Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Because it’s what men do, edition)

The most blessed and Immaculate ever Virgin Mother of God has in her presence the Man of men, the man’s Man, beyond the Standard of what it is to be a man because of being the Creator and Redeemer and Savior and as He Himself said Friend of each and every man, her Divine Son, Christ Jesus, the very Son of the Living God, who will Himself come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire, and, mark my words, He will do this with His dearest Mother at His side.

Jesus honors His Mother. We cannot honor His Mother more than He does. Did He not create flowers for His Immaculate Mother? Yes, He did. Is it permissible to take from what is His to pass this on in our little way to His Mother? Yes, it is. He expects it. He demands it.

  • “But Father George! Father George! You don’t understand! It’s really wimpy for a man to give flowers to his mother since it kinda proves that he’s weak and a nothing and surely hasn’t growed up at all.”

Mothers disagree. Anyway, I should like to continue inasmuch as I have life and breath in this world to give flowers to the Immaculate Conception, also praying that those who condemn dearest Mother Mary as a demon (yes, it happens, a lot in these back ridges of Appalachia) to the end that they might join me teaming up with Jesus, the King of kings, the Lord of lords, the Prince of the Most Profound Peace, in honoring His, our dear Mother. It’s what men do, men who thank her Son for what He has done for us.

Men who think they are men but are not are the one’s who deny her, betray her, she who stays with her Son while they deny Him, betray Him, all run away from Him. They’re men, right? Wrong. Not until they learn to give a flower to her. But they cannot, will not do that while they deny Him, betray Him in the least of the brethren, which is what is happening today, bishops who say that abortion is kind of good in some circumstances, you know, for the murderous “miraculous” vaccines that don’t work and are not vaccines. They cannot, will not give flowers to Mary because she will ask them about their murderous attitude against those in the womb just as her Son Jesus was in her womb for nine months. They are happy to disrespect Jesus and His Mother, saying that they are heroes, real men, men of consensus. Where oh where did we ever see that in the Sacred Scriptures, that we have to be men of consensus, conforming the Church to this fallen demonic world? No where.

Real men respect Jesus and His Mother. Of course they do. What kind of monsters would say that is a “fetish”? Yes, I’ve heard that from a bishop (not in this diocese!). But we pray for them. We need everyone back on board to fight the good fight of this ecclesia militans, this Church Militant. Can we even say that? Yes. A flower for you, Mary.

Oh, and I would give that flower to Mary now, before the judgment, when she will be standing next to her Son. Jesus saw her intercede for us under the cross. Jesus will ask her at our judgment whether or not she interceded for us under the cross. She will say “Yes, but he rejected my intercession; he didn’t know me.” And Jesus will say, “Depart from me, you evil doer. I never knew you.”

Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Shadow notices, edition)

This is the Morris Rose, the best of the year for sure. For you, Mary, from Morris (RIP).

Meanwhile, that’s Shadow-dog in the background. More on him and Laudie-dog, suddenly healed, later.

Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Yep, edition)

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is wp-16318791871469099162673921057161.jpg

This is the Morris rose, which had a tough life this Summer, what with me having had Covid and then pneumonia. No weeding. No pruning. Neglect. Yep.

Morris himself had a tough life. He’s my hero in any number of ways. Yep. To him I say, Thank you, Morris. I offer Holy Mass for the repose of his soul regularly.

My favorite meditation is about entering into heaven, not because I’m presumptuous about myself making it to heaven, rather because it is so instructive about why not to be presumptuous at all. I imagine that there is a glorious parade through the pearly gates constituted by souls who know what it is to have suffered because of living righteously by the grace of God in a terribly fallen world that is the sworn enemy of all that is good and holy. Yep.

Outside of Christ our God, Divine Son of the Living God, Son of the Immaculate Conception, there is no one who was more beat up by the hell of this world than the dearest good mom of Jesus. So, a Morris rose, a “Yep” rose for you, Mary. You understand. Thanks for being a good mom to Jesus and to us.

Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (persecution is darkest when…, ed.)

