Adoration of Jesus and the Star of David?

6:00 AM on the 24th Sunday after Pentecost. Notice the monstrance with six gems surrounding the Most Blessed Sacrament in the form of the Star of David. King David, subject to original sin, was imperfect, with imperfection being symbolized by the number six, that is, one short of seven. God rested on the seventh day, the day of perfection. Lest anyone be confused, perfection is proclaimed by the seventh element of the Star of David being the Eucharist. Just to be sure one understands, there is a seventh gem in the cross atop the monstrance. The Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville has this monstrance in their Eucharist Museum. I know why it’s there. It’s really heavy. Difficult to accomplish Benediction.

Anyway, Theodor Herzl founded the Zionist movement in 1897. He would later use a prayer shawl with the Star of David at their flag. But it was in 1881 that Heinrich Hofmann painted the following depiction of Christ Jesus in the Temple. Notice the Star of David emblazoned on the chair. It’s empty. This is the first meeting of the upper echelon with the Fulfillment of the entirety of Revelation, Jesus Himself. They were most impressed.

But that’s a painting. Let’s turn to archeology in Capernaum revealing what was happening at the time of Jesus. Already in Jesus’ time, the Star of David was being utilized. The Roman Centurion who built the synagogue in Capernaum in which Jesus preached, and for whose servant Jesus worked a miracle, believed in Jesus with a greater faith that anyone else in Israel. There were plenty of people, like a zillion, who believed that Jesus was the Messiah and the Divine Son of God. In constructing the Synagogue, the Centurion filled in the Star of David in honor of Jesus as the Divine Son of the Living God.

No Star of David Below. Not a fancy monstrance. This is at the mission church later that Sunday morning, 8:00 AM.

I thank Jesus that unlike, say, Austria and other places, we can still have Adoration and Confessions and Mass and all the Sacraments. I’m constantly running about, and have to fill up my stock with the oleo infirmorum used for the Last Rites. This is a great blessing from Jesus that we can do this.

Adoration in the darkness

It’s all bright in the church close to Jesus even while outside the darkness deepens even as dawn is about to break.

Did you see what lifesite has about the Dominican Republic?

Adoration and “vaccines”, conscience, moral analysis

In the Apocalypse John saw the Lamb, standing, with the wounds of slaughter upon Him. Thomas put his finger in the nail wounds and his hand into the side, the Heart of Jesus. “My Lord and my God,” he said.

Thomas didn’t say, “That happened a long time ago. It’s remote, material, bodily. What difference does it make, Jesus, you stupid failure? You’re not a man of consensus, Jesus. We don’t need that kind of thing going on here. We all ran away. That was our consensus. Get with the program, you damn fool.”

No. Instead, Thomas fell to his knees before the Son of the Living God who draws all to Himself across all of time, who said that what we do to the least of the brethren we do to Him, that is, right through the ages, from Adam until the last man is conceived. Jesus forgives, but only if we want the forgiveness.

Children fully developed, fully healthy, murdered for research and/or development and/or testing of “vaccines” now, presently, stand in front of Jesus begging for vengeance against their murderers and those benefitting from “vaccines”. Yes.

This is why it’s “impolite” to bring up this topic, why one gets brow-beaten and poo-pooed by the murderers. And while they think they are polite, merely brow-beating and poo-pooing, they can and do destroy those who are not sycophantic to them. There is no hesitation to marginalize and worse. They cannot bear to hear anything about their murder. They are too sensitive, tender in their cowardice.

There is no double effect theory applicable for evil directly committed to achieve some good, like ill gotten profit right into the future. No proportionalism is acceptable, no situation ethics. The purpose of the murder of the babies in the womb is the research and/or development and/or testing of the “vaccines” right now. It’s one continuum. It’s doing evil to achieve “good”, the very definition of murder for hire. The Pharmas wouldn’t do it without pay. Talk about mafia hit men.

But so many bishops, stopping their ears, shriek: “You know nothing at all! You do not realize that it is better for you that one man die for the people than that the whole nation perish.” Yep. They say it: “Kill those damned babies!” And then they command: “Take the damn “vaccine”, or else!”

