Flores for the Immaculate Conception (Reset Button edition)

flores-election

Seen out front of the rectory this morning.

America gets a temporary reprieve. Kind of.

Meanwhile, the fascist liberal students in Boston are having street protests to show how hateful they are of democracy, with them saying that everyone is America is wrong and only they are right and they’re going to bring down the system and that they hate America, blah blah blah. They should go to Canada with with their intellectual equals in Hollywood.

Meanwhile, the gubernatorial election results in NC are not to be finalized for some time as the race is close, with the challenger running pretty much solely in favor of older men who just maybe can’t figure out whether they are male or female having the “right” to use the same bathrooms and locker rooms as little girls, because, you know, that’s the ONLY thing liberals care about so as to bully everyone else in the state with. Conservatives listen to liberals and shrug their shoulders. If liberals note that you disagree with them they will beat you down like fascists.

Meanwhile, Obama’s executive order but really new legislation activities continue until January 19. The damage that will be done now to these United States will be incalculable…

Meanwhile, you know what we need to do? We need to start a project about getting priests to go to confession. If the laity go to confession, a lot, priests will start to go. Not all priests go to confession or only go extremely rarely, but quite a few never go. That’s the reason there is little confession time available. That’s why few go. Priests don’t talk it up. You talk it up, people will go.

When very many people get the idea that they need to press the RESET BUTTON, realizing that they are meant to be temples of the Holy Spirit, they will go to confession and have purity of heart and agility of soul and razor sharp discernment about the ills of society and how to overcome them with more coming to know our Lord, and they will be at the ready in any and every way to bring people close or closer to the Lord Jesus, our Way, our Truth, our Life, our Freedom. But let’s start with priests going to confession, regularly, frequently. That’s the key.

An Opus Dei bishop (I am not in “The Work”) was asked what to do with teens who were immersed in the aggressive ways of society with drugs and lust and what not, and who lived across the street from a Catholic church but didn’t even know where the church was or what it was. His answer was: “Offer Mass better.” Indeed. Respect and reverence and humility are so contrary to what the world has to offer, so other-worldly, that it can grab the attention even of such youngsters. Yes. But…

No priest is going to make the liturgy (Mass and all the other sacraments) better in reverence and humility unless he goes to confession with reverence for our Lord, with humility before Him. How to do that?

Hint: The Immaculate Conception is Our Lady of the Rosary, the title she gave herself in Fatima, obviously giving us a hint about how to go about this. The Rosary is our RESET BUTTON.

    “Respect and reverence and humility” are the Ultimate Protest.

    I’m fortunate to live in a place where there are many solid priests who offer confession nearly every day and go to confession themselves, many to the Marist’s at St Louis.

    Why do you suggest the dissenters should come to Canada. We definitely do not want Americans no matter what side of the political fence they are on. You people have messed up your own country, leave Canadians in peace.

    I used to go to Lake of the Woods. 😀