Stupidly, I mentioned to another priest the horrific persecutions this past century has witnessed. He immediately corrected my stupidity, no matter the hundreds of millions murdered by communist cruelty that I had recounted. It’s likely that they will be on their way to heaven, he said, but that’s not necessarily the case when the persecution is actually the darkest, such as we have here in these U.S.A.

He explained what Sacred Scripture has to say about the most terrible persecution, the proliferation of pastors who are wolves in sheep’s clothing, who fatten themselves by their own destruction of the Little Flock. Evil pastors, priests and bishops, who are running breakneck into hell and making sure that the sheep run with them into hell constitute, in view of each soul and in view of eternity, the worst persecution, bringing souls to hell for eternity.

This was brought to my attention another way after the Vigil Mass last night. A couple all the way from Florida thanked me profusely for my homily. I tried to get out of it, pointing to my guardian angel but they continued to insist. My homilies are ever so mediocre, and to have them hailed as being so good doesn’t reflect on the homilies so much but to the fact that there are so many who are apostate heretic wolves in sheep’s clothing who have nothing whatsoever to say in their homilies that will be an occasion for the Lord’s Little flock to be brought closer to Jesus. No matter what I say, it will be better than what the wolves have to howl on about. That’s scary. In any other time, my homilies would be seen to be the mediocrity that they are. Yikes!

Meanwhile, one of the last Jasmine flowers for you, Mary. You survey all the hell into which this world runs. But the cross shines out brightly in the darkness. The Lord’s Little Flock overlooks the ineptitude of non-wolf shepherds if there is any effort whatsoever to point to the cross in the midst of the darkness. They notice the cross, and then the one standing next to the cross, you, O Mary. So a Jasmine cross for you.

The last of the October Beans were harvested the other day. It’s not even October! Organic gardening has it’s weirdnesses for sure. It being this late in the season these flowers had no chance of turning into beans. Everything is pulled up now. There are plenty to plant this next year, ensuring lot’s more flowers for the Immaculate Conception. Just my opinion, but we will need plenty of flowers to give to Mary as time marches on. Just my nsho, but times will get much worse before they get better, much darker better lightening up. More on that later. Meanwhile, these for you, Mary, while we can.

No idea what these small purple flowers are. They’ve been growing in a planter bucket discarded from the outside of the church and now next to the rectory for many years. They’re quite small. Unobtrusive. Just super stubborn. They will continue to churn out flowers for the Immaculate Conception in the worst of circumstances. Incredible. A good occasion for an examination of conscience on the state of my own soul in these dark times. Giving flowers to the Immaculate Conception isn’t so much about any of us giving flowers to Mary, is it? No. Jesus provided the flowers for us to give to His dear mother. Then it’s not so dark anymore.

Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (mum’s the word, edition)

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is wp-16318787798721262422369775498171.jpg


  • Friday Noon there was a sotto voce Holy Mass in the parish church. :-)
  • Friday Night was the Eucharistic Holy Hour in the parish church with time for quiet adoration. No Pachamama here. :-)
  • Friday Night was Last Rites out of State at Union General, quietly taking place in an overflow Covid Ward. A good friend very much appeared to be in his last moments. I returned the next day, lots of quiet prayers in between for a good friend. He survived, so far. I quietly repeated the Last Rites.
  • In between those visits, a foray was made further down into the Peach State, down to the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office. I was inside for five hours+. More courses updating info for Law Enforcement chaplains. Three more modules. One of them was on confidentiality. Here’s a slide of that:

Basically, mum’s the word. Of course, I was already well versed in all this, being a Catholic priest who has to keep such as the Seal of Confession.

If you were expecting that we would be talking chrysantheMUMS here… No. I have none to give. I would if I could.

The special mum here is about keeping quiet. Mum’s the word, which refers to an old middle German word for one who keeps his mouth shut. It’s a bit ironic, that saying, speaking of a word for not speaking a word, “mum’s the word.” Sorry.

The quiet of Jesus, having given His all on the Cross, in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, speaks loudly through the quiet sacraments today, often provided when all is mum. And there is Mary, Jesus’ mum, at His side. All is mum, well, in lots of ways. So, flowers for you dearest mum, even if they are not mums. You know what it is to keep mum with your dear Son. And teach your priest sons to keep mum as well.