Imagine a bishop, ordained for Jesus, reciting the wedding vows of Jesus in the first person singular, in Persona Christi, in the Person of Christ — This is my body betrayed for you in Sacrifice; this is the chalice of my blood poured out for you in Sacrifice — imagine that bishop not only betraying Jesus by insisting on the murder of those made in the image of Jesus, the least of the brethren in the womb, but also insisting that their priests, who also recite those same wedding vows at the consecrations at Holy Mass, also betray the image of Jesus in the womb by attempting to force “vaccines” on their parishes.

Imagine any bishop or priest in adoration of our Eucharistic King, Jesus, who was in the womb of dearest Immaculate Mary for nine months, imagine them in adoration congratulating themselves before Jesus for how they have betrayed the least of the brethren, those who are the image of Jesus. How surreal. How demonic.

The Venerable Fulton J Sheen cited Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn’s comment about his torture in the USSR, saying that it wasn’t the pain that terrorized him so much as looking into the eyes of his torturer and seeing no conscience at all. This is what Jesus sees in the eyes of those who adore Him but countenance murder of those made in His image: no conscience. What a fright. This is why I insist on people looking into the eyes of Jesus’ Mother, as their is a conscience to be seen in her eyes:

Adoration of the Light of the Nations in the dead of night

A rather learned poetic and papabile friend made a big deal of my usage of the phrase “dead of winter” much like “dead of night.” His inscaping of such expressions with present catastrophe was intense.

“George!” he exclaimed at midday with the bright sun blindingly reflecting off the snow, “It’s the dead of winter, the dead of winter! The dead of night!” He had many words to inscape, as do we all.

But all is expressed in the silence of that moment when the very Word became flesh and dwelt amongst us, and when that Word was silenced on the cross that the dead might come to life.

Adoration, again?! Finding Jesus?!

Finding Jesus is first of all a matter of being found by Him. If we are our own saviors we’ll never seen Him on the cross.

It’s like looking for life in the universe but first of all needing to find life in the womb.

We’ll be spending some of our sanctuary renovation money on a decent sized monstrance.

Adore Jesus anyway. No one can take away our joy in having the privilege of being crucified with Jesus.

Act of Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus (bilingual)

/// Tonight, on the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, during Adoration of our Eucharistic King, we will recite the Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus as well as the Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus in both English and Spanish. Here are those consecrations below. I include them here, because we are going to be using the increasingly hard to find older form, politically incorrect as it may be. :-) ///


Act of Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus (Pope Pius XI)

Most sweet Jesus, Redeemer of the human race, look down upon us, humbly prostrate before Thine altar. We are Thine and Thine we wish to be; but to be more surely united with Thee, behold each one of us freely consecrates himself today to Thy Most Sacred Heart.

Many, indeed, have never known Thee; many, too, despising Thy precepts, have rejected Thee. Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus, and draw them to Thy Sacred Heart.

Be Thou King, O Lord, not only of the faithful who have never forsaken Thee, but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned Thee, grant that they may quickly return to their Father’s house, lest they die of wretchedness and hunger.

Be Thou King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions, or whom discord keeps aloof and call them back to the harbour of truth and unity of faith, so that soon there may be but one flock and one shepherd.

Be Thou King of all those who even now sit in the shadow of idolatry or Islam, and refuse not Thou to bring them into the light of Thy kingdom. Look, finally, with eyes of pity upon the children of that race, which was for so long a time Thy chosen people; and let Thy Blood, which was once invoked upon them in vengeance, now descend upon them also in a cleansing flood of redemption and eternal life.

Grant, O Lord, to Thy Church, assurance of freedom and immunity from harm; give peace and order to all nations, and make the earth resound from pole to pole with one cry: Praise to the Divine Heart that wrought our salvation: to it be glory and honour forever. Amen.


Consagración del género humano al Sagrado Corazón de Jesús (Papa Pío XI)

Dulcísimo Jesús, Redentor del género humano, miradnos humildemente postrados delante de vuestro altar: vuestros somos y vuestros queremos ser; y a fin de poder vivir más estrechamente unidos con Vos, todos y cada uno espontáneamente nos consagramos en este día a vuestro Sacratísimo Corazón.

Muchos, por desgracia, jamás os han conocido; muchos, despreciando vuestros mandamientos, os han desechado. ¡Oh Jesús benignísimo!, compadeceos de los unos y de los otros y atraedlos a todos a vuestro Corazón Santísimo.

Oh Señor, sed Rey, no sólo de los hijos fieles que jamás se han alejado de Vos, sino también de los pródigos que os han abandonado: haced que vuelvan pronto a la casa paterna, para que no perezcan de hambre y de miseria.

