US History In The Making - Traditional Latin Mass Celebrated In The US Capitol

Yesterday, January 23, was the one-year anniversary of the FBI internal memo that dealt with their monitoring of Catholics (whom they dubbed "radical-traditionalist Catholics") who attend the Traditional Latin Mass.  I wrote a bit about it when a whistleblower made the memo public.  So how was that anniversary commemorated?  In a quite glorious fashion!

For the first time in the nation's history, the Traditional Latin Mass was offered inside the Capitol, specifically to commemorate that memo and to show that we simply won't be cowed by either the FBI's anti-Catholic bigotry nor by Traditionis Custodes.  I understand it was a high Mass.  It was organized by the Arlington Latin Mass Society, with the assistance of House Speaker Mike Johnson.  The approval of the Archdiocese of Washington was not sought; for that reason, the identity of the celebrating priest must be kept under wraps.  Recall that, speaking of the Traditional Latin Mass, Cardinal Gregory said that "tradition dies a slow death".  He disregards one key component of a bishop's task, to guard tradition, not destroy it.

It was attended by over 50 people, many of them congressional staff workers.  The celebration of that Mass must have been a source of grace for that building and its inhabitants, grace that is sorely needed.  But, oh, to have been a fly on the wall of Cardinal Gregory's office when he learned of that Mass!  Pray for the man.

Lepanto Institute On Deep Church And Deep State

Below I will post tonight's episode of the Anchor Team, where Michael Hichborn and Jesse Romero discuss the deep state and deep church and the not-at-all-coincidental similarities between the two.    Let us all know what you think in the comment box!

Note: Very early in this program, they were commenting about a movie trailer.  Youtube cited a copyright violation (although their usage fell well within the Fair Use Doctrine).  The clip can be watched here.

Come And Listen To Those Fighting The Proposed Abortion Amendment For Maryland

This coming Sunday, January 14 in Silver Spring Maryland, two leaders of the fight against the proposed "Reproductive Freedom" amendment in Maryland: Deborah Brocato of Health Not Harm MD and Sheila Wharam of Memorares for Maryland.  I touched upon these organizations in the post from two days ago.  Below is the flyer.  It is downloadable, so please use it to invite others.  Thanks.

Introducing Health Not Harm MD And The Fight To Keep Abortion Out of the Maryland Constitution

Two months ago I made mention of a proposed amendment to the Maryland state constitution that, if passed, will enshrine a legal right to murder babies in the constitution.  While there is a prayer effort afoot called Memorares for Maryland, we know we need tangible, practical action to combat this threat.

Therefore I was delighted to learn of the existence of Health Not Harm MD.  This organization was created for the express purpose of combatting this insidious amendment to the constitution of Maryland.  I urge one and all, especially Maryland residents, to get on board with this group and to be prepared to participate in its efforts.  Sign up for their alerts and follow their social media pages.

Do so now.  The election is less than one year away.

Prefect Of The Dicastery For The Doctrine Of The Faith - A Porn Author

Cardinal Victor Manuel Fernandez, aka Kissy-Face, published a book in 1995 called "Heal Me With Your Mouth: The Art Of Kissing", for which he is rightly derided.  Now comes the news that several years later, in 1998, he published a far worse book called "The Mystical Passion".  If it's not pornographic, I don't know what is.  Complicit Clergy links to the book.  Be warned, it is quite graphic.  Think about that last statement.  We're talking of the writings of a priest, not some seedy pervert in a slum.  Well, come to think of it, maybe they're both correct (save for the "slum" descriptor.

Consider that he was already a priest when he penned that filth.  He could only write it if it was in his mind.  I don't know what's worse: its salacious statements or the blasphemous ones.  Given the vetting that the Vatican does when it elevates people to trusted positions, they had to have known about both books.  So Francis elevated Kissy despite his porn-dabbling?  Is it "despite" or is it "because"?

On one hand, we have Bishop Strickland being given the heave-ho for allowing the Traditional Latin Mass to be offered in his diocese.  Will Kissy-Face be let go, as well?  For the benefit of the entire Church, not to mention his own soul, he should be dismissed from his post, if not the clerical state.

Now help me out with this matter of confusion.  Kissy is Prefect of the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith - or is that Dung Heap of Filth?

Kissy-Face's Lame Attempt At Damage Control

Cardinal Victor Manuel Fernandez, aka Kissy-Face, issued yesterday what he claims to be a "clarification" of Fiducia Supplicans.  In reality, it seems nothing more than a lame attempt to throw smoke and dust into the eyes of those who clearly see the diabolical nature of the screed.

Look at section 4 of that letter.  The "theological reflection" as he calls FS, is, according to him, "a real development from what has been said about blessings in the Magisterium and the official texts of the Church".  Substitute the word "divergence" for "development" and you have a halfway-true statement.  Then he said that "the text requires an effort to think serenely, with the heart of shepherds, free from all ideology."  Italics mine.  Let's unpack that double-speak, shall we?  What is meant by "ideology" in this context is the doctrines and dogmas of the Church as handed down through the centuries, because they ultimately come from God Himself.  By the way - Kissy Face should be delighted to know that there is a place that is free of all that "ideology".  It's called hell.

He goes on to betray his disdain for the Church's teaching by saying that Francis "proposed that we think of a way of blessing that does not require the placing of so many conditions to carry out this simple gesture of pastoral closeness, which is a means of promoting openness to God in the midst of the most diverse circumstances."   These conditions are the moral teachings of the Church.  How can a desire to be free of those not be its own serious sin?   Now substitute for the phrase "most diverse circumstances" the more accurate phrase "inherently sinful situations".

As we all know by now, entire bishops' conferences and religious orders see FS for the cow plop that it is and are refusing to implement it.  So now in section 5 the arm-twisting of these clerics is underway.  In section 5, of these so-called "blessings" he says, "we are talking about something that last about 10 or 15 seconds.  Does it make sense to deny these kinds of blessings to these two people who ask for them?"  Ladies and gentlemen, when have you ever seen this kind of pouting and whining in a Church document?  What difference does it make that this act of cooperating with sin lasts only a few seconds?  Most murders take about the same amount of time.

I have neither time nor stomach to analyze this entire tome.  GloriaTV has done a nice job, as has Peter Kwasniewski in Crisis Magazine.  I will say this, though.  I dubbed Cardinal Fernandez "Kissy Face" because of that less-than-theological masterpiece (cough!) that he wrote called "Heal Me With Your Mouth - The Art Of Kissing".  After wading both through Fiducia Supplicans and this pig-slop of a "clarification", I'm glad that I didn't subject myself to the torture of reading that book.