So, no matter what, lots of flowers for you, Mary.

Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Our Lady of Sorrows, edition)

This feast day of Our Lady of Sorrows follows the feast of the Exaltation of the Cross. Throughout my life the two feast days of John the Baptist (his birth and martyrdom) and also the tandem feasts of the Exaltation of the Cross and of Our Lady of Sorrows have brought life changing events to yours truly.

Don’t get the wrong idea. That’s not because I have much of any reflection of Jesus and Mary and John in my life. Just the opposite. It’s because I need all the help I can get and I need to pay attention to dearest John, to the cross, and to the sorrows of our Lady (hint: because that’s not what I do on my own, wretch that I am).

To make this post short and sweet, recall the comments of the Venerable Fulton J Sheen on anyone’s autobiography, who our lives are written out in the wounds of dearest Mary’s dear Son, Jesus. There I am for all to see, and you as well:

Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Happy Birthday to you, Mary! edition)

We’re happy that Mary Immaculate, Mother of God, of her Divine Son, Christ Jesus, was born of Saint Anne her dear mother. A joyous day. Use the scroll arrows on the picture above. All great flowers for the Immaculate Conception on her birthday! Yay! Flowers for you, Mary! These were all taken on the vigil, yesterday.

Saint Anne kept Mary safe in her womb from the murderous pharmaceutical laboratories wanting to drag any pregnant woman like herself into their sterile laboratory conditions so as to rip the likes of little Mary out of her womb, then ripping out the organs of the likes of dearest Mary so as to do research and/or develop and/or test “vaccines.” Thanks for protecting dearest Mary, Saint Anne! Thank you!

Meanwhile, I don’t know how it is that priests and bishops can celebrate Holy Mass on this day in honor of the birthday of the Queen of heaven and earth, angels and men, the Queen Mother of God, when they themselves have gotten any of these murderous “vaccines”, encouraged others to do so, even making their church campuses into injection centers, even lending their diocesan newspapers into the hands of the murder propagandists who insist on such murder.

Maybe they pretend that in offering Holy Mass in honor of the birthday of the Immaculate Conception their hypocrisy will be accepted as more flowers for the Immaculate Conception. No. Guardian angels will swat away any flowers given in hypocrisy. Mary should be getting only flowers simply given in her honor, which means the person giving them honors her own Son, and respects those made in the image of her Son.

Here’s another slideshow of just a few flowers for the Immaculate Conception through the years:

Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Just use honey, edition)

You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar, with the point being to kill as many flies as possible.

But, of course, there are some who think that it’s not about playing on the instincts of the flies. Instead, it’s all about obliterating them all by brute force. Attracting to kill is a show of weakness. Just kill ’em all!

However, if you put out honey, killing the flies, you might also at the same time and in the same way attract honey bees, and that will be good all around for everyone and everything. And it makes for lots of pollinated flowers for the Immaculate Conception.

The “just kill ’em all!” crowd – if they would just take a breath – might see that what they thought were flies were actually honey bees, which help them, nourish them, make life sweet for them. “NO! JUST KILL ‘EM ALL!” Sigh.

I might have added some appropriate categories and tags to this post, just enough to get killed. All for you, Mary, you who stood under the Cross when the Lord of the Flies was attacking your sweet Son, who will, of course, come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire. Amen.

Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Jesus asks Mary “Do I know him?” ed.)

Jesus told us about how the judgment is going to go down, warning us:

  • “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you evil doers!’

But I imagine something more with this, that there will be other exclamations, say, by priests and bishops:

  • Did we not push for babies to be killed to get “vaccines” for ourselves, you know, those babies who are made in your image, who, like, you know, are also the little children of Mary just like you, and isn’t that really cool of us?

And then I think of a sudden, right there at the judgment, Jesus will become just a little child, and as all good children, will ask His mom whether or not this is a stranger or someone we know. And then Mary will say one way or the other. If Mary deems us strangers because we spent our lives killing the image of Jesus in the womb for, say, researching and/or developing and/or testing “vaccines”, Mary, who carried Jesus for nine months in her womb will say: “I never knew him.”

And that’s when Jesus will say those most frightening words: “Depart from me, you evil doers. I never knew you.”