Sed Rey de aquellos que, por seducción del error o por espíritu de discordia, viven separados de Vos: devolvedlos al puerto de la verdad y a la unidad de la fe, para que en breve se forme un solo rebaño bajo un solo Pastor.

Sed Rey de los que permanecen todavía envueltos en las tinieblas de la idolatría o del islamismo; dignaos atraerlos a todos a la luz de vuestro reino. Mirad finalmente con ojos de misericordia a los hijos de aquel pueblo que en otro tiempo fue vuestro predilecto; descienda también sobre ellos, bautismo de redención y de vida, la Sangre que un día contra sí reclamaron.

Conceded, oh Señor, incolumidad y libertad segura a vuestra Iglesia; otorgad a todos los pueblos la tranquilidad en el orden; haced que del uno al otro confin de la tierra no resuene sino esta voz: Alabado sea el Corazón divino, causa de nuestra salud; a El se entonen cánticos de honor y de gloria por los siglos de los siglos. Amén.

Adoration… Wait… What?!

6:00-7:00 am this morning. I’ve taken this for granted. Everyone has been doing this surely. But no, you know, because of Covid lockdowns. Still. But not here. Not since just after Easter, 2020.

Adoration. Jesus so humble.

Renovation of the Monstrance or replacement is yet in the works. Jesus, so humble.

The penance for my sacramental confession was…

“For your penance spend a few minutes before the Blessed Sacrament thinking about these things,” said my confessor.

I had accused myself of perhaps not excluding judgment of motives of those exteriorly presenting untoward speech and/or actions.

“The same tongue of judgment is the same which pronounces the Consecrations at Holy Mass,” he had said.

Adoration: Jesus’ Little Flock insisting

Adoration on Good Shepherd Sunday. The Sheep saved from wolves thank Jesus. He alone is the Good Shepherd.

We now have the “anchor” up where the Tabernacle will be. Slow but sure.

Soon, Monday, what’s on the Gospel side will switch with what’s on the Epistle side. Altar boys will be on the Epistle side and the priest will be on the Gospel side. This is to respect the ad orientem rubrics of the Novus Ordo, right?

As a knucklehead donkey priest, I am happy to get myself out of the way of Jesus so that the emphasis is on Him, so that people are clear that they are at Holy Mass for the Holy Sacrifice, for the risen Jesus who brings us up into His Sacrifice. Finally. Took me long enough. But prayers are bringing even me to point to Jesus.

Jesus is the One. He’s the only One.

Ad orientem: Thank you Fr George. That was really good for me.

Desiring to follow the rubrics, the above just happened to happen. The unsolicited response has been 100% positive, as if to say: Thank you for leading us to Jesus.

And then:

The sanctuary is many weeks away from completion.

Meanwhile…

Tiny monstrance. The pyx in the other broke, again, from too much usage. That little monstrance is from the rectory chapel.

As you might notice, we’re following the rubrics for the Latin Rite also in Prince of Peace.

Just my opinion, but when much of the world is going to hell and so many individuals in the Church are worshipping Satan Pachamama, priests should point to Jesus instead of screaming “Look at me!”

I mean, aren’t we sick of all the soft homosexualist narcissism?

We need to start following Jesus.

Church roof: we’re flying ahead! Meanwhile, inside…

A number of shingle roofs were ripped off and replaced with a super good metal roof at the mission church in Robbinsville this past week. Imagine that. Such optimism! You know why?

Meanwhile, inside the church:

You don’t see it here, but if you could listen in, people are saying the Holy Rosary.

And, yes, don’t worry, all socially distanced, but never from Jesus.

Adoration: very early women rush to the tomb

Some things never change. It’s all women this Easter morning, in their knees, to greet the risen Lord Jesus. But then they will tell the Apostles and the world of their joy.

Resurrexit sicut dixit! Alleluia!

Surrexit Dominus vere! Alleluia!

Happy Easter to all!

Adoration with Jesus’ little flock

Sunday of the Passion of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 6:00 AM above at Holy Redeemer, 8:30 AM below across the Mountain at Prince of Peace.

  • We had Confessions.
  • We had Holy Mass.
  • Communion Calls to the sick and elderly went on the rest of the day. Normal Catholic life.

That’s news these days, amazing news. Who does that?

I just wanted to put this up to provide the good example that our parishioners are giving to the world in having no fear to worship the Lord our God.