At the judgment, I would instead like to be the little boy who hands Jesus a flower for the Immaculate Conception, that is, after He says: “My mom remembers you, and so you’re my friend, so I’ll give this flower to her for you. Enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Look, all those others whom you protected while you were on earth; they want to celebrate your entrance into heaven.”

Dearest Mary Immaculate, Mother of God, Queen Mother, Queen of Heaven and earth, of angels and men, I think there are many of us who would like to give you a flower personally in heaven. Please intercede that we will have the grace to protect the least of the brethren here upon earth.

Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Queenship of Mary, edition)

The Ark of the Covenant, the Queen Mother, clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, crowned with the stars, Queen of angels and men, of heaven and earth, the Queen Mother. Ahh… a close up of her face:

Some flowers for you Mary, that are today just outside the rectory…

The Immaculate Virgin Mary’s Divine Son, Christ our God, dear Jesus, will come to judge the living and dead and the world by fire. But, given that, His mother will be right beside Him as He does so. I think it is particularly those sins against life in the womb, usage of abortifacients, procured abortion, experimentation and research on babies in the womb for vaccines, etc., will be delegated for judgement to Mary. Guaranteed, this is one mulier fortis, stronger than all men put together. But, she needs some flowers. For you, Mary, our Queen.

Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Anthony of Padua, edition)

This scene is out front on the rectory steps. The lettuce grew a bit high, went to flowers and is now going to seed. When I see these flowers and this great scene of Saint Anthony with infant Jesus encouraging him to continue preaching the Word with all divisive spirit (ineffective in the eyes of the world, in the eyes of the “men of consensus”), I know that this is about Saint Anthony giving his preaching over to Jesus’ mother as flowers for her. For instance, here’s a great quote from Saint Anthony:

  • “Mary provides shelter and strength for the sinner. Earthly riches are like the reed. Its roots are sunk in the swamp, and its exterior is fair to behold; but inside it is hollow. If a man leans on such a reed, it will snap off and pierce his soul.”

So violent! I love it. All for you, Mary.

The only way to get souls for Jesus, for heaven, is to treat them as they are, that is, as creatures with great moral capacity, which, however compromised in the weaknesses of original sin, is enlivened by the joy of the Holy Spirit:

  • Hey! That priest took me seriously! He’s the first one in my life to take me seriously, warning me of hell, encouraging even me to go to heaven! Hey! I’m gonna go to Confession so that I can be close to Jesus and, with His grace, be on my way to heaven! Yay!

That’s what happens with all that which is divisive and ineffective in the eyes of the world. Souls are saved. People are filled with joy, and are humbly thankful to the Lord. Saint Anthony, pray for us. Lead us to Mary, to Jesus.

Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Last laugh, edition)

The Jasmine are just now exploding in honor of the Immaculate Conception out front of the rectory. The Jasmine is held up by “Brake Man”, a monstrous image of Adam, made entirely of brakes, Adam, who put the brakes on sanctifying grace for all his descendants, but immediately provoking the occasion for the promise of our redemption to be made by Yahweh Elohim in Genesis 3:15. The Jasmine are little pure white crosses, the perfect image of God’s grace shining out from the souls of all those being saved, and that salvation, you have to know, is happening all the time everywhere. There’s much darkness and chaos. But Jesus and our Blessed Mother are always at work having those crosses of purity of God’s sanctifying grace blooming in the souls of the elect.

With Saint Ambrose and Saint Augustine exclaim: “O felix culpa quae talem et tantum meruit habere redemptorem” — “O happy fault that merited such and so great a Redeemer”.

That Woman of Genesis 3:15, the Immaculate Mother of the Redeemer, will have the last laugh with her Divine Son over that “happy fault.”



But where would we be if we do not have a good sense of humor, which, as Chesterton says, is necessary for believers of whatever age, whatever culture?

Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (UPDATE: Lavender Mafia, edition)

These have been coming up for years, since before this little “hut” was called a rectory, before I got here. They’re right out front, now near the more recently installed statue of the Immaculate Conception.

I’m guessing that they are not any kind of hyssop, but rather a local variety of lavender. As you may know, there was a fad some years ago to refer to the homosexualist mafia in the church as the Lavender Mafia, the “Gay” Mafia, you know, those who promote their own kind and marginalize all others according to their style of sin.

But in my view, all flowers were created by Christ our God (whom the homosexualist mafia ignores) so as to give some joy His Blessed Mother and ours, He passing on any flowers to His dear mother, even from us, wretches that we are:

But there’s more to this than merely re-claiming creation away from the monsters and to proclaim the proper place of creation before the Creator and Judge of all.

I purposely give these lavender flowers to the Immaculate Conception also because of how they have been hijacked and besmirched. The lavender mafia goes out of its way to destroy the image of God as revealed in human nature and described in Genesis as male and female, marriage and family. The Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception redeemed us by His marriage with His Immaculate Bride, the Church, laying down His life in His wedding vows at the Holy Sacrifice: This is my body given for you in sacrifice, my blood poured out for you in sacrifice. He suffered to set the image of God right again; He suffered to gain back all of creation. Restaurare omnia in Christo, to restore all things in Christ, right? The Immaculate Conception suffered to remain in solidarity with Him whilst He was on the Cross. With that redemption, all perverted recategorizing of creation cannot hold. Everything goes back in it’s proper place before God. I myself have suffered because of the “lavender mafia.” I prefer to call them the homosexualist mafia, and give the flowers to the Immaculate Conception.

I’m sure Mother Mary is happy to receive even lavender flowers as cut off from any connection with nefarious mafias.

UPDATE: A snarky feisty reader sent in this scientific exactitude:

  • Gayfeather (Liatris spicata) is a flowering perennial plant with tall spikes of showy purple or white flowers. Also called blazing star or prairie star, Liatris spicata grows in clumps and prefers moist, marshy ground. Blazing star flower spikes grow between 1 and 5 ft. (0.3 – 1.5 m) tall. The impressive gayfeather flowers mean the plant is ideal for planting individually or mass planting along borders in full sun.

So, I was mistaken, but not really. I got the message right all the more. Hahaha.

Diocesan Pachamama-idolaters blaspheme & tell Jesus’ Little Flock to F***-off

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – The Prayer to Pachamama posted by Caritas Venado Tuerto – Walter Sanchez Silva/CNA – August 6, 2021

The Diocese of Venado Tuerto’s Caritas branch apologized Tuesday for having posted on its social media a prayer to Pachamama, an Andean deity. [But they didn’t apologize. They just told Christ’s faithful to F-off, as we will see.]

“The pachamama is a symbol of fertility, of the earth and the sacredness of life. It is a myth full of spiritual meaning (that) can be used to advantage,” said the now-deleted Aug. 1 post. “Some religious festivals have a sacred meaning and are occasions for gathering and fraternity. These are the new paths for the Church and for the achievement of an integral ecology. Holy Father Francis [Descriptive instead of titular. Sycophantic.]. #somoscaritasarag #caritasvt #equipomagrevenadotueto,” the post said. The prayer read:

  • “Hail Pachamama, sweet source of our life, may you be forever venerated. [The demon-idol is praised as the Almighty Creator of Life. In their blasphemy of using the Scriptural greeting of Saint Gabriel to the Immaculate Virgin Mary (Luke 1:28) as traditionally translated in Spanish as “Dios to Salve” (“God redeems you”, the blasphemers are obviously trying to replace Mary as Mother of God with Pachamama “Mother Earth”, saying that some amorphous “god” of the broader inanimate universe has brought the demon to be life giving. Hell…] Blessed are the fruits of your womb [because everyone alive brought forth by Pachamama is a god], our daily bread [and in a time of almost no one believing that the Most Blessed Sacrament is the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus, every demon-child of Pachamama is held to be the Eucharist themselves], may you be blessed now and forever [But don’t think that looks to heaven in future. No, no. There is just the nihilism of death. Mind you, living children are buried alive in Sacrifice to the demon Pachamama in honor of this darkness, you know, as a way to bribe, placate the death mongering demon]. Look with compassion, Holy Mother, upon the human pack that destroys you out of ambition. [That refers to people getting food…] Blessed be your clemency Pachamama [a death mongering demon is clement?]. My land preyed upon by madness. You are the source of life and joy. Pachamama, holy land, Holy Mother, Virgin Mary.” [You know, really, truly, I’m starting to understand the Spanish Inquisition of the past. I’ll tell you this as an absolute certainty, Jesus, Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception is not joyful about this, and He will come to judge the living and the dead and these freak idolaters with the fire of truth and holiness.]

[…] The posting of the prayer drew massive pushback on social media, leading to its deletion. Cáritas Venado Tuerto posted Aug. 3 on Facebook:

  • “We want to apologize to those who felt offended by our post about Pachamama [In other words, they are not apologizing. They are simple telling everyone that they are stupid, so stupid, in fact, that they got offended. And that, for the blaspheming idolaters of demon Pachamama is really stupid. This is a non-apology apology. Just. Wow.], the intention was to communicate our communion with Francis who in the Apostolic Exhortation Querida Amazonia says to us: ‘It is possible to take up an indigenous symbol in some way, without necessarily considering it as idolatry. A myth charged with spiritual meaning can be used to advantage and not always considered a pagan error. Some religious festivals have a sacred meaning and are occasions for gathering and fraternity, albeit in need of a gradual process of purification or maturation. A missionary of souls will try to discover the legitimate needs and concerns that seek an outlet in at times imperfect, partial or mistaken religious expressions …’ (79). ‘Such a spirituality will certainly be centered on the one God and Lord, while at the same time in contact with the daily needs of people who strive for a dignified life…’ (80)” [This is the rationalization of an antichrist, who rejects our Lord and His Blessed Mother, accompanying idol worship of demon Pachamama: ///sarcasm on /// “No! We said it’s not necessarily idol worship! So we can go ahead and bury children alive in honor of Pachamama so as to accompany demons and their idolaters, you know, until they, you know, like, go to hell and stuff like that there, so, like, it’s all good and stuff.” /// sarcasm off /// Francis has taken the demon idol Pachamama and has caused this Abomination of Desolation to be enthroned where it must not be by divine mandate. Just because Francis says Pachamama worship is not Pachamama worship does not mean he is telling the truth.] […]

Here’s the deal: God created all to unite all of creation in the Second Person of the Most Holy Trinity, now Incarnate, Christ Jesus. He came among us by way of His Immaculate Virgin Mother as overshadowed by the power of the Holy Spirit. He created creation in such manner that she, His Mother, could have all that is necessary for her to be a good mother to Him and to all of us. I try to express this in simple ways on this blog, such as with a years long series of posts called “Flowers for the Immaculate Conception”, flowers created by her Son that we might have the joy of giving those demonstrations of thankfulness of love to her, and she might have the joy of receiving them, and Jesus might have the joy of seeing her joy.

Giving a flower to Mary by way of her Divine Son Jesus is much better than worshipping the death demon idol Pachamama, causing the living symbol of that demon (red flower) to be enthroned as the Abomination of Desolation where it must not be by divine mandate.

Meanwhile, Pope Francis says that the lex orandi, the law of praying, which gives rise to the lex credendi, the law of believing is invalid, reducing the law of praying (Jesus offering Himself in Sacrifice for us – the Innocent for the guilty – in obedience to the Father, so as to have the right in His own justice to have mercy on us)… reducing the law of praying to being a mere rite, dissing that rite, thus dissing our assent to the faith in that very sacrifice. In doing this for one rite he does it for all rites, including the Novus Ordo, the New Order of Mass. Thus, he wipes away all faith from Adam until now, so that he is free in his own mind to create a new faith. Don’t think that the choice of the demon-death-idol-Pachamama, to whom people are sacrificed, is just a mistake. An oversight. No. We live in dangerous times.

Immaculate Virgin Mary (not Pachamama!) pray for us now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Due diligence, not hesitancy, edition)

Having gotten over my Covid (now with ultra-super-strong-natural-given-by-God-antibodies, having avoided the immorally researched and or developed and or tested vaccines, using parts ripped form live babies, murdering them) and Pneumonia (whew!), I’m going at breakneck speed, sprinting. All in God’s providence that I’m strong to face what is coming, even this very day.

One of the things I’m facing is my own take on Traditionis custodes. I have very strong views, which lead to very strong action. But I have to do my due diligence. I need advice. I will get that from multiple sources. Due diligence is not cowardice, it’s being as wise as a serpent even while hopefully being innocent as a dove.

Meanwhile, being odiously burdened by those who won’t budge a finger to help (my diocese is, however, great!) and in agony with so many fellow priests and bishops right around the world — ughhh!!! — I noticed this flower right next to our statue of Mary out front of Holy Redeemer Church, Mary, you know, who stood under the Cross of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass while all the Apostles ran away. Thank God John came back to stand in solidarity with Jesus’ Immaculate Virgin Mother, with Jesus Himself, King of the Universe.

I want to stand next to you Mary, having returned when others ran away, also to pray for them as you interceded with me with your Divine Son, Christ our God. A flower for you, Mary. Hail Mary…

Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (gardening, edition)

This is a bumble bee, as we called them when I was a kid. But there are also now honey bees that have discovered the garden with its myriad flowers. The bees and the wasps and the humming birds vie for October Bean blossoms (above), making for quite the entertaining playing out of strategies of warfare, you know, among Flowers for the Immaculate Conception. It’s only July, but the beans are getting big:

The Spaghetti Squarrrsh also have their battles on their flowers though they don’t bother me at all, as they are all too busy:

The promises of Spaghetti are being fulfilled while other promises are being… um… squarrrshed… Here’s a picture from a while back:

Today, that too close proximity resulted in this happening:

The Tomatoes, having not been helped by my incapacity, have nevertheless bounced back. The tiny tomato flowers are wildly fruitful now.

Just one tomato plant has fully 28 tomatoes on it, helpfully, at different levels of development to be sure, but, I mean, 28! You can’t count them all here. Some are tiny. Some are hiding behind leaves.

The Morris Rose has experienced another blossom then no blossom cycle, and is back to blossoms:

I don’t know if there will be anything for something like rose-hip tea.

The asparagus patch has a zillion tiny flowers, which will turn into red berries. Some of the plants are foresting already at just under seven feet high:

Meanwhile, the few minutes I take to pull a weed there, tie up a vine there, or perhaps ever water the plants is an extremely welcome break from the chaos in the world and, right now, ferociously in the church. I believe that grabbing a few pictures of flowers in honor of the Immaculate Conception is a wholesome, restorative activity, and I do not believe that this is despised by our Lady, even while she has much to do while the chaos continues. Hail Mary…

In that spirit, just for nice, for the Immaculate Conception:

And another interloper out front with squarrrsh:

But my favorite flower for the Immaculate Conception is the most simple, pure, a Jasmine Cross. Do you see it?

The Jasmine is growing over “Brake-Man”, an image made out of brakes, an image of Adam, who put the brakes on grace with original sin, but he now being given the gift of being able to give such a simple gift to the Immaculate Conception, that little white cross.

Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (just for good, edition)

This was taken while on a trip to the doctor after my bout with Covid, then Pneumonia. A good friend was driving me, and of a sudden, on a back-ridge mountain road, I yelled out, “Stop! Stop!” I had to get this “Flower for the Immaculate Conception.” This fellow says a zillion Rosaries a day. He thought my antics to be most appropriate.

Texted to me specifically to put up on the blog as a Flower for the Immaculate Conception, even though the DNC is hysterically – “beyond even what Putin would do” – wanting to politically, as the government no longer for, of and by the people, wanting to censor text messages, that is, phone to phone, whatever about SnotBook, Twatter and Pacham-Amazon. Phone to phone. How did they not stop a Flower for the Immaculate Conception? Do they not know that Consecration to her Immaculate Heart will militate against the errors of Communism now spread throughout the world. She, the dearest Virgin Mother of Jesus, will bring souls from self-entitlement and only-a-cog-in-a-machine oppression to the joy of belonging to the Son of the Living God, Christ Jesus. But they let it through. Bwahahahahaha.

The one who texted me this Flower for the Immaculate Conception has been asking Mary Immaculate’s intercession for my recovery from pneumonia, and indeed, I started feeling better. This is a thanksgiving. And I thank all who said a prayer for me. You’re all very good and kind.

I had another seven hour saga with the doctor the other day. Much blood was drawn as this was also my yearly physical. He’ll call me later today or tomorrow with the results. But I feel better. Still a little tired, but much better. On that note, I started Keto yesterday, 13 July, 2021, at 231 pounds. I’d like to make it to 189, the same ideal weight my dad’s doctor gave him back in the 1980s. I got to 190 last time I did Keto in a serious way. I know how to do it now.

Meanwhile, I’ll be giving a series of lectures on the women of the New Testament, including our Blessed Mother, ending with an exposition of Genesis 2:4a–3:24. But I needed my health back as a gift from Mary so as to give all that a flower back to her. For now, this flower for you, dearest Mother.

None of that will be texted, so I guess it’s safe from DNC censorship. ;-)

Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Beehives and Seminaries, edition)

Thems is October beans. Unfortunately, so far, it seems that the flowers haven’t been much pollinated, so that the beans per flower ratio is only about 1/100. But if these mature, I’ll have a handful to attempt more next year.

The problem is that I’ve not seen even one honey bee. The pollinating is being done by, of all things, Tomato Wasps, you know, the ol’ Braconid wasp, since I had lots of tomato plants just at this spot last year. But what happened to the honey bees? I do see plenty of hives around WNC, but I don’t know if they are active anymore. I’ve never seen people tending to them, and they look to be relics of the past, before the catastrophe. Most honey bees were wiped out by a honey bee plague quite a few years ago, threatening agriculture.

Hey! An opportunity to do a service to the neighborhood! In a long distant previous life – many decades ago – I used to care for a half dozen hives with bees of the Italian variety.

There’re a zillion references to honey and bees in the Sacred Scriptures, and right throughout the history of the Church. I’m tempted to get one hive. This will take some research and planning and placement logistics.

  • MY QUESTION IS THIS: What’s the variety of bee that is the best for a tiny operation nowadays, after the catastrophe?

Regarding Flowers for the Immaculate Conception, there’re a lot of logistics going into any flowers, wild or domesticated, especially including honey bees…

Analogy: When giving souls as flowers to the Immaculate Conception there are logistics in the background that have to be taking place, as in priests who provide the sweetness of the Mannah from Heaven, sweet as honey, from the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the Sacraments even and especially during times of idiocy such as the Covid-19 lockdowns. Any good wrought by any priests is actually through Mary’s intercession with her Divine Son, Christ Jesus. But there seems to be very few priests who are willing to be the worker bees.

So, we need bee hives, Seminaries, that don’t churn out compromised candidates, but rather young men who are well formed to be dedicated unto death to Christ Jesus, all the doctrine, all the morality, all goodness and kindness and fortitude and conviction and ability to lead, you know, without being given over to the disease of Modernism and all the catastrophic doctrinal and moral heresies of the day wiping out the bees, as it were, and because of that, eliminating the sweetness of the harvest of souls for our Lord.

Jesus commanded that we are to pray the Harvest Master to send out laborers to the harvest. So, we need to get the Rosary going, all those Hail Mary roses, flowers for the Immaculate Conception.

Here in Charlotte Diocese, we have a great Seminary with the best seminarians, best formators, best staff, best administration, best diocese. That’s taken many Rosaries. And we have to sustain them. Hail Mary…

  • Anyway, back to encouraging giving actual flowers to the Immaculate Conception, and the logistics for that: What’s the variety of bee that is the best for a tiny operation?

Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Precious Blood, edition)

These are October Beans. As you can imagine, they won’t be ready until even late October, perhaps November. My old neighbor to the hermitage will enjoy seeing that these finally took hold and are growing well. You can’t get them anywhere except from someone who has kept some of the beans from the previous years. Not all of them will take hold. But you only need, say, five to make a nice soup, so big are they.

July 1 was the Feast of the Precious Blood of Jesus, and July is the month of the Precious Blood. October Bean flowers are quite appropriate for Flowers for the Immaculate Conception to honor the Precious Blood, don’t you think? They remind me of what happens with the Franciscans of the Custody of the Holy Land.

Our Lady knows something about those drops of the Precious Blood:
